T. A. PALESTINE FREED FROM LOCUST PLAGUE BY STRONG GALE As in Biblical Times, Wind Saves Crop Jerusalem (J. T. A.)--As in Biblieal times, Palestine was saved from tile locust i)lague which threatened the Spring crop by a wind which SWel)t away the scourge.

A.)--The mineral wealth of the Dead Sea, the reputed bed of Sodom and Gemorrah, is es- timated to be eight hundred million pounds Sterling and equivalent of $4,000,000,000, a sum which wouhl be sufficient to pay the expenses of all nations who participated in the World War, declared Sir Herbert Samuel former High Commissioner of Pales- tine, in a lecture he delivered last night at the Westhourne Park Bap- tist Church. The difficulty, however, is, th( former High Commissioner stated that there must necessarily be great delay in obtaining and working the. concession for the extraction of this wealth. Sir Herbert expressed the belief that Palestine, when developed fully under the British Mandate would create an opportunity for three million Jews to settle and live there tinder the best conditions. "There is in every respect cause for satisfaction with the British work in the Holy Land," he said.

JEWISH LAWYERS OPPOSE ELECTION OF APOSTATES Budapest (J. T. A.)--What is de- scribed as an organized move to cast apostates from positions where they could be regarded as the representa- tives nf the Jewish community was made in the elections this week of a new board in the Budapest Bar As- sociation. The board is usually composed of fifty percent, Christian lawyers and fifty percent Jewish lawyers. In recent years a large numl)er of apos- tate Jews in the legal profession were elected to the board, heing counted as part of the fifty percent allotted to Jews. At the last elections held this week, Jewish lawyers of Budapest united to strike the apostates off the Jewish list. The thmgarian Jews ish weekly "Egyenloeseg" declares that this is the first organized step on the part of the Jewish community against the apostates, whose number has of late greatly increased.

Phons MAin 4UO from the Ford organization as soon as she realized that its goal couhl never be achieved through its met- hods. When American entered the war she left for Eurol)e and made it her duty to write and lecture about Amer- ica, eml)hasizing only the goo(l quali- ties of the New Worhl, because she hoped that America's prestige in Eurol)e might hasten worhl ])cace. l)csl)itc her strict neutrality, or rat- her he('ause of it, she was soon mis- rel)resented and persecuted by the evil minded on both belligerent sides. The one declared her to be a Gernum spy, and the other that she was an agent of the Allies lhMaunted, until the end of the war, she continued her efforts to hasten its end before a mili- tary victory should l)lunge the world into complete economi(, and social bankruptcy. At the end of October, 1918, when a national comwil of 15 members was formed in ihmgary under Count Mic- hael Karolyi, to take over the royal power, Mine. Schwimmer, though all- sent, was elected one of the Council and remained a member of it until the dnwnfal| of the Karolyi regime. During the same 1)(rind, she was sc letted as Hungary's minister to Swit- zerhmd, a pivotal diplomatic post, in view ()f Switzerland's neutrality during the war. Back in America, Mme. Schwimmer who intellectually and emotionally had become attached to the new world felt out of step. The war-hys- teria had not subsided. There were l)eople who would not forgive her for having tried her best to achieve l)eace hcfore Germany was crushed. Former associates also had grudges against her. Her lectures were boy- co(ted. As a matter nf fact, her lec- ture agent was threatened unless he would take Mme. Schwimmer off his list. The brilliant, popular lecturer was being systematically persecuted. Detective agencies paid t)y unknown sources circulated reports that Mme. Schwimmer was a Bnmhevik, that she was a Gimndist, an agent for the sin- ister capitalists, in short, the whole gamut of the anti-Semitic litany. Crushed by the conventionalities of machine civilization, Rosika Sch- wimmer still fights, protests, chal- lenges-all for her life--embracing ideal--world i)eace.--(Copyright 1(}2(,} by Seven Arts Feature SyMicate.)

NEW ANTI-SEMITIC PARTY TO BE FORMED IN ROUMANIA Middle-Class Elements To Be Drawn In Vienna (J. T.

'1". A.)--At the meeting of the Senate Immigration Committee held Wednesday, the Committee decided to report favor- ably a new bill recently introduced by Senator Stephens of Mississippi, which provides for the issuance of family visas to the head of the family on his departure for the United States. Under this measure, when the husband is granted a visa, his wife and minor children wmdd be granted visas at the same time, instead of having to wait and apply individ- ually after the head of the family has settled in the United States. The purpose of the bill, it is pointed out, is to facilitate the re-uniting of families. The family visas will be good for one year after issuance, hut will become invalid unless applica- tions for renewal for another year are filed with the consul at least sixty days prior to expiration of the first year. The bill will probably be suhmitted for vote in the Senate and if accepted there, will go to the House. The Senate Committee took no ac- tion on the Free bill for giving expert technicians preference quota status or the Box bill to regulate temporary admissions across the Canadian and Mexican borders hy restricting the general provisions of the temporary visitor clauses of the Immigration Law. It was decided to table the Free bill temporarily in order, to afford further tram for consideration of this measure. The Box bill wa referred to a sub-committee consisting of enator King of Utah and Senator Cop(land of New York, who are to decide whether the hearings on this bill should be held by the Senate Committee before the vote is taken thereon. This was done, it is under" stood, because of numerous requests which have been received instating on hearings on this bill. WARSAW KEHILLAH OPEN AGRICULTURAL SCHOOL Warsaw (J. T.
