The Nazi Formula
Information from Nazi-occupied Poland concerning the
plight of the Jews in these times is haphazard and one can only
speculate on the truth in the light of the stories brought
to neutral countries by refugees who managed to flee from
war zones following Nazi aggression.
Only partial estimate of the persecution and violence in-
flicted upon a defenseless minority is available from these re-
ports but even on the basis of this inadequate, information the
full weight olj the horror and brutality visited upon the Jews
in Poland already makes itself felt.
The Nazi propaganda machine has already been put into
action in Poland. It is a device whose deadly and vicious ac-
curacy has been made so perfect by Propaganda Minister Goeb-
bcls that the Nazis have seized upon it again to strengthen
their own purposes.
The Poles have been decimated and their country reduced
to ashes.'For the vanquished there remains only a blind rage
and a bitter desire for some form of retaliation. This the Nazi'
fully realizes. I1
The Nazi propaganda machine forestalls this desire by
bringing up its battery of] lies and, with horrifying frequency
instills a cruel logic up
ly-placed minoritythe Jews.
"Jews are your deadly enemies. The Nazis have come into
Poland to rescua Polish peasantry from the yoke of the Jew."
This is the formula which worked for the Nazis in Germany and
in other countries forced into the Nazi orbit. The over-handy
scapegoat is the Jew.
There is no indication that the Poles will be caught in the
mesh of the Nazi propaganda device with< which the Jews in
central Europe have become familiax. Their hatred of Nazism
is greater than their anti-Jewish sentiment. We can only hope
that Nazi designs in Poland will bog down in the ramifications
of their own eclectics. i -
The next regular meeting of
.Sholom IjOiIrc will be held on
Tuesday evening, November 11th
at the Y. M. H. A. building.
Your meetings committee chair-
man, yours fraternally, was suc-
cessful in securing as guest
speaker. Honorable Colin English,
State Superintendent of Public In-
struction. Mr. English accepted an
invitation by wire this week. In
his telegram of acceptance, Mr.
English stated that he would noti-
fy us of the subject of his address
by the end of the week. As you
probably know, this gentleman's
office is located in our State capi-
The coming meeting will be
designated as a "Father and Sons
Meeting." The A. Z. A. chapters
of Miami and Miami Beach are
expected to attend in full force.
One of the main purposes in hold-
ing this type of meeting is to
create a feeling of closer oc-op-
eration between Sholom Lodge
and the local A. Z. A. groups. An-
other important objective is to
assist A. Z. A. in increasing its
membership. By having fathers
bring their sons to the meeting,
new material may be added to the
ranks of the A. Z. A. As a matter
of fact, many mutual benefits can
be derived from a "father and
sons meeting." The meetings
committee composed of Brothers
Nathan Adelman. Burnett Roth,
Joseph Berman and your writer
decided that it would be a splen-
Bro. "Matty" Bandler of the
June Dairy Bandlers, Chairman of
the Membership Campaign is de-
finitely behind a movement to
waive the $5 initiation fee. Bro.
Bandler expects to present a
strong argument at the next
meeting showing the reasons for
making the change in our by-
laws. The "old guard" will prob-
ably oppose the amendment but
the new members will probably
line up on the side favoring the
proposed amendment. Bro. Band-
ler has been doing a wonderful
job as Membership Chairman and
is entitled to the cooperation of
the Lodge, especially on a matter
vitally affecting membership.
Co-Chairmen of the Student
Union Committee, Brothers Dr.
Charles Werblow and Sidney Se-
gall have called the first meeting
of this new school term of the
Student Union at the University
of Miami. This column is written
before the meeting held Thursday
evening at the University. Your
chairmen have secured the list of
Jewish students, 269 in num-
ber, now attending the local
university, and it appears from
the large enrollment that 1939-40
should be a successful year
for student union activities. The
first meeting was to be an or-
ganization meeting. More news
about this in your writer's next
TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(IT PHIMXA* J. MEON)
Have you read Trotzky's summing up of the Nazi situa-
tion? "Hitler is proceeding with the infallibility of a
somnambulist to the brink of the precipice,'' he says. And
did we tell you that the shofar wasn't sounded in London dur-
ing the High Holy days this year? The reason Was tftat
the British authorities were afraid the sound of the ram's horn
might be mistaken for an air raid warning. The latest
war economy measure foisted on the long-suffering Germans
is a regulation prohibiting male shirts from reaching below the
belt-line. That 1914 German war song with the refrain
"We have but one enemy, England," has been revived in the
Reich. That its composer was a non-Aryan by the name
of Lissauer is not even whispered in Naziland today. The
crystal gazers insist that the German revolution will start in
March 1940. ... On our own account we venture the predic-
tion that the next important Nazi to be purged by Hitler is
Franz von Papen, unsuccessful German Ambassador to Turkey.
