FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 1939 PRICE TEN CENTS FUTURE OF PALEST1WE IN BILMCE IS CONGRESS OPENS Commissioner Cites Need For Loans Geneva, (WNS-Palcor Agency) ( —With the opening of the Twenty-first biennial World Zionist Congress on Wednesday, technical preparations for the conduct ofi the most momentous session in Zionist history rapidly reached %  completion at a meeting of the] Action* Committee on Tuesday. Menahem Ussishkin was elected President of the Praesidium of the Congress, which will also include eight vice-presiderrts, among them Dr. Solomon Goldman. President of the Zionist Organization of AmericaWith the future of Palestine in the balance, 516 delegates from all parts of the world were reported as having registered, in ad^ : t : Ti *o the members of the Action's Committee. When reg-1 istration is completed, it is believed that the Conyress will have an attendance of about t>00 dele gates Of that number, labor has : 223. forming 42 percent; the Con-, f "deration of General Zionists has 134 or 28 percent; the Mizrachi. 79, or 15 percent; the Union of General Zionists, 41, or 7 12 percent ;the Jewish State Party. 8; the left Poale Zion, 10, and unclassified delegates, 14. Th-*vice-presidents of the Congress comprise three for labor, two for the General Zionists, one for left Peale Zion. The representatives of the Confederation are Dr. Solomon Goldman and Or. Nahum Goldman; of the Mizrachi. Rabbi Meier Berlin; for the Jewish State Party, J. M. Machover. The elections took place at a meeting of the Actions Commit tea at which Monahem IVi-hkin presided, with Dr. Weizmar.'i 111 attendance. Following a debate it was decided to subdivide Congress activity into six sections, namely, land and colonization; finance, trade and industry ;immigration; labor; organization and propaganda. There will also be the usual Permnenz Ausschuss or Committee on Committees and a Political Commission for the discussion of separate questions arising out of reports to be made to the Congress and out of the general debate Fisher of Chicago, Rabbi Israel Goldstein of New York, F.lihu D. Stone of Boston, Mrs. Moses P. Epstein, Mrs. David de Sola Pool and Miss Juliet Benjamin of New YorkMarros Margulies, Secretary of the Zionist Organization, is secretary of the Steering Committee. Dr. Goldman injected the first issue into the meeeting when he urged that the Zionist Executive be elected by the Congress be composed of members chosen on and not as part of party representationIt was the view of the American Zionist leader that the critical situation facing Palestine demanded the best men the Zionist movement could produce without the handicap of having to satisfy party demands and interests. Support for this view was voiced by Dr. Abba Hillel Silver of Cleveland, while opposition 1 ranks was a primary requisite at this time and that a disturbance of the system that has prevailed for many years in the past would not be wise. He 1 8 f e,t that eacn party was at the present time offering the best candidates it could make available. Geneva, (WNS)—In a report to be submitted to the 20th session of the League Assembly, Sir Herbert Emerson, the League of i Nations Commissioner for Refu%  gees stresses the need for additional fund to facilitate the work i of private organizations engaged in refugee emigration work. The reports point out that these groups now bear nearly the entire burden and were deserving of support because the problem is increasing. MEVW EOIGT FORCES GREAT CZECH EMIGRATION ITALY OUSTS FOREIGN JEWS GENERAL ZIONIST GHOl'l' ISSUES ULTIMATUM WITH SIX DEMANDS AMERICANS ORGANIZE FOR CONGRESS, NAMING DRGOLDMAN CHAIRMAN Geneva, (WNS-Palcor Agency) —The leaders of the American Zionist delegation to the World Zionist Congress met here on Monday to formulate the American stand on various policies that will be considered by the Congress and elected a body of officers as a steering committee with Dr. Solomon Goldman, President of the Zionist Organization of America, as Chairman. The Steering Committee will consist of Rabbi Barnett R. Brickner of Cleveland, Judge Harry M. Geneva. WNS-Palcor Agency) —The united front that was to have characterized the twentyfirst World Zionist Congress was having severe strains placed upon it as difference were expressed within the delegations of various parties and various countries and as one group, the Union of General Zionists, issued an ultimatum stating that it would not participate fully in the Zionist Executive program unless ths major terms were met. The Executive of the Union of General Zionists published th-? following six-pointed demand upon the Congress which opened on Wednesday evening: First, the elections for the Concross held in Palestine and Poland be annulled, on the ground that they ewere illegally carried out; Second, that the franchise be confined to the permanent members of the Zionist Organization; Third, that there be a complete reorganization of the World Zionist Organization with equality for all sections of the movement vis-a-vis the Executive on immigration and colonization. Fourth, that there be representation of all sections of the Organization within the political and financial departments; Fifth, that a budget of $10,000,be adopted, of which $5,000,000 would represent an internal loan for the Keren Hayesod; Sixth; the Germar Department (Continued on Page Five) Rome, (WNS)—The names of