FRIDAY, SEPT. 30, 1938 PRICE FIVE CENTS [ New York, (WNS)—A permanent organization of the General Council for Jewish Rights, created on August 15th by representatives of the B'nai B'rith, American Jewish Committee, American Jewish Congress, and Jewish Labor Committee to coordinate activities for the protection of Jews, was effected at an all-day meeting here last week at which Edgar J. Kaufman, Pittsburgh merchant, was elected chairman. Mr. Kaufman, r>rime mover in the June 13th Pittsburgh conference that led to the formation of the Council, had been acting chairman. Named to serve with him were Henry Mongky, president of B'nai B'rith, and B. Charney Vladeck, president of the Jewish Labor Committee, vice(hairman; Carl Sherman of the American Jewish Congress, secretary; and Carl Austrian of the American Jewish Committee, treasurer. Meeting for the first time as the permanent representatives of the member groups, the 20 leaders, five from each organization, who have been elected to the General Council for a period of one year. mimed a special committee, representing each of the four agencies, with instructions to coordinate and expand the activities already undertaken in the interests of the Jewish communities of Czechoslovakia and Italy. This action was taken after a lengthy consideration of Jewish conditions abroad and discussion of a program to meet the situation. Another committee, to be known as the policy and program committee, was named to study the entire Jew'sh situation and methods hitherto employed to deal with it, and on the basis of these studies to recommend a program of action to be carried out by the Council. This committee, whi<*h will be appointed this week, will consist of two representatives from each of the four organizations with Arthur S. Meyer as chairman. The next meeting of the Council is expected to be held short 1; after the H'gh Holy Days by which time the personnel of the policy and program committee will be known. The Council also discussed the establishment of permanent headquarters and the selection of the secretariat. All four member organizations will share the costs of the Council's work in equal proportion. The 20 members of the Council are :B*nai B'rith—Henry Monsky of Omaha, Edwin J. Schanfarber of Columbua, Ohio, Judge A. K.

The new High Commissioner will assume his duties on January 1, as head of the combined Nansen Office and High Commission for German Refugees, which are to be merged on the recommendation of the League Council.

Sullivan, Dies said announced plans for the organization of a "league for peace and Americanism" which would f'ght Nazism. Fascism and Communism and fight for stronger immigration and deportation laws.

This action indicates that the Jews are determined to resume a normal tempo of upbuilding. Eleazor Kaplan, treasurer of the Agency, announced that $880,000 had been spent by the Agency in the past year for eolonizat'on of all classes of settlers, more than 33 percent of whom were no' members of the Histadruth.

Sabath, member of the House of Representatives from II1'nois and dean of the House in point of years of service, is slated to become chairman of the House Rules Committee when the 76th Congress meets in January.

He got two votes for the State Assembly in a Harlem district and one in Peepskill, upstate. sociation. During his occupancy of this position Boris S-hlachman organized the annual Parade of Stars, and was instrumental in bringing the organization to the fore in many ways. In recognition of the services rendered to the organization, the tombstone erected on his grave was presented by the Young Men's Hebrew Association. All members of the Y. are asked to be on hand in the cemetery at 1:45 to aid in the arrangements. The general public is urged to attend and pay their respects to the memory of one who served this area for many years. CZECH JEWS PLEDGE SUPPORT Prague, (WNS)—The entire material resources of the Jewish population of Czechoslovakia as well as of its manpower were placed at the command pf the new military government of Premier Jan Syrovy as Jews joined with the whole country in wildly enthusiastic patriotic demonstrations in support of efforts to resist the dismemberment of the country. Answering a call to contribute to an emergency war fund, the Jews of the country gave in a measure far beyond their proportion. Men and boys of all ages are volunteering by the thousands for military service. From Jews abroad the wor off'ce is receiving almost hourly by phone, mail and cable offers to join the Czech army. Jewish refugees from Germany and Austria granted asylum in Czechoslovakia •ire in the van of these volunteer: ng to resist invasion. Meanwhile, some 15,000 of the 22,000 Jews in Sudeten German listricts have already left the area to be ceded to Germany. About 1,000 of the refugees are in Prague •vhere they are adding to the burden of the already harrassed refugee committees. The others are being sheltered in nearby resort towns. Plans are being made to send many of the Sudeten refugees to the sparsely settled towns in the province of Carpatho-Russ'a. Hastily equipped barracks have been thrown open by the government to house the refugees. Two Jewish relief committees are working day and night to provide for the emigres whose exodus from the Suduten was speeded up by an official announcement of the discovery in an abandoned Sudeten rvirtv headouarters at Duchov of a complete list of Jews and Social Democrats. In all the Orthodox synagogues of Prague special prayers are being said hourly for the preservation of the Republic. In some of the smaller synagogues frequented) mostly by elderly Jews Tilim is being said and clothes are being rent as if in mourning. Polish and Hungarian Jews trying to leave the country have been denied visas by the Polish and Hungarian consulates. REIVE SECOND L Rome, (WNS)—Rear Admiral Aldo Ascoli, one of the best known figures in the Italian navy, ha a been relieved of his post as commander of the Italian fleet in the Aegean Sea.

