A enoperative advertising cam-

Friday, it was decided at a meet-
ing of the Miami Avenue Associ-
ation in' the Stan~dard Shoe Com-

A special sale lasting through
Friday and Saturday next week
will be the opening gun in a drive
to emphasize the advantages to
shoppers of patronizing stores lo-
cated on Miami avenue between
Flagler and Fifth streets.
A resolution was passed urging
members of the association to
keep their display windows light-
ed until at least 10 p. m. daily, and
members decided to petition the
city to have all street lamps kept
lighted until 11 p. m.
A traffic committee composed
of J. D. Phillips, Larry Fay, J.
Fink, H. A. McCarthy and Daniel
Cromer was appointed to invest~i-
gate the possibility of improving
traffic conditions on the avenue.
More than 95 per cent of mer-

When Mrs. Esther Waldstein of
2610 Webb avenue, Detroit, Mich.,
turned on the faucets of the bath-
tub last week at her home she was
surprised to find ginger ale flow-
ing freely therefrom. She tried
the faucets on her kitchen sink
and again found ginger ale com-
ing through. An investigation
showed that in making repairs to
the plumbing of a capdy store on
the ground floor the plumber had
connected the pipes of a large gin-
ger ale tank to the water pipes of
Mrs. Waldstemn's apartment.

that's the end of it.

that there are Jewish firms thit

of Jews. The bright Jewish boy
learns rapidly and may, in time,

they are afraid of. There are those
who want only help that will stay
put. We may not complain against
non-Jewish employers so long as
there are Jews who discriminate
against their own people."
And so, because the Jewish em-

difficulty they do in obtaining el-

ing the difficulty of finding em-
ployment on account of their be-
ing of our people. This applies to
Jewish women as well as Jewish
men. The complaint to which I
here allude is by no means new.
But it has become much more
acute by reason of the large num.
ber of Jewish women who now
seek to earn their own daily bread.
Years ago few Jewish women
whose families were any thing li k e
well-placed were expected to do
otherwise than rely on "papa" for
all their financial needs. That day
has gone by, and with its passage
there has come a commendable
spirit of independence among our
The difficulties that are met
with by Jewish employes are not
a few. Some of those who write
to me bitterly complain that they
are bound if they are to find work
to "give up their religion." That
is to say they have -to be at their
job on Sabbaths and Holy days
and to the conscientious Jew that
is indeed hard measure. It is ren-
dered all the harder when Sab-
bath and Holy day services is de-
manded of them by fellow-Jews.
One young man writes to tell me
how he applied to a gentleman
holding a prominent position in
the community--a synagogue war-
den and that sort of thing--and
after an interview was engaged.
But he was astonished to be told
that only usual general holidays
and Sundays were allowed. I am
afraid my correspondent is not of
the .tactful-horrible word--breed
For he tells me that he ended the
interview and engagement by tell-
ing the employer that he could not
think of taking a situation where
he was expected to work on Yom
Kippur Koton. That was a Calen-
dar day the -man evidently did not
understand, because he replied that
he might "consider" letting off
the applicant for Yom Kippur if
he cared to put in anotheroff-day
in place of it. But my correspon-
dent was adamant and so ended
the matter. He tells me that he
was induced to his irony because
in no circumstances would he
work for what he calls a double.

he sized up a synagogue warden
"who could himself go smugly to
his conventicle, his top hat gleam-
ing with effusive righteousness,
smugly presiding over the serv-
ice," whil4 he was Qeping fellow-
Jews at work whe~e I am again
qluoting--"they could not even get
the smell of talith." There will, of
course, be those who think that
the employer was well rid of the
opportunity of such an employee.
But for my part I believe that a
young man who could act as he did
and who was gifted with so much
chin must have had in him the
makings of a useful man. Nat-
urally, for such as he who are
faithful to religious practice
among us, non-Jewish employment
is virtually barred. Although
among other communications I
have received on the subject these
last few months were one in whien
a young Jewish woman told me
how she applied to a non-Jewish
firm for a situation, and was ac-

proprietor when terms had been

baths and Holy Days ?" "Oh, no,"

is well worth bearing in mind on
the topic at hand.
1There are, however, other less
simple and more complex difficul-
Sties that confront the Jewish em-
ploye. Non-Jews do not care to
emplo y them sometimes from
sheer anti-Jewish feeling, or be-
cause, as was explained to one of
those who wrote me by the head
of the firm to whom he applied:
"It would never do for me to have
all srtm o athgh ga utwol m en
in the hands of the Jews."' This,
be it said, was a firm in a country
district, although I imagine that
it is not such an extreme instance
of the sort of sentiment to which
I allude as may be supposed. But
non-Jews I find are at one with
Jews in preferring not to engage
Jewish employes because, so they
say, it almost invariably mea~s
giving the best opportunity for a
prospective comp koled theater
employer on this point and he ac.
knowleiged that he would not em-

