The meeting is called for the
purpose of voicing America.:
Jewry's protest agaiivst Great
Britain's repudiation of the Bal-
four Declaration and Mandat"
concerning the maintenance of
Palestine as a national Jewish
homeland. Next week there Vill
be debates in the English Parlia-
ment on the question of whether
or not the Jews in Palestine shall
be reduced to a minority Status.
This is probably the greatest
crisis that has ever faced the
Jewish people in the defense of
Jewish rights in Palestine.
A speaking program has been
arranged, and will include an out-
standing local Christian minister,
and a non-Jewish layman, who
will join with the liberal forces in
expressing opposition to Britain r
change of policy nullifying its
trust imposed by the Balfo n
Declaration ami Mandate There
will also be a musical program.
All local Jewish organizations
will cooperate in this emergency,
and a large attendance is ex] P<"

REPUDIATION OF BALFOUR DECLARA-
TION AROUSES INTERNATIONAL
SENTIMENT
Extraordinary preparations were made throughout Pales-
tine in anticipation of the publication of the White Paper pub-
lished Wednesday in which was announced the future policy
of Great Britain in Palestine-
The British government in a historic pronouncement of
policy Wednesday night outlined plans for turning strifetorn
Palestine over to its Arab majority, stinging Jewish leaders
into bitter declarations of opposition.
A white paper setting forth Britain's "final plan'' indi-
cated Britain was disclaiming five years hence any "obliga-
tion to facilitate the further development of the Jewish nation-
al home (in Palestine) by immigration."
Unable to obtain agreement between Arabs and Jews,
Britain announced its own solution for the political, future of
the Holy Land, wracked by virtual civil war for three years.
Jews will be limited to one-
third of the population of the
country which Britain wrested
from Turkey during the World
War and now controls under
League of Nations mandatee.
The proposal for establishment
of an independent Arab state,
the white paper said, "would in-
volve consultation with the coun-
cil of the League of Nations with
a view to termination of the
mandate"

STATEMENT OF
SIDNEY L. SEGALL
President of the Zionist
District
The imminent repudiation of
the Baufour Declaration and the
violation of the Mandate on the
part of Great Britain is an ar-
bitrary betrayal of a solemn? in-
ternational trust accepted by Bri-
tain unequivocally. Obviously it
is the unwarranted extension of
the Chamberlain Government's
stupid appeasement policy in the
direction of the totalitarian pow-
ers.
Britain's change of heart is
evidence of cowardice. In- direct
contrast, as a challenge to the
lethargy and indifference on the
part of American Jewry it should
provoke and stimulate the fight-
ing spirit and courage in the
hearts of all American Jews,

All Jewish organizations of
Eretz Israel have met in a con-
tinual series of conferences to
determine on measures to be pur-
sued in a conceited attempt to
frustrate the new policy after the
appearanve of the white paper.
The entire group of Labor or-

youths, students and leaders met
subsequently. The latter groups
have moved a joint resolution

VOLUME 12.NUMBER 19.
CARRY ON!
There resounds throughout the nation a vast wave of pro-
test following the issuing of Great Britain's long-awaited
"White Paper" "on its future policy for Palestine.
While the news came as a shock to everyone our fears
were not unfounded. Dr Bernard Revel, president of the
Yeshiva College assailed Great Britain and declared "that we
stand aghast, humiliated and helpless witnesses of a pending
betiayal by those in whom we placed our faith."
We find that Britain has completely ignored every phase
of decency, fair-play and justice; that it has completely repu-
diated the Balfour Declaration, and five years from now will
wash its hands of the obligation it ever had to Jewry.
Mass protest meetings are being called to once again
awaken our people to the fact that their task has just begun.
They must raise their voice against such actions that have
bee.i taken, for as England has changed her policies in the
past, there is still a little hope that she may do the same re-
garding the Jewish situation in Palestine, because the English
statesmen coping with these affairs fully realize the important
role the Jews are playing in the development of that country.
Although things may have a gloomy outlook for the Jewish
people at present, despite all adverse conditions, we must not
loss hope, but as true Jewsfight back and bravely carry on!

