Rosenberg, 5 REFUGEES ON NAVEMAR DIED TO U. S. Bermuda (WNS)—The Spanish freighter Navemar, which normally has accomodations for about 18 passengers, left for Cuba, with more than 1,100 European refugees crammed aboard, after making its first call here. From Cuba to Navemar, which was described as a "floating concentration camp" by Joint Distribution Committee officials in Lisbon, will head for the United States. Four of the ship's passengers died en route to Bermuda while a fifth died after being hospitalized here. The Navemar left behind when it sailed for Cuba six others, including an expectant mother, who were too ill to continue the voyage. Before sailing the refugees sent a message of thanks to the people of Bermuda for the "first experience of real humanity" encountered on the long trip from Lisbon. Local health officials declared that it was remarkable that no epidemic had broken out among the ship's passengers. Many of the refugees confirmed reports received here earlier that they had paid anywhere from $400 to $1,500 for passage. The refugees slept in tiers in the holds of the ship. Upon their arrival here, the refugees sent out for fresh fruit and vegetables. MORRIS KLASS Newly elected Executive Director of Greater Miami Jewish Federation. 1NTINUED ON PAGE 6) LOAD MUNITIONS UN.

While p troops tried to check the the Jews escaped from [Tillage and made their way Russian held territory. NAZIS ROLE 75 PER CENT OF THE WORLD'S JEWS Zurich (WNS)—With the Nazi invasion of the Russian Ukraine. Fuehrer Hitler now rules more than 10.000.000 Jews, or about 75 per cent of the Jews in the world, the Nazi newspaper "Grenzbote" reported with obvious satisfaction, predicting that the "total world solution" of the Jewish problem is imminent. Pointing out that virtually every great Jewish community in the world, with the exception !of Great Britain and the United States, has fallen in Nazi hands, the Nazi newspaper stated that j "Jewish economic and political power throughout the world" has been smashed. "Grenzbote" assured its readers that before the end of the war the Jewish communities of Britain and America would share the fate of the Jews of Poland, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Holland, France, Rumania, Hungary and White Russia. POLISH BANS EJECTSENDEK London (WNS)—Poland's exiled Government has flung back the proffered support of the antiSemitic Endeks in a dramatic showdown during which Premiere Wladislas Sikorski threw Endek Leader Tadeusz Bielicki out of his room. Prof. Bielecki. head of the troublesome Endek minority among the Poles in exile, had approached Premier Sikorski with a memorandum offering support of the Government in return for appointment of Bielicki as Vice-Premier and acceptance of an Endek progrom which included retention of ghettos for Jews in post-war Poland. The conference became more and more heated as Bielecki outlined his extreme demands until the indignant Premier brusquely ended the meeting and asked the Endek leader to leave the room. Refusal of the exiled Government to make concessions to the Endeks was taken to indicate that the Cabinet intended to abide by its oft-repeated pledge of adherence to democracy and equality of all citizens in a reconstructed Poland. The Government has enunciated a policy of "equal duties, equal rights" for the Jews. Since the removal of the Polish Government to London at the end of 1939, the Endek Party (abbreviation for National Democrats,) have carried on persistent opposition to the Government's policy and agitation for the Jews. The Endek paper, Jestem Poliakem (I Am A Pole,) proved to be a thorn in the side of the Government. Meanwhile, the Polish Government is continuing its efforts to obtain release of imprisoned Polish citizens in Soviet Russia, many of whom are Jews. Henryk Ehrlich and Victor Alter, leaders of the Bund (Polish Jewish Socialist Party,) are among the latest to be freed from a Moscow prison. Greater Miami Federation Has New Ex ecu tive Director j DAY OF PRAYER AT SYNAGOGUE London (WNS)—London Jews will participate in the British National Day of Prayer on Sunday, September 7th, by gathering at the ruins of the Great Synagogue to offer special prayers for a British victory over Nazism. Special services in synagogues and temples throughout England, including the recital of the prayer of Neilah and the blowing of the Shofar, will mark the second anniversary of the second world war and the first anniversary of the ferocious Nazi air attacks on London which reached their peak about this time last year. In a message proclaiming Jewish parficipation in the National Day of Prayer. Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz of England said: "Let this be a day of supplication for delivery from the terrors that threaten our beloved country, ns well as a time of mourning for the thousands of our brethren in Poland and Rumania who have fallen victims to the hatelust and bloodlust of this most merciless persecutor." Dr. Hertz will conduct services in London from the pulpit of the Great Synagogue for the first time since it was damaged in the Nazi air raids last year. Unusual interest has been aroused here in the outdoor services at the destroyed synagogue. JAPS TO LAUNCH Tl-J EW1SH S Tokyo (WNS)—The small Jewish population of Japan awaited with apprehension the opening on September 7th of the first organized anti-Jewish campaign in the history of the country which will seek to impress upon the Japanese people the fact that "Jews are the enemies of the world." Former Premiere General Senjuro Hayashi has banded together the country's extreme nationalist elements into an anti-Semitic organization which, according to all indications, will operate with the same cold ruthlessness which characterized the Storm Troopers in Nazi Germany and the fanatically anti-Semitic Iron Guards in Rumania. Confirmation of the report that the anti-Jewish campaign will take on a witch-hunting character was furnished by the newspaper "Hoohi" which reAnnouncement was made this week by Benjamin Bronston, president, and members of the executive committee of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation of the selection of Morris Klass, Washington, D. C, as the executive director of the Federation. Mr. Klass will assume the position October 1st. Mr. Klass has served ^s the executive director of the Jewish Social Service Agency of Washington, D. C. since 1934. He has made an enviable record there developing the agency from a small staff of four employees to an agency serving the entire community and taking responsibility for all case work services to Jewish residents of the city. Morris Klass was raised and educated in the primary schools of Sioux City, Iowa. He entered the University of Michigan in 1925 and was graduated with high honors receiving his certificate of Social Work in 1931. He was elected a member of the honorary scholastic societies. Phi Eta Sigma and Alpha Kappa Delta. Following graduation he was employed on a social study carried on jointly by the Johns Hopkins Institute of Law and the United States Department of Justice. This study was for the purpose of making case histories of Federal and States prisoners to secure data for the establishing of a parole plan for Federal offenders and for classification and treatment of these men while in prison. The Washington Jewish Agency, position which he resigned to come to Miami, has been accepted by the Washington community and nationally as a model for effective case work service to those in need of help. It combines assistance to families, children, refugees, the Aged, and the ill all in one service. It has established two loan funds with a total capitalization of over $40,000 to assist small Jewish merchants who are threatened with the loss of their livelihood. The Jewish Social Service Agency has also an employment service for Jewish unemployed, a dental clinic, and a staff of thirty five of the finest physicians (CONTINUED ON PAGE 6) (CONTINUED ON PAGE 6) WAR MAY WHISK AWAY WHISKERS Jerusalem (WNS)—Beards, traditional among orthodox Jews for centuries, may become one of the casualties of World War II. It has been found difficult for bearded men to don gas masks. As a result, when the Palestine Government received a shipment of 120.000 gas masks for distribution to the population, the Chief Rabbinate was obliged to call a special meeting to consider whether to permit sharing of beards in case of emergency.

FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 5, 1941 'JewtetiFhrkUan PAGE THREE FROM THE SWIVEL CHAIR By WILLIAM I. BOXERMAN. Director !%.. Florida Regional Office Anti-Defamation League Ho Knows HitUrism Dr. Ernst W. Meyer is appearing in this area under the auspices of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America Here is one man who can speak authoritatively about the German nation of yesterday and today ... As first secretary of the German Embassy in Washington from 1931 to 1937, he watched the unfolding of Germany's world ambition, until he could stomach it no longer In May 1937, on his own initiative, he tendered his resignation ... By then he realized that there was little likelihood of a change in Nazi policies. A man must have a strong sense of right and wrong to turn his back on a long and distinguished diplomatic career, which first began in 1921 when he entered the German diplomatic service Now Meyer, a veteran of the German army in the first world war, spends all of his spare time fighting Nazism, trying to awaken in the American people a full realization of the need for defense against Hitler During the school year he teaches international relations at Bucknell University. During the week of September 7th Dr. Meyer will address the Miami and Miami Beach Chambers of Commerce, the Civitan Club, the Knights of Columbus, and several other local organizations ... He will be interviewed on Monday evening, September 8th, at 10 p. m. by Jack Kofoed, over station WIOD Appearances also will be made in Ft. Lauderdale. West Palm Beach, and other Florida communities Meyer is on his way back to Pennsylvania after a tour of the southern states. On the Air Waves Do you ever listen to the Miami Round Table programs? They have been Improving in quality from week to week Tune your dial to 610 next Monday night, at 9:30 Station WIOD is to be commended upon giving this half hour in the cause of good will and interfaith understanding. Bloody Merchandise Imports from Germany naturally have dropped because of the war Recent action by our government in blacklisting Nazidominated South American companies also has helped to cut down the traffic in merchandise made by the blood and sweat of slave people. We learn, though, that the Nazis now have found a new way of circumventing the boycott Dr. Ernst W. Meyer German and sometimes Italian planes unload merchandise in South America, then ship it by American planes to Miami Who might the cooperating agents here be? It's worth speculating .We do hope that the leak will be plugged and that the blacklist of companies under Nazi influence will be extended to exclude all of this commerce. Read and Remember Jews hardly need be convinced that "You Can't Do Business With Hitler" However, even they woud profit by reading Douglas Miller's book of that name ... A knowledge of the points he makes will enable you For Safety, Security and Liberal Return ... Place Your Funds In Dade Federal Each Account Insured Up To $5,000 By The Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation IIAIIE FEIIIiaUL •* • P MIAMI 4 5 NORTHEAST FIRST AVEMUI Resources Over $6,100,000 J. M. UPTON. President to describe objectively and without emotional bias the plight of American business in a Nazicontrolled world. Economic democracy, says the writer, (who was formerly our commercial attache in Berlin) cannot survive if Hitler wins the war Nazi economy is but pan of Nazi politics Nazi racial theories would demand readjustments in American business which would completely alter its character Mr. Miller concludes that the only hope of the American business man lies in a British victory ... If only for the sake of self-preservation, he must work toward this end Gut shabbos! JEWISH WEALTH IN GREECE IS 10 BE Istanbul (W N S)—The Nazi controlled press in Greece has launched a violent anti-Jewish campaign, blaming the Jews for "tricking" Greece into war war against Italy, according to reports received here. The antiJewish campaign in the press will be followed, it was reported on good authority, by wholesale confiscation of Jewish wealth in occupied France. The Nazi press declared that Nazi expropriation of Jewish property and wealth was justified since it was the Jews who forced Greece to resist the invasion. Forty-three prominent Greek Jews were accused of "complicity," along with 134 noted Greek statesmen, in ""dragging" Greece into war. While the Nazis assured the Greeks that the money seized from the Jews will be used to rebuild destroyed Greek cities and to aid needy Greeks, informed sources here predicted that the funds will enrich the Nazi treasury. This is Eddie Cantor's story: One lunatic approached another who was busily scrawling on a sheet of paper. "Whatcha doin'." he asked. "I'm writing a letter to myself." "What does it say?" "YOU must be crazy." the first lunatic said, "I won't receive it until tomorrow!" KING'S..**^ KOMMENTS @ 0 The views expressed do not necessarily represent the editorial opinion of The Jewish Floridian Joseph A. Berman Joseph A. Berman, attorney, has opened new offices in the Mercantile National Bank Bldg., 420 Lincoln Road, Mami Beach. Mr. Berman since his arrival here has taken an active part in communal affairs and is at present serving as vice president and chairman of the board of the Y. M. H. A. in addition to being an officer and director in the Civic League of Miami Beach and the National Children's Cardiac Home and a director of many others. There was the B'nai B'rith convention That this week drew attention From all over the state they'd all made a date To Labor Day week-end, be sure and attend The annual Jamboree Florida lodges B. B. Their stay in Daytona Beach A gathering—it was a peach The hosts did their best, the delegates did the rest There was the bill of fare Sessions that got in your hair Lots or resolutions and reports Much more talk and what retorts And new officers were elected The best of course were selected What was accomplished you will ask For this my dears I take you to task For as always things are done Before and after if the battle is won. Rather surprising and worth Kommenting upon is the on again off again—on again Rabbi and his new job. Accepting the Pulpit tendered—a letter instead of his presence was received on the due date—stating that he had accepted another position in another field—the reason—we don't know everything— \o and behold two weeks later announcement of his arrival here to assume the same position is made by the Center— and to top it off in our editor's mail on the same day comes the announcement from New York of his appointment as national executive field secretary of a national philanthropic group—a double header—you figure it out. You've heard of people patting themselves on the back but when they spend 16 G's to erect a monument to themselves, that's something! There are some categories or classifications of professions that come in the sphere where ethics seems to be a prime factor—although ethics, in everything, whether business or profession should be a requisite in King's opinion—then we come to the defining of ethics which is all a matter of opinion—but what King says is for Gads sakes—if you preach it, practice it—as for instance the placing of a greeting card or personal greeting in the Rosh Hashona edition of the Floridian (plug for the advertising department) is unheard of— absolutely unethical—against my policy—but for free—that's different—writeups—with addresses —and pictures— that's ethical— even for a lawyer or a doctor— CONSISTENCY—thou ART a jewel—but where ART thou? King tips you off—a new feature with a local setting will start shortly in the Jewish Floridian—watch for it. Year pie crusts are crisp and flaky.

FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 5. 1941 J enisti f*>rHkw PAGE SEVEN THE Y. M. H. A. NOTES Br HARRY SCHWARTZ Trareler Schwartz Return* It's good being back again in Miami after spending several weeks traveling on business and pleasure. Once more I want to thank our executive director, Maurice Grossman, who has on so many occasions helped write the "Y" columns and did a swell job. With all the interesting sights on the trip, Miami still holds first charm for me, especially getting back to my wife and two children and the Y. M. H. A. and my friends there. My only regret upon my return was learning of the illness of our energetic executive director, Maurice Grossman. Personally, I believe Morris could use a good rest, and now. Bowling Jack Apte, manager of the bowling league, announces that he is busy now procuring trophies and awards for the winning teams and members thereof. These prizes will be distributed at a banquet that will be held in the very near future. In the meantime, the new bowling league is open and all members desiring to participate in this fine sport please be at the Miami Recreation Alleys any Tuesday night at 7:30. If you want to be on a team, please be sure and be there early. News 'Round Town Charles Blau, who did such a swell piece of work last year with the post Yom Kippur dance held at the Y clublooms, has JEWISH CENTER AT MIAMI BEACH TO BE OPEN IT LIKES YOU been asked to accept this chairmanship again for the 1941 affair which will be equally successful under his guidance. As for the tenth annual Y dance which is due to take place either the latter part of November or the first of December, the Y is definitely set on securing a big name band for this affair.. Al Reisman and Sam Seitlin are actively engaged in receiving all the data possible with reference to the securing of this big name orchestra. Among those in mind are Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Sammy Kaye and a few others unknown to your correspondent at this time. Sorry to state that the Y diamondball team lost out in the second round of the Daily News Gold Ball Tournament to the Stanton Memorial team. All in all, Frank Rose deserves a vote of thanks for the fine work done with the young group of boys. Although they were not successful in all the games, they gained their experience and they will do a better job during the next diamondball season. Deuces Win Duckpin Title Having won the first half championship of the Y. M. H. A. duckpin league, Sammy Tendrich and his teammates Jerry Goldsmith, Pete Silverman, Louis Spector and Leroy Feldman went ahead and copped the second half championship to win the title unchallenged. In the play-off for second place, Al Berkowitz's Aces with Hal Berkowitz, Frank Rose, Herman Waitsman, George Rachlin and Sol Levin, defeated Murry Streit's Zippers to clinch second place. The captains and manager, Jack Apte, are to be commended for the splendid showing in this tournament. The following are final averages: High average, Sam Tendrich. High set, Sol Weinkle. High game, Jerry Goldsmith. The final team averages: Team W Deuces — 21 Aces — — 16 Zippers —16 Sentinels —13 Quints 12 Rabbi Dr. Samuel Bension of New York will arrive here today to prepare for the opening of the new Miami Beach Jewish Center, now being constructed at Euclid avenue and Fourteenth street. Rabbi Bension, has been active in civic and religious affairs in Palestine as well as in the United States, and will direct the center's activities. "We hope to stimulate the cultural activity of the young men and women of the area," said M. H. Frankel, president of the center, Wednesday, "and we feel that in bringing Rabbi Bension here CAPITOL LETTER Liii Highlights in the Happenings at the National Capital by MAURICE WARNER MMMMMMHSini Topnotchers 12 Washington:—Soviet Russia is a blank spot on the map as far as any information concerning the fate of thousands of refugees from central Europe is available. The three principal sources of information in Washington confess themselves helpless at this time to plumb the mystery of what has happened to the people in the path of the advancing Nazi armies. These official agencies are the State Department, the Red Cross and the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees. All have been deluged with inquiries from Americans with relatives and friends in territories on the Soviet western frontier, but none to date can give any answers. However, it is reported that the most effective of these organizations, the Red Cross, may shortly move into the picture. Action on the part of the Red Cross is waiting—as this is written—the receipt of a formal request on the part of the Soviet Government to move into Russia with relief work which will provide the first effective pipeline of information for distraught and anxious relatives of refugees who fled the Hitler terror into the Baltic states and the Ukraine. Background of the Red Cross failure to move in earlier lies in the fact that to date the Soviet Government has banned internaDr. Samuel Bension to guide our activities, we are providing the finest leadership available in the world today." Frankel explained that the Miami Beach Jewish Center, which will be opened officially September 14, has been built by a group of prominent Jewish citizens at a cost of $50,000, and that the work still to be done on the interior would bring the expenditure on the building to more than $1000,000. He stressed the fact that there has been no public subscription of funds, the entire project having been financed by the group which conceived the idea about a year ago. Harry Sirkin is chairman of arrangements; while Sam Friedland will act as chairman of the interior. Built around a Temple which will seat more than 700 persons, the Center will contain social rooms, studies, library, a Sunday school and clubrooms for the younger set. "We hope that the Center will become a gathering place for the Jewish draftees and other Army men who come to Miami Beach on leave," Frankel added. "This feature alone will be of great service to many of our young men who now find it impossible to meet young people in congenial surroundings while on furlough. "The same service will be valuable throughout the year to all those who come to Miami Beach —an invaluable aid in forming friendly contacts for those who come here on visits or to make their homes." tional Red Cross work in that country and heads of the international organization feel the next move must come from Joe Stalin and company. Look for another widespread attack by U. S. authorities on Nazi agents in this country that will rival the recent round-ups that purged the German consuls, rounded up a number of spies and eliminated the notorious Trans-Ocean propaganda agency from the American scene. The new drive will mark no new activity on the part of the Department of Justice and other Federal agencies. The evidence necessary to dispatch many times the number of Axis agents from our shores than have already been booted out is in the Federal government files. But as always the speed with which government agents can move in arrests and court proceedings is limited by the State Department. Indicative of this is the fact that the F. B. I. will not touch a case involving a Japanese consular official, under orders of the State Department. Recently, the car of an aide in the Japanese Naval Attaches' office was discovered by Washington police with several bullet holes in it. The attache refused to.say how the holes got there and the Washington police attempted to turn the case over to the F. B. I. But the latter agency shied away from it like a scared colt. Poetic justice note—the former National Press Building quarters of Trans-Ocean News Service is now occupied by a termite exterminating firm. London (WNS)—The Nazi radio, condemning the "unscrupulousness" of the British-Russian invasion of Iran, accused the Jewish population of Iran of betraying that country by conducting espionage work in behalf of Britain and Soviet Russia. The Nazi announcer warned that Persia's 60,000 Jews would soon be made to suffer for their "cowardly crime." Only Nazi agents were permitted to remain in the country, it was reported.

