Cincinnati, Ohio B'nai B'rith's
tenth Hillel Foundation will bo
opened in the autumn at Pennsyl-
vania State College, it was an-
nounced at the conclusion of the
annual meeting of the B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundation Commission here.
The new Foundation will be the
only one in District No. 3 of B'nai
B'rith.
Dr. Ralph I). Hetzel, president
of Penn State, sent the following
wire to the B'nai B'rith national
office: "The administration giva
hearty approval to the establish-
ment of a Hillel Foundation in our
college community."
There are nearly 400 Jewish stu-
dents at Penn State, which has a
total student body of 5,000.
The college is located in a small
town where Jewish students were
able to have few if any Jewissi
contacts. The new B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundation will thus supply
the need that has long existed
there for a rabbi, a Jewish cul-
tural and social center, and an or-
ganization to represent Jewish stu-
dents of all opinions.
State Inspector
To Aid Citizens
Zionist Leader Deserving
On Visit Here Consideration!
Joe S. Barman, chief intangible
tax inspector, is being sent to Dade
County by Comptroller J. M. Lee
for the purpose of aiding the citi-
zens of this county in filing proper
intangible tax returns as required
by law.
Mr. Earman can be seen at the
office of the tax assessor in the
county court house on Tuesday and
Wednesday, February 5th and 6th,
where he will answer such ques-
tions as may be asked about the
intangible tax law and to explain
to the tax assessor changes in the
enforcement system.
It is to the material advantage
of every owner of intangible per-
sonal property to file that return
now, than to have a pink slip come
from the intangible tax department
of the state listing intangible as-
sets and wanting to know why the
law was not complied with.
The statutory penalty for not
complying with the provisions of
the intangible tax law provides six
months in jail, $500 fine or both.

Tlic above is the main building of the famous Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Yeshiva, and *> -In.., College at
New York, with Dr. Bernard Revel as its dean and president. Founded by a group of enthusiastic tradi-
tional Jews sonic years ago, it has developed as the most powerful factor for the preservation of Orthodox
Jewry not alone in this country, hut even in the worl i at large. With the establishment of the Yeshiva Col-
lege several years ago ii has combined the study of Jewish law and culture with the general study of science
in distinctly Jewish surroundings. On its faculty arc me o( the most outstanding Jewish as well as n in-
Jewish scientists, many of whom have served without pay for long periods of time to help in
these Jewish ideals. Dr. Bernard Revel recognized tod as one of the most outstanding Jewish scholars, has
directed its activities not only for the purpose of training Rabbis, hut for the education of Jewish laymen
in higher Jewish learning and general scientific training. Rabbi Mayer Freed of New York City is in Miami
at this time in the interests of raising funds to help the institution out of its present financial difficultes.
Cultural Ambassadors
Among the notable visitors now being welcomed to these
shores are the two distinguished Jewish writers, Sholom
ksch and Stefan Zweig.
Asch, whose sister. Mrs. Mendel Scheinberg, is a pioneer
resident of Miami and active in Jewish communal work here,
Jpersonifies Yiddish literature and has, in the last few years,
[through translations of his works, acquired an international
j reputation as one of the masters of contemporary literature,
|while Zweig, who has propagandized the ideals of Holland and
Tolstoi, symbolizes the human culture of Europe.
These two ambassadors of broad, international, human
culture are welcome in this country. They do not belong to
iny Jewish party, nor do they represent any specific economic
[philosophy of life. They are torch-bearers of the eternal and
fundamental values in a universal civilization.
A Historic Conference
The National Conference for Palestine at Washington
must be regarded as the most important organized Jewish
assembly held in America since the days of war relief.
According to the official figures issued by the secre-
tariat of the Conference, 1,587 delegates representing some
1,300,000 Jews responded to the call by the Zionist Organi-
zation of America to view, consider and formulate plans for
the acceleration of the economic upbuilding of Palestine.
The list of organizations represented contained the most
important national bodies and among them several which
Until now have never cared to affiliate themselves officially
with the ideology of Zionism.
