MILK IS DENIED TO LI OVER 5 TUB OLD Lisbon (WNS)—Nazi authorities in Cracow, capital of the Polish government-general have decreed that henceforth milk cards will not be issued for Jewish children over five years of age. it was reported here In the future only German children will receive whole milk rations. Polish children will receive half portions, as will Jewish children under five years. The property of Jews remaining in Cracow will be confiscated by the local Nazi authorities, it was learned here. All Jewish corporations will be liquidated. The Nazi press in Cracow has launched a new campaign against Jews still in Cracow despite previous expulsion orders. The official press made demands that these Jews be forcibly deported and their property confiscated Earlier Nazi deportations resulted in 20.000 Jews leaving Cracow for some other part of Poland. Many Jews remained, however, claiming they had no other place to go. The new decree stipulated that Cracow Jews who do not leave "voluntarily" will be forcibly ejected. FIRST SLOVAK GHETTO OPENS IN PROSTEJOV Lisbon (WNS)—The first ghetto in modern Slovakia was opened officially when the 6,000 Jews of Prostejov were ordered by local Nazi authorities to move into the small area set apart from the rest of the city, it was reported here. The Jews of the city were given short notice to vacate their homes and move into a district much too small for the needs of 6.000 persons. Homes formerly occupied by Jews will be taken over by Slovakian military officials. SENATE DEFEATS BILL ON IMMIGRATION BAN La Paz, Bolivia (WNS)—A bill designed to restrict Jewish immigration was defeated by a vote of 15 to 5 in the Bolivian senate.

Florida, under the Act oi March 3, 1879 SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR SIX MONTHS $2.00 $1.00 FRIDAY VOLUME 13 DECEMBER 13 1940 NUMBER 50 [PLAIN TALKl GOING SHOPPING By Al S#l PROF. BERGSON What civilized France thinks of the anti-Jewish course taken by the Petain Government under pressure from Germany is best illustrated by the action of Henri Bergson, the famous philosopher and Nobel prize winner. Prof. Bergson is a Jew of Polish descent. However, he never considered himself Jewish. In fact, one of his books dealing with the philosophy of religion aroused a good deal of criticism among Jews because it entirely omitted any reference to the Jewish religion. But when the Petain administration recently offered the 81year-old philosopher an exemption from the anti-Jewish laws in order to enable him to continue to serve as professor at the College of France. Bergson rejected this "generous offer. He, who never attached much importance to his Jewishness. demonstratively refused to be the exception while other Jews in France were being treated as second class citizens and deprived of the rights to serve French interests. There is no doubt that Bergson. in demonstrating his hatred of the anti-Semitic course in France, did it as one who considers himself a Frenchman rather than a Jew. There is also no doubt that many other French scientists would similarly display their resentment against the anti-Jewish laws if they had the occasion. The anti-Semitic decrees of the Vichy Government are far from representing the sentiments of the French people. Neither in occupied nor in unoccupied France do they Teflect the actual wishes of the French population. There is none today in France who can understand why French Jews are punished for the treachery committed by the Lavals and his like who sold out France to Hitler. The demonstrative act of Prof Bergson will, no doubt, be applauded by many nonJews in France as it will by those outside of Fra nce. .victims of Nazi brutality who it I had been feared would be denied entry into Eretz Israel altogether. But while doing all in their j power to alleviate the sufferings 1 of the poor unfortunates who have at last found haven in thiir national home, the Jews of Palestine are not losing sight of Mr. Hall's statement that future would-be Jewish immigrants would receive from the GovernStrictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHINEAS J.

