For Federation Campaign
"Give More.... The Needs
Are Greater," Capacity Crowd Told
Addressing an overflowing au- j
dience at Temple Israel last Wed-
nesday night, which filled every
available seat, and had people
standing in the aisles and- outer
halls, Stephen A. Wise, in a bril-
liant dramatic appeal sounded the
keynote for the forthcoming; 1940
Federati n drive, which will start
"Give, Give your utmostg've
because the needs are greater th <
year than ever before." was the
message Dr. Wise urged unon thci
Jewish Community of Greater
Miami in a fervent plea, wherein
he stressed conditions affecting
the Jews all over the W rid. As
greatly laud ng Roosevelt, and
naming him a= one of the greatest
Presidents and human tartans this
country has ever had. and who is
always active and in the forefront
for the cause of civilization, so
greatly did he condemn H tier and
Stalin, terming them images of
men. but actually nothing more
than beasts. He c ted numerous
uncivilised acts that were made
against the Jews in Nazilnnd. the
lack of food and bare necessities
of life, of Ghettos, of destruction
and seizure of property, of the con-
stant terror facing them. He
spoke of Palestine, wherein he be-
1 eves lies a great future for the
Jewish people, despite the recent
issuance of the "White Paper" by
With "Federation supporting
thirty-eight worthwhile, needing
organizat ons, Greater Miami Jew-
ry cannotmust notwill not fail
in this tremendous undertaking."
Dr. Wise said re-emphisizing "that
the need'- are greater this year
than ever before."

WILNO (WNS)Continued ex-
cesses against Jews in Nazi-oc
copied Poland were reported here
by reliable sources which told of
Nazi measures designed to har
rass Jews for the slightest "prov-
ocation." Executions, fines, ar-
rests, deportations and expul-
sions have decimated Jewish com-
munities in Polish cities and
towns controlled by the Nazis.
A trustworthy source reported
the execution of 53 Jews in the
Nalewki quarter of Warsaw, ac-
cused of hiding a Jew who al-
legedly shot a Polish policeman.
A "fine" of 300.000 zlotys ($60.-
00 at pre-war rates) was also im-
posed on the Jewish community
which paid the levy in the allott-
ed time of three days. Further-
more, the advices said, the Nazis

On White Paper
LONDON' (WNS)Prior to his
departure for the United States

officials that no action regarding
the Palestine White Paper would
be taken during his absence from
London, it was learned here.
Dr. Weizmann, president of the
Jewish Agency for Palestine and
the World Zionist Organization, is
expected to inform American
Zionist leaders of all developments
in the political situation, the prin-
cipal purpose of his visit, however,
being to secure increased economic
support for the Jewish homeland
from American Jews.

THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN
TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(BY PHINEAS J. BJJtON)
WE'RE TELLING YOU
Finest piece of indirection we have seen in u long time
conies from the pen of an American correspondent in a Euro-
pean country, who writes: "There is plenty of coal here and
the people are happy and loyal to the regime; almost as much
coal and loyalty and happiness as in the llarlan, Kv\, coal
fields" That's telling the censor where to get off .
AVinchell has a new definition of dictatorship, reading: "A
place where public opinion can't even he expressed privately"
. Xeal O'llara points out that when Hitler clamors for more
living space for the Germans he forgets to explain why Goering's
vast estates and hunting lodges, which could accommodate tens
of thousands of people, are vcrhoten territory for the German
masses Herbert Kline and Pete Mayer have hrought hack
from Europe a splendid film .they Shot in England, Poland and
Danzig ... It will he called "Lights Out in Europe" and is
a most human story of pre-war days and of the first days of
it he Nazi Blitzkrieg in Poland Did you notice that the
Jewish "White Book" published by the World Jewish Congress
revealed that the Nazis had planned large-scale programs
throughout Germany after the attempt on Hitler's life,
hut canceled them because of pressure brought to hear by the
Soviet Ambassador at Berlin? The laugh of the week is
provided by one George Trauler's revelation that Hitler's
.schoolmates in Braunau regarded the future Fuehrer as a Jew
. "I'm ashamed to say it now," Trauler confessed, "But wc
kids used to taunt Adolf for being a Jew-boy That would
make him white with fury" .
DID YOU KNOW
The first address in the new Honolulu synagogue, the first
Jewish house of worship in the mid Pacific area, was delivered
last summer by Lewis Browne, who was in the Islands giving
a lecture course at Hawaii University Browne, from whom
a new book should be due soon, is the fellow whom H. G. Wells
considers the best interpreter of Jewish history ... In March
he will give a series of lectures at Columbia University .
Those who object to the coming of refugees to this country
should read the story of Fritz Casten, who had become a
millionaire in the grocery business in Berlin Casten arrived
in Amerca wth only $500 left of all his fortune, and with this
nest-egg built up a prosperous business in four years .
Recently he diedand left $20,000 to the City of New York, as
a token of gratitude for the hospitality and opportunity it had
given him ... A group of European refugee stage artists is
launching "The Theatre in Exile" in New York They
hope to make it a permanent organization ... If it hadn't been
for the personal opposition of President Roosevelt there would
by now be a law demanding that everybody in the country
be fingerprinted at regular intervals .
A fine bunch of scallions goes to Abbot Chao-Kung, better
known as Ignatius Trebitsch Lincoln, whose life as an inter-
national spy is known the world over Born (we arc
ashamed to confess) a Hungarian Jew, he is now head of
the "Tibetan Buddhist supreme masters" in Shanghai, and
though he threatens Europe with a mysterious doom if its
governments don't stop warring, he defends the Japanese
onslaught on China Add to your list of anti-Semitic organ-
izations the Federation for Nordic Revival .. Ostesibly it is
simply an organization for Americans of Scandinavian descent.
but its official slogan is "to defend Aryan culture and to
build a great American monument of liberation under the
swastika" All of which brings us to the question: Why
is there a swastika near the Jersey side of the Lincoln Tunnel?
THIS AND THAT
Abe Goldberg, Hebrew and Yiddish writer and Zionist, is
now at work on a 700-page opus in English, which wiU contain
seventy-five essays on the most representative contemporary
Jewish writers, artists, scientists, philanthropists and other
public figures How ephemeral fame is was illustrated when
the reports of the death of Dr. Leo Wiener, the philologist.
jdid not mention that he was the father of one of the most
amazing infant prodigies of the country, Norbert Wiener, who
graduated from college at the age of fourteen and achieved
his Ph.D. in mathematics at the age of eighteen Incidentally,
how come that Dr. Weiner was buried from a Unitarian
Church? H. M. Warner, who's the chairman of the Holly-
wood commnuity chest fund, is indignant because the motion
picture stars don't contribute enough .