As a demonstration of Jewish interest in the upbuilding
>f a homeland in Palestine, the Washington Conference was
an epochal landmark in the history of pro-Palestine activity
In the United States. The message delivered by Secretary
Of the Interior Ickes to the opening session was not a polite,
Meaningless greeting on the part of the government, but an
expression of the consistent and genuine good will which all
federal administrations since the days of Woodrow Wilson
lave manifested toward Jewish aspirations in Palestine.
When Mr. Ickes, among other things, said that "Amer-
ica has nothing but good will for the reborn Jewish nation-
ilism," he furthered a unified spirit among the various
groups represented at the Conference.
He again emphasized to the non-Zionist group interested
Palestine that Jewish nationalism as expressed in the de-
velopment of Palestine does not, in any way, conflict with the
>roper functioning of 100 per cent American citizenship.
Vhen this thought penetrates all the recesses and folds of
the American Jewish mentality throughout the country, a
rtall> great action for Palestine, transcending all party lines.
Can be expected from American Jewry.

"Our Chosen Leader"
No. 7
Scripture Reading, Proverbs, Chapter VIII, Verses 12.16, Inclusive
There are lands where, today, ancient customs and beliefs still
pvevail. In those countries there is prevalent the idea that kings rule
by divine right; that the ruling house or dynasty had, at its origin, the
sanction of God; that, of all other families, the Lord selected this par-
ticular one to have dominion over the land and it3 people. Thus, in
Japan, for example, the Mikado li red a lineal descendant of the
Sun. In other lands, where the powers and authority of the ruler
have been limited, there is yet a remnant of that old superstition about
the Divine Right of Kings. I need not now go into detail about the
coronation ceremony and the anointing of kings. It was more of a
consecration of the individual than a sign of heavenly approval. Too
many robber barons and brigands became kings for us to believe that
God had a predilection for th.-it type of monarch. More about that at
some future time, please tiod.
If the monarch: of old reigned by right of divine sanction and
selection, then the president! elected by the vote of the populace surely
have a claim to designation as approved by God. The rabbis teach
thai "kol hamon kekol Shaddai" the e of tin- multitude is as the
voice of thi Almight>." It follov who wins public
m is favor..! :' the Lord, who manifests His wishes
through tl oJ the multitude. This need not be taken as
justification for mob rule nor fur stamping as correct the atrocities
often committed by groups swayed by base emotions and aroused to
unreasoning frenzy by glib-tongued demagogs.
All the fongoing is by way of preface to lead up to the state-
ment that Franklin Delano Roosevelt, President of the United States,
whose 53rd birthday will be observed on Wednesday of this week, merits
the- love and esteem of every citizen of the land. He has proven him-
self devoted to the best interests of the nation and its peoples and
loyal to his oath of iff
I do not applaud the President for his service to us. I remark
merely that, in a land accustomed to being despoiled by office holders,
it is a rare treat to find one public servant who is just that. The Pres-
Ident, I belii ve, wants not the applause, but the co-operation of the
citizens of the land. Some years ago, in New York City, I attended
a vaudeville show. One of the performers was a comedian who was
very clever. He was frequently interrupted by the applause of the
audience. At one point in his act he raised his hand to still the applause
of the appreciative audience. When the hand-clapping ceased the
actor said, "What's the idea of applauding me? That's silly. I'm
only doing my work. How would it look if I walked into your office
or your store or your shop while you were working and I stood around
applauding you? Would that be sensible?" With apologies to our
Chief Executive for the analogy, it appears to me that he wants no
applause for merely doing the task that he has undertaken.
My reason for having dedicated this program to our President is
not to add to his honor or his glory, but, rather that we, in our less
important positions, might learn from his example. President Roose-
velt is not perfect. No man is. He is not infallible. No man is. He
makes mistakes in judgment. Everyone does. But, he moves ever
forward towards the goal he has set for himself. Not every1 man does
that. The President has advisers. He consults experts in various
fields. He admits that there are limitations to his knowledge. How
many of us will listen to counsel? How many of! us will be guided by
expert advice? How many of us will admit that our knowledge is not
unlimited? That's the first sign of a great man and a great mind
to recognize one's shortcomings.
