Do 'Continued on Page Four) Washington, (WNS) The Joint Congressional Immigration sub1 committee listened to appeals from church and government leaders in support of the WagnerRogers bill introduced by Senator Robef F. Wagner of New YorkThe bill would admit 20,000 German refugee children to the United States in the next two years. I Supporting the bill were former Governor Philip I-aFolIctte of ( Wisconsin, D. Robert Yarnall, of Philadelphia, of the Friends Ser-1 vice Commission for the Relief of German and Austrian children, Newbold Morris. President of the Council of the City of New York. R esentative Edith Nourse Rogers of Massachusetts, the Rev, Dr. Maurice Sheehy, head of the D partment of Religious Education of the Catholic University. and Katherine Lenroot, chief of •he Women's BureauMr LaFollette, who recently returned from Germany, described the "lifcting and terrifying shock on the people of Germany" by anti-Jewish riots which started last November after a minor official of the German Embassy in | Paris had been shot by a young | Polish. Tew. He said that it was, a mistake to regard the situation as onpressive merely to Catholics and Jews since "it is difficult to exaggerate the extent to which •he German population is living in terror." Mr. LaFollette told the committee that "if a secret, free and untrammeled vote were held in Germany, 75 percent of the people would vote against the present regimeMr. Yarnall told of the shame expressed by Germans of his acquaintance at the excesses and violence visited on Jews in Germany. Newbold Morris explained to the committee that the Government would be put to no expense if the children were admitted, since a revolving fund of $260,000 has already been raised, with more to come, to take care of the children. Representative Edith Nourse Rogers predicted that many of • he children would go back to Germany, since "I do nofeel that Hitler will always be at the head of the German government-" The Rev. Dr. Maurice Sheehy told the committee that failure to pass the Wagner resolution would be interpreted as a "friendly act" by the present German government and an expression of American listlessneas in the face of persecution. Helen Hayes, stage and screen star, appeared before the joint Congressional commutes on immigration to plea for the admission of 20.000 German refugee children into the United States under the terms of the Wagner-Rogers bill. "Over in Europe there are children being shunted back and forth i over alien borders with only fear to look forward to and no place to call home. To whom can these refugee children turn?" Mia Haves introduced herself as "an American mother who has borne children and taken into her home the children of others Senator Robert F Wagner called the resolution "America's response to the call of humanity." He said that "the admission of this limited number of children— an utterly insignificant proportion of our total population —could be accomplished without any danger of dislocating American industry or displacing American labor." Support of the Wagner-Rogers bill was announced by Senator Arthur Capper of Kansas in a radio address made public here. Capper is a member of a threeman Senate immigration sub-committee holding hearings on the bill introduced by Senator Robert F. Wagner of New York. Other members are Senators William H. Smathers, New Jersey and William H. King. Utah. Among other supporters of the bill are Herbert Hoover, William Greene. President of the American Federation of Labor, Dorothy Thompson and Dr. Dudley D. Carroll of the North Carolina School of Commerce. Mr, Hoover's com( munieation to the committee said: "No harm and only good can come to a nation by such humane ac-1 tion." In behalf of the bill Miss Thompson said the scientists in' America were concerned with the falling birth rate and that an influx of picked refugees would infuse vital, new blood into the nation. She confirmed assertions of Paul Beisser, of Baltimore, head of the Child Welfare League of America that there were "thousands" who wanted to take children. Members of the Committee were surprised when Dr. Carroll said that the South could, and would if permitted, absorb the entire number of 20,000 children. "As a Southerner," he said. "I am impressed with the fact that the South has never been exposed to the tide of immigration. That has been an element making for stagnation I am worried." he said, "that we may not get our share." Canon Anson Phelps Stokes of the Washington Episcopal Cathedral declared that he was sure the program of the refugees committee was sound and based this statement on his experience in aiding Russian refugees after the World War. "If it held any dancer to American labor." he said. "vou would not find the American Federation of Labor and the Con gress of Industrial Organizations endorsing it." New York. .WNS)—The personnel of a sponsoring committee for the Wagner-Rogers bill to admit 20.000 German refugee children under fourteen years of age during 19.19 and 1940 was made public by the Non-Sectarian Committee for German Refugee Children. Among the snonsors were former Governor Alfred M. Landon of Kansas; Col. Frank Knox. of Chicago; Dr. Robert M. Hutchins, president of 'he University of Chicago; Dr. Ray Lyman Wilbur, president of Stanford University; George Rublee, former director of the Intergovernmental Refugee Committee; Marshall Field and Governor Luren Dickinson of Michigan. Jerusalem. (WNS Palcor Agency)—That the delayed announcement of the Government policy f ir Palestine would precipitate action to replace the verbal duel of the London conferences was the warning uttered ly David ben Gurion. chairman of the Jewish Agency Executive, who at the same time warned the Jews against any delusion that the postponement of the announcement meant that the policy had been altered "A new phase in our relationship with Great Britain has begun. This means that Great Britain will no longer have the last word." Mr. Ben Gurion told the members of the Smaller Actions Committee of -be World Zionist Organization. comnnsed of members resident in Palestine, at a meeting here this week. Attended by many Jews of the Diaspora, the meeting was opened by Dr. Chnim Weizmann, President of the W. Z. O.. who spoke briefly, pointing out that the sirnation confronting the Jews of Palestine had in no way changed sin"e the London Conference. "We shall continue our upbuild ing with greater determination." he declared. "Undaunted and with all our world's forces we shall emerge from this political struggle triumphantly. Despite al' difficulties we shall continue; and with the application of our entire forces, our emergence from the present stress is cetain. M. Ben Gurion dwelt on the political situation in London, and emphasized the enormous significance of the unity achieved with the Agudath Israel and others, notably the British non-Zionists. "The failure of the Government's attempt to subjugate the lewish delegation revealed the firmness of the Jewish people," he asserted. "While our resistence to the British policy will be uncomprisine and while we shall make every %  •ffort to frustrate it. this does "ot betoken war against Great Britain. The entire Government ->nposition is antagonistic toward the new policy, as well as many within the Government itself. Our unyielding will frustrate the designs against us.

