Miami, Florida, Friday, March 14, 1930


Price 5 Cents


(Continued from last Week)
NOW, the scoffers who had
smiled in that superior
fashion when the Spinoza in-
cident was mentioned, are de-
monstrating to a thoroughly
incensed world how they re-
act under similar conditions.
They do not offer pensions
for voluntary outward con-
formity; the choice lies be-
tween untruthful denial of
base practices or even eulog-
izing those barbaric practices
or death. The result is whole-
sale slaughter.

SYNAGOGUES that contain
a five thousand year old
culture are being transform-
ed into "cultural" clubs here
the ignorant; spitefuJ'work-
ingman may play checkers.
(if he is intellectually inclin-
ed or imbibe "VODKA" while
gloating over the masterful
trick he played on the "su-
perstitious fools." Ruthless
domination, wholesale slaugh-
ter, dictatorial censoring of
the press, personal govern-
ment guidance of distinguish-
ed visitors to Russia lest they
see what they ought and must
not see, and bitter, determin-
ed persecution-these are the
arts the social Messiahs of the
Soviet contemporary govern-
ments. According to the laws
of the capitalistic countries
the corpse may be disposed of
by the surviving relatives as
they see fit. Not so with the
enlightened Soviet, that is all
powerful even. with the dead.
In conformity with its highly
lauded humaneness it has
lately decreed that all corpses
must be cremated.
What shall the millions of
Jewish inhabitants do, whose
religion enjoins them to bury
their dead? What shall other
millions do, who believe, fool-
ishly, if you will, that they
are profaning the bodies of
their beloved ones by offer-
ing them up to the fire? The
answer is: you are to have
no religion and the will of the
State supersedes any and all
foolish sentimentalities. Burn
the bodies or you are traitors
to the cause. (Cause, is spelt
with a capital C).

THE only thrust that would
probably hurt the omnis-
cient radicals and puncture
their self-inflated importance,
I believe, would be to display
their lack of originality. And
in this last practice, too, that
of not permitting the burying
of the dead they are exhibit-
ing a woeful lack of original-
ity. For long before the exalt-
ed era of Kari Marx, Ferdi-
nand Lassalle aid and Lenin,
back in the year 235 ignorant
Magi and the entire Ahuram-
zada and Ahriman worship-
ping neo-persians forbade the
Jews to bury their dead, be-
cause they considered that
Spent Aramaita or Holy soil
would be polluted if corpses
were placed in her.
What a calamitous disaster!

An elderly man dressed in
overalls, stout shoes, two
sweaters and a heavy blue
shirt hung on top of a large
sign at the corner of Linden
Boulevard and East 58th St.,
Brooklyn, until a policeman's
attention was directed to it.
Hundreds of automobiles pass
this corner every hour and yet
none noticed the dead body
until hours later.

ed, glorious epoch imitating
the practices of obscure, fana-

Special Purim services were
held ,at Beth David Synago-
gue, Miami, and Congregation
Beth Jacob, Miami Beach. The
"Megillah" was read, and the
Thursday night services at
Beth David were featured by
addresses by Rabbi Israel H.
Weisfeld and Rabbi Marcus,
of Boston, Mass., the latter
making an eloquent appeal for
the "Ezras Torah" Fund. On
Friday morning the regular
services for Purim will be con-
ducted at both Synagogues.

PURIM


EDISON
Think for a minute of what one
man, still active in his 84th year, has
done to change the world in a single
lifetime. He made the telephone a
practical instrument. He invented
the incandescent light. He invented
the phonograph. He invented the
motion picture. Imagine a world
without those inventions. It is im-
possible, except to those whose
memories, like my own, go back to
the time when Edison was known
only as the inventor of the multi-
plex telegraph.
SNow he has found a way to get
rubber out of goldenrod, not as a
commercial product but as a war
reserve resource. And he is still
working.
"A man can't die so long as he
keeps busy," he told me once.
j"-------
MUSIC
Good music is increasing in pop-
ularity, but there are more musi-
cians out of work than ever before.
We are getting our music more and
more by mechanical methods of re-
production.
First the phonograph, then the
radio, now the sound motion pictures,
have brought the very best music,
played and sung by the highest grad
of musical talent, within rear. of
everybody. The largest piano com-
pany in America went-into bank-
ruptcy recently. Pianos are still
sold, and always will be. There will
always be youngsters with talent
coming along to produce the good
music of tomorrow. And there are
more "freak" instruments being sold
than ever-saxophones, ukeleles and
the like. There are probably more
first-class singers of American birth
and training, appearing in public
now than ever before. But the sec-
ond-rate and hopelessly third-rate
musicians no longer command audi-
ences. The American people have
.developed a higher taste in music.


