Mass Meetings To
Be Held Nationally
-111-
PRICE FIVE GENTS
New York, (WNS)Country-
wide mass meetings to urge Great
Britain to keep the gates of Pales-
tine open to Jewish immigration,
will be held on Sunday afternoon,
October 28rd, in 460 communities
in response to a call issued here
by the Emergency Committee on
Palestine, representing every phase
of organized Jewish life. The
meetings will be addressed by
prominent Jews and non-Jews.
The decision to call the nation-
wide meetings was reached at a
conference of the Committee at
which the following organizations
were represented by their leaders:
American Jewish Committee,
American Jewish Congress, B'nai
B'rith, Jewish Labor Lommittee,
Hadassah, Zionist Organization of
America, Palestine Foundation
Fund, Jewish National Fund, Pal-
estine Economic Corporation, Poale
Zion, Mitrachi and the Council of
the Jewish Agency. The mass
meetings will be sponsored joint-
ly by these organizations.
Because of previously arranged
affairs the meeting in Greater
Miami area will be held on Mon-
day evening, November 7th, full
details of which will appear in our
next issue.
White House Is I
Swamped By Wires K,an Asks B'nai
B'rith Cooperation
JUSTICE BRANDEIS
SEES PRESIDENT
Washington, D. C, (WNS)
.lustice Louis D. Brandeis, who
had scrupulously avoided public
identification with any cause, Jew-
ish or otherwise since his appoint-
ment to the Supreme Court in
1916, precipitated a crop of sen-
sational rumors by making a per-
sonal rail at the White House
where he conferred with President
Roosevelt for more than an hour
shortly after a Jewish delegation
had left a memorandum on the
Palestine situation with Secretary
of State Hull. Justice Brandeis
went to the White House on the
President's invitation. Beyond that
the White House made no an-
nouncement of the purpose of the
unusual call.
It was believed, however, to be
connected with the general Jewish
"ituation abroad and with the Pal-
estine crisis. Besieged by report-
ers as he left the White House,
Justice Brandeis refused to an-
swer all questions. "Absolutely
not a word," he said. "Not a
thing to say on an ysubject"
As a result of his silence and
the failure of the White House to
explain rumors spread that he
went to the White House to dis-
cuss his resignation from the Su-
preme Court in order to accept
leadership of a world organization
to cope with the Jewish problem
in Europe. Another rumor had it
that influential American Jewish
leaders have appealed to hint to
i^sign in order to make hie inter-
national prestige available to his
People. It is unquestionably true
that Brandeis discussed the refu-
gee and Palestine problems with
Washington, D. C, (WNS)
More than 10,000 telegrams and
other messages from Jews and
non-Jews in all parts of the Unit-
ed States have already been re-
ceived at the White House and
the State Department urging the
United States Government to in-
tercede with Great Britain to keep
the gates of Palestine open to
Jewish immigration. Members of
Congress have been similarly de-
luged.
Among those sending messages
were all eight members of Con-
gress from Brooklyn; the entire
Congressional delegation; the 25,-
000 Jews of Rochester, N. Y.;
Governor George Earle of Penn-
sylvania; William Green, president
of the American Federation of La-
bor; a score of noted writers and
scholars, including Thomas Mann,
Albert Einstein, President Walter
Dill of Northwestern University,
President Ray L. Wilbur of Stan-
ford University, Oswald Garrison
Villard, President Robert G. Sproul
of the Universit yof California,
President A. C. Willard of the
University of Illinois and Presi-
dent Goyd Marvin of George
Washington University.
Additional messages were also
received from Hadassah, Junior
Judea, the Central Conference of
American Rabbis, Federation of
Polish Jews, Federation of Gali-
cian Jews.
Unusual in the history of the
United States was the receipt of
a letter by the anti-Defamation
Committee of the local B'nai
B'rith from the local Ku Klux
Klan asking the B'nai B'rith to
investigate charges against a
Jewish resident in Miami of
wrongdoing which had been sent
them.
In the letter from the local
Klan, they advised that they rec-
ognized the wonderful work of
the B'nai B'rith and expressed
confidence in the ability of the
B'nai B'rith to investigate and
take care of any charges against
Jews in this area.
The anti-Defamation commit-
tee acknowledged receipt of the
letter and took the proper action.
ANNUAL MEETING
WILL BE HELD
CATHOLIC HEAD
DEEPLY MOVED
RomeThe extent to which the
Pope is concerned by anti-Semitic
developments in Italy is indicated,
according to Vatican officials, by
a story appearing in the Belgian
newspaper, Le Soir, which de-
scribes him as weeping while de-
nouncing Italian anti-Semitism to
a delegation of visiting Belgian
Catholics. The published report
of the interview, which has not
been denied by the Holy Father,
states that he used the term "anci-
Semitism" instead of "racism,"
which is the term he usually em-
ploys in his public addresses.
In discussing "our poor Jewish
brothers," Le Soir quotes the Pope
as having said: "Remember thst
spiritually we are all Semites."
Though no one officially con-
nected with the Vatican will com-
ment or supplement the brief re-
port in Le Soir, they are agreed
that the publication is relaible
and trustworthy. They point out
that it is Impossible to get a con-
firmation of the story in tha: the
interview was a private one but
that had it caused displeasure to
the Pope or high Vaticin offi-
cials it would have undoubtedly
been discredited. t^________
the President but the Seven Arts
Feature Syndicate has been in-
formed on the highest authority
that no reference to Brandeis' res-
ignation was made during the
conference.
The annual meeting of the mem-
bers of the Jewish Welfare Bureau
will be held Monday evening, Oc-
tober 24th beginning at 8:00 o'clock
in the Flagler room of the McAl-
lister Hotel. Reports of the work
of the organization and its Free
Loan Fund will be presented by
Mrs. Sadye G. Rose, secretary and
Stanley C. Myers, president. De-
tails of the numerous cases sup-
ported by the Bureau will be given
to show the manifold activities of
the organisation in the community.
Election of officers will follow
the report of the nominating com-
mittee headed by Dr. Albert E.
Rosenthal. Others of the commit-
tee are Messrs. Mark Max, J. Ger-
ald Lewis, Benj. Le Vine and J.
Louis Shochet.
The members of the Jewish Wel-
fare Bureau, the Ladies Auxiliary
and the general public are urged
to attend.
LAB0R PARTY
SUPPORTSZION
Houston, (WNS)The Ameri-
can Federation of Labor's conven-
tion recorded itself as favoring
keeping immigration of Jews to
Palestine open, in a resolution en-
dorsing telegrams to that effect
sent by President William Green
to Secretary of State Hull and Sir
Walter Citrine, chairman of the
British Trade Union Congress. The
A. F. of L., also reaffirmed its
boycott of German goods.

Catholic Official
Declines Relations
New York, (WNS)Dock Com-
missioner John McKenzie, a Cath-
olic, last week notified German
Ambassador Hans Dieckhoff that
as a Catholic, he would have no
social relations with Germans "un-
til the Reich returns to the path
of civilization in religious free-
dom." Mr. McKenzie made this
statement in withdrawing his
previous acceptance of an invita-
tion to attend ceremonies at the
launching of the German catapult
plane Nordwind at Port Washing-
ton.

