JEWISH VETERANS ASK
BAN ON COMMUNISM
Boston (RNS)Resolutions de-
nouncing Communism. Nazism
and Fascism, and urging that the
Communist Party be outlawed
in this country, were passed at
the 45th annual encampment of
the J' wish War Veterans of the
United Slates.
Pre* nted by Samuel A. Riv-
kind ol Boston, chairman of the
resolutions committee, the reso-
lution called all forms of totali-
tarianism '"instruments of slav-
ery and avowed < nemics of de-
mo: racy." The resolution pledged
"fullest support of all the J. W.
V.'s resources for the protection
and preservation of the demo-
cratic principles of America."
Another resolution called for
the specific outlawing of the
Communist Party by state and
federal enactment. The resolu-
tion urged that the Communist
Party be removed from the bal-
lot because "it is an alien organ-
ization which admittedly func-
tions by directions and receives
orders from Moscow. Russia, and
has for its aims the overthrow-
ing of our democratic form of
government."

FORMER HADASSAH
PRESIDENT IS DEAD
New York (WNS)Funeral
services were held at the West
End Chapel for Miss Alice L.
Seligsberg, prominent Jewish
welfare worker and former na-
tional president of Hadassah, who
jiied at her home after a long
illness. She was 67 years old.
Hadassah, the women's Zion-
ist Organization of America, an-
nounced that it would honor her
memory with a grant of $10,000
to be used for a war emergency
welfare project to be carried on
in her name.
Miss Seligsberg, who led the
American Zionist Medical Unit
in Palestine in 1918 and helped
found Junior Hadassah in 1920,
became interested in Zionism
through her friendship with Miss
Henrietta Szold.
New York (WNS)Nazi Ger-
many and its Axis partner. Fas-
cist Italy, are using anti-Semi-
tism to stir up the Arabs in the
Middle East against Great Brit-
ain, Ralph W. Barnes writes in
a cabled dispatch to the New
York Herald Tribune from Cairo.
"As the war clouds thickened
I in the spring of 1939," Mr. Barnes
wrote, "propaganda from Berlin
was intensified. British 'atroci-
' ties' in Palestine were painted
in lurid colors in regular radio
broadcasts in Arabic from the
German capital. Here in the
Arab world was a field in which
the Germans could play anti-
Jewish theme with effect."
"As for paid agents from the
Axis camp." the correspondent
isaid, "there are probably many
of them engaged in spreading
unrest among the Arabs. There
are various suggestions as to the
identity of the Arab who may
have been picked by' the Ger-
mans to lead the fifth column."
The writer held that the Nazis
would concentrate their efforts
"on bringing into line Haj Amin
Effendi Al Hussein, the exiled
mufti of Jerusalem, who directed
a three-year Arab revolt in Pal-
estine."
"Views are widely current,"
he said, "that at least some Ger-
man and Italian money was in-
volved in the revolt in Palestine.
It is believed that this money
'was contributed to Arab clubs
and other organizations. There
I is no definite confirmation of
persistent reports that the mufti
or one of his principal lieuten-
ants was personally in direct
contact with the Germans dur-
ing the period of the Palestine
uprising."
N( w York (WNS)In "earnest
support" of President Roosevelt's
call to Americans to pray for
Sunday. September 8, the
co-chairman of the National Con-
ference of Christians and Jews
extended a call to local units of
the organization in 2.00'j com-
munities to join in obsorvin 'In
day of prayer. Prof. Arthur H.
Compton of Chicago University,
iProf. Carlton J. H. Hayes of Co-
; lumbia University and Roger W.
: Straus of New York are the
.heads of this association of lay-
men and clergy of all American
| faiths.
In making the announcement,
! Dr. Everett R. Clinchy, national
director, emphasized the need of
making America a land of peace.
as well as achieving world peace.
He said that constituent groups
throughout the country will be
urged to pray for peaceful rela-
tions among members of all
faiths, races and economic groups
in the nation as well as for in-
ternational peace based on broth-
erhood, justice and liberty.
"Every American without the
; fold of organized religion as well
\ as many Christian and Jewish
churchmen, needs to pray for
j guidance as to what course the
United States should take to
maintain peace and prevent des-
potism," he added.
New York (WNS)L. M. Birk-
head, national director of the
Fnonds of Democracy, Inc.. made
public a letter from John Stein-
beck, the noted American novel-
ist, in which the author of "The
Grapes of Wrath" and "Of Mice
and Men," vigorously assailed
a Nazi-Fascist propaganda cam-
paign which is attempting to dis-
credit his works by labeling them
as "Jewish propaganda and an-
ti-Christian novels."
Mr. Steinbeck's statement was
made in a letter to Mr. Birkhead
who recently brought the hate-
campaign to Mr. Steinbeck's at-
tention.
Newest target of an attack in
the controlled Axis press, Mr.
Steinbeck ridiculed the current
racial theories of the Axis part-
ners and at the same time ex-
pressed concern for "a time when
one must know a man's race be-
fore his work can be approved
or disapproved."
"It happens." Mr. Steinbeck
stated, "that I am not Jewish
and have no Jewish bloodbut
it only happens that way. I find
that 1 do not experience any
pride that it is so."

