Vaughn Arthur of Seattle, Professors Felix Winternltz and Alex- ander Shedlovsky of Boston and the American Conservatory of Chicago.

Dear Sir: Reading in your last issue of the 3rd instant that your committee has succeeded in defeating the Public School Bible Reading Bill in your state, I take this opportunity to congratulate you and your commit- tee, being such close neighbors to the Province of British Columbia where we have similar tasks of the same nature with success telore us. Hence I decided to write you a few lines to congratulate you and your :ommittee who have succeeded in defeating the said bill in your state. I know it is no easy task for our co-religionists in the State of Wash- ington who are in the minority against the people and the clergy oI the different creeds in ?'our state. Considering the agitation for Bible reading in the public schools in every state in the Union, you and ):our committee have done wonderful work and deserve the thanks and con- gratulations of every co-religionist in your state. Yours truly, F. Landburg. DANZIG -- Hitlerites demonstrat- ing in Danzig today injured a Pales- tinian Jew, Dr. Naphtali Lipshitz.