HADASSAH
THE HEALING OF THE
DAUGHTER OF MY PEOPLE
By Frieda Lutsk v
Under the aegis of the Hebrew
University, on the crest of Mt.
Scopus stands the Rothschild
Hadassah University Hospital;
the genesis of a great idea, en-
visioned by that noble woman.
Henrietta Szold. "A woman
great,among all women" who,
on a dark horizon, made visible
the dawn of a better day.
Through her remarkable abil-
ity, and practical idealism was
conceived and developedHadas-
sah, the greatest Jewish woman's
organisation in the world- On
Purim day, in the year of 1912.
in the basement of the old Tem-
ple Emanuel in New York City,
Henrietta Szold met, and inspir-
ed a group of young women, with
the desire to crystallize their en-
ergies for a groat historic move-
ment. A movement age-old, and
prophetic"the rebuilding of a
Jewish Homeland."
With far reaching foresight
her vigorous mind lead, and gal-
vanized the actions of these wo-
men, and thousands more, who
answered the inspired call. A
call, to build and serve through
a traditional channel, of health
service, for the people in Pales-
tine. A continuation of the spir-
il of the first JewAbraham.
The soirit of healing the si. k,
regardless of race or creed. "Aru-
i hat Rat Ami" -the healing of
the Daughter of my People"be-
came the slogan of Hadassah's
health program in Palestine. A
program that promoted the most
vital and fundamental necessity
of all mankind"good health"
through its system of curative
ami preventative medicine, health
education and medical research.
The designs for Hadassah's
health program was by far ahead
of the standards of this swampy,
scabrous, disease infested land,
which was almost primitive in its
neglect Rut with her pioneering
vision,) her undaunted persever-
ance, this insnired woman, this
leaders of leaders, conquered \n-
tturmountable obstacles in the up-
hill flarhl waged against elements
d soil; and deeply rooted sup-
erstitions. Prejudice and Ignor-
ance became dissipated in hejr
wake.
After twenty-seven years'* of
selfless, tirel'ss intellectual striv-
ing, her noble sacrifices 01 the
of service for her peonle,
terminated into a reality For
on Mt. Scoous stands the
immation of her fondest
,.,.,,,' Brought to fruitition by
her self, and the inspiration she
pave to the people the world over.
How fitting that in Jerusalem.
v which holds the soul of
h tradition, and on Mt. Soo-
the hill rich with memories
... nnee stood Alexander the
. and basked in the won-
beauty of Judea; and Ti-
tus, whose soldiers tossed the
Bnd which centuries ago
emanated destruction, shall
ind today in preeminence Ha-
,h's wonderful edifice of
,-v\-e.
Tn a turbulent world, pregnant
with sorrow and hate, may this
"crowning achievement" stand,
not only as a symbol of our be-
the permanence of Pales-
tine, but as a torch of light and
learning, healing and research
for all humanity.

"A woman great,—among all women" who, on a dark horizon, made visible the dawn of a better day. Through her remarkable ability, and practical idealism was conceived and developed—Hadassah, the greatest Jewish woman's organisation in the worldOn Purim day, in the year of 1912. in the basement of the old Temple Emanuel in New York City, Henrietta Szold met, and inspired a group of young women, with the desire to crystallize their energies for a groat historic movement. A movement age-old, and prophetic — "the rebuilding of a Jewish Homeland." With far reaching foresight her vigorous mind lead, and galvanized the actions of these women, and thousands more, who answered the inspired call. A call, to build and serve through a traditional channel, of health service, for the people in Palestine. A continuation of the spiril of the first Jew—Abraham. The soirit of healing the si. k, regardless of race or creed. "Arui hat Rat Ami" -the healing of the Daughter of my People"—became the slogan of Hadassah's health program in Palestine. A program that promoted the most vital and fundamental necessity of all mankind—"good health"— through its system of curative ami preventative medicine, health education and medical research. The designs for Hadassah's health program was by far ahead of the standards of this swampy, scabrous, disease infested land, which was almost primitive in its neglect Rut with her pioneering vision,) her undaunted perseverance, this insnired woman, this leaders of leaders, conquered \ntturmountable obstacles in the uphill flarhl waged against elements % %  • d soil; and deeply rooted superstitions.

