k TO CONSIDER
JEWISH BILL
Sofia, Bulgaria (WNS)A far-
reaching decree, drastically curb-
ing the political and economic
nghts of Bulgaria's 50,000 Jews
wjH be introduced in Parliament
on October 28, it was disclosed.
Described by its sponsor, Petar
Gabrovskl, Minister of the In-
ter! r as a law for the protection
of the nation, the decree has
been accepted by the Cabinet
and now awaits final passage by
Parliament
The section of the decree which
deals with Jews defines all thoce
whose fathers were Jewish as
Jews. It stipulates that Jews
cannot occupy State, municipal
or public positions, and cannot
own rural lands. The law would
prohibit Jews from participating
in the theatre and cinema.
If the bill is passed, Jews will
be permitted to practice their
professions only in proportion to
the Jewish minority in their par.
ticular locality. The Ministerial
Council will determine the per-
centage of Jews that may par-
JJy ticipate in commerce, industry
or the professions. Another point
forbids Jews to employ domestic
servants of Bulgarian origin.
The present decree marks the
first time in the history of Bul-
garia that a bill curbing the
rights of Jews has been brought
up The Jewish population con-
stitutes only seven-tenths of 1
per cent of the total population
and hitherto had never been con-
sidi red .i problem.
Unusual interest has been
I in the bill, virtually a
copy of other bills re-
stituted in Yugoslavia
lumania at the insistence of
Nazi Germany. Jewish circles
here are convinced that the al-
leged "Jewish question" was
manufactured in Berlin.
Ni it ml quarters believed that
the bill would evoke a storm of
controversy m Parliament since
is have noted few mani-
ns of anti Semitism
among the people. A large ma-
the Jews are small trad-
1 and for the most part very
poor.
A check-up disclosed that at
t there are no Jews in the
Bulgarian Army. There are no
J holding State positions.
Meanwhile. Bulgarian Jews look
forward with apprehension to
the forthcoming debate. Passage
of tiie bill would mean another
diplomatic triumph for Nazi
Germany and another blow at
European Jewry.
WERFEL ARRIVES IN U.
S. FROM NAZI FRANCE
New York (WNS)Franz Wer-
fel. celebrated author of "The
Forty Days of Musa Dagh," and
Heinrich Mann, writer and broth-
er of Thomas Mann, were among
the 15 prominent German writ-
ers who arrived in the United
States from Lisbon aboard the
Greek liner Nea Hellas.
All of the German of letters,
Jews and Gentiles, had to be
| sneaked out of France by un-
derground railway methods since
they were all wanted by the
jNazi Gestapo. In the group was
JAngelus Gottfried Mann, son of
I the Nobel prize winner.
Mr. Werfel was reluctant to
describe his escape from France,
telling reporters: "I can't speak.
The most of us are still in France.
My friends are all in concentra-
tion camps."
The writers were met at the
pier by Dr. Frank Kingdon. chair-
man of the Emergency Rescue
Committee, which helped effect
their escape. Dr. Kingdon said
that so many important anti-
Nazi writers had been able to
escape because the Gestapo had
not had time to comb southern
France Thoroughly.
PLAN NAT'L
UNITY DRIVE
New York (WNS)One hund-
red prominent Protestants, Cath-
olics and Jews, leaders in the
fields of business, labor, religion
and education met at the Harv-
ard Club to lay plans for the
Mobilization for National Unity
membership drive to be con-
ducted in the New York area by
the National Conference of
Christians and Jews. Basil O'-
Connor, chairman of the Mobil-
ization, presided.
The Mobilization for National
Unity aims to arouse New York-
ers against the activities of in-
dividuals and groups promoting
hatred or racial and religious el-
ements, and to create national
unity by encouraging friendship
and cooperation among all racial
and religious groups and to
strengthen their common alleg-
iance to the spirit of America.
Mr. O'Connor described the
drive as being "of vital import-
ance to the safety of this na-
tion."
GRAND JURY INDICTS
EIGHT G.-A. BUNDISTS
Newton, N. J. (WNS)Eight
members of the German-Ameri-
can Bund, including G. Wilhelm
Kunze, the national fuehrer
since the imprisonment of Fritz
Kuhn, were indicted by the Sus-
sex County grand jury for vio-
lation of the 1935 New Jersey
statutes, which prohibit the in-
citation of racial or religious
hatred by persons making
speeches or permitting such
speeches to be made.
The arraignment of the eight
bundists was scheduled for Oct.
18. The maximum penalty on
conviction is three years in pris-
on and a $5,000 fine. The indict-
ments were the result of an in-
vestigation of activities at Camp
Nordland, local Nazi camp.
Separate indictments were re-
turned against August Klapprott,
eastern district leader of the
bund and manager of Camp
Nordland; Matthias Kohler, New
Jersey treasurer of the bund;
i Leonard D. Clark, a writer for
! Nazi newspapers, and Wilbur V.
JKeegan, New Jersey attorney for
the Nazi group. These four were
accused of making speeches "pro-
'moting hatred and hostility."
SUKKOTH, THE SEASON OF GLADNESS
by DAVID H. PANTZ
Tishre is a month of holidays.
It begins with the ten days of
repentance, which include Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur. and
ushers in. on the fifteenth day of
the month, Sukkoth. the Feast
of Tabernacles. The former is
a period of profound seriousness,
when the contrite heart and the
repentant soul evaluate mans
moral responsibilities The lat-
ter, by contrast, is a season of
joy.
VOTE
YOUR DUTY