NORWAY ORDERED TO
SEIZE JEWISH WEALTH
Geneva (WNS)The Nazi gov-
ernment has ordered Norway to
confiscate 80*^; of the wealth of
its Jewish population before the
end of the year, it was learned
here. The confiscated money, it
was understood, would be paid
to Germany as part of the 200.-
000.000 Norwegian kronen war
debt which has been assessed by
Germany.
The order will meet with eager
compliance by the Major Quis-
ling regime, which betrayed Nor-
way to Hitler.
NAZIS TELL BRITISH
JEWS STARTED WAR
London (WNS)While low-
diving Nazi bombers renewed
their attacks on London, the
Nazi radio went on the air to
tell Britons that the Jews are
to blame for the present destruc-
tion and death. The Nazi an-
nouncer referred to Jewish refu-
gees from Germany and other
Nazi territories as "war mong-
ers" and warned the refugees of
their future fate.
PUNS ANNOUNCED
FOB JEWISH ARMY
London (WNS)Plans for the
formation of a world-wide Jew-
ish army of at least 100,000 men
to fight with the British troops
against Nazi Germany were an-
nounced here by A. Abrahams,
head of the political department
of the New Zionist Organization.
The first 100.000 men, Mr.
Abrahams declared at a press
conference, would quickly be
mustered by recruiting in all
parts of the world. He said.
! however, that most of the re-
cruiting would be done in the
United States.
Mr. Abrahams said that the
proposed Jewish army would be
equipped by the British govern-
ment, although an effort will be
made to have Jews provide fin-
ancial support for themselves.
He mentioned also the possibil-
ity of a Jewish branch of the
Royal Air Force, which would.
I he said, attract Jewish pilots and
I wireless operators in the Unit-
ed States.
Individual members of Parlia-
ment and the Cabinet have giv-
| en the plan their support accord-
ing to Mr. Abrahams. The Brit
ish government had raised cer-
tain objections but these could
be overcome, Revisionist spokes-
men said.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHINEAS J. BIRON)
QUESTIONS
UTOPIA
A thought occurs to us, which at this time becomes a paral-
lel to the tragedy wherein Jabotinsky had to die to become ap-
preciatedhad to pass from this earth before those that dis-
agreed with him would acknowledge his sincerityhad to
sacrifice his life to obtain the admittance from those about him
of his value to his people and of the good that might have been
gained, for the benefit of all, had they laid aside jealousies and
personal animosities.
In this very community and all over the world do these
same parallels occur. How pitiful that man cannot appreciate
the efforts of his fellow man striving for the betterment of htis
people and all mankind. When will they realize their duty to
pitch in and aid him and not to place obstacles in his path?
When will humanity awaken to their wrongdoings? When will
a public servant, the individual that sacrifices health, wealth
and family life to work for the communityto give his all, be
given that recognition that he deserves and is entitled toor
first must he die.
The period of Shloshim has just passed after his sudden
death and it is now that people begin properly to evaluate
Vladimir Jabotinsky.
Jabotinsky was the stormy petrel of Zionism and lived the
last five years of his life as an exile horn the organization which
he had helped to nurturethe World Zionist Organization. Yet
there was not one among the official Zionist leaders who did not
pay unstinting tribute to him. Even laborites, who had engaged
in bloody clashes at times with Jabotinsky's followers in Pales-
tine, were moved to praise.
There was more than one tragedy and paradox in Jabot-
insky's life. Here was a man who helped to found the Zionist
Organization, yet died outside it. He gave his life to Palestine,
yet died in exile from his homeland. He was the protagonist of
a doctrine of militarism, yet as a person was completely un-
militant; his friends knew him as mild-mannered and gentle.
His ideal was unity in Jewish life, yet he served as a cause of
factionalism.
One thing was revealed in the Zionist statements of tribute to
Jabotinskythe points of difference between official Zionism
and Revisionism are essentially minor. It is to be hoped that
this realization will speed a rapprochment between the World
Zionist Organization and the New Zionist Organization. Such
a development would be the most fitting memorial to a man of
whom it can be truly saidhe gave his life for Zionism.

