MEMBERSHIP CAMPAIGN SHOWING GOOD RESULTS Vice-President Sol Esfcld, chair- man of the membership committee, reports that a substantial portion of the 150 new members required for the Grand Lodge Convention Drive has already been raised. Applications are coming in from all sides, and from all indications the drive will go over the top with plenty to spare long before it is scheduled to end. The offer of a fountain pen for each application still holds good. Bring your application to the next meeting and receive your pen. This offer does not end on April 7th, but will con- tinue until June 15th, when the drive will be over. However, we would like a large number to be turned in on April 7th, on the occasion of the visit of our Grand President. This is an opportunity for every member to do his share. One new member is easy to obtain, and your efforts will be rewarded with the fountain pen which you will receive. B. B. Lodge to Review Lewisohn's "Israel" Dr. Koch To Review Book, April 21st. April 21st the Seattle Lodge will, for the first time in its history, review a book. In th past the lodge has enjoyed with good results lectures, debates, and symposiums on Jewish subjects. The Educational Commit- tee in view of the approved manner in which the lodge has taken to the discussion of things intellectual be- lieves that the time is ripe to stage a book review. The book to be review- ed will be Ludwig Lcwisohn's "Is- real". As reviewer the committee has made a choice selection in Rabbi Koch. Following an extended talk on the book by Dr. Koch the meeting will be thrown open to the membcrs for expression and discussion. At the risk of being called a sub- scription agent, and obtaining free advertising space for the publisher, the educational committee requests every member to rcad the book befora the meeting of April 21st. It can be obtained at any of the book stores, and at the public library. Few books touching on the problem of the Jew has aroused as much discussion as Lewisohn's "Isreal". Whether one agrees or disagrees with Lcwisohn's conclusions it is admitted by Jew and non-Jew that "Isreal" is a thought provoking book. The literary style is excellent, and the historical data contained is illuminating. The Educational Committee be- lieves that its choice of a book. and the reviewer will meet with such general approval as to warrant a con- tinuation of presenting reviews of books affecting Judaism.
