Reproduction in whole or in part strictly forbidden. Any infringement will be prosecuted. "The War Goes On," the new and once more epical novel of Shalom Asch (G. P. Putnam's Sons) is already high in the list of best sellers. That list is often discouraging on account of the quality (or lack of quality) of the books that appear on it. The appearance on the list of a book like "The War Goes On" raises the entire level of contemporary literature and bears witness to the existence of a public that has both taste and vision. I want on this occasion to pay a tribute to Shalom Asch, the man and the writer. For over a decade we have been very close friends, for nearly seven years of that time we were neighbors. He read me great parts of "Three Cities" and of "Salvation" in the original as they were written—in my home, in his, on the terrace of the Cafe de la Coupole. I read him the novels and tales I was writing during those years. I learned immensely from him of the Jewish spirit, of Jewish life. He is good enough to say that he, too, learned from me in matters of technique, of art. There is something princely about Asch. I saw him first in Warsaw. A dinner was being colleagues and friends not only in given in honor of the late H. D. Nomberg. Asch towered above the stature. You felt at once in the presence of a great spirit. That feeling I never lost. One did not lose it even during his childlike artist's moods, as when, during the brief flurry of popularity that the books of all of us enjoyed in Germany in the late twenties, he said, walking with us along a lovely road in the south of France: "In Deitschland bin ich a gemachter Mann." For what was so clear was that he wanted his vision to provail rather than himself, that he was then, as he has always been, the servant of the creative act. The servant of the creative act! That is it. I have known many of my eminent contemporaries. None was so brimming with the creative wealth of the teller of tales, from none there poured in writing or in speech so rich, so overflowing a stream of human material creatively seen. He turned his handicaps into advantages because of this amazing inner wealth. Writing, after his early beginnings in Hebrew, in a hearty and homely folk-speech unadapted or not yet adapted to the highest and subtlest organization as art, he had to adopt the fluid and uncomplicated methods—straightforward, simple, unsubtle—of the folk teller of tales. By his original culture and by the character of his medium apparently forever excluded from the production of immensely complicated works of art -such as those of Wassermann or Werfel or Aldous Huxley—he has succeeded in the3e later years, without essentially altering his methods, in creating works that do not only simulate but actually represent achievements equivalent to the achievements of those novelists of richer and more complicated cultures and techniques. It is, if you like, the triumph of genius over art. He began so humbly and yet effectively with sketches of a little town. He continued along this road of the Yiddish folk-tale in "Mottke the Thief" and "The Mother." But always and even during this period he rose from time to time, without abandoning his method, mood, native content, to something like world stature, notably in "Kiddush Ha-Shem" and "The Sorceress of Castille." He did so less in those American tales, like "The Electric Chair" or "The Return of Chaim Lederer" or "The Children of Abraham." America, of which he is so intelligently fond, seemed as a scene to blight even his creative vigor. But again and again all during the years, in plays far finer and profounder than the much touted "God of Vengeance," Asch unconsciously foretold the day when he, the yishuvnik from Poland, would create works that towered into world literature—and towered so loftily precisely because their roots were sunk so unfathomably deep into a native soil of ethnic and historic culture. The author of the "Shtetle" and the author of "The War Goes On" are one and the same. No break has occurred in the continuity of Asch's development. And his three preeminent works, "Three Cities," "Salvation," "The War Goes On," are so authentic because the world vision of Shalom Asch has incorporated within itself the folk-vision of the teller of the early tales. "The War Goes On" is a work majestic in spirit in this respect, that here the most authentic, perhaps, of living Jewish novelists does justice to the terrifying miscries and misfortunes that drove the German people—that people being historically and psychologically what it is—into the raving madness of these latter years. As a historic phenomenon it is from this if not from other points of view to be ranked with that other phenomenon that the greatest of living German writers, Thomas Mann, is spending the culminating years of his creative life in writing what is probably the greatest Jewish novel of all times. Note, then, how on the highest level of h-.man life—on the level of Shalom Asch and Thomas Mann—enmities die, hysterias fade, differences are saluted and not condemned, and the spirits who represent great peoples dwell side by side in a vision of their equal worth. Let it not be thought on account %  of these higher and subtler con.