JEWISH VETERANS
ORGANIZE JRS
DetroitFive thousand mem
hers of the Sons and Daughters
of the J. W. V., the Junior Auxi
liary of the Jewish War Veterans
and the only Jewish youth patrio-
tic organization in the coutry, will
converge on Detroit from every
part of the country for their first
rational convention to be held sim
ultaneously with the 43rd Annua
National Encampment of the Jew-
ish War Veterans of the United
States, in Detroit, September 2nd
to 5th, it was announced here this
week by Samuel J. Leve, general
chairman of the Convention Com
mittee.
Organized two years ago in the
East on an experimental basis, the
Sons and Daughters of J. W. V.,
has enjoyed a phenomenal growth.
The Junior Auxiliary now has
units attached to a majority of
the J. W. V. Posts. All members
I of the Sons and Daughters are
outfitted in natty blue and white
I uniforms. Many units have their
own bands and fife and drum
I corps.
Principal business on the agenda
of the Convention will be the elec-
tion of National Officers, the
launching of a National publica
tion and the beginning of a mem-
bership campaign. Charles C. Ei-
senstein of Newark, Chairman of
the J. W. V. Committee, directing
the Sons and Daughters of J. W.
V., is planning to have a represen-
tative of the Junior Auxiliary ad-
dress the Jewish War Veterans
Convention.
U. S. HOSTILE TO
FASCIST STATES
New York, (WNS)Public
opinion in the United States is
definitely hostile to foreign dicta-
torial governments, a survey by
the American Institute of Public
Opinion revealed. Asked which
side they would sympathize with
if England and France have war
with Germany and Italy, 65 per-
cent replied with England and
France, and gave as the chief rea-
son for their sympathy the type
of government existing in Europ-
ean countries.

ANTI-SEMITISM IN
CENTRAL EUROPE
Winterton Named
Refugee Chairman
London, (WNS)Lord Winter-
ton, pro-Arab spokesman and head
of the British delegation to the
inter-governmental refugee a i d
conference at Evian, has been
agreed upon as permanent chair-
man of the inter-governmental
committee on assistance to refu-
gees, which was scheduled to meet
on August 3rd in the British For-
eign Office for the first time since
its creation at Evian last month.
Myron C. Taylor, head of the
American delegation, and Senator
Henri Berenger of France, who
presided at Evian, are among those
named as vice-presidents.
The other vice-presidents will be
selected from among the represen-
tatives of Latin-American and
Scandinavian powers. A promi-
nent American is reported to have
heen agreed upon as director of
the committee.
Lord Winterton has twice warn-
ed Germany that unless she coop-
erates with the committee by al-
lowing refugees to take their prop-
erty with them, the work of the
committee is likely to end in fail-
ure.
Vatican City, (WNS)Pope
Pius is not only warring militantly
against racism and anti-Semitism
in Italy but is bringing pressure
to bear on Catholic Church leaders
in many other European lands, es-
pecially Poland, to combat anti-
Semitism there, according to re
ports in Vatican circles. These
same sources declare that the
Pontiff is also anxious to find a
modus operandi for bringing about
Arab-Jewish peace in Palestine.
COMMISSION NOT
TO HEAR LEADER
Jerusalem, (WNS, Palcor Agen-
cy)The Partition Commission,
headed by Sir John Woodhead, has
declined to hear testimony by
Menahem Ussishkin, Chairman of
the Zionist Actions Committee, it
was disclosed here. It was wil-
ling, however, to accept a written
statement containing the views of
the Veteran Zionist leader.
The fact that his personal evi-
dence was rejected was discovered
as Mr. Cssishkin submitted a
lengthy memorandum to the Com-
mission describing in full his atti-
tude toward the proposed tri-sec-
tion of Palestine and toward Brit-
ish policy as a whole. The Com-
mission, asked to hear Mr. Uss-
ishkin, informed that it was ready
to hear only practical criticism of
the partition scheme and was not
interested in the principle of oppo-
sition to partition. Moreover, it
was not concerned with any other
solution not directly linked to par-
tition. The Commission thus took
formal notice of Mr. Ussishkin's
known position as one if the out-
standing opponents of the conclu-
sions of the Peel Commission that
partition constituted the only so-
lution for the Arab-Jewish impasse
in Palestine.
The Vaad Leumi and the Jewish
Agency Executive, after canvass-
ing the results of Mr. Ussishkin's
unequivocal objections to partition
if he should appear before the
Woodhead Commission agreed that
should be present the point of
view of thet "Nein-sagers" (oppon-
ents of partition.)

Abe Aronovitz former city solicitor

ovitz has made a thorough study

work for the past several years as
a member of the anti-Defamation
Committee.
Following his address Mr. Aron-
ovitz will reply to queries regard-
ing the Jewish contributions in
the progress of the United States.

Hitler Decorates
Ford On Birthday
Detroit, (WNS)The Grand
Cross of the German Eagle the
highest decoration Germany can
bestow upon a foreigner, was
awarded to Henry Ford by Chan-
cellor Hitler on the occasion of
the motor magnate's 75th birth-
day. German consular officials
said the Cross was in recognition
of Ford's pioneering work in mo-
torization.
Zolotkoff, Pioneer of
Yiddish Press Dead
Amityville, L. I., (WNS)Leon
Zolotkoff, one of the pioneers of
the Yiddish press in America, died
here at the age of 70. A native
of Russia, he came to this country
in the early 1880's, settling in
Chicago, where he founded the
Chicago Daily News (Tageblatt.)
which was later merged with the
Jewish Morning Journal. Zolot-
koff was one of the founders of
the Zionist movement in the west,
serving as grand master of the
Order Sons of Zion.
TUNE IN SUNDAY
MORNING AT 9:60
The Jewish Floridian will
again present another in iti
seriee of weekly broadcasts
this coming Sunday morning
over Station WKAT (1600 k.
o.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's full
of interesting news and com-
ments and music.
Ford Asked To
Make Stand Clear
Detroit, (WNS)Detroit Jewish
Chronicle appealed to Henry Ford
to intercede personally in putting
a stop to the circulation of the
Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Utilizing the occasion of Mr. Fords
75th birthday, The Chronicle urges
him to take a hand in this issue
personally and to condemn the lie
against the Jewish people, since
his name is being used by anti-
Semites throughout the world in
book.
"Jews have tried to reason with
anti-Semites and to tell them that \
the dissemination of th? forged |
the statements of Henry Ford of
1921 are no longer valid; that they
have been nullified by the apology
of 1927. But our word is weak i
compared with the effect that Mr.
Ford's own statement would have
on the disseminators of hatred
against us. We are in position to
supply Mr. Ford with a list of or-
ganizations and individuals who
are using his name and quotations
from his writings as part of their
dastardly work. A word from Mr.
Ford will help to put a stop to this
horrible business. We) ask him at
this time to take a hand person-
ally in this matter and to completi
statement to the late Louis Mar-
shall, of discrediting the malicious
libels contained in the Protocols.
We know of no more sacred work
that Mr. Ford could enlist in at
the present time than that of co-
operating in dealing a death blow
Jo religious and racial hatred."
LA GUARDIA IS
READ OUT OF
ITALIAN RACE
Rome, (WNS)Mayor Fiorello
H. La Guardia of New York, who
is of Italian and Jewish paren-
tage, was -ead out of the Italian
race by the newspaper II Tevere.
Replying to another Rome paper.
II Piccolo, which recently referred
to La Guardia as the "popular
Italo-American mayor of New
York," II Tevere said he had no
right to belong to "our race."
"Popular La Guardia?" II Tevere
declared. "Without doubt. At the
time of sanctions, in fact, he won
large and well merited popularity
by delivering a series of infamous
speeches against Italy. Seeking
mongrel that he is, he takes ad-
vantage of his origin (geographi-
cal, but not ethnological, because
he does not belong to our race) to
bring pressure on Italians of New
York and open an abyss between
them and Fascist organizations."
American Tourist
Traffic to Reich Off
Berlin, (WNS)Intensified Na-
zi anti-Semitism and the German
spy indictment in the United
States are two of the principal
reasons advanced by travel agenc-
ies here for a 50 percent decline
in American tourist traffic to Ger-
many this year. Antipathy to the
Nazi regime and the conquest of
of Austria are other factors cited.
GERMAN JEM
E
Berlin, (WNS)Reacting to the
new community law which de-
prives Jewish religious communi-
ties of the right to tax their mem-
bers while reducing them to the
status of voluntary organizations
the Reichs Representation of Jews
in Germany, which has been the
central agency of German Jewry
since 1934 in directing the work
of retraining, emigration and cul-
tural activities, reorganized itself
along centralized lines as the
Reichs Union of Jews in Germany.
Under the new setup all provin-
cial Jewish organizations, includ-
ing the influential Prussian Pro-
vincial Union, are to be dissolved
while the smaller communities are
to be merged into district com-
munities. Because of the volun-
tary nature of membership in Jew-
ish communities under the new
law, there will be limitations on
the amount of emigration, welfare
and other aid provided to mem-
bers. It is understood that one
way of compelling membership in
the communities will be a request
to Jewish relief agencies abroad to
limit their assistance to emigres
affiliated with Jewish communi-
ties. There will be no change in
the 50-50 division of community
offices between Zionists and non-
Zionists.
Dr. Leo Baeck, chief rabbi of
Berlin, who was named president
of the new organization, announc-
ed the creation of the Reichs Un-
ion as a united Jewish body in a
statement published in the Cen-
tralverein Zeitung. Rabbi Baeck
said: "The most earnest tasks lie
before us. In a situation that has
scarcely been equalled in the oft
severe history of our people we
have endeavored not without suc-
cess to banish the specter of chaos.
All that has befallen us we have
met with trust in God and reliance
in our self-respect. The continu-
ing of our existence has been ac-
complished by reorienating work
through schools, in preparation
for emigration. We have readjust-
ed ourselves inwardly and have
created new forms of spiritual and
material help. The national or-
ganization will do everything to
further this course and to find new
possibilities of help.
"But there can be no doubt that
this continual and extraordinary
strain on all our energies has its
limit. The domain of our existence
daily becomes narrower. Elimina-
tion from the professions and bus-

VIRGINIA COLONY
Norfolk, Va., (WNS)Plans for
settling 25 German Jewish refu-
gee families on farms near Rich-
mond, Virginia, within the next

"The Beauty of Mount Carmel,"
Dr. A. Wolfson told his Spinoza

memory of a great Prophet. Eli-

ing echo of his voice. We were
off and daughter Renah Rachel,' walking on the Carmel in the corn-
returned to the city from a north-

ton, Pa. Rabbi Mescheloff repre-
sented Florida at the National
Convention of the Rabbinical
Council of America. Acompanying
them on the return trip was Mrs.
pany of a skeptic Jew. Suddenly
he whispered to us reverently
This is the place where Elijah is
supposed to have uttered his great
challenge to our people:" How
long holt ye between two opin-
ions? If the eternal be God fol-
low Him, if Baal, then follow him!
We stood speechless and motion-
less even as did the people who
had heard Elijah on that memor-
able day. Next Saturday after-
noon at 3:00 o'clock the Spinoza
Group will meet again on the lawn

