Reproduction in whole or in part strictly forbidden. Any infringement will be prosecuted. This fall season has not been very prolific of books of Jewish interest. That fact is, upon the whole, not very surprising. Jewish books do not sell. They do not sell although, as we should never be tired of reminding ourselves, there are more Jews in America than there are people in Norway. I know the reasons. They are all bad reasons. Of course, we are Americans; we are excellent Americans. We should be infinitely better Americans if we were better and more instructed Jewa. Fiction represents an occasional and happy exception to the rule that Jewish books do not sell. The exception can be called happy for the reason that those Jewish novels that do from time to time attain a considerable circulation are not mere romances according to the crowd's reveries or wish-fulfillments, but works of the creative imagination in the higher sense. It is so again this season. With a real lifting of the heart I have seen the weekly rise in the best seller lists of the Herald-Tribune of "The Brothers Ashkenazi," by I. J. Singer (Alfred A. Knopf). Mr. Singer is, of course, the distinguished Yiddish novelist and dramatist to whom we owe "Yoshe Kalb," and since the English translation is by Maurice Samuel the book before us is easily equal to the original in texture and style. The novel is one of epic proportions and—what is far rarer —of epic sweep. It is the chronicle in terms of both psychological and social forces of the rise and decline of the city Lodz. Crowds people the foreground; intensely conceived and brilliantly embodied characters, especially the two brothers, rise from this mass. The social and economic forces that play the role of fate are projected, as they should be, in profoundly human terms. Since I quite personally am no longer satisfied with this kind of novel, magnificent as this story is of its kind, it amuses mc to be able to declare quite objectively that this translation from the Yiddish represents the soundest piece of fiction published by any American publisher this season. (Yes, I have read the others: "Sparkenbroke," "Eyeless in Gaza," etc., etc.) A more important book—not than any novel, but than this novel—is Professor Louis Finkelstein's "Akiba, Scholar, Saint and Martyr" (Covici-Friede). Sketches of Akiba's life, both in legendary and in more historical guises, have not been plentiful. This is the first thoroughgoing study based on a critical use of all the availing sources of one of the half dozen most influential figures in the entire history of the Jewish people. And it is learned, lucid, eloquent and convincing. Of the very highest importance, bleakly practical in this stupid and confused age, is Professor Finkelstein's delineation of the background of the religious, intellectual and political life of Jewry in the time of Akiba—the final definition of Pharasaism in terms of the realities, the precise meaning of the two "schools" of Hillel and Shammai, the quiet proof of the fact, long known, of course, to even cursory students, that the age of primitive Christianity far from being an age of decadent Judaism, was the age of the birth and triumph of that Jewish faith and Jewish life which have weathered all the storms of all the Christian ages and do to still—all this is of inestimable significance and preciousness, not only for the Jewish people, but for the world. A book that takes up the elucidation of Judaism from another angle is Rabbi Solomon Goldman's "The Jew and the Universe" (Harper and Brothers). Quite unpolemically but searchingly Rabbi Goldman asks for practically the first time: What ultimate truth for either the mind or the soul to rest upon have western metaphysics actually achieved? And if the answer is at best an uncertainty why should not an at least equal import be admitted to belong to that organic approach to ultimate truth which has characterized the Jewish mind in all crucial ages? In brief: Proofs for the existence of God have rarely, if ever, for instance, produced belief. The organic Jewish assumption, the vital grasping of the universe as divine has not only metaphysically but pragmatically been of the highest effectiveness. At the center of Rabbi Goldman's immensely learned and acute book stands an exhaustive and fresh study of Maimonides. Futile as the remark Is, I shall say that these two books, Professor Finkelstein's and Rabbi Goldman's, should be in the hands of every cultivated Jew and of every Christian historian, philosopher and theologian. Of a more burning and immediate importance than any of these volumes is "Jews and Arabs in Palestine," edited by Enzo Sereni and R. E. Ashery, published by the Hechalutz Press and containing contributions by the late Chaim Arlosoroff, David Ben-Gurion, Hayim Greenberg and others. To read this excellent, calm, fair and exhaustive book slowly and thoughtfully is to grasp once more B'nai B'rith Grants $100,000 Cincinnati (WNS)—Climaxing lengthy negotiations between Dr. Chaim Weizmann, Alfred M. Cohen and Dr. Israel Goldstein, the B'nai B'rith has announced a grant of $100,000 to the Jewish National Fund for the purchase in Palestine of a tract of 1,000 acres