j tin firms which under Italy's anti-Jewish laws must pass out of i Jewish Hands were published here in the official gazette. This was the f ; rst step in putting into effect laws forbidding Jews to own enterprises connected with national defense or employing more than 100 persons. The firms must either be deeded to other owners or liquidated. Within sixty days of publication of their names a commissioner must be appointed to begin procedure to dispose of each firm Among the names published were those of a paper manufacturer whose business was clas! sified as important to national defense; Amilcare Pipemo Alcorso, one of Rome's largest depart ment stores ;and Cesare Verona, Italian representative of an American typewriter concern. HITLER CAUSE QUEBEC HATRED Toronto, (WNS)—Alderman Stewart Smith charged Belgian Baron Ampin with disseminating anti-Semitism in St. Agathe Quebec and that "the latest manifestations of anti-Semitism are directly caused by Hitler hirelings who play on local prejudice to raise high the anti-Canadian flame of racism and hatred." In a speech to his constituents following his nomination. Alderman Smith said that the antiJewish demonstrations in StAgathe recently can be attributed to the activities of the Baron Ampin. "This foreign fascist," said Smith, "operates Nazi propaganda from the Domaine D'Esterel and under his influence local proNazis and anti-Semites are attempting to force Jewish residents to sell their holdings for ridiculously small amounts." Alderman Smith concluded that "It is essential for the well-being of the whole Canadian people that the Dominion Government immediately investigate this /rat-hole of intrigue which goes under the name of the Domaine D'Esterel, as well as the charge that Werner Haag is the importer of racial strife in the Laurentians." The government meanwhile, has initiated a new drive against foreign Jews who remained in Italy after the March 12 expulsion date although hundreds of Jewish refUgees from Germany were per-1 mined to enter the country on' temporary permits. Informed sources said that all foreign Jews numbering about 3,000. will be requested to leave Italy within; from one to four weeks following receipt of police orders. It was disclosed that in a report to Premier Mussolini, Achille Starace, secretary of the Fascist Party, revealed that race doctrine's was the subject given most emphasis by the Italian Ministry of Propaganda during the current year. 2.000 lectures and meetings on the subject were devoted to the question of racial policies by the institute which is a center of information on such problems. Laws passed last year, barring Jews from employing non-Jewish servants, were this week made official by Italian authorities. The measure had left open possibilities for Jews to obtam permission to employ "aryan" servants who had been with them for te n or twenty years or more. The decree law of November 17, 1938 now prohibits the employment of non-Jewish servants by Jewish families, and a fine of 1,000 to 5,000 lire will be imposed Bolivia Scores AntiJewish Incitement IJI Paz. Bolivia. (WNS)—AntiJewish agitation in Bolivia will not be tolerated, according to an editorial appearing in the Government's official newspaper, which demanded that police take action against demonstrations in the Streets by anti-Semitic youths. holding that such incitement is an insult to the country. Further evidence of the tolerance of President German Busch's government is shown in the granting of pernvssion for kosher slaughter in Bolivia and the appointment of Dr. Pomerantz and George Friedlander as directors of the newSocial Security Department of the Ijibor Ministry. Dr. Pomerantz is a refugee from Czechoslovakia and a former instructor of mathematics at Prague University. Two refugee experts were also engaged by the Agriculture Ministry. The Government granted permission for kosher slaughter on application of the Jewish center which previously had been permitted to slaughter only fowl according to Hebrew ritual. The action led one newspaper to condemn kosher slaughter as unhygienic and unhumanitarian. on Jews who keep "aryan' Prague. (WNS)—All Jews were ordered to evacuate provincial cities and move to Prague, according to reliable information which revealed that the order served upon Dr. Emil Kafk.t, president of the Prague Jewish Community, and other Jewish leaders by Storm Troop leader Eichmanw, head of the Gestapo Emigration Office for Jews is designed to concentrate the entire Czech Jewish population for Strict control and speedy emigratiei The order is said to affect all Jews, including women, child;* n and the old and feebele. Complete evacuation of provincial towns and concentration i" -" Prague, expected to be completed within the next twelve months, provoked despair among Cr.et Jewry Throngs of provincial Jews will have to be sheltered by the Prague Jewish community which set about to arrange for their maintenance. All prospective Jewish emigrants, the GesI tapo announc movement of Jews from the "protectorate" will involve the emigration of no less than 70.000 refugees if the order is completely successful. Complete ruin faces approximately 60.000 Jews, many of whose families lived in Czechia for centuries. Jews have been ordered dismissed from the Prague. Stock Exchange and Corn Exchange and Jewish brokers may be barred from the Prague Bourse. REFUGEE VESSELS ADRIFT ON SEAS Istanbul.

B Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (BY PHINEAS J. BIRON) HEAR YE The late Israel Friedkin, publisher of the Jewish Morning Journal who just passed on, was seriously considering the establishing of a big English daily. Maurice Samuel may take a flying trip to Euron? and Palestine and come back with a very important book. Joel Lipsky, youngest of Louis Lipsky's sons, is back from Oxford England, with a great deal of that British saviorfaire. The Habima Theatre may come to America after all for a season of its Palestine repertory. That article in last week's New Republic on the Jewish army in Palestine tells cnly half the tale. Those New York policemen who were much too nonchalant about disturbances by Coughlinites will get a little surprise from the Police Commissioner before long NOTE OF THANKS Orchids in Bernard Postal, for r colleague on tin Si • n Arts stuff and now big publicit\ chief of the B'nai B'rith, for THE WORLD ZIONIST CONGRESS Last Wednesday night 505 delegates from thirty-five countries throughout the world assembled in Geneva to hear Dr. Chaim Weizmann, President of the World Zionist Organization and the Jewish Agency for Palestine, officially inaugurate the Twenty-first Biennial World Zionist Congress. It is a Congress which is meeting three months after the issuance of the White Paper and one month after the announcement by Colonial Secretary MacDonald that all Jewish immigration into Palestine would be suspended for a period of six months beginning October 1939. It is a Congress meet-1 ing one year after the establishment of the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees, and only a short time before the conference called by President Roosevelt is scheduled to meet in the White House to consider means for alleviating the plight of the refugees. The political problems confronting the Twenty-first Congress in the form of the new Government policy can be accuratey appraised only against the background of the Munich atmosphere in Europe. Some Zionist leaders have seen such a strong parallel between the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia and the BritiFh White Paper that they have compared the position of Dr. Weizmann to that of Benes. Dr. Weizmann, thev say, was as much a, victim of the policy of appeasement as Dr. Benes. Though the parallel may be graphic and dramatic, it is not altogether a clear-cut picture of what is happening in Palestine. Dr. Weizmann is by no means in the position of Dr. Benes. We must not forget that while the Republic of Czechoslovakia was completely destroyed, Jewish Palestine remains intact. In the case of Palestine the British policy of appeasement represents a program of future crystallization. The principle of reducing the Jewish population to a permanent minority, on which the White Paper is founded, is in itself a denial of the Belfour Declaration and a violation of the League of Nations Mandate. But in any analysis of the situation, we must not overlook the fact that the Jewish people have a breathing spell in the form of a transition of not less than five years during which the British Government has provided for a minimum Jewish immigration of 75,000. On the political horizon Jewish Palestine is beset by many hardships and many systematic attempts to whittle down Jewish rights. But the chief concern of the Zionist Organization mnst now be with a program of practical endeavor designed to strengthen and extend the Jewish position through colonization and economic development and make room for the Jewish refugees who have been driven to the shores of Palestine. The Twenty-first World Zionist Congress is meeting in an hour when Palestine has become a desperate necessity for hundreds of thousands of Jews. The extreme gravity of the Jewish position in European lands will cut through all political considerations to impress upon all delegates the supreme need of united, vigorous action for the future. Now. B'ani B'rith is under a duty to carry out its responsibility. Our lodge—the strongest Jewish organization in Dade -ounty. and even the State of ( s) mli „„ th| f 0 n ow ing items, whirl, make up Ih,. re* of I ula. has never failed to ft fill ,, ., .. i its obligations once having plcff-| t hw eoh,mn %  • %  Hl made lblp ""' >' onr ,n,lj '" '"' ed it-e|f.

