There will be no compromise on
the stand previously taken by the
Jewish delegates with regard to
the minority status that the Arabs

whose representative at the Evian
conference stated that there was
room in his country for as many
as 100,000 immigrants. The Do-
minican project is regarded as the
most promising of all since the is-
land republic contains some of the
best sugar and coffee raising land
in the world, and its climate is
healthful enough to support a Eu-
ropean population. The third of

The consensus of opinion ex-
pressed by the British Press is
that no headway whatever has
been made between the Govern-
ment and the two delegations,
and that consequently the Gov-
ernment will in the end be oblig-
ed to impose its own policy. This
the papers believe, the Govern-
ment will do even though its own
policy may meet with the con-
sent of neither the Arabs nor
the Jews.
GERMAN PROPOSAL PRESENTED BY RIBLEE TO
EVIAN CONFERENCE
The German proposal which Mr. Rublee was able to report
to the Evian Committee in London is: Of the German Jewish pop-
ulation of 600.000, the 150,000 classed as wage-earnersable
bodied men and single women between the ages of 15 and 45
would 'Be allowed to emigrate first over a period of three to five
yearte. After being established abroad they could then, send for
their families and dependentsanother 250.000. Those awaiting
emigration would be permitted meanwhile to take jobs and reopen
businesses.
Emigration would be financed by a trust fund of at least one-
fourth of the existing Jewish wealth in Germany (one-fourth, that
is. of what is left after the 1.000.000,000-mark fine imposed upoh
the Jewish community in retaliation for the slaying of Vom Rath
in Paris.) Emigrants would be permitted to take out of their
remaining possessions in the form of German-manufactured equip-
ment for settlement abroad.
(It might he recalled here that the Joint Boycott Council of
the American Jewish Congress and the Jewish Labor Committee
if opposed to the last stipulation of the Berlin-Intergovernmental
Refugee Committee accord, on the grounds that the exportation
of German goods by Jewish emigrants leaving Germany would
drive a wedire into the boycott of German goods, and that any
slackening of the boycott would permit the Nazis to improve their
economic situation.) I

less efforts the outside world for
the first time since Hitler's rise
to power, has learned just how
much cooperation can be expected
from the Nazis in handling the
refugee problem in the future-
The results of Mr- Rnblee's ne-
gotiations have met with a good
deal of outside criticism, particu-
larly in view of the German exces-
ses against the Jews last Novem-
ber, and even now the German pro.
posals may be open to serious cri-
ticism on moral, diplomatic and
qcononric grounds, but at least a
sound foundation has been laid and
with the ki owledge of Germany's
position in the matter, the field is
now clear for action by other coun-
tries-
Three commissions soon will be
sent out to investigate colonization
prospects in parts of the world
where thousands of new settlers
may establish new homes. One is
going to the Philippines where
Manuel L. Quezon, President of
the Commonwealth, has announc-
ed that his government is willing
to accept at least 1,000 settlers an-
nually and has issued a special in-
vitation to doctors, engineers and
Prime Minister Neville Chamber-
lain last November offered for
colonization.
Proposal of this territory led to
an attack on Chamberlain by indi-
viduals in the United States on
the ground that he was insincere
in suggesting for colonization land
that is "utterly worthless and un-
inhabitable."
With countries which but a few
months ago stubbornly refused to
open their doors now showing gen-
uine willingness to take in emi-
grants from Germany, the Evian
committee is greatly encouraged.
The possible territories for reset-
tlement now include not only the
Philippines, the Dominican Repub-
lic and British Guiana, but also

