FLORIDA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1940 PRICE 10 CENTS CREEK VICTORY OVER ITALY WILL JEWS FREE Athens (WNS)—A Greek victory over Italy will make the Jews, as well as other peoples, free and happy. Undersecretary of State Nikoloudis told a delegation of prominent Jews which called upon him to pledge the support and devotion of the Crock Jews to the country. Undersecretary Nikoloudis declared that he was gratified with the wholehearted support of the Jewish population and said that Greece placed full confidence in her sons, regardless of religion. The Greek official cited the fact that the Greek Army, which has been successfully stemming the Italian invasion, includes a large number of Jewish soldiers, and nine Jewish officers. Despite an Italian air raid on the Jewish quarter of Salonika, he said, the morale of the Jewish population was high. Earlier Chief Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Koretz of Salonika dispatched an appeal to Dr. Stephen S. Wise in Net York calling upon various chief groups to protest against the Italian bombing of civilians. Meanwhile, the Jewish community (if Salonika appealed to Jewish organizations in New York. Chicago, Buenos Aires, Palestine and Egypt to contribute to the Greek war relief fund. iDr Stephen S. Wise announced m New York that he had forwarded the appeal of Chief Rabbi Koretz to Secretary of State Cordell Hull ) URGE AMERICAN JEWS (GIVE AID TO REFUGEES Mew York (WNS)—An urgent appeal to American Jewry to provide funds to the Joint Distribution Committee through the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees and Overseas Needs for Emergency relief and medical assistance for Jewish refugees in unoccupied France, was received this we.k from J D. C. headquarters in Lisbon. The cable, outlining immediate needs in this sector of distress, stated that local committees were fequired to provide food, cloth">g. shelter and other assistance to more than 10.000 Jewish refugees who are interned in various camps in unoccupied France, aid o East European Jews economically dislocated by the war, provision for orphans and refugee emldren through OSE and emigration aid to refugees in possession of visas. The needs of French Jews and German, Belgian and other JewBh re fugees in unoccupied France 'epresent one phase of the widespread emergncy situation in *sh life abroad which must "ernet by the J. D. C. which together with the United Palestine Wal and the National Refu?!? ^'ce s represented in the "*0 United Jewish Appeal. SWISS BAN PRO-KAZL [ ANTI-SEMITIC ORDERS Berne (WNS) — The Federal Council has ordered the immediate dissolution of two anti-Semitic and Pro-Nazi organizations, the Society for Authoritarian Democracy and the National Socialist Swiss Workers Party, it was announced here. The action was taken after Government investigators determined that pamphlets attacking Swiss authorities and the principles of democracy were distributed throughout the country by the two Nazi organizations It was reported that Ernst Leonhardt, head of the Society for Authoritarian Democracy and the author of a number of antiSemitic pamphlets, is now in Germany. J. 0. C. EEEDS New York (WNS)—The daily feeding of 250.000 needy Jews in Poland was reported here by Joseph C Hyman, executive vicechairman of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, on the basis of a cabled report from Kraku received by the Committee in New York. Six hundred and fifty soup kitchens and feeding stations in 346 separate localities throughout the Gouvernement Generale area of Poland are serving one meal daily to a quarter million Jewish victims of war and persecution. Supervised by officials of the J. D. C.'s branches in Warsaw and Krakau. the relief program includes the care of 50.000 destitute Jewish children in institutions and private families. Under the control of Toz. central Jewish medical organization of Poland which receives its funds from the J. D. C. 200 health stations, hospitals, clinics and sanatoria serve the medical needs ol Polish Jews The number of those presently being assisted represents a reduction from the peaks set earlier in the year. Until May. 1940. the J. D. C. was daily assisting up to 400.000 Polish Jewish war victims, adults and children Lack of funds necessitated contraction of this program to its present level More than 11,500.000 zlotys were expended in cash by the Warsaw and Krakau offices of the J. D. C. from the beginning of 1940 to October 1. At the average rate of exchange which the J. D. C. obtains in clearing its remittances to Poland, represents over $1,150,000. this JUSTICE HUGHES TO BE SHOWN HIGH HONORS New York (WNS)—The National Conference of Christians and Jews will present a citation to Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes in recognition of his contribution toward the improvement of human relations.

