King, as the principal speakervoice a demand that the United States sever •.ts diplomatic relations with Germany and any other nation that had entered upon a program of racial and religious persecution. Declaring that three powers had decided upon a partition of much of the world he urged that the United States should "voice its opposition to the course of Hitler and all other such detestable cruelties" Other speakers included Cassius Jackson Keyser, Professor Emeritus at Columbia Univer. ty. who paid tribute to Scripts iMathem.tica, a publication of Yeshiva College devoted to h'* *M. Rabb. B I* Leventhal, dean of the Orthodox Rabbinate of America, and Dr. Bernard Revel, president of the College. New York City, (WNS)-Openin.r of the second annual nationwide anti-Nazi week was under way yesterday with a meeting held here under the auspices of th. Joint Boycott Council in cooperation with other organizations. All youth organizations of every faith and opinion were urged to join the boycott movement. Speakers urged intensive picketing of all dealer, in German merchandise and the adoption of a resolution calling on .11 Americans concerned with the preservations of democracy in this country to intensify the boycott. Severance of diplomatic relations with Germany was petitioned by Oswald Garrison Villard, contributing editor of the Nation who declared himself in favor of the boycott against Germany. El in ore Herrick. National Labor Relations Board director in New York City also endorsed the boycott. Paris, (WNS)—Two Jewish members of the eFrench Cabinet were conspicuously absent from a dinner given by Foreign Minister Georges Bonnet to Joachim von Ribbcntrop, the German Fore'gn Minister, who came here for the signing of the Franco-German declaration of friendship. Georges Mandel, Minister of Colonies, and Jean Zay, Minister of Education, were not invited. Marshall Petain, last survivor of the hero generals of the World War, and other Cabinet members, mcluding Caesar Campinchi, the Navy Minister, who had been invited, refused to attend. Leon Blum's newspaper "Populaire took violent exception to the fact that the two Jewish ministers had not been asked to attend and declared editorially that "it is a disgrace" and "Is Hitler already dictating the law in France?" Catholic Press Condemns Coughlin New York, (WNS)—The Press Service of the Catholic Worker issued a statement denouncing Father Coughlin's radio broadcast ; n which he admonished the Jews on Communism. Referring to the broadcast as "inept and unhimely" the statement continued by saying, "inept and untimely was its pugnacious defense by Patrick ScanIon, editor of the Brooklyn Tablet." "It is to be hoped," read the statement, "the Jews of America will not consider both cases in the light of anti-Semitism, but rather as two cases of extraordinary bad manners." Declaring that "The Catholic Worker, in an act of justice to Israel, wishes to refute that w'ldly and widely circulated statement," that the leaders of Israel have not spoken out in defense of oppresNATIONAL BODY NAMES OFFICERS New York City, (WNS)—The organization of the council against intolerance in America, an outgrowth of the Provisional Council Against Anti-Semitism, was announced here by Senator-elect W. Warren Barbour; George Gordon Battle, and William Allen White. The first group was organized in response to persecution of Jews in Germany while the second group would combat every type of racial and religious prejudice in the United States. Many well-known leaders are members of each group. Among these are Governor Herbert H. Lehman, Josephsus Daniels, Ambassador to Mexico; Senator Carter Class of Virginia; John L. Lewis, president of the Congress of Industrial Relations; Harold L. Ickes, Secretary of the Interior; Colonel Frank Knox; Professor John Dewey; William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor; Grover A. Whalen; Alfred E. Smith and General Hugh SJohnson. Announcement was made by Dr. Everett R. Clinchy, director of the National Council of Jews and Christians of the formation of a national advisory committee of laymen, educators and technical experts "to work for better human relations." Transjordania Is Sought as Refuge London, (WNS) — Commander Oliver Locker-Lampson, conservative member of Parliament, in an address at Manchester, councelled the British government to think less of sending rerfugeees from Germany to remote colonial possessions but to concentrate them in Palestine. He declared that opening of the Transjordan, which was capable of absorbing 100.000 families, would create a "buffer state" of Jews there and implied that such a state would save the Suez Canal "for civilization" in the event the "Nordic monster" should attempt to seize it. Commenting editorially on behalf of the refugees, the Times declared that "It is certain that any approach to the German Government would be strengthened if the response to the present appeal showed that opinion outside Germany was deepely moved. "It is distressing to think that such a need has arisen in the 20th century, but it will at least do something to redeem the reputation of civMization if the need is amply met." sed Catholics, and the Catholic organ cites a number of documents and resolutions by rabbis and other groups in defense of persecuted non-Jews.

