USSISHKIN IS
HONORED 8Y ALL
Jerusalem, (WNS Palcor Agen-
cy)AH parties and central nat-
ional institutions and organiza-
tions in Palestine joined in expres-
sing the tribute of the Yishub to
Menahem M. Ussishkin on the oc-
casion of the celebration of the
seventy-fifth birthday of the old-
est living founder of Zionism and
President of the Jewish National
Fund.
The birthday message published
by the Jewish community of Pal-
estine hailsthe pioneer Zionist
leader as "an inspiring symbol of
national heroism, whose life has
ben the loftiest expression of
Zionist realization and activity."
A jubilee mass meeting was held
in honor of Mr. Ussishkin who is
now abroad.
A staunch fighter for Zionist
ideals, years before the convoca-
tion of the First Zionist Congress
in Basle in 1897, Ussishkin has
been in the forefront of iZonist
leadership for more than half a
century and was the foremost fig-
ure in the development of the Zion-
ist movement in his native Russia.
Since 1923 he has been Presi-
dent of the Jewish National Fund.
Hs influence has been felt in ev-
ery decisive chapter in Zionist
history during the past four de-
cades, beginning with the historic
Uganda issue at the beginning of
the century in which he was the
most vigorous factor in the oppo-
sition to the establishment of a
Jewish homeland in South Africa.
In 1919 Ussishkin was named head
of the Zionist Executive in Pales-
tine. His leonine head and firm,
vigorous manner have on occasion
evoked the label of "the iron man
of Zionism." During the recent
World Zionist Congress which de-
bated the issue of partition and
the establishment of the Jewish
State, Ussishkin was the most out-
spoken leader of the "Neinsager"
(the nay-sayers to partition.)
JEWISH OFFICERS
RESIGN RANKS
Rome, (WNS)Preferring dig-
nified resignation to enforced ous-
ter, 60 high-ranking Jewish offi-
cers in the Italian army, including
General Mario Ottlenghi, a kins-
man of the general of the same
name who was minister of war at
the turn of the century, resigned
from the army en masse because
of Italy's new racial program.
General Ottolenghi is a close
personal friend of IKing Victor
Emanuel. It is reported that
Prem;er Mussolini is urging the
Jewish officers to recall their res-
ignations because of the bad im-
pression they would create in mil-
itary circles. Some observers here
believe that the war office will
arrange that the Jewish officers
be retired on full pay and thus
avoid having them resign while at
the same time eliminating Jews
from the h'gh army command.
Meanwhile, it is reported that
considerable numbers of Jews are
preparing to leave Italy in fear of
further anti-Semitic measures.
Sales of Jewish property are in-
creasingly daily. A censorship on
mail written by Jews has been in-
stituted. Leaders of the Jewish
community in Milan will be ar-
rested shortly, the press reports,
on the ground that they have al-
ledgedly encouraged the illegal en-
try of Jewish refugees.
Speedy action to expel Jewish
lawyers from the Italian bar was
foreshadowed when the Fascist
Party, acting on the request of
the Union of Italian Barristers,
appointed a special commission
to determine how Jewish attorneys
may be excluded. Roberto Farin-
acci, Italy's number one anti-Sem-
ite, is chairman of the commission.
It is estimated that there are ap-
proximately 800 Jewish lawyers in
Italy.
New York, (WNS)Luigi An-
tonini, New York State chairman
of the American Labor Party anil
vice-president of the International
Ladies Garment Workers Union,
told a mass-meeting of Italian
needle workers that Italy's racial
and anti-Semitic policy was "an
artificial importation from Nazi.
Germany." The country's fore-
most Italian labor leader, sounded
a warning that attacks against
minorities abroad might boomer-
ang against Italians and Germans
here.
NOTED LEADER
IS CANDIDATE
Montreal, (WNS)Peter Berco-
vitch, Jewish member of the Que-
bec Provincial Legislature since
1916, is slated to succeed the late
Samuel W. Jacobs as member of
the Canadian House of Commons
from the St. Lawrence Cartier di-
vir'on in Montreal.
Mr. Bercovitch has already an-
nounced his candidacy, and politi-
cal observers regard his election
as a certainty in view of the pre-
dominantly Jewish character of
the electorate in that district. A
native of Montreal, Bercovitrh has
served seven consecutive terms .;n
the Quebec legislature. He is a
former president of the Jewish Im-
migrant Aid Society of Canada.
11! ERITH WILL
CHURCHES URGED
TUNE IN SUNDAY
MORNING AT 9:06
The Jtwiih Floridian will
again present another In its
series of weekly broadcasts
this coming- Sunday morning-
orer Station WKAT (1500 k.
o.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's fall
of interesting news and com-
ments and mnsic.
PhiladelphiaThe churchos of
America were urged to enter the
matrimonial agency f'ild, follow-
ing an expose by a lo-al newspa-
per of a "marriage-by-mail" bus-
iness.
The suggestion was advanced by
the Rev. D. Wilmot Gateson, rec-
tor of the Protestant Episcopal
Church of the Savior, who recently
established a non-sectar'an "Body,
Mind and Soul" Clinic here which
has met with considerable success.
"Matrimonial agencies of a high
soc'-al order are needed, provided
they can be conducted by socially
minded people who properly super-
vise every phase of the activities
of the organizations," he said.
Th"re are many good and worthy
people who genuinely need the ser-
vices of such agene'es. They are
the men and women who have not
won mates on their own initiative,
"Many of the people who need
these services would make fine
mates. They may not have what
superficial people call attractive-
ness, but they have the essent'al
elements of faithfulness, loyalty
and devotion so much needed in
marriage.
The very existence of racketeer-
ing marriage agencies proves that
a real need for legitimate matri-
mon;al agencies exists. We must
satisfy it. I believe that some
workable solution could be provid-
ed through such an excellent in-
stitution as the Marrriage Council
Bureau in cooperation with the
churches.
"My church is a matrimonial
agencyand I believe a church
should be. I have a standing
agreement with my young mem-
bers to marry them without a fee
if they have met in the church
and plan to be married in the
church. There is no reason why
a decent, honest, properly super-
vised matrimonial agency should
not work and work wellbut it
certainly should not be run for
profit."
Plans announced for the second
annual convention of the Florida
Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges
to be held at the George Washing-
ton Hotel next Sunday and Mon-
day, September 4th and 5th, in-

Hotel. In the afternoon a business
session will be held and the ladies

throughout the Palm Beach area
to be followed by "open bar" late
in the afternoon. Sunday night a
banquet and dance will be tendered
to the delegates and guests at the
hotel with Mr. Harry Adelberg
president of District Lodge of the
Fifth District, and Mr. Pat Can-
non, congressional nominee of this
area as the principal speakers. A

SPINOZA GROUP
SESSIONS CONTINUE
"Auto-Emancipationfree your-
selftake your destiny into your
own hands" was the topic of Dr.
Wolfson's address before the Spin-
oza Group last Saturday after-
noon. This was a great a message
as the great words spoken of old:
Justice, justice thou shalt pursue,
like thou shall love thy neighbor
as thyself or like Nations shall
not lift sword against nation.
Since Dr. Pinsker published his
famous Auto-Emancipation it has
cast a magic spell upon the hearts
and minds of the most devoted and
loyal of our people.
How to go about it? The an-
swer is Zion. The path to Auto-
Emancipation of the Jewish people
is the path that leads to Zon, to
a self-governing Jewish communi-
ty in Palestine. Zionism, therefore
appeared on the scene of Jewish
life as the practical applcation of
j the principle of Auto-Emancipa-
' tion.
Mi?? Sarah Lightman continued
to describe the life of the Jews in
i Palestine and Mrs. M. Krieger
spoke of her experiences while vis-
iting the Holy Land. Next Sat-
| urday afternoon the Spinoza Group
will meet as usual on the lawn at
1059 Collins Avenue. Dr. Wolf son
I will conclude hia lecture course
I on Zionism and Palestine. All are
welcome to attend.

FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 2, 1938
VOLUME 11.NUMBER 34.
Frank, Open and Above Board
For a number of years B'nai B'rith and its laudable pur-
poses were practically unknown in Florida. There were spor-
adic attempts to reorganize the Lodges in the State for many
years but nothing much came of it. When Mr. Hyman Jacobs
of Atlanta became one of the District's officers, he, coming to
the realization that much could be done in Florida, devoted him-
self assiduously to the task. Months of effort resulted in his en-
listing the aid of some of Miami's leading Jewish communal
leaders and led to the rehabilitation of the Miami Lodge. To-
day the Miami Lodge is close to the five hundred membership
mark and has set for itself the goal of one thousand members
during 1939.
A little more than a year ago the Florida State Federation
of B'nai B'rith Lodges was organized. There was much talking
and a lot of promising. The field for fruitful accomplishment
was indeed fertile, if there were men who would seed and work
the field. There was and still is plenty of work in the field of
educational work among the Jewish students in the various
state colleges; the anti-Defamation work is growing larger each
and every day.
Yet, if we are to be frank, open and above board, the an-
swer to the query. "What has the State Federation accom-
plished?, must and will be "Absolutely nothing."
The time has come when the delegates to the State Federa-
tion must be men enough to face the facts. Either we get to
work and accomplish something or disband the organization.
That something can be done has been amply proven by the work
of the anti-Defamation committee in Miami. That work can be
done if it is attempted was shown1 recently in the University of
Miami. That Lodges can be kept alive and not be permitted to
die down for lack of interest has beeniproven beyond peradven-
ture of doubt by the Miami Lodge.
The members of the Miami Lodge are not paragons of vir-
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..... i
THE Jewish Floridian is the

Happy to Serve You
I WRITE AS I
PLEASE
The Jew puts it very poignantly
"Auf'n ganov brent der hitel;"
the colloquial phrase calls it
"guilty conscience." In the past
several weeks this column has car-
ried comments on matters affect-
ing particular people and particu-
lar occurrences. Yet there have
been a number of calls from those
who thought the particular com-
ment applied directly to them. As
a matter of fact it concerned oth-
ers. However, if these comments
of your humble scrivener will put
people on notice and make them
sit up and think; it's just fine and
dandy.
Our heart goes out to those of
the good men and women of this
community who want a right
wronged. When an injustice is
done to a particular individual, no
matter how wrong, it does not nec-
essarily become a matter of pub-
lic interest, and certainly not a
"Jewish" matter. Public opinion
may become an important factor
in such a case if properly applied.
This should be a hint to the wise.
Our hats off to those responsible
for the splendid work now being
carried on by the Miami Section
of the National Council of Jewish
Women in its immigration endeav-
ors. What a lesson in life one can
obtain by just looking on. Not
that these good women will ever
receive thanks. Their only reward
will be the knowledge of a work
well done.
A lesson In communal under-
standing was shown last Sunday
night when three separate affairs
were run at the same time, and
neither was a real success though
each was a deserving cause. Co-
operation must be the keynote or
all will suffer.
If our good folks would learn
that they must take an interest in
things Jewish during their life,
the unpleasantness that arises
when a death occurs would per-
haps not occur. Too many deem
it their duty to forget their Jew-
ishness except when emergencies
arise.
Let's decide to try and avoid
mistakes on the part of organiza-
tion so that flagrant violations
need not happen. Most of this
uncalled for behavior is not re-
cause of wanting to do wrong but
because of simple ignorance of
proper attitudes and actions. Let's
aid the organization so that it
need not again err.
I'm just wondering if those who
bellow in private will even whis-
per in public. That applies to
many of the leaders of this com-
munity who spend valuable time
POPE PIUS
(Religious News Service)
LondonThe storm of insults
and calumny against the Church
and against the Pope, in Germany,
have reached an unparalleled pitch
of ferocity and venom the Cath-
olic Herald charges.
Official newspapers such as the
Volkischer Beobachter combine
with the lowest "rags" in a cam-
paign aga:nst the Pope and all
that Catholics hold sacred, it is
declared.
This is said to be the German
reply to the Pope's latest allocu-
tion against exaggerated racial-
ism and nationalism.
Some of the accusatiins made' in
recent weeks are:
"The Pope is paid by the Jews
for his condemnation of racialism.
"He is an old fool who does not
know what he is talking about.
"He is working for Bolshevism.
"He wants to make the Italian
people rebel against the Fascist
regime.
"He is not even approved in his
attitude by his own Hierarchy.
"He wants to save the existence
of Catholic Action, which is a
purely political institution."
The organ of the S. S. storm
troops in Das Schwarze Korps,
for which Heinrich Himmler. su-
preme head of the German police
is responsible has, says the Cath-
olic Herald's German correspon-
dent, once more beaten all records
j for obscenity.
One of the editors, who writes
gossip in Berlin dialect, talked
about the Euchariatic World Con-
gress in what were probably the
most sacrilegious terms that have
ever been used in any German an-
ti-clerical publication, it is charg-
ed.

keep their mouths shut when there
is an opportunity to impress the
general public.
Wondering how many of you
good folks will be buncoed by
those claiming to represent the
people when actually they're Jews
only on the eve of elections or
when they need you for a favor.
Can't believe that you good
people can forget that the Jewish
Floridian has been and will con-
tinue to be the only paper that
carries your news fifty-two weeks
a year and asks nothing but your
cooperation in return for the ser-1
vice given you.
How many of you members of
B'nai B'rith and others of the

tue, masters of the impossible or possessed of superhuman pow-
ers. They have been taught the lesson of application to a worth
while purpose. If the West Palm Beach convention is to accom-
plish anything at all, it must be done in the spirit of the ap-
proaching penitential days We must admit our faults and try
to remedy them for the future. Those aspiring to office should
be honest with themselves and decline unless they are able,
willing and qualified to do the work required of them. This
convention and its actions, undominated and uninfluenced by
petty sectional jealousies. untrammelled by selfish desires
for honors, will decide the future of the Florida Federation of
B'nai B'rith Lodges.
Let us so act that the future will be one of achievement, not
of failure.
AN OPEN LETTER BY THE
RABBINICAL ASSOCIATION
OF GREATER MIAMI
At this time of the year when
Jews of all shades of religious be-
lief and interest feel the spirit of
Teshuva, our repentance and re-
turn to their religion, in many a
Jewish community individuals try
to capitalize on religion.
The synagogue, the spiritual
and cultural, historic and religious
center of a Jewish community,
finds this the best time to gather
the.funds to keep it open through-
out the year. Through the sale of
Holy Day tickets, appeal for sy-
nagogue membership, inquiry i|ito
children's Jewish education and
adults communal participation, at
this time, a great impetus towards
the strengthening of communal
consciousness and unity, and of
Jewish education is aroused. The
activity of the synagogue and
temple begun at the end of the
Jewish year ie the beginning for
a whole New Year's progress.
Those irresponsible and wilfully
blind individuals who, refusing to
see all this, offer Jews a place of
worship for the H-'gh Holy Days
pocketing the resulting collection
for their own selves, thereby rob
the synagogue of its rightful in-
come, and mark, not the beginning,
but the end of Jewish integration,
consciousness and communal pro-
gress.
i
We. the Rabbis of Greater Mi-
ami, condemn most strongly all
such individuals who would turn
a hotel, a hall or a private home
into a house of worship for their
personal aggrandizement. We con-
demn such places as leading to
the breakdown of Jewish morale.
We condemn those who, not alone
do not help the synagogue and
temple in their sacred, year-round
work by their presence and sup-
port during the High Holy Days
but even destroy their power r*V
attending services held at "mush-
room synagogues" run for person-
al profit.
We hope that no such evil will
arise in our community this year
or any year, that no responsible
Jew will help make a racket of
our religion by patronizing such
places should they seek to enter
our community.
We welcome every Jew to our
services at the various synagogues
and temples in our community.
We pray to God to grant every
Jew a spiritually happy and pros-
perous New Year.

