SYRIA REPORTED
ASKS STUDY OF
PDST WAR NEEDS
London (WNS)The London
Jewish Chronicle urged American
Jewry to send to England a
"Jewish Willkie" to study the
conditions of Jews there and to
confer with leaders of British
Jewry on a joint program to
meet the present crisis. The need
to consider post-war problems
was also cited.
Meanwhile, a farewell party-
was held here for Dr. Jacob
Kosenheim. president of the Agu-
aath Israel, who is leaving for
the United States where he will
attempt to establish an organiza-
tion qualified to speak in the
name of the whole Jewish people
and believing in the fundamental
traditions of Judaism.
Prof. Selig Brodetsky, presi-
dent of the board of Jewish De-
puties, voiced the hope that Dr.
Kosenheim will help to bring
n>ty in the ranks of American
Jewry at a time when disaster
threatens to engulf millions of

lice and Nazi Gestapo agents and

occupied France, according to re-
ports received here from Paris.
The Jews, who came to Paris
from Poland, Austria and Czech-
oslovakia, were forcibly taken
from their homes during the
night and taken to special as-
sembly centers.
The seized Jews were given
no time to collect their clothing
or other personal effects. Mem-
bers of their families were in-
structed by the Gestapo to bring
clothes, bedding, toilet articles
and food sufficient for 24 hours
to the assembly centers. Many
of the men taken in the round-up
were heads of families.
It has become established Nazi
policy to organize special labor
gangs for Jews in occupied coun-
tries to repair and reconstruct
roads and bridges destroyed dur-
ing the Nazi air raids and bom-
bardments which preceded the
occupation. Jewish inmates of
these labor gangs receive two
meagre meals a day and, in most
cases, no money or clothing.

packed to capacity at the regular
City Council meeting Wednes-
day, were presented with two
petitions asking for an immediate
allotment of $300,000 for the pur-
pose of building and equipping

Beach. Glenn O. Rasco, attorney,
representing those in favor of
the hospital offered two petitions
filed by 2211 free holders and by
2982 voters not free holders,
citing the facts and figures show-
ing the need and asking for im-
mediate action. Chas. Tobin.
council candidate, spoke in favor
of the proposal. After much
excitement and debate pro and
con, Mayor Levi stated his full
endorsement of the proposal and
stated that because of the im-
pending election he would not
bind the city by any action of
the present council.
Baron de Hirsch Meyer stating
that he has been on the Council
for a number of years always
fighting for the best interests
of the city also endorsed the pro-
ject and said that at the present,
regardless of the effect his ac-
tion will have upon his election,
he would not at the present "sell
our taxpayers down the river."
The entire matter should be
placed before the citizenry with
an election on a bond issue and
if July is not the proper time
let the election be held in Nov-
ember or December."
Mitchell Wolfson suggested
that a committee of businessmen
be selected to work out details
as to location and cost and to
place these facts before the coun-
cil and the citizens of Miami
Beach.
The petitions were returned to
their sponsors after a squabble as
to the legality of ownership and
the matter was closed without
an official vote.

A JEWISH ARMY
Atlantic City (WNS)The 24th
annual convention of the Miz-
rachi Organization of America
came to a close here with the
adoption of resolutions urging the
immediate formation of a Jewish
army in Palestine, and endorsing
President Roosevelt's national de-
fense program.
'The British government should
now be ready to arm 1000,000 of
our young brave and fearless
pioneers in Palestine to di fend
the Yishuv even to death.'' the
resolution read. The Mizrachi
parley was attended by close to
600 delegates from all over the
country.
Another resolution called for
the resettlement of homeless
Jews in the Holy Land and the
eventual creation of a Palestine
Jewish Commonwealth. "'Only
by the absorption in the Jewish
homeland of great numbers of
Jews from countries of persecu-
tion and by the restoration there-
of a Jewish commonwealth, will
the problem be solved." the reso-
lution said.
The delegates voted to raise

improved plan for cleanliness,
sanitation, and beautification of
Miami Beach. I am in favor of
building an auditorium in Flam-
ingo Park or some other suitable
location that could be used for
shows, conventions, and other af-
fairs. I am confident that I
am capable of giving Miami
Beach citizens sound and reliable
service that only those of'exper-

* When the 29,000,000th
Ford rolled recently from
the assembly line, an all-
time record for the industry
was set.
29,000,000 units built by
the same management and all
bearing one name a name
that has become one of the
best-known trade-marks in
the world!
It is significant that this
achievement comes at a time
when our country is making
a mighty effort to re-arm
swiftly. For to further that
effort, to help speed it along
in any possible way, we have
offered the vast facilities of
the Rouge Plant and every
ounce of our experience.
As you read these words,
a new $21,000,000 Ford air-
plane engine plant, started
only last fall, is nearly com-
pleted. A new magnesium
alloy plant, one of the few
in the country, is already in
production on lightweight
airplane engine castings.
Work is right now under way
on a new $18,000,000 plant
for mass production of big
bomber assemblies. Orders
have been filled for military
vehicles of several types, in-
cluding army reconnaissance
cars, army staff cars and bomb
service trucks.
In the midst of this activity
for National Defense, build-
ing the 29 millionth Ford car
is simply one part of the
day's work.
The public has acclaimed
the 1941 Ford car as the finest
in Ford history. Ford Dealers
are enjoying their greatest
sales and expecting their best
year since 1937.
It is good to be producing
the things America needs,
and to be setting records on
the way!