5 REFUGEES ON
NAVEMAR DIED
TO U. S.
Bermuda (WNS)The Spanish
freighter Navemar, which nor-
mally has accomodations for
about 18 passengers, left for Cu-
ba, with more than 1,100 Eu-
ropean refugees crammed
aboard, after making its first call
here. From Cuba to Navemar,
which was described as a "float-
ing concentration camp" by Joint
Distribution Committee officials
in Lisbon, will head for the Uni-
ted States.
Four of the ship's passengers
died en route to Bermuda while
a fifth died after being hospital-
ized here. The Navemar left be-
hind when it sailed for Cuba six
others, including an expectant
mother, who were too ill to con-
tinue the voyage.
Before sailing the refugees
sent a message of thanks to the
people of Bermuda for the "first
experience of real humanity" en-
countered on the long trip from
Lisbon. Local health officials
declared that it was remarkable
that no epidemic had broken out
among the ship's passengers.
Many of the refugees confirmed
reports received here earlier that
they had paid anywhere from
$400 to $1,500 for passage. The
refugees slept in tiers in the
holds of the ship. Upon their
arrival here, the refugees sent
out for fresh fruit and vegetables.

NAZIS ROLE 75
PER CENT OF THE
WORLD'S JEWS
Zurich (WNS)With the Nazi
invasion of the Russian Ukraine.
Fuehrer Hitler now rules more
than 10.000.000 Jews, or about
75 per cent of the Jews in the
world, the Nazi newspaper
"Grenzbote" reported with ob-
vious satisfaction, predicting that
the "total world solution" of the
Jewish problem is imminent.
Pointing out that virtually
every great Jewish community
in the world, with the exception
!of Great Britain and the United
States, has fallen in Nazi hands,
the Nazi newspaper stated that
j "Jewish economic and political
' power throughout the world" has
been smashed.
"Grenzbote" assured its read-
ers that before the end of the
war the Jewish communities of
Britain and America would share
the fate of the Jews of Poland,
Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hol-
land, France, Rumania, Hun-
gary and White Russia.
POLISH
BANS
EJECTSENDEK
London (WNS)Poland's ex-
iled Government has flung back
the proffered support of the anti-
Semitic Endeks in a dramatic
showdown during which Pre-
miere Wladislas Sikorski threw
Endek Leader Tadeusz Bielicki
out of his room.
Prof. Bielecki. head of the
troublesome Endek minority
among the Poles in exile, had
approached Premier Sikorski
with a memorandum offering
support of the Government in re-
turn for appointment of Bielicki
as Vice-Premier and acceptance
of an Endek progrom which in-
cluded retention of ghettos for
Jews in post-war Poland.
The conference became more
and more heated as Bielecki out-
lined his extreme demands until
the indignant Premier brusquely
ended the meeting and asked the
Endek leader to leave the room.
Refusal of the exiled Govern-
ment to make concessions to the
Endeks was taken to indicate
that the Cabinet intended to
abide by its oft-repeated pledge
of adherence to democracy and
equality of all citizens in a re-
constructed Poland. The Gov-
ernment has enunciated a policy
of "equal duties, equal rights"
for the Jews.
Since the removal of the Polish
Government to London at the
end of 1939, the Endek Party
(abbreviation for National Demo-
crats,) have carried on persistent
opposition to the Government's
policy and agitation for the Jews.
The Endek paper, Jestem Polia-
kem (I Am A Pole,) proved to
be a thorn in the side of the
Government.
Meanwhile, the Polish Govern-
ment is continuing its efforts to
obtain release of imprisoned Pol-
ish citizens in Soviet Russia,
many of whom are Jews. Hen-
ryk Ehrlich and Victor Alter,
leaders of the Bund (Polish Jew-
ish Socialist Party,) are among
the latest to be freed from a
Moscow prison.

