Chicago Professor
Speaks On Religion 1
Christianity began as a Jewish re-
form movement, addressed to both'
the common classes and to the in-.
tellectuals, Prof. Edwin E. Aubrey
of the University of Chicago said ast
night in an address at Lane Hall.
Christianity saved itself from be-
coming simply another of the count-
less religions of the Roman Empire
by being monotheistic, he believes.
Yet, as it preserved its monotheism
by insistence on the unity of three
persons, it preserved a separation by
insistence on the Trinity, Professor
Aubrey said.
As Christianity became more and
more popular, some tried to save it
from weakening infiltrations by ?.s-
ceticism; this became the monastic
movement he continued.

New British Plans
RaiseBNazi Wrath;
May Recall Env


Jewish Leaders Acclai
Rehabilitatiob Propose
Fear German Repris
Britain Wants U.S.
To Provide Funa

(By Associated Press)
Two British thrusts at Germany's
treatment of Jews yesterday aroused
the ire of Adolf Hitler and apparent-
ly shoved into a deep pigeonhole
Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's
efforts to make peace with the Ger-
man Fuehrer.
First, the British Prime Minister
announced plans to create havens for
Jewish refugees in Africa and British
Guiana. The House of Commons fol-
lowed this up by adopting with rare
unanimity a motion deploring meas-
ures against Jews in Germany.
Berlin May Recall Envoy
Unconfirmed reports in London
said Hitler might recall his Ambas-
sador to the Court of St. James's as
an expression of his anger. Chamber-
lain's plan to send Jewish refugees
to Tanganyika was regarded in Ber-
lin as a "plot" to avoid returning that
war-lost colony to Germany.
In Berlin, Germans and Jews alike
were amazed at the British coloniza-
tion plan. There was talk in the Ger-
man capital that Hitler might sum-
mon the Reichstag to protest impres-
sively against allotting former Ger-
man territory to Jews.
Jewish leaders first acclaimed as
"wonderful" Chamberlain's announce-
ment, then on second thought focused
attention on the problem of German
opposition to their going to the form-
er German colony. One leader said
the Nazis already had declared no
visas would be issued Jews seeking to
go to Tanganyika or any other former
German colonial possession.
Crowds Protest In U.S.
In the United States, a capacity
crowd of 20,000 gathered in New
York's Madison Square Garden and
wildly cheered a proposal for a boy-
cott of German goods.
,Remote Carpatho-Ukraine (Ruth-
enia), which Hungary wants to an-
nex, fast was becoming a major Euro-
pean trouble spot. Hungary strength-
ened her military forces to "forestall
border incidents" as undercover nego-
tiations for Czechoslovakia's eastern
tilx grew in intensity.
Prague Loses And Gains
This situation brought fresh com-
plications to the Prague government
which yesterday lost 106 more small,
villages with 60,000 inhabitants but
gained 37 other villages through a
final boundary fixed with Germany
by the International Commission set
up by the Munich Accord.
In France, sources close to Premier
Daladier said he had formulated
s a strongly authoritarian plan in order
. to combat a growing strike movement
and to assure success of the govern-
ment's economic program. The plan
was reported to include dissolution
- of the French Chamber of Deputies.


Similarities Of Totalitarian States
Shown By Professor Dickinson


Britain Offers Jews
South African Haven

Any united front of democratic na-
tions with Soviet Russia and the
Communist Party is based on mere;
political expediency rather than
matching ideologies, in the opinion
of Prof. Z. C. Dickinson of the econ-
omics department.
Commenting on the growing tend-
ency to lump Russia with the world's
democracies in opposition to fascism,
Professor Dickinson pointed out that
similar methods characterize all tot-
alitarian states, including Commun-
ist Russia, Nazi Germany, Fascist
Italy and Japan. These methods are
generally opposed to democracy in
spite of Soviet claims that their con-
stitution i4 the world's most demo-
cratic, he said.
Most national collective regimes
today have in practice involved an
extreme pyramid of authority with
some form of dictatorship at the top
wielding arbitrary power, he declared.
Whether this authoritarian regime is
termed fascism or Communism, its
political manifestations are much the
same. They include a uni-party set-
up, intolerance of dissenters, and a

Stalin has executed more Jews than
Hitler, as Walter Duranty is reported
to have said, it is only because he has
shot more people," Professor Dickin-
son declared. But in both cases the
resort to physical force, oppression
of civil liberties and confiscation of
property was essentially the same.
Among evidences of this similarit"
of tactics employed by Communist
and fascist nations in their fight
against democracy is the remark by
John Strachey, communist writer, in
his recent book "The Coming Struggle
for Power," Professor Dickinson said.
Strachey admits that Communist re-
sort to force inspired a similar re-
sort to force by fascist states. The
fact that Mussolini himself was a
Syndicalist before the war indicates
this, he said.
Although this cooperation "against
war and fascism," between Commun-
ists and democratic anti-Commun-
ists is uncertain as to extent and dur-
ation, Prof. Dickinson did not imply
that there are no important common
purposes among all anti-fascists at
the present time. Soviet Russia is
now a bulwark against Nazi eastward

Party Losses
Confers With Democrats
On 1940_Prospects
NEW YORK, Nov. 21.-(,P)-The
Democratic leadership from 21 eas-
tern and southern states, looking to-
ward the 1940 presidential struggle,
took counsel today with National
Chairman James A. Farley over the
party's position in the light of its
losses in the Nov. 8 elections.
In a series of private conferences,
which he said were designed in part
to "clear up any misunderstandings
within -the Party that may exist,"
Farley spent most of the day with his
visitors, who had been called here.
He received them as state delega-
tions, one at a time. In answer to
a direct question as to whether any
effort had been made to test possible
sentiment for a third term nomina-
