CONFERENCE OF
IBIS URGE FOR
Atlantic City (WNS)A reso-
lution calling for a meeting of all
interested groups to work toward
"a more comprehensive, respon-
sible and durable" General Jew-
ish Council was adopted by the
Central Conference of American
Rabbis at its 52nd annual con-
vention.
The assemoied Rabbis ex-
pressed their appreciation of the
fact that the General Jewish
Council had given adequate re-
cognition to organized religious
forces as represented by the Sy-
nagogue Council of America.
The resolution regarding the
General Jewish Council read: "In
v'ew of the difficulties which
developed within the General
Jewish Council, causing one of
the major bodies to withdraw,
and in view of other criticisms
which have been directed at the
form or organization and pro-
gram of activities of the Coun-
cil, we regard it as of primary
importance to convene at the

RUSSIAN CHRISTIANS PRAY
FOR VICTORY OVER HITLER
Bradley Beach. N. J. (WNS)
The 33rd annual convention
of the American Federation of
Polish Jews pledged complete
support for "the restoration
of a great democratic Poland"
and cheered the promise of
Premier Sikorski of the ex-
iled Polish government that
"in the future Poland, follow-
ing victory for the democra-
cies, there will be no room
for reactionaries and anti-
Semitism."
EAST IS EASED BY
NAZ! OFFICIALS
E
London (WNS)Evidence that
jhe Soviet campaign against re-
J'g'on has not been too success-
ful was furnished in an indirect
*ay when the Moscow radio re-
Ported that churches and syna-
gogues were packed with persons
offering special prayers for a Rus-
sian victory against Hitlerism.
W addition to offering special
Prayers for victory, congrega-
"ns chanted the traditional
Prayer for the dead in memory
or the Jews killed since the be-
ginning of the war, the Moscow
raio said.
Stockholm (WNS)The 15.000
Jews drafted for compulsory ser-
vice in special Jewish labor
camps near Warsaw have been
sent to their homes following a
decision by the Nazi military au-
thorities closing down all Jewish
labor camps in the vicinity of the
Nazi-Soviet battle line, it is re-
ported here.
The report, published in the
Gazeta Zydowska, the official
Jewish newspaper in Nazi-occu-
pied Poland, conflicted with ear-
lier reports which stated that
the Nazis had ordered the execu-
tion of many Jews in the camps.
The first report said that Nazi
authorities had recommended the
shooting of Jews who had been
working on special military roads
and fortifications. The Nazis were
reported to have said that the
Jews would use the military se-
crets to wreck the Hitler regime.
The camps were closed, it was
learned here, to clear the battle
area of all Jews, presumably to
prevent them from crossing into
Russian lines. At the same tune,
Jews were ousted from Grojec,
Lowicz. Sochaczew. Blonie and
other districts west of the Vis-
tula river.
Meanwhile, the Nazi adminis-
tration launched a campaign urg-
ing the Poles to condemn the ac-
tions and statements of the Polish
government-in-exile in London,
which, according to the Nazi
press, "is ready to sell Poland
to Jews and Communists."
YOUNG ISRAEL PARLEY FOR
JEWISH ARMY IN PALESTINE
Jerusalem (WNS)With the
full strength of the Nazi army re-
ported hurled against Soviet Rus-
sia, military experts here agreed
that an Axis invasion of Pales-
tine in the near future was very
unlikely. Both Jews and Arabs
received the news of the Russian-
German war with unconcealed
joy.
Though the new developments
in the European war eased the
tension throughout the Near East
Palestine's Jewish leaders warned
against any weakening of the
country's defense program. De-
fense preparations continued un-
abated and hundreds of Jewish
youths besieged recruiting sta-
tions to volunteer for service with
the British forces.
Another source of heartening
news to the Palestine Jewish
community were the reports from
Syria and Lebanon where the
British and Free French forces
are continuing their advances.

RESCUE FOUR REFUGEES
BELIEVED TO BE LOST AT SEA
Lisbon (WNS)-Aboard the
Portuguese steamship G a n d a
when it left for Shanghai were
a 28-yeard-old Jewish refugee
mother who had become reunited
with her 10-year-old daughter,
and several other refugees who
had bid farewell to Nazi-domin-
ated and war-torn Europe and
looked forward to a new life in
other parts of the world.
Tfce Jewish mother, Mrs. Anna
Gutzman. had escaped with her
husband from Nazi-occupied Pol-
and to Shanghai last year but
her daughter was forced to re-
main in Warsaw. Dregard,ng
the dangers involved, Mrs. Gutz-
man returned here in a deter-
mined effort to locate her daugh-
ter. ,.
After considerable waiting the
girl was able to leave Warsaw
and was finally brought to Lis-
bon where she rejoined her
mother.
GERMAN PLANES
BOMB REFOGEES
DURING FLIGHT
Geneva (WNS>A prominent
official of the Nazi high command
has instructed Nazi airmen to
concentrate their bombing at-
tacks on the Jewish districts of
cities in Soviet-occupied Poland.
Rumania and other Russian cities
with large Jewish populations, it
is reported here.
In open defiance of internation-
al law. Nazi planes machine-
gunned refugee trains, private
vehicles and wagons carrying
thousands of refugees, including
many Jews, into the interior of
Russia. Thousands of Jews are
reported killed as the Russian-
German war increased in vio-
lence.
With the aid of the Soviet gov-
ernment hundreds of thousands
of refugees, including large num-
bers of the 2.000,000 Jews
trapped in the war zone, aband-
oned their cities and villages for
the comparative safety of the in-
terior. Using every method of

FASCISTS BODY
OF UKRAINIANS
ARE BUSY IN U. S.
New York (WNS)With the
Germans driving against Russia,
Ukrainian-American Fascists
have shifted into high gear their
extensive and intricate fifth col-
umn machine in the United
States, according to The Hour,
well-informed anti-Fascist week-
ly-
The Hour charged that the an-
ti-Semitic Ukrainian Fascists.
acting on instructions from Nazi
Germany, "arc redoubling all
propaganda, espionage and sab-
otage efforts on this continent."
"A pact of old standing exists
between Hitler and the Ukrain-
ian Fascists." The Hour declared.
Several years ago Dor Fuehrer
promised to put their leaders in
power when he took over the
Ukraine. In exchange, the
Ukrainian Fascists agreed to car-
ry on vigorous pro-Nazi fifth
column activity not only in the
Soviet Union itself, but also
throughout all of Europe and
wherever Ukrainians have settled
in other parts of the world."
The Hour named the ODWU
(Organization for the Rebirth of
the Ukraine) and the Hetman,
fanatically nationalist and ter-
rorist groups, as the major
Ukrainianan Fascist groups in
this country. The Hetman, the
anti-Fascist paper reported, "is
fiercely anti-Semitic and is eager
to re-introduce into the Ukraine
the bloodthirsty pogroms which
they supervised toward the end
of the first World War"
PAPER DESCRIBES
OPPOSITION TO
Washington (WNS)A sicken-
ing account of Nazi brutality
against the Jews in Czechoslo-
vakia was included in a whitt-
paper, 'Two Years of German
Oppression in Czechoslovakia."
which was presented to the
American State Department by
the Czech legation here.
The white paper charged that
the Nazis used anti-Semitism in
Czechoslovakia to mulct Jews out
of hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars. Immediately after their oc-
cupation of the country, the
Nazis ordered the transfer of all
Jewish-owned property to Ger-
man 'Aryan" control.
The Czech document reported:
"Jewish concerns were trans-
ferred only to German hands.
The 'Aryan' commissars in them,
with large salaries, were in every
case German. Even in the cases
when Jews had transferred their
property to the hands of an 'Ary-
an' Czech, this transfer was an-

COMMUNITY OF SALONIKA
FINED 1.000.000 DRACHMAS
Ankara (WNS)The Nazi mil-
itary authorities in occupied
Greece have imposed a collective
fine of 1,000,000 drachmas on the
Jewish community of Salonika, it
was reliably reported here. The
Jewish community will be held
responsible for the collection of
the funds and the payment of
the fine on a specified date.
The Nazi officials announced
the fine after accusing the Jews
of organizing a Greek demon-
stration against Nazi troops in
Salonika. This was the first
news received here of a large
scale anti-Nazi demonstration in
Greece.
In addition to the fine, Nazi
authorities instructed leaders of
the Salonika Jewish community
to provide daily 3,000 Jews for
compulsory labor. Failure to
comply with this order, the
Nazis warned, will result in se-
vere repressive measures.
GESTAPO IN MASS
PRAGUE, VIENNA
Ankara (WNS)Day and night
Gestapo raids against Jews in
Berlin, Prague and Vienna were
reported as the Nazi secret police
raised the charge that Jews in
Germany and Nazi-occupied ter-
ritories were conspiring with
Soviet Russia to overthrow the
Nazi regime, it was reported here.
Synagogues, Jewish commun-
ity houses and private homes
were invaded by heavily-armed
gestapo agents searching for "se-
cret documents" linking German
Jewry with the Communist plot.
The gestapo agents showed their
displeasure at their failure to
find the alleged documents by
smashing furniture and seizing
scores of Jews for questioning.
Jewish community leaders
were warned that they would be
held responsible for the conduct
of all "Jewish Communists."
Drastic reprisals were threatened
against infraction of the curfew
and other Nazi regulations.

