Light Experts
To Lecture Here
A staff of nationally known spe-
cialists in the science of illumina-
tion will lecture at the four-day
training course at the Columbus
hotel. Sept. 26 to 28, for Florida
Power & Light Co. engineers and
service worker.-, as well as other
local inters
The lecturers, all of whom are
associated with the incand<
lamp department of General Elec-
tric Co., are coming from the com-
pany's N'ela Park laboratorii
Cleveland, Ohio. Their talks will
cover numerous phases of the lighl-
ing art and its applications to the
commercial, industrial, residential
and various other fields.
The course is designed to bring
to this community the benefits of
tin latest findings of illumination
science and aid in the effective util-1
ization of light for seeing and hu-
man welfare. It is expected to be
attended by 150 students.
The lecture group includes J. M.
Ketch, specialist in commercial
lighting; -Miss Harriett Hickok,
home lighting specialist; K. E.
Harrington, lighting Bales repre-
sentative, and W. G. Darley, in-
dustrial lighting engineer.
Recent findings developed in the
course of more than 20 years' con-
tinuous research in the General
Electric laboratories, reveal that
the widespread prevalence of eye
defects is due in large measure tO
the general practice of reading and
working under inadequate inten-
sities of illumination.
With all of civilization's ad-,
trance during the last half century,
this science points out, little has;
been known about light and its,
greatest use that of helping eyes
to develop strongly and naturally;
Of helping eyes t see clearly and
with the minimum of effort.
Primitive man used his eyes al-
most entirely out-of-doors under
very high intensities of daylight
- intensities hundreds of times
.., than we find Indoors to-
day. When the sun went down Ins
tasks were ended for the day. And
he used Ins eyes for distant, not
dose seeinghunting, fishing and
. m0st simple of seeing tasks.
Even in Abraham Lincoln's time
ery few people studied or sewed
far into the night.
Modern civilization, the science
of .seeing reveals, has completely-
changed all of this. Lightly tossed
aside is the fact that our eyes were
in the process of development for
hundreds of thousands of years-,
and developing for distance seeing |
under tremendous quantities of nat-
ural daylight. In the last few sec-
0ds on the dock of time liber-
ties have been taken with all four (
of nature's principles-distance,
Meing, lots of light to aid our eyes,
a relatively short day, and easy
visual tasks.

The Modern City
(Continued from New Year's
Edition)
How the small garden suburb de-
veloped into a town, what diffi-
culties it faced under the Turks
during the World War, how the
various "aliyahs" increased its
population manifold has been re-
counted on numerous occasions be-
fore. What is most significant is
that Tel Aviv, which got its name
Of "Hill of Spring" only fifteen
yean ago, has assumed a promi-
nent role in the present influx of
German .lews as the training sta-
tion for new arrivals. Tel Aviv
has become a melting pot in which
the immigrant can cast off the
alien and clashing elements of his
former environment. Tel Aviv
has become a rich inspiration to
the newcomer, instilling in him
the idealism and faith required for
the pioneer, by placing before him
the realization of a vision which
he can carry with him to other
parts of Palestine.
In appearance the city of Tel
Aviv today has all the character-
istics of a modern city. Its wide
boulevards lined with trees and
home, of the advanced, cubistic de-
sign recall the outlines of an
American city. But within the
buildings that wear the placidity
and calm of ordinary dwellings and
public buildings there is taking
place one of the most interesting
metamorphoses of modern times.
For the -lews have come to Pales-
tine not to rebuild it in the sense
of re-establishing it in accordance
with its ancient life, but to estab-
lish it us a modern state with a
social and economic order immun-
ized to the frailties and shortcom-
ings of the present crisis in Europe
and in the United States. The city
of Tel Aviv is a progressive, dem-
ocratic municipality. Its town
council, comprised of a substantial
of representatives of the
working element, is a governing
body dedicated to advanced prin-
ciples of municipal administration.
Its educational system devoted to
the establishment of Hebrew as
the native tongue and the renais-
sance of Hebrew culture in general
has been constructed on the most
scientific pedagogical pattern. Tel
Aviv boasts theatres and libraries
rich in .1. wish lore and Jewish tra-
dition. Not an insignificant phase
Of the cultural activities of the city
are under the direct control and
direction of the workers' clubs and
societies, which have reached an
onequaled degree of social and cul-
tural excellence. Jewish festivals
and holidays are observed in Tel
Aviv on a scale reminiscent of the
glory of ancient Israel. In brief,
Tel Aviv is the fountainhead of
Jewish culture in Palestine.
Tel Aviv is a rare phenomenon
in urban development. Its growth
has been so startlingly rapid that
it has actually doubled its popu-
lation in the last three years. The
story of how Mayor Dizengoff re-
plies to queries about the city's
population contains more than a
modicum of truth. Invariably, tha
mayor is said to give the follow-
ing answer: "Today it is 85,000.

