Haym Salomon -1740-1940
On January 6 a few newspapers carried an obscure
little item reporting that on that day in Philadelphia a group
of Jews visited the grave of Haym Salomon, whose remains
lie in the cemetery of Congregation Mikveh Israel, of which
Salomon was president during his residence in that city.
The occasion of this modest pilgrimage was the 200th birth
day of the Jewish immigrant from Lissa, Poland, who be
came one of the great patriots and financiers of the Ameri
can Revolutionary War.
To say this is to bring into sharp focus one of the most
ironical situations in American Jewry, for aside from this
news item, buried where the public at large could hardly see
it, Salomon’s bi-centennial was completely ignored.
Salomon’s patriotic role has never received proper rec
ognition in the pages of American history. Only scholars
and research workers who delved into the diaries of Robert
Morris and into various historical documents in the Library
of Congress and other sources, knew Salomon’s story and
realized that he ranked as a great figure alongside our other
Founding Fathers. But in recent years his name has been
brought before the public more and more open and his deeds
have been extolled on many occasions by public leaders.
Three years ago the U. S. Congress by joint action of
the Senate and House adopted a bill expressing the nation’s
indebtedness to Salomon and resolving to erect a monument
to him on public soil in Washington as soon as funds for the
statue would become available from private sources. And
now it is announced that a joint memorial to Washington,
Robert Morris and Haym Salomon will be unveiled this
Spring in one of Chicago’s public squares.
Salomon’s role as a great patriot transcends sectarian
demarcations. His achievement should be a matter of pride
to all Americans, both Jews and non-Jews alike. (Z. Tygel.)

THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY
BETWEEN YOU
AND ME
By PAUL A. PETERS
F. D R.: Talking about peace
moves, have you heard this one
. . . The well-known German sur
geon Von Sauerbruch was com
missioned by the Nazi leaders to
make contact through neutral
countries with certain Allied
sources to sound them out on
peace . . . The surgeon went to
work In Switzerland . . . The
first man he approached was a
former colleague ... A promi
nent Jewish physician, now a
refugee . . . The effort, needless
to say, ended in failure.
CHARLES COUGHLIN: I don’t
suppose you would approve of
this . . . Rabbi Isaac Landman,
editor-in-chief of the Universal
Jewish encyclopedia, preached the
Christmas eve sermon in the
Dutch Lutheran Church, the old
est in Brooklyn . . . Thereby es
tablishing a precedent which
there is little likelihood that you
will follow.
GEN. JOSEF HALLER: Won
der if you still remember that
chilly reception you got in Boston
on your last visit to the United
States . . . When you were very
pointedly snubbed., by., the., then
Mayor Curley who, after he had
been informed of your identifica
tion with anti-Semitism in Po
land, cancelled a formal reception
planned in your honor.
GABBY GOEBBELS: Will you
please explain to your meshu
geneh boss that when we in the
United States predict that he will
one flay wind up behind the hate
ball, we are punning on poolroom
parlance to indicate that he’ll
come to no good end.
SOL GOLDMAN: You are
probably aware that the ZOA of
fice staff in New York is about
to be unionized, following in the
footsteps of the JNF and UPA
staffs.
CHARLES LINDBERG: Zionist
leaders are beginning to wonder
about this flying business . . .
| First, Dr. Chaim Weizmann is
i held up in Lisbon by the weather
-1 bound Clipper and finally sails
[on the Rex . . . And then Dr.
Solomon Goldman is grounded in
Pittsburgh, thus missing his first
Washington Palestine conference
in years . . . But Mendel (JNF)
Fisher still swears by and not at
air travel . . . Airing it to Chi
cago for another of his speaking
engagements . . . M. F., incident
ally, niftied at the Washington
parley that the failure of the
Clipper to leave Lisbon reminded
him of the Clippeh, evil spirit in
The Dybbuk, which refused to
leave the body of the bride in that
mystic play.
CHAIM WEIZMANN: If you’re
broadminded you won’t mind be
ing kidded in the Maurice
Schwartz musical comedy, “If I
Were Rothschild.” . . . The big
gest laugh of the night greets
the gag just prior to your ap
pearance . . . When your name
is announced as among the diplo
mats waiting to be received by
Rothschild, the latter’s “Prime
Minister,” Menachem Mendel,
cracks: “Let him wait; he’s used
to waiting.” . . . Incidentally, the
play isn’t as bad as some of the
general press critics made it out
to be . . . There are plenty of
laughs in it, several nice little
tunes and some clever acting.
A. A. ROBACK: For your in
formation (re your column on
Jewish journalists) it is no par
ticular feat for a Jewish reporter,
leftist or not, to get an inter
view with Bundit leaders here . . .
Fact is, that in the days of the
Jewish Daily Bulletin (r. i. p.)
staff reporters had to shoo them
away from the city room, so anx
ious were they to be interviewed.

