Refugee Conference
Adopts Plans
Kaufman To Head
United Bodies
Evian-les-Bains, France, July 15,
|(WNS) The intergovernmental
[refugee conference moved into
e days of executive session on
Tuesday, July 11th, in preparation
| for adjournment on Friday, July
l.rith, after hearing Panama, Costa
lica, Nicaragua and Honduras
pledge themselves to admit their
share of refugees if other countries
|did likewise.
Meanwhile, the conference was
tirrcd by a rumor as yet uncon-
firmed that Germany had let it be
Ik now n she was ready to permit
[emigrants to take 10 percent of
[the value of their property with
1 them on condition that the confer-
ence worked out a program for
getting all Jews out of Germany
and Austria within five years.
At the same time the American
and British delegations agreed to
meet with a German-Jewish dele-
gation headed by Otto Hirsch that
presented a memorandum urging
that provision be made for the
emigration of 200,000 Jews from
Germany in six years and the cre-
ation of a special clearing bank
to facilitate the transfer of Jewish
funds from the Reich.
migrants and preferred farm
workers. Uruguay's spokesman
said his country would accept only
the kind of immigration that could
be assimilated with its rural popu-
lation while the Chilean delegate
declared his country was willing to
aid any action undertaken by the
conference within the framework of
its existing immigration legisla-
tion. He deemed it "not prudent
and contrary to the interests of
Chile's own workers," however, to
permit the amount of its labor sup-
ply to be increased without first
being assured of a market for the
resulting increase in production.
Denmark's delegate informed the
conference she not only could not
accept more refugees but would
like to have some German refugees
settled within her borders taken
off her hands. New Zealand was
equally discouraging.
In view of the fact that none of
the participating countries except .

resentatives of the American Jew-
ish Congress, American Jewish
Committee, B'nai B'rith and Jew-
ish Labor Committee convened
here on July 7th and elected Ed-
gar J. Kaufman of Pittsburgh, as
prime mover in the unity meeting,
temporary chairman. The meeting
also discussed an organization plan
appointed various commitetes and
decided to hold a report meeting
on August 1st. The meeting also
sent the following message to My-
ron C. Taylor, head of the Amer-
ican delegatiin to the intergovern-
ian-les-Bains, France: "The Ameri-
can Jewish Committee, The Amer-
ican Jewish Congress, the B'nai

Justice Cardozo Is Buried
With Simple Funeral Service?
Port Chester, N. Y., July 15,
(WNS)Benjamin Nathan Cardo-
za, justice of the United States
Supreme Court since 1932, the sec-
ond Jew to attain that high office,
was carried to his final resting
place in the Cardoza family plot
at Cypress Hills Cemetery, Long
Island, after private and almost
austerely brief funeral services at
the estate of Justice Irving H.
Lehman of the New York Supreme
Court, where the noted jurist pas-
sed away at the age of 68 follow-
ing a seven months' illness.
Rabbi D. A. Jessurun Cardoza,
no relative of the Justice, who is
associate minister of the Spanish
Portugese Congregation, the oldest
in America, and to which Cardoza
and his family always belonged,
officiated in the presence of a
small company of relatives and in-
timate friends. Among those pres-
ent were Mrs. Franklin D. Roose-
velt, Mayor La Guardia and three
of Cordozo's colleagues of the Su-
preme Court.
Taken ill with a heart attack on
December 13th, he recuperated
sufficiently to be moved from
Washington to the Lehman estate
where he appeared to be making a
slow recovery until he suffered a
relapse in June. It was understood
that even if he had recovered he
intended to resign from the bench
at the fall term of the Supremo
Court.

sion independentent of the existing
I.eague of Nations agencies and
with headquarters in London and
branches in other European cities
loomed as the probable chief con-
tribution of the intergovernmental
refugees conference to the solution
of the refugee problem. A tenta-
tive agreement on such a program
was reported to have been reached
between the United States and
Great Britain with final action be-
iiiK delayed because of British op-
position to the American proposal
that the international commission
be empowered to deal with all ref-
ugees wherever they come. The
British and French are insisting on
restricting the commission's field
exclusively to Greman and Aus-
trian refugees and are also anxious
to subordinate it to the League of
Nations. Under the American plan
the commission would have its own
administrative and technical staff
and director, with James G. Mc-
Donald, former League High Com-
missioner (for German Refugees
regarded as the logical choice.
Meanwhile, spokesmen for ten
more countries and Sir Neil Mal-
colm, present League High Com-
missioner, were heard by the con-
ference at its third public session.
Mexico agreed to furnish "asylum
to foreigners who are afraid for
their lives" and promised them op-
portunities for work. The Domin-
ican Republic announced that it had
opportunities for both agricultural
and professional men and pledged
to provide technical aid and seed.
Ecuador and Peru both stated thoy
could admit only farmers but want-
ed no intellectuals or traders. The
Colombian and Venezuelan dele-
gates said their countries had lim-
ited possibilities for absorbing im-
there is now no anti-Jewish feeling.
Sir Neil urged that the best thing
the conference could do would be
to help private agencies caring
for refugees to facilitate immigra-
tion by providing them with gov-
ernment loans. He recommended
that the refugees be sent to var-
ious countries as individuals in-
stead of enmasse. Malcolm esti-
mated it would cost $5,000 to settle
a family on land.
The American delegates told the
conference that the United States
had no intention of modifying its
immigration quotas but under the
existing quotas would admit 27,-
000 refugees from Germany and
Austria during the coming year.
President Roosevelt, who called the
conference, sent a cable in which
he said "I hope for all success to
the committee in its work, which
is of such importance for a large
part of humanity now plunged into
despair."
A sub-committee of the confer-
ence appointed to deal with repre-
sentatives of private relief agen-
cies granted brief hearings to
spokesmen for the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee, the World Jewish
(Continued on Page Six)
and wish it success in finding an
effective and speedy solution of
the refugee problem, in which the
whole civilized world is deeply
concerned."

Baskin, Isaiah Minkoff and B.
Charney Vladeck; American Jew-
ish Congress, Louis Segal, Dr. Je-
rome Michael, Louis Lipsky and
Max Silverstein; B'nai B'rith, E.