REPLY TO ARABS
Atlanta, Ga.,A telephoned ad-
dress by James G. McDonald, for-
mer League of Nations High
Commissioner for refugees from
Germany, will be a striking fea-
ture of the regional conference of
the American Jewish Joint Distri-
bution Committee, Sunday, Octo-
ber 23rd, at the Atlanta Biltmore
Hotel, Harold Hirsch, of Atlanta,
regional chairman, announced to-
day.
Mr. McDonald, who as associate
editor of the New York Times is
well informed on international
problems .will speak from New
York but his vivid description of
the crisis facing oppressed Jews
in foreign lands will be broadcast
to approximately 400 prominent
Southern Jews attending the con-
ference.
Jerusalem, (WNS Palcor Agen-
cy)While Arab leaders were
threatening that unless the Jews
agreed to their demands they would
completely wipe out the Jewish .
... .. ., campaign chairman and vice-chair-
commumties of Palestine and the F _
man of the committee, Joseph C
As the Southerners set up a
permanent Southern organization
of the Joint Distribution Commit-
tee, Rabbi Jonah B. Wise, national
whole Near East,- the Jews of
Palestine declared that such mas-
sacres could only disgrace the
Arabs without in any way pre-
I venting the realization of Zionism.
At the same time Jewish lead-
| era offered to Arab leaders the
alternative of peace baaed on mu-
tual good will. Moshe Shertok,
head of the Political Department
of the Jewish Agency, cabled an
answer to the Palestine Arab De-
fense Committee, which through a
group of Arab leaders in Damas-
cus sent a cable to Dr. Chaim
Wei'zmann threatening the Jews
of Palestine and of the whole
world that unless they would im-
mediately desist in their efforts
toward further upbuilding of a
Jewish homeland in Palestine, the
Arabs of Palestine and the Near
East would declare a holy war and
kill all the Jews living there. This
warning was issued in conjunc-
tion with the Arab Interparlia-
mentary Congress which met at
Cairo, Egypt, over the weekend.
The Jewish leader declared:
"Zionism will not be deterred by
threats of killings. The firm stand
of Palestine Jewry despite the
Arab onslought of the last three
years bears eloquent testimony to
that fact. If the Arabs of neigh-
boring countries should resort to
the massacring of Jews, that
would not prevent the realization
of Zionism but would only bring
disgrace to the Arabs themselves
as did the killing and burning of
the women and children of Tiber-
ias, an act that will remain as a
shameful stain on the record of
the Arabs of Palestine. We see
the possibility of fruitful co-op-
eration throughout Palestine, em-
bracing the Jews and Arabs of
Palestine and of neighboring coun-
tries for the good of everyone- But
an essential condition for such co-
operation would be the recognition
of the basic rights of the Jewish
people in Palestine, the realisa-
tion of which could only be of
benefit to the Arabs. The return
of the Jews to Palestine is dic-

URGES UNITY
New York, (WNS)A unite*
American labor movement would
have sufficient prestige "to influ-
ence President Roosevelt to take
a direct stand with Hitler and
Mussolini and other world powers
against unjust persecution of
Jews," Daniel Tobin, president of
the Teamster's Union, the biggest
union in the American Federation
of Labor, declared in an interview
with International News Service.
Mr. Topln said he believed a re-
union of. the A. F. of L. and the
C. I. O. would create a labor voice
powerful enough to have that ef-
fect. On the basis of talks with
leaders abroad, Tobin said he was
convinced that if the President di-
rected to European nations anoth-
er dramatic appeal, similar to that
he sent out during the war crisis,
the pressure thus built up would
compel Hitler and Mussolini to
change their attitude toward the
Jews.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1938
VOLUME 11NUMBER 41
A LESSON IN GOOD WILL
Those of as who have lived in this Southernmost portion of
these United States for a long time have been proud of the
splendid spirit of good feeling that has existed between the
Jew and non-Jew of this area.
An exhibition of this good-will, we believe unparallelled in
history, and sincerely appreciated, was shown this week when
a charge against a Jew of alleged wrong-doing, sent to the local
Ku Klux Klan was referred by them to the B'nai B'rith. Re-
gardless of the merit1; of the organization, and the charges made
against them of extra-legal activities, some well founded and
others untrue, we believe this act on their part in this instance
is one we should appreciate. While the B'nai B'rith has never
set itself up as the mentor of the peoples' morals, it proposes to
advise and help guide the standards of high moral and ethical
conduct that the Jewish people have and always should follow.
It is an exhibition of confidence in the splendid ideals and
work of B'nai B'rith from fellow citizens not of our faith that
could well be emulated by our own co-religionists. The local
B'nai B'rith has never hesitated to do its duty in every field
of life and it accepts this vote of confidence as but an indica-
tion that its work is understood. It will not rest upon its
laurels. B'nai B'rith will continue to merit the plaudits of all
peoples, regardless of race or creed at all times.

MEETING
IS HELD
A meeting of considerable inter-
est to the community was that of
the President's Club of Greater
Miami, composed of presidents of
the Jewish organizations of this
city, which was held Wednesday
evening, October 19th at the home
of Mrs. S. H. Lutsky, president of
the Southeastern Region of Ha-
dassah and also president of this
club.
Among those present were Mrs.
Ida Buckstein, president of the
.Ladies Auxiliary of the Miami
Jewish Orthodox Congregation;
Mrs. Milton Travers. president of
Temple Israel Sisterhood; Mrs. B.
H. London, president of Beth Jac-
ob Sisterhood; Mrs. Sam Simon-
hoff, president of Hadasah; Mrs.
Irving Querido, president of Ju-
nior Hadassah; Mrs. Ida Optner,
president of the Ladies Auxiliary
of the Jewish Welfare Bureau;
Mrs. Isidor Cohen, president of
Chesed Shel Emeth and Mrs. Sid
ney Stepkin, representing the
Young Women's Hebrew Associa-
tion.
The evening was spent in dis-
cussing the major problems of the
local women's organisations nd
"In these days of distress, when
intolerance and extreme national-
ism are running rampant over the
world, we must be ever on the
alert to safeguard liberty in our
democratic country.
"Men and women, particularly
Jewish men and women can no
longer afford to stand on the side
lines and cheer. They must be
aware of the problem, think it
through unemotionally and act in-
telligently. They must align
themselves with the forces of free-
dom and justice both within and
outside of the Jewish group.
"At the present moment, one of
these forces is making an appeal
to the Jewish Women of America.
In 3.r.0 cities of the United States,
the National Council of Jewish
Women is waging a campaign to
increase its membership to 65,000.
Council has been in existence for
forty-five years and during that
time it has become an articulate
voice, raised for progress, justice
and humanitarian efforts.
"Council has a six point program
so broad and so inclusive that it
is calculated to appeal to every
Jewish woman everywhere. It con-
centrates on Service to the For-
eign Born, which includes every
phase of emigre adjustment, from
helping Americans to fill out affi-
davits to bring unfortunate rela-
tives to this country, to meeting
the new arrivals and helping them
adjust to a new world; Internation-
al Relations and Peace; Social
Legislation; Contemporary Jewish
Affairs; Social Welfare and Edu-
cation.
"Through study, action and ser-
vice, Council has gained the re-
spect of informed men and women
throughout the nation. It is the
only nation-wide organization com-
posed of a cross section of all
types of Jewish women working for
a fuller life and a better world for
the people of America. As such,
it deserves the interest and unfail-
ing support of the women of the
community.
"The Miami Section, National
Council of Jewish Women is co-
operating in this national drive
and has appointed its membership
committee which is now in action.
The Miami Section supports all the
above mentioned projects and has
been active in this work locally for
over fifteen years; besides taknig
action in all local civic projects.
We urge the support of the Great-
er Miami womanhood.
definite measures were taken to
establish unity and cooperation be-
tween them. Each president pre-
sented a five minute talk on her
platform and projects of her or-
ganization. Miss Einbinder of the
University of Miami, spoke on the
symphony concerts sponsored by
the University to be held this sea-
son and encouraged more partici-
pation on the part of the women's
organizations in attending these
concerts. One of the major fea-
tures of the coming season will be
a class in parliamentary law to
be conducted by Mrs. Isaac Levin,
who has been instructing classes
fer the presidents of all the P-T-A
clubs of this city.

INVITED TO
BE SPEAKER
Mrs. Max Dobrin, local Youth
Aliyah chairman, has been invited
to be one of the major speakers
at the Southeastern Regional Con-
ference of Hadassah to be held
in Atlanta, Ga., from January 14th
to the 17th. .._ .

