NATIONAL FRJEDLANDER-CAN-TOR MEMORIAL MEETING AT CARNEGIE HALL SEPT. 9. New York: (By I. J. P. B.) Next September 9th, American Jewry is to mourn for its martyred dead, Profes sor Friedlandcr and Rabbi Bernard Cntor who were murdered in the Uk raine, while performing their duty toward their stricken brethren in that unfortunate land. The memorial meet ing which promises to be one of the most impressive ever held in the city of New York is to take place in Car negie Hall. All the national American Jewish organizations are expected to parti cipate in order to make the occasion 'worthy of the two noble souls who gladly offered their lives to serve their fellow Jews in Eastern Europe. The principal Jewish institutions and societies of learning, particularly those with which Professor Friedlon der was associated, Jewish fraternal organizations, the Free Synagogue, of which Dr. Cantor was assistant rabbi, and other religious congregations are to participate in the memorial which is to be both a tribute to the men who died martyrs for the Jewish cause and a further call to American Jewry to respond generously and graciously to the holy cause in whose service the two great Jews died. An appeal will be made for our starving, homeless, and sick co-religionists in the dismal, disease and pogrom ridden countries of Eastern Europe. Since Professor Friedlandcr and Rabbi Cantor both died while serving as the commissioners of the Joint Dis tribution Committee, it was to be ex pected that it would take the initiative in the arrangement of the memorial. A special Friendlander-Cantor Mem orial Meeting Committee, consisting of Dr. Cyrus Adlcr, Acting President of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, where Israel Fripdlamler was Professor of Biblical Literature for many years, Dr. Judah L. Magncs, Judge Otto Rosalky, Samuel Lamport, Sholom Ash, Mr. Warburg and Stan ley Bero were appointed by Felix War burg, Chairman of the Joint Distribu tion Committee. Mr. Bero is the secre tary of the committee. In response to the call of the com mitee, hundreds of letters, telegrams and telephone communications have been received from various Individuals and organizations all wishing to par ticipate In the memorial meeting. Among these are the Independent Order Brith Abraham, the American Jewish Relief Committee, the Central Relief Committee, the Jewish Publica tion Society, the I. L. Pereti Writers' Society, the Jewish Theological Semln. try of America, the United Syna gogues, the Federation of Ukrainian Jews, the Federation of Polish Jews, and many others. Every day sees this list lengthened. Great surprise has been expressed in some circles that the Zionist Organiztion of America, of which Dr. Friedlandcr was a very prominent member, should not have responded as yet to the call of the Memorial Committee and should not have expressed the desire so far of partaking in the national Memorial arranged for September 9th. The exact program of the meeting, which is to consist of solemn music and of addresses by prominent Jews on the character and life work of Pro fessor Friedlandcr and of Dr. Cantor, as well as the list of organizations which are to take part, will be an nounced later. So great has been the woe of Israel in the last few years, so huge its los ses in the lives of its children and in stitutions, that we have almost become accustomed to the idea of death. Death no longer frightens us. The contem plation of it did not frighten Israel Friedlander. When he was told that his life was in danger and his chil dren might become orphans if he in sisted upon making that last fatal trip, he relied in his own simple man ner that there were thousands of hun gry starving families waiting for him, and these had children too. Israel's eyes are almost dry of tears, but it can still find some to shed over the death of two of its dearest sons.

Schomer, the brilliant Jewish playwright and father of the Jewish Congress idea, is held largely respon sible for the decision of the London Zionist Conference to call a World Jewish Congress. On July 12, 1920, Mr. Schomer sent Professor Chaim Weitzman the following cable: "Weitzman, Zioniburo, London. "Greetings to you and Conference. The only way you can solve the Jew ish question and re-establish the Jew ish National Home is by creating a head for the headless body of the Jew ish Nation in the form of a World Jewish Congress with a Stable Execu tive which should represent and act for All-Israel. As a member of the Jewish people, as an officer of the provisional American Jewish Congress and aa a member of the Zionist Or ganization, I take the liberty of urg ing your conference to take such ac tion. "Signed: Abraham S. Schomer." On July 22nd the London Zionist Conference unanimously adopted this plan and appointed a committee of 5 to make all the necessary arrangements and preparations for the calling of a permanent World Jewish Congress. This committee is to communicate with the leading national Jewish or ganizations in the world and is to request their participation. This de cision is of great historic importance, for the Congress will be the first real ly national Jewish representative body since the burning of the ancient Jew ish temple. M. USSISCHKIYS SPEECH. London: (By Mail) M. Ussichkin, acting head of the Zionist Commission to Palestine, in his address of the World Zionist Conference, declared: "We are living in a great period in our history. It has been given to us to develop the land of Israel political ly, economically, culturally. Every thing possible must be done now. We must see to it that not less than half a million Jews are brought into Pal estine within the next twelve yean. During the first year we must bring into the land 30,000 Jews. We, in Pal estine, will prepare the way for them. (Continued on Page 12).
