DELEGATION URGES JEWISH
ADMISSION TO PALESTINE
Ai a meeting of the Executive
committee and Student Union
committee of the Florida Federa-
tion of B'nai B'rith Lodges held
Sunday at Orlando, and presided
over by Elry Stone, president.
Daytona Beach was selected as
the site of the State Annual Con-
vention to be held over Labor
Day week end. With about 50
representatives present the com-
mittee urged that all lodges in
the slate pay their per capita tax
so that the functions of the state
body could continue.
The meeting of the Student
Union committee was presided
over by Louis Heiman and com-
plete reports of Student Union
activities at Gainesville and Tal-
lahassee were rendered. It was
decided that the Florida Federa-
tion of B'nai B'rith Lodges set
up a budget of $5,000 for Student
Union activities and that a full
time rabbi for Tallahassee and
Gainesville be secured who would
also serve as the rabbi of their
respective community. It was
recommended that a sustaining
fund be created to which any
member of any B'nai B'rith
lodge could join at an annual
minimum fee of $10.00 or such
greater sum as he desired to con-
tribute annually, automatically
making such members a contri-
buting and advisory member of
the Student Union committee.
Funds raised to be used for these
activities.
A sub-committee to submit a
proposal to the District Grand
Lodge at its annual convention
will be named to ask for a mini-
mum of a $1,500 contribution
from the District Grand Lodge-
to financially assist the Student
Union activities in this state.
Mrs. Jennie Rotfort, president
<>f the Women's Auxiliary of the
Florida Federation, addressed the
group and appealed to all present
to form auxiliaries in their Ves-
pective lodges.
J- Aron Abbott of Miami,
served as secretary of the entire
conference.
Jerusalem (WNS) "With the
fall of Greece considered immin-
ent, a delegation of prominent
Greek Jews, headed by Chief
Rabbi Ben-Zion Usiel visited the
offices of the Palestine govern-
ment and appealed for permis-
sion for Jews escaping from
Greece to enter Palestine.
The- Association of Jewish
Students announced here that
many Jewish students left Pal-
estine recently to join the British
expeditionary forces in Greece
"to fight shoulder to shoulder
with their Greek comrades a-
gainsl the common enemy."
RUMANIA FREES 85 IRON
GUARDISTS OF POGROMS
Geneva (WNS) Eighty-five
"on Guard leaders, who were
found guilty of instigating the
recent anti-Jewish massacres in
Which more than 2.000 Jews were
k'Hed, have been released by
Mder of Premier Ion Antonescu,
M was learned here. The release
"f 'he Iron Guardists was ordered
after intervention by officials.
A military court had sentenced
Jhc violently anti-Semitic Iron
GuardlatS to long prison terms
a>ter finding them guilty of or-
ganizing the bloody pogroms.
. At the same time, the Ruman-
':'n Sovcrnment announced that
0.000 radios had been confiscated
""om Jews and distributed among
n<*dy Rumanians.
WANTS EXPULSION
Vichy (WNS)A program of
mass deportation of Jews from
France- was demanded by the
Vichy newspaper "Le Pays Reel"
in an editorial expressing dis-
atisfaction with the present anti-
Jewish regulations in effect in
unoccupied France.
The Vichy paper, organ of the
pro-Nazi clique which advocates
closer collaboration with Ger-
many, declared that Jews should
be given the opportunity to emi-
grate voluntarily. Those- who
fail to leave of their own accord,
the paper said. should be
deported.
Provisions should be made,
the- anti-Semitic paper continued,
to prevent the Jews returning
to France in the future. Similar
editorials in other French news-
papers confirmed tears expressed
in Jewish circles here that the
Vichy government was seriously
considering the Nazi-sponsored
plan to send all of Europe's Jews
to the French colony of Madagas-
car after the war.
Reports persist here that a se-
cret clause of the Franco-German
Armistice requires the French
government to allow Europe's
Jews to enter Madagascar.
In voicing its displeasure at
the present anti-Jewish laws, "Le
Pays Reel" charged that the anti-
Jewish regulations, announced
by the recently created Commis-
ariat for Jewish Affairs, were
nothing more than paper regu-
lations. The paper declared that
Jews remained in the professions
and commerce despite the anti-
Jewish curbs.
KING AND OUEEN VISIT IN
DAMAGED JEWISH SECTION
London (WNS)King George
md Queen Elizabeth visited the
badly damaged East End dis-
trict of London immediately af-
ter the fierce Nazi air raid on
London, which took a heavy toll
of life and caused considerable
destruction in the Jewish quar-
ter.
The royal couple spoke with
many Jews who were made
homeless by the air raid. They
visited the hopitals and comfort-
ed the victims.
ANNUAL MEETING
OP FEDERATION
NAZI AUTHORITIES ORDER
JEWS LEAVE BRATISLAVA
The annual meeting of contri-
butors of the Greater Miami Jew-
ish Federation was held on Tues-
day at the McAllister Hotel.
Stanley C. Myers, president,
and Day J. Aptt. vice-president,
presided during the meeting. Re-
ports of the president, treasurer,
and campaign chairman were
given.
Mr. Myers, serving his third
term as president, in his report
covered briefly the inception of

Isaac Joffe stated to the press,
"as Executive Director of Fed-
eration, I am not unmindful of
the hearty cooperation extend-
ed to me by the community
in my endeavor to direct the
administration of its Welfare
Funds. In taking leave of you
as your director, it is with a
feeling of personal pride and
satisfaction that I have had the
privilege of having a part in
creating the enthusiasm dis-
played in the community dur-
ing the 1941 campaignthe
most successful in the history
of Greater Miami.
"The number of genuine and
true friends I have acquired in
the short time I have lived
here, and the confidence ex-
pressed in me by my recent
election to the Board of Direc-
tors of Federation, has impelled
my decision to remain in Mi-
ami, and even though I shall
be engaged professionally in
a different field, my services.

