While ii may be true that Gory Goering's air fleet isn't quite as hot as he thinks it is, due to the use of ersatz here and there in the manufacture of planes, he's no doubt figuring that his air armada will last long enough to make Franre sign on the dotted line. Whereupon the planes France probably will have bought from American manufacturers will be turned over to Naziland by way of appeasement. • It's verbote n in Hitlerlland to listen to the short-wave [broadcasts sent there by Uncle I Sam or to the special German-language broadcasts of a secret British labor station, but volumes of fan mail prove that many thousands of Germans do listen in.

The program of the Conference this year, Mr. Goodman stated, will focus primarily o n the organization of community resources to meete the augumented responsibilities confronting American Jewry at the present time. Special sessions will be devoted to community planning, campaign techniques, budgeting, immigration problems and aid to refugees. "The task facing Jewish communities in 1939," said Mr. Good man, "encompasses not only the unprecedented sums of money for greatly increased needs, but also the development of intelligent at. titudes towards current Jewish problems and the building of communal programs which will reflect a continuing process of growth ami education." The Southern Regional Conference, which includes the states of North Carolina, South Caroling, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Tennessee, is one of six organized regions of the Council.

Brotherhood Week To Be Observed PROPAGANDIST TO VISIT U. S. Princess Stephanie Hohenlohe a recognized and confessed propagandist for the Nazi government announced in London that she cor' templates a trip to the United States for the purpose of cement ing cultural relations between the Nazis and Americans and "to win Americans to a more sympathetic view of Nazi Germany." She sail ed from England on the Normandie, January 28th. In order to expose the true rfature of the Princess' visit, the Non-Sectarian Anti Nazi League is making every effort to see that she is required to enter this coun try in her true capacity—that of propagandist. Accordingly the League dispatched telegrams to the Commis' sioner of Immigration, the Department of State, the Dies Com mittee, all in Washington and the local heads of Military and Naval Intelligence calling attention to her affiliations and demanding that she be required to register upon entry to this port as a propagandist for a foreign government as required by a recent act of Congress. ZIONISTS FORM SHEKEL BOARD February 19-26 has been set aside for the annual observance of Brotherhood Week; it was an nounced by Dr. Everett R. Clinchy Director of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, under whose auspices the observance will be held in over 2,000 commu nities throughout the country. Dr. Clinchy said the theme of this year's observance will be: "Democracy and Freedom," pointing out that Brotherhood Week occurs within the period which President Roosevelt has designated for commemoration o fthe 150th anniversary of the signing and the ratification of the Constitution. A message sent by the organization to Protestant. Catholic and Jewish leaders throughout the country urges that Brotherhood Week be devoted to "a new study of the Bill of Rights and its implications for a free America." Ir; suggesting an emphasis upo n the principles of democracy in this year's observance the message says: "Thoughtful citizens of all faiths are determined that America shall be kept free from the suicidal animosities that are disfiguring the common life in other parts of the world today and that those principles of justice, amity and understanding which the fathers of the republic advocated shall be maintained as the true American tradition." jects of the Basle Program, the various Zionist groups of this country have united to form a Central Shekel Board which has taken upon itself the task of securing one million shekel payers in the United States.