VOLUME 14 NUMBER 20
NECESSARY CONSIDERATION
The Jewish Floridian has through its colums editorialized,
urged and preached Federation probably more than any one
individual, group or organization, believing that Federation is
extremely important in the community and there can be no ex-
cessive reiteration of that fact.
Symbolic of the very ideal wars are now waged over
and the lack of which has created conditions unbelievable,
Federation in its very name conveys unity, and cooperation,
essentials of community progress.
Instrumental in its organization, a fact we are justly proud
of, we have watched it grow from the incubator stage into
adolescence. Like all other new ideas and community innova-
tions, Federation had its trials and tribulations, its believers
and doubters.
We have watched it grow into the stage where it became
impossible for communal-minded individuals to devote suf-
ficient time and attention to the organization that it merits and
must have to insure its successful continuance. Its existence
has not been a bed of roses, and each successive year as the
community grew, saw its difficulties and problems mounting.
Federation is now at what may be termed the crossroads.
Its directors have been elected and appointed. This coming
week from among this group we select officers. What now
faces them is the major responsibility of selecting an executive
director, now a vital and important cog in the organization.
Upon this choice, we firmly believe lies a good portion of not
only Federation's progress and future but of the community's
future. The scope of Federation has broadened from that of
solely a fund-raising institution as it was at its inception to
that of a coordinating center of the community's activities and
its usefullness is unlimited.
It is both necessary and urgent that the leadership of Fed-
eration select a man that is professionally trained, one that is
truly experienced in campaigns, community coordination and
civic planning and allow him to truly be executive director in the
full sense. The field of social endeavor today has become a
science. In order to survive in this field, a course of training
with years of experience similar to that of the medical pro-
fession is necessary, to become successful.
Other local organizations, have trained executives in charge
of the work and as can easily be ascertained we owe to them
much of their success. A further search will also show the
comparison of those groups not having trained directors.
To that end the community must demand and we urge
strongly the powers of Federation to carefully consider their
selection and under no circumstances can they or the community
which they represent afford to bring to Miami to become execu-
tive director of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation anyone
other than a trained, professional, competent, and experienced
individual who will insure the successful future of Federation
and the brilliant potentialities of our community.

Guest Columnist
Pinch hitting for Milton Fried-
man, your regular columnist, is
not an easy task. Milton has
acquired an inimitable style, and
to attempt to make this column
as interesting as his. would be
futile on my part. However, I
shall do the best, because Milton
asked me, before leaving Wash-
ington for home, to do this col-
umn for him today.
As the convention effects are
gradually wearing off, our B'nai
B'rith members are starting on
their usual serious program for
the Lodge.
I am glad to announce that
last night, at the Miami Woman's
Club, one of the outstanding pro-
grams ever held by Sholem
Lodge was conducted.
The principal speaker was Miss
Merritt. Dean of Women at the
Miami University. Miss Merritt.
speaking before the combined
group of the Lodge and the La-
dies Auxiliary thanked the mem-
bers for their interest shown in
student work at the University.
She said that the authorities of
the University are only too eager
to cooperate when such an in-
terest is shown in behalf of the
young men and Women.
Mrs. Maurice Grossman, in in-
troducing Miss Merritt. stated
that the Auxiliary planned as
its project the establishment of a
College Mother's Club, the pur-
pose of which is to show home
hospitality to the girls at Miami
University. Miss Merritt thought
this project wonderful and agreed
to do everything possible to help.
The feature of the evening
were musical selections by stu-
dents from the University.
Taking part were: Florence
Geschwind. cello; Daniel Gordon,
piano; Ben Lewkowitz, violin.
These students played so ad-
mirably that they won the unani-
mous acclaim of everyone pre-
sent.
Convention Highlights Reported
at Meeting
After opening the meeting last
evening, Brother Abe Aronovitz,
president, called on various mem-
bers for their impressions of the
convention. It was very inter-
esting to get a cross section of
opinions of the convention from
experts such as Brothers Ike
Levin. Elry Stone. Walter Kov-
ner. Kenneth Oka and Sol Gold-
strom.
While each one gave different
impressions, the consensus of op-
infon was that it was one of the
outstanding conventions ever
held.

PALESTINE JEWS
L
New York (WNS)Dr. Chaim
Weizmann, president of the Jew-
ish Agency for Palestine and of
the World Zionist Organization,
declared that in the face of the
Arab revolt in Iraq, Vichy's sur-
render to the Nazis, and Arab
defections in Syria, the Jews of
Palestine remain the most loyal
bulwark for democracy in the
"Near Eastern field of intrigue
and outright hostility."
Speaking before more than
4.000 persons in Carnegie Hall.
Dr. Weizmann urged the British
government to arm the Jewish
population of Palestine to enable
them to defend themselves and
to render effective aid in the
struggle for democracy.
He pointed out that despite
the fact that the interests of the
Jews had been sacrificed by a
British appeasement policy to-
ward the Arabs, the Jewish com-
munity of Palestine rallied to
Britain's side as soon as she
found herself confronted by war.
"I am confident," he said, "that
the Jews in Palestine and the
British would rather die fighting
than be enslaved like France.
There is indestructible hope in
me that we shall survive this
storm. We have got to make up
our minds that we will have to
rebuild what might be destroyed.
We shall build Palestine with
you or without you and we shall
build it again."

in the Nazified Slovakian gov-

their own use $1,000,000 worth of
jewelry confiscated by the gov-

Following the confiscation of
the jewelry from Jewish mer-

that the valuables had been

The gems allegedly were to fi-
nance a relief program for the
country's poor.
Recently, wives of several gov-
ernment officials appeared in
public wearing jewels which were
known to be confiscated from
the Jews. Among the ladies
wearing the confiscated gem were
the wives of the vice-premier and
the interior minister.

