YOUNG CANADIAN RABBI JOINS CANADA AIR FORCE V Toronto (W N S) — Canada's youngest rabbi—23-year-old Rabbi Philip Berger has left his pulpit to serve his country as a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force. The young rabbi told friends that service in the R. C. A. F. would "help me to be a better rabbi when this is all over." The son of Rabbi Meyer Berger, he is spiritual leader of the Achdut Israel Synagogue here. J TAKING PART IN ALL OUT DEFENSE Jewish War Veterans nationally have entered into an elaborate and all-encompassing defense program is the information received here and issued from the national offices through the J. W. V. Commander. Full particulars and details have been sent to all posts and veterans outlining the participation in the defense program which the veterans are urged to undertake. On the local scene, the Jewish War Veterans have responded to the second call of the country at the request of the Civilian Defense Council. Under the direction of J. W. Baros, commander of the Frieda Markowitz Post and at the request of Sheriff D. C. Coleman and Deputy Sheriff Bill Conderman two flying squads were organized to cooperate. Conderman met with the post at the last meeting to explain the purpose and duties of the squads. The men are to be deputized and their duties will consist of policing and patrol work in addition to other necessary operations.

ANTI-JEWISH EXHIBIT WILL BE OPENED IN TOKIO JAN. 5 London, (WNS)— The Japanese government will strive for closer spiritual unity with Nazi Germany by opening in Tokio on Jan. 5 an anti-Jewish exhibit, similar to one on display last year in Germany and other Nazioccupied countries, the German radio reported. The anti-Semitic exhibit will be opened by prominent Japanese officials. While unable to emulate Germany in all of that country's antiJewish legislation because of the scarcity of Jews in Japan, Japanese officials are concentrating on the 20.000 European Jewish refugees in Shanghai and the Russian Jewish emigres in Harbin. The Nazi radio reported that the systematic arrests of Jewish refugees in Shanghai was continuing. The Nazi radio explained that the arrests of Jewish refugees in Shanghai was made by Japanese police on the basis of information supplied by Nazi Gestapo agents who had been active in Shanghai before the outbreak of hostilities between Japan and the United States and Britain. JEWS SUFFER IN RETREAT OF NAZIS Y YOUNG REFUGEE JOINS U. S. ARMY TO FIGHT HITLERISM Detroit (WNS)—Ernst Samson. 22-year-old refugee whose father died fighting for Germany in the first world war and whose mother and step-fa.ther were forced to flee the Reich, has joined the United States army to fight Hitlerism. The new recruit, who said that a brother is now fighting with the British army in Libya, was accepted by the army after he complied with regulations. His step-father conducted a shoe business in Dortmund. Istanbul (WNS)—Nazi troops in Rostev killed more than 600 Jews before abandoning that key city to the advancing Red army, according to reports relayed to Moscow by Russian guerilla fighters. These reports said that retreating Nazi troops were making Russian Jews pay heavily for the great Nazi defeat. Accounts of the Nazi rout appearing in the Russian and Turkish press picture Russian Jews as suffering bitterly in all territory deserted by the Nazis or still held by the German army. The Nazi retreat, which is continuing on the whole 1,500-mile Russian front despite exhortations to his soldiers to hold the territory no matter what the sacrifice by Fuehrer Adolf Hitler, has cost thousands of Jews their lives. Before preparing to abandon a Russian town. Nazi troops round up all of the young Jews in the area and take them along as slave laborers. Most of the older Jews are lined up in the squares and shot. The Jews are used to dig trenches and to repair damaged equipment. In Russian cities where the Nazis are still entrenched, the Jews are forced to give up their homes to Nazi officers and soldiers. According to the Moscow press thousands of poorly clad Jews were found frozen to death by advance Red army units. The Jews had been thrown out of their homes and forced to seek shelter in the forests. The Dade County Defense Council announces this week that the major branches of its activities were complete, or nearly so. The airplane spotters, filter center workers, civilian pilots' organization, and the Florida Defense Force have been turned over to the army. Hospitals and emergency first aid centers are being set up and equipped, under Dr. Lanier, who is head of the Medical Division, with the aid of the Dade County Medical Association and the Red Cross. About 3000 air raid wardens have volunteered, and are being trained. Special fire fighting courses are being given, and plans are under discussion for the purchase of additional equipment. Communications, power, fuel, housing, evacuation, food supply, drugs, medicines, emergency road and bridge repair, and all other such important elements of war planning have been organized to meet the new emergency. On a Sunday evening—possibly the 11th of January—this area will have its first hour-long block-out practice, probably beginning at 10:10 in the evening. All individuals will be responsible for the complete blacking out of their own houses, business properties, etc. Uniform ordinances throughout Dade County will provide penalties for failure to cooperate in blackout practice. Air raid wardens responsible for the instruction of citizens in blackout technique, and for the enforcement of blackout regulations, have been appointed. In a few days a booklet will be distributed by various agencies, such as motion picture theatres, on the subject of blackout and air raid precautions. The Defense Council has set up commodity allocation boards, (CONTINUED ON PAGE 3) NAZIS PLAN TO KILL OFF EUROPE'S YOUNGER JEWS London (WNS)—Driven into a frenzy by the continued retreat of the Nazi armies in Russia, Hitler has ordered his military commanders to organize special divisions of young Jews recruited from all the Nazi-occupied countries for service in the so-called "suicide" zones, it was reported in Polish circles here. These reports, confirmed this week by the Polish radio, stated that Hitler planned to exterminate Europe's younger Jews by sending these special divisions into those areas on the Russian front which are too "hot" for Nazi troops. Unwilling to risk his own men in those spots, the Nazi Fuehrer has decided to send the Jews into the "suicide" zones. HUNGARY AGREES TO GIVE NAZIS 60,000 UKRAINE JEWS Istanbul (WNS) — Following conferences between the German and Hungarian Ministeries of Agriculture, the Hungarian government has agreed to place 60,000 Jews at the disposal of the Nazi authorities in the Ukraine in 1942.