ANTI SEMITIC UKRANIANS
Geneva (WNS)Nazi Ger-
many has at its disposal a thor-
oughly-trained, well-equipped ar-
my of 40,000 violently anti-Sem-
itic Ukrainians which will be un-
loosed on the Jews in the Rus-
sian Ukraine as soon as the Nazi
army occupies that territory, it
was disclosed here on good au-
thority.
The Nazis have already pre-
pared special anti-Jewish pamph-
lets which will be distributed by
troops entering the Ukraine, the
report said. The pamphlets,
urge the Ukrainians to kill their
"Jewish and Communist masters."

000 lbs. greater, but the amount
collected was some 300 lbs. less

There are a certain number of

the heavily-bombed cities of So-
viet-occupied Poland, Bessarabia
and northern Bukovina.
Reports received here indicat-
rd that great masses of Jews had
left Wilno, Bialistok. Grodno,
Pinsk, Kowel, Luck, Lwow,
Tarnopol and Stanislawow. Sov-
iet cities which have been under
constant Nazi air attack.
While the Soviet Red Army
repulsed several attempts by
combined Nazi and Rumanian
forces to gain a foothold in Bes-
sarabia and northern Bukovina,
Russian authorities encouraged
Jews who wished to leave those
areas to move into Russia.
Jews in Bessarabia were par-
ticularly apprehensive since the
Rumanian radio broadcast that
the hour has come" for ven-
geance against "Jews and Com-
munists." The Rumanian report
accused the Jews of helping Rus-
sia seize Bessarabia and of insti-
gating the present war.
A special train, packed with
refugees leaving Kaunas. Soviet-
occupied Lithuania, was halted
by Nazi troops and forced to re-
turn. All passengers on the train
were arrested and sent to concen-
tration camps. Scores of Jews
were arrested in Lithuania fol-
lowing the entry of Nazi troops
on the charge that they were
sniping at German soldiers.
The Jews in Nazi-occupied
Warsaw and Lublin were espe-
cially hard hit. The Nazis re-
fused to distribute gas masks
among the Jews in the ghetto
while Jews were informed that
they could construct their own
air raid shelters. The Warsaw
and Lublin ghettos are so over-
crowded that the possibility of
building shelters is entirely out
of the question.
When the hundreds of Soviet
bombers roared over Warsaw and
Lublin, dropping heavy bombs,
the Jewish populations of those
cities were completely defense-
less. At the same time, Nazi au-
thorities refused t0 permit any
Jew to leave the ghetto during
the raids. Nazi officials ex-
plained that this "precaution"
was necessary "in order to pre-
vent any contact between Jews
and Soviet parachutists."
3,000 YOUNGSTERS ASKED TO
RELIEVE LABOR SHORTAGE
Jerusalem ( Palcor ) Three-
thousand boys and girls, in re-
sponse to an urgent appeal from
the Jewish Agency and the Vaad
Leumi, have volunteered for farm
labor service during the summer
vacation to ease the serious labor
stringency in the agricultural
settlements.
Upon completion of the school
term the youngsters, recruited
from the upper classes of the sec-
ondary schools, offered their
help for rams in the Sharon,
Emek Jezreel and in Galilee.
Many settlers, recognizing the ur-
gent need for expanding crop
production, had appealed to the
national institutions for help in
getting workers to tend and har-
vest the crops.
Graduates of this year's term
who are under twenty, which is
fixed by the Jewish Agency as
the military enrollment age. arc-
being asked by the Agency to
undertake farm labor for a year's
time.

3. M. LIPTON. President
Washington (WNS)The State
Department must approve of all
applications for visas to the
United States before the consuls
in the field can pass on the ap-
plications, according to new reg-
ulations made public here. The
new procedure went into effect
on July 1st.
The State Department declared
that the action was made neces-
sary "in view of the declared
emergency and the necessity from
the standpoint of the national de-
fense for careful supervision ov-
er the entry of aliens into the
United States."
In its announcement the State i
Department said: 'The cases will
be considered in proper turn by
inter departmental committees
acting in an advisory capacity
with reference to the national de-
fense program.
"After examination of each
case in the department, an ap-
propriate communication will be
sent to the consul concerned for
further consideration of the case.
If an interested person should
wish, consideration will be given
to a request to have the notifica-
tion sent by telegraph at his ex-
pense to the consul.
"The consul will advise the
alien appropriately regarding his
case and the procedure to be
followed in making formal appli-
cation for a visa. In a case giv-
en preliminary approval by a
consul, the visa will not be grant-
ed until satisfactory evidence is
submitted to show that the alien
will be able to proceed to the
United States within the period
of the validity of his visa, and
in this connection, that he has
transportation reservations and
reasonable expectations of ob-
taining an exit permit and tran-
sit visas to the port of embarka-
tion.
"When the cases are referred
to the consuls the interested per-
sons will be notified immediate-
ly. As cases will be considered
and action taken by the consuls
under the law strictly according
to the facts of the cases, special
consideration may not be accord-
ed and should not be requested."
Earlier, Undersecretary of State
Breckenridge Long informed a
delegation of rabbis that pres-
ent conditions were too chaotic
to make any promises with regard
to the possibility of rescuing
thousands of Jews trapped in the
Baltic states by the Nazi invas-
ion.
The delegation, which included
Rabbi Eliezer Silver, Rabbi Aaron
Kisler, and Michael G. Tress, told
Mr. Long that hundreds of rabbis,
rabbinical students and others in
the Baltics were in imminent
danger of pogroms.

.WITH
CEMETERY GROUP
BUYS 16 ACRES
COMPLETE VICTORY IN THE
NORTH BELIEVED IMMINENT
Complete victory in the fighting
to the north is now believed to be
imminent. Rumor has it that
Syrian High Commissioner Gen-
eral Honri Fernand Dentz is plan-
ning to evacuate his troops and
to acknowledge the defeat of the
Vichy forces at the hands of the
British and the Free French on
this battleground.
Althaugh it is understood here
that German preoccupation with
Soviet events has done much to
make this victory possible, it is
also hoped that once Syria is
definitely aligned with the demo-
cratic Allies any real Axis threat
to Palestine will have been re-
moved. The Arabs are not being
permitted to forget Hitler's origi-
nal racial aspersions on them; and
now that they have had a practi-
cal demonstration of what part-
nership with the Germans has
meant to the Russians, their
whole tendency has become one
of co-opeartion with the British
and Free French, whose definite
promises of Syrian independence
seem by the record to be more
trustworthy.
2.600 members of the General
Jewish Federation of Labor (His-
tadruth) are over 50 years of age:
of these about 400 are over 60.
At a meeting of the Greater
Miami Jewish Cemetery Assoc-
iation held last week with a full
attendance present, the assoc-
iation approved and entered into
an agreement with the Miami
Shores Memorial Park for the
purchase of approximately 16
acres of burial ground.
Miami Shores Memorial Park
is located at 136th street and
Opa Locka boulevard and the
frontage of the portion purchased
by the association amounting to
more than 900 feet will face on
the boulevard. The cemetery
can be reached through a direct
route, travelling north on North-
west 7th avenue which is a
through thoroughfare.
As soon as the deed is obtained,
the cemetery association plans to
start immediate development of
the cemetery. This purchase con-
sumates more than three years of
efforts to purchase additional
burial ground necessitated by the
small amount of grave space re-
maining at Woodlawn Cemetery.
The committee in charge of the
purchasing included I. L. Mint-
zer. A. Pepper. Sidney Palmer.
M. B. Frank. H M. Drewich and
Jack August.
As July 1st was the beginning
of the fiscal year for the assoc-
iation each of the four organiza-
tions which make up the body
announced the appointment of
their delegates to represent them
for the coming year. Beth Da-
vid Congregation announced the
appointments of Louis Gordon.
Sidney Palmer and Burnett Roth:
Beth Jacob, Harry Wasserman.
M. B. Frank, I. L. Mintzer; Mi-
ami Jewish Orthodox Congrega-
tion, A. Pepper. H. M. Drewich,
Fred Shochet; Sisterhood Chesed
El Emeth. Mrs. S. Stone, Mrs. H.
M. Kagan, Mrs. Louis Kotkin.
George Chertkof is attorney for
the group.
Urban unemployment fell to a
new low in the early part of the
year, according to statistics just
released. Mixed-farm settle-
ments still have a labor shortage.
Haifa drove off another air at-
tack without casualtes; across
the bay the ancient citadel of
Acre suffered its first raid of the
war. with one civilian casualty
and some property damage re-
sulting.

