MORE EXECUTED
US TERROR REIGN
E
Geneva (WNS)Nazi-instigat-
ed pogroms throughout the Czech
Protectorate were feared as Nazi
Protector Reinhard Hoydrich
pressed his campaign of anti-
Jewish terror, ordering the ar-
rest of hundreds of Jews and
closing down all Jewish schools,
according to reports received
here.
Unable to stem the rising tide
of anti-Nazi demonstrations, Hoy-
drich, a former Gestapo chieftain
has sent hundreds of Czechs, in-
cluding many Jews, before Nazi
firing squads. In Prague alone
another five Jews weie executed
as "economic saboteurs".
While Gestapo agents con-
tinued their anti-Jewish repres-
sions, the Nazi press in Prague
demanded the immediate solu-
tion of the "Jewish problem".
The press suggested that all Jews
physically able to work be sent
to special labor camps, while all
young and elderly Jews be sent
to concentration camps.
A new decree compels all Jews
to do their shopping only once
a week. The hour for Jewish
shopping has been set late in the
evening so that Jewish house-
wives find all supplies exhausted
when they go to the stores to
purchase their food for the week.
At the same time, it was an-
nounced that Jews will have to

JEWRY WILL BE
REPRESENTED IN
CZECH COUNCIL
New York (WNS)Assurances
that a representative of the Jew-
ish community will be included
in the Czechoslovakian National
Council now being formed were
given to the American Jewish
Congress and the World Jewish
Congress by President Benes of
Czechoslovakia in a message
brought to this country by his
representative, Jan Lichnor,
Minister without Portfolio in the
Czechoslovakian Government-in-
exile, it was announced here.
Minister Lichner was the guest
at a luncheon arranged by the
American Jewish Congress at the
Essex House and attended by
Czechoslovak Consul General
Karel Hudec. In behalf of the
Czechoslovakian Government,
Minister Lichner stated that the
Government is fully aware of the
tragedy suffered by the Jewish
people under Nari oppression, not
only in Czechoslovakia, but
throughout the world, and that it
regards as essential to the recon-
struction of a democratic Cze-
choslovakia the lestoration of
equality status for the Jews.
Members of the Government
have conferred with representa-
tives of the British Section of the
World Jewish Congress on this
subject, Minister Lichner said,
and have, moreover, among them-
selves held a number of discus-
sions and have reached this argu-
ment officially.
ARGENTINE TO DEPORT 45
JEWISH REFUGEES TO SPAIN
Buenos Aires (WNS)Forty-
five Jewish refugees, who be-
lieved they were finally saved
from Nazi persecutions when they
landed in Argentina recently, will
be returned to Spain as a result
of the Argentine Government's
adamant refusal to admit them,
it was learned here. Since there
arrival here the refugees have
been detained at the Hotel de los
Immigrantes, the Argentine
equivalent of Ellis Island.
The refugees are the innocent
victims of a bitter dispute on im-
migration policy between Acting
President Ramon Castillo and
Minister of Agriculture Daniel
Anadey y Videla. Pro-Axis Cas-
tillo appears determined to halt
immigration while Videla is
fighting for a more liberal im-
migration policy.
FIND BY HUSBAND
New York (WNS)Mrs. Paul
Ehrlich, widow of the German
Jewish scientist who discovered
salvarsan, was presented with a
$1,000 check at a dinner spon-
sored by the American Social
Hygiene Association in commem-
oration of the 30th anniversary
of the famous discovery. Mrs.
Ehrlich arrived in the United
States as a refugee from Ger-
many two months ago.
Dr. Ehrlich died in Germany
in 1915, a few years after his
606th experiment had produced
salvarsan. Dr. Thomas Parran.
Surgeon General of the United
States Public Health Service, in
his tribute said that "the discov-
ery of salvarsan was the most
brilliant of a scries of dramatic
events in the modern study of
syphilis."
"Dr. Ehrlich's many contribu-
tions to the advancement of med-
icine," Dr. Parran added, "placed
him with Paster, Lister and Koch
among the immortals of medi-
cine" In her address of appre-
ciation, the 78-year-old widow of
Dr. Ehrlich sajd that when the
great scientist died in 1915 the
world was at war "and people
hardly knew of his passing."
Istanbul (WNS)Jewish Com-
munists and atheists in Soviet
Russia, who usually unloosed an
anti-religion propaganda barrage
on the eve of the Jewish holidays,
were ordered to cease their ac-
tivities before'this year's holi-
days, it was reported in Soviet
circles here.
These sources said that tne
Soviet Government barred pub-
lication this year of anti-religious
tracts and pamphlets which here-
tofore were issued in Yiddish on
the eve of the high holidays. At
no time during the past holidays,
it was stressed, were any steps
taken to hinder Soviet Jews in
their observance of the holidays.
London (WNS)Henry Zvei-
er noted Belgian Zionist leader,
was sentenced to death in a
concentration camp in Nazi Ger-
many after he warned local Nazi
officials in Antwerp that the war
was not yet over and that the
Nazis would be compelled to pay
for their crimes, Belgian circles
here reported.
IT LAWS
INTRODUCED IN
BALTIC STATES
Stockholm (WNS)The exist-
ence of Jews in Lithuania, Latvia
and Estonia, which fell into Nazi
hands during the early stages of
the Nazi-Russo war, parallels that
of the Jews in Nazi-occupied Po-
land, according to reports brought
here by journalists returning
from the war areas.
The Nazi occupying authorities
have forbidden Jews in the Baltic
countries to shop in non-Jewish
stores, compelling Jewish house-
wives to do their shopping from
10 to 12 a.m. in the few stores
still operated by Jews, the jour-
nalists reported.
All Jewish schools have been
closed down and Jewish news-
papers have been forced to sus-
pend publication. An unestimat-
ed number of Jews have been ar-
rested and sent to Nazi concen-
tration camps on the ground that
they were "pro-Communist," One
report said that 3,800 Jews were
arrested in Riga alone.
A registration of all male Jews
has been completed and it is ex-
pected that the Jews will soon
be sent in special labor battalions
behind the front lines to repair
destroyed bridges and railroads.
As in the other Nazi-occupied
countries, Jews must wear a yel-
low "mogen david" on their street
clothing.
Y. M. H. A. TO INAUGURATE
FALL FORUM GROUP SERIES
GREEK MINISTER
TELLS ENGLAND
QFILLTREATMENT
London (WNS)A report of
Nazi atrocities in Crete, describ-
ing wholesale murders of civi-
lians, including children and old
people, public executions and the
looting and burning of villages,
was forwarded to Prime Minister
Winston Churchill by Premier
Emmanuel Tsoudorous, head of
the exiled Greek Government.
The report was sent to the
Greek Premier by M. S. Dimi-
trakakis, Greek War Minister in
Cairo. Mr. Churchill expressed his
horror at the Nazi brutalities and
voiced the hope that "these ex-
amples of German conduct" re-
ceive the widest publicity.
Part of the report read: "The
Germans looted every single
house and store in towns and
villages, leaving them empty of
every single object. They pro-
ceeded to innumerable murders
of people relying tor safety in the
open country, of children and old
people asleep in their homes, and
to collective, executions following
upon summary parodies of trials.
Condemned people were forced
to dig a common grave before
their executions."
The Greek dossier charged that
three men wounded during exe-
cutions at Kystomadon were
buried while they were still alive
and "their families were forced
to offer dinner to the murderers
of their own husbands, fathers
and brothers and to suffer mock-
ing jests of the tefcing Ger-
mans."
Tuesday evening, October 21,
at 8:30 o'clock, the Y.M.H.A. will
inaugurate the Fall series of its
Adult Forum Group with Frank
Malone, well-known radio com-
mentator, speaking on "How can
this nation use its power to pre-
serve social and economic demo-
cracy here and abroad?"
The forum will be conducted
similar to the Town Hall of the
Air and there will be no admis-
sion.
The Forum Group will meet
the first and third Tuesdays of
every month and Mr. Maurice
Grossman, executive director of
the "Y" announced that promi-
nent speakers have been sched-
uled to take part. The next ses-
sion is scheduled for Tuesday,
November 4th, when Senator
Ernest R. Graham will be the
guest speaker.
NEUROSURCEON