GALA PICNIC
TO BE HELD
The annual picnic of Sholem
Lodge of B'nai B'rith will be heH
Sunday July 17th at the Las Ola 5
Casino, Fort Lauderdale. Cars will
meet at Beth David Talmud Torah
Sunday morning at 9:30 and will
then go to the picnic grounds. Tl-e
Palm Beach Lodge of B'nai B'rith
will be guests of the local lodge
All members are asked to bring
their food with them, though ice
cream and drinks will be served
by the lodge without charge.
Included in the day's program
will be a number of athletic con-
tests, including the baseball con-
test bfttween the two lodges, pota-
to race, sack race, three legged
race, tug of war, fat men's race
and fat women's race and several

of first and second places in the
various races and contests.
In charge of arrangements is a
committee headed by Mr. M. S.
Bandler who announces that ar-
rangements have been made to
take care of the four hundred
members and families who will at-
tend.
It is urgently requested that
River Head Long Island, (WNS)
Willy Brandt, a former Nazi
storm trooper and ex-member of
the German-American Bund, told
a jury In Suffolk County Court
that Bund members must take an
oath of allegiance to Hitler, when
he took the stand as the state's
star witness in its case against six
directors of the German-American
Settlement League, operator of the
Nazi Camp Siedfried at Yaphank,
who are charged with violating
the State Civil Rights Law. The
first two days of the trial were
marked by frequent clashes be-
tween counsel for the defense and
Assistant District Attorney Lind-
say R. Henry and between defense
counsel and Brandt. The defense
counsel tried vainly to shake
Brandt's credibility. A motion by
defense counsel for a directed ver-
dict of not guilty on the ground
the state had neither established
the existence of a secret oath nor
proved the connection of any but
two of the defendants with the
camp, was denied by Judge L. Bar-
ron Hill. The state sought to prove
that only Bund members can en-
roll in the camp, that members
of the Bund are required to take
an oath and that "the Nazis in
this country have the same preju-
dices and hatred against a certain
race as they do in Germany." If
this is proved all Bund members
are subject to prosecution.
Under direct examination Brandt
testified that when he joined the
Bund last May he had to take an
oath of fealty to Hitler. He also
gave details of Storm Troop kill-
ings in Germany and asserted that
the Bund oath and the storm troop-
er's oath were identical. He ac-
cused the Nazis in Germany of
having "crushed the people down"
and of "having taken their free-
dom, and that is not the idea of a
human being." Ernst Mueller,
president of the Settlement Lea-
gue, and Henry Hauck, camp di-
rector, were several times warne 1
by the court to moderate their
tone of voice after they had liter-
ally screamed out denials of the
charges against them. James
Wheeler-Hill, national secretary of
the Bund, at the judge's order,
gave the Hitler salute, and predict-
ed that it would ultimately become
universal in America.
As recited by Brandt, who admit-
ted that was not his full German
name, which he wanted to keep se-
cret to spare his family in Ger-
many from reprisals, the Bund
oath reads: "I pledge my faith to
my leader, Adolf Hitler. I prom-
ise Adolf Hitler and those put in
charge by him and well-known to
me, by means of insignias, to be
recognized as superiors, loyalty
and obedience, and oblige myself
to execute all commands careful-
ly and without personal regard be-
cause I know that my leader does
not ask anything unlawful of me."
each member who is able to ac-
commodate one or more passengers
please advise the president of the
Lodge, Mr. Elry Stone by phoning
2-2791 and that those unable to
go because of lack of transporta-
tion similarly advise Mr. Stone im-
mediately.
A Suffolk county jury deliber-
ated less than two minutes Tues-
day and then convicted six offi-
cials of the German-American
Settlement League, Inc., and the
league itself for violation of tho
state civil rights law.
Judge L. Barron Hill, in meting
out near maximum sentences, said
he would ask the district attorney'3
offered to forward minutes of the
trial to "the proper authorities" in
Washington.
He characterized certain actions
of the defendants at the trial as
"amazing," referring to one of th3
defendants who gave the Nazi sa-
lute to the American flag in the
court-room and when asked if that
was the American salute, replied-
"No, but it will be."
The specific charge acused lead-
ers of the leaguean affiliate of
the German-American Bund which
claims 400,000 membersof con-
ducting a secret oath-taking sock'-.

SECRET RADIO IS
HEARD IN GERMANY
Berlin, July 15, (WNS)The
German underground "Liberty Sta-
tion," broadcasting from a secret
location within the Reich, has ap-
pealed to German workers not to
allow themselves "to be misused by
participating in the shameful out-
rages against the Jews, instigated
by the Nazi racketeers."
SALUTE TO THE
FLAG
By Guy S. Williams
Omaha, Neb., World-Telegram
By the dawn's early light can you
you see, Oh say,
Any hope for the world till Adolf's
put away ?
Nazi
or thick-bearded
Americanism to the Fore
Despite the efforts of misguided individuals, the evident
and untiring work and money of Hitler notwithstanding, Amer-
ica 'l common sense and its love for fair play comes to the fore
every time an emergency faces this country. Regardless of the
work of traitors, because that is all those who have sworn alle-
giance to the United States simply to get the cloak of citizen-
ship around them and then follow the order of Hitler and the
reel of Nazidom, are.....we note that the common sense pi
the American people ever rises uppermost.
The brazen audacity of the Nazi leaders in Riverhead, New
York who saluted the American flag by giving the Hitler sa-
lute was answered very quickly last Tuesday when a Jewry of
nor-Jews convicted them of violations of the New York State
civil rights law and leaders were given stiff jail sentences.
In Florida the large daily papers, the American Legion, the
Elks and other forward looking, decent minded Americans have
stepped to the front in condemnation of Nazism, German Bund-
3m and Similar isms which have no place in our scheme of life.
We want to commend the Evening News, leading daily in
Tampa, for its splendid conception and espousal of a new idea
"Americanism Rally." We reprint part of the editor-
ial appearing in their issue of July 2nd, and the pledge at the
bottom thereof.
MORE INDEPENDENCE NEEDED
Monday, July Fourth, is Independence Day. This day
is set aside in memory of that July Fourth in 1776 when
our intrepid forefathers declared this great nation to be in-
dependent of the yoke of oppression of another nation. It
pendence from the strangle hold of Nazism, Communism,
is now time to declare another day of independence-inde-
true American, whether he be a naturalized citizen or a
or any "ism" that conflicts with Americanism. Every
citizen by birth, should from this day on declare war against
the enemies of America in America. He should beseech the
state and national governments to outlaw any "art**
tion of allegiance to another flag by supposed Americans

