Victory of Maccabeans. . The festival of Chanuka commem orates the victory of the Macca beans over King Antiochus, the op pressor of the Jews and the pro tagonist of Syrian kultur 2,100 years ago. Chanuka this year as sumes a peculiar significance. Be ginning on Thanksgiving eve, it falls tt a time when the world is rejoic ing in the coming of peace, and It also marks the first anniversary , of the recapture of Jerusalem by General Allenby at the bead of the British armies. Consequently, this year it is an occasion for great re joicing among the Jewj in every country who have been ardent sup porters of the allied cause. , The Chanuka candles, which will be lighted in'Jewish Welfare board huts and community centers, trace their origin to a flask of sacred oil that burned for eight days, which the victorious' Maccabeans found when they re-entered the temple in Jerusalem after driving out the Syrians. A Rock Cliff Waterfall i Memorial for Omaha's ' ! Soldier Dead Proposed :; City Commissioner Towl has a novel idea for a monument to Oma ha soldiers who died in the great war.