New York (WNS)Hadassah,
the women's Zionist Organization
of America, announced that it
has appointed Dr. Henry Wig-
derson, 35, instructor in surgery
at New York University, to a
newly-created post as head neu-
rosurgeon in the Rothschild-
Hadassah University Hospital
which is part of the group's med-
ical center situated on Mt. Scopus
outside of Jerusalem.
Together with his wife, Doro-
thy Marks Wigderson, 29, who
has collaborated with her hus-
band in neurological research and
holds a master of arts degree in
speech pathology from Columbia
University, Dr. Wigderson will
begin a 22,000 miles air journey
to the Holy Land on October 24.
The trip will be by way of Ha-
waii, Australia, India and Iraq.
The Wigdersons live at 207 East
52nd Street.
In addition to heading the
neuresurgical department in the
hospital, Dr. Wigderson will also
work with Hadassah's war emerg-
ency committee which is cooper-
ating with British and Jewish
medical authorities "to safeguard
the Paletine population from
health hazards which always ac-
company war."
New York (WNS)Charles
A. Lindbergh's charge that the
Roo6eve!t administration, the
British and the Jews were trying
to plunge the United States into
war was warmly endorsed by
Senator Gerald P. Nye at an
America First rally in Port Rich-
mond, S. I. The anti-Semitic
Senator was heckled frequently
by members of the audience.
While backing Lindbergh's
anti-Jewish insinuations, the Sen-
ator solemnly denied that he,
Lindbergh, Senator Burton K.
Wheeler and other America First
leaders were anti-Semitic.
Istanbul (WNS> The "Quisl-
ing" Government of Nazi-held
Greece has announced that all
Jewish civil employees, army of-
ficers and soldiers, ousted from
their posts immediately after the
Nazi occupation, will not be eligi-
ble for government pensions, it
was reported in Greek circles
here.

ANTI JEWISH
MEASURES FOR
POPULACE OF KIEV
Zurich (WNS)Nazi occupying
authorities in Kiev, one of the
major Soviet cities wrested from
the Red Army, have enforced a
series of anti-Jewish decrees, in-
cluding one which makes it com-
pulsory for all Jews over six
years of age to wear a "mogen
david" on their street clothing,
it was learned heie.
The Nazi regulations specify
that all Kiev Jews must wear a
blue-white "mogen david" on
their left arms and a blue-white
badge of "shame" on their should-
ers. Jews are not permitted to
appear in the street from 5 p.m.
to 7 a.m.
Another decree forbids Jews
to stand in the regular "food"
lines around the Kiev shops.
Special hours will be designated
for Jewish housewives to do their
shopping. The meagre food sup-
plies are generally exhausted by
the time the Jews are permitted
to shop.
Meanwhile, reports received
here stated that Jews in Pietro-
kow and Bendzin, Nazi occupied
Poland, have forbidden to appear
in the streets at any time during
the day without special permis-
sion from the police.
The entire Jewish population
of Kielce has been transferred to
the recently completed ghetto in
that city. All Jewish-owned
shops in Kielce have been closed
and moved inside the ghetto.

The views expressed do not necessarily represent the editorial
opinion of The Jewish Floridian
0 0 0
Greater Miami has its Federation
Equal to any in the nation
And though in years is young
Its efforts are not unsung
But in our midst we hear
Rumblings and no deaf ear
We believe should be turned
Or proper overtures be spurned
That Federation may sail the sea
On billowy waves of unity.
The Jewish Welfare Board
Headquarters in New York
might like to know that their
Rabbinical emissary to Puerto
Rico for the Holidays has seen
fit to convert for his conven-
ience, the Railroad Station
checking room into an ark for a
Safer Torah. A local congrega-
tion was kind enough to place
at his disposal the Safer Torah
but he lacked something when
he literally dumped the Torah
in the baggage room, left a mes-
sage where it was and left.
King has alwayo believed that
as individuals we are entitled to
guide our lives and actions with
regard to religious beliefs, tra-
ditions, and laws but Jewish
'organizations representing and
belonging to the community must
live up and adhere to those prin-
cipals which are only proper .
but this past Succas Holiday

fare Bureau and others open for
business as usual Rabbinical
Association take note .
Cemeteries are usually dead
. but the Cemetery Associa-
tion locally purchased new
ground and handed over more
than $10,000 in cash and from
then on has fallen to sleep.
Rumblings throughout the city
makes one take note that there
arc at present two organizations
already grumbling with Federa-
tion What effect this will have
on the '42 campaign and how far
this grumbling will go remains
to be seen.

Washington (WNS)An at-
tempt to inject anti-Semitism into
a House Banking and Currency
Committee hearing on proposed
price control legislation was vig-
orously condemned by Repre-
sentative Robert W. Kean of New
Jersey, a member of the com-
mittee.
A sharp interchange resulted
when Tom Linder, Georgia Com-
missioner of Agriculture, testi-
fied before the committee that
"the only reason so far advanced
for Mr. Henderson to have this
job is that he enjoys the friend-
ship of Baruch, Morgenthau,
Straus, Ginsberg and the Guggen-
heim interests." Mr. Linder re-
ferred to Leon Henderson, price
control administrator.
"When you come in with such
un-American statements," Mr.
Kean retorted indignantly, "as
far as I am concerned your whole
testimony has no weight. Furth-
er, I resent the attempt to arouse
intolerance and antagonism." The
New Jersey Congressman de-
manded an explanation for the
statement about Mr. Henderson's
friends "in which all these men-
tioned belonged to one racia
group."
Mr. Linder, who had said
earlier in his thinly-veiled anti-
Semitic attack that the farmers
he represented were 100 per cent
Americans, offered no explana-
tion.

