U.S.JEWSNOTTO LOSE PASSPORTS Berlin, (WNS)—German Jewi in possession of the American immigration viskd will not be affected by the new Naii order invalidating all paaporta held by Jews as of October 7th, United States Consul General Raymond H. Geist was assured by the Gestapo. He was told that Jews holding such visa would have their passports invalidated by stamping them with a large red letter "J" for Jew, about an inch and a half high on the first page of the passport. It is understood that all Jewish passports will be so marked in order to identify Jews as such wherever they go. This is a step long advocated by Julius Streicher, high priest of Nazi anti-Semitism, to make the world aware of the Jewish problem. AMI, FLORIDA. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1938 PRICE FIVE CENTS FEAR CZECHS MAY GO ANTNEWISH Prague, (WNS)—Predictions in the Czech press that the govrnm< nt of Premier Jan Syrovy will shortly alter Czechoslovakia's traditionally tolerant attitude toward the Jews and adopt measures to de-naturalize all Jews who entered %  h—* %  1 all in since 1918 have rreated — ilining approaching a panic in Jewish quarters. In the event that auch a policy is adopted, thousands of Polish and Roumarian Jews who were naturalized after 1918 will become stateless. Reports of an anti-Jewish attitude by the newly-established autonomous government of Slovak!* and the news that Germany has demanded the return of all German refugees from the Sudetenland, including anti-Nazis, have added to the growing anxiety among Jews. The Prague government la showing itself to be unconcerned regarding the fate of the Sudetenland refugees. Its attitude is that since England and France robbed the Czechs of the ability to resist Germany's demands, it is up to them to find a haven for the refugees. At the same time the Syrovy government ia none too anxious to admit the refugees to what remains of Czechoslovakia. Appeals to London and Paris regarding aid for the refugees having thus far gone unanswered, Prague is expected to eend them back to the Sudetenland. Meanwhile, the Prague government has commenced registering the property abandoned by the refugees. It is estimated that the holdings of the 22,000 Jewa who fled the Sudeten H valued at 600,000,000 Czech kronen ($40,000,000.) Jews Throughout World Aroused By Rumors Great Britain May Abandon Balfour Declaration London, (WNS)—Rumors that Great Britain is planning to abandon its plan to partition in Palestine, that Colonial Secretary Malcolm MacDonald is preparing to sponsor a face to face conference between Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency, and the Grand Mufti of Palestine, now in exile in Syria and other alarmist reports concerning the future of the Holy Land spread like wildfire through London after MacDonald informed the House of Commons that the report of the Technical Commission Partition • SENATORIAL GROUP TO • • SEE ROOSEVELT ON • • PALESTINE ISSUE • salem correspondent which declared that in the interest of restoring peace to Palestine, Britain must grant the majority of Arab demands. • New York, (WNS)—An un• • official committee of the Unit• • ed States Senate is preparing • to call on President Roosevelt • • to discuss with him the possi* • bility of official represents* • tion by the United States • Government to the British • Government against the re• • ported plan to halt Jewish im• • migration to Palestine, Sena• • tor Robert F.

The subject of the proposed conference is said to be a plan prepared by the foreign minister of Iraq, who Is now in London and who has already conferred with Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax and MacDonald. Dr. Weizmann is said to have been invited to a similar meeting. The iraqlan plan, which is supposed to have the approval of all the Moslem countries in the Near East, is reported to provide: 1— the end of political Zionism, which means the, tacit annulment of the Balfour Declaration; 2—Palestine to be declared an independent state with political control to pass from Great Britain to a Palestine parliament; S^Jews and Arabs to be guaranteed equal civil rights and the Jewish colonies to be accorded broad national autonomy; 4_Jewiah immigration entirely to be halted; 6-Jewish minor.ty rights in Palestine to be guaranteed by Great Britain. At the same time the London Times published a dispatch from ita JwuLondon, (WNS Palcor Agency) —As though to blast rumors circulating here about the adoption of a definite policy for Palestine's future, Colonial Secretary Malcolm MacDonald assured the House of Commons that no final decision would be taken until the House had had a full opportunity to discuss and pass upon it. He also emphasized that the government could not yet have adopted a policy since the report of the Woodhead Commission will not be in his hands before the end of October, and that no action upon the report can be taken before Commons reassembles in November. Previously MacDonald had told the House that the government, convinced that the security situation in Palestine has shown "serious deterioriation," has determined to send reinforcements of cavalry and infantry totalling in excess of 5,000 troops. At the same time he disclosed that he had summoned High Commissioner Sir Harold MacMichael (who flew from Palestine) to London to discuss with him the strengthening of the security position in Palestine. Outlining the extra precautions that were being taken for security, the Colonial Secretary said that an additional brigade has already been sent to Palestine and that two cavalry regiments and one battalion were now being dispatched, while three more battalions from India would arrive next week. Evidences that the government was moving swiftly to a determination of the Palestine question was seen in a series of important conferences here, one of them taking place in the Colonial Office. Foreign Miniater Swaidi of Iraq had a lengthy interview with Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax, to whom he is believed to have submitted a scheme for Palestine's future bearing the approval of King n>n Saud.

Under the new decree announced by the Fascist Grand Council families of Jews in these categories as well as Jews who fought for Fascism in its early days, are not affected by any anti-Jewish measures except those excluding Jews from the teaching profession. B'nai B'rith Observes John Hay Centennial Washington, D. C (WNS)— Two Jewish delegations were scheduled yesterday and today to call on Sir Ronald Lindsay, British ambassador, and Sec* retary of State Hull in connec* tion with the Palestine crisis growing out of reports that England intends to abandon the Balfour Declaration and halt Jewish immigration to the Holy Land.