--derations that "The War Goes (Continued on Page G) Are We, or Are We Not? Rather a peculiar indefinite ques. tion to propound at this time, we admit yet it is a query that is being hurled at us all the time Are we members of the Jewish community or are we not are we to be as some of our unfortunate brethren who have been taught by the dire lesson of II it lerism that to be "confessionloss" did not pay. Starting next Monday, December 7th, and lasting only four days, a campaign will be conducted by teams of the Jewish Welfare Bureau to enable fellow Jews of Greater Miami to become members of this splendid institution. One gets tired of being told "I am a Jew by heart ." That means nothing The Jew by heart may be splendid, but it is the JEW OF DEEDS THAT COUNTS. It is a splendid thing to watch the sufferings of our fellow men and women, not to talk of children, and very graciously talk of our sympathy with them "my heart goes out to these poor things" that sentiment, beautiful and noble though it may be, WILL NOT FEED THEM. It is the deed that counts like real true Jews, with a heritage of the ages to uphold 'b'nai rachmonim," sons and daugh. lers of mercy ... we must greet these committees with every courtesy and avail ourselves of the rare privilege afforded us that of alleviating the sufferings of the poor, the needy, those less fortunate than ourselves the privilege of becoming enrolled in the ranks of THE JEWISH WELFARE BUREAU. Welfare Bureau Begins Campaign The annual membership drive ef the Jewish Welfare Bureau will begin next Monday, December 7th, to last to and through Thursday, December 10th, according to an announcement by M. J. Kopelowitz and Henry Nadelweiss, co-chairmen of the campaign. A goal of five hundred members has been set and the teams will endeavor to conK tact all Jewish families of Greater ; Miami during the brief campaign. Members of the teams are Dr. Frank Coret, Sam Heiman, Dr. A. F. Friedman, Samuel Katz, R. R. Adler, Louis Zeientz, Baron de Hirsch Meyer, Joseph M. I.ipton, Joseph Williamson, I. Levin, Nathan Adelman, J. Gerald Lewis, Benjamin Le Vine, Elry Stone, Sol Rotfort, Leo Aekerman and Stanley C. Myers. Membership in the Jewish Welfare Bureau is only ten dollars per annum. In addition to the welfare work, which at this time is being increased because of the many transients coming here, the organization also operates a free loan bureau to assist deserving cases to become established in business. Zionists to Hold National Council Gala Meeting Issues Warning The (monthly cultural meeting of the local Zionist District will be held at Beth David Talmud Torah Hall Monday evening, December 7th, at 8 p. m., with Rabbi Max Shapiro, president of the Greater Miami Zionist District in charge. Mr. Isidor Cohen, pioneer Miami Jew, will be chairman of the cultural part of the evening. Speakers of the evening will be Mr. Harry Simonhoff, former president of the Zionist District and prominent Zionist worker who will speak on "Zionism and Justice Louis D. Brandeis." Sergeant Ed Melchen, detective sergeant o'f the Miami Police Department, who recently returned from a trip through Germany, will speak on "An Impartial Observer's Views on Nazi Germany." A group of Jewish folk songs will be sung by Rosemary Gerson. Following the formal program elections for the Board of Directors of the local district will be held. The public is urged to attend. Furor Caused By Prize Award The furor aroused in Germany by the Nobel Committee's award of the Peace Prize for 1035 to Carl von Ossietzky of that country is quite understandable. Since 1933 Adolf Hitler has maintained that the burden of his messages and manoevres is peace. And still the Nobel Committee, meeting at Oslo, Norway, decided in favor of a German citizen humbler in rank than the Chancellor of the Third Reich —a citizen whose home for these past four years has been the equiv! alent of a jail under "protective" custoidy, where this German qournalist has contracted a tubercular condition. Ossietzky's money prize is $39,303. If Germany imposed no restrictions on hi mhe could go to Oslo to receive the award and collect this rather sizeable sum, and then settle somewhere to reg/ain his health. After that he could de. vote his money to an underground campaign against the Nazi regime. That course of action is not in line with Ossietzky's convictions. He believes in fighting it out in Germany, among the people over whose future he is greatly concerned. He considers any blasts at Germany from some foreign retreat as futile. As Ossietzky himself put it: "A man speaks with a hollow voice from across the border." NEW YORK (WNS)—A plea to the Royal Commission, now investigating the causes of the recent Palestine disturbances, to embody in its findings "the purpose and the vision which animated the issuance of the Balfour Declaration," was expressed in a resolution voicing the attitude of American Jewry toward the future of Palestine, which was adopted by the National Council for Palestine, composed of representatives of communities throughout the United States. Meeting in special session to consider the new conditions created by the disturbances and to adopt a program of reconstruction work for 1037, the Council, which has