MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 1942

FIRST BLACKOUT
FOR DUDE COUNTY
THIS SUNDAY EVE
Dade County's first practice
blackout is scheduled for Sun-
day night, January 11th from
10:15 to 10:45 p. m., thirty min-
utes, all arrangements having
been perfected by the Dade
County Defense Council, and it
was emphasized that every per-
son is expected to observe the
blackout instructions: there shall
be no exceptions.
In order that the instructions
may receive wide circulation, the
council has had them incorpor-
ated in a bulletin, a four-page
newspaper layout, and general
[ distribution is being made.
In a practice blackout, or an
[actual air raid, the main require-
iment is that the people remain
'calm, and observe the basic rules
| incorporated in the bulletin.
There are two reasons for
blackouts. First, they hide
i bomb targets. Second, they con-
Iceal whole areas so that they
[cannot be used as guides to en-
lemy bombers. In the first in-
[ stance an enemy pilot over a
Jblacked-out city is unable to
[identify the important targets in
[the city. In the second instance,
Ian enemy pilot flying over a
[blacked-out landscape can find
no illuminated place by which
to set his course toward his main
Objective.
Blackouts are, therefore, de-
igned to prevent death and des-
iction.
The air raid alarm blackout
Signals will reach the people by
varnings over the radio. All
street lights will be turned on
nd off three times, at two-second
itervals. Factory and other
Steam whistles will blow a series
of blasts of about five seconds
leach, three seconds apart. Sirens
[on police cars and fire engines
fwill sound blasts at the same in-
terval.
The "all clear" signals are:
[Announcements will be made by
[radio. Street lights will be
[turned on. Steady two-minute
|blasts of whistles. Steady two-
linute blasts of sirens.
ANTI-TYPHUS SERUMS ARE
ASKED FOR POLE GHETTOS
London (WNS) Dr. Ignacy
Schwartzbart, Jewish member
of the Polish National Council,
has appealed to Argentine Jewry
to send anti-typhus serums to
combat the dreaded spotted ty-
phus epidemics now raging in
the overcrowded, unsanitary Po-
lish ghettos, it was disclosed here.
Dr. Schwartzbart directed his
appeal to the Federation of Po-
lish Jews in Argentina because
that country is not at war with
Nazi Germany and supplies can
still be shipped from Argentina
to Nazi-occupied Poland. Since
the United States' entry into the
war, American Jews cannot send
supplies into any part of Nazi-
held Europe.

PHILIP WYLIE TO
SPEAK AT YIH1
DEFENSE RALLY
Philip Wylie, noted author,
will be the guest speaker at a
mass defense rally under the
sponsorship of the Y. M. H. A.
next Wednesday evening at the
Y clubrooms.
Mr. Wylie, a visitor to Miami
during the boom, several years
ago became a permanent resi-
dent here, building a home on
CLAIM JEWS SPREADING
TYPHUS GERMS IN POLAND
Istanbul (WNS) Following
ie lead taken by Nazi Germany,
le Food Ministry of the Hungar-
ian Government this week an-1
lounced that food rations for |
lews will be reduced by 50 per
[cent, it was reported here. Hith-
lerto, the Jews in Germany re-
Iceived the same rations as non-
IJews.
In effect, me Hungarian de-
cree means slow starvation for
the 800,000 Jews in Hungary since
[the food rations received in the
[past were hardly adequate. At
[the start of the war Germany in-
roduced the system whereby
lews receive one-half the amount
ttf food allotted to "Aryans."
Zurich (WNS)Reports pub-
lished in the Swiss press stated
that 52 Jews in Berlin were
killed and 74, including 24 wo-
men, were severly injured in
British air raids in 1941 when
they were denied access to air
raid shelters.
Jews in Germany are forbid-
den to enter the regular raid
shelters but must take refuge
during raids in shelters built by
the Berlin Jewish community.
The Jewish raid victims were a
considerable distance away from
the Jewish shelters when the
air raids occurred and were trap-
ped in the streets.
Meanwhile, the Nazi press this
week unleashed a campaign of
hate against the Jews of Fin-
land. Acting under Nazi order;
the Helsinki press recently
warned the Jews to leave the
country or suffer the consequen-
ces of a Nazi-styled anti-Jewish
program. Many Finnish Jews
left immediately for Switzerland.
The Nazi press is now berating
the Finnish Government for per-
mitting the Jews to leave the
country with their possessions.
The German newspapers are de-
manding that Finland strip the
Jews of all their money and mat-
erial possessions before permit-
ting them to emigrate.
Stockholm (WNS)The Jews
are deliberately "spreading the
spotted typhus epidemic in Na-
zi-occupied Poland and the Bal-
tic countries in order to weaken
the Nazi army and pave the
way for a "Jewish-democratic"
victory, according to Germany's
most vicious anti-Semite, Julius
Streicher.
Germany's No. 1 anti-Semite
raised the charge in his newspa-
per, "Der Stuermer," which is
customarily devoted to perno-
graphy of the vilest sort and to
pogrom-inciting anti-Jewish at-
tacks. Streicher issued a special
edition of "Der Stuermer," to
"prove" to the German people
that the Jews were deliberately
spreading the epidemics.

