Nazis Torture Warsaw Jews Stockholm (WNS) — Warsaw %  lows who were ordered to report 'or enforced labor were made to undress and then were beaten with Iron bars until they were covered vith blood, according to a group of refugei s who arrived here last vnnk. Following the beating, the refugees related, the Jews were as signed t I heavy tasks and upon their completion Were ordered to return for further •'service" three Weeks later. The deaths of several Jews as a result of the beatings at the bands of Gestapo agents have been reported. The refugees stated fihat the persecution of Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland has become "increasingly brutal" and cited as an example the treatment accorded Jews in Lodz where Gestapo agents bound Jews by the aims and suspended them on a rope drawn across the street high enough to prevent their feet from touching the ground. The persecution has become so savage that a number of German soldiers assigned to the Nazi troops in Poland committed suicied rather than commit the duties given them, it was reported. Even Prussian soldiers, known for their hcartlossnoss. have been moved by the atrocities. Meanwhile, mass arrests among the Jewish intelligentsia in Warsaw continue. Tin. more 'or! Jews are reported to be making every effort to emigrate, but The Purim story occurred in the year 485 B. C. E. during the reign of Xerces, the Persian king in the saga of Mordecai, Esther and Ahaseurus. Purim is called the Feast of Lots because in Hebrem pu rim means to cast lots, and Hainan selected by lot the 13th day of Adar "on which to carry out his plot against the .lews. Although Esther, the heroine of the Purim story is traditionally supposed to have I,con selected as Queen when she won the first recorded beauty contest, some rabbinical commentators hold that she was I years old when she became Ahaseurus' consort. Because Of this rabbinical reasoning, the Hebrew equivalent of Esther is Hadassah, the Hebrew numerical value of which is 74. Some scholars believe there is a conniption between Esther and the heathen god.less of light a.-.d spring—Eastre, whose name is supposed to be the origin of the Easter festival. The name of God is not mentioned even once in the Book of Esther. Although Purim is a joyous festival, marriages do not take pla.-e on that day because of the statement: "We don't mingle^iappiness with happiness.' In the gerat code of Maimonides it is written that in the days of the Messiah l e only sacred books which will till be remembered will be t! %  Pentateuch and the Scroll of Esther, which is read' on Purim. There is an ancient tradition thai a Babyl nian scholar of the third century B. C Rabbi Samuel 1 bar Shilath, who was a highly esteemed teadher of children in' his day. was descended from Ha-! man. the Purim villain. Plays dealing with the story of Esther were very common in the Europe of the Middle Ages, but they were written by Christians, not .lows, ami were pell' ruled by members of the clergy. In some parts of the world, extremely Orthodox .lews oat turkej I >n Purim in memory of King Ahaseurus. Turkey reminds them of Ahaseurus because the turkey is called "tarnegol hodu" (rooster of India) in Hebrew and Ahaseurus is reputed to have ruled from India to Ethiopia.

The regulations were termed "injurious to Arab economy." Introduced by President Selig Brodetsky, the resolution charged that the ordinance was inconsistent with the terms of the League Mandate since it constituted a "measure of discrimination against a section of the population, which is a principle completely alien to LOUIS SEGAL Vice-Fresident American Jewish Congress and Secretary Jewish National Workers' Alliance of America, in Miami for Address the British conception of fundamental rights and citizenship."

