In many instances the meetings culminated in seri. ous clashes with the police and in the summoning of troops. The violence arose principa'ly in Tel Aviv. Haifa and Jerusalem, as police officers sought to break un the gatherings which grew up almost spontaneously in scattered parts of the cities. As a resu't of the difficulties last week-end. a curfew law was imposed unon Tel Aviv. It was assumed that the ban had been adopted to prevent any further expression of Jewish protest before the debate in the House of Commons. It is estimated that last Saturday morning 20,000 demonstrators took part in the protest in Tel Aviv alone. In that city, fully 160 men and women were injured in the conflict with the police, and of that number 60 remained under treatment in hospitals. A number of the police were also injured. In Haifa, another 200 demonstrators were injured. Delegations of women, of nurses, and of Hebrew University students joined with other Jewish citizens as demonstrations were held in Jerusalem. I-ed by the women, a group broke through the police cordon about Government House and successfully demanded entry. A deputation received by the Chief Secretary declared that I their sons would fight to the utmots for the preservation of Jewish rights in the Homeland. In Jerusalem, too, helmeted and shielded police charged the crowds with clubs. In this city ns well, the demonstrators stoned the police, but were forced to disperse, with 50 demonstrators wounded five seriously enough to be taken to hospitals and a score of police slightly injured. Two demonstrations developed in Haifa, one in the morning and one in the evening. The lattr meeting drew about 4.000 people who carried banners and nlarards. After trampling down the fences surrounding the Court of Law. the crowd attempted in R burst of frenzy to raze the building. This the police and troops together managed to prevent, but the inter ior of the structure was damaged in the melee. About 100 demonstrators were injured before the crowd was broken un. A nih f curfew was imposed, beginning at 7 P. M. On Sundav trnnna and nolice in cars equinped with firearms were I held ready in all cities. Although the curfew in Tel Aviv had gone into effect at mid-day on Saturday, women were permitted to buy food for two hours on Sunday morning. When the lives of shoppers turned into a women's demonstration against the land ordinances, however, the concession was withdrawn by the authorities.

Were reported to have died from exposure in newspaper dispatches here. The Jews, who were ordered by the Gestapo to leave their homes without advance notice and forbidden to take anv n' 'heir belongings, were crowded in*o onn cattle trains and deported to T uhlin En route, however, despite the freezing weather, they were quartered in unheated bams for the night. The following milling, according to newspaper renorts, the 200 Jews were found frozen t" death. The reports described the v sale deportation of Jews from other sections of Germany and Nazioccupied Poland. In many cases the deportees were compelled to walk dozens of miles, driven on by German soldiers and Gestapo agents. Five thousand were deported from the town of Alexander near Lodz, ani their early teens, have been tra' sporteil from Kalisz and other cities and shipped to military zones for the use of German soldiers. Numerous reports of criminal assaults on Jewish women in Warsaw have also been received here. National Leaders On Broadcast Federation Council Plans Conference Monev Cabled iPope Appoints To Buy Land New York (WNS)—As an initial step in the nationwide movement among the Jews in America to protest against the British edict restricting the purchase of land by Jews in Palestine, $250,000 was cabled by the Jewish National Fund in America to Jerusalem for the use of the Keren Kayemeth TIsrael, which is the Palestine Jewish land purchase and reclamation fund, it was announced. The money was remitted in a cable which conveyed the reaction of the Jewish National Fund of Ameri: to which hundreds of thousands of American Jews have during the past thirty-five years contributed the bulk of the resources for the Zionist land purchasing program in Palestine. The cable read: "Confident that American Jewry will couple protest against unjust land restrictions with increased determination to enable convent available land Immediately into footholds for boneless and as expression our solidarity with Palestine Jewry in this trying hour and our confidence in future Jewish National Home we are cabling you Bnm $260,000." Jew to Vatican Rome (WNS) — While Italymoved to enforce its new legislation restricting Jewish professional men and women, Pone Pius XIII announced the appointment of Professor Roberto Almagia. a Jew. to restore ancient maps in the Vatican. Pope Pius has also appointed several Jewish scholars to the Pontificial Academy of Sciences. Professor Almagia, prominent historian and geographist, was one of the first victims of Italy's anti Jewish legislation, having been expelled from the faculty of Rome University. The semi-official newsnaner. Giornale d'ltalia, reported that 82 Jewish lawyers in Rome, including a woman, Maria Luisa Levi, were disbarred. Only thirteen Jewish attorneys were exempted from the restrictions. Exemptions are granted only if the applicants have exceptional war records or for eminent service to the state.