The presentation was made fr B'nai B'rith by Philmore J. Haber, president of District Grand Lodge No. 2, as the climax of week-long celebration of the centennial of Hay's birth. Mayor Harold H. Burton, who acepted the bust for the city, issued a proclamation designating the period of October 2-8 as John Hay Week. Preceding the presentation the B'nai B'rith and the Jewish War Veterans held a memorial service at Hay's grave in Lake View Cemetery. any such suggested compromises will be firmly rejected, the Executive declared. "In view of rumored proposals that a solution for the Palestine problem will be found in the stoppage of Jewish immigration and in fundamental changes in the constitutional structure of the country," the manifesto read, "the Jewish Agency for Palestine declares unequivocally that the Jewish people reject any solution that would condemn them to a minority status in Palestine. The Jews are in Palestine 'as of right and not on sufferance.' "Wieir right to reconstitute their National Home in their historic country has been solemnly recognized and repeatedly reaffirmed by Great Britain to us and to the whole civilised world.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1938 We Musd Do Our Share The sooner we realize that "God helps those who help themselves" the far healthier will conditions in this country become so far as we Jews are concerned. The time for "sha-sha" has .ong passed out of the realms of reality. The time has come and it is here now when as American citizens interested in the fate of our country we must not only vigorously protest but t&ke definite action in every way possible. The Hamburg-American Line proposes to establish a line between Havana pnd Key West ostensibly to bring in the tourist trade from Cuba. You and I know that whenever any German ship has come into this harbor, we have been flooded with the vilest un-American and anti-Semitic literature. Money spent with this line will be sent to Germany to help bolster the finances of Hitler and his cohorts. Food will be purchased in Germany; men will be paid in German coin at the pitifullly low wagef they are noted for. American seamen, in excess of seven hundred, who are now employed by the, American line which more than adequately serves the traffic between the United States and Cuba, will be thrown out of work. What can we do? We can line up with the American Federation of Labor Seamen Union and other labor organizations, and direct the attention of the travelling public to the fact that Americans want nothing to do with Hitler and his boats. We can tell in words that will be definite and plain that those who desire to traffic with Hitler's Hamburg-American Line need not expect our business. We can tell this to travel agencies, carriers and the like. It is only fair that those who support oar enemies and lend them aid and comfort, be advised that we shall help and work with, and support those who work with us. Let us write our friends back North who expect to come to coce to Miami and to visit Cuba to be on the lookout at all time* and not to patronize any organization which in the least cooperates with the German Hitler Hamburg-American Line. You can do this now; and now is the time to do it. SOGIETK SPINOZA GROUP CON TIN UBS MEETINGS TV tenches 'Under the canopy on the lawn at 1059 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, were again fully occupied last Saturday afternoon when the group had their weekly session. Dr. Abraham Wolfson Itave the second In his course of twenty-four lectures on Spinoza: his life and philosophy. Quoting Heinrich Heine, Dr. Wolfson said: "All modern philosophers look through the glasses that the Jewish lense grinder of Amsterdam furnished for them. In reading Spinoza we gain the same impression as when we view Majestic Nature in ifs quiescence and peace. A foreat of towering trees, flowering branches in constant movement while the strong, immovable trunks rest firmly in the Eternal Earth." Next Saturday afternoon the Spinoza Group will meet again at 1069 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach. Dr. Wolfson will give the third lecture. Subject: "Spinoza's Influence in England." All are welcome. • • • REHEARSALS TO BEGIN Those desiring to Join the Jewish orchestra under the direction of Mr. A. Bramson are urged to attend rehearsals at Beth David Talmud Torah Hall every Tuesday and Thursda yafternoon from 4:00 to 6:00 o'clock. Arabs Threaten War Against Jews Damascus, Syria, (WNS)—A Moslem holy war against the Jews throughout the Moslem world was threatened by the Arab Defense Committee of Palestine in a telegram sent to Dr. Chaim Wefcmann president of the Jewish Agency, warning him of what will happen to the Jews if they insist on building a homeland in Palestine. Signed by Nabih el Azme, president of the Arab committee, the telegram said "your attitude will lead you and Jews of the East to the worst of calamities that have been written up to the present. If Britain resorts to war to defend you in Palestine, Britain cannot defend you in Arab nations and in all of the East. Arabs, even if they must be entirely annihiliated and cost they what may, will never permit you to establish yourselves nor become a majority in Palestine. You and your nation scattered over the entire world should save the life of the part which is now in Palestine and in other Arab and Eastern nations. Do not create circumstances which bring your troubles from the West to the East. Be satisfied with keeping your people who are already in Palestine. That is already a great good fortune for you. Let the Arabs treat you in their country as Omar treated inhabitants in Palestine." Omar was the second Moslem caliph who brought Palestine under Moslem rule after his capture of Jerusalem in 637 A. D. / Write As I Please It is unusual to tell the author of the weekly article, yet we advise you that last week's article was written by Carl Alpert of Boston, Mass. Christians Aid Jews In Palestine A plea was addressed today by cablegram directly to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain of Great Britain by more than thirty of the foremost Christian church and lay leaders in the United States urging the British Government not to abandon its pledges to the Jewish people for the establishment of a Jewish National Home in Palestine stressing the fact that the stoppage of Jewish immigration and the repudiation of the Balfour Declaration and the League of Nations Mandate would be tantamount to a violation of "a sacred trust in behalf of the Christian world." The cable to Mr. Chamberlain pointed out that the radical revision of Palestine policy now being considered by the British Government which would include the complete stoppage of Jewish immigration would be a cruel blow to many distressed Jews who look to "Palestine as their chief and almost sole hope." Not only would abandonment by Great Britain of her pledges to the Jewish world reduce them to despair, but such a course would be regarded as "a surrender to the forces of violence and hatred now sweeping the world," the Christian leaders declared. Included among the signatories of the message to Prime Minister Chamberlain were Bishop George Craig Stewart of Chicago; Bishop James E. Freeman of Washington, D. C; Bishop Ralph Spaulding Cushman of the Denver area; Bishop Paul Jones of Antioch College; former Governor Alfred E. Smith, District Attorney Thomas E. Dewey, George Gordon Battle and Bishop William T. Capers of the Diocese of West Texas, San Antonio, Texas. %  • A word of caution should be spoken at this time. In a number of local organizations election for the coming year will soon be held. It is high time that the members of an organization realize that those who seek honors without any intention on their part to work, should not be the recipient of these honors. Promises of work in the future should be judged of what work has been done in the past. The meeting of local heads of Jewish organizations called to discuss the sudden crisis in Palestine developed an astounding fact. The abysmal ignorance of current Jewish events by those who should know better is appalling in the extreme. May we suggest that instead of reviewing current fiction, some of our Jewish organizations and book clubs begin a series of lectures and study classes in current Jewish events. It is sorely needed. Simply because a Jewish boy or girl does not obtain a position he or she applies for is not in the least evidence of the fact that a firm pursues anti-Jewish policy. We Jews should and must realize that when we apply for work we do this simply on our ability to do the work required and nothing else. We may not be qualified for the particular position we desire and should understand this. Our rejection may be simply and solely because of this lack of ability and nothing else. Charges of anti-Semitism should not be made unless there is definite and indisputable proof. Some people never get tired of speaking. There is that insatiable desire to talk all the time. We wonder whether that is a physical or simply a psychological ailment. Shall the people be defrauded, common honesty be forgotten, laws be disregarded, simply because it may be the easiest way out. Strong language, you may say, yet we shall discuss this shortly. Those in business, trafficking with Jewish laws and ideals, are still governed by rules of decency. %  %  *-% % %  > ^B ^^^r • j%  ^H H w m BB^saB^. -, 58 I %  Wk** %  BBjIjB^^i^: <: I V It'9 7^ <

