"I like Purlin first because it's got a story—a real story—with kings Mini queens, and vi II in us and heroes, and secrets and conspiracies and killings— and all that. It's exciting—and fun ny, too. “Take that old fool of a king—Aha suerus: First, he kills Ills wife on ac. count of ‘Friend Hainan'; next lie turns around nnd kills ‘Friend Ha inan' on account of his wife. “Or take Human himself: Remem ber tlie time when he comes to the King early in the morning, and asks him for permission to hang up Mor decal, and the King tells him to dress Mordecai in royal robes nnd ride him around town like a lord, nnd be his servant? Poor devil! He must have felt as sninll ns a mosquito's toe. “Then there’s another reason why I like Purlin. Most other holidays have so many, ‘don'ts.’ You mustn’t eat this, and you mustn't touch that. Hut on Purlin there are no ‘mustn’ts.’ There’s only one big ‘must’; ‘You must, be jolly.’—that’s all! That gives a fellow a chance to show wlint he can do. Yoii can masquerade like on Thanksgiving; you can play jokes on people better than April Fool’s Day ■ i "Then there's the Slinlnch Monos, j There is nothing like carrying Sha lacli Monos for a good time!

Mother says I'm a 'naslier.' But then, it's Purim: and on Purim you must 'nasli.' Hainan may have been a wicked man. It says so in the Megillah. and I guess the Megillah is right. But if he is responsible foi* Purim, and for the Megillah. and the clappers, and the Slmlach Monos and the Hainan Tashaii and all that—he couldn’t have been such a bail fellow after all. And even if he was, it was so long ago. and he was punished for what he did. Now. I tell you. I forgive him; don’t you ?” The above monologue is from the Young .Imlaea Purim Envelope. THE DENVER JEWISH NEWS The Third Generation By ELIAS LIEBERMAN Edward Barton belongs! to a well known category of Jews for whom one lioliday Is very mneh like another. Fasting and feasting in the Hebraic calendar were all the same to Barton, at least up to a certain memorable evening here to l*e recorded. There was a certain sincerity in his attitude. Nothing Jewish ever got in where he lived, as he himself might have put it. Therefore, why pretend? You cannot fan into flame dead ashes of extinguished fires. Edward firmly In hered there wasn't a single live ember left anywhere in his soul. Of course, when the original Ilarskys first came here, three gen erations ago. tins spirit was non-ex istent in the family. Brand father Israel was punctiliously orthodox. His son, David, immediately after the death of his parents, changed the fam j ily name to Ithrton and joined a Re- I form Synyagog. which he rarol.v at tended. Traditionally, tho. he was still bound with the past, for nil of his earliest memories were Jewish. He even recalled vividly the days when Saturday was tho Sabbath. When Edward was born, however, that in fluence had waned considerably. With muterial prosperity in the silk busi ness had omne a change in point of view. Edward was sent to an exclu sive private school for hoys that ac cepted Jewish students on a strictly percentage basis. In spite of his name, tho authorities knew that Edward was Jewish, and there was-always a trace of tolerance and over-ripe benevolence in tin* manner of tho principal and some of the teachers, which maddened Hie hoy. If this had continued long enough. Edward’s latent Jewishness might have been aroused, for there is noth ing like suffering to make one in dent! fy himself with our ancient race. Harvard with Its liberal atmosphere undid the effects of the prep school. Edward found his own set there—the literary young men. And they accept ed him without reserve. No one both ered with his ethnic past, ns long ns the short stories he submitted to the monthly were little masterpieces of compact phrasing and character! tlon. To lie sure there was the Mo norail Society. Edward lielmiged to it as a matter of duty. But iie attend ed its meetings and gatherings with r.o more interest than he might have given to a group thnt specialized in cuneiform inscriptions. Water goes no higher than its*level. The human spirit rises no higher than its highest inspirations. Edward was not affected. And. therefore. It wns in a mood of detachment thnt lie ac cepted everything Jewish. As n record of eccentric liumnn psy chology. the Jewish renaissance of Edward Barton has interest. It all began with the family album and the chance discovery thnt lie was looking at it on Purim Eve. Thnt evening Edward was to ac company his father and mother to tlie opern. A fit of sneezing, however, reminded him thnt all was not well. “It’s nothing, mother.” lie replied to his mother's anxious query, “but I think I'll lie low to-night. Dad and you go without mo. I’ll spend an eve. ning In slippers and bathrolie for a change. There are oodles of things I want to read, anyhow.” His parents were reassured and it wns with a feeling of relief that he heard the motor ear chugging away. It was while he was in the net of removing his collar that his eye fell on an item in tho evening newspaper, which arrested his attention. This was the caption. Jewish Purim Begins To-Nnight Then followed the usual press stuff about tho celebration of the holiday. Edward read it thru and somehow the idea clung to him ns lie continued the undressing process. “By Jove, I'm a Jew myself.” he muttered ns he began undoing the laces'of his right shoe. With a sense of discovery he con tinued the process. When ho had ar rayed himself completely in dressing gown and slippers, ho wns convinced that Ik* was a Jew. Then he laughed softly to himself. Tho thought struck him ns very