If you will pardon my personal references, I shall use myself as
the horrible example. I consider that I have a fairly broad education
and a knowledge of many things. Suppose that I have studied chem-
istry, must I lay claims to being an authority, to being a chemist?
Assuming that I have some medical knowledge, is it proper that I set
myself up as a physician; and what if I have studied law, must I be
ashamed to admit that there are lawyers who know more law than I
do? Is it any reflection on me that, as a rabbi, I am not a civil or
electrical engineer? Does it detract from the value of my sermons
that, though I have carried a watch, lo! these many years, I am as
yet compelled to go to a watch-repairer when my timepiece pauses in
its regular running?
We may, with profit, learn from President Roosevelt that the
essential thing is to believe one's self right. To convince others that
we are right is secondary. Can you imagine the state of this country
if the President hesitated and delayed planning and performing for the
nation until he had convinced all or most of the people that his motive
was a good one? Suppose he was deterred by the disapproval of those
who might be affected by his suggested laws and tlic exercise of his
executive powers? Can you visualize the chaos, the stagnation? Why
do you cater to the whims and the fancies and the prejudices of those
who stand at the side-lines? If a task is entrusted to you, and you
have made a study of it and are qualified to act, why do you lack
the courage to go forward? Does the opinion of critics mean more to
you than the satisfaction of a job well done?
Too many people have a mistaken idea about the office to which
they elect a man. They believe that he has been put there to do their
lidding in preference to using his own intelligence and knowledge.
Such erroneous views put me in mind of the ignorance displayed re-
cetly by a Jew who was chanting a prayer. The wording in the
prayer book is, "Boruch Elohenu shebra'anu lichevodo"Blessed is our
God, who hath created us for His glory. This gentleman, ignorant of
Hebrew grammar, changed the vowelling in one of the words and dis-
torted the verse most unusually. Instead of "shebra'anu" he read
"shebaranu"which alters the thought from "who has created us" to
"whom we have created." Thus, the verse becomes, in English,
"Blessed is our God, whom we have cre.Ud for ^g**^
that! We h^e created God!! I often wonder, from the lbert.es wh
some people take, if they do not actually bel.eve just **>
The kings of old. under absolute f^Xr!lle sanction

It was treason to doubt the wisdom of the Empero. Fear held them
in obedience where all else failed. Kings were God-cho en and had
to be endured. Not so with presidents. They are our createschosen
by us, and we may respect them or not, at will. We may **%?
them and insult them with impunity. But. that was never the Jew sh
procedure. In Exodus XX.1-27 we read. "Thou shalt not "vUeGod;
nor curse a ruler of thy people." The term "God" ,s ""** "
mean the judge.s of the people. Respect for law and order demands
obedience, and the Talmud teaches that "dinoh d.malchusoh d.noh -
the law of the government is law.
When a people is fortunate enough to have chosen its leader
wiselv. to have selected a devoted public servant, to have given the
helm'into th,- hands of one who has the courage to steer the Ship ol
Slate through troubled waters and to head for a safe harbor, it is tne

The story of "Power" has to do
with the brilliant financial genius,
Joseph Suss Oppenheimer. Estab-
lished in commerce in the yeir
1730, he is presented to Karl Al-
exander, the reigning duke of
Wurtenibei -g. Suss' outstanding
ability leads him to dizzy heights
of power. He becomes the force
behind the ducal throne. Beauties
of the court are at his beck anil
call. Intrigue, however, eventually
threatens to undermine him. The
treachery of the duke imperils him.
But there follows a period of lux-
urious wealth and a !ife of extreme
extravagance and lavishness with
almost absolute authority over the
state. Then, disaster.

Hosts of morbid, tired and dis-

amazed at this new easy way '.o
regulate the bowels. Give it a ten-
day trial. After the third or fourth
day you will begin to feel more
peppy, your bowels will begin to
move regularly and you will again
enjoy life.
