By far the outstanding oc-
currence of the past few days
has been the acquittal of
Richard Corbett, a young
Englishman. He was tried in
France on the charge of mur-
dering his mother who was
suffering from cancer. His
justification for this brutal
act was that he loved his
mother inordinately, and that
prompted by this exceedingly
great love he committed this
"murder of love." He couldn't
bear the sight of her terrible
suffering and so relieved her
That he was acquitted con-
clusively proves that he
stood not alone in his reason-

This incident recalls a simi-
lar trial that took place a few
years ago right here in our
own country. A doctor, hav-
ing delivered a child and find-
ing that it would have to
struggle thru life as a helpless
and hopeless cripple caused it
to die. His contention was that
not only had he performed an
act of mercy to the luckless
infant, but that he had bene-
fited society by ridding it of
a certain burdensome expense
and nuisance. Then as now,
a great hue and cry arose and
divergent opinions from very
prominent people were heard.
He was simultaneously lauded
and condemned, acclaimed for
professional courage and in-
tegrity and branded as a men-
ace to the profession and bar-
baric butcher.

Suppose this young Eng-
lishman had been found guil-
ty and had received the death
penalty-what then? Another
consideration would have
arisen. The question of Capi-
tal Punishment would have
loomed once more in all its
stark ugliness to trouble the
conscience of man.
The question of Capital
punishment, reduced to its
lowest terms is this: Shall a
body of men in prolonged ses-
sion and after cool delibera-
tion posses that right which
they deny the person who
murdered in the white heat
of frenzy or passion, namely,
the taking of human life?
Have they, because of self-as-
sumed power and dignity the
prerogative of snuffing out
that God-granted divine spark
called life?
Even if Jewish law were
not deadly opposed to capital
Punishment; even if our Tal-
mudic sages had not branded
the court that convicted to
death one person in seventy
years as a "Murderous bs
din," even if not one voice had
ever been lifted against this
means of maatkg out panlh*

Court Directs
Money Refund
to Lot Buyers

Failure of a real estate
company to carry out im-
provements guaranteed in its
sales contracts, resulted this
week in what is said to have
been the first judgement to
be returned by the federal
court in this jurisdiction or
during the return of money
paid by the purchaser.
Ivan D. Ansell of Hialeah
brought suit in federal court
against the Normandy Beach
Properties, a Massachusetts
corporation, setting forth that
he had purchased several lots
believing that paving, lights,
bridges and other improve-
ments would be supplied, as
the company promised.
Although no time limit was
set for this, Judge Halsted
Ritter ruled the promise mus.
be kept "within a reasonable
time." and gave Ansell a de-
cree for $8,000 and a vendee's
lien on the lots. S. V. M. Ray
represented Ansell and Eu-
gene M. Schwartzenburg ap-

feared for the company.

Hold Conference

The creation of a national
organization to carry out the
project of establishing legion-
naires' colonies in Palestine
was the result of a two-day
conference held at the Irving
Plaza Hall, New York, under
the auspices of the American
Palestine Jewish Legion. The
new organizaiton is to be
known as the Hagdud Ha'Ivri
A request that the Jewish
Agency include in its budget
a provision for the establish-
ment of one Legionniare col-
ony annually was formulated.
The first colony of Legion-
naires, composed of one hun-
dred men, will be established
by the American Palestine
Jewish Legion in 1930, it was

that Jewish veterans of Pal-
estine service, who were de-
mobilized, be declared reserve

whose services should be util-
ized by the Palestine admin-
istration in case of trouble,
was determined upon. The
service rendered by the Jew-
ish self-defense in Palestine
during the recent outbreaks,
was lauded. The establishment
of a non-partisan council of
sympathizers to cooperate
with the Legion in seeking to
establish colonies in Palestine,
was also decided upon.
Officers of the new organi-
zation are: President, Elias
G i n s b e r g; vice-president,
Samuel Friedlander of Orange
N. J., for eastern states; Na-
than Zarozky of Chicago, Ill.,
for western states; B. Sindel-
man of Montreal, Can., for
Canada; Treasurer, Joe An-
kraut ; Secretary, Z. L.
Schein; Financial Secretary,
May Tadel; and an adminis-
trative committee of nine. An
Executive Committee of 24
was chosen.