Epstein, national president of Hadassah, and other speakers during the first Eastern Conference of the Business and Professional Women's Divisions of the organization at the Park Central Hotel. Pointing out that Hadassah, as the largest Zionist organization in the world "must assume its full •hare of responsibilities," Mrs. Epstein told the 500 women delegates that Palestine was a bulwark for Jewish survival where the best Jewish talent being scrapped in Germany, Italy and other Central European countries could be salvaged. Mrs. Epstein remarked that successful colonization work in Palestine had aided Arab and Jew alike and that "these achievements are the only answers needed to these allegedly friendly nations seeking a haven for Jewish refugees." She pointed out that the Youth Aliyah (immigration) movement of which Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America is the sole United States agency, had demonstrated the efficiency of resettlement and reeducation of children in Palestine for the past five years. Mrs. Epstein reported that 3300 child refugees had been transferred from Central Europe i n that period, and that Great Britain had granted an additional 1376 certificates since December. Mrs. Emanuel Halpern of New York, national membership chairman of Hadassah reported that the organization now had a record breaking membership of 81.000 Jewish women in its senior and junior units, comprising a gain of 15,000 members within the last year. There are now nearly 700 ihapters, divisions and groups of Hadassah organized in every state in the United States, and a total of nearly a hundred business and professional womens group.* Mrs. Benjamin Gottesman of New Rochelle, co-chairman of the Divisions attributed their unprecedented increase to the "growing awareness of Jewish women that the persecutions of Jews three thousand miles away, and conditions among Jews in this country are inextricably inter-related-" >( Other resolutions accepted by the delegates pledged a continuation of Youth Aliyah work in this country and expressed the hope that Great Britain would enlarge its general immigration quotas. An intensification of collections for the Jewish National Fund among Hadassah members to assure immediate expansion of land-buying activities in Palestine was also voted.

FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 10,1939 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN PAGE THREE wJewisli floridi&n PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY P. O. Box 2973 PLANT AND OFFICES 21 S. W. Second Avenue [ J. LOUIS SHOCHET. Editor" FRED K. SHOCHET, Circulation Manager Entered as second class matter July 4, 1930, at the Post Office at Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 OFFICES IN PRINCIPAL FLORIDA CITIES SUBSCRIPTION One year $2.00 Six Months $1.00 FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1939 VOLUME 12.—NUMBER 6 HITLER'S REICHSTAG SPEECH One of the greatest bluffs perpetrated on a world, anxiously waiting for some hint of peace, was demonstrated in the Reichstag speech of Adolf Hitler. The speech was a masterpiece of deception, chicanery and bunk against the democracies. The so-called conciliatory tone was an obvious decoy which was accepted as a manifestation of the desire for peace on the part of Hitler. In his long-winded harangue against the demicracic.-, Hitler was full of platitudes and word-juggling. But where he referred to the Jews, he ran true to form in his evil outpourings. Should the world be forced into another! World War. the German Feuhrer said, the Jews would be completely exterminated frow the earth. This is the sort of man to whom \ the German people must bend in servitude. This was the great j message anxiously awaited by a fearful world. But the world was able to breathe easier two hours later because whatever pronouncements had been made against the democracies were made in a conciliatory vein. For the Jews, however, there is no likelihood of a breathing spell. The work of caring for the (victims of Nazi persecution must continue apace. The democracies were made the object of sharp criticism but in such dispassionate tones. He referred to but made no direct demands for colonies from Prime Ministers Chamberlain and Daladier. He merely mentioned Germany's right to African colonies from which we are able to gather that he is not yet in a position to back up his demands by force. The world had speculated a great deal about Hitler's alliance with Mussolini and what stand he would take in the Italian dictator's de-' mands for colonies from France. Although he was exhaustive in his praise for Mussolini and Italy, he gave no hint as to the extent of Germany's ability to back up Italy's demands. Hitler has his eye on the Ukraine, and until he gets the '' granary of Europe," it is certain that he will continue in his; present campaign of propaganda and villification against the Jews. That is the blind behind which he operates. For the moment all his problems have been pigeon holed. But the campaign against the Jews continues. THE Y. M. H. A.

Lipton, first vicepresident of the Florida Savings, Building and Loa n League and president of Dade Federal Savings and Loan Association of Miami announced today that savings and loan associations in Florida enjoyed their best year during 1938. The fifty-one associations i n the state have more than $40,000,000 in total assets and are located in practically every major communi. ty. During 1938 the Florida associations made loans to more than 3,400 home owners in Florida, totalling approximately $11,200,000. Approximately $6,000,000 of this amount was expended for new construction having an estimated value of $15,000,000. During 1938 the amount of new savings invested in the Florida associations doubled the amount received from the time of the chartering of the first association in late 1933 through December of 1937. Mr. Lipton pointed out that while many of the associations are named "Federal" Savings and Loan Associations, their management and their officers and directors are drawn from their local vicinity. Contrary to some belief, they are not a New Deal agency but are desigied as permanent home financing and thrift institutions to serve their respective communities. Based on a study for the last sever JI years, Mr. Lipton predicted that 1939 would see a very substantial amount of new residential construction in Florida.