In making his disclosure in the House of Commons. Mr. Hall statjment the same treatment that had ed that the 1600 refugees would been planned for the Patna pasbe deducted from the next PalesI sengers. Heartened by tine immigration quota. He repeated the warning also that all future illegal immigrants would be sent to some other British colony. The enthusiasm of the Jewish community here was tempered by the fact that the death toll of Patria victims rose to 55 with the recovery by divers of 11 more bodies. The Yishuv is now applying itself with renewed vigor to the tremendous task of supplying adequate food and clothing to the 1,593 Jewish refugees interned at the camp in Athlit and to the several injured still in the hospital The concentration of relief agencies on the task of providing large quantites of the necessary materials is meeting with the fullest possible co-operation from every member of Palestine's Jewish population, which is happy at the possibility of affording warm welcome to the terrorized pionship of their cause by prominent members of parliament like Colonel Josiah C. Wedgwood, they are taking council as to the best methods of further procedure to convince the government of the desirability of admitting into the Jewish National Home all refugee Jews who seek sanctuary here. CANTEEN DESTROYED; ANOTHER ONE OPENED London (WNS)—The courage of London's Jews in the face of fierce Nazi aerial attacks was demonstrated again when a Nazi bombed scored a direct hit on an emergency food canteen opened by the Polish Jewish Refugee Fund. Within 24 hours another canteen, much larger than the one destroyed, was opened in another section of London. The same fund has opened a clinic to care for victims of the Nazi bombings. A folder from a Miami Beach hotel informs me as follows: "A caivfully restricted gentile clientele assures pleasant daily association with acceptable, civilized people—the sort you would welcome in your own home.'' Now I am very fond of civilized people. I have often been heard saying to my wife that what the world needs is more civilized people. I say this with a pounding of my fist on the arm of my chair, a gesture that indicates how firm I am in that conviction. The savages are running the world and there's no telling what it's all coming to, I say. The only comfort we have is that my wife and I are getting along in years and we may be gone before the savages get around to us. So you can imagine my pleasure at discovering a place where civilized people are kept. Of course. I myself am one of those men who are not included in the hotel's classification of civilized people, since I am no gentile; but I am always happy to look at the civilized from a distance i My admiration for the civilized includes such people as Toscannini, Roosevelt, Bishop McConnell. Rockefeller. Norman Thomas and Churchill. Until I received the hotel's folder I also counted Jesus and Einstein among the civilized of the human race. But they appear not to be of the civilized, since these hotel people suggest that only gentiles are the civilized. I can not dispute this with them inasmuch as a hotel that charges $25 a day for twin beds between the dates of Jan. 20 and March 20 must be authoritative Until and including Jan. 19 the twin beds cost $16 a day, but on Jan. 20 the price advances $8— all overnight. I do not feel competent to argue human values with people whose sense of values is so finely balanced that they know precisely that twin beds worth $16 on Jan 19 are worth $24 on Jan. 20. At the time I received the hotel's folder I had been rather discouraged with the way civilization was going to hell. I had just read in Harper's an article on "Europe's Revolt Against Civilization" by William Henry Chamberlain. Mr. Chamberlain seemed in deepest gloom and his discouragement took hold of my heart as well. The same day's events suggested that Mr. Chamberlain probably was right. The Iron Guard in Rumania had just gone to the jail and lynched in a mass 64 members of former King Carol"s government. Probably I should have said. Well, it seems one pack of wolves is devouring another pack. Instead I felt shocked for. though I am no gentile, I appear to have in me some vestigial remains of civilization. This caused me to feel that it is quite immoral for gentiles to slaughter other gentiles without any trial. The massacre looked like dusk falling on civilization. What troubled me particularly was that gentiles had done this hideous thing. Some of my best friends are gentiles and I refrained from mentioning the horrible matter to them, lest they get the impression that I believed all gentiles were like that. One of them did bring it up on his own account, however, but I was at pains to dismiss it at once. I was quick to tell him that all gentiles couldn't be blamed for it "It takes all kinds of gentiles to make a world," I said. Yet my mind remained distressed: Civilization! And what future can there be for a civilization in which gentiles murder other gentiles in a mass slaughter as of cattle in stockyards. Civilization has descended to the slaughter pen and human life has been reduced to the indignity of a stuck pig. Besides, as my unhappy mind reflected, the unspeakable nazis are gentiles, too. And the way they are lavishing civilization! But whatever unjust doubts had arisen in my mind concerning the fate of civilization among (CONTINUED ON PAGE 7) TRANS-ATLANTIC GRAPEVINE With assassinations of Nazi leaders mounting up in Norway, the Nazis are beginning to suspect that the Nordics don't like them, and are organizing special storm troop units that are supposed to persuade the Norwegians that it's healthier to support Hitler Among the inmates of Franch jails are Paul Louis Weiler and Marcel Bloch. two famous airplane designers against whom the Vichy government couldn't even trump up charges, but whom it placed under "administrative internment" to prevent their coming to America and giving our own plane industry the benefit of their experience Italy, says the grapevine, had three serious internal revolts to cope with last month in addition to her Greek troubles Among the British actions aiming to undermine Hitler is the radio broadcasting of the Belgian. Dutch, Norwegian, Czech and Polish national anthems every night Guest of honor at a banquet given at Vichy recently by Franch aviators of both world wars was Joseph Kessel, the famous novelist .Kessel, who was one of France's great aces of the first war, recently was offered immunity from the anti-Jewish legislation of France—but refused without thanks ... "I need no pardon," he told the official who informed him that his case would be considered axceptional.

