After a spirited campaign,
al C. Cleary, long time resi-
dent of Miami Beach, Justice
f the Peace, and active com-
unal worker of the district
as elected Mayor of Miami
Beach over his opponents, A.
ank Katzentine and Col. H.
M. Bankhead, by a decisive
jidge Cleary who was de-
feated for the office two
ears ago by the narrow mar-
in of four votes claimed to
ave been illegally cast and
who declined to contest the
vote because of his intense
interest in the future of Mi-
i was happy at the result
ad the vote of confidence
given him by the citizens of
ami Beach. In an interview
with a representative of the
ewish Floridian, Mayor
Cleary said: "I am happy in-
eed to have received the
vote of confidence that the
citizens of Miami Beach have
given me, and I want to as-
ure all that I shall try to ad-
vance the interests of our
beautiful city so that all may
benefit. I shall be Mayor of
iami Beach in a manner be-
tting so cosmopolitan a city
nd shall remember that all
citizens are to be represented.
Now that the election is over

anyone, and I want you to say
to all that I.consider every
resident and citizen of Miami
ech my friend; that their
terests are my interests and
tat with their support I shall
edeavor to accomplish the
utmost for Miami Beach.
I want particularly to
thank my many Jewish
ends for their unselfish
support and cooperation in
carrying my campaign to a
successful conclusion and that
Shall try to justify the con,
~dence of the Jewish people."
Last Wednesday, Mayor
leary was inducted into of-
ce at a ceremony in the
council Chambers and was
given the oath of office by
the retiring Mayor, Snedigar.
Wednesday night Mayor
Cleary was the guest of honor
St the dance and ball of the
Beth Jacob Talmud Torah at

ress expressed the hope that
by supporting such institu-
ions as the Talmud Torah
more people would be drawn

thieved by Mayor Cleary is

(Dedicated to Chanukah)

Brothers! Arm for hearths and altars
Where's the man that halts or falters?
SArm for homes, for wives, for children
Arm for God and Creed!
With countless spearheads gleaming
The Grecian hosts are streaming
Across the land
With mighty hand
To crush our hopes for freedom!
God defending
We're contending
S Ever for our freedom dear;
Then arm to fight
For God and right
O! Strike for liberty!

Think how Egypt was defeated-
Think how Amalek retreated,
Think how triumph when completed
Reddened Hazor's streets!
If dangers have assailed us
Has God's compassion failed us
Whene're on high
We voiced the cry
Beseeching His protection?
His assistance
Means resistance
Shall be crowned with victory!
Then arm to fight
For God and right
O! Strike for liberty!

Hark-the trumpets shrill are sounding
Mountain-echoes are rebounding,
Foemen's war-cries are resounding-
Courage, brothers, all!
Again they would enslave us,
But God again will save us.
Then banish fear,
For God is near
His salvation
For our nation
Manifest shall ever be
Then to fight
For God and right!
O, Fight for Liberty!


New Rabbi to
Assume Duties

Rabbi Isaac M. Wapner of
New York city formerly of
Akron, Ohio, will arrive in Mi-
ami this morning to assume
charge of the Miami Jewish
Orthodox Congregation to
succeed Rabbi Samuel B.
Grinstein who resigned his
pastorate because of ill health.
Rabbi Wapner will preach
for the first time at the late
Friday evening services, to-
night. Rabbi Wapner is a gra-
duate of several Orthodox
seminaries and has been in
charge of congregations in
Philadelphia, Akron and New
York city. He comes highly
recommended by the congre-
gations which he served, and
accepted this charge in Mi-
ami only after a committee
had urged him to accept and
explained the splendid field
for communal and religious
work in the Miami district.

Orthodox Rabbi
Resigns Charge

Rabbi Samuel B. Grinstein,
for the past several months
the Rabbi of the Miami Jew-
ish Orthodox Congregation
resigned his charge last Sun-
day and left for Dallas, Tex.
last Tuesday night.
Rabbi- Grinstein who was
well liked by the members of
his congregation had been ill
since his arrival in Miami, and
a recurrence of injuries re-
ceived by him during the Au-
gust 1929 riots in Palestine,
aggravated his condition. On
the advice of his physician