DIES IN RUSSIA JULY 8TH
THE DATE OF THE FIRST
BLACKOUT PRACTICE
FOR DADE COUNTY IS
SUNDAY. JANUARY 11.
THE TIME WILL BE
10:15 TO 10:45 P. M.
London (WNS) Chief Rabbi
Moses Schorr of Warsaw, one of
the most heroic figures in the
Nazi occupation of Poland, died
in Russia on July 8th, 1941, three
days before the signing of the
Russo- Polish pact which would
have released him from Soviet
imprisonment, according to an
official report of the Polish Am-1
bassador in Russia.
News of Prof. Schoor's death, |
relayed here from Kuibyshev,
Russia, cast a pall of gloom over |
Polish Jews now in England.
The Polish Government-in-exile
requested Dr. Ignacy Schwartz-
bart, its sole Jewish member, to
express its profound regrets to
world Jewry at the tragic pass-
ing of the Chief Rabbi.
Born in Premysl in 1874, Prof.
Schorr achieved wide recognition
from both Jews and non-Jews.
He taught in the University of
Lwow from 1910 to 1926.
Di Lido Island. His stories have
been read by millions and his
regular contributions to the Sat-
urday Evening Post have brought
Miami a tremendous amount of
publicity. Mr. Wylie is at pres-
ent Public Relations Head of the
Dade County Defense Council
and is devoting his entire time
to this work during the present
emergency.
"As a loyal American, it is
everyone's duty to find out what
he or she can do for our coun-
try," said Maurice Grossman, ex-
ecutive director of the Y, in
speaking of this affair. "Time
and again we have heard people
say, 'What can I do for our gov-
ernment?' We want to give
everyone an opportunity to do
something for national defense
and we have been extremely for-
tunate in procuring as able a man
as Mr. Wylie who will explain
and tell what each man, woman
and child can do to help. I
urge your attendance."
Joseph I. Davis will be chair-
man. The evening will include
a musical program featuring
Cantor nd Mrs. Herman Mar-
bein, tenor and coloratura sop-
rano formerly of the Chicago
Civic Opera Company. They
will render vocal solos and duets
and will be accompanied by Miss
Eleanor Edelstein.
JEWS MAKE UP 25 PER CENT
OF POLE RUSSIAN ARMY
HELP TO NATION
Washington, D. C:Creation
of a War Service Department of
B'nai B'rith to coordinate its
existing war service projects in
seven major fields and to serve
as the instrumentality for the
initiation and execution of ad-
ditional activities in an expand-
! ing program of* service to the
nation was announced here to-
day by Henry Monsky, president
of B'nai B'rith, oldest and largest
national Jewish service and
fraternal organization. At the
same time it was announced that
over 5,000 members of B'nai
B'rith and of Aleph Zadik Aleph,
its youth organization, are serv-
ing in the armed forces of the
United States. Membership dues
for them have been waived for
the duration of the war.
The seven fields in which B'nai
B'rith war service is already in
operation are civilian defense,
Red Cross cooperation, sponsor-
ship of and participation in com-
munity meetings and rallies on
war service, assistance to gov-
ernment agencies, collaboration
in Army and Navy welfare
work, stimulation of the purchase
and sale of defense bonds and
stamps and continued contribu-
tions to war relief agencies.
With thousands of B'nai B'rith
men, women and young people
already enlisted for civilian de-
fense duties, the 900 B'nai B'rith
units and the 480 chapters of the
B'nai B'rith youth organization
are engaged in a nationwide ef-
fort to enroll all of their mem-
bers in some civilian defense
job, Mr. Monsky declared. Many
B'nai B'rith members are also
serving in Home Guard or State
Militia units, he added.
NAZIS SEIZE JEWS CLOTHING
FOR SHIPMENT TO ARMIES
London (WNS) Jewish of-
ficers and soldiers make up 25
percent of the Polish Army in
Russia, according to authorita-
tive Polish circles here. Polish
Jews flocked to the colors when
it was announced a few months
ago that the Soviet Government
had agreed to the organization of
a Polish Army on Russian soil.
Polish Premier Sikorski has
notified the Polish government-
in exile here that he has ap-
pointed many new Jewish chap-
lains to serve with the Army.
Istanbul (WNS) Nazi officials
in all German-occupied countries
have been ordered to strip the
Jewish population of all clothing
for immediate shipment to the
retreating German Army in Rus-
sia, it was reported here.
In Slovakia, Jews were ordered
to surrender all their clothing
with the exception of one pair of
shoes, three sets of underwear
and one coat. Jewish women
are forced to yield their clothing
too, particularly coats and shoes
heavy enough for army use.
JEWRY OF
NEAR READINESS
FOR GREAT DRIVE
With ten days remaining to
the opening of the Federation
Drive campaign leaders are ex-
pressing confidence that the Goal
of $159,902 will be oversub-
scribed. Enthusiasm is gathering
force and the army of workers
are preparing for the all out ef-
fort of reaching every Miami
Jewish Resident in the campaign.
The war has called for a doubling
of effort on the part of all work-
ers. Many who have pledged
their efforts to the Drive are
at the same time assuming De-
fense duties in Filter Work and
in other Civilian Defense activi-
ties. The ten days of the 1942
Campaign will be the most inten-
sive in the history of the Miami
Jewish community. Every Civic
minded Jewish resident will be
assuming the task assigned to
him in completing the solicita-
tion of all prospects within the
time allotted for this work.
Every synagogue in Miami and
Miami Beach is preparing plans
for the observance of Campaign
Sabbath next Friday and Satur-
day, January 16th and 17th.
Speakers will address all congre-
gations and the services will be
devoted to the work of the
Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
tion, and the 46 agencies sup-
ported by its program. The Rab-
bis of the city are sponsoring
this observance and are de-
voting their sermons to this
topic.
Captains of the Men's and Wo-
men's division of the 1942 Fed-
era campaign are holding team
meetings in their homes to stimu-
late their workers and to instruct
the workers in the fine points
of securing the subscriptions ne-
cessary to make the drive a suc-
cess. The first meeting was held
by Mrs. Hyman Kaplan, captain
of team number 42 in her home.
Her team met jointly with team
number 41. under the captaincy
of Mrs. Herman Wepman. The
teams were addressed by Mrs.

VOLUME 15 NUMBER 2
My Dear Fellow American Jew
Last night you had a nightmare. You saw
yourself in a Nazi concentration camp,
strapped down to a stone slab. Towering
above you, lash in hand, was a Storm Trooper,
his lips drawn back in a mad snarl, and his
eyes inflamed with one desireto see your
life drain from your body under the flailing
blows of the lash. Then, just as the whip was
about to descend, a voice out of nowhere
asked: "How much will you give to be spared."
And you replied: "All I have."
At this point you awoke, with perspiration
running cold on your forehead. You groped
about, to make sure that you were still lying
on a Beautyrest mattress, that you were still
covered by a warm blanket. You strained
your ears to catch the sounds of the night, and
you heard the drowsy whistle of the freight
train at a crossing. You heard a belated auto-
mobile purring by along the street outside.
But most of all you heard the easy, peaceful
breathing of your wife at your side.
Then what did you do? Did you relax
against the pillow and mutter to yourself, half
in resentment, half in disgust: "Dammit, I've
been reading the papers too much" ... ? Or did
you pause, before falling off to sleep again,
to sigh with compassion: "Those concentra-
tion camps must be awful." ?
Or did you, by chance, remain awake for
a long, long time, perhaps until daybreak,
your eyes wide open. "This is no nightmare
. It's real Hundreds of thousands have
gone through it Thank God I am in Ameri-
ca."
Yes, my friend, you should thank God that
you are in Americabut do not depend entire-
ly upon Him to keep America free, for He has
no patience with them who ask for, and re-
ceive, meat in the desert, but who shirk the
responsibilities placed upon them by their
destiny.
The 1942 campaign of the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation to be held between January
18th and 28th, has as its goal the sum of
SI59,902. It is your responsibility to contribute
liberally to the Campaign. For among the 46
causes represented, are not only the agencies
for relief abroad, not only national and local
agencies for education, recreation, case work,
etc., but also the national civic-protetive agen-
cies whose task is the defense of the Jews here
in America.
I take it that you observe the Passover
holiday. Do you recall the very first passage
in The Haggadah, which we recite at the Seder
table? It begins with the words: "This is the
bread of affliction that our parents ate in the
land of Egypt ," and it concludes: "This
year we are enslaved; next year we shall be
freemen."
My dear friend! If American democracy
means anything to you, if the light of freedom
is to endure for your children, then be prepared
to eat the bread of affliction with gladness, so
that this year and the years thereafter, we may
still be free men.
"How much will you give to be spared?"
Consider now and consider well!
Let the measure of your contribution to the
1942 Campaign be your answer!
(Acknowledgment to the Cleveland Jewish
Observer, from which part of this letter was
taken.)
In Memorium
The news of the passing of Pinchas Ruten-
berg in Jerusalem and Chief Rabbi Moses
Schorr of Warsaw came as a great blow to
world Jewry. Both were of heroic stature,
giving unstintingly and selflessly of themselves
and dedicating their lives to the best interests
of their people.
Pinchas Rutenberg, one of the most colorful
figures in Jewish affairs who achieved fame as
the man who gave electricity to Palestine, died
in Jerusalem after a long illness and was bur-
ied "in a modest place among modest Jews"
according to his own expressed with. His con-
tributions were numberless, his strength was
a rock for his people. Long a leader of the
Yishub, he played an important role in com-
batting the White Paper.
The death of Chief Rabbi Moses Schorr
ended a five months search for one of the most
heroic figures to come out of the Nazi oppres-
sion of Poland. The circumstances surround-
ing his end symbolized in essence the basic
ideals to which he devoted his life.
During the Nazi invasion of Poland arrange-
ments had been made for him to flee to France.
His answer was that "as long as I am the head
of Polish Jewry, I cannot leave Polish soil on
which millions of Jews remain." And so he
gave his life to Israel. In no small measure
will the memory of his courage, devotion and
effort provide hope and comfort and inspira-
tion to those for whom he lived and died.

