annual president's address. Hav-
ing a full sympathy for and un-
derstanding of the suffering of
the people throughout the world,
we must yet maintain our sense
of balance and proportion, remem-
bering that as citizens of these
United States our obligations are
first to the welfare of our coun-
try, but always extending a hand
of sympathy and aid to suffering
humanity wherever there be need.
"The persecution of European
Jewry has horrified and challeng-
ed the entire world- This district
grand lodge may discuss and rec-
dmmend but it cannot of itself
take action in an effort to alle-
viate world suffering, i .
"World Jewry is bleeding. But
when in the history of Jewry has
there ever been an extended period
of peace and tranquility? We must
maintain our courage and not lose
confidence in the future- Be-
ing a Jew means that you have re-
sponsibilities and obligations that
cannot be surrendered and aban-
doned at will. By being united,
sincere, generous and self-respect-
ing, we may look forward to a fu-
ture of contentment that will per-
mit us to look back upon a dark,
distant past."
Highlights of the convention
were:
Resolution was adopted honor-
ing the memory of Brother J.
Louis Shochet. and all assembled

Those who have already leftonly

in 1848 because of his efforts in
behalf of democracy. One of
his lifelong friends, incidentally,
was a Dr. Abraham Jacobi. It
wasn't for asking German students

Anyone who will stress in a public
speech that he is particularly hap-

that this country will soon have

ment," sounds bad to us. We
expect him to start a "Heil Heil"
movement any day now. Father

He's going to point out that they

FAVOR ENDING OF MANDATE
Tel Aviv (WNS Palcor Agency)
The municipality of this all-
Jewish city has issued a proclama-
tion declaring that the Jews will
neither accept nor agree to Great
Britain's suggestions as reported-
In the name of the 150000 inhab-
itants of this city the municipal-
ity telegraphed the following
warning to Prime Minister Cham-
berlain and Colonial Secretary
Malcolm Mac-Donald:
"Under no conditions will we
agree to a minority status, which
would be a denial of our rights as
recognized by the entire civilized
world- We appeal to you and we
warn you not to betray our trust
that the great British people will
fulfill their obligation's towards
the Jews."
Urging unity, discipline and
strength, David ben Gurion.
chairman of the Jewish Agency
for Palestine, sent the following
message to the Yishuv from
London, where he is attending
the Palestine conferences:
"It is designed to liquidate the
Jewish National Home and to
hand us over to the rule of the
leaders of the terrorist bands.
This attempt will not succeed-
The strength of the Yishuv. the
presfare of the Jews in the Dias-
pora, the conscience of the
righteous in England and the
moral and political assistance of
the nations of the world will
frustrate the attempt of our en-
emies to end our existence-
There must be no panic. The
representatives of our people
who stand on guard here are
confident that every one of you
will stand the supreme test- We
have confidence in your unity,
discipline and strength-"
London, (WNS Palcor Agency)
Characterizing press reports
about British intentions for future
policy in Palestine as "misleading"
and as the cause of serious Inci-
dents in Palestine, Colonial Secre-
tary Malcolm MacDonald appealed
in the House of Commons for a
suspension of judgment by the
public in England and in Palestine
on what they propose to do until
"an authoritative statement can
be made."
Such statement, he quickly ad-
ded, will be issued at the appro-
priate time "when the negotia-
tions with the Arab and Jewish
delegations have advanced fur-
ther."
Apparently greatly worried by
the reaction of renewed violence in
Palestine as a result of reports of
Great' Britain's proposed solution
for the Palestine problem, Colon-
ial Secretary MacDonald in the
House made an attempt to allay
the storm of protest aroused here
and in Palestine by the suggestion
for abrogation of the Mandate and
an independent state with a Jewish
minority.
Declaring that press reports on
the British proposals were incom-
plete and misleading, and appeal-
ing to both the British and the
Palestinian public to withhold
judgment until an authoritative
statement has been made by the
Government. Mr. MacDonald fur-
ther pointed out to the members
that the policy pursued in Pales-
tine could not be changed until
the House had given its approval
to such change.
Asked by Major Clement R. At-
lee, Opposition Leader, for a state-
ment on the present progress of
the Palestine conferences, the Col-
onial Secretary said that the Brit-
ish delegation had laid before the
Arab and Jewish delegations sep-
arately certain1 suggestions for a
solution of the Palestine problem.
"These suggestions," he stated.
"are still the subject of discussion
at the conferences, and in their
present state are not yet in a po-
sition for public announcement.
Unfortunately, incomplete and in-
some important respects mislead-
ing press reports purporting to
give the substance of the sugges-
tions have been published and have
been sent to Palestine, where they
have been the cause of serious in-
cidents-
"I appeal to the House and to
the wider public here and in Pales-
tine to withhold judgment on the
lines of the solution being consid-
ered by the conferences until an
authoritative statement has been
made. This will be done at the
appropriate time, when negotia-
tions with the Arab and Jewish
delegations will have advanced
further."
But when Major Atlee asked for
assurance that in the pifiposals
that it had placed before the con-
ferences the Government was not
departing from the principles of
the Mandate for the Jewish Nat-
ional Home, Mr. MacDonald re-
fused to give such assurance, re-
plying that it would be a mistake
for him to make a statement re-
garding the discussions, which ara
still in a fluid state of proceeding.
He hoped, however, that no deduc-
tions would be drawn from this
refusal.

