FLORIDA, FRIDAY, MAY 31, 1940 PRICE 10 CENTS New Refugee Plans Form New York (WNS)—Plans have been made to provide alternative channels of immigration to Palestine and negotiations are now uni!( r way for establishing a new route to North and South American counties, in the event of the spread of war to the Mediterranean, it was announced by Rabbis Abba Hillel Silver and Jonah B. Wise, national chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, in a statement outlining the effects of the war upon the activities of the Joint Distribution Committee, the United Palestine Appeal and the National Refugee Service, which are the constituent agencies of the nationwide United Jewish Appeal campaign for $23,000,000. An agreement has been reached with the English and Russian governments whereby refugee immigrants bound for Palestine would leave from Stockholm and Vilna and follow a route through Odessa. Others would sail for Palestine by way of the Port of Constanza on the Black Sea. Arrangements are being made whereby refugees bound for the Western hemisphere would travel acrOM Russia to Siberia, where they would go from Vladivostock to Yokohama in Japan and from there across the Pacific to the Americas. Provision has thus been made for the contingency of the enlargement of the theatre of war so that the avenues of escape for Jewish refugees from the danger anil distress zones of the European continent may be kept open. Rabbi Silver and Rabbi Wise point out that not difficulties resulting from the present European conflict, but a lack of funds today stands in the way of the fullest implementation of the programs for emergency relief and rehabilitation in the war zones and other parts of Kurope, refugee immigration and settlement in Palestine and refugee integration in the United States. B'Nai B'rith Hospital Drive Nearing $600 '"in .it .1 int rest and volunt sered financial support affords officials of the South Florida (rippled ( hillIron's Hospital and School encouragement and ivnewed determination that the community will build a hospital and school this summer, according to a statement made by M, J. Kopelowitz, chairman of the B'nai B'rith drive for the Crippled Children's Hospital. Mr. Kopelowitz stated that there is perhaps several hundred dollars more to be added to the B'nai B'rith report at this moment, as many members have sent their contributions direct to the campaign office, and it will take some time before these are segregated from the more than 20,000 memberships already received.

London (WNS) — With Italy's formal participation in the European struggle on the si le of Germany expected hourly, the official Nazi radio broadcast a report that Premier Mussolini intends to demand Palestine when, and it'. England is defi ated. The Nazi announcer stated that Palestine should belong to Italy since the latter country was the rightful protector of Islam." The Hitler spokesman said that England, with the aid of the Jews. was seeking to dominate the Arabs "in the same manner that Great Britain and the Jews Bought to dominate the peoples of Europe before the advent of Hitler:" Diplomatic circles here ventured the opinion that Italy may be demanding Palestine as its price for military intervention on the side of Nazi Germany. Anticipating Italy's ent^y into the war, Great Britain is maintaining a good part of i'.s fleet m the Mediterranean and has re-enforced its troops now stationed in Egypt and Palestine.

While bombs fell on the English coast, British officials admitted, by implication, that pro-Fascist influences had weakened tile country's national defenses and promised a complete round-up of British fifth columnists.

Paris (WNS)—Close to 30.0G0 Jews, including many refugees from Nazi Germany, escaped from Belgium before the invading army tightened its hold on that country, it was reported here. Approximately 15.000 Belgian .lev. s are now living in temporary camps in France. The Jews who escaped from Belgium constitute about one-third of the total Jewish population, including German-Jewish refugees, in Belgium at the time of the invasion. Jews remaining in Belgium are for the most part young mm fighting with the Belgian troops and elderly folk who were unable to stand the grueling trip to England and France. Many of the Belgian Jews reaching France are now in Angors, seat of the Polish Government-in-exile and Europe's new "melting pot." In recent years, refugees from Poland, Czechoslovakia, Austria, the Scandinavian and now the Low Countries have poured in increasing groups into Angers.

