Agreements reached by George S. Rublee, former director of the Intergovernmental Refugee Commission, and Nazi authorities, for orderly emigration of 150,000 young, able-bodied, Jewish refugees with subsequent emigration of their dependents, numbering 250,000, within five years, were laws. These permits were nullified, however, by a decree issued by the President May 5th, establishing new regulations for the entry of immigrants into Cuba. In view of the firm stand taken by Cuban immigration authorities, Captain Gustav Schroeder of the St. Louis sailed out of this port with his shipload of despairing passengers who threatened a "collective suicide pact," in vain attampt to force the government to rescind its order against landing them. Cuban guards, maintaining a close watch on the refugees, reported that the situation was desperate. Mothers and children cried incessantly and calls to meals were virtually unanswered. The departure of the St. Louis was preceded by pathetic scenes, both on board and at the waterY. M. H. A.

Everywhere we are confronted with Refugees. On land and sea—from country to country—victims of a savagery that knows no bounds. The story of a "Man Without a Country," greatly enlarged, once again brought to mind. Knocking at gates the world over—knocking at gates close—so close to Floridians, come ships from abroad—travelers asking for a Haven of refuge—a resting place—astopover until they can finish their journey— seeking the freedom they are deprived of—the Freedom only Democracy can offer. Not people anymore but refugees, stripped of everything, forlorn and destitute. Hopeful yesterday— helpless today. Yes—we know—proposals unacceptable and still quickly withdrawn—the doors are closed and they must return to seawanderers—REFUGEES. The unsolved problem—Where can they go—mumblings of mass suicides— the cry of anywhere but back to the hell from which they came. Conferences—discussions—resolutionsmass meetings—the cry of the Christian world, who know right from wrong. The hope of Palestine—as a homeland, as a haven for refugees, fading—the seat of internal strife—the reaction to a yellow paper whitewashed. Again, we are confronted with headlines—one, a President welcomes a King, a demonstration of pood will—of harmony between peoples and nations and another headline-10,000 Polish Jews in Germany rounded up by police— first into concentration camp and then deportation -MORE REFUGEES. Once more we find the tribe of Israel a persecuted one. once more the Jew as the wanderer. And as we find history relating itself, we cannot help but look forward to the time wher, the rays of the sun will again hide the clouds of trouble ud despair our brethren are facing; when Jewry the world over ,,11 face the light of a day free from Anti-Sem,tism-free from barbarous d.ctators-FREE FROM REFUGEES.

That plundering of the palace of the Archbishop of Salzburg is only a beginning. This palace, by the "Xw used to Berve as the backdrop of the open-air productions thai -Max.

The Japanese Foreign .Minister, of all people, recently presented to the German Ueichsfuehrcr, of all people, a gold image of Buddha bearing the inscription: "Peace sustains life; war only destroys. Ye wise men. hold fast to peace." WE'RE TELLING YOU There is still a possibility that Dr. Weizmann may make a flying trip to the United States prior to the Zionist Congress, wheh opens at Geneva in the middle of August. Incidentally, the American delegation to this Congress will be the largest ever. There will be 115 delegates representing the various Zionist parties in this country. One of the betterknown English-Jewish weeklies is preparing plans for publishing a score or more of local editions for various communities in the United States—an undertaking which we think wiD. not succeed. Many of the German Jewish refugees in this country are trying to establish chicken farms, being sick and tired of the cities, which hold so little prospect for them Just for record's sake we want to tell you that the Poland German-American Society of New York is an anti-Nazi organization whose members, of German descent, are true Americans, and as opposed to Nutzi Fritzi Kuhn as you or we NAZTI NEWS The Great Northern Hotel of New York was the only place the anti-Semitic groups herded together by Allen Zoll, long known as a buddy of the Bund, could find to accommodate a. rally at which New York State Senator John Wi. McNabo'e spoke while the audience of 700 vociferously insisted that Jews should he thrown out of "Christian America" News commentator Boake Carter and Queens Borough President Harvey, who had been announced ;is speakers at the meeting, apparently thought better of it. and stayed away. After all, even editorial columnists and political leaders have to reckon with the reaction of readers and voters to too flagrant a violation of the decencies. As for .Mr. McNaboe—we'll leave that deduction to your own imagination F ritz Kuhn will stage a disappearance act before long and leave the country unannounced on one of the German boats. Hitler has decided thai his usefulness in Ibis country is a thing of the past. General George Van Horn Moseley is the man who devised a new machine gnu for shooting at the army of unemployed who made ilwit hunger march on Washington during the Hoover administration. THIS AND THAT Westbrook Pegler, who in a nasty column recently denied American Jews the right to be Zionists, should read the pamphlet which former Justice Louis D. Brandeis wrote over twenty years ago, entitled '' The Jewish Problem and How to Solve It" M r. Pegler could use the lesson in patriotism he would get out of the booklet. Strange indeed that the 5,000,000th visitor to the World's Fair, who passed through the gate on the day on which practically 80 per cent of the visitors were Jews attending the Palestine Pavilion dedication, was an Irish lad ... Which reminds us that while all the other papers agreed that over 100,000 attended the dedication exercises in the Court of Peace, the New York Times insisted that there were only 50,000 Now that both the Palestine and the Czech Pavilions at the Fair have been dedicated, the British Pavilion's facade should be suffused with blushes.

