Y. M. H. A. Holds Frankfurter Gets Gov Lehman Tel Aviv
Annual Dance Sard Labor Urges Faith Has Fire
The fifth annual dance spon-
sored by the Young Men's Hebrew
Association of Greater Miami will
be held at the Cinderella Ballroom
this coming Sunday evening, De-
cember 20th, beginning at 9 o'clock.
Star entertainers now in the vari-
ous night cubs of this area will be
presented during the evening for
the entertainment of the guests.
Two orchestras will provide the
music for dancing throughout the
entire evening. This dance is being
held for the benefit of the Y
building fund to raise sufficient
funds so that a lot may be pur-
chased and actual construction of
a building begun within a very
short time. In a statement issued
by Mr. E. Albert Pallot, general
chairman of the dance committee,
just before going to press, he said,
"The Y is indeed grateful to the
entire Jewish and non-Jewish com-
munity of Greater Miami for the
splendid cooperation shown us in
the past several months. Marked
has been the help given us by the
large number of Jewish bodies,
Rabbis and lay leaders who have
realized that the Y is working not
for themselves alone but to try to
establish a real "haven of refuge"
for the Jewish youth of this com-
munity. Inexperienced though the
leadership of the Y has been, it
has always been imbued with the
one thought that its own private
desires must be forgotten in the
greater necessity of providing not
only a meeting place for its own
members, but a gathering place
for the Jewish youth of Greater
Miami. It is for that reason that
our committee has been gratified
by the help extended us by all of
our citizens. With this thought in
mind I want to extend a cordial
invitation to the entire community
of Greater Miami to attend our
fifth annual Ball next Sunday
night at the Civic Center Ball-
room (Cinderela Ballroom) so that
our goal of building a home for
the Jewish youth may the sooner
be realized. The Y building can
be made a reality if all of us work
together." The committee of ar-
rangements consist of E. A. Pallot,
general chairman; Milton A. Fried-
man and Harry Schwartz, program [
chairman; Nat Blumberg, ticket
chairman; entertainment chairman,
Arthur Blatt; reception chairman,
Al. Rosenfeld; publicity chairman,
Louis Safanowitz; secretary, Man-
ny Tietler; treasurer, Harry Blu-
min. Tickets for this event may
be purchased from any member
of the committee or at the box
office of the ballroom the niglit

CHUR, Switzerland (WNS)
Eighteen years at hard labor in
the Canton of Grisons was the sen-
tence imposed on David Frank-
furter, 27-year-old Jewish medical
student from Yugoslavia, by the
five-man court which found him
guilty of the murder of Wilhelm
Gustloff, Swiss Nazi leader, who
was shot at Davos on February 4,
1936. The verdict brought to a
close the sensational trial which
began on December 9th and ended
on December 12th. The court's de-
cision also ordered Frankfurter to
pay the costs of the trial, to com-
pensate Frau Gustloff for the
damages suffered through the
death of her husband, and to be
expelled forever from Switzerland
upon the completion of his sen-
tence. He was given credit for the
eight months he has spent in prison
>'ince his arrest.
The verdict, which was not a
surprise, was exactly what the
state prosecutor, Dr. Friedrich
Bruegger, had demanded both in
his opening address to the court
and in his summation. It did not,
however, please the Nazis either
here or in Germany, who have in-
sisted that only the death penalty
could atone for Gustloff's death.
There is no capital punishment in
Switzerland, the maximum sen-
tence for murder being life im-
prisonment. It is expected that
Frankfurter's counsel, Eugene
Curti, will appeal the verdict to a
higher court.
Shortly before black bearded
Presiding Justice Antoine Gan-
zoni announced the verdict in sol-
emn tones, the court was stirred
by a rumor that a fanatic Nazi
had made an attempt on the life
New York (WNS)Calling upon
American Jewry to take the lead
in reviving faith in God, Governor
Herbert H. Lehman, in an address
at a dinner held in celebration of
the 90th anniversary of the Cen-
tral Synagogue, emphasized that
renewed faith, together with the
scientific progress of our age,
would bring about "a solidarity in
human society expressed in terms
of universal justice and peace."
Stressing the fact that "our ad-
vance in every sphere of altruistic
endeavor is stimulated by the fin-
est teachings of religion," the gov-
ernor declared that "the synagogue
| stands forth as a living witness
i proclaiming the irresistible power
I of truth over error, of justice over
wrong doing, of light over dark-
ness. The synagogue is concerned
not merely with prayer and praise,
- but with the promotion of peace
and the establishment of justice;
! deed, not creed, is the object of the
synagogue.
of Frankfurter. Investigation re-
vealed that the reported attempt
had been made on the opening day
of the trial, while the accused was
being taken from his cell to the
court-room.
As soon as news of the verdict
spread many supporters of Frank-
furter gave vent to open criticism
of the tactics of the defense coun-
sel. They said that in view of the
obvious public sympathy for
Frankfurter in Switzerland the
lawyer should have made his case
an outright appeal for acquittal.
It was felt that Curti had under-
played the revenge motive and had
not sufficiently emphasized the po-
litical implications of the case.
TEL AVIV (WNS-Palcor Ag-
ency)While the Tel Aviv Mu-
nicipal Council by a vote of eight
to seven voted to remove Mayor
Israel Rokach from two of his
most important committee offices,
the meeting was interrupted by an
alarm of fire from the Tel Aviv
water front. By its action, the ma-
I jority of the Council, which has
sought to remove the mayor ever
since he was appointed by High
Commissioner Wauchope following
the selection of another candidate,
removed Dr. Rokach from the
chairmanship of the Tenders' Com-
mittee and from his representation
of Tel Aviv on the Vaad Leumi
Education Council, both being posi-
. tions he previously held.
It was during the discussion of
the mayor's removal from his posi-
tion on the harbor council that the
meeting was interrupted by the
alarm of fire. The fire had started
among lighters anchored in the
Yarkon river and spread quickly
to the wooden fence around the
liaccabi stadium and the wooden
Histadruth pavilion on the Levant
fair grounds. The troops who
guarded the fair grounds assisted
the fire brigade in preventing the
fire from spreading to the cus-
toms house.
The damage was estimated at
only $5,000 but the incident was
seen as an attempt to arson the
jetty, the all-Jewish city's greatest
source of pride. The news of the
fire caused tension throughout the
city, the people fearing that the
jetty had been set to flames. How.
ever, the loading piers were un-
harmed.
The World's

