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
Blackouts are, therefore, de-
igned to prevent death and des-

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-

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
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
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.

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.

everyone an opportunity to do
something for national defense

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.

With ten days remaining to
the opening of the Federation

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-

time allotted for this work.

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-
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
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
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
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!

Observer, from which part of this letter was
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.

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

teers ... All over the world to-
day there is a whispering cam-

are cowards, that they prefer
to shield themselves behind

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.
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

able asset to the Nava

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
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.

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

answered, licking their chops: "We're rushing right over to
save Hess!" .
Critical opinion was not entirely unanimous in praise of the

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

This has certainly been a hec-

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-

Jacksonville won the Milton A.

chapter award with Miami run-
ning a very close second. Sho-

the record of its two local A.

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.

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
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."
