FREEDOM'S BIRTH
By Moshe Davis
Chanuka, the Festival of Lights
commemorating the successful
Hasmonean revolt and the sub-
sequent birth of freedom, is uni-
versally observed today. It was
not always so. Originally, seri-
ous attempts were made to de-
preciate its importance, as is evi-
' denced by the fact that Chanuka
was invested with no aura of
sanctity. (Work is permitted, ex-
cept that in the evening when
the lights are burning, the women
must cease their labors.) More-
ever, except for the lighting of
the candles, no specific ritual was
devised. But strangest of all is
the fact that Chanuka, although
dated in a period which provides
us with a plethora of source ma-
terial, is consciously disregarded
by the writers of that time. Hard-
ly a trace of this whole glorious
Maccnbean era is found in all
ancient Hebrew literature Out-

CHANUKA BEGINS
DECEMBER 25
For the first time in more
than fifty years Chanuka.
the joyous holiday observed
by Jews throughout the
world for more than 20 cen-
turies, this year will fall on
Dec. 25th, Christmas Day.
It will be observed for eight
days by local and world
Jewry.
The terrific gloom and
pain now knawing at the
hearts of humanity will be
temporarily put aside in the
faith that the miracle which
saved Israel in the past will
save all mankind today.
TROPICAL PARK OPENS
TODAY FOR FALL MEET
When the 1940 coronation of
King Horse takes place with
pomp and ceremony today at
Tropical Park, the first shrill
notes of "Boots and Saddles" will
be answered by a band of pranc-
ing sprinters, three-year-olds and
up, tilting the lid on what prom-
ises to be Greater Miami's most
brilliant racing season.

POLICE WARSAW'S
NEWEST GHETTO
Lisbon (WNS) A Jewish mi-
litia, supervised and directed by
the Nazi Gestapo, will police the
recently established Jewish
ghetto in Warsaw, it was reported
here. At the same time Nazi
sources disclosed that the job of
herding Warsaw's Jews into the
ghetto has been completed.
In addition to the police work,
a Jewish force has been raised
to supervise the ghetto's sanitary
facilities. Recruits for the police
and sanitary squads will be taken
from Jewish high school gradu-
ates, who have never run afoul
of Gestapo regulations.
A post office has been opened
in the ghetto but letters written
in Yiddish will not be accepted.
All letters must be written in
German or Polish.
Regulations permit Jews in the
ghetto the use of a limited num-
ber of synagogues. Special per-
mission must be obtained from

REFUGEES DROWN
AS UNFIT VESSEL
SINKS IN STORM
Istanbul (WNS)At least 223
European Jewish refugees, in-
cluding 60 children, were
drowned when a tiny and un-
seaworthy sailing vessel, the Sal-
vator. which was transporting
380 refugees from Bulgaria to
Palestine, broke apart and sank
in a raging storm in the Sea of
Marmara.
Many of the survivors were ex-
pected to die as the result of ex-
posure in the stormy sea. They
were rushed in motor trucks and
buses to the village Silivri and
housed in the village synagogue.
A delegation from the Jewish
community in Istanbul visited the
survivors, bringing food, clothing
and medical supplies.
The 60-ton sailing vessel,
equipped with a small auxiliary
motor which broke down at the
height of the storm, was char-
tered by Jewish refugees who
wore expelled from Dobruja by
Bulgaria, which recently recov-
ered the territory from Rumania.
According to reports reachnig
here the Salvator was terribly
overloaded as the result of Bul-
garia's insistence that as many
Jews as possible be put aboard,
ship left Varna flying the
Uruguayan flag.
Turkish authorities arrested
the captain of the ship after
hearing testimony from several
of the survivors. One of those
I washed ashore was a journalist
who told authorities here:
"The Bulgarian authorities in-
| sisted on our departure and re-
fused to allow us time to pre-
pare for the voyage. The vessel
had neither cabins nor bunks.
Cramped one against the other.
we were driven aboard, towed
out into the Black Sea by a tug
and abandoned to our fate.
"Fortunately, we were driven
into Turkish waters and a pass-
ing motor boat towed us into the
Straits. At Istanbul we stopped
for a while but eventually the
captain gave the order to weigh
anchor and we headed for the
Sea of Marmara.
"Suddenly a violent shock
aroused us. The ensuing scenes
were terrible. Prayers and
shreiks mingled with the howling
of the gale, and in the pitch dark-
ness the white-crested waves
broke over us and water poured
through thousands of fissures as
the ancient craft began to break
up.
"There were hardly any life-
boats on board and they disap-
peared instantly. There was one
small rowing boat aboard and
we were 300. Suddenly the vessel
broke its back and precipitated
everyone into the raging sea."
Following his arrest, the cap-

