DECEMBER 9, 1938 THE JEWISH FLOREDIAN fjewisti fleridii&n PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY P. O. Box 2978 PLANT AND OFFICES 21 B. W. Second Avenue J. LOUIS SHOCHET, Editor FRED K. SHOCHET, Circulation Manager Entered as second class matter July 4, 1930, at the Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, the Post Office at 1879 OFFICES IN PRINCIPAL FLORIDA CITIES PAGE THREE SUBSCRIPTION One year .... Six Months ... $2.00 Another Anti-Semite to battle, and remove from the vicinity of decent, patriotic people. Such a battle was made in the past week and we are advised that our efforts will be crowned with success. The honorable men in the local chapter of the Order of the Purple Heart certainly cannot afford to be associated with one whose patriotism is besmirched with hatred of his fellow men and whose mind is warped by un-Americanism. We are certainly indebted to Jack Bell of the Daily News, Inspector McCarthy, and the rest of the gentlemen of the organization for the fine spirit they have shown in this instanceCLAP HANDS HERE COMES SAMUEL $1.00 FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1938 VOLUME 11. NUMBER 49 A colossal job faces the new administration of B'nai B'rith. The Installation banquet which we have held in past years was marred by exceptionally poor arrangements for several years and was followed by a loss of membersLast year all were satisfied. We must profit by the mistakes of the past, and we must ever bear in mind that in B'nai B'rith all men are equal. WHAT ARE WE TO DO? What has happened here in Miami in recent months is, we believe, sufficient answer to the query '' What are we Jews to do these days?" Perhaps the fact that we in Miami have not been afraid to speak out when our rights and privileges as American citizens were involved has brought about a greater feeling of good will between Jews and non-Jews than has ever before existed in local history. Within the past week, because of the carelessness of one of oor own, a notorious anti-Semite became an officer in a local Patriotic organization. His fellow officers were all men of standing, and were shocked when the un-American activities of this man was brought to their attention. Definite steps were taken by our non-Jewish friends to rid themselves of this man to whom patriotism and racial hatred meant one and the same thing. This is but one of many instances in the past year where Jews have spoken out and made themselves heard. It is but proof of the ineradicable fact that the "sha-sha" policy has no room here. It is only when we demand that which is due us as American citisens that we will be able to stamp out these vicious breeders of hatred whose aim it is to ultmately destroy democracy itself. And this same course of action followed wherever the ugly head of anti,8emitism and intolerance rears its head will result in the ultimate destruction of those who try to preach hatreds and un-American doctrines. B'NAI B'RITH BRIEFS (BY E. ALBERT PALLOT) We're on the home stretch. And *e've moved to the Scottish Rite Temple for th final show down The race is an and the fleetest will win. Talk is there'll be a banner attendance to decide the issues toore the voters that nightElection of officers will be held and •H members are urged to attend •nd cast their votes. Matty Bandler chairman of the Membership Campaign is all enthused and is gosh mighty certain f getting five hundred members. More power to him and the rest of the boys who're helping him in his work. Miami is now B'nai B r 'th minded and we've got to k *ep them that way. The boys made a fine showing at Tallahassee we're told though Orlando stole the show with their fine degree team. How about our degree team, Jack? The treasurer of the District "Hyman Jacobs" paid us a snappy but too short visit the other day. Dame Rumor says that he would have stayed on were it not for the election next Tuesday night. How many boys are beginning to save up for winter overcoats 80 as to be able to attend the district convention at Charleston the end of February, which by the way, we are informed, was set up purposely three months ahead of schedule so that M.amim.ght have less delegates attend.ng.

We hope .11 these reports are true. We need such a man. And. once more Miami Lodge should get the cred,t for getting things startedAnother job is the intensification of a boycott of German made goods. This work must be done and B'nai B'rith must do it. It will be up to the new officers to get this started and kept up.