K.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13. 1940 fJemsti Flcridftar PAGE SEVEN B'nai B'rith Notes By HAROLD TURK The regular December business meeting of Sholem Lodge held at t |i, Miami Woman's Club last Tuesday night was well attended and provided plenty of entertainment and excitement Thanks to the elections and the wit of our President. uratulations go to the folg Brethren who were elected to office: Abe Aronovitz. |i nt; Burnett Roth, first vice president; Milton A. Friedman. M-eond vice president. Louis Heimi.n, recording secretary; Harold Turk, financial secretary; Walttr C. Kovner. treasurer; J. Aron Abbott, monitor; A. Louis Mechlowitz. assistant monitor; Tred Shochet. guardian; James Leonard, warden; A! Berkeley, thru year trustee; Dr. Elias Freidus. Carl Wcinkle. Harry Zukernick. one year trustees While congratulating these newly i '.c cted officers, we should not overlook the splendid work that the i utgoing administration did for our Lodge and the fine example ihey set for their successors Top honors go to Brother Jack Abbott, who did such a pel b in leading our lar^e oration. Every other officer and chairman of committees deservi special recognition for cooperation and tireI ;•<... To Brother 1-. o | Eisenstein. for the swell job lie j did as chairman of the memberjship drive ... In spite of the fact that a number of members were dropped from the rolls because of default in dues, we now have over 1.000 members, which is an increase of almost 400 for this year Our gratitude to Brother Fred Shochet who has done such a capable job throughout the year in publicising B'nai B'rith activities and who manfested unboundless patience with your columnist in one or two regards And to countless other members who served on committees throughout the year and who helped the cause of B'nai B'rith in general and Sholem Lodge in particular. It was nice to see Arthur Evans of the Evans Hotel back from the North and at our meeting; to see Mattie Bandler after an absence of some time; and to have Dr. Freidus back with us and most interesting to listen to Brother Harry Simonhoff deliver an unusually good report on the Anti-Defamation Committee Brother Simonhoff informs us that arrangements have been completed for an Anti-Defamation office which will he maintained and sponsored by the Grand Lodge t<> be located right hi re in Miami and that the office will have at its head Brother William Boxerman, a very capable worker in this field with many years of experience. As Brother Simonhoff put it. B'nai B'rith Anti-Defamation Committee is no longer strictly an AntiDefamation Committee but a "General Defense Committee" • Apropos with B'nai B'rith i Anti-Defamation, it is most pleasing to hear that Brother Maurice Bisgyer. National Secretary of B'nai B'rith. was selected by United States Solicitor General Biddle to act on his staff to observe the Jewish problem in this country in connection with National Defense and General Welfare We can well be proud of being a member of an organization which time and time again has received national recognition Our best wishes to Brother Ben LeVine who is still confined at home for a complete and speedy recovery. Brother LeVine's absence from our meetings is very conspicuous and we feel the loss of his services We hope that Brothers Dr. Charles Werblow. Al Mechlowitz and Abe Aronovitz really get their chance to speak at some subsequent meeting They weren't very successful Tuesday night Speaking about Abe Aronovitz. we'll hold him to that promise to make the meetings short We arc very happy to have the A. Z. A. boys attend our meetings especially when they bring their "Sweethearts" along in the persons of the Misses Miriam Bender. Roberta Goshen. and Anyce Getzug Speaking about the A. Z. A. boys, those "I you who have not as yet bought your tickets for the annual A. Z. A Sweetheart Dance, which will be held at the Alcazar Hotel Roof Garden on December 22nd, should do sci as this dance will be a most enjoable and interesting one For tickets, you may consult Irving Ginsburg. any of the A. 7. A. boys, the B'nai B'rith office or my office • • • PLAIN TALK (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4) Sholem Lodge proudly announces that it will hold another I one of its always successful dances this Sunday evening. December 15th. at 9 p. m. at the Blackstone Hotel Gardens. Miami Beach. There will be entertainment, dancing. refreshments, and everything else to make this December Dance the best affair of the year.