I asked him about Jewish wom-
en and he said it came to the same
thing, because they obtained the
requisite acquaintance with his
business and transmitted it either
to some other employer who would
pay them a higher salary, or to
some relation, or more probably
the young man of her choice, who
would thereby set up in business a
for himself. A non-Jewish employ-
er whom I asked also why he
would not employ Jews told me
much the same thing. He disdain-
ed anything like anti-Jewish feel-
ing--some of his best friends, etc.,
etc.--but said that Jews were
"(dangerous" (his own word) in
business. "They are not loyal to
you," he averred. I, of course, had
my say on that point, and I do not

because it seems to me testimony
Another employer, a Jew, told

rely on those in business, but be-

That the anti-Semitic move-

mania and Greece, as exemplified
by the recent occurrences in these
countries, are due not to the ig.
norance of the masses but to de.
liberate moves by certain politi-
cal parties is becoming evident.
This is proved by the fact that
the riots in Vienna, Berlin and
Bucharest center mostly around
the universities and are led by
the "Aryan" students of those
countries. This makes the anti-
Jewish persecutions much more
serious. It would seem that the
university youth, which before the
war was the standard-bearer of
liberalism, is now permitting it-
self to be exploited by the chauvi-

My readers, I feel sure, will pardon this bit of personal history,
since it might concern many thousands of people who are past middle
age--at a time when we watch our common enemy from every possi-
ble angle of attack; life grows precious as years advance.
Possibly nine years ago, I began to get sudden, vague, alarming
symptoms--a feeling that I was about to drop and "pass out;" it was
far from pleasing, I assure you. I. had never paused to take' an inven-
tory of myself. These "spells" came suddenly, anywhere, and without
warning--the immediate symptom, a rapidly weakening heart. Being
a smoker, I at once thought of tobacco.
From one of these attacks I staggered into the office of a .neigh-
bor physician. After some examination he said, "You've got a poi-
soned heart, doctor--I don't think it is tobacco; on the other hand, I
don't see at this moment just what it is; you need a heart tonic, and
need it right away, till further investigation."
Well .. "investigation" revealed poisoning by a substance knowri
as "indican." Its cause, PUTREFACTION OF THE CONTENT OiF
THE COLON. Not decomposition, mind you; PUTREFACTION, go-
mng on inside of my digestive canal. It had been going on a long
time, creeping on, as my bodily indolence grew more chronic.
I set about to clean house, and at once. This indican, in large
amounts within the body, will, in time, weaken the entire cardiovasco-
lar system, until death may result; then the newsppaers say "victim''
of a heart attack. So many these days. Possibly hundreds of sudden
deaths caused by indican poisoning--simply because we neglect to
look up evidence in that direction!
To test for this poison is easy. Two test tubes required. In one,
put equal parts of the patient's urine, chloroform, and pure hydro-
chloric acid; add a few drops of hydrogen peroxide; shake the mix-
ture, and pour from one tube to the other a half-dozen times; if in-
dican is present, a heavy blue color will appear in the mixture, varying
with the quantity of the poison. Then, clean out and keep cleaned
out! Not once, but for a year!
"Well, you should have seen

"Before I was engaged I told
him I had a relative that was

with the true spirit of advanced
Europe, the spirit of Rognan Ro-

The plays of four Jews were
chosen by Burns Mantle, dramatic
critic, for inclusion in his annual
selection of the ten best plays of
the year. They are: "Once in a
Lfeitime," by Moss Hart and
George S. Kaufman; "Five Star
Final," by Louis Weitzenkorn,
and "Grand Hotel,"' by Vicki
We are not chauvinistic enough
to proclaim that the selection of
these four Jewish playwrights sig-
nifies that the Jews are domninr-
ting .the .dramatic field. Nor would
we find these plays less interest-
ing if they had been written by
non-Jews. If we mention at all
this special distinction which
comes to us it is to point out that
none of these plays enters the cat-
egory of sex plays or cheap box
office formulas. On the contrary,
they represent genuine literary
endeavors-especially mn the case
of "Five Star Final" and "Grand
Hotel." This should be emrpha-
sized. When the cry that Jews are
cheapening Broadway and are the
cause of the sexification of the
American drama is raised let us
remember that our Jewish play-
wrights and producers lead the
field in what must be considered
the genuine, clean drama.
If all the gangsters and racket-

