National Chairman
Denounces Winrod
Topeka, Kansas, (WNS)The
Rev. Gerald B. Winrod, Wichita
anti-Semite minister, who is seek-
\:< the Republican senatorial nom-
ination in the August second pri-
maries, on an anti-Jewish plat-
form, suffered an important set-
lack with the publication here of
a letter from John D. M. Hamil-
ton. Republican National Chair-
man and native Kansan, warning
Kansas Republicans against vot-
ing for Winrod. Publication of
Hamilton's letter coincided with a
joint effort by 41 Republican lead-
er-, headed by William Allen
White, Emporia editor, to rally
sentiment against Winrod. Ham-
ilton's letter, addressed to a voter
in Kansas, reads as follows:
"There has never been a time in
the history of our party when it
has been more necessary to have
men of character and ability on
our ticket than now and I have
every confidence that the Repub-
lican voters of our State will ex-
sound judgment in the selec-
tions which they make on August
2. It is impossible for me to
separate myself in my capacity as
a voter in Topeka and as the Re-
publican national chairman. For
that reason I do not believe that
it would be fitting for me to ex-
press a preference as to those
whose names will appear upon the
primary ballot of my party. This
does not, however, preclude me
from expressing what has been
uppermost in my mind for the last
few weeks.
'Kansas came into being during
lod of a great national crisis.
Among the issues which confront-
ed the country at that time was
of tolerance toward men, and
State Constitution was adopt-1
cd on the side of tolerance. I have
never regretted the stand which I
took from 1924 to 1928, both as
a candidate for public office and
member of the Kansas Legis-
against the Ku Klux Klan.
Once again intolerance has raised
its head in the midst of our politi-
cal picture and the voters of our
annot avoid the issue wheth-
er they will or not. It is there and
it is apparent to every one who
has given the slightest thought to
Kansas politics this year.
"If Mr. Winrod is nominated for
the I'nited States Senate, it will
again be injected into the national
campaign and our party in Kansas
will he on the wrong side of a vi-
tne and opposed to our party
policy in other States. We have
all been shocked by the manifes-
tations of intolerance growing up
in the world elsewhere and we
should be more than shocked at
its appearance on our very door-
step, and therefore, doubly vigli-
lant. For that reason I am quite
willing that my views should be
known upon this question as should
the views of all the leaders of our
party in Kansas. Should I have
the opportunity of voting on Au-
gust 2, as a Republican acting in
the interests of my party and my
ROOSEVELT MAY
ADDRESS VETS
Detroit. (WSS)To the Jewish
War Veterans of the United States
may fall the distinction of being
the first Jewish organization to
be addressed by President Roose-
velt in person it was revealed
here this week by Samuel J. Leve,
general chairman of the 43rd
national J. W. V. Convention com-
mittee.
Mr. Leve announced receipt of
word from the White House that
the President would address J. W.
V.'s 43rd national convention, to
be held in Detroit September 2nd
to 5th, if his schedule brings him
near Detroit at that time.
The President is due to dedicate
a bridge linking Michigan and
Canada at the end of August. Mr
Leve said 10,000 delegates are ex-
pected at the convention, the first
to be held in the Middle West.
country, I certainly would not vote
for any one who has dedicated
himself to a course of intolerance
such as has Mr. Winrod. If the
reasons which I have given above
for not voting for Mr. Winrod,
which are all-sufficient as far as
I am concerned, do not appeal to
others in Kansas, may I ask them
to consider the possible disastrous
effects which h i s nomination
would have upon the entire State
and local Republican tickets in No-
vember."
In reply to Hamilton and other
Kansas leaders who have accused
him of being a Nazi propagandist
and of getting campaign funds
from German, Winrod said: "I
don't get money from Germany.
I am not anti-Catholic. I am not
against the Jews as a race or re-
ligion. I only oppose the interna-
tional Jews to whom we are in-
debted for the scourge of inter-
national Communism. I am not
unfriendly to Free Masonry. I
oppose the little group of New
York bureaus of which the Fed-
eral Council of Churches is large-
ly composed, because it is attempt-
ing to put across a program of
left wing radicalism and Social-
ism in the United States, thus
prostituting as many pulpits as
will yield to its propaganda. The
insinuation that I have Fascists or
Nazi inclinations was not uttered
in sincerity, and is too absurd to
be considered seriously. I de-
nounce it as an outright false-
hood."
Winrod also declared that Ham-
ilton acted "under great pressure
from certain powerful interests in
making his attack on my candi-
dacy," and charged that a million
dollars "from Eastern sources" is
"now being unloaded in Kansas"
to "try and bring about my de-
feat."
REFUGEE 1110
COMMITTEE
HAS MEETIWG
Paris, (WNS)Ways and means
of winning Germany's coopera-
tion in the efforts to further the
emigration of German refugees
will be the principal subject on the
agenda of the first meeting of the
newly created permanent intergov-
ernmental refugee committee in
London on August 3rd, it was re-
vealed by American delegates who
have been devoting themselves to
this problem.
One American delegate admitted
frankly that the "plan will not
work without Berlin's coopera-
tion." He said that great pres-
sure is being brought to bear upon
the Reich to relax its stringent
regulations prohibiting emigres
from taking their property with
them. George L. Brandt, Ameri-
can consul, who has been investi-
gating the refugee problem in
Germany since the close of the
Evian conference on July 15th, has
returned to Paris and is ready to
submit a report to the London
meeting.

TO FOLLOW NAZIS

won over Italy to anti-Semitism,
the Nazi government is exporting
Japan, the third member of the
Rome-Berlin-Tokio Axis, t, join
the International Nazi offensive
against the Jews, acording to au-
thoritative reports in Nazi circles.
Plans for the extension of anti-
Semitism to Japan and Japanese-
ruled Manchukuo are expected to
be discussed next month when
Tesuo Hisada, Japanese 'ditor,
and Dr. Ishi Bashi, head of the
German-Japanese Medical Society,
are due to arrive in Berlin for a
study of the Jewish question.
Meanwhile, Japanese residents in
Berlin are being quietly warned
not to patronize Jewish shops nor
to employ Jews and are being
urged to move if they have Jew-
ish landlords.
Hints of a renewed anti-Jewish
drive on a worldwide scale wer
conveyed by Dr. Alfred Rosenberg,
philosopher of the Nazi movement,
in an article in the Voelkischer
Beobaehter, official party organ,
in which he reported that anti-
Semitism is growing satisfactorily
in many countries, especially '.n
Hungary and Poland. He declar
ed that there were also encourag-
ing manifestations of anti-Semit
ism in the United States, Franca
and Great Britain.
"Kill Jews" Signs

gogue were smeared witn swas-
tikas painted in red paint and tar.
Swastikas were also painted on

tinued cooperation on the part of

Meetings of the Executive Board

Detroit, (WNS)Denying he
had any anti-Semitic intent in
publishing a series of articles on
the spurious "Protocols of the El-
ders of Zion" in his magazine.
Social Justice, Father Charles E.
Coughlin, reiterated in a two-hour
interview with Philip Slomovitz,
editor of the Detroit Jewish Chron-
icle, and former Judge James I.
Ellman, that he is not anti-Semi-
tic, and that he abhors anti-Semi
tism and is kindly disposed toward
the Jews, but resents the attacks
made upon him in the Jewish
press, insisting that there was no
justification for calling him an
anti-Semite every time he selected
a Jewish name for criticism. The
meeting was held in the rectory
office of the Shrine of the Little
Flower on July 13th in response
to a telegram from Slomovitz of-
fering to prove to the radio priest
the libelous character of the ''Pro-
tocols." The interview, which
was informalFather Coughlin
receiving his guests in shirtsleeves
and without collaris to be con
tinued next week.
Father Coughlin justified publi-
cation of the articles on the "Pro-
tocols" in the following words:
"Their authenticity has not been
proven, which means they are not
authentic. I am not publishing
them as Jewish creations and am
emphasizing the fact that the vast
Jewish masses know nothing about
them. I am not charging Jews
with authorship of them. I am
merely using them for their con-
tent, to prove that there is a plot
to engulf the world in a scheme
of things predicted in the "Proto-
cols" and now coming true in Rus-
sia and in this country under the
New Deal. I repeat that I do not
care anything at all about authen-
ticity of the "Protocols" but am
concerned only with the contents.''
After Slomovitz and Ellman had
pointed out to him that the "Pro-
tocols" has been proven forgeries,
that the coupling of them with
the Jewish name had brought im-
measurable harm to the Jewish
people no matter what qualifying
statements are appended to them,
Father Coughlin invited Slomovitz
to prepare a reply to the articles
on the "Protocols" for publication
in a' forthcoming issue of Social
Justice.
After Ellmann had pointed out
why Jews are naturally sensitive
over matters affecting their sta-
tus. Father Coughlin pooh-poohed
the idea of an anti-Semitic danger
in this country, expressed the
view that "it can never happen
antidote for hatred, while assert-
ing that Jews ought to be less
here" and advised ridicule as an
fearful and less sensitive. At the
same time he insisted that Jew-;
continue to play a dominant role
in international finance. Challen-
ged by his interviewers on this as-
sertion, he maintained he could
prove it, but then amended it by
saying that Jews play a role in
excess of their numbers. At this
point Ellmann raised the question

