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-
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-
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

It was learned that the Gesta-

weeks prior to the formal Nazi-
occupation of Bulgaria compiling
lists of outspoken anti-Nazis and
prominent Jews. The sweeping

Most of the arrested Jews were

Sofia Jews shunned the streets,

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.

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

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
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
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.

After more than a score of
Roller Derby sessions now a mat-

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-

were released pending a hearing.

track to date. Two by Bill Mev,

he rolled the boys quarter and

flat, and one minute and 20 sec-

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.
By HARRY KOVNER
So Purim is here once more.
And like the years gone before
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.

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
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
But th-; vice-governor, in con-
, trol of the province, was not

curtains. He demanded that the
name of the receiver be disclos-
ed, so that proper punishment

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

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

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.
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.
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.

silver coins were divided into

nence were compelled to carry

soldiers. But the condemned man
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
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-
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

confidence if he so desires.
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-

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.

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-

can Legion, in a recent article
entitled "Greater Love Hath No

and tells how he "came to know
at first hand of the heroism of a

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-
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
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.

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
revitalize our vision of democ-
racy as a way of life for free men.
Let "Brotherhood Month" a-
waken Floridians to a conscious-
ness of American heritage, and
to a realization that through God
and faith, our country will en-
dure as a spiritual brotherhood
of "one nation, indivisible, with
liberty and justice for all."

Carolina does not exist. Neither
the original, nor any copy of it,
is in the possession of the Frank-
lin Institute. Historians and his-
torical 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 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-
vestigated this calumny and find
no historical basis."

The Orange Blossom Stakes,
for male two-year-olds, also en-