Repentance We are still within the Penitential period. Yom Kippur the most solemn day of the entire Jewish year will be with us next Wednesday. Many will fast, many will simply go to the synagogue to view the sights, and others will not even do that much. As a community we have much to be thankful for, and still nrnch more to be repentant for. This is Jewish Education month throughout the country. What have we in this area done for Jewish education, youth or adult? Shall we repent and be content, or shall we as true repentants determine to rectify our errors and really do something for Jewish education in a real constructive manner. What have we done for Kashrus? Shall we be content with agreeing to everything because it is expedient or shall we repent and then determine to make Kashrus something that is ral and not theoretical. Shall we permit people to get away with everything that is unfair and unreal? Our synagogues were crowded to capacity. The Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation held overflow services in a residence across the street from the synagogue. The Beth Jacol Congregation at Miami Beach was compelled to use its Talmud Torah building to take care of the additional worshippers. Beth David and Temple Israel all had capacity crowds. But what about tho rest of the year? Shall we repent and realise that Judaism is not *mply a three or two day religion? Though perhaps we should be thankful for even that? Miami should repent, and repenting, determine to be in the forefront of everything worth while, everything constructive, be that Jewish education, Charity, Bnai B'rith, Zionism or the like. VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE FOR JEWISH YOUTH (BY MAX The author of this column, a recent graduate of Creighton University and an expert in guidance and personal problems, is the director of organization of the B'nai B'rith Vocational Service Bureau. Not long ago a skeptic said to the writer: "111 tell you what vocational guidance is. Vocational guidance is the process of assist'"g an individual to choose and prepare for an occupation in which to be unemployed." There are very many people who share this viewpoint. They place great emphasis on the fact that 5,000,000 young people in this country between the ages of 16 and 24 are out of school and out of a job. In such circumstances, they say, vocational guidance is meaningless. They forget that 8,000,000 of America's youth are employed. They also forget that 4,000,000 others are still in school preparing for employment and that for F. BAEB) those 4,000,000 school youth the present chances are at least eight to five in favor of their finding some kind"*of steady employment after graduation. Of course, we must find occupation for the other 5,000,000. If we do not, American democracy will be seriously imperilled. But that task is bound up with the general problem of economic reconstruction in America. The vocational guidance worker necessarily performs his duty within the limitations of the existing economic order. His responsibility is to see that the young people who do find jobs do not become misfits in the occupational world. And what is a young person who does not have a job toHe should, nonetheless, know something about the world of work and he should know something about his personal assets and liabilities so that when he is able to enter the portals of industry, he will be able to maka satisfactory Thanks! Monday, Sept. 26th, 1938. Mr. J. L. Shochet, Jewish Floridian, 21 S. W. 2nd Avenue. Dear Sir: I want to congratulate you for your splendid work on the Jewish Hour broadcast yesterday. I am not Jewish, but I tuned in your program Sunday by accident and found it so unusually interesting and inspiring that I was forced to stay through to the finish. Your news of Jewish activities in charitable works clearly presents the fine spiritual side of the Jewish people. More of those sood programs will do much to erase some of the false impressions that son:e of the Gentiles in this area seem to have of Jews. I liked the straight forward manner in which the entire program was delivered. It was not overdone or overtoned and the direct deliberation in your presentation of news and announcements was a pleasure to hear. Again, congratulations. I'll be waiting to hear you again next Sunday. Yours truly, FOHEST D. FREELAND. / Write As I Please A STATEMENT September 27, 1938. Dear Mr. Shochet: We enjoyed immensely your eloquent talk on the radio this Sunday morning. The Hebrew records played were as timely as they were good to hear. My heartiest wishes for a very happy and prosperous New Year. Faithfully yours, THE SPINOZA GROUP, Dr. A. Wolfson. occupational adjustment. The 5,000,000 young people who are out of school and unemployed today are not the same 5,000,000 who will be unemployed tomorrow. The number of unemployed youth may be the same or even greater, but the individuals in that category will be different. We do not know today who will have a job tomorrow and who will not, nor how long in each case. Therefore, we must see to it that all youth comes under the influence of vocational guidance. The very fact that youth is today suffering an era of joblessness makes the need for vocational direction more imperative. Abe Cohen, who has never had the benefit of adequate vocational counseling, is a shoe clerk in a department store. Abe has an introverted personality and loses many sales for the store. His heart not being in his work, he is unhappy and causes discontent among his fellow-employees. Abe's boss curses Abe under his breath and mutters that if times were not so prosperous and shoe clerks so hard to get, he would get rid of the fellow in a minute. Then comes the depression, and the department store, finding itself with more shoe clerks than it needs, picks Abe Cohen as the first man to be let out. When business conditions are favorable and there is a great demand for workers, even those who are not fitted for the particular occupations in which they are engaged may be able to hold their jobs. But when the economic baremeter falls and there is a corresponding decline in the demand for labor, the first workers to be thrown out of employment are the vocational misfits. Jewish youth certainly needs That gentleman who writes under the lengthy pseudonym—"I Write as I Please" in the Jewish Floridian, labors under the impression that he is quite great and outstanding because of his frinkness and "watch-doggedness" relative to Jewish matters in this community of ours. He or she has seen fit to criticize grandiloquently everything that does not appeal to his sense of propriety, arid of course, he is always correct in his observations. So he thinks. He is the "Beth-Din She! Mataw" and perhaps "Shel Maalow" as well, namely,—he is the criterion on all matters Jewish. So it appears when one reads his column (if one takes the patience to do so) whereby he attacks organizations with which he is not identified or has no say, but beautifully pictures the one organization with which he is interwoven. One would imagine that he is a most ardent Zionist and co-patriot of Zionist endeavors when he takes the Zionist District to task for not being active. If he were hones; with himself and impartial (as a writer should be)—he would know fully well what has transpired in Greater Miami—for a number of years. The struggles, the obstacles that were encountered before a district was organized. Finally when the semblance of a Zionist District did appear and propaganda work in the form of cultural meetings did take place, very frequently, despite the insufficiency of numbers as members of the District,—he and dozens of his kind who perhaps are not members begin to show their true character by attempting to destroy instead of helping to build. The "writer" harps on the rights of his pet organization to declare itself in all Synagogues during the High Holiday season without mentioning the necessity of Zionist work in our midst in view of what transpires today on the Jewish horizon. Perhaps he knows that the Rabbis of Greater Miami are vitally interested in Zionist activities and I have my suspicions t.iat the "writer" of that column does not particularly like Rabbis from his occasional comments about them, but prefers lay leaders since it "Pays" to be nice to them. After all what do the Rabbis accomplish materially to justify commendation from him. In fact they usurp some of his prerogatives and cause him not to shout so loudly. So I believe. Who is this gentleman anyway who "writes as I Please." RABBI MAX SHAPIRO. vocational guidance for times of economic distress. History proves that the majority does not begrudge a share of the world's goods to the minority when there is substance enough for all. But let there be a period of scarcity and the minority is ruthlessly pushed aside. Hence, in a business crisis, such as we are experiencing today, there is a great scramble for jobs in which the Jew is often the loser. He has slight chance if he enters a line of work for which he has no taste or special ability. Perhaps the Dear Rabbi Shapiro:— Come, come, dear Rabbi, you're somewhat peeved and I'm really surprised. First, because it isn't just the right thing to become peeved between Rosh Hashono and Yom Kippur and then you have established a fine reputation for keeping yourself on an even keel at all times. First the author of this column is not one individual. He's a composite of various people. You'll find if you study, that paragraphs differ and thoughts vary. Some of the articles have been written by some of your own congregants who don't accept everything as gospel. Of course Zionism is a splendid thing, it's something that you and I need. Just because the mass of the Greater Miami laity has stood aloof from the local District should convince you that something's wrong with the District organization, its officials or perhaps its methods. Why blame it on Zionism? Perhaps your cultural meetings have not met with the approval of the people of this District. Probably you have given them a diet which they do not approve. Why not be a good fellow and your seal self and consult the masses so that they may be satisfied and not you. You mean well, of course you do. Yet you are not infallible. Forget your own desires, unselfish though they may be, and give the people that which will bring them behind the idea you and I and every Jew wants to accomplish, the rebuilding of Palestine. My pet organization. n*r haps you mean "our" pet or-inization, for certainly you too are a champion of B'nai B'rith they treated you nicely the other day, didn't they, when they voted to help you in the very fine purpose of establishing a reference library at the University of Miami. Honestly dear Rabbi, you too appreciate the fine work of B'nai B'rith, internationally, nationally and locally in every phase of Jewish life, don't you? Certainly the fact that B'nai B'rith has nearly five hundred members in this area shows that Jewry as a whole, appreciates it, not just a handful. And again, dear Rabbi, can you show me as unselfish a group of men anywhere as B'nai B'rith possesses. Let's, dear Rabbi, be frank with one another. In these days we need each other. Everything the layman says and does is not perfect, neither is everything the Rabbis do, perfect. You, will admit that, I believe. Let's not be picayunish about this. Let's not be peeved. It pays to be nice to everyone, even for Rabbis. Let's be good boys, you too, dear Rabbi, and above all let's not get peeved. It's too hot in Florida for that sort of thing. And now really, wouldn't you too, like to know who writes these columns. Perhaps, perhaps it may be a Rabbi, at that. "WE," the Authors. best answer to our skeptic is that the economic depression, far from pushing vocational guidance into the background, has brought it to •he fore. Thi're was never such, active interest in the occupational adjustment of our youth among national and local agencies, general and Jewish, as there is today.

Miss Rose Berkowitz to Walter Mackauf. May they both live to see their child in great and abiding happiness. Plain Talk This evening, at my typewriter, I am speaking with Mr. Death, as one can easily do at a typewriter. I have just saluted him. I had been afraid of Mr. Death ever since I first encountered him in my remote childhood. I saw him first in the house of the little girl across the street who had been killed by a street car. I went over to look at her. She was H very white, for then the undertakers had not yet acquired the art by which they now give the dead the verisimilitude of life. It was then I first became acquainted with Mr. Death. The house smelled of tea roses of which there were several bouquets on the girl's coffin. Ever since whenever I have smelled tea roses, I have thought of Mr. Death. He was a grisly skeletonal specter that day in my youth. But now at my typewriter I have been saluting Mr. Death. I am one of those who privately applaud the friends of Jews (though in my public writings I deplore the practice of making much over those who befriend us. It seems too much like a grateful dog licking the hand of his benefactor. "Mr. Death," I said, "I thank you sincerely. You are the only friend Jews have in some places." Mr. Death, as he sits at my desk, is not the dreadful figure that I saw in my youth at the little girl's kouse. Mr. Death is a benign old gentleman with the kindest of (Continued on Page Five) JACKSONVILLE Notes Miss Sadie Solomon of th city announces the marriage of her Z tor, Mrs. Estelle Frank of N, York City and Baltimore, Md Harry Berman of Atlanta, G.

The report pointed out that more was raised in the first half of the current drive than in the entire'year of 1936 and that the figures exceeded the first half year total for 1937 by 1419.000. PLAIN TALK (BY AL SEGAL) (Continued from Page Four) eyes. He seems some gentle old father who is always ready to take the children in when they come home from their troubles in the hitter world. "Mr. Death," I said, "you are so fair and so brave against dictators. Even in Germany and Italy you make no discrimination against Jews. You let them die equally w i'h all other men." Mr. Death deprecated this praise He said he had always made it his policy to have one law for all men. He would never change that —not even in the countries where they have one law for Jews and another law for other people. He said he was no respecter of anybody; he treated everybody alike. "But, Mr. Death, you are the fnly sure refuge that Jews have left. You alone have peace and kindness and justice for them. I am writing this piece especially in your honor." Mr. Death answered that he always had tried to be fair. He wasn't going to take up the current practka that denlea Justice and equality as the right of some People. He would keep on treating everybody alike. People are people. "Oh, Mr. Death, only your graves are hospitable in Germany and Italy. You are all that Jews in Germany and Italy have left. Good Mr. Death! Civilized Mr. Death!" Mr. Death said his graves never would discriminate but would remain always wide open for all who came to them to give them rest and peace and kindness. Mr. Death winked. "And you know. he began confidentially. He leaned over as if to impart certain knowledge that must be private only to me. "You know I have graves even for Mussolin : and Hitler. I will let them in, too. The peace and comfort of my graves are for everyone—even for the most despised. I shall make no discriminations against Mussolini and Hitler." Mr. Death's countenance took on an aspect of moral grandeur. "You have changed so, Mr. Death, since I first saw you in the little girl's house and smelled the tea roses. Forty-five years ago!" Mr. t)eath said that I had changed, not he; forty-five years later I was looking at him with the eyes of wisdom. (Continued on Page Sis) MMBSMxffl PdRCO\& vr *OH& r 9.