Congregation. Members of the Jewish Community are urged to attend. Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency! Mapay, Palestine's Jewry's Labor Party, inaugurated its new Arlcsoroff Building, dedicated to the memory of Dr. Chaim Arlesoroff. labor leader, and Jewish Agency executive member who was murdered while walking on the sands of this city's seashore in June, 1933. The dedication ceremonies included the unveiling of a bas relief of Arlesoroff. and a eulogy delivered by Moshe Shertok. head of the Political Department of the Jewish Agency Executive. An exhibition prepared in order to demonstrate 20 years of upbuilding effort in Eretz Israel, was opened in the Main Hall of the Building. TO BE DISMISSED Bucharest (WNS)—The complete economic strangulation of Rumania's Jewish population was foreshadowed here with the announcement that all private enterprises and factories must discharge their Jewish employees regardless of position and qualifications, by Dec. 31, 1941. The announcement, published in Bucharest newspapers, stated that Jewish war veterans and Jews who rendered meritorious service to Rumania would be the sole exceptions to the blanket order. While the decree gives Rumanian employers a full year in which to discharge their Jewish help, many employers have already complied with the new anti-Jewish regulations. Jewish participation in Rumanian industry is rapidly becoming non-existent. Since previous decrees have driven Jews off their own farms and lands, dispossessed them from their homes, and denied them the right to practice their professions, the Jewish population faces a future limitod to begging for alms. In Iron Guard circles it was reported that the Government would permit Jews to enlist in labor battalions in return for a subsistence allowance. It appears likely, however, that service in the labor battalions will be compulsory for all Jewish males between the ages of 16 and 50. Indicative of the Nazi occupation of Rumania was the recent decree elevating the Nazi swastika to the same status as the Rumanian war flag. German troops in Rumania are now the virtual masters of the country. DR. EINSTEIN TO HEAD FRIENDS COMMITTEE New York (WNS)—Professor Albert Einstein will serve as chairman of the National Council of the American Friends of the Hebrew University. JEWS REPORTED PARTS OF FRANCE bondon (WNS)—More than 10,000 Jews have been compelled to leave their homes in the German Rhineland and move to unoccupied France, it was reliably reported here. About 6,500 of the German Jews have been quartered at a special center in the Basses Pyrenees, which is now being completed. Among the Jews at the center are 2,000 between the ages of 60 and 104 years. Two of the refugees are centenarians. A French official said that the aim of the Government was to give these Jews a place to stay until they can find refuge somewhere It was made clear that foreign Jews who obtain permission to enter other countries will receive every cooperation from the Vichy Government. Meanwhile, nearly 20.000 Jews among the French-speaking population, face immediate expulsion from Lorraine as a result of Vice Premier Pierre Laval's agreement with Nazi officials for the expulsion of all French-speaking inhabitants from Lorraine. According to reports from unoccupied France about 6,000 persons arrive daily from Lorraine. The refugees arrive penniless and in need of clothing. It was generally agreed that unless Jewish relief organizations come to the aid of the Jews expelled from Lorraine they will face a winter of starvation. FRANCIS BIDDLE URGES TOLERANCE TO ALIENS New York (WNS)—Deploring the confusion and emotion gencrated in the United States by the European war, Francis Biddie, solicitor general of the United States, urged a more tolerant attitude toward aliens at the 16th triennial convention of the National Council of Jewish Women. Mr. Biddle told the 800 delegates and visitors from 40 states that "one policy we must shape in the immedite future is what our attitude should be toward refugees from Europe." "Until 1924 immigrants came to us faster than we could absorb them." he said. "The quota system was designed to slow that process, without abandoning altogether those streams of new blood to our mixed population. We have not abandoned that policy. The delegates adopted resolutions supporting the president's program to keep the United States out of war, and favoring admission of refugee children from the European war zone to the United States over and above the quota for permanent residence.

