Charles Bruce Swift of Pittsburgh,
identified as a reserve officer in
the U. S. Naval Intelligence, was
accused this week of being an or-
ganizer for the anti-Semitic and
pro-Nazi Silver Shirts. The accu-
sation was made by John C. Met-
cslfe, investigator for the House
Committee Investigating un-Amer-
ican Activities, in testimony be-
fore the committee.

built up a private espionage ser-
vice "with the help of persons
who have been duped into believ-
ing that by helping Swift they
have been helping the United

been helping Swift's subversive
activities.' The witness further

LAW INVOKED
AGAINST NAZIS
West New York, (WNS)The
New Jersey law of 1934 providing

dinand Hepperle, 46-year-old Gut-
tenberg printer and member of

__________PRICE FIVE CENTS
BRITAIN BARS
MUFTI FROM
CONFERENCE
London, (WNSPalcor Agen-
cy)Because of his record of
many years, the Grand Mufti of
Jerusalem, now in Lebanon, is un-
acceptable to the British Govern-
ment as one of the Arab repre-
sentatives to take part in the im-
minent Arab-Jewish conferences
on Palestine, Colonial Secretary
Malcolm MacDonald told the House
of Commons in the course of a
statement amplifying last week's
government statement of policy.
Replying to a series of questions
regarding the London meetings,
MacDonald made the following
points:
1The Colonial Office is com-
municating with the governments
of Egypt, Iraq, Saudi, Yemen and
Transjordania, but not Syria and
Lebanon, because the latter are
controlled by the French Govern-
ment which will be kept fully in-
formed; 2In view of the invita-
tion to the Arabs to come to Lon-
don, the government expects the
Arab rebellious activities to cease
and "if they do not end, the gov-
ernment must continue all meas-
ures necessary to end the disor-
ders; 3the discussions will be in-
formal, no program being submit-
ted for the purpose of a vote, the
possibility being that out of the
talks between representatives of
the Arabs, of the neighboring
countries, of the government and
of the Jews "there may develop a
round-table conference between
the Jews and the Arabs"; 4 The
United States will be kept fully
informed of Britain's intentions.
Holland Negotiating
For Refugee Aid
The Hague, (WNS)Holland
has opened negotiations with
France, England, Denmark, Bel-
gium and Switzerland to consider
measures for aiding emigration of
Jews from Germany, Premier Hen-
drikus Colijn told the Second
Chamber of Parliament this week.
He emphasised that Holland
was unable to act alone because
"too many Jews would come to
Holland."
New York, (WNS)Expressing
relief but no surprise at the Wood-
head Commission's conclusion that
the partition of Palestine is not
feasible, the executive committee
of the American Non-Zionist
Members of the Jewish Agency,
which has been consistently op-
posed to partition, issued a state-
ment here declaring "we are glad
that the British Government has
decided to convoke a round-table
conference of Arabs and Jews,
which we have long urged, be-
cause we believe that once the dif-
ferent elements of the population
could come together for a full and
frank discussion, a great deal
would be gained."
The committee, composed of Dr.
Cyrus Adler, president of the
Jewish Theological Seminary; Sol
Stroock, chairman of the executive
committee of the American Jew-
ish Committee; and Dr. Maurice
J. Karpf, expressed gratification
at the "assurance of the British
Government that they *will keep
constantly in mind the internation-
al character of the Mandate with
which they have been entrusted
and their obligations in that re-
spect.' We trust that they will
reconsider the expressed intention
of inviting representatives of thj
neighboring countries to the pro-
posed conference." .J

