upon to .give help to Romanian

refugees who came to Detroit
in large numbers.
By the turn of the century,
the UJC was publishing names
of subscribers to its annual col-
lection in the Jewish American.
In 1901, a dispensary for in-
digent sick was added to UJC
services. In 1902, the Charities
hired its first full-time profes-
sional director. Henry Butzel,
the chairman of its real estate
committee, bought land for a
permanent Charities building on
East Vernor, which was then
called High Street.
The Hannah Schloss Building

Goldmann Hits
`Political Char ges
Against WZO

Nahum Goldmann, president of
the World Zionist Organization,
addressing the annual dinner of
the Jewish' Reconstructionist
Foundation, recently, deplored
the fears of some groups— of
joining the World Zionist Or-
ganization because they con-
sidered it a political movement.
He termed such fears "mean-
ingless and unfounded" and de-
clared that the only "political"
work being done by the Zionist
movement was "to help support,
in certain situations, demands
and interests of Israel." He
quickly noted, however, that
"the so-called non-Zionist groups
are doing just the same."
Dr. Mordecai M. Kaplan,

founder of the Reconstruction-
ist movement, who sought
affiliation of the United Syna-
gogue of America with the

World Zionist Movement, an-
nounced that he would seek to
have the Recons•tru-ctionist
movement join the WZO.
Dr. Kaplan declared that until
a century ago, Zionism was "an
integral part of Judaism." He
asserted that "insofar as the
existing synagogue movements
have become accustomed to
treat the restoration of the land
of Israel as outside the purview
of their religious . activities,
Judaism has been deprived of
the main source of its vitality
and viability, namely the gen-
erative and self-renewing po-
tency of Jewish peoplehood."
Expressing belief that there
was no likelihood that the
United Synagogue of America
would federate with the World