I
BRIEFS
(BY E ALBERT PALLOT)
Dedicated to the enthusiastic
Ben Briths at the Miami-U. of
Florida football game at Gaines-
ville on Saturday, October 12, 1938
The younger contingent of the
B'nai B'rith were out in full force
to witness that unforgettable game
Let's see who was there, Oh Yes,
there was Al Pallot, Jack Abbott,
Harry Kaplan, Sidney Segal, Abe
Aronovitz, Stanley Myers, E. Max
Goldstein, Dr. Harold Rand, Dr.
Leonard Finn, Dr. Kupper. Paul
Marks, Morris Solomon, Eli Katz,
William Shayne, Al. Dubbin, Ar-
thur Friedman, Aaron Fair, Dr.
Augustine, Louis Heiman, Dr. Al-
bert Rosenthal, Leo Ackerman,
Nat Williams, Herbert Sher, Dr.
J. Alexander and "Bunny" Beld-
ner.
Did you read the newspaper re-
port of the University of Miami
Freshman who was injured on the
train enroute to the game? It
was our own Dr. Rand who gave
him first aid, wired the next town
for an ambulance, and later rode
into Gainesville with the sheriff,
no less.
Leo "Ketchup" Ackerman is a
marksman of the first waterHe
can take a spoonful! of catsup and
let someone have it at twenty
paces. If you don't believe it ask
himor better still you should ask
, now let's see, who was it any-
way? Actually he did pull a Wil-
liam Tell.
Which Happy Go Lucky mem-
bers visited the Florida Law
School after the game, and when
they discovered that they could
not get it, became angry and play-
fully removed notices, announce-
ments and records that were at
the entrance to the school. Suf-
fice it to say the naughty boys are
children of their Alma Mammy
University of Florida.
Several of the boys went over
to a swanky restaurant to have
dinner before the game. Upon ar-
riving there, they scanned the
menu very thoroughly, and decid-
ed on steak which was priced at
the enormous price of thirty cents.
Believe it or not, our own brother,
Bill Shayne inquired of the wait-
er whether the emporium had bet-
ter steaks at a higher price. The
reply was "that they sure had."
So Bill ordered one that cost
forty cents and when it arrived
the joke was on Bill as the steak
that he got was the same as the
rest of the boys got at thirty
cents.
Harry "I'll be Frank with You"
Kaplan, says that he isn't sure
whether he enjoyed the game. The
reason being that he bet last De-
cember that Florida would win this
year's game. Though he had a
change of heart when he arrived
at Gainesville and really wanted
Miami to win our good brother,
Sidney Segall would not have it
so Harry shouted his head off for
Florida. And all for"$26.00.
Little "itsy bltsy" Ida Optner,
preaident of the Jewish Welfare
Bureau Auxiliary, is a peach. Not
only was she at the station to
wave and kiss all the brothers
goodby, but she was also there to
welcome us back, Her, exuberance

LONG TIME RESIDENT
DIES HERE
Last Tuesday afternoon Mrs.
Annie Rappaport, long-time resi-
dent of this city, died at the Jack-
son Memorial Hospital following
an illness of several weeks. Fun-
eral services were held at the Mi-
ami Jewish Funeral Home Wed-
nesday afternoon in the presence
of several hundred friends with
Rabbi Abraham A. Kellner of the
Miami Jewish Orthodox Congrega-
tion officiating. Interment was in
the Jewish plot of the Woodlawn
Cemetery.
Mrs. Rappaport came to MWml
from New York with her husbind
and family and soon became active
in local communal affairs. With
her husband she helped organize
the Miami Jewish Orthodox Con-
gregation and was one of the foun-
ders of its Ladies Auxiliary which
she served as vice-president and
as a director from the time of its
inception. She was also a mem-
ber of the local Chapter of Ha-
dassah and the Ladies Auxiliary
of the Jewish Welfare Bureau. She
was known for her interest in the
underprivileged and in Jewish ed-
ucational work.
She is survived by her husband.
Max; a son, Oscar; two daughters
Charlotte, and Mrs. William E.

Yetta Cooper, of Brooklyn, N. Y.;
and four brothers, Louis and Ash-
er Soil of New York City; Jack
Soil of Chicago and Rubin Soil of
Los Angeles, California.

off to you. We really love you.
The concensus of the students
at the University was that they
would welcome a Rabbi in Gaines-
ville. All were very enthusiastic
about our student activities. The
$500.00 Harry Simonhoff request-
ed of our Lodge for this work and
which we authorized is the best
money we ever spent. Don't for-
get that these boys will become
the teachers of Jewry to the next
generation, and they must have a

Modern international relations
bear a singular resemblance to
those of the city states in the far
smaller Hellenic world. There is
the same desire for expansion by
the various states; there is the
same subservience of the mob to
the irresponsible demagogue; there
is even the same willingness to
risk war in order to maintain
party-ascendancy.
Yet an even c!oer analogy to
our life is offered by that of Rome
in the last days of the Republic
and during the period of the Em-
pire. This is not obvious from a
superficial reading of the history
of Rome, from a study of its mili-
tary achievements, the description
of its government administration,
or the story of its rulers. It is
only when we read of the intimate
life of the Romans, their economic
problems, the decay of their family
life, and the rise of religious con-
fusion among them, that we real-
ize that many pages of their his-
tory might almost be duplicated in
a modern metropolitan newspaper.
To take a striking example,
compare the frequent announce-
ments of complicated series of
marriages and divorces in our
press with similar series of inci-
dents recorded of the life of Rome's
nobility two thousand years ago.
It is recorded for us there that
Augustus, the founder of the Ro-
man Empire, first married Clodia,
and then married Scribonia who
had previously been twice married,
then for his third wife took Livia
who had previously been married
to Tiberius Claudius Nero. The
daughter of Augustus and Scrib-
onia, Julia, married first Marcel-
lus, then became the third wife of
Agrippa who had previously mar-
ried Pomponia and Marcella. Af-
ter her divorce Julia married Ti-
berius. Practically all of these Ro-
mans belonged to the small aristo-
cratic group from which was
drawn the early emperors.
But the resemblance between our
age and that of the later Romans
goes far deeper than the similarity
between such spectacular events.
It reaches down into the very fab-
ric of the body-politic. The Roman
slave system, which like our mod-

ern machines provided innumer-
able luxuries never before posses-
sed by man, also ruined the Roman
system of free labor. The large
entrepreneur, with thousands of
slaves to do his bidding, could eas-
ily drive the individual worker or
trader out of industry and com-
merce. There resulted a large
number of unemployed, whom the
Government had to support to
avoid revolution. Some if the em-
perors, realizing the gravity of
the situation, sought to amelierate
It by resort to inflation of the cur-
rency and various forms of gov-
ernmental supervision of industry,
especially agriculture. Certain dis-
tricts were forced to supply grain
for the needs of various urban
centers, particularly Rome. Fin-
ally, Constantine issued an edict
forbidding the peasants, who had
formerly been free, to leave their
farms, thus reducing them to vir-
tual serfdom and peonage.
But all of these measures play-
ed into the hands of the few; and
helped to hasten the ruin of the
middle class, the backbone of the
state. In the meantime, the spir-
itual decay of the Roman world
was showing itself by cynicism in
public affairs, by a falling birth-
rate, and above all by confusion in
religious life. The old traditions
were being swept away. They
were being replaced not by higher
concepts, but by degraded forms
of Egyptian and Asiatic worship.
The army itself was reflecting
the spiritual decay of Rome; its
soldiers were no longer recruited
from Italy, but from the distant
provinces, and above all from the
barbarians. It was clear that the
day would soon come when the
Barbarians, trained in the military
drill of Rome, would crush its em-
pire like a house of cards.
Thus, long before Rome was
attacked by the Teutonic hordes, it
had alreadyfor all intents and
purposesceased to be. As so
frequently happens, the enemy
met a people who had rendered
themselves defenseless; the walls
sank into the earth before the foe
even attempted to shatter them.
In the course of the fifth cen-
tury, the city which in its prime
had successfully resisted the force
and skill of Hannibal, was sacked
by the barbarians no less than six
times. With its fall there disap-
peared the last vestiges of world
culture. Roads were torn up and
left to ruin; ships were stlhk or
permitted to rot; magnificient
temples were destroyed; their sta
tuary was broken to pieces; an-
cient manuscripts were burned.
Within a few generations, the
learning of Plato and Aristotle,
the medicine of Hippocrates and
Galen, the mathematics of Archi-
medes and Euclid, the dramas of
Sophocles and Euripides, the com-
edies of Aristophanes, the astron-
omy of Ptolemy, had all been for-
gotten. The world was thrown
back a millenium and a half; once
more it found itself in the period
of David and Homer, but without
either psalmist or poet.
Had the imminent destruction
of cultural values been completed,
the fourteen centuries which have
elapsed since the fall of Rome
could hardly have sufficed to bring
us into the light of the twentieth
century. That the fall of Rome
resulted merely in the decline, and
not in the annihilation, of civiliza-
tion, was due to forces which
emanated from PalestineJuda-
ism, Christianity and Mohammed-
anism. The part which they play-
ed in the reconstruction of human
thought will be the subject of our
next discussion.

