BRITISH CAPTURE
REFUGEES AT SEA
Haifa. (WNS Palcor Agency)
Four hundred and one Jewish
refugees, including 265 women
and children.were captured by a
British warship near Nathanya
and were brought to Haifa. The
so-called illegal immigrants were
caught aboard the steamer Ar-
diki, which was flying a Panama
flag, before they had had a
chance to land.
Government authorities in-
formed officials of the Jewish
Agency that the new arrivals
would be released and transfer-
red to the Jewish Agency's Im
migrants' Hotel in this city. The
Jewish leaders were also told
that the refugees would be re-
leased after completion of the
necessary formalities presumably
including the deduction of their
number from the official quota
in accordance with the new im-
migration ordinance.
Havana, (WNS)While two
ocean liners hove to waiting to
disembark more than a thousand
Jewish refugoes from Europe, a
crisis in the Cuban government
threatened to prevent the refu-
gees from landing until the gov-
ernment had determined their
status. At week-end 1,240 refu-
gees had b en refused permis-
sion to land. It was reported
that Col. Fulgencio Batista, mil-
itary chief, favored their entry
but President Laredo Bru, who
recently issued a decree banning
entry of Jewish refugees, threat-
ened to resign if they were allow-
ed to enter.
Chief of Immigration Manuel
Benitez said he was powerless to
allow them entry until the gov-
ernment reached some policy in
regard to refugee immigration-
Many of the refugees were with-
out proper immigration papers,
and it was believed almost all of
them lacked financial support.
Aboard the Hamburg American
Liner St. Louis were more than
900 refugees from Germany,
while more than 100 others clam-
ored for permission to land from
the S- S- Ordunas. Earlieir about
50 refugees had been allowed erf-
try from the steamer Ordunas
but the remainder were barred.
More than 100 refugees on the
French liner Flandre were also
barred over the week-end. The
ship sailed for Veracruz, Mexico,
but since the refugees have visas
for Cuba, it is expected that they
will return next week and make
another attempt to land. The
situation aboard the steamers was
tragic with many seeking to com-
mit suicide by throwing them-
selves overboard. Professor Me-
ier Weiler, 63 years old, died on
the ship of a heart attack.
During the past two months
anti-Semitic activities have been
increasing and agitation in the
newspapers against the Jews has
been open The situation is de-
scribed as being generous for the
Jaws with all newspapers urging
prohibition of all immigration-
SEPHARDIC CHIEF
RABBI SUCCUMBS
Jerusalem, (WNS Palcor Agen-
cy)Thousands of persons from
all over Eretz Israel on Sunday
morning attended the funeral
services held for Sephardic Chief
Rabbi Jacob Meri, who died here
Saturday, May 27th, at the age
of 83.
High Government officials
joined Jewish leaders and dele-
tions from all over the country
to honor the memory of the Je-
rusalem-born Chief Rabbi. Among
those who attended were the
High Commissioner's Aide-He-
Camp, District Commissioner Ed-
ward Keith Reach and various
consuls.

NOTICE!
A short time ago, it was called
to the attention of the officers
of Federation, that some of the
residents of this area had receiv-
ed direct mail solicitation for
contributions from the Chicago
offices of the B'nai B'rith Anti-
Defamation League.
Since this agency is one of the
participating agencies of Feder-

