Miami Jewry is expected to
turn out enmaase Saturday mid-
night for the Fifth Annual "Caval-
cade of Stars," annual theatrical
i-xtravaganza staged this year at
the Plaza Theatre, Miami Beach.
The "Cavalcade," presented each
year by Nick Kenny, noted New
York columnist and song writer,
for the benefit of the Young Men's
Hebrew Association here, will
?tart at midnight and continue
into the morning. More than 50
acts of top flight vaudeville will
be presented. In past years the
show has broken all records for
excellence, and according to Kenny
is to be finer than ever this year.
Opening the show at midnight
will be Bob Nolan and his orches-
tra, to "be followed by Mannie
Gates and his band, who will pro-
vide accompaniment for the bal-
ance of the presentation.
Rnbinoff and his violin, Ted

mer, Baron and Blair, Virginia
Matteson, Valdyne Hague, Rita
DeLand, Dol and Billy, Karen
Stephany and Harry Stevens, are
among the many world famous en-
tertainers scheduled to appear dur-
ing the performance. Kenny will
officiate as master of ceremonies.
Purpose of the "Cavalcade" is
to raise funds for the continuance
of the Y. M. H. A. work in the
Miami area, according to Milton
Friedman, president of the asso-
.iation. "Tickets for the event are
farce at this time," he said "but
a few may be obtained at the box
ffice of the Plaza Theatre before
;he performance, Y. M. H. A. head-
quarters, or at the many booths
erected throughout the city for
disposal of reservations."
Despite greater overseas needs
and increased government respon-
sibility for public welfare, Ameri.
can Jews must continue to sup-
port their local welfare, cultural
and character-building agencies,
Jacob Blaustein, president of the
Associated Jewish Charities of
Baltimore, declared at the closing
session of the Sixth Annual Gen-
eral Assembly of the Council of
Jewish Federation and Welfare
Funds which met in Baltimore this
week. Attending the convention
from Miami were Stanley C. My-
ers, president and Baron de Hirsch
Meyer, chairman of the Greater
Miami Federation of Jewish Wel-
The importance of maintaining
welfare standards at home while
radically revising standards of
giving for relief and reconstruc-
tion in Europe and Palestine and
refugee requirements in this coun-

of the three-day session of the
Council, attended by more than
500 delegates from federations,

councils in the United States and

Asserting that the new philoso-
I phy which the government has de-
veloped with respect to the needs

pointed out that public welfare

'Night of Stars
The first "Night of Stars" tick-
et committee luncheon was held at
the home of R. R. Adler, president
<>f the Jewish Welfare Bureau last
Tuesday afternoon. The commit-
tee decided on Monday evening,
February 20th as the date for the
Fifth Annual "Night of Stars"
benefit for the Jewish Welfare Bu-
reau to be held at the Olympia
Theatre in Miami. Mrs. Bertha B.
I-evy, chairman of the ticket com-
mittee, outlined the plans for this
year's ticket drive and appointed
as her co-chairmen, Mrs. Maurice
Jacobs and Mrs. Estelle Shramm,
who will help co-ordinate the ef-
forts of the entire group. Mr. Ad.
ler pointed out the growing need
for funds to operate the Bureau,
stressing the fact that the organ-
ization has been existing on bor-
rowed funds since last November

New YorkProtestants, Catho-
lics and Jews should make certain
that no hate movement gains
headway in this country which
would react against a minority,
declared Dr. Everett R. Clinchy,
director of the National Confer,
ence of Christians and Jews, at a
testimonial dinner here in honor
of Dr. Israel Goldstein's comple-
tion of twenty years as Rabbi of
Congregation B'nai Jeshurun.
Declaring that the dictatorships
are "putting more new life into
religion than any event in a hun-
dred years," Dr. Clinchy asserted
that "never before in the United
States has religion been so ear-
nestly discussed as the essential
in people's lives, as today."

cluded Professor Louis Finkelstein,
Provost of the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America; Municipal
Court Judge Morris Rothenberg,
Basle, (WNS)While nothing
transpired in the course of the
meeting here of the Bank for In-
ternational Settlements to indicate
that any definite agreement had
been reached between Dr. Hjalmar
Schaeht, president of the Reichs-
bank, and Montagu Norman, gov-
ernor of the Bank of England,
concerning financial arrangements
for Jewish emigrants from the
Reich, the heads of European cen-
tral banks agreed that the world
bank would be available and could
handle the enterprise in the event
such an understanding could be
George Rublee, chairman of the
Intergovernmental Committee on
Refugees, accompanied by Robert
T. Pell and Joseph Cotton, expres-
sed the hope that a compromise
plan might be accepted. In Basle
the conversations dealt with the
technical problem of whether the
world bank should eventually be
invited to take charge of any plan.
It is said that the World Bank
is especially qualified for such a
task. Unofficial opinion was ex-
pressed that the problem would
not have been discussed so thor-
oughly unless there was a pros-
pect that some plan would soon be
approved and it is understood that
the only important obstacle still
at issue concerns the amount of
property in the Reich that Jews
could transfer out of Germany.

