FRIDAY, AUGU8T 19, 1938 PRICE FIVE CENTO AMERICAN NAZIS G ENERAL COUNCIL JEWISH RIGHTS ESTABLISHED BY NATIONAL BODIES Q||[ RIGHTS BILL Los Angeles, (WNS)—Elimination of all but "Christian American citizens" from positions of command in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and National Guard and in all elective and appointive positions in public office was demanded in one of fifteen resolutions adopted at the three-day western states convention of the so-called Anti-Communist Federation of America, an organization of Nazis, anti-Semites and Fascists. Herman Schwinn, head of the Los Angeles section of the German-American Bund, presided at the convention, which was held in the Deutsches Haus. On the opening of the convention, 3,000 members of the American Legion, labor organizations and representatives of patriotic and civil groups picketed the Deutsche Haus. There were 150 delegates attending the convention. Other resolutions called for an investigation of "un-American activities" of "nominally Christian groups, "including the Y. M. C. A., and the Y. W. C. A.; opposition to "unjuat discrimination" against the Anti-Communist Federation by "enemies of the Constitution;" complete cessation of all immigration until "American citizens can be absorbed in gainful occupations;" a campaign to expose "leaders of the Jewish anti-Defamation League and the Jewish anti-Nazi League" and uncover their 'Communist affiliations;" and an open fight against "international Jewish Communism." URUGUAY WILL OPPOSE NAZIS Montevideo, Uruguay. (WNS*— President Baldomir of Uruguay has addressed a message to Chief Rabbi Aaron Milewsky and the Jewish community declaring that "I value Jewish enterprise in all fields" and that "not only will I prevent anti-Semitic demonstrations, but I will also take a firm stand against Jew-hatred in official government bureaus." At the same time 150 leading Uruguayan government officials, journalists and intellectuals have formed a national committee against racialism and anti-Semitism. NOTED SURGEON DIES SUDDENLY Xew York, (WNS)—Dr. Edwin Beer, for many years chairman of the medical board of Mount Sinai Hospital, died here at the age of 62. A leading authority on urology, he was a past president of the New York Surgical Society. In 1927 he was awarded the first gold medal of the International Society of Urology at Brussels. Five years ago he became treasurer of a physicians* committee organized to aid Jewish doctors who were refugees from Germany. SPAIN SEES RABBI'S COURT S ACCUSED St. Louis, (WNS)—Eberhard von Blankenhagen, secretary of the German consulate in St. Louis, and Herbert Fellman, tutor to the son of Dr. Herbert Diel, the German consul here, are acting as drill masters, the Council for American Democracy charged in a letter to Secretary of State Cordell Hull. The Council asked Mr. Hull whether the permits of the two Nazi officials to enter the United States authorize them to organize camps. "There is considerable j agitation in St. Louis concerning this camp," ((fie Council wupte, "and we have been asked whether the activities described above constitute ground for revocation of those permits. Because the public looks to this Council for authentic information we would greatly appreciate an early reply." The camp, located on the farm of Adolph Funk in Franklin County, Mo., just west of St. Louis, is operated by the German-American Commercial League, and von Blankenhagen has general supervision over it, assisted by Fellman. Frederick Mueller, chancellor of the consulate, said the camp is non-political and that no attempt is being made to educate American-born children as Nazis. Barcelona, (WNS) — Spain's first rabbinical court since the expulsion of the Jews in 1492 was established here this week by the Barcelona Jewish community in response to a request from the rabbinical court in Jerusalem. Dr. Coriat, former president of the Jewish community of Ceuta, Spanish Morocco, was named as president. TUNE IN SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:00 The Jewish FloridUn will again present another in its series of weekly broadcast! this comingSunday morning orer Station WKAT (1600 k. o.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's full of interesting news and comments and music New York, WNS)—A new national Jewish agency intended to bring about unity in American Jewry on all matters affecting the equal rights of Jews here and abroad came into being on August 15th when representatives of the American Jewish Committee, the American Jewish Congress, the B'nai B'rith and the Jewish Labor Committee meeting in all-day session at the Hotel St. Regis under the chairmanship of Edgar J. Kaufman of Pittsburgh, concluded their deliberations with an announcement of the formation of the General Council for Jewish rights to coordinate the activities of these four organizations "that bear specifically on the safeguarding of the equal rights for Jews." Creation of the Council is in accordance with the decision reached at Pittsburgh on June 13th at the first conference of the representatives of the four organizations. Following closely the proposed program outlined in the statement issued after the June 13th meeting, the August 15th meeting adopted a constitution for the new organization governing scope, structure and program. The major points in the Council's constitution are: 1—"The Council shall consider and act upon proposals and plans for the safeguarding of the equal rights of Jews here and abroad; 2—A two-thirds affirmative vote of the total membership of the Council makes its decision 'binding upon the organizations and groups included within its membership; 3—The Council is precluded from making decisions on matters "that involve an encroachment upon the racial, national, religious or economic philosophies of the constituent organizations; 4—For the present, the Council is "to consist of five representatives named for a term of one year by and from each of the constituent organizations; 5—"Admission of additional groups to membership in the Council is to be by "an affirmative vote of not less than five-sixths of the total membership of the Council; 6— "The Council is required to meet at least once every three months, but may be summoned into special session either at the call of the chairman, or at the written request of seven representatives; 7— No more than two regular meetings during any twelve month period may be held in New York City in view of the national character of the Council; 8—Voting on any question is to be by individual ballot with each representative entitled to one vote. The constitution as adopted represented recommendations of a committee of eight named for this purpose by the four organizations. Members of this committee were: Morris D. Waldman and Sidney Wallach for the American Jewish Committee; Louis Lipsky and Carl Sherman for the American Jewish Congress; Louis Fabricant and (Continued on Page Three) ITALIAN KING IS FRIEND OF JEWS Saloniki, (WNS)—King Victor Emanuel of Italy indicated that he was out of sympathy with Italy's new racist policy when he wrote a letter to Samuel Levi, prominent Greek Jewish publicist. Published in the Messagero, the biggest Sephardic daily in the Balkans, the King's letter emphasized that he was always a friend of the Jews and that he has not changed his attitude. The letter was regarded as being particularly significant because it was written after the adoption of the racist and anti-Semitic policy in Italy. The King's letter was in reply to a letter from Levi who had sent the monarch a copy of his (Levi's) new book on the achievements of the Jews in Italy. CHARGES HIRED \\ COMMITTEE Washington, D. C, (WNS)— There is little evidence of Nazi activities on (the Pacific Coast, Edward F. Sullivan, special investigator for the House Committee investigating un-American activities, asserted in a report filed with the committee. He said that while Jewish organizations "are naturally concerned" about the activities of he German-American Bund ana the Silver Shirts, "this concern if not shared by any other agency" or officials with whom h talked. Sullivan declared that "the only evidence presented regarding Nazi activities was the picketing of a Jewish meeting at the Ambassador Hotel (Los Angeles) by members of the German-American Bund and the circulation of a very vicious circular attacking members of the Jewish race. While these practices are unthinkable from the standpoint of true Americanism, the Los Angeles police have pointed out that it is within the constitutional right of these groups to protest or picket and the picketing of the Jewish meeting was a retaliation for the Jewish and Communist groups picketing the German, Japanese and Italian consulates at an earlier date." Sullivan attacked the Hollywood Anti-Nazi League as "an organization which has Communist and radical support arid is well-supplied with funds." Among its supporters, he said, "one will find the supporters of the Communist Party, American Committee for Aid to Spanish Democracy and other Communist and radical causes. It conducts a very lurid campaign over the radio five nights a week and is quite silent regarding Communism, as all so-called anti-Nazi groups are known to be. According to the Communists any Albany, N. Y., (WNS)—Amended to placate the objections of some delegates who felt it was too broad in scope, the anti-discrimination clause of the new State Constitution was unanimously adopted in final form by the New York State Constitutional Convention. It is now to be submitted to a vote of the people of the state. The amendment made the clause applicable only to civil rights, thus weakening the original proposal which would have outlawed racial and religious discrimination not only in civil rights but also in the economic sphere. As finally adopted, the clause reads: "No person shall be denied the equal protection of the laws of this State or any sub-division thereof. No person shall, because of race, color, creed or religion, be subjected to any discrimination in his civil rights by any other person or by any firm, corporation or institution, or by this State or any agency or sub-division of the State." The important change from the original was the insertion of the phrase "civil rights." Judge Harry E. Lewis of Brooklyn, chairman of the bill of rights committee, defined "civil rights" as the "rights" which are found in the Constitution, in the Civil Rights Law and in the statutes." GSTY OFFICIALS MAKE STATEMENT Minneapolis, Minn. (WNS)—Dr. George Drake member of the Minneapolis school board, and George K. Behlen, president of the Associated Industries of Minneapolis, both denounced the Silver Shirts after admitting they had attended meetings of the pro-Nazi and anti-Semitic organization in Minneapolis. Drake called the meeting he attended "Disgusting" and explained he had gone there only out of "curiosity." Belden issued a statement pledging his "support against any movement directed against Jews. I want you to know that I am unalterably opposed to secret associations or un-American groups of any kind that foster and attempt to promote racial or religious hatred." W. T. Grieg, secretary of the Associated Industries, told Rabbi Albert I. Gordon that "our organization is firmly and unalterably opposed to organizations such as the Silver Shirts, secret societies or other organizations of this nature which are founded upon vicious, intolerant and un-American racial, religious or class prejudice." one who is opposed to their policies is at once branded as a Nazi or a Fascist."

