TWELVE MORE BODIES1
OF "PATRIA" VICTIMS
TAKEN FROM HARBOR
Haifa (WNS-Palcor Agency)
Memories of the tragic events of
three months ago, when the Pa-
tria exploded and sank in Haifa
Harbor with more than 1,900
Jewish refugees aboard, were re-
vived here with the announce-
ment that 12 more bodies of vic-
tims had been extricated from
the wreckage by salvage crews,
who are still continuing their
gruesome search. The number of
known dead is now 170.
Still unaccounted for are 85 of
the 255 persons listed as missing
immediately after the disaster.
It is now becoming evident that
only an exceedingly small per-
centage, if any at all, of those
still unreported Jewish refugees
managed to survive and to es-
cape both the waters and the po-
lice, as it had at first been be-
lieved.
Y ARRESTED
GOVERNMENT GRANTS
5.000 POUNDS STERLING
FOR TEL AVIV SHELTERS
Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agen-
cy)The Palestine Government
has announced a grant of 5,000
pounds sterling to the Tel Aviv
Municipality for the construction
of public air-raid shelters for
this city, which despite its status
as an open city last fall suffered
the most devastating single air
attack of any Palestinian city.
With the Nazi hordes stationed
on the Greek border after their
quick march through Bulgaria
and the infiltration of Hitler's
advance "civilian" guard report-
ed in Syria by General Charles
de Gaulle, leader of the Free
French Forces, the urgency of
the situation is reflected in the
extensive preparations being
made by this all-Jewish city for
the protection of its inhabitants.
Tel Aviv began its large-scale
program of construction to pro-
vide air-raid shelters in strategic
centers of the city to accommo-
date 15,000 persons last summer.
Many private persons even be-
fore that had been building shel-
ters as part of the Air Raid Pre-
cautions program.
By the middle of July 500 air-
raid shelters had been built in
public places and private dwell-
ings here, and applications were
coming in at the rate of 20 a day
from persons wishing to have
these shelters. City engineers
visited 5,000 buildings and homes
to advise owners on how to build
shelters.
Y. M. H. A. TO HONOR
AL PALLOT NEXT SUNDAY
Next Sunday evening, March 9
at 8:30 o'clock, the Y. M. H. A.
will pay tribute to the Honor-
able E. Albert Pallot, who was
recently appointed assistant at-
torney general of the state of
Florida.
The Hon. J. Tom Watson, at-
torney general of Florida, will be
present, as will the outstanding
notables of city, county and
state. The leaders of the various
ENTER BULGARIA
Geneva (WNS)Hundreds of
Bulgarian Jews, including many
Zionist leaders and others active
in Jewish public life, were ar-
rested and taken into "protective
custody" as hundreds of thou-
sands of Nazi troops poured into
Bulgaria presumably enroute to
Salonika, it was reliably report-
ed here.
The mass arrests were made
by Bulgarian police, armed with
lists of influential Jews, provid-
ed by Gestapo agents, the inevi-
table vanguard of a Nazi army of
occupation. Most of the arrests
occurred in Sofia where Gestapo
agents assumed complete control
of the Bulgarian police depart-
ment.
It was learned that the Gesta-
po agents had been active for
weeks prior to the formal Nazi-
occupation of Bulgaria compiling
lists of outspoken anti-Nazis and
prominent Jews. The sweeping
round-up of Jews and liberals was
timed to coincide with the arriv-
al in the country of the Nazi le-
gions.
Most of the arrested Jews were
charged with being pro-British,
although Gestapo agents spread
reports in Sofia that the Jews
had been arrested for tampering
with the Bulgarian capital's wat-
er supply system. As a precau-
tionary measure, it was reported-
Sofia Jews shunned the streets,
remaining indoors behind shut-
tered windows.
Jews residing in Varna and
Burgas, which may be used by
the Nazis as military bases for
an attack on Turkey, abandoned
their homes and moved into the
interior. Bulgarian Jews watched
with apprehension as German
troops massed on the Greek and
Turkish frontiers. There are an
estimated 40,000 Jews in Bul-
garia.
Strong detachments of Nazi and
Bulgarian troops patrolled the
Turkish and Green borders with
orders to shoot anyone attempt-
ing to cross the borders. A num-
ber of Jews who tried to escape
from Bulgaria were captured and
returned to Sofia.
NAZIS EXTORT HUGE
SUMS FROM BELGIANS
BY POGROM THREATS
Stockholm (WNS)Nazi offi-
cials in Belgium, particularly in
the smaller cities and towns,
have extorted huge sums from
Belgian Jews by threatening to
instigate pogroms, newspaper
correspondents returning from
that country reported. Storm
troop leaders have increased their
incomes by warning Belgian Jews
that they will denounce them to
the Gestapo unless the Jews pay
them specified sums.
The most common practice, it
was said, was to gather the heads
of a Jewish community and warn
them that a bloody pogrom was
imminent in that village. The
storm trooper then demands as
much money as he things can be
raised by the Jews in the com-
munity in return for protection.
GERMANS IN POLAND
INVITED TO COMPLAIN
AGAINST TREATMENT
Lisbon (WNS)Nazi authori-
ties in occupied Poland have is-
sued a blanket invitation to all
Germans who lived in Poland
before the Nazi occupation to in-
stitute charges against Jews
who "mistreated" them, it was
learned here.
Declaring that the time has
come for a reckoning with their
former Jewish and Polish "op-
pressors," the Nazi officials tojd
German inhabitants of Poland
that severe punishment would be
meted out to any Jew or Pole
found guilty of persecuting Ger-
mans in pre-war Poland.
ROME NEWSPAPER ATTACKS
REFUGEES AS BRITISH SPIES
Lisbon (WNS)Analyzing the
set-backs suffered by the Italian
Army in Albania and Libya, the
Rome newspaper La Stampa de-
clared that Jewish refugees, who
crossed Italy last year en route to
Palestine, were actually British
spies.
These Jewish refugees, the Fa-
scist newspaper declared, obtain-
ed vital military information
which aided the Greek troops in
routing the Italians in Albania.
La Stampa charged also that 300
Jewish refugees who were in Lib-
ya when Italy entered the war
were British agents sent there to
sabotage the Italian war machine.
Jewish organizations of Greater
Miami and other civic and frater-
nal groups with which Al is af-
filiated have been invited to at-
tend.
Mr. Pallot has served the Y. M.
H. A. for two terms as president
and is now a member of its
board of directors. He is past
president of Sholem Lodge B'nai
B'rith, a member of the board of
the Miami Jewish Orthodox Con-
gregation and a member in a
score or more other organiza-
tions throughout the Greater Mi-
em i area.
William Shayne is chairman of
the evening.
POLISH WOMAN SENTENCED
FOR LISTENING TO RADIO
Zurich (WNS)A Polish wo-
man in the province of Posen,
Nazi-occupied Poland, was sen-
tenced to death after a Nazi court
found her guilty of inviting a
group of her friends to her home
to listen to a British news broad-
cast, it was reported here. The
prosecutor charged that the wo-
man later spread the British re-
ports among the Polish and Jew-
ish inhabitants of the province.
Five policemen in Czechoslav-
akia were sentenced to 18 months
in prison for the same offense.
12 JEWS KILLED
300 ARRESTED IN
HOLLAND UNREST
Geneva (WNS)Nazi police
killed at least 12 Jews and ar-
rested 300 others as anti-Nazi
demonstrations and strikes swept
Nazi-occupied Holland, leading
to the imposition of a German
military administration for the
province of North Holland, in-
cluding Amsterdam, it was reli-
ably reported here.
Immediately after the estab-
lishment of martial law, Nazi
military authoities imposed a
fine of 15,000,000 guilders (about
$8,000,000) on the city of Amster-
dam as a penalty for the anti-
Nazi disorders.
High-ranking Nazi officials
warned that a "total shutdown"
of the "Jewish question" will
soon be found which will make it
impossible for any Jew to "sow
hate and dissension in the Neth-
erlands, to beat up Netherlander*
and incite to cowardly machina-
tions."
It was reported that street car.
| gas and electric employees called
'a strike in protest against the
Nazi treatment of Jews. Many
Netherland workers, particularly
'stevedores, came to the defense
j of Amsterdam Jews, who were
attacked by Dutch Nazi parly
members.
The announcement by Gen.
Friedrich Christianson, Nazi mil-
itary commander, of the estab-
lishment of martial law resulted
in new outbreaks during which
scores of both Nazis and anti-
Nazis were severely injured.
Nazi police continued to round
up Jews, particularly in Amster-
dam, charging them with being
'the ringleaders of nightly at-
tacks against the police patrol."
An official Nazi Communique
taking cognizance for the first
time of the hunger strikes and
other anti-Nazi demonstrations
which have been occurring with
increasing regularity in the last
two months, proclaimed that the
police have uncovered "a secret
Jewish organization."
While the Nazi administration
shifted the blame for the anti-
Nazi actions to "Jews and British
agents," Gen. Christianson or-
dered all anti-Nazi strikers to re-
turn to work and banned all pa-
rades, demonstrations and as-
semblies in the streets of Amster-
dam. The Nazi commander al-
so warned that discontinuance of
work, henceforth, would be pun-
ishable by imprisonment of 15
years. He hinted that capital
punishment would be invoked if
the anti-Nazi demonstrations con-
tinued.
Meanwhile, Nazi officials
rushed plans to establish a ghetto
for Amsterdam's 50,000 Jews in
the Waterloo Equare district in
that city. Non-Jews residing in
the Waterloo Square area have
already received orders to vacate
their apartments and move to

