To Be Reorganized
The Chesed Shel Emes (Free
Burial) Society is to be reorgan-
ized as the result of several con-
ferences recently held between the
officers and directors of the So-
ciety and committees representing
the Beth David Synagogue, Miami
Jewish Orthodox Congregation
and the Beth Jacb Congregation
of Miami Beach. Under the pro-
posed plan of reorganization, three
delegates from each of the Syna-
gogues will be added to the board
of directors of the society, and
the augmented board will be in
absolute control of the cemetery
operated by the society at Wood-
lawn. The organization is to re-
ceive all revenues arising from
burials, etc., as well as the receipts
from the Rummage sales conduct-
ed by the Society's Ladies Auxili-
ary. Recently there was a change
in the officers of the organization,
the presidents of both the Ladies
and Men's organizations resigning.
An election for officers will be
held after the reorganization is

The Ford Motor Company's
profits for 1930 were $55,000,000,
and the company has $300,000,000
in cash resources. The General
Motors Corporation earned a pro-
fit of 176,922,650 in 1930 and has
cash resources of $364,000,000.
The General Motors Corporation
paid $9,538,660 in dividends to
stockholders, and over $10,000,000
to its employees in bonuses and
special stock dividends. Ford paid
a higher average scale of wages
and no bonuses. All the stock in
the Ford Company of America is
owned by the Ford family. Mr.
Ford bought out all the others so
he would not have to consult a
board of directors when he wants
to make an experiment costing
millions of dollars.
He was the pioneer in the in-
dustrial policy of steadily reduc-
ing the price of the product as the
market broadened, and the success
of General Motors has been large-
ly based upon following the path
first marked out by Henry Ford.
He was the first to establish the
eight hour day and the five day
week in industry, and is now work-
ing on a plan for a ten month
year for industrial workers, at
the same annual rate of pay that
they now earn in twelve months.

A MOVE IN THE RIGHT
Quietly and without ostentation
a splendid move towards the
achievement of honesty and de-
cency in the handling of "Kosher"
meats is being made and from all
indications it appears certain that
it will meet with success.
In the past years too many
flagrant violations of everything
that is honest and fair has been
a rule rather than an exception
in every matter concerning "Kas-
hrus" in Miami Beach. What with
admitted substitutions of "Trei-
fahs" for "Kosher," with the ad-
mitted falsification of tags, of
signatures yet nothing was
accomplished because of the un-
concern of the Jewish population
of Miami Beach.
Today the story is changing .
Thanks to the efforts of the Jews
of Miami Beach, spurred on and
urged on by its splendid Rabbi, an
end to these unfair dealings is
being made. Every shipment of
meat arriving from out of the
city is zealously and carefully
guarded. Every precaution is
taken so that no substitution may
occur. Locally, through the co-
operation of Miami's two splen-
did cattle "shochtim", the same
safeguards are being placed. When
one pays for Kosher meats in
Miami Beach, he may now receive
them if he is careful and cautious.
A sign saying that a place sold
kosher meats was left over from
the past season, and a woman
coming in for a kosher chicken
afterwards found that no shocked
was employed there though she
was led to believe that she bought
a kosher chicken, was removed by
Rabbi Axelrod as soon as this rep-
rehensible incident was reported...
We congratulate Miami Beach
on its splendid move. We trust
that other communities will fol-
low suit and with the support of
the Jewish puh*, the butchers
will be enabled to carry on an
honest policy and be enabled to
earn an honest and decent liveli-

the annual "Shvuoth" supper and

ning were Mrs. Mary Schrebnick

JOHN JOSEPH GCANES M.D.
We hear it, read it, sense it in the very air, "roughage." It's
the slogan of the swivel-chair patriot, whose colon has been on a
strike for the last twenty rubber-tired years. Treat 'em rough, these
tired, lazy-stuffed colons; just got to have roughage!
-and repented of the sins right away,-the first victory for roughage
Well, the prodigal son ate the husks which the swine didn't take
so to speak. Then he lost no time getting back to the fatted calf-
the smooth diet.
Let's talk about bran-shorts, "tailings," husks of wheat, or what
have you? The sort recommended by solemn physicians, smug dieti-
cians and artful manufacturers; and let's talk sense.
I have not found one in twenty-five routine investigations, upon
whom bran had the least effect in obstinate constipation. 'I have
tested carefully in my own case; I might as well have taken that
much Portland cement, so far as laxative effect was noticeable.
Sometimes I wonder how many pecks of bran one would have to
eat, to acquire a single grain of iron? And what form of iron?
Possibly a trace of ferrous oxide-rust! There is as much iron in a
single Blaud pill as there is in a bushel of wheat bran,-so there.
One of the latest and best books I have found, condemns
"roughage" as a routine procedure in lazy colons-a practice that
may actually do serious harm, and I agree most emphatically. The
"smooth diet" is far more rational to coax the weary organ back to
normal function; I do not believe in whipping the tired horse to re-
store his vigor.
If commercialism were taken out of this country, and our people
used real food and exercise instead of substitutes, we'd live longer.

