THE WISCONSIN JEWISH CHRONICLE July 10, 1936. PLAN DRAMATIC CHORUS AT THE JEWISH CENTER Discontinue Open Forum Series in Fall Program; Arrange Co-operative Plan with Milwaukee Open Forum Group Summer doldrums may have slackened activity at the Center somewhat, but that does not mean that there has been a lessening of planning for the coming season. First among the new features contemplated for the fall program is a dramatic chorus under the direction of Ben Pollack, the musical director who was so successful with the folklore revue. Rehearsals will begin Oct. 7 and continue thereafter every Wednesday evening. Included in the proposed program will be Hebrew, Yiddish and English songs, and it is planned that several concerts will be given after the group has had sufficient training. The chorus will be open free to members; a nominal charge will be made to non-members. Abandon Open Forum One of the major changes in Center policy will be the discontinuance of the open forum lectures. In its place a co-operative plan is being arranged with the Milwaukee Open Forum whereby Center members will be admitted free to Forum lectures. Continuing with its program of presenting authorities in stimulating lectures, the Center will offer a series of talks on world problems by Rabbi Charles E. Shulman of Chicago. His wife, Avis Clamitz Shulman, who is also well known as a writer and lecturer, will deliver a series of lectures on current trends in literature. Dr. Michael aKsak, whose lectures proved so popular last season will continue with his course in psychology. Details of the proposed lectures will be announced within several weeks. RASKIN ETCHINGS ARE PRESENTED AS GIFT The Center was recently the recipient of three beautiful etchings by Saul Raskin, the New York artist whose work aroused so much favorable comment when displayed during fifth anniversary week. Depicting the prophets Abraham, Malachi and Isaiah, the etchings are excellent examples of Raskin's artistry and will be valued additions to the art room's collection. The Center takes this opportunity to thank Max Karger, David Karger, Walter Frank, Harry Kovenock and Lee Lerner, who contributed toward the purchase of the etchings. COFFEE SHOP ATTRACTS PATRONS DURING HEAT Hot weather delicacies are being featured on the Coffee Shop menu these days. Prepared by a staff of experts, the meals served in the popular restaurant are attracting a wider circle of patrons. DOTS AND DASHES Kiddies are finding the Center pool an ideal spot to cool themselves during these hot days. Elders, too, have come flocking to the Center in search of relief from the sun's scorching rays, although there are some who defy old Sol's fury by "ultra-violet-raying" themselves on the roof solarium. French Fascists Organize Political Party Paris. (WNS) Fascism and anti-Semitism received official political standing in democratic France when Col. Francois de la Rocque, head of the Croix de Feu, announced the creation of the French Social party, a union of all Fascist and anti-Semitic organizations. Creation of the party was decided upon after the French government had ordered the immediate dissolution of the Fascist leagues, only to relent and permit them to continue if they would liquidate their militias. Enemies of the Blum cabinet are spreading a rumor that the Jewish premier may resign because, recognizing that the gold standard must be abandoned, and being on record as opposing such a move, he wants to avoid the accusation that he broke his word. The story goes that he would permit Finance Minister Vincent Auriol to become premier, and later, after the gold standard has been abandoned, would resume the premiership. Two Jackets.