PLAIN TALK
GOOD NAME
by AL SEGAL
Mr. Tennenbaum died recently. He was known affection-
ately as "Jake" all over town. The sign over his store read
"Jake Tennenbaum." The conductors on the street saluted him
by name if he happened to be on the sidewalk when they drove
by. They know him as an old friend of their families. They
had heard of his good name from their fathers who had heard
from their fathers what an honorable, fair-dealing man Jake
Tennenbaum was.
Mr. Tennenbaum was thankfully proud of the name he had.
It was not merely a name that was inherited; it was a name he
had earned because a name is worth only what you make of it.
His business had prospered through 55 years altogther on ac-
count of his good name whose repute the first generation of cus-
tomers had handed down even to their children's children.
It all went back more than 55 yearsto the early eighties
when the thousands from Russia began coming here. Mr.
Tennenbaum was from the Lithuanian partSuwalki. He was
one of the last of those early immigrants in our town.
Their lives were a lovely American epic: Sometimes their
sons look back reverentially at the whole story. Their bitter
struggle for a foothold among strangers. Their brave, toil-
some way in a new world. The poverty of their purses but the
richness of their hearts. The first thing they did was to rent a
store room for a synagogue. Torah was all they had. It was
in their hearts.
Their unremitting devotion to their families still in Europe.
Of every hard-earned dollar the larger portion was saved to
bring them over. The home was ready for them when they
camea few rooms, furniture all paid for, too. A few rooms
upstairs in a tenement house. It was like heaven, after every-
thing. Heaven earned by toil, sweat and pain.
There are only a few left in our town of those pioneers. They
aie people in their late seventies and eighties. In the sunlight,
on their porches, they sit these spring mornings thankful for the
way things turned out for them. Their work had made them
moderately prosperous and they had lived to see their children
respected people in the city.
They had rendered unto God what was due Him. too. Their
synagogues were splendid edifices and it was all right that some
of them still carried mortgages. The mortgages would be hand-
ed down to the children and it was good that the children would
have burdens to carry and to labor against. It wasn't good to
make things too easy for the children.
The cheder they had founded for their children in a tenement
house room had become a great bureau of Jewish education.
Old Mr. Schochet who was the first teacher had been succeeded

HERBERT A
INK
CHAS. S. TOBIN
Advocating a Municipal Hos-
pital for Miami Beach even be-
fore the present political cam-
paign opened. Chas. S. Tobin.
candidate for Miami Beach Coun-
cil, has dug into the financial
report of the city and according
to his statement, finds that is is
possible for Miami Beach to con-
struct and operate a Municipal
Hospital, not only avoiding any
possibility of deficit but by his
figures can show that such an
institution will return a hand-
some profit.
At the end of the last fiscal
period, he stated, there was in
the current fund a surplus of
more than S580.000 of which more
than S340.000 was in cash.
From investigation it has been
found that a fully equipped one
hundred bed hospital would cost
no more than S300.000 and pos-
sibly less.
With the new law just passed
empowering the county to levy
an additional tax for hospital-
ization, the Beach is faced with
the prospect of paying out an-
nually the sum of SIOO.OOO to the
county. This sum will be re-
turned to our City only if there
exists a Municipal Hospital. To-
gether with approximately $30.-
000 given each year to St. Fran-
cis" Hospital, there is a fund of
S130.000 for operating expenses
even before the doors are open.
It is therefore logical to sup-
pose that such an institution
would be operated at a profit,
considering the small percentage
of charitv cases it would be
called upon to serve, compared
to other communities of like
size.
It may appear to some that
inasmuch as the council had al-
ready taken so-called favorable
action, he further stated, the
hospital question was no longer
am connected with no political
group or clique and that I have
no axes to grind, asking only the
privilege of serving as a true
representative of the people.'
BEN COHEN
Ben Cohen, candidate for Mi-
ami Beach Council, states he
is well-known to readers of the
Jewish Floridian. He has offered
himself to the voters of Miami
Beach on an eight-point platform
calling for a permanent commit-
tee of councilmen to meet reg-
ularly with hotel and apartment

decided to kill the issue by voting
to hold a bond issue election.
They very well knew that at
least 5C"(> of the freeholders must
vote to legalize such an election
and they further knew that it
was practically impossible to get
50% of Miami Beach freeholders
to cast a ballot during the month
of July as most of them would
be away on summer vacations.
Chas. S. Tobin. said his sup-
porters, has seen through this
plan and is therefore advocating
the construction of this hospital

Mr. Tennenbaum was one of the figures of this epic of our
town. He began as a peddler with a large pack on his back.
Old people all over town remembered him from that time, es-
pecially the Irish up on Mt. Adams. Mt. Adams was the first
place he went to when he started out with his peddler's pack.
Old people said proudly yes, they knew Jake when he was a
peddler and came to their houses with his big bundle.
They knew him as an honorable man who always dealt
fairly with them; a kindly friend. They were happy as for some
kinsman making good when they heard, in the year 1886, that
Jake Tennenbaum had opened a furniture store. They said
Jake dserved to get along so well, considering how square he
had always been.
They followed him to his store. They said they knew they
would always be treated right by Jake. They told their child-

they went to Jake's store. They called him Uncle Jake.