W. 36th St.I ART CLASSES ARE AVAILABLE Because of the large percentage of Jewish children who have entered so enthusiastically into the spirit of the Free Art Classes at Flamingo Park, each Saturday at 10:00 o'clock, it was deemed advisable to let many of their parents know, through this medium, what is being offered. These classes are under the supervision of J. B. Lemon, the Recreational Bureau's Director, and are sponsored by the Federal Art Project WPA. The instructors are Emigdio Reyes and Worth Gruelle, both equally popular with the children in "outdoor sketching" and "cartoon comics." Both instructors are from the Miami Federal Galleries. Every Saturday these children form a healthy, happy group, studying a type of self-expression under Miami Beach's semi-tropical skies. While snow storms rage in the North, these fortunate children are absorbing health giving sunshine with their studies, in a background of whispering palms and glorious tropical flowers, in. stead of within the four confining walls of a classroom. The children are advised to bring their own art materials, though prizes are now being offered of free water color setss to the child who shows the most progress in his, or her, creative powers. Advanced students meet Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:30 p. m., at Flamingo Park, and Mondays and Fridays at 1001 Coral Way, at 2:00 p. m., with Instructors Emigdio Reyes and Richard I..

At the moment, well-informed M urcM whisper that the Nasis are perfecting plans for another "outrig*,'* this time to be pinned on the Catholics and to supply what Hitler will call justification for a billion-dollar fine to be levied *ainst the Catholic Church in Germany. • Five years ago 89 percent of the school children of Munich attended Catholic parochial schools. Today every on of them is forced to attend Nasieonducted schools. The Nazi racial laws are coming in handy for Mrs. Ralmund von Hofmannstfaal, the former Muriel Astor. The non-Aryanism of her husband, a subject of Hitler and the son of the great Austrian Jewish poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal, will make it tasy for her to obtain the divorce she wants from him, as she is suing him in an Austrian court. Imagine the embarrassment of the Voelkischer Beobachter when it discovered the serial it was advertising concerned a war fought on German soil. Publication plans were quickly changed altho the novelist is a 100 percent Aryan and a Nati army officer, for it is aga'nst the Nazi philosophy even to Imagine an enemy setting foot on the land of the Holy Terror. REPERCUSSIONS Emanuel Lasker, former chess champion of the world, who now lives in New York, has written a book that will create a sensatiot in Jewish circles. He has worked out a plan to remove all the Jews of Centra!

Never before in the history of the "Y" and I know whereof I speak, has there been so much enthusiasm displayed by our membership and the public in general, for a social event. Never before has a committee worked so incessantly as has our present dance committeeFor the past three months the members of the committee have worked arduously with only one thought in mind—and that is to make our Seventh Annual Dance the biggest social event in the cityThat this has been accomplished, let me give you a little confidential preview of the affair: First and foremost—the musictwo orchestras will vie with one SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS FETED Sunday night.

May their efforts on behalf of our people be crowned with success and glory. another in a battle of music that will be the talk of the town for many a moon to come. Bill Ferrara, who won the "battle of music," in a recent competetive contest, and Maurice Weiss the "runner-up" in said contest, will furnish the music for the occasion. Think of it, there will be no lull. As soon as one band completes a number, the other one will commence another. And to add to your pleasure and enjoyment, each of these orchestras has talented artists who will give you marvelous entertainment.

NUMBER 50. WE MUST BE CAREFUL • That the Jew should resent Nazi activities and everything that is uttered against him or his fellow Jews these days is but natural. That he should decline to patronize those who are against him is but human. Yet we must be exceedingly careful before we proceed. We are moved to say this because within the past several weeka a number of charges have been made against individuals, and an attempt made to hurt them commercially because of supposed Nazi or anti-Jewish activities. Some have been found to be justified and a Urge number without foundation. May we, in all sincerity, suggest that there are agencies in Miami [.today who will be happy to cooperate with all who want to I fight un American activities and those harboring Nazi sympathies or ideals. If yon believe certain individuals or firms are anti-Jewish communicate with these agencies and a thorough investi^ati6n'will soon establish the truth or falsity of the charges. And just another word of caution: when you are approach. [ ed to aid a cause for the relief of Refugees or to raise funds lor anti-Nazi work, please investigate thoroughly before you contribute. Too often some of these appeals may be thoroughly mjustified and merely a form of racketeering. The horrible plight of our fellow Jews in Germany and other benighted | eonntries, the feeling of resentment against Nazis and their like %  tut not be made the means of self-enrichment.