cepted in principle the ending of

Purim
The word Purim means a casting of lotsor to be up to
date, the throw of the dice. The fate of the Jews In Persia was
made to depend on the way the lots fell. It was purely a mat-
ter of chance. Even though in Persia the Jews were saved, for
us today it isn 't so hard to imagine that the lots might have fal-
len a different way and the Jews have not been saved.
England called a conference of Jews and Arabs to decide
what to do next in Palestine. Even though Jews were invited
to this conference, it is difficult not to suspect that England
made up its mind that nothing will be left to the chance of a
different decision coming out of the conference. For many
years, England has put obstacles in the way of Jews and Arabs
sitting down to discuss their differences. Now that bitter fight,
ing for several years has made it almost impossible.for Jews and
Arab* to Bit cahnly and discuss their problems, England calls &
meeting;----
As Jews, we would much rather be allowed to work out our
own lives rather than rely on the chance of what the lots may
bring. Our representatives went to London not knowing what
if in store for them. We once again have to depend upon the
good-will of a non-Jewish government whose intentions we do
not know. We do not have a Mordecai or an Esther to help us
from behind the scenes, but we do have one thingour faith
in onr goal and our determination that nobody can stop the
progress of the Jewish Homeland in Palestine. With that faith
and with that determination, the Jews are in London well arm-
ed. We hope that they will succeed.Y. J.

The "Y" is a Bee-Hive of acti-
vitirs these days. It is a source
of pride and pleasure to the foun-
rffr of this institution to see ev-
ery room in the building; occupied
in the evenings-. In these rooms
One will find one of the many di-
visions of the 'Y" or one of the
local Jewish organizations con-
iu'ting a meeting. In the past
fw weeks we have added two or-
rnriizations to "our home." The
Workmen's Circle, and the Sons
and Daughters of the Jewish War
Veterans, .Freda Markowitz Post.
Welcome to these two splendid as-
sociations- We hope they will
prosper in their new home.
In a short while we will have a
library, a checker and chess club
and many other activities. "We
aim to please" is our motto.
With the able assistance of Sid-
ney Stepkin. our Executive Direc-
tor is making arrangements with
the Miami Musicians Union, to or-
ganize a beginner's class in instru-
mental music. Incidentally Sid is
desirious of forming a "Y" orches-
tra among those who are able to
play an instrument. All those in-
terested in either project, please
see the executive director. For fur-
ther details please attend the meet-
ing of the Junior Division next
Monday night March 6th. at which
time a member of the musicians
local will speak and render instru-
mental selections.
Speaking of the Junior Division,
reminds us of the excellent enter-

