Contributions and Pledges
In Federation Drive Total
$113,000; Goal Is Assured
Making history in more ways than one, leaders of Federa-
tion have announced contributions and pledges totalling more
than $113,000 with the goal of $125,515 practically assured as
contributions are continuously being reported to Federation of-
fices and the Initial Gifts Division stating several large contri-
butions to be reported and in the mail. Stanley C. Myers, pres-
ident of Federation, said: "When a volunteer worker will arise
at 5:30 in the morning to can-
vass a prospect who could be
seen at no other time, we can
truly appreciate the place Fed-
eration has in the hearts of our
Jewish community and the re-
spect and support it is receiving.
It is truly gratifying to head an
organization in which an act as I
have just mentioned exemplifies
the attitude of all of our work-
ers. Words are inadequate to
express my satisfaction as our
1941 Federation campaign nears
its goal. Definitely will the
money raised accomplish, and not
express, action that will save
lives, rehabilitate, rebuild and

cording pledges at the breakfast

luncheons Tuesday and Wednes-
day, insisted upon retaining un-

untiring efforts of these individ-
uals who spared nothing. Great-
er Miami can well be proud of
Federation and its 1941 cam-
paign. We 'have set a precedent
and an example that communities
throughout the entire country
History was in the making last
Sunday morning at the Alcazar
Hotel when contributions raised
the thermometer above the $100,-
000 mark. This is the first time
any Florida Jewish community
has passed this sum, in any drive,
for any cause. The breakfast
was addressed by Edmund I.
Kaufmann, president of the Zion-
ist Organization of America. He
called for the rallying of all
forces of American Jewry to pre-
sent a united front in all endeav-
ors and to support the Zionist pro-
A WORD FROM THE CHAIRMAN
From last minute reports it appears that the amount raised
thus far in the 1941 Federation Campaign is within six or seven
thousand dollars of our goal of $125,515.00. This means SUC-
CESS, for past experience proves that the needed amount will
definitely come in during the next few weeks when large out of
town subscribers mail in their contributions, and workers com-
plete their final reports.
The attainment of our goal is an acnievement of which
Greater Miami Jewry can well be proud. It will bring added
recognition to our community and great acclaim from Jewish
I extend to all my fellow, workers my personal appreciation
and thanks for their extraordinary efforts and accomplishments
during this campaign. Serving as General Campaign Chairman
has been an experience that I will never forget so long as I
shall live. Working side by side with men and women who r-
fused to stop until success had been attained, who attended re-
port meetings day in and day out, although heavily burdened
with their own personal affairs, is a privilege afforded to few,
and for which I am deeply grateful.
Everyone who has played a part in this dramatic episode in
the history of the Greater Miami Jewish Community will be
blessed many times over for the sacrifices made during the past

ing the Greater Miami Federa-
tion in this campaign. That our
gram for the upbuilding of the
Jewish homeland in Palestine.
J. Aron Abbott, general chair-
man of the Men's Division, stat-
ed, "the sacrifices made by lead-
ing and prominent business men
in this area, neglecting their busi-
nesses to work in this drive is
truly noteworthy. It is through
these efforts and sacrifices that
this drive has been made such a
success. I am proud to have
been a part of this army of work-
Mrs. Stanley C. Myers, general
chairman of the Women's Divis-
ion, stated, "once again have the
women of Israel come forward in
time of need and assumed their
share of the burden in this hu-
manitarian endeavor as have
Jewish women in the past rallied
to all worthy causes."

