FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JULY 11, 1941 PRICE 10 CENTS VICE PRESIDENT OF BNAI B'RITH DIES SUDDENLY San Francisco, Cal.—Judge I. M. Golden, national vice-president of B'nai B'rith, and one of the outstanding Jewish leaders of the Pacific Coast, died suddenly ;it his home here last week, at the ago of 63. Funeral services coincided with special memorial services in the Washington headpuarters o f B'nai B'rith, where department heads and staff members assembled to hear the B'nai B'rith ritual and eulogy of Judge Golden delivered by Maurice Bisgyer, secretary of the Order. At Mackinac Island. Michigan, Henry Monsky, president of B'nai B'rith, paid tribute to JudgeGolden during the annual convention of District No. 6. A remarkable civic demonstration marked Judge Golden's funeral. A continuous stream of Catholics knelt in prayer beside the casket. Judge Golden, past president of District No. 4, was also a past president of the Pacific Coast region of the Zionist Orgonization of America, and its honorary president until his death. He was also a member ot the national executive committee of the Z. O. A. He was a delegate to the World Zionist Congress two years ago, and while there he conferred with B'nai B'rith leaders from all parts of Europe. NATIONAL UNITY STRESSED FOR SERVICE CAMPS IN U. S. New York (WNS)—A handbook on national unity entitled "Calling All Americans" has been issued by the Council Against Intolerance in America for use by group leaders in the Selective Service Camps throughout the United States, by service organizations, and by recreation centers in communities near the Camps. Possessing evidence that divisive propaganda is being used by the Nazis to disrupt morals in the Camps, the Council Against Intolerance holds that the ideals of democracy must be reaffirmed and that the basic principles of mutual tolerance and equality need to be emphasized among the men who are in service. Pitting race against race, creed againts creed the Nazis have, in many countries successfully disrupted national unity. "Calling All Americans" seeks to prevent division within American ranks. WOMETCO THEATRES WILL LOWER. PRICE TO ENLISTEES Mitchell Wolfson and Sidney Meyer, operators of the Wometco Theatres in Greater Miami, in line with the policy of motion picture theatres throughout the United States in their effort to assist the defense program, will admit all service men in uniforms to any of their theatres for an admission charge of 20c. This is in line with the aims of the United Service Organization in aiding service men to obtain the best in recreatlpn and place it within their means. This price is also effective for any British cadets in this area. Jewish Soldiers^ On Inactive List Stockholm (WNS)—The Finnish War Ministry had issued instructions to its field commanders ordering all Jewish' officers and soldiers placed on the inactive list, it was reported here. General Mannherheim, leading Finland's army against Soviet Russia, has already withdrawn all Jewish soldiers from the Russian-Finnish border. Neutral sources here stated that Nazi Germany had scored another diplomatic victory since the War Ministry order implied that Jewish soldiers were not to be trusted since they were all Communist agents. 12,0(10 POLISH JEWS ARRESTED BY HUNGARIANS 500 VICTIMS ARE MACHINE-GUNNED IN OPEN FIELD Istanbul (WNS) — Another bloody chapter was added to the history of Nazi-dominated Rumania when a Rumanian military court ordered the execution of 500 Jews who were rounded up in the streets of Jassy and accused of being Communist agents. Turkish journalists returning here from blood-soaked Rumania, the scene of at least three antiJewish pogroms in recent years, brought back tales of horror and brutality which shocked even circles hitherto considered unfriendly to Jews. Stung at the inability of the combined German and Rumanian forces to make any headway in their drive on Soviet-occupied Bessarabia and northern Bukovina, the Rumanian government, headed by the anti-Semitic Premier Ion Antonescu, unloosed a drive against "Jewish Communists" in Rumanian cities near the Soviet-Rumanian border. Rumanian police swooped down on the Jewish quarter of Jassy and quickly loaded 500 bewildered Jews into police wagons. The Jews were sped to the nearest military court and given a "trial." The Jews, labelled by London (WNS)—The Hungarian government ordered 22.000 Jews living in villages and towns bordering on the Soviet frontiers to abandon their homes and possessions and move into the interior of Hungary, it was reliably reported here. Hungary's declaration of war against Soviet Russia was accompanied by a vicious anti-Jewish campaign which has few precedents in modern history, the report said. At the same time, the Hungarian government ordered the arrest of 12.000 Polish Jews. The Jews affected by the order were born in that part of Poland seized by Soviet Russia after the Nazi army had invaded Poland in 1939. All Jews in Hungary between the ages of 20 and 40 were notified to report for compulsory laber and were sent to construct roads and military fortifications near the Soviet border. The daily press is full of antiJewish "atrocity stories" of the lowest type. No distinction is made between Jews and Communists, the press and radio referring to all Jews as Communists. The agitation has become so violent that Jews shun the streets. Most of the synagogues in Budapest are closed since Jewish leaders fear mob attacks on their congregations. 3,000 Russians Jailed In France Vichy (WNS)—Close to 2,000 Jews were among the 3.000 persons of Russian origin rounded up by the police in Marseille and held for questioning, it was learned here. Among those arrested were Zalman Schneour, the poet, and his wife, who were held for hours. Meanwhile, the French newspaper Paris-Midi, reported in a dispatch from Beirut that 300 Jews were killed and 1.500 injured by Arabs in an anti-Jewish demonstration in Baghdad. The newspaper declared that the Jews themselves were responsible for the pogrom. THOUSANDS ARE KILLED DURING NEW LAW TD OUST JEWS FROM ITALY; (CONTINUED ON PAGE 4) BlMfiil TO PROVIDE TORAHS FOR ARMY MEN Washington (WNS)B'nai B'rith is launching a nation-wide campaign among its 1.000 men s and women's units to obtain Sefer Torahs for use during Jewish religious services to be held in the non-sectarian chapels being built at more than 500 army posts and camps by the Federal government, it was announced here by Henry Monsky, P*ident of B'nai B'rith and chairman of its national defense committee. All Torahs that are borrowed will be returned after the emergency has ended. Torahs that are purchased by B'nai Bnth units will be turned over to Jewish religious institutions. Berne (WNS)—A new antiJewish law, providing for the expulsion of all Jews from Italy except those exempt by "favorable discrimination." has been drafted by the Italian government and will be put into effect following formal approval by the Council of Ministers, it was reported here. Italian officials hailed the new anti-Jewish decree as marking the total liquidation of the Jewish problem in Italy. While no definite date was set for the expulsion of the Jewish population, semi-official sources stated that the Jews will be given from six months to five years to wind up their affairs and leave the counThe law assigns the Jewish population to three categories. In the first category are all Jews whose families have at least one member of pure "Aryan" stock. These Jews wMl be "Aryanized and will not be subject to the anti-Jewish regulations. Jews who can prove that they performed "patriotic services will be placed in the category of "favorable discrimination" and will be permitted to apply for "Aryanization." The families of Jews whose applications are approved will be given all the rights of Italian citizens but will not Company, a post in which he has (CONTINUED ON PAGE B) Geneva (WNS)—Thousands of Jews were reported killed and thousands more injured as the Nazi army instigated anti-JewiSh pogroms and massacres in the territories wrested from the fiercely-resisting Soviet army. While the two mighty armies were locked in a bitter struggle along a 1,200 mile front, the Nazi propaganda machine attempted to set Eastern Europe aflame with hatred by spreading antiJewish propaganda which cost many thousands of Jews in Lithuania, Latvia. Hungary, Rumania. Bulgaria and Poland their lives. The official Nazi radio reported that hundreds of Jews were slain in street fighting which preceded the Nazi occupation of Soviet Lithuania. Hundreds more were arrested on charges of espionage in behalf of the Soviet government. They are now awaiting trial before a Nazi military court with a death sentence hanging over their heads. It was believed, however, that Soviet Russia had evacuated thousands of other Jews into the Russian interior. Arrests of Jews and pillaging of Jewish shops followed the REFUGEES AT CASABLANCA TO BE RESCUED Lisbon (W N S)—Arrangements have been completed to have the Portuguese liner Guinea make a special stop at Casablanca t.i rescue the 200 Jewish refugees who were stranded there when the Vichy government ordered the French ships bringing the refugees to America to return to Casablanca, it was announced by the Joint Distribution Committee here. All the refugees have visas to the United States. A representative of the HIAS-ICA Emigration Association has already left for Casablanca from Marseille to expedite the departure of the refugees. It was believed that the refugees would be en route to the United States before the end of the month. A special investigation will be made also of the status of Jewish internees there, many of whom are reported to have visas for Mexico and South America. Meanwhile, the J. D. C. and the* HIAS-ICA have begun to register all refugees here who have been accorded, but not yet issued, visas to America and will forward their cases to Washington. According to the new American immigration regulations, the State Department in Washington must pass on all applications for visas before consuls in the field will be allowed to issue visas. CHARGES COLUMBIA UNIV. WITH BEING ANTI-SEMITIC (CONTINUED ON PAGE 8) HEADS AIR FLEET DF SOVIET RUSSIA Zurich (WNS)—The Berlin radio adressing itself directly to Nicholas Murray Butler, president of Columbia University charged the university which he heads with harboring anti-Semitism. The speaker over the Berlin radio was Olio Koischwitz, former professor at Hunter College. He charged that "the percentage of Jewish staff members has been kept as low as possible at Columbia. The Horace Mann School "does not accept any Jewish children at all" and Lincoln school "has a definite quota." "Now, it is perfectly upderstandable that you have certain restrictions," Koischwitz said. "Why not? But why is it not admitted that these restrictions exist? Why is it stated that the principle of absolute equality and equal opportunity for all is emphasized all the time if you don't live up to it?" London (WNS)—General Jacob Shmushkevitch, 43 year old commanding officer of the Soviet air fleet, now engaged in a death struggle against Hitler's Luftwaffe, is a Lithuanian Jew, the son of a poor Jewish tailor, it was disclosed here. He enlisted in the Red Army during the revolution and helped defeat the White Guardist troops under the command of General Deniken. Following the revolution, he was sent to a military school. Some years later he turned to aviation and become one of the country's most famed pilots. JEWISH LEADERS SPUR NEW RECRUITS FOR PALESTINE Jerusalem (WNS)—Enlistment in Palestine's armed forces was spurred by the joint proclamation issued by the Jewish Agency and the Jewish National CouncH calling upon all unmarried Jews between the ages of twenty and thirty to volunteer for active service. Jewish leaders stiessed that the Palestine volunteer force and settlement police have been enlarged to include 25.000 men and will be used for defense purposes throughout the country. Palestine was relatively quiet all week. I I, J HHIlSBHHiHBH^BHHsRfnfl^B %  MjUM&^HBBE :