PURIM PIECES
NOT FOUND IN THE BOOK OF ESTHER
By BERNARD POSTAL
Director of B'nai B'rith Publicity
I'urim is ordinarily observed
(,n the Hth day of the Hebrew
month of Adar )March 12th this
year) but in a leap year the He-
brew calendar has an Adar I and
an Adar II, and Purim occurs
during Adar II.
The Purim story occurred in
the year 485 B. C. E., during the
reign of Xerxes, the Persian
king in the saga of Mordecai,
Esther and Ahaseurus.
Purim is called the Feast of
Lots because in Hebrew pu-rim
means to cast lots, and Haman
selected by lot the 13th day of
Adar on which to carry out his
plot against the Jews.
Although Esther, the heroine
of the Purim epic, is traditionally
supposed to have been selected
queen when she won the first re-
corded beauty contest, some rab-
binical commentators held that
she was 74 years old when she
became Ahaseurus' consort.
Because of this rabbinical rea-
soning, the Hebrew equivalent
of Esther is Hadassah, the nu-
merical value of which is 74.
Some scholars believe there is
a connection between Esther and
the pagan goddess of light and
actually these words apply to the

springEastre, whose name is
supposed to be the origin of the
Easter festival.
The Purim celebrating the de-
feat of Haman is not the only
Purim in Jewish history for the
Jews in many countries have
their own local Purims in com-
memoration of miracles and mar-
vels that befell them. Among
such Purims are "The Purim of
the Baker Woman," "Plum Jam
Purim." "Gunpowder Purim,"
"Curtain Purim," "Purim of the
Good Lady." The name of God
is not mentioned even once in
the Book of Esther, which is read
on Purim.
In the great code of Maimon-
ides it is written that in the days
of the Messiah the only sacred
books which will still be remem-
bered will be the Pentateuch and
the Scroll of Esther.
Many people use the Hebrew
words "Shalach Monos" as mean-
ing "the sending of gifts," but
gift itself, while the term "Mish-
loach Monos." which appears in
the Book of Esther, means "the
sending of portions (gifts)".
Plays dealing with the story of
Esther were very common in the
Europe of the Middle Ages but
they were written by Christians,
not Jews, and were performed by
members of the clergy.
There is an ancient tradition
that a Babylonian scholar of the
third century, B. C. Rabbi Sam-
uel bar Shilath, who was a high-
ly esteemed teacher of children
in his day. was descended from
Haman. the Purim villain.
From 1861 to 1900 there was a
Purim Association in New York,
founded and supported by a
group of men "imbued with the
desire to celebrate the Purim fes-
tival in a refined way that should
fittingly represent the social side
of New York Judaism."
In some parts of the world Or-
thodox Jews eat turkey on Purim
in memory of King Ahaseurus.
Turkey reminds them of Ahas-
eurus because the turkey is
called "tarnegol Hodu" (rooster
of India) in Hebrew, and Ahas-
eurus is reputed to have ruled
from India to Ethiopia.
FOUNDER OF BANK TO
RETIRE AS PRESIDENT
Leo Robinson, organizer of the
American Bank and Trust Com-
pany, has announced his resig-
nation as its president, effective
last Wednesday.
The bank president said he re-
signed in order to devote more
time to his personal business af-
fairs. He explained that the
bank's rapid growth has been
such at to take most of his time.
He has opened offices of the
Flagler Memorial Park at 1014
Olympia Building. Phone 3-5132.
and will devote a great deal of
time to the establishment of a
Jewish cemetery known as Mt.
Sinai, located adjacent to Flag-
ler Memorial Park.
He will remain board chair-
man and vice president of the
Dade Federal Savings and Loan
Association of Miami.
Robinson organized the bank
and became its president in Oc-
tober 1936. It has grown to the
extent where it now has resour-
ces of $5,000,000.
He came to the Miami area in
1933 on the invitation of the late
Philip Liberman, then president
of the Mercantile National Bank
of Miami Beach, to reorganize
the auditing department. He was
cashier of the Miami Beach fin-
ancial institution when he or-
ganized the bank in Miami.
Prior to coming here Robinson
had been a professional account-
ant in New York, following grad-
uation from New York Univer-
sity.

AMERICA'S FASTEST
GROWING SPORT
After more than a score of
Roller Derby sessions now a mat-
ter of record in the Coral Gables
Coliseum, it is also a matter of
record that Miami has been treat-
ed to the biggest thrill show it
has ever seen with the promises
of more to come.
Thrills, spills and plenty of ac-
tion has marked the unusual pro-
gram so far. In one instance, a
set-to between Katherine Small
of the Canadian team and Geor-
gia Gordon of the Miami girl's
squad, called forth the minions
of Coral Gable's law and result-
ed in both birls being "booked"
for disorderly conduct and fight-
ing in public. The Roller Derby
Management was obliged to post
$150 cash bond before the skaters
were released pending a hearing.
Three world records have been
established on the steeply banked
track to date. Two by Bill Mev,
Captain of the Canadians, when
he rolled the boys quarter and
half mile distances in 40 seconds
flat, and one minute and 20 sec-
onds respectively. The third rec-
ord was set by Katherine Small
of the Canadian team when she
travelled the quarter mile dist-
ance in 40.8 seconds.
The attendance in the Coliseum
has been holding at a peak winch
surpasses any attraction ever to
visit the Ice Palace.

merits the support of every red-

PURIM AND PURIMS
Bt ABRAHAM BURSTEIN
In the :' .. winj article, Abraham Burst* in. prominent rabbi and
...._. .,.-. writer presents th< kgi und and sigr.ificance of the
ementary Purir Thi Edit r
The nigh: of February 17, 1757 was unusually dark. The
perhaps slightly inebriated Gentile making his way through
the ghetto of Avignon sew the outline of a large building before
him. He sidestepped, and tumbled neatly into an adjacent
well. His mind cleared long enough for him to clutch at the
jutting sides of the pit and land without undue injury. His cries
summoned several householders, who with considerable diffi-
culty succeeded in hauling him out and sending him on his
way, practically unhurt.
The incident might be looked on as an ordinary rescue of a
gentleman in distress, without social or racial implications. But
to the Jews of Avignon it had supreme importance. For if the
unseeing Gentile had fallen on his head, he would probably
have been killed. And the authorities, searching for the unfor-
tunate one would have discovered one of their own done to
death within the shadow of the Jewish house of worship.
Massacre might have been the least of the sufferings attend-
ant upon such a discovery. There would have been a relig-
ious crusade against the people of Israel extending over all
southern France. Since Jews were responsible for all untoward
events in the community, no matter how remote from their ac-
tual conduct or experience, the presence of a corpus delicti
would have brooked no semblance of defense.
Hence a feast day was instituted on the 28th day of Shevat.
PURIM
By HARRY KOVNER
So Purim is here once more.
And like the years gone before
Jews everywhere
Gather to share
With one another.
Be he stranger or brother.
Their woe and pain.
And they shed again
Tears of shame.
But. patient and tame.
They pray to the Holy Name
To squelch the flame
Of the Tyrant's aim.
And they read the scroll
Which tells of the fall
Of a wicked man
Who concocted a plan
All Jews to eliminate
From the Persian state,
And through lies and hate
His blood-thirst to satiate.
And the Megillah goes on to relate
About a humble Jew who at the gate
Of the king's palace stood straight.
And who refused to bow to an ingrate.
And it tells of a despotic King
Who ruled over life and death with his ring.
And yet the King's Conscience was awake:
Something in his heart tugged like a rake
<"Conscience" some cynics believe
Was and remains a concept of the primitive.)
And stirred his soul very deep
Which robbed him of his sleep
And he searched for records in the book
Of truth, only to find his trusted was a crook.
And, through an Invisible Hand,
The situation suddenly was changed.
The plotters were condemned and disgraced
And the Jews in their former ranks were placed.
Hamen and his gang were destroyed
And Israel once more freedom enjoyed.
May the saga of Purim be a source
Of Hope to all men oppressed by brutal force
And evidence that Tyrants, though strong
And cunning, can not endure very long.
For years without count
PURIM to the Jews was a fount
Of courage and light
In his hour of plight
He hoped that right
Would prevail over might.

