Dan Chappell, well known in po
licical and civic circles for a long
number of years- is now a candi-
date for State Senator in the com-
ing elections. He served as State
Representatives for a number of
lyears. Pledging himself to be
Itruly a representative of Dade

the planks of his platform the es-
tablishment of a medical school in
Florida, a guaranteed revenue suf-
ficient to pay the school teach-
ers an adequate salary.
Judge Paul D. Barns, a candi-
I date for re-election to the bench
of the Circuit and Civil Court,
[which he has occupied for four-
I teen years, attributes whatever le-

to the lawyes of the Dade County

[him as one of, if not the ablest
j members of the Florida circuit,
[although his judgeship is not based
I so much on his mastery of the
law, but rather, his hold on the
[affections of the people which are
[ascribed to his interpretation of
justice. His success, they say, is
based on equity that guarantees
every defendant, every plaintiff,
whelher represented by brilliant
or mediocre legal talent, fair and
impartial hearing. They point
out Judge Barns is known for the
fact that "He doesn't play ball."

Ralph Pole, Justice of the

Judge Pole has been a resident of

Amsterdam (WNS)Two hun-
dred and eighty Jewish soldiers,
captured last September with the
Polish army, were executed by
Nazi firing squads last month, it
was reliably reported here.
Before their execution the Jew-
ish war prisoners were compelled
to dig their own graves.
With disregard for treaties pro-
viding for humane treatment of
wir prisoners, all Jewish soldiers
who had fought with the Polish
army have been singled out and
sent to special concentration
Because of overcrowded condi-
tions in the concentration camps
the Nazi authorities recently de-
cided to send Jews taken prisoner
during the war to the Lublin Jew-
ish "reservation." ,' Examination
of their birth certificates disclos-
ed, however, that 280 of the Jew-
ish prisoners were born in that
part of Poland which formerly be
longed to Russia.
The Jews were packed into op-
en cattle trains and transported,
without food, to the Soviet bor-
der. The soldiers were refused ad-
mittance by Soviet authorities
who claimed that the Jews were
no longer Soviet subjects
The Nazi commander in charge
of the prison train then ordered
the men executed. They were
shot down by machine gun squads
close to the Soviet border. The
Jewish community was compelled
to sign affidavits stating that the
men had frozen to death.
U. S- Visas
London (WNS) Appr ximate-
ly 5,000 immigration visas to the
United States are available to
Poles under the present quota,
which expires at the end of June
but there is no method of distri-
bution since the Nazi'authorities
have ordered all American con
BUlar officials 10 leave Roland, it
was disci sod here.
Current American quota pro-
vides for 6,000 immigration visas.
Because distribution of the visas
was stopped when the Nazis in-
vaded Roland last September on'y
1,000 of these visas have been is-
When the American officials
were ordered to leave Warsaw
there were more tha 5,000 appli-
cants registered with the consul-
ate. The distribution of the visas
among these Polish Jews may
mean the difference between life
Diplomatic circles here are
confident that the application of
pressure by Americans on Wash-
ington will result in the distri-
bution of the unused visas. It
was suggested here that American
consuls now in Berlin could make
visits to Warsaw from time to
time to distribute the visas.
It is probable that Polish citi-
zens now living in Germany may
be able to receive the visas when
the Warsaw American consulate
opens offices in Berlin.

Rome (WNS) New Economic
restrictions against Jewish mer-
chants and professionals seemed
inevitable here as trade and pro-
fessional associations moved to
deprive .lews of membership ami
The Italian Commerce Associa-
tion has announced that Jews will
be denied renewal of licenses for
coffee stands and tobacco shops
at the end of the year. The Asso.
ciation stipulated also that the
Jews may not sell or transfer
their licenses to "Aryans."
It was learned also that the
unions of lawyers and physicians

