DECLARATION OF
BELIEFS STATED
BY CONFERENCE
New York (WNS)A declara-
tion of fundamental religious be-
liefs held in common by Protes-
tants. Catholics and Jews, the
first statement of its kind in the
nation's history, was made public
this week by Dr. Everett R.
Clinchy, president of the National
Conference of Christians and
Jews.
The declaration was issued
simultaneously in hundreds of
communities throughout the
country by local leaders of the
three faiths in connection with
the opening of Brotherhood
Week.
In an explanatory statement
Dr. Clinchy emphasized the wide
area of agreement on fundament-
al religious issues which exists

among the three major religious
groups in the United States.
As an example, he pointed out
that a recent study of the social
teachings of the religious bodies
published by his organization
showed that Protestants, Cath-
olics and Jews agree to a "re-
markable extent" as to the prin-
ciples which should govern so-
ciety and the relations that men
should bear to one another. On
seventeen specific subjects. Dr.
Clinchy said, official pronounce-
ment of Catholics, Jews and
Protestants reveal "basic parallel-
isms and identiry of spirit and
intent."

MOSHE SHERTOK
DENOUNCES N. I
PAPER ARTICLES
Jerusalem (WNS) M o s h e
Shertok, head of the political de-
partment of the Jewish Agency
for Palestine, issued a statement
this week denouncing the New
York Times editorial opposing
the establishment of a Jewish
Army in Palestine.
Stating that the New York
Times editorial has created "the
most painful impression." among
Palestine Jews. Mr. Shertok said:
"The reasons that demand the
establishment of a Jewish Army
are twofold. First, the Jews were
the first people attacked by Hit-
ler and suffered more than any
others at his hand. They have
been called upon and are entitled
to make their contribution to the
allied war effort as a people.
"Every allied nation, however
small, from the Free Danes to
the Druses of Syria and the
Senusis of Libya, is fighting un-
der its own flag and there is no
reason why just Jews should be
required to fight anonymously
and subjected to the indignity of
obliteration of their identity.
"Secondly, only by the forma-
tion of a Jewish Army can the
maximum Jewish enthusiasm and
contribution to the allied war ef-
fort be elicited. The demand for
the creation of a Jewish Army is
not inspired by aggressive de-
sign against anyone but is mere-
ly a plea for fair play, equality
and the greatest effort."
"It is incomprehensible, Mr.
Shertok stated, "that the New
York Times should invoke the
Atlantic Charter to support its
anti-Zionist attitude, since the
Charter pledges the Allied Na-
tions to respect the right of all
peoples to choose the form of
government under which they
will live. There can be no doubt
of the resolution of the over-
whelming majority of Jews to put
an end to their present precarious
position in the world."
JEWISH CENTER
WILL HONOR ITS
FORMER FRENCH OFFICIALS
FLEES FROM VICHY PRISON
A testimonial dinner by the in-
stitution which he serves as
president, will be tendered to
Mayer H. Frankel by the Miami
Beach Jewish Center at the
Grossinger Hotel on Washington's
birthday, Sunday evening, Feb-
ruary 22nd. Elaborate prepara-
tions have been made for the
M. H. FRANKEL
evening which calls for nation-
ally known stars and entertainers
of the theatrical field on the pro-
gram in addition to prominent
figures in the national scene tak-
ing part.
Mr. Frankel came to Miami
Beach five years ago from New
York City where he was recog-
nized as one of the largest res-
tauranteurs. Following long fam-
ily tradition, he has been active
in communal and civic endeavors
his entire lifetime and following
his residency here, was instru-
mental in formulating plans for
the erection and was one of the
founders of the Miami Beach
Jewish Center. He is the institu-
tion's first president and has di-
rected its expansion program
which has included synagogue
edifice and its complete equip-
ment.
Proceeds of the dinner will be
devoted to the Center's building
fund and is in charge of a com-
mittee consisting of Leo Robin-
son. Herman M. Berk, Dr. J. J.
Falk, Paul Grossinger, N. H.
Hankoff, Abraham Halperin. Hy-
man Berman, Joseph A. Berman,
Mrs. Helen Schoenfeld. Mrs. Isa-
dore Newman and Mrs. Meyer