looks as if the Chicago undertak-

One of my friends, who now occupies. a high position, started life
as a salesman for the National Cash Register Company.
He thought that if he could sell cash registers to Marshall Field
it would be a big feather in his cap, and the example of this leading
store would have influence with smaller merchants all over the coun-
So he called at Field's and made his talk, but received no en-
couragement. The next year he called again .. and the next .. .
and the next. The tenth year he came away with an order for $150,-
In telling me about it, he remarked: "I said to myself, that's
$15,000 worth of business for each of the ten years Not a bad a~ver-
age at all "
In 1929, when stock prices were crashing and even the richest
men were feeling poor, a New York banker met a capitalist whose
fortune, on paper, had shrunk many million dollars. He was in a blue
The banker said: "You ought to have learned better than this.
Don't you remember back in 1920 how worried you were, and how you
sent for me to reassure you ? Even at present prices you must be
worth ten times what you were then. If so, your average is mighty
good. What are you kicking about ?"
A young man and young woman were married. After the ceremony
the bride's father, a veteran business man who had fought hard for
his fortune, took them into his study. "I want to say just one thing
to you, he remarked. "You must not expect that all your years will
be good. You'll go along for a while without seeming to get ahead, but
at the end of every year you'll own a little more furniture and have
a few more dollars in the bank. Then there will come a year some time
Jvhen you'll have a stroke of luck and make a lot of progress. You
must expect to average the good with the bad."
It seems to me that much of the worry and fretting in life grow
out of the fact that people do not take a long enough look.
Every human life, at some point, has been handicapped and
doomed to disappointment. At forty ,Henry Ford had never saved
a cent. At forty-five, Lincoln was a disappointed politician. For
twenty-five years, Charles Darwin worked, day after day without the
slightest recognition. Then, for each of them, there came a few great
years that amply made up for all the rest.
The law of compensation works fpr those who keep their industry
and their faith. Those who quit under discouragement are selling out
at the bottom. For a majority of courageous lives, taking all the years
together, the average is good.

A joint meeting of the Work-

Club was held at the Workmen's
Circle hall last Sunday night when
the matter of the reopening of the
Arbeiter Ring Schule was dis-

was unanimously decided to re-
open the school the early part of
October. A graduate of the Sem-
inary of the Schule System will be
sent to Miami by the national or-
ganization of the Workmen's Cir-

of the school. The Arbeiter Ring

cause of some financial troubles
it was discontinued last year. At
the present time the organization
has sufficient funds on hand to
take care of the immediate needs.

Without the aid of ceremonials,
religious life would be deprived of
a powerful auxiliaryr. Ceremonials
are essential for indicating the
particular truths of a religious
system. Without the Sabbath, Ju-
daism would, without much hope
of success, have to seek means by
which to implant in man habits of
rest, of meditation and of self-
communion, and encourage ideals
of contentment and unselfishness.
The ceremonies referred to i'x
the Bible are "signs and memo-
r~ials." They are viv-id reminders
of ev-ents having abiding religious
significance. They chronicle the
giving of divine commandments.

/ceremonials. It would be beside
the point to deny that rabbinic
Judaism is not a ceremonial relig-
lon. Rabbinic Judaism has the
saving grace of psychological in-
sight into man's nature.
However, ceremonials in relig-
ion and religious ceremonialism do
not mean one and the same thing.
Ceremonials minister to truth,
while ceremonialism may at times
conceal truth. Notwithstanding
the strictures of Paul and the
Christian church throughout its
history, Judaism, strictly speak-
ing, suffers little from ceremon-
ialism. For so soon as ceremonials
tended to degenerate into worship
alien to the purity of the religion
of God, there would be raised up
voices powerful enough to halt the
decadence. The prophets inveighed
against every act which savored
of hypocrisy, much less idolatry.
The rabbis, for all their insistence
upon institutions, observances and
forms, were worthy successors of
the prophets. The 'prophets, by
means of language charged with
eloquence, indignation, pleading or
satire, sought to instil in the peo-
ple an undefiled religion, a relig-
