written that Rigljt had cpnquered Wrong." The ceremony was then concluded with the singing of Hat-ikva.
THE SURPRISE OF THE EVENING
This was a most enjoyable musical interlude graciously contributed by those well-known artists, Messrs. Gerhard Olley and Kenneth Spencer, with Miss Wilson as their charming accompanist. The Russian Romance and Folk Songs by Mr. Olley completely carried away his listeners across the Siberian steppes, the Baikal and Volga; only to be suddenly transported back by Mr. Spencer's rich stantorian tones On The Journey to Zion and Lost in London TQwn. His Eili Eili was a masterly rendition that took the lodge completely by storm and earned for the artist deafening and prolonged applause.
PRESENTATION OF SHIELD
It was with just pride that the Lodge presented a beautiful shield to Aleph Godol Al Mackoff, winner of the A.Z.A. International Oratorical Contest. Bro. Harold Freeman, in making the presentation pointed out that the winning speaker was selected in a contest in which some 215 Chapters participated. By his tiiumph he has brought honor and glory not only upon himself, but upon the community in - which he lives. In accepting, the young orator, in a few well-chosen words thanked the Lodge stating that he will ever treasure the gift and that it -will serve as an inspiration for future efforts. REPORTS OF GRAND LODGE DEtiEGATES
This was the highlight of the evening. Both Bro. N. Fox and Bro. E. M. Goldsmith submitted very inter-c.<3ting and complete reports and it is regrettable that space will not permit the publication of more than a few. excerpts. - In submitting his report Bro. N. Fox thanked the Lodge for the opporfunity of attending as a delegate. The experience was most instructive and interesting. At the Grand Lodge Membership was considered so important that a paid membership director was appointed. Special privileges are accorded to
A. Z.A. members to join the B'nai B'rith at only $6.00 per year until they attain the age of 26. The speaker then continued to give an outline of what transpired at the convention. "The first night was an initiation and Dr. Sachar, the principal speaker, during his talk mentioned the work of Hillel and the extension plans for this year. These grants amount from $1,750.00 to $1,500.00. Dr. Sachar wa^ going to make an appeal the next day for a grant from District No. 4."
"This money to be used for new units in the Pacific Coast from Seattle to Arizona. British Columbia University was not included. After the meeting at the hotel I went up to see Dr. Sachar and asked him if it would be possible to include the University of B.C. in his extension work. After a short conversation he agreed to do this and promised me he would tell the District chairman to have the University of B.C. included in his appeal. The arrangements were that when I came back to Vancouver I would submit to Dr. Sachar a list of students in the University of
B. C. He would then personally make arrangements with Past President Kabbi Cass and the local University to establish a part-time Hillel. The next day Chairman Edgar Levi made an appeal for a special grant of $2,500 for Hillel Foundation ex-t<!nsion work. He also outlined the various universities in which they plan to put in full or part-time units. Once again British Columbia was excluded. When the motion was put I requested and was granted permission to speak. I asked Bro. Levi why the University of B.C. was not included in their plans and he immediately jumped up and apologized for the omission. Bro. Levi then arked the secretary to include B.C. in his report."
Since my return to Vancouver my report was sent to Dr. Sachar and a reply received by our secretary. I also understand Bro. Rabbi Cass received a letter from Dr. Sachar regarding this matter. I hope we