I felt reassured: Here it staled that gentiles were really the exclusive keepers of civilization "Carefully restricted gentile clientele ... acceptable, civilized people." Here was the proof—those pictures of the civilized guests of the hotel; they were sunning on the beach, or playing shuffleboard, or dancing. It was all the loveliest manifestations of civilization, far from all the dreadful things of the gentiles who had so frightened me. I felt repentant. Yes, I said, this only goes to show into what error the mind may fall when it undertakes, as mine did. to judge a whole people, such as the gentiles, by the nazis and other murderers among them. I could even feel hopeful for civilization. This hotel was selecting its gentiles carefully for the sake of civilization; it keeps only 250 of them at a time, allows only to these 250 the privicherished all these years. 250 at lege of paying $24 a day for twin beds in order to be counted among the civilized—a sort of aristocracy of civilization—perhaps a last bulwark of civilization. I could conceive of a happy situation at the end of everything, when civilization has at last fallen into what seems to be lasting night, when the gentiles have almost wiped each other out. Then this hotel will give light. The gentiles it will have cherished all these years, 250 at a time, will be the saving remnant of civilization. They will he like the drop of oil.left in the holy lamp of the temple afti r the pagans were driven out of it. But this, perhaps, is not a good analogy since the temple was a Jewish temple and the lamp was something holy Of the Jews, and the Jews are not counted among the civilized by the hotel people So I felt much heartened as I contemplated the future of civilization and read the hotel's pamphlet—"A carefully restricted gentile clientele ..." I am thinking of the second coming of Christ which many prophets believe is imminent, and for which I myself earnestly hope. If Christ comes back he may find his way to Miami Beach. may come even to this hotel tor shelter from the night. Though he is a Jew. educated rabhmieally, I plead with the hotel management to let him in. They can take my word for it that he is the most civilized of men—a most worthy associate of their 250 guests.

MILK IS DENIED TO
LI
OVER 5 TUB OLD
Lisbon (WNS)Nazi authori-
ties in Cracow, capital of the
Polish government-general have
decreed that henceforth milk
cards will not be issued for Jew-
ish children over five years of
age. it was reported here
In the future only German
children will receive whole milk
rations. Polish children will re-
ceive half portions, as will Jew-
ish children under five years.
The property of Jews remain-
ing in Cracow will be confiscat-
ed by the local Nazi authorities,
it was learned here. All Jewish
corporations will be liquidated.
The Nazi press in Cracow has
launched a new campaign against
Jews still in Cracow despite pre-
vious expulsion orders. The of-
ficial press made demands that
these Jews be forcibly deported
and their property confiscated
Earlier Nazi deportations re-
sulted in 20.000 Jews leaving
Cracow for some other part of
Poland. Many Jews remained,
however, claiming they had no
other place to go. The new de-
cree stipulated that Cracow
Jews who do not leave "volun-
tarily" will be forcibly ejected.

The Jews of the city were giv-

ficials.

By Al S#l
PROF. BERGSON
What civilized France thinks of the anti-Jewish course
taken by the Petain Government under pressure from Ger-
many is best illustrated by the action of Henri Bergson, the
famous philosopher and Nobel prize winner.
Prof. Bergson is a Jew of Polish descent. However, he nev-
er considered himself Jewish. In fact, one of his books dealing
with the philosophy of religion aroused a good deal of criti-
cism among Jews because it entirely omitted any reference
to the Jewish religion.
But when the Petain administration recently offered the 81-
year-old philosopher an exemption from the anti-Jewish laws in
order to enable him to continue to serve as professor at the
College of France. Bergson rejected this "generous offer. He,
who never attached much importance to his Jewishness. dem-
onstratively refused to be the exception while other Jews in
France were being treated as second class citizens and deprived
of the rights to serve French interests.
There is no doubt that Bergson. in demonstrating his hat-
red of the anti-Semitic course in France, did it as one who con-
siders himself a Frenchman rather than a Jew. There is also
no doubt that many other French scientists would similarly dis-
play their resentment against the anti-Jewish laws if they had
the occasion. The anti-Semitic decrees of the Vichy Govern-
ment are far from representing the sentiments of the French
people. Neither in occupied nor in unoccupied France do they
Teflect the actual wishes of the French population. There is
none today in France who can understand why French Jews
are punished for the treachery committed by the Lavals and
his like who sold out France to Hitler. The demonstrative act
of Prof Bergson will, no doubt, be applauded by many non-
Jews in France as it will by those outside of France.____________
.victims of Nazi brutality who it
I had been feared would be denied

