We extend our sincere con-
gratulations to the Miami
Chapter Senior Hadassah. We
know of the struggle that
went. on within the ranks as
to the selection of a place for
the installation of the newly
elected officers. A very splen-
did step in the right move-
ment has been taken by the
organization. We sincerely
trust that all Jewish organ-
izations will realize that
their affairs should be held
where "Kosher" meals may
be served. That is the policy
that has been adopted by
every national organization
such as the Hadassah, the
Zionist Organization of
America and others. The din-
\ner in the Palatial Kosher
Restaurant is a splendid
move. The officers and com-
mittee are to be commended.

tion of the most important
episode in the history of the
Jewish people. The giving to
the Jewish people of the
"Torah," the Bible. That
which has given to us the
name of the "people of the
book." We celebrate that
feast today. Confirmations of
children have been held in

our neighbors and receiving
those rights which every cit-
izen should have because of
his rightful dues. And yet in
this age of civilization, in
this this time of modernity,
in the era of so called com-
mon understanding and good
will, a man of standing, an
attorney of rank, a former
member of the judiciary
finds it necessary in the de-

say to a Juky, "You must not

The audience cheered.
I thought of Thomas Carlyle who, when fame came
to him, looked backed from the fashionable society of Lon-

humble parents whose self-sacrifice had made his career
possible. Said he:
"I feel to my father, so great though so neglected, so
generous always towards me, a strange tenderness pecu-
liar to the case, infinitely soft and near my heart. Was
he not a sacrifice to me?"
And he added: "I can see his life in some measure

he spoke to them seriously on all subjects as if they were
grown men; at night, when work was over, he taught them
arithmetic; he borrowed books for them on history, science,
and theology... He would go to his daughter as she stayed
afield herding cattle, to teach her the names of the grasses
and wild flowers, or to sit by her side when it thundered."
I thought of the father of John Stuart MiH, neglect-
ing his own interests in order to work patiently at the edu-
cation of his boy; of Thomas Lincoln, struggling to keep
his poverty-stricken family together-of all the uncounted
hosts of hidden fathers "sunken pillars" who suf-

These are legion, in name, form, and content. It has
always been a mystery to me, why people often insist on
purgative medicines that do more to irritate the digestive
tract than they do to restore a deranged function; there are
folks who want their livers "shaken up," and will bear
with a night of griping pain, in the belief that they need
a good "stirring up."
Last week an elderly woman came into my office for
advice about a pain near the point of the right shoulder-
blade; her home physician had given her some pills for it, but
he had told her to take them only once a week. She showed
me the box that held her supply-it was labelled "Com-
pound Cathartic." I agreed that the pills were good, but
I told her I would take them only once every four or six

me your hand, please."
The woman obeyed.
"I can never thank you
sufficiently for your tender-

that the man could not see

his memory; then he felt as