Talking of autobiographies reminds us that Dr. Wei/man has an old contract with Harpers for his life story, but not even the first chapter of it has been written as yet PURIM In a world now shaken by the ungodly action of individuals drunk with power, I'urim, the Feast of Lots, which Jews throughout the world will celebrate this year. March 21th, has special significance. The "Megillah" tells us how. some 2300 years ago. the Jews of Pel ia were saved from the wicked plot of Haanian by Esther and Mordecai, who established the festival of I'urim as a day "of feasting ar.d joy and of sending Mishloach Manos one to another, and gifts to the poor." Through the centuries that followed. I'urim has been observed as a day of fun and feasting, and of remembering friends and helping the poor. So vital has been the tradition of I'urim. a festival representing deliverance from oppression, that Jewish history is filled with special Purims. Each of these local festivals commemorates relief from some threatened catastrophe. I'urim as a milestone in the Jewish year, will stand out just because world Jewry is grimly determined to gather all its strength and resources for constructive assistance to the victims of political, eco. nomic and social persecution. There is more activity among the Jewish communities at this time than ever before. This I'urim, celebrated in the spirit of Brotherly Love, will mark a special occasion for Jews all over the world. B'NAI B'RITH iimt NOTES by Harold Turk Our guest columnist for this week disappointed us and I went lamenting to Brother Abbott about having to write the column at the last minute and not having anything in particular to write about. "Why, Harold,' he said, "there are at least ten things of interest that can be included in your column this week.' "Fire away," I said. "Well, what about our first an. nual Theatre Party that was held at the Miami Beach Playhouse last Thursday evening?" The Theatre certainly is beautiful both inside and out and is built in a most colorful setting and if one passed the Theatre that night it would appear as if they were witnessing a Hollywood World Premiere. Technicolor pictures were being taken of the guests as they arrived, a la Hollywood. We even thought of having our guests imprint their footmarks and handmarks on the concrete pavement but somehow or other that didn't work out. The play was splendidly acted and was thoroughly enjoyed by everybody. To top the evening off, refreshments in the form of ice cream and soft drinks were served after the play was over and immediately after dancing was enjoyed on the stage. The scenery was all removed and Bill Baros of Miami Rug Co. (free plug) furnished wax congoleum which made a splendid dance floor. Special thanks should be given to Al Pallott as chairman of the affair, Rudy Adler, who assisted in the sale of tickets and arranged for the refreshments, and to the other members of the committee who cooperated to make the evening a success. Special thanks to Herman Waitsman our amateur photographer (who isn't so amateurish) for arranging and taking the moving pictures and incidentally those pictures will be shown at our next meeting. All of those who attended the theatre party will undoubtedly want to see the results of their screen test and those of you who did not attend will have a fine opportunity to see what it was like. Our next regular meeting will be held Tuesday, March 26 at the Miami Women's Club located at 1737 N. Bayshore Drive. The Ladies Auxiliary will hold their meeting at the same time and place. We are fortunate in having as our speaker at our next meeting, Rabbi Max Eichhorn. Rabbi Eichhorn has been connected with Student Union and Hillel Extension work for many years and has been schools or blame is pi where. For i! has come to pass hat as a result of a general laissez faire attitude on the part Of parents to their intrinsic job, the boy or girl of high school age with completely wholesome home! life, is the exception. Figure for yourselves the connection between this fact and tbv increasing number of mental cases and the prevalence of neurotic men and women. "But what is wrong with us specifically?" parents exclaim in indignation. Specifically, then, there are a umber of case studies which will serve as typical examples. A.—Betty's school work lias grown less and loss successful She day-dreams a great deal. Whe a teacher takes her eve gently to task for her lack of inshe cries. She has lost weilght. At tliis rate there is no alternative to her complete failure, probably to her leaving school to join the army of unemI, "You Bcold her for her "laziess." You consult a doctor about her health. He gives her a '"tonic." You can't understand why this doesn't solve the problem. Meantime you two parents continue day after day with your perpetual bickering and quarreling until the home is one deafening disharmony. And your favorite topic of conversation to friends is your anxiety about your child. B.—Florence has brought disgrace on your family! Lovely, carefully reared, perfectly mannered Florence! In her Senior year she has taken up with "the worst boy in school." Yes, indeed, you are justified in your alarm, for he has not only the charm of the handsome villain, possibly "misunderstood." but very likely something far worse. And after TAKE A LOOK Pity the Poor Nazis .... In their unofficial capital, Munich, the exclusion of Jewish physicians from practice has resulted in such an acute shortage of medical service that people sometimes have to wait weeks before a d ictor can find time to perform an operation .... If you scan the passenger lists Of incoming steamers you will find a large number of Dutch Jewish names .... There is a definite feeling in Holland that the land of Dykes is next on Hitler's program, and that Chamberlain will offer the Dutch no more protection than his won old umbrella*can afford ....

