Budapest (WNS)A delegation
of prominent Jews, headed by-
Chief Rabbi Alexander Safran.
which visited Rumanian Premier
Ion Antonescu to protest against
the killing of scores of Jews by
members of the violently anti-
Semitic Iron Guard, was denied
permission to see the premier,
it has been learned here.
A few hours afterwards, how-
ever. Gen. Antonescu sent an
emissary to Rabbi Safran with
assurances that the government
had taken steps to quell the
orders which marked the re-bl-
ent ceremonies held for
Corneliu Zelea Codreanu, Iron
Guard chieftain who was
cuted two years ago.
(The United Press reported
from Budapest that 2.000 per-
sons, many of them Jews, had
been slain in Iron Guard out-
breaks and that Iron Guardists
had fought pitched battles with
Rumanian troops at some points.
The same agency reported that
200 Jews and leftists were mur-
dered at Ploesti.)
Rumanian Jews took little
comfort in Gen. Antonescu's
safety pledges since the Iron
Guard has demonstrated that it
has a free hand in Rumania.
Iron Guardists invaded Jewish
districts in many Rumanian cit-
ies, including Bucharest. Galati.
and Ploesti. assaulting Jewish
men and women and plundering
their homes.
Tension throughout Rumania
was heightened by reports that
General Field Marshal Wilhelm
Keitel, chief of the German Su-
preme Command, was en route
to Bucharest to supervise Nazi
troops in a determined effort to
crush internal disorders.
Jews had little reason to place
confidence in Gen. Antonescu's
assurances of peace in view of
the fact that the Iron Guardists
responsible for the slaying of 64
former Rumanian officials, which
touched off the nationwide out-
breaks, were not arrested by Ru-
manian police.
Exact figures of the number of
Jews killed in the riots were un-
obtainable because of the tight
censorship clamped down by Ru-
manian authorities shortly after
the start of the disturbances
Green-shirted Iron Guardists
invaded synagogues and Jev
owned homes in many of the
smaller towns and cities and ter-
rorized the Jewish populations.
Windows of Jewish shops were

THE PATRIA DISASTER
The sinking of the S. S. Patria at Haifa harbor will go into
Jewish history as one of the major moments illustrating the
Jewish tragedy in the present war.
About 1800 Jews, persecuted by the Nazis in Nazi-ruled
territories, had been wandering for months on two steamers on
the high seas. They suffered hunger, cold, disease, but lived
in the hope eventually they would reach the shores of Pales-
tine and be admitted into the Jewish Homeland. Their ships
were unseaworthy and they were exposed to the danger of los-
ing their lives at any moment while wandering from port to
port but life for Jews under the Nazis is worse than death at
sea. and the victims believed that all they needed was to reach
the shores of Palestine to start all over again.
Started on their wanderings before Italy joined in the war.
the victims found themselves in an especially precarious posi-
tion when the war spread to the Mediterranean Here they
were on the high seas between the fighting British and Italian
fleets with nowhere even to anchor, with nowhere to secure the
necessary supplies of food and water.
Their tragedy was intensified when, after finally reaching
the shores of Palestine, they were told that as illegal immigrants
they would not be admitted. Instead, they were to be shipped
t. some remote British possession in Africa and isolated there
until the end of the war. As the two ships on which they ar-
rived were declared unseaworthy. they were transferred by
the British authorities to the British steamer Patria which was to
carry them into the wilderness of an African colony.
The mysterious explosion which occurred on the Patria
just a few hours before it was to leave Haifa has. for the time
being, altered the situation of the unfortunates. Instead of be-
ing isolated in wild African territory, they are now interned in
camps in Palestine. They are finally on Palestine soil though
at the cost of more than a score of lives.
The question now is: Will the rescued victims at least be
permitted to remain in Palestine without being under the con-
Lit threat of eventual transfer to Africa? Will the Palestine
administration finally take into consideration the hardships
which these unfortunates endured and permit them to stay.
