Active Leader
Enters Primary
Tallahassee.In announcing for
Delegate to the National Demo-
cratic Convention from the State-
at-Large, Al B. Block of Tallahas-
see, stated:
"It is my firm conviction that
persons offering to represent
ida Democracy at the Nation-
al Convention should tell the peo.
pie just how they stan,I relative
to matl is of general policy so
"'it when our people go to the
to select their Delegates
there will be no misunderstanding
1 question as t i just who stands
for what. Following that convic
lion, I want the people to know
thai I stand four-square behind
'iir great President. Franklin De-
lano RooseveL, and his policies.
No man in American history, in
my opinion, has striven harder orj
more sincerely for the welfare of
the great mass of our people than
lice Grossman, executive director
of the Y. M. H. A., followed by
the singing of "God Bless Amer-
ica. led by Cantor A. Keller of
Chicago. Mr. E. Albert Pallot,
president of the Y. M. H. A., was
then introduced and acted as mas-
ter of ceremonies for the after-
noon. Brief talks were made by
Mr. H. M. Drevich and Mrs. Wm.
('lein, presidents of the Synagogue
and its Auxiliary, respectively.
The main address was made by
Mr. Stanley C. Myers, president
of the Greater Miami Federation
of Jewish Welfare Funds, who
stressed the importance of spir-
itual growth in this area. He was
followed by Rabbi Abraham A.
Kellner, spiritual leader of the
Congregation, who made a stir-
rig appeal through which was re-
alized the raising of a large sum.
The honor of breaking ground was
purchased by Mr. Philip Berko-
witz who. with Rabbi Kellner fol.
lowed by officers and members of
the boards, led the procession to
the place at which the rite was
performed, while the audience
stood at attention. The singing
of Hatikvah concluded the pro-
gram.
The silver plated shovel suitably
engraved was donated by Mr. and
Mrs. Wm. Creagh of the Creagh
Co. Jewelers.
Italy Plans
Jewish Riddance
Rome iWXSi Following It-
aly's moves to rid the professions
of all Jews, Premier Iionito Mus-
solini has indicated that he will
soon launch a campaign to force
Italy's 40,000 Jews out of the
country, it was learned from us-
ually reliable sources here.
The first tangible step in the
new anti-semitic drive was seen in
the Government's recall of a pre-
vious order banning Jewish emi-
gration to other countries. Sev-
eral weeks ago Rome authorities
called in all passports held by
Jews.
It was reported that the Gov-
ernment now wishes to have Jews
emigrate from Italy at the rate of
3,500 a year. At this rate, it is
estimated, the entire Jewish popu-
lation will have left Italy within
eleven years.
The Italian quota for immigra-
tion to the United States is 5,200
yearly, far in excess of 3.500.
There is no similarity between the
situation confronting Italian Jews
and the predicament in which
Jews of Greater Germany find
themselves since there are more
emigration possibilities open to
Italian Jews. In recent years
Italian Jews have emigrated in
groups to South America and
there are large colonies of Italian
lews in Palestine and the Belgian
Congo.
Young Demos
Schedule Rallies
Miami. March 29. Florida's
Young Democrats have scheduled
two statewide radio broadcasts to
familiarize voters with the plat-
forms of candidate's for United
States Senate, g vernor. attorney
general, state comptroller am
state treasurer.
William W. Shayne of Miami
state chairman of the Young
Democrats' activities, said the
first broadcast is planned from
Orlando on March 30. an.l the
later one will center at Miami or.
April 27. Included in the hook-
ups will be radio stations in
Tampa. Jacksonville and West
Palm Beach.
The Young Democrats want ti
help give Floridians as widespread
an opportunity as possible for
weighing the merits of the vari-
ous candidates for these important
offices. Mr. Shayne said.
Mr. Shayne emphasized that
the projects are entirely a non-
profit service, undertaken solely
because of the Young* Demorcats'
interest in good government.
Epidemic Sweeps
Lublin Jews
Amsterdam (WNS)A wide-
spread epidemic has been taking
a fearful toll in the Lublin Jew-
ish "reservation" as a result of
the overcrowding, lack of fresh
food and medical supplies, it was
reliably learned here.
Medical circles frequently warn-
ed that an epidemic is inevitable
under current conditions in the
reservation- In the face of these
warnings Nazi authorities have
continued to send Jews from all
parts of Greater Germany to that
small area outside of Lublin which
has been designated as the "Jew-
ish reservation."
The epidemic was held in check-
while the cold weather c< ntinuod
but the arrival of spring and
warm weather precipitated a new
outbreak which is rapidly deci-
mating the population. Nazi au-
thorities, it was reported, have re-
quested Berlin to discontinue the
practice of expelling Jews from
other parts of Germany to Lublin
but this request has been ignored.