Rumormongers are herewith invited to crawl back into the
woodwork, and democratic-minded aliens are assured that they
have nothing to fear from the American government, which will
continue to treat them exactly as it does its own citizensnot-
withstanding the irresponsible gossipers who are trying to
panic refugees from Central Europe by predicting that this
country will put them in concentration camps Uncle Sam
is not going to repeat the mistakes of the French Government,
which interned well-known anti-Fascist fighters because Ger-
many was their land of origin ... In Britain they've found the
retort courteous to those garrulous know-it-alls who, wittingly
or unwittingly, do the Fifth Column's work with their alarmist
or defeatist whisperings "Belial, here we come," is what
you're supposed to say when such gentry start buzzing in your
ear Belial, you should know, is the ancient Hebrew personifi-
cation of wickedness And in your hat should you paste this
slogan, which stems from Hollywood: "Buy defense stamps and
lick the other side" ... c

MOTHER
She traveled the journey
before you,
She has known all the
cost of the way,
She paid out the price to
its fulness
That Motherhood only
can pay.
She loved when the world
was against you
She hopedwhen your
hope sank and died.
She clung to your hand
when the clinging
Left scars in her heart
deep and wide.
She laboredand loved
and was happy,
For down deep in her
kind heart she knew
Your kindness and love
would repay her
For all that she didjust
for you.

William
I.
Boxerman
In This Epoch
Henri Bernstein, the famous
French Jewish critic, gave an
interview to the Anglo-Jewish
press When asked what
advice he had to offer American
Jewry, he said, "In this epoch
many men and some great wo-
men are volunteering to fight
and die There must be Jews
conspicious among those volun- j a'| .
teers ... All over the world to-
day there is a whispering cam-
paign to the effect that Jews
are cowards, that they prefer
to shield themselves behind
ethers.
"This is a shameful attack .
There never has been a better
time for the Jews to come for-
ward and give telling evidence
j have been heartened by the at-
| titude of one of our Miami boys
I who said to us recently. "You
'ask why I am enlisting?? .
Simply because this is our last
chance to help achieve the des-
truction of Nazism And if
we fall now, history will write
finis to the Jewish people, as
well as to democratic liberties
for all peoples."
Such, by and large, is the spirit
Of our Jewish youth Such is
the stuff of which most Ameri-
cans are made, be their religion
what it may.
Blue Bloods
Strange are the vagaries of our
own governmental agencies at
tunes ... At least two local Jew-
ish candidates for U. S. Naval
Intelligence have been con-
fronted with a queer item on
their application blank ... It
smacks of something foreign .
It is this: "Racial Descent." .
Rumor has it that one must be a
third generation American before
he can qualify for this branch of
Service ... As Pearson and Allen
said recently, under such a re-
quirement "not even Wendell
Willkie could qualify."
Regrettable indeed it is that
such prejudice exists within the
inner circles of national defense
when the cry is for
unity Does the fact that
one"s grandfather was born in
Europe diminish his usefulness if
he has the necessary qualifica-
tions for the job? We know at
least several men in our own
circle who would be an invalu-
able asset to the Nava
gence
Service) though, blue blood docs
not course through their veins
. So they arc taboo.
Association With Hebrews
Then there is that Miami Beach
hotel, which has been sending
letters throughout the country
with these words included: "For
reasons which we cannot over-
come and feel impossible to ex-
plain, our guests are averse to
association with Hebrews so it
would be unpleasant for them to
spend their vacation at our ho-
tel."
Interesting was the recent
clientele at this hotel Ted
Husing, the famous sports an-
nouncer the Georgia foot-
ball team, playing in the Orange
Bowl .several other celebrit-
ies.
We don't care what kind of
clientele a hotel wishes to serve
. That remains their American
privilege but advertise-
ments of this flagrantly obnox-
ious kind slap a person in the
face and spread deep hatred be-
tween groups Fortunately,
the manager of this particular
hotel saw the logic of our position
. When approached, he agreed
to change in his letters and
advertisements.

Not a day passes but that a

ANNOUNCEMENT
Cfcm2-THATS THE MOST,
, IMPORTANT THING
YOULL HEAR TONIGHT]
f
The decision Monday, to de-
finitely call off the scheduled
race meeting at Santa Anita
Park in California, brought an
immediate flood of applications
from horse owners and trainers
for stalls at Tropical Park.
While it will be utterly im-
possible for the Gables Racing
Association, Inc., to accomodate
all the horses now in California
for which Tropical Park stalls
have been requested, it is making
a serious effort to accomodate as
many of them as possible.
Tropical Park's winter meet-
ing proving eminently success-
ful thus far, despite war time
conditions. 'Tis true that there
has been a slackening in activity
in the mutuel department but
the new management of the
Gables Racing Association has
been compensated almost com-
pletely for this by a considerable
increase in gate receipts made
possible by the no pass rule
This just about stands off the
slump in the track's take from
the "tote" cut and its loss of
the breakage. The state, of
course, under the new law has
all the best of it, with its 5%
heavier share in the mutuel take,
plus the entire breakage. Now
that the holiday season is past,
it is anticipated there will be
the usual attendance increase
with the eight remaining days the
most prosperous of the session.
The racing itself has been tip-
top, with larger fields and a
better grade of competitors than
ever before.
Bob Shelley's final book of the
meeting is topped by the $5,000
Defense Handicap, a test of one
mile and a furlong set for de-
cision on the coming Saturday.
This feature is unique, in that
it is completely in Defense bonds.
While few of the horses from
California will reach Florida in
time to participate in the cur-
rent meeting, which closes next
Tuesday, all those coming are to
take part in the second meeting,
March 9th to April 10th. Need-
less to say, the class of racing
then will set the highest stand-
ard in the history of the sport at
popular Tropical Park.
London (WNS)A crude at-
tempt to incite the Arabs in Pal-
estine, Transjordan and Syria to
rebel against their "British and
Jewish masters," has been
launched by Axis radio stations
which reported this week that a
Soviet delegation had visited
Palestine to arrange for the
transfer of 500,000 Russian Jews
to the Holy Land.
The Fascist radios reported
that the transfer of the 500,000
Russian Jews to Palestine would
be the first step in a "Jewish-
Russian-American" program to
establish a Jewish state in Pales-
tine and Transjordan. The Ru-
manian radio, which broadcast
the report in Arabic, said that
500,000 Arabs would be forcibly
moved from their homes.

