New York (WNS)John F.
Arena, editor of the Chicago
Italian-language newspaper. La
Tribuna, who was shot down by
two gunmen in Chicago on April
16, was not killed because of his
alleged anti-Fascist activities, ac-
cording to The Hour, usually
well-informed anti-Fascist week-
ly-
The Hour, which described
Arena as pro-Fascist and anti-
Semitic, reported: "Arena orig-
inally worked hand-in-glove with
the Italian consulate in Chicago
and the pro-Mussolini bands op-
erating in that city. He was then
editor of L'ltalia, the policies of
which have been consistently fas-
cist. He was a member of the fas-
cist Italian American National
Union. In 1939, as a result of a
bitter personal quarrel, he quit
L'ltalia and founded La Tribuna.
He used this publication to at-
tack his old associates; he at-
tracted to his side various dis-
gruntled fascist elements.
"As the struggle between the
factions became increasingly se-
vere, Arena printed venomous
tirades against the Italian consul-
ate in Chicago, which was lending
its support to the L'ltalia group.
Ho sued his old friends on L'ltal-
ia and they sued him. Finally
Arena turned informer against
his former pals. He did this not
because he disagreed with them
politically. He was as pro-fas-
cist and anti-Semitic as the best
of them; scarcely a day passed
without his praising Mussolini or
Hitler. But, carried away by an
animosity not uncommon among
warring gangsters, he was out to
get them in any way that he
could He offered evidence to
the Dies Committee."
At the San Jaun Hotel. Orlan-
do. Fla., starting at 1 p. m. April
27, a meeting of the B'nai B'rith

KILLED BY
Athens (WNS)Dr. Isaac Al-
calay. 60-year-old Chief Rabbi
of Yugoslavia and the first Jew-
ish member of the Yugoslav
Parliament, was among the 700
Jews killed when Nazi bombing
squadrons rained death and des-
truction on defenseless Belgrade,
it was reported here.
The Chief Rabbi was killed,
the report said, when a Nazi
bomb crashed through the syna-
gogue in which he and several
hundred other Jewish men, wo-
men and children had taken shel-
ter during an air raid. The bomb
completely demolished the build-
ing.
Dr. Alcalay was trying to calm
his frightened congregation when
j he met his death, the report add-
I ed. The raid, which journalists
and diplomats arriving here from
Yugoslavia described as one of
the fiercest since the beginning
of the war, destroyed every syna-
gogue and Jewish community
center in Belgrade.

BARRING DISCRIMINATION
Albany (WNS)Governor Her-
bert H. Lehman has signed the
Mahoney bill which forbids dis-
crimination because of race, col-
or or creed in employment in de-
fense industries. The governor
had requested passage of such a
law in his annual message to the
state legislature.
The bill reads: "It shall be un-
lawful for any person, firm or
corporation engaged to any ex-
tent whatsoever in the produc-
tion, manufacture or distribution
of military or naval material,
equipment or supplies for the
State of New York or for the
Federal government to refuse to
employ any person in any ca-
pacity on account of race, creed
or color of such person."
Vichy (WNS)Mendes France,
former Deputy from Seine-In-
ferieure and a member of one of
the foremost Jewish families in
Bayonne, will be tried early next
month by a military court at
Clermont-Ferrand, charged with
desertion from the army, it was
learned here.
Meanwhile, Philippe de Roths-
child, son of Baron Henri de
Rothschild, who had been arrest-
ed on a similar charge in Algeria
iand brought to France for trial,
iwas exonerated by the military
court and released from custody.
At the same time, it was learn-
ed that Mme. Andre Blumel,
wife of the Chief of Cabinet
during Leon Blum's Popular
Front government, and her son
were arrested and jailed when
they were turned over to the
French authorities by the Spanish
government. Mme. Blumel and
her son, who were accused of
crossing illegally into Spain from
France last June, are awaiting
trial in a prison at Perprynan,
southern France.
A list of 131 additional Jewish
firms and merchants whose enter-
prises in the occupied zone have

was reported here.
FOOD SHORTAGE REPORTED
IN EGYPT AND PALESTINE
Cairo (WNS)The influx of
Nazi "tourists" to the Near East
was followed by Nazi and Italian
radio broadcasts reporting acute
food shortages in Egypt, Pales-
tine and other Near Eastern
countries, leading neutral quar-
ters here to believe that an at-
tempted invasion of Palestine
was among the Axis high com-
mand's future plans.
While British troops hammered
the Nazi legions to a standstill
in Egypt, the Axis propaganda
machine devoted its attention to
the Near East, painting vivid
stories of unrest and famine.
Propaganda campaiens. nci.tral
sources here said, wore the har-
binus c-f future Nazi Invasion
attempts.
One Rome rad:o report stated
that British troths were being
transported f-om Palestine to
Egypt, leaving the Holy Land
defenseless. nilar stories were
spread by Iht Berlin radio.

FRIDAY. APRIL 25, 1941
BURQINE'S BUYS
HUTCH'S STORE
PALM BEACH
Pioneer Concern
Now Comes Under
Miami Management
Burdine's Department store has
purchased Hatch's in West Palm
Beach, one of the oldest depart-
ment stores in that community,
and, effective Saturday, has tak-
en over the complete operation
of the store.
Roy Mann, formerly superin-
tendent of Burdine's in Miami
and. at the time of the purchase
associated with Hatch's, has been
named manager of the Burdine's
West Palm Beach store.
History of the Hatch store
dates back to 1909 when the
Palm Beach Dry Goods Co. was
established and operated by H. G.
Greer. In 1912 Georgq N. Hatch
of Rockledge and N. P. Yowell
of Orlando purchased this little .
dry goods store and later changed 1"^^
the name to Hatch's.
Following the reorganization,
the store grew rapidly at its
first location in the Sheen build-
ing on Clematis street, even
though it had only two clerks.
In 1936 the store was moved to
a new $300,000 building at Cle-
matis street and Olive avenue,
a modern, streamlined, air-candi-
tioned building that now has 89
year-round employes. Additional
improvements of approximately
$22,000 Were spent, largely on
street floor improvements, in the
summer of 1940.
There are 23 departments in
the store, including women's and
children's apparel, accessories,
silk and cotton piece goods, men's
furnishings and shoes.
In acquiring the Hatch store in
West Palm Beach, Burdine's
brings to the entire southeast
section of Florida a reputation
for fashion prestige that is na-
tional in scope, officials ex-
plained.
The same policies and services
will be pursued at the new West
Palm Beach store that now are
in force at the Miami store. Bur- j
dine's Sunshine Fashions will be !
featured. Prices will be identical
on similar merchandise at both
stores. Charge customers soon
Will be given a Charga-Plate that;
will be honored at all Burdine
stores.
It was announced that starting
j Monday .the new store hours will
| be from 9:30 a. m. to 5:30 p. m.,
> instead of 9 to 5:30. Other poli-
jcies benefiting employes will be
'identical to those now enjoyed
by Miami store employes.
Started in 1898. when Miami
had a population of only 600,
Burdine's grew under the found-
er W. M. Burdine. Sr.. until in
1912 the business was moved in-
| to the present location on Flag-
, ler street.
As the town grew. Burdine's
kept step. In 1929. Roddy Bur-
dine. a son of the founder who
headed the firm upon the death
of his father in 1911, foresaw
Burdine's leadership in the fash-
ion world and developed the
name and idea of "Sunshine
Fashions." a laboratory or prov-
ing ground where new merchan-
dise for the coming summer is
; tested and approved each resort
, season.
So great was the demand for
! "Sunshine Fashions'' by resort
: visitors that Burdine's built a
Lincoln Road branch on Miami
Beach in 1936 that has often been
[called "America's Smartest Re-

