Many of our best Jewish actors and

which portray the Jews in the most
disparaging manner, so that they can
win the praise of their audiences and
reap large financial gains, little
dreaming how much harm they are
doing to the Jewish cause, or if they
do think about it they are indifferent
as long as they are in the limelight.

have the Jewish actors and actresses
been so duty bound to help their suf-

that they will.
Without a doubt, our Jewish actors,
actresses and singers, with their su-

do much that would awaken within
the hearts of the American pe o ple a
keen sympathy for those unfortunate
sufferers whose only crime is being
true and loyal Jews.

degree in protecting the rights of immigrants and prospective

We are told that not less than $80,000 sent by Detroit rela-

That the work of the society may go forward unimpeded,
it is necessary that it be generously supported by our people
throughout the country. Very shortly, it is proposed that a I

The coming to Detroit this week of the eminent gentlemen

opportunity of reiterating what has frequently been said in