May the PURIM of nineteen forty-one
Witness another miracle as in the days of yore
May Conscience once again come to the fore
To tug at the Heart of the Hun.
to celebrate their deliveries.
What is more, the observance
was made an annual event. It
had the force of a second Purirr.
day. and was maintained on a
similar scale of hilarity and joy.
Similar incidents caused a
large number of supplementary
Purimi to be celebrated in spe-
cific cities or districts. Whenever
a Jewish community, always ap-
prehensive of the smoldering
hatred of the clergy and general
p : .lace, was delivered from
vi rt persecution or some pre-
tended act of revenge, a new
day <:' thanksgiving was created
for some part of Israel.
There is a Purim of Narbonne.
celebrated a week after the bib-
lical festival on Adar 21. The in-
cident concerned Rabbi Meir ben
Isaac of that city and a Chr
worker who engaged in a physi-
cal encounter with the rabbi. In
his defense. Rabbi Meir struck
his adversary' and killed him.
Upon this a mob formed to at-
tack the entire Jewish quarter.
Their first act. as in the case of
their contemporary counterparts.
was to carry off the entire library
of the cleric involved in the al-
tercation, and otherwise to en-
gage in wholesale pillage and
assault. But the governor, one
Don Aymeric. learning of thi
and its cause, dispatched his
soldiery' to the scene. They alone
quelled the disturbance, but were
able to save the stolen books be-
fore they were destroyed bj
invaders.
Sometimes the name of a
lal Purim was taken not from
the city in which it was celebrat-
ed but from the object that in-
spired it. Of this nature wa
"Curtain Purim" of Prague, ce-
lebrated on the 22nd of Tebet.
The curtains were d:.
They were stolen from the palace
of the governor in 1623. A gen-
eral notice was sent out by the
palace custodian, including the
reading in all synagogues of an
' order that any Jew who might
come into possession of the ar-
ticles was to turn them over at
once to his sexton. A Jew. Joseph
Thein. did bring the curtains to
' Sexton Altschul of the Meisel
Synagogue. He had purchased
them from two soldiers, who had
broken into the palace in the
governor's absence.
But th-; vice-governor, in con-
, trol of the province, was not
: satisfied with the return of the
curtains. He demanded that the
name of the receiver be disclos-
ed, so that proper punishment
; might be meted out to him. This
could not be done under the
rules of the congregation, which
provided that those who volun-
tarily relinquished goods known
to be stolen were in no circum-
! stances to be exposed to the
authorities.
The irate vice-governor im-
. mediately arrested the sexton
Jand ordered him to be hanged
I on the following day. Thereupon
Altschul obtained permission of
the president of the congregation
to reveal the culprit's name. At
once the sexton was released,
but Thein was sentenced to
death.
No efforts on the part of pro-
minent Jews to obtain remis-
l sion of this judgement had any
effect on its rigor. Not until the
town councillors and other Chris-
tians had interceded, did the
vice-governor relent. But the al-
ternative ordered is reminiscent
of Mordecai's famous ride through
Shushan escorted by the crest-
fallen Haman, except that the
tables here were turned.
The congregation was fined
10,000 florins. It was not permit-
ted to turn the money over in
the ordinary manner. Instead, the

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHTNEAS J. BIRON)
YOU SHOULD KNOW
You don't have to be afraid to order Heinken's beer, most
?amous of the Dutch brews, at your favorite restaurant .
Since the Nazi occupation of Holland this beer is being made
in the Dutch East Indies Lazar Karpess. a Brooklyn C. P. A.,
has figured out that 50.000 tons of scrap metal could be sal-
vaqed for the national defense program if all the old razor
blades, empty toothpaste tubes, etc.. were collected throughout
the country, and suggests the forming of a National Waste Or-
qanizction for this purpose Broadway's name for Mussolini
these days is 111 Ducebecause the African campaign has
made him look so sick Rumors about Fascist sympathies
backstage at the Metropolitan Opera House insist on popping
up again and again Samuel Grafton. political columnist of
the New York Post, wonders why nobody has ever established
a German government-in-exile, with headquarters at London
The Hays office, Hollywood's unofficial censor, doesn't
like movie scenes showing hissing in a theatre, and usually de-
mands that such scenes be cut out of films The new Ginger
Rogers picture, however, shows the lady hissing a newsreel,
and Director Garson Kanin managed to got permission to keep
the incident in the picture ... But only because the newsreel is
one that features the voice of Hitler.
RADIO COMMENT
No, we didn't send a free cable to Hitler, but we thought
you'd like to hear various views on the whys and wherefores of
the Nazi radio offer to pay for messages telling them what to
broadcast for American listeners The F. B. I. is checking all
the cables on the theory that the whole thing may have been a
blind for hourly code messages from Nazi spies in this country.
Winchell thinks that the idea was to help make up a list of
' Americans on whom local fifth columners could keep their eye,
while the senders of favoraole messages will be approached as
potential F. C.'s Another view is that the whole business was
started to get the Nazis a million dollars' worth of publicity at
relatively low cost From still another quarter comes the the
ory that, since American exchange restrictions will soon make
it impossible for the Nazis to cash in on their dollar balances
here (derived from messages sent to Naziland and paid for in
this country), the German masterminds figured out this way of
using up some of those dollars The thing that puzzles us
about the whole matter, Mr. Goebbels, is why the messages
couldn't be sent by Western Union or Postal Telegraph, but only
via R. C. A., the only one of the three companies that is headed
by a Jewi.e., David Sarnoff.
PRIVATE MESSAGES
Aside to Dr. David Philipson, Rabbi Emeritus of Cincinnati's
Rockdale Avenue Temple: In your article on Cincinnati in the
Universal Jewish Encyclopedia you say: "It is interesting to
note that the first instance of a rabbi's occupying a Christian
pulpit occurred in the city of Cincinnati in March, 1867. when
Dr. Lilienthal occupied the pulpit of the Unitarian Church" .
Your successor in the Rockdale Avenue pulpit. Rabbi Victor E.
Reichert, reminds us that the famous Rabbi Gershom Mendez
Seixas of New York occupied the pulpit of St. Paul's in August,
1800 Which, however, still makes Dr. Lilienthal the first
rabbi to have occupied a Christian pulpit in Cincinnati ... An-
other aside, this time to Walter Winchell's Girl Friday: The
Winchell whose "Preadamites" quotation you found as a dic-
tionary illustration of the meaning of "extramaterial" isn't your
boss, but the geologist Alexander, who wTOte many scientific
: books and at one time served as president of Syracuse Univer-
' sity ... He was born in Dutchess County, New York, in 1824,
and at the time of his death, in 1891, was Professor of Geology
at the University of Michigan.

PURIM and
PURIMS
(CONTINUED FROM PAQE 4)
silver coins were divided into
ten portions. Ten Jews of promi-
nence were compelled to carry
the bags through the streets to
the city hall, escorted by armed
soldiers. But the condemned man
was saved.
This event, like countless oth-
ers that gave rise to supplemen-
tary Purims, was inscribed in a
scroll, like the Scroll (Megillah)
of Esther. It was also made the
subject of a novel. For many
years the Jews of Prague read
the scroll on its established day,
and conducted themselves in the
manner of all Purim celebrations.
In such specific ways did the
Jews of the Middle Ages and
even later periods connect the
Purim story with contemporary
incidents. There are legends of
of other Esthers, who by their
closness to some rulers were en-
abled to rescue their coreligion-
ists from death. There was an
Estherka said to be mistress of
Casimir the Great of Poland,
who ruled in the fourteenth cen-
tury. Several novels have been
written about this beautiful Jew-
ess, through whose intercession,
it is said, Jews were treated
humanely throughout his realm,
and given opportunity to improve
their conditions through trade
and industry.
In Poland and in other lands
there were many excellent Jew-
ish women who were able to
obtain mercy for their people
without subjecting themselves to
moral obloquy. Whatever their
names, the Jews thus benefited
preferred to call them "Esthers."
Deliverance at the hands of a fe-
male was always associated with
the original biblical narrative.
One can understand therefore
why our sagas sometimes de-
clared that the book of Esther
would remain even if all parts
of the Bible beyond the Penta-
touch were destroyed. This story,
which is the only one in the
Bible wherein the name of God
is not mentioned, sometimes
seems glorified far beyond its
apparent deserts. But it is the
symbol of Jewish redemption
during long centuries of Damoc-
lean peril. It is the literary rep-
resentation of the hopes that
have arisen in Jewish breasts in
the most dire persecutions.
All this is presented as evi-
dence that Purim is not merely
an interlude in Jewish life, dur-
ing which the scroll of Esther is
read in the synagogues, the child-
ren break with all restraint, and
families gather for hamantasch-
en, kreplach, and the other deli-
cacies of the season. Behind the
banter and hilarity of the day,
there is a profound philosophy of
Jewish survival, however crude-
ly expressed.
Jews who still wait for the
blow of the oppressor to fall in
many lands, turn to the sacred
scroll for solace in their times
of terror. They are comforted by
the thought that no matter what
may happen to them as individ-
uals, Israel will be preserved as
always before. Intercession will
come from man or Heaven, but
it will come; Mordecai will be
exalted and Haman discomfited.
But far more than this, the
deliverance of Jews at all times
has meant a new birth of free-
dom and enlightenment for all
men. For this deliverance do the
enlightened people of earth, Jew
and non-Jew, wait in the most
distressful period of the world's
history.

