OF JEWISH-ARAB
IS FORMED
Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agen-
cy)Because of the overwhelm-
ing success that met the first call
issued by the government in the
middle of September for recruits
for the all-Jewish and all-Arab
infantry companies to form part
of the Royal East Kent Regi-
ment, known as the Buffs, the
authorities announced their de-
cision to accept enlistments of
an additional 200 Jews and 200
Arabs in these companies.
When these new enlistments
have been completed a full all-
Palestinian battalion, composed
of separate Jewish and Arab un-
its, will have been created spe-
cifically for the defense of the
Holy Land and its immediate en-
virons.
Great enthusiasm greeted the
announcement here, and it is an-
ticipated that the present quota
will be as quickly oversubscribed
as was the first one. All sections
of the Jewish population are sol-
idly behind the recruiting of all-
Jewish units for the defense of
Eretz Israel Permission to form
these Jewish companies came as
a climax of a campaign conduct-
ed by the Jewish Agency for Pal-
estine since the beginning of the
war for the establishment of
armed Jewish units which could
participate in the struggle along-
side other Empire forces, but as
specific representatives of the
Yishuv.
To date more than 5.000 young
Jewish men, including the 400
thus far permitted to form all-
Jewish units, have joined the
'British armed forces. But it is
the formation of the Jewish un-
ls that has met with the most
enthusiastic response and with
the unqualified approval of all
sections of the Yishuv.
ORGANIZE UKRAINIANS
FOR JEWISH OUTRAGES
London (WNS)Nazi agents
have formed an organization of
5.000 anti-Semitic Ukrainians for
the sole purpose of plundering
and beating Jews in Galicia, ac-
cording to a report from War.
saw.
The anti-Semitic organization,
which has the unofficial support
of the Nazi government in Pol-
and, is responsible for many out-
rages, including the plundering
of Jewish homes and stores, and !
criminal assaults against Jewish
women. The report stated that
Galician Jews are frequently sub-
jected to merciless beatings.

NAZI OPPOSITION
STILL INCREASING
London (WNS)Strong detach-
ments of Dutch and German po-
lice patrolled the streets as 5.-
000 blackshirted Nazis paraded
through the Jewish quarter of
Amsterdam, shouting, '"The
Streets Belong To Us," it was re-
ported here.
Anti-Nazi circles in Holland
expressed satisfaction that only
5.000 persons participated in the
Nazi demonstration despite the
fact that Nazi Commissioner Dr.
Arthur Seyes-Inquart had offi-
cially endorsed the parade.
Responding to appeals from the
mayor of the Dutch capital, the
people remained calm during the
parade. Growing opposition to
the Netherland Nazi party had
led to bloody street clashes over
the week-end.
At least 30 members of the
Netherlands Union party, winch
maintains that it is willing to
cooperate with Germany but in-
sists on spiritual independence
and is strongly opposed to the
Nazi-inspired anti-Jewisn laws,
were arrested following fights
with Nazis.
The fight against anti-Semitism
was sparked by hundreds of Pro-
testant clergymen who publicly
announced
anti-Jewish regulations. Esti-
mates place the membership of
the Netherland Union Party at
500,000, and the Nazi party at
50,000.
OF
GREECE APPEALS
TO 0. S. FOR HELP
Salonika (WNS)The Grand
Rabbi of Salonika announced that
he had cabled an appeal to Dr.
Stephen S. Wise, president of the
American Jewish Congress, to
circulate a protest to 'the chiefs
of the various churches in the
United States" against the Italian
bombing of Greek civilians.
More than 20 persons were
killed and at least 50 wounded
when Italian bombers dropper in-
cendiary bombs on a predomin-
antly Jewish district in this city.
New York (WNS)Dr. Steph-
en S. Wise announced that he
would present the protest against
indiscriminate bombing of civ-
ilians by Italian raiders which he
received from the Grand Rabbi
of Salonika to the American
Jewish Congress, which would
take "whatever measures are
deemed necessary."
22 JEWS VICTIMS OF
HIT BY NAZI BOMBER
London (WNS) Twenty-two
Jews were buried under tons of
debris when a Nazi bomber
scored a direct hit on an apart-
ment building in the East End
quarter of London. Emergency
rescue crews were able to save
some of the victims.
The London county council op-
ened five emergency soup kitch-
ens in the East End district to
feed the victims of the latest
Nazi air raids. Arrangements
have been made to provide
homes for Jewish women, chil-
dren and the aged.
S END OE
PALESTINE RULE

Selected to head Sholem Lodge
B'nai B'rith's more than one
thousand members as president
was Abe Aronovitz, who was
honored by the membership re-
ceiving the nomination unani-
mously. Other officers chosen for
the ensuing year without opposi-
tion at the nomination meeting
held last week include: Burnett
Roth, first vice president; Louis
Heiman, recording secretary;
Harold Turk, financial secretary;
Walter Kovner. treasurer; J. Ar-
on Abbott, monitor; James Leon-
ard, warden; Fred Shochet, guar-
dian; Albert Berkeley, trustee
for three years. Contested of-
fices include second vice presi-

olution was introduced at the
meeting, with Leo Eisenstein,
Milton Friedman and A. Louis

trusteeships for one year with
Isadore Zukernick, Dr. Elias
Freidus, E. Albert Pallot and Carl
Weinkle as the candidates. The
election will take place next
month. Holdover trustees are R.
JEWS HARD HIT BY
Ei
Jerusalem (WNS) Stressing
the need for unity during the
present war crisis. Pinchas Rut-
enberg. former president of the
Vaad Leumi (Jewish National
Council), urged the end of party-
rule in Palestine and the crea-
tion of a small, authoritative
Jewish body to govern the Pales-
tine Jewish community.
Severely criticizing the Hista-
druth (Palestine Jewish labor
federation) for its alleged failure
to achieve unity. Mr. Rutenberg
demanded a ban on labor strikes
for the duration of the war. He
termed the forthcoming elections
for the Palestine Jewish assem-
bly as "expensive and absurd."
"There is no order and discip-
line in the Yishuv." he main-
tained. "The Jewish Agency and
Vaad Leumi executives do not
possess adequate prestige. Money
is still everybody's principal wor-
ry. The Yishuv's demoralization
is growing daily." He demand-
ed also a reorganization of Pales-
tine's social welfare activities.
Unity is the need of the Yishuv
in the present grave hour and
that can be achieved through the
elimination of party rule, accord-
ing to Pinchas Rutenberg, head
of the Palestine Electric Corpor-
ation, who resigned as president I
of the Vaad Leumi on September
1st.
Bucharest (WNS)The Jews of
Rumania, economically strangled
by the government's anti-Jewish
legislation, were severely hit by
the earthquakes which rocked
the country over last week-encL
A check-up disclosed that the
Jewish communities in nine cit-
ies, including Bucharest, were
badly damaged by the quakes.
The Jewish districts of Galati,
Focsani. Bacu, Ploesti and Cam-
pina were reported to be in
ruins.
The government issued an ap-
peal to the various Jewish com-
munities to mobilize all available?
doctors, nurses and engineers to
aid in the rescue work. Recent
regulations, forbidding Jewish
doctors and engineers to practic?,
were temporarily suspended.
A special Jewish relief commit-
tee was organized in Bucharest
to help the victims of the catas-
trophe. Three emergency soup
kitchens were opened in the Jew-
ish quarter.
Meanwhile, many orthodox Ru-
manian Gentiles clung to the be-
lief that the most destructive
earthquake in the history of Ru-
mania was a sign of God's dis-
pleasure at the treatment of the
Jews. Nazi troops and Iron
Guardists, sent to the damaged
districts to aid in the rescue-
work, were reported to have been
treated coldly.
USE SCHOOLS WITH
AIR RAID SHELTERS
Tel Aviv (Palcor Agency)
Only such schools as are provid-
ed with air raid shelters were
opened when the school children
of this all-Jewish city resumed
their academic studies at the be-
ginning of October after a sum-
mer holiday that had been ex-
tended from the usual two

SINCE GUARD'S DEATH

Jews fear further anti-Jewish de- j R Adler and Mathew Bandlcr.
crees and reprisals following the
mysterious assassination of Nita
Ghirica. prominent leader of the
Iron Guard, violently anti-Semi-
tic, pro-Nazi organization.
The official newspaper of the
anti-Semitic organization charged
that the Iron Guard leader was
shot in the back by a group of
"Jews and unemployed Commun-
ists" who tried to organize dem-
onstrations in the Bucharest pub-
lic market.
The newspaper added that "the
agents who stirred up the riot"
had been arrested and that mili-
itary authorities are investigating.
At the meeting of the Ladies
Auxiliary held in conjunction,
the following officers were nom-
inated and unanimously elected:
Mrs. Jennie Rotfort, president;
Mrs. J. A. Berman, first vice
president; Mrs. Maurice Gross-
man, second vice president; Miss
Beulah Godwin, recording secre-
tary; Mrs. Jimmie Leonard, fin-
ancial secretary; Mrs. S. Silver,
corresponding secretary; Mrs.
Louis Heiman. treasurer; Mrs.
Isaac Levin, monitor. Mrs. Jennie
Rotfort presided in the absence
of Mrs. Isaac Levin. The direc-
tors will be elected in December.
8 JEWS TO CONGRESS;
KOPPLEMAN ELECTED
Washington (WNS)When the
next Congress convenes in Jan-
uary, eight Jewish congressmen
will take their places among the
nation's lawmakers. Six of the
Jews, including four congressmen
from New York, were re-elected.
Herman P. Koppelman of Con-
necticut, who was defeated in
the 1938 elections, regained his
scat in the house in last Tues-
day's election. Samuel A. Weiss
was sent to congress from Penn-
sylvania.
The other six, all re-elected,
were: Adolph J. Sabath of Illi-
nois, chairman of the house rules
committee; Emanuel Celler, Sam-
uel Dickstein, M. M. Edelstein,
and Sol Bloom, all from New
York, and Leon Sacks, of Penn-
sylvania.
ty considerations.
Originally the schools, which
had closed almost a half month
early, were scheduled to re-open
in the middle of September. But
the air raids conducted against
this open city by Italian bombers
on September 9th made it nes-
essary to provide temporary air
raid precautions facilities in the
schools instead.
MANY LOANS MADE
IN EIGHT MONTHS
Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)
During the first eight months of
1940 over 100.00 pounds sterling
were loaned to the Yishuv's ag-
ricultural settlements to help ex-
pand their farming capacity by
Nir, Ltd., the agricultural finan-
cing and contracting company of
the Histadruth (General Jewish
Federation of Labor).
Outstanding loans at the end of
1939 totalled 243,000 pounds ster-
ling.