the responsibility of raising funds for the United Palestine Appeal, made it clear that "the Jews of America have a stake in Palestine, not merely because of the sentimental attachment of tradition, not merely because of the huge resources of wealth and energy that have been forthcoming from this country for the restoration of a desolate land, but because of the international legal status under which Great Britain holds the j Mandate for Palestine, governed I not only by the League of Nations l but in consonance with a special convention between the United States and Great Britain." Nathan Straus, national treasurer of the United Palestine Appeal, reported that "more money was raised in America in 1936 for Palestine upbuilding activities than in any year since 1928," the sum of $1,000,000 in cash having been forwarded to Palestine. This, he said, is equal to the amount made available for overseas Jewish purposes during 1936 by any other American Jewish organization, excluding none." Mr. Straus also re. ported that as of November 20, 1936, the United Palestine had raised $1,872,500, arrived at as follows: $1,552,000 from individual contributions to the United Palestine Appeal and from welfare funds; $203,500 through the Jewish .National Fund; and $113,425 by Hadassah for Youth Aliyah. New French Law to Enable Jews to Curb Anti-Semitic Libel PARIS (WNS)—The new criminal libel law which the French government will push through Parliament has a clause which will enable individual Jews to sue antiSemites who libel Jews as a race or a religion. Designed to prevent a repetition of the libelous campaign which drove Minister of the Interior Roger Salengro to suicide, the law provides that any member Workmen's Circle To Celebrate A banquet is being sponsored by the Workmen's Circle of Miami in celebration of the tenth anniversary of its existence. It will take place at Goldberg & Green's Biscayne Collins Hotel, Collins ave. and Itiscayne St., Miami Beach, on Sunday, December 6th, at 7 p. m. An attractive variety of entertainment has been arranged. Out-of-town members and friends are cordially invited. Reservations may be made with the hotel management. of a racial, religious or political Kioup can sue a libeler who deI fames the whole group. This portion of the law is expected to be : of great value in curbing anti-Jow, ish agitation in France.

SUBSCRIPTION FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1936 Vol. 9—No. 49 MIAMI NOTES By HARRY SCHWARTZ Honest Men Are Unafraid We have yet lo meet an honest man who was afraid to tell the truth particularly so in a business that catered to the general public. What would you think of a grocer who refused to answer a simple inquiry as to the quality of the merchandise he was offering for sale? What would your reaction be, in response to a question "How old are those eggs?" the grocer would reply, "I will onlv answer to a dulv appointed Heard of Health." Several weeks ago because of a demand on the part of the general buying public we addressed a questionnaire to every "Kosher butcher" in the Greater Miami area. The Kosher butcher was asked certain rather pertinent questions which would tend to convey information to the inquirer as to whether or not the butcher feared verification of statements that his wares were really kosher. The great majority of the butchers replied immediately. At least this prompt reply conveyed the thought that they did not fear an investigation. One rather "smart alecky" butcher replied "I will answer only to a Rabbi or a Vaad Hakashruth." Several butchers did not even reply. Once again we suggest that the public, the Jewish buying public, which has never hesitated to pay for value received, is entitled to receive information. If you, M!r. Kosher Butcher, are not deceiving the public you have nothing to fear. Your business is such that your books, your records, everything that will tend to tell the public the real facts should be available to the general public. Perhaps some of these butchers are conducting that system of double bookkeeping which was employed for but a short time with success to hide the true character of the merchandise which was sold, but which the Jewish Floridian several years ago had the pleasure of ferreting out and bringing to the attention of the public. We feel that everyone is entitled to a fair opportunity to reply. In out next week's issue we shall deem it our duty to publish the names of those kosher butchers who replied and those butchers who did not reply for reasons which we can only surmise. We sincerely hope that all butchers in the Greater Miami area will reply by next week. Certainly we hope that none of them have facts to hide. The greatest of all "Y" functions yet held will be this year's fifth annual ball. The entertainment chairman, Arthur Blatt, has seen to it that this year's presentation will outshine any previous affair in this area. Something new and novel will be offered the public in that two outstanding orchestras in Metropolitan Miami have been contracted to play for the "Y" on the night of j Sunday, December 20th, at the I Civic Center ballroom. These two orchestras, plus a complete and spectacular floor show, and you have a treat that will be long remembered.