But while doing all in their

have at last found haven in thiir
national home, the Jews of Pales-
tine are not losing sight of Mr.

ence" of the refugees and had
decided to permit them to stay
in the holy land, was greeted ev-
erywhere with enthusiasm.
In making his disclosure in the ,
House of Commons. Mr. Hall stat- jment the same treatment that had
ed that the 1600 refugees would been planned for the Patna pas-
be deducted from the next Pales- I sengers. Heartened by
tine immigration quota. He re-
peated the warning also that all
future illegal immigrants would
be sent to some other British col-
ony.
The enthusiasm of the Jewish
community here was tempered
by the fact that the death toll
of Patria victims rose to 55 with
the recovery by divers of 11 more
bodies.
The Yishuv is now applying it-
self with renewed vigor to the
tremendous task of supplying
adequate food and clothing to the
1,593 Jewish refugees interned at
the camp in Athlit and to the
several injured still in the hos-
pital
The concentration of relief
agencies on the task of providing
large quantites of the necessary
materials is meeting with the
fullest possible co-operation from
every member of Palestine's Jew-
ish population, which is happy at
the possibility of affording
warm welcome to the terrorized
pionship of their cause by prom-
inent members of parliament like
Colonel Josiah C. Wedgwood,
they are taking council as to the
best methods of further proced-
ure to convince the government
of the desirability of admitting
into the Jewish National Home
all refugee Jews who seek sanc-
tuary here.
CANTEEN DESTROYED;
ANOTHER ONE OPENED
London (WNS)The courage
of London's Jews in the face of
fierce Nazi aerial attacks was
demonstrated again when a Nazi
bombed scored a direct hit on
an emergency food canteen op-
ened by the Polish Jewish Ref-
ugee Fund.
Within 24 hours another can-
teen, much larger than the one
destroyed, was opened in another
section of London. The same
fund has opened a clinic to care
for victims of the Nazi bombings.
A folder from a Miami Beach
hotel informs me as follows: "A
caivfully restricted gentile clien-
tele assures pleasant daily asso-
ciation with acceptable, civilized
peoplethe sort you would wel-
come in your own home.''
Now I am very fond of civil-
ized people. I have often been
heard saying to my wife that
what the world needs is more
civilized people. I say this with
a pounding of my fist on the arm
of my chair, a gesture that indi-
cates how firm I am in that con-
viction. The savages are run-
ning the world and there's no
telling what it's all coming to, I
say.
The only comfort we have is
that my wife and I are getting
along in years and we may be
gone before the savages get
around to us.
So you can imagine my pleas-
ure at discovering a place where
civilized people are kept. Of
course. I myself am one of those
men who are not included in
the hotel's classification of civi-
lized people, since I am no gen-
tile; but I am always happy to
look at the civilized from a dist-
ance- i
My admiration for the civil-
ized includes such people as Tos-
cannini, Roosevelt, Bishop Mc-
Connell. Rockefeller. Norman
Thomas and Churchill. Until I
received the hotel's folder I also
counted Jesus and Einstein
among the civilized of the hu-
man race. But they appear not
to be of the civilized, since these
hotel people suggest that only
gentiles are the civilized. I can
not dispute this with them inas-
much as a hotel that charges $25
a day for twin beds between the
dates of Jan. 20 and March 20
must be authoritative
Until and including Jan. 19 the
twin beds cost $16 a day, but on
Jan. 20 the price advances $8
all overnight. I do not feel com-
petent to argue human values
with people whose sense of val-
ues is so finely balanced that
they know precisely that twin
beds worth $16 on Jan 19 are
worth $24 on Jan. 20.
At the time I received the ho-
tel's folder I had been rather
discouraged with the way civili-
zation was going to hell. I had
just read in Harper's an article
on "Europe's Revolt Against Civ-
ilization" by William Henry
Chamberlain. Mr. Chamberlain
seemed in deepest gloom and his
discouragement took hold of my
heart as well.
The same day's events suggest-
ed that Mr. Chamberlain prob-
ably was right. The Iron Guard
in Rumania had just gone to the
jail and lynched in a mass 64
members of former King Carol"s
government. Probably I should
have said. Well, it seems one
pack of wolves is devouring an-
other pack. Instead I felt
shocked for. though I am no gen-
tile, I appear to have in me some
vestigial remains of civilization.
This caused me to feel that it is
quite immoral for gentiles to
slaughter other gentiles without
any trial. The massacre looked
like dusk falling on civilization.
What troubled me particularly
was that gentiles had done this
hideous thing. Some of my best
friends are gentiles and I re-
frained from mentioning the hor-
rible matter to them, lest they
get the impression that I believed
all gentiles were like that.
One of them did bring it up on
his own account, however, but I
was at pains to dismiss it at
once. I was quick to tell him
that all gentiles couldn't be
blamed for it "It takes all
kinds of gentiles to make a
world," I said.
Yet my mind remained dis-
tressed: Civilization! And what
future can there be for a civili-
zation in which gentiles murder
other gentiles in a mass slaugh-
ter as of cattle in stockyards.
Civilization has descended to the
slaughter pen and human life has
been reduced to the indignity of
a stuck pig.
Besides, as my unhappy mind
reflected, the unspeakable nazis
are gentiles, too. And the way
they are lavishing civilization!
But whatever unjust doubts
had arisen in my mind concern-
ing the fate of civilization among