THE LESSON OF CHANUKA
Chanuka. the Feast of the Maccabees, celebrates the vic-
tory of a handful over legions; of the weak but brave over the
strong but cruel; of democracy over brutal dictatorship.
Slay repeats itself. The victory which a small group of
Jews enjoVdTver the Greco-Syrian armies ~"TZ
ago serves as encouragement to us Jews m the belief! that the
Nazi hordes now terrorizing Europe will similarly be defeated.
The brave and successful resistance which the small Greek
nation is now displaying against the numerically superior
Italian forces is another proof justifying this belief.
Ever since David defeated Goliath, and later when he
handful of Macabees defeated the conquering Syrians, the
Jewish people have learned not to lose courage when dealing
with an%nemy who may be physically or numerically strong-
er That is why we Jews are certain that despite his temporary
victories Hitler will eventually be defeated
"I, is not the military and also not the brutal force that con-
quers, but the spirit!" is the old Jewish teaching. The marvel-
ous spirit which England and Greece are now showing is some-
thing of the kind which resulted in the Macabee victory over
the stronger invading forces more than 2.000 years ago
Justice Louis D. Brandeis. in commenting in a public ad-
dress on the victory of spirit which the celebration of Chanuka
marks, said: "As part of the eternal world-wide struggle for
democracy, the struggle of the Macabees is of eternal world-
wide interest. It is a struggle of the Jews of today as well as
of those of two thousand years ago. It is a struggle in which
all Americans. non-Jews as well as Jews, should be vitally in-
terested because they are vitally affected."
These words, spoken by Brandeis exactly 28 years ago,
stand true today as never before. The Chanuka of 1940 meets
the democratic world at the height of its decisive battle aga.ns
the strong forces of Nazi-Fascist dictatorship. We are full of
hope that this battle will prove victorious for democracy just as
the Jewish battle for democracy some 2.100 years ago proved
victorious for the Macabees.