Florida, under tna v.: o March I, 1171 SUBSCRIPTION 51 VICTIMS ARE ONE YEAR SIX MONTHS $2.00 SI. 00 MIAMI FLORIDA. FRIDAY, JULY 11. 1941 VOLUME 14 NUMBER 28 CLASS CITIZENSHIP IN U. S. The noted columnist Westbrook Pegler came out last week with a rather alarming and un-American suggestion. He urges that: 1. Naturalization of aliens shoujd be introduced in the U. S. United States. 2. A distinction should be introduced in the U. S. A between citizens who are American-born and those naturalized. 3. Naturalized citizens should be barred from State and Municipal positions. He admits that his suggestions amount to the introduction of class A and class B" citizenship and that this is rather against the American Constitution Dut points out that the Constitution can be amended and that many Americans will favor such an amendment. Pegler justifies his suggestions with the plea that what America needs now is more protection against aliens who, though enjoying the privilege of living in the U. S. A. still entertain sympathies for their native lands. Pegler fails, however, to see'that true as it may be that members of the Nazi-Bund in America are more interested in Hitler than in the United States, W that members of the Communist party in America are more interested in Stalin than in the democratic principles lor which America stands a very large proportion of them are not at all aliens but American-born. Pegler himself recently carried in one of his columns a long list of names to prove that among the leading communists in this country are plenty of Americans— non-Jews and non-immigrants. This is true to even a greater extent of the Nazi-Bund, of the Silver Shirts, of the McWilliamses cad others who ballyhoo themselves as 100 percent Americans but are openly serving the interests of Hitler. Perhaps the best argument against Pegler's suggestion is the tact that on the week Pegler urged the introduction of "class B" citizenship for naturalized Americans, the very same week, the FBI arrested a number of dangerous Nazi spies in this country some of whom were native-born, the kind of Americans whom Pegler would not oust from Government positions. On the Other hand who in the United States does not know that the Daturaliaed Americans are more appreciative of their American citizenship than some who acquired this citizenship by birth. lust because they have been born in Europe they can appreciate what this country stands for better than even those who were bom here. Mr. Pegler's new law, for example, would degrade to second class citizens such men as Knudson, who is in charge of gearing our defense production and his "lirf nl Sidney Hillman. '.: sc happened that a few days before Pegler's recommendatiODi were published. Supreme Court Justice William Douglas broadcasting from San Francisco, touched on the very same subject or. which Pegler dwelt in two lengthy columns—on the subject c: citizenship and morale. Here is what the Supreme Court justice sa-.i There must r.c: grew up in this country any second or fourth ekm cimer.sr.ip There is enly one class of citizenship in this ccur.ry. There is no room for any inferior grade. Where one r.c* b ee n al lowed the result has been the downward spiral c: disunity Then hate end intolerance has been incorporated."

Hands of Mercv Across the Sea IN OPEN FIELD CONTINUED FROM PACE 1) the prosecutor as Communist saboteurs who had given vital military secrets to the Soviet government and had sniped at Nazi and Rumanian soldiers from the rear, were not permitted to Cfldl witnesses or to defend themselves Most of the Jews seized in the raid were not even identified before the court which handed down a mass indictment. After hearing %  e vidence" gathered by the police, the military tribunal sentenced the 500 Jews to death by a firing squad. The Jews were so stunned by the raid and the subsequent wholesale "trial" that they remained silent throughout the brief proceeding. When sentence was announced, however, a number of Jews rose to their feet and warned the court that Rumania would soon pay for the killing of innocent men for the ruthless negation of all human decencies. The victims were then taken to the outskirts of Jassy and lined up before firing squads with machine guns. The majority of the Jews were young, many not even 20 years old. Their last request for permission to see their families were rejected. Following the mass execution, a delegation of Jewish leaders from Jassy approaoSed the government for permission to bury the victims in Jewish cemeteries. Government authorities refused the request and ordered the wives and immediate families of the murdered Jews to dig a huge pit at the scene of the executions. Pitiful scenes were enacted at the field when the grief-stricken families were forced to watch soldiers throw the bullet-riddled bodies into the pit. The entire Rumanian Jewish population is in a state of panic as a result of the new government anti-Jewish drive. Bucharest has announced that all Jews convicted of aiding or hiding Communist agents would be executed together with their families. An official statement said: "The Soviets employ every means cf sabotage, disorder and aggression behind the front. They have parachutists, spies, terrorists and other agents who contact their local agents and the Jewish Communist population for the purpose of organizing acts of aggression." At the same time the Rumanian government ordered thousands of Jews living in cities and villages near the Russian-Ruta war zone to leave their bomes The order was made necessary, a government spokesman explained, because the Jews were C. mmun&t sp:-,.-" 'B'NAI B'RITH MEN.

Word has gone out to 1.300 lodges, auxiliaries and chapters of Aieph Zadek Aleph. B'nai IB'rith's youth organization, to cooperate to the fullest extent with ... state, local, county and other governmental agencies as well as with state and city defense councils in the effort to salvage some 50.000.000 pounds of aluminum THAT JEWISH ARMY We wonder where Broadway columnist Danton Walker got this story, which he published in his column last week ... "A story is due to break soon," he announced, "about an underground Jewish army operating in Palestine, numbering about 10,000 fully equipped men, with a reserve of 15,000 others, ready to defend their homeland when the time comes Their arms, the story goes, were bought from the Arabs" The story, of course, is pure (if not kosher ) balonev The official Zionist leadership still contends that nothing can be done about a Jewish army before the British government permits its formation The New Zionist Organization, on the other hand, believes that Great Britain's hand must be forced by Jewish action So before long the New Zionist Organization is going to start a registration campaign in this country asking Jewish youths whether they would volunteer in a Jewish army providing their draft obligations and U. S. government regulations permit The Revisionist leaders think that if a sufficient number of Jews signify their intention of joining up, British official circles will move faster on the whole proposition WAR ECHOES Should Hitler succeed in his blitzkrieg against Russia, he will sponsor the most stupendous pogroms in Jewish history This in line with his promise to "save" Russia by exterminating her "Jewish Communists" Incidentally, don't miss Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver's chapter about Jewish life in the Soviet Union, in his book "The World Crisis and Jewish Survival" It is courageous, sincere appraisal which many of the rabid Zionist anti-Sovietists will find far from pleasing We don't, as a rule, have much confidence in Mr. Wythe Williams' predictions or "private information" We hope, however, that he was right the other day when he announced that he knows ihat Julius Streicher, anti-Semitic Number One of Naziland, has been executed And when he told us that Mr. Hitler is a virtual prisoner in the hands of the German army we fervently murmured: "Allewei" Members of the Nazi embassy staff at Washington are taking bets that the Red army will have ceased to be a military factor by July 27th They've found few American military experts ready to risk their money by taking up such a wager, but it is said that several Soviet embassy staff members have, through stooges, placed quite a bit of money on the proposition that July 27th will see the Russo-German war in a still undecided state Right here, incidentally, we want to remark that we don't like Danton Walker's remark about the "blitzkrieg" between Russia and Germany ... It sounds like a crack that might have originated in Bundist circles SCREEN SHADOWS The best line on Hitler's attack on Russia comes from Hollywood ... It seems that the Hollywood generals were as amazed as all the other military experts at the sudden Nazi onslaught on Adalf's former pact partner ... But James K. Mc Guiness, who apparently burned many a dram of midnight oil over "Mem Kampf," has explained it all to the gentlemen of the studios There's nothing puzzling about the whole business, he claims Hitler has simply gone back to shooting his fust script Flash: Charlie Chaplin is very seriously considering the making of a new Hitler film, to deal with the story of Hitler as a prisoner on St. Helena ... He is said to have told some of his intimates that he thinks he'd better start now. lest he miss the bus (referring to the fact that it takes him two years to make a picture) ... So that you won't be disappointed, we'll tell you right now that the British film "Prime Minister." which will be coming to this country in the fall, is not about Winston Churchill ... Its hero is Disraeli Among the recent arrivals from Europe is a gentleman by the name of Rabinowitz, who, until a year ago was undisputedly the outstanding producer of French films Before that he had been a topnotch producer of German Ufa films When Hitler took over Germany, Dr. Goebbels called on Mr. Rabinowitz with an offer to make him an 'honorary Aryan" if he would continue with Ufa and produce Nazi propaganda films Rabinowitz declined without thanks, and moved to France Last year, when Otto Abetz became Hitler's gauleiter in France, the same offer was again extended to Mr. Rabinowitz His reply was to leave for America at the earliest possible moment \ And now Hollywood is hot on his trail MUSIC DEPARTMENT Fritz Kreisler, the violin virtuoso, has practically recovered from his serious accident of a couple of months ago But iS 36 u the renownea pianist, is critically ill Violinist Mischa Elman was buring up the other night—and it wasn't due to the torrid spell, either ... He was to play with the WPA symphony orchestra on a special music and national defense broadcast, and when he and his fiddle arrived in the NBC building the elevator operator directed him to the freight elevator, the building's rule being that musicians carrying instruments aren't permitted to ride in the passenger elevators Getting red in the face. Mr. Elman shouted: "Do you know who I am?" Looking him up and down, the up-and-downer coldly retorted: "I don't care if you're Jack Benny himself—you sail can I ride in this car" ... The late Ignace Paderewski did not like Jews very much, though he wasn't really a convinced antiSemite ...

