If the Jews of the United
Statis are practically of one mind
that a World Jewish Congress
should not be convened In Europe,
as is planned for this summer,
then they can very easily through
their representatives prevent the
meeting of this council which the
American Jewish Committee, the
B'nai B'rith and many other Jew-
ish organizations have consistently
The mandate has gone up from
the people5,000,000 Jewis of the
United Statesthat no congress
shall I* held, yet Rabbi Stephen S.
Wise and his American Jewish
Congress, like the father who con-
tends he knows what is better for
his children, refuses to be swayed
by those he is supposed to repre-
sent and autocratically proposes to
convoke the congress regardless.
Since 1984 the storm of opposi-
tion has not subsided and it must
he admitted by all unbiased observ-
ers of the American Jewish scene
that the people of the United
are definitely and unalter-
ably opposed to a World Congress
caucus could so easily be
trai lated by anti-Semites into the
nefarious World Jewish Council by
which the Protocols of the Elders of
/.i"ii charges Jews rule the world.
To serious Jews this objection
is important. But the real argu-
ment against the World Jewish

tence of such a group. With no

cure publicity for themselves but
untold damage, the World

And the way to stop the World
Congress proponents is
A few years ago when the bick-
ering in the national field between
ting organizations became as
able as it is today in the
fund-raising field, Jewish leaders
of the South, called together by
thai wise and level headed Atlan-
tan, Harold Hirsch, issued an ulti-
matum to national organizations
t" unite if they expected continued
upport. Jewry of the South were
' us. They meant business. If
national leaders refused to recon-
cile their surmountable differences
then the South meant to contribute
no more funds to their upkeep. As
a result the Joint Consultative
Council of the American Jewish
ingress, the American Jewish
Committee and the B'nai B'rith
In every city in the southland,
as in other sections of the nation,
tne American Jewish Congress,
headed by Rabbi Wise, is one of
national organization and fund par-
ticipates. Now if Harold Hirsch

B'oup that met at his call a few
years ago. If this group, the recog-

disappointment at the failure of
the Versailles Treaty to bring the
world Jewry the anticipated relief
from oppression and persecution is
expressed in a Passover message
to the Jews of America issued by
the American Jewish Congress
over the signatures of Dr. Stephen
S. Wise, president, and Louis
Lipsky, vice president. The mes-
sage calls upon American Jewry to
unite for organized self-help and
a vigorous defense of their rights
by rallying to the support of tne
World Jewish Congress, a session
of which is to be held at Geneva
in August, and by participating in
the National Electoral Conference
to be convened at Washington on
.June l.'l for the purpose of electing
i delegates to the World Jewish Con-
gress and instructing the American
delegation in accordance with the
[American Jewish stand on the
problems to be considered at

past decade, "when it was thought

lectual freedom would destroy the
walls of ran- prejudice and relig-
ious bigotry, "the .lews of some
countries have lost the positions
and rights aparently gained at the
end of the world war, the message
calls upon American .lews -"tu take

commenting also on the economic
discrimination against .lews prac-
tised by the Polish government and
on the difficulties now being en-
countered in Palestine because of
"a recession of a generous promise

"It therefore becomes impcia-

clares, "for the Jewish people with

An Open Letter
The Jewish Floridian,
I want to take this opportunity
of commending you on the stand
you have taken m urging our
people to register and exercise
their right of suffrage. May I, too,
add my voice towards accomplish-
ing this purpose.
Certainly it is not necessary for
me to emphasize the fact that the
Jewish people have contributed to
the progress of civilization in cul-
ture, literature, music, religion
and everything that goes to make
life better and more worth while.
Neither is it necessary for me to
stress that the Jewish people have
as their desire and motive in life
the right to live and exist, free
from persecution so that they
might pursue life, liberty and hap-
piness as other peoples. Perhaps
there are things which cause mis-
understanding on the part of
others as to our purpose, but cer-
tainly these should not be reasons
for persecutions and oppression.
The exercise of the rights,
duties and privileges of citizenship
is in itself a considerable contribu-
tion to good government. It is con-
ceded that the failure to exercise
this right is a gross lack of ap-
preciation of that government
which provides schools, safeguard
ing of health, fire and police pro-
tection and other- important func-
tions of good and proper govern-
Tin- Jewish people had' ever
been in the forefront of every
battle for that which is good in the
government of man. Jews have
always been ever ready and willing
to sacrifice their own interests so
that mankind might destroy preju-
dice and bigotry. Can one imagine
the ugly head of religious intoler-
ance cropping up among office
holders when the practical fact
must be faced by these office hold-
ers or aspirants to office that those
whom they desire to victimize and
make the targets of their bigotry
and un-Americanism are registered
and can and will exercise their
rights as citizens at the ballot
1 approach this question from
the standpoint of such great Amer-
icans as Thomas Jefferson, Wood-
row Wilson and in these days New-
ton D. Baker, who contended that
no aspirant for office at the hands
of the American people is deserv-
ing of even the lowest office if he
has not learnt the lesson of true
Americanism. the Americanism
that is undefiled and unpolluted by
intolerance towards race or creed.
It is tho privilege, nay the duty of
every American be he Jew, Catholic
or Protestant to exercise his God-
given right of suffrage irr such a
manner that none with un-Amer-
ican beliefs shall be permitted to
hold public office.
I realize that I may be criticised
by some who will accuse me of
trying to promote secret ambitions.
! Some may even suggest that I am
trying to create a Jewish political
organization, to which 1 am un-
alterably opposed. What 1 am try-

