The Manchester Evening News, in an article on Jewish life in Manchester, reports:

Leaders of Jewish religious life in Manchester are becoming somewhat concerned at the exodus of Jews from the Cheetham area of the city to districts farther north—Heaten Park and Prestwich in particular.

They believe that in another twenty years Cheetham will be almost entirely deserted by members of the Jewish race and that a part of the city which was once their stronghold will know them no more as residents.

Jewish shopkeepers are moving to Heaton Park, Whitefield, and Prestwich to keep pace with the exodus and new synagogues are being built in the northern side of Manchester.


Time and Tide, a London publication, commenting on Hitler’s repeated assurances of peace, writes:

In spite of the reassuringly reasonable passages in Herr Hitler’s speech, Germany remains a very queer country. Certainly it is the only country in Europe where an eminent man of science could write what Professor Phillip Lenard is reported, in last week’s issue of Nature, to have written about the physical laboratories recently renamed in his honor. “I am very grateful to the students of the University of Heidelberg for their congratulation on the renaming by the Ministry of the Institute which was built some years ago under my direction. I hope that the Institute may stand as a battle flag against the Asiatic Spirit in Science. Our Leader has eliminated this same spirit in politics and national economy—where it is known as Marxism. In natural science, however, with the over-emphasis of Einstein, it still holds sway. We must recognize that it is unworthy of a German —and indeed only harmful to him to be the intellectual follower of a Jew. Natural science properly so-called is of completely “Aryan” origin and Germans must today also find their own way out into the unknown. Heil Hitler!”