HUNDREDS OF JEWS IN
BERLIN SEEKING VISAS
The American Consulate in
Berlin was besieged by hundreds
of German Jews seeking visas to
the United States following re-
ports that American immigration
restrictions had been considerably
eased, it was reliably reported
It was understood that the re-
strictions which had been eased
concerned the type of affidavits
to be accepted from Jews and
the question of their good char-
acter. In the past applicants for
American visas were subjected
to stringent examinations. v

FRIDAY, JANUARY 17. 1941
MAKES NAZIS MAD
Angered by President Roose-
velt's announcement that the Un-
ited States would extend every
conceivable aid to Great Britain,
high Nazi officials proclaimed a
total war against the approxi-
mately 5,000,000 Jews in Ger-
many and Nazi-controlled coun-
tries, according to newspaper dis-
patches received here.
Journalists arriving from Ber-
lin reported that the Nazis kept
their anti-Jewish drive in check
so long as the possibility existed
that Germany could enlist Amer-
ican sympathy in the European
struggle. However, now that
President Roosevelt has removed
any vestige of doubt as to the
future American course of action,
the Nazis will unleash all their
violence against the Jews.
Reports persisted, meanwhile,
that German Jews will shortly
appeal for aid to American Jews.
The Jewish situation in Germany
is rapidly becoming worse and
emigration remains the only pos-
sible means of salvation. Food
rations for Jews are being con-

stantly reduced, while, on the
other hand taxes on Jewish in-
comes are being raised.
The intensification of the
German war effort has made it
necessary to employ Jews in war
industries. Jewish workers must
wear their yellow armbands and
are housed in unsanitary dwel-
lings. The weekly food ration of
a working Jew in Germany con-
sists of two and a half pounds of
bread, a quarter pound of butter,
a half-pound of meat, less than a
pound of sausage and four pounds
Jews cannot buy. even if they
had the n.-cessary funds, any
vegetables, fruit, fish, poultry,
rice and chocolate. They are per-
mitted three eggs a month. Ger-
man Jews living in decent quar-
ters have been evicted and shun-
ted into old, dilapidated buildings.
With conditions what they are.
Jews have but one thought
escape to ether countries. Accord-
ing to the Frankfurter Zeitung
4,755 Jews left Germany during
the first three months of 1940 de-
spite war restrictions placed on
travel. Of this number, it was
reported. 2.364 went to North
America and 1,138 to South
America, chiefly to Bolivia, Bra-
zil, Argentina and Venzuela. Pal-
stine provided refuge during
that period for 254 German Jews.
TO HONOR YEHUDA
A reception in honor of Profes-
sor Abraham S. E. Yehuda, of
London, will be held on Monday.
Jan. 27. in the Community House
of Temple Emanu-El. Dr. Ya-
huda, an internationally known
Orientalist and biblo scholar, has
specialized in the field of research
conccring the origin and authen-
ticity of the Bible.

PANIC WITH JEWS
Panic spread among the Jew-
ish population of Prague as the
Nazi administration formulated
plans to drive the entire or a
large part of the Jewish popula-
tion of the former Czech capi-
tal out of the city in order to
make room for Germans made
homeless by British air attacks,
it was learned here.
Nazi leaders have decided to
transfer the population of cer-
tain heavily-bombed districts in
Germany to Prague. The influx
of Germans to the former capital
has created an acute housing
shortage, with Nazi officials seek-
ing to find the solution in the
eviction of Prague's Jews.
By official decree, Jews leav-
ing their homes must sell or rent
them to Germans. They have been
forbidden to rent them to non-
Jewish Czechs. Meanwhile, Na-
zi district leaders have been in-
structed to increase pressure on
the Jews in order to hasten their
departure from the city.
A secondary reason for the Na-
zi desire to have Germans pre-
dominate in Prague is to insure
solid Nazi sentiment. Anti-Nazi
feeling has been reported rising
in Prague sincce the beginning of

WILL BE OBSERVED
Announcement of the eighth
annual observance of Brother-
hood Week, Feb. 22-28, was made
by Dr. Everett R. Clinchy, presi-
dent of the National Conference
of Christians and Jews, under
whose auspices the observance

with liberty and justice for all".
To make available support for the Jewish National Fund's war-
time task of increasing the national land area for settlement and
cultivation, a "Land for Youth" month is being observed by American
Jewish youth groups throughout January. 1941. The proceeds of the
popular collection which is being carried out through the medium of
a multi-colored coin-folder described as a "Dunameter", have been
dedicated to the realization of a Youth Settlement Project.

