HUNGARIANS URGE
"ANTI-JEWISH DAY"
Geneva (WNS) Hungarian
Nazis are urging the government
to set aside one day to be known
as "Anti-Jewish Day," during
which the country would observe
a rigid boycott of all Jewish
shops, it was learned here.
The Nazis argue that the ob-
servance of a boycott day, simi-
lar to one held in Nazi Germany
shortly after Hitler came to pow-
er, will demonstrate the solidar-
ity between Hungary and Ger-
many. The anti-Jewish boycott
day held in Germany several
years ago was the signal for anti-
Jewish riots throughout the
country.

THE JEWISH HOMELAND GOES ON
To those who have been under the impression that the
war has caused many Jews to flee from Palestine it will come
as a surprise to learn that the Holy Land's Jewish population
has increased 24,000 in the last 11 months of the war. This has
been announced in Jerusalem by Eliahu Dobkin, director of the
Jewish Agency's Immigration Department. The 24,000 includ-
ed 16,000 immigrantslegal and illegaland a natural in-
crease of 8,000. Over the past 22 years the Jewish population
has increased tenfold, from 50,000 to 500,000.
These figures speak well for the vitality of the Jewish
homeland in the midst of the war. With Haifa already bombed
three times and with the war in the Near East assuming larger
proportions, there is no doubt that Palestine is not the most
comfortable place in the world in which to live today. Un-
doubtedly, the population must be going without many lux- j
uries and conveniences as a result of the sharp restriction of
imports.
But still refugees work desperately to find their way to
Palestine. They seek to arrange passage through Soviet Rus-
sia, or try to cross Turkey and Syria.
The force that drives European Jews to Palestine is strong-
er than any fear of air raids or material inconvenience. The
war has brought vindication more strongly than ever to those
who argued the need for such a haven. War or no war, the
Jewish homeland goes on.
HUMANITY RISES
by
CYRIL A. SMACK
Let me speak to the people whose wide open eyes
Might have seen what was coming on earth.
Let me speak to the people who might have been wise
In encouraging justice and worth.
Let me sing, as a dirge, over frail, little things
Children, slain in the sand and the sod;
This the death for our babies the dictator brings,
In defiance of justice and God.
Peace is never attained by the forfeit of right,
For the blackmailer's gluttony grows.
And the bully is prone to exult in the plight
Of the fools who submit to his blows.
All our fathers obtained with their wisdom and grit
We can cast to the winds in a breath.
Men and nations go mad, but the same can't submit,
Or their choice is but madness or death.
There's a rotten heart growing. It kills as it grows
Chokes the good as it spreads on the earth.
If it lives and you live, as the calendar goes,
Tell me, what will survival be worth?
A nonentity> then, you will do as you're told.
You wiH wish you had dared to go down with the bold,
As you fawn, with the vile and the dumb.
Let the good of our manhood and womanhood rise
And assail all that threatens life's best
Let our pledge be, "We'll battle till Tyranny dies.
It shall know neither comfort or rest."
Not for long shall the plunderers pillage and take.
We'll emerge from this horrible night.
Let the perjurers pause; let the murderers quake,
For humanity rises to fight.
COUPLE OF LETTERS
By Al Segal
In the course of the week I re-
ceived two letters from two
widely separated people. Both
asked me whether I am a Jew.
Both called on me to confess
publicly that I am a Jew, if I
were one. It was as if I had
been caught in sin and must
make public confession thereof.
Of course, by now everybody
who reads this column has
guessed that I am indeed a Jew.
But I write another column in
the daily press. In that column
I write nothing Jewishly. I write
about cabbages and kings, seal-
ing wax and things. So it tell
recently that I wrote on compul-
sory military training. I rather
favored it for the proper defense
of the nation, considering the
way things are going in the
world.
This caused the two citizens
strongly to suspect that I must
be a Jew.
Jews, they wrote, want to drag
the country into war for the
money that's in it; Jews want re-
venge on Hitler. Therefore, since
1 have declared for conscription
I must be a Jew. Both chal-
lenged me: Tell us in your next
column whether you are a Jew
or not.

ple like them bein>; at large in a

INTRODUCTORY NOTE
Old Reliable Postal, who used to be our confrere in the
Seven Arts and now is B'nai B'rith's public relations wizard,
writes us as follows "It's hot and I'm on my vacation ... I
should be resting and forgetting all about your existence .
But I feel that you and your readersespecially your readers
need a break at least once a year. So here is my present
to you and thema guest column And mind you, I haven't
once mentioned the B'nai B'rith That's chivalry" ... So
here goes Bernard Postal's column.
POLITICAL PIECES
Congressman Sweeney (Democrat), who is suing certain
newspapers which published the Washington Merry-Go-
Rounds allegations that he made anti-Semitic remarks in
Washington, is being opposed in the coming election by
George Pillersdorf, Cleveland Jewish attorney Sweeney
now represents a district that covers a large part of Cleveland
. Sam Platt of Reno, Nevada is the Republican nominee
for United States Senator, running against Senator Key Pitt-
man Platt twice lost an election for the same office by less
than 50 votes Former Congressman Ben Goldzier of Phila-
delphia is making a come-back campaign this year Sam
Weiss of McKeesport, Pa., expects to be elected to Congress
on the Democratic ticket .