London (WNS)Isaac Mendes-
France, Under Secretary of
France in Leon Blum's Popular
Front Cabinet and a member of
a noted French Jewish family,
reached London this week after
escaping from a French military
hospital.
Mendes-France, the first French
official to be court-martialled by
a Vichy tribunal, had been sen-
tenced to six years in prison on
charges of desertion. Following
France's surrender to Germany,
Mendes-France, along with offi-
cials of the Reynaud Cabinet,
fled to Morocco aboard the steam-
er Massilla. He was seized by
Vichy officials in Casablanca and
returned to France where he was
placed on trial.
Mendes-France arrived here a
few days before the scheduled
opening of the Riom trials at
which Leon Blum, former Pre-
mier of France, will be accused
of failing to safeguard France's
national interests. Blum will be
accused by the men who yielded
France to the invading Nazi
armies.
T JOURNEY TO
II. S. AT PRESENT
London (WNS) Dr. Chaim
Weizmann, president of the Jew-
ish Agency for Palestine, this
week postponed his scheduled
departure for the United States
after receiving word from the
British Air Ministry that his
youngest son. Michael, a Royal
Air Force pilot, had failed to re-
turn from a patrol assignment.
Dr. Weizmann. who was ac-
companied by his wife, imme-
diately returned to London from
the air field where he was sche-
duled to board a plane for Lis-
bon on the first leg of the jour-
ney to the United States.
While details of the younger
Weizmann's assignment were
withheld, it was understood that
he had been sent on a reconnais-
sance flight to Brest shortly be-
fore the Nazi battleships Scharn-
horst and Gneisenau steamed out
of the French port into the Eng-
lish channel. Lieutenant Michael
Weizmann, 24, was in command
of a fighter plane.

With joint sponsorship by
three of the major organizations
in the city of Miami, Shriners,
Elks and Young Men's Hebrew
Association, one of the most elab-
orate Night of Stars ever pre-
sented is scheduled for March 3.
"The midnight performance at
the Olympia Theatre will have
every star of the stage, screen
and radio who is in this vicinity
at the show, "Herman Waitsman,
chairman of the committee, in an
interview stated. "A surprise is
in store when the announcement
will be made as to the Master of
Ceremonies. He will be one of
the outstanding stars of the day.
I would advise everyone to make
reservations early as this show
will be a complete sell-out. We
are making history in Miami be-
cause three of the outstanding or-
ganizations in this area are join-
ing to make this affair one of the
outstanding successes of its kind
ever held in this city."
Other officers include first
vice-chairman. Milo Coffrin; sec-
ond vice-chairman, Hon. Val
Cleary; secretary. Maurice Gross-
man; ticket chairman, Robert C.
Booth; treasurer, E. E. Westman;

Cliff Reeder is honorary chair-
man of the event.
POLISH REFUGEE
DESCRIBES NA/I
CRIMES TO JEWS
Moscow (WNS)Soviet For-
eign Commissar Molotov in a re-
cent speech enumerated the
crimes committed by the Nazis
against the Russian civilian pop-
ulation, including the massacre
of 52,000 Jews in Kiev, which,
Molotov said, the Russian people
will never forget and which will
be avenged at the earliest op-
portunity.
This week the Moscow press,
publishing an eye-witness ac-
Lieut. Weizmann's plane was count of Nazi barbarity against
NAZI AGENTS RESPONSIBLE
FOR N. Y. VANDALISM ACTS
New York (WNS)Nazi van-
dals were held responsible for
fires which broke out simultan-
eously this week in Temple
Emanu-El and in the home of the
congregation's rabbi, Dr. Isaac A.
Millner, in Port Richmond, Sta-
ten Island. Police and Fire De-
partment officials launched an of-
ficial investigation immediately.
Dr. Millner told police that
Nazi elements in the community
had been incensed by a series of
anti-Nazi articles written by the
rabbi last year for the Staten Is-
land Advance, a local newspaper.
The fires caused little damage.
last heard from when the radio
operator reported that engine
trouble had developed when the
aircraft was over the Atlantic. A
few days earlier, the young RAF
officer had been granted a 24-
hour leave to bid his parents
good-bye prior to their departure
for the United States.
News of Lieut. Weizmann's
failure to return to his base was
"flashed to the air field five min-
utes before Dr. and Mrs. Weiz-
mann were scheduled to board
the Lisbon-bound plane. They
cancelled their passage and rush-
ed back to London to await furth-
er developments.
Dr. Weizmann had always
thought of his youngest son, a
promising chemist, as his suc-
cessor in the vital chemical re-
search work now conducted by
Dr. Weizmann at the request of
the British Government. Early in
the present war, as in the first
world war, Dr. Weizmann placed
his skill at the disposal of the
British Government.
the Jews which was related by
a Pole who managed to escape
from Lodz in Nazi-occupied Po-
land, added several crimes to
Commissar Molotov's list.
While the Polish refugee's story
was one of unbelievable horror
and brutality, one incident stood
out as typifying the Nazi treat-
ment of Jews in occupied Poland.
According to the report, two
Nazi soldiers seized an aged Jew
in the streets of Lodz, tied his
hands behind his back and set
fire to his beard. Screaming with
agony, the Jew, by throwing him-
self against the walls of nearby
buildings, was able to snuff out
the fire.
Whereupon, the German sold-
iers again set fire to the Jew's
beard and watched him jump
with agony until he fell into a
dead faint. This story, the Mos-
cow press said, will not be for-
gotten.