ities in Slovakia have ordered all
Jews residing in Bratislava to
move to the outskirts of the city
since their presence in Bratis-
lava constitutes a "health haz-
ard." according to "Slovak." of-
ficial organ of the Nazi govern-
ment in that occupied country.
The Nazi newspaper reported
that investigators had discovered
that as many as 10 and 12 Jews
share one room in Bratislava. As
a precautionary measure against
epidemics, the paper explained,
it was found necessary to remove
the Jews from the heart of the
city.
HUNGARIAN HEAD
INVOKES THIRD
I
TO THE REPRESENTATIVES
OF THE ORGANIZATIONS
COOPERATING WITH
THE A. D. L.
A very important conference
of the representatives of the
cooperating organizations will
be held on Thursday evening.
May 8. at 8:15 p. m. in Kaplan
Hall, at Temple Israel. 137 N.
E. 19th Street. All members
are urgently requested to at-
tend this meeting.
Istanbul (WNS) Wholesale
arrests of Jews in Yugoslavia and
Greece followed the Nazi occupa-
tion of those countries, it was re-
ported here. Nazi troops entering
Salonika plundered shops in that
Greek city, destroying completely
a number of Jewish stores.
Nazi officials ordered Jews in
Salonika to appear at Nazi head-
quarters with all their jewels,
gold, silver and other valuables.
The Nazis issued a warning that
Jews who failed to report to the
headquarters voluntarily would
be shot.
While communications with
Yugoslavia and Nazi-occupied
territories of Greece were im-
mediately cut off, it was learned
that Heinrich Himmler, chief of
the Nazi secret police, arrived in
Zagred to confer with pro-Nazi
Croatian leaders.
Himmler's arrival in Zagreb
was proceeded by mass arrests
of Jews and others believed to
be pro-British. The introduction
of anti-Jewish laws throughout
fallen Yugoslavia was believed to
be imminent. Journalists arriv-
ing here from Yugoslavia report-
ed that the Nazis have already
compelled Jews to wear yellow
arm-bands on their street cloth-
ing.
Yugoslav Jews who had fled
before the advancing Nazi troops
to the Banat region occupied by
Hungary have been ordered to
register with the authorities. It
was understood that the Yugo-
lav Jews will be returned to
Nazi authorities.
CRACOW JEWS FORCED TO
ABANDON PART OF GOODS
Stockholm (WNS)Nazi offi-
cials in Cracow compelled Jews,
leaving their homes in Cracow in
order to move into the official
ghetto, to leave behind them one
third of their possessions, it was
reported here. The Nazi officials
explained that the new German
occupants of the Jewish homes
could not move into completely
bare apartments.
Jews and Poles are also for-
bidden to buy white bread and
1 wheat flour.
Budapest (WNS) Premier
Laszlo de Bardessy, appearing
before the Hungarian Parliament
for the first time since he took
office, announced the introduc-
tion of the "third anti-Jewish
law" and declared that the "Jew-
ish question" in Hungary would
be solved as part of the new
European order.
Although Bardessy, who suc-
ceeded the late Premier Paul
Teleki, did not go into a full
explanation of his statement it
was understood that the new
Premier had decided to accept
Adolf Hitler's solution of the
European Jewish oroblem.
Hitler has repeatedly declared
that all Jews in Europe would
be shipped to an unamed African
colony after an Axis victory in
the war. Pending the general
European solution to the Jewish
question, Bardessy told the Par-
liament, steps will have to be
taken to cope with the present
"Jewish situation in Hungary."
The third anti-Jewish decree,
the Premier said, would bar Jews
from the country's economic, so-
cial, religious and political activ-
ities. Two previous anti-Jewish
laws have already eliminated
Jews from Government posts,
the armed forces, and limited to
a small percentage the number
of Jews in professions, commerce
and arts.
Informed quarters here attri-
buted Bardessy's strong anti-
Jewish policies to the fact that
the fresh Nazi victories in the
Balkans had strengthened the
pro-Nazi elements in the country.
It was pointed out also that Hun-
gary would have to acquiesce to
Nazi policy in order to fulfill its
territorial ambitions.
Though the Premier made
clear that the new anti-Jewish
law would be applied stringently,
he reminded members of Parlia-
ment that a too hasty elimina-
tion of close to 1.000.000 Jews
from the national life of the
country might result in serious
economic and social difficulties.
JEWISH ARMY URGED BY
COMMANDER IN LONDON
London (WNS) Urging con-
certed action to win approval of
the Zionist plan to establish an
all-Jewish army, Commander
Oliver Locker-Lampson called for
the formation of coordinating
committee in London, the United
States and the Dominions.
Commander Locker Lampson
cabled to Dr. Chaim Weizmann,
president of the Jewish Agency
for Palestine, who is now in the
United States, and to Jose Mirel-
man. president of the New Zion-
ist Organization in Argentina,
stressing the need to establish
committee embracing Zionist and
other organizations for the pur-
pose of demanding action on the
proposed Jewish army project.