NEW EDUCATIONAL LEADER
Rabbi Leon Spitz, Jewish Ed-
ucator, author, and journalist has
been appointed director of edu-
cational and club activities at
the Miami Beach Jewish Center.
Rabbi Spitz was ordained at
the Jewish Theological Seminary
of America at New York, and
hold the degree of Master of
Arts from Columbia University.
He was associated with Dr. Sam-
uel Bension, present Rabbi of the
Miami Beach Jewish Center, the
Cleveland, Ohio. Jewish Center.
He has also served as the spirit-
ual leader of the Jewish Com-
munity Centers at New Haven
and Ozone Park, New York City.
He is the author of "The Bible,
Jews, and Judaism in American
Literature", and "Memoirs of a
Camp Rabbi". He has served as
the editor of "The Young Ju-
daean Magazine", the official
youth organ of the Zionist Or-
ganization of America, and di-
rector of the Jewish Club Lead-
ers Training School of New York.
He is editorial contributor to sev-
eral American periodicals and his
articles have appeared in the
B'nai B'rith Magazine, the Amer-
ican Hebrew, and Jewish Stand-
ard.
A very interesting meeting of
the officers of Sholem Lodge took
place last Sunday morning at
the office of our president. Dis-
cussing our project for the year,
it was learned that William L.
Shirer has accepted our invita-
tion to speak under our auspices
on Feb. 16th. Mr. Shirer, whose
book "Berlin Diary" is a best sell-
er and is currently being serial-
ized in the Miami Herald, will
undoubtedly attract a capacity
audience. It is estimated that his
address should net us about $2,-
500. This sum will be donated by
the Lodge to some worthwhile
project. Many suggestions have
been made as to how the money
should be spent and they include
donations to the Crippled Chil-
dren's Hospital, University of
Miami, airconditioning the char-
ity ward at the Jackson Me-
morial Hospital, etc. However
Feb. 16th (Mr. Shirer's only open
date) is a long way off and after
we raise the money we will know
what to do with it.
There has been some talk about
our November social. The en-
tertainment committee had
thought of having a formal dance
at the Hollyood Beach Hotel.
However, the rental is high, our
funds are low, and many other
factors intervene. Incidentally the
student union treasury is deplet-
ed and the auxiliary would like
to put on an affair in November
with which to raise a substan-
tial sum to take care of the stu-
dent union needs. In deference
to the ladies and the needs of
this project we may have to
change our plans. When a final
decision is reached you will be
informed thru the medium of
this column.
Today in district 5 we have a
total membership of 7000. A goal
has been set at 10,000. Naturally
it will take a concerted drive to
gather in so many new members.
Sholem Lodge will take a prom-
inent position in this drive. As
a matter of fact at the meeting
Tuesday night it seemed like we
had already started on a drive.
About twenty or thirty new ap-
plications for membership were
read. The district drive will
honor Brother Sidney J. Stern
of North Carolina, and will also
commemorate the 75th anniver-
sary of the district. Brother
Stern is a gray haired, elderly,
dignified looking man with a
great amount of vitality and all
of it devoted to Bnai Brith. He
was instrumental in the found-
ing of the Hillel Foundation at
the U. of N. C. He has been a
member of the executive com-
mittee of the district for as long
back as I can remember. Un-
questionably he deserves the
honor of this large class being
made for him. Brother Harold
Turk who has been doing good
work in securing members has
been named as chairman of Shol-
em Lodge.
A letter was received by the
Lodge office from a member of
our Lodge who is in dire straits
and who does not desire charity.
He is unemployed and is anxious
to secure a position in order to
make ends meet. When it comes
to charity of coarse there are
agencies to take care of that.
However the officers believe that
we should give some assistance
to our members wherever same
is possible. The way this and
similar cases which may arise
will be handled is as follows: the
occupation of the needy brother
will be mentioned in this column

ITALIANS BERATE COLUMBUS
FOR AMERICAS DISCOVERY
Lisbon (WNS) Christopher
Columbus was taken to ask by
the Italian newspaper Regime
Fascista for founding a "paradise
for Jews" in America. Other
Italian newspapers suggested that
it might have been a better idea
if America had remained undis-
covered, although the Fascist
press agreed that Columbus
couldn't be held responsible for
President Roosevelt and Ameri-
can interventionists.
New York (W N S)Jewish
communities in seventeen coun-
tries have already named dele-
gates to the Inter-American Jew-
ish Conference which will be
held at the Southern Hotel in
Baltimore on November 23rd to
25th, under the auspices of the
American Jewish Congress, it
was announced here by Stephen

