RIOTS SWEEP PARIS;
GERMANY ARREST ANTIS
London (WNS)A series of anti-Jewish demonstrations in
Nazi-occupied Paris was touched off when 20 members of an
anti-Semitic organization paraded down the Champs Elysees
shouting. "Down with the Jews." Jewish shops were looted,
windows smashed and scores beaten before the police inter-
vened. Many of the demonstrators were arrested but released
shortly afterwards. Although the Nazi-controlled press has
railed at the Jews since the Nazi occupation, these marked the
first organized anti-Semitic demonstrations. While the Nazi
rioters marched through the streets shouting their anti-Jewish
slogans, a group of 70 Nazis O-

The State Federation of B'nai

being held that year in Tampa,
followed by the second in West
Palm Beach, the third in Jack-
sonville and the fourth to be
held Sunday in Hollywood,
j Formed for the purpose of mak-
ing the Lodges more unified in
action, operate with greater co-
operation and the increasing of

directors. Police arrested them
but later released all.
The newspaper LeMatin said
that while it was wholehearted-
ly in favor of fighting Jewish in-
fluence. "we do not think break-
| ing windows is a good way to
purification."
The
Paris suggested that the demon-
strations were the work of agent
provocateurs and added: "We
fight the Jewish ideology be-
cause we believe it is dangerous
to French economy. We will not
become associated with acts of
violence menacing goods and
persons."
Geneva (WNS)In a sweeping
round-up of German anti-Nazis,
Gestapo officials armed with
lists of prominent anti-Nazis and
intellectuals, visited internment
camps in unoccupied France and
arrested hundreds of anti-Nazis
who fled from Germany when
Hitler became dictator, it was
reported here.
Several hundred German an-
ti-Nazis were reported to have
been seized in the Gurs camp in
the Pyrenees and taken back to
Nazi jails. Many of the anti-
Nazis, it was said, fought with
j the loyalist army during the
i Spanish civil war as members of
the International Brigade.
Eye witnesses reported seeing
large groups of prisoners, many
of them still wearing their tat-
tered French army uniforms,
herded into trucks, under the
guard of heavily armed Germans
in civilian clothes, and trans-
ported to Nazi Germany.
Meanwhile, it was learned,
many Nazi extremists of many
nationalities, were interned by
the French at the start of the
war, have already been released
on orders from Germany.
London (WNS)A special law
will be enacted soon to regulate
"the status of the Jews" in un-
occupied France, according to a
German wireless report from
Vichy, provisional French capi-
tal.
The Nazi wireless reported: "It
is quite obvious that anti-Semitic
feelings since France's collapse
has been steadily growing. From
many towns in unoccupied
France there have come lately
reports of anti-Jewish disturb-
ances. The French government-
controlled radio stations launched
a campaign against certain pro-
fessions, particularly those of
doctors and medicine. being
swamped by Jews."
OUSTER OF JEWS
I TO BRITAIN
London (WNS)In a compre-
hensive review of the war. Prime
| Minister Winston Churchill told
ithe House of Commons that the
Dern.eres Neuvelles de NaziS| in driving ^ Jcw& qM q(
Germany, damaged their own
cause, possibly beyond repair.
"Since the Germans drove out
the Jews," the Prime Minister
said, "and lowered their tech-
nical standards, our science is
definitely ahead of theirs."
Since the advent of the Hitler
regime, Great Britain has pro-
vided a haven for German-Jew-
ish scientists and technicians and
according to neutral observers,
is now reaping the fruits of their
efforts. German-Jewish scient-
ists and technicians, for the mos.
part, have been exempted from
restrictions governing aliens.
Meanwhile, in an editorial, the
Evening Standard praised the
zeal among the young Jews of
Palestine. The editorial said: "In
Palestine there are thousands of
young Jews capable of fighting
in a modern, mechanized war,
possessing great industrial re-
sources and aware that their fu-
ture depends on our victory.
They are eager to fight although
we have not encouraged them."
ENROLLMENTS LESS
IN GERMAN SCHOOLS
London (WNS)According to
statistics obtained here, there has
been a sharp decline in the num-
ber of Jewish students attending
public and private schools in
Nazi Germany in 1939.
During 1938. 19.913 Jewish stu-
dents attended private and pub-
lic schools in Germany. In 1939
there were only 8.962 Jewish pu-
pils in German schools.
REFUGEES IN ITALY
ORDERED TO LEAVE
Geneva. (WNS)Jewish refu-
gees living in Turin, Florence.
Genoa and Trieste have been or-
dered by the police to leave their
homes and move elsewhere. The
refugees will move to villages
and cities under the supervision
of the police.
In all Italian industrial centers
Jews must register with the po-
lice and may not appear on the
streets between sundown and
sunrise.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHINEAS J. BIRON)
WELCOME B'NAI B'RITH
Delegates from all over the state will be in attendance this
Labor Day week-end at Hollywood when the Florida Federation
of B'nai B'rith Lodges convene for their fourth annual gather-
ing. The local committee in charge of the convention has
worked untiringly to make the gathering a memorable one
and to make the environment one wherein much should be
accomplished.
B'nai B'rith in the past few years has done much toward
revitalizing, reviving and reawakening Florida Jewry, making
it conscious of the work in the many fields that was to be
undertaken.
That B'nai B'rith has made tremendous strides can be seen
in the progress of its innumerable projects among which are
the Hillel Units at the University of Florida. Florida State Col-
lege for Women, and the University of Miami, the A. Z. A. activ-
ity, the Americanization work. Anti-Defamation accomplish-,
ments and civic endeavors of all types. Further attestment of |
its recognition is evidenced by the ever increasing member-
hip throughout the state.
To those attending we extend best wishes for a successful (
convention knowing there is much good still to be done and