Commissioner R. C. Gardner,
seeking re-election in the May 6
primary city commission race,
has long been a resident of Mi-
ami. He has fought the special
interests, particularly the Florida
Power & Light Company's dom-
ination of Miami's political, civic
and economic life since their un-
holy birth in 1924. ,
He was associated with Former
Mayor E. G. Sewell, Abe Arono-
vitz. Robert Boone, M. F. Han-
nahs and others in the original
fight to lower electric rates in
Miami. He is interested in still
further lowering electric rates.
We pay a million dollars a year
too much now.
He has championed the fight of
Mr. Aronovitz in the present
campaign because he believes
Abe will cooperate with him in
this worthy cause.
A vote for R. C. Gardner is a
vote for a rial American. A pio-
neer American and a believer in
American ideals of free speech,
free assembly, freedom of -the
press and freedom of religious
worship.
His pledge to the people of
Miami in this race is worthy of
the best efforts of every true cit-
izen: "I will not compromise
with any form of wickedness, and
with your continued help we can
save our city and taxpayers mil-
lions of dollars that have gone to
special interests in the past."

nick, has been one of the active
workers in the Abe Aronovitz
campaign. He is appealing to
voters of Miami to support the
candidacy of Aronovitz and asks
that all voters take time off on
primary day to perform the duty
ol citizenship by casting their
ballots tor their choice of three
candidates best qualified for the
office of city commissioner. He
says: "I cannot employ words
enough to stress the importance
that every citizen of Miami must
recognize his obligation to the
community by participating in
our civic affairs. It just isn't
right that some people do not
show appreciation of this privi-
lege by neglecting to do so. I
would like to see everybody ex-
press his choice of best qualified
candidates to whom we may en-
trust the task of giving us good,
honest and efficient city govern-
ment."
Dr. Frank Coret. prominent
dentist and civic leader in the
Miami area, speaking on behalf
of Abe Aronovitz, candidate for
the city commission, says, "I feel
that every citizen should show
his appreciation for our demo-
cratic form of government by do-
ing his bit to help turn the

VOLUME 14 NUMBER 18
OF FEDERATION
NECESSARY EXPANSION
Rather heartening in the present gloom was the annual con-
tributors meeting of Federation held last week. Worth noting
at the outset, was the presence of practically all of the original
group who formed and nursed Federation into its present suc-
cessful status. Not true in most organizations where because
of petty bickerings and personal differences, individuals lose
enthusiasm and withdraw. Federation has retained all of its
original groups and gained many new supporters who have
pitched in and made its growth possible.
In the report of his stewardship, Stanley C. Myers, presi-
dent of Federation since its inception three years ago, cited
figures that speak for themselves. Prior to the first organized
campaign in this area, less than 400 contributors gave $35,000
to all Jewish causes and in the 1941 drive more than SI20,000
was raised with 2350 individuals contributing. This increase
has been realized with the cost held to a minimum average of
8o and though taking into consideration the growth of the
community, it can be termed remarkable progress.
Now has come the time Federation must expand and serve
the community not solely as a fund raising institution as it is
now but in other fields. Its setup today makes it the only or-
ganization here truly representative of organized Jewry, that
can serve as a planning body and coordinating group. As Fed-
eration has done much to eliminate overlapping in fund raising
it too can do much as a survey body, analyzing, in the words
of Mr. Meyers, the social service and welfare needs of our com-
munity and determining if they are being properly served.
Since finances are the life-blood of all endeavors and Fed-
eration holding the purse strings of'Miami Jewry, a better com-
bination could not be asked. Federation directors plan this
expansion. Full cooperation must be extended that our com-
munity may grow and its needs be served.

coverage of the participating or-
ganizations, starting at 23 and
this year including 41. He fur-
ther stated that it was worth
noting that these entire funds
were raised with an approximate
average cost of 8K. He gave
praise to the leadership, co-work-
ers, and committees of Federa-
tion and commended the budget
committee for their important
and outstanding work. He
thanked the Federation for the
privilege of being permitted to
serve them as their head for the
past three years.
He announced the resignation
of Isaac Joffe. who was selected
as executive director when the
office was created last year, and
who found it necessary to relin-
quish these duties to enter an-
other field of endeavor.
Accomplishments of the past
year included formulating of
plans under the direction of the
local Rabbinical Association, for
central system of education, and
the survey committee for the
purpose of analyzing the local
service and welfare needs of the
community.
Mr. Myers in his report ad-
vised the expansion of Federa-
tion from strictly a fund-raising
organization to include that of a
coordination and planning body
for the development of the or-
ganizations and their programs.
A talk on "Federations" by
William I. Boxerman, Florida re-
gional director of A. D. L. was