WciUtions to all newly elected "icers. Your writer makes the observation that it was a somewhat shocked group of brothers—especially those who expected a political drama to be enacted by three characters — when immediately prior to the rise of the curtain Brother Shochet withdrew from the cast, thereby amending the play into a dialogue between Brothers "Ike" Levin and "Milt" Friedman. We believe this was a fitting climax to a tense situation having deep significance.

Already $2,500,000 have been of "" Jew'h business enterprises,

decrees, however, have not been
revoked and it is admitted that
similar decrees are about to be
issued Although Jews must hence
forth live only among themselves,
there is no intention them to ghettos according to DNB.
The agency commented favorab-
ly on plans to permit emigration
of nearly 90 percent of German
Jews during the next few years.
"Removal of the Jews from Ger-
many through emigration is the
ultimate goal of the decrees which
have been enacted or which are
expected," DNB asserted. "This

Jewish immigration Into Palestine the German Jews themselves."

Cultural Meeting
Will Be Held
Laborite leader, Lord Snell de-
[winced the government's record
[the Holy Und aa an "affront to
[r histor) and an unmerited hu-
Mon Kofore the world." He
rased the belief that Palestine
llffered the best prospect for solu-
|t*n of the refugee problem.
Meanwhile, the British Zionist
llWeration said that Jews may re-
Ihse to sit in the London round
table conference on the Arab-Jew-
ish situation to be held here next
laonth and criticized the govera-
jiient for failing to approve imme-
J*te entry of 10,000 child refu-
Mks from Germany.
The Greater Miami Zionist Dis.
trict will hold a Cultural meeting
Monday evening, December 26th at
8:15 o'clock at Beth David Talmud
Torah. The principal speaker of
the evening will be Mr. A. W.
Barrett, internationally known cor-
respondent and writer for the New
York Times, whose subject will be
"Am I My Brother's Keeper?"
All are asked to attend as a mes-
sage of importance will be deliv- this affair,
ered.
E. Albert Pallot, past president
of the organization and the chair-
man of the arrangements commit-
tee in a plea to the general public
said: "I believe it is unnecessary
for me to tell the Jews of Greater
M'ami and our non-Jewish friends
what the officers and members of
the Y. have been trying to accom-
plish. The Seventh Annual Dance
which will be held this coming
Sunday night will provide the
funds necessary for the mainten-
ance of the building and the erec-
tion of necessary equipment with-
out which the organization cannot
progress- The Jewish youth of
this area must have a common
meeting ground where under the
proper, wholesome Jewish influ-
ence they may enjoy the cultural
and recreational facilities that
must be given them if they are to
do much for the Jewish people of
the future.. We believe that an
evening of entertainment, second
to none, and exceeding in value by
far the cost of the admission will
be provided for our guests. It is
our sincere hope that this dance
will wjtnass a turn-cut of the cit-
izenry of the 'entire community to
enjoy the evening of gala enter-
tainment which will be provided,
and at the same time to aid in a
worth-while project"
The officers and directors of the
Gi cater Miami Federation of Jew-
ish Welfare Funds of which the Y.
is a participating organization
member, will be guests of honor at
"The League believes," said Dr.
Stelzle, "that Nazism is now the
most imminent peril that con-
fronts the United States, and all
other countries of the world as
well, and in conformity with its
original purpose 'to break down
racial, social, religious and econo-
mic prejudice and hatred,' it will
engage in this campaign with the
full strength of its entire mem-
bership"

violent exception to the fact that
the two Jewish ministers had not

Catholic Press
Condemns Coughlin
New York, (WNS)The Press
Service of the Catholic Worker
issued a statement denouncing
Father Coughlin's radio broadcast
;n which he admonished the Jews
on Communism. Referring to the
broadcast as "inept and unhimely"
the statement continued by saying,
"inept and untimely was its pug-
nacious defense by Patrick Scan-
Ion, editor of the Brooklyn Tablet."
"It is to be hoped," read the
statement, "the Jews of America
will not consider both cases in the
light of anti-Semitism, but rather
as two cases of extraordinary bad
manners."
Declaring that "The Catholic
Worker, in an act of justice to Is-
rael, wishes to refute that w'ldly
and widely circulated statement,"
that the leaders of Israel have not
spoken out in defense of oppres-