The Festival of Lots celebrat-

and Thursday of the coming
week will be marked with the
traditional observances as in
days past. Though a heavy
cloud of misery envelopes a
greater part of our people, yet
the very message of Purim
should fill us with courage and
hope that the Kingdom of Arro-
gance will pass and the Reign

confidence if he so desires.
Anti-Semitic Libels
A weekly newspaper in this
area has undertaken to dissem-
inate anti-Semitic libels. This
particular publication is accusing
the Jews of evading the draft.
Referring to what he terms "first
hand information from the draft
board." the editor says: "It seems
lhat the Jewish boys all hate
Hitler but none of them want to
get into the army where there
is a possibility that they might
have to fight Hitler."
This kind of falsehood is a
stench in the nostrils of decent
people. It smacks of the Nazi
propaganda and perhaps should
not be dignified by a refutation,
except that reports clearing thru to believe that Jews are shirk-
our national headquarters indi-; ing their duty. If anything, they
cale stories of this kind are crop-. probably will be enlisted in lar-
March 3 has passed and with it
go pleasant memories of our an-
nual membership affair. More
than 50 couples enjoyed a love-
ly cocktail party at the home of
Miss Charlotte Groner and then
adjourned to the Beachcomber
for dancing.
But for those girls who were
unable to attend, Junior Hadas-
sah has another treat in store for
you on the evening of March 30,
be found in the large number of
Jewish volunteers. The records at whlch Um* our Donor Dinner
show that there were from 30,000
to 40,000 Jewish volunteers, or 18
per cent of the entire Jewish
contingent."
So far as the operation of the
present selective service is con-
cerned, there is of course no way
of determining exactly how many
Jews are volunteers or how many
have been accepted for military
training. At the same time, even
a superficial glance at the list
of enrollees printed in the daily
newspapers tend to refute these
false charges. For example, Mi-
ami newspapers of February 25
printed a list of the enrollees reg-
istered on that particular day
and out of forty-one names, ten
were Jewish boys.
There is absolutely no reason

ping up in widely scattered com-
munities. They seem to stem from
a central source. They have a
definite motivation which is ob-
vious: It is to fan the flames of
prejudice, to help spread the
'divide and rule" aims of the
fifth column.
Jews should familiarize them-
selves with the facts so that they
may be in a position to repeat
them to those willing to listen.
For example, the record of the
Jews in the World War is beyond
reproach. Ray Murphy, past na-
tional commander of the Ameri-
can Legion, in a recent article
entitled "Greater Love Hath No
Man." discusses the World War
and tells how he "came to know
at first hand of the heroism of a
gallant host of men who win
pri -:d to be known as Jews."
For the statistically-minded
there is the article appearing in
the Congressional Record of Nov-
ember 25. 1940, which points out:

against Hitlerism and the issues
involved touch not only our
whole democratic structure, but
affect even more keenly all mi-
nority groups, of which the Jews
are one.
ADL Service Squad
A project probably unique to
the Florida Regional office is the
formation of an ADL service
squad with Mrs. Jennie Rotfort
as chairman. The functions of
this volunteer group will be to
assist the ADL in a number of
ways, including the checking of
newspapers, the compilation of
mailing lists, etc. In addition to
Mrs. Rotfort. the membership of
the squad includes Mrs. Milton
Friedman. Mrs. George Cohen.
Mrs. V. Mell. Mrs. L. Heiman.
Mrs. Harry Oliphant. Mrs. Ida
Optner. and Mrs. Theo. Abel.
Benjamin Franklin Forgery
A member of the B'nai B'rith
inquires whether it is true that
Benjamin Franklin hated the
Jews. His auestion is prompted
by the distribution in his place
of employment, of an alleged
statement of Benjamin Franklin
in which he is quoted as urging
the exclusion of Jews from Amer-
ica. The source for this supposed-
ly is the diary of Charles Pick-
ney of South Carolina.
Benjamin Franklin did not
hate the Jews; on the contrary,
his attitude toward all minorities
was a very liberal one. In one of
his letters he wrote: "I hope .
to see our country established
in Freedom, when it will soon
become great and glorious by
being the asylum of all the op-
pressed in. Europe, and the resort
of the wealthy, who love liberty,
from all parts of this continent,
to establish themselves and fami-
lies among us."
The origin of the statement at-
tributed to Franklin was William
Dudley Pelley, the notorious
leader of the Silver Shirts, a
Fascist organization, who first
published the document in 1934
in his violently anti-democratic
periodical, "Liberation." Shortly
thereafter it was reprinted by
the Nazi press in Germany and
was distributed by Robert Ed-
ward Edmondson, another Ameri-
can propogandist for Nazi Ger-
many. ...
All of the outstanding Franklin
authorities emphatically agree
that the document credited to
this beloved American is a for-
gery. Dr. Carl Van Doren, bio-
grapher of Franklin, says: "The
forger's authority for his docu-
ment is nearly as mythical as
could be imagined. He cites a
manuscript that does not exist,
a printed book or pamphlet which
nobody has seen, a journal which
has been lost for more than a
hundred years. There is no evi-
dence of the slightest value that
Franklin ever made the alleged
speech or ever said or thought
anything of the kind about the
Jews."
Alfred Riglmg. librarian of the
Franklin Institute in Philadel-
phia, states: "The document said
to be an abstract from the Jour-
nal of Charles Pickney of South
will take place at the Latin Quar-
ter. To attend this affair every
girl is required to raise or earn
$6.00 which entitles her and her
escort to attend this affair.
Miss Charlotte Groner is gen-
eral chairman and has many
ideas and suggestions for raising
this money. Contact Miss Gro-
ner and she will be more than
pleased to assist you.
Our Donor Dinners in the past
have always been looked upon as
one of the outstanding affairs of
the year and we assure you this
one will be no exception.
Our next regular meeting will
be held at the Colony Hotel, 736
Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, on
Monday evening, March 10, at
8:30. Rabbi Max Shapiro will be
guest speaker.

FLORIDA'S GOVERNOR
ISSUES PROCLAMATION
BROTHERHOOD MONTH
With reverent dependence up-
on God and faith in our destiny
as a nation, let us, the people of
the State of Florida, set aside
the whole month of March as
"Brotherhood Month." Let us
gather together in church and
school, in cathedral and syna-
gogue, in public hall and home,
and proclaim our common loyal-
ty as Americans and as brothers.
At a time when intolerance
and prejudice are rife throughout
the world, the people of Florida
along with other Americans offer
this example of spiritual unity.
Here free men of all religions
unite to preserve the ideals upon
which our nation has grown
great. "Brotherhood Month"
should be the outward manifesta-
tion of our inner faith; it should

Carolina does not exist. Neither
the original, nor any copy of it,
is in the possession of the Frank-

to locate the Pickney work, but
without success." J. Henry Smith,
Jr., who compiled "The Amazing
Benjamin Franklin," comments:
"I vehemently protest against
the circulation of anti-Jewish
statements wrongly attributed to
Franklin. This libel of the Jew-
ish race is unjust both to Jews
and to the name and fame of
Benjamin Franklin. Numerous
Franklin authorities have ex-
posed this hoax. I, too, have in-

no historical basis."
Another myth exploded!

the Tropical Park Spring meet-
ing. The leading routers of the
southland have been nominated
for the rich event and include
Mrs. M. Evan's Shot Put. Max-
well Howard's The Chief. LeMar
Stock Farm's Many Strings. Mrs.
R. Palladino's Little Beans,
Woodvale Farm's Dorimer and a
host of others.
The Tropical Handicap will
have its fourth running at the
meeting which opened Monday
afternoon for a 34-day stay that
will ring down the curtain on
Miami's 1940-41 racing season.
Past winners numbered Tatterde-
malion, Teddy Weed and Dolly
Val, although the present field
far eclipses, in number and in
class, any previous band of nom-
inees.
Six stakes are slated for de-
cision at Tropical Park, and en-
tries for the sextette of Spring
features all closed at Saturday
midnight with a record roster of
211 thoroughbreds. The first
feature, the Pan American Han-
dicap, a $3000 added prize, will
have its running on Saturday
with 30 horses among the prob-
able starters. Weights will like-
ly find Sweet Willow, Liberty
Flight and Royal Man high
among the top packages.
The Orange Blossom Stakes,
for male two-year-olds, also en-
listed 30 nominees, a substantial
increase over last season, and will
attract the best juveniles in Mi-
ami, led by Bold Question and
Eternal Bull. The mile and sev-
enty yards Royal Palm Handicap
drew the largest number of early
enlistments, 46 being listed with
Racing Secretary Robert S. Shel-
ley. Like all other events, this
is well above last year. Thirty
fillies in the Viscaya Stakes and
31 older sprinters for the Coral
Gables Spring Handicap also in-
dicate thrilling contests in both
of these featured Saturday Han-
dicaps. Officials of the Gables
Racing Association expressed
keen satisfaction at the response
to the Spring stake schedule and
believe it augurs the best sea-
son the Bird Road course has yet
known.