Rome (WNS) The dramatic
testimony of an "Aryan" woman
who told a crowded court-room
that a Jewish doctor saved her
son's life featured the trial of
i 15 noted Jewish physicians who
were accused of treating non-
Jewish patients in violation of
the Italian racial laws.
Eleven of the 15 Jewish doctors
were acquitted while the four
others received nominal fines
totaling 2.200 lire (about $110).
The Jewish doctors were de-
fended by prominent "Aryan"
attorneys who had volunteered
their services.
The law involved, announced
March 1, 1940, forbids Jewish
physicians to treat non-Jewish
patients except in emergency
cases. Exemptions were granted
only to Jews who had performed
"meritorious" services to the Ital-
ian government.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHINEAS J. BIRON)
HOME NEWS
At the opening meeting of the Women's Section of the Amer-
ican First Committee, held in Carnegie Hal. New York each
motion of President Roosevelt and Winston Church! was
hissed Among the speakers was Mrs. Robert Taft. and
when the lady said that the president is surrounded by people
who are working America into war a large section of the Ameri-
can Firsters yelled: "The Jews!" The meeting hall was
filled with Bundists and Coughlinites, and Father Coughhn s
"Social Justice" was very much in evidence ... Yet the papers
continue playing up "America First" as a genuine anti-war
movement Movie star Victor McLaglen wants it known that
his uniformed "Light Horse Cavalry Troop" is not an anti-Sem-
itic Fascist group, but simply an organization of menincluding
a considerable number of Jewswho are tyring to work ofi a
few pounds on horseback Charlie Chaplin should be very
happy to hear that the Nazis considered his "Great Dictator" so
successful a piece of lampooning that they are planning a sim-
ilar film, to be distributed in Latin America, panning FDR and
Churchill Oddly enough, the Nazis' special news service
for the South American countries is headed by a Hitler-follower
with the to us) highly non-Aryan-sounding name of Walter von
Simons .. Winchell says that Hitler's folks must have wagged
their tails when Adolf was born Get it?
LITERARY DEPARTMENT
Next week Pierre van Paassen's new book, "The Time is
Now," will be available at your favorite book store ... In it the
author of "Days of Our Years" takes Britain to task for having
played an anti-Jewish game in Palestine, and points out that
the appeasement policy toward the Arabs has proved a boom
erang ... A strong Jewish army in Palestine would have made
all the difference in the world not only in the battle for the Suez
Canal, but in the whole conduct of the war by Britain, says Van
Paasen ... A new form of literary collaboration is being devel-
oped by playwright Moss Hart and novelist Edna Ferber, they
say The two authors have been r.een together a lot of late,
and rumor has it that Miss Ferber is studying Hart to make
him the central figure of hei next book, and that Hart is studying
Miss Ferber to make her the heroine of his next play We
novel about a Hollywood executive, but we hear it's an excel-
lent picture of what goes on behind the soundproof doors of
ornate private offices in the film capital ... A book that's prom-
ised for the near future, incidentally, is a biography of Slapsie
Maxie Rosenbloom, boxer and movie actor Another biog-
raphy to appear shortly is that of Broadway restaurateur Bar-
ney Gallant, which will run serially in a national magazine .
And future biographers of Albert Einstein will be interested to
know that Dorothy Kilgallen's discovery that the daddy of rela-
tivity shaves himself in the bathtub, and without a mirror.
THE JEWISH FIELD
A committee has been organized to sponsor the publication
of the late Vladimir Jabotinsky's writings Jabotinsky's re-
markable literary gifts have been overshadowed in the public
mind by his colorful political life His literary output, how-
ever, contains a wealth of beautiful writingss that should be pre-
served for posterity Our congratulations to the Hebrew Uni-
versity at Jerusalem on attaining its fifteenth birthday, and on
the record-breaking number of its enrolled studentsover 1100
at last count.
ENTERTAINMENT NOTES
A new movie short featuring the predictions of Nostrada-
mus, the Jewish physician who 400 years ago foretold the course
of centuries to come, is being prepared by Hollywood ... Its
theme will be the eventual victory of democracy in this war
Twentieth Century-Fox, we understand, is about to start produc
tion on "Margin for Error," Claire Boothe's mystery comedy
about the murder of a Nazi consul Sam Levene will play
the Jewish cop who solves the mystery Note to Frederick
Stover, designer of the settings for that unique musical revue,
"Meet the People": It was thoughtful of you to place a Mogen
David instead of a cross over the grave of composer Offenbach
. I Most popular author and artist at Camp Dix are Jerry Siegel
and Joe Shuster Jerry and Joe, if you've forgotten, are the
creators of "Superman" of the funnies, and a recent survey
showed that the "Superman" strips and books constitute the
draftees' favorite reading matter One draftee who's too busy
to bother with "Superman." however' is playwright Sidney
Kingsley He's spending all his spare time working on a new
play, which he'll bring to Broadway when his year in the army
is up.
ABOUT PEOPLE
The most satisfactory answer to all those rumors about him
has been given by conductor Otto Klemperer. in the concert he
chrected at Carnegie Hall late last month Edward L. Bemays.
the public relations wizard, thinks that what this country needs
most is good public relations ... You know of Rose Franken, of
course, whose "Claudia" stories have now become one of
Broadway's big hits And you should know that in private
life Miss Franken is Mrs. William Brown Maloney (not the edi-
tor of This Week," but that lady's daughter-in-law) ... But
what we would like to know is whether Miss Franken is also
the Franken Maloney who is now blossoming out as a story
writer Here we've been thining that that good Jewish boy.

Summaries of Recent Books
and Articles
Through the courtesy of our
national headquarters, we pre-
sent the following summaries of
recent books and articles with j
which the well informed indi-
vidual should be acquainted.
Fivefold Aid to Britain." by
Fritz Steinberg. New York. John
C. Day Co.. 1941. 76 p. $1.00.
To those who would give Brit-
ain aid but sparingly. Mr. Stern-,
berg*s meaty little work will
come as a shock. He cites fig- 1
ures to pro\e that American aid
to Britain, to matter decisively,
should be more than equal to the .
entire British production of arms:
as of this spring.
"The German Churches' Di-
lemma" Bv Bernard Custon.
London. Fortnightly, pp 130-138.
February. 1941.
A one-time member of Pastor;
Niemoeller's congregation, the
author, an Englishman, details
the penalties meted out to con-
fessional pastors and Jesuit
priests. He quotes from Protest-
ant and Catholic writings in
Nazi Germany at length to re-
mind the world that the religious
reaction to barbarism has not
yet been exterminated in Hitler's
"new order."
"Fascism and the Church." By
Roland L. Warren. American So-
ciological Review, pp. 45-51. Feb-
ruary. 1941.
The church in America must
take a vigorous stand against
Fascism. Mr. Warren feels, em-
phasizing the growing struggle
between church and state as ex-
emplified by Fascist efforts to
control and regiment religious
teaching. It was necessary for
the church to compromise in part
to meet the threat of a sudden
Fascist victory, but American
churchmen yet have time to
erect spiritual barricades against
the totalitarians.
"Under the Iron Heel." By
Lars Moon, New York. J. B.
Lippincott Co.. 1941. 350 p. S2.75.
Life in Belgium after the Ger-
man occupation, as observed by
an American who left Antwerp
in late October. 1940. He pre-
sents a study of the food situa-
tion, the methods of German pen-
etration, the opposition to the
invaders, and the quality of Brit-
ish propaganda. In a chapter
headed "What a German Soldier
Thinks About." the author as-
serts that association with the
Belgians on the part of the occu-
pying forces has brought the
German soldiers an inkling of
what freedom and democracy
meana situation resented by
the Nazi bigwigs, who discour-
age friend lines between Belgian
and German.
"Axis-America: Hitler Plans
Our Future." By Strausz-Huoe.
New Work. R. Putnam's Sons.
1941. 274 p. S2.50

