The Proportion of .lews and Their In fluence in Official Quarters. ‘There have been numelons attempts to show that the Jews are running Soviet Russia. This, of course, can not lie horn out by the Tacts. "Regarding the statements made about tin* influence of the Jews, no one would attempt to deny that there are many Jews occupying responsible portions, hut. ns an Indicative in stance of the true proportion in which they stand in administrative affairs, the figure of the Moscow Soviet may he given. Out of a luemliersliip of 1 fiOO, the Moscow Soviet lias only OS Jews, and that, we have been inform ed. is a fair instance of the numerical strength of the Jews in the various official and authoritative assemblies. "With regard to the personal influ ence exerted by tin* memliers of the Jewish race, reference may Im* made to IVtrowsky who is the president of the National Bureau for training officers. Jlc speaks perfect English and appears fo he the inearnatiou of the revolu tionary spirit. We saw a gymnastic display of the Maccnliee Society in M• • «*ow.* wfiieh*\ r incut of physical training among young Jewish people. They were making great progress in tlielr gymnastic and physical culture exercises, which, we wen* informed, is a distinct innovation in Jewish life. "There still remains, among certain sections of the populace, relics of the old anti-Semitic feeling, hilt, all those in authority are striving to reconcile any old time racial antagonisms 1m»- tweon the various sections which go to make up the vast Russian population. "That there are Jews in favor of revoluticonary Siwialism and Poinmun. Ism. just as there are Jews in favor of international capitalism, is known nnd fully appreciated in Russia, but. (in the whole, conditions among the Jewish sections of the Community are much freer under the Soviet regime than they were under the regime of the Czars. The Jews are actively co operating with the inemlierH of other i-ncvs to restore Russia’s economic and Industrial efficiency. A Message From the Communist "Blind" to the .lews of Western Europe. I was asked by tlioi representatives ol' the Communist Bund, to convey to the Jewish workers of Western Eu rope their felicitations and fraternal ’greetings, hoping that the Jews thru out Europe would do all they could ij ll to assure tin* progressive develop ment of human institutions entirely distinct from racial or religious dis tinctions and divisions.” Jewish Refugees on the Polish Front.

The information they conveyed was that all kinds of out rages and atrocities had been especial ly meted out to the Jewish population.

An appeal will he made for our starv ing. homeless, and sick co-religionists in the dismal, disease ana pogrom rid den countries of Eastern Europe. Since Professor Friedlaender and Rabid Cantor both died while serving as the commissioners of the Joint Dis tribution committee, it was to 1*» ex pected that it would take the initia tivo in the arrangement of the me mortal.

So great has been the woe of Isrnc! in the last few years, so lingo its losses in the lives of its children and insti tutions. that we have almost lieeome accustomed to the iden of death. Death no longer frightens us. The con templation of it did not frighten Israel Friedlaender. When he was told that ids life was in danger and his children niiglit become orphans if lie insisted upon making that last fatal trip, he replied in his own simple manner that there were thousands of hungry starv ing families waiting foe him. and these had children too.

The popular imagination seems able to think of the Jew only in terms of melodrama. It is perhaps some dim response in the mob to the real ro mance of his indestructibility.

