It devotes five whole columns of its most important space--5 col- umns of Page 1--to a single news event. Such an unusual event deserves an explanation. Here is the ans- wer to your unvoiced, "What is this story to get so excited about? Has Hitler died?" And the answer is: No, Hitler is living. That's why the 5 columns of Page One to a single story. Because today, as The Transcript sees it, every Jew is acting out a piece of history--a drama that will take its place in the annals of civilization with the birth of Christ and the spread of Christianity, the rise of the Roman Empire, the discovery of the New World. Today, whether you realize it or not, you are living in a turning point of history. Part of that drama is the story of 250,000 Jews with- out rights in Austria; 500,000 "captive" Jews in Germany; 6,000,000 Jews facing grave disabilities, many millions actually starving. Today, Seattle Jewry is called upon to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT I Here is a test of whether Seattle's 16,000 Jews are content merely to dolefully sigh, "Too badl How terrible," or to cry, "Why don't we DO something?" Or-- Will you ACT in the most important crisis in the 2,000-year-old saga of the Jewish people since the Spanish Inquisition? HERMAN A.

"this is a battle for the rights of Jews to obtain the basic rights of any human beingl" BY MAX H. BLOCK Campaign Chairman, Seattle's Federated Jewish Fund The pursuit of happiness, the right to earn a living for one's family, the right to educate one's children--yes, every basic right of a human being living, in a presumably civilized world---has been taken away from hundreds of thousands of our heart=broken fellow Jews in many parts of Europe. POLAND, GERMANY--and now AUSTRIA I Human kindness is non-existent. Common decency has been for- gotten. Peace on earth, good-will to men are mere words. Everything that relates itself to civilization is being destroyed. Conditions in Eastern Europe for the Jew are pitiful. It makes one shudder to think of it. Our fellow Jews in Eastern Europe and those Who are being trans- ported to Palestine and other lands are brave men and brave women. We wonder where they get the strength to carry on. As for the children--they must be taken from these terrible con- ditions into Palestine and other countries where their minds will not be crazed by the tortures that prevail in their present homelands. We, who are so fortunate as to live within the borders of this great democracy, must not forsake these unfortunates. We must extend ourselves to do everything possible-else, how can we live at peace with ourselves? We cannot, we dare not, we MUST NOT fail in our dutyl We must muster up our courage with this thought, "Things that happen, however painful they are at the time, do not matter very much for long. Only how we behave towards them matters." Permanent happiness tends to make us selfish, oblivious of reality, uninterested in anything outside of our own happiness. We must guard against becoming smug and contented. We must not stand idly by while thousands of our people find life too tragic to endure. Our Federated Jewish Fund ts all-inclusive. The majority of the money raised goes to Europe and Palestine. It also provides relief for necessities within our own borders, including hospitals and educa- tional institutions. Failure on the part of anyone to give to this Fund means a FAILUtE to be at all interested in any Jewish need. We ask that you give, not only of your money, but of your time. We need workers. For years, the burden has fallen on just a few. This is not fair. You should consider it a privilege to help, even though it may be with just a few hours of your time. We need YOU I This is not merely a campaign for relief. It is a battle for the right of Jews to obtain the basic rights that are the just due of every[ human being. We must raise the $50,000 that has been set as our goal. Our Budget'C0mmittee has already allocated funds. A pledge has been made to J. D. C.-U. P. A., and all of the other 28 agencies included in the Federated Jewish Fund. We cannot break faith with them. We must fulfill our promise to them. We must be successful so that Seattle will be entered on tho honor roll of Jewish communities who fully asstme their responsibility in this great emergency l Give to this cause l Give to be at peace with your own consciencel