. War experts claim that the success of the Nazi U-boata
is due to a new invention under German control. ... It seems
that! the new U-boats can kill their engines and run for hours
on some chemical ersatz which even the most sensitive instru-
ments of enemy warships cannot detect. .
We ore told that immediately following the lifting of i he
embargo hundreds of plan.- in this country will be d -
livered .to England and Franco by the device of self-transpor-
tation. Thai is. they will cross the Atlantic rn mass flights.
Some of tlie people who agree with Lindbergh's stand on the
neutrality issue cannot understand why America's Lone Eagle
didn't return his German medals to Goering after the sinking
of the Athenia. ... A certain Washingtonian we know found
his diplomatic tact put to a hard test the other day. ... He
wanted to present one of the Italian Embassy attaches with a
book, but to his dismay found that all the best-sellers are so
vehemently anti-Fascist that they would never serve his pur-
pose. ... To mention a| few of those h/e had to omit buying)
Ounther's "Inside Asia," Sheean's "Not Peace but a Sword."
Van Paassen's "Days of Our Years," Vance's "Escape,"
Wain's "Reaching for the Stars," etc., etc., all failed to till
the bill Which reminds us that Pierre van Paassen hu.i
had to cancel his lecture tour because of illness. .
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Who is the would-be candidate for the Presidency of the
Francisco........Fritz Kuhn recently shrieked before the Dies
Committee that Walter Winchell' real name is Lipschipz. ...
Winchell countered by announcing that he will' donate
$100,000 to any charity if anybody can prove that Lipshipz
was ever his name. ... A challenge to Jewish dentists is
thrown out by 82-year-old Anna Bogenholm Sloane, who claims
she has discovered an ancient Aryan formula, which doesn't
work for non-Aryar.s, for making a third set of teeth grow in
her month. Mrs. Sloane. who is planning to launch an
anti-Semitic paper, is a buddy of various un-Americans and
avowed Nazis. May we call to the attention of those Nazi
papers which call foreign correspondent H. R. Knickerbocker
'a "dirty, red-headed Jew" the fact that Mr. Knickerbocker
is a hundred per cent Aryan. .
SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE
Do you know that French warships stop Italian passenger
eteamers hound for America staid scrutinize the passenger lists
and the passengers themselves as well? From every boat-
ioad they select a feu dozen nude German-Jewish refugees,
take them off the ship and intern them in the nearest French

BETH DAVID LIBRARY
Mrs. Samuel Ehrlich. chairman
of the Beth David Library has is-
sued a call to the members and
friends to aid us in the construc-

this fine undertaking to our li-
brary, a committee will gladly
call for these booksphone 2-8650
LATE FRIDAY EVENING
This Sabbath will be known as
"Hadassah Sabbath". It is deplor-
able that throughout the preced-
ing years particularly in the
Greater Mami area when "Hadas-
sah Sabbath" is observed its
members are conspicuous by their
absence from the Synagogual
services. Even though you are
financially active in the Zionist
movement which is very com-
mendable; yet we feel that there
is a certain superficiality when
we observe the idalistic chaos and
absence from such a service.
Men and women, especially Zi-
onists, attend the "Hadassah Sab-
bath" at the Synagogue.
Services will be conducted by
Rabbi Max Shapiro and Cantor
Louis Hayman assisted by the
Beth David Choir will chant the
Mrs. Irvin Siege), representing
the local chapter of Hadassah, will
present the .'Highlights of Hadas-
sah Program". Rabbi Max Sha-
piro will discuss "The Truth
About Hadassah and Palestine";
in view of November 2. which
marks the 22nd anniversary of the
Balfour Declaration granting the
Jewish people the right to esta-
blish a homeland in Palehtine.
Immediately after the regular
Traditional services which are
held from 8:30 to 10:30 Saturday
morning, the Junior Congregation
will conduct the services .for the
youths and adults. It is a pleasure
to note the increasing attendance
of these services from week to
week. It is a pleasant delight to
behold the active participation of
both the youth and the adult of
the community. Parents particu-
larly are urged attend with their
children every Saturday morning
We pray that the Almighty
send an immediate deserving cure
to the President of our Sister-
hood. Mrs. Isador Cohen who is