SHOCHET Managing Editor Entered as second class matter July 4, 1930 at the Post Otice of Miami. Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR W -00 SIX MONTHS 1 00 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1940 VOLUME 13 NUMBER 47 PLAIN TALK! TRANSFUSION By Al S*l STRENGTH IS MIGHT Mr. Edward I. Kaufmann. president of the Zionist Organization of America, has designated the five week period ending with Chanukah as Zionist Membership Month. In his statement proclaiming the month, he appealed for unity and the submerging of all differences to the primary task of concentrating upon the efforts for the upbuilding of the Jewish Homeland in Palestine. A goal of 150,000 members has been set by the present administration of the Z. O. A. This is by no means an unreasonable figure. In ratio to the 5,000,000 Jews in this country, it only constitutes 3% of the Jewish population. 150,000 members, therefore, would represent the very minimum reguired to demonstrate to American public opinion and the world at large that the Zionist program which seeks to rehabilitate our homeless people on its own soil is supported by all segments of American Jewry. The attainment of this goal should therefore be the concern of every American Jew who seeks to render constructive help to his brethren in need and who desires to help in providing a home and security for hundreds of thousands of our persecuted brethren who look to Palestine as their only ray of hope. Since the outbreak of the war, the news that filters through the Palestine military censorship has been scant. Nevertheless, the dispatches that reach this country serve to convey to us a picture indicating that despite the war and in the face of considerable obstacles the Jewish community of Palestine carries on uninterruptedly its daily tasks and doggedly continues with the upbuilding of the country. From the various bulletins and Palestine news releases which recently reached our desk, we selected brief items as reflective of the progress being recorded in Palestine, now one of the principal targets of totalitarian aggression in the Near East. We read of the building of a large warehouse at the Keren Hayesed settlement of Kfar Hahoresh. Another news item relates that a new glass factory was established in Richon le Zion and has issued a call for skilled workers. We also read with great interest a report that another group of Jewish immigrants from Yemen reached Palestine, which is additional conclusive proof that Great Britain is in full control of the Red Sea. Of considerable interest is an item telling of the admission of 50 more Jewish refugees into the colony of Ain Harod, largest Keren Hayesed settlement in Emek Israel, which recently marked the 19th anniversary of its founding. These reports are climaxed by an item that the total holdings of the Jewish National Fund now has reached 520,000 dunams and that the Jewish Agency for Palestine has completed plans for the establishment of 15 new settlements in the coming months on land that has already been selected and acguired. More than 50 new industrial enterprises have been launched in 1940. These reports are indicative of the scope of the efforts that are now being made with the help of the national Palestine funds in extending the Jewish positions in Palestine in order to make possible the absorption of additional large numbers of Jewish refugees. It is clear that the Jewish community of Palestine is doing its share, perhaps more than its rightful share toward the solution of the Jewish refugee problem in this.the most crucial time in the history of our people and mankind. The Zionist Organization of America, which is the instrumentality of American Jewry for the upbuilding of the Jewish Homeland, is asking American Jews, who are fortunately situated in this country of freedom and democracy, to fulfill their obligations, which, considered in terms of real sacrifice, amounts to so little. The duty of every Jew, who is not yet a member of the Zionist Organization, is therefore clear. Now, according to a dispatch from London, the British recently captured a tough Nazi p'lot who had been wounded. He abused nurses, doctors and all England. Yet they were most generous with him. They gave him a blood transfusion, put him i na nice clean bed "Now, my lad." said the doctor, "you have two pints of good Jewish blood in you. We hope it will improve your manners. • • • I have further information about this matter. It came to me last evening when I was sitting in a large chair at my fire place. You know what a pleasant wood fire does to a man in a big soft chair. He sits there following the bright tracery of the flame and all at once his mind departs from the chair and pursues a gay spiral up the flue. Up through the flue to the stars! There, among the stars. the mind learns many things that are unknown to it in its earthbound state; for the stars, as (Airy one knows, see everything. From the stars I learned the seuel of the story of the tough Nazi into whom two pints of Jewish blood were poured. His name, as I ascertained, is Kuno Hanswurst, a flight lieutenant. He comes from Prussian stock. His father was the famous Colonel Manfred Hanswurst who in his youth, when he was a lieutenant, was a great fellow on the Unter-den-Linden in Berlin. On this renowned thoroughfare he cut a wide swath as he pushed civilians into the gutter, in accordance with the old Prussian guard custom. This shows how naturally Lieutenant Kuno Hanswurst came by his rudeness. Among the stars I also discovered the nature of the blood that was injected into Lieutenant Hanswurst. There was a quiet. lambent star that reminded me of the gentle eyes of some philosopher. This star told me. "What I am about to tell you does not mean that all Jews have the best blood." the star was careful to explain. "Not all Jewish blood is good and not all German blood is bad. Blood, my friend, is individual, not racial, in its characteristics. There is no group of blood of which it may be said that this is all good or that is all bad." Well, it seems that the blood that was transfused into Kuno Hanswurst came from a man named Hyman Shapiro. Mr. Shapiro was a refugee in London and when the British decided to put all aliens from enemy countries into camps he had to go. To the camp he toolc his Talmudic volumes in order to augment his knowledge of the Law during the long period of his leisure away from everything. Yet, though in in those studies Mr. Shapiro found great enjoyment, he also felt troubled. He asked himself: "To what good is it that I take unto myself this Law of compassion and mercy and loving-kindness since I can not apply it in the world? This dreadful world certainly needs this Law, considering how horribly things have been going ," Mr. Shapiro walked up and down the length of the camp, thinking of ways to make the Law widely useful in his confined state. He wished he had telephatic means by which he transfer it to the hearts of the arrogant. One day he watched a Nazi bomber flying over the camp and with all his might tried to direct thoughts of compassion, mercy and loving kindness to the heart of the aviator. Nevertheless, the aviator dropped a load of bombs on an orphan asylum nearby. Suddenly it came to Mr. Shapiro: He would give him blood for transfusions to the wounded. To do this certainly would be a wide and righteous application of the commandmants of the Holy Law. Not that Mr. Shapiro was vain in the matter of his blood.

BIRON) ECHOES OF THE WAR Hitler's Balkan efforts to ciose the mouth of the Danube have inspired a local wiseacre to inguire whether the Beautiful .3] ue river has been expressing anti-Nazi opinions ... Dr. Kurt von Schuschnigg. last Chancellor of the late Austrian Republic, who has been variously reported as a prisoner in a Nazi concentra-t tion camp and hopessly insane, is living guite well and happy* %  in Munich His wife, also well and happy, is with him there What with Italian soldiers being routed by th e Greeks, the Italian navy being smashed by the British, and Italian, planes being brought down by the dozen in England, we can understand the skeptical attitude of the Italian people on the guestion of their own military efficiency They're particllarly unimpressed by their anti-aircraft defense, which a credited with much damage to Italian property and to whic'* the death of General Balbo is attributed ... It now appears that it was Italian anti-aircraft guns which shot down the plane in which Balbo was making an inspection flight ... A refuqee of our acguaintance tells us that Field Marshal Hermann Goering. Hitler's second in command, has a half-brother who is a non-Aryan and who was one of Vienna's leading film executives for years And that when the Nazis marched into Vienna a couple of years ago special orders were issued pro-! viding that the half-Jewish half-brother of the Nazi air chief was not to be molested in any way. REFUGEES ALL Among the unfortunates held in French concentration camps now that Hitler is the boss of what used to be the land of Liberty, Eguality and Fraternity are many thousands of Spaniards who were forced to flee their country after the victory of the Franco Fascists ... A movement to eguip American rescue ships to bring these fighters for democracy to Mexico, which will be glad to welcome them, has now been launched .... Leader of the movement is Helen Keller, the lady who has proved to all the world that strength of spirit can overcome all handicaps ... If you're interested in supporting this "American Rescue Ship Mission" just address your contribution to Miss Keller, at 200 Fifth Avenue, New York They say that the reason why the Nazis don't want ex-King Carol of Rumania and Madga Lupescu to come to the New World is that Hitler is afraid the two of them might tell America the truth about whatj is going on in the Balkans Madga, incidentally, has been< handling the former monarch's business affairs, and his large properties in Canada and Brazil are held mostly in her name. RANSOM UNPAID Frau Alma Mahlor-Werfel, Aryan wife of novelist Frani Werfel, who together with her husband has at last found refuge in this country, attributes their escape from the hands of the Nazis to Adolf Hitler's love of music ... As the widow of the famous composer Gustav Mahler, Frau Werfel has a valuable collection of musical memorabilia, most of which she of course had to leave in Vienna Among the major pieces she rescued, however, was the original score of Anton Bruckner's Third Symphony And Hitler greatly admires this work, and would like to own the manuscript Through intermediaries he offered Frau Werfel SI0,000 for the score She, however, refused to sell it to him What's more, she let the Nazis understand that if even a finger were laid on Werfel she would immediately dispose of the manuscript in such a way| that Hitler would never be able to get hold of it ... So the! Nazis desisted from touching the Jewish author, and Werfel and 1 his wife and the manuscript are all safe in the United States now.