one third the entire student body.
This in itself shows the necessi-
ty for Hillel and student union
work.
Marty Milstein says the Lodge
is not athleticly minded and as
athletic chairman r.e wants some-
thing to be done about it. At the
suggestion of our president, a
miniature golf tournament will
be held in the near future. This
should be a lot of fun and will
enable everyone, young and old.
to paticipate. And speaking of
athletics if you desire any parti-
cular tournament whether it be
in tennis, ping pong, basketball
or what have you just get in
touch with Brother Milstein who
will be happy to accommodate
you.
My space is up so will tell you
next week about the marvelous
meeting which took place this
week.
WOULD BAR FOREIGN BORN
HOLDING PUUBLIC OFFICES
Washington (WNS>The na-
tional convention of the Military
Order of the World War, an or-
ganization of commissioned of-
ficers who served in the first
World War. adopted a resolution
demanding legislation forbidding
foreign-born citizens to hold pub-
lic office.
The resolution, sponsored by
Rear Admiral Reginald R. Bolk-
nap. U. S. N. Retired, charged
that many immigrants had
sought United States citizenship
as a cloak to cover up their sub-
versive activities. The resolution
stated also that native-born citi-
zens possessed a better under-
standing of the principles of gov-
ernment as set forth in the Con-
stitution.
Lisbon (W N S)A renewed
drive against Jews throughout
Rumania has resulted in the ar-
rest of hundreds of Jews, ac-
cording to reports received here.
Sixty-five Jews were arrested in
the Jewish quarter of Bucharest
alone.
Police stopped all Jews in the
streets and asked them to show
identification papers.
LOUIS D. BRANDEIS
The obituary columns on Justice Brandeis didn't reflect even
a small fraction of bis activities toward the solution of Jewish
problems Perhaps more than any other Supreme Court
Justice. Brandeis felt that a member of our highest bench should
not involve himself publicly in any action^ that could even re-
motely be classified as political That's why his work for
Zionism, during his tenure of office and even afterwards, was
carried on so privately that few people knew about it But
many are the Zionist labor causes to which he made regular
financial contributions And long were the hours he spent
in his austere study struggling with the tragic issues con-
fronting the Jews in Europe His biographers will not be able
to ignore at least two occasions on which his talks with Presi-
dent Roosevelt had a drastic and favorable effect on the position
of the Jews in Palestine Because of his judicial mind and his
abhorrence of dramatics he preferred the giving of advice to per-
sonal action One point we're sure of is that autographs of
Louis D. Brandeis will never fetch high prices They're not
rare enough ... He answered all his personal mail by hand,
so that there must be hundreds of thousands of his letters ex-
tant throughout the world ... But we doubt that any of these
letters are more than five lines in length Brandeis believed
in brevity .
LOOK AT THIS
The figures on the Czech victims of Nazi executions these
days actually are much larger than those made public And
the proportion of Jews is more than fifty percent ... A plan for
settling a specially selected group of 25,000 refugees in Alaska
is being worked out by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation's
Jesse Jones, we hear That would be giving something of a
break to those newcomers who have been having trouble find-
ing their place here Refugees yet to arrive on our shores, in-
cidentally, are going to run into a lot of new red tape that U. S.
health authorities have had to institute to cope with the un-
sanitary conditions on some refugee steamers and with the re
sultant spread of disease among passengers You'll be glad
to hear, though, that some refugees are progressing quite nicely,
thank you Among them is Henri Bernstein, at this moment
recuperating after an operation and at the same time readying
a play for Broadway production And Kurt Weill, whose
music will soon be heard again from another Broadway stage ...
THIS AND THAT
We wonder whether "Ivan the Terrible," the anonymous
voice that adds sarcastic comments to Berlin broadcasts nowa-
days, is Dr. Friedrich Wolf, the German playwright whose
"Sailors of Catarro" and "Professor Mamlock" delighted New
York theatregoers some years ago ... Dr. Wolf has been living
in Moscow for some years now, and at last reports was active
in radio propaganda directed at Naziland ... A Broadwayite,
incensed at the repeated sinkings by Nazi U-bots near American
shores, asks since when the Atlantic Ocean has been verboten
for boats Another expresses his delight that some of those
Czechs the Nazis thought they had canceled are beginning to
bounce back And a World Series fan was heard to observe
that it's nice to live in a country where the score is No Hitlers,
No Ruins, No Terrors .
ITS FUN TO BE FREE
That was a great show Ben Hecht, Charles MacArthur and
Billy Rose gave the cash customers at the recent Freedom Rally
at Madison Square Garden Probably the highlight of the
evening was the scene in which Bill (Bojangles) Robinson, that
famous non-Aryan, executed one of his best tap-dances on what
purported to be Adolf Hitler's coffin, to the music of "When That
Man is Dead and Gone" Don't tell Hitler, but the U. S. De-
partment of the Interior fell away behind with its mimeograph-
ing a couple of weeks agobecause so many of the employees
in that department didn't report for work on Yom Kippur
ABOUT PEOPLE
Daniel Amstein. the American engineer who made the fa-
mous Burma Road what it is today, might be earning hundreds
of thousands of dollars annually, but prefers to serve his Uncle
Sam for the magnificent sum of a dollar a year .. You've heard
of playwright Sam and Bella Spewack, of course But did
you know that they double as farmers too? ... Up near New
Hope, Pa., they have a farm where they cultivate forty acres,
raising all sorts of fruits and vegetablescarrots, parsnips, lots
of tomatoes, Swiss chard, com, and even figs Robert Mor-
genthau, son of the Secretary of the Treasury and grandson
of the former Ambassador, is the editor of the magazine pub-
lished on the Navy's training ship "Prairie State" Sidney
Skolsky divulges that the reason for all that hair on Edward G.
Robinson's chest is that years ago, when he played in "The
Firebrand" on Broadway, he had to display his chest to the
public view each night, and therefore shaved it frequentlya
process which resulted in that luxurious hirsute crop ... As for
Pa-alette Goddard's back, its gleaming expanse is being used, in
a forthcoming film, in lieu of paper for the recording of military
plans Racetrack fans have probably never heard of a nag
named "Motion Denied." but he constitutes the private stable
of Judge S. Leibowitz, who has become an enthusiastic eques-
rian. .
YOU SHOULD KNOW
Did you know that in medieval times the Jews of Europe
identified the famous Greek physician Galen with the Hebrew
patriarch Rabban Gamaliel of Jabnoh, who also was a medical
authority in his day, but actually antedated Galen by quite a
few years? .

F B I CHALLENGES
HITLER TO CLAIM
VICTORY IN 0. S. I.
Washington (WNS)J. Edgar
Hoover, director of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, challeng-
ed Adolf Hitler "to twist his lying
tongue into a claim that his 'Bat-
tle of America' is proceeding ac-
cording to plan.'" in his address
at the graduation exercises of the
18th session of the National Po-
lice Academy.
Recalling that Hitler had boast-
ed in "Mein Kampi" that "Amer-
ica would be too roft to resist a
fifth-column attack." Mr. Hoover
said: "We have thwarted his
agents and in fact our own agents
used his devices in hoodwinking
the over-publicized efficiency of
the Gestapo."
"American industry, producing
arms and munitions for the foes
of Hitler, has suffered no major
disruption at the hands of sabo-
teurs." the FBI chief said. "Near-
ly 2.000 plants have been sur-
veyed by the FBI for the purpose
of planning safeguards against
such attacks.
"It must be assumed, however,
that Hitler, as his position be-
comes more precarious, will lash
out with even greater fury at
American industry. We must be
prepared to meet this onslaught."

use special branches of the post
office in order to keep them
from coming into contact with
"Aryans." These branches will
be open twice a week from 8 to
9 p.m. Henceforth, mail will be
delivered to Jews in Prague only
on Saturdays. Jews must mark
their letters with a "mogen
david" and with their names. The
decree stipulates that all Jewish
letters must be confiscated at any
time by the police.
The whole Nazi campaign in
Czechoslovakia is designed to
"prove" that the Jews are re-
sponsible for the popular unrest
and increasing acts of sabotage.
Both the Nazi press and radio
are predicting that "within a few
years no nation in the world will
tolerate the Jews in its midst."
Meanwhile, reports received
from Berlin stated that more
than 200 Jews in the Nazi capi-
tal have committed suicide since
the introduction of the order com-
pelling all Jews over six years
of age to wear a large yellow
"mogen david" on their street
clothing.
Faced with an alarming situa-
tion. German Jewish leaders
have addressed several appeals
to the Berlin Jewish community
urging them to have faith and to
retain their courage.
To prevent Jews from conceal-
ing the "mogen davids." Nazi
authorities issued a new regula-
tion specifying that henceforth
Jews must wear their yellow
badges "over their hearts" in-
stead of "on the left side." which
was the original order.
The report added that Herr
vom Rath, father of Ernst vom
Rath. Nazi Embassy employee
who was shot in Paris in 1933
by Herschel Grynszpan. young
Polish Jew, has been placed in
charge of the Nazi bureau which
investigates applications for ex-
emption from the order compell-
ing Jews to wear the "mogen
david."

INFORMATION WANTED
Washington (WNS) The
American citizenship of many
American Jews residing in Pales-
tine and elsewhere, which was
jeopardized when they were un-
able to return to the United States
; by October 14th. was saved by
an emergency bill which was
rushed through the Senate and
sent to the White House a few
hours before the deadline.
Under the terms of the Nation-
ality Act of 1940 all naturalized
tries had to return to the United
Americans living in foreign coun-
States to reaffirm their status
by October 14th. Because of the
war many found themselves un-
able to return to the United
States before the deadline. The
emergency bill protected the U.
S. citizenship of between 3.000
and 5,000 naturalized Americans,
it was explained here by authori-
ties.

