O. B B., Spokane, Washington, which was held in September 1925, a motion was made and carried that we, in some way commemorate the birthday of Ida Bluen Straus, after whom our auxiliary is so named. We have a good many members in our organi- zation to whom there is no meaning to that name except that it is the name by which we are known, and as chairman of the committee appointed I was to have a paper ready on the life of our heroine for the meeting nearest to her birthday. First, on going into details, I was informed that the name was not Ida Blum Straus, as the papers had it, but Ida Bluen Straus. There- fore from now on we are to be known as the "Ida Bluen Straus, Auxiliary". Ida Straus was the daughter of Nat- han Bluen, a merchant and manufae- tureriof New York City, who came to the United States din'ins the summer of 1849 Ida Bluen was born in Worms Germany, on February 6th, 1849. She was six months old when brought to America, and was reared in New York City, attending public school No. 42. She was married to Isadore Straus on July 12th, 1871. Her father Mr. Bluen was a member of Temple Ema- nu-el New York City and Mr. and Mrs. Straus were members of Temple Beth-El, 5th Avenue and 76th street of New York.

The rains have started. Not in vain has the parched earth been waiting for the rains; they have come, pour down in torrents, bring- ing with them ice-cold, biting winds. The skies have become unrecogniz- able. For ten months they have been blue--drenched with the lucent glory of the fiery sun; now they are black and sinister-looking--ana it rains! It is winter.

They brought them from England--and there were rejoicings and ceremonies and speeches, and people thought about things. It may be that those people are right who say that this is not the time for the Jewish flag. On the borders of Palestine there is blood- I shed and fighting.

"Isador and Ida Straus" who that hereafter writes of Isador Straus can fail to write of Ida Straus? Linked in loyal life they were joined forever in a noble death. If Isador Straus was a great merchant, a great Philanthropist, a clear headed econ- omist and a noble citizen, Ida Straus was a great woman, also a great phil- anthropist a noble mother, a and loving wife. If Isador Strat the patriarch and honored head of great family, Ida Straus was the se- rene and indispensable mistress of an honored home. If Isador Straus was a civic and commercial power, Ida Straus was a social and domestic force. If Isador Straus, after life of honor- able living died a hero's death, so Ida Straus, after 40 years of loyal loving, found of her own choice a heroiness end. The beautiful examples of noble living and of noble dying meet in these remembered names. In an age of material absorbtion they have given a new and gentler illustration of the fidelity and ten- derness of love. In an age of domestic disloyalty and divorce they have wreathed a fadeless beauty around the deathless tie of marriage. In life they were united, in death they refused to be divided. As the world was better for their united liv- ing, so it shall be better for their loyal and undivided death. In attempting to give this paper on the life of Ida Bluen Straus, it was almost impossible not to mention the beauty of her heroic death, and the comments upon it and in summing up her life and her death, we cannot help but say that Spokane, choose wisely when they chose h . for our B'nai B'rith Auxiliaey. nm; our vloto: ervice, Fidelity and De- votion, was the embodiment of all that she held sacred.

In Bether--just outside Jerusalem--the legionaries were met by the members of the Jewish Opera Company and--after thousands of years of foreign domination--the Bether mountains, the Bar-Buchbah fortifications, rang with the sound of the Shofar when the Jewish banner was raised aloft! And now we have winter, and rains and cold winds. There is lmempioyment all over the world. But here in Palestine it fills us with terror. Tel-Aviv has 2,000 unemployed. The ships bring more workers and it is winter, it is raining and cold. The elections to the Assifath Haniv- eharim are concluded. Our highest legislative assembly is about to be opened. Will it be strong and wise enough to combat unemployment? How long will our winter last? Be- nmd the black clouds there is the sun trying to break through. Another month and the spring will come down from the mountains and the valleys will be green. Will our fears go with the spring? Will our hopes again be fied?7(Copyright 1926 by Jewish grapnie Agency, Inc.).
