OF
VICTIMS
Haifa iWNS-Palcor Agency)
Saddened throngs lined the
streets of this harbor city to
watch the melancholy funeral
procession of 13 of the 21 men
and women who were killed
when their battered ship, the
Ipatria, exploded just before she
was to weigh anchor for another
British possession.
The 13 who were interred in
the mass ceremony were the on-
ly ones identified after the bodies
of 21 had been recovered from
the wreckage or washed ashore
as the ship settled to the bottom.
Survivors joined wholeheart-
edly in praise of the heroism
of the British soldiers and sail-
ors who rushed to their aid, sav-
ing hundreds of passengers who
had jumped overboard immedi-
ately after the explosion rent the
ship apart.
Following the explosion, 1,530
l of the survivors of the original
group of 1,771 were transferred
to the camp at Athlit, where they
were interned.
As soon as the tragedy was
reported. Kliahu Dobkin, deputy
director of the Immigration De-
partment of the Jewish Agency.

ASKS FOR TRAINING OF
COMMUNAL WORKERS
Washington (WNS)A Univer-
sity of Jewish Studios to train
all who engage in professional
Jewish activtics is advocated by
Rabbi David Polish, director of
the B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tion at Cornell University, in
the December issue of The Na-
tional Jewish Monthly.
"This University," he writes.
"would consist of various colleges
which would train students for
the rabbinate, social work, edu-
cation, etc. Only graduates of
the university would be engaged
or supported in the communities
where they would be called upon
to function."
All too often, Rabbi Polish de-
clares in his article, Jewish
workers, teachers, journalists
and other communal servants not
only lack an adequate Jewish
background, but fall far below
professional standards in their
fields as well.
The goal of the proposed Uni-
versity would be "the creation of
a united pledge for positive and
creative Jewish life in America."

protest against the decision of
the British government to di par;
1.771 Jewish refugees who ar-
rived at Haifa port without legal
status to some unnamed British
colony.
Pushing the dispute over Pin-

national unity into the back-
ground, the Palestine Jewish
community immediately ordered
a general Stoppage of work and
business. Work in all factories
was suspended as a protest
against the deportation ordi r

British officials said that 1.062

barked at a Black Sea port early
in October, having come from
Austria. Slovakia, Bohemia. Hun-
gary and Rumania.
British police launches inter-
cepted the two ships as they
neared the Palestine coast. Both
ships were reported to be unsea-
worthy. while the sanitary condi-
tions and food and water supply-
were described as appalling.
It was reported that the ships
were shunted from port to port,

Greece the mother of democracy,
Rabbi David de Sola Pool de-
clared at a special service for
the people of Greece at the
Spanish and Portuguese Syna-
gogue that Greece was fighting
to defend all democracies, in-
cluding the United States.
The special services were at-
tended by Archbishop Athena-
goras, prelate of the Greek Or-
thodox Church in North and
South America; Nicholas G.
Lely, Greek Consul General in
New York, and Spire Tsamis.
commercial attache to the Greek
legation in Washington. Thirty
members of the Alexander the
Great Post of the Greek War
Veterans also attended.
Dr. Pool stressed that Greece
may be defeated by Italy's nu-
merically stronger forces or by a
Nazi invasion, but the spirit of
the country will never perish.
He paid tribute to the Greek
Army's successes to date but
warned that the conflict was by
no means over.
animous approval of the request
of Dr. Kaplan and the recom-
mendation of the board of direc-
tors, was resultant.
Dr. Kaplan's accomplishments
in tiie Greater Miami community
number many, and are well
known to Jewish residents in
Florida, who are acquainted with
Ins work in Interfaith move-
-. at the University of Mi-
ami, and his general leadership.
The service rendered to Temple
Israel in particular, and the Jew-
ish community in general, were
commended in the several re-
ports and resolutions read at the
meeting.

Dr. Kaplan in 1926. and in his
fifteen years of service and lead-

I VICTIMS OF
ANTI-JEWISH BILL
Sofia. (WNS)Bulgaria's 50.-
000 Jews became the latest vic-
tims of Hitler's fanatical anti-
Semitism when the Bulgarian
Parliament passed the drastic
anti-Jewish bill, excluding Jews
from the government, municipal
and army services.
Passage of the anti-Jewish bill,
the first in Bulgarias history,
came as a stunning blow to the
Jewish community since in-
formed circles predicted only a
month ago that the Fascist-
minded members of Parliament
would never rally sufficient vot-
ers necessary for the bills adop-
tion.
These same circles said that
passage of the bill, which was
introduced last Oct. 7 on the in-
itiative of Interior Minister Petar
Gabrevski after its approval by
the cabinet, signifies that Bul-
garian leaders have yielded to
Nazi pressure in the Balkans.
In addition to barring Jews
from government and army posts
the bill prohibits Jews from own-
ing land and limits the number
of Jews in the professions to the
proportion of Jews in the entire
population.
The bill bars Jews from the na-
tion's film and theatrical enter-
prises, and from the newspaper
and publishing fields. The bill
stipulates also that persons of
Jewish descent may not employ-
Bulgarian servants. Drastic pen-
alties were provided for viola-
tion of the anti-Jewish regula-
tions.
The Jewish population of Bul-
garia is for the most part very
poor, playing a very unimport-
ant role in the country's politic-
al and economic life. There are
no Jews in Government posts or
in high army posts.
JEWS BEGIN LIFE
Lisbon (WNS)The clock was
turned back several centuries in
Warsaw last week when approxi-
mately 500.000 Jews were locked
up in a ghetto, blocked off from
the rest of the city by an eight-
foot concrete wall, it was learned
here.
Nazi authorities have ordered
Warsaw's entire Jewish popula-
tion to move into the ghetto,
which lies in the central district
of the former Polish capital. The
housing shortage in the ghetto is
so severe that as many as seven
persons must share one room.
The concrete wall surrounds
more than 100 city blocks and
closes off 200 streets and street
car lines. The huge wall in-
cludes 18 entrances but persons
wishing to enter or leave the
ghetto must secure a special pass.
Even non-Jews who want to en-
ter the district must receive
special permission.
When announcement was made
last winter of the proposed con-
struction of the wall, the Nazis
denied that the measure was an-
ti-Semitic but maintained that
it was strictly a health move de-
signed to protect Jews and Poles
alike from epidemics likely to
follow the war.
Henceforth. Warsaw Jews must
conduct all their businesses inside
the ghetto walls. Visits to the
outside city will be permitted on-
ly on special occasions.
RUTENBERGACT
SPLITS YISKUV
Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agen-
cy)Flung into discussion at the
most critical period of the Yi-
shuv's history. Pinchas Runten-
berg's policy of reorganizing the
administration of Jewish Pales-
tine through the selection of an
"elite" group has split the com-
munity, with the great majority
opposed to the famous engineer's
: i nera'm of reform.
This was made clear through a
series of editorials and party pro-
nouncements from the various
wings of political and economic
thought.
The Palestine Central Commit-
tee of the General Zionists' Fed-
eration adopted a resolution ex-
pressing regret at Rutenberg's--
proposal as representing "a de-
viation from democratic princi-
ples as well as from the funda-
mental premise that the world
Zionist movement and not only
Palestine Jewry is the custodian
of the Zionist interests involved
in the Yishuv's affairs." The gen-
eral Zionist declaration asserted
that "unity can be achieved in
the Yishuv only through a broad
coalition of all responsible ele-
ments."

