What Chamberlain Offers Prime Minister Chamberlain pro- poses to give to Jewish refugees: (1) British Guiana: This colony has an area of over 89,000 squ're miles withe population of approx- imately 400,000, including 130,000 East Indians and 10,000 natives. There are over 77,000 square miles of forest and 7,500 square miles of undeveloped hind. It is suitable for the cultivation of sugar cane, cotton, rice, coffee and cocoanuts. The land is rich in minerals, includ- ing bauxite (aluminum ore), dia- monds, and gold. It is the habi- tat of the constricting antteonda snake, the bushmaster and the caiman--all poisonous. Commu- nication and transportation are difficult. (2) Tanganyika: The area of this colony is 366,632 square miles, and the population is approximarely 5,000,000, which includes about '6,000 Europeans. The land is crowded with wild animals and poisonous insects. CMef indus- tries are cotton raising, coffee growing, and sisal raising. (3) Kenya: Its area is 220,000 square miles and its population is approx- imarely 3,000,000, of which about 18,000 are Europeans. The cli- mate of the country is somewhat like that of California, and experts claim that enough cotton can be grown there to make the British textile industry independent of American supply. However, the area best suited for the raising of cotton is at present occupied by roving tribes, and is thronged with wild animals. Kenya is said to be the healthiest colony in Africa for wbite men. (4) Northern Rhodesia: Its area is 288,000 square miles, with a population of 1,500,000, of whom 10,000 are Europeans. The coun- try is covered with thin forest, and is suitable for grazing and farming. It is also rich in minerals. (5) Nyasaland: Its area is about 48,000 square miles, with a popu- lation of aptiroximately 1,500,000. Tea-raising is the only profitable enterprise. Chief Rabbi Urges World Jewry To Buttress Heroes Of Palestine JERUSALEM (WNS)--A summons to the Jews of the world to give generously to Palestine upbuilding was sounded this week by Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog in a proclamation to the Jews of the world in- augurating the 1939 campaign of the Keren Hayesod (Palestine Foun- dation Fund). Chief Rabbi Herzog added: "Our most fervent desire has always been for peaceful relations with our Arab neighbors. Chief Rabbi Herzog declared that "our sons are building the land with one hand and holding a weapon in the other. They are con- structing roads and strongholds for the protection of lives and bases of the house of Israel in the land of our hopes. "They are devoting their lives as emissaries for the salvation of the entire people, not only for self-defense, because the soul of the whole people permeates the upbuilding of the land. "A sacred duty reposes on every Jew in this great and awful mo- ment in order to buttress the efforts of the Yishuv. "Wherever they be, they must defend the Yishuv, for this is the sole haven of refuge throughout the world remaining for our weary, harried brethren." Nobel Peace Prize Goes To Anti-Nazi For Third Time OSLO, Norway (W N S) -- The Nansen International office for Refugees at Geneva this week was awarded the 1938 Nobel Peace Prize. The Nansen Office has been carrying on refugee work since 1922. Recently it was merged with the League of Nations High Com- mission for German Refugees. This is the third consecutive year in which the peace prize was awarded to an anti-Nazi instru- ment. In 1936 it went ot the late Carl yon Ossietzky, Hitler foe. Last year it was awarded to Vis- count Cecil, noted opponent of anti-Semitism.

N. S.)--The Bri- tish government is prepared to lease at least 10,000 square miles of terr- itory in British Gains, on the north coast of South America, to provide a refuge for persecuted German Jews and is also ready to cooperate in set- fling smaller numbers of Jews in Tanganyika, a former German co- lony now under mandate to England, as well as in Northern Rhodesia, Nyasaland and Kenya, crown colo- nies in Africa, Prime Minister Cham- berlain declared this week. Chambcrlain's announcement is .said to be an outcome of a compre- hensive l)lan worked out I)y Joseph P. Kennedy, United States ambas- sador, and laid before the British cabinet last week. Tanganyika, is on the eastern coast of Africa, between the Bel- gian Congo, Mozambique (Portu- guese East Africa) and Kenya. Chamberlain m-tde it plain that in all these projccts the cost of pre- paring the land aud settling refugees when the land is available would be the responsibility of private refugee organizations. Cost was estimate at $150,000,000. The proposals of Prime Minister Chambez'lain are unworkahle for five reasons, observers said: (1) The colonies which he offers for Jewish settlement are wilder- nesses which Europeans have for decades refused to colonize. (2) His proposal to finance the settlement of the Jews with $150,000,- 000, to be raised largely among American Jews is ridiculously inade- quate for the project. Furthermore, it would take much time to raise this while German Jewry's terrible plight is an emergency requiring immediate measures. (3). The deveh)pment of these colonies for suitable human habita- tion must cover--and there are strong doubts as to whether it can be done at all--a period of time far too long in view of the urgency of the refugee problem. (4). Middle and working-class Jews cannot be expected to adjust them- selves to the life offered by these trackless countries. (5) The solution does not preclude once and for all the recurrence of similar outrages. The phm in no way punishes Germany for Germany's crime, but actually shifts the burden of the crime to the shoulders of the Jews, who will be made to suffer un- told hardships should the plan be executed. NEWSFACTS : Chamberlain's plan must be construed in the light of his other relations to Nazi Germany. Chamberlain would rather not adopt a vigorous stand in opl)osition to to the Reich since his whole foreign policy is based on Nazi "appease- ment," foreign correspondents re- port. Abe Pinkus Tells Hitler, "Stop Fooling" CLEVELAND (W N S)  "Stop bluffing" and "get serious" was the message cabled to Adolf Hitler this week by Abe Pinckus, Cleve- land's Jewish one-man peace ad- vocate who specializes in tele- phoning government heads all over the world to tell them how to settle international problems amicably. Pinckus once actually got Hitler on the transatlantic telephone and heard the Fuehrer say"hello" after which he was switched to a subordinate. In his cable, Pinckus said: "Of all beasts, man seem to be most forgetful. Other animals re- member not to return to things which have caused them pain and sorrow. Germany was licked in 1918 with more resources than you have now." Mountain Is Dedicated To Ochs CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WNS)-- Lookout Mountain overloolciug tMs city where the late Adolph S.