In Claire Booth's anti-Nazi play, "Margin For Error," one of the characters, who had been under the impression thai he was strictly "aryan" discovers that his grandmother was Jewish. .... In the cast of the play is Evelyn Waldo, who applied three years ago to Heinz Martin, director of the Berlin State theatre, for a job. Her contract was all signed when she was requested by the Nazi authorities to present her ancestry papers .... Examination of her background revealed, much to Miss Wahle's surprise, that her grandfather was Jewish .... She left Berlin immediately MEDICAL DEPARTMENT Winchell reports that when Dr. Emanuel Libman, the wizard diagnostician, met President Harding at the White House he told an acquaintance that Harding suffered from a coronary disease that would cause his death within six months—which is what happened .... Our priv&tte authority on the incident, however, tells us that Dr. Ijbman never met Harding personally, but made his uncannily correct diagnosis from a photograph .... All of which reminds us that when Lord Northcliffe, the late British newspaper magnate, was in New York some years ago he fell ill, and Libman was called in as consultant .... When he saw the doctor, Northcliffe, who wasn't exactly a Florence's three high school vears j phile-Semite, petulantly asked his secretary: "Who's that little East of nothing but shallow interest in side Jew?*' .... Libman overheard, but said nothing at the time boys, what a blow! But wasn't ^j ryrrri CTT TpiT The Nazis are most indignant at a trick that is being played on there some degree of interest ? She has "gone around" with several boys, but only briefly in case ? What happened ? You cized her harshly to every boy and you were cold to them when they came to the house. You practic. ally ran them out of her life, all because you are unwilling to admit her natural interest in the opposite sex and make normal provision for its expression. You believe all the smutty stories told by gossips about high school students and you don't even trust your own hand reared daughter. Well, she has taken her problems into her own hands to solve. You have failed her completely and tragically. associated with such work more recently at the University of Florida \Uhere he has done a splendid job.

It seems that soldiers and sailors returning home on leave find in their mail Biblical texts pointing out the wickedness of killing .... According to the Nazis, this is just a further ramification of the Jewish plot against them .... In other words, in this war which world Jewry has forced on Germany the Jewish Bible is used to weaken German resistance .... Goebbels, incidentally, has apparently just discovered the Anglo-Israel theory which considers the English one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, and is making the most of it in his wartime propaganda Quite a number of prominent Britons subscribe to this theory, of which Queen Victoria was an ardent exponent, tracing her descept back to the Biblical King David (after whom the former Edward VIII, known as Davy to his intimates, was named) .... Needless to say, this excuse to revile "Jewish England" is just what Goebbels has been looking for T hough, with true Nazi logic, he hasn't let this stop him from attempting to start n violent anti-British campaign among the Jews in neutral countries, presumably in the hope that the acute disappointment Jews have had with regard to Palestine lately will drive them out of Downing Street frying pan into the Nazi fire.-.