when it is engaged in daily pray-
ers for the victory of the western
democracies. As a tiller of the
soil in the Holy Land for the past
fifty years and as one of the pio-
neers in Jewish colonization ih
that country, I belong to those
who believe that it is an act of
Providence that the Jews and
Arabs have been thrown together
and that it is possible for the two
peoples to live in amity. I know
the country and the two peoples,
particularly those who till its soil,
and I say that the land regula-
tions prohibiting Arabs from sell-
ing and Jews from buying land
in one zone and restricting land
transfer in another is a fatal er-
ror and a sin toward the country
as a whole."

The above map of Palestine, tentatively drawn, is based upon
an unofficial analysis of the Palestinian land edict which divides
tfhe country into three zones for the purpose of land purchase.
The free zone embraces, including the land holdings already in
Jewish possession, an area of approximately 7,000,000 dunams ex-
clusive of the Negeb.

SHIRK NOT YOUR DUTY
In ihe I":<* elections, the American people save convincing repu-
diation t< anti-Semitism, Payne Ratner was elected Governor of Kan-
sas despite a scurrilous drive waged against him on the ground he
was hair Jewish- Herbert II. Lehman as re-elected Governor of New-
York in the face of an intense whispering campaign. The anti-Semitic
Gerald Winrod was snowed under when he sounht the senatorial nomi-
nation in Kansas.
The coming campaign shows signs of being one of the most heated
in years. Every conceivable issue will be raised in the hopes of vic-
tory. One of the issues which must be kept out is race and religion;
the experience of 1938 should teach the misguided supporters of any
candidate that the people will not heed an appeal made on the basis of
bigotry.
"*We have seen waves of prejudice before, but they have never
found any fertile soil in American institutions, and after a brief popu.
larity have died away," stated a popular statesman recently. The
United States of America has always been, and must remain, the citadel
of religious freedom and religious toleration.
THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN is not espousing the cause of any can-
didate for office. IT IS CHAMPIONING THE CAUSE OF DECENT
CITIZENSHIP. At this time, when the benefits of the principles of
Freedom, Tolerance and the Safeguards of Democracy are so self-evi-
dent, we cannot help but urge upon every Jewish resident who is quali-
fied to vote, but ,has not yet registered, that he is truly shirking his
duty unless he has fulfilled the rights of suffrage which he possesses
and which in fairness and decency he should exercise. We owe it to
ourselves as citizens and Jews to register immediately!

NOTES
by Harold Turk
Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith
has undertaken and accomplished
many worthwhile things but there
s none of which it has reason to
be more proud than its Student
Union Activities. When the sit-
uation was brought to its atten-
tion regarding the students of the
University of Florida at Gaines-
ville, Florida, and of the Florida
State College for Women at Tal-
lahassee, Florida, although they
were far in distance from its
sphere of activity, it came forward
with the necessary work that has
made the entire State of Florida
justly proud of Sholem Lodge,
Through the inspiration and un-
tiring efforts of Brother Harry
Simonhoff and others, the neces-
sary funds were contributed by
our Lodge and a full time Rabbi
was engaged to minister to the re-
ligious needs of the students at
Gainesville and Tallahassee. Ev.
cry member of Sholem Lodge is
_ now familiar with the fine work
that has been accomplished for
the students there under the lead-
ership of Rabbi David Max Eich-
horn. The work accomplished by
Sholem Lodge was the inspiration
for the decision of the Florida
State Federation of B'nai B'rith
Lodges to take over the work at
Gainesville and Tallahassee as
State pr ijects instead of one Lodge
beai ing the entire burdi n. Even
bo, Sholem Lodge is still able t>r
proudly report that it is contrib-
uting financially more than all
other Lodges in the State of Flor-
ida for the Student Union work
at the University of Florida and
Florida State C liege for Wo-
men; and wilhin the last month.
Sholem Lodge awarded a scholar-
ship of One Hundred Dollars to a
worthy student now attending the
University of Florida.
One might be prone to say. "You
are doing a good work for the
State Universities, but what of
the local situation ?" Sholem Ix>dge
realizes only too well its obliga-
tion to the students of the Uni-
versity of Miami, and is undertak-
ing a program there which prom-
ises to equal its work accomplished
elsewttere as aforesaid. One of
the activities definitely planned
and upon which we are working
at the moment is a Community
Passover Seder for students at the
University of Miami. Having
knowledge of the fact that a large
number of the Jewish students at
said University are far away from
their homes and families. Sholem
I-odge has passed a resolution
whereby the Community Seder for
students will be held on the sec-
ond Passover Seder night, April
23, 1940. All Jewish students at
the University of Miami who are
away from tWeir homes and fiam.
ilies will be invited, and the Seder
services will be conducted with
the traditional ceremonies, under
the supervision of one of our re-
ligious leaders.
This year, Sholem Ix>dge has
concluded that we want to do more
for the stduents on Passover than
merely arrange a good dinner for
them. We want them to get the
religious benefits as well.
hat our efforts will be a suc-
cess is a foregone conclusion. Why-
are we so sure? Wouldn't you
be sure too if you had an organi-
zation cooperating with you such
as the Ladies Auxiliary of B'nai
B'rith? They are for the pro-
gram one hundred Der cent and