DO IT WITH BALLOTS
NOT BULLETS
From its very inception Suk-
koth has been characterized by
its joyous nature. In ancient
days, when the Israelites tilled
the soil of their own land, they
celebrated the end of the harvest
season by the Chag ha-Asif. the
Festival of Ingathering, which is
another name for Sukkoth.
They rejoiced in the reaping of
the year's toil, and thanked God
for the abundance stored in barn
and bin, while praying that He
send new rains for the coming
year. They expressed their joy
by a profusion of offerings to the
bounteous Giver of the harvest.
As one of the three Pilgrimage
festivals. Sukkoth had the same
official status as Passover and
Shabuoth In reality, however,
it was assumed a much greater
importance in the life of the peo-
ple than did the other two holi-
days, and was, in fact, referred
to as "the Festival." It is easy
to understand why such promin-
ence should have been accorded
this holiday. While every male
was enjoined to make the pre-
scribed pilgrimage to a sanctu-
ary on each of the three agricul-
tural festivals, it was difficult
for the Jewish peasant to leave
his village during Passover and
Shabuoth, since these were the
seasons for cutting and thresh-
ing the grain. On Sukkoth. how-
ever, when the crops had been
gathered from the fields, he
could rejoice with a clear con-
science.
Thus it was that so many peo-
ple were able to visit the Sanc-
tuary on this occasion. The
trails of Palestine rseounded
with the songs of the festive pil-
grims and their families. None
could resist the temptation to
take an active part in so joyous
an event.
The Temple became the sym-
bol of unity, and on Sukkoth. as
well as on Passover, every part
of the inhabited world poured
forth its Jews, who ascended,
renown join in the torch dances,
on. From near and far, on foot
or in chariot, on donkey and on
camel, the roads were black with
pilgrims who traveled in ecstasy
to share in the Temple services.
They sang and shouted, and sent
forth triumphant blasts from
their pipes whenever they met
still another caravan of Jews at
the converging points of the
road. The irrepressible mirth of
the masses was louder by far
than the usually dominant ani-
mal calls.
But silence now, for already
visible is the Temple, the goal
of their journey. They are awe-
stricken, but their hearts are
singing in anticipation of the
beautiful ceremony they will
witness in the Temple. The pro-
cession of priests, lulav and eth-
rog in hand, marches around the
i Altar to the sound of the Shofar,
'while they chant, "Save now, I
beseech Thee. O Lord; O Lord. I
beseech Thee, send now prosper-
ity." (Ps. 118:25.)
As the flower awaits the sun.
;so the people await the cere-
mony of the drawing of the wa-
I ter. "He that hath not beheld
the joy of the Drawing of Water
'hath never seen joy in his life."
The spirit of joviality is so preva-
lent that even men of piety and
renown oin in the torch dances.
' while the people carol hymns
and songs to the accompaniment
of flutes, harps and cymbals.
According to the calendar.
Sukkoth begins on the fifteenth
day of Tishre, but its observ-
ances are begun on the very eve-
ning that Yom Kippur termin-
ates Only a few hours after the
long day spent m fasting and
penitential prayer, Jews hasten
to drive the first nail into the
Sukkah or booth. Not very much
work is involved in the building
of this little edifice which, by
its very nature, is hastily-con-
structed and insubstantial. This
character is preserved because of
the historical association with
the Divine protection during the
forty years of desert wandering,
and also because of a religious
connotation, epitomized by Mai-
monides. He said that "man
ought to remember his evil days
in his days of prosperity. He will
thereby be induced to thank
God repeatedly, to lead a mod-
est and humble life. We. there-
fore, on Tabernacles, leave our
houses, in order to dwell in
DEPRIVED OF
CITIZENSHIP
Vichy, France (WNS)French
j Jewry was struck a staggering
blow when the semi-Fascist re-
gime of Marshal Petain repealed
the 1870 'Chemieux Law, which
gave native Jews in Algeria the
same civil and political rights
as Frenchmen.
Abrogation of the Cremieux
Law, one of the first acts of the
Third Republic, deprived ap-
proximately 60,000 Algerian
Jews of their citizenship and rel-
egated them to the position of
second-class citizens.
Henceforth, Algerian Jews will
not be permitted to vote or to
hold public office. Their civil
rights and duties, including mar-
riage and divorce, will be gov-
erned by French laws.
The Government announced
that special exemptions would
be granted to Jews who fought
| with the French forces in the
World War and during the 19:il>-
40 campaign and received the
Legion of Honor decoration fo*
military cause or the Croix de
Guerre. Exemptions will be
granted also to Algerian Jews
who have rendered special ser-
vices to the nation.
The Cremieux Law conferred
citizenship on all Jews in Al-
geria. As a result of the govern-
ment's announcement, Jewish
| lawyers, doctors and college pro-
fessors of Algerian origin will
lose their posts unless they re-
ceive exemptions.
It was estimated that at least
15.000 Algerian Jews are now in
France, An Algerian Jew, wish-
ing to remain in France, must
apply for a p. rnut in the same
manner that a foreigner must
apply for permission to stay.
Jewish circles in France ex-
pressed fears that the latest Pe-
tain action would provoke new
anti-Jewish disturbances in Al-
geria where Nazificd elements
have been inciting the popula-
tion against the Jews.
Previous anti-Jewish demon-
strations in Algeria resulted in
the smashing of windows of
Jewish-owned shops and in in-
juries to scores of Jews.
MAGAZINE LAUDS J. D. C.'S
AID TO URUGUAY REFUGEES
New York (WNS)Praise of
the Joint Distribution Commit-
!tee for its guidance and support
of work in behalf of German-
Jewish refugees in Uruguay was
voiced by "Mundo Uruguaya,"

ly of Montevideo. The magazine
devoted a page of pictures to
show the activity of the Associa-
sion Philanthropica Israelita. the
central Jewish relief organiza-
tion, which receives financial
support from the J. D. C.

"Mundo Uruguaya" described
the work of the Association in
I rendering economic aid to refu-
Igees, helping them to become in-
tegrated into the Uruguayan
I community.

TRAGEDY OF THE RUMANIAN JEWS
The occupation of Rumania by Nazi military unitsunder
the pretext of "protecting" the borders and the oil wells of the
countrydeepens the tragedy of Rumanian Jewry.
It is sufficient to see what has happened to the Jews in the
"protected" territory of Bohemia-Moravia in order to visualize
as to what is in store for the Jews of the "protected" Rumania.
Precarious as the situation of Rumanian Jewry became dur-
ing the last weeks as result of the Iron Guard ascension to pow-
er, it is to be expected that their lot will become much worse now
that Nazi soldiers and officers are pouring into Rumania by the
thousands, and the Gestapo has officially established itself in
every Rumanian city.
Nominally an independent country whose independence is
guaranteed by the Axis powers under the Vienna agreement.
Rumania is actually becoming nothing more than a new pro-
tectorate of Nazi-Germany. There will be little difference now
between the status of Bucharest and that of Prague. But while
the Rumanians may soon awake to realization of the fact that
they are in no better position than the Czechs, it is not likely
that they will follow the Czech policy of disapproval of the anti-
Jewish measures, which the Nazis will certainly intensify in
Rumania. On the contrary, as far as anti-Jewish action is con-
cerned, the Nazi occupants in Rumania are well aware of the
fact that in this particular field they will find the full support of
the Iron Guard Government, which is as anti-Semitic as Hitler
and Streicher.
It is. thereforee, no surprise that Jews in Rumania are now
trying to get out of the country while this is still possible. Who-
ever can tries to find his way to Greece and to Turkey, where
Jews are still considered human beings and treated as such.
But how long will it be before Greece and Turkey become the
target of Hitler? What will the trapped Rumanian Jews do
then?______________

London (WNS)The possibil-

was strongly hinted by L'Oeuvre,
a French newspaper published in
the occupied zone.
The paper said that Nazi offi-
cials in the occupied area con-

IPLfllN TALK
| THE GENTILE PROBLEM
By Al #!
A citizen says I should be sure
to read "The Gentile Problem"
in the August number of the
Christian Century. I haven't
gotten around to it yet but 1
like the tile of the piece and
have appropriated it for this
week's column.
We hear so much said about
the Jewish problemwe our-
selves do much of the talking on
the subjectthat it is a relief to
take up the Gentile problem. I
am really sick and tired of be-
ing a problem.
Of course, there is no Gentile
problem any more than there is
in reality a special Jewish prob-
lem. Yet it is as easy to invent
the Gentile problem as it was
to invent the Jewish problem. I
shall invent it.
I shall walk down the street,
and whom do I see? He is the
Gentile John Q' Zilch. I don t
know Zilch but recently I read
about him. He is the one who
swindled a lot of people in that
stock deal.
"Do you know who that is?" I
ask my wife who is with me.
"That's Zilch the Gentile."
"Those Gentiles again." she
sighs.
"Yes. the time will come when
we'll have to do something about
Gentiles." I observe. "The way
they swindle people."
My wife recalls some Gentiles
she has read about m the paper.
. "There was that awful pick-
pocket they caught in the street
car yesterday. He had a Gentile
name."
Her niece's cousin once heard
of a Gentile who put over some-
thing in a real estate deal.
"Gentiles." she says, "certain-
ly do like money and know how
to get it. There's that Henry
Ford. Thev say he has a billion
dollars. And that Rockefeller!
He has his hands in everything.
Do you know, he runs all the oil
wells. He thinks he is the
foundation of everythingthe
Rickefeller Foundation. He con-
trols disease and everything."
Then, as I point out. the Gen-
tiles seem to hold the best pub-
lic offices and they are in all
the banks and have the best
houses in town and drive some
of the best cars "You can
scarcely go anywhere without
having" a Gentile to deal with."
My wife whispers: "And do
you know what? Gentiles are in-
ternational bankerslike Mor-
gan."
"Yes." I reply, "and they arc
communists too. (That Browder
is a Gentile "
"My mother's brother's sister-
in-law told me about their being
international bankers. She read
it somewhere."
We come to the Empire State
Tower. I point up to its grace-
ful height "And who do you
think owns that building? Gen-
tiles, of course. And who made
the steel that's in it? Gentiles."
"Yes." she says, "and we have
only a jalopy but these Gentiles
have all these swell cars."
Well, it is easy as that to in-
vent a Gentile problemas sim-
ple as it was to make the Jew-
ish problem. You pick out a few
Gentiles you dnn't likesome
bad samples and some rich ones
and say. "Yes. there are Gen-
for you. We'll certainly
have to do something about Gen-
tiles, considering the kind of
people they are"
It isn't even necessary to know
any Gentiles in order to make a
problem out of them. In fact,
you can feed your prejudices
more successfully if you don't
know any of a group of people
you despise. If ou knew Gen-
tiles you would discover that
most of the more decent people
and that discovery might be fatal
to your prejudice. For the suc-
cessful invention of a Gentile
problem one shouldn't bother
with the truth about Gentiles.
After you have worked up a
distaste for some Gentiles noth-
ing any Gentile does will please
you. Your aunt tells you what
she heard about Gentiles from
your cousin to whom it came
from her sister-in-law who had
it from her brother-in-law's
niece, and you pass it all assid-
uously along and pretty soon