was running away to other streets, but Jake Tennenbaum's
good name had become like some revered landmark in his
block. He was a tradition and people went to Jake's senti-
mentally, as they liked to go to Trinity Church, farther down
the street, long after they had moved out of the neighborhood.
Mr. Tennenbaum became poignantly aware of his many
years when the grandchildren of the Gradys, the Bradys and
the O'Briens began coming to his store to buy the things 'or
their own households.
"You know my grandfather. He was Mr. Grady. He always
spoke of you as Jake."
Grady's granddaughter! Yes, he knew Grady from the
time he was a peddler. Up there on the hill. Grady was one
of the first people he called on with his pack. Grady was
friendly to him, a stranger. A good man, Grady. The fifty
years had passed and he, Jake Tennenbaum, had been held
in honor from the time of his first customers even unto now. As
far back as that "Yes, your grandfather Grady ..."
That was something to have lived forto earn his good
name, he thought. He was already along in his seventies. His
short, stocky figure now moved about more slowly in his familiar
scene. He gave the impression of a man who had added up
his life, good and sorrow, and was content with the sum of it.
He had been faithful in all things, to God as to men. In his

They feel comforted to look backward, are afraid to look for-

Racial Legislation
One of the alarming trends
during the past few months has
been the deluge of foreign propa-
ganda which through one means
or another is able to enter this
country from abroad, and also
to be published here at home.
At present. Congress has before
it two bills introduced by Senator
Guy Gillette of Iowa which aim
at correcting this deplorable sit-
uation. These bills in effect de-
fend the citizenry of this country
against attack of a racial or re-
ligious character. According to
a recent summary by the J. T. A.,
legislation furthered by the sena-
tor consists of the following:
(1) Establishment under the di-
rection of the Secretary of Inter-
ior of a special bureau to investi-
gate all propaganda directed at
the incitement of racial and re-
ligious prejudice, which would
be authorized to spend up to
$500,000 a year in bringing the
sources and nature of such propa-
ganda before the public. The
bureau would be under the direc-
tion of an $8.000-a-year director.
(2) A ban on transmission
through the mails of all propa-
ganda designed to incite "arson,
murder, assassination and riots"
and "all fraudulent and scurri-
lous matter attacking any racial
or religious groups in this coun-
try" unless such matter bore full
details as to the names and ad-
dresses of all persons and groups
sponsoring or financing its dis-
semination;
(3) A ban on the same type of
material emanating from foreign
sources, unless the same details
were given;
(4) In the second bill the publi-
cation, dissemination and use of
the mails for material attacking
racial and religious groups, when
such material is used in behalf
of any candidate or any issue in-
volved in an election to a Federal
office, is speedily banned.
Somewhat similar legislation
has been introduced into the
Florida State Legislature. Its
passage would help to remedy
at least partially a condition that
has gotten progressively worse.
During the 1940 Campaign racial
and religious prejudice was in-
jected into the elections and even
during the recent contest for the
Miami city commission, a similar
occurence took place. Write your
senator your thought on this im-
portant legislation.
Question: Do the Jews control
the wealth of Americaas propa-
gandists assert? Are the top fi-
nancial families of the Nation
of Jewish originas anti-Semitic
books, leaflets and cartoons
would have people believe?
Answer: The answer is "NO!"
based on the report released
recently by the Security Ex-
change Commission, prepared for
the monopoly committee. This
report shows that three members
of the Ford familyHenry
Ford, his son, Edsel, and Edsel's
wife, Mrs. Clara J. Fordrate as
the wealthiest family owners of
corporation stock in America.
(The Ford company stock had a
book value of $624,975,000 on
December 31, 1937.)
The DuPont family, with $573,-
690,000 holdings chiefly in the
E. I. DuPont de Nemours Co. and
the United States Rubber Co.,
ranked as the second wealthiest
stockholders among corporations
analyzed.
Other families with large hold-
ings ranging from $396,583,000 to
$50,044,000 are: The Rockefeller
family, Standard Oil Co. (New-
Jersey, (Indiana) and (Califor-
nia), and Socony Vacuum Oil

