eign governments was unanimously

New York, June 24(WN'S)As-
serting that the general impression
existing out of Palestine that the
Jews of that country stand for par-
tition "as a solid block" is incorrect,
and emphasizing that considerable
elements and important ones in the
Vishub "are opposed to any partition
scheme," Mrs. Edward Jacobs, for-
mer president of Hudassah and now
the only woman member, of the Jew-
ish Agency Executive charged that
"the leadership which is in control
of the .Tewi-.li Agency, however,
stands for the Jewish state even at
the cost of dismembering Palestine."
In a statement issued on her return
from a seven months' stay in Pales-
tine. Mrs. Jacobs said that opposition
to partition in Palestine is to be
found among the. labor leaders. Miz-
rachi. General Zionists, Revisionists,
and large numbers unaffiliated with
parties. They have been unable to
spread their viewpoints, she asserted,
becuuse. "they have no organization
machinery for funds and propagan-
dists for that, purpose."

Less talk against Communism and
more about what the church is doing

Coleman Nevils, S. J., rector of New
York's St. Ignatius Loyola Church,,
declared here at the opening of the
23rd annual convention of the Catho
lie Hospital Association of the Unit-
ed States and Canada. Enemies of
the church, he charged, had capital-
ized on the church's failure to publi-
cize its many sacrifices for the needy
and the afflicted.

New York. June 24"The problem
of the rehabilitation of the political
refugees of Europe is not only a mat-
ter of Jewish concern," declared Dr.

Christ in America and secretary of
President Roosevelt's Commission on

the heaviest upon the Jews. Dr. Cav-

London. June 24(WN'S)Ran-
som of $10,000,000 is being demand-
ed by the Nazi authorities in Austria
as the price of releasing Baron Louis
Rothschild, head of the Austrian
branch of the family, who has been
under arrest since the first days of
the Nazi invasion, it is revealed by
the London Daily Herald.
The basis for the ransom claim is
a revival of an old charge against
Rothschild growing out of the 19.11
collapse of the Creditanstalt, of
which he was president.
Rothschild had contributed $10.-
000,000 of his personal fortune toward
the reconstruction of the bank, of
which he had been president, and the
Austrian government withdrew all
charges against its directors. It is
these charges the Nazis have revived
Rothschild's assets in Austria have
all been confiscated but the Nazis are
seeking the $10,000,000 from mem-
bers of the Rothschild family in Paris
and London. Baron Louis' brothers.

RABRI STEPHEN S. WISE
President of the American Jewish
People may sit idly by for years and see things before then-
very eyes before they even realize the siynificance of events.
Such has been the case with Jewry throughout the United States
and particularly in Florida.
For years there have been subversive movements every-
where. Anti-Semitism has sprung up from time to time and
disappeared in some spots only to appear elsewhere. In Florida
we have had anti-Semitic preachers, anti-Jewish movements, sub-
versive organizations under the guise of fighting communism
and many of us have sat idly by without in the least considering
the import or meaning of these activities.
Suddenly there seems to be an awakening. We now begin
to realize that sitting idly by, doing nothing, taking the attitude
of "Sha-Sha" Jews has brought us nothing. Everyone respects
a fighter.....one who battles for what is rightfully his wins
the approbation of friend and foe. With the publication of the
news of the German spy ring, the beginning of the Congressional
Investigation against the German-American Bund and other un-
American activities in this country, Jewry throughout the coun-
try is beginning to wake up.
In Miami while the great mass of the people have sat idly
by, there has been a group of alert men always on the watch,
ready and willing to do their bit towards the defense of our
rights as American citizens. This group is now working hard
as heretofore and has recently received the encouragement of
those who heretofore were content to do nothing.
We wonder whether some of our Jewish leaders who are al-
ways ready to tell the other fellow what to do, will now an-
swer when they are asked to contribute towards the work of
the B'nai B'rith anti-defamation group. Will they contribute
they should or will they find some excuse. Will they continue
to sleep or have they too, awakened.

I tiona of that city. In Miami Mr. Ab-

LEAVE FOR VACATION
Mr. and Mrs. Abe Aronovit- and
children left for Asheville, N. C, yes-
terday to spend the summer. Mr.
Aronovitz will return to the city
about the first of July.
This coming Sunday Miami will be permitted to take part
in one of the most significant movements in years when the
elections for the delegates to the American Jewish Congress in
September will be held here.
True enough there will be no referendum to consider be-
cause of the splendid acts on the part of the American Jewish
Congress, the American Jewish Committee, the Jewish Labor
Committee and the B'nai B'rith. Yet it is significant that were
it not for the forcing of the issue by the American Jewish Con-
gress, we would not now have the unity and unification of de-
fenses that we now see takingshape.
If for no other reason than a vote of approval for the heroic
work of Dr. Stephen S. Wise for a representation of the masses
and the doctrine of democratic rule we should come forward in
large numbers and paying the small poll tax of ten cents, reg-
ister and vote this coming Sunday.
And perhaps another good reason: Miami should let the
world know that its Jewish citizens are interested in matters af-
fenses that we now see taking shape.