growth of a rumor that the Messiah is on the way The

Aryan laws have created a knotty legal problem because of
a certain Andreas Faragi Faragi, who is a lawyer, is of
pure Aryan stock, but some years ago became a convert to
Judaism Under the law "anyone who regards himself as a
Jew is to be treated as a Jew for the purposes of this law" .
But Faragi insists that he's an Aryan by race and a Jew by
religion Legal authorities claim he has a right to practice
because the law says a Jew "is one whose ancestors are not
of Aryan stock" ... If Faragi's claim is upheld he'll be the
iteracy. The other had mastered first Jewish Aryan The war is givinq the younq women

cies for the improvement of the
feeble-minded. Tnese, it ap-
peared, were two of the people
whom these agencies hadn't yet
reached.
But afterward I began to wor-
ry about them. The feebler
minds are as dangerous as
strong, evil ones, if a lot of them
happen to be around. The strong,
crooked minds grow big on the
weakness of the feebler ones
What impressed me was the
two letters seemed to come from
different layers of moronism.
One was written in a scrawl that
suggested that the writer had net
been able to attain eighth-grade
the typewriter and his typewrit-
ten letter was rather well done.
The latter was a white collar
man who had probably written
the letter in the office where he
works. The writer of the other
letter appeared to belong to the
deeper-down proletariat.
So it seemed that the idea
that there is something Jewish
in defending the United States
was having a considerable
spread. Here I sat seeing it
spread from the lower grade mo-
ron who hadn't yet mastered
simple orthography to the higher
grade moron who could use a
typewriter.
It was quite evident that these
weren't people who brood in the
solitude of their studies and
think out original ideas to give
mankind. I could feei quite sure
that the idea that the plan for
national defense was a Jewish
plot was not of their own think-
ing.
In fact, they aren't given to
thinking at all. The processes
of their minds are not conscious.
They are more like the garbage
can, which just stands in its cor-
ner and waits to receive what-
ever is thrown into it. Does the
garbage can discriminate? It
takes whatever is given it.
These minds had festered in
their dark corners and somebody
had come along and dropped in-
to each one the idea that this
movement to defend America
impregnably was of Jewish insti-
gation. The fact that these let-
ters were from two different
kinds of hands suggested that
more than one individual was
going about dropping this idea
into empty and receptive heads.
This is what troubled me. My
troubling was that of an Ameri-
can who is distressed at what is
going on in this country in this
hour of its danger. It is the same
kind of foul whispering that was
carried about in all the countries
of Europe until the time Hitler
was ready to pluck them.
It is the same technique of dis-
sension, suspicion, hate and, fin-
ally, division, that found these
countries defenseless and pros-
trate when Hitler's day came.
I, the Jew, can endure these
slanders. I have suffered much

THIS AND THAT
One of the best-known Jewish weeklies in the country is
on the verge of changing hands ... A schoolboy in Portland,
Me., whose family was for the past several years being sup-
ported in part by a Jewish judge, was recently caught dis-

of the famous family, scattered to the capitals of Europe from
Frankfort-am-Main, they started dynasties that stayed put in

America too Another brother, Baron Louis, has taken up

the British wing of the family This is the first time that Roth-

nineteenth century, and so all they did was to send an agent
here, the original August Belmont .

FLORIDA PLANS
DEFENSE UNITS
Florida is making plans for
state defense units, it was re
vealed Tuesday in a letter re-
ceived from Maj. C. H. Day, act-
ing adjutant general of the
Fourth Corps area in Atlanta, by
H. E. Brendla, commander of
William A. McAllister post, Vet-
erans of Foreign Wars.
Commander Brendla, in a let-
ter to the Fourth Corps area
headquarters, advised the army
of the formation of the McAllis-
ter Volunteers, a civilian drill
unit.
"The authorities of each state
within the Fourth Corps area
have been notified that this
headquarters is ready at all times
to advise and assist them in the
preparation of state defense
plans," Major Day wrote.
"A recent letter from the gov-
ernor of Florida indicates that
this state is formulating plans
for state defense units.
"The patriotism and interest of
yourself and the members of your
group as exemplified in the for-
mation of the McAllister Volun-
teers is to be commended."

"I would greatly prefer to say
that we are safe in this country

vinced that what is taking place
today in many areas of the earth

form the civilized world as we

which lawlessness, violence and
force will reign supreme, as they
did a thousand years ago. The

and to a lesser extent Norway
and Holland, can, in peacetime,
live without large imports of
food. They are now threatened
with a scarcity. It is because
their invaders ravaged their
countries and looted their provis-
ions. Whatever they might re-
ceive from the outside world
would simply provide fresh booty
for their conquerors. Nor would
any German assurances to the
contrary improve matters, since
Hitler and his subordinates have
openly declared that they do not
recognize it as a duty to keep

Maurice Moscovitch, interna-

died at the age of seventy while
he was engaged in an important
role in RKO's "Dance. Girl,
Dance." Moscovitch was playing
the part of a dancing teacher in
the picture and already had
worked several weeks in the
film. His death necessitates en-
tire reshooting of all the se-
quences in which he appeared,
since the character he was por-
traying must appear in several
more scenes in addition to those
he already had done. The iron-
ical part of this story is the fact
that the final week's shooting for
Mr. Moscovitch included a scene
portryaing his death.
BLOCKADE
"No one is going to say that
the blockade is free of objec-
tions. It certainly is not. All
that may be maintained truthful-
ly is that, compared with other
operations of war, it is more mer-
ciful and less horrible. It may
be said that it falls with especial
force with the weakest of the
population. But that, after all,
is due to the decision of the
blockaded power. It is their gov-
ernment which determines how
the available necessities are to
be distributed, and if they choose
to give the largest share to the
fighting forces, that is their re-
sponsibility Why should the
victims of German violence now
be deprived of food by the ene-
mies of Germany? Their case is
certainly a very hard one. The
answer is that it is Germans, not
their adversaries, who have tak-
en and are keeping food from
the occupied countries. Poland,

ENLISTMENT TERMS
NOT YET KNOWN
London (Palcor Agency) In
reply to a question by Richard R.
Stokes, Laborite, as to whether
persons enlisting in the Pales-
tinian units now being formed in
the army will be required to
serve outside Palestine or merely
in their own country. Sir Edward
Grigg, undersecretary for war,
said in the House of Commons
that he could not yet answer the
query, inasmuch as the terms of
enlistment of Palestinian com-
panies and other units had not
yet been settled.