A Word on Law
London (WNS)No more Ger-
man-Jewish refugees will be sent
to South Africa by any of the Jew-
ish refugee aid bodies because of
the violent anti-Jewish campaign i
now raging there, it is reported in |
usually authoritative Jewish quar- j
ters here. On November 1st new
immigration restrictions became ef-
fective m South Africa, but they
did not completely cut off the en-
try of Jewish refugees.
The Public and Questionnaires
The Jewish Kloridian, a public institution, ha; been recognised as a factor in the upbuilding of
the entire Jewish community. It has led in a num >er of endeavors as a result of which certain ills
have been corrected and much good accomplished. Wc may have been accused of everything, but
never of fear.
We have from time to time exposed instances of Ireifah meats being sold for kosher, and we
shall not hesitate to do so if the occasion arises. We have organized within recent days a union of
"shochtim" so thai these men, a vital factor in th religious life of any Jewish community, may
obtain a living wage. Of course, some of our but -hers don't like this. Vet to the credit of the vast
majority of the local butchers let it be known thii they have co-operated and realized that even
11 >.-Ill in must live.
Why questionnaires? This question has bee i hurled and bandied about in the past week. Why
not Vaad Ilakashruth? We just wonder whethr it might interest the Jewish people, and partic-
ularly those who were members of the kashrus committee in Miami Beach within the past two years
as to the following facts: Everyone remembers the story of "The Lost Lamb." Ss^t was brought
by this butcher alleging that they had been foolei. They really thought this unmarked lamb was
kosher. What do you think the defense of the wholesale beef packers is? A rather astonishing but
yet simple one. That the butcher had been in the titbit of buying "treifah" meats all the time and
selling it for kosher. And yet, during all this tim.', the kashrus committee, the mashgiach and all
others connected had been stamping the meat as k islier and selling it to the Jewish public with the
approval of the kashrus committee and the offi.-ials.
Rather a sad but not an unusual commentary on the effectiveness of kashrus committees. And
that is the answer to the query, "Why Questionmires?" The questionnaires submitted were simple
and direct. The gist of it was to give information regarding the kashrus or non-kashrus of the
meats and poultry offered for sale. And an important phase of the questionnaires was the author-
ity contained, when signed, enabling one to verify and ascertain the truth of the answers.
It probably is gall probably unusual tenvrity to try to inquire as to whether or not meats
and poultry offered for sale to the Jewish public a e really kosher.
To the credit of the butchers of this area, lo' it be said that only one out of twelve kosher
butcher stores in Miami Beach refused to answer, and that in Miami ONLY ONE ANSWERED.
Why it is that DAL'M'S KOSHER MARKET AT MIAMI BEACH, and DAIM'S KOSHER MAR-
KET WALDORF'S KOSHER MARKET and THE UNITED KOSHER MARKET, the last three all
of Miami, all REFUSE TO ANSWER is a matter t'tat the Jewish purchasing public is entitled to know.
Have they anything to conceal?

The Royal Commission is in for.
mal session in Palestine. For what
purpose? To inquire, we are told,
j "into the administration of the Pal-
I estine Mandate." The thing is
in itself a matter of unfathomable
: though in all likelihood not alto-
gether conscious treachery. The
mandate is there for all men to
read. It has been administered
badly and inequitably. It has been
administered feebly and with a pro-
Arab partisanship which has been
more than merely unjust. It has
been morally repulsive because it
could riot evan pretend to any
right on its side nor even to impe-
rial interest nor even to cash value.
The mandatory power knows that
there is no Arab in Palestine who
has not directly or indirectly bene-
fited by the Jewish resettlement;
it knows that the Jews have made
Paestine the only country in the
world today that has a huge sur-
plus in its treasury; it knows that
a feeble Yishub is of no use to
Britain, but that a powerful one
could easily be a cornerstone of
imperial defense. The mandatory
power knows all that perfectly
well. Then why a royal commis-
sion ? To confuse council, to make
the worse appear the better reason,
to throw dust, as the French say,
into the eyes of the world.
Why? Why? The answer is
obscure. It goes deep. The gov-
erning classes of Britain, whose
virtues are great, but are all pagan
virtues, cannot imagine that any
good can come to them or their em-
pire from men who are not pagan.
They cannot imagine it. Their
minds and their imaginations stop
w.nkiiig at a certain point. The
effendi who plays a good game of
polo may be a rascal. But they
understand him and even his ras-
cality. Deep calls to deep. Law-
rence and the Arab tribesmen were
not BO different from Beowulf and
the Gaelish tribesmen at the be-
ginning of the history and legend
of the Angles and the Saxons. Pa-
gan understand pagan. Our men
and women who have refoutided
justice and peace in Palestine and
built the first community among
men that has ever been founded
without resort to force, without the
use of violence, and who during
the six months of the bloody and
treacherous Arab "strike" commit-
ted not one act of reprisal, re-
turned not one blow, though little,
children were murdered and Ha-
dassah nurses shot from ambush
- these men" and women are as
strange and uncanny to the pagan
rulers of Britain as that Jewish
teacher whom they have trans-
formed into a pagan god and whom
from the lips outward they pro-
fess to serve.