American Reform
Church Planned
Los Angeles "The Reform
Church of American Israelites,"
which will observe Sunday as the
Jewish day of rest and worship,
is now in the process of organiza-
tion under the leadership of Rabbi
H. Cerf Straus, who has just re-
signed from Congregation Beth
Israel of San Diego and come to
Los Angeles to devote himself to
the organization of this new type
of synagogue.
Rabbi Straus declared that the
term "synagogue" will be entirely
discarded because it is desired to
divest the organization of all in-
correct and secular implications
contained in the words "Syna-
gogue" and "Temple." "The word
'Synagogue' is rejected because it
is a Greek word for the Hebrew
'Keneseth' or 'Assembly'," Rabbi
Straus explained. "An assembly
or gathering may be for cultural,
economic or political purposes. The
word 'Temple,' of Latin origin, has
a pagan connotation which is mis-
leading. But the word 'Church' has
an unequivocal meaninga build-
ing or organization devoted exclu-
sively to religious ends. The fact
that it has been used by Chris-
tians as descriptive of their reli-
gious organizations does not rob
it of its significance. What we
want to emphasize is that we are
come together for religion and for
religion only."
The elimination of the word
"Jew" and "Judaism" and the sub-
stitution of the word "Israelite,"
Rabbi Straus explained by saying
that "It is high time to discard
a word which has been burdened
by misunderstanding and which
corroborates the myth of racial
origins." He further explained
that "As there is an Aryan myth
now made the vehicle for hatred
and brutality, so there is a Se-
mitic myth. Hypothetical biolog-
ical origins may be of interest to
speculative anthropologists, but as
practical religionists we are con-
cerned only with spiritual origins.
We stem spiritually from the
Prophets of Israel, and all who
join with us in belief or deed are
our co-religionists."
Rabbi Straus said that while ob-
serving Sunday as the Jewish day
of rest and worship instead of the
traditional Sabbath "our loyalty
and devotion to Israel remain un-
impaired." American Israelites
plan to share in every effort to-
wards realization of the higher
I aims of their Faith, he declared.
Jewish News
Around the
World
Nationalist Jews Protest Message
of Regret to llindenburg's Kin
Berlin.Nationalist Jews here
are wrought up over the telegram
of regret sent to the family of the
late President Paul von Hinden-
burg by the Representative Body
lot German Citizens of Jewish
Faith. The telegram, sent by
Rabbis Baeck and Hirsch, on be-
half of all German Jews, affirmed
Jewry's abiding loyalty to the
memory of Hindenburg as a man
"who always saw the fathereland
as including all." Critics of the
message maintain that it was un-
justified because Hindenburg was
not a friend of the Jews.
The Juedische Runschau, organ
of the German Zionists, does not
Bhare the opinion of those who
criticized the message. The Rund-
schau printed Hindenburg's name
in a black border, published the
text of the message sent by the
Jews to his family and carried an
editorial which said: "Participa-
tion in all political life and public
affairs is denied to us Jews in
present-day 'Germany, but at a
tmt when the whole German peo-
ple mourns at llindenburg's biet
we deem it our duty to say we
German Jews share the same feel-
ing."
In this connection it is recalled
that four years ago Hindenburg
was taunted by the Nazis for his
friendship "with Jewish and Marx-
ist advisers." Propaganda Minis-
ter Goebbels was fined 800 marks
several years ago for libelling Hin-
denburg.
Nazis Ban Technical Courses for
Adult Jews
RADIO
SYNAGOG
BerlinAll of the technical
courses for adults established last
year by the Berlin Jewish commu-
nity for those Jews who were oust-
ed from the professions and the
civil service have been closed by
the Nazi secret police. The rea-
son given for the sudden action is
the fear that if too many Jews
learn trades they become compet-
itors of German workmen. .Mean-
while the Nazi press has started
a drive to get Aryans employed by
Jews to give up their jobs. At the
same time the ecclesiastical min-
istry of the Reich Protestant
Church (Nazi Christians) has cre-
ated a special office authorized to
investigate the Aryan origin of all
; clergymen as a means of enforc-
ing Reichbishop Mueller's order to
expel all ministers with Jewish
blood or Jewish wives.
Rabbi S. M. Machtei, founder
and director of the Radio Synagog,
will preach over station WIOD at
nine o'clock on Sunday morning on
"The Succaha Panacea." In ad-
dition to the sermon, which will be
devoted to Succoth, the Feast of
Tabernacles, there will be prayers,
music, scripture reading and a
question box.
Arab Kxecutive lo Open London
Bureau
LondonThe Arab Executive of
Palestine is planning to establish
a permanent bureau in London
which will serve as a center for
anti-Zionist agitation in England
and a point of contact between
Arab leaders and pro-Arab mem-
bers of Parliament.