ACT OF JEW
Detroit, (WNS)In a front
page editorial in English entitled
"Mr. Leve Teaches the Bund," the
Detroit Sonntagsblatt der Abend-
post, Detroit German-language
paper, hails Samuel J. Leve, chair-
man of the convention committee
of the Jew-'nh War Veterans, for
withdrawing from the race for the
city council in favor of John W.
Smith, former mayor and post-
master, who has long been prom-
inent in German-American circles.
The German-language paper de-
clares that Mr. Leve's withdrawal
"is additional proof, if any were
reeded, of his wholesome Ameri-
canism," and "commends to the
attention of the eastern seaboard's
Bund (Nati German American
Bund) and other cleavage-creating:
forces, the salutary forces moti-
vating Mr. Leve's withdrawal."
Mr. Leve announced his with-
drawal in a statement declaring
"Mr. Smith is able and more ex-
perienced in councilmanic duties
than I and I think he could serve
the city more efficiently." The
Sonntagsblatt said that "for sheer
unselfishness, that state m e n t
-tands apart."
It is amazing to what lengths
the Hitlerites go to befog the
minds of their unfortunate fellow
countrymen. Not content with
having destroyed the Masonic
Lodges in Germany and having de-
graded their members, they would
further belittle the Fraternity in
the opinion of their people by re-
sorting to pure fabrication.
The following item from an un-
named German newspaper is a
case in point:
"The American Masonic Lodge
'Chicago Illinois, has resolved to
erect on a square or in a park of
Chicago a monument 'in honor of
all brethren of the whole world
who have died for Freemasonry.'
As the government of the City of
Chicago consists largely of Free-
masons, it gave its consent. The
Freemasons figure on raising at
least a million dollars, especially
as the Jewish banks have pledged
their support. If the fellows of
the apron and the trowel think
they must in this manner restore
their badly damaged reputation,
we cannot do anything to prevent
them. They have, by their deeds,
erected for themselves in other
parts of the world a monument
which, while not beautiful, is more
enduring than the stone which is
to be misused in Chicago. If we
may offer a suggestion, we would
make one with regard to the form
of the monument: a pavilion won't
do; they had better build a replica
of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem,
in order that the Gentiles among
the brethren may also have a
place of pilgrimage."
There is no American Masonic
Lodge in the State of Illinois or
elsewhere known as the "Chicago-
Illinois" Lodge. Like the above
reference the statement that "the
Government of the City of Chica-
go consists largely of Freemasons"
is fallacious. The mayor of Chi-
cago and many ranking officials
of that metropolis are Roman
Catholics.
Of course, German papers are
expected to publish anything sug-
gested or submitted by the Hitler-
ites, and there is never any re-
course to facts to substantiate
the truth or falsity of a statement,
so the Germans are in a worse
predicament on any question than
"The Three Blind Mice."

THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN
PAGE FIVE
THE WORLD'S WINDOW
-By LUDWIQ LEWISOHN-
The Nation (Number of August
20th carries a featured editorial
with the caption: Anti-Semitism is
here. The Nation sincerely dis-
likes anti-Semitism and despises
it as both undemocratic and vul-
gar.
AH the editors have Jewish
friends and associates, most of
them, if no* *H them, shadow
Jews without Jewish knowledge,
Jewish bindings, with Jewish back-
grounds carefully repressed, with
Jewish aspirations carefully merg-
ed in some general hope which
does not exist.
This being so, it follows that
the Nation's sincere alarm and
solicitude issue is no insight and
is no helpfulness. Here is the gist
of the editor's argument. "Race
prejudice is a by-product of indus-
trial and political reaction." Now
it can be truly said that raca-pre-
judice is intensified by industrial
and political reaction. But the
liberals and radicals who pretend
to themselves that the sources of
race-prejudice are no deeper, that
race-prejudice is not pre-existent
to any given industrial or political
situation, are not only doing the
Jewish people no good, but may
easily do them harm.
Let us illustrate. The Nation
says: conservative Jews are in an
ugly dilemma. Truth. Conserva-
tive Jews cannot anywhere in the
world (including America) freely
serve their interests and convic-
tions because all conservative par-
ties everywhere (including Amer-
ica) are more or less anti-Semi-
tic. Thence the Nation draws the
argument that all Jews must be
left-swingers of some kind and
must not object to the conspicuous
ness of Jewish radicals etc. Now
this is an excessively silly and
dangerous argument. For the
truth is that the false and deadly
slander of Jewry's trying to tear
down Western civilization should
not and need not be intensified
by frivolous individual acts and
gestures and that the tragedy of
the Jew of the diaspora as a poli-
tical being lies fathoms deeper
than the editors of the Nation
conceive.
By nature, tradition, training,
unspoiled instinct the Jew is a
conservor of the historic goods of
civilization. Yet he dare not and
cannot be a conservative. By na-
ture the Jew is passionately con-
cerned for the oppressed and down
trodden. Yet the radicalism of
this age, which the Jew did not
makefor Karl Marx was a rene-
Knde afflicted with self-hatred
forces the Jew into alien and dan-
gerous ideologies, for the propaga-
tion of which he is then crucified.
Thus the diaspora Jew cannot be
true to himself whatever political
faith he embraces. He is, wheth-
er as conservative or as radical,
not his own man, not a creature
being what he was meant to be,
but the product of majority pres-
surethe product of powerless-
ness or fear. From this set of
damnable circumstances arises the
pitiful phenomenon of the Jewish
bourgeois not wholly displeased
at the theoretical radicalism of
some of his sons and daughters,
because expropriation by a Social-
ist state is no immediate danger
and he sillily hopes that a dose
(not too large) of radicalism may
ward off Fascism, of which he is,
quite rightly, in deadly terror.
In other words, the Jew In the
diaspora to in a false positiona
TTUumL
hopelessly, pitifully, monstrously
false position, whatever he is,
whatever he does. It is on old,
old story which evidently the edi-
tors of the Nation have never
heard. The conservatism of the
world to not the Jew's conserva-
tism; the radicalism of the world
is not the Jew's radicalism. And
this situation is unendurably inten-
sified in this age of doctrines
gone mad. Nothing can be more
un-Jewish (or un-Christian for
that matter) than either Fascism
or Communism. The Jew who ap-
proaches either is a crippled and
perverted creature, like the Jew
who is "doggy" or "horsey" out
of assimilatory swank. He is lost
to himself, to his people, to the
world.
Truly and correctly the Nation
ends with the observation that
"the future of the Jew in America
is tied tht to the future of Dem-
ocracy." Only one could wish that
the lovers of democracy, such as
the editors of the Nation, had a
deeper and subtler insight into the
difficulties of the Jew and would
conceive democracy in terms that
included the character of the Jew
(or any other racial and cultural
minority) as such, in his own na-
ture, as a contributor to cultural
political processes and not as one
for whose absorption by such pro-
cesses they hoped and prayed.

appointed general chairman of the
seventh annual "Y" dance. This
makes it four years in a row that
he has been named to this posi-

gratulated for his selection of so
capable a man to head this com-
mittee. With Mr. Pallot, the fol-
lowing chairmen were designated:
Tickets, Nat Blumberg; Program,
Harry Gordon; and Publicity, Har-

that this dance under Al Pallot's
leadership will surpass any other
affair ever held in Miami. We
make this statement advisedly be-
cause from present plans which
are not complete, this affair will
be different and unique. Watch

LOSE JOBS
Denver, (WNS) Because they
pleaded guilty to drawing swas-
tikas on West Colfax Avenue, one
of Denver's principal streets, two
WPA workers supposedly engaged
in painting traffic warning signs
on pavements, were dismissed.
The. two workers, Eugene P.
Harvey and Elmer Hackmeister.
admitted they drew the Nazi em-
blems, but said they meant no
harm. Captain James J. Pitt, chief
of the police traffic bureau, quot-
ed Harvey as saying: "We had
been painting traffic signs on the
pavement and fcad finished the
job. We sat on the curb waiting
for a truck to come along to take
us to another job. We got to ar-
guing about the right way to draw
the Nazi swastikathat is all
there is to it." One swastika had
the words "HitlerBund is here"
under it. Captain Pitt said he did
not believe either man was a mem-
ber of the Nazi Bund.