B'NAI B'RITH
mm
BRIEFS
This has been a busy week for
B'nai B'rith. Starting off with a
bang last Monday, came the offi-
cial announcement that the Ham-
burg-American Line was through
and would not rear its hideous
head in our vicinity. Tuesday
morning many of the members en-
joyed the sights on East Flagler
Street, watching the removal of
signs from the Hamburg-Ameri-
can offices. Don't blame the boys
for feeling happy.
THE BLACK CROOK
NOW IT MAY BE TOLD
As an evidence of what may be done by a determined band
cf men, imbued with the knowledge of the righteousness and
justice of their cause, we respectfully submit the following:
In the latter part of July 1938, there appeared in the daily
newspapers the announcement that the Hitler owned, Hitler
operated Hamburg-American Line would operate passenger
service between Havana and Key West starting on December
15th. Knowing the import of such a service, and the inevitable
deluge of anti-Semitic propaganda accompanying the arrival of
German boat* in this area, the B'nai B'rith anti-Defamation
Committee began to marshall its forces to fight this menace.
Resolutions were adopted by the Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith
protesting the establishment of this line and copies were printed
and forwarded to hundreds throughout this area. The Sea-
men's Union of the American Federation of Labor was con-
tacted and their aid enlisted. The Jewish War Veteran's Post
ir Miami, the Florida Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges, the
Civic League as well as other Veteran's organizations and civic
bodies were asked to adopt similar resolutions, which was done.
Negotiations were begun with the Florida Motor Lines for
the purpose of having them abrogate the announced tie-up
with the Hamburg-American lines, and joint ticket and adver-
tising arrangements. In the meantime the papers carried ad-
vertisements of a tie-up with the Seaboard Railway for joint
advertising and ticket arrangements to New York City. Nego-
tiations were then begun with the Railway, and protracted con-
ferences were held with various officials of the Railway. Men
prominent in the business life of this area were enlisted in the
fight and thanks to the combined representations, the officials
of the Seaboard Railway announced that they had abrogated
their relations and would have nothing to do with the Hamburg-
American Line.
Last week representatives of the Florida Motor Lines were
in conference with members of the B'nai B'rith anti-Defamation
Committee and they were urged to abrogate their arrangements
for joint advertising and ticket arrangements. Last Friday the
Florida Motor Lines advised that they had discontinued prev-
ious arrangements with the Hamburg-American Line and would
no longer be associated with them.
Last Sunday unofficial advice was received by the mem-
bers of the committee that bereft of their traffic arrangements
and in view of the battle that had been waged, the Hamburg-
American Line would in all probabilities be completely dis-
continued.
Last Monday the City Officials of Key West were advised
that the Hamburg-American Line scheduled to start December
15th, between Key West and Havana would not run and that
the entire matter had been dropped. Last Tuesday official no-
tices were published in the daily papers. Tuesday morning the
large electric signs, and the window displays, including the
Swastika were removed from the palatial offices of the Ham-
burg-American Line which had been opened in the heart of the
Business section on East Flagler Street, and large "for rent
signs placed in the windows.
The members of the B'nai B'rith anti-Defamation Com-
mittee performed only their duty, and despite the fact
Monday night the Executive
Committee of the Anti-Defamation
Committee held a four hour ses-
sion listening to charges aga'nst
certain firms in this community
of having engaged in anti-Jewsh
and pro-Nazi activities. A steno-
graphic record of the proceedings
were taken for future reference.
The committee will render its ver-
dict sometime this coming week
after having given some careful
thought and weighhing the evi-
dence.
A membership drive will begin
soon with the untiring Matty
Bandler leading the procession of
Jews who realize their duty to the
community and the value of a
larger and ever growing B'nai
Brith.
B'nai B'rith was ably represent-
ed in the formation of the Great-
er Miami Refugee Co-ordinating
Committee and will have a gigan-
tic task if it undertakes, as we
believe it will, the obtaining of
employment for refugees, general
rehabilitation and Americaniza-
tion work. B'nai B'rith has never
shirked its duty in this area and
has faced what seemed to be un-
surmountable obstacles without
flinching.
Those of you who desire to vote
should bear in mind that dues
must be paid. Why not send your
check now without further ado.