Bell Honey Krushed Wheat Bread
gits right down to the cause cf
constipation and supplies the need-

rich, nutty flavor makes it doubly
appetizing. The crisp whole wheat
and pure honey are easily assimi-
lated. They nourish the digestive
glands. They produce the juices
that enable you to digest the fats
and starches. Normally these keep
you healthy, but if allowed to clog
and retard the natural processes of
elimination, stoppage occurs, head-
aches and ill health follow.
Be sure to try Bell Honey

already sliced and wrapped in
moisture proof cellophane. It .8
easy to identify because the outer
crust is covered with an extn
coating of crushed wheat.

* wdewisFi Florid tin FLORIDA'S ONLY JEWISH WEEKLY Vol. 8—No. 5 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1935 Price Five Cent* Jewish News Around the f World Cincinnati, Ohio B'nai B'rith's tenth Hillel Foundation will bo opened in the autumn at Pennsylvania State College, it was announced at the conclusion of the annual meeting of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation Commission here. The new Foundation will be the only one in District No. 3 of B'nai B'rith. Dr. Ralph I). Hetzel, president of Penn State, sent the following wire to the B'nai B'rith national office: "The administration giva hearty approval to the establishment of a Hillel Foundation in our college community." There are nearly 400 Jewish students at Penn State, which has a total student body of 5,000. The college is located in a small town where Jewish students were able to have few if any Jewissi contacts. The new B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation will thus supply the need that has long existed there for a rabbi, a Jewish cultural and social center, and an organization to represent Jewish students of all opinions. State Inspector To Aid Citizens Zionist Leader Deserving On Visit Here Consideration! Joe S. Barman, chief intangible tax inspector, is being sent to Dade County by Comptroller J. M. Lee for the purpose of aiding the citizens of this county in filing proper intangible tax returns as required by law. Mr. Earman can be seen at the office of the tax assessor in the county court house on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 5th and 6th, where he will answer such questions as may be asked about the intangible tax law and to explain to the tax assessor changes in the enforcement system. It is to the material advantage of every owner of intangible personal property to file that return now, than to have a pink slip come from the intangible tax department of the state listing intangible assets and wanting to know why the law was not complied with. The statutory penalty for not complying with the provisions of the intangible tax law provides six months in jail, $500 fine or both. Announcements BETH DAVID < ONCiREGATION (Conservative) 139 S. W.

Founded by a group of enthusiastic traditional Jews sonic years ago, it has developed as the most powerful factor for the preservation of Orthodox Jewry not alone in this country, hut even in the worl i at large. With the establishment of the Yeshiva College several years ago ii has combined the study of Jewish law and culture with the general study of science in distinctly Jewish surroundings. On its faculty arc me o( the most outstanding Jewish as well as n inJewish scientists, many of whom have served without pay for long periods of time to help in these Jewish ideals. Dr. Bernard Revel recognized tod as one of the most outstanding Jewish scholars, has directed its activities not only for the purpose of training Rabbis, hut for the education of Jewish laymen in higher Jewish learning and general scientific training. Rabbi Mayer Freed of New York City is in Miami at this time in the interests of raising funds to help the institution out of its present financial difficultes. Cultural Ambassadors Among the notable visitors now being welcomed to these shores are the two distinguished Jewish writers, Sholom ksch and Stefan Zweig. Asch, whose sister. Mrs. Mendel Scheinberg, is a pioneer resident of Miami and active in Jewish communal work here, Jpersonifies Yiddish literature and has, in the last few years, [through translations of his works, acquired an international j reputation as one of the masters of contemporary literature, |while Zweig, who has propagandized the ideals of Holland and Tolstoi, symbolizes the human culture of Europe. These two ambassadors of broad, international, human culture are welcome in this country. They do not belong to iny Jewish party, nor do they represent any specific economic [philosophy of life. They are torch-bearers of the eternal and fundamental values in a universal civilization. A Historic Conference The National Conference for Palestine at Washington must be regarded as the most important organized Jewish assembly held in America since the days of war relief. According to the official figures issued by the secretariat of