.6 THE WISCONSIN JEWISH CHRONICLE The Jew In Aviation From Ezekieirthe Prophet to Charles Levine There Is a Thrilling Tale of Visions, Science and Daring Action By EMANUEL ARONSBERG What has the Jew done for avia tion? With the successful crossing of the Columbia from New York to Germany, carrying the first Jew across the Atlantic through the air, this query must be of some interest to the Jewish reader everywhere. Especially when we consider that the financial misunderstanding between Mr. Levine and some of his former associates in the venture may have turned against him that part of public opinion which has always seized with alacrity upon any excuse to ascribe the trait of "hard bargaining" to the race as a whole. To review briefly some of the major performances of Jews in the aeronautic field will, therefore, be useful and enlightening. We have had both dreamers and doers in aeronautics, just as in all other fields of human endeavor. We recall, as a start, the vision of Ez-ekiel, as he tells us, in chapter 1, that "When the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up . . . for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels. And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, liVe the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty." The wheels, the wings, the great waters they are with us today, and they might have appealed to the imagination of Charles Levine as he was winging his perilous way across the waters below him. And the Almighty was with him, too, and made it possible for him to realize the dream of the prophet of old. It is a long span, this one from Ez- ekiel to Levine, and it is useful to mention the two names here to illus trate the fact that we had had our dreamers and our doers as well. Seven centuries pass after the vision of the prophet, and another Jew, a native of Samaria, known to the world today as Simon the Magician, arrests our attention. We read in the writings of the fathers of the Roman Church that he appeared in Rome and performed all manner of supernatural stunts, winning even the favor of Nero. St. Peter and St. Paul appear to have considered this Jew a menace to their own church and set themselves hard against him and his miracles. His last performance, the story goes on to relate, was an actual flight through the air in a chariot drawn by demons. As he was carerring through the ether, the two apostles knelt down and prayed, with such good effect that he crashed to the ground a mangled corpse. Thus the tale of the holy fathers of the Church. Who knows but there may be a grain of aeronautic fact in the fiction of the zealous annalists of the Christian Church? Who knows but that those "demons" were in reality the mechanical devices of a very good inventive intellect coming into the world a little too early? Anyhow, the good Christian Fathers themselves have told us that he was flying through the air, and, if a Jew refuses, perhaps, to take it too seriously, a good, pious Christian should believe it and give that Jew in Rome credit for his contribution to aviation. More than thousand years pass after Simon the Magician performed his stunts at Rome, and we hear nothing of Jews, or, for that matter, Gentiles, doing something for the art of flying. There is only one notable exception, sometime about the year 1500, when that universal genius, Leonardo da Vinci, seems to have experimented also with the art of flying, leaving behind some remarkable drawings of his own idea of flying machinery. The next we hear of a Jew playing his part in the drama of aviation is in the latter part of the 19th century, and this time it is neither a dreamer nor a magician, but a scientific, sober mechanical engineer, using the last word of science to attempt a solution of the problem of flight. The name of this Jew is Otto Lilienthal, and his home is Germany. Born in that year of storm and stress, 1848, he seems to have been destined by Fate itself to attempt to blaze new trails and to travel untrodden paths. For a period of 25 years, Otto Lilienthal, assisted by his brother, experimented and labored for a solution of the problem of aviation, paying the highest price a human being can pay his life for his devotion to his science. Frederick A. Talbot, the widely known English author of scientific works, has this to say of Lilienthal: "He paved the way for the realization of the flying machine as we know it today. He built a machine comprising rudder and wings. He approached the problem from the severely scientific point of view, discovering new