HOT STUFF
Nostradamus, the Kith-century Jewish physician who wrote a book
foretelling the events of years then to come said, among other things,
that the day when the Palm and Shamrock meet would mark the be-
ginning of the end of the (Jermanic empire, Danton Walker recalls
This meeting occurred as couple of weeks ago, you remember,
when both St. Patrick's Day and Palm Sunday fell on Dr. Stephen S.
Wise's birthday .... The next day came that historic meeting of djc_
tators at the Brenner Passand now we're waiting anxiously to see
whether the beginning of the end of Hitler's empire is in sight ....
t's up to you. Benito, to make Nostradamus' prophecy come true ....
One medical theory, by the way. states that Hitler's general mean-
ness is due to an excessive proportion of fats and eggs in his diet
... It seems such a diet is bad for both temper and liver .... You
remember that Dr. Alfred Neumann, the Vienesse throat specialist who
some years ago refused to operate on Hitler, died in this country a few
months ago. after only a short while of freedom and safety in the I'.
S. .... (Joing the rounds is the rumor that his death was the result of
the administration of a slow poison to him in a Nazi concentration camp
. A book on war propaganda in this country is being readied by
Harold l.avine and .lames Wechsler ....
LOOKA HERE
The Treasury Department says that it isn't Uncle Sam's official
ens r who is barring Jacob Epstein's famous statue of Adam from of-
icial entry into this country, but rather the failure of the First Man's
mportera to file entry applications .... The new American ambassador
o Naziland, Washington whispers will probably be Clarence Pickett,
imself a Quaker, who after the last war helped in the Friends' relief
work in Berli.i ai.d Vienna .... If you have three (l's to spare you can

Herr Herman decided it was too spiffy-looking for use in war-time ....

ion is thai Jabotinsky always attracts moi yi un i men and good-look-

Meeting for Jabotinsky overshadowed the Nev York reception given
irooklyn Talmud Torah directors' meetirg .... The only thing we
idn't like at the .lahbotinsky gathering was the fact that Aaron
'ropes of Poland wore a brown uniform with a Sam Browne belt ...
As he left the building hundreds of J ws booed him, believing that he
was a German Bandit who had come there for the purpose of making

