wJewisii Floridlaim C 0Mflf the spread of anti-Semitism dur ing recent months, it was reported by Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver and Rabbi Jonah B Wise, Nat ional Chairmen of the United Jewish Appeal fir Refugees and Overseas Needs, who called for immediate action on the part of American Jewry to help alleviate the suffering and homelessnesg "f tens of thousands of men. women and children added to the ranks uf the refugees by the occupation ..f Czecho-Slovakia, the seizure <>f Memel, the adoption of new antiJewish legislation in Hungary, and the pro.Vam of expulsion in Italy against Jews who took up residence in that country after 1919. By far the most tragic dement among the Jews of Central Europe, the leaders of the United Jewish Appeal pointed out, are the refugees from Germany whose path of flight preceded the Eastward march of Nazi aggression, being driven first from Germany to Austria, then to Czecho-Slovakia and now finding all roads of freedom barred Refugees in this category number approximately r,000 in Czecho-Slovakia; about r.,000 in ItalyIn a similar plight are some 14.000 refugees from Sudeterdand, victims of the first dismemberment of Czechoslovakia. The adoption of an economic and professional numerous clauses agailUt Jews in Hungary threat ena to undermine the existence of the 500,000 members of the Jew ish community in that country. Rabbi Silver and Rabbi Wise said. explaining that the restriction last May of Jewish participation • in commerce and the professions to 20 per cent was tantamount to the elimination of fiO.OOO from the -elf-sustainir/g classThis situation may be seriously aggravated f a new bill reducing Jewish economic activity to <"< per cent bein-'s law. for it will mean the impoverishment of an additional 230,000 Jews in Hungary. Recent events in Central Europe have brought to 6,000,000 the total Lumber of Jews in Central and Eastern European countries effected by anti-Semitic activities, the leaders said. Describing the situation in the provinces of Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia which were annexed by the Third Reich upon the destruction of the Czech Republic,! '••wish leaders stressed the fact that Prague had been the center of a flourishing Jewish community ever since the tenth century. "In contrast to their freedom of the Past the 100,000 Jews in Bohemia j and Moravia and the 95.000 in Slovakia are being rapidly and ruthlessly eliminated from all economic, communal and cultural ac-, tivities by the racial Nuremberg [ Actions Committee Meeting Postponed London, i WNS Palcor Agency) — The session of the Zionist Actions Committee, originally scheduled to be held in Jerusalem toward the end of this month, was cancelled iiv view of the postponement by the British Government statement on Palestine policy. The postponement of the meet ing is also known to have resulted from the attitude of the American Zionist leaders, who had strongly urged that no meeting be held, sinenothing had occurred since the conferences at St. .lames Palace to warrant a convocation of Zionist leadership to formulate future policies. It is planned, however, to hold several informative conferences in Eastern and Western Europe, with the participation of members of the Zionist Executive, to clarify the Jewish attitude toward "the British Government. The departure of Malcolm MacDonald. Colonial Secretary, for a two-week holiday on the Continent, seemed to confirm the general ini pression that an announcement of British policy in Palestine is not imminent. It is believed that fur ther steps will be taken before the reassembling of Parliament. There were some indications, however. that a statement of policy might be expected at the end of April. The increased tension in the European situation has been responsible for British delay in taking action on "Palestine. Federation Holds Annual Meeting Britain To Examine Polish Jewish Emigration Problem laws which made exiles and outcasts of the Jewish community of Germany.' the statement by Rabbi Silver and Rabbi Wise declaredIn addition, 70,000 Jews living in Sub-Carpathia have been incorpor ated in Hungary under a regime which offers little hone for normal and unmolested life. The Flagler Room of the McAllister Hotel will he the scene of the second annual membership meeting of the Greater Miami Fed eration of Jewish Welfare Funds Sunday evening, April Ifith at 8:00 o'clock with MrStanley C. Myers, president, presidingComplete detailed reports of the activities of the past year of j the Federation will be heard.! Thirty-six hoard members w-ill be elei ted from the general membership, and other important business will be transacted. The public is urged to be present. Hungary Demands Stringent Laws Budapest, (WNS)— Expressing dissatisfaction with the Govern ment'a anti-Jewish bill as not being sufficiently extreme, the newly-reorganized pro-Nazi arrow Cross Party introduced a severe nrogram to exclude the Jews from Hungary's economic, political and social lifeThe program calls for "Proclamation of the Jews as a separate racial entity; prohibition >f mixed marriages an'd legal sanctions against co-habitation between Jews and non-Jews"; "Deorival of Jews' political rights service in the army"; "Measures to eliminate Jews from the Hungarian state of labor." Parliamentary elections at the end of April gave impetus to the issuance of instructions to the Government party's electorial agents to accept all as party members irrespective of former political affiliation with the exception of Jews Former Premier Bela Imrecly of Hungary has accented an invita tion to attend Hitler's birthday celebration in Berlin on April 20. Imredy, author of Hungary's drasti anti-Jewish