Conservative estimates place
the number of Jews murdered
during the five-day pogrom from
1,700 to 2.000, with several thou-
sands more wounded in an orgy
of murder which has no parallel
in modern times.
Reliable sources reported that
the worst anti-Jewish riots and
pogroms in Germany were not as
fiendish and bestial in character
as the organized massacre which
drowned Rumania in Jewish

The police discovered many
rings and earrings clinging to
the fingers and ears of their Jew-
ish owners. The Iron Guardists,
refusing to wait for the Jewish
women and girls to take off their
gems, hacked off their fingers
While the anti-Semitic govern-
ment announced officially that
the loot, estimated at many mil-
lions of dollars, had been recov-

this writing to return any of
their possessions to the tens of
thousands of Jews made home-

Sickening stories of how gangs
of anti-government Guardists
waylaid Jews in the streets and
transported them in trucks to

of the victims were doused with
gasoline and set afire.
Scores of young Jewish girls
were criminally assaulted and
subjected to sadistic tortures.

OECIOE PATE OF
Atlanta (WNS)Proposals for
the establishment of a National
Advisory Budgeting Service,
which will assist local commun-
ities in allocating funds to na-
tional and overseas relief agen-
cies, were approved by the board
of directors of the Council of
Jewish Federations and Welfare
Funds, and will be submitted to
the 203 member agencies of the
Council for a referendum vote.
The member agencies will b#
asked to vote on the referendum
before April 1. The action was
taken at a private meeting of the
board during the three-day Gen-
eral Assembly of the council at
the Biltmore Hotel.
William J. Shroder, chairman
of the board, told the delegates,
assembled from all parts of the
country, that public assurances
had been given by representatives
of the Joint Distribution Commit-
tee, the United Palestine Appeal
and the National Refugee Service,
the three constituents of the now-
dissolved United Jewish Appeal,
that they would not undertake
independent campaigns in wel-

Appeal in 1941 in response U
"the overwhelming desire of the
welfare funds and their contrib-
utors throughout the country."
In the event that no united ap-
peal should materialize in 1941.
the majority report urged local
communities "to do their utmost
in support" of the relief agencies.
The report declared that joint
fund raising by local communi-
ties "is inherently correct and
should be continued."
The minority report objected to
the establishment of an advisory
budgeting service and pointed
out that "it would be much too
precipitate" to act on the propos-
als at this time.

JEWS OE EUROPE
Lisbon (WNS)In a.n address
bristling with threats against the
United States and Great Britain.
Fuehrer Adolf Hitler implied
that Jews will be eliminated from
Europe following an Axis vic-
tory. The belligerent address,
broadcast over 667 stations in 26
languages, marked the eighth an-
niversary of Hitler's rise to pow-
er in Germany.
After predicting a Nazi victory
over Great Britain in 1941. Hitler
warned that "should the rest of
the world be plunged into a gen-
eral war by Jewry, then Jewry
will have exhausted its role in
Europe.'' This threat was seen
in neutral quarters here as a
veiled warning that the Jews
will be made to suffer if the
United States enters the war on
the side of the Allies.
"They may laugh today just as
they once laughed at my domes-
tic prophecies," the Nazi dictator
shouted. "The coming months
and years will testify that there,
too, I prophesied correctly. Al-
ready, however, we see how our
racial ideology spreads from na-
tion to nation, and I hope that
the peoples who today stand in
enmity to us will one day recog-
nize their greatest domestic en-
emy and still enter a great com-
mon front with us which will be
a front of Aryan humanity
against Jewish destroyers and
'The year 1941," Hitler de-
clared, "will be, of that I am
convinced, the historical year of
the great new order for Europe.
The program cannot mean any
other than the opening of the
world for all, the destruction of
the privileges of individuals, the
destruction of the tyranny of
certain peoples and their finan-
The Nazi chieftain ridiculed
the manner in which domestic
statesmen seek "bases" for their
negotiations. "II Ducc and I are
neither Jews nor opportunists.
When we shake hands it is the
handshake of men of honor," he
said. Hitler warned also that
American ships bringing aid to
Great Britain would be torpe-
doed by Nazi submarines.
ITALY DRAFTS JEWISH
DOCTORS FOR SERVICE
Geneva (WNS)Faced with a