HUNGARY AND THE JEWS
Hungary today is the third country in Europe in number of
Jews. The Nazi award of parts of Rumania to Hungary has
increased the Jewish population in Hungary to more than 800,-
000 souls.
With the public statement made by the Hungarian Minister
of Finance that "the Jewish problem in the country will be
solved within months and not within years," it can be expected
that the fate of the third largest community in Europe will go
from bad to worse. Already aggravated by the fact that thou-
sands of Jews are being ousted from commerce, industry and
employment, it will be of little wonder if some elements in this
vassal state of Germany will in the nearest months demand
"coordination" of Jewish life in Hungary along Nazi lines.
It is, therefore, significant that the Finance Minister found it
necessary to reveal in his statement that the experience of
handing over Jewish business enterprises to "pure Hungarians"
does not work out to the benefit of Hungary's economic system.
The Minister did not hesitate to indicate that the elimination
of Jews from commerce is undermining the commercial achieve-
ments of the country and that the "Aryans" who replace the
Jews "are putting their personal interests above the interests of
the state."
From the Minister's statement we learn that the Hungarians
who replace the Jews in their positions are sarcastically called
"the parachutists." Though assuring that the solution of the
Jewish problem in Hungary is only a question of months, the
Minister, as could be seen from his statements, was not exactly
happy about it. Rightly did he point out that the proportion
of the Jews in Hungary is larger than that in Germany or in
Italy and. therefore, the anti-Jewish measures of these two
countries cannot exactly be applied to Hungary without en-
dangering its economy.
What Hungary is apparently expecting is the incorporation
of the Jews of Hungary into the general plan which Hitler has
prepared for the expulsion of all the Jews from Europe, should
he emerge victorious in this war. It is known that Hitler has
assured Rumania and Hungary that the Jews of these Nazi-
dominated countries will be included into his Madagascar
scheme, and it is apparently with an eye to the carrying out
of this scheme that the Hungarian Finance Minister spoke in
his statement of the "total solution" of the Jewish problem in
Hungary.
In the meantime, however, the Minister emphasized that
until this moment of "total solution" arrives, the Jews in Hun-
gary must be permitted to make a modest living "through hon-
est and decent labor," if the country does not want to face "ser-
ious misfortunes." Coming as this warning does from a mem-
ber of the cabinet who is responsible for the economic develop-
ment of the country, it can only be taken as indication that not
all in Hungary are happy about the present ousting of the Jews
torn economic life. Certainly not those who realize that the
Jews are greatly responsible for the economic growth of ihe
country and that the intensive elimination of Jews must
evitably lead to a serious setback in this growth.

WEIZMANN LAUDS B'NAI B'RITH AID TO PALES-
TINE INApDRESSTOCONVENTION IN CHICAGO
Mrs. Henry Monsky, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, Henry Monsky,
president of B'nai B'rith, and Mrs. Weizmann, at the B'nai
B*rith convention, which was addressed by Dr. Weizmann.
To pick up the morning news-
papers these days is not a happy
experience. Behind the unemo-
tional headlines, we can see the
long lines of broken and dis-
rupted lives, the dark vistas of
unhappiness and suffering
stretching ahead into the future.
We shudder. We turn away. How
much better not to sec or hear
too much.
Now there is the story of Mir-
iam and Dora, and their story
tells us something of the un-
quenchable expression of the hu-
man spirit.
Miriam and Dora are only two
from the vast army of suffering
brethren. Escaped from war-
torn Europe, they arrived in New
York some little while ago.
There, through the efforts of the
National Refugee Service, they
were sent to the NYA Camp
Roosevelt, where they were
taught to be beauticians. After
graduating they were resettled
in Miami, where our local refu-
gee committee received them,
aided them in those first uncer-
tain, hopeful days, and finally
placed them in jobs as beauti-
cians. Working here all season,
the two girls have been recon-
structing their lives into some-
thing useful and satisfying once
again.
The National Refugee Seervice
and our own local refugee com-
mittee have been altogether re-
sponsible for the rehabilitation
of many such lives, and the re-
ward for their efforts is found in
two little letters Miriam and
Dora sent in just before the Pass-
over holidays.
Dearest Mrs. Davis:
My best wishes to you for the
holidays. We were, thank God,
so busy during the season that
we hardly could find time for
ourselves, therefore we even
missed to see you for such a
long time. Will you please ac-
cept a few dollars for some of
your "children." We are so hap-
py to be able to show just a little
bit how much we want to show
our gratitude. I hope it will be
more some day. We'll try our
best, dearest Mrs. Davis. With
all my love, Miriam.
My Dear Mrs. Davis:
Please forgive us for not let-
ting you hear from us sooner.
We really are very busy girls
trying to make the best of the
season. Pesach is here and I am
sure you can use a few dollars
for the help of others who still
depend on you. I hope in times
to come we shall be able to show
our appreciation and deep grat-
itude for all you have done for
us. Maybe you like to hear that
Miriam and I are perfectly happy
and living a wonderful life.
Your thankful, Dora.
Here are two broken lives
made whole again; two people
given a chance at happiness, of-
fering from their own limited
means the chance for another's
happiness. Can any man, work-
jing and giving up his time for
the unfortunate and stricken, de-
sire a finer expression of appre-
ciation?
For the true worker for the
cause of humanity believes, that
no matter how uncertain the fu-
ture, nothing can destroy the hu-
man spirit with its passion for
liberty and peace; and that some
day all people will have a chance
to salvage their lives, just as
these two girls have done.
We are grateful that we can
see tangible evidence of the
worth of our work, but we are
still more grateful that we pos-
sess the rare privilege of being
in the vanguard of the crusade
for a liberated humanity.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHINEAS J. BIRON)
ECHOES FROM ABROAD
Henry Torres, the French lawyer who defended Herschel
Grynszpan and who is now in this country, explains that the
French couldn't help turning over Grynszpan to the Nazisbe-
cause Herschel had entered France illegally before he killed
that Nazi attache !!!... A recent poll taken by a Paris news-
paper to determine what movie its readers liked best resulted
in a severe shock to the Nazi authorities The Frenchmen, by
a vast majority, chose the "Three Penny Opera," the music for
which was written by the strictly non-Aryan Kurt Weill ... In
Germany ,we understand, some news commentators see confir
mation of President Roosevelt's "Jewishness" in the fact that he
timed his opening of the Red Sea for the Passover season .
You don't hear so much about the Bund nowadays, but that
doesn't mean that the local Nazties have given up their fifth-
columning They've organized under a new name nowthe
German-American National Alliance ... A new book on Hitler
is expected to appear before the year's out, and it will have one
thing in common with "Mein Kampf"namely, the fact that the
author's name is Hitler ... But this time is being written by
Patrick Hitler, the Fuehrer's anti-Nazi nephew.
NEAR EAST POLITICS
The Zionist rank and file is not aware that the present orien-
tation of the war endangers British sovereignty over Palestine.
There are rumors that Germany has promised Palestine and
Syria to Turkey in return for Ottoman cooperation The Brit-
ish appeaser politicians will yet rue the day when they set the
Grand Mufti free again after he was in their custody ... He is
preparing to stab the British government in the back as soon
as the German troops are sufficiently advanced, either through
Egypt or, heaven forfend, through Turkey We wonder
whether this new political situation in the Near East has any-
thing to do with Dr. Weizmann's plans for a much enlarged and
more powerful American section of the Jewish Agency for Pa!
estine, to be organized forthwith.
THIS AND THAT
A 425-carat sapphire, to be raffled off for the British war re-
lief fund at a thousand berries a ticket, has been donated by
Sir Victor Sassoon, of the famous Anglo-Indian family The
tickets, we understand, are being offered only to people in the
high income brackets, particularly in movieland Among
the most enthusiastic fans of Rubin, the Palestinian painter, are
writers Sam and Bella Spewack Which reminds us to report
that Palestinian painter Elias Newman has returned to these
northern latitudes from Mexico City, where he spent the winter
painting, and is at this moment having a one-man show at the
Baltimore Museum of Art, where he is delivering a lecture on
Palestinian art this Friday Volume Four of the Universal
Jewish Encyclopedia will soon be ready for publication, we
hear ... In the meanwhile you'll be interested to know that
some very distinguished names have been added to the En-
cyclopedia's list of contributors Among them are Andre
Maurois, Lion Feuchtwanger, Paul de Kruif, and A. A. Berle. Jr.
STAGE AND SCREEN
Our hat is off to Billy Rose, who is making efforts to have
the famous Spanish painter Picasso brought to this country
from France, where he is now being held Rose has offered
to pay all the expenses involved in the rescue of the artist from
Europe .Waste not. want not is an excellent motto, but it
didn t do Joe Schmtzer, Hollywood costumer, any good ... For
over 20 years Schnitzer saved the army costumes used in films
about the first world waronly to discover that, with the
changes in uniform that have taken place in most countries,
those costumes are now good only for the ragbag, and no good
at all for pictures about the present world war When you see
Man Hunt Walter Pidgeon's forthcoming film, and hear the
blood hounds baying as the hero escapes from pursuing Nazi
storm troopers remember that the perfect timing of the dogs'
barks entirely to the credit of Director Fritz Lang ... In fact