KING'S..^^
KOMMENTS ^siSscS;
The views expressed do not necessarily represent the editorial
opinion of The Jewish Floridian
In our many clubs and organizations
Making fusses and exaggerations
There are many problems internal
All very damned and infernal
And our dear public it is true
Sees only what they view
Which most times looks good
On the surface as usually should
But down below and deep
Are things 'twould make you creep
And right in our loved town
That upon which we frown
And King knows for a fact
A statement he'll not retract
Of at least five different groups
The lowdown would make real scoops
Between themselves they're fighting
Not realizing who they're spiting
A budget's the headache of one
A program the other has none
Bull headed the exec of another
Whose actions the committee would smother
And so on straight down the line
Could even count as many as nine
And King does pause to meditate
Thoughts herein to place, not hesitate
And the hints thereby taken
Those people who need itawaken.
Those in the know will get
what King means and those
who don't wont have much
trouble finding outbut from
all the noise round town this
week regarding the internal
dissension among our major
organizations. King doesn't
have much fear that the new
zoo on the causeway will have
much trouble filling their mon-
key cagesfor that is what a
lot of people made of them-
selves this week.
In the service and yet out is
the position the young rabbi of
the local reform congregation
finds himself. He has been rather
active and rendering valuable
service in the U. S. War Dept.
through his knowledge of seven
languages.
An Ethopian brother has
caused much consternation put-
ting in appearances rather
regularly at one of the synago-
gues.
A masterpiece is what the opin-
ion handed down by the judges
in the recent cantor-synagogue
arbitration has been termed by
all who have read it copies
are on file. This procedure is
somewhat new in these annals.
RABBINICAL ASSOCIATION
RECOGNIZED BY STATE
LETTER REVEALS
HUMILIATIONS
OF 147 REFUGEES
New York (WNS)From the
seaport city of Barranquilla, Co-
lombia, came the story this week
of 147 men, women and children
who were rescued from "years of
humiliations and tortures"
through the efforts of the Joint
Distribution Committee. The
story was revealed in a letter
written by two of the refugees in
Barranquilla to the New York of-
fice of the JDC.
In their letter the two refugees,
Hans H. and Sigmund H., speak-
ing for the entire group of 147.
said that they wished to "express
our gratitude to the JDC" and
that "as soon as possible all of us
will surely try to prove these
feelings by deeds."
The refugee group arrived in
Colombia recently, after many
months of hardship and wander-
ings. Mostly emigrants from Ger-
many and Austria, they held visas
for Colombia, Ecuador. Peru and
Bolivia.
When they reached Cuba on
their way to South America they
found that they were stranded.
Passage through the Panama
Canal or even by air over the
Canal Zone was barred to Ger-
man nationals by wartime re-
strictions. There was no other
mode of transportation to enable
them to reach the countries on
the west coast of South America
for which most of them held pass-
ports. They were held in Tiscor-
nia, the "Ellis Island" of Cuba.
The JDC immediately set about
rescuing them from their plight.
It finally arranged for the 'S.
S. Cuba." sailing from Havana,
to change its itincapry and carry
the group directly to Barran-
quilla, in Colombia, which is on
the Atlantic ocean and could
therefore be reached without tra-

Miss Bess Spanner, execu-
tive secretary of the Miami
Section. National Council
Jewish Women, was in re-
ceipt last week of a letter
from London in which the
writer thanked Miss Spanner
and the Council office for
clothing they received. Inter-
esting to note throughout the
letter was the high quality
of morale expressed by the
writer and the relation of the
devastation and the horror the
people are suffering and un-
dergoing. The writer stated
that they are only one of
hundreds and thousands un-
dergoing these horrors and
they trust that we in Ameri-
ca will be spared. The mes-
sage contains word of appre-
ciation for the assistance
Council and other similar or-
ganizations have and are ex-
tending.
London (WNS) The Nazi
Commissioner for occupied Hol-
land this week ordered the con-
fiscation of all valuable object,
particularly metal ornaments, in
synagogues and other Jewish in-
stitutions.