This column will constitute my
private "writery" if we can call it
such. It is not a rostrum. I have
no truths with which I wish to
impress the world; truths usually
do not need argument. I have
found that the man who does the
loudest shouting and who is most
vociferous in an argument is the
one must uncertain of his stand
and therefore the easiest to con-
vince.
Consciously I make no propa-
ganda, though a column of this
sort, halting at no barriers or re-
strictions, bowing to nobody's ob-
jection, will necessarily be highly
subjective. What I write here will
be personal opinions, personal
opinions, personal thoughts, per-
sonal views.
"Well, what business is it of
mine what you think?", the ar-
gumentative reader will immediate-
ly ask.
Exactly! I write as I please, an.l
if my thoughts don't please you,
or don't interest you, well, then,
don't read them. This corner is
reserved for those who are open
minded, and arc willing to discuss
issues and trends of the day. You
need not agree with me, but we
can both benefit from a public dis-
cussion of this sort. Comments
from readers will of course always
be most welcome.
A person associated with a news
paper usually has a broader per-

Whereas the layman often nuns

immediately discounts such fame,
because he knows of what stuff
publicity is made. Mind you, this
is by no means meant to be de-
rogatory to newspaper or news-
papermen. In the long run you
will find that most of themthe

treat people today, so shall we be
treated when the day of reckoning
comes. When the Nazis state that
we have to take everything away
from the Jews in the interest of
Germany, don't be decideddon't