be thrilled at the unusual progress
the Glee Club is making. At a
rehearsal held August 25th twen-
ty-two golden voices echoed their
melodious chords throughout the
building under the able direction
of Jerry Bass. Watch this unit
go to town. Good luck to you
Jerry, we're all rooting for you.
MISS DOROTHY LIGHTMAN
DIRECTS DRAMATIC CLUB
Casting for two one act plays
sponsored by the Dramatic Club
was held Thursday, August 25th
at 8:00 o'clock in the evening.
Miss Dorothy Lightman, their
coach is very much encouraged
with our talent. Announcements
of those who will take part in the
plays will be made by Miss Light-
man soon. There is still time for
you to join this club. Require-
ments are membership in the "Y"
and a desire to concentrate. That's
all; See Miss Lightman or the Ex-
ecutive Director and sign up now.
NEWS IN AND AROUND TOWN
Mr. Harry Rose, ardent "Y"
member, left for Savannah, Ga., as
a delegate to the Workmen's Cir-
cle Convention in that city. From
there he will leave for a month's
vacation in New York where he
will visit his son, Leonard, the
cello artist. On September 28th.
Mrs. Samuel Shindell president of
the Y. W. H. A., and her husband
will celebrate their twelfth wed-
ding anniversary. Hy Merlin,
president of Junior "Y" is leaving
for Emory University, in Atlanta,
Ga., next week and will be replac-
By special arrangements with
Radio Station WKAT of Miami
Beach, announcements of various
activities in the "Y" are being
broadcast at intervals throughout
the day. The Executive Director,
Mr. Maurice Grossman is planning
to make these broadcasts a reg-
ular feature of the organization.
Not bad at all, eh what?
SOCIAL SERVICE
DEPARTMENT
From present indications, the
coming season promises to be a
busy one for our "Y." In order
to accommodate the many visitors
who will be with us, our Executive
Director is preparing a directory
of available rooms and board. We
have received several inquiries for
apartments from our Northern
friends, and we feel it would be
showing a spirit of hospitality if
we could advise strangers, within
our midst, where they may rest
their weary bones. If you have
any rooms or apartments to rent,
or, if you can furnish table board,
see the Executive Director and
register.
Many of our unemployed mem-
bers as well as other Jewish Mi-
ami residents, have consulted Mr.
Maurice Grossman, our Executive
Director about obtaining work for
them. It would be a splendid
thing if we could place some of
these men and women and for that
reason a Social Service Depart-
ment has been established. If you
wish to employ any help, of any
nature whatsoever please phone
Mr. Grossman at the "Y" 3-4012.
Let's make this a real Social Ser-
vicein the fullest sense of the
word.

qONGREGATJONAL DINNER
AND MEETING
It is the policy of the president
and Board of Directors to combine
as often as possible, congregation-
al dinners and meetings in order
to stimulate active participation
in the affairs of the congregation.
The first in a series of such
meetings will take place Sunday
evening, September 11th at 7:00
o'clock honoring the charter mem-
bers and pioneers of Beth David
Congregation. We trust that ev-
ery member and his wife will be
present. The dinner will be pre-
pared and served by the members
of the Sisterhood at no charge to
our members and wives. This is
the congregation's treat. Imme-
diately following the dinner a
brief meeting will take place and
a cultural program will be pre-
sented by Mr. Isidor Cohen who
will serve as toastmaster and
chairman. We are positive that
the auditorium will be filled to
capacity and therefore ask the
members to come early. Don't for-
get Sunday, September 11th at

RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION
We ask all parents to realize
that the doors of our Hebrew
School have been open all summer
and will continue to be open. Even
at this late summer date, you can
still send your children to be in-
structed, so as to prepare them
for the Fall term. A new curri-
culum and program will be inst-i
tuted for the coming semester for
both Talmud Torah and Sunday-
School. Those who are interested
in joining our faculty will please
notify the Rabbi or Mrs. Meyer
Schwartz, superintendent. A
meeting will take place shorth-
and appointments will be made,
so please notify us at once before
it is too late.
XXX
HIGH HOLIDAY PROGRAM
A seating committee is in ses-
sion at the synagogue to take care
of the needs of our members and
friends. In order to avoid diffi-
culties, please contact Mr. Mendel
Scheinberg and secure your seats
now. The synagogue is being re-
decorated and proper ventilation
will be provided due to the devo-
tion of one of our faithful mem-
bers who is donating the facilities.
The proper announcement will be
made in an early issue of the Flor-
idian. Make your reservations
now!

A WORD TO THE WISE
During the past five or six years
we have noticed a tendency on the
part of some of the lay leaders
to garb themselves in the hollow-
neas of professional egotismthe
"Know Alls." The spiritual lead-
er, true and sincere to his calling,
serving his congregation and com-
munity faithfully, never knows
the truth when any disputes his
right to speak his thoughts and
proclaim his views. People have
often disagreed with him, that is
their right. But more often he
does not agree with his people and
never does he hesitate to speak
his mind. We do so now with the
hope of rc-awakening a true Jew-
ish spirit, for we have able people
among Miami laity who do not and
will not respond to the call of
Jewry, the call of the community,
unless they would find that it
"pays." We have people in our
midst who profess allegiance to
Judaism, but who do not live by
their professions.
We have people who do not
think of Judaism beyond their
convenience and they place their
convenience above the mandates
of their Judaism. If they are
hurt then it is a "Chillul Hashem"
otherwise let the Rabbis worry. If
they cast aspersions by word or
action, and hurt their co-religion-
ists, it is for "Kiddush Hashem"
never mind that they trample upon
the principles and ideals which
Rabbis uphold. We have people
who do shirk responsibilities, peo-
ple who are painfully ungenerous
and extremely irresponsible re-
bounding to the discredit of the
entire Jewish community. These
things are true and we say to you,
our people, that it is this that is
a painful and heart-corroding ex-
perience. Was there any reason
under the sun for a Jewish organ-
ization to permit and be silent
when its cohorts violated flagrant-
ly a Jewish law and proceeded to
"play ball" last Friday night on
the Holy Sabbath of our people?
Is it proper for some professional
men by their actions to permit a
vicious (even if not too well-
founded) rumor to seep into our
Jewish communal life questioning
their integrity and redounding to
our discredit?
By all that is sacred, by all that
is fine and ennobling in life, do
not sneer, at this earnest and pas-
sionate pleato be cautious and
"occasionally" bear in mind that
you are responsible for the Great
Cause and Destiny of Israel and
that that Cause and Destiny dare
not fail!

Y. M. H. I. NOTES
Y. M. H. A. COPS GOLDEN-
BALL CHAMPIONSHIP 5-2
Before a crowd of approximate-
ly 3,000 enthusiastic ball fans as-
sembled at Miami Field Wednes-
day night the Y. M. H. A. dia-
mondball team playing heads-up
ball behind the excellent pitching
of Jimmy Hershey defeated the
Pan American Airways team 5 to
2. Two fielding gems made by
our star first baseman, Nat Blum-
berg and a spectacular shoe string
catch by Davis Lackawitz pulled
Jimmy out of several tight spots.
The Gilman Brothers, Ralph and
Benny played their usual spark-
ling game and Bernie Frank cov-
ered third base as only he can.
Leo Lipowsky during the tourna-
ment, was the leading batsman
with a batting mark of 555. Art
Kahn and Izzy Mayers covering
short and second respectively done
themselves proud during the tour-
ney. The catching of Harry Gol-
den played an important part in
the victory.
The two co-managers of the
team, Dr. Barney Weinkle and
Aaron Weinkle were important
factors.
Did you know that the "Y"
made a total of 48 hits to their
opponents 40 arid that the last
four games won by the "Y" they
were outhit 30 to 18. That re-
quires heads-up ball and that's
what won the championship.
We express our sincere thanks
to Luther Voltz, Carl Dillon and
Ernie Seiler for the splendid re-

