|Governor Sholtz Endorses
Brotherhood Day, to be observed throughout
Morida and other paits of the country on February
22nd and 23rd, was officially endorsed by Governor
David Sholtz in a communication to the National
|Conference of Jews and Christians, under whose
auspices the observance will be held.
The purpose of Brotherhood Day is to bring
Mmbem of various religious and racial groups to
irork together on civic and communal problems
ind to establish justice, amity, understanding and
co-operation among such groups.
In endorsing this year's observances ih. oughout
^he state, Governor Sholtz said: "It gives me great
pleasure to expiess my appreciation and approval
Bf the aims and purposes of the National Confer-
pnce of Jews and Christians in Ihe observance of
Tebrua.y 22nd and 23rd as Brotherhood Day. It
is most fitting that this observance should begin
Dn the birthday of the Father of our Country, and
that we should be mindful of our heritage of civil
ind religious liberty.
"America has been built by the co-operation of
jur people, regardless of religion or creed, and
their contribution to our progress has made this
Ination an example of what can be accomplished
in developing good citizenship and co-operative
community life through a proper understanding of
Iths brotherhood of man."

The necessity of guarding and perpetuating the
American tradition of civil and religious liberty
for all is stressed by President Franklin D. Roose-
velt in a letter to the National Conference of Jews
and Christians endorsing the third annual observ-
ance of Brotherhood day throughout the country on
February 22nd and 23rd. President Ellen F. Pen-
dletoc of Wellesley College, Wellesley, Mass., is
national chairman of the Brotherhood Day observ-
"I am informed that the National Conference of
Jews and Christians is sponsoring the third annual
observance of Brotherhood Day throughout the
country on Saturday and Sunday, February 22nd
and 23rd, 1936.
"The emphasis this year which, I understand,
is to be upon the contributions of colonial and rev-
olutionary leaders to the American tradition of
civil and religious liberty for all, is both timely
and wholesome. We need ever to be reminded of
the value of these principles, of the necessity to
guard and perpetuate them and of the debt we owe
to the fathers by whom they were first proclaimed
and stoutly defended.
"1 hope that with this aim Brotherhood Day will
be very widely observed.

Miami was shocked to learn of
ili, death early last Saturday
morning of Roddey B. Burdine,
prominent merchant and civic lead-
er. Mr. Burdine was the son of
the late Mr. and Mrs. William M.
Burdine, founders of Burdine's, an I
was born October 14, 1886. He
came to Miami with his parents in
1898, when Burdine's was opened.
He received his education in Miami
schools and after leaving high
school went to work for his father.
In 1911 on the death of his father
he assumed management and con-
trol of the business and erected
what was then the largest store
south of Jacksonville, since build-
ing it to one of the largest mer-
cantile establishments in the coun-
try. The history of Burdine's Inc.,
after control passed to Mr. Burdine
following the death of his father,
is best told in figures showing
growth, retrenchment and then con-
tinued expansion to a new peak.
The year after he took the helm
the store was moved to a five-story
building on E. Flagler street that
forms part of the present store.
Then the structure was too large
for the store and the three top
floors were rented for office space.
In 1920 the store was expanded
to include property at S. E. First
street and Miami avenue, with a
two-story structure. Two years
later two more stories were added.
In 1925, with the boom in full
bloom, property in S. E. First
street, just to the east of the store,
was taken over and a six-story
structure was erected. That year,
Burdine's business was the largest
of any store in the Southeast and
showed an increase of 20-1 per
cent over the previous year. Then
followed retrenchments, but by
1929 the forward march had been