THINGS WE'VE HEARD
The Duke of Coburg, now in this country to get the American Red
i'm>. to cooperate with the German Red Cross, of (hich he is the
President, was one of Hitler's first big hackers, you might like to know
. And while carrying on negotiations to get good American dollars
into his clutches he's doing quite a bit of collecting on the side, from
Nazi groups who are only too happy to contribute to Hitler's funds
. There's a racial angle to the willingness of the Dominican Re-
public to accept refugee immigration from Cermany .... Because of
the high birth-rate among the West Indian Negroes the white masters
of the Republic welcome any Caucasian immigration .... Did you know
that Henry Shapiro. United Press correspondent at .Moscow, scooped
all his colleagues on the Kussn-Finaish pact? .... His success was due
to his linguistic ability it seems he's the only American newspaper
man in Moscow who can redllv speak Russian fluently .... Sidelight
on the new "Aryan" morality: Hitler has instituted a new series of
medals for mothers of five or more children, with legitimacy no object
.... Latest recipe to come out of Vienna is one for an "Axis cocktail"
It consists of Russian vodka plus Italian vermouth .... At this stage
you're supposed to ask what Germany's contribution to the cocktail
might he ... And the answer is that Naziland provides the ice ... .
All of which reminds us to tell you that Wall Streeters are expecting
a general peace to break out over in Europe any week now .
THE ZIONIST FRONT
Vladimir Jabotinsky is telling his intimates that when he returns
to the U. S. from his flying trip to South America he will stay) here till
he conquers American ewishpublic opinion .... Now that Poland no
longer exists he's planning to make America the center of Revisionist
activities .... What is happening to the $4,000,000 loan that Dr. Chaim
VYeuzmian projected during his \ isit here? .... If it isn't gotten within
the next few months it won't he needed at all. because by that time
the campaign funds will have raised that much for Palestine .
Don't be surprised if the Palestine Pavilion at the New York World's
Fair will decide to w:ihdraw from the 1940 season .... The World's
Fair authorities are showing a deplorable lack of understanding of
the tremendous he ,. that this Pavilijn was last season in bringing in
millions of cash c stomers .... If one considers thut the Polish and
Czech pavilions represent countries that are no longer on the map, one
can see no reas n why the masters of etiquette at the Fair should take
so red-tapis* ,< attitude on the status of the Palestine building among
the foreign pavilions.....

The late Reuben Brainin's much-discussed diaries have now been
published in part, at Volume III of his Collected Works One of
the celebrities under fire in these pages from the Hebrew dean's dia-ies
is Shalom Asch. author of "The Nazarene" .... That Jewish medical
school for New York City is no longer merely a dream Its opening
date has been scheduled for October 1st .... Bridge ace Rlv Colbert-
son has waved autobiographic .... His life-storv. entitled "The
Strange Lives of One Man," is due to appear this month_____Hearing
r.O.OOO divorce cases is quite some record, and reconciling one out of
every seven divorce-seeking couples is even more of an achievement
but that's what Judge Joseph Sabath of Chicago has done in his 40
years of judicial service ....
Orchids to Warner Brothers, who have signed Albert Basserman
on a long-term contract .... Basserman, who is over 70. is unques
tionably the greatest of German actors------Though he is a full-blooded
"Aryan" he refused to work under the swastika .... Now they claim
that Charlie Chaplin is holding up release of "The Dictator" until Sum-
ner Welles makes his report to President Roosevelt .... The know-it-
alls say that if Welles' report on Mussolini is favorable Chaplin will
tone down the reference to II Duce------David O. Selznick, who in the

is a youth who loses a leg while riding the railswhich is an experi-
ence of which Bern has first-hand knowledge .... John Garfield, who
is returning to Broadway in the stellar role of Bein's play, continues
to use the "Americanized" first name which Hollywood insisted on giv-

Franco-Roman "Jules"), but his close friends still call him Julie ....

Arab and Jewish citrus growers are forming a joint delegation to
go to London and seek government aid for the war-stricken Palestine
Jewish physicians are beginning to move back to the Arab towns
which they had quit during the Arab disorders, when it was not safe
for Jews to live among Arabs.
The ex-Mufti of Jerusalem, the chief trouble-maker among the
Arabs, is not being heard from these days.
All these are signs of growing amity between Arabs and Jews in
a land which has witnessed little respite from bloodshed since April
It is. so far, only the seed of cooperation
