A. recently held its fiftieth an- nual meeting. On March 23rd a fitting 'celebration was held to mark this event, so significant in the forward march of New York's Jewry, aye, in the forward march! of American Jewry. For, as was so succinctly brought out by Judge Irving Lehman, its president, the 92nd Street Y. M. H. A. of New York was the inspira- tion for the great chain of Jewish Centers throughout the United States, a chain linking up the Jew- ish youth of America into a great peace-time army striving mightily for Jewish and American ideals. "From a small lub founded fifty years ago; the Young Men's Hebrew Association has developed into a great organization whose influence is felt throughout the country," said Judge Lehman in his report. "It has demonstrated during two gen- erations its constantly increasing power to hold the young American Jew true to the finest ideals of race and country. In centers like ours they come to feel earnestly and deeply that the nanle of Jew is a mark of honor, but only if that name is worthily borne. For fifty Years the lives of those who were members here as boys or young men have shown that from such a feeling has come spiritual strength and that here their desire and ability to lead useful lives have been developed. "The Young Men's Hebrew Asso- ciation was founded because a group of young men conceived the idea that knowledge of and em- phasis upon Jewish ideals and tra- ditions would strengthen them mor- ally and make them better citizens. Because the idea of the Y. M. H. A. Was sound it has spread, but we Who are members and directors of this organization best know how Strong the influence of such asso- ciations can be made, how vital is the need for them in our communal life, and I welcome the occasion Upon Which we van tell others what We have learned in our work. I hope a trumpet call will go forth Which the older men and women Will hear--a call to stand behind their young men and women in their demand that they be given fullest opportunity for development as individuals, as Jews and as citi- ZEUS." Sounded by Judge Irving Lehman that trumpet-call to stand behind the Jewish youth in America, a Youth alive and vibrant with ambi- tion and idealism--filled with de- Sire to be of service to their coun- try, to their faith--will be heard, Will be heeded, is being heeded. Standing himself squarely behind the Jewish young men and young Women of America, as president of the Jewish Welfare Board, and in the midst of the responsibilities thrust upon him by his supremely merited elevation to the bench of the New York State Court of Ap- Peals, he has won the right to Sound this trumpet-call, a right freely recognized by American Jewry. For the opening phase of my in- terview I asked Judge Lehman to Carry the story forward to cover 1923, bearing in mind that just about a year ago he had granted me an interview in which he had discussed the achievements of the Welfare Board, especially its peace- time operations to the end of 1922. A Revelation of Real Achievement By way of reply, he picked up from his desk a condensed report for the period in question prepared by Harry L. Glueksman, the Wel- fare Board's executive director, a brief document but rich in content, rich in revelation of real achieve- ment. How real? Here is the ans- Wer: Ninety-one Jewish Centers in this country have their own build- ings. Six of them were completed Since November 1st. 1922, which together with four Others now in Process of construction, represents an investment of $3,500,000 by American Jewry for its youth. An- Other $2,000,000 has been made available for Jewish Center build- lns through campaigns that have been conducted during 1923. Lo- cated strategically, they are whole- somely influencing the lives of thousands upon thousands of Jew- ish Young men and women, recon- ciling the two generations, unify- lng all elements, wiping out the Petty dividing lines separating Jew from Jew, and raising the status of the entire Jewish community. "Not a single building fund cam- paign undertaken by the Board hat ever failed to reach the amount sought," Judge Lehman added, which is a rather modest way of pointing out how successful its propaganda has been and how effi- cient its methods and personnel are.