CONVENTION NOTES
When we arrived at the Hol-
lywood Beach Hotel Sunday
morning and entered the main
lobby, we suddenly felt as if we
wire on Broadway and 42nd St.
Everyone was excited and greet-
ing everybody else and to make
things more thrilling, Brother
Jimmie Leonard was popping up
here and there taking flashlight
pictures .. I believe he even
mugged me.
It was indeed a very inspiring
address that Mayor Alexander
Orr made at the opening of the
first day's business session. Al-
though the content of the May-
or's address was very philoso-
phical, it was very timely and
practical and the address
made by the Hon. Josiah Mors>-
at the conclusion of the banquet
on Monday night was an unus-
ual treatise, and a treat to those
present. Professor Morse, who
is head of the department of
sociology and philosophy at the
University of South Carolina, de-
livered the type of address that
inspires the mind and soul of
men to great heights and accom-
plishments. No doubt many of
you will accuse Professor Morse
of being impractical but that is
because we nave come to meas-
ure everything that transpires
by material standards we
must admit that in these dark,
trying times that philosopnic.il
words of wisdom are elevating,
and by inspiring the mind, can in
turn empower the body to do
what otherwise would be im-
possible.
There were no dull moments
due to the extraordinary manner
in which Brother Al Pallo' and
Jennie Rotfort, co-chairmen of
the convention, together with
their committee, handled the
convention. A complete program
was prepared for both the men
and the women and what is more
the program was carried out.
Those of the delegates, their
wives, guests and visitor.? who
came from out of town were af-
forded during their stay, a splen-
did opportunity to visit in and
about Hollywood and the Great-
er Miami area and were able to
take in many of our attractive
sights.
Getting back to the business
sessions, I might state that they
encompassed many moods .
there was plenty of humor, sub-
tlety, seriousness, and excite-
ment and no doubt the out-
| standing feature of the conven-
tion was the splendid manner in
i which Brother Barney J. Cohen
: conducted and officiated over
t the business meeting He was
| called upon many times to ex-
i ercise exceptional ability, wit
[and strategy and succeeded each
time His presence of mind,
patience and charm was recog-
i nized and commented upon very
i favorably by everyone who ob-
served him Brother Cohen is
la leader and will undoubtedly
I move up into the National scope
of B'nai B'rith and I believe be-
fore many years will be our Na-
tional President.
At this time we should give
| thanks to all of the out-going of-
ficers of the State Federation and
Tallahassee