the Conference, 1,587 delegates representing some 1,300,000 Jews responded to the call by the Zionist Organization of America to view, consider and formulate plans for the acceleration of the economic upbuilding of Palestine. The list of organizations represented contained the most important national bodies and among them several which Until now have never cared to affiliate themselves officially with the ideology of Zionism. As a demonstration of Jewish interest in the upbuilding >f a homeland in Palestine, the Washington Conference was an epochal landmark in the history of pro-Palestine activity In the United States. The message delivered by Secretary Of the Interior Ickes to the opening session was not a polite, Meaningless greeting on the part of the government, but an expression of the consistent and genuine good will which all federal administrations since the days of Woodrow Wilson lave manifested toward Jewish aspirations in Palestine. When Mr. Ickes, among other things, said that "America has nothing but good will for the reborn Jewish nationilism," he furthered a unified spirit among the various groups represented at the Conference. He again emphasized to the non-Zionist group interested Palestine that Jewish nationalism as expressed in the development of Palestine does not, in any way, conflict with the >roper functioning of 100 per cent American citizenship. Vhen this thought penetrates all the recesses and folds of the American Jewish mentality throughout the country, a rtall> great action for Palestine, transcending all party lines. Can be expected from American Jewry. listadruth Gets Large Government Contract Jerusalem—The Histadruth Habvdim (Jewish Federation of Labor) has been awarded a $175,000 public works contract by the Palestine government. The contract covers various public enterprises in Jerusalem, but principally the installation of a water pipeline from the coast. The Histadruth will he in a position to employ one hundred Jewish laborers for the next six-month period in carrying out the projects under the contract.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 27, 1935 "Our Chosen Leader" No. 7 Scripture Reading, Proverbs, Chapter VIII, Verses 12.16, Inclusive There are lands where, today, ancient customs and beliefs still pvevail. In those countries there is prevalent the idea that kings rule by divine right; that the ruling house or dynasty had, at its origin, the sanction of God; that, of all other families, the Lord selected this particular one to have dominion over the land and it3 people. Thus, in Japan, for example, the Mikado li red a lineal descendant of the Sun. In other lands, where the powers and authority of the ruler have been limited, there is yet a remnant of that old superstition about the Divine Right of Kings. I need not now go into detail about the coronation ceremony and the anointing of kings. It was more of a consecration of the individual than a sign of heavenly approval. Too many robber barons and brigands became kings for us to believe that God had a predilection for th.-it type of monarch. More about that at some future time, please tiod. If the monarch: of old reigned by right of divine sanction and selection, then the president! elected by the vote of the populace surely have a claim to designation as approved by God. The rabbis teach thai "kol hamon kekol Shaddai" the e of tinmultitude is as the voice of thi Almight>." It follov who wins public m is favor..! :' the Lord, who manifests His wishes through tl oJ the multitude. This need not be taken as justification for mob rule nor fur stamping as correct the atrocities often committed by groups swayed by base emotions and aroused to unreasoning frenzy by glib-tongued demagogs. All the fongoing is by way of preface to lead up to the statement that Franklin Delano Roosevelt, President of the United States, whose 53rd birthday will be observed on Wednesday of this week, merits thelove and esteem of every citizen of the land. He has proven himself devoted to the best interests of the nation and its peoples and loyal to his oath of iff • I do not applaud the President for his service to us. I remark merely that, in a land accustomed to being despoiled by office holders, it is a rare treat to find one public servant who is just that. The PresIdent, I belii ve, wants not the applause, but the co-operation of the citizens of the land. Some years ago, in New York City, I attended a vaudeville show. One of the performers was a comedian who was very clever. He was frequently interrupted by the applause of the audience. At one point in his act he raised his hand to still the applause of the appreciative audience. When the hand-clapping ceased the actor said, "What's the idea of applauding me? That's silly. I'm only doing my work. How would it look if I walked into your office or your store or your shop while you were working and I stood around applauding you? Would that be sensible?" With