The Pulpit
Time there was when the pulpit was graced by the rabbi
of old only on rare and highly important occasions. On the
eve of Yom Kippur, on Shabbos Hagodol one would see the
venerable rabbi of old mount the rostrum, approach the Holy
Ark, kiss the I'oroches and then turn to his people and talk
not of his own selfish, vanity-inspired thoughts, but of faith,
duty, devotion ... If there was a momentous matter which
required action of the entire people, then and then alone
could the rabbi be prevailed to speak from the pulpit. For
was not the pulpit holy not to be profaned.
Times have changed. Today the rabbi, the leader of his
people, must reach his people not by mere example alone, but
by talking, preaching, sermonizing, too often not TO his
people, but AT them. Nevertheless, to the credit of the great
majority of the rabbis, let it be said, particularly in this com-
munity, that the pulpit has not been used for the airing of
petty grievances or other than the word of God uttered. It is
indeed a good omen that our present rabbinate has realized
the sanctity of the pulpit.
Has this been true of the laity? Have due care and
caution been exercised by officers of synagogues to prevent
irresponsible men, be they rabbi or lay. to profane the pulpit,
to lower its dignity so that instead of the word of God being
spoken it has become a place of acrimonious and bitter dis-
cussions not of religion, but of personal animosities. The
answer is rather simple our lay leaders have disregarded
their duty in this respect. Not that they can be totally
blamed But what is the result just that inevitable one
. that our youth, our older people begin to look upon the
synagogue, and rightly so, as but another "yatke gass" where '
the fishwives and mongers would gather to air, in language
unfit to he printed, the persiflage of the day.
I know it is unfair to suggest that the policy of radio
stations be followed and proposed sermons be edited in ad-
vance however perhaps a word of caution in advance
... an admonition that any attempt to misuse the pulpit will
be immediately stopped .. right then and there.

The hoardings of Paris are cov-
ered with manifestos starting with
such slogans as "the Jews in pow-
er," "France under the Jewish
yoke," and "the Jews have sold
France to Russia" One of the
most virulent anti-Jewish sheets
in Paris, "Savet-Vous" (Do You
Know?), owned by a Jewish finan-
cier, is seeking to divert attention
from rich Jews by working up the
bogey that recent Jewish immigra.
tion from Germany and Eastern
Europe is responsible for the anti-
Jewish wave Because of this
anti-Semitic agitation Jews in
France are changing their names
. Seventy-five thousand applica-
tions for name changes have been
handled by the French courts in

we learned that David Freedman,
the humor genius who died last
week, was deeply interested in
mathematics And now we see
by the current issue of Scripta
Mathematica, the mathematical
quarterly put out by Yeshiva Col-
lege, that Harry Hershfield, ace
cartoonist and wit, has contributed
to that austere scientific journal
an item that may best be described
as a mathematical gag ... In this
issue we also see the hailing of the
discovery of a perfect number of
more than 19 digits by a Dr. Sam-
uel I. Krieger, reported in the press
last March, was all a mistake
first because the Krieger number
as reported (we won't try to tell
you what it is) is not a "perfect
number," and secondly, because a
perfect number of 77 digits, which
sounds like a lot of digits, has been
known for over twenty years.

No. this is not mere theorizing
and supposition. The pagan is
showing his true colors. Lord Peel,
chairman of the Royal Commission,
the other day sharply took Moshe
Shertok to task on the question of
illegal immigration. "You took no
steps to halt the practice," said
Lord Peel. Mr. Shertok testified
that the government had never
turned to the Jewish Agency for
assistance in the matter. He then
went into the human aspect of the
problem and spoke of "the depths
of despair which compels Jews to
i seek their salvation in Palestine."
j "I am not justifying illegal immi-
Igration," he declared, "but I am
explaining why it is unthinkable
that a Jew should give informa-!
i tion which would lead to I lie de-
portation of other Jews." Both
i Lord Peel and Sir Laurie Hammo-id
were reported to be obviously dis-
I satisfied with this.
Meditate on this incident. It
comes very near to revealing the
deepest source of all the worst evil
thai there is in the world. These
two Englishmen, Peel and Ham-
mond, well born, well bred, sup-
posedly sensitive and not altogeth-
er stupid men, must know pretty j
accurately the plight of the Jew-
ish people in Germany, Poland, Ru-
mania. They must know of that
naked despair; they must know of
that immitigable tragedy. Yet they |
had to have it explained to them
that no Jew in Eretz Israel could
denounce another Jew who was an
illegal entrant and cause him to
be sent back to a Nazi concentra-
tion camp or to the hunger and
disease in Poland. They had to
have it explained to them. And
when Shertok did explainwith
what grief and fury in his heart
at the unspeakable necessity one
can easily imaginePeel and Ham-
mond "were obviously dissatisfied."
Why were they dissatisfied ? Be-
cause there is a law. Because
those tragic men and women who j
crept by stealth into the land of
their fathers were guilty of an ac-
tion that is "illegal." But there
was no speech before Peel and
Hammond of the actions of the
persecutors who drove those men
and women to despair and to flight
and to stealth. No, for those per-
secutors had passed laws accord-
ing to which their persecution of
the innocent was legal. If there
were in the universe an embodied
principle of evil, if there were Sa- '
tan, I know what he would be. He |
would be a maker of laws.
Nine times out of ten it is the '
law that is on trial, not the man.

