Jewish War Veterans nation-
ally have entered into an elabor-
ate and all-encompassing defense
program is the information re-
ceived 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

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
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.

up all of the young Jews in the
area and take them along as

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-

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.

He may have the brains

To see those about him

1ST OF PLANS OP
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
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

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

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

for the purchase of automobile
tires. Only the most essential ve-
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,

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
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-
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

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 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-
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.

Sholem Lodge President
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
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-
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-!
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 \
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-
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
JEWS MUSI JOIN
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
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.
-TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE-
,_________________By PHINEAS J. BIRON---------------------------
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.
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.
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.

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

Jewish National Workers Al-

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 Y H H. A. under the most
able directorship of its Execu-

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
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

The next affair for service men

Mrs. Florence Hacker, chnir-

are asked to loan these machines
to the "Y" so that this project