LIFTING THE BAN ON IMMIGRATION
While the general measures c: the S:ate rervrrtmen: to pre-
vent Noci :.:.h columnists horn entering the United States ere
fully approved by the press throughout '.he country seme Ameri-
can newspapers hove BOl besMatec :o term cruel or.d unneces-
sary the recer.: ruling o: the Depcrtmem not to issue visas to
those in Ncziland who leave close relatives behind them.
These newspapers suggest thai the blanket order which leaves
thousands o: Ncnri victims in Nazi hands should be revoked, and
a Congressional investigation committee be established to look
into our immigration policy. They insist that it is the duty of
the Immigration Department to be able to discriminate between
the term 'Nazi' and German. '
Other projects advanced for the modification of the blanket
order suggest that refugees be admitted as hitherto but to tem-
porary concentration camps in the U. S. A. They argue that an
American concentration camp-would be a paradise compared
to a German one for those seeking refuge from the Nazis. They
also point out that these camps would not be a public burden
since they would be maintained either by the interested relief
organisations or by their American relatives.
Meanwhile, the State Department issued a supplementary
ruling intended to cieaT up misunderstandings. This ruling,
which enters into effect on July 1stwhen the new quota year
startstakes from American consuls abroad the right to issue
any visas whatsoever and transfers these rights to a special
Immigration Department in Washington. In other words, if
Washington is satisfied to have the refugee admitted, his appli-
cation for c visa will be favorably dealt with and he will be
admitted. Jewish and non-Jewish relief agencies interested in
helping refugees to come to this country will be able to main-
tarn contact with the special department in Washington through
the President s Advisory Committee on Political Refugees, which
has hitherto been very helprul to these agencies and of which
'antes G McDonald is chairmen.
This latest ruling it is believed, will to a certain extent modify
me order completely barring refugees from entering the U. S. A.
_: they hare close relatives in Germany and German-held terri-
tories This ruling it is hoped will serve both purposes: While
crotectma the country acmes: possible fifth columnists, it will
also help exoedite visas tor those refugees whom the State
Department wul find cles_-able immigrants. We do not believe
that the new crocecure wfll b:_ng into this country as many un-
miarants as the quota permits The total ban on refugees can.
however be cens.he:en lined The next step should be to in-
vesnaate the other re-ccmmendations made. They are all in the
spirit o: protectmg the U. S A from Nazi agents, but at the same
time are m the spar, c: rescuing frcm Nazi clutches all those

With the Allied forces expected
soon to be in complete control of
Syria, and with the bulk of the
Nazi army fighting en the Russian
front, danger of an imminent at-
tack against Palestine has been
removed, it was generally be-
lieved here.
British officers returning from
Damascus, now in Allied hands,
reported the liberation of the
5.000 Jews in the Syrian capital.
Harassed by Nazi-inspired anti-
Semitic propaganda and Vichy-
promulgated anti-Jtwish laws, the
Jewish population of Damascus
greeted the British and Free
French troops with open arms
The Jewish population of Da-
mascus was once 15.000. but emi-
gration to the United States. Leb-
anon and Paitstine during the
last 25 years diminished the Jew-
ish community, comprised mostly
of small traders and peddlers
The officers said that the Jew-
ish community was directed by
Elias Mizrachi end a local Beth

~v.t. (sages). Until the Syrian
Parliament was ordered dissolved

WAR ECHOES
One result of the Russo-German war is expected to be the
return of Maxim Litvinofi to political prominence in the Soviet
Union ... In fact, those who remember Litvinoff's important
part in obtaining recognition for the Soviet government from
Uncle Sam believe that he may be sent over here to coordinate
American aid to Russia We can't work up much sympathy
for Dr. Hans Thomsen, Charge d'Affaires at the Nazi Embassy
at Washington, but we wouldn't like to be in his shoes if and
when he has to qo back home to the Reich Though we would
like to listen in to the calling-down Hitler will give Thomsen for
his widely reported expression of reluctance to leave the flesh-
pots of Washington for the ersatz rations of Berlin The trans-
Atlantic grape-vine is quivering these days with reports indi-
cating a growinq anti-Nazi sentiment among the Hitler-oppressed
peopleswhich includes the Germans too, of course This it
is said that in Germany itseli funerals have become popular
social occasions, being the only opportunity people have ;o
get together and whisper about the latest British broadcasts .
Which reminds us that we can think of a number of funerals that
would prove most popular not only in Germany but in other
countries as well Then there's the story of the underground
faction's latest stunt, printing anti-Nazi slogans on coins and
then dropping the pfennige on the street. Passersby pick them
up, read the messaqe, and then drop the coins aqain for the
next comer .
YOU SHOULD KNOW
Curious coincidence unearthed by Walter Winchell: In the
sprinq of 1933 Adolf Hitler made a political speech in which
he is quoted as sayinq: "Neither I nor anybody else in the Na-
tional Socialist Party advocates proceeding by anything but
constitutional methods" ... In the U. S. in the Sprinq of 1941
Charles A. Lindberqh stated, in a speech: "Neither I nor any-
body else in the America First Committee advocates proceedinq
by anythinq but constitutional methods'' Reports from down
below the Rio Grande have it that Mexico is seeinq a tre-
mendous influx of German tourists these days Georqe Ber-
nard Shaw, who until recently considered Hitler a qenius, now
says: "Either Hitler's a qreater fool than I took him for or he's
qone completely mad" ... To A. B.. Chicaqo: The Carl Schurz
Memorial celebrations are definitely Bund-inspired affairsthe
one scheduled for the Windy City especially Now that the
Soviets have aqreed to a reborn Poland after the war, the time
is ripe for the Polish qovernment-in-exile to make a very de-
finite and specific statement about the status of Jews in that
Poland-to-be .
WITH THE PROPHETS
We've sworn off prognostication for the time being, that being
an extra-hazardous occupation in these times when the news of
actual events becomes overripe 'twixt the wire and the type .
But we have to hand it to the interpreters of the Great Pyramid's
"prophecy" for hitting the nail almost exactly straight on the
head when they predicted a gTeat "spiritual awakening" for
the Anglo-Saxon nations for June 25th remember we reminded
you only last week to look out for that date?) ... At least, we
hold to the view that the refusal of Britain and the U. S. to fall
for Hitler's anti-Bolshevik bait and their firm rejection of ap-
peasement fit quite well into the prophecy ... If you're interested
in the details of Nostradamus' predictions; incidentally, be sure
you qet the new book just put out by Scribner's. in which the
16thcentury Jewish physician's Centuries" appear .
JEWISH NEWS
Last week's New York mass meetinq for a Jewish army, held
under the sponsorship of the American Friends of Jewish Pales-
tine, provided fireworks in Zionist affairs Pressure was used
on Pierre Van Paassen to prevent his appearance there ... On
the day of the meetinq Dr. Stephan S. Wise issued a public
statement announcinq that Van Paassen would positively not
appear at that meetinq ... So what happened? ... So Van
Paassen not only appeared, but delivered a rousinq speech
callinq upon the Zionists of America to make a pilgrimage to
Vladimir Jabotinsky's grave and there to beat their breasts in
repentance The Zionist slogan, he said, should be: "Jabot-
insky, you were right" There still is talk about that enlarged
Jewish Agency for Palestine Non-Zionist circles are pre-
pared to cooperate, yet the organization of it is making little
headway Zionist initiative is lacking Too much talk
about things instead of direct talk to the proper persons is
responsible for this lethargic status ... An Arab conference
dealing with Lebanese and Syrian affairs is scheduled for
Detroit in the very near future ... The Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi
League has, following the recent resignation of its executive
vice-chairman, Meyer W. Weisqal, lost by resiqnation the fol-
lowinq ... Dr. B. Dubovsky, chairman of the national executive
committee and one of the founders of the Leaque ... A Gallen,
treasurer of the Leaque Jerome Count, chairman of the leqal
committee And A. D. Caesar. Philadelphia representative
and member of the executive .
ABOUT PEOPLE
^ Notwithstandinq the objections of his physician, Dr Stephen
Wise is not only ready but eaqer to fly to Enqland and see for
himself One of the reasons why London papers are so
interested in the anticipated ofisprinq of George Jessel is that
George is a relative of the late Sir Georqe Jessel, famous Enqlish
judqe of the Victorian era Georqe declares, by the way.
that if the baby is a boy he'll be named after New York's former
Mayor Jimmy Walker, while if its a girl she'll be called Patricia
, Colleen, "after my grandmother. Esther" .

