No. 47 SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, JANUARY 25, 1929 $2.00 PER YEAR SEATTLE TOO, HAS JEWESS ACTIVE IN PUPPETEER WORK "AMERICAN HEBREW" PUB- LISHES ARTICLE ON MARI- ONETTES BY "PERHAPS ONLY JEWESS IN THE FIELD" In a recent issue of "Tile American Hebrew," New York Magazine, an article is published, entitled "Little Wooden People," by Mrs. llelen Ha(man Joseph, subheading it with the words: "Marionettes as a Quaint Corner of Art, and Something About One of the Most Ardent American Puppeteers Who is Perhaps the Only Jewess in the Field." The article is very interesting. Mrs. Joseph is surely an exl)ert in the work. She has done much research work, having written a book about the history and art of the Marionettes, which is widely read by all students. However, Seattle too has a Jewish woman who has found the art of the puppeteers, fascinating and engros- sing,--Mrs. John R. Holmes. She has read Mrs. Joseph's book and has profited by her experience and the reformation contained therein. Mrs. Holmes. as Mrs. Joseph, became in- terested in Marionette drama quite by accident. Mrs. Holmes interested in the work of a scholarship fund of the Educational Center of the Council of Jewish Women, came in contact with clever and talented art students --became interested in their work and then herself entered actively in it, and now is heading .a group of art and drama students, m an ambitious project of a Children's theatre at the University of Washington. These shows are given bi-monthly, on Satur- day mornings and have been devoted to fairy dramas that through the medium of the puppet, have a tre- mendous appeal for the children. Mrs. Holmes has devoted many months of study for the sake of this art, in which she has become inter- ested. She has become expert in the making of the puppets as well as their manipulation. In the ardour for this new work she has given up most of her other activities.. The little group, The Attic Players with the Holmes Marionettes, started out as an almost entirely Jewish group. Now about half of the pup- peteers and cast are Jewish, many having had to drop out because of heavy school work and so forth. On Saturday, January 26th, the Attic Players are giving three per- formances at tbe Century Theatre, sponsored by the Ways and Means Committee, Women's Century Club for their bazaar, which they arc givinu O '  "" t help defray the cost of their new Cub House. Ihe Holmes Marmn- ettes will be seen at three shows Saturday, at 11 1 and 3:15 o'clock. They will show 'Jack and the Bean Stalk" with two other little acts. As nothing at the bazaar is to cost more than fifteen cents, this is the price of admission to the show. The Century Club is in the North Broad- way district, at 807 East Roy. Hadassah Library Fund to Defray Cost of Kitchen in Palestine FIRST AMERICAN GROUPS ARE FORMED IN SEATTLE TO PRO- VIDE LUNCHEONS FOR KIND- ERGARTEN TOTS. The proceeds of the Hadassah Li- brary are going to defray the cost of a kitchen for the first kindergarten to be established in Palestine. The members of the board of the Hadassah Library, which for the past year has not been in existence, have under- taken to form groups of young women who will donate a very small sum at socials, luncheons, literary groups, card parties or sewing groups, that will meet twice a month for the Imr - pose of maintaining this kitchen. A diffm'ent hostess in each group pro- vidcs a simple luncheon at her heine anti each member donatcs twenty-five cents. In this pfinless fashion it is hoped to raise $250 each year to supl)ly the noon mc'tl for tile little students at this kindergarten. Mrs. Meyer Lurie who was chair- man and organizer of the library board is chairman of the l(indergartcn Fund. Mrs Leslie Stusser a so hohls the oflicc she hehl with the lbr rv board, as secretary anti trcasurcr of the new organization. Mrs. Sam Stnsser is ehairman of the telephone committee and Mrs. ]Icrman Bhunen- fehl will act as historian. Five groups have already been formed with an aver tge mcn(lmrship of ten women. An effort is being made to form additional groups. There are in the city now many reading clubs, Mah Jongg and bridge clubs, as well as sewing groups t]mt meet for social purposes only and to these an appeal willbe made to join in the work of the other groups, if not by the taxation of the santo sum, than lesser or greater sums as can be agreed upon. JEWISH CENTER DEDICATED <-Pwthschild Observes00ar e.00itzvah London (J. T. A.)--The Bar Mitzvah of Edmund Roth- schild, son of Lionel de Roth- schild and Mrs. de Roth- schild, was held on Saturday at the Duke Street Synagog where the first Lord Roth- schild became Bar Mitzvah seventy-five years ago. Young Edmund, during the confirmatory ceremony, read a chapter in the weekly portion of the Bible. A ser- mon was delivered by Chief Rabbi, Dr. J. H. Hertz. The confirmation exercises were followed by a reception. The London press reported fully the ceremonies which were held in accordance with Jewish traditional custom. "The Dybbuk" Well Done by Player's Club FAMOUS DRAMA CASTS ITS SPELL OF MYSTICISM AND OLD TRADITION FOR SE- ATTLE AUDIENCES. The magic power of Ansky's beau- tiful tale in tim play, "Tim Dybt)uk" was splendidly enacted by The Play- er's Clnb last Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Century