Die Vollkische, organ of the ultra-nationalistic anti-Semitic Germans

The abolition of the Zionist policy in Palestine and the establishment
of an "independent national government" are the only steps which will
bring peace in Palestine, according to a cable sent by the {intestine Arab
executive to the Duke of Devonshire. The cable also declares that the
Arabs look upon the appointment of a special committee to investigate the
Palestine problem as a big step forward.

of America, in compliance with his offer made last year to duplicate $6,000
contributions to the movement in any one of the 12 regions into which the
United States is divided for Scout work. Eight of the regions having met
the offer, Mr. Schiff has sent checks to the proper authorities. He expresses!
the hope that other regions would soon meet the offer. Mr. Schiff is chair-
man of the national committee on organization and field work.

The indifference that is reported
to have been displayed throughout
the country towards the elections held
recently for delegates to the Jewish
Congress offers a death-blow to an-
other movement started for the unit-
ing of all elements in American Jew-
ry for the purpose of combined ac-
tion on their part on all problems
healing with our people. While work
for the congress is still being con-
tinued, with the original plans fn-r m-
eonvening the assembly on Oct. 9, the
idea underlying the movement has
fattest, and unfortunately so. While
during the first session of the con-
gress there were representatives of
practically every element in Ameri-
-an Jewry, the movement is today
-imposed mainly of the nationalistic-
illy inclines! Jews, with Eastern Eu-
ropean Jews in predominance. Those
who have watched the proceedings of
the last year's meetings of the con-1
?seas remember that its sessions were
similar to the Zionist conventions,
which, for thepast few years, have
been nothing more nor less than
"massmeetings" at which a popular
"aye" will carry any and every reso-
lution presented by the administra-
tino. Many of the delegates who at-
tend these conventions seem to find
them a means for good vacation and
pleasure trips, or there would have
been greater thought given to the de-
liberations, which maght have
brought much good had the decisions
reached at these conventions been

gresses have failed to accomplish the
object for which the movement was
started. The Jewish Congress has
failed miserably as a means for in-
viting all American Israel into is body

Through its inactivity of the past two
