Our attention has been called to an advertisement in a journal called Mutual Professional News, and distributed among physicians and dentists.

“Come to Troutdale—in Maine reads the advertisement. “A vacation paradise for lovers of fishing,” and so forth. Then follows this bait: “Exclusively a Gentile clientele.”

Strange enough, on the very same page appears a quotation from John Galsworthy which reads:

“Sport, which still keeps the flag of idealism flying, is perhaps the most saving grace in the world at the moment, with its spirit of rules kept, and regard for the adversary.”

The Professional Mutual News, which is distributed under the Mutual Professional Plan, undoubtedly reaches a number of Jewish readers to whom the above quoted advertisement must be offensive.

This particular “paradise for lovers of fishing” is for a Gentile clientele only. Apparently the owners of the Troutdale Cabins do not believe that the sport of fishing should keep the flag of idealism flying. Or is it possible that the owners of the Troutdale “paradise” have authoritative information that the trout in Troutdale prefer to be caught only by a Gentile clientele?

Poor fish.


The Polish government is determined now to put an end to the organization that was responsible for the anti-Jewish out-rages and for the assassination of Minister of the Interior Bron-slaw Pieracki. Premier Koz-owski declared at the funeral services for Colonel Pieracki that irrespective of who the criminal is or whence he comes, the moral blame for the murder falls in all preparing an atmosphere of terror.”

It is always so. A terroristic organization that incites and di-rects assaults against a portion of the population eventually ex-ends its terroristic acts to other elements of the population. In Rumania, years ago, when the peasants were incited to commit anti-Jewish outrages, they soon-also turned against non-Jewish estate owners and attacked their Gentile neighbors as well, After attacking the Jews, the Nazified Rumanians assassinated Premier Duca because he dared to day that the anti-Jewish out-rages were at the same time a serious menace to Rumania.

In Poland, too, the Naras and the National Democrats, the ter-roristic rowdies and the anti-Jewish economic boycotters, not content with their shocking assaults on the Jews, murdered