on which will be established an agricultural colony to be called "B'nai B'rith Alfred M. Cohen Nachlah," in recognition of the long service to B'nai B'rith of the organization's president. Announcement of the grant by the largest Jewish fraternal organization, which is also a non-Zionist group, was hailed as a striking evidence of the faith of B'nai B'rith in the future of the Jewish upbuilding work in Palestine. The colony will provide settlement opportunities for Jewish refugee families from Germany and other lands of oppression. Members of B'nai B'rith in the various countries where it has lodges will be given preference in the selection of the prospective settlers. In a telegram to Dr. Goldstein making public the grant, Mr. Cohen said "this; undertaking, entered into at the moment of the ending of the unfortunate happenings of the last few months in Palestine, is a token of B'nai B'rith's faith in the fulfillment of the Balfour Declaration, which gives assurance to Jews who choose Palestine as their homeland that they may dwell there and enjoy the blessings of life, chief of which is freedom of conscience." Dr. Goldstein hailed B'nai B'rith's action as "furnishing an inspiring example of faith and confidence in the Jewish future of Palestine." New York (WNS)—B'nai B'rith's grant of $100,000 for the establishment of a new colony in Palestine was acclaimed by Zionist leaders here as a step of historic importance. Dr. Stephen S. Wise, president of the Zionist Organization of America, said he rejoiced in the union of Palestine and B'nai B'rith, and added that this action "should serve as an example not only to other Jewish brotherhood organizations in America, but to other groups and bodies which should link themselves with the difficult but ultimately triumphant causes of the new Palestine." Louis Lipsky, American member of the World Zionist Executive, acclaimed the B'nai B'rith grant as "another substantial advance in the active participation of this growing fraternal order in the affairs of the Jewish National Home." the inextricable coil of nonsense that passes for even supposedly instructed opinion on any grave subject that engages the prejudices or the interests, supposed or real, of emotionally affected groups. Of especial significance is the sober and complete historical survey of the entire question contributed by Dr. Enzo Sereni. But every contribution to the volume is vital; every one is illuminating, and there is now no further excuse for American Bank Begins Business Metropolitan Miami residents made the opening of the new American Bank and Trust Company in the Safe Deposit building, 139 N. E. First St., a gala event in the business of the area Wednesday. Deposits, which ranged from a high individual account of $100,000 to a low of $50, were "satisfactory and gratifying," N. A. Rosen, chairman of the board, and Leo Robinson, president, said. The new bank is capitalized at $200,000, with $50,000 surplus, all paid in cash. Officers of the new institution are N. A. Rosen chairman of the board; Leo Robinson, president; Rufus H. Daniels, vice-president and cashier; Hyman Shapiro, vicepresident, and J. T. Carter, treasurer. The directors are N. A. Rosen, Leo Robinson, Hyman Shapiro, Dr. S. E. Chambers, G. M. Corrigan, J. M. Lipton, W. P. Mooty Henry D. Williams and H. J. Silverman. The bank will acquire the building known as the Safe Deposit building and will change its name to the American Bank building. The new bank is a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Rosen is an investment banker of New York and plans to make his permanent residence here. He has a substantial investment in the new bank. Robinson formerly was with the Mercantile National bank of Miami Beach and is active in local communal work, and Daniels has been connected with the banking business in the Miami area for more than 15 years. Rosen, in addressing the board Tuesday night, declared: "A bank, to prosper, must be based on sound economic principles, must have strength and reserve and must have the interests of its depositors at heart. "The justification for our opening is amply supported by the readiness with which the state banking department issued our charter. Examiners for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., fully agreed the necessity for additional banking facilities is urgent. "We will build on strength and soundness and confidence. The errors of past must not and will not occur again." anyone to write or speak on this crucial matter out of the depth of ignorance and confusion. Yet I cannot help remarking that the extreme tragedy of the entire Jewish world situation is symbolized by the fact that this book is not published by a general publisher in such a form as to attract at least students of history and of world affairs. Here is the one authoritative book on one of the major civilizatory problems of the age. What audience will it reach? (Copyright, 1936, by Seven Arts Feature Syndicate) Speaker to Tell Of German Trip The first of a series of cultural meetings sponsored by the Miami district of the Zionist Organization of America will be held Monday evening, November 2nd, at 8 o'clock at Beth David Talmud Torah Hall.