A Pressing
Problem
That the problem of the Ger-
man Jewish refugees is still far
from being solved is brought out
by the appeals of Dr. Cyrus Adler,
president of the American Jewish
Committee, and James Q, McDon-
ald, League of Nations High Com-
missioner for German Refugees.
In. Adler tells American Jewry
that the tragedy of the refugees
of catastrophic proportions,
implying that generous support of
the I nited Jewish Appeal is re-
quired if the condition of the ex-
iles is to be ameliorated to any sp-
ile extent. Commissioner
McDonald, in u statement from
'" points out that 40,000 ref-
till are homeless, and, while
lauding the financial backing given
t" the relief work by Jewry, takes
to task the Christian world for not
iik' its proper share of the
burden.
ler Dr. Adler nor Mr. Mc-
Donald is accustomed to speak in
I fashion. When these two
men call the situation crit-
may, therefore, be sure
thai it is so. It is up to us Jews
our utmost, to give to the
liny, that these tens of thou-
of refugees may be saved.
And from Mr. McDonald's state-
ment We gather that he is plan-
o mobilize the liberal Chris-
tian forces of the world to aid the
thousands exiled by the
Nazi terror.
Back to the Land
H'gh Commissioner Wauchope
of Palestine and the Jewish author-
'" of the Homeland are much
rned these days about the
housing shortage in Tel Aviv. To
Us it seems that the chief point
""ought out by this shortage is

QUESTIONS

Q. The impression seems to be
widespread that Catholics as a rule
are "wet." What is the actual
attitude of the Catholic Church on
the liquor question?
\. Tin- Catholic Church has
never taken any stand on the ques-
tion of prohibition, though many
Catholics were opposed to it, prin-
cipally on the grounds that such
an amendment had no place in the
Constitution and they Instinctively

ments of the federal government.
On the "liquor question" the church

through its societies, notably the
Catholic Total Abstinence Union,
has advocated total abstinence for
all who ought or may wish to adopt
that practice, and many bishops

"Vicarious Atonement"
Scripture Reading, Leviticus, Chapter XVI, Verses 29-81, Inclusive
I rom sundown on Tuesday the sounding of the Shofar at ran-
s .j on Wednesday announcing the close of the fast Jews will ob-
servt Yom Kippur, the Hay of Atonement, in accordance with Scrip-
tuial and Rabbinic laws. There will be fasting and praying, chanting
and crying, wailing and repenting. At the conclusion of the trying
ordeul, the devout Jew will feel certain that God has accepted the
prayer* of His votaries, has pardoned them all their sins, and has
granted them a new lease on life. This devout Jew will go out of the
rjue. prepared to make u sincere effort to lead a better, a
life during the next twelve months or, in the Jewish year to
follow, the next thirteen months since 5696 is a leap year.

