Workmen's Circle Adopts 6-Point Personal Code on Equality

NEW YORK, (JTA) — A six-
point "personal code" through
which every individual can "con-
tribute significantly to the
achievement of equal rights and
equal opportunities for all Amer-
icans" was adopted by the na-
tional board of the Workmen's
Circle, a Jewish fraternal and
cultural organization represent-
ing 65,000 members in 32 states,
at a meeting at the Hotel Astor.
The code asks members of
the Workmen's Circle—many of
whom live in the South — to
bring their personal pressure to
bear against discrimination, if
it exists, in the stores in which
they shop, in the banks which
they keep their accounts, in
their unions, businesses or pro-
fessions, in community organiza-
tion, in their neighborhoods and
in their own homes and social

l of the year which means that for
contacts.
Jacob T. Zukerman, New York the next twelve months at least
attorney and social worker, who our 540 branches, from New
is president of the Workmen's York to California, will be en-
Circle, said that the board meet- couraged to participate in civic
ing at the Astor had voted to rights activities on an organized
make civil rights "our project and sustained basis."

Repelling Theme
in Simckes' 7
Days Mourning'

L. S. Simckes, a Harvard
honor graduate who has taught
English and is now working on
his doctorate, who mastered
Hebrew in Israel and translated
stories by S. Y. Agnon, causes
the reviewer to wonder why he
had to be so morose as to pro-
duce a novel like "Seven Days
of Mourning," just published
by Random House.
The characters in this story
are, collectively, so vulgar, so
repulsive; there is so much
more hatred than even an iota
of kindness in the dealings
among the constantly quarreling
Shimanskys, that one wonders
what a writer hopes to accom-
plish with a theme like Simckes'.
Even the doctor, Vossen
Gleich, arouses revulsion. The
manner in which Mrs. Shiman-
sky treats her husband—often
to a point of starving him, as
he frequently walks around with
his pants off—does not give the
impression of normalcy.
Are there really such people,
anywhere, not only among Jews,
who, in a period of mourning,
act so beastly?
Simckes writes excellently.
But why such a theme? What
a pity that so able a writer
could not produce a more nat-
ural product, a less repelling
set of characters, a story with
a semblance of kindness.
—P. S.