Of considerable interest to
members of the Women's Division
of American Jewish Congress and
to all American women is an
item that recently appeared in
the press. It was the final report
of the "Commission on Peace
Through World Cooperation of
the Centennial Congress" which
was held in New York this last
This congress was called under
the chairmanship of Mrs. Carrie
Chapman Catt. the most out-
standing leader of women in
To evaluate women's progress
in America for the last hundred
years and to formulate a declara-
tion of sentiments for the century
ahead. Mrs. Catt said:
"Together women can strength-
en each others courage, clarify
united thinking and resolutely in-
sist that progress has merely
paused." She further said, "Any
enterprise which can replace
chaos with resolution and dispon-
dency with confidence, will con-
tribute to the recovery."
In the report of the Peace
Commission which sums up in a
six point program.
1. All possible aid to Britain.
2. All possible aid to China
and an immediate ban on aid to
3. Immediate measures must
be taken to participate in a more
satisfactory solution of the pro-
blem of refugees and of political
prisoners. We recommend that
you join in the work of existing
4. Full cooperation through-
out the Western hemisphere in
the immediate development of a
common defense program We
look to specific steps toward the
solution of our economic and mi-
litary problems as well as toward
the strengthening of our cultur-
5. In order that the United
States may rise to its full re-
sponsibility as a leader among
free peoples, we must continually
strive to strengthen and improve
our democratic organizations.
The sixth point of the program
urges the findings of this com-
mission to be implemented in wo-
men's clubs and organizations
throughout the country.
This program outlined is so
very much an integral part of our
Congress program that it will not
be difficult for us to transform
this outline into action.

Surveys as conducted by national organizations and other
groups usually tell us nothing more than what we need or what
we are lacking. Without delving into a group of facts and
figures Greater Miami's needs can readily be seen and the

not only a survey but an outlined and workable plan of action
whereby we can obtain and maintain these obvious needs.
Just a workable plan will not suffice. The culmination of these

they are carried out to completion can be the only logical and
successful purpose for which this committee was created.

VIA SHORT WAVE
We had a very interesting time fiddling with our radio the
other evening We got Berlin and heard a German short-
wave cast, directed at North America, explain that because of
the British policy in Palestine the Jews should oppose aid to
Britain And we wondered whether the Nutzis were expecting
the German Jewish refugees in this country to swallow that
stuff Thn came an English-language speech, delivered in a
perfect American accent The speaker made an eloquent
appeal for the developement of a Nazi-style anti-Semitism in this
country, and discoursed at length on how true democracy is
possible only among a home-generous peopleby which, of
course, he meant a nation that doesn't include Jews "We
must have no animosity toward the Jews," he said, and then
went on to call them all sorts of unpleasant thingsbut in a
most polite way When, finally, he had finished, the an-
nouncer came on the air to tell his listeners that this broadcast

be wrong to think of him as Mr. Nordau Captain Gruenblatt
has a very distinctive claim to fame ... He was one of the fly-
ing aces during the first world war, and was decorated for
bravery Gruenblatt doesn't look exactly like the popular
conception of a herioc warrior, being of rather small stature and
having the face of a student ... But that, of course, doesn't
make him any less of a hero ... He speaks English, Yiddish
and Hebrew fluently in addition to his native French, and for
the last twenty years has been dividing his time between
Frane and Palestine ... The Vichy government has great re-
spect tor him ... It offered to make an exception of his case and
give him an important job in the aviation ministry ... But

FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 7, 1941
By MILTON FRIEDMAN
The first meeting of the offi- be made payable to B'nai B'rith
cial family of Sholem Lodge was
held Sunday morning in the of-
fice of President Abe Aronovitz.
If this meeting can be taken as a
criterion then we can expect
splendid lodge meetings and a
great deal to be accomplished
throughout the year.
At the inception Brother Aron-
ovitz stated that during his re-
gime certain definite practices
would be observed. For in-
stance, all meetings of the Lodge
will start promptly at 8:30 p. m.
whether there are fifteen broth-
ers present or five hundred. In
addition Brother Abe said that
he would attempt to subdue the
lawyers and would recognize lay-
men first when brothers sought
permission to talk at a meeting.
This will kill once and for all
the remarks of the brethren such
as "I'm not a lawyer, but -!"
Committee appointments were
read and a discussion held on
same. The budget committee
headed by Brother First Vice-
President Burnett Roth then gave
an enlightening report. Those
of us who have an idea that Sho-
lem Lodge is wealthy should
change our minds. With the tre-
mendous program of the Lodge
in philanthropic and communal
activities, the Lodge has no fi-
nancial surplus. As a matter of
fact, if every brother does not
pay his dues this year and if at
least two hundred new members
are not taken in, we may face a
deficit. It thus behooves each
and every brother to put his
shoulder to the wheel. Pay your
dues promptly and get your
friends to join. Checks should
and mailed to 722 Seybold Bldg.
Incidentally, our accountants
have changed our system of
bookkeeping to the double entry
Brother Rudy Adler. who is
known for making good on prom-
ises, has promised, as chairman
of the membership comittee. that

