The principle "art for art"
has been cast aside. All the
totalitarian states, Italy,
Germany and Soviet Rus-
sia, made music part of the
political education of the
masses. Modern music in
the West is considered an
expression of the moods of
the times and music is
neither created nor per-
formed in a social vacuum.
Richard Wagner knew
this. He composed his lyrics
and music in order to ex-
press the yearnings of the
Germans for something
superhuman and, at the
same time, to mold them
into a unified nation to
which Jews could not be-
long. Wagner created that
kind of intellectual under-
pinnings for the Third Re-
ich. Nazism without
Wagner is simply unthink-
able. It was Hitler's kind of
music — bombastic, de-
structive, debasing.
Wagner's concept of fire
and flames, destruction and
desecration is completely
alien to Jewish thought and
teachings. For the Jew the
end of the world can never
come.
Sure, when Wagner's
music was in vogue, Jews
were among his ardent
followers. They de-
veloped a strange under-
standing and apprecia-
tion for this new accumu-
lation of sound. Running
after everything that is
new, some of them felt so
deeply for his mystical
figures that they named
their sons Siegfried or
gave them other names
straight out of Wagner's
perceptions.
Only a few months ago, at
the Vienna Opera, a Jewish
professor went on stage and
tore an anti-Wagner article
written by another Jewish
professor into a thousand

Campus Caravan

NEW YORK — Five
members of the North
American Jewish Students
Network recently com-
pleted a month-long, eight-
state, 6,000 mile tour of
small campuses to meet
with unaffiliated Jews.
The group visited schools
-in Alabama, North and
South Carolina, Georgia,
Tennessee, Kentucky, Vir-
ginia and Ohio.

pieces. The audience went
wild and could not applaud
enough.
If emotions run that high,
we know we are in trouble.
The question remains• only
whether self-respect and
conscious living as a Jew
will win out. It is an uphill
fight.

ternational Center July
11-13. The conference is
being organized, the Spe-
cial Committee an-
nounced, "in cooperation
with the Afro-Asian
Peoples' Solidarity
Organization, the Organ-
ization of African Trade
Union Unity and the
World Peace Council."
Blum said that the Spe-
cial Committee did not issue
a report on the financial as-
pects of the upcoming con-
ference as the rules of the
UN require, and it is also
illegal because it lacks Gen-
eral Assembly authoriza-
tion.
He accused the Special
Committee of bias against
Israel, charging that many

of the 18 members of the
committee represent coun-
tries that trade with South
Africa on a much larger
scale than Israel. He said
that the decision to hold the
conference was "the height
of its (the committee's)
anti-Israel campaign."
"The entire resolution is a
travesty," Blum said. "We
demand that this illegal de-
cision of the Special Com-
mittee on Apartheid be re-
scinded forthwith."

A college census in the
U.S. conducted by Bnai
Brith in 1939 showed that
Jews made up 21 percent of
the student population in
colleges with 5,000 or more
students. Jews were only
2.5 percent of the student
enrollment of colleges with
1,000 students or less.