intuition, it seems, told him that he would need all available
prison space for the 1942 crop of Hitler-hitters ... Did you know
that Alfred Rosenberg, who single-handed created the Nazi
religious philosophy out of thin air, also has written a book on
Zionism as a force inimical to the state? And that in the
Nazi Who's Who such people as Rosenberg, Heinrich Himmler,
Hans Frank and other swastika-worshippers with names which
to the uninitiated might sound Semitic, specify that they are
Aryans and sometimes even list their family tree for several
generations? .
HESS JEST
Winchell relays the one about the letter Rudolf Hessre-
member him?is supposed to have written to his old cronies in
the Fatherland, telling them how well he was being treated in
England, how he enjoyed the hearty British victuals, etc, etc .
When Hitler saw the letter he grew vastly disturbed, and called
a meeting of Nazi party leaders to discuss the matter ... He read
them the letter, and then delivered a lengthy harangue ex-
coriating the British for softening up so Spartan a Nazi with the
drug of easy living "Something must be done about this!"
he shrieked in conclusion, and sat down and wiped his pers-
piring brow Seeing that the furor was finished, his listeners
all jumped up and headed for the door "Where are you
going?" Hitler asked in amazement And in chorus they
answered, licking their chops: "We're rushing right over to
save Hess!" .
BROADWAY BROADSIDE
Critical opinion was not entirely unanimous in praise of the
new Clifford Odets play, "Clash by Night," which marks Billy
Rose's debut as a producer of serious drama But every-
body agreed that the play would probably be a hit, with such
stars as Tallulah Bankhead and Joseph Schildkraut Wel-
coming Broadway's newest musical, "Banjo Eyes," Harry
Herschfield announces that Eddie wins in a Cantor Have
you heard Al Lackey's new song called "I Wouldn't Be a Jap
For All the Tea in China?" Preparing for a real career in
the drama is young Bobby Breen, who a few years ago was
the movies' boy soprano, but who dropped out of sight when
time lowered his voice by a couple of octaves Georgie
Jessel insists that he's going to register his two-month old daugh-
ter with a theatrical agency ... In times like these, says George,
every man, woman and child must work .
ABOUT PEOPLE
There are sixty Jewish chaplains in active service in Hawaii,
and Admiral Claude C. Bloch is one of the key naval figures on
this pivotal defense bastion Jan Peerce, the Metropolitan
Opera Company's sensational new tenor, now co-stars, with
soprano Jean Tennyson, on theo
Columbia Broadcasting System's
new Wednesday night series of
highlights from famous operas
. The son of David Sarnoff,
president of the Radio Corpora-
tion of America, is cutting quite
a figure in the town's night life
these days But we wonder
whether he'll ever reach the
stature of his papa, who at the
age of twenty equipped a vessel
and made a trip to the Arctic
ice fields as a wireless operator
. We don't really expect Buddy
Baer to beat Joe Louis in their
heavyweight championship bout
this Fridaybut we do think
that Buddy (who. like brother
Max. wears a Mogen David on his
boxing trunks) deserves some
sort of reward for his willing-
ness to expose himself to the
Louis punch a second time, and
for donating a substantial part
of his fee to the USO ... Do you
remember Mary Small, radio's
child songstress of only a few
seasons ago? Well, she's go-
ing to become Mrs. Victor (song-
writer)) Mizzy next month .
And did you know that band-
leader Artie Shaw is entitled to
write the words "Master of
Music" after his name? The
degree, an honorary one, was
conferred on him by the Univer-
sity of Omaha Before 1942
will be over. Professor Albert
Einstein will publish his new
scientific findings, which will
once more amaze the civilized
world Among the Jewish
leaders who will visit Latin
American countries this year
will be Maxa Nordau and Sha-
lom Asch .

Zionist^X District
By Louis Heiman, Pres.
The second monthly meeting
of the Miami Zionist District was
held on Wednesday night, Jan-
uary 7th at 8:30 p. m. at the Ho-
tel Evans. Miami Beach, at
which time a large attendance
was present to enjoy the even-
ing. Louis Brenner of New York
City, who was sent to Miami to
co-ordinate the work of the Jew-
ish National Fund, gave a brief
address. The highlight of the
evening, however, was a Zionist
"Information Please." and the
"Experts" participating were the
following: Rabbi Moses Meschel-
off, former President of Miami
Beach Mizrachi; Mrs. Max Dob-
rin, former president of Miami
Senior Hadassah; Hana G. Mack.
President of Miami Junior Ha-
dassah; Israel Sliapoff of the
Jewish Workers Alliance; Dave
Bear, former president of Miami
Masada and Louis Heiman, Presi-
dent of Miami Zionist District.
The questions relating to the Zi-
onist movement were propounded
by Rabbi Max Shapiro, who an-
nounced that the District would
be fined one Victory Button for
each question that the "Experts"
were unable to answer. Needless
to say. the District escaped with-
out any penalty in view of the
great familiarity of the "Experts"
with the Zionist Movement. One
cil the interesting questions asked
was "Is the Arab justified in con-
tending that Palestine has been
an Arab State during the past
two thousand years, and that,
therefore, the Jewish people are
not entitled thereto?" The ques-
tion was beautifully answered
by Rabbi Mcscheloff. who first
secured the opinion of an at-
torney in the audience on
whether a squatter, who re-
mained on land for a long period
of time, secured title thereto.
When the attorney answered
that the squatter must remain on
the land PEACEABLY and con-
tinuously for the entire period
of time. Rabbi Mescheloff then
explained that the Arabs were
not justified in claiming Pales-
tine as an Arab State because the
Jewish people have been plead-
ing for the last two thousand
years for their land and object-
ing to the so-called title of the
Arab population.
The Zionists, like all good
Americans, have joined in the
common war effort, but we are
continuing with the purposes of
our movement, looking forward
to the Peace Conference when
the World Zionist Organization
will secure Palestine as a Home-
land for the Jewish People.

