At this last meeting there will be the usual transaction of business and also the report on current events by Morris Robbins. Owing to the many things that took place at the last meeting, it was im- possible to take up the discussion that was being conducted by the Lodge. Two meetings ago the dis- cussion was commenced on "The Causes of Anti-Semitism." So much interest was created that the educa- tional committee decided to continue it. This discussion will again take place at the meeting of June 16th Many members have signified their intention of speaking on the subject and an interesting and lively debate is anticipated. The meeting will start promptly at 8:15 in order that the discussion might properly be completed at this meeting.

The Junior Girls offered their first program Tuesday evenmg, June 8th, before the senior lodge. As to the  i sticcess of the program, it seems adequate to say that we hope all other undertakings of ours will be as successful. All the girls did their bit in the work and were amply rewarded by the en- thusiasm of the Ladies' Auxiliary. Our next meeting which is also to be our last for this season will be on Tuesday, June 29th. It promises to be ver. interesting and we qre ex- pecting all our present members plus new members. The surprise prize for the most girls brought in will be awarded on that evening. Turn out for the next meeting! national Insitlon  Yrom Coast to Coast Convention News By Mark M. Litchman, Chairman Publicity Committee The Olympic Hotel reports that about 250 delegates and their families have made reservations for the com- ing convention. Were it not for the fact that the hotel is a very large one, I would have no hesitancy in chang- ing the name to Hotel B'Nai B'Rith. But whether the name be Olympic or B'Nai B'Rith, with such a large family gathering there I have a half a mind to engage a room and imper- sonate one of the delegates, say, Brother Sam Stern of San Francisco, who, if fate doesn't take a kindly hand in his affairs, will find himself reg- istered in two places. Delegates are being registered at other hotels, and from the packets of mail received by Brothers Leo Wets- field and Irving Lewis every mail de- livery, it looks like the hotels will have to turn away. good cash cus- tomers but not Ben Briths. Brother William Ascher of San Francisco writes for a point of in- formation, to-wit: why he was not sent copies of the Jewish Transcript. As Chairman of the Publicity Com- mittee, Brother Ascher, I will grant your point of information, and will order the Publisher of the Jewish Transcript to send you copies from now on. Brother Herman Horowitz, Publisher of the Jewish Transcript, is to be given the thanks, for it is he who is donating the paper, and the space for my stuff to fill up. Brother David Goldman of Oakland immediately after I enquired about that city wrote to Brother Leo Wets- field, our genial Chairman of Reser- vations, to be sure to get him a cer- tain kind of a room. Oakland, we are here to serve, so send on your reser- vations. Our good Brother, Richard E. Gustadt, is so busy that it is only now and then he gives us the inside information of the big things to take place at the Convention. I intent to take a course in publicity when he arrives under his direction. Big news he gives out sparingly. Word has been sent that Rabbi Elliott M. Burstein of Salt Lake City is to be the Grand Orator. It is needless to say that the trip to Seattle will be well paid by hearing Rabbi Burstein. Los Angeles is very enthusiastic about the coming convention, par- ticularly about the Second Vice Presidency. Rabbi Magnin is their choice, and the City of Angels is doing its utmost to send up a big delegation to make sure of his elec- tion. The following article is taken from the B'Nai B'Rith Messenger. RABBI MAGNIN IN LINE FOR GRAND LODGE OFFICE Seattle Officials Preparing Warm Reception for Delegates to June Convention. By L. Lee Bernstein Past Grand President M. J. Fink- enstein of District No. 4 was one of the speakers at the meeting Tuesday evening, and advised the members of Los Angeles Lodge that the Grand Lodge Convention will be held in Seattle, Washington, June 27-28-29. He spoke at some length on the work of the Grand Lodge, giving much valuable information, and urged a greater interest on the part of the members of the local lodge in Grand Lodge affairs, particularly urging the attendance at Grand Lodge conven- tions. He touched upon the coming Seattle Convention and requested all Past Presidents to attend whether they are appointed delegates or not. The officers of Seattle Lodge are putting forth a great effort and mak- ing elaborate preparations for the re- ception of members throughout the District and all who attend will re- ceive a royal welcome and splendid Established 104 Years Graduation Apparel for the Boy We feature smart and correct styles in Boys' Clothing, Fur- nishings and Headwear at rea- sonable prices.

I Magnin, of Temple B'nai B'rith, Los Angeles, will most likely be elected I] to the office of Second Vice-President, lid position which would put him in ! I line for the Grand Presidency within two years. Rabbi Magnin has been very active in the activities of the B'nai B'rith, being a Past President of the Los Angeles Lodge, at present head of the Anti-Defamation League (a dell- cate position which he has handled with dignity and efficiency), and dur- ing the occupancy of the office of Grand President by Brother M. J. Finkenstein, traveled over the entire district as Grand Orator. In this capacity Rabbi Magnin secured for himself a wide group of friends and admirers, because of his splendid and fiery oratory, his earnest sincerity and his ability to present Jewish sub- jests with dignity and interest not only before Jews but before non- Jewish communities, thereby incul- cating a spirit of tolerance the bene- fit of which can scarce be over rated. It is the hope and expectation of the officers of Los Angeles Lodge No. 487 that a large and representative delegation be present at Seattle dur- ing the convention. LADIES AUXILIARY B. B.

Mr. Irving Lewis, Secy., Seattle Lodge No. 503, I.O.B.B. Seattle, Washington. My dear Mr. Lewis: I would appreciate your calling the attention of the members of your Lodge to the B'nai B'rith summer camp which the Portland Lodge maintains. The camp is not run on a profit- making basis but is run for the pur- pose of giving Jewish boys and girls of Oregon and Washington the benefit of Jewish associations and providing them an opportunity of spending their summer m a very profitable and healthy manner. This is the fourth year of the camp and it has not been marked by a single case of sickness or accident. The camp has been growing larger and larger and we feel sure there must be a considerable number of Seattle Jewish boys and girls who would be interested in attending. Any courtesy that you may extend to me in the way (if giving pul)licity to our camt I, which promises to have an enrollemcnt of about two hundred, will be greatly appreciated. Fraternally yours, Harry M. Kenin, HMI:RA-Enc. Exec. Director. The Seattle Progressive Fraternity In spite of the wonderful weather we had last Sunday, the Seattle Progressive Fraternity met at 11 A.