DISUNITY
The Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi League in a
report this week revealed that despite the na-
tional emergency, many oi the dispensers of
anti-Semitic wares are still carrying on their
business as usual. In particular, the League
draws attention to a certain Lieutenant-General
Count Cherep-Spiridovich. This Lieutenant-
General, etc. is president of what he calls a
Mission in the Bronx from which he distributes
anti-Semitic literature. Another who is very
busy at the same work is a Col. Sanctuary
who sends forth such books as "The Hoy Sea
and the Jews," and "The Talmud Unmasked."
It appears to us that it is time the Govern-
ment looked into the job of unmasking Col.
Sanctuary and see just how much holiness
there is in this Sanctuary.
These men carrying on their poisonous
labors at this time when the nation faces the
greatest peril in its history can be regarded
only as the agents of the country's enemy. The
United States is a democratic government and
does not like the idea of concentration camps :
even for such men as Col. Sanctuary, but we '
remember that even the gentle Abraham Lin- !
coin was forced during the war to send Val- !
landingham who was breeding disunity in the j
north, into the ranks of the enemy. Why should
we not send the Lieutenant-General and the
Colonel into the ranks of the Axis. It should
even be gratifying to them, for then they would
be among people whose ideas are like their
own.
The week intervening between the birth-
days of the two greatest AmericansLincoln
and Washington has been set aside as Broth-
erhood Week and this, it seems to us, is a I
fitting time to take stock of these people to |
v.-hom every week is Disunity Week.
LET THEM HELP
A serious shortage exists today in our
medical reserves. There is a crying need for
doctors which is increasing as the armed forces
drain the medical offices, universities and hos-
pitals of the younger doctors.
That the situation is grave in evidenced
by the fact that the New York Times has com-
mented in two editorials in as many weeks of
this shortage and has advised the use of the
skills of the refugee physicians now in the U. S.
It has been estimated that there are 5,000
refugee doctors who have emigrated to Ameri-
ca since Hitler's assumption to power in Ger-
( many. Apparently none of the obstacles now
standing in their way are insurpassable .
English can be taught, hospital facilities opened
to them and their presence in the U. S. is, in
itself, a testament to their loyalty.
The Times suggested that a plan to place
these doctors in rural communities might effect
a solution. But whatever must be done, it seems
a shame to waste the skills of those who are
so eager to help at a time when the need is
so great.
TRIBUTE TO FIGHTERS
It has become even clearer as to why the
Nazis are broadcasting excuses for their mon-
strous treatment of Jewish war prisoners. While
they whimper that Jews sniped at their soldiers,
the entire Soviet press paid great tribute to the
valor and courage of Jewish "guerilla" fighters
who remained behind Nazi lines organizing
raids against military posts.
Among those who remained were women
and girls and it is to be expected that their
treatment was none the lighter at the hands
of the Nazis. It is a tribute to their peerless
valor that the entire press took occasion to
laud their actions in a war where bravery is
an everyday matter of fact.
The Nazi whimper in the night then is a
revealing insight into the effectiveness of these
fighters. Their plaint of "uncivilized warfare"
directed against the Jews might better be called
too effective warfare. And even their whimper
and snivlings are good signs that they are be-
ginning to ache all over from the many blows
inflicted from every side.
PLIGHT OF JEWRY
15 REFLECTED IN
1941 STATISTICS
Zurich (WNSiThe plight of
Polish Jewry, living for more
than two years under the Nazi
regime, was reflected in all its!
tragedy and bitterness in mar-1
riage and birth certificates for |
the year 1941 which were re-
vealed here this week by a usu-
ally reliable .Polish diplomat.
The diplomat reported that in
the year 1941 only 500 Jewish
couples in Poland were married.
In the years before the Nazi in-
vasion of Poland there were an
average of 19,000 Jewish wed-
dings yearly in Poland. These
figures take on added signific-
ance when it is realized that
there are more than 2,000.000
Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland.
Of the 500 Jewish marriages
that took place in Poland last
year, 150 were in the Warsaw-
ghetto and the remainder in va-
rious parts of Poland. The diplo-
mat attributed the rapidly fall-
ing marriage rate among young
Polish Jews to intensified per-
secution, starvation and incredi-
ble poverty.
The tragedy of Jewish life in
Poland was reflected also in the
record of Jewish births in Lodz,
which may be accepted as typical
of all Jewish centers in Poland.
In the last three months of 1941,
eight Jewish children were born
in Lodz, which has a Jewish
population m re than 75.000.
Normally. T5o Jewish children
were born during a three-month
period.
While Jewish marriage and
birth rates continue to fall rapid-
ly, the rate of Jewish deaths in
Poland has risen to fearful pro-
portions. A recent report esti-
mated the number of Jewish
deaths in Warsaw alone last year
at more than 15.000.
SCHOOL OF THEATRE OFFER

The School of the Theatre, the
Fifteen, after two years of proven

tunity of association with their

EIGHTH CONFERENCE WILL

Funds are being completed and is
scheduled to be held in Chatta-

dent announced.

3.000 Jews in Paris were rounded
up by French police last week
and compelled to clear the streets

REFUGEES REICH
II TURKISH PORT
AFTER PERIL TRIP
Jerusalem (WNS)Its engines
and radio transmitter damaged
in a raging storm, the freighter
"Strume," built to carry 120 peo-
ple, has arrived at a Turkish port
with 769 Rumanian Jewish ref-
ugees aboard after a perilous
crossing during which two of the
refugees were driven insane.
The story of the flight of the
Jewish refugees on the crippled,
storm-tossed freighter became
known here with the receipt of a
cable from Istanbul urging the
Jewish Agency for Palestine to
secure permission for the home-
less refugees to enter Palestine.
Included among the 769 refu-
gees were many Jews who
, escaped from the ghetto in Czer-
novitz. capital of Bukovina, now
under the control of Nazi-Ruman-
ian troops. Their only hope now
is admittance to Palestine.
The ship's engines were dam-
aged at the height of a storm
in the Black Sea and water began
to pour into the vessel. The refu-
gees had to man the pumps day
jand night to keep the vessel
afloat.
Conditions aboard the over-
j crowded freighter defied descrip-
tion, according to one of the
refugees. No more than 20 of the
passengers were allowed to come
on deck for fresh air at one time
for fear that the ship would
capsize.