Quite a discussion was held
concerning a permanent meeting
place. A committee composed of
Brothers Carl Weinkle. Fred
Shochet. Rudy Adler. Sol Gold-
strom, and Joseph Berman was
appointed to look into this mat-
ter and also the possibility of a
permanent community structure.
Beth David Cong., through its
president, Brother Sidney Palm-
er, offered the facilities of its
Talmud Torah and vestry' rooms
for a meeting place. However,
it was decided that fur the first
meeting of the year, it shou'd
take place at the Y.M.H.A. club-
rooms on S. W, 16th Ave.. and
5th St.. in Miami.
Flash: The first meeting of
1941 of Sholem Lodge will take
place at the Y at the hour of
8:30 sharp on Tuesday evening.
Feb. 11th. The A. Z. A. boys
have very graciously changed
their meeting night to Mondr.y.
thus permitting the Auxiliary of
B'nai B'rith to meet in the Y
also that night. Welcome the

cers. Show them by numerical
strength that you are behind

guest speaker for the evening will

ident of the U. of Miami. This
community is proud of the Uni-
versity and it is a great pleasure

figure is not an empty boast.

SABBATH FEB. 8TH
New York. N. Y..In a call di-
rected to the Orthodox Syna-
gogues and Congregations in the
United States, the Union of Or-
thodox Rabbis designated Feb-
ruary 8th. 1941 as this year's
"Jewish National Fund Sab-
bath." The occasion is to be ob-
served, according to the call of
the Orthodox Rabbinate, as ,,
symbol of faith" in the future of
the Jewish National Fund's war-
time tasks in the field of Pales-
tine Land Redemption.
The Union of Orthodox Rabbis,
acting in cooperation with the
Jewish National Fund's depart-
ment on contact with the relig-

THE Y. M. H. A.
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
I have asked Harry Schwartz
to permit me to write this column
this week in order to express
our gratitude and appreciation to
all of you people who so gener-
ously helped to make our Caval-
cade of Stars this year the most
outstanding one of its kind ever
held in this area. While the show
is history, the memory of the
evening of February 3 will linger
in our minds for a long time to
come. Were we to pay for the
talent that performed on that
evening, it would take at least
fifty thousand dollars to do so.
We extend our most heartfelt
thanks to the stjirs and artists
who gave their time, effort and
energy so that this show would
be the outstanding success that
it was. Those who participated
in the show are as follows:
Milton Bcrle and the Royal
Palm Club; Joe E. Lewis from
Ben Marden's Colonial Inn;
Cross and Dunn and Terry Law-
ler from the Esquire Club; Pete
Clifford and his Four Maniacs
from Pete Clifford's Club; Billy
Vine from Kitty Davis' Airliner;
Leon Fields from the Ski Hi
Club; Irving Fields; Margaret
Johnston from the Hotel Shel-
bourne; Benny Davis heading a
star studded cast consisting of
The Galli Sisters, Ruby Ring,
Marie Austin and the Jitterbug
Dancer, from the Mayfair Club;
Rodney McLennan and Marissa
from the Miami Biltmore Hotel;
Ralph Cook and Earl Barr Han-
son from the El Chico Club; Sam-
my Walsh and Harry Stevens
from the Carrousel, the Whitney
Sisters from the Miami Beach
Kennel Club; Carrol and Gorman
from the Dempsey Vanderbilt
Hotel; Haskell from the La Bo-
heme; Emil Boreo from the Latin
Quarter, Slapsie Maxie. Cuddy
Richards and Frisco from Slapsie
Maxie's; and Bob Nolan and his
splendid Miami Beach Kennel
Mere words cannot adequately
describe the fine performance
rendered by these artists.
Again, may I express the
thanks of the members of the
board of directors and the gen-
eral membership of the Y. M.
and the Y. W. H. A. to all of you
who so generously came to see