Boruch Habo, blessed is he who eometh in the name of the Lord, and who brinfreth his children into the realm of the Torah. The Hebrew classes will be conducted by Dr. Kaplan and Rabbi Zwitman, and if interest is shown by the parents, an added staff of able teachers will be supplied.

%  -~ r I fi> v Pare Six THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Friday, October 30, 1930 A true picture of the early American Indian and the early American pioneer is offered in "The Last of the Mohicans," colorful filmization of the immortal James Fenimore Cooper classic which begins Sunday at the Tivoli Theatre, with Randolph Scott, Binnie Barnes and Henry Wilcoxon heading a truly all-star cast. The tribal life, times and customs of the Mohegan tribe of upper New York state in the middle years of the eighteenth century are vividly and faithfully reproduced with no pity or synthetic sympathy injected. Others prominently featured in the cast are Bruce Cabot, Heather Angel, Philip Reed, Robert Barrat, Hugh Buckler and Willard Robertson. A story of mystery and romance on the Atlantic is unfolded by "The Princess Comes Across," to open Sunday at the Seventh Avenue Theatre with Carole Lombard and Fred MacMurray in the stellar roles. The picture reunites for the first time the screen sweethearts in a balanced combination of comedy, romance, song and mystery. Miss Lombard appears as a charming American girl posing at a Swedish princess, en route to New York to land a film contract. Aboard the luxury liner "Mammoth," setting for the entire plot, she meets and falls in love with MacMurray, concertina playing maestro of a "swing" band. Society (Continued from Page 5) Miami Beach.

Maker's, with a reputation for strict kashrus in this area, and Monticello, N. Y., where they have established a large following, will again provide the finest of strictly fresh killed poultry and the finest of kosher Western beef, veal and lamb, and low prices to the consumer. The vegetable and fruit department will be operated by William Weinstein, who is well known in this area, and will carry a complete line of fresh vegetables and the choicest of fruits. The market will afford the consumer the facility of purchasing everything at one time at most reasonable prices. The formal opening for the new Matter's Kosher Market will be held next Tuesday morning, November 3rd, when it will make its initial bow to the public. ... The Broadway Delicatessen and Restaifra^t fet 1425 Washington ave., Miami Beach, is now beginning its second season of service to the general public with the finest of delicatessen and meals served at reasonable prices. The firm makes a specialty of catering to fishing parties and outings without extra charges.

The sessions are being directed from Detroit by W. E. Holler, vicspresident and general sales manager. Exhaustive surveys of the market, coupled with a knowledge of the product it will offer, and the organization it will put behind that product, have led Chevrolet to project its 1937 sales as 1,200,000 units, Mr. Holler explained. The purpose of the present conventions throughout the field is to lay before the company's 10,000 dealers, 5,000 retail sales managers, and 20,000 retail salesmen the details of the program whereby it expects to achieve that end. Abraham Einhorn were the "blushing bride and happy bridegroom" again to a group of friends at Aronovitz Hall. The occasion was their silver wedding anniversary. The very impressive canopy service was performed by the Rev. Joseph Malck of the local synagogue. Mr. and Mrs. M. Holtsberg and Mr. and Mrs. F. Holtsberg attended the couple. A delicious supper was served at which Mr. Joe Pearlman acted as the genial toastmaster. Jack Einhorn, the youngest son of the couple, told his parents in a very beautifully worded speech, just how proud he was of them. Telegrams received twenty-five years ago at the wedding were read. Many beautiful gifts were received, among them being a pair of silver candlesticks from the couple's three sons, and a silver coffee and tea service from the members of the congregation.

Tale and Treatises

This fall season has not been
very prolific of books of Jewish
interest. That fact is, upon the
whole, not very surprising. Jew-
ish books do not sell. They do
not sell although, as we should
never be tired of reminding our-
selves, there are more Jews in
America than there are people in
Norway. I know the reasons.