FRIDAY. JANUARY 2. 1942 Jewisti fkrfafinun PAGE THREE KING'S.. KOMMENTS The views expressed do not necessarily represent the editorial opinion of The Jewish Floridian He may have the brains But he doesn't take the pains To see those about him Nor consider their whim 'Tis not a one-man job Nor one for the mob Still there are ways in these days To let the lay have their say Give them a part in what's dear to their heart Right or wrong let them sing their song In the New Year ring—smart 'twould be says King Well done if not better would be the task And in its glory could he bask. 1ST OF PLANS OP DEFENSE COUNCIL Though elections are ix months off one of the youth groups hears talk about the officers who will head the organisation. Not surprisingly, several hats have been cast in the ring each of whom will have a definite faction opposing them. King forsees the old party lines tightening and the same strong fight for control. King prognosticates," despite the six months yet to come. King was asked by one of his readers to classify his remarks with sub titles as "this remark or these remarks do not pertain to lawyers ... to Rabbis etc. Soon he'll want names. The division of honors among those who must have them becomes rather a difficult task and the appeasement policy that is necessary to cover up is even a more difficult one and King sees trouble on the horizon with one that will take more than a team captain to satisfy. King passes on to you ... A Borne commentator, discussing Italy's alliance with Japan commented that this did not violate Aryan principles as both parties were "pure" races. He explained that "the Japanese are merely yellow Aryans." And we're at a loss to understand why the Japs tried to save face when they had two of them all the time Among the new war songs reported by Variety, was "When Those Little Yellow Bellies Meet the Cohens and the Kelleys." TROPICAL TOPICAL PATTER The Governor's Plate will be the final feature of the winter session at Tropical Park. This event, a new one on the Gables schedule, is set for decision on January 13th, the last day of the meeting. It will carry a handsome trophy award in addition to the purse money. The distance of this race will be six furlongs. Grooms are sharing in the good fortune of the Gables Racing Association, each man receiving a bonus of $10 for every winner he leads into the paddock. It is the first time such a practice has been attempted in Florida; in fact there are few associations through the country so liberal. SOILS L. C. MORRIS TOP DRESSING SOILS PAVING Streets, Driveways.