Banquet Wednesday evening,
February 1st at the Alcazar

"It was with the greatest
pleasure and satisfaction that
we watched our campaign bar-
ometer slowly rising," said
Baron de Hirsch Meyer, Cam-
paign Chairman of the Creator
Maimi Federation of Jewish
Welfare Funds in an interview
with him. "This day is a red
letter day in the annals of the
Federation," said Mr- Meyer.
"When our budget was com-
piled, and a figure of $65,150.
as the minimum amount which
would suffice to take care of
the needs of the 23 participat-
ing agencies, there were many
in this community who expres-
sed themselves as doubtful
that Mami Jewry could raise
such an amount. It is to the
credit of this community that
our campaign has justified our
faith in our ability to come to
the rescue of those who need
us in this time of previously;
Stanley C. Myers, president
of the Federation was equally
jubilant when interviewed at
at the close of the Campaign.
Said Mr. Myers: "The Jews of
Creator Miami felt all along
that a Federation of Jewish
Welfare Funds was the answer
to our problem. The result of
this campaign showed conclu-
sively that we were right- Your
campaign chairman and I ex-
tend our sincere thanks and
appreciation to everyone who
helped put this drive across.
Wo hope that all of the men
and women who worked in this
campaign will join with us in
our Victory Celebration."

Once again the Jewish community has been shocked. Again
the grim Angel of Death inflicted a wound which will not be
easily healed. Again the roll of those who worked for the good
of tfae entire community, whose unselfishness was marked, and
whose life was dedicated to the task of making this commu-

create an intelligent understanding between Jew and non-Jew
has been depleted. i
Devoted husband and father, self-sacrificing, staunch and
true leader in Israel, though but young of age, ever bearing
aloft the torch of true traditional Torah, at the peak of
career which held much for the future of Judaism, has been

the possession of a vast treasure of spiritual heritage which he

personal consequences with the will to carry out the courage of

state a placo where Jewry can stand erect without fear of
proudly proclaiming themselves true members of Israel and
where Jew and non-Jew may work hand in hand for the bene-
fit of humanity.

The famous Rabbi Isaac Elchan-

at New York, with Dr. Bernard
Revel as its dean and president,
was founded by a group cf enthu-
siastic traditional Jews some years
ago, and has developed as the
most powerful factor for the pre-
servation of Orthodox Jewry not
filone in this country, but even in
the world at large. With the es-
tablishment of the Yeshiva Col-
lege several years ago it has com-
bined the study of Jewish law and
culture with the general study of
science in distinctly Jewish sur-
roundings. On its faculty are
some of the most outstanding
Jewish as well as non-Jewish
scientists, many of whom have
served without pay for long per-
iods of time to help in the success
of these Jewish ideals.
Dr. Bernard Revel is recogniz-
ed today as one of the most out-
standing Jewish scholars, has di-
rected its activities not only for
the purpose of training Rabbis,
but for the education of Jewish
laymen in higher Jewish learning
and general scientific training.

The week ending January 21,
1939, saw the largest volume Of
air-mail dispatched in the history
of the Miami post office, 10,575
pounds of air-mail being dispatch-
ed that weekan average of 1,-
510.7 pounds per day.
With 12 mail planes departing
from Miami daily and carrying
air-mail to all parts of the United
States, Canada, Mexico, Cuba and
the countries of Latin America,
Miamians enjoy favorable sched-
ules and frequent departures which
rfford and excellent opportunity
for the use of the airmail service
provided by the Post Office De-
The air-mail rate of postage is
only six cents for each ounce
which is only three cents more
than ordinary mail; Postmaster
Hill recommends the regular use
of air-mail for all out-of-state let-
ters, and points out that air-mail
may be deposited in any street
letter box as frequent collections
of mail are made from street let-
ter boxes and mail planes depart
at frequent intervals.
Germany can't afford luxuries
such as democracy (recently clas-
sed in this category by Governor
Karl Kaufman of Hamburg) or
butter or meat, but Berlin mar-
kets are full of Italian strawber-
ries and other fruits nowwhich
is Mussolini's way of helping
Adolf kid the German people. .
So acute has the shortage of good,
solid food grown in Germany that
the New York Nazi sheet is car.
rying ads asking all sympathizers
to send food packages to their
relatives in the Fatheadland. .
Among other things the German
public isn't told is that many of
the pilots who fly the Nazi air
armada are so poorly trained that
accidents are most frequent. .
But for once we find ourself in
agreement with the Nazi press ...
Since Lindbergh's report to Amer-
ica on the Nazi air strength some
papers in Hitlerland are demand-
ing that he return me medal with
which the Fuerher decorated him
some months ago. Our heart
goes out to those courageous Ger-
man cabaret artists whose digs
at the high Nazi officials have
aroused the ire of the barbaro-
crats. One of these jokes,
concerning Gory Goering, we must
relay to you. ... It seems that
while a crowd was watching the
launching of a battleship Goering,
who was aboard, stuck his head
out through a porthole. Where-
upon everybody shouted: "Look
they just decorated Goering with
a battleship." .
A flaw thatstiflj' cause an even,
tual crack-up of the Rome-Berlin
axis is developing because the
Nazis now want to take over all
the Austrian shipping which for
many years has been under Ital-
ian control. "Certified lunatic"
is what historian H. G. Wells now
calls Hitler. Diplomatic circles
are buzzing at the rumor that the
Duke of Windsor may find his
life's work as the director of a
huge new international agency to
succor political, racial and relig-
ious refugees. Prague is see-
ing the birth of a new club of
Czech Aryans afflictfd with Hit-