bill, resigned his Premiership on February 15th last when he learned that he was of partly Jewish ancestryHe had learned that his mother's grand father was a Jew. London, (WNS)—Josef Beck, Polish Foreign Minister, was as sured by the British Government that the question of emigration and colonization facilities for some 3,500,000 Polish Jews would be examined. The British Foreign Office issued a statement expressed a willingness to discuss the matter but did not commit tht British Gogernment to include Polish or Roumanian Jews in the Evian Committee's colonizatiol schemes. The statement follows: "In the course of recent corner sations in London Colonel Bee Iexpressed the desire that any international effort for the treat ment of Jewish problems should b' extended to that of the Jews ir Poland and that Jewish immi grants throughout Poland should have their share in any opportu nity for settlement which may b( four;,!. Colonel Beck at the samtime, at the request of the Ron manian Government, drew attention to the similar problem of enlisting Roumania. Colonel Beck was assured that His Majesty's Government fully appreciated the difficulty to which he had referred and was at any time ready to examine with the Polish and Roumanian Governments proposals for the solution of problems arising in Poland and Roumania which are a part of the larger problem." The implied recognition by the British Government that Poland may have a "surplus' 'Jewish population which should emigrate aroused fears in Jewish circles that the improved position of the Jewish situation in Poland may be impaired. It had been hoped that closer Anglo-Polish relations would serve to advan n e the position of Jews in Poland. Poland had demanded that territories like British Gu'ana, the Dominican Republic. Santo Domingo, the Philinniiv.'s and N trthern Rhodesia, which now are being surveyed as ••ossible refuges for Jews from Germany, should he opened to Polish* and Roumanian Jews as well. The British, however, hesitate to complicate an already involved refugee problem from Germany and until the colonization schemes for German Jews are well under way it is hoped here that Poland will not attempt an antiJewish policy along the lines of the persecution in GermanyJewish circles feared that the British Foreign Office statement might be considered as recognition by Britain that a separate Jewish %  migration problem exists in Poland exclusive of general emigration problems. It would appear, therefore, that England is showing a willingness to differentiate between Jewish and non-Jewish citizens—a distinction which the lews have always fought against. %' Lord \\ interton warned the House of Commons that it was impossible for any of the thirty two governments represented at the Evian Conference to accept the financial responsibility for transfer and upkeep of the refugees from Central Europe because all the thirty-two governments are "faced with difficult economic. situation's. The last thing that would induce the Reich Government to he reasonable about the amount of property that the Jews would be allowed to take out of Germany." Lord Winterton said, "would be for the Evian Committee to assume financial responsibility" At the same time he em phasized the necessity for greater cooperation by Germany be for, any real problem could be worke outInvestigate Bund Activity in U.

FRIDAY. APRIL 14, 1939 THE JEWISH FLOEIDIAN PAGE THREE wJemsti Floridian B'NAI B'RITH PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY P. O. Box 2973 PLANT AND OFFICES 21 S. W. Second Avenue J. LOUIS SHOCHET. Edito FRED K. SHOCHET, Circulation Manager I'ntered as second class matter July 4, 1930, at the Post Office at Miami, Florida, under the Act o; March 3, 1879 OFFICES IN PRINCIPAL FLORIDA CITIES SUBSCRIPTION One year $2.00 Six Months $1.00 •FRIDAY, APRIL 14. 1939 VOLUME 12.—NUMBER 15 Federation The culmination of a dream will be realized, when on Sunday night, The Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds will hold their annual meeting. Datingback to January jf 1938, when the Jewish Floridian began an intense campaign 'o "Federaticnize" Miami, with a plea that Miami needed and does need a Federation, that Federation was the solution to Greater Miami's problem. that organized Federation was the only way to avoid duplicity, to see that worthwhile and deserving organizations received the support they were entitled to. that collection costs were minimized and did not absorb in most cases the bulk of collections, that at last there would oe but "One campaign a year to reach all Jews for all causes." Despite numerous objections and obstacles that at times seemed unsurmountable and disheartening to the small group, was determined to put "Federation" to test. Now that the first year of Federation is nearing an end, and the first campaign sponsored by the Federation is officially closed, we can readily see when we review what has transpired, that Federation has truly fulfilled its promises and purposes far beyond the hopes and expectations of the 'doubting Thomases." This year, for the first time, Miami has been free from a multiplicity of annual drives for funds. ... for the first time .... have collections costs been held to the unbelievable low level of approximately seven percent and truly appreciable is the fact that the list of contributors to Jewish causes were increased bv fifty percent of previous years and the amount raised $83,044.00, four times more than ever before raised in the community. With the campaign closed but two months, the thirty-five organizations affiliated, have already received fifty percent of their allotment. For the success Federation has realized, sufficient credit and praise cannot