Each year is told anew the an-
cient story of the sacrifice of a
beloved queen for her people.
Each year the tale is brought to
life in vivid detail in the reading
of the Scroll. Adults weep for
joy and children stamp their
feet and join in the merry laugh-
ter over the just fate of the
wicked Haman. In the story
which never grows old we find
hope and the courage to rise
above misery to where right is
victorious.
On Saturday evening, March 4th
the Jews the world over will usher
in the Feast of Lots, or Purim-
They will assemble in the syna-
gogue and again read the Megillah
the Old Testament scroll of Es-
ther.
The question has often been rais-
ed: How could a book in which the
name of God does not appear have
found its way into the Bible? And
the answer very plainly is, that
even though God be not mentioned
by name. His Providence is so evi-
dent in its working to save Israel
that no mention of the name was
at all necessary- Like the belief
in immortality, it was taken for
granted.
The story is one of the most
telling in the Bible. It has all the
elements which make for human
interest hatred, love, revenge,
triumph. It tells of a brave and
daring Jewess and a noble and
loyal Jew who together saved the
Jews from imminent peril. Brief-
ly stated, the plot of the story
consists of a cold-blooded frame-
up against a whole people, a col-
lossal libel against the Jews which
the king could be made to believe
only in a stupor of drunkenness.
In a more sober frame of mind
the king learns of his error. The
fair name of the Jew is vindicat-
ed. The tables are turned. Wick-
edness is caught in the net of its
own weaving. Truth triumphs
over treachery.
The story of Purim takes us
back some 2500 years to Persia
where the Jews lived in peace and
prosperity (enjoying many privi-
leges and even raising to high po-
sitions in the government) The
king on the throne was Ahasuerus
(probably the same as Xerxes or
Artaxerses) In the midst of a
prolonged celebration the king or-
ders his Queen. Vashti, to appear
and display her charms before his
princes and vassals. She refuses,
whereupon the counsellors of the
king advise the selection of a new
Queen. The most beautiful virgins
of the land are assembled and
brought before the king, whose
heart is won by the grace and sim-
plicity of the Jewish maiden, Es-
ther, also called Hadassah.
After this event, King Ahasuer-
us appointed Haman, who was a
direct descendant of Amalek, as
his chief minister. Haman visit-
ed the king every day. As Haman
entered and left the palace, the
king's servants would how deeply
before himall but Mordecai. the
Jew. Haman was strongly offend-
ed by Mordecai's behavior and de-
termined to wreek a bloody re-
venge- He would make all the
Jews of Persia suffer.
Accordingly Haman appeared
before the king and lodged false
charges against the Jews of Per-
sia "There is a certain people
scattered abroad and dispersed
among the peoples in all the pro-
vinces of thy kingdom," he said to
the king, "and their laws are dif-
ferent from those of every people;
neither do they keep the king's
laws; therefore it profiteth not the
king to tolerate them." Haman
urged the king to permit him to
destroy the entire Jewish popula-
tion of Persia. The king set his
seal to the plan, and the thirteenth
day of the Hebrew month of Adar
was determined upon by lot as the
day for the wholesale massacre
Because the day was chosen by
lots, which in the Persian tongue
is "pur," this day called "Purim."
On becoming aware of Hamaiv's
plot, Mordecai put on sackcloth
and sent word to his cousin. Queen
Esther, enjoining her to petition
the king to revoke the death
decree against the Jews.
"Who knoweth whether thou are
not come to royal estate for such
a time as this?" Esther consented
to do so, "If I perish, I perish"
But the king was captivated by
her charms. She begged that she
be permitted to entertain him and
Haman at a private banquet. The
request was granted. At the ban-
quet, she begged to entertain them
again on the morrow. Hainan's
heart swells with pride, but his joy
is embittered by the thought of
the Jew Mordecai. On the advice
of his wife and friends, he builds
a tall gallows on which he intend-
ed presently to hang his enemy
But on that night, the king could
not sleep. His servants read to
him from the book of records and
chanced to read how Mordecai sav-
ed the life of the king. The ser-
vants told the king that Mordecai
leceived no recognition for this. At
this moment. Haman arrived to
get the approval of the king to
hang Mordecai. Without mention-
ing wham he had in mind, the king
asked Haman how he might honor
a certain person. Thinking that
the king meant himself, he sug-
gested that the person ride on the
king's horse in royal robes and
that the highest in the land act as
crier. Then the king said, make
haste and do so to Mordecai. the
Jew.
At the second banquet, Esther
denounced the wicked Haman be-
fore the king, and exposed his
cruel and spiteful design, reveal-
ing at the same time, that she was
herself a Jewess and. therefore,
condemned by Haman to be slain.
The king's wrath was terrible. It
was only appeased when Haman
was forthwith hanged on the very
gallows he had prepared for Mor-
decai.
The king then elevated Morde-
cai to the position of prime min-
ister and permitted the Jews to
"stand for their lives" and also
ordered his soldiers to protect
them. The massacre of the Jews
was thus averted. Whereupon
Mordecai decreed that the four-
teenth of Adar shall be observed
as a day of feasting and gladness
of sending portions one to another,
and gifts to the poor.
The story of purim has been re-
peated time and again in Jewish
history. Many have been the Ha-
itians who plotted against the Jew
The hand of Hainan is seen today
in various periods of its history,
bearing heavily on the back of the
Jew. The reading of the Megillah
revives the hope of the Jew. It is
read in an old traditional chant.
At each mention of Haman, the
reading is usually interrupted by
the stamping of feet or the whirl-
ing of "Gragers" (rattles) in de-
nunciation of Haman. The origin
of this noisy denunciation may be
traced to the custom of writing the
name of Haman on two stones or
boards, and then pounding them
together until the name is eradi-
cated in accordance with the lit-
eral interpretation of the Bible in-
junction, "And thou shalt blot out
SOCIETY
SPINOZA GROUP
I MEETS
About 300 people gathered on
the lawn to hear the third lecture
on Moses Maimonides by Dr. Ab-
raham Wolfson- "Maimonides was
the great conciliator," Dr. Wolfson
told the big audience, "the great
conciliator between faith and
science, religion and philosophy.
Religion is true and science is
true, hence the two are not opposed
to one another."
Rabbi Colman Zwitman of Tem-
ple Israel and Dr Simon Ginsberg,
president of the'Hebrew Writer's
Association of Palestine, were the
guests of honor. Rabbi Zwitma:i
spoke in glowing terms of the fine
cultural and educational work that
the Spinoza Group is doing in
Greater Miami. He then introduc-
ed Dr- Ginsberg as the King of the
Hebrew poets. Dr. Ginsberg spoke
of the work of the Hebrew writ
ers in Palestine, of their endeavor
to spread Hebrew culture and He-
brew learning not only in Palestine
but among the Jewish people the
world over. Dr. Ginsberg spoke in
beautiful Hebrew for more than an
hour.
Next Saturday afternoon the
Group will meet again on the lawn
at 1059 Collins Avenue, Miami
Beach. After listening to the first
two acts of the opera, "II Trova-
tore," Dr. Wolfson will speak on
"Maimonides, the Philosopher"
This will mark the fourth and last
lecture on Maimonides.
the remembrance of Amalek "
Purim is a very happy holiday.
One of the most ancient customs
is that of Schlach Mones or the
sending of gifts to friends and rel-
atives; usually trays filled with
various dainties. This custom in-
cludes the giving of alms to the-
poor, so that they too may enjoy
the happy holiday.
Special cakes, in the form of tri-
angles, are eaten on Purim. These
are known as Haman Taschen, the
Yiddish or German term for Ha
man pockets. The Hamar.*taschen
are filled with poppy seeds, rai
sins and honey or cheese-
"Purim spielers" are another
feature of the general program of
Purim merriment, especially in
parts of Eastern Europe. A group
of young men and women of the
town mask and go from house to
house singing and presenting hum-
orous sketches or episodes from
the story of Purim. Purim is also
an occasion for plays, masquerades
balls or banquets-
On Purim night the members of
the family usually get together for
the Purim Seudah, or Purim din-
ner. The housewife prepares her
best dishes for the occasion.
Many Jews observe the thir-
teenth of Adar. the day preceding
Purim, as the Ta'anith Esther, or
Fast of Esther, in commemoration
of Esther's devotion to her people
when, fasting and praying, she
went before the king uninvited to
plead with him for the preserva-
tion of her people-
The Megillah. the Scroll of Es-
ther, will never perish, reads a
Talmudic authority. The Megillah
symbolizes the eternal hope of the
Jewthe hope that Truth and Jus-
tice will be firmly established on
earth and that Righteousness and
Peace will be the guiding principle
of international relationships.