FROM THE SWIVEL CHAIR
By WILLIAM I. BOXERMAN, Director
Florida Regional Office
Anti-Defamation League
Lives Will Be Saved
We were discussing the subject
of refugees with a local Jewish
communal leader, who was out-
spoken in his opinion that no
more of Hitler's victims ought to
be admitted ... He repeated
every argument of the alien-
baiters with which we are so
familiar by now refugees
take away jobs become
stooges for Hitler lower the
American standard of living .
contribute nothing constructive
to American life etc. etc.
Were this kind of chatter to
emanate from a Christian Front-
er, we could understand its moti-
vation But coming from one
whose outlook is .supposed to be
that of a broad-minded citizen,
we were quite taken aback .
The strangest thing about the in-
cident was the man's refusal to
back down any in the argument,
even though we gave many con-
crete examples of refugee enter-
prise Merely shows the needs
for internal education among our
own leadership.
The most striking recent bit of
information about the worth of
the newcomers came to us after
this conversation and is worth
noting Word reaches us of
the invention by two German
Jewish scientists of the "Oxford
vaporizer", a revolutionary de-
velopment in the administration
of anesthetics This will be
the means of saving thousands
of lives ... As we understand it,
the new apparatus makes anes-
thesia possible simultaneously
with a mass of wounded soldiers
... It also will render operations
safer.

izes, but at time we do get most

positions of leadership in the
community and do not bother to
acquaint themselves with ele-
mentary facts ... By voicing
their opinions in places where
they are accepted on the false
presumption that leaders know
whereof they speak, they help to
spread erroneous ideas .
Charity may begin at home, as
the old proverb has it, but so
does education And no leader
worthy of the name should pre-
sume to lead others unless he
first leads himself along the path
of the truth.
Caught in the Vortex
The plight of the refugee never
was dramatized so vividly in all
its horror as recently, when a
vessel carrying immigrants from
Spain arrived here ... Its human
cargo related a tale of terror
amidst overcrowding and lack of
the most elementary sanitation
. Comforting is the thought,
though, that once these people
have entered our gates, they are
able to breathe the free air and
go their way unrestrained.
How much more distressing is
the lot of the internee Al-
though he remains in fairly com-
fortable quarters, he is not per-
mitted to live outside the con-
fines of the camp in which he is
detained True, it is not like
the concentration camp in Nazi-
land, but to anyone whose free-
dom of motion is denied, even a
pleasant camp can become a pri-
son.
In the crush of the war news,
the general public doubtless has
forgotten the great roundup con-
ducted in England about a year
and a half ago But for a cer-
tain Jewish internee now in a
Canadian camp and for his sweet-
heart in Miami, this event will
remain stamped indelibly in their
memories Great Britain fear-
ed that among its German refu-
gees there might be Nazi spies
. When the war broke out, all
refugees, Jewish as well as non-
Jewish, were seized and in-
terned ... At first they were
kept in the British Isles Lat-
er, in order to prevent fifth col-
umn activity of the Moseyites,
many of them were sent to Can-
ada, where an untold number
now remain for lack of either
funds or sponsors.
Among these is a young man
whose friend, also a refugee but
now in Miami, has made strenu-
ous efforts to obtain his release
after 18 months of confinement
. All that now stands between
him and freedom, according to
the evidence shown to us by the
Miami young lady, is $200.00 .
His refugee friends here, all of
whom are in poor circumstances,
have scraped together one hun-
dred dollars of the $300.00 de-
posit required by the British gov-
ernment before he can be re-
leased.
We can think of no greater
mitzvah on the New Year than
for some Jewish individual to
advance the requisite two hun-
dred dollars. This money event-
ually will be returned, since it is
only in the nature of a guaran-
tee .. Who will respond?

Tel Aviv (WNS)Thousands of
cheering spectators lined the
streets of Tel Aviv and Haifa
to watch parades of Jewish war
veterans of the first world war
and Jewish soldiers now serving
with the British forces as the
week-long drive for additional
Jewish volunteers came to a
close.
With an estimated 10,000 young
Palestine Jews already serving
with the British Army and Royal
Air Force in the Middle East,
the Jewish Agency hopes to re-
cruit another 10,000 Jewish vol-
unteers for the war against Hit-
lerism.
The week was marked by
scores of public meetings and
rallies at which Palestine Jewish
leaders stressed the need for
Palestine to take a more active
role in the war. Moshe Shertok,
head of the Jewish Agency's
political department, stressed
that recruiting need not inter-
fere with Jewish war efforts "in
the field and factory."
A resolution adopted at a Tel
Aviv mass meeting urged "Is-
rael's youth to join the army of
defense of nation and homeland"
and called upon Jewish commun-
ities throughout the word to
"join us in our battle."

43RD VOLUME OF JEWISH
YEAR BOOK JUST PUBLISHED
Philadelphia, Pa.A compre-
hensive study of events affecting
Jews the world over, The Review
of the Year, comprises the leading
section of the forty-third volume
of the American Jewish Year
Book, just published by The
Jewish Publication Society of
America.
Edited by Harry Schneider-
man, assistant secretary of the
American Jewish Committee and
director of the Library of Jewish
Information, the new volume of
the American Jewish Year Book
gives first place to the Review of
the Year because, the Editor
points out, "events affecting Jews
transcend in importance any
single topic which may have been
the subject of special articles."
Covering over 300 pages and
constituting the largest annual
review of Jewish affairs pub-
lished anywhere in the world, the
Review of the Year is divided
into two parts, the first dealing
with the more immediate situa-
tion in the United States, the sec-
ond examining the plight of
Jewry abroad,trapped between
the war and the ever-widening
ring of Nazi conquest.

M-te^^SM&S*' S FRIDAY. OCTOBER 17, 1941 • •Jewish fk rid kin PAGE SEVEN FROM THE SWIVEL CHAIR By WILLIAM I. BOXERMAN, Director Florida Regional Office Anti-Defamation League Lives Will Be Saved We were discussing the subject of refugees with a local Jewish communal leader, who was outspoken in his opinion that no more of Hitler's victims ought to be admitted ... He repeated every argument of the alienbaiters with which we are so familiar by now refugees take away jobs become stooges for Hitler lower the American standard of living contribute nothing constructive to American life etc. etc. Were this kind of chatter to emanate from a Christian Fronter, we could understand its motivation But coming from one whose outlook is .supposed to be that of a broad-minded citizen, we were quite taken aback The strangest thing about the incident was the man's refusal to back down any in the argument, even though we gave many concrete examples of refugee enterprise Merely shows the needs for internal education among our own leadership. The most striking recent bit of information about the worth of the newcomers came to us after this conversation and is worth noting Word reaches us of the invention by two German Jewish scientists of the "Oxford vaporizer", a revolutionary development in the administration of anesthetics This will be the means of saving thousands of lives ... As we understand it, the new apparatus makes anesthesia possible simultaneously with a mass of wounded soldiers ... It also will render operations safer. This column seldom sermonizes, but at time we do get most irritated with those who assume i^HM OKEA Kosherft YOU PtEPARI YOUR FOODS ITH A pure vegetable shortening.

