Central Ohio's Only Jewish Nezvspaper Reaching Eirery Home A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR THE JEWISH HOME VOL. XV—No. 73 COLUMBUS. OHIO, MAY 20, 1932 Per Year $3.00; Per Copy loc By the Way By David Schwartz Lippman Boom Grows Recently this column suggested Walter Lippman as a desirable candidate for the presidency. Wc now have additional support for our nominee. ITeywood Broun in his column hag espoused the cause of Lipp¬ man for the presidency, and Gertrude Atherton, the famed novelist, in an ar¬ ticle now lying before me, also urges the merits of Lippman. Mrs. Atherton says of Lippman, that "he has the most lucid, statcsmanhke and comprehensive mind in the United States." No one she adds "can approach him in 'grasp' and his intellect is ot the very . highest order." Alice in Blunderland You've heard the story of the little Jewish boy promcnadit^ with his father on Christmas eve, who, seeing the lights from the homes of a section of the city largely peopled by non-Jews .questioned' his father, "Daddy, do Christians keep Christmas too?*' Weil, I've always thought that a mere story, but I came upon an experience, whose absolute veracity I can vouch for, and which duplicates this story, I'll even tell you" the little girl's name,— Alice. And she is, well, be- , tween five and six. It was the week of Passover, . "Auntie," she asked, "can we eat ice cream oii Passover?" "Have you ever seen any Jewish chiklren eat ice cream on Passover?" re¬ plied the aunt by way of stalling her off, for I do not believe the particular auntie was quite sure about the matter herself. "Yes," replied- Alice, "I saw the little girl across the street eating ice cream." "But do you know that she is Jewish?" i-'eplie<I auntie. "Yes," said Alice. "I know she is Jewish, for she speaks English." Since most of the people about her she knew were Jewish and they all spoke English, Alice came to the .conclusion that only Jews speak English. Bernstein and Zog Not every man can make a king buy a frigidaire. But that I am told, is one : of the achievements of Herman Bern¬ stein, U. S. minister to Albania, who is now on a visit to his homeland. Mr. Bernstein, it seems, was the'first man in Albania to have a frigidaire. Some time ago . King Zog visited Mr. Bernstein's home and observed all the . accoutrements. He was delighted with the frigidaire,. in particular—and ordered one like Mr. B'ernstcin's for himself. They talk of a president's kitchen cab¬ inet. King Zog shoijld be able to start one, too. LiBtening to the Ctumes Speaking of one thing or another, Eddie Cantor tells the one about the two men listening on the outside' of a religious edifice to the musical chimes issuing from within or atop. "Aren't those chimes beautiful?" asked No; 1 of No. 2. "What you say?" asked No. 2, as he cupped his ear. "I said, aren't those bells, beautiful?" spoke vip more loudly No. 1 again. "What did you say?" shouted No. 2. "Oh, darn it," shouted No. 1 yet again, and as loudly as he could, "I said, aren't those bells beautiful?" "Excuse me," shouted back No. 2, "but - I can't hear you on account of those terrible bells." Russell and Watson '-* It was Bertrand Russell who once made this comparison of the difference between the old philosophy, of the type ¦ represented. say by Descartes, and the modern school of behaviorism. Descartes, explained Russell, said, "I think, therefore, I aiii." Watson says: "There are white rats, therefore I do not think." Watson, in other words, has gone to ' objective life—to discover his phycliol- ogical principles. And all I've got to say is, whether behaviorism is true or not, there is an awful lot of psychology to be found in. objective life among plain common folks. A 'great deal that never gets between book covers. The Story of It This thought came to me after listening the other day to the story of Mrs. Cohen. Mrs. Cohen had never taken any courses in psychology, but she was a great help to Mr. Cohen. , You will be