From France, Pierre Lazareff
brings this story of the Nazi ef-
fort to create good will among
the French population ... It
seems that, among the various
posters the Nazis have pat up to
show the French what gentle-
men they (the Germans) are, was
one which prominently pro-
claimed: "We gave you back the
ashes of the son of Napoleon" .
And on this poster some shiver-
ing Frenchman crayoned, in
heavy black letters: "Take back
the ashes, and give us some coal."

OP MAY ELECTION
The consensus of opinion ex- j
pressed by the committee of one
hundred prominent citizens of
Miami, supporting the candidacy
of Abe Aronovitz for the city
commission, is that their candi-
date will come through with fly-
ing colors on election day. This
optimism is based chiefly on
many reports that public opinion
is strongly against the ticket se-
lected by the organization called
the "Believers in Miami."
Harry J Tryon. campaign man-
ager for Abe Aronovitz. says. "It
is very gratifying to see that the
public has awakened to the re-
alization that it is no longer nec-
essary for the politically-con-
trolled daily newspapers and the
special interests which have
been controlling your city hall
for years, to continue picking
commissioners for us. A strong
feeling of resentment is evident
all over town. Everyone seems
to be saying the same thing, "I
am not going to vote the Bleed-
ers' ticket'." Mr. Tryon conclud-
ed, "I have fought these special
interests at the side of Abe Aron-
ovitz for many years and the day
of awakening is now here. I feel
confident that Aronovitz will be
elected."
"I am very much pleased,"
said Aronovitz. "to see so many
people rallying tc my support. It
is giving me more confidence
that I shall win this election.

House of Commons, urged at a
press conference here the cre-

ARONOVITZ ENDORSED

BCUtiv( sid sit of Nathan

There is no question in my

Joseph M. Lipton, prominent in
many activities, is another sup-
porter of Aronovitz. He says:
"Abe Aronovitz is an able,
sincere and intelligent lawyer.
I am confident that he will make
a good progressive commissioner
if elected. He is entitled to sup-
port from all citizens who are in-
terested in good government.'
are now giving me their support.
Evidently the present adminis-
tration, headed by Mayor Orr.
is looked upon with greater dis-
satisfaction than even any pre-
ceding commission, so much so
that the ticket selected by the
"Bleeders of Miami" is being
scrutinized with unusual suspic-
ion and lack of faith by the
people of Miami.
Aronovitz is appealing to his
supporters that they carry the
message of truth to their neigh-
bors and friends to support him
and repudiate the machine-ticket
sponsored by the daily newspa-
pers..
Carl W< owner of the

supporting Ab< Aronovitz. He
says
"I should like to see Abe Ar-
onovitz elected to the city com-
mission because he is entitled to
hold that position as a reward
for his long years of service in
our community. He has shown
that he is independent, fearless.
honest and capable"

Matthew S. Bandler of June
Dairy Products Company. Miami,
says:
"I have known Abe Aronovitz
for many years and have always
been keenly interested in his
public activities. It seems to me
that he has always endeavored
to do the right thing without
fear or favor. It is natural that
some misinformed people will
not go along with him but well-
informed and unprejudiced opin-
ion does respect our Abe for his
honest and dutiful convictions."