WAR ECHOES "
Anna Freudwho must be the sister of psychoanalysis
since she is the daughter of the father of that science-hoi
lust published a most fascinating report, chuck-full of human
interest, on the reactions of English children to the blitzkrieg ...
i Miss Freud is the director of the Hempstead, England, Health
Nursery Colony, which cares for blitzed-out children under the
Foster Parents' Plan It's a good fight that Trend of Events,
the weekly news letter brought out in this country by Meir
Grossman, is waging in behalf of the Jewish refugees from
Nazism whom an indiscriminate law plages in the "enemy
alien" category because of their German origin ... As Gross-
man points out, these victims of Hitler actually aren't "German
nations" any more, as the Nazis don't recognize Jews as citi-
zens Maybe it's wishful thinking, but Genevieve Tabouis,
' the French lady of letters now in this country, declares a split
between the Aryan and Mongolian segments of the Axis is in
the making, and that it will be with a refusal to attack Russia
that Hirohito will hit Hitler.
BRIGHT IDEAS
A prize of some kind should be handed out to the Daily
Mirror headline writer who, over a story concerning the mys-
terious illnesses and deaths of various Nazi generalsVon
Fritsch, Von Reichenau, Von Keitel, etc., etc.placed the cap-
tains: Generals Disappear, Von by Von Down in Miami,
informs a reporter, the latest fad is to buy golf balls bearing
caricatures of Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito Which is one
way of clubbing the Axis.
ZIONIST NEWS
The rumors about Pierre van Paassen's resignation from the
chairmanship of the Committee for a Jewish Army, which over-
zealous Zionists have been spreading most effectively, are
without foundation, since Van Paassen, who projected the pub-
lic activities in behalf of a Jewish Army before the Zionists took
it up, has agreed to remain at the head of that Committee de-
spite his heavy schedule of lectures and literary work ... A
group of disciples of the late philosopher and Zionist leader
Max Nordau, headed by Zionists Isaac Carmel and Morris
Weinberg, is making arrangements for the publication in book
form of Mme. Anna Nordau's reminiscences of her famous
husband Together with her daughter, artist and lecturer
Maxa Nordau, Mme. Nordau will supervise the preparation of
the English manuscript.
LITERARY DEPARTMENT
Forthcoming biographies include the life story of Sarah
Bernhardt, by the French producer Louis Verneuil, who is now
in New York Verneuil, who is the grandson-in-law of the
Divine Sarah, is also planning a Free French theatre for Broad-
way this spring Zionist Abraham Goldberg's collection of
biographical studies and essays, entitled "Pioneers and Build-
ers," will soon appear in English, under the aegis of the Zion
Publishing House The 700-page volume will bring its read-
ers a fascinating and colorful panorama of the Jewish scene
of the last country ... a new volume of Old Testament stories
is promised soon by Elliot Paul, the well-known author, and an
advance notice informs us that, in order to make everything
kosher, he has Samson marry Delilah in his version of the
narrative We hope Mr. Paul doesn't forget to make some
disposition of Samson's first wife, the Philistine woman, lest he
cause the Biblical strong man to commit bigamy.
STAGE AND SCREEN
Orchids to Al Jolson, who, although not in the best of health,
has been touring the military camps, giving solo entertainment