suri)rised to learn that Mra. Cohen was such a help to Mr. Cohen, when I tell you that Mrs. Cohen did very little, of the housework and spent most of her time playing bridge. Yet she was a great help to Mr. Cohen, for she was full of phychological in¬ sight and so ministered to his mind in many directions and very successfully. Now the other day, so the story that [ heard goes, Mr. Cohen was laying about tossing in hed. He had counted 10,000 ' sheep; ha had recited 'Shma Yisroel, the Jewish night prayer, two and a half times; he had tried Judaism and Chris¬ tian Science on himself, yet slumber would not come to his eyelids nor repose to his weary soul. "Why dost thou toss so much, and why is thy son! so disturbed?" asked his wife. "Ah," said Mr, Cohen at this, and turned over again and yet again. At this Mrs. Cohen grew very irate. "What have you got—the heebie-jeebies? Fray tell me, tell me what is on your mind?" And her husband, who was a plain blunt man, responded simply: "All right, if you want to know, Lena, I can't sleep, because I've got to pay Mr. Jacob's!' $3,000 tomorrow and I can't pay it." "Ho, hum" said his wife. An idea CContinued on page 2) RABBI LEE J. LEVINGER AN¬ NOUNCES TWO SERMONS The foUowing two sermons have been announced by Rabbi Lee J. Levinger, who is occupying the pulpit of Temple Israel until a successor to Rabbi Tar¬ shish has been selected by the board of Trustees: (1) "The Ubiquitous Jew in History," which will he delivered Fri¬ day eyening, May 27tli, and (2) "The Ubiquitous jew in the Present Scene,", which will be delivered Friday evening, June 3rd.

Wise Ad¬ dresses Local Jewish 'Leaders Representative Group Promises Co¬ operation to National Chairman of the 1932 Fund of The J. D. C. In every respect the meeting calletl to¬ gether by Messrs; 'Simon Lazarus and Edwin J, Schanfarber in honor of Rabbi Jonah B. Wise of New York City, Na-r tional Chairman of the 1032 Fund of the American Joint Distribution, Committee, was a success. The representative Jews who turned out for this luncheon meet¬ ing held in the Lazarus Tea Room, Monday afternoon, May Ifith, listened with rapt attention to the report made by Dr. Wise on the past and future problems of the J. D, C. In part the rabbi spoke as follows: "American Jewry will be asked to contribute $2,500,000 to the .American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, the world's largest Jewish welfare" organi¬ zation engaged in overseas work, to per¬ mit it to carry on a program, of mini¬ mum relief and social reconstruction among suffering Jews in Eastern and Central Europe. "This quota was adopted at a meeting of the Executive Conimittee and was based on facts and figures submitted by Dr. Bernard Kahn, European director of the Committee, who recently described conditions among Jews abroad as 'bor¬ dering on panic' This sum will enable the Committee to provide at least on a minimum scale, immediate relief to the starving and distressed in Poland, Lithuania, Sub-Carpathia, Roumania and other nearby sections, as well as to con¬ tinue its medical, cultural, and rehabili¬ tative activities which are helpinghun- dreds of thousands of Jewish families to become self-dependent." . At the conclusion of Rabbi Wise's ad¬ dress, Edwin J. Schanfarber. thanked the speaker for his valiant efforts and ex¬ pressed on behalf of the Jews assembled the Columbus comnmnity's readiness to do its share towards raising the national quota. Another meeting on behalf of the J. D, C. will be held on Tuesday, June 7th, announced Mr. Schanfarber. More de¬ tails regarding this meeting will be printed in the Chronicle for May 27th. H. U. C.

Tlie play i's a brilliant satire oil a breach of promise case in a court of justice, and the parts of the judge, at¬ torney, plaintiff aiid defendant, promise great humor and the usual beauty of melody.

Kaplan and Maurice Rosenthal, heroes of the three previous Gilbert and Sullivan pro¬ ductions, both of whom graduate this spring. .