The wedding of Miss Evelyn
Carol Blate of Atlanta, to Mich-
ael Alterman of Atlanta, son of
Mrs. N. Alterman of New York,
took place Sunday, September 1
at noon at the Temple Israel
Synagogue with Rabbi Max Eich-
horn officiating. The bride was
given in marriage by her broth-
er Victor Blate of Winter Haven
and attended by her sister. Miss
Sara Blate as maid of honor.
Misses Marilyn and Betty Ann
Fleet of Live Oak, nieces of the
bride, were the flower girl and
train bearer respectively. David
Alterman of Atlanta, was his
brother's best man, and ushers
were Harold Mendelson, Irving

of Mrs. William A. Fleet and
Miss Sarah Blate of Tallahassee
and of Herbert Blate of Miami.
She has resided in Atlanta for
the past two years. Mr. Alter-
man is associated with the Wil-

of untiring efforts and work in .;__
behalf of B'nai B'rith. He has Mlsses Rosahc Rosner, Pearl
psalm of thanks: Thank goodness
for the union that does this for
me on Saturday.
Mr. Segal, alas, doesn't think
of the religious connotations as-
sociated with Saturday. He ex-
ults in the day only as an occas-
ion on which he can provide his
mind with several hours more pf
sleep.
He awakens again about 8 and
lies there in a semi-coma through
which the singing of the birds in
the nearby trees penetrates
pleasantly. So until 9 when Mr.
Segal arises from bed, performs
his ablutions, eats breakfast,
reads the morning paper .
What new terrors has blitzkreig
brought overnight?"
He exults in his idleness .
"Nothing for me to do until
Monday! Nothing to do but to
loaf and to sit in the sunlight, to
read, to go calling on Ellen."

Fleet, Irene Gross and Rhoda
I regret to report that on no
Saturday so far has he thought Come on! Let's go.)
of the religious duties that have
to do with the synagogue. He
has gone driving to look at the
country in its summer garb; he
has gone out to the open air
gymnasium to which he belongs
and there given his almost nude
body to the sunlight; he has
called on Ellen and tickled her
under the chin to make her
laugh. Mr. Segal has, indeed,
found a variety of things to do
except go to the synagogue on
the Sabbath.
(He has. in fact, been doing
with the Sabbath of Saturday as
most other people do with the
Sabbath of Sunday.)
I should, perhaps, admonish
him about it: "Segal, you should
be ashamed of yourself." But
the fellow would probably ra-
tionalize. He would tell me that
he feels God's presence in the
country when he goes driving on
a lovely day, that he is close to
godliness under the benign sun
at the gymnasium, that he is
conscious of divinity when Ellen
laughs.
These sound like trick an-
swers.
Have I been wrong, then, in
believing that the five-day week
would release the souls of men
for their religious duties on the
Sabbath? Or is there something
the matter with Segal.
I leave the whole thing to the
readers.
(Yet I do not despair of Mr.
Segal. Some Saturday morning
I shall say to him, Segal, it's
time to get up and get ready for
the synagogue. I've always said
that the five-day week will be
beneficial to religious life and
I've got to prove it's so. He will
probably want to sleep late, but
I shall command him sharply.

Counselorship at Florida State

Florida, as part of a major ex-
pansion in the scope of the Hillel
movement providing for the cre-
ation of 12 new units at as many
universities was announced this
week at B'nai B'rith headquart-
ers here by Henry Monsky. pres-
ident of B'nai B'rith and chair-
man of its National Hillel Com-
mission.
At the same time, Mr. Monsky
announced that Rabbi Max Eich-
; orn. spiritual leader of Tallahas-
see's Temple Israel and director
of th' Hillel Foundation at the
rsity of Florida. Ga
ville, would direct the Hillel
Counselorship at Florida Stati
The new Hillel Counselorship
which will provide a program of
cultural, religious and social wel-
fare for the 50 Jewish students at
Florida State, brings to 43 the
number of Hillel Foundations
and Counselorships maintained
by B'nai B'rith on as many cam-
puses for Jewish college men
and women. With 11 others to
be established shortly. 30.000
Jewish students will be served
by Hillel units.
The new Florida unit is classed
as a Counselorship. which dif-
fers from a Hillel Foundation on-
ly in that Counselorship is
staffed by a director serving
part-time or as a volunteer. Its
budget, however, comes from
B'nai B'rith sources, in the case
of Florida State, from B'nai
B'rith District 5.
ncss and above all by a deep
sense of reverence for true his-
torical facts.
Of great value to the course
has been the B'nai B'rith shell
at the University Library, found-
ed by the local Sholem Chapter
of B'nai B'rith. For three con-
secutive years the local district
has contributed SI00. Each year
the provision of select books to
be placed on the shelf. The fac-
ulty has commended highly this
contribution to the library.
Rabbi Shapiro has been asked
to present an added course on
the subject. "Hebraic as a Living
Language." which may be in-
cluded in the curriculum the
first semester of the year.