New York City, (WNS)The
organization of the council against
intolerance in America, an out-
growth of the Provisional Council
Against Anti-Semitism, was an-
nounced here by Senator-elect W.
Warren Barbour; George Gordon
Battle, and William Allen White.
The first group was organized in
response to persecution of Jews in
Germany while the second group
would combat every type of racial
and religious prejudice in the
United States.
Many well-known leaders are
members of each group. Among
these are Governor Herbert H.
Lehman, Josephsus Daniels, Am-
bassador to Mexico; Senator Car-
ter Class of Virginia; John L.
Lewis, president of the Congress
of Industrial Relations; Harold L.

ident of the American Federation

Announcement was made by Dr.
Everett R. Clinchy, director of the
National Council of Jews and
Christians of the formation of a
national advisory committee of
laymen, educators and technical
experts "to work for better human
relations."
Transjordania Is
Sought as Refuge
London, (WNS) Commander
Oliver Locker-Lampson, conserva-
tive member of Parliament, in an
address at Manchester, councelled
the British government to think
less of sending rerfugeees from
Germany to remote colonial pos-
sessions but to concentrate them
in Palestine. He declared that op-
ening of the Transjordan, which
was capable of absorbing 100.000
families, would create a "buffer
state" of Jews there and implied
that such a state would save the
Suez Canal "for civilization" in
the event the "Nordic monster"
should attempt to seize it.
Commenting editorially on be-
half of the refugees, the Times
declared that "It is certain that
any approach to the German Gov-
ernment would be strengthened if
the response to the present appeal
showed that opinion outside Ger-
many was deepely moved. "It is
distressing to think that such a
need has arisen in the 20th cen-
tury, but it will at least do some-
thing to redeem the reputation of
civMization if the need is amply
met."

organ cites a number of documents

FRDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1938
VOLUME 11. NUMBER 50.
WE MUST BE CAREFUL

That the Jew should resent Nazi activities and everything
that is uttered against him or his fellow Jews these days is but
natural. That he should decline to patronize those who are
against him is but human. Yet we must be exceedingly careful
before we proceed.
We are moved to say this because within the past several
weeka a number of charges have been made against individuals,
and an attempt made to hurt them commercially because of
supposed Nazi or anti-Jewish activities. Some have been found
to be justified and a Urge number without foundation. May
we, in all sincerity, suggest that there are agencies in Miami
[.today who will be happy to cooperate with all who want to
I fight un American activities and those harboring Nazi sympa-
thies or ideals. If yon believe certain individuals or firms are
anti-Jewish communicate with these agencies and a thorough
investi^ati6n'will soon establish the truth or falsity of the
charges.
And just another word of caution: when you are approach.
[ ed to aid a cause for the relief of Refugees or to raise funds
lor anti-Nazi work, please investigate thoroughly before you
contribute. Too often some of these appeals may be thoroughly
mjustified and merely a form of racketeering. The horrible
plight of our fellow Jews in Germany and other benighted
| eonntries, the feeling of resentment against Nazis and their like
tut not be made the means of self-enrichment.

characters when immediately
prior to the rise of the curtain
Brother Shochet withdrew from
the cast, thereby amending the
play into a dialogue between
Brothers "Ike" Levin and "Milt"

fitting climax to a tense situation
having deep significance.

Well, here we are approaching
that great event to which all of
us have been looking forward to.
I mean, you guessed it, our Sev-
enth Annual Dance Sunday night,

Never before in the history of
the "Y" and I know whereof I
speak, has there been so much en-
thusiasm displayed by our mem-
bership and the public in general,
for a social event. Never before
has a committee worked so inces-
santly as has our present dance
committee- For the past three
months the members of the com-
mittee have worked arduously with
only one thought in mindand
that is to make our Seventh An-
nual Dance the biggest social event
in the city- That this has been
accomplished, let me give you a
little confidential preview of the
affair:

will be the talk of the town for
many a moon to come. Bill Fer-
rara, who won the "battle of mu-
sic," in a recent competetive con-
test, and Maurice Weiss the "run-
ner-up" in said contest, will fur-
nish the music for the occasion.
Think of it, there will be no lull.
As soon as one band completes a
number, the other one will com-
mence another.
And to add to your pleasure and
enjoyment, each of these orches-
tras has talented artists who will
give you marvelous entertainment.
And speaking of entertainment,
folks, we shall have stars of the
entertainment world to make life
pleasant for you that evening.
And that ain't all folks. This
is only the beginning as Showboat
Captain Henry would say"only
the beginning." As you enter,
your name will be announced over
a public address system. Moving
pictures will be taken of all those
who come in and same will be
shown at the "Y" at a later date.
In short, nothing has been left
undone by our committee to make
your evening the most pleasant
you have ever had-
And now that we have given you
a little "inside dope" let us tell
you the reason why you should
come to our dance- Because the
proceeds of this affair will go to
the building fund that will help
defray the cost of a new building
a Community Center. The Y. M.

