Try and Stop Me


A BEGGAR KNOCKED on the door of a New England
.C3- farmhouse, whining that he hadn't eaten for two days.
The lady of the house marched him straight to the wood-
shed where there was a
pile of uncut lumber. "Do
you see that wood?" she
asked. "Yeah," whimper..
ed the beggar. "I seen it."
"You should say, 'I saw
it,"' the New England
matron reproved him.
The beggar straightened

Katz Describes Early
Zionist Activities Here

Editor, The Jewish News:
I have read with a great deal
of interest the story in last week's
issue of The Jewish News about
the Kadimah Zionist Society which
was organized in Detroit in 1908.
As you suspected, however, this
was not the first Zionist group
in Detroit. The beginnings of Zion-
ist activities in our city go back
to 1897 when the American Fed-
eration of Zionists (now the Zion-
ist Organization of America) came
into being. In that year an organ-
ization called the United Zionists
of Detroit was organized. I am
reproducing below an article which
appeared in the Oct. 9, 1903, is-
sue of the Jewish American, De-
troit's first English-Jewish weekly.

are the works of French artist
Brigette Coudrain, well known for
her print-making and book illus-
tration. Working iii colored aqua-
tints of biomorphic forms and mi-
niatures seldom exceeding a two
inch square, her style is remini-
scent of the medieval illuminators
in its detailed precision. Following
the same pattern of subject mat-
ter as Chagall, her work includes
some commentaries on love, illus-
trations of the Old Testament, the
fables of Fontaine, and Daphnis
and Chloe. This is the first time a
collection of her work has appeal-
ed in this country.
