end of the article notes that Glat-
stein's "opinions" have often called
forth "serious disagreements" on
the part of the magazine but that

originally in the Labor Zionist
magazine Kemfer, published in
New York. Its reprinting in the
June issue of Sovietish Heim-
land was in connection with the
50th anniversary of Sholom
Aleichem's death. In addition to
