&apos;' ! <C2 PAGE EIGHT THE JEWISH TRANSCRIPT, SEATTLE MARCH 17, 1933 Herbert Schoenfeld Tells Of Horrors In Quake Area (Continued from Page 1) they flocked, grouping together, waiting . . waiting in abject fear for the Unseen Thing which seemed to have them in its powerful grasp. The hours following the first shock were fear-laden. Intermediate shocks followed in undulating frequency through the night, climax- ing in two great tremblers Saturday evening and early Sunday morn- ing and "repeats" Sunday evening and at 4:25 o'clock Monday morn- ing. By Wednesday, the forty-third earthquake had been recorded. Scores of hotel guests spent sleepless nights in the lobbies and those in high buildings were sea-sicked into fear-stricken helpless- ness from the swinging and swaying of buildings, from which escape seemed impossible. Disaster brought everyone closer to each other. An indefinable spirit of brotherhood, born of common helplessness, found total strangers relating personal experiences framed in fearful recollections to each other. In the stricken zone, sights of horror and destruction abounded. Newspaper accounts, newsreels and photographs will serve to show the scenes of disaster, but the human suffering, the frayed nerves the soul desolation and fears during the repeated upheavals are unique experiences. May it never come to them who have not been involved in an experience so soul-trying as to impress the mind that the end has really come! Albert Einstein Is Self-Exile As Thousands Of Jews Flee Germany (Continued from Page 1) Rochester, N. Y.; tIenry H. Sattler, Leon Jaffe and Solomon Fried- man of New York City that they had been brutally attacked by Nazis. Max Schussler, American resident in Berlin, and his wife were seized by Nazis and maltreated after a Nazi tenant in Schussler's house said he "would pay no rent to an American Jew" because Nazis won the election. Throughout Germany Jews today were withdrawing funds from banks and fleeing to France and Switzerland. Constant conferences are being held by German Jewish leaders, who are communicating with Jewish leaders in England and the United States, despite rigid censorship on cables. Assault on Jews, young and old, men and women, is taking place in all parts of Germany. Uniformed Nazi "storm troops" stationed themselves in front of major Jewish department stores, preventing customers from entering, forcing the stores tc suspend business. Brainstorms (Continued from Page 7) Sorry, we are unable to agree with Mr. Joseph. The true spirit of American citizenship consists in exercising your rights as citizens. Seeing that your race is properly represented in various public offi- ces is one of these rights, pro- vided that those that you support for a position are persons of in- tegrity, honesty and fit to hold the positions for which they are being supported. The writer fails to see the differ- ence between wanting to be repre- sented in the board of regents of the state university and wanting to be represented in the judiciary of the state. Both these positions deal with all classes of citizens, and it is no more than fair to have all classes of citizens represented. True Americanism means fair- ness to all races and creeds, and desiring a representation in accord with our numbers and influence in the community is nothing bu fair- ness to our race. y STARTING TODAY!

For he has been ten years in the Hebrew Un- ion College, and they are observ- ing this anniversary. So they have collected vari- ous of his writings to put them into a book, a sort of new Bible, to be called "Social Sub- stance of Religion." This they are publishing to commemorate his anniversary. He has written on what is a good Jew: "A Jew is a good Jew not in proportion to the number of doctrines in which he believes or the number of rituals he performs, but in proportion to the number of Jews he understands, on occasion serves and, if possible, loves. He is a Jew who is alert to the pos- sibilities of stimulating friend- ships." "This is not a bad characteriz.a- tier of Cronbach himself," says Horace M. Kallen, who has written an appreciation of Cronbach for the book. * * * He entered the Hebrew Union College as a student, 25 years ago, a dreaming boy from Indi'anapolis, whose heart was beating high to the drumbeats of the Salvation Army ,in his town. He used to stand at the edge of meetings and the drumbeats were the footsteps of righteousness, ,marching. God was marshalling his sol- PLUS RRST-RUN PICTURES STARTLINGLY LOW PRICES [5 C TII C After 6 and after Ll I on Sat., Sun. and Holidays diers ....

And what could Orthodoxy have offered him? . . . An embalmed J corpse wrapped in the swathings of ritualism. I think Cronbach still hears drums beating. They beat ,for the march of mankind toward a more right- areas social scheme and God is the captain. It is a long and difficult march up steep mountains, over jagged rocks, throtrgh the thorns. And, it is to be guessed, th com- passion of Cronbach is not for the Jewish pilgrims alone. For it is one travail of one brot.herhood. (Copyright S. A. F. S.)

See for yourself. We did---at a preview. And we think "Maedchen in Uni- form," now at the Blue Mouse Theatre, is the finest foreign film we have seen. Do not expect an elaborate and ornate cinema for here is simplicity itself--in theme, background and acting. Here is one film that brings a re- freshing change from the or- dinary run of pictures. The story is one of youth in a Prussian girls' school where author- l ity and rigid discipline crush alI understanding and sympathy until near-havoc is reached in the life of the sensitive pupil, Manuele. Girls in the film were chosen from schools in Germany, where the pic- ture was made, which explains the freshness, realism and complete sim- plicity of the picture. Titles are in English, but hardly needed.--D.M.W. M ETROPOLITAN "Tattle Tales," with Frank Fay and Barbara Stanwyck in person, comes to the Metropolitan Theatre March 24-25-26.