surprising to find that Tel
Aviv is a pioneer industrial cen-
ter where numerous industries
have i" en introduced for the first
time into Palestine. In addition to
the factories producing building
ils, there are today in the
100 per cent Jewish city a large
number of industrial establish-
ment engaged in the production
of furniture, textiles and knitted
food, shoes, cigarettes,
orantre cases, candies, etc. In com-
merce, too, Tel Aviv has made

sup i -.iled the city of Jaffa as a

banks, among the largest in Pal-

merce and industry.

GenevaJames Q. McDonald,
League of Nations High Commis-
sioner for German Refugees, will
remove the office of the Refugee
Commission from Lausanne to Lon-
don within the next few weeks. Si-
multaneously Mr. McDonald made
it known that despite the fact that
$5,000,000 has already been raised
for the relief of the refugees, 10.-
000 of them are still homeless.
Some 25,000 of them have been per-
manently settled in new homes,
mostly in Palestine. In calling at-
tention to the precarious plight of
the 40,000 still wandering over the
capitals of Europe, Mr. McDonald
criticized the Christian world for
its failure to do anything in be-
half of the exiles.
Q. What is the Jewish attitude
toward proselytizing?
A. Rabbi Harry I.evi of Bos-
ton answers this question as fol-
lows: We Jews agree that the
right and duty to preach what is
held to be religious truth is not
to be denied to any religion, and
is indeed an essential of any vital

COURAGE. Some people make
no enemies because they lack cour-
age. Others make them because
they are not willing to be cow-
ards. To be without enemies is
to be negligible or dead.
It is a great joy to have the
courage of conviction. You may
be unpopular unless, like Teddy
Roosevelt, you have a great
amount of self-loyalty, in which
case you compel admiration, but
you have the deep satisfaction of
reflecting the superb smile of Him
of whom we are told that, He sits
in heaven and laughs.Dr. Alex-
ander Lyons.

The screen's greatest star in the

Such has been the critical ac-
claim of John Barrymore's out-
standing performance in Colum-
bia's screen version of Broadway's
great comedy smash, "20th Cen-
tury," which opens Sunday and
Monday at ihc Tivoli Theatre.
Carole Lombard, who enacts the
leading feminine role opposite the
great Barrymore, comes in for her
coast of their island a palatial
yacht is shipwrecked. Its owner,
a beautiful heiress, and a company
of friends are cast ashore. With
them is one of the yacht's crew,
who proceeds to become master of
the company.
Though Hie heiress is besieged
with suitors among her guests, she
and the sailor fall in loveaided
by the tropical moonlight.

thespian. Of Miss Lombard,
Barrymore -ays, "She's probably
the greatest actress I've ever
worked with."

Urges Capital and Labor to Employ
Religious Leaders as Mediators
New York Labor and capital
must be ready to welcome the me-
diation of religious leaders in in-
dustrial disputes, Rabbi Louis I.
Newman of Congregation Rodeph
Sholem declared today in com-
menting upon the labor situation
throughout the country.
"Several religious leaders in the
past few years have performed yeo-
man service as arbitrators in in-
dustrial disput* -." Rabbi Newman
said. "The government or unoffi-
cial lay bodies or mediators should
be able to reconcile warring lac-
lions, but the church and syna-
gogue leaders, who stand above the
battle, and who have no stake in it
except to see that justice is done,
can be a vital force in the achieve-
ment of industrial peace. But
iiiiiiHiiiiiniH.....im........iniiniiiiii
church leaders are more concerned
with the prevention of industrial
outbreaks than with their settle-
ment after the issue has been
joined. If capital and labor
spokesmen really wish economic
peace, it can be had for the ask-
ing."
Rabbi Newman warned that
America must not become "an out-
post of the battle between the
classes." "We recognize no fixed
,a>te in our system of social and
economic life," he said. "We are
not interested In the dictatorship
of either the capitalist-industrial-
ist group or of the proletariat. It
would be a sorry day for America
it' one economic class gained con-
trol of the government and con-
ducted its affairs for its own par-
ticular profit."