ROTHSCHILD Chairman of the Survey Committee of the American Jewish Committee The outraged feelings of those trying to combat anti-Semitism frequently lead theft to adopt methods that Work more harm than good. The following is simply an attempt to clarify the problem with a view to substituting reason for impetuosity. There are three dimensions to present-day anti-semitism. First, there i> th.it social anti-semitisiii which emanate! from the feeling that the Jewi are a people apart, different in their religion and cultural .background. This is the anti-scmiti-in which win mice thought of in conItertion willi summer hotels and clubs. It is a "prejudice" with a twothousand-year history, tied up with all kindol religious, psychological and social factors. The second dimension_ of nnti%  cmitism is the economic. When businetl is had and jobs 6carce, there is a general inclination to look for a scapegoat Vi itch-burning, waves of anti-Catholic feeling, and anti-alien movements sometimes result. As often as not, the blame is put on the Jew s. These two dimensions of anti-semitism, regrettable as they are, can be (I, all with only as part of a long range: sociological and economic program. Today, however, we are concerned primarily with a third type of anti-semltism, namely, that which is directly inspired by the propaganda pouring out of Hitler's Germany. In tit*hands of Hitler and his followers anti-semltism has become a political weapon, the emotional spearhead for a worldwide destructive movement. True Issues vs. False Thiaiitisemitic strategy is based llitl.r'assumption that man? |i\%are anti-scmitic. And it is t ... thai there is the ha-ic prejudice mentioned above. If now this latent unti->emitisin can be fanned into i lai ge troop is created which inot merely passively unti-semitic |,ul actively so. Such a group can lb i inmarshalled into all sorts of lemocratic activities. In this way mitism is used as a rabble, iting technique. The cry of a "Jew%  ;, ; mare" i~ rai'cd, and the paramount world issue is made to appear to be the issue of "Jews versus nonJews". Kverv right-thinking American reof course, that this is a false uud thai the true issue is that non-. r. % %  '•' i' sue* of democracy versus totalitarianism, decency versus indecency. The problem, then, is to substitute this true issue for the false issue which the Nazis and their allies are trying to establish. If •this is done, the Jews will find that all right-thinking men are fighting shoulder to shoulder with them in defense of the great heritages of religion, liheral education and the Bill of Rights. The Jews will be, in other words, on the side of the fence where they belong. What'8 Behind Smokescreen? What is required first is an exposure of the anti-scmites for everything they stand for in terms of unAmericanism. On the one hand, the leaders of the anti-scmitic organiza-1 tions themselves must be shown up in their true colors — in many cases gangsters, racketeers, and unprincipled demagogues. On the other hand, the doctrine of anti-scmitism itself must be discredited as simply a smokescreen behind which the Nazis carry on their subversive activities here as they did abroad. Such an attack on anti-semitism is not merely defensive but a real counter-offensive. Jews, however, often interpret "taking the offensive" to mean public replies to the arguments of the anti-semites. Feeling righteous indignation at being unfairly attacked they tend to shout the answers to the lies being spread against them. This, however, merely plays into the hands of those who are trying above all else to make the public Jew-conscious. Arguments that the Jews are not Communists, that they arc not war-mongers, that they are not un-American — these, though based on fact, only serve to stress the anti-seniitic issue itself, driving into the public con-1 sciousness more deeply than ever the issue of Jew versus non-Jew. The main problem is to keep the issue straight. The general who rhooscs the field of battle has alrca.h half won the fight; and the s.ii"'holds true in this matter of anti-semitism. Jews must stop being concerned so much with meeting this or thai particular attack, putting poultices on boils as they break out. What must be done is to make clear to the American people that anti-Jewish propaganda is simply the opening gun in a campaign to undermine the liberties of free men. The task is not an impossible one. With thought and energy, the Job can be done. This country wants no foreign isms — Fascist or Communist. The present wave of anti-scmitism ii of relatively short duration and can be pushed back in a period comparable to the period of its growth. All this may bo expressed in the following tentative guides: 1. Remember that decent people ate not anti-scmitic. Assume that your Christian neighbor is on your side. 2. Participate in general communal activities as a good American citizen. Remember that deeds speak louder than words. 3. Avoid apologetics and defensive "replies" which only serve to accentuate the false "Jewish" issue. 4. Do not make the attack on unAmerican groups a distinctly Jewish attack. Join forces with all citizens in keeping the seeds of foreign intrigue out of America. 5. Do not argue "racial" equality. The whole race idea only helps Hitler establish his "Aryan" myth. 6. Remember that special legislation to outlaw the enemy may be a boomerang to destroy the true freedom we all cherish. 7. Advise sincere but thoughtless friends not to air their grievances against anti-scmites in the law courts, where even a conviction may increase a scoundrel's following by enabling him to pose as a martyr, and where in any event he can reach millions through the press where otherwise he could reach only thousands. Democracy — not "Tolerance" 8. Beware the word "tolerance," which is weak, misleading and urnused. Keep the issue focused on unity and democracy M opposed to di-cord and totalitarianism. 9. Make char the truth that > nil oppose the Communists just as much as you do the NB218. 10. Do not exaggerate the menace of anti-scmitism. Vvoid building up bandwagon psychology that would make men believe that anti-semitism ithe big thing ol the moment This would be almost suicidal in iteffert. 11. Be optimistic and courageous. Do not lose heart. America has been in danger before, and this time wi'l come through as it has in the pat. Our duty is to keep cool, be realistic, and above all prevent the enemy from establishing the issue of anti-semitism as a blind for the real issue, which is himself. Kosher Wines for Purim Sudah Rev.

