New York, Oct. 16 (J. T. A.)--The (luesti(m:tirc sent out by the Jewish Telcgral)]fic Agency ctmcerning the llracticallility of the l)rol)t)sed Na- l,i(mal Jewish Community (hcst in the United St', is I)cing I)rtmdly discussed in Jewish circles. The I)oint of disl)ut( in the questi(m, "What is to I)e included in the pro- l)osed chest?" l)ifference tlf opinion is ex1)re.ssed , particularly with regard to l'alestine. 1Latllli Mm'ris S. lmz'u'on, of the Baltimore llebrew Congreg'dSon, says, "I consider the. estalllishmeut of a national chest for all Jewish charitMfle ,rod e(lueational activi- ties to be the tinest and most practic- al ate I) forw'rd. It deserves the sup- port of all American Jewry. Y(lu ask me how I thinl the Board should I)e elected, lerhal)s it good l)l'm would be to h'tve e.very tlgcn(y re])r(s(qlted in the Chest send delegates in I)rn- llortion to its size and I)udget to 't meeting at which from among those rel)resented , a governing board might I)e elected whi(.h shouhl have charge also of the distrit)ution of funds. I ant not at all sure that Palestine should I)e included in such a chest. I am, as you know, deeply interested in the Zionist movement and in the restoration of Palestine and ] be- lieve the question nf alh)cating flmds in this direction m'y, I)ecause of differences of opinion on this subject, prove detrimental to both causes. The Palestine appeal can stand on its own feet." Favor Annual Drive "1 am heartily in favor of a united effort," states Mr. Nat Stone of the Boston Store, Milwaukee, "wherein all Jewry will take part in assemhling its forces towards the conclusion of one fund. This should be an annual affair, and under no cir(.umstanees, other causes should be permitted to interfere or ereate additional efforlls. This should operate along the line of our Federated Charities, of which we have now, many, and works so splendidly. I sincerely trust you will advocate this, as I am alsu pro- meting the thought through this part of the country, ahmg the same lines." "I fear," says 1Lat)bi Max Heller, of the Congregation Teml)le Sinai, New Orleans, "that the phm for a mtinnal chest, (.overing our domestic and foreign charities, is too gigantic to lie l)rael,iealrle and inq)lie.s, to my fe, eling, an extreme concentration which may i)rnve, dangerous. I am, at all times, in favor of broadening our phihmthrol)y so as to inchuh: education. Palestine, too, is an integral element in any COml)le.te plan of permanent uphuihling. 'rhel nmthods for electing otfieers and dis-: tributin funds could be agreed upon easily enough. The paramount ques- tion would be whether the eeononlical savings and other material adwmt- ages would eounterbahmce the in- evitable loss of personal and active particip'tion."