B'NAI B'RITH
BRIEFS
By E. ALBERT PALLOT
Why should I be a member of
the B'nai B'rith?
That question has been asked
me repeatedly. Here are some
logical and sound reasons why ev-
eryone should become a member
of this great fraternal order. It
is the largest and oldest Jewish
organization throughout the world.
It spreads usefulness as a medium
for relief for the persecuted in
various parts of the world. The
order does its part to nullify dis-
crimination. In industry and in
all walks of life, its objectives are
the principles of morality, benev-
olence, philanthropy, uniting them
with charity and brotherly love.
Aren't these few thoughts suf-
ficient to compel and urge all of
you to become a member of our
order? We shall and must have
one thousand members before Jan-
uary 1st, 1939, and if all of the
members will do their part and
each just bring in one additional
member, I feel satisfied that we
can reach our objective.
Florida Federation of B'nai
B'rith will hold its largest conven-
tion at West Palm Beach, next
Sunday and Monday, Labor Day
week-end. More delegates and I
guests will attend this convention I
than ever before and it will be \
marked with serious problems in
this state and followed by much
progressive action. Much thought
should be given to student union
work at the various Florida Uni-
versities. Jewish activities and
studies should be stimulated there.
Much enthusiasm will be created
for the student body by a well laid
and co-ordinated program. Serious
consideration should be given to
the state-wide anti-Defamation
work. A chairman should be
elected who will really be active
and who has a sufficient initiative
and interest to lay out and direct
a constructive program that will
be supported by all of the Lodges
in the State.
REP. DIES TO
BE SPEAKER
Detroit, (WNS) Representa-
tive Martin Dies of Texas, chair-
man of the Special Congressional
Committee Investigat ing -un-
American Activities, and Louis
Johnson, Assistant Secretary of
War, will be the principal speak-
ers at the 43rd annual national
encampment of the Jewish War
Veterans of the United States op-
ening here Friday, September 2nd,
and continuing until September
5th, it was announced by Samuel
J. Leve. general convention chair-
man. Other speakers wijl be Gen-
eral Frank T. Hines, administrator
of the U. S. Veteran* Bureau;
Representative Samuel Dickstein
of New York; Dr. Abba Hillel Sil
ver of Cleveland, national chair-
man of the United Palestine Ap-
peal; and Ernest Stjassny, former
vice-commander of the Austrian
Jewish War Veterans, the first
Jewish ex-serviceman from Aus-
tria to reach this country since
the Anschluss.
Some 20,000 Jewish veterans
from every state in the Union are
expected at the encampment which
convention officials say will be
the biggest in J. W. V.'s 43-year
history. The fact that the encamp-
ment is being held in the Middle
West for the first time is bringing
out large delegations from the
Western posts. The attendance
will also be swelled by 5.000 mem
bers of the Sons of J. W. V., the
only Jewish youth patriotic organ-
ization in the country, which will
hold its first national convention
in Detroit, and by some 8,000 mem-
bers of the Ladies Auxiliary.
Among the important business
on the convention's agenda i.s the
adoption of a program for com-
batting Communism, Nazism and
Fascism; the launching of an ex-
tensive Americanization drive-
the initiation of a campaign to
erect the first monument in the
United States to American Jews
-ho laid down their lives in th
wars of the Republic; ratification
of a new constitution to be draft-
ed at a constitutional convention
preceding the encampment; and
the election of new officers, in-
cluding a national commander and
the six regional vice-commanders.

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 2, 1938 PRICE FIVE CENTS REFUSE CONFER JS)—George Rublee, ie Intergovernmental Committee, and My>r, American vicetho Committee, have is to go to Germany tiat ions with the Reich regarding plans for fugees to emigrate Di-tion of their capital, fcsed after a conference fcn Mr. Rublee, Mr. Senator Henri Berenice, French vice-chair| committee. >se of the conference js what action to take the announcement that Government has re} blank to negotiate with "because Roosevelt's Iress contained severe I the Reich." The refusiveyed to the officials imittee by the British ^ffice which received the Bn from its Berlin emwhich the Reich made decision. ny's decision is believed ised on President Roose^ugust 18th speech at University, Canada, in said: "We seek to be ^usly fair and helpful not lour relations with each &ut each of us at home in itions with our own people. 8 is one process which we cannot change and probiight not to change. This is keling which ordinary men lomen have about events [they can understand.

No coun^ere thought is free can prevcry fireside and home with[borders from considering the Dee for itself and rendering fn verdict; and the sum total |ese conclusions of educated and women will, in the long [become the national verdict." ^E INSISTS ON JHURCH RIGHtS pie, (WNS)—Racism is defiwithin the spiritual province he Catholic Church, Pope Pius a group of Catholic Action hbers from France. Replying the Fascist press, which had I racism should not concern I church, the Pope said that "by t broad improper word is unstood something so greatly hull it cannot be termed foreign philosophy or religion in which ids faith teaches us how one Bid rightly believe and think." JEWISH ALMANAC TO BE PUBLISHED Philadelphia, (WNS)—A comprehensive index of the 40 volumes of the American Jewish Year Book the "Jewish World Almanac," will be one of the principal features of Volume 40, which will be published on September 15th by the Jewish Publication Society of America. Other important articles are a biography of the late Felix M. Warburg by Dr. Cyrus Adler, a biography of the late Dr. H. Pereira Mendes by Rabbi David de Sola Pool, and an analysis of Jewish statistics in the United States from 1850 to 1937 by Dr. H. S. Linfield. The volume will also contain the 50th annual report of the Jewish Publication Society and the 31st annual report of the American Jewish Committee, according to an announcement by Maurice Jacobs, executive secretary of the Society. Harrv Schneiderman is editor of the Year Book. USSISHKIN IS HONORED 8Y ALL Jerusalem, (WNS Palcor Agency)—AH parties and central national institutions and organizations in Palestine joined in expressing the tribute of the Yishub to Menahem M. Ussishkin on the occasion of the celebration of the seventy-fifth birthday of the oldest living founder of Zionism and President of the Jewish National Fund. The birthday message published by the Jewish community of Palestine hailsthe pioneer Zionist leader as "an inspiring symbol of national heroism, whose life has ben the loftiest expression of Zionist realization and activity." A jubilee mass meeting was held in honor of Mr. Ussishkin who is now abroad. A staunch fighter for Zionist ideals, years before the convocation of the First Zionist Congress in Basle in 1897, Ussishkin has been in the forefront of iZonist leadership for more than half a century and was the foremost figure in the development of the Zionist movement in his native Russia. Since 1923 he has been President of the Jewish National Fund. Hs influence has been felt in every decisive chapter in Zionist history during the past four decades, beginning with the historic Uganda issue at the beginning of the century in which he was the most vigorous factor in the opposition to the establishment of a Jewish homeland in South Africa. In 1919 Ussishkin was named head of the Zionist Executive in Palestine. His leonine head and firm, vigorous manner have on occasion evoked the label of "the iron man of Zionism." During the recent World Zionist Congress which debated the issue of partition and the establishment of the Jewish State, Ussishkin was the most outspoken leader of the "Neinsager" (the nay-sayers to partition.) JEWISH OFFICERS RESIGN RANKS Rome, (WNS)—Preferring dignified resignation to enforced ouster, 60 high-ranking Jewish officers in the Italian army, including General Mario Ottlenghi, a kinsman of the general of the same name who was minister of war at the turn of the century, resigned from the army en masse because of Italy's new racial program. General Ottolenghi is a close personal friend of IKing Victor Emanuel. It is reported that Prem ; er Mussolini is urging the Jewish officers to recall their resignations because of the bad impression they would create in military circles. Some observers here believe that the war office will arrange that the Jewish officers be retired on full pay and thus avoid having them resign while at the same time eliminating Jews from the h'gh army command. Meanwhile, it is reported that considerable numbers of Jews are preparing to leave Italy in fear of further anti-Semitic measures. Sales of Jewish property are increasingly daily. A censorship on mail written by Jews has been instituted. Leaders of the Jewish community in Milan will be arrested shortly, the press reports, on the ground that they have alledgedly encouraged the illegal entry of Jewish refugees. Speedy action to expel Jewish lawyers from the Italian bar was foreshadowed when the Fascist Party, acting on the request of the Union of Italian Barristers, appointed a special commission to determine how Jewish attorneys may be excluded. Roberto Farinacci, Italy's number one anti-Semite, is chairman of the commission. It is estimated that there are approximately 800 Jewish lawyers in Italy. New York, (WNS)—Luigi Antonini, New York State chairman of the American Labor Party anil vice-president of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union, told a mass-meeting of Italian needle workers that Italy's racial and anti-Semitic policy was "an artificial importation from Nazi. Germany." The country's foremost Italian labor leader, sounded a warning that attacks against minorities abroad might boomerang against Italians and Germans here. NOTED LEADER IS CANDIDATE Montreal, (WNS)—Peter Bercovitch, Jewish member of the Quebec Provincial Legislature since 1916, is slated to succeed the late Samuel W. Jacobs as member of the Canadian House of Commons from the St. Lawrence Cartier divir'on in Montreal. Mr. Bercovitch has already announced his candidacy, and political observers regard his election as a certainty in view of the predominantly Jewish character of the electorate in that district. A native of Montreal, Bercovitrh has served seven consecutive terms ; n the Quebec legislature. He is a former president of the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society of Canada. 11! ERITH WILL CHURCHES URGED TUNE IN SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:06 The Jtwiih Floridian will again present another In its series of weekly broadcasts this comingSunday morningorer Station WKAT (1500 k. o.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's fall of interesting news and comments and mnsic. Philadelphia—The churchos of America were urged to enter the matrimonial agency f'ild, following an expose by a lo-al newspaper of a "marriage-by-mail" business. The suggestion was advanced by the Rev. D. Wilmot Gateson, rector of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the Savior, who recently established a non-sectar'an "Body, Mind and Soul" Clinic here which has met with considerable success. "Matrimonial agencies of a high soc'-al order are needed, provided they can be conducted by socially minded people who properly supervise every phase of the activities of the organizations," he said. Th"re are many good and worthy people who genuinely need the services of such agene'es. They are the men and women who have not won mates on their own initiative, "Many of the people who need these services would make fine mates. They may not have what superficial people call attractiveness, but they have the essent'al elements of faithfulness, loyalty and devotion so much needed in marriage. The very existence of racketeering marriage agencies proves that a real need for legitimate matrimon ; al agencies exists. We must satisfy it. I believe that some workable solution could be provided through such an excellent institution as the Marrriage Council Bureau in cooperation with the churches. "My church is a matrimonial agency—and I believe a church should be. I have a standing agreement with my young members to marry them without a fee if they have met in the church and plan to be married in the church. There is no reason why a decent, honest, properly supervised matrimonial agency should not work and work well—but it certainly should not be run for profit." Plans announced for the second annual convention of the Florida Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges to be held at the George Washington Hotel next Sunday and Monday, September 4th and 5th, include business sessions and gala entertainment for the delegates and guests. Registration of the delegates will begin at 10:00 o'clock Sunday morning at the George Washington Hotel, West Palm Beach, which will be headquarters for the Convention. Business sessi o n s will beg'n at 11:00 o'clock to be followed by a joint luncheon for delegates, their wives and guests at 12:30 at the George Wash'ngton Hotel. In the afternoon a business session will be held and the ladies will be taken on a motorcade throughout the Palm Beach area to be followed by "open bar" late in the afternoon. Sunday night a banquet and dance will be tendered to the delegates and guests at the hotel with Mr. Harry Adelberg president of District Lodge of the Fifth District, and Mr. Pat Cannon, congressional nominee of this area as the principal speakers. A splendid program of entertainment has been arranged. Monday morning business sessions of the convention will continue and the ladies will be the guests of the host Lodge and the Ladies Auxiliary of the West Palm Beach Lodge at a splash party in the Lido Pool in Palm Beach to be followed by a luncheon at the Dixie Court Hotel. Monday afternoon the business sessions of the Convention will be concluded. According to indications several hundred delegates from the various Iyodges of the State will attend to discuss student union activities, anti-Defamation work, membership problems, and proposed legislative action to be presented to the coming Florida Legislature. YJ.HJJIIfS TOURNAMENT The diamondball team of the Y. M. H. A., was the victor in the finals of the Daily News golden ball tournament last Wednesday night at Miami Field when in the presence of several thousand fans it defeated the team of the Pan American Airways 5 to 2.