hoping by their sincere efforts they will pave the way for these |
successes and prove that B'nai B'rith. as always, remains the
SERVICE ORGANIZATION.
REGISTERING ALIENS
The greatest registration of aliens in the history of the
United States was under way August 27. Between that date
and December 26, the 3.600.000 non-citizens over 15 years of ^
age in this country will be expected to bring answers to gues-
tionnaires to local post offices and file their fingerprints. The
forms will be printed in six languages, including Yiddish.
The fingerprints will be checked against files of the Jus-
tice Department's criminal division. Cases of illegally-arrived
aliens will be decided individually "on its merits," but assur-
ance has been given that no attempt will be made to deport,
any political or religious refugee in aanger of his life if returned j
to his country or origin.
We fully understand the motives that led the Government
to order this gigantic registration. It is not in the spirit of alien-
baiting but with mounting concern over the fifth column that this
check-up is being undertaken. Still, one wonders why. if fear
of a fifth column is the motive, the Government has not ordered
a check-up on native fifth columnists. We would wager that
the proportion of traitors among American citizens is at least
as great as among the aliens.
We have full confidence that the present administration
intends no drive against aliens as such. All officials concerned
including President Roosevelt, Attorney General Robert H. Jack-
son. Solicitor General Francis Biddle and Registration Director
Earl G. Harrison, have given convincing assurance that there
will be no "witch hunt." Our officials have shown an enlight-
ened appreciation of the value of aliens and their contribution
to this country.
But doubts are raised in our mind when such things hap-
pen as occurred in the Canal Zone recently. Eighty-one per-
sons employed in the Zone were discharged and arrested. Sec-
retary of War Henry L. Stimson called them "foreign agents."
Investigation disclosed that most of them were Jewish refu-
gee technicians who had taken up residence in the Zone at the
request of the same army authorities who later arrested them.
The War Department subsequently admitted that it had been
in error in calling them "foreign agents."
Still, there is no alternative but to urge full cooperation
with the registration. Now that it has been undertaken, aliens
must show their loyalty to the Government by following the
instructions.
MY TREE
1 have been sitting at this
typewriter for an hour thinking
of something to write about. I
am empty.
It seems that everything that
might be written about the world
and about Jews has been writ-
ten. What more is there to be
said? There can only be more
wringing of hands and to good
is that? More sighing and what I
the heir.' More of being mad at
everything and it's too hot for
that." More of shaking a fist al
Hitler and Nazis and fifth
umnists and that doesn't get you
anywhere either.
Once I laughed. I had a fellow
named Shabbesdeckel who was
my whipping boy for all self-crit-
icism. But I can't take it out on
him any more. People have
written me. What's become of '
Shabbesdeckel?
Poor old Shabbesdeckel! He s
worried enough, as everybody
else is. So I've just dropped him.
Once, in dull weeks. I could
take a pot shot at our clergy, j
But I must let them alone now. i
They are as bewildered as every- j
body else is nowadays. The old
prayers seem without avail. The I
old teachings about the righteous |
overcoming the evil doers seem ,
cancelled by Stukas and other ,
murderous mechanisms.
The oldest members of the con- ;
gregations are suffering dreadful j
doubts: Is the old teaching re-
ally true? What of the prayers
they have been sending up all
their days? Religion is suffer-
ing a blitzkreig together with a
lot of other decent things that !
stood so long in the world.
Once upon a time I could write
about anti-Semitism when there
was nothing else. One could take i
hold of an anti-Semite and beat
the stuffing out of him through
the length of a whole column. But j
I feel ashamed to complain of i
my special Jewish pain when I
read of Englishmen taking hourly j
bombs in their stride.
Then there was Hitler to write ,
about. One could hang him on a
column and lash him and leave '
him swinging all battered. But
this in time comes to trouble
on's self-respect. It is like in-
terminably beating a swine.
Once one could dream. He
thought he could see a consider-
able distance into the future and
detect bright gleams even on
dark days. If he was a Jew he
could renumber the way God did
with Pharaoh a! the Red Sea
or what happened to Human in
S'.iushan. In both instances help
came in the nick of time.
But now thore is no light at
allnothing but thickest dark-
ness all the way as far as Africa.
Nothing good to dream of. noth-
ing o: which to say. Well, this is
a good sign.
One could feel that no matter
what happened. Palestine would
always stand as a happy refuge.
I didn't have to be a Zionist to
see that Palestine was one good
place left anyway. This was
comfort. But now Mussolini is
1 bombing Haifa to get Palestine
ready as the way to empire for
him and Hitler. (My Zionist
. friends aren't saying much about
that: it is something too tragic
I even to think about.)
So what's tnere to write about.
except that which would only
' rub salt in wounds that hurt
'enough. Perhaps I should write
about my tree. Old and strong
it stands on my lawn. It is a
gum tree.
I sit under it in the cool of
' the evening and when a breeze
is blowing I get its whispering;
especially when I doze I can un-
'. derstand its whispers.
It is not a Jewish tree, as one
! might think who expects Jewish
] subjects to be discussed in a Jew-
ish paper. It comforted the Chris-
: tians who lived in my house be-
fore I did. The other day a negro
paused under it to get its shade
against the heat of the afternoon.
I Its leafy branches extend far ov-
er the sidewalk.
The negro stood under it some
, five minutes. He seemed grateful
that at least trees are generous
and make no discriminations.
My tree is. in fact, a universal