Reading Successor
Is Appointed
Expulsion Decree
Nearing Deadline
Rome (WNS)It was reliably
reported that foreign intervention
in behalf of 15,000 foreign Jews
slated for expulsion under govern-
ment decree by March 12 may be
expected after various legations
had studied the problem. It was
believed that strong outside influ-
ence must be brought to bear on
the Rome government which will
be asked soon to make good Pre-
mier Mussolini's promises to Unit-
ed States Ambassador Phillips and
Prime Minister Neville Chamber-
lain to extend the expulsion date
and to urge the Intergovernmental
Committee for Refugees to make
a study of the situation.
Unless '.he Evian body inter-
venes the ll.-'ian Minister of In-
terior will ordei .ass arrests of
foreign Jews on Mam 12 and only
those who can prove "bility to
emigrate within a reasonai/.? per-
iod will be given residential j.er-
mits. It is understood that a largt
number of Polish Jews will share
the fate of deportees from Ger-
many who have been detained at
the Polish-German frontier town
of Zbonsyzn since last October.
These, in Italy, will be sent to the
"no-man's land" in sealed trains.
Rumanian, Greek and Hungarian
Jews will be dumped in their home
countries, while American, French
and British Jews will probably be
treated in the same way, though
more diplomatically. German Jews
who cannot be sent back to Ger-
many, will be forced into concen-
tration camps set up by the Ital-
ian Government. Meanwhile thou-
sands of Jews from all parts of
Italy are storming foreign consul-
ates in the hope of finding some
country of refuge by March 12.
In the face of constant pleas to
the government for permission to
remain after the date set for ex-
pulsion, the government has thus
failed to give any reply, and this
fact is taken as a source of possi-
ble hope and an indication that the
government is at least considering
the proposition. Italian Jewish
leaders, meanwhile, are concerned
over the growing number of con-
versions of Jews to Catholicism,
especially in the smaller towns
where Jewish communities are
small and weak. It is reported

The Enemy of Humanity
From Thomas Mann, world renowned author, now a volun-
tary- exile from Germany, in an article entitled "Culture and
Politics" contained in the Calling America- issue of Survey
Graphic, comes this indictment of the German regime and the
elements in Germany responsible for its rise to power: '
The enemy of humanity. To this has the German spirit
CMM with its anti-democratic cultural pride- This awful name,
a name accursed, has become its name- The intellectual German
bourgeois could never have dreamed it, and thinks he is dream-
ing now that it has become the truth. But true it is; His refusal
to realize that politics are part of the human problem has jssued
in political frightfulness, enslavement to power the totalitarian
state. The fruit of his aesthetic bourgeois culture is barbarism;
a savagery of convictions, purposes and methods like to nothing
in the world before. His elegant disdain of democratic revolu-
tion has made him the tool of another revolution; an anarchic
one. running amuck to threaten the foundations and props of
all our Western morality and civilization; a world revolution
of the Huns in olden times can even be compared.''
In intensity of cruelty the institution now linked with the
I German name surpasses the bestialities of the savages who in-
habited the forests of Germany of old.
Germany, because of its adherence to a policy of brute force
and racial antagonisms, has become the foe of civilization, the
enemy of humanity and the antagonist of every influence that
ikes for human good.

States on behalf of the further-

Miami this week and will address
several gatherings.
Dr. Ginsberg is well known to
the Hebrew reading public in the
United States, both through his
many literary creations and thru
the tributes accorded him by the
Hebrew and general press upon
his current mission to America.
A nation-wide movement has
recently been inaugurated for the
furtherance of Hebrew culture in
the United States and Palestine.
This was due to the realization on
the part of Jewish leaders that the

DRAWS THRONG
Upwards of 1,600 persons at-

given at the Miami Civic Center
Wednesday night under sponsor-

The ball was to raise funds for
the Youth Aliyah movement, which

and Mrs. S. H. Lutsky, chairman
of the Women's Division.
Sholem Lodge and the entire
j Jewish community will look for-
, ward with keen interest to the ac-
complishments of the convention.
' Undoubtedly, several important
! problems will confront the coming
i convention. B'nai B'rith will be
concerned with problems of Anti-
l Defamation, boycott of aggressor
I nations, the problem of cooperat-
j ing with the Joint Council for
refugees. On these serious ques-
tions of the moment- we anticipate
that Sholem Lodge's delegates will
be heard from in the discussions
on the convention floor.
The Fifth District with which
Sholem Lodge is affiliated, will
hold its annual election of officers
at the convention, with Brother
Harry Simonhoff et als conducting
the caucus maneuvers behind the
scenes, our Lodge should come
home with nothing short of a Dis-

RELIGIOUS FORUM
The concluding session of the
weekly Friday evening Religious
Forums will be held on this com-
ing Friday night at 8:30 o'clock
Rabbi Kellner chose as his topic
"Pre Purim Sentiments." These
religious forums were conducted
for a period of twelve weeks and
provided an excellent opportunity
for the discussion of vital Jewish
subjects of current interest. As in
the past week's Congregational
singing will be part of the even-