nulled and the transferred prop-
erty was simply given over to a
German."
The official document dis-
closed for the first time that one
of the 10 conditions of the Mun-
ich "guarantee" of the Czech
frontiers was "the promulgation
of anti-Semitic laws analogous to
those of Nuremberg."
In a chapter devoted to anti-
Jewish atrocities, the white pa-
per states: "Jews were arrested
by thousands, without any rea-
son, and were sen! to concentra-
tion camps. This chiefly affect-
ed rich Jewish business men.
lawyers and doctors, for the ar-
rccts were carried out by the ges-
tapo. which took this opportun-
ity of plundering the home of the
man arrested."
The white paper reported that
"a number of rabbis were mur-
dered and many hundreds of
Jews escaped humiliation and
torture by committing suicide."
One bright ray in an otherwise
dark picture, the paper empha- i
sized, was the staunch resistance
on the part of the Czechs to tlie!
Nazi-inspired program of anti-1
Semitism.
"The 'Aryan' Cultural Union
cannot conceal the fact that the
Czech public decisively con-
demns these brutalities." the
white paper said. "Czeh custom-
ers ostentatiously visit Jewish
Shops, insofar as they are still
open. In Prague it became one
of the ways of protesting against
the Germans to go to the Jewish
coffee houses."
The same situation exists in
Slovakia where "within recent
months, the anti-Semitic policy
has produced interesting effects.
The Slovak public is turning
away in disgust from the brutal-
;ties committed by the regime
against the Jews and the official
Slovak press has today to rebuke
the Slovak public for being too
iukewarm in its attitude to the
anti-Jewish campaign and even
for sympathizing with Jewish
fellow-citizens."
APPELLATE TERM REVERSES
McWILLIAMS CONVICTION
New York (WNS)The appel-
late term of Special Sessions has
set aside the conviction of Jo-
seph E. McWilliams, violently
anti-Semitic leader of the Ameri-
can Destiny Party, who was sen-
tenced last October 1st to 75
days at hard labor for making
abusive anti-Jewish speeches at
street corner meetings, and or-
dered a new trial for the York-
villc fuehrer.
McWilliams. the American Des-
tiny Party's candidate for Con-
gress in last fall's elections on a
strictly anti-Jewish platform, had
served 21 days of his sentence
' when he was released in SI.000
J bail on a certificate of reasonable
' doubt.
As his camapign drew to a
dose, McWilliams appeared night-
ly at various street corner meet-
ings, spouting the usual Hitler-
inspired anti Jewish epithets.
Surrounded by scores of his
bodyguards and henchmen, he
j would frequently challenge the
one or two Jews in his audience
to step up and fight.
The little fuehrer was arrested
on the complaint of Samuel Nei-
nian. New York button manufac-
turer, who charged that the anti-
Semite's speech was intended to
incite his hearers "against the
Jewish faith by the use of offen-
sive, disorderly, threatening, and
abusive and insulting language."
In reversing the McWilliams
conviction, the higher court de-
clared that the issues in the trial
were "largely subordinated to the
exploration of extraneous mat-
ters." The court ordered a new
trial for McWilliams within two
weeks.

ed the sudden raids to the fact
that three "free" radio stations
have been operating inside Ger-
many since the beginning of the
Russian-German war. All ges-
tapo efforts to locate the secret
radio stations have been unavail-
ing so far.
The gestapo agents launched
their drive against the Jews to
cover up their failure to uncover
the operators of the democratic
stations which go on the air ev-
ery night at the appointed hour.
Meanwhile, Italy, which pro-
claimed to the world that it had
joined in the war against Rus-
sia, confined its war activities for
Hie present to lethal blows deliv-
ered over the radio. Borrowing
a page from Hitler's speech, the
Italian radio summed up the
whole situation:
"The British people need no
longer ask what ore the aims of
the war they have been com-
pelled to fight. Those aims are
perfectly clear now, so clear that
even a blind man with a mini-
mum of brains left unaffected by
Duff Cooper's propaganda would
be able to see the aim. And the
aim is simply this one:
"The Jews of all political col-
ors and shades of opinion have
now joined together to fight any-
thing and anybody who refuses to
accept their domination, the dom-
ination of the 'chosen people.'
Capitalist Jews and anti-capital-
ist Jews, plutocratic Jews and
Communist Jews have united to
attain world domination and to
prevent anti-Jewish countries
from freeing the workers from
the tyranny of individual Jew-
ish capitalism and a state owned
by the Jewish-controlled capital-
ism."
ASKS CLARIFICATION OF
NEW IMMIGRATION ORDERS
London (WNS)The British
government has instructed Lord
Halifax, British ambassador to
the United States, to visit the
American State Department in
Washington for further informa-
tion regarding the new U. S. im-
migration order barring visas to
refugees with close relatives in
totalitarian countries. it was
learned here.
The interest of the British gov-
ernment in the new immigration
ruling was explained by a semi-
official spokesman who pointed
out that Britain had given entry
to several thousand refugees from
Nazi-dominated countries on the
condition that they emigrate to
the United States as soon as pos-
sible. Pending additional infor-
mation from Washington, Britain
will make no decision regarding
these refugees, it was said.