RUBBER
Rubber gets its name because its
first use was to rub out pencil
marks. The Spanish conquistadores
found Mexican and Brazilian c',;1-
dren playing with balls of this .i-
culiar gum, but it was three hundred
years before it became a commercial
product. Mackintosh, the Scotr'
man, used it first to watcrloof
cloth; Goodyear, the American,
found how to take the stickiness out
while retaining the elasticity.
A very small amount of commer-
cial rubber is grown in the United
States, in California and Arizona,
where it is produced from the
guayule shrub. Most of it comes
from the East Indies and South
America. Harvey Firestone is plant-
ng a million acres to rubber trees
in Liberia, Africa. Unskilled cheap
labor is necessary to keep the price
of rubber down. A difference of
50 cents a pound in the price of
crude rubber may mean a difference
bf $10 in the price of automobile
tires.
The next step will be the discov-
ery of a method of reclaiming old
rubber and using it again.
LAWS
It ought to be apparent IDv tliio
Time that the effort to iaike p).o(:,'
good by passing laws ik a failure.
The other day a judge in New York
entered a young woman to prison
life He had no option; it was

we are omld of them. Our prison
population has doubled in twenty
years. As we grow more prosper-
ous we become more afraid of the
uprosperous. It might be a good
plan to spend S much money trying
to keep people out of prison as we
upend now to keep them in it.


It is to be regretted that
Purim as a holiday should
hold such scant meaning for
the present generation of
Jews and Jewesses. Until
within the past year or two,
it had lost even the value at-
taching to it of the merest
traditional interest. With the
general revival, however, in
matters Jewish, which seems
to be the distinguishing mark
o these latter days, a renew-
ed desire has come on the
part of Jews to restore to
their lives some of the ideals
and traditions cherished with
such love and loyalty by their
forefathers. There are still
many among us who can re-
call the annual recurrence of
Purim among the Jews as the
merriest and quaintest of
holidays, given over to feast-
ing and jollity as well as to
practical philanthropy among
the poor of their race. And
truly wonderful in its inspira-
tion to joyous well-doing is
this feast day of Purim. We,
who are so little versed in our
Bibles that the Book of Esther
passes current among us as
so much historical record to
be shelved with thA rest of
ancient tradition, should bring
into requisition our abilities
as inveterate novel-readers,
and merely as an experiment
apply our minds to the per-
usal of this book as we should
to a bit of modern fiction.
From a literary point of view
alone the result would be
found to be more than ample
reward for the unusual exer-
cise.

le the sight and intoxicate the
senses, moves the girlish fig-
ure white as her virgin vest-
ments of filmy gauze, palpi-
tating as the pearls that clasp
at girdle and shoulder, and
lie even upon the tiny white-
sandalled feet. Such is Hadas-
sah, niece of Mordecai, chosen
by the royal ambassadors to
be inmate of the House of
Virgins until such time as she
may appear before the king.
A slight push from her at-
tendant, and she stands alone,
within the hush and stillness
of the royal presence, under
the dreamy gaze of the mon-
arch, who sits in self-imposed
solitude upon his throne. Who
shall say what it is that
draws human souls one to the
other? Or who can define its
power when once its spell has
been established over heart
and mind ? Most potent power,
most magical of spells, that
has imparted to the unknown
Jewish maiden loveliness so
transcendent, guilelessness of
soul so noble and perfect that
all else of beauty and virtue
pales into insignificance,
fades and seems as nothing
beside hers. Before the simple
majesty of this virgin pres-
ence the king has been van-
quished in the man, and Had-
assah has become for him
"Esther the Beautiful,"
Queen Royal over his heart
and life, as she is destined to
be queen throughout his en-
tire reign over the affairs of
the vast Persian empire.