SABBATH SERVICES
The Sabbath morning services
will be distinguished by the pres-
ence of several outstanding mem-
bers of the Rabbinate who are on
vacation at present in our midst-
Rabbi Dr. Nathan Drazen of the
Congregation Shaarei Tfiloh in
Baltimore will preach in the morn-
ing while Rabbi Simcha Levy, splr
itual leader of the Orthodox Jew-
ish community of Perth Amboy, N.

class and speak at Shalos Sudos.
BUILDING PROGRESS
At a specially called meeting of
the Board of Directors, the
Building Committee, was author-
ized to confer with the architect
for the purpose of drawing up
plans and specifications for our
proposed new synagogue and He-
brew school building- it is hoped
that the active building process
will commence immediately after
Passover thus assuring the com-
pletion of at least one building by
the High Holidays. The plans call
for a Bimah in the center and a
regular Erath Naashim thus ren-
dering our synagogue the only one
in the state of Florida built and
conducted in strict traditional
spirit.

We are thankful for the recov-
ery of Mrs. Sam Silver and Mr.

LADIES AUXILIARY
At a meeting held last Monday
the membership was pleased to
hear a most satisfying report about
the huge success of our annual
Ball. Both in artistic beauty as
well as in financial gain the affair
has by far outstripped all our
previous functions. A unique and
entertaining feature of the pro-
gram was the selection and crown-
ing of Queen Esther and we are
all happy to announce that Miss
Betty Lasky was chosen for the
honor and Miss Lillian Willens as
her lady in waiting.

cause of the daring anti-Hitler
publicity put out by him- The
latest story from Max's agent de-
scribes him as an enthusiastic ap-
plauder at Billy Rose's Refugee
Review, demonstratively enjoying
all the cracks against the Fuehrer.
. A tip to the agencies which
organized the anti-Nazi boycott,
and to the American Federation of
Labor, which is supporting that
boycott: Keep an eye on the nego-
tiations now going on for exten-
sive barter deals between Germany
and American Midwestern farmers
and packers. This is the begin-
ning of a big drive to break the
boycott in this country.
EXCHANGE
From Film Daily we cull the
story of the Italian cops who were
sent out to arrest any hissers or
booers at a showing of a German
film (the only kind permitted to
be imported into Italy today)-
It seems that, contrary to expec-
tations (the Aryanized German
films being unpopular among the
art-loving Italians,) the gendar-
merie returned without a single
prisoner. "W couldn't arrest
the entire audience," was their ex-
planation. Neal O'Hara has
suggested that the correct trans-
lation of the name of Hitler's
Schwarzer Korps is blackguards. .
How about calling the dictator-
ships one-maniacracies ? .

