So Patrick Henry got up, red
headed Patrick Henry, and
thundered, "Caesar had his
Brutus, Charles I his Cromwell,
let George III profit by their
example."
"Treason, Treason," shouted
members of the Virginia legis-
lature.
"If that be treason, make the
most of it," said Henry.
A shiver went through the
Virginia legislature. A shiver
through all America.
All right, so Patrick Henry
was a brave man, but what has
that got to do with Israel's
birthday.
Well, the other day Eliahu
Elath, the new President of the
Hebrew University in Jeru-
salem, told how.
Elath told how he had come
in the first Israeli delegation
to the United Nations, just after
the independence of the state of
Israel was proclaimed. He went
to see General Marshall, who
had become Mr. Truman's Sec-
retary of State.
Marshall didn't seem enthusi-
astic about Israel. He showed
Elath a map of the Near East.
"Look," he said, "all these Arab
nations. How can you fight
them?"
"Yes, that's so," said Elath,
"but once there was a great
American, Patrick Henry and
he said, 'Give me liberty or
give me death' and that's the
way we of Israel feel."
Secretary Marshall looked up.
He didn't say anything.
Some time after when the
Israelis had won the war, Elath
was appointed Israel's Ambassa-
dor to the United States and he
went to see Secretary Marshall
to present his credentials. "You
know," said Marshall to him,
"I have thought many times
of what you said."
Marshall knew all about Pat-
rick Henry. In his mind he
must have recalled the pan-
orama of the American Revolu-
tion and he must have recog-
nized many similarities between
the scene in America in 1776
and the scene in Israel in 1948.
On all sides, we must remem-
ber there were many in
America who were saying that
it was suicidal for America to
oppose England. Washington at
Boston said he had not enough
soldiers. to fight with and too
many to run away. There was
a shortage of the weapons of
war. On the other side was
Britain then the most powerful
of all military forces and
Britain had hired also a for-
midable army of German mer-

cenaries to help her in the
fight. And there were plenty
of Tories in America too, those
who took the British side and
even some of those who had
first been aggressive, like Dick-
inson in Pennsylvania, later got
cold feet.
It was against this b a ck-
ground that Patrick Henry rose
in the Virginia legislature and
what did he say then?
"They tell us, sir, that we are
weak, unable to cope with so
formidable an adversary . . .
Shall we acquire strength by
lying supinely on our backs?
The war is not to the strong
alone . . . It is to the vigilant,
the active, the brave . . . God
will raise us friends to fight
our battles for us . .. Besides,
sir, we have no election. If we
were base enough to desire it,
it is now too late . . . I know
not what others may say, but
as for me, Give me liberty or
give me death."
Secretary Marshall must have
thought about all this. America
was then too, a big country,
rich in natural resources, but it
had money troubles too. France
helped with money, but it was
not enough. The story goes that
one day on Yom Kippur, they
called Hdym Salomon from the
synagogue, so desperate was the
findncial situation. He was the
leading salesman of American
bonds at the time. I suppose a
good Jew like him today would
be selling Israel bonds. Come
to think of it, until compara-
tively recent times it was Euro-
pean capital which was mostly
used for American develop-
ment.

140 French. Catholics
Guests of Jewish Body
NEW YORK, (JTA)—A group
of 140 French Catholics currently
touring this country, were given
a full day of orientation on Jew-
ish institutions and community
life in New York by the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee.
While this group is in the
United States primarily to study
the workings of the Catholic
laity, they spent a day at AJC's
Institute of Human Relations for
the briefing session on group
life of Jews and Jewish religious
and cultural institutions. Speak-
ers included Rabbi Marc Tan-
nenbaum, head of the Inter-
religious Affairs Department;
Marshall Sklare, director of the
Scientific Research Department;
and Milton Himmelfarb, editor of
the American Jewish Year Book.

Weightlifting Body
Boycotts Asian Games
LONDON, (JTA)—A warning
from the International Weight-
lifting Federation to its mem-
bers to boycott the fourth Asian
Games on penalty of suspension
was the latest development in
the reactions of the sport world
to Indonesia's barring of an Is-
raeli team from the Games, it
was reported here from Jakarta.
Clarence Johnson, president of
the weightlifters, said at a meet-
ing of the Asia Weightlifting
Federation that the international
group would not issue a permit
for members to participate in
the Asian Games because of the
exclusion of Israel and National-
ist China. He said any member
who ignored the ban faced a
two-year suspension.
Before the weightlifting an-
nouncement, t h e International
Amateur Athletic Federati on
withdrew official sanction for the
Asian Games.

Polish Jewry's Protector
Baruch Yavan, an 18th cen-
tury Polish financier, frequent-
ly used his influence in the Pol-
ish court for the benefit of the
Polish Jewry. He is credited
with having protected his fel-
low Jews from a number of anti-
Semitic decrees promulgated by
the Archbishop of Kamenetz-
Podolsk, who ordered all copies
of the Talmud confiscated in
1757.

Situation'
to Leonard Homer 'Rocky
Albert Einstein was once

asked what kind of weapons
would be used in World War

III.

"I don't know," he answered.
"I don't know what they are
developing, because things are
progressing so rapidly, but I
can tell you what they'll use in
the fourth world war. They'll
use rocks."
