"The Home Newspaper Of Pacific Northwest Jewry." tion came as a surprise to those who expected the Republicans New York to follow the policies of the National Convention Cleveland. It was due to the efforts of Joseph Levenson, a Jewish polit- ical leader of New York, that the P, epublican convention adopted the anti-Klan plank. It adopted a platform condemning every movement that aims to undermine the American ideals of po- litical and religious liberty, incidentally naming the Ku Klux Klan. Commenting upon this course of action, The Day, an inde- pendent newspaper with Democratic leanings, in a recent edi- torial, says: "This action is commendable. The stand is courageous and it was not easy to get the party to commit itself so clearly. There were many members of the Platform Committee who wanted to maintain the policy of President Coolidge and remain silent on this issue. The Committee was almost equally divided, and the plank was adopted with the majority of only a single vote. But when the platform was reported to the Convention it was adopt- ed in a manner that left no doubt as to the correctness of Joseph Levenson&apos;s attitude. "The platform contains also many other liberal planks. One of them is an endorsement of the proposed amendment to the Constitution of the United States, that aims to abolish child labor in America. The liberalism of the platform is evidently a maneuver to weaken the Democrats and particularly the candi- dacy of Governor AI Smith, against whom the Republican Con- vention nominated the young Theodore Roosevelt. The candi- date nominated did not show any particular abilities in his short political career, but he bears a brilliant name, respected by millions of people." rnDn Origin of -"The assertion of a German friend of the Jews that Anti- anti-Semitism was originated in France may prove Semitism to be correct," says The Jewish Morning Journal in a recent editorial. "It would also be easy to prove that anti-Semitism originated in Spain, Rome, or even Egypt. If an anti-Semite should make a thorough study of the history of his fatherland, he may be able to prove that the speak- er at the meeting of the society to conduct anti-Semitism is un- just, and that Germany cannot completely deny the doublful honor of being the cradle of modern anti-Semitism. ell at vol. i.

Vienna, ()ct. 16 (J. T. A.)--The governlnents of the variotls co(in- tries anti the Le.llglle of Nations were Ill'ged to en(lol's( an iliternatiolla] "Anti-Selnitism originated made to prove the particular contribution of a certain country, it is not difficult to prove that ahnost any country had a part in the original development of that idea. This, however, is not a proper method of judging the attitude of any people towards Jews, and the responsibility of any nation for .lewish sufferings ,n its own land or elsewhere. If the hatred of the Jews in its modern political form was not born in Gernlany, it: was certainly developed there, and may be said It) have been manufactured lhere for export to countries of Easlern Europe, particularly Russia, where Jews suffered a great deal. "The anti-Semitic idea, it is true, was a mere by-product of the thoughts and theories lhat (;ermany exported in our days to olher countries of the world. The elder l,iebknecht said that anti-Semitism was 1lie socialism of the fools, nleaning that only foolish people combat the Jewish capilalists, though lhe strug- gle should be carried on againsl capitalism generally. But the socialism of the wise nlan was also exported. Karl Marx is the (led of the Bolsheviki and l,enin was his Prophet. The funda- mental idea of Socialism did not originate in (;ermany. French and British thinkers evolved these ideas before the (;erman Jews, l,aSalle and Marx, systemalized them in the present form and spread them throughcmt the world. Not in Moscow alone, but even in Paris and in l,ondon, presenl-day Socialism is con- sidered a (;erman product. "Both ideas brought the worst resuhs in the undeveloped Eastern counlries, where the influence of the German spirit al- ways predominaled. In (;ertnany anti-Semitism prevenled Jews from becoming army officers. In Russia, it caused special legislation directed against Jews, pogroms, and, indireclly, wholesale butchery in Ukrainia. "it is easy to prove that Socialism originated in l"rance, but ii was not exported to olher countries. France atoned for the anti-Semitism of the Dreyfus period, and there is less anti- Semi((sin now in official France than in any other Western Euro- pean country. France, in this respect, is a great deal above Germany. It does not matter, for practical purposes, where an idea first originated. The anti-Semitism of our time is more a German than a French product." NON Books for In line with the aim of making the Library of the Hebrew Hebrew University in Jerusalem the greatest as- University semblage of books of Jewish interest in the world, an appeal has been issued by the Zionist Organiza- tion of America from its headquarters, 114-5th Ave. New York, for contributions of books to this Library. Dr. Simeon Bernstein, Editor of Dos Yiddische Folk, has been desig- nated as custodian of these books until their transshipment to Palestine. The Hebrew University Library already possesses about 80,000 volumes and recently acquired the famous Goldziher Library with its invaluable collection of Arabic and Hebrew i bookg and periodical on oriental literature. A permanent building for the Library is soon to be erected with the funds of the David: Wolfsohn Bequest. The Zionist Oragnization of America has already shipped to Palestine 12 cases of books donated by individuals and organiza- tions all over the country. The University of California con- tributed several hundred valuable volumes. The appeal for additional gifts points to the fact that many of the previous donors sent, together with the books, the sums necessary to cover the expenses of shipment.