day prevent Jews from being

CORRECTION
Notwithstanding complaints,
we still insist that it was the
voice of Senator Bridges which
asked that silly question about
the Rothschild money at the de-
bate between the Senator and
Secretary Ickes We were not
at the broadcast, and it is quite
! possible that a member of the
audience did raise the question
. But. then, either Senator
I Bridges repeated it and brought
, it to the attention of Ickes (which
could hardly be considered ap-
propriate), or the audience mem-
ber had exactly the same voice
as the Senator ... If the latter
was the case, we are glad to
apologize to the Senator.

ESCAPE ARTIST
Last week we had a private
chat with Lion Feuchtwanger,
the reports of whose death, you
jmay remember, we never did
believe Feuchtwanger told
us about the impossible situation
he was in even before he landed
in a concentration camp in
France When he went to a
public cafe the authorities told
him that foreigners should have
enough tact not to exhibit them-
selves When he kept away
they sent policemen to tell him
that foreigners should have
enough tact not to snub French
(life. and should mix freely with
Frenchmen Incidentally.
Feuchtwanger finished the third
volume of his Josephus trilogy,
and managed to send the manu-
script of it from France to the
United States, directly to Chief
Librarian MacLeish of the Li-
brary of Congress ... His next
book will be a novel with Queen
.Esther as its heroine The
story of his thrilling escape from
INasioccupied France will short-
ly be syndicated in a serial that
will appear In newspapers
throughout the country.

THE Y. M. H. A,
NOTES
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
""~~~~ r- ; v Ml
"At the Y board meeting held
last Thursday night, Joseph A.
Berman, chairman of the mem-
bership drive committee, gave a
detailed report of the plans and
preparations that are being made
for the city-wide membership
campaign. It is planned to con-
tact every Jewish person in this
area, with the hope of obtaining
his or her membership to the Y
Brochures describing in detail
the activities of the Y together
with pictures of various projects,
will be mailed to every Jewish
person.
One of the outstanding feat-
ures of this campaign will be a
prize of a trip to Havana for two
pi-ople to the person who obtains
100 Men's Senior Division. Already
many teams have been formed
and keen competition is being
manifested by many. All of them
want to get this coveted prize.
Many social activities are
planned for the week of the
membership drive, details of
which will be given in the next
week's issue of the Floridian. In
the meantime, don't forget the
date <>f the membership drive,
November 4-14 inclusive.
Y DANCE SOCIAL SUCCESS
One of the finest affairs ever
to be held at the Y took place
last Sunday evening, when the
5th Annual Holiday Dance took
place The auditorium was beau-
tifully decorated. Tables were
set on the inclosed porch, in the
library and on the patio. A very
appreciative crowd attended.
Some of the outstanding citi-
zens of this vicinity were here
to pay tribute to the Y.
Al Friedman and his orchestra
furnished excellent music and
Chester Alexander was master of
ceremonies for the entertainment
which he furnished.
We want to take this oppor-
tunity to thank Chester Alex-
ander for his entertainment, and
to the following committee who
so ably and diligently worked to
make this affair a success:
Charles Blau, chairman; Jules
Wilson. Sid Kraft, Alvin Glucks-
man and Misses Frances Gins-
berg, Essie Schaffer. Ann Lieb-
erman. Jean Seitlin, Margaret
Horowitz. Bea Merlin. Ann Ja-
cobs, Blanche Strauss and Millie
Rubenstein.
Thank you ladies and gentle-
men for a swell affair.
DRAMATICS
The Dramatics Club under the
direction of Dr. Sidney Cassell
is in full swing. For the present,
rehearsals are being held every
Tuesday night at 7:30. All those
interested, please report to Dr.
Cassell at the time stated.
SOCIAL SERVICE
Requests for information about
rooms and board from all parts
of the country have been coming
in so fast, that our executive di-
rector has been unable to keep
up with his mail. Already the
listings that were given to Mr
Grossman have been exhausted.
We request all those who have
rooms or apartments to let to
communicate with Mr. Grossman
immediately. There is no charge
for such service. Just another
Y project.
EMPLOYMENT SERVICE
Many requests are being re-
ceived by the Y daily for posi-
tions by employers. It might
surprise many to know that in
some instances we were unable
to supply the help, due to the
fact that insufficient applica-
tions were listed with us. Jo-
seph A. Berman, our vocational
guidance director, requests all
those who desire a position to
communicate with Mr. Grossman
at the Y. An appointment will
be made when such applicant
will be interviewed by Mr. Ber-
man.
Employers and business men
desiring clerical and other help,
please communicate with the Y.
NEW PROJECT FOR THE Y
Through the cooperation of
Mrs. Stanley C. Myers, a class in
first aid for women has been
added to the Y projects. This
class will meet every Tuesday
morning and will be instructed
by Mr. Roney.
CONGRATULATIONS
Word has just been received
of the marriage of Alvin Gross-

HILLEL HY-LITES
by STANLEY B. RICHARD
On the afternoon of November
9, 1940, the Universities of Flor-
ida and Georgia will lock horns
in their annual gridiron battle.
The game will be followed by an
evening dance given by the Hil-
lcls of Florida State College. Uni-
versity of Florida. University of
Georgia and the Jacksonville
AZA.
Capacity congregations filled
the synagogues in Tallahassee
and Gainesville during the High
Holidays. Rabbi David M. Eicls-
horn, director of Hillel at the
University of Florida and at
Florida State College, officiated
for Hillel girls at the Tallahas-
see community. The Hillel at
the University of Florida coop-
erated with the Gainesville con-
gregation in securing the services
of Rabbi Herbert Hendel of the
Jewish Institute of Religion for
the Holy Days. Oscar Rappa-
port of Miami, Fred Schoenburj
of Miami and Kurt Teutsch, ref-
ugee student, received high
praise for their efforts in aiding
Rabbi Hendel with the services.
High Holiday services were
broadcast over radio stations
WTAL of Tallahassee and WR'JF
of Gainesville.
The Daughters of Israel of
Gainesville will be hostesses to
the University of Florida Hillel
students at a Simchas Torah
party at the Gainesville Syna-
gogue on Thursday evening, Oc-
tober 24.
CONCEPTS
"But the world outside and
the world inside are Intimately

