Gubernational nomination in the

cording to the returns from prae-
tically the entire state, as we go

Mr. Sholtz, a prominent attor-
ney and business man of the state
made his campaign on the aboli-
tion of the professional politician
from control of State affairs, a
reduction in taxes, free school
books in all grades and a clean
business administration and aboli-
tion of useless departments.
Mr. Sholtz has had a long civic
career as president of State, City
and East Coast Chambers of Com-
merce, as State head of the Elks
and in child welfare work.
In Miami a large number of his
Jewish friends are organizing to
effectively aid him in his cam-

many years. They also point to

paid by the Government to

With the final picture of a com-

they put mnto this project.

NOT to get one. It is a letter
received by the managing editor
of a middle western newspaper.
It reads:
"Dear Sir:
"Your refusal of the opportunity
to hire probably the liveliest re-
porter, ablest high school editor,
and the best writer that ever ap-
plied to you for a position is a
very astonishing mistake.
"I have offered you a chance to
raise your journalistic standard
to the utmost height possible, but
you turn me down flat with a
mere two short lines refusal.
"Do you realize that you have
turned down a member of the in-
ternationally famous Quill and

Scroll Society ? You may sneer
at this organization, but if you
do, it will be because it is a case
of sour grapes with you.
"However, you need not feel
alone in your most inexplainable
act. Two other managing Editors
have also refused me a position.
Two others were not even court-
eous enough to answer my letter
of application.

"The preface indicates the im

priest, Hutterus, used the phrase
'Praise ye the Lord all ye people

Hebrew and then translated it in
to thirty-one different language
to prove his versatility and hi
qualifications for undertaking suc;
a task."
Throughout the pages of th
Bible the priest indicated the roo
of every word by using hollow
or outlined letters. This alone
declared Rabbi Weisfeld, was t
tremendous task, because thr
books of the Bible were written
at different periods and the roots
of words changed between those
times. Interpretations of words
were undetermined and the priest
must have been daring as well as
thorough to undertake decisions
on words.
Rabbi Weisfeld knows of three
earlier editions of the Bible, the
Mayence, the one at Worms, the
birth-place of Rashi, commentator
of the early middle ages, and the
Salonica edition, but these gave
simply the text of the Bible ~with-
out notes or comments and were
not hollow lettered.
There were two editions of this
Bible published in the year 1587,

;he earlier one. It is now at the
North Shore Congregation for in-

He told me two stories. The
first was about a man who ac-
cumulated a large fortune, built
a house on Fifth Avenue, put his
feet on the window-sill, and said:
"Now, I am going to enjoy my-
self." But he was like a watch
spring which has been wound up
tight for a long time, and, bemng
suddenly released, snaps mn pieces.
After only a few months of ill-
ness he died.
The second story had been told
to Barron by a noted surgeon. A
woman, taken to the hospital for
a slight operation, died almost
before the anesthetic was applied.
The surgeon could not understand
it. On looking into her history,
he discovered that from the min-
ute the operation was decided up-
on she had begun to prepare for
the worst. She had made her will
given away her jewels, and di-
vided her personal property.
The surgeon said: "That taught
me a lesson. I shall never again
operate until I find out what pre-
parations the patient has made.

Just a brief thought occu
when the second of the three Je~
ish festivals in Jewish life one
again rolls around. The Feast (
Weeks coming after an abstinencec
following the Holiday of Liber
tion, is best remembered, how
ever, for the "Zman Matan Tol
asaynu" the giving t& the Jewis
people of the book of books, th
Bible. And the thought that can!
not help but occur to the thinking:
Jew, is: Why amongst all the na
tions and people of the earth mus
the Jew alone be ashamed of th
greatest heritage ever bequeathed
to man ? Why is it that in the
schools it is inevitably the Jewisl
child that knows least about tht
Bible. And one cannot help bul
think of the beautiful lines writ
ten by the late Morris Rosenfeld
the renowned Yiddish poet, which
we delight here to quote:

Is it a book, a world, a Heaven,
Are those words, or flames or shin-
ing stars.
Or burning torches or clouds of
What is it, I ask ye--the Bible?