WHEN PRIVATE WRONGS BECOME PUBLIC WOES Try as hard as we have, the Jewish people have never been able throughout the ages to get the non-Jewish world to recognize the fact that a wrong committed by the individual Jew should not be charged against the entire Jewish people. Too often have the Jews of entire communities been forced to undergo indignities and even loss of property and .life, because of some act of an individual whom they could not control. In this immediate area, the Jewish community has in most instances been singularly free of irresponsible individuals who have caused trouble to the people as a whole. Yet within the uast several weeks there has been brought home to us in a manner not unmistakable, the conduct of certain individuals who constitute a large part of an important industry in this area, probably the most important industry, which has begun to undermine the business of this area. And again history repeats itself. Again the Jewish people are being told that it is the wrongs of our people, of the Jewish people, not acts committed by an individual or several individuals. We should be the last to attempt to control the business conduct of people. Yet as Jews we must recognise that our standard of conduct must be high; we must bring to Jews the realization that if they have agreed to certain business standards they must live up to their promises; if they find they cannot, then it is their business to so advise those they have agreed with; that subterfuge, chicanery, deception are not Jewish traits. That unless these ills are eliminated they will bring down upon themselves the wrath of the entire community, because in the last analysis the Jewish community will be the suffereri. It is our hope that this word of warning will find receptive ears and that it will not be necessary to mention names and places of those who have been the offenders. Why Be Old-Fashioned and Make Enemies? T HE considerate, careful individual will use the Jewish New Year issue of the Jewish Floridian to extend greetings to his friends everywhere and not use the archaic method of sending greeting cards. Thus you will not overlook a friend and make an enemy T HE Jewish Floridian is the only proper medium to greet your friends. It is with you fiftytWo weeks of the year, a tried and true servant, not a fly-by-night, irresponsible, here now and gone tomorrow, money raising stunt. Phone 2*1141 and we will be Happy to Serve You I WRITE AS I PLEASE We don't approve of Jewish organizations participating in anything that savors of strong arm methods, or questionable procedure to raise funds. These so-called ticket deals, whereby a battery of strong-arm men use telephones to force local non-Jewish business men to purchase tickets for Jewish events, are not in the best of form. Though a few dollars might thus be raised, the resultant harm will far outweigh the possible advantages. Particularly is this true when the men associated with the so-called deal are professionals. We're told that the all-important Budget Committee of the Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds has approached its problems in a manner calculated to bring about the desired results of doing the most for the greatest number. Headed b y "Jimmy" Kopelowitz, we hope the committee will approach the problems of allocation and inclusion not merely in a scientific manner, but in a broad Jewish spirit. Thus it will certainly be proper for the organizations that take too much from this community to get less, if by its getting less some other institution equally as worthy will get some help it has previously been unable to get locally. B'NAI B'RITH NOTES By E. ALBERT PALLOT (Continued from Page Eight) Isn't it great to be in Miami! Yes, even after a vacation spent tripping the light fantastic hitherthither and yon. Somehow, returning from cities where people have become cliff dwellers in towering skyscrapers and where seething masses of hectic, maddening crowds pound the hot pavements of treeless thoroughfares to Miami —where gracious people live and enjoy life makes you want to shout its swell to be back. Particularly, when in the immediate past such swell people as Elry Stone, Lou Shochet, Dr. Frank Coret, Leo Eisenstein, Dave Lemelman, Marx Feinberg, Jack Abbott, Harry Gordon, Sid Segall, Iz Zuckernick, Milt Friedman, Leo Stoller and Dorothy Ann Levin have so graciously given their time, knowledge and wisdom to write this column. I shan't say I appreciate it, because you know that, but I will say that the Jewish people of Miami are deeply appreciative of the benefits of your expression— particularly the members of B'nai B'rith. General Cuncil Rights Established Why cannot our local synagogues get to-gether to make the general public realize that its duty does not end to the synagogue with the purchase of the cheapest possible admissions for the High Holy Days. Would it not be better if all could be made to • realize that membership in any of our local synagogues is something they must not shirk. Is it not time that a "join the synagogue" movement be inaugurated here. Miami, too, has its growing pains. As a result, we have had our full share of racketeers who have not hesitated to use the name of leaders in this community to feather their own nests. The sooner these "birds of prey" were made to realize their lack of decency, and were not simply ignored, the better off we would all be. However, the great law of common sense and economics will take care of these unscrupulous highjackers. Why shouldn't we all belong to B'nai B'rith. Haven't the rays of I the Menorah proven uplifting to Jewish people individually and colI lectively everywhere? Haven't our teaching of the truth about the Jew, of fidelity to the constitution of respect to another's conviction, integrity, reverence and responsibility about us all inspiration and courage? That courage necessary to acquaint the world of our virtues and of our benefits to mankind. We now live in a world where it is imperative that we give definite expression to what we really stand for. That we definitely refute the vile, scurrilous and scandalous messages spread throughout our country. To this end we need strength. A united membership of all Jewish men is necessary for this task and B'nai B'rith is now and will continue to be the champion. If you haven't yet made application for membership why not do so at once. Make it your business to attend all of our meetings. You owe it to yourself and your people. Our goal of 1000 members by January 1, 1938 must and will be reached. The sooner some people realize that the strength of Jewish organizations is derived solely "from the people," that much sooner will that organization become an integral factor in tha community. Public opinion in the great majority of instances has been able to accomplish wonders, because it has been able to disassociate the selfish from the unselfish. There are times when a private wrong becomes a public grievance. JThere ha-te been two Kn^t)ances recently at Miami Beach, neither of which have shed nor are calculated to bring much glory to the Jewish people as a whole. The sooner some people realize that the entire Jewish people have suffered throughout the ages because of unscrupulous individuals, the better off we, and they will be. (Continued from Page One) Leonard V. Finder for the B'nai B'rith; and J. Baskin and I. Minkoff for the Jewish Labor Cimmittee. The Council will meet again on September 19th in New York at which time recommendations for the program of action will be submitted. A sub-committee of four, including one representative from each constituent organization, and headed by B. Charney Vladeck, chairman of the Jewish Labor Committee, was named to make a survey of the activities to be undertaken by the Council and to report to the September 19th meeting. This committee will have before it as a basis for its recommendations a study of the work already engaged in by the four organizations. The committee will also study and make recommendations as to the relations to be established with Jewish communities throughout the United States with a view to securing their cooperation in the Council's program. Members of the subcommittee are Louis Fabricant of the B'nai B'rith, Louis Lipsky of the American Jewish Congress and Sol Stroock of the American Jewish Committee. Permanent officers, comprising a chairman, vice-chairman, treasurer and secretary, will be elected at the September meeting. A special committee has been named to recommend nominations. Following the September session the Council will be ready to embark on a united effort for the defense of the rights of Jews. Present at the August 15th meeting were: for the American Jewish Committee—Sol Stroock, Richard Rothschild and Morris D. Waldman; for the American Jewish Congress—Gedaliah Bublick, Rabbi J. X. Cohen, Louis Segal and Louis Lipsky; for the B'nai B'rith—Henry Monsky, Maurice Bisgyer, Louis Fabricant, Leonard Finder, Sigmund W. Livingston and Benjamin Samuels; for the Jewish Labor Committee—Joseph Baskin, I. H. Goldberg, Louis Hollander, I. Minkoff, I. Nagler and B. C. Vladeck; and also Edgar J. Kaufman, temporary chairman; Authur S. Meyer, Dr. Hugo Breitner and I. D. Wolf. Have you heard that Jack Abbott, our warden has threatened to secure twenty-five new members upon his return from Loon Lake where he is sojourning at the moment. We accept the challenge. Will someone tell our recording secretary that the Congressional race is over and he can now expend his untiring efforts for the benefit of the B'nai B'rith. '. It is very gratifying to .note that Carl Weinkle, of the Miami Beach Weinkles has been a regular attendant at B'nai B'rith meetings. Fine spirit, Carl! Who is this "I Write As I Please" guy? Can he be a member of the B'nai B'rith? Clever fellow, really should be drafted for heavy work assisting us to reach our goal of 1,000 new members. SOCIETY SILVER ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATED In honor of their silver wedding anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Sender Argintar of Asheville, N. C, where Mr. Argintar has been president of the Jewish congregation and prominent in the communal Jewish life, entertained with a dinner dance at the Town Casino Wednesday evening when dancing and moving pictures were featured.