facts and new data for himself. By starting from an artificial hill a hundred feet in height, he was able to sail over distances up to a thousand feet." Another author, Mr. Octave Chan-ute, whose writings are fundamental for every student of modern aeronautics in this country, in his book, "Progress in Flying Machines" (New York, 1894), pays the following tribute to Lilienthal: "Among the most systematic and carefully conducted series of experiments that have ever been made in the direction of artificial flight are those of Herr Otto Lilienthal of Berlin, Germany, a mechanical engineer and constructor, and a prominent member of the German Society for the Advancement of Aerial Navigation. In the opinion of the writer of these lines, Herr Lilienthal has attacked the mos.t difficult, and perhaps the most important of the many problems which must be solved before success can be hoped for in navigating the air with flying machines. He has made a good beginning and seems to be in a fair way to accomplish some success in riding on the wind ." (pp. 201 seq.) He was not destined, however, to continue these promising experiments, for while testing a new stearing gear he had devised, he fell from a height of 45 feet and broke his spine, dying from the effects of it in August, 1896, at the early age of 48. Mr. A. M. Herring, an associate of Chanute, built a Lilienthal machine within a month after his death and made about a hundred successful glides with it in this country. Mr. Chanute is said to have given the benefit of his wide experience to the Wright Brothers while they were still at work upon their gliding machines, so that it may be assumed quite safely that the results of the Jewish engineer's experiments in Germany, which so impressed Mr. Chanute, were taken into consideration and utilized to good advantage by the Wrights in their epochal achievements. Ezekiel, the dreamer, Simon, the Magician, Lilienthal, the scientist, and now plain, ordinary Charlie Levine of New York the doer they are all our own and they must be remembered as mileposts on the long and dangerous path from the earth to the skies. Thev are the breathing symbols of that restless, seeking spirit which no amount of prejudice and no amount of bigotry can deny or take away from the Jewish people. They stand there to testify that we are willing and able to dream of and do our share in the advancement of the arts and sciences. Lest it be imagined that Levine is unique among Jews in facing the risks of air-flight, we have to recall those Jews who took even greater risks in the air before him, those who flew not only in the fact of angry winds, but of deadly bullets and shells, during the World War. We find that more than 700 Jewish officers and privates served in the British Royal Air Force during the war. And we find that nine of these officers were awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. This should make it clear that we did not shirk our duty in one of the deadliest branches of the military service in war, and we needed no Levine to demonstrate our courage, if not recklessness, which some mistake for courage and thus charge us with lacking the latter. Someone said that it takes a great deal of courage to go through life merely as a Jew. It must be left to some other investigator to ascertain the part played by Jewish boys in the American air forces during the World War. Today, we confine ourselves to but a single name, that of young Mr. Guggenheim. It is an open secret that it was his enthusiasm for aviation that played no mean part in interesting his father in the subject, with the result that we have today the Guggenheim Fund for the promotion of aeronautic sciences. And it is only a few days since the same Jew was honored by the University of New York for giving more than half a million dollars to that institution to open its school of aeronautics. It is to be hoped that this institution will train not only good fliers, but also good sports. These, we need more than fliers. It is to be hoped that Levine, the Jew, and Chamber-lin, the Gentile, sharing the perils of the flight they have made, will serve as living symbols of the elementary wisdom so often overlooked that "united we stand, divided we fall." If America has given larger opportunities than any other country to the Levines and the Guggenheims, they are paying for them handsomely, it would seem. While keeping their feet planted sufficiently firmly in the ground to mine that yellow metal without which little can be accomplished in this world we