Six Mcnths SUBSCRIPTION FRIDAY, MAY 31, 1940 VOLUME 13—No. 22 RECOGNIZED LEADERSHIP After making an impressive record that speaks for itself, Stanley C. Myers was drafted as president of the now Greater Miami Jewish Federation for his third term. Rendering years of service to the community first as head of one group and then another, covering all phases, spiritual, civic and social, he has had to sacrifice much of both his personal and professional life, Realizing no personal gains and seeking no self glory, he has been devoted to the cause of Federation since its inception, being one of the prime factors in its organization. The progress Federation has made under his direction is evident and while the success is due to no one individual, it definitely takes the right kind of capable leadership to be able to band people together and get the utmost in results from them. It requires their respect and admiration for him as well as for Federation, Leadership is a scarcity. Many are the organizations that have had to search for able officers instead of being able to select from a volume of eligible timber. That Stanley C. Myers was unanimously drafted for a "third term" proves the recognition of his leadership—the type Jewry sorely needs. operation and is recuperating at Petersburg, Virginia. We all wish him a complete and speedy recovery and also wish him every possible' success in hie new office and imay he continue to inspire us on. • • Another keynote of the convonSt 06 ''"" as ''"' l ,t otion of Brother E. A. Pallot to the general com' 1 M mittee of the District. Brother Pallot has done so much for Sholem Lodge and has been so active in State Federation activities of B'nai B'rith that it is fitting and proper that he now move into the broader scope and activities of B'nai B'rith His enthusiasm, ability and leadership should make i him outstanding on that committee. • The Royal Palm Chapter of the A.Z.A. recently presented Brother Nathan Adelnian with an "Adviser Pen" in recognition of his fine work and service to that group in particular and A.Z.A. in general. Brother Adelman has won a (dace in the hearts of those young growing boys and is to lie commended for his untiring ef forts as an organizer and leader. DUTCH SUPPER^ WELL ATTENDED A large audience was present at the card party and Dutch supper sponsored by the Sisterhood of the Miami Beach Community Centre Sunday evening. May 26th, at the Centre, with Mis. K. Cohen in charge of arrangements. All funds derived from the affair will go to the Centre building fund. THE WAR AT HOME B'NAI B'RITH T NOTES by Harold Turk Guest Columnist JIMMY LEONARD Are you proud to be an American? Are you glad that 3000 miles of water separate you from the holocaust that is Europe? Because we feel that your answer will be yes, the Americanization Committee, of which Brother Elry Stone is chairman, has planned a patriotic rally for the night of June 25th our regular meeting night, at the Y. M. H. A. The affair is being arranged by Brother Jimmy Leonard. Here is your chance to let down your hair and really wave the flag at a commemoration of Flag Day and Independence Day; with movies, plenty of martial music, the presentation of an American Flag to the lodge, and a truly excellent speaker to honor us, Mark Wilcox. In the light of present day world chaos, of ever growing nationalist feeling, of ever increasing "boring from within" and fifth column activity; the time has come for us all to seriously regard this democratic system which has permitted us such benevolent growth, and to rededicate ourselves to the great dream which has become a reality—to the ideals envisioned by the fathers of America for a free and independent peoples, regardless of race, color or creed.

At that meeting a complete report will be made on the Fifth District convention that was held at Roanokc, Virginia. and if any of the spirit that prevailed at the convention is manifested at our meeting, it should be an exceedingly interesting one Speaking about spirit, after I attending the convention I can readily understand what spirit means and how it drives men to victory and accomplishments Thank God that we B'nai B'riths are stirred and encouraged on to victory of a constructive nature. • • One of the keynotes of the convention was the election of our Brother Ike Levin as president of the Fifth District.

BRITAIN CRACKS DOWN ON FASCISTS RITUAL MURDER" POGROM IN WARSAW Belgrade (W'NS)—Details of a tearful pogrom in Nazi-occupied Poland as a result of which one Jew was lynched, and scores of Jews were beaten and tortured in the streets of Warsaw, were disclosed by a refugee who recently arrived here. The pogrom occurred on the eve of Passover when a Polish child was found murdered. Polish antiSemites immediately invaded the Jewish quarter and beat all Jews in the streets. One Jew, riding on a street car, was pulled off the car and lynched, the refugee said. A group of about 200 young Jews immediately organized to resist the anti-Semitic mob. During the melee, many of the antiSemites were beaten and started to withdraw when Nazipolice arrived and seized the resisting Jews. The Jews, the refugee said, were lined up with their faces to the wall and ordered to hold their hands above their heads. The Nazi police then fired into the air. Several of the Jews were reported to have suffered a nervous breakdown as a result. The refugee reported also that there are about 20,000 Jewish children, separated from their parents by the war or concentration camps, wandering about the highways of Nazi-held Poland. These children move from village to village begging for food and clothing. Many of the children, it was said, are in need of medical attention. The Beth El Sisterhood dance and water carnival was held Sunday night at the Mayflowers. Among those in charge of arrangements were Mr. and Mrs. Sol Rubin. Mr. and Mrs. A.