In view of the conferences held at London last week, for purposes of discussion relative to the Palestinian situation, Rabbi Shapiro will discuss the subject: "The ArabBritish-Jewish Axix." SABBATH SERVICES Services for adults Saturday morning begins at 8:30. Services for the Junior Congregation begins at 10:30. We are delighted to note the increased attendances at all our services, particularly the Junior Congregation with close to 100 children attending. When a child is willing to forego the beach or a marionette show it is indicative of a true Jewish spirit created within the portals of our institution. Our "Return to the Synagogue" movement is gaining momentum beginning with the child of our institution. BAR MITZVAH Aaron, the so n of Mrs. Jean Rosenthal will become "Bar Mitzvah" during the services this Saturday morning at 9:00 o'clock. A Kiddush will be given after the services.

RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES A beautiful program was presented during the assembly by Jack Mendell under the direction of Miss Adele Sgall stressing the importance ef Chamesho Osor B' Shvat celebration. The Beth David Shofar was given to every child in our auditorium to take home, so that the parent will become acquainted with the varied religious activities of our institution. The Shofar is splendidly edited by Harold Shapiro and Howard Schwartz. OUR GALA AFFAIR We participate a tremendous attendance at our Sisterhood's annual Pre-Purim Ball this coming Tuesday evening at the Mahi Shrine Temple Remember: This is the only outstanding affair sponsored by the Sisterhood annually. Bring your family and frieni's. We shall look for you Tuesday evening! Realize that the proceeds are used for our educational pur. poses. NICHUM AVAILIM We were shocked to hear of the death of that great mother soul, Mrs. Esther Sher. May our Father comfort the husband, children and the family. May her soul be indeed bound up in the bond of eternal life! Strictcly Confidential GALGENHUMOR From Leonard Lyons we recall the story of the conversation between Hitler and Chamberlain after the Munich pact. It seems that Hitler wanted a momento of the occasion, and suggested that Chamberlain give him his famed umbrella. %  Whereupon Chamberlain expressed his regret that this was one favor he couldn't grant. "You see," he explained, "the umbrella is mine" And while we're at it we might tell you the tale Walter Winchell relays concerning the little German boy who gleefully reported to his teacher that ten kittens, all Nazis, had been bor n at his house. A week later, when the principal visited the class, the teacher called on little Hans to repeat his report. "We have a cat at our house," he dutifully intoned, "who gave birth to te n kittens, and they are all Democrats!" When the teacher recovered from the shock she reproached Haenschen: "But you told me they were all Nazis" "That was a week ago." the youngster pointed out .. "Now their eyes are open." ABOUT PEOPLE Pierre van Passen's new book, "Days of Our Years," which we told you months ago would prove a best seller, has already reached the 100,000 mark The author has received warning letters from Italian and German Fascists threatening him with retribution for exposing their beloved fuehrers. The Broadway premiere of Stefan Zweig's "Jeremiah" took place last week, under the auspices of the Theatre Guild—but the first performance of the English version in America was given two years ago in Cincinnati, but students of the Hebrew Union College Latest advices from Hollywood are that Warner Brothers will vary the usual formula by prefacing their Nazi spy picture with the notice that "This picture deliberately refers to certain individuals who are alive today" • %  Walter Wagner may be a wiz in the movie game, but in the air corps during the war he wrecked so many planes while trying to lear n to fly that the authorities finally switched him to other duties. Mrs. Ismar Elbogen, whose scholarly husband, formerly of Berlin, now teaches at Stephen S. Wise's Institute of Religion, is a sister of conductor Otto Klemperer. We hope that the Dusenberg car used by film star Sally Eilers—to whom the Cleveland Jewish community lays claim—was bought from a refugee. Incidentally, Sally's four-year-old-so n Harry Joe Brown Jr., is making his screen debut in her new film, a spy drama We hear that Luise Rainer's current stay in the hospital is not due to the severity of her illness, but is a preliminary step toward a final separation from Clifford Odets Lulla David .who plays Sylva Sidney's mother i n the Broadway production "The Gentle People," really is Sylvia's niece. • SPECIAL COMMENT Note to readers who sent in pictures of their offspring i n connection with the planned Gus Ed wards film: We have forwarded all such photos to Henry Salisbury of the New York Paramount office, and request all other readers who may be interested to send such pictures directly to him. Note to readers who object to our divulging the original names of well known personalities who have changed their monikors: No stigma attaches to this custom, which is so widespread that one of ihe major film studios is even now running a renaming contest for two of its new acquisitions. So if we take time out to mention that Elaine Barrie was born with the name of Jacobs while we neg lect to point out that her hubby's full name is John Drew Barry more Blythe don' take it too hard, but just consider that as a Jewish columnist we presume our reader? are more interested in the rea names of Jews-inthe-news.