Elry Stone, prominent lawyer
and civic leader, endorses Aron-
ovitz. He says:
"Having had the pleasure and
opportunity of having worked
with Abe Aronovitz for many
years in civic and welfare work,
I regard him as one of the finest
type men in our community. It
would be. I think, the right
thing for every intelligent and
civic-minded citizen to vote for
Abe in the coming election. He
is undoubtedly sufficiently cap-
able to participate in the admin-

Compare roominess in this year's cars,
and you find the Ford first in its field for
the passenger space it gives.
Test riding quality, and you find in the
new Ford a soft and quiet fine*-car ride
that is a revelation to owners.
Lift the hood, and you find the only
8-cylinder engine in the low-price field,
now finer and more efficient than ever.
Check on economy, and you find that offi-
cial AAA records show Ford first in its
class in the 1941 Gilmore-Grand Canyon

Look into mechanical quality, and you
soon find that the big Rouge plant has
never built so much money's worth into
a car as goes into this one.
No matter what you're driving now, if
you're buying a new car, be sure to see this

money ever bought so much car as Ford

FRIADAY, APRIL 25, IS
A new policy went into effect
this past Sunday. For the first
time in the history of Sholem
Lodge official members of the
Auxiliary met in executive ses-
sion with the officers of the
Lodge. The ladies were given
the privilege of having three rep-
resentatives at officers' meetings
and they have taken advantage
of it. Mrs. Jennie Rotfort, Mrs.
Milton A. Friedman, and Mrs.
Joseph A. Berman are the repre-
sentatives, the first two of whom
were present at the meeting.
The meeting was called primar-
ily for selection of delegates and
alternates to represent the Lodge
in Washington on May 11 and 12
at District 5 Convention. Exact-
ly thirty-four brothers had signi-
fied a desire to attend; so, in
view of the fact that we are only
entitled to seventeen delegates,
the same were selected and the
remainder became automatically
alternates. A special car will
probably be at the disposal of
the men going up and arrange-
ments are being made for the
other lodges in the state to go
up together with us. Only those
whose dues are fully paid up will
be eligible to attend from Miami.
This article is being written pri-
or to the smoker and it is not
known therefore at this time how
much money will be available to
be applied toward transportation
expenses of the delegates.
I have been told that the re-
cent Student Seder was again
successful and brought added
commendation to the Lodge. The
Student Union committees of the
Lodge and Auxiliary are to be
congratulated and applauded for
their work. Incidentally, this
coming Sunday there will be
held in Orlando a state wide
meeting of student union B'nai
B'rith representatives. Quite a
discussion will be held and fire-
works are expected on the ques-
tion of additional rabbis and in-
creased budget.
The Americanism committee,
one of the most important in the
Lodge, is planning a huge pro-
gram on "I Am An American
Day" in May. Dr. B. Berkeley,
chairman of the committee,
states that if May dates are un-
available the Lodge will defin-
itely sponsor a Flag Day cele-
bration. The Americanism pro-
gram of last year was one of the
outstanding affairs of the year.
Although it is a month away
the ladies are already reminding
us to be sure to place on our cal-
endar the date of May 27th. At
that time the Auxiliary will spon-
sor its first public event. Apro-
pos it will be novel and in the
form of a box supper. The set-
ting is the beautiful Shelborne
Hotel on Miami Beach. Mrs. Jo-
seph Berman is in charge of all
arrangements. More about this
will appear in subsequent issues
but keep it in mind.
With all of the officers, com-
mittee chairmen, and many oth-
er active brothers planning on
attending the District convention
and thus being absent from the
regularly scheduled meeting
night on the second Tuesday in
May, it was decided that the
next regular meeting of Sholem
Lodge would take place on May
20th. There has been constant-
ly recurring discussion concern-
ing the meeting place of the
Lodge. In order to satisfy every
brother a special committee hos|
been appointed to thoroughly in-
vestigate all available sites and
report back at an early date. The
committee headed by Marx Fein-
berg consists of Jack August,
Rudy Adler, Sam Silver, and
Jack Abbott.
The names just mentioned re-
minds of two things. First, that
the membership drive is still on
and Rudy and his committee are
doing a fine job. Now that the
season is on the decline our
brothers should have more time
with which to devote to Lodge
activities. Why not help Rudy
as your first duty. The second
reminder is that Sam Silver has
just been appointed chairman of
the A. Z. A. committee. Sam
is advisor of the Miami chapter
and is certain to make an excel-
lent chairman. Johnny Kronen-
feld, who had been chairman,
had to resign because of lack of
time to devote to this so import-
ant work.
Last Sunday night it was my
great pleasure to be a guest
speaker at the joint installation
of the West Palm Beach A. Z. A.
and B'nai B'rith officers. Broth-
er Ike Levin and I drove up to-
gether with our respective wives
and found a large contingent
from Miami up there. Brother
Ike installed the men and I in-
stalled the A. Z. A. Elry Stone
addressed them. Mrs. Levin also
was heard. Other dignitaries
who were present and introduced
included Lou Heiman, Jennie
Rotfort, Mrs. Spanner, and Mrs.
Sol Goldstrom of the Miami
group and Morris LaBellman and
Barney Cohen of Orlando. The
latter two arrived at the banquet
just in time to conclude the
speeches. More than 200 guests
were present at the Mayflower
Hotel to witness a really splen-
did affair. After dinner dancing
was enjoyed by all.
Brother Charley Wax was
toastmaster and did a bang up
job. Dave Katz. the outgoing
president, who did such swell
work this past year, presented
to incoming President Joe Lesser
a gavel that was prepared by
Dave's brother. It was a frater-
nal gesture and speaks well for
the harmony prevailing in West
Palm Beach. Incidentally, the
West Palm Beach Auxiliary came
in for a great deal of praise and
particularly its president. The
program also included the induc-
tion into the Lodge of about
twenty members of the Hebrew
Athletic Club. That is really do-
ing things in a big way. It would
be an injustice not to mention
that two members of the West
Palm Beach Lodge, Martin Dub-
bin and Sid Pepper, working to-
gether, canvassed the entire city
and in a comparatively short
time collected five hundred dol-
lars in delinquent dues. Now
everyone in that city belonging
to the Lodge is paid up in full.
This should serve as an incent-
ive and example to us in Sholem
Lodge to get behind Sol "Gold-
strom in the collection of delin-
quent dues and help swell our
treasury that is now sadly deplet-
ed. In closing, our best wishes
are extended to our brother
lodge. May it continue to go
from success to success.

The Wave of the Past
Much has been heard of
regarding "The Wave of the
ture," Mrs. Anne Lindbera
book ,in which she defends
ism as being a new order
things. Replying to Mrs. L,is]
bergh, who voices sentimel
similar to her husband's hi
been numerous. But not all
them have been as telling asj
little booklet written by ReuM
Henry Markham, "an acutely
servant, determined, and spll
ed" correspondent for the Chq
tian Science Monitor. It
called "The Wave of the Past.l
Mr. Markham's leaflet, flavoq
with apt quotations from
Bible, has as its introductory nij
these familiar words: "Woe
them that call evil good,
good evil; that put darkness
light and light for darkness .
He calls Communism, FascL
and Nazism, "blasted hopes, bra1
en promises, sacred trusts
trayed." Hitlerism he descrilj
as "a temporary resurgence
a black and bloody wave of
past, carrying slavery and
gradation on its crest and aimil
to destroy all the good manku]
has built through the ages."
After answering succinctly a{
effectively one by one all
arguments advanced by
Lindbergh for Nazism, Markha
concludes: "In this issue the
are only two sides. No neut
course remains. Each person
either against this wave of
past or he is for it; either he
poses the onslaught of Hitlery
or supports it. If he makes
choice, that is a choice; if
takes no side, he is on Hitle
side; if he does not act, that
an actfor Hitler. Not all issu|
are like that. At some cro
roads, one may turn left, or rigH
or just keep on going, or ev<
stop and wait. But at some, od
can't. When a boat sinks, evel,
passenger either stays on or ge
off. If one can't decidehe h4
decided.
"The road to isolationism
absolutely closed. Every refuj
has been swept away. America
fate hangs on this issue. Ever,
adult citizen, whatever may
the motives that direct his decuj
ion or his indecision, is on th
side of Nazi tyranny or on tb
side fighting it. Let us take sidi
consciously, solemnly, nobly, ar
not by default"
"The Wave of the Pest" is tfc
kind of pamphlet that yo
would want to tuck in your pock-
et, to be read and reread.

