This resolution was obviously passed in defer- terence to the religious sentiments and convictions of the Ortho- dox members of the Order. Despite the fact that most of the members of the B'nai B'rith are not particular about the obser- vance of the dietary laws, they nevertheless felt that the small minority of strict Orthodox observers were embarrased at public functions or were compelled to remain at home in order to avoid ;uch embarrasment. The action of District No. 1 is highly commendable. It is an llustration of generous and liberal regard and respect for the religious convictions of the minority. In these times, when leaders of all religious denominations in the country are crying out for tolerance as a panacea for prejudice and hate, it may well be held up as an example. Gentiles as well as Jews, who are sincere in their endeavor to establish in the United States that freedom of worship and that sacred respect for religious convictions which the framers of the Constitution contemplated, may well emulate the action of District No. 1. The B'nai B'rith Order will gain strength because of its lib- eral attitude. It is the oldest and strongest of Jewish fraternal orders. Its standing as well as its achievements for the Jewish cause, are attributable to the fact that it represents and is composed of all elements of Jewry. The resolution relating to Kashruth will convince all that the B'nai B'rith Order is truly a Jewish Order, and that it concerns itself with the welfare and the safeguarding' of all branches of Judaism. [SDE] A lesson may oft be gleaned from a mere incident. An even may occur which superficially evokes but a passing interest, yet which on reflection, gives mucl CONTRABAND UNDER food for thought. An ordinary THE IMMIGRATION LAW happening frequently shatter and silences hours of eloquence and oratory. A newspaper recently published in an inconspicuous place in its column the following incident: 'An immigrant condemned to be sent back was standing on Ellis Island in the midst of a group selected for deportation, a- waiting the arrival of the boat. Suddenly a woman, Leona Reic thirty-seven years old, jumped into the sea. When a guard notic- ed that the woman was drowning, he jumped in after her and attempted to save her. But he was soon overcome by cramps and was himself beginning to drown. The condemed immigrant then came out of the midst of the crowd and dived into the sea First of all he saved the woman, bringing her to shore. Then he swam out to the guard and saved him too. In the meanwhile the ship arrived and the immigrant still wet, boarded it to go back to where he came from. It was not possible to secure the immi- grant's name." To the cursory reader, the foregoing account might have gone unnoticed. A more painstaking reader would have probably discovered it, scanned thru its lines, and passed on to other items of greater attraction. But had the reader been interested in the subject of immigration; had he still in mind the ranting of the super patriots in Congress against the undesireables immigrants were he on the verge of accepting the theory of Nordic supre- macy, he would have in all probability paused for reflection. And were fair and open-minded he might have commenced to feel serious doubts as to the broad statements and assertions of our immigration leaders.