London (WNS)—Soviet Russia plans to cease its opposition to religion and will shortly issue a decree, declaring its new policy, according to the London Reynolds News. The paper enjoys a reputation for being particularly well informed on foreign matters. Simultaneously it is reported here that Jewish young men Of Soviet Russia are volutarily enlisting in the Soviet armies in unusually great numbers, spurred by the strong desire to defeat Hitlerism. The number of students enlisting is especially large. The enthusiasm shown by the Russian Jews is so outstanding as to provoke general comment. The Soviet radio has branded as completely false the story which appeared in the Swedish press to the effect that Lembcrg Jews enthusiastically received the invading Nazi army. Attacks on Jews in the Nazi occupied territories have grown Into a mass campaign, bringing terror to scores of thousands of Jews Fear prevails among the Jews that the action of Rumania I where 500 Jews were executed Oil the Communist pretext, will be imitated generally. Already | in Bulgaria, thirty persons of j whom seven were Jews have suffered the same fate on the same pretext The Slovak government, always alert to show the identity of its aims with the Nazis with regard to Jews, in an official statement announced the arrest of 700 persons under the Communist accusation. The statement declared that the majority are Jews. They will be speedily arraigned before a military tribunal and their execution is a foregone conclusion. The Italian radio also broadcasts that Jews predominated among the hundreds arrested in Bratislava. Slovakia. TRIBUTE IS JEWISH TROOPS OF PALESTINE CIVIL LIBERTIES ARE NOT CURBED REPORT STATES New York (WNS)—While acknowledging that "growing intolerance of minorities out of step with the national effort" is in evidence, the American Civil Liberties Union declared in its 21st annual report that the defense program and the unlimited national emergency have to date resulted in "remarkable few casualties" in the field of civil liberties. Pointing out that "no Federal prosecutions for opinion have j been undertaken despite the po• wer in law to do so." the Civil Liberties Union reported that a • number of decisions handed down by the United States Supreme Court had strengthened civil rights at many places. The report declared that in more than half of the State Legislatures, bills designed to curb the political rights of the Communist party or of the GermanAmerican Bund had not been passed "largely on the persuasive argument that it is sounder policy to keep in the open, rather than to drive underground, movements with foreign loyalties."

"Those Palestinians worked well in Greece and stood UD splendidly to the large scaleattacks to which they were subjected." General Wilson wrote speaking for General Wave:..

In the case of school teachers, the Board of Education of the Hebrew School System has ruled that all unmarried teachers between the ages of twenty and thirty must enlist.

HUDAY, IULY 11. 1941 *JewistfhrHiar PAGE SEVEN TXXPAYERS HAVE HEIR PROBLEM FRONT STEPS Florida's taxpayers—past present and prospective— at last have their problem back on their own fron: door steps, right at home and :n their own hands, according to State Comptroller J. M Lee, whc after spending ten days working out instructions for official in connection with the new tax laws, took time out to prepare for readers of The Jewish Floridiar. a few words for the benefit of the men and women who are on the paying end of these new statutes. With the bugaboo of state taxation eliminated from the propertv tax structure "folks back home" can pay as much or as little as they want, is the way Con-.rtrnller Lee sees it. The H iti position now is solely that of umpire—to insure, by strict supervision under the provisions of th new statutes, that the burden ...sired by the folks back hon.t is fairly distributed among those same folks, who after deciding what they want to pay are :.,. with the job of paying it. 1 re are two important firsts right now— according to the Comptroller. They are: See your tax assessor right away to make IUI you get your proper excmpnd that he doesn't figure r g on values—because he'll havi > figure by himself under lhes< new laws if you dont functii: N'o more can you "ride'" with ." getting on the tax books. ThatMr. Taxpayer's job, the 0 .oiler says, not the editor's. | nrr • tax collector's nor the tax assessor's. "We've got ways of finding out who owns personal property, stock and bonds, and we're going to get the data from corporation returns to the secretary of state, from income tax returns to Uncle Sam and from wherever we can find it. Taxpayers can save themselves trouble and grief and the state money by seeing the county assessor right now" he says. The other "first' for the man who will have to pay 1941 taxes is to see his county commissioners and school board members about the budget, says the Comptroller. Whether taxes go up or down depends entirely on those gentlemen and how effectively Mr. Taxpayer talks to them. They fix the millage. And all the assessor does is find the value. The new law says the valuation must be increased—maybe four times, maybe three times—in your county. It also says the millage shall come down—but that rests in the laps of the taxpayers themselves and the members of th6se two boards. Taxpayers should see them right now while budgets are being prepared. Next month will be too late. Then the taxpayer should see his tax collector before the 15th —or his name may show up in the paper as delinquent, and more costs added. Names of those delinquent for 1940 personal and intangible taxes must be published in the newspaper July 15th. If you haven't paid you can save this embarassment and some extra costs too. It's got to be paid this year—there's no "misses" going to be allowed your tax collector, according to the Comptroller. Mr. Taxpayer should be taxconscious by the time he does | these things—and that should lead him to a policy of participating in the business of his | county. Meetings of com missionJEWISH OFFICER RECEIVES CROSS, NAZI AUTHORITIES ORDER GREEK SYNAGOGUES SHUT London ( W N S )—Lieutenant Commander M. M. Bright, highest ranking Jewish officer in the British Navy, has been awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for "wholehearted devotion to duty," it was announced here. The Jewish naval officer, former president of a lodge of the Order Achei Brith Shield of Abraham, was recalled from the inactive list at the beginning of the war and placed in command of a minesweeper flotilla. He was later appointed to a post in the Admiralty. He has been in the navy since his youth, having fought at Gallipoli and Akaba. Dr. Hannah Billig. prominent East End physician, received the George Medal for exceptional bravery while serving as a doctor n a shelter during a recent air aid. Other Jewish recipients of thej 'Jcorge Medal were Solomon Wolfson, East End Air Raid Pre-' autions district warden, who received the award for rescuing injured persons from a burning building while bombs were falling, and Special Constable Emanuel Graham, for aiding in rescue work in dangerous areas. Ankara (WNS)—Nazi authorities in Greece have ordered the immediate closing of all synagogues in Athens and Salonika, it was reported here. Present regulations in Greece forbid more than two Jews to walk together in the streets. More than two Jews constitutes an illegal gathering. The same order forbids Jews to have any more than 10 persons in their homes at any given time. NAZIS ANNOUNCE OUSTER OF JEWS F NAZI MESSERSCHMIDT SELLS FOR $25 AT TEL AVIV SALE Tel Aviv WNS)—Three Nazi Messerschmidts. brought down in air battles over Libya, evoked considerable interest at a public auction here. A Jewish iron dealer was the highest bidder, paying $25 for each of the three damaged planes. The iron dealer, who had planned to convert the planes into junk, netted an immediate proft instead by selling parts of the planes as souvenirs to the crowd which had collected.

New York (WNS)—The Paul Revere Sentinels. anti-Semitic followers of Father Coughlin. have disbanded as a result of financial difficulties, it was disclosed here. The anti-Semitic, super-patriots were ousted from the New York headquarters for non-payment of rent. Admitting that the Sentinels were no longer able to conduct their activities. James O'Kelley. chieftain of the Coughlinites. declared that the organization will be revived ""w-hen the country needs our services." Znrich (WNS)—Nazi authorities in occupied Luxemberg have notified Jewish leaders in that country that the entire Jewish population, with the exception of an estimated 300 aged and infirm Jews, must prepare to leave the country shortly, it was learned here. The task of making tiny Luxemberg "judenrein" will be relatively easy for the Nazis, since less than 1.000 of the pro-Jewish population of 4.500 remain, the rest having emigrated. Of the remaining Jews, about 350 have possibilities of emigrating to the United States, 300 are officially classified as aged and infirm, while the others have no emigration possibilities. (Dr. Robert Serebrenik, 39-year old Chief Rabbi of Luxemberg.. arrived in the United States several weeks ago aboard the Portuguese liner Mouzinho.—Editor s Note.) It was learned that the 300 aged and infirm Jews, now residing in special homes maintained by the Jewish community, will be permitted to remain in Luxemberg until they die but Nazi officials have indicated that they will be segregated in a special district. The main synagogue in Luxemberg has been closed by the Nazis "in the interests of public security." The synagogue was closed after a band of armed Nazis invaded the building during a recent Sabbath service and [beat a number of Jews. 37th and Call F. A.

Director FLORIDA REGIONAL OFFICE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE OF BNAI BRITH Thie column, a regular feature, aims to J cmiliarire the Jewish pubUc uith i-arious fhases o* the problems which concern ADL. As part of tts ser-.tce. readers are milled 10 address Questions on current Jeuish problems to the writer at 81" Sestold Building. Miami. Replies mil be made either in this column or in direct correspondence. Often individuals hear loose charges mods cbout the Jewish group or haze non-Jewish friends uho harbor misconceptions which they cannot clarify because of inadcauate information. Inquiries cf this kind are especially welcome. The name of the auestioner '.--ill be held in tie strictest confidence if he so desires. Until very recently whenever attacks were made upon the Jews in the halls of Congress, the Jewish representatives usually refrained from answering the anti-Semitic remarks directly. Instead, they adopted a policy of waiting until some non-Jewish colleague arose to refute the calumny. A New Policy This shah-shah policy now has been abandoned, as again and again the Jewish issue has been dragged into Congressional proceedings. A recent, though tragic example was the defense of the Jews by Congressman Edelstein of New York, who dropped dead after a stirring answer to Representative Rankin of Mississippi. Comparatively few people read the Congressional Record and the following incident, for obvious reasons, will not be recorded in the general presss. It is worthy of note, for men of courage do not come at a dime a dozen, and the quantity of Nazi sentiments inserted into the Congressional Record is reaching alarming proportions. Charging that the ugly issue of racial and religious bigotry has been injected in recent months into the proceedings of this body" Representative Leon Sacks. (D.) Philadelphia, called upon Congress a few days ago to "halt this perfidious practice." Although he did not refer by name to any of his colleaguess in j the House. Sacks made reference to recent statements attributed in the Congressonal Record to Representative Robert P. Lambertson. (R) Kansas, and Representative John E. Rankin (D) Mississippi. Sanction to Vicious Campaign Congressman Sacks, calling attention to the Nazi propaganda campaigns preceding its attack upon every' country it has invaded, declared: "I feel that the time is past when vague, unsupported charges and misleading innuendo can be permitted to emanate from this flor unchallenged. "In allowing such a practice the membership of this House not only stultifies itself, but, what is even worse and more important, we make ourselves the pawns and dupes of an alienfostered plot to create disunity, distrust and division in our own ranks. •But should the Congress of the United States allow the pages of its official Record to be thus sullied'' Should this Congress permit its floor to be used as a sounding board for such utterHOME MILK PRODUCERS ASSOCIATION OWNED AND OPERATED BY LOCAL DAIRYMEN r—Sealed in Cellophane for your protection PREFERRED BY THOUSANDS—MAY WE SERVE YOU?