Mr. and Mrs. Willism Mechlowitz
long-time residents of this area will
leave next Tuesday for Goldsboro, N.
C. to attend the marriage of their
son. Dr. Herman Mechlowitz to Miss
Rose Tessler, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Abraham Tessler of that city.
Miss Tessler is a native of Atlanta,
where she attended school and was
active in the younger Jewish set. Dr.
New York, June 24, (WNS)The
death of United States Senator Royal
S. Copeland recalled that he was a
member of the unofficial Senatorial
delegation of four that went to Pal-
estine a year ago under the sponsor-
ship of the Hearst newspapers to re-
port on conditions there. Their re-
port assailed the Rritish policy and
voiced opposition to partition.
Copeland subsequently addressed
many Jewish gatherings. In tie same
year, when he was a candidate for
the Democratic mayoralty nomination
in New York's hot primary the Naris
endorsed his candidacy as against
that of Jeremiah T. Mahoney. It
was Copeland who first charged that
Senator Black of Alabama, now Su-
preme Court Justice, had been a mem-
ber of the Ku Klux Klan.
Atlantic City. N. J., (WNS)De-
claring that "social ideals are the very
warp and woof of Judaism" and that
"it should be unthinkable that of all
the religious organizations which are
vocal on social reconstruction, social
security, social justice, tbe Synagogue
should be silent," Dr. David Lefko-
witz, Sr., of Dallas, Texas, told the
J'Jth annual meeting of the Central
Conference of American Rabbis that
the Synagogue must take a definite
stand on contemporary social prob-
lems and that if "it fails in its prime
function it has abdicated and deserves
to be the fifth wheel in Jewish com-
Speaking on "the Primacy of tho
SynagogueHow it can be Reestab-
lished," Dr. Lefkowitz, in a symposium
on the synagogue and its place in
Jewish life and its contempornry po-
sition, asserted that the primacy of
the synagogue may yet be retrieved
"if those who are of the synagogue,
Whether Orthodox. Conservative or
Reform, will rise above our admitted
religious differences toward a union
of the synagogue's religious forces."
He also urged that the synagogues,
through the Synagogue Council.
1 should demand of the B'nai B'rith,
' the Jewish Congress and the Ameri-
1 ran Jewish Committee that they join
' with the Council in a unified front
before the world, a fourfold front from
which the characteristic religious or-
! ganization of the Jew shall not para-
' doxically be absent." Dr. Lcfkow.ts
nlso deplored the fact that many
Rubhis are not receiving decent sal-
aries and that no provision is made
for them in time of sickness or old
age. He urged that something be done
1 speedily "to change matters in pulpit
ntadng." recommending that promo-
tions go "to those by who their recon^
deserve advancement." and the *-
pede of applications be ended and that
pulpit-placing take into account the
m.,ls f a congregation and then sup-
ply It with a Rabbi whose qualifica-
tions are known to fit the situation.
The former president of the Confer-
ence also urged his colleagues to de-
mand" that the Conference be recog-
nized as at least equal with those
other groups that speak for American
Israel' 'and proposed that a whole-
hearted process of publicity among
onr own congregations of the state-
ments and decisions of the Conference
should be developed by the different
committees of the Conference, with
"everv Jewish newspaper, every Jew-
ish opinion-forming agency" supplied
"with official digests of Conference
activities and studies and pronounce-
Dr. Lefkowiti said that the two
wavs of reestablishing the synagogues .
primacy are by making it "worthy and
capable of accepting the responsibili-
ties that go with primacy, a synagogue
which supplies the needs of our people
in the social and religious sphere-,
through a lofty spiritual service and
an enlightened, free and capable rab-
binate, and by a vigorous insistence ^^
that the synagogue has the right of <*W-
reprcsenting the Jewish people, has
the right of directive influence and
leadership as of old."