Jewish Soldiers and Sailors First "A few moments ago, Judge Leh- man, you intimated that the Jewish Welfare Board lacked sufficient funds to carry on the work it should like to do," I interrupted. "There is a rather general impression that the Jewish Welfare Board is beyond financial worry--that it has suffi- cient funds for all of its operations and projects." "If that impression exists," Judge Lehman replied, "it is an entirely mistaken one. "At the end of the war the Jew- ish Welfare Board placed $1,800,000 under the control of trustees. This: money had been raised for the pur- pose of sustaining the morale and providing opportunity for religious exercises for Jews in the Army and Navy of the United States, during the war. "When peace came we accepted the obligation of ministering to the welfare needs of Jewish men in the United States Army and Navy, and to aid disabled veterans in National Fund that it has opened negotiations for purchases of land m several districts and that any in- tervention on the part of others in regard to such ]ands would ad- versely affect this institution oper- ating with public funds. Prospec- tive purchasers and others were asked not to encroach upon the rights of the national land pur- chasing agency. HAIFA BAY DEVELOPMENT Jerusalem (P. C.)--It has been decided by the Jewish National Fund to make a significant pur- chase of land in the region of Haifa-Acre, where important devel- opments may be expected in the future in view of the decision of the Palestine government to build a harbor at Haifa. The Fund has come to an arrangement with the Haifa Bay Development Co. by which 15,000 dunams of the Sidon complex will be acquired by it. This purchase at the gate of the Jezreel Valley is in line with the policy of the Fund to concentrate and consolidate its possessions in this region. AGAINST MERGING OF FUNDS Jerusalem (P. C.)--The South African Zionist Federation has in- structed its delegates at the Zionist Congress, Vienna, to offer strong opposition to the proposal to merge i the two financial instruments of the Zionist movement, the Keren Hayesod and Jewish National Fund. every Jewish soldier in the Ameri- can service from Shanghai to New York, shall have the opportunity to attend a Passover Seder in camp or in town.

Only after that has been provided should we use any part of the funds contributed for us in the Army and Navy, to build up the morale of the great peace-time democratic army of the Jewish citi- zens of the United States. We have placed in the hands of our trustees all the funds still remaining in our possession, and have stipulated in the deed of trust that provision must be made first for the Jewisl soldiers and sailors still in the United States service, and for dis- abled veterans and their families.

B. picnic is the best evi- dence of th value of the Trans- cript as a medium of publicity. Not a word about the picnic was found in any of the daily papers, the only publicity given to it was in the columns of the Transcript and yet practically everybody was there, the only exceptions were those physically unable to get there by reason of the condition of their health, the extremely poor who couldn't afford the fare and the wealthy and aristocratic who didn't want to mix with the hoi poiloi. Bro. Shapiro certainly deserves a medal as Chairman of the Com- mittee. One more success and he will be in Sol. Esfeld's class. When some weeks ago Judge Dykeman resigned as Judge of the Superior Court and accepted a po- sition as publisher of the post-In- telligeneer, the old-timers were wondering what the meaning of it was. The increased advertising in the Post-Intelligencer and the greater local atmosphere which it now has is the answer. William Randolph Hearst at no time enjoyed a very great degree of popularity in Seattle, the Con- servatives have about the same de- gree of affection for him as we have for the Grand Dragon of the Klan! Neither the Progressives nor the Labor Unions trust him. The Democrats regard him as an auxiliary Republican! Republicans look upon him as a good deal of a Bolshevik. The Post-Intelligencer, while in- creasing its circulation was in the red more and more at the end of each month because of lack of ad- vertising. Editors-in-Chief were com- ing and going with great fre- quency. C. E. Rosewater came here was banqueted and feted by Judge Burke and the Chamber of Com- merce crowd told him what a great man his father was and that he was a worthy son of the founder of the Omaha Bee, but cooperation stopped right there. The income from the advertising end remained in the same deplorable condition Rosewater was called to New York and decapitated with an efficiency and ease worthy of a Kemel Pasha desiring to get rid of a matrimonia incumbrance. Griffiths and Holman shared a like fate. rhat the Post-Intelligen- cer needed was not an experienced newspaperman or publisher, but' someone that knew Seattle; knew Seattle people; knew how to gain their confidence a n d support ; could make them feel that he wasn't interested in Seattle merely from a standpoint of William Ran- dolph Hearst, but interested in Se- attle people. One who is a part of the City itself, one who in an emergency would consider Seattle "first." Such a man was found in King Dykeman. His thirty years residence in Seattle and his prac- tically life-long residence on Puget Sound, the enormous acquaintance possessed by him by reason of his twenty-year career as Assistant Cor- poration Counsel and Judge. The friendships formed among al 1 classes in the community and the confidence which they all feel in him is to William Randolph Hearst a far greater asset than Griffith's and Hohnan's experience as pub- lishers and the fact that C. E. Rose- water is the son of one of the greatest journalists America ever had, Victor Rosewater, the founder and publisher of the Omaha Bee.
