Sidney Hollander, president of the Council, and William J. Shroder, chairman of the Board, presented reports on recent war chest develop- ments, progress on the Council's efforts for a unified civic-protective program and prospects for the re- constitution of the United Jewish Appeal in 1943.

The bulk of the funds was spent by overseas and Palestine agencies which expended a total of $17,650,- 424, of which about $7,000,000 was spent in Palestine, $6,000,000 in other countries abroad and $4,000,- 000 for immigration services both abroad and in the United States. Of the $4,598,765 spent in this country by the national agencies, $1,637,810 was used for civic pro- tective activities and $1,333,584 for health and welfare requirements.

The following letter from Lt. Col. Attebery was dated Sept. 22, and was received by THE TRANSCRIPT last week. This is a brief note from Australia to inform you, that we have just completed a most successful observance of the Jewish New Year and the Fast of Atonement. In view of the fact that there was no Jewish Chaplain in our division and no rabbi within many hundreds of miles, we had to rely upon lay leadership and such assistance as the division chaplain could give. The lay leadership was furnished by Lieutenant Irving All of Portland, Oregon, a Lieutenant Kahn of New York City, and a Doctor Brenner, a Polish refugee since the middle of the Polish war. You will be interested to know  that Judaism again proved its vi- tality, both by the splendid attend- ance given by the Jewish men in this Division and area and by the fine manner in which lay leader- ship was so intelligently accepted. In this group of approximately 250 Jewish men were young men from all over the United States. They were a fine looking bunch of men and participated in these services with a deep sincerity. Synagogue Anzac Hall I was extremely happy in the fact that I had in my library of phono- graph records the great music of the Synagogue through these past twenty centuries. The music was especially appropriate for the Day of Atonement. You may be interested to know where the services were held. Our synagogue for the occasion was an Anzac Hall (returned soldiers' club house). On the two days that the Anzac hall was not available, we used a Methodist church four )locks away, which was the church ;tructure closest at hand. The com- "aunity in which we are now locat- ed, believe it or not, is a city in which there are less than a half dozen Jews and thus no synagogue.

Seattle Boy Helps Please convey to the Jewish community in Seattle our very best wishes and let them know that the Jewish boys are being well cared for by regular services of their own every Sunday morning at the hour of church call. Lieutenant Manton J. Spear, so well known in Seattle, has been ac- tive in helping to organize and carry on the religious work among our Jewish men. I will just take a moment to say that we are enjoying Australia tre- mendously. The country is very beautiful and the people have a glorious spirit to match the beauty of their country. It would have been impossible for any country to have been more hospitable to us or more generous in its friendship. Asks To Be Remembered Remember me to all my friends in Seattle, and let's carry on the fight with a fury until the last shackle of enslaved men is broken. I trust that Seattle is fully awake to the issues of this hour and that as Jews and Christians together we will be on the enemy's track till the last barbarian has either bitten the dust or held up his hands in de- cisive surrender. Do your best in THE TRANSCRIPT to keep a stick of dynamite under the people's con- science. With every kind wish for the progress of THE TRANSCRIPT and with deepest appreciation of what my dear friends in the Jewish com- munity in Seattle have done for me and for Grace Church, I say good- bye for today.--E.

Mexicans Score Nazi Terrorism MEXICO CITY (JTA)--Nazi ter- ror against the Jews and other ci- vilians in occupied Europe, was con- demned here at the closing session of the conference called by leading Mexican liberal organizations to protest against Nazi atrocities. The conference also assailed the Nazi racial theories and asked that the "criminals" responsible for the mass-murders of innocent people be punished after the war. MRS. ROSENBERG APPOINTED WASHINGTON -- (J.P.S.) -- The post of New York regional director of the War Manpower Commission has been assigned to Mrs. Anna M. Rosenberg, regional head of the Social Security Board. Hebrew Language For Propaganda JERUSALEM--(J.T.A.) --A ship- ment of American propaganda lit- erature in the Hebrew language arrived here for distribution among the Jewish population. The He- brew press to which the American Consulate dispatched the first cop- ies of the various publications re- ceived the material with wa,n greetings. Some editors, however, point out that the style in which the propaganda is written is not l exactly the style now used by the press in Palestine. GENEVA (JPS) -- Baptized Jews have been permitted by the Slo- vakian government to form sepa- rate communities and live apart from the other Jews, it is reported.