WAR ECHOES
A hurry call has come from the British Isles for a large
number of prints of Charlie Chaplin's film "The Dictator" .
Government leaders in the beleaguered islands feel that Chap-
lin's comedy about the mustached dictator will prove an ex-
cellent antidote against the nerve-strain of continuous air raids
. Jewish physicians in Naziland have been granted the priv-
ilege of working in war hospitals And so impressed are the
military authorities with their efficiency that they're urging Hit
ler to call off his anti-Jewish policy for the sake of his military
macine, a recently returned traveler tells us It's hard though.
to reconcile this with the rumor that Marshal Petain is rapidly
losing favor in Hitler's eyes because of his reluctance to inten-
sify the anti-Semitic drive by the new regime in France .
We're informed, too, that the French authorities have sent out a
call to the Jewish technical experts who fled Paris when the
Germans marched in ... It seems that French industry needs
Jewish brainpower, and has the good sense to admit it ... A
horoscope expert recently announced the astounding discov-
ery that the horoscopes of Adolf Hitler and our own Billy Rose
are exactly the same Which doesn't, of course, mean that
you should wish Billy any bod luckjust pray that the expert is
mistaken Andre Maurois, the great French man of letters,
is now in this country His name.'as you know, used to be
Herzog, and of course one of the first things the new aid to
France did was to confiscate all his property and the factories
belonging to his family .Herzog-Maurois is a member of the
French Acodemy, to which Marshal Petain also belongs .
There was a time when Petain submitted his manuscripts to
Maurois for counsel But if Maurois were to decide to re-
turn to France today he would run the risk of being clapped in
jail together with all the others who have been arrested on
charges that they loved England too much .
THIS AND THAT
The British are the most unpredictable people in the world.
. There really is no reason for the British Pavilion at the
World's Fair to be redistributing reprints of Malcolm MacDon
aid's speech on the restrictions on land sales to Jews in Pales-
tine The speech, delivered on March 6. 1940, created a
storm of anti-British feeling in many Jewish guarters at the
time ... To revive it today without rhyme or reason must have
been an idea hatched by a zealous Fifth Columnist The
Protestant Digest, which is doing yoeman work in combating
anti-Semitism, is encountering difficulties because it refuses to
kotow to some of the big organizations The American Feder-
ation for Polish Jews is going out on an independent relief cam-
paign to help Polish Jewry That is, unless the United Jewish
Appeal decides to include it among its beneficiaries ... A bang-
up job is being done guietly and without publicity by the HIAS,
which is helping the transfer of refugees, who in all the chaos
on the other side are rapidly becoming the forgotten men -
Have you heard about Father Edward Lodge Curran. who is the
head of the Catholic Truth Conference (the reputation of which
is not as savory as its name might lead one to expect), and who
has several times substituted for Father Coughlin on the radio
. Some time ago that gentleman was a member of the Board
of the National Conference of Christians and Jews But that
was a long time ago The significant statement on the per
secution of Jews made by Candidate Willkie in his acceptance
speech apparently hasn't affected anti-Semitic Joe McWilliams,
of New York, in his determination to seek a seat in Congress
under the Republican banner .
WITH THE ZIONISTS
Seeing the title "England Defies Blitz" on the marguee of a
newsreel theatre, a Zionist of our acguaintance wanted to know
whether this referred to the Palestine situation and whether ihe
Blitz mentioned was Sam Blitz of the U. P. A. Dr. Israel
Wechsler, who in addition to his medical fame is well-known
throughout this country as a Zionist leader, was the first Amen
can specialist reguested by the Trotzky household when the
, tragedy occrured there last week But he also came too late
... We hope that by the time this reaches your eyes the "issue"
about the editorship of The New Palestine has been settled and
that all will remain as it was before the new Zionist administra-
tion's decision to oust unceremoniously an old and tried end
experienced newspaperman. .
LITERARY DEPARTMENT
Our prophecies on Maurice Samuel's new book "The Great
Hatred." are being confirmed by none other than Thomas Mann,
who in a private letter recently wrote that "no better analysis
has ever been given of anti-Semitism as a phenomenon falling
outside the held of normal prejudices and antipathies and be-
longing to the realm of the demonological" Watch out for
Irmgard Litten's "Beyond Tears," which will be published next
month and will be the strongest indicament of Nazi cruelty yet
to appear in this country Don't miss "Three Faces West."
which deals with the epic of a group of refugee physicians who
render heroic service in a town of the dust-bowl area of the
United States Congratulations to Abraham Goldberg, the
Zionist speaker, Hebrew author and versatile editor, on the
occasion of the publication of his new book Goldberg's
"Our Time is Coming," brought out by the Hebrew Publishing
! Company, contains eighteen of Abe's most scintillating ad-

HIAS ISSUES
INFORMATION
The Hebrew Sheltering and
Immigrant Aid Society has is-
sued the following information
emanating from their legal office
in Washington, D. C:
We are informed by the De-
partment of State that, as of
August 14, 1940. the American
Legations \ind Consulates at
Riga (Latvia). Kaunas (Lithuan-
ia), and Tallinin (Esthonia) have
been closed. The Department of
State has now authorized the
American Consulate at Moscow
to issue visas, and accordingly,
all visa matters in Latvia. Lith-
uania and Esthonia. and all old
and newly acquired or occupied
Soviet territory will come within
Ihe jurisdiction of the American
Consulate at Moscow.
The American Consulates at
Marseille. Lyon and Nice are the
only American consulates func-
tioning for visa purposes in un-
occupied France. (The Depart-
ment of State is not certain, we
re informed, whether Nice is in
occupied territory or in the un-
occupied zone).
In occupied French territory,
the American Consulate at Bor-
deaux is functioning for visa
matters. We understand the Con-
sulate at Paris is functioning, out
not for visa matters.
Cable communication through
the State Department with the
American Consulate at Rotter-
dam is possible, and with the
American Consulate at Antwerp.
No mail communication is had
with Antwerp.
The Department of State has
not recognized the change in ter-
ritories. Accordingly, for quota
purposes, these people come un-
der their respective quotas, Lat-
via, Lithuania, etc., etc.

