PAGE EIGHT THE TRANSCRIPT NOVEMBER 2, 1942 Palestine Only Haven, Declares Mrs. Silverman Mrs. Archibald Silverman, of Providence, R. I., former national vice-president of Hadassah and the American Jewish Congress, dra- matically portrayed the homeless- ness of the Jew today in an address before a joint meeting sponsored by the Seattle Zionist District and Ha- dassah at the Talmud Torah last Tuesday evening. "I did not wait for England to give me permission to work for Palestine." Mrs. Silverman said, at the meeting, which observed the 25th year of the Balfour Declara- tion. "I have been an active Zionist for 35 years." Palestine Only Refuge "Every high government official to whom I've spoken, says that there is no other place for the Jews of the world where they may be able to go, but Palestine. The only way to have an open door in Pales- tine is to come to the Peace Confer- ence and say 'we have the land, here it is, and here we are.' We can buy land in Palestine and are con- tinuing to buy land. "In Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Cen- tral America and every land that I have visited, I have found the Jew hungering for Palestine, with the desire to colonize there. We must prepare for the peace -- we must buy more land in Palestine. Bombs Teach Lesson "The Jews in England are giving to Palestine as they've never given before. It is unfortunate that bombs have to teach us the lesson that we must prepare a place for our chil- dren. Must we in America wait? I hope not!" Rabbi Jacob Cohn, Educational Director of the Talmud Torah, briefly reviewed the history of Eng- land's policy in Palestine since the Balfour Declaration. Mrs. Samuel Levinson, president of Hadassah, presided. The speakers were introduced by Sol Esfeld. BANQUET (Continued from Page 1) frantically organized a committee of women to sponsor an affair, the proceeds of which would go to aid the unfortunate youngsters. Raise $1,000 or More Next Sunday evening in the Tal- mud Torah Auditorium, a capacity crowd will gather around banquet tables. Every cent of the $2.50 each diner paid--S1,000 or more-will be forwarded to New York. The women on Mrs. Luban's com- mittee donated and will prepare all the food. Officials of the Talmud Torah made the auditorium avail- able without cost. A sympathetic community enthusiastically re- sponded by buying tickets at a rate which made the women fear at- tendance would tax the hall's capacity. The banquet, which is scheduled to start at 6 p. m., will be conclud- ed by 9:30 p. m., so that those who desire may attend the community- wide dance sponsored by the Coun- cil of Jewish Women at Temple Center. Rabbi Levine Speaker Rabbi Raphael Levine will be the principal speaker at the banquet. The other rabbis of the community will be guests of honor. The committee of women in charge includes Mrs. Myer Aron- son, co-chairman; Mrs. Abe Nelson hostess chairman; Mrs. L. Meltzer ticket chairman; Mrs. N. Anches treasurer; Mrs. M. Genauer, public- ity chairman; Mrs. S. Boguch, re- ceptionist, and Mrs. Saul Porush. In addition, more than 50 women have volunteered to serve the din- ner. GERSHWIN HONORED NEW YORK (JPS) -- A unique honor to the memory of George Gershwin, who died in 1937, was paid by Arturo Toscanini when he opened his season with the NBC Symphony Orchestra Sunday by in- cluding "Rhapsody in Blue" on the program as among the greatest music written by Americans. This will be the first time that Toscanini has played the favorite composition of the late Jewish composer. - I Refugee Rel000000ys Debt CHILDREN (Continued from Page 1) To His Adopted Land ,he children in homes of private families, according to the statement. MILLIONS WILL DIE (Continued from Page 2) leave his house after a certain hour, to buy his specially reduced rations at hours and places other than those prescribed by the police. In ad- dition, the last remnants of his earthly possessions were taken from him: Money not kept in the bank (on blocked accounts!), jewelry, silver, gold (tooth-fillings graceful- ly exempted!), any article of spe- cial value, furs, woolen things, lin- fen, cutlery and similar household goods exceeding a certain number or quanitty. Real Persecution Begins Meanwhile Poland had been over- run and the real persecution of the Jews, the large scale persecution, not against some hundred thousand but against several million, had be- gun. You have heard the words: "Ghet- to of Warsaw"--"Ghetto of Riga"-- "Transport to Lubin," but do you know what they mean? The Ghetto walls in Poland hide the most hideous crimes ever com- mitted by man's brutality. Slow death for millions by hunger, filth and disease; sometimes quick death by shooting or hanging; slave labor in barracks for those who are still able to work, especially for boys and girls from twelve years up- wards who have been taken away from their parents and are not al- lowed to write to them; a piece of black bread and a watery soup their only nourishment. The Germans are in no way ashamed of the word slave labor. I have seen postcards written from such a camp which has the officials address: "Zwang- ! sarbeitslager No.-- in ." All this is beyond description. Use your imagination, please. Think of the half-forgotten incident of 1938, remember what I told you of the "facts behind the facts." There are still Jews left who might escape slave labor or death by starvation--the only alterna- tives for Jews under Hitler. So the yellow badge was introduced. Now you can catch the Jew wher- ever he may be, in the street or at home. The yellow badge must be borne not only if the Jew leaves his house but also if he opens the door of his flat or if he crosses the inner courtyard of an apart- ment house. It must be borne by men, wom- en and children from six years up. It is now borne by the Jews in Poland, "Greater Germany," Hol- land, Belgium and occupied France. With the exception of Denmark and some slight alterations or modifications here and there, all the anti-Jewish laws and regula- tions of Greater Germany are now in force in all the German-oc- cupied countries of Europe, and they have been imitated by the German-controlled Governments of Rumania, Bulgaria, Slovakia and Croatia. There are--until now--two curi- ous exceptions: Hungary and Italy. They have, of course, their anti- Jewish legislation, which makes life difficult and humiliating enough for the Jews of these coun- tries.

