Someone I love comes back to me
With every gentle face I see:
Beneath each wave of soft, gray hair
I seem to see my mother there.
With every kindly grace and word
It seems as if I must have heard
Her speak, and felt her tender gaze
With all the love of olden days.
And I am moved to take her hand
And tell her now I understand
How tired she grew beneath the strain
Of feeling every loved one's pain.
No further burdens could she bear;
The promise of that land more fair
Alone could tempt her from her chair;
And now. if I could keep her here.
No sacrifice would be too dear.
No tempered winds for her too mild.
Then I would smooth and kiss her face.
And by her side take my old place.
And sob my fears and cares away.
The tears I have so long repressed
Would lose their ache upon her breast.
I think if I could feel her touch
Once more, it would not matter much
How sunny or how dark the day.

popular collections for the Jew-
ish people's fund to acquire land

victory, freedom and national
renaissance grow." This will be
the 28th annual observance of its
kind arranged each spring as an
occassion to rally mass support

Friends and supporters of Abe
Aronovitz. candidate for city
commision in Miami, are urging
every registered voter to cast
his ballot on election dav. next
Tuesday-, May 13th.
In the primaries last Tuesday.
Abe Aronovitz received the third
position in the selection of the
six candidates who are to run
in the finals. Those three can-
didates who will receive the
highest number of votes next
Tuesday will take office as the
incoming city commissioners.

says. "We are all very happy to
see Abe capture third position in
the primaries. It is proof that
the people of Miami want him
to represent us at city hall. Now
more than ever will certain in-
terests turn heaven and earth
seeking his defeat, therefore, it
is important that his supporters
and well-wishers return to the
polls next Tuesday to help keep
him among the top three can-
didates. While we are confident
that Abe will poll even a greater
vote than in the primaries. I wish
to point out that if he doesn't
get the full support of all his
friends, there may be a possibil-
ity that one of the candidates
now in fourth, fifth or sixth
place may gather enough votes
to squeeze Abe out in the finals.
Therefore. I appeal to all of you
to go to the polls next Tuesday,
particularly those of you who
failed to uarticipato in the pri-
maries. Let us all get behind
Aronovitz and elect him as one
of our city commissioners."

tempted Axis invasion of Pales-

ages of 20 and 30. were drafted

sued jointly by the executive
committees of the Jewish Agency
for Palestine and the Jewish Na-
tional Council (Vaad Leumi). Ad-
ministrative machinery for hand-
ling the new soldiers and con-
sidering applications for exemp-
tions from the blanket order was
immediately set up.
Palestine Jewish leaders indi-
cated that a Nazi-Italian drive
towards the Suez through Pal-
estine and Syria would meet with
bitter resistance in the Holv

thusiastic response, thousands of
young Jews crowded the recruit-

It was generally agreed here
that the all-important battle for
the Near East was officially start-
ed when the pro-Nazi Iraq gov-
ernment of Premier Rashid Ali
Beg Gailani ordered Iraq troops
to fire on British detachments
stationed in that country.
Jewish leaders followed the
fighting in Iraq with keen inter-
est in view of reports that the
Iraq Premier had appealed to
Berlin for military assistance.
The Nazi High Command, it was
feared, may capitalize on the
Iraq situation to launch its cam-
paign in the Near East.

experience has been that the
hours set forth in a tentative con-

be so long that the delegates will
have to miss the sightseeing triD.

one of the finest cities m the