Plain Talk

To be a writer on Jewish af-
fairs in these times seems a small
occupation. In any event a Jew
writing or Jewish troubles (and
therl'seems "be little left to write
about but troubles) Is like a man
in the midst of a great conflagra-
tion worried about his watch which
he left in his room.
We are only a few people suf-
fering from Hitlera handful
amid the Czechoslovaks, the Aus-
trians and the multitude of other
peoples that still stand in the way
of his ambitions.
At least the tragic situation of
the world serves to giva a Jew
something of perspective. In the
recent years he has been made to
think of himself as some one cen-
tral around whom revealed all the
evil of the times, upon whom was
centered all the pain that authori-
tarians had to inflict.
Hitler was the Jews' own devil.
And. indeed, here and there could
be found a Jew who felt that Hit-
ler would be all right if only he
didn't persecute Jews. To such
Jews he seemed the right man for
a time in which the world required
strong handling. He knew how to
make an end of labor troubles; he
was not one to tolerate unions.
They said quite privately that a
Hitler (without anti-Semitism)
might be a good thing in the Unit-
ed States. The trouble was, they
said, that there was too much
democracy here an deveryhody had
something to say; too much pub-
lic opinion. These thoughts they
shared with a considerable body of
non-Jews, except that the totali-
tarian non-Jews were not so par-
ticular about having a Hitler with-
out anti-Semitism.
If one can speak of there being
any good at all in the recent
events it is that the Jew has been
about cured of his psychopathic
idea that Hitler is exclusively a
disease of the Jews. In fact, also
among large numbers of non-Jews
there has been an opinion that
Hitler was something that only
Jews suffered from. They could
look at him with a certain comfort
even, feeling sure that he was an
affliction that could never attack
them, since only Jews were aller-
gic to Hitler.
Liberated from the complex of
special persecution the Jew ought
to come to see that anti-Semitism
is a symptom of disease, not the
disease itself; that his own pain is
just a small portion of the bundle
of the pain of the world; that his
pain and its cure are not separate
from the poignant problem of man-
kind.
The Jew thus becomes again a
man of the world, not the little
fellow trembling in his self-im-
posed ghetto: he is one of the mul-
titude of the men of the world who
stand morally embattled against
the hordes that march with ty-
rants to trample down all that is
righteous and all that is decent and
clean and beautiful In civilization.
The Jew no longer stands alone
as a victim of persecution. The
world of righteous men stands
with him;, for the persecution has
spread td be an affliction of de-
mocracy.
The non-Jews who had believed
that Hitler could be tolerated be-
cause, after ah, he was the pain
only of Jews now diagnose him as
a loathsome diseaae that is
spreading over areas of the hn-
man family. Until lately he seem-
ed endemic only to Germany; to-
morrow or some other tomorrow
(or, perhaps already today if the
war has come) a multitude of the
youth of the world will be dying,
as of some plague, on the battle-
fields on account of him.
Jews (I among others) had been
fearful of the effect of the news
of anti-Semitism that has been ap-
pearing in the daily press.....
"Jews Ordered Out of Italy". .
"Jews Expelled from Public Of-
fice" ... We feared that such
news might be like evil seed fall-
ing on fertile minds in the United
States. But, since recent events,
I for one have come to believe in
an opposite effect of this news.
Since the recent events anti-
Semitism has taken on (I believe)
the evil smell of all the other man-
ifestations that the world despises
in Hitler: The brutal arrogance,
the falsehood, the ruthless will to
power, the robbery that masks un-
ashamed as statesmanship, the
gangsterism. Hitler's anti-Semit-
ism is seen to be of the same offal
with all thisjust a morsel in the
garbage of moral degradation.
Oh, here I am returning to the
matter of Jewish pain (a Jew is
always getting back to that)
though, as I said in the beginning,
our own pain has become minor in
the affliction of the world. Yea,
ours is the least of the current
tragedy. And, if before this Is
printed there is war, our pain will
be only like yesterday's forgotten
ache.
As kinsmen of mankind in suf-
fering the Jew must emerge from
the ghetto in which in recent
years he has immured himself,
saying, "I must be like some
mouse, neither seen nor heard,
never sticking my neck out."
He must be brave to join with
all men (and their numbers are
vastly increasing) who stand em-
battled for the defense of democ-
racy. Democracy no longer is the
more shibbolet hof politicians at
election time; it is remaining
shield of all liberties.
Not Palestine is our refuge, not
the rapt nationalistic dreams of
Jewish leaders playing at states-
manship. Impassioned speeches to
save Palestine seem absurd in the
nresence of the attack on the
blessed safety that multitudes of
Jews still have in democracy.
We look like ridiculous little
people trying to save ourselves on
some imaginary island of safety
in a time when the whole world
cries for succor.
When the world needs to he
saved for civilization we do not
look heroic in our futile effort to
save a little place for ourselves.

laws and historical background of
Israel, Rabbi Shapiro will conduct
such a study group in his study
from 10:30 to 11:30. This study
group will begin its work Sunday
October 30th. Parents of children
and friends of Beth David are ask-
ed to attend.
Sec. Ickes Opposes
Self-Made Ghetto
St. Louis, (WNSWews who
oppose the appointment of other
Jews to high public office in fear
that such appointments foster an-
ti-Semitism were denounced by
Secretary of Interior Harold L
Ickes as proposing a "self-made
ehetto." Speaking at a memorial
meeting for the late Justice Ben-
jamin N. Cardoso under the aus-
pices of Temple Israel Brother
hood. Mr. Ickes said "not a single
eossamer in today's web of anti-
Semitism can be traced to his pres-
ence on the bench. Respected, ad-
mired and beloved by all, his ac-
tions answered those who preach
Jkst the presence of Jews in pub-
Hfc 4s the cause of anti-Sem-
itism." Referring to the fact that
wme Jews opposed Cardozo's ap-
pointment on the ground that a
second Jew on the Supreme Court
would create further anti-Semit-
ism, Mr. Ickes said they "seemed
to forget that the coward who
runs away from his mortal enemy
justly forfeits the guerdon of the
brave." They proposed, in effect,
a self-made ghetto, and sought
the ear of President Hoover to
gain Presidential sanction for that
ghetto. These Jews were no less
blind in their opposition to pro-
gress than were the rich Jews in
democratic countries in Europe
when Fascism started its march
to power. Asserting that Jews
"are in the forefront of the fight
for progress and civil liberties,"
Mr. Ickes denied they were radi-
cals In the sense that they sought
to overthrow the government by
force or that they were "visionary
Utopians."

SOCIETY
LECTURE IS
GIVEN
"Spinoza's Conception of God"

lecture before the Group last Sat-

not break with tradition," Dr.
Wolfson told his large audience
which showed great interest in
the subject, "he simply modified
it. He merely rationalized the
Jewish idea of one God, made it
acceptable to modern man, made
it compatible with modern science.
Next Saturday afternoon the
Spinoza Group will meet as usual
on the lawn at 1059 Collins Ave-
nue, Miami Beach. Dr. Wolfson
will go into greater length in ex-
plaining Spinoza's God. All are
welcome. There is no charge.
Comments and questions are al-
ways welcome.

charge of lending defamatory
matter through the mails.
Hahn-Korff was arrested on the
complaint of Dr. Alton Ochspcr,
Tulane University professor of
medicine, who said he had re-
ceived a postcard with the follow-
ing warning from the German:
"An effort is being made for the
benefit of unsuspected Gentiles to
list all racial Jews in this terri-
tory. Your name as well as your
character suggests according to
testimony by a number of former
associates of yours, that you are
either 100 percent or partly Jew-
ish. Should you fail to produce
convincing evidence to the con-
trary within a reasonable time,
you will be listed as described
above. N. B. We are not interest-
ed in your religious denomination."
Professor Ochsner, who is not
a Jew, said he had discharged
Hahn-Korff, a biochemist, from
the Charity Hospital chemistry
laboratory seven years ago be-
cause "he was too Prussian." The
postcard was turned over to the
Postal Authorities who hailed
Hahn-Korff before U. S. Commis-
sioner R. H. Carter, Jr.