FEDERATION NOTES
by ISAAC JOFFE
Excutire Director
The budget committee has
completed its deliberations and
is prepared, through its chair-
man. Mr. Max Orovitz, to report
the result of its efforts at the
meeting of the board of direct-
ors to be held at Hotel McAllis-
ter on Sunday evening, Novem-
ber 17. It is hoped that there
will be a full attendance, to en-
able the campaign committee to
gel off to a good start in rais-
ing the amount which will be set
by the board as the campaign
goal for 1941.
Incidentally your director re-
cords with satisfaction that at the
week-end conference on budget-
ing nf welfare funds, held at At-
lanta Georgia, on November 9
and 10, presided over by Mr.
Stanley C. Myers, and attended
by key representatives from all
southeastern cities, including
Messrs. Baron de Hirsch Meyer,
Max Orovitz, and Isaac Joffe
(rum Miami, the process of bud-
geting employed by the Miami
Federation was approved as the
most satisfactory of all methods.
It was particularly pointed out
that the procedure of inviting
representatives of beneficiary
agencies to appear ana state their
case before the budget commit-
te was in keeping with the finest
democratic spirit.
On Friday evening. November
22, 1941 theCampai n wi I be of-
pen d with a Fed ration

Washington (WNS)Sir Nor-
man Angell. Nobel peace prize
winner and prominent British
writer, predicted that Great Brit-
ain would soon accept the offer
of the Jewish Agency for Pales-
line to raise an army of 100.000
Jews for the defense of the Holy
Land, before 500 delegates to the
United Palestine Appeal confer-
ence.
"The British and Jewish peo-
ples." Sir Norman said, "now
share the honor of being the two
peoples of all the earth upon
whom Hitler visits his deadliest
enmity."
He described Nazism as the su-
preme enemy of both the British
and Jewish people and said that
if Briiam were defeated there ,
would not be a Jew in all the !
world who would not be in mor- '
tal peril.
Despite the fact that normal
shipping lanes had been blocked
because of the war. Sir Norman
u d that 24.000 Jewish refu-
had entered Palestine dur-
ing the first year of the war
through Sweden. Russia. Greece.
Rumania. Turkey and Syria.
The Jewish Agency established
a special immigration office m
Athens which functioned up to
the time of the Italian invasion.
More than 7,500 Jews are still on
their way to Palestine in a
steady flow which has not been
interrupted by the wars spread
to the Mediterranean.
Emphasizing Palestine's im-
portance as a strategic point in
the British line of supplies. Sir
Norman pointed out that the
Holy Land "has become a vital
bastion in the defense not only
of Britain but of Jews the world
over; and not alone of Jewry but
of all flee men, of human right
everywhere."
"The battle of the British peo-
ple, the battle of Palestine, the
battle of world Jewry, the battle
of the rights of Jews, for the
rights of man. is now all one
battle, one and indivisible."
The conference urged Ameri-
can Jewry to rush all possible
financial assistance to the 500,000
Jews now in Palestine to
strengthen the country's position
as a stronghold in the defense of
Britain in the Mediterranean.

HITLER'S NEW "EXPERIMENT"
The Petain government in France has started the intern-
ment of alien Jews who have been living in France for years.
The interned are kept in concentration camps under most piti-
ful conditions.
At the same time the Nazi government in Berlin has sud-
denly transferred more than 10,000 Jews from Baden and the
Palatinate to the non-occupied part of France. These 10,000
Jews have never resided in France. They have been German
citizens, born and raised in Germany.
It stands to reason that by deporting German Jews into the
non-occupied part of France at a time when the Petain admin-
istration is facing difficulties with feeding its own population,
Hitler is making his first step to expel the Jews from the Eu-
ropean continent. He may not have given instructions to the
Petain government as to what to do with the 10,000 expelled
German Jews, but it is clear that the Petain administration,
which is interning its own aliens, will not be in a position to
absorb new masses of Jews sent in from the Reich. The solu-
tion will be simple: these newcomers will probably be shipped
by the French government from the non-occupied France into
one of the French African colonies. Possibly to Madagascar.
This is the devilish intention lying behind Hitler's deportation
of German Jews into the non-occupied France of all places.
It is another experiment undertaken by the Nazis after they
concluded that the experiment with the "Lublin reservation"
had failed. It shows that while himself unable to "solve" the
Jewish problem. Hitler wishes to use France as a tool to serve
his ambition of "ridding the European continent of Jews" since
the remotest African colonies are still in French possession.

PLAIN TALK
ON BEING DIFFERENT
By JU B#ftl
Dear Mr. Segal: You suggest
in your column that we, as Jews,
drop the idea that we are differ-
ent. You, it seems, would rob
the Jew of his uniqueness which
lies in the fact that he is differ-
ent.
You are one of those timorous
Jews afraid that somebody will
think you are different and set
you aside for that reason. I
consider myself different and am
proud of it. Destroy the differ-
ence and you destroy the Jews.
. For shame, Mr. Segal! .
E. B., Cincinnati.
*
This letter caused Mr. Segal to
look into the mirror and careful-
ly consider himself.
"Am I different?" he asked.
"And in what respect?"
He regarded the profile of his
countenance and observed noth-
ing particularly different in it.
As he goes about he sees faces
as homely as this all over town.
This nose? There ,are plenty
aquiline noses on all the streets.
Mr. Segal was mindful that his
friend. Mr. Doyle, has a nose al-
most like his own.
In fact. Mr. Segal gave his
mind to noses last Rosh Hash-
onah while in the synagogue. He
looked up and down the crowded
pews and observed that most of
the noses were not different from
the common run of noses. If thoy
were not in a synagogue no one
could guess what kind of noses
they were.
Looking into his mirror. Mr.
Segal surveyed his figure. He
saw it was as ungainly as many
another. This abdominal pro-
trusion was a common affliction
of the male species, as Mr. Segal
was pleased to observe as he
went about town. It comforNd
his vanity to know that many
other abdomens were as round
as his.
Physically, mused Mr. Segal, I
am not different. In what o*her
ways may I be different?
Mr. Segal seated himself by
his fire place as he liked to do
when he gives himself to the
thinking process. He had heaid
it said that Jews are different in
the way of life and thoughtas
if there were some soecial es-
sence of virtue in the Jewish be-
ing.
Yes, said Mr. Segal, there is
some compassion in me. I de-
spise bloodshed. I shouldn't
know how to kill even a Nazi.
My heart feels a pain at the
sight of an underprivileged child.
Slums horrify me and I like to
think of ways by which all slum
people could be provided with
white cottages and pretty lawns
with gladioli.
Mr. Segal felt he was endowed
with a social heart, but there
was nothing exclusively Jewish
in thatnothing different. He
knew a multitude of non-Jewish
hearts as glowing as his own.
They, too, abhorred blood-shed
and were troubled about slums
and wept for the underprivileged
child.
On the other hand, Mr. Segal
knew some Jews whose hearts
have no pity. They are, indeed,
like non-Jewish hearts that have
no milk of human kindness in
them either. Selfish, cruel, ra-
pacious hearts. There is no dif-
ference at all between such Jew-
ish hearts and such Gentile
hearts.
No, said Mr. Segal, I am not
different in heart. I have noth-
ing special in my heart, nothing
special of compassion, nothing
unique of cruelty, if I had a
cruel heart.
Mr. Segal could not be per-
suaded that he, a Jew, was dif-
ferent. Yet he had an open
mind on the matter and directed
it to further investigation. Is
my religion different? he asked.
Are my moral concepts differ-
ent?
Mr. Segal couldn't see that his
religion differed in essentials
from other religions that tell us
that all which God requires of a
man is to justly and to love
righteousness and to walk hum-
bly. In the essentials my relig-
ion is no better than these others,
Mr. Segal said; it has no special
favor of God. Its differences
of creed and ceremonial are no
more than the similar differences