On Sunday. November 10, at 1
p m Rabbi Max Folshin of the
Civic Center Synagogue and the
Radio City Synagogue, officiat-
ed at the unveiling of a tomb-
stone at Beth David Cemetery
on Long Island. This might
seem like an unusual beginning
for this column, but there's quite
a story that we thourht you'c"
be interested in hearing.
Not long ago the Jewish Phil-
osopher received a pathetic let-
ter from a woman whose hus-
band had been dead for three
years The Jewish Philosopher
is Mr C. Israel Lutsky, execu-
tive secretary of the Federation
f Ukrainian Jews and field sec-
retary for the American Jewish
Congress. Mr. Lutsky broad-
casts over a New York radio
station every day. This letter
that Mr. Lutsky received told
him that this woman had been
unable to afford a stone for the
frave of her husband. Because
of all this she found it too de-
pressing to visit the cemetery
more than once At last, how-
ever, in response to the continued
pleading of her little daughter,
she returned to the cemetery
with her, only to find that they

DESERVED RECOGNITION
Coming as pleasant news this week was the announce-
ment by the officers and directors of Temple Israel wherein
they conferred upon Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan the honor of being
Rabbi Emeritus of the Temple.
Recognizing the wholehearted devotion and faithfulness
he has given in his activities while filling the pulpit of the
Temple as spiritual leader, it was a deserving action enabling
Dr. Kaplan to relieve himself of the bulk of the tremendous
burdens he has carried and to slacken the rapid pace he set
during these years. As the spiritual head and leader of the
large, influential and active Temple Israel which he has guided
for the past 15 years, coming here from Cincinnati in 1926.
Dr. Kaplan was recognized as an ambassador of good will.
Always in the forefront of every movement that would aid in
cementing our relationships with our neighbors he assisted
greatly in making the path of Judaism in our city an easier
one to travel and through which to achieve and earn for Jewry
that place of respect to which it is entitled. Through his efforts
and continued work. Dr. Kaplan was one of those responsible
for the formation of the Round Table Conference of Jews and
Christians, active to this very day. He lectured at the Univer-
sity of Miami and was chosen to head the Rabbinical Associa-
tion of the State of Florida being drafted to serve another term
of this group which he now heads.
Devoting a career to being a rabbi in the true sense of the
word carries with it absolute sacrifices, many very great. It
carries with it innumerable hardships and difficulties. It is a
vocation that rarely sees its virtues rewarded and often finds
its sincere actions harshly condemned.
Knowing how seldom and few are the occasions where
spiritual leaders are rewarded for this devotion to this life-
time of labor with its meager recompense, it is truly gratifying
to realize that as a respected and loved servant of our com-
munity he has been rightfully and fittingly recognized. We
are pleased because we know that Dr. Kaplan, now in his
prime of life, will be able to see the fruits of his labor and the
creations of his effort and together with Mrs. Kaplan will be in
a position to enjoy many years of happiness with us, knowing
that his guiding hand will always be present where the good
and benefit of our people are concerned.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PfflNEAS J. BIRON)
MEET YOUR OBLIGATIONREGISTER!
To sustain the principles of our great Democracy, every
American Citizen must enjoy the gratifying privilege of the
ballot which gives a voice in Government. If this privilege
should ever be denied, it would definitely destroy our Democ-
racy. We should always be mindful of this privilege and feel
ever grateful that it is afforded to all of us. Therefore, those
of us who are derelict in exercising their right to ballot may
rightfully be condemned unworthy of Citizenship.
To be a true and loyal American, each and every one
must register and vote at election. We stress the importance
to every Citizen of the City of Miami to register for the next
City election to be held next May. All previous registrations
on Miami registration books have been declared null and void
so that all Citizens of the City of Miami must register between
now and the closing date of the registration. December 21, 1940.
The registration books are open in the office of the City
Clerk, Mr. Frank J. Kelly, on the third floor of the Court House
building.
This registration is not to be confused with the County and
State registrations which are renewed every two years. The
present Miami registration is intended to be a permanent one.
Well, the election is all over
and has fallen deep into the
abysses of time. So I may safe-
ly speak of it. During the weeks
of the campaign it took all my
self-restraint to hold me back
from utterance on the subject.
But with admirably control
I said to myself. No, Segal, not
a word! Not a word until its
all over for several weeks. You
can't afford to be publicly the
partisan who sticks his neck out.
He who sticks his neck out may
get his head chopped off.
Even now. weeks later. I am
so cautious as not to declare pub-
licly in this column how I voted,
though whoever looked over my
shoulder in the secrecy of the
voting place could have detect-
ed me voting for Roosevelt. Eut
that is a matter strictly confi-
dential between me and my con-
science.
There was a certain day \fi thi?
campaign when I almost was
consumed by anger which I could
not allpw myself to get out of my
system at the time. Had I done
so I would have been called a
New Deal agent using the col-
umns of the Jewish press to
further a political cause.
What made me so angry was
to receive a certain pamphlet
from the National Republican
Committee in New York. It is
not that I am an intolerant man
who resents being approached
by pamphlets of contrary opin-
ion. But this political pamphlet
came to me as a Jew; it brought
me the appeal of other Jews who.
as Jews, attempted to influence
my vote as an American citi-
zen.
I would not have been so an-
gry about it had it been a forth-
right appeal to Jews by the Re-
publican National Committee
Then I would have said. "Well.
these people don't know any bet-
ter. I must forgive them."
But this pamphlet contained
several dozen statements of po.
litical affiliation signed by Jews.
Nor were they Jews of whom it
might have been said. "The dam-
fools! It takes all kinds of Jews
to make the community. These
don't seem to know any better
than to lend their Jewish names
to political purposes."
The signers of this pamphlet
big rabbis, big lawyers, big busi-
ness peoplebig Jewish le iders.
It was quite obvious that they
had been selected for this politi-
cal purpose precisely because of
their leadership in Israel.
They were of that group that
has been heard rightfully deplor-
ing when Judaism has been seen
mixing in politics. They have
despised the little ward-heeler
who employs his Judaism for
vote-getting. Their finely bal-
anced sense of propriety suffers
acutely whenever they hear of a
police judge or some other non-
Jewish politician being the guest
of honor at the dedication of a
synagogue.
They have always been the
foremost champions of the idea
that it is prostitution to lend the
Jewish name to any purpose of
politics. They are of those who
are often heard insisting that
the Jews are not a people separ-
ate from the communion of de-
mocracy who must be separately
appealed to.
They have always been quick
to point out that there is no
Jewish vote and have resented
as insult any appeal that sug-
gested that there is a Jewish
vote.
Yet here they were addressing
me through the agency of a po-
litical committee, saying to me
in effect: "Mr. Segal, you are
a Jew and we are Jews. Breth-
ren, in fact. Since we are all
Jews together you must believe
us when we tell you that Mr.
Willkie is the man for presi-
dent."
I would have resented them
as much if. as Jews, they had
come to tell me that Roosevelt
was the man that I, as a Jew,
should vote for. In fact, I had
no partisan feeling against Mr.
Willkie. I regarded him, and
still regard him, as an honest,
able and patriotic citizen and I
wouldn't have felt any pain had
he been elected president.
Nor did I hold it against him
that these prominent Jews Jew-