Sometimes I wish I were a Gen-
tile. To be sure, you have your
troubles, too. You are worried
about your children, and wonder
fearfully at tomorrow, and suffer
unemployment and tread timorous-
ly on an insecure world. All this
is the pain of Jews as well.
Yet you have only your own pain
as individuals to suffer. Tomor-
row morning you will not be search-
ing the newspapers anxiously (as
Jews do:) "What are they saying
about us today? What new re-
proaches are being heaped on us
this morning? What new out-
rages ?
I dislike even hypothetically to
put any people in the unhappy
place of Jews; but, in order that
THE WORLD'S WINDOW
-By LUDWIG LEWISOHN-
One of the chief characteristics
of this age is its moral stupidity.
The grounds of human action and
reaction are known. They are
among the few things that are
really known. Given enough time
"the lie shall rot."
"When all its work is done, the
lie shall rot;
The truth is great, and shall
prevail.
When none cares whether it pre-
vail or not."
1 make a present of this quota-
tion from Coventry Patmore to
Mr. Neville Chamberlain and to
the gentlemen in the Colonial Of-
fice on the occasion of their per-
mitting the hanging of Solomon
ben Joseph in Acre prison the oth-
< t day. And the reason I do so is
because that execution was a lie
and the symbol of a lie and that
"lie shall rot."
I do not condone the art of the
sguidfcd young revisionist. He
fired on an Arab bus. He did no
damage, which is characteristically
Jewish and reminds one of the old
;;necdote of the Jew who wanted
In be a highwayman and couldn't
Rtab his victim because he had no
"meaty" (fleishig) knife on his
person. He had, that boy, murder-
ous intent. It might well be re-
membered in his favor that he was
stung beyond all endurance by the
unjust suffering of his people in
Eretz Yisrael ;he might well have
claimed or caused to be claimed
for him that defense which freed
Schwarzbard in Paristhat mild
little poetic man who shot down
the butcher Petlura and was acquit-
ted by a French jury on Petlura's
record. The British have invented
the phrase of "fair-play." It is
the French who know the meaning
<-f the thing. But the British
hanged Solomon ben Joseph in an
excess of moral stupidity which
characterizes the entire policy of
Chamberlain and may yet drag the
British empire to its doom.
Why did they hang the boy in
Acre prison ? Because Arabs have
been hanged for similar offenses,
although the vast majority of the
Arab assassins have never been
apprehended. They wanted to
show the Arabs and perhaps the
Fascist world that they are not
playing favorites, that even-hand-
ed justice prevailsstern and un-
compromising. Well, that point of
view is a lie and I have faith to
believe that there is still an Eng-
land that knows it to be a lie, a
lie that must and shall rot.
It has been proven up to the hilt
again and again and acknowledged
and emphasized in all Gentile
quarters (the last time by John
Gunther in Harper's Magazine for
June) that we have brought the
Palestinian Arabs nothing but
good and that the majority of the
Arab outrages, twtrich ha\1e not
spared Arabs either, have been the
work of assissins hired by a small
group of savage and ambitious
men.
What are the Revisionists on the
other hand ? They are the activist
wing of a political party within a
people forced against its will and
character into irredentism by per-
secutions and sufferings and injus-
tices literally unparalelled in his
tory. The sufferings of the Jew-
ish people today constitute, when
measured by the apparent stan-
dards of contemporary civilization,
the foulest crime of all history,
the most unmitigated, the most in-
excusable. The German Jews and
the Austrian Jews, for instance,
did Germany and Austria nothing;
but goodgreat, shining, conspi-
cuous goodat their own cost, at
their own bitter and tragic cost.
And the countrymen of Milton keep
the gates of Eretz Yisrael closed
and chaffer and lie and lie and
chaffer to the destruction of every
incral principle and all the moral
typerience of history. It is enough
to disgust the strongest stomac'a
end to make to fail the stoutest
heart. It is England that forced
the gun of desperation into the
hands of Solomon ben Joseph and
then hanged the lad.
I understand the Revisionists
well enough, just as I understand
the terrific sonnet of the negro
poet Claude McKay:
"What though before us lies
the open grave?
Like men we'll face the murder-
ous cowardly pack,
Pressed to the wall, dyingbut
fighting back!"
And there are moments when I
could wish that we would at least
speak out more clearly and val-
iantly concerning that "murderous
cowardly pack" that hounds us
over half the world. But we are
Jews. The ethics of the West, the
fundamental paradoxes of the
moral life, were born out of the
womb of Israel. To return the
blow is confusion; to return evil
for evil is chaos and destruction.
Such is the hard eternal fact. The
Revisionists have strong hearts
but weak heads. We Jews must not
increase the sum of evil in the
world.
But England, by executing Sol-
omon ben Joseph, plays into the
hands of that "murderous coward-
ly pack" which is her enemy no
less than ours and implicates her-
self with an historic lie, forgetting,
as we had hoped she would not for-
get, that
"The truth is great, and shall
prevail,
When none cares whether it
prevail or not."
you may understand Jews, let us
imagine that some hideous fate has
done to Gentiles as Jews have been
done by for a long time.
This has made you almost psy-
chopatic about yourselfan-in-
ward-looking, brooding man to
whom even the well-disposed neigh-
bor may look suspect. You shoulc
like to be friendly with Neighbor
Smith but yesterday, as he passed
by, there was something in his eye
that suggested he might be anti-
Gentile.
You say to yourself, "I've be-
come a frightened little man
afraid of everything and every-
body. I ought to snap out of it."
But, then only day before yester-
day, your boy who is just out of
college, applied for a job in a big
industry and was turned away be-
cause he was a Gentile.
The boy had graduated cum
laude in chemistry. When he ap-
plied for the job he was given a
blank in which, among other things
he was required to state his reli-
gion. On the prescribed line he
had written the title of one of the
religions of the Gentiles to which
you belong.
The employment manager, a
kindly man, indeed, said: "I may as
well tell you that we don't employ
Gentiles here."
"But," the boy protested, "what
has that got to do with it. Isn't
it sufficient that I am a chemist?
Do the chemical elements know the
difference? Do they react differ-
ently in the hands of non-Gen-
tiles?"
"I'm sorry, sir," the employment
manager answered. "But our nol-
le y is against employing Gentiles."
"But I was graduated cum
laude. ... I made Phi Beta in my
junior year. I. "
"Well, it's not my rule, it's the
company's. I'm sorry."
Yesterday your eyes chanced up-
on a "For Rent" advertisement
it said plainly that Gentiles weren't
wanted. You shrugged your
shoulders at this. It didn't really
matter that some people didn't care
for your company; you yourself
make social discriminations and
don't take everybody into your
house. What mattered much more
was that a door of opportunity was
slammed in your boy's face be-
cause he is a Gentile.
Yet you say to yourself, this
"For Rent" advertisement doesn't
discriminate against you on your
own account. You could under-
stand it if you yourself were an
undesirable fellow, an unmannerly
person; you yourself wouldn't care
to live with any individual like
that. You and your family are
cultured people, contributors to
everything that is fine in the city;
your generosities know no bounds
of faith or race.
They don't want you in the
apartment house only because you
are of the Gentiles. You ask your-
self, "What's the matter with us
Gentiles"- You are always asking
yourself that, always looking in-
wardly in self-inquisition.
You recall that there, are indeed,
some terrible Gentiles, the peni-
tentiaries are full of them and
Dillinger was one of us, to say
nothing of Baby Face Floyd and
they count against me and all the
all the rest of them. But why do
other Gentiles who live God-fear-
ing and law-abiding lives
I know, too, (you say) there are
many vulgar Gentiles among us. ..
people I wouldn't let into my house
even by the back door. But why
should they count against my right
a sa human being and against the
welfare of my children? *
Yet from this pain you have de-
rived a certain pride and a poig-
nant awareness of responsibility.
Oh, you tell yourself, since every
Gentile is judged by the conduct
of other Gentiles I owe it to my
people so to guard my behavior
that no act of mine shall reflect
upon them. You watch your every
step, lest your least misstep be
charged against your people; you
suffer pain to read of a Gentile
gone wrong because you know it
will be said of him, yes, that's the
Gentiles for you.
This morning, as every morning,
you ran down to the porch in your
pajamas for your favorite news-
paper. Almost every morning late-
ly something hideous against Gen-
tiles has been printed; somebody in

ence as a permanent committee
to meet periodically was reached
by representatives of the 32 parti-
cipating governments as the par-
ley adjourned its meeting until

'--. Myron C. Taylor, chair-
nan of the American delegation
will remain in Europe to establish
a permanent secretariat in London

NEW YORK CITY.A national campaign against Nazi principles was launched spectacularly here July 4
by the Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi League. Two airplanes, trailing signs, flew along New Jersey and Long
Island beaches abjuring the thousands of holiday vacationers to refuse to buy Nazi products. The signs
read: "You Pay Nazi Spies If You Buy Nazi Goods." The League announced plans for similar airplane
advertising over summer camps on the Atlantic seaboard and mountain resorts between Maine and Yir-
ini.i. Photo shows: one of the airplanes carrying the banner.

Severin Winterscheidt, former

manager of the Deutscher Weckruf

the Nazi German-American Bund,
was given an indeterminate sen-
tence in the New York County
Penitentiary in Special Sessions
Court after his conviction on a
charge of impairing the morals of
a minor. He will have to serve
from six months to three years af-
ter which time he may be deport-

30-day sentence for a similar of-
fense. A report of a probation of-

a representative of the Nazi prop-
aganda bureau and that he is a
member of the Storm Troops. A
MEXICAN JEWRY
REACHES AGREEMENT
Mexico City, July 15, (WNS)
A tentative understanding between
the Jewish community here and

reached on the basis of which the
government agrees to discuss the
legalization of the residence sta-
tus of all Jews who arrived in the
last five years and to admit into
Mexico German and Austrian Jew.

| cient capital to invest to maintain
themselves here.
This agreement is expected to
settle the two principle problems
that have been giving concern to
Mexican Jewry. In some Jewish
qaurters, however, the government
is being pressed to take a firmer
attitude with regard to curbing the
anti-Semitic propaganda in certain
sections of the press and to killing
definitely a ghetto law still pend-
ing in Congress.