The meeting is being sponsored France Outlaws AntiSemitic Propaganda Paris, (WNS)—A new decree, prohibiting anti-Semitic propaganda, made public in the official gazette, makes such utterances punishable by prison terms of five days to six months plus fines up to 10.000 francs. Violation of the new decree provides for imposing penalties classified in five groups, depending upon whether the offense is against a group or individual, publicly or privately. The new decree supplements the press law of July 29, 1881. directed toward "suppression of defamation or insults whether against groups or individuals of certain origin, race or religion, should they aim to provoke hatred among citizens or inhabitants." The decree, as published in the Gazette, indicates thai anti-Semitic propaganda is held detrimental to France's defense Premier Edouard Daladier. Coordination Minister Camille Chautemps. Justice Minister Paul Marchandeau. author of the decree. Interior Minister Albert Sirraut and Colonial Minister Georges Mandel. issued a statement jointly which declared that "there is no danger of the decree being aonlied to other aims than intended Thus, freedom of the press, wi'l not be affected." This stater-'"t was meant to soften onpos : : ->n which had insisted that the deere restricted freedom of the press. The decree gave courts the power to deprive of citizenship rights for five to ten years persons found guilty of violating the law. Paris. (WNS)—Following the approval of a decree by the Cabinet, directed toward disbanding nronaganda associations whi-h function in France on funds received from abroad, the French Government ordered three organizations in Alsace-Lorraine, to eeae nropagnnda activities and disband. They were the Young Men's Group, led by a Prussianborn autonomv leader, Hermann Bickler; the Erwin von Steinhach Hub and the Alsatian People's Intellectual and Cultural Union. Other decrees voted last week •ailed for prosecution of Persons •>r croups fomenting hatred or discord among French citizens on %  acial or religious grounds.