Diversity—American Strength "The diversity of its people is a source of America's strength. We must guard against its misuse by others as a weapon to be turned against us. We are the product of many races and many creeds, sprung from forebears who came from distant lands to this haven of liberty to establish a community whose essential keynote is brotherhod. Under democracy and civil liberties, men and women of every religion, race and nationality in the United States have learned to live together in peace, order and mutual respect. "If this internal harmony is shattered, if this public order is upset—if this group is set against group—then America also would be headed for destruction."

A bloody pogrom was reported in Lwow when the Soviet forces were forced to abandon that part of Soviet Poland. Heavilyarmed Ukrainians and pro-Nazi Polish Endeks were turned loose on the Jewish quarter, destroying and firing Jewish shops and stores. Throughout the Nazi-occupied countries the press railed against the Jews, calling them Communist spies and agents. From Bulgaria it was reported that many Communist agents, "especially Jews," had been arrested and interned. In Nazi-occupied Poland Nazi Commissioner Hans Frank warned that "the Poles and Jews will pay dearly for any attempt to aid the enemy." Other reports from Poland stated that the Nazis had drafted many Jewish doctors from the Warsaw and Lublin doctors to treat the rapidly growing number of wounded German soldiers. Many Jewish homes near the battle zone have been taken over by the Nazis and converted into emergency hospitals. Nazi bombing planes dropped hundreds of thousands of antiJewish leaflets, including a special Ukrainian edition of the Jew baiting "Der Stuermer," on the Ukraine calling upon the Ukrainians to rise up and murder their "Jewish Communist masters." Special loudspeakers at the front urge the Soviet troops to hand over their Jewish officers and soldiers to the Nazis. The Nazis promise the non-Jewish Russian soldiers that they will be treated as comrades rather than war prisoners, providing they surrender their Jewish officers. B'nai BVith $P Not es By MILTON FRIEDMAN Death and taxes ARE certain— your tax assessor is as important as your doctor—maybe more so, today—see him now. Thank you, Elry Stone, for your guest column last week. From informed sources I am told the Daytona Labor Day B'nai B'rith state convention will really be a humdinger. I'll venture to say right now that as many Miamians who attended the Hollywood convention last year will trek to Daytona. We have a convention minded lodge, as if the rest of the district didn't know. Do you know that our Auxiliary hopes to raise around $60.<'0 from the sale of USO theatre tickets? I believe this will be the largest donation by any individual or group in Dade county towards this wonderful cause. Mrs. Jennie Rotfort, Mrs. Lou Heiman. Mrs. Ida Optner, Mrs. Milton Friedman, Mrs. Ettic Stone. Mrs. Meyer Schwartz. Mrs. S. B. Miller and the other ladies who worked so hard on this project are to be highly commended. You have to hand it to the ladies When they make up their minds to do things they sure are done. On Tuesday night, in spite of an unusual (?) rain a regular meeting of Sholem Lodge took place at the Woman's Club. Bro Treas. Walter Kovner, after reading membership applications moved that the applicants be "adopted." Bro. Abbott asked whether that meant we would have to support them. Bro. Al Berkeley in giving his report on the excellent dance recently held at the Wofford Hotel expressed his thanks to Mrs Emil Gould and Mrs. Harold Rand for their assistance in decorating the ballroom. Modesty kept him from mentioning the work done by his wife. The dance was very successful as all those who attended will attest. A. Z. A. chairman, Sam Silver, in reporting on the activities of his committee, stated that an advisors's meeting had been held recently and among other things, the advisors recommended a B. B. picnic to be held the fourth Sunday of this month. Quite a discussion was held whether the picnic should be exclusively lor B'nai B'rith and affiliated groups but it was finally decided that the Lodge would invite the two A. Z. A. chapters, the Auxiliary, the two Jr. Auxiliaries, and the Jewish service men at the Opi Locka Naval Air Base. Bro. Silver is chairman for the affair which will take the place of the social meeting for the month. Bro. Nathan Adelman was named to the committee. Present plans call for an all day affair at Greynolds Park with plenty of games for the men and women and competition between the Lodge and the A. Z. A. chapters. Those who attended the annual picnics formerly held in Ft. Lauderdale sponsored jointly by the Miami and W. Palm Beach Lodges will look forward to July 27th because they know how much fun is in store for them. We were honored, at this meeting, with the presence of Bro. Morris Uman, past president of Tampa Lodge, and Industrial Commissioner for that area. Bro. Uman is here on a combination business and pleasure trip being temporarily stationed here to take care of surplus work in this county. Also present was our first vice president of the State Federation, one of B'nai B'rith's old timers, our good friend from W. Palm Beach, Bro. Dave Feldman. Both brothers briefly addressed the body. They say that a sailor on a holiday goes rowing. It seems that the same story holds true for these Ben Briths. They had a vacation and showed up at another B'nai B'rith meeting. After all, why shouldn't they? Sholem Lodge is the most our was The loss active Lodge in the District and the work of our Order in and of itself attracts those who are interested in the cause of service. This past week one of members, Bro. I. Silver, killed in an auto accident. Lodge deeply mourns hi? and expresses to his family its great sympathy and sorrow. One of the hardest working committees in the state is headed by Bro. Lou Heiman. The student union committee report given by him at this meeting was cetainly comprehensive. Bro. Lou stated that through the work of his committee a permanent rabbi has been secured for the community of Tallahassee and that an additional rabbi will be recommended at the next state convention for a permanent post in the city of Gainesville. Congratulations to Bro. Heiman and his committee for a job being well done. A very interesting and enjoyable program was presented at the end of of the business meeting. Myron Waldman of tin? Fleischer Studios, put on a novel act if it can be called that. Members of the audience were asked to step forward to an immense easel and make a mark with crayon on the board. Then Mr. Waldman would draw some cartoon out of that mark. The results were quite humorous and Mr. Waldman showed great imagination. Following this feature, Nathan Aronovitz played some violin selections and Miss Ruth Shapiro, who accompanied, alos rendered a piano solo. Both were well received. Bro. Jos. Berman then conducted a quiz program pitting six husbands against six wives. The contest ended in a tie fortunately. Before closing for the week I want to urge our brothers to drop in on Bro. Meyer Schwartz at the Jackson Memorial Hospital. Bro. Schwartz broke his leg last week and can use some cheering up. We all hope he gets back on his feet again real soon. A. Z. A. The Miami Chapter of A. Z. A. held election of officers at their regular meeting Tuesday, July 1st. The following officers were elected: President, Murray Dacks: Vice-president, Murry Zohn: Secretary, Herbert Wilensky: Treasurer, Harold Solomon; Publicity chairman. Melvin Green; Religious chairman, Max Tendrich: Sergeant at arms, Jack Dayan; Assistant sergeant at arms. Jerome Karp. There will be a boat ride on July 29th, on the Seven Seas boat. This is going to be a joint affair with the Royal Palm Chapter. Until next week, au revoir. The purpose of the new tax laws is equitable, fair distribution of the tax burden. Your part in this program requires that you see your tax assessor today. • IT LIKES YOU