They are all bad reasons. Of
course, we are Americans; we are
excellent Americans. We should
be infinitely better Americans if
we were better and more instruct-
ed Jewa.
Fiction represents an occasional
and happy exception to the rule
that Jewish books do not sell. The
exception can be called happy for
the reason that those Jewish nov-
els that do from time to time at-
tain a considerable circulation are
not mere romances according to
the crowd's reveries or wish-ful-
fillments, but works of the creat-
ive imagination in the higher sense.
It is so again this season. With a
real lifting of the heart I have
seen the weekly rise in the best
seller lists of the Herald-Tribune
of "The Brothers Ashkenazi," by
I. J. Singer (Alfred A. Knopf).
Mr. Singer is, of course, the dis-
tinguished Yiddish novelist and
dramatist to whom we owe "Yoshe
Kalb," and since the English
translation is by Maurice Samuel
the book before us is easily equal
to the original in texture and
style. The novel is one of epic
proportions andwhat is far rarer
of epic sweep. It is the chron-
icle in terms of both psycholog-
ical and social forces of the rise
and decline of the city Lodz.
Crowds people the foreground; in-
tensely conceived and brilliantly
embodied characters, especially the
two brothers, rise from this mass.
The social and economic forces
that play the role of fate are pro-
jected, as they should be, in pro-
foundly human terms. Since I
quite personally am no longer sat-
isfied with this kind of novel, mag-
nificent as this story is of its kind,
it amuses mc to be able to declare
quite objectively that this transla-
tion from the Yiddish represents
the soundest piece of fiction pub-
lished by any American publisher
this season. (Yes, I have read the
others: "Sparkenbroke," "Eyeless
in Gaza," etc., etc.)
A more important booknot than
any novel, but than this novelis
Professor Louis Finkelstein's "Ak-
iba, Scholar, Saint and Martyr"
(Covici-Friede). Sketches of Ak-
iba's life, both in legendary and in
more historical guises, have not
been plentiful. This is the first
thoroughgoing study based on a
critical use of all the availing
sources of one of the half dozen
most influential figures in the en-
tire history of the Jewish people.
And it is learned, lucid, eloquent
and convincing. Of the very high-
est importance, bleakly practical in
this stupid and confused age, is
Professor Finkelstein's delineation
of the background of the religious,
intellectual and political life of
Jewry in the time of Akibathe
final definition of Pharasaism in
terms of the realities, the precise
meaning of the two "schools" of
Hillel and Shammai, the quiet
proof of the fact, long known, of
course, to even cursory students,
that the age of primitive Chris-
tianity far from being an age of
decadent Judaism, was the age of
the birth and triumph of that Jew-
ish faith and Jewish life which
have weathered all the storms of
all the Christian ages and do to
stillall this is of inestimable sig-
nificance and preciousness, not
only for the Jewish people, but
for the world.
A book that takes up the eluci-
dation of Judaism from another
angle is Rabbi Solomon Goldman's
"The Jew and the Universe" (Har-
per and Brothers). Quite unpolem-
ically but searchingly Rabbi Gold-
man asks for practically the first
time: What ultimate truth for
either the mind or the soul to rest
upon have western metaphysics ac-
tually achieved? And if the an-
swer is at best an uncertainty why
should not an at least equal im-
port be admitted to belong to that
organic approach to ultimate
truth which has characterized the
Jewish mind in all crucial ages?
In brief: Proofs for the existence
of God have rarely, if ever, for
instance, produced belief. The or-
ganic Jewish assumption, the vital
grasping of the universe as divine
has not only metaphysically but
pragmatically been of the highest
effectiveness. At the center of
Rabbi Goldman's immensely learned
and acute book stands an exhaus-
tive and fresh study of Maimonides.
Futile as the remark Is, I shall
say that these two books, Profes-
sor Finkelstein's and Rabbi Gold-
man's, should be in the hands of
every cultivated Jew and of every
Christian historian, philosopher
and theologian.