PAGE SIX TM m TCTTIW rLORIDlAIT FRIDAY. 8EPT *n i^ THE Y. M. H. A. NOTES t (BX HARRY SCHWARTZ) Break your fast at the "YV Post Yom Kippur festival and dance Wednesday, October 5th. Preparations have been completed and all is in readiness for our Post Yom Kippur dance to be held on Wednesday night, October 5th at the American Legion Home, N. E. 6600 Biscayne Boulevard. A great many surprises are in store for all those who attend. Chester Alexander heads the eatertainment committee and this assures us of a real treat. Let us make this a real Holiday reunion after the Yom Kippur fast and urge all our friends to attend. Tickets are one dollar per couple. Chairman Nat Blumberg has secured an excellent orchestra. Billy Merlin ticket chairman tells me that according to advance sale of tickets one of the largest crowds to attend an affair in this area will be on hand to help the "Y" celebrate the advent of the Jewish year 5699. BORIS SCHLACHMAN UNVEILING THIS SUNDAY 2:00 P. M. The unveiling of the Boris Schlachman Memorial Monument will take place Sunday October 2, at 2:00 p. m., at Woodlawn Cemetery. The Rabbinical Association will offer appropriate religious services and Rabbi Abraham A. Kellner has been designated by the association to offer a euology in its behalf. Milton A. Friedman and E. Albert Pallot will offer eulogies in behalf of the "Y" Members are urged to assemble in front of the "Y" club rooms at 1:30 p. m., and then proceed in a body to the cemetery. SEVENTH ANNUAL BALL IS UNDER WAY The most talked of event t*. every member of the "Y" at the present time is the Seventh Annual dance to be held Sunday December 18th next, the first day of Chanukah. If the enthusiasm displayed at the past few committee meetings is any indication, then this affair promises to be the most outstanding event ever held in Miami. And we say this advisedly because the plans and preparations now being made by E. Albert Pallot, general chairman and his co-chairmen and committee men are so unusual. extraordinary and marvelous, that mere words cann t express them. This is going to be a different affair. The Civic Center has already been engaged for this big e\ent: members of the "Y" and its affiliated organizations are busy on the dance journal. As a matter of fact so much friendly competition is displayed that team captains were appointed to compote with each other. These are the teams: Team 1—E. Albert Pallot; Team 2—Milton Friedman; Team 3—Harry Schwartz; Team 4—Nat Blumberg; Team 5— Leon Lieberman; Team 6—Joseph Syman; Team 7—Y. W. H. A.; Team 8— Junior Y. M. H. A.; Team 9—Sioga Fraternity and Team 10—Arthur Blatt. The members of the various teams will be announced in future editions of the Floridian. Get on this bandwagon and help us attain our goal, a Jewish Community Center. If you want to hear the details of what this committee has accomplished, if you want to convince yourself that as long as the Jewish community has existed in Miami, nothing like it has ever been undertaken, then come to a monster mass meeting at the "Y" on Wednesday, October 12th, next. At that time Rev. C. Stanley Lowell, pastor of the Tamiami Methodist Church, will speak on "A Christian looks at anti-Semitism in Germany." Dr. Lowell has recently returned from Germany where he has learned first hand knowledge of conditions in Germany. His message is important and vital to every Jew in this community. There will be a very fine musical program and entertainment. All meetings of the "Y" have been cancelled for that evening in order to give every one an opportunity to attend. SCHEDULE OF EVENTS Sunday, October 2nd, 2:00 p. m., Boris Schlachman Memorial Services, Woodlawn Cemetery. Tuesday, October 11th, Cultural Meeting. Rabbi Mescheloff. topic: "Legalism in Israel." Wednesday, October 12, Monster mass meeting, Dr. C. S. Lowell will speak on "A Christian Looks at Anti-Semitism in Germany." Wednesday, October 5th, Post Yom Kippur Dance.

Aronovitz, and Gabriel M. Cohen, son of Mr. and Mrs. I. Cohen, of Louisville, Ky., were married in a private ceremony last week at 7:00 o'clock at the home of the bride's parents. Rabbi Adolph Burger, of Temple Rodoph Sholom, officiated in the presence only of members of the immediate families. The house was decorated with a profusion of palms, ferns and cut flowers. Mrs. M. Juster sang "O Promise Me" and "At Dawning" before the ceremony, accompanied on the violin by Harry Mogel, of St. Petersburg. The bride, who entered with her parents, was gowned in white satin, made on slender lines and worn with a short lace jacket. Her short veil of sheer silk net fell from a coronet of lace and seed pearls and she carried a shower boquet of bride's roses and lilies of the valley. Miss Pearl Buchman, of Plant City, maid-of-honor, wore a semiformal gown of pink lace, with matching accessories, and she carried a boquet of pink roses. Sol Aronovitz, brother of the bride, was best man. An open house reception after the ceremony was attended by a large number of friends. Out-oftown guests included Mr. and Mrs. Cohen, parents of the bridegroom, and Mr. and Mrs. Max Weinstein of Jacksonville, brother-in-law and sister of the bride. Mrs. Cohen, a native Tampan, was graduated from Hillsborough high school and received her L I. degree from the University of Tampa. She is a charter member of Sigma Theta Phi Sorority, a member of the Junior Hadassah and president of the Tampa branch of the National Council of Jewish Juniors. She has been connected with the faculty of Robert E. Lee school. Mr. Cohen received his A. B. degree from the University of North Carolina and is a member of Phi Alpha fraternity. He is editor and publisher of the Chronicle in Louisville, and the Jewish Post in Indianapolis, Ind. He is a member of B'nai B'rith and the Zionist organization in Louisville. CUBA DENIES NAZI STANDING Havana, (WNS)—The Havana provincial government has denied recognition as a legal political group to a new organization calling itself "The Cuban Nazi Party" o nthe ground that its application contains "legal defects." Described by its founder, Juan Prophiss, a journalist, as an organization backed by most of the business firms of Cuba who "fear the increasing strength of leftist factions," the party members wear white shorts and blue neckties as a uniform. Prohiss said "we chose the name of the party because Nazism signifies the opposite extreme of Communism, which we plan to fight mercilessly." At the same time he denied the party would adopt other Nazi principles, which he said are unsuited to Cuba. A nationwide political campaign to elect delegates to the Constituent Assembly is planned after a new party application has been submitted, Prohiss said. SPECIAL PRAYERS The first social affair of the season to be given by the Y. M. H. A., will be the Yom Kippur night dance to be held in the "Y" ballroom on Wednesday evening, October 5th, from 10:00 o'clock until the wee hours of the morn. This affair is an established institution at the Y. M. H. A., having first been conducted in 1935 and has been given annually ever since. Manuel Sanchez and his orchestra will supply the music for the occasion. The Jewry of Tampa and of all neighboring communities are expected to be well represented. New York, (WNS)—A special day of prayer for the victims of racial and religious oppression in Europe will be held on Sunday, November 19th, according to an announcement by the executive committee of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. Christians and Jews will join the prayer days. The idea for the prayer day came from a committee headed by the Rev. Dr. Lewis S. Mudge of Philadelphia who said he had received support from church representatives throughout the United States and Canada. GERMAN JEWRY ISSUES APPEAL Miss Ruth Finman is in the Municipal Hospital recuperating from an appendix operation. Mr. and Mrs. M. Verkauf of Tampa are visiting in New York. 12th at 12:30 p. m. May we count on you, and you, and you to help us and encourage us to further this work for the good of the community as well as Nationally and Internationally. Wishing you all a most happy and Prosperous New Year. Sincerely. ETTA W. LE VINE President. Berlin, (WNS)—"Look forward to new places where Jewish youth is preparing new homes, thereby giving hope for a new life to the older generation as well," was the Rosh Hashono message addressed to the Jews of Germany in a proclamation by the Reichvertretung der Juden in Deutschland, the central representative Jewish agency. "It is true," the manifesto said, "that it is a slow process and a difficult way, but everything durable requires time and demands construction stone by stone. We Jews are used to waiting. Patience is our strength." The message concluded with an appeal to Jews to stand fast in their faith and to educate their children in the spirit of the Jewish religion. "Let us be with God and God will be with us," the proclamation ended. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Swordlin of Tampa have returned from a visit to New York. Mr. and Mrs. Philip Eisenberg and Daughters WUfa All Their Relatives and Friends A HAPPY NEW YEAR (Continued from Page p iTe) "Thank God. the Jews still h,v you. Mr. Death.

If Mr. Mussolini can't be a" big a brute as Hitler he seems determined to be a more artistic one (if one can speak of art among the savages.)