Mosley was seized at his apart: ment after plainclothes detectives raided headquarters of the British Union of Fscists where they found great quantities of anti-Semitic and Fascist literature. While their headquarters were being raided, British Fascists distributed leaflets, containing Mosley's ( message, apposing tfhe war on ] the ground that "this war is no quarrel of the British people, but a quarrel of Jewish finance." At the same time, it was learned that British officials are watching carefully the activities of the outlawed Irish Republican Army. The charge was made here that the Nazis are lending financial support to the I. R. A. and may attempt to occupy, with the help of the I. R.

Classes will be held on every Tuesday evening and only members of the Y. W. H. A. are eligible to attend. by JOSEPH A. BERMAN 1 Tie writer will be glad to answer any problem of his readers. Write to linn In e.u.of ihis newspaper) Today we continue suggestions to parents on voice control. The first step in changing or controlling voice must be in the control of breathing, learning how to let air come through our tubes, slowly and atan even volume while' we are talking. Singers spend a large portion of their early training in the practice of breath control. • PITCH: The low voice is 01 course more pleasing than the high voice. There is a feeling of annoyance when listening to a high'pitched voice. This is due to the fact that the higher the pitch, the more the number of vibrations rier second and therefore the harder we have to work our nervous systems to receive and respond to those tones. While low pitch is more pleasing to the ear. high %  eteh has a greater carrying qual'l'NFLECTION: A change of pilch within a word or a sentence is called "inflection." It is by inflection that we distinguish a question from a statement. In a question the voice goes up at the end; in a statement it remains at a level or falls. The same word given various inflections, will have entirely different meanings. Take for example, the word "yes." Say it as if you were giving a final answer to a serious and important question You will note that your pitch falls at a rapid rate. Now say yes as if inquiring whether or not a thing wore true. Say "yes" as if you were pleased at being asked to go somewhere. Say "yes in a doubtful way. Here wo have the same word, but with vastly different meanings. Perhaps the most difficult voice to listen to is the monotone the one whose voice noes on and on without any ups or downs for relief Sometimes monotone is due to a ark of musical ear and the inability to inflect one's tones. Sometimes it is dee to lack of vitality, energy and enthusiasm. It may also be due as has been shown in some recent experiments to lack of intelligence.

Announcement The Religious School picnic which was to have been hold this Sunday. June 2, will not be held, due to the fact that our usual picnic grounds were not available this year, and due* also to the fact that we felt a generous contribution to the Red Cross would be a most fitting substitute for the usual picnic expenses. The Red Cross contribution has already been sent by our Religious School.

Many papers winch are prepared and read al meetings or conventions prove boring, whereas the .-amo material given in a conversational tone would find eager listeners. VOLUME depends on how much air we let through our windpipes and out of our mouths at any given time. As change in pitch is related to change of ideas, so volume is related to emotions, rrom the extreme of being so excited that we cannot speak, a condition in which the muscles are so overstimulated that they become paralyzed, we find that increased excitement tends to increase volume. The angry man shouts; the frightened woman screams. A well controlled voice would load an observer to infer good emotional control. Speakers often confuse volume with carrying quality They also confuse volume with emphasis when volume may be and often it. used for emphasis. It may be so over used that it ceases to have its effect and bocomes a source of irritation. Often changing to a softer voice and a slower temno will effect the same emphasis and in a pleasanter way than resorting to shouting and pounding a table. Parents should make use of their knowledge of voice control and make it a part of the home training of their children. FOR FLOWERS FOR S P EC I A I. O CCASIONS call McAllister, Florist 629 S.