ment of America as quoted from

Members and Friends
Realizing that the desire f.>r
economic stability takes preced-
ence in our community during
the winter months, and further
realizing that many of us desire
cultural stimuli, we are propos-
ing:
(1) To form informal groups
during the summer months for
the purpose of discussing pertin-
ent subjects and problems.
(2) These groups to meet at
different homes and the discus-
sions to be led by the Rabbi and
capable lay leaders.
Will you please indicate your
willingness to study and partici-
pate, by checking the following
subjects which may have greater
appeal for you.
(1) Elementary Hebrew: A
course in presentation of the He-
brew language for those who
have never studied it.
(2) Conversational Hebrew:
For those who are able to read,
but desire to further their know-
ledge of the Hebrew languap<
from a conversational and gram-
matical approach.
(3) The Hebraic Civilization:
A course confined to a study i :
the sum total of contributions
by Hebrew people.
(4) Bible: A course in actual
text of the Bible with Midrashk-
interpretations.
(5) Religion: A study of com-
parative religions in the light of
Hebraic approach.
(6) Dogma, Creed and Cer -
mony: An analysis of various
observances in the Hebraic faith.
We honestly hope that you will
give careful study to the above,
and designate your undeviating
interest in one or more of the
subjects to be presented. If this
program of activity is to be car-
ried out we must require your
immediate answer.

*Jenist fluridian
By MILTON FRIEDMAN
The surprise smoker has come
and gone and with it fond (.)
memories. My only recollection
is Chairman Al Mcehlowitz tell-
ing me. just as I walked into
Mahi Temple, that he needed
hot dogs and 12 dozen hot dog
buns. Did you ever try to secure
12 dozen hot dog buns at 10 P.
M ? Trv it some time it you
want to lose weight. No doubt
vou have gathered that a big
crowd must have been present
and in a nungry mood. Brother
Al is to be commended for put-
ting on such a nice affair on
comparatively very short notice.
The hundreds who came en-
joyed dancing, bingo and re-
freshments. To date I under-
stand that about S135 was netted
to be applied toward delegates
traveling expenses. Others as-
sisting Al and deserving credit
are Miss Millicent Roth, our
hard working secretary; Wm.
Friedman. Rudy Adler and S. B.
Miller.
Just received a letter from an
old friend, Brother Hyman Ja-
cobs of Atlanta. Anyone famil-
I iar with Bnai B'rith in the state
of Florida knows the part Bro.
: Hyman had in its growth. He is
1 practically an adopted member
I of Sholcm Lodge. He has been
District President and treasurer
and at present is district mem-
bershio chairman. It made me
feel very happy to read the fol-
lowing 'in his letter: "Enjoy
reading vour weekly column in
The Flondian; it is the first ar-
ticle I read when I receive the
paper Your marvelous support
of the A. Z. A. is highly appreci-
ated by all of us who are inter-
ested in this kind of work. I am
' looking forward to the pleasure
of seeing you in Washington. It
will give me the opportunity to
' talk of the old days when we
barnstormed in Florida." Thanks
Hyman for "them thar kind
words." ..
At the last meeting of the
Lodge Brother Ike ^.evin gave a
brief report about the triennial
convention of B'nai B'rith in Chi-
cago which he attended in his ca-
capity as president of this dis-
trict He stated that the high-
lights of the convention were:
The decision to purchase more
trees in Pakstine. including $100.-
000 colony in honor of Pres.
Monsky; a scholarship award in
the name of Ben Frankel. the
first head of Hillel; a $500 annual
scholarship in memory of Grover
Cleveland Hall of Alabama, who
helped to eradicate the K. K. K.:
an appropriation sufficient to
send a rabbi to the Mayo Clinic
as a spiritual advisor there: an
address bv Chaim Weizman: the
mass initiation of 6.000 new
members at the Chicago Opera
House: an address by the vice
president of the United States.
Henry Wallace, who. incidental-
ly, spent some time at the A. D.
L office: support of a Nautical
School in Haifa (imagine a school
for Jewisii sailors); the reelec-
tion of President Henry Monsky
for another three year term; the
announcement of 55 Hillel foun-
dations taking care of 40.000 stu-
dents; and finally, the establish-
ment bv 1343 of a Foundation of
$1,000,000 to do Bnai B'rith

