NEXT WEDNESDAY
Final arrangements were made
yesterday for a United Service
Organization's tag day next Wed-
nesday, it was announced by E.
E, Seiler, campaign manager.
Mrs. James A. Dunn was ap-
pointed tag day chairman at a
meeting in USO headquarters
Wednesday. She is contacting
club women and civic leaders to
participate in the program.
USO. now conducting a drive
for funds as part of the national
campaign to raise money to carry
on the recreation program for the
selectees, is composed of the Sal-
vation Army, Young Men's Chris-
tian Association, Young Women's
Christian Association, the Jewish
Welfare Board, National Catholic
Community Service, and National
Travelers Aid Association.
Many Jewish organizations of
Greater Miami have made con-
tributions, including the Young
Men's Hebrew Association, B'nai
B'rith. Hadassah, American Jew-
ish Congress. The groups have
also appointed committees to aid
in the sale of USO certificates
and the B'nai B'rith Ladies Aux-
iliary is sponsoring with the as-
sistance of other organizations a
theatre benefit at the Wometco
Theatres the week of July 6-12.
The USO is designed to help
build a strong morale for the
military forces in training. It is
our personal duty to join the
army in back of the army' to as-
sist the six national organiza-
tions who will operate the re-
creational clubs built by the gov-
ernment in the cities adjacent to
the training camps throughout
the nation," Ernie Seiler, volun-
teer chairman of the campaign
stated. "This is a big job and
President Roosevelt said that this
son-ice is made to order for the
USO. You personally can do your
part by purchasing a certificate
representing a 'bundle' of re-
creation from one dollar up. The
average contribution to date has
approximated five dollars per
person and the response is indic-
ative of the patriotic fervor that
exists in this country."
C. C. A. R. PRESIDENT HAS
PRAISE FOR ROOSEVELT
Atlantic City (WNS)Con-
fidence in the leadership of
President Roosevelt in the
world crisis, and a call to the
Jews of this country to adopt
the 'strategy of boldness' in
working toward spiritual
goals, keynoted the presiden-
tial message delivered by
Rabbi Emil W. Leipziger of
New Orleans to the opening
session of the 52nd annual
meeting of the Central Con-
ference of American Rabbis.
More than 200 Rabbis, here
from all parts of the United
States for the convention,
heard their president refer to
four previous Atlantic City
meetings of the Conference
with the warning "Never have
we foregathered here in a
more fateful hour than this
an hour whose grave portents
are mocked by the gayeties
and carefree leisure of this
popular resort." The Rabbi al-
to cited the spiritual dilemmas
in which religious leaders of
today find themselves.
ASK FOR POLICE
PROTECTION FOR
OMIT REFERENCE TO JEWS
IN MIDDLE EASTERN TALKS
London (Palcor) The fact that
official British and Free French
spokesmen such as Foreign Sec-
retary Anthony Eden and Gen-
eral Georges Catroux have thus
far omitted all reference to the
future of the Jews of Palestine
n their various pronouncements
eoncerning the disposition of
Middle Eastern territories after
the war was sharply criticized
by Berl Locker, noted Zionist La-
bor leader.
As the principal speaker ad-
dressing the Second Conference
f Czechoslovak ian Zionists now
residing in London. Mr. Locker
went on to deal in detail with
be general Zionist situation.
A resolution supporting "the cre-
at'on of a united Zionist front
wth Zionists of.all Continental
countries now in Britain, irre-
spective of parties," was heartily
endorsed by the 120 representa-
tives attending the conference.
held under the chairmanship of
Dr M. AraiL
New York (WNS)Ulric Bell,
executive committee chairman of
the Fight for Freedom, asked
Mayor LaGuardia for more ade-
quate police protection after
members of the Nazi Bund and
the Christian Mobilizers broke
up a street corner meeting spon-
sored by the Fight for Freedom
and pushed two women speakers
off the speaking platform.
Mr. Bell charged that the Nazi
sympathizers threatened t() ov-
erturn an automobile in which
the two women sought refuge
and began list fights with fol-
lowers of the Fight for Freedom.
The meeting was protected by
one policeman who was unable to
cope with the rowdies, it was
said.
Spokesmen for the organiza-
tion reported that the trouble
started when Mrs. Galdys Cragin,
one of the two women speakers,
pointed out that Charles A. Lind-
bergh had never returned the
medal given him by the Naz:
government. The Nazis in the
crowd shouted back: "What's the
matter with Hitler? Nothing"
In a telegram to Mayor La-
Guardia. Mr. Bell said: "We have
known for some time that pro-
Nazi groups intended to break up
our outdopr speaking, and we be-
lieve that this is the beginning of
a planned campaign.
"Could three witnesses, one of
our officers and myself come to
discuss with you the question of
more adequate police protection
from this organized Hitler move-
ment? The policeman on th^- job
did an admirable job but he was
far outnumbered by the hood-
lums who came down from York-
ville."
"BOMB" TURNS OUT TO
HAVE BEEN AN AIRPLANE
Haifa (Palcor)Examination of
a large bomb crater near this
city disclosed the fact that what
was first believed to have been
a heavy bomb was actually an
enemy plane which had crashed
from anti-aircraft battery here.
! JOYFUL
THAT DAMASCUS
IN ALLIED HANDS
Jerusalem (WNS)A feeling
of joy swept the country follow-
| ing the announcement that Da-
mascus had fallen to the British
and Free French forces who
were reported penetrating even
further into Vichy-ruled Syria
and Lebanon.
While the British Free French
triumph in Syria eliminated for
the present time any danger of a
Nazi invasion of Palestine, Brit-
ish and Jewish leaders pressed
their national defense program
to prepare the country for all
eventualities.
General Blarney, commander of
the British troops in Palestine,
arrived in Tel Aviv where he
conferred with Mayor Israel Ro-
kach on the defense preparations
of the All-Jewish city. It was
understood that new precautions
will be taken as a result of the
conference.
Meanwhile, the Chief Rabbin-
ate proclaimed a three-day pe-
riod of prayers and supplications.
The three-day prayers will come
to an end with a day-long fast.
Hundreds of Jews from Tel Aviv
and Haifa, chief targets of re-
cent enemy air raids, made a pil-
grimage to the Failing Wall here
to offer special prayers.
In Haifa it was announced thut
special uniforms and steel hel-
mets will be issued to members
of the Chevra Kadisha (burial
society) for use during air-raids.
Jewish leaders continued to call
for more volunteers to serve
with Jewish units in the British
army. Moshe Shertok, urging
Palestine's Jewish youth to en-
list, reported that 8.900 young
Palestinine Jews were now serv-
ing with the British forces, in-
cluding 70 officers, three of them
captains. The head of the Jew-
ish Agency's political department
disclosed that 1,100 Jewish sol-
diers had been captured during
the war in Greece and were at
present interned under Italian
supervision.
The recruiting campaign was
spurred also by Dr. Judah L.
Magnes. president of the Hebrew

AMERICA IS AGAINST JEWS
SAYS NAZI RADIO REPORTS
U. I. A. EXECUTIVES MEET
IN SPECIAL CONFERENCE
New York (WNS)An ex-
traordinary conference of the
officers and members of the
executive committee of the
United Jewish Appeal for
Refugees, Overseas Needs and
Palestine will be held on Mon-
day. June 30th. to study the
results of the first six months
of the unified campaign in
behalf of the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee, the United
Palestine Appeal and the Na-
tional Refugee Service, and to
consider plans for the broad-
ening of campaign operations
to meet all possible eventuali-
ties in the deepening war crisis
in Europe, Palestine and the
United States, it was an-
nounced.
Reports from hundreds of
communities which have al-
ready completed campaigns
and scores of others which are
preparing to launch drives in
the second half of 1941 will
be discussed and analyzed with
a view to stimulating Amer-
ican Jewry in these drives.
HITLER BLAMES
London (WNS)Rejecting the
American state department's con-
tention that the order barring
entry to the United States of
refugees with close relatives in
the totalitarian country was made
necessary by the fact that Ger-
many was compelling refugees
in America to engage in subver-
sive activities by threatening re-
prisals against their relatives in
the Reich, the Nazi radio offered
its own version of the motivation
behind the order.
The American order was aimed
primarily at Jews, the Nazi
spokesman said, which is a sign
that America has turned against
the Jews. The Nazi declared that
America was willing to accept the
wealthy German-Jewish refugees
who went to the United States
in the first years following Hit-
ler's escendancy to power, but is
refusing to admit refugees now.
because, for the most part, they
are poor.
NAZIS
TO
JEWS TO SAHARA
Stockholm (WNS)Partial li-
quidation of the "Jewish prob-
lem" in Germany and Nazi-occu-
pied countries by sending 100,000
Jews as forced laborers to the
Sahara desert was decided upon
at a meeting in Dresden of Nazi
colonial authorities, it was re-
ported on good authority.
An announcement was made at
the meeting of Nazi chiefs, it was
learned, that the Nazi govern-
ment is now conducting negotia-
tions with the Vichy government
in unoccupied France for the
"colonization in the African des-
ert of the 100,000 Jews.
The anti-Semitic General von
Epp told the Nazi chieftains that
the Jews would be sent as draft-
ed laborers to build a railway and
military roads in the desert. Nazi
technicians will be sent along to
supervise the job. Although a
number of Jews have already
been sent to the African desert,
the present plan calls for the op-
eration of the scheme on a huge
scale.
Competent sources here de-
clared that the decision to send
the 100.000 Jews to work in the
Sahara desert was tantamount to
a death sentence. Accustomed to
a European climate, the German
Jews will find the blazing heat
of the desert unbearable, these
sources said.
This report followed on the
heels of a dispatch from Vichy
stating that the Vichy govern-
ment has ordered the construc-
tion of concentration camps in
French North Africa preparatory
to the shipment there of all for-
eign Jews living in unoccupied
France.
BOLSHEVISTS
London (WNS)The tune re-
mained the same but one word
in the script was changed when
Adolf Hitler, informing the Ger-
man people that the Nazi Army
had been hurled against Soviet
Russia, attributed the new devel-
opment in the rapidly-expandine.
war to the "Jewish Bolshevist'
rulers in Moscow, it was notec1
here.
Hitler, who has "justified" a I.1
his previous invasions of friendly
countries in the past by blaming
the machinations of "Jewish
Capitalists," dropped the word
"Capitalist" from his war proc-
lamation against Russia and sub-
stituted the word "Bolshevist" in
referring to the Jews.
In an address replete with the
usual anti Jewish epithets, the
Nazi Fuehrer charged that the
military venture against Russia,
almost two years after both coun-
tries signed a nonagreFsion pact
which rocked the wo Id, was
made necessary because "for
over 10 years Jewish Bolshevist
rulers had been endeavoring from
Moscow to set not only Germany
but all Europe aflame."
"At no time ever did Germany
attempt to carry her National
Socialist Weltanschauung into
Russia." Hitler stated, "but on
the contrary, Jewish Bolshevist
rulers in Moscow unswervingly
endeavored to foist their domina-
tion upon us and other European
peoples, not only by ideological
means but above all with military
force."
Reiterating his peaceful inten-
tions. Hitler recalled that he had
made a peace offer to the Allied
countries after his conquest of
Poland which was refused, he
said, "owing to the efforts of
international and Jewish war-
mongers."
Hitler said that he had agreed
to guarantee the protection of
Rumania "with a heavy heart,
principally because when' the
German Reich gives guarantee
that means it also abides by it.
We are neither Englishmen nor
Jews."
RURAL PROPERTY TAX IS
REMITTED FOR YEAR 1940-41
Jerusalem (Palcor)The Pal-
estine government announced that
rural property tax on citrus grove
land had been repealed for the
fiscal year of April 1, 1940 to
March 31, 1941 by order of the
High Commissioner in Council.
(CONTINUED ON PAGE 4)
ANTI-JEWISH AGITATION" IS
REPORTED AS NAZI LEVER
New York (Palcor)Anti-Jew-
ish agitation is a principal wea-
pon being used by the Nazis in
winning Arabs to the pro-Axis
powers, it is reported by The As-
sociated Press in a dispatch from
Ankara.
The British are alleged by the
Nazis to be preparing to open
Syria and Iraq to Jewish colon-
ization. According to the AP
story, the Nazis are hammering
away at the theme that "Jewish
banking interests in New York
forced a guarantee from the Brit-
ish government of a great Jew-
ish homeland in return for sup-
porting United States interven-
tion in the war."
Apparently the Nazis take it
for granted that the Arabs are
isolated from all the world and
are not familiar with the opposi-
tion of such "Jewish bankers" as
may exist to the establishment of
the, Jewish National Home in
Palestine.