VICE PRESIDENT
OF BNAI B'RITH
DIES SUDDENLY
San Francisco, Cal.Judge I.
M. Golden, national vice-presi-
dent of B'nai B'rith, and one of
the outstanding Jewish leaders of
the Pacific Coast, died suddenly
;it his home here last week, at
the ago of 63.
Funeral services coincided with
special memorial services in the
Washington headpuarters o f
B'nai B'rith, where department
heads and staff members as-
sembled to hear the B'nai B'rith
ritual and eulogy of Judge Gol-
den delivered by Maurice Bisg-
yer, secretary of the Order. At
Mackinac Island. Michigan, Henry
Monsky, president of B'nai B'rith,
paid tribute to Judge- Golden
during the annual convention of
District No. 6.
A remarkable civic demonstra-
tion marked Judge Golden's fu-
neral. A continuous stream of
Catholics knelt in prayer beside
the casket.
Judge Golden, past president
of District No. 4, was also a past
president of the Pacific Coast
region of the Zionist Orgoniza-
tion of America, and its honorary
president until his death. He was
also a member ot the national
executive committee of the Z. O.
A. He was a delegate to the
World Zionist Congress two years
ago, and while there he conferred
with B'nai B'rith leaders from all
parts of Europe.
NATIONAL UNITY STRESSED
FOR SERVICE CAMPS IN U. S.
New York (WNS)A hand-
book on national unity entitled
"Calling All Americans" has been
issued by the Council Against
Intolerance in America for use
by group leaders in the Selective
Service Camps throughout the
United States, by service organi-
zations, and by recreation centers
in communities near the Camps.
Possessing evidence that divi-
sive propaganda is being used by
the Nazis to disrupt morals in the
Camps, the Council Against In-
tolerance holds that the ideals of
democracy must be reaffirmed
and that the basic principles of
mutual tolerance and equality
need to be emphasized among
the men who are in service. Pit-
ting race against race, creed
againts creed the Nazis have, in
many countries successfully dis-
rupted national unity. "Calling
All Americans" seeks to prevent
division within American ranks.
WOMETCO THEATRES WILL
LOWER. PRICE TO ENLISTEES
Mitchell Wolfson and Sidney
Meyer, operators of the Wometco
Theatres in Greater Miami, in
line with the policy of motion
picture theatres throughout the
United States in their effort to
assist the defense program, will
admit all service men in uniforms
to any of their theatres for an
admission charge of 20c. This is
in line with the aims of the
United Service Organization in
aiding service men to obtain the
best in recreatlpn and place it
within their means. This price
is also effective for any British
cadets in this area.
Jewish Soldiers^
On Inactive List
Stockholm (WNS)The Fin-
nish War Ministry had issued
instructions to its field com-
manders ordering all Jewish' of-
ficers and soldiers placed on the
inactive list, it was reported here.
General Mannherheim, leading
Finland's army against Soviet
Russia, has already withdrawn
all Jewish soldiers from the Rus-
sian-Finnish border.
Neutral sources here stated
that Nazi Germany had scored
another diplomatic victory since
the War Ministry order implied
that Jewish soldiers were not to
be trusted since they were all
Communist agents.
12,0(10 POLISH
JEWS ARRESTED
BY HUNGARIANS
500 VICTIMS ARE
MACHINE-GUNNED
IN OPEN FIELD
Istanbul (WNS) Another
bloody chapter was added to the
history of Nazi-dominated Ru-
mania when a Rumanian mili-
tary court ordered the execution
of 500 Jews who were rounded
up in the streets of Jassy and
accused of being Communist
agents.
Turkish journalists returning
here from blood-soaked Rumania,
the scene of at least three anti-
Jewish pogroms in recent years,
brought back tales of horror and
brutality which shocked even cir-
cles hitherto considered unfriend-
ly to Jews.
Stung at the inability of the
combined German and Rumanian
forces to make any headway in
their drive on Soviet-occupied
Bessarabia and northern Buko-
vina, the Rumanian government,
headed by the anti-Semitic Pre-
mier Ion Antonescu, unloosed a
drive against "Jewish Commun-
ists" in Rumanian cities near the
Soviet-Rumanian border.
Rumanian police swooped down
on the Jewish quarter of Jassy
and quickly loaded 500 bewild-
ered Jews into police wagons.
The Jews were sped to the near-
est military court and given a
"trial." The Jews, labelled by
London (WNS)The Hungar-
ian government ordered 22.000
Jews living in villages and towns
bordering on the Soviet fron-
tiers to abandon their homes and
possessions and move into the in-
terior of Hungary, it was reliably
reported here. Hungary's declar-
ation of war against Soviet Rus-
sia was accompanied by a vic-
ious anti-Jewish campaign which
has few precedents in modern
history, the report said.
At the same time, the Hungar-
ian government ordered the ar-
rest of 12.000 Polish Jews. The
Jews affected by the order were
born in that part of Poland
seized by Soviet Russia after the
Nazi army had invaded Poland
in 1939.
All Jews in Hungary between
the ages of 20 and 40 were noti-
fied to report for compulsory la-
ber and were sent to construct
roads and military fortifications
near the Soviet border.
The daily press is full of anti-
Jewish "atrocity stories" of the
lowest type. No distinction is
made between Jews and Com-
munists, the press and radio re-
ferring to all Jews as Commun-
ists. The agitation has become
so violent that Jews shun the
streets. Most of the synagogues
in Budapest are closed since Jew-
ish leaders fear mob attacks on
their congregations.
3,000 Russians
Jailed In France
Vichy (WNS)Close to 2,000
Jews were among the 3.000 per-
sons of Russian origin rounded
up by the police in Marseille and
held for questioning, it was
learned here. Among those ar-
rested were Zalman Schneour,
the poet, and his wife, who were
held for hours.
Meanwhile, the French news-
paper Paris-Midi, reported in a
dispatch from Beirut that 300
Jews were killed and 1.500 in-
jured by Arabs in an anti-Jew-
ish demonstration in Baghdad.
The newspaper declared that the
Jews themselves were responsi-
ble for the pogrom.

Washington (WNS)- B'nai
B'rith is launching a nation-wide
campaign among its 1.000 men s
and women's units to obtain Se-
fer Torahs for use during Jew-
ish religious services to be held
in the non-sectarian chapels be-
ing built at more than 500 army
posts and camps by the Federal
government, it was announced
here by Henry Monsky, P*ident
of B'nai B'rith and chairman of
its national defense committee.
All Torahs that are borrowed
will be returned after the emer-
gency has ended. Torahs that
are purchased by B'nai Bnth
units will be turned over to Jew-
ish religious institutions.
Berne (WNS)A new anti-
Jewish law, providing for the
expulsion of all Jews from Italy
except those exempt by "favor-
able discrimination." has been
drafted by the Italian govern-
ment and will be put into effect
following formal approval by
the Council of Ministers, it was
reported here.
Italian officials hailed the new
anti-Jewish decree as marking
the total liquidation of the Jew-
ish problem in Italy. While no
definite date was set for the ex-
pulsion of the Jewish population,
semi-official sources stated that
the Jews will be given from six
months to five years to wind up
their affairs and leave the coun-
The law assigns the Jewish
population to three categories. In
the first category are all Jews
whose families have at least one
member of pure "Aryan" stock.
These Jews wMl be "Aryanized
and will not be subject to the
anti-Jewish regulations.
Jews who can prove that they
performed "patriotic services
will be placed in the category
of "favorable discrimination" and
will be permitted to apply for
"Aryanization." The families of
Jews whose applications are ap-
proved will be given all the rights
of Italian citizens but will not

Geneva (WNS)Thousands of
Jews were reported killed and
thousands more injured as the
Nazi army instigated anti-Jew-
iSh pogroms and massacres in
the territories wrested from the
fiercely-resisting Soviet army.
While the two mighty armies
were locked in a bitter struggle
along a 1,200 mile front, the Nazi
propaganda machine attempted
to set Eastern Europe aflame
with hatred by spreading anti-
Jewish propaganda which cost
many thousands of Jews in Lith-
uania, Latvia. Hungary, Ru-
mania. Bulgaria and Poland their
lives.
The official Nazi radio report-
ed that hundreds of Jews were
slain in street fighting which
preceded the Nazi occupation of
Soviet Lithuania. Hundreds more
were arrested on charges of es-
pionage in behalf of the Soviet
government. They are now
awaiting trial before a Nazi mili-
tary court with a death sen-
tence hanging over their heads.
It was believed, however, that
Soviet Russia had evacuated
thousands of other Jews into the
Russian interior.

Lisbon (W N S)Arrangements
have been completed to have the
Portuguese liner Guinea make a
special stop at Casablanca t.i
rescue the 200 Jewish refugees
who were stranded there when
the Vichy government ordered
the French ships bringing the
refugees to America to return to
Casablanca, it was announced by
the Joint Distribution Committee
here.
All the refugees have visas to
the United States. A representa-
tive of the HIAS-ICA Emigration
Association has already left for
Casablanca from Marseille to ex-
pedite the departure of the refu-
gees. It was believed that the
refugees would be en route to
the United States before the end
of the month.
A special investigation will be
made also of the status of Jewish
internees there, many of whom
are reported to have visas for
Mexico and South America.
Meanwhile, the J. D. C. and the*
HIAS-ICA have begun to regis-
ter all refugees here who have
been accorded, but not yet is-
sued, visas to America and will
forward their cases to Washing-
ton. According to the new Amer-
ican immigration regulations, the
State Department in Washington
must pass on all applications for
visas before consuls in the field
will be allowed to issue visas.

Zurich (WNS)The Berlin ra-
dio adressing itself directly to
Nicholas Murray Butler, presi-
dent of Columbia University
charged the university which he
heads with harboring anti-Sem-
itism. The speaker over the Ber-
lin radio was Olio Koischwitz,
former professor at Hunter Col-
lege. He charged that "the per-
centage of Jewish staff members
has been kept as low as possible
at Columbia. The Horace Mann
School "does not accept any
Jewish children at all" and Lin-
coln school "has a definite quota."
"Now, it is perfectly upder-
standable that you have certain
restrictions," Koischwitz said.
"Why not? But why is it not ad-
mitted that these restrictions
exist? Why is it stated that the
principle of absolute equality and
equal opportunity for all is em-
phasized all the time if you don't
live up to it?"
London (WNS)General Ja-
cob Shmushkevitch, 43 year old
commanding officer of the Soviet
air fleet, now engaged in a death
struggle against Hitler's Luft-
waffe, is a Lithuanian Jew, the
son of a poor Jewish tailor, it
was disclosed here.
He enlisted in the Red Army
during the revolution and helped
defeat the White Guardist troops
under the command of General
Deniken. Following the revolu-
tion, he was sent to a military
school. Some years later he
turned to aviation and become
one of the country's most famed
pilots.
JEWISH LEADERS SPUR NEW
RECRUITS FOR PALESTINE
Jerusalem (WNS)Enlistment
in Palestine's armed forces was
spurred by the joint proclamation
issued by the Jewish Agency
and the Jewish National CouncH
calling upon all unmarried Jews
between the ages of twenty and
thirty to volunteer for active
service.
Jewish leaders stiessed that the
Palestine volunteer force and
settlement police have been en-
larged to include 25.000 men and
will be used for defense pur-
poses throughout the country.
Palestine was relatively quiet

NOTES
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
Y" Installation Hug* Success
To paraphrase a familiar say-
ing Everybody came, saw and
he Y conquered the audience
that attended our installation cer-
emonies last Sunday night at the
National Hotel. Over 500 peo-
ole attended the beautiful and
impressive ceremonies conducted
hv the Hon. Baron deHirsch Mey-
,., Never before in the history
of this institution have so many
people attended an installation
ceremony.
Festivities began with an ad-
dress of welcome by Maurice
Grossman, who then turned over
the affair to Mr. Meyer. Mr.
Meyer then gave an address in
which he ably outlined the his-
tory of the Y and appealed to
those present to cooperate and
join with us. The program then
continued with an address by H.
Ernest Overstrcet. Miami harbor
master Mr. Meyer then pro-
ceeded with the installation cer-
emonies which were very im-
pressive Last week we informed
you through these columns the

Beckman and Miss Cohen re-
sponded and thanked the audi-
ence for their generosity.
Rabbi Abraham Kellner deliv-
ered the benediction.
At the conclusion of the instal-
lation ceremonies, the rain came
down but that did not prevent
over 300 people from watching a
beautiful water show under the
direction of Louis Kraft. Dancing

all.

installation was: Leo Robinson,
chairman; Harry Schwartz, San1.

