6 THE WISCONSIN JEWISH CHRONICLE Rabbi; Rosen, Greatest Talmud-ical Authority, Leaves Russia Riga (J. T. A.) Rabbi Joseph Rosen, formerly Rabbi of Dwinsk, greatest living Talmudical authority, known as the "Gaon of Rogotschoff, arrived here from Soviet Russia after an absence of many years, to again become Rabbi of Dwinsk. Rabbi Rosen, who is eighty years old, settled in Petrograd at the beginning of the war. He was offered the Chief Rabbinate of Leningrad, which he rejected. During the time he was in Soviet Russia he, under the Bolshevik regime, wrote fourteen books on Talmudical subjects. Special permission was granted to him by the Soviet authorities to take these manuscripts with him. The Rabbi's two grandsons, an engineer and a mathematician, refused government positions because they adhere to strict orthodoxy and would not agree to violate the Sabbath. Sokolow Has Audience with King Ferdinand Bucharest, (J. T. A.) Nachum Sokolow, chairman of the executive of the World Zionist organization, was received recently by King Ferdinand. Following his audience with the king, Mr. Sokolow was presented to Queen Marie. He lunched with the royal family and suite. After luncheon the king conversed with the Zionist leader for over two hours, inquiring about the rebuilding work in Palestine and the situation of the Zionist movement in general. The king and queen were greatly interested in the conversation and showed a very cordial and sympathetic attitude towards the problem. Mr. Sokolow was also received by the Crown Prince. Julius Rosen wald Finances 14 Scientific Expeditions Chicago (J: T. A.) Fourteen scientific expeditions, embracing anthropology, botany, geology, ethnology and zoology, will be financed by Julius Rosenwald and Marshal Field during 1925, according to a statement made by D. Davis, director of the Chicago Field Museum, conducting the expeditions. Explorations to reconstruct the history of prehistoric peoples and ancient empires will be made. Continued excavations will be carried on at Kish, Mesopotamia, under Professor S. Langdon. The Gobi Desert, where dinosaur eggs were found, will also be explored. The unpenetrated jungles of Central Brazil will be entered for the first time by white men, head ed by the scientists, J. Zimer and C. Sanborn. Discuss Opening of B'nai B'rith to Women Polish Rabbis Preach Against Suicide Epidemic Warsaw (J. T. A.) Divine services are being held in the synagogues of various towns in Poland, to pray for the cessation of the suicide epidemic, which is a result of the distressing economic condition of the Jewish population. Following the appeal of the Warsaw Rabbinate, urging courage and confidence in the return of better times, the Rabbis are delivering sermons against suicide. Lithuanian Minister Abolishes Jewish Autonomy Kovno (J. T. A.) The final act of abolishing the Jewish autonomy in Lithuania and the withdrawal of the rights of the Jewish Communities to control internal Jewish affairs, occurred when the Minister of the Interior instructed the Jewish communities in Lithuania to transfer their departments of vital statistics to the local Rabbis. According to the provisions of the National Autonomy Law, the vital statistics department was in charge of the Jewish communities as public statistics. The transfer to the Rabbis signifies reduction to merely a religious function. Berlin (J. T. A.) The question of admitting women as members of the lodges of the Independent Order B'nai B'rith is seriously discussed in circles of B'nai B'rith leaders in Germany, At the meeting of the Grand Lodge in 1920 a motion was introduced that the women be admitted as members of the lodges. The Grand Lodge, at that meetiner, rejected the motion. It rec ommended, however, that women should be encouraged and invited to cooperate in the B'nai B'rith institutions and also to arrange open meetings which lodge sisters should be permitted to attend. The question is now reopened as to the admittance of women as full-fledged lodge members. It is expected that the next meeting of the Grand Lodge will again take up the matter. Commission to Choose Name for Palestine Currency Jerusalem (J. T. A.) Two commissions, one representing the Palestine Jews and the other representing Palestine Arabs, were appointed by the government to decide on the Hebrew and Arabic names for the Palestine currency which is to be issued shortly to replace the Egyptian pound. The Jewish commission consists of Dr. Joseph Klausner, the well-known Hebrew scholar and historian, editor of Ha'shiloah; Professor Klein and Mr. Gordon, manager of the Anglo-Palestine Bank in Jerusalem. The president of the joint commission is Ronald Storrs, Governor of Jerusalem. Present New Theories Before International Dental Convention Chicago, III. (J. D. B.)

Furniture Of Refinement Persion Furniture in your home lends to it an atmos-phere of refinement and elegance that intangible something in a home that gives it "Personality." 1 PERSION FURNITURE CO 3810-3814 North Ave. Subscribe to The Chronicle $3.00 per Year l W - 1 ft In inn gftom A Town, of Personality Pius ? T HERE are towns that possess PERSONALITY, something that sets them apart from the common, vegetable variety, drab, uninteresting, uninviting. We are attracted to such places irresistibly. They hold a charm for us that draws us to them again and again. We find there a satisfaction in just being that wTe do not try to explain, but simply enjoy, rivery little thing about a town where PERSONALITY sticks out prominently works its spell upon us and we are glad to be there. Indefinable, impersonal, inexplicable, yet we yield to its lure with profound satisfaction. Perhaps it's due to the wraiths of sturdy pioneers working together with present-day worthy sons and daughters. Perhaps Nature has been wondrous kind. Whatever it is, we recognize it for what it is PERSONALITY and are mighty glad to let its compelling influence work its way with us whenever memory unrolls her screen where have been photographed indelible impressions that we cherish. Perhaps its big men have wen us. Perhaps our fancy has been enchained by its wholesomeness. Perhaps its homes, business places, manufactories, institutions and advantages have made a permanent dent in our own make-up so that we experience a deep longing to make that place our own home.