Coupled with ideal weather we had splendid service by our good ladies and a general good time was enjoyed by all. It speaks well for the popularity of our cause and for the friendly spirit prevalent in our community that so many supporters, Bli Ayin Hora from other congregations were present. To our spirited and helpful committee of ladies and men who worked so unselfishly as well as to all friends who helped with their presence we say, Thank you many, many times. BOARD OF DIRECTORS A meeting of the Board of Directors will be had on next Friday evening.

LADIE8 AUXILIARY A great card and bingo party will be held on the night of Sunday, August 28th, on the spacious lawn and in the rooms of the Y. M. H. A., 1567 Southwest Fifth Street.

A. to Mr. Grossman was a most inspiring affair and we hope that it augurs for a most successful tenure of office. %  + THE WORLD'S WINDOW -By LUDWIQ LEWISOHN (The views expressed by Ludwig Lewisohn in his column are his own and do not necessarily reflect the policies or attitude of our publication. Reproduction in whole or in part strictly forbidden.) The lie rules. The lie rules the world. There was this of good to be said of the nineteenth century, that it sought after truth, that it had a faint desire for peace, that it believed in freedom. It was war-like and ashamed of war; it was anti-Semitic and ashamed of being so; Kaiser and King and even Czar paid lip-service to the Judaeo-Christian ethics. Hope was never extinguished. Today they lie. East and West lie. Lies are established as systems and made principles of action. Let us understand: not fallacies merely, to which all men may be prone, but bare-faced, fantastic, cruel lies. Thus the racial theories of the Nazis now of the Italian Fascists are in the precise forms they assume not errors, but gross and wicked lies; thus the principle of leadership and of the authoritarian state as held in Germany and Italy is not merely a passionate fallacy but a lie that flies in the face of both nature and history. The practice of the naked lie is carried over into the realm of concrete politics. The whole non-intervention agreement in Spain is one single brutal lie. It is not even diplomatic suppression of truth and suggestion of falseness. It is beyond any subterfuge. Chamberlain knows, as the whole world knows, that Italy and Germany are waging war in Spain and that the Italian and German troops in Spain are not volunteers but conscripts. He also knows that every foreigner fighting with the Loyalist forces is a volunteer who is prepared to die for a cause. There is, in other words, no common denominator, moral or practical, between the Italian conscripts in Spain and the foreign legion serving the republic. The non-intervention agreement unblushingly puts them on a par, speaks of proportionate withdrawal, and all the politicians and all the newspapers subscribe to this foul and pernicious lie. There is an analogous lie that touches us, the Jewish people, more nearly and closely. Open your paper, any paper, in the morning and on many mornings newsdays you will find something about the Arab-Jewish conflict in Palestine. This lie, that there is an ArabJewish conflict, corrodes and corrupts the public mind; it corrode? and corrupts even the minds of certain Jews. There is even less likeness between Jew and Arab in Palestine than there is between French or American volunteer in the republican armies and Italian or German conscript in Spain. It is a poisonous lie that equates these groups and forces. There is no such thing as an Arab-Jewish conflict. There are no troubles between Jew and Arab in Palestine. Unless there is a conflict between a gangster and his victims; unless there was a conflict between some early group of American settlers and the warlike Indians who set upon them and burned their huts and crops and scalped their wives and children. Unless there is a conflict between peaceful citizens engaged upon great and beneficent tasks and the assassins and thieves who fall upon them. The non-intervention pact in Spain is a lie. All that is officially uttered in regard to Palestine is a lie. When the High Commissioner the other day called upon all parts of the population to keep the peace he was lying—crudely and brutally lying, even granting that a few misguided Revisionists, with the disapproval of the whole of Jewry, have recently returned feebly a few blows. Had Sir Harry MacMichael desired to speak the truth he would have called upon the Arabs to cease from murder, theft and sabotage and assured them that the British Empire could never countenance murder, theft and sabotage as political methods. Instead he lied by feigning that there was a conflict be-' THE UNIONS "TRAILER BOYS" HOMEWARD BOUND Still seem comfortable in their car and trailer home. Sponsored by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations as the "Jewish Religious Caravan of "1938," these five upperclassmen of the Hebrew Union College have left a trail of accomplishment and Jewish enthusiasm behind them, according to the testimony afforded by letters received at the Executive Offices of the parent body of American Liberal Judaism in Cincinnati. Left to right, they are Joseph Narot of Cleveland, Melvin Sands of Detroit and Paul Oorin of Chicago, who have "de luxe" sleeping quarters in the trailer itself; and Milton Rosenbaum of New York City with Sylvan Schwartzman of Baltimore, the two tallest members of the quintet (both well over six feet) who make their bed inside the car. This is done by means of an ingenious arrangement which permits the back of the front seat to be lowered and converts a sedan into a bedroom. The caravaneers have co vered more than eight thousand miles through small Jewish communities between Cincinnati and the Pacific Coast. 0RAYN00 "OUR LIGHT" BY DORIS SIDNEY HELLER. EDITOR CONGREGATION OHEV SHALOM EOLA DRIVE ORLANDO, FLA. RABBI MORRIS A. SKOP 1012 HARWELL STREET ORLANDO, FLA. SUMMER SERVICES Orthodox services are held throughout the summer at sundown Friday and every Shabbos morning at 7:00 o'clock. SUMMER HEBREW SCHOOL AND CHOIR Chedar boys who have remained in Orlando during the summer have been meeting daily every weekday morning and continuing their Hebrew studies in Bible, Hebrew grammar and Hebrew stories. Following the classes the Hebrew School choir meets to rehearse their melodies for the High Holy "Pays. TISHA B'AB APPEAL In response to the appeal by the Jewish Morning Journal of New York to aid in Palestine emergency Rabbi Skop and Cantor Leshinsky raised twenty dollars at the Orthodox services on Tisha Bab for the noble cause. SYNAGOGUE RENOVATION The Jewish community will return to services this Rosh Hastween two parties or factions standing on some conceivable common ground. Thus they lie about Spain; thus they lie about Palestine. The whole issue is worth raising in this place because weakminded Jews are taken in. They are not taken in by the lie about Soain. But they are taken in by the lie about Palestine, because they have a bad conscience about Palestine, about not doing enough or sacrificing enough for their people or for Palestine. So they subscribe to the official lie concerning a "conflict" between Arab and Jew. There is no conflict between Nazi and Jew—that they will grant—nor between Fascist and Jew nor Arab and Jew. There are gangsters and murderers attacking the Jewish people in the world and in the homeland. eLt us at least, at least, as Jews, not subscribe to the lies of the gangsters and the murderers and their political defenders. honah in an almost new synagogue. The building and Holy Ark and social hall have been completely painted and redecorated. New cupboards have been installed for dairy dishes in kitchen and new furnishings have been installed throughout including beautiful bookcases for the Rabbi's study. A stationary wedding canopy has also been installed. KIDDUSH FOR SHIRAH RANAH SKOP In honor of the arrival home of Mrs. Rachel Skop and the newborn daughter of Rabbi and Mrs. Skop, the happy parents made a kiddush at their home and in the synagogue at the name presentation which was attended by the entire community. Shirah Ranah is acknowledging through her proud parents all of the hundred* of messages, gifts and beautiful letters. SICK LIST DECREASES With thankful hearts the Jewish community is praying for the complete recovery of its unusually large sick list of this summer. Still in the hospital are Mrs. I. Tetenbaum and Mr. Morris Wittenstein. At home still ill is Mrs. I. Friedman; convalescing are Mrs. Reuben Steifel, Mrs. Small and Mrs. L. Fox. We hope for all a quick recovery and refuah shelemoh. HEARTFELT MAZEL TOV TO NEWLYWEDS One of the most brilliant and beautifully impressive weddings yet held in the Jewish community was that of Miss Ruth Esther Rosen, only daughter of Mrs. Jesse Rosen to Mr. Joseph Wittenstein. The ceremony took place in the synagogue which was banked with gorgeous flowers and floral canopy. The wedding procession of ushers, bridesmaids, flower girls and relatives began promptly at 3:00 p. m., with Rabbi Morris A. Skop officiating. Miss Rosen, popular school teacher and member of the Synagogue Religious School Faculty, included in her wedding party some of Orlando's outstanding young people including Miss Florence Wittenstein, maid of honor. Miss Elaine Klepper, Tybell Wittenstein, Mrs. Morris Gordon, Mrs. Jack Wolfson, Ralph Meitin of Albany, N. Y., best man, George Wolly, Sidney Baker, William Lieberman and Mr. Martin Segal. Musical selections were rendered by Mrs. Belle Hoffman, Morris Gordon and Al Prince. The flower girls and ring bearer included Tiny Macine Arstein, Marian Bear and Ronald Shader. Mr. Joseph Wittenstein, the groom, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Morris Wittenstein, active synagogue workers. Following a wedding trip the couple will be at home to their friends at 439 Catlicart Street. Mr. Wittenstein will continue his connections with the College Park Dairy. The entire community wishes for them a most happy life together. B'NAI B'RITH STATE CONVENTION At the last meeting of local Lodge No. 1043 which was unusually well attended delegates were elected to the forthcoming Labor Day Week-end State B'nai B'nth Conclave to take place in Wet.t Palm Beach, Florida.