Jewish Boys
Are Chosen to
Dramatic Club

At the trials held for the
selection of members of the
Dramatic Club of the Ada
Merritt Junior High School
more than three hundred and
fifty boys and girls took part
and two Jewish boys were
chosen out of ten boys named.
Those chosen were Isaac Gor-
don, the son of Mr. and Mrs.
E. Gordon and Frederick
King Shochet. Both of these
boys are pupils of the Beth
David Talmud Torah and
Sunday School and Isaac Gor-
don took a stellar part in the
Channuca play given by the
Beth David Sunday school at
the Fairfax Theatre last year.

Arbeiter Ring
Removes Com-
munist Officers

Unknown to many, Miami
has recently been the scene of
an attempt by members of the
Communist party to obtain
control of the Workmens Cir-
cle Branch, 692, which has
been active in carrying on ed-
ucational and other work in
this socialistic fraternal and
educational organization. I
A number of the Commun-
ist party members of the
local Arbeiter Ring branch
somehow or other managed to
obtain control of the organi-
zation and for sometime past
had been the officers of the
local body. During the past
year the members belonging
to the Communist party have
endeavored to force upon the
members of the body their
principles which were foreign
to the organization and high-
ly distasteful to the major
portion of the members. rIhe
internal strife came to a head
recently when the local Ar-
beiter Ring became the center
for Communistic propaganda
by the officers. Objections
were raised and when the of-
ficers demanded and were re-
fused a vote of confidence,
they left "en masse" and at-
tempted to stage a Commun
ist demonstrat-on which in-
stead became an anti-Com-
munist demonstration and re-
sulted in a resolution for the
expulsion of all members of
the Communist party belong-
ing to the organization and
was adopted without a dis-
senting vote. At this meeting
Dr. A. D. Halpern well known
communal worker of this. cty
As a result of the expulsion
the meeting of October 25th
was one in which complete
harmony and unity prevailed
and definite action was taken
towards the improvement of
the Workmen's Circle School.
Upon an appeal being made
for funds to help enlarge and
support the school more than
three hundred dollars in cash,
and additional five hundred
dollars in pledges were raised,
and at the present time a
quiet campaign is being car-
ried on for additional funds
towards the school mainten-
At the same meeting it was
decided to organize a Junior
Boys and Girls Circle Club
which will be under the aus-
pices of the present body and
will be a means of carrying
on the Arbeiter Ring work
among the youngerset.

ment to an individual, I
would still regard capital pun-
ishment as nothing less than
"subsidized murder."

How the sensitive soul of
an enlightened citizen of a
state practicing capital pun-
ishment must recoil in dis-
gust at the thought that part
of his taxes will defray the ex-
penses of a smugly compla-
cent, even boastful hangman.
How callous must be that ex-
ecutioner creature who fears
not going thru life haunted
I y the last minute expression
of him whose life has been
terminated by his hands.
We shall, Ijrobably, never
know how many of those vic-
tims who, to the very last,
have either dignifiedly pro-
claimed their innocence, or
else have hysterically shout-
ed themselves blue in the face
refusing to oblige the insis-
tent state by admitting their
guilt,- we shall never know
how many ef them really
were innocent and were will-
fully murdered by a mis-
guided state. Removing ten
guilty culprits, admitted foes
of society can never possibly
atone forthe execution of one
innocent person.

However, let us return to
the "rightful murder." Can
anyone with any degree of
certainty contend that a suf-
fering person would prefer be-
ing relieved and released by
death? Or is the urge to live
so powerful that all troubles
and tortures notwithstanding
we still wish to desperately
cling on just as a drowning
man who hopefully catches at
a straw? And, granted, that a
person, under the great stress
of relentless suffering, is
heard to exclaim, "Oh, I wish
I were dead." Shall the by-
stander delegate himself to
cause that hasty and insin-
cere wish to come true?
Job, according to the Bib-