PAGE SIX FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21. 193a 1 Plain Talk To be a writer on Jewish affairs in these times seems a small occupation. In any event a Jew writing or Jewish troubles (and therl'seems "be little left to write about but troubles) Is like a man in the midst of a great conflagration worried about his watch which he left in his room. We are only a few people suffering from Hitler—a handful amid the Czechoslovaks, the Austrians and the multitude of other peoples that still stand in the way of his ambitions. At least the tragic situation of the world serves to giva a Jew something of perspective. In the recent years he has been made to think of himself as some one central around whom revealed all the evil of the times, upon whom was centered all the pain that authoritarians had to inflict. Hitler was the Jews' own devil. And. indeed, here and there could be found a Jew who felt that Hitler would be all right if only he didn't persecute Jews. To such Jews he seemed the right man for a time in which the world required strong handling. He knew how to make an end of labor troubles; he was not one to tolerate unions. They said quite privately that a Hitler (without anti-Semitism) might be a good thing in the United States. The trouble was, they said, that there was too much democracy here an deveryhody had something to say; too much public opinion. These thoughts they shared with a considerable body of non-Jews, except that the totalitarian non-Jews were not so particular about having a Hitler without anti-Semitism. If one can speak of there being any good at all in the recent events it is that the Jew has been about cured of his psychopathic idea that Hitler is exclusively a disease of the Jews. In fact, also among large numbers of non-Jews there has been an opinion that Hitler was something that only Jews suffered from. They could look at him with a certain comfort even, feeling sure that he was an affliction that could never attack them, since only Jews were allergic to Hitler. Liberated from the complex of special persecution the Jew ought to come to see that anti-Semitism is a symptom of disease, not the disease itself; that his own pain is just a small portion of the bundle of the pain of the world; that his pain and its cure are not separate from the poignant problem of mankind. The Jew thus becomes again a man of the world, not the little fellow trembling in his self-imposed ghetto: he is one of the multitude of the men of the world who stand morally embattled against the hordes that march with tyrants to trample down all that is righteous and all that is decent and clean and beautiful In civilization. The Jew no longer stands alone as a victim of persecution. The world of righteous men stands with him;, for the persecution has spread td be an affliction of democracy. The non-Jews who had believed that Hitler could be tolerated because, after ah, he was the pain only of Jews now diagnose him as a loathsome diseaae that is spreading over areas of the hnman family. Until lately he seemed endemic only to Germany; tomorrow or some other tomorrow (or, perhaps already today if the war has come) a multitude of the youth of the world will be dying, as of some plague, on the battlefields on account of him. Jews (I among others) had been fearful of the effect of the news of anti-Semitism that has been appearing in the daily press "Jews Ordered Out of Italy". "Jews Expelled from Public Office" ... We feared that such news might be like evil seed falling on fertile minds in the United States. But, since recent events, I for one have come to believe in an opposite effect of this news. Since the recent events antiSemitism has taken on (I believe) the evil smell of all the other manifestations that the world despises in Hitler: The brutal arrogance, the falsehood, the ruthless will to power, the robbery that masks unashamed as statesmanship, the gangsterism. Hitler's anti-Semitism is seen to be of the same offal with all this—just a morsel in the garbage of moral degradation. Oh, here I am returning to the matter of Jewish pain (a Jew is always getting back to that) though, as I said in the beginning, our own pain has become minor in the affliction of the world. Yea, ours is the least of the current tragedy. And, if before this Is printed there is war, our pain will be only like yesterday's forgotten ache. As kinsmen of mankind in suffering the Jew must emerge from the ghetto in which in recent years he has immured himself, saying, "I must be like some mouse, neither seen nor heard, never sticking my neck out." He must be brave to join with all men (and their numbers are vastly increasing) who stand embattled for the defense of democracy. Democracy no longer is the more shibbolet hof politicians at election time; it is remaining shield of all liberties. Not Palestine is our refuge, not the rapt nationalistic dreams of Jewish leaders playing at statesmanship. Impassioned speeches to save Palestine seem absurd in the nresence of the attack on the blessed safety that multitudes of Jews still have in democracy. We look like ridiculous little people trying to save ourselves on some imaginary island of safety in a time when the whole world cries for succor. When the world needs to he saved for civilization we do not look heroic in our futile effort to save a little place for ourselves. SAILS TO DIRECT OVERSEAS RELIEF Waterman and her committee, announced plans for a Thanksgiving pantry party. Each member will contribute an article suitable for the pantry.

PAGE FIVE It Happened Before BY PROF. LOUIS FINKELSTEIN AGITATORS FINED IN LOUISIANA Alexandria, La., (WNS)—Making short shrift of four men accused of distributing literature attacking Catholics and urging Fascism, City Judge Gus A. Voltz fined them each $100 and sentenced them to 90 days in jail on charges of "peddling and selling without state licenses." He suspended the jail sentences on condition that the men pay the fine and leave town. "Our state, parish and city are made up of Godfearing people—people of all faiths and creeds who enjoy friendship of each regardless of religious beliefs," Judge Voltz said. The four men were Eric W. Ruckman of Los Angeles; Clement Mathis and Robert Graham of Baton Rouge, La.; and Carmen Golden of New Jersey. u* f Do You Own Your Home?