B'nai B'rith

Notes
By HAROLD TURK
From time to time, members of
B'nai B'rith who do not attend
meetings, or prospective mem-
bers will inquire. "What does
B'nai B'rith do?" This is not in-
tended as a comprehensive an-
swer to their question, but
should, in part, give them an
idea how extensive and import-
ant is the work B'nai B'rith
does.
Plans are definitely being
made for establishing a Hillel
Extension at the University of
Havana. There are now Founda-
tions or Extensions at 32 univer-
sities in the United States, and
20 more Extensions or Founda-
tions are being planned for this
year. These Foundations and
Extensions serve a vital need of
the Jewish boys and girls at the
many universities throughout the
country who are away from
home.
B'nai B'rith has, for many
years, been very active in the
field of Anti-Defamation thru-
out the country, and we have
been advised that the Supreme
Lodge is sending a director to
this locality who will set up an
office in Miami and who will be
in charge of anti-defamation
work in this part of the coun-
try. Many things have been
brought to our attention in Mi-
ami which need the attention
and handling of an experienced
man in anti-defamation work.
We have also been advised that
definite plans are being made to
form a B'nai B'rith Lodge in Ha-
vana, Cuba. A number of prob-
lems have come up in Cuba in
the last couple of years, especial-
ly with the immigration and ref-
ugee situation. It would, there-
fore, be an excellent idea if we
nad a Lodge in Havana, Cuba.
1 which would be organized and
equipped to a certain extent to
help and correct many undesir-
able situations which have arisen
I and which are bound to arise in
the future.
B'nai B'rith has also set up
committees in each of its Lodges
which will serve as legal aid to
aliens who must register under
the new Federal Alien Registra-
tion Act.
The foregoing activities are
only by way of casual mention,
but you will readily appreciate
the significance and importance
of these activities. They are vi-
tal problems not only to our peo-
ple but are closely related to na-
tional problems and affairs.
It is your duty to become a
member of B'nai B'rith. thereby
strengthening our fold and en-
abling us to carry on our work.
If you are a member, you should
attend meetings regularly, and,
by all means, attend our State
Convention which will be held
over Labor Day week-end, Sep-
tember 1 and 2. at the Hollywood
Beach Hotel. You will find com-
plete information about this Con-
vention on the front page of this
edition. Due to the efforts of
Brother Leo Chaikin. the Lodge
has arranged for a "Friendship
Room" wherein the brethren,
their wives, and their guests may
partake of liqu (or) ids.

At 8 p. m. on Sunday night, a
ritual and initiation program has
been arranged by the committee
of which Brother Abe Aronovitz
and Brother Lou Heiman are co-
chairmen. All new members and
members who were never ini-
tiated are asked to attend and
participate.

Last week was the first regular
night of league bowling at the
Recreation Alleys. Team No. 1,
captained by Sam Seitlin, won
three straight games from Team
No 2 captained by Marty Mil-
Stein, while Team No. 4 captained
by John Kronenfeld. won two
and lost one from Team No. 3.
captained by Lou Kraft.
High set was rolled by Bernie
Wagner at. 306 with Dr. L. H.
; Finn running a close second with
304. High game by three who
had 111 are Dr. L. H Finn. Ber-
nie Wagner, and John Kronen-
feld. Brother Elry Stone, our
vice president, is now a full
fledged bowler.
Come down Thursday night
and watch the teams bowl in
full uniforms supplied by the
Lodge. You are sure to enjoy
yourselves and after one visit
will become a regular visitor and
bowler. Bring along your wife
, and friends. All are welcome.

Remember that B'nai B'rith
I has an office located at 845 In-
graham Building, telephone No.
2-1388. If you want to make

tion or get any other information

jr. council neuus
by Nana Kuperberg
Council's governing board is
trying to highlight regular meet-
< ings with pointed business dis-
cussions, speakers and entertain-
iment. At the last meeting, held
Tuesday night at the Blackstone
Hotel, current problems were
brought forth. The matter of a
permanent meeting place was
the main topic. Edward Newman
described his efforts to obtain
such a meeting place where the
Council members may be sure of
finding bridge partners, ping
pong players, and people with
whom to sit and chat. Nathan
Zwitman and Sondel Hendel of-
fered their services to join Ed-
ward Newman in his search for
a home for Council.
The possibility of having oc-
casional meetings in town was
brought to the attention of the
body. Many Beach people agreed
that town meetings would not
be inconvenient and might serve
to bring in members from Miami
and surrounding vicinities. So,
all of you town people who are
in favor of this move, signify by
your attendance at our next reg-
ular meeting. Notice will be
given in advance, or information
may be received by calling Char-
lotte Dreyfus, at 5-2225, who will
take all names for her mailing
! list.
The business meeting of the
Council was adjourned, and
Chairman Phil Kuperberg intro-
duced Mr. Isaac Joffe, executive
'secretary of the Greater Miami
! Jewish Federation. Mr. Joffe
I described the work of the Fed-
> eration and brought forth the
: need for cooperation among
; Americans to help all mankind.
Mr. Joffe advocated the volun-
teering of Council members' ser-
vices to help Americanize and
integrate those refugees that have
come to Miami to find peace.
Council, in a body, thanked Mr.
. Joffe for his interesting talk.
May we thank our guests for
having attended, and extend our
sincere invitation to them to be-
come active members and work-
ers in the program of the Na-
tional Council of Jewish Juniors.