A LETTER FROM A CANDI¬ DATE FOR OUTER GUARD The following letter from Louis A. Gertner speaks for itself: Columbus, Ohio, May IG, 1933. Editor, Ohio Jewish Chronicle, City. Dear Sin- In answer to my many friends who, after reading the last issue of the Chron¬ icle, have been wondering whether or not I am a candidate for the post of Outer Guard of Zion Lodge No. C2, B'nai B'rith, will you please quote me as say¬ ing that I am still in the race, very much so indeed, and with the help of my many friends and well wishers, hope and ex¬ pect to be the victor. Respectfully, (Signed) Louis A. Gertner, Thursday evening, June 2nd, at 7:30 P. M. at the annual meeting of the Jew¬ ish Welfare Federation at Hermine Schonthal Center, for the first time in the history of the Jewish Welfare Fede¬ ration, representatives will be elected to the Board of Directors from the follow¬ ing philanthropic organizations: The Co¬ lumbtts Section of the National Council of Jewish Women, the Columbus Chap¬ ter of, Hadassah, B'nai B'rith, Ezras Noshim, and the Jewish Shelter House. All Columbus Jewry owes it to its com¬ munity to piirticipate, in the election of the officers and Board of Directors of the organizations which are strengthening and moulding the lives of countless in¬ dividuals in our community. Spend, one evening in thought and contemplation while reviewing the activities of the Jew¬ ish Welfare Federation and the Hermine Schonthal Center. Give your attention to the fact that every dollar of the money j*ou contributed to the. Community Fund was so expended as to give back its full value in the terms of suffering relieved, of hungry hearts and minds made glad, and of brother Jews saved to self-re¬ spect and social usefulness. You have contributed through the Jew¬ ish Welfare Federation not only to.local ' needs of relief, social service, recreation and education and vocation, but also to national institutions including Belfaire. Jewisli Orphan Home of Cleveland, Jew¬ ish National Hospital for Consumptives, Jewish Consumptive Relief Society, Leo N, Levi Memorial Hospital, National Farm Scbool, Montefiore Home for Aged, Denver Sheltering Home for Jewish Children, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society. National Desertion Bureau, Jew¬ ish Training School for Jewish Social Work. The Jevvish Infants' Home of Ohio and the Jewish Shelter House of Hachnosis Orchim are also recipients of your bounty. Faithfully and conscien¬ tiously have the following ofBcers served yon during the past two years in the following capacities: President of Jew¬ ish Welfare Federation, J. W. Stehi- hauser; vice president; secretary. Miss Rose Sugarman; treasurer, Joseph Basch; president of Hermine Schonthal Center, Dr. E. J. Goi-don; Dr. A. M. Steinfeld, vice president. The secretary and treasurer served both organizations. Let your attendance at this meeting mark your cooperation in welding closer together the various groups in our com¬ munity who are working for a commnn causes—a united Jewry—striving to give to each and every member of our Jewish community the opportunity for .his de¬ velopment on the highest possible plane. Fritz Lichtenberg, widely known for his communal service to the entire Co¬ lumbus conimunity, will be the main speaker of the evening. J. W. Stein¬ hauser will summarise the work of the Jewish Welfare Federation. Dr, E. J. Gordon will recount the activities of Her¬ mine Schonthal Center.