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(BY PHINEAS J. BTRON)
FROM THE ZIONIST FRONT
Orchids to the leaders of the delegations that went to
Washington ten days ago to mobolize their Congressmen on be-
half of Zionist claims to Palestine. Phone calls from Con-
rectly or indirectly the office of gasmen kept the State Department wires busy for a couple of
Federation immediately upon, jb_b _,., *\ ,
1 days. Swellest job of all was done by Elihu Stone, head
of the Massachusetts Zionist delegation.....Newspaper re-
porters who attended the press conferences called by Dr. Solo-
mon Goldman in Washington and Dr. Stephen S. Wise in New
York say that both Zionist leaders could teach some of the big-
gest political figures in the nation's capital the art of answer-
ing questions. The reason why Dr. Weizmann went to
Paris to make his broadcast on the occasion of the dedication of
the Jewish Palestine Pavilion at the New York World's Fair is
that he wanted to speak his mind freely, without interference,
and that he felt he could not do so from British territory. .
AFTER THE WHITE PAPER
Whatever may b? the political imnlications of the British
White Paper on Palestine, they should not be permitted to
obscure the opportunities which remain open to the Jews for
the continued rebuilding of Palestine within the framework of
the latest pronouncement of British policy. Although the
White Paper may temporarily dim the hopes of the Jewish
people, it does not by any means represent the last word or
th; closing chapter in the development of Palestine.
Threfore, despite the new policy. Palestine will be in a
position to ;ibsorb large numbers of Jews in the next few
years. What will happen in 1944 when the British White
Paper decrees that Jewish immigration must be stopped,
what will happen in 1D49 when the question of an indepen-
dent state h to be considered, few of us can foretell in a
world in which tomorrow is so uncertain and so fraught with
in. ponderables.
The spirit of the Jews of America in answering the appeal of
their distressed co-religionists in other lands is most com-
mendable and must continue with unrelenting forcefulness.
It is nevertheless incumbent on us as a matured level-headed
people, experienced in the ways of life, that we discipline our
sympathies to the end that a deeply rooted awareness of our
duties at home is not lost; that the exertion of sincere and
unwavering efforts towards the maintenance and growth of
Judaism in our land is not neglected.
learning of this solicitation, sent
a letter of inquiry to B'nai
Brith's Washington, D. C. head-
quarters, asking for an explana-
tion.
As a EflBUlt of this letter, Fed-
eration is in receipt of a letter
from Harry Shapiro, National
Director Wider Scope Fund, stat-
ing: "It was an unintentional
mistake on the part of the emer-
gency appeal committee of the
Anti-Defamation I-eague in Chi-
cago to circularize the members
(if Miami B'nai B'rith. We regret
that this experience has occur-
red, but let me leave with you
the assurance that we intend to
live up to the terms of the agree-
ment that Wider Scope was not
to solicit qny funds in your com-'
munity for the year ending No-
vember i, 1989."
The matter is called to the
attention if those who received
such letters, for their informa-
tion and as part of the all-year-
round service Federation is ren-
dering to the Miami Jewish com-
munity.

Flagler Street. This should be
a most important meeting and a
large attendance is anticipated.
There is no excuse for lack of
interest today.
FLASH
It's almost too late, bul we may still beat the coble disr
patehes. Dr. C'haim Weizmann will resign from the presi-
dency of the World Zionist Organization either now or in Au-
gust, ;it the World Zionist Congress. ... 11" he doesn'1 resign
he may be forced to quit, by those who believe that he is fol-
lowing an appeasement policy toward England. The truth
of the matter, ;is evidenced by the vote in the House of Com-
mons ill connection with the White Paper, is that Clniim's hold
over the members of the House is stronger than thai of any
other public man in England. ... If less than ;i hundred of the
M. l'.'s who abstained from votingbecause they were against
the White Paper, but were not ready to vote against their gov-
ernment in the existing European crisishad joined the anti-
Chamherlainites, strength against the abrogation of the Balfour
pledge was due entirely to Weizmann's amazing diplomatic
skill and his work among the various Parliamentary groups. .
Benjamin Cohen, candidate for
Miami Beach City Council, is B
graduate of the University of
Pittsburgh, and received his L
L. B. degree from Duquesne I.aw
School in 1925, since which time
he has been in1 active practice of
law in Dade County. He has re-
sided in Miami Beach for the past
15 years and at present has his
law offices at 1456 Washington
Avenue, Miami Beach.
For many years he has been an

in Jewish circles, at the present
time being a membr of the B'nai
B'rith and is a Trustee of the
Beth Jacob Synagogue.
He is basing his campaign upon Palestine. ... It's all part of a plot devised by a cunning
a ten point program dedicated
to the better welfare of the City
of Miami Beach. The ten points
are BS follows:
TRUE STORY
King George's secretary was a bit startled the other day
to receive a black-bordered letter, addressed to His Majesty. .
On opening the letter the secretary found that it contained a
formal announcement of the death of the Balfour Declaration.
. ... If he reads this, he'll learn that this announcement was
sent by a well-known Zionist-Revisionist loader.....
THIS AND THAT
The importance of the sensational exposures of anti-Semit-
ism to which the Dies Committee has at last got around should
not be minimized just because Congressman Dies is said to have
Vive-Presidential ambitions. ... It's a fact, though it may
seem strange, that the Xa/.is frequently help German Jewish
groups to got out of Naziland, provided they promise to go to