WAR ECHOES
American correspondents in Berlin don't like to attend the
Goebbels gab-fests even though extra food ration cards are
issued to all present at the press conferences One leporter,
however, goes every timeon the theory that any extra food he
eats means so much less for the German army ... In Germany

dog meat for human consumption, it's now a case of dog eat
doq Siqn reported on the marquee of a bombed London
movie house: "Smash Hit Great Gigantic Goering" And
from London too comes the story of the old Jewish woman who
after spending the night in an air-raid shelter, finally went out
to look for her home in the Whitechapel district ... As she
walked through streets strewn with the wreckage of Nazi-
blasted tenements she was seen to shake her head slowly
from side to side "Ai-ai-ai," she muttered to herself, "Jfr

Fifth Column to do the trick for him in Greece Which show?
that II Duce doesn't know his Iliad Because if he did he'
wouldn't have expected a Trojan Horse to fool the Greeks, who
invented the beast some three thousand years ago During
the last world war "sauer kraut" became "liberty cabbage"
and this time the exclamation "Gesundheit!" with which one
greets a sneeze, is gradually giving way to "God Bless Amer-

Note to Lucius Beebe, glamor-boy reporter, who insists he
saw only about a dozen beards on Manhattan streets in the
years before the refugees streamed in: Did you ever go down
to Delancey Street, the most perfect field of all for the game of
beaver? Rene Kraus, Austrian biographer of Winston
Churchill, is leaving these shores for England, where he er k\
pects to write a book on RAF ... In case you want to kno**f
whatever happened to the autobiographed Mussolini photo that
movie mogul Walter Warner used to prize in other days, it's
now hanging in an unoccupied office, with its face to the wall.
... If you're wintering at one of the popular Florida resorts,
look out for Axis Fifth Columners, who are expected to be quite
active there And Uncle Sam tells us that one of the Fifth
Column's pet disguises is still the guise of refugees from Naz-
ism ... So many South American newspapers are controlled
by Nazi interests that U. S. advertiserrs in those papers have
adopted the plan of doing some private detective work to dis-
cover whether such control exists before they place their con-
tracts for space.
SCHOLASTIC NOTES
Professor Erwin R. Goodenough of Yale has dedicated his
new book. "An Introduction to Philip Judaeus." to the staff of
the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, who in person
demonstrate that Christian ethic has its source in Judaism
At Indian University, we learn from Dean C. E. Edmondson's rt '
port, the highest scholastic record during this year's Spring Ses-
sion was piled up by the Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity, while
second place went to Phi Beta Delta These two are the only
Jewish fraternities on the compus Note to the Publicity De-
partment of the College of the City of New York: Max I. Kohler,

IN THE SYNAGOGUE
Due to the splendid increase
in the number of daily worship-
ers it was decided to conduct
two Shachris services daily ex-
cepting Sunday. The first min-
yon meets at 7:15 a. m. and the
second at 8:00 a. m. We are
happy to announce this innova-
tion because many of our peo-
ple who joined were unable to
attend the minyon and can now
be accommodated and because it
bespeaks the continuous growth
of our activities. The Sholos
Sudos circle also makes fine pro-
gress and each Shabbos a diffe-
ent member is the host to the
group. Last Shabbos Mr. I Ros-
engartcn contributed the Shalos
Sudos while the host this week
is Mr. S. Kaplan.

er, Mr. Harry Lubel of Mobile.
Ala. Mr. Lubel was our Baal
Tfiloh on the High Holidays sev-
eral years back and made num-
erous friends in our synagogue
and we are most pleased to wel-
come him back into our midst
on this happy occasion.