ABOUT PEOPLE
Those rumors about Governor
Lehman's impending resignation
are cropping up again. In view
of the fact that it was only the
danger of a victory by the popular
District Attorney Dewey that made
him change his mind about retir-
ing after his last term, we are not
campletely incredulous. A sur-
prise party for Dr. Stephen S-
Wise is being prepared by his of-
ficial family of the Free Syna-
gogue and Jewish Institute of Re-
ligion to celebrate the 66th anni-
versary of his birth. The sur-
prise element lies in the fact that
the party is scheduled to take
place two days after Dr- Wise's
birthday, which this year, as usual
falls on St. Patrick's day. What
with new plans for the redemption

There has been such a hue and
cry about the alien -that it is high
time we stoppe dto ask "who is
the alien?"
While it is true that in recent
years the numbers emigrating for
various reasons exceeded the num
iber of those entering the country
for permanent residence, statis-
tics show that there are still about
4,100,000 more non-citizens, many
of whom are desirous of becoming
citizens, but who require some aid
in overcoming what seems to them
insurmountable obstacles.
Whether a social agency or vol-
unteer organization has extended
a warm and friendly hand- where
ever communities have tried to un-
derstand and interpret the new
Americans, there has been an in-
creased confidence in American
life, in American institutions and
the democratic ideal. It is signi
ficant that those communities us-
ually are the communities in which
there are active Sections of the
National Council of Jewish Wo-
men.
The majority of these 4,100.000
non-citizens have been living here
since the World War or even be-
fore. Their children are a new
generation of native Americans,
now approaching maturity. All of
the happenings in other parts of
the world serve to make them the
more graceful for the opportunity
to become a part of their adopted
land-
For twenty years, through its
two hundred Sections, the Nation-
al Council of Jewish Women has
served the foreign-born from the
moment they reach our shores,
through all the processes of ad-
justment and integration- Its ex-
perience reveals some of the rea-
sons why there are still this num-
ber of foreign-born who have not
yet taken out citizenship papers.
There was perhaps first of all the
high fee for naturalization papers,
the high educational requirements,
the lack of education facilities, in-
adequate information, fear of ex-
ploitation, and oppressing econo-
mic need which made the mainten-
ance of the family the immediate
problem of the day.
The late Commissioner Daniel
W- McCormack developed a new
approach for the examination of
the non citizenplacing the em-
phasis on character and attach-
ment to the principles of the con-
stitution instead of isolated facts
and trick questions.
The Hon- James L. Houteling.
the newly appointed Commissioner
brings to his position the same
vision and understanding and is
carrying out the program planned
by his predecessor.
The Miami Section, National
Council of Jewish Women through
its membership and supporting co-
operation from the various wo
men's and men's clubs here locallv
are engaging in making an alie-
survey. with a view to he!

British Favor
Ending Mandate
(Continued from Page One)
Britain's Mandate over Palestine
and the establishment of an inde-
pendent Arab State there, was re-
ported this week in Reynold's
News, a Sunday paper owned by
the co-operative press.
According to this foreshadowed
plan a legislative Assembly with
a Jewish minority would be estab-
lished for an interim period; and
after that period an independent
state would be established having
a treaty with Great Britain along
lines similar to those enjoyed by
Egypt and Iraq.
London, (WNS Palcor Agency)
The Jewish Conference Commit-
tee, composed of delegates to the
formal Government conferences,
unanimously ratified the decision
of the Jewish Agency categorically
to reject the Government's propos-
als as propounded.
When the Jewish delegation met
with the Government representa-
tives here in a session that lasted
two and a half hours, Dr- Chaim
Weizmann, president of the Jewish
Agency, read the statement that
had been adopted by the Confer-
ence Committee; and thereafter
the Government representatives
retired for twenty minutes to con-
-ider the statement.
When they returned Colonial
Secretary MacDonald. in present-
ing his answer, referred to his
statement in Parliament earlier in
th" day, reiterating his plea for
suspension of puMic judgment un-
til an authoritative statement orl
be facts involved can be made- He
! -.gain pointed out that reports in
he press regarding proposals he
had submitted confidentially to
both the Jews and the Arabs were
] in many respects inaccurate and
unauthorized.
It was decided that there would
be no further informal meetings
j between individual representatives.
Hosts at the luncheon were Com-
mander H. H. Farr, J- William