IN THE BEaiNNmG <
"First of all comes a king — a chieftain^-a man on horseback. He is anointed by an aristocracy, a group of those who assisted him during his rise to power, but this aristocracy gradually makes common cause.with the rich people-and eventually they are succeeded by the rich, by the men of business, pretending never so much as to see those whom they have already ruined—inserting their sting (that is their money) into anybody who is not on his guard against them and recovering the principal sum many times over. That is the way in which they make drones and paupers to abount in the state.
"Finally their victims can no longer stand it and they attack the rich. They kill many and exile some and to the others they give what they call equality of freedom and power.
Immediately they use their power to increase the dole and to give themselves all the lucrative offices.
"They flatter the multitudes and pamper them until all rule becomes anarchy, iali standards are debased by omnipresent vulgarity and man-^ ners are coarsened by unhindered insolence and abuse.
"The mad pursuit of wealth des-
troys an oligarchy, but excess of liberty destroys a democracy, for the father descends to the Jevel of the son and the master fears and flatters his pupils. The pupils despise their teachers. Young and old are alike, and the young man is on the level with the old one and ready to compete with him in word or deed. This excess of liberty causes slavery of the worst sort, and the most agg^ra-vated form of tyranny arises oiit of the most extreme form of liberty.
"In the end, this becomes unbearable. The rich, afraid that democracy will bleed them to death, begin to conspire against the democratic leaders, and meanwhile some enterprising fellow comes along and promises the poor he will make an end to all their misery if they will only follow him as their leader. He promises everything to everybody and hastens to surround himself with an army. He kills his enemies a:nd then kills those of his friends whom he has reason to suspect. Finally, he purges the state and establishes a dictatorship.
"The" few reasonable naen are like civilized human beings fallen aimong the wild beasts, and they retire, if they want to save themselves, and wait until the storm has passed by."
It is interesting to know this was written by Plato, the Greek philosopher, over 2000 years ago.

will soon have a Hillel extension here in Vancouver. I would like to close my report with a few words of appreciation for the work of my fellow delegate, Bro. Goldsmith, whose zeal and work for the Grand Lodge during these past ten years has again been recognized by his re-election as a member of the General Committee. His popularity at the convention was proven by the fact that in a list of 14 candidates for election on the General Committiee, he was fifth on the list. Bro. Goldsmith's re-election is also a tribute to the fact that Vancouver Lodge ranks high in the District as one of the most active lodges for its membership."
REPORT OF BRO. GOLDSMITH
In presenting his report, Bro. e! M. Goldsmith paid glowing tribute to Bro. N. Pox for his splendid work at the convention. Bro. Goldsmith pointed out that all discussions were democratic, methodical and businesslike. Attendance was mandatory, "There were over 300 delegates and we felt it our duty to attend meetings regularly. A splendid increase in membership was revealed; a growing realization that to be a B'nai B'rith is akin to a policy of insurance. It was gratifying to note the many outstanding leaders—such men as Judge Golden who as far. back as 1933 foresaw the shadows of: coming events and issued a clarion, call to flght against the menace of Hitlerism. In his address he called for the sacrifice of money, labor and if necessary lives for the preservation of American institutions. The. convention adopted Judge Golden's resolution tendering to the President and the people of the U.S.A. the; voluntary, practical and uncompen-j sated service of the members of Dis-i trict No. A." Bro. Goldsmith said, youth and its problems received special emphasis from Dr. Sachar who urged that youth be kept within the fold of B.B. Bro. Goldsmith also said there was a possibility of the establishment of a Hillel Foundation at Seattle and that in all there are about 60 Hillel Foundations established in U,S.A. In concluding his report Bro. Goldsmith emphasized the fact that the convention operates for the benefit of the Lodges; It is instructive and enlightening and affords an opportunity of introducr ing improvements.
Bro, Ablowitz thanked the delegates on the excellence of their reports and their acute sense of th6 value of problems which have been presented and which are bound to prove both a splendid personal experience and of great benefit to the Lodge.
An impassioned plea for greater effort on behalf of the Talmud Tor-ah was made by Bro. R. L. Zion in the name of the young manhood and womanhood, prospective members of 1955. The children of today who will become the men of tomorrow. He deplored the apathetic indifference of many who do not realize that the Talmud Torah is a collective achievement, a common heritage and a joint responsibility. And he urged that a committee be appointed to [ enlist the co-operation of all members towards this worthwhile cause.
The meeting was then formally adjourned following which refreshments were enjoyed by all. [