Page 2

le, was a man who lost his
beloved children and vast for-
tune over night. In addition
his entire body became cover-
ed with sore boils. His here-
tofore happy life became a
wretched existence. Three of
his most intimate friends
came to sympathize and con-
Suffering indescribable tor-
ture, he restrained himself for
seven days but on the eighth
day delivered the following
"Why died I not from the
W hy did I not perish at
birth? .
Wherefore is light given to
him that is in misery
And life unto the bitter in
Who long for death, but it
cometh not;
And dig for it more than
for hid treasures;
Who rejoice unto exulta-
And are glad when they can
find the grave?
Thus he lamented and wished
for death! But did anyone of
his three companions appoint
himself angel of mercy and
kill Job? Not at all. They
realized that the recitation of
this bitter longing was merely
a means of easing a troubled
They rightly comprehended
that his desire for life equall-
ed theirs, and therefore they
let him be.
No, despite his own
fervent avowal of love, and
despite the laudatory bless-
ings showered upon him by
noted surgeons, I cannot help
doubt the sincerity of his af-
fection for -his incurable
mother. I cannot help feeling
that he was actuated by sel-
fi-h motives-being rid of a
trouble some burden. To me
he stands bereft of his hero's
halo and appears as a base
calculating, cold-blooded, un-
grateful murderer.

The Reformers

Looking back in perspec-
tive to that hectic period
when Anthony Comstock, Dr.
Parkhurst and Carrie Nation
dictated the morals of the
American people, and then
looking upon ourselves in our
own day, we might wonder
whether we are less virtuous
or more so, than we were in
the days of those dictators.
I must confess that when I
see some of the books that
are being openly published by
reputable publishers and
openly sold at reputable book-
stores, a feeling akin to revul-
sion passes through me and
I almost long for a return to
the Comstock days. And yet,
when I see those same books
openly read and discussed by
reputable people and find that
their morals do not appear to
have suffered because of
them. I am frankly puzzled.
The fact that these books
shock me, is of course, no rea-
son to believe that they im-
pair the morals of those who
read them-no more so than
the fact that the taste of li-
quor happens to be abhorrent
to me, can be advanced as a
reason for Prohibition.
When Carrie Nation occu-
pied the front page with her
rampage of destruction,
smashing up saloons with her
famous hatchet, many people
believed she was crazy. Per-
haps she was. And then again,
sh^ may not have been so
crazy after all. True, none of
the saloons in which she wiel-
ded her hefty hatchet went
out of business. Restoration
followed destruction. Yet, her
w6rk was not for naught. For
as she preached, though we
listened and laughed, her wild
words and wilder actions left
within us a seed from which
grew a thought of great

splashed into the breakers or
sunned themselves on the
beach of the famous city over
which he reigned. It was not
that the well-meaning mayor
was solicitous lest the fair-
ladies' legs might be burned
by the sportive rays of the
sun playing their pranks, as
they lay stretched upon the
sand or frolicked through an
innocent game of leap-frog.
No, it wasn't that at all. The
sun could burn 'em and blis-
ter 'em for all he cared. His
one concern was lest the mor-
als of the good men in his
community might be burned
by the sight of those shapely
legs unsheathed.
As we look back upon those
days, we laugh at the idea of
such a restriction- just as
we laugh when we think of
the time when women wore
dresses down to their heels-
when it was considered im-
modest and immoral to expose
an ankle to the sight of a
male. Most of us remember
how the preachers raged
against the short skirt and
pronounced sentence of eter-
nal condemnation upon those
who wore them. And now,
nine out of every ten women
in church wear knee-high
dress and the tenth is not nec-
essarily the pastor's wife.
I well remember the first
time a female appeared riding
a bicycle on the streets of our
tight little town. The women
who happened to be on the
street at the time, stood ag-
hast. What a gabfest she pro-
vided for the gossips! A bare-
bodied blonde racing bare-
back down the road could
hardly have created a greater
sensation. With each turn of
the pedal, her ankle showed
just as plain as could be. The
indecency of it! What's the
world coming to? Etc., etc.
But the imprecations hurled
upon the courageous female
broke none of her bones and
after the first flush of amaze-
ment began to pale, other
young women took to the
wheel and since that day, mil-
lions have pedalled millions of
miles. In Denmark and in Hol-
land, the streets are crowded
with women cyclers in all ages
and stages of life-some of
them as young as six and
many of them past sixty.
The young woman who dar-
ed defy convention and ran
the gauntlet of the town's
prudes, like many another
hero and heroine, remains un-
honored and unsung. She did
not realize, at the time she
shocked the morals of the
town, that she was a reform-
er, blazing a trail which mil-
lions of her sex would follow
for years to come. Nor did
she realize that the trail she
was blazing would finally lead
to the open road of Woman's
Rights. For who will deny
tha the early woman cycler
was the fore-runner of Equal
Rights for Women ?

