A National Council For Statistics
Os Jews Is Formed
The Union of American Hebrew j
Congregations, the Union of Or- j
thodox Jewish Congregations, the j
United Synagogue of America,
the Rabbinical Council of Amer
ica, and the Union of Orthodox j
Rabbis, have formed a council for
Statistics of Jews, under whose
auspices the Jewish Statistical
Bureau Is to conduct its work,
Dr. H. S. Linfield, director of the
Bureau, stated. The Jewish Bu
reau cooperates with the United
States Census Bureau in the of
ficial census of American religi
ous bodies. In connection with
this work, Dr. Linfield explained, |
and in connection with the agita
tion a few years ago to introduce
a religious classification in the
United States population census,
which agitation failed, it became
evident that Jewish statistical
work must be done under the aus
pices of our national religious or
ganizations, in the manner of the
other American religious bodies.
The National Council for Statis
tics of Jews takes the place of
the Synagogue Council of Amer
ica, which in recent years spon
sored the work of the Bureau.

Latest Survey Lists Jews In
4,700 Cities and Villages
The latest survey of the Statis
tical Bureau lists 4,694 cities,
villages and rural areas having
Jewish residents, and the number
of Jews in each one. Os these,
967 communities have one or
more congregations; while in the
remaining places the Jews are too
few to have their own congrega
j tions, but they depend on the
neighboring larger communities
for religious and educational wel
fare services. In a similar sur
vey conducted by the Bureau ten
years before, 3,140 cities, villages
and rural areas reported, of which
number only 871 communities had
one or more congregations. The
Jews are widely distributed in the
country, and it is one of the func
tions of the Statistical Bureau to
register the movement of the
Jews from the large to the small
cities and villages.

UNBORN NEWS
Pressure is still being applied to
postpone the American Jewish
Conference, scheduled for August
I 29th. ...The excuse given by those
, who favor delay is that Jews
should not discuss their affairs!
| while invasion of Europe is in
progress. Funny how some people
think John Rankin is concerned
with what Jews say before he
opens his own mouth . . . Life
Magazine is planning a layout on
Jewish work in Palestine as big
as the one given to many-wived
Ibn Saud... The Life photographer
spent almost two weeks in the
Jew ish settlements and cities ...
There is talk of a group of Jews
forming a special committee in
the district of New York from
which Sol Bloom has been peren
nially elected to Congress in order
to give him a resounding defeat
at the next elections, despite his
advanced age. Bloom usually tells
friends that his personal acquaint
anceship with Anthony Eden is
more important to the Jews than
all the organized political activity
they can muster . . . The political
contest that was supposed to be
all cut-and-dried in the Zionist
Organization of America may
have some startling and exciting
surprises.
CONFLICT
The French aren’t the only ones
who can’t agree. There’s a par
allel for the De Gaulle-Giraud
situation between the World Jew
ish Congress and the Jewish La
l bor Committee. The Congress
was first to create a committee of
French Jewish exiles to speak on
behalf of the Jews of their home
land. Now the Labor Committee
has come along with its own exile
group. All we need now is for
the American Jewish Committee
and B'nai B’rith to show that no
body can put anything over on
them and create two more exile
committees. Multiply four dif
ferent French exile committees by
all the countries in Europe and
you get an idea or what chaos
is really like . . . Rumor has it
that a certain prominent Jewish
cleric made arrangements with
the War Department for a tour
of the world a la Bishop Spellman.
But when his colleagues found out
about it they advised the highest
officials that the gentleman was
not the nation’s foremost rabbi,
as might have been inferred by
them . . . That was an amusing
Napleonic exhibition by the shad
owy Yiddish P. E. N. Club of
New York which petulantly at
tacked Mikhoels and Feffer, the
Soviet delegates, because the
gentlemen had not accepted an in
vitation to discuss “the state of
Yiddish culture” with those self
appointed custodians of that
state. Instead an affair was ar
ranged with all Yiddish writers
and artists invited, including
those not good enough for the P.
E. N. Club, which nobody knew
existed until it wrote an invita
tion to the two Russians ....
And talking about peculiarities,
isn’t it strange that although
Mikhoels and Feffer were trump
eted as “representatives of Rus
sian Jewry to American Jewry”
their Jewish status is ignored in
advertisements in daily newspap
ers for the big receptions in their
honor? They’re spoken ’of as
"cultural ambassadors.” “artistic
delegates’’ and every other kind of
fancy verbiage.

INTERNED AMERICAN
JEWS BADLY TREATED
BY RUMANIAN
AUTHORITIES
ZURICH, (JTA) —A number of
American Jews who did not suc
ceed in leaving Rumania together
with the last group of American
citizens, which included the U. S.
Consular staff, are now being
badly treated as “enemy aliens’’
by Rumanian authorities, it was
reported this week by a Jewish
industrialist from Bucharest who
arrived here after many trials and
tribulations which took him from
Rumania through Germany to
Switzerland.
This Rumanian Jew disclosed
that the Nazi authorities in Buch
arest continue to press the Ru
manian Government for more
drastic anti-Jewish action. They
are especially dissatisfied that the
present severe anti-Jewish legis
lation “is not driving the Jews of
Rumania to suicide to the same
extent as in the Reich.”
“Many Rumanians,” he contin
ued. “display sympathy with Jew
ish friends in the hope that when
the present regime falls they will
be able to prove that they were in