FRIDAY. MARCH 7. 1941 *Jewish fkrirJicnn PAGE THREE PURIM PIECES NOT FOUND IN THE BOOK OF ESTHER By BERNARD POSTAL Director of B'nai B'rith Publicity I'urim is ordinarily observed ( ,n the Hth day of the Hebrew month of Adar )March 12th this year) but in a leap year the Hebrew calendar has an Adar I and an Adar II, and Purim occurs during Adar II. The Purim story occurred in the year 485 B. C. E., during the reign of Xerxes, the Persian king in the saga of Mordecai, Esther and Ahaseurus. Purim is called the Feast of Lots because in Hebrew pu-rim means to cast lots, and Haman selected by lot the 13th day of Adar on which to carry out his plot against the Jews. Although Esther, the heroine of the Purim epic, is traditionally supposed to have been selected queen when she won the first recorded beauty contest, some rabbinical commentators held that she was 74 years old when she became Ahaseurus' consort. Because of this rabbinical reasoning, the Hebrew equivalent of Esther is Hadassah, the numerical value of which is 74. Some scholars believe there is a connection between Esther and the pagan goddess of light and actually these words apply to the GARTENBERG & SCHECHTER OF The London Arm* Hotel Announcing to all that the l-onioo Arms llcrtei and I)iiiin£ Room wilt be -I'll to the pul'lic for tor v,-r Holidays.

PHONE 2-82M spring—Eastre, whose name is supposed to be the origin of the Easter festival. The Purim celebrating the defeat of Haman is not the only Purim in Jewish history for the Jews in many countries have their own local Purims in commemoration of miracles and marvels that befell them. Among such Purims are "The Purim of the Baker Woman," "Plum Jam Purim." "Gunpowder Purim," "Curtain Purim," "Purim of the Good Lady." The name of God is not mentioned even once in the Book of Esther, which is read on Purim. In the great code of Maimonides it is written that in the days of the Messiah the only sacred books which will still be remembered will be the Pentateuch and the Scroll of Esther. Many people use the Hebrew words "Shalach Monos" as meaning "the sending of gifts," but gift itself, while the term "Mishloach Monos." which appears in the Book of Esther, means "the sending of portions (gifts)". Plays dealing with the story of Esther were very common in the Europe of the Middle Ages but they were written by Christians, not Jews, and were performed by members of the clergy. There is an ancient tradition that a Babylonian scholar of the third century, B. C. Rabbi Samuel bar Shilath, who was a highly esteemed teacher of children in his day. was descended from Haman. the Purim villain. From 1861 to 1900 there was a Purim Association in New York, founded and supported by a group of men "imbued with the desire to celebrate the Purim festival in a refined way that should fittingly represent the social side of New York Judaism." In some parts of the world Orthodox Jews eat turkey on Purim in memory of King Ahaseurus. Turkey reminds them of Ahaseurus because the turkey is called "tarnegol Hodu" (rooster of India) in Hebrew, and Ahaseurus is reputed to have ruled from India to Ethiopia. FOUNDER OF BANK TO RETIRE AS PRESIDENT Leo Robinson, organizer of the American Bank and Trust Company, has announced his resignation as its president, effective last Wednesday. The bank president said he resigned in order to devote more time to his personal business affairs. He explained that the bank's rapid growth has been such at to take most of his time. He has opened offices of the Flagler Memorial Park at 1014 Olympia Building. Phone 3-5132. and will devote a great deal of time to the establishment of a Jewish cemetery known as Mt. Sinai, located adjacent to Flagler Memorial Park. He will remain board chairman and vice president of the Dade Federal Savings and Loan Association of Miami. Robinson organized the bank and became its president in October 1936. It has grown to the extent where it now has resources of $5,000,000. He came to the Miami area in 1933 on the invitation of the late Philip Liberman, then president of the Mercantile National Bank of Miami Beach, to reorganize the auditing department. He was cashier of the Miami Beach financial institution when he organized the bank in Miami. Prior to coming here Robinson had been a professional accountant in New York, following graduation from New York University. PALM BEACH NOTES • i | MRS. MARY SCHREBNICK Representative Mrs. R. Kemplar was hostess at the Beth El Sisterhood benefit card party Sunday night. Plans for a Community Sedar are being perfected under the chairmenship of Mrs. M. Schrcbnick and Mrs. J. Kaufman. Mrs. Samuel Speigal. national president of the Women's League of the United Synagogues of America, spoke Monday night at the Ben Ryder home.

SENIOR HADASSAH The regular monthly meeting of Senior Hadassah will be held Monday, March 10, at 2 p. m. at the Blackstone Hotel, 800 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach. The program, in charge of Mrs. I. M. Weinstein, will be dedicated to Purim, and the celebration of Hadassah's 29th birthday. Purim refreshments will be served. Mrs. Samuel Simonhoff, president, will give a report on the Southeastern Region Conference, held in Savannah recently. The Annual Jewish National Fund Garden Party will be held Friday, April 4, at the home of Mrs. Samuel Shapiro, 2675 Flamingo Drive, Miami Beach. CREAM of TOMATO SOUP %  — 221 CREAM! with the accent on L. Trachtenberg, Ellenville, N. Y., was host at Sholosh Sudah last Shabbos. R. R. ADLER SAYS "NIGHT OF STARS" A HUGE SUCCESS R. R. Adler, chairman of the 7th Annual "Night of Stars" presentation of the Jewish Welfare Bureau, has announced the benefit performance this year again exceeded expectations and was extremely successful in enabling the Jewish Welfare Bureau to continue their work using these funds to an extremely good advantage. He paid special tribute to his committee headed by Mrs. Bertha B. Levy, together with Mrs. Stanley Meyers, Mrs. Ann Jacobs, Mrs. Edward Friedman and Col. Abe Hallow. Special thanks he said were also due to Al's Sandwich Shop, Sam Mark's Radio Cabs, Ferd Meyer, J. Wintz, and Carl Erbe, who handled publicity and the staging of the show. SEE THE ROLLER DERBY AMERICA'S FASTEST GROWING SPORT After more than a score of Roller Derby sessions now a matter of record in the Coral Gables Coliseum, it is also a matter of record that Miami has been treated to the biggest thrill show it has ever seen with the promises of more to come. Thrills, spills and plenty of action has marked the unusual program so far. In one instance, a set-to between Katherine Small of the Canadian team and Georgia Gordon of the Miami girl's squad, called forth the minions of Coral Gable's law and resulted in both birls being "booked" for disorderly conduct and fighting in public. The Roller Derby Management was obliged to post $150 cash bond before the skaters were released pending a hearing. Three world records have been established on the steeply banked track to date. Two by Bill Mev, Captain of the Canadians, when he rolled the boys quarter and half mile distances in 40 seconds flat, and one minute and 20 seconds respectively. The third record was set by Katherine Small of the Canadian team when she travelled the quarter mile distance in 40.8 seconds. The attendance in the Coliseum has been holding at a peak winch surpasses any attraction ever to visit the Ice Palace. Give to your local Community Chest. It is a worthy cause and merits the support of every redblooded American.

The name of the Questioner will be hekl In the strictest confidence if he so de sires. Anti-Semitic Libels A weekly newspaper in this area has undertaken to disseminate anti-Semitic libels. This particular publication is accusing the Jews of evading the draft. Referring to what he terms "first hand information from the draft board." the editor says: "It seems lhat the Jewish boys all hate Hitler but none of them want to get into the army where there is a possibility that they might have to fight Hitler." This kind of falsehood is a stench in the nostrils of decent people. It smacks of the Nazi propaganda and perhaps should not be dignified by a refutation, except that reports clearing thru to believe that Jews are shirkour national headquarters indi-; ing their duty. If anything, they cale stories of this kind are crop-. probably will be enlisted in larMarch 3 has passed and with it go pleasant memories of our annual membership affair.

The records at whlch Um our Donor Dinner show that there were from 30,000 to 40,000 Jewish volunteers, or 18 per cent of the entire Jewish contingent." So far as the operation of the present selective service is concerned, there is of course no way of determining exactly how many Jews are volunteers or how many have been accepted for military training. At the same time, even a superficial glance at the list of enrollees printed in the daily newspapers tend to refute these false charges. For example, Miami newspapers of February 25 printed a list of the enrollees registered on that particular day and out of forty-one names, ten were Jewish boys. There is absolutely no reason CALENDAR OF EVENTS The Greater Miami Date Clearance Buresu, conceived for the benefit of all oraanijstions in Greater Miami, depends for its success upon the sontlnued co-operation of every group in the community.