building organization in the Great-

In the official armament ma-

ship. She did it to protect her
liberty and the Baron's millions.
. Boris Thomashevsky( Yiddish
Romeo of another era, is in a hos-
pital, very ill. Erika Mann,
gifted daughter of Thomas, has
written an expose of Nazi educa-
tional methods in a volume called
"School for Barbarians" ... We
can't understand why the rumor
was spread that non-Aryan George
L Weissbaum, who bought the
New York Sixth Avenue El wreck-
ing contract, was an agent for
Hitler. And of all the senseless
and unfounded rumors we've heard
in recent weeks the worst is that
concerning the Van Raalte hosiery
people, whose lisle hose has been
accused of Nazi origin- We're
happy to inform you that the Van
Raalte lisle stockings are complete-
ly American in material, manu-
facture and any other respect you
might think of. Wayne Mor-
ris, Warner Brothers' typically
Nordic screen star, is going to
marry the daughter of the Jewish

LATE FRIDAY EVENING
SERVICES
The services this coming Friday
evening at 8:15 o'clock will be
dedicated to and conducted by the
members of the A. Z. A. (Junior
B'nai B'rith.) Irving Ginsburg,
the first Junior Cantor of Beth
David Congregation, will chant the
entire "Maariv Service. Cantor
Louis Hayman will lead the choir
in the traditional melodies. Oscar
Rappaport will represent the A.
Z. A., in addressing the worship-
pers- Rabbi Max Shapiro will
speak on the subject: "Youth
Faces Reality."
It is hopea mat the senior lead-
ers of this group will not be con-
spicuous by their absence. It is
most deplorable that the cohorts
of respective organisations lack
the proper intelligence to attend
at least the services conducted by
the officials of their organizations
whenever held annually at the syn-
agogue- This has been true in the
past of Hadassah, Y. M. H. A.. Ju-
nior Council and Y. W. H- A- It
is astounding to see such an over-
whelming attendance of worship-
pers at these services and the ab-
solute lack of organizational mem-
bers. We trust that the future
will tell a different story.
JUNIOR CONGREGATION
Regular services will be con-
ducted by the Junior Congregation
this com'ng Saturday at 10:30 a.
m. Howard Schwartz, Harold
Shapiro and Stanley Hayman will
conduct the services. Parents are
urged to bring their children. It
is as equally important to attend
Sabbath .services as it is to attend
Sunday School classes. We, there-
fore, cannot stress it sufficiently-
SUNDAY SCHOOL
A Chanukah program will be
presented during the assembly on
next Sunday morning at 11:00
o'clock. A play coached by Misses
Ethel Plant'and Adele Sootin will
be shown. The Sisterhood will
present each child with a bag of
Chanukah candies and a "Dreidel."
The Beth David Shofar has be-
come the official weekly organ of
the Sunday School edited by Har-
old Shapiro and Howard Schwartz.
The pup'ls anxiously await its
appearance every Sunday morn-
ing It is replete with Sunday
School secular and Junior organi-
zational news. A special column
is devoted to our Talmud Torah
and Bar Mitzvah studies under
the tutorship of Louis Gadon.
REFl'AH SHLAEMA
We pray unto the Almighty that
he send an absolute perfect cure
to our trustworthy member and
friends, Dan Cromer and Sidney
Palmer. May our friend, Mrs. Es.
ther Sher receive an immediate
"Refuah Shlaema."
We trust that Stanley Jamison
will speedily recover from his re-
cent accident and be able to re-
sume his studies immediately.
SABBATH SERVICES
During the Sabbath services
Saturday morning at 9:00 o'clock,
Rabbi Shapiro will preach in Yid-
dish on the subject: "Shochtim,
Butchares and Kashrui."
This Saturday we "bench Rosh
Chodesh Teves" and urge our wor-
shippers to be present- The "Min-
yan" is growing larger and larger
which indicates that there are
more "Shomrai Shabbos" in our
midst. Rabbi Shapiro will bring
out in his sermon the ever-pre-
valent problem of "Kashrus" in
Greater Miami and its wide reach-
ing influence.