Broderick repudiated the attack bht did not discharge the writer of it. BRIEFS By E. ALBERT PALLOT The B'nai B'rith extends to all our best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year. We are looking forward to an active year devoted to the promulgation of the fundamental principles of B'nai B'rith and real fraternalism. We need the help of every Jewish man in our community to the end that our lodge may grow greater and become more formidable, an irresistable force, protecting all of Miami's Jewry. This responsibility must be shared by every member of our order. That Sholem Lodge may continue to be recognized throughout our State, as a great and necessary part of our life, we need the assistance of all of our members to .-arry into execution our constructive program of student union activities, our anti-Defamation wori our citizenship, our A. Z. A., and our social service work. We hope our members can realize that we must have renewed activity in our lodge. We should embark at once upon an active Reinstatement Campaign and a drive against lapsation. The time is at hand for action! These matters cannot be delayed if sue cess is to be attained. We musl sell B'nai B'rith to Ben Briths a: well as non-Ben Briths. Every ef fort should be made to keep oui .nembers in the fold and to in crease our membership by the ad dition of new members of thi finest available talent in Miami. Storm Affects New England States Boston, (WNS)— Rosh Hashanah services in many storm-stricken New England cities were suspended in order that the synagogues might be converted into temporary refuge for victims of the hurricane, according to reports reaching here. In Springfield and Hartford, Connecticut, Synagogues opened their doors to provide sleeping qaurters for persons made homeless by the storm. In New London and Providence, where the storm was followed by a disastrous fire and flood, all Jewish inWith conditions as they are in the world about us, in the face of unrest here in our midst, it is th Juty of all Jews under the bannei >f B'nai B'rith to give and work ind utrive for the course of B'nai Brith to the end that we can cement a finer understanding between our people and the people >f our country. So far Ben Le Vine remains our ace member-getter. How about it Rudy Adler, Sam Halpert, Matty Bandler, Willy Friedman and all you other go-getting Ben Briths? Lets continue that spirit of enthusiasm and exuberance that has become so personified among Miami Ben Briths, that Sholem Lodge is still maintaining its exalted poin rapid fashion has become and sition of the finest and biggest lodge in our district. stitutions were put at the disposal of the authorities. Posts of the Jewish War Veterans and B'nai B'rith lodges mobilized their members to bring aid to those in distress. In Worcester, Mass., the new Beth Israel Synagogue was unharmed by the hurricane altho other buildings nearby were badly damaged. The Mount Pleasant oCuntry Club, a Jewish organization in Worcester, is reported to be a total wreck. Despite the Jewish holidays Jews joined with all other creeds in relief work. Boston escaped the brunt of the storm's force but some synagogues reported that succahs in the rear of their buildings were prematurely covered with branches as limbs of nearby trees, uprooted by the storm, were deposited by the | freakish wind on the bare tops of the succahs. Palestine To Study Food Problem Tel Aviv (WNS Palcor Agency) —With the international situation rapidly becoming graver, Jewish leaders of Palestine met here to study the effects upon Palestine in the event of war. Principal problem facing the committee of experts was the question of the food supply in the event of an emergency. Meeting for hours in the Tel Aviv Town Hall, the experts concluded that there were sufficient reserves of foodstuffs in the country for a prolonged period. It was also decided that in view of the fact that there was no fear that communications with Palestine would be cut off in the event of war, there was no occasion for anxiety that a famine might occur. University Head To Dismiss Niagara Falls,, N. Y., (WNS)— Any professor at Niagara University, a Catholic Institution, who defends theories of racial superiority will be instantly dismissed, the Very Rev. Joseph M. Noonan, president of the University, declared in an address to enrolling students. "I emphatically disagree with the unfounded allegations that any race possesses inherent qualifications that render its inevitably superior to any other race," Dr. Noonon said. "Consequently, I reserve the right to break, without discussion, the contract of any professor who dares either by word or in writing, on this campus or off the campus, to defend any of the following principles: "1.—That human races so differ among themselves by their inborn and unchangable nature that the lowest of them is further distant from the highest race of man than from the highest species of animal; 2—that vigor of race and purity of blood must be preserved and fostered at whatever consideration; moreover, that whatever conduces to this end is from that very fact virtuous and lawful; 3—' that all intellectual and moral qualities of man flow as from their chief source from blood relationships; 4—that the chief aim of education is to cultivate the nature of the race and to kindle the soul with a burning love of one's race as of the highest good; 5—that religion is subservient to the law of race and must he adjusted to it; 6—that individual men exist only through the State and for the State." Citing the academic success of, students of many nationalities Dr. Noonan asked: "Has any one here a silly, irrational, conceited persuasion that, because his ancestors have come from any so-called preferred stock, his success at Niagara University is assured?" The Niagara University president called his decision "drastic," adding: "But I feel that before God, before mankind, and before our country, it is justified." EXOTIC GARDENS. INC.

THE WORLD'S WINDOW -By LUDWIG LEWI80HN The Tiews expressed by Ludwig Lewisohn in his column are his own and do not necessarily reflect the policies or attitude of our publication. Reproduction in whole or in part strictly forbidden. Europe seethes. By the time these lines appear in print catastrophe may be upon the world, or else an uneasy truce may still be postponing the inevitable. Meanwhile Goering in Nuremberg has once more, clothed in a lie and despite himself, made the world issue clear. He spoke of Czechoslovakia and said: "This State without culture has Moscow behind it and its eternal Jewish mask." Now the Czechs are a highly cultured people; the vast majority of them are democratic liberals who have no traffic of ideas with the Stalinist Moscow of today, but it is true that this Czechoslovak State—this democratic state, this humane and tolerant and libertarian State which Thomas Masaryk, himself a great libertarian and a great friend of the Jewish people built—it is true that this state does bear the eternal Jewish mask. It is true, in other words, that the conflict in the world today is the conflict between the pagan idea and the Jewish idea of life. It is the conflict between the idea of Hagen in the Nibelungenlied, the blindly obedient murderous henchmen on the one hand and, on the other hand, the idea of human flexibility and dignity, of the sovereignty of the conscience, of mercy and freedom, as proclaimed and embodied in human living by Jeremiah. Goering is right. Wherever in the world the notions of human dignity and human worth and human freedom still prevail, there men do in very truth wear the Jewish mask. But they wear that mask at best, at deepest, not only upon their faces. They wear it upon their very hearts. The Jewish people, then, as an eminent Christian historian not only admitted but proclaimed the other day, has been selected by history not only for a supremacy in suffering. Its suffering is sign and symbol. It suffers because it embodies an eternal idea. It is persecuted everywhere in the world where the new paganism prevails or seeks to prevail, because it is a fact that the idea of paganism and the Jewish idea cannot coexist. Slavery and freedom, the free conscience and the slave-mind, the appeal to humanity and reason and the appeal to the mystic decisiveness of brute force—these principles and these beliefs and these methods of living cannot coexist. One or the other must conquer; one or the other must prevail. It is inevitable that the pagans should try to destroy the Jews who are the living embodiment of FREE CLASSES IN ENGLISH Classes in elementary English for adults are being held every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings from four until nine o'clock, in rooms 21 and 22, Miami Beach Elementary School. These classes are being conducted by the Florida Works Progress Administration at the request of the Miami Beach Parent-Teacher's Association, and are free to the public. Registration is invited at any time. the Judaeo-Christian-democratie idea and way of life everywhere. Grotesque examples multiply, such as the presence of an hundred Arab guests at the Nazi Darty-day in Nuremberg. Yet even in that there is a wild logic. Mohammed and his companions offered the peoples they conquered the choice between the Koran and the sword and the Caliph Omar destroyed the library of Alexandria on the Nazi principle that if the books agreed with the Koran they were superflous and if they differed from the Koran they were blasphemous. It follows from all this that on the Jewish people today there rests a double burden, a physical and a moral burden. Exposed to the extremity of suffering, of hardship, of injustice, it is yet the duty of the Jew, for his own sake and the sake of all mankind to embody as never before that eternal Jewish idea for the sake of which he suffers but which he must seek to carry across the gulfs of time if a tolerable life is to follow the horrors and confusions of this day in history. We bear the burden of the old, old covenant that Abraham made with the Eternal; we bear the burden of that immemorial blessing. The blessing is upon us; the blessing that on a thousand days of history and never more than on this day has seemed a curse. But it is a blessing. For only through it can the families of the earth be blessed. The blessing and the Jewish people and the democratic idea are in the deepest and ultimate sense one and indivisible. Yom Kippur (BY RABBI HYMAN GOODMAN) FRIDAY. 8EPT an ,-. On one occasion—the only one recorded in Jewish tradition—the Jews have not observed Yom Kippur. In the year when the Temple was dedicated by King Solomon and the Israelites the day of Atonement was not kept. (Mied Katan 9a. > ooo Yom Kippur can never fall on a Sunday, Tuesday or Friday, ooo At one time Yom Kippur was a day of great rejoicing and merriment for young people. Attired in white "the daughters of Jerusalem would go forth dancing in the vineyards. And what would they say? 'Young man. lift up your eyes and see what you are choosing. Look not at external beauty; look at the family.'" Taanit 26b; Lamentations Rabbah. opening chapter sec. 33.) ooo The Scriptural reading at the Minha service on Yom Kippur is from Leviticus Chapter 18 which deals with the different degrees of forbidden marriages. Why should this particular portion of the Torah be read on Yom Kippur? In the light of the above Talmudic statement it is evident that it served as a reminder to the young people to choose as a life partner one who would not fall within the forbidden categories of consanguinity. ooo Some Rabbinical authorities including Rabbi Joseph Karo, the author of the Shulhan Aruk, objected to the custom of using chickens in the performance of the ceremony of "Kapparot." Others including Rabbi Asher, and Rabbi Moses Isserles upheld this ancient custom. ooo Fish may be used as "Kapparet." 0 0 0 There are 13 Yom Kippurs in the year. Besides the Yom Kippur that comes after Rosh Hashanah. there is a "Small Yom Kippur" (Yom Kippur Katan) on the day preceding the beginning of every month (Rosh Hodesh.) It is observed by pious Jews as a special day of prayer and fasting, ooo According to the late Professor A. Z. Idelsohn, the tune of KJ Nidre did not originate In Sp J as popular belief would hv e fc It originated among the J m J Southern Germany. ooo In the first bars of Beetho*, | C Minor quartet, the 0 penuJ theme of Kol Nidre is re:ogn£ able (Profeseor A.

