FRIDAY, SEPT. 16, 1938 PRICE FIVE CENTS NOTABLES PHY TRIBUTETDADLER Woods Hole, Mass., (WNS)— President Franklin D. Roosevelt heads the roster of hundreds of outstanding: public figures whose tributes to Dr. Cyrus Adler on his 75th birthday, w^re, contained in a testimonial volume presented to him here by a small deputation of Jewish leaders from New York and Boston. The presentation was made at Dr. Adler's summer home because of his aversion to any public manifestation. The tributes were assembled by a committee headed by Lewis J. Strauss. Harry Srhneiderman, assistant secretary of the American Jewish Committee, of which Dr. Adler is president, was delegated by the testimonial committee to present the volume to Dr. Adler. Mr. Schneiderman, who succeeded Dr. Adler as editor of the Jewish Yearbook in 1918, has been a close associate of Dr. Adler for many years. The tributes in the testimonial volume include messages from every state in the Union as well as foreign countries. Among them is one from Tom English, mayor of Van Buren, Arkansas, where Dr. Adler was born on September 13, 1863. There are also messages from Mayor La Guardia of New York and Mayor Wilson of Philadelphia, cities in which Dr. Adler has been living most of his life. BROUN ASSAILS "SHA-SHA" POLICY New York, (WNS)—Declaring that "the hush-hush policy in regard to anti-Semitism in America has failed dismally," Heywood Broon, in his syndicated column, "It Seems to Me," asserted that "this policy has fostered prejudice instead of abating it." Broun said "I think that the outright antiSemitism of the German-American Bund is less dangerous than that (if those who say piously, 'I have no prejud.-e.Twt keep their fingers crossed. Before a proper fight for American freedom and tolerance can be made we must turn on the light. It will be highly salutary to smoke out the hidden anti-Semites." Referring to reports that antiJewish feeling in the United States will be intensified if President Roosevelt nominates Felix Frankfurter to the vacancy on the United States Supreme Court, Broun said "I hope the President submits his name and that Frankfurter will consent to face the arrows. The issue which already has been raised, even in anticipation, is extraneous. But it also happens to be one of the vital problems which America must solve out in the open if we are to stand as a citadel against the tide of Fascism." Synagogues Offer Bingo Substitute Cincinnati, (WNS) — Whether the hot controversy of bingo in the synagogue had anything to do with it or not, hasn't been divulged, but "Quotorah," the new children's game seems to be the ultimate synthesis of bingo and religion. Attractively printed and boxed, and sub-titled "The Bible Quotation Game," "Quotorah" was devised by Mabel H. Meyer and is suitable for playtime in the religious school or home. The only similarity between this new game and bingo is that both are played on a card which is covered with smaller pasteboards by the player. Instead of dull numbers, however. "Quotorah" uses tiny pasteboards bearing half a verse from the Bible. The other half appears on one of the cards held by the players. L IS RECALLED Boston, (WNS)—Giude Segre, for the last three years Italy's consul-general in Boston, has been recalled because he's a Jew. Segre, who is a member of economic affairs is in the Italian Foreign Ministry. Segre's recall is part of the sweeping extension of the antiJewish policy to the diplomatic and consular corps. Rome, (WNS)—The Lloyd Triestine, the Italian steamship line that became rich carrying Jewish passngers to Palestine, has dismissed all its Jewish employes. It is also stated that the line's ships have closed their synagogues. Catholic Booklet Is Best Seller St. Louis—A pamphlet by a Catholic priest which refutes false charges against the Jews and calls upon people of all faiths to fight extreme nationalism is rapidly becoming the best-selling pamphlet of the year. The pamphlet is entitled, "Why are Jews Perse-uted?" and its author is Father Joseph N. Moody, professor of Medieval and Modern European History at Cathedral College, New York City. Over 40,000 copies have been sold in the three months ,inre publication. Protesta n t, Catholic and Jewish organizations have aided in its distributon. The pamphlet, which is published by the Queen's Work here and bears the imprmatur of Archbishop Glennon of St. Louis, emphasizes the need for a united front of the religious forces against anti-Semitism. Father Moody points out that "Nationalism has reached a point in its evolution in which it is equally dangerous to the Jewish and the Christian concept of life, and both these international religions are equally hated for the same reasons by fanatical patriots of the post-war period." LEAGUE TO ACT ON REFUGEES Geneva, (WNS)—The question of large scale agricultural immigration to South America will be taken up by the League of Nations Assembly for the first time, it was announced officially as the 19th meeting of the Assembly got under way here. A permanent international committee on migration for settlement, consisting of representatives of interested countries as experts is to be created. It will be empowered to deal not only with technical problems but also with questions concerning the possibility of international financial arrangements to support migration. W. J. Jordan of New Zealand, acting president of the League Council, opened the Assembly meeting with an expression of gratitude to President Roosevelt for his "practical interest" in helping refugees. Prom is i n g I-eague support for Roosevelt's efforts on behalf of refugees, Jordan said "every nation represented here has viewed with gratitude the practical interest shown by President Roosevelt in the question of refugees. The League surely wishes to do what lies in its power to assist the work of rescue. Detractors of the League will not fail to remark that Geneva was not the scene of these events. This prospect will not trouble anyone in this Assembly, where we are all agreed that the League is well served by whatever serves peace and cooperation by acts of good faith and neighborly conduct." Palcor Agency reported that the Mandates Commission's report on Palestine will probably be placed before the. League Council this week when Pierre Orts of Belgium, chairman of the Commission, presents the find'ngs of that body's investigation of the workings of the Palestine Mandate. Great Britain is expected to submit a written report answering the criticism by the Mandates Commission of British policy. Geneva, (WNS)—A new intergovernmental committee on refugee aid to supplant the work of the agency created at the Evian conference will be proposed to the league of Nations Council, now in session here, according to Secretary-General Joseph C. Avenol. Avenol said the new committee was necessary because the one established at Evian is limited in its TUNE IN SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:0* The Jewish Floridian will again present another in its series of weekly broadcasts this coming Sunday morning orer Station WKAT (1800 k. o.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's full of interesting news and comments and music. Secretary Ickes Urges Social Betterment Putin-Bay, Ohio, (WNS)—The United States and Canada "have learned that ideas and accomplishments are neither Catholic nor Protestant, black nor white, socalled Aryan nor Jewish" and "each has drawn strength and vitality from the diverse origins and talents of its people," Secretary of the Interior Harold E. Ickes declared in dedicating a monument here to Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry on the 125th anniversary of his winning of the Battle of Lake Erie. Ickes said "the best way to protect ourselves against Communism or Fascism is to sterilize our social soil so that these growths cannot take root, and the best way to do th : s is to provide for our citizens such a satisfactory social and economic lot that they will have no desire to experiment with alien systems that are repugnant to our institutions." BRITISH JEWS BOYCOTT ITALY London, (WNS)Brushing aside threats of reprisals against Italian Jews if Jews abroad embarked on a boycott of Italian goods and shipping, the Jewish Peoples Council Against Fascism and Anti-Semitism, took steps to launch an antiItalian boycott when it adopted a resolution declaring that "in the event the Italian government pursues its present course, boycotting of Italian goods is the only method to implement protest." The Council made it clear, however, that it would not begin a boycott alone, declaring "such a step will be taken in conjunction with other Jewish bodies, to which end the Council is taking appropriate steps." It is understood that the Board of Deputies of British Jews is being consulted. The first actual boycott of Italian goods was credited to the Federated Burial Society, whjch instructed its members that the use of Italian marble in Jewish cemeteries is forbidden after September 9th "until the inhuman persecution of the Jewish people in Italy ceases." Reports reching here from Cairo and Alexandria state that the 10,000 Italian Jews in Egypt, who have been ultra-Fascist in their sympathies, are preparing to boycott Italian merchandise. scope to refugees from Germany and Austria. League delegates have been discussing ways and means of extending aid to refugees from Italy. A plan to extend the League's refugee work to Italian Jews has been drafted by the Swiss delegation. The entire refugee question w'll be a major subject on the agenda of the meeting, and the hope is that the League can prevail upon countries that admitted refugees not to expel them until provision is made for their immigration to other lands. CHURCH GROUP ISSUES APPEAL Philadelphia—The Ame r i c a n Friends Service Committee and the Church of the Brethren are issuing an appeal to farmers to give part of their surplus wheat crop for child-feeding on both sides in the Spanish-Civil War. The appeal points out that some refugees in Spain arc rationed to a poor slice of bread a day. "It is a sad reflection on world conditions that millions of people should be starving for bread in a year of bumper wheat crops," the appeal states. "Here in America, we are embarrassed with an overproduction of wheat that forces our farmers to take low prices while in other parts of the world wheat cannot be bought at any price. Worth about 75c a bushel here, wheat has been costing us $1.47 in London and $2.25 by the time it is delivered in Spain. "In these days of reduced incomes it is good to be able to ask for something of which there is a super abundance. Appeals are being made through the churches but many individuals miss the message." Any farmer who can offer wheat or other non-perishable foo