This is a challenge from your writer to uphold the dignity and prestige which is now honorably enjoyed by Sholem Lodge, The Brothers must awaken from their slumber and get out and work and produce. You owe it to yourself, Good Brother Ben B'rith as B. P.'s lowdown. REFUGEE ROLL CALL A big scheme connected with refugees is believed to be the real reason for Postmaster Gnral Farley's trip to Europe, during which he visited Germany and Poland.

If only Mrs. Sam Specter (nee Ida Engler) were here to offer an appropriate poem so in my humble way I wish to offer Mr. Grossman heartiest congratulations upon concluding one year as Executive Director of the Y. M. H. A. Never before in the 8 year history of the Y. has its progress been so rapid as under his able the basis of their personal merit leadership. It would take at least ." issues to mention the many splendid projects that have been inaugurated during the past year through the arduous efforts of Mr. Grossman. Quoting the very words Mr. Grossman used one year ago: "Gentlemen I can assure you of one thing if I am elected as your Executive Director, I will devote my every effort talking Y. M. H. A. and breathing Y. M. H, A., until the entire community becomes Y. M. H. A. conscious." Yes folks thats exactly what Mr. Grossman has done and is doing with a greater determination than ever to see the realization of a Community Center come true. I feel certain Mr. Grossman that these sentiments are also the sentiments of every board member and member of the entire Y. M. H. A.—Good luck. By the way, thanks for those swell columns while I was resting or was I ? Leo Lipowsky led a group of 18 Y. bowlers in the Miami Herald Duckpin Tourney, and placed 16th in a field of 275 entered.

Geneva, (WNS-Palcor Agency) (
With the opening of the Twen-
ty-first biennial World Zionist
Congress on Wednesday, technical
preparations for the conduct ofi
the most momentous session in
Zionist history rapidly reached
completion at a meeting of the]
Action* Committee on Tuesday.
Menahem Ussishkin was elect-
ed President of the Praesidium of
the Congress, which will also in-
clude eight vice-presiderrts, among
them Dr. Solomon Goldman.
President of the Zionist Organi-
zation of America-
With the future of Palestine in
the balance, 516 delegates from
all parts of the world were re-
ported as having registered, in
ad^:t:Ti *o the members of the
Action's Committee. When reg-1
istration is completed, it is be-
lieved that the Conyress will have
an attendance of about t>00 dele
gates Of that number, labor has :
223. forming 42 percent; the Con-,
f "deration of General Zionists
has 134 or 28 percent; the Miz-
rachi. 79, or 15 percent; the Un-
ion of General Zionists, 41, or
7 12 percent ;the Jewish State
Party. 8; the left Poale Zion, 10,
and unclassified delegates, 14.
Th-*- vice-presidents of the Con-
gress comprise three for labor,
two for the General Zionists, one
for left Peale Zion. The repre-
sentatives of the Confederation
are Dr. Solomon Goldman and
Or. Nahum Goldman; of the Miz-
rachi. Rabbi Meier Berlin; for
the Jewish State Party, J. M.
Machover.
The elections took place at a
meeting of the Actions Commit
tea at which Monahem IVi-hkin
presided, with Dr. Weizmar.'i 111
attendance.
Following a debate it was de-
cided to subdivide Congress ac-
tivity into six sections, namely,
land and colonization; finance,
trade and industry ;immigration;
labor; organization and propa-
ganda. There will also be the
usual Permnenz Ausschuss or
Committee on Committees and a
Political Commission for the dis-
cussion of separate questions