Thanks to the 25 or 30 fellows
who attended our bowling ses-
I sion at the Recreation Alleys

all Jewish women as "Rebecca.
Such a law is now in effect in
Nazi Germany.
The Slovakian government has
issued a decree forbidding Jews
to employ "Aryan" women under
40 years of age. Slovakia's "li-
quidation" of Jewish enterprises
has been proceeding at a slow
rate because of a shortage of
"Aryans" qualified to run Jew-
ish industrial and commercial
enterprises.

long as he didn't you'll get the
benefit of the hot news we have
on tap The obituary editor
of the New York Herald-Trib-
une, you'll be pleased to know,
has just compiled his obit on
Herr Hitler Hethe editor,
that isworked on it for a full
month and reports are that it is
a pippin Here's hoping there'll
be a chance to publish it soon
. Don't be surprised if even be-
fore this column reaches your
breakfast table you get the news
that the Zionist Organization of
America will move its headquar-
ters to Washington Some-
thing we've been meaning to re-
lay to you for quite some time is
that Jane Barnell, the bearded
lady known in the sideshows as
Lady Olga, had a Russian Jew-
ish father Jane's mother, on
the other hand, was half Irish
and half Catawba Indian .
We've been wondering, too,
whether Sam Abarbanell, press
agent for Republic Pictures, is a
descendant of Isaac Abarbanel.

Bowling like mad, Bob
Schweitzer, mainstay of the cel-
lar dwelling Blackies, came

last Tuesday at the Miami Re-
creation Alleys. Your scribe and
Murray Streit bowled high games
for the night with 336 and 330
sets respectively. In the other
matches of the evening the lead-
ing Supermen defeated the Sil-
verstteakl in two of three games
to increase their lead to eight
games, while the "Y" Rangers
bombed the Bombers in two of
three games.
Manager Jack Apte announced
that 'Vic Gerstel has donated all
prizes for the first, second and
third place winners. But four

ment will be concluded. Every-
one is cordially invited to come

Maurice Grossman Honored
The Greater Miami public paid
due covet to our executive direc-
tor. Maurice Grossman, last
Monday when more than 500
men. women, boys and girls
were present at a reception in his
honor. Practically every Jewish
civic leader was present to add
their congratulations. The Y. M.
H A. and its affiliated Divisions
gave those present a general re-
view of many of the'r achieve-
ments during Mr. Grossman's
tenure in office. To Dr. Sam
Beckman, chairman, and Al Pal-
lot, toastmaster, we owe a vote
of thanks for the splendid man-
ner in which the affair was han-
dled. Lets pray wo may all be
well so that next year we will
again celebrate Maurice Gross-
man Night.

Newi Around Town
If you are looking for a swell
time then may I suggest that you
folks purchase your tickets now

captain of the McAllister Home
Guard Volunteers, Congratula-
tions, Doc.

Home Camp
While you are reading these
lines, the Home Camp will have
had its closing exercises. At
this writing ample preparations
are being made for the same for
Thursday night. August 22nd.
Next week we shall give you
more details and tell you about
these exercises. However, at
this time. I want to express my
thanks to the person who is re-
sponsible for the success of this
great project. Mrs. Leon Lieber-
man, who has devoted her entire
summer, day and night, to make
this an outstanding success.
Not only did she supervise the
purchase of supplies and the
feeding of the children, but she
took an interest in every depart-
ment to see that things ran
smoothly. As chairman of the
Board, she has set an example
for diligent work. All of us at
the "Y" appreciate the work that
she is doing and wish her God
speed and success for what she
has done. Her husband. Leon,
worked hand in hand with her.
e
Forum Club
This group is making prepara-
tions to organize a debating
team and are now holding trial
debates. It is expected that in
the fall a speech clinic will
be held.
BAR ALSATIAN JEWS
FROM THEIR HOMES
Geneva (WNS)Nazi authori-
ties opened the frontier of Alsace
to permit Alsatian refugees now
in Switzerland to return to their
homes and jobs. Jews, however,
were not permitted to return.
The number of refugees has
been small because of reports
here of typhoid, smallpox and in-
fectious cattle diseases in the
Nazi-occupied territory. Alsatian
munitions factories are operating
day and night shifts, but many
other factories have shut down
as a result of a shortage of raw
materials.
Unemployed Alsatians receive
regular meals at Nazi army can-
teens in exchange for three days'
work each week in labor gangs
clearing up war damages. Those
regularly employed in labor
gangs receive one mark a day,
which amounts to a little more
than 40 cents.