FRIDAY, AU0U8T 5,1938
VOLUME 11. NUMBER 30
TRUE AMERICANISM PREVAILS
When Finley Moore, candidate for the United States Sen-
ate from Florida campaigned on an un-American platform re-
cently, very little attention was paid to him because we in Flor-
ida had faith in the common sense and good judgment of
Floridians.
When Gerald Winrod noted anti-Semite who personally
handed out copies of the infamous Protocols in Miami, and who
was driven out of this area on two different occasions by the
concerted efforts of local anti-Defamation members of B'nai
B'rith, became a candidate for the Senate from the State of
Kansas, we became somewhat worried. We did not know what
Kansas might do, and we knew what the effect of a nomina-
tion at the hands of the Republican party would mean to anti-
Semites everywhere.
The people have spoken at the polls. Kansas, as should
have been expected, turned thumbs down on Winrod. Instead
of running first as so many political authorities had predicted,
he ran a poor third. Of course, the courageous stand of men
like Hamilton, national chairman of the Republican Party, the
noted liberal editor William Allen White and others, helped
clear up the situation. Winrod who it appears had unlimited
money, said to have been supplied by Hitler and his propagan-
dists, did not hesitate to spend enormous sums to obtain the
nomination.
We sincerely believe that Hitler has been told by the citi-
zens of this country that his ideas and ideals have no place in
the United States. We Americans want none of the Winrod or
Moore ilk in this country. We want real Americans, those to
whom Hitlerism, Fascism, Communism and the like are
anathema.
Once again the American people have spoken. Once again
the light of pitiless publicity has brought results.
SIMPSON URGES
DIRECT ACTION
London, (WNS) Elimination of
economic and political conditions
in Eastern Europe, especially or-
ganized anti-Semitic propaganda,
that threatens to aggravate the
already acute refugee problem by
bringing about a new wave of Jew-
ish persecution, is urged by Sir
John Hope Simpson in a prelimi-
nary report of a survey of the ref-
ugee question published under the
auspices of the Royal Institute of
International Affairs.
Recognized as an expert on ref-
ugee problems by virtue of his
work with the Refugee Settle-
ments in Athens from 1926 to
1930, Sir John recommended rad-
ical and preventative action, rath-
er than superficial palliatives, to
deal with the situation. Specifi-
cally, he proposed agrarian reform
in Poland to overcome dire pover-
ty among the peasantry, which has
resulted in discrimination against
Jews.
JUDEANS PLAN
NEW REGIMENT
London, Ontario, (WNS)Rais-
ing of a regiment of 1,000 Cana-
dian Jews to go to Palestine to
relieve one of the British military
units now on duty there was urged
by the Ottawa delegation in a res-
olution presented to the Ontario
Young Judea Conference.
The resolution proposed that
the conference call on the Cana-
dian Zionist Organization "to
raise immediately an army of 1000
Young Judeans who are prepared

I WRITE AS I
PLEASE
At a meeting of a group of civic
minded citizens held recently, one
of the leading members of this
community remarked that in his
Opinion, there are too many Jewish
radio programs on Sunday. This
is something to think about.
The indiscriminate use of the
word "Rabbi" causes us to blush
with shame and pain, particularly
when we recently read in the pa-
pers that a "Grand Rabbi" was ar-
rested on the charge of smuggling
dope concealed in holy books. For-
tunately, this man is a fraudhe
never was a Rabbi, has no congre-
gation and never has had a con-
gregation. Yet, the damage was
done. What can we do about it?
Let us stop the promiscuous use of
this honored title and restrict it
only to those men who are truly
consecrated to religious leadership
in Israel.In this connection, it is
understood, that right here in Mi-
ami, a number of our people, hav-
ing no connection with any Syna-
gogue use the title "Rabbi" in or-
der to get the benefit of reduced
rates for telephone service, trans-
portation, etc. This obnoxious
practice should be speedily sup-
pressed.
There is manifestly a need for a
Jewish community center in Mi-
amia place where our organiza-
tions may meet amidst pleasant
surroundings. The Y. M. H. A. has
started in the right direction, and
it is possible that this may be used
as the nucleus for such a purpose.
Another important and vital
nee(]a centralized Greater Miami
Talmud Torah. In establishing
such a school, a cimpetent staff of
teachers can be employed and our
childrenand many adultsmay
be able to obtain a real Hebrew
education. Many leading citizens
have expressed themselves along
these linesmay their expressions
soon take tangible form.
Speaking of anti-defamation
an educational campaign should
be inaugurated among our own
people. Since the Jewish people
are so much in the limelight, our
every act and deed is scrutinized.
Thoughtless acts bring about un-
pleasant reactions. For example,
during the past year, many stores
on Miami Beach unnecessarily cov-
ered the entire fronts of their
stores with Hebrew and Yiddi.-h
signs. This is overdoing advertis-
ing and is very distasteful to the
fine sensibilities of our people. A
simple sign would be more effec-
tive and more dignified.
Are you a member of our com-
munity? Are you a member of
one of our splendid synagogues?
Are you affiliated with the many
altruistic organizations in our
midst? If not, you are not ful-
filling your obligations and plac-
ing the responsibility of these
much needed institutions upon the
shoulders of a small group of our
people. Unite with your fellow-
menaccept your share of com-
munal responsibilityyou will de-
rive great pleasure from doing
your part.

The Lunatic
(BY SIDNEY J. JACOBS)
The pious inhabitants of the
village, hidden in a little-traversed
corner of the Pale of Settlement
in the great empire of Matushka
Russiya, had become reconciled to
having in their midst a madman,
one whom it had pleased the Holy
One, Blessed be He, to take from
the world of the sane and to cast
into the many-shadowed realm of
the senseless.
At first the unfortunate lunatic
had been a terrifying novelty in
the little hamlet, where life as a
rule proceeded with monotonous
prosaicness. But after the mor-
bid attraction that insanity holds
for the sane had worn off, he had
become an accepted institution,
like the drippings from the Sab-
bath candles or the creaking wood-
en bridge that straddled the near-
by stream.
For a short time, the village had
gained a questionable prominence
among the few other communities
with which it had intercourse. Its
inhabitants who carried their pack
wares to the villages within a con-
servative radius became centers of
interest and were asked to relate,
before gossipy housewives and
common ne'er-do-wells in the inns,
the story of "their" lunatic. But
the inherent dullness of the vil-
lage soon absorbed this unexpect-
ed event and life resumed its lies-
urely ritual-laden course.
The lunatic was Reb Chaim ben
Reb Yitzhak (may his memory be
for a blessing!' He was a small,
shriveled man, with a short, neat
beard and tired brown eyes. For
many years, previous to his mis-
fortune, he had been the local
tailor, a painstaking, quiet work-
er, whose bespectacled, hawk-nos-
ed face, bending over the embryo
of a Kaftan, had been a familiar
sight in the village. Reb Chaim,
near-sighted, modest, unobtrusive,
was one of the individuals in a
group who are taken for granted
as moderately learned in the Law
and possessed an excellent mem-
ory for retaining choice quotations
fro mthe Scriptures.
Reb Chaim lived with his
shrewdish, buxom wife, Hannah,
the daughter of Reb Levi Baer,
and their sole offspring, a girl
named Leah. She had been ob-
served by critical neighbors ever
since the day when she had been
sprung, closing forever the womb
of her mother as if to preclude
the coming of others who would
dispute her autonomy. They saw
her now, the quarreling, posessive
child become a wildly beautiful
maiden of sixteen. The neighbors
had turned away, disgustedly, say-
ing tha tmore appropriately she
should have been named Lilith.
Her pious father regretted the
fact that there will be no son to
say the Kaddish for his soul af-
ter his passing. He disapproved
of the actions of his pagan daugh-
ter, who like his wife, treated him
with unconcealed contempt. But
he retained his customary docility
and wove in and out with his long
needle, sitting cross-legged on his
work-bench and murmuring, "The
law of the Lord is perfect, restor-
ing the soul; the testimony of the
Lord is sure, making wise the
simple; the precepts of the Lord
are right, rejoicing the heart."
The full-lipped, firm-breasted
Leah became the symbol of wick-
edness in the village. How much
of her reputation she had earned
and hoW much was hearsay none
could tell; but when she strode
through the market place, her
well-formed thighs pressing
against her skirts, she represent-
ed to the villagers the ultimate in
carnality. Her father, taking his
place for a stolen hour on some
afternoons around the long study
table in the dimly lit Beth Ham-
idrash, could not help seeing the
eyes of the young students leav-
ing the large, yellow pages of
their Talmud folios and gazing
out of the window, following the
swinging buttocks of his daughter
as she walked by. He was con-
scious of the eyes of the elder
scholars resting upon him in pity-
ing and curious glances, as if they
wondered how this pious tailor
could have begotten such a world-
ly creature.
It was on a hot summer's even-
ing, when the villagers sweated
and comforted themselves by re-
membering the great heat waves
of their childhood, that Isaac the
Orphan, feeble-minded gamin who
was given shelter in the Talmud
Torah, came running, his bare feet
patting on the hot dusty road. To
the cottage of Reb Chaim he flew,
where the tailor was sitting in the
gloom, meditating, and his wife,
standing nearby, was gossiping
with a neighbor.
"Reb Chaim!" cried the boy,
panting. "Reb Chaim! Your
daughter Leahshe lies in the
field yonder with a Goy from
V------."
The shout was heard by the
many villagers sitting in front of
their houses, and those close to th-i
tailor saw his thin face pale and
his lips tighten. The domineering
Hannah ran to the dirty child and
boxed him on the ears.
"For shame, you cursed one!
Begine!" she cried.
But Reb Chaim put a restrain-
ing hand upon her. Me rose slow-
ly, as if in a trance.
"Let him be," he said, and,
turning to the messenger, he ad-
ded, "Come, my child. Come, take
me tothe place."
He followed the eager child
down the street, neither hearing
the cries of his wife nor the cau-
tions of his neighbors. Unheeding
he walked into the night, a small,
stooped figure.
What happened in the field that
evening has never been revealed.
Neither Leah nor her lover was
ever seen again in that section of
the Pale and although rumors
were frequently heard that she
had become the mistress of the
provincial governor or that she
had died of a venereal disease, she
was as one who has departed from
this life.
As for Reb Chaim, he was found
on the next morning, lying in a
stupor under a tree whose bark
had been stripped many years be-
fore by a bolt of lightning. Taken
home, he was labored over by th
learned curers of the village. Amu-
lets were placed upon his body
and on the walls of his room.
Compresses containing wild roots
were laid upon his head. Psalms
were said for himjjya minyan of
ten learned mm. *Bot although
he regained his normal bodily
health, he became a senseless (
wide-eyed lunatic, oblivious to all
that went on and content to re-
main constantly in his little tail-