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHINEAS J. BIRON)
ECHOES OF THE WAR
It's rats that have brought on the greatest catastrophes in the
history of Europe, says Broadway, referring specifically to the
Bubonic and Teutonic plagues ... So hated is Hitler in England
today that people don't mention his name anymore, but refer
to his as "that man" ... To which the Jews add the potent
curse "Yimach Shimom v'sichrom" Consoling thought:
Since Hitler took Paris in the middle of June his blitzkreig time-
table has broken down badly ... Or have you forgotten that
his schedule called for lunch in Buckingham Palace on August
15th .. You may have thought that Berlin's Chamberlain -
strasse was named after Neville, in recognition of his appease-
ment policy, but the fact is that it was named after the late Hous-
ton Stewart Chamberlain, an Englishman who became a Ger-
man-language anti-Semitic writer.
WEEKLY GIGGLE
A foreign correspondent is credited with the story that Hitler
took the statue of Moses from the Louvre in Paris and set it up
in his garden at Berchtesgaden His entourage then was
amazed to observe that every day the Fuehrer knelt before the
statue for a solid hour Curiosity finally became too much
for his aides, and during Adolf's devotions a member of his staff
one day tiptoed up behind him to hear what he was saying to
the statue And Hitler was pleading with the image of the
great Jewish lawgiver: "Tell me, Moseshow did you ever get
your hosts across that body of water? Another correspond
ent reports that the inhabitants of much of Europe call Nazi ai
mies of occupation the "Salvation Army" This not so much
because the Heil-ling legions claim to have saved many lands
from a fate worse than death, but chiefly because the German
name for the Salvation Army is "Heilsarmee" And a do
mestic idea we'd like to pass on to you reached us via a rear
bumper sign we observed along the Hendrik Hudson Highway
. It read: "Don't Hit MeHit Hitler,"
WE MOURN A LOSS
The late Lillian Freiman, O. B. E., wife of Ottawa's A. J. Frei
man, was probably the outstanding Jewish woman on the North
American continent Her recent death saddened not only
all Canadian Zionists, one of whose honored leaders she was
but all Canadian Jewry too Some day her biography will
be written, and people will then learn the amazing range of her
humanitarian interests ... In Canadian non-Jewish circles she
was regarded as the most charitable woman in the land.
LONDON BRIGADES
The percentage of Jews in the volunteer fire brigades of Lon-
don is very high, you should know And these brigades are
performing one of the most dangerous tasks in England today
for they are called out to action in the midst of bombardments, as
fires can't be permitted to spread just because a few bombs are
dropped down from the sky English military leaders, we
hear, have been so deeply impressed with the bravery of the
Jews in these fire-fighting squads that they are urging the govern-
ment to permit the formation of larger Jewish military units in
Palestine.
THE SHOW WORLD
Charlie Chaplin's "The Great Dictator," which the New York
critics weren't so crazy about but which the public seems to like,
may never reach the movie-goers of South America ... At least,
not if Axis diplomats have their way They're bending every
effort and pulling every string to have governmental bans put on
the picture in the Latin American countries, lest our good neigh
bors get a glimpse of Charlie's opinion of Adolf and Benito
Ben Hecht is worried about the fate of his new film, "Comrade X,"
in which he has dealt somewhat unkindly with Soviet Russia.
. His fear is that political developments now brewing may
soon make it rather impolite to show an anti-Russian film
Warning to concert-goers: You are now threatened by a joint
tour of those two famed musicians Oscar Levant and Harpo
Marxwho, as you should know, play, respectively, the piano
and the harp.
REFUGEE REPORT
- A very recent arrival in this country is Oscar Karlweis, broth-
er of the widow of the late novelist Jakob Wassermann
Karlweis, whom Vienna in other years celebrated as its own
Charles Boyer, is now enroute to Hollywood after a brief stay
in Ellis Island The day after Thanksgiving will be the date
of Elisabeth Bergner's air debut This former German act-
ress, who for a time played on Broadway before returning to the
London stage and films, is about to make a big comeback now.
. Baroness Edouard de Rothschild, they say, likes to smoke
an after-dinner cigar Not a stogie, though, but one of
those dainty little ones Jane Manner, whose School ol
Speech had quite a student body even in normal times, is find-
ing herself busier and busier as Hitler continues his march
through Europe Genevieve Tabouis, the famous French
journalist and lecturer, is one of the latest newcomers to Miss
Manner's classes.

REFUGEE RESCUE
STILL CARRIED ON
New York (WNS)Rescue of
refugees through emigration con-
tinues as a considerable factor
in ameliorating the plight of
Jews in Eastern and Central Eu-
rope despite the dislocations im-
posed by war, according to a re-
port received by the Hebrew
Sheltering and Immigrant Aid
Society from the HIAS-ICA Emi-
gration Association's office in
Vilnius (Vilna)
Emigration of refugees and cit-
izens of Lithuania was tempor-
arily stopped with the incorpora-
tion of Lithuania into the Soviet
Union, since all foreign consul-
ates were closed and their ser-
vices to applicants for immigra-
tion or transit visas were discon-
tinued.
However, with the resumption
of the consideration of pending
cases by the various consulates,
which were transferred to Mos-
cow and to Stockholm, the move-
ment of emigrants and refugees
started again, a HIAS spokes-
man said.
All applications for United
States immigration visas are be-
ing handled by the American
consulate in Moscow and appli-
cations for Palestine visas are
handled by the British consulate
in the Soviet capital. The con-
sulate of China in Stockholm is
authorized to grant visas to refu-
gees going to or through China.
As the result of efforts of the
HIAS-ICA in Vilnius, it was an-
nounced, the way has been paved
for the issuance of passports by
the local Lithuanian authorities
and of transit-visas by the U. S.
S. R. for those refugees and emi-
grants who have their immigra-
tion visas and steamship tickets.
They are routed exclusively
through Siberia and Japan with
Tokio as the principal transit
port. The Japanese Government
is admitting only refugees who
are in possession of visas, steam-
ship tickets and a minimum of
S100.

A WORD FROM BERNIE
Despite the fact that broadcast-
ing ages wisecracks, anecdotes
and all other forms of humor, the
comedian continues to hold a
prominent place in radio, we are
informed by Ben Bernie. himself
a noted air comedian. "Ideas of
what is and is not funny," says
Ben, "change quickly these days
and jokes go stale fast after sev-
eral million people have heard
them via a broadcast. Yet come-
dians such as Al Pearce, Jack
Benny, Fibber McGee and Fred
Allen, continue in popularity
Sear after year. The secret,"
Ir. Bernie tells us, "is hard
work and keeping up with the
times. Each has his own brand
of humor which he translates in-
to the modern idiom, taking his
material from the daily news-
paper, rather than the joke book.
The popularity of the radio co-
median is a tribute to a group of
men and women who have ad-
justed themselves to the speed-
iest entertainment medium and
are keeping pace." And he's
proud, he says, to be of such a
group.

EDDIE HAS HIS PROBLEMS
Eddie Cantor had so many re-
quests for interviews from school
publications that he set aside the
other afternoon, reservi d NBC's
biggest studio, and took on all
rcinicrs in a mass interview. Ed-
die wastes no time for he must
make his radio program a good
one. On the payroll for ten
thousand dollars per program,
his contract calls for a graduat-
ed bonus from two hundred to i
one thousand dollars as his audi-
ence grows. The growth is meas-
ured by the Crosslcy report, a
measuring done by telephone
calls of listeners. The theory is
that the better the program, the
greater the audience, the greater
the value of Eddie Cantor as a
broadcaster.

The worshipers at the Beth

Just as errors are usually crit-
icized by constructive minds for
the purpose of forestalling repe-
tition, so by the same token ultra
meritorious movements should
receive comment in order to en-
courage its sponsors in bringing
the project to a successful con-
clusion. The writer refers to the
proposed plan for Jewish unified
education in the Miami area of
the Greater Miami Rabbinical
Association, and so favorably ac-
cepted by the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation. The Rabbis
undoubtedly have in mind, with
which the writer concurs, that
the proposed movement is the
most important in all times tor
the perpetuity of the Jewish race.
more especially now when the
extinction of the race is threat-
ened in 75 per cent of the globe.
The convenience ol attending
unified schools and the material
benefits in the curriculum sug-
gested will increase the enroll-
ment of the Hebrew students in
Greater Miami to a number con-
sistent with the area, and will
prepare the Jewish youth to sup-
plant at least a part ol the fu-
ture generation ol our race now
being eradicated across the sea.
Our present Sunday Schools and
Talmud Torah are doing com-
mendable work, but geographic-
al as well as material reasons do
not permit the injection of the
most vital subject, the nucleus
of the only force that kept our
race togetherthe traditional He-
brew tongue LOSHON KO-
DOSH. The teaching of Jewish
history alone is not sufficient
We must teach our children con-
versational Hebrew in a very se-
rious measure, without which
Jewishness cannot survive and
will slowly diminish in spite of
90 minutes Sunday School 25
Sundays of the year.
Northern cities became cog-
nizant of this situation several
years ago and have established
Hebrew Schools in the full sense
of its meaning from Kindergar-
ten Classes to High School, and
a few augmented with University
Learning. One of such schools
exists and successfully operates
in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which
the writer visited on his recent
vacation trip. In Omaha. Ne-
braska. Conservative Rabbi Gold-
stme. himself a product of the
Minneapolis Hebrew University,
is promoting a similar school in
his community. On his trip in
the Middle West, the writer vis-
ited institutions of Jewish learn-
ing in St. Louis. Omaha, and
Minneapolis, and found the Jew-
ish students not only cheerfully
attending such schools but proud
of their knowledge of conversa-
tional Hebrew. In clubs. Hebrew
Speaking plays are put on; on
trains Hebrew printed periodic-
als are noticed in the hands of
young American Jews: and in
home entertainments conversa-
tional Hebnw takes its place
amidst cultural programs. The
writer had the privilege of at-
tending a party in the home of
an American-born Jewish family
where the program consisted of
a song by a three-year old girl;
a piano rendition of Second Hun-
garian Rhapsody by Liszt played
by a young lad; and for a climax
a ten-minute extemporaneous He-
brew conversation between two
twelve-year old students of the
Jewish Schools on a topic sug-
gested by the writer.
Unified Jewish education will
be a success in the Miami area
but the establishment of it can
only be accomplished with the
cooperation of the Jewish Feder-
ation, and in turn the Greater
Miami Federation can carry out
their plans only with unified co-
operation of the entire Jewish
population of Miami, natives and
visitors alike. The Federation
has an extensive and worthy pro-
gram laid out of which Jewish
education is a part. So. U not
for any other reason than that Ol
Jewish education every Jew in
the area should not delay in sub-
scribing to the Federation with
,iberal contributions^^