Rtttock Keifear Condenied Sonpi Five V.rletic. "A Spoonful lnvile* a Platefur positions of leadership in the community and do not bother to acquaint themselves with elementary facts ... By voicing their opinions in places where they are accepted on the false presumption that leaders know whereof they speak, they help to spread erroneous ideas Charity may begin at home, as the old proverb has it, but so does education And no leader worthy of the name should presume to lead others unless he first leads himself along the path of the truth. Caught in the Vortex The plight of the refugee never was dramatized so vividly in all its horror as recently, when a vessel carrying immigrants from Spain arrived here ... Its human cargo related a tale of terror amidst overcrowding and lack of the most elementary sanitation Comforting is the thought, though, that once these people have entered our gates, they are able to breathe the free air and go their way unrestrained. How much more distressing is the lot of the internee Although he remains in fairly comfortable quarters, he is not permitted to live outside the confines of the camp in which he is detained True, it is not like the concentration camp in Naziland, but to anyone whose freedom of motion is denied, even a pleasant camp can become a prison. In the crush of the war news, the general public doubtless has forgotten the great roundup conducted in England about a year and a half ago But for a certain Jewish internee now in a Canadian camp and for his sweetheart in Miami, this event will remain stamped indelibly in their memories Great Britain feared that among its German refugees there might be Nazi spies When the war broke out, all refugees, Jewish as well as nonJewish, were seized and interned ... At first they were kept in the British Isles Later, in order to prevent fifth column activity of the Moseyites, many of them were sent to Canada, where an untold number now remain for lack of either funds or sponsors. Among these is a young man whose friend, also a refugee but now in Miami, has made strenuous efforts to obtain his release after 18 months of confinement All that now stands between him and freedom, according to the evidence shown to us by the Miami young lady, is $200.00 His refugee friends here, all of whom are in poor circumstances, have scraped together one hundred dollars of the $300.00 deposit required by the British government before he can be released. We can think of no greater mitzvah on the New Year than for some Jewish individual to advance the requisite two hundred dollars. This money eventually will be returned, since it is only in the nature of a guarantee .. Who will respond? [ F. A. PETERSON.

With an estimated 10,000 young Palestine Jews already serving with the British Army and Royal Air Force in the Middle East, the Jewish Agency hopes to recruit another 10,000 Jewish volunteers for the war against Hitlerism. The week was marked by scores of public meetings and rallies at which Palestine Jewish leaders stressed the need for Palestine to take a more active role in the war. Moshe Shertok, head of the Jewish Agency's political department, stressed that recruiting need not interfere with Jewish war efforts "in the field and factory." A resolution adopted at a Tel Aviv mass meeting urged "Israel's youth to join the army of defense of nation and homeland" and called upon Jewish communities throughout the word to "join us in our battle." THE Y. M. H. A. NOTES By HARRY SCHWARTZ 43RD VOLUME OF JEWISH YEAR BOOK JUST PUBLISHED Philadelphia, Pa.—A comprehensive study of events affecting Jews the world over, The Review of the Year, comprises the leading section of the forty-third volume of the American Jewish Year Book, just published by The Jewish Publication Society of America. Edited by Harry Schneiderman, assistant secretary of the American Jewish Committee and director of the Library of Jewish Information, the new volume of the American Jewish Year Book gives first place to the Review of the Year because, the Editor points out, "events affecting Jews transcend in importance any single topic which may have been the subject of special articles." Covering over 300 pages and constituting the largest annual review of Jewish affairs published anywhere in the world, the Review of the Year is divided into two parts, the first dealing with the more immediate situation in the United States, the second examining the plight of Jewry abroad,—trapped between the war and the ever-widening ring of Nazi conquest.

S. I. Washington (WNS)—J. Edgar Hoover, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, challenged Adolf Hitler "to twist his lying tongue into a claim that his 'Battle of America' is proceeding according to plan.'" in his address at the graduation exercises of the 18th session of the National Police Academy. Recalling that Hitler had boasted in "Mein Kampi" that "America would be too roft to resist a fifth-column attack." Mr. Hoover said: "We have thwarted his agents and in fact our own agents used his devices in hoodwinking the over-publicized efficiency of the Gestapo." "American industry, producing arms and munitions for the foes of Hitler, has suffered no major disruption at the hands of saboteurs." the FBI chief said. "Nearly 2.000 plants have been surveyed by the FBI for the purpose of planning safeguards against such attacks. "It must be assumed, however, that Hitler, as his position becomes more precarious, will lash out with even greater fury at American industry. We must be prepared to meet this onslaught." CITIZENSHIP OF AMERICAN JEWS IN PALESTINE SAVED MORE EXECUTED AS TERROR REIGN GROWS IN PRAGUE (CONTINUED FROM PAOE 1) use special branches of the post office in order to keep them from coming into contact with "Aryans." These branches will be open twice a week from 8 to 9 p.m. Henceforth, mail will be delivered to Jews in Prague only on Saturdays. Jews must mark their letters with a "mogen david" and with their names. The decree stipulates that all Jewish letters must be confiscated at any time by the police. The whole Nazi campaign in Czechoslovakia is designed to "prove" that the Jews are responsible for the popular unrest and increasing acts of sabotage. Both the Nazi press and radio are predicting that "within a few years no nation in the world will tolerate the Jews in its midst." Meanwhile, reports received from Berlin stated that more than 200 Jews in the Nazi capital have committed suicide since the introduction of the order compelling all Jews over six years of age to wear a large yellow "mogen david" on their street clothing. Faced with an alarming situation. German Jewish leaders have addressed several appeals to the Berlin Jewish community urging them to have faith and to retain their courage. To prevent Jews from concealing the "mogen davids." Nazi authorities issued a new regulation specifying that henceforth Jews must wear their yellow badges "over their hearts" instead of "on the left side." which was the original order. The report added that Herr vom Rath, father of Ernst vom Rath. Nazi Embassy employee who was shot in Paris in 1933 by Herschel Grynszpan. young Polish Jew, has been placed in charge of the Nazi bureau which investigates applications for exemption from the order compelling Jews to wear the "mogen david." BETH DAVID CONGREGATION (CONTINUED FROM PAOE I, ert Krentzman will be in the office to assist any parent who desires information about their children's registration. Voice Culture Those who are interested to study singing under a most competent teacher and director will please contact the office of the Beth David 2-1473. All that is asked is that in exchange for voice training, which will be given free of charge, that in return they join our experienced and trained choir. Sisterhood Bulletin Rabbbi Max Shapiro and Mrs. Isador Fine, president of the Sisterhood, wish to express their sincere gratitude to Mrs. Hyman Sootin. chairman of the Succo. and to those who so willingly gave of their time to help make this Succo the most beautiful and largest in all Miami: Mrs. Sam Dickson.