JEWISH WELFARE BUREAU
ACTIVITIES
R. R. ADLER, President
MRS. SADYE G. ROSE. Executive Secretary
MRS. HARRIET EPPSTEIN, Case Worker
Starting with this issue this
column will carry to the commu-
nity the different types of services
that this Bureau renders to both
the local and transient public of
'.he Jewish faith-
The services vary with the dif-
ferent situations presented and
.ire treated on an individual case
work basis- On factional informa-
tion received through clients, rela-
;ives, friends and interested agen-
cies a plan is evolved for the prob-
lem presented in each situation-
In analyzing siuatitorts that
cime to the attention of the Jew-
ish Welfare Bureau it is often
found that the client is not aware
of the resources offered to him
through the community or some-
times unaware of his own resourc-
es. One of our most important
functions is to make the client
aware of these resources and in
availing himself of these opportu-
nities to again become self-sup-
porting, as in the following:
Mrs. X.. a woman of about sev-
enty who had always been a self-
maintaining individual found her-
self in need of assistance and hes-
itatingly came to us for aid- It
was very difficult for her to talk
about her financial situation to
the Social Worker since she had
never been confronted with this
type of situation before-

Mrs. X had been a widow for a
number of years and had support-
ed herself and her sick son, of
about thirty years of age, with
monies left her by her husband.
This money all had been spent on
maintenance for both of them.
After many office interviews,
home visits and visits to relatives
and friends it was learned that
there was a small insurance pol-
icy, a loan on which would main-
tain the family for a least six
months, at the end of which time
Mrs. X will be eligible for old age
assistance. Until an insurance
adjustment was made the Bureau
assisted financially. Mrs. X. did
not know that the insurance pol-
icy which she held had this loan
value nor did she know that the
State now cared for dependent in-
dividuals over C5.
Today Mrs. X is self-maintain-
ing, carrying on in her little home
and caring for her son. Her mor-
ale is again reestablished and she
no longer feels that she needs to
be a dependent upon the local
community.

When they returned Colonial Secretary MacDonald. in presenting his answer, referred to his statement in Parliament earlier in th" day, reiterating his plea for suspension of puMic judgment until an authoritative statement orl •be facts involved can be madeHe -.gain pointed out that reports in •he press regarding proposals he had submitted confidentially to both the Jews and the Arabs were ] in many respects inaccurate and unauthorized.

It is bad judgment on the part of a general publication, but it's downright inexcusable when done by a Jewish paper. Ye ta prominent American Jewish weekly proudly highlighted such an interview with Leon Daudet a couple of weeks ago. Hadassah is going places these days, what with Aryan Mrs. Eugene Meyer making a large donation to the Youth Ali yah and Mrs. Louis D. Brandeis cfficially becoming a member. Which reminds us that Mrs. James Roosevelt was a patroness of a recent Junior Hadassah dance in New York. Of the six woman judges of New York City three are non-Aryans. They are Jeanette G. Brill, Anna Moskowitz Kross and Justine Wise Polier. ABOUT PEOPLE Those rumors about Governor Lehman's impending resignation are cropping up again. In view of the fact that it was only the danger of a victory by the popular District Attorney Dewey that made him change his mind about retiring after his last term, we are not campletely incredulous. A surprise party for Dr. Stephen SWise is being prepared by his official family of the Free Synagogue and Jewish Institute of Religion to celebrate the 66th anniversary of his birth. The surprise element lies in the fact that the party is scheduled to take place two days after DrWise's birthday, which this year, as usual falls on St. Patrick's day. What with new plans for the redemption djf German Jews, at so much per head, being evolved every other day. Meyer W. Weisgal. director of the New York World's Fair Palestine Pavilion, suggests that the newspapers list the current quotation on Jews in their daily financial columns. Ethel Moss, Dorothy Thompson's companion at that Madison Square Garden Bund meeting, from which both were ejected for indulging in their constitutional right to laugh, is the wife of Jack Moses, who is Miss Thompson's agent. Jack is the son of Mrs. Harry Moses, who was jiuite active as a Broadway producer for a number of years, hav(Continaed on Page Eight) long and happy lives together: Mr. Jacob Rosenberg and Mrs. Fannie Ludmerer; MrHyman Forrest and Miss Rosalind Littman; Mr. Benjamin Fertel and Miss Mitzi Schiffman; Mr. Benjamin Tepper and Miss Hazel Levine.