Self-Respect With the Ro3h Hashono and the penitential days fast approaching it is high time that we pay heed to a problem, which in the final analysis, is nothing more or less than '' self-respect.'' Wil our children attend school on Rosh Hashono will they afford the non-Jew the opportunity that Jews have no regard for their own faith. Will Jews keep open on Rosh Hashono and Yom Kippur and provide our enemies and detractors with more grounds to accuse of an inveterate love for money and a disregard for our own traditions. Neither of these problems are purely religious. They involve something even greater. that of self-respect. What avail it if we gain everything and lose the most precious of all possessions, selfrespect. Will our children attend school on Rosh Hashono Italy and Japan and furnish the funds whereby our own fellow Jews and other human beings are to be destroyed. Are we to lose our self-respect? Are we to aid and abet in the establishment of mushroom synagogues and thus make a "business" out of that which should forever remain purely spiritual. Shall we lose our selfrespect? Shall we continue the practice of shopping for seats for the High Holy Days and not join a synagogue or temple, though this necessarily means the loss of our self-respect. Shall we forget those needy who are waiting on our contributions to afford them an opportunity of eking out a mere existence and thus fail to retain our self-respect. The answer should be very, very simple. We cannot afford to lose our self-respect. We shall retain it. 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 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 npw and gone tomorrow, money raising stunt. Phone 2-1141 and we will be Happy to Serve Y ou I WRITE AS I PLEASE Hats off to Harry Simonhoff who minced no words in upbraiding those who still think in the "escapist" manner. Jews must face the facts and act like men. We must fight those who desire to destroy us. Anti-Semitism has no place in America and the quicker we fight any and every manifestation of such un-American activities, out in the open, the better off we will be. BIBLE AND BINGO Of course, there is no getting away from the fact that we must recognize the all important fact that without a Jewish religion, there can be no Jewish people. If the adult hereabouts would recognize their duty to the synagogue and temple, there would be but little effort required to impress the youngsters in the schools and universities. Those who are now shopping for "bargains" in High Holy day accommodations would have far more self-respect if they would join the synagogue or temple and eventually do away with the necessity for "bargaining." Refugees are Shown As Self-Supporting Those who spread charges of "anti-Semitism" against any and every firm because of some personal reason must be made to realize that such action creates that very thing they object to. Rightfully it is the duty of every self-respecting Jew to exonerate every individual or firm who is guiltless. The charges which have been bandied about against the local S. H. Kress Company is an example. Charges of anti-Semitism and discrimination against Jews have been made. An examination discloses that these charges are untrue, and that Jews are employed with this firm. Let's, as real and true Jews, be fair with all. Let's set an example for others. Mushroom synagogues, no matter under what guise, have no place in this area. When synagogues become matters of "business" and are opened for the "busy" season only, it is high time that Rabbis and laymen speak out in terms that are unmistakable. These mushroom synagogues put the Jews in a horrible light. Religion should be and must be purely spiritual and represent the community, and not be an individual venture for gain. While the battle raged—and neither side scored—it seems the powers that be decided upon a sud" den climax, and God made a compromise with bingo. It all came about under the deft supervision of one Mabel H. Meyer, whose feminine sense of propriety had been for a long time in a quandry as to how to take bingo out of the temples. It seems that even as the Rabbi spoke his sermon, the very walls would echo in dull monotonous beat: "Bingo. play Play Bingo. Bingo in the basement. And as if himself under the mesmeric spell, the Reverend Doctor, on conclusion of the services, might add, "there will be bingo in the basement on Tuesday night at eight. ..." Everyone felt the menace, but of course it was left for a woman to combat. Thus, the news bulletin before us reads: "Whether the hot controversy over bingo in the synagogue had anything to do with it or not, hasn't been divulged. But "Quotorah," the new children's game just published by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, seems to be the ultimate synthesis of bingo and religion." Played on a card which is covered with smaller pasteboard disks by the player, from a distance it might easily pass as the real thing. On closer scrutiny, however, one finds that instead of numbers, on each of the smaller pasteboard cards is a quotation from the Bible. Hence, the name: "Quotorah." Pretty tricky, eh? Looks like bingo, is played like bingo, but isn't bingo at all. In reality, it might even be said God scored. In all seriousness, however, we think it's a swell idea. Since children want to play and since knowledge acquired in play is more easily and permanently retained, perhaps in this way Bible quotations may be learned and loved instead of mumbled by rote as a dose and forgotten. Perhaps in this way may be inspired a curiosity and further perusal of the Bible for study. New York, (WNS)— Not a single German refugee admitted to the United States has become a public charge, Dr. Joseph P. Chamberlain, chairman of the National Co-ordinat'ng Committee for Aid to Refugees and Emigrants Coming from Germany, declared at a press conference here. "By far the greater number of immigrants from Germany to the United States in the past four years have come to relatives who have furnished affidavits and assumed responsibility for them after their arrival, and carried that responsibility out so that the immigrants have been absorbed into the life of the country through the efforts of their relatives and friends," he said. The committee, Dr. Chamberlain said, does not provide funds to bring refugees here but seeks to facilitate the obtaining of loans to establish new enterprises and to assist the refugees to become self-supporting and to assimilate themselves into American life. He reported that one refugee had patented an ash-tray-match combination which is being manufactured in an Ohio factory employing 300 persons. Declaring that increasing Nazi pressure on the Jews was increasing the number of refugees to a point where the entire German Austrian quota of 27,370 would be filled, Dr. Chamberlain said that in the fiscal year ending June 30, 1938 there were 11,917 refugees, Jews and non-Jews, admitted to the United States, including 513 from Austria. The figures for the previous years were: 1934— 4,392; 1935—5-210; 193ft—6346; 1937—10895. MARCH 1939 SET FOR EXPULSION B'nai B'rith should be commended for the establishment of a reference library at the University of Miami on matters Jewish. If only the students at the University will use it, we shall have gained much. We wonder just how many of Greater Miami's Jewish residents will really show their interest in the plight of their fellow Jews and respond with a contribution to the Jewish Welfare Bureau's appeal for funds. TOSGANINI TO LEAVE ITALY So much can be done if the proper spirit is shown. If our local organizations will only cooperate we can accomplish much for the good of all. An example is an offer of cooperation by the local B'nai B'rith Lodge to the Freda Markowitz Post of the Jewish War Veterans in making the 1939 Convention of the Veterans a real success. We wonder if the local synagogues will extend a few minutes of their time during the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services to representatives of B'nai B'rith to explain local problems. LONDON, (WNS)— Arturo Toscanini, world-famed orchestra conductor, has decided to give up his city home in Milan and his seaside cottage at Lake Maggiore in Italy as a protest against Italian antiSemitism, according to a report in the London Evening Standard. Toscanini has long been an outspoken foe of Nazism and Fascism. He has refused to conduct at Salzburg since Austria went Nazi and even before that declined i to come to Salzburg unless he were assured his performances would not be broadcast to Germany. He was one of the founders of the Palestine Symphony Orchestra, composed largely of refugee musicians. Twice he went to Palestine to conduct that orchestra. Rome, (WNS)—The appointment of Fulvio Suvich, Italian ambassador to the United States, as head of the Reuniene of Adriatica of Trieste, one of Italy's two biggest insurance companies, in place of Arnaldo Frigessi di Rattalma, a Jew, who was forced to resign as a result of the new anti-Semitic policy, is reported to be the first step in the ultimate elimination of Suvich from public life because of the fact that he too is said to be a Jew or of Jewish origin. At the same time Edgardo Marpurgo, World War hero, was removed as head of the Assicurazioni Generale of Venice, the country's largest insurance company, and replaced by Count Guiseppe Volpi, former minister of finance. Meanwhile, King Victor Emanuel, long regarded as a friend of the Jews and who was a close friend of the late Nahum Sokolow, put his signature to the cabinet decree of September 1st ordering the expulsion within six months of all Jews who settled In Italy since January 1, 1919. The decree sets March 12th, 1939 as the deadline for compliance with the decree. The Italian-Jewish weekly, "Israel," reports that the Union of Italian Jewish commutniies has decided to set up courses in agriculture in every Hebrew school and to give every Jewish boy and girl over 13 training in handicrafts and mechanics in anticipation of new decrees excluding Jews from the professions. "Israel" declares that the execution of this re-training program is handicapped by lack of funds because the Italian government refuses to allow Italian Jews to receive financial aid from abroad.