DAY OF PRAYER
AT SYNAGOGUE
London (WNS)London Jews
will participate in the British Na-
tional Day of Prayer on Sunday,
September 7th, by gathering at
the ruins of the Great Synagogue
to offer special prayers for a
British victory over Nazism.
Special services in synagogues
and temples throughout England,
including the recital of the pray-
er of Neilah and the blowing of
the Shofar, will mark the second
anniversary of the second world
war and the first anniversary of
the ferocious Nazi air attacks on
London which reached their
peak about this time last year.
In a message proclaiming Jew-
ish parficipation in the National
Day of Prayer. Chief Rabbi Jo-
seph Hertz of England said: "Let
this be a day of supplication for
delivery from the terrors that
threaten our beloved country, ns
well as a time of mourning for
the thousands of our brethren in
Poland and Rumania who have
fallen victims to the hatelust and
bloodlust of this most merciless
persecutor."
Dr. Hertz will conduct services
in London from the pulpit of the
Great Synagogue for the first
time since it was damaged in the
Nazi air raids last year. Unusual
interest has been aroused here
in the outdoor services at the
destroyed synagogue.
JAPS TO LAUNCH
Tl-J EW1SH
S
Tokyo (WNS)The small Jew-
ish population of Japan awaited
with apprehension the opening
on September 7th of the first or-
ganized anti-Jewish campaign in
the history of the country which
will seek to impress upon the
Japanese people the fact that
"Jews are the enemies of the
world."
Former Premiere General Sen-
juro Hayashi has banded together
the country's extreme nationalist
elements into an anti-Semitic or-
ganization which, according to
all indications, will operate with
the same cold ruthlessness which
characterized the Storm Troopers
in Nazi Germany and the fanati-
cally anti-Semitic Iron Guards in
Rumania.
Confirmation of the report
that the anti-Jewish campaign
will take on a witch-hunting
character was furnished by the
newspaper "Hoohi" which re-
Announcement was made this
week by Benjamin Bronston,
president, and members of the
executive committee of the
Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
tion of the selection of Morris
Klass, Washington, D. C, as the
executive director of the Federa-
tion. Mr. Klass will assume the
position October 1st.
Mr. Klass has served ^s the
executive director of the Jewish
Social Service Agency of Wash-
ington, D. C. since 1934. He has
made an enviable record there
developing the agency from a
small staff of four employees to
an agency serving the entire
community and taking responsi-
bility for all case work services
to Jewish residents of the city.
Morris Klass was raised and
educated in the primary schools
of Sioux City, Iowa. He entered
the University of Michigan in
1925 and was graduated with
high honors receiving his certifi-
cate of Social Work in 1931. He
was elected a member of the
honorary scholastic societies. Phi
Eta Sigma and Alpha Kappa
Delta. Following graduation he
was employed on a social study
carried on jointly by the Johns
Hopkins Institute of Law and
the United States Department of
Justice. This study was for the
purpose of making case histories
of Federal and States prisoners
to secure data for the establish-
ing of a parole plan for Federal
offenders and for classification
and treatment of these men while
in prison.
The Washington Jewish Agen-
cy, position which he resigned
to come to Miami, has been ac-
cepted by the Washington com-
munity and nationally as a model
for effective case work service
to those in need of help. It com-
bines assistance to families,
children, refugees, the Aged, and
the ill all in one service. It has
established two loan funds with
a total capitalization of over $40,-
000 to assist small Jewish mer-
chants who are threatened with
the loss of their livelihood.
The Jewish Social Service
Agency has also an employment
service for Jewish unemployed,
a dental clinic, and a staff of
thirty five of the finest physicians

It has been found difficult
for bearded men to don gas
masks. As a result, when the
Palestine Government received
a shipment of 120.000 gas
masks for distribution to the
population, the Chief Rabbin-
ate was obliged to call a spec-
ial meeting to consider
whether to permit sharing of
beards in case of emergency.

FROM THE SWIVEL CHAIR
By WILLIAM I. BOXERMAN. Director
!%..
Florida Regional Office
Anti-Defamation League
Ho Knows HitUrism
Dr. Ernst W. Meyer is appear-
ing in this area under the aus-
pices of the Federal Council of
Churches of Christ in America
. Here is one man who can
speak authoritatively about the
German nation of yesterday and
today ... As first secretary of
the German Embassy in Wash-
ington from 1931 to 1937, he
watched the unfolding of Ger-
many's world ambition, until he
could stomach it no longer .
In May 1937, on his own initia-
tive, he tendered his resignation
... By then he realized that there
was little likelihood of a change
in Nazi policies.
A man must have a strong
sense of right and wrong to turn
his back on a long and distin-
guished diplomatic career, which
first began in 1921 when he en-
tered the German diplomatic ser-
vice Now Meyer, a veteran
of the German army in the first
world war, spends all of his
spare time fighting Nazism, try-
ing to awaken in the American
people a full realization of the
need for defense against Hitler
. During the school year he
teaches international relations at
Bucknell University.
During the week of September
7th Dr. Meyer will address the
Miami and Miami Beach Cham-
bers of Commerce, the Civitan
Club, the Knights of Columbus,
and several other local organiza-
tions ... He will be interviewed
on Monday evening, September
8th, at 10 p. m. by Jack Kofoed,
over station WIOD Appear-
ances also will be made in Ft.
Lauderdale. West Palm Beach,
and other Florida communities
. Meyer is on his way back to
Pennsylvania after a tour of the
southern states.