THE Y. M. H. A.
NOTES
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
HOME CAMP
One of the greatest spectacles
of its kind ever held in this
city took place last Thursday
evening, August 22 at the Y. M.
H. A. athletic field when the
Home Camp conducted its clos-
ing exercises. To borrow a
phrase of a famous statesman,
the Home Camp folks 'came,
saw and conquered." Conquered
the hearts, souls and minds of
every individual in the vicinity.
The program opened with the
blowing of assembly by little
Richard Schulman and then con-
tinued as follows: Flag salute,
America, drill by the campers.
Herb Cohen, master of ceremon-
ies. Dr. Beckman, Jewish play,
tap dance, Dr. Rand, Rabbi Sha-
piro, folk dance, Leon Lieber-
man. boxing exhibition, Rabbi
Kellner, Ballet, Mr. Grossman,
Frances Ginsberg, Essie Shaffer,
Mickey Lubel, Cinderella play,
presentation of gifts by Mrs.
Lieberman, Mrs. Joel Belov, li-
brarian, Mrs. Yantes, kindergart-
en. Mrs. Benjamin Levine,
Glee Club, counsellors. God
Bless America, taps.
One of the outstanding feat-
ures of the evening was the tap
and ballet dances in beautiful
costumes which were made by
the camp staff. In general the
program last Thursday was a re-
view of what the campers had
done during the sessions.
At this time we wish to thank
ihr following instructors and
registration office and notify the
authorities to that extent. Call
Maurice Grossman, 3-4012 for
further details.
Mr. Berman Goes to Town
Joe Berman bowling for the
Rangers, shattered all previous
high game scores for the Y. M.
H. A. when he toppled the pins
for a neat 150 score. The lead-
ing Supermen, captained by Al
Berkowitz. took the cellar-head-
success of this fine project. We i im2 Demons, managed by Jack
hope next summer to do even
better.
Yom Kippur Dance
At the last meeting of the
board of directors, Charles Blau
was appointed chairman of the
Post Yom Kippur dance, an an-
nual affair, which will be held
Sunday, October 13. Reserve this
date. More details later. The
Y. W. H. A. appointed Mrs. Essie
Schaeffer chairman.
Social Service
Maurice Grossman, our execu-
tive director, announces that he
is prepared to accept lists for
rooms, apartments, and board
from those persons who can fur-
nish such accommodations. Sim-
ply write a letter to Mr. Gross-
man stating particulars. There
is no charge for this service, just
Apte, and captained by Hal Lev-
inson, into camp in three straight
games. The last game, a heart-
breaker, was lost by only one
pin. The other games of the
night saw Sammy Seitlin bowl
a high 344 set for the night to
help the Blackies defeat the
Rangers two out of three games.
While the Silverstreaks, captain-
ed by Abe Silver, defeated the
Bombers of Abe Berkowitz, two
out of three games. Only three
weeks of play remain before the
tournament will be over. Sam
Tendrich continues to lead the
boys with a 103 average for 36
games played.

of these leaves. That's all I am.
In an autumn I shall wither and
blow away and join all the leaves
that have blown away and ming-
led with the earth.
If I thus realized my import-
ance the pain of the current mo-
ment wouldn't hurt me so
much. .So my tree tells me.)
But I say yesbut these hor-
rible, ruthless changes that are
going on in the world! They
make me almost wish that a wind
would come and blow me away
with the leaves so that I might
mingle with the earth.
In the whispering of my tree I
hear the reply: I'm a queer guy.
I accept humbly all the changes
that time and vicissitude cause
in myself, but I resent the world
changing. I get old and wrinkled
and gray and I am no longer the
gay fellow the girls admired. I
take all that, saying, well, that's
the way it goes.
But I can't tolerate the world
changing. I insist that the world
must remain as it was in my
youth and in the youth of my par-
ents and grandparents. If I
looked at the changing world as
I look at my graying head I
would take it all as philosophic-
ally. Well, so it goes. I must
change and the world must
change. Out of my graying head
comes something of wisdom and
peace adorns my wrinkling coun-
tenance. Perhaps by the travail
of change the world, too. will
come in time to wisdom and
peace. (This is what I get from
the whispering of the tree.)
Nevertheless. I hope for some
miraculous turn that will bring
everything back to the old ways
I tune in with the hopeful idea
of hearing that the British air
force has driven all the Nazis
back when- they came from
(Though I am horribly fearful it
may all be over fur the worst be-
fore this is printed.)
I tune in and got the bright
Schwanda polka. That's better.

I have seen its strong body bow
in the wind as old men do be-
fore God in the synagogue. It
gives me a great deal of comfort
in these troubled times, especial-
ly when I doze and understand
its whispering.
It tells me there may be a bet-
ter time in a hundred years. This
tree itself has stood on this spot
some hundreds of years and
knows that a hundred years are
only like spring, summer, aut-
umn and winterso quick.
"A hundred years!" I exclaim.
"I can't wait that long. I'll prob-
ably not be here in a hundred
years anyway. I just can't wait
that long for a better time."
My whispering tree replies
that my trouble is that I am too
presumptuous. I. like all other
people, exaggerate my import-
ance. I should realize that my
time on earth is but a fraction of
1 an instant in the pool of time. I
lam but an infinitesimal speck of
all the dust.