All were accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Hanna Spiro Asher. Ruth Wolkowsky played a number of piano selections during the evening. Dr. Frank Coret on behalf of a delegation from Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith which Mr. Levin has headed for the past several years, introduced Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan, who presented Mr. and Mis.

Among those who called dur.. ing the evening were Rabbi Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan and Rabbi Column Zwitman of Temple Israel, Rabbi Max Shapiro of Beth David Synagogue, Rabbi Abraham A. Kellner of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, and representatives of every Jewish organization in the entire Greater Miami area. The couple were the recipients of many beautiful gifts.

Mrs. Jacobs, after her arrival in this area soon earned the respect and love of the community because of her quiet and unassuming manner and the many deeds of charity and helpfulness she quietly engaged in. Many local charitable affairs were the recipients of beautiful and costly cakes and other gifts sent by "Ma" Jacobs as she was affectionately called by many, to enable the organizations to help raise funds. Funeral services were held la?t Monday morning at the Niceley Funeral Home, Miami Beach, with Kabbi Max Shapiro officiating. Rabbi Louis Gross of Brooklyn, N. Y., a close friend of the family for many years, delivered a eulogy, and Cantor Boris Schlachmnn chanted the "Kid Molay Rachmim."

THE WORLDS WINDOW
SHALOM ASCH
By LUDWIG LEWISOHN
This column is copyrighted by
the Seven Arts Feature Syndi-
cate. Reproduction in whole or
in part strictly forbidden. Any
infringement will be prosecuted.
"The War Goes On," the new
and once more epical novel of Sha-
lom Asch (G. P. Putnam's Sons)
is already high in the list of best
sellers. That list is often discour-
aging on account of the quality (or
lack of quality) of the books that
appear on it. The appearance on
the list of a book like "The War
Goes On" raises the entire level of
contemporary literature and bears
witness to the existence of a public
that has both taste and vision.
I want on this occasion to pay
a tribute to Shalom Asch, the man
and the writer. For over a decade
we have been very close friends,
for nearly seven years of that time
we were neighbors. He read me
great parts of "Three Cities" and
of "Salvation" in the original as
they were writtenin my home, in
his, on the terrace of the Cafe de
la Coupole. I read him the novels
and tales I was writing during
those years. I learned immensely
from him of the Jewish spirit, of
Jewish life. He is good enough to
say that he, too, learned from me
in matters of technique, of art.
There is something princely
about Asch. I saw him first in
Warsaw. A dinner was being
colleagues and friends not only in
given in honor of the late H. D.
Nomberg. Asch towered above the
stature. You felt at once in the
presence of a great spirit. That
feeling I never lost. One did not
lose it even during his childlike art-
ist's moods, as when, during the
brief flurry of popularity that the
books of all of us enjoyed in Ger-
many in the late twenties, he said,
walking with us along a lovely
road in the south of France: "In
Deitschland bin ich a gemachter
Mann." For what was so clear was
that he wanted his vision to pro-
vail rather than himself, that he
was then, as he has always been,
the servant of the creative act.
The servant of the creative act!