By HARRY SCHWARTZ
CAVALCADE OF STARS
The Cavalcade of Stars com-
mittee, of which Leo Robinson
and Herman Waitsman are co-
chairmen, have definitely set
Monday evening, February 3 at
8 p. m. for our annual show. We
are having an early show in or-
der to give everyone an oppor-
tunity to come to the Plaza The-
atre that evening and see the
great spectacle that will take
place. As in previous years,
Nick Kenny, radio columnist and
song writer, and the man who or-
iginally started the Cavalcade,
will be with us to help obtain
the talent. Nick is in town and
is greatly enthused about this
show. Tickets are now on sale
at the Y office and we advise
early reservations because, from
present indications, the theatre
will be a complete sell-out.
Every star of the stage, screen
and radio who will be in the vi
cinity will be at the Plaza The-
atre that evening, so hurry up
and make your reservations.
All of you know what the Y
has done and is doing now. Time
and again we have told you in
these columns of our many pro-
jects. We want to continue and
to expand. The proceeds derived
from the Cavalcade of Stars will
be used toward that end. We ap-
peal to all of you good folks who
read these columns and to your
friends to buy your tickets for
the Cavalcade of Stars now.
AL PALLOT NIGHT
Last week the board of direc-
tors of the Y. M. H. A. decided
to tender a dinner to Al Pallot
in honor of his becoming assist-
ant attorney general of Florida.
The committee, after due delib-
eration, has found that a ban-
quet will of necessity be limited
because of lack of space. In
view of the many friends that Al
has, the committee felt that it
would be an injustice to deprive
many of them of paying Al their
respects. It was .therefore, de-
cided to have an Al Pallot Night
at the Y at a date to be decided
within the next few days, in or-
der to give every person who is
a friend of Al's (and who isn't?)
an opportunity to come and pay
his respects to a man who is
well deserving of it. And so,
every organization with which Al

With this column the Florida
regional office of the Anti-De-
famation League makes its bow
to the Jewish community of
Greater Miami and of Florida.
This office has been established
in response to local demands for
a consistent and effective public-
relations program. The record
of experiences with un-American
forces through which this area
has passed in the last two years
or so is too widely known to
require review here. Much work
was done by the Miami anti-de-
famation committee, under the
chairmanship of Mr. Harry Sim-
onhoff, to counteract these sub-
versive elements and an excel-
lent job was performed within
the limitations of material re-
The new headquarters, in addi-
tion to more adequate equipment,
will enjoy an advantage in being
an integral part of the national
Anti-Defamation League whose
headquarters are in Chicago. Un-
der the able direction of Sigmund
Livingston, its founder, and
Richard E. Gutstadt, its national
director, the League has func-
tioned with never-ceasing vigi-
lance, building up a tradition of
thirty years' experience and skill-
| ful techniques for dealing with
i specific situations in terms of the
\ larger problem.
Notwithstanding these advant-
i ages, the degree of success which
the Florida regional office will
i attain depends in the final analy-
jsis upon the type of co-operation
that it will receive from all ele-
ments in the Jewish community,
irrespective of their affiliation
with the B'nai B'rith. No office
of this type can function properly
unless there is interest and par-
| ticipation by the entire Jewish
group which it is serving. The
problem of combatting undemo-
cratic influences, as well as the
positive endeavors at strengthen-
ing democracy and inter-group
understanding, must become the
concern of every thinking Jewish
The office of the Anti-Defamation League is located at 617
Seybold Building, phone 3-6306. All Florida communities are
invited to avail themselves of the services offered by the organ-
ization and to consult on matters of an anti-defamation nature.

At the time this article was
written, it was not known to your
correspondent whether the Fed-
eration Drive had gone over the
top. I know it is the hope of
every Jew that the drive was
successful. Not only are all the
leaders of Federation, Ben Briths,
but Sholem Lodge itself has co-
operated in every way possible.
A regular meeting of the Lodge
which was scheduled for Janu-
ary 14th, was called off, and an
officers' meeting which was to
have been held January 12th,
was also postponed in deference
to the Federation campaign.
Two outstanding Bon Briths
have been visiting in our fair
community this past weekDr.
Joseph Weil of Gainesville, dean
of the U. of Florida College ol