Six Mcnths $2.00 $1.00 FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 1939 VOLUME 12—NUMBER 17 ENGLAND'S PLAN The British Government has definitely decided to take tic action and impose its own plan in Palestine. On balance, the Jews will be the losers and the Arabs the winners. In a day when Jews require a place of refuge, it is impossible for them to consent to a scheme as proposed by Great Britain, which would heavily restrict immigration to Palestine. F'.vthermore, it is obvious why they could not consent to a plan wheh would aid to make the ruling element in Palestine forever an Arab majority. But there is a definite world political reason for Great Britain's decision to enforce its own plans. The Arabs are subject to insidious propaganda from Italy. It would suit the purposes of the two dictators in case they had a conflict with France and England to set the Arab world aflame. Great Britain feels that no matter how deeply grieved and disheartened the Jews may be over the decision, they will be constrained to remain friendly to a great democracy. It is deplorable that Britain through its policy of appeasement, not oi !v to the dictators but to the Arabs, now finds it expedient hut the doors of Palestine—the one hope of refuge in a closed world.

The abuse came about through the elimination of the social room as per request of the Federation This was sanctioned by the majority of members with most of the majority absenting themselves from future "Y" meetings.

Safety from skidding, with its horrible j death toll each year, is provided in { the design of the -.read and the, I depth to which that design exI tends.

'Continued on Page Four)
Washington, (WNS) The Joint
Congressional Immigration sub-1
committee listened to appeals
from church and government lead-
ers in support of the Wagner-
Rogers bill introduced by Senator
Robef F. Wagner of New York-
The bill would admit 20,000 Ger-
man refugee children to the Unit-
ed States in the next two years. I
Supporting the bill were former
Governor Philip I-aFolIctte of(
Wisconsin, D. Robert Yarnall, of
Philadelphia, of the Friends Ser-1
vice Commission for the Relief of
German and Austrian children,
Newbold Morris. President of the
Council of the City of New York.
R esentative Edith Nourse Rog-
ers of Massachusetts, the Rev,
Dr. Maurice Sheehy, head of the
D partment of Religious Educa-
tion of the Catholic University.
and Katherine Lenroot, chief of
he Women's Bureau-
Mr LaFollette, who recently re-
turned from Germany, described
the "lifcting and terrifying shock
on the people of Germany" by
anti-Jewish riots which started
last November after a minor offi-
cial of the German Embassy in |
Paris had been shot by a young |
Polish.Tew. He said that it was,
a mistake to regard the situation
as onpressive merely to Catholics
and Jews since "it is difficult to
exaggerate the extent to which
he German population is living in
terror." Mr. LaFollette told the
committee that "if a secret, free
and untrammeled vote were held
in Germany, 75 percent of the peo-
ple would vote against the present
regime-
Mr. Yarnall told of the shame
expressed by Germans of his ac-
quaintance at the excesses and
violence visited on Jews in Ger-
many. Newbold Morris explained
to the committee that the Govern-
ment would be put to no expense
if the children were admitted,
since a revolving fund of $260,000
has already been raised, with more
to come, to take care of the chil-
dren. Representative Edith Nourse
Rogers predicted that many of
he children would go back to
Germany, since "I do no- feel that
Hitler will always be at the head
of the German government-" The
Rev. Dr. Maurice Sheehy told the
committee that failure to pass the
Wagner resolution would be in-
terpreted as a "friendly act" by
the present German government
and an expression of American
listlessneas in the face of perse-
cution.
Helen Hayes, stage and screen
star, appeared before the joint
Congressional commutes on immi-
gration to plea for the admission
of 20.000 German refugee children
into the United States under the
terms of the Wagner-Rogers bill.
"Over in Europe there are chil-
dren being shunted back and forth i
over alien borders with only fear
to look forward to and no place
to call home. To whom can these
refugee children turn?" Mia
Haves introduced herself as "an
American mother who has borne
children and taken into her home
the children of others "
Senator Robert F Wagner cal-
led the resolution "America's re-
sponse to the call of humanity."
He said that "the admission of
this limited number of children
an utterly insignificant proportion
of our total populationcould be
accomplished without any danger
of dislocating American industry
or displacing American labor."
Support of the Wagner-Rogers
bill was announced by Senator
Arthur Capper of Kansas in a
radio address made public here.
Capper is a member of a three-
man Senate immigration sub-com-
mittee holding hearings on the bill
introduced by Senator Robert F.
Wagner of New York. Other
members are Senators William H.
Smathers, New Jersey and Wil-
liam H. King. Utah.
Among other supporters of the
bill are Herbert Hoover, William
Greene. President of the American
Federation of Labor, Dorothy
Thompson and Dr. Dudley D. Car-
roll of the North Carolina School
of Commerce. Mr, Hoover's com- (
munieation to the committee said:
"No harm and only good can come
to a nation by such humane ac-1
tion." In behalf of the bill Miss
Thompson said the scientists in'
America were concerned with the
falling birth rate and that an in-
flux of picked refugees would in-
fuse vital, new blood into the na-
tion. She confirmed assertions of
Paul Beisser, of Baltimore, head
of the Child Welfare League of
America that there were "thous-
ands" who wanted to take children.
Members of the Committee were
surprised when Dr. Carroll said
that the South could, and would
if permitted, absorb the entire
number of 20,000 children. "As a
Southerner," he said. "I am im-
pressed with the fact that the
South has never been exposed to
the tide of immigration. That
has been an element making for
stagnation I am worried." he
said, "that we may not get our
share."
Canon Anson Phelps Stokes of
the Washington Episcopal Cathe-
dral declared that he was sure the
program of the refugees commit-
tee was sound and based this
statement on his experience in aid-
ing Russian refugees after the
World War. "If it held any dan-
cer to American labor." he said.
"vou would not find the American
Federation of Labor and the Con
gress of Industrial Organizations
endorsing it."
New York. .WNS)The person-
nel of a sponsoring committee for
the Wagner-Rogers bill to admit
20.000 German refugee children
under fourteen years of age during
19.19 and 1940 was made public by
the Non-Sectarian Committee for
German Refugee Children. Among
the snonsors were former Gover-
nor Alfred M. Landon of Kansas;
Col. Frank Knox. of Chicago; Dr.
Robert M. Hutchins, president of
'he University of Chicago; Dr.
Ray Lyman Wilbur, president of
Stanford University; George Rub-
lee, former director of the Inter-