a healthy organism vomits pois-
on."Dorothy Thompson.
A TYPICAL JERRY W. CARTER ANSWER TO THE
ADVOCATES OF A TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT
FOR AMERICA.
Tallahassee. Florida.
Mr. Hitler
Attention: Subordinates In charge
Lindbergh for President Club No. I
P. O. Boi S
Pals Alto. California.
Replying to your circular letter
f August. 1940. soliciting my sup-
port. I beg to advise THAT:
Prior to the Hoover depression,
1 thought I was making money-
buying and selling real estate,
operating on a marginnegotiate
Ing the resale of the property Im-
mediately.
When the Hoover depression got
through with me, all 1 had left w as
one wifeseven boysa hound dog
and several deficiency judgments
against me; a home that waa saved
(or ma by the Florida Homestead
Law, heavily mortgaged, In a di-
lapidated condition, and the roof
leaking so badly we had to move
out doors when It rained to keep
from getting wet.
We were discouraged from re-
pairing the property for the mort-
gage holder who collected eight
percent annually. And he was
threatening foreclosure and would
have done so probably had It not
been for the vast repairs necessary
before the property could have been
rented.
The State and National Banks
were going through the annual pro-
cess of closing their doors and wip-
ing out depositors with such regu-
larity that (although I was not
naive enough to deposit any ap-
preciable sum of money In any of
these financial quick-sand Institu-
tions) I took the precaution to buy
a cashiers check to remit collec-
tions I had made as agent for others
and the dern thing closed while the
check was In transit and I came
near being Indicted as an embez-
zler before I could raise sufficient
ftinrls to make the cashiers check
good.
I called on My Brother and
Mother and found out their banks
had Just gone through the annual
closing process also and that they
were helpless to help themselves,
let alone help me.
Fortunately for me, Mr. Roose-
velt was elected about the time It
looked as though I was hopelessly
involved and gave us the guarantee
bank deposit system and a Home
Owner's Loan Corporation and did
not only take up the mortgage for
me at five and one-half percent,
but furnished me with a sufficient
amount to put the home in good
repair and allowed me to pay back
the principal and the Interest at a
rate about equal to what I had been
Paying as Interest alone before.
The beneficial results that I per-
sonally experienced from these two
acts alone of Mr. Roosevelt's Ad-
ministration entitle* him to my
support, even If he never accom-
plished anything else for ordinary
people like myself. However. I am
sure a well posted person could
enumerate pages of acts that have
been beneficial and a God-send to
the masses of the people who had
never received any serious consH-
eratlon by any Administration prlar
to Mr Roosevelt's. To my knowl-
edge he Is the only person elevated
Btates who had enough courage,
back bone and Intestinal fortitude
of the non-skid and knobby-tread-
type to take the banks out of tba
control of the speculators, gamblers
and wildcatters and set up a Home
Owner's Loan Corporation and
other similar Institutions that Jerk-
ed a knot In the tail of the shylocks
and loan sharks, often referred to
as economic royalists, who have for
a century been bleeding the masses
of the people white by exacting
usurious rates of Interest and ex-
cess profits.
President Roosevelt recognizing
the fset that we can today take
less than forty percent of the entire
population. In conjunction with the
modern labor saving machines,
systems and devices and manufac-
ture and create and distribute more
of all the necessities and luxuries
of life than the whole one hundred
percent could use If they all had
bank accounts and could buy what
they wanted. Inaugurated the WPA
for the purpose of giving employ-
ment to those whom labor saving
machines and devices have dis-
placed and enabled them to at least
live instead of starve.
Through this and many ether
methods, he has taken the raassaa
of the people out from under the
ruthless domination of the para-
sitical royalist of this Country, who
hate Mr. Roosevelt for breaking up
their profitable racket and are to-
day opposing him on every band
In my opinion, the masses of the
people should love Mr. Roosevelt
for the enemies ho has made.
As to your circular letter, couch
ed in the most seductive language,
astutely advocating Mr. Hitler's
world revolution: I am not in favor
of abandoning our Free Democracy
and substituting any such govern-
ment as Mr. Hitler or Stalin nan
brought to the people of Europo
and Asia.
As for the candidacy for Mr.
Charles Lindbergh, for the purpose
of carrying out your program. It
does not appeal to me at all. Ho,
like Mr. A. daffy Hitler, has al
ways been a lone wolf and the only
thing that he ever accomplished
worthy of consideration was flying
the St. Louis across the Atlantic.
This was a one man operation and
from what I can ascertain, he Is a
Hitlerite by nature and has dem-
onstrated it so thoroughly that Mr.
Hitler decorated him with an iron
cross. As far as I am concerned,
he has my permission to return to
the land from whence his Father
came, whose pro-German sentiment
and activities during the last world
war caused hlra to be Investigated
and with difficulty avoided being
put In a detention camp.
If such an organization as yours
Is successful In misleading suf-
ficient American people to defeat
Mr. Roosevelt, with a candidate
favored by totalitarlans or eco-
nomic royalists, then I can only
say to the American people what a
little boy said after an unsuccessful
attempt to head off a very young
calf that had deserted its mother
and took off after a bull that was
rushing pell mell across the woods;
exhausted, he sat down on a log
and said "go It damn you. you will
learn the difference when sucking
time cemes."
I am NOT for Mr. Lindbergh. I
AM for Mr. Roosevelt
Very truly yours.
JERRY W. CARTER.

you may have an Anti-Gentile

what's troubling the world will

THE ETERNAL ROAD
Comment by Rabbi Colman A.
Zwitman:
This week's front page news
which announced the arrival of
Franz Werfel as a refugee from
Nazified France, is significant,
for both of his major plays on
the Jewish theme deal with com-
munities seeking refuge. Espe-
cially in "The Eternal Road''
Werfel portrays with dignity the
role of the eternal wanderer per-
sonified by Israel's trek through
the ages. The fact that news-
paper reporters tell us that Mr.
Werfel refused to speak or to
give out any statements on the
present plight of suffering refu-
gees, should not hinder us from
remembering that Mr Werfel
has said much and said it well
in his drama "The Eternal
Road.'' true medium of the ex-
pression of his soul. The end
of the play breaks with a cres-
cendo:
Ye sorrowers, no judgment by
mortals wrought
Can blot out or bring Israel to
naught
God's eternal promise and cov-
enants are
Immortal beyond ev'n His sun
or His star.
Be grateful for sorrow, your
sorrow's cause
In divine strength rooted still
upward draws
Be grateful for fire burning
dross, forcing you
With the love of your God the
world to pierce through.
My people, in dreams hear the
sounds that abide.
The bridegroom's singing, the
joy of the bride.
I meet you Wanderer, set free
from all harm,
Into the kingdom of my
strong arm
FEDERATION NOTES
by ISAAC JOFTE
Executive Director
One of the most interesting
Budget Committee meetings of
the series was held on Monday
evening, October 14, at which
time deliberation was had on all
of the local agencies and causes
supported partly or wholly by
the Greater Miami Jewish Fed-
eration.
It was announced, on behalf of
the Rabbinical Association of
Greater Miami that, after a num-
ber of meetings, a single group
has been organized, composed of
all of the local Rabbis and others
interested in the cause of Jewish
education, and that the first step
has been taken to unify the sys-
tem of education of the Jewish
youth of Greater Miami, which
includes Miami Beach. It is
hoped in the near future to form
a Central Bureau of Jewish Ed-
ucation, patterned along the
lines of similar organizations in
many of the larger cities in the
country.
Needless to say, this announce-
ment was greeted with enthu-
siastic response by those attend-
ing the meeting, and the com-
mittee voted unanimously to rec
ommend to the board of direct-
ors that one lump sum of a sub-
stantial amount be allocated to
a responsible selected committee,
to be distributed by them equit-
ably to the several existing
schools, and in addition another
sum shall be earmarked as a re-
serve fund to be used for the
advancement and creation of the
Bureau of Jewish Education and.
ultimately, it is hoped, for the
erection of a United Hebrew
School.
Federation wishes the move-
ment God speed, and trusts this
is the beginning of a unification
of efforts on behalf of other
local needs.
Also taken up at the meeting
were allocations for the coming
year, for the Y. M. H. A.. Miami
Refugee Committee, which in-
cludes Miami Section of the Na-
tional Council of Jewish Women,
and the Miami Chapter of Ha-
dassah.
On Tuesday evening, October
22, the combined session of the
executive and budget committees
will be in the form of a dinner
meeting, to be addressed by Mr.
Henry Montor of New York City,
executive vice chairman of the
United Jewish Appeal, which
consists of the Joint Distribution
Committee, United Palestine Ap-
peal and National Refugee Ser-
vice. He is expected to bring a
message of vital importance in
connection with the overseas and
refugee situation.