Miss Regina Klein of Omaha,

licit know him or his case or his;
need or his inwardness or his mit- j
igation or even justification be-1
fore the tribunal of his own soul j
in some court of eternity. We are I
not mechanisms, or robots. Yet the !
law treats us as though we were.
A law that bids a Jew send anoth- i
er Jew back to the hell of Germany
and Poland is a more criminal
thing, a fouler offense against the ,
spirit of man than any single in-
fraction of any law in the whole '
world that any individual can com-
mit. It is the law that is guilty
and not the breakers of the law.
And that is true a thousand times
a day in every land in every court
of so-called jus: ice. Rigid and in-
flexible laws applied lo human souls
without a specific interpretation
bearing upon the moral values in-
volved in that particular case are
the most wicked ami cruel things
in the whole world. They are the
root of all evil. They are evil it-
self. The law has no majesty ex-
cept as it has understanding, hu-
manity, flexibility, wisdom, except
as it deliberately upholds the high-
er values, if necessary in its own
despite. "The Sabbath was given
to you," said our sages, "but you,
you were not given to the Sab-
!>ath." If that is true of a law
supposedly of Cod. Mow infinitely
truer is it of a law mad' by other.
men.
This is the mark of the pagan.
He worships the law irrespective of
its content or consequences; he is
"loyal" without examining the ob-
jects of his loyalties for their eth-
ical content; when will Jews and
Christians rebel against law and
loyalty?

So That ____
During the past several weeks we have received letters
from different parts of the country. Some inquire regarding
the kashrus of particular hotels others ask that we sug-
gest which hotels are kosher others commend us on our
stand regarding butchers Among the interesting letters,
printed here because we believe in the sincerity of the writer,
is the following:
"Gentlemen:
As a kashruth head for a number of years in my
home city of Saratoga Springs, N. Y., as a winter
resident of Miami Beach since 1929, I have always
appreciated your steady righteous fight for Kash-
ruth in Miami Beach and Miami, and exposing the
fictitious kosher hotels and restaurants. You surely
remember that when I was the chairman of the Vaad
Hakashruth in Miami Beach three years ago that I
was compelled to resign because of being threatened
with death by the Treifniakes.
"I'm therefore interested to know of what as-
surance of Kashruth you have of those you have
in your own valuable publication exposed as treifa.
Have you observed and are you sure that those ho-
tels and restaurants whom you exposed as treifa
that they have exchanged their dishes and cooking
utensils? Have you any assurance from those you
are now advertising as kosher that they are not
cooking on the Holy Sabbath? Have any of the ad-
vertised kosher butchers and kosher kitchens
learned mashgiachim in their places?
"I would like to know all above so I can report
to those who ask me, and especially the Agudas
Harabonim of New York.
"Sincerelv vours,
(Signed) "J. S. SOVATKIN."
Thanks for your commendation, friend Sovatkin, and
for the opportunity thus afforded of telling you and the
entire Jewish public some interesting facts. The Jewish
Floridian does not, by accepting advertising from clients,
guarantee to the readers that such places, be they hotels,
restaurants or butchers, are kosher, or that they observe the
laws of Sabbath. You and we know that a layman should
not, and WE do not, propose to determine dinim. Such ques-
tions should properly and in EVERY case ... be deter-
mined by competent, honest and, above all, fearless rabbis
. rabbis who, because of their training, and because they
possess Smicha from reputable institutions of learning or
learned Gaonim, are qualified to decide laws of kashrus. You
and we, friend Sovatkin. should place ourselves and our means
at their disposal to help them learn the facts. The Jewish
Floridian has tried to do this. Every butcher in this area has
been sent a questionnaire. These questionnaires were not\
because we personally were interested in the individual butch-
er .. but because we wanted to learn true conditions and I
true facts ... we wanted to be empowered by the butchers '*>' PHINEAS J. BIRON
themselves to investigate their stores, go through their rec- \ Notei on Royalty
A call is being sent out to all
agile young men interested in the
manly art of boxing and who
would like to fight under the Y.
M. H. A. banner during the pre-
liminaries of the approaching Gold-
en Gloves tournament during Jan-
uary to place their name, etc., with
Louis Safan.

wide advantage of this right .

