Svenska Tribunen-Nyheter -- January 03, 1923Successful Co-Operation (Editorial)
The United States Department of Agriculture has for some time been making a thorough study of the co-operative movement and its chances for success in this country. The chief of the Economy Bureau of the Department recently made an address in which he emphasized certain essential principles on which a sound development of the system must rest. Here are some of them:
In the first place, it is important that every farmer who joins a co-operative undertaking should fully understand the idea on which the organization is based and its purpose, and that he should keep in mind that its turnover must be large enough to cover the cost of operation.2
Many co-operative enterprises undertaken by farmers have failed because the members have not been bound by contract to make specific deliveries of their products. They may have declared themselves ready to make certain deliveries at a certain time, but when that time arrived they were unable or unwilling to fulfill their obligations.
Furthermore, it is of the utmost importance that the business be managed by capable men and that bookkeeping and accounting be properly done. When details of organization and Methods of operation have become well systematized, and the business is running smoothly, it is in many instances unnecessary to hire outside help.
The official in question declared that whenever a co-operative enterprise has failed, the causes were, as a rule, to be found in lack of adherence to one or more of these basic principles. To adopt sound business methods 3is just as imperative for an undertaking of this kind as it is for any other business venture.

Abendpost -- January 03, 1923A. Klappenback Dies.
Again a man passed away, who was most prominent among his fellow citizens and whose name is closely interwoven in the history of the German-Americans of our city. He had been a good companion and a wonderful friend to man.
Alexander Klappenbach died January 3rd, 1924, in his home at 2140 Fremont Street. Mr. Klappenbach reached the age of sixty four years, He was born in Texas, but as a boy, he came to Chicago and in his earliest youth developed a remarkable tendency towards German literature. In later years the wholesale distribution of German literature was the foundation of his wealth and public esteem. In 1885, after several years of employment in different book stores, he founded his own business under the name of Koelling, Klappenbach and Kenkal. Three years later the firm, besides the general tasks of a book store, specialized also in the importation and selling of German literature, developed into one of the biggest and most well known of its king in America.
In 1894 a fire destroyed his business, but, Mr. Klappenbach started the reconstruction 2of his new business, which was moved to 206 W. Randolph Street.
About fifteen years ago Mr. Klappenbach retired. However, he preserved an active interest in art and literature and, especially, arranged for the sale of products of German-American authors, of whom many gave thanks to him in later years for their success.
An almost complete collection of works, printed in the German language in this country, formed the particular pride of the deceased.
Several German-American societies are obliged to him. He also was a member of several outstanding German-American societies.
As a German-American book seller Mr. Klappenbach was a pioneer of German culture, and German art in the United States, as a person he was a man of magnificent characteristics and undefiled character. His death is indeed a great loss. Honor to his memory.