to the Congress and out of the
general debate

Epstein, Mrs. David de Sola Pool
and Miss Juliet Benjamin of New
York- Marros Margulies, Secre-
tary of the Zionist Organization,
is secretary of the Steering Com-
mittee. ,
Dr. Goldman injected the first
issue into the meeeting when he
urged that the Zionist Executive
be elected by the Congress be
composed of members chosen on
and not as part of party repre-
sentation- It was the view of the
American Zionist leader that the
critical situation facing Palestine
demanded the best men the Zion-
ist movement could produce with-
out the handicap of having to
satisfy party demands and inter-
ests.
Support for this view was voic-
ed by Dr. Abba Hillel Silver of
Cleveland, while opposition1 ranks
was a primary requisite at this
time and that a disturbance of
the system that has prevailed for
many years in the past would not
be wise. He 18 fe,t that eacn
party was at the present time of-
fering the best candidates it could
make available.
Geneva, (WNS)In a report
to be submitted to the 20th ses-
sion of the League Assembly, Sir
Herbert Emerson, the League of
i Nations Commissioner for Refu-
gees stresses the need for addi-
tional fund to facilitate the work
i of private organizations engaged
in refugee emigration work. The
' reports point out that these
groups now bear nearly the en-
tire burden and were deserving
of support because the problem
is increasing.

Geneva, (WNS-Palcor Agency)
The leaders of the American
Zionist delegation to the World
Zionist Congress met here on
Monday to formulate the Ameri-
can stand on various policies that
will be considered by the Con-
gress and elected a body of offi-
cers as a steering committee with
Dr. Solomon Goldman, President
of the Zionist Organization of
America, as Chairman.
The Steering Committee will
consist of Rabbi Barnett R. Brick-

Geneva. WNS-Palcor Agency)
The united front that was to
have characterized the twenty-
first World Zionist Congress was
having severe strains placed upon
it as difference were expressed
within the delegations of various
parties and various countries and
as one group, the Union of Gen-
eral Zionists, issued an ultima-
tum stating that it would not
participate fully in the Zionist
Executive program unless ths
major terms were met.
The Executive of the Union of
General Zionists published th-?
following six-pointed demand up-
on the Congress which opened on
Wednesday evening:
First, the elections for the Con-
cross held in Palestine and Po-
land be annulled, on the ground
that they ewere illegally carried
out;
Second, that the franchise be
confined to the permanent mem-
bers of the Zionist Organization;
Third, that there be a complete
reorganization of the World Zion-
ist Organization with equality
for all sections of the movement
vis-a-vis the Executive on immi-
gration and colonization.
Fourth, that there be represen-
tation of all sections of the Or-
ganization within the political
and financial departments;
Fifth, that a budget of $10,000,-
be adopted, of which $5,000,000
would represent an internal loan
for the Keren Hayesod;
Sixth; the Germar Department

Rome, (WNS)The names of j
tin firms which under Italy's an-
ti-Jewish laws must pass out of i
Jewish Hands were published here
in the official gazette. This was
the f;rst step in putting into ef-
fect laws forbidding Jews to own
enterprises connected with nat-
ional defense or employing more
than 100 persons. The firms
must either be deeded to other
owners or liquidated.
Within sixty days of publica-
tion of their names a commis-
sioner must be appointed to begin
procedure to dispose of each
firm Among the names publish-
ed were those of a paper manu-
facturer whose business was clas-
! sified as important to national
defense; Amilcare Pipemo Alcor-
so, one of Rome's largest depart