The Jewish Agency for Palestine has submitted to the Pal-
estine Government a request for the new six months immigra-
tion schedule ending March. 1941. This schedu 1* we hope,
will certainly be larger than the approximately 1750 JewuA
victims rescued from the Patria. Nothing is easier than to leg-
alize the position of these victims by granting them thenghtto
be considered as legally^ntered immigrants under the forrtv
coming immigration schedule. It would have been simple to
each'such an arrangement prior to transfer of the.refugee.to
the Patria for deportation into a remote African land. The lives
Lt as a result of the explosion would then have been spared
and a logical end would have been brought to long months of
high-sea wanderings of 1771 human victims.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHINEAS J. BIRON)
JEWISH-OWNED BANKS
FORCED TO LIQUIDATE
,was opened last week, have for-
London (WNS)Jewish-owned
banks and corporations in Nazi-
occupied Poland have been given
until Dec. 13 of this year to li-
quidate their business and to
turn their properties over to the
German banks, it was learned.
The decree closing the banks
was issued by Nazi Governor
Hans Frank. It was believed
that a small number of Jewish
savings banks would be permit-
ted to continue business.
Meanwhile, the Polish Minis-
try of Information disclosed that
Nazi authorities supervising the
Jewish ghetto in Warsaw, which
bidden the 500,000 Jews living
behind the 8-foot concrete wall
to use electricity and gas after 8
p. m.
The entire Jewish community
of Warsaw, with the exception of
Jewish doctors, has been com-
pelled to move into the ghetto.
Jewish doctors may live outside
the ghetto but must display a
"Mogen David" on their shingles.
In the ghetto Jews are com-
pletely shut off from the rest of
the city. At no time of the day
are Jews permitted to leave the
ghetto without special permission
from the Nazi authorities. Even
non-Jews must obtain a pass to
enter the district.
I am informed concerning the
distress of Mrs. Zilch, which isn t
in fact her name. Her name may
be Zylch instead of Zilch.
The Zilches live, I am told,
in a certain delectable village not
far from a certain big American
city which may be Chicago and
then, again may not be Chicago.
It is only recently that they
moved into the village and are
occuping a very nice house in-
deed. Not only are they happy
in t\b house but also in the
neighborhood.
They are especially happy in
the neighborhood because it is
so far from the rather Jewish
neighborhood in which they used
to live and in which they were
born, in fact. To get away from
the Jewish neighborhood was
like some lucky escape for Mr.
and Mrs. Zilch who had more
and more been feeling the bur-
den of being Jewish.
Mr. and Mrs. Zilch had begun
hating themselves for being born
Jewish and I hear it said that
Hitler couldn't have hated them
more than they hated them-
selves.
On the evening of the day they
moved, wnen all their furniture
had been set in place, and they
were seated for the first time at
their bright new fireplace. Mrs.
Zilch said to Zilch: "At last,
Mortimer!" She said it with a
kind of sweet sigh.
By this she meant yes. Morti-
mer, at last we are out of it
all. out of Hazelwood, out of all
that. Hazelwood is the name of
the somewhat Jewish commun-
ity from which they had es-
caped.) Her happy sigh must
have been that of a refugee from
Germany looking at the Statue
of Liberty for the first time.
As time went on. Mrs. Zilch
felt they hadn't completely es-
caped. They hadn't, in fact, es-
caped from themselves. They
were still conscious of being Jew-
ish. They were the more con-
scious of it because they wire
about the only Jews in the neigh-
borhood. When they were liv-
ing in Hazelwood they could not
feel so conspicuously Jewish be-
cause there were so many Jews
around them.
-Mortimer." said Mrs. Zilch.
"I am not feeling as comfortable
as I should."
Not that their neighbors were
not very nice. They were, in-
deed, civilized people who could
find no fault with their new
neighbors simply because they
were Jewish. They knew Mr.
Zilch by reputation as a very
substantial business man in town
and Mrs. Zilch as a lady whom
the press reported as being act-
ive in this and that.
Their neighbors made the cus-
tomary ceremonial calls on them
and had admired the appoint-
ments of their house.
"Still," Mrs. Zilch said. "I can
not feel I am one of them. I
feel like some one apart from
them."
She meant by this that she
was still feeling quite Jewish.
To feel Jewish hadn't been quite
as much a pain in Hazelwood as
it was in the new place.
She thought this way and that
about the whole thing and came
finally to a conclusion.
"Mortimer. I think I know
what's the matter."
"The matter with what?"
"With us. Mortimer. I think
we should have a part in the re-
ligious life of this community.