House Probes Relief Bill Washington (WNS)—While the House Foreign Affairs Committee resumed its hearings on the Polish relief bill, political experts here were agreed that Congress would demand satisfactory assurances from the Nazi Government that the supervision of relief would rest entirely in American hands before the bill could be passed. Though members of the House Committee indicated that they were in favor of some form of relief for Poland they emphasized that United States representatives must be in charge of the distribution of all supplies purchased with American funds. The Committee is considering bills providing for a Government appropriation of 110,000.000 to $20,000,000 for Polish relief. To bring before Jew *h commuo.

He is an American. He hears an airplane overhead, and if he looks up at all does so in curiosity, neither irt fear nor in the hope of seeing a protector. ) His wife goes marketing, and her purchases are limited by her needs, her tastes, her budget, but not by decree. He comes home of an evening through streets which are well lighted, not dimly in blue. He reads his newspaper and knows that what it says is not concocted by a bureau, but an honest, untrammeled effort to present the truth. He has never had a gas mask on. He has never been in a bombproof shelter. His military training, an R.O.T.C. course in college, he took because it excused him from the gym course, and it was not compulsory. He belongs to such fraternal organizations and clubs as he wishes. He adheres to a political party to the extent that he desires—the dominant one, if that be his choice, but with the distinct reservation that he may criticize any of its policies with all the vigor which to him seems proper—any other as his convictions dictate, even if it be his decision, one which holds that the theory of government of the country is wrong and should be scrapped. He does not believe, if his party is out of power, that the only way in which it can come into power is through a bloody revolution. He converses with friends, even with chance acquaintances, expressing freely his opinion on any subject, without fear. He does not expect his mail to be opened between posting and receipt, nor his telephone to be tapped. He changes his place of dwelling, and does not report so doing to the police. He has not registered with the police. He carries an identification card only in case he should be the victim of a traffic accident. He thinks of his neighbors across international borders— •f those to the north as though they were across a State line, rather than as foreigners—of those to the south more as strangers since they speak a language different from his, and with the knowledge that there are now matters of difference between his government and theirs, but of neither with an expectancy of war. He worships God in the fashion of his choice, without let. His children are with him in his home, neither removed to a place of greater safety if young, nor, if older, ordered ready to serve the State with sacrifice of limb or life. He has his problems, his troubles, his uncertainties, but all others are not overshadowed by the imminence of battle and sudden death. He should struggle to preserve bis Americanism with its priceless privileges. He is a fortunate man. He is an American. B'NAI B'RITH T NOTES by Harold Turk Guest Columnist, Abe Aronovitz B'nai B'rith teaches loyalty and patriotism to our country. The highest conception of such loyalty and patriotism is a full understanding: of one's duty and an exercise of the obligations thereof. To attempt to expound the idea of utter selflessness in government, and that this attitude should be ever present is, in these materialistic days, like singing an opera in a beer barrel. Nevertheless. B'nai B'rith preaches the doctrine of undivided loyalty to our country, and likewise teaches that we should not seek of. but do for our government. Furthermore, wr are. always have been, and always will be. the apostles of peace. We are living under a Democratic form of government. This means a representative form of government. Its essential and underlying difference from all others is that it is the vehicle through which the people themselves rule. It is sensitive to the will and judgment of the people who. by their ballots, express themselves. Thank God a mil'ion times for the privilege of living in and being a citizen of those groat United States. Say a prayer tonight for the mental reliof you should have for being able i" educate and rear your children in the "Land of the Free." How much of humility wo should practice in our daily lives for the grand privilege of being able, unmolested by our govornment. to worship as we please! This being therefore such a democratic government, is it not significant that we stop and pause a moment and ask Ourselves, "What can we. as individuals, do to further the" aim of B'nai B'rith to be loyal to our country?" The least we can do is to exercise our responsibility as citizens and vote. So many people have such a misconceived idea of the import ance of casting their ballot. Their conception of being a good citizen consists of failing to steal v cheat, or default on debts. However, when wo Consider what would happen to this country if we were deprived of the opportunity to vote, surely it must be self-apparent that human and property rights can only be preserved by the exercise of our ballot. I have so ofter heard some misguided person say that advocacy of voting to our people is involving us in politics. No Jew residing in America is worthy of being a Jew unless he is a good American. All good American citizens should exercise the privilege of voting. Every Jew should see that, he and every person in his family entitled to register and vote, should do so. In this way will the high traditional spirit of our people of being loya' to the city, state and government wherein they reside be demonstrated. No person naturally should cast his ballot at the dictate of anyone hut on the hiarh moral plane expected of every American citizen according to his own conscience. If we will accord ourselves the dignity required in this most important demonstration of loyalty to our government, I am sure to some extent, anti-semitism will be diminished. (Continued on Page Five) Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (BY PHINEAS J. MIRON) OVER THERE Puzzling news items include the one about the Italian gold medal brevet, a high military decoration, being awarded to Lieutenant Bruno Jesi, counsellor of the Union of Jewish Communities of Italy, and the announcement that Hitler has awarded the Grand Cross of Distinguished Service of the German Eagle to explorer Sven Hedin, who is frankly proud of his 25 per cent of Jewish blood Rumor hereabouts has it that General Werner von Blomberg, former German war minister, has shared the fate of the late General von Fritsch, together with whom he was demoted a couple of years ago because of opposition to some of Hitler's policies Neal O'Hara claims that an inmate of an American jail gets more to eat than a "free" German citizen nowadays Subscribers to Punch are still chuckling over that Low cartoon which shows Hitler and Stalin playing poker, with Hitler saying: "I'll raise you a neutral" ... So hard up are the Nazis for "evidence," for home-front consumption, that America likes them that recently they cited the Pittsburgh Tribune as favoring their side Their error being that this paper doesn't like Nazism and has said so editorially, and in any case couldn't by any stretch of the imagination be expected to be pro-Nazi, being an organ of those ultra-non-Aryans, the Pittsburgh Negro community COMMENTARY The question that interests us is who was supposed t>> he supplying the $150,000 which the un-American Col.