I WRITE AS I
PLEASE
If ever there was a time when
there should be unity amongst all
of us, this is the time. Wherever
we go, whatever we do, all of us
should realize that "in unity there
is strength." The phrase "Kol
Yisroel Chaverim" all of Israel
are brethren" should be made to
be something living, not a mere
thought. If this message, the
message of unity, working togeth-
er in harmony, trying to do things
to benefit the people at large,
could be gotten across to our peo-
ple of Greater Miami, then we
would not have to worry about our
future. This is what must be con-
sidered by all.
Plain Talk
By AL SEGAL
Dear Mr. Segal :Though no Jew,
I am a reader of your column.
With utmost respect may I ask
you: Is there any good reason why
the Jews should continue to exist
as a minority people and suffer as
they do? Aren't you too clannish,
holding yourself apart from other
groups. By absorption into other
race groups your problem would
be solved while the mixture of
grandchildren certainly would be
relieved of many of the problems
which beset me, their Jewish great
grandfather.
My Scotch-Irish great grandson
might aspire even for the presi-
dency of the United States, an ele-
vation which is far beyond the
reach of my ambition, since I am
a Jew. Or, even more, he might
attain membership in the Mineha-
Rabbis ? ? ? 1 1 ? 7
Most of us were startled to see the screaming headlines in
the daily papers "Rabbi heads dope ring" and similarly em-
oellished articles regarding the arrest in Paris of a "Grand
Rabbi" Leifer oi Brooklyn, N. Y. The story told in vivid
terms how this so-called Rabbi used holy scrolls, and other re-
ligious articles lor the concealment of narcotics-
Nat ur ally this story was and is being used to show how
depraved our people are. Perhaps a more careful investigation
of such a news item by the daily papers would have disclosed,
as did the accoun'. in the New York Times that there never
existed such a Raobi as this Leifer in Brooklyn. Of course,
every Jew knows or should know that there is no such thing as
"GRAND RABBI." The Jewish people have no such terms,
though from time to time some misguided individuals have
translated the idiomatic Yiddish phrase "guter Yid" to mean
Grand Rabbi.
The sooner the responsible leaders of American Jewry
'nake up their mind to prevent the use of a term such as
"Rabbi" by those not properly entitled to it, the sooner will
our people be guarded against news stories of the kind that ap-
peared this week. There are many free lancers, many men who
were Hebrew teachers, many men who are shochtim, many who
because they are solicitors of charitable institutions or Yeshi-
vos call themselves "Rabbis," though they at no time have
the right thereto.
It is high time that the recognized institutions of higher
Jewish learning in the United States, together with the lay-
Lien "s organization representing the Orthodox, Conservative
and Reform wings of Jewry take definite steps to put an end
to this evil. If necessary to invoke legislation for this purpose
11 should be done.
Suoh action on the part of responsible Rabbinate and laity
will bring about that respect for the term "Rabbi" that it
should in reality invoke.
If the "Champagne Careman*
would be left alone by a "Painless

E. D. T.
If a certain young Barrister who
is trying to do his part for the
welfare of "our race" and take his
work more seriously by attending
meetings on time (E. S. T. time
rather the J. T.Jewish time) it
would help him considerably to
keep up with proceedings and
eliminate his face getting red and
become excited.
Dear E. D. T.: I am, of course,
flattered by your proposal in be-
half of your daughter. However, I
may not on the spur of the mo-
ment say Yes but must give my
mind to a solemn consideration of
the whole matter: Should I, for
the sake of the safety of my gen-
erations, give my hand and heart
to your daughter?
As one who gives thought to
the welfare even of his great
grandchildren I am inclined to fav

It would be laughable if it were not so serious, to consider
the high and mighty attitude, the indifference shown by some
l our people regarding the wave of anti-Semitism which we
must face and overcome.
Some months ago vandals painted swastikas on one syna-
gogue building; last week vandals placed similar signs and con-
temptible writings on another synagogue building. Stickers
have been placed from time to time depicting our people in un-
speakable delineations. And despite all this, some of our Jews
continue to exhibit an indifference that is appalling.
Were it not for the confidential nature of its work, a state-
ment from the anti-Defamation committee of the B'nai B nth
as to what is going on in this Sate, would shock our people
ino action. Yei this cannot be done
We reprint HI article appearing in the Miami Daily News
last Wednesday which speaks for itself.
NOW KANSAS
While the country gasps over the crooner-cornered
Texas governorship, comes Kansas with a variation of the
theme. Coining up in the Republican primaries is a fas-
cist candidate for United States Senator. Like Gerald
Smith, sidekick of the late Huey Long and now operating
a fascist-looking drive of his own, the Kansas totalitarian
tacks a "Rev." handle to his name. His name is Winrod,
and he is on Ul way.
The Kansas technique of the Kansas Hitler is the per-
fectly familiar thing. The first ptsp in getting support for
a fascist drive is to pick on some helpless object to which
to direct the people's hate. Hitler picked the Jews. Later
he added the communists, and now all Christian churches
are under his ban. Wily Winrod of Kansas has directed
his aim at two minorities not numerically powerful in Car-
rie Nation's old state, the Catholics and the Jews. His
spreading of the gospel of hate has shown sufficient sign
of success to arouse alarm among responsible Republicans
in the state. William Allen White, revered liberal Em-
poria editor, has been sounding the alarm with all his voice,
Chairman John Hamilton has denounced the candidate.
Yet there is a clear chance that Winrod, running in a di-
vided field, may win the nomination which he seeks-
This, as White points out, would end Republican hopes
in the Landon state. Whether Winrod won or lost, Kan-
sas Republicanism would be sunk.
Kansas is a literate state. We think, surely Kansas
cannot fall for anything as outlandish and disreputable as
this. Then we remember Kansas' goat gland almost-gov-
ernor of less than a decade agoand wonder. Dr. Brink-
ley of goat gUnd fame, running on his own with only a
radio station at his back came within a scratch of carrying
Kansas then. Indeed, there were whispers that had all his
votes been counted he might have found himself in. We
would like to have more confidence in Kansas now; but
with the goat gland nightmare so lately laid, can one be so
sure the state where John Brown battled will not fall for
this nation's first furious fascist putsch?
fox hunt.
Or, on top of everything, he
could get into the best Newport,
(R. I.) hotel and delight his heart
with the awareness that he is pay-
ing $100 a day for his quarters
and in standing at the peak of hu-
man elevation.
In short, my Scotch-Irish great
grandson would be an accepted
man, unlike his Jewish great-grand
father who can't even get into the
Hiawatha Club which is less than
the Minehaha Club.
My descendant could become
even president of the General
Doorknobs Corporation (capital
$1,000,000,000) which, as every-
body knows, doesn't take Jews even
to be clerks. As president of the
General Doorknobs Corporation he
might swing a stock-swindle
which would get him into jail but
nobody would say it was all due
to his Scotch-Irish ancestry. He
would be privileged to suffer his
sin all to himself.
His Jewish great grandfather is
always feeling troubled because of
being made to carry the sins of
other Jews; since the sin of one
Jew is visited upon all others. ..
"That's the Jew for you," they
say.
Certainly, as my ghost looked
upon the privileges of my Scotch-
Irish great grandson I should have
to be grateful to you, my dear E.
D. T., for having let me marry
your daughter.
Recently one of the Senatorial candidates in Florida cam-
paigned on a platform similar in nature though not nearly as
virulent and violent as Winrod. The Rev. Winrod will be re-
membered as one who set himself up in the Buena Vista school
to try and preach anti-Semitism but was driven from this city
by the vigilance of the local B'nai B'rith whose protest to the
School Board resnlted in Winrod's ouster.
We suggest an awakening on the part of some of our in-
different people. Perhaps "it can happen here."
Yet there is another side. My

of Jewish domination in certain
professions, declaring that Jewish
successes in certain callings are
occasioned by pressure from with-
out, not from within. To this
Father Coughlin said: "Jews are
not the dumbest people in the
world," and "there is nothing
wrong with domination in certain
fields of endeavor."
The interviewers reported that
the radio priest's major challenge
to Jewry was that Jews must unite
with him and with the Catholic
Church in fighting Communism as
vigorously as they oppose Nazism
and Fascism. Ellmann was equal-
ly emphatic in pointing out that
in Russia, at least, anti-Semitism
is labelled a crime. In reply to
the charge that Jews do not battle
Communism, the interviewers cal-
led Father Coughliu's attention to
numerous declarations by Jews
and Jewish organizations condemn-
ing Communism, and presente.l
him with copies of these pro-
nouncements. This interview wa*
the second Slomovitz had with
Father Coughlin, the first having
occurred in November 1934.

in the nine sorrowful days that
commemorate the destruction of

when so much sad news prevails in
everything Jewish, it is both time-

full measure the spirit of these
days. Children should be taught
to abstain from places of enter-
tainment and amusements during
the week of Tishe B'ab.