booths. We shall remember that
this was once our condition."
Indeed for the duration of this
holiday, many Jews will almost
literally live in these flimsy
booths. Study and conversation,
eating and. for some, even sleep-
ing will take place in the Suk-
kah, if the weather permits; for
such is the Law. The women
will light the candles here before
the evening meal, and will join
the men in the Grace after the
meal. And all will want to en-
ter the Sukkah in the morning to
recite blessings over the lulav
and ethrog. In general, every-
one, especially the children, will
take the opportunity to enjoy
the happy atmosphere of the
temporary building..
The actual construction of the
Sukkah is itself an occasion for
merriment. From the night after
Yom Kippur until the beginning
of the holiday proper, four days
later, every member of the fam-
ily will insist that he or she be
given an equal share in the
building and decoration of the
booth. The men will put up the
walls and cover the roof sparsely
with pine branches or with nar-
row laths. The women will adorn
.he walls with white sheets and
pictures and other decorations,
and the children will hang fruits
and Dowers from roof and cross-
ocam. Apples and pears and
grapes and plums will form a
rainbow-hued medley against the
background of the clean, white
drapes. Song and good cheer
will be the dominant note.
For seven days the good sea-
son of joy will last. The
eighth day is one oi solemn as-
;imbly. called. in Hebrew,
Shcmini Azeret. This is a festi-
val dedicated to the prayer for
rain because, in Palestine, it
marks the beginning of the rainy ,
season. Like Sukkoth, Shcmini
Azeret is also an occasion for'
joy in the certainty that God will '
srant the people's prayer. Out-
Jide of Palestine, the whole fes- j
tival season culminates in the
happiest day of all. Simchas To-
rah. On the evening of this day.
after the services and the verse*
by-verse recitation of the Atari
Haretah, the Torah procession
will take place. The scrolls will
be taken out of the Ark and car-
ried around the Synagogue sev-
en times, marking the jolly oc- !
casion when the reading of the i
Pentateuch is at the same time :
ended and begun again.
The youngsters play an im-
portant part in this procession.