Aeenoy naWtttsr Modern international relations bear a singular resemblance to those of the city states in the far smaller Hellenic world. There is the same desire for expansion by the various states; there is the same subservience of the mob to the irresponsible demagogue; there is even the same willingness to risk war in order to maintain party-ascendancy. Yet an even c!oer analogy to our life is offered by that of Rome in the last days of the Republic and during the period of the Empire. This is not obvious from a superficial reading of the history of Rome, from a study of its military achievements, the description of its government administration, or the story of its rulers. It is only when we read of the intimate life of the Romans, their economic problems, the decay of their family life, and the rise of religious confusion among them, that we realize that many pages of their history might almost be duplicated in a modern metropolitan newspaper. To take a striking example, compare the frequent announcements of complicated series of marriages and divorces in our press with similar series of incidents recorded of the life of Rome's nobility two thousand years ago. It is recorded for us there that Augustus, the founder of the Roman Empire, first married Clodia, and then married Scribonia who had previously been twice married, then for his third wife took Livia who had previously been married to Tiberius Claudius Nero. The daughter of Augustus and Scribonia, Julia, married first Marcellus, then became the third wife of Agrippa who had previously married Pomponia and Marcella. After her divorce Julia married Tiberius. Practically all of these Romans belonged to the small aristocratic group from which was drawn the early emperors. But the resemblance between our age and that of the later Romans goes far deeper than the similarity between such spectacular events. It reaches down into the very fabric of the body-politic. The Roman slave system, which like our modMCKSOftviLU'sl "'UAWNG/i^ '" %  mim MHcotfWfourB) COCXTAH. LOVHOS —4 COfTB I OaW 11, rOMHB %  %  NOmHTTM T NOTtL DttOT* ern machines provided innumerable luxuries never before possessed by man, also ruined the Roman system of free labor. The large entrepreneur, with thousands of slaves to do his bidding, could easily drive the individual worker or trader out of industry and commerce. There resulted a large number of unemployed, whom the Government had to support to avoid revolution. Some if the emperors, realizing the gravity of the situation, sought to amelierate It by resort to inflation of the currency and various forms of governmental supervision of industry, especially agriculture. Certain districts were forced to supply grain for the needs of various urban centers, particularly Rome. Finally, Constantine issued an edict forbidding the peasants, who had formerly been free, to leave their farms, thus reducing them to virtual serfdom and peonage. But all of these measures played into the hands of the few; and helped to hasten the ruin of the middle class, the backbone of the state. In the meantime, the spiritual decay of the Roman world was showing itself by cynicism in public affairs, by a falling birthrate, and above all by confusion in religious life. The old traditions were being swept away. They were being replaced not by higher concepts, but by degraded forms of Egyptian and Asiatic worship. The army itself was reflecting the spiritual decay of Rome; its soldiers were no longer recruited from Italy, but from the distant provinces, and above all from the barbarians. It was clear that the day would soon come when the Barbarians, trained in the military drill of Rome, would crush its empire like a house of cards. Thus, long before Rome was attacked by the Teutonic hordes, it had already—for all intents and purposes—ceased to be. As so frequently happens, the enemy met a people who had rendered themselves defenseless; the walls sank into the earth before the foe even attempted to shatter them. In the course of the fifth century, the city which in its prime had successfully resisted the force and skill of Hannibal, was sacked by the barbarians no less than six times. With its fall there disappeared the last vestiges of world culture. Roads were torn up and left to ruin; ships were stlhk or permitted to rot; magnificient temples were destroyed; their sta tuary was broken to pieces; ancient manuscripts were burned. Within a few generations, the learning of Plato and Aristotle, the medicine of Hippocrates and Galen, the mathematics of Archimedes and Euclid, the dramas of Sophocles and Euripides, the comedies of Aristophanes, the astronomy of Ptolemy, had all been forgotten. The world was thrown back a millenium and a half; once more it found itself in the period of David and Homer, but without either psalmist or poet. Had the imminent destruction of cultural values been completed, the fourteen centuries which have elapsed since the fall of Rome could hardly have sufficed to bring us into the light of the twentieth century. That the fall of Rome resulted merely in the decline, and not in the annihilation, of civilization, was due to forces which emanated from Palestine—Judaism, Christianity and Mohammedanism. The part which they played in the reconstruction of human thought will be the subject of our next discussion. (Professor Finkelstein will be pleased to reply either through this column or through personal correspondence to any question* bearing on the issues raised in the series of articles. He nw be addressed care of The Jewish Floridian, or at his office in the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, 3080 Broadway, N. Y.) Why Suffer Longer Than Necessary?

An exhibition of this good-will, we believe unparallelled in history, and sincerely appreciated, was shown this week when a charge against a Jew of alleged wrong-doing, sent to the local Ku Klux Klan was referred by them to the B'nai B'rith. Regardless of the merit 1 ; of the organization, and the charges made against them of extra-legal activities, some well founded and others untrue, we believe this act on their part in this instance is one we should appreciate. While the B'nai B'rith has never set itself up as the mentor of the peoples' morals, it proposes to advise and help guide the standards of high moral and ethical conduct that the Jewish people have and always should follow. It is an exhibition of confidence in the splendid ideals and work of B'nai B'rith from fellow citizens not of our faith that could well be emulated by our own co-religionists. The local B'nai B'rith has never hesitated to do its duty in every field of life and it accepts this vote of confidence as but an indication that its work is understood. It will not rest upon its laurels. B'nai B'rith will continue to merit the plaudits of all peoples, regardless of race or creed at all times. PAGE THREE A PLEA SOCIETY FORMAL OPENING TO BE HELD The Miami unit of Junior Hadassah is announcing its annual formal opening: to be held on Sunday afternoon, October 80th at the Federal Theatre, 445 N. W. Third Street at 2:30 o'clock. A varied program will be included in the entertainment for the afternoon. A dramatic presentation will delineate the work carried on by Junior Hadassah organizations in Palestine and in conjunction with it a fashion parade will be held. All typea of clothingwill be shown by the models. Miss Dorothy Lightman and Miss Effie SHverraan are directing. Musical selections will be offered by Arthur Hirsch, violinist. Mr. Hirsch is a member of the University of Miami Symphony Orchestra. The cast for the opening scenes Mrs. Dorothy Brenner, Miss Blanche Seligman, Miss Mildred Gordon, Miss Shirley Eratling, Miss Sally Singer, Miss Ruthye Bernstein, Miss Thelma Groper, Miss Ruth Lazarus, Miss Eva Wernicoff, Miss Jean Weinberg, Miss Shirley Roaenthal, Miss Jeanette Kronenfeld and Miss Muriel Sawits. Miaa Harriet Damenstein is portraying the character of Henrietta Szold who is a founder of Junior Hadassah organizations and at present is honorary president. The public is cordially invited to be present at the formal opening. There is no admission charge. • • • MEETING IS HELD A meeting of considerable interest to the community was that of the President's Club of Greater Miami, composed of presidents of the Jewish organizations of this city, which was held Wednesday evening, October 19th at the home of Mrs. S. H. Lutsky, president of the Southeastern Region of Hadassah and also president of this club. Among those present were Mrs. Ida Buckstein, president of the .Ladies Auxiliary of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation; Mrs. Milton Travers. president of Temple Israel Sisterhood; Mrs. B. H. London, president of Beth Jacob Sisterhood; Mrs. Sam Simonhoff, president of Hadasah; Mrs. Irving Querido, president of Junior Hadassah; Mrs. Ida Optner, president of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Jewish Welfare Bureau; Mrs. Isidor Cohen, president of Chesed Shel Emeth and Mrs. Sid ney Stepkin, representing the Young Women's Hebrew Association. The evening was spent in discussing the major problems of the local women's organisations nd "In these days of distress, when intolerance and extreme nationalism are running rampant over the world, we must be ever on the alert to safeguard liberty in our democratic country. "Men and women, particularly Jewish men and women can no longer afford to stand on the side lines and cheer. They must be aware of the problem, think it through unemotionally and act intelligently. They must align themselves with the forces of freedom and justice both within and outside of the Jewish group. "At the present moment, one of these forces is making an appeal to the Jewish Women of America. In 3. r .0 cities of the United States, the National Council of Jewish Women is waging a campaign to increase its membership to 65,000. Council has been in existence for forty-five years and during that time it has become an articulate voice, raised for progress, justice and humanitarian efforts. "Council has a six point program so broad and so inclusive that it is calculated to appeal to every Jewish woman everywhere. It concentrates on Service to the Foreign Born, which includes every phase of emigre adjustment, from helping Americans to fill out affidavits to bring unfortunate relatives to this country, to meeting the new arrivals and helping them adjust to a new world; International Relations and Peace; Social Legislation; Contemporary Jewish Affairs; Social Welfare and Education. "Through study, action and service, Council has gained the respect of informed men and women throughout the nation. It is the only nation-wide organization composed of a cross section of all types of Jewish women working for a fuller life and a better world for the people of America. As such, it deserves the interest and unfailing support of the women of the community. "The Miami Section, National Council of Jewish Women is cooperating in this national drive and has appointed its membership committee which is now in action. The Miami Section supports all the above mentioned projects and has been active in this work locally for over fifteen years; besides taknig action in all local civic projects. We urge the support of the Greater Miami womanhood. definite measures were taken to establish unity and cooperation between them. Each president presented a five minute talk on her platform and projects of her organization. Miss Einbinder of the University of Miami, spoke on the symphony concerts sponsored by the University to be held this season and encouraged more participation on the part of the women's organizations in attending these concerts. One of the major features of the coming season will be a class in parliamentary law to be conducted by Mrs. Isaac Levin, who has been instructing classes fer the presidents of all the P-T-A clubs of this city. • • • INVITED TO BE SPEAKER Mrs. Max Dobrin, local Youth Aliyah chairman, has been invited to be one of the major speakers at the Southeastern Regional Conference of Hadassah to be held in Atlanta, Ga., from January 14th to the 17th. .._ B'NAI B'RITH I BRIEFS (BY E ALBERT PALLOT) Dedicated to the enthusiastic Ben Briths at the Miami-U. of Florida football game at Gainesville on Saturday, October 12, 1938 The younger contingent of the B'nai B'rith were out in full force to witness that unforgettable game Let's see who was there, Oh Yes, there was Al Pallot, Jack Abbott, Harry Kaplan, Sidney Segal, Abe Aronovitz, Stanley Myers, E. Max Goldstein, Dr. Harold Rand, Dr. Leonard Finn, Dr. Kupper. Paul Marks, Morris Solomon, Eli Katz, William Shayne, Al. Dubbin, Arthur Friedman, Aaron Fair, Dr. Augustine, Louis Heiman, Dr. Albert Rosenthal, Leo Ackerman, Nat Williams, Herbert Sher, Dr. J. Alexander and "Bunny" Beldner. Did you read the newspaper report of the University of Miami Freshman who was injured on the train enroute to the game? It was our own Dr. Rand who gave him first aid, wired the next town for an ambulance, and later rode into Gainesville with the sheriff, no less. Leo "Ketchup" Ackerman is a marksman of the first water—He can take a spoonful! of catsup and let someone have it at twenty paces. If you don't believe it ask him—or better still you should ask —, now let's see, who was it anyway? Actually he did pull a William Tell. Which Happy Go Lucky members visited the Florida Law School after the game, and when they discovered that they could not get it, became angry and playfully removed notices, announcements and records that were at the entrance to the school. Suffice it to say the naughty boys are children of their Alma Mammy— University of Florida. Several of the boys went over to a swanky restaurant to have dinner before the game. Upon arriving there, they scanned the menu very thoroughly, and decided on steak which was priced at the enormous price of thirty cents. Believe it or not, our own brother, Bill Shayne inquired of the waiter whether the emporium had better steaks at a higher price. The reply was "that they sure had." So Bill ordered one that cost forty cents and when it arrived the joke was on Bill as the steak that he got was the same as the rest of the boys got at thirty cents. Harry "I'll be Frank with You" Kaplan, says that he isn't sure whether he enjoyed the game. The reason being that he bet last December that Florida would win this year's game. Though he had a change of heart when he arrived at Gainesville and really wanted Miami to win our good brother, Sidney Segall would not have it so Harry shouted his head off for Florida. And all for"$26.00. Little "itsy bltsy" Ida Optner, preaident of the Jewish Welfare Bureau Auxiliary, is a peach. Not only was she at the station to wave and kiss all the brothers goodby, but she was also there to welcome us back, Her, exuberance SOCIETY BABY DAUGHTER 1 IS BORN Mr. and Mrs. Jack Miller are receiving congratulations on the birth of a baby daughter at the Jackson Memorial Hospital last Thursday. Mother and baby are resting nicely. The baby will be named at services in Beth Jacob Congregation tomorrow morning.