New Refugee
Plans Form
New York (WNS)Plans have
been made to provide alternative
channels of immigration to Pales-
tine and negotiations are now un-
i!( r way for establishing a new
route to North and South Ameri-
can counties, in the event of the
spread of war to the Mediterran-
ean, it was announced by Rabbis
Abba Hillel Silver and Jonah B.
Wise, national chairman of the
United Jewish Appeal, in a state-
ment outlining the effects of the
war upon the activities of the
Joint Distribution Committee, the
United Palestine Appeal and the
National Refugee Service, which
are the constituent agencies of the
nationwide United Jewish Appeal
campaign for $23,000,000.
An agreement has been reached
with the English and Russian
governments whereby refugee im-
migrants bound for Palestine
would leave from Stockholm and
Vilna and follow a route through
Odessa. Others would sail for
Palestine by way of the Port of
Constanza on the Black Sea.
Arrangements are being made
whereby refugees bound for the
Western hemisphere would travel
acrOM Russia to Siberia, where
they would go from Vladivostock
to Yokohama in Japan and from
there across the Pacific to the
Americas. Provision has thus
been made for the contingency of
the enlargement of the theatre of
war so that the avenues of escape
for Jewish refugees from the dan-
ger anil distress zones of the Eu-
ropean continent may be kept op-
en.
Rabbi Silver and Rabbi Wise point
out that not difficulties resulting
from the present European con-
flict, but a lack of funds today
stands in the way of the fullest
implementation of the programs
for emergency relief and rehabili-
tation in the war zones and other
parts of Kurope, refugee immi-
gration and settlement in Pales-
tine and refugee integration in
the United States.

Mr. Kopelowitz stated that
there is perhaps several hundred

some time before these are segre-

CONFER IN LONDON
I-ondon Pinchas Rutenberg,
president of Vaad Leumi (Jewish
National Council of Palestine) and
head of the Palestine Electric-
Corporation, has arrived here to
confer with Dr. Chaim Weizmann,
president of the Jewish Agency
for Palestine, and with other Jew-
ish leaders and members of the
Jewish Agency Executive now in
this city.
London (WNS) With Italy's
formal participation in the Euro-
pean struggle on the si le of Ger-
many expected hourly, the official
Nazi radio broadcast a report
that Premier Mussolini intends to
demand Palestine when, and it'.
England is defi ated.
The Nazi announcer stated that
Palestine should belong to Italy
since the latter country was the
rightful protector of Islam."
The Hitler spokesman said that
England, with the aid of the Jews.
was seeking to dominate the Ar-
abs "in the same manner that
Great Britain and the Jews Bought
to dominate the peoples of Europe
before the advent of Hitler:"
Diplomatic circles here ventured
the opinion that Italy may be de-
manding Palestine as its price for
military intervention on the side
of Nazi Germany.
Anticipating Italy's ent^y into
the war, Great Britain is main-
taining a good part of i'.s fleet m
the Mediterranean and has re-en-
forced its troops now stationed in
Egypt and Palestine.

RECOGNIZED LEADERSHIP
After making an impressive record that speaks for itself, Stan-
ley C. Myers was drafted as president of the now Greater Miami Jew-
ish Federation for his third term.
Rendering years of service to the community first as head of one
group and then another, covering all phases, spiritual, civic and social,
he has had to sacrifice much of both his personal and professional life,
Realizing no personal gains and seeking no self glory, he has been
devoted to the cause of Federation since its inception, being one of
the prime factors in its organization. The progress Federation has
made under his direction is evident and while the success is due to no
one individual, it definitely takes the right kind of capable leadership
to be able to band people together and get the utmost in results from
them. It requires their respect and admiration for him as well as for
Federation,
Leadership is a scarcity. Many are the organizations that have
had to search for able officers instead of being able to select from a
volume of eligible timber.
That Stanley C. Myers was unanimously drafted for a "third term"
proves the recognition of his leadershipthe type Jewry sorely needs.

him a complete and speedy recov-
ery and also wish him every pos-

Another keynote of the convon-
St 06 ''"" "as ''"' l',t'otion of Brother
E. A. Pallot to the general com-

Pallot has done so much for Sho-
lem Lodge and has been so active
in State Federation activities of
B'nai B'rith that it is fitting and
proper that he now move into the
broader scope and activities of
B'nai B'rith His enthusiasm, abil-
ity and leadership should make
i him outstanding on that commit-
tee.