Jewish religious leaders have removed the holy scrolls and other sacred objects from many of the synagogues in London's battered East End district. The holy scrolls were removed to places deemed safe from future Nazi air attacks. German raids on the predominantly Jewish East End section alone since the start of the war have resulted in the demolition of one synagogue and the partial destruction of eight others. Arrangements have been made for Jews left without a synagogue to observe the Sabbath and holidays at other houses of worship. In some instances churches have been placed at the disposal of congregations whose temples were destroyed. Meanwhile, it was learned that since Aug. 1. more than 6.000 DISTRICT BOARD MEETS MONDAY An important meeting of the Greater Miami Zionist District Organization will be held Monday, Nov. 25th at Beth David Talmud Torah at 8:15 p. m., presided at by Sidney Segall, president.

CREEK VICTORY
OVER ITALY WILL
JEWS FREE
Athens (WNS)A Greek vic-
tory over Italy will make the
Jews, as well as other peoples,
free and happy. Undersecretary
of State Nikoloudis told a delega-
tion of prominent Jews which
called upon him to pledge the
support and devotion of the
Crock Jews to the country.
Undersecretary Nikoloudis de-
clared that he was gratified with
the wholehearted support of the
Jewish population and said that
Greece placed full confidence in
her sons, regardless of religion.
The Greek official cited the
fact that the Greek Army, which
has been successfully stemming
the Italian invasion, includes a
large number of Jewish soldiers,
and nine Jewish officers. De-
spite an Italian air raid on the
Jewish quarter of Salonika, he
said, the morale of the Jewish
population was high.
Earlier Chief Rabbi Zvi Hirsch
' Koretz of Salonika dispatched an
appeal to Dr. Stephen S. Wise in
Net York calling upon various
chief groups to protest against
the Italian bombing of civilians.
Meanwhile, the Jewish com-
munity (if Salonika appealed to
Jewish organizations in New
York. Chicago, Buenos Aires,
Palestine and Egypt to contribute
to the Greek war relief fund.
iDr Stephen S. Wise announced
m New York that he had for-
warded the appeal of Chief Rabbi
Koretz to Secretary of State Cor-
dell Hull )
URGE AMERICAN JEWS
(GIVE AID TO REFUGEES
Mew York (WNS)An urgent
appeal to American Jewry to pro-
vide funds to the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee through the
United Jewish Appeal for Ref-
ugees and Overseas Needs for
Emergency relief and medical
assistance for Jewish refugees in
unoccupied France, was received
this we.k from J D. C. headquar-
ters in Lisbon.
The cable, outlining immediate
needs in this sector of distress,
stated that local committees were
fequired to provide food, cloth-
">g. shelter and other assistance
to more than 10.000 Jewish refu-
gees who are interned in various
camps in unoccupied France, aid
o East European Jews economic-
ally dislocated by the war, pro-
vision for orphans and refugee
emldren through OSE and emi-
gration aid to refugees in posses-
sion of visas.
The needs of French Jews and
German, Belgian and other Jew-
Bh refugees in unoccupied France
'epresent one phase of the wide-
spread emergncy situation in

gether with the United Palestine

SWISS BAN PRO-KAZL
[ ANTI-SEMITIC ORDERS
Berne (WNS) The Federal
Council has ordered the immedi-
ate dissolution of two anti-Sem-
itic and Pro-Nazi organizations,
the Society for Authoritarian
Democracy and the National So-
cialist Swiss Workers Party, it
was announced here.
The action was taken after
Government investigators deter-
mined that pamphlets attacking
Swiss authorities and the princi-
ples of democracy were distrib-
uted throughout the country by
the two Nazi organizations
It was reported that Ernst
Leonhardt, head of the Society
for Authoritarian Democracy and
the author of a number of anti-
Semitic pamphlets, is now in
Germany.
J. 0. C. EEEDS
New York (WNS)The daily
feeding of 250.000 needy Jews in
Poland was reported here by Jo-
seph C Hyman, executive vice-
chairman of the American Jew-
ish Joint Distribution Commit-
tee, on the basis of a cabled re-
port from Kraku received by the
Committee in New York.
Six hundred and fifty soup
kitchens and feeding stations in
346 separate localities throughout
the Gouvernement Generale area
of Poland are serving one meal
daily to a quarter million Jewish
victims of war and persecution.
Supervised by officials of the J.
D. C.'s branches in Warsaw and
Krakau. the relief program in-
cludes the care of 50.000 desti-
tute Jewish children in institu-
tions and private families.
Under the control of Toz. cen-
tral Jewish medical organization
of Poland which receives its
funds from the J. D. C. 200
health stations, hospitals, clinics
and sanatoria serve the medical
needs ol Polish Jews The num-
ber of those presently being as-
sisted represents a reduction from
the peaks set earlier in the year.
Until May. 1940. the J. D. C. was
daily assisting up to 400.000 Pol-
ish Jewish war victims, adults
and children Lack of funds ne-
cessitated contraction of this pro-
gram to its present level
More than 11,500.000 zlotys
were expended in cash by the
Warsaw and Krakau offices of
the J. D. C. from the beginning
of 1940 to October 1. At the av-
erage rate of exchange which
the J. D. C. obtains in clearing
its remittances to Poland,
represents over $1,150,000.

Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency!
Mapay, Palestine's Jewry's Labor
Party, inaugurated its new Arlcs-
oroff Building, dedicated to the
memory of Dr. Chaim Arlesoroff.
labor leader, and Jewish Agency
executive member who was mur-
dered while walking on the sands
of this city's seashore in June,
1933.
The dedication ceremonies in-
cluded the unveiling of a bas
relief of Arlesoroff. and a eulogy
delivered by Moshe Shertok. head
of the Political Department of the
Jewish Agency Executive.
An exhibition prepared in or-
der to demonstrate 20 years of
upbuilding effort in Eretz Israel,
was opened in the Main Hall of
the Building.
TO BE DISMISSED
Bucharest (WNS)The com-
plete economic strangulation of
Rumania's Jewish population
was foreshadowed here with the
announcement that all private
enterprises and factories must
discharge their Jewish employees
regardless of position and quali-
fications, by Dec. 31, 1941.
The announcement, published
in Bucharest newspapers, stated
that Jewish war veterans and
Jews who rendered meritorious
service to Rumania would be the
sole exceptions to the blanket or-
der.
While the decree gives Ruman-
ian employers a full year in
which to discharge their Jewish
help, many employers have al-
ready complied with the new an-
ti-Jewish regulations. Jewish
participation in Rumanian indus-
try is rapidly becoming non-ex-
istent.
Since previous decrees have
driven Jews off their own farms
and lands, dispossessed them
from their homes, and denied
them the right to practice their
professions, the Jewish popula-
tion faces a future limitod to
begging for alms.
In Iron Guard circles it was re-
ported that the Government
would permit Jews to enlist in
labor battalions in return for a
subsistence allowance. It ap-
pears likely, however, that ser-
vice in the labor battalions will
be compulsory for all Jewish
males between the ages of 16 and
50.
Indicative of the Nazi occupa-
tion of Rumania was the recent
decree elevating the Nazi swas-
tika to the same status as the
Rumanian war flag. German
troops in Rumania are now the
virtual masters of the country.
DR. EINSTEIN TO HEAD
FRIENDS COMMITTEE
New York (WNS)Professor
Albert Einstein will serve as
chairman of the National Council
of the American Friends of the
Hebrew University.
JEWS REPORTED
PARTS OF FRANCE
bondon (WNS)More than 10,-
000 Jews have been compelled
to leave their homes in the Ger-
man Rhineland and move to un-
occupied France, it was reliably
reported here.
About 6,500 of the German
Jews have been quartered at a
special center in the Basses Py-
renees, which is now being com-
pleted. Among the Jews at the
center are 2,000 between the
ages of 60 and 104 years. Two
of the refugees are centenar-
ians.
A French official said that the
aim of the Government was to
give these Jews a place to stay
until they can find refuge some-
where It was made clear that
foreign Jews who obtain permis-
sion to enter other countries will
receive every cooperation from
the Vichy Government.
Meanwhile, nearly 20.000 Jews
among the French-speaking pop-
ulation, face immediate expul-
sion from Lorraine as a result of
Vice Premier Pierre Laval's
agreement with Nazi officials for
the expulsion of all French-speak-
ing inhabitants from Lorraine.
According to reports from un-
occupied France about 6,000 per-
sons arrive daily from Lorraine.
The refugees arrive penniless
and in need of clothing. It was
generally agreed that unless Jew-
ish relief organizations come to
the aid of the Jews expelled
from Lorraine they will face a
winter of starvation.
FRANCIS BIDDLE URGES
TOLERANCE TO ALIENS
New York (WNS)Deploring
the confusion and emotion gen-
crated in the United States by
the European war, Francis Bid-
die, solicitor general of the Unit-
ed States, urged a more tolerant
attitude toward aliens at the 16th
triennial convention of the Na-
tional Council of Jewish Women.
Mr. Biddle told the 800 dele-
gates and visitors from 40 states
that "one policy we must shape
in the immedite future is what
our attitude should be toward
refugees from Europe."
"Until 1924 immigrants came
to us faster than we could absorb
them." he said. "The quota sys-
tem was designed to slow that
process, without abandoning al-
together those streams of new
blood to our mixed population.
We have not abandoned that pol-
icy.
The delegates adopted resolu-
tions supporting the president's
program to keep the United
States out of war, and favoring
admission of refugee children
from the European war zone to
the United States over and above
the quota for permanent resi-
dence.