There were 132 official delegates attending, representatives of some 40 subordinate lodgesThe convention was the largest held so far. "To the Jews of America the American flag is always first and all others are behind it" Mr. Addelburg told the delegates in his annual president's address. Having a full sympathy for and understanding of the suffering of the people throughout the world, we must yet maintain our sense of balance and proportion, remembering that as citizens of these United States our obligations are first to the welfare of our country, but always extending a hand of sympathy and aid to suffering humanity wherever there be need. "The persecution of European Jewry has horrified and challenged the entire worldThis district grand lodge may discuss and recdmmend but it cannot of itself take action in an effort to alleviate world suffering, i "World Jewry is bleeding. But when in the history of Jewry has there ever been an extended period of peace and tranquility? We must maintain our courage and not lose confidence in the future. Being a Jew means that you have responsibilities and obligations that cannot be surrendered and abandoned at will. By being united, sincere, generous and self-respecting, we may look forward to a future of contentment that will permit us to look back upon a dark, distant past." Highlights of the convention were: Resolution was adopted honoring the memory of Brother J. Louis Shochet. and all assembled bowed heads in silent prayer in memory of Brother Shochet. A. Z. A. allocated eight hundred dollars for Fifth District; Fifth District gets twenty-six hundred dollars for Student Union Work of which Florida receives the sum of eight hundred dollars. Leo N.

May and July was included. Ladies Auxiliary projects to be furthered, the president to appoint a committee to find ways and means to expand chapters. (Only three Auxiliaries exist now: Washington.

Ambassador to Germany, now in this BR1TSSH CABINET DECLARED TO FAVOR ENDING OF MANDATE Tel Aviv (WNS Palcor Agency) —The municipality of this allJewish city has issued a proclamation declaring that the Jews will neither accept nor agree to Great Britain's suggestions as reportedIn the name of the 150000 inhabitants of this city the municipality telegraphed the following warning to Prime Minister Chamberlain and Colonial Secretary Malcolm Mac-Donald: "Under no conditions will we agree to a minority status, which would be a denial of our rights as recognized by the entire civilized worldWe appeal to you and we warn you not to betray our trust that the great British people will fulfill their obligation's towards the Jews." Urging unity, discipline and strength, David ben Gurion. chairman of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, sent the following message to the Yishuv from London, where he is attending the Palestine conferences: "It is designed to liquidate the Jewish National Home and to hand us over to the rule of the leaders of the terrorist bands. This attempt will not succeedThe strength of the Yishuv. the presfare of the Jews in the Diaspora, the conscience of the righteous in England and the moral and political assistance of the nations of the world will frustrate the attempt of our enemies to end our existenceThere must be no panic. The representatives of our people who stand on guard here are confident that every one of you will stand the supreme testWe have confidence in your unity, discipline and strength-" London, (WNS Palcor Agency) —Characterizing press reports about British intentions for future policy in Palestine as "misleading" and as the cause of serious Incidents in Palestine, Colonial Secretary Malcolm MacDonald appealed in the House of Commons for a suspension of judgment by the public in England and in Palestine on what they propose to do until "an authoritative statement can be made." Such statement, he quickly added, will be issued at the appropriate time "when the negotiations with the Arab and Jewish delegations have advanced further." Apparently greatly worried by the reaction of renewed violence in Palestine as a result of reports of Great' Britain's proposed solution for the Palestine problem, Colonial Secretary MacDonald in the House made an attempt to allay the storm of protest aroused here and in Palestine by the suggestion for abrogation of the Mandate and an independent state with a Jewish minority. Declaring that press reports on the British proposals were incomplete and misleading, and appealing to both the British and the Palestinian public to withhold judgment until an authoritative statement has been made by the Government. Mr. MacDonald further pointed out to the members that the policy pursued in Palestine could not be changed until the House had given its approval to such change. Asked by Major Clement R. Atlee, Opposition Leader, for a statement on the present progress of the Palestine conferences, the Colonial Secretary said that the British delegation had laid before the Arab and Jewish delegations separately certain 1 suggestions for a solution of the Palestine problem. "These suggestions," he stated. "are still the subject of discussion at the conferences, and in their present state are not yet in a position for public announcement. Unfortunately, incomplete and insome important respects misleading press reports purporting to give the substance of the suggestions have been published and have been sent to Palestine, where they have been the cause of serious incidents"I appeal to the House and to the wider public here and in Palestine to withhold judgment on the lines of the solution being considered by the conferences until an authoritative statement has been made. This will be done at the appropriate time, when negotiations with the Arab and Jewish delegations will have advanced further." But when Major Atlee asked for assurance that in the pifiposals that it had placed before the conferences the Government was not departing from the principles of the Mandate for the Jewish National Home, Mr. MacDonald refused to give such assurance, replying that it would be a mistake for him to make a statement regarding the discussions, which ara still in a fluid state of proceeding. He hoped, however, that no deductions would be drawn from this refusal.

While it is true that in recent years the numbers emigrating for various reasons exceeded the num iber of those entering the country for permanent residence, statistics show that there are still about 4,100,000 more non-citizens, many of whom are desirous of becoming citizens, but who require some aid in overcoming what seems to them insurmountable obstacles. Whether a social agency or volunteer organization has extended a warm and friendly handwhere ever communities have tried to understand and interpret the new Americans, there has been an increased confidence in American life, in American institutions and the democratic ideal. It is signi ficant that those communities usually are the communities in which there are active Sections of the National Council of Jewish Women. The majority of these 4,100.000 non-citizens have been living here since the World War or even before. Their children are a new generation of native Americans, now approaching maturity. All of the happenings in other parts of the world serve to make them the more graceful for the opportunity to become a part of their adopted landFor twenty years, through its two hundred Sections, the National Council of Jewish Women has served the foreign-born from the moment they reach our shores, through all the processes of adjustment and integrationIts experience reveals some of the reasons why there are still this number of foreign-born who have not yet taken out citizenship papers. There was perhaps first of all the high fee for naturalization papers, the high educational requirements, the lack of education facilities, inadequate information, fear of exploitation, and oppressing economic need which made the maintenance of the family the immediate problem of the day. The late Commissioner Daniel WMcCormack developed a new approach for the examination of the non citizen—placing the emphasis on character and attachment to the principles of the constitution instead of isolated facts and trick questions. The HonJames L. Houteling. the newly appointed Commissioner brings to his position the same vision and understanding and is carrying out the program planned by his predecessor. The Miami Section, National Council of Jewish Women through its membership and supporting cooperation from the various wo men's and men's clubs here locallv are engaging in making an ali e survey. with a view to he! people in our midst who ha\e t' nr _J some reason or other not seen f-f become American citizens sincj their entrance to the United Stata We are ready to help you, will yo help us?