We have often been asked by bewildered mothers, "What should I do when my child asks, 'where did you get me. mother'?" "Where did you get me, mother?" is a perfectly natural question for a child to ask. Yet s seldom given a perfectly natural answer. All too often mothers inhibited by tradition, convention and their own lack of earlv sex training, blush, stammer and give an evasive reply. Instead of giving the natural answer, "you grew inside of mother in a place just for you.*' many mothers mak" th" mistake of telling the curious child tliat he grew in a nest, a cabbage or some equally fantastic place, thus creating wrong ideas, which eventually cause confusion and distraught. If the child wants to know in what part of the mother er the baby grows, she shou'd show him her side and explain that her bones and muscles all around the outside of the baby's special place keep it safe and warm While it is growing. Although many children will find this explanation sat sfaitory. oth ers will keep up a barrage of questions, all of which should be answered in a natural conversational manner. Fven the child asks the same question repeated ly (as what child does not? a true answer should be forthcoming each lime. Eventually the child wi'l accept the new idea just as he does the many other facts he is learning daily and he will stop asking questions. After he has absorbed the knowledge, he should be to'd of the function of the hospital. Too often children regard the hospita' as a department store where babies may be bought and when they grow up into naughty little boys or girls—exchaneed or credited. If the question "Where did you get me?" is answered rrnthful'" the next question will always inevitably be: "How did I get out?" This, t">o, mav be pnswe>vH in perfectly natural and, at the same time, simple wav by comparing the passageway between the phr where the baby ero"- and th' oulside world with the tbjw' %  • %  hieh is a passageway betweer the mouth and stomach.

Honesty and directness in an swering questions on the suhjec' of sex will usually resu't in a lac'of sex consciousness in the child Therefore don't be shocked if yon young hopeful imparts his newl acquired information to his con vention-bound grandmother (whprobably will be shocked), and don't let it frighten you into treating the matter with secrecy thereafter, for the frankness of the child in discsussing the subject shows that he regards it as he should—as a perfectly natural function.