FAIR REPORT
That blue and white flag from a masthead before the
Chilean Pavilion at the World's Fair last Sunday was the Jew-
ish Mogen David banner, placed there as a tribute to the Pales-
tine Ptvilion dedication on that day. Life is stranger than
even the wildest ideas hatched by any publicity man. ... We
find it hard to believe, but the publicity department of the Pal-
estine Pavilion swears it had nothing to do with the ten rabbis
who gathered in front of the Magna Carta in the British Pavil-
ion a week ago and opened a scroll of protest against the Brit-
ish Palestine policy, and then repaired to the Palestine Pavil-
ion, where they spent some hours in prayer for Eretz Israel.
Over one of the doors of this Pavilion, incidentally, the
famous Biblical line "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my
right hand lose her cunning" appeared just a couple of days
after the publication of the British White Paper.....

The Jewish Welfare Bureau large extent. This situation is
knows no seasonal decrease in its' due to tha fact of the closing
.ities. During the winter down of hotels, restaurants and
; ntha a large proportion of the various seasonal enterprises, there
families under care are transients.' by throwing a great many of
Seme of the problems concerning j our local people out of employ
i transients were discussed ln|mant As for example:
on of our previous articles in
tory has been one of hotel and
restaurant employment had a po-
sition during the winter months
until the early part of April at
one ^of our beach hotels as a
waiter. His earnings during the
season average between $25.00
and $3000 a week This was suf-
ficient to care for his wife and
two young children but not ade-
quate to set aside a reserve for
this slack period. It has, there-
fore, become necesasry for the
Bureau to now maintain the fam-
ily until such time as Mr. X. can
secure some substitute work and
if this is not possible until such
time as the season again starts.
Under employment is another
phase of our welfare service- A
typical example is as follows:
Mr. O., who is the father of
four children under ten years of
age, is employed on WPA-, earn-
ing $40 00 a month. His wife has
recently returned from the hos-
pital because of a tubercular con-
dition which is now arrested. The
$40.00 earned per month on WPA
being the only source of income
it is necessary for the Bureau to
supplement his earnings and give
the necessary social service re-
quired to the family.

strong and outspoken opponents
of the charter change and are
asking for re-election on their
performance as part of the pres-

pride1 to the splendid condition

William (Bill) Burbridge was
first elected to the City Council
in 1932 and 1934 and has estab-
lished an enviable record for ef-
ficiency and attention to the af-
fairs of the city. He is defi-
nitely opposed to the charter
change and is one of those who
has received much commendation
for the reduction of the city tax-

country. His achievements while
a member of the City Council and
his record in private life are
reasons his friends urge his re-
election to the City Council of
Miami Beach-
Councilman Val C. Cleary, City
Councilman since 1934 and prom-
inent in Miami Beach civic af-
fairs, is opposed to the charter
change because the present city
charter in his opinion has work*

Cleary advocates paving of sev-

to the end so that better driving
may be had; more drainage fa-

Robert W. Ralston, incumbent
councilman is bitterly opposed to
the charter change in the form

the people. Mr. Ralston has been
a resident of the Miami area for
30 years and of Miami Beach for
19 years; has served three terms

