A. emblem, a gold shield of David with the Y. M. H. A. monogram in- scribed. This emblem is presented only for meritorious service and the above members earned them. They have set a pace-for-the rest of the members to follow. ACTIVITIES FOR 1926 At the last meeting of the Board of Directors, a tentative schedule of activities for the coming year was out- lined. A library and reading room is being furnished and members are urged to come and bring their friends. A large supply of current magazines, both fiction and technical, will be on hand. worth-while books, such as a complete set of the Jewish Encyclo- pedia, and others have been obtained. The games room .has always been going full blast The pool table and cues has been overhauled and are in good shape If you enjoy checkers, chess, rummy, or poker, you will find them in the game room. If you enjoy a good game of hand- ball, you will be able to indulge for a handball court is now being con- structed in the gym. How does a handball tournament sound to you? Let's have your names. In the future, one meeting in the month will be educational and well known public speakers on current topics will be obtained. The other meeting will be entertainment on the order of dancing, smokers, feeds, tournaments, etc. JUDGE SAMUEL R. STERN TO SPEAK JANUARY 13TH We have been extremely fortunate in obtaining Judge Samuel R. Stern to speak at the next meeting. Judge Stern, who was reeently appointed to the bench, is well known to all and his address will be one that you can't afford to miss. Let's have a real turn-out. Brother Tworoger also promises another interesting number HOUSE COMMITTEE Brother Max Friedman, who was appointed chairman of the House Committee at the last Board meeting, promises to surprise the members with the improvements and house activities. He promises that the handball court will be an A-I affair and that the game rooms will be com- plete and up to date in every respect. As for the reading room, it will be complete. If you like a certain magazine let us know and it will be there. Let Max have :our sugges- tions for it is your affair. Y. M. H. A. ORCHESTRA Brother Sam Harnish, chairman of the Y. M. H. A. Orchestra advises that he has been successful in obtain- ing Professor Friedland to act as Director. The first meeting of the Orchestra will be held Monday evening, January llth, at 8:30. If you have any kind of instrument be there, if you know just a little about music, be there. Professor Friedland will give instructions to any candi- dates for the orchestra. SEMI-MONTHLY DANCES The Y has scheduled for the ac- tivities of 1926 a series of semi-month: ly dances. These dances will be in charge of various members, each com- mittee serving for a term of three months each. Novelty numbers will be worked out for each dance and the music will be the best obtainable. The dance floor is now being scraped and polished and will be in the best of shape. The first dance for the vear will be held Sunday evening, January 17th at 8:3; P. M. Brother Louis Casserd in charge, will make this a real number Lo attend. Everybody be there. Admission is only 50c the couple. Ladies admitted free. WHERE ARE YOUNG MEN OF SEATTLE? Can they be found only in the cabarets, dance halls, movies and hotel lobbies? Upon their should- ers should rest some of the re- sponsibilities of "carrying on." The Seattle Y. M. H. A. offers any young man a rich opportunity of putting his shoulders to a worth- while task. The years from eight- een to thirty is the ideal period for such work. Then it is that one's time is his own, and until he marries the young man is free to pursue his fancies. No one should consider the time and energy spent in organization work as a sacrifice or a contribu- tion to a cause. The ad(antages accruing to the worker himself more than repays him for his ef- forts. The satisfaction in helping Educational Center HEALTH CLUB RE-ORGANIZED Under the direction of Miss Mc- Bee, its new watcher, the Health Club was entirely reorganized last week in anticipation of a bigger, better, more successful year for 1926. The club is one of the niost im- portant activities at the Center, carried on expressively for health's sake. It is made up of four health groups, arranged according to the ages and percentage of under- weight, of the members. A kinder- garten, run in conjunction with the aforementioned groups, accommo- dates children between the ages of four to seven. To bring underweight children to weight, to