Anti-Nazi forces are get-

We are I not mechanisms, or robots. Yet the law treats us as though we were. A law that bids a Jew send anothi er Jew back to the hell of Germany and Poland is a more criminal thing, a fouler offense against the spirit of man than any single infraction of any law in the whole world that any individual can commit. It is the law that is guilty and not the breakers of the law. And that is true a thousand times a day in every land in every court of so-called jus: ice. Rigid and inflexible laws applied lo human souls without a specific interpretation bearing upon the moral values involved in that particular case are the most wicked ami cruel things in the whole world. They are the root of all evil. They are evil itself. The law has no majesty except as it has understanding, humanity, flexibility, wisdom, except as it deliberately upholds the higher values, if necessary in its own despite. "The Sabbath was given to you," said our sages, "but you, you were not given to the Sab!>ath." If that is true of a law supposedly of Cod. Mow infinitely truer is it of a law mad' by other. men. This is the mark of the pagan. He worships the law irrespective of its content or consequences; he is "loyal" without examining the objects of his loyalties for their ethical content; when will Jews and Christians rebel against law and loyalty?

track.
For weeks workmen have been
busy making improvements at the
track, which is without question
the most beautiful greyhound rac-
ing establishment in the world.
More than 82(1.000 has been spent
by Jacob Slier, president of the
club, and William Huntley, vice-
president and general manager, in
impn vi ments.
The first startling innovation
which the fans will see will be the
Baring starting box, the first

A hydraulic elevator is used to
lift the box from a deep c increte
walled pit and lower it. The gla&S
starting box can be raised or low-
ered in eight seconds.
For years dog track owners have
attempted to solve the problem of
the futurity box, which has ob-
structed the view of the spectators
while the dogs raced down the
stretch. It remained for Sher and

the disappearing starting box.

By A I. SEGAL
My friend. Mr. Weinberger, sends
me a newspaper clipping which re-
ports a sermon of the Rev. Ray
Charles Jarman of the Evanston
Christian Church of Cincinnati.
The Rev. Mr. Jarman speaks on
the kind of sermons ministers are
expected to deliver.
"The sermon." says he, "must
not attempt to teach anything spe-
cific. Never must it put its fin-
ger on the sore spots that infest
our disease-ridden society. The
implications may be present, gen-
eral statements may be made, but
to point out the infected places is
an inexcusable blunder, and might
Cost the minister his position."
* *
Oh, Mr. Jarman, it is thus in
many a Jewish congregation, too,
and glad I am to have escaped the
rabbinate very young, as I did.
Sometimes, in fanciful mood, I
say: "Well, suppose you had be-
come a rabbi V"
Rabbi Segal, indeed! It is Fri-
day, and Rabbi Segal has not yet
prepared his sermon for Saturday.
He has Ik en putting the matter off
all week, being beset by doubts. He
was wrestling with his conscience.
Rabbi Segal had found an infect-
ed place in society. He had known
that there were many places like
that, but this particular infected
spot was within the congregation,
as one might say.
It was bad enough to see slums
kept by McCarthy or Baxter or
Von Schweinfuss. Rabbi Segal had
found slums in possession of mem-
bers of his own congregation! In
fact, he had often spoken against
slums in general, but these were
slums in particular. What shouid
he say about slums in particular?
This was what he was wrestling
with his conscience about.
He had gone privately to the of-
fending memebers: "I come to
speak to you about a matter hav-
ing to do With the best interests
of Jewry. If Smith or Jones owns
foul tenement hou i blame is
only on Smith or Jones. But you
know how the fault of onfl Jew is
put on all. I come to ask you to
do something about your tenement
houses.
"Rabbi Segal," one and another
inswered, "you know your busi-
i and I know mine. Vou just
stick to your own business, please."
From Monday unto Friday Rabbi
Segal had been wrestling with him-
self: Since private suasion had
failed he must speak courageously
from the pulpit. Before the eyes
of the entire congregation he would
hold up slum owners to shame, and
the guilty ones might come to con-
trition. They u ul l be made to
see that an infected tenement house
which a Jew owns is an infection