W. 13th Court; Phoeve -1tt COMMENTS It is in the nature of the Jew to be optimistic, hence we interpret the fine spirit prevalent throughout the High Holidays as indicative of more integrated spiritual year. All signs point toward the hopeful fact that many of our people are at last awakening to their obligations as Jews. We point with pride to the successful appeal made for a Talmud Torah building fund, towards which upwards of $1500 was pledged, also the very gratifying response to the membership appeal wherein 50 men and 35 ladies, Ken Yirbu, affiliated themselves with our growing congregation. For the latter a great deal of praise to our president. Mr. H. M. Drevich, as well as Mrs. Ida Buckstein, president of the Auxiliary. We are also very happy to report that Rabbi Kellner's plea for more intensive Jewish liv i n g throughout the entire year has not fallen on deaf ears, and that many people are cooperating with his campaign to bring religion back to the Jewish home. Thus there were twice as many Sukkos in private homes this year as compared with last year, and the number of Esrogim in the Synagogue also showed a considerable increase. HOSHANA RABA On Saturday night, traditional Tikkun Leil Hoshana Raba will be recited in the Synagogue commencing at 10:00 p. m. Services Sunday morning will be at 8:00 a. m., and a cordial invitation is extended to all. CHILDREN SIKKAS PARTY On Sunday afternoon, October 16th at 2:00 p. m., the annual Sukko party for the children of our Hebrew and Sunday School will be conducted in the spacious and beautifully appointed Sukkah of our congregation. Members of the Auxiliary will serve refreshments and a Sukkos play will be presented by the pupils of the Hechildren of the neighborhood and their parents to be with us, to avail themselves of the opportunity of this great and joyous festival. SHMINI AZERETH The eighth day of the festival will be ushered in with sundown services on Sunday, October 16th at 6:00 p. m. Services Monday morning will begin at 9:00 a. m., and at 10:15 Rabbi Kellner will preach on the subject of "God will not forget, it we remember." Memorial services will be held at 10:45 a. m., followed by the traditional prayer for Geshem. SIMCHAS TORAH Monday evening, October 17th at 7:00 p. m., will bring to us once more the fondly anticipated and much beloved Simcha Torah Service. Arrangements have been completed to provide each child with a flag, fruit and candy in the spirit of this joyous festival On Tuesday morning at 9:00 a. m. the services will start at 9:00 a m., and we cannot too strongly emphasize the need and importance of attending the services when parents have the occasion to impart vital religious teachings in manner vivid and poyous. HABANOTH NEWS Honoring the first anniversary of the establishment of the Miami Chapter of the Habanoth, Rabbi and Mrs. Abraham Kellner will be hosts to the entire group on Thursday, October 13th at 4:00 p. m., in the Sukkah adjoining their home. At this meeting Rabbi Kellner will explain the ceremonies and symbols of the festival while the girls of the club will present an entertaining program. This will be the first opportunity where mothers and daughters of the group will jointly celebrate a Jewish holiday together. Due to the widespread praise accorded the Habanoth program presented the Rabbinical Association Hour on the radio last Sunday afternoon, it was decided to present an anniversary concert in the synagogue on November 13th, of which more news will appear later. SUNDAY SCHOOL REGISTRATION Registration for the Sunday School will be held Sunday mornTHE Y. M. H. A. NOTES (BY HARRY SCHWARTZ) On Wednesday evening, October 19th, next, the Y. M. H. A. will celebrate National Jewish Education Week at its club rooms. An elaborate program is being arranged. This will include the \ presidents of the respective synaI gogues and temple and the mem! bers of the Boards of Education of the Talmud Torahs and Sunday Schools.

We are very proud of Matty Bandler (plug for June Dairies) He his done some marvelous work in getting new members and bringing them to the meeting.

Your columnist was instructed to present the high lights of the last meeting, inject a bit f levity, using the active members as puppets and here and there voicing his opinions. In the absence of Elry Stone, I who was called out of town on business, Brother Al Pallot took U*er the President's chair and I very ably conducted the meeting. I He has had a lot of experience as [President of the Y. M. H.

Lyons, of Windsor, Ontario. An active Ben Brith worker in Canada for lo these many years, who is visiting Irving Frmkel's hostelry on the Beach. "Popsie' was asked to say a few words. He turned out to be an orator, seventy-eight years of age, who still loves the ladies. We are greatly indebted to Irving Franke! and the Zukernick boys for bringing him over as every one enjoyed listening to and meeting him. Wt were very fortunate in havThe entertainment of the evening was developed by a dramatic presentation commemorating the One Hundredth Anniversarv of John Hav. Secretary of State under President Theodore Roosevdt. During the period of the Russian massacres, Mr. Hay very ably assisted the B'nai B'rith In securing this government's intervention on behalf of the Jews in Russia. The dramatic presentation depicted the appearance of Leo N. Levi, as president of the Grand Lodge, before John Hay and President Theodore Roosevelt. The speechei of each were presented to the audience, the part of Leu N. Levi being taken by the aut' or rf this column, that of John Hay by Sidney Segall and the part of Theodore Roosevelt by Louis Shocnet. Is there any truth to the rumor that the by-laws of the organisation are to be amended to provide A notable increase in the attendance at the meetings is evident. Although due credit must be given to the present administration for the conduct of the organization, nevertheless we can't gainsay the fact that the rage of anti-Semitism throughout the world has made every Jew conscious of his religion and has brought him home to the organizations that are doing such wonderful work in his behalf throughout the world. Only thru organized efforts can anything be accomplished in this modern age. Every man must join and every man must do his bit. Harry Simonhoff, through his efforts got the organization to vote $500.00 toward the salary of a Rabbi at the University of Florida. When some one objected to the fact that the amount was a little greater than that which this organization ought to bear on account of finances, Harry threatened to resign. One more word about Rabbi Zwitman. It seems that the youthful rabbi was doing a little digging. Poor thing, First—against the lawyers whom he complained ran the organization, thereby eliminating the rabbis. Maybe he is right. There is only one way you can tell—come to a B'nai B'rith meeting and some day we will take a vote on the subject. (Inadvertently left out of last week's article) was the following paragraph. Ike Levin holds too many offices, attends too many meetings, takes a hand in everything, does too many things, and above all is too bald-headed. 0 Do You Own Your Home?