BIRON) WELCOME B'NAI B'RITH Delegates from all over the state will be in attendance this Labor Day week-end at Hollywood when the Florida Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges convene for their fourth annual gathering. The local committee in charge of the convention has worked untiringly to make the gathering a memorable one and to make the environment one wherein much should be accomplished. B'nai B'rith in the past few years has done much toward revitalizing, reviving and reawakening Florida Jewry, making it conscious of the work in the many fields that was to be undertaken. That B'nai B'rith has made tremendous strides can be seen in the progress of its innumerable projects among which are the Hillel Units at the University of Florida. Florida State College for Women, and the University of Miami, the A. Z. A. activity, the Americanization work. Anti-Defamation accomplish-, ments and civic endeavors of all types. Further attestment of | its recognition is evidenced by the ever increasing member%  hip throughout the state. To those attending we extend best wishes for a successful ( convention knowing there is much good still to be done and hoping by their sincere efforts they will pave the way for these | successes and prove that B'nai B'rith. as always, remains the SERVICE ORGANIZATION. REGISTERING ALIENS The greatest registration of aliens in the history of the United States was under way August 27. Between that date and December 26, the 3.600.000 non-citizens over 15 years of ^ age in this country will be expected to bring answers to guestionnaires to local post offices and file their fingerprints. The forms will be printed in six languages, including Yiddish. The fingerprints will be checked against files of the Justice Department's criminal division. Cases of illegally-arrived aliens will be decided individually "on its merits," but assurance has been given that no attempt will be made to deport, any political or religious refugee in aanger of his life if returned j to his country or origin. We fully understand the motives that led the Government to order this gigantic registration. It is not in the spirit of alienbaiting but with mounting concern over the fifth column that this check-up is being undertaken. Still, one wonders why. if fear of a fifth column is the motive, the Government has not ordered a check-up on native fifth columnists. We would wager that the proportion of traitors among American citizens is at least as great as among the aliens. We have full confidence that the present administration intends no drive against aliens as such. All officials concerned including President Roosevelt, Attorney General Robert H. Jackson. Solicitor General Francis Biddle and Registration Director Earl G. Harrison, have given convincing assurance that there will be no "witch hunt." Our officials have shown an enlightened appreciation of the value of aliens and their contribution to this country. But doubts are raised in our mind when such things happen as occurred in the Canal Zone recently. Eighty-one persons employed in the Zone were discharged and arrested. Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson called them "foreign agents." Investigation disclosed that most of them were Jewish refugee technicians who had taken up residence in the Zone at the request of the same army authorities who later arrested them. The War Department subsequently admitted that it had been in error in calling them "foreign agents." Still, there is no alternative but to urge full cooperation with the registration. Now that it has been undertaken, aliens must show their loyalty to the Government by following the instructions. MY TREE 1 have been sitting at this typewriter for an hour thinking of something to write about. I am empty. It seems that everything that might be written about the world and about Jews has been written. What more is there to be said? There can only be more wringing of hands and to good is that? More sighing and what I the heir.' More of being mad at everything and it's too hot for that." More of shaking a fist al Hitler and Nazis and fifth umnists and that doesn't get you anywhere either. Once I laughed. I had a fellow named Shabbesdeckel who was my whipping boy for all self-criticism. But I can't take it out on him any more. People have written me. What's become of Shabbesdeckel? Poor old Shabbesdeckel! He s worried enough, as everybody else is. So I've just dropped him. Once, in dull weeks. I could take a pot shot at our clergy, j But I must let them alone now. i They are as bewildered as everyj body else is nowadays. The old prayers seem without avail. The I old teachings about the righteous | overcoming the evil doers seem cancelled by Stukas and other murderous mechanisms. The oldest members of the con; gregations are suffering dreadful j doubts: Is the old teaching really true? What of the prayers they have been sending up all their days? Religion is suffering a blitzkreig together with a lot of other decent things that stood so long in the world. Once upon a time I could write about anti-Semitism when there was nothing else. One could take i hold of an anti-Semite and beat the stuffing out of him through the length of a whole column. But j I feel ashamed to complain of i my special Jewish pain when I read of Englishmen taking hourly j bombs in their stride. Then there was Hitler to write about. One could hang him on a column and lash him and leave him swinging all battered. But this in time comes to trouble on's self-respect. It is like interminably beating a swine. Once one could dream. He thought he could see a considerable distance into the future and detect bright gleams even on dark days. If he was a Jew he could renumber the way God did with Pharaoh a! the Red Sea or what happened to Human in S'.iushan. In both instances help came in the nick of time. But now thore is no light at all—nothing but thickest darkness all the way as far as Africa. Nothing good to dream of. nothing o: which to say. Well, this is a good sign. One could feel that no matter what happened. Palestine would always stand as a happy refuge. I didn't have to be a Zionist to see that Palestine was one good place left anyway. This was comfort. But now Mussolini is 1 bombing Haifa to get Palestine ready as the way to empire for him and Hitler. (My Zionist friends aren't saying much about that: it is something too tragic I even to think about.) So what's tnere to write about. except that which would only rub salt in wounds that hurt 'enough. Perhaps I should write about my tree. Old and strong it stands on my lawn. It is a gum tree. I sit under it in the cool of the evening and when a breeze is blowing I get its whispering; especially when I doze I can un'. derstand its whispers. It is not a Jewish tree, as one might think who expects Jewish ] subjects to be discussed in a Jewish paper. It comforted the Chris: tians who lived in my house before I did. The other day a negro paused under it to get its shade against the heat of the afternoon. I Its leafy branches extend far over the sidewalk. The negro stood under it some five minutes. He seemed grateful that at least trees are generous and make no discriminations. My tree is. in fact, a universal (CONTINUED ON PAGE <) WAR ECHOES A hurry call has come from the British Isles for a large number of prints of Charlie Chaplin's film "The Dictator" Government leaders in the beleaguered islands feel that Chaplin's comedy about the mustached dictator will prove an excellent antidote against the nerve-strain of continuous air raids Jewish physicians in Naziland have been granted the privilege of working in war hospitals And so impressed are the military authorities with their efficiency that they're urging Hit ler to call off his anti-Jewish policy for the sake of his military macine, a recently returned traveler tells us It's hard though. to reconcile this with the rumor that Marshal Petain is rapidly losing favor in Hitler's eyes because of his reluctance to intensify the anti-Semitic drive by the new regime in France We're informed, too, that the French authorities have sent out a call to the Jewish technical experts who fled Paris when the Germans marched in ... It seems that French industry needs Jewish brainpower, and has the good sense to admit it ... A horoscope expert recently announced the astounding discovery that the horoscopes of Adolf Hitler and our own Billy Rose are exactly the same Which doesn't, of course, mean that you should wish Billy any bod luck—just pray that the expert is mistaken Andre Maurois, the great French man of letters, is now in this country His name.'as you know, used to be Herzog, and of course one of the first things the new aid to France did was to confiscate all his property and the factories belonging to his family .Herzog-Maurois is a member of the French Acodemy, to which Marshal Petain also belongs There was a time when Petain submitted his manuscripts to Maurois for counsel But if Maurois were to decide to return to France today he would run the risk of being clapped in jail together with all the others who have been arrested on charges that they loved England too much THIS AND THAT The British are the most unpredictable people in the world. There really is no reason for the British Pavilion at the World's Fair to be redistributing reprints of Malcolm MacDon aid's speech on the restrictions on land sales to Jews in Palestine The speech, delivered on March 6. 1940, created a storm of anti-British feeling in many Jewish guarters at the time ... To revive it today without rhyme or reason must have been an idea hatched by a zealous Fifth Columnist The Protestant Digest, which is doing yoeman work in combating anti-Semitism, is encountering difficulties because it refuses to kotow to some of the big organizations The American Federation for Polish Jews is going out on an independent relief campaign to help Polish Jewry That is, unless the United Jewish Appeal decides to include it among its beneficiaries ... A bangup job is being done guietly and without publicity by the HIAS, which is helping the transfer of refugees, who in all the chaos on the other side are rapidly becoming the forgotten men Have you heard about Father Edward Lodge Curran. who is the head of the Catholic Truth Conference (the reputation of which is not as savory as its name might lead one to expect), and who has several times substituted for Father Coughlin on the radio Some time ago that gentleman was a member of the Board of the National Conference of Christians and Jews But that was a long time ago The significant statement on the per secution of Jews made by Candidate Willkie in his acceptance speech apparently hasn't affected anti-Semitic Joe McWilliams, of New York, in his determination to seek a seat in Congress under the Republican banner WITH THE ZIONISTS Seeing the title "England Defies Blitz" on the marguee of a newsreel theatre, a Zionist of our acguaintance wanted to know whether this referred to the Palestine situation and whether ihe Blitz mentioned was Sam Blitz of the U. P. A. Dr. Israel Wechsler, who in addition to his medical fame is well-known throughout this country as a Zionist leader, was the first Amen can specialist reguested by the Trotzky household when the tragedy occrured there last week But he also came too late ... We hope that by the time this reaches your eyes the "issue" about the editorship of The New Palestine has been settled and that all will remain as it was before the new Zionist administration's decision to oust unceremoniously an old and tried end experienced newspaperman. LITERARY DEPARTMENT Our prophecies on Maurice Samuel's new book "The Great Hatred." are being confirmed by none other than Thomas Mann, who in a private letter recently wrote that "no better analysis has ever been given of anti-Semitism as a phenomenon falling outside the held of normal prejudices and antipathies and belonging to the realm of the demonological" Watch out for Irmgard Litten's "Beyond Tears," which will be published next month and will be the strongest indicament of Nazi cruelty yet to appear in this country Don't miss "Three Faces West." which deals with the epic of a group of refugee physicians who render heroic service in a town of the dust-bowl area of the United States Congratulations to Abraham Goldberg, the Zionist speaker, Hebrew author and versatile editor, on the occasion of the publication of his new book Goldberg's "Our Time is Coming," brought out by the Hebrew Publishing Company, contains eighteen of Abe's most scintillating addresses in Yiddish

