' '" ""a'l world stands against a defenseless people" and el)pealed ,,tpinion to] lOon(In Noted Chri stians Raise Voices ToHitJew.Ha NEW Y()RK--hl the U. S., press and public joined a united cry of horri- fied outrage this week at iron-fisted Nazi moves to exterminale 700,000 Jews in Germany and to crush 30,000,000 Catholics. In strong language rarely expressed by lmblie persomdities in this coun- try, leading church and public figures condemned the persecution of the Jews in Germ.my its an outrage to the conscience of the civilized worhl. Among those who issued protests were Herbert IIoover, Sinclair Lewis, Nobel Prize Winner; Bishoii William T. Manning of New York; Dr. llarry Emerson Fosdiek; Willi'tm Green, 1)resident of the A. F. of L.; Dr. Edgar De Witt Jones, president Federal Council of the Cinn'ches of Christ in America; Dr. Ilem'y Slone Coffin, president, Union Theologi(:al Seminary; Mrs. Eugene F. Intermann, chairman, New York State Branch, Women's International Leage for Peace and Freedom. The protests were made public by Dr. Samuel McCrea Cavert, gcneral secretary of the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America, who warned that "the situation in Germany should stir all thoughtful people in America to a new alertness and determined opposition to every manifesta- tion of religious "tnd racial antipathy in our midst." Texts of the protest follow: Sinclair Lewis, novelist: "Nothing that Germany has ever' done has aroused such horror or opposition as her present treatment of Jews. We 'ill hope there will be enough protests to make her realize this." Harry Emerson Fosdiek, Riverside Church: "The appalling persecu- tion of tile Jews in Germany is an outrage to the conscience of the civilized world. It is a tragedy if nothing can be done to prevent this cold blooded brutal pogrom. Decent people of all faiths and races joint in protesting the cruel barbarities." Bishop William T. Marm.ing : "Such action its that which is now taking place in Germany is an open defiance of God aud it shame to humanity. It is an amazing and shocking thing that in this dlty in which we are living such crimes can bc permitted. They violate every l)rinciple not only of religion G Racial Issue Crops Up In N.Y.

Dewey admitted that a whispe, ring camp.fign on racial and religious grounds had heon injected into the campaign and asserted that "the, nlan or woman who votes for it catl- didate because of his race or religion, or votes against him for such a rea- SOil, is a disgrace tolAmerican citi- zenship." Gov. Lehman acknowledged the sincerity and courage of Dewey's statement but charged that l)ewey "does not know the nature of the campaign that has been carried on by his Rel)ublican leaders." Mayor I/t Guardia said he resented "with all the bitterness that I can muster any attempt -- whispering, posters, letters or innuendos in this campaign, as in any other, against a candidate's religion, belief or au- cestI'y.

But before proceeding with the conversation I insisted he must come to our spare bedroom and wash up and rest awhile; for he hmked travel-worn. He washed up aml shortly he was returning to my living room. "You sho'uld have rested awMle," I said. The Marti/uts, he answered, never rest.

William Green, president, American Federation of Labor: "i cannot express the deep sense of horror 1 experienced over the treatnlent accorded Jewish people in Germany.

Edgar DeWitt Jones, I)resident, Feder.fl Council of the Churches of Christ in Amcric.t: "The outrageous and inhuman treatment of the Jews in Germany anti tile rising tide of anti-Senfitisna in other palts of the world is heart-rending. It is such its to move hivers (if justice everywhere to register a solemn and imlmssione d protest." Dr. Samuel McCrea Cavert, general secretary, Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. "The shocking assaults upon defenseless arid innocent ,Jews in Germany is a revelation of the unl)elievabh; extremes to which anti-Semitism may go when "u:tificially stimulated by deliberate prol)aganda. The situation in Germany shouhl stir all thoughtful lleolile in America to it new alertness and determined oilposition to every manifesta- tion (if racial and religious antil)athy in our nlidst.

It is not the German people at large who are to be blamed for this action. The blame is squarely up to the political agencies in power. These individuals are taking Germany back four hundred arid fifty years in civilization to Torquemada's expulsion of the Jews from Spain. "They are bringing to Germany not ahme the condemnation of the pul)lie opinion of tim world. These men are building their own condem- nation by mankind for centuries to come. They are destroying every effort of the friends of the German people who have sought to be of aid to them. And I believe I have more than usual right of protest. "I have held unalterably to believe in the great contributions the Ger- man peel)Is have made to civilization in the l)ast and to the necessity for civilization that they be giveu opportunity to t'tke again their 1)lace in the forward march of the worhl. "With these views I labored to reduce the injustices of the tre,ties both before and 'ffter they were signed. I insisted upou saving their people from famine after the arnfistice I have participated over the ye'trs in many official actions in aid to their recovery from war. I had hope(l that recent events might lie the end of the actions by the party in power which endangers the whole world. "It is still my belief that the Germ'ul l)eOllle , if they could express them- selves, would not approve these acts against the Jews. But its they cannot so express themselves, it is the duty of nmn everywhere to express our indig- nation not ahme at the suffering these men are imposing upon all innocent people, but at the blow they are striking at civilization itself." Alfred E. Smith and Thomas E. Dewey, in radio talks, call0d for vigor- ous protests. Smith declared the events in Germany were "it desperate ehlfl- ]c, nge" to the worhl I)ecause it is a question "which goes to |he very founda- tion (lit w]lich we have erected America."

Yes, he replied, the Martians (who know everything) knew all about via dolorosa, knew all about Jesus who had trod this path to crucifixion. "It is most curious," he said, "that while mankind grieves (finely enough) for this one Jew on the via dolorosa 2,000 years ago, it has little mind or heart for the multitude of Jews ou the same road to crucifixion today." "PreciselyI" I said. 'The Martian mind seems clearer on this than the minds of most people on the earth." He Slicks sadly: To think that there are few places ]eft on the earth for Jews! To think there are so few voices to sd)eak against a savagery so unspeakable." All this had be0n discussed in tim Martian counsels aud it had been agreed that Mars must intervene: "In short, if there wits no place for Jews on the car(h, it was the moral duty of the phu)et Mars to take them in. We have come to take the Jews to Mars and give them stumtuary. This is our beneficient purpose." I replied it was beatltiful of the Martians to do this... "But are you come to the earth?" "Well," I replied, "it seems that Orsnn Wells brought you down to destroy this earth. But I wasn't afraid. I felt you couldn't (lo any worse with the earth than we are doing with it. I am really a cour- ageous person." "We have come dowu to do some- thing about the Jews," tie said. "()It?" "Are you, perhaps, acquainted with any Jews?" he asked. "Yes, some of my best friends are Jews," I answered. lie went on to exphdu that the Martians were not at all unfamiliar with the plight of the Jews in the world; they had heard their lameo- tations even at their far distance; their transcosmic te]escol)e had seen Jews huddled in the [)leak no man's land lletween Czechoshivakia and Sndeten; they had seen the multi- tude of Jews driven out of Germany to the borders of Poland.