THE WORLD'S WINDOW
-By LUDWIG LEWISOHN-
What is it that divides men so
cruelly ? Hunger and the hunt for
bread ? Yes and no. If men were
wholly sane they could sit down
together and take counsel and seek
to establish according to cool and
scientific plans and economic eq-
uilibrium for the world. But they
are prevented from doing so by
darker and anterior passions.
Thus, for instance, customs bar-
riers are nine times out of ten bar-
riers of hatred and of self-asser-
tion. Enlightened economic self-
interest would dictate their being
abolished; hate and self-assertive-
ness keep them ruinously intact.
This hate-filled self-assertive-
ness is at the root of nearly all
the worst ills of civilization; it is
at the root of cruelty and persecu-
tion. It aloneand nothing else-
is the beast in man. All high reli-
gions have sought to weaken this
demon. Even today the Roman
Pontiff, stung to the quick at last,
protests bitterly against the un-
human horrors to which this self-
assertiveness ia leading men.
Let us see how this dreadful
passion works. It says through
those possessed by-it: "You must
be like me or I will destroy you,
cast you out. For only what I am
is good. What you are is evil.
And if I let the evil which I have
stamped as you persist, I may be-
gin to doubt my goodness and su-
periority. And rather than risk
that I will destroy you and me and
civilization."
Observe under the aspect of
this analysis Nazis, Fascists, mili-
tant nativists. The disease attacks
even reasonably civilized peoples.
Why should the Czechish govern-
ment ever, even for a year or two,
have outraged the cultural sensi-
bilities of the people of Egerland?
It is really nobody's business
whether a man wants to live with-
in the circle of Czechish or German
culture. So long as he pays his
taxes and keeps out of jail, it is
insult and oppression even to ask
him what language he prefers to
speak or what poets to read or in
what place and according to what
principle to worship. As soon as
a government or a majority begins
officially to ask that question, it
is in principle already inquisitor,
persecutor, tyrant and he of whom
the question is asked is already a
slave.
To the critical and enlightened
intelligence there is no virtue and
no grace and no profit in uniform-
ity. But that is what the world-
mob, the rabble wants. "Be like
me or I will destroy you;" It
wants the uniform of both the
body and the mind. All its rat-
ionalizations, that is, its explana-
tions after the fact are the intel-
lectual garbage. It is spiritually
insecure; it distrusts its own
strength and Its own values. It
wants to M iwcted op." irwMts
to obliterate all but itself and the
'likeness of itself. At, the slight-
est perception of difference it shies
like a frightened animal. Next it
rears and kicks and bites and tears
asunder. "I must be everything
and you nothing!" That is its ani-
mal shout as it persecutes and pur-
suesusually the higher than it-
self.
The disease has but to be diag-
nosed to be recognized. Why
should all partakers of German
culture be as like as peas? Why
.should all citizens of the Soviet
Union babble the same formulae?
Why do Arabs (some Arabs and
those hired thugs) fight for a pre-
dominantly Arab Palestine? Why
do American employment agencies
turn down the applicant if his or
her "religion" is Jewish? There
is no reason in the realm of mind
or spirit or even the practical bus-
iness of life. Multiformity of
character, taste, culture, faith,
philosophythese are to the en-
lightened soul the very sources of
life's wealth, interest, fascination.
Would any one in his senses want
all individuals to be alike, to be
like Ford cars, turned out in ser-
ies? They why should the culture-
groups and, if any one likes, the
racial groups and the religious
groups not co-exist either in sep-
arate polities or within the same
polity and political structure in an
attitude of mutual appreciation
and enrichment? Why? There is
no answer except the dulf roar of
the mob-brute: "You must be like
me or I will destroy you."
Such is the foundation of the
Jewish problem, of the Jewish
tragedy. Of the inner tragedy of
the modern Jew, too. It is the
tragedy of the assimilationist who,
by trying to be other than he is
and as God meant him to be, plays
into the hands and claws of the
mob-brute and agrees that uni-
formity is a good.
How beautifully we transcended
this fellacy long ages ago! How
shameful it is for any Jew to fall
into and share it, the source of all
our miseries, rather than remem-
ber and abide by the teaching of
the immortal Midrash: "If a man
casts coins according to one form
each coin is like the other. The
King of Kings, the Holy One, bles-
sed be He, however, casts each
man in the form of the first man
and yet is no man like his fellow.
For this reason every individual
soul can say: For the sake of me
was the world created."

THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN
FRIDAY, AUGUST B. 19M
THE LUNATIC
(Continued from Page Three)
or shop in the rear of his home,
cross-legged as usual on the work-
bench, muttering to himself, and
plying his needle through the emp-
ty air, weaving garments out of
nothingness.
The seasons went their courses
in stately cavalcade; women labor-
ed and brought forth; the hevra
kaddishah laid many in the
ground. Tended by his now sub-
dued and frightened wife, who,
like many others, began to see
something sinister in his silence,
Reb Chaim remained secluded, not
even attending the synagogue.
Daily he sewed on, making imag-
inary garments out of the dust
that was caught in the slanting
rays of the setting sun.
In the Intense heat of the mid-
summer there came the eighth day
of the eleventh month which is Ab,
the lion rampant. The village bore
an air of deep gloom and over-
whelming sadness as the residents
prepared to observe the day of
fasting and weeping on the mor-
row. Tishe B'Ab, memorial anni-
versary of the destruction of the
Jewish commonwealth in Pales-
tine.
On the eve which marked the
beginning of the fast day a slow
moving stream of worshippers
flowed toward the village syna-
gogue. They walked in measured
tread, with solemn pace; their
heads were bowed, their eyes fix-
ed upon the ground. Somberly
dressed, as if entering a house of
mourning, they approached and
were taken in by the wooden frame
of the shul.
Inside, the house of worship
presented a scene of utter desola-
tion. The wooden benches which
ordinarily served as seats were
turned upside down and pushed to
one end of the room, where they
lay like dead animals with stiff
legs upturned. The Ark of the
Law was divested of its custom-
ary ornamental covering and was
shrouded in black. The candle
lights along the walls were not to
be seen, and only the Perpetual
Light before the Ark remained of
the usual ilumination.
On tha floor were crowded &
mourners, the women and children
in a rear corner. They sat, young
and old, the ruddy-faced inkeeper,
the burly teamster, and the gentle
faced, white-bearded rabbi, bare-
foot and cross-legged on the floor
in Oriental fashion. Each one
held in one hand a small, flick-
ering candle, and in the other he
held a prayer book opened to the
elegiac Lamentations. They sway
ed to and fro, hypnotically, mon-
otonously, each one to a different
rhythm. The candles in their
hands gutted and gasped and lit
the faces of their holders to reveal
sunken cheeks and burning, tear-
filled eyes.
From the half-darkness came
the dirgeful drone of the cantor
as he chanted:
How doth the city sit solitary.
That was full of people!
How is she become as a widow!
She that was great among the
nations,
And princess among the pro-
vinces,
How is she become tributary!
As the voice faded away, the
low murmur of the worshippers
rose to a mighty wail. It filled
the tiny synagogue and overflow-
ed into the streets and rose to
challenge the grinning moon. The
black Ark-covering billowed as if
the spirit of mourning had entered
into it. For It is written: Let
tears run down like a river day
and night.
Thus, thus, into the night. .
Suddenly, when the words had
been repeated over and over again
and the night had grown old, when
the children who had watched
fearfully the bitter weeping of
their fathers were sleeping against
the bosoms of their mothers, when
there was but a steady moaning,
a shriek pierced the air. It broke
the mournful coma of the wor-
shippers and it echoed and re-
echoed and bounded from wall to
wall and terrified the weary con-
gregation.
The worshippers turned and
strained and sought to see from
where the unearthly shriek had
come. Little ones began to whim-
per and mothers hastily unbut-
toned their blouses and offered
their nipples to the infants to
keep them silent Then a cry
came from the front of the syna-
gogue and, turning, the congrega-
tion saw on the darkened pulpit
on which the chazan is accustom-
ed to chant the prayers before the
Ark, the face and figure of Reb
Chaim, the madman. How he had
come no one knew. His wife was
nowhere to be seen. But Reb
Chaim stood swaying on the little
elevation and the dim gleam from
the Perpetual Light sent eerie
rays to illumine his scrawny,
uwk-nosed face with a pale light.
He be*-" to speak, and his ser-
mon was a queer combination of
quotations from Lamentations and
mad invective.
"I am the man that hath seen
affliction
By the rod of His wrath.
He hath led me and caused me
to walk
In darkness and not in light-----
I am become a derision to all
my people,
And their song all day. ___
"'Poor Reb Chaim!' Thus ye
speak of me. Fools! I have sin-
ned, aye. Israel has sinned. I
have sent forth my seed to wax
into wickedness. And I am pun-
ished. Israel is punisned!
"Jerusalem hath grievously sin-
ned,
Therefore she is become as one
unclean. .
Her filthiness was in her skirts,
She was not mindful of her end;
Therefore is she come down
wonderfully,
She hath no comforter. .
The iniquity of the daughter of
my people is greater
Than the sin of Sedom."
None could tell whether he spoke
of Jerusalem, as it is written, or
of Leah, his sinful daughter. To
the rabbi it seemed as if there
were no distinction before God be-
tween the one and the other.
"Fools!" cried Reb Chaim, roll-
ing his eyes wildly as he shouted.
"Hear me! I proclaim ye thrice
fools, hypocrites, and accursed
ones." His hearers, frightened
and curious, were silent. Even the
children were stilled in terror.
The lunatic raised his arms and
held them above his head, and,
turning his eyes heavenward, he
addressed a mad prayer: "Give
ear, oh Maker of the fire, to the
voice of Reb Chaim. Turn not
away, oh Master of the thunder.
Cruse them who blasphemes Thy
Holy Name. They have betrayed
Thy seed, the heroes, the strong
men of the desert. They have spit
upon the tombs of Abraham, Is-
aac and Jacob, men of might,
wielders of the bow. They sit
and mourn for Zion, but they lie."
Turning to his hearers, he shout-
ed:
"Who is there among ye who
in his heart wishes Zion? Where
is he that seeks Jerusalem? What!
Hear I no answer? Aye, ye fools.
Ye seek not Zion, but tears and
mourning. Ye seek not the sweet,
green ground of Sharon, but the
cold, hard dirt of exile. Behold!
It is the Lord who speaks through
me. I shall give ye spades and
hoes and goodly seed. Go then
if ye will, and build me a habita-
tion in Zion.

The pious villagers shuddered
and watched with a mixture of
pity and fear while several of the
stronger men caried the strug-
gling, shouting madman out of
the building. They sought to re-
turn to their lamentations, but in
their ears was the wild acusation
left by the lanatic. "Ye seek not
Zion, but tears and mourning."
Reb Simon, the shammes, who
was sitting next to the rabbi, turn-
ed to that venerable sage and,
shaking his head sadly, inquired,
"What foolishness uttereth from
the mouths of babes and fools; is
it not so, master?"
But the aged teacher, who had
heard of the waste place that was
now Zion, did not reply. Neither
did his eyes return to the square
letters in the book in his hand.
Instead, in his eyes was a far-
away look, and his heart was sore-
ly troubled.

VICTORIA DENIES
LABOR CUTS
Melbourne, (WNS) Disturbed
by the increasingly anti-alien tone
of the Australian press, the gov-
ernment of the State of Victoria
issued a special statement categor-
ically denying rumors that Jewish
immigrants were slashing the
wages of sweated labor.
Publication of the statement co-
incided with the appearence of
cartoons in The Age and The Her-
ald depicting streams of immi-
grants entering Australia while
immigration officials stand by in-
differently. The Argus printed
two anonymous letters, one accus-
ing Jews of cutting wages of
sweated labor, and the other de-
manding a ban on "indiscriminate
Jewish immigration."
DIES COMMITTEE
TO BAN BUND
Washington, D. C, (WNS)No
officials of the German-American
Bund or of Communist organiza-
tions will be called as witnesses
before the House Committee inves-
tigating un-American activities
when it opens public hearings in
Washington on August 11, Chair-
man Martin Dies announced.
"We aren't going to present a
sounding board for their causes,"
he said, "hut If they want to ap-
pear and bring in documents such
as membership and dues lists,
*e11 let them be heard."
Dies revealed his committee had
already uncovered "startling in-
formation" of such a nature that
the public and Congress "will in-
sist that we carry on the work be-
yond the present January 3rd
deadline."