We wonder if it would not be possible to work together in
other communal matters in just as determined and hard a fash-

splendid reward the reward of accomplishment as their
recompense. ^Hf

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 18, 1933
HABET MISHOMOYIM
In these days of sadness and
sorrow we raise our eyes unto
Heaven imploring Him who is the
Father of Mercies to look down
from His Holy Habitation from the
Heavens and heal the wounds of
our people. Joining our co-relig-
ionists here and throughout the
world as well as the liberal non-
Jews throughout the States we
designate Sunday the 26th day of
Chesvan for Prayer and Interces-
sion for fasting and lamentation.
Special services will be held in the
Synagogue at 12:00 noon which
will climax with the reading of
the Vaychol, Portion from the
Torah and the Recital of the Ovinu
Malkenu, prayers from the High
Holiday service.
We tearfully beseech our sisters
and brothers of the House of Is-
rael to set aside this hour for pray-
er and introspection and may in
its wake be realized the assurance
of King David: '-They they cried
unto the Lord when they were in
distress and out of their afflic-
tions he delivered them."
LADIES AUXILIARY
A regular meeting of our La-
dies Auxiliary will be held o
Tuesday evening at the Synagogue

iliary and their friends. Everyone
is urged to attend. Cantor R. S.
Silver will entertain with several
vocal selections.
BENEFIT CARD PARTY TO BE
HELD
The first in the series of benefit
card games under the auspices of
the Ladies Auxiliary will be held

dames Charles and Samuel Tan-
nenbaum. The homes, located at
2101 and 2103 Southwest Eleventh
Street, and special arrangements
are completed to make this even-
ing a source of personal pleasure
to all those attending. Games
and bingo will be enjoyed and re-
freshments will be served. Spec-
ial prizes will be given to those
gaining high scores.
HABANOTH NOTES
Our Habanoth Group received
another national recognition as the
national magazine reporting of the
progress of the various groups
throughout the country gave our
group first place in the reports.
Rita Grossman, reporting for our
club, was the only club member
whose report rated a full column.
Due to the expansion of the He-
brew classes the Habanoth will
meet in the Y. M. H. A., and will
also inaugurate this coming Mon-
day a class in Elementary He-
brew. Classes in Brochos and in

us in our urgent task to raise the
necessary monies to keep the Y.
M. H. A. and its many affiliates
open to the hundreds of boys and
girls and men and women who
need the environment of a center
such as the Y. is striving for.
Nat Blumberg, chairman of the
ticket committee announces that
tickets for the ball are now on
sale. In conjunction with the
ticket sales, Mr. Blumberg is run-
ning a club popularity contest
with the individual selling the
most tickets acclaimed winner as

the Y. M. H. A. will sponsor an
exclusive Y. program at Bayfront
Park. This is the first time in
the history of Miami that a Jewish
organization was given the honor
and privilege of conducting an ex-
clusive program at Bayfront Park.
We have prepared an excellent
program consisting of high class
entertainment and very little
speech making. The Boy Scout
and Girl Scout Troops will be ush-
ers and will show the public what
they have accomplished. The
Dramatic Club will render a one-

a variety program and members
are urged to do their utmost to
bring as many friends as they can.

A new innovation in cultural
programs was inaugurated last
Monday night by our Executive
Director at a meeting of the Ju-
nior Division. Titles of twenty
subjects were written on individual
sheets of paper and were placed in
a box. Ten contestants were se-
lected and each one chose a paper
from the box and was allotted one
minute to speak on the subject
drawn.
It was a real treat to hear the
youngsters speak extemporaneous-
ly on the various topics including:
history, current events and humor.
All present agreed that these pro-
grams should be encouraged be-
cause it gives the participants self
assurance. The Executive Direc-
tor expects to repeat this program
next Monday night. All are in-
vited.
In response to numerous re-
quests, our Executive Director is
inaugurating an Americanization

The establishment of such a real,
! that though informal, system of au-
thoritative Judaism, must ulti-
mately be accounted as one of the
foremost contributions of Judaism
to the world. Never was there a
truer democracy than this Jewish
world; and never has Man shown
himself more able to cooperate
the Kingdom of Heaven gave
meaning to the principle of the
viceregent of God. The Jew thus
unconsciously contributed to the
cementing of the bonds of the
Church, to the strengthening of
governments, and above all to the
transformation of feudal anarchy
into a feudal system. No wonder
that even in the darkest days of
the Middle Ages, when he was
most bitterly persecuted by the
barons, he was offered a modicum
of protection by both Kings and
Popes.

