(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A new work of Senator Luigi Luzzatti just published here contains a number of essays on Religious Ethics, the Relations of the State towards the Religious and National Minorities, and the Jewish Question.

Two of the essays deal with the position of the Jews in Poland and Roumania. Luzzatti writes in particular of the repeated efforts which he made over a long period of years in favor of the granting of citizenship rights to the Jews of Roumania. He also writes of his many interventions with leading politicians on behalf of Beilis during the ritual murder trial in Kiev.

Senator Luzzatti presented a copy of his book to the Premier Signor Mussolini, calling upon him in his dedication to use his power for the defence of all who are persecuted because of their religious convictions.

A mass meeting was held at Emery Auditorium at which Doctor Schmarya Levin and Rabbi Brickner were the speakers. Doctor Emanuel Gemoran was chairman. The United Palestine Appeal, headed by Oscar Berman, as chairman, was organized.

Aaron Lebedinsky, 17 year old Russian Jewish boy who came to America three years ago, is distinguished as the only public school pupil ever apearded a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago.