BIRON ON THE BENCH The columnists axe having; a -ood time debating the future of jut>f ljoai DBr ndel • 0" (oople has announced that while justice is going to resign before the next term of the Supreme Court opens he is not planning to become the president of the Zionist organisation. Then there is the lady gossiper who has it all doped out that Brandeia will resign erly in 1939 and that the President will appoint Judge Julian W Mack as his successor. Which incidentally, is a lot of nonsenseJudge Mack, whose health is none too good, feels like retiring from active bench work himself. NAZI STUFF While the Fuehrer shrieks that Nazism will survive for the next several thousand years, his adjutants are preparing for the inevitable day of reckoning. And, realistically they're hoarding funds in foreign banks .... Goerring for example, has two private accounts in a London bank .... *Goebbles has a private safe at Lloyd's Bank in London. Hess keeps his treasure chest in Riga And the sinister von Pappen believes that his fortune is safest in the Bank of France, in Paris. Statistics about railway accidents of various sorts, particularly train collisions, in Naziland prove that the talk about German efficiency under the Hitler regime is baloney. %  More such catastrophes have been taking place there in the last few years than in any other country. • YOU SHOULD KNOW There is a plan to use German refugees as American business representatives in Latin America, on the theory that they will prove to be the most reliable fighters against the Naii penetration into those lands. The research director of the newly-formed—and most impressive — Provisional Council against anti-Semitism, of which Senator Barbour is the Chairman, is none other than James Waterman Wise. Is it true that steel magnate H. HRobinson is ready to contribute $500,000 for the bringing of refugees from Germany to this country? Kurt Weill, one of Hitler's victims, who is accumulating successes as a composer in this country, still is one of the best-sellers in German music stores in the U. S. His German music sheets are exported from Naziland to swell Hitler's treasury. • But don't buy any of them. For, as you would expect, Weill doesn't get any royalties on these sales. The best comment on Lindbergh's intention to live in Germany was made by Wolcott Gibbs, who wrote "If he wants to experiment further *'th the artificial heart, his surroundings in Naxiland should be ideal." THIS AND THAT "Frightened Stiff* is the caption L'fe magazine chose for a picture showing Goering'i baby daughterflanked by her father and Adolf. Well, who wouldn't be? • • Hendrick Van Loon, in his recently published "Our Battle," hii answer to Hitler, implies that Jew-gobbler Goebbels must be partly Jewish himself.

that George Rublee, American di-

Germany and attempt to induce
Hitler to release the Jews with at
least a portion of their property.
One after another the countries I
of refuge have been coming for-
ward with offers of settlement for
the Jews of Germany. It is un-
derstood, however, that only with
German cooperation can the re-
settlement project be financed
since funds available, chiefly from
private sources in the United
States, are not sufficient-
Austral a has announced her de-
rision to admit 15,000 refugees
during the next 3 years not ac-
cording to any monthly or yearly
quota, but to be accepted with
government permits issued at the
I government's discretion.
The Jewish Welfare Society,

, absorption. The Council is under
the chairmanship of the Lord
Mayor of Melbourne.
I Great Britain, through Earl
I Wintertnn, chairman of the com-

New York City, (WNS)Four
thousand celebrants at "German
Day" here yesterday heard Thom-
as Mann, world famous writer and
self-exile from Naziland, say that
the German masses "will sooner or
later free themselves."
The keynote of the gathering
was struck by one of the organi-
zation's officers, Dr. Frank Bohn,
who said, "The League enlists
those for a battle which has drawn
its lines, without exception, thru
the worldthe battle against man
kind's great enemyfascism."
A recitation calling for the de-
fense of the Jewish victims of
Hitler and the general victims of
the Nazis was given by Alfred

resolution approving President
Roosevelt's "stand against Nazi
barbarism" and urged an embargo
on Nazi goods.

BATTLE OF MUSIC
New York, (WNS)Dr. Nahum
Goldmann, chairman of the admin-
istrative committee of the World
Jewish Congress, here on a two-
week visit to confer with Jewish
leaders on the refugee problem,
suggested a five-year plan under
which he believes 350,000 to 400,-
of Germany's 500,000 Jews might
be absorbed in havens throughout
the world.
Palestine, he said, is prepared
to receive immediately 100,000
Jews from Germany if Great Bri-
tain would lift present immigra-
tion restrictions.
Within 5 years another 50,000
could be absorbed there.
The United States, he said, could
take 100,000 in five years without
altering its present immigration
quotas; South America and British
Dominions, 100,000; Australia, 20,-
000; other European nations, 20,-
000; and 300,000 Jews in Germany

Asked why they were giving
such a statement to a Hebrew
newspaper instead of to an Arabic