ITALY ACTS
AGAINST JEWS
Rome, (WNS)Half and quar-
ter-Jews as well as full-blooded
Jews will be subjected to the forth-
coming anti-Semitic regulations, it
is predicted in the Fascist press.
Lists of half and quarter-Jews are
already being prepared, it is re-
ported, to facilitate their removal
from positions in the universities
and government departments.
New York, (WNS)Unless
Jews abandon their opposition to
Fascism they can expect Italy to
proceed with a complete program
of anti-Semitism against the Jews
of Italy, Ugo V. d'Annunzio, son
of the late Gabriel d'Annunzio, de-
clares in a long letter to the editor
of the New York Herald-Tribune.
A naturalized American citizen,
d'Annunzio bluntly asserts that
Italy has embarked on a racist
program in retaliation for Jewish
opposition to Fascism. "Jewish
anti-Fascism has struck and Fas-
cism has struck back," he says.
"And in this exchange of blows
Fascism was not the loser." Af-
ter stating that the recent racial
policy in Italy is a departure from
Italy's traditional tolerance in
matters of race and religion, d'-
Annunzio reviews at considerable
length the position of the Jew in
Italy, citing the names of many
Jews who held and still hold high
political, cultural and economic
positions in Italy.
He then charges that the Jews
"outside of Italy made themselves
responsible for a reaction against
their brethren living in Italy." Em-
phasizing that no anti-Semitic
measures have yet been taken, d'-
Annrnzio declares that "if from
Jewish press and pulpit through-
out the world the daily denuncia-
tion of Italian Fascism continues,
if the Jewish-inspired campaign
of defamation of everything Ital-
ian goes on unabated, it is very
unlikely that the Italian govern-
ment will restrict its racial pro-
gram to theories alone. And could
it be expected from any other
government to act differently in
similar circumstances? The Jew-
ish problem in Italy has now be-
come a problem for the Jews
throughout the world to solve.
And upon their decision rests the
fate of the Jews in Italy."
BEN BERNIE, ORCHESTRA
ARE BARRED FROM HOTEL
Toronto, (WNS)Denied ad-
admission to a Port Stanley hotel
because they are Jews, Ben Bernie
and his orchestra, who are on a
dance tour of Ontario Province re-
sorts, were forced to spend the
night in tourist cabins near here.
SOCIETY
-
WORLD CONGRESS
TO BEHELD SOON
Detroit, (WNS)Opposition to
"any movement against race, creed
or color," was voiced by Vincent
Giuliano, publisher of the Italian
Tribune of America, Detroit pa-
per, in a statement to the Detroit
Jewish Chronicle. Guiliano said
he did not know "what has hap-
pened between the Italian Jews
and the Italian government," add-
ing that "Italy has always been
a country without prejudices
against races or creeds, and I can-
not conceive the reason for any
change now."
ParisThe 1939 World Congress
against Racialism and Anti-Semit-
ism will be held in New York City,
it was decided by delegates to the
1938 Congress held here.
The Congress decided to alter
the name of the organization by
omitting the words "and anti-
Semitism" to more accurately de-
scribe its full scope and purpose.
Four hundred delegates from all
parts of the world attended, in-
cluding Protestants, Cath o li c s,
Jews, Freethinkers, Moslems and
Negroes.
Emphasis upon the rights and
destiny of every human being was
the keynote of the Congress. The
delegates pledged themselves "to
continue united and to struggle
unto death against racialism and
its corollary Fascism until the at-
tacks on the rights of the people
are stopped, and on behalf of hu-
man independence, liberty and dig-
nity."
Among the speakers were Pierre
Cot, former French Cabinet mem-

TISH'O B'OV
Tisho B'Ov the final day of the
three weeks of mourning over the
destruction of our ancient temple
in Jerusalem, falling on Saturday
is postponed to Sunday. This im-
portant fast day begins Saturday
evening before sunset. Services
will be held Saturday night at 8:00
. m., and Sunday morning at 7:30
a. m., during which the "Book of
Lamentation" and the Kinoth will
be read.
Tisho B'Ov has recurrently prov
ed to be the most tragic day in
Jewish history. It marks, not only
the date of destruction of the two
Jewish temples; it was the date on
which God decreed that Israel
must wander in the wilderness for
forty years, the date on which the
Jews of Spain were expelled from
their adopted land, etc., etc.
Attend Tisho B'Ov services this
year and be sure to bring your
children that they too may be im-
pressed with the solemnity of this
day.
GREETINGS
Rabbi and Mrs. Moses Meschel-
off and daughter, and Cantor Mau-
rice Mamches have returned from
their summer vacation and wish to
greet all their friends and mem-
*">rs of the Beth Jacob Congrega-
tion. They hope that God will
give them continued strength to
serve their community to the best
of their ability, and that many a
happy occasion will arise for see-
ing their friends and members
during the coming year.
HEBREW SCHOOL
Miss S. Shpall, our assistant
teacher, who has taken care of all
our daily Hebrew School classes
during the absence of the Cantor,
will take a three week vacation
beginning next Sunday. During
this time the Cantor will conduct
all classes.
Our Hebrew School never closes.
Classes are held weekday morn-
ings. Surroundings are cool and
pleasant; instruction is enjoyable
and most worth while. If you have
a child of public school age who
is now yet receiving Jewish in-
struction, why not register him

B'NAI B'RITH
BRIEFS
By E. ALBERT PALLOT
Here's a question that has both-
ered the B. B. younger generation
for some time:
"Why is the B'nai B'rith so im-
portant to Daddy? He is always
going to meetings."
When they decided about paying
tribute to the Unknown Soldier at
Arlington Cemetery before the
last convention, that objective
probably pleased Mr. Rudy Adler,
local well-known soldier, and made
him attend a few more meetings.
Mr. Milton Friedman and Mr.
Sidney Segall no doubt were en
thusiastic when they heard about
B'nai B'rith's new president, Mr.
Henry Monsky, who has an L L
D., and, who knows, may also have
been a good secretary.
Then, locally, Marcia and Chas.
Adelman know why their father,
Mr. Nathan Adelman, attends
those meetings. You can't be ad-
visor to an up-and-coming organi-
zation like the local A. Z. A.,
without being active.
Mr. Benjamin Le Vine, efficient-
ly expert treasurer of B'nai B'rith
never is bothered by having to
attend meetings because Mrs. Ben
being president of the Council of
Jewish Women knows just how it
feels.
Then there's Mr. Lou Shochet
who has too great a nose for news
not to attend any given important
meeting.
At every meeting is Mr. Presi-
dent Elry Stone who is where he
is because of that "something
worth while" which Dr. Coret men-
tioned in last week's B. B. Briefs.
NOTIL PATtlH f MOTU MSOTO
But those mentioned seem to be
personal reasons for attending
B'nai B'rith meetings. Since the
younger generation still was both-
ered about why its particular
Daddy went so often to those
meetings, I asked the highest
ranking officer in the state (his
official title is Second Vice Presi-
dent of the Fifth District) to ex-
plain why every Jewish man ought
to become a member of the B'nai
B'rith.
He was extremely interested in
the question and thought for a long
time behind his pipe smoke before
answering. Then he said:
"First, B'nai B'rith is the only
place where all Jews can meet on
neutral territory to solve their
difficulties."
He was very proud of the B'nai
B'rith's anti-Defamation work
against subversive movements the
world over and added that it was
"specially important" now.
The Hillel Foundation work in
a dozen universities is another im-
portant reason why every Jew
should belong to B'nai B'rith. It
trains future Jewish leaders.
Along these same lines goes the
organization B'nai B'rith is spon-
soring, the A. Z. A., which trains
youths predisposed toward the
the B'nai B'rith. For example T.
Hubert Plant.
ization work which helps immi-
grants to find themselves and be-
come naturalized.
Besides that B'nai B'rith contri-
butes liberally to the Zionist move-
ment and to the famous Youth
Aliyah (which is overwhelming in-
terest to Mr. Harry Simonhoff.)
Also there are hospitals, homes
for the aged, and orphanages sup-
ported by the B'nai B'rith.
That's enough to satisfy any
younger generation as to why ev-
ery Jewish Dad should belong to
the B'nai B'rith. It certainly
should satisfy me, especially since
the Second Vice President of the
Fifth District is my Daddy.

German Jewry

iness makes the greatest part of
the Jewish community unemploy-
ed. Our strength threatens to
give out. We may therefore call
for help. We never forget for a
moment that a world in fear of
its freedom and security cannot
devote its entire uninterrupted at-
tention to us. We do not forget,
either, that our brothers in other
lands know their sorrows and dis-
tresses. In us lies a yearning for
unhindered life in the free air of
the world. In us is a determina-
tion to bind our existence with the
erection of a free structure. May
these words be heard in future
hours."
Meanwhile, it was learned that
that the United States Govern-
ment is trying, through diplomatic
channels, to obtain the release of
the thousands of Jews sent to con-
centration camps following last
month's mass arrests, it was r.
vealed when George L. Brandt
American consul, arrived here af'
ter studying the Jewish situation
in all parts of Germany as an of.
ficial emissary of the American
delegation to the Evian refugee
conference. Mr. Brandt's activi.
ties are said to be linked to efforts
to prevail upon Germany to allow
emigres to take a part of their
capital with them. The German
government ia reported to be wil.
ling to free Jewish prisoners pro-
vided they obtain immigration vis-
as, but such visas cannot be ob-
tained unless the refugees are per-
mitted to take some of their prop-
erty with them.
HINT BOYCOTT OF
ITALIAN GOODS
Paris, (WNS)The first hint of
what may develop into a boycott
of Italian goods paralleling the an-
ti-Nazi boycott was seen here
when an important branch office
of an American buying organiza-
tion received instructions from
New York to minimize the pur-
chase of Italian merchandise until
the official attitude of Italy to-
ward Jews is clarified.