Jerusalem (Palcor)It can now
be revealed that it was a group
of fifty chalutzim who prepared
the way for the Imperial and
Free French invasion of Syria.
Their feet were the first to step
on soil which the British charged
had become an invasion base for
the Nazis.
Fifty young Jews taken from
the settlements of northern Gali-
lee and familiar with the rocky,
mountainous terrain were given
the assignment of reconnaisance
and of hacking a road through
barbed-wire entanglements.
Due to a policy of avoiding ref-
erence in official communiques
to the role played by Jews in
the British forces, this signifi-
cant story of the Jewish role in
helping to win Syria has not been
publicized.

Villifiers of the Talmud
The un-American propagandists
in this country have discovered
the Talmud!
In community alter community
during the past few months there
has bobbed up an anti-Semitic
leaflet called "Why are Jews
Persecuted for their Religion?",
listing a number of citations, sup-
posedly from the Talmud, to
prove"' that immortality and
dishonesty arc specifically Jew-
ish attributes.
Some days ago this piece of
villification was distributed in the
vicinity of the Columbus Hotel.
Its prior source is the so-called
Nationalist Press Association, op-
erating in the Yorkville section of
jNcw York City. The "Associa-
tion," a one-man organization,
; consists cf an opportunist who
j doubtless finds the hate-baiting
| racket lucrative. We have
j learned that copies of the poison
I pen leaflets now are being printed
by a local printing shop for)
Greater Miami circulation.
The compiler of these garbled
misquotations has the gall to
urge that the readers keep in
mind throughout the reading of
"this bit of historical evidence,"
as he calls it, the following ques-
tion: "Is this the reason the Jews
have been disliked and driven
out of every nation that ever
existed down to the present
time?" There follows then a re-
hearsal of numerous charges
against Jews, supposedly taken
from Jewish sources and "ac-
companied by the chapter and
verse or the page of the book
from which it was taken." daring
"any rabbi or recognized Jewish
authority to disprove any state-
ment contained in this pam-
phlet."
5 worth-knowing reasons for the
BIG FORD SALES JUMP
IN 1941!
"VVTHY has this year's Ford scored one of the
** biggest sales gains over the previous year in
all Ford history? Why "did its sales this year start to
boom so far in advance of the usual spring car-
buying season? The answer's just that good news
travels fast, that buyers are discovering the new
1941 advantages that only a Ford gives you at the
price, that buyers are switching to die greatest Ford
ever built to get the things it gives.
CHECK THE ROOM I Greater actual passenger space
than anything else in its field this year! Seals actually
voider than in some of the highest priced 1941 cars!
TRY THE RIDE I There's a new Ford ride this year and
it's really a bita ride re-engineered throughout. from
softer, slower-acting springs to new and far more rigid
frame.

The Facts
Now what are the facts? Jew-
ish citizens of Miami have asked
us to state them. However, let's
not rely upon a Jewish authority,
but examine instead the com-
ments of a non-Jewish group.
Take, for example, the observa-
tions of the Humanity Guild of
New York. After studying the
details of the pamphlet, which
circulated in New York, the Guild
supplied the following facts:
"... without exception, the
references either do not exist at
all or are so perverted as to
make them say exactly the op-
posite of what their authors in-
tended them to say.
The fashion just now being
to play up the Nazi 'race-defile-
menf accusation against the
Jew. the compiler of this scurril-
ous pamphlet quotes a few Jew-
ish sources in proof of its valid-
ity. -A Jew may misuse a non-
Jewess in her state of unbelief,'
is quoted, and Maimonides' Yad-
Hazakah, 2:2, is given as refer-
ence. Now, this reference does
not exist at all, and what Mai-
monides does say elsewhere on
the subject of misusing a woman
is exactly the opposite of what
the non-existent reference was
supposed to imply. For this phil-
osopher and codifier distinctly
and specifically prohibits all ex-
tra-marital relations with a wo-
man, be she Jew or Gentile.
Mutilations of the Text
Similarly, the quotation, al-
j legedly from Aboda-Zara 37a,
: saying that 'a Gentile girl who is
I three years old can be violated"
is at once a falsification and a
fabrication. The truth about the
! statement, absurd enough on the
I face of it even if it were ever
made, is that, in mutilated form,
it was deliberately taken from a
wholly puritanic discussion, with
the malicious design of giving it
a significance it was never in-
tended to have. The consensus
of opinion of the rabbis of that
group on sex relationship is that
a man should never allow him-
self to be closeted with a woman
even if there be no premeditated
intentions between them. Even
a young girl should be shunned,
particularly the heathen girls
who, as it was held in those an-
cient days, mature very early.
And it was in this connection that
one of the groupa certain Ra-
binaprobably more fanatically
puritan than the rest, observed
that the daughter of a heathen
(not Gentile, but heathen) should
be regarded as a woman even
at the early age of three and con-
sequently should not he closeted
with.
That much about the 'truth' in
connection with the charge of
race-defilement.
The Talmud on Business Ethics
In connection with the second
major charge against the Jews,
that their law permits them to
cheat and overreach the Gentile
in business, copious references are
drawn by the libcler on Hoshen
Misphat, the orthodox Jewish
authority on civil law since the
latter part of the XVI century.
Here, too, the exact paragraphs
are given, to impress the reader
with the veracity of the allega-
tion.
Accordingly, the Gentiles are
informed that whereas the Jews
are strictly forbidden to cheat
their own, they are not forbidden
to cheat Gentiles, and it is even
a crime to return to them what
they have been cheated of.
Thus, Paragraph 227 of the Ho-
shen-Mishpat is supposed to say
literally: 'The Jew Is permitted
to cheat a Goy, and he is not per-
mitted to return him what he
cheated him of. Because the
Bible says: Thou shalt not cheat
thy next brother," but the non-
Jews are not our brethern .'
Now. the whole content of
I No. 227 is a fabrication. What
Hoshen-Mishpat does say on the
subject of cheating is that 'it is
forbidden t0 deceive people in
purchase and sale, or even to
steal their thoughts: If, for ex-
ample, there is a defect in the
wares, the seller must apprise
the buyer of it, and it is all one
whether the purchaser is a Jew
or non-Jew.'
Technique of Succesaful Lying
Can people be as brazen as
that? They can, when they are
by nature cruel and bent on evil.
This particular pamphleteer
makes an adroit attempt at face-
saving by informing the reader
that 'These passages have been
translated from the original He-
brew by the Courts of France,
causing the King of France to
order all copies of the Talmud
to be burned.' When? As far
back as 1489. The irony of it is
that in thus referring to a trans-
lation 'from the original Hebrew'
made some five centuries ago as
evidence of the subversive
teachings of the Talmud, the
present day maligners of the
Jewish people are following out
the advice of the Talmud itself
in the subject of successful ly-
ing. 'He who would make false-
hood sound true should make
his testimony inaccessible to
verification,' advises a Talmudic
rabbi sarcastically, and it is being
followed'out by our pamphleteer
in all hypocritical earnestness.
Fortunately for the Jews and
for all lovers of truth, while the
documentary records of the Court
of France dating from the fif-
teenth century are indeed some-
what inaccessible to us. the Tal-
mud itself, from which the trans-
lation 'from the original Hebrew'
was then made, is quite accessible
to us today, and a simple com-
parison between the alleged
translation and the original text
is sufficient to give the lie to
the traducers."
BLUE SHIRTS TO
ENFORCE
JOAN BENNETT. FRANCHOT
TONE CO-STAR IN COMEDY
Joan Bennett hilariously goes
to work, both literally and fi-
guratively, on Wall Street in the
delightful comedy. "She Knew
All The Answers" which starts
Saturday, June 28th at the Lin-
coln and Miami Theatres. With
Franchot Tone co-starred as a
Wall Street broker who doesn't
like show girls, "She Knew All
The Answers" is one of the gay-
est, giddiest and grandest love- j
and-laugh comedies of the year, j
Miss Bennett appears as a i
night club star, who wants to [
marry a millionaire playboy.
Tone, the boy's guardian, abso-
lutely forbids the marriage, even |
though he doesn't know the girl
at all.
The supporting cast includes |
John Hubbard, as the playboy,
Eve Arden, as Joan's wise-crack-
ing roomate and William Tracy,
as a love-smitten office boy.
Vichy (WNS)Followers of the
violently anti-Semitic Pierre La-
val voted at their last party con-
ference to organize a "Blue-
Shirt" battalion, along the lines
of the Nazi "Brown Shirts," to
supervise the enforcement of
anti-Jewish legislation in occu-
pied France, it was reported here.
The decision to establish a
"Blue Shirt" division was taken
after speakers at the party con-
clave condemned so-called len-
iencies in the enforcement of the
anti-Jewish regulations and the
public's apparent apathy to the
Nazi-sponsored anti-Jewish pro-
gram.
While the duties of the newly-
organized "Blue Shirts" were not
made clear, it was widely be-
lieved that they would enforce a
boycott of Jewish-owned shops in
the same manner that the "Brown
Shirts" in Germany prevented
customers from entering Jewish-
owned stores.
The "Blue Shirts" will be user!
also, it was learned, to terrorize
French opponents of further col-
laboration between Germany and
France. The unwillingness on
the part of the French people in
the occupied area to cooperate
with Nazi authorities has been a
source of bitter irritation to the
Nazis.
Meanwhile, a drive to raise
120,000 francs to meet the relief
budget of Jewish organizations
in France was voted at a meet-
ing of the Central Coordinating
Relief Committee held in Mar-
seilles. Chief Rabbi Issaye
Schwartz presided at the meeting
which was attended by represen-
tatives of the Joint Distiibution
Committee, HIAS-ICA Emigra-
tion Association, ORT-OZE and
other relief organizations.
Life for Jews in the unoccu-
pied area has become increasing-
ly difficult with the enforcement
of the new anti-Jewish laws an-
nounced recently by Xavier Val-
lat, commissioner for Jewish Af-
fairs. Jews are being forced out
of their jobs at an alarming rate.
Mass arrests of foreign Jews and
their concentration in special po-
lice-supervised areas are contin-
uing.