"We, in this hour, must have absolute national unity for. total defense.
"What shall we be defending? The good earth of this land, our homes, our families—and far more. We shall bo defending a way of life wliich has given more freedom to the soul and body of man than ever has been realized in the world before, a way of life that has let men scale whatever heights they could scale without hurting their fellows, a way of life that has let men hold up their heads and admit no n^aster but God.
"That way of life is menaced. We can meet the threat. We can meet it in the old frontier way. We can forge our weapons, train ourselves to shoot, meet fire with fire, and with the courage and the unity of frontiersmen."
—President Franklin D. Roosevelt ANNIVERSARY
"It was to spare the human race the untold suffering and indescribable tragedy of the kind we are witnessing today that the Kellogg-Bri-and Pact was signed. The soundness of its underlying principles has in no way been impaired by what has taken place since then.
"Sooner or later they must prevail as an unshakable foundation of international relations unless war with its horrors and ravages is to become the normal state of the world and mankind is to relapse into the chaos of barbarism. And I am certain that there are in the human race resources of mind and spirit sufficient to insure that these sane bases of civilized existence will become firmly established."
—Secretary of State Cordell Hull. CHILDREN
"We must stress also the meaning of democracy and the necessity for its preservation lest America, too, shall substitute force for freedom and tragedy become the word for our children as it is for children abroad.
"Democracy means the right to live one's life as he chooses so long as he respects the rights of others. It means as well equality of opportunity for self-development. We have striven and shall continue to strive to make our school system syn-onjmaous with democracy. It is for all children. Each must have the chance to develop in accordance with his mental and physical capacity. Each must have the chance to prepare for the life work of his own choice."
—Superintendent of Schools for New York, Harold G. Campbell.
"It is because we prize our freedom, our life in amity and accord with our neighbors, our liberty to speak and live the truth, that we as Americans value our democracy. It is for this reason that we will defend it from within and from without against the menace of those who would introduce among us the manifest dangers and tyrannies of hatred

Estelle Levy, seventeen-year-old veteran of the "Let's Pretend" radio program is getting stopp-shouldered. This phyisical slump has nothing to do with age, worries or any such trivia, hut because of the amazing amount of hardware she wears pinned to her jackets^ Sprinkled about her lapels are intricate designs of various school pins, charity buttons and all manner of "memory" clips and clamps.

LOST AND FOUND
One of life's little mysteries: Back^ stage at Columbia's Radio Theatre No, 3, is a desk drawer containing lost articles and forgotten by members of the studio audience. After every radio broadciast, there is inevitably some JEirticle of clothing or accessory left under a seat. Upon examination, the drawer reveals — gloves, all shapes and sizes—including a catcher's glove; a small notebook filled with Chinese scriptinnumerable lipsticks and compacts; a isnapshot of a girl in a bathing suit with "from me to you" inscribed on' the back; and, yrh&t no one can explain, upper and lower dental plates.
COMING OF AGE
Speaking of radio, it could claim the title of the; wonder industry of America, financial statistics supplied by the Federal Communications Commission indicate. In its.swaddling clothes 15 years ago, radio's 750 stations did business to the tune of almost $90,000,000 in 1939. And it is still growing, as seen in these figures: disregarding stations that sold less than $25,000 worth of time, in 1939 there were 519 stations which did over $80,000,000 worth of business as compared with.485 stations the previous year which reported sales of $71,000,000, Entertainers were paid almost $15,000,000 last year while another $5,000,000 went out for program material and royalties for music.. . .
THE LIFE OF "CUPCAKE"
In one of the studios in Radio City there is a gentleman called "Cupcake." This fellow has made his permanent home thpre, too. "Cupcake" let us explain is only a cricket of sizeable dimensions which somehow found its way into the electric clock on the control board of the
production desk, and decided to stay. No amount of co^ng will bring him out, and since during his stay in the studio things have been going very smoothly, no one-really wants him to move." ^'Cupcake" usually comes out of hiding during one of the broadcasts and spends seveial minutes walking around the dial of the clock before retiring pnee more into the works. Oddly enough) "Cupcake's" home life does not interfere With the operation of the dock. Meanwhile, "Cupcake" lives in comfort with plenty, of time o^n his hands. . . .

- "As Americans we can greet and meet with one another in daily living, irrespective of the lands from which our ancestors have come. As Americans, we can extend the hand of fellowship to our neighbors, whatever our religion or creed. As Am-ericans, virithout any distator to whip us or compel us, we can stand together a united people in defense of a heritage of freedom or liberty that should be more dear to us than life itself."
—Gov. Herbert H. Lehman.
"We need another defense, a defence against subversive propaganda spread here by agents of totalitarian powers. Propaganda is a very real menace. It has been loosed upon us in subtle, ingenuous ways. We are being subjected to the same insidious onslaught that 'softened' France, Holland, Norway and Czechoslovakia—^the land of many of our forbears."
