I "'Anti-Semitism Is Increasing
“A Jewish problem exists, because it has been manu
■ctured artificially. Many Jews have based undue optimism
■the fact that Fritz Kuhn and William Dudley Pelley have
■ n completely discredited, that several German-American
«nd branches have disbanded, that 17 Christian Front
tbers have been arrested, that the Russian-German pact
■ destroyed illusions about communist and nazi ‘idealism,’
|d that the Silver Shirts are reported to be folding up.
| “Nevertheless, Father Coughlin and Joseph McWilliams,
|ad of the Christian Mobilizers, are continuing their anti-
Imitic operations; the nazi Bund ‘has not abandoned its
|ul objectives —it has changed only its tactics’; American
Eis, far from having folded up, are going underground;
■ d nazi propapanda that comes direct from Germany is in-
Easing rather than decreasing. Anti-Semitic material is
|w being sent from Germany to the United States, on Ital
■ and Japanese ships, byway of Siberia, Italy, Denmark,
|d Switzerland. A great deal is also printed in this country,
luch of it prepared by the notorious nazi propagandist,
forge Sylvester Viereck.
I “In the final analysis there is still economic insecurity
lr millions of Americans even in addition to those unem
■oved or on relief, and political perplexity with a bitter elec
|on campaign in prospect. The conditions which provide
Irtile fields for the sowing of anti-Semitism remain.”
•Leonard V. Finder (In the forthcoming March Issue of
f the National Jewish Monthly)

I The United Jewish Appeal
“We regard it as immensely important that every Jew
ft America have a complete understanding of the set-up and
■jectives of the 1940 United Jewish Appeal so that the gi
fntic task ahead of us of raising $23,000,000 be raised this
lear if the minimum needs for administering relief and re
habilitation aid and giving hope to large sections of the Jew-
Ih people crushed by war and oppression are to be met by
lie Joint Distribution Committee, the United Palestine Ap
pal, and the National Refugee Service.”

BETWEEN YOU
AND ME

UNCENSORED OPEN LETTERS
CHAIM WEIZMANN: Have you
heard that Revisionists, when tak
ing a snifter of schnapps, don’t
say “l’chaim!” . . . Preferring the
toast “l’zev” . . . Zev being the
Hebrew praenomen of your friend
Jabotinsky. ... Is is true that
during your two-week stay in
Miami you contacted important
non-Zionists, with the result that
their backing is assured for the
$4,000,000 loan to be subscribed
privately here? . . . And that you
are returning to England the first
week in March satisfied with the
results of your visit? ....
LUDWIG LEWISOHN: We are
reliably informed that you have
made a hobby of collecting old ke
tuboth (Jewish wedding certifi
cates) .... And that you already
have a sizeable collection of them.
... Or is it just a gag? ....
AB CAHAN: Congrats on the
beautiful new city room which has
been built on the ninth floor of the
Forward Building. . . . But a re
cent visitor of yours informs that
you don’t look very comfortable
in your own streamlined office
adjacent to the city room. ... The
entire Forward Building is being
renovated and will be ready by
the first of April
MINNA BROWNSTONE: What’s
this we hear about Hadassah hav
ing a run-in with the Yiddish
press, which is so upset about
some promotion copy you issued
that they have decided to keep
Hadassah publicity down to a
minimum. . . . The promotion copy,
we understand, featured a display
of Hadassah clippings from the
general press, omitting Yiddish
clips. . . . And thus angered the
lads on East Broadway. . . . But
Hadassah is such a good cause,
we’re sure the Yiddish press will
forgive you and forget. . . .
MORRIS LAZARON: it is re
ported that you are about to is
sue a supplementary statement
on Zionism. . . .
AB GOLDBERG: We hear that
all is sholem again between you
and the American Jewish Con
gress. . . . And that you are back
in the fold, this time as a member
of the Governing Council of the
A. J. C. ... As a result of your
insistence, we are told the Council
for the first time in Congress
history was elected, rather than
selected
Congrats to The Nation on its
75th birthday . . . Oswald Garri
son Villard, writing in that maga
zine recently, explains his appar
ent pro-British attitude as fol
lows: ”... I have been in Ger
many and seen the Nazis in their
stronghold, and after that I am
prepared to embrace the Pata
gonians.” . . . Villard’s “Within
Germany” (Appleton-Century) is
worth reading . . . Abe Duker, m.
e. of the Contemporary Jewish
Record, threw what is called a
cocktail party and “schmoosant”
at his apartment the other day.
. . . Guest of honor was Ingrid
Warburg ... A New York after
noon paper has a make-up man
with a grim sense of humor . . .
At the bottom of a Berlin dis
patch about the number of Jewish
deaths in Nazi concentration
camps, he placed a small ad ex
tolling the virtues of a Jewish
cemetery—in Long Island . . .
Michael Shapiro, formerly of the
Jewish Theological Seminary li
brary, has just come back from
a European trip where he gath
ered material for a book on the
refugee situation . . . The book is
his thesis for a master’s degree
at Chicago University . .
