fNCE more the Chief Executive has invited the
American people to gather in their respective
churches and there to offer up thanks to God for
His many mercies. This Day is for Thanksgiving.
It is not appointed for a fast when we recall our
national sins but a feast when we regard the bless
ings we enjoy above all other nations upon earth.
We may very appropriately consider how the
gifts we acknowledge as a nation may be preserved
and increased. A . feeling of gratitude and an. ex
pression of thanks to our Heavenly Father should
arise as we consider our privilege to reside in a
country where our civil rights are respected, where
life and property are protected, where all children
are offered a sound education, and where religious
and political views are untrammeled by any dicta
While it s true that we have many problems,
national as well as individual, and that in the past
few years we may have suffered a great deal from
economic stress and financial reverses, yet at the
same time we have lived in peace and security and
have been spared the terrible experiences of the
civilian populations of Spain and China.
So this day let us give thanks, not only with our
lips but in our lives, and resolve that we will pass
on intact to the generations yet unborn the glorious
heritage we have ourselves received. Be ye thankful.
Aii Idol Falls
IF it is true, as reported that Colonel Charles Lin
. bergh is looking for an apartment in Berlin for
the winter, and that the family will reside there, it
marks another step down in public esteem in this
country for the man vyho was once the most popular
figure in the United States.
Colonel Lindbergh had some excuse for deserting
his native land to escape the publicity incident to
the kidnapping and death of his son in fact, he
was hounded out of the country by newspaper re
porters and photographers but there can be no
excuse for his seeking the friendship of Hitler and
aligning himself with the Nazi regime in Germany.
He is credited with furnishing certain information
to the German bloc in England, headed by Lady
Astor, which caused the abject surrender o Chamb
erlain at Munich, and he has accepted the second
highest decoration in the gift of the German gov
ernment in payment for services rendered. All of
which does not endear him to the people of his na
There will be no protest made in the United
States if the Colonel decides to make his permanent
home in Europe.
The Persecuted Jews
THE continued persecution of the Jews in Ger-
many, which has aroused a storm of indigna
tion and protest in most of the civilized nations of
the world, is but another chapter in the tragic his
tory of a homeless people who have suffered oppres
sion during the centuries since the days of their
slavery in the land of Egypt.
And yet, despite the multiplied years of misery,
they have remained a separate people and have,
preserved their racial identity." They are today
much as they were in the beginning.
Eftslaved by the Egyptians and Babylonians ; op
pressed by Romans and barbarians ; confined in foul
ghettos in Europe from the middle ages until com
paratively modern times; made to suffer unceasing
torture and misery, the Jews have multiplied and
prospered, . and all nations who have persecuted
them have, met with terrible retribution.
The underlying cause for most of the anti-Semitic
feeling in all countries is that the Jews have a talent
American Diva Returns From Vienna

for accumulating wealth. The Jew has neither love
nor inclination for agriculture or any calling which
entails isolation and physical labor. He prefers the
sedentary pursuits of the towns and-cities where
he can best display his aptitude for trade. He likes
the most congested centers where he can be in close
touch with others of his race and where the big
money is to be found.
This characteristic of the race is as strong irr
Germany as elsewhere, and a large proportion of the
wealth has been in their hands. They were the great
merchants, bankers, pawnbrokers and the largest
stockholders in many rich industries. The fact that
all of this wealth was in the hands of a despised
race infuriated the ruling Nazis to such an extent
that it was determined to drive them out or destroy
them, and to confiscate all' Jewish property. But
it was desire for Jewish wealth rather than deep
seated hatred of the race which caused the German
leaders to embark upon the policy of exile or ex
termination. A to colonizing the exiled Jews in Southwest
Africa, Guiana or any other undeveloped territory,
it is considered doubtful as to, whether it could be
done successfully. The clearing and cultivation of
land, stock raising and other strictly agricultural
pursuits would, of necessitybe the principal occu
pation of the settlers, and these things are against
all instincts of the race. There might be some trad
ing with the natives, but not enough to employ a
large number of people, and to most of the colonists
it would simply mean pioneering in a raw country.
And the Jew is not a pioneer. He has plenty of
courage and persistence, but wresting a livelihood
from the untamed wilderness is something he is
unfitted to tackle.
The idea seems to be gaining headway that it
would be much better and cheaper to run the 'Nazis
into the wilderness and turn Germany over to the