JIflOMOVITZ SURE OP MAY ELECTION The consensus of opinion exj pressed by the committee of one hundred prominent citizens of Miami, supporting the candidacy of Abe Aronovitz for the city commission, is that their candidate will come through with flying colors on election day. This optimism is based chiefly on many reports that public opinion is strongly against the ticket selected by the organization called the "Believers in Miami." Harry J Tryon. campaign manager for Abe Aronovitz. says. "It is very gratifying to see that the public has awakened to the realization that it is no longer necessary for the politically-controlled daily newspapers and the special interests which have been controlling your city hall for years, to continue picking commissioners for us. A strong feeling of resentment is evident all over town. Everyone seems to be saying the same thing, "I am not going to vote the Bleeders' ticket'." Mr. Tryon concluded, "I have fought these special interests at the side of Abe Aronovitz for many years and the day of awakening is now here. I feel confident that Aronovitz will be elected." "I am very much pleased," said Aronovitz. "to see so many people rallying tc my support. It is giving me more confidence that I shall win this election. A number ol sutistantal and influential citizens who formerly supported my political opponents URGES CREATION OF JEWISH STATE New York (WNS)—Declaring that the Jews have been fighting the battle of the democracy I more than seven years. Major Victor A. Cazelet. member of the House of Commons, urged at a press conference here the creation of a Jewish state in Pales; tine at the end of the war in or, der to bring about the solution of the problem of Jewish home' lessness in many part of the world. Major Cazelet. who arrived in this country recently as liaison officer between the British government and General Sikorski, Premier of the Polish g. ment-in-exile. has for many years been chairman of the Palestine Committee and Refugee Committee in the House of Commons. In a statement issued at the headquarters of the Emergency Committee for Zionist Affairs. Major Cazelet declared that "in view of its strategic geographical position Palestine is bound to play an important role in the defense of the Suez Canal." Emphasizing that Palestine has made as great a contribution to the solution of the Jewish refugee problem as all other countries combined.

I believe that he will prove himt the confidence that his supporters place in him." istration of the affairs of our city." • • Joseph M. Lipton, prominent in many activities, is another supporter of Aronovitz. He says: "Abe Aronovitz is an able, sincere and intelligent lawyer. I am confident that he will make a good progressive commissioner if elected. He is entitled to support from all citizens who are interested in good government.' are now giving me their support. Evidently the present administration, headed by Mayor Orr. is looked upon with greater dissatisfaction than even any preceding commission, so much so that the ticket selected by the "Bleeders of Miami" is being scrutinized with unusual suspicion and lack of faith by the people of Miami. Aronovitz is appealing to his supporters that they carry the message of truth to their neighbors and friends to support him and repudiate the machine-ticket sponsored by the daily newspapers.. Carl W< owner of the _: chain-stores, is supporting Ab< Aronovitz. He says "I should like to see Abe Aronovitz elected to the city commission because he is entitled to hold that position as a reward for his long years of service in our community. He has shown that he is independent, fearless. honest and capable" • • • Matthew S. Bandler of June Dairy Products Company. Miami, says: "I have known Abe Aronovitz for many years and have always been keenly interested in his public activities. It seems to me that he has always endeavored to do the right thing without fear or favor. It is natural that some misinformed people will not go along with him but wellinformed and unprejudiced opinion does respect our Abe for his honest and dutiful convictions." • • • Elry Stone, prominent lawyer and civic leader, endorses Aronovitz. He says: "Having had the pleasure and opportunity of having worked with Abe Aronovitz for many years in civic and welfare work, I regard him as one of the finest type men in our community. It would be. I think, the right thing for every intelligent and civic-minded citizen to vote for Abe in the coming election.

He was then editor of L'ltalia, the policies of which have been consistently fascist. He was a member of the fascist Italian American National Union. In 1939, as a result of a bitter personal quarrel, he quit L'ltalia and founded La Tribuna. He used this publication to attack his old associates; he attracted to his side various disgruntled fascist elements. "As the struggle between the factions became increasingly severe, Arena printed venomous tirades against the Italian consulate in Chicago, which was lending its support to the L'ltalia group. Ho sued his old friends on L'ltalia and they sued him. Finally Arena turned informer against his former pals. He did this not because he disagreed with them politically. He was as pro-fascist and anti-Semitic as the best of them; scarcely a day passed without his praising Mussolini or Hitler. But, carried away by an animosity not uncommon among warring gangsters, he was out to get them in any way that he could He offered evidence to the Dies Committee." At the San Jaun Hotel. Orlando.

