A scurrilous underhanded technique was employed this
week in the Miami city elections to aid in defeating a candi-
date tor the city commission who happened to be of the Jewish
taith. and to create the impression that the Jewish voters of
Miami cast their ballots not as American citizens, but as an
organized political group on the basis of reliqion.
An individual or individuals mailed letters to all Miami
residents who have distinctly Jewish names (and as an added
embellishment also slipped a number of copies covertly under
the office doors of non-Jewish firms( urging the defeat of this
candidate on the spurious ground that "it is better that one
man's ambitions be shattered than that a whole Jewish com-
munity be hurt in times like these." Fearful lest they be con-
demned for their cheap political chicanery, those who addressed
these sheets "to the JEWISH voter" concealed their identity un-
der the name of a non-existent "COMMITTEE TO PROTECT
THE JEWISH NAME." Furthermore, their letters contained the
implied threat that the whole Jewish community would pay
the penalty if the Jewish candidate were elected.
The circulation of such communications cloaked in anony-
mity is a reprehensible act and proper steps are being taken to
trace their authorship. The Anti-Defamation League is not a
political organization and we are not concerned with the mer-
its of the Jewish candidate in question, although we are con-
fident that had he been elected, he would have served his
fellow-American citizens honorably and well. We are gravely
concerned, however, with the implication that the Jewish com-
munity as such controls a "Jewish vote." through which it can
elect a Jewish candidate, and that therefore it can be held ac-
countable for the acts of every office-holder of the Jewish faith.
Let it be stated as a matter of public record, notwithstand-
ing the misrepresentations of such political tricksters as those
who distributed these letters, that it is a flagrant falsehood to
indicate that Jews vote as a religious bloc. There is no such
thing as a "Jewish vote" that can be swung to this candidate
or that. As Congressman Bruce Barton (a non-Jew) said in
the last presidential campaign:
"Jews are Americans and divide on every political and so-
cial question like their fellow American citizens. That divis-
ion applies both to prominent Jewish citizens and to ordinary
Jewish citisens. The right of franchise is exercised by them
free from any consideration of class or group distinction. The
plain fact is that when Jews walk into the voting booths, they
walk in not as members of a religious faith but as American
citisens."

Lisbon (WNS)Rumanian po-
lice, accompanied by Nazi Gesta-
po agents, swooped down on the
Jewish quarter of Bucharest and
other large cities and arrested
thousands of Jews on the charge
that they were Communist
agents, it was reported here A
number of the arrested Jews,
known to be outspoken anti-
Communists, were accused of be-
ing British saboteurs.
The sudden raids were the first
large-scale arrests of Jews in Ru-
mania since the organized Iron
Guard massacres several months
ago when more than 2.000 Jews
were killed. Lists of Jews seized
in the raids were unobtainable.
Meanwhile, the Rumanian gov-
ernment announced that homes
confiscated recently from Jews
will be used to house non-Jewish
Rumanians returning from terri-
tories ceded to Hungary and Sov-
iet Russia.
At the same time it was learned
that Rumania is negotiating with
Soviet Russia for repatriation to ,
Soviet-occupied Bessarabia of ap-
proximately 14,000 Besaarabian-
born Jews now residing in Ru-
mania. The negotiations have
been deadlocked by Rumania s
insistence that the Jews leave all
their possessions and funds be-
hind.

believed here to be the forerun-

; in construction to that of the
Warsaw ghetto.

POLITICAL BRIEFS
First elected to the City Council
of Miami Beach in 1930, Baron
dc Hirsch Meyer was re-elected
in 1932 by a large majority and
js now again seeking re-election.
Born in Wisconsin, he graduated
from the University of Wisconsin
and at Harvard. Besides his par-
ticipation in general communal
activities, he has been actively
identitiod with the Zionist move-
ment, n as president of the He-
Baron de Hirsch Meyer
brew Friendly Inn when it func-
tioned locally, was secretary and
director of the Jewish Welfare
Bureau, and helped establish the
Baron de Hirsch Free Loan Fund
of the Jewish Welfare Bureau
8 years ago by the gift of one
thousand dollars. He has risen
high in the legal profession since
his arrival here in 1925 and has
attained an unusually fine repu-
tation for his work with the City
Council of Miami Beach during
his service as city councilman.
His host of friends urge his re-
election to office,not merely as
a reward for faithful service,
but because of Mr. Meyer's grasp
of municipal affairs and his abil-
ity to help solve the city's prob-
lems.
John Levi, president of the
City Council of Miami Beach
lor the past 20 years, is again a
candidate for election to the City
Council of Miami Beach. Coming
to Miami Beach in 1912. he was
one of the first men to realize
the possibilities of this area and
John Levi
began the work which resulted
in the present city. He was gen-
eral manager of the first company
to pump mud from the bay to
develop the present City of Mi-
ami Beach and helped build the
first large estate here, the Fire-
stone estate. Mr. Levi has been
elected time and again to the
City Council becaue of his un-
questioned ability, his unswerv-
ing honesty and because of a
| knowledge of municipal affairs
j that ranks him among the best
i on municipal matters. His many
I friends urge his re-election on
i his record of unselfish devotion
; to the city's interests.
| the Junior Chamber of Com-
merce, Bussinessman's Association
and the Senior Chamber of Com-
merce. Pointing to the fact, that
I he is "'one of the people" Mr.
i Frink, in announcing his candid-
acy, said "I believe only a busi-
j nessman who has made a success
jof his own business should be a
| member of the City Council,
[which in reality is a group of men
j running a fifty million dollar
j corporation. I am in favor of
civil service and have always
given the other fellow more than
an even break and I will continue
to do 80." He has been active in
numerous civic and philanthropic
. endeavors during his residence
i at Miami Beach and his place of
; business has been a haven of the
needy and hungry for a long
time He is recognized as liberal,
' able, and possessing sound busi-
i ness principle and judgement
necesary for the proper admini-
tration of the affairs of the City
I of Miami Beach as shown by his
' record of his past term.
all of my life, I know the prob-
lems and difficulties which have
arisen with the growth of Miami
Beach; the tempo of the times, the
people and their requirements.
I have had a considerable
amount of activity in civic mat-
ters as well as a long business ex-
perience, and I feel absolutely
qualified to look after the inter-
ests of the people, both the prop-
erty owners, and those who are
not.
As to my background: I am a
native Floridian. I have lived
in Greater Miami since 1905.
During the World War I was in
the United States Navy. I am
past president of the Miami Beach
Realty Board, a member of the
Miami Beach Post, American
Lemon and a member of Biscayne
Lodge. F. & A. M. I have been
in the real estate business for
twenty two years.
A great majority of the Miami