Atsney phone l-sitl TAMPA NOTES gestion may seem to rulers and statesmen, the hope is quite unrelated to any decisions they may reach or plans they may concoct. This is due to the fact that under almost any form of government the statesman generally leads where people are inclined to follow; their decisions are in effect his decisions. The only exceptions to this rule are the terroristic governments, which suppress free thought, free speech, free assembly and free press. But these governments which are the worst enemies of civilization naturally do not come under consideration in the question of preserving it. If civilization depends on the people rather than on their leaders, the problem before us narrows down to the question of what social force existing today makes for the persistence of civilized life. Is there, in other words, any mechanism in our life, which could have saved the civilization of Greece and Rome from destruction? The answer which must be given by the student takes into account the whole range of history, rather than a part of it, must be: there is such a force. In inheres, however, not in any of these aspects of our civilization in which we usually take pride. It has nothing to do with our engines or the vast accumulation of our scientific information. These distinguish us from the ancients only in the degree of our power: they reflect no change in our character. They have increased our ability to destroy; not our desire to build and to preserve. The only force in the modern world which gives promise of permanence to civilization is the Prophetic Tradition, which expresses itself in the Occident in the forms of Judaism, Christianity and Mohammedanism. The creation of this tradition has contributed more than anything else that has occurred in history, to the security, the freedom, and the happiness of man; and may well be described as the turning point in the development of humanity.

Already this tradition has in one form or another reached half of the population of the world, fully a thousand million souls. But more than that, it has enabled the billion people who adhere to it to make unprecedented advances in Science and Learning; and only the impending world catastrophe can prevent the coming of a time when every man will be a disciple of the Prophets and a reader of the Scriptures. The achievement of the Prophetic Tradition in bringing about a deeper understanding of eth ; cs and religion must not conceal from us its profound importance in the history of Reason itself. When the world was shaken at the fall of Rome, civilization did not altogether disappear, culture survived in the Jewish Rabbinic academics, in the monasteries, and in the Islamic schools; all of which were prepared to rescue Civilization 1 through the Prophetic Tradition, their common parent. How they achieved this feat, and the significance of the events for our time, will be the subjects of our next discussions.

Buddy Myer of Washington, for instance, finished with a .338 batting average, far above Hank's .312. But Mr. Myer didn't bat out 58 homers—only 6. And Philly Weintraub, the Chicago boy who came through for Philadelphia this year. Phil, after a checkered career with five other big leaguclubs, finally hit his stride—an-' everything the pitchers threw hirr —for the dear old Phillies. Batting clean-up, Wefntraub smacker" National League pitching for a cool .316, and was the leading batsman on the Philadelphia team. Morrie Aronovich, a Superior, Wis lad who made good in the big time slumped considerably this season and came up with a .275 mark foPhiladelphia. However, Morrie l a hustling type of ball player, is well thought of in Philly and is a inch to bounce back in 1939. He followed Weintraub in the Philly batting order and gave the club a one-two Kosher-punch. Probably the most improved ball player in the entire Nat'onal League was Harry "the Horse" Danning, New York Giants' catcher. Harry was strictly a bench-warmer until the latter part of the 1937 season, when he stepped into Gus Mancuso's shoes. Since then, with only one brief interlude (and a strange interlude it was too,) he has been Bill Terry's regular catcher. This year Harry set a terrific tempo as a receiver. His handling of pitchers was superb and his batting was one of the items that gave the G'ants whatever power they had. He finished the season with a .307 batting average, a mark that stamps Harry as one of the best hitting catchers in the league. Freddy Sington. the one-time Alabama All-American tackle, and later and up-anddown boy with the majors, came back with Brooklyn and all he did in the late stages of the game was pound out 18 hits in 47 times at bat for a .388 average—best in the entire league. Of course, that doesn't mean Sington wins any prises. He didnt get to bat often enough for that, but it does signify great prospects for next year. little Goodwin Rosen, the Toronto product, finished his first season as a Brooklyn regular with major league record. But Harry won the game! He set Cleveland down with four hits while Feller was wild and walked enough men to lose the game 4-1. • Moe Berg Red Sox second string catcher, batted ,364 in 10 games. Another Jewish youngster named Feinberg reported to Philadelnh'a at the end of the season and was used as shortstop in a few Mines. Feinberg was with the 'earn in spring training at Biloxi Miss., but was sent away for more seasoning. He probably w-'ll he shipped out again next season, 'his time to a Class A. team. But keep your eye on him. And theres another Jewish youngster in the minors with great possibMities. He's Murray Franklin, a Chicago lad who played college ball at the University of Illinios. He signed a Detroit contract after completing college and was shipped to a Class D. league. This past season Murray, a great hitting shortstop, lead the league with a mark over .499. He is being hailed now as one of the finest big league prospects in the minors. Too young and inexperienced to make the big league grade, Detroit probably will send Franklin to its Class A farm team—Beaumont in the Texas League.

After the service the Sisterhood members under the chairmanship of Mrs. Engler will serve refreshments to the worshippers. Tuesday morning services will take place at 8:30. SUNDAY SCHOOL Registration for the Beth David Sunday School began last Sunday and will continue for two more weeks. Close to two hundred children have registered so far and it is predicted that Beth David will have the largest registration in its religious school since its existence. We urge parents to register at once for it may be necessary to close registration on account of the lack of facilities in accommodating more than three hundred children. This coming Sunday morning at 10:00 o'clock, the Sunday School children will celebrate the observance of the Feast of Tabernacles in the large Succoh or booth adjoining the synagogue. Beth David has erected one of the largest "Suceohs" in the country. It accommodates over 200 persona. The children will be served after the program by a Sisterhood com mittee.

I Can Prove It (BY BABBI HYMAN GOODMAN) On October 22nd, 1916, the Frankfurter Zeitung published an article on the Jewish question which in light of subsequent events reads like a prophecy come true. Here is an excerpt from that article: "Already it can be seen clearly that after the war two dominant trends will fight for the absolute rule in the interior of Germany. One will be the decidedly liberal trend. The other will be a reactionary, demagogic and ultra-nationalistic trend which, by its very nature, must also be antiSemitic and whose outspokenly Jew-baiting characteristics are alreadily noticeable." Miss Shirley Kaufman was honored guest at a party given last Monday by her mother. Mrs. J. Kaufman at their home. The party was given in celebration of Miss Kaufman's birthday anniversary.

as of October 7th, United States
Consul General Raymond H. Geist

was told that Jews holding such
visa would have their passports
invalidated by stamping them with
a large red letter "J" for Jew,
about an inch and a half high on
the first page of the passport.
It is understood that all Jewish
passports will be so marked in
order to identify Jews as such

long advocated by Julius Streicher,
high priest of Nazi anti-Semitism,
to make the world aware of the
Jewish problem.