our show, thereby making it
possible for us to continue the
many projects that we sponsor.
The Cavalcade committee to
whom all credit is due and who
did a splendid job were as fol-
lows: Herman Waitsman and
Leo Robinson, co-chairmen; Al
Berkowitz, treasurer; Pete Sil-
verman; Milton A. Friedman,
chairman of transportation; Nat
Blumberg; Harry Schwartz; Phil
Berkowitz; Lou Safan; Dr. Beck-
man; Dave Lemelman; Henry
Gabbe; Sherman Freedman and
Fred Shochet. and Leo Eisen-
stein, and Sam Seitlin.
While every member of this
committee did a splendid job. I
want to pay particular tribute
to Herman Waitsman who sacri-
ficed his own job in order that
this Cavalcade may be a success.
Herman worked until the wee
hours of the morning making
contacts and doing laborious
work to see that no detail was
overlooked. Any organization is,
indeed, fortunate to have men of
that type on its membership rolls.
The Y. M. H. A. feels very grate-
ful to Herman Waitsman for a
job well done.
To Nick Kenny, the producer
of our show, we say ''Thank you
for a wonderful job." Nick has
outdone himself this year, not
only in procuring talent, but
obtaining workers for our cause,
men who have sold tickets and
who gave donations. Every place
that Nick visited, he was sure to
mention the Cavalcade of Stars.
The "Y" feels indeed proud to
have Nick Kenny as its friend.
This was shown last Wednesday
night. January 29, when the "Y"
gave Nick a reception at its audi-
torium. The place was jammed
to capacity and when Nick spoke.
the rafters and the ceiling shook
from all the applause that Nick
received. Nick Kenny has left
Florida for his .home in New
York, and he takes with him
the best wishes of every member
of the organization.
Now that the business of the
Cavalcade is over, once more
we can come back to our regular

SAVINGS & LOAN
HAVE GOOD YEAR
Joseph M. Lipton, president of
Dade Federal Savings and Loan
Association of Miami, announces
a most progressive year of serv-
ing the public of Greater Miami
as well as building up the assets
and reserves of the Dade Federal
Savings and Loan Association of
Dade Federal Savings and Loan
Association has increased its as-
sets during the past year from 4
million dollars to $5,695,007.93.
at the same time increasing the
surplus from $128,000.00 to $207,-
575.85. On January 2, 1941 ap-
proximately 5,000 savings account
holders received semi-annual di-
vidends for the period ending
December 31. 1940.
Dade Federal is one of the lar-
gest savings institutions in the
southern states. Its operating
costs have been steadily reduced
and the safety of each account
is secured by insurance through
the Federal Savings and Loan
Insurance Corporation, created
by the United States government,
and with assets of more than
Conservative home mortgages
are believed to be the soundest
of all private investments and it
has been the policy of Dade Fed-
eral to take only home mortgages
that are safe iot the borrowers
as well as our institution.
New home construction appli-
cations under the FHA program
last month showed a sharp in-
crease over a year ago as well
as a substantial expansion from
December levels. Federal Hous-
ing Administrator Abner H. Fer-
guson announced today.
Urban home financing by all
types of mortgage lenders in the
United States in 1940 amounted
to $4,031,368,000 or 15 per cent
above 1939 when the total was
$3,506,563,000, it was estimated
today by economists of the Fed-
eral Home Loan Bank Board.
Savings and loan associations
not only accounted for about one-
third of the home financing in
American urban areas in 1940
but the amount of their recorded
home mortgages showed the lar-
gest increase over 1939 for any
single type of home mortgage
lender, amounting to 21.3 per

at its annual meeting in New

between conventions, adopted
this resolution: "We join the
national executive committee of
' the Workmen's Circle in its con-
: demnation of Stalinism and the

have priven by the Hitler-Stalin
! pact that they are intent upon
destroying all that is dear to

The most fortunate Jews in the
Rumanian capital were 3.000 who
were rounded up and imprisoned
on flimsy pretexts shortly before
the outbreak of the pogrom.
They were released after peace
The government presumably-
thought it necessary to apologize
to the nation for the release of
the 8.000 Jews because coupled
with the announcement of the
release was a semi-official state-
ment that a new "Jewish policy"
would soon be promulgated. The
tension and panic among Ru-

Premier Antonescu's radio ad-
dress in which he emphasized
that the nation would be reor-