NUMBER 20
THE ANTI SEMITIC STORM INCREASES
The occupied peat of France is officially still a section of
France. The law-makers there, however, are the Nazis. The
Nazi military administration in Paris, like that of the other Nazi-
occupied countries, is determined to annihilate the Jews and
is carrying out its determination in even a stricter manner than
in Nazi-held Poland.
The latest order of the Nazi military authorities in Paris com-
bines the introduction in occupied France of the Nuremberg
Laws with the complete segregation of the Jews from non-Jews
in daily life. Jews in Franceand a 'lew" is defined as any
person with three Jewish grandparentsare no longer permitted
:o engage in retail and wholesale trading, cannot maintain
restaurants and hotels, are forbidden to do any kind of work that
can bring them in touch with non-Jews. Jewish employees who
%vill inevitably be dismissed under this new policy, are not en-
titled to any compensation. Imprisonment and confiscation of
properly awaits any Jew who will be accused of violating this
new order.
Similar reports of Nazi ruthlessness are now beginning to
reach America from Nazi-occupied Bulgaria, Yugoslavia and
Greece. The first measures taken by the Nazi invaders there
was to loot all Jewish shops, to introduce yellow arm-bands for
the Jewish population and to organize Jewish men into units
fcr forced labor. Wherever the Nazis enter, their first action is
directed against the Jews to annihilate them economically and
physically. The worst part of it is that the world is now practi-
cally closed to the Jews suffering from the Nazis in Europe.
There is no escape for these unfortunates until and unless Hitler
is defeated. Some four million Jews on the Nazi-enslaved
European continent cue now left to the mercy of the Nazis, and
nothing but emigration to the wide spaces of Canada, Australia,
New Zealand, Brazil and other American countries can save
them.

the House of Representatives, and
Dr HaiTy Byrd. president of the
' University of Maryland.
Speaker Rayburn. who spoke
off the record on the world crisis,
said he had been offered a radio
hookup but had declined in view
of the forthcoming major pro-
nouncement on foreign affairs
by President Roosevelt.
Mr. Monsky said "when we
speak of discipline and self-re-
straint, we have in mind that
EYES ON PALESTINE
The eyes of the worldnot only of the Jewsare now turned
towards Palestine and Syria. The Nazis are trying to coerce the
Vichy government into permitting Nazi troops to land in Syria
for the purpose of striking at the Suez Canal, via Syria and
Palestine. The French government, which still holds the man-
date over Syria, claims that it does not intend to open Syria to
German troops. But at the same time, it is reported that the
French High Commissioner for Syria has reached an under-
standing with the Arabs there recognizing their claim to in-
dependence.
That the Nazis have infested Syria with hundreds of Arab
propagandists whom they trained in Berlin is a well-established
fact. Pro-Nazi sentiments in Syria cue being stimulated by
various Arab clubs financed from Berlin. If Arabs in Syria cue
left to decide whether Nazi troops should be admitted, the dan-
ger exists that their decision may be of a kind from which the
Nazis will benefit. And Syria is. after all, the threshold of
Palestine.
This brings up again the question of the establishment of a
Jewish Army to defend Palestine. The Jewish Agency is now
conducting the recruitment of the able-bodied Jewish population
in Palestine, but what about arming the recruits? What about
giving them the proper military training? What about consider-
ing them officially a part of the British military forces in the Near
East?
Though praise is given constantly by the British military
command to the 8,000 Jews who are serving on the Egyptian
and Libyan fronts, the British government is still hesitating to
permit formation of a Jewish army in Palestine. Such an army
would enforce the British military in the Near East with tens
of thousands of Jewish soldiers and officers willing to give
their lives in the fight against the Axis invasion into the Near
East. Is it not high time for the British to assume a sober at-
titude with regard to the demand for the formation of a Jewish
army?