Here in New York, women
walk up Broadway bare-leg-
ged and men walk down
Broadway in pajamas. Those
men and women, like Dr.
Parkhurst and Carrie Nation,
are reformers in their own
way. While we may never
adopt the idea of putting the
hosiery mills and clothing fac-
tories out of business by ban-
ishing socks and continuing
night-gowns through the day,


"Now, Milton, tell the lady
what your name is. Go on,

"No, Milton, that's your

of affairs. The one is as great
a menace to the progress of
civilization as the other. But
happily, these are in the min-
ority. The minds of the maj-
ority, to which you and I be-
long, like the winterfront on
automobile radiators, are nev-
er fixedly closed tight or fix-
edly wide open. We adapt our-
selves to existing conditions
by drawing sound conclusions
from obvious facts. And we
know, from an experience
that harks back to Creation,
that more material and spirit-
ual good can come from toler-
ation than from fanaticism.
And knowing tihs, we tolerate
the reformer in the knowl-
edge that however extrava-
gant his views, there may be
some good seed within.
If there is indeed, some-
thing wrong with modern lit-
erature, or modern dress, it
has brought no perceptible
bad effects upon the morals
of mankind. This, in spite of
my own reaction to many of
the books and fashions that
strike me as being unneces-
sarily unsavory. With each
day's dawn, we find the
world's morals no worse than
they were the day before. The
ingenuous youth of yesterday
remains unspoiled today. And
that, after all, is the only
thing that really counts.

"I wanna ice cream soda."
"Now, Milton, stop pulling
the fringe on that pillow and
tell us what you are going to
be when you grow up."
"A horse and carriage."
"Milton, you're not think-
"An elephant."
"Milton, I'm not asking you
what you want for Christmas
I'm asking you what it is you
wish to be when you're a man.
Speak up or Cousin Minnie
will be ashamed. What it it
you are going to be?"
"A pussy cat."
"Dear me! Milton, you're a
naughty, bad boy. He's not at
all like that as a rule, you
know, Mrs. Jones. Awfully
bright child! He's just obstin-
ate, that's all. Milton, don't
you dare stick' your tongue
out at me!"
"When you called did you
find her out?" asked the in-
quisitive friend.
"Yes," snapped the other
woman. "I found her out be-
cause her Irish maid told me
she said she wasn't in."

"You say she finally decid-
ed to quit running away and
stuck to him."
"Yep- she stuck to him
after he pasted her one."

"No, I'm Knott."
"Well, who are you?"
"I'm Knott."
"Not what?"
"No, not Knott Watt. I
simply am Knott. And what's
your name?"
"Watt's my name."
"Yes, that's what I asked.
What's your name?"
"Correct as the dickens. I'm
Watt, I am."
"Say, are you trying to be
funny ?"
"Certainly not. I'm trying
to tell you that my name's
"Oh, I see. You're Watt.
I'm Knott."
"Who's being funny now?
Don't kid me, son."
"Aw shut up!"

The newly appointed pastor
of a negro church faced a
packed audience when he
arose to deliver his sermon on
the burning question: "Is
There a Hell?"
"Bredern," he said, "de Lord
dun made the world roun' lak
a ball."
"Amen," coursed the con-
"An de Lord made two ax-
les for the world to go rouu'
on, and He put one axle at the
north pole and one at the Souf
"Amen," agreed the congre-
"And de Lord He put a lot
oil and grease in de center of
de world so as to kep the axles
well greased and ,oiled."
"Amen," cried the admir-
ing congregation."
"And then a lot of sinners
dig wells in Pennsylvania and
steal de Lord's oil and grease.
And dey dig wells in Kain-
tucky, Louisiana, Mexico and
Russher, and steal de Lord's
oil and grease dere. Now
some day dey will have de
Lord's oil and grease, and
dem axles is gonna git hot.
And den. bredren, dat will be
hell, dat will be hell!"
An attempt to settle a lit-
tle difference between a man
and his wife is reported by
Judge Humphreys:
"Do you act toward your
wife as you did before you
married her?"
"Exactly. I remember just
how I used to act when I first
fell in love with her. I used
to lean over the fence in front
of her house and gaze at her
shadow on the curtain, afraid
to go in. And I act just the
same way now."