MAY 2. 1941 PRICE 10 CENTS MM BEACH IS SELECTED LOCALE DELEGATION URGES JEWISH ADMISSION TO PALESTINE Ai a meeting of the Executive committee and Student Union committee of the Florida Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges held Sunday at Orlando, and presided over by Elry Stone, president. Daytona Beach was selected as the site of the State Annual Convention to be held over Labor Day week end. With about 50 representatives present the committee urged that all lodges in the slate pay their per capita tax so that the functions of the state body could continue. The meeting of the Student Union committee was presided over by Louis Heiman and complete reports of Student Union activities at Gainesville and Tallahassee were rendered. It was decided that the Florida Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges set up a budget of $5,000 for Student Union activities and that a full time rabbi for Tallahassee and Gainesville be secured who would also serve as the rabbi of their respective community. It was recommended that a sustaining fund be created to which any member of any B'nai B'rith lodge could join at an annual minimum fee of $10.00 or such greater sum as he desired to contribute annually, automatically making such members a contributing and advisory member of the Student Union committee. Funds raised to be used for these activities. A sub-committee to submit a proposal to the District Grand Lodge at its annual convention will be named to ask for a minimum of a $1,500 contribution from the District Grand Lodgeto financially assist the Student Union activities in this state. Mrs. Jennie Rotfort, president <>f the Women's Auxiliary of the Florida Federation, addressed the group and appealed to all present to form auxiliaries in their Vespective lodges. JAron Abbott of Miami, served as secretary of the entire conference. Jerusalem (WNS) — "With the fall of Greece considered imminent, a delegation of prominent Greek Jews, headed by Chief Rabbi Ben-Zion Usiel visited the offices of the Palestine government and appealed for permission for Jews escaping from Greece to enter Palestine. TheAssociation of Jewish Students announced here that many Jewish students left Palestine recently to join the British expeditionary forces in Greece "to fight shoulder to shoulder with their Greek comrades againsl the common enemy."

WANTS EXPULSION Vichy (WNS)—A program of mass deportation of Jews from Francewas demanded by the Vichy newspaper "Le Pays Reel" in an editorial expressing disatisfaction with the present antiJewish regulations in effect in unoccupied France. The Vichy paper, organ of the pro-Nazi clique which advocates closer collaboration with Germany, declared that Jews should be given the opportunity to emigrate voluntarily. Thosewho fail to leave of their own accord, the paper said. should be deported. Provisions should be made, theanti-Semitic paper continued, to prevent the Jews returning to France in the future. Similar editorials in other French newspapers confirmed tears expressed in Jewish circles here that the Vichy government was seriously considering the Nazi-sponsored plan to send all of Europe's Jews to the French colony of Madagascar after the war. Reports persist here that a secret clause of the Franco-German Armistice requires the French government to allow Europe's Jews to enter Madagascar. In voicing its displeasure at the present anti-Jewish laws, "Le Pays Reel" charged that the antiJewish regulations, announced by the recently created Commisariat for Jewish Affairs, were nothing more than paper regulations. The paper declared that Jews remained in the professions and commerce despite the antiJewish curbs. KING AND OUEEN VISIT IN DAMAGED JEWISH SECTION London (WNS)—King George md Queen Elizabeth visited the badly damaged East End district of London immediately after the fierce Nazi air raid on London, which took a heavy toll of life and caused considerable destruction in the Jewish quarter.

He "In offering my resignation." Isaac Joffe stated to the press, "as Executive Director of Federation, I am not unmindful of the hearty cooperation extended to me by the community in my endeavor to direct the administration of its Welfare Funds. In taking leave of you as your director, it is with a feeling of personal pride and satisfaction that I have had the privilege of having a part in creating the enthusiasm displayed in the community during the 1941 campaign—the most successful in the history of Greater Miami. "The number of genuine and true friends I have acquired in the short time I have lived here, and the confidence expressed in me by my recent election to the Board of Directors of Federation, has impelled my decision to remain in Miami, and even though I shall be engaged professionally in a different field, my services.