wJemsti Flloiridliai m CoMB,m^ irihte JtBwHslh HJmuty VOLUME 13—No. 42 MIAMI, FLORIDA. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1940 PRICE 10 CENTS k TO CONSIDER JEWISH BILL Sofia, Bulgaria (WNS)—A farreaching decree, drastically curbing the political and economic nghts of Bulgaria's 50,000 Jews w jH be introduced in Parliament on October 28, it was disclosed. Described by its sponsor, Petar Gabrovskl, Minister of the Inter! r as a law for the protection of the nation, the decree has been accepted by the Cabinet and now awaits final passage by Parliament The section of the decree which deals with Jews defines all tho c e whose fathers were Jewish as Jews. It stipulates that Jews cannot occupy State, municipal or public positions, and cannot own rural lands. The law would prohibit Jews from participating in the theatre and cinema. If the bill is passed, Jews will be permitted to practice their professions only in proportion to the Jewish minority in their par. ticular locality. The Ministerial Council will determine the percentage of Jews that may parJJy ticipate in commerce, industry or the professions. Another point forbids Jews to employ domestic servants of Bulgarian origin. The present decree marks the first time in the history of Bulgaria that a bill curbing the rights of Jews has been brought up The Jewish population constitutes only seven-tenths of 1 per cent of the total population and hitherto had never been considi red .i problem. Unusual interest has been I in the bill, virtually a copy of other bills restituted in Yugoslavia lumania at the insistence of Nazi Germany. Jewish circles here are convinced that the alleged "Jewish question" was manufactured in Berlin. Ni it ml quarters believed that the bill would evoke a storm of controversy m Parliament since is have noted few manins of anti Semitism among the people. A large mathe Jews are small trad1 %  • and for the most part very poor. A check-up disclosed that at t there are no Jews in the Bulgarian Army. There are no J holding State positions. Meanwhile. Bulgarian Jews look forward with apprehension to the forthcoming debate. Passage of tiie bill would mean another diplomatic triumph for Nazi Germany and another blow at European Jewry. WERFEL ARRIVES IN U. S. FROM NAZI FRANCE New York (WNS)—Franz Werfel. celebrated author of "The Forty Days of Musa Dagh," and Heinrich Mann, writer and brother of Thomas Mann, were among the 15 prominent German writers who arrived in the United States from Lisbon aboard the Greek liner Nea Hellas. All of the German of letters, Jews and Gentiles, had to be | sneaked out of France by underground railway methods since they were all wanted by the jNazi Gestapo. In the group was JAngelus Gottfried Mann, son of I the Nobel prize winner. Mr. Werfel was reluctant to describe his escape from France, telling reporters: "I can't speak. The most of us are still in France. My friends are all in concentration camps." The writers were met at the pier by Dr. Frank Kingdon. chairman of the Emergency Rescue Committee, which helped effect their escape. Dr. Kingdon said that so many important antiNazi writers had been able to escape because the Gestapo had not had time to comb southern France Thoroughly. PLAN NAT'L UNITY DRIVE New York (WNS)—One hundred prominent Protestants, Catholics and Jews, leaders in the fields of business, labor, religion and education met at the Harvard Club to lay plans for the Mobilization for National Unity membership drive to be conducted in the New York area by the National Conference of Christians and Jews. Basil O'Connor, chairman of the Mobilization, presided. The Mobilization for National Unity aims to arouse New Yorkers against the activities of individuals and groups promoting hatred or racial and religious elements, and to create national unity by encouraging friendship and cooperation among all racial and religious groups and to strengthen their common allegiance to the spirit of America. Mr. O'Connor described the drive as being "of vital importance to the safety of this nation." GRAND JURY INDICTS EIGHT G.-A. BUNDISTS Newton, N. J. (WNS)—Eight members of the German-American Bund, including G. Wilhelm Kunze, the national fuehrer since the imprisonment of Fritz Kuhn, were indicted by the Sussex County grand jury for violation of the 1935 New Jersey statutes, which prohibit the incitation of racial or religious hatred by persons making speeches or permitting such speeches to be made. The arraignment of the eight bundists was scheduled for Oct. 18. The maximum penalty on conviction is three years in prison and a $5,000 fine. The indictments were the result of an investigation of activities at Camp Nordland, local Nazi camp. Separate indictments were returned against August Klapprott, eastern district leader of the bund and manager of Camp Nordland; Matthias Kohler, New Jersey treasurer of the bund; i Leonard D. Clark, a writer for Nazi newspapers, and Wilbur V. JKeegan, New Jersey attorney for the Nazi group. These four were accused of making speeches "pro'moting hatred and hostility." SUKKOTH, THE SEASON OF GLADNESS by DAVID H. PANTZ Tishre is a month of holidays. It begins with the ten days of repentance, which include Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. and ushers in. on the fifteenth day of the month, Sukkoth. the Feast of Tabernacles. The former is a period of profound seriousness, when the contrite heart and the repentant soul evaluate mans moral responsibilities The latter, by contrast, is a season of joy. VOTE YOUR DUTY • DO IT WITH BALLOTS —NOT BULLETS From its very inception Sukkoth has been characterized by its joyous nature. In ancient days, when the Israelites tilled the soil of their own land, they celebrated the end of the harvest season by the Chag ha-Asif. the Festival of Ingathering, which is another name for Sukkoth. They rejoiced in the reaping of the year's toil, and thanked God for the abundance stored in barn and bin, while praying that He send new rains for the coming year. They expressed their joy by a profusion of offerings to the bounteous Giver of the harvest. As one of the three Pilgrimage festivals. Sukkoth had the same official status as Passover and Shabuoth In reality, however, it was assumed a much greater importance in the life of the people than did the other two holidays, and was, in fact, referred to as "the Festival." It is easy to understand why such prominence should have been accorded this holiday. While every male was enjoined to make the prescribed pilgrimage to a sanctuary on each of the three agricultural festivals, it was difficult for the Jewish peasant to leave his village during Passover and Shabuoth, since these were the seasons for cutting and threshing the grain. On Sukkoth. however, when the crops had been gathered from the fields, he could rejoice with a clear conscience. Thus it was that so many people were able to visit the Sanctuary on this occasion. The trails of Palestine rseounded with the songs of the festive pilgrims and their families. None could resist the temptation to take an active part in so joyous an event. The Temple became the symbol of unity, and on Sukkoth. as well as on Passover, every part of the inhabited world poured forth its Jews, who ascended, renown join in the torch dances, on. From near and far, on foot or in chariot, on donkey and on camel, the roads were black with pilgrims who traveled in ecstasy to share in the Temple services. They sang and shouted, and sent forth triumphant blasts from their pipes whenever they met still another caravan of Jews at the converging points of the road. The irrepressible mirth of the masses was louder by far than the usually dominant animal calls. But silence now, for already visible is the Temple, the goal of their journey. They are awestricken, but their hearts are singing in anticipation of the beautiful ceremony they will witness in the Temple. The procession of priests, lulav and ethrog in hand, marches around the i Altar to the sound of the Shofar, 'while they chant, "Save now, I beseech Thee. O Lord; O Lord. I beseech Thee, send now prosperity." (Ps. 118:25.) As the flower awaits the sun. ;so the people await the ceremony of the drawing of the waI ter. "He that hath not beheld the joy of the Drawing of Water 'hath never seen joy in his life." The spirit of joviality is so prevalent that even men of piety and renown oin in the torch dances. %  while the people carol hymns and songs to the accompaniment of flutes, harps and cymbals. According to the calendar. Sukkoth begins on the fifteenth day of Tishre, but its observances are begun on the very evening that Yom Kippur terminates Only a few hours after the long day spent m fasting and penitential prayer, Jews hasten to drive the first nail into the Sukkah or booth. Not very much work is involved in the building of this little edifice which, by its very nature, is hastily-constructed and insubstantial. This character is preserved because of the historical association with the Divine protection during the forty years of desert wandering, and also because of a religious connotation, epitomized by Maimonides. He said that "man ought to remember his evil days in his days of prosperity. He will thereby be induced to thank God repeatedly, to lead a modest and humble life. We. therefore, on Tabernacles, leave our houses, in order to dwell in DEPRIVED OF CITIZENSHIP Vichy, France (WNS)—French j Jewry was struck a staggering blow when the semi-Fascist regime of Marshal Petain repealed the 1870 'Chemieux Law, which gave native Jews in Algeria the same civil and political rights as Frenchmen. Abrogation of the Cremieux Law, one of the first acts of the Third Republic, deprived approximately 60,000 Algerian Jews of their citizenship and relegated them to the position of second-class citizens. Henceforth, Algerian Jews will not be permitted to vote or to hold public office. Their civil rights and duties, including marriage and divorce, will be governed by French laws. The Government announced that special exemptions would be granted to Jews who fought | with the French forces in the World War and during the 19:il>40 campaign and received the Legion of Honor decoration fo* military cause or the Croix de Guerre. Exemptions will be granted also to Algerian Jews who have rendered special services to the nation. The Cremieux Law conferred citizenship on all Jews in Algeria. As a result of the government's announcement, Jewish | lawyers, doctors and college professors of Algerian origin will lose their posts unless they receive exemptions. It was estimated that at least 15.000 Algerian Jews are now in France, An Algerian Jew, wishing to remain in France, must apply for a p. rnut in the same manner that a foreigner must apply for permission to stay.

Previous anti-Jewish demonstrations in Algeria resulted in the smashing of windows of Jewish-owned shops and in injuries to scores of Jews. MAGAZINE LAUDS J. D.