He is believed to be the first refugee serviceman to be decorated since Pearl Harbor. The story of Schellenberg's brav- ery under fire is told by the Jew- ish Welfare Board in its latest com- pilation of Jewish heroes render- ing distinguished service to their country. The 26-year-old sergeant was decorated because, with other vol- unteers in New Guinea, he entered an ammunition dump to remove explosives when they were threat- ened by a grass-fire. To his sister !in Brooklyn, Schellenberg, a na- tive of South Germany, wrote: "I'm tickled to death I got into : action." Staff Sergeant Joseph Locker, New Brighton, Pa., has been cited for valor under fire during the i Jap attack on Pearl Harbor. Killed In Action The latest list of those killed in action includes Lt. Jacques Sa- phier, U. S. N. R. Medical Corps, 27, Brooklyn, killed in action while i attending to the wounded directly behind the front lines at Guadal- canal in the Solomon Islands; Pi- lot Officer Seymour Schatzberg, New York, who enlisted in the R. A. F. and met his death during air operations on September 19 near Kent, England; Radioman Joseph Davis, U. S. N., Brooklyn, who died when the American ship on !which he was Operator Chief was torpedoed by the enemy, and Meyer Kashkin, New York, Mer- chant Marine quartermaster, killed when his ship was sunk in the Caribbean Sea near Aruba. Ra- dioman Jake Sachter, Portland, Ore., Naval Air Corps, has been reported missing in action "some- where in the Atlantic." To those killed in the line of duty were added the names of Lt Robert Mariam, Los Angeles, killed in an air crash at Dale Mabry Field, Florida; Second Lt. Lewis H. Cohn, 22, New killed in the crash of a Barksdale Field bomber near Vinton, Calif., and Lt. David H. Kaufman, 27, Army Signal Corps, who died in the crash of a training plane off the coast of England while work- ing with the R. A. F. in electronics. FINED BY JAPAN GENEVA (JPS) -- Twenty Jew- ish capitalists in Japan have been fined 1,000,000 yens each, according to an announcement by the Tokyo radio. The fines, whose cause is not stated, will be devoted to Japanese charities. of children will be selected under standards established by the Chil- dren's Bureau of the United States Department of Labor. In refusing to confirm the figure of 5,000 children which Vichy an- nounced would be permitted to go to America, Acting Secretary Welles stated however that the sug- gested figure of 1,000 is inaccurate. "Every step possible is being taken in accordance with immigra- tion laws to bring refugee children from France to this country," Mr. Welles said. "Every citizen of the United States views with the ut- most sympathy the desperate situa- tion of the unfortunate children left destitute in France by the deporta- tion of their parents to Germany. The United States government has already protested vigorously against the deportations." The estimated cost of transferring 1,000 children is approximately $1,- 000,000 or $1,000 per child. It is esti- mated that there are about 8,000 Jewish children in France today whose parents have been delivered to the Nazis. Discussions are under way with other western hemisphere countries for admission of some of the children. BECOMES SOVIET GENERAL KUIBYSHEV (JPS)--Among the 29 newly-appointed Russian gen- erals is Moisei Levin, who has be- come a general in the Russian Air Force. Livian Government opposes the re- cent bill introduced in the Chamber of Deputies which would bar the admission o{ Jews to that country, it was made known through the Inter-American Jewish Council. The bill was introduced by pro- Nazi elements in order to embar- rass the Government. It is not like- ly that it will be passed by the Sen- ate and, in any event, will be ve- toed by the President of Bolivia, the council was assured. Anti'American Speeches Given BUENOS AIRES (JTA) -- Anti- American and anti-Jewish speeches were delivered here at a mass- meeting arranged by the pro-Axis Nationalist Youth Alliance. The meeting was attended by more than 18,000 people. General Juan Bau- tista Molina, an Alliance leader, was among the speakers who at- tacked the Jews and the United States. RETURN TO CITIES GENEVA (JPS) -- The Jews of i Kobe Yokohama and other im- i portant Japanese cities who were ;evacuated soon after the outbreak of the war have been permitted by the Japanese government to return to their homes, it is reported here. of the Racketeer Bosses Work and Vole for OALLAHAN IN PERSON KIRO Friday, 11 P.