VOLUME 14
NUMBER 26
THE GERMAN INVASION OF RUSSIA
The war being waged by Hitler against Soviet Russia adds
i.ve million more Jews to those directly affected by the war. In
the Ukraine alonein cities like Odessa K;ev and Zhitomir,
which the Nazis attacked ::c:v. the air on the very first day of
the new warthere are some three million lews. Not to speak
of Galicia. Bessarabia Bukovir.a White Russia and the Baltic
countries, which are in the :i:s: line of fire. In tnese territories
there are about two million Jews a majority of whom had tasted
the war in 1939 when the Nazis bombed Poland.
Trapped in Soviet Lithuania are many thousands of Jews
who risked their lives to escape from Nazi Poland, seeking to
find their way to the American continent since Moscow was
issuing transit visas to Polish citizens emigrating oversaes.
Now these Jews will again fall into Nazi hands, since it can be
taken for granted that the Baltic countries, being so close to
the German frontier will be occupied by Germany.
Ir. Soviet-held Galicia there cae 1,500.000 Jews, trembling
in fear of falling under Nazi occupation and sharing the fate of
their relatives who are now starving in the ghettos of Nazi-
cdministered Poland, the same is true of the Jews of Bessarabia
and Bukovina.
Much worse, however, is the situation of the Jews in the
Ukraine and White Russia. These millions have, since the fall
of Czarist regime, enjoyed full equality. Anti-Semitism is for-
bidden by law in their territories. Should the Nazi army succeed
in setting foot on Ukranian soil, the Jews will be the first to
suffer. Ukranian anti-Semites who stimulated the massacres
of Jews during the Petlura regime some 23 years ago, and who
were since then maintained all the time "in exile" by Germany,
will now be brought back to the Ukraine by the Nazis to resume
'.heir bloody massacres of the Jewish population under various
nationalistic slogans prepared by the Nazi propaganda machine
ir. Berlin.
It can be taken for granted that Hitler has already prepared
a Ukranian government" to serve his purposes. It is known
that Hetman Skoropadski. whom the Germans proclaimed ruler
of Ukraine in the First World War, has been nursed by Hitler all
the time since the Nazis came to power, as probable head of
a liberated Ukraine. Skoropadski and his star! have made
their residence in Cracow, in preparation for the day when the
Nazis will invade the Ukraine. It is to be hoped that this day
will never come. The horrible anti-Jewish pogroms of some
twenty years ago in the Ukraine are still fresh in the memories
d many Jews in the entire world.
Rational Defense Leaders to Address Convention
Of Aleph Zadik Ale ph. B'nai B'rith Youth I nit
BOLSHEVISTS
(CONTINUED FROM PAOE 1)
Ho indicated that the war
against Russia was precipitated
by the fact that "during the night
of June 17th to June 18th Russian
patrols again pentrated into the
Reich's territory and could only
be driven back after prolonged
firing. This has brought us to
the hour when it is necessary to
take steps against this plot de-
vised by the Jewish Anglo-Saxon
warmongers and equally the Jew-
ish rulers of the Bolshevist cen-
ter in Moscow."
About 1.500.000 Jews are in
Soviet-occupied Pdland. which
is under constant Nazi attack.
Included in this number are many-
Jews who fled from Nazi-oc-
cupied Poland to escape persecu-
tion and concentration camps.
Fear was expressed also for
the 2.000.000 Jews In Bessarabia
and northern Bukovina. areas
ceded to Russia by Rumania with
the approval of the Nazi govern-
ment. Combined Nazi and Ru-
manian troops have launched an
intensified drive to recover these
territories. The new battle line,
which stretches from the Baltic
to the Black Sea. has jeopardized
the 350.000 Jews in the Baltic
states, most of them in Soviet-
occupied Lithuania.
Hundreds were reported killed
ill Nazi air raids on Kiev. Zhite-
mir. Kaunas and Odessa, in
which there are large Jewish
populations.
The danger facing the Jews in
the new theatre of war was
stressed by Prof. Selig Brodetsky.
president of the Board of Depu-
ties of British Jews, who de-
clared at a meeting of the Board:
"Of course it is not for me or
anybody speaking in the name of
the board to express an opinion
on the great international issues
involved but I am afraid that
none of us can forget, or. I hope,
will forget that once again mil-
lions of Jews are involved in the
route taken by the armies and
that millions of Jews are in-
volved in danger over the possi-
bility of being overtaken by the
Nazi heel. I can only express
the hope that our brethren in
the western part of Soviet Russia
will escape the danger which
seems to threaten them."

down on why London isn't being bombed to dust Putting it
in a nutshell, Anne O'Hare McCormick says: "Every time the
Germans finish one offensive the intermission before the nevt

THIS AND THAT
By the time you read this you'll know more than we do
at this writing about the accuracy of the Great Fyramid's pro-
phecy concerning "the spiritual reawakening of the Anglo-
Saxon peoples," as one interpreter puts it, slated for June 25th
. But you'll be interested to know that one commentator sees
a hopeful sign in Hungary's firm adherence to the Axison
the grounds that in a thousand years of history Hungary has
never been on the winning side in any war Inside dopesters
insist that Uncle Sam's recent cracking down on the Nazi con-
sulates and other offices in this country was hastened by the
revelations of Gestapo ativities on these shores published by
the Friends of Democracy The commercial translation
bureaus hereabouts have solved the problem of what to do
with the "Heil Hitler" salutation that closes all letters from
Naziland these days They render it simply as "Yours
truly" Soon to be displayed in factories, offices, stores
and community centers throughout the country are two patriotic
posters executed by Harry Herschiield, the wittiest of cartoon-
ists and commentators The punch-line Harry has put or.
these posters is: "We didn't all come over on the same boat-
but we're all in the same boat now" .
ZION NOTES
Col. Josiah Wedgwood, who is now in this country, was al-
ways a great admirer of Vladimir Jabotinsky, and has con-
siderable sympathy for the Zionist Revisionist policy .But he
was prevailed upon by some Zionist die-hards not to appear
at a mass-meeting called by the American Friends of Palestine
an organization that supports the Revisionst claim for a Jewish
army ... As the Near Eastern war theatre spreads, moving
closer and closer to Palestine every day, life in Tel Aviv goes
on in quite normal fashion, we hear, with the exception that
the ration of sugar served with each glass of tea was cut to a
single lump Still, that must be a sign that things are getting
serious down there Why, by the way, didn't any of our
Jewish institutes or seminaries think of conferring an honorary
degree on Pierre van Paassen, for his consistent championinq
of the Jewish and Palestine causes? ... We don't, however,
think that s anythinq for the Zionists to braq about
SCREEN DEPT.
Yes, its true that certain South American movie producers
are flirting with the idea of letting the Nazis buy in on their pro-

