DETROIT HAS 42,000 JEWS Detroit (J. T. A.)--Detroit Jews number only 42,000 souls, according to a survey just completed by the Bureau of Jewish Social Research of New York.

ARABS SUPPORT KING HUSSEIN Jerusalem (J. T. A.)--The confer- ence of Moslem notables and mufthis held here acknowledged King Husscin of Hedjas as Caliph and issued a strong appeal to the Moslem popula- tion of Palestine urging them to recognize the new Caliph. The appeal emphasized the honor bestowed upon the Arab nations in the ascension to the Caliphate of an Arab after four hundred years during which it was held outside of the Arab countries.

East Spruce St. SEATTLE, WASHINGTON RABBIS CAMPAIGN TO PROVIDE MATZOTHS New York (J. T. A.)--Prominent Chassidic Rabbis and leaders of or- thodox congregations arc engaged in an extensive drive for the purl)ose of raising a sum of money sufficient to provide those Ukrainian Jews who are in need with matzoths for the coming Passover holidays. This is in accordance with the old tradition among the Jewish people of taking particular care of the poor during the Passover holidays, especially in providing them with matzoths. 15,000 Jews In Need According to the figures received[ here by the Campaign Committee I the city of Kiev alone has about I 15,000 Jews who are without the I means of supplying themselves with I this necessary food for the holidays. The call which has been sent out by the campaign committee in New York to the congregations all over the country has already met with some response, the ortlmdox congre- gations in the city of Ptfiladelphia pledging themselves to the amount of $10,000. Similar response is expected from othcr large Jewish centers, it is the purpose of the Committee to take care also of the Ukrainian Jews who are stranded in various parts of Europe. JEWISH NATIONAL COUNCIL IN KOVNO LEGALIZED Kovno (J.T.A.)--Dr. Samson Ros- enbaum, former Minister of Jewish Affairs, has completed a bill legalizing the Jewish National Council. The bill also provides that every Jew who declares himself unwilling to join the Jewish Community is automatically exempt from any Jewish obligations. It is not believed, however, that any Jew will take advantage of this provision which was introduced to satisfy the objections of the anti- Semites who claimed that the legal- ization of the Jewish National Coun- cil would create a state within a state in Lithuania. RABBI'S INJURIES FATAL Philadelphia (J.T.A.)--Rabbi Alex- ander Gross, cantor emeritus of the Congregation Adapth Jesurun, died from injuries received when he was struck by a motor car.