That will solve it."
"You mean belong to church?"
"Yes! That will make us a
part of the community."
Mr.. Zilch never had much to
do with religion. When he was
13 he was confirmed in a tem-
ple and that was about his last
association with anything relig-
ious, except for the few minutes
he stood before a rabbi to be
married and the half hour of the
funeral service for his father ov-
er whom they said yisgadal.
But he is a man who never
interfered much in the social
things his wife arranged for him.
When she says, Mortimer, we're
going to this house for dinner,
he goes, and when she says Mor-
timer, we're going to that house
for dinner, he goes. So when
she suggested taking up Chris-

YOU SHOULD KNOW
The cultural life of Palestine goes on despite war and black-
outs, with one exception. Dr. Nissan Touroff recently reported
to the Palestine Hebrew Culture Fund The publication of
books and the size of newspapers has been sharply curtailed,
due to an acute shortage of paper in Eretz Israel Jerusalem,
Dr. Touroff further revealed, has become the refugee center of
the Near East Did you read Pierre van Paassen's piece,
entitled "The Coming Bottle for Jerusalem," in last week's Lib-
erty Magazine? We learn that the late Robert Marhall,
forester and son of the Jewish leader Louis Marshall, left the
major part of his fortune, amounting to over a million dollars,
to a foundation that is to study ways and means of instituting
an economy based on the use-motive rather than on the profit-
motive Joseph G. Brin, publisher of the Boston Jewish Ad-
vocate, is the author of a book that should be circulated among
our would-be speakers ... It is called "Personal Power Through
Public Speech." and is a very systematic text-book on that sub-

being readied for Broadway and which will have Sam Jaffe in

SHOCHET Managing Editor Entered as second class matter July 4, 1930 at the Post Otece of Miami. Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR SIX M ONTHS FRIDAY DECEMBER VOLUME 13 $2.00 $1.00 6, 1940 NUMBER 49 FLIIITILK GOING SHOPPING By AI ssi i THE PATRIA DISASTER The sinking of the S. S. Patria at Haifa harbor will go into Jewish history as one of the major moments illustrating the Jewish tragedy in the present war. About 1800 Jews, persecuted by the Nazis in Nazi-ruled territories, had been wandering for months on two steamers on the high seas. They suffered hunger, cold, disease, but lived in the hope eventually they would reach the shores of Palestine and be admitted into the Jewish Homeland. Their ships were unseaworthy and they were exposed to the danger of losing their lives at any moment while wandering from port to port but life for Jews under the Nazis is worse than death at sea. and the victims believed that all they needed was to reach the shores of Palestine to start all over again. Started on their wanderings before Italy joined in the war. the victims found themselves in an especially precarious position when the war spread to the Mediterranean Here they were on the high seas between the fighting British and Italian fleets with nowhere even to anchor, with nowhere to secure the necessary supplies of food and water. Their tragedy was intensified when, after finally reaching the shores of Palestine, they were told that as illegal immigrants they would not be admitted. Instead, they were to be shipped t. some remote British possession in Africa and isolated there until the end of the war. As the two ships on which they arrived were declared unseaworthy. they were transferred by the British authorities to the British steamer Patria which was to carry them into the wilderness of an African colony. The mysterious explosion which occurred on the Patria just a few hours before it was to leave Haifa has. for the time being, altered the situation of the unfortunates. Instead of being isolated in wild African territory, they are now interned in camps in Palestine. They are finally on Palestine soil though at the cost of more than a score of lives. The question now is: Will the rescued victims at least be permitted to remain in Palestine without being under the conLit threat of eventual transfer to Africa? Will the Palestine administration finally take into consideration the hardships which these unfortunates endured and permit them to stay. The Jewish Agency for Palestine has submitted to the Palestine Government a request for the new six months immigration schedule ending March. 1941. This schedu 1* we hope, will certainly be larger than the approximately 1750 JewuA victims rescued from the Patria. Nothing is easier than to legalize the position of these victims by granting them thenghtto be considered as legally^ntered immigrants under the forrtv coming immigration schedule. It would have been simple to each'such an arrangement prior to transfer of the.refugee.to the Patria for deportation into a remote African land. The lives Lt as a result of the explosion would then have been spared and a logical end would have been brought to long months of high-sea wanderings of 1771 human victims. Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHINEAS J. BIRON) JEWISH-OWNED BANKS FORCED TO LIQUIDATE ,was opened last week, have forLondon (WNS)—Jewish-owned banks and corporations in Nazioccupied Poland have been given until Dec. 13 of this year to liquidate their business and to turn their properties over to the German banks, it was learned. The decree closing the banks was issued by Nazi Governor Hans Frank. It was believed that a small number of Jewish savings banks would be permitted to continue business. Meanwhile, the Polish Ministry of Information disclosed that Nazi authorities supervising the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw, which bidden the 500,000 Jews living behind the 8-foot concrete wall to use electricity and gas after 8 p. m. The entire Jewish community of Warsaw, with the exception of Jewish doctors, has been compelled to move into the ghetto. Jewish doctors may live outside the ghetto but must display a "Mogen David" on their shingles. In the ghetto Jews are completely shut off from the rest of the city. At no time of the day are Jews permitted to leave the ghetto without special permission from the Nazi authorities. Even non-Jews must obtain a pass to enter the district. I am informed concerning the distress of Mrs. Zilch, which isn t in fact her name. Her name may be Zylch instead of Zilch. The Zilches live, I am told, in a certain delectable village not far from a certain big American city which may be Chicago and then, again may not be Chicago. It is only recently that they moved into the village and are occuping a very nice house indeed. Not only are they happy in t\b house but also in the neighborhood. They are especially happy in the neighborhood because it is so far from the rather Jewish neighborhood in which they used to live and in which they were born, in fact. To get away from the Jewish neighborhood was like some lucky escape for Mr. and Mrs. Zilch who had more and more been feeling the burden of being Jewish. Mr. and Mrs. Zilch had begun hating themselves for being born Jewish and I hear it said that Hitler couldn't have hated them more than they hated themselves. On the evening of the day they moved, wnen all their furniture had been set in place, and they were seated for the first time at their bright new fireplace. Mrs. Zilch said to Zilch: "At last, Mortimer!" She said it with a kind of sweet sigh. By this she meant yes. Mortimer, at last we are out of it all. out of Hazelwood, out of all that. Hazelwood is the name of the somewhat Jewish community from which they had escaped.) Her happy sigh must have been that of a refugee from Germany looking at the Statue of Liberty for the first time. As time went on. Mrs. Zilch felt they hadn't completely escaped. They hadn't, in fact, escaped from themselves. They were still conscious of being Jewish. They were the more conscious of it because they wire about the only Jews in the neighborhood. When they were living in Hazelwood they could not feel so conspicuously Jewish because there were so many Jews around them. -Mortimer." said Mrs. Zilch. "I am not feeling as comfortable as I should." Not that their neighbors were not very nice. They were, indeed, civilized people who could find no fault with their new neighbors simply because they were Jewish. They knew Mr. Zilch by reputation as a very substantial business man in town and Mrs. Zilch as a lady whom the press reported as being active in this and that. Their neighbors made the customary ceremonial calls on them and had admired the appointments of their house. "Still," Mrs. Zilch said. "I can not feel I am one of them. I feel like some one apart from them." She meant by this that she was still feeling quite Jewish. To feel Jewish hadn't been quite as much a pain in Hazelwood as it was in the new place. She thought this way and that about the whole thing and came finally to a conclusion. "Mortimer. I think I know what's the matter." "The matter with what?" "With us. Mortimer. I think we should have a part in the religious life of this community. That will solve it." "You mean belong to church?" "Yes! That will make us a part of the community." Mr.. Zilch never had much to do with religion. When he was 13 he was confirmed in a temple and that was about his last association with anything religious, except for the few minutes he stood before a rabbi to be married and the half hour of the funeral service for his father over whom they said yisgadal. But he is a man who never interfered much in the social things his wife arranged for him. When she says, Mortimer, we're going to this house for dinner, he goes, and when she says Mortimer, we're going to that house for dinner, he goes. So when she suggested taking up ChrisNEWS COLUMN The Vichy Government, they tell us, is deliberating on a mass deportation of Jews to Madagascar Note to our lady readers: We hear that Gory Goering's favorite perfume is a concoction called L'Heure Bleu ...
