To the Editor, The Jewish Transcript, Seattle, Washington. Dear Sir: I would very much ap- preciate it, if yOu would be so kind as to print my small letter, in the defense of Jewish Nationalism. I have seen Jewish Nationalism attacked so much lately, that I could not resist the temptation to write to you, as I was sure that as a Jewish newspaper, you would publish the article. Who knows, but it may do some good? Yours sincerely, (Signed) GEORGE PROTTAS.

This NATION should be Hot stuff. There are many so-called Jews, who, unfortunately, claim to be HOLD YOUR BREATH great authorities on Jewish topics of all sorts. I say unfortunately While the paper is being read, will because these people have no right cot the brethren refrain from both to express an opinion on Jewish smoking and whispering to their subjects because of their gross ig- neighbors on the right? norance of Jewish history, both Biblical, and otherwise. They are Stanley Blumenthal, Warden, Leslie Stusser, Guardian; Irving Lewis, Secretary, Maurice Gerber, Treasurer, David Lipman, Leopold Stern and Herbert Schoenfeld, trustees. When inducted into his new station, Brother Shemanski addressed the brethren concerning his plans for the] ensuing term. The new president: pledged himself to a program of in- tensified activities, with the coming Grand Lodge Convention as the climax. Brother Shemanski then intro- duced the speaker of the evening, Brother Swett, who spoke on the in- fluence of the B'nai B'rith Order, citing instances which indicated the recognized strength and power of the fraternity. Following Mr. Swett's address, Miss Leonora Friedland rendered several vocal selections. All of her numbers were very well received by the audience. Mr. Gerald Prince then rendered several violin numbers in truly artistic style. The applause of all present indicated the apprecia- tion of the audience. At this point the president called Brother P. Allen Rickles, the retiring president, to the front, where he was presented with a beautiful watch as a token of appreciation for meritorious services rendered by him as executive of the Lodge during the year 1925. Brother Herbert Schoenfeld made the presentation address in his usual im- pressive manner. Now that we are starting on a new year, let us strive to make the year 1926 one long to be remembered in Seattle Lodge. It will be the first oportunity for the members to witness a Grand Lodge session. We have a year of great activity ahead of us. Don't forget the lodge has an office, established for the convenience of the members. When you are down- town, stop in at 503 Pacific Block right over Lipman and Esfeld s In- surance office.

Brother Sherman rendered several operatic numbers with exceptional ability. The beauty and strength of his voice, as well as the polish and ease of his style, greatly impressed all present and Brother Sherman's performance pro- voked an outburst of applause and he was compelled and obliged to render encore after encore before the mem- bership was finally satisfied. Upon the conclusion of the pro- gram, refreshments were served in the banquet room. Brother Becker- man had charge of this feature and as usual pleased the members in every way. The refreshments concluded an evening of immense pleasure and en- joyment to the five hundred brethren who attended the meeting and will long be remembered as one of the l most notable installations ever held I by Seattle Lodge. During the business part of the meeting, which preceded the instal- lation, the resignation of Herman Shapiro as vice-president was read bonds- and upon motion accepted.

Abraham was the first Zionist, and therefore, Zionism and Judaism are one and insepar- able. From this, it can readily be seen, that Nationalism, which real- ly is the same as Zionism, cannot be taken from Judaism, and any Judaism, in whatever form, without the hope of fully establishing Pal- estine as a Homeland for the Jews, cannot exist, and will meet its ob- vious end, failure.