A short time ago, it was called to the attention of the officers of Federation, that some of the residents of this area had received direct mail solicitation for contributions from the Chicago offices of the B'nai B'rith AntiDefamation League. Since this agency is one of the participating agencies of Federation, and their allocation was based upon thei r promise not to solicit residents of this area diStrictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (BY PHINEAS J. BTRON) FROM THE ZIONIST FRONT Orchids to the leaders of the delegations that went to Washington ten days ago to mobolize their Congressmen on behalf of Zionist claims to Palestine. Phone calls from Conrectly o r indirectly the office of gasmen kept the State Department wires busy for a couple of Federation immediately upon J B B „„ „ „ _,., *\ 1 days. Swellest job of all was done by Elihu Stone, head of the Massachusetts Zionist delegation N ewspaper reporters who attended the press conferences called by Dr. Solomon Goldman in Washington and Dr. Stephen S. Wise in New York say that both Zionist leaders could teach some of the biggest political figures in the nation's capital the art of answering questions. The reason why Dr. Weizmann went to Paris to make his broadcast on the occasion of the dedication of the Jewish Palestine Pavilion at the New York World's Fair is that he wanted to speak his mind freely, without interference, and that he felt he could not do so from British territory. AFTER THE WHITE PAPER Whatever may b? the political imnlications of the British White Paper on Palestine, they should not be permitted to obscure the opportunities which remain open to the Jews for the continued rebuilding of Palestine within the framework of the latest pronouncement of British policy. Although the White Paper may temporarily dim the hopes of the Jewish people, it does not by any means represent the last word or th ; closing chapter in the development of Palestine. Threfore, despite the new policy. Palestine will be in a %  position to ;ibsorb large numbers of Jews in the next few years. What will happen in 1944 when the British White Paper decrees that Jewish immigration must be stopped, what will happen in 1D49 when the question of an independent state h to be considered, few of us can foretell in a world in which tomorrow is so uncertain and so fraught with in. ponderables. The spirit of the Jews of America in answering the appeal of their distressed co-religionists in other lands is most commendable and must continue with unrelenting forcefulness. It is nevertheless incumbent on us as a matured level-headed people, experienced in the ways of life, that we discipline our sympathies to the end that a deeply rooted awareness of our duties at home is not lost; that the exertion of sincere and unwavering efforts towards the maintenance and growth of Judaism in our land is not neglected. learning of this solicitation, sent a letter of inquiry to B'nai Brith's Washington, D. C. headquarters, asking for an explanation. As a EflBUlt of this letter, Federation is in receipt of a letter from Harry Shapiro, National Director Wide r Scope Fund, stating: "It was an unintentional mistake on the part of the emergency appeal committee of the Anti-Defamation I-eague in Chicago to circularize the members (if Miami B'nai B'rith. We regret that this experience has occurred, but let me leave with you the assurance that we intend to live up to the terms of the agreement that Wider Scope was not to solicit qny funds in your com-' munity for the year ending November i, 1989." The matter is called to the attention if those who received such letters, for their information and as part of the all-yearround service Federation is rendering to the Miami Jewish community.

More about this later. Your reporter will have details concerning the committee, etcetera. B The next regular business meeting Of Sholem lodge will be held Tuesday evening. June 13th. The meeting will take place at the Miami Elk's Lodge on East Flagler Street. This should be a most important meeting and a large attendance is anticipated. There is no excuse for lack of interest today. FLASH It's almost too late, bul we may still beat the coble disr patehes. Dr. C'haim Weizmann will resign from the presidency of the World Zionist Organization either now or in August, ;it the World Zionist Congress. ... 11" he doesn'1 resign he may be forced to quit, by those who believe that he is following an appeasement policy toward England. The truth of the matter, ;is evidenced by the vote in the House of Commons ill connection with the White Paper, is that Clniim's hold over the members of the House is stronger than thai of any other public man in England. ... If less than ;i hundred of the M. l'.'s who abstained from voting—because they were against the White Paper, but were not ready to vote against their government in the existing European crisis —had joined the antiChamherlainites, strength against the abrogation of the Balfour pledge was due entirely to Weizmann's amazing diplomatic skill and his work among the various Parliamentary groups. Benjamin Cohen, candidate for Miami Beach City Council, is B graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, and received his L L. B. degree from Duquesne I.aw School in 1925, since which time he has been in 1 active practice of law in Dade County. He has resided in Miami Beach for the past 15 years and at present has his law offices at 1456 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach. For many years he has been an active worker in the Miami B?ach Civic League, the Masons, Elks and Shrine. He has been active in Jewish circles, at the present time being a membr of the B'nai B'rith and is a Trustee of the Beth Jacob Synagogue. He is basing his campaign upon Palestine. ... It's all part of a plot devised by a cunning a ten point program dedicated to the better welfare of the City of Miami Beach. The ten points are BS follows: TRUE STORY King George's secretary was a bit startled the other day to receive a black-bordered letter, addressed to His Majesty. On opening the letter the secretary found that it contained a formal announcement of the death of the Balfour Declaration. ... If he reads this, he'll learn that this announcement was sent by a well-known Zionist-Revisionist loader THIS AND THAT The importance of the sensational exposures of anti-Semitism to which the Dies Committee has at last got around should not be minimized just because Congressman Dies is said to have Vive-Presidential ambitions. ... It's a fact, though it may seem strange, that the Xa/.is frequently help German Jewish groups to got out of Naziland, provided they promise to go to Advance news gives us the rePort about a boat ride which is SOCIETY LUNCHEON BRIDGE HELD Tuesday.