That is it. I have known many of
my eminent contemporaries. None
was so brimming with the creative
wealth of the teller of tales, from
none there poured in writing or
in speech so rich, so overflowing a
stream of human material crea-
tively seen. He turned his handi-
caps into advantages because of
this amazing inner wealth. Writ-
ing, after his early beginnings in
Hebrew, in a hearty and homely
folk-speech unadapted or not yet
adapted to the highest and subtlest
organization as art, he had to adopt
the fluid and uncomplicated meth-
odsstraightforward, simple, un-
subtleof the folk teller of tales.
By his original culture and by the
character of his medium apparent-
ly forever excluded from the pro-
duction of immensely complicated
works of art -such as those of
Wassermann or Werfel or Aldous
Huxleyhe has succeeded in the3e
later years, without essentially al-
tering his methods, in creating
works that do not only simulate
but actually represent achieve-
ments equivalent to the achieve-
ments of those novelists of richer
and more complicated cultures and
techniques. It is, if you like, the
triumph of genius over art.
He began so humbly and yet ef-
fectively with sketches of a little
town. He continued along this road
of the Yiddish folk-tale in "Mottke
the Thief" and "The Mother."
But always and even during this
period he rose from time to time,
without abandoning his method,
mood, native content, to something
like world stature, notably in "Kid-
dush Ha-Shem" and "The Sorcer-
ess of Castille." He did so less
in those American tales, like "The
Electric Chair" or "The Return of
Chaim Lederer" or "The Children
of Abraham." America, of which
he is so intelligently fond, seemed
as a scene to blight even his crea-
tive vigor. But again and again
all during the years, in plays far
finer and profounder than the much
touted "God of Vengeance," Asch
unconsciously foretold the day
when he, the yishuvnik from Po-
land, would create works that tow-
ered into world literatureand
towered so loftily precisely because
their roots were sunk so unfath-
omably deep into a native soil of
ethnic and historic culture. The
author of the "Shtetle" and the
author of "The War Goes On" are
one and the same. No break has
occurred in the continuity of Asch's
development. And his three pre-
eminent works, "Three Cities,"
"Salvation," "The War Goes On,"
are so authentic because the world
vision of Shalom Asch has incor-
porated within itself the folk-vision
of the teller of the early tales.
"The War Goes On" is a work
majestic in spirit in this respect,
that here the most authentic, per-
haps, of living Jewish novelists
does justice to the terrifying mis-
cries and misfortunes that drove
the German peoplethat people
being historically and psychologic-
ally what it isinto the raving
madness of these latter years. As
a historic phenomenon it is from
this if not from other points of
view to be ranked with that other
phenomenon that the greatest of
living German writers, Thomas
Mann, is spending the culminating
years of his creative life in writ-
ing what is probably the greatest
Jewish novel of all times. Note,
then, how on the highest level of
h-.man lifeon the level of Shalom
Asch and Thomas Mannenmities
die, hysterias fade, differences are
saluted and not condemned, and
the spirits who represent great
peoples dwell side by side in a
vision of their equal worth.
Let it not be thought on account
of these higher and subtler con-
.--derations that "The War Goes
(Continued on Page G)
Are We, or
Are We Not?
Rather a peculiar indefinite ques.
tion to propound at this time, we
admit yet it is a query that is
being hurled at us all the time .
Are we members of the Jewish
community or are we not are
we to be as some of our unfortu-
nate brethren who have been
taught by the dire lesson of II it -
lerism that to be "confessionloss"
did not pay.
Starting next Monday, December
7th, and lasting only four days, a
campaign will be conducted by
teams of the Jewish Welfare Bu-
reau to enable fellow Jews of
Greater Miami to become members
of this splendid institution. One
gets tired of being told "I am a
Jew by heart ." That means
nothing The Jew by heart may
be splendid, but it is the JEW OF
DEEDS THAT COUNTS. It is a
splendid thing to watch the suf-
ferings of our fellow men and
women, not to talk of children, and
very graciously talk of our sym-
pathy with them "my heart
goes out to these poor things" .
that sentiment, beautiful and noble
though it may be, WILL NOT
FEED THEM.
It is the deed that counts .
like real true Jews, with a her-
itage of the ages to uphold .