So, You Think You Know Chatter?
DEAR ED:-
Here’s my number one column.
That is, it’s my first story. So
there’s nothing like starting off
with a real scoop. When the
Mendelsohns get together there’s
always something exciting about
to happen. Now comes the flash.
Miss Roselyn Mendelsohn of Live
Oak is engaged to Sidney Mendel
sohn of Tallahassee. This an
nouncement comes as a delightful
surprise to friends of this popular
couple. We add congratulations.
Another engagement, already
announced, yet of interest to her
friends throughout the state is
that of Miss Jeanette Kronenfield
of Miami.
Have you noticed Miss Marga
ret Fishier in town a great deal
the past week-ends? They tell
us she’s seeing RED, if you know
what I mean. And w’hile we’re
on these out of towners, rumor
has it that Saul W. is that way
about a certain kosher girl from
BirmingHAM.
PRESIDENT LAUDS U. J. A. AID TO CHRISTIAN
REFUGEES AS “ELOQUENT WITNESS OF TOLERANCE”
THE WHITE HOUSE
WASHINGTON
K ~
January 8, 1940

'
Dear Friends:
1 desire tc extend hearty congratulations
upon the spirit of brotherhood and universal good Kill |
which prompted allocation from the funds of the United
Jewish Appeal for Refugees of generous sums for use through
other agencies in relieving suffering among non-Jewish
refugees.
I heard with peculiar satisfaction of the gift
of one hundred twenty-five thousand dollars to the Catholic
Church for its refugee work, as a memorial to George
Cardinal Mundelein, and of the allocation of a like amount
to the Protestant Churches, through Reverend Doctor George
A. Buttrick, President, Federal Council of the Churches of
Christ in America, for their refugee relief work.
This action bears eloquent witness to the spirit
of tolerance and true charity and affords an example In
good will which could be widely copied with happy results.
Very sincerely yours,
Rabbi Abba H. Silver,
Rabbi Jonah B. Wise,
United Jewish Appeal for Refugees,
342 Madison Avenue,
I New York, N. Y.
Facsimile ot Pres idem Kooscvelt’s lettei iu Kabbi Abba Hillel
Mi>cr and Rabbi Jonah B. Wise, National Chairmen of the 1939
United Jewish Appeal for Refugees and Overseas Needs, praising
the U-J.A. for contributing $250,000 for aid to Catholic and
iVotcciant refugees.
Os special interest to a few
fellows in town is the announce
ment that Philip Selber has been
invited as guest speaker for the
Augusta A. Z. A. chapter next
week. We’ll let you fellows know
what day it is so you can try for
that date with the girl friend.
Bernie Davis and his E. D. have
(finally) set the date of their
wedding. The lucky day is March
3 (1940, of course).
Have you noticed the Julius
Fletcher wedding gift going up
so nicely on Post Street? It
should be ready for occupancy
soon, I understand.
Do you think I’ve startled your
reading public enough for this
time ? Os course I have much
much more exciting news for next
week. So I’ll close quoting the
new year card that Mark HelUn
ger sent to Walter Winchell:—
“A happy New Year, Fourth of
July, Yom Kippur and Hitler’s
Funeral.”
BUZZ.