Auxiliary held on Tuesday, the

BRAZILIAN INFORMATION
Did you know the pilot and
interpreter for Perdo Alvares
de Cabral, who discovered Bra-
zil in 1500. was a Polish Jew who
had been forcibly baptized by
explorer Vasco de Gama and
given the name Gaspar de Ga-
ma? That the Brazilian isl-
and Nodonha was named after
Fernando de Noronha. a Potru-
! guese Marrano who with six
, shiploads of his co-religionists
; settled in Brazil three or four
; years later? That it was Jews
, and Marranos who first brought
sugar and tobacco to Portugal
from Brazil? And that when
the Dutch, in 1630. captured Re-
cife, (now Pemambuco). the
Marranos stopped pretending
and lived openly as Jews?
The main street of Recife at that
time was popularly known as
Rua des Judios, and the town it-
self was often called Cais dos
Judios. which means "port of
the Jews" When the Portu-
guese recaptured the city, how-
ver, most of the Jews left Re-
cife for Holland, while a hand-
ful found their way to New Y rk
in 1654 Those Jews who re-
gained in Recife as Marranos
eventually became true Catho-
iics, but many old Brazilian
families still have typical Span-
ish and Portuguese Jewish
names ... A curious incident
occurred some centuries later,
when, in 1887. a committee of
Alsatian Jews visited Emperor
Dom Pedro II ... As a compli.
nient to his visitors the Emper-
or, who was quite a scholar,
rtarted to address them in He-
brewbut not a single one of the
Jews could understand what he

Haifa (WNS)The Palestine
Jewish community mobilized its
resources to aid the victims of
the mysterious blast which
rocked and capsized the steam-
ship Patria in Haifa harbor, with
1.771 European Jewish refugees
hoard, hurling the ill-fated men.
women and children into the
ti arbor,
Most of those on board the
ship, refugees from Nazi-influ-
enced countries who had been
shunted from port to port since
last October, managed to swim
ashore but an official commmun-
ique said that "some fatalities"
were feared.
The explosion caused the 11,-
885-ton vessel to keel over and
slowly settle to the harbor bot-
tom. A few hours after the,
blast only a small part of the
superstructure was visible above
the water.
The number of casualties was
held down by the speedy rescue
work of British troops and po-
lice, aided by Palestine's mari-
time patrol and planes. The blast
victims were first brought to the
Haifa breakwater and then trans-
ferred to shore.
Shortly after the disaster the
Jewish National Council (Vaad
Leumi) and the Hadassah Med-
ical Organization rushsed funds
and clothing to Haifa to aid the
survivors. Jewish officials vis-
iting the scene heaped praise on
the swiftly organized rescue
_orps.
The refugees had been trans-
.erred to the Patria from the
steamships the Pacific and the
Miles, after the Palestine Gov-
ernment had announced that
they would be taken to an un-
named British colony for the du-
ration of the war. The refugees
were classed as illegal immi-
grants.
The British Government issued
a communique after the blast:
"The Government regrets to an-
nounce that this morning as t
result of an explosion, the cause
ZIONISTS TO PROTEST
BRITISH DEPORTATION
New York (WNS)Describing
as "shocking" the action of the
British government in ordering
the deportation of 1,771 Jewish
refugees who had escaped from
Nazi-held lands in Europe on the
two steamers which had reached
Haifa harbor in Palestine, the
Emergency Committee for Zion-
ist Affairs, composed of represen-
tatives of all Zionist bodies in
America, was to visit the British
Embassy at Washington last
Monday to appeal "to the con-
science of the English people."
The statement of the Emergen-
cy Committee read: "Tile Emer-

EXECUTIVE DISAGREES
WITH RUTENBERG ACT
New York (Palcor Agency)It
was learned here from reliable
sources that the Executive of the
Jewish Agency in Jerusalem
was unaware of the program
announced by Mr. Rutenberg and
did not agree to it when it was
made public.
It was also learned that the
statement made by Rutenberg
that the American-Jewsh press
should not interfere in Palestine
affairs represented his personal
views. It was reported that Mr.
Ruterberg was not authorized by
the Executive to make such a
statement and that his views
are neither shared nor supported
by the Executive.
rible days of overwhelming suf-
fering, have reached the shores
of the Jewish National Home.
"The American friends of Eng-
land and supporters of the cause
of Britain, must appeal to the
conscience of the English people
to protest and prevent such flag-
rant acts of appeasement and vi-
olation of basic human and moral
law. The Zionists of America will
do everything in their power to
achieve the repudiation of this
action of the Palestine govern-
ment" .
of which is not yet known, the
S. S. Patria, lying in Haifa har-
bor, keeled over and settled to
the bottom of the harbor. Some
1,800 illegal (Jewish) immigrants
were aboard awaiting transfer

PLAIN TALK
(CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4)
WEIZMENN ASKS JEWS
TO ENLARGE SUPPORT
London (Palcor Agency)De-
claring that in the future as in
the past the fate of the Jewish
people "will lie first of all in
our own hands," Dr. Chaim
Weizmann, president of the World
Zionist Organization and the
Jewish Agency for Palestine, ad-
dressed a message to American
Jews in which he said that "the
tragic necessities of the moment
must not distract our attention
from our ultimate goal, which is
the full liberation of our people
through the establishment of a
Jewish National Home on a
sound and enduring basis."'
ishly came to me to ask me to
vote for him. I hold it only
against them and their leadership
in Israel. Their leadership, as I
understand it, if the gift of the
Jewish people who have faith in
them. It must not be used for
any but Jewish purpose s,
But it it only fair to inquire
why these leaders slipped this
once from their lofty elevation.
This brings up a matter which
was whispered during the cam-
paign, and of which it is now
several weeks latertimely to
speak. It was the widely spread
report that nearly all Jews were
voting for Roosevelt; it was whis-
pered with prejudicial purpose
against Roosevelt; it frighten,,:
many a Jewish citizen who heard
it; it caused some of them to say,
"We must be careful! We must
certainly be careful!
One of them, in fact, said it
to me. Yes. we should watch
our step, he warned. Jews who
were for Roosevelt should keep
quiet about it. He said that Rabbi
Stephen S. Wise particularly was
a menace to Israel, coming out
as boldly as he did for Roose-
velt. As for himself, he was for
Willkie not only because he
liked Willkie. but because it was
being said that Jews were for
Roosevelt.
I gather that our leaders
thought they were serving Israel
j when this galaxy of them came
out jointly in this public way for
Mr. Willkie. Their big names
would be the testimony that net
all Israel was involved in the
crime of voting for Roosevelt!
Here were Israel's biggest men
on the other side!
I myself didn't care who knew
I was voting for Roosevelt. In
the column I write in the daily
press I advertised widely that I
was voting for him. If I permit
h ar to control my rights as an
American citizen 1 am voluntar-
ily yielding to the civil restric-
tions that anti-Semitism wou'd
impose upon me if it could. My
right is to speak my opinion pub-
| licly on any public matter and
1 am not yet recognizing any
power in America that can cur-
tail that right.
The political pamphlet of our
big leaders contained the faint
stuffy smell of long dead times
when "hofjuden" did their best
to curry favor for themselves
and Israel in the palace.---
However. I shall continue to
follow these leaders over the
top in all the drives, as I have
been doing these many years. I
shall sit at their feet and look
I up to their gleaming shirt bos-
oms as they sit at the speakers'
tables at many a Jewish dinm r
to come, I shall foreive them
but I hope that in the future
they will use their Jewish lead-
ership only for Jewish pur-
poses.