teach health habits, and the use of proper foods--that and more, too, is the aim of the organ- ization. And, as for accomplishments, the club's record speaks for that. Last summer the best record for weight gaining in the tubercular camp was made by a member of the club, and just as remarkable results, in comparison, are being obtained at the present time. Miss McBee, a University of Washington graduate, is very en- thusiastic about the future of the club and her connections with it. Moving Picture Show Today "Little Old New York," featur- ing Marion Davies, will be the next moving picture show given at the Educational Center. A popular comedy will also be shown. Local Club Beaten The Y. M. A. C took the short end of a 2740 score at the Temple last Sunday, when they clashed with the Fifteenth Avenue boys. For particulars of game, see news section. Health Club and Sewing Classes Given Two parties, one for an enthusi- astic group known as the Health Club, on Saturday, January 2, and another for as just as enthusiastic a bunch, the sewing classes, on Tuesday, January 5, were given as a reward for loyal endeavor in their respective fields of activity. Motion Picture Show for Senior Boys and Girls Planned Arrangements are being made to put on a moving picture show for the senior boys and girls of the Center Although a definite date has not been decided upon, it is believed that the show will be given some time at the end of this month, Sun- day, January 31, possibly, at 5:30 p. m. "Feet of Clay," the picture that was such a hit here some time ago it is believed will be available on the date mentioned. --Rose C. Alexander. Subscribe to The Jewish Transcript --do it today. Lun unto nu m | m uu un |munnil WEEKLY BRAINSTORMS By Philip Tworoger "Abie's Irish Rose" for a few days at least, will take a subordi- nate place to "Irving's Scotch Thistle," as a result of the mar- riage of Irving Berlin to Ellin Mac- kay. I do not know the effect on our readers, but the writer believes that every Jew in the United States must have felt the insult of the article contained in Tues- day's P.-I. under a New York head- i line by Edward J. Doherty. The 'following was particularly insult- ing: "A Catholic girl, finely rear- ed, splendidly educated, a girl who had only to wish for a thing to obtain it, gave herself to a Jew who came out of poverty and hard- ships into the stars." Not know- ing Mr. Doherty, but judging from the name simply, the chances are i that he is either the son or grand- I son of a laborer who came over from the "Auld sod" in steerage. His opinion evidently is that there was a great "misalliance" on the part of Miss Mackay to marry into the Berlin family. Were the writer inclined to use slang, he would say: "Where do you get that stuff?" Miss Mackay's grandfather came from the Highlands of Scotland, a common laborer, who simply hap- pened to strike luck in the Cali- fornia and Nevada gold mines. Her grandmother was in those days designated as a "wash woman," and at the present time would be described as a "laundress" or the "lady who does the washing." Both of her ancestors would pr(bably have had some difficulty in being able to read Mr. Doherty's article. Irving Berlin's immediate pro- genitors and those for several gen- erations past, were probably poor. They, however, had a standing among their own people and were able to do what Mrs. Berlin's an- cestors were not, "read their pray- ers in their own language," and knew who their ancestors were for several generations back. We presume had Mrs. Berlin married some impecunious foreign nobleman, who would have been unable to provide one meal a month for her, unless paid for by "Papa" Mackay, and who had been divorced by one or more of his former wives, it would have been regarded as a very proper and ap- propriate union, but marrying a man who is mentally alert, morally clean, able to make his own way in the world and who can look "Papa" Mackay in the face and tell him to go to--, is a misalliance for which the family will probably dis- own her. An article like that with the rather unfriendly publicity given to the Wise episode, ought to con- vince out" co-religionists t h a t Hearst's pro-Sem,tism is not based  upon any real friendship to our people, but merely a regard for the cash register. It felt like old times to see in Monday's paper that Arthur Freed, now of Los Angeles, arrived in Se- attle Sunday in order to supervise the production of "A Pair O' Fools" for this meeting.