rtlPAY. JULY 4, 1941
I
NO IMMEDIATE
IKS FOR OLD
E
Jacksonville (Special)To cor-
* a possible misunderstand-
m regarding recent legislative
ncreases in old age assistance
'unds R E McDonald^chairman
of the District 9 Welfare Board.
today issued a statement in
which he pointed out that these
additional funds would not be
nibble before May 1st, 1942.
He cautioned old age assistance
recipients not to expect any im-
mediate increase in grants.
The statement follows:
Increased applications and in-
creased repuests for larger
grants, indicate that there is some
confusion in the public mind re-
garding the payment of old age
assistance in Florida.
This is most unfortunate, and
is no doubt directly due to hasty
reading of news stories that were
published during the legislative
session
"The fact is that the legislature
reappropriatod the same amount
for Old Age Assistance Aid to
the Blind, administrative costs
and participation in such Federal
progran-.s as the distribution of
surplus commodities as in 1939
and in 1937. with the exception
that it provided for a 5 cent tax
on money wagered on horse
tracks and seized the "odd cents
breaks" at horse tracks.
Since the horse tracks do not
open until late this year and are
allowed to operate for 100 days,
is i iv evident that none of the
new revenue will be available
before May 1, 1942, as the coun-
ties must first be paid the same
amount us for the previous year.
As the state is prohibited from
borrowing, it will be impossible
to spend this money before it is
actually received, even if it were
business to do so.
"When the new money is avail-
able, it is hoped that it will be in
sufficient amount to permit the
increasing of the average grant
for Old Age Assistance from the
present $13 per month to $23
per month However, this does
not mean that every recipient
*.Je*istrhridltori
PAGE SEVEN
will be paid the same then or
now. The reverse is true. Each
grant will be based on the need
of the recipient and the grants
will vary from the maximum of
$40 per month allowed by state
and federal law to the minimum
now paid.
"Frequent reference to the pay-
ment of 'pensions' is no doubt re-
sponsible for much of the exist-
ing confusion. The state does not
pay pensions to persons 65 years
of age or more, but it does grant
them public assistance, if in need,
based on their need as deter
mined by a thorough investiga-
tion. Should the state undertake
to pay pensions, it would lose
matching Federal funds which
are in the ratio of dollar for dol-
lar of state grants. Florida's
state welfare act is based on the
federal social security act and
must necessarily comply with its
provisions to obtain its benefits.
"Increasing the maximum grant
from $30 per month to $40 per
month means nothing except that
in extreme cases of need it is
possible to allow the larger
amount.
"Nothing could be more cruel
than to permit our older citi-
zens who are receiving public
assistance to entertain the delus-
ion that their grants are to be
immediately increased. On the
other hand, they are entitled to
the assurance, which I feel is
justified, that the present average
grant will be maintained until
the race track revenues are in
hand."
IMPORT OF JEWISH CAPITAL
INTO PALESTINE IS GREAT
Jerusalem (Palcor)According
to the index of the Jewish Agency
Executive in Jerusalem issued
at the end of April import of
Jewish capital into Palestine be-
tween July, 1940 and March the
figures show that during the
second half of 1940 there was a
considerable decrease in the im-
port of capital; but from Novem-
ber last and onwards there was
an increase, although it had not
reached the level of the first
three months of 194070.2 per
cent in January. 66.8 per cent in
February and 80.4 per cent in
March. It is estimated approxi-
mately that all Jewish capital
influx into Palestine in 1940 to-
talled 4,000.000 lbs.

State Comptroller J. M. Lee.
charged with its collection, is
urging retailers to make their
sworn returns and send remit-
tances to him in Tallahassee im-
mediately to avoid penalties and
help reduce the state's cost of
collection. He makes the appeal
in today's issue in an advertise-
ment which also calls attention
to the fact that gross receipts

previous months must be paid
immediately if not already paid.
In a prepared statement he points
out
"Chapter 20689. Laws of Flor-
ida. Acts of 1941 (Senate Bill 86)

4 of Chapter 16848, Acts of 1935,

However, the Act provides: 'No-

A bulletin which reviewi the
current national publications
brings us summaries of the fol-
lowing articles having a special
relevance to our problems:
Hitler's Erstaz Religion
Stanl?y High, writing on this
topic in the May issue of Reader's
D&gest says in part:
"... Convinced that they can
pervert to their own uses man's
instinctive need to believe in

the Nazis have set up a new

sati god sanctifies Nazi ambi-
tions and justifi s Nazi blood j

ity and substitute for it a hea-
then tribalism The only

b< tter bodies.' "
Hate Takes a Holiday
In the May 17th issue of Li-,
berty. Alan Hynd tells how under i
the aegis of the New Jersey
Good-Will Commission, the resi- ,
dents of Newark's congested;
neighborhoods are abandoning
their Old World prejudices and
learning to be "good Americans "
The Commission, created by the
New Jersey Legislature in 1938.
is described by the author as "an
official agency unexampled in U.
S. history." and is composed of
"Catholics. Jews, and Protes-
tants; Democrats and Republi-
cans; representatives of the Eng-
lish. German. Italian. Negro. Pol-
ish and Russian races, among
others: big and little business
and professional people and the
plain workingman and the house-
wife."
The subject of democracy, is to
be placed in the curriculum of all
high schools, with the emphasis
on the "widely diversified origins
and beliefs of individuals who
have helped mold the United
States of America' There is
a Good-Will Committee in each
of the state's counties, and if
trouble arises over "racial dis-
agreements." the local committee
goes into action. "Police blotters
throughout the state." writes Mr
Hynd. "reflect a decided drop in
quarrels originating in racial dis-
agreements "
The Jewish Problem in America
In an appended note to this
article in the June "Atlantic
Monthly." the editor announces:
"In this and successive issues,
the Atlantic will open its col-
umns to the discussion of a prob-
lem which is of the utmost gravity

alike, in the hope that a free and
forth-right debate will reduce
the pressure, now dangerously
high, and leave us with a
healthier understanding of the
human elements involved."
The problem, as Albert Jay
Nock, the writer, sees it. "is that
of maintaining a modus vivendi
between the American Jew and
his fellow-citizens which is strong
enough to stand any shocks of an
economic dislocation such as may
occur in the years ahead." For
himself, he identifies Jews as
"first class representatives of an
Oriental people with a great his-
i tory and a great tradition, wor-
thy of all respect and cordial
good will with no effort or
pretense at Occidentalizing them-
selves."
He feels that it is of the ut-
most importance that the intel-
lectual or "reflective" element in
America must be approached and
impressed with 'a sense of the
Jewish problem's urgency" since,
he says, "it is the element like-
liest to find a solution of it if one
is ever to be found."
A study of the origins and
i courses of anti-Semitism mani-
festations throughout history im-
pel him to the conclusion that
anti-Semitism is always "of pop-
ular origin." being adopted by
the state only in a "political
pinch." Consequently, he writes,
"there is now no rational ground
whatever for an optimistic per-
suasion that the Jewish problem
may be safely trusted to settle
itself if let alone."
Nock's article has caused much
discussion in Jewish circles and
will be answered by a Jewish
writer in a subsequent issue.

It is hard to realize that al-
most a year has gone by since we
held our State B'nai B'rith Con-
vention at Hollywood. A grand
time was had by all who at-
tended. The next state meeting
will be held in beautiful Day-
tona Beach on Labor Day. Day-
tona Beach is really one of Flo-
rida's show places, and is an ideal
spot for a convention. This city
has accepted the honor of con-
vention city with full realization
of its responsibility, and plans
are being made to make it an
outstanding affair. I can assure
the brethern and their wives,
that a good time is awaiting
them. Remember this date for
an interesting event.
During the year. I have
watched with great pleasure and
appreciation, the fine spirit of
co-operation prevailing through-1
out the Stateofficers, members
of committees and the member-
ship in general, taking interest
in the work and responding to
all calls for meetings in goodly
numbers. Such a healthy con-
dition has made it possible for
us to carry on and expand our
work and usefulness.
Particular praise must be paid
to Brother Louis Heiman. chair-
man of the Student Union Com-
mittee, and the members of his i
committee, for the time, energy I
and effort expended to help as-1
sure the success of our most im-;
portant activity. During the j
year, four meetings of this com-
mittee were held, one in Jack-
sonville, one in Orlando and two
in Gainesville. Many important!
decisions had to be reached, but
with the help of the interested ;
members, all problems were sue-.
cessfully faced and solved.
Until two years ago, neither
Tallahassee nor Gainesville, two
very important cities in our
State, had a Rabbi. With the ex-
tension of the Student Union pro-
gram. Rabbi Eichorn was em-
ployed to handle this work at
both communities, with the result
that an active interest yi Judaism I
was attained and each city now j
has an organized community. At :
the Hollywood meeting, it was j
decided that the plan of having |
one Rabbi take care of both com- j
munities. was too much of a I
job. even though Rabbi Eichorn
did handle this in quite a satis-1
factory manner. In accordance I
with this view, plans were con-
sidered whereby Gainesville and j
Tallahassee would each have a
full time Rabbi, caring for the
spiritual needs of the Students'
at the University of Florida and i
Women's College, as well as the!
other residents of these commu-1
nities.
On Sunday. June 21st, 1941, a!
well attended meeting of the Stu-
dent Union Committee was held!
at Gainesville, in answer to call
of the chairman. Brother Louis
Heiman. Rabbi Youngerman, a
recent graduate of the Hebrew
Union College at Cincinnati,
Ohio, who came well recom-
mended for the work by Pro-
fessor Sachar. was present. The
previous Frday night Rabbi
Youngerman had conducted ser-
vices in Gainesville in such an
outstanding manner, that the
citizens of that city are in whole-
hearted co-operntion with our
work The committee unani-
mously approved resolution that
recommendation be made to the
coming state Convention to ap-
prove plan of having two Rabbis
to handle the Student Union
work.
Other important work was
done by various committees
throughout the state the A Z
A. under the leadership of Bro-
ther Milton Friedman; Anti-De-
famation work under Brother
Barney Cohen; and Americaniza-
tion work^ under Brother Albert
E. Berkeley. In fact, all the com-
mittees were quite active.
Under the capable leadership
of Mrs. Jennie Rotfort, the Wo-
men's Auxiliaries have been very
active in B'nai B'rith activities.
Throughout the state they have
been busy handling important
problems; raising funds for Stu-
dent Union work, Refugee work,
Americanization and other points
in our program. We need the
co-operation and support of the
ladies to carry into effect our
fine program, and I urge all mem-
bers to consider this and encour-
age their wives to affiliate with
the Auxiliaries.
The membership throughout
the state has been steadily in-
creasing. Jacksonville having
shown the greatest increase. Nu-
merous inter-lodge meetings were
held and more of these meetings
should be held; for in coming to-
gether in this manner, discussing
our mutual problems, we gain
strength and enthusiasm for our
work.