a large attendance is expected.
side of the MACCABEES I and
II in the Apocrypha, no accurate
description of the observance is
given.
The reasons for this strange si-
lence are three-fold. First, there
was no love lost between the
Rabbis and the Hasmonean dy-
nasty. The rulers, each in his turn
added the crown of kingship to
the priestly office. Such corn-
tempt for tradition was not to
be tolerated, for it was clearly
taught that only the descendants
of the royal line of David were
entitled to rule as kings. In the
second place, the Hasmonean dy-
nasty identified itself with the
Sadduccecs. thereby contending
with the Pharisees (the Rabbinic
party.) The third reason is to
be found in the fact that the
prevailing political circumstances
were adverse to such observance.
The Jews, ruled by Rome,
thought it unwise to advertise
their past rebellions. In particu-
lar Rabbi Judah the Patriarch,
the compiler of the Mishnah. was
of such mind. He was extremely
anxious to void those events in
the past which might be repug-
nant to Rome. He even hoped to
abolish Tisha Bov and Purim as
well as Chanuka. but whereas
he was eminently unsuccessful
with the first two. he did suc-
ceed in making Chanuka lesa
popular by refraining from men-
tioning it in the Mishnah.
It was only later when the
hatred for the Hasmoreans had
been transferred to Horod and
when the Roman Empire had
paled into obscurity that Jewish
writers found it desirable and op-
portune to record the events of
the Hasmonean uprising. In the
seventh century there appeared
a very interesting account, writ-
ten by a Babylonian or Syrian
Jew and entitled. "The Scroll of
the Hasmoneans."
This book, the exact date of
which is uncertain, was elevated
almost to the position of canoni-
cal sanctity. Saadyah Gaon was
especially pleased with it. for he
translated the Scroll into Arabic
and prepared a special introduc-
tion. And the Scroll gained uni-
versal popularity when it was
later translated into Hebrew.
Persian. Latin. German and
Spanish. After a while it became
a regular feature of the Chanuka
synagogue service. Soon some
scribes included it even in their
copies of the Bible. In Yemen
they read the Arabic and Ara-
maic copies, verse by verse, as
they were accustomed to read
all the books of the Bible.
The account of the Scroll does
not tally with the historical ac-
count of the Maccabean uprising.
For the reasons already enumer-
ated the story had undergone
much editing. Judah is almost
entirely ignored. All laurel
wreaths are placed on the heads
of Mattathias and the High
Priest, Johanan. Moreover, the
name "Chanuka" does not ap-
pear in the Scroll, thus attesting
perhaps to its early origin.
What followed now are ex-
cerpts from a translation pre-
pared by Moses Gastor from an
eighteenth century copy in his
possession, except for the intro-
ductory sentences which replace
my deletions from the original
text.
CONTINUED NEXT WEEK
TRANSATLANTIC
Have we ever pointed out to you that Jean Chiappe, the
French police officer who was killed while flying to Spria to
teach the natives a lesson, was the owner of Le Gringoire,
France's most anti-Semitic paper? Being no numerologist,
we can't cite chapter and verse, but there's a story current that
numerologically Hitler is mentioned in the Book of Revelations,
and in no complimentary manner either. Europe's most
famous astrologists. incidentally, say that it's written in the
stars that Hitler will die in 1941 ... It's being whispered around
town that the Italian fiascoor quitzkrieg, as somebody has
called itin the Near East may cause Hitler to bring Fifth Col-
umn activities to a head in India. ... But don't let anybody tell
you that Hitler thinks he's God Almighty Himself. Even
Gabby Goebbels claims only that the Fuehrer is the inter-
mediary between his people and the throne of God The
extent of the freedom now enjoyed by the French can be gauged
by the fact that even a comic strip which used to refer to "Huns''
now must call its villains "Patagonians." The special author-
ization required before any one can go from occupied France
to the unoccupied territory costs five thousand francs for Ary-
ans, but twice as much for Jews.
HOME NEWS
You know, of course, that as Hitler conquers any territory
your Uncle Sam immediately freezes that country's holdings
in the U. S.. to prevent such moneys from coming into Nazi
hands. ... But did you know that German-owned property and
cash in the U. S. is exempt from such freezing? ... We hope
somebody will learn a lesson horn the news that an American
firm, which tried to circumvent the law about the export of
money to Nazi-occupied territories by sending cash through
the mails, finally learned that what the addressee actually re-
ceived was a package of newsprint paper cut to currency
size. Did you relize that this week-end marks the 25th anni-
versary of Henry Ford's effort to end the first world war "before
Christmas?" We don't know what Mr. Ford is doing to
commemorate the occasion, but Rosika Schwimmer. who had
originally given him the idea, recently, together with Irving
Caesar, who also had worked on it. celebrated the anniversary
of the Ford Peace Ship sailing "Good" news for our
Canadian neighbors: The story is that Unity Midord. the English-
woman who used to like Hitler, is being sent to Canada for the
duration. ... If you've been wondering why newsreels prac-
tically never show shots of Naziland, it's because the Nazi
censor insists that the whole newsreel containing such shots
must be submitted to his well-oiled scissors and our news-
reel companies don't like that------We've just heard that a few
years ago the Nazi chemical experts, on reading a report on
carbon research by an American chemist named Drogen, sent
him an offer of an excellent job. Whereupon Mr. Drogen
had the great pleasure of writing back that, as a Jew. he did not
choose to work for Hitler. .
MINIATURE PROFILE
Isaac Stein: He was the gentlest of Yiddish newspaper-
men ... He wasbecause he died last week after a six months
siege of suffering____Stein looked like a Japanese Elder States-
man, though he was no more than fifty-six when the end came.
For more than thirty years he had been a news and feature
writer, first in Montreal, and then, for the last twenty-three years
with the Jewish Morning Journal in New York------He was one
of the best of the Yiddish caption writers. ... He had a sixtn
sense for the timely, condensed heading, fitted exactly into tne
available space. Stein lived quietly, like a Chinese man-
darin. ... He was of a contemplative naturelife to him was
merely an opportunity to watch the human parade go by.
He never joined it. but just looked on and smiled. He 've/j
the theatre____There were moments when he felt that he couia