careless utterances are always
dangerous, but they arc espe-
cially so when the instruments of
propaganda operated by the ene-
mies of our present-day civiliza-

word to damn us and to make
our way harder."
He emphasized that "the price
of freedom is sacrificesacrifice
on the part of all of us, sacri-
fice on the lart of labor, on the
part of capital, on the part of
those in high places and those in
low places."
Pleading for a recapture of the
ideals of patriotism of the found-
ing fathers. Mr. Monsky said:
"there can be no compromise
with liberty."
The convention also marked
the 50th anniversary of Argo
Lodge, which was host to the
convention.
Mrs. Jennie Rotfort of Miami
was elected president of the Fifth

OCCULT STUFF
The prognosticators have rediscovered the Book of Revela-
tions, which during the last world war was interpreted as pre-
saging the defeat of the Kaiser ... Now it i. Hitler whose nun,-
ber is identified as 666, and this is supposed to mean that Adolf
will kick the bucket when he's 666 months old-which unfor
tunately won't be till October. 1944 .At the nsK of sounding
defeatist we'll also remind you that the Beast of the Apocalypse
is supposed to have the claws of a bear (the Russian bear, of
course), and to roar with the voice of a lion which could indi-
cate that Hitler may for a while-only a while, mind youget
the upper hand over the British lion) And to top these horri-
ble omens, there's our discovery that by dialing A. Hitler on
any Manhattan phone you get a public booth in the Hotel
President ... But don't let it get you down.
YOU SHOULD KNOW
Gabby Goebbels' program for the summer of 1941, warns
Walter Winchell, includes the instigation of street-corner fights
in these United States Winchell's Washington bureau, by
the way, has turned over to Uncle Sam important evidence con-
cerning the activities of Nazi espionage agents in this country.
Cheers for Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.. who resigned from the
"Women United for Peace" group when she discovered that
the peace its sponsors were ranting about didn't include peace
and tolerance for the people of this country.
GAGS AROUND GOTHAM
Broadway is calling Hitler the perfect example of a success
story From paper-hanger to crepe-hanger in one genera-
tion Another gagster whom Adolf would like to gag is pro-
claiming that the Fuehrer is crazier than ever ... He used to
think he was Napoleonbut now he thinks he's Hitler .
Which reminds us to pass on the story of the performer who.
during an engagement in Berlin, grew weary of having Nazi
hoodlums hiss his best acts ... He finally posted a sign an-
nouncing that he would give a thousand marks to anybody
who would feel impelled to boo his new finale And then
fooled the customers by making the centerpiece of the finale a
huge photo of Adolf himself Sign observed in an off-Broad-
way side-street shop window: "Give until it hurts Hitler."
STAGS STUFF
French dramatist Henry Bernstein has finished his new play,
the theme of which is life in unoccupied Francewhose govern-
ment recently cancelled his citizenship ... A new brace of play-
wrights now arising on the Broadway scene are Ben and Noel
Freedman, sons of the late Dave Freedman, who used to write
the radio scripts for Eddie Cantor Playwright Samson Ra-
phaelson, on the other hand, is burgponing out in another field.
He expects to play the leading male role in his own play, "Sky-
lark," in a summer theatre this season Did you know that
Paul Lukas, the actor whom Broadway is acclaiming in Lillian
Hellman's "Watch on the Rhine," is fifty per cent Jewish? .
Lillian, incidentally, has a new diamond bracelet, a symbol of
producer Herman Shumlin's appreciation of her play-writing
ability And, of course, diamonds are more costlybut
wouldn't a rhinestone-studded watch have been more appro-
priate?
THIS AND THAT
Gertrude Samuel has completed a portrait of Louis Fisch-
er, whose new book, "Men and Politics," came out last week.
The book's first edition, incidentally, was sold out before publi-
cation, and the publishers are rushing the production of more
copies of what promises to be one of the season's best sellers.
An unusual solo instrument made its radio debut a couple of
weeks ago in Henry Brant's "Grand Concerto for a Ten-Cent
Whistle" The instrument was of the common brand our
youngsters are accustomed to buy at any nickel and dime store.
Banker Maurice Wertheim is becoming the patron saint of
chess The first Roshevsky-Horowitz match was played in
his pent-house in the East Seventies, and a galaxy of celebrities
attended The chess players sat under a picture by Picasso,
the famous Spanish painter who is now languishing in a French
concentration camp Incidentally, we were right about Horo-
witz's strength ... As we write two games have been played,
and both of them have resulted in draws.
ABOUT PEOPLE
In all the excitement about Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane."
which is at last making its appearance on the nation's screens,
people tend to forget that the author of this controversial pic-
ture is none other han Herman Mankiewicz Al Jolson. in-
sists a columnist, doesn't know his true age because the silver
cup on which his birth-date was inscribed was lost when his
family came to America ... All this is a build-up for the an-
nouncement that Jolson is now 47 Well, our information,
which comes from no less an authority than the "Biographical
Encyclopedia of American Jews," is to the effect that Al was
bom at Washington, D. C, on May 26, 1886 Which means
that his fans can start him their best wishes riqht now for his
55th birthday.
WEEKLY GIGGLE
Going the rounds is the report on the conversation between
Mussolini and Hitler "We're getting along okay, aren't we?"
Musso was saying to his partner .. "Our armies have smashed
through the Balkans, and we're right on the tail of the British in
Afnca and Iraq, and nothing can stop us now. can it? You
and I are going to drive the British out of Africa and Asia, and
we re going to be the rulers of the world, aren't we? We'll be
the bosses of everything, won't we? ." Hitler looked down and
patted Benito s pate "Sure we will." he assured "But how
about shining my other shoe now? "