Notes
By MILTON FRIEDMAN
This has certainly been a hec-
tic week.- It was my pleasure
to supervise the first Florida
Regional convention of A. Z. A.
which was held in Jacksonville,
December 28th through 31st.
Orlando. Jacksonville, Tampa,
St. Petersburg, Miami and Mi-
ami Beach were represented.
Jacksonville won the Milton A.
Friedman trophy for the best
chapter award with Miami run-
ning a very close second. Sho-
lem Lodge should feel proud of
the record of its two local A.
Z. A. chapters. Marvin Gold-
man of Miami won the oratory
contest, with Leonard Merlin of
Miami Beach coming in second.
Miami went to the finals in de-
bating and basketball also. Many
B. Z. B. girls (A. Z. A. Auxil-
iary) from this area attended and
they did right well too. Miss
Edith Leibovitz of the Beach
was acclaimed the Florida A. Z.
A. sweetheart with Gwen Res-
nick of Miami taking second
honors. The convention next
year will be sponsored by the
Miami and Miami Beach chap-
ters.
The oratory contest was held
before the Jacksonville B'nai
B'rith Lodge at their regular
meeting. Bros. Shorstein. Witten.
Selbcr. Newman, and the others
wish to be remembered.
Brother Bill Boxerman of the
A. D. L. office was up there mak-
ing plans for a big confab in the
near future. Brother Gunzburg.
who is so active in refugee re-
settlement work, also was on the
Jacksonville scene.
Incidentally I had the novel ex-
perience in Jacksonville of going
through my first blackout. I can
pass on some salient facts about
it which may help you in the
blackout that will take place here
this Sunday. First, get off the
streets. Second, seek a home or
other shelter before the alarm
signal has ceased. Third, all autos
must clear streets or be parked
before the initial alarm signal
has ceased (the alarm signal us-
ually goes on for about five min-
utes before the blackout starts).
Fourth, keep clear of all fire
plugs. Fifth, all lights on auto-
mobiles or within buildings, ex-
cept those lights within build-
ings which are not visible from
the outside, must be extinguished
before the alarm has ceased.
Sixth, every outside light of
whatever character must be ex-
tinguished before the alarm ceas-
es. Streets must be kept open
and no double parking is allowed.
On highways, vehicles must pull
off the pavement. There is no
traffic of any nature, pedestrian
or vehicular, permitted after the
initial alarm until the "all clear"
signal is given. Needless to say
blackout efficiency may save
lives when and ifand we all
hope it does notsame becomes
necessary. Make it your solemn
duty therefore to see that all
lights are out during the 30 min-
ute blackout. It only means the
slight inconvenience of sitting in
the dark for that short time.
Turn off all neon clocksit's
Sunday anyhowso that no store
will have a light on.
The first meeting of the new
officers of Sholem Lodge took
place this past Sunday morning
at the office of President Roth.
The main business transacted was
the discussion of committee chair-
men appointments and the Shirer
lecture. On the basis of the cards
turned in by the brothers setting
forth the particular committee on
which they desired to work this
year and other factors most of
the chairmen were selected. A
list of same will appear in a lat-
er column, rather than herein, so
that my successor as columnist
will have the opportunity to have
news with which to form the
basis for a column.
As for the Shirer lecture,
briefly, with more emphasis lat-
er, the date is Feb. 21st. at the
Edison High School in Miami.
The first ten rows will be re-
served at $2.20 (tax included)
each, and the rest of the audito-
rium wilNsell at $1.65 (tax in-
cluded) per ticket. The net pro-
ceeds will go to the Crippled
Children's Hospital. The chair-
man for the affair is Brother Abe
Aronovitz.
This column marks my final
chapter as your Sholem Lodge
columnist. It was sincerely a
pleasure to have been afforded
the opportunity to serve the
Lodge in this capacity. I trust
that you found this column in-
formative and sometimes per-
haps even entertaining. To my
successor, Al Green, I wish suc-
cess in this work. As they say
in radio parlance, "You're on Al,
so take it away."

Managing Editor One SUBSCRIPTION Year, $2.00 Six Months, $1.00 Entered as Second Class Matter July 4, 1930, at the Post Office of Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 1942 TEVETH 20, 5702 VOLUME 15 NUMBER 2 My Dear Fellow American Jew Last night you had a nightmare. You saw yourself in a Nazi concentration camp, strapped down to a stone slab. Towering above you, lash in hand, was a Storm Trooper, his lips drawn back in a mad snarl, and his eyes inflamed with one desire—to see your life drain from your body under the flailing blows of the lash. Then, just as the whip was about to descend, a voice out of nowhere asked: "How much will you give to be spared." And you replied: "All I have." At this point you awoke, with perspiration running cold on your forehead. You groped about, to make sure that you were still lying on a Beautyrest mattress, that you were still covered by a warm blanket. You strained your ears to catch the sounds of the night, and you heard the drowsy whistle of the freight train at a crossing. You heard a belated automobile purring by along the street outside. But most of all you heard the easy, peaceful breathing of your wife at your side. Then what did you do? Did you relax against the pillow and mutter to yourself, half in resentment, half in disgust: "Dammit, I've been reading the papers too much" ... ? Or did you pause, before falling off to sleep again, to sigh with compassion: "Those concentration camps must be awful." ? Or did you, by chance, remain awake for a long, long time, perhaps until daybreak, your eyes wide open. "This is no nightmare It's real Hundreds of thousands have gone through it Thank God I am in America." Yes, my friend, you should thank God that you are in America—but do not depend entirely upon Him to keep America free, for He has no patience with them who ask for, and receive, meat in the desert, but who shirk the responsibilities placed upon them by their destiny. The 1942 campaign of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation to be held between January 18th and 28th, has as its goal the sum of SI59,902. It is your responsibility to contribute liberally to the Campaign. For among the 46 causes represented, are not only the agencies for relief abroad, not only national and local agencies for education, recreation, case work, etc., but also the national civic-protetive agencies whose task is the defense of the Jews here in America. I take it that you observe the Passover holiday. Do you recall the very first passage in The Haggadah, which we recite at the Seder table? It begins with the words: "This is the bread of affliction that our parents ate in the land of Egypt ," and it concludes: "This year we are enslaved; next year we shall be freemen." My dear friend! If American democracy means anything to you, if the light of freedom is to endure for your children, then be prepared to eat the bread of affliction with gladness, so that this year and the years thereafter, we may still be free men. "How much will you give to be spared?" Consider now and consider well! Let the measure of your contribution to the 1942 Campaign be your answer! (Acknowledgment to the Cleveland Jewish Observer, from which part of this letter was taken.) In Memorium The news of the passing of Pinchas Rutenberg in Jerusalem and Chief Rabbi Moses Schorr of Warsaw came as a great blow to world Jewry. Both were of heroic stature, giving unstintingly and selflessly of themselves and dedicating their lives to the best interests of their people. Pinchas Rutenberg, one of the most colorful figures in Jewish affairs who achieved fame as the man who gave electricity to Palestine, died in Jerusalem after a long illness and was buried "in a modest place among modest Jews" according to his own expressed with. His contributions were numberless, his strength was a rock for his people. Long a leader of the Yishub, he played an important role in combatting the White Paper. The death of Chief Rabbi Moses Schorr ended a five months search for one of the most heroic figures to come out of the Nazi oppression of Poland. The circumstances surrounding his end symbolized in essence the basic ideals to which he devoted his life. During the Nazi invasion of Poland arrangements had been made for him to flee to France. His answer was that "as long as I am the head of Polish Jewry, I cannot leave Polish soil on which millions of Jews remain." And so he gave his life to Israel. In no small measure will the memory of his courage, devotion and effort provide hope and comfort and inspiration to those for whom he lived and died. OF NEAR READINESS FOR GREAT DRIVE (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) Stone, chairman of the Unit, Mrs. Stanley C. Myers, chairman of the Women's division and Morris Klass, director of the Federation. Over twenty workers were present. Mrs. Stanley C. Myers, chairman of the Women's division announces two new appointments to the campaign officers of her division: Mrs. Moses Krieger will head the Special Gift Unit of the Women's division and Mrs. Milton Sirkin will head a team on Miami Beach. Over forty Jewish physicians of Miami and Miami Beach met at the Dempsey Vanderbilt Hotel on Wednesday evening to hear the chairman of the Board of Directors of the Greater Miami Jewish Federaation on the "Need for Supporting our Welfare Services in Time of War." Other speakers included on the program were: Councilman Baron de Hirsch Meyer, who gave the background to the proposed hospital on Miami Beach, Dr. Spicor of the Miami Medical Defense Unit who described preparations being made by the medical authorities for Civilian Defense and William Boxerman of the Miami office of the AntiDefamation League, a Federation supported agency, who described subversive activities in this area and in the nation, and the efforts of his organization to combat this. This meeting was arranged through the efforts of Dr. Frank Coret, Dr. Philip Weinstein and Dr. Stanley Frehling, three chair= men of the Professional division. The doctors pledged their support to Federation in their 1942 campaign. Benjamin E. Bronston, chairman of the Special Gifts Division, announced today the third meeting of his division Sunday morning at breakfast in the White House Hotel. Members of the Special Gifts Division include: Leonard L. Abess, Rudy Adler, Mr. and Mrs. Morris Alpert, Mr! and Mrs. D. J. Apte, Mr. and Mrs. R .W. Apte, Mr. and Mrs. Albert E. Berkeley, Sam Blank, B. E. Bronston, Dr. Frank Coret, Leo Eisenstein, Sam Estroff, Isaac Levin, Joseph Lipton, Samuel Luby, Baron deHirsch Meyer, Mrs. Benjamin Meyers, S. B Miller, Stanley C. Myers, Max Orovitz, Mrs. Mathilda Ratncr, Hy Rifas, Morton Russack, Monte Selig, Jacob Sher. Benjamin Slote, Elry Stone, Joseph Stein, Carl Weinkle. Bus Hilb, Wm. S. Singer and Sol S. Goldstrom. The Special Gifts Division hopes to complete its work before the opening of the drive on January 18th. Jerome H. Weinkle. chairman of the Youth Division, held a buffet supper for his workers Thursday evening in his home. The Youth Division is organizing all Jewish college sororities and fraternities, and all Jewish youth organizations behind the Federation drive. Mr. Weinkle stated that he has splendid cooperation and expects the Youth Division this year to over-subscribe its quota. WIDOW OF SIMON WOLF. FAMOUS LEADER. IS DEAD Washington (WNS)—Mrs. Amy L. Wolf, widow of the late Simon Wolf, one of the outstanding figures in American Jewish life and one of the great leaders of B'nai B'rith, died here at her home on December 31st.