ENIGMA OF JEWISH
DISCIPLINE
The enigma of Jewish self-dis-
cipline in the Middle Ages can be
solved only in terms of his mental
attitude toward the world, and his
deep awareness of the value of
his tradition to himself and to
mankind, When the Jew came
horns from daily intercourse with
peasant, squire or baron, mediae-
val monk or bishop, and turned
to his Talmud, he inevitably felt
that he was escaping from a world
of confusion into one of order, from
ignerance into learning, from dark
neas into light, from barbarism
into civilisation. To reject the
words of the sages, and their an
thoritative contemporary interpre

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 18, 1938
HE ANNOUNCED THE ARMISTICE
The Jewish Courier of the War's End
_THB JBWI8H FLORIDIA1C
(BY SIMON FLAGER)
Yesterday's her and today's
forgotten nan la George Roth,
a dispatch rider of the 319th
Signal Batallion, who waa the
courier entrusted by Marshal
Forh with carrying the news of
the figning of the Armistice to
the American high command
twenty years ago.
THE EDITOR.
On November 11th, 1918, the
number of American troops in
France had risen to two million,
divided into a First Army com-
manded by General Liggett, and a
Second Army commanded by Gen-
eral Bullard. The First Army
stretched from tha outskirts of Se-
dan to a point just southwest of
Metz, a distance of more than sixty
miles, while the Second Army was
concentrated east of the Meuse.
Both were ready for a newly pre-
pared offensive against the un-
touched front in Lorraine schedul-
ed to begin November 14th.
Among the American troops was
a Jewish doughboy from Spring-
field, Ohio, who for more than a
year had been riding his mud-spat-
tered motorcycle through a gaunt-
let of shellfire and bursting bombs
carrying dispatches. He had car-
ried thousands of them over all
sorts of roads and under all sorts
of conditions. But on November
11th destiny had picked him to
carry the news of one of the most
historic events of modern times,
the signing of the Armistice that
ended the World War.
On November 6th the German
high command realized that all
was over and sent emissaries to
Marshal Ferdinand Foch, general-
issimo of the Allied Forces, to
sue for peace. Two days later
Foch received the German pleni-
potentiaries in his private train in
the heart of the Compiegne For-
est, north of Paris. Without wast-
ing time on formalities, Foch read
the terms of the Armistice and
said: "Gentlemen, I leave this text
with you. You have seventy-two
hours to reply to it."
When Mathias Erzberger, lead-
er of the German delegates, later
to be assisnated by some of the
men who became important figures
in the Nazi party, pleaded with
Foch not to wait for seventy-two
hours, but to stop hostilities at
once, Foch remained adamant and
demanded word from German head
quarters. For the next twenty-j
four hours messagea flashed back ___,__- onlAIir m^-v
and forth between the German | NEW STORE TO
lines and Berlin. When the Kaiser
abdicated on November 9th and a
new government took over the
reins, Foch's ultimatum had for-
ty-eight hours to go.
It was then that the new Ger-
man Government sent its delegates
the orders to accent the Armis-
tice. To the Eiffel Tower wireless
station in Paris was flashed the
messajre^'The German govern-
ment acants." That was on the
"ieht of November 10th. The sev-
entv-two hours would be over at
dawn. For twelve hours the dele-
gates labored over the terms and
at 5:15 A. M.. the Armistice was
"itrned in Foch's railroad car.
While all this waa going on, Dis-
patch Rider Leon George Roth of
'he 818th Signal Battalion. First
Army, waa waiting outside, leaning
against the hulk of a tree scarred
by sheila. He had juat returned
fn hie post carrying aealed orders.
't was cold and Roth smoked a
f'Rarette while waiting for instruc-
tions. He didn't know what was
Opening in that train. He didn't
even know Foch waa there. His
cigarette was still burning when
an orderly burst out of the train,
shoved some papers into it and
shoved sime papers into it and
inatructed him to ride like mad
to the First Army Headquarters
near Souilly.
Mounting his motorcycle, he
plowed through mud and shell
holes, ducking shrapnel and
screaming shells overhead. It was
just another assignment, thought
he, like others he had carried out
under sim-lar circumstances since
his arrival in France. Once he
skidded into a shell hole. It was
choked with bodies. He picked
himself up and mounted his ma-
chine and was off again, praying
he would get through alive and
wishing the war were over. When
he roared into headquarters there
was a hole in his scalp where a
piece of shrapnel had buried itaelf
during his wild ride through the
early dawn. Saluting, he handed J
over his dispatch can.
In a few minutes the air was
rent with wild cries of happiness.
The gunfire had ceased. The smoke
from shells disappeared. A lieuten-
ant came over and informed Roth
the war was over. The orders he
had carried contained the Armis-
tice. Firing was to cease at 11:00
A. M., on the eleventh day of the
eleventh month of 1918. Not until
it was all clear did Roth know that
he had played a stellar role in the
crowning drama of the World War.
A couple of weeks later Roth's
exploit was rewarded when the
First Army decorated him with the
Distinguished Service Medal and a
French General pinned the Croix
de Guerre on his breast.
The war over, Roth went back
to Springfield. He is a plumber
by trade. But today he hasn't a
job. The unsung hero of Novem-
ber 11th, 1918 can't support his
wife.
We first heard about Roth dur-
ing the New York convention of
the American Legion. Alone and
forgotten he wandered through the
city which had been the scene of
an unprecedented display of joy on
November 11th, 1918. Roth isn't
the sort of fellow who talks much.
But in the years that have elapsed
since he carried the news of the
Armistice he must have thought a
great deal about the fate of heroes.