ZIONIST ACTIVITIES PALESTINE A "CALIFORNIA" That Palestine is destined to be- come "the Southern California of Asia" was the opinion expressed by Professor Elwood Mead of the Uni- versity of California in his first lmb- lic report on his survey of Palestine made at the invitation of the World Zionist organization. His report was given at a meeting at the Hotel Astor held under the auspices of the Palestine Foundation Fund of which Samudl Untermycr is President. David A. Brown of Detroit also spoke, declaring that service and not enthusiasm will rebuild the Jewish national homeland. Judge Bernard A. Rosenblatt presided. Professor Mead said that the rural colonization of Palestine has passed the pioneer period and that the country bears a remarkable resem- blance to California. He referred to Bcnjamina, one of the most flourish- ing colonies in Palestine, which is composed entirely of graduates of the California College of Agriculture. "Science, skill and industry can make of the plain of Esdralon and the Valley of Jczrcll", he said, "as great a picture of rural charm and agricul- tural opulence as now gladdens one's vision in going from Los Angel- es to San Bcrnardino. "The Jews are bringing to their ancient homeland the same optimism and energy which characterize my home State." Funds for the development and the financing of land buying on a large scale are the immediate need in the rebuilding of Palestine, according to Professor Mead. HADASSAH APPOINTS REPRESENTATIVES The National Board of Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization, announces the appointment of Mrs. Nellie Straus Mochenson as its official representative in Palestine. Expansion of activity, and the growing interest on the part of the American Jewish Woman in the actual details of Hadassah services in Pales- tine, have made imperative the es- tablishment of a personal contact between Hadassah and its Palestine agencies. DR. WEIZMANN MEETS NEW YORK JOUNALISTS New York--A luncheon was given at the Ritz-Carlton by Herman Bern- stein, editor of the Jewish Tribune, so that Dr. Chaim Wcizmann might meet a group of New York journalists in advance of the New York City campaign of the Keren Haycsod. Dr. Weizmann in his speech said that the Jew is of inestimable vahm in reclaim- ing the desert and waste lands of the Near East in cooperation with the Arabs, that 2,500,000 trees have been planted, roads built, swamps drained and olive and orange groves culti- vated. He claimed that the rcpots of trouble with the Arabs had been greatly exaggerated and that at )resent there was no friction worth mentioning. Among the guests at the luncheon were S. S. McClurc, the publisher, Dr. Charles H. Levermore, winner of the Bok Peace Prize, Nor- man Hapgood, Prof. James Melvin Lee, John O'Hara Cosgrove, Charles T. Thompson of the Associated Press and many prominent publicists. RARE LIBRARY ACQUIRED London (J.T.A.)--A rare library of ancient oriental and Hebrew liter- ature has been purchased for the University of JePusalem by the Lon- don committee of the University. The library, which consists of 6,000 volthnes, was formerly the property of the learned Jewish professor Gold- ziher of Hungary. It is understood ttmt the Hungarian Government has already given permission to have the library taken out of the country. Action Committee Conference Closed London (J. T. A.)--The Actions Committee of the Worhl Zionist Or- ganization, meeting hcrc in confer- ence, has, after a week's heated dis- cussion of the question of the forma- tion of the Jewish Agency, adopted a resolution which welcomes the recent- ly displayed willingness of important non-Zionist circles to participate in the upbuilding of the Jewish National Home in Palestine. The resolution gives particular expression to the Actions Committee's gratification with the resolution adopted at the conference of the American non-Zi- onists, held in New York on February 17th, under the Chairmanship of Mr. Louis Marstmll. The resolution also expresses satis- faction with the fact that the Jewish trade unions of America, who were up to now, indifferent to the Palestine problems, have now taken another course in the matter and have decided to particit)ate in the upbuilding of Palestine. These events, the resolu- tion goes on to say, arc important as basic factors in securing the coopera- tion of the entire Jewry toward the upbuilding of the Jewish National Homeland. The Actions Committee requests, therefore, that the Execu- tive continue its efforts for the pur- pose of forming a Jewish Palestine Council which should cooperate with the Jewish Agency. The Actions Committee expresses, fiimlly, its strong conviction that the Jewish people are willing to carry out the great task of upbuilding Palestine, and the Zionist'Organization is, there- forc, prepared to do everything to bring about an harmonious collabora- tion on the basis of joint duties and joint responsibilities. PALESTINE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY IS OPENED Jerusalem (J.T.A.)--The third ses- sion of tim National Assembly of Pallestinc Jewry opened on March 24th. The Executive Committee of the National Assembly has published a draft of the election laws for the New National Assembly which is to be con- voked later. Thc draft which will be discussed at the third session of the )resent Assembly provides that the right to vote for oiIiccrs to the Nation- al Assembly should be given to every man and woman over the age of 20, and the right to stand for election to every man and woman over the age of 25. Representation is to be on a proportional basis, one deputy being elected for every 300 electors. RABBIS PURCHASE LAND Jerusalem (J. T. A.)--Announce- ment has just been made of the good results of the recent visits to Pales- tine by the Polish Rabbis and In- dustrialists. The visitors have de- cided to establish a spinning factory in Tel Aviv with a capital of 10,000 pounds. The Gcrer and Sokolower Rabbis are the chief shareholders. Another result of the visits has been the purchase of thousands of dunam of land in the neighborhood of Tiber- ins, Jaffa, Pctach Tikvah and other colonies. The Jews have developed in Pales" tine the second largest wine center ill the world. The Ten Comandments is the !argest undertaking ever atteml)tcd in moviedom. It occupied CecAl de Mille and his corps of workers te months. It was due to the indomitable en" ergy of Jacob Schiff that the Unio Pacific railroad was rebuilt in 190L which has madc tile west so pr#" perous.
