Per- quoted from it in the New rimes yesterday aroused critical responses from of such organizations American Jewish Con- s, the B'nai B'rith Anti- League and the Conference of American S. John Slawson, former director of the Ameri- Committee, said "It to me how any be he the greatest of can be responsible for Senseless and preposterous ces and still consider a member of the civi- lily of man." and the other spokesmen referred to Col. Lindbergh's assertion that, in the perspective of the past 30 years, the United States lost World War II and never should have gotten into it. The famed flyer contended, in his Journals, that "Much of our Western cul- ture was destroyed" through the loss in the war of the genet- ic heredity formed "through eons of many million lives." Will Maslow, executive director of the AJ Congress characterized that opinion as "charitable gibberish" that "makes no scientific sense whatsoever." But "it does make clear that Mr. Lindbergh still believes in the Nazi philosophy of racial superiority," Mr. Mas- low said. Seymour Graubard, national chairman of the ADL, said it was "frightening" that after a quarter of a century Lindbergh still "accepts some of the most heinous of Nazi racial theories, else how could he prattle about our having lost our genetic he- redity." Col. Lindbergh, the "Lone Eagle," whose solo flight from New York to Paris in 1927 made him an international hero, was strongly isolationist during the years immediately prior to World War II. After visiting Nazi Germany and. inspecting Goering's Luf- twaffe, he went on public speak- ing tours urging the U.S. to stay aloof from the war at a time when Hitler's forces had over- run France and were threaten- ing to invade Britain. In his Journals, Lindbergh maintained that the Roosevelt Administration, pro-British elements and American Jews forced the U.S. into World War II. In a speech he made in Des Moines, Iowa on Sept. 11, 1941, at an "America First" rally, Lindbergh said, "It is not diffi- cult to understand why Jewish people desire the overthrow of Nazi Germany. The persecution they suffered in Germany would be sufficient to make bitter enemies of any race. No person with a sense of the dignity of mankind can condone the persecution the Jewish race suffered in Germany. But no person of honesty and vision can look on their pro-war policy here today without seeing the dangers involved in such a poli- cy both for us and for them." Dr. Slawson observed in a state- ment issued yesterday that if the U.S. had not entered World War II, the Nazis would' have gotten control of the atomic bomb and "there would have been no Western civilization to worry about." Rabbi Roland B. Gittelsohn, president of the CCAR, the Re- form rabbinical organization, asserted that American Jews "need not apologize to be among the first to call the world's attention to the inescap- able moral issue which com- pelled our nation to join forces against Hitler." 22 New Jewish Schools Open Doors for Pupils YORK (JTA) -- Twen- new Jewish day schools, nine at the high school functioning in the and Canada, ac- to information provided 1 Telegraphic Agen- Conserva- sponsors of the American Reform will be represented in School movement for time this school year.