stances from attending the
services at the normal hours.
Here Kadeshim must be alert
and strenuous indeed if thev
would succeed in getting any
responses at all.
I looked round everywhere
but failed to see my friend
Mr. Samuels.
And for whom was his boy
saying Kaddish? It couldn't
be for his departed mother,
for the year was now well
past. A pang shot through my
heart. The little boy recogniz-
ed me as a friend, and to my
anxious enquiries, sobbed out
that his poor father had died
a fortnight ago after a short
illness, and that he now lived
with Auntie Annie who was
very kind to him. She was
waiting for him outside.
At the conclusion of the
services I walked out into the
passage with the little boy's
hand in mine, to the surprise
of Annie. She regarded me
questioningly, then a look of
wondering recognition came
into her sad eyes, dimmed
with much weeping.
"You are Jacob, little Ja-
cob, the good rabbi's younger
son, aren't you?" she said in
a weak voice. "So you still re-
member us. But he's dead, my
poor Morris is dead," she
broke down in tears.
I expressed how shocked
and sorry I was, and as we
walked along Brick Lane wid-
ening into Osborne Street, I
told her how I had witnessed
their sad meeting, and of my
last talk with poor Mr. Sam-
"Yes," she said, "I saw him
that Shabbas morning in
Whitechapel with little Simy,
after many years of separa-
tion. I nearly collapsed, How
ill he looked, too.
"A fortnight ago they came
to call me to him. He had got
to know where I lived, and on
his death bed had sent for me.
I hurried there more dead
than alive. My darling, my
poor Morris was dying.
"He frightened a little when
I entered the room where he
was lying so wan and thin.
'At last you are with me,
dear Annie,' he whispered
with difficulty, 'So good of
you to come. Now I can die
content.' He took the hand of
poor weeping little Simy and
placed it in mine. 'You will
look after him, dear Annie,'
he gasped. I assured him I
would cherish little Simy like
a mother.
'Yes, darling Annie,' were
his last whispered words. "It
is God's will. He will now be
a Kaddish to both of us.' She
walked along weeping silently.
I gave poor Annie my ad-
dress, and persuaded her, be-
fore parting, to write and let
me know how things went
with her and little Simy.
"Oh, Mr. Jacob," were her

last words to me," how can I
go on living? How I long to be
with him. I know it won't be
long before our little Simy
will be saying Kaddish for me

Holy Days in

the Trenches

machine guns, an occasional
burst of high explosive shells,
a gust of wind making the
candle lights flicker and
dwindle, the shadows of steel
helmeted men silhouetted like
blotches of black ink against
the mud encrusted walls of
my shelter were the accom-
paniment to the first memor-
ial service for the first cas-
uality in "C" company, the
Jewish lad from Pittsburgh.
Corporal Ervin, began the
Kaddish. \e tried to follow
and repeat. We stuttered and
stammered. Momentarily we
hesitated. Sobs, coughs. Joe
Ervin went on, though with a
voice husky and low. My Ma-
jor, commanding the First
Battalion stood by. He, a
Methodist, hardened veteran
of the Boxer rebellion in
China, and seasoned Ameri-
can War, turned about. Tears
coursed down his heavily
bearded face. His hands ner-
vously clutched his Sam
Browne belt.
The services were over. I
was alone. The Holy Days ini
the trenches were coming to
a close. The three candles
wer elurning low, sputtering,
flickering, it seemed to me,

ebbing away like a human
life, yes, even like Private-
-'s life.
The burning candles went
out. I threw myself on my
muddy blanket for a snatch
of sleep.