had never been overtaxed, collapsed. ... It makes one ieei
cleaner and better to have known him. Stein was a rar
phenomenonan unspoiled newspaperman without mane
love for gossip.
THIS AND THAT
Hyman Better, the Manhattan taxi driver who wound upd
his affairs in preparation for his year in the army, and then
rejected because of poor eyesight, insists that anyone wn0
years has been able to wind his way through Tunes &qu"
traffic, as he has, would be able to guide a tank straigm

I was the last to leave and had
it depended on me I would never

When the Salvator was hurled

miles to Silivri to get help. Many

coming of New Members will be
held in our Temple next Friday
evening. Dec. 27th.
This year, the Joint Commit-
tee on Ceremonies of the Central
Conference of American Rabbis
and the Union of American He-
brew Congregations, are recom-
mending to reform congregations
a new Chanukkah service cre-
ated by them. "A Chanukkah
Pageant of Lights" with an im-
pressive brief service has been
especially written in order to
bring the Festival to life in a
reconsecration of the modern
synagogue.
In our Temple, the service will
be combined with a reception and
welcome to new members who
have joned our Temple since
Sept. The affiliation of these
members, adding strength to our
Congregation and to Israel's
Light, shall be linked symboli-
cally with the reconsecration to
the ideals of Chanukkah.
The committee for this service
consists of Mr. J. Gerald Lewis.
Mr. B. W. Slote, Mrs. Max Steuer
and Mr. Harry Boyell. Members
of the congregation new and old,
are invited to attend and bring
their friends.

mittee will be to formulate a

NEWS AROUND TOWN
Did you golf bugs know that
Herman Barron of White Plains.
New York was the only Jew
playing in the Miami $10,000
open? More than two hundred
entered and when your scribe
inquired of Herman why so few
Jews participated in these big
tournaments. Herman replied that
the financial returns were too
meager for the cost involved in
traveling, etc. For your informa-
tion. Mr. Barron just missed
being in the money by two
strokes.

The first condition book, hot
off the press and just released
by Racing Secretary Robert S.
Shelley, provides these sprinters
with the first opportunity of the
meeting, although horsemen are
already thumbing the pages to
find 'spots" for the 2000-plus
thoroughbreds already in Miami
and the additional 500 hitting the
southbound trail.
With a full roster of thorough-
breds registered, including the
250 new stalls, and an additional
1400-plus horses stabled at Hia-
leah, it is assured that the open-
ing eight-race card will list the
best fields ever to answer the
bugle at the Gables course. The
opening also will present an out-
standing array of nationally-
known jockeys headed by WalU,
Lee Taylor, the Houston, Texas
booter who will arrive by air-
plane on the night of Dec. 19th
to continue his great duel with
Jockey Earl Dew for the riding
championship of 1940.
The condition book, listing
races to be run during the first
eight days of the short 16-day
winter meeting, reveals many in-
teresting sidelights. Foremost is
the raising of the minimum purse
level to $1000, gratifying to horse-
men with feed bills to pay and
to turf fans with its promise of
classier sport. On week days
seven races with a $1000 value
have been written, with one fea-
ture race on week-days worth
$1200. and Saturday and holi-
day handicaps graded up to
$2000.
Handicap and allowance horses.
together with high-priced claim- ;
ing platers have been afforded

