SEARCHING A RE II
FOR TALENT FOR
Great progress is reported in
plans for the annual "Cavalcade
of Stars", outstanding event of
the Young Men*s Hebrew Assoc-
iation to be held at the Plaza
Theatre Monday night, Feb. 3,
with the show starting at 8 o'-
clock. Nick Kenny, radio column-
ist of the New York Daily Mir-
ror, is contacting nightclub per-
formers and stars of the stage,
radio and screen who are in the
area, securing their cooperation
for the benefit performance.
Among those who have already
volunteered their services to
Nick Kenny are the top names
at Slapsie Maxie's, the Hawai-
ian Seranaders, Benny Davis and
his Stardust on Parade", the
Dempsey Vanderbilt review, and
attractions from the Miami Bilt-
more Hotel including Marrisa,
Rodney McLennan, Carroll and
Columbus, and Haskell.
From present indications this
year's show will eclipse all pre-
vious ones in entertainment and
attendance. Because of the long
list of stars who have promised
to appear, the performance will
start promptly at 8 p. m.
Herman Waitsman and Leo
Robinson are co-chairmen of the
event assisting Nick Kenny.
Tickets will be delivered free of
charge and may be had by calling
Mr. Maurice Grossman at the Y.
M. H. A., 3-4012.
OF DELEGATES URGED
AT NATIONAL MEETING
Washington, D. CAll Zion-
ist districts and other affiliated
units throughout the country will
be represented by a full comple-
ment of delegates at the National
Conference for Palestine, spon-
sored by United Palestine Appeal,
to be held in Washington on Jan-
uary 26th and 27th, in response
to a call issued by Mr. Edmund
I. Kaufmann, president of the
Zionist Organization of America.
"I urge every Zionist District,"
said Mr. Kaufmann in his call,
"to join in this mobilization of
American morale and material
support for the upbuilding of
Palestine. I call upon your dis-
trict to designate several repre-
sentatives to attend the confer-
nce at Washington so that,
through our combined counsel
and considered decision, we may
adopt a program that will
strengthen Palestine in its de-
fense and extension of the Jew-
ish National Homeland."
Contributions and pledges in
the 1941 Greater Miami Jewish
Federation Campaign total $115,-
590.41 up to press time. Federa-
tion workers are contacting the
many prospects not yet reached.
The Initial Gifts Division and
other divisions still have final re-
ports to make and present indi-
cations assure that the goal of
$125,515 will be reached. A joint
statement issued by Stanley C.
Meyers, president; M. J. Kopel-
owitz, general campaign chair-
man; Isaac Joffe, executive di-
rector of Federation, stressed that
not only is it important for pled-
ges to be made but that payments
on these pledges be forwarded to
Federation office immediately
so that the participating agencies,
both here and abroad, will be
able to use these funds, which
they need so badly. Plans are
being made to distribute the
money now on hand to these
A reception was tendered by
the officers of Federation to Mr.
M. J. Kopelowitz, general cam-
paign chairman; division heads,
captains and all workers in the
campaign Sunday afternoon at
the Blackstone Hotel. Mr. Stanley
C. Meyers acted as master of
ceremonies and introduced heads
of the divisions and spoke brief-
ly as did Mr. Kopelowitz and
Mr. Joffe. A group of parody
songs, written by Mr. Kopelowitz
for the occasion, were sung by
the entire group. The Federation
campaign office staff composed
and sang a special song for the
occasion. Music and entertain-
ment was furnished by the Black-
stone Hotel orchestra and re
A meeting of the executive and
Budget Committees will be held
Friday to hear detailed reports
of the campaign. They will for-
mulate plans for future Federa-
tion activities. Delegates for the