D. C—Establishment of a B'nai B'rith Hillel Counselorship at Florida State College for Women. Tallahassee Florida, as part of a major expansion in the scope of the Hillel movement providing for the creation of 12 new units at as many universities was announced this week at B'nai B'rith headquarters here by Henry Monsky. president of B'nai B'rith and chairman of its National Hillel Commission. At the same time, Mr. Monsky announced that Rabbi Max Eich; orn. spiritual leader of Tallahassee's Temple Israel and director of th' Hillel Foundation at the rsity of Florida. Ga ville, would direct the Hillel Counselorship at Florida Stati The new Hillel Counselorship which will provide a program of cultural, religious and social welfare for the 50 Jewish students at Florida State, brings to 43 the number of Hillel Foundations and Counselorships maintained by B'nai B'rith on as many campuses for Jewish college men and women. With 11 others to be established shortly. 30.000 Jewish students will be served by Hillel units. The new Florida unit is classed as a Counselorship. which differs from a Hillel Foundation only in that Counselorship is staffed by a director serving part-time or as a volunteer. Its budget, however, comes from B'nai B'rith sources, in the case of Florida State, from B'nai B'rith District 5. ncss and above all by a deep sense of reverence for true historical facts. Of great value to the course has been the B'nai B'rith shell at the University Library, founded by the local Sholem Chapter of B'nai B'rith. For three consecutive years the local district has contributed SI00. Each year the provision of select books to be placed on the shelf. The faculty has commended highly this contribution to the library. Rabbi Shapiro has been asked to present an added course on the subject.

Nazism and Fascism, and urging that the Communist Party be outlawed in this country, were passed at the 45th annual encampment of the J' wish War Veterans of the United Slates. Pre* nted by Samuel A. Rivkind ol Boston, chairman of the resolutions committee, the resolution called all forms of totalitarianism '"instruments of slavery and avowed < nemics of demo: racy." The resolution pledged "fullest support of all the J. W. V.'s resources for the protection and preservation of the democratic principles of America." Another resolution called for the specific outlawing of the Communist Party by state and federal enactment. The resolution urged that the Communist Party be removed from the ballot because "it is an alien organization which admittedly functions by directions and receives orders from Moscow.

Seligsberg, prominent Jewish welfare worker and former national president of Hadassah, who jiied at her home after a long illness. She was 67 years old. Hadassah, the women's Zionist Organization of America, announced that it would honor her memory with a grant of $10,000 to be used for a war emergency welfare project to be carried on in her name. Miss Seligsberg, who led the American Zionist Medical Unit in Palestine in 1918 and helped found Junior Hadassah in 1920, became interested in Zionism through her friendship with Miss Henrietta Szold. New York (WNS)—Nazi Germany and its Axis partner. Fascist Italy, are using anti-Semitism to stir up the Arabs in the Middle East against Great Britain, Ralph W. Barnes writes in a cabled dispatch to the New York Herald Tribune from Cairo. "As the war clouds thickened I in the spring of 1939," Mr. Barnes wrote, "propaganda from Berlin was intensified. British 'atroci' ties' in Palestine were painted in lurid colors in regular radio broadcasts in Arabic from the German capital. Here in the Arab world was a field in which the Germans could play antiJewish theme with effect." "As for paid agents from the Axis camp." the correspondent isaid, "there are probably many of them engaged in spreading unrest among the Arabs. There are various suggestions as to the identity of the Arab who may have been picked by' the Germans to lead the fifth column." The writer held that the Nazis would concentrate their efforts %  "on bringing into line Haj Amin Effendi Al Hussein, the exiled mufti of Jerusalem, who directed a three-year Arab revolt in Palestine." "Views are widely current," he said, "that at least some German and Italian money was involved in the revolt in Palestine. It is believed that this money 'was contributed to Arab clubs and other organizations. There I is no definite confirmation of persistent reports that the mufti or one of his principal lieutenants was personally in direct contact with the Germans during the period of the Palestine uprising." N( w York (WNS)—In "earnest support" of President Roosevelt's call to Americans to pray for Sunday. September 8, the co-chairman of the National Conference of Christians and Jews extended a call to local units of the organization in 2.00'j communities to join in obsorvin 'In day of prayer.