FRIDAY. JULY 4. 1941 I *Jewisti tkjrkUan PAGE THREE PLANES REFUGEES PLIGHT (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) the heavily-bombed cities of Soviet-occupied Poland, Bessarabia and northern Bukovina. Reports received here indicatrd that great masses of Jews had left Wilno, Bialistok. Grodno, Pinsk, Kowel, Luck, Lwow, Tarnopol and Stanislawow. Soviet cities which have been under constant Nazi air attack. While the Soviet Red Army repulsed several attempts by combined Nazi and Rumanian forces to gain a foothold in Bessarabia and northern Bukovina, Russian authorities encouraged Jews who wished to leave those areas to move into Russia. Jews in Bessarabia were particularly apprehensive since the Rumanian radio broadcast that the hour has come" for vengeance against "Jews and Communists." The Rumanian report accused the Jews of helping Russia seize Bessarabia and of instigating the present war. A special train, packed with refugees leaving Kaunas. Sovietoccupied Lithuania, was halted by Nazi troops and forced to return. All passengers on the train were arrested and sent to concentration camps. Scores of Jews were arrested in Lithuania following the entry of Nazi troops on the charge that they were sniping at German soldiers. The Jews in Nazi-occupied Warsaw and Lublin were especially hard hit. The Nazis refused to distribute gas masks among the Jews in the ghetto while Jews were informed that they could construct their own air raid shelters. The Warsaw and Lublin ghettos are so overcrowded that the possibility of building shelters is entirely out of the question. When the hundreds of Soviet bombers roared over Warsaw and Lublin, dropping heavy bombs, the Jewish populations of those cities were completely defenseless. At the same time, Nazi authorities refused t 0 permit any Jew to leave the ghetto during the raids. Nazi officials explained that this "precaution" was necessary "in order to prevent any contact between Jews and Soviet parachutists." 3,000 YOUNGSTERS ASKED TO RELIEVE LABOR SHORTAGE Jerusalem ( Palcor ) — Threethousand boys and girls, in response to an urgent appeal from the Jewish Agency and the Vaad Leumi, have volunteered for farm labor service during the summer vacation to ease the serious labor stringency in the agricultural settlements. Upon completion of the school term the youngsters, recruited from the upper classes of the secondary schools, offered their help for rams in the Sharon, Emek Jezreel and in Galilee. Many settlers, recognizing the urgent need for expanding crop production, had appealed to the national institutions for help in getting workers to tend and harvest the crops. Graduates of this year's term who are under twenty, which is fixed by the Jewish Agency as the military enrollment age. arcbeing asked by the Agency to undertake farm labor for a year's time. Joseph E. McWilliams. New York Jew-baiter, was granted a new trial by the Court of Special Sessions.

President Washington (WNS)—The State Department must approve of all applications for visas to the United States before the consuls in the field can pass on the applications, according to new regulations made public here. The new procedure went into effect on July 1st. The State Department declared that the action was made necessary "in view of the declared emergency and the necessity from the standpoint of the national defense for careful supervision over the entry of aliens into the United States." In its announcement the State i Department said: 'The cases will be considered in proper turn by inter departmental committees acting in an advisory capacity with reference to the national defense program. "After examination of each case in the department, an appropriate communication will be sent to the consul concerned for further consideration of the case. If an interested person should wish, consideration will be given to a request to have the notification sent by telegraph at his expense to the consul. "The consul will advise the alien appropriately regarding his case and the procedure to be followed in making formal application for a visa. In a case given preliminary approval by a consul, the visa will not be granted until satisfactory evidence is submitted to show that the alien will be able to proceed to the United States within the period of the validity of his visa, and in this connection, that he has transportation reservations and reasonable expectations of obtaining an exit permit and transit visas to the port of embarkation. "When the cases are referred to the consuls the interested persons will be notified immediately. As cases will be considered and action taken by the consuls under the law strictly according to the facts of the cases, special consideration may not be accorded and should not be requested." Earlier, Undersecretary of State Breckenridge Long informed a delegation of rabbis that present conditions were too chaotic to make any promises with regard to the possibility of rescuing thousands of Jews trapped in the Baltic states by the Nazi invasion. The delegation, which included Rabbi Eliezer Silver, Rabbi Aaron Kisler, and Michael G. Tress, told Mr. Long that hundreds of rabbis, rabbinical students and others in the Baltics were in imminent danger of pogroms. BEACH STAGING ALUMINUM DRIVE FOR THIS WEEK A proclamation setting aside this week for a city wide campaign to round up all scrap aluminum has been issued by Mayor Val C. Cleary of Miami Beach. Murry Grossman was named general chairman of the campaign. Organizations which arcco-operating include the Civic League. Miami Beach Business Women's League, Kiwanis. Lions. Optimists and Elks Clubs, Junior Chamber of Commerce, American Legion post and Auxiliary and Young Men's Hebrew association. Special parking facilities have been provided near a large bin at Washington avenue and Lincoln road which will be used to receive the metal. Pickup service can be obtained by calling Peace Justice Ralph C. Pole. Business concerns of the beach are contributing 58 trucks for this se rvice. A new emergency hospital was opened in Nathania. Funeral services for Israel Silver and his wife. May will be held to day at 4 p. m. in the chapel of Gordon's Funeral Home. Both were fatally injured in an automobile accident Wednesday en route to attend the wedding of their son, Ben. who was with them, and which was to have taken place Sunday in Norfolk. Va. Rabbi Abraham Kcllncr of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, of which they were members, will officiate at the services. Mr. Silver had recently retired from business and together with his wife had planned on vacationing in Hendersonville. N. C. They leave besides their son, Ben, a son. Max, an attorney here and a daughter. Mrs. Jack August. Mrs. A. Pepper of Miami was a sister of Mrs. Silver. .WITH CEMETERY GROUP BUYS 16 ACRES COMPLETE VICTORY IN THE NORTH BELIEVED IMMINENT Complete victory in the fighting to the north is now believed to be imminent. Rumor has it that Syrian High Commissioner General Honri Fernand Dentz is planning to evacuate his troops and to acknowledge the defeat of the Vichy forces at the hands of the British and the Free French on this battleground. Althaugh it is understood here that German preoccupation with Soviet events has done much to make this victory possible, it is also hoped that once Syria is definitely aligned with the democratic Allies any real Axis threat to Palestine will have been removed. The Arabs are not being permitted to forget Hitler's original racial aspersions on them; and now that they have had a practical demonstration of what partnership with the Germans has meant to the Russians, their whole tendency has become one of co-opeartion with the British and Free French, whose definite promises of Syrian independence seem by the record to be more trustworthy. 2.600 members of the General Jewish Federation of Labor (Histadruth) are over 50 years of age: of these about 400 are over 60. At a meeting of the Greater Miami Jewish Cemetery Association held last week with a full attendance present, the association approved and entered into an agreement with the Miami Shores Memorial Park for the purchase of approximately 16 acres of burial ground. Miami Shores Memorial Park is located at 136th street and Opa Locka boulevard and the frontage of the portion purchased by the association amounting to more than 900 feet will face on the boulevard. The cemetery can be reached through a direct route, travelling north on Northwest 7th avenue which is a through thoroughfare. As soon as the deed is obtained, the cemetery association plans to start immediate development of the cemetery. This purchase consumates more than three years of efforts to purchase additional burial ground necessitated by the small amount of grave space remaining at Woodlawn Cemetery. The committee in charge of the purchasing included I. L. Mintzer. A. Pepper. Sidney Palmer. M. B. Frank. H M. Drewich and Jack August. As July 1st was the beginning of the fiscal year for the association each of the four organizations which make up the body announced the appointment of their delegates to represent them for the coming year. Beth David Congregation announced the appointments of Louis Gordon. Sidney Palmer and Burnett Roth: Beth Jacob, Harry Wasserman. M. B. Frank, I. L. Mintzer; Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, A. Pepper. H. M. Drewich, Fred Shochet; Sisterhood Chesed El Emeth. Mrs. S. Stone, Mrs. H. M. Kagan, Mrs. Louis Kotkin. George Chertkof is attorney for the group. Urban unemployment fell to a new low in the early part of the year, according to statistics just released. Mixed-farm settlements still have a labor shortage. Haifa drove off another air attack without casualtes; across the bay the ancient citadel of Acre suffered its first raid of the war. with one civilian casualty and some property damage resulting.