chairman of the board, Council
of Jewish Federations and Weir

LOCAL LEADERS TO
MEET AT ATLANTA
More than 500 delegates rep-
resenting Jewish federations, wel-
fare funds and community coun-
cils in 165 cities will consider
their policies for the coming
year at the General Assembly
of the Council of Jewish Feder-
ations and Welfare Funds in At-
lanta on February 1, 2, and 3.
Most pressing of the issues they
will discuss will be the need for
establishing an equitable basis
for the allocation of funds among
the various national and overseas
agencies, following the dissolu-
tion of the United Jewish Ap-
In a message to the Council's
member agencies, appearing in
the pre-Assembly issue of the
Council's publication, Notes and
News, William J. Shroder of Cin-
cinnati, chairman of the board
of the Council, asserted that the
General Assembly faces the dual
task of preventing any harmful
developments which may result
from the abandonment of the
UJA and of "constructive plan-
ning" for the adjustment of com-
munity programs to meet current
local, national and overseas Jew-
"It is doubtful if the Assembly
has ever had as many or as im-
portant problems to face as it
has this year," he said. The so-
lution of these problems, he de-
clared, would require "statesman-
like thinking and handling."
The Assembly will have before
it a proposal advanced by Sidney
Hollander of Baltimore, president
of the Council, suggesting that
the Council set up its own fact-
finding body to guide local com-
munities in their budgeting for
non-local agencies in 1941, in an
effort to avoid the "chaos and
confusion" that may result from
the separate campaigns being
conducted by the former partici-
pants in the U. J. A.
The delegates will consider the
participation of Jewish agencies
in the defense program at a bus-
iness sessions next day. At the
same time, they will concern
themselves with the prospects for
greater cooperation among the
national agencies in the tuber-
culosis field and in civic-protect-
FORMED BY JEWS TO
WARD OFF STARVING
Vichy (WNS)Faced with the
prosf&ct of starvation, the Jews
of Paris have created a special
"Hunger Committee." with eight
branches in various parts of the
city, according to advices reach-
ing here from the occupied zone.
Since the food rations given to
Jews are insufficient, it was de-
cided to pool the resources and
establish communal kitchens
which will be operated by the
"Hunger Committee." Jewish
housewives, after receiving their
weekly rations, will bring the
food to the "Hunger Committee'
kitchen nearest their homes.
At the present writing these
special kitchens feed 32,000 Jews
in Paris daily. The committee
also collects and distributes coal
and household utensils, which
are extremely difficult for Jews
Another report from occupied
France stated that two well-
known Jewish attorneys, Nord-
mann and Veilcuriel, were
among those arrested recently on
the ground that they distributed
Meanwhile, the Journal Offi-
ciel published daily in Vichy dis-
closed that the communications
ministry discharged 122 Jewish
employees under the provisions
of the anti-Jewish statute.

In keeping with the action of
Jewish communities throughout
the country, the congregation of
Miami Beach will hold a Mem-
orial service in honor of the late,
Rabbi, Dr. Bernard Revel, this
Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. at the
Beth Jacob synagogue. Washing-
ton Ave. and 3rd St.
Dr. Revel was to have celebra-
ted this year his twenty-fifth
consecutive year as head of the
Yeshivath Rabbi Isaac Elchanan
and Dean of the Yeshiva College.
The "Yeshiva" is the largest tra-
ditional institution of learning in
the United States. From it have
come forth Rabbis, teachers, and
spiritual leaders to the forty-
eight states of the union. To them
can be attributed the upswing of
Orthodox, Torah-true Judaism in
our country. The Yeshiva College
is the only completely Jewish
college in the country giving the
various degrees and titles of an

tensively on immigration, peace,
and labor problems.
Trained as a settlement work-
er, she has led junior groups, or-
ganized mother's clubs, supervis-
ed recreational and dramatic
activities for young and old. Her
sympathy for the foreign born
grew out of her contact and ex-
perience in neighborhood move-
ments. The desire to put some of
her ideas into practice led her
into social legislative activities.
It was a logical step from that
point for Miss Kaufman to join
the staff of he National Council
of Jewish Women to aid the
foreign born arriving from a-
In her capacity as a field work-
er for the Council, she has ad-
dressed many audiences through-

Lisbon jokesters are getting orders from Berlin to go slow on
the anti-Axixs gags, we hear Among the stories banned is
that of the automobile racer who. after copping all the prizes,
explcined his success by saying: "It's my tires that do the trick
. I make it a point to have Italian tires on the front wheels
and Greek tires in the rear" It's a good thing there's an At-