cently are now being dumped on

ii may be true that Gory Goering's
air fleet isn't quite as hot as he
thinks it is, due to the use of er-
satz here and there in the manu-
facture of planes, he's no doubt
figuring that his air armada will
last long enough to make Franre
sign on the dotted line. Where-
upon the planes France probably
will have bought from American
manufacturers will be turned over
to Naziland by way of appease-
ment. It's verboten in Hitler-
lland to listen to the short-wave
[broadcasts sent there by Uncle
I Sam or to the special German-lan-
guage broadcasts of a secret Brit-
ish labor station, but volumes of

ands of Germans do listen in. .

munities in 1939," said Mr. Good
man, "encompasses not only the
unprecedented sums of money for
greatly increased needs, but also
the development of intelligent at.
titudes towards current Jewish
problems and the building of com-
munal programs which will reflect
a continuing process of growth
ami education."

agandist for the Nazi government

templates a trip to the United
States for the purpose of cement
ing cultural relations between the
Nazis and Americans and "to win
Americans to a more sympathetic
view of Nazi Germany." She sail
ed from England on the Norman-
die, January 28th.
In order to expose the true rfa-
ture of the Princess' visit, the
Non-Sectarian Anti Nazi League
is making every effort to see that
she is required to enter this coun
try in her true capacitythat of
propagandist.
Accordingly the League dis-
patched telegrams to the Commis'
sioner of Immigration, the De-
partment of State, the Dies Com
mittee, all in Washington and the
local heads of Military and Naval
Intelligence calling attention to
her affiliations and demanding
that she be required to register
upon entry to this port as a prop-
agandist for a foreign govern-
ment as required by a recent act
of Congress.
ZIONISTS FORM
SHEKEL BOARD
February 19-26 has been set
aside for the annual observance of
Brotherhood Week; it was an
nounced by Dr. Everett R. Clinchy
Director of the National Confer-
ence of Christians and Jews, un-
der whose auspices the observance
will be held in over 2,000 commu
nities throughout the country.
Dr. Clinchy said the theme of
this year's observance will be:
"Democracy and Freedom," point-
ing out that Brotherhood Week oc-
curs within the period which Pres-
ident Roosevelt has designated for
commemoration o fthe 150th anni-
versary of the signing and the
ratification of the Constitution.
A message sent by the organi-
zation to Protestant. Catholic and
Jewish leaders throughout the
country urges that Brotherhood
Week be devoted to "a new study
of the Bill of Rights and its impli-
cations for a free America." Ir;
suggesting an emphasis upon the
principles of democracy in this
year's observance the message
says:
"Thoughtful citizens of all faiths
are determined that America shall
be kept free from the suicidal
animosities that are disfiguring
the common life in other parts of
the world today and that those
principles of justice, amity and
understanding which the fathers of
the republic advocated shall be
maintained as the true American
tradition."
jects of the Basle Program, the
various Zionist groups of this
country have united to form a
Central Shekel Board which has
taken upon itself the task of se-
curing one million shekel payers in
the United States.