Since Dr. Pinsker published his famous Auto-Emancipation it has cast a magic spell upon the hearts and minds of the most devoted and loyal of our people. How to go about it? The answer is Zion. The path to AutoEmancipation of the Jewish people is the path that leads to Zon, to a self-governing Jewish community in Palestine. Zionism, therefore appeared on the scene of Jewish life as the practical applcation of j the principle of Auto-Emancipa' tion. Mi??

H. SIMONS Cere Ackerman Ins. Agency 1015 Seybold Bldg. Phone 2-3151 L ACT OF JEW Detroit, (WNS)—In a front page editorial in English entitled "Mr. Leve Teaches the Bund," the Detroit Sonntagsblatt der Abendpost, Detroit German-language paper, hails Samuel J. Leve, chairman of the convention committee of the Jew-'nh War Veterans, for withdrawing from the race for the city council in favor of John W. Smith, former mayor and postmaster, who has long been prominent in German-American circles. The German-language paper declares that Mr. Leve's withdrawal "is additional proof, if any were reeded, of his wholesome Americanism," and "commends to the attention of the eastern seaboard's Bund (Nati German American Bund) and other cleavage-creating: forces, the salutary forces motivating Mr. Leve's withdrawal." Mr. Leve announced his withdrawal in a statement declaring "Mr. Smith is able and more experienced in councilmanic duties than I and I think he could serve the city more efficiently." The Sonntagsblatt said that "for sheer unselfishness, that state m e n t -tands apart." It is amazing to what lengths the Hitlerites go to befog the minds of their unfortunate fellow countrymen. Not content with having destroyed the Masonic Lodges in Germany and having degraded their members, they would further belittle the Fraternity in the opinion of their people by resorting to pure fabrication. The following item from an unnamed German newspaper is a case in point: "The American Masonic Lodge 'Chicago Illinois, has resolved to erect on a square or in a park of Chicago a monument 'in honor of all brethren of the whole world who have died for Freemasonry.' As the government of the City of Chicago consists largely of Freemasons, it gave its consent. The Freemasons figure on raising at least a million dollars, especially as the Jewish banks have pledged their support. If the fellows of the apron and the trowel think they must in this manner restore their badly damaged reputation, we cannot do anything to prevent them. They have, by their deeds, erected for themselves in other parts of the world a monument which, while not beautiful, is more enduring than the stone which is to be misused in Chicago. If we may offer a suggestion, we would make one with regard to the form of the monument: a pavilion won't do; they had better build a replica of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, in order that the Gentiles among the brethren may also have a place of pilgrimage." There is no American Masonic Lodge in the State of Illinois or elsewhere known as the "ChicagoIllinois" Lodge. Like the above reference the statement that "the Government of the City of Chicago consists largely of Freemasons" is fallacious. The mayor of Chicago and many ranking officials of that metropolis are Roman Catholics. Of course, German papers are expected to publish anything suggested or submitted by the Hitlerites, and there is never any recourse to facts to substantiate the truth or falsity of a statement, so the Germans are in a worse predicament on any question than "The Three Blind Mice." — (Scottish Rite News Bureau) TUN NOTES Miss Adeline Fleiehman has gone to Atlantic City where she will be the guest of relatives at the Lenox Hotel, Atlantic Avenue.

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 2, 1938 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN PAGE FIVE THE WORLD'S WINDOW -By LUDWIQ LEWISOHNThe Nation (Number of August 20th carries a featured editorial with the caption: Anti-Semitism is here. The Nation sincerely dislikes anti-Semitism and despises it as both undemocratic and vulgar. AH the editors have Jewish friends and associates, most of them, if no* *H them, shadow Jews without Jewish knowledge, Jewish bindings, with Jewish backgrounds carefully repressed, with Jewish aspirations carefully merged in some general hope which does not exist. This being so, it follows that the Nation's sincere alarm and solicitude issue is no insight and is no helpfulness. Here is the gist of the editor's argument. "Race prejudice is a by-product of industrial and political reaction." Now it can be truly said that raca-prejudice is intensified by industrial and political reaction. But the liberals and radicals who pretend to themselves that the sources of race-prejudice are no deeper, that race-prejudice is not pre-existent to any given industrial or political situation, are not only doing the Jewish people no good, but may easily do them harm. Let us illustrate. The Nation says: conservative Jews are in an ugly dilemma. Truth. Conservative Jews cannot anywhere in the world (including America) freely serve their interests and convictions because all conservative parties everywhere (including America) are more or less anti-Semitic. Thence the Nation draws the argument that all Jews must be left-swingers of some kind and must not object to the conspicuous ness of Jewish radicals etc. Now this is an excessively silly and dangerous argument. For the truth is that the false and deadly slander of Jewry's trying to tear down Western civilization should not and need not be intensified by frivolous individual acts and gestures and that the tragedy of the Jew of the diaspora as a political being lies fathoms deeper than the editors of the Nation conceive. By nature, tradition, training, unspoiled instinct the Jew is a conservor of the historic goods of civilization. Yet he dare not and cannot be a conservative. By nature the Jew is passionately concerned for the oppressed and down trodden. Yet the radicalism of this age, which the Jew did not make—for Karl Marx was a reneKnde afflicted with self-hatred— forces the Jew into alien and dangerous ideologies, for the propagation of which he is then crucified. Thus the diaspora Jew cannot be true to himself whatever political faith he embraces. He is, whether as conservative or as radical, not his own man, not a creature being what he was meant to be, but the product of majority pressure—the product of powerlessness or fear. From this set of damnable circumstances arises the pitiful phenomenon of the Jewish bourgeois not wholly displeased at the theoretical radicalism of some of his sons and daughters, because expropriation by a Socialist state is no immediate danger and he sillily hopes that a dose (not too large) of radicalism may ward off Fascism, of which he is, quite rightly, in deadly terror. In other words, the Jew In the diaspora to in a false position—a TTUumL hopelessly, pitifully, monstrously false position, whatever he is, whatever he does. It is on old, old story which evidently the editors of the Nation have never heard. The conservatism of the world to not the Jew's conservatism; the radicalism of the world is not the Jew's radicalism. And this situation is unendurably intensified in this age of doctrines gone mad. Nothing can be more un-Jewish (or un-Christian for that matter) than either Fascism or Communism. The Jew who approaches either is a crippled and perverted creature, like the Jew who is "doggy" or "horsey" out of assimilatory swank. He is lost to himself, to his people, to the world. Truly and correctly the Nation ends with the observation that "the future of the Jew in America is tied tht to the future of Democracy." Only one could wish that the lovers of democracy, such as the editors of the Nation, had a deeper and subtler insight into the difficulties of the Jew and would conceive democracy in terms that included the character of the Jew (or any other racial and cultural minority) as such, in his own nature, as a contributor to cultural political processes and not as one for whose absorption by such processes they hoped and prayed. TLttoA. By HARRY SCHWARTZ STAG SMOKER THIS WEDNESDAY MEN— On Wednesday, September 7th. the Y. M. H. A. will conduct a stag smoker for members and guests.