TRANS-ATLANTIC GRAPEVINE
With assassinations of Nazi leaders mounting up in Nor-
way, the Nazis are beginning to suspect that the Nordics don't
like them, and are organizing special storm troop units that
are supposed to persuade the Norwegians that it's healthier to
support Hitler Among the inmates of Franch jails are Paul
Louis Weiler and Marcel Bloch. two famous airplane designers
against whom the Vichy government couldn't even trump up
charges, but whom it placed under "administrative internment"
to prevent their coming to America and giving our own plane
industry the benefit of their experience Italy, says the grape-
vine, had three serious internal revolts to cope with last month
in addition to her Greek troubles Among the British actions
aiming to undermine Hitler is the radio broadcasting of the
Belgian. Dutch, Norwegian, Czech and Polish national anthems
every night Guest of honor at a banquet given at Vichy re-
cently by Franch aviators of both world wars was Joseph Kes-
sel, the famous novelist .Kessel, who was one of France's
great aces of the first war, recently was offered immunity from
the anti-Jewish legislation of Francebut refused without
thanks ... "I need no pardon," he told the official who in-
formed him that his case would be considered axceptional.
YOU SHOULD KNOW
LEF, the new dateline now making its appearance in the
Latin-American press, replacing the Nazi-controlled Havas ser-
vice of France, stands for the British Reuter news agency .
The initials stand for Liberty, Equality, Fraternity Every-
body knows that "Andre Simone," the name signed to
"J'Accuse," that excellent expose of the events leading to the
fall of France, is a pseudonym, but schools of thought on the
real identity of the author differ One group maintains that
he is Andre Maurois, who is supposed to have combined his
own first name with that of his wife Pitrre Lazareff, famous
French editor now in this country, maintains, however, that the
book was written by a German Jew, Simon Katz, who had prev-
iously published, also anonymously, "The Brown Book of the
Hitler Terror," and, under the name O. K. Simon, a volume on
"The Nazi Conspiracy in Spain" Interesting memoirs to
which our younger readers can look forward will be those of
Unity Mitford. the English girl, who for years was Hitler's great-
est admirer Unity is writing the memoirs now, but insists
that they won't be published until after her death Don't be
surprised if the Jewish birth rate in Palestine, which has been
lagging far behind that of the Arabs, begins to rise sharply .
It's the Yishuv's way of counteracting the anti-immigration pol-
icy of the British administration Florida reports a great deal
of the capital which is backing that state's current building
activities is supplied by refugees who managed to salvage
some of their cash and are investing it in American real estate.
JEWISH NEWS
Louis D. Brandeis' and Chaim Weizmann's views on con-
temporary Zionist problems and the political attitude to be tak-
en toward England, are far apart Incidentally, when Weiz-
mann comes to this country, which will be some time next
month, he will make an important announcement which may be
even more far-reaching in its consequences than the publication
of the Balfour declaration was in 1917 News about a big
American Jewish action in aid of Britain will break soon
Franz Werfel's speech at the New York U. J. A. dinner last
week was broadcast to the four corners of this country ... If
any one has any doubts as to what the Jewish policy should
be at this time, let him read the Austrian Jewish author's pro-
nunciamento The rumblings about a separation of the JDC
and the UPA for the next campaign are growing stronger
But we've become used to these preludes to joint action in the
last tew years Too bad that the weekly articles which Louis
Lipsky writes for the Yiddish daily. The Day, aren't made avail-
able to the English-reading public The veteran Zionist lead-
er doesn't pull his punches on any question ... If you're in
New York during the last two weeks of this month be sure to
drop in at the Society for the Advancement of Judaism, where
Gertrude Samuel will be giving the American public its first
opportunity to see her drawings and water-colors of Pales-
tinian landscapes and types Gertrude, you remember, is
the wife of Maurice Samuel, noted lecturer and author of "The
Great Hatred," and many other volumes.
FROM OCCUPIED FRANCE
French newspapers are having their troubles keeping on the
right side of the Nazi authorities One recently was suspend
ed for reporting that Hitler had slapped his thigh in laughter
over British efforts to fight himthe idea being so god-like a
being as Badolf would never indulge in so human a gesture
Another paper, laboring under the delusion that its function was
to bring news, described the removal of 1,400 carloads of ma-