TRANSFUSION
By Al S*l
STRENGTH IS MIGHT
Mr. Edward I. Kaufmann. president of the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, has designated the five week period ending
with Chanukah as Zionist Membership Month. In his state-
ment proclaiming the month, he appealed for unity and the sub-
merging of all differences to the primary task of concentrating
upon the efforts for the upbuilding of the Jewish Homeland in
Palestine.
A goal of 150,000 members has been set by the present ad-
ministration of the Z. O. A. This is by no means an unreason-
able figure. In ratio to the 5,000,000 Jews in this country, it only
constitutes 3% of the Jewish population. 150,000 members,
therefore, would represent the very minimum reguired to dem-
onstrate to American public opinion and the world at large
that the Zionist program which seeks to rehabilitate our home-
less people on its own soil is supported by all segments of
American Jewry.
The attainment of this goal should therefore be the concern
of every American Jew who seeks to render constructive help
to his brethren in need and who desires to help in providing a
home and security for hundreds of thousands of our persecuted
brethren who look to Palestine as their only ray of hope.
Since the outbreak of the war, the news that filters through
the Palestine military censorship has been scant. Nevertheless,
the dispatches that reach this country serve to convey to us a
picture indicating that despite the war and in the face of con-
siderable obstacles the Jewish community of Palestine carries
on uninterruptedly its daily tasks and doggedly continues with
the upbuilding of the country. From the various bulletins and
Palestine news releases which recently reached our desk, we
selected brief items as reflective of the progress being recorded
in Palestine, now one of the principal targets of totalitarian ag-
gression in the Near East.
We read of the building of a large warehouse at the Keren
Hayesed settlement of Kfar Hahoresh.
Another news item relates that a new glass factory was es-
tablished in Richon le Zion and has issued a call for skilled
workers. We also read with great interest a report that an-
other group of Jewish immigrants from Yemen reached Pales-
tine, which is additional conclusive proof that Great Britain is
in full control of the Red Sea.
Of considerable interest is an item telling of the admission
of 50 more Jewish refugees into the colony of Ain Harod, largest
Keren Hayesed settlement in Emek Israel, which recently
marked the 19th anniversary of its founding.
These reports are climaxed by an item that the total hold-
ings of the Jewish National Fund now has reached 520,000
dunams and that the Jewish Agency for Palestine has complet-
ed plans for the establishment of 15 new settlements in the com-
ing months on land that has already been selected and acguired.
More than 50 new industrial enterprises have been launched in
1940.
These reports are indicative of the scope of the efforts that
are now being made with the help of the national Palestine
funds in extending the Jewish positions in Palestine in order to
make possible the absorption of additional large numbers of
Jewish refugees.
It is clear that the Jewish community of Palestine is doing its
share, perhaps more than its rightful share toward the solution
of the Jewish refugee problem in this.the most crucial time in
the history of our people and mankind. The Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, which is the instrumentality of American Jewry
for the upbuilding of the Jewish Homeland, is asking American
Jews, who are fortunately situated in this country of freedom
and democracy, to fulfill their obligations, which, considered in
terms of real sacrifice, amounts to so little. The duty of every
Jew, who is not yet a member of the Zionist Organization, is
therefore clear.
Now, according to a dispatch
from London, the British recent-
ly captured a tough Nazi p'lot
who had been wounded. He
abused nurses, doctors and all
England. Yet they were most
generous with him. They gave
him a blood transfusion, put him
i na nice clean bed "Now, my
lad." said the doctor, "you have
two pints of good Jewish blood
in you. We hope it will improve
your manners.

I have further information
about this matter. It came to
me last evening when I was sit-
ting in a large chair at my fire
place. You know what a pleas-
ant wood fire does to a man in
a big soft chair. He sits there
following the bright tracery of
the flame and all at once his
mind departs from the chair and
pursues a gay spiral up the flue.
Up through the flue to the
stars! There, among the stars.
the mind learns many things that
are unknown to it in its earth-
bound state; for the stars, as
(Airy one knows, see everything.
From the stars I learned the
seuel of the story of the tough
Nazi into whom two pints of
Jewish blood were poured.
His name, as I ascertained, is
Kuno Hanswurst, a flight lieu-
tenant. He comes from Prussian
stock. His father was the famous
Colonel Manfred Hanswurst who
in his youth, when he was a lieu-
tenant, was a great fellow on the
Unter-den-Linden in Berlin. On
this renowned thoroughfare he
cut a wide swath as he pushed
civilians into the gutter, in ac-
cordance with the old Prussian
guard custom.
This shows how naturally Lieu-
tenant Kuno Hanswurst came by
his rudeness.
Among the stars I also discov-
ered the nature of the blood that
was injected into Lieutenant
Hanswurst. There was a quiet.
lambent star that reminded me
of the gentle eyes of some phil-
osopher. This star told me.
"What I am about to tell you
does not mean that all Jews have
the best blood." the star was
careful to explain. "Not all Jew-
ish blood is good and not all
German blood is bad. Blood, my
friend, is individual, not racial, in
its characteristics. There is no
group of blood of which it may
be said that this is all good or
that is all bad."
Well, it seems that the blood
that was transfused into Kuno
Hanswurst came from a man
named Hyman Shapiro. Mr. Sha-
piro was a refugee in London and
when the British decided to put
all aliens from enemy countries
into camps he had to go.
To the camp he toolc his Tal-
mudic volumes in order to aug-
ment his knowledge of the Law
during the long period of his
leisure away from everything.
Yet, though in in those studies
Mr. Shapiro found great enjoy-
ment, he also felt troubled.
He asked himself: "To what
good is it that I take unto my-
self this Law of compassion and
mercy and loving-kindness since
I can not apply it in the world?
This dreadful world certainly
needs this Law, considering how
horribly things have been go-
ing ,"
Mr. Shapiro walked up and
down the length of the camp,
thinking of ways to make the
Law widely useful in his con-
fined state. He wished he had
telephatic means by which he
transfer it to the hearts of the
arrogant. One day he watched
a Nazi bomber flying over the
camp and with all his might tried
to direct thoughts of compassion,
mercy and loving kindness to the
heart of the aviator.
Nevertheless, the aviator drop-
ped a load of bombs on an or-
phan asylum nearby.
Suddenly it came to Mr. Sha-
piro: He would give him blood
for transfusions to the wounded.
To do this certainly would be a
wide and righteous application of
the commandmants of the Holy
Law.
Not that Mr. Shapiro was vain
in the matter of his blood. He
entertained no idea that there
was any special essence of vir-
tue in Jewish blood. He knew
only that when a well man's