For Jews, who throughout the ages, have always been
the glad bearers of tidings of amity, good will and under,
standing to their neighbors, the celebration and observance
of Brotherhood Day is but the carrying into effect of true
Judaism. vWe reprint elsewhere the trite sayings of Rabbi
Akiba, noted sage, who epitomized the very essence of Broth-
erhood, not merely one or two days a year, but every minute
of his life.
It is but fitting that Brotherhood Day be observed on
the anniversary of the birth of that true American. George
Washington, with the slogan this year. "Make America Safe
for Differences," only a natural consequence. v Here in the
land of sunshine it is a happy fact that all of us, be we Jew.
Catholic or Protestant, have recognized the contributions of
Jefferson, Adams. Madison, Lord Baltimore, Roger Williams
and others who established the very foundations upon which
America was built. Happily, we have learned the lessons of
the American traditions and principles of civil and religious
Brotherhood Day. properly, does not urge church unions.
Rather it emphasizes the faith and loyalty to one's own group.
It engages in no religious controversy. It does emphasize
(hose social and communal tasks which are of common con-
cern and interest, and calls for co-operation from all. Broth-
erhood Day proclaims that Jews, Catholics and Protestants
in their religious beliefs and rituals may be as separate as
the fingers in an outstretched hand, while in their impact
upon common undertakings which good citizenship requires,
they should be as united as a man's clenched fist.
It is in this spirit, truly Jewish, and truly American,
(hat we urge the observance of Brotherhood Day.
WHY REMAIN JEWS?
By JACOB H. KAPLAN. Ph. I).
Why not remain Jews? In the
first place, how can you help it?
What can you do ulmut it? Why
want to do anything about it? "If
I cannot carry mountains on my
back, neither can you crack a nut,"
says Emerson in his poem, "The
-Mountain and the Squirrel." Each
has its own place. Why do we
have to give any reason for be-
ing or remaining Jews? Why give
any excuses or reasons at all ? It
never occurs to a Chinaman in
China to wish to be anybody else,
neither would it occur to a Jew in
Palestine to wish to be something
else than a Jew. It is only in an
unhealthy, pathological state of
mind or body that would ask such
a question. But some Jews do ask
it, and why?
If they answer in the affirma-
tive, they probably strengthen
themselves with the reason that
the Jews have given Western civ-
ilization the finest outlook on lift-
that Jewish culture is one of the
finest products of mind and heart
that the human family has pro-
duced. One does feel a glow
| has produced something of lasting
value to the human race. This feel-
ing of satisfaction gives color and
' tone to human character. A good
I lather is an inspiration to sons
'and daughters. An artist, a schol-
J ar or a musician of notes does en-
hance the value of life for all the
memberi of the family.
1 And so it is but natural, for
those who know the history of the
1 Jews, to feel that it is glorious to
be a Jew.
When one asks the question.
why remain Jews? there must be
some reason that evokes such a
question. What are some of these
There are economic reasons, so-
The death of Peter Wiernik, editor-in-chief of the Jew-
ish Morning Journal since its inception, robs American Jew-
ish journalism of a unique figure and Jewish life of a quaint
type. Although an integral part of the Yiddish press, he
always seemed to be aloof from it. He was the editor of an
Orthodox paper, yet his views placed him among the lib-
erals. He was a representative of the Jewish masses, but
was accepted by the Jewish "classes." Publicity and clamor
did not cloak his activities. Throughout his career there
was a calmness and tranquility about him that was in sham
contrast to the hysteria so often characteristic of the Yid-
A distinguished historian, he was an able interpreter of
Jewsh life. His life was marked by honest and ethical con-
structivism. He was never one to indulge in futile criticism
or vain denunciations. At no time did he participate in the
inner controversies of Jewish life. Wiernik made no en-
emies, not because he had no views, but rather because he
let others have theirs. His journalistic attitude was always
that of the objective historian. Jewish journalism and Jew-
ish life in this country are the poorer for his passing.

self and appear as someone else,
I can take advantage in this prej-
udiced town of the business op-
portunities that are here" And so
there is a sufficient reason to this
one for not remaining a Jew.

