"Y" To Present Annual
"Cavalcade of Stars
>>
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
! Ponahue, the entire Gay Nineties
show, Hank Greenberg, the Radio
Aces, Frnee Fay, Leon Prima,
Lillian Carmen, Owen and Barco,
Bob Hall, Milton Douglas, Ramon
and Renita, HiMegarde, Libby
Hohnan. Crow and Dunn, Shelia
Barrett, Terry Lawlor, Leon Kra-
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."
National Federations
Holds Convention
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-
fare Funds.
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-
try was one of the central themes
of the three-day session of the
Council, attended by more than
500 delegates from federations,
welfare funds and community
councils in the United States and
Canada.
Methods of raising the sums to
be required by the newly formed
United Jewish Appeal for Refu-
gees and Overseas Needs, prob-
lems of local community relation-
ships and ways of developing fresh
sources of community leadership
among youth, women's groups and
other elements heretofore not rep.
i resented in communal activity
j were considered in detail by the
I delegates.
Asserting that the new philoso-
I phy which the government has de-
veloped with respect to the needs
of the underprivileged was wel-
come "in principle," Mr. Blauhtein
pointed out that public welfare
programs have many inadequacies.

'Night of Stars
Committee Meets
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
(Continue don Page Three)
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."
Other speakers at the dinner in-
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
reached.
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.
Doric Worth, New York, Com-
mander-in-Chief of the Jewish
War Veterans of the United States
accompanied by Harry Wengrow,
National Vice Commander, Atlan-

gion, and Mrs. Malvina V. Free-

Federation Celebrates
With Victory Banquet
Climaxing their initial
campaign the Greater Miami
Federation of Jewish Welfare
Funds will hold their Victory
Banquet Wednesday evening,
February 1st at the Alcazar
Hotel, when officers, workers
and friends will gather to cel-
ebrate the overwhelming suc-
cess of their first drive.
"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;
unequalled distress."
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."

VOLUME 12NUMBER 4-
SUCH IS "HIS" WILL
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-
nity and this state a better place for all Jewry to live in, and to
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
torn away from family and friends.
Por material things he desired but little. His glory was
the possession of a vast treasure of spiritual heritage which he
prized above all else. His was the task, self-assumed, to
bring the glories of Jewry to all. ... He was a true leader in
Israel. His was the pleasure of doing right regardless of
personal consequences with the will to carry out the courage of
his convictions.
What can we say? The loss is irreplacable.....the void
left in the heart of Israel ... in the hearts of his family and
his vast host of friends and in the entire community, cannot be
filled.
What can we do? Pledge ourselves to emulate the life thus
too soon closed. ... to carry on with the same courageous
spirit, the noble work so adequately championed by him. ,
to prove our devotion by REMEMBERING AND NOT
FORGETTING HIM.
We who are left behind to carry on THE JEWISH
FLORIDIAN, the publication through which he accomplished
his good for Jewry, will strive to maintain his principles,
his ideals and his platform, to fearlessly denounce atrocities
of any people persecuted, to make this community and this
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.
And as we recite the courageous justification "Dayon
Hoemes" and say such is "HIS" will let us not be content
therewith, but constructively show the appreciation and the
love we bear the departed leade*in Israel, J. Louis Shochet, of
sainted memory.
With the help of God, and the support of his friends. Jews
and non-Jews of the State of Florida, we will continue to pub-
lish THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN.

B'NAI B'RITH
BRIEFS
BY SIDNEY L. SEGALL
The untimely passing of Brother
J. Louis Shochet is a terrific
shock to the entire Jewish commu-
nity. Words are inadequate to
express the feeling of Sholem
Lodge of B'nai B'rith for the great
loss suffered by Brother Shochet's
passing. His untiring and unsel-
fish efforts as chairman of the
anti-Defamation Committee of
B'nai B'riththe Lodge's most im-
portant defense activityaccom-
plished amazing results too num-
erous to mention in this column.
In losing Br.other Shochet. B'nai
B'rith is confronted with the prob-
Ipm of filling a gapa voidcap-
ably filled by an able, conscien-
tious and intelligent leader who
waged a successful battle in de-
fense of Jewish rights. His lea-
dership as a communal worker in
behalf of all Jewish causes will
be definitely missed.
Rabbi Freed Here

of $77,500.00. Congratulations
to Brothers Stanley C. Myers and
Baron de Hirsch Meyer, who did
a great job as President and
Chairman, respectively! Congrat-
ulations to all workers for the
splendid cooperation which helped
to make the drive a success. Each
and every worker should be proud
to have shared in the responsi-
bility which attaches to American
Jewry in this present crisis of our
people.