FROM THE SWIVEL HAIR c William I. Boxerman In This Epoch Henri Bernstein, the famous French Jewish critic, gave an interview to the Anglo-Jewish press When asked what advice he had to offer American Jewry, he said, "In this epoch many men and some great women are volunteering to fight and die There must be Jews conspicious among those volunj a '| teers ... All over the world today there is a whispering campaign to the effect that Jews are cowards, that they prefer to shield themselves behind ethers. "This is a shameful attack There never has been a better time for the Jews to come forward and give telling evidence j have been heartened by the at| titude of one of our Miami boys I who said to us recently. "You 'ask why I am enlisting?? Simply because this is our last chance to help achieve the destruction of Nazism And if we fall now, history will write finis to the Jewish people, as well as to democratic liberties for all peoples." Such, by and large, is the spirit Of our Jewish youth Such is the stuff of which most Americans are made, be their religion what it may. Blue Bloods Strange are the vagaries of our own governmental agencies at tunes ... At least two local Jewish candidates for U. S. Naval Intelligence have been confronted with a queer item on their application blank ... It smacks of something foreign It is this: "Racial Descent." Rumor has it that one must be a third generation American before he can qualify for this branch of Service ... As Pearson and Allen said recently, under such a requirement "not even Wendell Willkie could qualify." Regrettable indeed it is that such prejudice exists within the inner circles of national defense when the cry is for unity Does the fact that one"s grandfather was born in Europe diminish his usefulness if he has the necessary qualifications for the job? We know at least several men in our own circle who would be an invaluable asset to the Nava gence Service) though, blue blood docs not course through their veins So they arc taboo. Association With Hebrews Then there is that Miami Beach hotel, which has been sending letters throughout the country with these words included: "For reasons which we cannot overcome and feel impossible to explain, our guests are averse to association with Hebrews so it would be unpleasant for them to spend their vacation at our hotel." Interesting was the recent clientele at this hotel Ted Husing, the famous sports announcer the Georgia football team, playing in the Orange Bowl .several other celebrities. We don't care what kind of clientele a hotel wishes to serve That remains their American privilege but advertisements of this flagrantly obnoxious kind slap a person in the face and spread deep hatred between groups Fortunately, the manager of this particular hotel saw the logic of our position When approached, he agreed to change in his letters and advertisements.

JANUARY 9, 1942 STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4) intuition, it seems, told him that he would need all available prison space for the 1942 crop of Hitler-hitters ... Did you know that Alfred Rosenberg, who single-handed created the Nazi religious philosophy out of thin air, also has written a book on Zionism as a force inimical to the state? And that in the Nazi Who's Who such people as Rosenberg, Heinrich Himmler, Hans Frank and other swastika-worshippers with names which to the uninitiated might sound Semitic, specify that they are Aryans and sometimes even list their family tree for several generations? HESS JEST Winchell relays the one about the letter Rudolf Hess—remember him?—is supposed to have written to his old cronies in the Fatherland, telling them how well he was being treated in England, how he enjoyed the hearty British victuals, etc, etc When Hitler saw the letter he grew vastly disturbed, and called a meeting of Nazi party leaders to discuss the matter ... He read them the letter, and then delivered a lengthy harangue excoriating the British for softening up so Spartan a Nazi with the drug of easy living "Something must be done about this!" he shrieked in conclusion, and sat down and wiped his perspiring brow Seeing that the furor was finished, his listeners all jumped up and headed for the door "Where are you going?" Hitler asked in amazement And in chorus they answered, licking their chops: "We're rushing right over to save Hess!" BROADWAY BROADSIDE Critical opinion was not entirely unanimous in praise of the new Clifford Odets play, "Clash by Night," which marks Billy Rose's debut as a producer of serious drama But everybody agreed that the play would probably be a hit, with such stars as Tallulah Bankhead and Joseph Schildkraut Welcoming Broadway's newest musical, "Banjo Eyes," Harry Herschfield announces that Eddie wins in a Cantor Have you heard Al Lackey's new song called "I Wouldn't Be a Jap For All the Tea in China?" Preparing for a real career in the drama is young Bobby Breen, who a few years ago was the movies' boy soprano, but who dropped out of sight when time lowered his voice by a couple of octaves Georgie Jessel insists that he's going to register his two-month old daughter with a theatrical agency ...