S2.00 Six Months, $1.00 MIAMI. FLORIDA. FRIDAY, JANUARY 2, 1942 TEVETH 13. 5702 VOLUME 15 NUMBER 1 Our War Responsibilities Swift and dramatic have been the events which have shifted the nerve center of the struggle for world freedom to the United States. America's entry into the war has heightened our sense of kinship with the rest of the world, at the same time that it has evoked in all Americans a flaming resolve to fight, give and sacrifice without limit to safeguard and preserve the democratic way of life. The responsibility of American Jewry in this war crisis is clearly defined in outlines of bold headline type. We must, of course, fulfill our share of the war effort in every sphere of national endeavor with intense devotion and singleness of purpose. But we must not overlook nor ignore the words of admonition pronounced by President Roosevelt, that the battle for democracy is being carried on on a far-flunu, worldwide front and that this situation intertwines our struggle and our hopes of victory with the fate of men everywhere seeking to resist and overcome Nazi aggression and attack. In this sense the Greater Miami Jewish Federation has planned its forthcoming campaign which will officially start January 18th. It has planned this all out effort to raise sufficient funds by achieving its goal, enabling its participating agencies to carry out their necessary programs here and elsewhere. In this sense as one of the phases of the campaign, the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees, Overseas Needs and Palestine takes on the aspect of an instrument to provide urgently needed aid to the front of world-humanity which is battling the front of world-brutality. Both President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill have given public recognition to the immensely significant role which those who have opposed Nazism are playing behind the front. Indeed, Churchill has characterized them as brave soldiers in the fight for democracy. It is in this light that American Jewry must evaluate the programs and needs of the Joint Distribution Committee, the United Palestine Appeal and the National Refugees Service, the three agencies which constitute the unified drive of the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees, Overseas needs and Palestine. To those who on mere superficial examination question the need of continued overseas relief work, we wish to address the following statement made very recently by Joseph E. Davies, chairman of the President's Committee on War Relief Agencies and former Ambassador to Soviet Russia: "It is inconceivable to me that anyone can question the necessity and desirability of continuing the Joint Distribution Committee's life-giving work so long as that work conforms to the policies of our Government." The J.D.C. with its 27 years of overseas relief experience dating back to the first World War is already operating under war conditions with the full consent of the American Government. Nor can anyone question the value of giving extended aid through the United Palestine Appeal to the stalwart Jewish community of 550,000 in Palestine, which now represents democracy's greatest bastion of defense in the Middle East. Our Government has given increasing evidence of its reliance on Palestine in the battle against Hitler, and greater assistance to the Jewish homeland in the crucial year of 1942 constitutes a direct contribution to the defense of our own country. Furthermore, the continuance of the major aspects of the peacetime program of the National Refugee Service in this country and the successful fulfillment by this agency of warimposed tasks represent a primary consideration for the American Jewish community. Over and above its full participation in the war effort of our nation, American Jewry must not only carry on, but enlarge its scope of activity in behalf of oppressed Jews overseas, refugee in Latin and South America, the courageous Jews of Palestine and the Jewish refugees in our own midst. Only in that way can we carry out the spirit of our country's determination to man every front in this struggle and to preserve the faith and hope of those who stand by our side, wherever they may be. B'NAI B'RITH NOTES By Milton A. Friedman By BURNETT ROTH Sholem Lodge President Guest Columnist It is with pleasure that I address this message to the members of Sholem Lodge and to those persons who are not members who may find occasion to read of the activities of B'nai B'rith. The task which confronts B'nai B'rith locally, throughout the state, and nationally, is the task of all Americans. As always, however, the searchlight of criticism will be directed more against the Jewish people than any other group in the country, and it is for that reason that, not only from a patriotic standpoint, but from a religious standpoint, our energies must be devoted wholeheartedly to the Victory Program. The immediate task before theLodge is that of the selection of chairmen of the various committees which carry on the work of B'nai B'rith. I have, therefore, circularized our membership, urging all persons to indicate their choice of the committee or committees on which they would like to serve. If you have not already notified the office cf your preference, please do so lm-! mediately. Every committee of the Lodge serves a necessary purpose, lead-! ing to our ultimate goal, and each member should anxiously wish to serve the Lodge, not only by increasing our membership rolls, but on one of our standing \ committees. The other important task im-1 mediately confronting our Lodge is that of active participation of every member in the Defense Council program. All of us cannot serve the military forces, but without a single exception every man in B'nai B'rith and every woman, who is connected either with the Auxiliary or the family of a member, can and should and must serve his country now. Let no one think that the task is one to be shouldered by others. The preservation of our Democratic principles requires personal sacrifices on the part of every person in his community. When the Defense Council calls for 500 women, or 1,000 men, there is no reason why B'nai B'rith en masse, should not actively offer its entire membership. I am, therefore, preparing a program whereby groups of ten men and ten women will be prganized among our membership and through our membership, enlisting as units with the Dade County Defense Council. I urge every member to call our office, 3-0751, and volunteer his services so that his name will be properly enrolled with the authorities for such duties as may fall upon all Americans. Let this year find Victory for America, and Sholem for our people. U.S. JEWS MUSI JOIN P0S1London (WNS)—Stressing that America's formal entry into the war against the Axis powers will help solve many of Europe's post-war problems, Prof. Selig Brodetsky, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, called upon the Jews of America to join with British Jews in formulating a program for Jews to be presented to the eventual peace program. America's contribution to the eventual victory over the Axis powers, Prof. Brodetsky told the Board, will enable her to exert great influenece at the post-war peace conference. He said that the United States entry into the war against aggression had brought even closer the Jewish communities of Great Britain and America. He urged the Jews of both nations to work out a single policy which will be supported by the Jewish communities of both Britain and the United States. Prof. Brodetsky emphasized that the relationship between British and American Jewry has been fundamentally changed, since the United States is no longer a nonbelligerent ally, but a full-fledged partner in the war. Meanwhile, the Jewish Agencies offer to establish a Jewish Army in Palestine received renewed impetus this week. -TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHEREiPMidfy Confidential By PHINEAS J. BIRON WAR BULLETINS The statements of support to the Administration issued by the American Jewish Congress, the Zionist Organization, the Bnai Brith and other Jewish bodies are considered to be in rather poor taste in Washington ... An important public official there told us that the loyalty of these organizations had been taken for granted, as had their true American willingness to serve in this war ... It therefore was stupid—from a public relations point of view at least—for them to single themselves out and to make protestations of loyalty normally made only by foreign groups ... As this is written it is difficult to predict whether Prime Minister Churchill, during his stay at Washington, will succeed in avoiding a delegation in behalf of the Committee for a Jewish Army Knowing the perseverance of the Palestinian boys attending to the executive matters of that committee, we're willing to bet that Churchill will be handed a blazing document about the need for a Jewish Army. WAR ECHOES First section of New York from which civilians are to be evacuated if and when, will be Sea Gate, the exclusive section of Coney Island that has for years been the favorite summer haunt of thousands of metropolitan Jews The collaboration that the Nazis are giving to France has been very concisely expressed by a Frenchman who prefers to remain anonymous. "Collaboration," he says, "is an arrangement whereby the Germans take our watches, but still deign to tell us the correct time" Every defense bond you buy, reminds Winchell, means one more bomb against those bums And every defense stamp, they say on Broadway, helps your Uncle Sam stamp on those heels. THAT RUSSIAN RUSH Napoleon's ghost, say those who know about such things, is chuckling quietly to himself in the Elysian Fields ... He claims that it was himself, as a Dybbuk, who made Hitler march into Russia The Nazi warriors, returning home from the Eastern front, are getting a wry laugh out of the posters Gabby Goebbels has put up proclaiming that no German shall go hungry or be cold this winter Hitler's current nervous breakdown, we hear, is being treated by one of Germany's most famous Jewish physicians, whose wife and children are being held as hostages until the doctor succeeds in unaddling Adolf. All we can say is that the medico and his family have our sincere sympathy Over the tortuous war-time grapevine comes the story that the Axis debacles in Russia and Libya were the result of a single act of sabotage: Somebody switched the labels on the lubricating oil supply, with the result that the winter oil was sent to the mechanized forces in Libya while the summer oil gummed up the Nazi works in Russia. WHAT'S COOKING The professional prophets haven't got around to making public their prognoses for the new year, so we can't pass on their ideas of what this infant 1942 will grow itno ... But in movieland they're still swearing by Old Man Nostradamus, and are preparing a new short that will show him predicting the attack on the Hawaiis—which weren't discovered until over a century after his death ...

A survey of all Jewish professional men in the city has already been made and every member will be contacted during the drive by members of the Professional division. Some out. standing gifts have already been received by members of the profession. Special Gifts Workers Begin Drive Spurred on by the dynamic message of M.

A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS! and may the year 1942 bring with it a huge V • • • f r America and her Allies. The Y H H. A. under the most able directorship of its Executive Director. Maurice Grossman, has offered the members and their friends many outstanding social, cultural and athletic affairs during the year, but to my estimation, the finest work the organization has undertaken has been National Defense work. Service Men's Dance Success The greatest service that can be rendered to the men in uniform is to keep up their moral.. The Y. M. and Y. W. H. A. have tried to do that from time to time. Last Saturday night a dance [or service men was held at tin "\ which attracted over one hundred fifty nun in uniform. At the conclusion, the men voted it the best affair of its kind that they attended in this city. Greal credit is due to the committee headed by Mrs. Florence Hacker who was assisted by the following: Mrs. Ida Optncr. Mrs. Monte Selig. Miss Bess Spanner. Mrs. Pearl Reisman and Mrs. Mildred Rubenstein. These ladies, together with the executive director, prior to the dance, en listed the aid of many girls who came and acted as dancing partners for the boys. They also contacted various ships and naval and army bases which sent men | to the dance. The next affair for service men will be held at the "Y" on Saturday night. January 10. "Y" in Defense Mrs. Florence Hacker, chnirman of the Y. W. H. A. Defense committee, is planning to have sewing for the Red Cross at the j "Y." In order to do so, many [electric sewing machines are needed. People who want to do something for defense and who have electric sewing machines are asked to loan these machines to the "Y" so that this project may start real soon. Please contact Mr. Grossman at the "Y" or bring your machine there. Boy Scouts Boy Scouts are playing a great part in national defense. They are now preparing for any and all emergencies that may arise. One of their projects presently is teaching the youngsters how to put up tnits in a hurry. It is very thrilling and interesting to watch them work. Congratulations to Henry Axeman. ;>ur Scout Master, and his entire troop.