NAZI EMBLEMS LOSE JOBS Denver, (WNS)— Because they pleaded guilty to drawing swastikas on West Colfax Avenue, one of Denver's principal streets, two WPA workers supposedly engaged in painting traffic warning signs on pavements, were dismissed. The. two workers, Eugene P. Harvey and Elmer Hackmeister. admitted they drew the Nazi emblems, but said they meant no harm. Captain James J. Pitt, chief of the police traffic bureau, quoted Harvey as saying: "We had been painting traffic signs on the pavement and fcad finished the job. We sat on the curb waiting for a truck to come along to take us to another job. We got to arguing about the right way to draw the Nazi swastika—that is all there is to it." One swastika had the words "Hitler—Bund is here" under it. Captain Pitt said he did not believe either man was a member of the Nazi Bund. DOUBLE BARRELED TREAT LABOR DAY, SEPTEMBER 5 ed by Miss Ray Shochet during his absence.

SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT From present indications, the coming season promises to be a busy one for our "Y." In order to accommodate the many visitors who will be with us, our Executive Director is preparing a directory of available rooms and board. We have received several inquiries for apartments from our Northern friends, and we feel it would be showing a spirit of hospitality if we could advise strangers, within our midst, where they may rest their weary bones. If you have any rooms or apartments to rent, or, if you can furnish table board, see the Executive Director and register. Many of our unemployed members as well as other Jewish Miami residents, have consulted Mr. Maurice Grossman, our Executive Director about obtaining work for them. It would be a splendid thing if we could place some of these men and women and for that reason a Social Service Department has been established. If you wish to employ any help, of any nature whatsoever please phone Mr. Grossman at the "Y" 3-4012. Let's make this a real Social Service—in the fullest sense of the word.

W. 1st Street Offle* MMM 1-14M Home Phone 2-217* LOUIS HAYMAN, Enc. Seo. 149 N. W. 5th Street Phone 2-5574 qONGREGATJONAL DINNER AND MEETING It is the policy of the president and Board of Directors to combine as often as possible, congregational dinners and meetings in order to stimulate active participation in the affairs of the congregation. The first in a series of such meetings will take place Sunday evening, September 11th at 7:00 o'clock honoring the charter members and pioneers of Beth David Congregation. We trust that every member and his wife will be present. The dinner will be prepared and served by the members of the Sisterhood at no charge to our members and wives. This is the congregation's treat. Immediately following the dinner a brief meeting will take place and a cultural program will be presented by Mr. Isidor Cohen who will serve as toastmaster and chairman. We are positive that the auditorium will be filled to capacity and therefore ask the members to come early. Don't forget Sunday, September 11th at 7:00 p. m. XXX RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION We ask all parents to realize that the doors of our Hebrew School have been open all summer and will continue to be open. Even at this late summer date, you can still send your children to be instructed, so as to prepare them for the Fall term. A new curriculum and program will be inst-i tuted for the coming semester for both Talmud Torah and SundaySchool. Those who are interested in joining our faculty will please notify the Rabbi or Mrs. Meyer Schwartz, superintendent. A meeting will take place shorthand appointments will be made, so please notify us at once before it is too late. XXX HIGH HOLIDAY PROGRAM A seating committee is in session at the synagogue to take care of the needs of our members and friends. In order to avoid difficulties, please contact Mr. Mendel Scheinberg and secure your seats now. The synagogue is being redecorated and proper ventilation will be provided due to the devotion of one of our faithful members who is donating the facilities. The proper announcement will be made in an early issue of the Floridian. Make your reservations now! xxx A WORD TO THE WISE During the past five or six years we have noticed a tendency on the part of some of the lay leaders to garb themselves in the hollowneas of professional egotism—the "Know Alls." The spiritual leader, true and sincere to his calling, serving his congregation and community faithfully, never knows the truth when any disputes his right to speak his thoughts and proclaim his views. People have often disagreed with him, that is their right. But more often he does not agree with his people and never does he hesitate to speak his mind. We do so now with the hope of rc-awakening a true Jewish spirit, for we have able people among Miami laity who do not and will not respond to the call of Jewry, the call of the community, unless they would find that it "pays." We have people in our midst who profess allegiance to Judaism, but who do not live by their professions. We have people who do not think of Judaism beyond their convenience and they place their convenience above the mandates of their Judaism. If they are hurt then it is a "Chillul Hashem" otherwise let the Rabbis worry. If they cast aspersions by word or action, and hurt their co-religionists, it is for "Kiddush Hashem" never mind that they trample upon the principles and ideals which Rabbis uphold. We have people who do shirk responsibilities, people who are painfully ungenerous and extremely irresponsible rebounding to the discredit of the entire Jewish community. These things are true and we say to you, our people, that it is this that is a painful and heart-corroding experience. Was there any reason under the sun for a Jewish organization to permit and be silent when its cohorts violated flagrantly a Jewish law and proceeded to "play ball" last Friday night on the Holy Sabbath of our people? Is it proper for some professional men by their actions to permit a vicious (even if not too wellfounded) rumor to seep into our Jewish communal life questioning their integrity and redounding to our discredit? By all that is sacred, by all that is fine and ennobling in life, do not sneer, at this earnest and passionate plea—to be cautious and "occasionally" bear in mind that you are responsible for the Great Cause and Destiny of Israel and that that Cause and Destiny dare not fail! xxx MAZEL TOV Our felicitations to Mr. and Mrs. Irving Spector and to the grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Spector, at the birth of an infant son. May he grow up "Li-Torah, LiChupah Uli-Maasim Tovim." Y. M. H. I. NOTES Y. M. H. A. COPS GOLDENBALL CHAMPIONSHIP 5-2 Before a crowd of approximately 3,000 enthusiastic ball fans assembled at Miami Field Wednesday night the Y. M. H. A. diamondball team playing heads-up ball behind the excellent pitching of Jimmy Hershey defeated the Pan American Airways team 5 to 2. Two fielding gems made by our star first baseman, Nat Blumberg and a spectacular shoe string catch by Davis Lackawitz pulled Jimmy out of several tight spots. The Gilman Brothers, Ralph and Benny played their usual sparkling game and Bernie Frank covered third base as only he can. Leo Lipowsky during the tournament, was the leading batsman with a batting mark of 555. Art Kahn and Izzy Mayers covering short and second respectively done themselves proud during the tourney. The catching of Harry Golden played an important part in the victory. The two co-managers of the team, Dr. Barney Weinkle and Aaron Weinkle were important factors. Did you know that the "Y" made a total of 48 hits to their opponents 40 arid that the last four games won by the "Y" they were outhit 30 to 18. That requires heads-up ball and that's what won the championship. We express our sincere thanks to Luther Voltz, Carl Dillon and Ernie Seiler for the splendid reREV. MOSES TEITELBAUM Renowned Cantor, posses ring splendid tenor voice, formerly of Borough Park, desires position for High Holy Days. Excellent references. ADDRESS 1329 E. First Ave. HIALEAH, FLA.