Civil versus National Rights
THE CZECHOSLOVAKIA CRISIS TEACHES JEWS A LESSON
(By WILLIAM ZUKERMAN)
After first joining with Poles,
Hungarians and other minorities
in Czechoslovakia in demanding
national autonomy, the Jews of
that country hare now abandon-
ed that demand. Why? Mr.
Zukerman answers that question
in another of his clearly thought
out dispatches from Europe.
THE EDITOR
One of the few advantages of
the numerous crises in Europe at
the present time is that occassion-
ally, without intention, and almost
against the will of their chief ac-
tors, they sometimes help to solve
old and difficult problems which
had stubbornly refused to be solv-
ed. Europe is now in a state of
great oxperimentation. In the po-
litical laboratories of the nations
great tests are being made which
would not be attempted in peace-
ful times, and the results are of
vital interest and concern to the
various people. Occasionally it
happens that such a test serves a
useful purpose also for the Jews.
An interesting test of this kind
has now been made in Czechoslo-
vakia.
This test was least of all in-
tended for the Jews. It was con-
cerned chiefly and almost exclu-
sively with the German minority
in Czechoslovakia, the so-called
Sudeten Germans who live in Bo-
hemia. Hitler claims that they
are Germans and that they must
be incorporated into the German
Reich. But this is not such an
easy task. Czechoslovakia, with-
out the coal mines and the iron ore
of Bohemia and without the moun-
tainous frontiers of that country,
is, from the military standpoint,
open to German attack on every
side. From the economic stand-
point, it is an impossible unit
which would be doomed to col-
lapse within a short period. The
Czechs have therefore decided to
offer reaistence to a Nazi invas-
ion and to any attempt at an Ans-
chluss of Bohemia with the Third
Reich similar to that of Austria.
Hitler, having realized that the
Czechs were in earnest about their
decision to defend their country,
gave way and postponed the 'put-
sch' indefinitely. And in the mean
time the Czech Government has
decided to grant the Sudeten Ger-
mans a great measure of national
autonomy to satisfy their legiti-
mate nationalistic claims.
But once this question of nat-
ional autonomy was raised for the
Germans, other nationalities in
Czechoslovakia such as the Poles
and the Hungarians, have also
raised claims to similar conces-
sions. If Sudeten Germans are to
have national autonomy, why not
Poles and Hungarians? The Czech-
oslovakian Government realized
the justice of these demands (and
maybe it was not all mere justice,
but partly also pressure) and is
now preparing a new nationality
law whjch will give each minority
within its borders the widest pos-
sible autonomy in cultural, econo-
mic and political affairs.
It is at this point that the Jews
come in. Jews too, are a national
minority in Chechoslovakia. There
are over 1S0.0OO Jews in the coun-
try and 100,000 of these live in
compact masses in the province of
Carpatho-Russio. The rest are
scattered in the big towns of
Czechoslovakia, chiefly Prague.
Why should not the Jews too, be
included in the new measure for
national autonomy? The demand
seems plausible, particularly to
Jews of a nationalistic trend of
mind (and most Jews in Eastern
Europe are now of that trend,)
and an organized movement spranS
up to exert pressure on the Czech-
oslovakian Government to extend
the newly proposed measure to
include Jews.
It was, of course, natural that
the Zionists should be the prime
movers of the movement. A pro-
gram was prepared which demand-
ed (1) That all the Hebrew schools
"Chedorim" and "Yeshivas" in
the country should be made state
schools and supported entirely by
the government, (2) that the gov-
ernment should launch a system of
training of Jewish young men
with a view to preparing them for
economic positions and employ-
ment, (3) that the government
"hould support the Jewish commu-
nities together with their elabor-
ate system of religious and social
services. The demands seemed
feasible enough and pressure was
brought on the Czechoslovakian
government to bring them into ef-
fect.
But it was at this time that dif-
fiiulties set in. According to the
underlying principle of national
autonomy upon which the new
measure of the Czech Government
is based, each nationality in the
state is to receive proportionate
representation in the economic, ad-
ministrative and cultural positions
of the country. Since Jews form
four percent of the enofre popula
tion of Czechoslovakia, they ar.
therefore entitled to four percen
of all government positions as wel
as of agricultural, industrial, com
mercial and professional posts
This is the basis of national au
tonomy. But it so happens tha
the Jews in Czechoslovakia (a
well as in many other countries)
while they do not occupy four per

cent of state positions, neverthe-
less occupy 70 percent of the com-
mercial and professional positions
in the country. If the Jews were
to insist on a strict status of nat-
ional autonomy they would, in-
deed, be entitled to state support
of their Hebrew schools, of the
communities and to a proportion-
ate representation in the govern-
ment. But they would also have
to be limited to four percent in
commercial and in professional
positions which would mean an
economic ruin similar to, if not
worse than that effected now in
Nazi Germany.
The demands for national rights
were, therefore, quickly dropped
even by the Zionist sponsors of
the scheme. Jewish leaders are
now negotiating with the govern-
ment for the inclusion in the state
budget of the Hebrew schools in
Carpatho-Russia and for other
similar concessions. But the gen-
eral demand for national autono-
my for the Jews has been given
up. Jews of all parties, even of
the most advanced nationalistic
program, have come to the con-
clusion that the older, democratic
status of Equal Civil Rights for
the Jews suits, the Jewish position
in Czechoslovakia beter than the
newer status of national rights.
The new nationality law in Czech-
oslovakia will, therefore, deal with
all nationalities, but not with the
Jews. With the consent of the
Jews themselves, they will be
treated as equal citizens of the
country, not as a distinct minority,
group.
The lesson of this incident is ob-
vious. Czechoslovakia is the clas-
sic land of national minorities. In
no other country is the need of
national rights so obvious and
their realization so easy. If there
is a place in the world where nat-
ional autonomy for Jews could
reasonably be expected to function,
it is Czechoslovakia. And yet
even in this country, where the
theory of national autonomy was
born and perfected, it has proved
to be impossible of realization as
far as the Jews are concerned.
For the Jews, although they
form a separate nationality are
nevertheless not a nationality of
the same type as the Poles, the
Germans, the Hungarians, the
Croats and the numerous other
national groups in Europe. They

are a unique nationality which
does not form a separate economic
or territorial group in any coun-
try in the world (Palestine ex-
cluded.) Not only have they no
territorial state of their own, but
even in these countries where tMJF
live in compact masses, as in Pol-
and and in some other places, they
are not an economic entity inde-
pendent of the rest of the popula-
tion of the country. Territorially,!
as well as economically, Jews are
part and parcel of the rest of r.he
populations of the states they live
in and cannot be separated /run
them. No amount of theorizing
about being a nation and being I
entitled to national rights like'
others is of any avail. For even
if Jews are a nation (and this,|
too, is doubtful) they are a nation
of a different kind to whic.ii the
usual national thories do not ap-
ply. Whether we want it or not,
we Jews depend for our existence
upon the democratic principle of
the French Revolution of equal
civil rights, not upon th* more
modern principles of national
rights. We are citizens of the
states we live in, not a MptMto
national group. National differen-
tiation and separation even of the
r.iost positive kind work ijq* to
our detriment.
This is what the recent crisis in
Czechoslovakia has clearly demon-
strated.

In fact, he may be a poor man
on WPA (as many a Scotch-Irish
is) and feel no safety at all in the
worldno more than I, his great-
grandfather who am a Jew now
feel. Oh, it would be one pain af-
ter another for him and if I re-
ceive stones of prejudice on my
poor head (as Jews often do) my
Scotch-Irish great grandson would
be bashed in other ways by the
vicissitudes of the economic order.
If he couldn't pay the rent he
would be out on the street in the
rain with his several sticks of fur-
niture and his children; if the re-
lief voucher didn't come on time
there wouldn't be anything to eat
in his house.
Yes, he might not be either a
very rich or a very poor Scotch-
Irish but merely a modestly com-
fortable one in a rather humble
house with a lawn in the suburbs.
He would be a salesman who would
be troubled every day on account
of his job, what with the sales
manager being so arrogant, as
sales managers often are.
"Ferguson" (that might be my
great grandson's name,) "Fergu-I
son," the sales manager would say
truculently, "You're falling down,
you're falling down. You aren't
making the sales quota this week.
You must sell 1000 refriger Uors
this week and you've sold or.ly
996. Watch your step, Fer/vison."
My poor, worried grandson!
Though he is a Scotch-I'isi. in-
stead of a Jew he is still WWafl
and troubled.
What I am trying to say, my
dear E. D. T., is that there is pain
for Scotch-Irishmen as well as for
Jews and that there is no secur-
ity, unless one be of the Minehaha
fox-hunters in red coats who are
quite rare anyway. (And I am
not really sure that I want my
great grandson to be of the idle
rich.)
So my problem is this: Which
pains shall I confer upon my great
grandsonthe simple pains of a
Scotch-Irishman or 'he mor? com-
plicated pains of a Jew who suf-
fers all the common pains and his
own exclusive pains bes>d>->? It
seems just a matter of trading one
pain for another of the many that
afflict the human-kind.
Well, I answer, if my great
grandson is a Jew, he wii' ut least
know why he suffers that port of
his pain that has to do wi'.h his
being Jewish. "For being a
Jew, for being faithful to the
things that are Jewish I am suf-
fering this," he may say That's
something."
For other people there isn't even
that much satisfaction for their
pains which are not to be under-
stood since they make no sense.
The pain of poverty, the pain '
the righteous defeated while the
wicked flourish, the pain of dis-
ease. ... My great grandson (if
he is a Jew) will suffer all these
pains but he will also have the bit
of balm which comforts the pain
of being Jewish. ""Yes, be-

plans but suffice it to say that
there will be something for every-
body. Mr. Grosman plans to put
on a popular Broadway play and
is at present negotiating to obtain

Y. TO HONOR GROSSMAN
WITH HUGE RECEPTION
When Dr. Harold Rand in last
week's column stated that the
most important bit of action taken
by the new Board of Directors
was the securing of an executive
director, he said a mouthful.
Mr. Maurice Grossman, the man
chosen for this most important
position is the man of the hour as
far as the populace of the Greater
Miami area and membership of
the Y. M. H. A., are concerned.
Upon delving into his life his-
tory the following data will un-
doubtedly interest you. Mr. Mau-
rice Grossman, newly appointed
Executive Director of the Y. M.
H. A., was born December 31,
1893 in Allentown, Pa. Son of the
late Rabbi Goodman Grossman of
Allentown. Graduate of Allen-
town high school, Muhlenberg Col-
lege, A. B., Allentown, George-
town University, L L B., Wash-
ington, D. C. Served with Quar-
termaster Corps during World
War. Was Executive Director of
Plainfield, N. J. 'Y.' Guest lecturer
New Jersey State Troopers Train-
ing School. Practiced law in New
Jersey for 17 years. Acting police
judge. President of Sons of Is-
rael Synagogue of Arlington, N. J..
and chairman of its board of edu-
cation. Counsel International As-
sociation Chiefs of Police. Is
member of the following organi-
zations: American Legion, Benev-
olent and Protective Order of
Elks, Freda Markowitz Post, Jew-
ish War Veterans, Miami Philoso-J
pher's Club and B'nai B'rith. Hm
been active in communal work for
the past 25 years. As for athle-
tics, has played football at high
school and college and is a very
ardent sports enthusiast.
Nat Blumberg has been made
chairman of a committee consist-
ing of Mrs. Sam Shindell, Gertrude
Mandell, Mrs. William Friedman,
Mrs. M. Shenkman, Milton A.
Friedman, Alvin Grossman, Al
Rosenfeld, Dr. Harold Rand, Hy-
men Merlin and Harry Schwartz
to outline plans for a gala recep-
tion to be held in honor of our new
executive director, Maurice Gross-
man.
The date of this affair has been
set for Wednesday, August 10th,
at the "Y" clubrooms. Invitations
have been sent out to all the Rab-
bis and to the presidents of all
the organizations of the Greater
Miami area. We cordially tender
each and every one of you an invi-
tation through this medium.