ART CLASSES
ARE AVAILABLE
Because of the large percentage
of Jewish children who have en-
tered so enthusiastically into the
spirit of the Free Art Classes at
Flamingo Park, each Saturday at
10:00 o'clock, it was deemed advis-
able to let many of their parents
know, through this medium, what
is being offered.
These classes are under the su-
pervision of J. B. Lemon, the Re-
creational Bureau's Director, and
are sponsored by the Federal Art
Project WPA. The instructors are
Emigdio Reyes and Worth Gruelle,
both equally popular with the chil-
dren in "outdoor sketching" and
"cartoon comics." Both instructors
are from the-Miami Federal Gal-
leries.
Every Saturday these children
form a healthy, happy group,
studying a type of self-expression
under Miami Beach's semi-tropi-
cal skies. While snow storms rage
in the North, these fortunate chil-
dren are absorbing health giving
sunshine with their studies, in a
background of whispering palms
and glorious tropical flowers, in.
stead of within the four confining
walls of a classroom.
The children are advised to bring
their own art materials, though
prizes are now being offered of
free water color setss to the child
who shows the most progress in
his, or her, creative powers.
Advanced students meet Tues-
days and Thursdays at 3:30 p. m.,
at Flamingo Park, and Mondays
and Fridays at 1001 Coral Way,
at 2:00 p. m., with Instructors
Emigdio Reyes and Richard I..
Merrick of the Miami Federal
Galleries.

NAZI STUFF t
Rumors on the vom Rath shoot-
inr plot are getting hotter and
jjiter. The latest is that the
French secret police have actual
proof that the whole thing wu a
pot-up job to furnish a pretext for
further persecution of the Jews...
At the moment, well-informed
MurcM whisper that the Nasis are
perfecting plans for another "out-
rig*,'* this time to be pinned on
the Catholics and to supply what
Hitler will call justification for a
billion-dollar fine to be levied
*ainst the Catholic Church in
Germany. Five years ago 89
percent of the school children of
Munich attended Catholic paro-
chial schools. Today every on
of them is forced to attend Nasi-
eonducted schools. The Nazi
racial laws are coming in handy
for Mrs. Ralmund von Hofmann-
stfaal, the former Muriel Astor. .
The non-Aryanism of her husband,
a subject of Hitler and the son of
the great Austrian Jewish poet
Hugo von Hofmannsthal, will make
it tasy for her to obtain the di-
vorce she wants from him, as she
is suing him in an Austrian court-
. Imagine the embarrassment
of the Voelkischer Beobachter
when it discovered the serial it was
advertising concerned a war fought
on German soil. Publication
plans were quickly changed altho
the novelist is a 100 percent Ar-
yan and a Nati army officer, for
it is aga'nst the Nazi philosophy
even to Imagine an enemy setting
foot on the land of the Holy Ter-
ror. .
REPERCUSSIONS
Emanuel Lasker, former chess
champion of the world, who now
lives in New York, has written a
book that will create a sensatiot
in Jewish circles. He has work-
ed out a plan to remove all the
Jews of Centra! Europe, Poland
and Roumania to temporary train-
ing camps in Yugoslavia, and to
establish an international employ-
ment bureau which will distribute
them among various countries as
openings present themselves am
without interfering with the eco-
nomic balance of those lands. .
While TWA disclaims disowning
Lindbergh although its letterheads
no longer carry the phrase "The
Lindbergh Line," the aviator's
friends are protesting that his in-
terest in Naziland is purely scien-
tific and aeronautical and signifies
no Nazi leanings- .All of which
hasn't prevented New York audi-
encess from booing his picture in
recent newsreels- New Mexi-
co's Ind'ans are getting sick and
tired of this Nazi stuff, which is
causing so many local firms, which
for years have been using the an-
cient Indian good luck symbol, to
drop the swastika because of its
political implications. Doff your

featurewe have engaged a staff
of artists from the Fleischer Stu-
dios to prepare a cartoon of the
"Y" and its doingsthis alone is
worth the price of admission.
And in conclusion, let me say
that when you realize that we are
giving you a five dollar show for
one dollar, and the noble purposes
for which the proceeds will be
spent, don't you think that you
ought to co-operate with us by
coming to the dance and bring
your friends. I am sure your an-
swer will be yes. Well, so long,
see you Sunday night at the Sev-
enth Annual Dance.