EXMUFTI HEADS
FDR AFRICA TO
SHT TROUBLE
London (WNS)-The violently
n.i Semitic and pro-Nazi ex-
Mu U of Jerusalem Husseini has
",' Berlin and is proceeding to
he French colonies in North
Afri where he plans to organize
fn all-Moslem Congress for the
ourpose of promoting anti-Jewish
and anti-British sentiment among
the Arab populations, according
to authoritative French circles
here.
These sources said that the ex-
Mufn. who fled a step ahead of
the British from Iraq and Iran.
will make his headquarters in
French North Africa. His assign-
ment from Berlin, it was said.
was to foment an anti-Jewish and
anti-British revolt to coincide
with the anticipated Nazi offen-
sive in the Middle East.
* -Free French" representatives
laud that General Charles
De Gaulle was aware of the ex-
Mufti's movements and would
make every attempt to block the
arch anti-Semite's plans for an
Arab uprising.
Meanwhile, British authorities
admitted that a number of the
former Mufti's advisers, who has
escaped with their leader, had
been permitted to return to
Palestine. They said, however,
that only those considered "polit-
ically harmless" had been per-
mitted to return to the land
wh re they once plotted anti-
.' i and anti-British intrigues.
"The decision to allow harmless
followers of the ex-Mufti to re-
turn to Palestine does not de-
note any change in the British
policy towards Palestine or to-
wards the Arab people there," a
British spokesman explained.
"The other followers of the ex-
Mufti who were captured in Iraq
and Iran have been deported by
the British authorities for intern-
ment in a place the name of
Which cannot be divulged."
The spokesman denied reports
that the ex-Mufti's nephew, Ja-
mal Husseini, had been granted
permission to return to Palestine,
giving assurances that the young-
er Husseini was now being held
by the British.
been sponsoring affairs during
the past week, proceeds of which
have been turned over to the
Home.
Committee in charge of ar-
rangements for the luncheon arc
Mrs. Oscar Frankel, chairman, as-
sisted by Mrs. Janette Jacobs,
Mrs. Jessie Marcus and Mr. Harry
Saffer. Reservations may be
made through this committee.
An elaborate program of en-
tertainment has been planned
for the afternoon in which radio
and stage celebrities as well as
the shows from the local night
clubs will participate. Guest stars
will include Bonnie Fields, Sam-
mie Walsh, Emile Boreo, Frances
Faye, Lou Holtz and many others.
Stated as a most important
project in Miami and one about
which you rarely see items in the
press, is the Home in W. Flagler
Street. It is maintained by a self-
less group of people who devote
themselves to raising money
through private solicitation for
current expenses and expansion
as they go along.
In January of 1940 ten acres of
land within the city limits of
Miami were purchased. Five acres
are planted in citrus trees, or-
ange, grapefruit and lime, form-
ing a shady park-like setting.
In June of 1940 the first build-
ing was completed. This building
houses administration facilities in
addition to two dormitories for
children, providing 24 beds.
Early in 1941 a Research Lab-
oratory was completed and
equipped. This building, known
as the Rose Rothberg Laboratory,
is modern in building and equip-
ment.
Ten cottages are planned, two
of which are completed. These
units will care for sixteen chil-
dren each.
The Home is a pioneer in the
care and treatment of rheumatic
fever in the south.
The business affairs of the
Home are managed by a Board of
Trustees, assisted by an Advisory
Board.
A medical staff of recognized
physicians are in complete charge
of the health and well being of
the patients.
Chapters have been organized
in other states to help and carry
on this work, since all of the
children are from the north.
The Home was founded in 1937
as a non-profit, non-sectarian in-
stitution. Since that time it has
provided care for children af-
flicted with rheumatic fever and
rheumatic heart disease.
TROPICAL PARK HANDICAP
TO TOP SPRING PROGRAM
The $10,000 added Tropical
Handicap, mile and a furlong
test for 3-year-olds and upward,
which is the most important race
decided annually at Tropical
Park, will be the top number on
the 20-day Spring program. This
was announced today by H. L.
Straus, president of the Gables
Racing Association, Inc., in mak-
ing public the stake schedule for
Tropical P a r k's forthcoming
meeting.
The Tropical Handicap will be
renewed on April 10a Friday,
and final day of a session which
opens on Monday, March 9. In
all, six major events are on the
roster; these carry a total in add-
ed money of $32,500, an increase
since last Spring of $9,500. Nomi-
nations to all stakes close Satur-
day, March 7.
FROM THE
SWIVEL
CHAIR
William
I.
Boxerman
Christians and Jews, which is
sponsoring brotherhood celebra-
tions, addresses the following
message to "Men of Good Will"
... It is a message which Cath-
olics, Protestants, and Jews alike
would do well to heed in these
days of crisis and tribulation.
Men of good will;
"Resist every attempt to divide
our citizens along racial or re-
ligious lines;
Defend other cultural and re-
ligious groups against falsehood
or bigotry;
Realize that an attack on any
group is actually an attack on all
groups and on democracy;
Stop rumor and gossip by de-
manding the whole truth and are
not swayed by appeals to pre-
judice;
Insist that all others shall have
the rights and privileges that
they claim for themselves;
Gladly cooperate as American
citizens with those of other faiths
for the good of all;
Unite to uproot the propaganda
of hatred or fear wherever it is
planted;
Do not refuse employment to
any men or women because of
their religion or race;
Never allow racial or religious
consideration to determine their
votes;
Acknowledge that if we are
not brothers to all, we are not
brothers at all."
Gut shabbos!