Protestants, Catholics und Jews
will participate will be held in
many communities throughout the

It is expected that at these

tant subjects to be discussed will
be the integrating of economic

of national recovery in terms of
character building on the basis of
a more adequate economic secur-
ity for all and methods through

questions which are expected to
come up for discussion.

DenverAn extensive program
for closer understanding between

will be launched by the Denver
Good-Will Committee as a result
of the recent conference between
Harvey Potthoff, secretary of the
committee, and Everetl P. Clinchy,

ing the conference many social and

is believed, may be brought about
by the harmonious co-operation of
all religions, were outlined.
The Denver Youth Open Forum,

SUBSCRIPTION •III M..ekj Jm Taar \ i.l. 7—No. 38 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1934 A Pressing Problem That the problem of the German Jewish refugees is still far from being solved is brought out by the appeals of Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of the American Jewish Committee, and James Q, McDonald, League of Nations High Commissioner for German Refugees. In. Adler tells American Jewry that the tragedy of the refugees of catastrophic proportions, implying that generous support of the I nited Jewish Appeal is required if the condition of the exiles is to be ameliorated to any spile extent. Commissioner McDonald, in u statement from '" points out that 40,000 reftill are homeless, and, while lauding the financial backing given t" the relief work by Jewry, takes to task the Christian world for not iik' its proper share of the burden. ler Dr. Adler nor Mr. McDonald is accustomed to speak in I fashion. When these two men call the situation critmay, therefore, be sure thai it is so. It is up to us Jews our utmost, to give to the liny, that these tens of thouof refugees may be saved. And from Mr. McDonald's statement W e gather that he is plano mobilize the liberal Christian forces of the world to aid the thousands exiled by the Nazi terror. Back to the Land H'gh Commissioner Wauchope of Palestine and the Jewish author'" of the Homeland are much rned these days about the housing shortage in Tel Aviv.