HUNGARIAN HEAD INVOKES THIRD I TO THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE ORGANIZATIONS COOPERATING WITH THE A. D. L. A very important conference of the representatives of the cooperating organizations will be held on Thursday evening. May 8. at 8:15 p. m. in Kaplan Hall, at Temple Israel. 137 N. E. 19th Street. All members are urgently requested to attend this meeting. Istanbul (WNS)— Wholesale arrests of Jews in Yugoslavia and Greece followed the Nazi occupation of those countries, it was reported here. Nazi troops entering Salonika plundered shops in that Greek city, destroying completely a number of Jewish stores. Nazi officials ordered Jews in Salonika to appear at Nazi headquarters with all their jewels, gold, silver and other valuables. The Nazis issued a warning that Jews who failed to report to the headquarters voluntarily would be shot. While communications with Yugoslavia and Nazi-occupied territories of Greece were immediately cut off, it was learned that Heinrich Himmler, chief of the Nazi secret police, arrived in Zagred to confer with pro-Nazi Croatian leaders. Himmler's arrival in Zagreb was proceeded by mass arrests of Jews and others believed to be pro-British. The introduction of anti-Jewish laws throughout fallen Yugoslavia was believed to be imminent. Journalists arriving here from Yugoslavia reported that the Nazis have already compelled Jews to wear yellow arm-bands on their street clothing. Yugoslav Jews who had fled before the advancing Nazi troops to the Banat region occupied by Hungary have been ordered to register with the authorities. It was understood that the Yugolav Jews will be returned to Nazi authorities. CRACOW JEWS FORCED TO ABANDON PART OF GOODS Stockholm (WNS)—Nazi officials in Cracow compelled Jews, leaving their homes in Cracow in order to move into the official ghetto, to leave behind them one third of their possessions, it was reported here. The Nazi officials explained that the new German occupants of the Jewish homes could not move into completely bare apartments. Jews and Poles are also forbidden to buy white bread and 1 wheat flour. Budapest (WNS)— Premier Laszlo de Bardessy, appearing before the Hungarian Parliament for the first time since he took office, announced the introduction of the "third anti-Jewish law" and declared that the "Jewish question" in Hungary would be solved as part of the new European order. Although Bardessy, who succeeded the late Premier Paul Teleki, did not go into a full explanation of his statement it was understood that the new Premier had decided to accept Adolf Hitler's solution of the European Jewish oroblem. Hitler has repeatedly declared that all Jews in Europe would be shipped to an unamed African colony after an Axis victory in the war. Pending the general European solution to the Jewish question, Bardessy told the Parliament, steps will have to be taken to cope with the present "Jewish situation in Hungary." The third anti-Jewish decree, the Premier said, would bar Jews from the country's economic, social, religious and political activities. Two previous anti-Jewish laws have already eliminated Jews from Government posts, the armed forces, and limited to a small percentage the number of Jews in professions, commerce and arts. Informed quarters here attributed Bardessy's strong antiJewish policies to the fact that the fresh Nazi victories in the Balkans had strengthened the pro-Nazi elements in the country. It was pointed out also that Hungary would have to acquiesce to Nazi policy in order to fulfill its territorial ambitions. Though the Premier made clear that the new anti-Jewish law would be applied stringently, he reminded members of Parliament that a too hasty elimination of close to 1.000.000 Jews from the national life of the country might result in serious economic and social difficulties. JEWISH ARMY URGED BY COMMANDER IN LONDON London (WNS) — Urging concerted action to win approval of the Zionist plan to establish an all-Jewish army, • Commander Oliver Locker-Lampson called for the formation of coordinating committee in London, the United States and the Dominions. Commander Locker Lampson cabled to Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, who is now in the United States, and to Jose Mirelman. president of the New Zionist Organization in Argentina, stressing the need to establish committee embracing Zionist and other organizations for the purpose of demanding action on the proposed Jewish army project. •I I •J i m

Gardner, seeking re-election in the May 6 primary city commission race, has long been a resident of Miami. He has fought the special interests, particularly the Florida Power & Light Company's domination of Miami's political, civic and economic life since their unholy birth in 1924. He was associated with Former Mayor E. G. Sewell, Abe Aronovitz. Robert Boone, M. F. Hannahs and others in the original fight to lower electric rates in Miami. He is interested in still further lowering electric rates. We pay a million dollars a year too much now. He has championed the fight of Mr. Aronovitz in the present campaign because he believes Abe will cooperate with him in this worthy cause. A vote for R. C. Gardner is a vote for a rial American. A pioneer American and a believer in American ideals of free speech, free assembly, freedom of -the press and freedom of religious worship. His pledge to the people of Miami in this race is worthy of the best efforts of every true citizen: "I will not compromise with any form of wickedness, and with your continued help we can save our city and taxpayers millions of dollars that have gone to special interests in the past."

PAGE EIGHT Jenist fluridian By MILTON FRIEDMAN The surprise smoker has come and gone and with it fond (.) memories. My only recollection is Chairman Al Mcehlowitz telling me. just as I walked into Mahi Temple, that he needed hot dogs and 12 dozen hot dog buns. Did you ever try to secure 12 dozen hot dog buns at 10 P. M ? Trv it some time it you want to lose weight. No doubt vou have gathered that a big crowd must have been present and in a nungry mood. Brother Al is to be commended for putting on such a nice affair on comparatively very short notice. The hundreds who came enjoyed dancing, bingo and refreshments. To date I understand that about S135 was netted to be applied toward delegates traveling expenses. Others assisting Al and deserving credit are Miss Millicent Roth, our hard working secretary; Wm. Friedman. Rudy Adler and S. B. Miller. Just received a letter from an old friend, Brother Hyman Jacobs of Atlanta. Anyone familI iar with Bnai B'rith in the state of Florida knows the part Bro. : Hyman had in its growth. He is 1 practically an adopted member I of Sholcm Lodge. He has been District President and treasurer and at present is district membershio chairman. It made me feel very happy to read the following 'in his letter: "Enjoy reading vour weekly column in The Flondian; it is the first article I read when I receive the paper Your marvelous support of the A. Z. A. is highly appreciated by all of us who are interested in this kind of work. I am looking forward to the pleasure %  of seeing you in Washington. It will give me the opportunity to talk of the old days when we barnstormed in Florida." Thanks Hyman for "them thar kind words." .. At the last meeting of the Lodge Brother Ike ^.evin gave a brief report about the triennial convention of B'nai B'rith in Chicago which he attended in his cacapity as president of this district He stated that the highlights of the convention were: The decision to purchase more trees in Pakstine. including $100.000 colony in honor of Pres. Monsky; a scholarship award in the name of Ben Frankel. the first head of Hillel; a $500 annual scholarship in memory of Grover Cleveland Hall of Alabama, who helped to eradicate the K. K. K.: an appropriation sufficient to send a rabbi to the Mayo Clinic as a spiritual advisor there: an address bv Chaim Weizman: the mass initiation of 6.000 new members at the Chicago Opera House: an address by the vice president of the United States. Henry Wallace, who. incidentally, spent some time at the A. D. L office: support of a Nautical School in Haifa (imagine a school for Jewisii sailors); the reelection of President Henry Monsky for another three year term; the announcement of 55 Hillel foundations taking care of 40.000 students; and finally, the establishment bv 1343 of a Foundation of $1,000,000 to do Bnai B'rith ABE ARONOVITZ FOR CITY COMMISSIONER HONEST • FEARLESS • INDEPENDENT A Candidate for Public Office Should Be Judged by His Record in the Past City Government for the People Instead of For Special Interests MY PLEDGE TO THE PEOPLE OF MIAMI I will join with Commissioner R. C. Gardner in his fight agains the reckless waste of the people's money at City Hall. I will take steps immediately after my election to REPEAL THE GARBAGE TAX. I will move for the REPEAL OF THE CITY DRIVERS LICENSE. I will support measures to correct the friction in our police department. I will start a movement at once to bring to Miami industries of suitable character. I will see to it that the Miami Transit renders a FULL. ADEQUATE AND COMPLETE BUS SERVICE as they are obligated to do under their franchise. Pa..i Potitfet Atwork, 1943 marking the 100th Anniversary of the estabhshmen of B'nai B'rith. With all of the ftove taking Place no wonder Brother Ike was thrilled with being present. I can well imagine it being a never to be forgotten trip. ,. Speaking of trips, definite plans have now been made for our exodus from Miami to the district convention in Washington The convention will marK the' end of Brother Ike's reign as president of the district, and wil also mark the 50th anniversary of Argo Lodge, of Washington. The trip will be made via Seaboard on the Silver Meteor. The train leaves Miami Saturday mornins. May 10th at 10:20 and j arrivess" in Washington at <:30' Sunday morning. May 11th. Registration begins on Sunday at a A M. and the first meeting will start at 10:00 o'clock. Reservations have been made at the convention hotel. The Willard at rates of $3.50 single and S6.00 double per night. The registration fee is $3.50. Transportation is at the rate of $29.50 per person round trip. The delegation will leave on Tuesday. May 13th at 6:30 P. M. and arrive in Miami Wednesday at 2:35 P. M. Tickets for the trip must be purchased prior to May 5th so it is imperative that all those planning to go up send their checks S19.50 to Jack Abbott. 845 Ingraham Building, immediately and an additional $29.50 if friend wife is being taken along. The reason for the $19.50 for the brothers is that the Lodge is giving each delegate and alternate a cerdit of $10.00 toward his traveling expenses. It is hoped that the district will allocate to each Miami deleeate and alternate around $10.00 additionally. Next week I'll set forth in this column the entire program for the convention. It reads like a swell affair is in store for all those who attend. Those who have attended previous district conventions know what to expect and I know are looking forward to the trip. Send in your check by return mail to cover your railroad fare Decause May 5th is the deadline. FRIDAY. MAY 2, 1S41 WARBURG ASKED NOT TO SPEAK BECAUSE OF FAITH New York (WNS)—James P.

