NAMES .. nation-wide study
What is the commonest name
Right--it's Smith. But in Brook-
lyn, N. Y., and the Borough of
the Bronx there are more Cohiens
than Smiths, and in The Bronx,
almost entirely populated by
Jews, there are also more people
named Schwartz and Miller.
A study qf the telephone books
and city directories of the whole
nation has just been made, and
shows that the names which ap-
pear oftenest are, in order of their
frequency, Smith, Johnson, Brown,
Williams, Jones, Miller, Davis,
Anderson, Wilson and Moore.
Smith is a universal name. It
means the worker in metals and
it is the same whether Johnson
is usually Seandinavian in this
country, but it is also English and
Scotch. The Browns may have
started out as Brauns or Le Brun,
but the more likely to be of Eng-
lish descent. Williams and Jones
are straight Welsh, as are the
The Millers are another inter-
national family, Mueller and Mou-
lineaux being other spellings. The
Andersons and Wilsons are Scotch
of course, and who ever heard of a
person named Moore who didn't

The Test at Hand
Wherever one w alk ese
days in the Greater Miami dis-
trict among the Jewish citizens,
be they young or old, the topic
of discussion is: Will the Jews
ever get together for the com-
mon good of all? Will they ever
submerge their own selfish de-
sires so that the greatest good
may be accomplished for the
The cause for all this discus-
sion is the recent meeting held
at the old Library building un-
der the joint auspices of the
B'nai Brith and the Young Men's
Club. An attendance that sur"
prised everyone and particularly
the officers of both organizations
greeted the first call to the Mi-
ami Jews. However, as is usual
cit such meetings, the orators
came to the fore. They orated
at length and as a result little
was done. Some of the men at-
tending realizing the necessitV
for saving the situation wisely
moved- the appointment of a
joint committee to submit plans.
This was done.

be determined once and for all.
To .the leaders of both organiz-

meeting has been called, we re-

that both of you have done some
good work, and that this fact
should be recognized. It would
have been a very splendid thing

common good, not merely to make

The Way of Life
Sman whose son gaduated
from college in June was asking
what I thought about a post gra-
duate course in the Harvard Bus.
"I don't assume any school can
teach a boy how to succeed," he
said. "What I want is to have
my son learn something about
the history of business."
He proceeded to illustrate from
his own experience. Until 1904
he was a newspaper reporter, but
that year he took a job with the
manufacturing concern of which
he is now the head.
In 1907, when he was just be-
ginning to get under way, along
came a pamc.
"We cleared away the wreckage
and started again," he said, "but
in 1910 there was a strike which
tied up our plants, destroyed part
of our property and disrupted our
"Suddenly the war, and the
slump was transformed into a
boom! But don't imagine the
boom was any picnic. To be sure,
the orders rolled in from every
side, but prices of raw material
sky-rocketed, our capital was
limited, and I wore out my shoes
and got grey headed borrowing
money from one bank to pay back
"Then the war ended, and w% ~
took an awful beating in our in-
ventory. Then the 1920-22 de-
pression. Then another boom.
"And now this.
"It would be advantageous to
my boy, I believe, if he were fam-
iliar with this sequence of events,
if he knew the ups and downs not
only ofi modern business but Of
business through the ages. May-
be he would come into life with-
out the illusion which has handi-
capped so many of us--that there
is any such thing as 'normal' in
the sense of permanently settled
conditions and uninterrupted pro-
I thought these were very wise
As far back as I cani remember
I have been hoping and planning
for a time when I should be "com-
fortably fixed." At first I thought
Sif I could ever accumulate $20,-
1000 in good safe bonds I'd have
an income of $1,000 a year and
then I could look out with philo-
sophic calm! upon the foibles of
The only progress I have made
during the past three years has
been in health. I try to ride horse-
back more, swim more, play more
golf, and keep generally tough
and supple. I'm quite sure that
as long as I live I shall have to
keep hustling--that just about
the timle I get everything nicely
/fixed something will happen.
STAIMPS .. and their value
Many readers have written me
to ask the value of old stamps in
their possession since I wrdte
something about the prices some
rare stamps bring. I am not an
authority on stamps, but experts
tell me that the value of any giv-
en stamp is what it will bring at
auction, where stamp prices are
Most stamp dealers are honest,
but one man who sent a very rare
stamp to a dealer found himself '
victimized. The dealer paid him
$165 for the stamp, then sold it
for $7,500. The original owner
sued the dealer and the courts
have ordered him to pay the diff~er-
The best way to find out whbeth,
or an old stamp has value is to
send a photograph of it to the

I've lost you, I've lost you,
And I am distraught;
Alike comfort and sympathy
Now avail me naught.
Come back to nie, please,
I won't mind if you're wild;
I'll no more be cross with you,
My buddy, my child.
I miss your morning kiss,
Your warm body at night
As you'd curl up against me
With a sigh of delight.
I took you for granted,
Did nothing to hold you,
And now that you're gone
I long to enfold you.
Just name your own pleasure,
I'll do anything you say-
I'll walk with you at midnight
And play with you all day.
I'll perform miracles for you,
I'll even like the fog,
If you'll only come back to me,
Do you wonder today what
The postman will bring

In Chicago the Jewish People's
Institute takes over a portion of
the burden of public education.
Chicago, its treasury depleted, has
no summer schools this year. In
summer schools children make up
subjects in which they were de-
ficient and thus are enabled to
pass, and other children speed the
process of graduation by taking
extra courses in these schools.
Says the Jewish People's Insti-
tute in effect: "When public fune-

own. The burden that falls from
the shoulders of government be-
comes ours. Our children shall
not run idle on the streets this
So the Jewish People's Institute
has ~opened a summer school for
Jewish children to provide for
them all the courses that the pub-
lic schools would have given them.
The Jew continues to be con-
scious of his responsibilities even

might guess from hearing him
talk, he began his career 37 years j
ago in London. His father was
minister of correspondence to the
English, Hungarian and Italian
embassies, and his mother prin-
cipal of the Royal university for
girls in Vienna. He mentions lit-
tle of his early training, but the
fact that he now speaks five lang-
uages shows that his years at
school were well spent.

station WJZ, New York. During
the following five years, he made
strides toward success, managing
station s, directing and anno uncing
programs, and always creating
new ones. Perhaps the most out-
stanrding of these is the "Music
Appreciation Hour," familiar to
Miami fans. He .originated the
program and worked with it two
years, then passed it to Walter
