Makes Statement on Mexico Proposition Chicago, Sept 4 (J. T. A.)--Adolph Kraus, President of the Independent Order of B'nai B'rith, the only Jew- ish organization now active in Mex- ico, commented today on the state- ment of the Mexican President, Gen- eral Calles, concerning the possibili- ties of Jewish emigration into Mexico. "For three years past," said Mr. Kraus, "the B'nai B'rith has been in close touch with the Mexican situa- tion and has taken such steps to ameliorate conditions as the pro- gress of events in that country made necessary or desirable. As a prclim- inary to any work in Mexico, our First Vice.President, Mr. Archibald Marx of New Orleans, and Rabbi Martin A. Zielonka, of El Paso, Texas, both of whom have visited Mexico many times, wcnt there, in- vestigated conditions, and provided temporary agencies to assist strand- ed immigrants. Later Rabbi Ziel- onka and Dr. Left of El Paso made another survey of conditions there. Many an immigrant who today is prospering in Mexico owes his start to the moral and financial supl)ort tendered to him by the Order. B. B. Work in Mexico "Rel)resentatives of the Order in the Texan border towns have person- ally interviewed hundreds of Jewish emigrants on the Mexican side of the border, have impressed upon them the folly of any attempt to ew(le our immigration laws, and have given them financial aid until they could become self-supporting in Mexico. In (,his work we have had the support and help of the Mexican Government and our own l)epartment of Labor. "At Verw Cruz, where most of the inmfigrants to Mexico disembark, a representative of the Order, Mr. J. Wcinberger, met every incoming boat, and where an immigrant was without funds, hell)ed him to get inh) contact with his rehttives in America if he had any, and if not, advanced him funds for his immediate assist- anee. Mr. Wcinberger has now been placed in clmrge of a lmmch ottice of the ()rder which has been opened in Mexico City. At present he is in Juarez, Mexico, studying the con- ditions at th,Lt point, lie will lie l)cr- mancntly in Mexico City after Sep- tember 15. He is a man who has had almost twenty years of exl)criencc in various parts of Mexico. So f'w, I believe, the B'n,'ti B'rith is the only Jewish organization which has done any work in Mexico. Danger of Too Many "There is a point that should not be passed without comment. Ac- cording to the report, General Calles speaks of a $2,000,000 fund to estab- lish industries and agricultural coh)- nies. So far as the latter is concern- ed, investigations of the agricultural possibilities give little, promise of the success of such ventures for quite sometime to come. Industries, of the type suggested, do not exist at pre- sent, and their establishment can come only slowly and largely as a re- sult of private initiative. I very much fear, therefore, that thousands of refugees may be induced by the publicity given to the interview to come to Mexico before favorable conditions can be created to take care of them.

Immigration has thus far been small, and is being gradually bsorbed. A too hasty increase in the immigration might very easily create a difficult situation both for those who are arriving and for those who are already estal)lished. "Investigation hy American Jew- ish organizations interest,cd in the Mexican situation will of course lie materially assisted now that the sympathetic co-el)end, ion of the Mexi- can Government is assured. It is to be hol)ed l.h't the results (if such an investigation will justify (is all in the belief that a country has t)ecn foun(l in which the persecuted among our liCOllle can find a h'ven of safety."

HAUPTMAN'S ALL-ARTIST ORCHESTRA Contributions of Jews To Human Progress (Continued from page 6) early as Cain and Abel's time our azmestors had learned the art of agriculture and domestication of ani- mals, a stage not reached by the North American Indians when Co- lumbus came to this ('ountry. Cain was a farmer, and Abel a sheep herder. During Tubalcain's time the Jews were forging iron, a wonderful human accomplishment. Still later in Noah's time, our forefathers were building ships. From this it is evi- dent that the Jews were a highly civilized people long before so-called authentic or written history begins. And when the written curtain rises on the Dama of National Life we find the Jews worshipping one God, with all others practicing polytheism, animism or magic. I While the Egyptians and Baby- l Ionians were its materially advanced as the Jews, it was in their concep- tion of God, and with it, their con- cel)tion of nature and the Universe, I that the Jews had progressed far be- yond all other peuples. For while the Jews were worshipping one God, the Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans were l)aying tribute to pagan gods; and the tribes in Eng- hm(l, Germany and France, along with those in America were wor- shil)l)ing innumerable spirits in ani- mals, trees, and what not. Idea Given to World I But this gr'md and magnificent [ idea, like others of an important na- ture, couhl not he h)ng the cxchisive: possession of one l)eol)lc, and it! lhcr( fore was given to the rest of the world. As ra )idly as those people I wilh whom the Jews came in contact advanced materially, found their lie - gan gods iml)otcnt , and were, Callabh of grasping its tremendous intel- lcctu.d, moral and religious signifi- cance, they be(anle COllverts to it. The (3hristians, and l:d,er the Mo- hannuedans accepted it, anti by these two jt is now I)eing taught to l)eol)h of backward countries. Starling with the Jews (hen, this wondcrful eoneel)t is now being spread t<l tim "four corners of the earth." Notwithstanding certain min()r dif- ferences between thc ,lewish, Christ- inn "rod Moh.mmmdan religions, they all have their starting point in the one thing, Lhe "Oneness ,if (h(l." It is this c,mcept, "Unity in (hid," which the .Jew has contributed to the worhl's moral 'rod religious i)rogress, and with it has come the l)Otc]tial nl(ans for It ])(dr,or, It ]nol'( eihi(,Itl and a more hrotherly hHxwnatiuna or World life than the world has eve experienced before. Provided, an(l this is still the Jew's task, the worht ('an be made to understand its real meaning. REFUGEES PROLONG STAY Riga, Sept. 4, (J. T. A.)--The Latvian government has issued an order granting permission to the 1,500 Jewish refugees from Soviet Russia to remain in the country until October 20. Permission to re- main in the country previously granted to these refugees had expired and the government was preparing to repatriate them. The prolonga- tion of their stay was granted as a request of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society. The Red Top Cab Coml)any is responsible for having cut taxicab rates in Seattle nearly in half.