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-
partment
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.
NUTZI NEWS
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." .
OVERSEAS CHATTF.R
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-
tite probosci (otherwise known as
Jewish noses) They have unit-
ed in self-protection against the
expected racial laws, and are plan-
ning to wear special identifying
badges.....
ASIDE TO SENATOR BORAH
When you protested against the
injection of the Jewish issue -into
the Senate Committee's heaving
on the Frankfurter appointment
by one Allen Zoll, you forgot to
mention that Mr. Zoll is on friend-
ly terms with the Nazi Bund in
this country, and also was the or-
ganier of the Father Coughlinite
picketing of radio station WMCA
by a picket line that carried anti-
Jewish placards. .
YOU SHOULD KNOW
The newest Nazi improperganda
stunt is to send German sailors,
on shore leave in America, to the
movie houses, with instructions
to applaud Hitler's appearances o"
the screen....."The American
Way," the new show coming to
Mr. Rockefeller's Center Theatre,
will include passages taken from
Nutzi Fritzi Kuhn's pet speeches.
.... Collier's Magazine will soon
be featuring some hot revelations
on Nazi concentration camps and
on conditions among refugees. ..
The author will be Quentin Rey-
nolds. ... As if the refugees
weren't having a hard enough
time of it, the Naztis here have
evolved a new way of harassing
them. They march along some
of the Hoboken steamship piers
with signs reading ^:^We employ
only refugees" and intended to
stir up anti-refugee feeling.....

OPPORTUNITIES IN MIAMI EXEMPLIFIED
... BY THE GROWTH OF
MANHATTAN DISTRIBUTORS, Inc.
On February 17. 1937, Maurice C. Cohn and Myron N. Newman
founded the Manhattan Beer Distributors, Inc., 828 N. W. 21st
Terrace, for tlie sole purpose of distributing Manhattan Beer.
Many Miamian* will recall the rough and rugged road thev had
to travel aside from the natural hardships in building a' new
business.
In August of this same year, they decided to enter the wine
business in a small way, to help carry the burdenous overhead
that entails the beer business. On October 1. 1937. thev sold
their first case of wine, which was then bottled by a' local
company for them.
\* ith ambition, enthusiasm and many hour* of hard work,
serving their customers with courtesy, a helping hand and
above all. quality product-, the business soon outgrew their
small plant, necessitating their moving to larger quarters and
installing their own bottling plant.
On January 2. 1938. they bottled their first bottle of wine and
hae grown from a production of 4.500 gallons for one month's
until their last report shows 13,600 gallons for one month's
business. Once again the business which is now known as
Manhattan Distributors. Inc.. has outgrown their building and
a new modern addition had to be built to house the growing
company. I .'f

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
labors, and
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
Floridian.
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.

LATE FRIDAY EVENING
SERVICES
The services this coming Friday
evening at 8:15 o'clock will be
dedicated to and conducted by-the
Beth David Sisterhood. Annually,
the Members W our Sisterhood
take over the complete services
acquainting the worshippers with
the scope of its activities. This
Shabos will be known as "Sister-
hood Sabbath." Cantor Louis Hay-
man assisted by the Beth David
choir will chant the liturgic mel-
odies. Those participating in the
cervices constitute the executive
of the Sisterhood board of direc-
tors. They are Mesdames Isidor
Cohen, J. Engler, Ed Friedman,
Ben Kandel, S. Kromash, Harry
Oliphant, Mendel Scheinberg, S.
G. Rose, Joe Syman, Sol Weinkle
and Louis Weinkle. The guest

Louis Hayman accompanied by
Mrs. Essie Shaeffer will chant ap-

piro will discuss the subject: "Ju-
daism as a Way of Life."
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
FRIDAY NIGHT:

Come and participate in our
services:
Come and listen to our Rabbi's

Come and listen to our Cantor
and Choir:
Come and enjoy a real 'Oneg-
Shabos.'