The second monthly meeting of the Miami Zionist District was held on Wednesday night, January 7th at 8:30 p. m. at the Hotel Evans. Miami Beach, at which time a large attendance was present to enjoy the evening. Louis Brenner of New York City, who was sent to Miami to co-ordinate the work of the Jewish National Fund, gave a brief address. The highlight of the evening, however, was a Zionist "Information Please." and the "Experts" participating were the following: Rabbi Moses Mescheloff, former President of Miami Beach Mizrachi; Mrs. Max Dobrin, former president of Miami Senior Hadassah; Hana G. Mack. President of Miami Junior Hadassah; Israel Sliapoff of the Jewish Workers Alliance; Dave Bear, former president of Miami Masada and Louis Heiman, President of Miami Zionist District. The questions relating to the Zionist movement were propounded by Rabbi Max Shapiro, who announced that the District would be fined one Victory Button for each question that the "Experts" were unable to answer. Needless to say. the District escaped without any penalty in view of the great familiarity of the "Experts" with the Zionist Movement. One cil the interesting questions asked was "Is the Arab justified in contending that Palestine has been an Arab State during the past two thousand years, and that, therefore, the Jewish people are not entitled thereto?" The question was beautifully answered by Rabbi Mcscheloff. who first secured the opinion of an attorney in the audience on whether a squatter, who remained on land for a long period of time, secured title thereto. When the attorney answered that the squatter must remain on the land PEACEABLY and continuously for the entire period of time. Rabbi Mescheloff then explained that the Arabs were not justified in claiming Palestine as an Arab State because the Jewish people have been pleading for the last two thousand years for their land and objecting to the so-called title of the Arab population. The Zionists, like all good Americans, have joined in the common war effort, but we are continuing with the purposes of our movement, looking forward to the Peace Conference when the World Zionist Organization will secure Palestine as a Homeland for the Jewish People.

Not Best Because Biggest But—Biggest Because Best 2-608S PHONE 5-1317 B'nai B'rith Notes By MILTON FRIEDMAN This has certainly been a hectic week.It was my pleasure to supervise the first Florida Regional convention of A. Z. A. which was held in Jacksonville, December 28th through 31st. Orlando. Jacksonville, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Miami and Miami Beach were represented. Jacksonville won the Milton A. Friedman trophy for the best chapter award with Miami running a very close second. Sholem Lodge should feel proud of the record of its two local A. Z. A. chapters. Marvin Goldman of Miami won the oratory contest, with Leonard Merlin of Miami Beach coming in second. Miami went to the finals in debating and basketball also. Many B. Z. B. girls (A. Z. A. Auxiliary) from this area attended and they did right well too. Miss Edith Leibovitz of the Beach was acclaimed the Florida A. Z. A. sweetheart with Gwen Resnick of Miami taking second honors. The convention next year will be sponsored by the Miami and Miami Beach chapters. The oratory contest was held before the Jacksonville B'nai B'rith Lodge at their regular meeting. Bros. Shorstein. Witten. Selbcr. Newman, and the others wish to be remembered. Brother Bill Boxerman of the A. D. L. office was up there making plans for a big confab in the near future. Brother Gunzburg. who is so active in refugee resettlement work, also was on the Jacksonville scene. Incidentally I had the novel experience in Jacksonville of going through my first blackout. I can pass on some salient facts about it which may help you in the blackout that will take place here this Sunday. First, get off the streets. Second, seek a home or other shelter before the alarm signal has ceased. Third, all autos must clear streets or be parked before the initial alarm signal has ceased (the alarm signal usually goes on for about five minutes before the blackout starts). Fourth, keep clear of all fire plugs. Fifth, all lights on automobiles or within buildings, except those lights within buildings which are not visible from the outside, must be extinguished before the alarm has ceased. Sixth, every outside light of whatever character must be extinguished before the alarm ceases. Streets must be kept open and no double parking is allowed. On highways, vehicles must pull off the pavement. There is no traffic of any nature, pedestrian or vehicular, permitted after the initial alarm until the "all clear" signal is given. Needless to say blackout efficiency may save lives when and if—and we all hope it does not—same becomes necessary. Make it your solemn duty therefore to see that all lights are out during the 30 minute blackout. It only means the slight inconvenience of sitting in the dark for that short time. Turn off all neon clocks—it's Sunday anyhow—so that no store will have a light on. The first meeting of the new officers of Sholem Lodge took place this past Sunday morning at the office of President Roth. The main business transacted was the discussion of committee chairmen appointments and the Shirer lecture. On the basis of the cards turned in by the brothers setting forth the particular committee on which they desired to work this year and other factors most of the chairmen were selected. A list of same will appear in a later column, rather than herein, so that my successor as columnist will have the opportunity to have news with which to form the basis for a column. As for the Shirer lecture, briefly, with more emphasis later, the date is Feb. 21st. at the Edison High School in Miami. The first ten rows will be reserved at $2.20 (tax included) each, and the rest of the auditorium wilNsell at $1.65 (tax included) per ticket. The net proceeds will go to the Crippled Children's Hospital. The chairman for the affair is Brother Abe Aronovitz. This column marks my final chapter as your Sholem Lodge columnist. It was sincerely a pleasure to have been afforded the opportunity to serve the Lodge in this capacity. I trust that you found this column informative and sometimes perhaps even entertaining. To my successor, Al Green, I wish success in this work. As they say in radio parlance, "You're on Al, so take it away."

SELTZER ANNOUNCEMENT Cfcm2-THATS THE MOST, IMPORTANT THING YOULL HEAR TONIGHT] f The decision Monday, to definitely call off the scheduled race meeting at Santa Anita Park in California, brought an immediate flood of applications from horse owners and trainers for stalls at Tropical Park. While it will be utterly impossible for the Gables Racing Association, Inc., to accomodate all the horses now in California for which Tropical Park stalls have been requested, it is making a serious effort to accomodate as many of them as possible. Tropical Park's winter meeting proving eminently successful thus far, despite war time conditions. 'Tis true that there has been a slackening in activity in the mutuel department but the new management of the Gables Racing Association has been compensated almost completely for this by a considerable increase in gate receipts made possible by the no pass rule This just about stands off the slump in the track's take from the "tote" cut and its loss of the breakage. The state, of course, under the new law has all the best of it, with its 5% heavier share in the mutuel take, plus the entire breakage. Now that the holiday season is past, it is anticipated there will be the usual attendance increase with the eight remaining days the most prosperous of the session. The racing itself has been tiptop, with larger fields and a better grade of competitors than ever before. Bob Shelley's final book of the meeting is topped by the $5,000 Defense Handicap, a test of one mile and a furlong set for decision on the coming Saturday. This feature is unique, in that it is completely in Defense bonds. While few of the horses from California will reach Florida in time to participate in the current meeting, which closes next Tuesday, all those coming are to take part in the second meeting, March 9th to April 10th. Needless to say, the class of racing then will set the highest standard in the history of the sport at popular Tropical Park. London (WNS)—A crude attempt to incite the Arabs in Palestine, Transjordan and Syria to rebel against their "British and Jewish masters," has been launched by Axis radio stations which reported this week that a Soviet delegation had visited Palestine to arrange for the transfer of 500,000 Russian Jews to the Holy Land. The Fascist radios reported that the transfer of the 500,000 Russian Jews to Palestine would be the first step in a "JewishRussian-American" program to establish a Jewish state in Palestine and Transjordan. The Rumanian radio, which broadcast the report in Arabic, said that 500,000 Arabs would be forcibly moved from their homes. THE Y. M.H.A.