be given to Stanley C. Myers and his coworkers, who have truly lived "Federation" the past year. Quoting from an editorial of last May written by the late editor of the Jewish Floridian, J. Louis Shochet: "We have faith in our people w e have faith in the Federation l et Miami Jewry have faith in one another, and it will truly be the faith that will move mountains. Truly Federation has moved mountains. "F BRIEFS BY SIDNEY L. SEGALL SLOVAK JEWS IN NO MAN'S LAND Footnotes to History BY RABBI MORDECAI I. BRIL In Tunisia and Morocco, which are autonomous countries under French protectorate, the Jews maintain their own law courts where civil suits .are judged by tribunals of their own. A 13th century Rabbi felt called upon to issue a vigorous ban against those who studied religious philosophy and certain of the natural sciences before they were twenty-five years old. If a person studied Jewish lore until that age, it was felt, he could safely study anything else after that without having his beliefs undermined. In the community constitution drawn up by the Je of Cracow. Poland in 1595. it is specifically stated that one ir forbidden to go Sholem Lodge held its regular monthly business meeting Tuesday evening in the Elk's Club rooms and a splendid session' it was— with approximately 200 B'nai B'rith members attending. It was one of the most outstanding meet ings ever held, according to comments heard among a large number of Brothers. The meeting featured the initiation into the Order of about forty new members—the names of the candidates initiated being too numerous to mention here. Participating in the ritual were Broth era Burnett Roth, Sam Seitlin. Nat Roth. Dr. Frank Coret, State Federation President; and Al Pal lot, President of Sholem Lodge. Congratulations to you, Brothers. on the impressive reading of the ritual. We trust that the ideals expressed in the ritual will inspire the new Brothers to work conscientiously and untiringly as good B'nai B'rith. In the wake of Nazi occupation of Czecho-Slovakia, thousands of new refugees fled to the borders seeking some escape from the Nuremberg racial laws of Germany. On the frontiers they found themselves in No Man's Land — refused entry into new countries, and forbidden to return to the homes they had left behind. Scenes like these are typical of the tragic plight of many homeless thousands, in whose behalf the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees and Overseas Need" is conducting an unprecedented campaign through union of the fundraising efforts of the Joint Distribution Committee, the United Palestine Appeal, and the National Coordinating Committee Fund, Inc. The Anti-Defamation Commit tee report made by Brother Harry Simonhoff, local chairman, and Brother Abe Aronovitz. State Chairman, was highly commendable The report was enlightening, especially to new and old members who are not familiar with the activities of that most important committee. Furthermore, the report was exhaustive and comprehensive enough for the purpose of apprising the general mem bership of the Ix>dge as to the type of work that is beir^. V'"l has been, done by the Chairman and members of the committee. There can be no over emphasis of the fact that a Jewish citizen individually should never attempt to constitute himself or herself as authorized to speak or act for through the streets at nights playing on musical instruments, nor shall any one, whether household ers. young men. or boys, shout or yell in the streets. If a person does such things, or if a fight breaks out at night, or if someone attacks a citizen or injures his home, the night-watch are required to awaken one or two of the officials who arc experted to get up immediately and to admonish the people to go home. If. however, they have beer.' very violent. the officials have the authority to put them under arrest t'll the morning, when the chief officials of the community will settle their case. Jewry as a wnoie in the solution of.any problem which may ariseAgain, your write] urges that it is your duty as a loyal Jew ami good Ben B'rith to notify the newly opened central office of Sholem Lodge concerning any anti-Semitic problem which may confront you! We assure you that the matter will be in able and competent hands and will most certainly be handled and dealt with in a dignified, commendable and satisfactory manner. The Jewish communal authorities of Metz, France (lf>90) forbade the wearing of red leather shoes. Likewise velvet, fringed, or stitched footwear was forbidden. Only black or white shoes were acceptable. (We wonder: did the shoe manufacturers protest the ruling?) "The salt of money is charity" says the Talmud. In nrtnther passage the term "salted" is applied to a man in the' sense of "qui kminded." In certain places in Russia the belief was formerly current among Jews that if salt was thrown in a part of the house where it is not likely to he swept away, the inhabitants of that house will become poor. Congratulations are in order for Brother Adelman. chairman of the A. Z. A. Committee; Brother Ben I" Vine. Treasurer; Brother Elry Stone, chairman of the Americanization Committee, and Brother DrCharles Werblow, co-chairman of Student Union Committee. respectively, for their splendid reports given at the meeting Tuesday night. Brother Ben's report on the condition of the Treasury was a masterpiece, provoking constant applause of the members during the entire report. Brother Ben collected about $200-00 in dues during one intermission called. Great work without which Sholem Lodge could not exist financially. Palmer Campaign Gains Momentum O'-r-lvds to Brother "Rudy" Ad ler for the wonderful buffet supper which "'i<= served n'ter the meeting.