that exist between religions that
are not Jewish.
In what way do I differ relig-
iously from the large number of
Christians who profess one God
and honor Jesus as a great Jew-
ish prophet.
From these meditations Mr.
Segal turned to other points of
possible difference between him
and other units of the human
race. He had heard it said that
Jews are a separate peoplea
nation within all the nations. He
has heard Jews say this and he
has read what Haman said about
Jews: "There is a certain people
scattered abroad and dispersed
among the peoples in all the pro-
vinces of thy kingdom: and their
laws are diverse from those of
every other people."
Yes, said Mr. Segal, and Hit-
ler has said it. He has plans to
set Jews apart in reservations be-
cause he finds them different.
Mr. Segal himself couldn't feel
that he was somebody separate
from the rest of mankind. He
was unwilling to accept the judg-
ment of Hitler and Haman and
the similar judgment of Jews
who think of themselves as a sep-
arate and different people.
The feeling of being different
that Jews have springs from their
pain and their fears. Mr. Segal
thought. Certainly, this was
nothing previous to be cherished
and cultivated.
He felt that he was different
only in the way in which other
individuals of the human race
differed from each other. They
were fat or thin, had long noses
or stubs, were kind or cruel,
greedy or content. Neither Mr.
Segal's virtues nor his vices were
Jewish.
He was a Jew in no separate
sense from that in which other
people are Presbyterian. Episco-
palian. British, Scandinavian or
French. Those others didn't spe-
cialize in their differences, didn't
make a cult of them.
Of course,. Hitler was going to
keep on saying that Jews are
different and for that reason
should be segregated. But Mr.
Segal wasn't agreeing with Hit-
ler and was eagerly waiting for
the time when mankind would
i be released from the bondage of
a monstrous idea. No; Mr,
Segal couldn't agree either with
Hitler or with the Jews who con-
sider themselves a separate and
different people.
I am a Jew. said Mr. Segal,
because of the good teaching that
was given me, but this is not a
cause of separation or difference.
It is mv point of union with the
' community of all mankind. I
1 am a Jew because of my long ex-
' perience of life which makes me
unique but not separate. My
experience of life is my contri-
bution to the common bundle of
human life.
Membership Drive
The response to our appeal for
new members has been very en-
couraging. While the exact fig-
ures are not available due to the
fact that the captains have not
turned in their final reports, a
straw count (with apologies to
Dr. Gallup) shows quite an in-
crease in membership in both
men's and women's divisions.
Last Sunday evening, at a card
party, many new members were
obtained.
We appeal to all you folks,
readers of this column, if you
have not been contacted by a Y
worker, please call our office and
we shall be glad to send you an
application.
Y Accorded Honor by National
Director of Alien Registration
The Y. M. H. A. feels greatly
honored because Mr. Earl G.
Harrison, national director of
alien registration at Washington,
D. C. has asked our executive
director, Maurice Grossman, to
call a conference of social ser-
vice workers in this area for the
purpose of discussing alien reg-
istration. At this conference
there was, besides the heads of
the social service agencies of this
vicinity. Mr. Harold H. Lund,
assistant to Mr. Harrison, who
spoke on the necessity of urging
all aliens to register. Thus far.
over two and one-half million
people have registered, and there-
are many who must do so by De-
cember 27. As citizens, it is
our duty to urge all those who
come within the purview of the
Alien Registration Law to avoid
a last minute rush.
Y-Ettes
Mrs. Pearl Reisman, sponsor of
this group which is composed of
girls between the ages of 13 and
16 years of age. announces that
Mrs. Molka Reich is giving a stu-
dio party to the members of the
Y-Ettes. and it falls on Saturday
evening. November 16 at 8:00
o'clock, at her studios, 19 S. W.
2nd Street. Mrs. Reich, who is
well known as director of the
marionette shows, will give a
performance of marionettes for
these youngsters. Transportation
will be provided for those who
desire it. Please call the Y of-
fice and arrange for transporta-
tion.
On Sunday evening. November
17, the first installation of the
Y-Ettes will be held at the Y in
the form of a supper and cere-
mony, which will follow thereaf-
ter. Mrs. Stanley C. Myers will
be the installing officer, assisted
by Mrs. Pearl Reisman, toast-
mistress. The program is being
arranged by Miss Rosalyn Wein-
er, who will render several vocal
selections.
Annual Thanksgiving Entertain-
ment November 27
For the past few years, we
have been conducting Thanksgiv-
ing entertainments. This year
we are glad to announce that a
fine program is being prepared
in conjunction with the women's
division. The program will be
held on the traditional Thanks-
giving Eve. Wednesday, Novem-
ber 27. The main feature of
the evening will be a debate as
follows: "Resolved that King
Solomon with his thousand wives
had an easier time than the man
of today with his one." We feel
that in this day of storm and
strife, with constant fear and
worry seizing us, we should have
a little bit of humor injected in-
to our daily life. Hence the hu-
morous topic of the debate.
Prominent judges will officiate.
Incidentally, if any of you read-
ers wish to take part in this de-
bate, please communicate with
our executive director. More de-
tails later.
Women's Division
Miss Sylvia Abrams has been
appointed chairman of a bunco
and card party which is spon-
sored by the Y. W. H. A. bowling
team. Said party will be held on
Wednesday evening. December
at the Y. Admission is 35c.
The proceeds will be devoted to
uniforms and prizes for the bowl-
ing league. Assisting Miss Ab-
rams in this committee are the
following: Iris Blumberg, Essie
Schaffer. Rose Horowitz, Thelma
Silverstein. Pearl Reisman, Hil-
da Markowitz, Lee Weiner, Sa-
rah Schenkman, Frances Gins-
berg.
New Projects
We are pleased to announce
that through the courtesy of Mrs.
Laura Valley, director of the
music project of the W. P. A., we
have been fortunate in securing
the services of Mr. Jay Wolfe who
will direct a choral group for the
Y divisions. Mr. Wolfe has par-
ticipated in many operas, and his
experience will be very valuable
to our group. It is planned to
have a women's choral group, a
children's group, and a mixed
choir. Sessions will be held af-
ternoons and evenings. Mrs.
Essie Schaeffer is chairman of
this project and all those interest-
ed are asked to communicate
with her. as sessions will start
within a week.
Auditions for our choral group
will be held on Monday morning

FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 15. 1940
Notes
By HAROLD TURK
Without any formal conven-
tions being held, without any po-
litical speeches, platforms, and
mud-slinging, the B'nai B'rith
nominations were held Tuesday
night, November 12, at our regu-
lar business meeting. The fol-
lowing Brothers were offered in
nomination by the Nominating
Committee: Abe Aronovitz, pres-
ident; Burnett Roth, first vice
president; Leo Eisenstein, second
vice president; Louis Heiman,
recording secretary; Walter C.
Kovner, treasurer; Harold Turk,
financial secretary; J. Aron Ab-
bott, monitor; Milton A. Fried-
man, assistant monitor; James
Leonard, warden; Fred Shochet,
guardian; Al Berkeley, trustee
for three years; E. Albert Pallot.
Pr. Elias Friedus. Carl Weinkle.
trustees for one year. Other nom-
inations from the floor were
Brothers Milton A. Friedman
and Dr. Harold Rand for second
vice president and A. Louis Mech-
lowitz for assistant monitor.
There were a number of other
nominations which made the eve-
ning's nominations quite spirited,
but many of those who were
nominated from the floor de-
clined. The nominating com-
mittee which consisted of a cross
section of active B'nai B'rith
workers are to be commended
for their fine selection of men
they proposed in nomination.
Elections will take place at our
next regular meeting, Tuesday
night, December 10th, the place
to be announced at some future
date.
One of the outstanding events
of the evening was the interest-
ing talk that Irving Ginsburg,
president of A. Z. A., made. It
should be gratifying to our
Lodge to know that the A. Z. A.
Chapters here are making such
rapid progress and accomplishing
so much good work. The
least we Brethren can do is to
cooperate with the two A. Z. A.
Chapters when they run their
different affairs and functions by
patronizing and attending them.
The Miami Chapter is running
their second annual Sweetheart
Dance on Sunday, December 22
at 9 o'clock, at the Alcazar Hotel
Roof Gardens. I have purchased
my tickets and would like to
get up a large party of B'nai
B'rith members. Those of you
who wish to attend, contact me
or any of the A. Z. A. boys. This
dance has my heartiest recom-
mendations as I know it will be
a most interesting and enjoyable
affair.
The Royal Palm Chapter is
having its formal initiation of a
new class of pledges at the Beth
David Synagogue. Washington
Avenue and Third Street, Miami
Beach, on Sunday night. Nov. 17,
1940. All of the Brethren, es-
pecially those of you who live on
the Beach, should make it your
business to attend this initiation