Weeks later. The deaths of sev-
eral Jews as a result of the beat-
ings at the bands of Gestapo

The refugees stated fihat the
persecution of Jews in Nazi-occu-
pied Poland has become "increas-
ingly brutal" and cited as an ex-
ample the treatment accorded
Jews in Lodz where Gestapo
agents bound Jews by the aims
and suspended them on a rope
drawn across the street high
enough to prevent their feet from
touching the ground.
The persecution has become so
savage that a number of German
soldiers assigned to the Nazi
troops in Poland committed sui-
cied rather than commit the
duties given them, it was report-
ed. Even Prussian soldiers,
known for their hcartlossnoss.
have been moved by the atrocities.
Meanwhile, mass arrests among
the Jewish intelligentsia in War-

Jews are reported to be making
every effort to emigrate, but

The Purim story occurred in the
year 485 B. C. E. during the reign
of Xerces, the Persian king in the
saga of Mordecai, Esther and
Ahaseurus.
Purim is called the Feast of
Lots because in Hebrem pu rim
means to cast lots, and Hainan
selected by lot the 13th day of
Adar "on which to carry out his
plot against the .lews.
Although Esther, the heroine of
the Purim story is traditionally
supposed to have I,con selected as
Queen when she won the first re-
corded beauty contest, some rab-
binical commentators hold that she
was I years old when she became
Ahaseurus' consort.
Because Of this rabbinical reas-
oning, the Hebrew equivalent of
Esther is Hadassah, the Hebrew
numerical value of which is 74.
Some scholars believe there is a
conniption between Esther and
the heathen god.less of light a.-.d
springEastre, whose name is
supposed to be the origin of the
Easter festival.
The name of God is not men-
tioned even once in the Book of
Esther.
Although Purim is a joyous fes-
tival, marriages do not take pla.-e
on that day because of the state-
ment: "We don't mingle^iappiness
with happiness.'
In the gerat code of Maimon-
ides it is written that in the days
of the Messiah l e only sacred
books which will till be remem-
bered will be t! Pentateuch and
the Scroll of Esther, which is read'
on Purim.
There is an ancient tradition
thai a Babyl nian scholar of the
third century B. C Rabbi Samuel1
bar Shilath, who was a highly
esteemed teadher of children in'
his day. was descended from Ha-!
man. the Purim villain.
Plays dealing with the story of
Esther were very common in the
Europe of the Middle Ages, but
they were written by Christians,
not .lows, ami were pell' ruled by
members of the clergy.
In some parts of the world, ex-
tremely Orthodox .lews oat turkej
I >n Purim in memory of King
Ahaseurus. Turkey reminds them
of Ahaseurus because the turkey
is called "tarnegol hodu" (rooster
of India) in Hebrew and Ahaseu-
rus is reputed to have ruled from
India to Ethiopia.

estine land ordinance restricting
the sale of land to Jews in Pales

blow at the Jewish National home"

omy."
Introduced by President Selig

PURIM
In a world now shaken by the ungodly action of individuals drunk
with power, I'urim, the Feast of Lots, which Jews throughout the
world will celebrate this year. March 21th, has special significance.
The "Megillah" tells us how. some 2300 years ago. the Jews of
Pel ia were saved from the wicked plot of Haanian by Esther and
Mordecai, who established the festival of I'urim as a day "of feasting
ar.d joy and of sending Mishloach Manos one to another, and gifts
to the poor."
Through the centuries that followed. I'urim has been observed as
a day of fun and feasting, and of remembering friends and helping the
poor. So vital has been the tradition of I'urim. a festival representing
deliverance from oppression, that Jewish history is filled with special
Purims. Each of these local festivals commemorates relief from some
threatened catastrophe.
I'urim as a milestone in the Jewish year, will stand out just be-
cause world Jewry is grimly determined to gather all its strength and
resources for constructive assistance to the victims of political, eco.
nomic and social persecution. There is more activity among the Jew-
ish communities at this time than ever before. This I'urim, celebrated
in the spirit of Brotherly Love, will mark a special occasion for Jews
all over the world.