EAST SIDE NEWS
It happened on Second Avenue, at Rumshinsky's Yiddish
Theatre, the other day Shortly before the performance was
to open, a man in the lobby directed two patronsMeyer W.
Weisgal and Louis Nazer, to be exactto the check-room, and
then remained standing alone Another patron, suddenly
recognizing him, rushed up to him, heartily slapped his back
and exclaimed: "Well Daveyou're still with Rumshinsky,
I see! Why, I remember you from years ago, when you
used to sing in the boys' choir Are you an usher now?" .
"No," replied the other, "but I'm still hoping to work my way
up." After some more small talk the back-slapper entered
the theatre, and the other waited for his friends to rejoin him.
... He was David Sarnoff, head of RCA, who had been dining at
the Cafe Royal with Nizer and Weisgal, and now was going to
see the Yiddish show for old times' sake.
The question of whether or not Charlie Chaplin is Jewish,
long a controversial one, has finally been settled once and for
all When the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia sent its bio-
graphical sketch of Charlie to United Artists for checking pur-
poses, the proofs of the article were returned without any objec-
tions And in that article Chaplin's Jewishness is taken for
granted Among the significant incidents mentioned in the
Encyclopedia piece is one which took place in 1931, just before
Chaplin was to visit Budapest ... A Hungarian Jewish paper
having run an article ailing Chaplin the scion of an Eastern
European Jewish family named Thonstein, a local anti-Semitic
paper attacked Charlie on the grounds of his Jewishness .
Whereupon Chaplin called off his Budapest visit The Chap-
lin article is appearing in Volume III of the Encyclopedia, which
will soon be ready for distribution to subscribers ... On Broad-
way, by the way, they're now saying that if you want to know
where Nazti propaganda is making headway in South America
just watch the news items reporting in which cities Chaplin s

On Tuesday evening at the

outstanding and enjoyable instal-
lation banquets in its history.
Credit must be given to Brother
Albert E. Berkeley and his co-
chairman, Mrs. Benjamin Lan-
dau, and their committee, for ar-
ranging a program that included
good food, distinguished guests,
and short speeches.
Hore d'oeuvres were served in
the lobby prior to dinner. Din-
ner included lamb chops and
chicken, etc. Dancing followed
Rabbi Colman A. Z.vitman
made an excellent "toastmast-
oid" as he put it. The puns came
from his lips fast and furious.
An. example being "What foods
these morsels be." Shakespeare
then turned over. Brother Ben
Levine, who has been ill for
quite some time, was present and
introduced. The brothers were
delighted to see him up and
around again. Rev. Dick Evans
was also presented.
Jack Abbott reported on the
progress made during his rcgim"
Dy Sholem Lodge. The highlights:
A membership increase from 686
to 1011 under the chairmanship
of Leo Eisenstein; A. Z. A. Youth
and Democracy Rally and pro-

Lou Heiman: A. D. L. work under
Harry Sin.onhoff; Americanism

gee work (Elry Stone, I believe,
headed the Americanism com-
mittee); visitation of National
President Henry Monsky and

PAY GOOD WAGES?
Here are some facts about
During the vear ended Novem-
ber 30th, 1940, the Ford Pay-
roll throughout the United
States averaged 11 3,628 hour-
ly wage earners, not including
office employes, students, or
executives. They were paid
$185,105,639.12. On this
basis, the average annual wage
According to the latest avail-
able government figures, the
annual average wage of all
workers in employment cov-
ered In old age insurance law
If the 45,000,000 workers of
this country received the same
average wage as Ford employ-
es, they would have had addi-
tional wages of more than
$3 5,000,000,000, thus in-
creasing the national income
about 50%. Think what such
an increase would mean to the
workers of this country and
to the American farmer, whose
prices are based on the na-

per hour. Higher wages are
in consideration of ability
and years of service.
Minimum wage scales for un-
skilled labor at the Rouge
plant are the highest in the in-
dustry. Top wages for skilled
labor compare favorably with,
or are higher than, wages in
other automobile plants.
Now some facts on Ford labor
Not only are sanitation and
other health conditions the
best in the industry, but Ford
also leads in safety devices for
the protection of employes.
Proof of this is found in the
following comparison of com-
pensation insurance costs:
The national average rate in
plants as computed by the Na-
tional Association of Under-
writers is in excess of $1.50
premium on each $100 pay-
roll. The Ford cost of work-
men's compensation is less
This indicates that the chance
of injury in a Ford plant is
much less than in the average
The Ford Motor Company has
no age limit for labor, and in
fact deliberatelv attempts to
keep older workers working.
The average age of Ford work-
ers at the Rouge and nearby
plants is 38.7.
A recent check-up shows that
nearly one-half the workers at
these Ford plants were 40 or
over, falling into these age
25,819 between 40 and 50
14,7 3 1 between 50 and 60
3,377 between 60 and 70
41 7 between 70 and 80
12 between 80 and 90
In addition to the so-called
regular employes, the Ford
Motor Company has hired, a nd
now has on the payroll, at the
same regular hourly wage,
thousands of workers who are
blind, crippled or otherwise
incapacitated for normal pro-
ductive work. They are not
selected for their ability to
build cars or to maintain the
plant. They are on the payroll
because of Henry Ford's be-
lief that the responsibility of a
large company to labor goes
beyond the point at which the
unfortunate worker can no
longer produce profitably.
The above are facts. They are
open to anyone who really
wants to deal in facts. Anyone
who wants to get a job buy
a car ... or place a national
defense contract on the basis
of fair labor treatment must