Do you ever listen to the Mi-
ami Round Table programs? .
They have been Improving in

day night, at 9:30 Station
WIOD is to be commended upon
giving this half hour in the
cause of good will and inter-
faith understanding.
Bloody Merchandise
Imports from Germany natur-
ally have dropped because of
the war Recent action by our
government in blacklisting Nazi-
dominated South American com-
panies also has helped to cut
down the traffic in merchandise
made by the blood and sweat of
slave people.
We learn, though, that the Na-
zis now have found a new way
of circumventing the boycott .
Dr. Ernst W. Meyer
German and sometimes Italian
planes unload merchandise in
South America, then ship it by
American planes to Miami .
Who might the cooperating
agents here be? It's worth
speculating .We do hope that
the leak will be plugged and that
the blacklist of companies under
Nazi influence will be extended
to exclude all of this commerce.
Read and Remember
Jews hardly need be convinced
that "You Can't Do Business
With Hitler" However, even
they woud profit by reading
Douglas Miller's book of that
name ... A knowledge of the
points he makes will enable you

American business in a Nazi-
controlled world.
Economic democracy, says the
writer, (who was formerly our
commercial attache in Berlin)
cannot survive if Hitler wins the
war Nazi economy is but pan
of Nazi politics Nazi racial
theories would demand readjust-
ments in American business
which would completely alter its
character Mr. Miller con-
cludes that the only hope of the
American business man lies in a
British victory ... If only for the
sake of self-preservation, he must
work toward this end .
Gut shabbos!
JEWISH WEALTH
IN GREECE IS 10
BE
Istanbul (W N S)The Nazi
controlled press in Greece has
launched a violent anti-Jewish
campaign, blaming the Jews for
"tricking" Greece into war
war against Italy, according to
reports received here. The anti-
Jewish campaign in the press
will be followed, it was reported
on good authority, by wholesale
confiscation of Jewish wealth in
occupied France.
The Nazi press declared that
Nazi expropriation of Jewish
property and wealth was justified
since it was the Jews who forced
Greece to resist the invasion.
Forty-three prominent Greek
Jews were accused of "complic-
ity," along with 134 noted Greek
statesmen, in ""dragging" Greece
into war. While the Nazis as-
sured the Greeks that the money
seized from the Jews will be
used to rebuild destroyed Greek
cities and to aid needy Greeks,
informed sources here predicted
that the funds will enrich the
Nazi treasury.
This is Eddie Cantor's story:
One lunatic approached another
who was busily scrawling on a
sheet of paper. "Whatcha doin'."
he asked. "I'm writing a letter
to myself." "What does it say?"
"YOU must be crazy." the first
lunatic said, "I won't receive it
until tomorrow!"

THE Y. M. H. A.
NOTES
Br HARRY SCHWARTZ
Trareler Schwartz Return*
It's good being back again in
Miami after spending several
weeks traveling on business and
pleasure. Once more I want to
thank our executive director,
Maurice Grossman, who has on so
many occasions helped write the
"Y" columns and did a swell job.
With all the interesting sights
on the trip, Miami still holds first
charm for me, especially getting
back to my wife and two child-
ren and the Y. M. H. A. and my
friends there.
My only regret upon my return
was learning of the illness of our
energetic executive director,
Maurice Grossman. Personally,
I believe Morris could use a
good rest, and now.
Bowling
Jack Apte, manager of the
bowling league, announces that
he is busy now procuring troph-
ies and awards for the winning
teams and members thereof.
These prizes will be distributed
at a banquet that will be held in
the very near future. In the
meantime, the new bowling
league is open and all members
desiring to participate in this
fine sport please be at the Miami
Recreation Alleys any Tuesday
night at 7:30. If you want to be
on a team, please be sure and be
there early.
News 'Round Town
Charles Blau, who did such a
swell piece of work last year
with the post Yom Kippur dance
held at the Y clublooms, has

been asked to accept this chair-
manship again for the 1941 af-
fair which will be equally suc-
cessful under his guidance.
As for the tenth annual Y
dance which is due to take place
either the latter part of Novem-
ber or the first of December, the
Y is definitely set on securing a
big name band for this affair..
Al Reisman and Sam Seitlin are
actively engaged in receiving all
the data possible with reference
to the securing of this big name
orchestra. Among those in mind
are Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey,
Benny Goodman, Sammy Kaye
and a few others unknown to
your correspondent at this time.
Sorry to state that the Y dia-
mondball team lost out in the
second round of the Daily News
Gold Ball Tournament to the
Stanton Memorial team. All in
all, Frank Rose deserves a vote
of thanks for the fine work done
with the young group of boys.
Although they were not success-
ful in all the games, they gained
their experience and they will do
a better job during the next dia-
mondball season.
Deuces Win Duckpin Title
Having won the first half
championship of the Y. M. H. A.
duckpin league, Sammy Tendrich
and his teammates Jerry Gold-
smith, Pete Silverman, Louis
Spector and Leroy Feldman went
ahead and copped the second half
championship to win the title
unchallenged. In the play-off
for second place, Al Berkowitz's
Aces with Hal Berkowitz, Frank
Rose, Herman Waitsman, George
Rachlin and Sol Levin, defeated
Murry Streit's Zippers to clinch
second place. The captains and
manager, Jack Apte, are to be
commended for the splendid
showing in this tournament. The
following are final averages:
High average, Sam Tendrich.
High set, Sol Weinkle.