They have a definite motivation which is obvious: It is to fan the flames of prejudice, to help spread the 'divide and rule" aims of the fifth column. Jews should familiarize themselves with the facts so that they may be in a position to repeat them to those willing to listen. For example, the record of the Jews in the World War is beyond reproach. Ray Murphy, past national commander of the American Legion, in a recent article entitled "Greater Love Hath No Man." discusses the World War and tells how he "came to know at first hand of the heroism of a gallant host of men who win pri -:d to be known as Jews." For the statistically-minded there is the article appearing in the Congressional Record of November 25. 1940, which points out: "GOOD-BYE, M'M G0IN"' FLORIDA SUNBEAM AIR CONDITIONED TO THE MIDWEST —Macon, Atlanta, Chattanooga Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Detroit.

The functions of this volunteer group will be to assist the ADL in a number of ways, including the checking of newspapers, the compilation of mailing lists, etc. In addition to Mrs. Rotfort. the membership of the squad includes Mrs. Milton Friedman.

His auestion is prompted by the distribution in his place of employment, of an alleged statement of Benjamin Franklin in which he is quoted as urging the exclusion of Jews from America. The source for this supposedly is the diary of Charles Pickney of South Carolina. Benjamin Franklin did not hate the Jews; on the contrary, his attitude toward all minorities was a very liberal one. In one of his letters he wrote: "I hope to see our country established in Freedom, when it will soon become great and glorious by being the asylum of all the oppressed in. Europe, and the resort of the wealthy, who love liberty, from all parts of this continent, to establish themselves and families among us." The origin of the statement attributed to Franklin was William Dudley Pelley, the notorious leader of the Silver Shirts, a Fascist organization, who first published the document in 1934 in his violently anti-democratic periodical, "Liberation." Shortly thereafter it was reprinted by the Nazi press in Germany and was distributed by Robert Edward Edmondson, another American propogandist for Nazi Germany. „ ... All of the outstanding Franklin authorities emphatically agree that the document credited to this beloved American is a forgery. Dr. Carl Van Doren, biographer of Franklin, says: "The forger's authority for his document is nearly as mythical as could be imagined. He cites a manuscript that does not exist, a printed book or pamphlet which nobody has seen, a journal which has been lost for more than a hundred years. There is no evidence of the slightest value that Franklin ever made the alleged speech or ever said or thought anything of the kind about the Jews." Alfred Riglmg. librarian of the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, states: "The document said to be an abstract from the Journal of Charles Pickney of South will take place at the Latin Quarter.

FLORIDA'S GOVERNOR ISSUES PROCLAMATION BROTHERHOOD MONTH With reverent dependence upon God and faith in our destiny as a nation, let us, the people of the State of Florida, set aside the whole month of March as "Brotherhood Month." Let us gather together in church and school, in cathedral and synagogue, in public hall and home, and proclaim our common loyalty as Americans and as brothers. At a time when intolerance and prejudice are rife throughout the world, the people of Florida along with other Americans offer this example of spiritual unity. Here free men of all religions unite to preserve the ideals upon which our nation has grown great. "Brotherhood Month" should be the outward manifestation of our inner faith; it should revitalize our vision of democracy as a way of life for free men. Let "Brotherhood Month" awaken Floridians to a consciousness of American heritage, and to a realization that through God and faith, our country will endure as a spiritual brotherhood of "one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Historians and historical societies have endeavored to locate the Pickney work, but without success." J. Henry Smith, Jr., who compiled "The Amazing Benjamin Franklin," comments: "I vehemently protest against the circulation of anti-Jewish statements wrongly attributed to Franklin. This libel of the Jewish race is unjust both to Jews and to the name and fame of Benjamin Franklin. Numerous Franklin authorities have exposed this hoax. I, too, have investigated this calumny and find no historical basis." Another myth exploded! HANDICAP HEARS AT TROPICAL PARK The office of the Anti-Defamation League is located at 617 Seybold Building, Miami, phone 3-6306.

The leading routers of the southland have been nominated for the rich event and include Mrs. M. Evan's Shot Put. Maxwell Howard's The Chief. LeMar Stock Farm's Many Strings. Mrs. R. Palladino's Little Beans, Woodvale Farm's Dorimer and a host of others. The Tropical Handicap will have its fourth running at the meeting which opened Monday afternoon for a 34-day stay that will ring down the curtain on Miami's 1940-41 racing season. Past winners numbered Tatterdemalion, Teddy Weed and Dolly Val, although the present field far eclipses, in number and in class, any previous band of nominees. Six stakes are slated for decision at Tropical Park, and entries for the sextette of Spring features all closed at Saturday midnight with a record roster of 211 thoroughbreds. The first feature, the Pan American Handicap, a $3000 added prize, will have its running on Saturday with 30 horses among the probable starters. Weights will likely find Sweet Willow, Liberty Flight and Royal Man high among the top packages. The Orange Blossom Stakes, for male two-year-olds, also enlisted 30 nominees, a substantial increase over last season, and will attract the best juveniles in Miami, led by Bold Question and Eternal Bull. The mile and seventy yards Royal Palm Handicap drew the largest number of early enlistments, 46 being listed with Racing Secretary Robert S. Shelley. Like all other events, this is well above last year. Thirty fillies in the Viscaya Stakes and 31 older sprinters for the Coral Gables Spring Handicap also indicate thrilling contests in both of these featured Saturday Handicaps. Officials of the Gables Racing Association expressed keen satisfaction at the response to the Spring stake schedule and believe it augurs the best season the Bird Road course has yet known.

Miami Beach PHONE 5-8407 Yeur IHMHHW — Our Pleasure PURIM and PURIMS (CONTINUED FROM PAQE 4) silver coins were divided into ten portions. Ten Jews of prominence were compelled to carry the bags through the streets to the city hall, escorted by armed soldiers. But the condemned man was saved. This event, like countless others that gave rise to supplementary Purims, was inscribed in a scroll, like the Scroll (Megillah) of Esther. It was also made the subject of a novel. For many years the Jews of Prague read the scroll on its established day, and conducted themselves in the manner of all Purim celebrations. In such specific ways did the Jews of the Middle Ages and even later periods connect the Purim story with contemporary incidents. There are legends of of other Esthers, who by their closness to some rulers were enabled to rescue their coreligionists from death. There was an Estherka said to be mistress of Casimir the Great of Poland, who ruled in the fourteenth century. Several novels have been written about this beautiful Jewess, through whose intercession, it is said, Jews were treated humanely throughout his realm, and given opportunity to improve their conditions through trade and industry. In Poland and in other lands there were many excellent Jewish women who were able to obtain mercy for their people— without subjecting themselves to moral obloquy. Whatever their names, the Jews thus benefited preferred to call them "Esthers." Deliverance at the hands of a female was always associated with the original biblical narrative. One can understand therefore why our sagas sometimes declared that the book of Esther would remain even if all parts of the Bible beyond the Pentatouch were destroyed. This story, which is the only one in the Bible wherein the name of God is not mentioned, sometimes seems glorified far beyond its apparent deserts. But it is the symbol of Jewish redemption during long centuries of Damoclean peril. It is the literary representation of the hopes that have arisen in Jewish breasts in the most dire persecutions. All this is presented as evidence that Purim is not merely an interlude in Jewish life, during which the scroll of Esther is read in the synagogues, the children break with all restraint, and families gather for hamantaschen, kreplach, and the other delicacies of the season. Behind the banter and hilarity of the day, there is a profound philosophy of Jewish survival, however crudely expressed. Jews who still wait for the blow of the oppressor to fall in many lands, turn to the sacred scroll for solace in their times of terror. They are comforted by the thought that no matter what may happen to them as individuals, Israel will be preserved as always before. Intercession will come from man or Heaven, but it will come; Mordecai will be exalted and Haman discomfited. But far more than this, the deliverance of Jews at all times has meant a new birth of freedom and enlightenment for all men. For this deliverance do the enlightened people of earth, Jew and non-Jew, wait in the most distressful period of the world's history. MIAMI JEWISH ORTHODOX CONGREGATION ABRAHAM A.