THE Y. M. H. A.
NOTES
(BY HARRY SCHWARTZ)
What promises to be one of the
greatest projects the Jewish com-
munity has ever undertaken began
last Friday morning at the Y. M.
H. A. when operations were begun
by laborers and mechanics for the
improvements and alterations of
the Y. M. H. A. buildings and
grounds.
To celebrate the event a lunch-
eon was held at the "Y" in which
members of the board and building
committee partook of a fine feast
catered by our new concessioner,
Lou (luncheteria) Safan.
At this writing there is a "bee
hive" of activities at the "Y." In
the field can be seen a steam roll-
er, trucks, working menall busy
making an athletic field- the equal
of which has not been seen in
parts. In the rear building.
which formerly housed the Boy
Scout and Girl Scout Troops, the
partition has been removed and a
gym is being installed. In the
building proper, part of the west
wall of the auditorium has been
altered for the purpose of making
a new entrance to lfith avenue.
Plans are also being made for
the screening of the front porch.
Tainting, decorating and furnish-
ing will complete these improve-
ments.
Every member of the board is
so thrilled these days that when
they enter the "Y" they are un-
able to speak due to a little lump
in their throats. The happiness,
ecstacy and joy that surrounds the
members of the board and other
friends of the "Y" upon entering
is indescribable. If your scribe
had the power of a Shakespeare
or a Webster he would still be un-
able to express the feeling of the
members of the board for the
thrill that he gets out of these
wonderful improvements. We know
that this is the forerunner of a
Jewish Community Center for the
Greater Miami area.
Looking in retrospect, when this
organization was first started, a
matter of'eight years ago, what a
thrill the organization founders
must have today to see the fruits
of the seeds that they have sown.
We would be ungrateful were we
not to realize that all this has
been made possible by the vision
and foresight of the original thir-
teen men, including Murry Gross-
man, president. Doc Schwartz, vice
president; George Davis, secre-
tary; Nat Blumberg. treasurer;
Al Grossman, Ralph Grossman. Al
Keisman, Irving Ilirsch, Abe Wei.
ner, Max Weiner, Joe Warren,
Max Goldstein and Max Reisman.
Our most heartfelt thanks and
keen appreciation goes to this fine
group of men and also to their
successors in office who continued
to carry out the plans, originally
laid, over a period of years.
Our hope is that those boys
who have absented themselves
from the "Y" for some reason or
Re-elect U. S. Senator
another, will come back to their
old Alma Mater and will carry on
as of yore. Come over and watch
the progress of these improve-
ments.
DEDICATION
When the above improvements
will have been completed, there
will take place a dedication at the
"Y," the equal of which has never
been seen in the State of Florida.
Elaborate plans are being made
by the board of directors and de-
tails will be given in succeeding
issues.
Jl'MOR "Y" LEAP YEAR
FROLIC THIS SUNDAY
Eye Sigh there, ol' chappie, a
wee bit of spring is in the air and
dems the times a young man's
fancy turns to the annual Junior
Y. M. H. A- Spring Frolic and
Dance which will be held this
Sunday at the specially decorated
"Y" clubrooms, located at 1567 S.
\V. 5th St. Admission is 35c stag
or drag. Chairman Margaret
Horowitz and her committee have
worked diligently to make tliis af-
fair the best ever held. Last year
the crowds were turned away, so
take heed and come early for a
gala evening.
P. S.: Added feature will be
the coronation of a "Y" king.
HOME CAMP
It is very encouraging to the
board to see the keen interest
shown at this early date at the
Home Camp. Members of the
board have been inquiring daily at
the office and are very anxious to
see the Home Camp on its way.
Many applications have been re-
ceived for camp counsellor and we
hope to make the announcement of
our selection in a very short time.
We hope to have a larger staff
and several new projects in our
curriculum this summer.
We wish to call your attention,
once more, to the fact that there-
are many underprivileged children
in this vicinity who need facili-
ties of the Home Camp The
kids who live on the other side
of the track need your help. For
a small tuition you can make a kid
happy by creating a scholarship
in the Home Camp for them..
Communicate with the executive
dfrector for more details.
NEWS 'ROUND TOWN
We offer our hearty congrats
to the \Miami Jewish Orthodox
Congregation and its directors for
tlheir foresight in inaugurating
plans for the erection of a new
Shul. The dedication took place
last Sunday afternoon and the
response was spontaneously tre-
mendous. We wish at this
time, to thank the members of
the building committee and Henry
Gabbe, in particular, for his able
and constant supervision of the
work at the "Y." Would that W<
had more public spirited men who
would take an interest in the
building of youth.

other candidates. Bentley unsuc-
cessfully opposed the late Cary 1).
I andis four years ago and Watson
tasted defeat at the hands of F.l-
wyn Thomas for a Supreme Court
post two years ago. Both are goo,!
campaigners, have a state wide ac.
quaintance and at present appear
to be neck and neck.
? ?
I he Treasurer's post will be
filled by either Ed Larson, recent-
ly resigned I". S. Collector of In-
ternal Revenue for Florida, or
Rill Wainwright. at present the
State Auditor under Cone at Tal-
lahassee. Larson seems to have
too much strength in practicall}
every section although Wain-
wright's crew of auditors over the
state cannot he underestimated.
So much for the cabinet racesr