NAZIS LAUNCH UKRANIAN
A N TI JEWISH CAMPAIGN
London (WNS> Close on the
heels of the Nazi proclamation of
war against Soviet Russia, the
Nazis unleashed a violent anti-
Jewish campaign aimed at the
Ukranian population of Russia
and set off a series of "spontan-
eous" anti-Jewish demonstra-
tions throughout Rumania. Ger-
many's ally in the war against
the "Soviet, it was reliably re-
ported here.
A Ukranian "Freedom Center"'
has been established in Berlin
for the purpose of organizing
Ukranians from the "Soviet Jew-
ish yoke." Prominent pro-Nazi
Ukranians. including a number
of old-time pogrom leaders, have
been placed in charge of the
"Freedom Center."
In a radio broadcast heard
throughout Europe, spokesmen
for the Nazi-inspired Ukranian
nationalist movement called for
mass pogroms against the Jews.

realization that their major ave-

a delegation of refugees visited-
the American Legation here to
appeal against the American
State Department's order barring
United States visas to refugees
with close relatives in the totali-
tarian countries of Europe.
The refugees, many of whom
face imprisonment or deportation
to Germany or Nazi-occupied
countries, were unable to see
Captain Roosevelt as they had
hoped but they were assured by
Hibbard, first secretary of the
Legation, that Captain Roosevelt
would be glad to bring their pe-
tition for a modification of the
new regulation to President
Roosevelt.
Meanwhile, reports from Gen-
eva, Japan, Stockholm and un-
occupied France revealed the des-
pair and feeling of hopelessness
which overtook Jewish refugees
in those countries. Jewish re-
lief officials here voiced the fear
that many Jewish refugees would
commit suicide when faced with
the prospect of returning into
the hands of Nazi Gestapo agents.
Jews in Nazi-occupied coun-
tries had been able to endure
their suffering, it was said, only
because they clung to the hope
that they would eventually be
able to escape to America. With
the United States now cut off
to them, relief officials declared,
many of them would give up their
fight to live.
Meanwhile, American refugee
organizations held a meeting to
review the consequences of the
new American ruling.

FRIDAY. JUNE 27. 1941
PORTUGUESE SHIP
BRINGS 132 CHILD
REFUGEES TO U.S.
New York (WNS)The small
Portuguese liner Mouzinhe ar-
rived here from Lisbon, with 734
passengers aboard, including 132
ehild refugees, most of them Jew-
ish, who embarked from the ship
singing the 'Star Spangled Ban-
ner" and cheering their new
home.
When the rescue ship left Lis-
bon there were 131 children
aboard but a baby at sea on Fri-
day. June 13th. raised the total.
The youngest refugee was born
to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Kaston.
Polish Jewish refugees. Mr. Kas-
ton. a violinist, fought with the
French Army in the Maginot
Line, was taken prisoner by the
Nazis, but managed to escape to
Lisbon where he rejoined his
wife.
For most of the children the
voyage from Lisbon marked the
end of suffering and persecution.
The young refugees come from
Germany. Austria. Poland. Ru-
mania. Czechoslovakia and
France. The children were main-
tained in Marseille by OSE. Jew-
ish health society, and cared for
in Portugal by the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee.
Included among the child refu-
gees were a number whose pa-
rents had been killed in Nazi
concentration camps. The pa-
rents of many others are still in-
terned in Nazi camps. Nine of
the children were detained at
Ellis Island because of minor
ailments. They were expected
to be released shortly.
One of the children. 13-year-
old Paul Weiss of Belgium, told
ship news reporters: "I have a
great joy to know that t am*in
America. But I cannot forget
that my mother is in Gurs." Gurs
is one of the most notorious in-
ternment camps in France.
Dr. Israel Chonski, a Polish
refugee, who cared for the chil-
dren during the trip, reported
that when the youngsters first
came to Lisbon they looked like
"tired old men and women, their
faces gray and pinched and their
spirits dulled." They gradually
began to brighten and show an
interest in their surroundings.
By the time the ship reached New
York, he said, they were shouting
and cheering.
Upon arrival here, the children
were placed in the custody of the
United States Committee for the
Care of European Children, which
has made arrangements to place
them in American homes.
Another refugee aboard the
ship was the 39-year-old Chief
! Rabbi Robert Serebrenik of Lux.
jemburg. who laughingly explain-
j ed to reporters how he forced
| the Nazi occupying authorities
of Luxemburg to continue paying
' him his regular government sal-
ary.
J. C. I. PLANNING JEWISH
POST WAR REBUILDING
New York (WNS)Dr. Stephen
S. Wise, president of the Ameri-
can Jewish Congress and chair-
man of the executive committee |
of the World Jewish Congress,:
announced the formation of the
Institue of Jewish Affairs, a non-
political scientific institute, under
the auspices of the two organiza-
tions.
Declaring that the Jewish
people face a crisis unparalleled
in its history, "with one out of ]
every four Jews in the world the
victim of Nazi and Fascist op- i
pression," Dr. Wise explained the
Institute would prepare a brief;
"on the basis of which four mil-'
lion Jews may be restored to;
normal life at the end of the war.,
and means devised to prevent a!
recurrence of what has taken
place, and to insure security in
the future."
LEADERS
ASK ACCEPTANCE
JEWISH REFUGEES
London (W N S)Leaders of
Jewish organizations, including
the Board of Jewish Deputies
and the Anglo-Jewish Associa-
tion, conferred here following
confirmation from Washington
of the order forbidding Ameri-
can consulates in Europe to issue
American visas to refugees with
close relatives in Germany and
Nazi-occupied territories. Italy
and Russia.
Jewish leaders opened prelim-
inary discussions with the Lon-
don representatives of Canada.
New Zealand and Australia, urg-
ing them to inform their respec-
tive governments of the dangers
confronting refugees, stranded in
Lisbon. Japan and elsewhere. A
memorandum will be presented
shortly to the governments of
these countries, appealing for ad-
mission to Canada. New Zealand
and Australia of Jewish refugees
who will otherwise be imprisoned
or sent back to Germany.
At the same time, officials of
Jewish organizations issued an
appeal to South American coun-
tries. It was feared in Jewish
circles, however, that the South
American countries will be in-
fluenced against refugee immi-
gration at the present time by
the American State Departments
order.
The acting American consul-
general in London informed a
delegation of the Polish Jewish
Refugee Fund, composed of Lady
Fletcher. L. Mirkin and A. M.
Kaizer. that the American order
would apply also to refugees
with relatives in Lithuania, Lat-
via and Bessarabia, now under
Soviet control. It was believed
at first that only refugees with
kinfolk in Axis-dominated coun-

tries would be hit by the order.
Following the conference, the
Fund issued a statement to the
press: "The consul-general in-
formed the delegation that the
order applies not only to those
who'have near relatives in Ger-
many or her occupied territories,
but equally so in Italy, Russia
and territories occupied by these
two countries. This includes
Lithuania, Latvia and Bessarabia.
"The consul-general made
clear that the term 'relatives' ap-
plies only to parents, children,
brothers, sisters, husbands and
wives. He explained that the
order was a protective measure
for the safety of refugees them-
selves, as well as the United
States. It has been found that
when governments affected by
the order had been making de-
mands on the United States they
often exerted pressure through
new arrivals by menacing close
relatives left behind, treating
them as hostages. This state of
affairs compelled the United
States government to adopt such
a measure, which the consul-
general described as a war mea-
sure.
"The delegation spoke of the
anxiety of those Polish refugees
in England who. because of the
new order, are unable to leave
and subsequently fall as a burden
on relief funds. They also
stressed the deplorable position
of refugees in Portugal, who face
danger of arrest and may ulti-
mately be expelled to their coun-
tries of origin, which would ex-
pose them to risk of their lives,
and requested that those already
expecting visas should be in-
cluded in the same category as
those actually in possession of
visas. They further requested
the expediting of inquiries to
check up on the statements of
those not having close relatives
in the affected countries.
"The consul-general said there
would not be a general rule ap-
plied to all applicants and each
case would be dealt with on its
merits. Applicants for visas
would have to furnish a sworn
affidavit giving the names and
addresses of close relatives in
Europe and statements by those
not having close relatives there
would be checked as quickly as
circumstances permit."

gees were drafted recently into

The refugees. Privates Isadoi j
Schabes and Rudolph Klein, both
of New York, were close frienas
in Vienna. Klein was on the
Vienna staff of the Jewish Agen-
cy for Palestine and Schabes was
part owner of a wholesale meat
business and several stores.
Before coming to the United
States in May, 1939, Schabes
spent eight months in Dachau,
from all reports the most brut;;!
and sadistic of all the Nazi con-
centration camps. Klein was ar-
rested three times after the Nazis
occupied Austria but was ordered
released, by the Gestapo because
of his duties in connection with
the Jewish Agency were consid-
ered essential.
Private Klein reported that he
has a brother serving with the
British army in Palestine. Priv-
ate Schabes said that his family
was still in Europe, his mother
in Prague, two brothers in un-
occupied Franse, another brother
in Switzerland and a sister in
Belgium. One of his nieces was
killed when Nazi bombers ma-
chine-gunned refugees fleeing
from Belgium.
The refugees told interviewers
that they were proud and happy
to be able to serve in the United