which will be both impressive
and enjoyable.
B'nai B'rith, ever mindful of
its responsibiltes and dutes of
cooperating with and participat-
ing in local and national, civic
and governmental affairs, has lo-
cally appointed a committee to
aid in the registration of aliens
under the Alien Registration Act.
This committee including Harold
Turk, chairman, and Brothers Al
Mechlowitz and Ely R. Katz, is
cooperating with the committee
of the National Council of Jew-
ish Women. At a recent lunch-
eon, a representative from Wash-
ington spoke and asked for the
continued cooperation of the dif-
ferent social and fraternal groups
in this area to facilitate the reg-
istration of aliens and to impress
upon those aliens who have not
as yet registered that the last
day is December 27th, 1940. On
behalf of the committee and
Sholem Lodge. I therefore ask
the cooperation of all the Breth-
ren to pass this information on to
members of their families, their
friends, and anybody else that
they know must register under
the Act and to suggest to them
that our committee is always
ready to give them information
and assistance.
Now that Brother Leo Eisen-
stein has returned from a rather
extensive trip, our Membership
Drive will continue with renewed
vigor. There are a great number
of members who have as yet
done nothing towards procuring
other new members. Most of
the new members who have been
\ brought in this past year have
been procured by a small group
! of active workers. The draft is
| on in our organization too. Ev-
ery Jewish man over the age of
21 years shoulid enlist in our or-
ganization which is the potential
i peacetime army of our Jewish
people in the United States. .
Perhaps I should say that we
have been at war for some time
against intolerance, discrimina-
tion and subversive activities. .
But in a respectable and peace-
ful manner And in line with
our drive for new members, we
are continuing our drive to col-
lect dues from our members who
are in arrears. I have a more
personal interest in these dues
being paid up since I have been
nominated as financial secretary.
There is another important
membership drive taking place
in our community by the Y. M.
H. A. B'nai B'rith is cooperating
with the "Y" in that drive be-
cause the activities of that or-
ganization are sorely needed and
of distinct value to our Jewish
community. I am sure that those
of you who heard Dr. Samuel
Beckman, president of the "Y"
speak at our meeting will be
impressed with his sincere mes-
sage and will contact me or some
member of the "Y" and join with
them.

is very active in our Lodge, is

PAGE SIX +Jewlsti fhrktiati FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 15, 1940 REFUGEE RESCUE STILL CARRIED ON New York (WNS)—Rescue of refugees through emigration continues as a considerable factor in ameliorating the plight of Jews in Eastern and Central Europe despite the dislocations imposed by war, according to a report received by the Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society from the HIAS-ICA Emigration Association's office in Vilnius (Vilna). Emigration of refugees and citizens of Lithuania was temporarily stopped with the incorporation of Lithuania into the Soviet Union, since all foreign consulates were closed and their services to applicants for immigration or transit visas were discontinued. However, with the resumption of the consideration of pending cases by the various consulates, which were transferred to Moscow and to Stockholm, the movement of emigrants and refugees started again, a HIAS spokesman said. All applications for United States immigration visas are being handled by the American consulate in Moscow and applications for Palestine visas are handled by the British consulate in the Soviet capital. The consulate of China in Stockholm is authorized to grant visas to refugees going to or through China. As the result of efforts of the HIAS-ICA in Vilnius, it was announced, the way has been paved for the issuance of passports by the local Lithuanian authorities and of transit-visas by the U. S. S. R. for those refugees and emigrants who have their immigration visas and steamship tickets. They are routed exclusively through Siberia and Japan with Tokio as the principal transit port. The Japanese Government is admitting only refugees who are in possession of visas, steamship tickets and a minimum of S100. SCOUTING COMMITTEE HAS BEEN APPOINTED Washington.—Appointment of a national B'nai B'rith committee on Scouting which will serve as a liasion between the Boy Scouts of America and B'nai B'rith, oldest and largest national Jewish service and fraternal organization, has been announced here by Henry Monsky, president of B'nai B'rith.

REFUGEE RESCUE
STILL CARRIED ON
New York (WNS)Rescue of
refugees through emigration con-
tinues as a considerable factor
in ameliorating the plight of
Jews in Eastern and Central Eu-
rope despite the dislocations im-
posed by war, according to a re-
port received by the Hebrew
Sheltering and Immigrant Aid
Society from the HIAS-ICA Emi-
gration Association's office in
Vilnius (Vilna).
Emigration of refugees and cit-
izens of Lithuania was tempor-
arily stopped with the incorpora-
tion of Lithuania into the Soviet
Union, since all foreign consul-
ates were closed and their ser-
vices to applicants for immigra-
tion or transit visas were discon-
tinued.
However, with the resumption
of the consideration of pending
cases by the various consulates,
which were transferred to Mos-
cow and to Stockholm, the move-
ment of emigrants and refugees
started again, a HIAS spokes-
man said.
All applications for United
States immigration visas are be-
ing handled by the American
consulate in Moscow and appli-
cations for Palestine visas are
handled by the British consulate
in the Soviet capital. The con-
sulate of China in Stockholm is
authorized to grant visas to refu-
gees going to or through China.
As the result of efforts of the
HIAS-ICA in Vilnius, it was an-
nounced, the way has been paved
for the issuance of passports by
the local Lithuanian authorities
and of transit-visas by the U. S.
S. R. for those refugees and emi-
grants who have their immigra-
tion visas and steamship tickets.
They are routed exclusively
through Siberia and Japan with
Tokio as the principal transit
port. The Japanese Government
is admitting only refugees who
are in possession of visas, steam-
ship tickets and a minimum of
S100.

Despite the fact that broadcast-

and all other forms of humor, the
comedian continues to hold a
prominent place in radio, we are
informed by Ben Bernie, himself
a noted air comedian. "Ideas of
what is and is not funny," says
Ben, "change quickly these days
and jokes go stale fast after sev-
eral million people have heard
them via a broadcast. Yet come-
dians such as Al Pearce, Jack
Benny. Fibber McGee and Fred
Allen, continue in popularity
year after year. The secret."
Mr. Bernie tells us, "is hard
work and keeping up with the
times. Each has his own brand
of humor which he translates in-
to the modern idiom, taking his
material from the daily news-
paper, rather than the joke book.
The popularity of the radio co-
median is a tribute to a group of
men and women who have ad-
justed themselves to the speed-
iest entertainment medium and
are keeping pace." And he's
proud, he says, to be of such a
group.

EDDIE HAS HIS PROBLEMS
Eddie Canlor had so many re-
quests for interviews from school
publications that he set aside the
other afternoon, reserved NBC's
biggest studio, and took on all
comers in a mass interview. Ed-
die wastes no time for he must
make his radio program a good
one. On the payroll for ten
thousand dollars per program,
his contract calls for a graduat-
ed bonus from two hundred to j
one thousand dollars as his audi-
ence grows. The growth is meas-
ured by the Crossley report, a
measuring done by telephone
calls of listeners. The theory is
that the better the program, the
greater the audience, the greater
the value of Eddie Cantor as a
broadcaster.

Nobel peace prize winner and prominent British writer, predicted that Great Britain would soon accept the offer of the Jewish Agency for Palesline to raise an army of 100.000 Jews for the defense of the Holy Land, before 500 delegates to the United Palestine Appeal conference. "The British and Jewish peoples." Sir Norman said, "now share the honor of being the two peoples of all the earth upon whom Hitler visits his deadliest enmity." He described Nazism as the supreme enemy of both the British and Jewish people and said that if Briiam were defeated there would not be a Jew in all the world who would not be in mor' tal peril. Despite the fact that normal shipping lanes had been blocked because of the war. Sir Norman u d that 24.000 Jewish refuhad entered Palestine during the first year of the war through Sweden. Russia. Greece. Rumania. Turkey and Syria. The Jewish Agency established a special immigration office m Athens which functioned up to the time of the Italian invasion. More than 7,500 Jews are still on their way to Palestine in a steady flow which has not been interrupted by the wars spread to the Mediterranean. Emphasizing Palestine's importance as a strategic point in the British line of supplies. Sir Norman pointed out that the Holy Land "has become a vital bastion in the defense not only of Britain but of Jews the world over; and not alone of Jewry but of all flee men, of human right everywhere." "The battle of the British people, the battle of Palestine, the battle of world Jewry, the battle of the rights of Jews, for the rights of man. is now all one battle, one and indivisible." The conference urged American Jewry to rush all possible financial assistance to the 500,000 Jews now in Palestine to strengthen the country's position as a stronghold in the defense of Britain in the Mediterranean.