'b'nai rachmonim," sons and daugh.
lers of mercy ... we must greet
these committees with every cour-
tesy and avail ourselves of the
rare privilege afforded us that
of alleviating the sufferings of the
poor, the needy, those less fortu-
nate than ourselves the privi-
lege of becoming enrolled in the
ranks of THE JEWISH WELFARE
BUREAU.
Welfare Bureau
Begins Campaign
The annual membership drive ef
the Jewish Welfare Bureau will be-
gin next Monday, December 7th, to
last to and through Thursday, De-
cember 10th, according to an an-
nouncement by M. J. Kopelowitz
and Henry Nadelweiss, co-chair-
men of the campaign. A goal of
five hundred members has been set
and the teams will endeavor to con-
k tact all Jewish families of Greater
; Miami during the brief campaign.
Members of the teams are Dr.
Frank Coret, Sam Heiman, Dr. A.
F. Friedman, Samuel Katz, R. R.
Adler, Louis Zeientz, Baron de
Hirsch Meyer, Joseph M. I.ipton,
Joseph Williamson, I. Levin, Na-
than Adelman, J. Gerald Lewis,
Benjamin Le Vine, Elry Stone, Sol
Rotfort, Leo Aekerman and Stan-
ley C. Myers. Membership in the
Jewish Welfare Bureau is only ten
dollars per annum. In addition to
the welfare work, which at this
time is being increased because of
the many transients coming here,
the organization also operates a
free loan bureau to assist deserv-
ing cases to become established in
business.
Zionists to Hold National Council
Gala Meeting Issues Warning
The (monthly cultural meeting
of the local Zionist District will
be held at Beth David Talmud
Torah Hall Monday evening, De-
cember 7th, at 8 p. m., with Rabbi
Max Shapiro, president of the
Greater Miami Zionist District in
charge. Mr. Isidor Cohen, pioneer
Miami Jew, will be chairman of
the cultural part of the evening.
Speakers of the evening will be Mr.
Harry Simonhoff, former president
of the Zionist District and promi-
nent Zionist worker who will speak
on "Zionism and Justice Louis D.
Brandeis." Sergeant Ed Melchen,
detective sergeant o'f the Miami
Police Department, who recently
returned from a trip through Ger-
many, will speak on "An Impartial
Observer's Views on Nazi Ger-
many." A group of Jewish folk
songs will be sung by Rosemary
Gerson. Following the formal pro-
gram elections for the Board of
Directors of the local district will
be held. The public is urged to
attend.
Furor Caused
By Prize Award
The furor aroused in Germany
by the Nobel Committee's award
of the Peace Prize for 1035 to Carl
von Ossietzky of that country is
quite understandable. Since 1933
Adolf Hitler has maintained that
the burden of his messages and
manoevres is peace. And still the
Nobel Committee, meeting at Oslo,
Norway, decided in favor of a Ger-
man citizen humbler in rank than
the Chancellor of the Third Reich
a citizen whose home for these
past four years has been the equiv-
! alent of a jail under "protective"
custoidy, where this German qour-
nalist has contracted a tubercular
condition.
Ossietzky's money prize is $39,-
303. If Germany imposed no re-
strictions on hi mhe could go to
Oslo to receive the award and col-
lect this rather sizeable sum, and
then settle somewhere to reg/ain
his health. After that he could de.
vote his money to an underground
campaign against the Nazi regime.
That course of action is not in
line with Ossietzky's convictions.
He believes in fighting it out in
Germany, among the people over
whose future he is greatly con-
cerned. He considers any blasts
at Germany from some foreign re-
treat as futile. As Ossietzky him-
self put it: "A man speaks with a
hollow voice from across the bor-
der."
NEW YORK (WNS)A plea to
the Royal Commission, now in-
vestigating the causes of the re-
cent Palestine disturbances, to em-
body in its findings "the purpose
and the vision which animated the
issuance of the Balfour Declara-
tion," was expressed in a resolu-
tion voicing the attitude of Amer-
ican Jewry toward the future of
Palestine, which was adopted by
the National Council for Palestine,
composed of representatives of
communities throughout the United
States. Meeting in special session
to consider the new conditions
created by the disturbances and
to adopt a program of reconstruc-
tion work for 1037, the Council,
which has the responsibility of rais-
ing funds for the United Palestine
Appeal, made it clear that "the
Jews of America have a stake in
Palestine, not merely because of
the sentimental attachment of tra-
dition, not merely because of the
huge resources of wealth and en-
ergy that have been forthcoming
from this country for the restora-
tion of a desolate land, but because
of the international legal status
under which Great Britain holds the
j Mandate for Palestine, governed
I not only by the League of Nations
l but in consonance with a special
convention between the United
States and Great Britain."
