CHICAGO, July 3 (AP)—Jews of
the nation turned toward Chicago
when their classic pageant, The
Romance of a People, is present-
ed before a sellout house of more
then 125,000 persons of all faiths in
the Soldier Field Stadium.
The huge spectacle is to be given
under the floodlights tonight on a
stage of 40,000 square feet. Yester-
day before the dress rehearsal
Judge Harry M. Fisher, general
chairman of Jewish day activities
at the fair, said every seat had
been sold, including 15,000 set aside
for out-of-town visitors.
Meanwhile the convention of the
American Zionist organization got
underway Sunday with the 3,500
delegates pledging $8,000,000 to
German Jewish refugees for colon-
ization of Palestine.
The plea for financial aid was
voiced by Rabbi Stephen S. Wise,
of New York, when he called the
convention the first important
meeting of American Zionists since
|the Hitler catastrophe hit Ger-
Rabbi Wise demanded a two-fold
answer to Hitler, the first to be
uttered by the judgment of man-
kind out of conscience of Christ-
dom, and the second, to create,
develop and maintain the Jewish
National Home in Palestine.
The Jew is always ready to die
for his country, said Dr. Wise,
but he is not ready to die at the
hands of his country.