Of a more burning and imme-
diate importance than any of these
volumes is "Jews and Arabs in
Palestine," edited by Enzo Sereni
and R. E. Ashery, published by the
Hechalutz Press and containing
contributions by the late Chaim
Arlosoroff, David Ben-Gurion,
Hayim Greenberg and others. To
read this excellent, calm, fair and
exhaustive book slowly and
thoughtfully is to grasp once more
B'nai B'rith
Grants $100,000
Cincinnati (WNS)Climaxing
lengthy negotiations between Dr.
Chaim Weizmann, Alfred M. Co-
hen and Dr. Israel Goldstein, the
B'nai B'rith has announced a grant
of $100,000 to the Jewish National
Fund for the purchase in Palestine
of a tract of 1,000 acres on which
will be established an agricultural
colony to be called "B'nai B'rith
Alfred M. Cohen Nachlah," in rec-
ognition of the long service to
B'nai B'rith of the organization's
president. Announcement of the
grant by the largest Jewish fra-
ternal organization, which is also
a non-Zionist group, was hailed as
a striking evidence of the faith of
B'nai B'rith in the future of the
Jewish upbuilding work in Pales-
tine. The colony will provide set-
tlement opportunities for Jewish
refugee families from Germany and
other lands of oppression. Mem-
bers of B'nai B'rith in the various
countries where it has lodges will
be given preference in the selection
of the prospective settlers.
In a telegram to Dr. Goldstein
making public the grant, Mr. Co-
hen said "this; undertaking, en-
tered into at the moment of the
ending of the unfortunate happen-
ings of the last few months in
Palestine, is a token of B'nai
B'rith's faith in the fulfillment of
the Balfour Declaration, which
gives assurance to Jews who
choose Palestine as their homeland
that they may dwell there and en-
joy the blessings of life, chief of
which is freedom of conscience."
Dr. Goldstein hailed B'nai B'rith's
action as "furnishing an inspiring
example of faith and confidence in
the Jewish future of Palestine."
New York (WNS)B'nai B'rith's
grant of $100,000 for the estab-
lishment of a new colony in Pal-
estine was acclaimed by Zionist
leaders here as a step of historic
importance. Dr. Stephen S. Wise,
president of the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, said he rejoiced
in the union of Palestine and B'nai
B'rith, and added that this action
"should serve as an example not
only to other Jewish brotherhood
organizations in America, but to
other groups and bodies which
should link themselves with the
difficult but ultimately triumphant
causes of the new Palestine." Louis
Lipsky, American member of the
World Zionist Executive, acclaimed
the B'nai B'rith grant as "another
substantial advance in the active
participation of this growing fra-
ternal order in the affairs of the
Jewish National Home."
the inextricable coil of nonsense
that passes for even supposedly in-
structed opinion on any grave sub-
ject that engages the prejudices or
the interests, supposed or real, of
emotionally affected groups. Of
especial significance is the sober
and complete historical survey of
the entire question contributed by
Dr. Enzo Sereni. But every con-
tribution to the volume is vital;
every one is illuminating, and
there is now no further excuse for
American Bank
Begins Business
Metropolitan Miami residents
made the opening of the new Amer-
ican Bank and Trust Company in
the Safe Deposit building, 139 N.
E. First St., a gala event in the
business of the area Wednesday.
Deposits, which ranged from a
high individual account of $100,000
to a low of $50, were "satisfactory
and gratifying," N. A. Rosen,
chairman of the board, and Leo
Robinson, president, said.
The new bank is capitalized at
$200,000, with $50,000 surplus, all
paid in cash.
Officers of the new institution
are N. A. Rosen chairman of the
board; Leo Robinson, president;
Rufus H. Daniels, vice-president
and cashier; Hyman Shapiro, vice-
president, and J. T. Carter, treas-
urer. The directors are N. A.
Rosen, Leo Robinson, Hyman Sha-
piro, Dr. S. E. Chambers, G. M.
Corrigan, J. M. Lipton, W. P.
Mooty Henry D. Williams and H.
J. Silverman.
The bank will acquire the build-
ing known as the Safe Deposit
building and will change its name
to the American Bank building.
The new bank is a member of
the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corp.
Rosen is an investment banker
of New York and plans to make
his permanent residence here. He
has a substantial investment in the
new bank. Robinson formerly was
with the Mercantile National bank
of Miami Beach and is active in
local communal work, and Daniels
has been connected with the bank-
ing business in the Miami area for
more than 15 years.