Al Pallot, Grand Lodge state
committeeman, and Jack Abbott,
state secretary. Unquestionably
the year just ended was most
successful for the Lodge and
Jack and the other officers and
committee chairmen are to be
commended highly. Incidentally,
Elry Stone presented Jack with
a radio, a gift from the Lodge.
Other speakers included Mrs.
Isaac Levin, as outgoing presi-
dent of the Auxiliary (she was
presented with a past president's
pin and gavel by Mrs. Benj. Lan-
dau); Mrs. Jennie Rotfort as
incoming president of the Aux-
iliary; Abe Aronovitz, as incom-
ing president of Sholem Lodge:
Wm. I. Boxerman, Florida Reg-
ional Director of A. D. L.; and
Mrs. Sol Goldstrom. as district
Auxiliary 1st vice president, who
introduced Mrs. Goldstein, re-
cording .secretary of District
Grand Lodge of the Auxiliary.
Brother Ike Levin did the install-
ing jointly of the officers of the
Lodge and Auxiliary. It was
interesting to note that both Jen-
nie Rotfort and Abe Aronovitz
concluded their addresses with
poems. Two great minds running
in the same channel. This speaks
well for future cooperation be-
tween the Lodge and the Aux-
Incidentally. Brother Harry
Zukernick. who was to have been
installed as trustee, is still at
home recuperating from severe
injuries received in an auto ac-
cident last month. He will be
pleased to greet his many friends
in the Lodge at his home at
1330 Pennsylvania Avenue. Bro-
ther Jimmj Leonard could not be
installed us warden because of
illness. We hope both will be
completely well soon.

WILLIAM I. BOXERMAN, Director
FLORIDA REGIONAL OFFICE
The new regional office of the
Anti Defamation League will
need to be concerned with a num-
ber of serious public relations
problems. The Florida area and
its visitors today have the eyes
of the nation focused upon them.
Not only is the external question
of Jewish-Gentile relations of
considerable importance, but the
task of lessening the numerous
areas of friction is stupendous.
The situation is complicated by
the presence of masses of people
who have no permanent stake in
the community, very many of
whom come to Miami for recrea-
tion in the amosphere of irre-
sponsibility which generally at-
taches to any resort center.
If a solution to the difficulties
arising from these circumstances
can be developed at all, it will
result only from a long-term ed-
ucational plan extending over a
period of years. This will re-
quire a high degree of patience
on the part of the interested peo-
ple, many of whom naturally are
prone to look for demonstrable
results in a short period of time.
These are impossible of achieve-
It is the hope of those responsi-
ble for planning the office of the
Anti-Defamation League that it
will serve as a central headquar-
ters for public relations problems
and that all individuals, irre-
spective of B'nai B'rith member-
ship, will feel free to consult on
troublesome situations. One of
the earliest activities contemplat-
ed involves the creation of a
speakers' bureau whose services
will be available ior both Jew-
ish and non-Jewish groups. Dur-
ing the coming weeks a formal
plan for enlisting the active co-
operation of all groups in the
community, will be outlined at
a conference called for that pur-
In the meantime, through the
medium of this column, there
will be brought to the attention
of the general public not neces-
sarily the specific activities of
the Florida regional office, but
the general phases of the whole
issue of preserving democracy
in this country. It is a sad fact
that even in the Jewish group
are to be found many not yet
fully awakened to the threats
represented by subversive ele-
ments inside the country. Through
the presentation of case material
not otherwise available in the
general press, we shall endeavor
at times to awaken these people
to a retaliation of the true dan-
ger. We also shall call attention
to timely articles and radio fea-
tures which we have found to be
of special interest to the 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.

We wish to express our thanks
to the Rabbinical Association of
Greater Miami for its kindness
in relinquishing their radio time
on the Jewish Hour on Sunday

to give the Y an opportunity to
publicize its Cavalcade of Stars.
We appreciate the fine coopera-
tion that the rabbis have given
us. It makes for a better under-
standing in the community. Also
our thanks to the A. & B. Pipe

Berkowitz for their kindness in
donating time on their radio pro-
gram. Don't wait until the last