FRESHNESS of Prize Crop Tobaccos
Another phase is the American-
THE weak part of any paper pack-
age of cigarettes is at the fold
where the U. S. Revenue Stamp is
affixed. Ic is impossible to brine the
label of the package over in order to
seal the top of the package as is
done at the bottom oi 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-
ge of Double-Mellow Old Gold
garettes 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 pio-
tection for factory freshness. The Out-
er Jacket opens from the bottom
the Inner Jacket opens from the top.
Old Gold Cigarettes are further
protected by the fact that an air
chamber is formed between the 2
Jackets of Cellophane, thus giving
the package of Double-Mellow 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
P*Pf Package of cigarettes.
, Double-Mellow Old Gold insures
to smokers it* 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.
This is because of the fact that
the Tobacco in Old Gold Cigarettes
*< M^5y fresh and not dry. As you
well know, dry grass and dry wood
burn faster than green grass and sea-
soned wood. It is the same with to-
bacco. Dry tobacco burns fast and
hot, while fresh tobacco burns slowly
because it has moisture.
Old Gold is a COOLER smoke
than an;- other cigarette because the
tobacco being Factory-Fresh and con-
taining moisture burns slowly the
smoker does not draw dry heat into
his mouth.
Since the smoker does not draw in
the dry heat of the tobacco into his
mouth and the smoke is a cool one,
there is no *~hp"rf for coughing or
throat irritation.
The smoker, therefore, who smokes
Old Gold Cigarettes enjoys a smoke
which lasts longer ... is cooler...
with no throat irritation and cough
full flavor of the natural fra-
grance of prize-crop tobaccos with-
out beat.
By using 2 Jackets of Cellophane,
OId_ Gold smokers who live in dry
sections of the country are assured
of a fresh cigarette by retention of
die moisture, whereas Old Gold
smokers in low, damp, or humid
communities are protected from ex-
cessive moisture, which prevents
them from becoming soggy.
You see, the House of Lorillard
has been making fine tobacco prod-
ucts since George Washington's day.
It Ji this skill born of 178 years of
experience that enables LorilUrd te
select, age and blend the world's fin-
est tobacco leaf into Old Gold Cig-
arettes and keep them always Factory
Fresh for the smoker.
No matter where you buy them,
Double-Mellow Old Golds will reach
you as fresh as they came off the cig-
arette machine. Let a trial package
of Double-Mellow Old Gold Ciga-
rettes tell you the rest of the story^

J3SMS2W*-! PAGE SIX THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN FRIDAY, AUGUST B. 19M THE LUNATIC (Continued from Page Three) or shop in the rear of his home, cross-legged as usual on the workbench, muttering to himself, and plying his needle through the empty air, weaving garments out of nothingness. The seasons went their courses in stately cavalcade; women labored and brought forth; the hevra kaddishah laid many in the ground. Tended by his now subdued and frightened wife, who, like many others, began to see something sinister in his silence, Reb Chaim remained secluded, not even attending the synagogue. Daily he sewed on, making imaginary garments out of the dust that was caught in the slanting rays of the setting sun. In the Intense heat of the midsummer there came the eighth day of the eleventh month which is Ab, the lion rampant. The village bore an air of deep gloom and overwhelming sadness as the residents prepared to observe the day of fasting and weeping on the morrow. Tishe B'Ab, memorial anniversary of the destruction of the Jewish commonwealth in Palestine. On the eve which marked the beginning of the fast day a slow moving stream of worshippers flowed toward the village synagogue. They walked in measured tread, with solemn pace; their heads were bowed, their eyes fixed upon the ground. Somberly dressed, as if entering a house of mourning, they approached and were taken in by the wooden frame of the shul. Inside, the house of worship presented a scene of utter desolation. The wooden benches which ordinarily served as seats were turned upside down and pushed to one end of the room, where they lay like dead animals with stiff legs upturned. The Ark of the Law was divested of its customary ornamental covering and was shrouded in black. The candle lights along the walls were not to be seen, and only the Perpetual Light before the Ark remained of the usual ilumination. On tha floor were crowded &• mourners, the women and children in a rear corner. They sat, young and old, the ruddy-faced inkeeper, the burly teamster, and the gentle faced, white-bearded rabbi, barefoot and cross-legged on the floor in Oriental fashion. Each one held in one hand a small, flickering candle, and in the other he held a prayer book opened to the elegiac Lamentations. They sway ed to and fro, hypnotically, monotonously, each one to a different rhythm. The candles in their hands gutted and gasped and lit the faces of their holders to reveal sunken cheeks and burning, tearfilled eyes. From the half-darkness came the dirgeful drone of the cantor as he chanted: How doth the city sit solitary. That was full of people! How is she become as a widow! She that was great among the nations, And princess among the provinces, How is she become tributary! As the voice faded away, the low murmur of the worshippers rose to a mighty wail. It filled the tiny synagogue and overflowed into the streets and rose to challenge the grinning moon. The black Ark-covering billowed as if the spirit of mourning had entered into it. For It is written: Let tears run down like a river day and night. Thus, thus, into the night. Suddenly, when the words had been repeated over and over again and the night had grown old, when the children who had watched fearfully the bitter weeping of their fathers were sleeping against the bosoms of their mothers, when there was but a steady moaning, a shriek pierced the air. It broke the mournful coma of the worshippers and it echoed and reechoed and bounded from wall to wall and terrified the weary congregation. The worshippers turned and strained and sought to see from where the unearthly shriek had come. Little ones began to whimper and mothers hastily unbuttoned their blouses and offered their nipples to the infants to keep them silent Then a cry came from the front of the synagogue and, turning, the congregation saw on the darkened pulpit on which the chazan is accustomed to chant the prayers before the Ark, the face and figure of Reb Chaim, the madman. How he had come no one knew. His wife was nowhere to be seen. But Reb Chaim stood swaying on the little elevation and the dim gleam from the Perpetual Light sent eerie rays to illumine his scrawny, u wk-nosed face with a pale light. He be*-" to speak, and his sermon was a queer combination of quotations from Lamentations and mad invective. "I am the man that hath seen affliction By the rod of His wrath. He hath led me and caused me to walk In darkness and not in light I am become a derision to all my people, And their song all day. "'Poor Reb Chaim!' Thus ye speak of me. Fools! I have sinned, aye. Israel has sinned. I have sent forth my seed to wax into wickedness. And I am punished. Israel is punisned! "Jerusalem hath grievously sinned, Therefore she is become as one unclean. Her filthiness was in her skirts, She was not mindful of her end; Therefore is she come down wonderfully, She hath no comforter. The iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater Than the sin of Sedom." None could tell whether he spoke of Jerusalem, as it is written, or of Leah, his sinful daughter. To the rabbi it seemed as if there were no distinction before God between the one and the other. "Fools!" cried Reb Chaim, rolling his eyes wildly as he shouted. "Hear me! I proclaim ye thrice fools, hypocrites, and accursed ones." His hearers, frightened and curious, were silent. Even the children were stilled in terror. The lunatic raised his arms and held them above his head, and, turning his eyes heavenward, he addressed a mad prayer: "Give ear, oh Maker of the fire, to the voice of Reb Chaim. Turn not away, oh Master of the thunder. Cruse them who blasphemes Thy Holy Name. They have betrayed Thy seed, the heroes, the strong men of the desert. They have spit upon the tombs of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, men of might, wielders of the bow. They sit and mourn for Zion, but they lie." Turning to his hearers, he shouted: "Who is there among ye who in his heart wishes Zion? Where is he that seeks Jerusalem? What! Hear I no answer? Aye, ye fools. Ye seek not Zion, but tears and mourning. Ye seek not the sweet, green ground of Sharon, but the cold, hard dirt of exile. Behold! It is the Lord who speaks through me. I shall give ye spades and hoes and goodly seed. Go then if ye will, and build me a habitation in Zion. CONGREGATION BETH DAVID 135 N. W. 3rd Avenua (MIAMI'S PIONEER CONGREGATION) MAX SHAPIRO.

Reb Simon, the shammes, who was sitting next to the rabbi, turned to that venerable sage and, shaking his head sadly, inquired, "What foolishness uttereth from the mouths of babes and fools; is it not so, master?" But the aged teacher, who had heard of the waste place that was now Zion, did not reply. Neither did his eyes return to the square letters in the book in his hand. Instead, in his eyes was a faraway look, and his heart was sorely troubled.