more than this in all my time. I
have been burned and put to the
sword and had my throat cut. So
this is just another pain.
But I. the American, am wor-
ried: Can America endure
through these perils while rats
within and from without gnaw
at its foundations?
The feeble-minded were not
unprepared to believe that there
is something Jewish in the idea
of defending America adequate-
ly. About a year ago they were
hearing evil suspicions from the
mouth of one whose tongue had
been dedicated to speak only
that which was truth and that
which was clean and above re-
proach. Coughlin was imputing
a Jewish connotation to events in
the world. He was taking words
from the mouth of Goebbels "and
making them his own. One Sun-
day he faked a word picture of
mankind marching to battlefields
and being sacrificed behind Jew-
ish commanders singing Jewish
hymns.
So it becomes easy for the
feebler minds to believe whis-
perers who go about hunting
empty heads into which to plant
maggots of treason "This is
all a Jewish plotthis prepared-
ness for defense, this movement
for conscription. The Jews are
trying to drag you into war. You
must oppose for the defense of
America because it is something
Jewish."
It is made to order for Hitler,
even if he didn't plan it all him-
I self.
It is in accordance with his
blue-print for treason: You start
(whispering against Jews. Any
I lie will do but it must always be
a lie that connects Jews with au-
thority in the government. A lot
of people don't like Jews anyway
and if you make it strong enough
! their dislike for the Jews will
spill over on the government.
This is the spade work that opens
the way for tanks and mobilized
divisions. Prejudice, hate and
suspicion have paralyzed the de-
fenders.
Had I considered these letters
worthy of an answer I would
have said, Yes, I am a Jew and I
am in favor of conscription even
if it takes my sons. Your let-
ters make it even more convinc-
ing that America must be im-
pregnably defended! for on these
' letters I detect the finger-prints
of Hitler already in America.
(Incidentally, I am quite aware
that had I come out against con-
scription people of some other
groups would have written that
I must be a Jew because I am
against defending the country,
that I am a Communist and all
that, and that I should be made
to go back where I came from.)

TABLE TALK
(CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5i
NATURE OF FAITH
"This is a mysterious world,
and it presents itself to us as a
strange dualismlight and dark-
ness, right and wrong, good and j
evil, happiness and pain. Every-
thing comes in opposites. All
the great religions have seen life j
thus in terms of conflict.
"Now if in that dualism man
thinks that evil is the basic ele-
ment, then he faces the abyssmal
mystery of good. Where did
good come from in a world whose
basic element is evil?
"But if a man believes the
good to be the basic element in
reality, while he does face the
mystery of evil it may be that
in the end good can conquer evil,
triumph over it, transmute it,
and win a victory worthy of the
long travail of the ages. That is
what believing in God means. It
is not a neat, slick and varnished
creed; it is a venture of faith
and in a world where there is
mystery either way, good, and
not evil, is the basic and creative
factor at the heart of reality."
Rev. Dr. Harry Emerson Fos-
dick.
JEWISH WAR VETS
MEET AT BOSTON
Governor Leverett Saltonstall,
Senators Henry Cabot Lodge. Jr.,
and David I. Walsh, Mayor Mau-
rice J. Tobin of Boston, and
Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver will be
among the principal guest speak-
ers at the 45th annual encamp-
ment of the Jewish War Veter-
ans of the United States meet-
ing here Wednesday, August 28
through Sunday, September 1. it
was announced by Harold Seid-
enberg. president of the Jewish
War Veterans Convention Cor-
poration.
Reservations received indicat-
ed that more than 10,000 veterans
] and their families will attend the
Boston convention. The conven-
tion will formally open Wednes-
day morning, August 28, with an
address by Commander-in-chief
Edgar H. Burman. This will im-
mediately precede the first bus-
iness session of the convention.
That evening, the veterans will
be the guests of the Women's
Auxiliary at a reception and op-
en house. In the afternoon, the
Women's Auxiliary will tender a
tea, at the Hotel Vendome, to the
Gold Star Mothers of Boston and
vicinity.
HOPE
"One bright hope, it seems to
me, is that these dictators, sus-
picious now of each other, ene-
mies at heart right now, jealous
of each other, are going to fight
among themselves. They have
to. In their travel toward their
goal to control the world, they
are going to cross the path of an-
other dictator seeking to control
the world.
"And when the course of elim-
ination commences and they
fight each other, there will be a
brighter day than now exists for
democracy."Senator George W.
Norris.
SURVIVAL
"The survival of democracy in
the United States depends upon
the survival of free education
and of free religion. Democracy,
most complicated, most difficult,
and most delicate of all social
mechanisms, has never survived
where education and religion
were not free. Where the exer-
cise of free religion has not been
strong enough to counteract the
opportunity of conquest and the
subjugation of other men, dem-
ocracy has failed and imperial-
ism resulted. In such countries,
there may be democracy at
home where religion is free, but
not abroad where free religion
has not been taught. In general
we may say that democracy has
grown strong and weak in exact
proportion to the weakness or
strength of free religion."Hen-
ry Noble MacCracken, President,
Vassar College.
Dr. Federbusch, Chief Rabbi of Finland, who Visited the
United States Recently.

OPINION
"Concerning many things to-
day I would not hazard an opin-
ion as to whether George Wash-
ington would or would not ap-
prove them. I have no way of
knowing. But this I do know:
George Washington was a Mi-
son. If he were alive today and
remained true to the teachings
of Masonry he could not possi-
bly approve the action of the
Petain-Laval Government in out-
lawing Masonry, nor could he
approve that government's es-
pousal of Hitler's anti-Semitism."
'Professor Clyde R. Miller, Co-
lumbia University.
UNITY
"We believe In our fellow-
Americans and their ability to
act calmly, decisively and cour-
ageously in any crisis or emer-
gency. The fact that so many
national organizations, represent-
ing a cross section of America,
join together vigorously, without
regard to creeds or religion gives
the lie to those who say there is
no unity and strength in democ-
racy."Dr.' Frank Kingdon.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1940 *Jewisti Florid San -"> SHY 1. S. ITALIANS ABE UNPROTECTED London (W N S) — Lamenting the "persecution" of Italians in the United States, the influential newspaper, Corriere della Sera, charged that "the psychosis of the fifth column has conquered even America. It is gross propaganda—the Jewish element at work."' In a leading editorial, the paper said: "Unjustified measures are being taken against Italians and Germans. An Italian grocer is reported to have said that there is no one to protect his countrymen in America because Roosevelt in his speeches against the fifth column sows hatred and their political representatives, beginning with LaGuardia, have all betrayed them. "The hardest hit by these exsions of jingoism are peaceful immigrants who, even if they nave been 20 or 30 years in America, have never managed to .string together more than 300 words Of Yankee idiom Mil| Major Day sai( that a Qf Iran of Italians.