The second lecture on Pak-stintl
was given by Dr. A. Wolf son last
Saturday afternoon before t|,J

Palestine that one is never likely I
to forget," Dr. Wolfson toi.l his
audience, "is the descent from je. I
rusalem, twenty-six hundred feetl
above the sea level to the plain of I
Jericho, the lowest part of the I
earth, thirteen hundred feet belovl
sea level. Practically the wholel

and mansilent, solitary, humblj
and faithful. Perhaps the Anal

tains into the air. Or is it her

Dr. Wolfson was so impressed
with the eloquent plea for increasl
ed Jewish cultural activities iij
Greater Miami, made by Mr.
Louis Shochet over the radio las|
Sunday morning, that he decide
to continue for the rest of the yea

this."
Oh, Mr. E. D. T., there is Rome
consolation in that for a Jew while
a Scotch-Irishman has no explana-
tion to rationalize his pains.
Not that I am rejecting your
daughter. I am merely thinking
what is best for the boy. I shall
give further thought to the mat-
ter. However, the problem is fur-
ther complicated by the fact that
I am already married, have been,
in fact, for many years.
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 01 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-
Ste of Double-Mellow Old Gold
igarettes 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-
J* Jacket opens from the bottom
the Inner Jacket opens from the top.
Old Gold Cigarettes are further
protected by the fart that an air
chamber is formed between the 2
Jackets of Cellophane, thus giving
the package of Double-Mellow Old
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
palfr ,PackaRe 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
smoke.

PAGE EIGHT THE JEWISH PLORIDIAN FRIDAY, JULY 29, 1933 TfUumL TbJbu. By HARRY SCHWARTZ Hello again. Now that I am a full fledged member of the Ball and Chain Society I am doubly happy to return to my writing chores and resume where my buddies Milt Friedman, Al Grossman, Doc Beckman and Doc Rand so splendidly carried on. Thanks fellows and I sincerely hope that in the very near future I can reciprocate. Program are Literary, Dramatic Clubs, Debating Club, Current Events Club. Lectures by the professional men of the "Y" on the contribution of the Jew to the respective professions. Spelling bees, lectures by distinguished visitors during the season. Plans to foster and promote athletics in all the branches, particularly among the younger members. One of the main features will be a social program that is different. I am not at liberty at present to divulge the nature of the plans but suffice it to say that there will be something for everybody. Mr. Grosman plans to put on a popular Broadway play and is at present negotiating to obtain permission from the copywright owners. Y. TO HONOR GROSSMAN WITH HUGE RECEPTION When Dr. Harold Rand in last week's column stated that the most important bit of action taken by the new Board of Directors was the securing of an executive director, he said a mouthful. Mr. Maurice Grossman, the man chosen for this most important position is the man of the hour as far as the populace of the Greater Miami area and membership of the Y. M. H. A., are concerned. Upon delving into his life history the following data will undoubtedly interest you. Mr. Maurice Grossman, newly appointed Executive Director of the Y. M. H. A., was born December 31, 1893 in Allentown, Pa. Son of the late Rabbi Goodman Grossman of Allentown. Graduate of Allentown high school, Muhlenberg College, A. B., Allentown, Georgetown University, L L B., Washington, D. C. Served with Quartermaster Corps during World War. Was Executive Director of Plainfield, N. J. 'Y.' Guest lecturer New Jersey State Troopers Training School. Practiced law in New Jersey for 17 years. Acting police judge. President of Sons of Israel Synagogue of Arlington, N. J.. and chairman of its board of education. Counsel International Association Chiefs of Police. Is member of the following organizations: American Legion, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Freda Markowitz Post, Jewish War Veterans, Miami Philoso-J pher's Club and B'nai B'rith. HM been active in communal work for the past 25 years. As for athletics, has played football at high school and college and is a very ardent sports enthusiast. Nat Blumberg has been made chairman of a committee consisting of Mrs. Sam Shindell, Gertrude Mandell, Mrs. William Friedman, Mrs. M. Shenkman, Milton A. Friedman, Alvin Grossman, Al Rosenfeld, Dr. Harold Rand, Hymen Merlin and Harry Schwartz to outline plans for a gala reception to be held in honor of our new executive director, Maurice Grossman. The date of this affair has been set for Wednesday, August 10th, at the "Y" clubrooms. Invitations have been sent out to all the Rabbis and to the presidents of all the organizations of the Greater Miami area. We cordially tender each and every one of you an invitation through this medium. 26th to be exact our diamondball heroes then known as the Hebrew Athletic Club engaged in a 23 inning; nightmare that today is recognized as the longest diamondball game played in the world. The Opa-Locka aggregation, their opponents on this occasion emerged victors by a score of 7 to 6. It is interesting to note the players that comprised the "Y" lineup of that year—Alvin Grossman, Ralph Gilman, Normy Thaler, Nat Blumberg, George Reichgott, Norman Ruben, Abe Schoenfeld, Mickey Lubel, Jimmy Miller, Beraie Frank Nat Kupper and Maxie Schemer.

