Jewish Lecturer Tries to Divert Emi-
gration to Palestine.

To divert the thousands of Jews who emigrate each year from teh section of Europe where they are oppressed to Palestine instead of the United States and South America, is the object of the society which Leon Chasanowich, a Jewish journalist and lecturer, who addressed Kansas City Jews last night at the Jewish Educational institute, represents. The organization is called the Jewish Workmen's Zion Society. It was founded recently and an active campaign for the realization of its purposes is being made.

"While the Jews have fared very well in the United States," Mr. Chasanowich said last night, "a greater future awaits them in Palestine, where they can band together and make a cou ntry of their own. In this country the Jews have never been able to engage in a certain few trades and the progress of the race has suffered."

Mr. Chasanowich was, until a few moths ago, the editor of two Jewish journals in Austria. He will remain in Kansas City next week, giving lectures Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings.

From here he will go to the Argentine Republic.