Stockholm (WNS)—Scores of .prominent Norwegian Jews were arrested in a series of raids conducted by the Nazi secret police in Oslo. Bergen, and Trondheim, according to newspaper dispatches here. Many of the Jewish leaders were imprisoned, accused 'of organizing anti-Nazi demon! strations. A Nazi police official announced after the mass raids that several Jewish leaders had 'confessed'' that they had received instructions from foreign countries to instigate a revolt against the present Nazified Quisling regime. MEMOES F HAN CE BE YUGOSLAV RABBI KILLED BY Athens (WNS)—Dr. Isaac Alcalay. 60-year-old Chief Rabbi of Yugoslavia and the first Jewish member of the Yugoslav Parliament, was among the 700 Jews killed when Nazi bombing squadrons rained death and destruction on defenseless Belgrade, it was reported here. The Chief Rabbi was killed, the report said, when a Nazi bomb crashed through the synagogue in which he and several hundred other Jewish men, women and children had taken shelter during an air raid. The bomb completely demolished the building. Dr. Alcalay was trying to calm his frightened congregation when j he met his death, the report addI ed. The raid, which journalists and diplomats arriving here from Yugoslavia described as one of the fiercest since the beginning of the war, destroyed every synagogue and Jewish community center in Belgrade. DRAFT JEWS FOR FORCED LABOR IN ROTTERDAM Zurich (WNS)—Nazi Commissioner Arthur Seyss-Inquart has signed a dercee compelling Jews in Rotterdam, Nazi-occupied Holland, to report for compulsory labor,, it was reported here. GOV. LEHMAN SIGNS BILL BARRING DISCRIMINATION Albany (WNS)—Governor Herbert H. Lehman has signed the Mahoney bill which forbids discrimination because of race, color or creed in employment in defense industries. The governor had requested passage of such a law in his annual message to the state legislature. The bill reads: "It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation engaged to any extent whatsoever in the production, manufacture or distribution of military or naval material, equipment or supplies for the State of New York or for the Federal government to refuse to employ any person in any capacity on account of race, creed or color of such person." Vichy (WNS)—Mendes France, former Deputy from Seine-Inferieure and a member of one of the foremost Jewish families in Bayonne, will be tried early next month by a military court at Clermont-Ferrand, charged with desertion from the army, it was learned here. Meanwhile, Philippe de Rothschild, son of Baron Henri de Rothschild, who had been arrested on a similar charge in Algeria iand brought to France for trial, iwas exonerated by the military court and released from custody. At the same time, it was learned that Mme. Andre Blumel, wife of the Chief of Cabinet during Leon Blum's Popular Front government, and her son were arrested and jailed when they were turned over to the French authorities by the Spanish government. Mme. Blumel and her son, who were accused of crossing illegally into Spain from France last June, are awaiting trial in a prison at Perprynan, southern France. A list of 131 additional Jewish firms and merchants whose enterprises in the occupied zone have been taken over by Aryan "provisional administrators" has been published in the Journal Official. j,Fifty-five of the Jewish shops turned over to "Aryan" administrators were in Paris, bringing the number of Jewish businesses in Paris taken over since the fall of France to 2,273. The Journal Official disclosed that Raymond Berr, well-known Jewish mining engineer, has been exempted from the regulations of the anti-Jewish statute because of his "conspicious scientific services" in the field of agricultural chemistry.

FOOD SHORTAGE REPORTED IN EGYPT AND PALESTINE Cairo (WNS)—The influx of Nazi "tourists" to the Near East was followed by Nazi and Italian radio broadcasts reporting acute food shortages in Egypt, Palestine and other Near Eastern countries, leading neutral quarters here to believe that an attempted invasion of Palestine was among the Axis high command's future plans. While British troops hammered the Nazi legions to a standstill in Egypt, the Axis propaganda machine devoted its attention to the Near East, painting vivid stories of unrest and famine. Propaganda campaiens. nci.tral sources here said, wore the harbinu—s c-f future Nazi Invasion attempts. One Rome rad : o report stated that British troths were being transported f-om Palestine to Egypt, leaving the Holy Land defenseless. nilar stories were spread by Iht Berlin radio.

FRIDAY. APRIL 25, 1941 BURQINE'S BUYS HUTCH'S STORE PALM BEACH Pioneer Concern Now Comes Under Miami Management Burdine's Department store has purchased Hatch's in West Palm Beach, one of the oldest department stores in that community, and, effective Saturday, has taken over the complete operation of the store. Roy Mann, formerly superintendent of Burdine's in Miami and. at the time of the purchase associated with Hatch's, has been named manager of the Burdine's West Palm Beach store. History of the Hatch store dates back to 1909 when the Palm Beach Dry Goods Co. was established and operated by H. G. Greer. In 1912 Georgq N. Hatch of Rockledge and N. P. Yowell of Orlando purchased this little dry goods store and later changed 1"^^ the name to Hatch's. Following the reorganization, the store grew rapidly at its first location in the Sheen building on Clematis street, even though it had only two clerks. In 1936 the store was moved to a new $300,000 building at Clematis street and Olive avenue, a modern, streamlined, air-canditioned building that now has 89 year-round employes. Additional improvements of approximately $22,000 Were spent, largely on street floor improvements, in the summer of 1940. There are 23 departments in the store, including women's and children's apparel, accessories, silk and cotton piece goods, men's furnishings and shoes. In acquiring the Hatch store in West Palm Beach, Burdine's brings to the entire southeast section of Florida a reputation for fashion prestige that is national in scope, officials explained. The same policies and services will be pursued at the new West Palm Beach store that now are in force at the Miami store. Burj dine's Sunshine Fashions will be featured. Prices will be identical on similar merchandise at both stores. Charge customers soon Will be given a Charga-Plate that; will be honored at all Burdine stores. It was announced that starting j Monday .the new store hours will | be from 9:30 a. m. to 5:30 p. m., > instead of 9 to 5:30. Other polijcies benefiting employes will be 'identical to those now enjoyed by Miami store employes. Started in 1898. when Miami had a population of only 600, Burdine's grew under the founder W. M. Burdine. Sr.. until in 1912 the business was moved in| to the present location on Flag, ler street. As the town grew. Burdine's kept step. In 1929. Roddy Burdine. a son of the founder who headed the firm upon the death of his father in 1911, foresaw Burdine's leadership in the fashion world and developed the name and idea of "Sunshine Fashions." a laboratory or proving ground where new merchandise for the coming summer is ; tested and approved each resort season. So great was the demand for "Sunshine Fashions'' by resort : visitors that Burdine's built a Lincoln Road branch on Miami Beach in 1936 that has often been [called "America's Smartest Re* I**#-.# %  rhun*u PAGE THREE CLUB WOMAN WILL SPEAK AT MEETING OF CONGRESS On Tuesday. April 29 at 2 p. m. the Women's Division of the American Jewish Congress will hold their monthly meeting at the home of Mrs. A. J. Tobin. 849 Lenox Avenue. Miami Beach.