FRIDAY, 8EPT. 16, 1938 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN PAGE FIVE WHAT IS !H[ AMERICAN WAY? Our Humors are Stronger Than Our Hates (BY DR. T. V. SMITH) With political thunder on the right and on the left, Americans are beginning more and more to talk of the "American way" of doing things. But what is the A meriean way ? Prof e a a o r Smith of the University of Chicago department of philosophy, answers that vital question in this shrewd analysis of the basic characteristics of the American people. —THE EDITOR. You met a Jew today, and you did not spit at each other. That's the American way. Or was it a Gentile you met, or a Catholic, a D. A. R., a Negro,, an agnostic, a pacifist, a Protestant, or a Pole? Whoever it was you met, you met him on the level and parted on the square. That's the American way. While you were doing all this meeting, I ate bacon and eggs at Chicago in the secure intimacy of my family, taught my classes at IIIIIIIHI llllinillllltlKIM 5699 1938-39 Congregation Beth David (Miami's Pioneer Congregation) EXTENDS A HAPPY NEW YEAE TO ALL High Holiday Services will be conducted at BETH DAVID SYNAGOGUE (137 N.

W. Third Avenue EVERY EVENING at 8 P. M. and EVERY SUNDAY MORNING HHIIIIIHHIHtl-lriHM the University of Chicago in easy give and take of intellectual camaraderie, finished this article as I flew to NewYork in the full feel of scient-'fic security, for a town meeting of the air speech with Col. Frank Knox without wanting to scratch his eyes out, though he once called me in print the unprintable name of a "radical metaphysician." That's the American way—to call, I mean, but not to scratch. We're an easy going lot, we Americans, we do not suppose that we have to have anybody in order to be somebody. If you meet me and I meet you, said Walt Whitman, why should we not speak to one another? Our hates, if we have them, are luxuries not necessities. Our humors are heavier than our hates. This good-natured feeing for social equality, this preference for friendliness, is the deepest meaning of the American way of life. First bom from this friendliness is our hab't of settling all differences through public talk and secret vote. Our contentment with the ballot reflects our love for the democratic way of life Whoever knows for certain that he's not God is glad to welcome the aid of other men in deternvng ine; what's right. Votinsr reduce? the risks of ignorance and doubles our joy in talk. It's a clever device, this suffrage; and more profound than most realize. We've settled thru its use all the questions we could not settle more quietly, save the issue of slavery. We Americans th'nk it literally more important to settle social questions than it is to settle them right. For God alone knows what's exactly right; but we men know what's friendly and decent. So we have thought ourselves fortunate to call right whatever nobody kicks over the traces about. But now come the Fascists to share God's prerogative and the Commun ; sts to monopolize it. This leaves many of us Americans who have only revolutionists and immigrants for ancestors not knowing which way to turn. They call us to the left or to the right and swear that we cannot stay in the middle without getting shot. This is the reason we're discussing the American way, because we aren't agreed as to what it is or where it is. I think I can tell you where it is. Perhaps we can tell each other what it is. It is where enough fellow-feeling still exists to make compromise appear the least of evils. It is not on the left; it is not on the right; it's still right there in the middle. But the middle of the stream is not easy to locate from either bank, especially when the banks themselves are constantly slipping. Only those who are in the middle can locate the m'ddle. Only the reasonably disposed, I mean, can 4>e reasonable about economic issues. In spite of difficulties, however, there is a golden mean in political controversy, whether the issue be spending, reorganization, regulation, taxation, or bureauracy! and this means has been discerned and exhibited by wise leaders of the people from Jefferson to Franklin Roosevelt. The cue to it is the thought that our liberalism is not a cult, but a mellow culture; that our democracy is not a product but a process, not a goal but a way of going. Democracy with us is whatever can be arrived at democratically. But that's vague. Dinner honoring the late Jacob H. Schiff by the Jewish Publication Society for bis services in its establishment. How fix it more definitely without unseating our successors? How else, indeed, than by the good old American way of free discussion, honest balloting, good sportsmanship in accepting the results, whatever they be? This is the way to find the middle course. Each generation must determine anew, as each generation has determined for itself, the shifting boundary between public and private enterprise. Let me respectfully remind the vociferous, fearful that we Americans applaud all past advances of the democratic will, fear only future advances. Each generation in America has under tightening condit'ons pushed further than the last the co-operative handling of things essentially common. Government has grown and grown without ever yet going beserk. Thus a dynamic democracy has swallowed, and can yet swallow, any number of dogmatic soc'alisms without any ill effects on its own health. To yell "regimentation" at regulation which the majority of men want, as the lunatic fringe on the r ; ght is now doing, is to have no effect unless to produce what they yell to prevent. To cry down processes of patience, as the lunatic fringe on the left is doing, is only to reveal that radicals do not trust democracy to produce democracy. Neither has discovered the sanity of the Amereican way, and so each ; s willing to proclaim its way as the way, the truth, the national life and salvation. The American way is to oscillate from nearly righ tto nearly left and back again institutionalizing thus the very principle of revolution, making a virtue of social necessity and a joy of ideologically variety. It is no voice of America. "The voice that whispers, 'This will last forever.' Or any voice repeat'ng, 'Never, never!' "—Jamie Sexton Holme. The chief new thing in our doKoolmotor Gasolene and Oils .flHfflEIt Distributed By ORANGE STATE OIL CO. mestic situation is that an actual majority is now roughly for the first time propertyless. A small minority of cultist leaders who think they are God on the left are shouting democratic desperation. A small minority who think they are God on the right are preventing dictatorships by trying to produce it. The great majority of our citizens are boaring their hardships as always and patiently pursuing the American way under leaders who are democratically rather than dogmatically trying to resolve issues as they arise. If you hate these leaders, you'll love something less lovely than they when your hate has done its hounding work. It may make would-be leaders desperate to see the majority achieve thus a leadership of its own far above lassitude; but it's only when the majority become desperate that wise men will worry. Farmers and laborers make un the majority of the nation. Farmers may now at long last, under the ever normal granary act, vote for something more important than the question as to which city slicker should represent them: they vote now on soil conservation, on quotas, on prices. Industrial laborers may now at long; last, under the national labor relations act, vote for something more substantial than the full dinner pail, no fuller afterward than before voting. Is it not of profound import that the technique of poltical democracy has quietly in half a decade become agrarian and industrial? From the social through the political to the economic does the star of democracy take its way. We are safe so long as the American way can thus extend itself through new classes to concrete problems. What new groups do with the machinery of democracy we must abide good naturedlv, even if they should all get well to do enough to send their own telegrams to weak-kneed congressmen. Whoever cannot abide this spread of democracy and face this chance without alarm, has too queasy a stomach for the American way. And if patriotism should go sour with plutocratic dyspepsia, let's try matriotism. Women have always been a part of the American way. Truly conservative, they do not so easily resort to falsetto, as did business men on the late reorganization bill. In that bill women saw what was there, a chance last to further merit and to achieve efficiency in government. When big, bold, heavy-jowled men go berserk the women will keep the nation sane where the issues of life are concerned. For above the fray of partisanship, women glimpse faces of those yet to be, phantom faces peering, peering for a chance to be well born; they hear absent voices bidding for a quiet spot on earth to call home, voices crying, crying for peace in the wilderness of the world. Let's try matriotism, if patriotism fails us.