PRICE 10 CENTS
Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agen-
cyDelayed by CensorThe em-
bitterment of Palestine Jewry
caused by the announcement of
land regulations by the British
Government and the tension of the
Jewish population over the immin-
ent vote on measure in the House
of Commons were revealed thru-
out the country in demonstrations
in all cities. In many instances
the meetings culminated in seri.
ous clashes with the police and in
the summoning of troops.
The violence arose principa'ly in
Tel Aviv. Haifa and Jerusalem,
as police officers sought to break
un the gatherings which grew up
almost spontaneously in scattered
parts of the cities. As a resu't of
the difficulties last week-end. a
curfew law was imposed unon Tel
Aviv. It was assumed that the
ban had been adopted to prevent
any further expression of Jewish
protest before the debate in the
House of Commons.
It is estimated that last Satur-
day morning 20,000 demonstrators
took part in the protest in Tel Aviv
alone. In that city, fully 160 men
and women were injured in the
conflict with the police, and of that
number 60 remained under treat-
ment in hospitals. A number of
the police were also injured. In
Haifa, another 200 demonstrators
were injured.
Delegations of women, of
nurses, and of Hebrew University
students joined with other Jewish
citizens as demonstrations were
held in Jerusalem. I-ed by the
women, a group broke through the
police cordon about Government
House and successfully demanded
entry. A deputation received by
the Chief Secretary declared that
I their sons would fight to the utmots
. for the preservation of Jewish
rights in the Homeland.
In Jerusalem, too, helmeted and
shielded police charged the crowds
with clubs. In this city ns well,
the demonstrators stoned the po-
lice, but were forced to disperse,
with 50 demonstrators wounded
five seriously enough to be taken
to hospitals and a score of police
slightly injured.
Two demonstrations developed
in Haifa, one in the morning and
one in the evening. The lattr
meeting drew about 4.000 people
who carried banners and nlarards.
After trampling down the fences
surrounding the Court of Law.
the crowd attempted in r burst of
frenzy to raze the building. This
the police and troops together
managed to prevent, but the inter
ior of the structure was damaged
in the melee. About 100 demon-
strators were injured before the
crowd was broken un. A nihf
curfew was imposed, beginning at
7 P. M.
On Sundav trnnna and nolice in
cars equinped with firearms were
I held ready in all cities. Although
the curfew in Tel Aviv had gone
into effect at mid-day on Satur-
day, women were permitted to buy
food for two hours on Sunday
morning. When the lives of shop-
pers turned into a women's dem-
onstration against the land ordin-
ances, however, the concession was
withdrawn by the authorities.

Expulsion From Germany

Stockholm, (WNS)Nine hundred
Jews, including many women and
children, who were en rout" to the
Lublin reservation for Jews in
Poland after compulsory deporta-
tion from their homes in the Koon.
igsberg district of Germa y. Were
reported to have died from expos-
ure in newspaper dispatches here.
The Jews, who were ordered by
the Gestapo to leave their homes
without advance notice and for-
bidden to take anv n' 'heir belong-
ings, were crowded in*o onn cat-
tle trains and deported to T uhlin
En route, however, despite the
freezing weather, they were quar-
tered in unheated bams for the
night. The following milling, ac-
cording to newspaper renorts, the
200 Jews were found frozen t"
death.
The reports described the v
sale deportation of Jews from oth-
er sections of Germany and Nazi-
occupied Poland. In many cases
the deportees were compelled to
walk dozens of miles, driven on
by German soldiers and Gestapo
agents.
Five thousand were deported
from the town of Alexander near
Lodz, an rabbi, were forced to walk in
the direction of Warsaw Three
thousand Jews were expelled from
Knstantin on foot. The entire
Jewish population of Tushin were
forced to walk 40 kilometers and
were then told by Gestapo agents
to go "wherever your feet will
carry you."
Meanwhile, confirmation was
given here to the reports that Ger-
man soldierss are selling Jewish
girls in Nazi-occupied Poland, not-
ably Lodz, and forcing them to en-
ter military brothels. Girls are
taken off the streets and trans-
ported in official trucks to German
army-snonsored houses of pi
tution. Families of Jewish and
Polish girls, many of hem i>i
their early teens, have been tra' s-
porteil from Kalisz and other cit-
ies and shipped to military zones
for the use of German soldiers.
Numerous reports of criminal as-
saults on Jewish women in War-
saw have also been received here.

ment among the Jews in America
to protest against the British edict

by Jews in Palestine, $250,000
was cabled by the Jewish Nation-
al Fund in America to Jerusalem
for the use of the Keren Kayemeth

money was remitted in a cable
which conveyed the reaction of the
Jewish National Fund of Ameri:
to which hundreds of thousands of
American Jews have during the
past thirty-five years contributed
the bulk of the resources for the
Zionist land purchasing program
in Palestine.
The cable read: "Confident that

announced the appointment of
Professor Roberto Almagia. a Jew.
to restore ancient maps in the
Vatican. Pope Pius has also ap-
pointed several Jewish scholars to

House Probes
Relief Bill
Washington (WNS)While the
House Foreign Affairs Committee
resumed its hearings on the Polish
relief bill, political experts here
were agreed that Congress would
demand satisfactory assurances
from the Nazi Government that
the supervision of relief would
rest entirely in American hands
before the bill could be passed.
Though members of the House
Committee indicated that they
were in favor of some form of re-
lief for Poland they emphasized
that United States representatives
must be in charge of the distribu-
tion of all supplies purchased
with American funds. The Com-
mittee is considering bills provid-
ing for a Government appropria-
tion of 110,000.000 to $20,000,000
for Polish relief.