Leve, general chairman of the Convention Com mittee. Organized two years ago in the East on an experimental basis, the Sons and Daughters of J. W. V., has enjoyed a phenomenal growth. The Junior Auxiliary now has units attached to a majority of the J. W. V. Posts. All members I of the Sons and Daughters are outfitted in natty blue and white I uniforms. Many units have their own bands and fife and drum I corps. Principal business on the agenda of the Convention will be the election of National Officers, the launching of a National publica tion and the beginning of a membership campaign. Charles C. Eisenstein of Newark, Chairman of the J. W. V. Committee, directing the Sons and Daughters of J. W. V., is planning to have a representative of the Junior Auxiliary address the Jewish War Veterans Convention. U. S. HOSTILE TO FASCIST STATES New York, (WNS)— Public opinion in the United States is definitely hostile to foreign dictatorial governments, a survey by the American Institute of Public Opinion revealed. Asked which side they would sympathize with if England and France have war with Germany and Italy, 65 percent replied with England and France, and gave as the chief reason for their sympathy the type of government existing in European countries. POPE IS FIGHTINC ANTI-SEMITISM IN CENTRAL EUROPE Winterton Named Refugee Chairman London, (WNS)—Lord Winterton, pro-Arab spokesman and head of the British delegation to the inter-governmental refugee a i d conference at Evian, has been agreed upon as permanent chairman of the inter-governmental committee on assistance to refugees, which was scheduled to meet on August 3rd in the British Foreign Office for the first time since its creation at Evian last month. Myron C. Taylor, head of the American delegation, and Senator Henri Berenger of France, who presided at Evian, are among those named as vice-presidents. The other vice-presidents will be selected from among the representatives of Latin-American and Scandinavian powers. A prominent American is reported to have heen agreed upon as director of the committee. Lord Winterton has twice warned Germany that unless she cooperates with the committee by allowing refugees to take their property with them, the work of the committee is likely to end in failure. Vatican City, (WNS)—Pope Pius is not only warring militantly against racism and anti-Semitism in Italy but is bringing pressure to bear on Catholic Church leaders in many other European lands, especially Poland, to combat antiSemitism there, according to re ports in Vatican circles. These same sources declare that the Pontiff is also anxious to find a modus operandi for bringing about Arab-Jewish peace in Palestine. COMMISSION NOT TO HEAR LEADER Jerusalem, (WNS, Palcor Agency)—The Partition Commission, headed by Sir John Woodhead, has declined to hear testimony by Menahem Ussishkin, Chairman of the Zionist Actions Committee, it was disclosed here. It was willing, however, to accept a written statement containing the views of the Veteran Zionist leader. The fact that his personal evidence was rejected was discovered as Mr. Cssishkin submitted a lengthy memorandum to the Commission describing in full his attitude toward the proposed tri-section of Palestine and toward British policy as a whole. The Commission, asked to hear Mr. Ussishkin, informed that it was ready to hear only practical criticism of the partition scheme and was not interested in the principle of opposition to partition. Moreover, it was not concerned with any other solution not directly linked to partition. The Commission thus took formal notice of Mr. Ussishkin's known position as one if the outstanding opponents of the conclusions of the Peel Commission that partition constituted the only solution for the Arab-Jewish impasse in Palestine. The Vaad Leumi and the Jewish Agency Executive, after canvassing the results of Mr. Ussishkin's unequivocal objections to partition if he should appear before the Woodhead Commission agreed that should be present the point of view of the t "Nein-sagers" (opponents of partition.) BRITH WILL HOLO MEETING An important meeting of the local B'nai B'rith Lodge will be held at Beth David Talmud Torah hall on next Tuesday evening August 9th, beginning at 8:00 o'clock when very important business will be transacted. A feature of this meeting will be an address by Mr. Abe Aronovitz former city solicitor of Miami on "The Jew in this American Democracy." Mr. Aronovitz has made a thorough study of this important subject in his work for the past several years as a member of the anti-Defamation Committee. Following his address Mr. Aronovitz will reply to queries regarding the Jewish contributions in the progress of the United States. Election of delegates to the State Convention of B'nai B'rith Lodges will be held and reports of the var ious committees including the anti-Defamation Committee will be given. Unusually fine refreshments will be served to the members following the formal business meeting. All members are urged to attend. Hitler Decorates Ford On Birthday Detroit, (WNS)—The Grand Cross of the German Eagle the highest decoration Germany can bestow upon a foreigner, was awarded to Henry Ford by Chancellor Hitler on the occasion of the motor magnate's 75th birthday. German consular officials said the Cross was in recognition of Ford's pioneering work in motorization. Zolotkoff, Pioneer of Yiddish Press Dead Amityville, L. I., (WNS)—Leon Zolotkoff, one of the pioneers of the Yiddish press in America, died here at the age of 70. A native of Russia, he came to this country in the early 1880's, settling in Chicago, where he founded the Chicago Daily News (Tageblatt.) which was later merged with the Jewish Morning Journal. Zolotkoff was one of the founders of the Zionist movement in the west, serving as grand master of the Order Sons of Zion. TUNE IN SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:60 The Jewish Floridian will again present another in iti seriee of weekly broadcasts this coming Sunday morning over Station WKAT (1600 k. o.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's full of interesting news and comments and music. Ford Asked To Make Sta nd Clear Detroit, (WNS)—Detroit Jewish Chronicle appealed to Henry Ford to intercede personally in putting a stop to the circulation of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Utilizing the occasion of Mr. Fords 75th birthday, The Chronicle urges him to take a hand in this issue personally and to condemn the lie against the Jewish people, since his name is being used by antiSemites throughout the world in book. "Jews have tried to reason with anti-Semites and to tell them that \ the dissemination of th? forged | the statements of Henry Ford of 1921 are no longer valid; that they have been nullified by the apology of 1927. But our word is weak i compared with the effect that Mr. Ford's own statement would have on the disseminators of hatred against us. We are in position to supply Mr. Ford with a list of organizations and individuals who are using his name and quotations from his writings as part of their dastardly work. A word from Mr. Ford will help to put a stop to this horrible business. We) ask him at this time to take a hand personally in this matter and to completi statement to the late Louis Marshall, of discrediting the malicious libels contained in the Protocols. We know of no more sacred work that Mr. Ford could enlist in at the present time than that of cooperating in dealing a death blow Jo religious and racial hatred." LA GUARDIA IS READ OUT OF ITALIAN RACE Rome, (WNS)—Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia of New York, who is of Italian and Jewish parentage, was -ead out of the Italian race by the newspaper II Tevere. Replying to another Rome paper. II Piccolo, which recently referred to La Guardia as the "popular Italo-American mayor of New York," II Tevere said he had no right to belong to "our race." "Popular La Guardia?" II Tevere declared. "Without doubt. At the time of sanctions, in fact, he won large and well merited popularity by delivering a series of infamous speeches against Italy. Seeking mongrel that he is, he takes advantage of his origin (geographical, but not ethnological, because he does not belong to our race) to bring pressure on Italians of New York and open an abyss between them and Fascist organizations." American Tourist Traffic to Reich Off Berlin, (WNS)—Intensified Nazi anti-Semitism and the German spy indictment in the United States are two of the principal reasons advanced by travel agencies here for a 50 percent decline in American tourist traffic to Germany this year. Antipathy to the Nazi regime and the conquest of of Austria are other factors cited. GERMAN JEM E Berlin, (WNS)—Reacting to the new community law which deprives Jewish religious communities of the right to tax their members while reducing them to the status of voluntary organizations the Reichs Representation of Jews in Germany, which has been the central agency of German Jewry since 1934 in directing the work of retraining, emigration and cultural activities, reorganized itself along centralized lines as the Reichs Union of Jews in Germany. Under the new setup all provincial Jewish organizations, including the influential Prussian Provincial Union, are to be dissolved while the smaller communities are %  to be merged into district communities. Because of the voluntary nature of membership in Jewish communities under the new law, there will be limitations on the amount of emigration, welfare and other aid provided to members. It is understood that one way of compelling membership in the communities will be a request to Jewish relief agencies abroad to limit their assistance to emigres affiliated with Jewish communities. There will be no change in the 50-50 division of community offices between Zionists and nonZionists. Dr. Leo Baeck, chief rabbi of Berlin, who was named president of the new organization, announced the creation of the Reichs Union as a united Jewish body in a statement published in the Centralverein Zeitung. Rabbi Baeck said: "The most earnest tasks lie before us. In a situation that has scarcely been equalled in the oft severe history of our people we have endeavored not without success to banish the specter of chaos. All that has befallen us we have met with trust in God and reliance in our self-respect. The continuing of our existence has been accomplished by reorienating work through schools, in preparation for emigration. We have readjusted ourselves inwardly and have created new forms of spiritual and material help. The national organization will do everything to further this course and to find new possibilities of help. "But there can be no doubt that this continual and extraordinary strain on all our energies has its limit. The domain of our existence daily becomes narrower. Elimination from the professions and bus(Continued on Page Eight) i REFUGEES PLAN VIRGINIA COLONY Norfolk, Va., (WNS)—Plans for settling 25 German Jewish refugee families on farms near Richmond, Virginia, within the next two weeks were announced here by James C. Page, official of a local customs brokerage firm. Mr. Page said that the families are to be admitted to the United States under the German immigration quota. Their transfer is being financed by private funds. I

NUMBER 30 TRUE AMERICANISM PREVAILS When Finley Moore, candidate for the United States Senate from Florida campaigned on an un-American platform recently, very little attention was paid to him because we in Florida had faith in the common sense and good judgment of Floridians. When Gerald Winrod noted anti-Semite who personally handed out copies of the infamous Protocols in Miami, and who was driven out of this area on two different occasions by the concerted efforts of local anti-Defamation members of B'nai B'rith, became a candidate for the Senate from the State of Kansas, we became somewhat worried. We did not know what Kansas might do, and we knew what the effect of a nomination at the hands of the Republican party would mean to antiSemites everywhere. The people have spoken at the polls. Kansas, as should have been expected, turned thumbs down on Winrod. Instead of running first as so many political authorities had predicted, he ran a poor third. Of course, the courageous stand of men like Hamilton, national chairman of the Republican Party, the noted liberal editor William Allen White and others, helped clear up the situation. Winrod who it appears had unlimited money, said to have been supplied by Hitler and his propagandists, did not hesitate to spend enormous sums to obtain the nomination. We sincerely believe that Hitler has been told by the citizens of this country that his ideas and ideals have no place in the United States. We Americans want none of the Winrod or Moore ilk in this country. We want real Americans, those to whom Hitlerism, Fascism, Communism and the like are anathema. Once again the American people have spoken. Once again the light of pitiless publicity has brought results. SIMPSON URGES DIRECT ACTION London, (WNS)— Elimination of economic and political conditions in Eastern Europe, especially organized anti-Semitic propaganda, that threatens to aggravate the already acute refugee problem by bringing about a new wave of Jewish persecution, is urged by Sir John Hope Simpson in a preliminary report of a survey of the refugee question published under the auspices of the Royal Institute of International Affairs. Recognized as an expert on refugee problems by virtue of his work with the Refugee Settlements in Athens from 1926 to 1930, Sir John recommended radical and preventative action, rather than superficial palliatives, to deal with the situation. Specifically, he proposed agrarian reform in Poland to overcome dire poverty among the peasantry, which has resulted in discrimination against Jews. JUDEANS PLAN NEW REGIMENT London, Ontario, (WNS)—Raising of a regiment of 1,000 Canadian Jews to go to Palestine to relieve one of the British military units now on duty there was urged by the Ottawa delegation in a resolution presented to the Ontario Young Judea Conference. The resolution proposed that the conference call on the Canadian Zionist Organization "to raise immediately an army of 1000 Young Judeans who are prepared to go to Eretz Israel to lay down their lives, if necessary, for the defense of the Empire, Eretz Israel and democracy," that the Canadian Z. O. "be requested to contact the British War Office in London, England, to make arrangements to arm and equip these 1,000 Young Judeans as a British military unit to replace one of the British regiments now protecting Eretz Israel" and that the conference send copies of the resolutions to all Zionist organizations I WRITE AS I PLEASE At a meeting of a group of civic minded citizens held recently, one of the leading members of this community remarked that in his Opinion, there are too many Jewish radio programs on Sunday. This is something to think about. The indiscriminate use of the word "Rabbi" causes us to blush with shame and pain, particularly when we recently read in the papers that a "Grand Rabbi" was arrested on the charge of smuggling dope concealed in holy books. Fortunately, this man is a fraud—he never was a Rabbi, has no congregation and never has had a congregation. Yet, the damage was done. What can we do about it? Let us stop the promiscuous use of this honored title and restrict it only to those men who are truly consecrated to religious leadership in Israel.—In this connection, it is understood, that right here in Miami, a number of our people, having no connection with any Synagogue use the title "Rabbi" in order to get the benefit of reduced rates for telephone service, transportation, etc. This obnoxious practice should be speedily suppressed. There is manifestly a need for a Jewish community center in Miami—a place where our organizations may meet amidst pleasant surroundings. The Y. M. H. A. has started in the right direction, and it is possible that this may be used as the nucleus for such a purpose. Another important and vital nee( ]— a centralized Greater Miami Talmud Torah. In establishing such a school, a cimpetent staff of teachers can be employed and our children—and many adults—may be able to obtain a real Hebrew education. Many leading citizens have expressed themselves along these lines—may their expressions soon take tangible form. Speaking of anti-defamation— an educational campaign should be inaugurated among our own people. Since the Jewish people are so much in the limelight, our every act and deed is scrutinized. Thoughtless acts bring about unpleasant reactions. For example, during the past year, many stores on Miami Beach unnecessarily covered the entire fronts of their stores with Hebrew and Yiddi.-h signs. This is overdoing advertising and is very distasteful to the fine sensibilities of our people. A simple sign would be more effective and more dignified. Are you a member of our community? Are you a member of one of our splendid synagogues? Are you affiliated with the many altruistic organizations in our midst? If not, you are not fulfilling your obligations and placing the responsibility of these much needed institutions upon the shoulders of a small group of our people. Unite with your fellowmen—accept your share of communal responsibility—you will derive great pleasure from doing your part. in the British Isles, New Zealand and other British possessions "to have them inaugurate a similar plan as suggested in this reaoluThe Lunatic (BY SIDNEY J. JACOBS) The pious inhabitants of the village, hidden in a little-traversed corner of the Pale of Settlement in the great empire of Matushka Russiya, had become reconciled to having in their midst a madman, one whom it had pleased the Holy One, Blessed be He, to take from the world of the sane and to cast into the many-shadowed realm of the senseless. At first the unfortunate lunatic had been a terrifying novelty in the little hamlet, where life as a rule proceeded with monotonous prosaicness. But after the morbid attraction that insanity holds for the sane had worn off, he had become an accepted institution, like the drippings from the Sabbath candles or the creaking wooden bridge that straddled the nearby stream. For a short time, the village had gained a questionable prominence among the few other communities with which it had intercourse. Its inhabitants who carried their pack wares to the villages within a conservative radius became centers of interest and were asked to relate, before gossipy housewives and common ne'er-do-wells in the inns, the story of "their" lunatic. But the inherent dullness of the village soon absorbed this unexpected event and life resumed its liesurely ritual-laden course. The lunatic was Reb Chaim ben Reb Yitzhak (may his memory be for a blessing!' He was a small, shriveled man, with a short, neat beard and tired brown eyes. For many years, previous to his misfortune, he had been the local tailor, a painstaking, quiet worker, whose bespectacled, hawk-nosed face, bending over the embryo of a Kaftan, had been a familiar sight in the village. Reb Chaim, near-sighted, modest, unobtrusive, was one of the individuals in a group who are taken for granted as moderately learned in the Law and possessed an excellent memory for retaining choice quotations fro mthe Scriptures. Reb Chaim lived with his shrewdish, buxom wife, Hannah, the daughter of Reb Levi Baer, and their sole offspring, a girl named Leah. She had been observed by critical neighbors ever since the day when she had been sprung, closing forever the womb of her mother as if to preclude the coming of others who would dispute her autonomy. They saw her now, the quarreling, posessive child become a wildly beautiful maiden of sixteen. The neighbors had turned away, disgustedly, saying tha tmore appropriately she should have been named Lilith. Her pious father regretted the fact that there will be no son to say the Kaddish for his soul after his passing. He disapproved of the actions of his pagan daughter, who like his wife, treated him with unconcealed contempt. But he retained his customary docility and wove in and out with his long needle, sitting cross-legged on his work-bench and murmuring, "The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart." The full-lipped, firm-breasted Leah became the symbol of wickedness in the village. How much of her reputation she had earned and hoW much was hearsay none could tell; but when she strode through the market place, her well-formed thighs pressing against her skirts, she represented to the villagers the ultimate in carnality. Her father, taking his place for a stolen hour on some afternoons around the long study table in the dimly lit Beth Hamidrash, could not help seeing the eyes of the young students leaving the large, yellow pages of their Talmud folios and gazing out of the window, following the swinging buttocks of his daughter as she walked by. He was conscious of the eyes of the elder scholars resting upon him in pitying and curious glances, as if they wondered how this pious tailor could have begotten such a worldly creature. It was on a hot summer's evening, when the villagers sweated and comforted themselves by remembering the great heat waves of their childhood, that Isaac the Orphan, feeble-minded gamin who was given shelter in the Talmud Torah, came running, his bare feet patting on the hot dusty road. To the cottage of Reb Chaim he flew, where the tailor was sitting in the gloom, meditating, and his wife, standing nearby, was gossiping with a neighbor. "Reb Chaim!" cried the boy, panting. "Reb Chaim! Your daughter Leah—she lies in the field yonder with a Goy from V ." The shout was heard by the many villagers sitting in front of their houses, and those close to th-i tailor saw his thin face pale and his lips tighten. The domineering Hannah ran to the dirty child and boxed him on the ears. "For shame, you cursed one! Begine!" she cried. But Reb Chaim put a restraining hand upon her. Me rose slowly, as if in a trance. "Let him be," he said, and, turning to the messenger, he added, "Come, my child. Come, take me to—the place." He followed the eager child down the street, neither hearing the cries of his wife nor the cautions of his neighbors. Unheeding he walked into the night, a small, stooped figure. What happened in the field that evening has never been revealed. Neither Leah nor her lover was ever seen again in that section of the Pale and although rumors were frequently heard that she had become the mistress of the provincial governor or that she had died of a venereal disease, she was as one who has departed from this life. As for Reb Chaim, he was found on the next morning, lying in a stupor under a tree whose bark had been stripped many years before by a bolt of lightning. Taken home, he was labored over by th learned curers of the village. Amulets were placed upon his body and on the walls of his room. Compresses containing wild roots were laid upon his head. Psalms were said for himjjya minyan of ten learned mm. *Bot although he regained his normal bodily health, he became a senseless ( wide-eyed lunatic, oblivious to all that went on and content to remain constantly in his little tail( Continued on Page Six) j ;