I WRITE AS I PLEASE If ever there was a time when there should be unity amongst all of us, this is the time. Wherever we go, whatever we do, all of us should realize that "in unity there is strength." The phrase "Kol Yisroel Chaverim" all of Israel are brethren" should be made to be something living, not a mere thought. If this message, the message of unity, working together in harmony, trying to do things to benefit the people at large, could be gotten across to our people of Greater Miami, then we would not have to worry about our future. This is what must be considered by all. Plain Talk By AL SEGAL Dear Mr. Segal :Though no Jew, I am a reader of your column. With utmost respect may I ask you: Is there any good reason why the Jews should continue to exist as a minority people and suffer as they do? Aren't you too clannish, holding yourself apart from other groups. By absorption into other race groups your problem would be solved while the mixture of grandchildren certainly would be relieved of many of the problems which beset me, their Jewish great grandfather. My Scotch-Irish great grandson might aspire even for the presidency of the United States, an elevation which is far beyond the reach of my ambition, since I am a Jew. Or, even more, he might attain membership in the MinehaRabbis ? ? ? 1 1 ? 7 Most of us were startled to see the screaming headlines in the daily papers "Rabbi heads dope ring" and similarly emoellished articles regarding the arrest in Paris of a "Grand Rabbi" Leifer oi Brooklyn, N. Y. The story told in vivid terms how this so-called Rabbi used holy scrolls, and other religious articles lor the concealment of narcoticsNat ur ally this story was and is being used to show how depraved our people are. Perhaps a more careful investigation of such a news item by the daily papers would have disclosed, as did the accoun'. in the New York Times that there never existed such a Raobi as this Leifer in Brooklyn. Of course, every Jew knows or should know that there is no such thing as "GRAND RABBI." The Jewish people have no such terms, though from time to time some misguided individuals have translated the idiomatic Yiddish phrase "guter Yid" to mean Grand Rabbi. The sooner the responsible leaders of American Jewry 'nake up their mind to prevent the use of a term such as "Rabbi" by those not properly entitled to it, the sooner will our people be guarded against news stories of the kind that appeared this week. There are many free lancers, many men who were Hebrew teachers, many men who are shochtim, many who because they are solicitors of charitable institutions or Yeshivos call themselves "Rabbis," though they at no time have the right thereto. It is high time that the recognized institutions of higher Jewish learning in the United States, together with the layLien "s organization representing the Orthodox, Conservative and Reform wings of Jewry take definite steps to put an end to this evil. If necessary to invoke legislation for this purpose 11 should be done. Suoh action on the part of responsible Rabbinate and laity will bring about that respect for the term "Rabbi" that it should in reality invoke. If the "Champagne Careman* would be left alone by a "Painless Dentist" who thinks he is a better lawyer than the 99 percent majority lawyers on the board of a newly formed organization, I believe the meetings would be more expediently conducted and some of the good natured soda-dispensing members would not be hi-jacked of drinks to keep the assembly cool, by the "Master" who knows how to talk them out of it. bloods would serve to improve the ha Fox Hunt Club (which is really FO-called Aryan breed. You would very swell, what with the red coats cease to exist as a people but the they wear on fox hunts.) I, as a fine qualities of the Jewish people, Jew, may not even dream of wearwould, by heredity, continue to ing a red coat in an exclusive flourish among the peoples. In order that an example may be set, I invite you (if you are' not already married) to go courting and marry one of our girls. Judging by your intellectual quality I would not hesitate to let you marry my own daughter. We are Scotch-Irish. What do you say.— E. D. T. If a certain young Barrister who is trying to do his part for the welfare of "our race" and take his work more seriously by attending meetings on time (E. S. T. time— rather the J. T.—Jewish time) it would help him considerably to keep up with proceedings and eliminate his face getting red and become excited. Dear E. D. T.: I am, of course, flattered by your proposal in behalf of your daughter. However, I may not on the spur of the moment say Yes but must give my mind to a solemn consideration of the whole matter: Should I, for the sake of the safety of my generations, give my hand and heart to your daughter? As one who gives thought to the welfare even of his great grandchildren I am inclined to fav or your proposal. If I marrie< one of the Scotch-Irish my great On Guard It would be laughable if it were not so serious, to consider the high and mighty attitude, the indifference shown by some l our people regarding the wave of anti-Semitism which we must face and overcome. Some months ago vandals painted swastikas on one synagogue building; last week vandals placed similar signs and contemptible writings on another synagogue building. Stickers have been placed from time to time depicting our people in unspeakable delineations. And despite all this, some of our Jews continue to exhibit an indifference that is appalling. Were it not for the confidential nature of its work, a statement from the anti-Defamation committee of the B'nai B nth as to what is going on in this Sate, would shock our people ino action. Yei this cannot be done We reprint HI article appearing in the Miami Daily News last Wednesday which speaks for itself. NOW KANSAS While the country gasps over the crooner-cornered Texas governorship, comes Kansas with a variation of the theme. Coining up in the Republican primaries is a fascist candidate for United States Senator. Like Gerald Smith, sidekick of the late Huey Long and now operating a fascist-looking drive of his own, the Kansas totalitarian tacks a "Rev." handle to his name. His name is Winrod, and he is on Ul way. The Kansas technique of the Kansas Hitler is the perfectly familiar thing. The first ptsp in getting support for a fascist drive is to pick on some helpless object to which to direct the people's hate. Hitler picked the Jews. Later he added the communists, and now all Christian churches are under his ban. Wily Winrod of Kansas has directed his aim at two minorities not numerically powerful in Carrie Nation's old state, the Catholics and the Jews. His spreading of the gospel of hate has shown sufficient sign of success to arouse alarm among responsible Republicans in the state. William Allen White, revered liberal Emporia editor, has been sounding the alarm with all his voice, Chairman John Hamilton has denounced the candidate. Yet there is a clear chance that Winrod, running in a divided field, may win the nomination which he seeksThis, as White points out, would end Republican hopes in the Landon state. Whether Winrod won or lost, Kansas Republicanism would be sunk. Kansas is a literate state. We think, surely Kansas cannot fall for anything as outlandish and disreputable as this. Then we remember Kansas' goat gland almost-governor of less than a decade ago—and wonder. Dr. Brinkley of goat gUnd fame, running on his own with only a radio station at his back came within a scratch of carrying Kansas then. Indeed, there were whispers that had all his votes been counted he might have found himself in. We would like to have more confidence in Kansas now; but with the goat gland nightmare so lately laid, can one be so sure the state where John Brown battled will not fall for this nation's first furious fascist putsch? fox hunt. Or, on top of everything, he could get into the best Newport, (R. I.) hotel and delight his heart with the awareness that he is paying $100 a day for his quarters and in standing at the peak of human elevation. In short, my Scotch-Irish great grandson would be an accepted man, unlike his Jewish great-grand father who can't even get into the Hiawatha Club which is less than the Minehaha Club. My descendant could become even president of the General Doorknobs Corporation (capital $1,000,000,000) which, as everybody knows, doesn't take Jews even to be clerks. As president of the General Doorknobs Corporation he might swing a stock-swindle which would get him into jail but nobody would say it was all due to his Scotch-Irish ancestry. He would be privileged to suffer his sin all to himself. His Jewish great grandfather is always feeling troubled because of being made to carry the sins of other Jews; since the sin of one Jew is visited upon all others. .. "That's the Jew for you," they say. Certainly, as my ghost looked upon the privileges of my ScotchIrish great grandson I should have to be grateful to you, my dear E. D. T., for having let me marry your daughter. Recently one of the Senatorial candidates in Florida campaigned on a platform similar in nature though not nearly as virulent and violent as Winrod. The Rev. Winrod will be remembered as one who set himself up in the Buena Vista school to try and preach anti-Semitism but was driven from this city by the vigilance of the local B'nai B'rith whose protest to the School Board resnlted in Winrod's ouster. We suggest an awakening on the part of some of our indifferent people. Perhaps "it can happen here." Yet there is another side.

To this Father Coughlin said: "Jews are not the dumbest people in the world," and "there is nothing wrong with domination in certain fields of endeavor." The interviewers reported that the radio priest's major challenge to Jewry was that Jews must unite with him and with the Catholic Church in fighting Communism as vigorously as they oppose Nazism and Fascism. Ellmann was equally emphatic in pointing out that in Russia, at least, anti-Semitism is labelled a crime. In reply to the charge that Jews do not battle Communism, the interviewers called Father Coughliu's attention to numerous declarations by Jews and Jewish organizations condemning Communism, and presente.l him with copies of these pronouncements.