Just as errors are usually criticized by constructive minds for the purpose of forestalling repetition, so by the same token ultra meritorious movements should receive comment in order to encourage its sponsors in bringing the project to a successful conclusion. The writer refers to the proposed plan for Jewish unified education in the Miami area ol the Greater Miami Rabbinical Association, and so favorably accepted by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. The Rabbis undoubtedly have in mind, with which the writer concurs, that tile proposed movement is the most important in all times for the perpetuity of the Jewish race, more especially now when the extinction ol the race is threatened in 75 per cent of the globe. The convenience of attending unified schools and the material benefits in the curriculum suggested will increase the 1 enrollment of the Hebrew students in Greater Miami to a number consistent with the ana. and will prepare the Jewish youth to supplant at least a part of the future generation ol our race now being eradicated across the sea. Our present Sunday Schools and Talmud Torah are doing commendable work, but geographical as well as material reasons do not permit the injection of the most vital subject, the nucleus ol the only force that kept our race togetiier—the traditional Hebrew tongue — LOSHON KODOSH. The teaching of Jewish History alone is not sufficient. We must teach our children conversational Hebrew in a very serious measure, without which Jewishness cannot survive and will slowly diminish in spite of 90 minutes Sunday School 25 Sundays of the year. Northern cities became cognizant of this situation several years ago and have established Hebrew Schools in the full sense of its meaning from Kindergarten Classes to High School, and a few augmented with University Learning. One of such schools exists and successfully operates in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which the writer visited on his recent vacation trip. In Omaha, Nebraska. Conservative Rabbi Goldstine. himself a product of the Minneapolis Hebrew University, is promoting a similar school in his community. On his trip in the Middle West, the writer visited institutions of Jewish learning in St. Louis. Omaha, and Minneapolis, and found the Jewish students not only cheerfully attending such schools but proud of their knowledge of conversational Hebrew. In clubs, HebrewSpeaking plays are put on; on trains Hebrew printed periodicals are noticed in the hands of young American Jews; and in home entertainments conversational Hebn w takes its place amidst cultural programs. The writer had the privilege of attending a party in the home of an American-born Jewish family where the program consisted of a song by a three-year old girl; a piano rendition of Second Hungarian Rhapsody by Lis/t played by a young lad; and for a climax a ten-minute extemporaneous Hebrew conversation between two twelve-year old students of the Jewish Schools on a topic suggested by the writer. Unified Jewish education will he a success in the Miami area but the establishment of it can only be accomplished with the cooperation of the Jewish Feder. at ion. and in turn the Greater Miami Federation can carry out their plans only with unified coop ( ration of the entire Jewish population of Miami, natives and visitors alike. The Federation has an extensive and worthy program laid out of which Jewish education is a part. So. it not for any other reason than that Ol Jewish education every Jew m the area should not delay m subscribing to the Federation with liberal contributions. H. SIMONS.

PLAIN TALK (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4) that exist between religions that are not Jewish. In what way do I differ religiously from the large number of Christians who profess one God and honor Jesus as a great Jewish prophet. From these meditations Mr. Segal turned to other points of possible difference between him and other units of the human race. He had heard it said that Jews are a separate people—a nation within all the nations. He has heard Jews say this and he has read what Haman said about Jews: "There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from those of every other people.'' Yes. said Mr. Segal, and Hitler has said it. He has plans to set Jews apart in reservations because he finds them different. Mr. Segal himself couldn't feel that he was somebody separate from the rest of mankind. He was unwilling to accept the judgment of Hitier and Haman and the similar judgment of Jews who think of themselves as a separate and different people. The feeling of being different I that Jews have springs from their pain and their fears. Mr. Segal 1 thought. Certainly, this was nothing previoas to be cherished and cultivated. He felt that he was different only in the way in which other individuals of the human race differed from each other. They were fat or thin, had long noses I or stubs, were kind or cruel, greedy or content. Neither Mr. ; Segal's virtues nor his vices were Jewish. He was a Jew in no separate sense from that in which other people are Presbyterian. Episcopalian. British, Scandinavian or | French. Those others didn't spe%  cialize in their differences, didn't i make a cult of them. Of course.. Hitler was going to keep on saying that Jews are different and for that reason should be segregated. But Mr. Segal wasn't agreeing with Hitler and was eagerly waiting for the time when mankind would be released from the bondage of a monstrous idea. No; Mr. Segal couldn't agree either with I Hitler or with the Jews who consider themselves a separate and j different people. I am a Jew, said Mr. Segal. because of the good teaching that was given me, but this is not a cause of separation or difference. Il is my point Of union with the community of all mankind. I am a Jew because of my long experience of life which makes me unique but not separate. My experience of life is my contribution to the common bundle of human life. THE Y. M. H. A, NOTES By HARRY SCHWARTZ Membership Drive The response to our appeal for new members has been very encouraging.

fueufsh Florid tin VOLUME 13—No. 46 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 15. 1940 PRICE 10 CENTS OF JEWISH-ARAB IS FORMED Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency)—Because of the overwhelming success that met the first call issued by the government in the middle of September for recruits for the all-Jewish and all-Arab infantry companies to form part of the Royal East Kent Regiment, known as the Buffs, the authorities announced their decision to accept enlistments of an additional 200 Jews and 200 Arabs in these companies. When these new enlistments have been completed a full allPalestinian battalion, composed of separate Jewish and Arab units, will have been created specifically for the defense of the Holy Land and its immediate environs. Great enthusiasm greeted the announcement here, and it is anticipated that the present quota will be as quickly oversubscribed as was the first one. All sections of the Jewish population are solidly behind the recruiting of allJewish units for the defense of Eretz Israel Permission to form these Jewish companies came as a climax of a campaign conducted by the Jewish Agency for Palestine since the beginning of the war for the establishment of armed Jewish units which could participate in the struggle alongside other Empire forces, but as specific representatives of the Yishuv. To date more than 5.000 young Jewish men, including the 400 thus far permitted to form allJewish units, have joined the 'British armed forces. But it is the formation of the Jewish un%  ls that has met with the most enthusiastic response and with the unqualified approval of all sections of the Yishuv. ORGANIZE UKRAINIANS FOR JEWISH OUTRAGES London (WNS)—Nazi agents have formed an organization of 5.000 anti-Semitic Ukrainians for the sole purpose of plundering and beating Jews in Galicia, according to a report from War. saw. The anti-Semitic organization, which has the unofficial support of the Nazi government in Poland, is responsible for many outrages, including the plundering of Jewish homes and stores, and criminal assaults against Jewish women. The report stated that Galician Jews are frequently subjected to merciless beatings. RAILWAY POSITIONS GREATLY IMPROVED Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)— Tho financial position of the Palatine Railways showed great "Jiprovement during the first half 1939 94 Ve thC fiFSt half f Gross revenue exceeded workln S expenses, and the number of passengers carried, apart from an.t, ckct holders, more than rubied.

During the months !" January through June, i gross revenue totalled 392,E Pounds sterling, while work expenses were kept at 316,* 39 Pounds sterling. NAZI OPPOSITION STILL INCREASING London (WNS)—Strong detachments of Dutch and German police patrolled the streets as 5.000 blackshirted Nazis paraded through the Jewish quarter of Amsterdam, shouting, '"The Streets Belong To Us," it was reported here. Anti-Nazi circles in Holland expressed satisfaction that only 5.000 persons participated in the Nazi demonstration despite the fact that Nazi Commissioner Dr. Arthur Seyes-Inquart had officially endorsed the parade. Responding to appeals from the mayor of the Dutch capital, the people remained calm during the parade. Growing opposition to the Netherland Nazi party had led to bloody street clashes over the week-end. At least 30 members of the Netherlands Union party, winch maintains that it is willing to cooperate with Germany but insists on spiritual independence and is strongly opposed to the Nazi-inspired anti-Jewisn laws, were arrested following fights with Nazis. The fight against anti-Semitism was sparked by hundreds of Protestant clergymen who publicly announced anti-Jewish regulations. Estimates place the membership of the Netherland Union Party at 500,000, and the Nazi party at 50,000. OF GREECE APPEALS TO 0. S. FOR HELP Salonika (WNS)—The Grand Rabbi of Salonika announced that he had cabled an appeal to Dr. Stephen S. Wise, president of the American Jewish Congress, to circulate a protest to •'the chiefs of the various churches in the United States" against the Italian bombing of Greek civilians. More than 20 persons were killed and at least 50 wounded when Italian bombers dropper incendiary bombs on a predominantly Jewish district in this city. New York (WNS)—Dr. Stephen S. Wise announced that he would present the protest against indiscriminate bombing of civilians by Italian raiders which he received from the Grand Rabbi of Salonika to the American Jewish Congress, which would take "whatever measures are deemed necessary." 22 JEWS VICTIMS OF HIT BY NAZI BOMBER London (WNS) — Twenty-two Jews were buried under tons of debris when a Nazi bomber scored a direct hit on an apartment building in the East End quarter of London. Emergency rescue crews were able to save some of the victims. The London county council opened five emergency soup kitchens in the East End district to feed the victims of the latest Nazi air raids. Arrangements have been made to provide homes for Jewish women, children and the aged. S END OE PALESTINE RULE TO HEAD LODGE Selected to head Sholem Lodge B'nai B'rith's more than one thousand members as president was Abe Aronovitz, who was honored by the membership receiving the nomination unanimously.