The Royal Palm Chapter of the

Nathan Adelnian with an "Ad-

fine work and service to that

won a (dace in the hearts of those
young growing boys and is to lie
commended for his untiring ef
forts as an organizer and leader.

Guest Columnist
JIMMY LEONARD
Are you proud to be an Ameri-
can? Are you glad that 3000
miles of water separate you from
the holocaust that is Europe? Be-
cause we feel that your answer
will be yes, the Americanization
Committee, of which Brother Elry
Stone is chairman, has planned a
patriotic rally for the night of
June 25th our regular meeting
night, at the Y. M. H. A. The
affair is being arranged by Broth-
er Jimmy Leonard.
Here is your chance to let down
your hair and really wave the
flag at a commemoration of Flag
Day and Independence Day; with
movies, plenty of martial music,
the presentation of an American
Flag to the lodge, and a truly
excellent speaker to honor us,
Mark Wilcox.
In the light of present day
world chaos, of ever growing na-
tionalist feeling, of ever increas-
ing "boring from within" and
fifth column activity; the time has
come for us all to seriously re-
gard this democratic system
which has permitted us such be-
nevolent growth, and to rededicate
ourselves to the great dream
which has become a realityto
the ideals envisioned by the fath-
ers of America for a free and in-
dependent peoples, regardless of
race, color or creed.
Remember the 25th of June!
Mark your calendars! There'll be
further details in subsequent col-
umns, but make it a date now!
Jimmy Leonard.

We are all looking forward to
the next regular business meet-
ing which will be held at the Y.
M. H. A. Tuesday night, June 11,
at 8:00 o'clock. At that meeting
a complete report will be made on
the Fifth District convention that
was held at Roanokc, Virginia. .
and if any of the spirit that pre-
vailed at the convention is mani-
fested at our meeting, it should be
an exceedingly interesting one
. Speaking about spirit, after
I attending the convention I can
readily understand what spirit
means and how it drives men to
victory and accomplishments .
Thank God that we B'nai B'riths
are stirred and encouraged on to
victory of a constructive nature.

One of the keynotes of the con-
vention was the election of our
Brother Ike Levin as president of
the Fifth District. I was thrilled,
as were the other delegates, while
we listened to Brother Stanley
Myers make the nominating
speech. Credit was properly giv-

BEHIND THE BLITZKREIG
Confidential information gathered by American military observ-
ers in Europe indicates that the biggest mistake Chamberlain made
in the last few months of his premiership was the letting out of Leslie
Hore-Belisha from the War Ministry ... If the army reforms Hore-
Belisha advocated had been carried out the British wouldn't have suf-
fered their fiasco in Norway and would have been able to give effective
aid t" Holland's arm;which, lacking that help, had to stop fighting
the Nazi invaders Incidentally, that was a heroic battle which the
little DulJh army, led by its Jewish commander-in-chief. General Ger-
ard Winkleman. put up against the mechanized and numerically vastly
superior Nazi forces An indication of trouble for the Balkans in
the very near future is seen in King Carol's precautionary move in
shipping off his Jewish friend Magda l.upescu to Ix>ndon Rumor
has it that efforts are being made to find her a refuge on this contin-
ent as quickly as possible latest story via the trans-Atlantic grape-
vine is that Italy's entry into the war on the Nazi side would start a
disastrous civil conflict in II Duce's country, a very large proportion
of (he people, though loyal supporters of the Fascist regime, being
thoroughly anti-Nazi ... If you still think that the stories of Nazi
espionage and fifth columns on this continent are exaggerated, and
even the experiences of various European ex-neutrals hasn't convinced
you. just remember that a recent purge of Nazis in Ecuador left that
country with practically no air force .
NAVAL NOTES
Rear Admiral Joseph K. Taussig, who recently startled the na-
tion by his statement that war between the United States and Japan
is inevitable, is the author of one of the Navy's famous phrases
It dates from the first world war. when be brought an American
squadron over to Europe and on his arrival was asked by British
naval authorities how soon he would be ready to go into action .
"Sir. we are now ready!" is what the Admiral said Because of
his brilliant" record in the service he was in line for the job of Com-
mander of the I'. S. Fleet some years ago hut the powers that be
decided that in this day and age it would be better not to have a
.lew in so prominent a position .