Washington (WNS)The new
government requiring the State
Department to pass on all appli-
cations for visas before consuls
in the field may issue the visas
will not hamper the influx of
refugee immigration to the Unit-
ed States, according to semi-of-
ficial sources here.
These sources claimed that ref-
ugee immigration will remain on
the same level as 1940 when be-
tween 2,000 and 3.000 refugees
entered the country each month.
The State Department will issue
visas, it was said, to such per-
sons as can be admitted without
endangering the public safety.
It was disclosed that the State
Department has agreed to give
further consideration to a large
number of refugees affected by a
ruling made public last month
barring U. S. vsias to refugees
with relatives in the totalitarian
countries. It was indicated that
many of the affected refugees
will receive consideration as soon
as their relatives have left Nazi-
controlled territory.
It was announced also that
after July 15. the date set for
the closing of American consu-
lates in German and Italian ter-
ritory, refugees may apply for
visas at any American consulate
in neutral countries to which
they can get.
To clear up the confusion re-
sulting from the new immigra-
tion regulations the HIAS (He-
brew Immigration Aid Society)
made public the following state-
ment: "If the State Department
is satisfied that the applicant's
admission is desirable, that he
will not become a public charge,
that he is properly sponsored and
that he can obtain the necessary
exit and transit visas and trans-
portation, he will be admitted.
"The President's Advisory
Committee on Political Refugees
is to act as liaison agency, with
a view to protecting the country
against those who might be in-
duced to act as spies because of
Nazi threats against their close
relatives remaining behind."

stein and family left for a

New York (WNS)The sum of
$69 000, representing contribu-
tions from Jews in various sec-
tions of the country, was pre-
sented to the British War Relief
Society by the Jewish Section
of the Interfaith Committee for
Aid to the Democracies, at a din-
ner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel,
given in honor of Dr. Stephen S.
Wise, president of the American
Jewish Congress. The dinner
marked the dedication of a chil:
dren's nursing home to be estab-
lished somewhere in England, on
a non-sectarian basis, in the name
of Dr. Wise.
The $69,000 represents an over-
subscription of the money re-
auired to establish such a nursing
me which costs $25,000. The
surplus will be used to estab-
1 i s h additional non-sectarian
nursing homes far children suf-
fering from the effects of the war

VOLUME 14 NUMBER 28
CLASS CITIZENSHIP IN U. S.
The noted columnist Westbrook Pegler came out last week
with a rather alarming and un-American suggestion. He urges
that: 1. Naturalization of aliens shoujd be introduced in the U. S.
United States. 2. A distinction should be introduced in the U. S.
A between citizens who are American-born and those natural-
ized. 3. Naturalized citizens should be barred from State and
Municipal positions. He admits that his suggestions amount to
the introduction of class A and class B" citizenship and that
this is rather against the American Constitution Dut points out
that the Constitution can be amended and that many Americans
will favor such an amendment.
Pegler justifies his suggestions with the plea that what
America needs now is more protection against aliens who,
though enjoying the privilege of living in the U. S. A. still enter-
tain sympathies for their native lands. Pegler fails, however,
to see'that true as it may be that members of the Nazi-Bund in
America are more interested in Hitler than in the United States,
W that members of the Communist party in America are more
interested in Stalin than in the democratic principles lor which
America stands a very large proportion of them are not at all
aliens but American-born. Pegler himself recently carried in
one of his columns a long list of names to prove that among the
leading communists in this country are plenty of Americans
non-Jews and non-immigrants. This is true to even a greater
extent of the Nazi-Bund, of the Silver Shirts, of the McWilliamses
cad others who ballyhoo themselves as 100 percent Ameri-
cans but are openly serving the interests of Hitler.
Perhaps the best argument against Pegler's suggestion is
the tact that on the week Pegler urged the introduction of "class
B" citizenship for naturalized Americans, the very same week,
the FBI arrested a number of dangerous Nazi spies in this coun-
try some of whom were native-born, the kind of Americans
whom Pegler would not oust from Government positions. On the
Other hand who in the United States does not know that the
Daturaliaed Americans are more appreciative of their American
citizenship than some who acquired this citizenship by birth.
lust because they have been born in Europe they can ap-
preciate what this country stands for better than even those
who were bom here. Mr. Pegler's new law, for example,
would degrade to second class citizens such men as Knudson,
who is in charge of gearing our defense production and his
"lirf nl Sidney Hillman.
'.: sc happened that a few days before Pegler's recommenda-
tiODi were published. Supreme Court Justice William Douglas
broadcasting from San Francisco, touched on the very same
subject or. which Pegler dwelt in two lengthy columnson the
subject c: citizenship and morale. Here is what the Supreme
Court justice sa-.i
There must r.c: grew up in this country any second or fourth
ekm cimer.sr.ip There is enly one class of citizenship in this
ccur.ry. There is no room for any inferior grade. Where one
r.c* been allowed the result has been the downward spiral
c: disunity Then hate end intolerance has been incorporated."
We reccrr..er.d kg Peeler to get acquainted with the full
tert c: the Supreme Court Justice s address. Would Pegler have
came out witt :..= suggestions bad he fast consulted the FBI as

the prosecutor as Communist sa-
boteurs who had given vital
military secrets to the Soviet
government and had sniped at
Nazi and Rumanian soldiers from
the rear, were not permitted to
Cfldl witnesses or to defend them-
selves
Most of the Jews seized in the
raid were not even identified
before the court which handed
down a mass indictment. After
hearing evidence" gathered by
the police, the military tribunal
sentenced the 500 Jews to death
by a firing squad.
The Jews were so stunned by
the raid and the subsequent
wholesale "trial" that they re-
mained silent throughout the
brief proceeding. When sen-
tence was announced, however, a
number of Jews rose to their feet
and warned the court that Ru-
mania would soon pay for the
killing of innocent men for the
ruthless negation of all human
decencies.
The victims were then taken
to the outskirts of Jassy and
lined up before firing squads
with machine guns. The major-
ity of the Jews were young, many
not even 20 years old. Their
last request for permission to see
their families were rejected.
Following the mass execution,
a delegation of Jewish leaders
from Jassy approaoSed the gov-
ernment for permission to bury
the victims in Jewish cemeteries.
Government authorities refused
the request and ordered the
wives and immediate families of
the murdered Jews to dig a huge
pit at the scene of the executions.
Pitiful scenes were enacted at
the field when the grief-stricken
families were forced to watch
soldiers throw the bullet-riddled
bodies into the pit.
The entire Rumanian Jewish
population is in a state of panic
as a result of the new govern-
ment anti-Jewish drive. Buchar-
est has announced that all Jews
convicted of aiding or hiding
Communist agents would be ex-
ecuted together with their fami-
lies.
An official statement said:
"The Soviets employ every
means cf sabotage, disorder and
aggression behind the front. They
have parachutists, spies, terror-
ists and other agents who con-
tact their local agents and the
Jewish Communist population
for the purpose of organizing acts
of aggression."
At the same time the Ruman-
ian government ordered thou-
sands of Jews living in cities and
villages near the Russian-Ru-
ta war zone to leave their
bomes The order was made nec-
essary, a government spokesman
explained, because the Jews were

THAT JEWISH ARMY
We wonder where Broadway columnist Danton Walker got
this story, which he published in his column last week ... "A
story is due to break soon," he announced, "about an under-
ground Jewish army operating in Palestine, numbering about
10,000 fully equipped men, with a reserve of 15,000 others, ready
to defend their homeland when the time comes Their arms,
the story goes, were bought from the Arabs" The story, of
course, is pure (if not kosher ) balonev The official Zionist
leadership still contends that nothing can be done about a
Jewish army before the British government permits its formation
. The New Zionist Organization, on the other hand, believes
that Great Britain's hand must be forced by Jewish action .
So before long the New Zionist Organization is going to start a
registration campaign in this country asking Jewish youths
whether they would volunteer in a Jewish army providing their
draft obligations and U. S. government regulations permit .
The Revisionist leaders think that if a sufficient number of Jews
signify their intention of joining up, British official circles will
move faster on the whole proposition .
WAR ECHOES
Should Hitler succeed in his blitzkrieg against Russia, he
will sponsor the most stupendous pogroms in Jewish history .
This in line with his promise to "save" Russia by exterminating
her "Jewish Communists" Incidentally, don't miss Rabbi
Abba Hillel Silver's chapter about Jewish life in the Soviet
Union, in his book "The World Crisis and Jewish Survival" .
It is courageous, sincere appraisal which many of the rabid
Zionist anti-Sovietists will find far from pleasing We don't, as
a rule, have much confidence in Mr. Wythe Williams' predic-
tions or "private information" We hope, however, that he
was right the other day when he announced that he knows ihat
Julius Streicher, anti-Semitic Number One of Naziland, has
been executed And when he told us that Mr. Hitler is a vir-
tual prisoner in the hands of the German army we fervently
murmured: "Allewei" Members of the Nazi embassy staff at
Washington are taking bets that the Red army will have ceased
to be a military factor by July 27th They've found few
American military experts ready to risk their money by taking
up such a wager, but it is said that several Soviet embassy staff
members have, through stooges, placed quite a bit of money
on the proposition that July 27th will see the Russo-German war
in a still undecided state Right here, incidentally, we want
to remark that we don't like Danton Walker's remark about the
"blitzkrieg" between Russia and Germany ... It sounds like
a crack that might have originated in Bundist circles .
SCREEN SHADOWS
The best line on Hitler's attack on Russia comes from
Hollywood ... It seems that the Hollywood generals were as
amazed as all the other military experts at the sudden Nazi on-
slaught on Adalf's former pact partner ... But James K. Mc
Guiness, who apparently burned many a dram of midnight
oil over "Mem Kampf," has explained it all to the gentlemen of
the studios There's nothing puzzling about the whole busi-
ness, he claims Hitler has simply gone back to shooting his
fust script Flash: Charlie Chaplin is very seriously consider-
ing the making of a new Hitler film, to deal with the story of
Hitler as a prisoner on St. Helena ... He is said to have told
some of his intimates that he thinks he'd better start now. lest
he miss the bus (referring to the fact that it takes him two years
to make a picture) ... So that you won't be disappointed, we'll
tell you right now that the British film "Prime Minister." which
will be coming to this country in the fall, is not about Winston
Churchill ... Its hero is Disraeli Among the recent arrivals
from Europe is a gentleman by the name of Rabinowitz, who,
until a year ago was undisputedly the outstanding producer of
French films Before that he had been a topnotch producer of
German Ufa films When Hitler took over Germany, Dr.
Goebbels called on Mr. Rabinowitz with an offer to make him
an 'honorary Aryan" if he would continue with Ufa and produce
Nazi propaganda films Rabinowitz declined without thanks,
and moved to France Last year, when Otto Abetz became
Hitler's gauleiter in France, the same offer was again extended
to Mr. Rabinowitz His reply was to leave for America at
the earliest possible moment \ And now Hollywood is hot on
his trail ,
MUSIC DEPARTMENT
Fritz Kreisler, the violin virtuoso, has practically recovered
from his serious accident of a couple of months ago But
iS36 u the renownea pianist, is critically ill Violinist
Mischa Elman was buring up the other nightand it wasn't
due to the torrid spell, either ... He was to play with the WPA
symphony orchestra on a special music and national defense
broadcast, and when he and his fiddle arrived in the NBC
building the elevator operator directed him to the freight ele-
vator, the building's rule being that musicians carrying instru-
ments aren't permitted to ride in the passenger elevators .
Getting red in the face. Mr. Elman shouted: "Do you know who
I am?" Looking him up and down, the up-and-downer coldly
retorted: "I don't care if you're Jack Benny himselfyou sail
can I ride in this car" ... The late Ignace Paderewski did not
like Jews very much, though he wasn't really a convinced anti-
Semite ... To a Jewish reporter who once interviewed him on
the Jewish question, he said: "I love the Jews They are
wonderful people, and many of them are great artists ... I'd
like to see them happy -but not in Poland" .