PAGE FOUR THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Strictly Confidential By PHINEAS J. BIRON FACTS AND FORECASTS One reason why Britain is now making efforts to stop Hitler is that South Africa and the former j German colonies in Africa are the ] next step on the Nazi program. Imagine the chagrin of Gabby Goebbels when, on berating Berlin opera officials for not producing more operas like "Burgschaft," his favorite, he learned that the composer of that opus is Kurt Weill. refugee from Nazism, who has been doing fine in the U S. German refugees—and especially those with families still in Naziland—are warned to look out for housemaids with German accents in New York hotels. Some of them are Nazi spies. Not until early in 1940 will the world be rid of Hitler, says the astrologer, who some months ago predicted that the Ides of March would be critical this year (remember Czechos lovakia )" He adds that war will break out any time between now and May. 1040. and that the result will be the end of the present Italian and German regimes. A Refugee Congregation has been opened in the social hall of one of New York's West Side synagogues by Dr. Joachim Prinz. him self a refugee who came here from hia native Germany only a couple of years ago. after a spell of Nazi jails and concentration camps. WE WONDER How come that New York's 86th Street Casino, headquarters for Nazi-made films, advertises in a German refugee weekly? Are you one of those dumb clucks who sigh that if Hitler only weren't anti-Semite our own Government would d 0 well to take lessons from him ? • Then consider that in Naziland two thirds of the national income is used to carry out the "political and social tasks" Adolf has set himself. • And of course this money is collected by the Nazi government in the form of taxes. We wonder whether that recording of the February Nazi Bund rally in Madison Square Garden which Hitler recently received includes Dorothy Thompson's laughter and the thuds of the blows uniformed storm troopers rained on the little Jew who told Fritz Kuhn what he thought of him. ... If Fritz Wiedmann, Nazi Consul in San Francisco, is wondering why he wasn't received too cordially at the 20th-century Fox movie lot recently, we'll tell him that the chief guide there. Captain J. A. Strasser, is a brother of Gregor Strasser, a victim of the Nazi blood purge some years ago• AXIS AXIOMS In view of the seizure of Albania by the Rome-Berlin axis powers—impending at the time of writing, and probably accomplished long before this reaches you— we offer the following chorus for a famous British anthem: "Rule, Britania! Britannia waives the rules! Britons! Neville, Neville, Neville thinks you're fools'" Credit for the first line goes, of course, to the I. LG. W. U. revue. • "Pins and Needles" What we mean is. Chamberlain knew what he was doing when he shouted so loudly about Poland, the non-German parts of which Hitler doesn't want at present, while Adolf and Benito prepared to annex the little kingdom of Albania, which gives them the firmest foothold anybody could desire in the Balkans. %  All of which reminds us that Winchell has revealed that Chamberlain is one of the largest stockholders in the German dye trust. No wonder he didn't want Hitler to get mad at him. %  Probably this is why the Hollywood studios have requested their stars to keep out of Europe for the time being, but have specified that England is safe for a vacation abroad. • • RIDE, PAGLIACCIO! Thanks to F. P. A of the New York Post for pointing out the funniest misprint of the last six years. It's from the World Tel egram, and reads: 'The Fuehrerwas to board the Strength Through Joy Steamer Robert Levy" The name of the boat was Robert Ley, and if any linotyper makes a a mistake in this piece we'll recommend him for a term in concentration camp. • Latest example of German Galgenhumor is: Ques tion: "What's the difference between Germany and Russia?" Answer: "It's colder in Russia. • Credit Ferenc Molnar. famous Hungarian Jewish playwright, with this crack: "In this world today there are two kinds of Europeans—Aryans, and those who are learning English" Just in case you missed it. we want to repeat the bon mot of Major Vernon Bart lett, British M. P. "We shall not be able to enjoy ourselves," said the major, 'until Franco's widow tells Stalin on his deathbed that Hitler has been assassinated at Hitler's funeral" • • MIAMI JEWISH ORTHODOX CONGREGATION 154o S.

PRICE FIVE CENTS
80,000 In Distress Result
of Foreign Anti-Semitism
New York, (WNS)More than'
SOO.OOO Jews are in distress in
Central Europe as the result <>f
the spread of anti-Semitism dur
ing recent months, it was report-
ed by Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver
and Rabbi Jonah B Wise, Nat
ional Chairmen of the United
Jewish Appeal fir Refugees and
Overseas Needs, who called for
immediate action on the part of
American Jewry to help alleviate
the suffering and homelessnesg "f
tens of thousands of men. women
and children added to the ranks
uf the refugees by the occupation
..f Czecho-Slovakia, the seizure <>f
Memel, the adoption of new anti-
Jewish legislation in Hungary, and
the pro.Vam of expulsion in Italy
against Jews who took up resi-
dence in that country after 1919.
By far the most tragic dement
among the Jews of Central Eu-
rope, the leaders of the United
Jewish Appeal pointed out, are
the refugees from Germany whose
path of flight preceded the East-
ward march of Nazi aggression,
being driven first from Germany
to Austria, then to Czecho-Slova-
kia and now finding all roads of
freedom barred Refugees in this
category number approximately
r,000 in Czecho-Slovakia; about
r.,000 in Italy- In a similar plight
are some 14.000 refugees from
Sudeterdand, victims of the first
dismemberment of Czechoslova-
kia.
The adoption of an economic and
professional numerous clauses
agailUt Jews in Hungary threat
ena to undermine the existence of
the 500,000 members of the Jew
ish community in that country.
Rabbi Silver and Rabbi Wise said.
explaining that the restriction
last May of Jewish participation
in commerce and the professions
to 20 per cent was tantamount to
the elimination of fiO.OOO from the
-elf-sustainir/g class- This situa-
tion may be seriously aggravated
f a new bill reducing Jewish eco-
nomic activity to <"< per cent be-
in-'s law. for it will mean the
impoverishment of an additional
230,000 Jews in Hungary.