West Palm Beach Notes Crowded to capacity, worshipers at Beth El Synagogue during the Yom Kippur services listened to sermons by Dr. Issor W. Muskat, who -poke on "The Slei p Walker.-" and on "Are We Immoral?" The Rabbi also .-poke ill Yiddish prior to the Xeilah service. Succos services will begin promptly Sunday evening, September 2.'!. with a sermon by the Rabbi. He will also speak during the morning services next Monday and Tuesday. Mr. and .Mrs. Philip Blicher and daughter arrived home after a long absence in the North. Tampa Notes Succoth will lx' ushered in Sunday night, September 23, at ,'8 o'clock at Congregation Rodoph Sholom with a sermon by Rabbi A. S. Burger, who will preach on "The Significance of the Succah." Monday and Tuesday mornings the services begin at H o'clock. Sundaj night, immediately after the services, the Sisterhood of the congregation will be hosts to the worshipers in the Succah at Kiddush, and refreshments will be served. The GLOOM CHASER He who knows woman has solved a great mystery. And money is often the root of many a family tree. Some men seek justice and some have it forced upon them. Succoth services at Temple irei Zedek will begin at 8 p. m. Sunday, September 23, with a sermon by Rabbi David L. Zielonka on "Nature Reborn." Sunday morning there will be a celebration in the Succah in which the children will participate. At Temple Beth Israel i)r. Carl N. Herman officiated during the Yom Kippur -civ.re and spoke on "'The Religious Meaning of Courage and Strength," and on "The Changing Style in Sins." During memorial services the Rabbi spoke on "Why Remember?" A successful card party sponsored by Beth Israel Sisterhood waheld at Schwartzberg Hall last Sunday night with Mesdami Cy Argintar and Carl N. Herman as the hostesses. Delicious refreshmentwere served following the games. Mr. and Mr.-. M. Bergman, who left here about seven years ago, are visitors here. Mrs. Maurice Dickson and daughter, Joy. returned to the City after a six weeks' vacation. Mr. Louis Halpern left for a short trip to New York City. Palm Beach Lodge of B'nai B'rith held an important meeting last Monday night at the Monterey Hotel. Important business was discussed. Constitution night was Observed and talks were delivered by Joe Lesser and Sam SchuUer. J eM Joe Lesser. Charles Wax and George Greenberg were guests last Sunday night of the Miami Alumni of the Tau Epsilon Phi. Mrs. Harry N. Sandier and son, Curtis l-'.arle, are visiting in NewYork, where she will be the matron of honor at the marriage of her sister, Miss Blanche Dorothy Hellerbach, to David Swarti next Sunday. Mrs. Caroline Wolf of this city announced the engagement of nor daughter, Bernice, to Stanley Harris of Jacksonville, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lester Harris of Savannah, Ga. Nothing jolts a woman's sweet, trusting disposition like marriage. When a young man flatters a girl she decides later that he really meant it. Many a man with a good scheme lacks the required nerve to push it through. It isn't necessarily a compliment to say a man is sound. Some men are all sound. If your boss is not satisfactory, just mention it to him and perhaps he will permit you to resign. The Bookkeeper—That's an adding machine, Miss Multirox. The Boss's Daughter—Sure! I see how it works. If you want to add four and two you find the number four button and then count two more and that brings you to the number six button and that's the answer. How clever! The Poet—So you've disposed of your little pomeranian? I thought you were so fond of him. The Violinist—Yes, but I had to decide between him and my art. Every time I played a nocturne on my instrument he wagged his tail in ragtime. The Smithsonian people find that North America was originally populated from the west eastward. In those times a horse movie was an Eastern. Mr. and Mrs. Ton. Smith were hosts at a benefit hridg. party for Beth El Sisterhood last Wedncs,| av night. During the evening de, icioug refreshments were serve,. PrUes wereawarded for high scores, the event also being observed as Mr. Smith's birthday. The Dictators Club, which meets at the Y. M. H. A., plan a dance in be held immediately after the holidays. Officers are: Milton Boker, president; Samuel Rosenbloom, vice-president; Sam Abromovitz secretary; Sam Verkauf, treasurer, and Jack Morris, publicity chairman. QUESTIONS and ANSWERS Q. The impression seems to be widespread that Catholics as a rule are "wet." What is the actual attitude of the Catholic Church on the liquor question? \. TinCatholic Church has never taken any stand on the question of prohibition, though many Catholics were opposed to it, principally on the grounds that such an amendment had no place in the Constitution and they Instinctively vote against any further encroachments of the federal government. On the "liquor question" the church consistently In its sermons and through its societies, notably the Catholic Total Abstinence Union, has advocated total abstinence for all who ought or may wish to adopt that practice, and many bishops require a pledge of total abstinence' at the time of confirmation at least up till the twentieth year. If the cranberry industry is having an off autumn, what is the commercial pie trade to do for raisins'.' A Boston preacher reports back that the Germans are "the happiest, most contented and dressed people in Europe." what (dse did Hitler say'.' best And Gold has been turned up by artillery shells in the Gran Chaco. Keep a war going long enough and the parties can find some basis for it. Naturalists have found fish which live on land. It seems foolhardy, considering that experienced farmers can hardly do it. Famous last words: "That's an interesting old firearm you're toying with. How does it work?" The new male coiffure is to be a part in the middle of the hair. Some of our movie stars, like Guy Kibbee, are giving it an advance showing. A Chicago savant has discovered the world's rarest metal in a laboratory. And not, as we would have surmised, in the lining of an old vest. George Jean Nathan, the dramatic critic, we are informed by Esquire, possesses more than 40 overcoats. Any competent critic can acquire as many by attending frequent gatherings of actors and always leaving first. It's peculiar about the munitions salesmen going after small stuff like Peru and passing up the important hardware trade with the Dillingers. Because he had to cook breakfast and do the family washing, Mr. Elmer Robison of Oklahoma has won a divorce and alimony and the use of his maiden name. It's easier to originate an idea than it is to get a capitalist interested in it. Munitions salesmen speak of "greasing the ways" and "taking care of everybody." The reader will understand that this is technical jargon for delivering the ice. Q. What arc the aims of the National Conference of Jews and Christians? A.