Rivalling the Governor's race in
May for interest and impo
" ; I be tl e fighl > i unseat Flor-
ida's senior U. S. Senator, Charles
O. Andrews of Orlando. And from
present appearances Senator An-
drews has the fight of his life
on his hands. Railroad Commis-
sioner Jerry Carter who never
does 'sit out' a campaign is run-
ning again and Governor Fred P.
Cone has once again 'gone to the
neople.' Although other entries
include such notables as publisher
Bernarr McFadden and Author
Charles Francis Coe, the race is
between Andrews, Carter and
Cone. Carter is perhaps the most
dogged and consistent vote getter
in the state. He has a sizeable
following that would cast a vote
for him for President. But the
dark horse appears to be our
cracker Govemer Fred Preston
Cone. His record at Tallahassee
of strict economy which has re-
vealed a 50 per cent reduction in
cost of operations of departments
under his supervision is attract-
ing widespread approval from bus-
iness men. Andrews has the ben-
efits normally accruing to an in-
cumbent but lacks color, aggress-
iveness and other campaigning
ability that may mean the diff. r-
ence between victory and defeat
? D.
From all indications too. 1940
appears to be a record political
year in Florida in county as
well as state-wide political mat-
ters. Everybody seems to be run-
ning for something. With the poll
tax lifted, and rightfully so. ex.
perls predict a landslide vole. bj
for the greatest in Florida's his-

Talmud Torah: It is gratifying
to sec the continued attei

that Sun lay School training for

only by attending tthe Hebrew

therefore urge parcels to sec the

SUNDAY SCHOOL
A very interesting Purim play,
written by a student of our Insti-

enacted by some of our children
last Sunday morning during the
assembly, under the direction of
Miss Miriam Wcintrauh. In the

COUNCIL SABBATH
During the services last Friday
evening. Mrs. Lewis Brown, rep-
resentative of the National Coun-
cil of Jewish Women of the Miami
Chapter, brought us an interesting
"Purim" message During the so-
i ial hours which followed the ser-
vices. Mrs. Brown and her com-
mittee, Mesdames Isador Cohen-
Isador Langner, Michael Arnold
and Meyer Schwartz, served as
hostessi s.

By Elsie Kronenfeld
When we were small no other
Jewish Holiday appealed to us as
much as did Purim. We dreamed
of the days to come when we would
be an Esther to our race. We
could foresee some terrible catas-
trophe that we could thwart all by
ourselves. Today we realize this
is not possible. We know that on-
ly the combined efforts of all Jew-
ish women can turn an evil tide.
The Jewish women of today know
it too. Thus they belong to na-
tional and international organi-
zations throughout the world.

The annual Donor's Dinner is
the next chance the general Jew-
ish public will have here in Miami
t'i aid Junior Hadassah in their
Zionist work. This long looked
for social event is to be April 21.
The place is as yet undecided. The
Donor's Dinner is perhaps our lo-
cal Chapter's largest social event.*
For it you make, borrow or give
six dollars. This money entitles
you and your escort to dine and
dance at some prominent place.

BIRCHAS TODA
Of the many noble virtues
which man possesses and the prac.
tice of which makes him exalted
above all creatures, gratitude is
surely the noblest. It is with a
sense of humble gratitude and re-
peated thanksgiving that we ac-
count for the irreat success of our
ground-breaking ceremonies held
Sunday last. We thank God for
His goodness and mercies and to
our many friends who no doubt
carried out the will of God in
their splendid moral and finan-
cial aid.
Those who partook in these soul
lifting exercises felt with each
speaker the ringing message of
the day. that we build whilst oth-
ers destroy, that we go on un-
daunted in spite of the threatening
clouds that engulf a great part of
the world. Space does not permit
us to enumerate all those who
helped to make this affair the suc-
cessful venture it was. Especial
thanks to the Y. M. H. A. for the
loan of their chairs, flags and to