AMERICAN JEWISH
CONGRESS
As a memorial tribute to the
memory of Mrs. Harry Koretzky
recently deceased member and
officer of the Women's Division
of the American Jewish Con-
gress, a number of fine selected
books will be donated to the Uni-
versity library. Mrs. S. H. Lutsky
is in charge of purchasing the
books. Also a substantial sum
of money raised by the division
is being sent direct to Mrs. Step-
phen Wise, national president of
the Women's Division to be used
for some phase of Congress work
in Mrs. Koretzky's memory.
On Dec. 23rd. the Congress is
holding their annual Garden
Party at the home of the presi-
dent, Mrs. Moses Krieger, 1114
Alton Rd., Miami Beach, at 2:00
p. m. A very fine program fea-
turing the Chanuka theme will
be presented by the program
chairman. Mrs. Dorothy Krieger
Fink will give a fine book re-
view, Mrs. A. J. Jacobs will speak
on Congress facts, Mr. Rudy
Baum, well-known musician and
instructor will present melodies

tion will be a group of songs by
Rev. Maurice Mamches, prom-
inent cantor. Mrs. Milford Brot-
man will be chairman of ar-
rangements. Refreshments will be
served and all members and
friends are cordially invited to

CONGRESS FACTS
The convening council of the
American Jewish Congress has
authorized the summoning of a
national council to discuss the
initiation of an effort to bring
about American Jewish aid to
Great Britain. The conference
will take place throughout the
day and evening on Sunday. Dec.
29, at the Hotel Astor in New
York City. The American Jewish
Congress initiates this vital un-
dertaking after long deliberation.
It is moved by the conviction
that Jews must fave fairly and
squarely the fact that the most
important undertaking in 'the
world today if civilization is to
survive, if freedom is to endure,
if Jews are to live again as free
men, is to prevent the victory of
Hitlerism,

Nazi authorities for the building
of a new synagogue or Hebrew
school. Henceforth, the ghetto
will be administered by a "Jew-
ish council," the chairman of
which will be responsible to War-
saw's Commissioner of Public
Order.
Gestapo agents have cut off
the ghetto from the rest of the
world by a strict censorship. No
news from the outside may be
published inside the ghetto lim-
its. Foreign newspapermen are
not permitted to visit the Jewish
district
The Jews must purchase all
I their requirements from stores
j within the ghetto. This regula-
tion imposes a hardship on the
| Jews since ghetto stores have
| small stocks which are replen-
ished at irregular intervals.
D. N. B.. official Nazi news
agency, reporting on the ghetto,
referred to it as an "independent,
self-sufficient state," and re-
ported that entry into or exit
from the ghetto will be strictly
controlled by police at the "bor-
der" of the Jewish "state."
It was learned also that a con-
stant influx of Jews to Warsaw
from other parts of Poland has
made the housing situation in
the ghetto impossible. With the

It was not always so. Originally, serious attempts were made to depreciate its importance, as is evi' denced by the fact that Chanuka was invested with no aura of sanctity. (Work is permitted, except that in the evening when the lights are burning, the women must cease their labors.) Moreever, except for the lighting of the candles, no specific ritual was devised. But strangest of all is the fact that Chanuka, although dated in a period which provides us with a plethora of source material, is consciously disregarded by the writers of that time. Hardly a trace of this whole glorious Maccnbean era is found in all ancient Hebrew literature Out(CONTINUEO ON PAGZ 4) CHANUKA BEGINS DECEMBER 25 For the first time in more than fifty years Chanuka. the joyous holiday observed by Jews throughout the world for more than 20 centuries, this year will fall on Dec. 25th, Christmas Day. It will be observed for eight days by local and world Jewry. The terrific gloom and pain now knawing at the hearts of humanity will be temporarily put aside in the faith that the miracle which saved Israel in the past will save all mankind today. TROPICAL PARK OPENS TODAY FOR FALL MEET When the 1940 coronation of King Horse takes place with pomp and ceremony today at Tropical Park, the first shrill notes of "Boots and Saddles" will be answered by a band of prancing sprinters, three-year-olds and up, tilting the lid on what promises to be Greater Miami's most brilliant racing season.