These members were introduced during the course of the evening. This progress under the president's capable and untiring leadership is indicative of what is in store for us the coming year. May God grant him strength to continue, so conscientiously and religiously, the splendid work.

ZIONIST HEAD APPEALS TO JEWS New York, (WNS)— Declaring that Palestine "is the best tonic that any Jew could have in these days of the black plague of vindictive hate that Hitler has let loose upon the world," Dr. Solomon Goldman, president of the Zionfst Organization of America, warned in a statement issued on his return from a tour of inspection of Palestine and visits to England, Poland, Austria and Italy, that "the Jewish people are in the midst of a world war, whose extent and whose ruthlessness they have, not yet grasped." Dr. Goldman said that "whether it be in Vienna or in Palestine, it is dear that Adolf Hitler is making the destruction of the Jews a program from which he will not let up until either he or the Jewish people are wiped out." Emphasizing that it remains to be teen "whether the Jews, primarily the Jews of America, are ready to make the sacrifices nece<:ary for the saving of the Jews to the :iame extent that Hitler is bleeding Germany to destroy the Jews," Dr. Goldman said that "I am more convinced than ever before that, though temporary refuge in other lands is essential for the hundreds of thousands of Jews now being driven across the continent like terrorized sheep, it is only the permanence of the Jewish homeland in Palestine that can give to most of them and to the others who will follow a secure Mate for a peaceful life." Dr. Goldmci asserted that "Arab ernng.'ters and guerilla b.indits, fighting under the protective guise ( ,f nationalistic slogans, are trying ft undermine the great %  tTCeWfl ?h.'t Jewish initiative, capita' ar.d manpower have erected in the last 20 years. But it is Berlin and Rome, intent on embarrassing London and at the same time undermining the great enterprise of the Jews, that are giving the Arab terrorists both the encouragement and the material support. I am hoping to convey to America the truth about the struggle now going on in Palestine. It is a struggle that will determine whether the Jewish people, fighting against the seemingly overwhelming odds set up against them by all the resources of Germany and now of Italy, will be able to save the one place in the world to which the homeless and the uprooted among them mr.y go for security and peace." The difference between Vienna and Palestine, Dr. Goldman said, is that in Palestine Jews "courageously fight for their rights and are prepared to die, if necessary, in their defense... There is no injury and sorrow in Palestine but no insult and humiliation. The sufferings in Vienna are aimless and, therefore, unbearable; the trials of Palestine are the throes of rebirth, and therefore borne painfully but gladly." The Zionist president pointed out that the Jewish community in Palestine OBSERVE THE HOLY DAYS In Surroundings Truly Jewish!

But Palestine Jewry 1 ecognizes that it is for the rights of hundreds of thousands of Jews outride of Palestine that it fights, while it loses some of iu finest sons snd daughters. I„ Warsaw, Vienna, Prague, Italy Jewish leaders pleaded: take away our thousands! In Tel Aviv, Ain Hashofet, Raanaana, they importuned; bring our thousands! The heroism that is being displayed daily in Palestine should arouse American Jews to a new sense of admiration in the discovery that a Jewish type has been moulded in Palestine, comprising men and women who do not yield to oppression and attack, but fight back honorably and bravely regardlesj of the consequences to themselves."

