See Yiddish version and the other prior, much shorter heavily redacted English draft. Handout or speaker's guide for an evening program that has educational material for schools and lodges. Translated Summary: Includes a six-page summary description by Ruth Rubin. She claims a thousands-of-years-long heritage for the Jewish folk song, but also describes more recent roots of familiar songs in 19th century Poland. Her essay has headings with categories such as "love songs", "work songs", "humorous songs", "songs of the second world war", "songs of the Soviet Union", etc., and is followed by a bibliography, then a selection of folk song lyrics without a music score. The section on Soviet Songs is heavily ideological. Booklet includes ad for three Mo Asch 10" records "Roll the Union On" (24) with a BRM (Business Reply Mail) card for ordering (25).
- The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
