Britain Offers Refugees, Colonies London, (WNS—The British Government is prepared to lease it least 10,000 square miles of territory in British Guiani, on the northeastern coast of South America, to provide a refuge for per %  eruted German Jews and is also ready to cooperate in settling smaller numbers of Jews in Tanganyika, a former German colony now under mandate to England, as well as in the Northern Rhodesia. Nyasaland and Kenya, crown colonies in Africa, Prime Minister Chamberlain informed the House of Commons before the opening of a debate on the Labor Party's resolution "deploring the treatment of Jews in Germany and welcoming some concerted and immediate efforts by nations, including the United States, to secure a common 001107." Chamberlain's announcement is said to be an outcome of a comprehensive plan worked out by Joseph P. Kennedy. United States ambassador, and laid before the British cabinet last week. While emphasizing that "Palestine cannot provide a solution of the .Tewsh refugee problem, that Britain alone cannot carry the entire b'irden. Chamberlain declared that "however great our desire to assist, the possibilities of settlement within the Emo're are strictly limited," Chamberlain said the government planned to invite representatives of private refugee organizations to send representatives to British Guina to make a survey of colonization prospects. "Provided results of these survey ure satisfactory," he declared, "the government contemplates the lease of large areas on generous terms under conditions to be settled hereafter.

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 26, 1938 PRICE FIVE CENTS Miami Christians Denounce Outrages Leading Christians in the Greater Miami area were aroused by the German outrages against Jews during the past week. The daily papers carried editorials and cartoons denouncing Germany. Last Sunday afternoon Station WQAM donated time for the expression of their protests to a group of Christians which included Dan H. Redfern, president of the Dade County Bar Association, Judge David A. Hefferman, leading Catholic layman and Judge of the Civil Court of Record, Mrs. T. T. Stevens, active worker and leader in the Florida Federation of Womens Clubs, William C. Hill, leading churchman and postmaster of Miami, and Alexander Orr, Jr., leading civic worker and former city commissioner. They urged that Americans make a concerted effort to protest agains the uncivilized destructive actions of the German government. Leading Christian minist e r s made the persecutions of the Jews in Germany the subject of their sermons last Sunday and a group requested that the Rabbis give them the Rabbinical Hour over Station WIOD to express their protest which was done. Among those who spoke were: Rev. C. A. Vincent, Rev. C. Stanley Lowell, Rev. Vincent Odom, Rev. M. Squires, and Rev. C. R. Pittard. Federation Begins Pre-Campaign Work to cooperate in any schemes of settlement of refugees as far as existing obligations will permit," Chamberlain said. "The governor ures of the total area which could has expressed the view that the be made available, but it would only suitable areas for large-scale certainly not be less than 10,000. settlements are likely to be found square miles. (British Guina has in the southern highlands and in an area of 89,480 square miles— part of the western province." EDITOR) and possibly more." At the same time the Prime Chamberlain made it plain that Minister revealed that the gover-; i n these projects the cost of nor of Tanganyika, which is on Peering the land and settling the eastern coast of Africa, be-"**"" %  *" land 8 "g" tween the Belgian Congo, Mozam*"• would be the responsibility bique (Portugese East Africa) and Kenya, had advised the Colonial Office that 10,000 acres of land would be available there for colonization by Gernjan-Jewish refugee*. "Further investigation will be required," however, before this Project can become definite Chamberlain said. The possibility of small-scale •ettlements in Nysaland, which is due South of Tanganyika, and in Northern Rhodesia, which is north of the Union of South Africa, also exists, he added. In Kenya Colony, he said, a small experimental refugee colony had already been approved and if the first colonista succeed they wOl be followed by others. ^'-th regard to Tanganyika the governor of that colony informed the government of "his readiness of private refugee organizations The cost has been estimated at $150,000,000. The present Jewish population of British Guina is 1,800, most of whom live in the principal city, Georgetown. Tanganyika has about 100 Jews while Northern Rhodesia has 500 and Kenya about 250. There are no known Jews in Nyasaland. In conclud'ng his announcement the Prime Minister made it plain that the success of refugee aid ulans was dependent in large measure on the cooperation of Germany. The ability of countries to absorb Jews, re declared, "must denend to some extent on the condit'ons under which they leave their own countryThe country of origin should make its contribution to this problem by enabling Marking the beginning of precampaign work for the Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds a series of meetings were held in the past week.