Mrs. Fine, president, requests all members and friends to attend. Sewing Classes For The American Red Cross The sewing, knitting and crocheting classes for the American Red Cross have been resumed at the Beth David auditorium, and we will be happy to welcome as many ladies as can attend. INFORMATION WANTED Washington (WNS) — The American citizenship of many American Jews residing in Palestine and elsewhere, which was jeopardized when they were unable to return to the United States ; by October 14th. was saved by an emergency bill which was rushed through the Senate and sent to the White House a few hours before the deadline. Under the terms of the Nationality Act of 1940 all naturalized tries had to return to the United Americans living in foreign counStates to reaffirm their status by October 14th. Because of the war many found themselves unable to return to the United States before the deadline. The emergency bill protected the U. S. citizenship of between 3.000 and 5,000 naturalized Americans, it was explained here by authorities. Information is being sought of Murray Baumk^l. who disappeared from his home in the Bronx. N. Y. in September 1935. leaving a wife. Augusta, and minor son. unprovided for and in destitute circumstances and dependent on the bounty of others. Mr. Baumkel. who is believed to be in Florida, was born in New York in 1900. is 5 ft. 9 in. tall, weighed 155 pounds, has black hair, blue eyes, moustache, .nd is believed i to be employed as a shoe sales-1 man—also was employed as a window dresser.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1941 *Jewisfi ncridlian PAGE THREE • m t LT KING'S. .*M&> KOMMENTS The views expressed do not necessarily represent the editorial opinion of The Jewish Floridian 0 0 0 Greater Miami has its Federation Equal to any in the nation And though in years is young Its efforts are not unsung But in our midst we hear Rumblings and no deaf ear We believe should be turned Or proper overtures be spurned That Federation may sail the sea On billowy waves of unity. The Jewish Welfare Board Headquarters in New York might like to know that their Rabbinical emissary to Puerto Rico for the Holidays has seen fit to convert for his convenience, the Railroad Station checking room into an ark for a Safer Torah. A local congregation was kind enough to place at his disposal the Safer Torah but he lacked something when he literally dumped the Torah in the baggage room, left a message where it was and left. King has alwayo believed that as individuals we are entitled to guide our lives and actions with regard to religious beliefs, traditions, and laws but Jewish 'organizations representing and belonging to the community must live up and adhere to those principals which are only proper but this past Succas Holiday found Federation, Jewish Welfare Bureau and others open for business as usual Rabbinical Association take note Cemeteries are usually dead but the Cemetery Association locally purchased new ground and handed over more than $10,000 in cash and from then on has fallen to sleep. Rumblings throughout the city makes one take note that there arc at present two organizations already grumbling with Federation What effect this will have on the '42 campaign and how far this grumbling will go remains to be seen.

President AVENUE Washington (WNS)—An attempt to inject anti-Semitism into a House Banking and Currency Committee hearing on proposed price control legislation was vigorously condemned by Representative Robert W. Kean of New Jersey, a member of the committee. A sharp interchange resulted when Tom Linder, Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture, testified before the committee that "the only reason so far advanced for Mr. Henderson to have this job is that he enjoys the friendship of Baruch, Morgenthau, Straus, Ginsberg and the Guggenheim interests." Mr. Linder referred to Leon Henderson, price control administrator. "When you come in with such un-American statements," Mr. Kean retorted indignantly, "as far as I am concerned your whole testimony has no weight. Further, I resent the attempt to arouse intolerance and antagonism." The New Jersey Congressman demanded an explanation for the statement about Mr. Henderson's friends "in which all these mentioned belonged to one racia group." Mr. Linder, who had said earlier in his thinly-veiled antiSemitic attack that the farmers he represented were 100 per cent Americans, offered no explanation. B'nai B'rith Not es By MILTON FRIEDMAN COMMUNITY CENTER NAMES NEW EDUCATIONAL LEADER Rabbi Leon Spitz, Jewish Educator, author, and journalist has been appointed director of educational and club activities at the Miami Beach Jewish Center. Rabbi Spitz was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America at New York, and hold the degree of Master of Arts from Columbia University. He was associated with Dr. Samuel Bension, present Rabbi of the Miami Beach Jewish Center, the Cleveland, Ohio. Jewish Center. He has also served as the spiritual leader of the Jewish Community Centers at New Haven and Ozone Park, New York City. He is the author of "The Bible, Jews, and Judaism in American Literature", and "Memoirs of a Camp Rabbi". He has served as the editor of "The Young Judaean Magazine", the official youth organ of the Zionist Organization of America, and director of the Jewish Club Leaders Training School of New York. He is editorial contributor to several American periodicals and his articles have appeared in the B'nai B'rith Magazine, the American Hebrew, and Jewish Standard. A very interesting meeting of the officers of Sholem Lodge took place last Sunday morning at the office of our president. Discussing our project for the year, it was learned that William L. Shirer has accepted our invitation to speak under our auspices on Feb. 16th. Mr. Shirer, whose book "Berlin Diary" is a best seller and is currently being serialized in the Miami Herald, will undoubtedly attract a capacity audience. It is estimated that his address should net us about $2,500. This sum will be donated by the Lodge to some worthwhile project. Many suggestions have been made as to how the money should be spent and they include donations to the Crippled Children's Hospital, University of Miami, airconditioning the charity ward at the Jackson Memorial Hospital, etc. However Feb. 16th (Mr. Shirer's only open date) is a long way off and after we raise the money we will know what to do with it. There has been some talk about our November social. The entertainment committee had thought of having a formal dance at the Hollyood Beach Hotel. However, the rental is high, our funds are low, and many other factors intervene. Incidentally the student union treasury is depleted and the auxiliary would like to put on an affair in November with which to raise a substantial sum to take care of the student union needs. In deference to the ladies and the needs of this project we may have to change our plans. When a final decision is reached you will be informed thru the medium of this column. Today in district 5 we have a total membership of 7000. A goal has been set at 10,000. Naturally it will take a concerted drive to gather in so many new members. Sholem Lodge will take a prominent position in this drive. As a matter of fact at the meeting Tuesday night it seemed like we had already started on a drive. About twenty or thirty new applications for membership were read. The district drive will honor Brother Sidney J. Stern of North Carolina, and will also commemorate the 75th anniversary of the district. Brother Stern is a gray haired, elderly, dignified looking man with a great amount of vitality and all of it devoted to Bnai Brith. He was instrumental in the founding of the Hillel Foundation at the U. of N. C. He has been a member of the executive committee of the district for as long back as I can remember. Unquestionably he deserves the honor of this large class being made for him. Brother Harold Turk who has been doing good work in securing members has been named as chairman of Sholem Lodge. A letter was received by the Lodge office from a member of our Lodge who is in dire straits and who does not desire charity. He is unemployed and is anxious to secure a position in order to make ends meet. When it comes to charity of coarse there are agencies to take care of that. However the officers believe that we should give some assistance to our members wherever same is possible. The way this and similar cases which may arise will be handled is as follows: the occupation of the needy brother will be mentioned in this column and if any members of the Lodge can use this brother in their business or know of others who are in need of the special services of this brother they should communicate such information to our office. For instance the brother (CONTINUED ON PAGE 4) ITALIANS BERATE COLUMBUS FOR AMERICAS DISCOVERY Lisbon (WNS) — Christopher Columbus was taken to ask by the Italian newspaper Regime Fascista for founding a "paradise for Jews" in America. Other Italian newspapers suggested that it might have been a better idea if America had remained undiscovered, although the Fascist press agreed that Columbus couldn't be held responsible for President Roosevelt and American interventionists. New York (W N S)—Jewish communities in seventeen countries have already named delegates to the Inter-American Jewish Conference which will be held at the Southern Hotel in Baltimore on November 23rd to 25th, under the auspices of the American Jewish Congress, it was announced here by Stephen S. Wise, president. /T"X. I ***£*! 5 flavor MCI"" ^ %  ve been u e s lo<* l .../* best %  t n m. %  ttvsYen*' protnP 1 de \WetY JSS* PEOPLESs^^^S^COMPAiW Hall JWIH Ft. laudcrlale • Mini lead %

The business session will be followed by a social hour when the board members and their wives will have an opportunity of meeting the new director. Mr. Morris Klass. and his wife. Dr. Erna Klass. Arrangements are in charge of Mrs. Benjamin Bronston. Federation More* Offices Anticipating an active fall and winter season, the Federation has moved to large quarters in Room 1002 of the Congress Building. The new quarters will have facilities for campaign workers and volunteers assisting in preparing for the coming drive. Volunteers Needed A call for volunteers was issued this week by the Federation.

