The history of the Jews in Germany was reviewed by Governor Lehman of New York, who pointed out that "for countless generations Germans of Jewish faith have lived and worked, fought and died, for that country. Now, hundreds of thous- ands of men and women in all walks of life have been ruthlessly and with- out pity deprived of their means of livelihood and of the prim'ary rights of citizenship. The German people have always striven for the principles of civil and religious liberty. I am confident that they will do so again, and will refuse to continue to be de- luded by falsehood and misrepresen- tation."

Other speakers on the question were Philip Tworoger, Manny Segel, Jacob Lighter, M. Savelson, Julius Shafer and M. Rosenberg.

P. Wohlge- lernter at the Chesed Shel Emes chapel. It was a sad Father's Day. But even in death, his many friends honored the veteran Jewish worker, who was one of the "fathers" of the Seattle Talmud Torah and saw it grow from a tiny school housed in a ramshackle building to a large institution with its own brick edifice. And so, after rites at the Chesed Shel Emes chapel, the funeral cor- tege moved to the Tahnud Torah, where Rabbi Max J. Wohlgelernter, I educational director, told of the many work-filled hours Jacob tlur- witz spent in the cause of Jewish education. A last tribute was paid also at the Bikur Cholum Synagogue, where Cantor N. Schlosberg chanted solemn Hebrew melodies. Internlent was at Oaklake Cemetery.

Many large fortunes and an un- counted number of lesser ones have been made from the min- ing of metals. In the matter of efficiency, the business of metal mining has kept pace with other indus- tries. Enlargement of geologi- cal knowledge, advancement in metallurgy and other improve- ments have done much to elimi- nate the hit-or-miss methods of earlier days. Practical and experienced min- ing men know these principles and understand their applica- tion. Consequently metal min- ing is no longer a gamble, but a business. Investors who seek the largest possible return for their invest- ment know and appreciate this. They invest on property merit and management that fully meet these exacting require- ments. They treat mining as they would any other business. We maintain a complete statis- tical department on all listed mining securities. This infor- mation is yours for the asking.
