LONDON—Explosive experts
of the British Home Office
studied Wednesday a home-
made bomb found outside a lux-
ury apartment in a development
in Dolphin Square where many
Jews and several Israelis live.
Efforts had been made to
suppress news of the finding
of the bomb which occurred
several days ago. Officials in-
dicated it appeared the bomb
had been placed by British
A resident of the project,
the largest block of luxury

Algeria Sets Confiscation Date
for Property of European Refugees

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

PARIS—Thousands of Jewish
refugees from Algeria now in
France are expected to be seri-
ously affected by an ultimatum
issued Tuesday by Algerian
authorities warning all refugees
to return in a month or face
possible loss of their. business
The statement of the Algerian
Provisional Executive said that
after that period Algerian au-
thorities would consider them-
selves "entitled to take all steps
necessary' to make the enter-
prises operate again.
Belaid Abdessalem, the Exec-
utive's commissioner for eco-
nomic affairs, told a press con-
ference in Algeria that the
measures would not "encroach"
on the property rights of the
refugees, however. He added
that the measures would .apply
also to those Europeans who re-
mained in Algeria but had
closed their plants and shops.
It was learned in Paris that
French officials approved the
ultimatum after receiving as-
surances that the step would
apply only to enterprises whose
revival was important for the
economic life of Algeria. Offi-
cial sources here sought to miti-
gate the unfavorable impression

of the ultimatum on refugees
who left businesses and prop-
erty behind and who feel they
cannot possibly return to the
war-torn country. The sources
said that Provisional Algerian
administratorrs would be named
to run the suspended enter-
prises only if their owners fail
to respond to the Algerian de-

He sewed his country under six" presidents

When President Theodore Roosevelt
named Oscar Straus the Secretary of
Commerce and Labor in 1906, it marked
the first time that an American Jew had
been appointed to the Cabinet. The choice
of Straus was singularly apt, for some
twenty years earlier he had been the first
Jew to be appointed an ambassador.
Oscar S. Straus began his forty-six
year career of public service when, as a
young lawyer, he served as secretary of
the committee to re-elect William R.
Grace Mayor of New York. Grace de-
feated his Tammany opponent and
Straus was On his way. In 1887, President
Cleveland appointed him U. S. Minister
to Turkey. Straus served in Turkey with
distinction, resigning when a new admini-
stration took office.
In the ensuing years, however, both
Presidents Harrison and McKinley drew
upon Straus' vast knowledge of world

affairs, the latter once again appointing
him Minister to Turkey. And President

Taft was subsequently to reappoint him
to that same post for the third time.
When Theodore Roosevelt took office,
one of his first official acts was to appoint'
Oscar Straus a member of the Permanent
Court of Arbitration at the 'Hagud.
Roosevelt had such a high opinion of
Straus that he made him a member of his
`•`kitchen cabinet." One day, in 1906, -at
the White House, Roosevelt said, "I
want you to become a member of my
Cabinet. I have a very high estimate of
your character, your judgment and your
ability." Straus was appointed Secretary
of Commerce and Labor.
Perhaps the high point of Straus'
career came after the first World War,
when he worked intimately with Presi-
dent Wilson to create the - Leaguer of
Nations. Wilson paid him the unusual

compliment of writing, "I want to take
the opportunity to say how valuable in
every way your support and enthusiasm
for the League of Nations has been."