FLORIDA, FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 1941 PRICE 10 CENTS [FELLING JEWS NET MILLIONS ERS DIPLOMAT Washington (WNS) — Threatexpulsion of Vienna's 50,000 to the "Jewish reservation" [.ublin, Nazi-occupied Poland, motivated by a Nazi scheme ctort millions of dollars from in the United States and /here, according to informed omatic quarters here, diplomat whose identity canbe divulged disclosed that authorities in Austria are ring all Jews in Vienna the Drtunity to emigrate to other itries before ordering their Drtation. Nazi officials, he L are encouraging the Jews to |e their relatives or friends le United States for funds to ^ure steamship tickets. Je cables direct American lives to deposit $400 at the bes of Hapag Lloyd or at oth|Nazi steamship and travel acies to cover the cost of sportation. Since there are it 50.000 Jews in Vienna, the tme would enrich the Nazi sury by $20,000,000. was estimated that close to DO cables have been received Jar by American relatives and nds of Jews in Vienna pleadfor the necessary funds. A le number of the cables were lived through Hapag Lloyd. as explained that many Jews their appeals through Hapag |rd since the German steamline could guarantee that I cables would be received in [United States. It was reportphat some Viennese Jews who to cable directly to their Jtives were unable to get their sages through. Dhn Schroeder, managing dilor in the United States of bag Lloyd, denied that the ^pany was demanding excesfees for steamship tickets pointed out that the Nazis bringing no pressure on |erican relatives of the Jews /ienna to use the facilities of ^ag Lloyd. ic truth of the matter is, lever, that American Jews fious to rescue their relatives Vienna must apply to the Nazi iship line since no other are available. The AmeriExport Line, the only Amersteamship company now opfing between the United pes and Europe, has sold out ommodations on all its ships il June. Viennese Jews who to escape the Lublin ghetto ^t leave Austria before June. pping experts here said that tuguese and Spanish ships j already booked for months in jance and will not be avoil|ews in Vienna are in a posito obtain visas to the United *s since the immigration ^ta is not filled. American sulates in Austria insist, how(CONTINUED ON PAOE %  ) TWELVE MORE BODIES 1 OF "PATRIA" VICTIMS TAKEN F ROM HARBOR Haifa (WNS-Palcor Agency)— Memories of the tragic events of three months ago, when the Patria exploded and sank in Haifa Harbor with more than 1,900 Jewish refugees aboard, were revived here with the announcement that 12 more bodies of victims had been extricated from the wreckage by salvage crews, who are still continuing their gruesome search. The number of known dead is now 170. Still unaccounted for are 85 of the 255 persons listed as missing immediately after the disaster. It is now becoming evident that only an exceedingly small percentage, if any at all, of those still unreported Jewish refugees managed to survive and to escape both the waters and the police, as it had at first been believed. Y ARRESTED GOVERNMENT GRANTS 5.000 POUNDS STERLING FOR TEL AVIV SHELTERS Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency)—The Palestine Government has announced a grant of 5,000 pounds sterling to the Tel Aviv Municipality for the construction of public air-raid shelters for this city, which despite its status as an open city last fall suffered the most devastating single air attack of any Palestinian city. With the Nazi hordes stationed on the Greek border after their quick march through Bulgaria and the infiltration of Hitler's advance "civilian" guard reported in Syria by General Charles de Gaulle, leader of the Free French Forces, the urgency of the situation is reflected in the extensive preparations being made by this all-Jewish city for the protection of its inhabitants. Tel Aviv began its large-scale program of construction to provide air-raid shelters in strategic centers of the city to accommodate 15,000 persons last summer. Many private persons even before that had been building shelters as part of the Air Raid Precautions program. By the middle of July 500 airraid shelters had been built in public places and private dwellings here, and applications were coming in at the rate of 20 a day from persons wishing to have these shelters. City engineers visited 5,000 buildings and homes to advise owners on how to build shelters. Y. M. H. A. TO HONOR AL PALLOT NEXT SUNDAY Next Sunday evening, March 9 at 8:30 o'clock, the Y. M. H. A. will pay tribute to the Honorable E. Albert Pallot, who was recently appointed assistant attorney general of the state of Florida. The Hon. J. Tom Watson, attorney general of Florida, will be present, as will the outstanding notables of city, county and state. The leaders of the various ENTER BULGARIA Geneva (WNS)—Hundreds of Bulgarian Jews, including many Zionist leaders and others active in Jewish public life, were arrested and taken into "protective custody" as hundreds of thousands of Nazi troops poured into Bulgaria presumably enroute to Salonika, it was reliably reported here. The mass arrests were made by Bulgarian police, armed with lists of influential Jews, provided by Gestapo agents, the inevitable vanguard of a Nazi army of occupation. Most of the arrests occurred in Sofia where Gestapo agents assumed complete control of the Bulgarian police department. It was learned that the Gestapo agents had been active for weeks prior to the formal Nazioccupation of Bulgaria compiling lists of outspoken anti-Nazis and prominent Jews. The sweeping round-up of Jews and liberals was timed to coincide with the arrival in the country of the Nazi legions. Most of the arrested Jews were charged with being pro-British, although Gestapo agents spread reports in Sofia that the Jews had been arrested for tampering with the Bulgarian capital's water supply system. As a precautionary measure, it was reportedSofia Jews shunned the streets, remaining indoors behind shuttered windows. Jews residing in Varna and Burgas, which may be used by the Nazis as military bases for an attack on Turkey, abandoned their homes and moved into the interior. Bulgarian Jews watched with apprehension as German troops massed on the Greek and Turkish frontiers. There are an estimated 40,000 Jews in Bulgaria. Strong detachments of Nazi and Bulgarian troops patrolled the Turkish and Green borders with orders to shoot anyone attempting to cross the borders. A number of Jews who tried to escape from Bulgaria were captured and returned to Sofia. NAZIS EXTORT HUGE SUMS FROM BELGIANS BY POGROM THREATS Stockholm (WNS)—Nazi officials in Belgium, particularly in the smaller cities and towns, have extorted huge sums from Belgian Jews by threatening to instigate pogroms, newspaper correspondents returning from that country reported. Storm troop leaders have increased their incomes by warning Belgian Jews that they will denounce them to the Gestapo unless the Jews pay them specified sums. The most common practice, it was said, was to gather the heads of a Jewish community and warn them that a bloody pogrom was imminent in that village. The storm trooper then demands as much money as he things can be raised by the Jews in the community in return for protection. GERMANS IN POLAND INVITED TO COMPLAIN AGAINST TREATMENT Lisbon (WNS)—Nazi authorities in occupied Poland have issued a blanket invitation to all Germans who lived in Poland before the Nazi occupation to institute charges against Jews who "mistreated" them, it was learned here. Declaring that the time has come for a reckoning with their former Jewish and Polish "oppressors," the Nazi officials tojd German inhabitants of Poland that severe punishment would be meted out to any Jew or Pole found guilty of persecuting Germans in pre-war Poland. ROME NEWSPAPER ATTACKS REFUGEES AS BRITISH SPIES Lisbon (WNS)—Analyzing the set-backs suffered by the Italian Army in Albania and Libya, the Rome newspaper La Stampa declared that Jewish refugees, who crossed Italy last year en route to Palestine, were actually British spies. These Jewish refugees, the Fascist newspaper declared, obtained vital military information which aided the Greek troops in routing the Italians in Albania. La Stampa charged also that 300 Jewish refugees who were in Libya when Italy entered the war were British agents sent there to sabotage the Italian war machine. Jewish organizations of Greater Miami and other civic and fraternal groups with which Al is affiliated have been invited to attend. Mr. Pallot has served the Y. M. H. A. for two terms as president and is now a member of its board of directors. He is past president of Sholem Lodge B'nai B'rith, a member of the board of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation and a member in a score or more other organizations throughout the Greater Miem i area. William Shayne is chairman of the evening. POLISH WOMAN SENTENCED FOR LISTENING TO RADIO Zurich (WNS)—A Polish woman in the province of Posen, Nazi-occupied Poland, was sentenced to death after a Nazi court found her guilty of inviting a group of her friends to her home to listen to a British news broadcast, it was reported here. The prosecutor charged that the woman later spread the British reports among the Polish and Jewish inhabitants of the province. Five policemen in Czechoslavakia were sentenced to 18 months in prison for the same offense. 12 JEWS KILLED 300 ARRESTED IN HOLLAND UNREST Geneva (WNS)—Nazi police killed at least 12 Jews and arrested 300 others as anti-Nazi demonstrations and strikes swept Nazi-occupied Holland, leading to the imposition of a German military administration for the province of North Holland, including Amsterdam, it was reliably reported here. Immediately after the establishment of martial law, Nazi military authoities imposed a fine of 15,000,000 guilders (about $8,000,000) on the city of Amsterdam as a penalty for the antiNazi disorders. High-ranking Nazi officials warned that a "total shutdown" of the "Jewish question" will soon be found which will make it impossible for any Jew to "sow hate and dissension in the Netherlands, to beat up Netherlander* and incite to cowardly machinations." It was reported that street car. | gas and electric employees called 'a strike in protest against the Nazi treatment of Jews. Many Netherland workers, particularly 'stevedores, came to the defense j of Amsterdam Jews, who were attacked by Dutch Nazi parly members. The announcement by Gen. Friedrich Christianson, Nazi military commander, of the establishment of martial law resulted in new outbreaks during which scores of both Nazis and antiNazis were severely injured. Nazi police continued to round up Jews, particularly in Amsterdam, charging them with being 'the ringleaders of nightly attacks against the police patrol." An official Nazi Communique taking cognizance for the first time of the hunger strikes and other anti-Nazi demonstrations which have been occurring with increasing regularity in the last two months, proclaimed that the police have uncovered "a secret Jewish organization." While the Nazi administration shifted the blame for the antiNazi actions to "Jews and British agents," Gen. Christianson ordered all anti-Nazi strikers to return to work and banned all parades, demonstrations and assemblies in the streets of Amsterdam. The Nazi commander also warned that discontinuance of work, henceforth, would be punishable by imprisonment of 15 years. He hinted that capital punishment would be invoked if the anti-Nazi demonstrations continued. Meanwhile, Nazi officials rushed plans to establish a ghetto for Amsterdam's 50,000 Jews in the Waterloo Equare district in that city. Non-Jews residing in the Waterloo Square area have already received orders to vacate their apartments and move to i! ; < i (CONTINUED ON PAGE )