Washington, D. C. (WNS)The
constitutionality of the New York
State law enacted to curb the evil
of mushroom synagogues, is to be
decided by the United States Su-
preme Court as the result of an
appeal from an order by a three-
judge federal court in New Y'ork
by Police Commissioner I.ewis J.
Valentine and Samuel J. Foley,
district attorney of Bronx County.
The appeal grows out of the ef-
forts of the law enforcement offi-
cials to restrain Miss Sarah M.
Wachs of the Bronx from arrang-
ing free-lance Rosh Hashanah and
Yom Kippur services in violation
of the law. Last Rosh Hashanah
Federal Judge Knox granted Miss
Wachs a temporary injunction and
agreed to have the matter sub-
mitted as a constitutional issue to
a special statutory court of three
Federal judges. This court has
now ruled in Miss Wachs' favor,
but the court's decision is appeal-
able directly to the Supreme Court.
District Attorney l'oley's brief
points out that the question must
be decided quickly, since Supreme
Court adjourns in June and does
not re-convene until after the Jew-
ish holiday. The law in question,
called "Frauds on Religious Insti-
tutions." was passed in 1934 and
made it a criminal act for anyone
to profit by the sale of tickets to
purported religious services. Mr.
Foley's brief is buttressed by peti-
tions from Jewish leaders, who
haw been fighting the mushroom
synagogues for years.
irrg to do is to impress upon all
of our people, and it is natural
that 1 appeal to those who are my
very own first, that it is imperative
that Jews as such be good citizens.
That to be good citizens one must
regi-tei-; one must pay his poll
tax; above all, one must go to the
polls arrd vote not as he is ordered
to, but as his owrr conscience '
directs hitrt after a study of all the
issues and men have been intelli- |
Just one more thing: a study of j
local conditions has convinced me j
that though the Jtewish woman |
has been irr the forefront of every- |
thing in the community that savors
of charity, or communal work, yet |
these same communal-minded Jew-
ish women have been sadly amiss
in their registration, payment of
poll tax, arrd in voting.
May I conclude by once again
urgirrg you as Jews and citizens
to do your duty right now. The '
right to register will expire within '
a very short time. Don't let it be
said, "The Jews have fallen down
on their job."
(Signed) ABF. ARONOVITZ.
Organization is a dreadful word.
It has been driven to death. But
the thing for which the word
stands is a fundamental necessity.
And after two years of both ex-
tensive and intensive study of Jew.
ish life in America I offer as my
most important observation this
one: American Jewry is split up
into far too many organizations
and is in its totality wretchedly
unorganised I shall mention no
single or individual organization,
because there is none for which on
its own ground something cannot
he said; there is not one that does
not do some good; there is cer-
tainly not one that by its very ex-
istence does not contribute to the
feeling of moral solidarity among
Jews. Hence I accept them all. But
no one will deny that, in spite of
them all, Jewish life in America,
Jewish communal and concerted
effort, function badly, at haphaz-
ard and in such a way as to waste
or at least not to use enormous
resources of both moral and ma-
How many times and in how
many communities have I not
heard the following: "Now there's
Mr. K. We know he's worth a mil.
lion. He belongs to no congrega-
tion; he's not a Ben B'rith; he's
not a member of the Z. O. A. His
business has heavy Jewish patron-
age. When you come to him to ap-
pal for either the local institu-
tions or for overseas help he says
either (1) 'I don't believe in sec-
tarian charities; I give only for
general charities.' Or he says (2)
T give in my own way when I
wan. to and not upon solicitation.'
Or else he hands the solicitor five
dollars and flies into a rage when
you deprecate his niggardliness."
How can the man, to use our
common phrase, get away with it?
How can such men in such an age
succeed in their callous effrontery
and murderous self-seeking? Be-
cause there are a hundred Jewish
organizations and no visible Jew-
ish community. There is no Kahal
or Kehilla. There is a Temple and
there is a synagogue and there is
a schul. There is a men's club
and a brotherhood and a sisterhood
and a Chevra kadisha and a this
and a that and, at best, at very
best, a Jewish Community Center
or a Y. M. H. A. that functions as
such. Only there is never under
any circumstances either a com-
munity or a center or any moral
cohesion or moral authority All it
equivocal and invisible and spine-
less and totally unorganized. And
there is no group of men elected
on a democratic basis by the total
community, a visible and organized
community, that can go to the stu-