By LEO WOLFSON Copyright , 1920, by I. J. P. B. The expected rush of Immigration is nt hand. Thousand*.of immigrants an coming to our whores daily, and mure thousands will doubtless yet come. We have heard much libout Americaniza tion work during the last few years, and wo will probably hear still more about it in the coming years. The problem is an ever pn cut one and deserves continued iittentiou. It is true that no two persons will agree upon a definition of Americanization and particularly upon the method to lie adopted to carry On the work. There exists, however, sota** sort of an un derstanding of what it means and what . it should achieve. In general it may lie said that Amer icanization work menus to bring home to the immigrant the knowledge of American institutions and ideals and thru that, knowledge to create in the heart of the immigrant a love for America-- his newly adopted country Of course, the necessary result such as good citizenship and an interest in the welfare and affairs of the country are expected. The real question, how ever, is how to do the work so as to get 1 the desired results A consideration of the problem shows that there are two important stand points from which it ought to Ik* ap proached: The American standpoint and the immigrant's standpoint. Lot us consider first tin* immi grant’s standpoint. Whatever may la the reasons which brought the iuuni , grant here, at the time of his coming ho had decided to make America his home. Unquestionably, he comes here with the best of intentions. Ib* wants to settle down and to make use of the opportunities the country affords. Many come with high ideals about America. They bine heard «>r read a hour t In* cfTri mrn^^nr its ll»K*rty. of the freedom enjoyed here, of the great possibilities of viv quiring wealth and of the many other wonderful things our country is Mess ed with. What happens to him when he gets here? His first encounter in America, the America he has dreamed about— offer he has reverently bowed before Statue of Liberty, is with Ellis Island. Americans will never understand the impressions Ellis Island leaves upon tin* immigrant, and how many of Ids ideals about America have been shat terod by Ids ordeal in tne purgatory known as Ellis Island. One must have gone thru tin* whole process to realize it. Lot us follow ldm nriefly from the time the steamer docks until hi is released and brought over to the Battery. He is taken fr/nn ids steam er and horded together. Ting and bag gage. with others like liimsclf. upon a barge, and taken to Ellis Island Island of Tears, some call it. There he is handled—l use the word advised ly—without any consideration for him ns n human being, mid sometimes brus quely’ and even roughly, depending up on the temper of the attendants. Tin same da.v or a day or two inter per haps, he is again horded together with others in some mge-like compart ments for the physical examination. I alter he appears before rhe examin ing officials. He is simply bewilder ed by the many questions which nre hurled at him. and sometimes they are. or seem to him to he designed to catch him in some mis statements or con tradictions. Sometimes ho has to ap pear before a Special Hoard of Iti ouiry. where he is again examined and cross-examined ns if in* had committed some crime. If. after all. he lias gone thru, ho is permitted to land, lie is again jammed in with others and taken over to the Battery. I do not moan to charge the officials at Ellis Island with any nets of .-mission or commis sion. nltho there is room for great and many improvements there. I merely’ try to point "Mt how the immi grant feels at his first encounter with official America. It Is a feeling of great disillusionment niul often ac companied by great pain anil anguish, and many a tear. Just, as soon ns lie lias landed at the Battery and has been taken by his | family or agency on the I. or Sub way to his destination, the interest of the Government in him has practical ly ceased, anil except for extraordin ary circumstances, for years to come | he never conies in contact with offi : c ini America.

The decision of the Conference to devote a limited amount of money to Hebrew culture uml education outside of Palestine was not approved by the American delegation, which saw fit to disclaim all connection or responsibil ity with any such move.

Now York—Tin* system by which it is allotted that landlords are manipulat ing the courts to their own advantage and the complete nullification of the rights of tenants was described yes terday by Municipal Court Justice ] Jacob S. Strahl in Ills testimony at 1 i City Hall before the joint committee | oil housing. Justico Strahl described the diffi- j (tilth's with which tin* tenants have to I contend, in the followititt terms: “You gentlemen must hear in mind that the landlord can select his own judttc and when the landlord Is of the hoc-type he always does the elioos ititt. Then the tenant is helpless. These landlords nre certainly resorting to the practice of hand-picking judges in Brooklyn.” When Justice Strahl who has l»een sitting every day until well into the night, deciding rent cases, was asked j for a possible remedy in the recently | passed laws, which will lighten the burden for the tenant, he declared one of the worst things the tenant had to contend with was the ease with which the landlord goes to the Supremo Court and obtain a writ of prohibition or mandamus, which completely ties the hands of the municipal court justices. While the tenant Is waiting for his case to bo called in the lower court, the landlord gets his writ in the Su preme Court and by the time the low er court gets the case, the tenant has been dispossessed. The just let* recommended that the hold-over proceeding laws l*e amend ed, which would eliminate the ruth less dispossessing of tenants when their lenses have expired so that the justice could quietly and properly settle the rent disputes. Some dnys earlier Kdwnrd A.

CZECHOSLOVAKIAN NEWSPAPER ATTEMPTS BLOOD RITUAL LIBEL. By I. J. P. B. PrajniP—A newspaper of Czecho slovnkln is charging the Jews with hav ing murdered u Christian girl for rituulistic purposes. Some time ago. the Christian. Anna llenesoh. who was serving as a maid to the wife of a Jewish man poisoned herself and was found dead in her room. The eoroner established that site died thru uu< poisoning—and to satisfy the cries of the anti-Semites that no blood was drawn off from her body lief ore she died. Investigations, however, do not mean much to the “Stit Naroda.” a Czechoslovakian newspaper. It still chooses to believe that tin* girl was murdered by the Jews in order to use her blood for the l*assover services.