FEAR CZECHS MAY
GO ANTNEWISH
Prague, (WNS)Predictions in
the Czech press that the govrn-
m< nt of Premier Jan Syrovy will
shortly alter Czechoslovakia's tra-
ditionally tolerant attitude toward
the Jews and adopt measures to
de-naturalize all Jews who entered
' h* 1 all in since 1918 have
rreated ilining approaching a
panic in Jewish quarters. In the
event that auch a policy is adopt-
ed, thousands of Polish and Rou-
marian Jews who were naturalized
after 1918 will become stateless.
Reports of an anti-Jewish atti-
tude by the newly-established au-
tonomous government of Slovak!*
and the news that Germany has
demanded the return of all German
refugees from the Sudetenland, in-
cluding anti-Nazis, have added to
the growing anxiety among Jews.
The Prague government la show-
ing itself to be unconcerned re-
garding the fate of the Sudeten-
land refugees. Its attitude is that
since England and France robbed
the Czechs of the ability to resist
Germany's demands, it is up to
them to find a haven for the refu-
gees. At the same time the Sy-
rovy government ia none too an-
xious to admit the refugees to
what remains of Czechoslovakia.
Appeals to London and Paris re-
garding aid for the refugees hav-
ing thus far gone unanswered,
Prague is expected to eend them
back to the Sudetenland. Mean-
while, the Prague government has
commenced registering the prop-
erty abandoned by the refugees. It
is estimated that the holdings of
the 22,000 Jewa who fled the Su-
deten h valued at 600,000,000

would be published at the end of
the month. The subject of the
proposed conference is said to be
a plan prepared by the foreign
minister of Iraq, who Is now in
London and who has already con-
ferred with Foreign Secretary
Lord Halifax and MacDonald. Dr.
Weizmann is said to have been in-
vited to a similar meeting.
The iraqlan plan, which is sup-
posed to have the approval of all
the Moslem countries in the Near
East, is reported to provide: 1
the end of political Zionism, which
means the, tacit annulment of the
Balfour Declaration; 2Palestine
to be declared an independent
state with political control to pass
from Great Britain to a Palestine
parliament; S^Jews and Arabs to
be guaranteed equal civil rights
and the Jewish colonies to be ac-
corded broad national autonomy;
4_Jewiah immigration entirely to
be halted; 6-Jewish minor.ty
rights in Palestine to be guaran-
teed by Great Britain. At the
same time the London Times pub-
lished a dispatch from ita Jwu-
London, (WNS Palcor Agency)
As though to blast rumors circu-
lating here about the adoption of
a definite policy for Palestine's fu-
ture, Colonial Secretary Malcolm
MacDonald assured the House of
Commons that no final decision
would be taken until the House had
had a full opportunity to discuss
and pass upon it. He also empha-
sized that the government could
not yet have adopted a policy since
the report of the Woodhead Com-
mission will not be in his hands
before the end of October, and that
no action upon the report can be
taken before Commons reassem-
bles in November.
Previously MacDonald had told
the House that the government,
convinced that the security situa-
tion in Palestine has shown "ser-
ious deterioriation," has determin-
ed to send reinforcements of cav-
alry and infantry totalling in ex-
cess of 5,000 troops. At the same
time he disclosed that he had sum-
moned High Commissioner Sir
Harold MacMichael (who flew
from Palestine) to London to dis-
cuss with him the strengthening
of the security position in Pales-
tine. Outlining the extra precau-
tions that were being taken for se-
curity, the Colonial Secretary said
that an additional brigade has al-
ready been sent to Palestine and
that two cavalry regiments and
one battalion were now being dis-
patched, while three more battal-
ions from India would arrive next
week.
Evidences that the government
was moving swiftly to a determi-
nation of the Palestine question
was seen in a series of important
conferences here, one of them
taking place in the Colonial Of-
fice. Foreign Miniater Swaidi of
Iraq had a lengthy interview with
Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax,
to whom he is believed to have
submitted a scheme for Palestine's

Cleveland, (WNS)A bronze
bust of John Hay, the late United
States Secretary of State, who de-
fended the Jews of Russia during
the Kishinev massacre and at the
time of the early Roumanian per-
secutions, was presented to the
city of Cleveland by B'nai B'rith
at an outdoor civic gathering -\t
the foot of the Lincoln Statute.
The presentation was made fr
B'nai B'rith by Philmore J. Haber,
president of District Grand Lodge
No. 2, as the climax of week-long
celebration of the centennial of
Hay's birth. Mayor Harold H.
Burton, who acepted the bust for
the city, issued a proclamation
designating the period of October
2-8 as John Hay Week.
Preceding the presentation the
B'nai B'rith and the Jewish War
Veterans held a memorial service
at Hay's grave in Lake View Cem-
etery.

"In view of rumored proposals
that a solution for the Palestine
problem will be found in the stop-

Jewish Agency for Palestine de-
clares unequivocally that the Jew-
ish people reject any solution that
would condemn them to a minority
status in Palestine. The Jews are
in Palestine 'as of right and not
on sufferance.' "Wieir right to

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1938
We Musd Do Our Share
The sooner we realize that "God helps those who help
themselves" the far healthier will conditions in this country be-
come so far as we Jews are concerned. The time for "sha-sha"
has .ong passed out of the realms of reality. The time has come
and it is here now when as American citizens interested in the
fate of our country we must not only vigorously protest but
t&ke definite action in every way possible.
The Hamburg-American Line proposes to establish a line
between Havana pnd Key West ostensibly to bring in the tourist
trade from Cuba. You and I know that whenever any German
ship has come into this harbor, we have been flooded with the
vilest un-American and anti-Semitic literature. Money spent
with this line will be sent to Germany to help bolster the fi-
nances of Hitler and his cohorts. Food will be purchased in
Germany; men will be paid in German coin at the pitifullly low
wagef they are noted for.
American seamen, in excess of seven hundred, who are now
employed by the, American line which more than adequately
serves the traffic between the United States and Cuba, will be
thrown out of work.
What can we do? We can line up with the American Fed-
eration of Labor Seamen Union and other labor organizations,
and direct the attention of the travelling public to the fact that
Americans want nothing to do with Hitler and his boats.
We can tell in words that will be definite and plain that
those who desire to traffic with Hitler's Hamburg-American
Line need not expect our business. We can tell this to travel
agencies, carriers and the like. It is only fair that those who
support oar enemies and lend them aid and comfort, be advised
that we shall help and work with, and support those who work
with us.
Let us write our friends back North who expect to come to
coce to Miami and to visit Cuba to be on the lookout at all
time* and not to patronize any organization which in the least
cooperates with the German Hitler Hamburg-American Line.
You can do this now; and now is the time to do it.

twenty-four lectures on Spinoza:
his life and philosophy. Quoting
Heinrich Heine, Dr. Wolfson said:
"All modern philosophers look
through the glasses that the Jew-
ish lense grinder of Amsterdam
furnished for them. In reading
Spinoza we gain the same impres-
sion as when we view Majestic Na-
ture in ifs quiescence and peace.
A foreat of towering trees, flow-
ering branches in constant move-
ment while the strong, immovable
trunks rest firmly in the Eternal
Earth."
Next Saturday afternoon the
Spinoza Group will meet again at
1069 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach.
Dr. Wolfson will give the third
lecture. Subject: "Spinoza's In-
fluence in England." All are wel-
come.