He Js An American
Reprinted from 'The Sun," New York.
He is an American.
He hears an airplane overhead, and if he looks up at all
does so in curiosity, neither irt fear nor in the hope of seeing
a protector.
)
His wife goes marketing, and her purchases are limited
by her needs, her tastes, her budget, but not by decree.
He comes home of an evening through streets which are
well lighted, not dimly in blue.
He reads his newspaper and knows that what it says is
not concocted by a bureau, but an honest, untrammeled effort
to present the truth.
He has never had a gas mask on. He has never been in a
bombproof shelter. His military training, an R.O.T.C. course
in college, he took because it excused him from the gym course,
and it was not compulsory.
He belongs to such fraternal organizations and clubs as
he wishes. He adheres to a political party to the extent that
he desiresthe dominant one, if that be his choice, but with
the distinct reservation that he may criticize any of its policies
with all the vigor which to him seems properany other as
his convictions dictate, even if it be his decision, one which
holds that the theory of government of the country is wrong
and should be scrapped.
He does not believe, if his party is out of power, that the
only way in which it can come into power is through a bloody
revolution.
He converses with friends, even with chance acquaintances,
expressing freely his opinion on any subject, without fear. He
does not expect his mail to be opened between posting and
receipt, nor his telephone to be tapped.
He changes his place of dwelling, and does not report so
doing to the police. He has not registered with the police. He
carries an identification card only in case he should be the vic-
tim of a traffic accident.
He thinks of his neighbors across international borders
f those to the north as though they were across a State line,
rather than as foreignersof those to the south more as stran-
gers since they speak a language different from his, and with
the knowledge that there are now matters of difference be-
tween his government and theirs, but of neither with an ex-
pectancy of war.
He worships God in the fashion of his choice, without let.
His children are with him in his home, neither removed
to a place of greater safety if young, nor, if older, ordered
ready to serve the State with sacrifice of limb or life.
He has his problems, his troubles, his uncertainties, but all
others are not overshadowed by the imminence of battle and
sudden death.
He should struggle to preserve bis Americanism with its
priceless privileges.
He is a fortunate man.
He is an American.
B'NAI B'RITH
T
NOTES
by Harold Turk
Guest Columnist, Abe Aronovitz
B'nai B'rith teaches loyalty and
patriotism to our country. The
highest conception of such loyalty
and patriotism is a full under-
standing: of one's duty and an ex-
ercise of the obligations thereof.
To attempt to expound the idea
of utter selflessness in govern-
ment, and that this attitude
should be ever present is, in these
materialistic days, like singing an
opera in a beer barrel. Neverthe-
less. B'nai B'rith preaches the doc-
trine of undivided loyalty to our
country, and likewise teaches that
we should not seek of. but do for
our government. Furthermore, wr
are. always have been, and always
will be. the apostles of peace.
We are living under a Democratic
form of government. This means
a representative form of govern-
ment. Its essential and underlying
difference from all others is that
it is the vehicle through which
the people themselves rule. It is
sensitive to the will and judgment
of the people who. by their ballots,
express themselves. Thank God a
mil'ion times for the privilege of
living in and being a citizen of
those groat United States. Say a
prayer tonight for the mental re-
liof you should have for being able
i" educate and rear your children
in the "Land of the Free." How
much of humility wo should prac-
tice in our daily lives for the grand
privilege of being able, unmolested
by our govornment. to worship as
we please!
This being therefore such a dem-
ocratic government, is it not sig-
nificant that we stop and pause a
moment and ask Ourselves, "What
can we. as individuals, do to
further the" aim of B'nai B'rith to
be loyal to our country?"
The least we can do is to exercise
our responsibility as citizens and
vote. So many people have such
a misconceived idea of the import
ance of casting their ballot. Their
conception of being a good citizen
consists of failing to stealv cheat,
or default on debts. However,
when wo Consider what would hap-
pen to this country if we were de-
prived of the opportunity to vote,