Rosen, in addressing the board
Tuesday night, declared: "A bank,
to prosper, must be based on sound
economic principles, must have
strength and reserve and must have
the interests of its depositors at
heart.
"The justification for our open-
ing is amply supported by the
readiness with which the state
banking department issued our
charter. Examiners for the Fed-
eral Deposit Insurance Corp., fully
agreed the necessity for additional
banking facilities is urgent.
"We will build on strength and
soundness and confidence. The er-
rors of past must not and will not
occur again."
anyone to write or speak on this
crucial matter out of the depth of
ignorance and confusion. Yet I
cannot help remarking that the ex-
treme tragedy of the entire Jewish
world situation is symbolized by
the fact that this book is not pub-
lished by a general publisher in
such a form as to attract at least
students of history and of world
affairs. Here is the one authori-
tative book on one of the major
civilizatory problems of the age.
What audience will it reach?

Bold Stroke
All is quiet on the Eastern front, comparatively speak-
ing.
We refer, of course, to the front of the Arab-Jewish
conflict in Palestine, where a moment of twilight has set in.
Every student of the Palestine problem knows, however, that
only another chapter of this stirring drama has been closed
and that others, perhaps more interesting, will follow- What
will be the next move of the parties to this chess game which
is being played on the Palestine scene since the British man-
date was implemented? This is the big question mark loom-
ing on the horizon over the Jordan.
The chapters concluded in 1921, '29 and '33. following
the Arab riots and revolts of those years, invariably led to
the inauguration of a new advance in the peaceful Jewish
reconstruction work in Palestine. The present twilight mo-
ment calls for a similar move on the part of Jewry.
This move has now been made from an unexpected quar-
ter. It was made by American Jewry's B'nai B'rith. a non-
Zionist organization, which made the magnificent and signif-
icant move of granting the amount of $100,000 to the Jewish
National Fund for the redemption of an extensive land trac
and the establishment thereon of a new colony that will ac-
commodate a considerable number of refugees from Germany.
The B'nai B'rith. which, under the leadership of Alfred
M. Cohen, occupies a u'ace of first importance in American
Jewish lift, as well as (he Jewish National Fund of America
merits the apr,auce of Jew'sh public opinion on the con-
summation of Ys project at 'his time. One cannot but hear-
ti'y concur wilh the evaluat'on put upon the event by Dr.
Stephen S. Wise, 'resident of the Zionist Organization of
America, and Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the Jewish
National Fund. th:it the $100,000 grant by B'nai B'rith and
the establishment of (he B'nai B'rith colony have a signifi-
cance for transcending the ir.-portance of merely another 'Pal-
estine co'ony. The act conveys the decision of Jewry to pro-
ceed with the upbuilding of Palestine "despite disorder, riots
and assaults."
B'nai B'rith has furnished that bold stroke which the
present twilight moment in the Palestine situation seems to
have been calling for.

HEBREW CLASSES
o----------------------------------------------o
A somewhat humble inaugura-
tion will take place this Thursday
afternoon. At 4 o'clock on that
day Temple Israel will venture into
unchartered attempts in the field
of Hebrew education.
The Hebrew classes, which will
begin on Thursday afternoon should
be. according to the dreams of the
rabbis and the visions of some of
the idealistic parents, a credit to
our Temple, and although we be-
gin without the accompaniment of
fanfare on this unheralded project,
we hope that the parents who still
think that the temple is a Bes
Hamidrosh (a house of study), will
support our rabbis and our school
board in this attempt. Boruch
Habo, blessed is he who eometh in
the name of the Lord, and who
brinfreth his children into the realm
of the Torah.
The Hebrew classes will be con-
ducted by Dr. Kaplan and Rabbi
Zwitman, and if interest is shown
by the parents, an added staff of
able teachers will be supplied. Be-
ginners' classes, modern Hebrew
and conversational classes, as well
as more advanced studies in tra-
ditional customs and liturgy, will
be conducted.
Parents are urged, begged and
invited to bring their children on
Thursday afternoon at 4 o'clock.

I HAVE made it possible for thousands to
amuse themselves legaUy, out in the open,
supervised by the state, who legalized me,
the same as the Par! Mutuels at the dog and
horse tracks.