DECEMBER 25, 1986 Vol. 9—No. :>2 Words fail me in the attempt to thank you for your attendance at the most successful fifth annual ball, held last Sunday at the Miami Civic Center. Al Pallot. chairman of the dance, was the recipient of several checks, one from Mrs. Sam Shindell, president of the Y. W. H. A., and another from Samuel Badanes, president of the Junior Division, amounting to $75 and $50 respectively. A vote of thanks is due E. Allert Pallot, chairman of the dance, and Milt Friedman, Arthur Blatt, sat Blumberg, Manny Tietler, Harry Blumin, Al Rosenfeld and Lou Safan for the fine publicity received. The second annual New Year's Eve celebration will be held by the Y. M. H. A. and Y. W. H. A. Thursday night, December 31st, at the Alamac Hotel. Only 75 couples will be accepted and they must be members of the "Y." Phone ::-4012 or call at the "Y" clubrooms and ask for Boris Schlachman or Harry Schwartz. Eugene, youngest of the four male Vienna Rothschilds, was prevailed upon iii become a Czech citizen Another brother, Baron George, died in an insane asylum a couple )f years ago Eugene is the dandy of the family Recently he was voted one of the world's ten leading gentlemen Don't be surprised if the wedding of Edward and Mrs. Simpson takes place under the Rothschild roof which reminds us that Baroness Eugene de Rothschild was one of the favorites of Edward's grandfather, Edward VII. in whose court circle she was a popular figure. Last Monday the Junior Division was given a real treat when Rabbi Colman Zwitman addressed them. Youthful Rabbi Zwitman was embarrassed when one of the new members of the "Y" Juniors asked him if he would like to fill out an application blank and join the Juniors. So That During the past several weeks we have received letters from different parts of the country. Some inquire regarding the kashrus of particular hotels others ask that we suggest which hotels are kosher others commend us on our stand regarding butchers Among the interesting letters, printed here because we believe in the sincerity of the writer, is the following: "Gentlemen: As a kashruth head for a number of years in my home city of Saratoga Springs, N. Y., as a winter resident of Miami Beach since 1929, I have always appreciated your steady righteous fight for Kashruth in Miami Beach and Miami, and exposing the fictitious kosher hotels and restaurants. You surely remember that when I was the chairman of the Vaad Hakashruth in Miami Beach three years ago that I was compelled to resign because of being threatened with death by the Treifniakes. "I'm therefore interested to know of what assurance of Kashruth you have of those you have in your own valuable publication exposed as treifa. Have you observed and are you sure that those hotels and restaurants whom you exposed as treifa that they have exchanged their dishes and cooking utensils? Have you any assurance from those you are now advertising as kosher that they are not cooking on the Holy Sabbath? Have any of the advertised kosher butchers and kosher kitchens learned mashgiachim in their places? "I would like to know all above so I can report to those who ask me, and especially the Agudas Harabonim of New York. "Sincerelv vours, (Signed) "J. S. SOVATKIN." Thanks for your commendation, friend Sovatkin, and for the opportunity thus afforded of telling you and the entire Jewish public some interesting facts. The Jewish Floridian does not, by accepting advertising from clients, guarantee to the readers that such places, be they hotels, restaurants or butchers, are kosher, or that they observe the laws of Sabbath. You and we know that a layman should not, and WE do not, propose to determine dinim. Such questions should properly and in EVERY case ... be determined by competent, honest and, above all, fearless rabbis rabbis who, because of their training, and because they possess Smicha from reputable institutions of learning or learned Gaonim, are qualified to decide laws of kashrus. You and we, friend Sovatkin. should place ourselves and our means at their disposal to help them learn the facts. The Jewish Floridian has tried to do this. Every butcher in this area has been sent a questionnaire. These questionnaires were not \ because we personally were interested in the individual butcher .. but because we wanted to learn true conditions and I true facts ... we wanted to be empowered by the butchers '*>' PHINEAS J.

M. H.

And the debate is raging merrily German Catholic priests are refusing to officiate at funerals of Nazis whose ci [fins are draped with swastikas The Soviet goverenment has issued a special set of Birobidjan stamps healing the portraits of Birobidjan Jewish settlers Jewish refugees in Switzerland, most of whom are living in the most penurious circumstances, are forbidden to engage in the slightest gainful activity and must report periodically to the security police The police have the right to raid the homes and apartments of the refugees at all hours of the night and day, and have recently taken wide advantage of this right Dr. Serge Voronoff, the exponent of monkey gland rejuvenation, is getting ready to renovate his recent bride, who is a cousin of Mme. Magda Lupescu. Tampa Notes The marriage of Miss Millie Silvcrman and Max E. Brody was solemnised at the Kdgewater Hotel, Rabbi Burger officiating, in the presence of numerous relatives and friends on Sunday, December 20th, at 11 a. m. Following the reception, the couple left for Miami to spend their honeymoon. Mr. Brody is planning to enter the hardware business on his return to Tampa. On Sunday afternoon, December 87th, Miss Paulina Letboviti will he married to Sol Fleischman, announcer of station WDAK at the Tampa Terrace Hotel, by Rabbi Buiger. The couple will spend their honeymoon at Miami and are planning to be hack in Tampa by January 3rd. .Miss Gertrude Michael, dramaticdirector of the Y. M. H. A., left for her home in South l'ittsburg, Tcnn.. where she will remain for several weeks. On her return to Tampa, early in January, she will resume her classes in public speaking, dramatics, expression and diction. Miss Helen Rutkin has returned from the University of Georgia and will spend her vacation at home. Next Monday the Juniors are having a social program for the many visitors and Tuesday the Y. W. H. A., under their president, Mrs. Sam Shindel, will hold an interesting educational program, to be followed by a social hour. The public is cordially invited to attend. And next Wednesday a general meeting of the Y. M. H. A. will take place when the reports of the journal and dance will be announced. Get the habit and attend the "Y" regularly. Back Home Anti-Nazi forces are getting ready for a boycott of the Schmeling-Braddock title bout next June Part of their ammunition will be the disclosure that Schmeling is a prominent member of the Nazi party and a picture showing him in the uniform of a storm trooper. Y. M. H. A. NOTES The "Stunt Night," which had been originally scheduled for December 18th, has been postponed until January 17th, after Miss Gertrude Michael, who is directing this affair, will have returned to Tampa, following her visit to her home. On this night all Jewish organizations of Tampa have been invited to sponsor a "stunt," skit or program of about ten minutes' duration. The organizations which have already responded are the Council of Jewish Women, the Junior Council, Ladies' Auxiliary of Cong. Rodoph Sholom, Sisterhood of Temple Schaari Zedek, Junior Hadaasah, B'nal B'rith, Merryfellows. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. The new committee appointed for the Girl Scouts is composed of Mrs. I.

