But on April 12 he will make his debut as a concert artist at Metropolitan Theatre, on whose stage have played the world's most famous pianists. He will be sponsored by the Seattle Conference of Jewish Women's Organizations--the first time the group has lent its aid to a young artist. Pianist Krakovsky is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Morris Krak- ovsky, will play a difficult repertoire of Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, Mo- zart, Beethoven and Bach--all of wlich he knows by heart--besides three of his own compositions, written at the piano in the modest Krakovsky home at 820 31st Ave. The young pianist played for famed Leopold Stojowski here, won praise from Pianist Jose Iturbi. Tickets for his concert will be available at The Jewish Transcript, 1616 8th Ave. Reservations can be made at Prospect 3174. li.

On that date, at Bikur Cholum Synagogue, Label's 26- month-old, blonde, blue-eyed sis- ter, Esther Rachel, will be pre- sented in concert for the first time. Label's brother, David, who will celebrate his fourth birth- day April 6, will also sing Yiddish songs in his childish treble. Label knows 400 songs in Italian, Yid- dish, French, Russian, Hebrew and English by heart, goes to syn- agogue every Saturday, is other- wise a mischievous kindergarten student who may sing with the Portland Junior Symphony. Label, David and Esther Rachel are the fourth generation of can- tors in their family. Mrs. Schloss- berg, Palestinian born, is the daughter of a cantor also. RABBI EDWARD L. ISRAEL, straight-shooting, outspoken lib- eral Baltimore Reform spiritual leader who is also one of America's leading Zionists, made a $11,000 speech in Los Angeles last week. He crossed the continent to speak to 600 persons at a banquet of the Los Angeles Labor Committee for Palestine, which, paradoxically, was held in the swank Biltmore Hotel. Rabbi Israel is chairman of Histadruth's national execu- tive committee. He told how Jews are returning to the land in Pal- estine, how cooperatives are suc- cessful in Holy Land farming un- der Histadruth auspices. Rabbi Israel pointed out that Histadruth, made up of Palestine labor unions, has 80,000 members, plays a dominant part in Zionist councils in the Holy Land, is "achieving a true" labor democ- racy, built on social justice." 00lain (00alk (Continued from Page one).

It re,,tlly would be rio sldvation at all for us if the tragedy of the Jews were merely swalh)wcd up in a vaster i;ragedy of m,,uikind. Thus I speak to Mr. Zilch when tie sitys, "It looks as if England is throwi,,ig us to the dogs." But Mr. Zilch answers, "Is there nothing worth fighting arid dying for? Isn't democracy worth dying for? Isn't liberty worth dying for? Mr. Segal, you seem to be altogether a spineless llerson." You at'3 a bravo nmn Mr. Zileh. You "Lre willing to die for liberty, democracy and all that, even to the last ],nglishman. But is YOUR son going to dic for that, Mr. Zilch?

You ,,u'o qniLe as brave ns most other Americans who have only scorn for England because she will not send her children to fight the die- t,,toi's and makes peace with them; but the same Americans insist that we Ollrse]ves must stan(l aloof from ,,ill that.

Perhaps it may all turn cut for the best of the Jews, if you insist on looking at tile world from the Jewish interest. I like to think that art enlightened nation like England may serve to restrain the arrogance, greed and ruthlessness of the dictators. Not that ,,tssociatien with Enghaiid will give then( any moral scruples, but it may seem politic to be decent, to observe sonic of the amenities of civilization, in order to keep Eng- land's SUl)l),,)rt. ];ngland's government still bangs on the will of the t)cople ,,uul Enghand's supl)ort of Germany will only endure as h)ng as the conscience of lhe peo- ple wills it.