At the same time Nazi sources disclosed that the job of herding Warsaw's Jews into the ghetto has been completed. In addition to the police work, a Jewish force has been raised to supervise the ghetto's sanitary facilities. Recruits for the police and sanitary squads will be taken from Jewish high school graduates, who have never run afoul of Gestapo regulations. A post office has been opened in the ghetto but letters written in Yiddish will not be accepted. All letters must be written in German or Polish. Regulations permit Jews in the ghetto the use of a limited number of synagogues. Special permission must be obtained from CONTINUED ON PAGE REFUGEES DROWN AS UNFIT VESSEL SINKS IN STORM Istanbul (WNS)—At least 223 European Jewish refugees, including 60 children, were drowned when a tiny and unseaworthy sailing vessel, the Salvator. which was transporting 380 refugees from Bulgaria to Palestine, broke apart and sank in a raging storm in the Sea of Marmara. Many of the survivors were expected to die as the result of exposure in the stormy sea. They were rushed in motor trucks and buses to the village Silivri and housed in the village synagogue. A delegation from the Jewish community in Istanbul visited the survivors, bringing food, clothing and medical supplies. The 60-ton sailing vessel, equipped with a small auxiliary motor which broke down at the height of the storm, was chartered by Jewish refugees who wore expelled from Dobruja by Bulgaria, which recently recovered the territory from Rumania. According to reports reachnig here the Salvator was terribly overloaded as the result of Bulgaria's insistence that as many Jews as possible be put aboard, ship left Varna flying the Uruguayan flag. Turkish authorities arrested • the captain of the ship after hearing testimony from several of the survivors. One of those I washed ashore was a journalist who told authorities here: "The Bulgarian authorities in| sisted on our departure and refused to allow us time to prepare for the voyage. The vessel had neither cabins nor bunks. Cramped one against the other. we were driven aboard, towed out into the Black Sea by a tug and abandoned to our fate. "Fortunately, we were driven into Turkish waters and a passing motor boat towed us into the Straits. At Istanbul we stopped for a while but eventually the captain gave the order to weigh anchor and we headed for the Sea of Marmara. "Suddenly a violent shock aroused us. The ensuing scenes were terrible. Prayers and shreiks mingled with the howling of the gale, and in the pitch darkness the white-crested waves broke over us and water poured through thousands of fissures as the ancient craft began to break up. "There were hardly any lifeboats on board and they disappeared instantly. There was one small rowing boat aboard and we were 300. Suddenly the vessel broke its back and precipitated everyone into the raging sea." Following his arrest, the cap(CONTINUED ON PAGE 5)

BIRON) *1 THE LESSON OF CHANUKA Chanuka. the Feast of the Maccabees, celebrates the victory of a handful over legions; of the weak but brave over the strong but cruel; of democracy over brutal dictatorship. Slay repeats itself. The victory which a small group of Jews enjoVdTver the Greco-Syrian armies ~"TZ ago serves as encouragement to us Jews m the belief! that the Nazi hordes now terrorizing Europe will similarly be defeated. The brave and successful resistance which the small Greek nation is now displaying against the numerically superior Italian forces is another proof justifying this belief. Ever since David defeated Goliath, and later when he handful of Macabees defeated the conquering Syrians, the Jewish people have learned not to lose courage when dealing with an%nemy who may be physically or numerically stronger That is why we Jews are certain that despite his temporary victories Hitler will eventually be defeated "I, is not the military and also not the brutal force that conquers, but the spirit!" is the old Jewish teaching. The marvelous spirit which England and Greece are now showing is something of the kind which resulted in the Macabee victory over the stronger invading forces more than 2.000 years ago Justice Louis D. Brandeis. in commenting in a public address on the victory of spirit which the celebration of Chanuka marks, said: "As part of the eternal world-wide struggle for democracy, the struggle of the Macabees is of eternal worldwide interest. It is a struggle of the Jews of today as well as of those of two thousand years ago. It is a struggle in which all Americans. non-Jews as well as Jews, should be vitally interested because they are vitally affected." These words, spoken by Brandeis exactly 28 years ago, stand true today as never before. The Chanuka of 1940 meets the democratic world at the height of its decisive battle aga.ns the strong forces of Nazi-Fascist dictatorship. We are full of hope that this battle will prove victorious for democracy just as the Jewish battle for democracy some 2.100 years ago proved victorious for the Macabees.

