Verse for the Week
The days of our years are three-
score years and ten; and if by
reason of strength they be four-
score years, yet is their strength
labour and sorrow.--Psalms 90:10

solve their own problems." Interviewed by this writer (August, 1934)
he said his views were based on those of the German Jews themselves,
and also on statements made to him by Cardinal Faulhaber.
The same lies are spread about us so often, the Nazi terminology
is repeated by so many in. so many countries, that its expose often
becomes necessary even 30 years after the Hitler venom began to
gain momentum. It certainly gained ground when responsible news-
papermen gave them credence. Regretfully, it happens even in our
.own time.
Thus, at every step, one had to be careful at that time—as one
also should be today lest complacency drag us to destruction— not to
permit a single utterance that shaked and misrepresented facts to
gain credence.

Historic Papers

REHOVOTH, Israel — Copies of
several thousand important letters
and other documents relating to
Middle East political develop-
ments in 1918-1919, during and
after the First World War, have
just been received by the Weiz-
Mann Archives at Rehovoth,
Meyer Weisgal, chairman of the
trustees- of the Archives, stated
that the existence of theSe papers
was only recently discovered.
Steps were immediately taken to
obtain microfilm and photostat
Mies of the documents. - •
Examination of the material has
brought to light some remarkable
documents, -Weisgal stated.
It is now revealed for the first
time that the first original draft
of the famed agreement be-
tween Emir Feisal of Hedjaz
(later first. King of Iraq) and
Dr. Chaim Weizmann, signed in
London, Jan. 3, 1919, was in the
handwriting of Simon Marks
(later Lork Marks of Brough-
The draft was written in London
in December 1918. Marks was
then secretary of the Zionist Cen-
tral Office, which was located in
the Empire Building in Picadilly.
Col. T. E. Lawrence acted as the
Emir Feisal's aide.
There are also most illuminat-
ing reports on the Weizmann-Fei-
sal " meeting at Wahaida (near
Ma'an) in June 1918, among them,
Feisars letter In Arabic.
Other papers received at Reho-
voth come from the archives of
Sir Reginald Wingate, British High
Commissioner in Egypt during the
First World War years; :Briga-
dier-General Sir Gilbert Clayton,
Chief Political Officer with the
Egyptian Expeditionary Forces
led by General Allenby and later
vil. Secretary to the Palestine
ministration in the 1920's;
ajor W. G. A. Ormsby G o r e,
aison officer with the Zionist
Commission, 1918, and British
Colonial Secretary in the 1930?s;
Sir Mark Sykes, who coordinated
Middle East Affairs in the Foreign
Office, London; Miss Gertrude
Bell, noted Englishwoman • ex-
plorer of Arabia; Col. P. Joyce;
1% E. Lawrence; and H. St. John
Philby among others. There are
also reports by Israel Sieff (now

secretary of the Zionist Commis-
sion, 1918-19.
The. acquisitions include re-
ports and surveys prepared for
the Arab Bureau in Cairo direct-
ed by Capt. D. G. Hogarth, R.N.,
and by the. British Political In-
telligence authorities on Zionism
And the so-called "Arab Revolt."
A Manifesto to the Islamic
World, signed by Lenin and
Stalin on Jan. 20, 1818, is among
the documents received.
'Weisgal added that the papers
will be of enormous value in shed-
ding new light on the British at-
titude towards the Zionist move-
ment, the proposed division of the
Middle East into spheres of in-
fluence among the Allied Powers
and the early cleavage between
Britian and France in the Middle
East during the last war and the
period of the Zionist Commission

Dearborn Independent experience, the Ford sins, the Coughlin outrages.
Indeed, we respect and - admire the Fords of our time. They are
gaining glory for. their name, they are negating every destructive
aspect of past history,
But once in a while the "International Jew" pamphlets with all
the lies of that same past era re-emerge and those who reprint them
do not hesitate to re-insert the Ford imprmiatur. The Fords don't like
it. Neither do we. We have a new generation to deal with—a genera-
tion that knew not the Hamans of the first half of this century, and if
new Hamans 'should arise those they seek to destioy must know the
experience of their ancestors to be able to tackle the attackers.
It's all part of the resistance. One must resist adversaries. The
condemnations of many in our generation who are accused of not
having resisted threats—whether they were from Berehtesgaden or
Royal Oak or Dearborn— are not fully justified. They could become
justifiable if we fail to prepare future generations to uphold libertarian
principles. That's . why- that which is engraved in history with the blood
of our people can not be erased—and therefore won't be erased.