Day, acting adjutant general of the Fourth Corps area in Atlanta, by H. E. Brendla, commander of William A. McAllister post, Veterans of Foreign Wars. Commander Brendla, in a letter to the Fourth Corps area headquarters, advised the army of the formation of the McAllister Volunteers, a civilian drill unit. "The authorities of each state within the Fourth Corps area have been notified that this headquarters is ready at all times to advise and assist them in the preparation of state defense plans," Major Day wrote. "A recent letter from the governor of Florida indicates that this state is formulating plans for state defense units. "The patriotism and interest of yourself and the members of your group as exemplified in the formation of the McAllister Volunteers is to be commended."

Thousands of poor laborers ire reNATIONAL SAFETY "At Havana we forged new instrumentalities of continental defense. These will be of vast importance to our nation and to every American nation. But there are other and immense tasks still before us. "I would greatly prefer to say that we are safe in this country and in this hemisphere from outside danger. But I am firmly convinced that what is taking place today in many areas of the earth is a relentless attempt to transform the civilized world as we have known it into a world in which lawlessness, violence and force will reign supreme, as they did a thousand years ago. The people of this country cannot recognize too soon this fact and its overwhelming significance for our national safety and for the maintenance of our national institutions."—Secretary of State Cordell Hull. and to a lesser extent Norway and Holland, can, in peacetime, live without large imports of food. They are now threatened with a scarcity. It is because their invaders ravaged their countries and looted their provisions. Whatever they might receive from the outside world would simply provide fresh booty for their conquerors. Nor would any German assurances to the contrary improve matters, since Hitler and his subordinates have openly declared that they do not recognize it as a duty to keep pacts with foreign governments." —Lord Cecil. HITLER'S SWASTIKA OF S EMITI C ORIGIN Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency)—Even the swastika filched by Hitler from historic records has been proved to be of pure Semitic origin. The excavations completed on June 7th at Tell el Jeriebah (Napoleon's Hill), between Tel Aviv and Petach Tikvah, has brought to light a wealth of material which Professor Eleazar Sukenik of the Hebrew University will now study at his Department of Archaeology. His field expedition had conducted the "dig" on this ancient site. A broken earthenware jug of the Bronze Age, 1.400 B. C.

NAZI AMBASSADOR SAILS FOR GERMANY Los Angeles (WNS)—Dr. Gerhard Alois Westrick, ace Nazi trouble shooter sent here to promote better business relations with Germany, sailed for home aboard the Japanese motorship Nitta Maru. The Nazi agent was accompanied by his wife, their two sons, and his secretary, Baroness Imgard von Wagenheim. Following disclosure of his activities in America, the Nazi trade counselor departed secretly from New York. His stay in the United States turned out to be a boomerang as a result of the criticism his presence has evoked. Dr. Westrick's friendship with Captain Torkild Rieber, chairman of the board of directors of the Texas Corporation, was so severely condemned that Mr. Rieber was forced to hand in his resignation. at the Dade county armory, N. W. Seventh avenue and Twenty-eighth street. Approximately 250 men and boys attend the drill periods. Anyone desiring to cooperate with the Home Guard Unit in the donation of uniforms, are requested to communicate with The Jewish Floridian. WELL KNOWN STAR PLAYS LAST ROLE LETTER SERVICE .i. r. .. !30 3 R4H7 Maurice Moscovitch, internationally known character actor, died at the age of seventy while he was engaged in an important role in RKO's "Dance. Girl, Dance." Moscovitch was playing the part of a dancing teacher in the picture and already had worked several weeks in the film. His death necessitates entire reshooting of all the sequences in which he appeared, since the character he was portraying must appear in several more scenes in addition to those he already had done. The ironical part of this story is the fact that the final week's shooting for Mr. Moscovitch included a scene portryaing his death. BLOCKADE "No one is going to say that the blockade is free of objections. It certainly is not. All that may be maintained truthfully is that, compared with other operations of war, it is more merciful and less horrible. It may be said that it falls with especial force with the weakest of the population. But that, after all, is due to the decision of the blockaded power. It is their government which determines how the available necessities are to be distributed, and if they choose to give the largest share to the fighting forces, that is their responsibility Why should the victims of German violence now be deprived of food by the enemies of Germany? Their case is certainly a very hard one. The answer is that it is Germans, not their adversaries, who have taken and are keeping food from the occupied countries. Poland, PREVENTIVE "Whom do we fear?" "Is it England?" "Are we making all of these preparations for fear of England, with her back to the wall, fighting the last great fight for democracy on the other side of the ocean? "Do we believe that England somehow will turn and train her guns and men and her ships toward America's shores and invade us? "Do we fear Canada with whom we have lived in peace for over a hundred years? "No, this rearming for national defense as advocated by the people of this country is being done for just one purpose, and that is to keep the totalitarian germs of Europe and Asia from the shores of America. "Your people and my people have been migrating to this land of freedom and opportunity for the last three hundred years. They left their homes in Europe to escape tyranny, oppression, intolerance and persecution. It is our job, with unanimity of thought and action, to keep autocracy in the place of its birth." —Senator Scott W. Lucas.