An elaborate program has been prepared for the evening by the Junior B'nai B'nth Order and a large attendance is expected. side of the MACCABEES I and II in the Apocrypha, no accurate description of the observance is given. The reasons for this strange silence are three-fold. First, there was no love lost between the Rabbis and the Hasmonean dynasty. The rulers, each in his turn added the crown of kingship to the priestly office. Such corntempt for tradition was not to be tolerated, for it was clearly taught that only the descendants of the royal line of David were entitled to rule as kings. In the second place, the Hasmonean dynasty identified itself with the Sadduccecs. thereby contending with the Pharisees (the Rabbinic party.) The third reason is to be found in the fact that the prevailing political circumstances were adverse to such observance. The Jews, ruled by Rome, thought it unwise to advertise their past rebellions. In particular Rabbi Judah the Patriarch, the compiler of the Mishnah. was of such mind. He was extremely anxious to void those events in the past which might be repugnant to Rome. He even hoped to abolish Tisha Bov and Purim as well as Chanuka. but whereas he was eminently unsuccessful with the first two. he did succeed in making Chanuka lesa popular by refraining from mentioning it in the Mishnah. It was only later when the hatred for the Hasmoreans had been transferred to Horod and when the Roman Empire had paled into obscurity that Jewish writers found it desirable and opportune to record the events of the Hasmonean uprising. In the seventh century there appeared a very interesting account, written by a Babylonian or Syrian Jew and entitled. "The Scroll of the Hasmoneans." This book, the exact date of which is uncertain, was elevated almost to the position of canonical sanctity. Saadyah Gaon was especially pleased with it. for he translated the Scroll into Arabic and prepared a special introduction. And the Scroll gained universal popularity when it was later translated into Hebrew. Persian. Latin. German and Spanish. After a while it became a regular feature of the Chanuka synagogue service. Soon some scribes included it even in their copies of the Bible. In Yemen they read the Arabic and Aramaic copies, verse by verse, as they were accustomed to read all the books of the Bible. The account of the Scroll does not tally with the historical account of the Maccabean uprising. For the reasons already enumerated the story had undergone much editing. Judah is almost entirely ignored. All laurel wreaths are placed on the heads of Mattathias and the High Priest, Johanan. Moreover, the name "Chanuka" does not appear in the Scroll, thus attesting perhaps to its early origin. What followed now are excerpts from a translation prepared by Moses Gastor from an eighteenth century copy in his possession, except for the introductory sentences which replace my deletions from the original text. CONTINUED NEXT WEEK TRANSATLANTIC Have we ever pointed out to you that Jean Chiappe, the French police officer who was killed while flying to Spria to teach the natives a lesson, was the owner of Le Gringoire, France's most anti-Semitic paper? Being no numerologist, we can't cite chapter and verse, but there's a story current that numerologically Hitler is mentioned in the Book of Revelations, and in no complimentary manner either. Europe's most famous astrologists. incidentally, say that it's written in the stars that Hitler will die in 1941 ... It's being whispered around town that the Italian fiasco—or quitzkrieg, as somebody has called it—in the Near East may cause Hitler to bring Fifth Column activities to a head in India. ... But don't let anybody tell you that Hitler thinks he's God Almighty Himself. Even Gabby Goebbels claims only that the Fuehrer is the intermediary between his people and the throne of God The extent of the freedom now enjoyed by the French can be gauged by the fact that even a comic strip which used to refer to "Huns'' now must call its villains "Patagonians." The special authorization required before any one can go from occupied France to the unoccupied territory costs five thousand francs for Aryans, but twice as much for Jews. HOME NEWS You know, of course, that as Hitler conquers any territory your Uncle Sam immediately freezes that country's holdings in the U. S.. to prevent such moneys from coming into Nazi hands. ... But did you know that German-owned property and cash in the U. S. is exempt from such freezing? ... We hope somebody will learn a lesson horn the news that an American firm, which tried to circumvent the law about the export of money to Nazi-occupied territories by sending cash through the mails, finally learned that what the addressee actually received was a package of newsprint paper cut to currency size. Did you relize that this week-end marks the 25th anniversary of Henry Ford's effort to end the first world war "before Christmas?" We don't know what Mr. Ford is doing to commemorate the occasion, but Rosika Schwimmer. who had originally given him the idea, recently, together with Irving Caesar, who also had worked on it. celebrated the anniversary of the Ford Peace Ship sailing "Good" news for our Canadian neighbors: The story is that Unity Midord. the Englishwoman who used to like Hitler, is being sent to Canada for the duration. ... If you've been wondering why newsreels practically never show shots of Naziland, it's because the Nazi censor insists that the whole newsreel containing such shots must be submitted to his well-oiled scissors and our newsreel companies don't like that W e've just heard that a few years ago the Nazi chemical experts, on reading a report on carbon research by an American chemist named Drogen, sent him an offer of an excellent job. Whereupon Mr. Drogen had the great pleasure of writing back that, as a Jew. he did not choose to work for Hitler. MINIATURE PROFILE Isaac Stein: He was the gentlest of Yiddish newspapermen ... He was—because he died last week after a six months siege of suffering S tein looked like a Japanese Elder Statesman, though he was no more than fifty-six when the end came. For more than thirty years he had been a news and feature writer, first in Montreal, and then, for the last twenty-three years with the Jewish Morning Journal in New York H e was one of the best of the Yiddish caption writers. ... He had a sixtn sense for the timely, condensed heading, fitted exactly into tne available space. Stein lived quietly, like a Chinese mandarin. ... He was of a contemplative nature—life to him was merely an opportunity to watch the human parade go by. • •• He never joined it. but just looked on and smiled. He ve /j the theatre T here were moments when he felt that he couia write a play--the play of modern drama. ... But he postponea his starting-he had plenty of time. Then his heart, wnicn had never been overtaxed, collapsed. ... It makes one ieei cleaner and better to have known him. Stein was a rar phenomenon—an unspoiled newspaperman without mane love for gossip. THIS AND THAT Hyman Better, the Manhattan taxi driver who wound upd his affairs in preparation for his year in the army, and then rejected because of poor eyesight, insists that anyone w n0 years has been able to wind his way through Tunes &qu" traffic, as he has, would be able to guide a tank straigm Berchtesgaden. Morton Ginsburg is compiling a Jew Who's Who that will be more complete than anything yet tempted. ...

