SEATTLE uuuu1n1[1u1 WEEKLY BRAINSTORMS By Philip Tworoger A delegation of influential Catho- lics appeared before the Committee of Foreign Affairs of our House of Re- presentatives recently, requesting in the name of twenty million of their co-religionists that the United States sever its relations with Mexico, on account of the prosecution of Catho- lic Ecclesiastics in that Country. i Under the Mexican Law, the heads i of all religious denominations, the strict construction of which includes Priests, Ministers and Rabbis, must, <: be native born Mexicans. "? President Calles is enforcing that I law and as a result hundreds of foreign born Catholic Priests have been ex- pelled from Mexico. A strict enforce- ment of that law will probably cause most of the Protestant Ministers to suffer a like fate, as they are either American Citizens or British subjects, and there will be no Rabbis left in Mexico, as everry one of them is either American or German, or a na- tive of one of the Slavonian Coun- tries of Europe. A "Law is a Law" and should be enforced without fear or favor. It is being enforced part- ially, President Calles is merely doing what his oath of office provided that he should do. Unfortunately politi- cal parties in Mexico are divided a- long religious lines; while ninty-eight per cent of the population of the coun- NECKWEAR We are proud of the reputation our customers have given us as dealers in fine neckwear.

Portland's large Depart- ment stores and its principal business houses are Jewish". Seattle's are not. This may be probably due to the fact that a large proportion of Port- land's Jews are old settlers, while the bulk of Seattle Jews are composed of new-comers. What Seattle is in need is a dozen Nathan Ecksteins. The death of Dowager Queen Louise of Denmark, and the extensive at- tendance of European Royalty at her funeral, has again attracted public notice to the influence wielded by the Royal House of that small country upon the destinies of Europe. King Christian, the Ninth King of Denmark from 1863 to 1906 was called The "Father-In-Law of Europe". Alexandra, one of his daughters, was ueen of England, Dagmar, another, Czarina of Russia, his son George, vas King of Greece from 1863 to 1913, in which year he was murdered by a fanatic; one of his grandsons is King Haakon, of Norway, one of his grand- daughters is the present Crown Prin- :css of Sweden. King George of Eng- land also is his grandson. Excepting the Royal family of Great Britain, the Royal family of Denmark is more firmly entrenched on the throne, than any in Europe. This in spite of the fact that the Gov- crnment of the Country is very dem- ocratic and the present Prime Minis- ter, as well as the whole Cabinet, are Socialists. All parties in the country, however, from the most confirmed Reaction- aries, to the most radical Socialists, are loyal to the throne so long as the Monarch is willing to "reign without ruling". It may surprise most Americans to know that plain "Cal" Coolidge, President of the United States, the son of a simple Vermont farmer, pos- sesses more real power than any European Monarch, The President has power to veto any law proposed by Congress and his veto cannot be nullified except by a two-thirds vote of both branches of our National Leg- islature. No European Monarch would dare to refuse his assent to a law passed by the National Parlia- ment. The only exceptions are Italy and Spain, both of which countries the King retains his Throne by the "Grace of Dictators". It will interest Jewish ex-service men to be told of the rather clever move made by the American Legion. The four King County Superior Court Judges who are members of the Legion, Malcome Douglas, Charles of our readers who are in a position to do it and who observe the Passover sufficiently to have a Cedar at their home, to extend the hospitality to one or more of Uncle Sam's boys. If you cannot do that, contribute your mite towards a semi-public Cedar such as the one conducted by Rabbi Cohen. Second Palestine Exhibit Opens in Tel Aviv Jerusalem (J. T.