the way for soulful devotion
to its mission of love and jus
tice and peace to all humanity


intrigue of modern courts was
the intrigue of ancient days
in the courts of the Persian
kings. Scene after scene, shif-
ting and changing, discloses
Mordecai defamed, disgraced,
hated, and threatened, while
Haman, his arch-enemy, hater
of the Jews, and plotting
against them, gloats over his
downfall. A step onward in
the march o ftime and presto!
behold Mordecai arrayed in
purple and ermine, mounted
upon a richly caparisoned
steed from the royal stables,
"the man whom the king de-
lighted to honor;" and his
herald compelled to proclaim
him throughout the streets-
none other than Haman de-
feated, cursing his ill-starred
plans, and vowing eternal ven-
gence upon the man and his
race. Again the scene changes.
A whole race doomed to cruel
death and extermination thru
the unscrupulous ambition
and evil inciting of a Zeresh
(wife of Haman); the same
race raised from out of its
despair and anguish, from the
direst of fates by the simple
courage and unselfish devo-
tion of an Esther. Plot and
counterplot, character plastic
and human as is the human
character of all ages; love,
hate, ambition, loyalty to race
and faith, merged and blended
into one dramatic theme,
gathered into one thrilling,
graphic narrative, affording
endless food for thought for
tender hope, for unquestion-
ing trust in the God of Israel.
Is it any wonder that the
practice of reading the Me-
gillah, or Chronicle of Esther,
has been maintained by count-
less generations of Jews?
What is religion, if it does not
stir the soul to pay tribute to
heroic deeds whose springs of
action lie in faith and reliance
upon the love and wisdom of
God, the Creator of man and
the universe? How better evi-
dence one's homage to a wo-
man in whose heart glowed
the fire of a holy purpose than
by recounting, year -after
year, the story of a nation's
travail and its salvation of a
queen, faithfullest of the
daughters of Israel? Well may
Purim be called carnival time
for the Jews-time when they
may lay anxieties and bur-
dens aside, divest themselves

MERRY PURIM


Two little girls were over-
heard .the other day in con-
versation. From the questions
and answers of the one it was
evident that she lived in Jew-
ish surroundings, in an at-
mosphere that fosters the
Jewish home life, with its
love of tradition and respect
for the Law. The other, it will
be seen at once, had been rear-
ed-as so many of our child-
ren as reared nowadays-
with but faint knowledge of
the history of her race and
with absolutely none as re-
gards her present duty to her
religion. She was Jewish by
birth, of that she was certain,
as children somehow are cer-
tain of facts and circum-
stances connected with their
lives not specially dilated up-
on by their elders.

Certainly; don't I dress every
day ?"
"0, I don't mean that. I
mean, are you going to dress
up especially, with masks and
faces and costumes and fancy
dress, as we do?"
"Why, I never heard any-
thing about it. Who said we
should ?"
"Nobody said so specially,
only we always do, every year.
Why, we're going to have
Ruth, Rebecca, Esther, Geo.
Washington, Napoleon, Julius
Caesar, Martha Washington,
Empress Josephine, Hypatia,
and-and ever so many oth-
ers."
"You don't say so! That
will be fun! Tell me about it.
Who's going to make the
dresses for you?"
"0, we make them our-
selves. You mustn't suppose
they are very grand. We don't
mind the stuff they're made
of; it's just the fun of being
somebody different, and let-
ting papa and mama and all
the company guess who we
are."
"But what's it all about-
anybody's birthday party or
anniversary ?"
"Why, no; it's Purim. Did-
n't you ever hear of Purim?"
"No; who's he ?"
"Didn't you ever hear any-
thing about Purim? Never
heard about Mordecai and Ha-
man and Queen Esther, and
how they hanged Haman on
the very gallows he had built
for Mordecai? Don't you go
to Sunday school?"
"No; mamma says I could-