CONGREGATIONAL NEWS Wc ask all members and friends to put aside all differences and grudges and support whole-heartedly the present administration in all its undertakings. We have great work for the coming year to enhance Jewish life in our midst and rehabilitate our men and women as true, loyal cohorts of an historic cultural entity. If we, adults, set the example, it will be a simple matter to guide and steer our boys and girls along Jewish endeavors. Remember:—We work for God's name and not for our Individual Name! HIGH HOLIDAY NEWS Rosh Hashonah will be ushered in the evening of September 25th. We ask our members and friends, far in advance, to select their seats early; so that you will be satisfied with your choice. Contact Mendel Scheinberg, chairman of the High Holiday seating arrangements committee. Once again, the Junior Congregation will hold its High Holiday services separately in the auditorium with its own Rabbi and Cantor officiating. This will make the fourth consecutive year of independent services; the only Junior services of its kind in the South. Please encourage your children to attend. RADIO PROGRAM Rabbi Max Shapiro will be in charge of the radio program over WIOD this Sunday from 3:30 to 4:00 p. m. Cantor Louis Hayman accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Essie Shaeffer will sing appropriate numbers. Rabbi Shapiro will speak on the subject: "The Great Democracy— America Speaks in Terms of Ethies." RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION We are delighted at the response of sincere young men and women who desire to become members of our Sunday School faculty. The announcement, last week, in the Jewish Floridian relative to the importance of self-dedication to the ideals and history of our people by teaching our youth has brought many letters from young people. Our curriculum is being prepared and a detailed description will be printed in the near future concerning the Sunday School and Talmud Torah. CONGREGATIONAL MEETING A series of congregational dinners and meetings will be part of the program of the new administration, so as to stimulate proper interest in the welfare of our institution. We trust that our members will become in "good standing" and participate in these affairs. Calendar dates will be announced shortly. "BROCHA VI HATZLOCHA" We extend our greetings to the newly elected Executive Director of the Y. M. H. A., and commend the Board of Directors in selecting such a type of man. May the Almighty grant him "Hatzlocha" and give "Sichliyos" to the lead ers of the Y. M. H. A. to co-operate with him in all his endeavors. LONDON TIMES IS PRO-JEWISH London, (WNS, Palcor Agency) —In its leading editorial commenting upon the recent radio broadcasts of High Commissioner MacMichael and Colonial Secretary MacDonald, the London Times declared that in view of the fact that the Arabs have occupied Palestine and Syria for many centuries without contributing substantially to the development of these countries, they "must allow the Jews to rebuild the national home that was theirs two thousand years ago and give the Jews a chance to try to rejuvenate the Levant through Zionism." The Times editorial observes that the radio addresses by the High Commissioner and the Colonial Secretary left no doubt that fundamental British policy on par' tition has "not been and will not be deflected by terrorism." Both i admitted, the Times says, that its | final form cannot be established until the Technical Commission on Partition has finished its work which may not be completed for weeks or even months. AssertinR that recent events in Palestine have vindicated the late Lord Peel's recommendation that the races be separated, the Times points out that the present Commission is empowered to suggest modification? in the partition plan but not its abandonment. Continuing the Times states that the Government is determined to base its action on a just consideration of the rival and often incompatible claims of the two peoples. REV.

A first lieutenant in the Austrian infantry, Stiassny served four years at the front during the World War, being wounded once and winning six decorations for bravery under fire. When the Nazis invaded Austria he was vice commander-in-chief of the Austrian Jewish War Veterans, the first Jewish organization to be suppressed. Stiassny, Captain Edler con Friedmann, the president, and General Sommer, a former President, were all arrested. The latter two are now in a concentration camp but Stiassny was released after several weeks. He was enabled to come to this country through the aid of the Jewish War Veterans of the U. S. Mr. Stiassny is also general secretary of the World Congress of Jewish Ex-Servicemen, which was founded in Vienna in 1935 and maintained its headquarters there until March, 1938.

A truck was furnished by Mr. Nathan Adelman. • • • TO LEAVE FOR VACATION Col. Sidney H. Palmer will leave Sunday for a vacation in North Carolina and will return to Miami in about two weeks. • • • SPINOZA GROUP HEARS LECTURE "The Arab attacks are as cruel as they are unjustified," Dr. Wolfson told the Spinoza Group last Saturday afternoon. The Jews have brought to the Arabs important benefits in sanitation and health. They have introduced preventive medicine and are stamping out trachoma and malaria. Many of the Jewish hospitals and clini.f are available to the Arabs. If left alone the Jews would get along well with the Arabs. They are sharing with the Arabs the fruits of their labor and industry: the University, the schools, the hospitals, the social welfare centers, the increased wealth production and the increased standard of living. The trouble in Palestine comes from the top. The feudal land owners as they see their peasantry liberated by Jewish -influences, and passing out of their control. The English imperialists who gee a rapidly increasing Jewish popu. lation that refuses to be treated as natives and inferiors. These are our enemies in Palestine. Not the Arab people, but the reactionary feudal lords and the conservative English officials. When the Arabs will cease following blindly their present leaders, Jew and Arab will live together in harmony and peace. Professor Mark Waldman of the City College of New York eriticized the Jewish activities in Palestine, especially the Histadruth— the Jewish Labor Organization— for excluding Arabs from their unions. Miss Sarah Leightman, Hebrew teacher of New Bedford, Conn., spoke of her experience in the Holy Land. Miss Leightman spent two and a half years in Palestine. Next Saturday afternoon the Group will meet again on the lawn at 1059 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach at 3:00 p. m. Dr. Wolfson will give his sixth talk on Palestine, referring briefly to Dr. Leon Rinsker's famous book: Auto Emancipation. Miss Sarah Leightman will tell some more of her interesting experience in the Holy Land. All are welcome to attend. JACKSONVILLE Notes Mr. and Mrs. John E. Hyma announce the birth of a <\aughter.

In a beautifully decorated setting, one of the most gala affairs ever staged in Miami was held last night at the Royal Palm Club under the auspices of the Freda Markowitz Post No. 174 of Jewish War Veterans of Greater Miami. Over one thousand persons attended the dance and entertainment and everyone in "Who's Who" of Miami was present. The dance was given for the purpose of raising funds to defray the expenses of the Miami delegation, which will leave Sunday for Detroit to endeavor to bring the National Convention of Jewish War Veterans to Miami in 1939. The delegates who will leave on August 28th for the National Convention in Detroit, Mich., to be held from September 1 to 5 include Commander H. H. Farr, W. D. Bergman, Harry Markowitz, R. R.

At each meeting the comrr.'ttee proposes to invite another .-if the members of the Lodge to listen in and see how an active, serious minded committee really works. At the last mect.ui; Pr. Jnccb H. Kaplan was a guest of the committee and wa hope he enjoyed being there. There's a real problem facing the Lodge for the comin-r season. It must find members who are willing to carry the burden of keeping the State Federation really alive and working. Unfortunately since the last Stale Convention in Tampa, nothire what ever has been accomplished by the State organization, though the time was opportune and the field ripe for real constructive work Spt-Pches, parliamentary ability and the like will do but little for the Lodge in this State. It is work that must be had. The above is a group picture of the members of Tau Epsilon Phi's Chapter at North Carolina University, where a unique relationship has been developed between the Jewish fraternity and B'nai B'rith's Hillel Foundation. ST. PETERSBURG Mrs. Jean Miller, who has spent the summer at Bradley Beach, N. J., has just returned to her home. i Miss Hazel Abrams and Miss Esther Moed are visiting in Miami Beach. They were joined by Miss Irene Jacobs, who spent last week in West Palm Beach as the guest of Mrs. H. Greenblatt. of her sister, Miss Ruth Engelman to Jack Wallace, formerly of this city. The wedding will take place in the Fall. The Lodge will be entitled to about twenty-two delegates and we know there will be a scrir.ible for the positions, not because of the opportunity afforded for work lut because of the good time wo know well have in West Palm Beach. Though all will be welcome to the State Convention next September fourth and fifth, it is only fair that those imbued with u desire to serve be chosen. Unfortunately, only too often we find ptople seeking honors and good times who want to be delegir?s. Certainly those who have shown a desire to serve are entitled to represent the Lodge. Doc Werblow had better be getting on the job, with school opening early next month. We feel he has the ability and will accomplish much if he only tries hard enough. A start was made J"8t year, much must be done this coming year. Mr. and Mrs. Ben Wolfson and daughter, Judy, of Fort Myers, are here spending their vacation at Treasure Island. Mrs. Al Weiss of Tampa, and Mrs. Ben Schwartz of this city will be their guests during their stay here. Mr. Ben Blumberg of Orlando, was the week-end guest of the Shower Club. Mrs. Lillian Grossman has recently announced the engagement at a recent picnic of the boys. But according to the stories we hear, "Doc" needed a chaperone himself. However, let's attribute it to "enthusiasm."