TRIBUTETDADLER
Woods Hole, Mass., (WNS)
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
heads the roster of hundreds of
outstanding: public figures whose
tributes to Dr. Cyrus Adler on his
75th birthday, w^re, contained in
a testimonial volume presented to
him here by a small deputation of
Jewish leaders from New York
and Boston. The presentation was
made at Dr. Adler's summer home
because of his aversion to any
public manifestation. The tributes
were assembled by a committee
headed by Lewis J. Strauss. Harry
Srhneiderman, assistant secretary
of the American Jewish Commit-
tee, of which Dr. Adler is presi-
dent, was delegated by the testi-
monial committee to present the
volume to Dr. Adler. Mr. Schnei-
derman, who succeeded Dr. Adler
as editor of the Jewish Yearbook
in 1918, has been a close associate
of Dr. Adler for many years.
The tributes in the testimonial
volume include messages from ev-
ery state in the Union as well as
foreign countries. Among them is
one from Tom English, mayor of
Van Buren, Arkansas, where Dr.
Adler was born on September 13,
1863. There are also messages
from Mayor La Guardia of New
York and Mayor Wilson of Phil-
adelphia, cities in which Dr. Adler
has been living most of his life.
BROUN ASSAILS
"SHA-SHA" POLICY
New York, (WNS)Declaring
that "the hush-hush policy in re-
gard to anti-Semitism in America
has failed dismally," Heywood
Broon, in his syndicated column,
"It Seems to Me," asserted that
"this policy has fostered prejudice
instead of abating it." Broun said
"I think that the outright anti-
Semitism of the German-American
Bund is less dangerous than that
(if those who say piously, 'I have
no prejud.-e.Twt keep their fingers
crossed. Before a proper fight
for American freedom and toler-
ance can be made we must turn
on the light. It will be highly
salutary to smoke out the hidden
anti-Semites."
Referring to reports that anti-
Jewish feeling in the United States
will be intensified if President
Roosevelt nominates Felix Frank-
furter to the vacancy on the Unit-
ed States Supreme Court, Broun
said "I hope the President sub-
mits his name and that Frankfur-
ter will consent to face the arrows.
The issue which already has been
raised, even in anticipation, is ex-
traneous. But it also happens to
be one of the vital problems which
America must solve out in the
open if we are to stand as a cita-
del against the tide of Fascism."
Synagogues Offer
Bingo Substitute
Cincinnati, (WNS) Whether
the hot controversy of bingo in the
synagogue had anything to do
with it or not, hasn't been divulg-
ed, but "Quotorah," the new chil-
dren's game seems to be the ulti-
mate synthesis of bingo and reli-
gion. Attractively printed and
boxed, and sub-titled "The Bible
Quotation Game," "Quotorah" was
devised by Mabel H. Meyer and is
suitable for playtime in the relig-
ious school or home. The only
similarity between this new game
and bingo is that both are played
on a card which is covered with
smaller pasteboards by the player.
Instead of dull numbers, however.
"Quotorah" uses tiny pasteboards
bearing half a verse from the
Bible. The other half appears on
one of the cards held by the play-
ers.
L
IS RECALLED
Boston, (WNS)Giude Segre,
for the last three years Italy's
consul-general in Boston, has been
recalled because he's a Jew. Segre,
who is a member of economic af-
fairs is in the Italian Foreign Min-
istry. Segre's recall is part of the
sweeping extension of the anti-
Jewish policy to the diplomatic
and consular corps.
Rome, (WNS)The Lloyd
Triestine, the Italian steamship
line that became rich carrying Jew-
ish passngers to Palestine, has
dismissed all its Jewish employes.
It is also stated that the line's
ships have closed their synagogues.
Catholic Booklet
Is Best Seller
St. LouisA pamphlet by a
Catholic priest which refutes false
charges against the Jews and calls
upon people of all faiths to fight
extreme nationalism is rapidly
becoming the best-selling pamph-
let of the year. The pamphlet is
entitled, "Why are Jews Perse-
-uted?" and its author is Father
Joseph N. Moody, professor of
Medieval and Modern European
History at Cathedral College, New
York City. Over 40,000 copies
have been sold in the three months
,inre publication. Protesta n t,
Catholic and Jewish organizations
have aided in its distributon.
The pamphlet, which is publish-
ed by the Queen's Work here and
bears the imprmatur of Archbish-
op Glennon of St. Louis, emphas-
izes the need for a united front
of the religious forces against an-
ti-Semitism. Father Moody points
out that "Nationalism has reached
a point in its evolution in which
it is equally dangerous to the Jew-
ish and the Christian concept of
life, and both these international
religions are equally hated for the
same reasons by fanatical patriots
of the post-war period."
LEAGUE TO ACT
ON REFUGEES
Geneva, (WNS)The question
of large scale agricultural immi-
gration to South America will be
taken up by the League of Nations
Assembly for the first time, it was
announced officially as the 19th
meeting of the Assembly got un-
der way here. A permanent in-
ternational committee on migra-
tion for settlement, consisting of
representatives of interested coun-
tries as experts is to be created.
It will be empowered to deal not
only with technical problems but
also with questions concerning the
possibility of international finan-
cial arrangements to support mi-
gration.
W. J. Jordan of New Zealand,
acting president of the League
Council, opened the Assembly
meeting with an expression of
gratitude to President Roosevelt
for his "practical interest" in
helping refugees. Prom is i n g
I-eague support for Roosevelt's
efforts on behalf of refugees, Jor-
dan said "every nation represented
here has viewed with gratitude the
practical interest shown by Presi-
dent Roosevelt in the question of
refugees. The League surely wish-
es to do what lies in its power to
assist the work of rescue. Detrac-
tors of the League will not fail
to remark that Geneva was not
the scene of these events. This
prospect will not trouble anyone
in this Assembly, where we are all
agreed that the League is well
served by whatever serves peace
and cooperation by acts of good
faith and neighborly conduct."
Palcor Agency reported that the
Mandates Commission's report on
Palestine will probably be placed
before the. League Council this
week when Pierre Orts of Belgium,
chairman of the Commission, pre-
sents the find'ngs of that body's
investigation of the workings of
the Palestine Mandate. Great Bri-
tain is expected to submit a writ-
ten report answering the criticism
by the Mandates Commission of
British policy.
Geneva, (WNS)A new inter-
governmental committee on refu-
gee aid to supplant the work of
the agency created at the Evian
conference will be proposed to the
league of Nations Council, now
in session here, according to Sec-
retary-General Joseph C. Avenol.
Avenol said the new committee
was necessary because the one es-
tablished at Evian is limited in its

series of weekly broadcasts
this coming Sunday morning

o.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's full
of interesting news and com-
ments and music.
Secretary Ickes Urges
Social Betterment
Putin-Bay, Ohio, (WNS)The
United States and Canada "have
learned that ideas and accomplish-
ments are neither Catholic nor
Protestant, black nor white, so-
called Aryan nor Jewish" and
"each has drawn strength and vi-
tality from the diverse origins and
talents of its people," Secretary
of the Interior Harold E. Ickes de-
clared in dedicating a monument
here to Commodore Oliver Hazard
Perry on the 125th anniversary of
his winning of the Battle of Lake
Erie.
Ickes said "the best way to pro-
tect ourselves against Communism
or Fascism is to sterilize our social
soil so that these growths cannot
take root, and the best way to do
th:s is to provide for our citizens
such a satisfactory social and eco-
nomic lot that they will have no
desire to experiment with alien
systems that are repugnant to our
institutions."
BRITISH JEWS
BOYCOTT ITALY
London, (WNS)Brushing aside
threats of reprisals against Ital-
ian Jews if Jews abroad embarked
on a boycott of Italian goods and
shipping, the Jewish Peoples Coun-
cil Against Fascism and Anti-Sem-
itism, took steps to launch an anti-
Italian boycott when it adopted a
resolution declaring that "in the
event the Italian government pur-
sues its present course, boycott-
ing of Italian goods is the only
method to implement protest."
The Council made it clear, how-
ever, that it would not begin a
boycott alone, declaring "such a
step will be taken in conjunction
with other Jewish bodies, to which
end the Council is taking appro-
priate steps." It is understood
that the Board of Deputies of
British Jews is being consulted.
The first actual boycott of Ital-
ian goods was credited to the Fed-
erated Burial Society, whjch in-
structed its members that the use
of Italian marble in Jewish ceme-
teries is forbidden after September
9th "until the inhuman persecution
of the Jewish people in Italy ceas-
es." Reports reching here from
Cairo and Alexandria state that
the 10,000 Italian Jews in Egypt,
who have been ultra-Fascist in
their sympathies, are preparing to
boycott Italian merchandise.
scope to refugees from Germany
and Austria. League delegates
have been discussing ways and
means of extending aid to refu-
gees from Italy. A plan to extend
the League's refugee work to Ital-
ian Jews has been drafted by the
Swiss delegation.
The entire refugee question w'll
be a major subject on the agenda
of the meeting, and the hope is
that the League can prevail upon
countries that admitted refugees
not to expel them until provision
is made for their immigration to
other lands.
CHURCH GROUP
ISSUES APPEAL
PhiladelphiaThe Ame r i c a n
Friends Service Committee and
the Church of the Brethren are is-
suing an appeal to farmers to give
part of their surplus wheat crop
for child-feeding on both sides in
the Spanish-Civil War. The ap-
peal points out that some refugees
in Spain arc rationed to a poor
slice of bread a day.
"It is a sad reflection on world
conditions that millions of people
should be starving for bread in a
year of bumper wheat crops," the
appeal states. "Here in America,
we are embarrassed with an over-
production of wheat that forces
our farmers to take low prices
while in other parts of the world
wheat cannot be bought at any
price. Worth about 75c a bushel
here, wheat has been costing us
$1.47 in London and $2.25 by the
time it is delivered in Spain.
"In these days of reduced in-
comes it is good to be able to ask
for something of which there is a
super abundance. Appeals are
being made through the churches
but many individuals miss the
message."
Any farmer who can offer
wheat or other non-perishable foo products can send a postcard to
the American Friends Service
Committee, 20 South 12th Street,
Philadelphia, the appeal adds. The
quantity available should be stat-
ed and the Committee will make
arrangements to collect it or give
instructions for shipping it to a
central point.

in which we live and the protec-
tion of that democracy and its
principles, ideals and institutions
against all subversive forces and
influences," in a five-point pro-
gram for the coming year announc-
ed this week by Henry Monsky,
national president, in his Rosh
Hashanah message. Other points
in the program are: relief for ref-
ugees from lands of persecution,
aid and assistance in the rebuild-
ing of Palestine; unremitting ef-
fort in the defense of Jewish
rights; and the building of a
richer and more vital Jewish life.
Declaring that "B'nai B'rith is
conscious of its responsibility" and
"fully cognizant of the contribu-
tion it must make in this crisis,"
Mr. Monsky said "we must not,
and we shall not be content to rest
upon tradition or the glory of the
past. The distressing conditions
of the times demand greater ser-
vice and unprecedented sacrifice."