live in, they are running true to good Jewish form and doing a whole lot to realize that dream of Ezekiel and to soar in higher and nobler altitudes, a credit to their race, a glory to America, and a promise and a hope for a better fellowship among men. Anti-Semites Demand Be Deported Einstein Berlin. (J.T.A.) The claim that Albert Einstein is a Polish Jew and the demand that he be expelled from Germany, are put forward by "Der Hammer," the anti-Semitic periodical published in Leipzig by Theodore Fritsch, one of the members of the Anti-Semitic International. "The Polish Jew, Albert Einstein, ought to be deported to where he came from," writes "Der Hammer." "Where the 'Hammer' has it from tliat Albert Einstein, who comes from South Germany, has anything to do with Poland, is a mystery," comments the "Welt am Montag" here in quoting the article from "Der Hammer." "Does it not know that the whole of the scientific world honors Albert Einstein as the greatest luminary of German science?" the paper asks. Rabbi Jos. Stoltz, of Chicago. Retires Chicago. Dr. Joseph Stolz, dean of the Reform rabbis of Chicago, and now completing 40 years in the ministry there, has resigned from active duties as rabbi of Temple Isiah Israel. Dr. Stolz plans to retire after the high holidays next autumn. The directors of the congregation have proposed electing Dr. Stolz rabbi emeritus "in recognition of his long and distinguished service to his congregation and the community." When in 1912, he had completed 25 years in his pulpit, Dr. Stolz was elected to his position for life and the title of rabbi emeritus is to be conferred upon him as an additional honor. Rabbi Stolz has served as president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the Chicago Rabbinical association, and the : Hebrew Union College Alumni association.

Henry Ford Acts as Benefactor to Russian Emigres in Czecho-Slovakia Prague. (J.T.A.) New facts revealing Henry Ford as the benefactor of monarchists and anti-Semites were learned here. The correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic agency is informed of an interesting development pertaining to Henry Ford and the Russian emigres in Czecho-Slovakia. JThe emigres, who were compelled to leave Soviet Russia, formed a relief society here which received the support of the Czecho-Slovakian government. When the Czecho-Slovakian government recently concluded a commercial treaty with the Soviets, the Moscow government demanded as one of its conditions that the Czecho-Slovakian government ceases its subsidy to the emigres' .society, as many of its members are monarchists. With the Czecho-Slovakian government's support withdrawn, the executive committee of the society appealed to Henry Ford, asking him for tractors for its members and whatever assistance he might see fit to render. Henry Ford sent a cable in reply asking how many tractors were needed. In a letter to the committee Mr. Ford expressed his concern ove; the fate of the Russian emigres and promised assistance. Jews are also members of the emigres' relief society. X. . Local Men Witness Lindbergh Welcome The sfory1 of the unprecedented reception to CoH "Charles A; Lindbergh in Washington, D. CXon his return to America was graphically told last week by B. E. Nickoll, Jack Nickoll and Harry S. Metz, of Milwaukee, who enjoyed the privilege of witnessing the great demonstration to the heroic aviator from the moment the Memphis steamed up the Potomac to the presentation of the flying medal of honor at the Washington monument and the reception in the evening. They were in New York on business and made a special trip to the capitol to witness the historic event. "We experienced the greatest thrill of our lives," said Harry Metz, who is manager of Dayton's on Wisconsin avenue. "We were particularly fortunate in being passengers on the leading boat which met the cruiser Memphis and were no more than 50 yards away when -Lindbergh stepped on the bridge and waived his greeting. Guns boomed, whistles shrieked, the crowds on the shore went mad, and overhead it seemed the sky was filled with countless airplanes of every description." "We viewed the parade and heard the speeches at the monument which were .plainly heard by the vast throng through amplifiers. Through a friend whose home is in Minneapolis we received tickets to the reception of the Minnesota society at the Willard in the evening. As I sat listening to the speeches, the music and the demonstration I was thrilled at the thought that at that very moment everything that I heard