N00paper Of Pa=.o Oct. 2, 1925 Northwest Jewry." | DESTINY REALIZED (Continued from Page 5) when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came upon then], and the skin covered them above; but there was no breath in them." The sinews, the flesh upon the bones and the skin fitly represent the brains, the money, and the men to accomplish the work. The cry amongst the Jews for the past few years has been the lack of money and the lack of men for the re- building of Palestine. They are now collecting enormous sums of money, interesting many men, and taking great numbers back to Pal- estine. It will be observed that compar- atively few of these Jews who are returning to Palestine are exercis- ing real faith in the promises of God. It was because of their un- belief in God's promises that they were cast away; and now we ob- serve that they are being returned to Palestine largely in unbelief. They have the organization. They have the money and the brains and the land, and are moving on with their work; but there is something lacking yet. And what is that? Note now the words of the Pro- phet, who spoke concerning the val- ley o[ dry bones: "Then said he unto me, Prophesy of the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God, Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I pro- phesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; behold they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost; we are cut off for our parts." The word "wind" here is from the Hebrew word "ruach" trans- lated breath or spirit of life. What the Jews must now have is the spirit of the Lord. It may be expected before many years that the Lord will bring to life the faithful Jews of old, Abra- ham, Isaac and Jacob, and the holy prophets; and then the peoples re- gathered to Palestine will begin to understand that God is fulfilling His promises, giving the land to Abraham and to his seed after him and that He is putting in opera- tion His promises to bless all the families of the earth. Note the fur- ther words of the Prophet, who prophesies concerning the dry bones as follows: "Then he said unto me, Son of man. these bones are the whole house of Israel; be- hold they say, Our bones are dried and our hope is lost; we are cut off from our parts. Therefore pro- phesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, O my: people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. "And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, and shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live; and I shall place you in your own land; then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord." Ezek. 37:11-14. God promises that when His peo- ple are returned to Palestine and established He will make a New Covenant with them. The prophet Jeremiah says in 31:31-34: "Be- hold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new cov- enant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah; not ac- cording to the covenant that I made with their fathers, in the day that I took them by the hand, to bring them out of the land oT Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: but this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel: After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his bro- ther, saying Know the Lord, for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord, for I will for- Queen Anne (North) Close in, Good car service, Fine view, Grade and High School, All new homes----classy, Good neighbors (all white), Big RE- SALE VALUE.

If it be true that the Jew applauds their prowess as a "racial achievement," what a grasping egotism has the Jew been forced to assume to over- come his apologetic defensive at- titude towards non-Jewish people and standards. As if the triumphs of Abrahams and Lenglen were in any important measure dependent on the fact that the victors were Jews. Had they been Christians, Mohammedans or pagans, their pe- culiar skill alone would have brought them victory. All of which serves to point out the common failing of the Jew of acclaiming a hero and then trying to find out if he has any Jewisl connections. Poland still continues her sui- cidal policy of exterminating some 4,000,000 of her Jewish subjects. In 1492, Spain expelled her Jewisl subjects--and thereby seriously im- perilled her economic strength. Polish "statesmen" might do wel: to read Spanish history. Dr. Arthur Ruppin's proposed $50,000,000 loan for the develop- ment of Palestinian agriculture give their iniquity, and I will re- member their sin no more." Many will inquire, if the Jews could not keep their first covenant why would God make a New Cov- enant with them, and what assur- ance can we have that they will be able to benefit by the New Coven- ant? A proper answer to this ques- tion shows a true relationship be- tween Christians and Jews. It shows that the first covenant could not be kept because of the imperfection of the mediator Moses, and because the people must first be redeemed. The New Covenant will have a mediator that is perfect and able to minister the long desired blessings to the peo- ple. This Mediator of the New Covenant is the Messiah. When the New Covenant is inaugurated, there will be no more prejudice existing between Jews and Chris- tians. The prejudice existing be- tween Jews and Christians has been on account of ignorance. True Christians should have the great- est interest in the Jew, not