In those words did he urge his fellow Zionists onward, at a time of lesser danger than the present. If we had his clarity of vision, we could now look out upon the horizon with satisfaction and joy.

ANTI-JEWISH EXHIBIT WILL
BE OPENED IN TOKIO JAN. 5
London, (WNS) The Japanese
government will strive for clos-
er spiritual unity with Nazi Ger-
many by opening in Tokio on
Jan. 5 an anti-Jewish exhibit,
similar to one on display last
year in Germany and other Nazi-
occupied countries, the German
radio reported. The anti-Semitic
exhibit will be opened by prom-
inent Japanese officials.
While unable to emulate Ger-
many in all of that country's anti-
Jewish legislation because of the
scarcity of Jews in Japan, Jap-
anese officials are concentrating
on the 20.000 European Jewish
refugees in Shanghai and the
Russian Jewish emigres in Har-
bin. The Nazi radio reported
that the systematic arrests of
Jewish refugees in Shanghai was
continuing.
The Nazi radio explained that
the arrests of Jewish refugees in
Shanghai was made by Japanese
police on the basis of information
supplied by Nazi Gestapo agents
who had been active in Shang-
hai before the outbreak of hostil-
ities between Japan and the
United States and Britain.
JEWS SUFFER IN
RETREAT OF NAZIS
Y
YOUNG REFUGEE JOINS U. S.
ARMY TO FIGHT HITLERISM
Detroit (WNS)Ernst Samson.
22-year-old refugee whose father
died fighting for Germany in the
first world war and whose moth-
er and step-fa.ther were forced to
flee the Reich, has joined the
United States army to fight Hit-
lerism.
The new recruit, who said that
a brother is now fighting with
the British army in Libya, was
accepted by the army after he
complied with regulations. His
step-father conducted a shoe
business in Dortmund.
Istanbul (WNS)Nazi troops
in Rostev killed more than 600
Jews before abandoning that key
city to the advancing Red army,
according to reports relayed to
Moscow by Russian guerilla
fighters. These reports said that
retreating Nazi troops were mak-
ing Russian Jews pay heavily
for the great Nazi defeat.
Accounts of the Nazi rout ap-
pearing in the Russian and Turk-
ish press picture Russian Jews
as suffering bitterly in all terri-
tory deserted by the Nazis or
still held by the German army.
The Nazi retreat, which is con-
tinuing on the whole 1,500-mile
Russian front despite exhorta-
tions to his soldiers to hold the
territory no matter what the sac-
rifice by Fuehrer Adolf Hitler,
has cost thousands of Jews their
lives.
Before preparing to abandon a
Russian town. Nazi troops round
up all of the young Jews in the
area and take them along as
slave laborers. Most of the old-
er Jews are lined up in the
squares and shot. The Jews are
used to dig trenches and to re-
pair damaged equipment.
In Russian cities where the
Nazis are still entrenched, the
Jews are forced to give up their
homes to Nazi officers and sold-
iers. According to the Moscow
press thousands of poorly clad
Jews were found frozen to death
by advance Red army units. The
Jews had been thrown out of
their homes and forced to seek
shelter in the forests.
The Dade County Defense
Council announces this week that
the major branches of its activi-
ties were complete, or nearly so.
The airplane spotters, filter cen-
ter workers, civilian pilots' or-
ganization, and the Florida De-
fense Force have been turned ov-
er to the army. Hospitals and
emergency first aid centers are
being set up and equipped, un-
der Dr. Lanier, who is head of
the Medical Division, with the
aid of the Dade County Medical
Association and the Red Cross.
About 3000 air raid wardens have
volunteered, and are being
trained. Special fire fighting
courses are being given, and
plans are under discussion for
the purchase of additional equip-
ment. Communications, power,
fuel, housing, evacuation, food
supply, drugs, medicines, emer-
gency road and bridge repair,
and all other such important ele-
ments of war planning have been
organized to meet the new emer-
gency.
On a Sunday eveningpossibly
the 11th of Januarythis area
will have its first hour-long
block-out practice, probably be-
ginning at 10:10 in the evening.
All individuals will be respon-
sible for the complete blacking
out of their own houses, business
properties, etc. Uniform ordin-
ances throughout Dade County
will provide penalties for failure
to cooperate in blackout practice.
Air raid wardens responsible for
the instruction of citizens in
blackout technique, and for the
enforcement of blackout regula-
tions, have been appointed. In a
few days a booklet will be dis-
tributed by various agencies, such
as motion picture theatres, on

NAZIS PLAN TO KILL OFF
EUROPE'S YOUNGER JEWS
London (WNS)Driven into a
frenzy by the continued retreat
of the Nazi armies in Russia,
Hitler has ordered his military
commanders to organize special
divisions of young Jews recruited
from all the Nazi-occupied coun-
tries for service in the so-called
"suicide" zones, it was reported
in Polish circles here.
These reports, confirmed this
week by the Polish radio, stated
that Hitler planned to extermin-
ate Europe's younger Jews by
sending these special divisions
into those areas on the Russian
front which are too "hot" for
Nazi troops. Unwilling to risk
his own men in those spots, the
Nazi Fuehrer has decided to send
the Jews into the "suicide" zones.
HUNGARY AGREES TO GIVE
NAZIS 60,000 UKRAINE JEWS
Istanbul (WNS) Following