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 • • $200 SIX MONT HS $ 1J0 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, MAY 2, 1941 VOLUME 14 NUMBER 18 OF FEDERATION NECESSARY EXPANSION Rather heartening in the present gloom was the annual contributors meeting of Federation held last week. Worth noting at the outset, was the presence of practically all of the original group who formed and nursed Federation into its present successful status. Not true in most organizations where because of petty bickerings and personal differences, individuals lose enthusiasm and withdraw. Federation has retained all of its original groups and gained many new supporters who have pitched in and made its growth possible. In the report of his stewardship, Stanley C. Myers, president of Federation since its inception three years ago, cited figures that speak for themselves. Prior to the first organized campaign in this area, less than 400 contributors gave $35,000 to all Jewish causes and in the 1941 drive more than SI20,000 was raised with 2350 individuals contributing. This increase has been realized with the cost held to a minimum average of 8o and though taking into consideration the growth of the community, it can be termed remarkable progress. Now has come the time Federation must expand and serve the community not solely as a fund raising institution as it is now but in other fields. Its setup today makes it the only organization here truly representative of organized Jewry, that can serve as a planning body and coordinating group. As Federation has done much to eliminate overlapping in fund raising it too can do much as a survey body, analyzing, in the words of Mr. Meyers, the social service and welfare needs of our community and determining if they are being properly served. Since finances are the life-blood of all endeavors and Federation holding the purse strings of'Miami Jewry, a better combination could not be asked. Federation directors plan this expansion. Full cooperation must be extended that our community may grow and its needs be served.

(CONTINUED FROM PAGt 1) coverage of the participating organizations, starting at 23 and this year including 41. He further stated that it was worth noting that these entire funds were raised with an approximate average cost of 8K. He gave praise to the leadership, co-workers, and committees of Federation and commended the budget committee for their important and outstanding work. He thanked the Federation for the privilege of being permitted to serve them as their head for the past three years. He announced the resignation of Isaac Joffe. who was selected as executive director when the office was created last year, and who found it necessary to relinquish these duties to enter another field of endeavor. Accomplishments of the past year included formulating of plans under the direction of the local Rabbinical Association, for central system of education, and the survey committee for the purpose of analyzing the local service and welfare needs of the community. Mr. Myers in his report advised the expansion of Federation from strictly a fund-raising organization to include that of a coordination and planning body for the development of the organizations and their programs. A talk on "Federations" by William I. Boxerman, Florida regional director of A. D. L. was delivered. Election of directors for the ensuing year was held and the following were elected: J.

Rome (WNS) — The dramatic testimony of an "Aryan" woman who told a crowded court-room that a Jewish doctor saved her son's life featured the trial of i 15 noted Jewish physicians who were accused of treating nonJewish patients in violation of the Italian racial laws. Eleven of the 15 Jewish doctors were acquitted while the four others received nominal fines totaling 2.200 lire (about $110). The Jewish doctors were defended by prominent "Aryan" attorneys who had volunteered their services. The law involved, announced March 1, 1940, forbids Jewish physicians to treat non-Jewish patients except in emergency cases.
