10 EVENTS IN THE COUNTIES BORDERING ON THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO SPEAKERS DEMAND JUSTICE FOR JEWS Prominent Men Address Mass Meeting to Protest Against Russian Cruelty Revolting Conditions Under Which Israelites Live in the Land of Czar Described OAKLAND, March 15. —A mass meeting held tonight at the synagogue of the First Hebrew congregation, Twelfth end Castro streets, to protest* against the persecution of the Jews in Russia ■was largely attended. The speakers -told of conditions as they exist today. The speakers were Rabbi M. Fried.lander, former Mayor W. R. Davis, Dr. "Benjamin Ide Wheeler and Rev. F. L .' Goqdspeed, ,I>.D, .pastor, .of .the First Presbyterian church. 'J.^XfA ; L Rabbi Friedlamb-r. who made the introductory address, gave a vivid pic- I ture of the condition -of ;thc Jews-in Russia and showed the inhuman treatment to which they were subjected. He appealed to tii.s hearers to demand immediate intervention on the part of the United States. , . ■ ; "- Said he:, "This meeting is called In behalf of , the millions of Jewish subjects in the land of the czar, where religious .prejudice Is king their life Intoler.-able. It is the purpose of this meeting to arouse in the American public a sense- of righteous resentment -apatust the unspeakable outrages perpetrated upon these people in that 1 country by the combined forces of the "Russian .bureaucracy and the Russian orthodox church in the name of Christianity. . "From time to time when the public press escaping the hand of the Russian censor, brings the shocking report of revolting atrocities, committed on the life and virtue of the Jews In Russia, then enlightened humanity, thrilled and horrified, is seriously discussing the duty of the civilized nations to protest against the revival of the barbarism of the dark ages in our present civilization. Then Russia, frightened off by the light of public opinion, retreats behind her diplomacy of craft and subterfuge, making some sham show of irresponsibility for past crimes - and of some concern in the future safety, of the Jews. But', when' the world Is recovered from the shock, when the press ceases to portray the ! misery and wretchedness.of the victims, when the tide, of public feeling has receded, Russia resumes her human .treatment of the Jew with greater ■ cruelty." .. .-''":~v 4 ~. ''I' ■ Russia, according to Rabbi Fried; lander, is thus carrying on now. a system of persecution on the Jew that * aiiss at his utter extirpation. Said the rabbi: "The Jew, in his anguish, .does not appeal, to the nation's navy and army, he does not ask the world to interfere in his. behalf with the force of arms; the Jew is peace , ing and peace seeking. But he does appeal to the world's conscience, he invokes- the world sense of right and justice, and 'especially does he appeal to the American spirit, which rebels against" re- J ligious persecution, and which deprecates and condemns arbitrary suppression of the moral and Intellectual development of men by man, wherever such suppression is taking place. "In response to this appeal, acknowl' edged representatives and spokesmen of the .three highest professions, religion, education and law, have come J here to enlighten this meeting on the moral duty of one nation when the '.moral law .is flagrantly, . repeatedly, and designedly violated-by another na' tion, from the standpoint of our present civilization, and from the stand.-point of the American-spirit." PLEA FOR; LIBERTY William R. Davis made a strong , plea for liberty for the Jew in Russia- He told of the prominent place occupied by the Jew In this country and urged that the United States should insist that when he traveled in Russia he should receive full protection. He • said: The Jews in. this country possess the chief characteristics of manhood and womanhood. Such as financial ability, temperance, provision for the family, frugality, coupled with generosity in all real charities. There . is no such thing as the Hebrews becoming public charges, and as , citizens in their respective localities, they are a most law abiding class and are firm supporters of government policies making for stability. They do not engender riots or disturbances of the peace, and in their . home life there is no race where men are more generous to women, more considerate of the children, or where women are more faithful to their husbands and offspring/Because of these facts it seems incredible that there should be any place, even in- Russia, where these people should be treated ••with ignominy.' And yet, in Russia today, they are quartered off in specified territory almost as low as though they were cattle to be herded. Of course, the .United States alone can not "directly interfere with this policy, but we can protest and raise our, voices in human sympathy. And this country can also insist that any American citizen who ?°, e. s to. Russia shall be accorded his full rights, and If this is not done it Is the duty of this country to insist that these privileges be extended to every American, without discrimination and without race : prejudice. ANCIENT STANDARD MAINTAINED '. President Wheeler said: • Russia. is attempting to assert in the' full light of modern days- the standard of ancient conditions. It is presuming to maintain against all the tendencies of the times a state of one religion with a people of one blood. Those who are not of the standard blood and of the standard religion tend to suffer impairment of full standing as citizens. There are those who will say that, if Russia wishes to do this It nas-as a nation full right to try to do it. The. day is dawning, however. 'Wherein nations dare not arbitrarily do what seemeth alone ri themselves good • Nations -which join in the modern life of civilization will find themselves in one way or another compelled to accept the essential* modern standards of .justice. But even if Russia does not do It-for her own citizenship, she will be obliged to recognize the solidarity of American citizenship. And American .citizenship knows no difference between the bloods or the faiths brought over to it out of Europe. Here all the bloods -. and faiths of Europe are united and blended Into a single.citizenship, . It is the mission of America- among the nations to bring into full being the concept and the ideal of European man ■With the ripening of the years the American Idea must evangelize Europe Peoples who are united here ran -not contend there.. Peoples .who are honored here can i not be despised there. People who have rights here can not be naked of right;there.. - '.Rev. F.i L. Goodspeed said: • ' **' j We protest against the persecutions and Inhumanities practiced upon .the Jew In Russia on the . ground of „humanity, irrespective of nationality, con'ditlon or religion. 'If today the Russian Jew „hates the"government\.whichirobs .and (maltreats him, what wonder lis It? It is not human nature to Be' stripper] of home and rights and, yet to kiss the hand that unites and honor,the. government which plots' and' executes -such devilish -designs. As -a- matter of fact. -no nation that maltreated th» Jews ever escaped without paying the penalty. .

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 1911 OPEN AIR SCHOOL URGED BY DOCTOR Medical Director Points to the Fruitvale Experiment to Uphold Contention OAKLAND, March 15.—Dr. .V K. Foster, medical director of the school department, .. has recommended •to . the board of education ■ that the open air school room be extended. He cites the success of the' small school established in the annexed district at FrultvaUe, school Jii. 2.'^|-^- Statistics compiled by Doctor Foster show that the pupils attending the open air school not only reached a higher standard of physical development in the year's time, but in many cases excelled the pupils in the regular indoor classes in scholarship. In reporting the results observed, Doctor Foster said: "In the main school there were many p.upils who lost weight; in the open | air class; none. The average gain in the main school was 2.36 pounds; in I the open air school, 3.7 pounds, or 55 per. cent more than in the closed rooms. The outside class was composed of third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh grade pupils. "These figures show that all the grades .In the. outside class outstripped those on the inside. 'Their" treatment , wast not dlSTerent. They took the same lessons, no food of any kind was given them. The only reason for the extra gain was .the, plenty of good, fresh, pure air. ' - "The sentiment. in the class toward the open air. class has greatly changed and they are all enthusiastic advocates of 'fresh - air. Through the cold, wet weather they have stayed without complaint ;in the school, and no colds or sickness has resulted: 1 sincerely hope that the new schoolhouses will.be built with ' rooms so constructed that they will be practically open air rooms, and so that It -^ill be Impossible to close them entirely."