[ HAVE always been with you, in the back-
rooms, and in those times I was often
"gaffed" by unscrupulous operators and mer-
chants, and I prefer to be in the open, with a
guarantee that I pay off not less than seventy-
five per cent to the player.
| PAY in legitimate taxes more than $350,000
through the Dade county tax collectors of-
fice.
DO NOT permit minors to play me which is
in accordance with the Atate law.
I AM owned and controlled by home-town
merchants and not racketeers.
I KEEP cash in circulation in Dade county,
none gcing out of town, and give employ-
ment to thousands of local citizens.
I COMPEL no one to play me and suggest that
only those who care for my sort of amuse-
ment give me their attention.
I AM a favored and integral part of this beau-
tiful playground and, unlike many other
amusements, the money I earn remains at
home, where we need it.
I AM placed upon the National Ballot Nov. 3rd
for the purpose of finding out whether I
shall remain duly legalized, as I want to be,
or return to the old form of backroom oper-
ation.
I ASK you to keep me legal, for your sake and
mine, and the honor of Dade county.

THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN
Friday, October 30, 1930
A true picture of the early
American Indian and the early
American pioneer is offered in
"The Last of the Mohicans," color-
ful filmization of the immortal
James Fenimore Cooper classic
which begins Sunday at the Tivoli
Theatre, with Randolph Scott, Bin-
nie Barnes and Henry Wilcoxon
heading a truly all-star cast.
The tribal life, times and cus-
toms of the Mohegan tribe of up-
per New York state in the middle
years of the eighteenth century
are vividly and faithfully repro-
duced with no pity or synthetic
sympathy injected.
Others prominently featured in
the cast are Bruce Cabot, Heather
Angel, Philip Reed, Robert Barrat,
Hugh Buckler and Willard Robert-
son.
A story of mystery and romance
on the Atlantic is unfolded by "The
Princess Comes Across," to open
Sunday at the Seventh Avenue
Theatre with Carole Lombard and
Fred MacMurray in the stellar
roles.
The picture reunites for the first
time the screen sweethearts in a
balanced combination of comedy,
romance, song and mystery.
Miss Lombard appears as a
charming American girl posing at
a Swedish princess, en route to
New York to land a film contract.
Aboard the luxury liner "Mam-
moth," setting for the entire plot,
she meets and falls in love with
MacMurray, concertina playing
maestro of a "swing" band.

Mrs. Benjamin LeVine is general
chairman in charge of arrange-
ments.

What is said to be the largest
schedule of meetings in the annals
of American industrya conven-
tion held simultaneously in 50
cities from coast to coast, with
more than 35,000 in attendance
is being held this week by the
Chevrolet Motor Co., in prepara-
tion for announcement of its new
1937 cars on November 7th.
The sessions are being directed
from Detroit by W. E. Holler, vics-
president and general sales man-
ager.
Exhaustive surveys of the mar-
ket, coupled with a knowledge of
the product it will offer, and the
organization it will put behind
that product, have led Chevrolet
to project its 1937 sales as 1,200,-
000 units, Mr. Holler explained.
The purpose of the present conven-
tions throughout the field is to lay
before the company's 10,000 deal-
ers, 5,000 retail sales managers,
and 20,000 retail salesmen the de-
tails of the program whereby it
expects to achieve that end.
Abraham Einhorn were the "blush-
ing bride and happy bridegroom"
again to a group of friends at
Aronovitz Hall. The occasion was
their silver wedding anniversary.
The very impressive canopy serv-
ice was performed by the Rev. Jo-
seph Malck of the local synagogue.
Mr. and Mrs. M. Holtsberg and Mr.
and Mrs. F. Holtsberg attended the
couple.
A delicious supper was served at
which Mr. Joe Pearlman acted as
the genial toastmaster. Jack Ein-
horn, the youngest son of the cou-
ple, told his parents in a very beau-
tifully worded speech, just how
proud he was of them. Telegrams
received twenty-five years ago at
the wedding were read. Many
beautiful gifts were received,
among them being a pair of silver
candlesticks from the couple's three
sons, and a silver coffee and tea
service from the members of the
congregation.