Nathan Straus, national treas-
urer of the United Palestine Ap-
peal, reported that "more money
was raised in America in 1936 for
Palestine upbuilding activities than
in any year since 1928," the sum
of $1,000,000 in cash having been
forwarded to Palestine. This, he
said, is equal to the amount made
available for overseas Jewish pur-
poses during 1936 by any other
American Jewish organization, ex-
cluding none." Mr. Straus also re.
ported that as of November 20,
1936, the United Palestine had
raised $1,872,500, arrived at as fol-
lows: $1,552,000 from individual
contributions to the United Pales-
tine Appeal and from welfare
funds; $203,500 through the Jew-
ish .National Fund; and $113,425 by
Hadassah for Youth Aliyah.
New French Law to Enable Jews

enable individual Jews to sue anti-

or a religion. Designed to prevent

NOTES
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
Honest Men Are Unafraid
We have yet lo meet an honest man who was afraid to
tell the truth particularly so in a business that catered
to the general public.
What would you think of a grocer who refused to answer
a simple inquiry as to the quality of the merchandise he was
offering for sale? What would your reaction be, in response
to a question "How old are those eggs?" the grocer would
reply, "I will onlv answer to a dulv appointed Heard of
Health."
Several weeks ago because of a demand on the part of
the general buying public we addressed a questionnaire to
every "Kosher butcher" in the Greater Miami area. The
Kosher butcher was asked certain rather pertinent questions
which would tend to convey information to the inquirer as
to whether or not the butcher feared verification of state-
ments that his wares were really kosher.
The great majority of the butchers replied immediately.
At least this prompt reply conveyed the thought that they
did not fear an investigation. One rather "smart alecky"
butcher replied "I will answer only to a Rabbi or a Vaad
Hakashruth." Several butchers did not even reply.
Once again we suggest that the public, the Jewish buying
public, which has never hesitated to pay for value received,
is entitled to receive information. If you, M!r. Kosher
Butcher, are not deceiving the public you have nothing to
fear. Your business is such that your books, your records,
everything that will tend to tell the public the real facts
should be available to the general public. Perhaps some of
these butchers are conducting that system of double book-
keeping which was employed for but a short time with success
to hide the true character of the merchandise which was sold,
but which the Jewish Floridian several years ago had the
pleasure of ferreting out and bringing to the attention of
the public.
We feel that everyone is entitled to a fair opportunity to
reply. In out next week's issue we shall deem it our duty
to publish the names of those kosher butchers who replied
and those butchers who did not reply for reasons which we
can only surmise.
We sincerely hope that all butchers in the Greater Miami
area will reply by next week. Certainly we hope that none
of them have facts to hide.
The greatest of all "Y" functions
yet held will be this year's fifth
annual ball. The entertainment
chairman, Arthur Blatt, has seen
to it that this
year's presenta-
tion will outshine
any previous af-
fair in this area.
Something new
and novel will be
offered the public
in that two out-
standing orchestras in Metropoli-
tan Miami have been contracted to
play for the "Y" on the night of
j Sunday, December 20th, at the
I Civic Center ballroom. These two
orchestras, plus a complete and
' spectacular floor show, and you

Celebrating their twenty-fifth
wedding anniversary, Mr. and Mrs.
Isaac Levin, prominent in the com-
munal life of this area in both
Jewish and non-Jewish affairs,
greeted an unusually large numb?r
of guests at an open house and re-
ception in their home last Sunday
evening. Rabbi Dr. Jacob H. Kap-
lan performed the wedding cere-
mony in observance of the event
with the couple standing in the
midst of a bower of flowers, with
the wedding march being played
at the piano by Hannah Spiro
Asher. Following the ceremony a
musical program was presented.