FRIDAY, MAY 23, 1941 fJewisti fkrkliari PAGE THREE POLITICAL BRIEFS MITCHELL WOLFSON Manv active new workers have been enrolled in the campaign tor the re-election of Mitchell Wolfson for the Miami Beach Council. Daily gatherings are bring held and the enthusiasum of his supporters is increasing acrnrding to the many workers who are assisting Wolfson in his camnaien In Jewish affairs, Mitchell Wolfson has been active in B'nai B'rith, Anti-Defamation League, is director of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, and a member of Temple Israel He has also been active in the Miami Chamber of Commerce, the Beach Rotary Club, the Shrine and other national groups. Mr. Wolfson having an extremely successful business as the co-owner of the Wometco Theatres is asking support of the voters on the basis of his service on the Council for the past two years. BARON DE HIRSCH MEYER Baron de Hirsch Meyer, seeking re-election to the City Council, has served the City of Miami Beach continuously since 1930 and is recognized not only for his tireless energy devoted to the interests of the municipality but for his fearlessness in taking stand on issues regardless of the effect it might have towards receiving support of groups or voters when he was certain that the results would not be beneficial to the city. He has been active in Jewish, civic and synagogual affairs since his coming to this city. HARRY MCCARTHY A graduate of Yale, coming to Miami Beach in 1923, Harry McCarthy candidate for council, engaged in the real estate business with his associates and built and owned the Gulf Stream council in 1926, McCarthy served six years, considered the most crucial in the history of the city, ihe readjustment of the city government after the hurricane and nal estate speculation Derlods during which taxes were reduced and many other worthwhile improvements made including the now famous Lummus city. Another interesting letter from an old time resident, went on to say in a letter to Mr. Frazurt> > 'You are the only candidate who has come out openly as an Independent, rest assured that n 5 W \&i us wno art old residents of Miami Beach, admire your stand etc. etc." Many civic organizations have asked John Frazure to speak before their membership, and he has already spoken at the Civic and Miami Beach Young Democratic Clubs. Mr. Frazure is very enthusiastic regarding the reception he has received wherever he has appeared. Painting, Paperhanging Plastering Decorating Expert Workmanship Licensed and Insured Free Estimates PHONE 4-0884 Harry McCarthy Park, the buying of Flamingo Park, the playground at Second street and Washington on the avenue and the purchase of the Municipal Golf Course are part of the record his friends and supporters point to in urging his candidacy. They stated that it was after much coaxing that Harry McCarthy entered the race and believe that the experience and his progressiveness place him in the ideal position to solve the many problems confronting Mi ami Beach. HERB A. FRINK Herb A. Frink, seeking reelection as Miami Beach City Councilman is a native of Florida arriving in Miami in 1922. He operates the Pig Trail Inn, known as one of the largest places of it kind. He was elected to the council for the first time two years ago and friends point I out that he has helped provide for public improvements amounting to close to a million dollars. He aided in the establishment of the Health department for the city of Miami Beach, the obtaining of a six-day week for police, firemen, and life guards, and perfecting civil service for employees. Frink states that he has supported the establishment of the ocean front park at South beach together with proposed convention hall on the Million Dollar Pier. He is a life member of the Masonic Lodge of Miami Beach and is active in many other organizations. JOHN C. FRAZURE John C. Frazure in the field of over fifteen candidates making the race for City Councilman, is highly elated with the many congratulatory letter pouring in on hi me from interested Beacchites. "Jack" is making the race as an Independent, and has no tieups with any faction or crowd, his supporters state, and this has appealed to many of the residents at Miami Beach, and they have given expression to the stand he has taken by letters and telephone calls. One very much interested Miami Beachile wrote. "I am very glad some one has enough intestinal fortitude to defy the mobs, and does not hesitate to have it broadcast throughout the VOTE TUESDHV JUHE RE-ELECT MITCHELL WDLF5DN —Paid I'.illtic-al Ad. MtZRACHi URGES A JEWISH ARMY Atlantic City (WNS)—The 24th annual convention of the Mizrachi Organization of America came to a close here with the adoption of resolutions urging the immediate formation of a Jewish army in Palestine, and endorsing President Roosevelt's national defense program. 'The British government should now be ready to arm 1000,000 of our young brave and fearless pioneers in Palestine to di fend the Yishuv even to death.'' the resolution read. The Mizrachi parley was attended by close to 600 delegates from all over the country. Another resolution called for the resettlement of homeless Jews in the Holy Land and the eventual creation of a Palestine Jewish Commonwealth. "'Only by the absorption in the Jewish homeland of great numbers of Jews from countries of persecution and by the restoration thereof a Jewish commonwealth, will the problem be solved." the resolution said. The delegates voted to raise S50.000 in 1941 to complete a $1000.00 fund for the developWILLIAM BURBRIDGE William Burbridge. former Miami Beach councilman and seeking election on June 3, served three consecutive terms on the Council from 1932 through 1939. Two years ago he lost a seat on the Council by several votes. Born in Jacksonville of pioneer Floridian parents, he became one of the largest real estate operators in Duval County entering political affairs in the county; came to Miami Beach in 1923 he was at one time one of the largest holders of real estate in Miami Beach. In addition to his many other activities, he was a builder and was responsible for the erection of many of the magnificent structures which now grace the municipality. During his tenure of office. Burbridge was in charge of streets, sidewalks, and sewers and supervised the expenditure fo S2.725.000 for city improvements; was one of the original sponsors of civil service for Miami Beach employees. "My program for the voters, he said, "will stress chiefly an improved plan for cleanliness, sanitation, and beautification of Miami Beach. I am in favor of building an auditorium in Flamingo Park or some other suitable location that could be used for shows, conventions, and other affairs. I am confident that I am capable of giving Miami Beach citizens sound and reliable service that only those of'experience and proven ability as leaders are able to do." Mr Burbridge's candidacy has been endorsed by prominent business and professional leaders ol all faiths of the City • l>* JUNIOR HADASSAH by ROSALYN KLEIN Candidates competing for the title of May Queen at the Junior Hadassah Annual May Day Dance Sunday, May 25 at "the Wofford Hotel include: Sally Heifetz, Y.

It is significant that this achievement comes at a time when our country is making a mighty effort to re-arm swiftly. For to further that effort, to help speed it along in any possible way, we have offered the vast facilities of the Rouge Plant and every ounce of our experience. As you read these words, a new $21,000,000 Ford airplane engine plant, started only last fall, is nearly completed. A new magnesium alloy plant, one of the few in the country, is already in production on lightweight airplane engine castings. Work is right now under way on a new $18,000,000 plant for mass production of big bomber assemblies. Orders have been filled for military vehicles of several types, including army reconnaissance cars, army staff cars and bomb service trucks. In the midst of this activity for National Defense, building the 29 millionth Ford car is simply one part of the day's work. The public has acclaimed the 1941 Ford car as the finest in Ford history. Ford Dealers are enjoying their greatest sales and expecting their best year since 1937. It is good to be producing the things America needs, and to be setting records on the way!