Ten thousand delegate* from every state in the Union •re expected to attend. THE WORLD'S WINDOW -By LUDWIG LEWISOHNWhat is it that divides men so cruelly ? Hunger and the hunt for bread ? Yes and no. If men were wholly sane they could sit down together and take counsel and seek to establish according to cool and scientific plans and economic equilibrium for the world. But they are prevented from doing so by darker and anterior passions. Thus, for instance, customs barriers are nine times out of ten barriers of hatred and of self-assertion. Enlightened economic selfinterest would dictate their being abolished; hate and self-assertiveness keep them ruinously intact. This hate-filled self-assertiveness is at the root of nearly all the worst ills of civilization; it is at the root of cruelty and persecution. It alone—and nothing elseis the beast in man. All high religions have sought to weaken this demon. Even today the Roman Pontiff, stung to the quick at last, protests bitterly against the unhuman horrors to which this selfassertiveness ia leading men. Let us see how this dreadful passion works. It says through those possessed by-it: "You must be like me or I will destroy you, cast you out. For only what I am is good. What you are is evil. And if I let the evil which I have stamped as you persist, I may begin to doubt my goodness and superiority. And rather than risk that I will destroy you and me and civilization." Observe under the aspect of this analysis Nazis, Fascists, militant nativists. The disease attacks even reasonably civilized peoples. Why should the Czechish government ever, even for a year or two, have outraged the cultural sensibilities of the people of Egerland? It is really nobody's business whether a man wants to live within the circle of Czechish or German culture. So long as he pays his taxes and keeps out of jail, it is insult and oppression even to ask him what language he prefers to speak or what poets to read or in what place and according to what principle to worship. As soon as a government or a majority begins officially to ask that question, it is in principle already inquisitor, persecutor, tyrant and he of whom the question is asked is already a slave. To the critical and enlightened intelligence there is no virtue and no grace and no profit in uniformity. But that is what the worldmob, the rabble wants. "Be like me or I will destroy you;" It wants the uniform of both the body and the mind. All its rationalizations, that is, its explanations after the fact are the intellectual garbage. It is spiritually insecure; it distrusts its own strength and Its own values. It wants to M iwcted op." %  irwMts to obliterate all but itself and the 'likeness of itself. At, the slightest perception of difference it shies like a frightened animal. Next it rears and kicks and bites and tears asunder. "I must be everything and you nothing!" That is its animal shout as it persecutes and pursues—usually the higher than itself. The disease has but to be diagnosed to be recognized. Why should all partakers of German culture be as like as peas? Why .should all citizens of the Soviet Union babble the same formulae? Why do Arabs (some Arabs and those hired thugs) fight for a predominantly Arab Palestine? Why do American employment agencies turn down the applicant if his or her "religion" is Jewish? There is no reason in the realm of mind or spirit or even the practical business of life. Multiformity of character, taste, culture, faith, philosophy—these are to the enlightened soul the very sources of life's wealth, interest, fascination. Would any one in his senses want all individuals to be alike, to be like Ford cars, turned out in series? They why should the culturegroups and, if any one likes, the racial groups and the religious groups not co-exist either in separate polities or within the same polity and political structure in an attitude of mutual appreciation and enrichment? Why? There is no answer except the dulf roar of the mob-brute: "You must be like me or I will destroy you." Such is the foundation of the Jewish problem, of the Jewish tragedy. Of the inner tragedy of the modern Jew, too. It is the tragedy of the assimilationist who, by trying to be other than he is and as God meant him to be, plays into the hands and claws of the mob-brute and agrees that uniformity is a good. How beautifully we transcended this fellacy long ages ago! How shameful it is for any Jew to fall into and share it, the source of all our miseries, rather than remember and abide by the teaching of the immortal Midrash: "If a man casts coins according to one form each coin is like the other. The King of Kings, the Holy One, blessed be He, however, casts each man in the form of the first man and yet is no man like his fellow. For this reason every individual soul can say: For the sake of me was the world created." tion with their mother, Mrs. Neal Finkelstein in the Rose Marie cottage at Jacksonville Beach, left Sunday for their home in New York City. Mrs. Alexander Jacobs announces the engagement of her daughter, Jeanette Ball, to Benjamin Eastman, of this city, formerly of St. Louis, Mo., son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Eastman of St. Louis. The marriage will take place in the Fall. Miss Jacobs is the daughter of the late Alexander Jacobs of Jacksonville. Y. M. H. I.

Suddenly he whispered to us reverently This is the place where Elijah is supposed to have uttered his great challenge to our people:" How long holt ye between two opinions? If the eternal be God follow Him, if Baal, then follow him! We stood speechless and motionless even as did the people who had heard Elijah on that memorable day.

MAMCHE8, Cantor 7 MerliSlan Avinut •Phon. S-2013 Synagogue Services: Daily—| mornings at 8:00 a. m.; evenings at 6:45 p. m. Saturday—mornings at 9:00 a. m.; afternoons at 6:30 p. m., followed by Shalosh S'oodoss at which the Rabbi speaks and the Cantor sings. TISH'O B'OV Tisho B'Ov the final day of the three weeks of mourning over the destruction of our ancient temple in Jerusalem, falling on Saturday is postponed to Sunday. This important fast day begins Saturday evening before sunset. Services will be held Saturday night at 8:00 m., and Sunday morning at 7:30 a. m., during which the "Book of Lamentation" and the Kinoth will be read. Tisho B'Ov has recurrently prov ed to be the most tragic day in Jewish history. It marks, not only the date of destruction of the two Jewish temples; it was the date on which God decreed that Israel must wander in the wilderness for forty years, the date on which the Jews of Spain were expelled from their adopted land, etc., etc. Attend Tisho B'Ov services this year and be sure to bring your children that they too may be impressed with the solemnity of this day. GREETINGS Rabbi and Mrs. Moses Mescheloff and daughter, and Cantor Maurice Mamches have returned from their summer vacation and wish to greet all their friends and mem*">rs of the Beth Jacob Congregation. They hope that God will give them continued strength to serve their community to the best of their ability, and that many a happy occasion will arise for seeing their friends and members during the coming year. HEBREW SCHOOL Miss S. Shpall, our assistant teacher, who has taken care of all our daily Hebrew School classes during the absence of the Cantor, will take a three week vacation beginning next Sunday. During this time the Cantor will conduct all classes. Our Hebrew School never closes. Classes are held weekday mornings. Surroundings are cool and pleasant; instruction is enjoyable and most worth while. If you have a child of public school age who is now yet receiving Jewish instruction, why not register him Drama.

BUILDING The entrance to our new Synagogue building has been beautified during the summer months with a most beautiful set of banisters and lamps. At the meeting of the Board of Directors held this week plans for a set of mahogany doors were approved. These will be installed shortly. The plans for a magnificient Aaron Kodesh were also presented, and work on this is expected to begin soon. The Sisterhood of our Congregation has decided to present to the new Synagogue building a lai % bookcase in memory of the beloved, late Rabbi Rosenbloom who so faithfully served our Congregation to his last day, and whose extensive library is now the possession of the Synagogue. This will also be erected in the new building. HOLY DAY PREPARATIONS In preparation for the Holy Days our congregation has decided to purchase a hundred new "taleissim," prayer shawls, and a sufficient number of unif o r m Machsorim to assure every worshipper in our congregation with a uniform machzor for the Holy Days this year. The Sisterhood has pledged itself to purchase an equal number of Sidurim in both Hebrew and English for the use of Sabbath worshippers.