ft*Jewish Floridlam %% CoMutuNG Yth<£ Jlewiisih lUiniilty P9 VOLUME 11—NUMBER 29 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JULY 29, 1938 PRICE FIVE CENTS National Chairman Denounces Winrod Topeka, Kansas, (WNS)—The Rev. Gerald B. Winrod, Wichita anti-Semite minister, who is seek\:< !" the Republican senatorial nomination in the August second primaries, on an anti-Jewish platform, suffered an important setlack with the publication here of a letter from John D. M. Hamilton. Republican National Chairman and native Kansan, warning Kansas Republicans against voting for Winrod. Publication of Hamilton's letter coincided with a joint effort by 41 Republican leader-, headed by William Allen White, Emporia editor, to rally sentiment against Winrod. Hamilton's letter, addressed to a voter in Kansas, reads as follows: "There has never been a time in the history of our party when it has been more necessary to have men of character and ability on our ticket than now and I have every confidence that the Republican voters of our State will exsound judgment in the selections which they make on August 2. It is impossible for me to separate myself in my capacity as a voter in Topeka and as the Republican national chairman. For that reason I do not believe that it would be fitting for me to express a preference as to those whose names will appear upon the primary ballot of my party. This does not, however, preclude me from expressing what has been uppermost in my mind for the last few weeks. 'Kansas came into being during lod of a great national crisis. Among the issues which confronted the country at that time was of tolerance toward men, and State Constitution was adopt-1 cd on the side of tolerance. I have never regretted the stand which I took from 1924 to 1928, both as a candidate for public office and member of the Kansas Legisagainst the Ku Klux Klan. Once again intolerance has raised its head in the midst of our political picture and the voters of our annot avoid the issue whether they will or not. It is there and it is apparent to every one who has given the slightest thought to Kansas politics this year. "If Mr. Winrod is nominated for the I'nited States Senate, it will again be injected into the national campaign and our party in Kansas will he on the wrong side of a vitne and opposed to our party policy in other States. We have all been shocked by the manifestations of intolerance growing up in the world elsewhere and we should be more than shocked at its appearance on our very doorstep, and therefore, doubly viglilant. For that reason I am quite willing that my views should be known upon this question as should the views of all the leaders of our party in Kansas. Should I have the opportunity of voting on August 2, as a Republican acting in the interests of my party and my ROOSEVELT MAY ADDRESS VETS Detroit. (WSS)—To the Jewish War Veterans of the United States may fall the distinction of being the first Jewish organization to be addressed by President Roosevelt in person it was revealed here this week by Samuel J. Leve, general chairman of the 43rd national J. W. V. Convention committee. Mr. Leve announced receipt of word from the White House that the President would address J. W. V.'s 43rd national convention, to be held in Detroit September 2nd to 5th, if his schedule brings him near Detroit at that time. The President is due to dedicate a bridge linking Michigan and Canada at the end of August. Mr Leve said 10,000 delegates are expected at the convention, the first to be held in the Middle West. country, I certainly would not vote for any one who has dedicated himself to a course of intolerance such as has Mr. Winrod. If the reasons which I have given above for not voting for Mr. Winrod, which are all-sufficient as far as I am concerned, do not appeal to others in Kansas, may I ask them to consider the possible disastrous effects which h i s nomination would have upon the entire State and local Republican tickets in November." In reply to Hamilton and other Kansas leaders who have accused him of being a Nazi propagandist and of getting campaign funds from German, Winrod said: "I don't get money from Germany. I am not anti-Catholic. I am not against the Jews as a race or religion. I only oppose the international Jews to whom we are indebted for the scourge of international Communism. I am not unfriendly to Free Masonry. I oppose the little group of New York bureaus of which the Federal Council of Churches is largely composed, because it is attempting to put across a program of left wing radicalism and Socialism in the United States, thus prostituting as many pulpits as will yield to its propaganda. The insinuation that I have Fascists or Nazi inclinations was not uttered in sincerity, and is too absurd to be considered seriously. I denounce it as an outright falsehood." Winrod also declared that Hamilton acted "under great pressure from certain powerful interests in making his attack on my candidacy," and charged that a million dollars "from Eastern sources" is "now being unloaded in Kansas" to "try and bring about my defeat." REFUGEE 1110 COMMITTEE HAS MEETI W G Paris, (WNS)—Ways and means of winning Germany's cooperation in the efforts to further the emigration of German refugees will be the principal subject on the agenda of the first meeting of the newly created permanent intergovernmental refugee committee in London on August 3rd, it was revealed by American delegates who have been devoting themselves to this problem. One American delegate admitted frankly that the "plan will not work without Berlin's cooperation." He said that great pressure is being brought to bear upon the Reich to relax its stringent regulations prohibiting emigres from taking their property with them. George L. Brandt, American consul, who has been investigating the refugee problem in Germany since the close of the Evian conference on July 15th, has returned to Paris and is ready to submit a report to the London meeting. Coughlin Admits Protocols Spurious FEDERATION ELECTS OFFICERS The Board of Directors of the Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds at a meeting last Tuesday night at the McAllister Hotel elected officers and committees for the coming year. Stanley C. Myers, four times president of the Jewish Welfare Bureau was named president; Day %  F. Apte well known communal worker and director of the First National Bank was named first vice-president; Harry Simonhoff, prominent attorney and veteran Zionist worker was chosen second vice-president; Sam Blank one of the leading merchants and promi-' ncnt in communal affairs for a' long time was named treasurer and Elry Stone, prominent attorney and president of the local B'nai B'rith Lodge was named secretary. Baron de Hirsch Meyer, Miami Beach City Councilman, and chairman of the United Jewish Appeal last year was named to the Executive Board and permanent Campaign Chairman. Members of the Executive Board will consist of the officers and R. R. Adler, Wil liam Taradash, Benjamin Bronston, Harry Sirkin, Jacob Sher, JAPAN EXPECTED TO FOLLOW NAZIS Berlin, (WNS)—Having at la won over Italy to anti-Semitism, the Nazi government is exporting Japan, the third member of the Rome-Berlin-Tokio Axis, t, join the International Nazi offensive against the Jews, acording to authoritative reports in Nazi circles. Plans for the extension of antiSemitism to Japan and Japaneseruled Manchukuo are expected to be discussed next month when Tesuo Hisada, Japanese 'ditor, and Dr. Ishi Bashi, head of the German-Japanese Medical Society, are due to arrive in Berlin for a study of the Jewish question. Meanwhile, Japanese residents in Berlin are being quietly warned not to patronize Jewish shops nor to employ Jews and are being urged to move if they have Jewish landlords. Hints of a renewed anti-Jewish drive on a worldwide scale wer conveyed by Dr. Alfred Rosenberg, philosopher of the Nazi movement, in an article in the Voelkischer Beobaehter, official party organ, in which he reported that antiSemitism is growing satisfactorily in many countries, especially '.n Hungary and Poland. He declar ed that there were also encouraging manifestations of anti-Semit ism in the United States, Franca and Great Britain. "Kill Jews" Signs Appear In London London, (WNS)—An eruption of anti-Semitic Nazi signs has appeared in many London BUOUlbrf. The words "kill the Jews,'' in letters three feet high, were carved on Bowling Green at Tottenham. The walls of the Finchley S] nagogue were smeared witn swastikas painted in red paint and tar. Swastikas were also painted on the windows of the Labor Party's committee rooms in East WiHesden. TUNE IN SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:00 The Jewish Floridian will again present another in its series of weekly broadcasts this coming Sunday morning over Station WKAT (1500 k. c.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's full of interesting news and comments and music. Harry Markowitz, Ben Le Vine, Abe Aronovitz and Mrs. Morris Plant. Members of the Budget Committee which will recommend those to share in the funds raised, and the allocations to the various organizations consist of the officers who are ex-officio members and Messrs. J. Gerald Lewis, Isaac Levin, J. Louis Shochet, Max Orovitz, M. J. Kopelowitz, Jos. M. Lipton, Leo Eisenstein, Dr. Frank Coret and Mrs. Barney Weinkle. Mr. Sam Blank, chairman of the nominating committee presented the report of x the committee which was unanimously approved. A brief speech of acceptance was made by the president. Mr. Stanley C. Myers, who appealed for continued cooperation on the part of the people of Greater Miami. Meetings of the Executive Board and the Budget Committee will be held shortly for the formulation of plans to begin the work of the organization. Detroit, (WNS)—Denying he had any anti-Semitic intent in publishing a series of articles on the spurious "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" in his magazine. Social Justice, Father Charles E. Coughlin, reiterated in a two-hour interview with Philip Slomovitz, editor of the Detroit Jewish Chronicle, and former Judge James I. Ellman, that he is not anti-Semitic, and that he abhors anti-Semi tism and is kindly disposed toward the Jews, but resents the attacks made upon him in the Jewish press, insisting that there was no justification for calling him an anti-Semite every time he selected a Jewish name for criticism. The meeting was held in the rectory office of the Shrine of the Little Flower on July 13th in response to a telegram from Slomovitz offering to prove to the radio priest the libelous character of the ''Protocols." The interview, which was informal—Father Coughlin receiving his guests in shirtsleeves and without collar—is to be con • tinued next week. Father Coughlin justified publication of the articles on the "Protocols" in the following words: "Their authenticity has not been proven, which means they are not authentic. I am not publishing them as Jewish creations and am emphasizing the fact that the vast Jewish masses know nothing about them. I am not charging Jews with authorship of them. I am merely using them for their content, to prove that there is a plot to engulf the world in a scheme of things predicted in the "Protocols" and now coming true in Russia and in this country under the New Deal. I repeat that I do not care anything at all about authenticity of the "Protocols" but am concerned only with the contents.'' After Slomovitz and Ellman had pointed out to him that the "Protocols" has been proven forgeries, that the coupling of them with the Jewish name had brought immeasurable harm to the Jewish people no matter what qualifying statements are appended to them, Father Coughlin invited Slomovitz to prepare a reply to the articles on the "Protocols" for publication in a' forthcoming issue of Social Justice. After Ellmann had pointed out why Jews are naturally sensitive over matters affecting their status. Father Coughlin pooh-poohed the idea of an anti-Semitic danger in this country, expressed the view that "it can never happen antidote for hatred, while asserting that Jews ought to be less here" and advised ridicule as an fearful and less sensitive. At the same time he insisted that Jew-; continue to play a dominant role in international finance. Challenged by his interviewers on this assertion, he maintained he could prove it, but then amended it by saying that Jews play a role in excess of their numbers. At this point Ellmann raised the question (Continued on Page Three)