PAGE EIGHT vJenisti Fhrkiiari FRIDAY, MAY 23. 1941 The ADL News Service by WILLIAM I. BOXERMAN. Director FLORIDA REGIONAL OFFICE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE OF BNAI BRITH Thic column, a regular feature, aims to familiarize the Jeteish public with wrww pheucs ai the problems which concent ADL. As Part of its sen-ice, readers are invited to address Questions on current Jewish problems to the writer at 817 Sevbold Building, Miami. Replies will be made cither in this column or in direct correspondence. Often indh'iduals hear loose charges made about the Jewish group or hare non-Jewish friends who harbor misconceptions which they cannot clarify because of inadequate information. Inquiries of this kind are especially welcome. 1 he name of the questioner will be held in the strictest confidence if he so desires. Racial Legislation One of the alarming trends during the past few months has been the deluge of foreign propaganda which through one means or another is able to enter this country from abroad, and also to be published here at home. At present. Congress has before it two bills introduced by Senator Guy Gillette of Iowa which aim at correcting this deplorable situation. These bills in effect defend the citizenry of this country against attack of a racial or religious character. According to a recent summary by the J. T. A., legislation furthered by the senator consists of the following: (1) Establishment under the direction of the Secretary of Interior of a special bureau to investigate all propaganda directed at the incitement of racial and religious prejudice, which would be authorized to spend up to $500,000 a year in bringing the sources and nature of such propaganda before the public. The bureau would be under the direction of an $8.000-a-year director. (2) A ban on transmission through the mails of all propaganda designed to incite "arson, murder, assassination and riots" and "all fraudulent and scurrilous matter attacking any racial or religious groups in this country" unless such matter bore full details as to the names and addresses of all persons and groups sponsoring or financing its dissemination; (3) A ban on the same type of material emanating from foreign sources, unless the same details were given; (4) In the second bill the publication, dissemination and use of the mails for material attacking racial and religious groups, when such material is used in behalf of any candidate or any issue involved in an election to a Federal office, is speedily banned. Somewhat similar legislation has been introduced into the Florida State Legislature. Its passage would help to remedy at least partially a condition that has gotten progressively worse. During the 1940 Campaign racial and religious prejudice was injected into the elections and even during the recent contest for the Miami city commission, a similar occurence took place. Write your senator your thought on this important legislation. Question: Do the Jews control the wealth of America—as propagandists assert? Are the top financial families of the Nation of Jewish origin—as anti-Semitic books, leaflets and cartoons would have people believe? Answer: The answer is "NO!" —based on the report released recently by the Security Exchange Commission, prepared for the monopoly committee. This report shows that three members of the Ford family—Henry Ford, his son, Edsel, and Edsel's wife, Mrs. Clara J. Ford—rate as the wealthiest family owners of corporation stock in America. (The Ford company stock had a book value of $624,975,000 on December 31, 1937.) The DuPont family, with $573,690,000 holdings chiefly in the E. I. DuPont de Nemours Co. and the United States Rubber Co., ranked as the second wealthiest stockholders among corporations analyzed. Other families with large holdings ranging from $396,583,000 to $50,044,000 are: The Rockefeller family, Standard Oil Co. (NewJersey, (Indiana) and (California), and Socony Vacuum Oil Co., Inc., Mellon family, Gulf Oil Corp., Aluminum Co. of America, and Koppers United Co., McCormick family. International Harvester Co. Hartford family, Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Co.; Harkness family, Standard Oil Co. (New Jersey), (Indiana) and (California), and Socony Vacuum Oil; Duke family, Duke Power Co. of America, Liggett and Meyers Tobacco. Pew family, Sun Oil Co.: Pitcairn family, Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co.; Clark family. Singer Manufacturing Co.; Reynolds family, R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.; Kress family, S. H. Kress and Co. Not one of these is a Jewish concern!

PAGE SIX +Jewish ncrkiiari FRIDAY. MAY 23, 1941 PLAIN TALK GOOD NAME by AL SEGAL Mr. Tennenbaum died recently. He was known affectionately as "Jake" all over town. The sign over his store read "Jake Tennenbaum." The conductors on the street saluted him by name if he happened to be on the sidewalk when they drove by. They know him as an old friend of their families. They had heard of his good name from their fathers who had heard from their fathers what an honorable, fair-dealing man Jake Tennenbaum was. Mr. Tennenbaum was thankfully proud of the name he had. It was not merely a name that was inherited; it was a name he had earned because a name is worth only what you make of it. His business had prospered through 55 years altogther on account of his good name whose repute the first generation of customers had handed down even to their children's children. It all went back more than 55 years—to the early eighties when the thousands from Russia began coming here. Mr. Tennenbaum was from the Lithuanian part—Suwalki. He was one of the last of those early immigrants in our town. Their lives were a lovely American epic: Sometimes their sons look back reverentially at the whole story. Their bitter struggle for a foothold among strangers. Their brave, toilsome way in a new world. The poverty of their purses but the richness of their hearts. The first thing they did was to rent a store room for a synagogue. Torah was all they had. It was in their hearts. Their unremitting devotion to their families still in Europe. Of every hard-earned dollar the larger portion was saved to bring them over. The home was ready for them when they came —a few rooms, furniture all paid for, too. A few rooms upstairs in a tenement house. It was like heaven, after everything. Heaven earned by toil, sweat and pain. There are only a few left in our town of those pioneers. They aie people in their late seventies and eighties. In the sunlight, on their porches, they sit these spring mornings thankful for the way things turned out for them. Their work had made them moderately prosperous and they had lived to see their children respected people in the city. They had rendered unto God what was due Him. too. Their synagogues were splendid edifices and it was all right that some of them still carried mortgages. The mortgages would be handed down to the children and it was good that the children would have burdens to carry and to labor against. It wasn't good to make things too easy for the children. The cheder they had founded for their children in a tenement house room had become a great bureau of Jewish education. Old Mr. Schochet who was the first teacher had been succeeded (CONTINUED ON PAGE 7) L MERCHANTS REASONABLE RATES CONFIDENTIAL WHOLESALERS DO YOU NEED IMMEDIATE CASH?

