Luzzati Speaks homes of individuality to His People G rlN the shrewd buy- By Reuben Brainin er. The greatest Jewish statesman since Disraeli, Luigi Luzzati has given out his first interview on Jewish affairs. Luzzati is looked upon as the grand old man of Italy, and his views on things Jewish will create interest not only in America but also in Eur- ope. Reuben Brainin, dean of Hebrew writers, is now touring the various countries of Europe to investigate the status of Jew- ish culture and the condition of the Jewish people, lie is meeting with the foremost representatives of Jewry in every land, and is thus feeling the pulse of Jewish atti- tudes and anti-Jewish feelings. This interview with the foremost Jewish statesman of our time is one of the most important of the series to come.--The Editor. Italian-Jewish newspaper, wrote to Luzzati, saying that I should like to meet the Senator. That same day Luzzati's secretary got in touch with Dr. Lattos, informing him that as soon as the Senator recovered some- what, he should like to meet me. Several days later, I was cordially received by Luzzati, although he had not yet fully recovered from the severe cold he had contracted. Luzzati is just above average height, thin, bony. He has a long white Van Dyke beard. I was re- minded strongly of the late Professor Max Mandelstamm, although the features of Mandelstamm were finer, milder and more expressive. To some extent also I was reminded of the late Professor Moses Lazarus. The many wrinkles on Luzzati's face were illu- minated by an inner fire and energy that shone from his eyes, bringing out in telling, almost biographical strokes his history as a cultured, active, influential man. ' After some preliminary discussion I plunged into the heart of matters which I had especially desired to speak about. I asked his opinion of world politics as they .affeet the status of the Jew, inferring that his intimate contact with international affairs had surely forced him to form ideas as to the Jewish problem. I must admit that we discussed the matter not in the relation of inter- viewer to subject, but as two Jews interested sincerely in Jewish matters sometimes jumping fl'om one thing to another without regard to chrono- logical order. These notes must therefore be looked upon only as notes, without literary or even jour- nalistic pretentions. By way of prelude, Luzzati began: "Some time ago a Polish minister as- serted that I had been converted to Catholicism. I immediately made it known that this was a brazen lie. In the second volume of my collected writings, which are now being printed I give all my views regarding religion in general, and especially the Jewish religion. I am very explicit as to my meaning and attitude with regard to anti-Semitism, and I there what I have done during my life-time to combat anti-Semitism and the poisonous hatred which is drenching many countries." And Luzzati the Italian statesman receded to the For some time it had been my am- )ition to have the opportunity of meeting the veteran Jewish states- man who, first as Minister of Fi- nance, and then as Italy's Premier came into contact with all the prob- lems that affected the world; who had met the rulers and leaders of most European countries and parties, and who had become acquainted with the practical and theoretical aspects of every political, social, cultural, and spiritual movement that had swept over Europe during the last fifty years. When I arrived in Rome, I learned that Senator Luigi Luzzati now eighty-two years old, was ill bed. My best friend in Rome, Dr. Dante Lattos, editor of the only HIIHIHHIHHHIHIH]HH]H]IIIIH]III]]I]I]IHIH]HHI]IIH]HIIIx background as Luzzati, the fighter, revealed himself. -- He went on to tell me, citing facts For Your January Funds PUGET SOUND POWER & LIGHT COMPANY PREFERRED STOCK At the Market, $86 To Yield 7% Puget Sound Power & Light Securities Company and dates, how, in 1878, at the Peace Congress in Berlin, he had exerted himself that Clause 47 might be in- cluded in the Peace Pact. This Clause bound the Roumanian govern- ment to give the Roumanian Jews equal rights. As time went on, how- ever, he realized that unfortunately paragraph 47 was never brought into execution, for despite compromise --and agreement the Jews in that country were robbed of their per- sonal rights. Then again, some time later, Luzzati turned to the Rou- manian government, reminding it of this paragraph. In the meantime the World War broke out. In his account of the various eon- - tarts which he had made with Jewish life and the efforts which he had made -- to aid the Jews, never once did Luz- zati refer to his own activity in a personal manner. When he spoke of a compromise that had been reached 'between governments whereby the __ lJewish minority rights were pro-! tected, his own participation was l merely a reproach to the government which had robbed the Jews of their rights. In 1913 Luzzati, as he told me with certain pride, again sent a Manifesto to the Roumanian Government, re- minding it of its duty to the Jews de- cording to the pact which had been made with the various governments at the Congress. "At that time I received, in answer to my Manifesto, letters from the greatest statesmen and writers in Europe--from Balfour, from Roosevelt,, from Clemenceau, from Anatole France.