SPINOZA GROUP
LECTURES CONTINUE
"Italy once the land of fine
artsof freedomand of joy,
What has become of you ?" was
the topic of Mr. Daniel Lawrence's
address before the Spinoza Group
last Saturday afternoon. This was
a very scholarly and inspiring talk
as the lecturer had lived for many
years in Italy and made an exten-
sive study of its arts and people.
The lecturer expressed sincere
confidence in the Italian people
in their goodness, and in the great
influence of their famed scholars,
artists and liberators who through
their master-pieces, for thousands
of years have swayed the masses
to be free-loving and kind to their
fellow-men.
Miss Dorothy Lightman recited
and Miss Clayton briefly demon-
strated the relation of rhythm in
the universe. Mr .Braverman and
Mr. Jacobi rendered vocal selec-
tions.

p. m., the Spinoza Group will meet
as usual, on the lawn at 1059 Col-

Self-Respect
With the Ro3h Hashono and the penitential days fast ap-
proaching it is high time that we pay heed to a problem, which
in the final analysis, is nothing more or less than '' self-respect.''
Wil our children attend school on Rosh Hashono......
will they afford the non-Jew the opportunity that Jews have no
regard for their own faith. Will Jews keep open on Rosh
Hashono and Yom Kippur and provide our enemies and detrac-
tors with more grounds to accuse of an inveterate love for
money and a disregard for our own traditions. Neither of
these problems are purely religious. They involve something
even greater. that of self-respect. What avail it if we gain
everything and lose the most precious of all possessions, self-
respect.
Will our children attend school on Rosh Hashono......
Italy and Japan and furnish the funds whereby our own fellow
Jews and other human beings are to be destroyed. Are we to
lose our self-respect?
Are we to aid and abet in the establishment of mushroom
synagogues and thus make a "business" out of that which
should forever remain purely spiritual. Shall we lose our self-
respect?
Shall we continue the practice of shopping for seats for the
High Holy Days and not join a synagogue or temple, though
this necessarily means the loss of our self-respect.
Shall we forget those needy who are waiting on our con-
tributions to afford them an opportunity of eking out a mere
existence and thus fail to retain our self-respect.
The answer should be very, very simple. We cannot afford
to lose our self-respect. We shall retain it.
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
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 npw and gone
tomorrow, money raising stunt. .
Phone 2-1141 and we will be
Happy to Serve Y ou
I WRITE AS I
PLEASE
Hats off to Harry Simonhoff
who minced no words in upbraid-
ing those who still think in the
"escapist" manner. Jews must face
the facts and act like men. We
must fight those who desire to de-
stroy us. Anti-Semitism has no
place in America and the quicker
we fight any and every manifes-
tation of such un-American activi-
ties, out in the open, the better off
we will be.
BIBLE AND BINGO
Of course, there is no getting
away from the fact that we must
recognize the all important fact
that without a Jewish religion,
there can be no Jewish people. If
the adult hereabouts would recog-
nize their duty to the synagogue
and temple, there would be but
little effort required to impress
the youngsters in the schools and
universities. Those who are now
shopping for "bargains" in High
Holy day accommodations would
have far more self-respect if they
would join the synagogue or tem-
ple and eventually do away with
the necessity for "bargaining."
Refugees are Shown
As Self-Supporting
Those who spread charges of
"anti-Semitism" against any and
every firm because of some per-
sonal reason must be made to
realize that such action creates
that very thing they object to.
Rightfully it is the duty of every
self-respecting Jew to exonerate
every individual or firm who is
guiltless. The charges which have
been bandied about against the lo-
cal S. H. Kress Company is an ex-
ample. Charges of anti-Semitism
and discrimination against Jews
have been made. An examination
discloses that these charges are
untrue, and that Jews are employ-
ed with this firm. Let's, as real
and true Jews, be fair with all.
Let's set an example for others.
Mushroom synagogues, no mat-
ter under what guise, have no
place in this area. When syna-
gogues become matters of "busi-
ness" and are opened for the
"busy" season only, it is high time
that Rabbis and laymen speak out
in terms that are unmistakable.
These mushroom synagogues put
the Jews in a horrible light. Re-
ligion should be and must be pure-
ly spiritual and represent the com-
munity, and not be an individual
venture for gain.
While the battle ragedand nei-
ther side scoredit seems the
powers that be decided upon a sud"
den climax, and God made a com-
promise with bingo. It all came
about under the deft supervision
of one Mabel H. Meyer, whose
feminine sense of propriety had
been for a long time in a quandry
as to how to take bingo out of the
temples. It seems that even as
the Rabbi spoke his sermon, the
very walls would echo in dull mon-
otonous beat: "Bingo. play
Play Bingo. Bingo in the base-
ment. And as if himself un-
der the mesmeric spell, the Rev-
erend Doctor, on conclusion of the
services, might add, "there will be
bingo in the basement on Tuesday
night at eight. ..."
Everyone felt the menace, but
of course it was left for a woman
to combat. Thus, the news bulle-
tin before us reads: "Whether the
hot controversy over bingo in the
synagogue had anything to do with
it or not, hasn't been divulged.
But "Quotorah," the new children's
game just published by the Union
of American Hebrew Congrega-
tions, seems to be the ultimate
synthesis of bingo and religion."
Played on a card which is covered
with smaller pasteboard disks by
the player, from a distance it
might easily pass as the real
thing. On closer scrutiny, how-
ever, one finds that instead of
numbers, on each of the smaller
pasteboard cards is a quotation
from the Bible. Hence, the name:
"Quotorah." Pretty tricky, eh?
Looks like bingo, is played like
bingo, but isn't bingo at all. In
reality, it might even be said God
scored.
In all seriousness, however, we
think it's a swell idea. Since chil-
dren want to play and since know-
ledge acquired in play is more
easily and permanently retained,
perhaps in this way Bible quota-
tions may be learned and loved in-
stead of mumbled by rote as a
dose and forgotten. Perhaps in
this way may be inspired a curios-
ity and further perusal of the
Bible for study.
New York, (WNS) Not a sin-
gle German refugee admitted to
the United States has become a
public charge, Dr. Joseph P. Cham-
berlain, chairman of the National
Co-ordinat'ng Committee for Aid
to Refugees and Emigrants Com-
ing from Germany, declared at a
press conference here. "By far
the greater number of immigrants
from Germany to the United
States in the past four years have
come to relatives who have fur-
nished affidavits and assumed re-
sponsibility for them after their
arrival, and carried that responsi-
bility out so that the immigrants
have been absorbed into the life
of the country through the efforts
of their relatives and friends," he
said.
The committee, Dr. Chamberlain
said, does not provide funds to
bring refugees here but seeks to
facilitate the obtaining of loans
to establish new enterprises and
to assist the refugees to become
self-supporting and to assimilate
themselves into American life. He
reported that one refugee had pat-
ented an ash-tray-match combina-
tion which is being manufactured
in an Ohio factory employing 300
persons.
Declaring that increasing Nazi
pressure on the Jews was increas-
ing the number of refugees to a
point where the entire German
Austrian quota of 27,370 would be
filled, Dr. Chamberlain said that
in the fiscal year ending June 30,
1938 there were 11,917 refugees,
Jews and non-Jews, admitted to
the United States, including 513
from Austria. The figures for
the previous years were: 1934
4,392; 19355-210; 193ft6346;
193710895.
MARCH 1939 SET
FOR EXPULSION
B'nai B'rith should be commend-
ed for the establishment of a ref-
erence library at the University of
Miami on matters Jewish. If only
the students at the University
will use it, we shall have gained
much.
We wonder just how many of
Greater Miami's Jewish residents
will really show their interest in
the plight of their fellow Jews and
respond with a contribution to the
Jewish Welfare Bureau's appeal
for funds.
TOSGANINI TO
LEAVE ITALY
So much can be done if the prop-
er spirit is shown. If our local or-
ganizations will only cooperate we
can accomplish much for the good
of all. An example is an offer of
cooperation by the local B'nai
B'rith Lodge to the Freda Marko-
witz Post of the Jewish War Vet-
erans in making the 1939 Conven-
tion of the Veterans a real success.
We wonder if the local syna-
gogues will extend a few minutes
of their time during the Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur servic-
es to representatives of B'nai
B'rith to explain local problems.
LONDON, (WNS) Arturo Tos-
canini, world-famed orchestra con-
ductor, has decided to give up his
city home in Milan and his seaside
cottage at Lake Maggiore in Italy
as a protest against Italian anti-
Semitism, according to a report in
the London Evening Standard.
Toscanini has long been an out-
spoken foe of Nazism and Fas-
cism. He has refused to conduct
at Salzburg since Austria went
Nazi and even before that declined i
to come to Salzburg unless he
were assured his performances
would not be broadcast to Ger-
many. He was one of the found-
ers of the Palestine Symphony Or-
chestra, composed largely of refu-
gee musicians. Twice he went to
Palestine to conduct that orches-
tra.
Rome, (WNS)The appoint-
ment of Fulvio Suvich, Italian am-
bassador to the United States, as
head of the Reuniene of Adriatica
of Trieste, one of Italy's two big-
gest insurance companies, in place
of Arnaldo Frigessi di Rattalma,
a Jew, who was forced to resign
as a result of the new anti-Semitic
policy, is reported to be the first
step in the ultimate elimination of
Suvich from public life because of
the fact that he too is said to be
a Jew or of Jewish origin. At the
same time Edgardo Marpurgo,
World War hero, was removed as
head of the Assicurazioni Generale
of Venice, the country's largest
insurance company, and replaced
by Count Guiseppe Volpi, former
minister of finance.
Meanwhile, King Victor Eman-
uel, long regarded as a friend of
the Jews and who was a close
friend of the late Nahum Sokolow,
put his signature to the cabinet
decree of September 1st ordering
the expulsion within six months
of all Jews who settled In Italy
since January 1, 1919. The decree
sets March 12th, 1939 as the dead-
line for compliance with the de-
cree.
The Italian-Jewish weekly, "Is-
rael," reports that the Union of
Italian Jewish commutniies has de-
cided to set up courses in agricul-
ture in every Hebrew school and
to give every Jewish boy and girl
over 13 training in handicrafts and
mechanics in anticipation of new
decrees excluding Jews from the
professions. "Israel" declares
that the execution of this re-train-
ing program is handicapped by
lack of funds because the Italian
government refuses to allow Ital-
ian Jews to receive financial aid
from abroad.