Jewish noses) They have unit-

expected racial laws, and are plan-

TEMPLE ISRAEL RESOLUTION
WHEREAS, our Heavenly Fath-
er has burdened our community
with a heavy loss through the
passing of J. Louis Shochet, and
WHEREAS, our community is
to be deprived of the fruit of his
WHEREAS, we had recognized
in him a man of buoyant enthu-
siasm, firm in attitude, strong in
conviction, clear in opinion and
rich in ac-omplishment.
BE IT RESOLVED, that our
feelings be recorded, and our deep-
felt sympathy be extended to the
wife and children of the departed
J. Louis Shochet, through the
medium which he created in our
community, i. e., The Jewish
TEMPLE ISRAEL of Miami
ISAAC LEVIN, President.
We mourn the loss of our dear
departed friend and advisor, J
Louis Shochet. At a time like this
! mere words are insufficient to ex
press our grief.
We can revere the memory of
| Lou;-. Shochet, by "following thru"
' his ideas and ideals; by dedicating
ourselves to the principles for
which he fought and died: bv con-
tinuing the noble tasks which he
tirelessly and fearlessly strove so
I that the Greater Miami Jewish
r*>mm"nity in iv be a fit nlace for
us and our children. Life is so
I 'WTtain. Every day is a sur-
prise. The one thing of which we
avp sure, is the unexpected.
Each of us stands uopn the
prow of today, an eager sailor,
peeling into the un harted sea of
'omorrow. What shall happen to
is when we go thru that door?
What for us will be the great ad-
venture? For Louis Shochet. his
life was a "Great Adventure." To
accomplish so much in so short a
span of life is indeed a real ad-
venture. His was a soul that was
fine, always above his pleasure,
above his pains. Surely the soul
of Louis Shochet has gained much
so that while we may look at his
death as a great calamity, yet in
view of his splendid accomplish-
ments, let us view it as the Beau-
! tiful Adventure.
May His Soul Rest in Peace.

AN ABSOLUTE DUTY
We fully realize that you are
extremely occupied with your
business affairs throughout the
week and find it impossible to at-
tend all our services; but surely
you can find sufficient time to
bring your family and attend, at
least, our late Friday Evening
Services. <* %
Remember: You are our mem-
ber and you are conspicious by
your absence from our Synagogue
which is emphasized by the over-
whelming attendance of our non-
members and tourists. We say it
not facetiously, but earnestly
play pinochle or bridge, attend a
cinema or football, some other
night, but not Friday night. If
you have 'Sichliyos' or intelligence
you will realize that you owe it
to our great past and for our
great hope in the future to show
allegiance to our faith by attend-
ing and returning at least once
a week to our Synagogue.
Remember: Even though the
father is financially active in the
Congregation and the mother in
the Sisterhood which to all ap-
pearances is highly commendable
yet we feel that there is a cer-
tain superficiality when we ob-
serve the religious chaos and ab-
sence from all our services.
Remember: By your absence
from the Synagogue you show the
tendency to substitute material
values entirely. We dare not de-
mote the religion of Israel from
its high exalted place that it has
always occupied in the life of the
Jew. Please ponder well over
these facts: Take them in the
right spirit and ATTEND:
LET US SEE YOU

The government, he said, has
undertaken a number of social ser-
vice activities "only slightly, if at
all," especially in the fields of
public health and character-build-

ing Jewish life" through educa-

always be "the absolute responsi-
bility of the Jewish group." he
Mr. Blaustein declared, "The
private f gencies must be on hand
at all times to carry on certain
exclusive activities, among them
that work for our own group which
cannot fall within the direct re-
sponsibility of Government; to
continue, as in the past, to pioneer
in social welfare developments;
and to take up the slack by sup-
plementing as best they can in-
sufficiencies in existing Govern-
ment welfare programs."
Mr. Blaustein told the delegates
that many people have asked
whether they should not increase
their giving of foreign causes at
the expense of their local feder-

creases in our overseas giving,"
he said, "but we must not do so