surely it must be self-apparent that
human and property rights can
only be preserved by the exercise
of our ballot. I have so ofter
heard some misguided person say
that advocacy of voting to our
people is involving us in politics.
No Jew residing in America is
worthy of being a Jew unless he
is a good American. All good
American citizens should exercise
the privilege of voting. Every Jew
should see that, he and every per-
son in his family entitled to reg-
ister and vote, should do so. In
this way will the high traditional
spirit of our people of being loya'
to the city, state and government
wherein they reside be demonstrat-
ed. No person naturally should
cast his ballot at the dictate of
anyone hut on the hiarh moral plane
expected of every American citizen
according to his own conscience.
If we will accord ourselves the
dignity required in this most im-
portant demonstration of loyalty
to our government, I am sure to
some extent, anti-semitism will be
diminished.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(BY PHINEAS J. MIRON)
OVER THERE
Puzzling news items include the one about the Italian gold
medal brevet, a high military decoration, being awarded to
Lieutenant Bruno Jesi, counsellor of the Union of Jewish Com-
munities of Italy, and the announcement that Hitler has
awarded the Grand Cross of Distinguished Service of the Ger-
man Eagle to explorer Sven Hedin, who is frankly proud of
his 25 per cent of Jewish blood Rumor hereabouts has it
that General Werner von Blomberg, former German war min-
ister, has shared the fate of the late General von Fritsch, to-
gether with whom he was demoted a couple of years ago be-
cause of opposition to some of Hitler's policies Neal O'Hara
claims that an inmate of an American jail gets more to eat than
a "free" German citizen nowadays Subscribers to Punch
are still chuckling over that Low cartoon which shows Hitler
and Stalin playing poker, with Hitler saying: "I'll raise you
a neutral" ... So hard up are the Nazis for "evidence," for
home-front consumption, that America likes them that re-
cently they cited the Pittsburgh Tribune as favoring their side
. Their error being that this paper doesn't like Nazism and
has said so editorially, and in any case couldn't by any stretch
of the imagination be expected to be pro-Nazi, being an or-
gan of those ultra-non-Aryans, the Pittsburgh Negro com-
munity .
COMMENTARY
The question that interests us is who was supposed t>>
he supplying the $150,000 which the un-American Col. Emer-
son promised William Dudley Pelley if ho would line up 15,00X1
pro-Nazis in this country Recently, by the way, a story
reached our ens that what started Pelley path was his dismissal from a lucrative writing post in Holl)
wood quite some years ago ... It soured him on the Jewis
movie moguls, and in his big hearted way Dudley soon in-
cluded all lews in his hate Winchcll declares that the rea-
son why Unity Mitford, long ballyhooded as Hitler's ideal i
Nordic womanhood, shot herself is that she grew despondent
when the realization finally dawned on her that the Nazis were
living to use her to win over English public opinion Have
you heard the rumor that the cancellation of that recent Cough-
hn broadcast was due not t-> political reasons or ecclesiastic
censorship, hut to the circumstance that the good Father, who
had just returned from a rat1 er lively excursion into Canada,
was incapacitated from facing the microphone? .
WE'LL TELL YOU
We did tell you, in a recent column, about that famous
painting by Max Band depicting the Nazi pogroms of 1938 .
It may interest you to know that the French Art Gallery,
where he is having a one-man show during the first three
weeks of March, has prohibited the exhibition of this painting
. This solicitude for Nazi susceptibilities by a French gallery
is beyond us Leon Bloom, who is no relation to the former
French prime minister, but one of our finest pianists and
musical pedagogues, is opening a school in New York ... He
will give ten scholarships each year to the most talented pu-
pils who study with him This reminds us that Friedrich
Schorr, the German cantor's son who is now with the Metro-
politan Opera Company, is planning to branch out as a teacher
of future opera stars Have we told you that Louis Adlon,
scion of Berlins Hotel Adlon family, plays the part of a bell-
hop in "Dr. Ehrlich's Magic Bullet"? ... And that Edward G.
Robinson, who in this picture at last has the type of role he
really likes, made his stage debut in a play put on by a group
of New York East Side youngsters who included Ira and
George Gershwin, Arthur and Irving Caesar and Jonah Gold-
stein? .