apologies to our Chief Executive for the analogy, it appears to me that he wants no applause for merely doing the task that he has undertaken. My reason for having dedicated this program to our President is not to add to his honor or his glory, but, rather that we, in our less important positions, might learn from his example. President Roosevelt is not perfect. No man is. He is not infallible. No man is. He makes mistakes in judgment. Everyone does. But, he moves ever forward towards the goal he has set for himself. Not every 1 man does that. The President has advisers. He consults experts in various fields. He admits that there are limitations to his knowledge. How many of us will listen to counsel? How many of! us will be guided by expert advice? How many of us will admit that our knowledge is not unlimited? That's the first sign of a great man and a great mind— to recognize one's shortcomings. If you will pardon my personal references, I shall use myself as the horrible example. I consider that I have a fairly broad education and a knowledge of many things. Suppose that I have studied chemistry, must I lay claims to being an authority, to being a chemist? Assuming that I have some medical knowledge, is it proper that I set myself up as a physician; and what if I have studied law, must I be ashamed to admit that there are lawyers who know more law than I do? Is it any reflection on me that, as a rabbi, I am not a civil or electrical engineer? Does it detract from the value of my sermons that, though I have carried a watch, lo! these many years, I am as yet compelled to go to a watch-repairer when my timepiece pauses in its regular running? We may, with profit, learn from President Roosevelt that the essential thing is to believe one's self right. To convince others that we are right is secondary. Can you imagine the state of this country if the President hesitated and delayed planning and performing for the nation until he had convinced all or most of the people that his motive was a good one? Suppose he was deterred by the disapproval of those who might be affected by his suggested laws and tlic exercise of his executive powers? Can you visualize the chaos, the stagnation? Why do you cater to the whims and the fancies and the prejudices of those who stand at the side-lines? If a task is entrusted to you, and you have made a study of it and are qualified to act, why do you lack the courage to go forward? Does the opinion of critics mean more to you than the satisfaction of a job well done? Too many people have a mistaken idea about the office to which they elect a man. They believe that he has been put there to do their lidding in preference to using his own intelligence and knowledge. Such erroneous views put me in mind of the ignorance displayed recetly by a Jew who was chanting a prayer. The wording in the prayer book is, "Boruch Elohenu shebra'anu lichevodo"—Blessed is our God, who hath created us for His glory. This gentleman, ignorant of Hebrew grammar, changed the vowelling in one of the words and distorted the verse most unusually. Instead of "shebra'anu" he read "shebaranu"—which alters the thought from "who has created us" to "whom we have created." Thus, the verse becomes, in English, "Blessed is our God, whom we have cre.Ud for ^g** !" ^ that! We h^e created God!! I often wonder, from the lbert.es wh some people take, if they do not actually bel.eve just **> The kings of old. under absolute !"!" f^Xr!ll e sanction and death. They were not quest.oned. Thc.r decrees.Dor_ of God. It was a wise move to dupe the populace into^W^Jf the It was treason to doubt the wisdom of the Empero. Fear held them in obedience where all else failed. Kings were God-cho en and had to be endured. Not so with presidents. They are our createschosen by us, and we may respect them or not, at will. We may **£%? them and insult them with impunity. But. that was never the Jew sh procedure. In Exodus XX.1-27 we read. "Thou shalt not "vUeGod; nor curse a ruler of thy people." The term "God" ,s £""** mean the judge.s of the people. Respect for law and order demands obedience, and the Talmud teaches that "dinoh d.malchusoh d.noh the law of the government is law. When a people is fortunate enough to have chosen its leader wiselv. to have selected a devoted public servant, to have given the helm'into th,hands of one who has the courage to steer the Ship ol Slate through troubled waters and to head for a safe harbor, it is tne duty Of that people, jointly and severally, collectively and md.vulually, t. assist the Chief Executive by following his example and by carrying out his requests which take the form of executive order?. old owned the lands and all their efforts were in theii' own behalf. Our Chosen leaders .lo not hold title to the land they seek to improve; those who do their bidding are not then serfs; our President renders a service of love, our attitude towards him should he one of love.