Stanley C. Myers, chairman, reported an excellent attendance in spite of absences from the city of several members. Plans were completed for the moving and equipping of Federation offices in new quarters in the Congress Building. Officers of the 1942 campaign were considered and plans made for a study of the needs of Greater Miami. dents? This constitutes almost one third the entire student body. This in itself shows the necessity for Hillel and student union work. Marty Milstein says the Lodge is not athleticly minded and as athletic chairman r.e wants something to be done about it. At the suggestion of our president, a miniature golf tournament will be held in the near future. This should be a lot of fun and will enable everyone, young and old. to paticipate. And speaking of athletics if you desire any particular tournament whether it be in tennis, ping pong, basketball or what have you just get in touch with Brother Milstein who will be happy to accommodate you. My space is up so will tell you next week about the marvelous meeting which took place this week. WOULD BAR FOREIGN BORN HOLDING PUUBLIC OFFICES Washington (WNS>—The national convention of the Military Order of the World War, an organization of commissioned officers who served in the first World War. adopted a resolution demanding legislation forbidding foreign-born citizens to hold public office. The resolution, sponsored by Rear Admiral Reginald R. Bolknap. U. S. N. Retired, charged that many immigrants had sought United States citizenship as a cloak to cover up their subversive activities. The resolution stated also that native-born citizens possessed a better understanding of the principles of government as set forth in the Constitution. Lisbon (W N S)—A renewed drive against Jews throughout Rumania has resulted in the arrest of hundreds of Jews, according to reports received here. Sixty-five Jews were arrested in the Jewish quarter of Bucharest alone. Police stopped all Jews in the streets and asked them to show identification papers. LOUIS D. BRANDEIS The obituary columns on Justice Brandeis didn't reflect even a small fraction of bis activities toward the solution of Jewish problems Perhaps more than any other Supreme Court Justice. Brandeis felt that a member of our highest bench should • not involve himself publicly in any action^ that could even remotely be classified as political That's why his work for Zionism, during his tenure of office and even afterwards, was carried on so privately that few people knew about it But many are the Zionist labor causes to which he made regular financial contributions And long were the hours he spent in his austere study struggling with the tragic issues confronting the Jews in Europe His biographers will not be able to ignore at least two occasions on which his talks with President Roosevelt had a drastic and favorable effect on the position of the Jews in Palestine Because of his judicial mind and his abhorrence of dramatics he preferred the giving of advice to personal action One point we're sure of is that autographs of Louis D. Brandeis will never fetch high prices They're not rare enough ... He answered all his personal mail by hand, so that there must be hundreds of thousands of his letters extant throughout the world ... But we doubt that any of these letters are more than five lines in length Brandeis believed in brevity LOOK AT THIS The figures on the Czech victims of Nazi executions these days actually are much larger than those made public And the proportion of Jews is more than fifty percent ... A plan for settling a specially selected group of 25,000 refugees in Alaska is being worked out by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation's Jesse Jones, we hear That would be giving something of a break to those newcomers who have been having trouble finding their place here Refugees yet to arrive on our shores, incidentally, are going to run into a lot of new red tape that U. S. health authorities have had to institute to cope with the unsanitary conditions on some refugee steamers and with the re sultant spread of disease among passengers You'll be glad to hear, though, that some refugees are progressing quite nicely, thank you Among them is Henri Bernstein, at this moment recuperating after an operation and at the same time readying a play for Broadway production And Kurt Weill, whose music will soon be heard again from another Broadway stage ... THIS AND THAT We wonder whether "Ivan the Terrible," the anonymous voice that adds sarcastic comments to Berlin broadcasts nowadays, is Dr. Friedrich Wolf, the German playwright whose "Sailors of Catarro" and "Professor Mamlock" delighted New York theatregoers some years ago ... Dr. Wolf has been living in Moscow for some years now, and at last reports was active in radio propaganda directed at Naziland ... A Broadwayite, incensed at the repeated sinkings by Nazi U-bots near American shores, asks since when the Atlantic Ocean has been verboten for boats Another expresses his delight that some of those Czechs the Nazis thought they had canceled are beginning to bounce back And a World Series fan was heard to observe that it's nice to live in a country where the score is No Hitlers, No Ruins, No Terrors ITS FUN TO BE FREE That was a great show Ben Hecht, Charles MacArthur and Billy Rose gave the cash customers at the recent Freedom Rally at Madison Square Garden Probably the highlight of the evening was the scene in which Bill (Bojangles) Robinson, that famous non-Aryan, executed one of his best tap-dances on what purported to be Adolf Hitler's coffin, to the music of "When That Man is Dead and Gone" Don't tell Hitler, but the U. S. Department of the Interior fell away behind with its mimeographing a couple of weeks ago—because so many of the employees in that department didn't report for work on Yom Kippur %  ABOUT PEOPLE Daniel Amstein. the American engineer who made the famous Burma Road what it is today, might be earning hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, but prefers to serve his Uncle Sam for the magnificent sum of a dollar a year .. You've heard of playwright Sam and Bella Spewack, of course But did you know that they double as farmers too? ... Up near New Hope, Pa., they have a farm where they cultivate forty acres, raising all sorts of fruits and vegetables—carrots, parsnips, lots of tomatoes, Swiss chard, com, and even figs Robert Morgenthau, son of the Secretary of the Treasury and grandson of the former Ambassador, is the editor of the magazine published on the Navy's training ship "Prairie State" Sidney Skolsky divulges that the reason for all that hair on Edward G. Robinson's chest is that years ago, when he played in "The Firebrand" on Broadway, he had to display his chest to the public view each night, and therefore shaved it frequently—a process which resulted in that luxurious hirsute crop ... As for Pa-alette Goddard's back, its gleaming expanse is being used, in a forthcoming film, in lieu of paper for the recording of military plans Racetrack fans have probably never heard of a nag named "Motion Denied." but he constitutes the private stable of Judge S. Leibowitz, who has become an enthusiastic equesrian. YOU SHOULD KNOW Did you know that in medieval times the Jews of Europe identified the famous Greek physician Galen with the Hebrew patriarch Rabban Gamaliel of Jabnoh, who also was a medical authority in his day, but actually antedated Galen by quite a few years?

In Prague alone another five Jews weie executed as "economic saboteurs". While Gestapo agents continued their anti-Jewish repressions, the Nazi press in Prague demanded the immediate solution of the "Jewish problem". The press suggested that all Jews physically able to work be sent to special labor camps, while all young and elderly Jews be sent to concentration camps. A new decree compels all Jews to do their shopping only once a week. The hour for Jewish shopping has been set late in the evening so that Jewish housewives find all supplies exhausted when they go to the stores to purchase their food for the week.

Condemned people were forced to dig a common grave before their executions."