PRICE FIVE CENTS BRITAIN BARS MUFTI FROM CONFERENCE London, (WNS—Palcor Agency)—Because of his record of many years, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, now in Lebanon, is unacceptable to the British Government as one of the Arab representatives to take part in the imminent Arab-Jewish conferences on Palestine, Colonial Secretary Malcolm MacDonald told the House of Commons in the course of a statement amplifying last week's government statement of policy. Replying to a series of questions regarding the London meetings, MacDonald made the following points: 1—The Colonial Office is communicating with the governments of Egypt, Iraq, Saudi, Yemen and Transjordania, but not Syria and Lebanon, because the latter are controlled by the French Government which will be kept fully informed; 2—In view of the invitation to the Arabs to come to London, the government expects the Arab rebellious activities to cease and "if they do not end, the government must continue all measures necessary to end the disorders; 3—the discussions will be informal, no program being submitted for the purpose of a vote, the possibility being that out of the talks between representatives of the Arabs, of the neighboring countries, of the government and of the Jews "there may develop a round-table conference between the Jews and the Arabs"; 4— The United States will be kept fully informed of Britain's intentions. Holland Negotiating For Refugee Aid The Hague, (WNS)—Holland has opened negotiations with France, England, Denmark, Belgium and Switzerland to consider measures for aiding emigration of Jews from Germany, Premier Hendrikus Colijn told the Second Chamber of Parliament this week.

New York, (WNS)—Expressing relief but no surprise at the Woodhead Commission's conclusion that the partition of Palestine is not feasible, the executive committee of the American Non-Zionist Members of the Jewish Agency, which has been consistently opposed to partition, issued a statement here declaring "we are glad that the British Government has decided to convoke a round-table conference of Arabs and Jews, which we have long urged, because we believe that once the different elements of the population could come together for a full and frank discussion, a great deal would be gained." The committee, composed of Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of the Jewish Theological Seminary; Sol Stroock, chairman of the executive committee of the American Jewish Committee; and Dr. Maurice J. Karpf, expressed gratification at the "assurance of the British Government that they *will keep constantly in mind the international character of the Mandate with which they have been entrusted and their obligations in that respect.' We trust that they will reconsider the expressed intention of inviting representatives of thj neighboring countries to the proposed conference." .£J 1 ;

Titles of twenty subjects were written on individual sheets of paper and were placed in a box.

It was a real treat to hear the youngsters speak extemporaneously on the various topics including: history, current events and humor. All present agreed that these programs should be encouraged because it gives the participants self assurance. The Executive Director expects to repeat this program next Monday night. All are invited.