Holdover trustees are R. JEWS HARD HIT BY Ei Jerusalem (WNS) — Stressing the need for unity during the present war crisis. Pinchas Rutenberg. former president of the Vaad Leumi (Jewish National Council), urged the end of partyrule in Palestine and the creation of a small, authoritative Jewish body to govern the Palestine Jewish community. Severely criticizing the Histadruth (Palestine Jewish labor federation) for its alleged failure to achieve unity. Mr. Rutenberg demanded a ban on labor strikes for the duration of the war. He termed the forthcoming elections for the Palestine Jewish assembly as "expensive and absurd." "There is no order and discipline in the Yishuv." he maintained. "The Jewish Agency and Vaad Leumi executives do not possess adequate prestige. Money is still everybody's principal worry. The Yishuv's demoralization is growing daily." He demanded also a reorganization of Palestine's social welfare activities. Unity is the need of the Yishuv in the present grave hour and that can be achieved through the elimination of party rule, according to Pinchas Rutenberg, head of the Palestine Electric Corporation, who resigned as president I of the Vaad Leumi on September 1st. Bucharest (WNS)—The Jews of Rumania, economically strangled by the government's anti-Jewish legislation, were severely hit by the earthquakes which rocked the country over last week-encL A check-up disclosed that the Jewish communities in nine cities, including Bucharest, were badly damaged by the quakes. The Jewish districts of Galati, Focsani. Bacu, Ploesti and Campina were reported to be in ruins. The government issued an appeal to the various Jewish communities to mobilize all available? doctors, nurses and engineers to aid in the rescue work. Recent regulations, forbidding Jewish doctors and engineers to practic?, were temporarily suspended. A special Jewish relief committee was organized in Bucharest to help the victims of the catastrophe. Three emergency soup kitchens were opened in the Jewish quarter. Meanwhile, many orthodox Rumanian Gentiles clung to the belief that the most destructive earthquake in the history of Rumania was a sign of God's displeasure at the treatment of the Jews. Nazi troops and Iron Guardists, sent to the damaged districts to aid in the rescuework, were reported to have been treated coldly. USE SCHOOLS WITH AIR RAID SHELTERS Tel Aviv (Palcor Agency)— Only such schools as are provided with air raid shelters were opened when the school children of this all-Jewish city resumed their academic studies at the beginning of October after a summer holiday that had been extended from the usual two JEWS FEAR REPRISALS SINCE GUARD'S DEATH Bucharest (WNS) — Rumania's Jews fear further anti-Jewish dej R Adler and Mathew Bandlcr. crees and reprisals following the mysterious assassination of Nita Ghirica. prominent leader of the Iron Guard, violently anti-Semitic, pro-Nazi organization. The official newspaper of the anti-Semitic organization charged that the Iron Guard leader was shot in the back by a group of "Jews and unemployed Communists" who tried to organize demonstrations in the Bucharest public market. The newspaper added that "the agents who stirred up the riot" had been arrested and that miliitary authorities are investigating. At the meeting of the Ladies Auxiliary held in conjunction, the following officers were nominated and unanimously elected: Mrs. Jennie Rotfort, president; Mrs. J. A. Berman, first vice president; Mrs. Maurice Grossman, second vice president; Miss Beulah Godwin, recording secretary; Mrs. Jimmie Leonard, financial secretary; Mrs. S. Silver, corresponding secretary; Mrs. Louis Heiman. treasurer; Mrs. Isaac Levin, monitor. Mrs. Jennie Rotfort presided in the absence of Mrs. Isaac Levin. The directors will be elected in December. 8 JEWS TO CONGRESS; KOPPLEMAN ELECTED Washington (WNS)—When the next Congress convenes in January, eight Jewish congressmen will take their places among the nation's lawmakers. Six of the Jews, including four congressmen from New York, were re-elected. Herman P. Koppelman of Connecticut, who was defeated in the 1938 elections, regained his scat in the house in last Tuesday's election. Samuel A. Weiss was sent to congress from Pennsylvania. The other six, all re-elected, were: Adolph J. Sabath of Illinois, chairman of the house rules committee; Emanuel Celler, Samuel Dickstein, M. M. Edelstein, and Sol Bloom, all from New York, and Leon Sacks, of Pennsylvania. ty considerations. Originally the schools, which had closed almost a half month early, were scheduled to re-open in the middle of September. But the air raids conducted against this open city by Italian bombers on September 9th made it nesessary to provide temporary air raid precautions facilities in the schools instead. MANY LOANS MADE IN EIGHT MONTHS Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)— During the first eight months of 1940 over 100.00 pounds sterling were loaned to the Yishuv's agricultural settlements to help expand their farming capacity by Nir, Ltd., the agricultural financing and contracting company of the Histadruth (General Jewish Federation of Labor). Outstanding loans at the end of 1939 totalled 243,000 pounds sterling.

PAGE EIGHT vjewlsli ncrkHnn FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 15. 1940 Notes By HAROLD TURK Without any formal conventions being held, without any political speeches, platforms, and mud-slinging, the B'nai B'rith nominations were held Tuesday night, November 12, at our regular business meeting. The following Brothers were offered in nomination by the Nominating Committee: Abe Aronovitz, president; Burnett Roth, first vice president; Leo Eisenstein, second vice president; Louis Heiman, recording secretary; Walter C. Kovner, treasurer; Harold Turk, financial secretary; J. Aron Abbott, monitor; Milton A. Friedman, assistant monitor; James Leonard, warden; Fred Shochet, guardian; Al Berkeley, trustee for three years; E. Albert Pallot. Pr. Elias Friedus. Carl Weinkle. trustees for one year. Other nominations from the floor were Brothers Milton A. Friedman and Dr. Harold Rand for second vice president and A. Louis Mechlowitz for assistant monitor. There were a number of other nominations which made the evening's nominations quite spirited, but many of those who were nominated from the floor declined. The nominating committee which consisted of a cross section of active B'nai B'rith workers are to be commended for their fine selection of men they proposed in nomination. Elections will take place at our next regular meeting, Tuesday night, December 10th, the place to be announced at some future date. One of the outstanding events of the evening was the interesting talk that Irving Ginsburg, president of A. Z. A., made. It should be gratifying to our Lodge to know that the A. Z. A. Chapters here are making such rapid progress and accomplishing so much good work. The least we Brethren can do is to cooperate with the two A. Z. A. Chapters when they run their different affairs and functions by patronizing and attending them. The Miami Chapter is running their second annual Sweetheart Dance on Sunday, December 22 at 9 o'clock, at the Alcazar Hotel Roof Gardens. I have purchased my tickets and would like to get up a large party of B'nai B'rith members. Those of you who wish to attend, contact me or any of the A. Z. A. boys. This dance has my heartiest recommendations as I know it will be a most interesting and enjoyable affair. The Royal Palm Chapter is having its formal initiation of a new class of pledges at the Beth David Synagogue. Washington Avenue and Third Street, Miami Beach, on Sunday night. Nov. 17, 1940. All of the Brethren, especially those of you who live on the Beach, should make it your business to attend this initiation R. W. BROWN & CO.

PHONE 2-3M4 which will be both impressive and enjoyable. B'nai B'rith, ever mindful of its responsibiltes and dutes of cooperating with and participating in local and national, civic and governmental affairs, has locally appointed a committee to aid in the registration of aliens under the Alien Registration Act. This committee including Harold Turk, chairman, and Brothers Al Mechlowitz and Ely R. Katz, is cooperating with the committee of the National Council of Jewish Women. At a recent luncheon, a representative from Washington spoke and asked for the continued cooperation of the different social and fraternal groups in this area to facilitate the registration of aliens and to impress upon those aliens who have not as yet registered that the last day is December 27th, 1940. On behalf of the committee and Sholem Lodge. I therefore ask the cooperation of all the Brethren to pass this information on to members of their families, their friends, and anybody else that they know must register under the Act and to suggest to them that our committee is always ready to give them information and assistance. Now that Brother Leo Eisenstein has returned from a rather extensive trip, our Membership Drive will continue with renewed vigor. There are a great number of members who have as yet done nothing towards procuring other new members. Most of the new members who have been \ brought in this past year have %  been procured by a small group of active workers. The draft is | on in our organization too. Every Jewish man over the age of 21 years shoulid enlist in our organization which is the potential i peacetime army of our Jewish people in the United States. Perhaps I should say that we have been at war for some time against intolerance, discrimination and subversive activities. But in a respectable and peaceful manner And in line with our drive for new members, we are continuing our drive to collect dues from our members who are in arrears. I have a more personal interest in these dues being paid up since I have been nominated as financial secretary. There is another important membership drive taking place in our community by the Y. M. H. A. B'nai B'rith is cooperating with the "Y" in that drive because the activities of that organization are sorely needed and of distinct value to our Jewish community. I am sure that those of you who heard Dr. Samuel Beckman, president of the "Y" speak at our meeting will be impressed with his sincere message and will contact me or some member of the "Y" and join with them.

Our congregation looks forward to even greater participation in next year's A. Z. A. Sabbath. RELIGIOUS SCHOOL Continuing registration has swelled the attendance in all our classes.

However, with the resumption of the consideration of pending cases by the various consulates, which were transferred to Moscow and to Stockholm, the movement of emigrants and refugees started again, a HIAS spokesman said. All applications for United States immigration visas are being handled by the American consulate in Moscow and applications for Palestine visas are handled by the British consulate in the Soviet capital. The consulate of China in Stockholm is authorized to grant visas to refugees going to or through China. As the result of efforts of the HIAS-ICA in Vilnius, it was announced, the way has been paved for the issuance of passports by the local Lithuanian authorities and of transit-visas by the U. S. S. R. for those refugees and emigrants who have their immigration visas and steamship tickets. They are routed exclusively through Siberia and Japan with Tokio as the principal transit port. The Japanese Government is admitting only refugees who are in possession of visas, steamship tickets and a minimum of S100. SCOUTING COMMITTEE HAS BEEN APPOINTED Washington.—Appointment of a national B'nai B'rith committee on Scouting which will serve as a liasion between the Boy Scouts of America and B'nai B'rith, oldest and largest national Jewish service and fraternal organization, has been announced here by Henry Monsky, president of B'nai B'rith.