to enter a professional life, and

dominant social group, and as a
Jew he cannot do so; there is prej-
udice against him. If he is be-
lieved to be someone else the
doors of the social halls arc
opened to him.
From the point of view of eco-

vantage, it sometimes turns out
to be a delusion, as there is not

RODDEY B. BURDINE
A Tribute to a Gentile From
By ISIDOB COHEN
The passing of Roddey Burdine is an irreparable loss
to the city, county and slate, and a most painful experience
In his countless friends and admirers. As a boy he stood
out as an inspiring example to Miami's pioneer youth and
in his manhood he was generally regarded as a model citi-
zen and gentleman in the full sense of the word. Despite
his material success, as evidenced by the commercial mon-
ument he created in this cily, he was charmingly unassum-
ing, and approachable to Ihe humblest of his townsmen
needing aid or counsel. It requires strength of character
to resist the intoxication of success. Roddey manifested
this admirable trait in the highest degree. He was public-
spirited and a most capable civic leader. He was never
known to lag in responding to the call of civic duty. 11 <
left an indellible mark upon every stage of Miami's devel-
opment in the past quarter of a century. He was generous
in his support of all worthy causes, and his personal char-
ities were invariably accompanied with ineffable sympathy
and kindness. None of his many beneficiaries was made
to feel that he had accepted charity. They were made to
feel that they had bestowed a favor upon the cheerful
donor by accepting his bounty. As an example of this
rare attribute in his makeup, I recall an incident which
occurred a day or so before he became ill; as I was wait-
ing at his secretary's desk for a conference to which I had
been invited, a man who bore the marks of distress upon
his countenance stepped up alongside of me as Roddey
opened the door of his private office to admit me. Fixing
a searching look upon the unhappy man. he whispered to
me to wait until he got through with him. A few minutes
later the man. who had obviously come for relief, emerged
from the office with a firm step and a smile upon his lips.
Roddey was also noted for his freedom from prejudice.
He never questioned an applicant for employment as to hi*
creed, nor had he shown sectarian discrimination in his
frequent and generous donations of merchandise and money
to the innumerable philanthropic organizations of the city
and county, many of which were Jewish.
Roddey li Burdine has left a monument in the form
of a great emporium, which reflects his marked business
acumen, but his most enduring monument is his enviabh-
reputation. Of Roddey it ran truly he said that he laid up
greater treasures in heaven than he left upon earth.

The Miami Beach Chamber of

We are happy lo extend our
congratulations to you for your
courageous action in protecting
our tourists against gouging ho-
tel operators. You are to be
commended. Action such as this
will result in lasting benefits to
May we. however, at the same
time direct your attention to con-
duct on the part of some of the
hotel operators of Miami Beach,
which, we believe, is Jl'ST AS
HARMFUL and EQ I A 1.1. Y
REPREHENSIBLE as the rais-
ing of rates. We refer to the
contemptible practice on the part
of some hotels catering to the
observant Jewish tourist. These
hotels appeal to the orthodox and
observant Jewish tourist and ad-
vertise "Dietary laws observed
here" and as "kosher." As a
matter of fact, they are distinct-
ly and definitely violating every
rule by purchasing non-kosher
meats and deliberately deceiving
(heir clientele, because of the
small pecuniary gain they may
derive. The net result of this has
been that many tourists are be-
ing lost to this area, and poten-
tial future residents are being
driven away from Miami Beach.
It is not a matter of religion, it
is a matter of common business