Marshall Field and Governor Lu-
ren Dickinson of Michigan.

cy)That the delayed announce-
ment of the Government policy
f ir Palestine would precipitate ac-
tion to replace the verbal duel of
the London conferences was the
warning uttered ly David ben Gu-
rion. chairman of the Jewish Agen-
cy Executive, who at the same
time warned the Jews against any
delusion that the postponement of
the announcement meant that the
policy had been altered

ship with Great Britain has begun.
This means that Great Britain will

comnnsed of members resident in
Palestine, at a meeting here this
week.
Attended by many Jews of the
Diaspora, the meeting was opened
by Dr. Chnim Weizmann, Presi-
dent of the W. Z. O.. who spoke
briefly, pointing out that the sir-
nation confronting the Jews of
Palestine had in no way changed
sin"e the London Conference.
"We shall continue our upbuild
ing with greater determination."
he declared. "Undaunted and with
all our world's forces we
shall emerge from this political
struggle triumphantly. Despite
al' difficulties we shall continue;
and with the application of our
entire forces, our emergence from
the present stress is cetain.
M. Ben Gurion dwelt on the po-
litical situation in London, and
emphasized the enormous signifi-
cance of the unity achieved with
the Agudath Israel and others,
notably the British non-Zionists.
"The failure of the Govern-
ment's attempt to subjugate the
lewish delegation revealed the
firmness of the Jewish people," he
asserted.
"While our resistence to the
British policy will be uncompris-
ine and while we shall make every
ffort to frustrate it. this does
"ot betoken war against Great
Britain. The entire Government
->nposition is antagonistic toward
the new policy, as well as many
within the Government itself. Our
unyielding will frustrate the de-
signs against us. The Yishuv and
Zionism are entering an emergen
i-v period that will renuire rein-
forced units- and discipline among
the Yishuv,"