determination to "fight until

PLAIN TALK
LO, A PROPHET
By AL SEGAL
An article on anti-Semitism in
America, in the June, Atlantic
Monthly, is ominous with sug-
Sn of a dreadful fate for
America. To be sure, it has to
do altogether with the fate of
American Jews, but America it-
self will have to die before Jews
can come to the unhappy end
that is prophesied for them.
It frightens one more to think
of America dying a horrible
death than of us Jews being made
to suffer here. (Jews have suf-
fered in all the times and are in-
ured to pain anyway.)
II Atlantic Monthly's picture
of the possible picture of Ameri-
can Jews is true, then America
itself is on the way out; this is
to say. the America of democracy
and freedom, the America of the
Declaration and the Constitution.
(What will be done then with
the original of the Declaration
of Independence that is kept so
magnificently on view in the
Library of Congress?)
Tne article"The Jewish Prob-
lem in America" by Jay Nock
discusses what has been currently
happening against the Jews in
America. Then Mr. Nock con-
siders what governments in the
past did to Jews under strong
demagogic pressure, and finally
says:
'When our economic reckon-
ing comes due: when the bilked
and necessitous proletariat and
the equally necessitous middle
class feel the squeeze forcing
them together in a demonstration
against anything that can be made
to look like a common enemy;
when the upper class remains
sullen and apethetic; when pro-
letarian demagogues throughout
the country raise the old cry
"Der Jud ist schuld"the gov-
ernment will then be under an
unprecedented temptation to use
the ensuing agitation as a light-
ning rod. If I keep up my fa-
mily's record of longevity. I
think it is not impossible that I
shall live to see the Nuremberg
laws reenacted in this country
and enforced with vigor."
This was enough to send chills
up and down any American's
spine. It was as if to be told
that in her old age one's mother
might go crazy with an insanity
that would make her monstrous
in cruelty.
If one is a Jewish American he
began at once to take stock of
everything the Nuremberg laws
had done to Jews in Germany,
and what would they do to Jews
here?
Yes. I thought, I shall be made
to give up my newspaper job.
(One always thinks of himself
first at the sign of a calamity.)
After all the years of being the
competent and faithful worker
that I am. I shall be fired.
One day the editor will sum-
mon me: "Segal. I am very sorry
to have to let you out. Of course,
it isn't my idea. You know the
new laws: No Jew may work on
any American newspaper. I'm
terribly sorry."
My children will be declassed
and degraded. There is the one
who is the lawyer. He will be
barred from the law courts.
Around the stone eaves of our
Courthouse is carved a brave
declaration of what justice in
America means. It was written
by the Chief Justice and former
President, William Howard Taft.
In the Courthouse lobby stands
the statue of a young militia
man who died there defending
American institutions against a
mob the time we had the Court-
house riot long ago.
My son will protest: "Do none
of these things mean anything
anymorethis assertion of civil
and social righteousness carved

they mean anything?
"You're a Jew. Segal, and you
know what the new law is on
Jews practicing.'
The Nuremberg laws will oper-
ate on the bus on which I ride
in the morning. At present I
enjoy these bus rides, what with
smoking my pipe, what with con-
versation. My non-Jewish
neighbors and I talk about the
dreadful way things are going
in the world and what should be
done to save America from all
that. Mr. McGuire says thank
God his great-great grandfather
was courageous enough to come
over here.
Nuremberg laws will segregate
me in a separate section in the
rear of the bus. I am sure Mc-
Guire will resent this and will
ask me to sit with him. but I
sh though. Mr. McGuire. For if he
is seen sitting with me in a bus,
he may be arrested for race de-1
filement. and I wouldn't for the |
world do anything to hurt Mr.
McGuire.
Then there is Essie. Essie is j
the girl who works in our house. '
She is under 40 and Nuremberg
laws forbid any woman under
40 to work in a Jewish family.
"Essie."' I will have to say to
her. "I must let you go. The law
says you are not old enough to
work for us. since we are Jews."
"But. Mr. Segal, you've been so
kind to me."
"But. Essie, kindness doesn't
count anymore. Nothing decent
counts anymore in America.
But this isn't really America:
America is dead."
Mr. Nock's prophecy doesn't
frighten me so much after I have
pictured it in the actuality of
Nuremberg laws enforced in
America. It seems reduced to
absurdity by the very frightful-
ness of the picture.
It can't happen here unless
there is a revolution that upsets
the Congress as we know it and
abolishes the Constitution and
destroys the Supreme Court and
its protection of Americans in
their rights. If you have any
faith in the democratic process
as a corrective of abuses you can
not believe in such revolutionary
upheaval.
It can't happen here unless
Hitler takes America body and
soul, as he has taken France
which, having given him its
body now is surrendering to him
its soul which used to be so lumi-
nous. To prophesy Nuremberg
laws in America is like surren-
dering to Hitler without a shot,
like saying. "Well, it's coming
anyway and so what's the use
t0 fight Hitler?" I can not be-
lieve in an American surrender
to Hitler.
To believe that it can t happen
here may be naive faith in me,
yet there is vitality in faith and
I recommend its life-giving to

THE Y. M. H. A.
NOTES
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
Y. M. H. A. Sends Questionnaires
To Members
The "Y" is always alert in
following such methods that
bring the best results. Our gov-
ernment, in order to obtain the
best data on the selectees, sends
questionnaires to each one of
them. Murry Grossman, presi-
dent of the Y. M. H. A., ap-
preciating that such a method
will obtain results, has followed
suit.
One of the most difficult tasks
for a newly elected president is
the appointment of committees.
It is Murry s desire to give every
member of the "Y" an opportun-
ity to serve on some committee.
With that in mind, he has sent
questionnaires to every member
of the Y. M. H. A. in which he
has listed nineteen committees.
While the response has been very
gratifying, many of the members
have not yet answered this letter.
We appeal to every member of!
the Y. M. H. A. to reply by de-
signaling the committee he wishes ;
to serve and signing the question-
naire. In that manner our presi-
dent will have an intelligent
guide when he makes the ap-
pointments.
Y. W. H. A. Active in U. S. O. \
The first general meeting of
the new Y. W. H. A. administra- j
tion was held Wednesday even-
ing. June 18th with Mrs. Millie!
Rubenstcin. newly elected presi-
dent, presiding. She thanked
the outgoing officers for the
the cooperation of every member
for the coming year.
Murry Grossman, newly elected
president of the Y. M. H. A. was
the guest speaker and pledged
the support of the "Y" to any
project that the Y. W. will un-
dertake. Maurice Grossman, ex-
ecutive director, spoke in behalf
of U. S. O. and urged the ladies
to become active therein. Mrs.
Norman Jacobs, vice-president
of the Y. W. H. A. volunteered
to act as chairman for the selling
of U. S. O. certificates. All per-
sons who have not yet bought
their U. S. O. certificates, please
contact Mrs. Jacobs at the "Y".
Price scale $1.00 up.
Diamond Ball
The "Y" has just concluded the
first half of the 1941 season of
Diamond Ball. As a member of
the Civic League, sponsored by
the city of Miami Recreation
Division, it has made a remark-
able showing. Under the ab^e
leadership of Frank Rose, mana-
ger of the diamond ball team,
many youngsters were given an
opportunity to participate in this
great sport. Every Saturday and
Wednesday night will find our
team playing at either the Miami
Annex or Riverside Playground,
with as many as twenty boys
waiting for the opportunity to be
called in the game. This is just
one of the many methods used
by the "Y" in building our youth.

IT LIKES YOU
This past Sunday saw the
birth of the Sholem Lodge dia-
mond-ball team. The enthusiasm
was positively overwhelming.
About fifteen brothers partici-
pated in practice and later com-
peted on the diamond with the
Civic League team. I am proud
to announce that we won by
about six runs. However, in all
fairness to the Civic League it
must be stated that it was not
their first team. Another game
is scheduled for this coming
Sunday morning at Flamingo
Park and a grudge game is on
tap.
Bro. Barney Goodman was the
hitting star of the day getting
four hits in five attempts, one
of which was the only legitimate
home run of the game. Emil
Gould capably handled the man-
agerial reins. Marty Milstein
looked like a big leaguer by
coming out in a uniform. It was
a lot of fun and anyone inter-
ested in playing or just looking is
welcome. We are still in the
market for some good players.
Last week I mentioned that the
Lodge was doing U. S. O. work.
Lo and behold the Auxiliary
has stolen our thunder. Through
the cooperation of the Wometco
Theatres, the Auxiliary has been
given the week of July 6th
through the 12th in which to sell
tickets the proceeds of which
will go to the U. S. O. Each
ticket is good for any perform-
ance at any Wometco Theatre and
costs but $.55. I understand that
many other organizations in the
community are cooperating with
the Auxiliary in the disposition
of tickets. However the honor
of sponsorship goes to the Auxil-
iary. It is our duty to give all
out aid to the Auxiliary in selling
tickets. Thousands must be sold
to appreciably benefit the U. S.
O. As you know the money will
go toward building recreation
halls for our soldiers and par-
ticularly the selective service
draftees so that leisure at camp
may be spent enjoyably in proper
surroundings.
Since the writing of the above
paragraph the social affair of the
Lodge was held and boy. oh boy,
did those women go to town in
button holing every brother and
selling him tickets to the U. S. O.
theatre party. Ida Optner must
have sold fifty that night. Bro.