Epstein Addresses
Hadassah Group
New YorkThe belief that Jew-
ish women in this country must
accelerate their efforts to defend
American institutions and assure
the consolidation of gains in Pal-
estine as the best answer to calu-
mnies spread by fascist propagan-
da was voiced here Sunday by
Mrs. Moses P. Epstein, national
president of Hadassah, and other
speakers during the first Eastern
Conference of the Business and
Professional Women's Divisions of
the organization at the Park Cen-
tral Hotel.
Pointing out that Hadassah, as
the largest Zionist organization in
the world "must assume its full
hare of responsibilities," Mrs. Ep-
stein told the 500 women delegates
that Palestine was a bulwark for
Jewish survival where the best
Jewish talent being scrapped in
Germany, Italy and other Central
European countries could be sal-
vaged.
Mrs. Epstein remarked that suc-
cessful colonization work in Pales-
tine had aided Arab and Jew alike
and that "these achievements are
the only answers needed to these
allegedly friendly nations seeking
a haven for Jewish refugees." She
pointed out that the Youth Aliyah
(immigration) movement of which
Hadassah, the Women's Zionist
Organization of America is the
sole United States agency, had
demonstrated the efficiency of re-
settlement and reeducation of chil-
dren in Palestine for the past five
years. Mrs. Epstein reported that
3300 child refugees had been
transferred from Central Europe
in that period, and that Great
Britain had granted an additional
1376 certificates since December.
Mrs. Emanuel Halpern of New
York, national membership chair-
man of Hadassah reported that
the organization now had a record
breaking membership of 81.000
Jewish women in its senior and
junior units, comprising a gain of
15,000 members within the last
year. There are now nearly 700
ihapters, divisions and groups of
Hadassah organized in every state
in the United States, and a total
of nearly a hundred business and
professional womens group.* Mrs.
Benjamin Gottesman of New Ro-
chelle, co-chairman of the Divis-
ions attributed their unprecedent-
ed increase to the "growing aware-
ness of Jewish women that the
persecutions of Jews three thous-
and miles away, and conditions
among Jews in this country are in-
extricably inter-related-" >(
Other resolutions accepted by
the delegates pledged a continua-
tion of Youth Aliyah work in this
country and expressed the hope
that Great Britain would enlarge
its general immigration quotas. An
intensification of collections for
the Jewish National Fund among
Hadassah members to assure im-
mediate expansion of land-buying
activities in Palestine was also
voted.

VOLUME 12.NUMBER 6
HITLER'S REICHSTAG SPEECH
One of the greatest bluffs perpetrated on a world, anxious-
ly waiting for some hint of peace, was demonstrated in the
Reichstag speech of Adolf Hitler. The speech was a master-
piece of deception, chicanery and bunk against the democracies.
The so-called conciliatory tone was an obvious decoy which was
accepted as a manifestation of the desire for peace on the part
of Hitler. In his long-winded harangue against the demicra-
cic.-, Hitler was full of platitudes and word-juggling. But
where he referred to the Jews, he ran true to form in his evil
outpourings. Should the world be forced into another! World
War. the German Feuhrer said, the Jews would be completely
exterminated frow the earth. This is the sort of man to whom
\ the German people must bend in servitude. This was the great
j message anxiously awaited by a fearful world. But the world
was able to breathe easier two hours later because whatever
pronouncements had been made against the democracies were
made in a conciliatory vein. For the Jews, however, there is no
likelihood of a breathing spell. The work of caring for the
(victims of Nazi persecution must continue apace.
The democracies were made the object of sharp criticism
but in such dispassionate tones. He referred to but made no
direct demands for colonies from Prime Ministers Chamberlain
and Daladier. He merely mentioned Germany's right to Afri-
can colonies from which we are able to gather that he is not
yet in a position to back up his demands by force. The world
had speculated a great deal about Hitler's alliance with Musso-
lini and what stand he would take in the Italian dictator's de-'
mands for colonies from France. Although he was exhaustive
in his praise for Mussolini and Italy, he gave no hint as to the
extent of Germany's ability to back up Italy's demands.
Hitler has his eye on the Ukraine, and until he gets the
'' granary of Europe," it is certain that he will continue in his;
present campaign of propaganda and villification against the
Jews. That is the blind behind which he operates. For the
moment all his problems have been pigeon holed. But the cam-
paign against the Jews continues.