Recent events in Central Eu-
rope have brought to 6,000,000 the
total Lumber of Jews in Central
and Eastern European countries
effected by anti-Semitic activities,
the leaders said.
Describing the situation in the
provinces of Bohemia, Moravia
and Slovakia which were annexed
by the Third Reich upon the de-
struction of the Czech Republic,!
'wish leaders stressed the fact
that Prague had been the center
of a flourishing Jewish community
ever since the tenth century. "In
contrast to their freedom of the
Past the 100,000 Jews in Bohemia j
and Moravia and the 95.000 in

Actions Committee
Meeting Postponed
London, i WNS Palcor Agency)
The session of the Zionist Ac-
tions Committee, originally sched-
uled to be held in Jerusalem to-
ward the end of this month, was
cancelled iiv view of the postpone-
ment by the British Government
statement on Palestine pol-
icy.
The postponement of the meet
ing is also known to have resulted
from the attitude of the American
Zionist leaders, who had strongly
urged that no meeting be held,
sine- nothing had occurred since
the conferences at St. .lames Pal-
ace to warrant a convocation of
Zionist leadership to formulate fu-
ture policies. It is planned, how-
ever, to hold several informative
conferences in Eastern and West-
ern Europe, with the participation
of members of the Zionist Execu-
tive, to clarify the Jewish attitude
toward "the British Government.
The departure of Malcolm Mac-
Donald. Colonial Secretary, for a
two-week holiday on the Continent,
seemed to confirm the general ini
pression that an announcement of
British policy in Palestine is not
imminent. It is believed that fur
ther steps will be taken before the
reassembling of Parliament. There
were some indications, however.
that a statement of policy might
be expected at the end of April.
The increased tension in the Eu-
ropean situation has been respon-
sible for British delay in taking
action on "Palestine.

Hungary Demands
Stringent Laws
Budapest, (WNS) Expressing
dissatisfaction with the Govern
ment'a anti-Jewish bill as not be-
ing sufficiently extreme, the new-
ly-reorganized pro-Nazi arrow
Cross Party introduced a severe
nrogram to exclude the Jews from
Hungary's economic, political and
social life- The program calls for
"Proclamation of the Jews as a
separate racial entity; prohibition
>f mixed marriages an'd legal
sanctions against co-habitation be-
tween Jews and non-Jews"; "De-
orival of Jews' political rights
service in the army"; "Measures
to eliminate Jews from the Hun-
garian state of labor." Parlia-
mentary elections at the end of
April gave impetus to the issu-
ance of instructions to the Govern-
ment party's electorial agents to
accept all as party members irres-
pective of former political affilia-
tion with the exception of Jews
Former Premier Bela Imrecly of
Hungary has accented an invita
tion to attend Hitler's birthday
celebration in Berlin on April 20.
Imredy, author of Hungary's dras-
ti anti-Jewish bill, resigned his
Premiership on February 15th last
when he learned that he was of
partly Jewish ancestry- He had
learned that his mother's grand
father was a Jew.
London, (WNS)Josef Beck,
Polish Foreign Minister, was as
sured by the British Government
that the question of emigration
and colonization facilities for
some 3,500,000 Polish Jews would
be examined. The British Foreign
Office issued a statement expres-
sed a willingness to discuss the
matter but did not commit tht
British Gogernment to include
Polish or Roumanian Jews in the
Evian Committee's colonizatiol
schemes. The statement follows:
"In the course of recent corner
sations in London Colonel Bee I-
expressed the desire that any in-
ternational effort for the treat
ment of Jewish problems should b'
extended to that of the Jews ir
Poland and that Jewish immi
grants throughout Poland should
have their share in any opportu
nity for settlement which may b(
four;,!. Colonel Beck at the sam-
time, at the request of the Ron
manian Government, drew atten-
tion to the similar problem of en-
listing Roumania. Colonel Beck
was assured that His Majesty's
Government fully appreciated the
difficulty to which he had refer-
red and was at any time ready to
examine with the Polish and Rou-
manian Governments proposals
for the solution of problems aris-
ing in Poland and Roumania which
are a part of the larger problem."
The implied recognition by the
British Government that Poland
may have a "surplus' 'Jewish pop-
ulation which should emigrate
aroused fears in Jewish circles
that the improved position of the
Jewish situation in Poland may be
impaired. It had been hoped that
closer Anglo-Polish relations would
serve to advanne the position of
Jews in Poland. Poland had de-
manded that territories like Brit-
ish Gu'ana, the Dominican Repub-
lic. Santo Domingo, the Philin-
niiv.'s and N trthern Rhodesia,
which now are being surveyed as
ossible refuges for Jews from
Germany, should he opened to
Polish* and Roumanian Jews as
well. The British, however, hesi-
tate to complicate an already in-
volved refugee problem from Ger-
many and until the colonization
schemes for German Jews are well
under way it is hoped here that
Poland will not attempt an anti-
Jewish policy along the lines of
the persecution in Germany-
Jewish circles feared that the
British Foreign Office statement
might be considered as recognition
by Britain that a separate Jewish
migration problem exists in Pol-
and exclusive of general emigra-
tion problems. It would appear,
therefore, that England is show-
ing a willingness to differentiate
between Jewish and non-Jewish
citizensa distinction which the
lews have always fought against.