Of Soviet Russia are volutarily
enlisting in the Soviet armies in
unusually great numbers, spurred
by the strong desire to defeat
Hitlerism. The number of stu-
dents enlisting is especially large.
The enthusiasm shown by the
Russian Jews is so outstanding
as to provoke general comment.
The Soviet radio has branded
as completely false the story
which appeared in the Swedish
press to the effect that Lembcrg
Jews enthusiastically received
the invading Nazi army.

The Slovak government, al-
ways alert to show the identity
of its aims with the Nazis with
regard to Jews, in an official
statement announced the arrest

CIVIL LIBERTIES ARE NOT
CURBED REPORT STATES
New York (WNS)While ac-
knowledging that "growing in-
tolerance of minorities out of
step with the national effort" is
in evidence, the American Civil
Liberties Union declared in its
21st annual report that the de-
fense program and the unlimited
national emergency have to date
resulted in "remarkable few cas-
ualties" in the field of civil
liberties.
Pointing out that "no Federal
, prosecutions for opinion have
j been undertaken despite the po-
wer in law to do so." the Civil
Liberties Union reported that a
number of decisions handed down
by the United States Supreme
! Court had strengthened civil
rights at many places.
The report declared that in
more than half of the State Leg-
islatures, bills designed to curb
the political rights of the Com-
munist party or of the German-
American Bund had not been
passed "largely on the persua-
sive argument that it is sounder
policy to keep in the open, rather
than to drive underground, move-
ments with foreign loyalties."

TXXPAYERS HAVE
HEIR PROBLEM
FRONT STEPS
Florida's taxpayerspast pre-
sent and prospectiveat last have
their problem back on their own
fron: door steps, right at home
and :n their own hands, according
to State Comptroller J. M Lee,
whc after spending ten days
working out instructions for of-
ficial in connection with the new
tax laws, took time out to prepare
for readers of The Jewish Flor-
idiar. a few words for the benefit
of the men and women who are
on the paying end of these new
statutes.
With the bugaboo of state tax-
ation eliminated from the pro-
pertv tax structure "folks back
home" can pay as much or as
little as they want, is the way
Con-.rtrnller Lee sees it. The
H iti position now is solely that
of umpireto insure, by strict
supervision under the provisions
of th new statutes, that the bur-
den ...sired by the folks back
hon.t is fairly distributed among
those same folks, who after de-
ciding what they want to pay are
:.,. with the job of paying it.
1 re are two important firsts
right now according to the
Comptroller. They are: See your
tax assessor right away to make
iui you get your proper excmp-
nd that he doesn't figure
r g on valuesbecause he'll
havi > figure by himself under
lhes< new laws if you dont func-
tii: N'o more can you "ride'"
with ." getting on the tax books.
That- Mr. Taxpayer's job, the
0 .oiler says, not the editor's.
| nrr tax collector's nor the
tax assessor's. "We've got ways
of finding out who owns personal
property, stock and bonds, and
we're going to get the data from
corporation returns to the secre-
tary of state, from income tax
returns to Uncle Sam and from
wherever we can find it. Tax-
payers can save themselves
trouble and grief and the state
money by seeing the county as-
sessor right now" he says.
The other "first' for the man
who will have to pay 1941 taxes
is to see his county commissioners
and school board members about
the budget, says the Comptroller.
Whether taxes go up or down
depends entirely on those gentle-
men and how effectively Mr.
Taxpayer talks to them. They
fix the millage. And all the as-
sessor does is find the value.
The new law says the valuation
must be increasedmaybe four
times, maybe three timesin
your county. It also says the
millage shall come downbut
that rests in the laps of the tax-
payers themselves and the mem-
bers of th6se two boards. Tax-
payers should see them right
now while budgets are being pre-
pared. Next month will be too
late.
Then the taxpayer should see
his tax collector before the 15th
or his name may show up in
the paper as delinquent, and more
costs added. Names of those de-
linquent for 1940 personal and in-
tangible taxes must be published
in the newspaper July 15th. If
you haven't paid you can save
this embarassment and some
extra costs too. It's got to be
paid this yearthere's no
"misses" going to be allowed your
tax collector, according to the
Comptroller.
Mr. Taxpayer should be tax-
conscious by the time he does
| these thingsand that should
lead him to a policy of partici-
pating in the business of his
| county. Meetings of commission-

London ( W N S )Lieutenant
Commander M. M. Bright, high-
est ranking Jewish officer in the
British Navy, has been awarded
the Distinguished Service Cross
for "wholehearted devotion to
duty," it was announced here.
The Jewish naval officer, for-
mer president of a lodge of the
Order Achei Brith Shield of
Abraham, was recalled from the
inactive list at the beginning
of the war and placed in com-
mand of a minesweeper flotilla.
He was later appointed to a post
in the Admiralty. He has been
in the navy since his youth,
having fought at Gallipoli and
Akaba.
Dr. Hannah Billig. prominent
East End physician, received the
George Medal for exceptional
bravery while serving as a doctor
n a shelter during a recent air
aid.
Other Jewish recipients of thej
'Jcorge Medal were Solomon
Wolfson, East End Air Raid Pre-'
autions district warden, who re-
ceived the award for rescuing in-
jured persons from a burning
building while bombs were fall-
ing, and Special Constable Eman-
uel Graham, for aiding in rescue
work in dangerous areas.
Ankara (WNS)Nazi author-
ities in Greece have ordered the
immediate closing of all syna-
gogues in Athens and Salonika, it
was reported here. Present re-
gulations in Greece forbid more
than two Jews to walk together
in the streets. More than two
Jews constitutes an illegal gath-
ering. The same order forbids
Jews to have any more than 10
persons in their homes at any
given time.

considerable interest at a public
auction here. A Jewish iron
dealer was the highest bidder,
paying $25 for each of the three
damaged planes. The iron

an immediate proft instead by
selling parts of the planes as
souvenirs to the crowd which
had collected.

Znrich (WNS)Nazi authori-

notified Jewish leaders in that
country that the entire Jewish
population, with the exception
of an estimated 300 aged and in-
firm Jews, must prepare to leave
the country shortly, it was
learned here.
The task of making tiny Lux-
emberg "judenrein" will be re-
latively easy for the Nazis, since
less than 1.000 of the pro-Jewish
population of 4.500 remain, the
rest having emigrated. Of the
remaining Jews, about 350 have
possibilities of emigrating to the
United States, 300 are officially
classified as aged and infirm,
while the others have no emigra-
tion possibilities.
(Dr. Robert Serebrenik, 39-year
old Chief Rabbi of Luxemberg..
arrived in the United States sev-
eral weeks ago aboard the Por-
tuguese liner Mouzinho.Editor s

It was learned that the 300
aged and infirm Jews, now re-
siding in special homes main-
tained by the Jewish community,
will be permitted to remain in
Luxemberg until they die but
Nazi officials have indicated that
they will be segregated in a
special district.
The main synagogue in Lux-
emberg has been closed by the
Nazis "in the interests of public
security." The synagogue was
closed after a band of armed
Nazis invaded the building dur-
ing a recent Sabbath service and
[beat a number of Jews.