PAGE SIX *Jenisti fhridiann FRIDAY AUGUST 30. 1940 B'nai B'rith siiP Notes By HAROLD TURK From time to time, members of B'nai B'rith who do not attend meetings, or prospective members will inquire. "What does B'nai B'rith do?" This is not intended as a comprehensive answer to their question, but should, in part, give them an idea how extensive and important is the work B'nai B'rith does. Plans are definitely being made for establishing a Hillel Extension at the University of Havana. There are now Foundations or Extensions at 32 universities in the United States, and 20 more Extensions or Foundations are being planned for this year. These Foundations and Extensions serve a vital need of the Jewish boys and girls at the many universities throughout the country who are away from home. B'nai B'rith has, for many years, been very active in the field of Anti-Defamation thruout the country, and we have been advised that the Supreme Lodge is sending a director to this locality who will set up an office in Miami and who will be in charge of anti-defamation work in this part of the country. Many things have been brought to our attention in Miami which need the attention and handling of an experienced man in anti-defamation work. We have also been advised that definite plans are being made to form a B'nai B'rith Lodge in Havana, Cuba. A number of problems have come up in Cuba in the last couple of years, especially with the immigration and refugee situation. It would, therefore, be an excellent idea if we nad a Lodge in Havana, Cuba. 1 which would be organized and equipped to a certain extent to help and correct many undesirable situations which have arisen I and which are bound to arise in the future. B'nai B'rith has also set up committees in each of its Lodges which will serve as legal aid to aliens who must register under the new Federal Alien Registration Act. The foregoing activities are only by way of casual mention, but you will readily appreciate the significance and importance of these activities. They are vital problems not only to our people but are closely related to national problems and affairs. It is your duty to become a member of B'nai B'rith. thereby strengthening our fold and enabling us to carry on our work. If you are a member, you should attend meetings regularly, and, by all means, attend our State Convention which will be held over Labor Day week-end, September 1 and 2. at the Hollywood Beach Hotel. You will find complete information about this Convention on the front page of this edition.

COUNCIL neuus by Nana Kuperberg Council's governing board is trying to highlight regular meet< ings with pointed business discussions, speakers and entertainiment. At the last meeting, held Tuesday night at the Blackstone Hotel, current problems were brought forth. The matter of a permanent meeting place was the main topic. Edward Newman described his efforts to obtain such a meeting place where the Council members may be sure of finding bridge partners, ping pong players, and people with whom to sit and chat. Nathan Zwitman and Sondel Hendel offered their services to join Edward Newman in his search for a home for Council. The possibility of having occasional meetings in town was brought to the attention of the body. Many Beach people agreed that town meetings would not be inconvenient and might serve to bring in members from Miami and surrounding vicinities. So, all of you town people who are in favor of this move, signify by your attendance at our next regular meeting. Notice will be given in advance, or information may be received by calling Charlotte Dreyfus, at 5-2225, who will take all names for her mailing list. The business meeting of the Council was adjourned, and Chairman Phil Kuperberg introduced Mr. Isaac Joffe, executive 'secretary of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. Mr. Joffe I described the work of the Fed> eration and brought forth the : need for cooperation among ; Americans to help all mankind. Mr. Joffe advocated the volunteering of Council members' services to help Americanize and integrate those refugees that have come to Miami to find peace. Council, in a body, thanked Mr. Joffe for his interesting talk.