New Orleans, La.—Joseph Hahn Korff, 88, described by post office inspectors as an un-naturalized German, was indicted last Tuesday by a federal grand Jury on seven counts of sending "threatening, defamatory and scurrilous" material through the mails. The indictment charged HahnKorff with sending letters to a number of Tulane faculty members, including Dr. Alton Ochsner, professor of surgery at the university's medical school, and William Weigand, columnist of The Orleans Item. Hahn-Korff is a former chemist in the Tulane department of surgery. At the time of his arrest Dr. Ochsner said the letter to him had probably been sent because he was responsible for Hahn-Korffs discharge. Federal officials said the letters were signed by Hahn-Korff as "secretary of the League for Restoration of Aryan Supremacy In America."

C, (WNS)— That the whole question of what part the United States will play in aiding the 700,000 persecuted Jews in Germany and how far it will go in extending aid will come before the 76th Congress, became a certainty when President Roosevelt declared his intention of laying the entire refugee problem before the next session of Congress. He made this announcement in a statement revealing he had instructed Secretary of Labor Perkins to extend for six months the viras of between 12,000 and 15,000 refugees from Germany now in this country on visitors' permits. Seeking to prevent the enforced return of these refugees until their ultimate destiny Is determined, the President said he took this unprecedented step because all precepts of human deI cency forbade ejecting them to most famous criminal lawyers, accepted a request from the Journalist?

LATE FRIDAY EVENING SERVICES Services will be conducted at the Beth David Synagogue Friday evening at 8:15 o'clock. Rabbi Shapiro will officiate and Cantor Hayman, assisted by the Beth David choir will chant the liturgic melodies. In view of the Thanksgiving day observance held annually, Rabbi Shapiro will discuss the subject: "Thanking God in Sorrow." ADULT GROUP MEETING This coming Sunday morning the first group of parents and friends will take place for the purpose of discussing Jewish ideals, principles and ceremonies Rabbi Max Shapiro will conduct the discussion group every Sunday morning from 10:30 to 11:30. We ask every one who is interested to attend. BAR MITZVAH GROUP The first session of the Bar Mitzvah boys took place last Sunday morning. A splendid attendance greeted the Bar Mitzvah course with a determination to continue to come every Sunday morning at 9:00 o'clock. All boys between the ages of 12 and over are asked to join. Mr. Louis Gadon conducts this group with special emphasis on traditional chanting of all portions of law. RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION Our educational groups are making remarkable progress due to the conscientious efforts on the parts of all teachers. Close to 240 children are attending our Sunday School indicating that the registration within the next few weeks will reach more than 300. Class room facilities have been arranged to meet the requirements of such a tremendous registration. Over 50 children are attending our daily Hebrew school under capable instruction. We hope that parents will realize the importance of such an education and be prompted to send their children at once. SABBATH SERVICES Unquestionably, the parents who attend our Junior services every Saturday morning at 10:30 become so inspired as to actually participate in the services. We feel that every parent should apP'eciate the significance of instilling in the hearts of their children a reverence for Sabbath Synagogical attendance. We urge a greater attendance in the future, for these services.