Holds Frankfurter Gets Gov Lehman Tel Aviv Annual Dance Sard Labor Urges Faith Has Fire The fifth annual dance sponsored by the Young Men's Hebrew Association of Greater Miami will be held at the Cinderella Ballroom this coming Sunday evening, December 20th, beginning at 9 o'clock. Star entertainers now in the various night cubs of this area will be presented during the evening for the entertainment of the guests. Two orchestras will provide the music for dancing throughout the entire evening. This dance is being held for the benefit of the Y building fund to raise sufficient funds so that a lot may be purchased and actual construction of a building begun within a very short time. In a statement issued by Mr. E. Albert Pallot, general chairman of the dance committee, just before going to press, he said, "The Y is indeed grateful to the entire Jewish and non-Jewish community of Greater Miami for the splendid cooperation shown us in the past several months. Marked has been the help given us by the large number of Jewish bodies, Rabbis and lay leaders who have realized that the Y is working not for themselves alone but to try to establish a real "haven of refuge" for the Jewish youth of this community. Inexperienced though the leadership of the Y has been, it has always been imbued with the one thought that its own private desires must be forgotten in the greater necessity of providing not only a meeting place for its own members, but a gathering place for the Jewish youth of Greater Miami. It is for that reason that our committee has been gratified by the help extended us by all of our citizens. With this thought in mind I want to extend a cordial invitation to the entire community of Greater Miami to attend our fifth annual Ball next Sunday night at the Civic Center Ballroom (Cinderela Ballroom) so that our goal of building a home for the Jewish youth may the sooner be realized. The Y building can be made a reality if all of us work together." The committee of arrangements consist of E. A. Pallot, general chairman; Milton A. Friedman and Harry Schwartz, program [ chairman; Nat Blumberg, ticket chairman; entertainment chairman, Arthur Blatt; reception chairman, Al. Rosenfeld; publicity chairman, Louis Safanowitz; secretary, Manny Tietler; treasurer, Harry Blumin.

