New Anti-Typhus Vaccine Found In Palestine A group of Jewish scientists, working at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, has perfected a new technique for fighting typhus and has placed it at the disposal of the British 'Government. Among the doctors who worked on this new and very important medical discovery is a number of German- Jewish refugees, who had estab lished reputations as researchers before Hitler ousted them from the Third Reich. The new technique against ty phus consists of a special process whereby eggs are inoculated with the virus and are used as a vac cine. In London circles it is pointed out that this discovery bears considerable military im portance. Epidemics have often in the past led to the demoraliza tion of armies as well as of the civilian population. Any method for the prevention of epidemics is therefore a contribution of the ut most importance to the morale of the forces. Typhus is and occurs frequently in the East. This discovery illustrates the many ways in which the Yishuv aids in Britan’s war-effort. doctors, that they are ferreting out every Jewish M. D. even from the concentration camps to take care of the Nazi wounded on the Russian front. It was reported this week that 300 Jewish physicians had been taken out of German concentra tion camps for this purp° se dur ing the week and from Hungary also came word that all of the Jewish doctors there are being mobilized for the same purpose. Hungary, it is reported, has be come a vast “mass hospital for the Nazis. The regular hospitals have long been filled. Hotels, schools, private homes and even railway depots have been turned into makeshift hospitals. You see a building which looks like a res taurant—and it was built and op erated for a restaurant, but don t go in there to get a sandwich, for it’s likely to be a hospital. LINDBERGH PREDICTS ANTI-JEWLSH UPHEAVALS New York (JPS) —Charles A. Lindbergh is “especially concerned” with the effects an American defeat in war time would have upon the Jews, and believes “Jews will be blamed for American entry into 'the war and will suffer for it,” writes Roger Butterfield of the former colonel in the August 11th issue of Life Magazine. “If that Butterfield continues, Lindbergh has said that “the anti-Jewish outbreaks that will occur here will surpass those in Nazi Germany, for Americans are ‘more violent’ than Germans.” “Yet,” the writer continues, Lindbergh is not anti-Semitic. In personal conversation he has ex pressed indignation over the Ger Williamstown On the Road to Peace If Mr. Hitler should win this war there is little question as to the kind of peace he would offer a subjugated world. The princi ples of a Hitler peace are carefully delineated between the pages of “Mein Kampf” and one can be sure that the details of the actual military and economic programs have long been painstakingly drawn up by Nazi experts. But if, as we hope and believe, Hitler is ultimately defeated, what kind of a peace program will the democratic victors lay be fore the. liberated peoples? Will we sow the seeds of Versailles all over again ? Have we any idea as to how we will deal with the gi gantic problems of employment, world trade and international or ganization which are certain to follow the making of a peace. What will we as Americans stand for in this once again brave, new world? Decision or apathy? Justice or tyranny? Equal opportunity or oppression? Liberty for just ourselves or for all others? It is easy to say that in the peace we will stand for the right. But a durable peace is not built upon good intentions alone. Confus ion, selfishness, indifference on the part of Americans can only mean that in short space, armaments will be built again and that once more the world will shudder in the chaos. If there is to be peace, it must be planned with all the sweat and brains that we are currently devoting to defense. Newest evidence of the concern of religious leaders is the an nouncement that the Williamstown Institute of Human Relations, sponsored by the National Conference of Christians and Jews at Williams College in Massachusetts, August 24 to 29, will be held as the first national educational forum on post-war principles. The forum will bring together leaders from every field of American life—educators, businessmen, youth spokesmen, community repre sentatives, and labor leaders in an effort to focus public attention on the important issues of peace. Protestants, Catholics and Jews will seek common ground on a common problem. Certainly this is the American way of building for the future. A peace so conceived must be more just and lasting than one written by a small coterie of diplomats in a locked room. It behooves all Americans to give thought to the post-war neace and to the principles that will draw to our side the millions Cnd“2r Ires who have foregone a hope for the future. HiUer has a post-war plan, democrats need a better one. Thousands of Jews are Deported to Nazi-Poland By VICTOR BIENSTOCK LISBON (JTA) —Reports reaching here from Hun gary told of an anti-Jewish reign of terror sweeping that country, with mass arrests of Jews proceeding in all cities and house-to-house raids conducted in the dead of night with entire familes being seized. Thousands of persons have been arrested in the last ten days and have been taken to concentration centers for deportation to Galic ian districts in Nazi Poland. Al ready more than 7,000 Jewish de portees Jiave been put to forced labor, mainly building roads, in the districts, which are now held by the Hungarian Army. A- cable from Budapest quot ing the censored press there re ported that the Hungarian gov ernment is determined to deport at least 55,000 Jews into Nazi held Poland from 'the district of Transylvania which was regained from Russia. The majority of the Jews there have never been Pol man treatment of Jews in Europe. But he has never condemned the persecutions publicly, in any of the 18 speeches and articles he has written on world affairs since September, 1939. Several friends and associates have pleaded with him so do so and he has invari ably refused. His usual answer $2.00 a Year ish citizens. The raids are being directed not only against refugees and foreign Jewish residents, but even against Hungarian citizens whose grand parents were not Hungarian. Well-informed private sources told this correspondent tonight that more than 15,000 Jews had been deported up to July 31, with the raids continuing unabated. They said that Jews who consider themselves subject to action were afraid to leave their homes since they might be raided in their ab sence and the remainder of their family taken away. All local ef forts to intervene with the auth orities in cases of special hardship were said to have failed. De Gaulle Annuls Anti-Jewish Laws In Syria NEW YORK (JTA)—The anti- Jewish laws which the Vichy Gov ernment had extended from France to Syria and Lebanon, French-mandated territories, have now been declared null and void , by General De Gaulle, the Free , French delegation in New York announced. “A message from General De , Gaulle from Syria notifies the Free French Delegation in the United States that the anti-Semit ic and racial laws promulgated by Vichy are considered null and void by the Free French in Syria and Lebanon,” the announcement states.” The Free French only ap ply those laws which have been enacted before the 18th of June 1940, together with the new ordi nances of the Chief of the Free French Forces.” is, ‘I must be neutral.’ ” At the conclusion of a lengthy description of the isolationist fly er, the author predicts that Lind bergh, if the United States actively enters the war—will become “the popular leader of all forces of dis content and disagreement,” rather than to “retire into a silent ‘martyrdom’ and await the vindi cation he believes is certain.” fi umiiiinmiiniiMiiiiiiiiinMmimiHiMmiiiiiiMiiiinifisll | Jewish Calendar I j Join a Synagogue or Temple Attend Its Services 5701 1941 | Rosh Chodeah Elul Aug. 34 | j First Day New Year.