FAIR REPORT That blue and white flag from a masthead before the Chilean Pavilion at the World's Fair last Sunday was the Jewish Mogen David banner, placed there as a tribute to the Palestine Ptvilion dedication on that day. Life is stranger than even the wildest ideas hatched by any publicity man. ... We find it hard to believe, but the publicity department of the Palestine Pavilion swears it had nothing to do with the ten rabbis who gathered in front of the Magna Carta in the British Pavilion a week ago and opened a scroll of protest against the British Palestine policy, and then repaired to the Palestine Pavilion, where they spent some hours in prayer for Eretz Israel. Over one of the doors of this Pavilion, incidentally, the famous Biblical line "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my right hand lose her cunning" appeared just a couple of days after the publication of the British White Paper PAVILION PERSONALS Pearl L'vison. who has been chosen poet-laureate of the New York World's Fair, is the daughter of Jacob J.

During the winter down of hotels, restaurants and ; ntha a large proportion of the various seasonal enterprises, there families under care are transients.' by throwing a great many of Seme of the problems concerning j our local people out of employ i transients were discussed ln|mant As for example: on of our previous articles in tory has been one of hotel and restaurant employment had a position during the winter months until the early part of April at one ^of our beach hotels as a waiter. His earnings during the season average between $25.00 and $3000 a week This was sufficient to care for his wife and two young children but not adequate to set aside a reserve for this slack period. It has, therefore, become necesasry for the Bureau to now maintain the family until such time as Mr. X. can secure some substitute work and if this is not possible until such time as the season again starts. Under employment is another phase of our welfare serviceA typical example is as follows: Mr. O., who is the father of four children under ten years of age, is employed on WPA-, earning $40 00 a month. His wife has recently returned from the hospital because of a tubercular condition which is now arrested. The $40.00 earned per month on WPA being the only source of income it is necessary for the Bureau to supplement his earnings and give the necessary social service required to the family. i VOTE FOR and ELECT BENJAMIN COHEN • f o r • COUNCIL "Abie Fearless Efficient 9 i (Pd.

(WNS Palcor Agency) —Four hundred and one Jewish refugees, including 265 women and children.were captured by a British warship near Nathanya and were brought to Haifa. The so-called illegal immigrants were caught aboard the steamer Ardiki, which was flying a Panama flag, before they had had a chance to land. Government authorities informed officials of the Jewish Agency that the new arrivals would be released and transferred to the Jewish Agency's Im migrants' Hotel in this city. The Jewish leaders were also told that the refugees would be released after completion of the necessary formalities presumably including the deduction of their number from the official quota in accordance with the new immigration ordinance. Havana, (WNS)—While two ocean liners hove to waiting to disembark more than a thousand Jewish refugoes from Europe, a crisis in the Cuban government threatened to prevent the refugees from landing until the government had determined their status. At week-end 1,240 refugees had b en refused permission to land. It was reported that Col. Fulgencio Batista, military chief, favored their entry but President Laredo Bru, who recently issued a decree banning entry of Jewish refugees, threatened to resign if they were allowed to enter. Chief of Immigration Manuel Benitez said he was powerless to allow them entry until the government reached some policy in regard to refugee immigrationMany of the refugees were without proper immigration papers, and it was believed almost all of them lacked financial support. Aboard the Hamburg American Liner St. Louis were more than 900 refugees from Germany, while more than 100 others clamored for permission to land from the SSOrdunas. Earlieir about 50 refugees had been allowed erftry from the steamer Ordunas but the remainder were barred. More than 100 refugees on the French liner Flandre were also barred over the week-end. The ship sailed for Veracruz, Mexico, but since the refugees have visas for Cuba, it is expected that they will return next week and make another attempt to land. The situation aboard the steamers was tragic with many seeking to commit suicide by throwing themselves overboard. Professor Meier Weiler, 63 years old, died on the ship of a heart attack. During the past two months anti-Semitic activities have been increasing and agitation in the newspapers against the Jews has been open The situation is described as being generous for the Jaws with all newspapers urging prohibition of all immigrationSEPHARDIC CHIEF RABBI SUCCUMBS Jerusalem, (WNS Palcor Agency)—Thousands of persons from all over Eretz Israel on Sunday morning attended the funeral services held for Sephardic Chief Rabbi Jacob Meri, who died here Saturday, May 27th, at the age of 83. High Government officials joined Jewish leaders and deletions from all over the country to honor the memory of the Jerusalem-born Chief Rabbi. Among those who attended were the High Commissioner's Aide-HeCamp, District Commissioner Edward Keith Reach and various consuls.
