"Its hard to make people realixe all
of the horrors to which these child
rep are exposed. One of the repre
sentatives of th? Joint Distribution
Committee, James Becker, the son of
a Chicago banker, who volunteered
his services, tells of a visit he made to
the children's hospitals In a town call
ed Kamenltx-Podolsk, in the Ukraine.

' these horrible beds typhus-stricken

"One of my close personal friends,
Mr. Jacob Billlkopf, who th the execu
tive director of the Philadelphia Fed*-'
eratlon of Jewish Charities, re turned
recently from Poland, whither he had
gone as a commissioner of the Joint
Distribution Committee. He visited
Wilna, his native city, to see conditions
there. Mr. Billlkopf and a noted cor
i respondent of a New York dally were
returning from a relief meeting one
ni^ht when they heard a heart-rend
ing sound of walling from an alley.
They penetrated the alley, and when
in the styglan darkness they traced
the walUng to Its source, they found
two children, a boy and a girl, of eight
and nine. The girl, who was the old- \
tr, finally told Mr. Billlkopf that their;
father had been killed In a pogrom
and their mother had gone Insane.!
They had wandered and starved for'
months, and now they were exhaust-1
ed. Mr. Billlkopf aroused the occu
pahts of the house on whose doorstep
these children "?ere found, and per^j
suaded them to take the children In j
BLINKING, blinking in ukuk
"The next morning Mr. Blllikopf
look these babes to the Jewish orphan
asylum and arranged for their care. |
WWU in the courtyard he ohaerrad,
about two hundred children, emaciated j
and gaunt, squatting on the ground, i
too weak to play, but blinking, blink
ing, horrfbly blinking J* a sort of grue
pome rhythm. Mr. Billfkcpf ascer
tained that, these children had acquir
ed. through malnutrition, a peculiar
ailment which robbed them of the con
trol of their eyelids during the day,
and Which caused them to blink con
stantty, mcessaimy, go Ton g a a the
sun shone. Only when darkness fell
did Ehey~~regain control of the muscles
of their eyelids. As Mr. Blllikopf
traveled through Poland and Galicia |
and Lithuania he came across hund-,
feds?yes, thousands?of children sim I
ilarly afflicted with this ailment, which
the Germens had named 'huhner kran
kheit'?chicken ailment?because they
blinked their eyes just as chickens do
daring the hours of sunshine.
"Oh. I could go on this way for hours
at a time, unfolding to you the horri
ble details of this 'tragedy of the chil
dren,' " Mr. Straus interrupted him
self, "but some of the stories that
have been told us.? not by hysterical
men and women, Wfct by trained social
workers who realize the need for ac
curate statements, are nevertheless
incredlblev Suffice it to say that there
fcas been nothing in history to com
pare to thiB terrible plight of these
300,000 children, and the tragedy, co- j
lossal as It is now, will become infi- j
nitely greater unless help is brought
to them as speedily as possible.
OTHER PHASES OF THE JEWISH
"Besides, even though my heart is
always touched by the cry of helpless
childhood, I must not forget that there
are other phases to the terrible trag
edy of the Jewish people of Eastern
and Central Europe." Mr. Straus went
on. "How-fnany people in this ? oun- 1
try know that 50 per cent of all the
I houses belonging to Jews In Eastern
j Europe have been destroyed either hyJ
the contending armies or bypogrom
gangs; and that in Roumanla, Galicia.
Eastern Poland, Southern P.tissi-i and !
Lithuania the destruction approxima
tes 90 per cent? How many people
know that there are one million Jews
starving In the Ukraine; that thi-re in
acute suffering among 50,000 Jew?, in
the Odessa region?"
"HOW T/ONO. O LORD, HOW LONG?"
While Mr. Btraua wsi talking to hla
tntervlewer, tali secretary brought in
an evening newspaper containing a re
port that new pogroms were taking
place In the Ukraine.
"How long, O Lord, how long?" ex
claimed the venerable philanthropist,
whose heart beats so strong for hu
manity that people who know say tb*t
he has given away halt of his.capital
la the past ten years. "Will the trag
edy of Israel never endt"
"Here yon have another phase of
the great Jewish tragedy," said Mr.
Straus when, flna'ly, he was able to
restrain his emotions. "This report,
In addition to announcing the out
break of pogroms, tells also of thous
ands of refugees massed against the
Dniester River, which they hope to
cross In order to enter Roumanla. But
they can't enter Roumanla. The bor
ders are closed against them, and they
will be fired on If they attempt to
cross the river. Only a few days ago
t h? Roumanian Oovernment Issued an
edict expelling Jewish refuges from
most of that rOuntrry.
EUROPE FLOODED WITH JEWISH
"Europe Is flooded with Jewish ref
ugees from the war gad from pogroms
There are 4M.OOO of Ueaa scattered
across the continent, all tke way from
stltuu a terrible problem. Thous
ands of thorn ere living In the flaldi
and fur cats, other thousand* are crow
ded into communities which cu hard
ly take care of tkalr own poor. They
ar? victlma of disease and plagues
which threaten to become epidemic
and which, it not checked, may sweep
across the Atlantic. The Joint Dis
tribution Committee has a medical
unit in Europe which is grappling with
this terrible situation. But what
these refugees want?the great long
1 Ing that is In their souls?is to return
to their native heaths. They want
to go back to the ruins?which were
once their homes, and there, on their
ruins, begin lite again. They must
be helped to return, they must be giv

' hopes to do wlth-the $14,000,000 for
! which it Is Issuing: its appeal. It has
'already established. In Poland and
i Roumanla, credit banks which loan
money Xp~ Co-ooerative producers' and
consumers' organizations so as to pro
ride the capital which will enable the
merchant and the .manufacturer to re
sunie business; the artisan to buy
tools and,the day laborer to earn his
I daily bread by the sweat of his brow,"
I said Mr. Straus.
I JEWISH PRIDE TO THE PORE
I "My people are a proud people."
continued the philanthropist. "They
dou't want to remain on the breadline;
they don't want to depend on the soup
kiu hen. So long as there were no
opportunities for self-support, so long,
as the political conditions and the af
termath of the war made that impos
sible they were compelled, perforce,
to accept alms. But now they want
to KO to work; now they want to re
sume life as selfrespectlng, self-sus
taining men and women. And more
than that: they want to educate their
children. Yes, that Is one ot their
| chief concerns, and even when things
were at their worst In Poland, in Gal
Icia, everywhere, they made sacrifices
tor the sake of their children. And,
more than that, they want, as speedily
as possible, to assume part of the bur
den of solving the terrible problems
of the Jews of Europe which have re
such a people should be helped to get
back on their feet.
"Ana i am sure that they 'Will be
helped," concluded Mr. Straus. "The
appeal by the American Jewish Relief
Conrmltte for $14,000,000 will not fall
on deaf ears. The Jews of this conn
try have been blessed beyond all the
rest of Israel. They have known
peace, they have known prosperity,
and they must now share their bless
ings with their helpless brethren, with
the orphan children, with the refugees.
They cannot talk of unsettled depres
sion, because, even If conditions in
tills country were tenfold worse than
they art at the present time, the poor
est man In this country Is Infinitely
better off than those
across the sea. This appeal cannot,
dare not, fail, because that wonld doom
hundreds ot thousands of people to
death. And that must not happen.
Help must come, and come quick 1/