Who inspired these infinite truths?
Who spoke through the mouth of
the prophet?
Who mapped out the highway of
The glorious lines of the Scrip.
tures t

Who planted the flowers of wisdom
In this sacred soil of the angels ?
O Dream of Eternity--Bible-
O Light that is all and forever.

We just wonder whether on the
occasion of Shvuoth there cannot
again be revived in the heart of
the Jewish boy and girl, the Jew-
ish man and woman, that love for
the Torah which was handed down
to us on Sinai on that memorable
occasion, which love has carried
the Jew unfalteringly through
the ages despite persecution and

just as the flowers and ferns are
an everlasting reminder of the
beauties of nature and the glory
of God.

Rabbi was officially greeted by the

Our brilliant Jewish scholar was
born in Lemberg, Austria, and stu-

He was elected Rabbi to the Jew-

1913 was appointed head of the
Spanish-Portuguese congregations
of Bucharest. His indefatigable
devotion to the3 Jews of Roumania
was fully recognized, and in 1921
he was unamimotsly elected Chief

life-long Jewish representative in
the Senate; for, by Roumanian

ing After the exile a tendency com-
was m~enced, which later became mark-

med disregard of their meaning and
han( appropriateness. The adoption of
oft-' names of Jewish heroes of the
leo- past and such new names as "Tik-
are vah") (hope), "'Nechanah" (conso-
ent la8tion) and "Smichath-Hagiulah" '
and (joY of redemption) reveal nation-
ma- alist yearnings. Assimilationist
ave tendencies, however, developed,
ere and non-Jewish names became
more and more frequent. Aramaic,
ft- Babylonian, Persian, and later
the Greek and Roman names were
x). widely adopted.
of Even the names of gods were
th, appropriated. "Mordecai" was de-
lyrived from the Babylonian god

bazzar." In the Greek period
a)there is an Appolos, "a certain
ys- Jew an eloquent man and
e-mighty in the scriptures" (Acts
xviii, 24). Greek names like
LU- "Zeno "Appollonius," "Philo"
leoften occur, and amongst women
ed"Alexandra" and "Priscilla."
n,, The high priest Simon, accord-
r-ing to legend, promised Alexan-
b,, der the Great that all children
a-born in priestly families follow-
k- ing the year of his visit to Jer-
),usalem should be named Alexan-
chder after him. Hebrew names
orwere sometimes translated into

s It is during this period that the
is custom arose of naming a son aft-

n parently adopted to aid the pres-

names remained, and some of

Amongst the Jews of England the

"Bonfil," "Bonenfound," "Aniot,"
"Piers" may be mentioned. Only
a few of the women's names were
Biblical, such as "Miriam," "Anna"
"Arigay" (Abigail). High-sound-
ing French names, -like "Fleur-
delis," "Comitissa," "Mirabella,"
"Pulcilla," and "Preeieuse,"' were
preferred. Converts assumed Eng-
lish names, and they seem to be
the only English names used.
The glory of Israel has depart-
ed. The names of Jeiwish heroes
are passed over for praenomens
which are not Jewish. Names are
no longer given for their inherent
significance, but because of their
buphony. Meaning and suitabili-
'ty are ignored. Rachel glories at
her metamorphosis into Rosalmne
(famed serpent). The fond moth-
,er calls her offspring 'Cecil
(blind) or "Claude" (lame). Iron-
ically enough, certain names which
are not of Jewish origin became
so popular with Jewish parents
that they are considered distinctly
Jewish. Most curious is the name
"Isidore," thought to be as Jew-
ish as Isane, but probably means
"gift of Isis," and is a name made
famous by being borne by three
Spanish bishops who were bitter
enemies of Jewry!