Special House Committee Investi-
gating Un-American Activities
dropped from its staff as of Sep-
tember 1st, Edward F. Sullivan,
its chief investigator, who had
been accused by Labor's Non-Par-
tisan League of engaging in anti-

Sullivan, Dies said announced
plans for the organization of a
"league for peace and American-
ism" which would f'ght Nazism.
Fascism and Communism and fight
for stronger immigration and de-
portation laws. The League, Dies

organization of a non-partisan
character to serve as "antidote to
foreignisms." He predicted it

Executive at which it was an-
nounced that the Agency has sub-
mitted a new labor immigration

CZECH JEWS
PLEDGE SUPPORT
Prague, (WNS)The entire ma-
terial resources of the Jewish pop-
ulation of Czechoslovakia as well
as of its manpower were placed
at the command pf the new mili-
tary government of Premier Jan
Syrovy as Jews joined with the
whole country in wildly enthusias-
tic patriotic demonstrations in
support of efforts to resist the dis-
memberment of the country. An-
swering a call to contribute to an
emergency war fund, the Jews of
the country gave in a measure far
beyond their proportion. Men and
boys of all ages are volunteering
by the thousands for military ser-
vice. From Jews abroad the wor
off'ce is receiving almost hourly
by phone, mail and cable offers to
join the Czech army. Jewish ref-
ugees from Germany and Austria
granted asylum in Czechoslovakia
ire in the van of these volunteer-
:ng to resist invasion.
Meanwhile, some 15,000 of the
22,000 Jews in Sudeten German
listricts have already left the area
to be ceded to Germany. About
1,000 of the refugees are in Prague
vhere they are adding to the bur-
den of the already harrassed ref-
ugee committees. The others are
being sheltered in nearby resort
towns. Plans are being made to
send many of the Sudeten refu-
gees to the sparsely settled towns
in the province of Carpatho-Rus-
s'a. Hastily equipped barracks
have been thrown open by the
government to house the refugees.
Two Jewish relief committees are
working day and night to provide
for the emigres whose exodus from
the Suduten was speeded up by an
official announcement of the dis-
covery in an abandoned Sudeten
rvirtv headouarters at Duchov of a
complete list of Jews and Social
Democrats.
In all the Orthodox synagogues
of Prague special prayers are be-
ing said hourly for the preserva-
tion of the Republic. In some of
the smaller synagogues frequented)
mostly by elderly Jews Tilim is
being said and clothes are being
rent as if in mourning.
Polish and Hungarian Jews try-
ing to leave the country have been
denied visas by the Polish and
Hungarian consulates.

Repentance
We are still within the Penitential period. Yom Kippur
the most solemn day of the entire Jewish year will be with us
next Wednesday. Many will fast, many will simply go to the
synagogue to view the sights, and others will not even do that
much.
As a community we have much to be thankful for, and still
nrnch more to be repentant for. This is Jewish Education
month throughout the country. What have we in this area
done for Jewish education, youth or adult? Shall we repent
and be content, or shall we as true repentants determine to
rectify our errors and really do something for Jewish education
in a real constructive manner.
What have we done for Kashrus? Shall we be content
with agreeing to everything because it is expedient or shall we
repent and then determine to make Kashrus something that is
ral and not theoretical. Shall we permit people to get away
with everything that is unfair and unreal?
Our synagogues were crowded to capacity. The Miami
Jewish Orthodox Congregation held overflow services in a
residence across the street from the synagogue. The Beth Jacol
Congregation at Miami Beach was compelled to use its Talmud
Torah building to take care of the additional worshippers.
Beth David and Temple Israel all had capacity crowds. But
what about tho rest of the year? Shall we repent and realise
that Judaism is not *mply a three or two day religion?
Though perhaps we should be thankful for even that?
Miami should repent, and repenting, determine to be in the
forefront of everything worth while, everything constructive, be
that Jewish education, Charity, Bnai B'rith, Zionism or the
like. .__________
VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE FOR JEWISH
YOUTH
(BY MAX
The author of this column, a
recent graduate of Creighton
University and an expert in
guidance and personal problems,
is the director of organization
of the B'nai B'rith Vocational
Service Bureau.
Not long ago a skeptic said to
the writer: "111 tell you what vo-
cational guidance is. Vocational
guidance is the process of assist-
'"g an individual to choose and
prepare for an occupation in which
to be unemployed." There are
very many people who share this
viewpoint. They place great em-
phasis on the fact that 5,000,000
young people in this country be-
tween the ages of 16 and 24 are
out of school and out of a job. In
such circumstances, they say, vo-
cational guidance is meaningless.
They forget that 8,000,000 of
America's youth are employed.
They also forget that 4,000,000
others are still in school prepar-
ing for employment and that for

those 4,000,000 school youth the
present chances are at least eight
to five in favor of their finding

after graduation. Of course, we
must find occupation for the other
5,000,000. If we do not, American
democracy will be seriously im-
perilled. But that task is bound
up with the general problem of
economic reconstruction in Amer-
ica. The vocational guidance
worker necessarily performs his
duty within the limitations of the
existing economic order. His re-
sponsibility is to see that the
young people who do find jobs do
not become misfits in the occupa-
tional world. And what is a young
person who does not have a job to-

Thanks!
Monday, Sept. 26th, 1938.
Mr. J. L. Shochet,
Jewish Floridian,
21 S. W. 2nd Avenue.
Dear Sir:
I want to congratulate you
for your splendid work on the
Jewish Hour broadcast yester-
day.
I am not Jewish, but I tuned
in your program Sunday by acci-
dent and found it so unusually
interesting and inspiring that I
was forced to stay through to
the finish. Your news of Jew-
ish activities in charitable works
clearly presents the fine spirit-
ual side of the Jewish people.
More of those sood programs
will do much to erase some of
the false impressions that son:e
of the Gentiles in this area seem
to have of Jews.
I liked the straight forward
manner in which the entire pro-
gram was delivered. It was not
overdone or overtoned and the di-
rect deliberation in your presen-
tation of news and announce-
ments was a pleasure to hear.
Again, congratulations. I'll
be waiting to hear you again
next Sunday.
Yours truly,
FOHEST D. FREELAND.

A STATEMENT
September 27, 1938.
Dear Mr. Shochet:
We enjoyed immensely your elo-
quent talk on the radio this Sun-
day morning. The Hebrew records
played were as timely as they
were good to hear. My heartiest
wishes for a very happy and pros-
perous New Year.
Faithfully yours,
THE SPINOZA GROUP,
Dr. A. Wolfson.
occupational adjustment.
The 5,000,000 young people who
are out of school and unemployed
today are not the same 5,000,000
who will be unemployed tomor-
row. The number of unemployed
youth may be the same or even
greater, but the individuals in that
category will be different. We do
not know today who will have a
job tomorrow and who will not,
nor how long in each case. There-
fore, we must see to it that all
youth comes under the influence
of vocational guidance. The very
fact that youth is today suffering
an era of joblessness makes the
need for vocational direction more
imperative.
Abe Cohen, who has never had
the benefit of adequate vocational
counseling, is a shoe clerk in a
department store. Abe has an in-
troverted personality and loses
many sales for the store. His
heart not being in his work, he is
unhappy and causes discontent
among his fellow-employees. Abe's
boss curses Abe under his breath
and mutters that if times were not
so prosperous and shoe clerks so
hard to get, he would get rid of
the fellow in a minute. Then comes
the depression, and the depart-
ment store, finding itself with
more shoe clerks than it needs,
picks Abe Cohen as the first man
to be let out. When business con-
ditions are favorable and there is
a great demand for workers, even
those who are not fitted for the
particular occupations in which
they are engaged may be able to
hold their jobs. But when the eco-
nomic baremeter falls and there is
a corresponding decline in the de-
mand for labor, the first workers
to be thrown out of employment
are the vocational misfits.
Jewish youth certainly needs
That gentleman who writes un-
der the lengthy pseudonym"I
Write as I Please" in the Jewish
Floridian, labors under the impres-
sion that he is quite great and out-
standing because of his frinkness
and "watch-doggedness" relative
to Jewish matters in this commu-
nity of ours. He or she has seen
fit to criticize grandiloquently ev-
erything that does not appeal to
his sense of propriety, arid of
course, he is always correct in his
observations. So he thinks.
He is the "Beth-Din She! Ma-
taw" and perhaps "Shel Maalow"
as well, namely,he is the criter-
ion on all matters Jewish. So it
appears when one reads his column
(if one takes the patience to do
so) whereby he attacks organiza-
tions with which he is not identi-
fied or has no say, but beautifully
pictures the one organization with
which he is interwoven. One would
imagine that he is a most ardent
Zionist and co-patriot of Zionist
endeavors when he takes the Zion-
ist District to task for not being
active. If he were hones; with
himself and impartial (as a writer
should be)he would know fully
well what has transpired in Great-
er Miamifor a number of years.
The struggles, the obstacles that
were encountered before a district
was organized. Finally when the
semblance of a Zionist District did
appear and propaganda work in
the form of cultural meetings did
take place, very frequently, despite
the insufficiency of numbers as
members of the District,he and
dozens of his kind who perhaps
are not members begin to show
their true character by attempting
to destroy instead of helping to
build.
The "writer" harps on the rights
of his pet organization to declare
itself in all Synagogues during the
High Holiday season without men-
tioning the necessity of Zionist
work in our midst in view of what
transpires today on the Jewish
horizon.
Perhaps he knows that the Rab-
bis of Greater Miami are vitally
interested in Zionist activities and
I have my suspicions t.iat the
"writer" of that column does not
particularly like Rabbis from his
occasional comments about them,
but prefers lay leaders since it
"Pays" to be nice to them. After
all what do the Rabbis accomplish
materially to justify commenda-
tion from him. In fact they usurp
some of his prerogatives and cause
him not to shout so loudly. So I
believe.
Who is this gentleman anyway
who "writes as I Please."