Church's Action
Belmar, N. J., July 15, (WNS)
Praise of Pope Pius for his de-
fense of the Jews was voiced by
Rabbi Herbert S. Goldstein of New
York in his presidential message to
the annual convention of the Rab-
binical Council of America, which
represents the English-speaking
Orthodox rabbinate. He said he
was "delighted at the cooperation
of the Catholic Church through the
message of the Pope to all Chris-
tians that anti-Semitism is anti-
Christian. In this way we can
tome nearer to the practical ad-
herence to the religious message
of the universal fatherhood of God
and the common brotherhood of
man." Rabbi Goldstein urged the
rabbis to seek permission to make
five-minute talks to laborers in
factory towns during lunch hours
and proposed that the Council join
a move to obtain group insurance
and social security benefits for
the clergy.
The convention adopted a reso-
lution urging the New York State
Constitutional Convention to ex-
empt Jews who observe the Jew-
ish Sabbath from observing Sun-
day. Rabbi Joseph Lookstein of
Yeshiva College proposed the es-
tablishment of courts in Jewish
communities to deal with divorce,
marriage and personal litigation
between Jews under the old Tal-
mudic law. Rabbi Goldstein was
reelected president. Other officers

high authority in Germany has
been saying something against
Gentiles.
One day it's "Gentiles are a
scourage" and another day, "Gen-
tiles are our sorrow," or "Gentiles
must be exterminated." This morn-
ing it was Gentiles are in league
to undermine the social order."...
"The mere presence of Gentiles
provokes us".....
You feel horribly troubled. Not
that you are any the less sure of
the merits of your people but you
wonder fearfully what these false-
hoods will do with the minds of
the ignorant.
You know how most worthy your
people have been in the world,
what contributions they have giv-
en. Your philosophers and teach-
ers and preachers; your poets and
singers and painters; your scien-

held at the Palatial Kosher Res-

attendance of over 100 people rep-
resenting nearly all the Jewish or-

smooth manner in which the entire

eral chairman, Mrs. Jake Engler

functioned. Miss Ida Engler acted
as toastmistress and in her usual
poetic style carried us through the
flowery lay-out of the entire pro-

fruit cocktail, gefilte fish, roast
chicken (mind you) a la Y. farm-
er's salad and rose blossom cake
carried out the trend of a garden
scene.
Rabbi Colman A. Zwitman. rep-
resenting the Rabbinical Associa-
tion of Greater Miami, gave the
benediction. Dr. Harold Rand re-
ported, in the absence of Al Pal-
lot, upon the Y. M. H. A. activities
of the past year. Marx Feinberg
acoempanied by Josephine Raxin
enthralled the assembly with his
rendition of "To the Evening Star"
from "Tannhauser" by Richard
Wagner. Mrs. Lena Simon, well
known communal worker officiated
in the installation of the newly
Womens Hebrew Association. An
award for securing the greateset
number of new members for the
Y. W. H. A. was given to Mrs. M.
Shenkman. Col. Sidney H. Pal-
mer brought us a good will mes-
sage from Governor Cone. Pri-
vate Ernest Renson, Spanish War
Veteran brought greetings from
the newly formed Freda Markowiti
Post of the Jewish War Veterans
Association. Leo Robinson and
Harry Markowitz arrived in time
for their dessert, represented the
Governor's Club of the Y. M. H. A.
Mr. Robinson when called upon for
a few words stated that he felt the
Y membership is not calling on
him as frequently as he would like
to promote the interests of the or-
ganization. We just don't want to
take too great an advantage of
your good nature, Leo, but we will
remedy that complaint in the fu-
ture. A piano solo by Miss Raxin
and the benediction by the toast-
mistress in absence of Rabbi Kell-
ner closed the enjoyable affair. A
dance at the Y rounded out a very
enjoyable evening.
The Women's Division have set
a precedent which will surely be-
come an annual affair.