Friday at 8 P. M. Sermon by
Rabbi Morris A. Skolp on the
theme, "How Can We Recognize a
T/oynl Jew?" During the early
days when the Temple was being

his interest and cooperation by a
contribution of a shekel to the up-
keep of Hebraic life. -Is the pious
Jew the most loyal ? Is the "check"
Jew who writes his contribution
but does nothing else Jewishly
loyal? What are the standards
for Jewish loyalty in these days?

NOTES
(BY HARRY SCHWARTZ)
BUILDING ALTERATIONS
All members and friends of the
"Y" will be glad to learn that at
a recent meeting of the Governors'
Club and the Building Improve-
ment Committee of the "Y," plans
were submitted by Henry Hohaus-
er for various alterations of the
"Y" building and athletic field.
After considering these plans, it
was decided to draw new plans
and specifications and submit them
to contractors for bids.
Since the Board has not had the
opportunity to approve these, we
are not in a position at tfiis time,
to give you details. However,
there will be a meeting Sunday
morning at which time these plans
will again be considered and then
submitted to the Board. We hope
to give you more details in suc-
ceeding issues.
At this time we wish to thank
Mr. Henry Hohauser for his kind-
ness in- drawing the plans and
specifications. We need more men
of his type who will devote their
time and energy to the cause of
Youth Building-
"Y"-ETTES
As previously stated, this divis-
ion composed of girls between the
ages of 14 to 17 years have been
doing splendid work under the
able leadership of Mrs. Albert
Reisman.
Last Saturday night, a Leap
Year Hop was held at the "Y" by
the "Y"-Ettes and Dick Rosen-
berg was crowned "Bull of the
Ball." Quite a crowd gathered to
see these youngsters enjoy them-
selves and our congratulations go
to Mrs. Reisman for the able man-
ner in which, she is handling this
group.
Mrs. Reisman announces that
this coming Saturday night. March
9, this group will hold their Ping
Pong Finals. Everyone is invited.
JUNIOR DIVISION
At the last meeting of this di-
vision, held Monday night, tickets
were distributed for the Junior
"Y" Hop to be held at the "Y"
Sunday evening, March 31st. The
committee in charge has made a
novel feature for this dance. Name-
ly, the crowning of a King of the
Y. M. H. A. Many candidates have
been entered for this event and
at the time of this writing. Mr. E.
Albert Pallot, the popular Cassan-
ova of the Y. M- H. A. is in the
lead. Tickets are .35 stag or drag
and each ticket counts for 10 votes
for your favorite contestant. Get
busy, all ye male beauties and see
that you sell enough tickets to
make you the King of the "Y."
There will be a real coronation
ceremony and moving pictures will
be taken of the same. More de-
tails later.
"Y" FORUM
At the Thursday night meeting
of this group composed of girls
and boys from 18 years up, Bev-
erly Grossman gave a dramatic
recitation which was enjoyed by
everyone. A discussion was held
on current events. This co-ed
group is planning a rally to be
held on March 28th at which time
a prominent local political speaker
will be our guest.
All girls and boys interested are
invited to sit in on a meeting any
Thursday evening at the "Y" tt

BOY SCOUTS
This group is working on a new
project, now under the able lead-
ership of Herman Waitsman, the
new Scoutmaster. A public spirit-
ed citizen has given this group the
use of a large tract of land about
8 miles south of Miami and every
Sunday morning the Scouts so-
journ to that place with a view of
fixing up the land for camping
purposes. Much work has been
accomplished to date and our
hat's off to Herman Waitsman,
Stanton Halpert and the rest of
the Scouts.

civic leader and president of the
Governors' Club of the Y. M. H. A-.
announces that some time during
the month of April, there will be h
gala political smoker at the "Y"
in which every candidate running

previously stated, we favor no
particular candidate or party bui
as citizens who are interested hi
the public welfare we are asking
all candidates to appear so thai
persons present may make their
choice for themselves.
More details about this later.
GIRL SCOUT
As stated in the previous issue,
Mrs. Marion Shindell, former Cap-
tain of the Girl Scout Troop- has
left Miami for New Haven, Conn.
However, she has left behind a cap-
able successor in the person of
Miss Frances Ginsberg, who has
taken over this Scout Troop. We

and pleasure to this fine group of
young ladies.