VOTERS SUPPORT
Ralph B. Ferguson, in the midst
nf his campaign in the present
Recall Election, is pointing with
nride to a letter he received, which
is re-printed below:
CONGRESS OF THE UNITED
STATES
House of Representatives
Washineton. D. "C.
February 14, 1939
Dr. Ralph B. Ferguson,
fity Commissioner,
Miami. Florida.
Dar Ralph:
I feel that I would be remiss if
T did not take this opportunity to
thank you and the City of Miami
for the wonderful support you
have eiven me in my recent fieht
now in progress to secure a site
in Miami for a Naval Air Base.
You as an individual have been
particularly instrumental in se-
curing for me all the facilities
which our beautiful city offers in
this connection and I am indeed
thankful, as a fellow-Miamian for
the work that you have done in
this matter despite the fact that
you are now engaged in an election
campaign.
You are to be commended for
the civic pride which you have
exhibited and in my humble opin-
ion. I do not believe that any Mi-
amian has a right to question your
civic interest.
It goes without saying that I
could not have made this fight
had it not been for the tireless ef-
forts of both the city and county
ficials and I feel it my duty to so
express myself. Whether the fight
to which I have referred and in
which I am onw actively engaged
is won or lost, I shall always feel
kindly toward you for the treat-
ment and conduct which has been
employed in connection with this
proposition which means so much
Dr. Ralph B. Ferguson, promi-
nent in local professional, civic
and fraternal organizations since
his arrival in Miami about 17
years ago, in discussing the recall
election said: "It is my desire to
present before the people of Miami
a brief explanation of my official
actions as their City Commission-
er since my induction in office, as
well as a statement of my aims
and objectives. >
Less than two years ago, I was
chosen as your Commissioner with
a vote of in the neighborhood of
12.000 out of ltj.000 votes cast Tnrs
was the highest number of votes
cast for any of the candidates for
1 the office of City Commissioner,
'''his mandate gave me the assur-
ance that I held the people's trust
and confidence. This rebuke to
my enemies fired them to unceas-
ing; activities since my election. A
short review of their efforts and
motives is worthy of considera j
tion.
The Recall movement was insti-
tuted against the three commis-
sioners who were under indict-
ment. I felt that this was inequit-
able. I should not be called upon
tu face other people's enemies any
more than they should be called
upon to face mine. The Recall
Was directed against three com-
missioners as a unit. I still think
iat if a Recall were necessary,
here should have been individual
'etitions, as peonle who were my
nemies signed the petitions to pet
ip and in so doing, it was also
ecessary to sign against Mr. Wi'.
'ims and Mr. DuBose and their
enemies who signed against them
naturally had to take me along.
"I have always trie dto work for
the best interest of this communi-
ty, have lived here 17 years, and
intend to live here the rest of my
life. I have tried to represent the
young and progressive element,
and have tried to think of the
Miami of tomorrow.
"I believe that Miami needs a
liberal policy, and I always have
and shall lend my efforts toward
achieving it.
"A Recall Election is harder to
win than a regular election be-
cause I must obtain over 50 per
cent of the votes, and I hope you
thinking people are not going to
have your intelligence insulted by
letting the papers pink out and tell
you who they want you to spon-
sor. I have fought your battles
POLITICAL BRIEFS
Norris W. Broadway, as candi-
date in the recall election for City
Commission, opposes: "Special in-
terests that seek to control City
Government through financing
offices; wasteful and unnecessary
campaigns of candidates for city
expenditure of public funds or the
employment of special city attor-
neys at exorbitant salaries;" and
states: "I am not associated with
any group or clique politically or
otherwise. I am runnning entirely
alone on the insistence of numer-
ous friends. I will not resign dur-
ing a crisis when my services are
needed most. Therefore, the ac-
tive support and influence of ev-
ery voter is solicited."
D- A- Brooks, as candidate in
the recall election for City Com-
mission, to be held next Wednes-
day, points to his fifteen years of
business experience, and in his
campaign platform pledges: "to
return to the people, and among
the things he favors and will fight
for are: "Removal of railroad
tracks to a suitable location, there-

At the services this Friday ev-
eniBffi February 24th, Dr. Simon
(iinsberg, president of the Hebrew
Writer's Association of Palestine,
and emissary of Palestinian Jewry
to the United States, will speak on
the subject: "Palestine, Its Pres-
ent Plight and Its Answer."
The services will be conducted
by Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan and Rabbi
Cohnan A- Zwitman.
Dr. Ginsberg is a Hebrew poet
of distinction, and is the recipient
of honorary degrees, among them
l>cing the Doctorate Degree from
Oiopsie College, Philadelphia. Al-
though most of his writings have
been in the Hebrew language. Dr.
Ginsberg has to his credit a note-
worthy book in English on "The
Life and Works of Ramchal (Mos-
es Chayim Luzzatto)"
-In iriew of Dr. Ginsberg's ac-

distinction, his addresses in the
Miami area will be of great im-
portance.
At the Temple services Dr. Gins-
berg will be honored by a recep-
tion tendered by the Sisterhood.
Members and friends are invited.
RELIGIOUS SCHOOL
"Even the rebuilding of the
Temple in Jerusalem is not as im-
portant as the teaching of chil-
dren."Talmud.
The Religious School Assembl}
of Sunday. February 26th. will be
dedicated to a celebration of
George Washington's birthday. A
presentation of a section of the
broadcast of "Americans AllIm-
migrants All" will feature the
morning program, which will be-
gin at 11:30 a. m. This playlet,
in costume, will deal with the im-
portant part that Chaym Salomon
played in the espousal of the
cause of liberty, in Washington's
time. Parents and friends are in
vited to the Assembly at 11:30
o'clock.
On Sunday, March 5th, at 10:30

of 27,000: Palestine, which can ab-
orh thousands of immigrants just
is soon as Great Britain decides
;i|>on her course there, and such
places as Rhodesia, Kenya and a
number of French colonies, where
small groups of settlers can be ad-
mitted. As soon as the commis-
sions have investigated and re-
ported their findings, the work of
organization and financing can be
gin. An international corporation
has already been created under
the auspices of the Evian Commit-
tee but the necessary capital can-
not be raised until a practicable
colouration scheme has been de-
cided upon. It is hoped that the
British and American Governments
will contribute at least $25.000000
pack to the international loan.
Similar private contributions are
also expected as soon as it can be
established how many refugees
can be placed into various reset-
tlement projects, and the amount
of money necessary to finance the
work.