PAGE SIX *JeHisti fk>ri(Jiar> FRIDAY. JUNE 27. 1941 PORTUGUESE SHIP BRINGS 132 CHILD REFUGEES TO U.S. New York (WNS)—The small Portuguese liner Mouzinhe arrived here from Lisbon, with 734 passengers aboard, including 132 ehild refugees, most of them Jewish, who embarked from the ship singing the 'Star Spangled Banner" and cheering their new home. When the rescue ship left Lisbon there were 131 children aboard but a baby at sea on Friday. June 13th. raised the total. The youngest refugee was born to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Kaston. Polish Jewish refugees. Mr. Kaston. a violinist, fought with the French Army in the Maginot Line, was taken prisoner by the Nazis, but managed to escape to Lisbon where he rejoined his wife. For most of the children the voyage from Lisbon marked the end of suffering and persecution. The young refugees come from Germany. Austria. Poland. Rumania. Czechoslovakia and France. The children were maintained in Marseille by OSE. Jewish health society, and cared for in Portugal by the Joint Distribution Committee. Included among the child refugees were a number whose parents had been killed in Nazi concentration camps. The parents of many others are still interned in Nazi camps. Nine of the children were detained at Ellis Island because of minor ailments. They were expected to be released shortly. One of the children. 13-yearold Paul Weiss of Belgium, told ship news reporters: "I have a great joy to know that t am*in America. But I cannot forget that my mother is in Gurs." Gurs is one of the most notorious internment camps in France. Dr. Israel Chonski, a Polish refugee, who cared for the children during the trip, reported that when the youngsters first came to Lisbon they looked like "tired old men and women, their faces gray and pinched and their spirits dulled." They gradually began to brighten and show an interest in their surroundings. By the time the ship reached New York, he said, they were shouting and cheering. Upon arrival here, the children were placed in the custody of the United States Committee for the Care of European Children, which has made arrangements to place them in American homes. Another refugee aboard the ship was the 39-year-old Chief Rabbi Robert Serebrenik of Lux. jemburg. who laughingly explainj ed to reporters how he forced | the Nazi occupying authorities of Luxemburg to continue paying him his regular government salary. J. C. I. PLANNING JEWISH POST WAR REBUILDING New York (WNS)—Dr. Stephen S. Wise, president of the American Jewish Congress and chairman of the executive committee | of the World Jewish Congress, : announced the formation of the Institue of Jewish Affairs, a nonpolitical scientific institute, under the auspices of the two organizations. Declaring that the Jewish people face a crisis unparalleled in its history, "with one out of ] every four Jews in the world the victim of Nazi and Fascist opi pression," Dr. Wise explained the Institute would prepare a brief; "on the basis of which four mil-' lion Jews may be restored to; normal life at the end of the war., and means devised to prevent a! recurrence of what has taken place, and to insure security in the future." LEADERS ASK ACCEPTANCE JEWISH REFUGEES London (W N S)—Leaders of Jewish organizations, including the Board of Jewish Deputies and the Anglo-Jewish Association, conferred here following confirmation from Washington of the order forbidding American consulates in Europe to issue American visas to refugees with close relatives in Germany and Nazi-occupied territories. Italy and Russia. Jewish leaders opened preliminary discussions with the London representatives of Canada. New Zealand and Australia, urging them to inform their respective governments of the dangers confronting refugees, stranded in Lisbon. Japan and elsewhere. A memorandum will be presented shortly to the governments of these countries, appealing for admission to Canada. New Zealand and Australia of Jewish refugees who will otherwise be imprisoned or sent back to Germany. At the same time, officials of Jewish organizations issued an appeal to South American countries. It was feared in Jewish circles, however, that the South American countries will be influenced against refugee immigration at the present time by the American State Departments order. The acting American consulgeneral in London informed a delegation of the Polish Jewish Refugee Fund, composed of Lady Fletcher. L. Mirkin and A. M. Kaizer. that the American order would apply also to refugees with relatives in Lithuania, Latvia and Bessarabia, now under Soviet control.

Following the conference, the Fund issued a statement to the press: "The consul-general informed the delegation that the order applies not only to those who'have near relatives in Germany or her occupied territories, but equally so in Italy, Russia and territories occupied by these two countries. This includes Lithuania, Latvia and Bessarabia. "The consul-general made clear that the term 'relatives' applies only to parents, children, brothers, sisters, husbands and wives. He explained that the order was a protective measure for the safety of refugees themselves, as well as the United States. It has been found that when governments affected by the order had been making demands on the United States they often exerted pressure through new arrivals by menacing close relatives left behind, treating them as hostages. This state of affairs compelled the United States government to adopt such a measure, which the consulgeneral described as a war measure. "The delegation spoke of the anxiety of those Polish refugees in England who. because of the new order, are unable to leave and subsequently fall as a burden on relief funds. They also stressed the deplorable position of refugees in Portugal, who face danger of arrest and may ultimately be expelled to their countries of origin, which would expose them to risk of their lives, and requested that those already expecting visas should be included in the same category as those actually in possession of visas. They further requested the expediting of inquiries to check up on the statements of those not having close relatives in the affected countries. "The consul-general said there would not be a general rule applied to all applicants and each case would be dealt with on its merits. Applicants for visas would have to furnish a sworn affidavit giving the names and addresses of close relatives in Europe and statements by those not having close relatives there would be checked as quickly as circumstances permit." JEWISH REFUGEES DRAFTEES, I THE TRAIL TAVERN FEATURES "Chicken In The Pan" • 50c • FREE DELIVERY 905 S W. 8th St. Ph. 2-915* Fort Dix, N. J. (WNS)—Two young Jewish refugees from Na?i occupied Austria, separated when they left Europe more than two years ago, resumed their old friendship when they met each other at religious services here for Jewish soldiers. Both refugees were drafted recently into the United States army. The refugees. Privates Isadoi J Schabes and Rudolph Klein, both of New York, were close frienas in Vienna. Klein was on the Vienna staff of the Jewish Agency for Palestine and Schabes was part owner of a wholesale meat business and several stores. Before coming to the United States in May, 1939, Schabes spent eight months in Dachau, from all reports the most brut;;! and sadistic of all the Nazi concentration camps. Klein was arrested three times after the Nazis occupied Austria but was ordered released, by the Gestapo because of his duties in connection with the Jewish Agency were considered essential. Private Klein reported that he has a brother serving with the British army in Palestine. Private Schabes said that his family was still in Europe, his mother in Prague, two brothers in unoccupied Franse, another brother in Switzerland and a sister in Belgium. One of his nieces was killed when Nazi bombers machine-gunned refugees fleeing from Belgium. The refugees told interviewers that they were proud and happy to be able to serve in the United States army and expressed the determination to "fight until right again prevails." 556 JEWISH REFUGEES PLAN TO SAIL FOR NEW YORK Barcelona (WNS)—After paying exhorbitant rates for transportation, 556 Jewish refugees from Nazi-dominated European countries boarded the Spanish ship Villa de Madrid, which was scheduled to leave for New York June 21. It was reported that the refugees had chartered the boat at a cost of $300,000.