was also heard by my wife back in Milwaukee through the radio. Lindbergh is truly a wonderful boy. His modesty is natural and he seems to be absolutely unspoiled by the honors that would turn any person's head in a minute." B'RITH ABRAHAN ORDER HOLDS 41st CONVENTION 500 Delegates Represent 120,000 Members May Abandon Insurance Plan Saratoga Springs, N. Y. (J.T.A.) Progressive adjustment to the, present day conditions created in Jewish fraternal organizations, following the cessation of immigration to the United States, was presented at the opening session of the 41st annual convention of the Independent Order B'rith Abraham, one of the largest Jewish fraternal organizations, operating on a mutual insurance basis. The order was established in 1887, at the beginning of East European Jewish immigration to the United States. Over 500 delegates representing a membership of 120,000, were present in Convention hall when Judge Gus-tave Hartman, grand master, delivered his message at the opening session. A budget for the activities of the Order during the coming year was presented by Judge Hartman, calling for the expenditure of $87,350 as against expected receipts of $88,053. This amount includes capital tax $72,-000, the largest item in the expenditure would be appropriations for the relief of members to the amount of $25,000. The budget for this year represents an increase of $4,000 over that for the year 1926-7. The insurance question, which has of late become acute in the Order, due to the stoppage of immigration with a proportionate decrease in new members and to the advancing age of the early members, was the pivot around which the attention of the many delegates centered. The Order had been operating its insurance department on a post mortem assessment plan, which called for taxation of the membership on the death of a member. As the number of deaths increased and the membership did not grow proportionately, the situation presented a difficult problem. Previous attempts made in the course of several years to change the operation basis from a post mortem plan to fraternal rates plan met with the opposition of the members of long standing. To cope with this problem Judge Hartman, in accordance with resolutions adopted at previous conventions, reported on a plan to amend the constitution of the Order so as to meet the new situation. Following presentation of the activities of the Order during the year, when it arranged a Jewish Day at the sesqui -centennial exposition in Phil adelphia, the grand master expressed the sympathy of the Order with the Mississippi flood victims and urged contributions for their relief. He also urged the co-operation of the Order with the efforts to increase facilities for Jewish education in the communities, to assist the Hadassah, the Ort, the Hias and the United Palestine Appeal. Particular emphasis was laid on the Jewish situation in Roumania and the efforts of the Order to join other national Jewish organizations in bringing the situation to the attention of the public at large. Judge Hartman expressed continued adherence of the Order to the American Jewish Congress idea and endorsed the forthcoming, conference on Jewish Rights to be held in Geneva under the auspices of the Congress and the Committee of Jewish Delegations. Mond Criticises Palestine Government for Scanty Support London. (J.T.A.) The Palestine government was criticised for its scanty support of the Jewish work in Palestine by Sir Alfred Mond, president of the economic board for Palestine, at its annual meeting. Sir Alfred reviewed the present position in Palestine and stated that the crisis is not surprising. Fluctuation is possible - after too rapid development, "he said. However, things are 1 moving, he said. Greater participation on the part of British Jews in the board's work was urged by the president. FEDERATION LAUDS WORK OF RABBI LEVI ir RESOLUTIONS Resolutions on the retirement of Rabbi Charles S. Levi were passed at the last meeting of the board of directors of the Federated Jewish Charities of Milwaukee. Rabbi Levi was a member of the board for 14 years. His work on behalf of the Federation was eulogized by Nat Stone and Charles Friend. The resolutions which will be presented to Dr.. Levi in album form follow: "At the monthly meeting of the board of directors of the Federated Jewish Charities, held at the City club this ninth day of June, 1927, at the conclusion of the business meeting, upon motion presented by Chas. Friend, senior member of the board, duly seconded, it was