Toady reduced nine times in as
SrW are again being re-
JS on June fii Th,s gas
te reduction was announced
Iv "v Bond Collins, vice-
Sdent of the People's Water
and Gas Company.
The reduced rates affect the
compar.ys general Rate "A" and
SSn-1 Hate C. Rate "A"
,ne general rate under which
schedule more than 70% of the
company's customers are billed.
Optional Rate "C" is available to
customers who use automatic gas
pater heaters as the means of
applying their entire hot water
requirements.
In explaining the savings to be
mjoycd by the company's cus-
tomers. Mr. Collins said, "The re-
duction will affect all customers
on Rate "A" Schedule whose
consumption of gas exceeds 5000
cubic feet in any single billing
period. Commencing at this
point, the savings on the rate
reduction gradually increases un-
til the maximum savings of 7.3%
is reached.
This reduction is particularly
advantageous to medium and
iarge residences, commercial in-
stitutions and apartment houses
which are being billed on one
meter, and which do not operate
for a long enough season to take
advantage of the 25% cheaper
year 'round Rate "D".
"For small short-term apart-
ment and residential customers
who are using gas refrigerators,
the company has available an
Optional Rate "B", under which
as much as 16 2-3% may be
saved, and for both large and
small short-term customers who
are using Automatic Gas Heaters
to furnish their entire supply of
hot water, the Optional Rate "C"
will save approximately 11%."
Reductions are being made in
this Optional Rate "C" on June
first to encourage the use of this
cleaner, more dependable type
of water heating by both small
ud large consumers.
'For example," said Mr. Col-
lins, "a customer now using 1500
cubic feet of gas under the "A"
schedule, may use an additional
1500 cubic feet to operate an
Automatic Water Heater, at an
additional cost of only $1.80 un-
der the new "C" schedule. This
is 28% cheaper than the same

subversists who play Hitler's
game of divide and rule. As part
<>f fhe propaganda flood by ihe
enemies of democracy there re-
cently appeared a 256 page book.
"The Octopus." which now is cir-
culating quite extensively in this
area
As a matter of fact, a copy of ;
this manual of anti-Semitism ev- t
en was placed in the local li- '
braric-s and has become a topic
for parlor conversations Al-
though The Octopus supposedly
is sold at fifty cents per copy,
thouands of copies have been
mailed free of charge to ministers
and other people in the public
eye as well as to each member
of Congress. After one has read
this villification it is easy to guess
the source of the funds for its
publication.
The limitation of space prohi-
bits a lengthy discussion of the
blatant lies contained in "The Oc-
topus." However, so many inquir-
ies have come to us that a few
facts should be stated, especially
since more than half of the doc-
ument is devoted to an attack
upon the B'nai B'nth and the
ADL. the latter being smeared
as "pro-red" and "anti-Chris-
tian." *
The author of this vile material
is listed as being Rev. Frank
I Woodruff Johnson of Omaha.
'. Nebraska. Actually, no such
j person exists and one of the
' chief advertisers for the book has
(admitted this. The real writer
i whose name is known, is not a
Christian minister, but a man
whose racket for a number of
years has been the sale of anti-
democratic literature, who has
made a paying business out of
hating-baiting. and who regularly
edits an anti-Semitic newsletter.
His posing as a minister in order
to sell hate can only be inter-
preted as a cowardly and fraud-
ulent attempt to add an aura of
religion to a godless document."
After an intensive investiga-
tion into "The Octopus." the NRS
recently reported: "Even a cur-
sory examination of The Octo-
pus' produces sheaves of evi-
dence that this book is nothing
but a repetitious compilation of
all those scurrilous statements
which have been launched by
Goebbels et al for years. The
tentacles with which the Octo-
pus tries to snare gulible rookies
for the anti-democratic cause are
veritably hoary with age and red-
faced with shame from past ex-
posures. They consist of quota-

"International Bankers"
Question: I see by the papers
that the "Jewish international
banker" issue has been dragged
out again, this time by a Con-
gresman from Mississippi. Please
state the figures on the extent
of Jewish control over banking.
Answer: Jews very definitely
do not run banking. They play
little or no part in the great
commercial houses. The ADL
Fiqpside Pamphlet No. 2 has
some very pertinent facts on this
point.
Of 99.000 bankers and banking
officials in this country less than
600 are Jews. This is little more
than one-half of one per cent.
Anti-Semites often charge that
Jewish banking control is cen-
tered in New York State. But of
27 banks studied in New York,
only 40 of 542 bank directors
were Jews, and most of these
served on the board of the Pub-
lic National Bank, a Jewish bank
catering to Jewish clients. Not
a single Jewish director is to be
found on the board of the Chase
National Bank, the City National
Bank, or the Bankers Trust Com-
pany.
If international bankers" are
ranked upon the amounts of for-
eign loans outstanding. J. P. Mor-
gan, with 19.87%; National City
Co..-with 11.71 >; Dillon, Read,
with 11.44%; Chase. Harris,
Forbes, with 8:45%; Guaranty
Co., with 6.68%; Bancamcrica-
Blair. with 6.18%. and Lee. Hig-
ginson, with 4.23% all rank
above the highest Jewish house,
which is Kuhn, Loeb, with 2.88%.
Furthermore, the most active
partners in Kuhn. Loeb and Co.,
are Elisha Walker. Bovenizer.
Wiseman, and Knowlton. none of
them Jews.
These figures speak for them-
selves. However, they will con-
vince only the person who is op-
en-minded and sincere in his de-
sire to know the truth. .Those
who delight in feeding on hatred
or who find it profitable to do
so, will continue to shout about
the "Jewish international bank-
ers." no matter what kind of
facts they are shown.