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHINEAS J. BIRON)
ECHOES OF THE WAR
Hitler's Balkan efforts to ciose the mouth of the Danube have
inspired a local wiseacre to inguire whether the Beautiful .3]ue
river has been expressing anti-Nazi opinions ... Dr. Kurt von
Schuschnigg. last Chancellor of the late Austrian Republic, who
has been variously reported as a prisoner in a Nazi concentra-t
tion camp and hopessly insane, is living guite well and happy*
in Munich His wife, also well and happy, is with him
there What with Italian soldiers being routed by the
Greeks, the Italian navy being smashed by the British, and Ital-
ian, planes being brought down by the dozen in England, we
can understand the skeptical attitude of the Italian people on
the guestion of their own military efficiency They're par-
ticllarly unimpressed by their anti-aircraft defense, which a
credited with much damage to Italian property and to whic'*
the death of General Balbo is attributed ... It now appears
that it was Italian anti-aircraft guns which shot down the plane
in which Balbo was making an inspection flight ... A refuqee
of our acguaintance tells us that Field Marshal Hermann Goer-
ing. Hitler's second in command, has a half-brother who is a
non-Aryan and who was one of Vienna's leading film execu-
tives for years And that when the Nazis marched into
Vienna a couple of years ago special orders were issued pro-!
viding that the half-Jewish half-brother of the Nazi air chief was
not to be molested in any way.
REFUGEES ALL
Among the unfortunates held in French concentration camps
now that Hitler is the boss of what used to be the land of Lib-
erty, Eguality and Fraternity are many thousands of Spaniards
who were forced to flee their country after the victory of the
Franco Fascists ... A movement to eguip American rescue
ships to bring these fighters for democracy to Mexico, which
will be glad to welcome them, has now been launched ....
Leader of the movement is Helen Keller, the lady who has
proved to all the world that strength of spirit can overcome all
handicaps ... If you're interested in supporting this "Ameri-
can Rescue Ship Mission" just address your contribution to
Miss Keller, at 200 Fifth Avenue, New York They say that
the reason why the Nazis don't want ex-King Carol of Rumania
and Madga Lupescu to come to the New World is that Hitler is
afraid the two of them might tell America the truth about whatj
is going on in the Balkans Madga, incidentally, has been<
handling the former monarch's business affairs, and his large
properties in Canada and Brazil are held mostly in her name.
RANSOM UNPAID
Frau Alma Mahlor-Werfel, Aryan wife of novelist Frani
Werfel, who together with her husband has at last found refuge
in this country, attributes their escape from the hands of the
Nazis to Adolf Hitler's love of music ... As the widow of the
famous composer Gustav Mahler, Frau Werfel has a valuable
collection of musical memorabilia, most of which she of course
had to leave in Vienna Among the major pieces she res-
cued, however, was the original score of Anton Bruckner's
Third Symphony And Hitler greatly admires this work,
and would like to own the manuscript Through intermedi-
aries he offered Frau Werfel SI0,000 for the score She,
however, refused to sell it to him What's more, she let the
Nazis understand that if even a finger were laid on Werfel she
would immediately dispose of the manuscript in such a way|
that Hitler would never be able to get hold of it ... So the!
Nazis desisted from touching the Jewish author, and Werfel and 1
his wife and the manuscript are all safe in the United States
now.
YOU SHOULD KNOW
A systematic effort will soon be made to feed some thou-1
sands of starving Jewish families in Poland The plan i
to send fo<>d packages from Yugoslaviaprovided, of course
that Yugoslavia remains neutral The British Red Cross
will be the beneficiary of the rare book auction that Philadel-
phia's Bibliophile Dr. A. S. W. Rosenbach will conduct at Ne j
York's Hotel Plaza next month Among the sale items will
be original manuscripts by Professor Albert Einstein, ThomO
Mann and other notables There's a movement on foot ,
issue in English a library of a hundred titles to include the best
of the Yiddish literature of the last seventy-five years.
THIS AND THAT
The guota of 150,000 new members that the Zionist OrganiK",
tion has set itself is considered an excessively optimistic fig*"*
by experts 30.000 additional members during the nextj
year should be considered a stupendous achievement
Pierre van Paasen paid a flying visit to New York last week m |
between stages of his cross-country lecture tour ... hi 1W
days he not only delivered three regular lectures but also too*