Residence, WEst 1 109 SEA'I"TLE Appeal to accept Dr. WisH's resig- nation as chairman, is a wise move which will receive the approval of every right-thinking Jew through- out the United States. It would be too much to hope that those now living will see the day when there will be no more fanaticism, but fortunately, it has very little, and should have no place among Jews. Almost invar- iably the victims of bigotry have left: behind a reputation which has survived long after those respon- sible for their persecution have been forgotten. Probably the most prominent example of it among our own people is the case of Baruch Spinoza. The vote, fifty-nine to nine against acceptance of his resigna- tion should be a warning to those attempting hereafter to muzzle anybody, either through the Jew- ish press or the pulpit. The death of Queen Dowager Margherita, mother of King Victor Emanuel, which occurred last Mon- day, brings to mind how "uneasy lies the head that wears a crown." She was the wife of the late King Hasimbret, who was King of Italy from 1878 to 1900, and who was assassinated by an anarchist nam- ed Bresci. Until the advent of Mussolini the Italian Government was like that of Great Britain; "the King reigned, but did not rule," the executive power being vested in a cabinet which was al- ways representative of the Parlia- mentary majority. Mussolini has changed all this by depriving Par- liament of practically all of its power to initiate legislation, limit- ing it to merely registering royal decrees, which, of course, means the decrees drawn up by Mussolini and merely signed by the King. He also deprived the Italian Munici- palities of their local self-govern- ment, substituting for them megis- trates appointed by the King. Mus- solini's idea seems to 'be to make the Italian Government a duplicate of that of ancient Rome under the Caesars with t:he power vested in a Dictator. The King merely a figurehead. After a trial which lasted more than nine weeks Stanislaw Steiger, a Jewish student, who was tried l at Lemberg for attempting to as- i sassinate President Wojcizchowski i of Poland, was acquitted by a jury. The Steiger trial, in most of its features, resembled the trial of Mendel Bieliss, which was held at Kief in 1912. While the charge, or indictment, in each case was regular on its face, and the trial was conducted wit:h all due regard for legal forms. the motive behind the persecution was not a desire to vindicate the law and punish the guilty, but was anti-Semitism, pure and simple. The Prosecutor in the Steiger case, just as the Prosecutor in the Bielis case, with very little investi- gation, could have discovered that there was not sufficient evidence to justify a prosecution. In both cases, "however, there was no de- sire to furt:her justice, but to satisfy racial hatred. Fortunately, even in darkest Rus- sia and anti-Semitic Poland, there s enough public sentiment to pre- vent murder from being committed through instrumentalities of the law. Tuesday, December 29, 1925, will always be a Red-Letter Day in the history of Seattle Jewry, particu- larly for those of our co-religionists who came here from Spokane. It was on that' day that Judge Samuel R. Stern was appointed one of the Judges of the Superior Court of King County. United States District Attorney Thomas p. Rev- elle appointed Arthur E. Simon, a former resident: of Spokane, and for five years a practicing attorney in Seattle, as assistant U. S. At- torney. Mayflower "'Just Honest Milk" Demand it of your grocer or phone Mayflower Dairy gLliott 6210 1932 Ninth Ave. Seattle Mr. Simon has not been actively affiliated with our people, but his failure to become acquainted is due, not to any desire to avoid us, but rather to his natural diffidence. He is a scholarly gentleman, whom it is hard to separate from his law books and classic literature. Mr. Simon is a Harvard graduate and a former service man. His family are old residents of Spokane. He came to Seattle after his discharge from the service, first being con- nected with the office of Charles H. Winders, local attorney for the Northern Pacific Railway, aDd for the last three years in the office of Bausman & Oldham. Mr. Revelle informed the writer that it was only after continuous efforts last- ing two years that he has induced Mr. Simon to become a member of his staff. Mr. Simon, while not well known to the public, has the respect and regard of all the Judges before whom he has had occasion to try any cases and his associates at the Bar. Seattle Progressive Fraternity To Hold Installation of Officers Tim Seattle Progrcssive[Fratelnity will install the officers of the Fratern- ity together with their Auxiliary for the ensuing year of 1926 on Jan. 10.
