Jai Alai Games
Withqthe 1931-32 ja~i alair sea-
son off to a successful start, the
13iscayne Fronton is presenting
eight nightly games 6f the. fast;-
est sport ever' seen here.
Thbe new crew olf jai. alai play_
ers is showing up remarkably
well. The boys are better match-
ed than in any previous season.
Many of them are outstanding "ex-
perts with the cestas, or baskets,
but none can claim to be far su-
pe~rior to the others. TIhe resul(
is, keen ~competition in the old
Spanish .ball game. ~
Kiki, s;6n of Senor yslenzuela,
director mof public he~alth of Ha-
vana, is proving one of the moit
sensational stars playing here. He
is in Miami for thyfirst time.
Kiki is an energetic little athlete
and i#uts up a bpsy fight from the
first serve. -
His running mate, EsqueveY is
showing up equalljr well. Esque.
vel played the back wall position
on the championship doubled team
of liern. He 'started playing pro-
fessionazl jai alai in Lima, Peru,
his native city. '
Many of the old favorites are
back this year. Mir, former
American champion, is again a
strong contender for local honors.
Antonoid, one of the most popular
veterans, declares that he will fi-
nish thle deason local champion,
but- his brother Alvared, with
Escarza, Michelena, Charley, Fecl-
erico and other veteran cesta ex-
perts are equallyr determined to
win. ~Alvarez ~is practicing every
morning -to perfect his playing
and repeat his performance of
two years ago, when he won the
fronton singles crown and defeat-
ed Guillermo, then world's champ-
Nearly 4500 people witnessed the I
exciting contests on the opening

LECTURE IS POSTPONED
The lecture of WTinston Church-
ill scheduled for January 10, 1932,
under the joint auspices of the
Miami Woman's City Club and
Temple Israel of Miami, Florida,
has been postponed until Sunday,
February 21, 1932, on account of
the injuries received by Mr.
:Churchill in an automobile acci-
dent in New York. Mr. Churchill
was not seriously hurt, but had
to defer his southern tour.
The lecture of Dr. Lewis Brown
will be held as scheduled on the
night of January 10, 1982.
From the vepnt of a
New York tour~i~st~~ an out-
sider I think there is an im.
portant element lacking in the
Jewish Life of this great city.
That is a tie that ,would bind
the Jewish young folks *into a
common cause, regardless of
whether their parents are par-
tial to a large or a small yar-
mulk~a or to none at all. After
all it is the young people who
usill shortly have to decide the
big Jewish problems arisiihg,
andl perhaps they ;will do so
with a spirit of American toler-
ance, that some of the older
folks may be lacking today.
My thought is that the time
is ripe ~to start a movement
here to bring together the
Jewish boys and girls in the
town by organizing a Young ,
Israel club whose purpose it
will be to encourage sociability,
athletics, culture 'and religion in
a decent Jewish spirit,
I think, Mr. Editors no s-
bler cause can be found thanr to
start a movement of this Idn?
to enlist the new generation
under one comanebn banner to
carry on and fAor Jewish
ideals and Jewish traditions.
With the opening of Tropical
Park Saturday, Miami's racing
season for the finest of thorough-
breds will begin in one of the
most beautiful' I~lants in the coun-
try, with a track equal to any in
Ground was broken on October
22. More than 900 men were put
to~ work and the work is already
in shape for some of the fastest
racing possible. Of the many in-
novations introduced by Frank J.
Bruen the moving spirit in the
work is the paddock which is
sheltered, airy and convenient for
the public, though only two hun-
dred feet from the grandstand. A
feature is the result board in red,

dreds of horses that have already

Another innovation is the eree-
tion of sweeping turns which will
eliminate the customary pulling
up. They are banked 3 1-2 feet

old fashioned custom of having
always to take the horses to the
trapk for work, out.
The culubhouse'is the last word
in' modern construction. It con-
tains three dining rooms, two of
which are built in the open. There
is a patio *downstairs, and a
lounge r~oofi. ' lIstead of steps
leading to the clubhouse, Bruen
has substituted ramps which is
another of many conveniences.
Originally Tropical Park was a
greyhound track. The property on
which the race course and sur-
rounding territory measures 226

from the center of Miami proper
to reach the course. There are
20 different routes to get there.
Fifteen thousand machines can be
parked outside the track.

ish Floridianl to Jcewish friends

al Noember, 1930, the ten lead-

One of them said it would be
over in six months.
Four said it would last from
one to three years.
The other five said it would last
from three to five years.

is pretty gloomy, isn't it?"

Looking back over history, we
can see that prophecy has always
been a dangerous business. But
as between the optimistic prophets
and the pessimistic the balance is
in fervor of the optimists.
Old Mother Shipton, in the early
1500's, prophesied that "iron upon
the sea would float as easily as a
wooden boat." She foretold the
air-plane, the submarine, and the
telephone. She was suspected
then of being crazy, but she does
not look so crazy now.
John Law, of Missippi Bubble

not one, but many; and it runs
,true to the numerous diversities
of race, nationally, and religion
among the scant million inhabi-

strongly marked in itself. There
is the unveiled Arab peasant in
Iher long, dar~k gowfn with native
embroidery, bearing on her head
a great flat basket with beauti-
fully arranged vegetables grown
by herself ; the strictly veiled,
black-silk-enveloped Mloslem lady
of the effendi class; the false y
chic Christian Arab stenographer
or clerk; the black or grey-robed
nun of half a dozen national iies
-the teaching or nursing sister;
the nondescript but unmistakable
nussionary intent on salvation
through good works; the aloof,
tailored Englishwoman of Govern-
inent circles, doing her bit of so-
cial welfare work among the Arab
poor.; the sturdy German farmer-
woman. Then comes the wide var-
iety of Jewish types: the dark,
petite Yemenite maid-servant; the
meekly resigned Sephardi wife;
the pious, competent Ashkenazic
storekeeper of the Old Ytishuv:
the middle-class European or
American housewife with a sensi-
tiv-e social conscience; the numer-
ous professional women, kinder-
gartners, teachers, office work-
ers, physicians, nurses, dentists,
social workers, journalists with
a hard-bitten sense of duty and a
vaguely official air; the sun-burlt

dresses and barefoot sandals.

themselves so plainly that none
can mistake the voice of the peo-

CAUGHT IN HIS OWN TRAP
A merchant, on his way to a
distant city, carried with him a
bag containing five hundred gold
pieces. He thought to himself, "If
I take this money with me, I may
meet with a thief who will steal
it. I will hide the gold until I
need it '
He found a secret place where
he buried the bag of gold in the
earth. Though the .merchant be.
lievedhimself unobserved, there
was one who watched him through
a hole in the wall near which he
buried his treasure.
When the merchant had gone,
the other came from his hiding
place, dug up the gold and made
away with it.
A few days later, the merchant
returned to secure the gold, which
he needed in order to transact his
business. When he saw that it
had been stolen, he was sorely
"What shall I do ?" he thought.
"No one was in sight when I hid
my gold. What can have become
of it?" Looking about, he obsery-
.ed the hole in the wall, and it oc-
curred to him that the owner of
the house beyond it might have
seen hiim in the act of burying the
gold and stolen it.
He inquired of the villagers who
was the owner of the house, and
when the information had been
given to him, he approached the
man saying, "I have heard it said
that you are noted for your wis-
don and counsel. I pray you give
me your advice. I came hither
upon a matter of business, bring-
ing with me two bags of gold, one
containing five hundred pieces, the
other eight hundred. Since I knew
no one in this town to whom I
could entrust the money, I secret-
ly hid the bag with the five hun-
ieldigold pie es, but the other is