to try to make of him a Christian, but to try to make him understand his and industry is now being exam- ined. The prospects indicate that if sufficient assets can be found as a pledge for the loan, Dr. Ruppin's idea will become a reality. How sensible an idea! Merely to depend on the capricious current .assets of the Kerren Hayesod or the Jewish National Fund for a capital invest-i sent of enduring value is at best i a piecemeal and precarious plan of action. A carefully administered capital fund should hasten the day of a developed and self-sustaining Palestine. The Comnlunity Fund drive is announced for the early part of Oc- tober. All of which leads us to re- flect that the Jewish people have not utilized the community chest idea in planning their educational and philanthropic budgets. It is submitted that all the advantages of economy and convenience advo- cated for Seattle's Community Fund might well be utilized by the Jewish people of each city in plan- ning their budgets ahead, so that when a Jewish organization appeals for funds, it may make its appeal not to the Jewish people individ- ually, but to the Jewish Commun- ity Chest. MENORAH NEWS The Menorah year has started! At a meeting of the executive board held recently, a number of plans were formulated and action com- menced. The date of the opening meeting of the year will be announced later. At that meeting, President Joseph Cohen will outline the year's pro- gram, and announce committee ap- pointments. A report on the Far Western Menorah Conference, held in June, 1925, will also be given. The plans include the regular monthly meetings and mixers, three Inner Circles, a coast essay contest, a coast play contest, a coast league debate, a Menorah HEILIG THEATRE 3rd and Madison "The Tower of Lies" Lou Chancy - Norms Shearer PALACE HIP .ow WILL KING in PLAYING "High Cost of Loving" Also Hermie Kings Super-Soloists vodvil and other events to be an- nounced in subsequent issues of the Transcript. Watch for the date of the first meeting! GERBER SCHOLARSHIP FUND At the Menorah banquet, held in June, 1925, Mr. Maurice Gerber, of Seattle, contributed $1,000 to the Menorah Society, to be distributed as scholarships over a period of years. The details and rules gov- erning the award of the scholar- ships are nearly completed. Appli- cation for this year's award, how- ever, may now be made. Any Jew- ish member of the Menorah Soci- ety attending the University may mail his or her application in care of Dr. Samuel Koch, Temple Cen- ter, Seattle. ALUMNI BULLETIN The Alumni Menorah Society of the University of Washington is one of the very few groups of-its kind in the United States. Its ex- pressed purpose is to aid the under- graduate society solve its various problems and to co-operate in every way possible towards enlarging the sphere of influence of the Menorah movement. Especially effective co-operation is promised this year by the Alum- ni, according to President Max Sil- ver. The factor to be stressed this year will be more joint meetings of the undergraduates and Alumni groups. Officers for the coming year are: President, Max Silver; Vice-Presi- dent Leo Weisfield; Treasurer Harry Neer; Secretary, Ellen Emanuel. Hadassah Augurs Well For a Record Year The earnestness with which Ha- dassah Chapters are taking up their duties for the coming year, augurs well for a record year of accom- plishment. Although activities us- ually do not get into full swing un- til after the Holy Days, many Chap- ters have already held first open- ing meetings of the season and out- lined their programs for the year's work. During the months of Octo- ber, November and December Chapters will concentrate on mem- bership campaigns. Simultaneously some Chapters will conduct fund- raising activities. Joint campaigns with the Keren Hayesod are being arranged in many cities throughout the country. In Cleveland and Rochester, where joint campaigns are well under way, Hadassah women are playing an important role. A joint drive, in which Ha- dassah will participate actively will take place soon in Baltimore. Hadassah's budget for the Ha- dassah Medical Organization for the year 1925-26, as fixed at the last convention, is $330,000, more than twice the amount of last year's bud- get. Although Hadassah's respons- ibility this year is greater than ever before, Hadassah Chapters ex- pect to meet their pledge to Pales- tine.

The Last Word on the Sweet Side of Life CHOCOLATES Ardelle New York (J. T. A.)--A request to bar the eight Hungarian dele- gates to the Interparliamentary Conference which is to take place in Washington was made by the Pederation of Hungarian Jews in America, on the ground that these delegates have been guilty of sup- pressing free speech, inciting po- groms and other violence. The letter addressed to Secretary of State Kellogg, signed by Samuel Buchler, president of the federa- tion, stated: TO BAR HUNGARIAN DELEGATES GUILTY OF INCITING POGROMS Berlin (J. T. A.)--Germany's "Fiery Cross" episode has practi- cally come to an end with the de- portation of Gotthard Strosehein, former Lutheran minister and na- turalized American citizen, one of the founders of the "Knights of the Fiery Cross," an order similar to the Ku Klux Klan. Given six days to leave the country, he departed for Warsaw. He plans to return to America. Otto Stroschein, father of Gotthard, proved his German cit- izenship and was released.