unanimously resolved that we are indebted to Rabbi Charles L. Levi for his helpful attitude toward our philanthropies during his 14 years of professional ministration. We recognize that his work in the community has made for progress in the up-building of sentiment in favor of our philanthropies, and through his counsel and advocacy of sound principles at our meetings, he-has contributed much toward our attainments. "We hereDy express our gratitude for his inspiration to our board and to our community, and his helpfulness in bringing about a broader intelligence and deeper sense of appreciation for the work performed by our constituent organizations. We realize that the progress attained by the Federation in the community in constant increase of donations is largely due to those who, like Rabbi Levi, have upheld our administration and crystal-ized sentiment in favor of our work. "We share the regret of his many followers that he is leaving us and extend to Rabbi Levi our sincere hope that he will continue to serve the cause of our cherished religion through his example and advocacy of the principles of organized philanthropy. "Further resolved that we spread these resolutions upon our minutes and present Rabbi Levi with an embossed copy signed by our members. Reform Judaism Now Being Broadcast Cincinnati. Twelve congregations affiliated with the Union are regularly broadcasting religious services. This was made known in a survey recently conducted by Rabbi Louis I. Egelson of the Department of Synagogue and School Extension. On Sunday mornings Rabbi Samuel H. Goldenson, Pittsburgh; Rabbi Harry Levi, Boston; Dr. Leo M. Franklin, Detroit; Rabbi Eugene Mannheimer, Des Moines; and Dr. Joseph Rauch, Louisville, Ky., broadcast their regular service. Those broadcasting on Friday night are Rabbi David Lefkowitz, Dallas; Rabbi Israel L. Kaplan, Jacksonville; Rabbi Samuel M. Gup, Providence; and Dr. Philip D. Bookstaber, Harris-burgh, Pa. Some rabbis broadcast their service for a continuous period of a number of weeks. Among these are Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, Cleveland, broadcasting the last three Sundays in May and the first Sunday in June; Rabbi Barnett R. Brickner, Cleveland, for seven Sunday mornings from January 23, through March 4, and Dr. Jacob Nieto, of San Francisco, Calif., for the month of January. Occasionally sermons and holyday services are broadcast by Dr. Abram Simon, of Washington, Dr. Jacob Singer of Chicago, Rabbi Marius Ranson of Albany, Rabbi Harry S. Margolis, of St. Paul, Minn., and Rabbi Albert G. Minda, of Minneapolis. Many rabbis were planning to broadcast services next season. Among them are Dr. Harry W. Ettelson, Memphis, Tenn., Rabbi Sidney S. Tedesche, New Haven, Rabbi Samuel Koch, Seattle", Rabbi Solomon Foster, Newark, Rabbi Simon R. Cohen, Brooklyn, Rabbi Maurice M. Feuer-licht, Indianapolis, Rabbi Beryl D. Cohon, Pensacola, Fla., and Rabbi Jacob I. Meyer, Bridgeport, Conn. The Union at its last executive board meeting also voted to undertake religious services by radio. Lord Swaythling, Outstanding Leader of Anglo-Jewry Is Dead London. (J.T.A.) Lord Swayth ling, Louis Samuel Montagu, one of the outstanding leaders of Anglo-Jewry and president of the Federation of Synagogues and Initiation Society, died at the age of 58, following a brief illness. Lord Swaythling was a strictly ob servant Jew. Kashruth, the Mosaic dietary laws, were strictly observed m his home. His son, Stuart, 29, will succeed him to the peerage. Louis Samuel Montagu was born December 10, 1868. He was the oldest son of the first Baron Swaythling, Samuel Montagu, and .Ellen (Cohen). In 1898 he married Gladys Helen RachtTl, daughter of the late Col. A. E. Goldsmid. . Lord Swaythling was the head of the banking firm of Samuel Montagu and company of London. He belonged to the Reform club, the Royal Southern Yacht club and many organizations. Dedicate Rathenau Memorial in Berlin Berlin. (J.T.A.) The Walter Rathenau Endowment Museum was dedicated here at Freienwalde Palace. The Palace was built by Queen Frederica Louise, the wife of the Prussian King Frederick William II. Rathenau,5 the" late . German Jewish, statesman, who was assassinated by anti-Semites, acquired the palace from the Crown in 1909. The rooms which Rathenau occupied will be dedicated as a Rathenau memorial. New York Federation Figures Show Lawyers to Be Most Philanthropic Group New York. (J.T.A.)