Active Leader Enters Primary Tallahassee.—In announcing for Delegate to the National Democratic Convention from the Stateat-Large, Al B. Block of Tallahassee, stated: "It is my firm conviction that persons offering to represent ida Democracy at the National Convention should tell the peo. pie just how they stan,I relative to matl is of general policy so "'•••it when our people go to the to select their Delegates there will be no misunderstanding 1 question as t i just who stands for what. Following that convic lion, I want the people to know thai I stand four-square behind 'iir great President. Franklin Delano RooseveL, and his policies. No man in American history, in my opinion, has striven harder orj more sincerely for the welfare of the great mass of our people than lice Grossman, executive director of the Y. M. H. A., followed by the singing of "God Bless America. led by Cantor A. Keller of Chicago. Mr. E. Albert Pallot, president of the Y. M. H. A., was then introduced and acted as master of ceremonies for the afternoon. Brief talks were made by Mr. H. M. Drevich and Mrs. Wm. ('lein, presidents of the Synagogue and its Auxiliary, respectively. The main address was made by Mr. Stanley C. Myers, president of the Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds, who stressed the importance of spiritual growth in this area. He was followed by Rabbi Abraham A. Kellner, spiritual leader of the Congregation, who made a stirrig appeal through which was realized the raising of a large sum. The honor of breaking ground was purchased by Mr. Philip Berkowitz who. with Rabbi Kellner fol. lowed by officers and members of the boards, led the procession to the place at which the rite was performed, while the audience stood at attention. The singing of Hatikvah concluded the program. The silver plated shovel suitably engraved was donated by Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Creagh of the Creagh Co. Jewelers. Italy Plans Jewish Riddance Rome iWXSi Following Italy's moves to rid the professions of all Jews, Premier Iionito Mussolini has indicated that he will soon launch a campaign to force Italy's 40,000 Jews out of the country, it was learned from usually reliable sources here. The first tangible step in the new anti-semitic drive was seen in the Government's recall of a previous order banning Jewish emigration to other countries. Several weeks ago Rome authorities called in all passports held by Jews. It was reported that the Government now wishes to have Jews emigrate from Italy at the rate of 3,500 a year. At this rate, it is estimated, the entire Jewish population will have left Italy within eleven years. The Italian quota for immigration to the United States is 5,200 yearly, far in excess of 3.500. There is no similarity between the situation confronting Italian Jews and the predicament in which Jews of Greater Germany find themselves since there are more emigration possibilities open to Italian Jews. In recent years Italian Jews have emigrated in groups to South America and there are large colonies of Italian lews in Palestine and the Belgian Congo. Young Demos Schedule Rallies Miami. March 29. — Florida's Young Democrats have scheduled two statewide radio broadcasts to familiarize voters with the platforms of candidate's for United States Senate, g vernor. attorney general, state comptroller am state treasurer. William W. Shayne of Miami state chairman of the Young Democrats' activities, said the first broadcast is planned from Orlando on March 30. an.l the later one will center at Miami or. April 27. Included in the hookups will be radio stations in Tampa. Jacksonville and West Palm Beach. The Young Democrats want ti help give Floridians as widespread an opportunity as possible for weighing the merits of the various candidates for these important offices. Mr. Shayne said. Mr. Shayne emphasized that the projects are entirely a nonprofit service, undertaken solely because of the Young* Demorcats' interest in good government. Epidemic Sweeps Lublin Jews Amsterdam (WNS)—A widespread epidemic has been taking a fearful toll in the Lublin Jewish "reservation" as a result of the overcrowding, lack of fresh food and medical supplies, it was reliably learned here. Medical circles frequently warned that an epidemic is inevitable under current conditions in the reservationIn the face of these warnings Nazi authorities have continued to send Jews from all parts of Greater Germany to that small area outside of Lublin which has been designated as the "Jewish reservation." The epidemic was held in checkwhile the cold weather c< ntinuod but the arrival of spring and warm weather precipitated a new outbreak which is rapidly decimating the population. Nazi authorities, it was reported, have requested Berlin to discontinue the practice of expelling Jews from other parts of Germany to Lublin but this request has been ignored.

He came here for a lecture tour under the sponsorship of the Jewish National Fund of America.

As a tiller of the soil in the Holy Land for the past fifty years and as one of the pioneers in Jewish colonization ih that country, I belong to those who believe that it is an act of Providence that the Jews and Arabs have been thrown together and that it is possible for the two peoples to live in amity. I know the country and the two peoples, particularly those who till its soil, and I say that the land regulations prohibiting Arabs from selling and Jews from buying land in one zone and restricting land transfer in another is a fatal error and a sin toward the country as a whole." "During the past four years Palestine Jewry was engaged in a struggle with the forces of destruction. Hundreds of us were killed, thousands were affected. bMiur v l K The above map of Palestine, tentatively drawn, is based upon an unofficial analysis of the Palestinian land edict which divides tfhe country into three zones for the purpose of land purchase. The free zone embraces, including the land holdings already in Jewish possession, an area of approximately 7,000,000 dunams exclusive of the Negeb. MMHM