vocational guidance for times of
economic distress. History proves
that the majority does not be-
grudge a share of the world's
goods to the minority when there
is substance enough for all. But
let there be a period of scarcity
and the minority is ruthlessly
pushed aside. Hence, in a busi-
ness crisis, such as we are exper-
iencing today, there is a great
scramble for jobs in which the
Jew is often the loser. He has
slight chance if he enters a line
of work for which he has no taste
or special ability. Perhaps the
Dear Rabbi Shapiro:
Come, come, dear Rabbi, you're
somewhat peeved and I'm really
surprised. First, because it isn't
just the right thing to become
peeved between Rosh Hashono and
Yom Kippur and then you have
established a fine reputation for
keeping yourself on an even keel
at all times.
First the author of this column
is not one individual. He's a com-
posite of various people. You'll
find if you study, that paragraphs
differ and thoughts vary. Some
of the articles have been written
by some of your own congregants
who don't accept everything as
gospel.
Of course Zionism is a splendid
thing, it's something that you and
I need. Just because the mass of
the Greater Miami laity has stood
aloof from the local District should
convince you that something's
wrong with the District organiza-
tion, its officials or perhaps its
methods. Why blame it on Zion-
ism? Perhaps your cultural meet-
ings have not met with the approv-
al of the people of this District.
Probably you have given them a
diet which they do not approve.
Why not be a good fellow and your
seal self and consult the masses
so that they may be satisfied and
not you. You mean well, of
course you do. Yet you are not
infallible. Forget your own de-
sires, unselfish though they may
be, and give the people that which
will bring them behind the idea
you and I and every Jew wants to
accomplish, the rebuilding of Pal-
estine.
My pet organization. n*r
haps you mean "our" pet or-ini-
zation, for certainly you too are
a champion of B'nai B'rith.....
they treated you nicely the other
day, didn't they, when they voted
to help you in the very fine pur-
pose of establishing a reference
library at the University of Mi-
ami. Honestly dear Rabbi, you
too appreciate the fine work of
B'nai B'rith, internationally, nat-
ionally and locally in every phase
of Jewish life, don't you? Certain-
ly the fact that B'nai B'rith has
nearly five hundred members in
this area shows that Jewry as a
whole, appreciates it, not just a
handful. And again, dear Rabbi,
can you show me as unselfish a
group of men anywhere as B'nai
B'rith possesses.
Let's, dear Rabbi, be frank with
one another. In these days we
need each other. Everything the
layman says and does is not per-
fect, neither is everything the
Rabbis do, perfect. You, will ad-
mit that, I believe.
Let's not be picayunish about
this. Let's not be peeved. It pays
to be nice to everyone, even for
Rabbis.
Let's be good boys, you too, dear
Rabbi, and above all let's not get
peeved. It's too hot in Florida for
that sort of thing.
And now really, wouldn't you
too, like to know who writes these
columns. Perhaps, perhaps.....
it may be a Rabbi, at that.
"WE," the Authors.
best answer to our skeptic is that
the economic depression, far from
pushing vocational guidance into
the background, has brought it to
he fore. Thi're was never such,
active interest in the occupational
adjustment of our youth among
national and local agencies, gener-
al and Jewish, as there is today. _

Plain Talk

This evening, at my typewriter,
I am speaking with Mr. Death, as
one can easily do at a typewriter.
I have just saluted him.
I had been afraid of Mr. Death
ever since I first encountered him
in my remote childhood. I saw
him first in the house of the little
girl across the street who had
been killed by a street car. I went
over to look at her. She was H
very white, for then the undertak-
ers had not yet acquired the art
by which they now give the dead
the verisimilitude of life.
It was then I first became ac-
quainted with Mr. Death. The
house smelled of tea roses of
which there were several bouquets
on the girl's coffin. Ever since
whenever I have smelled tea roses,
I have thought of Mr. Death. He
was a grisly skeletonal specter
that day in my youth.
But now at my typewriter I
have been saluting Mr. Death. I
am one of those who privately ap-
plaud the friends of Jews (though
in my public writings I deplore the
practice of making much over
those who befriend us. It seems
too much like a grateful dog lick-
ing the hand of his benefactor.
"Mr. Death," I said, "I thank
you sincerely. You are the only
friend Jews have in some places."
Mr. Death, as he sits at my desk,
is not the dreadful figure that I
saw in my youth at the little girl's
kouse. Mr. Death is a benign old
gentleman with the kindest of

eyes. He seems some gentle old
father who is always ready to take
the children in when they come
home from their troubles in the
hitter world.
"Mr. Death," I said, "you are so
fair and so brave against dicta-
tors. Even in Germany and Italy
you make no discrimination against
Jews. You let them die equally
wi'h all other men."
Mr. Death deprecated this praise
He said he had always made it
his policy to have one law for all
men. He would never change that
not even in the countries where
they have one law for Jews and
another law for other people. He
said he was no respecter of any-
body; he treated everybody alike.
"But, Mr. Death, you are the
fnly sure refuge that Jews have
left. You alone have peace and
kindness and justice for them. I
am writing this piece especially in
your honor."
Mr. Death answered that he al-
ways had tried to be fair. He
wasn't going to take up the cur-
rent practka that denlea Justice
and equality as the right of some
People. He would keep on treating
everybody alike. People are peo-
ple.
"Oh, Mr. Death, only your graves
are hospitable in Germany and
Italy. You are all that Jews in
Germany and Italy have left. Good
Mr. Death! Civilized Mr. Death!"
Mr. Death said his graves never
would discriminate but would re-
main always wide open for all who
came to them to give them rest
and peace and kindness.
Mr. Death winked. "And you
know. he began confidential-
ly. He leaned over as if to impart
certain knowledge that must be
private only to me. "You know
I have graves even for Mussolin:
and Hitler. I will let them in, too.
The peace and comfort of my
graves are for everyoneeven for
the most despised. I shall make
no discriminations against Musso-
lini and Hitler."
Mr. Death's countenance took on
an aspect of moral grandeur.
"You have changed so, Mr.
Death, since I first saw you in the
little girl's house and smelled the
tea roses. Forty-five years ago!"
Mr. t)eath said that I had chang-
ed, not he; forty-five years later
I was looking at him with the eyes
of wisdom.

(BX HARRY SCHWARTZ)
Break your fast at the "YV
Post Yom Kippur festival and
dance Wednesday, October 5th.
Preparations have been complet-
ed and all is in readiness for our
Post Yom Kippur dance to be held
on Wednesday night, October 5th
at the American Legion Home, N.
E. 6600 Biscayne Boulevard.
A great many surprises are in
store for all those who attend.
Chester Alexander heads the ea-
tertainment committee and this
assures us of a real treat. Let us
make this a real Holiday reunion
after the Yom Kippur fast and
urge all our friends to attend.
Tickets are one dollar per couple.
Chairman Nat Blumberg has se-
cured an excellent orchestra. Billy
Merlin ticket chairman tells me
that according to advance sale of
tickets one of the largest crowds
to attend an affair in this area
will be on hand to help the "Y"
celebrate the advent of the Jewish
year 5699.
BORIS SCHLACHMAN UNVEIL-
ING THIS SUNDAY 2:00 P. M.
The unveiling of the Boris
Schlachman Memorial Monument
will take place Sunday October 2,
at 2:00 p. m., at Woodlawn Ceme-
tery. The Rabbinical Association
will offer appropriate religious
services and Rabbi Abraham A.
Kellner has been designated by
the association to offer a euology
in its behalf. Milton A. Fried-
man and E. Albert Pallot will of-
fer eulogies in behalf of the "Y"
Members are urged to assemble in
front of the "Y" club rooms at
1:30 p. m., and then proceed in a
body to the cemetery.
SEVENTH ANNUAL BALL IS
UNDER WAY
The most talked of event t*.
every member of the "Y" at the
present time is the Seventh An-
nual dance to be held Sunday De-
cember 18th next, the first day
of Chanukah.
If the enthusiasm displayed at
the past few committee meetings
is any indication, then this affair
promises to be the most outstand-
ing event ever held in Miami. And
we say this advisedly because the
plans and preparations now being
made by E. Albert Pallot, general
chairman and his co-chairmen and
committee men are so unusual.
extraordinary and marvelous, that
mere words cann t express them.
This is going to be a different af-
fair. The Civic Center has already
been engaged for this big e\ent:
members of the "Y" and its affi-
liated organizations are busy on
the dance journal. As a matter
of fact so much friendly compe-
tition is displayed that team cap-
tains were appointed to compote
with each other. These are the
teams: Team 1E. Albert Pallot;
Team 2Milton Friedman; Team
3Harry Schwartz; Team 4Nat
Blumberg; Team 5 Leon Lieber-
man; Team 6Joseph Syman;
Team 7Y. W. H. A.; Team 8
Junior Y. M. H. A.; Team 9Sioga
Fraternity and Team 10Arthur
Blatt.
The members of the various
teams will be announced in future
editions of the Floridian. Get on
this bandwagon and help us attain
our goal, a Jewish Community
Center.
If you want to hear the details
of what this committee has accom-
plished, if you want to convince
yourself that as long as the Jew-
ish community has existed in Mi-
ami, nothing like it has ever been
undertaken, then come to a mon-
ster mass meeting at the "Y" on
Wednesday, October 12th, next.
At that time Rev. C. Stanley Low-
ell, pastor of the Tamiami Metho-
dist Church, will speak on "A
Christian looks at anti-Semitism in
Germany." Dr. Lowell has recent-
ly returned from Germany where
he has learned first hand know-
ledge of conditions in Germany.
His message is important and vi-
tal to every Jew in this commu-
nity. There will be a very fine
musical program and entertain-
ment. All meetings of the "Y"
have been cancelled for that even-
ing in order to give every one an
opportunity to attend.