OF Mil BEACH
Mitchell Wolfson. member of
the Miami Beach City Council
for the past two years and victor
in the last city election by a close
margin, filed his declaration of
intention to be a candidate in
the coming councilmanic race,

ried to Frances Cohen Wolfson
and they have three children:
Louis, who is 13. Frances Louise,

ami Beach Public schools, and
Mitchell. Junior. 18 months old.
The Wolfson children are fourth

Councilman Wolfson attended
school in Key West and started
his college career at Columbia
j University. He began his busi-
] ness career with his father who
was owner of the East Coast
Wholesale Corporation, a mer-
cantile establishment in business
for fifty years in south Florida,
and b0amo secretary-treasurer
of that organization.
In 1924. with Sidney Meyer,
he acquired the Capitol Theatre
which was the beginning of the
Wometco Theatres which now
operates 23 theatres in the great-
er Miami area and vicinity, in-
cluding the Lincoln, Plaza. Ca-
njeo, and .Surf Theatres in Miami
Beach.
Wolfson is a charter member

ive in many charity drives.

years in the City Council and his
campaign managers have adopted
the slogan "He Represents All

During his terms of office-.
Councilman Wolfson has been
active in providing more ad~-
quate parking spaces and has
been a vigorous protector of the
Miami Beach Public School Sys-
tem. He is at present leading
the fight against the bill whirr.
would eliminate separate school
districts of Dade county and place
all of the schools in one county
system. If this bill is passed.
Miami Beach schools which now
has one of the highest ratings :n
the country, would be reduced to
one of the lowest ratings in tl
state.
Another feature of Councilman
Wolfson's council service, was his
fight for the establishment of n
new city ocean-front park from
Biscayne to First Street and the
acquisition by the city of the
million-dollar pier to be convert-
ed into a convention hall and a
place for the entertainment of
various amusements for Miami
Beach visitors and residents, and
the purchase of a twenty acre
ocean front park at 75th street
and the ocean front from the
Government. While on the coun-
cil, he has given special atten-
tion to city planning, the acqui-
sition of more parks and play-
grounds and the development of
summer tourist and year-round
business for Miami Beach.

FRIDAY MAY 16, 1941 [IS RATES HI pffl JUNE I fJewistfloriidliari PAGE SEVEN ta Miami Beach, Hollywood A Fort Laudcrdalc, gas rates, Toady reduced nine times in as SrW are again being reJS on June fii Th,s gas „ te reduction was announced Iv "v Bond Collins, viceSdent of the People's Water and Gas Company. The reduced rates affect the compar.ys general Rate "A" and SSn-1 Hate C. Rate "A" ne general rate under which schedule more than 70% of the company's customers are billed. Optional Rate "C" is available to customers who use automatic gas pater heaters as the means of applying their entire hot water requirements. In explaining the savings to be mjoycd by the company's customers. Mr. Collins said, "The reduction will affect all customers on Rate "A" Schedule whose consumption of gas exceeds 5000 cubic feet in any single billing period. Commencing at this point, the savings on the rate reduction gradually increases until the maximum savings of 7.3% is reached. This reduction is particularly advantageous to medium and iarge residences, commercial institutions and apartment houses which are being billed on one meter, and which do not operate for a long enough season to take advantage of the 25% cheaper year 'round Rate "D". "For small short-term apartment and residential customers who are using gas refrigerators, the company has available an Optional Rate "B", under which as much as 16 2-3% may be saved, and for both large and small short-term customers who are using Automatic Gas Heaters to furnish their entire supply of hot water, the Optional Rate "C" will save approximately 11%." Reductions are being made in this Optional Rate "C" on June first to encourage the use of this cleaner, more dependable type of water heating by both small ud large consumers. 'For example," said Mr. Collins, "a customer now using 1500 cubic feet of gas under the "A" schedule, may use an additional 1500 cubic feet to operate an Automatic Water Heater, at an additional cost of only $1.80 under the new "C" schedule.