Below is to be seen part of the crowd which welcomed the Danish monarch. Today both king and synagogue are under Nazi thumb. TABLE TALK (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5i NATURE OF FAITH "This is a mysterious world, and it presents itself to us as a strange dualism—light and darkness, right and wrong, good and j evil, happiness and pain. Everything comes in opposites. All the great religions have seen life j thus in terms of conflict. "Now if in that dualism man thinks that evil is the basic element, then he faces the abyssmal mystery of good. Where did good come from in a world whose basic element is evil? "But if a man believes the good to be the basic element in reality, while he does face the mystery of evil it may be that in the end good can conquer evil, triumph over it, transmute it, and win a victory worthy of the long travail of the ages. That is what believing in God means. It is not a neat, slick and varnished creed; it is a venture of faith and in a world where there is mystery either way, good, and not evil, is the basic and creative factor at the heart of reality."— Rev. Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick. JEWISH WAR VETS MEET AT BOSTON Governor Leverett Saltonstall, Senators Henry Cabot Lodge. Jr., and David I. Walsh, Mayor Maurice J. Tobin of Boston, and Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver will be among the principal guest speakers at the 45th annual encampment of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States meeting here Wednesday, August 28 through Sunday, September 1. it was announced by Harold Seidenberg. president of the Jewish War Veterans Convention Corporation. Reservations received indicated that more than 10,000 veterans ] and their families will attend the Boston convention. The convention will formally open Wednesday morning, August 28, with an address by Commander-in-chief Edgar H. Burman. This will immediately precede the first business session of the convention. That evening, the veterans will be the guests of the Women's Auxiliary at a reception and open house. In the afternoon, the Women's Auxiliary will tender a tea, at the Hotel Vendome, to the Gold Star Mothers of Boston and vicinity. HOPE "One bright hope, it seems to me, is that these dictators, suspicious now of each other, enemies at heart right now, jealous of each other, are going to fight among themselves. They have to. In their travel toward their goal to control the world, they are going to cross the path of another dictator seeking to control the world. "And when the course of elimination commences and they fight each other, there will be a brighter day than now exists for democracy."—Senator George W. Norris. SURVIVAL "The survival of democracy in the United States depends upon the survival of free education and of free religion. Democracy, most complicated, most difficult, and most delicate of all social mechanisms, has never survived where education and religion were not free. Where the exercise of free religion has not been strong enough to counteract the opportunity of conquest and the subjugation of other men, democracy has failed and imperialism resulted. In such countries, there may be democracy at home where religion is free, but not abroad where free religion has not been taught. In general we may say that democracy has grown strong and weak in exact proportion to the weakness or strength of free religion."—Henry Noble MacCracken, President, Vassar College. Dr. Federbusch, Chief Rabbi of Finland, who Visited the United States Recently. TRANSPORT ACTIVITY NOTED IN PALESTINE Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)— From January to July, 1940 there were 700 vehicles registered in Palestine, compared with 641 in the first half of 1939 and 611 in the first half of 1938. Most of these vehicles were private automobiles, 224 were trucks. 39 buses and three tractors.

I have no way of knowing. But this I do know: George Washington was a Mison. If he were alive today and remained true to the teachings of Masonry he could not possibly approve the action of the Petain-Laval Government in outlawing Masonry, nor could he approve that government's espousal of Hitler's anti-Semitism." '—Professor Clyde R. Miller, Columbia University. UNITY "We believe In our fellowAmericans and their ability to act calmly, decisively and courageously in any crisis or emergency. The fact that so many national organizations, representing a cross section of America, join together vigorously, without regard to creeds or religion gives the lie to those who say there is no unity and strength in democracy."—Dr.' Frank Kingdon.