Darkness and Dawn
(Continued from Last Week)
When silence fell upon those
who worshipped a true man, Isaac
dropped his salute, felt for his
chair, gathered his instrument to
himself and then drew his bow
across the waiting strings. The
'cello rippled like laughter. Those
who listened felt the exhiliration
of their first days at camp, fol-
lowed by their joyful embarka-
tion. They could hear the disson-
ant confusion of the noises of New
York Harbor streaming up against
the wash of the sea against the
sides of their transport. Every per-
son who had been a part of that
host of heroes, lived over the anx-
ious voyage to Europe. As the

master musician advanced through
his program, it was as though he
were painting pictures. The sil-
ence of the submarine zone gave
way to the clatter of landing in
Brest. Again the notes danced,
sang, marched and stirred men's
blood. Isaac forgot that silenced
throng; bending over his instru-
ment, he lived again those eager
days of advancement towards the
Zone of Action. His 'cello talked,
laughed, sobbed and leaped to
frenzy-the frenzy of war. Those
who listened, even the unmusical,
knew that they were hearing
something unique, something be-
yond words, something thrusting
through the veil of human life
from above. As the members -of
D Company listened to the final
number, they knew that their
Lieutenant was again groping in
darkness, as he had groped when
disastofell upon him. Strong men
Rachael Bloomstein, seated in
the. wings, heard the instrument
throb like a giant's heart and then
mute into an aching calm: when
the calm had become absolute, free
even from the flares of disson-
ance, the dissonance that had
streaked up against the theme-
motive of battle, she who had
mothered this man's genius knew
that the man in front of the foot-
lights was capturing in music the
dawn of a light that had never
become dimmed: the dawn that
had recreated his soul.
When the last burst of thunder-
ous applause had been answered,
and after she had rescued the ex-
hausted musician from his own
men, Rachael stood alone with
Isaac Baker. As she pulled on
the corduroy 'cello case, she whis-
"You were divine. I expected
you to take the house by storm,
but tonight you have surpassed hu-
man expectation." She saw the
man grope towards her, his arm
outstretched. She could hear him
insisting, "I owe everything to
"Nonsense," she managed to
protest; "you owe your success to
the talent which God has given to
you, cultivated by your own splen-
did courage." She felt the man's
arms encircle her: his words seem-
ed to be coming out of dream-
"I recognize the truth of all that
you are saying, but it was you who
showed me the dawn. Rachael, if I
were not blind If I had a
man's right I would fall in
love with you.
All of the inhibited love of long
months of self-control rose within
the heart of Rachael Bloomstein.
Flinging her arms around Isaac's
neck, she kissed his sightless eyes,
"You speak of a man's right!
You offer blindness as a barrier
between our hearts. It is you
who have brought the Dawn of
Love to me. Love is like your
divine music, it surmounts every
Into the silence of that blessed
moment came the noise of some-
one at the door.
"What do you want?" choked
the Son of the Muses.
"Mr. Raffbloom is out here; ha
wants to sign you up for a tour
of the world."
The voice that answered was
tremulous with emotion:
"Please ask Mr. Raffbloom to
excuse me tonight. I am setting
out to the Land of Dawn."
"Why don't you get out and
hustle? Hard work never killed
anybody," counseled the philoso-
"You're mistaken dar, boss," re-

SING A SONG
When the human needs press
Take the time to hum a song.
Banish visions of despair,
Seem to know they are'nt there.
When the mortal problems press,
Sing a song of gratefulness.
Gratitude for little things,
Often times great blessing brings.
When "in clover" going strong,
Take time out to hum a song.
Sing a song of joy, and praise,
With a though of other days.