n't understand what they
teach in Sunday school."
"0, well, maybe not. Then
I'll tell you."
And the surprised little
girl, who could not quite con-
ceive such ignorance, gave a
very good account, colored by
a child's vivid imagination, of
the story of Esther as it is
written in the Bible, to which
her companion listened with
breathless interest. "And my
mamma says," the narrator
concluded, "that this is one
of the happiest holidays for
the Jews."
"Well, of course," assented
the other. "Do you think, if I
tell my mamma all about it,
she'll let me have a party ?"
"0, you needn't have a
party this year. Come to my
house. We're going to have
lots of fun; and you can help
me give away my Purim mon-
ey, too."
"What's that ?"
"It is not much, only a
quarter apiece to give away
to the poor. It's our Purim
money."
"0," sighed the much be-
wildered and partly enlight-
ened child, "I do wish mamma
would tell me about every-
thing, and let me go to Sun-
day school."
And so do we, For of all
pitiable children these help-
less, rich Jewish waifs, who
are shut out from the sweet-
est pleasures of life through
the narrow-minded, bigotry
and ignorance of their irrelig-
ious and quasi-cultured par-
ents, are most to be com-
miserated.
Let the imagination dwell
for a second on the pretty
sight it would make, if Jewish
children throughout every
land could reach out and touch
each other's hands on this
royally festive day of Purim,
could see the merry, dancing
light in each other's eyes, and
know it to be the reflection
of joy and pride in their beau-
tiful ancestress, whose nobil-
ity and true womanhood sav-
ed a whole people from death.
What a beautiful circle it
would form upon the earth's
surface, and how their happy
laughter and sweet gayety
would amuse, and brighten,
and even glorify this steadily
revolving old world of ours!
Perhaps the circle is already
forming-who knows? Shall
not we on this side help it
along by wishing each other
this year a merry Purim, with
all its pleasures and all its
kindliness, all its tender mem-
ories and beautiful, helpful
traditions? A merry, merry,
joyous Purim!

Never tell a girl she looks
sweet enough to kiss. Actions
speak louder than words.

It sometimes happens that
the bride is the best man at
the wedding.
More than half the time

Hands
I had a vision of hands,
Haunting and weird, like
the dead;
Human hands, groping in
need;
Hungry hands, reaching
for bread.

Out of the darkness they
came,
And they appeared unto me
Armless and bodiless hands,
Thrust from a turbulent
sea.

Hands of strong men in
despair,
Eager and anxious to moil,
Willing hands, knotted and
worn,
Asking just bread for their
toil.

Hands of the gaunt and the
weak,
Of underfed mothers who
sigh,
Holding wee babes that are
stirved
To loose, shrunken breasts
that are dry.

Ghastly and impotent hands,
Frantically clutching the
air,
While through the finger
escape
Long-cherished visions, and
fair.

Hands of all nations there
were,
Of each race and color and
creed;
Few, very few, clasped in
love--
Myriads snatching in greed,
These are the hands that I
saw--
Ominous hands in the
night,,
Reaching for more, ever
more,
Grasping the scepter of
might.

Mr. Longbrush-Yes, I did.
I hid that money there so my

Homebody-It's my wife's

"VERY LATEST"
By Mary Marshall
One of the surprises on the
fashion program for 1930 is the re-
turn of the "shirt-waist." And I,
for one, would never have chosen
this fashion of the past for revival
The ver-jword shirt-waist is one
that has been banished from the
vocabulary of the fashion reporter,
who has long since learned to sub-
stitute the words blouse or bod-


ice for the sort of thing that was
once called a "waist."
But here it is-the shirtwaist of
1930; and there is no longer any-
doubt of its acceptance.
The picture shows a shirtwaist
of beige georgette worn with a
tan tweed skirt.