Most of us were startled to see the screaming headlines in the daily papers "Rabbi heads dope ring" and similarly emoellished articles regarding the arrest in Paris of a "Grand Rabbi" Leifer oi Brooklyn, N. Y. The story told in vivid terms how this so-called Rabbi used holy scrolls, and other religious articles ior the concealment of narcoticsNaturally this story was and is being used to show how depraved our people are. Perhaps a more careful investigation of such a news item by the daily papers would have disclosed, us did the accoun'. in the New York Times that there never existed such a Raobi as this Leifer in Brooklyn. Of course, every Jew knows or should know that there is no such thing as 'GRAND RABBI." The Jewish people have no such terms, though from time to time some misguided individuals have translated the idiomatic Yiddish phrase "guter Yid" to mean Grand Rabbi. The sooner the responsible leaders of American Jewry •nake up their mind to prevent the use of a term such as "Rabbi" by those not properly entitled to it, the sooner will our people be guarded against news stories of the kind that appeared this week. There are many free lancers, many men who were Hebrew teachers, many men who are shochtim, many who because they are solicitors of charitable institutions or Yeshivos call themselves "Rabbis," though they at no time have the right thereto. It is high tiir.e that the recognized institutions of higher Jewish learning in the United States, together with the lay-j ...en's organizations representing the Orthodox, Conservative ,,nd Reform wings of Jewry take definite steps to put an end I a this evil. If necessary to invoke legislation for this purpose it should be done. Suoh action on the part of responsible Rabbinate and laity will bring about that respect for the term "Rabbi" that it should in reality invoke. On Guard It would be laughable if it were not so serious, to consider the high and mighty attitude, the indifference shown by some "f our people regarding the wave of anti-Semitism which we must face and overcome. Some months ago vandals painted swastikas on one synagogue building; last week vandals placed similar signs and contemptible writings on another synagogue building. Stickers liave been placed from time to time depicting our people in unspeakable delineations. And despite all this, some of our Jews continue to exhibit an indifference that is appalling. Were it not for the confidential nature of its work, a statement from the anti-Defamation committee of the B'nai B'rith MS to what is going on in this Sate, would shock our people mo action. Yet this cannot be doneWe reprint an article appearing in the Miami Daily News last Wednesday which speaks for itself. NOW KANSAS While the country gasps over the crooner-cornered Texas governorship, comes Kansas with a variation of the theme. Coming up in the Republican primaries is a fasI WRITE AS I PLEASE If ever there was a time when there should be unity amongst all of us, this is the time. Wherever we go, whatever we do, all of us should realize that "in unity there is strength." The phrase "Kol Yisroel Chaverim" all of Israel are brethren" should be made to be something living, not a mere thought. If this message, the message of unity, working together in harmony, trying to do things to benefit the people at large, could be gotten across to our people of Greater Miami, then we would not have to worry about our future. This is what must be considered by all. Plain Talk By AL SEGAL If the "Champagne Careman" would be left alone by a "Painless Dentist" who thinks he is a better lawyer than the 99 percent majority lawyers on the board of a newly formed organization, I believe the meetings would be more expediently conducted and some of the good natured soda-dispensing members would not be hi-jacked of drinks to keep the assembly cool, by the "Master" who knows how to talk them out of it. If a certain young Barrister who is trying to do his part for the welfare of "our race" and take his work more seriously by attending meetings on time (E. S. T. time— rather the J. T.—Jewish time) it would help him considerably to keep up with proceedings and eliminate his face getting red and become excited. Dear Mr. Segal :Though no Jew, I am a reader of your column. With utmost respect may I ask you: Is there any good reason why the Jews should continue to exist as a minority people and suffer as they do? Aren't you too clannish, holding yourself apart from other groups. By absorption into other race groups your problem would be solved while the mixture of bloods would serve to improve the so-called Aryan breed. You would cease to exist as a people but the fine qualities of the Jewish people would, by heredity, continue to flourish among the peoples. In order that an example may be set, I invite you (if you are' not already married) to go courting and marry one of our girls. Judging by your intellectual quality I would not hesitate to let you marry my own daughter. We are Scotch-Irish. What do you say.— E. D. T. Dear E. D. T.: I am, of course, flattered by your proposal in behalf of your daughter. However, I may not on the spur of the moment say Yes but must give my mind to a solemn consideration of the whole matter: Should I, for the sake of the safety of my generations, give my hand and heart to your daughter? As one who gives thought to the welfare even of his great grandchildren I am inclined to fav or your proposal. If I marriei one of the Scotch-Irish my great cist candidate for United States Senator. Like Gerald Smith, sidekick of the late Huey Long and now operating a fascist-looking drive of his own, the Kansas totalitarian tacks a "Rev." handle to his name. His name is Winrod, and he is on his way. The Kansas technique of the Kansas Hitler is the perfectly familiar thing. The first step in getting support for a fascist drive is to pick on some helpless object to which to direct the people's hate. Hitler picked the Jews. Later he added the communists, and now all Christian churches are under his ban. Wily Winrod of Kansas has directed his aim at two minorities not numerically powerful in Carrie Nation's old state, the Catholics and the Jews. His spreading of the gospel of hate has shown sufficient sign of success to arouse alarm among responsible Republicans in the state. William Allen White, revered liberal Emporia editor, has been sounding the alarm with all his voice, Chairman John Hamilton has denounced the candidate. Yet there is a clear chance that Winrod, running in a divided field, may win the nomination which he seeksThis, as While points out, would end Republican hopes in the Landon state. Whether Winrod won or lost, Kansas Republicanism would be sunk. Kansas is a literate state. We think, surely Kansas cannot fall for anything as outlandish and disreputable as this. Then we remember Kansas' goat gland almost-governor of less than a decade ago—and wonder. Dr. Brinkley of goat glxnd fame, running on his own with only a radio station at his back came within a scratch of carrying Kansas then. Indeed, there were whispers that had all his votes been counted he might have found himself in. We would like to have more confidence in Kansas now; but with the goat gland nightmare so lately laid, can one be so sure the state where John Brown battled will not fall for this nation's fiist furious fascist putsch? Recently one of the Senatorial candidates in Florida campaigned on a platform similar in nature though not nearly as virulent and violent as Winrod. The Rev. Winrod will be remembered as one who set himself up in the Buena Vista school to try and preach anti-Semitism but was driven from this city by the vigilance of the local B'nai B'rith whose protest to the School Board resulted in Winrod's ouster. We suggest an awakening on the part of some of our indifferent peopls. Perhaps "it can happen here." grandchildren certainly would be relieved of many of the problems which beset me, their Jewish great grandfather. My Scotch-Irish great grandson might aspire even for the presidency of the United States, an elevation which is far beyond the reach of my ambition, since I ant a Jew. Or, even more, he might attain membership in the Minehaha Fox Hunt Club (which is really very swell, what with the red coats they wear on fox hunts.) I, as a Jew, may not even dream of wearing a red coat in an exclusive fox hunt. Or, on top of everything, he could get into the best Newport, (R. I.) hotel and delight his heart with the awareness that he is paying $100 a day for his quarters and in standing at the peak of human elevation. In short, my Scotch-Irish great grandson would be an accepted man, unlike his Jewish great-grand father who can't even get into the Hiawatha Club which is less than the Minehaha Club. My descendant could become even president of the General Doorknobs Corporation (capital $1,000,000,000) which, as everybody knows, doesn't take Jews even to be clerks. As president of the General Doorknobs Corporation he might swing a stock-swindle which would get him into jail but nobody would say it was all due to his Scotch-Irish ancestry. He would be privileged to suffer his sin all to himself. His Jewish great grandfather is always feeling troubled because of being made to carry the sins of other Jews; since the sin of on<* Jew is visited upon all others. ..

V OOLUME 11NUMBER 29.
Rabbis 1 ? 1111 ?
Most of us were startled to see the screaming headlines in
the daily papers "Rabbi heads dope ring" and similarly em-
oellished articles regarding the arrest in Paris of a "Grand
Rabbi" Leifer oi Brooklyn, N. Y. The story told in vivid
terms how this so-called Rabbi used holy scrolls, and other re-
ligious articles ior the concealment of narcotics-
Naturally this story was and is being used to show how
depraved our people are. Perhaps a more careful investigation
of such a news item by the daily papers would have disclosed,
us did the accoun'. in the New York Times that there never
existed such a Raobi as this Leifer in Brooklyn. Of course,
every Jew knows or should know that there is no such thing as
'GRAND RABBI." The Jewish people have no such terms,
though from time to time some misguided individuals have
translated the idiomatic Yiddish phrase "guter Yid" to mean
Grand Rabbi.
The sooner the responsible leaders of American Jewry
nake up their mind to prevent the use of a term such as
"Rabbi" by those not properly entitled to it, the sooner will
our people be guarded against news stories of the kind that ap-
peared this week. There are many free lancers, many men who
were Hebrew teachers, many men who are shochtim, many who
because they are solicitors of charitable institutions or Yeshi-
vos call themselves "Rabbis," though they at no time have
the right thereto.
It is high tiir.e that the recognized institutions of higher
Jewish learning in the United States, together with the lay-j
...en's organizations representing the Orthodox, Conservative
,,nd Reform wings of Jewry take definite steps to put an end
I a this evil. If necessary to invoke legislation for this purpose
it should be done.
Suoh action on the part of responsible Rabbinate and laity
will bring about that respect for the term "Rabbi" that it
should in reality invoke.
On Guard
It would be laughable if it were not so serious, to consider
the high and mighty attitude, the indifference shown by some
"f our people regarding the wave of anti-Semitism which we
must face and overcome.
Some months ago vandals painted swastikas on one syna-
gogue building; last week vandals placed similar signs and con-
temptible writings on another synagogue building. Stickers
liave been placed from time to time depicting our people in un-
speakable delineations. And despite all this, some of our Jews
continue to exhibit an indifference that is appalling.
Were it not for the confidential nature of its work, a state-
ment from the anti-Defamation committee of the B'nai B'rith
ms to what is going on in this Sate, would shock our people
mo action. Yet this cannot be done-
We reprint an article appearing in the Miami Daily News
last Wednesday which speaks for itself.
NOW KANSAS
While the country gasps over the crooner-cornered
Texas governorship, comes Kansas with a variation of the
theme. Coming up in the Republican primaries is a fas-
I WRITE AS I
PLEASE
If ever there was a time when
there should be unity amongst all
of us, this is the time. Wherever
we go, whatever we do, all of us
should realize that "in unity there
is strength." The phrase "Kol
Yisroel Chaverim" all of Israel
are brethren" should be made to
be something living, not a mere
thought. If this message, the
message of unity, working togeth-
er in harmony, trying to do things
to benefit the people at large,
could be gotten across to our peo-
ple of Greater Miami, then we
would not have to worry about our
future. This is what must be con-
sidered by all.
Plain Talk
By AL SEGAL
If the "Champagne Careman"
would be left alone by a "Painless
Dentist" who thinks he is a better
lawyer than the 99 percent major-
ity lawyers on the board of a
newly formed organization, I be-
lieve the meetings would be more
expediently conducted and some of
the good natured soda-dispensing
members would not be hi-jacked of
drinks to keep the assembly cool,
by the "Master" who knows how
to talk them out of it.
If a certain young Barrister who
is trying to do his part for the
welfare of "our race" and take his
work more seriously by attending
meetings on time (E. S. T. time
rather the J. T.Jewish time) it
would help him considerably to
keep up with proceedings and
eliminate his face getting red and
become excited.
Dear Mr. Segal :Though no Jew,
I am a reader of your column.
With utmost respect may I ask
you: Is there any good reason why
the Jews should continue to exist
as a minority people and suffer as
they do? Aren't you too clannish,
holding yourself apart from other
groups. By absorption into other
race groups your problem would
be solved while the mixture of
bloods would serve to improve the
so-called Aryan breed. You would
cease to exist as a people but the
fine qualities of the Jewish people
would, by heredity, continue to
flourish among the peoples.
In order that an example may be
set, I invite you (if you are' not
already married) to go courting
and marry one of our girls. Judg-
ing by your intellectual quality I
would not hesitate to let you mar-
ry my own daughter. We are
Scotch-Irish. What do you say.
E. D. T.
Dear E. D. T.: I am, of course,
flattered by your proposal in be-
half of your daughter. However, I
may not on the spur of the mo-
ment say Yes but must give my
mind to a solemn consideration of
the whole matter: Should I, for
the sake of the safety of my gen-
erations, give my hand and heart
to your daughter?
As one who gives thought to
the welfare even of his great
grandchildren I am inclined to fav
or your proposal. If I marriei
one of the Scotch-Irish my great
cist candidate for United States Senator. Like Gerald
Smith, sidekick of the late Huey Long and now operating
a fascist-looking drive of his own, the Kansas totalitarian
tacks a "Rev." handle to his name. His name is Winrod,
and he is on his way.
The Kansas technique of the Kansas Hitler is the per-
fectly familiar thing. The first step in getting support for
a fascist drive is to pick on some helpless object to which
to direct the people's hate. Hitler picked the Jews. Later
he added the communists, and now all Christian churches
are under his ban. Wily Winrod of Kansas has directed
his aim at two minorities not numerically powerful in Car-
rie Nation's old state, the Catholics and the Jews. His
spreading of the gospel of hate has shown sufficient sign
of success to arouse alarm among responsible Republicans
in the state. William Allen White, revered liberal Em-
poria editor, has been sounding the alarm with all his voice,
Chairman John Hamilton has denounced the candidate.
Yet there is a clear chance that Winrod, running in a di-
vided field, may win the nomination which he seeks-
This, as While points out, would end Republican hopes
in the Landon state. Whether Winrod won or lost, Kan-
sas Republicanism would be sunk.
Kansas is a literate state. We think, surely Kansas
cannot fall for anything as outlandish and disreputable as
this. Then we remember Kansas' goat gland almost-gov-
ernor of less than a decade agoand wonder. Dr. Brink-
ley of goat glxnd fame, running on his own with only a
radio station at his back came within a scratch of carrying
Kansas then. Indeed, there were whispers that had all his
votes been counted he might have found himself in. We
would like to have more confidence in Kansas now; but
with the goat gland nightmare so lately laid, can one be so
sure the state where John Brown battled will not fall for
this nation's fiist furious fascist putsch?
Recently one of the Senatorial candidates in Florida cam-
paigned on a platform similar in nature though not nearly as
virulent and violent as Winrod. The Rev. Winrod will be re-
membered as one who set himself up in the Buena Vista school
to try and preach anti-Semitism but was driven from this city
by the vigilance of the local B'nai B'rith whose protest to the
School Board resulted in Winrod's ouster.
We suggest an awakening on the part of some of our in-
different peopls. Perhaps "it can happen here."
grandchildren certainly would be
relieved of many of the problems
which beset me, their Jewish great
grandfather.
My Scotch-Irish great grandson
might aspire even for the presi-
dency of the United States, an ele-
vation which is far beyond the
reach of my ambition, since I ant
a Jew. Or, even more, he might
attain membership in the Mineha-
ha Fox Hunt Club (which is really
very swell, what with the red coats
they wear on fox hunts.) I, as a
Jew, may not even dream of wear-
ing a red coat in an exclusive
fox hunt.
Or, on top of everything, he
could get into the best Newport,
(R. I.) hotel and delight his heart
with the awareness that he is pay-
ing $100 a day for his quarters
and in standing at the peak of hu-
man elevation.
In short, my Scotch-Irish great
grandson would be an accepted
man, unlike his Jewish great-grand
father who can't even get into the
Hiawatha Club which is less than
the Minehaha Club.
My descendant could become
even president of the General
Doorknobs Corporation (capital
$1,000,000,000) which, as every-
body knows, doesn't take Jews even
to be clerks. As president of the
General Doorknobs Corporation he
might swing a stock-swindle
which would get him into jail but
nobody would say it was all due
to his Scotch-Irish ancestry. He
would be privileged to suffer his
sin all to himself.
His Jewish great grandfather is
always feeling troubled because of
being made to carry the sins of
other Jews; since the sin of on<*
Jew is visited upon all others. ..
"That's the Jew for you," they
say.
Certainly, as my ghost looked
upon the privileges of my Scotch-
Irish great grandson I should have
to be grateful to you, my dear E.
D. T., for having let me marry
your daughter.
Yet there is another side. My