Cincinnati's poor of every race and

the local B'nai B'rith organization
appointed a committee to solicit

cago and organizer and chairman
of the Chicago Vaad HaYeshivoth,
will speak at the Beth Jacob Syn-
agogue, Miami Beach.
In the year 1916. a conference
was held in Rabbi Epstein's Suc-
cah where plans were formulated
fox a rabbinical seminary to serve
the Middle West of the United
States, from which sprang forth
the present Hebrew Theological
College which is now one of the
world's largest institutions for
higher Jewish learning. It is in
behalf of this Seminary, known as
the Beth Medrosh Latora that
Rabbi Epstein is making a special
visit this year to Miami Beach
where he will meet with friends
of the College to devise ways and
means of helping to relieve the
financial difficulties of this In-
stitution.
Recently the College provided
affidavits for more than eighty
German refugee students, enabling
them to come to this Institution
where they will be completely de-
pendent upon the College for sup-
port. The world renowned schol-
ar, author and outstanding au-
thority on Bible and Talmud, Rab-
bi Dr. Chaim Heller, recently join
ed the twenty-three members of.
the Faculty of the Hebrew Theo-
logical College.

percent of the budgetry require-
ments of the Institution :{nd 20
percent comes from out of town.
For a number of years outstanding
leaders from Chicago and vicinity.
who come to Florida during the
winter months, have helped the
College financially. This year the
board of directors and officers of
the Institution have prevailed up-
on Rabbi Epstein and the officers
of his Congregation Anshe Knes-
seth Israel to relieve him of his.

Loan Associations
Report Increase
Joseph M. Lipton, first vice-
president of the Florida Savings,
Building and Loan League and
president of Dade Federal Savings
and Loan Association of Miami
announced today that savings and
loan associations in Florida enjoy-
ed their best year during 1938.
The fifty-one associations in the
state have more than $40,000,000
in total assets and are located in
practically every major communi.
ty. During 1938 the Florida asso-
ciations made loans to more than
3,400 home owners in Florida, to-
talling approximately $11,200,000.
Approximately $6,000,000 of this
amount was expended for new con-
struction having an estimated val-
ue of $15,000,000.
During 1938 the amount of new
savings invested in the Florida
associations doubled the amount
received from the time of the
chartering of the first association
in late 1933 through December of
1937.
Mr. Lipton pointed out that
while many of the associations
are named "Federal" Savings and
Loan Associations, their manage-
ment and their officers and direc-
tors are drawn from their local
vicinity. Contrary to some belief,
they are not a New Deal agency
but are desigied as permanent
home financing and thrift institu-
tions to serve their respective
communities.
Based on a study for the last
severjI years, Mr. Lipton predict-
ed that 1939 would see a very sub-
stantial amount of new residential
construction in Florida.