PAGE EIGHT +Jewlst ncridfiari FRIADAY, APRIL 25, IS A new policy went into effect this past Sunday. For the first time in the history of Sholem Lodge official members of the Auxiliary met in executive session with the officers of the Lodge. The ladies were given the privilege of having three representatives at officers' meetings and they have taken advantage of it. Mrs. Jennie Rotfort, Mrs. Milton A. Friedman, and Mrs. Joseph A. Berman are the representatives, the first two of whom were present at the meeting. The meeting was called primarily for selection of delegates and alternates to represent the Lodge in Washington on May 11 and 12 at District 5 Convention. Exactly thirty-four brothers had signified a desire to attend; so, in view of the fact that we are only entitled to seventeen delegates, the same were selected and the remainder became automatically alternates. A special car will probably be at the disposal of the men going up and arrangements are being made for the other lodges in the state to go up together with us. Only those whose dues are fully paid up will be eligible to attend from Miami. This article is being written prior to the smoker and it is not known therefore at this time how much money will be available to be applied toward transportation expenses of the delegates. I have been told that the recent Student Seder was again successful and brought added commendation to the Lodge. The Student Union committees of the Lodge and Auxiliary are to be congratulated and applauded for their work. Incidentally, this coming Sunday there will be held in Orlando a state wide meeting of student union B'nai B'rith representatives. Quite a discussion will be held and fireworks are expected on the question of additional rabbis and increased budget. The Americanism committee, one of the most important in the Lodge, is planning a huge program on "I Am An American Day" in May. Dr. B. Berkeley, chairman of the committee, states that if May dates are unavailable the Lodge will definitely sponsor a Flag Day celebration. The Americanism program of last year was one of the outstanding affairs of the year. Although it is a month away the ladies are already reminding us to be sure to place on our calendar the date of May 27th. At that time the Auxiliary will sponsor its first public event. Apropos it will be novel and in the form of a box supper. The setting is the beautiful Shelborne Hotel on Miami Beach. Mrs. Joseph Berman is in charge of all arrangements. More about this will appear in subsequent issues but keep it in mind. With all of the officers, committee chairmen, and many other active brothers planning on attending the District convention and thus being absent from the regularly scheduled meeting night on the second Tuesday in May, it was decided that the next regular meeting of Sholem Lodge would take place on May 20th. There has been constantly recurring discussion concerning the meeting place of the Lodge. In order to satisfy every brother a special committee hos| been appointed to thoroughly investigate all available sites and report back at an early date. The committee headed by Marx Feinberg consists of Jack August, Rudy Adler, Sam Silver, and Jack Abbott. The names just mentioned reminds of two things. First, that the membership drive is still on and Rudy and his committee are doing a fine job. Now that the season is on the decline our brothers should have more time with which to devote to Lodge activities. Why not help Rudy as your first duty. The second reminder is that Sam Silver has just been appointed chairman of the A. Z. A. committee. Sam is advisor of the Miami chapter and is certain to make an excellent chairman. Johnny Kronenfeld, who had been chairman, had to resign because of lack of time to devote to this so important work. Last Sunday night it was my great pleasure to be a guest speaker at the joint installation of the West Palm Beach A. Z. A. and B'nai B'rith officers. Brother Ike Levin and I drove up together with our respective wives and found a large contingent from Miami up there. Brother Ike installed the men and I installed the A. Z. A. Elry Stone addressed them. Mrs. Levin also was heard. Other dignitaries who were present and introduced included Lou Heiman, Jennie Rotfort, Mrs. Spanner, and Mrs. Sol Goldstrom of the Miami group and Morris LaBellman and Barney Cohen of Orlando. The latter two arrived at the banquet just in time to conclude the speeches. More than 200 guests were present at the Mayflower Hotel to witness a really splendid affair. After dinner dancing was enjoyed by all. Brother Charley Wax was toastmaster and did a bang up job. Dave Katz. the outgoing president, who did such swell work this past year, presented to incoming President Joe Lesser a gavel that was prepared by Dave's brother. It was a fraternal gesture and speaks well for the harmony prevailing in West Palm Beach. Incidentally, the West Palm Beach Auxiliary came in for a great deal of praise and particularly its president. The program also included the induction into the Lodge of about twenty members of the Hebrew Athletic Club. That is really doing things in a big way. It would be an injustice not to mention that two members of the West Palm Beach Lodge, Martin Dubbin and Sid Pepper, working together, canvassed the entire city and in a comparatively short time collected five hundred dollars in delinquent dues. Now everyone in that city belonging to the Lodge is paid up in full. This should serve as an incentive and example to us in Sholem Lodge to get behind Sol "Goldstrom in the collection of delinquent dues and help swell our treasury that is now sadly depleted. In closing, our best wishes are extended to our brother lodge. May it continue to go from success to success. MIAMI JEWISH ORTHODOX CONGREGATION ABRAHAM A. KELLNER.

Replying to Mrs. L,is] bergh, who voices sentimel similar to her husband's hi been numerous. But not all them have been as telling asj little booklet written by ReuM Henry Markham, "an acutely servant, determined, and spll ed" correspondent for the Chq tian Science Monitor. It called "The Wave of the Past.l Mr. Markham's leaflet, flavoq with apt quotations from Bible, has as its introductory nij these familiar words: "Woe them that call evil good, good evil; that put darkness light and light for darkness He calls Communism, FascL and Nazism, "blasted hopes, bra 1 en promises, sacred trusts trayed." Hitlerism he descrilj as "a temporary resurgence a black and bloody wave of past, carrying slavery and gradation on its crest and aimil to destroy all the good manku] has built through the ages." After answering succinctly a{ effectively one by one all arguments advanced by Lindbergh for Nazism, Markha concludes: "In this issue the are only two sides. No neut course remains. Each person either against this wave of past or he is for it; either he poses the onslaught of Hitlery or supports it. If he makes choice, that is a choice; if takes no side, he is on Hitle side; if he does not act, that an act—for Hitler. Not all issu| are like that. At some cro roads, one may turn left, or rigH or just keep on going, or ev< stop and wait. But at some, od can't. When a boat sinks, evel, passenger either stays on or ge off. If one can't decide—he h4 decided. "The road to isolationism absolutely closed. Every refuj has been swept away. America fate hangs on this issue. Ever, adult citizen, whatever may the motives that direct his decuj ion or his indecision, is on th side of Nazi tyranny or on tb side fighting it. Let us take sidi consciously, solemnly, nobly, ar not by default" "The Wave of the Pest" is tfc kind of pamphlet that yo would want to tuck in your pocket, to be read and reread.