Tobin. candidate for Miami Beach Council, has dug into the financial report of the city and according to his statement, finds that is is possible for Miami Beach to construct and operate a Municipal Hospital, not only avoiding any possibility of deficit but by his figures can show that such an institution will return a handsome profit. At the end of the last fiscal period, he stated, there was in the current fund a surplus of more than S580.000 of which more than S340.000 was in cash. From investigation it has been found that a fully equipped one hundred bed hospital would cost no more than S300.000 and possibly less. With the new law just passed empowering the county to levy an additional tax for hospitalization, the Beach is faced with the prospect of paying out annually the sum of SIOO.OOO to the county. This sum will be returned to our City only if there exists a Municipal Hospital. Together with approximately $30.000 given each year to St. Francis" Hospital, there is a fund of S130.000 for operating expenses even before the doors are open. It is therefore logical to suppose that such an institution would be operated at a profit, considering the small percentage of charitv cases it would be called upon to serve, compared to other communities of like size. It may appear to some that inasmuch as the council had already taken so-called favorable action, he further stated, the hospital question was no longer am connected with no political group or clique and that I have no axes to grind, asking only the privilege of serving as a true representative of the people.' BEN COHEN Ben Cohen, candidate for Miami Beach Council, states he is well-known to readers of the Jewish Floridian. He has offered himself to the voters of Miami Beach on an eight-point platform calling for a permanent committee of councilmen to meet regularly with hotel and apartment house owners, more police and y. m.

The Jews, who came to Paris from Poland, Austria and Czechoslovakia, were forcibly taken from their homes during the night and taken to special assembly centers. The seized Jews were given no time to collect their clothing or other personal effects. Members of their families were instructed by the Gestapo to bring clothes, bedding, toilet articles and food sufficient for 24 hours to the assembly centers. Many of the men taken in the round-up were heads of families. It has become established Nazi policy to organize special labor gangs for Jews in occupied countries to repair and reconstruct roads and bridges destroyed during the Nazi air raids and bombardments which preceded the occupation.

Symbolic of the very ideal wars are now waged over and the lack of which has created conditions unbelievable, Federation in its very name conveys unity, and cooperation, essentials of community progress. Instrumental in its organization, a fact we are justly proud of, we have watched it grow from the incubator stage into adolescence. Like all other new ideas and community innovations, Federation had its trials and tribulations, its believers and doubters. We have watched it grow into the stage where it became impossible for communal-minded individuals to devote sufficient time and attention to the organization that it merits and must have to insure its successful continuance. Its existence has not been a bed of roses, and each successive year as the community grew, saw its difficulties and problems mounting. Federation is now at what may be termed the crossroads. Its directors have been elected and appointed. This coming week from among this group we select officers. What now faces them is the major responsibility of selecting an executive director, now a vital and important cog in the organization. Upon this choice, we firmly believe lies a good portion of not only Federation's progress and future but of the community's future. The scope of Federation has broadened from that of solely a fund-raising institution as it was at its inception to that of a coordinating center of the community's activities and its usefullness is unlimited. It is both necessary and urgent that the leadership of Federation select a man that is professionally trained, one that is truly experienced in campaigns, community coordination and civic planning and allow him to truly be executive director in the full sense. The field of social endeavor today has become a science. In order to survive in this field, a course of training with years of experience similar to that of the medical profession is necessary, to become successful. Other local organizations, have trained executives in charge of the work and as can easily be ascertained we owe to them much of their success. A further search will also show the comparison of those groups not having trained directors. To that end the community must demand and we urge strongly the powers of Federation to carefully consider their selection and under no circumstances can they or the community which they represent afford to bring to Miami to become executive director of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation anyone other than a trained, professional, competent, and experienced individual who will insure the successful future of Federation and the brilliant potentialities of our community.