Kagan in memory of the late Mr. Victor Eisenberg Olov Hasholom whose Yahrzeit in our Synagogue will be observed on the 22nd day of Tammuz. Sometimes I wish I were a Gentile. To be sure, you have your troubles, too. You are worried about your children, and wonder fearfully at tomorrow, and suffer unemployment and tread timorously on an insecure world. All this is the pain of Jews as well. Yet you have only your own pain as individuals to suffer. Tomorrow morning you will not be searching the newspapers anxiously (as Jews do:) "What are they saying about us today? What new reproaches are being heaped on us this morning? What new outrages ? I dislike even hypothetically to put any people in the unhappy place of Jews; but, in order that THE WORLD'S WINDOW -By LUDWIG LEWISOHNOne of the chief characteristics of this age is its moral stupidity. The grounds of human action and reaction are known. They are among the few things that are really known. Given enough time "the lie shall rot."— "When all its work is done, the lie shall rot; The truth is great, and shall prevail. When none cares whether it prevail or not." 1 make a present of this quotation from Coventry Patmore to Mr. Neville Chamberlain and to the gentlemen in the Colonial Office on the occasion of their permitting the hanging of Solomon ben Joseph in Acre prison the oth< t day. And the reason I do so is because that execution was a lie and the symbol of a lie and that "lie shall rot." I do not condone the art of the sguidfcd young revisionist. He fired on an Arab bus. He did no damage, which is characteristically Jewish and reminds one of the old ;;necdote of the Jew who wanted In be a highwayman and couldn't Rtab his victim because he had no "meaty" (fleishig) knife on his person. He had, that boy, murderous intent. It might well be remembered in his favor that he was stung beyond all endurance by the unjust suffering of his people in Eretz Yisrael ;he might well have claimed or caused to be claimed for him that defense which freed Schwarzbard in Paris—that mild little poetic man who shot down the butcher Petlura and was acquitted by a French jury on Petlura's record. The British have invented the phrase of "fair-play." It is the French who know the meaning <-f the thing. But the British hanged Solomon ben Joseph in an excess of moral stupidity which characterizes the entire policy of Chamberlain and may yet drag the British empire to its doom. Why did they hang the boy in Acre prison ? Because Arabs have been hanged for similar offenses, although the vast majority of the Arab assassins have never been apprehended. They wanted to show the Arabs and perhaps the Fascist world that they are not playing favorites, that even-handed justice prevails—stern and uncompromising. Well, that point of view is a lie and I have faith to believe that there is still an England that knows it to be a lie, a lie that must and shall rot. It has been proven up to the hilt again and again and acknowledged and emphasized in all Gentile quarters (the last time by John Gunther in Harper's Magazine for June) that we have brought the Palestinian Arabs nothing but good and that the majority of the Arab outrages, twtrich ha\1e not spared Arabs either, have been the work of assissins hired by a small group of savage and ambitious men. What are the Revisionists on the other hand ? They are the activist wing of a political party within a people forced against its will and character into irredentism by persecutions and sufferings and injustices literally unparalelled in his tory. The sufferings of the Jewish people today constitute, when measured by the apparent standards of contemporary civilization, the foulest crime of all history, the most unmitigated, the most inexcusable. The German Jews and the Austrian Jews, for instance, did Germany and Austria nothing; but good—great, shining, conspicuous good—at their own cost, at their own bitter and tragic cost. And the countrymen of Milton keep the gates of Eretz Yisrael closed and chaffer and lie and lie and chaffer to the destruction of every incral principle and all the moral typerience of history. It is enough to disgust the strongest stomac'a end to make to fail the stoutest heart. It is England that forced the gun of desperation into the hands of Solomon ben Joseph and then hanged the lad. I understand the Revisionists well enough, just as I understand the terrific sonnet of the negro poet Claude McKay: "What though before us lies the open grave? Like men we'll face the murderous cowardly pack, Pressed to the wall, dying—but fighting back!" And there are moments when I could wish that we would at least speak out more clearly and valiantly concerning that "murderous cowardly pack" that hounds us over half the world. But we are Jews. The ethics of the West, the fundamental paradoxes of the moral life, were born out of the womb of Israel. To return the blow is confusion; to return evil for evil is chaos and destruction. Such is the hard eternal fact. The Revisionists have strong hearts but weak heads. We Jews must not increase the sum of evil in the world. But England, by executing Solomon ben Joseph, plays into the hands of that "murderous cowardly pack" which is her enemy no less than ours and implicates herself with an historic lie, forgetting, as we had hoped she would not forget, that "The truth is great, and shall prevail, When none cares whether it prevail or not." you may understand Jews, let us imagine that some hideous fate has done to Gentiles as Jews have been done by for a long time. This has made you almost psychopatic about yourself—an-inward-looking, brooding man to whom even the well-disposed neighbor may look suspect. You shoulc like to be friendly with Neighbor Smith but yesterday, as he passed by, there was something in his eye that suggested he might be antiGentile. You say to yourself, "I've become a frightened little man afraid of everything and everybody. I ought to snap out of it." But, then only day before yesterday, your boy who is just out of college, applied for a job in a big industry and was turned away because he was a Gentile. The boy had graduated cum laude in chemistry. When he applied for the job he was given a blank in which, among other things he was required to state his religion. On the prescribed line he had written the title of one of the religions of the Gentiles to which you belong. The employment manager, a kindly man, indeed, said: "I may as well tell you that we don't employ Gentiles here." "But," the boy protested, "what has that got to do with it. Isn't it sufficient that I am a chemist? Do the chemical elements know the difference? Do they react differently in the hands of non-Gentiles?" "I'm sorry, sir," the employment manager answered. "But our nolle y is against employing Gentiles." "But I was graduated cum laude. ... I made Phi Beta in my junior year. I. "Well, it's not my rule, it's the company's. I'm sorry." Yesterday your eyes chanced upon a "For Rent" advertisement it said plainly that Gentiles weren't wanted. You shrugged your shoulders at this. It didn't really matter that some people didn't care for your company; you yourself make social discriminations and don't take everybody into your house. What mattered much more was that a door of opportunity was slammed in your boy's face because he is a Gentile. Yet you say to yourself, this "For Rent" advertisement doesn't discriminate against you on your own account. You could understand it if you yourself were an undesirable fellow, an unmannerly person; you yourself wouldn't care to live with any individual like that. You and your family are cultured people, contributors to everything that is fine in the city; your generosities know no bounds of faith or race. They don't want you in the apartment house only because you are of the Gentiles. You ask yourself, "What's the matter with us Gentiles"You are always asking yourself that, always looking inwardly in self-inquisition. You recall that there, are indeed, some terrible Gentiles, the penitentiaries are full of them and Dillinger was one of us, to say nothing of Baby Face Floyd and they count against me and all the all the rest of them. But why do other Gentiles who live God-fearing and law-abiding lives I know, too, (you say) there are many vulgar Gentiles among us. .. people I wouldn't let into my house even by the back door. But why should they count against my right a sa human being and against the welfare of my children? Yet from this pain you have derived a certain pride and a poignant awareness of responsibility. Oh, you tell yourself, since every Gentile is judged by the conduct of other Gentiles I owe it to my people so to guard my behavior that no act of mine shall reflect upon them. You watch your every step, lest your least misstep be charged against your people; you suffer pain to read of a Gentile gone wrong because you know it will be said of him, yes, that's the Gentiles for you. This morning, as every morning, you ran down to the porch in your pajamas for your favorite newspaper. Almost every morning lately something hideous against Gentiles has been printed; somebody in (Continued on Page Eight) JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA ,. • ConnlcMly lociled %  tke> downtown buliMM, iKoppinf ; ikctur aUkM twwiyii tfc—a ''too* wftk private batb,(io coejrlF tiiculiUnj. let water, radio, fn and bad readinj limp.

PAGE EIGHT THE JEWISH FLOREDIAN FRIDAY, JULY lfr lag PLAIN TALK (Continued from Pate Fire) high authority in Germany has been saying something against Gentiles. One day it's "Gentiles are a scourage" and another day, "Gentiles are our sorrow," or "Gentiles must be exterminated." This morning it was Gentiles are in league to undermine the social order."... "The mere presence of Gentiles provokes us" You feel horribly troubled. Not that you are any the less sure of the merits of your people but you wonder fearfully what these falsehoods will do with the minds of the ignorant. You know how most worthy your people have been in the world, what contributions they have given. Your philosophers and teachers and preachers; your poets and singers and painters; your scientists and actors and scholars; your prophets and philanthropists; your Carrols and Comptons, your EdiBOna and Santayanas, your Cadmans, Holmses and Eliots, your Whitmans.