MAY 16. 1941 VOLUME 14 NUMBER 20 THE ANTI SEMITIC STORM INCREASES The occupied peat of France is officially still a section of France. The law-makers there, however, are the Nazis. The Nazi military administration in Paris, like that of the other Nazioccupied countries, is determined to annihilate the Jews and is carrying out its determination in even a stricter manner than in Nazi-held Poland. The latest order of the Nazi military authorities in Paris combines the introduction in occupied France of the Nuremberg Laws with the complete segregation of the Jews from non-Jews in daily life. Jews in France—and a 'lew" is defined as any person with three Jewish grandparents—are no longer permitted :o engage in retail and wholesale trading, cannot maintain restaurants and hotels, are forbidden to do any kind of work that can bring them in touch with non-Jews. Jewish employees who %vill inevitably be dismissed under this new policy, are not entitled to any compensation. Imprisonment and confiscation of properly awaits any Jew who will be accused of violating this new order. Similar reports of Nazi ruthlessness are now beginning to reach America from Nazi-occupied Bulgaria, Yugoslavia and Greece. The first measures taken by the Nazi invaders there was to loot all Jewish shops, to introduce yellow arm-bands for the Jewish population and to organize Jewish men into units fcr forced labor. Wherever the Nazis enter, their first action is directed against the Jews to annihilate them economically and physically. The worst part of it is that the world is now practically closed to the Jews suffering from the Nazis in Europe. There is no escape for these unfortunates until and unless Hitler is defeated. Some four million Jews on the Nazi-enslaved European continent cue now left to the mercy of the Nazis, and nothing but emigration to the wide spaces of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and other American countries can save them. (CONTINUED FROM PAGt 1) ——— • the House of Representatives, and Dr HaiTy Byrd. president of the University of Maryland. Speaker Rayburn. who spoke off the record on the world crisis, said he had been offered a radio hookup but had declined in view of the forthcoming major pronouncement on foreign affairs by President Roosevelt. Mr. Monsky said "when we speak of discipline and self-restraint, we have in mind that EYES ON PALESTINE The eyes of the world—not only of the Jews—are now turned towards Palestine and Syria. The Nazis are trying to coerce the Vichy government into permitting Nazi troops to land in Syria for the purpose of striking at the Suez Canal, via Syria and Palestine. The French government, which still holds the mandate over Syria, claims that it does not intend to open Syria to German troops. But at the same time, it is reported that the French High Commissioner for Syria has reached an understanding with the Arabs there recognizing their claim to independence. That the Nazis have infested Syria with hundreds of Arab propagandists whom they trained in Berlin is a well-established fact. Pro-Nazi sentiments in Syria cue being stimulated by various Arab clubs financed from Berlin. If Arabs in Syria cue left to decide whether Nazi troops should be admitted, the danger exists that their decision may be of a kind from which the Nazis will benefit. And Syria is. after all, the threshold of Palestine. This brings up again the question of the establishment of a Jewish Army to defend Palestine. The Jewish Agency is now conducting the recruitment of the able-bodied Jewish population in Palestine, but what about arming the recruits? What about giving them the proper military training? What about considering them officially a part of the British military forces in the Near East? Though praise is given constantly by the British military command to the 8,000 Jews who are serving on the Egyptian and Libyan fronts, the British government is still hesitating to permit formation of a Jewish army in Palestine. Such an army would enforce the British military in the Near East with tens of thousands of Jewish soldiers and officers willing to give their lives in the fight against the Axis invasion into the Near East. Is it not high time for the British to assume a sober attitude with regard to the demand for the formation of a Jewish army? Edward Rosenblum New Fifth District President careless utterances are always dangerous, but they arc especially so when the instruments of propaganda operated by the enemies of our present-day civilization seize upon every' indirect word to damn us and to make our way harder." He emphasized that "the price of freedom is sacrifice—sacrifice on the part of all of us, sacrifice on the lart of labor, on the part of capital, on the part of those in high places and those in low places." Pleading for a recapture of the ideals of patriotism of the founding fathers. Mr. Monsky said: "there can be no compromise with liberty." The convention also marked the 50th anniversary of Argo Lodge, which was host to the convention. Mrs. Jennie Rotfort of Miami was elected president of the Fifth District Grand Lodge of Ladies Auxiliaries, succeeding Mrs. L. Koenigsberg of Washington. Mrs. Sol Goldstrom of Miami Beach was honored with the selection as representative of the Fifth District to the supreme council of B'nai B'rith Ladies Auxiliaries. -TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHEREStrictly Confidential -By PHINEAS J. BIRON CLERGY OF THREE FAITHS NAMED TO SERVICE BOARD New York ( R N S > — Three • prominent clergymen of the Pro; testant. Catholic and Jewish j faiths have assumed the co-chair1 manship of the Clergy Advisory j Board of the United Service Or' ganizations for National Defense. The clergymen are the Rt. Rev. Henry St. George Tuckere, presiding bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church: the Most Rev. Edward Mooney. Roman Catholic I Archbishop of Detroit; and Rabbi Edward L. Israel, president of the j Synagogue Council of America. Member agencies of the service 'body are the Y. M. C. A., the j National Catholic Community Service, the Salvation Army, the Y. W. C. A., the Jewish Welfare Board, and the National Travelers Aid Association. OCCULT STUFF The prognosticators have rediscovered the Book of Revelations, which during the last world war was interpreted as presaging the defeat of the Kaiser ... Now it i. Hitler whose nun,ber is identified as 666, and this is supposed to mean that Adolf will kick the bucket when he's 666 months old-which unfor tunately won't be till October. 1944 .At the nsK of sounding defeatist we'll also remind you that the Beast of the Apocalypse is supposed to have the claws of a bear (the Russian bear, of course), and to roar with the voice of a lion which could indicate that Hitler may for a while-only a while, mind you—get the upper hand over the British lion) And to top these horrible omens, there's our discovery that by dialing A. Hitler on any Manhattan phone you get a public booth in the Hotel President ... But don't let it get you down. YOU SHOULD KNOW Gabby Goebbels' program for the summer of 1941, warns Walter Winchell, includes the instigation of street-corner fights in these United States Winchell's Washington bureau, by the way, has turned over to Uncle Sam important evidence concerning the activities of Nazi espionage agents in this country. Cheers for Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.. who resigned from the "Women United for Peace" group when she discovered that the peace its sponsors were ranting about didn't include peace and tolerance for the people of this country. GAGS AROUND GOTHAM Broadway is calling Hitler the perfect example of a success story From paper-hanger to crepe-hanger in one generation Another gagster whom Adolf would like to gag is proclaiming that the Fuehrer is crazier than ever ... He used to think he was Napoleon—but now he thinks he's Hitler Which reminds us to pass on the story of the performer who. during an engagement in Berlin, grew weary of having Nazi hoodlums hiss his best acts ... He finally posted a sign announcing that he would give a thousand marks to anybody who would feel impelled to boo his new finale And then fooled the customers by making the centerpiece of the finale a huge photo of Adolf himself Sign observed in an off-Broadway side-street shop window: "Give until it hurts Hitler." STAGS STUFF French dramatist Henry Bernstein has finished his new play, the theme of which is life in unoccupied France—whose government recently cancelled his citizenship ... A new brace of playwrights now arising on the Broadway scene are Ben and Noel Freedman, sons of the late Dave Freedman, who used to write the radio scripts for Eddie Cantor Playwright Samson Raphaelson, on the other hand, is burgponing out in another field. He expects to play the leading male role in his own play, "Skylark," in a summer theatre this season Did you know that Paul Lukas, the actor whom Broadway is acclaiming in Lillian Hellman's "Watch on the Rhine," is fifty per cent Jewish? Lillian, incidentally, has a new diamond bracelet, a symbol of producer Herman Shumlin's appreciation of her play-writing ability And, of course, diamonds are more costly—but wouldn't a rhinestone-studded watch have been more appropriate? THIS AND THAT Gertrude Samuel has completed a portrait of Louis Fischer, whose new book, "Men and Politics," came out last week. The book's first edition, incidentally, was sold out before publication, and the publishers are rushing the production of more copies of what promises to be one of the season's best sellers. An unusual solo instrument made its radio debut a couple of weeks ago in Henry Brant's "Grand Concerto for a Ten-Cent Whistle" The instrument was of the common brand our youngsters are accustomed to buy at any nickel and dime store. Banker Maurice Wertheim is becoming the patron saint of chess The first Roshevsky-Horowitz match was played in his pent-house in the East Seventies, and a galaxy of celebrities attended The chess players sat under a picture by Picasso, the famous Spanish painter who is now languishing in a French concentration camp Incidentally, we were right about Horowitz's strength ... As we write two games have been played, and both of them have resulted in draws. ABOUT PEOPLE In all the excitement about Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane." which is at last making its appearance on the nation's screens, people tend to forget that the author of this controversial picture is none other han Herman Mankiewicz Al Jolson. insists a columnist, doesn't know his true age because the silver cup on which his birth-date was inscribed was lost when his family came to America ... All this is a build-up for the announcement that Jolson is now 47 Well, our information, which comes from no less an authority than the "Biographical Encyclopedia of American Jews," is to the effect that Al was bom at Washington, D. C, on May 26, 1886 Which means that his fans can start him their best wishes riqht now for his 55th birthday. WEEKLY GIGGLE Going the rounds is the report on the conversation between Mussolini and Hitler "We're getting along okay, aren't we?" Musso was saying to his partner .. "Our armies have smashed through the Balkans, and we're right on the tail of the British in Afnca and Iraq, and nothing can stop us now. can it? You and I are going to drive the British out of Africa and Asia, and we re going to be the rulers of the world, aren't we? We'll be the bosses of everything, won't we? ." Hitler looked down and patted Benito s pate "Sure we will." he assured "But how about shining my other shoe now? *s^Vrt J Jr*i?*t**SJ*f:"^' *•