Ida—Our hats off to you. We really love you. The concensus of the students at the University was that they would welcome a Rabbi in Gainesville. All were very enthusiastic about our student activities. The $500.00 Harry Simonhoff requested of our Lodge for this work and which we authorized is the best money we ever spent. Don't forget that these boys will become the teachers of Jewry to the next generation, and they must have a thorough foundation m Judaism.

Parents are welcome with their children. At each service every Saturday morning, Rabbi Shapiro explains the portion of law to the worshippers. RELIGIOUS SCHOOL Over 200 children thus far have enrolled with the Beth David Sunday School indicating that a tremendous enrollment will take place before registration finally closes. Additional classrooms are being built to accommodate all Close to 50 children have already registered at our Talmud Torah this past week. It may be neces•sry to stop registration shortly and we therefore ask parents to enroll their children at once for Hebrew study. Remember, the study of Hebrew as a culture and religion has precedence over everything. EXTRA CURRICULUM ACTIVITY Mr. Stanley C. Myers will be in charge of members of our faculty who desire to study further pedagogical rules as applied to their individual classes. For a period of several months, Mr. Myers will conduct class after Sunday School hours from 12:00 to 12:30.

Ickes Opposes Self-Made Ghetto St. Louis, (WNSWews who oppose the appointment of other Jews to high public office in fear that such appointments foster anti-Semitism were denounced by Secretary of Interior Harold L Ickes as proposing a "self-made ehetto." Speaking at a memorial meeting for the late Justice Benjamin N. Cardoso under the auspices of Temple Israel Brother hood. Mr. Ickes said "not a single eossamer in today's web of antiSemitism can be traced to his presence on the bench. Respected, admired and beloved by all, his actions answered those who preach Jkst the presence of Jews in pub Hfc 4s the cause of anti-Semitism." Referring to the fact that wme Jews opposed Cardozo's appointment on the ground that a second Jew on the Supreme Court would create further anti-Semitism, Mr. Ickes said they "seemed to forget that the coward who runs away from his mortal enemy justly forfeits the guerdon of the brave." They proposed, in effect, a self-made ghetto, and sought the ear of President Hoover to gain Presidential sanction for that ghetto. These Jews were no less blind in their opposition to progress than were the rich Jews in democratic countries in Europe when Fascism started its march to power. Asserting that Jews "are in the forefront of the fight for progress and civil liberties," Mr. Ickes denied they were radicals In the sense that they sought to overthrow the government by force or that they were "visionary Utopians." Buttenweiser Heads N. Y. Delegation New York, (Wns)— Benjamin Buttenweiser, partner in Kuhn, Loeb and Company, became the eighth president of the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies of New York when the board of trustees elected him as the successor of the late Lawrence Marx. At 37 Buttenweiser is said to be the youngest man to head an organization of this kind. Percy S. Straus, president of R. H.

JEWS EXCUSED IN SPY TRIALS New York, (WNS)—Five Jewish members of the panel from which were drawn the jurors selected to try the Germans on trial in Federal court here on charges of espionage were excused by Judge Knox after he had questioned all prospective talesmen as to their racial and religious prejudices. The Jewish talesmen were excused despite the fact that only one admitted prejudice against the defendants. A special effort was also made to see to it that the staff of the United States District Aorney prosecuting the defendants contained no Jews. Tampa Notes (Continued from Page Six) Mrs. A.