Los Angeles, (WNS)Elimina-
tion of all but "Christian Ameri-
can citizens" from positions of
command in the Army, Navy, Ma-
rine Corps and National Guard
and in all elective and appointive
positions in public office was de-
manded in one of fifteen resolu-
tions adopted at the three-day
western states convention of the
so-called Anti-Communist Federa-
tion of America, an organization
of Nazis, anti-Semites and Fas-
cists. Herman Schwinn, head of
the Los Angeles section of the
German-American Bund, presided
at the convention, which was held
in the Deutsches Haus. On the
opening of the convention, 3,000
members of the American Legion,
labor organizations and represen-
tatives of patriotic and civil
groups picketed the Deutsche
Haus. There were 150 delegates
attending the convention.
Other resolutions called for an
investigation of "un-American ac-
tivities" of "nominally Christian
groups, "including the Y. M. C.
A., and the Y. W. C. A.; opposi-
tion to "unjuat discrimination"
against the Anti-Communist Fed-
eration by "enemies of the Con-
stitution;" complete cessation of
all immigration until "American
citizens can be absorbed in gain-
ful occupations;" a campaign to
expose "leaders of the Jewish an-
ti-Defamation League and the
Jewish anti-Nazi League" and un-
cover their 'Communist affilia-
tions;" and an open fight against
"international Jewish Commun-
ism."

President Baldomir of Uruguay
has addressed a message to Chief
Rabbi Aaron Milewsky and the
Jewish community declaring that
"I value Jewish enterprise in all
fields" and that "not only will I
prevent anti-Semitic demonstra-
tions, but I will also take a firm
stand against Jew-hatred in offi-
cial government bureaus."
At the same time 150 leading
Uruguayan government officials,
journalists and intellectuals have
formed a national committee
against racialism and anti-Semit-
ism.

St. Louis, (WNS)Eberhard
von Blankenhagen, secretary of
the German consulate in St. Louis,
and Herbert Fellman, tutor to the
son of Dr. Herbert Diel, the Ger-
man consul here, are acting as
drill masters, the Council for
American Democracy charged in
a letter to Secretary of State Cor-
dell Hull.
The Council asked Mr. Hull
whether the permits of the two
Nazi officials to enter the United
States authorize them to organize
camps. "There is considerable j
agitation in St. Louis concerning
this camp," ((fie Council wupte,
"and we have been asked whether
the activities described above con-
stitute ground for revocation of
those permits. Because the pub-
lic looks to this Council for au-
thentic information we would
greatly appreciate an early reply."
The camp, located on the farm
of Adolph Funk in Franklin Coun-
ty, Mo., just west of St. Louis,
is operated by the German-Ameri-
can Commercial League, and von
Blankenhagen has general super-
vision over it, assisted by Fell-
man. Frederick Mueller, chancel-
lor of the consulate, said the camp
is non-political and that no at-
tempt is being made to educate
American-born children as Nazis.

New York, WNS)A new nat-
ional Jewish agency intended to
bring about unity in American
Jewry on all matters affecting the
equal rights of Jews here and
abroad came into being on August
15th when representatives of the
American Jewish Committee, the
American Jewish Congress, the
B'nai B'rith and the Jewish Labor
Committee meeting in all-day ses-
sion at the Hotel St. Regis under
the chairmanship of Edgar J.
Kaufman of Pittsburgh, concluded
their deliberations with an an-
nouncement of the formation of
the General Council for Jewish
rights to coordinate the activities
of these four organizations "that
bear specifically on the safeguard-
ing of the equal rights for Jews."
Creation of the Council is in ac-
cordance with the decision reach-
ed at Pittsburgh on June 13th at
the first conference of the repre-
sentatives of the four organiza-
tions.
Following closely the proposed
program outlined in the statement
issued after the June 13th meet-
ing, the August 15th meeting
adopted a constitution for the new
organization governing scope,
structure and program. The ma-
jor points in the Council's consti-
tution are: 1"The Council shall
consider and act upon proposals
and plans for the safeguarding of
the equal rights of Jews here and
abroad; 2A two-thirds affirma-
tive vote of the total membership
of the Council makes its decision
'binding upon the organizations
and groups included within its
membership; 3The Council is
precluded from making decisions
on matters "that involve an en-
croachment upon the racial, nat-
ional, religious or economic phil-
osophies of the constituent organi-
zations; 4For the present, the
Council is "to consist of five rep-
resentatives named for a term of
one year by and from each of the
constituent organizations; 5"Ad-
mission of additional groups to
membership in the Council is to
be by "an affirmative vote of not
less than five-sixths of the total
membership of the Council; 6
"The Council is required to meet
at least once every three months,
but may be summoned into special
session either at the call of the
chairman, or at the written re-
quest of seven representatives; 7
No more than two regular meet-
ings during any twelve month
period may be held in New York
City in view of the national char-
acter of the Council; 8Voting
on any question is to be by indivi-
dual ballot with each representa-
tive entitled to one vote.
The constitution as adopted rep-
resented recommendations of a
committee of eight named for this
purpose by the four organizations.
Members of this committee were:
Morris D. Waldman and Sidney
Wallach for the American Jewish
Committee; Louis Lipsky and Carl
Sherman for the American Jewish
Congress; Louis Fabricant and

ITALIAN KING IS
FRIEND OF JEWS
Saloniki, (WNS)King Victor
Emanuel of Italy indicated that he
was out of sympathy with Italy's
new racist policy when he wrote
a letter to Samuel Levi, promi-
nent Greek Jewish publicist.
Published in the Messagero, the
biggest Sephardic daily in the
Balkans, the King's letter empha-
sized that he was always a friend
of the Jews and that he has not
changed his attitude. The letter
was regarded as being particularly
significant because it was written
after the adoption of the racist
and anti-Semitic policy in Italy.
The King's letter was in reply
to a letter from Levi who had
sent the monarch a copy of his
(Levi's) new book on the achieve-
ments of the Jews in Italy.
CHARGES HIRED
\\ COMMITTEE
Washington, D. C, (WNS)
There is little evidence of Nazi
activities on (the Pacific Coast,
Edward F. Sullivan, special inves-
tigator for the House Committee
investigating un-American activi-
ties, asserted in a report filed
with the committee.
He said that while Jewish or-
ganizations "are naturally con-
cerned" about the activities of
he German-American Bund ana
the Silver Shirts, "this concern if
not shared by any other agency"
or officials with whom h talked.
Sullivan declared that "the only
evidence presented regarding Nazi
activities was the picketing of a
Jewish meeting at the Ambassador
Hotel (Los Angeles) by members
of the German-American Bund
and the circulation of a very vic-
ious circular attacking members of
the Jewish race. While these prac-
tices are unthinkable from the
standpoint of true Americanism,
the Los Angeles police have point-
ed out that it is within the con-
stitutional right of these groups
to protest or picket and the pick-
eting of the Jewish meeting was
a retaliation for the Jewish and
Communist groups picketing the
German, Japanese and Italian con-
sulates at an earlier date."
Sullivan attacked the Holly-
wood Anti-Nazi League as "an
organization which has Commun-
ist and radical support arid is
well-supplied with funds." Among
its supporters, he said, "one will
find the supporters of the Com-
munist Party, American Commit-
tee for Aid to Spanish Democracy
and other Communist and radical
causes.
It conducts a very lurid cam-
paign over the radio five nights
a week and is quite silent regard-
ing Communism, as all so-called
anti-Nazi groups are known to be.
According to the Communists any
Albany, N. Y., (WNS)Amend-
ed to placate the objections of
some delegates who felt it was
too broad in scope, the anti-dis-
crimination clause of the new
State Constitution was unani-
mously adopted in final form by
the New York State Constitution-
al Convention.
It is now to be submitted to a
vote of the people of the state.
The amendment made the clause
applicable only to civil rights,
thus weakening the original pro-
posal which would have outlawed
racial and religious discrimination
not only in civil rights but also
in the economic sphere.
As finally adopted, the clause
reads: "No person shall be denied
the equal protection of the laws
of this State or any sub-division
thereof. No person shall, because
of race, color, creed or religion,
be subjected to any discrimination
in his civil rights by any other
person or by any firm, corpora-
tion or institution, or by this State
or any agency or sub-division of
the State."
The important change from the
original was the insertion of the
phrase "civil rights." Judge Har-
ry E. Lewis of Brooklyn, chair-
man of the bill of rights commit-
tee, defined "civil rights" as the
"rights" which are found in the
Constitution, in the Civil Rights
Law and in the statutes."
GSTY OFFICIALS
MAKE STATEMENT
Minneapolis, Minn. (WNS)Dr.
George Drake member of the Min-
neapolis school board, and George
K. Behlen, president of the Asso-
ciated Industries of Minneapolis,
both denounced the Silver Shirts
after admitting they had attended
meetings of the pro-Nazi and an-
ti-Semitic organization in Minne-
apolis.
Drake called the meeting he at-
tended "Disgusting" and explain-
ed he had gone there only out of
"curiosity." Belden issued a state-
ment pledging his "support against
any movement directed against
Jews. I want you to know that
I am unalterably opposed to secret
associations or un-American groups
of any kind that foster and at-
tempt to promote racial or reli-
gious hatred."
W. T. Grieg, secretary of the
Associated Industries, told Rabbi
Albert I. Gordon that "our organ-
ization is firmly and unalterably
opposed to organizations such as
the Silver Shirts, secret societies
or other organizations of this na-
ture which are founded upon vi-
cious, intolerant and un-American
racial, religious or class preju-
dice."
one who is opposed to their poli-
cies is at once branded as a Nazi
or a Fascist."