column for further particulars.
ARMY AND NAVY
At the request of the National
Jewish Welfare Board, our par-
ent organization, the Y. M. H. A.
is taking steps in appointing a
committee for the purpose of
serving the draftees and other
men stationed in the military or
naval service near here, or who
may have occasion to visit us. It
is planned that representatives
from every organization form in-
to a committee for the purpose of
apprising the general public that
the Jewish community of Miami
s ready to do its share in the
jocial welfare program for the
defense forces. The Y. M. H. A.
is glad to take the initial step in
this great movement.
TO HONOR GUARD UNITS
On Saturday evening, Novem-
oer 30, the citizens of metropol-
itan Miami are to honor our local
Florida National Guard units
who are leaving lor one year ol
duty in the service.
The three local companies and
the band of the National Guard
will have a formal review that
evening in the Orange Bowl Sta-
dium. The Mahi Shrine Temple
is sponsoring this affair, and the
Y feels greatly honored that Dr.
Beckman, our president, has been
asked to be a guest of honor and
review this pageant.
We earnestly request and urge
all the readers of this column
to be present at the Orange Bowl
Stadium Saturday evening, No-
vember 30, and pay their re-
spects to the boys who are leav-
ing. We are talking patriotism

Bucharest (W N S) Adopting
Nazi methods, the Rumanian

raids.
In return for their work. Jewj

wJemsti Flloiridliai ai ^ COHHWM YUHB Jhewuslh tUmiHty VOLUME 13.—No. 48 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1940 THRONG ATTENDS Y OF VICTIMS Haifa iWNS-Palcor Agency)— Saddened throngs lined the streets of this harbor city to watch the melancholy funeral procession of 13 of the 21 men and women who were killed when their battered ship, the Ipatria, exploded just before she was to weigh anchor for another British possession. The 13 who were interred in the mass ceremony were the only ones identified after the bodies of 21 had been recovered from the wreckage or washed ashore as the ship settled to the bottom. Survivors joined wholeheartedly in praise of the heroism of the British soldiers and sailors who rushed to their aid, saving hundreds of passengers who had jumped overboard immediately after the explosion rent the ship apart. Following the explosion, 1,530 L of the survivors of the original group of 1,771 were transferred to the camp at Athlit, where they were interned. As soon as the tragedy was reported. Kliahu Dobkin, deputy director of the Immigration Department of the Jewish Agency. left Jerusalem hurriedly for the scene Mosche Shertek. head of the Political Department, also newly arrived from Jerusalem, attended the funerals. i^ml JEWS FEAR JOINING AXIS Budnp, <: ,WNS)— Hungarian •' feared new anti-Jewish demonstration* following Hungary's formal signing of the Axis Pact. Their fears were allayed somewhat by Premier Paul TcMu's speech to parliament in which he implied that the govnt planned no drastic antiJewish ,wa in the immediate future Jewish circles here were disturbed by the fact that increased ttti-Jewish sentiment followed in the wake of Slovakia's signing of 'he Hitler-inspired pact. In his address Premier Teleki. •hile announcing that a new 0P08ed anti-Jewish law would Withheld, gave employers Blanket permission to discharge •" %  wish worken called for nuliary service in special labor battalions. Hitherto, the Military Service ^Prohibited employers from ls chargine employees, Jews as e, i as Gontiles, summoned for temporary military service. It is seated that between 50.000 y 100.000 Jews are now in labor camps The ASKS FOR TRAINING OF COMMUNAL WORKERS Washington (WNS)—A University of Jewish Studios to train all who engage in professional Jewish activtics is advocated by Rabbi David Polish, director of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation at Cornell University, in the December issue of The National Jewish Monthly. "This University," he writes. "would consist of various colleges which would train students for the rabbinate, social work, education, etc. Only graduates of the university would be engaged or supported in the communities where they would be called upon to function." All too often, Rabbi Polish declares in his article, Jewish workers, teachers, journalists and other communal servants not only lack an adequate Jewish background, but fall far below professional standards in their fields as well. The goal of the proposed University would be "the creation of a united pledge for positive and creative Jewish life in America." PRICE 10 CENTS BRITISH ACTION CAUSES PROTEST Jerusalem (WNS)—Palestine's 500.000 Jews united in a strong protest against the decision of the British government to di par; 1.771 Jewish refugees who arrived at Haifa port without legal status to some unnamed British colony. Pushing the dispute over Pinchas Rutenberg's proposals for national unity into the background, the Palestine Jewish community immediately ordered a general Stoppage of work and business. Work in all factories was suspended as a protest against the deportation ordi r The refugees, including 600 women and 171 children, who were refused permission to land started a hunger-strike as a protest. The refugees arrived aboard the steamships Paeifie and Miles early in November. it was learned. British officials said that 1.062 were on the Pacific and 709 on the Miles. The refugees embarked at a Black Sea port early in October, having come from Austria. Slovakia, Bohemia. Hungary and Rumania. British police launches intercepted the two ships as they neared the Palestine coast. Both ships were reported to be unseaworthy. while the sanitary conditions and food and water supplywere described as appalling. It was reported that the ships were shunted from port to port, denied permission everywhere to land. The passengers, all refugees from Nazi-occupied or dominated countries, were said to be in poor condition, both physically and mentally. A British spokesman said that J. n. OFTEMPLEISRAEL Well Attended Temple Meeting Pays High Tribute to Community Leader At the semi-annual meeting of Temple Israel, held Tuesday