wJemsti FSonW&m COMBING The Jewish iu in fifty VOLUME 15—No. 2 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 1942 PRICE 10 CENTS FIRST BLACKOUT FOR DUDE COUNTY THIS SUNDAY EVE Dade County's first practice blackout is scheduled for Sunday night, January 11th from 10:15 to 10:45 p. m., thirty minutes, all arrangements having been perfected by the Dade County Defense Council, and it was emphasized that every person is expected to observe the blackout instructions: there shall be no exceptions. In order that the instructions may receive wide circulation, the council has had them incorporated in a bulletin, a four-page newspaper layout, and general [ distribution is being made. In a practice blackout, or an [actual air raid, the main requireiment is that the people remain 'calm, and observe the basic rules | incorporated in the bulletin. There are two reasons for blackouts. First, they hide i bomb targets. Second, they conIceal whole areas so that they [cannot be used as guides to enlemy bombers. In the first in[ stance an enemy pilot over a Jblacked-out city is unable to [identify the important targets in [the city. In the second instance, Ian enemy pilot flying over a [blacked-out landscape can find no illuminated place by which to set his course toward his main Objective. Blackouts are, therefore, deigned to prevent death and desiction. The air raid alarm blackout Signals will reach the people by varnings over the radio. All street lights will be turned on nd off three times, at two-second itervals. Factory and other Steam whistles will blow a series of blasts of about five seconds leach, three seconds apart. Sirens [on police cars and fire engines fwill sound blasts at the same interval. The "all clear" signals are: [Announcements will be made by [radio. Street lights will be [turned on. Steady two-minute |blasts of whistles. Steady twolinute blasts of sirens. ANTI-TYPHUS SERUMS ARE ASKED FOR POLE GHETTOS London (WNS) — Dr. Ignacy Schwartzbart, Jewish member of the Polish National Council, has appealed to Argentine Jewry to send anti-typhus serums to combat the dreaded spotted typhus epidemics now raging in the overcrowded, unsanitary Polish ghettos, it was disclosed here. Dr. Schwartzbart directed his appeal to the Federation of Polish Jews in Argentina because that country is not at war with Nazi Germany and supplies can still be shipped from Argentina to Nazi-occupied Poland. Since the United States' entry into the war, American Jews cannot send supplies into any part of Naziheld Europe. DENIED ACCESS TO AIR SHELTERS ARE KILLED PHILIP WYLIE TO SPEAK AT YIH1 DEFENSE RALLY Philip Wylie, noted author, will be the guest speaker at a mass defense rally under the sponsorship of the Y. M. H. A. next Wednesday evening at the Y clubrooms. Mr. Wylie, a visitor to Miami during the boom, several years ago became a permanent resident here, building a home on CLAIM JEWS SPREADING TYPHUS GERMS IN POLAND Istanbul (WNS) — Following ie lead taken by Nazi Germany, le Food Ministry of the Hungarian Government this week an-1 lounced that food rations for | lews will be reduced by 50 per [cent, it was reported here. Hithlerto, the Jews in Germany reIceived the same rations as nonIJews. In effect, me Hungarian decree means slow starvation for the 800,000 Jews in Hungary since [the food rations received in the [past were hardly adequate. At [the start of the war Germany inroduced the system whereby lews receive one-half the amount ttf food allotted to "Aryans." Zurich (WNS)—Reports published in the Swiss press stated that 52 Jews in Berlin were killed and 74, including 24 women, were severly injured in British air raids in 1941 when they were denied access to air raid shelters. Jews in Germany are forbidden to enter the regular raid shelters but must take refuge during raids in shelters built by the Berlin Jewish community. The Jewish raid victims were a considerable distance away from the Jewish shelters when the air raids occurred and were trapped in the streets. Meanwhile, the Nazi press this week unleashed a campaign of hate against the Jews of Finland. Acting under Nazi order; the Helsinki press recently warned the Jews to leave the country or suffer the consequences of a Nazi-styled anti-Jewish program. Many Finnish Jews left immediately for Switzerland. The Nazi press is now berating the Finnish Government for permitting the Jews to leave the country with their possessions. The German newspapers are demanding that Finland strip the Jews of all their money and material possessions before permitting them to emigrate. Stockholm (WNS)—The Jews are deliberately "spreading the spotted typhus epidemic in Nazi-occupied Poland and the Baltic countries in order to weaken the Nazi army and pave the way for a "Jewish-democratic" victory, according to Germany's most vicious anti-Semite, Julius Streicher. Germany's No. 1 anti-Semite raised the charge in his newspaper, "Der Stuermer," which is customarily devoted to pernography of the vilest sort and to pogrom-inciting anti-Jewish attacks. Streicher issued a special edition of "Der Stuermer," to "prove" to the German people that the Jews were deliberately spreading the epidemics. Oil B'RITH TO PHILIP WYLIE CHIEF RABBI MOSES SCHORR DIES IN RUSSIA JULY 8TH THE DATE OF THE FIRST BLACKOUT PRACTICE FOR DADE COUNTY IS SUNDAY. JANUARY 11. THE TIME WILL BE 10:15 TO 10:45 P. M. London (WNS) — Chief Rabbi Moses Schorr of Warsaw, one of the most heroic figures in the Nazi occupation of Poland, died in Russia on July 8th, 1941, three days before the signing of the RussoPolish pact which would have released him from Soviet imprisonment, according to an official report of the Polish Am-1 bassador in Russia. News of Prof. Schoor's death, | relayed here from Kuibyshev, Russia, cast a pall of gloom over | Polish Jews now in England. The Polish Government-in-exile requested Dr. Ignacy Schwartzbart, its sole Jewish member, to express its profound regrets to world Jewry at the tragic passing of the Chief Rabbi. Born in Premysl in 1874, Prof. Schorr achieved wide recognition from both Jews and non-Jews. He taught in the University of Lwow from 1910 to 1926. Di Lido Island. His stories have been read by millions and his regular contributions to the Saturday Evening Post have brought Miami a tremendous amount of publicity. Mr. Wylie is at present Public Relations Head of the Dade County Defense Council and is devoting his entire time to this work during the present emergency. "As a loyal American, it is everyone's duty to find out what he or she can do for our country," said Maurice Grossman, executive director of the Y, in speaking of this affair. "Time and again we have heard people say, 'What can I do for our government?'