This money all had been spent on maintenance for both of them. After many office interviews, home visits and visits to relatives and friends it was learned that there was a small insurance policy, a loan on which would maintain the family for a least six months, at the end of which time Mrs. X will be eligible for old age assistance. Until an insurance adjustment was made the Bureau assisted financially. Mrs. X. did not know that the insurance policy which she held had this loan value nor did she know that the State now cared for dependent individuals over C5. Today Mrs. X is self-maintaining, carrying on in her little home and caring for her son. Her morale is again reestablished and she no longer feels that she needs to be a dependent upon the local community.

Purim The word Purim means a casting of lots—or to be up to date, the throw of the dice. The fate of the Jews In Persia was made to depend on the way the lots fell. It was purely a matter of chance. Even though in Persia the Jews were saved, for us today it isn 't so hard to imagine that the lots might have fallen a different way and the Jews have not been saved. England called a conference of Jews and Arabs to decide what to do next in Palestine. Even though Jews were invited to this conference, it is difficult not to suspect that England made up its mind that nothing will be left to the chance of a different decision coming out of the conference. For many years, England has put obstacles in the way of Jews and Arabs sitting down to discuss their differences. Now that bitter fight, ing for several years has made it almost impossible.for Jews and Arab* to Bit cahnly and discuss their problems, England calls & meeting; As Jews, we would much rather be allowed to work out our own lives rather than rely on the chance of what the lots may bring. Our representatives went to London not knowing what if in store for them. We once again have to depend upon the good-will of a non-Jewish government whose intentions we do not know. We do not have a Mordecai or an Esther to help us from behind the scenes, but we do have one thing—our faith in onr goal and our determination that nobody can stop the progress of the Jewish Homeland in Palestine. With that faith and with that determination, the Jews are in London well armed. We hope that they will succeed.—Y. J. THE Y. M. H. A.

