The Jewries of Europe will
offer the lives.
You, Jews of America, must
offer the gold.
Forty centuries of history
close with this question. Will
you, Jews of America, redeem
the Holy Land?
The promise that was made
four thousand years ago is to
be fulfilled through you, or is
to remain unfulfilled.
You are the guardians of
Jewish history today. With you
Jewish history ends, or
through you it begins a new
and glorious chapter.

Forty centuries of history
are watching you today. The
far-off generations look to you
out of the twilight of the past.
The warriors and prophets
and teachers of ancient-
Judaea are watching you. The
martyrs of Spain and Poland
and Russia, they who died that
our people might live, are
watching you. The young
heroes who fell on a hundred
fields in the great war are
watching you. The victims of a
hundred pogroms, men and
women and children, are
watching you.
In the eyes of all of them
there is a single question: •
"Will the land of our
Fathers be restored to our
people or have we lived and
died in vain?"
Application of this expressive
appeal to the present needs is cer-
tainly rational. It retains an his-
toric message. It has a lesson for
the generations. It brings to light
again the genius of a great writer
who was among the most eminent
Jewish libertarians and Zionists.
Unmatched in passion, filled
with so much feeling and appeals
to justice, there is very little to
match the genius of Maurice
Samuel in this deeply-moving ad-
dress to the Jewish people to act in
its own behalf.
Therefore, the recapitulation in
the appeals of the past, applying
them to the present. They prove
that repetition can be valuable.
Reviving the pioneering appeals

to justice can be creative and
hopefully will bring proper re-
sults.

Endorsers in 1931

It is interesting to recall those
listed as endorsers of the 1931 Al-
lied Jewish Campaign, referred to
in the reproduced headline. They
were, among others, Governor
Wilbur M. Bricker, Mayor Frank
Murphy, Superintendent of
Schools Frank Cody and many
others.
Of interest also is the manner in
which the Campaign was con-
ducted here at the time. Commo-
dore Aaron Deroy was the 1931
Campaign chairman.
Mrs. Henry Wineman headed a
newly organized women's division
of the drive _ .
Walker Outdoor Advertising
Co. donated five street billboards
to the Campaign.
It apparently was necessary
to have speaker volunteers to

Israel Himelhoch

bring the Allied Jewish Cam-
paign message to Detroit Jewry.
Therefore, Speakers Bureau
Bulletins were issued periodi-
cally. The committee recorded on
these b _ ulletins in that year con-
sisted of: Louis S. Cogane, chair-
man; Dr. Alvin D. Hersch and
Nathaniel H. Goldstick, associate
chairmen; Mrs. Philip H. Broudo,
secretary.
What the bulletins did not
state was that they were prepared
by a public relations committee of
which Israel Himelhoch was
chairman and it included Jake
Albert, Clifford Epstein, Philip
Adler and this commentator.

humanitarian and philanthropic
tradition of the Jewish commu-
nity. There is also the cry for help
from the politically, socially and
economically oppressed European
Jewries. There are a score or more
American Jewish causes minis-
tering to the spiritual, physical
and social wants of our people.
And there is included in the
drive the appeal for Palestine. In
the cause of this, the greatest ro-
mance of modern times, is
enlisted the pioneering spirit of
the ancient Jewish people, and
only men "with souls so dead" that
every bit of romance and idealism
has died in their hearts can possi-
bly turn a deaf ear to the work for
the upbuilding of the Jewish na-
tional hearth. Perhaps emphasis

will be lent to the appeal for
Palestine by quoting Dr. Julian
Morgenstern, president of He-
brew Union College of Cincinnati
and leader among the non-
Zionists of this country, who
stated last week:
"Palestine today, in its larger
aspect, has ceased to be a Zionist
question. It has become an all
Jewish question. As a loyal' Jew,
and feeling at one with my Jewish
brethern all over the world, and
without reducing by one penny
my support of all other worthy
movements, I am, this year, giv-
ing more than ever before to the
cause of Palestine. I do this out of
strong conviction; and I challenge
all my fellow Jews, Zionists and
anti-Zionists, to do the same."