The official document disclosed for the first time that one of the 10 conditions of the Munich "guarantee" of the Czech frontiers was "the promulgation of anti-Semitic laws analogous to those of Nuremberg." In a chapter devoted to antiJewish atrocities, the white paper states: "Jews were arrested by thousands, without any reason, and were sen! to concentration camps. This chiefly affected rich Jewish business men. lawyers and doctors, for the arrccts were carried out by the gestapo. which took this opportunity of plundering the home of the man arrested." The white paper reported that "a number of rabbis were murdered and many hundreds of Jews escaped humiliation and torture by committing suicide." One bright ray in an otherwise dark picture, the paper emphai sized, was the staunch resistance on the part of the Czechs to tlie Nazi-inspired program of anti-1 Semitism. "The 'Aryan' Cultural Union cannot conceal the fact that the Czech public decisively condemns these brutalities." the white paper said. "Czeh customers ostentatiously visit Jewish Shops, insofar as they are still open. In Prague it became one of the ways of protesting against the Germans to go to the Jewish coffee houses." The same situation exists in Slovakia where "within recent months, the anti-Semitic policy has produced interesting effects. The Slovak public is turning away in disgust from the brutal;ties committed by the regime against the Jews and the official Slovak press has today to rebuke the Slovak public for being too iukewarm in its attitude to the anti-Jewish campaign and even for sympathizing with Jewish fellow-citizens." APPELLATE TERM REVERSES McWILLIAMS CONVICTION New York (WNS)—The appellate term of Special Sessions has set aside the conviction of Joseph E. McWilliams, violently anti-Semitic leader of the American Destiny Party, who was sentenced last October 1st to 75 days at hard labor for making abusive anti-Jewish speeches at street corner meetings, and ordered a new trial for the Yorkvillc fuehrer. McWilliams. the American Destiny Party's candidate for Congress in last fall's elections on a strictly anti-Jewish platform, had served 21 days of his sentence %  when he was released in SI.000 J bail on a certificate of reasonable doubt. As his camapign drew to a dose, McWilliams appeared nightly at various street corner meetings, spouting the usual Hitlerinspired anti Jewish epithets. Surrounded by scores of his bodyguards and henchmen, he j would frequently challenge the one or two Jews in his audience to step up and fight. The little fuehrer was arrested on the complaint of Samuel Neinian. New York button manufacturer, who charged that the antiSemite's speech was intended to incite his hearers "against the Jewish faith by the use of offensive, disorderly, threatening, and abusive and insulting language." In reversing the McWilliams conviction, the higher court declared that the issues in the trial were "largely subordinated to the exploration of extraneous matters." The court ordered a new trial for McWilliams within two weeks. (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) Justine Wise Polier, who is the daughter of Dr. Stephen S.

All Rooms with Private and Connecting Baths ed the sudden raids to the fact that three "free" radio stations have been operating inside Germany since the beginning of the Russian-German war. All gestapo efforts to locate the secret radio stations have been unavailing so far. The gestapo agents launched their drive against the Jews to cover up their failure to uncover the operators of the democratic stations which go on the air every night at the appointed hour. Meanwhile, Italy, which proclaimed to the world that it had joined in the war against Russia, confined its war activities for Hie present to lethal blows delivered over the radio. Borrowing a page from Hitler's speech, the Italian radio summed up the whole situation: "The British people need no longer ask what ore the aims of the war they have been compelled to fight. Those aims are perfectly clear now, so clear that even a blind man with a minimum of brains left unaffected by Duff Cooper's propaganda would be able to see the aim. And the aim is simply this one: "The Jews of all political colors and shades of opinion have now joined together to fight anything and anybody who refuses to accept their domination, the domination of the 'chosen people.' Capitalist Jews and anti-capitalist Jews, plutocratic Jews and Communist Jews have united to attain world domination and to prevent anti-Jewish countries from freeing the workers from the tyranny of individual Jewish capitalism and a state owned by the Jewish-controlled capitalism." ASKS CLARIFICATION OF NEW IMMIGRATION ORDERS London (WNS)—The British government has instructed Lord Halifax, British ambassador to the United States, to visit the American State Department in Washington for further information regarding the new U. S. immigration order barring visas to refugees with close relatives in totalitarian countries. it was learned here. The interest of the British government in the new immigration ruling was explained by a semiofficial spokesman who pointed out that Britain had given entry to several thousand refugees from Nazi-dominated countries on the condition that they emigrate to the United States as soon as possible. Pending additional information from Washington, Britain will make no decision regarding these refugees, it was said.

These newspapers suggest thai the blanket order which leaves thousands o: Ncnri victims in Nazi hands should be revoked, and a Congressional investigation committee be established to look into our immigration policy. They insist that it is the duty of the Immigration Department to be able to discriminate between the term 'Nazi' and German. Other projects advanced for the modification of the blanket order suggest that refugees be admitted as hitherto but to temporary concentration camps in the U. S. A. They argue that an American concentration camp-would be a paradise compared to a German one for those seeking refuge from the Nazis. They also point out that these camps would not be a public burden since they would be maintained either by the interested relief organisations or by their American relatives. Meanwhile, the State Department issued a supplementary ruling intended to cieaT up misunderstandings. This ruling, which enters into effect on July 1st—when the new quota year starts—takes from American consuls abroad the right to issue any visas whatsoever and transfers these rights to a special Immigration Department in Washington. In other words, if Washington is satisfied to have the refugee admitted, his application for c visa will be favorably dealt with and he will be admitted. Jewish and non-Jewish relief agencies interested in helping refugees to come to this country will be able to maintarn contact with the special department in Washington through the President s Advisory Committee on Political Refugees, which has hitherto been very helprul to these agencies and of which 'antes G McDonald is chairmen.