SHOCHET Managing Editor Entered as second class matter July 4, 1930 at the Post Office of Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR $ 2.00 SIX MONTHS $ 1.00 VOLUME 13 NUMBER 34 FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1940 i TUB THE JEWISH HOMELAND GOES ON To those who have been under the impression that the war has caused many Jews to flee from Palestine it will come as a surprise to learn that the Holy Land's Jewish population has increased 24,000 in the last 11 months of the war. This has been announced in Jerusalem by Eliahu Dobkin, director of the Jewish Agency's Immigration Department. The 24,000 included 16,000 immigrants—legal and illegal—and a natural increase of 8,000. Over the past 22 years the Jewish population has increased tenfold, from 50,000 to 500,000. These figures speak well for the vitality of the Jewish homeland in the midst of the war. With Haifa already bombed three times and with the war in the Near East assuming larger proportions, there is no doubt that Palestine is not the most comfortable place in the world in which to live today. Undoubtedly, the population must be going without many luxj uries and conveniences as a result of the sharp restriction of imports. But still refugees work desperately to find their way to Palestine. They seek to arrange passage through Soviet Russia, or try to cross Turkey and Syria. The force that drives European Jews to Palestine is stronger than any fear of air raids or material inconvenience. The war has brought vindication more strongly than ever to those who argued the need for such a haven. War or no war, the Jewish homeland goes on. HUMANITY RISES by CYRIL A. SMACK Let me speak to the people whose wide open eyes Might have seen what was coming on earth. Let me speak to the people who might have been wise In encouraging justice and worth. Let me sing, as a dirge, over frail, little things— Children, slain in the sand and the sod; This the death for our babies the dictator brings, In defiance of justice and God. Peace is never attained by the forfeit of right, For the blackmailer's gluttony grows. And the bully is prone to exult in the plight Of the fools who submit to his blows. All our fathers obtained with their wisdom and grit We can cast to the winds in a breath. Men and nations go mad, but the same can't submit, Or their choice is but madness or death. There's a rotten heart growing. It kills as it grows— Chokes the good as it spreads on the earth. If it lives and you live, as the calendar goes, Tell me, what will survival be worth? A nonentity> then, you will do as you're told. You wiH wish you had dared to go down with the bold, As you fawn, with the vile and the dumb. Let the good of our manhood and womanhood rise And assail all that threatens life's best Let our pledge be, "We'll battle till Tyranny dies. It shall know neither comfort or rest." Not for long shall the plunderers pillage and take. We'll emerge from this horrible night. Let the perjurers pause; let the murderers quake, For humanity rises to fight. COUPLE OF LETTERS By Al Segal In the course of the week I received two letters from two widely separated people. Both asked me whether I am a Jew. Both called on me to confess publicly that I am a Jew, if I were one. It was as if I had been caught in sin and must make public confession thereof. Of course, by now everybody who reads this column has guessed that I am indeed a Jew. But I write another column in the daily press. In that column I write nothing Jewishly. I write about cabbages and kings, sealing wax and things. So it tell recently that I wrote on compulsory military training. I rather favored it for the proper defense of the nation, considering the way things are going in the world. This caused the two citizens strongly to suspect that I must be a Jew. Jews, they wrote, want to drag the country into war for the money that's in it; Jews want revenge on Hitler. Therefore, since 1 have declared for conscription I must be a Jew. Both challenged me: Tell us in your next column whether you are a Jew or not. I should have laughed at people like them bein>; at large in a Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHINEAS J. BIRON) INTRODUCTORY NOTE Old Reliable Postal, who used to be our confrere in the Seven Arts and now is B'nai B'rith's public relations wizard, writes us as follows "It's hot and I'm on my vacation ... I should be resting and forgetting all about your existence But I feel that you and your readers—especially your readers —need a break at least once a year. So here is my present to you and them—a guest column And mind you, I haven't once mentioned the B'nai B'rith That's chivalry" ... So here goes Bernard Postal's column. POLITICAL PIECES Congressman Sweeney (Democrat), who is suing certain newspapers which published the Washington Merry-GoRounds allegations that he made anti-Semitic remarks in Washington, is being opposed in the coming election by George Pillersdorf, Cleveland Jewish attorney Sweeney now represents a district that covers a large part of Cleveland Sam Platt of Reno, Nevada is the Republican nominee for United States Senator, running against Senator Key Pittman Platt twice lost an election for the same office by less than 50 votes Former Congressman Ben Goldzier of Philadelphia is making a come-back campaign this year Sam Weiss of McKeesport, Pa., expects to be elected to Congress on the Democratic ticket OVERSEAS REPORT In Smyrna, Turkey, the Jews are excited because of the growth of a rumor that the Messiah is on the way The country that is" spending" mil lions recent earthquakes, the sufferings of Jews in Europe and the upon millions of dollars on agonSabbatai Zvi tradition in Smyrna are responsible for the tremendous wave of mystical feeling there But Realpolitiker are afraid that it's Hitler who is coming ... A letter sent from Rumania to a Jew in Lodz, in Nazi-occupied Poland, has been returned to the sender with the envelope stamped: "Reason for non-delivery—addressee resides in ghetto" Hungary's Aryan laws have created a knotty legal problem because of a certain Andreas Faragi Faragi, who is a lawyer, is of pure Aryan stock, but some years ago became a convert to Judaism Under the law "anyone who regards himself as a Jew is to be treated as a Jew for the purposes of this law" But Faragi insists that he's an Aryan by race and a Jew by religion Legal authorities claim he has a right to practice because the law says a Jew "is one whose ancestors are not of Aryan stock" ... If Faragi's claim is upheld he'll be the iteracy. The other had mastered first Jewish Aryan The war is givinq the younq women the tvnnwntpr nnrt hie tvnoitnt. n%  t o A < • i !" ~ .'. .,,.. Zionists of bouth Africa a break ... So many of the leaders of the Zionist Youth Movement have joined the army that women have been appointed to important executive posts which they never before held cies for the improvement of the feeble-minded. Tnese, it appeared, were two of the people whom these agencies hadn't yet reached. But afterward I began to worry about them. The feebler minds are as dangerous as strong, evil ones, if a lot of them happen to be around. The strong, crooked minds grow big on the weakness of the feebler ones What impressed me was the two letters seemed to come from different layers of moronism. One was written in a scrawl that suggested that the writer had net been able to attain eighth-grade the typewriter and his typewritten letter was rather well done. The latter was a white collar man who had probably written the letter in the office where he works. The writer of the other letter appeared to belong to the deeper-down proletariat. So it seemed that the idea that there is something Jewish in defending the United States was having a considerable spread. Here I sat seeing it spread from the lower grade moron who hadn't yet mastered simple orthography to the higher grade moron who could use a typewriter. It was quite evident that these weren't people who brood in the solitude of their studies and think out original ideas to give mankind. I could feei quite sure that the idea that the plan for national defense was a Jewish plot was not of their own thinking. In fact, they aren't given to thinking at all. The processes of their minds are not conscious. They are more like the garbage can, which just stands in its corner and waits to receive whatever is thrown into it. Does the garbage can discriminate? It takes whatever is given it. These minds had festered in their dark corners and somebody had come along and dropped into each one the idea that this movement to defend America impregnably was of Jewish instigation. The fact that these letters were from two different kinds of hands suggested that more than one individual was going about dropping this idea into empty and receptive heads. This is what troubled me. My troubling was that of an American who is distressed at what is going on in this country in this hour of its danger. It is the same kind of foul whispering that was carried about in all the countries of Europe until the time Hitler was ready to pluck them. It is the same technique of dissension, suspicion, hate and, finally, division, that found these countries defenseless and prostrate when Hitler's day came. I, the Jew, can endure these slanders. I have suffered much (CONTINUED ON PAGE 7) THIS AND THAT One of the best-known Jewish weeklies in the country is on the verge of changing hands ... A schoolboy in Portland, Me., whose family was for the past several years being supported in part by a Jewish judge, was recently caught distributing anti-Semitic literature ... A German-Jewish refugee girl is a member of the Methodist Epworth League in Wendell Willkie's home town of Elwood, Ind. The only woolen talith factory in Europe has just been started in London by two refugees, one a Hungarian and the other a Czech The owners belong to families engaged in talith-making for generations Until the war woolen talithim were made only in Czechc* Slovakia and Poland THE FALL OF THE ROTHSCHILDS When the sons of Mayer Amschal Rothschild, the founder of the famous family, scattered to the capitals of Europe from Frankfort-am-Main, they started dynasties that stayed put in London, Paris, Vienna, Berlin and Naples ... But European War Number Two has been responsible for a new Rothschild dispersion Baron Edouard Rothschild, head of the French branch of the family, is now in the United States Eugene Rothschild, scion of a Vienna branch of the family, who had lived in Czechoslovakia for many years, is also in America His brother. Baron Alphonse, formerly of Vienna, fled to America too Another brother, Baron Louis, has taken up residence in Argentina Baron Maurice Rothschild, son of the late Edmond de Rothschild, has found a haven in England, as has his cousin Robert de Rothschild ...