Italian representative of an
American typewriter concern.
HITLER CAUSE
QUEBEC HATRED
Toronto, (WNS)Alderman
Stewart Smith charged Belgian
Baron Ampin with disseminating
anti-Semitism in St. Agathe Que-
bec and that "the latest manifes-
tations of anti-Semitism are di-
rectly caused by Hitler hirelings
who play on local prejudice to
raise high the anti-Canadian
flame of racism and hatred."
In a speech to his constituents
following his nomination. Alder-
man Smith said that the anti-
Jewish demonstrations in St- Aga-
the recently can be attributed to
the activities of the Baron Am-
pin. "This foreign fascist," said
Smith, "operates Nazi propagan-
da from the Domaine D'Esterel
and under his influence local pro-
Nazis and anti-Semites are at-
tempting to force Jewish resi-
dents to sell their holdings for
ridiculously small amounts."
Alderman Smith concluded that
"It is essential for the well-being
of the whole Canadian people that
the Dominion Government imme-
diately investigate this /rat-hole
of intrigue which goes under the
name of the Domaine D'Esterel,
as well as the charge that Wer-
ner Haag is the importer of ra-
cial strife in the Laurentians."
The government meanwhile, has
initiated a new drive against for-
eign Jews who remained in Italy
after the March 12 expulsion date
although hundreds of Jewish ref-
Ugees from Germany were per-1
mined to enter the country on'
temporary permits. Informed
sources said that all foreign Jews
numbering about 3,000. will be
requested to leave Italy within;
from one to four weeks following
receipt of police orders.
It was disclosed that in a re-
port to Premier Mussolini, Achille
Starace, secretary of the Fascist
Party, revealed that race doc-
trine's was the subject given most
emphasis by the Italian Ministry
of Propaganda during the cur-
rent year. 2.000 lectures and
meetings on the subject were de-
voted to the question of racial
policies by the institute which is
a center of information on such
problems.
Laws passed last year, barring
Jews from employing non-Jewish
servants, were this week made
official by Italian authorities.
The measure had left open pos-
sibilities for Jews to obtam per-
mission to employ "aryan" ser-
vants who had been with them
for ten or twenty years or more.
The decree law of November 17,
1938 now prohibits the employ-
ment of non-Jewish servants by
Jewish families, and a fine of
1,000 to 5,000 lire will be imposed

Jewish Incitement

Jewish agitation in Bolivia will
not be tolerated, according to an
editorial appearing in the Govern-
ment's official newspaper, which
demanded that police take action
against demonstrations in the

holding that such incitement is an
insult to the country. Further
evidence of the tolerance of Pres-
ident German Busch's government
is shown in the granting of per-
nvssion for kosher slaughter in
Bolivia and the appointment of
Dr. Pomerantz and George Fried-
lander as directors of the new-
Social Security Department of
the Ijibor Ministry. Dr. Pomer-
antz is a refugee from Czecho-
slovakia and a former instructor
of mathematics at Prague Uni-
versity. Two refugee experts
were also engaged by the Agri-
culture Ministry.
The Government granted per-
mission for kosher slaughter on
application of the Jewish cen-
ter which previously had been
permitted to slaughter only fowl
according to Hebrew ritual. The
action led one newspaper to con-
demn kosher slaughter as unhy-
gienic and unhumanitarian.

It is believed that the evacua-

to be sympathetic with Czech as-

xious to minimize such sympathy
by moving them out of Czech
towns; and (3) Czech sympathy
for the Jews, such as was demon-
strated recently in Iglau, will be
checked.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(BY PHINEAS J. BIRON)
HEAR YE
The late Israel Friedkin, publisher of the Jewish Morning
Journal who just passed on, was seriously considering the es-
tablishing of a big English daily. Maurice Samuel may
take a flying trip to Euron? and Palestine and come back with
a very important book. Joel Lipsky, youngest of Louis
Lipsky's sons, is back from Oxford England, with a great deal
of that British saviorfaire. The Habima Theatre may come
to America after all for a season of its Palestine repertory. .
That article in last week's New Republic on the Jewish army
in Palestine tells cnly half the tale. Those New York po-
licemen who were much too nonchalant about disturbances by
Coughlinites will get a little surprise from the Police Commis-
sioner before long......