SABBATH SERVICES
Services for adults Saturday
morning begins at 8:30. Services
for the Junior Congregation be-
gins at 10:30. We are delighted
to note the increased attendances
at all our services, particularly the
Junior Congregation with close to
100 children attending. When a
child is willing to forego the beach
or a marionette show it is indica-
tive of a true Jewish spirit created
within the portals of our institu-
tion. Our "Return to the Syna-
gogue" movement is gaining mo-
mentum beginning with the child
of our institution.
BAR MITZVAH
Aaron, the son of Mrs. Jean
Rosenthal will become "Bar Mitz-
vah" during the services this Sat-
urday morning at 9:00 o'clock. A
Kiddush will be given after the
services. May Aaron grow up "Li
Chupah Uli Maasim Tovim."
RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES
A beautiful program was pre-
sented during the assembly by
Jack Mendell under the direction
of Miss Adele Sgall stressing the
importance ef Chamesho Osor B'
Shvat celebration. The Beth Dav-
id Shofar was given to every child
in our auditorium to take home, so
that the parent will become ac-
quainted with the varied religious
activities of our institution. The
Shofar is splendidly edited by
Harold Shapiro and Howard
Schwartz.
OUR GALA AFFAIR
We participate a tremendous at-
tendance at our Sisterhood's an-
nual Pre-Purim Ball this coming
Tuesday evening at the Mahi
Shrine Temple Remember: This
is the only outstanding affair
sponsored by the Sisterhood annu-
ally.
Bring your family and frieni's.
We shall look for you Tuesday
evening! Realize that the proceeds
are used for our educational pur.
poses.
NICHUM AVAILIM
We were shocked to hear of the
death of that great mother soul,
Mrs. Esther Sher. May our Fath-
er comfort the husband, children
and the family. May her soul be
indeed bound up in the bond of
eternal life!
Strictcly Confidential
GALGENHUMOR
From Leonard Lyons we recall
the story of the conversation be-
tween Hitler and Chamberlain af-
ter the Munich pact. It seems
that Hitler wanted a momento of
the occasion, and suggested that
Chamberlain give him his famed
umbrella. Whereupon Cham-
berlain expressed his regret that
this was one favor he couldn't
grant. "You see," he explained,
"the umbrella is mine" And
while we're at it we might tell
you the tale Walter Winchell re-
lays concerning the little German
boy who gleefully reported to his
teacher that ten kittens, all Nazis,
had been born at his house. A
week later, when the principal
visited the class, the teacher cal-
led on little Hans to repeat his
report. "We have a cat at our
house," he dutifully intoned, "who
gave birth to ten kittens, and they
are all Democrats!" When the
teacher recovered from the shock
she reproached Haenschen: "But
you told me they were all Nazis"
. "That was a week ago." the
youngster pointed out .. "Now
their eyes are open." .
ABOUT PEOPLE
Pierre van Passen's new book,
"Days of Our Years," which we
told you months ago would prove
a best seller, has already reached
the 100,000 mark The author
has received warning letters from
Italian and German Fascists
threatening him with retribution
for exposing their beloved fueh-
rers. The Broadway premiere
of Stefan Zweig's "Jeremiah" took
place last week, under the auspices
of the Theatre Guildbut the first
performance of the English ver-
sion in America was given two
years ago in Cincinnati, but stu-
dents of the Hebrew Union College
Latest advices from Hollywood
are that Warner Brothers will
vary the usual formula by prefac-
ing their Nazi spy picture with the
notice that "This picture deliber-
ately refers to certain individuals
who are alive today" Walter
Wagner may be a wiz in the movie
game, but in the air corps during
the war he wrecked so many
planes while trying to learn to fly
that the authorities finally switch-
ed him to other duties. Mrs.
Ismar Elbogen, whose scholarly
husband, formerly of Berlin, now
teaches at Stephen S. Wise's In-
stitute of Religion, is a sister of
conductor Otto Klemperer. We
hope that the Dusenberg car used
by film star Sally Eilersto whom
the Cleveland Jewish community
lays claimwas bought from a
refugee. Incidentally, Sally's
four-year-old-son Harry Joe Brown
Jr., is making his screen debut in
her new film, a spy drama.....
We hear that Luise Rainer's cur-
rent stay in the hospital is not due
to the severity of her illness, but
is a preliminary step toward a fi-
nal separation from Clifford Odets
. Lulla David .who plays Sylva
Sidney's mother in the Broadway
production "The Gentle People,"
really is Sylvia's niece. .
SPECIAL COMMENT
Note to readers who sent in
pictures of their offspring in con-
nection with the planned Gus Ed
wards film: We have forwarded all
such photos to Henry Salisbury of
the New York Paramount office,
and request all other readers who
may be interested to send such pic-
tures directly to him. Note to
readers who object to our divulg-
ing the original names of well
known personalities who have
changed their monikors: No stig-
ma attaches to this custom, which
is so widespread that one of ihe
major film studios is even now
running a renaming contest for
two of its new acquisitions. So
if we take time out to mention
that Elaine Barrie was born with
the name of Jacobs while we neg
lect to point out that her hubby's
full name is John Drew Barry
more Blythe don' take it too hard,
but just consider that as a Jewish
columnist we presume our reader?
are more interested in the rea
names of Jews-inthe-news.
