Eastland Praises Valor Of Jewish Fighting Men Declaring that Jewish fighting men had “distinguished” themselves in “every' major battle, in every way,” Senator Eastland, Democrat, of Mississippi last night called for “harmony and tolerance in Amer ica.” He spoke in an Army Day program over the Mutual coast-to-coast network, under auspices of the Jew ish War Veterans of the United States. The Senator praised as “100 per cent Americanism” the organiza tion’s statement of principles: “To maintain true allegiance to the United States of America, to en courage honor and purity in public affairs, to combat whatever tends to impair the efflciancy and per manency of our free institutions, and to encourage the doctrine of universal liberty and full justice to all men.” Citing statistics, he said 2,500 Jewish men participated in the Spanish-American War, 225,000 in the World War, when there were 14,000 casualties and 2,800 deaths among their number, and 1,000 re ceived citations of valor. There were 3 Jews out of a total of 78 who received the Congressional Medal of Honor. Already in this war, he said, “2,500 proudly wear the Purple Heart for wounds received,” and, he added, “it was the hands of Meyer Levin, flying with Colin Kelly, that re leased the bombs that sank the Japanese battleship Haruna.” Troops Abroad to Greet Kin in Easter Broadcast Easter messages from members of the armed forces overseas to their relatives and friends at home will be broadcast over the “Army Hour” on Easter Sunday.