evening, November 26th. 1940, the honor of being Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Israel was conferred upon Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan. The meeting was well attended and under the leadership of the president, Mr. J. Gerald Lewis, unGREECE FIGHTING TO DEFEND DEMOCRACIES New York (WNS)—Terming Greece the mother of democracy, Rabbi David de Sola Pool declared at a special service for the people of Greece at the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue that Greece was fighting to defend all democracies, including the United States. The special services were attended by Archbishop Athenagoras, prelate of the Greek Orthodox Church in North and South America; Nicholas G. Lely, Greek Consul General in New York, and Spire Tsamis. commercial attache to the Greek legation in Washington. Thirty members of the Alexander the Great Post of the Greek War Veterans also attended. Dr. Pool stressed that Greece may be defeated by Italy's numerically stronger forces or by a Nazi invasion, but the spirit of the country will never perish. He paid tribute to the Greek Army's successes to date but warned that the conflict was by no means over. animous approval of the request of Dr. Kaplan and the recommendation of the board of directors, was resultant. Dr. Kaplan's accomplishments in tiie Greater Miami community number many, and are well known to Jewish residents in Florida, who are acquainted with Ins work in Interfaith move-. at the University of Miami, and his general leadership. The service rendered to Temple Israel in particular, and the Jewish community in general, were commended in the several reports and resolutions read at the meeting. Ministry in Miami began for Dr. Kaplan in 1926. and in his fifteen years of service and leadership, he endeared himself to the organization and community. even as he had done in his former posts of Albuquerque. New Mexico; Terre Haute. Ind.. where he organized a united Jewish community; and in Cincinnati. Ohio, prior to his ministry in Miami. Hungarian premier said the new decree would be so j the refugees would be transferred or ded as to preclude "unwarj to other boats and removed to a ntw "uelty." I British colony. BUTCHERS SENTENCED FOR KOSHER^ KILLINGS London (WNS)—Two Jewish butchers in Radem. Poland, were sentenced to two years in the penitentiary by a special Nazi court for slaughtering three calves according to Jewish ritual, the Warschauer Zeitung reported. I VICTIMS OF ANTI-JEWISH BILL Sofia. (WNS)—Bulgaria's 50.000 Jews became the latest victims of Hitler's fanatical antiSemitism when the Bulgarian Parliament passed the drastic anti-Jewish bill, excluding Jews from the government, municipal and army services. Passage of the anti-Jewish bill, the first in Bulgarias history, came as a stunning blow to the Jewish community since informed circles predicted only a month ago that the Fascistminded members of Parliament would never rally sufficient voters necessary for the bills adoption. These same circles said that passage of the bill, which was introduced last Oct. 7 on the initiative of Interior Minister Petar Gabrevski after its approval by the cabinet, signifies that Bulgarian leaders have yielded to Nazi pressure in the Balkans. In addition to barring Jews from government and army posts the bill prohibits Jews from owning land and limits the number of Jews in the professions to the proportion of Jews in the entire population. The bill bars Jews from the nation's film and theatrical enterprises, and from the newspaper and publishing fields. The bill stipulates also that persons of Jewish descent may not employBulgarian servants. Drastic penalties were provided for violation of the anti-Jewish regulations. The Jewish population of Bulgaria is for the most part very poor, playing a very unimportant role in the country's political and economic life. There are no Jews in Government posts or in high army posts. JEWS BEGIN LIFE Lisbon (WNS)—The clock was turned back several centuries in Warsaw last week when approximately 500.000 Jews were locked up in a ghetto, blocked off from the rest of the city by an eightfoot concrete wall, it was learned here. Nazi authorities have ordered Warsaw's entire Jewish population to move into the ghetto, which lies in the central district of the former Polish capital. The housing shortage in the ghetto is so severe that as many as seven persons must share one room. The concrete wall surrounds more than 100 city blocks and closes off 200 streets and street car lines. The huge wall includes 18 entrances but persons wishing to enter or leave the ghetto must secure a special pass. Even non-Jews who want to enter the district must receive special permission. When announcement was made last winter of the proposed construction of the wall, the Nazis denied that the measure was anti-Semitic but maintained that it was strictly a health move designed to protect Jews and Poles alike from epidemics likely to follow the war. Henceforth. Warsaw Jews must conduct all their businesses inside the ghetto walls. Visits to the outside city will be permitted only on special occasions. RUTENBERGACT SPLITS YISKUV Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency)—Flung into discussion at the most critical period of the Yishuv's history. Pinchas Runtenberg's policy of reorganizing the administration of Jewish Palestine through the selection of an "elite" group has split the community, with the great majority opposed to the famous engineer's : i nera'm of reform. This was made clear through a series of editorials and party pronouncements from the various wings of political and economic thought. The Palestine Central Committee of the General Zionists' Federation adopted a resolution expressing regret at Rutenberg's-proposal as representing "a deviation from democratic principles as well as from the fundamental premise that the world Zionist movement and not only Palestine Jewry is the custodian of the Zionist interests involved in the Yishuv's affairs." The general Zionist declaration asserted that "unity can be achieved in the Yishuv only through a broad coalition of all responsible elements."

