from M. M. Vinaver. the recognized
leader of the Russian Jewry and chair
man of the central committee of the
constitutional democratio party:
The entire Russian Jewry struggles
acainst bolshevlsnv This Is true with
retrard not only to the bourgeoisie but
to the democratieftclasses of the Russian
Jewry. It Is sufficient to say that not
a single Jewi-.h socialist faction has
Joined the bWsheviki.
"The treat majority of the Jewish
population, including many of the poor,
are being classed by the bolshevik!
with the so-called bourgeoisie, and
every place where the bolshevik! rule
the Jewish population, not to speak
of very Insignificant exceptions, is suf
fering and starving. The bolshevist re
gime has destroyed the industries and
the trades and the Jewish population
which made its living mostly through
participation in the industrial and com
mercial life, is suffering probably more
than others.
The anti-Semites are using very
widely the fact that Trotzky Is a Jew,
but the participation of several Jews
among the bolshevist leaders does not
nullify the fart that the Russian army.
In 1 overwhelming majority, actively
struggles against bolshevism.
"The American Jewry would help
their brethren living In Russia very
much if they would help us In our
work of building up an antl-bolshevlst

Wind Dies Down and Huge Cruiser
Swings Securely at Cables Big
Crowds Come to See Craft.
MINEOLA. JT. T.. July 7. The return
cruise of the British dirigible R-34
across the Atlantic ocean will not start
until shortly after dawn on Wednesday.
The proposed plan to get the gigantio
ship away at S A. M. on Tuesday was
abandoned tonight after local weather
conditions, which Included adverse
bumpy winds, made it impossible for
the dirigible's crew to overhaul the en
gines during the afternoon.
Without such overhauling it would be
Impracticable for the airship to take off
on her venture, as quantities of carbon
accumulated in the engines during the
108 hours in which the craft waa aloft
on the unprecedented journey which
ended at Roosevelt field here on Sun
day morning.
Tonight the R-34 swung at ease above
this flying ground, her graceful hulk
scarcely moving in the gentle breeze.
illuminated by great searchlights which
made her visible to thousands of spec
tators who had come here In motor
cars, trains and on foot to watch the
early leaving.
Alrahtpdn No Danger.
In contrast with conditions as the
darkness fell on Sunday, the dirigible
was not riding in danger tonight. On
Sunday she was suspended with her
nose pointed toward the ground and
her stern swinging at an altitude sev
eral hundred feet higher, in jeopardy
of being dashed to pieces on Roosevelt
field, sudden gusts of wind acting ad
versely against her broad surface.
Shortly before 9 P. M., the wind hav
ing died down until the atmosphere was
listless, a stream of water descended
from amidship. As this ballast left the
craft, the R-54 moved upward slowly.
From both sides, well forward, and
from the under surface, also well for
ward, three wire cables were connected
with anchorages on the ground. The
stern was left to swing with what
ever breeze might stir during the
night. There was no possibility. Major
G. H. Scott, the commander, said, that
the stern would rise as it did Sunday
night until her massive form assumed
at times an almost perpendicular posi
tion. It was explained that on Sunday
too much water ballast had, by mistake,
been emptied from the stern. Tonight
the amount of water ballast let go was
eaually distributed throughout the
Films to Be Censored.
Orders that all motion picture films
showing the R-34 be censored by navy
officials before they are allowed to be
exhibited anywhere were received here
this afternoon from Secretary of the
Navy Daniels. It is understood that
censorship was decided upon in re
sponse to a request from .British ortl
cials. It was assumed that British of
ficials suggested censorship on mill
tary grounds.