construction of the boat. The
boat is composed of two hulls
or pontoons and a plate glass
in a frame is suspended on
pulleys in the open space be-
tween the two hulls; this
glass is lowered when the
boat reaches the submarine
gardens so as to present a
distortion of the view as when
the glass is lowered an unob-
structed view of the sub-
marine life of Florida is given
showing the beautiful flora
and fauna of the sub-tropics.
The trip consumes more than
four and one half hours and
travels a little more than
forty miles south. The beauti-
ful Deering estate, the Cape
Florida Lighthouse and other
interesting sights including
the mangrove swamps are
viewed by the travelers. Un-
fortunately too few travelers
take advantage of the splen-
did educational and informa-
tive trip, and recently this Se-
Bot-M boat was confused with
a socalled glass bottom boat
which sunk in the Bay several
weeks ago. The very construc-
tion of the boats soon demon-
strated the safety of the Se-
Bot-M boat. During the trip
there was dancing and re-
freshments were served. The
party returned to Miami a
little after 6:30 and declared
the trip was one of the pleas-
ant thoughts they would al-
ways carry with them of Flor-
ida.

Rabbi Samuel Yallow of
Congregation Beth Jacob will
leave Miami Beach on next
Monday morning to resume
his duties with his two Syra-
cuse Congregations. Mrs. Yal-
lo wand children will remain
in Miami until after the Pass-
over holidays.
Rabbi M. Marcus of Boston,
the father-in-law of Rabbi
Yallow of Miami Beach will
leave the early part of next
week for his home in Boston,
Mass. He has endeared him-
self to the many friends he
has made during his brief stay
in Miami, where he came for a
brief visit to his daughter and
son-in-law. While here he
made an intensive campaign
for the "Ezras Torah" Fund
in which he has been an active
worker for many years.
A ripe old age is sometimes
as agreeable as a green per-
simmon.


Zaro Agha, six feet tall and 156
years old, has buried eleven wives and.
as a good Mohammedan, never took a
drink. He lives at Istamboul, Turkey.


The Way of Life
By BRUCE BARTON


I ONCE had the misfortune to know a pessimist. There
was some excuse for his pessimism. He was aw narrow-
chested chap threatened with tuberculosis. -,.
He had given himself up for lost.
One night somebody induced him to go to a singing
school.
A year later his chest was filled out; there was a sparkle
in his eye; his laugh could be heard a city block away.
He had learned how to breathe.
Even when you practice deep breathing exercises you
probably do not fill your entire lung capacity. You expand
your chest; but the really important part of your breathing
is done with your diaphragm-a big flat muscle that forms
the floor of your chest.
And the abdominal muscles are the boys you need to train
if you are to get the most out of your diaphragm.
Fill your lungs until you feel your stomach muscles hard
against your belt.
That means that your diaphragm has straightened down
and is massaging the top of your stomach and intestines-
helping along with the process of elimination.
When you breathe out, do it forcibly, with the stomach
muscles: like a horse snorting-but without the snort.
Your stomach and intestines will be forced up against
the diaphragm again and given another massage.
Breathing in is important, but breathing out is much
more important.
Read sometime a book by a man like Thoreau, or odhn
Burroughs, or Stewart Edward White-one of the great open-
air writers.
Then, while the impression of its rich, bounding optimism
is still strong upon you, pick up a book written by one of the
Russian novelists, or by one of our modern longhaired writers
who believe that realism necessarily means murder and
drunkenness and prostitution.
What a difference! And what makes the difference?
The realist will tell you that it is because he thinks
deeply, while the optimistic writer thinks superficially.
As a.matter of fact, the difference is not in the brains
of the two men, but in their livers.
It is not the depth of their thinking so much as the depths
of their lungs.
The corpuscles of the one are red and fed with oxygen;
the corpuscles of the other are pale and fed with cigarette
smoke and germs.
"For what, after all, is Life?" asks an od Sanskrit quota-
tion. And answers:
"Life is the interval between one breath and another-
he who only half breathes only half lives.".


Proper Weights
Urged by Doctor
BALTIMORE, March 12-
Blaming false standards of
beauty for some of the pre-
sent ills, Dr. Leweys F. Bark-
er of the Johns Hopkins Uni-
versity school of medicine,
speaking to the Business and
Professional Women's club of
Baltimore, said the right
weight for an adult should be
110 pounds for 5 feet in
height with 51/2 pounds add-
ed for each additional inch.
More than 10 pounds under
or above the ideal weight calls
for changes in the diet, with
an increase or decrease of cal-