FILM AND RADIO s by Melvin Spiegel A WORD FROM BERNIE Despite the fact that broadcasting ages wisecracks, anecdotes and all other forms of humor, the comedian continues to hold a prominent place in radio, we are informed by Ben Bernie. himself a noted air comedian. "Ideas of what is and is not funny," says Ben, "change quickly these days and jokes go stale fast after several million people have heard them via a broadcast. Yet comedians such as Al Pearce, Jack Benny, Fibber McGee and Fred Allen, continue in popularity S ear after year. The secret," Ir. Bernie tells us, "is hard work and keeping up with the times. Each has his own brand of humor which he translates into the modern idiom, taking his material from the daily newspaper, rather than the joke book. The popularity of the radio comedian is a tribute to a group of men and women who have adjusted themselves to the speediest entertainment medium and are keeping pace." And he's proud, he says, to be of such a group. %  fr & EDDIE HAS HIS PROBLEMS Eddie Cantor had so many requests for interviews from school publications that he set aside the other afternoon, reservi d NBC's biggest studio, and took on all rcinicrs in a mass interview. Eddie wastes no time for he must make his radio program a good one. On the payroll for ten thousand dollars per program, his contract calls for a graduated bonus from two hundred to i one thousand dollars as his audience grows. The growth is measured by the Crosslcy report, a measuring done by telephone calls of listeners. The theory is that the better the program, the greater the audience, the greater the value of Eddie Cantor as a broadcaster. •6 %  & THIS 'N' THAT Announcer Ben Grauer sud, denly and unaccountably developed a frog in his throat on the Walter Winchell repeat progra;n a few weeks ago.

One night, however, the machine in the tub, which whipped up the suds, stopped during her scon.' The soap bubbles began to recede.

Just as errors are usually crit-
icized by constructive minds for
the purpose of forestalling repe-
tition, so by the same token ultra
meritorious movements should
receive comment in order to en-
courage its sponsors in bringing
the project to a successful con-
clusion. The writer refers to the
proposed plan for Jewish unified
education in the Miami area ol
the Greater Miami Rabbinical
Association, and so favorably ac-
cepted by the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation. The Rabbis
undoubtedly have in mind, with
which the writer concurs, that
tile proposed movement is the
most important in all times for
the perpetuity of the Jewish race,
more especially now when the
extinction ol the race is threat-
ened in 75 per cent of the globe.
The convenience of attending
unified schools and the material
benefits in the curriculum sug-
gested will increase the1 enroll-
ment of the Hebrew students in
Greater Miami to a number con-
sistent with the ana. and will
prepare the Jewish youth to sup-
plant at least a part of the fu-
ture generation ol our race now
being eradicated across the sea.
Our present Sunday Schools and
Talmud Torah are doing com-
mendable work, but geographic-
al as well as material reasons do
not permit the injection of the
most vital subject, the nucleus
ol the only force that kept our
race togetiierthe traditional He-
brew tongue LOSHON KO-
DOSH. The teaching of Jewish
History alone is not sufficient.
We must teach our children con-
versational Hebrew in a very se-
rious measure, without which
Jewishness cannot survive and
will slowly diminish in spite of
90 minutes Sunday School 25
Sundays of the year.
Northern cities became cog-
nizant of this situation several
years ago and have established
Hebrew Schools in the full sense
of its meaning from Kindergar-
ten Classes to High School, and
a few augmented with University
Learning. One of such schools
exists and successfully operates
in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which
the writer visited on his recent
vacation trip. In Omaha, Ne-
braska. Conservative Rabbi Gold-
stine. himself a product of the
Minneapolis Hebrew University,
is promoting a similar school in
his community. On his trip in
the Middle West, the writer vis-
ited institutions of Jewish learn-
ing in St. Louis. Omaha, and
Minneapolis, and found the Jew-
ish students not only cheerfully
attending such schools but proud
of their knowledge of conversa-
tional Hebrew. In clubs, Hebrew-
Speaking plays are put on; on
trains Hebrew printed periodic-
als are noticed in the hands of
young American Jews; and in
home entertainments conversa-
tional Hebn w takes its place
amidst cultural programs. The
writer had the privilege of at-
tending a party in the home of
an American-born Jewish family
where the program consisted of
a song by a three-year old girl;
a piano rendition of Second Hun-
garian Rhapsody by Lis/t played
by a young lad; and for a climax
a ten-minute extemporaneous He-
brew conversation between two
twelve-year old students of the
Jewish Schools on a topic sug-
gested by the writer.
Unified Jewish education will

only be accomplished with the
cooperation of the Jewish Feder.

Miami Federation can carry out
their plans only with unified co-
op( ration of the entire Jewish
population of Miami, natives and
visitors alike. The Federation
has an extensive and worthy pro-

. that exist between religions that
are not Jewish.
In what way do I differ relig-
iously from the large number of
Christians who profess one God
and honor Jesus as a great Jew-
ish prophet.
From these meditations Mr.
Segal turned to other points of
possible difference between him
and other units of the human
race. He had heard it said that
Jews are a separate peoplea
nation within all the nations. He
has heard Jews say this and he
has read what Haman said about
Jews: "There is a certain people
scattered abroad and dispersed
among the peoples in all the pro-
vinces of thy kingdom; and their
laws are diverse from those of
every other people.''
Yes. said Mr. Segal, and Hit-
ler has said it. He has plans to
set Jews apart in reservations be-
cause he finds them different.
Mr. Segal himself couldn't feel
that he was somebody separate
from the rest of mankind. He
was unwilling to accept the judg-
ment of Hitier and Haman and
the similar judgment of Jews
who think of themselves as a sep-
arate and different people.
The feeling of being different
I that Jews have springs from their
pain and their fears. Mr. Segal
1 thought. Certainly, this was
nothing previoas to be cherished
and cultivated.
He felt that he was different
only in the way in which other
individuals of the human race
differed from each other. They
were fat or thin, had long noses
I or stubs, were kind or cruel,
! greedy or content. Neither Mr.
; Segal's virtues nor his vices were
Jewish.
He was a Jew in no separate
sense from that in which other
! people are Presbyterian. Episco-
palian. British, Scandinavian or
| French. Those others didn't spe-
cialize in their differences, didn't
i make a cult of them.
Of course.. Hitler was going to
keep on saying that Jews are
different and for that reason
should be segregated. But Mr.
Segal wasn't agreeing with Hit-
ler and was eagerly waiting for
the time when mankind would
be released from the bondage of
a monstrous idea. No; Mr.
Segal couldn't agree either with
I Hitler or with the Jews who con-
sider themselves a separate and
j different people.
I am a Jew, said Mr. Segal.
because of the good teaching that
was given me, but this is not a
cause of separation or difference.
Il is my point Of union with the
community of all mankind. I
am a Jew because of my long ex-
perience of life which makes me
unique but not separate. My
experience of life is my contri-
bution to the common bundle of
human life.

Membership Drive
The response to our appeal for
new members has been very en-
couraging. While the exact fig-
ures are not available due to the
fact that the captains have not
turned in their final reports, a
straw count (with apologies to
Dr. Gallup) shows quite an in-
crease in membership in both
men's and women's divisions.
Last Sunday evening, at a card
party, many new members were
obtained.
We appeal to all you folks,
readers of this column, if you
have not been contacted by a Y
worker, please call our office and
we shall be glad to send you an
application.
Y Accorded Honor by National
Director of Alien Registration
The Y. M. H. A. feels greatly
honored because Mr. Earl G.
Harrison, national director of
alien registration at Washington.
D. C., has asked our executive
director. Maurice Grossman, to
call a conference of social ser-
vice workers in this area for the
purpose of discussing alien reg-
istration. At this conference
there was. besides the heads of
the social service agencies of this
vicinity, Mr. Harold H. Lund,
assistant to Mr. Harrison, who
spoke on the necessity of urging
all aliens to register. Thus far,
over two and one-half million
people have registered, and there
are many who must do so by De-
cember 27. As citizens, it is
our duty to urge all those who
come within the purview of the
Alien Registration Law to avoid
a last minute rush. _,

Annual Thanksgiving Entertain-
ment November 27
For the past few years, we
have been conducting Thanksgiv-
ing entertainments. This year
we are glad to announce that a
fine program is being prepared
in conjunction with the women's
division. The program will be
held on the traditional Thanks-
giving Eve, Wednesday. Novem-
ber 27. The main feature of
the evening will be a debate as
follows: "Resolved that King
Solomon with his thousand wives
had an easier time than the man
of today with his one." We feel
that in this day of storm and
strife, with constant fear and
I worry seizing us, we should have
a little bit of humor injected in-
to our daily life. Hence the hu-
morous topic of the debate.
Prominent judges will officiate.
Incidentally, if any of you read-
ers wish to take part in this de-
bate, please communicate with
our executive director. More de-
tails later.
