Half of 300 American Stu-
dents Are Jews; Phila-

VIENNA.— (J. T. A.) —The
American Minister to Austria, G.
B. Stockton, informed the Ameri-
can authorities that American stu-
dents would leave Austria if new
excesses occur at the University of
The protest of the American
Legation coupled with that of the
protests of the envoys of Poland,
Rumania, Bulgaria and Yugosla-
via, the number of whose nationals
injured is estimated at 30, includ-
ing non-Jews who appeared Semi-
tic, has caused the Austrian gm-
ernment in consultation with the
police authorities, to increase mea-
sures fo rthe protection of stu-
dents at the university.
The Austrian authorities have
decided to introduce on the univer-
laity campus special plain :Ionics po•
lice, wearing police badges, who
are to be subject to the joint au-
thority of the rector and the police
praesidium. To them will be en-
trusted the duty of maintaining
pence, and of arresting such dis-
turbers as are evident.
300 Americas Students.
If these measures prove insuffi-
cient, the autonomy of the univer-
sity will be withdrawn temporarily
and the police will be charged with
maintaining order in the buildings.
The Polish ambassador in Aus-
tria went so far in his protest, it
is learned, as to reserve the right
to claim compensation from the
Austrian government for Polish na-
tionals attacked.
The Nazi statistics on the num-
ber of American students at the
university, which the Nazis set at
120, are false.
There are a total of 390 Arm ri-
can students at the university of
whom 200 are specializing in var-
ious subjects. The Jews constitute
approximately 50 per cent of the
American body.
The four Americana injured dur-
ing the attacks prefer that their
names be not divulged, particularly
since the injuries are not serious.

Stockton'. Assurances.

A delegation of 25 American
students, including non-Jews, rep-
resenting the American student
body at the University of Vienna
visited the Americaa minister, G.
B. Stockton, to lean whether it
is advisable for them to return to
the United States, in view of the
anti-Semitic disturbances or wheth-

to remain aloof from AuStrian pol-

ister said, and the students should
immediately leave the university
The meeting with the Americ
minister was followed by a stormy
session where the delegation report-
ed to the American student body
the results of the interview.
A section of the student body
expressed dissatisfaction with the
results of the interviews between
the American minister and the

at 28th Annual Meeting

Preceded by a dinner served to
several hundred by the Temple
Sisterhood, the eighty-second an-
nual meeting of Congregation


Beth El took place in the Brown
Memorial Chapel last Sunday
The reports submitted by the
officers and rabbis of the congre-
gation all breathed a highly op-
timistic spirit and indicated that
both financially and spiritually,
Congregation Beth El today is in
a most enviable condition. De-
spite the pressure of times, the
reports indicated not only a bal-
anced budget for the coming year,
but showed that the cash income
of the congregation during the
year just closed practically
equalled the cash expenditures.
This was accomplished by the ut-
most economy on the part of the
officers.and the co-operation. that
was received from every group
within the congregation.

All-Jewish Chorus Choir.

Although the actual income of
the congregation during the past
two years has decreased, not a
single essential activity of the
congregation has had to be cur-
tailed, and it was shown in re-
ports that a number of new phases
of work have been undertaken
and that all are going forward
successively. Particular praise
was given to the splendid all-
Jewish chorus choir which, under
the direction of George Galvani,
has supplanted the former pro-
fessional quartet. It is agreed on
every side that never has the
Temple music been of such a high
order as it is today, permeated
as it is by the Jewish spirit, every
participant in the musical service
being now a worshiper with the
congregation itself.
The appreciation of the officers
and members was also expressed
to the faculty of the Temple Re-
ligious School, which for the time

The services begin at 10:45

spectacle of civic loyalty, public
spirit and a willingness to serve
the less fortunate people of the
city was presented during the
week in the money-raising cam•
paign of the Community Fund.
With the launching of the gen-
eral campaign, Monday, more than
3000 men and women were con-
tributing their time for the work
of soliciting pledges to maintain
the 80 social agencies which min-

otherwise needy of the metropoli-

There were three sections of
the year's campaign in operation,
the industrial, office building and
general division. While the drive
of the special gifts section, which
is to raise $2,100,000, is sched-
uled to open Nov. 14, it was prac-

his division chairmen is Mrs. S. R.

the crew of which she is captain
was manife1ted at the Monday


luncheon when she announced
pledges totaling $3,632 before the
formal start of the canvass.
The general campaign is cov-

nounces that the solicitation is
going successfully, and he expects
to be able to finish his job of
raising $252,000 by Nov. 10, the
day his work is scheduled to end.
The industrial division, which
was the first to start soliciting, has
extended its campaign, which was
to have ended a week ago, and no

Unpopular With Jews,
Denied Political Post

LONDON.—(J. T. A.)—The
failure of Sir John Hope Simp-
son to secure the High Com-
misionership of Danzig, in suc-
cession to the late High Com-
missioner, Gravina, is due to
his unpopularity with the Jews,
the Evening Standard reports.
The paper states that Sir
John's report on Palestine, as
special investigator for the
British government, has antag-
onized the Jewish world. Since
there are more Jews in Poland
than in any other country at
present, Sir John Simpson's ap-
pointment failed to materialize.
Sir John will return to China
to continue his relief work.


HODS for Adjustment.

The Jewish Agency points out
that Jewish public opinion is once
again experiencing the disappoint-
ment which had been somewhat
allayed by the letter of Prime
Minister MacDonald to Dr. Chaim
Weizmann, because the under-
takings given in the letter which
had a direct bearing upon the
progress of Jewish work in Pales-
tine were not implemented in such
a way as to leave their mark upon
the practice of the Palestine Ad-
The communication expresses
the hope that the matter will be
adjusted in the near future and
that a policy will be worked out
which may be regarded as con-
sonant with the assurances con•
tamed on the subject in the Prime
Minister's letter.
At the same time, the communi-
cation points out that the Coun-
cil.of the Jewish Agency believes
that the letter of ('rime Minister
MacDonald to Dr. Weizmann "is
not a complete statement of pol-
icy and also contains reservations
which afford grounds for appre-
hension. In these respects the
Council looks to His Majesty's
Government to reach a satisfac-
tory settlement with the Jewish
Agency in the spirit of the Man-
e e.

Inspired by national leaders in addresses during the