ganization goes throughand it looks \er\ much as if it willthe ZOA

with their aggressive campaign Thear latest action is the publica-
tion of a condensed popular version of William Ziff's "Rape of Pales-

his excruciatingly funny book, "Father Knows Better," Martin

BRITAIN CRACKS
DOWN ON FASCISTS
' RITUAL MURDER"
POGROM IN WARSAW
Belgrade (W'NS)Details of a
tearful pogrom in Nazi-occupied
Poland as a result of which one
Jew was lynched, and scores of
Jews were beaten and tortured in
the streets of Warsaw, were dis-
closed by a refugee who recently
arrived here.
The pogrom occurred on the eve
of Passover when a Polish child
was found murdered. Polish anti-
Semites immediately invaded the
Jewish quarter and beat all Jews
in the streets. One Jew, riding on
a street car, was pulled off the
car and lynched, the refugee said.
A group of about 200 young
Jews immediately organized to
resist the anti-Semitic mob. Dur-
ing the melee, many of the anti-
Semites were beaten and started
to withdraw when Nazi- police ar-
rived and seized the resisting
Jews. The Jews, the refugee said,
were lined up with their faces to
the wall and ordered to hold their
hands above their heads. The
Nazi police then fired into the air.
Several of the Jews were report-
ed to have suffered a nervous
breakdown as a result.
The refugee reported also that
there are about 20,000 Jewish
children, separated from their
parents by the war or concentra-
tion camps, wandering about the
highways of Nazi-held Poland.
These children move from village
to village begging for food and
clothing. Many of the children,
it was said, are in need of medic-
al attention.
The Beth El Sisterhood dance
and water carnival was held Sun-
day night at the Mayflowers.
Among those in charge of ar-
rangements were Mr. and Mrs. Sol
Rubin. Mr. and Mrs. A. Levin,
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Goodmark,
Mr. and Mrs. Ben Ryder Mrs. Ira
May and Sam Scher.
Flag Day celebration of B'nai

himself as a refugee from Nazi
Germany and recently predicted
that the Nazis would be defeated
in the war. Also arrested was
Adofl Charles Kunz, former coun-
selor of the Austrian Legation
and a son-in-law of Lord Rad-
stock.
Mosley was seized at his apart- :
ment after plainclothes detectives
raided headquarters of the British
Union of Fscists where they found
great quantities of anti-Semitic
and Fascist literature. While
their headquarters were being
raided, British Fascists distribut-
ed leaflets, containing Mosley's (
message, apposing tfhe war on ]
the ground that "this war is no '
quarrel of the British people, but
a quarrel of Jewish finance."
At the same time, it was learned
that British officials are watching
carefully the activities of the out-
lawed Irish Republican Army.
The charge was made here that
the Nazis are lending financial
support to the I. R. A. and may
attempt to occupy, with the help
of the I. R. A., Ireland for an at-
tack on England.

does not participate in an elec-

Come with your wives and enjoy a

We therefore expect every mem-

i one who dares to give the petty
excuse for absence at our election
that he does not desire to become
engaged in partisanship because
of personality, shows definite J *
signs of childishness and imma-
turity. Where an institution is

cise his voting power. We ex-

Wins Two and Ties One
Our softball team certainly
made a good start last week.
In a double header with Claud
Neon and Richmond Clothiers,
the Y came out on top. Under the
able leadership of Mickey Lubel
and Doc Weinkle, the Y team
promises to be a leader in the
league when the count is taken.
On Tuesday night, last, the Y
played a 10-10 tie with Lee-Johns

to every member of the team and
hope that they will carry on the
fine sportsmanship that they have
started.
Our aim is to give every player
an opportunity. While we would
like to have a winning team, we
are more interested in the sport.
Watch the Y bulletins from prac-
tice game announcements and if