ernment has agreed to place 60,-
000 Jews at the disposal of the

KOMMENTS

The views expressed do not necessarily represent the editorial
opinion of The Jewish Floridian
He may have the brains
But he doesn't take the pains
To see those about him
Nor consider their whim
'Tis not a one-man job
Nor one for the mob
Still there are ways in these days
To let the lay have their say
Give them a part in what's dear to their heart
Right or wrong let them sing their song
In the New Year ringsmart 'twould be says King
Well done if not better would be the task
And in its glory could he bask.
1ST OF PLANS OP
DEFENSE COUNCIL
Though elections are ix
months off one of the youth
groups hears talk about the of-
ficers who will head the organ-
isation. Not surprisingly, sev-
eral hats have been cast in the
ring each of whom will have
a definite faction opposing
them. King forsees the old
party lines tightening and the
same strong fight for control.
King prognosticates," despite
the six months yet to come.
King was asked by one of
his readers to classify his re-
marks with sub titles as "this
remark or these remarks do
not pertain to lawyers ... to
Rabbis etc. Soon he'll
want names.
The division of honors among
those who must have them be-
comes rather a difficult task and
the appeasement policy that is
necessary to cover up is even
a more difficult one and King
sees trouble on the horizon with
one that will take more than a
team captain to satisfy.
King passes on to you ... A
Borne commentator, discussing
Italy's alliance with Japan com-
mented that this did not violate
Aryan principles as both parties
were "pure" races. He explained
that "the Japanese are merely
yellow Aryans." And we're at a
loss to understand why the Japs
tried to save face when they had
two of them all the time .
Among the new war songs re-
ported by Variety, was "When
Those Little Yellow Bellies Meet
the Cohens and the Kelleys." ,
TROPICAL TOPICAL PATTER
The Governor's Plate will be
the final feature of the winter
session at Tropical Park. This
event, a new one on the Gables
schedule, is set for decision on
January 13th, the last day of the
meeting. It will carry a hand-
some trophy award in addition to
the purse money. The distance of
this race will be six furlongs.
Grooms are sharing in the good
fortune of the Gables Racing
Association, each man receiving
a bonus of $10 for every winner
he leads into the paddock. It is
the first time such a practice has
been attempted in Florida; in

through the country so liberal.

which will provide certificates
for the purchase of automobile

hicles will be allowed new tires
under this strict ruling. Tires,
for example, will be provided
for farm machinery, but not for
farmers' private automobiles.
There will be no new tires for
taxicabsor even for defense
workers. As long as the Japan-
ese are in control of major com-
munication lines in the Pacific,
the United States will face this
appalling rubber famine.
Long range county plans
for public health improve-
ment are being studied night and
day. A county-wide campaign
for local consumption of produce
grown in Dade County will be
launched in the middle of Janu-
ary. At the present time, all
growers are being urged to con-
tribute their unsalable surpluses
to the Home Economics Divis-
ion of the Defense Council. These
surpluses will be canned and giv-
en away to the most needy peo-
ple in the area. Thus, all pro-
duce contributed by the growers
will in no way compete with pro-
ducts sold in the market. Collec-
tion of such products will be
made at the markets.
People throughout the nation
are being urged by the offices of
Civilian Defense to save all
waste paper. A system for col-
lecting such paper is being set
up. Collection, however, is only
half of the saving. The main
economy can be effected in the
use of paper, especially in drug,
grocery and other stores, where
non-essential wrapping wastes
hundreds of thousands of tons
annually.
The call for volunteers for civil
defense work is ceaseless. Among
those needed, all of whom are re-
quested to report in person to
the Volunteer Bureau in the In-
Graham Building, are women to
work in the Air Filter Center,
husky men with good automobiles
for the "Motorized Minute Men."
Home Economics teachers to
teach canning, nurses' aides, or-
derlies, air raid wardens, typists
and file clerks. Constant new re-
quests arc being broadcast daily
by the radio stations.
The Council is deeply gratified
by the patriotism, loyalty and
sacrificial spirit of the people of
this area.

Rabble Rousers
Jewish concern about the ne-
gro problem has been increasing
during the past few years .
Especially has this been true in
large centers such as New York
and Detroit There negroes
move into areas of deterioration
formerly occupied by Jews and
still owned by them Result
resentment of the colored man
against his intolerable conditions
is directed against the Jewish
landlord or storekeeper in his
area.
Forgetting the benefactions of
a Jew like Julius Rosenwald to
their race, negroes have fallen
easy prey to the wiles of the
Nazi propagandists preaching
hatred of the Jews And we
see the paradox of a group per-
secuted and maligned, itself low-
est on the racial scale, turning
its venom upon another minor-
ity.
So grave a problem has this
become that several outstanding
leaders in the negro group have
undertaken a campaign against
this Nazi-inspired Jew-hatred by
negroes ... Of late, progressive
negro editors have crusaded
against it in their columns.
Miami has not been immune
from this Hitlerite propaganda.
Within the last two weeks re-
ports have come to us of agitation
by a negro from Detroit This
man has been rabble-rousing on
the street in a negro neighbor-
hood Through appeals to pre-
judice, he has blamed the plight
of the negro upon the Jew .
Mouthing almost verbati*n some
of the material from anti-Semitic
publications, he has sought to
stir up violence.
Fortunately through an appeal
lo the law. the agitator's activi-
ties have been stopped, at least
temporarily However, need-
less to say, once the seed of
hale has been sown, it is difficult
to determine where it has fallen
upon fertile soil.
Some of My Best Friends
"Some of my best friends are
librarians" But when a Jew
tried to donate to a local library
a book refuting the false Proto-
cols of Zion, the librarian refused
to accept it She told him that
since the Protocols themselves
were not on the shelves, the ex-
posure of the falsehood likewise
should not appear.
Naturally, the Jew did not
press the point Rather spec-
ious thinking, though, on the
part of the librarian! For ev-
en where anti-Semitic propagan-
da does not appear in the library
(and many attempts have been
made to place it there) might it
not occur to the librarian that
readers who see such forgeries as
the Protocols of Zion would feel
inclined to visit the library in
search of the truth?
Strange creatures these libra-
rians!
Not Worthy of the Name
What to do with Jews not wor-
thy of the name? ... An old
problem Solved in days gone
by by writing them out of the
Jewish community Today,
sad to say, that no longer is pos-
sible.
First, there is that Jewish pro-
prietor of a "gentile only" hotel
on the Beach who hides under a
gentile management (we say
"gentile" and not "Christian" ad-
visedly) Then there is that
large Jewish-owned department
store which violates the business
ethics of Lincoln Road and
causes unfair generalizations to
be made about all Jewish mer-
chants Oh, yes, let us not
forget that Jewish business man
in the southwest section who
wakes his neighbors at one
o'clock in the morning with his
incessant quarreling and then
tells them that what he does is
his own business.
As we said on a previous oc-
casion, "Oh. for the days of the
Cherem when community either
made Jews good Jews or cast
them forth from the fold."
The Fifth Column in Education
We await eagerly the outcome
of an investigation into the activ-
ities of a certain public school
teacher who has been fond of
justifying publicly Hitler's treat-
ment of the Jews Sometimes
he has made his remarks in the
hearing of Jewish pupils who re-
frained from taking public issue.
Now if never before Jews must
learn to answer.
Don't let a single lie about
Jews be uttered in your presence
without making an intelligent re-
ply, assuming, naturally, that
you are familiar with the facts.
Of course, if you have no facts
it is much better to wait until
you are in possession of them
rather than to make a weak and
useless reply.