>• Page Six THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN FRIDAY, MARCH 29. 19 10 THE Y. M. H. A. NOTES (BY HARRY SCHWARTZ) What promises to be one of the greatest projects the Jewish community has ever undertaken began last Friday morning at the Y. M. H. A. when operations were begun by laborers and mechanics for the improvements and alterations of the Y. M. H. A. buildings and grounds. To celebrate the event a luncheon was held at the "Y" in which members of the board and building committee partook of a fine feast catered by our new concessioner, Lou (luncheteria) Safan. At this writing there is a "bee hive" of activities at the "Y." In the field can be seen a steam roller, trucks, working men—all busy making an athletic fieldthe equal of which has not been seen in parts. In the rear building. which formerly housed the Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, the partition has been removed and a gym is being installed. In the building proper, part of the west wall of the auditorium has been altered for the purpose of making a new entrance to lfith avenue. Plans are also being made for the screening of the front porch. Tainting, decorating and furnishing will complete these improvements. Every member of the board is so thrilled these days that when they enter the "Y" they are unable to speak due to a little lump in their throats. The happiness, ecstacy and joy that surrounds the members of the board and other friends of the "Y" upon entering is indescribable. If your scribe had the power of a Shakespeare or a Webster he would still be unable to express the feeling of the members of the board for the thrill that he gets out of these wonderful improvements. We know that this is the forerunner of a Jewish Community Center for the Greater Miami area. Looking in retrospect, when this organization was first started, a matter of'eight years ago, what a thrill the organization founders must have today to see the fruits of the seeds that they have sown. We would be ungrateful were we not to realize that all this has been made possible by the vision and foresight of the original thirteen men, including Murry Grossman, president. Doc Schwartz, vice president; George Davis, secretary; Nat Blumberg. treasurer; Al Grossman, Ralph Grossman. Al Keisman, Irving Ilirsch, Abe Wei. ner, Max Weiner, Joe Warren, Max Goldstein and Max Reisman. Our most heartfelt thanks and keen appreciation goes to this fine group of men and also to their successors in office who continued to carry out the plans, originally laid, over a period of years. Our hope is that those boys who have absented themselves from the "Y" for some reason or Re-elect U. S. Senator another, will come back to their old Alma Mater and will carry on as of yore. Come over and watch the progress of these improvements. DEDICATION When the above improvements will have been completed, there will take place a dedication at the "Y," the equal of which has never been seen in the State of Florida. Elaborate plans are being made by the board of directors and details will be given in succeeding issues. Jl'MOR "Y" LEAP YEAR FROLIC THIS SUNDAY Eye Sigh there, ol' chappie, a wee bit of spring is in the air and dems the times a young man's fancy turns to the annual Junior Y. M. H. ASpring Frolic and Dance which will be held this Sunday at the specially decorated "Y" clubrooms, located at 1567 S. \V. 5th St. Admission is 35c stag or drag. Chairman Margaret Horowitz and her committee have worked diligently to make tliis affair the best ever held. Last year the crowds were turned away, so take heed and come early for a gala evening. P. S.: Added feature will be the coronation of a "Y" king. HOME CAMP It is very encouraging to the board to see the keen interest shown at this early date at the Home Camp. Members of the board have been inquiring daily at the office and are very anxious to see the Home Camp on its way. Many applications have been received for camp counsellor and we hope to make the announcement of our selection in a very short time. We hope to have a larger staff and several new projects in our curriculum this summer. We wish to call your attention, once more, to the fact that thereare many underprivileged children in this vicinity who need facilities of the Home Camp The kids who live on the other side of the track need your help. For a small tuition you can make a kid happy by creating a scholarship in the Home Camp for them.. Communicate with the executive dfrector for more details. NEWS 'ROUND TOWN We offer our hearty congrats to the \Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation and its directors for tlheir foresight in inaugurating plans for the erection of a new Shul. The dedication took place last Sunday afternoon and the response was spontaneously tremendous. We wish at this time, to thank the members of the building committee and Henry Gabbe, in particular, for his able and constant supervision of the work at the "Y." Would that W< had more public spirited men who would take an interest in the building of youth. Glad Tidings: A. .1. Tobin is back home recuperating alter a lengthy illness.