Inquir i,, of this Kind are especially welcome. the name of the questioner will be held in tl,e strictest confidence if he so desires. Villifiers of the Talmud The un-American propagandists in this country have discovered the Talmud! In community alter community during the past few months there has bobbed up an anti-Semitic leaflet called "Why are Jews Persecuted for their Religion?", listing a number of citations, supposedly from the Talmud, to prove"' that immortality and dishonesty arc specifically Jewish attributes. Some days ago this piece of villification was distributed in the vicinity of the Columbus Hotel. Its prior source is the so-called Nationalist Press Association, operating in the Yorkville section of jNcw York City. The "Association," a one-man organization, ; consists cf an opportunist who j doubtless finds the hate-baiting | racket lucrative. We have j learned that copies of the poison I pen leaflets now are being printed by a local printing shop for) Greater Miami circulation. The compiler of these garbled misquotations has the gall to urge that the readers keep in mind throughout the reading of "this bit of historical evidence," as he calls it, the following question: "Is this the reason the Jews have been disliked and driven out of every nation that ever existed down to the present time?" There follows then a rehearsal of numerous charges against Jews, supposedly taken from Jewish sources and "accompanied by the chapter and verse or the page of the book from which it was taken." daring "any rabbi or recognized Jewish authority to disprove any statement contained in this pamphlet." 5 worth-knowing reasons for the BIG FORD SALES JUMP IN 1941! "VVTHY has this year's Ford scored one of the ** biggest sales gains over the previous year in all Ford history? Why "did its sales this year start to boom so far in advance of the usual spring carbuying season? The answer's just that good news travels fast, that buyers are discovering the new 1941 advantages that only a Ford gives you at the price, that buyers are switching to die greatest Ford ever built to get the things it gives. CHECK THE ROOM I Greater actual passenger space than anything else in its field this year! Seals actually voider than in some of the highest priced 1941 cars! TRY THE RIDE I There's a new Ford ride this year and it's really a bit— A ride re-engineered throughout. from softer, slower-acting springs to new and far more rigid frame. FEEL THE POWER! Here's 90horsepo werwuh8-cvlinder smoothness and proved best gas economy in its class in the official Gilmore-Grand Canyon Economy Run SEE THE STYLE I Here's one of the few cars at any price that's completely new in style for 1941 new inside and out and front to rear .;. up-to-date for a long time! GET THE DEAL! See for yourself how well Ford Dealers are trading this year, on all makes of cars. Learn how little, with the trade on your car, a new Ford will cost! Buy Your New Car on '41 Facts and You'll Buy a '41 Ford! The Facts Now what are the facts? Jewish citizens of Miami have asked us to state them. However, let's not rely upon a Jewish authority, but examine instead the comments of a non-Jewish group. Take, for example, the observations of the Humanity Guild of New York. After studying the details of the pamphlet, which circulated in New York, the Guild supplied the following facts: "... without exception, the references either do not exist at all or are so perverted as to make them say exactly the opposite of what their authors intended them to say. The fashion just now being to play up the Nazi 'race-defilemenf accusation against the Jew. the compiler of this scurrilous pamphlet quotes a few Jewish sources in proof of its validity. A Jew may misuse a nonJewess in her state of unbelief,' is quoted, and Maimonides' YadHazakah, 2:2, is given as reference. Now, this reference does not exist at all, and what Maimonides does say elsewhere on the subject of misusing a woman is exactly the opposite of what the non-existent reference was supposed to imply. For this philosopher and codifier distinctly and specifically prohibits all extra-marital relations with a woman, be she Jew or Gentile. Mutilations of the Text Similarly, the quotation, alj legedly from Aboda-Zara 37a, : saying that 'a Gentile girl who is I three years old can be violated" is at once a falsification and a fabrication. The truth about the statement, absurd enough on the I face of it even if it were ever made, is that, in mutilated form, it was deliberately taken from a wholly puritanic discussion, with the malicious design of giving it a significance it was never intended to have. The consensus of opinion of the rabbis of that group on sex relationship is that a man should never allow himself to be closeted with a woman even if there be no premeditated intentions between them. Even a young girl should be shunned, particularly the heathen girls who, as it was held in those ancient days, mature very early. And it was in this connection that one of the group—a certain Rabina—probably more fanatically puritan than the rest, observed that the daughter of a heathen (not Gentile, but heathen) should be regarded as a woman even at the early age of three and consequently should not he closeted with. That much about the 'truth' in connection with the charge of race-defilement. The Talmud on Business Ethics In connection with the second major charge against the Jews, that their law permits them to cheat and overreach the Gentile in business, copious references are drawn by the libcler on Hoshen Misphat, the orthodox Jewish authority on civil law since the latter part of the XVI century. Here, too, the exact paragraphs are given, to impress the reader with the veracity of the allegation. Accordingly, the Gentiles are informed that whereas the Jews are strictly forbidden to cheat their own, they are not forbidden to cheat Gentiles, and it is even a crime to return to them what they have been cheated of. Thus, Paragraph 227 of the Hoshen-Mishpat is supposed to say literally: 'The Jew Is permitted to cheat a Goy, and he is not permitted to return him what he cheated him of. Because the Bible says: Thou shalt not cheat thy next brother," but the nonJews are not our brethern .' Now. the whole content of I No. 227 is a fabrication. What Hoshen-Mishpat does say on the subject of cheating is that 'it is forbidden t 0 deceive people in purchase and sale, or even to steal their thoughts: If, for example, there is a defect in the wares, the seller must apprise the buyer of it, and it is all one whether the purchaser is a Jew or non-Jew.' Technique of Succesaful Lying Can people be as brazen as that? They can, when they are by nature cruel and bent on evil. This particular pamphleteer makes an adroit attempt at facesaving by informing the reader that 'These passages have been translated from the original Hebrew by the Courts of France, causing the King of France to order all copies of the Talmud to be burned.' When? As far back as 1489. The irony of it is that in thus referring to a translation 'from the original Hebrew' made some five centuries ago as evidence of the subversive teachings of the Talmud, the present day maligners of the Jewish people are following out the advice of the Talmud itself in the subject of successful lying. 'He who would make falsehood sound true should make his testimony inaccessible to verification,' advises a Talmudic rabbi sarcastically, and it is being followed'out by our pamphleteer in all hypocritical earnestness. Fortunately for the Jews and for all lovers of truth, while the documentary records of the Court of France dating from the fifteenth century are indeed somewhat inaccessible to us. the Talmud itself, from which the translation 'from the original Hebrew' was then made, is quite accessible to us today, and a simple comparison between the alleged translation and the original text is sufficient to give the lie to the traducers." BLUE SHIRTS TO ENFORCE JOAN BENNETT. FRANCHOT TONE CO-STAR IN COMEDY Joan Bennett hilariously goes to work, both literally and figuratively, on Wall Street in the delightful comedy. "She Knew All The Answers" which starts Saturday, June 28th at the Lincoln and Miami Theatres. With Franchot Tone co-starred as a Wall Street broker who doesn't like show girls, "She Knew All The Answers" is one of the gayest, giddiest and grandest lovej and-laugh comedies of the year, j Miss Bennett appears as a i night club star, who wants to [ marry a millionaire playboy. Tone, the boy's guardian, absolutely forbids the marriage, even | though he doesn't know the girl at all. The supporting cast includes | John Hubbard, as the playboy, Eve Arden, as Joan's wise-cracking roomate and William Tracy, as a love-smitten office boy. Vichy (WNS)—Followers of the violently anti-Semitic Pierre Laval voted at their last party conference to organize a "BlueShirt" battalion, along the lines of the Nazi "Brown Shirts," to supervise the enforcement of anti-Jewish legislation in occupied France, it was reported here. The decision to establish a "Blue Shirt" division was taken after speakers at the party conclave condemned so-called leniencies in the enforcement of the anti-Jewish regulations and the public's apparent apathy to the Nazi-sponsored anti-Jewish program. While the duties of the newlyorganized "Blue Shirts" were not made clear, it was widely believed that they would enforce a boycott of Jewish-owned shops in the same manner that the "Brown Shirts" in Germany prevented customers from entering Jewishowned stores. The "Blue Shirts" will be user! also, it was learned, to terrorize French opponents of further collaboration between Germany and France. The unwillingness on the part of the French people in the occupied area to cooperate with Nazi authorities has been a source of bitter irritation to the Nazis. Meanwhile, a drive to raise 120,000 francs to meet the relief budget of Jewish organizations in France was voted at a meeting of the Central Coordinating Relief Committee held in Marseilles. Chief Rabbi Issaye Schwartz presided at the meeting which was attended by representatives of the Joint Distiibution Committee, HIAS-ICA Emigration Association, ORT-OZE and other relief organizations. Life for Jews in the unoccupied area has become increasingly difficult with the enforcement of the new anti-Jewish laws announced recently by Xavier Vallat, commissioner for Jewish Affairs. Jews are being forced out of their jobs at an alarming rate. Mass arrests of foreign Jews and their concentration in special police-supervised areas are continuing.

JUNE 27. 1941 VOLUME 14 NUMBER 26 THE GERMAN INVASION OF RUSSIA The war being waged by Hitler against Soviet Russia adds i.ve million more Jews to those directly affected by the war. In the Ukraine alone—in cities like Odessa K;ev and Zhitomir, which the Nazis attacked ::c:v. the air on the very first day of the new war—there are some three million lews. Not to speak of Galicia. Bessarabia Bukovir.a White Russia and the Baltic countries, which are in the :i:s: line of fire. In tnese territories there are about two million Jews a majority of whom had tasted the war in 1939 when the Nazis bombed Poland. Trapped in Soviet Lithuania are many thousands of Jews who risked their lives to escape from Nazi Poland, seeking to find their way to the American continent since Moscow was issuing transit visas to Polish citizens emigrating oversaes. Now these Jews will again fall into Nazi hands, since it can be taken for granted that the Baltic countries, being so close to the German frontier will be occupied by Germany. Ir. Soviet-held Galicia there cae 1,500.000 Jews, trembling in fear of falling under Nazi occupation and sharing the fate of their relatives who are now starving in the ghettos of Nazicdministered Poland, the same is true of the Jews of Bessarabia and Bukovina. Much worse, however, is the situation of the Jews in the Ukraine and White Russia. These millions have, since the fall of Czarist regime, enjoyed full equality. Anti-Semitism is forbidden by law in their territories. Should the Nazi army succeed in setting foot on Ukranian soil, the Jews will be the first to suffer. Ukranian anti-Semites who stimulated the massacres of Jews during the Petlura regime some 23 years ago, and who were since then maintained all the time "in exile" by Germany, will now be brought back to the Ukraine by the Nazis to resume '.heir bloody massacres of the Jewish population under various nationalistic slogans prepared by the Nazi propaganda machine ir. Berlin. It can be taken for granted that Hitler has already prepared a Ukranian government" to serve his purposes. It is known that Hetman Skoropadski. whom the Germans proclaimed ruler of Ukraine in the First World War, has been nursed by Hitler all the time since the Nazis came to power, as probable head of a liberated Ukraine. Skoropadski and his star! have made their residence in Cracow, in preparation for the day when the Nazis will invade the Ukraine. It is to be hoped that this day will never come. The horrible anti-Jewish pogroms of some twenty years ago in the Ukraine are still fresh in the memories d many Jews in the entire world. Rational Defense Leaders to Address Convention Of Aleph Zadik Ale ph. B'nai B'rith Youth I nit BOLSHEVISTS (CONTINUED FROM PAOE 1) Ho indicated that the war against Russia was precipitated by the fact that "during the night of June 17th to June 18th Russian patrols again pentrated into the Reich's territory and could only be driven back after prolonged firing. This has brought us to the hour when it is necessary to take steps against this plot devised by the Jewish Anglo-Saxon warmongers and equally the Jewish rulers of the Bolshevist center in Moscow." About 1.500.000 Jews are in Soviet-occupied Pdland. which is under constant Nazi attack. Included in this number are manyJews who fled from Nazi-occupied Poland to escape persecution and concentration camps. Fear was expressed also for the 2.000.000 Jews In Bessarabia and northern Bukovina. areas ceded to Russia by Rumania with the approval of the Nazi government. Combined Nazi and Rumanian troops have launched an intensified drive to recover these territories. The new battle line, which stretches from the Baltic to the Black Sea. has jeopardized the 350.000 Jews in the Baltic states, most of them in Sovietoccupied Lithuania. Hundreds were reported killed ill Nazi air raids on Kiev. Zhitemir. Kaunas and Odessa, in which there are large Jewish populations. The danger facing the Jews in the new theatre of war was stressed by Prof. Selig Brodetsky. president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, who declared at a meeting of the Board: "Of course it is not for me or anybody speaking in the name of the board to express an opinion on the great international issues involved but I am afraid that none of us can forget, or. I hope, will forget that once again millions of Jews are involved in the route taken by the armies and that millions of Jews are involved in danger over the possibility of being overtaken by the Nazi heel. I can only express the hope that our brethren in the western part of Soviet Russia will escape the danger which seems to threaten them." FASCISTS FORMING THIRD PARTY IN UNITED STATES New York (W N Si—Fascist leaders in the United States are working toward the formation of a third party which will recruit its members among the followers of the America First Committee, it was reported here by The Hour, usually well-informed antiFascist weekly. "The groundwork for the political apparatus will soon be established by the America First Committee." The Hour said. "Orders are about to be issued to A. F. C. locals throughout the country that all branches are to be reorganized according to Congressional districts" Charles A Lindbergh. Senator Burton Wheeler and Father Coughun are scheduled "to play an important role in the fascist third party.' The Hour said. CONVENTION SITE CHOSEN FOR ZOA ANNUAL MEETING :r.

Josiah Wedgwood, who is now in this country, was always a great admirer of Vladimir Jabotinsky, and has considerable sympathy for the Zionist Revisionist policy .But he was prevailed upon by some Zionist die-hards not to appear at a mass-meeting called by the American Friends of Palestine an organization that supports the Revisionst claim for a Jewish army ... As the Near Eastern war theatre spreads, moving closer and closer to Palestine every day, life in Tel Aviv goes on in quite normal fashion, we hear, with the exception that the ration of sugar served with each glass of tea was cut to a single lump Still, that must be a sign that things are getting serious down there Why, by the way, didn't any of our Jewish institutes or seminaries think of conferring an honorary degree on Pierre van Paassen, for his consistent championinq of the Jewish and Palestine causes? ... We don't, however, think that s anythinq for the Zionists to braq about SCREEN DEPT.