Our War Responsibilities
Swift and dramatic have been the events
which have shifted the nerve center of the
struggle for world freedom to the United States.
America's entry into the war has heightened
our sense of kinship with the rest of the world,
at the same time that it has evoked in all
Americans a flaming resolve to fight, give and
sacrifice without limit to safeguard and pre-
serve the democratic way of life. The respon-
sibility of American Jewry in this war crisis is
clearly defined in outlines of bold headline
type. We must, of course, fulfill our share
of the war effort in every sphere of national en-
deavor with intense devotion and singleness
of purpose. But we must not overlook nor
ignore the words of admonition pronounced by
President Roosevelt, that the battle for demo-
cracy is being carried on on a far-flunu, world-
wide front and that this situation intertwines
our struggle and our hopes of victory with the
fate of men everywhere seeking to resist and
overcome Nazi aggression and attack.
In this sense the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation has planned its forthcoming cam-
paign which will officially start January 18th.
It has planned this all out effort to raise suf-
ficient funds by achieving its goal, enabling
its participating agencies to carry out their
necessary programs here and elsewhere.
In this sense as one of the phases of the
campaign, the United Jewish Appeal for Refu-
gees, Overseas Needs and Palestine takes on
the aspect of an instrument to provide urgently
needed aid to the front of world-humanity
which is battling the front of world-brutality.
Both President Roosevelt and Prime Minister
Churchill have given public recognition to the
immensely significant role which those who
have opposed Nazism are playing behind the
front. Indeed, Churchill has characterized
them as brave soldiers in the fight for demo-
cracy.
It is in this light that American Jewry must
evaluate the programs and needs of the Joint
Distribution Committee, the United Palestine
Appeal and the National Refugees Service,
the three agencies which constitute the unified
drive of the United Jewish Appeal for Refu-
gees, Overseas needs and Palestine. To those
who on mere superficial examination question
the need of continued overseas relief work, we
wish to address the following statement made
very recently by Joseph E. Davies, chairman
of the President's Committee on War Relief
Agencies and former Ambassador to Soviet
Russia: "It is inconceivable to me that anyone
can question the necessity and desirability of
continuing the Joint Distribution Committee's
life-giving work so long as that work conforms
to the policies of our Government." The J.D.C.
with its 27 years of overseas relief experience
dating back to the first World War is already
operating under war conditions with the full
consent of the American Government.
Nor can anyone question the value of giving
extended aid through the United Palestine Ap-
peal to the stalwart Jewish community of 550,-
000 in Palestine, which now represents demo-
cracy's greatest bastion of defense in the
Middle East. Our Government has given in-
creasing evidence of its reliance on Palestine
in the battle against Hitler, and greater assist-
ance to the Jewish homeland in the crucial
year of 1942 constitutes a direct contribution
to the defense of our own country.
Furthermore, the continuance of the major
aspects of the peacetime program of the Na-
tional Refugee Service in this country and the
successful fulfillment by this agency of war-
imposed tasks represent a primary considera-
tion for the American Jewish community. Over
and above its full participation in the war ef-
fort of our nation, American Jewry must not
only carry on, but enlarge its scope of activ-
ity in behalf of oppressed Jews overseas, refu-
gee in Latin and South America, the courage-
ous Jews of Palestine and the Jewish refugees
in our own midst. Only in that way can we
carry out the spirit of our country's determina-
tion to man every front in this struggle and to
preserve the faith and hope of those who stand
by our side, wherever they may be.
B'NAI B'RITH
NOTES
By Milton A. Friedman
By BURNETT ROTH
Sholem Lodge President
Guest Columnist
It is with pleasure that I ad-
dress this message to the mem-
bers of Sholem Lodge and to
those persons who are not mem-
bers who may find occasion to
read of the activities of B'nai
B'rith.
The task which confronts B'nai
B'rith locally, throughout the
state, and nationally, is the task
of all Americans. As always,
however, the searchlight of crit-
icism will be directed more
against the Jewish people than
any other group in the country,
and it is for that reason that,
not only from a patriotic stand-
point, but from a religious stand-
point, our energies must be de-
voted wholeheartedly to the Vic-
tory Program.
The immediate task before the-
Lodge is that of the selection of
chairmen of the various commit-
tees which carry on the work
of B'nai B'rith. I have, there-
fore, circularized our member-
ship, urging all persons to indi-
cate their choice of the commit-
tee or committees on which they
would like to serve. If you have
not already notified the office cf
your preference, please do so lm-!
mediately.
Every committee of the Lodge
serves a necessary purpose, lead-!
ing to our ultimate goal, and
each member should anxiously
wish to serve the Lodge, not only
by increasing our membership
rolls, but on one of our standing \
committees.
The other important task im-1
mediately confronting our Lodge
is that of active participation of
every member in the Defense
Council program. All of us can-
not serve the military forces,
but without a single exception
every man in B'nai B'rith and
every woman, who is connected
either with the Auxiliary or the
family of a member, can and
should and must serve his coun-
try now.
Let no one think that the task
is one to be shouldered by oth-
ers. The preservation of our
Democratic principles requires
personal sacrifices on the part of
every person in his community.
When the Defense Council calls
for 500 women, or 1,000 men,
there is no reason why B'nai
B'rith en masse, should not act-
ively offer its entire membership.
I am, therefore, preparing a
program whereby groups of ten
men and ten women will be pr-
ganized among our membership
and through our membership, en-
listing as units with the Dade
County Defense Council.
I urge every member to call
our office, 3-0751, and volunteer
his services so that his name will
be properly enrolled with the au-
thorities for such duties as may
fall upon all Americans.
Let this year find Victory for
America, and Sholem for our
people.
U.S.
JEWS MUSI JOIN
P0S1-
London (WNS)Stressing that
America's formal entry into the
war against the Axis powers will
help solve many of Europe's
post-war problems, Prof. Selig
Brodetsky, president of the
Board of Deputies of British
Jews, called upon the Jews of
America to join with British
Jews in formulating a program
for Jews to be presented to the
eventual peace program.
America's contribution to the
eventual victory over the Axis
powers, Prof. Brodetsky told the
Board, will enable her to exert
great influenece at the post-war
peace conference. He said that
the United States entry into the
war against aggression had
brought even closer the Jewish
communities of Great Britain and
America.
He urged the Jews of both
nations to work out a single pol-
icy which will be supported by
the Jewish communities of both
Britain and the United States.
Prof. Brodetsky emphasized that
the relationship between British
and American Jewry has been
fundamentally changed, since the
United States is no longer a non-
belligerent ally, but a full-fledged
partner in the war.
Meanwhile, the Jewish Agen-
cies offer to establish a Jewish
Army in Palestine received re-
newed impetus this week.