Fraternity held their annual blowout,
there is no need to tell you that it
was a swell affair, cause the turnout
was tops, the floor show was swell,
the Royal Palm was really packed,

500 festive feeling folks, my wife
Sandra and your columnist wish to
thank each and every one of you all
for the splendid reception accorded us
and I am just awaiting the time to
reciprocate so thanks a million.

plaudits of the community for a swel-

work, without hustle, bustle or noise
than any other organization I have

on their ability to get the gang to
cooperate and we kuow that the Y can
use the fraternity as a whole in their
knot will be tied during that time.
With Al Pallot leaving for points
north, we're wondering if he's in line
for an announcement. Al has been
wearing that forlorn look, and we
hear that Walter Jacobs is paving the
way for an easy get-together. If you
know who. how's about letting us in
on the news.
The V won its game Monday eve
by a score of 6 to 1 but the winning
of this game seems to have caused
more sorrow than enjoyment, due to
the. fact that Frank Rose in sliding
into the base broke his ankle. Frank
is at the present time at the Alton
Road Hospital, and its our duty to
visit the fellow who has done so much
for our Y. Here's hoping that Frank
will be up and around in a short
time. Shayne Drugs are leading the

Your columnist sat in at the board
meeting of the Y. a week ago. One
of the main issues considered was the
selection of an Executive Director.
Three men are being considered, the
final decision will rest with the mem-
bers at large, the Governors Club and
the Board of Directors. Much thought
must be given to this matter and it
is necessary thnt we select a man
that will uphold the name of the Y.
and aid it along its path, namely the
erection of a Jewish Community Cen-
ter. So let's all get behind the Y. and
do our bit to make it a success.

Do You Know Why
OLD GOLD Cigarettes
Are Always Fresh?
2 Jackets of Cellophane Seal-in tHfl I
FRESHNESS of Prize Crop Tobaccos
THE weak part of any paper pack-
age of cigarettes is at the fold
where the U. S. Revenue Stamp is
affixed. It is impossible to bring the
label of the package over in order to
seal the top of the package as is
done at the bottom or the package.
The single Jacket of Cellophane,
which is found on all paper pack-
ages of cigarettes, closes the package
as best as can be done at the top of
the package. However, every pack-
age of Double-Mellow Old Gold
Cigarettes has 2 Jackets of Cello-
phane instead of one.
By using an extra jacket of Cello-
phane and inverting the outer Jacket
and sealing it completely at the bot-
tom, the top, or weak part of the
package of Old Golds, is made air-
tight and thereby given double pro-
tection for factory freshness. The Out-
er Jacket opens from the bottom
the Inner Jacket opens from the top.
Old Gold Cigarettes are further
protected _by the fact that an air
chamber is formed between the 2
Jackets of Cellophane, thus giving
the package of Double-Mellow Ola
Gold Cigarettes the best practicable
protection for Factory Freshness.
These 2 Jackets of Cellophane
which are found only on Old Gold
Cigarettes provide much greater pro-
tection for freshness than any other
paper package of cigarettes.
Double-Mellow Old Gold insures
to smokers its rich quality of Prize
Crop tobacco with a maximum pro-
tection of Factory Freshness at all
times. It is also interesting to know
that on account of this Double Jacket
Cellophane, Old Gold Cigarettes give
the smoker a longer and cooler
This is because of the fact that
the Tobacco in Old Gold Cigarettes
is always fresh and not dry. As you
well know, dry grass and dry wood
burn f.. Her than green grass and sea-
soned wood. It is the same with to-
bacco. Dry tobacco burns fast and
hot, while fresh tobacco burns slow ly
because it has moisture. |
Old Gold is a COOLER smoka
than any other cigarette because the
tobacco being Factory-Fresh and con-
taining moisture burns slowly the
smoker does not draw dry heat into
Since the smoker does not draw in
the dry heat of the tobacco into his
nn null and the smoke is a cool one,
there is no chance for coughing or
throat irritation. ^
The smoker, therefore, who smokes
Old Gold Cigarettes enjoys a smoke
which lasts longer ... is cooler...
with no throat irritation and cough
. full flavor of the natural fra-
grance of prize-crop tobaccos with-
out heat. |
By using 2 Jackets of Cellophane,
Old Gold smokers who live in dry
sections of the country are assured
of a fresh cigarette by retention of
the moisture, whereas Old Gold
smokers in low, damp, or humid
communities are protected from ex
cessive moisture, which prevents
them from becoming soggy.
You see, the House of Lorillard
has been making fine tobacco prod-
kU A? 2*1! W""inRn'sFday.
It is this skill born of 178 years of
exper.ence that enables Lorillard to
se bet .age and blend the world's fin-
est tobacco leaf into Old Gold Cig-
arettes and keep them always Factory
Fresh for the smoker. ,
No matter where you buy them,1
Doub e-Mellow Old Golds will reach
you as fresh as they came off the cig-
of Double-Mellow Old Gold Cica3

NEWEST OUTPOST OF THE WORLD UNION FOB
This beautiful Synagogue was recently erected by Temple
Israel in Johannesburg, South Africa. The first Reform
Jewish Congregation in South Africa, Temple Israel is
served by a Hebrew Union College graduate, Rabbi Moses
C. Weiler. The congregation is linked, through its Rabbi,
with the Central Conference of American Rabbis. Its
men's association, the Hasmoneans, is affiliated with the
National Federation of Temple Brotherhoods and its wo-
men's organization is one of the 366 links of the National
Federation of Temple Sisterhoods, women's division of the
Union of American Hebrew Congregations. The congrega-
tion was organized by Rabbi Weiler in 1933.