that Jewish parents hope to secure
assurances for their children by
conversion since, as Jews, they
face an almost impossible exis-
tence in Italy, barred from schools
or holding positions in the state.
Conversion gives these children
the right to attend church schools.
Jewish communities throughout
the country are making every ef-
fort to organize and strengthen
themselves to prevent their de-
struction through conversion and
look for aid from Jewish commu-
nities in other countries in order
to maintain religious and educa-
tional activities. A study of the
effects of the anti-Jewish decrees
on the various communities is be-
ing made and a census taken of
those deprived of their means of
livelihood through the closing of
their vications to Jews. The re-
sults will be used in an attempt
to devise a retaining program and
a Jewish employment and replace-
ment system.
JEWIS OPPOSE
(Continued from Page One)
ning of the conferences that the
Jews will not surrender their
rights in Palestine. It is believed
that the four principal demands
nlaced before the Government by
Dr. Chaim Weizmann will be re-
oeatedfor continuation of the
League of Nations Mandate, for
Jewish immigration in accordance
With the principle of economic ab-
sorptivity, for an active policy of
-ievelopment in Palestine and for
effective safeguards against a mi-
nority status of Jews.
The Jewish delegates are pre-
pared to give full support to these
cardinal points in their program
9nd to uphold the vigorous declar-
ation of Menahem M. Ussishkin,
President of the Jewish National
Fund, ami the previous statement
of policy by David ben Gurion,
Chairman of the Jewish Agency
Executive.
that the Arab claim for an inde-
pendent state in Palestine is not
the only alternative to be consid-
ered. The discussion centered
mainly on the Arab demand for
an independent Arab State. Jamal
Husseini. cousin of the exiled Muf-
ti, emphasized the fact that such
an Arab State was, in his view,
compatible with Jewish minority
rights.
Mr- MacDonald's remarks were
believed to indicate that the Gov-
ernment planned to reject the de-
mand for an independent Arab
State in Palestine and intended to
remain firm in its contention, an-
I nounced previously, that Palestine
was specifically excluded from the
teijritory promised the Arabs in
I Sir Henry McMahon's disputed
letter.
Viscount Samuel authorized a
denial of the Arab claim that he
had met three times with General
Nuri Pasha es Said, Iraqi Prime
Minister, and had offered his sup-
port to the Arab demands. He hits
been in eommuni ation with neith-
er Nuri Pasha nor any other mem-
ber of the Arab delegation, he de-
clared. He also denied the Arab
report that he had submitted a
memorandum to the British Gov-
ernment urging a larger represen-
tation of Anglo-Jewry among the
Jewish conferees in London.
Dr. Chalm Weizmann, David ben
Gurion and Dr. Stephen S. Wise
visited Prime Minister Chamber-
lain at 10 Downing Street. Mr.
Chamberlain had extended an in-
vitation for the interview to the
Jewish leaders. Colonial Secre-
tary Malcolm MacDonald also was
present at the meeting which last-
ed three quarters of an hour.
The exact topic of conversation
was not divulged, but it was under-
stood that in addition to being de-
signed to counterbalance the in-
terview of the Prime Minister
with leading Arab delegates, the
conference had the added purpose
of preliminary discussion of the
British Government's program for
Palestine.
Colonial Secretary Malcolm
MacDonald indicated to the Arab
delegates at a two-hour session
that the British Government feels