The assemoied Rabbis expressed their appreciation of the fact that the General Jewish Council had given adequate recognition to organized religious forces as represented by the Synagogue Council of America. The resolution regarding the General Jewish Council read: "In v 'ew of the difficulties which developed within the General Jewish Council, causing one of the major bodies to withdraw, and in view of other criticisms which have been directed at the form or organization and program of activities of the Council, we regard it as of primary importance to convene at the earliest time a meeting of all in(CONTINUED ON PAOE •) RUSSIAN CHRISTIANS PRAY FOR VICTORY OVER HITLER Bradley Beach. N. J. (WNS) —The 33rd annual convention of the American Federation of Polish Jews pledged complete support for "the restoration of a great democratic Poland" and cheered the promise of Premier Sikorski of the exiled Polish government that "in the future Poland, following victory for the democracies, there will be no room for reactionaries and antiSemitism." EAST IS EASED BY NAZ! OFFICIALS E London (WNS)—Evidence that jhe Soviet campaign against reJ'g'on has not been too successful was furnished in an indirect *ay when the Moscow radio rePorted that churches and synagogues were packed with persons offering special prayers for a Russian victory against Hitlerism. W addition to offering special Prayers for victory, congrega"ns chanted the traditional Prayer f or the dead in memory or the Jews killed since the beginning of the war, the Moscow r aio said. Stockholm (WNS)—The 15.000 Jews drafted for compulsory service in special Jewish labor camps near Warsaw have been sent to their homes following a decision by the Nazi military authorities closing down all Jewish labor camps in the vicinity of the Nazi-Soviet battle line, it is reported here. The report, published in the Gazeta Zydowska, the official Jewish newspaper in Nazi-occupied Poland, conflicted with earlier reports which stated that the Nazis had ordered the execution of many Jews in the camps. The first report said that Nazi authorities had recommended the shooting of Jews who had been working on special military roads and fortifications. The Nazis were reported to have said that the Jews would use the military secrets to wreck the Hitler regime. The camps were closed, it was learned here, to clear the battle area of all Jews, presumably to prevent them from crossing into Russian lines. At the same tune, Jews were ousted from Grojec, Lowicz. Sochaczew. Blonie and other districts west of the Vistula river. Meanwhile, the Nazi administration launched a campaign urging the Poles to condemn the actions and statements of the Polish government-in-exile in London, which, according to the Nazi press, "is ready to sell Poland to Jews and Communists." YOUNG ISRAEL PARLEY FOR JEWISH ARMY IN PALESTINE Jerusalem (WNS)—With the full strength of the Nazi army reported hurled against Soviet Russia, military experts here agreed that an Axis invasion of Palestine in the near future was very unlikely. Both Jews and Arabs received the news of the RussianGerman war with unconcealed joy. Though the new developments in the European war eased the tension throughout the Near East Palestine's Jewish leaders warned against any weakening of the country's defense program. Defense preparations continued unabated and hundreds of Jewish youths besieged recruiting stations to volunteer for service with the British forces. Another source of heartening news to the Palestine Jewish community were the reports from Syria and Lebanon where the British and Free French forces are continuing their advances.

FASCISTS BODY OF UKRAINIANS ARE BUSY IN U. S. New York (WNS)—With the Germans driving against Russia, Ukrainian-American Fascists have shifted into high gear their extensive and intricate fifth column machine in the United States, according to The Hour, well-informed anti-Fascist weeklyThe Hour charged that the anti-Semitic Ukrainian Fascists. acting on instructions from Nazi Germany, "arc redoubling all propaganda, espionage and sabotage efforts on this continent." "A pact of old standing exists between Hitler and the Ukrainian Fascists." The Hour declared. Several years ago Dor Fuehrer promised to put their leaders in power when he took over the Ukraine. In exchange, the Ukrainian Fascists agreed to carry on vigorous pro-Nazi fifth column activity not only in the Soviet Union itself, but also throughout all of Europe and wherever Ukrainians have settled in other parts of the world." The Hour named the ODWU (Organization for the Rebirth of the Ukraine) and the Hetman, fanatically nationalist and terrorist groups, as the major Ukrainianan Fascist groups in this country.

Immediately after their occupation of the country, the Nazis ordered the transfer of all Jewish-owned property to German 'Aryan" control. The Czech document reported: "Jewish concerns were transferred only to German hands. The 'Aryan' commissars in them, with large salaries, were in every case German.

The Jewish community will be held responsible for the collection of the funds and the payment of the fine on a specified date. The Nazi officials announced the fine after accusing the Jews of organizing a Greek demonstration against Nazi troops in Salonika. This was the first news received here of a large scale anti-Nazi demonstration in Greece. In addition to the fine, Nazi authorities instructed leaders of the Salonika Jewish community to provide daily 3,000 Jews for compulsory labor. Failure to comply with this order, the Nazis warned, will result in severe repressive measures. GESTAPO IN MASS PRAGUE, VIENNA Ankara (WNS)—Day and night Gestapo raids against Jews in Berlin, Prague and Vienna were reported as the Nazi secret police raised the charge that Jews in Germany and Nazi-occupied territories were conspiring with Soviet Russia to overthrow the Nazi regime, it was reported here.

The gestapo agents showed their displeasure at their failure to find the alleged documents by smashing furniture and seizing scores of Jews for questioning.

rt lPAY. JULY 4, 1941 I NO IMMEDIATE IKS FOR OLD E Jacksonville (Special)—To cor„* a possible misunderstandm regarding recent legislative ncreases in old age assistance 'unds R E McDonald^chairman of the District 9 Welfare Board. today issued a statement in which he pointed out that these additional funds would not be %  nibble before May 1st, 1942. He cautioned old age assistance recipients not to expect any immediate increase in grants. The statement follows: •Increased applications and increased repuests for larger grants, indicate that there is some confusion in the public mind regarding the payment of old age assistance in Florida. This is most unfortunate, and is no doubt directly due to hasty reading of news stories that were published during the legislative session "The fact is that the legislature reappropriatod the same amount for Old Age Assistance Aid to the Blind, administrative costs and participation in such Federal progran-.s as the distribution of surplus commodities as in 1939 and in 1937. with the exception that it provided for a 5 cent tax on money wagered on horse tracks and seized the "odd cents breaks" at horse tracks. Since the horse tracks do not open until late this year and are allowed to operate for 100 days, is i iv evident that none of the new revenue will be available before May 1, 1942, as the counties must first be paid the same amount us for the previous year. As the state is prohibited from borrowing, it will be impossible to spend this money before it is actually received, even if it were business to do so. "When the new money is available, it is hoped that it will be in sufficient amount to permit the increasing of the average grant for Old Age Assistance from the present $13 per month to $23 per month However, this does not mean that every recipient *.Je*istrhridltori PAGE SEVEN will be paid the same then or now. The reverse is true. Each grant will be based on the need of the recipient and the grants will vary from the maximum of $40 per month allowed by state and federal law to the minimum now paid. "Frequent reference to the payment of 'pensions' is no doubt responsible for much of the existing confusion. The state does not pay pensions to persons 65 years of age or more, but it does grant them public assistance, if in need, based on their need as deter mined by a thorough investigation. Should the state undertake to pay pensions, it would lose matching Federal funds which are in the ratio of dollar for dollar of state grants. Florida's state welfare act is based on the federal social security act and must necessarily comply with its provisions to obtain its benefits. "Increasing the maximum grant from $30 per month to $40 per month means nothing except that in extreme cases of need it is possible to allow the larger amount. "Nothing could be more cruel than to permit our older citizens who are receiving public assistance to entertain the delusion that their grants are to be immediately increased. On the other hand, they are entitled to the assurance, which I feel is justified, that the present average grant will be maintained until the race track revenues are in hand." IMPORT OF JEWISH CAPITAL INTO PALESTINE IS GREAT Jerusalem (Palcor)—According to the index of the Jewish Agency Executive in Jerusalem issued at the end of April import of Jewish capital into Palestine between July, 1940 and March the figures show that during the second half of 1940 there was a considerable decrease in the import of capital; but from November last and onwards there was an increase, although it had not reached the level of the first three months of 1940—70.2 per cent in January. 66.8 per cent in February and 80.4 per cent in March. It is estimated approximately that all Jewish capital influx into Palestine in 1940 totalled 4,000.000 lbs. RETAIL LICENSE A! INVENTORY E With the retail license and inventory tax due as of July 1st. State Comptroller J. M. Lee. charged with its collection, is urging retailers to make their sworn returns and send remittances to him in Tallahassee immediately to avoid penalties and help reduce the state's cost of collection. He makes the appeal in today's issue in an advertisement which also calls attention to the fact that gross receipts taxes for receipts for May and previous months must be paid immediately if not already paid. In a prepared statement he points out "Chapter 20689. Laws of Florida. Acts of 1941 (Senate Bill 86) repealed Subdivision B, Section 4 of Chapter 16848, Acts of 1935, relating to Gross Receipts Taxes. However, the Act provides: 'Nothing contained in this repeal Act shall be interpreted to affect or to excuse or relieve any person from payment of Gross Receipts Taxes imposed under said Chapter 16848, whicch shall have accrued prior to July 1st, 1941.' "It is. therefore, necessary that a return reporting Gross Receipts in full up to and including the month of May, 1941, (including FREE PRESS By HARRY KOVNER Having been born a free man And a child of the articulate masses.