OCTOBER 18. 1940 TRAGEDY OF THE RUMANIAN JEWS The occupation of Rumania by Nazi military units—under the pretext of "protecting" the borders and the oil wells of the country—deepens the tragedy of Rumanian Jewry. It is sufficient to see what has happened to the Jews in the "protected" territory of Bohemia-Moravia in order to visualize as to what is in store for the Jews of the "protected" Rumania. Precarious as the situation of Rumanian Jewry became during the last weeks as result of the Iron Guard ascension to power, it is to be expected that their lot will become much worse now that Nazi soldiers and officers are pouring into Rumania by the thousands, and the Gestapo has officially established itself in every Rumanian city. Nominally an independent country whose independence is guaranteed by the Axis powers under the Vienna agreement. Rumania is actually becoming nothing more than a new protectorate of Nazi-Germany. There will be little difference now between the status of Bucharest and that of Prague. But while the Rumanians may soon awake to realization of the fact that they are in no better position than the Czechs, it is not likely that they will follow the Czech policy of disapproval of the antiJewish measures, which the Nazis will certainly intensify in Rumania. On the contrary, as far as anti-Jewish action is concerned, the Nazi occupants in Rumania are well aware of the fact that in this particular field they will find the full support of the Iron Guard Government, which is as anti-Semitic as Hitler and Streicher. It is. thereforee, no surprise that Jews in Rumania are now trying to get out of the country while this is still possible. Whoever can tries to find his way to Greece and to Turkey, where Jews are still considered human beings and treated as such. But how long will it be before Greece and Turkey become the target of Hitler? What will the trapped Rumanian Jews do then? HITLER WILL PUNISH DR. S. S. WISE NAZI RADIO SAYS London (WNS)—The efforts of Dr. Stephen S. Wise to rally American opinion behind Great Britain in its war on Nazi Germany have been personally noted by der fuehrer and the New York rabbi may expect a day of reckoning, the Nazi radio has warned. Dr. Wise is one of the outstanding foes of Nazism. JEWS IN OCCUPIED FRANCE TO CENCENTRATION CAMPS London (WNS)—The possibility that Jews in Nazi-occupied France would be rounded up and sent off to concentration camps was strongly hinted by L'Oeuvre, a French newspaper published in the occupied zone. The paper said that Nazi officials in the occupied area considered Jews in their portion of France to be "a real danger." An interior view of the recently erected Temple serving the Jewry of Fort Lauderdale IPLfllN TALK | THE GENTILE PROBLEM By Al •#•! A citizen says I should be sure to read "The Gentile Problem" in the August number of the Christian Century. I haven't gotten around to it yet but 1 like the tile of the piece and have appropriated it for this week's column. We hear so much said about the Jewish problem—we ourselves do much of the talking on the subject—that it is a relief to take up the Gentile problem. I am really sick and tired of being a problem. Of course, there is no Gentile problem any more than there is in reality a special Jewish problem. Yet it is as easy to invent the Gentile problem as it was to invent the Jewish problem. I shall invent it. I shall walk down the street, and whom do I see? He is the Gentile John Q' Zilch. I don t know Zilch but recently I read about him. He is the one who swindled a lot of people in that stock deal. "Do you know who that is?" I ask my wife who is with me. "That's Zilch the Gentile." "Those Gentiles again." she sighs. "Yes. the time will come when we'll have to do something about Gentiles." I observe. "The way they swindle people." My wife recalls some Gentiles she has read about m the paper. "There was that awful pickpocket they caught in the street car yesterday. He had a Gentile name." Her niece's cousin once heard of a Gentile who put over something in a real estate deal. "Gentiles." she says, "certainly do like money and know how to get it. There's that Henry Ford. Thev say he has a billion dollars. And that Rockefeller! He has his hands in everything. Do you know, he runs all the oil wells. He thinks he is the foundation of everything—the Rickefeller Foundation. He controls disease and everything." Then, as I point out. the Gentiles seem to hold the best public offices and they are in all the banks and have the best houses in town and drive some of the best cars "You can scarcely go anywhere without having" a Gentile to deal with." My wife whispers: "And do you know what? Gentiles are international bankers—like Morgan." "Yes." I reply, "and they arc communists too. (That Browder is a Gentile "My mother's brother's sisterin-law told me about their being international bankers. She read it somewhere." We come to the Empire State Tower. I point up to its graceful height "And who do you think owns that building? Gentiles, of course. And who made the steel that's in it? Gentiles." "Yes." she says, "and we have only a jalopy but these Gentiles have all these swell cars." Well, it is easy as that to invent a Gentile problem—as simple as it was to make the Jewish problem. You pick out a few Gentiles you dnn't like—some bad samples and some rich ones —and say. "Yes. there are Genfor you. We'll certainly have to do something about Gentiles, considering the kind of people they are" It isn't even necessary to know any Gentiles in order to make a problem out of them. In fact, you can feed your prejudices more successfully if you don't know any of a group of people you despise. If ou knew Gentiles you would discover that most of the more decent people and that discovery might be fatal to your prejudice. For the successful invention of a Gentile problem one shouldn't bother with the truth about Gentiles. After you have worked up a distaste for some Gentiles nothing any Gentile does will please you. Your aunt tells you what she heard about Gentiles from your cousin to whom it came from her sister-in-law who had it from her brother-in-law's niece, and you pass it all assiduously along and pretty soon (CONTINUED FROM PAOE 4) Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHTNEAS J.

If the latter was the case, we are glad to apologize to the Senator. • ESCAPE ARTIST Last week we had a private chat with Lion Feuchtwanger, the reports of whose death, you jmay remember, we never did believe Feuchtwanger told us about the impossible situation he was in even before he landed in a concentration camp in France When he went to a public cafe the authorities told him that foreigners should have enough tact not to exhibit themselves When he kept away they sent policemen to tell him that foreigners should have enough tact not to snub French ( life. and should mix freely with Frenchmen Incidentally. Feuchtwanger finished the third volume of his Josephus trilogy, and managed to send the manuscript of it from France to the United States, directly to Chief Librarian MacLeish of the Library of Congress ... His next book will be a novel with Queen .Esther as its heroine The story of his thrilling escape from INasioccupied France will shortly be syndicated in a serial that will appear In newspapers throughout the country. e LISTEN HERE Exemption of married men from military service isn't a modern development, you may want to know One of the statutes promulgated by Moses and recorded in the Book of Deuteronomy reads: "When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war but he shall be free at home one year Radio City has its own synagogue during the high holy days ...

We wonder whether the Warner Brothers Disraeli film, now being made in England in the midst of the blitzkreig. will include the incident of Beaconsfield telling off Bismarck You remember that, in reply to a remark of the Iron Chancellor's about the Dis raeli ancestry, the great English Jewish statesman replied: "When your ancestors were roaming the forests wrapped in boar skins my forefathers were writing the | Bible" Sidney Lumet. a Max Reinhardt discovery in "The \ Eternal Road" a few seasons ago. is getting excellent notices on his portrayal of the young Jesus in Maxwell Anderson's "Journey | Ito Jerusalem" Incidentally.

FRIDAY. OCTOBER 18, 1940 PLAIN TALK (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4) you may have an Anti-Gentile movement to solve the Gentile problem. People who can't understand what's troubling the world will gay, "Yes, that's what's the mattor, the Gentiles. My mother's cousm's husband's aunt's niece told me something about some Gentiles." Thus, in time, you may even become a fuehrer. People will say. "Yes, that man knows what he if talking about." Everyone will remember a Gentile whom he heard about—some Gentile who beat up his wife, or some Gentile who skinned the landlord out of the rent, or some Gentile who was a banker .... "That man sure has the dope." and SO thousands will come to follow you wherever you may lead them. Happily, none of this van ever happen to Gentiles who, being in a majority, never will be picked on.

Zwitman: This week's front page news which announced the arrival of Franz Werfel as a refugee from Nazified France, is significant, for both of his major plays on the Jewish theme deal with communities seeking refuge. Especially in "The Eternal Road'' Werfel portrays with dignity the role of the eternal wanderer personified by Israel's trek through the ages. The fact that newspaper reporters tell us that Mr. Werfel refused to speak or to give out any statements on the present plight of suffering refugees, should not hinder us from remembering that Mr Werfel has said much and said it well in his drama "The Eternal Road.'' true medium of the expression of his soul. The end of the play breaks with a crescendo: Ye sorrowers, no judgment by mortals wrought Can blot out or bring Israel to naught God's eternal promise and covenants are Immortal beyond ev'n His sun or His star. Be grateful for sorrow, your sorrow's cause In divine strength rooted still upward draws Be grateful for fire burning dross, forcing you With the love of your God the world to pierce through.

I meet you Wanderer, set free from all harm, Into the kingdom of my strong arm FEDERATION NOTES by ISAAC JOFTE Executive Director One of the most interesting Budget Committee meetings of the series was held on Monday evening, October 14, at which time deliberation was had on all of the local agencies and causes supported partly or wholly by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. It was announced, on behalf of the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami that, after a number of meetings, a single group has been organized, composed of all of the local Rabbis and others interested in the cause of Jewish education, and that the first step has been taken to unify the system of education of the Jewish youth of Greater Miami, which includes Miami Beach. It is hoped in the near future to form a Central Bureau of Jewish Education, patterned along the lines of similar organizations in many of the larger cities in the country. Needless to say, this announcement was greeted with enthusiastic response by those attending the meeting, and the committee voted unanimously to rec ommend to the board of directors that one lump sum of a substantial amount be allocated to a responsible selected committee, to be distributed by them equitably to the several existing schools, and in addition another sum shall be earmarked as a reserve fund to be used for the advancement and creation of the Bureau of Jewish Education and. ultimately, it is hoped, for the erection of a United Hebrew School. Federation wishes the movement God speed, and trusts this is the beginning of a unification of efforts on behalf of other local needs. Also taken up at the meeting were allocations for the coming year, for the Y. M. H. A.. Miami Refugee Committee, which includes Miami Section of the National Council of Jewish Women, and the Miami Chapter of Hadassah. On Tuesday evening, October 22, the combined session of the executive and budget committees will be in the form of a dinner meeting, to be addressed by Mr. Henry Montor of New York City, executive vice chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, which consists of the Joint Distribution Committee, United Palestine Appeal and National Refugee Service. He is expected to bring a message of vital importance in connection with the overseas and refugee situation. For the Finest in STRICTLY KOSHER Meats & Poultry PHONE 2-4994 MALEK'S 1832 8 W.