FRIDAY. JULY 11, 1941
The ADL News Service
by
WILLIAM I. BOXERMAN. Director
FLORIDA REGIONAL OFFICE
ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE
OF BNAI BRITH
Thie column, a regular feature, aims to
Jcmiliarire the Jewish pubUc uith i-arious
fhases o* the problems which concern
ADL. As part of tts ser-.tce. readers are
milled 10 address Questions on current
Jeuish problems to the writer at 81" Ses-
told Building. Miami. Replies mil be made
either in this column or in direct corres-
pondence. Often individuals hear loose
charges mods cbout the Jewish group or
haze non-Jewish friends uho harbor mis-
conceptions which they cannot clarify be-
cause of inadcauate information. Inquir-
ies cf this kind are especially welcome.
The name of the auestioner '.--ill be held in
tie strictest confidence if he so desires.
Until very recently whenever
attacks were made upon the Jews
in the halls of Congress, the
Jewish representatives usually
refrained from answering the
anti-Semitic remarks directly.
Instead, they adopted a policy of
waiting until some non-Jewish
colleague arose to refute the
calumny.
A New Policy
This shah-shah policy now has
been abandoned, as again and
again the Jewish issue has been
dragged into Congressional pro-
ceedings. A recent, though tragic
example was the defense of the
Jews by Congressman Edelstein
of New York, who dropped dead
after a stirring answer to Rep-
resentative Rankin of Mississippi.
Comparatively few people read
the Congressional Record and the
following incident, for obvious
reasons, will not be recorded in
the general presss. It is worthy
of note, for men of courage do
not come at a dime a dozen, and
the quantity of Nazi sentiments
inserted into the Congressional
Record is reaching alarming pro-
portions.
Charging that the ugly issue
of racial and religious bigotry
has been injected in recent
months into the proceedings of
this body" Representative Leon
Sacks. (D.) Philadelphia, called
upon Congress a few days ago to
"halt this perfidious practice."
Although he did not refer by
name to any of his colleaguess in
j the House. Sacks made reference
to recent statements attributed
in the Congressonal Record to
Representative Robert P. Lam-
bertson. (R) Kansas, and Repre-
sentative John E. Rankin (D)
Mississippi.
Sanction to Vicious Campaign
Congressman Sacks, calling at-
tention to the Nazi propaganda
campaigns preceding its attack
upon every' country it has invad-
ed, declared:
"I feel that the time is past
when vague, unsupported charges
and misleading innuendo can be
permitted to emanate from this
flor unchallenged.
"In allowing such a practice
the membership of this House
not only stultifies itself, but,
what is even worse and more im-
portant, we make ourselves the
pawns and dupes of an alien-
fostered plot to create disunity,
distrust and division in our own
ranks.
But should the Congress of
the United States allow the pages
of its official Record to be thus
sullied'' Should this Congress
permit its floor to be used as a
sounding board for such utter-

Congressman under the cloak of
immunity from civil action en-
joyed by reason of membership
in this body, further this Commu-
Nazi scheme of division by him-
self joining in attack upon a mi-

"The diversity of its people is

turned against us. We are the
product of many races and many
creeds, sprung from forebears
who came from distant lands to
this haven of liberty to establish
a community whose essential
keynote is brotherhod. Under
democracy and civil liberties,
men and women of every relig-
ion, race and nationality in the
United States have learned to
live together in peace, order and
mutual respect.

shattered, if this public order is
upsetif this group is set
against groupthen America al-
so would be headed for destruc-
tion."

THOUSANDS ARE
KILLED DURING
(CONTINUED FROM PAQc 1)
Nazi occupation of Latvia. The
entry of the Nazi forces was the
signal for anti-Jewish pogroms
and looting against the Jews who
were not able to flee the coun-
try before it fell into Nazi con-
trol.
A bloody pogrom was reported
in Lwow when the Soviet forces
were forced to abandon that part
of Soviet Poland. Heavily-
armed Ukrainians and pro-Nazi
Polish Endeks were turned loose
on the Jewish quarter, destroy-
ing and firing Jewish shops and
stores.
Throughout the Nazi-occupied
countries the press railed against
the Jews, calling them Commun-
ist spies and agents. From Bul-
garia it was reported that many
Communist agents, "especially
Jews," had been arrested and in-
terned. In Nazi-occupied Poland
Nazi Commissioner Hans Frank
warned that "the Poles and Jews
will pay dearly for any attempt
to aid the enemy."
Other reports from Poland
stated that the Nazis had drafted
many Jewish doctors from the
Warsaw and Lublin doctors to
treat the rapidly growing num-
ber of wounded German soldiers.
Many Jewish homes near the
battle zone have been taken over
by the Nazis and converted into
emergency hospitals.
Nazi bombing planes dropped
hundreds of thousands of anti-
Jewish leaflets, including a spe-
cial Ukrainian edition of the Jew
baiting "Der Stuermer," on the
Ukraine calling upon the Ukrain-
ians to rise up and murder their
"Jewish Communist masters."
Special loudspeakers at the
front urge the Soviet troops to
hand over their Jewish officers
and soldiers to the Nazis. The
Nazis promise the non-Jewish
Russian soldiers that they will
be treated as comrades rather
than war prisoners, providing
they surrender their Jewish of-
ficers.

Thank you, Elry Stone, for
your guest column last week.
From informed sources I am
told the Daytona Labor Day
B'nai B'rith state convention will
really be a humdinger. I'll ven-
ture to say right now that as
many Miamians who attended the
Hollywood convention last year
will trek to Daytona. We have
a convention minded lodge, as if
the rest of the district didn't
know.
Do you know that our Auxil-
iary hopes to raise around $60.<'0
from the sale of USO theatre
tickets? I believe this will be
the largest donation by any in-
dividual or group in Dade county
towards this wonderful cause.
Mrs. Jennie Rotfort, Mrs. Lou
Heiman. Mrs. Ida Optner, Mrs.
Milton Friedman, Mrs. Ettic
Stone. Mrs. Meyer Schwartz. Mrs.
S. B. Miller and the other ladies
who worked so hard on this pro-
ject are to be highly commended.

When they make up their minds
to do things they sure are done.
On Tuesday night, in spite of
an unusual (?) rain a regular
meeting of Sholem Lodge took
place at the Woman's Club. Bro
Treas. Walter Kovner, after read-
ing membership applications
moved that the applicants be
"adopted." Bro. Abbott asked
whether that meant we would
have to support them.
Bro. Al Berkeley in giving his
report on the excellent dance re-
cently held at the Wofford Hotel
expressed his thanks to Mrs
Emil Gould and Mrs. Harold
Rand for their assistance in dec-
orating the ballroom. Modesty
kept him from mentioning the
work done by his wife. The dance
was very successful as all those
who attended will attest.
A. Z. A. chairman, Sam Silver,
in reporting on the activities of
his committee, stated that an
advisors's meeting had been held
recently and among other things,
the advisors recommended a B.
B. picnic to be held the fourth
Sunday of this month. Quite a
discussion was held whether the
picnic should be exclusively lor
B'nai B'rith and affiliated groups
but it was finally decided that
the Lodge would invite the two
A. Z. A. chapters, the Auxiliary,
the two Jr. Auxiliaries, and the
Jewish service men at the Opi
Locka Naval Air Base. Bro. Sil-
ver is chairman for the affair
which will take the place of the
social meeting for the month.
Bro. Nathan Adelman was named
to the committee. Present plans
call for an all day affair at
Greynolds Park with plenty of
games for the men and women
and competition between the
Lodge and the A. Z. A. chapters.
Those who attended the annual
picnics formerly held in Ft. Lau-
derdale sponsored jointly by the
Miami and W. Palm Beach
Lodges will look forward to July
27th because they know how
much fun is in store for them.
We were honored, at this
meeting, with the presence of
Bro. Morris Uman, past president
of Tampa Lodge, and Industrial
Commissioner for that area. Bro.
Uman is here on a combination
business and pleasure trip being
temporarily stationed here to
take care of surplus work in this
county. Also present was our
first vice president of the State
Federation, one of B'nai B'rith's
old timers, our good friend from
W. Palm Beach, Bro. Dave Feld-
man. Both brothers briefly ad-
dressed the body. They say that
a sailor on a holiday goes row-
ing. It seems that the same story
holds true for these Ben Briths.
They had a vacation and showed
up at another B'nai B'rith meet-
ing. After all, why shouldn't
they? Sholem Lodge is the most

The

active Lodge in the District and
the work of our Order in and of
itself attracts those who are in-
terested in the cause of ser-
vice.
This past week one of
members, Bro. I. Silver,
killed in an auto accident.
Lodge deeply mourns hi?
and expresses to his family its
great sympathy and sorrow.
One of the hardest working
committees in the state is headed
by Bro. Lou Heiman. The stu-
dent union committee report giv-
en by him at this meeting was
cetainly comprehensive. Bro. Lou
stated that through the work of
his committee a permanent rabbi
has been secured for the com-
munity of Tallahassee and that
an additional rabbi will be rec-
ommended at the next state con-
vention for a permanent post in
the city of Gainesville. Congrat-
ulations to Bro. Heiman and his
committee for a job being well
done.
A very interesting and enjoy-
able program was presented at
the end of of the business meet-
ing. Myron Waldman of tin?
Fleischer Studios, put on a novel
act if it can be called that. Mem-
bers of the audience were asked
to step forward to an immense
easel and make a mark with
crayon on the board. Then Mr.
Waldman would draw some car-
toon out of that mark. The re-
sults were quite humorous and
Mr. Waldman showed great im-
agination. Following this feat-
ure, Nathan Aronovitz played
some violin selections and Miss
Ruth Shapiro, who accompanied,
alos rendered a piano solo. Both
were well received. Bro. Jos.
Berman then conducted a quiz
program pitting six husbands
against six wives. The contest
ended in a tie fortunately.
Before closing for the week I
want to urge our brothers to drop
in on Bro. Meyer Schwartz at the
Jackson Memorial Hospital. Bro.
Schwartz broke his leg last week
and can use some cheering up.
We all hope he gets back on his
feet again real soon.
A. Z. A.
The Miami Chapter of A. Z. A.
held election of officers at their
regular meeting Tuesday, July
1st. The following officers were
elected: President, Murray Dacks:
Vice-president, Murry Zohn: Sec-
retary, Herbert Wilensky: Trea-
surer, Harold Solomon; Publi-
city chairman. Melvin Green; Re-
ligious chairman, Max Tendrich:
Sergeant at arms, Jack Dayan;
Assistant sergeant at arms. Jer-
ome Karp.
There will be a boat ride on
July 29th, on the Seven Seas
boat. This is going to be a joint
affair with the Royal Palm
Chapter.
Until next week, au revoir.

laws is equitable, fair distribu-