NOTES
by Harold Turk
Our guest columnist for this
week disappointed us and I went
lamenting to Brother Abbott about
having to write the column at the
last minute and not having any-
thing in particular to write about.
"Why, Harold,' he said, "there are
at least ten things of interest that
can be included in your column this
week.' "Fire away," I said.
"Well, what about our first an.
nual Theatre Party that was held
at the Miami Beach Playhouse last
Thursday evening?" The Theatre
certainly is beautiful both inside
and out and is built in a most col-
orful setting and if one passed the
Theatre that night it would ap-
pear as if they were witnessing a
Hollywood World Premiere. Tech-
nicolor pictures were being taken
of the guests as they arrived, a la
Hollywood. We even thought of
having our guests imprint their
footmarks and handmarks on the
concrete pavement but somehow
or other that didn't work out. The
play was splendidly acted and was
thoroughly enjoyed by everybody.
To top the evening off, refresh-
ments in the form of ice cream
and soft drinks were served after
the play was over and immediate-
ly after dancing was enjoyed on
the stage. The scenery was all
removed and Bill Baros of Miami
Rug Co. (free plug) furnished wax
congoleum which made a splendid
dance floor.
Special thanks should be given
to Al Pallott as chairman of the
affair, Rudy Adler, who assisted
in the sale of tickets and ar-
ranged for the refreshments, and
to the other members of the com-
mittee who cooperated to make
the evening a success.
Special thanks to Herman
Waitsman our amateur photog-
rapher (who isn't so amateurish)
for arranging and taking the mov-
ing pictures and incidentally those
pictures will be shown at our next
meeting. All of those who attend-
ed the theatre party will undoubt-
edly want to see the results of
their screen test and those of you
who did not attend will have a fine
opportunity to see what it was
like.
Our next regular meeting will
be held Tuesday, March 26 at the
Miami Women's Club located at
1737 N. Bayshore Drive. The La-
dies Auxiliary will hold their
meeting at the same time and
place.
We are fortunate in having as
our speaker at our next meeting,
Rabbi Max Eichhorn. Rabbi Eich-

amples.

TAKE A LOOK
Pity the Poor Nazis .... In their unofficial capital, Munich, the
exclusion of Jewish physicians from practice has resulted in such an
acute shortage of medical service that people sometimes have to wait
weeks before a d ictor can find time to perform an operation .... If
you scan the passenger lists Of incoming steamers you will find a large
number of Dutch Jewish names .... There is a definite feeling in
Holland that the land of Dykes is next on Hitler's program, and that
Chamberlain will offer the Dutch no more protection than his won
old umbrella*can afford .... Ge man refuges in Denmark benefit
from a special arrangemi of the Hechalutz organization and th"
Danish section of the Women's international League for P i
Freedom 1 eby young men are trained oil pri-
vate farms, receiving free board and lodging from the farmers while

t imers, she claims .... In Claire Booth's anti-Nazi play, "Margin For
Error," one of the characters, who had been under the impression thai
he was strictly "aryan" discovers that his grandmother was Jewish.
.... In the cast of the play is Evelyn Waldo, who applied three years
ago to Heinz Martin, director of the Berlin State theatre, for a job.
Her contract was all signed when she was requested by the Nazi au-
thorities to present her ancestry papers .... Examination of her back-
ground revealed, much to Miss Wahle's surprise, that her grandfather
was Jewish .... She left Berlin immediately.....
MEDICAL DEPARTMENT
Winchell reports that when Dr. Emanuel Libman, the wizard diag-
nostician, met President Harding at the White House he told an ac-
quaintance that Harding suffered from a coronary disease that would
cause his death within six monthswhich is what happened .... Our
priv&tte authority on the incident, however, tells us that Dr. Ijbman
never met Harding personally, but made his uncannily correct diag-
nosis from a photograph .... All of which reminds us that when
Lord Northcliffe, the late British newspaper magnate, was in New
York some years ago he fell ill, and Libman was called in as consult-
ant .... When he saw the doctor, Northcliffe, who wasn't exactly a
Florence's three high school vears j phile-Semite, petulantly asked his secretary: "Who's that little East

The Nazis are most indignant at a trick that is being played on
there some degree of interest ? She
has "gone around" with several
boys, but only briefly in
case ? What happened ? You
cized her harshly to every boy and
you were cold to them when they
came to the house. You practic.
ally ran them out of her life, all
because you are unwilling to ad-
mit her natural interest in the op-
posite sex and make normal pro-
vision for its expression. You be-
lieve all the smutty stories told
by gossips about high school stu-
dents and you don't even trust
your own hand reared daughter.

