.- manity that makes the whole, world kiiu There is then no distinc
tion between Jew or Gentile; whether they have met their fate in
" sudden and shocking death or money is needed for the homeless and
destitute that survive them- The calamity appeals to every man
with a heart in his bosom and he stops to consider hothtng.btrt that
there is crying need for the little money that he ie able to contribute
' to relieve distress or mitigate destitution. . , f
rV hen there-was' a famine in
ican people, without distinction rose to the emergency and did their
whole duty as humane men and women should do it. ' A calamity
has now befallen the persecuted Jews of Russia.' Fifty thousand,
perhaps more of them, have been slain and the end is not yet.
There is need of enormous sums of money to meet the barest wants
of the persecuted survivors. While the Jews'themselves' have cori
'tribuied to every emergency fund that has been raised in this coun
try" to meet the sudden- needs of
l, is now upon them ajcalamity so appalling as to makeita matter of
world-wide concern and magnitude,' a calamity almost beyond the
power of one class, however generous, to relieve. V
' In such an emergency the calls of a common humanity should
-appeal-quite as loudly .to.ihe Gentile as. the Jew.rThis isa plane
upon which all 'can meet and all -should meet. v . , ; ; . , ' , , : ,

congregation for contributions and these in bulk should be turned

Here is "an opportunity, for, Portland that should not be missed
to put itself in line with progressive humanity everywhere, which
in the face of such a calamity thinks of no creed or class, but sees
alone the need of, aid that may be rendered to human beings like
themselves". ' , ' ' rv V';','' ' '
