NEW YORK (JTA)— A plan to

and annihilation has been sub
mitted to Congress jointly by the

bars for “any alien who shall

proper immigration officer or to
the Attorney General that he is

Treatment of Jewish People Index j
To Post-War Reconstruction
Says Silver j
Dr. Silver, addressing the con
vention, said that what the world
will do concerning the Jewish peo
ple will be the true index to the
nature of the entire reconstruc
tion problem that will follow this
war. “If the world will project
the problem of the national re
habilitation of Israel —the people
who have been most ravaged and
victimized in this war, which po
sesses no political power and no
military force to enforce its
righteous claims—in a spirit of
justice, vision and statesmanship,
then there is really hope that all
the great national and internat
ional problems will be solved with
fairness and justice by the states
. men of the world,” he declared.
Pointing out that the right of!
the Jewish people to rebuild its I
| national home in Palestine was
officially acknowledged by all the
j great nations of the world, includ-1
! ing the United Slates, after the j
last war, Dr. Silver said “we ask 1
for no special favors or privil- j
eges. We will build with our own
hands. We seek to exploit no one
and to expropriate no one. We
ask for the sympathetic under
standing of men of good will
everywhere to help a people,
which has served not unworthily

situation, including Palestine.
The envoy, Col. Harold B. Hos
kins, delivered a letter from Mr.
Roosevelt which, it is understood,
contained an invitation for King
Ibn Saud or the Crown Prince to
visit the President to discuss co
j operation in the solution of Middle
Eastern problems. Hoskins also
personally discussed several ques
tions with the Arab monarch and
his advisors, and will report on
these conferences to the Presi
dent.
The President’s invitation to
Ibn Saud coincides with a revival
of the whole question of an Arab
federation. In recent weeks Must
apha Nahas Pasha, the Egyptian
Premier, has been holding a series
of exploratory talks with repre
sentatives of Arab states seeking
a basis for a joint understanding,
upon which more advanced nego
tiations might be based. For the
present, Ibn Saud has been hold
ing aloof from these talks.
$2.00 a Year
Judge Morris Rothenburg said
that a realistic view of the post
war world is not one to give re
assurance to the possibility of the
post-war economic readjustment
of the European Jewish popula
tion. He charged that the doors
of the United Nations are still
practically closed to Jewish vic
tims of the Nazi terror who might
be saved. “Like another black
curtain about to be rolled down
upon the last hope of escape,” the
White Paper of 1939 ominously
threatens to close all further mi
gration to Palestine,” he added.
Roosevelt Says Measures Being
Taken To Aid European Jews
President Roosevelt, in a mes
sage sent to the convention,
stressed that "all feasible meas
ures are being adopted to lessen
the sufferings of the persecuted
jJews of Europe.” Ke expressed
confidence that “the helpful con
j tribution made by American citi
| zens towards the establishment of
a national home for the Jewish
! people in Palestine will be contin
i ued.”
A similar message was received
from Secretary of State Cordell
Hull.
A warning against use of “half
measures or palliatives in the so
lution of the Jewish problem” was
sounded by Judge Louis E. Levin
*’ , retiring president of the or
ization, in his annual message,
■e statesmen and people of the

developed among some of the so
called statesmen of Great Britain
and, to our shame, yes, of the
United States, too—a creed in
which mention of the Jewish trag

Jewish homelessness, seems to
have become taboo, and taboo also
are Jewish Palestine’s brilliant
contributions to the war effort.”