Holds Convention
(Continued from Page One)
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 work. The task of "maintain-
ing Jewish values and perpetuat-
ing Jewish life" through educa-
tional and cultural activities will
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-
ations.
"Of course, we should make in-
creases in our overseas giving,"
he said, "but we must not do so
at the expense of our local char-
ities."
He urged the development of
Jewish life in a statesmanlike
way.
At the opening session of the
Assembly on Saturday evening,
January 21, Jan Masaryh, former
Czechoslovakia Minister to Great !
Britain, called upon "the genius '
heroism" not raging in Ej
and Czechoslovakia was the
-fope,

"We are both suffering from
this same blizzard of cruelty. 9e|

said. "I'm sure that both cf .
will survive it. The Jew. ar,
merely one of the many that ar
on the spot. We seem to be in
for a lengthy siege of this new
form of heroism that i:: h

he asked aid for at least several
hundred thousand people to "get

Annually, the Members W our Sisterhood take over the complete services acquainting the worshippers with the scope of its activities. This Shabos will be known as "Sisterhood Sabbath." Cantor Louis Hayman assisted by the Beth David choir will chant the liturgic melodies. Those participating in the cervices constitute the executive of the Sisterhood board of directors. They are Mesdames Isidor Cohen, J. Engler, Ed Friedman, Ben Kandel, S. Kromash, Harry Oliphant, Mendel Scheinberg, S. G. Rose, Joe Syman, Sol Weinkle and Louis Weinkle. The guest speaker will be Mrs. Joe Fine, who will discuss the subject: "Let Us Understand Each Other!" The speaker will be introduced by Mrs. Harry Oliphant, president of the Sisterhood.

Cantor Louis Hayman accompanied by Mrs. Essie Shaeffer will chant appropriate numbers. Rabbi Shapiro will discuss the subject: "Judaism as a Way of Life." AN ABSOLUTE DUTY We fully realize that you are extremely occupied with your business affairs throughout the week and find it impossible to attend 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 member and you are conspicious by your absence from our Synagogue which is emphasized by the overwhelming attendance of our nonmembers 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 attending 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 appearances is highly commendable —yet we feel that there is a certain superficiality when we observe the religious chaos and absence from all our services. Remember: By your absence from the Synagogue you show the tendency to substitute material values entirely. We dare not demote 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 FRIDAY NIGHT: EVERY Come and participate in our services: Come and listen to our Rabbi's sermon: Come and listen to our Cantor and Choir: Come and enjoy a real 'OnegShabos.' National Federation *J-J g SLSffiZ* Holds Convention (Continued from Page One) The government, he said, has undertaken a number of social service activities "only slightly, if at all," especially in the fields of public health and character-building work. The task of "maintaining Jewish values and perpetuating Jewish life" through educational and cultural activities will always be "the absolute responsibility of the Jewish group." he Mr. Blaustein declared, "The private f gencies must be on hand at all times to carry o n certain exclusive activities, among them that work for our own group which cannot fall within the direct responsibility of Government; to continue, as in the past, to pioneer in social welfare developments; and to take up the slack by supplementing as best they can insufficiencies i n existing Government 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 federations. "Of course, we should make increases in our overseas giving," he said, "but we must not do so at the expense of our local charities." He urged the development of Jewish life in a statesmanlike way. At the opening session of the Assembly on Saturday evening, January 21, Jan Masaryh, former Czechoslovakia Minister to Great Britain, called upon "the genius heroism" not raging in Ej and Czechoslovakia was the -fope, '--.'ond victim. "We are both suffering f rom this same blizzard of cruelty. 9e | fishness and megalomania" u. said. "I'm sure that both cf „. will survive it. The Jew. ar merely one of the many that ar on the spot. We seem to be in for a lengthy siege of this new form of heroism that i„:: % %  h line of least resistance." J.

Asserting that "the devil was loose in a great part of Europe," he asked aid for at least several hundred thousand people to "get away from the clutches of the devil."

FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 1939 PRICE FIVE CENTS "Y" To Present Annual "Cavalcade of Stars >> Miami Jewry is expected to tur n out enmaase Saturday midnight for the Fifth Annual "Cavalcade 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 orchestra, to "be followed by Mannie Gates and his band, who will provide accompaniment for the balance of the presentation. Rnbinoff and his violin, Ted !f the Jewish Welfare Bureau last Tuesday afternoon. The committee decided on Monday evening, February 20th as the date for the Fifth Annual "Night of Stars" benefit for the Jewish Welfare Bureau to be held at the Olympia Theatre in Miami. Mrs. Bertha B. I-evy, chairman of the ticket committee, 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 efforts of the entire group. Mr. Ad. ler pointed out the growing need for funds to operate the Bureau, stressing the fact that the organization has been existing on borrowed funds since last November (Continue don Page Three) New York—Protestants, Catholics and Jews should make certain that no hate movement gains headway i n 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 completion 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 hundred years," Dr. Clinchy asserted that "never before in the United States has religion been so earnestly discussed as the essential in people's lives, as today." Other speakers at the dinner included 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 International Settlements to indicate that any definite agreement had been reached between Dr. Hjalmar Schaeht, president of the Reichsbank, and Montagu Norman, governor of the Bank of England, concerning financial arrangements for Jewish emigrants from the Reich, the heads of European central banks agreed that the world bank would be available and could handle the enterprise in the event such an understanding could be reached. George Rublee, chairman of the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees, accompanied by Robert T. Pell and Joseph Cotton, expressed 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 expressed that the problem would not have been discussed so thoroughly unless there was a prospect 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. Doric Worth, New York, Commander-in-Chief of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States accompanied by Harry Wengrow, National Vice Commander, Atlanta, in charge of the Southern Region, and Mrs. Malvina V.

Federation Celebrates With Victory Banquet Climaxing their initial campaign the Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds will hold their Victory Banquet Wednesday evening, February 1st at the Alcazar Hotel, when officers, workers and friends will gather to celebrate the overwhelming success of their first drive. "It was with the greatest pleasure and satisfaction that we watched our campaign barometer slowly rising," said Baron de Hirsch Meyer, Campaign 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 MrMeyer. "When our budget was compiled, and a figure of $65,150. as the minimum amount which would suffice to take care of the needs of the 23 participating agencies, there were many in this community who expressed 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; unequalled distress." 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.

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 community and this state a better place for all Jewry to live in, and to 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 torn away from family and friends. Por material things he desired but little. His glory was the possession of a vast treasure of spiritual heritage which he prized above all else. His was the task, self-assumed, to bring the glories of Jewry to all. ... He was a true leader in Israel. His was the pleasure of doing right regardless of personal consequences with the will to carry out the courage of his convictions. What can we say? The loss is irreplacable t he void left in the heart of Israel ... in the hearts of his family and his vast host of friends and in the entire community, cannot be filled. What can we do? Pledge ourselves to emulate the life thus too soon closed. ... to carry on with the same courageous spirit, the noble work so adequately championed by him. to prove our devotion by REMEMBERING AND NOT FORGETTING HIM. We who are left behind to carry on THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN, the publication through which he accomplished his good for Jewry, will strive to maintain his principles, his ideals and his platform, to fearlessly denounce atrocities of any people persecuted, to make this community and this 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 benefit of humanity. And as we recite the courageous justification "Dayon Hoemes" and say such is "HIS" will let us not be content therewith, but constructively show the appreciation and the love we bear the departed leade*in Israel, J. Louis Shochet, of sainted memory. With the help of God, and the support of his friends. Jews and non-Jews of the State of Florida, we will continue to publish THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN.