Those desiring to Join the Jew-

Arabs Threaten
War Against Jews
Damascus, Syria, (WNS)A
Moslem holy war against the Jews
throughout the Moslem world was
threatened by the Arab Defense
Committee of Palestine in a tele-
gram sent to Dr. Chaim Wefcmann
president of the Jewish Agency,
warning him of what will happen
to the Jews if they insist on build-
ing a homeland in Palestine.
Signed by Nabih el Azme, pres-
ident of the Arab committee, the
telegram said "your attitude will
lead you and Jews of the East to
the worst of calamities that have
been written up to the present. If
Britain resorts to war to defend
you in Palestine, Britain cannot
defend you in Arab nations and in
all of the East. Arabs, even if
they must be entirely annihiliated
and cost they what may, will never
permit you to establish yourselves
nor become a majority in Pales-
tine.
You and your nation scattered
over the entire world should save
the life of the part which is now
in Palestine and in other Arab and
Eastern nations. Do not create
circumstances which bring your
troubles from the West to the
East. Be satisfied with keeping
your people who are already in
Palestine. That is already a great
good fortune for you. Let the
Arabs treat you in their country
as Omar treated inhabitants in
Palestine."
Omar was the second Moslem
caliph who brought Palestine un-
der Moslem rule after his capture
of Jerusalem in 637 A. D.
/ Write As I Please
It is unusual to tell the author
of the weekly article, yet we advise
you that last week's article was
written by Carl Alpert of Boston,
Mass.
Christians Aid
Jews In Palestine
A plea was addressed today by
cablegram directly to Prime Min-
ister Neville Chamberlain of Great
Britain by more than thirty of the
foremost Christian church and lay
leaders in the United States urg-
ing the British Government not to
abandon its pledges to the Jewish
people for the establishment of a
Jewish National Home in Pales-
tine stressing the fact that the
stoppage of Jewish immigration
and the repudiation of the Bal-
four Declaration and the League
of Nations Mandate would be tan-
tamount to a violation of "a sac-
red trust in behalf of the Chris-
tian world."
The cable to Mr. Chamberlain
pointed out that the radical revis-
ion of Palestine policy now being
considered by the British Govern-
ment which would include the com-
plete stoppage of Jewish immigra-
tion would be a cruel blow to
many distressed Jews who look to
"Palestine as their chief and al-
most sole hope."
Not only would abandonment by
Great Britain of her pledges to the
Jewish world reduce them to de-
spair, but such a course would be
regarded as "a surrender to the
forces of violence and hatred now
sweeping the world," the Chris-
tian leaders declared.
Included among the signatories
of the message to Prime Minister
Chamberlain were Bishop George
Craig Stewart of Chicago; Bishop
James E. Freeman of Washington,
D. C; Bishop Ralph Spaulding
Cushman of the Denver area; Bish-
op Paul Jones of Antioch College;
former Governor Alfred E. Smith,
District Attorney Thomas E. Dew-
ey, George Gordon Battle and
Bishop William T. Capers of the
Diocese of West Texas, San Anto-
nio, Texas. -
A word of caution should be
spoken at this time. In a number
of local organizations election for
the coming year will soon be held.
It is high time that the members
of an organization realize that
those who seek honors without any
intention on their part to work,
should not be the recipient of
these honors. Promises of work
in the future should be judged of
what work has been done in the
past.
The meeting of local heads of
Jewish organizations called to dis-
cuss the sudden crisis in Palestine
developed an astounding fact. The
abysmal ignorance of current Jew-
ish events by those who should
know better is appalling in the
extreme. May we suggest that in-
stead of reviewing current fiction,
some of our Jewish organizations
and book clubs begin a series of
lectures and study classes in cur-
rent Jewish events. It is sorely
needed.
Simply because a Jewish boy or
girl does not obtain a position he
or she applies for is not in the
least evidence of the fact that a
firm pursues anti-Jewish policy.
We Jews should and must realize
that when we apply for work we
do this simply on our ability to
do the work required and nothing
else. We may not be qualified
for the particular position we de-
sire and should understand this.
Our rejection may be simply and
solely because of this lack of
ability and nothing else. Charges
of anti-Semitism should not be
made unless there is definite and
indisputable proof.
Some people never get tired of
speaking. There is that insatiable
desire to talk all the time. We
wonder whether that is a physi-
cal or simply a psychological ail-
ment.
Shall the people be defrauded,
common honesty be forgotten,
laws be disregarded, simply be-
cause it may be the easiest way
out. Strong language, you may
say, yet we shall discuss this short-
ly. Those in business, trafficking
with Jewish laws and ideals, are
still governed by rules of decency.

ABRAHAM A. K.ELLNKR. Rabbi
RABBI'S RESIDENCE: tit 6. W. 13th Court; Phoeve -1tt
COMMENTS
It is in the nature of the Jew
to be optimistic, hence we inter-
pret the fine spirit prevalent
throughout the High Holidays as
indicative of more integrated spir-
itual year. All signs point toward
the hopeful fact that many of our
people are at last awakening to
their obligations as Jews. We
point with pride to the successful
appeal made for a Talmud Torah
building fund, towards which up-
wards of $1500 was pledged, also
the very gratifying response to
the membership appeal wherein 50
men and 35 ladies, Ken Yirbu,
affiliated themselves with our
growing congregation. For the
latter a great deal of praise to our
president. Mr. H. M. Drevich, as
well as Mrs. Ida Buckstein, presi-
dent of the Auxiliary.
We are also very happy to re-
port that Rabbi Kellner's plea for
more intensive Jewish liv i n g
throughout the entire year has not
fallen on deaf ears, and that many
people are cooperating with his
campaign to bring religion back
to the Jewish home. Thus there
were twice as many Sukkos in pri-
vate homes this year as compared
with last year, and the number of
Esrogim in the Synagogue also
showed a considerable increase.
HOSHANA RABA
On Saturday night, traditional
Tikkun Leil Hoshana Raba will be
recited in the Synagogue com-
mencing at 10:00 p. m. Services
Sunday morning will be at 8:00
a. m., and a cordial invitation is
extended to all.
CHILDREN SIKKAS PARTY
On Sunday afternoon, October
16th at 2:00 p. m., the annual
Sukko party for the children of
our Hebrew and Sunday School
will be conducted in the spacious
and beautifully appointed Sukkah
of our congregation. Members of
the Auxiliary will serve refresh-
ments and a Sukkos play will be
presented by the pupils of the He-
children of the neighborhood and
their parents to be with us, to
avail themselves of the opportu-
nity of this great and joyous fes-
tival.
SHMINI AZERETH
The eighth day of the festival
will be ushered in with sundown
services on Sunday, October 16th
at 6:00 p. m. Services Monday
morning will begin at 9:00 a. m.,
and at 10:15 Rabbi Kellner will
preach on the subject of "God will
not forget, it we remember."
Memorial services will be held at
10:45 a. m., followed by the tradi-
tional prayer for Geshem.
SIMCHAS TORAH
Monday evening, October 17th
at 7:00 p. m., will bring to us once
more the fondly anticipated and
much beloved Simcha Torah Ser-
vice. Arrangements have been
completed to provide each child
with a flag, fruit and candy in
the spirit of this joyous festival
On Tuesday morning at 9:00 a. m.
the services will start at 9:00 a
m., and we cannot too strongly
emphasize the need and import-
ance of attending the services
when parents have the occasion to
impart vital religious teachings in
manner vivid and poyous.
HABANOTH NEWS
Honoring the first anniversary
of the establishment of the Miami
Chapter of the Habanoth, Rabbi
and Mrs. Abraham Kellner will be
hosts to the entire group on Thurs-
day, October 13th at 4:00 p. m., in
the Sukkah adjoining their home.
At this meeting Rabbi Kellner will
explain the ceremonies and sym-
bols of the festival while the girls
of the club will present an enter-
taining program. This will be the
first opportunity where mothers
and daughters of the group will
jointly celebrate a Jewish holiday
together.
Due to the widespread praise
accorded the Habanoth program
presented the Rabbinical Associa-
tion Hour on the radio last Sun-
day afternoon, it was decided to
present an anniversary concert in
the synagogue on November 13th,
of which more news will appear
later.