been active in the general com-

he resides. He was the first pres-

ugly scandal. The school is lost
and the romance is broken.
The situation seems desperate
until an unexpected turn of events

ing the first two years of the new
county, and later was engaged in
bookkeeping and clerical work for
a number of years.
In 1924 he was elected supervisor

charge of the county's voting books
since that time. In asking re-elec

in office and feel able from expe-
rience and training, to give the
very best of service to the voters

Emphasizing that "the defense
and reconstruction of Jewish life
cannot be undertaken from the
local point of view of each Jewish
community" and that the more
favored Jewries cannot "avoid or
evade the consequences of denial
of Jewish rights in any land," the
message concludes with an appeal
for participation in the Washing-
ton Conference to be held in June,
to the end that by a determined
stand "we shall vindicate the tra-
ditions and ideals of our ancestors,
and achieve our rightful position
among the people of the world."

which 9,388 entered as "capitalist"

The eleven-month estimate includes
persona who had entered the

opponents of a world Jewish Con-
gress. The situation arising out of
this seeming impasse is such that
will not rebound to the benefit of
the Jewish people at large. Cer-
tainly we cannot agree with the
extreme attitude of our esteemed
editor of the Spokesman that the
convening of a Jewish World Con-
gress would so affect us in the
South as to furnish our opponents
with grounds for their false ac-
cusations. We cannot condone for
even a moment these extremist at-
titudes on the part of anyone. We
do not believe, and we speak from
experience that those who attended
any conferences represented the
very rank and file of the people.
Too often have we seen men and
women assume the role of leader-
ship and attempt to speak for the
Jewish people. Too often have our
honorable and well meaning mem-
bers of the American Jewish Com-
mittee and other such national in-
stitutions presumed to speak for
all when they actually represented
a small portion of the Jewish
people. We feel that our South-
ern colleagues have no right to
threaten the withdrawal of funds,
the literal excommunication of such
men as Wise, lipsky and others
from the South. We feel that this
attitude will not be sustained by
right thinking men and women.
However before the final
decision as to the World Congress
is made, much care should be
taken in the drafting of the
Agenda of the meeting. E\cr>

to everyone so that none can be

TO THE PEOPLE
OF DADE COUNTY
You are about to employ someone to be your tax
collector. There will be several applicants. This office
is usually sought upon the basis of personal friend-
ship and political influence. This has been a common
practice and may be employed by many candidates.
However, there are certain jobs in the organization
of Government that require much more than personal
and political influence to qualify the applicant. The
office of Tax Collector is one of those positions. It
requires a man who is thoroughly versed in taxation
and in the systematic organization of the business of
collecting your tax monies properly and fairly.
1 am presenting myself to the citizenship of Dade
County for the office of Tax Collector of Dade County
upon the basis of my ability and experience in tax
matters and tax collections. As a tax consultant in
Florida for twenty years, I have represented thous-
and-; of taxpayers in their various problems, involving
Federal taxes. State taxes, City and other District
taxes. I am familiar with the ways and means to be
employed in collecting taxes. Having been a member
ol the Florida Legislature for several vears, and
serving with such men as Senators F. M. Hudson,
John P. Stokes, John W. Watson, James K. Calkins,
the late Representative G. A. Worley and Represen-