Daily Jewish Courier -- January 04, 1923Be Prepared (Editorial)
Dr. Weizmann will arrive in America on March 1, and is expected to reach Chicago about March 15. Dr. Weizmann is not coming to Chicago simply to enjoy himself. He is coming here to remind the Jews of their duty to Palestine. The Chicago Jews have not, as yet, fulfilled their duty to Palestine, and they are in a position, both materially and financially, to bear a portion of the great responsibility which history has imposed upon them.
Thus, we can only say to the Jews in Chicago: Be prepared! When the great Zionist leader comes to you, you should know what to do. He is not coming to talk to you personally; he is coming to tell you what has been accomplished in Palestine in the last two years, and what must be 2accomplished in the next two and one-half years if we are to attain our goal.
It is now two and one-half years since Sir Herbert Samuel became High Commissioner of Palestine. In these two and one-half years, relatively little has been done in proportion to what could have been done. Instead of twenty-five thousand Jews, one hundred thousand could have emigrated, if the Jewish people had responded to the first appeal issued by the Keren Hayesod ["exchequer" of World Zionist Organization]. Instead of two hundred thousand acres of land, our property should embrace a million acres, and instead of fifteen thousand pioneers, there ought to be forty thousand pioneers in Palestine today.
Sir Herbert Samuel still has another term of two and one-half years to serve as High Commissioner of Palestine (it is an old tradition in England that a High Commissioner or Governor General in a colony, dominion, 3or occupied territory serves no more than five years. After five years he will be replaced by someone else. In two and one-half years someone will succeed Sir Herbert Samuel). Who this someone will be, we do not know. Perhaps Sir Herbert Samuel's successor will be a Jew and, possibly, a more energetic Jew than the present High Commissioner. It is also possible that he will be a Gentile, and not particularly sympathetic to Zionism. Much depends upon the quantity and quality of our work in Palestine. If England can be convinced that the experiment with the Jews in Palestine has been successful, that Jews are sincere and intend to build up the land, she will surely encourage us, and Sir Herbert Samuel's successor will be an energetic friend of Zionism. But if we do not accomplish a great deal in these five years, England will become indifferent to the whole matter and will not overtax herself for us.
One need not be a far-sighted statesman in order to realize how absolutely imperative it is for us to continue the constructive work in Palestine and to do it as quickly as possible. But how can we go on with the work 4rapidly, when we contribute pennies instead of dollars to the Keren Hayesod? In a city like Chicago, with 400,000 Jews, the Keren Hayesod has 3,000 subscribers in all, and most of the subscribers only contribute small amounts. Chicago should have at least 10,000 subscribers, with an annual income of no less than a million dollars for the Keren Hayesod. If the other Jewish communities in America contribute proportionately, we will have a quarter-million Jews in Palestine by 1926.
Dr. Weizmann comes to Chicago to speak to us about one thing--about the Keren Hayesod. And we can only say to Chicago Jewry: Be prepared!
When Dr. Weizmann comes to Chicago we must present him with a large check for the Keren Hayesod. The check should not be for less than $100,000. Therefore, be prepared to raise, in the next ten weeks, $100,000 for the Keren Hayesod.
The campaign should not begin when Dr. Weizmann arrives. It must begin 5immediately. When the great Zionist leader arrives in Chicago, the campaign should be near its end, and the check should be written.
All Keren Hayesod workers must begin at once to work for this campaign; otherwise the time will be too short. The leaders of large Jewish organizations and institutions must be attracted to the work; the presidents of synagogues, the grand masters of fraternal orders, the leaders of youth societies, etc. We must all be prepared for the day of Dr. Weizmann's arrival.
Upon Chicago Jewry rests a large responsibility--and the only way to fulfill this sacred duty is to work. Be prepared to make a sacrifice. Be prepared!
Dr. Weizmann will arrive in America on March 1, and is expected to reach Chicago about March 15. Dr. Weizmann is not coming to Chicago simply to enjoy himself. He ...

Daily Jewish Courier -- January 04, 1923Fundamental Rights of Children
The rearing of children is expensive. Parents know full well how costly it is. Notwithstanding this fact, children are assets, not liabilities. There are few parents who would say that their children are not worth the amount they cost. If parents are unable, for whatever reasons, to provide for their children, and this obligation falls upon the community, the children are still assets to the community. Conditions in society are not always what they should be. Ill-health shortens the lives of many, and illiteracy limits the working capabilities of others. Crime and immorality imperil the social order, and society is responsible for this. But the future generation furnishes fresh material which can be shaped in accordance with society's needs. The mistakes which we adults have made, can be rectified by our children. A few years of public attention focused upon the welfare of children, could change a society. Therefore, one can understand that the guidance and care, that children need, should be given to them not only out of kindness and humanitarianism--it is the children's right.2
Every child is entitled to certain things--if a child does not receive them, society suffers. Let us briefly mention these things, and then we shall see whether society can guarantee them to every child.
All of us agree with the most recent scientific discovery that all children are entitled to the best prenatal care, because the care of a child begins with the attention the mother gets before the child is born. They [children] have the right to enter a home which has been prepared for them. They have the right to the proper kind of nourishment, which should be given to them at the proper time: first the mother's breast, and then simple, well-selected, and well-cooked food. They have the right to a clean, well-arranged and spacious home. They have the right to sufficient fresh air and pure water, and well-heated rooms and proper clothing in cold weather. They have the right to a lot of sleep and a comfortable bed. They have the right to protection against contagious disease and the right to instruction in proper conduct. They have the right to an education in keeping with their abilities, and to good training. and influence. They have the right to play. All these 3rights are usually assured in a normal family life.
It is unquestionably true that the child has the right to live in a home where the father can provide him with the aforementioned necessities. Most parents are willing to do everything they can for their children. The first thing that communities should do, in order that children may enjoy their rights, is to establish children's bureaus, and to prohibit the use of force upon children. One of the most important social institutions would be a health center where parents could learn how best to raise children. If a father's earnings do not allow him to provide his children with everything they need, society must come to his aid with milk stations, recreation centers, etc.
If a father is dead or unable to work, then society must help the mother take care of her children. If both parents are dead, the child should be taken into a private home where he can be given individual attention. The child has a right to be raised by people who have watched his development and who know his nature and character. If the child is neglected and needs special treatment, 4which requires the guardianship of others, then it must be given under social supervision. To direct a children's home requires the services of an expert, who knows how to become friendly with children, and who can find out their particular desires. It is in the interests of society that every child should be placed in an environment where he can properly develop his capabilities. Therefore, the Juvenile Court, or the court which provides guardians over children, is one of the means through which society can fulfill several of its duties.