Clinchy, national director, emphasized the need of making America a land of peace. as well as achieving world peace. He said that constituent groups throughout the country will be urged to pray for peaceful relations among members of all faiths, races and economic groups in the nation as well as for international peace based on brotherhood, justice and liberty. "Every American without the ; fold of organized religion as well \ as many Christian and Jewish churchmen, needs to pray for j guidance as to what course the United States should take to maintain peace and prevent despotism," he added. New York (WNS)—L. M. Birkhead, national director of the Fnonds of Democracy, Inc.. made public a letter from John Steinbeck, the noted American novelist, in which the author of "The Grapes of Wrath" and "Of Mice and Men," vigorously assailed a Nazi-Fascist propaganda campaign which is attempting to discredit his works by labeling them as "Jewish propaganda and anti-Christian novels." Mr. Steinbeck's statement was made in a letter to Mr. Birkhead who recently brought the hatecampaign to Mr. Steinbeck's attention. Newest target of an attack in the controlled Axis press, Mr. Steinbeck ridiculed the current racial theories of the Axis partners and at the same time expressed concern for "a time when one must know a man's race before his work can be approved or disapproved." "It happens." Mr. Steinbeck stated, "that I am not Jewish and have no Jewish blood—but it only happens that way. I find that 1 do not experience any pride that it is so."

The order will meet with eager compliance by the Major Quisling regime, which betrayed Norway to Hitler. NAZIS TELL BRITISH JEWS STARTED WAR London (WNS)—While lowdiving Nazi bombers renewed their attacks on London, the Nazi radio went on the air to tell Britons that the Jews are to blame for the present destruction and death.

Abrahams, head of the political department of the New Zionist Organization. The first 100.000 men, Mr. Abrahams declared at a press conference, would quickly be mustered by recruiting in all parts of the world. He said. however, that most of the recruiting would be done in the United States. Mr. Abrahams said that the proposed Jewish army would be equipped by the British government, although an effort will be made to have Jews provide financial support for themselves. He mentioned also the possibility of a Jewish branch of the Royal Air Force, which would. I he said, attract Jewish pilots and I wireless operators in the United States. Individual members of Parliament and the Cabinet have giv| en the plan their support according to Mr. Abrahams.