for Jewish Education. The pur-
pose is to foster, promote and en-
courage Jewish education among
the Jewish youth; to inculcate a
desire for Jewish culture among
1 Jews in general. Never before has
this event been observed in Mia-
mi. The Y. M. H. A., in sponsor-
ing this great event requests ev-
ery Jew in Miami to attend this
meeting.
On Tuesday evening, October 18,
the "Y" will have another of its
cultural meetings. James J. Mar-
shall, prominent Miami attorney,
will speak on a "Journey Through
Space." Mr. Marshall has made
a study of astronomy and his lec-
tures are interesting because he
uses no technical terms and speaks
so that his hearers will readily un-
derstand him and enjoy him. A
rare treat awaits those who will
attend.

The sociological historian can
hold out but one hope for the sur-

the meeting shall refrain from
smoking cigarettes while reading

We are very proud of Matty

He his done some marvelous work
in getting new members and bring-

The work of Ben Le Vine is so
excellent that no reference could
be made to any other worker and
his name omitted. Ben has a lot
of time on his hands and spends
the major portion of it working
for B'nai B'rith.

A word of explanation: this col-
umn is being written at the request
of Al Pallot, our genial Vice-Pres-
ident, who writes this column
weekly. Your columnist was in-
structed to present the high lights
of the last meeting, inject a bit
f levity, using the active mem-
bers as puppets and here and there
voicing his opinions.
In the absence of Elry Stone,
I who was called out of town on
business, Brother Al Pallot took
U*er the President's chair and
I very ably conducted the meeting.
I He has had a lot of experience as
[President of the Y. M. H. A.,
I which stood him in good stead,
I particularly when Rabbi Zwitma^
panted to make a speech (Rabbis
I fall them sermons) on a motion
I which was practically passed be-
fore the Rabbi rose to his feet so
li-'iaciously.

was asked to say a few words. He
turned out to be an orator, sev-

loves the ladies. We are greatly

The entertainment of the even-
ing was developed by a dramatic
presentation commemorating the
One Hundredth Anniversarv of
John Hav. Secretary of State un-
der President Theodore Roosevdt.
During the period of the Russian
massacres, Mr. Hay very ably as-
sisted the B'nai B'rith In securing
this government's intervention on
behalf of the Jews in Russia. The
dramatic presentation depicted the
appearance of Leo N. Levi, as
president of the Grand Lodge, be-
fore John Hay and President Theo-
dore Roosevelt. The speechei of
each were presented to the au-
dience, the part of Leu N. Levi
being taken by the aut' or rf this
column, that of John Hay by Sid-
ney Segall and the part of Theo-
dore Roosevelt by Louis Shocnet.
Is there any truth to the rumor
that the by-laws of the organisa-
tion are to be amended to provide
A notable increase in the atten-
dance at the meetings is evident.
Although due credit must be given
to the present administration for
the conduct of the organization,
nevertheless we can't gainsay the
fact that the rage of anti-Semit-
ism throughout the world has
made every Jew conscious of his
religion and has brought him home
to the organizations that are doing
such wonderful work in his behalf
throughout the world. Only thru
organized efforts can anything be
accomplished in this modern age.
Every man must join and every
man must do his bit.
Harry Simonhoff, through his
efforts got the organization to
vote $500.00 toward the salary of
a Rabbi at the University of
Florida. When some one objected
to the fact that the amount was
a little greater than that which
this organization ought to bear on
account of finances, Harry threat-
ened to resign.
One more word about Rabbi
Zwitman. It seems that the youth-
ful rabbi was doing a little dig-
ging. Poor thing, Firstagainst
the lawyers whom he complained
ran the organization, thereby elim-
inating the rabbis. Maybe he is
right. There is only one way you
can tellcome to a B'nai B'rith
meeting and some day we will
take a vote on the subject.
(Inadvertently left out of last
week's article) was the following
paragraph.
Ike Levin holds too many offic-
es, attends too many meetings,
takes a hand in everything, does
too many things, and above all is
too bald-headed.

TAMPA NOTES
gestion may seem to rulers and
statesmen, the hope is quite unre-
lated to any decisions they may
reach or plans they may concoct.
This is due to the fact that under
almost any form of government
the statesman generally leads
where people are inclined to fol-
low; their decisions are in effect
his decisions. The only exceptions
to this rule are the terroristic
governments, which suppress free
thought, free speech, free assem-
bly and free press. But these gov-
ernments which are the worst ene-
mies of civilization naturally do
not come under consideration in
the question of preserving it.
If civilization depends on the
people rather than on their lead-
ers, the problem before us nar-
rows down to the question of what
social force existing today makes
for the persistence of civilized
life. Is there, in other words, any
mechanism in our life, which could
have saved the civilization of
Greece and Rome from destruc-
tion?
The answer which must be given
by the student takes into account
the whole range of history, rather
than a part of it, must be: there
is such a force. In inheres, how-
ever, not in any of these aspects
of our civilization in which we us-
ually take pride. It has nothing
to do with our engines or the vast
accumulation of our scientific in-
formation. These distinguish us
from the ancients only in the de-
gree of our power: they reflect no
change in our character. They
have increased our ability to de-
stroy; not our desire to build and
to preserve.
The only force in the modern
world which gives promise of per-
manence to civilization is the Pro-
phetic Tradition, which expresses
itself in the Occident in the forms
of Judaism, Christianity and Mo-
hammedanism. The creation of
this tradition has contributed more
than anything else that has occur-
red in history, to the security, the
freedom, and the happiness of
man; and may well be described
as the turning point in the devel-
opment of humanity.
In the spread of this tradition