Guest Columnist Pinch hitting for Milton Friedman, your regular columnist, is not an easy task. Milton has acquired an inimitable style, and to attempt to make this column as interesting as his. would be futile on my part. However, I shall do the best, because Milton asked me, before leaving Washington for home, to do this column for him today. As the convention effects are gradually wearing off, our B'nai B'rith members are starting on their usual serious program for the Lodge. I am glad to announce that last night, at the Miami Woman's Club, one of the outstanding programs ever held by Sholem Lodge was conducted. The principal speaker was Miss Merritt. Dean of Women at the Miami University. Miss Merritt. speaking before the combined group of the Lodge and the Ladies Auxiliary thanked the members for their interest shown in student work at the University. She said that the authorities of the University are only too eager to cooperate when such an interest is shown in behalf of the young men and Women. Mrs. Maurice Grossman, in introducing Miss Merritt. stated that the Auxiliary planned as its project the establishment of a College Mother's Club, the purpose of which is to show home hospitality to the girls at Miami University. Miss Merritt thought this project wonderful and agreed to do everything possible to help. The feature of the evening were musical selections by students from the University. Taking part were: Florence Geschwind. cello; Daniel Gordon, piano; Ben Lewkowitz, violin. These students played so admirably that they won the unanimous acclaim of everyone present. Convention Highlights Reported at Meeting After opening the meeting last evening, Brother Abe Aronovitz, president, called on various members for their impressions of the convention. It was very interesting to get a cross section of opinions of the convention from experts such as Brothers Ike Levin. Elry Stone. Walter Kovner. Kenneth Oka and Sol Goldstrom. While each one gave different impressions, the consensus of opinfon was that it was one of the outstanding conventions ever held. Box Supper at Shelborne Hotel May 27 Mrs. Joseph A. Berman and Mrs. Joseph Bermann, co-chairmen, announced that the Ladies Auxiliary will give a Box Supper at the Shelborne Hotel, Miami Beach, on Tuesday evening, May 27. The price of admission is only 25c. The ladies are requested to prepare a box supper for two. The boxes will be sold to the highest bidder, and the gentleman buying the box will have supper with the lady preparing the box. Many surprizes are in store for that evening. There will also be games and dancing.

PALESTINE JEWS L New York (WNS)—Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine and of the World Zionist Organization, declared that in the face of the Arab revolt in Iraq, Vichy's surrender to the Nazis, and Arab defections in Syria, the Jews of Palestine remain the most loyal bulwark for democracy in the "Near Eastern field of intrigue and outright hostility." Speaking before more than 4.000 persons in Carnegie Hall. Dr. Weizmann urged the British government to arm the Jewish population of Palestine to enable them to defend themselves and to render effective aid in the struggle for democracy. He pointed out that despite the fact that the interests of the Jews had been sacrificed by a British appeasement policy toward the Arabs, the Jewish community of Palestine rallied to Britain's side as soon as she found herself confronted by war. "I am confident," he said, "that the Jews in Palestine and the British would rather die fighting than be enslaved like France. There is indestructible hope in me that we shall survive this storm. We have got to make up our minds that we will have to rebuild what might be destroyed. We shall build Palestine with you or without you and we shall build it again." By NAZI GESTAPO London (WNS)—A scandal involving a number of high officials in the Nazified Slovakian government, who sequestered for their own use $1,000,000 worth of jewelry confiscated by the government from Jews, was hushed up by Nazi Gestapo agents to prevent public demonstrations, according to reports received in Czechoslovakian circles here. Following the confiscation of the jewelry from Jewish merchants the government announced that the valuables had been placed in a special vault in the government bank in Slovakia. The gems allegedly were to finance a relief program for the country's poor. Recently, wives of several government officials appeared in public wearing jewels which were known to be confiscated from the Jews. Among the ladies wearing the confiscated gem were the wives of the vice-premier and the interior minister. The Gestapo investigation uncovered facts implicating so many high government officials that it was found necessary to bury the whole scandaL Since the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia, Jewish-owned goods, valued at four billion kronen, have been seized by the government.

L GIVEN 10 Marseille (WNS)—The American State Department has given its approval of a collective visa for 100 refugee children, paving the way for the emigration to the United States of 100 inmates of a special children's concentration camp. The task of selecting the children to go to the United States was supervised by representatives of the American Friends Service Committee (Quakers) and of the Ose, Jewish health society. The departure of the young refugees for America is contingent on the ability to locate steamship accomodations for them.

He began as a peddler with a large pack on his back. Old people all over town remembered him from that time, especially the Irish up on Mt. Adams. Mt. Adams was the first place he went to when he started out with his peddler's pack. Old people said proudly yes, they knew Jake when he was a peddler and came to their houses with his big bundle. They knew him as an honorable man who always dealt fairly with them; a kindly friend. They were happy as for some kinsman making good when they heard, in the year 1886, that Jake Tennenbaum had opened a furniture store. They said Jake dserved to get along so well, considering how square he had always been. They followed him to his store. They said they knew they would always be treated right by Jake. They told their children. When their children were getting ready to be married they went to Jake's store. They called him Uncle Jake. Mr. Tennenbaum was always in business in the same place.

He was a tradition and people went to Jake's sentimentally, as they liked to go to Trinity Church, farther down the street, long after they had moved out of the neighborhood. Mr. Tennenbaum became poignantly aware of his many years when the grandchildren of the Gradys, the Bradys and the O'Briens began coming to his store to buy the things 'or their own households. "You know my grandfather. He was Mr. Grady. He always spoke of you as Jake." Grady's granddaughter! Yes, he knew Grady from the time he was a peddler. Up there on the hill. Grady was one of the first people he called on with his pack. Grady was friendly to him, a stranger. A good man, Grady. The fifty years had passed and he, Jake Tennenbaum, had been held in honor from the time of his first customers even unto now. As far back as that "Yes, your grandfather Grady ..." That was something to have lived for—to earn his good name, he thought. He was already along in his seventies. His short, stocky figure now moved about more slowly in his familiar scene. He gave the impression of a man who had added up his life, good and sorrow, and was content with the sum of it. He had been faithful in all things, to God as to men.
