BIBLICAL NOTE: Those Nazis
in Poland who exacted an eye
from Jews seeking to cross into
Soviet territory were not exactly
original. ... In the Bible (Sam
uel 1, XI) is told the story of
Nachash the Ammonite, who de
j nianded that the Yabeshites put
j out their right eyes in exchange
! for their freedom. . . . But Saul
came to the rescue and Nachash
and his cohorts were routed be
l fore the price could be paid. . . .
Nachash, incidentally, is Hebrew
for snake. . . .
PEACE NOTE: That 11-point
peace plan which Nachash Hitler
would undoubtedly like the Al
lies to accept envisages a Ger
many quite different from the one
predicted in the following tale
that’s making the rounds. . . .
Time, 1950. . . . Place, a Berlin
school. . . . Characters, Fritz and
Hans, two pupils, . . . How, Fritz
*:ks, was Hans going to spend
s Sunday. ... “I was thinking,”
ans replies, “of going for a bi
'cle ride around Germany.”. . . .
3ut that,” Fritz exclaims, “will
lly occupy the morning! What
>out the afternoon?”
POLITICAL NOTE: If Tom
jwey gets the Republican nom
ation for the presidency, the
.mpaign publicity will make
enty of capital out of this item
his early days. . . . Tom, who
is quite a voice, sang in choirs.
. . . Among them being syna
igue choirs. . . . The Hebrew
ords of the hymns were spelled
at phonetically for him. . . .

ERSATZ YISROEL
The War and Palestine
By ROMAN SLOBODIN
At the very center pf the ring of potential battle fronts
in the Near East, the Jewish National Home, fully committed
to the Allied cause, is nevertheless bewildered and depressed
by developments of the opening phase of the war, wondering
whether the British Government disdains the support that
has been freely proffered.
Swept by a wave of loyalty for Britain when war was
declared, a mass emotion that for a time washed away the
bitterness of political setbacks and brought Englishmen and
Jews closer than they had been at any time since the ad
venturous days of 1917, the Jewish population has become
increasingly disillusioned with the passing months. En
couraged by the English military authorities, the Jewish
Agency, at considerable expense to itself, conducted a reg
istration of volunteers for war service. Almost to a man,
ews of military age enrolled for what they regarded as
)r all practical purposes enlistment in the Allied fighting
•rces. Then, on roders from London and to the disgust of
lglish officers on the spot, this great demonstration of
7 alty was snubbed. Beyond a formal acknowledgement
the Jewish Agency’s notification that the enrollment had
•en completed, with 140,000 Jews registered, no further
tention was paid to it. Soon afterward the Government
•gan to issue calls for small-scale enlistments of groups,
>t of soldiers, but of laborers, mechanics and the like. A
w individuals with special qualifications, including a num
;r of physicians received officers’ commissions. Beyond
'.at, expression of the Jews’ feelings had to be confined
cheering the detachment of Czechslovakian Jews who
iickly mobilized and sailed for France to join the Czech
gion.
The Jewish community was further distressed by the
vernment’s sudden drive against Jewish youths engaged
military training which, though not sanctioned by law,
! always been taken for granted and tacitly or even ac
ly—though unofficially—encouraged. The mass arrest of
oung members of the Zionist Labor Party was the first
?e of the abandonment of this policy. It came as a par
ar shock because most of the group had until a short
previously been members of the daring and valuable
teer “night squads” and railway patrols, carrying out
st suicidal assignments in away which made them the
and joy of their English superior officers. On the dis
ing of their units, they simply went on with their train
md, as far as possible, their security work, outside the
.al aegis. Their sterling records, and the fact that they
! of the cream of Palestine Jewish youth, many of good
lies, numbering professional men, did not save them
» heavy prison sentences.