SHOCHET Managing Editor Entered as second class matter July 4, 1930 at the Post Oftce of Miami Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR SIX MONTHS $2.00 $1 00 MIAMI F-ORIDA, FRIDAY, MAP.CH 7, 1941 VOLUME 14 NUMBER 10 PURIM AND PURIMS BT ABRAHAM BURSTEIN In the :' .. winj article, Abraham Burst* in. prominent rabbi and ...._. .,.-. writer presents th< kgi und and sigr.ificance of the ementary Purir —Thi Edit r The nigh: of February 17, 1757 was unusually dark. The perhaps slightly inebriated Gentile making his way through the ghetto of Avignon sew the outline of a large building before him. He sidestepped, and tumbled neatly into an adjacent well. His mind cleared long enough for him to clutch at the jutting sides of the pit and land without undue injury. His cries summoned several householders, who with considerable difficulty succeeded in hauling him out and sending him on his way, practically unhurt. The incident might be looked on as an ordinary rescue of a gentleman in distress, without social or racial implications. But to the Jews of Avignon it had supreme importance. For if the unseeing Gentile had fallen on his head, he would probably have been killed. And the authorities, searching for the unfortunate one would have discovered one of their own done to death within the shadow of the Jewish house of worship. Massacre might have been the least of the sufferings attendant upon such a discovery. There would have been a religious crusade against the people of Israel extending over all southern France. Since Jews were responsible for all untoward events in the community, no matter how remote from their actual conduct or experience, the presence of a corpus delicti would have brooked no semblance of defense. Hence a feast day was instituted on the 28th day of Shevat. PURIM By HARRY KOVNER So Purim is here once more. And like the years gone before Jews everywhere Gather to share With one another. Be he stranger or brother. Their woe and pain. And they shed again Tears of shame. But. patient and tame. They pray to the Holy Name To squelch the flame Of the Tyrant's aim. And they read the scroll Which tells of the fall Of a wicked man Who concocted a plan All Jews to eliminate From the Persian state, And through lies and hate His blood-thirst to satiate. And the Megillah goes on to relate About a humble Jew who at the gate Of the king's palace stood straight. And who refused to bow to an ingrate. And it tells of a despotic King Who ruled over life and death with his ring. And yet the King's Conscience was awake: Something in his heart tugged like a rake < "Conscience" some cynics believe Was and remains a concept of the primitive.) And stirred his soul very deep Which robbed him of his sleep And he searched for records in the book Of truth, only to find his trusted was a crook. And, through an Invisible Hand, The situation suddenly was changed. The plotters were condemned and disgraced And the Jews in their former ranks were placed. Hamen and his gang were destroyed And Israel once more freedom enjoyed. May the saga of Purim be a source Of Hope to all men oppressed by brutal force And evidence that Tyrants, though strong And cunning, can not endure very long. For years without count PURIM to the Jews was a fount Of courage and light In his hour of plight He hoped that right Would prevail over might. • May the PURIM of nineteen forty-one Witness another miracle as in the days of yore— May Conscience once again come to the fore To tug at the Heart of the Hun. to celebrate their deliveries. What is more, the observance was made an annual event. It had the force of a second Purirr. day. and was maintained on a similar scale of hilarity and joy. Similar incidents caused a large number of supplementary Purimi to be celebrated in specific cities or districts. Whenever a Jewish community, always apprehensive of the smoldering hatred of the clergy and general p : .lace, was delivered from vi rt persecution or some pretended act of revenge, a new day <:' thanksgiving was created for some part of Israel. There is a Purim of Narbonne. celebrated a week after the biblical festival on Adar 21. The incident concerned Rabbi Meir ben Isaac of that city and a Chr worker who engaged in a physical encounter with the rabbi. In his defense. Rabbi Meir struck his adversary' and killed him. Upon this a mob formed to attack the entire Jewish quarter. Their first act. as in the case of their contemporary counterparts. was to carry off the entire library of the cleric involved in the altercation, and otherwise to engage in wholesale pillage and assault. But the governor, one Don Aymeric. learning of thi and its cause, dispatched his soldiery' to the scene. They alone quelled the disturbance, but were able to save the stolen books before they were destroyed bj invaders. Sometimes the name of a lal Purim was taken not from the city in which it was celebrated but from the object that inspired it. Of this nature wa "Curtain Purim" of Prague, celebrated on the 22nd of Tebet. The curtains were d:. They were stolen from the palace of the governor in 1623. A general notice was sent out by the palace custodian, including the reading in all synagogues of an order that any Jew who might come into possession of the articles was to turn them over at once to his sexton. A Jew. Joseph Thein. did bring the curtains to Sexton Altschul of the Meisel Synagogue. He had purchased them from two soldiers, who had broken into the palace in the governor's absence. But th-; vice-governor, in con, trol of the province, was not : satisfied with the return of the curtains. He demanded that the name of the receiver be disclosed, so that proper punishment ; might be meted out to him. This could not be done under the rules of the congregation, which provided that those who voluntarily relinquished goods known • to be stolen were in no circum! stances to be exposed to the authorities. The irate vice-governor im. mediately arrested the sexton Jand ordered him to be hanged I on the following day. Thereupon Altschul obtained permission of the president of the congregation to reveal the culprit's name. At once the sexton was released, but Thein was sentenced to death. No efforts on the part of prominent Jews to obtain remisl sion of this judgement had any effect on its rigor. Not until the town councillors and other Christians had interceded, did the vice-governor relent. But the alternative ordered is reminiscent of Mordecai's famous ride through Shushan escorted by the crestfallen Haman, except that the tables here were turned. The congregation was fined 10,000 florins. It was not permitted to turn the money over in the ordinary manner. Instead, the Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHTNEAS J.

But only because the newsreel is one that features the voice of Hitler. RADIO COMMENT No, we didn't send a free cable to Hitler, but we thought you'd like to hear various views on the whys and wherefores of the Nazi radio offer to pay for messages telling them what to broadcast for American listeners The F. B. I. is checking all the cables on the theory that the whole thing may have been a blind for hourly code messages from Nazi spies in this country. Winchell thinks that the idea was to help make up a list of Americans on whom local fifth columners could keep their eye, while the senders of favoraole messages will be approached as potential F. C.'s Another view is that the whole business was started to get the Nazis a million dollars' worth of publicity at relatively low cost From still another quarter comes the the ory that, since American exchange restrictions will soon make it impossible for the Nazis to cash in on their dollar balances here (derived from messages sent to Naziland and paid for in this country), the German masterminds figured out this way of using up some of those dollars The thing that puzzles us about the whole matter, Mr. Goebbels, is why the messages couldn't be sent by Western Union or Postal Telegraph, but only via R. C. A., the only one of the three companies that is headed by a Jew—i.e., David Sarnoff. PRIVATE MESSAGES Aside to Dr. David Philipson, Rabbi Emeritus of Cincinnati's Rockdale Avenue Temple: In your article on Cincinnati in the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia you say: "It is interesting to note that the first instance of a rabbi's occupying a Christian pulpit occurred in the city of Cincinnati in March, 1867. when Dr. Lilienthal occupied the pulpit of the Unitarian Church" Your successor in the Rockdale Avenue pulpit. Rabbi Victor E. Reichert, reminds us that the famous Rabbi Gershom Mendez Seixas of New York occupied the pulpit of St. Paul's in August, 1800 Which, however, still makes Dr. Lilienthal the first rabbi to have occupied a Christian pulpit in Cincinnati ... Another aside, this time to Walter Winchell's Girl Friday: The Winchell whose "Preadamites" quotation you found as a dictionary illustration of the meaning of "extramaterial" isn't your boss, but the geologist Alexander, who wTOte many scientific : books and at one time served as president of Syracuse Univer' sity ... He was born in Dutchess County, New York, in 1824, and at the time of his death, in 1891, was Professor of Geology at the University of Michigan. CONTEST NEWS To Abe A.
