Page Six World News of Jewish Import EMIGRATION DECREASING Moscow (J.T.A.)--Jcwish emigra- tion from Russia in 1923 was equal to only two-thirds that of 1922, ,ccord- ing to a report to the Russian corres- pondent of the J. T. A. 1)y thc Emi- gration DeI)artment of the Fnreign Office Most of the emigrants are re- cruited from among the parents and children of American residents. The decline in enfigration is attributed to news received in Russia from rela- tives in the United States of the dif- ficulties of making a living, and also the activities nf the Or( and the Joint Distribution Committee in organizing agricultural and handi- craft cooperatives. BULGARIA PROTECTS JEWS London (J.T.A.)--That the Bul- garian Government has taken steps to protect .Jews in Macedonia and has even forced the Macedonian Revolu- tionary Committee to make partial restitution of the money extorted by DISCUSS IMMIGRATION London (J.T.A.)--The l)hm for Jewish colonization, with a view toward a Jewish state, in the Crimea, was among the questions discussed at the monthly meeting of the Jewish Board of Deputies, which consists of representatives of all the Jewish com- munities in Great Britain. It was de- cided to have the Joint Foreign Com- mittee investigate the proposal and rcl)ort back on it to the next meeting of the Board. Another matter that was given con- sideration was the proposal to send a dclmtation to ltomc Secretary Hen- derson regarding the questinns of tim deportation and naturalization re- strictions on aliens. The situation with regard to deportation is par- ticul rly acute I)ecause of the recent decision of the British courts that they had no power to review depor- tation proceedings which were solely the province of the Government. The Committee discussed the vari- ous outbreaks of anti-Semitism in 00lcw|$b 00ran$rlpl INSPECTOR NOW PRISONER Odessa (J.T.A.)--From inspector of )risons to prisoner, from respect and authority to contemI)t and confine- men(, has been the fortune of Reich, the Inspector of Prisons in the Odessa District.

DR. C. W. ELIOT (Concluded from Page 2) that,. But if you will just assumc that what I state is true, then let me lloint out how this old man of ninety years --his mind sharpened by contact with maturing minds for 75 years, a scien- tist, a chemist whose text books were used for many years in the Iml)lic school, a I)otanist and hmdseallc architect--the deeper he delved into science and the more he was ahlc to break up the comllositi ons of the universe into their elements, the more firmly did lie become convinced that God Ahnighty created the uni- verse and guided it through the cons of time. With what better argument can we answer these half haked llhilosop hers --what more convincing example of Judaism can one find? Religion in Heart. Dr. Eliot does not helieve that re- ligion is solely a matter of l)hilosophy  --it is not till in the head. It must he in the heart--that part of our body that IIrOml)ts us to do good, to love mercy and to walk humbly with our fellow men. One of his friends has gathered in a volume called the "Late Harvest" a group of his lec- tures given hetwcen the ages of 80 and 90--the Late Ilarvest. Many of them deal with religion. Throughout all, his soul pleads for unity and toleration in religion. With all the eh)quence tit his command he says that the present (lay Christianity is wrong because it does not emphasize those teachings of Christ which tend for peace and harmony, the sacred- hess of the home, tile fatherhood of Posen and elsewhere in Pohmd. It. was rel)ortcd that the Joint Foreign Committee was endeavoring to secure a counsel's ollinion on the legality of the Numcrus Clausus law in IIungary. Religion of the Future"--I have my class read it each year because it has so many Jewish truths in it. To his great mind the religion of the future will lie--not Christianity but Juda- ism. It may not be called Judaism 1)ut its tenents will tie so inseparable from Judaism that we who profess Judaism will be proud of our past. A Friend of Jews. Personally, Dr. Eliot was a friend of the Jews. tle always attended their gatherings, wrote for the Me- norah Journal and spoke frequently before the society--he did everything to promote Jewishness and would not stamp it out. His successor is dif- ferent.