This year, the Joint Committee on Ceremonies of the Central Conference of American Rabbis and the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, are recommending to reform congregations a new Chanukkah service created by them. "A Chanukkah Pageant of Lights" with an impressive brief service has been especially written in order to bring the Festival to life in a reconsecration of the modern synagogue. In our Temple, the service will be combined with a reception and welcome to new members who have joned our Temple since Sept. The affiliation of these members, adding strength to our Congregation and to Israel's Light, shall be linked symbolically with the reconsecration to the ideals of Chanukkah. The committee for this service consists of Mr. J. Gerald Lewis. Mr. B. W. Slote, Mrs. Max Steuer and Mr. Harry Boyell. Members of the congregation new and old, are invited to attend and bring their friends. IN MEMORIAM "May the Father of Peace send peace to all who mourn and comfort the bereaved among us."

With a full roster of thoroughbreds registered, including the 250 new stalls, and an additional 1400-plus horses stabled at Hialeah, it is assured that the opening eight-race card will list the best fields ever to answer the bugle at the Gables course.

The condition book, listing races to be run during the first eight days of the short 16-day winter meeting, reveals many interesting sidelights. Foremost is the raising of the minimum purse level to $1000, gratifying to horsemen with feed bills to pay and to turf fans with its promise of classier sport.
