Willkie’s Repudiation of Coughlin
With his outspoken repudiation of the backing of Fath
er Coughlin and anyone else using the anti-racial or anti
leligious rackets, Wendell Willkie brought down upon his
head the wrath of Coughlin’s Social Justice. It is with a
shocked and injured tone that Social Justice discovers that
Willkie really doesn’t like Coughlin, after all.
“Why should any astute candidate,” Social Justice in
quires, “deliberately antagonize Father Coughlin’s many
friends ?”
The answer to that, of course, is that a great many of
Father Coughlin’s “friends” don’t vote—not in this country.
Because most of the readers of this column probably don’t
read Social Justice, we present a bit more of the Coughlin
whimpering.
“Why,” asks Social Justice, “should he single out a pri
vate individual, who for all practical purposes has been
pushed into voluntary silence by those who control the press,
the radio and other affairs?
Since when, may we ask here, has Father Coughlin been
a “private individual?” And can you imagine Father Cough
lin practicing “voluntary silence?”
“And why,” asks Social Justice, “hypothesize Father
Coughlin’s anti-Semitism or anti-racialism when there is no
need to do so ?”
No need, Father Coughlin?
And finally, Social Justice says: “But of more impor
tance, why should Mr. Willkie presume that Father Cough
lin planned to aid him or any other candidate?”
So now it seems that Father Coughlin intends to stand
aloof from the coming election. He will certainly not throw
the mighty weight of his followers—who include Bundites
who can’t vote, not being citizens—to either Presidential
candidate. That, of course, will be a great relief to all con
cerned.
It is unfortunate for the G.O.P. campaign that the is
sue had to come up in the first place. But Social Justice, and
the other Fascist-type publications in this country, began
“buttering up” Willkie immediately after his nomination.
The only thing that could be more damaging to an Ameri
can candidate than a Coughlin accolade, we imagine, would
be a pat-on-the-back by Adolph Hitler himself.
We don’t believe that Coughlin and the Coughlinites did
have any genuine regard for Willkie. But they were certain
they wouldn’t get any sympathy from Roosevelt. They didn’t
know about Willkie. Now they know. (Pat Frank)

PROJECTS: Washington is now
full of projects aiming to alleviate
the plight of refugees abroad. . .
The most interesting is a plan
about the Virgin Islands. . . An ex
change of notes about this is go
ing on between Secretary Ickes
and the State Dep’t. . . Ickes be
lieves that many of the refugees
in Europe who are entitled to Uni
ted States quota visas could be
brought over to the Virgin Is
lands to await there their turn for
the visas. . . This would save the
unfortunates from falling again
into Nazi hands when awaiting
their visas in Europe. . . No spe
cial legislation is believed to be
required for this act, since the Vir
gin Islands fall under Ickes’ ad
ministration. . . The bringing over
of refugees from Europe for a
temporary stay at the Virgin Is
lands would thus require only an
administrative order, should the
State Dep’t. find no objection to
such an order. . .
Another interesting project is
one coming from John G. Winant,
American head of the Internation
al Labor Office. . . Himself one of
the greatest experts on immigra
tion would be a major solution to
America’s economic problems,
should the U. S. be deprived by
Hitler of the possibility of contin
uing to export to the European
continent. . . A large influx of im
migrants into the U. S. would
create new markets here, is the
theory advocated by Winant. . .
We learn that the American Fed
eration of Labor, as well as other
interested bodies in Washington,'
are seriously studying Winant’s
project. . .
Preparations for a moving pic
ture depicting the life of Dr. The
odor Herzl are now being com
pleted in New York by Z. H. Ru
binstein, managing editor of the
Yiddish daily, The Day. . . The
film is expected to be released
soon after the High Holidays. . .
Louis Fischer is now completing
in Long Beach, N. Y., his autobi
ography, which will be published
early in the autumn. . . Aaron
Zeitlin, well-known Yiddish publi
cist and playwright, has been cho
sen editor of Hatkufa, the volum
inous Hebrew literary quarterly,
publication of which will be re
newed by the Shtibel Verlag in
New York. . . Hatkufa was origi
nally published in Warsaw and
later in Palestine.
HILLBILLY: B’nai B’rith’s Ber
nie Postal passes on this story. . .
Rabbi Robert P. Jacobs, of Ashe
ville, N. C., who broadcasts over
a local station, received a post
card from a woman in a mountain
hamlet saying: “We uns listen to
ur rado speechs never seen a Jew.
Com se us so the chilluns can se
a Jew man.” Not one to keep the
women any longer in ignorance,
Rabbi Jacobs and his wife made
the 89-mile trip to the village,
found the pipe-smoking, elderly
woman who had written the card.
The woman showed the rabbi to
her six children, telling them, “He
unsl a Jew man.” For an hour the
family inspected the two Jews,
asked them embarrassing ques
tions. When they left, the family
was smiling pleasantly. The eld
est girl shook the rabbi’s hand and
whispered: “I put her to a-writin’
to ya, preacher man. I’m glad
y’awl could come.”
BROADCAST: A British short
wave broadcaster, reports the Col
umbia Broadcasting System’s lis
tening post, was reading a news
item about the air raid on Tel
Aviv when he suddenly stopped in

now.”