Six Months $2.00 $1.00 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1938 VOLUME 11—NUMBER 45. B'NAI B'RITH mm BRIEFS This has been a busy week for B'nai B'rith. Starting off with a bang last Monday, came the official announcement that the Hamburg-American Line was through and would not rear its hideous head in our vicinity. Tuesday morning many of the members enjoyed the sights on East Flagler Street, watching the removal of signs from the Hamburg-American offices. Don't blame the boys for feeling happy. THE BLACK CROOK NOW IT MAY BE TOLD As an evidence of what may be done by a determined band cf men, imbued with the knowledge of the righteousness and justice of their cause, we respectfully submit the following: In the latter part of July 1938, there appeared in the daily newspapers the announcement that the Hitler owned, Hitler operated Hamburg-American Line would operate passenger service between Havana and Key West starting on December 15th. Knowing the import of such a service, and the inevitable deluge of anti-Semitic propaganda accompanying the arrival of German boat* in this area, the B'nai B'rith anti-Defamation Committee began to marshall its forces to fight this menace. Resolutions were adopted by the Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith protesting the establishment of this line and copies were printed and forwarded to hundreds throughout this area. The Seamen's Union of the American Federation of Labor was contacted and their aid enlisted. The Jewish War Veteran's Post ir Miami, the Florida Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges, the Civic League as well as other Veteran's organizations and civic bodies were asked to adopt similar resolutions, which was done. Negotiations were begun with the Florida Motor Lines for the purpose of having them abrogate the announced tie-up with the Hamburg-American lines, and joint ticket and advertising arrangements. In the meantime the papers carried advertisements of a tie-up with the Seaboard Railway for joint advertising and ticket arrangements to New York City. Negotiations were then begun with the Railway, and protracted conferences were held with various officials of the Railway. Men prominent in the business life of this area were enlisted in the fight and thanks to the combined representations, the officials of the Seaboard Railway announced that they had abrogated their relations and would have nothing to do with the HamburgAmerican Line. Last week representatives of the Florida Motor Lines were in conference with members of the B'nai B'rith anti-Defamation Committee and they were urged to abrogate their arrangements for joint advertising and ticket arrangements. Last Friday the Florida Motor Lines advised that they had discontinued previous arrangements with the Hamburg-American Line and would no longer be associated with them. Last Sunday unofficial advice was received by the members of the committee that bereft of their traffic arrangements and in view of the battle that had been waged, the HamburgAmerican Line would in all probabilities be completely discontinued. Last Monday the City Officials of Key West were advised that the Hamburg-American Line scheduled to start December 15th, between Key West and Havana would not run and that the entire matter had been dropped. Last Tuesday official notices were published in the daily papers. Tuesday morning the large electric signs, and the window displays, including the Swastika were removed from the palatial offices of the Hamburg-American Line which had been opened in the heart of the Business section on East Flagler Street, and large "for rent signs placed in the windows. The members of the B'nai B'rith anti-Defamation Committee performed only their duty, and despite the fact Monday night the Executive Committee of the Anti-Defamation Committee held a four hour session listening to charges aga'nst certain firms in this community of having engaged in anti-Jewsh and pro-Nazi activities. A stenographic record of the proceedings were taken for future reference. The committee will render its verdict sometime this coming week after having given some careful thought and weighhing the evidence. A membership drive will begin soon with the untiring Matty Bandler leading the procession of Jews who realize their duty to the community and the value of a larger and ever growing B'nai Brith. B'nai B'rith was ably represented in the formation of the Greater Miami Refugee Co-ordinating Committee and will have a gigantic task if it undertakes, as we believe it will, the obtaining of employment for refugees, general rehabilitation and Americanization work. B'nai B'rith has never shirked its duty in this area and has faced what seemed to be unsurmountable obstacles without flinching. Those of you who desire to vote should bear in mind that dues must be paid. Why not send your check now without further ado. 50CIET1 that SPECIAL BROADCAST TO BE HEARD Some of the most prominent non-Jews in this area will be heard in a special broadcast over Station WQAM this coming Sunday, November 20th from 2:35 to 3:00 p. m. o'clock in a discussion of conditions in Germany today. • • • GIRL IS BORN Mr. and Mrs. Harry A.

