Jewish Issues
Iewisohn To Talk Sunday
On Anti-Semitism Rise,
Solution Of Problems
The answer to the Jewish question
will be discussed by Ludwig Lewisohn,
author of "Upstream," the "Island
Within" and many other books, at
8:15 p.m. Sunday at the Rackham
Auditorium under the auspices of the
Hillel Foundation.
In his talk Lewisohn will attempt
to tell why there is a perceptible rise
of anti-semitism, even in America,
why the Jewish people can find no
peace in the dispersion and who is at
fault, or if the difficulty is an in-
herent one that can be removed oply
by a sociological and creative act.
Lewisohn, who is considered by
many as the most famous Jewish
American author of the day, will be
honored at a dinner at 6:30 p.m. at
the Union and may also speak at the
Sunday morning Reform Services,
Martin Dworkis, '40, chairmanof
the Hillel Forum Committee, an-
nounced yesterday.
Lewisohn spoke here two years ago
to an audience of over 1,800 at Hill
Auditorium and then addressed the
largest crowd ever to jam the Foun-
dation on any occasion. Besides be-
ing the author of many novels and
anthologies, he is very active in
Zionism and is honorary secretary of
the American Zionist Organization.
Born in 1882 in Berlin, Lewisohn
came to this country at the age of
eight and grew up in Charleston, S.C.
and received his master's degree from
the College of Charleston at the early
age of 19. A few years later he won
a similar degree from Columbia Uni-
versity.
He began writing editorial copy for
various New York magazines and
publishing houses and later accepted
a post at the University of Wiscon-
sin. He remained -there until 1919
when he returned to New York be-
coming first, the drama editor and
then an associate editor of the Nation.

Michigan MascotTypifies Team

Although Michigan's new mascot
spends most of his time inside the
enclosure in his pen, he typifies the
football team which he serves as
mascot, Karl E. Goellener, Grad, who
has charge of animals in the museum,
told an inquirer.
The Wolverine, which after the
recent death of the badger was
placed in the outside cage behind the
Museums, is "brave when cornered,"
said Goellener, "but not viscious in
that he wants to, plunder."
On the other hand, a person com-
ing up the walk from Mosher-Jor-
dan will cause him to rise up on his
hind legs algd hiss, showing his
bolder attitudes.
Asked if the mascot would be pres-
ent to bring luck to the team at any
more of the home games, Goellener
replied that the difficulty in recap-
turing him and the nervous strain
on the wolverine and other animals in
the cages in capturing him was too
great to make an attempt to get
him down to the field again this
year.
The wolverine has made his home
among 17 other animals in pens be-
hind the Museum, all of the native
of Michigan except the wolverine. Ac-
cording to inquiries made by Field-

ing H. Yost, director of athletics
there is no historical evidence of a
wolverine ever finding its way intc
the state. Geographically fronm
Alaska, the animal was trapped anc
the skins were once brought down
through the state to be traded in the
East. At this time they were prob-
ably called Michigan wolverines,a
name which later came to be applie
to the state.
