A letter from a friend in New
Jersey reads: “The news of late is
not exactly heartening to us . . .
Just when we had been rejoicing
because a little had been won (we
thought) . . . and when it looked
as though something might come
of years and years of struggling
. . . but of course, politics and
big money interests couldn’t per
mit a thing like this the wel
fare 1 of a people is much to
Standard Oil But I
guess complaining won’t help
much ... I wonder if talk
if there were enough of it
launched at the proper people
would do any good (I mean sena
tors and congressmen) ... I guess
the population of Jewish people,
down South wouldn’t be able to
make much of a fuss, but New
York certainly could . . . arid are,
a bit, anyway ...”
Well, dear Rose, for your in
formation, the Jewish population
down South has done quite a bit to
make the senators and congress
men sit up and take notice and
try to do something about the
Palestine situation . . . According
to information received, from the
Zionist national offices, one of
the strongest pressure points in

the nation is the South . . .
Talking and writing to our leg
islators in Washington and to the
president himself does more good
than you can possibly imagine . . .
It is the only resource we have
left . . . and it has proven most
effective . . . Here in the South
we are Constantly urging our
people to write to the president
and let our views--be known . . .
After all, this is a democracy,
and if the voice of the people
does not mean something, then
our government would be a mock
ery indeed ... ‘
It is heartening to know that
our voice is heard when we raise
it . . . and I am very proud to
tell you that letters and cards and
wires from the Southern Jews has
done a great deal to force action
in behalf of Palestine . . .
But, I might say to you and to
our Southern Jews, write more
and more notes to the White
House . . . The time for action is
NOW, and it is little enough we
are being asked to do in this
letter-writing campaign . . . Let
American Jewry’s voice be heard!

A letter has also come out re
questing American Jewish men
and women to volunteer for civ
ilian jobs in Palestine to release
Palestinian Jews for service with
the Haganah . . . The need for
civilian manpower is urgent . . .
The request is for anyone that
can fill the job of secretary or
ditch digger . . . For further in-

Film on Anti-Semitism
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (JPS)—
Difficulty in finding a distribution*
outlet because of a feeling here
that anti-Semitism has been suf
ficiently exploited on the screen in
recent months, held up until now
the appearance of “The Burning
Bush,” Conrad Nagel film dealing
with anti-Semitism in Hungary in
the 19th century.
William Lee Wilder, who pro
duced the picture last fall, an
nounced last week that it will be
distributed by United Artists.
He also disclosed the difficulty in
getting a proper distributor, which
he had refused to discuss until
now. The picture is based on a
story by Heine Herald and Geza
Herczeg of an historic Hungarian
trial of 1882 which closely paral
leled the French Dreyfus case.