RIOTS SWEEP PARIS; GERMANY ARREST ANTIS London (WNS)—A series of anti-Jewish demonstrations in Nazi-occupied Paris was touched off when 20 members of an anti-Semitic organization paraded down the Champs Elysees shouting. "Down with the Jews." Jewish shops were looted, windows smashed and scores beaten before the police intervened. Many of the demonstrators were arrested but released shortly afterwards. Although the Nazi-controlled press has railed at the Jews since the Nazi occupation, these marked the first organized anti-Semitic demonstrations. While the Nazi rioters marched through the streets shouting their anti-Jewish slogans, a group of 70 Nazis Oforced its way into the headbusiness session in the afternoon I A.

The State Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges was organized in |1937 with the first convention being held that year in Tampa, followed by the second in West Palm Beach, the third in Jacksonville and the fourth to be held Sunday in Hollywood, j Formed for the purpose of making the Lodges more unified in action, operate with greater cooperation and the increasing of B'nai B'rith activity, the State Federation has aided greatly towards the tremendous strides the organization has made. Past presidents of the State Federation include Judge Hy Roth of Orlando, and Dr. Frank Coret of Miami. quarters of a youth organization and demanded the names of the directors. Police arrested them but later released all. The newspaper LeMatin said that while it was wholeheartedly in favor of fighting Jewish in%  fluence. "we do not think break| ing windows is a good way to purification." The Paris suggested that the demonstrations were the work of agent provocateurs and added: "We fight the Jewish ideology because we believe it is dangerous to French economy. We will not become associated with acts of violence menacing goods and persons." Geneva (WNS)—In a sweeping round-up of German anti-Nazis, Gestapo officials armed with lists of prominent anti-Nazis and intellectuals, visited internment camps in unoccupied France and arrested hundreds of anti-Nazis who fled from Germany when Hitler became dictator, it was reported here. Several hundred German anti-Nazis were reported to have been seized in the Gurs camp in the Pyrenees and taken back to Nazi jails. Many of the antiNazis, it was said, fought with j the loyalist army during the i Spanish civil war as members of the International Brigade. Eye witnesses reported seeing large groups of prisoners, many of them still wearing their tattered French army uniforms, herded into trucks, under the guard of heavily armed Germans in civilian clothes, and transported to Nazi Germany. Meanwhile, it was learned, many Nazi extremists of many nationalities, were interned by the French at the start of the war, have already been released on orders from Germany. London (WNS)—A special law will be enacted soon to regulate "the status of the Jews" in unoccupied France, according to a German wireless report from Vichy, provisional French capital. The Nazi wireless reported: "It is quite obvious that anti-Semitic feelings since France's collapse has been steadily growing. From many towns in unoccupied France there have come lately reports of anti-Jewish disturbances. The French governmentcontrolled radio stations launched a campaign against certain professions, particularly those of doctors and medicine. being swamped by Jews." OUSTER OF JEWS I TO BRITAIN London (WNS)—In a comprehensive review of the war. Prime | Minister Winston Churchill told ithe House of Commons that the Dern.eres Neuvelles de NaziS| in driving ^ Jcw& QM Q( Germany, damaged their own cause, possibly beyond repair. "Since the Germans drove out the Jews," the Prime Minister said, "and lowered their technical standards, our science is definitely ahead of theirs." Since the advent of the Hitler regime, Great Britain has provided a haven for German-Jewish scientists and technicians and according to neutral observers, is now reaping the fruits of their efforts. German-Jewish scientists and technicians, for the mos. part, have been exempted from restrictions governing aliens. Meanwhile, in an editorial, the Evening Standard praised the zeal among the young Jews of Palestine. The editorial said: "In Palestine there are thousands of young Jews capable of fighting in a modern, mechanized war, possessing great industrial resources and aware that their future depends on our victory.

Philadelphia, not far from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell) a gift of B'nai B'rith to the people of the United States on the centennial of American independence in 1876. the leaves that grew on it in all the hundred years. I am like one of these leaves. That's all I am. In an autumn I shall wither and blow away and join all the leaves that have blown away and mingled with the earth. If I thus realized my importance the pain of the current moment wouldn't hurt me so much. .So my tree tells me.) But I say yes—but these horrible, ruthless changes that are going on in the world! They make me almost wish that a wind would come and blow me away with the leaves so that I might mingle with the earth. In the whispering of my tree I hear the reply: I'm a queer guy. I accept humbly all the changes that time and vicissitude cause in myself, but I resent the world changing. I get old and wrinkled and gray and I am no longer the gay fellow the girls admired. I take all that, saying, well, that's the way it goes. But I can't tolerate the world changing. I insist that the world must remain as it was in my youth and in the youth of my parents and grandparents. If I looked at the changing world as I look at my graying head I would take it all as philosophically. Well, so it goes. I must change and the world must change. Out of my graying head comes something of wisdom and peace adorns my wrinkling countenance. Perhaps by the travail of change the world, too. will come in time to wisdom and peace. (This is what I get from the whispering of the tree.) Nevertheless. I hope for some miraculous turn that will bring everything back to the old ways I tune in with the hopeful idea of hearing that the British air force has driven all the Nazis back whenthey came from (Though I am horribly fearful it may all be over fur the worst before this is printed.)

It gives me a great deal of comfort in these troubled times, especially when I doze and understand its whispering. It tells me there may be a better time in a hundred years. This tree itself has stood on this spot some hundreds of years and knows that a hundred years are only like spring, summer, autumn and winter—so quick. "A hundred years!" I exclaim. "I can't wait that long. I'll probably not be here in a hundred years anyway. I just can't wait that long for a better time." My whispering tree replies that my trouble is that I am too presumptuous. I. like all other people, exaggerate my importance. I should realize that my time on earth is but a fraction of 1 an instant in the pool of time. I lam but an infinitesimal speck of all the dust.