Yes. good children are everything and nothing else matters much. Because you know all this the slanders in this morning's newspaper hurt you the more. You boarded the street ear to your work. Everybody in the car had a newspaper and you were sure everybody was reading the piece about your people. "Gentiles in League to Undermine Social Order." What were they thinking a? they read this?

Rabbis Commend Church's Action Belmar, N. J., July 15, (WNS) —Praise of Pope Pius for his defense of the Jews was voiced by Rabbi Herbert S. Goldstein of New York in his presidential message to the annual convention of the Rabbinical Council of America, which represents the English-speaking Orthodox rabbinate. He said he was "delighted at the cooperation of the Catholic Church through the message of the Pope to all Christians that anti-Semitism is antiChristian. In this way we can tome nearer to the practical adherence to the religious message of the universal fatherhood of God and the common brotherhood of man." Rabbi Goldstein urged the rabbis to seek permission to make five-minute talks to laborers in factory towns during lunch hours and proposed that the Council join a move to obtain group insurance and social security benefits for the clergy. The convention adopted a resolution urging the New York State Constitutional Convention to exempt Jews who observe the Jewish Sabbath from observing Sunday. Rabbi Joseph Lookstein of Yeshiva College proposed the establishment of courts in Jewish communities to deal with divorce, marriage and personal litigation between Jews under the old Talmudic law. Rabbi Goldstein was reelected president. Other officers ELECTRIC CONTRACTORS Repairs Contracts Alterations LYON ELECTRIC CO.

wJewisti Floridi&n Ottwt The Jewish Unity 99 VOLUME 11.—NUMBER 28. MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JULY 15, 1938 PRICE FIVE CENTS Refugee Conference Adopts Plans Kaufman To Head United Bodies Evian-les-Bains, France, July 15, |(WNS) — The intergovernmental [refugee conference moved into •e days of executive session on Tuesday, July 11th, in preparation | for adjournment on Friday, July l. r ith, after hearing Panama, Costa lica, Nicaragua and Honduras pledge themselves to admit their share of refugees if other countries |did likewise. Meanwhile, the conference was tirrcd by a rumor as yet unconfirmed that Germany had let it be Ik now n she was ready to permit [emigrants to take 10 percent of [ %  the value of their property with 1 them on condition that the conference worked out a program for getting all Jews out of Germany and Austria within five years. At the same time the American and British delegations agreed to meet with a German-Jewish delegation headed by Otto Hirsch that presented a memorandum urging that provision be made for the emigration of 200,000 Jews from Germany in six years and the creation of a special clearing bank to facilitate the transfer of Jewish funds from the Reich. migrants and preferred farm workers. Uruguay's spokesman said his country would accept only the kind of immigration that could be assimilated with its rural population while the Chilean delegate declared his country was willing to aid any action undertaken by the conference within the framework of its existing immigration legislation. He deemed it "not prudent and contrary to the interests of Chile's own workers," however, to permit the amount of its labor supply to be increased without first being assured of a market for the resulting increase in production. Denmark's delegate informed the conference she not only could not accept more refugees but would like to have some German refugees settled within her borders taken off her hands. New Zealand was equally discouraging. In view of the fact that none of the participating countries except i ing held at Evian-les-Bains, France have New York, July 15, (WNS)— Meeting for the first time since the adoption of the Pittsburgh resolution authorizing the creation of an organization to coordinate their activities relating to the safeguarding of equal rights of Jews, representatives of the American Jewish Congress, American Jewish Committee, B'nai B'rith and Jewish Labor Committee convened here on July 7th and elected Edgar J. Kaufman of Pittsburgh, as prime mover in the unity meeting, temporary chairman. The meeting also discussed an organization plan appointed various commitetes and decided to hold a report meeting on August 1st. The meeting also sent the following message to Myron C. Taylor, head of the American delegatiin to the intergovernian-les-Bains, France: "The American Jewish Committee, The American Jewish Congress, the B'nai B'rith and the Jewish Labor Committee, at a joint meeting of representatives of their respective organizations held in New York on July 7th, take notice of the intergovernmental conference now beJustice Cardozo Is Buried With Simple Funeral Service? Port Chester, N. Y., July 15, (WNS)—Benjamin Nathan Cardoza, justice of the United States Supreme Court since 1932, the second Jew to attain that high office, was carried to his final resting place in the Cardoza family plot at Cypress Hills Cemetery, Long Island, after private and almost austerely brief funeral services at the estate of Justice Irving H. Lehman of the New York Supreme Court, where the noted jurist passed away at the age of 68 following a seven months' illness. Rabbi D. A. Jessurun Cardoza, no relative of the Justice, who is associate minister of the Spanish Portugese Congregation, the oldest in America, and to which Cardoza and his family always belonged, officiated in the presence of a small company of relatives and intimate friends. Among those present were Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Mayor La Guardia and three of Cordozo's colleagues of the Supreme Court. Taken ill with a heart attack on December 13th, he recuperated sufficiently to be moved from Washington to the Lehman estate where he appeared to be making a slow recovery until he suffered a relapse in June. It was understood that even if he had recovered he intended to resign from the bench at the fall term of the Supremo Court. Evian-les-B ains, Franc e,— (WNS)—Creation of a permanent the Dominican Republic agreed to anything like mass production, considerable significance was attached to the statement of High Commissioner MalcolmH told the conference that his survey of the situation indicated that under present unemployment conditions and large scale scheme of 'emigration anywhere would only international refugee aid commis-V rouse hostility in countries where sion independentent of the existing I.eague of Nations agencies and with headquarters in London and branches in other European cities loomed as the probable chief contribution of the intergovernmental refugees conference to the solution of the refugee problem. A tentative agreement on such a program was reported to have been reached between the United States and Great Britain with final action beiiiK delayed because of British opposition to the American proposal that the international commission be empowered to deal with all refugees wherever they come. The British and French are insisting on restricting the commission's field exclusively to Greman and Austrian refugees and are also anxious to subordinate it to the League of Nations. Under the American plan the commission would have its own administrative and technical staff and director, with James G. McDonald, former League High Commissioner (for German Refugees regarded as the logical choice. Meanwhile, spokesmen for ten more countries and Sir Neil Malcolm, present League High Commissioner, were heard by the conference at its third public session. Mexico agreed to furnish "asylum to foreigners who are afraid for their lives" and promised them opportunities for work. The Dominican Republic announced that it had opportunities for both agricultural and professional men and pledged to provide technical aid and seed. Ecuador and Peru both stated thoy could admit only farmers but wanted no intellectuals or traders. The Colombian and Venezuelan delegates said their countries had limited possibilities for absorbing imthere is now no anti-Jewish feeling. Sir Neil urged that the best thing the conference could do would be to help private agencies caring for refugees to facilitate immigration by providing them with government loans. He recommended that the refugees be sent to various countries as individuals instead of enmasse. Malcolm estimated it would cost $5,000 to settle a family on land. The American delegates told the conference that the United States had no intention of modifying its immigration quotas but under the existing quotas would admit 27,000 refugees from Germany and Austria during the coming year. President Roosevelt, who called the conference, sent a cable in which he said "I hope for all success to the committee in its work, which is of such importance for a large part of humanity now plunged into despair." A sub-committee of the conference appointed to deal with representatives of private relief agencies granted brief hearings to spokesmen for the Joint Distribution Committee, the World Jewish (Continued on Page Six) and wish it success in finding an effective and speedy solution of the refugee problem, in which the whole civilized world is deeply concerned." Attending the meeting were: Jewish Labor Committee, Joseph Baskin, Isaiah Minkoff and B. Charney Vladeck; American Jewish Congress, Louis Segal, Dr. Jerome Michael, Louis Lipsky and Max Silverstein; B'nai B'rith, E. J. Schanfarber, Louis Fabricant, Henry Monsky, Sigmund Livingston and Maurice Bisgyer; American Jewish Committee, Lewis L. Strauss, Morris D. Waldman, Henry Ittelson, Carl J. Austrian, Sol Stroock, Judge Samuel Rosenman and Samuel Leidesdorf.