Such has been the critical acclaim of John Barrymore's outstanding performance in Columbia's screen version of Broadway's great comedy smash, "20th Century," which opens Sunday and Monday at ihc Tivoli Theatre. Carole Lombard, who enacts the leading feminine role opposite the great Barrymore, comes in for her coast of their island a palatial yacht is shipwrecked. Its owner, a beautiful heiress, and a company of friends are cast ashore. With them is one of the yacht's crew, who proceeds to become master of the company. Though Hie heiress is besieged with suitors among her guests, she and the sailor fall in love—aided by the tropical moonlight. %  hare of praise from this astute thespian. Of Miss Lombard, Barrymore -ays, "She's probably the greatest actress I've ever worked with." In the large star-studded supporting cast are included such perennial favorites of the stage nad screen as Walter Connolly.

Howard Hawks directed. Urges Capital and Labor to Employ Religious Leaders as Mediators New York Labor and capital must be ready to welcome the mediation of religious leaders in industrial disputes, Rabbi Louis I. Newman of Congregation Rodeph Sholem declared today in commenting upon the labor situation throughout the country. "Several religious leaders in the past few years have performed yeoman service as arbitrators in industrial disput* -." Rabbi Newman said. "The government or unofficial lay bodies or mediators should be able to reconcile warring laclions, but the church and synagogue leaders, who stand above the battle, and who have no stake in it except to see that justice is done, can be a vital force in the achievement of industrial peace. But iiiiiiHiiiiiniH im iniiniiiiii church leaders are more concerned with the prevention of industrial outbreaks than with their settlement after the issue has been joined. If capital and labor spokesmen really wish economic peace, it can be had for the asking." Rabbi Newman warned that America must not become "an outpost of the battle between the classes." "We recognize no fixed ,a>te in our system of social and economic life," he said. "We are not interested In the dictatorship of either the capitalist-industrialist group or of the proletariat. It would be a sorry day for America it' one economic class gained control of the government and conducted its affairs for its own particular profit." George Burns and Gracie Allen, "the nitwits of the networks." make their fifth screen appi araneo in Paramount^ adventure-filmusical, "We're Not Dressing," which comes on Sunday and Monday to the Seventh Avenue Theatre. They are featured with Bing Crosby, Carole Lombard, Ethel Merman and Leon Errol.

THE MODERN CITY itinued from Page l) What it will be tomorrow I canWith more than 50 per the 11,000 German Jewish refugees in Palestine already settled in Tel Aviv such a statement is hardly an exaggeration of the An environment of such neat flux and dynamic activity provides an ideal setting for industrial enterprise and expansion. It surprising to find that Tel Aviv is a pioneer industrial center where numerous industries have i" en introduced for the first time into Palestine. In addition to the factories producing building ils, there are today in the 100 per cent Jewish city a large number of industrial establishment engaged in the production of furniture, textiles and knitted food, shoes, cigarettes, orantre cases, candies, etc. In commerce, too, Tel Aviv has made brides. Today it has almost sup i -.iled the city of Jaffa as a center of wholesale trade. Its banks, among the largest in Palatine, testify to the importance f Tel Aviv as the hub of commerce and industry. The concentration of large num' workers has brought into being a labor organization which may well be emulated by workers Not only has it united the various labor groups into one co-ordinated unit, but it has devoted itself to a social and cultural program of a high order. Besides vities in municipal affairs, in which the Labor Federation oc8 decisive role, it has esd workers' societies, a theatre and a group of publications in order to afford its members an opportunity to express themselves and hare in the shaping of the city's cultural life. The "Ohel" theatre is devoted to the dramn of themes of special Interest to the Labor Federation. In the literary field, "Hapoel Hatir" (The Young Worker) and "Ahduth Haavoda" (Labor Union) are tl„ leading periodicals reflecting the point of view of the worker in the upbuilding of Palestine. The advanced social and cultural endeavor of the labor class is only M phase of a highly developed 'iial and civic system in Tel Av >v. Tel Aviv has more than 100 schools with about 15,000 pupils. Its public library, known as \Shacontaina more than 20,'"' umes in Hebrew and other languages, and the Labor Fcderantral library boasts of 75,000 The Hebrew theatre as a n,w art expressive of the rebirth '• Hebrew culture has reached a Mgh degree of development in Tel Aviv Here the Habimah (the pioBy Sister Fides Shepperson, Ph. 1).