Real estate men are second with 90 subscribers and the bankers and brokers stand third, with 870. Next in order among the leading trades and professions are the cotton goods trade, 741; physicians, 668; men's and boys' clothing, 661; educational and social workers, G59; dress industry, 563; jewelry, 552; silk trade, 484; cloaks, suits and skirt trade, 469; retired, 442 and insurance, 404. Standing far ahead of any of the trade or professional groups is the women's division, which numbers approximately 6,400 members. The junior division has 1,194 members. WARBURG, MOND OUTLINE PLAN OF PALESTINE SURVEY COMMISSION Leaders Feted by Most Prominent Jews in London Praise Palestine London. (J.T.A.) Felix M. Warburg and Sir Alfred Mond, two of the leading members of the Jewish Agency Palestine Survey commission, outlined their views of the future work in the upbuilding of Palestine, in addresses delivered at a luncheon given by the Zionist executive in honor of Felix M. Warburg, upon his arrival here from a trip to Palestine and Russia. The luncheon took place following a meeting of the executive in which Mr. Warburg participated, and was attended by Sir Herbert Samuel, Sir Alfred Mond, James de Rothschild, Bernard Baron, Mr. Hirst, Otto SchifT, Pinchas Ruttenberg and the members of the Zionist executive. Dr. Chaim Weizmann presided. Mr. Warburg, who alluded to a ten year program for Palestine upbuilding work, said that he was greatly impressed upon his second visit to Palestine. "This visit has strengthened the impressions of my earlier visit which I made during the administration of Sir Herbert Samuel," he said. "I just returned from Crimea and from Palestine. My grandmother used to say, 'Never make comparisons,' so I am not going to draw a comparison between the Jewish work in Palestine and in Crimea. Economic and agricultural development can be conducted by Jews anywhere, but only Palestine is able to combine economic achievements with a spiritual rebirth. Palestine has been the home of our ancestors, and I have seen with my own eyes the great progress of agricultural and spiritual life in Palestine for which the university stands as a shining example," Mr. Warburg stated. The speaker complimented Mr. Ruttenberg who, he said, has spread electric light and power in Palestine. "I rejoice to know that the first group of experts of the Jewish Agency Palestine Survey commission is already in Palestine. Their report would certainly give an account of the agricultural and other undertakings and formulate a plan which could be carried out for the next ten years. I am sure that the commission will be able to provide a program of economic work in which Jewry can unite in order to carry it out during the next ten years. It is unnecessary to pay much attention to pessimistic ut- terances, nor trouble oneself to correct statements which wandering journalists put in one's mouth," Mr. Warburg stated, referring to the statements ascribed to him recently by Paul Sandor, the Hungarian Jewish leader, a non-Zionist, who reported in the Hungarian press what purported to have been a conversation between him and Mr. Warburg on the steamer "Resolute," concerning Palestine. "Upon my return to America I shall spare no effort to continue unifying the work which was started by Dr. Weizmann. He preached unity, and it is a great lesson which Jews everywhere should learn. With united effort we can overcome all difficulties and make Palestine a great center for Jewry," Mr. Warburg stated. Sir Alfred Mond, in his address, greeted Mr. Warburg as his colleague on the Palestine Survey commission. "I can only endorse Mr. Warburg's statement," Sir Alfred declared. "It is no secret that Dr. Weizmann and his colleagues are going through a period of great financial stringency. In my opinion they deserve active support. Dr. Weizmann and his colleagues have conducted their work during the past ten years most successfully under very difficult circumstances, depending entirely upon immediate unqualified financial assistance," Sir Alfred stated. Anglo-Soviet Breach Puts Stop To Russian Jewish Immigration to Palestine Jerusalem. (J.T.A.) The break between the British government and Soviet Russia will have its effect on the Jewish immigration to Palestine, it was learned here. Following the severance of relations between the British government and the Union of . Socialist Soviet Republics all applications for visas of Russian Jewish immigrants to Palestine will be denied. Instructions issued to the immigration authorities indi cate that those Russians who obtained" visas before the Anglo-Soviet breach occurred will be admitted to the country. .