funny. He reviewed his past life, his friends and connections, tho life of Ids parents. Then lie laugh ed again. “I’m as Jewish ns St. Patrick.” wus Ids conclusion. He promised himself an evening with Swinhurn. whom of all poets ho liked best. The news item and his own reflections were completely for gotten for a moment in a projected picture of happiness in the company of the great Victorian. He filled tho kettle with water and set it on tin* fire with water and set it on the fire with the fervent com ment. “From too much love of living j From hope and fear set free. J We thank with brief thanksgiving Whatever gods may Ik* That no life lives forever: Thnt dead can rise up never: Thnt even tho weariest river Winds somewhere safe to sen>” This by no means indicated a mood of ennuc or satiation with what life had to give him. It was merely a . gurgle of anticipation at the pleasure * in store for him. \ When he had made for himself a < glass of hot lemonade with a dash of ' something stronger than lemon in it. i < lie began searching for his old copy < or Swinburne. It was missing from < its usual place in the top row of lite r living room book case. j' “Maybe it’s stuck'behind there with < the French Grammar,” he murmured \ * as he thrust his hand hack amidst a < pile of nondescript hooks that were], hidden by the perfectly proper vol-P nines, in their trim leather bindings. < A very bulky book apparently pro- , vented bis hand from exploring forth M er. J Ho wondered what the hook might < ho. It felt unfamiliar. Its back bind. < ing was loose and its pages seemed to M consist of heavy cardboard. Ills < curiosity made him forget Swinburne , tor the time being. Out of the shel- * ter of obscurity lie dragged the strange < book and found that it was an old , family album full of queer photo- J graphs. Vaguely he rememltored see- < ing It, when he was a little child. I? . had belonged originally to Gramlfath- , er Israel, had been given as an heir- . loom to David, hut no longer enjoyed t either its old time well being or pres, tige. The plush cover showed frowzy and bald iu spots: anil flic hack was broken beyond repair. “This is a treasure.” declared Ed ward. “I want to meet my family to-1 night. I’ll hot there’s many a whiskerando in there to whom I’ve never been introduced.” Between sips at the lemonade he he. gun looking at the pictures. First was a photograph of Grand father Israel, one that he had per niitted to he taken by special request of his children. It showed u main with skull cap. high crinkled fore head. ear locks and full lieanl. He was wearing a kind of velvet gabar dine that made him look like a man who belonged to n religious order. A first impulse to laugh was imuie. dlately checked. “Rabbi Ben Ezra.”— thought Ed ward recalling his Browning. He could not help noting the spirituality of the face. , A sudden impulse made Edward turn the pages hurriedly until he came to a photograph of Ids father ns one of the Lodge Officers. Mr. Barton, us First Vice President, occupied a chair to the right of the President. The trousers were stretched at the knees, perfectly smooth and glossy. David Barton looked unusually puffed and bulky. Edward slid the photograph out of its holder, turned hack to the picture of Grandfather Israel and made some comparisons. Besides the father the son looked gross and materialistic. The lines of the jaw and mouth were heavy and drooping. There was a smugness about the face of the younger man that was altogether missing tn the coun tenance of the elder. Grandfather Israel looked ns if the photographer lmd caught him In a moment of ex .illation. Edward hit his lips and mused, j Then he suddenly rose and paced over j to the bathroom. The cabinet mirror ; reflected a clean sluiven young man with a somewhat troubled face. Ills father’s absorption in business and Ills grandfather’s concern over af fairs of the spirit formed the subject j of his thoughts. It seemed as If each j man’s life, after all, was reflectihl in j his fail*. David had pursued and sue- 1 cessfully caught the elusive dollar: Israel had kept faith with a l'ower | higher than himself. What began to j worry Edward ns he gazed at Ids own I reflection was to discover whether lie | was drifting. In the half shadows and : half lights of the mirror it seemed ; to him ns if he looked too much like I his father. Then it came to hint swiftly that wlmt his father had deliberately thrust aside was the very essence of his race —lts spirltualityy. the quality that had originally made the Jews God's people. David had bartered his birth right for a mess of pottage. The human mind works* curiously. There was released in Edward a flood of cu riosity. Once more he rend the item in the evening paper: Jewish Purim begins tonight. Then before going to sleep he read the article about the Jews iu Ills encyclopaedia. Dully he blamed himself for not hav ing done it before. That night he went to sleep with a j brain that throbbed to unwonted stim nil. In dreams, with the confused se quences common to sueli conditions of the mind, he saw the Mnccabbees at tacking Human, while a group of liar , vnrd students .among whom he rec ognized most of his friends, gave the favorite college yell. When Mr. and Mrs. Button returned / from the opera, the father spied a vol-1 time of the encyclopaedia open as if j someone had just been reading it. lie 1 j noted that the article which Edwnrd ; had apparently read dealt with the i Jews. "That’s a funny tiling to rend about.” he told his wife. —American Hebrew. M. Pnzony. a Hungarian Jew. has bequeathed 2*3,000,000 kronen to Jew- J ish charities in Hungary.