CHUR, Switzerland (WNS)— Eighteen years at hard labor in the Canton of Grisons was the sentence imposed on David Frankfurter, 27-year-old Jewish medical student from Yugoslavia, by the five-man court which found him guilty of the murder of Wilhelm Gustloff, Swiss Nazi leader, who was shot at Davos on February 4, 1936. The verdict brought to a close the sensational trial which began on December 9th and ended on December 12th. The court's decision also ordered Frankfurter to pay the costs of the trial, to compensate Frau Gustloff for the damages suffered through the death of her husband, and to be expelled forever from Switzerland upon the completion of his sentence. He was given credit for the eight months he has spent in prison >'ince his arrest. The verdict, which was not a surprise, was exactly what the state prosecutor, Dr. Friedrich Bruegger, had demanded both in his opening address to the court and in his summation. It did not, however, please the Nazis either here or in Germany, who have insisted that only the death penalty could atone for Gustloff's death. There is no capital punishment in Switzerland, the maximum sentence for murder being life imprisonment. It is expected that Frankfurter's counsel, Eugene Curti, will appeal the verdict to a higher court. Shortly before black bearded Presiding Justice Antoine Ganzoni announced the verdict in solemn tones, the court was stirred by a rumor that a fanatic Nazi had made an attempt on the life New York (WNS)—Calling upon American Jewry to take the lead in reviving faith in God, Governor Herbert H. Lehman, in an address at a dinner held in celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Central Synagogue, emphasized that renewed faith, together with the scientific progress of our age, would bring about "a solidarity in human society expressed in terms of universal justice and peace." Stressing the fact that "our advance in every sphere of altruistic endeavor is stimulated by the finest teachings of religion," the governor declared that "the synagogue | stands forth as a living witness i proclaiming the irresistible power I of truth over error, of justice over wrong doing, of light over darkness. The synagogue is concerned not merely with prayer and praise, but with the promotion of peace and the establishment of justice; deed, not creed, is the object of the synagogue. of Frankfurter. Investigation revealed that the reported attempt had been made on the opening day of the trial, while the accused was being taken from his cell to the court-room. As soon as news of the verdict spread many supporters of Frankfurter gave vent to open criticism of the tactics of the defense counsel. They said that in view of the obvious public sympathy for Frankfurter in Switzerland the lawyer should have made his case an outright appeal for acquittal. It was felt that Curti had underplayed the revenge motive and had not sufficiently emphasized the political implications of the case. TEL AVIV (WNS-Palcor Agency)—While the Tel Aviv Municipal Council by a vote of eight to seven voted to remove Mayor Israel Rokach from two of his most important committee offices, the meeting was interrupted by an alarm of fire from the Tel Aviv water front. By its action, the maI jority of the Council, which has sought to remove the mayor ever since he was appointed by High Commissioner Wauchope following the selection of another candidate, removed Dr. Rokach from the chairmanship of the Tenders' Committee and from his representation of Tel Aviv on the Vaad Leumi Education Council, both being posi. tions he previously held. It was during the discussion of the mayor's removal from his position on the harbor council that the meeting was interrupted by the alarm of fire. The fire had started among lighters anchored in the Yarkon river and spread quickly to the wooden fence around the liaccabi stadium and the wooden Histadruth pavilion on the Levant fair grounds. The troops who guarded the fair grounds assisted the fire brigade in preventing the fire from spreading to the customs house. The damage was estimated at only $5,000 but the incident was seen as an attempt to arson the jetty, the all-Jewish city's greatest source of pride. The news of the fire caused tension throughout the city, the people fearing that the jetty had been set to flames. How. ever, the loading piers were unharmed. The World's Window A Word on Law London (WNS)—No more German-Jewish refugees will be sent to South Africa by any of the Jewish refugee aid bodies because of the violent anti-Jewish campaign i now raging there, it is reported in | usually authoritative Jewish quarj ters here. On November 1st new immigration restrictions became effective m South Africa, but they did not completely cut off the entry of Jewish refugees. The Public and Questionnaires The Jewish Kloridian, a public institution, ha; been recognised as a factor in the upbuilding of the entire Jewish community. It has led in a num >er of endeavors as a result of which certain ills have been corrected and much good accomplished. Wc may have been accused of everything, but never of fear. We have from time to time exposed instances of Ireifah meats being sold for kosher, and we shall not hesitate to do so if the occasion arises. We have organized within recent days a union of "shochtim" so thai these men, a vital factor in th • religious life of any Jewish community, may obtain a living wage. Of course, some of our but -hers don't like this. Vet to the credit of the vast majority of the local butchers let it be known thii they have co-operated and realized that even 11• >.-Ill %  in must live. Why questionnaires? This question has bee i hurled and bandied about in the past week. Why not Vaad Ilakashruth? We just wonder whethr it might interest the Jewish people, and particularly those who were members of the kashrus committee in Miami Beach within the past two years as to the following facts: Everyone remembers the story of "The Lost Lamb." Ss^t was brought by this butcher alleging that they had been foolei. They really thought this unmarked lamb was kosher. What do you think the defense of the wholesale beef packers is? A rather astonishing but yet simple one. That the butcher had been in the titbit of buying "treifah" meats all the time and selling it for kosher. And yet, during all this tim.', the kashrus committee, the mashgiach and all others connected had been stamping the meat as k islier and selling it to the Jewish public with the approval of the kashrus committee and the offi.-ials. Rather a sad but not an unusual commentary on the effectiveness of kashrus committees. And that is the answer to the query, "Why Questionmires?" The questionnaires submitted were simple and direct. The gist of it was to give information regarding the kashrus or non-kashrus of the meats and poultry offered for sale. And an important phase of the questionnaires was the authority contained, when signed, enabling one to verify and ascertain the truth of the answers. It probably is gall probably unusual tenvrity to try to inquire as to whether or not meats and poultry offered for sale to the Jewish public a e really kosher. To the credit of the butchers of this area, lo' it be said that only one out of twelve kosher butcher stores in Miami Beach refused to answer, and that in Miami ONLY ONE ANSWERED. Why it is that DAL'M'S KOSHER MARKET AT MIAMI BEACH, and DAIM'S KOSHER MARKET WALDORF'S KOSHER MARKET and THE UNITED KOSHER MARKET, the last three all of Miami, all REFUSE TO ANSWER is a matter t'tat the Jewish purchasing public is entitled to know. Have they anything to conceal? (Copies of the questionnaire ar: available to those interested) By LUDWIG LEWISOHN This column is copyrighted by the Seven Arts Feature Syndicate. Reproduction in whole or in part strictly forbidden. Any infringement will be prosecuted.' The Royal Commission is in for. mal session in Palestine. For what purpose? To inquire, we are told, j "into the administration of the PalI estine Mandate." The thing is in itself a matter of unfathomable : though in all likelihood not altogether conscious treachery. The mandate is there for all men to read. It has been administered badly and inequitably. It has been administered feebly and with a proArab partisanship which has been more than merely unjust. It has been morally repulsive because it could riot evan pretend to any right on its side nor even to imperial interest nor even to cash value. The mandatory power knows that there is no Arab in Palestine who has not directly or indirectly benefited by the Jewish resettlement; it knows that the Jews have made Paestine the only country in the world today that has a huge surplus in its treasury; it knows that a feeble Yishub is of no use to Britain, but that a powerful one could easily be a cornerstone of imperial defense. The mandatory power knows all that perfectly well. Then why a royal commission ? To confuse council, to make the worse appear the better reason, to throw dust, as the French say, into the eyes of the world. Why? Why? The answer is obscure. It goes deep. The governing classes of Britain, whose virtues are great, but are all pagan virtues, cannot imagine that any good can come to them or their empire from men who are not pagan. They cannot imagine it. Their minds and their imaginations stop w. nkiiig at a certain point. The effendi who plays a good game of polo may be a rascal. But they understand him and even his rascality. Deep calls to deep. Lawrence and the Arab tribesmen were not BO different from Beowulf and the Gaelish tribesmen at the beginning of the history and legend of the Angles and the Saxons. Pagan understand pagan. Our men and women who have refoutided justice and peace in Palestine and built the first community among men that has ever been founded without resort to force, without the use of violence, and who during the six months of the bloody and treacherous Arab "strike" committed not one act of reprisal, returned not one blow, though little, children were murdered and Hadassah nurses shot from ambush these men" and women are as strange and uncanny to the pagan rulers of Britain as that Jewish teacher whom they have transformed into a pagan god and whom from the lips outward they profess to serve.