and of the Bible in which it is in-
corporated, human culture for the
first time since the appearance of
man on the globe was able to
ranscend national and racial boun-
daries. Already this tradition has
in one form or another reached
half of the population of the
world, fully a thousand million
souls. But more than that, it has
enabled the billion people who ad-
here to it to make unprecedented
advances in Science and Learning;
and only the impending world cat-
astrophe can prevent the coming
of a time when every man will be
a disciple of the Prophets and a
reader of the Scriptures.
The achievement of the Proph-
etic Tradition in bringing about a
deeper understanding of eth;cs and
religion must not conceal from us
its profound importance in the his-
tory of Reason itself. When the
world was shaken at the fall of
Rome, civilization did not alto-
gether disappear, culture survived
in the Jewish Rabbinic academics,
in the monasteries, and in the Is-
lamic schools; all of which were
prepared to rescue Civilization1
through the Prophetic Tradition,
their common parent.
How they achieved this feat,
and the significance of the events
for our time, will be the subjects
of our next discussions.

While Greenberg and his tre
mendons homer-hitting naturally
gets No. 1 call, there were other
Jewish boys who did all right for
themselves in the season that just
closed. Buddy Myer of Washing-
ton, for instance, finished with a
.338 batting average, far above
Hank's .312. But Mr. Myer didn't
bat out 58 homersonly 6. And
Philly Weintraub, the Chicago boy
who came through for Philadelphia
this year. Phil, after a checkered
career with five other big leagu-
clubs, finally hit his stridean-'
everything the pitchers threw hirr
for the dear old Phillies. Bat-
ting clean-up, Wefntraub smacker"
National League pitching for a
cool .316, and was the leading
batsman on the Philadelphia team.
Morrie Aronovich, a Superior, Wis
lad who made good in the big time
slumped considerably this season
and came up with a .275 mark fo-
Philadelphia. However, Morrie l
a hustling type of ball player, is
well thought of in Philly and is a
inch to bounce back in 1939. He
followed Weintraub in the Philly
batting order and gave the club a
one-two Kosher-punch.
Probably the most improved ball
player in the entire Nat'onal Lea-
gue was Harry "the Horse" Dan-
ning, New York Giants' catcher.
Harry was strictly a bench-warm-
er until the latter part of the
1937 season, when he stepped into
Gus Mancuso's shoes. Since then,
with only one brief interlude (and
a strange interlude it was too,)
he has been Bill Terry's regular
catcher. This year Harry set a
terrific tempo as a receiver. His
handling of pitchers was superb
and his batting was one of the
items that gave the G'ants what-
ever power they had. He finished
the season with a .307 batting av-
erage, a mark that stamps Harry
as one of the best hitting catchers
in the league. Freddy Sington.
the one-time Alabama All-Ameri-
can tackle, and later and up-and-
down boy with the majors, came
back with Brooklyn and all he did
in the late stages of the game
was pound out 18 hits in 47 times
at bat for a .388 averagebest
in the entire league. Of course,
that doesn't mean Sington wins
any prises. He didnt get to bat
often enough for that, but it does
signify great prospects for next
year.
little Goodwin Rosen, the Tor-
onto product, finished his first
season as a Brooklyn regular with
major league record. But Harry
won the game! He set Cleveland
down with four hits while Feller
was wild and walked enough men
to lose the game 4-1. Moe Berg
Red Sox second string catcher,
batted ,364 in 10 games.
Another Jewish youngster nam-
ed Feinberg reported to Philadel-
nh'a at the end of the season and
was used as shortstop in a few
Mines. Feinberg was with the
'earn in spring training at Biloxi
Miss., but was sent away for
more seasoning. He probably w-'ll
he shipped out again next season,
'his time to a Class A. team. But
keep your eye on him. And theres
another Jewish youngster in the
minors with great possibMities.
He's Murray Franklin, a Chicago
lad who played college ball at the
University of Illinios. He signed
a Detroit contract after complet-
ing college and was shipped to a
Class D. league. This past season
Murray, a great hitting shortstop,
lead the league with a mark over
.499. He is being hailed now as
one of the finest big league pros-
pects in the minors. Too young
and inexperienced to make the big
league grade, Detroit probably will
send Franklin to its Class A farm
teamBeaumont in the Texas
League.

The concluding days of the fes-
tival of "Succos" will be ushered
in Sunday evening, October 16th at
sunset.
Monday morning at 10:00 o'clock
'Yiseor" or the memorial services
will ta%e place. Preceding these
services. Rabbi Shapiro will dis-
cuss the subject: "Should we fear
the Sentence of Death." Cantor
Louis Hay man will chant the lit-
urgic melodies.

ter the service the Sisterhood mem-

Mrs. Engler will serve refresh-
ments to the worshippers. Tues-
day morning services will take
place at 8:30.
SUNDAY SCHOOL
Registration for the Beth David
Sunday School began last Sunday
and will continue for two more
weeks. Close to two hundred chil-
dren have registered so far and
it is predicted that Beth David
will have the largest registration
in its religious school since its ex-
istence. We urge parents to reg-
ister at once for it may be neces-
sary to close registration on ac-
count of the lack of facilities in
accommodating more than three
hundred children.
This coming Sunday morning at
10:00 o'clock, the Sunday School
children will celebrate the observ-
ance of the Feast of Tabernacles
in the large Succoh or booth ad-
joining the synagogue. Beth Dav-
id has erected one of the largest
"Suceohs" in the country. It ac-
commodates over 200 persona. The
children will be served after the
program by a Sisterhood com
mittee.

I Can Prove It
(BY BABBI HYMAN GOODMAN)
On October 22nd, 1916, the
Frankfurter Zeitung published an
article on the Jewish question
which in light of subsequent events
reads like a prophecy come true.
Here is an excerpt from that ar-
ticle: "Already it can be seen
clearly that after the war two
dominant trends will fight for the
absolute rule in the interior of
Germany. One will be the decided-
ly liberal trend. The other will
be a reactionary, demagogic and
ultra-nationalistic trend which, by
its very nature, must also be anti-
Semitic and whose outspokenly
Jew-baiting characteristics are al-
readily noticeable."
Miss Shirley Kaufman was hon-
ored guest at a party given last
Monday by her mother. Mrs. J.
Kaufman at their home. The party
was given in celebration of Miss
Kaufman's birthday anniversary.