As soon as the commissions have investigated and reported their findings, the work of organization and financing can be gin. An international corporation has already been created under the auspices of the Evian Committee but the necessary capital cannot be raised until a practicable colouration scheme has been decided upon. It is hoped that the British and American Governments will contribute at least $25.000000 pack to the international loan. Similar private contributions are also expected as soon as it can be established how many refugees can be placed into various resettlement projects, and the amount of money necessary to finance the work. Expulsion Decree Nearing Deadline (Continued from Page One) that Jewish parents hope to secure assurances for their children by conversion since, as Jews, they face an almost impossible existence in Italy, barred from schools or holding positions in the state. Conversion gives these children the right to attend church schools. Jewish communities throughout the country are making every effort to organize and strengthen themselves to prevent their destruction through conversion and look for aid from Jewish communities in other countries in order to maintain religious and educational activities. A study of the effects of the anti-Jewish decrees on the various communities is being made and a census taken of those deprived of their means of livelihood through the closing of their vications to Jews. The results will be used in an attempt to devise a retaining program and a Jewish employment and replacement system. JEWIS OPPOSE (Continued from Page One) ning of the conferences that the Jews will not surrender their rights in Palestine. It is believed that the four principal demands nlaced before the Government by Dr. Chaim Weizmann will be reoeated—for continuation of the League of Nations Mandate, for Jewish immigration in accordance With the principle of economic absorptivity, for an active policy of -ievelopment in Palestine and for effective safeguards against a minority status of Jews. The Jewish delegates are prepared to give full support to these cardinal points in their program 9nd to uphold the vigorous declaration of Menahem M. Ussishkin, President of the Jewish National Fund, ami the previous statement of policy by David ben Gurion, Chairman of the Jewish Agency Executive. that the Arab claim for an independent state in Palestine is not the only alternative to be considered. The discussion centered mainly on the Arab demand for an independent Arab State. Jamal Husseini. cousin of the exiled Mufti, emphasized the fact that such an Arab State was, in his view, compatible with Jewish minority rights. MrMacDonald's remarks were believed to indicate that the Government planned to reject the demand for an independent Arab State in Palestine and intended to remain firm in its contention, anI nounced previously, that Palestine was specifically excluded from the teijritory promised the Arabs in I Sir Henry McMahon's disputed letter. Viscount Samuel authorized a denial of the Arab claim that he had met three times with General Nuri Pasha es Said, Iraqi Prime Minister, and had offered his support to the Arab demands. He hits been in eommuni ation with neither Nuri Pasha nor any other member of the Arab delegation, he declared. He also denied the Arab report that he had submitted a memorandum to the British Government urging a larger representation of Anglo-Jewry among the Jewish conferees in London. Dr. Chalm Weizmann, David ben Gurion and Dr. Stephen S. Wise visited Prime Minister Chamberlain at 10 Downing Street. Mr. Chamberlain had extended an invitation for the interview to the Jewish leaders. Colonial Secretary Malcolm MacDonald also was present at the meeting which lasted three quarters of an hour. The exact topic of conversation was not divulged, but it was understood that in addition to being designed to counterbalance the interview of the Prime Minister with leading Arab delegates, the conference had the added purpose of preliminary discussion of the British Government's program for Palestine.

The third of the commissions is the AngloAmerican one sent to the muchdisputed 40,000 square mile territory in British Guiana which The consensus of opinion expressed by the British Press is that no headway whatever has been made between the Government and the two delegations, and that consequently the Government will in the end be obliged to impose its own policy. This the papers believe, the Government will do even though its own policy may meet with the consent of neither the Arabs nor the Jews. GERMAN PROPOSAL PRESENTED BY RIBLEE TO EVIAN CONFERENCE The German proposal which Mr. Rublee was able to report to the Evian Committee in London is: Of the German Jewish population of 600.000, the 150,000 classed as wage-earners—able bodied men and single women between the ages of 15 and 45— would 'Be allowed to emigrate first over a period of three to five yearte. After being established abroad they could then, send for their families and dependents—another 250.000. Those awaiting emigration would be permitted meanwhile to take jobs and reopen businesses. Emigration would be financed by a trust fund of at least onefourth of the existing Jewish wealth in Germany (one-fourth, that is. of what is left after the 1.000.000,000-mark fine imposed upoh the Jewish community in retaliation for the slaying of Vom Rath in Paris.) Emigrants would be permitted to take out of their remaining possessions in the form of German-manufactured equipment for settlement abroad. (It might he recalled here that the Joint Boycott Council of the American Jewish Congress and the Jewish Labor Committee if opposed to the last stipulation of the Berlin-Intergovernmental Refugee Committee accord, on the grounds that the exportation of German goods by Jewish emigrants leaving Germany would drive a wedire into the boycott of German goods, and that any slackening of the boycott would permit the Nazis to improve their economic situation.)

