was the first of its kind attempted to
be staged at the local branch of the

In the circus part of the perform

commendable and showed it was the

plause. Ail in all last evening's entertain

due to the careful work of the direc

CALL UPON THEIR
PEOPLE TO FIGHT
Jewish Battalion Which Left
New York Sends Back
On the eve of our departure for
Judea, we the members of the First
Contingent of the - Jewish Battalion,
send hearty greetings to our com
panions already fighting under the
British Flag in our old homeland.
To them as well as to our comrades
in training in England we wish to
convey by our enlistment in the Jew
ish Battalion that thousands of young
Jews in this country are about to
join them. The definite assurance
of the British government that we
would be allowed fight in the coun
try which it has promised to aid in
returning to the Jewish people and
to bear the Jewish flag as our regi
mental colors has called forth the
unbounded enthusiasm of the con
scious Jewry of America,
It is another just and wise step
taken by the British government look
ing towards the return of Jewry to
Judea, a step which has electrified the
Jewish youth of America. Unfor
tunately the political situation of the
United States renders it impossible for
tens of thousands already in the
camps and others about to be called
upon to serve this country from
joining us. But to those who are
available for this service we appeal
to give themselves to the ideal of
fighting both for the liberation of the
world and of their people.
We who are already enlisted feel
that we have been granted a unique
privilege. The passionate hope, nur
tured through the centuries, the hope
of engaging in the war of liberation
of Judea, has been fulfilled, and we
pray that we shall not be found
wanting in the hour of trial. W
trust that of us, too, it may be said,
as was said by Col. Patterson of the
Zionist Camel Corps, also a wholly
Jewish unit, that "the Zionists show
ed themselves fearless to a degree
when under heavy fire."
The Jews of England have already
taken up the shield of David as their
banner. The call has now come to
the un-draftable Jews of this coun
try. This is no hour for half-hearted
hesitation. National loyalty is the
battle-cry of the world, and of the
Jews. Since the beginning of the
war the Jews have unstintingly giv
en their lives for all lands. Now
they have the historic opportunity of
fighting for Judea. We cannot af
ford to let England's offer be turned
into a mockery because of a lack of
response. The Jews of this country
now have the opportunity of effacing
the slur of indifference that has rest
ed on them. Through the far-seeing
generosity of the British government,
Palestine has become a tangible pros
pect. The old charges of Utopian
ism that have been proffered against
the Zionist aim have been destroyed.
Judea lies waiting for the glad foot
fall of her returning sons. We call
on our brothers- to battle "for our
People and for the Land of our Fath
ers." Colonel Theodore Roosevelt will
leave Roosevelt Hospital the first of