%'
Lord \\ interton warned the
House of Commons that it was im-
possible for any of the thirty two
governments represented at the
Evian Conference to accept the
financial responsibility for trans-
fer and upkeep of the refugees
from Central Europe because all
the thirty-two governments are
"faced with difficult economic.
situation's. The last thing that
would induce the Reich Govern-
ment to he reasonable about the
amount of property that the Jews
would be allowed to take out of
Germany." Lord Winterton said,
"would be for the Evian Commit-
tee to assume financial responsi-
bility" At the same time he em
phasized the necessity for greater
cooperation by Germany be for,
any real problem could be worke
out-

Federation
The culmination of a dream will be realized, when on Sun-
day night, The Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare
Funds will hold their annual meeting. Dating- back to January
jf 1938, when the Jewish Floridian began an intense campaign
'o "Federaticnize" Miami, with a plea that Miami needed and
does need a Federation, that Federation was the solution to
Greater Miami's problem. that organized Federation was
the only way to avoid duplicity, to see that worthwhile and de-
serving organizations received the support they were entitled
to. that collection costs were minimized and did not absorb
in most cases the bulk of collections, that at last there would
oe but "One campaign a year to reach all Jews for all causes."
Despite numerous objections and obstacles that at times
seemed unsurmountable and disheartening to the small group,
was determined to put "Federation" to test.
Now that the first year of Federation is nearing an end,
and the first campaign sponsored by the Federation is officially
closed, we can readily see when we review what has transpired,
that Federation has truly fulfilled its promises and purposes
far beyond the hopes and expectations of the 'doubting
Thomases."
This year, for the first time, Miami has been free from a
multiplicity of annual drives for funds. ... for the first time
.... have collections costs been held to the unbelievable low
level of approximately seven percent and truly appreciable is
the fact that the list of contributors to Jewish causes were in-
creased bv fifty percent of previous years and the amount
raised $83,044.00, four times more than ever before raised in
the community. With the campaign closed but two months, the
thirty-five organizations affiliated, have already received fifty
percent of their allotment.
For the success Federation has realized, sufficient credit
and praise cannot be given to Stanley C. Myers and his co-
workers, who have truly lived "Federation" the past year.
Quoting from an editorial of last May written by the late
editor of the Jewish Floridian, J. Louis Shochet:
"We have faith in our people-------we have faith in the
Federation____let Miami Jewry have faith in one another,
and it will truly be the faith that will move mountains.
Truly Federation has moved mountains._________________

Footnotes to History
BY RABBI MORDECAI I. BRIL
In Tunisia and Morocco, which
are autonomous countries under
French protectorate, the Jews
maintain their own law courts
where civil suits .are judged by
tribunals of their own.
A 13th century Rabbi felt cal-
led upon to issue a vigorous ban
against those who studied relig-
ious philosophy and certain of the
natural sciences before they were
twenty-five years old. If a person
studied Jewish lore until that age,
it was felt, he could safely study
anything else after that without
having his beliefs undermined.
In the community constitution
drawn up by the Je of Cracow.
Poland in 1595. it is specifically
stated that one ir forbidden to go
Sholem Lodge held its regular
monthly business meeting Tuesday
evening in the Elk's Club rooms
and a splendid session' it was
with approximately 200 B'nai
B'rith members attending. It was
one of the most outstanding meet
ings ever held, according to com-
ments heard among a large num-
ber of Brothers.
The meeting featured the ini-
tiation into the Order of about
forty new membersthe names of
the candidates initiated being too
numerous to mention here. Par-
ticipating in the ritual were Broth
era Burnett Roth, Sam Seitlin.
Nat Roth. Dr. Frank Coret, State
Federation President; and Al Pal
lot, President of Sholem Lodge.
Congratulations to you, Brothers.
on the impressive reading of the
ritual. We trust that the ideals
expressed in the ritual will inspire
the new Brothers to work con-
scientiously and untiringly as good
B'nai B'rith.
In the wake of Nazi occupation of
Czecho-Slovakia, thousands of
new refugees fled to the borders
seeking some escape from the
Nuremberg racial laws of Germany. On the frontiers they found them-
selves in No Man's Land refused entry into new countries, and for-
bidden to return to the homes they had left behind. Scenes like these
are typical of the tragic plight of many homeless thousands, in whose
behalf the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees and Overseas Need"
is conducting an unprecedented campaign through union of the fund-
raising efforts of the Joint Distribution Committee, the United Palestine
Appeal, and the National Coordinating Committee Fund, Inc.