November 10, at 1 p m Rabbi Max Folshin of the Civic Center Synagogue and the Radio City Synagogue, officiated at the unveiling of a tombstone at Beth David Cemetery on Long Island. This might seem like an unusual beginning for this column, but there's quite a story that we thourht you'c" be interested in hearing. Not long ago the Jewish Philosopher received a pathetic letter from a woman whose husband had been dead for three years The Jewish Philosopher is Mr C. Israel Lutsky, executive secretary of the Federation •f Ukrainian Jews and field secretary for the American Jewish Congress. Mr. Lutsky broadcasts over a New York radio station every day. This letter that Mr. Lutsky received told him that this woman had been unable to afford a stone for the frave of her husband.

STORY OF AN HONEST BOY Another pleasant story in our notes for this week is the one about Frank Glazer, 25-year-old solo pianist with Serge Koussevitsky's Symphony Orchestra, who makes his radio debut on the "Design for Happiness'' program over CBS December 8. The son of an impoverished Milwaukee couple, he was a news-hawk at the age of twelve. He found a wallet belonging to A. A. Strelsin, the noted advertising executive and returned it. Strelsin liked the boy, learned he had a natural talent for the piano and arranged that he be given lessons.

PLAIN TALK (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4) WEIZMENN ASKS JEWS TO ENLARGE SUPPORT London (Palcor Agency)—Declaring that in the future as in the past the fate of the Jewish people "will lie first of all in our own hands," Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization and the Jewish Agency for Palestine, addressed a message to American Jews in which he said that "the tragic necessities of the moment must not distract our attention from our ultimate goal, which is the full liberation of our people through the establishment of a Jewish National Home on a sound and enduring basis."' ishly came to me to ask me to vote for him. I hold it only against them and their leadership in Israel. Their leadership, as I understand it, if the gift of the Jewish people who have faith in them. It must not be used for any but Jewish purpose s, But it it only fair to inquire why these leaders slipped this once from their lofty elevation. This brings up a matter which was whispered during the campaign, and of which it is now— several weeks later—timely to speak. It was the widely spread report that nearly all Jews were voting for Roosevelt; it was whispered with prejudicial purpose against Roosevelt; it frighten,,: many a Jewish citizen who heard it; it caused some of them to say, "We must be careful! We must certainly be careful! One of them, in fact, said it to me. Yes. we should watch our step, he warned. Jews who were for Roosevelt should keep quiet about it. He said that Rabbi Stephen S. Wise particularly was a menace to Israel, coming out as boldly as he did for Roosevelt. As for himself, he was for Willkie not only because he liked Willkie. but because it was being said that Jews were for Roosevelt. I gather that our leaders thought they were serving Israel j when this galaxy of them came out jointly in this public way for Mr. Willkie. Their big names would be the testimony that net all Israel was involved in the crime of voting for Roosevelt! Here were Israel's biggest men on the other side! I myself didn't care who knew I was voting for Roosevelt. In the column I write in the daily press I advertised widely that I was voting for him. If I permit h ar to control my rights as an American citizen 1 am voluntarily yielding to the civil restrictions that anti-Semitism wou'd impose upon me if it could. My right is to speak my opinion pub| licly on any public matter and 1 am not yet recognizing any power in America that can curtail that right. The political pamphlet of our big leaders contained the faint stuffy smell of long dead times when "hofjuden" did their best to curry favor for themselves and Israel in the palace.--However. I shall continue to follow these leaders over the top in all the drives, as I have been doing these many years. I shall sit at their feet and look I up to their gleaming shirt bosoms as they sit at the speakers' tables at many a Jewish dinm r to come, I shall foreive them but I hope that in the future they will use their Jewish leadership only for Jewish purposes. AT PLAY IN THEIR NEW HOMELAND | REFUGEE CHILDREN CARED FOR I N URBDIA Y Youthful German-Jewish immigrants, the sons and daughters of refugees who have found asylum in Uruguay, live and play happily in a children's home conducted by the Association Filantropica Israelita.

SHOCHET Managing Editor Eatored as second class matter July 4, 1930 at the Post Ottce of Miami. Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR SIX MONTHS $2.00 $1.00 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1940 VOLUME 13 NUMBER 48 PLAIN TALK! I A MATTER OF POLITICS j B T Al **•*! DESERVED RECOGNITION Coming as pleasant news this week was the announcement by the officers and directors of Temple Israel wherein they conferred upon Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan the honor of being Rabbi Emeritus of the Temple. Recognizing the wholehearted devotion and faithfulness he has given in his activities while filling the pulpit of the Temple as spiritual leader, it was a deserving action enabling Dr. Kaplan to relieve himself of the bulk of the tremendous burdens he has carried and to slacken the rapid pace he set during these years. As the spiritual head and leader of the large, influential and active Temple Israel which he has guided for the past 15 years, coming here from Cincinnati in 1926. Dr. Kaplan was recognized as an ambassador of good will. Always in the forefront of every movement that would aid in cementing our relationships with our neighbors he assisted greatly in making the path of Judaism in our city an easier one to travel and through which to achieve and earn for Jewry that place of respect to which it is entitled. Through his efforts and continued work. Dr. Kaplan was one of those responsible for the formation of the Round Table Conference of Jews and Christians, active to this very day. He lectured at the University of Miami and was chosen to head the Rabbinical Association of the State of Florida being drafted to serve another term of this group which he now heads. Devoting a career to being a rabbi in the true sense of the word carries with it absolute sacrifices, many very great. It carries with it innumerable hardships and difficulties. It is a vocation that rarely sees its virtues rewarded and often finds its sincere actions harshly condemned. Knowing how seldom and few are the occasions where spiritual leaders are rewarded for this devotion to this lifetime of labor with its meager recompense, it is truly gratifying to realize that as a respected and loved servant of our community he has been rightfully and fittingly recognized. We are pleased because we know that Dr. Kaplan, now in his prime of life, will be able to see the fruits of his labor and the creations of his effort and together with Mrs. Kaplan will be in a position to enjoy many years of happiness with us, knowing that his guiding hand will always be present where the good and benefit of our people are concerned. Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PfflNEAS J. BIRON) MEET YOUR OBLIGATION—REGISTER! To sustain the principles of our great Democracy, every American Citizen must enjoy the gratifying privilege of the ballot which gives a voice in Government. If this privilege should ever be denied, it would definitely destroy our Democracy. We should always be mindful of this privilege and feel ever grateful that it is afforded to all of us. Therefore, those of us who are derelict in exercising their right to ballot may rightfully be condemned unworthy of Citizenship. To be a true and loyal American, each and every one must register and vote at election. We stress the importance to every Citizen of the City of Miami to register for the next City election to be held next May. All previous registrations on Miami registration books have been declared null and void so that all Citizens of the City of Miami must register between now and the closing date of the registration. December 21, 1940. The registration books are open in the office of the City Clerk, Mr. Frank J. Kelly, on the third floor of the Court House building. This registration is not to be confused with the County and State registrations which are renewed every two years. The present Miami registration is intended to be a permanent one. Well, the election is all over and has fallen deep into the abysses of time. So I may safely speak of it. During the weeks of the campaign it took all my self-restraint to hold me back from utterance on the subject. But with admirably control I said to myself. No, Segal, not a word! Not a word until its all over for several weeks. You can't afford to be publicly the partisan who sticks his neck out. He who sticks his neck out may get his head chopped off. Even now. weeks later. I am so cautious as not to declare publicly in this column how I voted, though whoever looked over my shoulder in the secrecy of the voting place could have detected me voting for Roosevelt. Eut that is a matter strictly confidential between me and my conscience. There was a certain day \fi thi? campaign when I almost was consumed by anger which I could not allpw myself to get out of my system at the time. Had I done so I would have been called a New Deal agent using the columns of the Jewish press to further a political cause. What made me so angry was to receive a certain pamphlet from the National Republican Committee in New York. It is not that I am an intolerant man who resents being approached by pamphlets of contrary opinion. But this political pamphlet came to me as a Jew; it brought me the appeal of other Jews who. as Jews, attempted to influence my vote as an American citizen. I would not have been so angry about it had it been a forthright appeal to Jews by the Republican National Committee Then I would have said. "Well. these people don't know any better. I must forgive them." But this pamphlet contained several dozen statements of po. litical affiliation signed by Jews. Nor were they Jews of whom it might have been said. "The damfools! It takes all kinds of Jews to make the community. These don't seem to know any better than to lend their Jewish names to political purposes." The signers of this pamphlet big rabbis, big lawyers, big business people—big Jewish le iders. It was quite obvious that they had been selected for this political purpose precisely because of their leadership in Israel. They were of that group that has been heard rightfully deploring when Judaism has been seen mixing in politics. They have despised the little ward-heeler who employs his Judaism for vote-getting. Their finely balanced sense of propriety suffers acutely whenever they hear of a police judge or some other nonJewish politician being the guest of honor at the dedication of a synagogue. They have always been the foremost champions of the idea that it is prostitution to lend the Jewish name to any purpose of politics. They are of those who are often heard insisting that the Jews are not a people separate from the communion of democracy who must be separately appealed to. They have always been quick to point out that there is no Jewish vote and have resented as insult any appeal that suggested that there is a Jewish vote. Yet here they were addressing me through the agency of a political committee, saying to me in effect: "Mr. Segal, you are a Jew and we are Jews. Brethren, in fact. Since we are all Jews together you must believe us when we tell you that Mr. Willkie is the man for president." I would have resented them as much if. as Jews, they had come to tell me that Roosevelt was the man that I, as a Jew, should vote for. In fact, I had no partisan feeling against Mr. Willkie. I regarded him, and still regard him, as an honest, able and patriotic citizen and I wouldn't have felt any pain had he been elected president. Nor did I hold it against him that these prominent Jews Jew(CONTINUEO ON PAGE 7) WAR ECHOES American correspondents in Berlin don't like to attend the Goebbels gab-fests even though extra food ration cards are issued to all present at the press conferences One leporter, however, goes every time—on the theory that any extra food he eats means so much less for the German army ...

