SATURDAY 7th Rachel Sisters (Board) 7:30 p.m. SUNDAY 8th Junior Council of Jewish Women (Regular) 2:30 p.m. The Jewish Center Round Table Discussions 4 :30 p. m. The Jewish Center Informal Dance Eve Phi Lambda Phi fraternity held its first convocation in its new meeting rooms, located at the Hotel Schroeder, Friday evening, April 29. Pledging activities for the season were definitely gotten under way with a third smoker. A completed list of men pledged will be issued in the ensuing article. Additional possible location for the summer formal were investigated, these being the Woodmont and the Brown Deer Country Club. The committee in charge of the affair is composed of Fraters William Polland, chairman, Frater Lorenz Feiman and Alumni Representative Don Jackson. ' Alumnus Eugene Levin '31, is sales manager of the Premier Vacuum Cleaner company. Alumnus Jos. Goodman, '31, who had received his "W" in '29 for wrestling, defeated Alumnus Jos. Picker in the semi-finals of the fraternity wrestling tournament held in the Badger field house. Past Master Picker sustained a bruised and dislocated shoulder. Paradoxically speaking, the diminutive Picker got all of the breaks necessary to assure Goodman of victory. SYRKIN POALE ZION BR. The Syrkin Poale Zion Branch met on Tuesday, May 3, at the Jewish Folk's Institute. The first part of the evening was devoted entirely to business. Members were earnestly urged to attend the approaching concert of May 15, given by the Poale Zion Singing Society. Mr. Zalmon Rubashoff of Palestine, as has been planned, will deliver an address. Mr. M. Ellman, one of our own members, rendered an interpretation of several books of Jewish interest. His informal, natural manner of presenting his personal impressions of the books not only created an absorbed interest among his listeners, but also made each one of them feel a keen desire to read the books at his earliest opportunity. The talk was both instructive and inspirational, and we look forward to many more such discussions from Mr. Ellman. The next meeting of the Syrkin Poale Zion Branch, to be held May 10, will offer an especial treat to those who attend it. We will have with us a noted rabbi, Rabbi A. Cohen of Racine, whose topic of discussion will be "Education and Tradition." We sincerely welcome visitors to our meetings. AGUDATH B'NAI JACOB A regular meeting was held Sunday afternoon, April 24 at the Congregation B'nai Jacob, Thirteenth and Brown. 'The program followed: A current event by Lester Posner; "How To Get a Job," by Sara Schuman. A modern love letter read by Sidney A. Levner. Movie review by Ann Hirsch-bin and a well given speech by Faye Teplinsky a guest from Chicago. There was a large attendance of visitors. It was decided that the club have a hike Sunday morning, May 15. The destination will be decided at our next meeting. Everybody is cordially invited to attend our next meeting, May 8 at 3:00 p. m. AVUKAH Rabbi Aaron Cohen of Racine will deliver the final lecture of a series of four at the meeting of the group to be held on Sunday afternoon, May 9 at the Jewish Center at 3 p. m. His subject will be "Spengler Philosopher or Junker?" and will treat upon the latest of Spengler's books. This lecture is free and the public is invited to attend. Through the courtesy of the Atlas Radio company who installed a radio in the gymnasium of the Board of Jewish Education, on Sunday morning, the pupils of the school were able to listen hi on the program arranged by the American Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on May 1. The program which came as a suT-prise to the pupils was greatly enjoyed by all. We wish to take this opportunity to offer thanks to Mr. Shapiro, of the Atlas Radio Company, for his generosity. Educational Committee The members of the educational committee of the Board of Jewish Education, of which Mr. Chaim Siegel is chairman, are taking a very aetivo part in the affairs of the school. Each week a different member visits classes, in which way he becomes familiar with methods employed by the teaching staff, and reports his findings at the monthly educational meeting. The following members have so far visited classes. Mr. I. Cohen, Mr. A. Mosher, and Mr. E. Weinshel. HATIKVOH CIRCLE A mixup in dates has put the club in a peculiar position, through some mistake the club finds that an extemporaneous contest is scheduled for either May 11 or May 18. Leon Merkow was immediately placed in charge and will be aided by Jack EisenJrath. All paid-up members will be eligible to enter. Harold Altman announced the first pairings for the tennis tournament: Leon Merkow vs. Jack Eisendraih, Earl Biller vs. David Druskin, Joe Zamsky vs. Elmer Goodmann, Cyril Gross vs. Harold Altman, Phillip Cohen vs. David Polland, George Klein vs. Buddy Adler, Al Schiller vs. Ray Socol, Louis Nashban vs. Harold Wolfson, Charles Franks vs. Gene Adler. All other members who have not signed for the tournament, and wish to play see Harry before ihe next meeting. These games should be played before May 18, when the second round will be posted. The baseball team is practicing at Thirty-fourth and State streets with Concordia College. Tryouts for catcher have been going on without apparent success, the best being Joe Schwartz. Louis Nashban will again take the pitching assignment with Buddy and Gene Adlers as alternates. Formation of a golf tournament is certain again this year, however since Elmer Goodman, last year's winner and captain, will be busy with his riding classes, it is expected that Eail Biller will be put in charge. Don't forget the first riding class tomorrow morning, May 8. Herman Bernstein Received By President Hoover Washington. (J.T.A.) Herman Bernstein, American Minister to Albania, now in the United States after an absence of two years, was received by President Hoover last Wednesday. It is understood thatMinister Bernstein reported to the President on conditions in Albania and neighboring countries. Minister Bernstein also conferred with Acting Secretary of State Castle, Assistant Secretary of State Wilbur J. Carr, and Wallace S. Murray, chief of the Near East Division. The State Department, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learns, is highly pleased with Minister Bernstein's record and certain accomplishments to his credit have met with appreciation.