FRIDAY. MAY 16, 1941 vjewisti ffrridlilari PAGE THREE POLITICAL BRIEFS First elected to the City Council of Miami Beach in 1930, Baron dc Hirsch Meyer was re-elected in 1932 by a large majority and js now again seeking re-election. Born in Wisconsin, he graduated from the University of Wisconsin and at Harvard. Besides his participation in general communal activities, he has been actively identitiod with the Zionist movement, n as president of the HeBaron de Hirsch Meyer brew Friendly Inn when it functioned locally, was secretary and director of the Jewish Welfare Bureau, and helped establish the Baron de Hirsch Free Loan Fund of the Jewish Welfare Bureau 8 years ago by the gift of one thousand dollars. He has risen high in the legal profession since his arrival here in 1925 and has attained an unusually fine reputation for his work with the City Council of Miami Beach during his service as city councilman. His host of friends urge his reelection to office,not merely as a reward for faithful service, but because of Mr. Meyer's grasp of municipal affairs and his ability to help solve the city's problems. John Levi, president of the City Council of Miami Beach lor the past 20 years, is again a candidate for election to the City Council of Miami Beach. Coming to Miami Beach in 1912. he was one of the first men to realize the possibilities of this area and John Levi began the work which resulted in the present city. He was general manager of the first company to pump mud from the bay to develop the present City of Miami Beach and helped build the first large estate here, the Firestone estate. Mr. Levi has been elected time and again to the City Council becaue of his unquestioned ability, his unswerving honesty and because of a | knowledge of municipal affairs j that ranks him among the best i on municipal matters. His many I friends urge his re-election on i his record of unselfish devotion ; to the city's interests. | the Junior Chamber of Commerce, Bussinessman's Association and the Senior Chamber of Commerce. Pointing to the fact, that I he is "'one of the people" Mr. i Frink, in announcing his candidacy, said "I believe only a busij nessman who has made a success jof his own business should be a | member of the City Council, [which in reality is a group of men j running a fifty million dollar j corporation. I am in favor of civil service and have always given the other fellow more than an even break and I will continue to do 80." He has been active in numerous civic and philanthropic endeavors during his residence i at Miami Beach and his place of ; business has been a haven of the needy and hungry for a long time He is recognized as liberal, able, and possessing sound busii ness principle and judgement necesary for the proper adminitration of the affairs of the City I of Miami Beach as shown by his record of his past term. all of my life, I know the problems and difficulties which have arisen with the growth of Miami Beach; the tempo of the times, the people and their requirements. I have had a considerable amount of activity in civic matters as well as a long business experience, and I feel absolutely qualified to look after the interests of the people, both the property owners, and those who are not. As to my background: I am a native Floridian. I have lived in Greater Miami since 1905. During the World War I was in the United States Navy. I am past president of the Miami Beach Realty Board, a member of the Miami Beach Post, American Lemon and a member of Biscayne Lodge. F. & A. M. I have been in the real estate business for twenty two years. A great majority of the Miami Beach residents want a clean, honest and a business-like administration and if they see fit to elect me as their Councilman.