VOLUME 11.NUMBER 32.
WHEN PRIVATE WRONGS BECOME
PUBLIC WOES
Try as hard as we have, the Jewish people have never been
able throughout the ages to get the non-Jewish world to recog-
nize the fact that a wrong committed by the individual Jew
should not be charged against the entire Jewish people. Too
often have the Jews of entire communities been forced to un-
dergo indignities and even loss of property and .life, because of
some act of an individual whom they could not control.
In this immediate area, the Jewish community has in most
instances been singularly free of irresponsible individuals who
have caused trouble to the people as a whole. Yet within the
uast several weeks there has been brought home to us in a man-
ner not unmistakable, the conduct of certain individuals who
constitute a large part of an important industry in this area,
probably the most important industry, which has begun to un-
dermine the business of this area. And again history repeats
itself. Again the Jewish people are being told that it is the
wrongs of our people, of the Jewish people, not acts committed
by an individual or several individuals.
We should be the last to attempt to control the business
conduct of people. Yet as Jews we must recognise that our
standard of conduct must be high; we must bring to Jews the
realization that if they have agreed to certain business standards
they must live up to their promises; if they find they cannot,
then it is their business to so advise those they have agreed
with; that subterfuge, chicanery, deception are not Jewish
traits. That unless these ills are eliminated they will bring
down upon themselves the wrath of the entire community, be-
cause in the last analysis the Jewish community will be the
suffereri.
It is our hope that this word of warning will find receptive
ears and that it will not be necessary to mention names and
places of those who have been the offenders.
Why Be Old-Fashioned
and Make Enemies?
THE considerate, careful indivi-
dual will use the Jewish
New Year issue of the Jewish
Floridian to extend greetings to
his friends everywhere and not
use the archaic method of sending
greeting cards. Thus you will not
overlook a friend and make an
enemy..... ,
THE Jewish Floridian is the
only proper medium to greet
your friends. It is with you fifty-
tWo weeks of the year, a tried and
true servant, not a fly-by-night,
irresponsible, here now and gone
tomorrow, money raising stunt. .
Phone 2*1141 and we will be
Happy to Serve You
I WRITE AS I
PLEASE
We don't approve of Jewish or-
ganizations participating in any-
thing that savors of strong arm
methods, or questionable proce-
dure to raise funds. These so-cal-
led ticket deals, whereby a battery
of strong-arm men use telephones
to force local non-Jewish business
men to purchase tickets for Jewish
events, are not in the best of
form. Though a few dollars might
thus be raised, the resultant harm
will far outweigh the possible ad-
vantages. Particularly is this true
when the men associated with the
so-called deal are professionals.
We're told that the all-import-
ant Budget Committee of the
Greater Miami Federation of Jew-
ish Welfare Funds has approach-
ed its problems in a manner cal-
culated to bring about the desired
results of doing the most for the
greatest number. Headed b y
"Jimmy" Kopelowitz, we hope the
committee will approach the prob-
lems of allocation and inclusion
not merely in a scientific manner,
but in a broad Jewish spirit. Thus
it will certainly be proper for the
organizations that take too much
from this community to get less,
if by its getting less some other
institution equally as worthy will
get some help it has previously
been unable to get locally.
B'NAI B'RITH
NOTES
By E. ALBERT PALLOT
(Continued from Page Eight)
Isn't it great to be in Miami!
Yes, even after a vacation spent
tripping the light fantastic hither-
thither and yon. Somehow, re-
turning from cities where people
have become cliff dwellers in tow-
ering skyscrapers and where seeth-
ing masses of hectic, maddening
crowds pound the hot pavements
of treeless thoroughfares to Miami
where gracious people live and
enjoy life makes you want to shout
its swell to be back. Particularly,
when in the immediate past such
swell people as Elry Stone, Lou
Shochet, Dr. Frank Coret, Leo Ei-
senstein, Dave Lemelman, Marx
Feinberg, Jack Abbott, Harry Gor-
don, Sid Segall, Iz Zuckernick,
Milt Friedman, Leo Stoller and
Dorothy Ann Levin have so grac-
iously given their time, know-
ledge and wisdom to write this
column. I shan't say I appreciate
it, because you know that, but I
will say that the Jewish people of
Miami are deeply appreciative of
the benefits of your expression
particularly the members of B'nai
B'rith.
General Cuncil
Rights Established
Why cannot our local synagog-
ues get to-gether to make the gen-
eral public realize that its duty
does not end to the synagogue
with the purchase of the cheapest
possible admissions for the High
Holy Days. Would it not be better
if all could be made to realize
that membership in any of our
local synagogues is something
they must not shirk. Is it not
time that a "join the synagogue"
movement be inaugurated here.
Miami, too, has its growing
pains. As a result, we have had
our full share of racketeers who
have not hesitated to use the name
of leaders in this community to
feather their own nests. The soon-
er these "birds of prey" were
made to realize their lack of de-
cency, and were not simply ignor-
ed, the better off we would all be.
However, the great law of com-
mon sense and economics will take
care of these unscrupulous high-
jackers.
Why shouldn't we all belong to
B'nai B'rith. Haven't the rays of
I the Menorah proven uplifting to
Jewish people individually and col-
I lectively everywhere? Haven't our
teaching of the truth about the
Jew, of fidelity to the constitution
of respect to another's conviction,
integrity, reverence and responsi-
bility about us all inspiration and
courage? That courage necessary
to acquaint the world of our vir-
tues and of our benefits to man-
kind. We now live in a world
where it is imperative that we give
definite expression to what we
really stand for. That we defi-
nitely refute the vile, scurrilous
and scandalous messages spread
throughout our country. To this
end we need strength. A united
membership of all Jewish men is
necessary for this task and B'nai
B'rith is now and will continue to
be the champion. If you haven't
yet made application for member-
ship why not do so at once. Make
it your business to attend all of
our meetings. You owe it to your-
self and your people. Our goal
of 1000 members by January 1,
1938 must and will be reached.
The sooner some people realize
that the strength of Jewish organ-
izations is derived solely "from
the people," that much sooner will
that organization become an inte-
gral factor in tha community.
Public opinion in the great major-
ity of instances has been able to
accomplish wonders, because it
has been able to disassociate the
selfish from the unselfish.
There are times when a private
wrong becomes a public grievance.
JThere ha-te been two Kn^t)ances
recently at Miami Beach, neither
of which have shed nor are calcu-
lated to bring much glory to the
Jewish people as a whole. The
sooner some people realize that the
entire Jewish people have suffer-
ed throughout the ages because
of unscrupulous individuals, the
better off we, and they will be.