pers refuse to publish statements
which condemn the Mufti's activi-

whom have fled abroad, fear re-

Another Anti-Semite to battle,

The honorable men in the local

be associated with one whose pat-

of his fellow men and whose mind
is warped by un-Americanism. We

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1938
VOLUME 11. NUMBER 49
A colossal job faces the new ad-
ministration of B'nai B'rith. The
Installation banquet which we have
held in past years was marred by
exceptionally poor arrangements
for several years and was followed
by a loss of members- Last year
all were satisfied. We must profit
by the mistakes of the past, and
we must ever bear in mind that in
B'nai B'rith all men are equal.
WHAT ARE WE TO DO?
What has happened here in Miami in recent months is, we
believe, sufficient answer to the query '' What are we Jews to
do these days?"
Perhaps the fact that we in Miami have not been afraid to
speak out when our rights and privileges as American citizens
were involved has brought about a greater feeling of good will
between Jews and non-Jews than has ever before existed in
local history.
Within the past week, because of the carelessness of one of
oor own, a notorious anti-Semite became an officer in a local
Patriotic organization. His fellow officers were all men of
standing, and were shocked when the un-American activities of
this man was brought to their attention. Definite steps were
taken by our non-Jewish friends to rid themselves of this man
to whom patriotism and racial hatred meant one and the same
thing.
This is but one of many instances in the past year where
Jews have spoken out and made themselves heard. It is but
proof of the ineradicable fact that the "sha-sha" policy has no
room here. It is only when we demand that which is due us as
American citisens that we will be able to stamp out these vic-
ious breeders of hatred whose aim it is to ultmately destroy
democracy itself. .
And this same course of action followed wherever the ugly
head of anti,8emitism and intolerance rears its head will result
in the ultimate destruction of those who try to preach hatreds
and un-American doctrines.

More power to him and the rest

The boys made a fine showing
at Tallahassee we're told though
Orlando stole the show with their
fine degree team. How about our
degree team, Jack?
The treasurer of the District
"Hyman Jacobs" paid us a snappy
but too short visit the other day.
Dame Rumor says that he would

election next Tuesday night.
How many boys are beginning
to save up for winter overcoats

trict convention at Charleston the
end of February, which by the
way, we are informed, was set up
purposely three months ahead of

"Y" TO STAGE BATTLE OF
MUSIC SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18
Yessiree folkses you ladies and
gentlemen are in for the greatest
entertainment and musical treat
ever presented by the Y. M. H. A.
At a special meeting held in the
offices of our general chairman,
E. Albert Pallot the committee of
entertainment headed by Dr. Mil-
ton Saslow has definitely arranged
to have two orchestras playing
continuously for our seventh an-
nual ball, Sunday, December 18th
at the beautiful Miami Civic
Center-
A return match of the Battle of
Music, with Bill Ferrara and his
orchestra, winner of the All-Mi-
ami Band contest recently held at
Civic Center versus Maurice Weiss
and his orchestra, runnerup in the
same contest. Besides the battle
of music there will be numerous
entertainers and celebrities to sat-
isfy your every desire. Don't get
caught short, make your reserva-
tions now by calling the Y- M. H.
A.3-4012, ask for Maurice Gross-
man or Leon Lieberman. For your
tickets see Nat Blumberg or most
any member oflethe Y. Tickets are
11.00 per person with the entire
receipts going to the building
fund-
Every member of the dance com-
mittee from the Executive Direc-
tor, Maurice Grossman down to
Harry Smart, the caretaker, are
working tirelessly to make this af-
fair the best ever held. Now all
we ask is your generous coopera-
tion in purchasing tickets and at-
tending with your entire family.
You may dress formal or informal
and feel very much at home.
By the way, in conjunction with
the sale of tickeU there will be
a popularity contest with the prise
of a beautiful trophy going to the
young lady representing the or-
ganisation in the Greater Miami
area disposing of the most tickets.
Every ticket sold represents a vote.
Get behind your favorite.

campaign.
In fact if there's anything Nit
and Herman overlooked on the
program no one in attendance
could possibly tell you what it
could have been. Let's have more
like 'em 'cause everyone in town
is talking Y. M. H- A., .nd if it
requires Stag Smokers, let's give
them Stag Smokers.
If in my humble manner I have
failed to arouse enough interest in
you to purchase a ticket and attend
this Show of Shows then my res-
ignation as a "Y" columnist will
take effect immediately following
the seventh annual. Nothing has
been spared in presenting the.
Battle of Music and entertainment
for your pleasure and if you fail
to attend I can't help but feel
that my efforts in selling you
through this medium have failed.
We need many things at the "Y"
for the hundreds of youngsters
who attend the various classes
weekly. An athletic field is ur-
gently needed and we can only
hope to realize this by your pur-
chase of tickets-
Don't forget the date, Sunday,
December 18th at Miami Civic