Merritt, Dean of j*j at the University of Miami w, address the Auxiliary. A scurrilous underhanded technique was employed this week in the Miami city elections to aid in defeating a candidate tor the city commission who happened to be of the Jewish taith. and to create the impression that the Jewish voters of Miami cast their ballots not as American citizens, but as an organized political group on the basis of reliqion. An individual or individuals mailed letters to all Miami residents who have distinctly Jewish names (and as an added embellishment also slipped a number of copies covertly under the office doors of non-Jewish firms( urging the defeat of this candidate on the spurious ground that "it is better that one man's ambitions be shattered than that a whole Jewish community be hurt in times like these." Fearful lest they be condemned for their cheap political chicanery, those who addressed these sheets "to the JEWISH voter" concealed their identity under the name of a non-existent "COMMITTEE TO PROTECT THE JEWISH NAME." Furthermore, their letters contained the implied threat that the whole Jewish community would pay the penalty if the Jewish candidate were elected. The circulation of such communications cloaked in anonymity is a reprehensible act and proper steps are being taken to trace their authorship. The Anti-Defamation League is not a political organization and we are not concerned with the merits of the Jewish candidate in question, although we are confident that had he been elected, he would have served his fellow-American citizens honorably and well. We are gravely concerned, however, with the implication that the Jewish community as such controls a "Jewish vote." through which it can elect a Jewish candidate, and that therefore it can be held accountable for the acts of every office-holder of the Jewish faith. Let it be stated as a matter of public record, notwithstanding the misrepresentations of such political tricksters as those who distributed these letters, that it is a flagrant falsehood to indicate that Jews vote as a religious bloc. There is no such thing as a "Jewish vote" that can be swung to this candidate or that. As Congressman Bruce Barton (a non-Jew) said in the last presidential campaign: "Jews are Americans and divide on every political and social question like their fellow American citizens. That division applies both to prominent Jewish citizens and to ordinary Jewish citisens. The right of franchise is exercised by them free from any consideration of class or group distinction. The plain fact is that when Jews walk into the voting booths, they walk in not as members of a religious faith but as American citisens." DAY J.

THREE NAZI NOT WANT VICHY ESCAPES HITLER; -SE POLICE JEWS OF GREECE TAKE MANY JEWS TOBEIMPRISONED US COMMUNISTS' BY GHETTO WALLS Lisbon (WNS)—Rumanian police, accompanied by Nazi Gestapo agents, swooped down on the Jewish quarter of Bucharest and other large cities and arrested thousands of Jews on the charge that they were Communist agents, it was reported here A number of the arrested Jews, known to be outspoken antiCommunists, were accused of being British saboteurs. The sudden raids were the first large-scale arrests of Jews in Rumania since the organized Iron Guard massacres several months ago when more than 2.000 Jews were killed. Lists of Jews seized in the raids were unobtainable. Meanwhile, the Rumanian government announced that homes confiscated recently from Jews will be used to house non-Jewish Rumanians returning from territories ceded to Hungary and Soviet Russia. At the same time it was learned that Rumania is negotiating with Soviet Russia for repatriation to Soviet-occupied Bessarabia of approximately 14,000 Besaarabianborn Jews now residing in Rumania. The negotiations have been deadlocked by Rumania s insistence that the Jews leave all their possessions and funds behind. Cairo (WNS)—The introduction (throughout Nazi-occupied Greece ;of yellow armbands for Jew.was believed here to be the forerunner of a Nazi scheme to shut in Greece's 70.000 Jews behind the .concrete walls of a ghetto similar ; in construction to that of the Warsaw ghetto. The ghetto will be built in Salonika, reports received here indicated, since close to 50.000 of 'the country's Jews are concentrated in that city. Nazi mili-l 1 tary authorities have already announced a census of the Jewish j i population in Greece.