Notes
By HAROLD TURK
The regular December business
meeting of Sholem Lodge held at
t|i, Miami Woman's Club last
Tuesday night was well attended
and provided plenty of entertain-
ment and excitement Thanks
to the elections and the wit of
our President.
uratulations go to the fol-
g Brethren who were elect-
ed to office: Abe Aronovitz.
|i nt; Burnett Roth, first
vice president; Milton A. Fried-
man. M-eond vice president. Louis
Heimi.n, recording secretary;
Harold Turk, financial secretary;
Walttr C. Kovner. treasurer; J.
Aron Abbott, monitor; A. Louis
Mechlowitz. assistant monitor;
Tred Shochet. guardian; James
Leonard, warden; A! Berkeley,
thru year trustee; Dr. Elias
Freidus. Carl Wcinkle. Harry
Zukernick. one year trustees .
While congratulating these new-
ly i '.c cted officers, we should not
overlook the splendid work that
the i utgoing administration did
for our Lodge and the fine ex-
ample ihey set for their success-
ors Top honors go to Brother
Jack Abbott, who did such a pel -
b in leading our lar^e or-
ation. Every other officer
and chairman of committees de-
servi special recognition for
cooperation and tire-
I ;<... To Brother 1-. o
| Eisenstein. for the swell job lie
j did as chairman of the member-
jship drive ... In spite of the fact
that a number of members were
dropped from the rolls because of
default in dues, we now have ov-
er 1.000 members, which is an in-
crease of almost 400 for this
year Our gratitude to Brother
Fred Shochet who has done such
a capable job throughout the
year in publicising B'nai B'rith
activities and who manfested un-
boundless patience with your col-
umnist in one or two regards
And to countless other members
who served on committees
throughout the year and who
helped the cause of B'nai B'rith
in general and Sholem Lodge in
particular.
It was nice to see Arthur Ev-
ans of the Evans Hotel back from
the North and at our meeting;
to see Mattie Bandler after an
absence of some time; and to
have Dr. Freidus back with us
. and most interesting to list-
en to Brother Harry Simonhoff
deliver an unusually good report
on the Anti-Defamation Commit-
tee Brother Simonhoff informs
us that arrangements have been
completed for an Anti-Defama-
tion office which will he main-
tained and sponsored by the
Grand Lodge t<> be located right
hi re in Miami and that the office
will have at its head Brother
William Boxerman, a very cap-
able worker in this field with
many years of experience. As
Brother Simonhoff put it. B'nai
B'rith Anti-Defamation Commit-
tee is no longer strictly an Anti-
Defamation Committee but a
"General Defense Committee"
Apropos with B'nai B'rith i
Anti-Defamation, it is most pleas-