Schneider, Maccabee Track Star Back From Olympics Bronzed by his sojourn in Palestine, Harry Schneider, former New York University football and track star, has brought home further details of I the world Maccabee games, which I were held for the first time in Tei Aviv last month. Schneider, one cf 15 American representatives in the "Jewish Olympics," has returned in advance of the rest of the team. A total of 12 first places were won by the Americans in the track and field games, Schneider reported, and he modestly admitted that he accounted for four of them. Continuing his training after his graduation from New York University a year ago in the hope of making the Olympic team in the discus throw, Schneider l cached a new peak when he won this specialty in the old world with a throw of 158 feet. His own Metropolitan A.A.U. record is 148 feet. Schneider also won the 16-pound shot put with 45 feet 4 inches and the javelin throw with 155 feet. In all three events he beat Dave Adelman, former Georgetown athlete, who took three seconds. Schneider also won the triathalon, putting the shot 45 feet 4 inches, high jumping 5 feet 2 inches and running the 100 meters in 12 seconds, which is remarkable time for a 235 pounder. Schneider, a member of the Millrose A. A., came home with renewed hope of representing the United States at Los Angeles in the discus throw. His throw of 158 feet places him among the country's top-notchers. Gus Heymann, former P.S.A.L. sprinter from Evander Childs High School, won the Maccabee 100-meter title in the splendid time of 10.7 seconds. Arthur Feiden, of New York won the high jump with a leap of G feet. Dave White, former Harvard athlete, won the broad jump with 20 feet 6 inches, and Leslie Flaksman, also a former Harvard runner, won the 1,500-meter championship in 4:19. Harry Werbin, also of the Millrose A. A., was second in the 5,000-meter run and third in the 10,000-meter run, Schneider said. Miss Syd Koff, of New York, equalled Schneider's feat in winning four championships in the women's game? at Tel Aviv. She won the 100-meter dash in 13.4 seconds, the high jump, broad jump and triathalon. The only other news I have been able to gather was that the German team won the relays. By the scarcity of news concerning the biggest event in the history of modern Jewish sport you would imagine that the whole meet was conducted under the cover of darkness and everyone participating was pledged to keep what transpired a deep, dark and hidden secret. Jewish Athlete Murdered Sidney Harris, amateur heavyweight and football player for New York University was killed in New York last week when he apprehended a burglar in his sister's home. Walking into the bedroom he found a prowler ransacking the room. Harris, a big husky fellow grappled with him. The bandit was armed and put two bullets into Harris's abdomen. A friend who was in the apartment heard the shots ran into the room and got the gun away from the murderer. Using the pistol as a club he knocked him out and rushed for help but by the time he returned the murderer had regained consciousness and had escaped. He was not caught. Harris died in the hospital a few hours later. Although young Harris had attended New York University for only two years ha was well known on the campus. He played on the freshman team and the next year was a utility linesman on the varsity. His best sport was boxing and his failure to return to college for his junior year was felt keenly. Some Chatterings and Quite Interesting The comeback attempts of Benny Leonard may not be such artistic successes but they have proven very satisfactory financially. Benny, so the dope goes, has netted himself $30,000 thus far. One big slice and back into retirement for wise little Benny. A Jewish boy from Roumania, Frankie Nour, has come to these shores to make himself a piece of change in the prize ring. The young man is a fly-weight and his manager Mr. Rom O'Rourke says that Frank is the champion fly-weight of Roumania. Such modesty is commendable. Not knowing the racket and being unaware that fights are arranged through political alliances rather than the will of the parties involved, Frankie is finding the going rather tough. I did not see his opening bout but from reports I understand that the young man is rather handy "with his dukes." Our Mr. Al Cohen of the Brooklyn Dodgers ran into a lot of bad baseball the other day, accounting for no fewer than three errors but then it is better to get it out of his system all at one time. His hitting is not so bad. Do you like soccer games? If so take the girl friend along at no extra charge. A new "free for ladies" rule has been promulgated in the American Soccer League. Make your bets now America will win the Davis Cup this year the Yankees will win the American League pennant Roosevelt will get the Democratic nomination and Mr. Hoover will be just an ex-president next year at this time. Agudath Israelites Acquitted Jerusalem. (J.T.A.) Nine members of the Agudath Israel were acquitted and two were ordered to pay 30 pounds each by the court, following disturbances, as an expression of opposition to the holding of football games on the Sabbath on the Maccabee grounds.