The Psalms—those hymns of praise which once were chorused by four thousand Voices led on by harp and flute and pipe and cymbals, and timbrels and trumpets in .the WOrld-WOnder temple of Solomon are even yet unsurpassed as expressionof man'adoring awe and wonder at the works of God. Solomon'.Canticle of Canticles the love gladness of his youth; Proverbs, the courage of his maturity; and Kcclesiastes, the -ad wisdom of hideclining years are imperishable records of the heart of man.

Full observance of all the precepts of the Prophetby all the world w.mld at once usher in the millennium. Sincerity, justice, righteousness, mercy and truth would kiss and walk together throughout a land of peace and plenty and brotherly love. The call to righteousness, to integrity in the inmost heart, to Whitelight sincerity in things seen and unseen -reverberates throughout the sacred text.

And if his understanding fail, have patience with him, and despise him not when thou art in thy strength, for the relieving of the father shall not be forgotten. Ecclesiastes. Despise not the hungry soul; and provoke not the poor in his want. Afflict not the heart of the needy, and defer not to give to him that is in distress.—Kcclesiastes. For the hope of the wicked is a3 dust which is blown away with the wind, and as a thin froth which is dispersed by the storm; and a smoke which is scattered abroad by the wind. But the just shall live for evermore; and their reward is with the Lord, and the care of them with the most High. Therefore shall they receive a kingdom of glory and a crown of beauty at the hand of the Ix)rd; for with His right hand He will cover them; and with His holy arm lbwill defend them.—Wisdom. Geneva—James Q. McDonald, League of Nations High Commissioner for German Refugees, will remove the office of the Refugee Commission from Lausanne to London within the next few weeks. Simultaneously Mr. McDonald made it known that despite the fact that $5,000,000 has already been raised for the relief of the refugees, 10.000 of them are still homeless. Some 25,000 of them have been permanently settled in new homes, mostly in Palestine. In calling attention to the precarious plight of the 40,000 still wandering over the capitals of Europe, Mr. McDonald criticized the Christian world for its failure to do anything in behalf of the exiles. Q. What is the Jewish attitude toward proselytizing? A. Rabbi Harry I.evi of Boston answers this question as follows: We Jews agree that the right and duty to preach what is held to be religious truth is not to be denied to any religion, and is indeed an essential of any vital religion. But if this be done to adherents of other faiths, it must be done only to adults, and without bribes or pressure, economic or social. 7 '."AVE. COURAGE. Some people make no enemies because they lack courage. Others make them because they are not willing to be cowards. To be without enemies is to be negligible or dead. It is a great joy to have the courage of conviction. You may be unpopular unless, like Teddy Roosevelt, you have a great amount of self-loyalty, in which case you compel admiration, but you have the deep satisfaction of reflecting the superb smile of Him of whom we are told that, He sits in heaven and laughs.—Dr. Alexander Lyons.

But iti no way is Jewish tradition preserved with so much color, majesty and spirit as in the festivals and holiday celebrations in Tel Aviv. Even the Sabbath, whose significance has been completely lost in this country, takes oll new meaning. A serene peacefulness and joyOUS calm descends upon the city with the arnval of Sabbath. All work is at a standstill and the population gathers on the shores of the blue Mediterranean or promenades on its beautiful boardwalk in contemplation and qaiet rejoicing.