Jewish Attdrney
Chosen to Council

For the first time in the
history of Southeastern Flor-
ida a Jew actively identified
with Jewish institutions and
in general Jewish communal
work was elected to office in
. metropolitan City.
Baron De Hirsh Meyer, a
prominent attorney of the
Greater Miami District, a na-
tive of Wisconsin, a graduate
of the University of Wiscon-
sin, secretary of the Greater
Miami Zionist District, active
worker in the Beth Jacob
Synagogue of Miami Beach,
was one of the five candidates

elected to the City Council of
Miami Beach out of a field of
fifteen candidates.
Generally considered by
many to have but little chance
of election, one of the rea-
sons being the fact that. he
was a Jew, Meyer made a re-
markable run and defeated
Harry Floyd for the past
eight years a member of the
City Council. He received
more than twelve hundred
votes and though he was vic-
tor over his closest opponent
by only twenty-two votes, he
was behind the next highest
candidate by only twenty
votes. Meyer was one of the
guests of honor at the Talmud
Torah Ball at Caretr's Pier
last Wednesday night and
was given a remarkable ova-
tion. In an interview with a
representative of the Jewish
Floridian, Mr. Meyer asked
that his thanks be ex-
pressed .to the Jews of Mi-
ami Beach and his many
friends of Miami who helped
*him in the election. "I shall
try to justify the election by
so conducting myself that
Jewry of Miami. Beach and
throughout will be proud of
my record. I realize that what
I shall do will be thoroughly
scrutinized, but all my friends
and the citizens of Miami
Beach may rest assured that
I shall do my utmost to per-
form my duties in a manner
that will benefit Miami Beach
and reflect credit upon all my
supporters," said Mr. Meyer.
He spoke in a similar vein
at the Ball last Wednesday
night at Carter's Pier for the
benefit of the Beth Jacob
Talmud Torah.

To sentimental Jews who
plant Christmas trees in their
living rooms, "for the sake of
the beautiful symbolism," we
recommend a trial of the love-
lines of Chanukah symbol-
"Oh," these rapt Jews ex-
claim, "it is for the poetry
and not for the religious sig-
nificance that we have a
Christmas tree in our house." e
We answer them: "But h
the poetry of your own faith e
misses your ears and its pa- v
gentry escapes your eyes.
You embrace Santa Claus,
but your children know noth- T
ing of the invisible gentle k
prophet to whom the doors of i
Jewish homes are opened on b
Passover eve.
"Poetry? For their faith

"And when at length they
had taken Jerusalem again
and had cleansed the temple,
they found in the lamp of the
perpetual light enough oil to
last only a day; but, it, burn-
ed eight days! A myth, sir?
It is poetry, lovelier than that
which sings for you in your
Christmas tree.
"And in the week of Chan-
ukah we light these candles,
one for each of the days in
which the oil burned so mir-
aculously in the temple; that
the children may understand
that the light which was kind-
led then has not been quench-
ed even unto this hour."

A girl is always sure she is

it is.

As I stepped out of the Grand Central Station the other
day I saw entering it a man whose face seemed familiar
and after a moment's thought I placed him. He is one o
the most distinguished members of the legal profession i
America. He was a member of the Cabinet of a former
President, and was himself mentioned for the Presidency
On a sudden impulse I turned and followed him.
The station was full of commuters hurrying to their
trains. They looked at him, and through him and around
him, but apparently nobody recognized him. He jostled hi
way across the great floor, down a pair of steps to the plain
form of the subway. And there the crowd crushed hil
into the minimum number of cubic inches and flung hii
into an express train.
My last view of him was as he stood with his face press
ed against the glass door, a completely squeezed and hai
assed looking man, in no way different frQ.. thseltel
ing others in the car.
Not one of those others knew that he had been a Cal
inet Minister, helping to shape the destinies of a nation dm
ing the greatest war. Nor would they have cared, probably
if they had known.
It has been remarked frequently that the really big ma

fold. In the first place, he knows how much of his success
has been due to causes beyond his own control-his birti
his education, his business opportunities. And he know
too, what a thin and evanescent thing is fame.
He has walked through places like Central Park an
looked at the statues. These are great men who lived onl
yesterday-fifty or a hundred or a hundred and fifty yeai
ago. Yet how few of them one can recognize without lool
ing at the names. And if their fame is already so fade

The theory of the British gov-

has been that while the people

The cost of postal service ought
to be paid by the people who use

Moreover, the business house is
using the mail for purposes of