WHAT IS !H[ AMERICAN WAY?
Our Humors are Stronger Than Our Hates
(BY DR. T. V. SMITH)
With political thunder on the
right and on the left, Americans
are beginning more and more to
talk of the "American way" of
doing things. But what is the
A meriean way ? Prof e a a o r
Smith of the University of Chi-
cago department of philosophy,
answers that vital question in
this shrewd analysis of the basic
characteristics of the American
people.
THE EDITOR.
You met a Jew today, and you
did not spit at each other. That's
the American way. Or was it a
Gentile you met, or a Catholic, a
D. A. R., a Negro,, an agnostic, a
pacifist, a Protestant, or a Pole?
Whoever it was you met, you met
him on the level and parted on
the square. That's the American
way.
While you were doing all this
meeting, I ate bacon and eggs at

the University of Chicago in easy
give and take of intellectual cam-
araderie, finished this article as
I flew to NewYork in the full feel
of scient-'fic security, for a town
meeting of the air speech with Col.
Frank Knox without wanting to
scratch his eyes out, though he
once called me in print the un-
printable name of a "radical met-
aphysician." That's the American
wayto call, I mean, but not to
scratch.
We're an easy going lot, we
Americans, we do not suppose that
we have to have anybody in order
to be somebody. If you meet me
and I meet you, said Walt Whit-
man, why should we not speak to
one another? Our hates, if we
have them, are luxuries not neces-
sities. Our humors are heavier
than our hates. This good-natur-
ed feeing for social equality, this
preference for friendliness, is the
deepest meaning of the American
way of life.
First bom from this friendli-
ness is our hab't of settling all
differences through public talk
and secret vote. Our contentment
with the ballot reflects our love
for the democratic way of life
Whoever knows for certain that
he's not God is glad to welcome
the aid of other men in deternvng
ine; what's right. Votinsr reduce?
the risks of ignorance and doubles
our joy in talk.
It's a clever device, this suf-
frage; and more profound than
most realize. We've settled thru
its use all the questions we could
not settle more quietly, save the
issue of slavery. We Americans
th'nk it literally more important
to settle social questions than it
is to settle them right.
For God alone knows what's ex-
actly right; but we men know
what's friendly and decent. So
we have thought ourselves fortu-
nate to call right whatever nobody
kicks over the traces about. But
now come the Fascists to share
God's prerogative and the Commu-
n;sts to monopolize it. This leaves
many of us Americans who have
only revolutionists and immigrants
for ancestors not knowing which
way to turn. They call us to the
left or to the right and swear that
we cannot stay in the middle with-
out getting shot. This is the rea-
son we're discussing the American
way, because we aren't agreed as
to what it is or where it is.
I think I can tell you where it
is. Perhaps we can tell each oth-
er what it is. It is where enough
fellow-feeling still exists to make
compromise appear the least of
evils. It is not on the left; it is
not on the right; it's still right
there in the middle. But the mid-
dle of the stream is not easy to lo-
cate from either bank, especially
when the banks themselves are
constantly slipping. Only those
who are in the middle can locate
the m'ddle. Only the reasonably
disposed, I mean, can 4>e reason-
able about economic issues.
In spite of difficulties, however,
there is a golden mean in political
controversy, whether the issue be
spending, reorganization, regula-
tion, taxation, or bureauracy! and
this means has been discerned and
exhibited by wise leaders of the
people from Jefferson to Franklin
Roosevelt. The cue to it is the
thought that our liberalism is not
a cult, but a mellow culture; that
our democracy is not a product
but a process, not a goal but a
way of going. Democracy with
us is whatever can be arrived at
democratically. But that's vague.
Dinner honoring the late Jacob H. Schiff by the Jewish Publication Society for bis ser-
vices in its establishment.
How fix it more definitely without
unseating our successors?
How else, indeed, than by the
good old American way of free
discussion, honest balloting, good
sportsmanship in accepting the
results, whatever they be? This is
the way to find the middle course.
Each generation must determine
anew, as each generation has de-
termined for itself, the shifting
boundary between public and pri-
vate enterprise. Let me respect-
fully remind the vociferous, fear-
ful that we Americans applaud all
past advances of the democratic
will, fear only future advances.
Each generation in America has
under tightening condit'ons push-
ed further than the last the co-op-
erative handling of things essen-
tially common. Government has
grown and grown without ever yet
going beserk. Thus a dynamic
democracy has swallowed, and can
yet swallow, any number of dog-
matic soc'alisms without any ill
effects on its own health.
To yell "regimentation" at reg-
ulation which the majority of men
want, as the lunatic fringe on the
r;ght is now doing, is to have no
effect unless to produce what they
yell to prevent. To cry down pro-
cesses of patience, as the lunatic
fringe on the left is doing, is only
to reveal that radicals do not trust
democracy to produce democracy.
Neither has discovered the sanity
of the Amereican way, and so each
;s willing to proclaim its way as
the way, the truth, the national
life and salvation. The American
way is to oscillate from nearly
righ tto nearly left and back again
institutionalizing thus the very
principle of revolution, making a
virtue of social necessity and a
joy of ideologically variety. It is no
voice of America. "The voice that
whispers, 'This will last forever.' "
Or any voice repeat'ng, 'Never,
never!' "Jamie Sexton Holme.
The chief new thing in our do-