ALBERT PALLOT Here's a question that has bothered the B. B. younger generation for some time: "Why is the B'nai B'rith so important to Daddy? He is always going to meetings." When they decided about paying tribute to the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery before the last convention, that objective probably pleased Mr. Rudy Adler, local well-known soldier, and made him attend a few more meetings. Mr. Milton Friedman and Mr. Sidney Segall no doubt were en thusiastic when they heard about B'nai B'rith's new president, Mr. Henry Monsky, who has an L L D., and, who knows, may also have been a good secretary. Then, locally, Marcia and Chas. Adelman know why their father, Mr. Nathan Adelman, attends those meetings. You can't be advisor to an up-and-coming organization like the local A. Z. A., without being active. Mr. Benjamin Le Vine, efficiently expert treasurer of B'nai B'rith never is bothered by having to attend meetings because Mrs. Ben being president of the Council of Jewish Women knows just how it feels. Then there's Mr. Lou Shochet who has too great a nose for news not to attend any given important meeting. At every meeting is Mr. President Elry Stone who is where he is because of that "something worth while" which Dr. Coret mentioned in last week's B. B. Briefs. NOTIL PATtlH f MOTU MSOTO But those mentioned seem to be personal reasons for attending B'nai B'rith meetings. Since the younger generation still was bothered about why its particular Daddy went so often to those meetings, I asked the highest ranking officer in the state (his official title is Second Vice President of the Fifth District) to explain why every Jewish man ought to become a member of the B'nai B'rith. He was extremely interested in the question and thought for a long time behind his pipe smoke before answering. Then he said: "First, B'nai B'rith is the only place where all Jews can meet on neutral territory to solve their difficulties." He was very proud of the B'nai B'rith's anti-Defamation work against subversive movements the world over and added that it was "specially important" now. The Hillel Foundation work in a dozen universities is another important reason why every Jew should belong to B'nai B'rith. It trains future Jewish leaders. Along these same lines goes the organization B'nai B'rith is sponsoring, the A. Z. A., which trains youths predisposed toward the the B'nai B'rith. For example T. Hubert Plant. ization work which helps immigrants to find themselves and become naturalized. Besides that B'nai B'rith contributes liberally to the Zionist movement and to the famous Youth Aliyah (which is overwhelming interest to Mr. Harry Simonhoff.) Also there are hospitals, homes for the aged, and orphanages supported by the B'nai B'rith. That's enough to satisfy any younger generation as to why every Jewish Dad should belong to the B'nai B'rith. It certainly should satisfy me, especially since the Second Vice President of the Fifth District is my Daddy. DOROTHY ANN LEVIN. German Jewry Will Reorganize (Continued from Page One) iness makes the greatest part of the Jewish community unemployed. Our strength threatens to give out. We may therefore call for help. We never forget for a moment that a world in fear of its freedom and security cannot devote its entire uninterrupted attention to us. We do not forget, either, that our brothers in other lands know their sorrows and distresses. In us lies a yearning for unhindered life in the free air of the world. In us is a determination to bind our existence with the erection of a free structure. May these words be heard in future hours." Meanwhile, it was learned that that the United States Government is trying, through diplomatic channels, to obtain the release of the thousands of Jews sent to concentration camps following last month's mass arrests, it was r. vealed when George L. Brandt American consul, arrived here a f' ter studying the Jewish situation in all parts of Germany as an of. ficial emissary of the American delegation to the Evian refugee %  conference. Mr. Brandt's activi. ties are said to be linked to efforts to prevail upon Germany to allow emigres to take a part of their capital with them. The German government ia reported to be wil. ling to free Jewish prisoners provided they obtain immigration visas, but such visas cannot be obtained unless the refugees are permitted to take some of their property with them. HINT BOYCOTT OF ITALIAN GOODS Paris, (WNS)—The first hint of what may develop into a boycott of Italian goods paralleling the anti-Nazi boycott was seen here when an important branch office of an American buying organization received instructions from New York to minimize the purchase of Italian merchandise until the official attitude of Italy toward Jews is clarified. KOSHER ZI0N SAUSAGE CO. INC. 37th St. and Normal Are CHICAGO, ILL. Delicious Corned Bee' Pickled, Cooked and Smoked Meats DEMAND IT FROM YOUR DELICATESSEN NOW OBTAINABLE EVERYWHERE IN FLORIDA Do You Know Why OLD GOLD Cigarettes Are Always Fresh? 2 Jackets of Cellophane Seal-in tKe FRESHNESS of Prize Crop Tobaccos Another phase is the AmericanT HE weak part of any paper package of cigarettes is at the fold where the U. S. Revenue Stamp is affixed. Ic is impossible to brine the label of the package over in order to seal the top of the package as is done at the bottom oi the package. The single Jacket of Cellophane, which is found on all paper packages of cigarettes, closes the package as best as can be done at the top of the package. However, every packg e of Double-Mellow Old Gold garettes has 2 Jackets of Cellophane instead of one. • By using an extra jacket of Cellophane and inverting the outer Jacket and sealing it completely at the bottom, the top, or weak part of the package of Old Golds, is made airtight and thereby given double piotection for factory freshness. The Outer Jacket opens from the bottom — the Inner Jacket opens from the top. Old Gold Cigarettes are further protected by the fact that an air chamber is formed between the 2 Jackets of Cellophane, thus giving the package of Double-Mellow 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 protection for freshness than any other P*Pf Package of cigarettes. Double-Mellow Old Gold insures to smokers it* rich quality of Prize Crop tobacco with a maximum protection 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. This is because of the fact that the Tobacco in Old Gold Cigarettes *< M^5y§ fresh and not dry. As you well know, dry grass and dry wood burn faster than green grass and seasoned wood. It is the same with tobacco. Dry tobacco burns fast and hot, while fresh tobacco burns slowly because it has moisture. Old Gold is a COOLER smoke than an;other cigarette because the tobacco being Factory-Fresh and containing moisture burns slowly — the smoker does not draw dry heat into his mouth. Since the smoker does not draw in the dry heat of the tobacco into his mouth and the smoke is a cool one, there is no *~hp"rf for coughing or throat irritation. The smoker, therefore, who smokes Old Gold Cigarettes enjoys a smoke which lasts longer ... is cooler... with no throat irritation and cough • • full flavor of the natural fragrance of prize-crop tobaccos without beat. By using 2 Jackets of Cellophane, OId_ Gold smokers who live in dry sections of the country are assured of a fresh cigarette by retention of die moisture, whereas Old Gold smokers in low, damp, or humid communities are protected from excessive moisture, which prevents them from becoming soggy. You see, the House of Lorillard has been making fine tobacco products since George Washington's day. It Ji this skill born of 178 years of experience that enables LorilUrd te select, age and blend the world's finest tobacco leaf into Old Gold Cigarettes and keep them always Factory Fresh for the smoker. • No matter where you buy them, Double-Mellow Old Golds will reach you as fresh as they came off the cigarette machine. Let a trial package of Double-Mellow Old Gold Cigarettes tell you the rest of the story^

VICTORIA DENIES LABOR CUTS Melbourne, (WNS) — Disturbed by the increasingly anti-alien tone of the Australian press, the government of the State of Victoria issued a special statement categorically denying rumors that Jewish immigrants were slashing the wages of sweated labor. Publication of the statement coincided with the appearence of cartoons in The Age and The Herald depicting streams of immigrants entering Australia while immigration officials stand by indifferently. The Argus printed two anonymous letters, one accusing Jews of cutting wages of sweated labor, and the other demanding a ban on "indiscriminate Jewish immigration." DIES COMMITTEE TO BAN BUND Washington, D.

"We aren't going to present a sounding board for their causes," he said, "hut If they want to appear and bring in documents such as membership and dues lists, *e11 let them be heard." Dies revealed his committee had already uncovered "startling information" of such a nature that the public and Congress "will insist that we carry on the work beyond the present January 3rd deadline."

Lists of half and quarter-Jews are already being prepared, it is reported, to facilitate their removal from positions in the universities and government departments. New York, (WNS)— Unless Jews abandon their opposition to Fascism they can expect Italy to proceed with a complete program of anti-Semitism against the Jews of Italy, Ugo V. d'Annunzio, son of the late Gabriel d'Annunzio, declares in a long letter to the editor of the New York Herald-Tribune. A naturalized American citizen, d'Annunzio bluntly asserts that Italy has embarked on a racist program in retaliation for Jewish opposition to Fascism. "Jewish anti-Fascism has struck and Fascism has struck back," he says. "And in this exchange of blows Fascism was not the loser." After stating that the recent racial policy in Italy is a departure from Italy's traditional tolerance in matters of race and religion, d'Annunzio reviews at considerable length the position of the Jew in Italy, citing the names of many Jews who held and still hold high political, cultural and economic positions in Italy. He then charges that the Jews "outside of Italy made themselves responsible for a reaction against their brethren living in Italy." Emphasizing that no anti-Semitic measures have yet been taken, d'Annrnzio declares that "if from Jewish press and pulpit throughout the world the daily denunciation of Italian Fascism continues, if the Jewish-inspired campaign of defamation of everything Italian goes on unabated, it is very unlikely that the Italian government will restrict its racial program to theories alone. And could it be expected from any other government to act differently in similar circumstances? The Jewish problem in Italy has now become a problem for the Jews throughout the world to solve. And upon their decision rests the fate of the Jews in Italy." BEN BERNIE, ORCHESTRA ARE BARRED FROM HOTEL Toronto, (WNS)—Denied adadmission to a Port Stanley hotel because they are Jews, Ben Bernie and his orchestra, who are on a dance tour of Ontario Province resorts, were forced to spend the night in tourist cabins near here. SOCIETY WORLD CONGRESS TO BEHELD SOON Detroit, (WNS)—Opposition to "any movement against race, creed or color," was voiced by Vincent Giuliano, publisher of the Italian Tribune of America, Detroit paper, in a statement to the Detroit Jewish Chronicle. Guiliano said he did not know "what has happened between the Italian Jews and the Italian government," adding that "Italy has always been a country without prejudices against races or creeds, and I cannot conceive the reason for any change now." Paris—The 1939 World Congress against Racialism and Anti-Semitism will be held in New York City, it was decided by delegates to the 1938 Congress held here. The Congress decided to alter the name of the organization by omitting the words "and antiSemitism" to more accurately describe its full scope and purpose. Four hundred delegates from all parts of the world attended, including Protestants, Cath o li c s, Jews, Freethinkers, Moslems and Negroes. Emphasis upon the rights and destiny of every human being was the keynote of the Congress. The delegates pledged themselves "to continue united and to struggle unto death against racialism and its corollary Fascism until the attacks on the rights of the people are stopped, and on behalf of human independence, liberty and dignity." Among the speakers were Pierre Cot, former French Cabinet memVISITOR LEAVES HOME Miss Florenoe Labov, niece of Mrs. Morris Marks, of 1752 Northwest Fifteenth Street, will leave here Tuesday for her home in Philadelphia after a visit of several months. • • • VISITS IN MIAMI Rabbi and Mrs. Marshall J.