States, and will direct the center's
activities.
"We hope to stimulate the cul-
tural activity of the young men
and women of the area," said M.

CAPITOL LETTER
Liii
Highlights in the Happenings at the National Capital
by MAURICE WARNER
MMMMMMHSini
Topnotchers .....................12
Washington:Soviet Russia is
a blank spot on the map as far
as any information concerning
the fate of thousands of refugees
from central Europe is available.
The three principal sources of
information in Washington con-
fess themselves helpless at this
time to plumb the mystery of
what has happened to the people
in the path of the advancing Nazi
armies. These official agencies
are the State Department, the
Red Cross and the Intergovern-
mental Committee on Refugees.
All have been deluged with in-
quiries from Americans with rel-
atives and friends in territories
on the Soviet western frontier,
but none to date can give any
answers. However, it is reported
that the most effective of these
organizations, the Red Cross,
may shortly move into the pic-
ture.
Action on the part of the Red
Cross is waitingas this is writ-
tenthe receipt of a formal re-
quest on the part of the Soviet
Government to move into Rus-
sia with relief work which will
provide the first effective pipe-
line of information for distraught
and anxious relatives of refugees
who fled the Hitler terror into
the Baltic states and the Ukraine.
Background of the Red Cross
failure to move in earlier lies in
the fact that to date the Soviet
Government has banned interna-
Dr. Samuel Bension
to guide our activities, we are
providing the finest leadership
available in the world today."
Frankel explained that the Mi-
ami Beach Jewish Center, which
will be opened officially Septem-
ber 14, has been built by a group
of prominent Jewish citizens at
a cost of $50,000, and that the
work still to be done on the in-
terior would bring the expendi-
ture on the building to more
than $1000,000. He stressed the
fact that there has been no public
subscription of funds, the entire
project having been financed by
the group which conceived the
idea about a year ago.
Harry Sirkin is chairman of
arrangements; while Sam Fried-
land will act as chairman of the
interior.
Built around a Temple which
will seat more than 700 persons,
the Center will contain social
rooms, studies, library, a Sunday
school and clubrooms for the
younger set.
"We hope that the Center will
become a gathering place for the
Jewish draftees and other Army
men who come to Miami Beach
on leave," Frankel added. "This
feature alone will be of great
service to many of our young
men who now find it impossible
to meet young people in congen-
ial surroundings while on fur-
lough.
"The same service will be val-
uable throughout the year to all
those who come to Miami Beach
an invaluable aid in forming
friendly contacts for those who
come here on visits or to make
their homes."
tional Red Cross work in that
country and heads of the inter-
national organization feel the
next move must come from Joe
Stalin and company.
Look for another widespread
attack by U. S. authorities on Na-
zi agents in this country that
will rival the recent round-ups
that purged the German consuls,
rounded up a number of spies
and eliminated the notorious
Trans-Ocean propaganda agency
from the American scene.
The new drive will mark no
new activity on the part of the
Department of Justice and other
Federal agencies. The evidence
necessary to dispatch many times
the number of Axis agents from
our shores than have already
been booted out is in the Federal
government files.
But as always the speed with
which government agents can
move in arrests and court pro-
ceedings is limited by the State
Department. Indicative of this
is the fact that the F. B. I. will
not touch a case involving a Jap-
anese consular official, under or-
ders of the State Department.
Recently, the car of an aide
in the Japanese Naval Attaches'
office was discovered by Wash-
ington police with several bullet
holes in it. The attache refused
to.say how the holes got there
and the Washington police at-
tempted to turn the case over to
the F. B. I. But the latter agency
shied away from it like a scared
colt.
Poetic justice notethe former
National Press Building quarters
of Trans-Ocean News Service is
now occupied by a termite ex-
terminating firm.
London (WNS)The Nazi ra-
dio, condemning the "unscrupul-
ousness" of the British-Russian
invasion of Iran, accused the
Jewish population of Iran of be-
traying that country by conduct-
ing espionage work in behalf of
Britain and Soviet Russia. The
Nazi announcer warned that
Persia's 60,000 Jews would soon
be made to suffer for their "cow-
ardly crime."
Only Nazi agents were permit-
ted to remain in the country, it
was reported.