into her own hands to solve. You
have failed her completely and

each,:them by one of the peace-loving German groups that, despite the dan-
criti- Ker involved, are still trying to carry on their good work .... It seems
that soldiers and sailors returning home on leave find in their mail
Biblical texts pointing out the wickedness of killing .... According to
the Nazis, this is just a further ramification of the Jewish plot against
them .... In other words, in this war which world Jewry has forced on
Germany the Jewish Bible is used to weaken German resistance ....
Goebbels, incidentally, has apparently just discovered the Anglo-Israel
theory which considers the English one of the Ten Lost Tribes of
Israel, and is making the most of it in his wartime propaganda
Quite a number of prominent Britons subscribe to this theory, of which
Queen Victoria was an ardent exponent, tracing her descept back to
the Biblical King David (after whom the former Edward VIII, known
as Davy to his intimates, was named) .... Needless to say, this ex-
cuse to revile "Jewish England" is just what Goebbels has been looking
for------Though, with true Nazi logic, he hasn't let this stop him from
attempting to start n violent anti-British campaign among the Jews in
neutral countries, presumably in the hope that the acute disappoint-
ment Jews have had with regard to Palestine lately will drive them
out of Downing Street frying pan into the Nazi fire.-. .
SIGN OF SPRING
There's a summer hotel, and a very swanky one, at Long Beach,
callfld the Lido, which for years applied the Arvan test to its guests
. Well, now that spring is here it's being bought, for the better
part of a million smackers, by a gentleman who once was denied the
privilege of vacationing there------And the subject of spring brings us
to the April issue of Living Romances, which you should get if you
want to know the details of sixteen years of Ludwig Lewisohn's life