Louis Shochet is a terrific shock to the entire Jewish community. Words are inadequate to express the feeling of Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith for the great loss suffered by Brother Shochet's passing. His untiring and unselfish efforts as chairman of the anti-Defamation Committee of B'nai B'rith—the Lodge's most important defense activity—accomplished amazing results too numerous to mention in this column. In losing Br.other Shochet. B'nai B'rith is confronted with the probIpm of filling a gap—a void—capably filled by an able, conscientious and intelligent leader who waged a successful battle in defense of Jewish rights. His leadership as a communal worker in behalf of all Jewish causes will be definitely missed. Rabbi Freed Here On Yeshiva Tour Rabbi Mayer Freed of New York arrived last week as a representative of the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Yeshiva and Yeshiva College on his annual tour of "Federation" has completed an intensive ten day drive for overseas relief, including many worthy Jewish causes. The drive went "over the top" with a grand total of $77,500.00. Congratulations to Brothers Stanley C. Myers and Baron de Hirsch Meyer, who did a great job as President and Chairman, respectively! Congratulations to all workers for the splendid cooperation which helped to make the drive a success. Each and every worker should be proud to have shared in the responsibility which attaches to American Jewry in this present crisis of our people. Sholem Lodge's Installation Banquet was a splendid affair—a fine "success. Congratulations and best wishes to the newly installed officers for a successful administration in office. The following Brothers were installed: president, Al Pallot; vice president, I. Levin; treasurer, Be n Le Vine, financial secretary, Marx Feinberg; recording secretary, Jack Abbott; monitor, Elry Stone; assistant monitor, Leo Eisenstein; warden, Matthew S. Bandler; guardian, Dr. Harold Rand; trustee, Baron de Hirsch Meyer. The men elected are capable and qualified to serve and we are confident that the coming year will bring further accomplishments in the manifold activities of our great Brotherhood. Florida in the interests of the institution. The famous Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Yeshiva, and Yeshiva College at New York, with Dr. Bernard Revel as its dean and president, was founded by a group cf enthusiastic traditional Jews some years ago, and has developed as the most powerful factor for the preservation of Orthodox Jewry not filone in this country, but even in the world at large. With the establishment of the Yeshiva College several years ago it has combined the study of Jewish law and culture with the general study of science in distinctly Jewish surroundings. 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 periods of time to help in the success of these Jewish ideals. Dr. Bernard Revel is recognized today as one of the most outstanding Jewish scholars, has directed 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. Strictly Confidential By PHINEAS J. BIRON 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 dispatched that week—an 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 schedules and frequent departures which rfford and excellent opportunity for the use of the airmail service provided by the Post Office Department The air-mail rate of postage is only six cents for each ounce— which is only three cents more tha n ordinary mail; Postmaster Hill recommends the regular use of air-mail for all out-of-state letters, and points out that air-mail may be deposited in any street letter box as frequent collections of mail are made from street letter boxes and mail planes depart at frequent intervals. NUTZI NEWS Germany can't afford luxuries such as democracy (recently classed in this category by Governor Karl Kaufman of Hamburg) or butter or meat, but Berlin markets are full of Italian strawberries and other fruits now—which 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 America on the Nazi air strength some papers in Hitlerland are demanding that he return me medal with which the Fuerher decorated him some months ago. Our heart goes out to those courageous German cabaret artists whose digs at the high Nazi officials have aroused the ire of the barbarocrats. 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. • Whereupon everybody shouted: "Look— they just decorated Goering with a battleship." OVERSEAS CHATTF.R 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 Italian 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 religious refugees. Prague is seeing the birth of a new club of Czech Aryans afflictfd with Hittite probosci (otherwise known as Jewish noses) They have united in self-protection against the expected racial laws, and are planning to wear special identifying badges ASIDE TO SENATOR BORAH When you protested against the injection of the Jewish issue -into the Senate Committee's heaving on the Frankfurter appointment by one Allen Zoll, you forgot to mention that Mr. Zoll is on friendly terms with the Nazi Bund in this country, and also was the organier of the Father Coughlinite picketing of radio station WMCA by a picket line that carried antiJewish placards. YOU SHOULD KNOW The newest Nazi improperganda stunt is to send German sailors, on shore leave in America, to the movie houses, with instructions to applaud Hitler's appearances o" the screen The American Way," the new show coming to Mr. Rockefeller's Center Theatre, will include passages taken from Nutzi Fritzi Kuhn's pet speeches. .... Collier's Magazine will soon be featuring some hot revelations on Nazi concentration camps and on conditions among refugees. .. The author will be Quenti n Reynolds. ... As if the refugees weren't having a hard enough time of it, the Naztis here have evolved a new way of harassing them. They march along some of the Hoboken steamship piers with signs reading ^:^We employ only refugees" and intended to stir up anti-refugee feeling THIS AND THAT Herbert Bayard Swope, whose nephew John has just finished a book of photos railed ("Camera Over Hollywood," is the head of a group that is frrjing to arrange a Germany-As-It-Use3-To-Be exhibit at the .New.

TEMPLE ISRAEL RESOLUTION WHEREAS, our Heavenly Father 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 labors, and WHEREAS, we had recognized in him a man of buoyant enthusiasm, firm in attitude, strong in conviction, clear in opinion and rich in ac-omplishment. BE IT RESOLVED, that our feelings be recorded, and our deepfelt 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 Floridian. 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 continuing 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 surprise. The one thing of which we a vp 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 adventure? For Louis Shochet. his life was a "Great Adventure." To accomplish so much in so short a span of life is indeed a real adventure. 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 accomplishments, let us view it as the Beau! tiful Adventure.