The Roumanian government immediately ceased persecuting its Jews. The rather harsh edicts immediately be- came milder. The Roumanian gov- ernment realized at last that it had to count with the public opinion of Europe and America, opinion which I brought to the surface." And the eighty-two-year-old states- man looked past me, dreaming, smiling, happy that he had done a good political deed for his own people. Luzzati went on: "Now... The world war strength- ened and spread hatred and intoler- ance toward the Jew. This is true. It would be hypocritical to deny it. This same unfortunate influence is evidenced in America and also in Italy. Until very recently there was not-the slightest sign of anti Semitism in Italy, The best evidence is that I myself am the only Jew in the world within recent times to reach the heights of the premiership of a world MRS. JACOB DOVER PASSES AWAY IN LOS ANGELES Mrs. Jacob Dover, aged 47, passed away Saturday morning, January 2, 1926, and was interred on Sunday afternoon, January 3, 1926 at the Home of Peace Cemetery. Services were held at the W. A. Brown Under- taking Parlors, Los Angeles, Rabbi Ernest Trattner officiating. Mrs. Dover was a resident on the Pacific Cotst for the past twenty-five years, fifteen of which were spent in Seattle and the last three in Los Angeles, California. The deceased is survived by her husband, Mr. Jacob Dover; two sons, Messrs. Leon and William; and three daughters Misses Olga, Isadora and Gladys; also three brothers nd five sisters residing in Montreal, Canada. fortunes. Jews must strike the first blow at world materialism. It is true that this alone won't cure the situation; nor will anti-Semitism dis- appear, for hatred toward the Jews is deeply rooted and will continue to exist among the peoples for a long time to come. "This campaign must be led not by Jews but more by their friends among the non-Jews. I myself have always been interested in combatting anti- Semitism, partly because I was in- teres.ted in Jews, but also because I was Interested in the protection of all human rights." Speaking of Zionism, the Italian- Jewish statesman said: "2-he work which is being done by Jews in Pales- tins is very useful in the propaganda against anti-Jewishness. We must. show the world and the world must see clearly and definitely that the Jew does not always strive to become .a banker; the talents of the Jew are ]ust as much suited to agriculture, and he is able to become that which he was in ancient times." Rising, with flaming eyes and a prophetic gesture the old sage con- tinued: The Jew must show the world that he is always guided by truth and justice. I am interested in everything that relates to Zionism and have been following the move- ment quite closely, and every time ll that I hear of a new Jewish colony ll which has converted waste land into ll fruitful valleys I am glad, not merely I as one who was born a Jew, but also ll as a citizen of the world and as an Italian. Each new achievement of the Jews in Palestine proves to the world that the word Jew is no1 a synonym for money. Zionism shows the Jew at his highest." Luzzati told me that Roosevelt had once visited him on his European power, and eight times to occupy the tour and that they had discussed the position of minister in the various Jewish problem in the various lands. cabinets. In no other country of the lRoosevelt boasted that in the time world would this have been possible, I that he was President of the United as is proved by the fact that it hap- I States, he had a Jew, Oscar Straus, in pened nowhere else. But today anti- ]his Cabinet.

There are only a newform of anti-Semitism is arising, four countries where the Jews are It evidences itself most thoroughly in the movement to restrict the number of Jewish students in the Universities and other higher in- stitutes of learning. This movement is firmly founded in Austria, Hungary and Roumania, and is not particularly the result of economic fear of Jewish supremacy. It is directed more against the survival of the Jewish spirit." As Luzzati discussed the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe and the spread of this evil among the intelli- gent classes, I asked him what remedy he thought possible or advisable. His answer was: "The only possible manner of weakening and finally an- nihilating ant-Semitism, which of course is a long process, is this: Jews in all lands must cease to strive after money and cease accumulating vast dealt with justly: Italy, France, America, Great Britain; and these countries only profit from their at- titude. The Jews in these lands have always shown themselves loyal citi- zens. They have always contributed largely to the enrichment and pro- gress of their respective countries. For hours the Italian Disraeli con- fided to me his intense Jewish feelings and his views on the various aspects of Jewish life. There was nothing startlingly new in what he said; but the fact that he said these things con- vinced me that Lugi Luzzati has never abandoned the interests of our pe.ople, and that we have in him a wise, courageous, friend, a spiritual leader--a man who is looked upon as i the pillar of Brotherhood and Hu- manity in Europe.--(Copyrighted by Seven Arts Feature Syndicate, 1926).

Council Calendar Available Earlier New York City.--The calendar of holidays, issued by the Na- tional Council of Jewish Women, will be made available earlier than in pat years, according to a decision reached by this organization's Committee on Education, of which Mrs. J. Victor Greenbaum of Cincinnati, is chaiman. We have decided to arrange our plans so that the holyday calendar will render the most evective service possible. We are taking into account the fact that schedule and program committees of universities, colleges and schools meet early in the year. The value of our appeal for eo-opera- tion in ensuring the students observ- ance of the Jewish holydays and in eliminating all conflicts in examina- tion dates and speeial programs, is i often lost because the eommittees of edueational institutions do not have the list of holydays at their disposal at an early period in the year. We are also sending our calendar to the State Superintendents of Educa- tion, State Examining Boards, etc. It was further announced that the usual holyday calendar will also be issued by the Couneils Committee on Religion, of which Mrs. Edwin Zug- smith of Pittsburgh is chairman. The purpose of this second ealendar is to encourage families to make proper provision for the observance of the holydays, and so strengthen the devotion of youth to Judaism. All our efforts to provide safeguards for Judaism and to educate public institutions to respect our holydays will be of no avail if our young men and women are reared in homes that never recognize the sacred days of the Jewish year. We have a work of education and training to perform among our own people as well as among those who are not of our faith, on the question of our holydays. The calendar of the Committee on Religion will also be distributed in institutions and hospitals. The dis- tribution of the ealendar of the Com- mittee on Education will be made under the direction of Mrs. A. S. Kohler of Savannah, chairman of the sub-committee on Calendar. The chairmen of local committees on Edu- cation and Religion will aid the National chairman in the work of distribution.