American Jews Must Avoid the Nazi Trap
By Richabv~S. Rothschild
Chairman of the Survey Committee of the American Jewish Committee
The outraged feelings of those trying
to combat anti-Semitism frequently
lead theft to adopt methods that
Work more harm than good. The
following is simply an attempt to
clarify the problem with a view to
substituting reason for impetuosity.
There are three dimensions to
present-day anti-semitism. First, there
i> th.it social anti-semitisiii which
emanate! from the feeling that the
Jewi are a people apart, different in
their religion and cultural .back-
ground. This is the anti-scmiti-in
which win mice thought of in con-
Itertion willi summer hotels and
clubs. It is a "prejudice" with a two-
thousand-year history, tied up with
all kind- ol religious, psychological
and social factors.
The second dimension_ of nnti-
cmitism is the economic. When
businetl is had and jobs 6carce, there
is a general inclination to look for a
scapegoat Vi itch-burning, waves of
anti-Catholic feeling, and anti-alien
movements sometimes result. As
often as not, the blame is put on the
Jew s.
These two dimensions of anti-semi-
tism, regrettable as they are, can be
(I, all with only as part of a long
range: sociological and economic pro-
gram. Today, however, we are con-
cerned primarily with a third type of
anti-semltism, namely, that which is
directly inspired by the propaganda
pouring out of Hitler's Germany. In
tit*- hands of Hitler and his followers
anti-semltism has become a political
weapon, the emotional spearhead for
a worldwide destructive movement.
True Issues vs. False
Thi- aiitisemitic strategy is based
llitl.r'- assumption that man?
|i\%- are anti-scmitic. And it is
t ... thai there is the ha-ic prejudice
mentioned above. If now this latent
unti->emitisin can be fanned into
i lai ge troop is created which
i- not merely passively unti-semitic
|,ul actively so. Such a group can
lb i in- marshalled into all sorts of
lemocratic activities. In this way
. mitism is used as a rabble-
, iting technique. The cry of a "Jew-
;, ;. mare" i~ rai'cd, and the para-
mount world issue is made to appear
to be the issue of "Jews versus non-
Jews".
Kverv right-thinking American re-
of course, that this is a false
uud thai the true issue is that
non-.
r. .''
i' sue*
of democracy versus totalitarianism,
decency versus indecency. The prob-
lem, then, is to substitute this true
issue for the false issue which the
Nazis and their allies are trying to
establish. If this is done, the Jews
will find that all right-thinking men
are fighting shoulder to shoulder with
them in defense of the great heritages
of religion, liheral education and the
Bill of Rights. The Jews will be, in
other words, on the side of the fence
where they belong.
What'8 Behind Smokescreen?
What is required first is an expo-
sure of the anti-scmites for every-
thing they stand for in terms of un-
Americanism. On the one hand, the
leaders of the anti-scmitic organiza-1
tions themselves must be shown up
in their true colors in many cases
gangsters, racketeers, and unprinci-
pled demagogues. On the other hand,
the doctrine of anti-scmitism itself
must be discredited as simply a
smokescreen behind which the Nazis
carry on their subversive activities
here as they did abroad.
Such an attack on anti-semitism is
not merely defensive but a real
counter-offensive. Jews, however, of-
ten interpret "taking the offensive" to
mean public replies to the arguments
of the anti-semites. Feeling righteous
indignation at being unfairly attacked
they tend to shout the answers to the
lies being spread against them. This,
however, merely plays into the hands
of those who are trying above all else
to make the public Jew-conscious.
Arguments that the Jews are not Com-
munists, that they arc not war-mongers,
that they are not un-American
these, though based on fact, only
serve to stress the anti-seniitic issue
itself, driving into the public con-1
sciousness more deeply than ever the
issue of Jew versus non-Jew.
The main problem is to keep the
issue straight. The general who
rhooscs the field of battle has alrca.h
half won the fight; and the s.ii"'-
holds true in this matter of anti-semit-
ism. Jews must stop being concerned
so much with meeting this or thai
particular attack, putting poultices on
boils as they break out. What must be
done is to make clear to the American
people that anti-Jewish propaganda is
simply the opening gun in a cam-
paign to undermine the liberties of
free men.
The task is not an impossible one.
With thought and energy, the Job
can be done. This country wants no
foreign isms Fascist or Communist.
The present wave of anti-scmitism ii
of relatively short duration and can
be pushed back in a period compar-
able to the period of its growth.
All this may bo expressed in the
following tentative guides:
1. Remember that decent people ate
not anti-scmitic. Assume that your
Christian neighbor is on your side.
2. Participate in general communal
activities as a good American citizen.
Remember that deeds speak louder
than words.
3. Avoid apologetics and defensive
"replies" which only serve to accen-
tuate the false "Jewish" issue.
4. Do not make the attack on un-
American groups a distinctly Jewish
attack. Join forces with all citizens in
keeping the seeds of foreign intrigue
out of America.
5. Do not argue "racial" equality.
The whole race idea only helps Hitler
establish his "Aryan" myth.
6. Remember that special legisla-
tion to outlaw the enemy may be a
boomerang to destroy the true free-
dom we all cherish.
7. Advise sincere but thoughtless
friends not to air their grievances
against anti-scmites in the law courts,
where even a conviction may increase
a scoundrel's following by enabling
him to pose as a martyr, and where in
any event he can reach millions
through the press where otherwise he
could reach only thousands.
Democracynot "Tolerance"
8. Beware the word "tolerance,"
which is weak, misleading and urn-
used. Keep the issue focused on unity
and democracy M opposed to di-cord
and totalitarianism.
9. Make char the truth that > nil
oppose the Communists just as much
as you do the NB218.
10. Do not exaggerate the menace
of anti-scmitism. Vvoid building up "
bandwagon psychology that would
make men believe that anti-semitism
i- the big thing ol the moment This
would be almost suicidal in it- effert.
11. Be optimistic and courageous.
Do not lose heart. America has been
in danger before, and this time wi'l
come through as it has in the pat.
Our duty is to keep cool, be realistic,
and above all prevent the enemy from
establishing the issue of anti-semitism
as a blind for the real issue, which is
himself.

that Sunday School training for
our children is certainly not suffi-

therefore urge parents to see the
wisdom of actively participating,
and sending their children to the
Talmud-Torah.

of the faculty are now in the

Thank you, folks, for the lovely
things you said about Monday
night's affair. We are glad you
enjoyed it and thought it such a
success. However, it wasn't only
Jr. Hadassah that made the af-
fair such a'i outstanding event,
'ail of the credit goes to Jr. Ha-
dassah's guests.

their handsome escorts. The hors
d'ouevre table, banked with flow-
ers and ferns, was beautiful and
inviting with its lovely things to
eat. Mrs, Weinkle was a charming
hostess and we sincerely thank
her. Roadside Rest was most
courteous to us and everyone en-
joyed dancing in the outdoor ball-
room under the stars. Roadside