THINGS TO COME
On Monday evening, March 2">

Mr. Grossman has asked the Ju-
nior Division to assist in this pro-
ject and a committee of juniors
consisting of Edith Roberts. Irma
Bernstein and Bernice Miller has
been appointed to assist him. More
details will be given later.
Elsewhere in this issue is a
splendid article by our good friend
Abe Aronovitz on the importance
of registering to vote. We urge all
of you to read this over and over
again and to register immediately
thereafter. The Y. M. H. A. is
non political but is civic minded
and as such deems it an honor and
a privilege for its members to ex-
THANK YOU
A servant worthy of his hire
that is the term that can well be
applied to the Greater Miami Fed-
eration -of Jewish Welfare Funds.
Within a period of less than twi
months after the campaign the
Federation has already paid half
of its allocation to the Y. M. H. A.
The Federation is the real servant
of Miami Jewry and all the efforts
energy and money that were pul
forth to make it the success that
it has achieved, has certainly beet
worth while because of the splen-
did results that have been ob-
tained. It is about time that the
people in Miami were made con-
scious of the fact that the Feder-
ation is an institution that all of
us must support.
Our thanks to Stanley Myers
president, and Miss Beulah God
win, executive secretary, for tht
splendid leadership they hav<
shown-

YOUTH GROUP ORGANIZED
AT TEMPLE
A new addition to the Temple
Family( which is already blessed
with a Brotherhood and a Sister-
hood, is the Youth Group of Tem-
ple Israel, organized last Sunday
evening, March 3rd, 1940. More
than 40 young people (mostly
boys were present at the organiza-
: tional meeting. The age range was
between 16 and 20, and the young
people elected a Council of ten to
formulate plans and policies of
the organization in accordance with
the outlines of the National Feder-
ati in of Temple Youth, which is
an afficiate of the Uni n of Amer-
ican Hebrew Congregations.
Interesting feature of this new
organization is that it does not
limit itself to Temple members, but
foil iwing the precedent of the Sis-
terhood and the Men's Club, wel-
comes all young people of Jewish
faith.

CHILD GUIDANCE
By Joseph A. Berman
(The writer will be glad to an-
swer any problem of his readers.
Write to him care of ttys paper.)
We have often been asked by be-
wildered mothers, "What should I
do when my child asks, 'where did
you get me. mother'?"
"Where did you get me, moth-
er?" is a perfectly natural ques-
tion for a child to ask. Yet s
seldom given a perfectly natural
answer. All too often mothers
inhibited by tradition, convention
and their own lack of earlv sex
training, blush, stammer and give
an evasive reply. Instead of giv-
ing the natural answer, "you grew
inside of mother in a place just
for you.*' many mothers mak" th"
mistake of telling the curious
child tliat he grew in a nest, a cab-
bage or some equally fantastic
place, thus creating wrong ideas,
which eventually cause confusion
and distraught. If the child wants
to know in what part of the mother
er the baby grows, she shou'd
show him her side and explain
that her bones and muscles all
around the outside of the baby's
special place keep it safe and
warm While it is growing. Al-
though many children will find
this explanation sat sfaitory. oth
ers will keep up a barrage of
questions, all of which should be
answered in a natural conversa-
tional manner. Fven the child
asks the same question repeated
ly (as what child does not? a true
answer should be forthcoming each
lime. Eventually the child wi'l
accept the new idea just as he
does the many other facts he is
learning daily and he will stop
asking questions.
After he has absorbed the
knowledge, he should be to'd of
the function of the hospital. Too
often children regard the hospita'
as a department store where ba-
bies may be bought and when they
grow up into naughty little boys
or girlsexchaneed or credited.
If the question "Where did you
get me?" is answered rrnthful'"
the next question will always in-
evitably be: "How did I get out?"
This, t">o, mav be pnswe>vH in -
perfectly natural and, at the same
time, simple wav by comparing
the passageway between the phr
where the baby ero"- and th'
oulside world with the tbjw'
hieh is a passageway betweer
the mouth and stomach. Thcr-
would he. undouhtedlv. less fei
of childbirth today if such p
straightforward explanation o*
the process of being born had no'
been taboo a generation ago.
Honesty and directness in an
swering questions on the suhjec'
of sex will usually resu't in a lac'-
of sex consciousness in the child
Therefore don't be shocked if yon
young hopeful imparts his newl
acquired information to his con
vention-bound grandmother (wh-
probably will be shocked), and
don't let it frighten you into treat-
ing the matter with secrecy there-
after, for the frankness of the
child in discsussing the subject
shows that he regards it as he
shouldas a perfectly natural
function.