MEETING A regular meeting of Aleph Zadik Aleph of the B'nai B'rith will he held Sunday afternoon, May 22nd, at 2:30 p. in. AH members are urged to attend and hear of the new sttmmer schedule which will be followed through the sum¬ mer. Last Wednesday I was surprised by a Christian friend's remark that he had just learned of the Jewish ancestry of Gilbert Bettman, Ohio's Attorney Gen¬ eral and Republican. Candidate tor the United States Senate. Iu Cincinnati, where Mr. Bettman was born and reared, he is known among all classes as a .faithful "son of Israel," one who takes an active interest in many philanthropic and religious activities. He has served this state faithfully and well and deserves the respect and support of all loyal citizens, regardless of race, color or creed. The most brilliant Yiddish story teller in Ohio is iibne other than the spiritual leader of the Euch'd Avenue Temple, Cleveland, Rabbi Barnett R. Brickner. Ask Dr. Levinger, Dr. B. W. Abramson or Mr. Joseph Solove; they will be glad' to testify to the accuracy of this, state¬ ment, for they heard liim tell scores of inimitable ''masses" at the Neil House, between 10:30 and 2 A. M. on the eve¬ ning of May Uth, following the big Zionist mass ineeting. The eloquent Ralihi proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that a Yiddishist can still be a successful pulpiteer in a Reform Con¬ gregation. It seems as if Dr. Louis I. Newman of New York and Dr. Louis Wolsey of Philadelphia, may yet have a fistic en¬ counter, judging from the strained re¬ lations that exist between them, at this time. Through a number of Anglo-Jew¬ ish weeklies they have been exchanging very uncomplimentary remarks during the past six weeks. I am wondering whether .such conduct is becoming two well-known rabbis occupyinpf important posts in large Jewish centers. A little more humility and rcstrahlt on the part of both these men is in order. As a layman I am shocked by such wrangling between gentlemen of the cloth. It is altogether luidignificd, to say the least. The annual convention of District No. 2. B'nai B'rith, takes place this year in Dayton on the 2eth, 2Mi and SOth of Jlay. From present indications Colum¬ bus will he well represented at this con¬ clave. Sidney G. Kusworm of Daxton, who is chairman of the arrangements committee, guarantees a good time to all the delegates, thejr wives, and lady friend.s. + * 4 * * * On Monday afternoon in the Lazarus Tea Room, Sinion Lazarus and Edwin J. Schanfarber were hosts to a repre¬ sentative group of Colnmbus Jews called together in honor of Rahbi Jonah B. Wise of New York, national director of the fund-raising campaign ^ of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Comniittee. _ . At this luncheon-meeting, presided ovcr by Mr. Lazarus, Rabhi Wise pre¬ sented a report on conditions abroad as they affect our co-religionists, and urged Columhus Jewry to do its part in Ihe same spirit that it has done it in the past. The Jews assemlile<l listened to Dr. Wise's address with rapt attention. "American Jewry as a whole will be asked to contribute $2,500,000 to the Joint Distribution Committee, the world's largest Jewish welfare organization en¬ gaged in overseas work," declared Dr. Wise. "This must be done in order to enable the committee to carry on a pro¬ gram of minimum relief and social re¬ construction among suffering Jews in eastern and central Europe.''

Lippman Boom Grows
Recently this column suggested Walter Lippman as a desirable candidate for the presidency.
Wc now have additional support for our nominee. ITeywood Broun in his column hag espoused the cause of Lipp¬ man for the presidency, and Gertrude Atherton, the famed novelist, in an ar¬ ticle now lying before me, also urges the merits of Lippman.
Mrs. Atherton says of Lippman, that "he has the most lucid, statcsmanhke and comprehensive mind in the United States."
No one she adds "can approach him in 'grasp' and his intellect is ot the very . highest order."
Alice in Blunderland You've heard the story of the little Jewish boy promcnadit^ with his father on Christmas eve, who, seeing the lights from the homes of a section of the city largely peopled by non-Jews .questioned' his father, "Daddy, do Christians keep Christmas too?*'
Weil, I've always thought that a mere story, but I came upon an experience, whose absolute veracity I can vouch for, and which duplicates this story,
I'll even tell you" the little girl's name,— Alice. And she is, well, be- , tween five and six.
It was the week of Passover, . "Auntie," she asked, "can we eat ice cream oii Passover?"
"Have you ever seen any Jewish chiklren eat ice cream on Passover?" re¬ plied the aunt by way of stalling her off, for I do not believe the particular auntie was quite sure about the matter herself.
"Yes," replied- Alice, "I saw the little girl across the street eating ice cream." "But do you know that she is Jewish?" i-'epliei> * ¦«( * •)¦ |
