sionists have decided not to submit to Zionist discipline. If no way is found to attract the Revisionists to the next Zionist Congress, there will be a serious split, not only within the ranks of the Zionist Organization, but also with respect to the representation of Palestine Jewish interests before the outside world.


The Italian press came out this week with the direct accusation that the steamer Tel Aviv, which was proclaimed a Jewish ship, is nothing but a Nazi liner bearing a Jewish name.

This charge was made recently also in one of our columns and the Arnold Bernstein Line was challenged to make an open statement and to explain whether the steamer Tel Aviv is a part of the German commercial fleet. If the latter is true, then there is no reason why Jews should boycott German steamers like the Bremen, the Europa and others, and not the steamer Tel Aviv just because it is camouflaged by a Jewish name.

With the charge now being made by the Italian press, it can only be hoped that the Arnold Bernstein Line, which is a German line, will finally make the looked-for explanation. If no such explanation is given, then the Jewish public will be justified in taking it for granted that the steamer Tel Aviv is nothing but a Nazi fake, calculated to increase the income of the German government from its shipping industry by fooling the Jews into thinking that the steamer is Jewish.

Every new Ford V-8 Fordor Sedan utilizes more than seventy pounds of cotton. A total of 25,000,000 pounds of cotton will be used in making the tires of the 1,000,000 or more cars Henry Ford is building in 1935.