The Anti-Defamation Commit
tee report made by Brother Harry
Simonhoff, local chairman, and
Brother Abe Aronovitz. State
Chairman, was highly commend-
able The report was enlighten-
ing, especially to new and old
members who are not familiar with
the activities of that most impor-
tant committee. Furthermore, the
report was exhaustive and com-
prehensive enough for the purpose
of apprising the general mem
bership of the Ix>dge as to the
type of work that is beir^. V'"l
has been, done by the Chairman
and members of the committee.
There can be no over emphasis of
the fact that a Jewish citizen in-
dividually should never attempt
to constitute himself or herself as
authorized to speak or act for
through the streets at nights play-
ing on musical instruments, nor
shall any one, whether household
ers. young men. or boys, shout or
yell in the streets. If a person
does such things, or if a fight
breaks out at night, or if someone
attacks a citizen or injures his
home, the night-watch are requir-
ed to awaken one or two of the
officials who arc experted to get
up immediately and to admonish
the people to go home. If. how-
ever, they have beer.' very violent.
the officials have the authority
to put them under arrest t'll the
morning, when the chief officials
of the community will settle their
case.
Jewry as a wnoie in the solution
of.any problem which may arise-
Again, your write] urges that it
is your duty as a loyal Jew ami
good Ben B'rith to notify the
newly opened central office of
Sholem Lodge concerning any an-
ti-Semitic problem which may con-
front you! We assure you that
the matter will be in able and com-
petent hands and will most cer-
tainly be handled and dealt with
in a dignified, commendable and
satisfactory manner.
The Jewish communal authori-
ties of Metz, France (lf>90) for-
bade the wearing of red leather
shoes. Likewise velvet, fringed,
or stitched footwear was forbid-
den. Only black or white shoes
were acceptable. (We wonder:
did the shoe manufacturers pro-
test the ruling?)
"The salt of money is charity"
says the Talmud. In nrtnther pas-
sage the term "salted" is applied
to a man in the' sense of "qui k-
minded." In certain places in
Russia the belief was formerly
current among Jews that if salt
was thrown in a part of the house
where it is not likely to he swept
away, the inhabitants of that
house will become poor.
Congratulations are in order
for Brother Adelman. chairman of
the A. Z. A. Committee; Brother
Ben I" Vine. Treasurer; Brother
Elry Stone, chairman of the Amer-
icanization Committee, and Broth-
er Dr- Charles Werblow, co-chair-
man of Student Union Committee.
respectively, for their splendid re-
ports given at the meeting Tues-
day night. Brother Ben's report
on the condition of the Treasury
was a masterpiece, provoking con-
stant applause of the members
during the entire report. Brother
Ben collected about $200-00 in
dues during one intermission cal-
led. Great work without which
Sholem Lodge could not exist fi-
nancially.

FACTS AND FORECASTS
One reason why Britain is now
making efforts to stop Hitler is
that South Africa and the former j
German colonies in Africa are the ]
next step on the Nazi program. .
Imagine the chagrin of Gabby
Goebbels when, on berating Berlin
opera officials for not producing
more operas like "Burgschaft," his
favorite, he learned that the com-
poser of that opus is Kurt Weill.
refugee from Nazism, who has
been doing fine in the U S. .
German refugeesand especially
those with families still in Nazi-
landare warned to look out for
housemaids with German accents
in New York hotels- Some of
them are Nazi spies. Not until
early in 1940 will the world be rid
of Hitler, says the astrologer, who
some months ago predicted that
the Ides of March would be criti-
cal this year (remember Czechos
lovakia )" He adds that war
will break out any time between
now and May. 1040. and that the
result will be the end of the pres-
ent Italian and German regimes.
A Refugee Congregation has been
opened in the social hall of one
of New York's West Side syna-
gogues by Dr. Joachim Prinz. him
self a refugee who came here from
hia native Germany only a couple
of years ago. after a spell of Nazi
jails and concentration camps. .
WE WONDER
How come that New York's 86th
Street Casino, headquarters for
Nazi-made films, advertises in a
German refugee weekly? Are
you one of those dumb clucks who
sigh that if Hitler only weren't
anti-Semite our own Government
would d0 well to take lessons from
him ? Then consider that in
Naziland two thirds of the nation-
al income is used to carry out the
"political and social tasks" Adolf
has set himself. And of course
this money is collected by the
Nazi government in the form of
taxes. We wonder whether that
recording of the February Nazi
Bund rally in Madison Square
Garden which Hitler recently re-
ceived includes Dorothy Thomp-
son's laughter and the thuds of
the blows uniformed storm troop-
ers rained on the little Jew who
told Fritz Kuhn what he thought
of him. ... If Fritz Wiedmann,
Nazi Consul in San Francisco, is
wondering why he wasn't received
too cordially at the 20th-century
Fox movie lot recently, we'll tell
him that the chief guide there.
Captain J. A. Strasser, is a broth-
er of Gregor Strasser, a victim
of the Nazi blood purge some
years ago- .
AXIS AXIOMS
In view of the seizure of Alba-
nia by the Rome-Berlin axis pow-
ersimpending at the time of
writing, and probably accomplish-
ed long before this reaches you
we offer the following chorus for
a famous British anthem:
"Rule, Britania! Britannia
waives the rules!