^Jemsti Florid'/an %% VOLUME 11—NO. 41. Tlhe Jewish Unity 3* fi JUArL&& WjuJULy MIAMI, FLORIDA FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1938 Mass Meetings To Be Held Nationally -—1 1 —1PRICE FIVE GENTS New York, (WNS)—Countrywide mass meetings to urge Great Britain to keep the gates of Palestine open to Jewish immigration, will be held on Sunday afternoon, October 28rd, in 460 communities in response to a call issued here by the Emergency Committee on Palestine, representing every phase of organized Jewish life. The meetings will be addressed by prominent Jews and non-Jews. The decision to call the nationwide meetings was reached at a conference of the Committee at which the following organizations were represented by their leaders: American Jewish Committee, American Jewish Congress, B'nai B'rith, Jewish Labor Lommittee, Hadassah, Zionist Organization of America, Palestine Foundation Fund, Jewish National Fund, Palestine Economic Corporation, Poale Zion, Mitrachi and the Council of the Jewish Agency. The mass meetings will be sponsored jointly by these organizations. Because of previously arranged affairs the meeting in Greater Miami area will be held on Monday evening, November 7th, full details of which will appear in our next issue. White House Is I — Swamped By Wires K,an Asks B'nai B'rith Cooperation JUSTICE BRANDEIS SEES PRESIDENT Washington, D. C, (WNS)— .lustice Louis D. Brandeis, who had scrupulously avoided public identification with any cause, Jewish or otherwise since his appointment to the Supreme Court in 1916, precipitated a crop of sensational rumors by making a personal rail at the White House where he conferred with President Roosevelt for more than an hour shortly after a Jewish delegation had left a memorandum on the Palestine situation with Secretary of State Hull. Justice Brandeis went to the White House on the President's invitation. Beyond that the White House made no announcement of the purpose of the unusual call. It was believed, however, to be connected with the general Jewish "ituation abroad and with the Palestine crisis. Besieged by reporters as he left the White House, Justice Brandeis refused to answer all questions. "Absolutely not a word," he said. "Not a thing to say on an ysubject" As a result of his silence and the failure of the White House to explain rumors spread that he went to the White House to discuss his resignation from the Supreme Court in order to accept leadership of a world organization to cope with the Jewish problem in Europe. Another rumor had it that influential American Jewish leaders have appealed to hint to i^sign in order to make hie international prestige available to his People. It is unquestionably true that Brandeis discussed the refugee and Palestine problems with Washington, D. C, (WNS)— More than 10,000 telegrams and other messages from Jews and non-Jews in all parts of the United States have already been received at the White House and the State Department urging the United States Government to intercede with Great Britain to keep the gates of Palestine open to Jewish immigration. Members of Congress have been similarly deluged. Among those sending messages were all eight members of Congress from Brooklyn; the entire Congressional delegation; the 25,000 Jews of Rochester, N. Y.; Governor George Earle of Pennsylvania; William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor; a score of noted writers and scholars, including Thomas Mann, Albert Einstein, President Walter Dill of Northwestern University, President Ray L. Wilbur of Stanford University, Oswald Garrison Villard, President Robert G. Sproul of the Universit yof California, President A. C. Willard of the University of Illinois and President Goyd Marvin of George Washington University. Additional messages were also received from Hadassah, Junior Judea, the Central Conference of American Rabbis, Federation of Polish Jews, Federation of Galician Jews. Unusual in the history of the United States was the receipt of a letter by the anti-Defamation Committee of the local B'nai B'rith from the local Ku Klux Klan asking the B'nai B'rith to investigate charges against a Jewish resident in Miami of wrongdoing which had been sent them. In the letter from the local Klan, they advised that they recognized the wonderful work of the B'nai B'rith and expressed confidence in the ability of the B'nai B'rith to investigate and take care of any charges against Jews in this area. The anti-Defamation committee acknowledged receipt of the letter and took the proper action. ANNUAL MEETING WILL BE HELD CATHOLIC HEAD DEEPLY MOVED Rome—The extent to which the Pope is concerned by anti-Semitic developments in Italy is indicated, according to Vatican officials, by a story appearing in the Belgian newspaper, Le Soir, which describes him as weeping while denouncing Italian anti-Semitism to a delegation of visiting Belgian Catholics. The published report of the interview, which has not been denied by the Holy Father, states that he used the term "anciSemitism" instead of "racism," which is the term he usually employs in his public addresses. In discussing "our poor Jewish brothers," Le Soir quotes the Pope as having said: "Remember thst spiritually we are all Semites." Though no one officially connected with the Vatican will comment or supplement the brief report in Le Soir, they are agreed that the publication is relaible and trustworthy. They point out that it is Impossible to get a confirmation of the story in tha: the interview was a private one but that had it caused displeasure to the Pope or high Vaticin officials it would have undoubtedly been discredited. t^ the President but the Seven Arts Feature Syndicate has been informed on the highest authority that no reference to Brandeis' resignation was made during the conference. The annual meeting of the members of the Jewish Welfare Bureau will be held Monday evening, October 24th beginning at 8:00 o'clock in the Flagler room of the McAllister Hotel. Reports of the work of the organization and its Free Loan Fund will be presented by Mrs. Sadye G. Rose, secretary and Stanley C. Myers, president. Details of the numerous cases supported by the Bureau will be given to show the manifold activities of the organisation in the community. Election of officers will follow the report of the nominating committee headed by Dr. Albert E. Rosenthal. Others of the committee are Messrs. Mark Max, J. Gerald Lewis, Benj. Le Vine and J. Louis Shochet. The members of the Jewish Welfare Bureau, the Ladies Auxiliary and the general public are urged to attend. LAB 0 R PARTY SUPPORTS Z I O N Houston, (WNS)—The American Federation of Labor's convention recorded itself as favoring keeping immigration of Jews to Palestine open, in a resolution endorsing telegrams to that effect sent by President William Green to Secretary of State Hull and Sir Walter Citrine, chairman of the British Trade Union Congress. The A. F. of L., also reaffirmed its boycott of German goods. TUNE IN SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:00 Tha Jewish Floridian will again present another in It* teriaa of weekly broadcasts this coining Sunday morning oTer Station W*AT (1500 k. c.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's foil of interesting newt and com mtnte and mule. Catholic Official Declines Relations New York, (WNS)—Dock Commissioner John McKenzie, a Catholic, last week notified German Ambassador Hans Dieckhoff that as a Catholic, he would have no social relations with Germans "until the Reich returns to the path of civilization in religious freedom." Mr. McKenzie made this statement in withdrawing his previous acceptance of an invitation to attend ceremonies at the launching of the German catapult plane Nordwind at Port Washington. MCDONALD TO PHONE SPEECH JEWISH LEADERS REPLY TO ARABS Atlanta, Ga.,—A telephoned address by James G. McDonald, former League of Nations High Commissioner for refugees from Germany, will be a striking feature of the regional conference of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, Sunday, October 23rd, at the Atlanta Biltmore Hotel, Harold Hirsch, of Atlanta, regional chairman, announced today. Mr. McDonald, who as associate editor of the New York Times is well informed on international problems .will speak from New York but his vivid description of the crisis facing oppressed Jews in foreign lands will be broadcast to approximately 400 prominent Southern Jews attending the conference. Jerusalem, (WNS Palcor Agency)—While Arab leaders were threatening that unless the Jews agreed to their demands they would completely wipe out the Jewish ... .. ., campaign chairman and vice-chaircommumties of Palestine and the F %  „ man of the committee, Joseph C As the Southerners set up a permanent Southern organization of the Joint Distribution Committee, Rabbi Jonah B. Wise, national whole Near East,the Jews of Palestine declared that such massacres could only disgrace the Arabs without in any way preI venting the realization of Zionism. At the same time Jewish lead| era offered to Arab leaders the alternative of peace baaed on mutual good will. Moshe Shertok, head of the Political Department of the Jewish Agency, cabled an answer to the Palestine Arab Defense Committee, which through a group of Arab leaders in Damascus sent a cable to Dr. Chaim Wei'zmann threatening the Jews of Palestine and of the whole world that unless they would immediately desist in their efforts toward further upbuilding of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, the Arabs of Palestine and the Near East would declare a holy war and kill all the Jews living there. This warning was issued in conjunction with the Arab Interparliamentary Congress which met at Cairo, Egypt, over the weekend. The Jewish leader declared: "Zionism will not be deterred by threats of killings. The firm stand of Palestine Jewry despite the Arab onslought of the last three years bears eloquent testimony to that fact. If the Arabs of neighboring countries should resort to the massacring of Jews, that would not prevent the realization of Zionism but would only bring disgrace to the Arabs themselves— as did the killing and burning of the women and children of Tiberias, an act that will remain as a shameful stain on the record of the Arabs of Palestine. We see the possibility of fruitful co-operation throughout Palestine, embracing the Jews and Arabs of Palestine and of neighboring countries for the good of everyoneBut an essential condition for such cooperation would be the recognition of the basic rights of the Jewish people in Palestine, the realisation of which could only be of benefit to the Arabs. The return of the Jews to Palestine is dicHyman, secretary and executive director, Isidor Coons, national campaign director, and Mrs. Pauline Baerwald FalV, chairman of the Committee's Junior division, will appear in person to discuss the work of the Joint DhrtrrbtrHon Comm'ttee, which for 25 years has been the leading American agency helping distressed Jews overseas.

LABOR LEADER URGES UNITY New York, (WNS)—A unite* American labor movement would have sufficient prestige "to influence President Roosevelt to take a direct stand with Hitler and Mussolini and other world powers against unjust persecution of Jews," Daniel Tobin, president of the Teamster's Union, the biggest union in the American Federation of Labor, declared in an interview with International News Service. Mr. Topln said he believed a reunion of. the A. F. of L. and the C. I. O. would create a labor voice powerful enough to have that effect. On the basis of talks with leaders abroad, Tobin said he was convinced that if the President directed to European nations another dramatic appeal, similar to that he sent out during the war crisis, the pressure thus built up would compel Hitler and Mussolini to change their attitude toward the Jews. tated J>y historical necessity; and threats will not deflect the Jewish people from its path to freedeom."