Phil Weintraubthe "Y" troubador entertained as only he canThe entire (Continued on Page Seven) Each year is told anew the ancient story of the sacrifice of a beloved queen for her people. Each year the tale is brought to life in vivid detail in the reading of the Scroll. Adults weep for joy and children stamp their feet and join in the merry laughter over the just fate of the wicked Haman. In the story which never grows old we find hope and the courage to rise above misery to where right is victorious. On Saturday evening, March 4th the Jews the world over will usher in the Feast of Lots, or PurimThey will assemble in the synagogue and again read the Megillah —the Old Testament scroll of Esther. The question has often been raised: How could a book in which the name of God does not appear have found its way into the Bible? And the answer very plainly is, that even though God be not mentioned by name. His Providence is so evident in its working to save Israel that no mention of the name was at all necessaryLike the belief in immortality, it was taken for granted. The story is one of the most telling in the Bible. It has all the elements which make for human interest — hatred, love, revenge, triumph. It tells of a brave and daring Jewess and a noble and loyal Jew who together saved the Jews from imminent peril. Briefly stated, the plot of the story consists of a cold-blooded frameup against a whole people, a collossal libel against the Jews which the king could be made to believe only in a stupor of drunkenness. In a more sober frame of mind the king learns of his error. The fair name of the Jew is vindicated. The tables are turned. Wickedness is caught in the net of its own weaving. Truth triumphs over treachery. The story of Purim takes us back some 2500 years to Persia where the Jews lived in peace and prosperity (enjoying many privileges and even raising to high positions in the government) The king on the throne was Ahasuerus (probably the same as Xerxes or Artaxerses) In the midst of a prolonged celebration the king orders his Queen. Vashti, to appear and display her charms before his princes and vassals. She refuses, whereupon the counsellors of the king advise the selection of a new Queen. The most beautiful virgins of the land are assembled and brought before the king, whose heart is won by the grace and simplicity of the Jewish maiden, Esther, also called Hadassah. After this event, King Ahasuerus appointed Haman, who was a direct descendant of Amalek, as his chief minister. Haman visited the king every day. As Haman entered and left the palace, the king's servants would how deeply before him—all but Mordecai. the Jew. Haman was strongly offended by Mordecai's behavior and determined to wreek a bloody revengeHe would make all the Jews of Persia suffer. Accordingly Haman appeared before the king and lodged false charges against the Jews of Persia "There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of thy kingdom," he said to the king, "and their laws are different from those of every people; neither do they keep the king's laws; therefore it profiteth not the king to tolerate them." Haman urged the king to permit him to destroy the entire Jewish population of Persia. The king set his seal to the plan, and the thirteenth day of the Hebrew month of Adar was determined upon by lot as the day for the wholesale massacre Because the day was chosen by lots, which in the Persian tongue is "pur," this day called "Purim." On becoming aware of Hamaiv's plot, Mordecai put on sackcloth and sent word to his cousin. Queen Esther, enjoining her to petition the king to revoke the death decree against the Jews. "Who knoweth whether thou are not come to royal estate for such a time as this?" Esther consented to do so, "If I perish, I perish" But the king was captivated by her charms. She begged that she be permitted to entertain him and Haman at a private banquet. The request was granted. At the banquet, she begged to entertain them again on the morrow. Hainan's heart swells with pride, but his joy is embittered by the thought of the Jew Mordecai. On the advice of his wife and friends, he builds a tall gallows on which he intended presently to hang his enemy But on that night, the king could not sleep. His servants read to him from the book of records and chanced to read how Mordecai saved the life of the king. The servants told the king that Mordecai leceived no recognition for this. At this moment. Haman arrived to get the approval of the king to hang Mordecai. Without mentioning wham he had in mind, the king asked Haman how he might honor a certain person. Thinking that the king meant himself, he suggested that the person ride on the king's horse in royal robes and that the highest in the land act as crier. Then the king said, make haste and do so to Mordecai. the Jew. At the second banquet, Esther denounced the wicked Haman before the king, and exposed his cruel and spiteful design, revealing at the same time, that she was herself a Jewess and. therefore, condemned by Haman to be slain. The king's wrath was terrible. It was only appeased when Haman was forthwith hanged on the very gallows he had prepared for Mordecai. The king then elevated Mordecai to the position of prime minister and permitted the Jews to "stand for their lives" and also ordered his soldiers to protect them. The massacre of the Jews was thus averted. Whereupon Mordecai decreed that the fourteenth of Adar shall be observed as a day of feasting and gladness of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor. The story of purim has been repeated time and again in Jewish history. Many have been the Haitians who plotted against the Jew The hand of Hainan is seen today in various periods of its history, bearing heavily on the back of the Jew. The reading of the Megillah revives the hope of the Jew. It is read in an old traditional chant. At each mention of Haman, the reading is usually interrupted by the stamping of feet or the whirling of "Gragers" (rattles) in denunciation of Haman. The origin of this noisy denunciation may be traced to the custom of writing the name of Haman on two stones or boards, and then pounding them together until the name is eradicated in accordance with the literal interpretation of the Bible injunction, "And thou shalt blot out SOCIETY SPINOZA GROUP I MEETS About 300 people gathered on the lawn to hear the third lecture on Moses Maimonides by Dr. Abraham Wolfson"Maimonides was the great conciliator," Dr. Wolfson told the big audience, "the great conciliator between faith and science, religion and philosophy. Religion is true and science is true, hence the two are not opposed to one another." Rabbi Colman Zwitman of Temple Israel and Dr Simon Ginsberg, president of the'Hebrew Writer's Association of Palestine, were the guests of honor. Rabbi Zwitma:i spoke in glowing terms of the fine cultural and educational work that the Spinoza Group is doing in Greater Miami. He then introduced DrGinsberg as the King of the Hebrew poets. Dr. Ginsberg spoke of the work of the Hebrew writ ers in Palestine, of their endeavor to spread Hebrew culture and Hebrew learning not only in Palestine but among the Jewish people the world over. Dr. Ginsberg spoke in beautiful Hebrew for more than an hour. Next Saturday afternoon the Group will meet again on the lawn at 1059 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach. After listening to the first two acts of the opera, "II Trovatore," Dr. Wolfson will speak on "Maimonides, the Philosopher" This will mark the fourth and last lecture on Maimonides. the remembrance of Amalek Purim is a very happy holiday. One of the most ancient customs is that of Schlach Mones or the sending of gifts to friends and relatives; usually trays filled with various dainties. This custom includes the giving of alms to thepoor, so that they too may enjoy the happy holiday. Special cakes, in the form of triangles, are eaten on Purim. These are known as Haman Taschen, the Yiddish or German term for Ha man pockets. The Hamar.*taschen are filled with poppy seeds, rai sins and honey or cheese"Purim spielers" are another feature of the general program of Purim merriment, especially in parts of Eastern Europe. A group of young men and women of the town mask and go from house to house singing and presenting humorous sketches or episodes from the story of Purim. Purim is also an occasion for plays, masquerades balls or banquetsOn Purim night the members of the family usually get together for the Purim Seudah, or Purim dinner. The housewife prepares her best dishes for the occasion. Many Jews observe the thirteenth of Adar. the day preceding Purim, as the Ta'anith Esther, or Fast of Esther, in commemoration of Esther's devotion to her people when, fasting and praying, she went before the king uninvited to plead with him for the preservation of her peopleThe Megillah. the Scroll of Esther, will never perish, reads a Talmudic authority. The Megillah symbolizes the eternal hope of the Jew—the hope that Truth and Justice will be firmly established on earth and that Righteousness and Peace will be the guiding principle of international relationships.