The delegation, representing the Union of Jewish Communities, included President Friedrich Pops, vice-president David Albala and General Secretary M. S. Spitzer. less efforts the outside world for the first time since Hitler's rise to power, has learned just how much cooperation can be expected from the Nazis in handling the refugee problem in the futureThe results of MrRnblee's negotiations have met with a good deal of outside criticism, particularly in view of the German excesses against the Jews last November, and even now the German pro. posals may be open to serious criticism on moral, diplomatic and qcononric grounds, but at least a sound foundation has been laid and with the ki owledge of Germany's position in the matter, the field is now clear for action by other countriesThree commissions soon will be sent out to investigate colonization prospects in parts of the world where thousands of new settlers may establish new homes. One is going to the Philippines where Manuel L. Quezon, President of the Commonwealth, has announced that his government is willing to accept at least 1,000 settlers annually and has issued a special invitation to doctors, engineers and Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain last November offered for colonization. Proposal of this territory led to an attack on Chamberlain by individuals in the United States on the ground that he was insincere in suggesting for colonization land that is "utterly worthless and uninhabitable." With countries which but a few months ago stubbornly refused to open their doors now showing genuine willingness to take in emigrants from Germany, the Evian committee is greatly encouraged. The possible territories for resettlement now include not only the Philippines, the Dominican Republic and British Guiana, but also Australia, Canada and Latin Amer(Continued on Page Seven) Reading Successor Is Appointed Expulsion Decree Nearing Deadline Rome (WNS)—It was reliably reported that foreign intervention in behalf of 15,000 foreign Jews slated for expulsion under government decree by March 12 may be expected after various legations had studied the problem. It was believed that strong outside influence must be brought to bear on the Rome government which will be asked soon to make good Premier Mussolini's promises to United States Ambassador Phillips and Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain to extend the expulsion date and to urge the Intergovernmental Committee for Refugees to make a study of the situation. Unless '.he Evian body intervenes the ll.-'ian Minister of Interior will ordei .••ass arrests of foreign Jews on Mam 12 and only those who can prove "bility to emigrate within a reasonai/.? period will be given residential j.ermits. It is understood that a largt number of Polish Jews will share the fate of deportees from Germany who have been detained at the Polish-German frontier town of Zbonsyzn since last October. These, in Italy, will be sent to the "no-man's land" in sealed trains. Rumanian, Greek and Hungarian Jews will be dumped in their home countries, while American, French and British Jews will probably be treated in the same way, though more diplomatically. German Jews who cannot be sent back to Germany, will be forced into concentration camps set up by the Italian Government. Meanwhile thousands of Jews from all parts of Italy are storming foreign consulates in the hope of finding some country of refuge by March 12. In the face of constant pleas to the government for permission to remain after the date set for expulsion, the government has thus failed to give any reply, and this fact is taken as a source of possible hope and an indication that the government is at least considering the proposition. Italian Jewish leaders, meanwhile, are concerned over the growing number of conversions of Jews to Catholicism, especially in the smaller towns where Jewish communities are small and weak. It is reported (Continued on Page Seven) BERLIN RABBI DEAD IN HOLLAND London (WNS)—Lord Samuel, chairman of the Council for German Jewry since 1936 resigned and according to reliable sources will be succeeded by Lord Reading. Arnhem the Netherlands (WNS) —Dr. Jacob Horowitz, vice-president of the Rabbinical Association of Germany, who recently came to Arnhem from Frankfort on the 'Main, died here. He was sixtyfive years old. Dr. Horowitz was reported last December a mental patient in a Frankfort hospital following a fortnight's detention in prison, to which he was taken during a general round-up of Jews. He was the spiritual leader of the Orthodox Frankfort Jewish community, a teacher in the Jewish Religious and Pedagogical Academy at Frankfort and the author of many books on philosophical subjects.