Club. A plot that deals primarily with spirit- ual conflicts needs a delicacy of hand- ling that requires the skill of the most seasoned actors. Praise is due Frank Price Giles who directed the Playm"s Club, to the young people who en- acted their roles so faithfully and skillfully and to Fred Orin Harris, whose beautiful settings helped to create the wierd spirit of mysticism The play itself has magic power. What au unusual'love tale it pea. sesses--the power of love that show itself in life, death and in the com- munication of the soul after death. The strictly Jewish spell of the play is immediately created in the first glimpse of the stage. The reverance of the study of ttm law in the old synagogue, the discussion of the words of the ral)bis of the Talmud-- all help to create the spirit of the play at once. The chanting of prayers, the purely Jewish humming of the songs, is Iberfectly done with tre- mendous effect. The scene of the beggar's dance at the wedding is a rather.powerful one, very well done by the players. In the last act the trial between the dead man and the living man presided over by Rabbi Aesrael, the Tsadik is so different from the ordinary experi- ence, from the usual thought, that it must remain in one's thoughts as something to reminisce about, to discuss and to wonder at. Mar(ha Kurus, as Lcah, was per- fectly cast, for not only is she very attractive to look at, but she also has a splendid voice and is a fine actress. The role enacted by her required a fine restraint which was in no way trespassed by her. Sophie Rosen- stein as her foster mother, was per- fect. In action and maturer and word she gave a delightful picture of a big hearted Jewish mother. John Mason its Channon, a young student, had a most difficult role, filled with the pitfalls of overacting, which except m a few minor instances, were averted. Leslie Stusser once more con- vinccd an audience of his real ability as an actor. As the Tsadik, Rabl/fe Aisracl lie presided over the wierd triM and cast. out the spMt of the Dyl/lmk with all the dignity of the character he was portraying. Arthur Wcinstcin is' it versatile player, having linen cast in three different rCcs and doing them all eg!lall,v well. The lmppy "rich man el lmmntz" wits well done by Maurice Friedman and it was a lovely thing to hear his voice raised in song, even though for but a few sylhd>les in the prayer to the deitd. The cast its a whole did splendid work. There was not it weak moment in the play. The production of "The )r " 1 )bbuk is an ambitious achieve- ment for any group of pbtyers and one that this groul) in no way failed in. It is to be hoped that the play will lie repeated, to ive many wire (lid not see it this time, an opportt"l';l[ ity to attend a I)owcrful drama, to which such justice is clone by so am- bitious a group of actors.

A.)--Municipal and private hospitals, particularly the Jewish Itospital of Warsaw, are over- crowded with victims of an influenza epidemic here. Cases have increased during the last few days. Gedalia Bublick Enthralls Seattle by His Eloquence e.00ore 00han see Join as Result of '3fis R.)isit 3fere The magnetic l)ersonality of Geda- lia Bul)lick, I)residcnt of the American Mizrachi Organization, made itself felt by a large number of Seattle people during his recent visit. His simple oratory, his fine h)gic and his rare humor made those who heard him first on Saturday night at the re- ception at the Bikur Cholum, at tended each meeting where he wm to speak that followed. Though th reception was to be a simple affair where everyone would have the op- portunity of meeting the well-known journalist and leader of Orthodox Jewry, when the room became filled with more than three hundred people present, it ceased being informal, and Mr. Bublick mounted the platform and gave an impromptu and brilliant address. On Sunday evening five hundred people attended the mass meeting at the Bikur Cholum. In the afternoon Mr. Bublick visited the Talmud Torah and praised the work that was being clone there. "I would rather see one Talmud Torah where children are being taught the Bible, than twenty beautifully decorated syna- gogues," tie said. On Monday after- noon Mr. Bul)lick spoke for the Seattle Hadassah Chapter at Tem Center and Monday evening he again before it crm;ded Over a hundred were pledged for members of the Mizrachi Association, with yearly vohmtary membershi dues of about $750,--al)out ten havin pledged $25 per year, during Mt Bublick's visit. Mr. Bublick con- siders Seattle as having a fine group of Jewish citizens. He feels that there are enough pious, earnest Jews here to develop a Jewish conscious community. His talks were mostly given to ex- plaining the results of the Mizrachi efforts in Palestine. "Bialik writes beautiful songs in Hebrew," lie said. of the ceremony of lighting the candles on Friday night. "Everyone in Pal- estine loves to sing these songs but not all of them think it important to perform this beautiful ceremony. I would ratber have the women of Palestine not learn the Hebrew sonts than not carry on the tradition of the lighting of the candles on Fri- day night." Returning to Zion Third Time. History is repeating itself," Mr. Bublick said, "for the Jews are re- turning to Zion for the third