The Council will meet again on
September 19th in New York at
which time recommendations for
the program of action will be sub-
mitted. A sub-committee of four,
including one representative from
each constituent organization, and
headed by B. Charney Vladeck,
chairman of the Jewish Labor
Committee, was named to make
a survey of the activities to be
undertaken by the Council and to
report to the September 19th
meeting. This committee will
have before it as a basis for its
recommendations a study of the
work already engaged in by the
four organizations. The commit-
tee will also study and make rec-
ommendations as to the relations
to be established with Jewish com-
munities throughout the United
States with a view to securing
their cooperation in the Council's
program. Members of the sub-
committee are Louis Fabricant of
the B'nai B'rith, Louis Lipsky
of the American Jewish Congress
and Sol Stroock of the American
Jewish Committee.
Permanent officers, comprising
a chairman, vice-chairman, treas-
urer and secretary, will be elected
at the September meeting. A
special committee has been named
to recommend nominations.
Following the September session
the Council will be ready to em-
bark on a united effort for the
defense of the rights of Jews.
Present at the August 15th meet-
ing were: for the American Jew-
ish CommitteeSol Stroock, Rich-
ard Rothschild and Morris D.

Have you heard that Jack Ab-
bott, our warden has threatened
to secure twenty-five new mem-
bers upon his return from Loon
Lake where he is sojourning at
the moment. We accept the chal-
lenge.
Will someone tell our recording
secretary that the Congressional
race is over and he can now expend
his untiring efforts for the benefit
of the B'nai B'rith.

It is very gratifying to .note
that Carl Weinkle, of the Miami
Beach Weinkles has been a regular
attendant at B'nai B'rith meetings.
Fine spirit, Carl!
Who is this "I Write As I
Please" guy? Can he be a mem-
ber of the B'nai B'rith? Clever
fellow, really should be drafted for
heavy work assisting us to reach
our goal of 1,000 new members.

Our picnic was a great moral

THE WORLD'S WINDOW
-By LUDWIQ LEWISOHN
(The views expressed by Lud-
wig Lewisohn in his column are
his own and do not necessarily
reflect the policies or attitude of
our publication. Reproduction
in whole or in part strictly for-
bidden.)
The lie rules. The lie rules the
world. There was this of good to
be said of the nineteenth century,
that it sought after truth, that it
had a faint desire for peace, that
it believed in freedom. It was
war-like and ashamed of war; it
was anti-Semitic and ashamed of
being so; Kaiser and King and
even Czar paid lip-service to the
Judaeo-Christian ethics. Hope was
never extinguished.
Today they lie. East and West
lie. Lies are established as sys-
tems and made principles of ac-
tion. Let us understand: not fal-
lacies merely, to which all men
may be prone, but bare-faced, fan-
tastic, cruel lies. Thus the racial
theories of the Nazis now of the
Italian Fascists are in the precise
forms they assume not errors, but
gross and wicked lies; thus the
principle of leadership and of the
authoritarian state as held in Ger-
many and Italy is not merely a
passionate fallacy but a lie that
flies in the face of both nature
and history.
The practice of the naked lie is
carried over into the realm of con-
crete politics. The whole non-in-
tervention agreement in Spain is
one single brutal lie. It is not
even diplomatic suppression of
truth and suggestion of falseness.
It is beyond any subterfuge. Cham-
berlain knows, as the whole world
knows, that Italy and Germany
are waging war in Spain and that
the Italian and German troops in
Spain are not volunteers but con-
scripts. He also knows that every
foreigner fighting with the Loy-
alist forces is a volunteer who is
prepared to die for a cause. There
is, in other words, no common de-
nominator, moral or practical, be-
tween the Italian conscripts in
Spain and the foreign legion serv-
ing the republic. The non-inter-
vention agreement unblushingly
puts them on a par, speaks of
proportionate withdrawal, and all
the politicians and all the news-
papers subscribe to this foul and
pernicious lie.
There is an analogous lie that
touches us, the Jewish people,
more nearly and closely. Open your
paper, any paper, in the morning
and on many mornings newsdays
you will find something about the
Arab-Jewish conflict in Palestine.
This lie, that there is an Arab-
Jewish conflict, corrodes and cor-
rupts the public mind; it corrode?
and corrupts even the minds of
certain Jews. There is even less
likeness between Jew and Arab in
Palestine than there is between
French or American volunteer in
the republican armies and Italian
or German conscript in Spain. It
is a poisonous lie that equates
these groups and forces.
There is no such thing as an
Arab-Jewish conflict. There are
no troubles between Jew and Arab
in Palestine. Unless there is a
conflict between a gangster and
his victims; unless there was a
conflict between some early group
of American settlers and the war-
like Indians who set upon them
and burned their huts and crops
and scalped their wives and chil-
dren. Unless there is a conflict
between peaceful citizens engag-
ed upon great and beneficent
tasks and the assassins and thieves
who fall upon them.
The non-intervention pact in
Spain is a lie. All that is official-
ly uttered in regard to Palestine
is a lie. When the High Commis-
sioner the other day called upon
all parts of the population to keep
the peace he was lyingcrudely
and brutally lying, even granting
that a few misguided Revisionists,
with the disapproval of the whole
of Jewry, have recently returned
feebly a few blows. Had Sir Har-
ry MacMichael desired to speak
the truth he would have called up-
on the Arabs to cease from mur-
der, theft and sabotage and assur-
ed them that the British Empire
could never countenance murder,
theft and sabotage as political
methods. Instead he lied by feign-
ing that there was a conflict be-'
THE UNIONS "TRAILER BOYS" HOMEWARD BOUND
Still seem comfortable in their car and trailer home. Sponsored by the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations as the "Jewish Religious Caravan of "1938," these five upperclass-
men of the Hebrew Union College have left a trail of accomplishment and Jewish enthusi-
asm behind them, according to the testimony afforded by letters received at the Executive
Offices of the parent body of American Liberal Judaism in Cincinnati. Left to right, they
are Joseph Narot of Cleveland, Melvin Sands of Detroit and Paul Oorin of Chicago, who
have "de luxe" sleeping quarters in the trailer itself; and Milton Rosenbaum of New York
City with Sylvan Schwartzman of Baltimore, the two tallest members of the quintet (both
well over six feet) who make their bed inside the car. This is done by means of an ingen-
ious arrangement which permits the back of the front seat to be lowered and converts a se-
dan into a bedroom. The caravaneers have co vered more than eight thousand miles through
small Jewish communities between Cincinnati and the Pacific Coast.

In response to the appeal by

emergency Rabbi Skop and Can-

SYNAGOGUE RENOVATION
The Jewish community will re-
turn to services this Rosh Has-
tween two parties or factions
standing on some conceivable com-
mon ground.
Thus they lie about Spain; thus
they lie about Palestine.
The whole issue is worth rais-
ing in this place because weak-
minded Jews are taken in. They
are not taken in by the lie about
Soain. But they are taken in by
the lie about Palestine, because
they have a bad conscience about
Palestine, about not doing enough
or sacrificing enough for their
people or for Palestine. So they
subscribe to the official lie con-
cerning a "conflict" between Arab
and Jew. There is no conflict be-
tween Nazi and Jewthat they
will grantnor between Fascist
and Jew nor Arab and Jew. There
are gangsters and murderers at-
tacking the Jewish people in the
world and in the homeland. eLt
us at least, at least, as Jews, not
subscribe to the lies of the gang-
sters and the murderers and their
political defenders.

HEARTFELT MAZEL TOV TO
NEWLYWEDS
One of the most brilliant and
beautifully impressive weddings
yet held in the Jewish community
was that of Miss Ruth Esther Ro-
sen, only daughter of Mrs. Jesse
Rosen to Mr. Joseph Wittenstein.
The ceremony took place in the
synagogue which was banked with
gorgeous flowers and floral can-
opy. The wedding procession of
ushers, bridesmaids, flower girls
and relatives began promptly at
3:00 p. m., with Rabbi Morris A.
Skop officiating.
Miss Rosen, popular school
teacher and member of the Syna-
gogue Religious School Faculty,
included in her wedding party
some of Orlando's outstanding
young people including Miss Flor-
ence Wittenstein, maid of honor.
Miss Elaine Klepper, Tybell Wit-
tenstein, Mrs. Morris Gordon, Mrs.
Jack Wolfson, Ralph Meitin of
Albany, N. Y., best man, George

Mr. Joseph Wittenstein, the
groom, is the son of Mr. and Mrs.

ding trip the couple will be at
home to their friends at 439 Catli-

who desire to become members of
our Sunday School faculty. The
announcement, last week, in the
Jewish Floridian relative to the
importance of self-dedication to
the ideals and history of our peo-

brought many letters from young
people. Our curriculum is being
prepared and a detailed descrip-

future concerning the Sunday
School and Talmud Torah.
CONGREGATIONAL MEETING
A series of congregational din-
ners and meetings will be part of
the program of the new adminis-