myMB %  %  %  FRIDAY NOVEMBER 18, 1938 HE ANNOUNCED THE ARMISTICE The Jewish Courier of the War's End _THB JBWI8H FLORIDIA1C (BY SIMON FLAGER) Yesterday's her and today's forgotten nan la George Roth, a dispatch rider of the 319th Signal Batallion, who waa the courier entrusted by Marshal Forh with carrying the news of the figning of the Armistice to the American high command twenty years ago. —THE EDITOR. On November 11th, 1918, the number of American troops in France had risen to two million, divided into a First Army commanded by General Liggett, and a Second Army commanded by General Bullard. The First Army stretched from tha outskirts of Sedan to a point just southwest of Metz, a distance of more than sixty miles, while the Second Army was concentrated east of the Meuse. Both were ready for a newly prepared offensive against the untouched front in Lorraine scheduled to begin November 14th. Among the American troops was a Jewish doughboy from Springfield, Ohio, who for more than a year had been riding his mud-spattered motorcycle through a gauntlet of shellfire and bursting bombs carrying dispatches. He had carried thousands of them over all sorts of roads and under all sorts of conditions. But on November 11th destiny had picked him to carry the news of one of the most historic events of modern times, the signing of the Armistice that ended the World War. On November 6th the German high command realized that all was over and sent emissaries to Marshal Ferdinand Foch, generalissimo of the Allied Forces, to sue for peace. Two days later Foch received the German plenipotentiaries in his private train in the heart of the Compiegne Forest, north of Paris. Without wasting time on formalities, Foch read the terms of the Armistice and said: "Gentlemen, I leave this text with you. You have seventy-two hours to reply to it." When Mathias Erzberger, leader of the German delegates, later to be assisnated by some of the men who became important figures in the Nazi party, pleaded with Foch not to wait for seventy-two hours, but to stop hostilities at once, Foch remained adamant and demanded word from German head quarters. For the next twenty-j four hours messagea flashed back ___,__onlAIir m^-v and forth between the German | NEW STORE TO lines and Berlin. When the Kaiser abdicated on November 9th and a new government took over the reins, Foch's ultimatum had forty-eight hours to go. It was then that the new German Government sent its delegates the orders to accent the Armistice. To the Eiffel Tower wireless station in Paris was flashed the messajre^'The German government acants." That was on the "ieht of November 10th. The seventv-two hours would be over at dawn. For twelve hours the delegates labored over the terms and at 5:15 A. M.. the Armistice was "itrned in Foch's railroad car. While all this waa going on, Dispatch Rider Leon George Roth of 'he 818th Signal Battalion. First Army, waa waiting outside, leaning against the hulk of a tree scarred by sheila. He had juat returned f n hie post carrying aealed orders. 't was cold and Roth smoked a f'Rarette while waiting for instructions. He didn't know what was Opening in that train. He didn't even know Foch waa there. His cigarette was still burning when an orderly burst out of the train, shoved some papers into it and shoved sime papers into it and inatructed him to ride like mad to the First Army Headquarters near Souilly. Mounting his motorcycle, he plowed through mud and shell holes, ducking shrapnel and screaming shells overhead. It was just another assignment, thought he, like others he had carried out under sim-lar circumstances since his arrival in France. Once he skidded into a shell hole. It was choked with bodies. He picked himself up and mounted his machine and was off again, praying he would get through alive and wishing the war were over. When he roared into headquarters there was a hole in his scalp where a piece of shrapnel had buried itaelf during his wild ride through the early dawn. Saluting, he handed J over his dispatch can. In a few minutes the air was rent with wild cries of happiness. The gunfire had ceased. The smoke from shells disappeared. A lieutenant came over and informed Roth the war was over. The orders he had carried contained the Armistice. Firing was to cease at 11:00 A. M., on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. Not until it was all clear did Roth know that he had played a stellar role in the crowning drama of the World War. A couple of weeks later Roth's exploit was rewarded when the First Army decorated him with the Distinguished Service Medal and a French General pinned the Croix de Guerre on his breast. The war over, Roth went back to Springfield. He is a plumber by trade. But today he hasn't a job. The unsung hero of November 11th, 1918 can't support his wife. We first heard about Roth during the New York convention of the American Legion. Alone and forgotten he wandered through the city which had been the scene of an unprecedented display of joy on November 11th, 1918. Roth isn't the sort of fellow who talks much. But in the years that have elapsed since he carried the news of the Armistice he must have thought a great deal about the fate of heroes.