SHOCHET Managing Editor Entered as second class matter July 4, 1930 at the Post Office of Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR $2.00 SiX MONTHS $ 1.00 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, APRIL 25, 1941 VOLUME 14 NUMBER 17 Refugees HUNGARY AND THE JEWS Hungary today is the third country in Europe in number of Jews. The Nazi award of parts of Rumania to Hungary has increased the Jewish population in Hungary to more than 800,000 souls. With the public statement made by the Hungarian Minister of Finance that "the Jewish problem in the country will be solved within months and not within years," it can be expected that the fate of the third largest community in Europe will go from bad to worse. Already aggravated by the fact that thousands of Jews are being ousted from commerce, industry and employment, it will be of little wonder if some elements in this vassal state of Germany will in the nearest months demand "coordination" of Jewish life in Hungary along Nazi lines. It is, therefore, significant that the Finance Minister found it necessary to reveal in his statement that the experience of handing over Jewish business enterprises to "pure Hungarians" does not work out to the benefit of Hungary's economic system. The Minister did not hesitate to indicate that the elimination of Jews from commerce is undermining the commercial achievements of the country and that the "Aryans" who replace the Jews "are putting their personal interests above the interests of the state." From the Minister's statement we learn that the Hungarians who replace the Jews in their positions are sarcastically called "the parachutists." Though assuring that the solution of the Jewish problem in Hungary is only a question of months, the Minister, as could be seen from his statements, was not exactly happy about it. Rightly did he point out that the proportion of the Jews in Hungary is larger than that in Germany or in Italy and. therefore, the anti-Jewish measures of these two countries cannot exactly be applied to Hungary without endangering its economy. What Hungary is apparently expecting is the incorporation of the Jews of Hungary into the general plan which Hitler has prepared for the expulsion of all the Jews from Europe, should he emerge victorious in this war. It is known that Hitler has assured Rumania and Hungary that the Jews of these Nazidominated countries will be included into his Madagascar scheme, and it is apparently with an eye to the carrying out of this scheme that the Hungarian Finance Minister spoke in his statement of the "total solution" of the Jewish problem in Hungary. In the meantime, however, the Minister emphasized that until this moment of "total solution" arrives, the Jews in Hungary must be permitted to make a modest living "through honest and decent labor," if the country does not want to face "serious misfortunes." Coming as this warning does from a member of the cabinet who is responsible for the economic development of the country, it can only be taken as indication that not all in Hungary are happy about the present ousting of the Jews torn economic life. Certainly not those who realize that the Jews are greatly responsible for the economic growth of ihe country and that the intensive elimination of Jews must evitably lead to a serious setback in this growth. inWEIZMANN LAUDS B'NAI B'RITH AID TO PALESTINE INApDRESSTOCONVENTION IN CHICAGO Mrs. Henry Monsky, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, Henry Monsky, president of B'nai B'rith, and Mrs. Weizmann, at the B'nai B*rith convention, which was addressed by Dr. Weizmann. To pick up the morning newspapers these days is not a happy experience. Behind the unemotional headlines, we can see the long lines of broken and disrupted lives, the dark vistas of unhappiness and suffering stretching ahead into the future. We shudder. We turn away. How much better not to sec or hear too much. Now there is the story of Miriam and Dora, and their story tells us something of the unquenchable expression of the human spirit. Miriam and Dora are only two from the vast army of suffering brethren. Escaped from wartorn Europe, they arrived in New York some little while ago. There, through the efforts of the National Refugee Service, they were sent to the NYA Camp Roosevelt, where they were taught to be beauticians. After graduating they were resettled in Miami, where our local refugee committee received them, aided them in those first uncertain, hopeful days, and finally placed them in jobs as beauticians. Working here all season, the two girls have been reconstructing their lives into something useful and satisfying once again. The National Refugee Seervice and our own local refugee committee have been altogether responsible for the rehabilitation of many such lives, and the reward for their efforts is found in two little letters Miriam and Dora sent in just before the Passover holidays. Dearest Mrs. Davis: My best wishes to you for the holidays. We were, thank God, so busy during the season that we hardly could find time for ourselves, therefore we even missed to see you for such a long time. Will you please accept a few dollars for some of your "children." We are so happy to be able to show just a little bit how much we want to show our gratitude. I hope it will be more some day. We'll try our best, dearest Mrs. Davis. With all my love, Miriam. My Dear Mrs. Davis: Please forgive us for not letting you hear from us sooner. We really are very busy girls— trying to make the best of the season. Pesach is here and I am sure you can use a few dollars for the help of others who still depend on you. I hope in times to come we shall be able to show our appreciation and deep gratitude for all you have done for us. Maybe you like to hear that Miriam and I are perfectly happy and living a wonderful life. Your thankful, Dora. Here are two broken lives made whole again; two people given a chance at happiness, offering from their own limited means the chance for another's happiness. Can any man, workjing and giving up his time for the unfortunate and stricken, desire a finer expression of appreciation? For the true worker for the cause of humanity believes, that no matter how uncertain the future, nothing can destroy the human spirit with its passion for liberty and peace; and that some day all people will have a chance to salvage their lives, just as these two girls have done. We are grateful that we can see tangible evidence of the worth of our work, but we are still more grateful that we possess the rare privilege of being in the vanguard of the crusade for a liberated humanity. Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHINEAS J. BIRON) ECHOES FROM ABROAD Henry Torres, the French lawyer who defended Herschel Grynszpan and who is now in this country, explains that the French couldn't help turning over Grynszpan to the Nazis—because Herschel had entered France illegally before he killed that Nazi attache !!!... A recent poll taken by a Paris newspaper to determine what movie its readers liked best resulted in a severe shock to the Nazi authorities The Frenchmen, by a vast majority, chose the "Three Penny Opera," the music for which was written by the strictly non-Aryan Kurt Weill ... In Germany ,we understand, some news commentators see confir mation of President Roosevelt's "Jewishness" in the fact that he timed his opening of the Red Sea for the Passover season You don't hear so much about the Bund nowadays, but that doesn't mean that the local Nazties have given up their fifthcolumning They've organized under a new name now—the German-American National Alliance ... A new book on Hitler is expected to appear before the year's out, and it will have one thing in common with "Mein Kampf"—namely, the fact that the author's name is Hitler ... But this time is being written by Patrick Hitler, the Fuehrer's anti-Nazi nephew. NEAR EAST POLITICS The Zionist rank and file is not aware that the present orientation of the war endangers British sovereignty over Palestine. There are rumors that Germany has promised Palestine and Syria to Turkey in return for Ottoman cooperation The British appeaser politicians will yet rue the day when they set the Grand Mufti free again after he was in their custody ... He is preparing to stab the British government in the back as soon as the German troops are sufficiently advanced, either through Egypt or, heaven forfend, through Turkey We wonder whether this new political situation in the Near East has anything to do with Dr. Weizmann's plans for a much enlarged and more powerful American section of the Jewish Agency for Pa! estine, to be organized forthwith. THIS AND THAT A 425-carat sapphire, to be raffled off for the British war relief fund at a thousand berries a ticket, has been donated by Sir Victor Sassoon, of the famous Anglo-Indian family The tickets, we understand, are being offered only to people in the high income brackets, particularly in movieland Among the most enthusiastic fans of Rubin, the Palestinian painter, are writers Sam and Bella Spewack Which reminds us to report that Palestinian painter Elias Newman has returned to these northern latitudes from Mexico City, where he spent the winter painting, and is at this moment having a one-man show at the Baltimore Museum of Art, where he is delivering a lecture on Palestinian art this Friday Volume Four of the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia will soon be ready for publication, we hear ... In the meanwhile you'll be interested to know that some very distinguished names have been added to the Encyclopedia's list of contributors Among them are Andre Maurois, Lion Feuchtwanger, Paul de Kruif, and A. A. Berle. Jr. STAGE AND SCREEN Our hat is off to Billy Rose, who is making efforts to have the famous Spanish painter Picasso brought to this country from France, where he is now being held Rose has offered to pay all the expenses involved in the rescue of the artist from Europe .Waste not. want not is an excellent motto, but it didn t do Joe Schmtzer, Hollywood costumer, any good ... For over 20 years Schnitzer saved the army costumes used in films about the first world war—only to discover that, with the changes in uniform that have taken place in most countries, those costumes are now good only for the ragbag, and no good at all for pictures about the present world war When you see Man Hunt Walter Pidgeon's forthcoming film, and hear the blood hounds baying as the hero escapes from pursuing Nazi storm troopers remember that the perfect timing of the dogs' barks entirely to the credit of Director Fritz Lang ...