Kabbi Colman Zwitman of Temple
Israel was heard in a group of
Jewish folk songs and several other
vocal selections; Evelyn Raff sang
a number of songs as did Mrs.
Larry Fay. All were accompanied
at the piano by Mrs. Hanna Spiro
Asher. Ruth Wolkowsky played a
number of piano selections during
the evening. Dr. Frank Coret on
behalf of a delegation from Sholem
Lodge of B'nai B'rith which Mr.
Levin has headed for the past sev-
eral years, introduced Dr. Jacob H.
Kaplan, who presented Mr. and
Mis. Isaac Levin with a sterling
silver service from the B'nai B'rith
Lodge as a token of the esteem in
which they both were held by the
entire membership of the organiza-
tion. Among those who called dur..
ing the evening were Rabbi Dr.
Jacob H. Kaplan and Rabbi Col-
umn Zwitman of Temple Israel,
Rabbi Max Shapiro of Beth David
Synagogue, Rabbi Abraham A.
Kellner of the Miami Jewish Ortho-
dox Congregation, and representa-
tives of every Jewish organization
in the entire Greater Miami area.
The couple were the recipients of
many beautiful gifts. A number
of close friends of the family as-
sisted in receiving during the eve-
ning.

Coming as a shock to the Jew-
Ish communities of Greater Miami
was the death last Saturday at the !
Victoria hospital of Mrs. Rose A'.c-
man Jacobs of the New Alamac
Hotel, Miami Beach, after an ill-
ness of several months.
Mrs. Jacobs was a native of
Szerenge, Hungary, where she re-
ceived her early religious and secu-
lar education, being a member of
the famous Altman family of that
city. She came to America forty-
five years ago at the age of 18.
Several years later she met and
married Samuel Jacobs and last
week marked the forty-second an-
niversary of their marriage. To-
gether with her husband and family
she operated the Edgemcre House
and then the Alamac Hotel at Lake
Hopatcong, X. J. She came to
Miami with her family in Decem-
ber, 1925, and was the first to
operate a kosher market at 3rd st.
and Collins ave., Miami Beach. In
1928 together with her family she
acquired the Biscayne Collins Hotel
which became the first American
plan kosher hotel in this area, and
marked the opening with a New
Year's eve dinner for the Men's
Club of Miami. In 1929 the family
acquired the Old Alamac Hotel at
13th and Collins ave., which they
operated for five years and two
years ago acquired the present New
Alamac Hotel at 13th and Collins
ave., Miami Beach.
Mrs. Jacobs, after her arrival in
this area soon earned the respect
and love of the community because
of her quiet and unassuming man-
ner and the many deeds of charity
and helpfulness she quietly en-
gaged in. Many local charitable
affairs were the recipients of beau-
tiful and costly cakes and other
gifts sent by "Ma" Jacobs as she
was affectionately called by many,
to enable the organizations to help
raise funds.
Funeral services were held la?t
Monday morning at the Niceley
Funeral Home, Miami Beach, with
Kabbi Max Shapiro officiating.
Rabbi Louis Gross of Brooklyn, N.
Y., a close friend of the family
for many years, delivered a eulogy,
and Cantor Boris Schlachmnn
chanted the "Kid Molay Rachmim."
Final commitment services were
held in the Greater Miami Jewish
Cemetery Association section of
the Woodlawn Cemetery with Rab-
bi Shapiro in charge. Active pall
bearers were Messrs. I/0o Robin-
son, Lee Goodis, Dr. Ben Margolis.
Philip Romer, Ben Fleeman and
Sol. S. Goldstrom.
Mrs. Jacobs left surviving he:-,
the husband Samuel Jacobs, five
sons, Albert, Walter, Morris, Mil-
ton and Robert, and two daugh-
ters, Mrs. Florence Knapper and
Mrs. Lucille Schoenbrun. Morris
and Robert are engaged in the res-
taurant business in New York and
the rest of the family are asso-
ciated in the Family Jacobs Ala-
mac Hotel in Miami Beach.

ed by its Sisterhood is sponsoring