Of this number a total of 8.022 Jewish immigrant entered Palestine since January 1st. 1939, Rabbi Silver said A mass meeting under the joint sponsorship of the Zionist District of Greater Miami and the Senior Hadassah and Junior I la das.ah organizations of Greater Miami, will be held Monday evening at 8:16 o'clock at Temple Israel. The meeting is called for the purpose of voicing America.: Jewry's protest agaiivst Great Britain's repudiation of the Balfour Declaration and Mandat" concerning the maintenance of Palestine as a national Jewish homeland. Next week there Vill be debates in the English Parliament on the question of whether or not the Jews in Palestine shall be reduced to a minority Status. This is probably the greatest crisis that has ever faced the Jewish people in the defense of Jewish rights in Palestine. A speaking program has been arranged, and will include an outstanding local Christian minister, and a non-Jewish layman, who will join with the liberal forces in expressing opposition to Britain r change of policy nullifying its trust imposed by the Balfo n Declaration ami Mandate There will also be a musical program. All local Jewish organizations will cooperate in this emergency, and a large attendance is ex] P<" ed at this mass meeting. REPUDIATION OF BALFOUR DECLARATION AROUSES INTERNATIONAL SENTIMENT Extraordinary preparations were made throughout Palestine in anticipation of the publication of the White Paper published Wednesday in which was announced the future policy of Great Britain in PalestineThe British government in a historic pronouncement of policy Wednesday night outlined plans for turning strifetorn Palestine over to its Arab majority, stinging Jewish leaders into bitter declarations of opposition. A white paper setting forth Britain's "final plan'' indicated Britain was disclaiming five years hence any "obligation to facilitate the further development of the Jewish national home (in Palestine) by immigration." Unable to obtain agreement between Arabs and Jews, Britain announced its own solution for the political, future of the Holy Land, wracked by virtual civil war for three years. Jews will be limited to one— third of the population of the country which Britain wrested from Turkey during the World War and now controls under League of Nations mandatee. The proposal for establishment of an independent Arab state, the white paper said, "would involve consultation with the council of the League of Nations with a view to termination of the mandate" BROWN BOMBERS >•••••** • • that Nazis have set off as bombs in film houses ig anti-Nazi pictures perN e w York's Prosecutor few;, will do something about 'hat report, which he's had for months, concerning the smuggling of Mich bombs and other weap "its into this city by Nazis. • • Rut how come that the setting f tear gas bombs in the Strand Theatre during a showing of "Confessions of a Nazi Spy," resulting in injuries to scores of People in the audience wasn't sported in the daily press? • The success of "Confessions of a Nt i Spy," nothwithstanding. wme of the largo Hollywood companies still fe^l that they could recapture the European (Continued on Page Eight) Batista Receives Hias Resolution New York.

The Jewish National Agency for Palestine said the plan "sets up a territorial ghetto for the Jews in their own homeland." The plarr must ob'ain approval of both parliament and the League of Nations.

SEGALL President of the Zionist District The imminent repudiation of the Baufour Declaration and the violation of the Mandate on the part of Great Britain is an arbitrary betrayal of a solemn? international trust accepted by Britain unequivocally. Obviously it is the unwarranted extension of the Chamberlain Government's stupid appeasement policy in the direction of the totalitarian powers. Britain's change of heart is evidence of cowardice.

March 3, 1879 OFFICES IN PRINCIPAL FLORIDA CITIES SUBSCRIPTION One year .... Six Mcntha $2.00 $1.00 FRIDAY, MAY 19, 1939 VOLUME 12.—NUMBER 19. CARRY ON! There resounds throughout the nation a vast wave of protest following the issuing of Great Britain's long-awaited "White Paper" "on its future policy for Palestine. While the news came as a shock to everyone our fears were not unfounded. Dr Bernard Revel, president of the Yeshiva College assailed Great Britain and declared "that we stand aghast, humiliated and helpless witnesses of a pending betiayal by those in whom we placed our faith." We find that Britain has completely ignored every phase of decency, fair-play and justice; that it has completely repudiated the Balfour Declaration, and five years from now will wash its hands of the obligation it ever had to Jewry. Mass protest meetings are being called to once again awaken our people to the fact that their task has just begun. They must raise their voice against such actions that have bee.i taken, for as England has changed her policies in the past, there is still a little hope that she may do the same regarding the Jewish situation in Palestine, because the English statesmen coping with these affairs fully realize the important role the Jews are playing in the development of that country. Although things may have a gloomy outlook for the Jewish people at present, despite all adverse conditions, we must not loss hope, but as true Jews—fight back and bravely carry on! iMiiimmiiiin PAGE THREE Dr. Samuel Beckman has aarv-1 <-d the "Y" notably in presiding) as chairman of all their cultural! programs; and has been the ;>n-1 deraecretary and treasurer as well as the accountant for the "Y" during the past year and does merit due consideration.

The chief rabbi maintained that the government was handing over to a clique of unscrupulous Arab politicians the Jews who would be reduced to a permanent minority.