Britain Offers
Refugees, Colonies
London, (WNSThe British
Government is prepared to lease
it least 10,000 square miles of
territory in British Guiani, on the
northeastern coast of South Amer-
ica, to provide a refuge for per
eruted German Jews and is also
ready to cooperate in settling
smaller numbers of Jews in Tan-
ganyika, a former German colony
now under mandate to England,
as well as in the Northern Rhod-
esia. Nyasaland and Kenya, crown
colonies in Africa, Prime Minis-
ter Chamberlain informed the
House of Commons before the op-
ening of a debate on the Labor
Party's resolution "deploring the
treatment of Jews in Germany and
welcoming some concerted and
immediate efforts by nations, in-
cluding the United States, to se-
cure a common 001107." Chamber-
lain's announcement is said to be
an outcome of a comprehensive
plan worked out by Joseph P. Ken-
nedy. United States ambassador,
and laid before the British cabi-
net last week.
While emphasizing that "Pales-
tine cannot provide a solution of
the .Tewsh refugee problem, that
Britain alone cannot carry the en-
tire b'irden. Chamberlain declared
that "however great our desire to
assist, the possibilities of settle-
ment within the Emo're are strict-
ly limited," Chamberlain said the
government planned to invite rep-
resentatives of private refugee
organizations to send representa-
tives to British Guina to make a
survey of colonization prospects.
"Provided results of these sur-
vey ure satisfactory," he declar-
ed, "the government contemplates
the lease of large areas on gener-

Miami Christians
Denounce Outrages
Leading Christians in the Great-
er Miami area were aroused by
the German outrages against Jews
during the past week. The daily
papers carried editorials and car-
toons denouncing Germany. Last
Sunday afternoon Station WQAM
donated time for the expression of
their protests to a group of Chris-
tians which included Dan H. Red-
fern, president of the Dade Coun-
ty Bar Association, Judge David
A. Hefferman, leading Catholic
layman and Judge of the Civil
Court of Record, Mrs. T. T. Stev-
ens, active worker and leader in
the Florida Federation of Womens
Clubs, William C. Hill, leading
churchman and postmaster of Mi-
ami, and Alexander Orr, Jr., lead-
ing civic worker and former city
commissioner. They urged that
Americans make a concerted effort
to protest agains the uncivilized
destructive actions of the German
government.
Leading Christian minist e r s
made the persecutions of the Jews
in Germany the subject of their
sermons last Sunday and a group
requested that the Rabbis give
them the Rabbinical Hour over
Station WIOD to express their pro-
test which was done. Among those
who spoke were: Rev. C. A. Vin-
cent, Rev. C. Stanley Lowell, Rev.
Vincent Odom, Rev. M. Squires,
and Rev. C. R. Pittard.

be required," however, before this
Project can become definite Cham-
berlain said.
The possibility of small-scale
ettlements in Nysaland, which is
due South of Tanganyika, and in
Northern Rhodesia, which is north
of the Union of South Africa, also
exists, he added. In Kenya Col-
ony, he said, a small experimental

others.

of British Guina is 1,800, most of
whom live in the principal city,
Georgetown. Tanganyika has
about 100 Jews while Northern
Rhodesia has 500 and Kenya about
250. There are no known Jews in
Nyasaland.
In conclud'ng his announcement
the Prime Minister made it plain
that the success of refugee aid
ulans was dependent in large mea-
sure on the cooperation of Ger-
many. The ability of countries to
absorb Jews, re declared, "must

New Orleans, La.Joseph Hahn
Korff, 88, described by post of-
fice inspectors as an un-naturaliz-
ed German, was indicted last
Tuesday by a federal grand Jury
on seven counts of sending
"threatening, defamatory and
scurrilous" material through the
mails.
The indictment charged Hahn-
Korff with sending letters to a
number of Tulane faculty mem-
bers, including Dr. Alton Ochsner,
professor of surgery at the univer-
sity's medical school, and William
Weigand, columnist of The Or-
leans Item.
Hahn-Korff is a former chemist
in the Tulane department of sur-
gery.
At the time of his arrest Dr.
Ochsner said the letter to him had
probably been sent because he was
responsible for Hahn-Korffs dis-
charge.
Federal officials said the letters
were signed by Hahn-Korff as
"secretary of the League for Re-
storation of Aryan Supremacy In
America."