mestic situation is that an actual
majority is now roughly for the
first time propertyless. A small
minority of cultist leaders who
think they are God on the left are
shouting democratic desperation.
A small minority who think they
are God on the right are prevent-
ing dictatorships by trying to pro-
duce it. The great majority of
our citizens are boaring their
hardships as always and patiently
pursuing the American way under
leaders who are democratically
rather than dogmatically trying to
resolve issues as they arise. If
you hate these leaders, you'll love
something less lovely than they
when your hate has done its hound-
ing work.
It may make would-be leaders
desperate to see the majority
achieve thus a leadership of its
own far above lassitude; but it's
only when the majority become
desperate that wise men will wor-
ry. Farmers and laborers make
un the majority of the nation.
Farmers may now at long last,
under the ever normal granary
act, vote for something more im-
portant than the question as to
which city slicker should repre-
sent them: they vote now on soil
conservation, on quotas, on prices.
Industrial laborers may now at
long; last, under the national labor
relations act, vote for something
more substantial than the full din-
ner pail, no fuller afterward than
before voting. Is it not of pro-
found import that the technique
of poltical democracy has quietly
in half a decade become agrarian
and industrial? From the social
through the political to the econo-
mic does the star of democracy
take its way.
We are safe so long as the
American way can thus extend it-
self through new classes to con-
crete problems. What new groups
do with the machinery of demo-
cracy we must abide good natur-
edlv, even if they should all get
well to do enough to send their
own telegrams to weak-kneed con-
gressmen. Whoever cannot abide
this spread of democracy and face
this chance without alarm, has too
queasy a stomach for the Amer-
ican way.
And if patriotism should go sour
with plutocratic dyspepsia, let's
try matriotism. Women have al-
ways been a part of the American
way. Truly conservative, they do
not so easily resort to falsetto, as
did business men on the late re-
organization bill. In that bill wo-
men saw what was there, a chance
last to further merit and to
achieve efficiency in government.
When big, bold, heavy-jowled men
go berserk the women will keep the
nation sane where the issues of
life are concerned. For above the
fray of partisanship, women
glimpse faces of those yet to be,
phantom faces peering, peering
for a chance to be well born; they
hear absent voices bidding for a
quiet spot on earth to call home,
voices crying, crying for peace in
the wilderness of the world. Let's
try matriotism, if patriotism fails
us.

BETH DAVID'S OPENING
AFFAIR
The Beth David auditorium was
filled to capacity last Sunday ev-
ening by members and wives who
came to take part in our first con-
gregational dinner and meeting for
the coming year. It was a most
outstanding affair honoring the
"old-timers" of our institution who
were presented to the audience by
Mr. lsidor Cohen who served as
toastmaster for the evening. Mr.
Cohen and the others who spoke
pledged their undivided support to
the present administration and
their deep appreciation for the
reasonable progress the institution
has made. It was indeed a gala
affair and we were greatly pleased
with the spirit manifested by all.
particularly by the pioneers who
showed such gracious mental at-
tributes in their expressions of
loyalty.
Mr. Cohen was presented with a
scroll by the president, Mr. M. J.
Kopelowitr which contained the ex-
pression of tribute to our great
co-worker and ardent Jewish citi-
zen, Isidor Cohen. Suitably in-
scribed was the life-membership
extended to him with the present
prayer that he. his wife and family
be with ns for many years to come-
One of the many highlights of
the evening was the statement by
the president that over thirty-five
new members became affiliated
during the past three weeks. These
members were introduced during
the course of the evening. This
progress under the president's cap-
able and untiring leadership is in-
dicative of what is in store for us
the coming year. May God grant
him strength to continue, so con-
scientiously and religiously, the
splendid work. Our many thanks
to the president of the Sisterhood
and her co-workers for their fine
preparations in serving such a re-
past.
Beth David, you started the cur
rent year with the right spirit.
Continue this remarkable achieve-
ment of closer harmony and mu-

bers which is bound to resound to
our honor and credit.

ZIONIST HEAD
APPEALS TO JEWS
New York, (WNS) Declaring
that Palestine "is the best tonic
that any Jew could have in these
days of the black plague of vin-
dictive hate that Hitler has let
loose upon the world," Dr. Solo-
mon Goldman, president of the
Zionfst Organization of America,
warned in a statement issued on
his return from a tour of inspec-
tion of Palestine and visits to
England, Poland, Austria and
Italy, that "the Jewish people are
in the midst of a world war, whose
extent and whose ruthlessness
they have, not yet grasped." Dr.
Goldman said that "whether it be
in Vienna or in Palestine, it is
dear that Adolf Hitler is making
the destruction of the Jews a pro-
gram from which he will not let
up until either he or the Jewish
people are wiped out."
Emphasizing that it remains to
be teen "whether the Jews, pri-
marily the Jews of America, are
ready to make the sacrifices nec-
e<:ary for the saving of the Jews
to the :iame extent that Hitler is
bleeding Germany to destroy the
Jews," Dr. Goldman said that "I
am more convinced than ever be-
fore that, though temporary ref-
uge in other lands is essential for
the hundreds of thousands of Jews
now being driven across the con-
tinent like terrorized sheep, it is
only the permanence of the Jewish
homeland in Palestine that can
give to most of them and to the
others who will follow a secure
Mate for a peaceful life."
Dr. Goldmci asserted that "Arab
ernng.'ters and guerilla b.indits,
fighting under the protective guise
(,f nationalistic slogans, are trying
ft undermine the great tTCeWfl
?h.'t Jewish initiative, capita' ar.d
manpower have erected in the last
20 years. But it is Berlin and
Rome, intent on embarrassing
London and at the same time un-
dermining the great enterprise of
the Jews, that are giving the Arab
terrorists both the encouragement
and the material support. I am
hoping to convey to America the
truth about the struggle now go-
ing on in Palestine. It is a strug-
gle that will determine whether
the Jewish people, fighting against
the seemingly overwhelming odds
set up against them by all the re-
sources of Germany and now of
Italy, will be able to save the one
place in the world to which the
homeless and the uprooted among
them mr.y go for security and
peace."
The difference between Vienna
and Palestine, Dr. Goldman said,
is that in Palestine Jews "courag-
eously fight for their rights and
are prepared to die, if necessary,
in their defense... There is no in-
jury and sorrow in Palestine but
no insult and humiliation. The
sufferings in Vienna are aimless
and, therefore, unbearable; the
trials of Palestine are the throes
of rebirth, and therefore borne
painfully but gladly." The Zion-
ist president pointed out that the
Jewish community in Palestine

a Jewish type has been moulded in
Palestine, comprising men and wo-

sion and attack, but fight back

thing when they fail to let B'nai
j B'rith know what they are about.
