IA)S ANGELES--Dr. Abl)a Ilillcl Silver, of Cleveland, national oh'fir- man of the $4,500,000 United Pales- tinc Appcld, and liberal Max Lcrner, of New York City, co-editor of The Nation, this week accepted invita- tions to ad(lrcss the third annual Western States regional conference of the Comwil of Jewish Federations 1 Am A German; WASHINGTON, D. C. (WNS)-- Dr. Ernst Meyer's attack on the Nazi regime came as no surprise to the German embassy, an of- flcial stated today, because he "belongs to the Jewish race, a fact which has not prevented him from swearing the oath of allegi- ance to Adolf Hitler, nor from working for over four years for the National Socialist regime in the Washington embassy, work for which he accepted the pay of the National Socialist govern- ment." To this, Dr. Meyer replied by pointing out that "my parents were born Christians and never belonged to the Jewish faith. There is some Jwish blood in my. paternal ancestry, but not enough to have disqualified me from gov- ernment service, even under the Nuremberg laws. "I was born and brought up a Christian and in Germany I was a member of the Lutheran Church. "There are many hundreds like me still in the German govern- ment service. They are loyally devoted to their country and in no way less German--or less Ar- yan, whatever that may mean-- than Adoif Hitler, if the word German implies loyalty to coun- try, eagerness to prove such loy- alty and readiness to serve Ger- many." resigned "s first secretary of the Ger- man cml)assy in Washington, D. C. Assailing the Nazi regime for hav- ing "betrayed what I knew to be the lasting interests of the German fatherland," Dr. Meyer said: "I couhl no longer conscientiously serve a government which I saw to be the foe of so many things I had 1)con taught Germany stands for. The moral 1.w and loyalty to the true Germany make surrender to National Socialism impossible. I cannot do otherwise, whether as a German or as a Christian." Dr. Meyer, who spoke at a dinner given in his honor by the l?ederal Council of Churches of Christ and the Universal Christian Council of Life and Work, made the first public de- nunciation of the Hitler government by a former mamher of the German (liph)nmtic service. Ill the course of his address, Dr. Meyer said that Nazi anti-Semitism and the myth of Nordic superiority are among the anti-German charac- teristics of N'tzism. "It is the disgraceful opposite of German and Nordic for the govern- mcnt and ruling party of a state of ahnost 70,000,000 inhabitants to drive a helpless minority of less than 500,000 to destruction," he said. "Nothing in this part of National Socialist policy gives evidence of moral or racial strength. If they were racially and morally strong, they could not have aroused the lowest human instincts in the masses and led in the performance of the President Roosevelt Slurred In Italy ROME (W. N. S.)--Growing anti- Semitic campaign in the government- controlled Italian press was given renewed impetus this week with pub- lication of a lurid article in I1 Regime Fascists denouncing Pres.

S.)-- Any 'tttcmpt to organize a local branch of the pro-Nazi German- American Bund in this city, which is the national lmadquarters of the American Legion, will meet with determined opposition of the Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars, leaders of both organizations an- nounced this week. The announce- ment was prompted by the disclo- sure that leaflets in German and English announcing an organization meeting of the Bund for March 14 had I)ecn secretly distril)uted in Indianapolis. Chicago Meet Causes Riot CHICAGO (W. N. S.)--A Nazi meeting at the Germania Club broke up in a riot here and led to arrest this week of two Nazis, two anti- Nazis and Dr. Eric yon Schroeter, professor emeritus of ronmnce lan- guages at Northwestern University. The disturbance began immediately after Wilhelm Kunze, organizer for the German American Band, conc[n- ded a speech. Professor Schrocter was attacked by uniformed Band members when he tried to question Kunzc. John Fisher and Ray Pauly, were also assaulted when they refused to give the Nazi salute. Emil Horitz, one of ](unze's guards, was at'rested on the coml)laint of a ncwsl)al)er l)hotogral)her, who charged the Nazi smashc(t his camera.

Lasker of Walt- ham, Mass., declared this week be- fore a Inter-Faith Conference on Consumer's Cooperative. "While American synagogues have not followed the lead of churches in cstal)lishing consumer cooperatives under religious auspices in this coun- try, the cooperative movement is haste to the Jewish land settlements Palestine where it has proved very successful," Rabbi Lasker said.

Sixty per ccn of the area, Mrs. Shulman pointed out, is owned by Syrian landh)rds. It has only one town, Safed, and a number of scattered settlements. In ancient times the territory was densely dotted with Jewish villages, of which one, Pekiin, reachable only by horse or donkey, still survives. IIadassah has contributed $400,000 Hard Problem: Who Is Right? NEW YORK (W. N. S.)--The de- sirability of a separate organization of Jewish teachers in New York's public schools was debated pro and con at the 11th anniversary hmch- eon this week of the Jewish Teachers Association 'ffter Borough President Stanley M. Isaacs declared he saw no reason for the existence of the or- ganization. He expressed the hope that "It will not be long before the separate groups of Jewish, Catholic and Protestant teachers will com- bine." Mr. Isaacs said that from the Jew- ish point of view he felt "we arc not a separate people." Simon J. Jason, president of the Association, took issue with Mr. Isaacs, pointing out that the Asso- ciation exists, to "improve the moral, social and religious training of the children. The Catholic and Protes- tant teachers' associations have equally high and nol)le motives. "We are not concerned with poli- tics. No nnc of these three groups expects to use the idtuence of its association other than for the good of the community." BUT= = Jews, Barred, Form Group KOVNO (W. N.

A two-year agreement was reached to conduct the anti-defamation pro- gram in Canada under the name of a new agency to be called the Joint Public Rclatiolm Committee of the Camtdian Jewish Congress and the B'nai B'rith. Both agencies will have seven lnenll)ers on the com- mittee. DID YOU KNOW? The Jews of Algiers, in the 14th Century, had to be severely rel)ri- mandcd by the Aral) governor as well as by their own rabl)i, Isaac bar Shcshct, because together with the native Arabs, they atteml)ted to block Jewish immigration.