TAMPA
Miss Helen Aronovitz, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. H. Aronovitz, and
Gabriel M. Cohen, son of Mr. and
Mrs. I. Cohen, of Louisville, Ky.,
were married in a private cere-
mony last week at 7:00 o'clock at
the home of the bride's parents.
Rabbi Adolph Burger, of Temple
Rodoph Sholom, officiated in the
presence only of members of the
immediate families.
The house was decorated with
a profusion of palms, ferns and
cut flowers. Mrs. M. Juster sang
"O Promise Me" and "At Dawn-
ing" before the ceremony, accom-
panied on the violin by Harry Mo-
gel, of St. Petersburg.
The bride, who entered with her
parents, was gowned in white sat-
in, made on slender lines and worn
with a short lace jacket. Her short
veil of sheer silk net fell from a
coronet of lace and seed pearls
and she carried a shower boquet
of bride's roses and lilies of the
valley.
Miss Pearl Buchman, of Plant
City, maid-of-honor, wore a semi-
formal gown of pink lace, with
matching accessories, and she car-
ried a boquet of pink roses. Sol
Aronovitz, brother of the bride,
was best man.
An open house reception after
the ceremony was attended by a
large number of friends. Out-of-
town guests included Mr. and Mrs.
Cohen, parents of the bridegroom,
and Mr. and Mrs. Max Weinstein
of Jacksonville, brother-in-law and
sister of the bride.
Mrs. Cohen, a native Tampan,
was graduated from Hillsborough
high school and received her L I.
degree from the University of
Tampa. She is a charter member
of Sigma Theta Phi Sorority, a
member of the Junior Hadassah
and president of the Tampa branch
of the National Council of Jewish
Juniors. She has been connected
with the faculty of Robert E. Lee
school.
Mr. Cohen received his A. B. de-
gree from the University of North
Carolina and is a member of Phi
Alpha fraternity. He is editor and
publisher of the Chronicle in
Louisville, and the Jewish Post in
Indianapolis, Ind. He is a member
of B'nai B'rith and the Zionist or-
ganization in Louisville.
CUBA DENIES
NAZI STANDING
Havana, (WNS)The Havana
provincial government has denied
recognition as a legal political
group to a new organization call-
ing itself "The Cuban Nazi Party"
o nthe ground that its application
contains "legal defects."
Described by its founder, Juan
Prophiss, a journalist, as an organ-
ization backed by most of the bus-
iness firms of Cuba who "fear the
increasing strength of leftist fac-
tions," the party members wear
white shorts and blue neckties as
a uniform. Prohiss said "we
chose the name of the party be-
cause Nazism signifies the oppo-
site extreme of Communism, which
we plan to fight mercilessly."
At the same time he denied the
party would adopt other Nazi
principles, which he said are un-
suited to Cuba. A nationwide po-
litical campaign to elect dele-
gates to the Constituent Assembly
is planned after a new party ap-
plication has been submitted, Pro-
hiss said.
SPECIAL PRAYERS
The first social affair of the
season to be given by the Y. M. H.
A., will be the Yom Kippur night
dance to be held in the "Y" ball-
room on Wednesday evening, Oc-
tober 5th, from 10:00 o'clock until
the wee hours of the morn. This
affair is an established institution
at the Y. M. H. A., having first
been conducted in 1935 and has
been given annually ever since.
Manuel Sanchez and his orches-
tra will supply the music for the
occasion. The Jewry of Tampa
and of all neighboring communi-
ties are expected to be well rep-
resented.
New York, (WNS)A special
day of prayer for the victims of
racial and religious oppression in
Europe will be held on Sunday,
November 19th, according to an
announcement by the executive
committee of the Federal Council
of Churches of Christ in America.
Christians and Jews will join the
prayer days. The idea for the
prayer day came from a committee
headed by the Rev. Dr. Lewis S.
Mudge of Philadelphia who said
he had received support from
church representatives throughout
the United States and Canada.

Berlin, (WNS)"Look forward
to new places where Jewish youth
is preparing new homes, thereby
giving hope for a new life to the
older generation as well," was the
Rosh Hashono message addressed
to the Jews of Germany in a pro-
clamation by the Reichvertretung
der Juden in Deutschland, the cen-
tral representative Jewish agency.
"It is true," the manifesto said,
"that it is a slow process and a
difficult way, but everything dur-
able requires time and demands
construction stone by stone. We
Jews are used to waiting. Patience
is our strength." The message
concluded with an appeal to Jews
to stand fast in their faith and to
educate their children in the spirit
of the Jewish religion. "Let us
be with God and God will be with
us," the proclamation ended.

A HAPPY NEW YEAR
(Continued from Page piTe)
"Thank God. the Jews still h,v
you. Mr. Death. They still h*T,
the right to die."
I had been troubled about son*
thing I had read in the daily presj
and I guess it was for that reason
that I caused Mr. Death to com*
to this typewriter. From what I
had read in the press I gathered
that hereafter Jews in Italy would
not only not be allowed to live but
their right to die was not going to
be recognized.
Hereafter (it has been ordered)
no Italian newspaper may prjn,
the report of a Jew's death. It j.
to be as if he had never lived or
died.
Oh. I said, it seems that Mr.
Mussolini can not hope to compete
with his German collaborator in
numbers of Jews destroyed, sinrt
Germany has so many more Jewj
than Italy; therefore Mr. Musso-
lini is applying himself to the re-
finements of brutality.
If Mr. Mussolini can't be a" big
a brute as Hitler he seems deter-
mined to be a more artistic one
(if one can speak of art among
the savages.) But the compara-
tive viciousness of two brutes did
not concern me much.
What concerned me more was
that the death of a Jew wt- no
lenger to be recognized ir. Italy.
Suppose (I asked myself) this u
carried farther: Suppoi* Musso-
lini decrees that then an! there-
after Jews fchall not be allowed to
t!'e, just as they are no longer al-
lowed to go to pur lie s:hooli. or
to hold public office, or to engarj
in private business
Suppose, indeed, that Mr. Mus-
solini conceives the ultimate cruel-
ly: He announces that thereafter
Jews will not be allowed V escape
him by dying. Jews, he orders,
n-ust not die. The right to die
therewith is v ithdrawn fnm ill
Italian Jews.

BRIEFS
By E. ALBERT PALLOT
The B'nai B'rith extends to all
our best wishes for a happy and
prosperous New Year. We are
looking forward to an active year
devoted to the promulgation of the
fundamental principles of B'nai
B'rith and real fraternalism. We
need the help of every Jewish man
in our community to the end that
our lodge may grow greater and
become more formidable, an irres-
istable force, protecting all of
Miami's Jewry. This responsibil-
ity must be shared by every mem-
ber of our order.
That Sholem Lodge may contin-
ue to be recognized throughout our
State, as a great and necessary
part of our life, we need the assis-
tance of all of our members to
.-arry into execution our construc-
tive program of student union ac-
tivities, our anti-Defamation wori
our citizenship, our A. Z. A., and
our social service work. We hope
our members can realize that we
must have renewed activity in our
lodge.
We should embark at once upon
an active Reinstatement Campaign
and a drive against lapsation. The
time is at hand for action! These
matters cannot be delayed if sue
cess is to be attained. We musl
sell B'nai B'rith to Ben Briths a:
well as non-Ben Briths. Every ef
fort should be made to keep oui
.nembers in the fold and to in
crease our membership by the ad
dition of new members of thi
finest available talent in Miami.
Storm Affects
New England States
Boston, (WNS) Rosh Hashan-
ah services in many storm-strick-
en New England cities were sus-
pended in order that the syna-
gogues might be converted into
temporary refuge for victims of
the hurricane, according to reports
reaching here.
In Springfield and Hartford,
Connecticut, Synagogues opened
their doors to provide sleeping
qaurters for persons made home-
less by the storm. In New Lon-
don and Providence, where the
storm was followed by a disas-
trous fire and flood, all Jewish in-
With conditions as they are in
the world about us, in the face of
unrest here in our midst, it is th
Juty of all Jews under the bannei
>f B'nai B'rith to give and work
ind utrive for the course of B'nai
Brith to the end that we can ce-
ment a finer understanding be-
tween our people and the people
>f our country.
So far Ben Le Vine remains our
ace member-getter. How about it
Rudy Adler, Sam Halpert, Matty
Bandler, Willy Friedman and all
you other go-getting Ben Briths?
Lets continue that spirit of enthu-
siasm and exuberance that has
become so personified among Mia-
mi Ben Briths, that Sholem Lodge
is still maintaining its exalted po-
in rapid fashion has become and
sition of the finest and biggest
lodge in our district.
stitutions were put at the disposal
of the authorities. Posts of the
Jewish War Veterans and B'nai
B'rith lodges mobilized their mem-
bers to bring aid to those in dis-
tress. In Worcester, Mass., the
new Beth Israel Synagogue was
unharmed by the hurricane altho
other buildings nearby were badly
damaged. The Mount Pleasant
oCuntry Club, a Jewish organiza-
tion in Worcester, is reported to
be a total wreck. Despite the
Jewish holidays Jews joined with
all other creeds in relief work.
Boston escaped the brunt of the
storm's force but some synagogues
reported that succahs in the rear
of their buildings were premature-
ly covered with branches as limbs
of nearby trees, uprooted by the
storm, were deposited by the |
freakish wind on the bare tops of
the succahs.
Palestine To Study
Food Problem
Tel Aviv (WNS Palcor Agency)
With the international situation
rapidly becoming graver, Jewish
leaders of Palestine met here to
study the effects upon Palestine
in the event of war. Principal
problem facing the committee of
experts was the question of the
food supply in the event of an
emergency.
Meeting for hours in the Tel
Aviv Town Hall, the experts con-
cluded that there were sufficient
reserves of foodstuffs in the coun-
try for a prolonged period. It
was also decided that in view of
the fact that there was no fear
that communications with Pales-
tine would be cut off in the event
of war, there was no occasion for
anxiety that a famine might oc-
cur.
University Head
To Dismiss
Niagara Falls,, N. Y., (WNS)
Any professor at Niagara Univer-
sity, a Catholic Institution, who
defends theories of racial super-
iority will be instantly dismissed,
the Very Rev. Joseph M. Noonan,
president of the University, de-
clared in an address to enrolling
students. "I emphatically disag-
ree with the unfounded allegations
that any race possesses inherent
qualifications that render its inev-
itably superior to any other race,"
Dr. Noonon said. "Consequently,
I reserve the right to break, with-
out discussion, the contract of any
professor who dares either by
word or in writing, on this campus
or off the campus, to defend any
of the following principles:
"1.That human races so differ
among themselves by their inborn
and unchangable nature that the
lowest of them is further distant
from the highest race of man than
from the highest species of ani-
mal; 2that vigor of race and
purity of blood must be preserved
and fostered at whatever consid-
eration; moreover, that whatever
conduces to this end is from that
very fact virtuous and lawful; 3'
that all intellectual and moral
qualities of man flow as from
their chief source from blood re-
lationships; 4that the chief aim
of education is to cultivate the
nature of the race and to kindle
the soul with a burning love of
one's race as of the highest good;
5that religion is subservient to
the law of race and must he ad-
justed to it; 6that individual
men exist only through the State
and for the State."
Citing the academic success of,
students of many nationalities Dr.
Noonan asked: "Has any one here
a silly, irrational, conceited per-
suasion that, because his ancestors
have come from any so-called pre-
ferred stock, his success at Nia-
gara University is assured?" The
Niagara University president cal-
led his decision "drastic," adding:
"But I feel that before God, be-
fore mankind, and before our coun-
try, it is justified."