Today we continue suggestions
to parents on voice control.
The first step in changing or
controlling voice must be in the
control of breathing, learning how
to let air come through our tubes,
slowly and at- an even volume
while' we are talking. Singers
spend a large portion of their ear-
ly training in the practice of
breath control.
PITCH: The low voice is 01
course more pleasing than the
high voice. There is a feeling of
annoyance when listening to a
high'pitched voice. This is due to
the fact that the higher the pitch,
the more the number of vibrations
rier second and therefore the hard-
er we have to work our nervous
systems to receive and respond to
those tones. While low pitch is
more pleasing to the ear. high
eteh has a greater carrying qual-
'l'NFLECTION: A change of
pilch within a word or a sentence
is called "inflection." It is by in-
flection that we distinguish a
question from a statement. In a
question the voice goes up at
the end; in a statement it re-
mains at a level or falls. The same
word given various inflections,
will have entirely different mean-
ings. Take for example, the
word "yes." Say it as if you were
giving a final answer to a serious
and important question You will
note that your pitch falls at a
rapid rate. Now say yes as if
inquiring whether or not a thing
wore true. Say "yes" as if you
were pleased at being asked to go
somewhere. Say "yes in a
doubtful way. Here wo have the
same word, but with vastly differ-
ent meanings. Perhaps the most
difficult voice to listen to is the
monotone the one whose voice
noes on and on without any ups
or downs for relief Sometimes
monotone is due to a ark of mus-
ical ear and the inability to in-
flect one's tones. Sometimes it
is dee to lack of vitality, energy
and enthusiasm. It may also be
due as has been shown in some
recent experiments to lack of in-
telligence. Range of pitch in con

ervations are $3.50 per person,

Announcement
The Religious School picnic
which was to have been hold this
Sunday. June 2, will not be held,
due to the fact that our usual pic-
nic grounds were not available
this year, and due* also to the fact
that we felt a generous contribu-
tion to the Red Cross would be a
most fitting substitute for the
usual picnic expenses. The Red
Cross contribution has already
been sent by our Religious School.
Sisterhood Installation Luncheon
A most delightful installation
luncheon marked the closing of a
successful year Tor the Sister-
hood. The luncheon held on Mon-
day, May 27th, at Kaplan Hall,
was beautifully arranged and pre-
pared by a committee, consisting
of Mrs. B. P.. Berkeley as chair-
man, assisted by Mrs. A. E. Berk-
eley, Mrs. Jack Bernstein. Mrs.
Jan Jacobs, Mrs. Jos. L. Arkin,
Mrs. Sam S. Lavine, Mrs. B. W.
Slote, Mrs. Arthur Treister.
The spiritual part, in ^the form
of the program, was capably han-
dled by Mrs. J. Gerald Lewis, who
acted as toastmistress. Mrs. Hen-
ry D. Williams, who installed the
officers; Mrs. Harold B. Spaet,
retiring president, who reported
on the year's work; Mrs. Morris
Plant, chairman of the Religious
School, who outlined the year's
work in the Religious School, Mrs.
Max Steuer, incoming president,
who delivered her pledge and hope
for the coming year; and Mrs. I.
M. Weinstein, who presented an
original play on Sisterhood af-
fairs, assisted by Miss Maxine
Kanter. Mrs. Henry D. Williams,
Mrs. Frank A. Perlman and Mrs.
Gordon Davis. The musical por-
tion of the program was presented
by Lily Drucker and the opening
and closing prayers were deliv-
ered by Dr. Kaplan and Rabbi
Zwitman.

versation, tends to set off one
Idea against another. It makes
for Variety and keeps the listen-
er interested. Many papers winch
are prepared and read al meetings
or conventions prove boring,
whereas the .-amo material given
in a conversational tone would
find eager listeners.
VOLUME depends on how much
air we let through our windpipes
and out of our mouths at any
given time. As change in pitch is
related to change of ideas, so vol-
ume is related to emotions, rrom
the extreme of being so excited
that we cannot speak, a condition
in which the muscles are so over-
stimulated that they become par-
alyzed, we find that increased ex-
citement tends to increase volume.
The angry man shouts; the fright-
ened woman screams. A well
controlled voice would load an ob-
server to infer good emotional
control. Speakers often confuse
volume with carrying quality
They also confuse volume with
emphasis when volume may be
and often it. used for emphasis.
It may be so over used that it
ceases to have its effect and bo-
comes a source of irritation. Of-
ten changing to a softer voice
and a slower temno will effect the
same emphasis and in a pleasant-
er way than resorting to shout-
ing and pounding a table.
Parents should make use of
their knowledge of voice control
and make it a part of the home
training of their children.

he didn't have anything to

had he wouldn't pay .