B.r AI Segal
The young fool who assassinat-
ed the head Nazi in Switzerland
certainly did us no service. Be-
sides, assas-ination is the least sat-
isfactory way of vengeance, Ince
it cuts off tyrants with no pain
whatever at the height f power.
It is. I should say. rather a happy
death for a tyrant.
GREETINGS TO AM,
Were I a tyrant I should not be
afraid of assassination so much as
of getting pushed off my high
place and having my nose rubbed
in the dust while the irony of my
fate laughed at me.
To suffer this laughter is far
more painful than a quick bullet.
To have been omnipotent, to have
had the destinies of millions in my
keeping, to have marched with
ruthless stride and then to become
no more than a prostrate clown
who has been slapped: that is pain;
thai is vengeance enough for the
Certainly, I could derive no sat-
isfaction from Hitler dead. Peace
embraces him: dead at the apex
of his power he becomes enshrined,
a saint; his ghost gets the full en-
joyment of earthly immortality.
I'd rather have him live for the
time when Germans will laugh at
him and Jews (who are like that)
will bespeak merciful consideration
in his behalf.
I like to imagine a perfect end
for Hitler. He has fallen and the
new German government, after
considering this way and that as
to what to do with him, has turned
him over to the mercies of the As-
sociation of German Clowns.
Why give him to the clowns?
Well, the new German rulers have
decided that the irony of Hitler's
fate shall be made very sharp with
merry laughter; well do they know
how merciful bullets are.
All Germany laughs when a few
days later a certain decree is is-
sued: "No more Austrian paper-
hangers with dark mustaches may
hang paper on German walls. All
Austrian paperhangers with dark
mustaches must return to Austria
whence they came and only Ger-
man paperhangers with blond mus-
taches may henceforth hang wall-
paper in Germany. Dark-mus-
tached paperhangers from Austria
shall no longer be permitted to
challenge superiority of the blond
hangers of Germanj.
While Germany laughs, this in-
terdiction against dark Austrian
paperhangers falls with pain on
Hitler who, thrown from power,
i as nothing in his hands but his
old trade. If the pain of this is
severe enough, even more is the
pain of heaiing Germany's laugh-
ter, which grows to a tumult when
he protests: "Wherein has a man's
mustache to do with paper-hang-
There might be some gleam of
hope for his unfortunate position
were it not that Austria doesn't
want him either. The Austrian
. aperhangers have made represen-
tations to the Austrian chancellor
which left no doubt as to how they
felt about taking into their guild
an outsider, even though he was
born an Austrian paperhanger.
Nor is there any comfort from
the jealous paperhangers of
France, England, Holland, Spain
and Sweden; and certain none
from the paperhangers of Soviet
Russia. Hitler is left a prisoner
in Germany with no way of es-
cape; no country wants him.
Indeed, it is observed everywhere
in the world how much the plight
of Hitler has become like that of
the German Jews in former times;
and everywhere there is abdominal
laughter at the comic way of jus-
tice, which slowly but eventually
arrives with excruciating laughter;
and at the barbed wire fence of
the concentration camp in which he
is confined. Hitler stands every
day addressing Germans who pass
by: "I ask nothing of Germany
but the right to earn my living
by paper-nanging. Is it asking
: too much ? Is it just that on ac-
count of a brunette mustache I may
not hang paper?"
Only the Jews are sorry for him.
They are old, experienced suffers,
what with the burning, what with
the slaughtering, the clubbing and
the starving. Particularly do they
observe how much like their own
pain Hitler's is, and they feel com-
! passion; for he (even as they did
formerly) suffers on account of no*,
having blond hair.
What Is the astonishment all
over Germany when the Allge-
"Hitler." says this Jewish jour-
nal, "must be allowed to live, de-

spite that his heredity did not en-
dow him with a blond mustache. It
is but common decency to permit
a man to earn his bread and in de-
manding this right he asks for lit-
tle enough from Germany. Hitler
shall have his bread."
So it became a struggle in which
Hitler is pulled (as one might say)
this way and that between ..he
laughing Germans and the compas-
The pity of the Jews gives Hitler
no pleasure but only such a pain
as is even worse than the laughter
of the world laughing at him. His
meditations have to do with the
happier fate of being assassinated.
Were the opportunity to assas-
sinate Hitler in my hands, I would
put the pistol aside; I would save
, him rather for the exquisite ven-
geance of the big laugh that will
deride him when, stripped of
power, he stands naked in the
world with nothing but a swastika