Britons! Neville, Neville, Ne-
ville thinks you're fools'"
Credit for the first line goes, of
course, to the I. L- G. W. U. revue.
"Pins and Needles" What we
mean is. Chamberlain knew what
he was doing when he shouted so
loudly about Poland, the non-Ger-
man parts of which Hitler doesn't
want at present, while Adolf and
Benito prepared to annex the little
kingdom of Albania, which gives
them the firmest foothold anybody
could desire in the Balkans. All
of which reminds us that Winchell
has revealed that Chamberlain is
one of the largest stockholders in
the German dye trust. No won-
der he didn't want Hitler to get
mad at him. Probably this is
why the Hollywood studios have
requested their stars to keep out
of Europe for the time being, but
have specified that England is
safe for a vacation abroad.
RIDE, PAGLIACCIO!
Thanks to F. P. A of the New
York Post for pointing out the
funniest misprint of the last six
years. It's from the World Tel
egram, and reads: 'The Fuehrer-
was to board the Strength Through
Joy Steamer Robert Levy"
The name of the boat was Robert
Ley, and if any linotyper makes a
a mistake in this piece we'll rec-
ommend him for a term in concen-
tration camp. Latest example
of German Galgenhumor is: Ques
tion: "What's the difference be-
tween Germany and Russia?" .
Answer: "It's colder in Russia. -
Credit Ferenc Molnar. famous
Hungarian Jewish playwright,
with this crack: "In this world to-
day there are two kinds of Europ-
eansAryans, and those who are
learning English" Just in case
you missed it. we want to repeat
the bon mot of Major Vernon Bart
lett, British M. P- "We shall
not be able to enjoy ourselves,"
said the major, 'until Franco's
widow tells Stalin on his deathbed
that Hitler has been assassinated
at Hitler's funeral"

The Zionist labor group, con-
sisting of the Peale Zion and its
affiliates, may leave the American
Jewish Congress and join the "La-
bor Committee" formerly headed
by the late B. C. Vladeck, and now
led by Adolph Held, and which
then will include practically all
the Jewish labor groups except
those of the extreme Left- The
Zionist Bureau in Washington is
oerforming a great service these
days Credit belongs to Dr.
Solomon Goldman, who established
it. So far as we know, Bennett
Silverblatt of Lowell, Mass., has
the distinction of being the only
American Jew to have had an au-
dience with Pope Pius XII.
The audience took place in 1927.
when Silverblatt visited Rome and
the new Pope was an influential
member of the Vatican family. .
ABOUT PEOPLE
Dr- Israel Goldstein's radio
speech on the Jewish Palestine Pa-

one of the best radio personalities
of the day. Dr. Emil Edward
Cohen, one of the founders of the
Zionist movement in Germany, is
now in New York, and expects to
have his biography of Zionist
leader David Wolfsohn published
soon- Dr. Cohen's daughter is
married to a nephew of Paul Baer-
wald. Which reminds us to tell
you that Mr. Baerwald's new son-
in-law is Dr. Henri Doubilet, for-
merly of Montreal and now of New
York. Elliot Elisofon, crack
photographer of New York, believ-
es his art should be practiced with

so is exhibiting pictures of slum

HABANOTH HAPPENINGS
The Habanoth Debs in line with
their wide cultural program spent
a most enjoyable Yom Tov at the
home of the Rabbi and Ri-bbetzin
on Achronshel Pesach. A cursary
review of the past holiday and its
significance to each of the Senior
group was held and their ability
in the practice of the culinary arts
was demonstrated as the girls
themselves prepared a Passover
delicacy. The proposed Passover
outing to be held by the Habanoth
Buds and the intermediate group,
the girls of the Blue and White,
was postponed due to the unex-

BRIGHT SPOT- on the glob
this week is Lagos, Nigeria. .
where the West African Pilot, a
Native owned newspaper declared
in an editorial condemning at
tempts to Introduce anti-Semitism
there: "We want no Jew-baiting
around here Nigeria cannot af-
ford to be anti-Semitic. Any fire-
I rand, who by his words or deeds
encourages anti-Semitism should
be ostracized and given his due.
Jew baiters should find Nigeria to
be a hot spot for them" .
100 JEWISH CHILDREN .
were assured a "jubilant Passover"
when the efforts of Hadassah
made possible their transfer from
10 European countries to Pales-
tine in time for the Passover ser-
vices, thus liberating them from
persecution, on the holiday which
commemorates release from simi-
lar persecutions centuries ago-
There are now a total of more

SOCIETY
A I ETTER FROM HONOLULU
.to the Union of American He-
brew Congregations' Educational
Department revealed the perplex
ity of a Jewish family with a sev-
en year-old daughter. It seems
that nW, with the.child growing
up. they are suddenly more and
more aware of the need to organ-
ize a school for the children, and
ask the aid of U. A. H. C, in sup-
olying literature which they may
use to train young men and wo-
men to teach. curriculum for
a Jewish Religious School, a cat-
alog of books, and suggestions for
teaching and reading Hebrew and
for training in Jewish arts am
crafts, were sent to Honolulu this
week. .