THE WORLD'S WINDOW
-By LUDWIG LEWISOHN-
Officials See Florida World's Fair Exhibit Miniature
Authentic information is now eora-
iiiK from Vienna. The most shocking
item is this, that great numbers of
the Jewish bourgeoisieand Viennese
Jewry was almost exclusively middle-
classhad no "hunch," took no pre-
cautions but, in spite of all signs to
the contrary, staked their all on
iSchusnigg's attempt to preserve the
Austrian State. And what a State it
wasessentially clerical, reactionary,
anti-Semitic. Jews could just barely
<>xist. A few who, after war, infla-
tion, catastrophe of one kind or an-
Other, still had some money left or by
hook or crook could make money
ngnin were able to sit in their houses
around the Turkenscnhnz Park and
pretend to themselves that all was
going tolerably well.
We arc an odd enough people. We
have the reputation of being realistic
to excess and of daring for material
possessions. The fate of German
Jewry, the fate of Austrian Jewry,
disprove that contention once and for
all. Publicly and internationally I
warned the Jews of the Hitler danger
in the Kiddle nineteen-hundred and
twenties. So did Arnold Zweig. Had
I been a moneyed Jew in Germany
or Austria I would have liquidated
my properties at whatever loss not
later than 1928 and fled. I would
have done so; I definitely advise!
frienda and kinsmen tg do so then.
On the following grounds if the Wei-
mar Republic and if the Austrian Re-
public would not or could not stem
the tide of the Volkische men and
their movements, then no self-rcpeet-
iiig Jew could any longer be loyal to
those Sialis, since in return for lny-
nliy the least that the citUeo can
expect is protection. Rut no self-re.
Bpecting man has any business to live
in a State which can not or will nDt
offer him protection and to which
therefore he cannot be loyal.
What did the Jews do instead? Ei-
ther they befooled themselves com-
pletely and treated the Hitler-Leute
with the celebrated and contemptible
Jewish ironythat defense of the
frightened and supineor else, which
was possibly worse, they orientated
toward the leftist parties and were
noisy among those parties out of all
proportion to their numbers and so
H"< the name, even among half-way
*' nsible people, of waving bloody ban-
ners and wanting to throw torches,
when ; 11 the while they were only
trying with desperate cowardice to
(el nut from under their own fate and
embrace some other.
1 know thai one cannot go behind
the farts of history. Put let me in-
dulge in a fancy. Suppose the J.'ws
of (iiiinany ami Austria had bad
pride, strength, will. Suppose they
had with one accord said in 102S or
even 1980: we can not and we dare
not Stay, We are liquidating and
leaving;. Suppose they had then ap-
pealed to the British Colonial Office.
giving data for the people and the
many, many millions they were ready
to bring to Palestine. Thousands of
souls and billions of property miglit
have been saved and the Yishuv built
up like a magic city.
Instead they used the verbiage used
today in America *by the Rabbi of
Emanuel and the President of Dropsfe
Collegethe identical wcak.minded,
unrealistic, slavish verbiage. And the
the latest despatches tell us that the
parks of Vienna are practically Ju-
denrein. Richnrd Beer-Hofmann can-
not take a stroll in Turkenschanz
Well, Americans have the reputa-
tion of being realistic too. And there
is a great future for the Jews in
America if the Jews will at last share
that realism : if they will say not we
arc Americans like all other Ameri-
cans (Deutsche Staatsburgcr Judis-
cher Konfession) but we are one-hun-
dred percent Americans as Jews, as
members of the historic Jewish people
and therefore in our twofold func-
tioning as Americana and Jews, doub-
ly dedicated to liberty and humanity,
we must save our stricken and op-
preaaed brethren from the fury and
horror of the dictatorships, firstly
and Chiefly because they arc our
br-thren, but also and no less pas-
sionately because we subscribe to that
immortal American maxim of Emer-
son that we are not free while any
Such is one among the hundred ar-
guments for supporting the United
Palestine Appeal with all we have
and are. It is only one argument.
But it is perhaps the very strongest.
Let us at last in one land be realis-
tic. Let us face the music of our
age and fate. It is only our destiny
that we can live, not some other.
Escapist mechanisms bourgeois or
red assimilation, feigned indifference,
pessimistic irony, worrying about the
Arabsall these are but like running
from patent medicine to patent medi-
cine when all that can save life is an
operation. The life of the Jewish
people is in danger. The success of
the United Palestine Appeal in Amer-
ica can help to save that life. Need
more be said?