THE WORLD ZIONIST CONGRESS
Last Wednesday night 505 delegates from thirty-five coun-
tries throughout the world assembled in Geneva to hear Dr.
Chaim Weizmann, President of the World Zionist Organiza-
tion and the Jewish Agency for Palestine, officially inaugu-
rate the Twenty-first Biennial World Zionist Congress.
It is a Congress which is meeting three months after the
issuance of the White Paper and one month after the an-
nouncement by Colonial Secretary MacDonald that all Jewish
immigration into Palestine would be suspended for a period
of six months beginning October 1939. It is a Congress meet-1
ing one year after the establishment of the Intergovernmental
Committee on Refugees, and only a short time before the con-
ference called by President Roosevelt is scheduled to meet in
the White House to consider means for alleviating the plight
of the refugees.
The political problems confronting the Twenty-first Con-
gress in the form of the new Government policy can be accu-
ratey appraised only against the background of the Munich
atmosphere in Europe. Some Zionist leaders have seen such a
strong parallel between the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia
and the BritiFh White Paper that they have compared the po-
sition of Dr. Weizmann to that of Benes. Dr. Weizmann, thev
say, was as much a, victim of the policy of appeasement as Dr.
Benes. Though the parallel may be graphic and dramatic, it
is not altogether a clear-cut picture of what is happening in
Palestine. Dr. Weizmann is by no means in the position of
Dr. Benes. We must not forget that while the Republic of
Czechoslovakia was completely destroyed, Jewish Palestine re-
mains intact. In the case of Palestine the British policy of ap-
peasement represents a program of future crystallization. The
principle of reducing the Jewish population to a permanent
minority, on which the White Paper is founded, is in itself a
denial of the Belfour Declaration and a violation of the League
of Nations Mandate. But in any analysis of the situation, we
must not overlook the fact that the Jewish people have a
breathing spell in the form of a transition of not less than five
years during which the British Government has provided for
a minimum Jewish immigration of 75,000.
On the political horizon Jewish Palestine is beset by many
hardships and many systematic attempts to whittle down Jew-
ish rights. But the chief concern of the Zionist Organization
mnst now be with a program of practical endeavor designed
to strengthen and extend the Jewish position through coloni-
zation and economic development and make room for the Jew-
ish refugees who have been driven to the shores of Palestine.
The Twenty-first World Zionist Congress is meeting in an
hour when Palestine has become a desperate necessity for
hundreds of thousands of Jews. The extreme gravity of the
Jewish position in European lands will cut through all politi-
cal considerations to impress upon all delegates the supreme
need of united, vigorous action for the future.
Now. B'ani B'rith is under a
duty to carry out its responsibil-
ity. Our lodgethe strongest
Jewish organization in Dade
-ounty. and even the State of(s),mli th|. f0nowing items, whirl, make up Ih,. re* of

REFUGEE ROLL CALL
A big scheme connected with refugees is believed to be
the real reason for Postmaster Gnral Farley's trip to Europe,
during which he visited Germany and Poland. Jews who
try to nass as Aryans are no novelty, but officers of Jewish
emigration societies in many European cities now report that
well as to Sholem Lodge. So let I they are often approached by Aryans from dictator ridden

Millions of users feel that they get quicker, more pleas-

old-fashioned unpalatable preparations. That's why
ALKA-SELTZER is more in demand than almost any
other single item in the average drug store.
We recommend ALKA-SELTZER for the relief of
Gas on Stomach, Sour Stomach, Headache, Cold*,
"Morning After," Muscular Pains, and as a GargU
in Minor Throat irritations.
We really mean it.
Use ALKA-SELTZER for any or all of these discom-
forts. Your money back if it fails to relieve.
In addition to an analgesic (Acetyl-Salicjdate

contains alkalizers which help to
correct those everyday ailments

MAURICE GROSSMAN
CONCLUDES FIRST
YEAR AS DmECTOR
LEO LIPOWSKY LEADS
Y. DUCKPIN BOWLERS
Hello Folks: Today I have the
pleasure of starting my fifth year
with the Jewish Floridian as Y.
correspondent. I found no trou-
ble in deciding what and who to
talk about; and talking about
swell people brings up the name
of our Executive Director, Mr.
Grossman. If only Mrs. Sam
Specter (nee Ida Engler) were
here to offer an appropriate poem
so in my humble way I wish to
offer Mr. Grossman heartiest con-
gratulations upon concluding one
year as Executive Director of
the Y. M. H. A.
Never before in the 8 year his-
tory of the Y. has its progress
been so rapid as under his able
the basis of their personal merit
leadership. It would take at least
." issues to mention the many
splendid projects that have been
inaugurated during the past year
through the arduous efforts of
Mr. Grossman.
Quoting the very words Mr.
Grossman used one year ago:
"Gentlemen I can assure you of
one thing if I am elected as your
Executive Director, I will devote
my every effort talking Y. M. H.
A. and breathing Y. M. H, A.,
until the entire community be-
comes Y. M. H. A. conscious."
Yes folks thats exactly what
Mr. Grossman has done and is
doing with a greater determina-
tion than ever to see the realiza-
tion of a Community Center come
true. I feel certain Mr. Grossman
that these sentiments are also
the sentiments of every board
member and member of the en-
tire Y. M. H. A.Good luck.
By the way, thanks for those
swell columns while I was resting
or was I ?
