Marshall Heads American Jewish Committee ANNUAL MEETING REPORTS SHOW VALUABLE WORK ININK. Now York—Tin* FtftwntU -\ium:»l meetimu of |ho American Jewish com niittee was held on Sunday, November 121 th, at the Hotel Astor. Mr. Louis Mursiuill presided over (lie meeting which was attended hy nhotit fifty members. The chief business'was the presen tation of tlie annual report of the executive committee which dealt with the matters in which the organization had interested itself during the past year. Anti-Jewish Propaganda. In its report, the Executive com mittee pointed out that a year ago the chief concern of the American Jew ish committee “was what then ap peared to la* an organized, well-tinaiic ed. and unscrupulous propaganda against the good name of the Jewish jieople," and that “the past year saw the collapse of this dastardly agitation so far us our country is concerned." The report then refers to the public statement issued by the committee in yon junction with eight other national Jewisii organizations—a statement which "met with a response was most heartening in its enthusiasm," from the press and the church of the cotin. try. Reference is made to the resolu tion adopted on the fitli of December Inst by the quadrennial convention of the Federal Council of the Churches of Chrisc in America, attended by delegates representing thirty denom inations and one htindml and fifty thousand churches and to the so-call ed “Christian protest" signed by one hundred and nincteeu leading Amcri <-ans in every walk of life which was published upon the initiative of John Rpargo. Attention is then railed to a num ber of publications which huve en lightened the American public ns to the baselessness of the absurd necusn. tions against the Jewish people and have abbs! in bringing about the col lapse of the agitation. The publica tions referred to are die scholarly es says of Lucieii Wolf, Mr. Spargo’s “The Jew and American Ideals." Mr. Hermuu Bernstein's "History of a Lie,” Mr. Israel Zangwill's brilliant essay entitled “The Legend of the Conquering Jew" iu his book “The Voice of Jerusalem,” and the article which appeared iu a Paris periodical Over the signature of A. du Cluiylu. u Frenchman who hud spent nine months at a Russian Monastery where Nilus. the first publisher of the Protocols, fosided. The report then refers to the recent disclosure in The Times of Lpndon which had originally professed to !*•- Ucve that the Protocols may In* gen uine. " While the Protocols are so in herently absurd and preposterous that no intelligent person not Minded hy hutred required, them* elaborate analy ses to prove them to ho spurious," says che report "yet there were many who were easily duped into giving them serious consideration, and It should he a source of gratitude to the Almighty that, truth bus again prevailed and that the world can see that ‘lsrael has no secret protocols, no hidden de signs. After all its tribulations, its dreum is still of pence, justice, and of human brotherhood. After all tin* cen turies the word that came from Sinai and the message of tin* prophets of obi are still enshrined iu its heart.” Investigation of Propaganda The Executive committee then states in its report that an investiga tion had been conducted “with n view to discovering the identity of those who instigated die attacks against the Jews of America. It was found that they consisted of a group of Rus sian emigres who hud won the confi dence of some Americans who, iu turn, iiad succeeded in securing the assist ance of others whose cooperation was given either because they were gullible and believed, the fantastic inventions (•f men schooled in intrigue in the Rus. sian police system, or because they already cherished 111-will against Jews and were ready to assist in any move ment thru which they could satisfy real or fancied grudges." "Happily," concludes the statement on this subject.