INVITATIONS NOW GIVEN
DOG OWNERS OF FLORIDA
Invitations are now being ex-
tended to dog owners through-
out Florida for nominations of
greyhounds for the All Florida
Greyhound championship to be
run at the Biscayne dog track
the last week of racing in April.
This classic is open to any dog
from any track in Florida and
will be run for an added purse.
The eliminations will be run over
the 5-16ths mile distance and the
finals over the 1,815 foot Bis-
cayne course. All entries must
school at Biscayne and these
tests will be run between regular
races at night so that the public
may observe just how they per-
form. In all probability the an-
nual Biscayne Derby will be ad-
vanced to a date ahead of the
All-Florida derby so that the best
of Biscayne dogs can compete
against the visitors._____
DANISH~TBlis_EXPLAINS
WHY ANTI-SEMITISM FAILS
BAFNEY J. COHEN
f Orlando has been named
chairman of the city welfare
board of that city. He previously
spr\ d as a member for the past
year and has been active in the
City's civic and religious institu-
tions. He was recently re-elected
*s president of Congregation
Wnev Sholem for his tenth term.
Stockholm (WNS)-The Danish
press this week featured an arti-
cle explaining Denmark s refusal
to introduce the Nuremberg anti-
Jewish laws and the fact that he
anti-Semitic campaign has won
few supporters in that country.
Obviously aimed at the Nazis
who have been insisting on the
introduction of stringent anti-
Jewish laws, the article pointed
out that after the first world war.
fto Dannlsh people were ex-
tremely sympathetic to the Ger-
mans, many Danes adopting G
man children to save them from
starvation.
Hysteria and Witch-Hunts
We hear of a Jewish woman in
Miami becoming excited because
she saw what she thought was a
swastika scratched on a mail box
and immediately she jumped
to the conclusion that here was
a Nazi sympathizer.
Fifth column posssibilities
should not be overlooked. And
are not from the hundreds of tips
that are pouring in regularly for
checking. Out of them, a cer-
tain percentage turn out to have
real value. But those that do, are
of great importance to the wel-
fare of our country.
Our Jewish community must
be especially careful to avoid
hysteria and witch-hunts for it
may prove a boomerang against
the refugees in this country,
among who many are Jewish.
With this in mind, it is inter-
esting to note a news piece about
a young refugee who delivered
the class history upon her grad-
uation from high school at West
Point, Ga., this year The
refugee, Charlotte Dreyfuss,
wrote:
'You gave me courage when
courage was low and heart was
heavy ... I was a stranger and
you took me in You bade me
hope when I was despairing .
This gratitude will not be packed
away with class memories in the
book of yesterdays but it is writ-
ten in blazing headlines over the
records of now and will color the
volume of tomorrows with a soft
warm glow of love and apprecia-
tion for you."
And then there was 15-year-
old Lillian Blumenthal, who had
only been in the country for
about nine months when she won
a New York city-wide essay con-
test on "What It Means To Me To
Be An American!'
"How fortunate was I," she
wrote in part, "fortunate beyond
many others, to awaken from
that dream and to escape an un-
known and terrifying fate .
What it means to me to be an
American? ... It means every-
thing, everything! ... It means
JUSt-UMen" of Good Will .
During this week, the Miami
Round Table, in common with
similar groups throughout the
country, celebrates Brotherhood
Week ... Now is the time for
men of good will to build under-
standing and defeat intolerance
The National Conference of
Stockholm (WNS)A strong
denunciation of anti-Semitism,
enforced in Norway by the Nazis
with the aid of Premier Vidkun
Quisling, was made in a circular
letter issued by the Bishops of
Norway, it was reported here this
week.
The letter condemned the Nazi
anti-Jewish program as "un-
ethical" and as inimical to the
fundamentals of Christianity.
Jerusalem (WNS)The Pales-
tine Government, pressed for ac-
tion by the Jewish Agency, this
week announced that approxi-
mately 3,000 Jewish immigrants
will be permitted to enter the
country under the new immigra-
tion quota for Jews for the six-
month period ending March 31,
1942.
The new immigration quota,
announcement of which had been
expected as early as last October
1st, provides 1,200 immigration
certificates for Jewish heads of
families who will be allowed to
bring into the country with them
about 1,750 dependents. The Jew-
ish Agency had requested 6,000
certificates for this period.
(According to an announce-
ment made in New York by the
United Palestine Appeal, these
certificates will be used to res-
cue refugees, who fled before
Hitler's armies and are now
stranded in the Soviet Union,
India, Turkey, Afghanistan and
Iran, awaiting permission to con-
tinue to Palestine.)
It was expected here that an
additional 37,000 Jews would be
permitted to enter Palestine with-
in the next two years under the
provisions of the Command Paper
issued by the British Government
in May, 1939.
The Command Paper specified
that within five years, beginning
April 1, 1939, a total of 75.000
Jews would be admitted to the
Holy Land. Of this number, 50,000
were to be immigrants under the
labor quota and 25.000 refugees.
According to the Palestine
Government approximately 18.500
Jews entered the country "illeg-
ally" since April. 1939, in addi-
tion to 16,500 who came in as
legal immigrants. Making deduc-
tions for the so-called "illegals"
and counting the present quota,
there still remains about 37,000
immigration certificates to be
distributed by April, 1944.

fense Bonds yet?