THE WORLD'S WINDOW
-By LUDWIG LEWI80HN
The Tiews expressed by Lud-
wig Lewisohn in his column are
his own and do not necessarily
reflect the policies or attitude of
our publication. Reproduction in
whole or in part strictly forbid-
den.
Europe seethes. By the time
these lines appear in print catas-
trophe may be upon the world, or
else an uneasy truce may still be
postponing the inevitable. Mean-
while Goering in Nuremberg has
once more, clothed in a lie and de-
spite himself, made the world is-
sue clear. He spoke of Czechoslo-
vakia and said: "This State with-
out culture has Moscow behind it
and its eternal Jewish mask."
Now the Czechs are a highly cul-
tured people; the vast majority of
them are democratic liberals who
have no traffic of ideas with the
Stalinist Moscow of today, but it
is true that this Czechoslovak
Statethis democratic state, this
humane and tolerant and libertar-
ian State which Thomas Masaryk,
himself a great libertarian and a
great friend of the Jewish people
builtit is true that this state
does bear the eternal Jewish mask.
It is true, in other words, that
the conflict in the world today is
the conflict between the pagan
idea and the Jewish idea of life.
It is the conflict between the idea
of Hagen in the Nibelungenlied,
the blindly obedient murderous
henchmen on the one hand and, on
the other hand, the idea of human
flexibility and dignity, of the sov-
ereignty of the conscience, of
mercy and freedom, as proclaimed
and embodied in human living by
Jeremiah.
Goering is right. Wherever in
the world the notions of human
dignity and human worth and hu-
man freedom still prevail, there
men do in very truth wear the
Jewish mask. But they wear that
mask at best, at deepest, not only
upon their faces. They wear it
upon their very hearts.
The Jewish people, then, as an
eminent Christian historian not
only admitted but proclaimed the
other day, has been selected by his-
tory not only for a supremacy in
suffering. Its suffering is sign
and symbol. It suffers because it
embodies an eternal idea. It is
persecuted everywhere in the world
where the new paganism prevails
or seeks to prevail, because it is
a fact that the idea of paganism
and the Jewish idea cannot coex-
ist. Slavery and freedom, the free
conscience and the slave-mind, the
appeal to humanity and reason and
the appeal to the mystic decisive-
ness of brute forcethese princi-
ples and these beliefs and these
methods of living cannot coexist.
One or the other must conquer;
one or the other must prevail.
It is inevitable that the pagans
should try to destroy the Jews
who are the living embodiment of
FREE CLASSES
IN ENGLISH
Classes in elementary English
for adults are being held every
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday afternoons and evenings
from four until nine o'clock, in
rooms 21 and 22, Miami Beach

the Judaeo-Christian-democratie
idea and way of life everywhere.
Grotesque examples multiply, such
as the presence of an hundred Arab
guests at the Nazi Darty-day in
Nuremberg. Yet even in that
there is a wild logic. Mohammed
and his companions offered the
peoples they conquered the choice
between the Koran and the sword
and the Caliph Omar destroyed
the library of Alexandria on the
Nazi principle that if the books
agreed with the Koran they were
superflous and if they differed
from the Koran they were blas-
phemous.
It follows from all this that on
the Jewish people today there
rests a double burden, a physical
and a moral burden. Exposed to
the extremity of suffering, of
hardship, of injustice, it is yet the
duty of the Jew, for his own sake
and the sake of all mankind to
embody as never before that eter-
nal Jewish idea for the sake of
which he suffers but which he
must seek to carry across the
gulfs of time if a tolerable life is
to follow the horrors and confus-
ions of this day in history.
We bear the burden of the old,
old covenant that Abraham made
with the Eternal; we bear the
burden of that immemorial bless-
ing. The blessing is upon us; the
blessing that on a thousand days
of history and never more than on
this day has seemed a curse. But
it is a blessing. For only through
it can the families of the earth
be blessed. The blessing and the
Jewish people and the democratic
idea are in the deepest and ulti-
mate sense one and indivisible.
Yom Kippur
(BY RABBI HYMAN GOODMAN)
FRIDAY. 8EPT an ,-.
On one occasionthe only one
recorded in Jewish traditionthe
Jews have not observed Yom Kip-
pur. In the year when the Temple
was dedicated by King Solomon
and the Israelites the day of
Atonement was not kept. (Mied
Katan 9a. >
ooo
Yom Kippur can never fall on
a Sunday, Tuesday or Friday,
ooo
At one time Yom Kippur was a
day of great rejoicing and merri-
ment for young people. Attired in
white "the daughters of Jerusalem
would go forth dancing in the
vineyards. And what would they
say? 'Young man. lift up your eyes
and see what you are choosing.
Look not at external beauty; look
at the family.'" Taanit 26b; La-
mentations Rabbah. opening chap-
ter sec. 33.)
ooo
The Scriptural reading at the
Minha service on Yom Kippur is
from Leviticus Chapter 18 which
deals with the different degrees of
forbidden marriages. Why should
this particular portion of the Tor-
ah be read on Yom Kippur? In
the light of the above Talmudic
statement it is evident that it serv-
ed as a reminder to the young
people to choose as a life partner
one who would not fall within the
forbidden categories of consan-
guinity.
ooo
Some Rabbinical authorities in-
cluding Rabbi Joseph Karo, the
author of the Shulhan Aruk, ob-
jected to the custom of using
chickens in the performance of the
ceremony of "Kapparot." Others
including Rabbi Asher, and Rabbi
Moses Isserles upheld this ancient
custom.
ooo
Fish may be used as "Kappar-
et."

There are 13 Yom Kippurs in the
year. Besides the Yom Kippur
that comes after Rosh Hashanah.
there is a "Small Yom Kippur"
(Yom Kippur Katan) on the day
preceding the beginning of every
month (Rosh Hodesh.) It is ob-
served by pious Jews as a special
day of prayer and fasting,
ooo
According to the late Professor
A. Z. Idelsohn, the tune of kJ
Nidre did not originate In SpJ
as popular belief would hve fc
It originated among the Jm J
Southern Germany.
ooo
In the first bars of Beetho*, |
C Minor quartet, the 0penuJ
theme of Kol Nidre is re:ogn
able (Profeseor A. Z. Idelsohn.)
ooo
It was on Yom Kippur accordiJ
to tradition that Moses brought.
down the second Tablets of
Covenant.
ooo
The concluding phrase of
Yom Kippur service, Leshsnah _
bash Biyerushalayim (Next ye
in Jerusalem) is said even by
idents of Jerusalem,
ooo
The weather on Yom Kipp
according to an old Jewish sour
plays an important part in deter_
ining the nature of the new yWJ
"If Yom Kippur is cloudy the
tire year will be a good one.
there is rain in the morning bo
no rain in the evening then thJ
beginning of the year will hi unJ