We shall remember that this was once our condition." Indeed for the duration of this holiday, many Jews will almost literally live in these flimsy booths. Study and conversation, eating and. for some, even sleeping will take place in the Sukkah, if the weather permits; for such is the Law. The women will light the candles here before the evening meal, and will join the men in the Grace after the meal. And all will want to enter the Sukkah in the morning to recite blessings over the lulav and ethrog. In general, everyone, especially the children, will take the opportunity to enjoy the happy atmosphere of the temporary building.. The actual construction of the Sukkah is itself an occasion for merriment. From the night after Yom Kippur until the beginning of the holiday proper, four days later, every member of the family will insist that he or she be given an equal share in the building and decoration of the booth. The men will put up the walls and cover the roof sparsely with pine branches or with narrow laths. The women will adorn .he walls with white sheets and pictures and other decorations, and the children will hang fruits and Dowers from roof and crossocam. Apples and pears and grapes and plums will form a rainbow-hued medley against the background of the clean, white drapes. Song and good cheer will be the dominant note. For seven days the good season of joy will last. The eighth day is one oi solemn as; imbly. called. in Hebrew, Shcmini Azeret. This is a festival dedicated to the prayer for rain because, in Palestine, it marks the beginning of the rainy season. Like Sukkoth, Shcmini Azeret is also an occasion for' joy in the certainty that God will srant the people's prayer. OutJide of Palestine, the whole fesj tival season culminates in the happiest day of all. Simchas Torah. On the evening of this day. after the services and the verse* by-verse recitation of the Atari Haretah, the Torah procession will take place. The scrolls will be taken out of the Ark and carried around the Synagogue seven times, marking the jolly oc! casion when the reading of the i Pentateuch is at the same time : ended and begun again. The youngsters play an important part in this procession. Every child carries a Jewish flag I and marches behind his elders, who carry the Torah scrolls.

CARTER ANSWER TO THE ADVOCATES OF A TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT FOR AMERICA. Tallahassee. Florida. Mr. Hitler Attention: Subordinates In charge Lindbergh for President Club No. I P. O. Boi S Pals Alto. California. Replying to your circular letter •f August. 1940. soliciting my support. I beg to advise THAT: Prior to the Hoover depression, 1 thought I was making moneybuying and selling real estate, operating on a margin—negotiate Ing the resale of the property Immediately. When the Hoover depression got through with me, all 1 had left w as one wife—seven boys—a hound dog and several deficiency judgments against me; a home that waa saved (or ma by the Florida Homestead Law, heavily mortgaged, In a dilapidated condition, and the roof leaking so badly we had to move out doors when It rained to keep from getting wet. We were discouraged from repairing the property for the mortgage holder who collected eight percent annually. And he was threatening foreclosure and would have done so probably had It not been for the vast repairs necessary before the property could have been rented. The State and National Banks were going through the annual process of closing their doors and wiping out depositors with such regularity that (although I was not naive enough to deposit any appreciable sum of money In any of these financial quick-sand Institutions) I took the precaution to buy a cashiers check to remit collections I had made as agent for others and the dern thing closed while the check was In transit and I came near being Indicted as an embezzler before I could raise sufficient ftinrls to make the cashiers check good. I called on My Brother and Mother and found out their banks had Just gone through the annual closing process also and that they were helpless to help themselves, let alone help me. Fortunately for me, Mr. Roosevelt was elected about the time It looked as though I was hopelessly involved and gave us the guarantee bank deposit system and a Home Owner's Loan Corporation and did not only take up the mortgage for me at five and one-half percent, but furnished me with a sufficient amount to put the home in good repair and allowed me to pay back the principal and the Interest at a rate about equal to what I had been Paying as Interest alone before. The beneficial results that I personally experienced from these two acts alone of Mr. Roosevelt's Administration entitle* him to my support, even If he never accomplished anything else for ordinary people like myself. However. I am sure a well posted person could enumerate pages of acts that have been beneficial and a God-send to the masses of the people who had never received any serious consHeratlon by any Administration prlar to Mr Roosevelt's. To my knowledge he Is the only person elevated Btates who had enough courage, back bone and Intestinal fortitude of the non-skid and knobby-treadtype to take the banks out of tba control of the speculators, gamblers and wildcatters and set up a Home Owner's Loan Corporation and other similar Institutions that Jerked a knot In the tail of the shylocks and loan sharks, often referred to as economic royalists, who have for a century been bleeding the masses of the people white by exacting usurious rates of Interest and excess profits. President Roosevelt recognizing the fset that we can today take less than forty percent of the entire population. In conjunction with the modern labor saving machines, systems and devices and manufacture and create and distribute more of all the necessities and luxuries of life than the whole one hundred percent could use If they all had bank accounts and could buy what they wanted. Inaugurated the WPA for the purpose of giving employment to those whom labor saving machines and devices have displaced and enabled them to at least live instead of starve. Through this and many ether methods, he has taken the raassaa of the people out from under the ruthless domination of the parasitical royalist of this Country, who hate Mr. Roosevelt for breaking up their profitable racket and are today opposing him on every band In my opinion, the masses of the people should love Mr. Roosevelt for the enemies ho has made. As to your circular letter, couch ed in the most seductive language, astutely advocating Mr. Hitler's world revolution: I am not in favor of abandoning our Free Democracy and substituting any such government as Mr. Hitler or Stalin nan brought to the people of Europo and Asia. As for the candidacy for Mr. Charles Lindbergh, for the purpose of carrying out your program. It does not appeal to me at all. Ho, like Mr. A. daffy Hitler, has al ways been a lone wolf and the only thing that he ever accomplished worthy of consideration was flying the St. Louis across the Atlantic. This was a one man operation and from what I can ascertain, he Is a Hitlerite by nature and has demonstrated it so thoroughly that Mr. Hitler decorated him with an iron cross. As far as I am concerned, he has my permission to return to the land from whence his Father came, whose pro-German sentiment and activities during the last world war caused hlra to be Investigated and with difficulty avoided being put In a detention camp. If such an organization as yours Is successful In misleading sufficient American people to defeat Mr. Roosevelt, with a candidate favored by totalitarlans or economic royalists, then I can only say to the American people what a little boy said after an unsuccessful attempt to head off a very young calf that had deserted its mother and took off after a bull that was rushing pell mell across the woods; exhausted, he sat down on a log and said "go It damn you. you will learn the difference when sucking time cemes." I am NOT for Mr. Lindbergh. I AM for Mr. Roosevelt Very truly yours. JERRY W. CARTER. >~ ) !>

There is no charge for such service. Just another Y project. EMPLOYMENT SERVICE Many requests are being received by the Y daily for positions by employers.

Berman, our vocational guidance director, requests all those who desire a position to communicate with Mr. Grossman at the Y. An appointment will be made when such applicant will be interviewed by Mr. Berman. Employers and business men desiring clerical and other help, please communicate with the Y.

We can really make it enjoyable by having plenty of new membership applications for him upon his return which should be in a week or two : : Get out and get those members in the spirit of the holidays and the New Year ... It is just as important for us to enroll every Jewish man over 21 years as it is to register under the new conscription law. • • • My call last week for dues from members who are delinquent did not have much effect. Please cooperate with me and your organization by paying your delinquent dues. •. • • Brother Max Goldstein expects to arrange for another golf tournament at the end of this month.