The interviewers reported that

PAGE SIX THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN FRIDAY, JULY 29, 1938 Civil versus National Rights THE CZECHOSLOVAKIA CRISIS TEACHES JEWS A LESSON (By WILLIAM ZUKERMAN) After first joining with Poles, Hungarians and other minorities in Czechoslovakia in demanding national autonomy, the Jews of that country hare now abandoned that demand. Why? Mr. Zukerman answers that question in another of his clearly thought out dispatches from Europe. —THE EDITOR One of the few advantages of the numerous crises in Europe at the present time is that occassionally, without intention, and almost against the will of their chief actors, they sometimes help to solve old and difficult problems which had stubbornly refused to be solved. Europe is now in a state of great oxperimentation. In the political laboratories of the nations great tests are being made which would not be attempted in peaceful times, and the results are of vital interest and concern to the various people. Occasionally it happens that such a test serves a useful purpose also for the Jews. An interesting test of this kind has now been made in Czechoslovakia. This test was least of all intended for the Jews. It was concerned chiefly and almost exclusively with the German minority in Czechoslovakia, the so-called Sudeten Germans who live in Bohemia. Hitler claims that they are Germans and that they must be incorporated into the German Reich. But this is not such an easy task. Czechoslovakia, without the coal mines and the iron ore of Bohemia and without the mountainous frontiers of that country, is, from the military standpoint, open to German attack on every side. From the economic standpoint, it is an impossible unit which would be doomed to collapse within a short period. The Czechs have therefore decided to offer reaistence to a Nazi invasion and to any attempt at an Anschluss of Bohemia with the Third Reich similar to that of Austria. Hitler, having realized that the Czechs were in earnest about their decision to defend their country, gave way and postponed the 'putsch' indefinitely. And in the mean time the Czech Government has decided to grant the Sudeten Germans a great measure of national autonomy to satisfy their legitimate nationalistic claims. But once this question of national autonomy was raised for the Germans, other nationalities in Czechoslovakia such as the Poles and the Hungarians, have also raised claims to similar concessions. If Sudeten Germans are to have national autonomy, why not Poles and Hungarians? The Czechoslovakian Government realized the justice of these demands (and maybe it was not all mere justice, but partly also pressure) and is now preparing a new nationality law whjch will give each minority within its borders the widest possible autonomy in cultural, economic and political affairs. It is at this point that the Jews come in. Jews too, are a national minority in Chechoslovakia. There are over 1S0.0OO Jews in the country and 100,000 of these live in compact masses in the province of Carpatho-Russio. The rest are scattered in the big towns of Czechoslovakia, chiefly Prague. Why should not the Jews too, be included in the new measure for national autonomy? The demand seems plausible, particularly to Jews of a nationalistic trend of mind (and most Jews in Eastern Europe are now of that trend,) and an organized movement spranS up to exert pressure on the Czechoslovakian Government to extend the newly proposed measure to include Jews. It was, of course, natural that the Zionists should be the prime movers of the movement. A program was prepared which demanded (1) That all the Hebrew schools "Chedorim" and "Yeshivas" in the country should be made state schools and supported entirely by the government, (2) that the government should launch a system of training of Jewish young men with a view to preparing them for economic positions and employment, (3) that the government "hould support the Jewish communities together with their elaborate system of religious and social services. The demands seemed feasible enough and pressure was brought on the Czechoslovakian government to bring them into effect. But it was at this time that diffiiulties set in. According to the underlying principle of national autonomy upon which the new measure of the Czech Government is based, each nationality in the state is to receive proportionate representation in the economic, administrative and cultural positions of the country. Since Jews form four percent of the enofre popula tion of Czechoslovakia, they ar. therefore entitled to four percen of all government positions as wel as of agricultural, industrial, com mercial and professional posts This is the basis of national au tonomy. But it so happens tha the Jews in Czechoslovakia (a well as in many other countries) while they do not occupy four per COMPLETE BANKING FACILITIES SAVINGS ACCOUNTS — Deposits made on or before July 10th draw interest from July 1st at the rate of 1% PER ANNUM This is the highest rate paid by any commercial bank in Greater Miami COMMERCIAL ACCOUNTS — We Invite your account on the regular commercial bank service basis.

In fact, he may be a poor man on WPA (as many a Scotch-Irish is) and feel no safety at all in the world—no more than I, his greatgrandfather who am a Jew now feel. Oh, it would be one pain after another for him and if I receive stones of prejudice on my poor head (as Jews often do) my Scotch-Irish great grandson would be bashed in other ways by the vicissitudes of the economic order. If he couldn't pay the rent he would be out on the street in the rain with his several sticks of furniture and his children; if the relief voucher didn't come on time there wouldn't be anything to eat in his house. Yes, he might not be either a very rich or a very poor ScotchIrish but merely a modestly comfortable one in a rather humble house with a lawn in the suburbs. He would be a salesman who would be troubled every day on account of his job, what with the sales manager being so arrogant, as sales managers often are. "Ferguson" (that might be my great grandson's name,) "Fergu-I son," the sales manager would say truculently, "You're falling down, you're falling down. You aren't making the sales quota this week. You must sell 1000 refriger Uors this week and you've sold or.ly 996. Watch your step, Fer/vison." My poor, worried grandson! Though he is a Scotch-I'isi. instead of a Jew he is still WWafl and troubled. What I am trying to say, my dear E. D. T., is that there is pain for Scotch-Irishmen as well as for Jews and that there is no security, unless one be of the Minehaha fox-hunters in red coats who are quite rare anyway. (And I am not really sure that I want my great grandson to be of the idle rich.) So my problem is this: Which pains shall I confer upon my great grandson—the simple pains of a Scotch-Irishman or 'he mor? complicated pains of a Jew who suffers all the common pains and his own exclusive pains bes>d>->? It seems just a matter of trading one pain for another of the many that afflict the human-kind. Well, I answer, if my great grandson is a Jew, he wii' ut least know why he suffers that port of his pain that has to do wi'.h his being Jewish. "For being a Jew, for being faithful to the things that are Jewish I am suffering this," he may say That's something." For other people there isn't even that much satisfaction for their pains which are not to be understood since they make no sense. The pain of poverty, the pain the righteous defeated while the wicked flourish, the pain of disease. ... My great grandson (if he is a Jew) will suffer all these pains but he will also have the bit of balm which comforts the pain of being Jewish. ""Yes, be(Continued on Page Eight) I