BRAZILIAN INFORMATION Did you know the pilot and interpreter for Perdo Alvares de Cabral, who discovered Brazil in 1500. was a Polish Jew who had been forcibly baptized by explorer Vasco de Gama and given the name Gaspar de Gama? That the Brazilian island Nodonha was named after Fernando de Noronha. a Potru! guese Marrano who with six shiploads of his co-religionists ; settled in Brazil three or four ; years later? That it was Jews and Marranos who first brought sugar and tobacco to Portugal from Brazil? And that when the Dutch, in 1630. captured Recife, (now Pemambuco). the Marranos stopped pretending and lived openly as Jews? The main street of Recife at that time was popularly known as Rua des Judios, and the town itself was often called Cais dos Judios. which means "port of the Jews" When the Portuguese recaptured the city, howver, most of the Jews left Recife for Holland, while a handful found their way to New Y rk in 1654 Those Jews who regained in Recife as Marranos eventually became true Cathoiics, but many old Brazilian families still have typical Spanish and Portuguese Jewish names ... A curious incident occurred some centuries later, when, in 1887. a committee of Alsatian Jews visited Emperor Dom Pedro II ... As a compli. nient to his visitors the Emperor, who was quite a scholar, rtarted to address them in Hebrew—but not a single one of the Jews could understand what he said And. lest you think that m ve been engaging an army of sleuths to unearth this Interest* %  ng information, let us confess right here and now that we've garnered all this knowlegde i :rom the recently published secj ond \ olume f the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, of which 'Louis Rittenberg is the editor. Haifa (WNS)—The Palestine Jewish community mobilized its resources to aid the victims of the mysterious blast which rocked and capsized the steamship Patria in Haifa harbor, with 1.771 European Jewish refugees hoard, hurling the ill-fated men. women and children into the ti arbor, Most of those on board the ship, refugees from Nazi-influenced countries who had been shunted from port to port since last October, managed to swim ashore but an official commmunique said that "some fatalities" were feared. The explosion caused the 11,885-ton vessel to keel over and slowly settle to the harbor bottom. A few hours after the, blast only a small part of the superstructure was visible above the water. The number of casualties was held down by the speedy rescue work of British troops and police, aided by Palestine's maritime patrol and planes. The blast victims were first brought to the Haifa breakwater and then transferred to shore. Shortly after the disaster the Jewish National Council (Vaad Leumi) and the Hadassah Medical Organization rushsed funds and clothing to Haifa to aid the survivors. Jewish officials visiting the scene heaped praise on the swiftly organized rescue •_orps. The refugees had been trans.erred to the Patria from the steamships the Pacific and the Miles, after the Palestine Government had announced that they would be taken to an unnamed British colony for the duration of the war. The refugees were classed as illegal immigrants. The British Government issued a communique after the blast: "The Government regrets to announce that this morning as t result of an explosion, the cause ZIONISTS TO PROTEST BRITISH DEPORTATION New York (WNS)—Describing as "shocking" the action of the British government in ordering the deportation of 1,771 Jewish refugees who had escaped from Nazi-held lands in Europe on the two steamers which had reached Haifa harbor in Palestine, the Emergency Committee for Zionist Affairs, composed of representatives of all Zionist bodies in America, was to visit the British Embassy at Washington last Monday to appeal "to the conscience of the English people." The statement of the Emergency Committee read: "Tile Emergency Committee for Zionist Affairs in America views with amazenv nl the shocking action of the Palestine government in its inhuman deportation of 1771 helpless men. women and children who. after even in these terEXECUTIVE DISAGREES WITH RUTENBERG ACT New York (Palcor Agency)—It was learned here from reliable sources that the Executive of the Jewish Agency in Jerusalem was unaware of the program announced by Mr. Rutenberg and did not agree to it when it was made public. It was also learned that the statement made by Rutenberg that the American-Jewsh press should not interfere in Palestine affairs represented his personal views. It was reported that Mr. Ruterberg was not authorized by the Executive to make such a statement and that his views are neither shared nor supported by the Executive. rible days of overwhelming suffering, have reached the shores of the Jewish National Home. "The American friends of England and supporters of the cause of Britain, must appeal to the conscience of the English people to protest and prevent such flagrant acts of appeasement and violation of basic human and moral law. The Zionists of America will do everything in their power to achieve the repudiation of this action of the Palestine government" of which is not yet known, the S. S.