My Saturdays are off. Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHINEAS J. BIRON) QUESTIONS UTOPIA A thought occurs to us, which at this time becomes a parallel to the tragedy wherein Jabotinsky had to die to become appreciated—had to pass from this earth before those that disagreed with him would acknowledge his sincerity—had to sacrifice his life to obtain the admittance from those about him of his value to his people and of the good that might have been gained, for the benefit of all, had they laid aside jealousies and personal animosities. In this very community and all over the world do these same parallels occur. How pitiful that man cannot appreciate the efforts of his fellow man striving for the betterment of htis people and all mankind. When will they realize their duty to pitch in and aid him and not to place obstacles in his path? When will humanity awaken to their wrongdoings? When will a public servant, the individual that sacrifices health, wealth and family life to work for the community—to give his all, be given that recognition that he deserves and is entitled to—or first must he die. The period of Shloshim has just passed after his sudden death and it is now that people begin properly to evaluate Vladimir Jabotinsky. Jabotinsky was the stormy petrel of Zionism and lived the last five years of his life as an exile horn the organization which he had helped to nurture—the World Zionist Organization. Yet there was not one among the official Zionist leaders who did not pay unstinting tribute to him. Even laborites, who had engaged in bloody clashes at times with Jabotinsky's followers in Palestine, were moved to praise. There was more than one tragedy and paradox in Jabotinsky's life. Here was a man who helped to found the Zionist Organization, yet died outside it. He gave his life to Palestine, yet died in exile from his homeland. He was the protagonist of a doctrine of militarism, yet as a person was completely unmilitant; his friends knew him as mild-mannered and gentle. His ideal was unity in Jewish life, yet he served as a cause of factionalism. One thing was revealed in the Zionist statements of tribute to Jabotinsky—the points of difference between official Zionism and Revisionism are essentially minor. It is to be hoped that this realization will speed a rapprochment between the World Zionist Organization and the New Zionist Organization. Such a development would be the most fitting memorial to a man of whom it can be truly said—he gave his life for Zionism. Did you see the interview which Wendell Willkie gave to the Jewish Morning Journal, and in which he promised to open the gates of the United States to all refugees if he is elected'' J%2hL^&Stf&+ • • • Why wasn't that statement released to the general press? ion that might come from a five 1.

These are enough Saturdays in which to have to put to a test my longheld opinion that the five-day week would bring a man back to the synagogue on the Sabbath. Yet the test is far from satisfactory. I don't know what's the matter with me. So I devote this column to a discussion of why Mr. Segal who has his Saturdays off hasn't been bath. It is a matter that should be on his conscience. When he gets home from work on Friday he does, indeed, feel the old Sabbath spaciousness. Ahead of him are two serene and uncrowded days. He indulges in inward chuckles: "I don t have to work tomorrow and don't have to work on Sunday. Two days of rest! We're certainly making great social progress."

FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 6, 1940 *Jewist fhridfiati PAGE FIVE 1* CONVENTION NOTES When we arrived at the Hollywood Beach Hotel Sunday morning and entered the main lobby, we suddenly felt as if we wire on Broadway and 42nd St. Everyone was excited and greeting everybody else and to make things more thrilling, Brother Jimmie Leonard was popping up here and there taking flashlight pictures .. I believe he even mugged me. It was indeed a very inspiring address that Mayor Alexander Orr made at the opening of the first day's business session. Although the content of the Mayor's address was very philosophical, it was very timely and practical and the address made by the Hon. Josiah Mors>at the conclusion of the banquet on Monday night was an unusual treatise, and a treat to those present. Professor Morse, who is head of the department of sociology and philosophy at the University of South Carolina, delivered the type of address that inspires the mind and soul of men to great heights and accomplishments. No doubt many of you will accuse Professor Morse of being impractical but that is because we nave come to measure everything that transpires by material standards we must admit that in these dark, trying times that philosopnic.il words of wisdom are elevating, and by inspiring the mind, can in turn empower the body to do what otherwise would be impossible. There were no dull moments due to the extraordinary manner in which Brother Al Pallo' and Jennie Rotfort, co-chairmen of the convention, together with their committee, handled the convention. A complete program was prepared for both the men and the women and what is more the program was carried out. Those of the delegates, their wives, guests and visitor.? who came from out of town were afforded during their stay, a splendid opportunity to visit in and about Hollywood and the Greater Miami area and were able to take in many of our attractive sights. Getting back to the business sessions, I might state that they encompassed many moods there was plenty of humor, subtlety, seriousness, and excitement and no doubt the out| standing feature of the convention was the splendid manner in i which Brother Barney J. Cohen : conducted and officiated over t the business meeting He was | called upon many times to exi ercise exceptional ability, wit [and strategy and succeeded each time His presence of mind, patience and charm was recogi nized and commented upon very i favorably by everyone who observed him Brother Cohen is la leader and will undoubtedly I move up into the National scope of B'nai B'rith and I believe before many years will be our National President. At this time we should give | thanks to all of the out-going officers of the State Federation and Tallahassee Notes The wedding of Miss Evelyn Carol Blate of Atlanta, to Michael Alterman of Atlanta, son of Mrs. N. Alterman of New York, took place Sunday, September 1 at noon at the Temple Israel Synagogue with Rabbi Max Eichhorn officiating. The bride was given in marriage by her brother Victor Blate of Winter Haven and attended by her sister. Miss Sara Blate as maid of honor. Misses Marilyn and Betty Ann Fleet of Live Oak, nieces of the bride, were the flower girl and train bearer respectively. David Alterman of Atlanta, was his brother's best man, and ushers were Harold Mendelson, Irving Schiff and Herbert Blate, brother of the bride. A program of organ music was played by Irvi recognize the fine work that they %  did this past year and we look ln F1 "t. nephew of the bride, forward to an even more successand vocal selections were sung fill administration of the newly | by Mrs. H. Lippman. Many outof-town guests were present. Folof lowing the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. with have the benefit of the experi| ence of an additional year of State Federation existence. To the newly elected officers we extend our congratulations Misses Sand best wishes and know that in them our Federation will ex1 pand and progress ... to Broth1 er Elry Stone we give particular recognition for his many years William Fleet entertained an informal reception. Lillian and Gertrude Fleet presided at the punch bowls and Mrs. Sidney Mendelson was in charge of the bride's book. Assisting in serving were Spechler. The bride is a sister of Mrs. William A. Fleet and Miss Sarah Blate of Tallahassee and of Herbert Blate of Miami. She has resided in Atlanta for the past two years. Mr. Alterman is associated with the Wilby-Kincey Film corporation in Atlanta where the couple will make their home after a wedding trip to Miami. PLAIN TALK (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4) of untiring efforts and work in .;__„„ behalf of B'nai B'rith. He has Mlsses Rosahc R osner, Pearl psalm of thanks: Thank goodness for the union that does this for me on Saturday. Mr. Segal, alas, doesn't think of the religious connotations associated with Saturday. He exults in the day only as an occasion on which he can provide his mind with several hours more pf sleep. He awakens again about 8 and lies there in a semi-coma through which the singing of the birds in the nearby trees penetrates pleasantly. So until 9 when Mr. Segal arises from bed, performs his ablutions, eats breakfast, reads the morning paper What new terrors has blitzkreig brought overnight?" He exults in his idleness "Nothing for me to do until Monday! Nothing to do but to loaf and to sit in the sunlight, to read, to go calling on Ellen." PHONB 28816 j Walterson Body Works { i i J. V.

Fleet, Irene Gross and Rhoda I regret to report that on no Saturday so far has he thought Come on! Let's go.) of the religious duties that have to do with the synagogue. He has gone driving to look at the country in its summer garb; he has gone out to the open air gymnasium to which he belongs and there given his almost nude body to the sunlight; he has called on Ellen and tickled her under the chin to make her laugh. Mr. Segal has, indeed, found a variety of things to do except go to the synagogue on the Sabbath. (He has. in fact, been doing with the Sabbath of Saturday as most other people do with the Sabbath of Sunday.) I should, perhaps, admonish him about it: "Segal, you should be ashamed of yourself." But the fellow would probably rationalize. He would tell me that he feels God's presence in the country when he goes driving on a lovely day, that he is close to godliness under the benign sun at the gymnasium, that he is conscious of divinity when Ellen laughs. These sound like trick answers. Have I been wrong, then, in believing that the five-day week would release the souls of men for their religious duties on the Sabbath? Or is there something the matter with Segal. I leave the whole thing to the readers. (Yet I do not despair of Mr. Segal. Some Saturday morning I shall say to him, Segal, it's time to get up and get ready for the synagogue. I've always said that the five-day week will be beneficial to religious life and I've got to prove it's so. He will probably want to sleep late, but I shall command him sharply.