Sends Questionnaires To Members The "Y" is always alert in following such methods that bring the best results. Our government, in order to obtain the best data on the selectees, sends questionnaires to each one of them. Murry Grossman, president of the Y. M. H. A., appreciating that such a method will obtain results, has followed suit. One of the most difficult tasks for a newly elected president is the appointment of committees. It is Murry s desire to give every member of the "Y" an opportunity to serve on some committee. With that in mind, he has sent questionnaires to every member of the Y. M. H. A. in which he has listed nineteen committees. While the response has been very gratifying, many of the members have not yet answered this letter. We appeal to every member of! the Y. M. H. A. to reply by designaling the committee he wishes ; to serve and signing the questionnaire. In that manner our president will have an intelligent guide when he makes the appointments. Y. W. H. A. Active in U. S. O. \ The first general meeting of the new Y. W. H. A. administraj tion was held Wednesday evening. June 18th with Mrs. Millie! Rubenstcin. newly elected president, presiding. She thanked the outgoing officers for the the cooperation of every member for the coming year. Murry Grossman, newly elected president of the Y. M. H. A. was the guest speaker and pledged the support of the "Y" to any project that the Y. W. will undertake. Maurice Grossman, executive director, spoke in behalf of U. S. O. and urged the ladies to become active therein. Mrs. Norman Jacobs, vice-president of the Y. W. H. A. volunteered to act as chairman for the selling of U. S. O. certificates. All persons who have not yet bought their U. S. O. certificates, please contact Mrs. Jacobs at the "Y". Price scale $1.00 up. Diamond Ball The "Y" has just concluded the first half of the 1941 season of Diamond Ball. As a member of the Civic League, sponsored by the city of Miami Recreation Division, it has made a remarkable showing. Under the ab^e leadership of Frank Rose, manager of the diamond ball team, many youngsters were given an opportunity to participate in this great sport. Every Saturday and Wednesday night will find our team playing at either the Miami Annex or Riverside Playground, with as many as twenty boys waiting for the opportunity to be called in the game. This is just one of the many methods used by the "Y" in building our youth.

FLORIDA B'nai B 'rith Not es By MILTON FRIEDMAN IT LIKES YOU This past Sunday saw the birth of the Sholem Lodge diamond-ball team. The enthusiasm was positively overwhelming. About fifteen brothers participated in practice and later competed on the diamond with the Civic League team. I am proud to announce that we won by about six runs. However, in all fairness to the Civic League it must be stated that it was not their first team. Another game is scheduled for this coming Sunday morning at Flamingo Park and a grudge game is on tap. Bro. Barney Goodman was the hitting star of the day getting four hits in five attempts, one of which was the only legitimate home run of the game. Emil Gould capably handled the managerial reins. Marty Milstein looked like a big leaguer by coming out in a uniform. It was a lot of fun and anyone interested in playing or just looking is welcome. We are still in the market for some good players. Last week I mentioned that the Lodge was doing U. S. O. work. Lo and behold the Auxiliary has stolen our thunder. Through the cooperation of the Wometco Theatres, the Auxiliary has been given the week of July 6th through the 12th in which to sell tickets the proceeds of which will go to the U. S. O. Each ticket is good for any performance at any Wometco Theatre and costs but $.55. I understand that many other organizations in the community are cooperating with the Auxiliary in the disposition of tickets. However the honor of sponsorship goes to the Auxiliary. It is our duty to give all out aid to the Auxiliary in selling tickets. Thousands must be sold to appreciably benefit the U. S. O. As you know the money will go toward building recreation halls for our soldiers and particularly the selective service draftees so that leisure at camp may be spent enjoyably in proper surroundings. Since the writing of the above paragraph the social affair of the Lodge was held and boy. oh boy, did those women go to town in button holing every brother and selling him tickets to the U. S. O. theatre party. Ida Optner must have sold fifty that night. Bro. Sam Miller didn't do badly either. The last report he gay me that night was that he n sold 29 tickets. Thafs the spit I might add that the ladies A so enthusiastic about the theatl party that they held a specif board meeting around the danl floor just before the dancirj started.

Dr. Magnes deplored the fact that the Palestine government had not announced compulsory mobilization. The economic situation of Palestine is steadily improving. Reports from a number of cities Show that their unemployment had been sharply reduced. All war industries are booming while agricultural settlements are making rapid strides. The pace-setter is Haifa, which report* a shortage of laborers. Resumed trade relations between Palestine and Syria as a result of the Allied advances into the French-mandated territory is another contributing factor to the new prosperity in Palestine.

NAZIS LAUNCH UKRANIAN A N TI JEWISH CAMPAIGN London (WNS>— Close on the heels of the Nazi proclamation of war against Soviet Russia, the Nazis unleashed a violent antiJewish campaign aimed at the Ukranian population of Russia and set off a series of "spontaneous" anti-Jewish demonstrations throughout Rumania. Germany's ally in the war against the "Soviet, it was reliably reported here. A Ukranian "Freedom Center"' has been established in Berlin for the purpose of organizing Ukranians from the "Soviet Jewish yoke." Prominent pro-Nazi Ukranians. including a number of old-time pogrom leaders, have been placed in charge of the "Freedom Center." In a radio broadcast heard throughout Europe, spokesmen for the Nazi-inspired Ukranian nationalist movement called for mass pogroms against the Jews.

M. UPTON. President Lisb'an (WNS)—Stunned by the realization that their major avenue of escape has been cut off.' a delegation of refugees visitedthe American Legation here to appeal against the American State Department's order barring United States visas to refugees with close relatives in the totalitarian countries of Europe. The refugees, many of whom face imprisonment or deportation to Germany or Nazi-occupied countries, were unable to see Captain Roosevelt as they had hoped but they were assured by Hibbard, first secretary of the Legation, that Captain Roosevelt would be glad to bring their petition for a modification of the new regulation to President Roosevelt. Meanwhile, reports from Geneva, Japan, Stockholm and unoccupied France revealed the despair and feeling of hopelessness which overtook Jewish refugees in those countries. Jewish relief officials here voiced the fear that many Jewish refugees would commit suicide when faced with the prospect of returning into the hands of Nazi Gestapo agents. Jews in Nazi-occupied countries had been able to endure their suffering, it was said, only because they clung to the hope that they would eventually be able to escape to America. With the United States now cut off to them, relief officials declared, many of them would give up their fight to live. Meanwhile, American refugee organizations held a meeting to review the consequences of the new American ruling.

JEWS IN OCCUPIED SECTIONS CLASSED AS "COMMUNISTS" Ankara (WNS)—Thousands of Jews have been arrested in Nazioccupied countries on the ground that they are Communists working in behalf of Soviet Russia, it was reported here. The report said that Berlin has issued instructions to police authorities in the various occupied or dominated countries to conduct wholesale raids on Jews. More than 2,000 Jews have been arrested in Hungary alone. In Rumania, where the extrcrn.st anti-Semitic elements are rapidly gaining control of the governSSTst least 3,000 Jews were rounded up.

rtUDAY. IUNE 27, 1941 +Jewisl) fhrMktn >• PAGE SEVEN • PLAIN TALK LO, A PROPHET By AL SEGAL An article on anti-Semitism in America, in the June, Atlantic %  Monthly, is ominous with sugSn of a dreadful fate for America. To be sure, it has to do altogether with the fate of American Jews, but America itself will have to die before Jews can come to the unhappy end that is prophesied for them. It frightens one more to think of America dying a horrible death than of us Jews being made to suffer here. (Jews have suffered in all the times and are inured to pain anyway.) II Atlantic Monthly's picture of the possible picture of American Jews is true, then America itself is on the way out; this is to say. the America of democracy and freedom, the America of the Declaration and the Constitution. (What will be done then with the original of the Declaration of Independence that is kept so magnificently on view in the Library of Congress?) Tne article—"The Jewish Problem in America" by Jay Nock— discusses what has been currently happening against the Jews in America. Then Mr. Nock considers what governments in the past did to Jews under strong demagogic pressure, and finally says: 'When our economic reckoning comes due: when the bilked and necessitous proletariat and the equally necessitous middle class feel the squeeze forcing them together in a demonstration against anything that can be made to look like a common enemy; when the upper class remains sullen and apethetic; when proletarian demagogues throughout the country raise the old cry "Der Jud ist schuld"—the government will then be under an unprecedented temptation to use the ensuing agitation as a lightning rod. If I keep up my family's record of longevity. I think it is not impossible that I shall live to see the Nuremberg laws reenacted in this country and enforced with vigor." This was enough to send chills up and down any American's spine. It was as if to be told that in her old age one's mother might go crazy with an insanity that would make her monstrous in cruelty. If one is a Jewish American he began at once to take stock of everything the Nuremberg laws had done to Jews in Germany, and what would they do to Jews here? Yes. I thought, I shall be made to give up my newspaper job. (One always thinks of himself first at the sign of a calamity.) After all the years of being the competent and faithful worker that I am. I shall be fired. One day the editor will summon me: "Segal. I am very sorry to have to let you out. Of course, it isn't my idea. You know the new laws: No Jew may work on any American newspaper. I'm terribly sorry." My children will be declassed and degraded. There is the one who is the lawyer. He will be barred from the law courts. Around the stone eaves of our Courthouse is carved a brave declaration of what justice in America means. It was written by the Chief Justice and former President, William Howard Taft. In the Courthouse lobby stands the statue of a young militia man who died there defending American institutions against a mob the time we had the Courthouse riot long ago.

My non-Jewish neighbors and I talk about the dreadful way things are going in the world and what should be done to save America from all that. Mr. McGuire says thank God his great-great grandfather was courageous enough to come over here. Nuremberg laws will segregate me in a separate section in the rear of the bus.