With kindest regards and best wishes to you and other Miamians who have assisted me so effectively, I am Sincerely yours, (Signed) Pat PAT CANNON FERGUSON ASKS VOTERS SUPPORT Ralph B. Ferguson, in the midst nf his campaign in the present Recall Election, is pointing with nride to a letter he received, which is re-printed below: CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES House of Representatives Washineton. D. "C. February 14, 1939 Dr. Ralph B. Ferguson, fity Commissioner, Miami. Florida. Dar Ralph: I feel that I would be remiss if T did not take this opportunity to thank you and the City of Miami for the wonderful support you have eiven me in my recent fieht now in progress to secure a site in Miami for a Naval Air Base. You as an individual have been particularly instrumental in securing for me all the facilities which our beautiful city offers in this connection and I am indeed thankful, as a fellow-Miamian for the work that you have done in this matter despite the fact that you are now engaged in an election campaign. You are to be commended for the civic pride which you have exhibited and in my humble opinion. I do not believe that any Miamian has a right to question your civic interest. It goes without saying that I could not have made this fight had it not been for the tireless efforts of both the city and county ficials and I feel it my duty to so express myself. Whether the fight to which I have referred and in which I am onw actively engaged is won or lost, I shall always feel kindly toward you for the treat•ment and conduct which has been •employed in connection with this •proposition which means so much Dr. Ralph B. Ferguson, prominent in local professional, civic and fraternal organizations since his arrival in Miami about 17 years ago, in discussing the recall election said: "It is my desire to present before the people of Miami a brief explanation of my official actions as their City Commissioner since my induction in office, as well as a statement of my aims and objectives. > Less than two years ago, I was chosen as your Commissioner with a vote of in the neighborhood of 12.000 out of ltj.000 votes cast Tnrs was the highest number of votes cast for any of the candidates for 1 the office of City Commissioner, '''his mandate gave me the assurance that I held the people's trust and confidence. This rebuke to my enemies fired them to unceasing; activities since my election. A short review of their efforts and motives is worthy of considera j tion. The Recall movement was instituted against the three commissioners who were under indictment. I felt that this was inequitable. I should not be called upon tu face other people's enemies any more than they should be called upon to face mine. The Recall Was directed against three commissioners as a unit. I still think iat if a Recall were necessary, here should have been individual 'etitions, as peonle who were my nemies signed the petitions to pet ip and in so doing, it was also ecessary to sign against Mr. Wi'. 'ims and Mr. DuBose and their enemies who signed against them naturally had to take me along. "I have always trie dto work for the best interest of this community, have lived here 17 years, and intend to live here the rest of my life. I have tried to represent the young and progressive element, and have tried to think of the Miami of tomorrow. "I believe that Miami needs a liberal policy, and I always have and shall lend my efforts toward achieving it. "A Recall Election is harder to win than a regular election because I must obtain over 50 per cent of the votes, and I hope you thinking people are not going to have your intelligence insulted by letting the papers pink out and tell you who they want you to sponsor. I have fought your battles POLITICAL BRIEFS Norris W. Broadway, as candidate in the recall election for City Commission, opposes: "Special interests that seek to control City Government through financing offices; wasteful and unnecessary campaigns of candidates for city expenditure of public funds or the employment of special city attorneys at exorbitant salaries;" and states: "I am not associated with any group or clique politically or otherwise. I am runnning entirely alone on the insistence of numerous friends. I will not resign during a crisis when my services are needed most. Therefore, the active support and influence of every voter is solicited." DABrooks, as candidate in the recall election for City Commission, to be held next Wednesday, points to his fifteen years of business experience, and in his campaign platform pledges: "to return to the people, and among the things he favors and will fight for are: "Removal of railroad tracks to a suitable location, thereby eliminating traffic congestion and hazards; the present Charter with corrective changes, a strict observance of the City Charter by all Commissioners; THF.

The Enemy of Humanity From Thomas Mann, world renowned author, now a voluntaryexile from Germany, in an article entitled "Culture and Politics" contained in the Calling Americaissue of Survey Graphic, comes this indictment of the German regime and the elements in Germany responsible for its rise to power: The enemy of humanity. To this has the German spirit CMM with its anti-democratic cultural prideThis awful name, a name accursed, has become its nameThe intellectual German bourgeois could never have dreamed it, and thinks he is dreaming now that it has become the truth. But true it is; His refusal to realize that politics are part of the human problem has jssued in political frightfulness, enslavement to power the totalitarian state. The fruit of his aesthetic bourgeois culture is barbarism; a savagery of convictions, purposes and methods like to nothing in the world before. His elegant disdain of democratic revolution has made him the tool of another revolution; an anarchic one. running amuck to threaten the foundations and props of all our Western morality and civilization; a world revolution of the Huns in olden times can even be compared.'' In intensity of cruelty the institution now linked with the I German name surpasses the bestialities of the savages who inhabited the forests of Germany of old. Germany, because of its adherence to a policy of brute force and racial antagonisms, has become the foe of civilization, the enemy of humanity and the antagonist of every influence that ikes for human good. Nursery Stakes Soon to Be Run The famous $1,000 Nursery S:ake eliminations at West Flagk r Kennel Club these past couple of weeks have been the talk of the greyhound racing: world.

Dr. Ginsberg is well known to the Hebrew reading public in the United States, both through his many literary creations and thru the tributes accorded him by the Hebrew and general press upon his current mission to America.