VOLUME 12 NUMBER 52
For the past several weeks the Jewish Floridian has been
devoting a great portion of its columns to news about Federa-
tion and its forthcoming 1940 Campaign for welfare funds.
Whether or not it has succeeded in making Greater Miami
Federation conscious, whether sufficient interest and enthus-
iasm has been aroused to make the drive the success it must
be, whether the Jewish community has been awakened enough
to realize their duty to themselves and their fellow-Jews, is
something that remains to be seen.
Too much emphasis cannot be placedwe cannot repeat
enoughthe success with unity, the benefits by co-operation,
the advantages of self-protection, the joy received by serving
those unable to serve themselvesA fate decreed not by their
own hands, and a fate unless we take heed, we too, may have
The Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds
has set a budget of $109,850 as a fair and minimum share
which must be raised in order to barely cope with the present
day "greater needs" for local and overseas causes. It is
but natural when we think of the present tragic plight of our
fellow Jews abroad, we think mostly in terms of their physical
suffering of hunger, starvation, rooflessness and nakedness.
We reprint a few headlines picked at random from our news
"Congress 'White Book" Charges 250,000 Jews Wiped
Out in Nazi Poland; One Million Polish Jews Completely
Pauperized By Nazis."
"Nazis Officially List 120,000 Jews Dead in Poland;
60,000 Die From Epidemics in Concentration Camps."
"Refugee Confirms Reports of Rapings by Nazi Soldiers."
"Expulsion of Austrian Jews Set For Jan. 1st; Excesses
"Soviet Sentences Rabbi to 9 Years Imprisonment."
The upheaval as evidenced by the above has created a
situation the consequences of which may have tragic and dis-
asterous effects upon the future of World Jewry as a whole.
The war has intensified the needs of our pople. Three million
Jews in Poland alone, have been caught in the vise of Hitlerism.
Federation in its forthcoming campaign is striving to
take care of our share of this sacred obligation.
Max L. Berges, dedicating his book "Cold Pogrom,"
to aroused Jewry writes, "You, too, must do your share in
the world wide struggle against injustice, intolerance, and
against the suppression of all personal liberties in which we
as ardent democrats and civilized beings believe."
Need More Be Said?
Dr. Abram L. Sachar. National
Director of the Hillel Foundati na
sponsored by B'nai B'rith. is in
our midst on a temporary visit.
Ix)cal Ben Briths are very fortun-
ate, indeed, in having Dr. Sachar
visit us at this time.
Dr. Sachar is a national figure
in Jewish life, and his brilliant per-
sonality has been a vital force in
the growth and development of
B'nai B'rith nationally. Under the
able leadership and guidance, the
vision and foresight of this great
man, the expansion of the Hillel
Foundation Program has made
rapid strides during the past dec-
Sholom Lodge has arranged a
breakfast at the Whitehouse Hotel,

for Sunday morning. December
31st at 10:30, at which time Dr.
Sachar has consented to address
the local group. Every brother in
Sholom Lodge should take advant-
age of this opportunity. Dr. Sachar
former head of the English His-
tory Department at the University
of Illinois, was regarded as the
most brilliant lecturer on the fac-
ulty at that institution. Brothers,