The principal speaker of the evening will be TOM Kelly, Past Commander of the American Legion, Harvey Seeds PostThe Junior Drum and Bugle Corp of the Frieda Markowitz Post, Jewish War Veterans, who so ably performed at our last meeting will render several selections under the leadership of Mr. Harry Schulman. Ruth Rosdnfeld, a member of our Girl Scout Troop, will deliver a short history of the Flag. Mrs. Pearl Reisman will give patriotic piano selections. Miss Lillian Marcus will play the accordion and Miss Evelyn Auslander will render a patriotic recitation. Refreshments will be served by a committee from the Y. W. H. A. The public is invited. Admission is FREE!! Y JUNIOR DIVISION Y. M. H. A. ELECTS OUTSTANDING OFFICERS On Sunday evening, June 11th, this Division will play host to all the recent high school graduates in this vicinity at a reception and dance to be held at the "Y" A splendid program is being plan, ned and all high school graduates will be admitted free. Maurice Grossman, the executive director, announces that Monday, June 12th, complete details will be announced for the coming oratorical contest for members of this Division. Cash prizes will be awarded. All those interested are urged to be present. Y ; SUB JUNIOR DIVISION The old battle cry as to who would be president of the Y. M. H. A., was taken care of at the nomination meeting two weeks j ago when E. Albert Pallot was unanimously elected to that office. However in the race for the other offices a tough bit of competition ensued to the delight of members presentIn the race for Vice-Presidefit, incumbent Alvin Grossman was elected by a vote of 43 to 19 over the candidacy of Dr. Sam Beckman. Frank Rose also a candidate fo r this office declined in! favor of Grossman. Leon Lieberman was just sitting tight as i he was elected unanimously at, the nomination meeting. In the | much talked about race for treas-1 urer, Nat Blumberg, watchdog ofi the "Y" Treasury was re-elected I over the candidacy of Al Berko-| witz by a 50 to 14 count. Now' we come to results of the victor-; ious board members. Elected for the three year tarm were: Dr.i Samuel Beckman, who led the slate with 37 votes closely fol-i lowed by Herman Waitsman 32, and Dr. Harold Rand 29 votes.' Jack Apte received 33 votes to be elected for the two year term. In the runoff for the 1 year board members, Leo Robinson, president of the American Bank and Fred Shochet, managing editor of The Jewish Floridian, led the ticket. Irving: Querido of Jane A watermelon party will be held by this Division at the "Y." on Saturday evening, June 10th. A novel program is being prepared by the committee. Mrs. Bea Stepkin, sponsor of this Division, has formed a discussion group of current events which takes place after each business meeting of this Division. Y HOME CAMP Do You Own Your Home?

And so my frans that just about concludes the list of officers that will represent the Y. M. H. A. for the next 12 months and more if tha"t be >'<*•* pleasure. In offering a few comments on the election according to what I heard, the members of the "Y are to be congratulated upon electing so splendid a group of officers who we all feel will carry the "Y" banner to greater heights than ever before. As well as there were winners there also were losers and let me say here and now that the gestures made by Dr. Milton Saslaw and Frank Rose who declined in favor of other candidates wclre indeed sporting. Due to the limitation of 15 officers many fine workers lost out in their race for the board but I sincerely hope they will be the good sports and workers as they were before the election and continue to help the "Y" grow now. Chester Alexander led the entertainment menu with his, humorous kibitzing and then introduced Mr. Roy Jahns, sleight of hand artist, who had the boys goofy with his neat work.

WE'RE TELLING YOU
There is still a possibility that Dr. Weizmann may make a
flying trip to the United States prior to the Zionist Congress,
wheh opens at Geneva in the middle of August. Inciden-
tally, the American delegation to this Congress will be the
largest ever. There will be 115 delegates representing the
various Zionist parties in this country. One of the better-
known English-Jewish weeklies is preparing plans for publish-
ing a score or more of local editions for various communities in
the United Statesan undertaking which we think wiD. not
succeed. Many of the German Jewish refugees in this
country are trying to establish chicken farms, being sick and
tired of the cities, which hold so little prospect for them.....

NAZTI NEWS
The Great Northern Hotel of New York was the only place
the anti-Semitic groups herded together by Allen Zoll, long
known as a buddy of the Bund, could find to accommodate a.

spoke while the audience of 700 vociferously insisted that Jews
should he thrown out of "Christian America" News com-
mentator Boake Carter and Queens Borough President Harvey,
who had been announced ;is speakers at the meeting, apparent-

editorial columnists and political leaders have to reckon with
the reaction of readers and voters to too flagrant a violation
of the decencies. As for .Mr. McNaboewe'll leave that
deduction to your own imagination.....Fritz Kuhn will
stage a disappearance act before long and leave the country
unannounced on one of the German boats. Hitler has de-