"VAAD HAKASHRUS"
At a recent Administrative
Board meeting of the Beth David
Congregation, the president and
members went on record endors-
ing a "V'aad Hakashrus," and
forming a board to work jointly
with other interested groups in
Miami. It would be lack of pro-
priety, and lack of decency on
the part of any Jew or Jewess to
abstain from supporting such a
movement.
It is due time that the Kosher
butchers of Miami have direct
supervision under the guidance
of the Rabbis, so that all care-
lessness, doubt, and wilful or un-
wilful negligence shall be elim-
inated. Upon the completion of
the program of the "V'aad Hak-
ashrus," the Jewish public will
be notified concerning the

JUNIOR CONGREGATION
Our Junior Congregation op-
ened its first season with a large
attendance last Saturday morn-
ing despite the inclement weath-
er. This service will be held
throughout the winter at 9 a. m.
in the Talmud Torah Building,
under the leadership of Mr. Mor-
ris Kleiner.
Children of Hebrew School age
able to read from the siddur are
urged to attend this service. Boys
and girls are equally invited.
Prayer books and Bibles with
English translations are used, so
that each child can understand
each prayer and Biblical read-
ing.
Young men. 13 years of age
and over, are the leaders of the
Junior Congregation, and meet
each Wednesday at 8 p. m. at the
synagogue. As the Minnionaires
they plan to resume Sunday
morning services shortly.
Mr. Schechter of the London
Arms Hotel has offered to supply
refreshments to all worshipers at
the Junior Congregation this Sat-
urday. We thank him heartily
and hope others will follow his
lead.
TEACHER TO BE WED
Our Congregation and Sister-
hood join the faculty and stu-
dents of our Religious School in
wishing Miss Josephine Raxin
and Mr. Louis Adler a long life
of wedded bliss. Miss Raxin has
been a member of our school fac-
ulty for the past few years and
has been our school pianist from
the day of her arrival. Despite
her marriage she intends to re-
main with us. We know that
her children of the school and
all others will be glad to hear of
this resolution. We wish the
butchers who are in accord with
the workings of this board and
those who are not in accord.
We feel certain that the patrons
who purchase Kosher meats or
fowl will back this movement.
"Hefkaerus," criticism and
doubts must be eliminated.

London (WNS)As a precau-
tion against the intensified Nazi
air attacks on London. Jewish
religious leaders have removed
the holy scrolls and other sacred
objects from many of the syna-
gogues in London's battered East
End district.
The holy scrolls were removed
to places deemed safe from fu-
ture Nazi air attacks. German
raids on the predominantly Jew-
ish East End section alone since
the start of the war have result-
ed in the demolition of one syn-
agogue and the partial destruc-

Arrangements have been made
for Jews left without a syna-
gogue to observe the Sabbath
and holidays at other houses of
worship. In some instances
churches have been placed at the
disposal of congregations whose
temples were destroyed.

blood is transfused into a sick
man's blood there is a healing re-
action. Mr. Shapiro became a
blood donor and bottle after bot-
tle of his blood went to the hos-
pitals.
Yet, as the star told me. it
happens that Mr. Shapiro's blood
does have something in its own
individual character. I haven't
space enough to describe the
whole geneology of Mr. Shapiro,
as given me by the star which
has seen his generation through
thousands of years It is enough
to 5?y, tnat he Kes back as far
as Malachi.
"Yes," said the star. "Malachi
was a forefather of his The
prophet Malachi. You may have
heard of him."
"To be sure!" I remem-
ber, quoted from him: "Have we not
all one Father? Hath not one
] reated us? Why do ,..-, deal
nerously every man against
his brother, profaning the cov-
enont of our fath. rs."
j "Mr. Shapiro had the blood of
; Malachi. the star said. "The
i blood of Malachi was poured into
Lieutenant Kuno Hanswurst."
*
In the light of the stars are not
only the images of what has been
but in them may also be read
the way of things to come, as ev-
ery astrologer knows. The star
told me what happened long af-
ter the blood of Malachi had been
transfused into Lieutenant Hans-
wurst.
The war had ended and Lieu-
tenant Hanswurst was released
from his prison and return, d to
Germany. His native land lav
humbled in devastation, its old
leaders had fled. All that was
left of them w. re the hates they
had given their people who now
turned murderously against each
other.
In this tragic hour there was
heard in Germany one calm
voice. It spoke of righteousness
and peace and the luvme-kind-
ness that men owe to one anoth-
er. One day it was magnified
through a loud speaker so big
that all Berlin heard it. It spoke
the words of Malachi: "Have we
not all one Father? Hath not one
God created us? Why do we deal
treacherously every man against
his brother, profaning the coven-
ant of our fathers?"
It said that Germany had fall-
en into this degradation because
it had been treacherous to the
Fatherhood of God and the
brotherhood of man. This was
the sin of Germany.
The voice was the voice of
Kuno Hanswurst who had taken
unto himself the blood of Mala-
chi which had come to him
through Mr. Shapiro.
The people thought there
migt be some good in what Kuno
Hanswurst said. They were tired
of hating and killing by which
they thought they could take the
whole world; it had brought
them nothinc but hunger. The
novel idea of brotherhood might
:be worth trying; at least it
couldn't hurt them as much as
their hungry bellies hurt already.
Anway, it might provide them
with something to eat.
So Kuno Hansywurst became
the new fuehrer. Under the ban-
jner of Malachi Germans wpre al-
lowed to march back into the
society of the human-kind. Mr.
[Shapiro, whose soul had yearned
| so much to be of some good in
the world, was fulfilled.

So the star told me.