That the whole question of what
part the United States will play
in aiding the 700,000 persecuted
Jews in Germany and how far it
will go in extending aid will come
before the 76th Congress, became
a certainty when President Roose-
velt declared his intention of lay-
ing the entire refugee problem be-
fore the next session of Congress.
He made this announcement in
a statement revealing he had in-
structed Secretary of Labor Per-
kins to extend for six months the
viras of between 12,000 and 15,-
000 refugees from Germany now
in this country on visitors' per-
mits. Seeking to prevent the en-
forced return of these refugees
until their ultimate destiny Is de-
termined, the President said he

close of the case in which the

charges against them. The com-
plete decision appears elsewhere in
the Jewish Floridian and is self-

WE ARE THANKFUL
We are indeed thankful to our many Christian friends for
their spontaneous outbursts of indignation against the German
atrocities against the defenseless Jewish people. We appreciate

The budget of the Jewish Agen-
cy for the fiscal year 1938-39,
which is supplied by the Keren
Hayesod, was set at $5,000,000 by
the Agency's Administrative Com-
mittee at its meeting here. This
sum is separate from the obliga-
tions of the Jewish National Fund
which is expected to require at
least another $5,000,000 during the
same period.
The Agency's budget includes
'237,000 for colonization; /150,-
000 for security and political pur-
poses; /150,000 for aid of local la-
bor activities; /80.000 to stimulate
trade and industry; and /40.000 to
aid immigration. The budget of
the Z-'onist Executive, as distinct
from the actual upbuilding pro-

was fixed at $200,000. based on a city,

Shapiro will officiate and Cantor
Hayman, assisted by the Beth
David choir will chant the liturgic
melodies.
In view of the Thanksgiving day
observance held annually, Rabbi
Shapiro will discuss the subject:
"Thanking God in Sorrow."
ADULT GROUP MEETING
This coming Sunday morning
the first group of parents and
friends will take place for the
purpose of discussing Jewish
ideals, principles and ceremonies
Rabbi Max Shapiro will conduct
the discussion group every Sunday
morning from 10:30 to 11:30. We
ask every one who is interested to
attend.
BAR MITZVAH GROUP
The first session of the Bar
Mitzvah boys took place last Sun-
day morning. A splendid atten-
dance greeted the Bar Mitzvah
course with a determination to
continue to come every Sunday
morning at 9:00 o'clock. All boys
between the ages of 12 and over
are asked to join. Mr. Louis Ga-
don conducts this group with spec-
ial emphasis on traditional chant-
ing of all portions of law.
RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION
Our educational groups are mak-
ing remarkable progress due to
the conscientious efforts on the
parts of all teachers. Close to
240 children are attending our
Sunday School indicating that the
registration within the next few
weeks will reach more than 300.
Class room facilities have been
arranged to meet the requirements
of such a tremendous registration.
Over 50 children are attending
our daily Hebrew school under
capable instruction. We hope that
parents will realize the importance
of such an education and be
prompted to send their children at
once.
SABBATH SERVICES
Unquestionably, the parents
who attend our Junior services
every Saturday morning at 10:30
become so inspired as to actually
participate in the services. We
feel that every parent should ap-
P'eciate the significance of instil-
ling in the hearts of their children
a reverence for Sabbath Synagog-
ical attendance.
We urge a greater attendance in
the future, for these services.
BY BANK FIRM
The Dade Federal Savinngs and
Loan Association of Miami Mon-
day paid 195,000.00 to the Guar-
dian Life Insurance Company for
the two-story building on the
'southeast corner at N. E. Firat
Avenue and First Street
Purchase of the building, erect-
ed to house the now defunct Mi-
ami Bank and Trust Company, was
announced by Joseph M. Lipton,
.president of the savings and loan
association which will remodel it
for its expanding business.
"We are proud to have partici-
pated along with the other finan-
cial institutions of Miami in the
growth of the city," Lipton said.
"The Federal Savings and Loan
Associations of Greater Miami are
largely responsible for the city's
continued building activity. With
these new quarters we hope to of-
fer to the public better facilities
for continuing this growth."
The loan association will contin-
ue to occupy its present quarters
in the Congress building until its
new building is renovated. The
remodeling probably will be com-
pleted in the early part of next
summer.
The organization has grown in
assets from $75,000 in 1934, when
it was opened, to more than $2,-
600,000. Attorney Gus Feuer rep-
resented the purchaser.
Other officers of the savings
and loan association are Leo Rob-

' President Roosevelt would, of
curse, support us to the limit in

chairman of the commission, de-
clared in a speech before the