time. The first time was when they came out of Egypt. It took them three hundred years to finally conquer the land and make it a Jewish Home. When one thinks of those three hundred years then it seems stupid to bewail the sums of money as too large that we are sending now into Palestine to redeem the land and make it a Jeish Home. "The second return was after the destruction of the first temple when the Jews returned from Babylonia twenty=five hundred years ago. The identical situation is perhaps repeat- ipg itself tod:;eM, r. B/liXkreS:il, as took pla d in the Bible that only 43,000 returned. Many of the Jews in Babylonia were very comfortable, had fine homes and were highly respected and they did riot want to go. As now, those who stayed in Babylonia helped those who returned. It was the poorest class who went to Palestine at that time, different to the type that go now. They were ignorant, inter- married and almost forgot that they were Jews. Among them came one great man, the prophet Ezra. In Ezra Hasofar, according to Talmudic traditions, he was a man as great as Moses. When Ezra saw what his people were doing, he did not say, 'I will go back to Babylonia where there are Jews of my own class.' He sehochet, the rabbi and the custonls of traditiomd Judaism. "When we bring a schochet into a socialist kvutzah, we start a revolution. Soon, when the men are out on the field it woman will come and ask the scochet to kill a chicken for her. Her husband finds out and tie is furious. Next time it is not difficult and soon they forgot that Karl Marx said religion was fatal to socialism." "There are no ignorant people in Palestine," Mr. Bublick stated. "Though many of the pioneers know nothing about their religion or anything else, they know thel'r Karl Marx. Others who are neither so- cialists or religious are nationalists with a fervent admiration of the Hebrew language, its literature and art. I wonder if there was anyone that was ignorant in Palestine. It got so that I really hoped to find someone. I found a teamster to take me in his buggy and I thought, here now is an ignorant man at last. The teamster spoke to his horse,--in Hebrew--and even the horse under- stood. There was one ignorant soul there and it wasn't the teamster or the horse(" Such is Palestine. "But it can not be a Jewish land without Jewish religion." Gedalia Bublick Makes Meaning of Mizrachi Clear in His Interview ONLY RETURN OF ORTHODOX JUDAISM CAN STOP DECAD- ENCE OF FAITH. Many puzzling details as regard to the meaning of the aims and beliefs of the Mizrachi Organization of Am- erica were cleared np during an inter- view with Gedalia Bublick, its presi- dent, who last week was a visitor in Seattle. Mr. Bublick has been a ournalist of note for many years, aving been the editor (if the Jewish Gedalia Bublick Daily News of New York for a quarter of a century, lie is also the author remained in Palestine.

MORE THAN THREE HUNDRED WO- MEN ATTEND. One (if the best attended meetings of the Seattle Chapter IIadassah took place on Monday afternoon, January 21st, at Teniple Center. An unex- pected feature of the meeting was the presence of Gedalia But)lick who gave bis first talk in English at a Seattle gathering. "Hadassah is the greatest thing that American Jewry has contributed to world Jewry," Mr. Bublick de- clared. "Hadassah is doing even more ood in America for its members than in Palestine and that is a tre- mendous thin;. Those women who enter the work of Itadassah for the sake of its philanthropic feature soon begin to feel the nationalistic spirit. It is the only Jewish organization in America that has escaped criticism. The first time that it has been spoken of in it degratory manner was per- haps this last year when they entered into the politics of the Zionist or- ganization, but Mr. Bul)lick thought this a good sign, showing that the Hadassah are interested not only in a the health welfare of Palestine but in :its nationalistic questions as well. A plea was ntade to the mothers to keep religion alive in the home. "You do not need to be afraid of giving your clfildren too much re- ligion," he said, "for no matter how much or how little they get, a great percentage of this is shed as they o out into the world. Religion ts necessary to keep alive the.'spirit of Judaism?' ': ". The finest review of Ludwig Lewi- sohn's book, "The Island Within" -et heard in Seattle, and it has beefl reviewed at least three times, was that given by Mrs. Bailey Dinkel- spiel at the rneet, ing Mondav. ']?he story was tohl briefly with the prin- ciple theme well explained. The author's purpose was well defined and the criticism made it a desiral)le book to read, and if once read, to re-read, in order to look for the reactions minted out by the reviewer. Mrs. Meyer Lurie gave an interest- ng resume of current events, em- pliasizing those touching on Zionism and Hadassah work. Miss Judith Zelman had on display goods from Palestine. Refreshments were served as suit- able to the celebratimi of the.Chami- sh'o Oser Sherat, the New Year of Trees, which is celebrated in Pales- tinc on the 26th of January. Raisens and fruit were serve<l from baskets and bokser, also,--that which is known its "St. John's Bread" in English speaking countries. PREMIER'S SON EMPLOYED BY ROTHSCHILD FIRM Vienna (J. T.