GALA PICNIC TO BE HELD The annual picnic of Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith will be heH Sunday July 17th at the Las Ola 5 Casino, Fort Lauderdale. Cars will meet at Beth David Talmud Torah Sunday morning at 9:30 and will then go to the picnic grounds. Tl-e Palm Beach Lodge of B'nai B'rith will be guests of the local lodge All members are asked to bring their food with them, though ice cream and drinks will be served by the lodge without charge. Included in the day's program will be a number of athletic contests, including the baseball contest bfttween the two lodges, potato race, sack race, three legged race, tug of war, fat men's race and fat women's race and several swimming contests. More than 20 prizes will be awarded to winners of first and second places in the various races and contests. In charge of arrangements is a committee headed by Mr. M. S. Bandler who announces that arrangements have been made to take care of the four hundred members and families who will attend. It is urgently requested that River Head Long Island, (WNS) —Willy Brandt, a former Nazi storm trooper and ex-member of the German-American Bund, told a jury In Suffolk County Court that Bund members must take an oath of allegiance to Hitler, when he took the stand as the state's star witness in its case against six directors of the German-American Settlement League, operator of the Nazi Camp Siedfried at Yaphank, who are charged with violating the State Civil Rights Law. The first two days of the trial were marked by frequent clashes between counsel for the defense and Assistant District Attorney Lindsay R. Henry and between defense counsel and Brandt. The defense counsel tried vainly to shake Brandt's credibility. A motion by defense counsel for a directed verdict of not guilty on the ground the state had neither established the existence of a secret oath nor proved the connection of any but two of the defendants with the camp, was denied by Judge L. Barron Hill. The state sought to prove that only Bund members can enroll in the camp, that members of the Bund are required to take an oath and that "the Nazis in this country have the same prejudices and hatred against a certain race as they do in Germany." If this is proved all Bund members are subject to prosecution. Under direct examination Brandt testified that when he joined the Bund last May he had to take an oath of fealty to Hitler. He also gave details of Storm Troop killings in Germany and asserted that the Bund oath and the storm trooper's oath were identical. He accused the Nazis in Germany of having "crushed the people down" and of "having taken their freedom, and that is not the idea of a human being." Ernst Mueller, president of the Settlement League, and Henry Hauck, camp director, were several times warne 1 by the court to moderate their tone of voice after they had literally screamed out denials of the charges against them. James Wheeler-Hill, national secretary of the Bund, at the judge's order, gave the Hitler salute, and predicted that it would ultimately become universal in America. As recited by Brandt, who admitted that was not his full German name, which he wanted to keep secret to spare his family in Germany from reprisals, the Bund oath reads: "I pledge my faith to my leader, Adolf Hitler. I promise Adolf Hitler and those put in charge by him and well-known to me, by means of insignias, to be recognized as superiors, loyalty and obedience, and oblige myself to execute all commands carefully and without personal regard because I know that my leader does not ask anything unlawful of me." each member who is able to accommodate one or more passengers please advise the president of the Lodge, Mr. Elry Stone by phoning 2-2791 and that those unable to go because of lack of transportation similarly advise Mr. Stone immediately. A Suffolk county jury deliberated less than two minutes Tuesday and then convicted six officials of the German-American Settlement League, Inc., and the league itself for violation of tho state civil rights law. Judge L. Barron Hill, in meting out near maximum sentences, said he would ask the district attorney'3 offered to forward minutes of the trial to "the proper authorities" in Washington. He characterized certain actions of the defendants at the trial as "amazing," referring to one of th3 defendants who gave the Nazi salute to the American flag in the court-room and when asked if that was the American salute, replied "No, but it will be." The specific charge acused leaders of the league—an affiliate of the German-American Bund which claims 400,000 members—of conducting a secret oath-taking sock'-. (Continued on Page Six)