Differences Swept Aside Unanimous election of Dr. Wise as president was assured when the convention swept aside all personal and DR. ISRAEL GOLDSTEIN Vice President group differences in the interests of a united Zionism and, in a session, packed with drama and emotion, unanimously adopted the agreement formulated by a "peace committee" of seven Zionist leaders which had been previously approved in caucuses of both groups. By the terms of the agreement, Dr. Wise will become president, Mr. Roth-enberg will become chairman of the administrative committee a newly created post commanding authority and reforms long sought by Mr. Roth-enberg within the organization will be adopted. The mention of the leaders' names COncord 5585 -v. ftVff &-) Ill V-: Vh, r X f 1 i i - - t 4 evoked three-minute ovations. The delegates stood to sing the Hatikvah. After Dr. Goldstein had moved adoption of the report, seconding speeches were made by Mr. Lipsky and Mr. Rothenberg in which both expressed gratification at the satisfactory solution of the difficulties. In ' r - f RABBI ABBA HILLEL SILVER Vice President concluding, Mr. Rothenberg emphasized that "the peace embodied in the document must be continued after the convention closes." Report Divided into Three Sections The report is divided into three sections: A. Proposing Dr. Wise as president and Mr. Rothenberg as chairman of the administrative committee, which is to administer the affairs and establish the policies of the organization between conventions. B. Providing for the drawing up by a non-partisan body comprising three Rothenberg supporters, three Wise adherents and three members of the "peace committee," of a list of nominations for the executive committee, the administrative committee and the national council for submission to and approval by the nominations committee. C. Administrative reforms, which are divided into three parts: 1. Fixing the presidential term at two years "in consonance with the present effort to bring into service all those who can and will serve. 2. The secretary or secretaries of the Z. O. A. are to be selected by the administrative committee "in order to create an administrative staff which shall be able to function with the utmost efficiency." 3. No staff members will be eligible for membership in the executive or administrative committees of the Z. O. A. or of the allied fund-raising institutions "to enable the staff of the Z. O. A. to concentrate on its tasks." Fear Weakening of Morale Major Henry Proctor, member of the British Parliament, declared in an address that the great danger to Zionism was not on the British or the Palestine front but on the American front. "The Arabs will not succeed in London or in Palestine, but there is danger they will succeed in weakening the morale of the American Zionists," he said. He declared that Great Britain was wholeheartedly behind the Zionist effort in Palestine, stressing that never before had he seen such unanimity in parliament as during the recent debate on the Palestine situation. Other resolutions adopted: Exhorting Great Britain to "adhere to that spirit of good will and that desire for historic reparation to the Jewish people which animated the issuance of the Balfour Declaration." The Z. 0. A. associated itself wholeheartedly with the 12-point program adopted at the June meeting of the Palestine members of the World Zionist organization actions committee. Another resolution condemned the role of the communists in the Palestine disorders. The Z. O. A. also reaffirmed its support of the anti-Nazi boycott. H ARRANGE AHTI-HAZI OLYMPIAD IN SPAIN New York (WNS) While the official American Olympic team which will represent this country at the Berlin Olympiad is still being selected, a rival team, sponsored by the committee on fair play in sports, embarked on the S.S. Transylvania for Spain to participate in the peoples Olympics at Barcelona, July 19-26. Organized by anti-Nazi forces as a counter-attraction to the Berlin Olympics, the Barcelona games have drawn entries from a score of countries. The American team of nine comprises Charles Burley of Pittsburgh, Golden Gloves boxing champion, who refused a place on the regular Olympic team; Dorothy Tucker, negro dressmaker, who is a swimmer and hurdler; Harry Engel, garment cutter, a long-distance runner; Bernard Dan-chik, wrestler; Eddie Kraus, who divides his time between making knit dressess and pole-vaulting; Myron Dickes, trackman; Julian Raul, cycler; Al Chakin, boxer and wrestler; and Frank Payton, trackman. They expect to return to the United States in time to participate in the World Labor Athletic carnival, another anti-Nazi sports festival, which is to be held at Randall's island Aug. 15 and 16 under the auspices of the National Jewish Labor committee. Before sailing the anti-Nazi athletes received a message from Gov. Herbert H. Lehman wishing them luck in the games.

Olympic Team Cut As Boycott Hits Funds New York (JTA) While Avery Brundage, chairman of the American Olympic committee, announced a nation-wide appeal to make up the $146,-000 deficit in the fund to finance the American team, Jeremiah T. Mahoney, in a statement this week, traced the shortage to anti-Nazi sentiment in this country. The appeal for funds was made after the Olympic committee was forced, in an unprecedented action, to cut several of its teams and cancel reservations for 40 staterooms on the Manhattan, which will carry the American team t6 Berlin next Wednesday. The axe fell on the women's track and field team, the fencing squad, the men's field hockey team and other units. Many athletes were obliged to pay their own fare. The Olympic committee worked under the policy that each team had to be self-supporting. New York (WNS) Desperately in need of $146,000 to finance the American Olympic team, the American Olympic committee, through a newly organized group calling itself the New York Olympic committee, has published advertisements in New York newspapers appealing to the public for funds. In the advertisement, which was paid for by the Southern Pacific company, a plea is made for funds in the name of American youth. The ad asks: "Will America alone of 53 V?7 o ooo" It ts simpte to transform them into an automatic Storage Water System new No more stair climbing. Enjoy hot water at the turn of a faucet.

The three last named were additional qualifiers. Helen Jacobs Wins Wimbledon Finals London (WNS) Helen Jacobs, American Jewish tennis star from California, won the All-English women's tennis singles championship when she defeated Mrs. Hilda Sperling of Denmark 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 in the Wimbledon finals before a crowd of 20,000 spectators.