the gentiles wen at once dissi-
pated when I opened the folder
and spread it wide before my
dazzled eyes. I felt reassured:
Here it staled that gentiles were
really the exclusive keepers of
civilization "Carefully re-
stricted gentile clientele ... ac-
ceptable, civilized people." .
Here was the proofthose pic-
tures of the civilized guests of
the hotel; they were sunning on
the beach, or playing shuffle-
board, or dancing. It was all the
loveliest manifestations of civi-
lization, far from all the dreadful
things of the gentiles who had
so frightened me.
I felt repentant. Yes, I said,
this only goes to show into what
error the mind may fall when it
undertakes, as mine did. to judge
a whole people, such as the gen-
tiles, by the nazis and other mur-
derers among them.
I could even feel hopeful for
civilization. This hotel was se-
lecting its gentiles carefully for
the sake of civilization; it keeps
only 250 of them at a time, al-
lows only to these 250 the privi-
cherished all these years. 250 at
lege of paying $24 a day for twin
beds in order to be counted
among the civilizeda sort of
aristocracy of civilizationper-
haps a last bulwark of civiliza-
tion.
I could conceive of a happy
situation at the end of every-
thing, when civilization has at
last fallen into what seems to be
lasting night, when the gentiles
have almost wiped each other
out. Then this hotel will give
light. The gentiles it will have
cherished all these years, 250 at
a time, will be the saving rem-
nant of civilization.
They will he like the drop of
oil.left in the holy lamp of the
temple afti r the pagans were
driven out of it. But this, per-
haps, is not a good analogy since
the temple was a Jewish temple
and the lamp was something holy
Of the Jews, and the Jews are
not counted among the civilized
by the hotel people
So I felt much heartened as I
contemplated the future of civi-
lization and read the hotel's
pamphlet"A carefully restricted
gentile clientele ..." I am think-
ing of the second coming of
Christ which many prophets be-
lieve is imminent, and for which
I myself earnestly hope.
If Christ comes back he may
find his way to Miami Beach.
may come even to this hotel tor
shelter from the night. Though
he is a Jew. educated rabhmieal-
ly, I plead with the hotel man-
agement to let him in.
They can take my word for it
that he is the most civilized of
mena most worthy associate of
their 250 guests.

CAPACITY CROWD ATTENDS
BOOK REVIEW AT "Y"
One of the largest crowds ever
isscmbled at the Y took place
'ast Wednesday evening, when
over 250 people crowded the Y
auditorium to hear Rabbi Zwit-
unique, and the crowd was held
spellbound until he concluded. A
very interesting feature of the
evening was the introduction to
the audience of Mrs. Stanley C.
Myers, a niece of the author of
the book.
Much credit is due to Mrs. Joel
Belov, chairman of the Book of
the Month Club, who sponsored
this affair.
SUB JUNIOR DIVISION
Mr. Grossman requests that all
boys between the ages of 13 and
16 who frequent the Y commun-
icate with him immediately. He
is planning a meeting of this
group.
FEDERATION
We are very happy to announce
that the Y is playing a big part
in the Federation drive. Practic-
ally every leader in the Federa-
tion is a member of the Y. This
is particularly true of the Wo-
men's Division.
HOME CAMP
Mrs. Leon Lieberman. chair-
man of the Home Camp commit-
tee, and Maurice Grossman, i \-
ecutive director, announce that
the annual Chanukah reunion
will be held on Thursday. De-
cember 26. More details will he
given lat r.
The Y today' has as fine and
up-to-date an auditorium as can
be found anywhere in the city,
seating approximately 250 com-
fortably, with loud-speaker sys-
I tern and plenty of fans for cool-
ing. If in need of a place to
meet, consult with Mr. Grossman
at the Y by phoning 3-4012.
In these times, when we are
9Q seeking for a better understand-
94 ing between Jew and non-Jew.