FILM IN BUCHAREST LEADS TO RIOTS London (WNS)—The showing of a violently anti-Semitic Nazi film in Bucharest movie houses has resulted in scores of outbreaks against Jews in the streets of the Rumanian capital, it was reported here. The film purports to show how Jews use the blood of Gentile children for religious purposes. The film repeats every known Nazi charge against the Jews. Audiences become so enraged that the police have to be called to preserve peace. i: w £ HUNGARIANS URGE "ANTI -JEW ISH DAY" Geneva (WNS)— Hungarian Nazis are urging the government to set aside one day to be known as "Anti-Jewish Day," during which the country would observe a rigid boycott of all Jewish shops, it was learned here. The Nazis argue that the observance of a boycott day, similar to one held in Nazi Germany shortly after Hitler came to power, will demonstrate the solidarity between Hungary and Germany. The anti-Jewish boycott day held in Germany several years ago was the signal for antiJewish riots throughout the country.

BAR ALSATIAN JEWS FROM THEI R HOMES Geneva (WNS)—Nazi authorities opened the frontier of Alsace to permit Alsatian refugees now in Switzerland to return to their homes and jobs. Jews, however, were not permitted to return. The number of refugees has been small because of reports here of typhoid, smallpox and infectious cattle diseases in the Nazi-occupied territory. Alsatian munitions factories are operating day and night shifts, but many other factories have shut down as a result of a shortage of raw materials. Unemployed Alsatians receive regular meals at Nazi army canteens in exchange for three days' work each week in labor gangs clearing up war damages. Those regularly employed in labor gangs receive one mark a day, which amounts to a little more than 40 cents. Y. W. H. A.

Foal Bight Urahams PURE... JERSEY MILK DAtKY (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4) more than this in all my time. I have been burned and put to the sword and had my throat cut. So this is just another pain. But I. the American, am worried: Can America endure through these perils while rats within and from without gnaw at its foundations? The feeble-minded were not unprepared to believe that there is something Jewish in the idea of defending America adequately. About a year ago they were hearing evil suspicions from the mouth of one whose tongue had been dedicated to speak only that which was truth and that which was clean and above reproach. Coughlin was imputing a Jewish connotation to events in the world. He was taking words from the mouth of Goebbels "and making them his own. One Sunday he faked a word picture of mankind marching to battlefields and being sacrificed behind Jewish commanders singing Jewish hymns. So it becomes easy for the feebler minds to believe whisperers who go about hunting empty heads into which to plant maggots of treason "This is all a Jewish plot—this preparedness for defense, this movement for conscription. The Jews are trying to drag you into war. You must oppose for the defense of America because it is something Jewish." It is made to order for Hitler, even if he didn't plan it all himI self. It is in accordance with his blue-print for treason: You start (whispering against Jews. Any I lie will do but it must always be a lie that connects Jews with authority in the government. A lot of people don't like Jews anyway and if you make it strong enough their dislike for the Jews will spill over on the government. This is the spade work that opens the way for tanks and mobilized divisions. Prejudice, hate and suspicion have paralyzed the defenders. Had I considered these letters worthy of an answer I would have said, Yes, I am a Jew and I am in favor of conscription even if it takes my sons. Your letters make it even more convincing that America must be impregnably defended! for on these letters I detect the finger-prints of Hitler already in America. (Incidentally, I am quite aware that had I come out against conscription people of some other groups would have written that I must be a Jew because I am against defending the country, that I am a Communist and all that, and that I should be made to go back where I came from.)