Almighty grant him "Hatzlocha"
and give "Sichliyos" to the lead
ers of the Y. M. H. A. to co-op-
erate with him in all his endeav-
ors.
LONDON TIMES
IS PRO-JEWISH
London, (WNS, Palcor Agency)
In its leading editorial comment-
ing upon the recent radio broad-
casts of High Commissioner Mac-
Michael and Colonial Secretary
MacDonald, the London Times de-
clared that in view of the fact
that the Arabs have occupied Pal-
estine and Syria for many cen-
turies without contributing sub-
stantially to the development of
these countries, they "must allow
the Jews to rebuild the national
home that was theirs two thous-
and years ago and give the Jews
a chance to try to rejuvenate the
Levant through Zionism."
The Times editorial observes
that the radio addresses by the
High Commissioner and the Colon-
ial Secretary left no doubt that
fundamental British policy on par-
' tition has "not been and will not
be deflected by terrorism." Both
i admitted, the Times says, that its
| final form cannot be established
until the Technical Commission on
Partition has finished its work
which may not be completed for
weeks or even months.
AssertinR that recent events in
Palestine have vindicated the late
Lord Peel's recommendation that
the races be separated, the Times
points out that the present Com-
mission is empowered to suggest
modification? in the partition plan
but not its abandonment. Con-
tinuing the Times states that the
Government is determined to base
its action on a just consideration
of the rival and often incompat-
ible claims of the two peoples.

of the Austrian Jewish War Vet-
erans, and the first Austrian Jew-
ish ex-serviceman to arrive in the

will be one of the principal speak-
ers at the forty-third National
Encampment of the Jewish War
Veterans of the United States, to

Convention chairman.
Mr. Stiassny will address the
convention on the present status

tria and will outline a plan for
aiding them.
A first lieutenant in the Aus-
trian infantry, Stiassny served
four years at the front during the
World War, being wounded once
and winning six decorations for
bravery under fire. When the
Nazis invaded Austria he was vice
commander-in-chief of the Aus-
trian Jewish War Veterans, the
first Jewish organization to be
suppressed. Stiassny, Captain Ed-
ler con Friedmann, the president,
and General Sommer, a former
President, were all arrested. The

tration camp but Stiassny was re-
leased after several weeks. He
was enabled to come to this coun-
try through the aid of the Jew-
ish War Veterans of the U. S. '
Mr. Stiassny is also general
secretary of the World Congress
of Jewish Ex-Servicemen, which
was founded in Vienna in 1935
and maintained its headquarters
there until March, 1938. He ex-
pects "to transfer the headquarters
to the United States in Tiew of
the fact that the three major of-
ficers are now in this country.

SPINOZA GROUP
HEARS LECTURE
"The Arab attacks are as cruel
as they are unjustified," Dr. Wolf-
son told the Spinoza Group last
Saturday afternoon. The Jews
have brought to the Arabs import-
ant benefits in sanitation and
health. They have introduced pre-
ventive medicine and are stamping
out trachoma and malaria. Many
of the Jewish hospitals and clini.f
are available to the Arabs.
If left alone the Jews would get
along well with the Arabs. They
are sharing with the Arabs the
fruits of their labor and industry:
the University, the schools, the
hospitals, the social welfare cen-
ters, the increased wealth produc-
tion and the increased standard
of living.
The trouble in Palestine comes
from the top. The feudal land
owners as they see their peasantry
liberated by Jewish -influences,
and passing out of their control.
The English imperialists who gee
a rapidly increasing Jewish popu.
lation that refuses to be treated
as natives and inferiors.
These are our enemies in Pales-
tine. Not the Arab people, but
the reactionary feudal lords and
the conservative English officials.
When the Arabs will cease follow-
ing blindly their present leaders,
Jew and Arab will live together in
harmony and peace.
Professor Mark Waldman of the
City College of New York eriticiz-
ed the Jewish activities in Pales-
tine, especially the Histadruth
the Jewish Labor Organization
for excluding Arabs from their
unions. Miss Sarah Leightman,
Hebrew teacher of New Bedford,
Conn., spoke of her experience in
the Holy Land. Miss Leightman
spent two and a half years in Pal-
estine.
Next Saturday afternoon the
Group will meet again on the
lawn at 1059 Collins Avenue, Mi-
ami Beach at 3:00 p. m. Dr. Wolf-
son will give his sixth talk on
Palestine, referring briefly to Dr.
Leon Rinsker's famous book: Auto
Emancipation. Miss Sarah Leight-
man will tell some more of her
interesting experience in the Holy
Land. All are welcome to attend.

night at the Royal Palm Club un-
der the auspices of the Freda
Markowitz Post No. 174 of Jewish
War Veterans of Greater Miami.
Over one thousand persons at-

dance was given for the purpose
of raising funds to defray the ex-

which will leave Sunday for De-

National Convention of Jewish
War Veterans to Miami in 1939.
The delegates who will leave on
August 28th for the National Con-

and J. William Baros, chairman of
the Convention Committee, were

while training for the John Henry

and never before had a regulation

a shave and a haircut and he was

MEET MAXIE PRESSMAN
Keep an eagle eye peeled for
Maxie Pressman, a Jewish boy
from the Bronx now doing bis;
things for the Gloversville-Johns-
town team in the Canadian-Ameri-
can league. Maxie attended
the Bill Terry school for rookies
at Baton Rouge this spring, but
didn't impress any of the school
marsters. He returned to the
Bronx a very much disgusted
young man, but still had faith in
his pitching ability. He hitch-
hiked his way to Gloversville,
where John J. Roser became inter-
ested in him. ... So far Maxie
has more than vindicated Roser's
judgment.....He has won 11,
lost 5, with another six weeks of
the season remaining. Press-
man is 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighs
190 and pitches 'em up lefty.

Perhaps the anti-Defamation
committee may become the train-
ing ground for many of our up
md coming youngsters, in things
Jewish. At each meeting the com-
rr.'ttee proposes to invite another
.-if the members of the Lodge to
listen in and see how an active,
serious minded committee really
works. At the last mect.ui; Pr.
Jnccb H. Kaplan was a guest of
the committee and wa hope he en-
joyed being there.
There's a real problem facing
the Lodge for the comin-r season.
It must find members who are
willing to carry the burden of
keeping the State Federation real-
ly alive and working. Unfortu-
nately since the last Stale Con-
vention in Tampa, nothire what
ever has been accomplished by the
State organization, though the
time was opportune and the field
ripe for real constructive work
Spt-Pches, parliamentary ability
and the like will do but little for
the Lodge in this State. It is
work that must be had.
The above is a group picture of the members of Tau Epsi-
lon Phi's Chapter at North Carolina University, where a
unique relationship has been developed between the Jewish
fraternity and B'nai B'rith's Hillel Foundation.

Mrs. Jean Miller, who has spent
the summer at Bradley Beach, N.
J., has just returned to her home.

Miss Hazel Abrams and Miss
Esther Moed are visiting in Mia-
mi Beach. They were joined by
Miss Irene Jacobs, who spent last
week in West Palm Beach as the
guest of Mrs. H. Greenblatt.
of her sister, Miss Ruth Engelman
to Jack Wallace, formerly of this
city. The wedding will take place
in the Fall.
The Lodge will be entitled to
about twenty-two delegates and
we know there will be a scrir.ible
for the positions, not because of
the opportunity afforded for work
lut because of the good time wo
know well have in West Palm
Beach. Though all will be welcome
to the State Convention next Sep-
tember fourth and fifth, it is only
fair that those imbued with u de-
sire to serve be chosen. Unfor-
tunately, only too often we find
ptople seeking honors and good
times who want to be delegir?s.
Certainly those who have shown
a desire to serve are entitled to
represent the Lodge.
Doc Werblow had better be get-
ting on the job, with school open-
ing early next month. We feel
he has the ability and will accom-
plish much if he only tries hard
enough. A start was made J"8t
year, much must be done this com-
ing year. _
Mr. and Mrs. Ben Wolfson and
daughter, Judy, of Fort Myers,
are here spending their vacation
at Treasure Island. Mrs. Al Weiss
of Tampa, and Mrs. Ben Schwartz
of this city will be their guests
during their stay here.
Mr. Ben Blumberg of Orlando,
was the week-end guest of the
Shower Club.
Mrs. Lillian Grossman has re-
cently announced the engagement
at a recent picnic of the boys. But
. according to the stories we
hear, "Doc" needed a chaperone
himself. However, let's attribute
it to "enthusiasm."

Perhaps our good treasurer
Ben, could tell us the difference
between business and social meet-
ings. Since he started giving re-
freshments at the business meet-
ings, the business meetings have
become social. And since at the
social meetings Brother Ben col-
lects dues, the socials have bevomc
business.

What about a real meeting place
for the Lodjre? With our contin-
ually growing membership there
should be a permanent meeting
place where B'nai B'rith would
have quarters commensurate witi
its importance to the community.
How about it, Brother Stone and
your committees.
Someone's going to present the
Lodge with a large number of
time gongs, so that the speeches
of the lawyers will be somewhat
limited, if that were possible.
We're sorry to hear past pres-
ident Nathan Adelman has been
ill the last several weeks. Here's
wishing him a speedy recovery.