To deport a Jew to Central Eu-

punishment." Mr. Weinberg was
born in a part of Austria-Hungary

Strictly Confidential
By PHINEAS J. BIRON
ON THE BENCH
The columnists axe having; a
-ood time debating the future of
jut>f ljoai* D- Br*ndel- 0"
(oople has announced that while
justice is going to resign before
the next term of the Supreme
Court opens he is not planning to
become the president of the Zion-
ist organisation. Then there is
the lady gossiper who has it all
doped out that Brandeia will resign
erly in 1939 and that the Pres-
ident will appoint Judge Julian W
Mack as his successor. Which
incidentally, is a lot of nonsense-
Judge Mack, whose health is none
too good, feels like retiring from
active bench work himself. .
NAZI STUFF
While the Fuehrer shrieks that
Nazism will survive for the next
several thousand years, his adjut-
ants are preparing for the inevi-
table day of reckoning. And,
realistically they're hoarding funds
in foreign banks .... Goerring
for example, has two private ac-
counts in a London bank ....
*Goebbles has a private safe at
Lloyd's Bank in London. Hess
keeps his treasure chest in Riga .
And the sinister von Pappen be-
lieves that his fortune is safest in
the Bank of France, in Paris. .
Statistics about railway accidents
of various sorts, particularly train
collisions, in Naziland prove that
the talk about German efficiency
under the Hitler regime is balon-
ey. More such catastrophes
have been taking place there in the
last few years than in any other
country- .
YOU SHOULD KNOW
There is a plan to use German
refugees as American business
representatives in Latin America,
on the theory that they will prove
to be the most reliable fighters
against the Naii penetration into
those lands. The research di-
rector of the newly-formedand
most impressive Provisional
Council against anti-Semitism, of
which Senator Barbour is the
Chairman, is none other than
James Waterman Wise. Is it
true that steel magnate H. H- Rob-
inson is ready to contribute $500,-
000 for the bringing of refugees
from Germany to this country?
Kurt Weill, one of Hitler's
victims, who is accumulating suc-
cesses as a composer in this coun-
try, still is one of the best-sellers
in German music stores in the U.
S. His German music sheets
are exported from Naziland to
swell Hitler's treasury. But
don't buy any of them- For, as
you would expect, Weill doesn't
get any royalties on these sales.
The best comment on Lindbergh's
intention to live in Germany was
made by Wolcott Gibbs, who wrote
"If he wants to experiment further
*'th the artificial heart, his sur-
roundings in Naxiland should be
ideal." .

WILLIAM PENN HOTEL
ANNOUNCES NEW POLICY
The William Penn Hotel, fam-
ous Miami Beach hostelry situated
on the William Penn Triangle at
Seventh Street to Washington and
Pennsylvania Avenues, has recent-
ly been acquired by the manage-
ment of The Tides Hotel of Miami
Beach.
Messrs. Cohen, Grundwerg and
Ginsberg, the new owners, have
expended $25,000 on a moderniza-
tion program that transformed
this famous hotel into a modern
structure of beauty, charm and
guest comfort. Included in the
complete renovation to this onel
hundred and two room fireproof
building that contains a private
bath and shower to each guest
room, is a newly enlarged dining
room to seat three hundred people
at one time, in which only the fin-
est kosher food will be served-
An expert staff of chefs of in-
ternational fame has been engaged
and all foods will be prepared (ac-
cording to Orthodox dietary) in
two separate sanitary kitchens.
New murals, drapes, furnishings,
rugs, indirect lighting and a mod-
ernistic illuminated glass entrance
all have achieved the modern note.
The background acquired by the
Ginsberg in the years of successful
Messrs- Cohen, Grundwerg and
hotel operation has given them the]
foresight to provide for the host
of Jewry a hotel comparable in
cuisine, service, entertainment and
comfort to The Tides Hotel.
The William Penn Hotel is only
a block and a half from the ocean
and will feature both the Ameri-
can and European plans at a mod-
erate scale of rates-
The opening of the William
Penn Hotel was officially cele-
brated on Tuesday evening, De-
cember 6th, when a crowd of 300
persons representing every walk of
civic, professional and business
men attended a banquet, etc.

USE ADVERTISING FOR SELLING ... NOT FOR CONTRIBUTING
WE BELIEVE IN Chahilyl
I
Don't get us wrong! We believe in
charity. Wo always CONTRIBUTE
to a worthy cause. But we don't be-
lieve in contributing to charity un-
der the guise of advertising. Adver-
tising is a willing worker that can
stand on its own feet, do a good job
of selling for us and GET RESULTS.
Like the tourist season, the "adver-
tising season" begins at this time
of year. A great many new, untried
and miscellaneous advertising
schemes are being sold to Miami
business men. Each of these should
FIRST undergo the scrutiny of the
Fair Practice Bureau. Each solicitor
should FIRST secure an Advertising
Permit under Miami Ordinance
1257. Insist on seeing the Permit
when an unknown advertising solici-
tor calls.