WAR BULLETINS
The statements of support to the Administration issued by
the American Jewish Congress, the Zionist Organization, the
Bnai Brith and other Jewish bodies are considered to be in
rather poor taste in Washington ... An important public offi-
cial there told us that the loyalty of these organizations had
been taken for granted, as had their true American willingness
to serve in this war ... It therefore was stupidfrom a public
relations point of view at leastfor them to single themselves
out and to make protestations of loyalty normally made only
by foreign groups ... As this is written it is difficult to predict
whether Prime Minister Churchill, during his stay at Washing-
ton, will succeed in avoiding a delegation in behalf of the Com-
mittee for a Jewish Army Knowing the perseverance of the
Palestinian boys attending to the executive matters of that
committee, we're willing to bet that Churchill will be handed a
blazing document about the need for a Jewish Army.
WAR ECHOES
First section of New York from which civilians are to be
evacuated if and when, will be Sea Gate, the exclusive section
of Coney Island that has for years been the favorite summer
haunt of thousands of metropolitan Jews The collaboration
that the Nazis are giving to France has been very concisely
expressed by a Frenchman who prefers to remain anonymous.
"Collaboration," he says, "is an arrangement whereby the
Germans take our watches, but still deign to tell us the correct
time" Every defense bond you buy, reminds Winchell,
means one more bomb against those bums And every de-
fense stamp, they say on Broadway, helps your Uncle Sam
stamp on those heels.
THAT RUSSIAN RUSH
Napoleon's ghost, say those who know about such things, is
chuckling quietly to himself in the Elysian Fields ... He claims
that it was himself, as a Dybbuk, who made Hitler march into
Russia The Nazi warriors, returning home from the East-
ern front, are getting a wry laugh out of the posters Gabby
Goebbels has put up proclaiming that no German shall go hun-
gry or be cold this winter Hitler's current nervous break-
down, we hear, is being treated by one of Germany's most
famous Jewish physicians, whose wife and children are being
held as hostages until the doctor succeeds in unaddling Adolf.
All we can say is that the medico and his family have our sin-
cere sympathy Over the tortuous war-time grapevine comes
the story that the Axis debacles in Russia and Libya were the
result of a single act of sabotage: Somebody switched the
labels on the lubricating oil supply, with the result that the
winter oil was sent to the mechanized forces in Libya while the
summer oil gummed up the Nazi works in Russia.
WHAT'S COOKING
The professional prophets haven't got around to making
public their prognoses for the new year, so we can't pass on
their ideas of what this infant 1942 will grow itno ... But in
movieland they're still swearing by Old Man Nostradamus,
and are preparing a new short that will show him predicting
the attack on the Hawaiiswhich weren't discovered until over
a century after his death ... In case you're interested, we'll tell
you that our own private soothsayer forecasts great rejoicing
m the Spring of 1942, but adds that the latter part of the year
will bring exile to many Jews Our personal advice to you
for the new year is to keep your nose to the grindstonebe-
cause we have the Axis to grind into dust.

"This is going to stop." Blood-
worth said, "and if there are any
more complaints. I am going to
investigate and find out who is
responsible."
He called attention to "strict
orders" issued January 10th.

Lee. These orders, which Blood-
worth pointed out had "never
been canceled," provide that
"whenever any citizen can rea-

himself, he should be permitted

case of doubt, the police officer

The stirring monument to George Washington
and the two men important in the financing of
the American War for Independence, Robert
Morris and Haym Salomon, is shown above, in
readiness at the site in Chicago for impressive
dedication as part of the national observance of
Bill of Rights Day, December 15. Symbolizing
that peoples of all races and creeds participated
in the founding of the United States and recall-
ing the importance in 1776, as it is today, of
civilian cooperation in time of war, the monu-
ment now stands at Wacker drive, Wabash
avenue and State street, one of Chicago's fore-
most downtown intersections.
The inscription reads: "The Government of
the United States which gives to bigotry no
sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires
only that they who live under its protection
should demean themselves as good citizens in
giving it on all occasions their effectual support.
President George Washington 1790."
On the back side of the base there is a bronze
placque showing peoples of all races and creeds
grouped around the Goddess of Liberty.
Designed by the late Lorado Taft and com-
pleted by Leonard Crunelle, the monument,
which cost $50,000, was presented to the City of
Chicago by the Patriotic Foundation of Chicago.