THIS AND THAT
Westbrook Pegler, who in a nasty column recently denied
American Jews the right to be Zionists, should read the pam-
phlet which former Justice Louis D. Brandeis wrote over twen-
ty years ago, entitled '' The Jewish Problem and How to Solve
It".....Mr. Pegler could use the lesson in patriotism he
would get out of the booklet. Strange indeed that the
5,000,000th visitor to the World's Fair, who passed through the
gate on the day on which practically 80 per cent of the visitors
were Jews attending the Palestine Pavilion dedication, was an
Irish lad ... Which reminds us that while all the other
papers agreed that over 100,000 attended the dedication exer-
cises in the Court of Peace, the New York Times insisted that
there were only 50,000 Now that both the Palestine and
the Czech Pavilions at the Fair have been dedicated, the British

a port of docking in this tropical
area of th Western hemisphere
attracted the attention and in-
terest of numerous groups and
organizations, both Jewish and
non-Jewish. A protest mass
meeting under the sponsorship of
th Ministerial Association of
Miami, composing all Christian
ministers, was held Wednesday
nigh! in Bayfront Park. About
2.000 people attended, a majority
of whom were Christian Ameri-
can citizens. A natural expres-
sion from a freedom loving peo-
ple. No one can doubt the im-
portance of this serious problem.
This single boat load of our
Brother Isra lites is but a symbol
of what is to follow in the near
future.

Your writer fails to understand
the apparent lack of interest on
the part of Sholem Lodge or
handle the problem. This, of
course, is obviously the fault of
the organization which sits idly
by on the "side line's" and waits
for "George" to do it.

ABOUT PEOPLE
Captain N. Taylor Phillips,
who placed the Eternal iLght in
the Memorial Hall of the Jewish
Palestine Pavilion at its dedica-
tion exercises a couple of Sun-
days ago, was chosen for this
honor not only because he is the
President of the Spanish and
Portugese Synagogue, oldest Jew-
ish congregation in this country,
but also because he is a descen-
dant of one of the first Jewish
settlers to come to what is now
the United States. It was way
back in 1654, on the famous St.
Charles, that the Captain's an-
cestors came from the Old World
to the New. His family tree
iitcludos also Rabbi Gershom
Mr. Lewis L. Strauss. Commencement Speaker at the Jew-
ish Theologicel Seminary of America; and Dr. Simon Hev-
esi, Chief Rabbi of Budapest, upon whom was conferred the

Dr. Albert Einstein (right,) world-famous scientist, called

Fair after his recent visit to this exhibit. Dr. Einstien is

SUB JUNIOR DIVISION
The old battle cry as to who
would be president of the Y. M.
H. A., was taken care of at the
nomination meeting two weeks j
ago when E. Albert Pallot was
unanimously elected to that of-
fice. However in the race for
the other offices a tough bit of
competition ensued to the delight
of members present-
In the race for Vice-Presidefit,
incumbent Alvin Grossman was
elected by a vote of 43 to 19 over
the candidacy of Dr. Sam Beck-
man. Frank Rose also a candi-
date for this office declined in!
favor of Grossman. Leon Lieb-
erman was just sitting tight as i
he was elected unanimously at,
the nomination meeting. In the |
much talked about race for treas-1
urer, Nat Blumberg, watchdog ofi
the "Y" Treasury was re-elected I
over the candidacy of Al Berko-|
witz by a 50 to 14 count. Now'
we come to results of the victor-;
ious board members. Elected for
the three year tarm were: Dr.i
Samuel Beckman, who led the
slate with 37 votes closely fol-i
lowed by Herman Waitsman 32,
and Dr. Harold Rand 29 votes.'
Jack Apte received 33 votes to
be elected for the two year term.
In the runoff for the 1 year board
members, Leo Robinson, presi-
dent of the American Bank and
Fred Shochet, managing editor
of The Jewish Floridian, led the
ticket. Irving: Querido of Jane
A watermelon party will be
held by this Division at the "Y."

A novel program is being pre-
pared by the committee. Mrs.

vision, has formed a discussion
group of current events which
takes place after each business
meeting of this Division.

officers that will represent the
Y. M. H. A. for the next 12
months and more if tha"t be >'<**
pleasure.
In offering a few comments
on the election according to what
I heard, the members of the "Y
are to be congratulated upon
electing so splendid a group of
officers who we all feel will carry
the "Y" banner to greater heights
than ever before.
As well as there were winners
there also were losers and let me
say here and now that the ges-
tures made by Dr. Milton Saslaw
and Frank Rose who declined in
favor of other candidates wclre
indeed sporting. Due to the lim-
itation of 15 officers many fine
workers lost out in their race
for the board but I sincerely hope
they will be the good sports and
workers as they were before the
election and continue to help the
"Y" grow now.
Chester Alexander led the en-
tertainment menu with his, hum-
orous kibitzing and then intro-
duced Mr. Roy Jahns, sleight of

Max Shankman served the re-
freshmflnts. Yes folkses every-
body had a good time to conclude
the 1939 elections.
Lou Safanowitz in appreciation
upon being elected to the board
put on a special show for the
boys, and folks no kidding it was
the? best I ever did see.