France Outlaws Anti-
Semitic Propaganda
Paris, (WNS)A new decree,
prohibiting anti-Semitic propagan-
da, made public in the official ga-
zette, makes such utterances pun-
ishable by prison terms of five
days to six months plus fines up
to 10.000 francs. Violation of the
new decree provides for imposing
penalties classified in five groups,
depending upon whether the of-
fense is against a group or indi-
vidual, publicly or privately. The
new decree supplements the press
law of July 29, 1881. directed to-
ward "suppression of defamation
or insults whether against groups
or individuals of certain origin,
race or religion, should they aim
to provoke hatred among citizens
or inhabitants." The decree, as
published in the Gazette, indicates

The decree gave courts the power
to deprive of citizenship rights for
five to ten years persons found
guilty of violating the law.

ENGLAND'S PLAN
The British Government has definitely decided to take
tic action and impose its own plan in Palestine. On bal-
ance, the Jews will be the losers and the Arabs the winners.
In a day when Jews require a place of refuge, it is impos-
sible for them to consent to a scheme as proposed by Great
Britain, which would heavily restrict immigration to Palestine.
F'.vthermore, it is obvious why they could not consent to a
plan wheh would aid to make the ruling element in Palestine
forever an Arab majority.
But there is a definite world political reason for Great
Britain's decision to enforce its own plans. The Arabs are
subject to insidious propaganda from Italy. It would suit the
purposes of the two dictators in case they had a conflict with
France and England to set the Arab world aflame.
Great Britain feels that no matter how deeply grieved and
disheartened the Jews may be over the decision, they will be
constrained to remain friendly to a great democracy. It is de-
plorable that Britain through its policy of appeasement, not
oi !v to the dictators but to the Arabs, now finds it expedient
hut the doors of Palestinethe one hope of refuge in a
closed world.

The present administration J>as
taken more abuse than any prev-

if not more constructive work for
the organization during their term

through the elimination of the so-

POLITICAL BRIEFS
GEORGE E. McCASKILL is the
one attorney in the commission
race- He was active in the legal
fight for the recall of the last
commission majority and almost
won a place on the commission for
himself at the recall election of
March 1st-
He is a graduate of I>ouisiana
Polytechnic Institute and the
Stetson University Law School of
DeLand, Florida. He started the
practice of law in Miami in 1912,
was a Dade county commissioner
for five years from 1917 and Mi-
ami Beach city attorney for six
years through 1928.
McCaskill believes in "a city
manager in fact" and expresses
opposition to city commission re-
flee. He believes in charter chang-
es to strengthen the recall pro-
visions so "that it will not be so
difficult to recall city commis-
sioners. He bases his position on
obstacles placed in the recall path
by the former commission ma-
jority.

VISITS IN
MIAMI
Mrs. Robrt H. Rosenthal of
Omaha. Nebraska, is visiting in
Miami with her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. William Clein. of this city.
Mrs. Rosenthal was the former
Miss Mildred Clein.
The Trutred Tire Company at
1495 N. W. Seventh Avenue, has
been operating in Miami only one
year.
The new owner, Thomas F.
Brown, who bought the firm a
year ago, has spent the major part
of his business life as a success-
full distributor for one of the big
national tire concerns. Mr. Brown
tells you something about his re-
capping process:
"In the first place." said Mr.
Brown, "let me say that there are
two vital factors of safety built
into every good new tire. Safety
from skidding, with its horrible j
death toll each year, is provided in {
the design of the -.read and the, I
depth to which that design ex- I
tends. The finest tire made be-
comes, the moment its tread wears
smooth, a potential killer. On
rainy days death is the imminent
guest in every car rolling cm
smooth tires. Recaps. retreads
and even re-cut treads are all far
safer than smooth tires, as far BS
tires with a high degree of
|
neering skill in the better factor-
ies. The rubber and cord from the
tread to the bead is of
ing thickness. Over .
lessens its resiliency and -
against blowouts. 1; ,|p.;n(,
thoroughly cures the new |
ber skid-proof tread but
both the exterior and inte
the sidewalls exposed to
throughout the proce
maintaining their safetj from
blowouts"