Not so lucky was Comptroller Jim Lee. whose opposition, however, is not as strong as it was four years ago when he won out with ease in the first primary. The remaining posts in the cabinet.

Railroad Commissioner Jerry Carter who never does 'sit out' a campaign is running again and Governor Fred P. Cone has once again 'gone to the neople.' Although other entries include such notables as publisher Bernarr McFadden and Author Charles Francis Coe, the race is between Andrews, Carter and Cone. Carter is perhaps the most dogged and consistent vote getter in the state. He has a sizeable following that would cast a vote for him for President. But the dark horse appears to be our cracker Govemer Fred Preston Cone. His record at Tallahassee of strict economy which has revealed a 50 per cent reduction in cost of operations of departments under his supervision is attracting widespread approval from business men.

We know that only the combined efforts of all Jewish women can turn an evil tide. The Jewish women of today know it too.

Lehman as re-elected Governor of NewYork in the face of an intense whispering campaign. The anti-Semitic Gerald Winrod was snowed under when he sounht the senatorial nomination in Kansas. The coming campaign shows signs of being one of the most heated in years. Every conceivable issue will be raised in the hopes of victory. One of the issues which must be kept out is race and religion; the experience of 1938 should teach the misguided supporters of any candidate that the people will not heed an appeal made on the basis of bigotry. "*We have seen waves of prejudice before, but they have never found any fertile soil in American institutions, and after a brief popu. larity have died away," stated a popular statesman recently. The United States of America has always been, and must remain, the citadel of religious freedom and religious toleration. THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN is not espousing the cause of any candidate for office. IT IS CHAMPIONING THE CAUSE OF DECENT CITIZENSHIP. At this time, when the benefits of the principles of Freedom, Tolerance and the Safeguards of Democracy are so self-evident, we cannot help but urge upon every Jewish resident who is qualified to vote, but ,has not yet registered, that he is truly shirking his duty unless he has fulfilled the rights of suffrage which he possesses and which in fairness and decency he should exercise.

ERSATZ YISROEL B'NAI B'RITH NOTES by Harold Turk Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith has undertaken and accomplished many worthwhile things but there s none of which it has reason to be more proud than its Student Union Activities. When the situation was brought to its attention regarding the students of the University of Florida at Gainesville, Florida, and of the Florida State College for Women at Tallahassee, Florida, although they were far in distance from its sphere of activity, it came forward with the necessary work that has made the entire State of Florida justly proud of Sholem Lodge, Through the inspiration and untiring efforts of Brother Harry Simonhoff and others, the necessary funds were contributed by our Lodge and a full time Rabbi was engaged to minister to the religious needs of the students at Gainesville and Tallahassee. Ev. cry member of Sholem Lodge is now familiar with the fine work that has been accomplished for the students there under the leadership of Rabbi David Max Eichhorn. The work accomplished by Sholem Lodge was the inspiration for the decision of the Florida State Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges to take over the work at Gainesville and Tallahassee as State pr ijects instead of one Lodge beai ing the entire burdi n. Even BO, Sholem Lodge is still able t>r proudly report that it is contributing financially more than all other Lodges in the State of Florida for the Student Union work at the University of Florida and Florida State C liege for Women; and wilhin the last month. Sholem Lodge awarded a scholarship of One Hundred Dollars to a worthy student now attending the University of Florida. One might be prone to say. "You are doing a good work for the State Universities, but what of the local situation ?" Sholem Ix>dge realizes only too well its obligation to the students of the University of Miami, and is undertaking a program there which promises to equal its work accomplished elsewttere as aforesaid. One of the activities definitely planned and upon which we are working at the moment is a Community Passover Seder for students at the University of Miami. Having knowledge of the fact that a large number of the Jewish students at said University are far away from their homes and families. Sholem I-odge has passed a resolution whereby the Community Seder for students will be held on the second Passover Seder night, April 23, 1940. All Jewish students at the University of Miami who are away from tWeir homes and fiam. ilies will be invited, and the Seder services will be conducted with the traditional ceremonies, under the supervision of one of our religious leaders. This year, Sholem Ix>dge has concluded that we want to do more for the stduents on Passover than merely arrange a good dinner for them. We want them to get the religious benefits as well. hat our efforts will be a success is a foregone conclusion. Whyare we so sure? Wouldn't you be sure too if you had an organization cooperating with you such as the Ladies Auxiliary of B'nai B'rith?