SEPTEMBER 2, 1938 VOLUME 11.—NUMBER 34. Frank, Open and Above Board For a number of years B'nai B'rith and its laudable purposes were practically unknown in Florida. There were sporadic attempts to reorganize the Lodges in the State for many years but nothing much came of it. When Mr. Hyman Jacobs of Atlanta became one of the District's officers, he, coming to the realization that much could be done in Florida, devoted himself assiduously to the task. Months of effort resulted in his enlisting the aid of some of Miami's leading Jewish communal leaders and led to the rehabilitation of the Miami Lodge. Today the Miami Lodge is close to the five hundred membership mark and has set for itself the goal of one thousand members during 1939. A little more than a year ago the Florida State Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges was organized. There was much talking and a lot of promising. The field for fruitful accomplishment was indeed fertile, if there were men who would seed and work the field. There was and still is plenty of work in the field of educational work among the Jewish students in the various state colleges; the anti-Defamation work is growing larger each and every day. Yet, if we are to be frank, open and above board, the answer to the query. "What has the State Federation accomplished?, must and will be "Absolutely nothing." The time has come when the delegates to the State Federation must be men enough to face the facts. Either we get to work and accomplish something or disband the organization. That something can be done has been amply proven by the work of the anti-Defamation committee in Miami. That work can be done if it is attempted was shown 1 recently in the University of Miami. That Lodges can be kept alive and not be permitted to die down for lack of interest has beeniproven beyond peradventure of doubt by the Miami Lodge. The members of the Miami Lodge are not paragons of virWhy 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 i 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 The Jew puts it very poignantly "Auf'n ganov brent der hitel;" the colloquial phrase calls it "guilty conscience." In the past several weeks this column has carried comments on matters affecting particular people and particular occurrences. Yet there have been a number of calls from those who thought the particular comment applied directly to them. As a matter of fact it concerned others. However, if these comments of your humble scrivener will put people on notice and make them sit up and think; it's just fine and dandy. Our heart goes out to those of the good men and women of this community who want a right wronged. When an injustice is done to a particular individual, no matter how wrong, it does not necessarily become a matter of public interest, and certainly not a "Jewish" matter. Public opinion may become an important factor in such a case if properly applied. This should be a hint to the wise. Our hats off to those responsible for the splendid work now being carried on by the Miami Section of the National Council of Jewish Women in its immigration endeavors. What a lesson in life one can obtain by just looking on. Not that these good women will ever receive thanks. Their only reward will be the knowledge of a work well done. A lesson In communal understanding was shown last Sunday night when three separate affairs were run at the same time, and neither was a real success though each was a deserving cause. Cooperation must be the keynote or all will suffer. If our good folks would learn that they must take an interest in things Jewish during their life, the unpleasantness that arises when a death occurs would perhaps not occur. Too many deem it their duty to forget their Jewishness except when emergencies arise. Let's decide to try and avoid mistakes on the part of organization so that flagrant violations need not happen. Most of this uncalled for behavior is not recause of wanting to do wrong but because of simple ignorance of proper attitudes and actions. Let's aid the organization so that it need not again err. I'm just wondering if those who bellow in private will even whisper in public. That applies to many of the leaders of this community who spend valuable time POPE PIUS (Religious News Service) London—The storm of insults and calumny against the Church and against the Pope, in Germany, have reached an unparalleled pitch of ferocity and venom the Catholic Herald charges. Official newspapers such as the Volkischer Beobachter combine with the lowest "rags" in a campaign aga : nst the Pope and all that Catholics hold sacred, it is declared. This is said to be the German reply to the Pope's latest allocution against exaggerated racialism and nationalism. Some of the accusatiins made' in recent weeks are:— "The Pope is paid by the Jews for his condemnation of racialism. "He is an old fool who does not know what he is talking about. "He is working for Bolshevism. "He wants to make the Italian people rebel against the Fascist regime. "He is not even approved in his attitude by his own Hierarchy. "He wants to save the existence of Catholic Action, which is a purely political institution." The organ of the S. S. storm troops in Das Schwarze Korps, for which Heinrich Himmler. supreme head of the German police is responsible has, says the Catholic Herald's German correspondent, once more beaten all records j for obscenity. One of the editors, who writes gossip in Berlin dialect, talked about the Euchariatic World Congress in what were probably the most sacrilegious terms that have ever been used in any German anti-clerical publication, it is charged. decrying things in private, but keep their mouths shut when there is an opportunity to impress the general public. Wondering how many of you good folks will be buncoed by those claiming to represent the people when actually they're Jews only on the eve of elections or when they need you for a favor. Can't believe that you good people can forget that the Jewish Floridian has been and will continue to be the only paper that carries your news fifty-two weeks a year and asks nothing but your cooperation in return for the ser-1 vice given you. How many of you members of B'nai B'rith and others of the Jewish citizenry will be on hand to go for the "knaydlach" at the West Palm Beach Convention, but will forget the "Haggada" when it comes to the concrete work needed to help, not the officials, but YOURSELF. tue, masters of the impossible or possessed of superhuman powers. They have been taught the lesson of application to a worth while purpose. If the West Palm Beach convention is to accomplish anything at all, it must be done in the spirit of the approaching penitential days We must admit our faults and try to remedy them for the future. Those aspiring to office should be honest with themselves and decline unless they are able, willing and qualified to do the work required of them. This convention and its actions, undominated and uninfluenced by petty sectional jealousies. untrammelled by selfish desires for honors, will decide the future of the Florida Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges. Let us so act that the future will be one of achievement, not of failure. AN OPEN LETTER BY THE RABBINICAL ASSOCIATION OF GREATER MIAMI At this time of the year when Jews of all shades of religious belief and interest feel the spirit of Teshuva, our repentance and return to their religion, in many a Jewish community individuals try to capitalize on religion. The synagogue, the spiritual and cultural, historic and religious center of a Jewish community, finds this the best time to gather the.funds to keep it open throughout the year. Through the sale of Holy Day tickets, appeal for synagogue membership, inquiry i|ito children's Jewish education and adults communal participation, at this time, a great impetus towards the strengthening of communal consciousness and unity, and of Jewish education is aroused. The activity of the synagogue and temple begun at the end of the Jewish year ie the beginning for a whole New Year's progress. Those irresponsible and wilfully blind individuals who, refusing to see all this, offer Jews a place of worship for the H-'gh Holy Days pocketing the resulting collection for their own selves, thereby rob the synagogue of its rightful income, and mark, not the beginning, but the end of Jewish integration, consciousness and communal progress. i We. the Rabbis of Greater Miami, condemn most strongly all such individuals who would turn a hotel, a hall or a private home into a house of worship for their personal aggrandizement. We condemn such places as leading to the breakdown of Jewish morale. We condemn those who, not alone do not help the synagogue and temple in their sacred, year-round work by their presence and support during the High Holy Days but even destroy their power r*V attending services held at "mushroom synagogues" run for personal profit. We hope that no such evil will arise in our community this year or any year, that no responsible Jew will help make a racket of our religion by patronizing such places should they seek to enter our community. We welcome every Jew to our services at the various synagogues and temples in our community. We pray to God to grant every Jew a spiritually happy and prosperous New Year. RABBINICAL ASSOCIATION OF GREATER MIAMI. SOCIETY JUNIOR HADASSAH HEARS TALK A most interesting meeting of Junior Hadassah toik place last Monday evening at the home of Mrs. Edward Barmen. After a" short busines.5 meeting, Hadassah members and their friends were treated to a colorful and vital talk by Miss Sarah Lightmau, who has recently returned from Palestine. Mias Lightman, rn delightful fashion, held her audience in rapt attention by her picturixation of the life and customs of the people in the Holy Land, and the great work which is being donethere by Hadassah. Miss Lightman, who has spent two and a half years in Palestine, has traveled extensively over that country and is enthusiastic in her praise of the developments which have takea place there. Refreshments were served by the hostess at the conclusion of the evening.