problems facing Palestine as a
result of the war.
Following the conference, Mr.
Bullitt, accompanied by Lowell
C. Pinkerton, American consul
in Jerusalem, and Prof. Israel
Kligler, of the science faculty of
the Hebrew University, visited
the University's national library

oratories.

the accomplishments of the Heb-
rew University and of the medi-
cal laboratories, telling his hosts
that the progress made matched
that of any other institution in
the world. The Hadassah medi-
cal laboratories are named after
Dr. Nathan Ratnoff, head of the
Beth Israel Hospital, New York.
Mr. Bullitt appeared equally

Jewish National Workers Al-
liance inaugurated a member-
ship campaign locally asking
members of the Jewish faith,
men and women from the ages
of 18 to 60 to join. This is part
of a national campaign to in-
crease the membership of the
organization from 20,000 to 30,-
000 during 1942.
The Alliance in a statement
made by its head stated that
recognizing the need of mutual
help in cases of illness, emer-
gencies and death, they have
made this feasible through their
membership plan in addition to
the strengthening of the national
and social consciousness of the
Jewish masses, their environment
and education. As part of their
program they will take an active
part in the complete unification
of the Jewish people, aiding in
the building of Palestine as a
national homeland. In further-
ing the necessity of being good
American citizens, they will j
strive to aid conditions among \
the labor movement.

New York (WNS)A cable re-
ceived here from Jerusalem re-
ported that two new Jewish set-
tlements had been established
as part of the program of the
Jewish Agency for Palestine to
spur food production for the lo-
cal population and for the Brit-
ish and allied armies garrisoned
in Palestine. Housing refugees
from Germany. Poland and Yu-
goslavia, the colonies, located in
southernmost Palestine, were fi-
nanced by the United Palestine
Appeal.
Last Wednesday 137 young re-
fugees occupied 1,500 acres of the
new colony Manof.. on the site
of ancient Gath. where Goliath
the Philistine was born and to
which David fled from Saul. On
the same day. 132 other refugees
steeled on 2.500 acres in the new
colony of Habone near Punama.
Both new settlements are in the
direction of the Egyptian fron-
tier.
In making public the cable-
gram from Dr. Arthur Hantke.
director of the Palestine Founda-
tion Fund in Jerusalem. Dr. Abba
Hillel Silver, national chairman
of the United Palestine Appeal,
said: "In the establishment of
these two new settlements on
Wednesday. December 23rd, an
additional contribution is being
made by Palesine Jews to the
strengthening of the country's
capacity to serve the war effort.
The Jewish Agency for Pales-
tine, supported with the funds of
the United Palestine Appeal, has
achieved remarkable successes in
increasing food production by 40
percent since the beginning of
the war. This saves valuable

planes." ,

lead of Germany and a number

A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU
AND YOURS!
and may the year 1942 bring
with it a huge V fr
America and her Allies.
The Y H H. A. under the most
able directorship of its Execu-
tive Director. Maurice Grossman,
has offered the members and
their friends many outstanding
social, cultural and athletic af-
fairs during the year, but to my
estimation, the finest work the
organization has undertaken has
been National Defense work.
Service Men's Dance Success
The greatest service that can
be rendered to the men in uni-
form is to keep up their moral..
The Y. M. and Y. W. H. A. have
tried to do that from time to
time.
Last Saturday night a dance [or
service men was held at tin "\
which attracted over one hund-
red fifty nun in uniform. At
the conclusion, the men voted it
the best affair of its kind that
they attended in this city. Greal
credit is due to the committee
headed by Mrs. Florence Hacker
who was assisted by the follow-
ing: Mrs. Ida Optncr. Mrs.
Monte Selig. Miss Bess Spanner.
Mrs. Pearl Reisman and Mrs.
Mildred Rubenstein. These lad-
ies, together with the executive
director, prior to the dance, en
listed the aid of many girls who
came and acted as dancing part-
ners for the boys. They also
contacted various ships and naval
and army bases which sent men
| to the dance.
The next affair for service men
' will be held at the "Y" on Sat-
urday night. January 10.
"Y" in Defense
Mrs. Florence Hacker, chnir-
man of the Y. W. H. A. Defense
committee, is planning to have
sewing for the Red Cross at the
j "Y." In order to do so, many
[electric sewing machines are
needed. People who want to do
something for defense and who
have electric sewing machines
are asked to loan these machines
to the "Y" so that this project
may start real soon. Please con-
tact Mr. Grossman at the "Y" or
bring your machine there.
Boy Scouts
Boy Scouts are playing a great
part in national defense. They
are now preparing for any and
all emergencies that may arise.
One of their projects presently is
teaching the youngsters how to
put up tnits in a hurry. It is
very thrilling and interesting to
watch them work. Congratula-
tions to Henry Axeman. ;>ur
Scout Master, and his entire
troop.

As we come to the end of the
year 1941. a year in which hu-
manity suffered such terrible
wounds, and the plight of the
future of the Jewish people is
in our minds, the words of the
late Justice Louis D. Brandeis
ring in our ears: "Organize, or-
ganize, organizeuntil every Jew
stands up and is countedcount-
ed with usor proves himself
wittingly or unwittingly, of the
few who are against their own
people." In those words did he
urge his fellow Zionists onward,
at a time of lesser danger than
the present. If we had his clar-
ity of vision, we could now look
out upon the horizon with satis-
faction and joy. The year 1942
is ushered in. and it is well for
us to correct the msitakes of the
past if it is to be a progressive
one in our lives. What greater
thing is there for us to do. then,
but to preach and practice that
I "united we stand, divided we
| fall. It took a "Pearl Harbor" to
unite us Americans. Shall we
Jews always wait until cats-
trophe befalls us before rising
to action?
The Zionist Organization of
America has fittingly dedicated
the sixty day period from De-
cember 1, 1941 to February 1,
1942, for a special membership
enrollment drive in tribute to the
late Justice Brandeis. One of
his last acts before passing from