During the day two very inter-

PPJDAY. FEBRUARY 20, 1942 +Jewishfk>rSdlian PAGE THREE KING'S. ^ ^ KOMMENTS ^siSscS; The views expressed do not necessarily represent the editorial opinion of The Jewish Floridian In our many clubs and organizations Making fusses and exaggerations There are many problems internal All very damned and infernal And our dear public it is true Sees only what they view Which most times looks good On the surface as usually should But down below and deep Are things 'twould make you creep And right in our loved town That upon which we frown And King knows for a fact A statement he'll not retract Of at least five different groups The lowdown would make real scoops Between themselves they're fighting Not realizing who they're spiting A budget's the headache of one A program the other has none Bull headed the exec of another Whose actions the committee would smother And so on straight down the line Could even count as many as nine And King does pause to meditate Thoughts herein to place, not hesitate And the hints thereby taken Those people who need it—awaken. Those in the know will get what King means and those who don't wont have much trouble finding out—but from all the noise round town this week regarding the internal dissension among our major organizations. King doesn't have much fear that the new zoo on the causeway will have much trouble filling their monkey cages—for that is what a lot of people made of themselves this week. In the service and yet out is the position the young rabbi of the local reform congregation finds himself. He has been rather active and rendering valuable service in the U. S. War Dept. through his knowledge of seven languages. An Ethopian brother has caused much consternation putting in appearances rather regularly at one of the synagogues. A masterpiece is what the opinion handed down by the judges in the recent cantor-synagogue arbitration has been termed by all who have read it copies are on file. This procedure is somewhat new in these annals. RABBINICAL ASSOCIATION RECOGNIZED BY STATE LETTER REVEALS HUMILIATIONS OF 147 REFUGEES New York (WNS)—From the seaport city of Barranquilla, Colombia, came the story this week of 147 men, women and children who were rescued from "years of humiliations and tortures" through the efforts of the Joint Distribution Committee. The story was revealed in a letter written by two of the refugees in Barranquilla to the New York office of the JDC. In their letter the two refugees, Hans H. and Sigmund H., speaking for the entire group of 147. said that they wished to "express our gratitude to the JDC" and that "as soon as possible all of us will surely try to prove these feelings by deeds." The refugee group arrived in Colombia recently, after many months of hardship and wanderings. Mostly emigrants from Germany and Austria, they held visas for Colombia, Ecuador. Peru and Bolivia. When they reached Cuba on their way to South America they found that they were stranded. Passage through the Panama Canal or even by air over the Canal Zone was barred to German nationals by wartime restrictions. There was no other mode of transportation to enable them to reach the countries on the west coast of South America for which most of them held passports. They were held in Tiscornia, the "Ellis Island" of Cuba. The JDC immediately set about rescuing them from their plight. It finally arranged for the 'S. S. Cuba." sailing from Havana, to change its itincapry and carry the group directly to Barranquilla, in Colombia, which is on the Atlantic ocean and could therefore be reached without traversing the Canal. From Barranquilla most of the refugees were transported to their final destination by plane, the only way of crossing the wild and mountainous interior of the continent. The plane journeys, as well as the forwarding of the refugees' baggage, were also arranged by the JDC. LETTER THANKS WOMEN'S COUNCIL FOR CLOTHING Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami has been recognized by the State Defense Council of Florida of which Gov. Spessard Holland is president, through the naming of Rabbi Jacob H. Kaplan, president of the Rabbinical Association, as member of the advisory committee on education. Colin English, State Superintendent of Public Instruction is chairman of this committee and other members include Dr. B. F. Ashe. H. P. Adair. Rev. Albert Kisling and Rev. Frank A. Juhan.

National Council Jewish Women, was in receipt last week of a letter from London in which the writer thanked Miss Spanner and the Council office for clothing they received. Interesting to note throughout the letter was the high quality of morale expressed by the writer and the relation of the devastation and the horror the people are suffering and undergoing. The writer stated that they are only one of hundreds and thousands undergoing these horrors and they trust that we in America will be spared. The message contains word of appreciation for the assistance Council and other similar organizations have and are extending. London (WNS) — The Nazi Commissioner for occupied Holland this week ordered the confiscation of all valuable object, particularly metal ornaments, in synagogues and other Jewish institutions. £ GOT READY HADASSAH NEWS Have you been doing your part for national defense?

As an example, he pointed out that a recent study of the social teachings of the religious bodies published by his organization showed that Protestants, Catholics and Jews agree to a "remarkable extent" as to the principles which should govern society and the relations that men should bear to one another. On seventeen specific subjects. Dr. Clinchy said, official pronouncement of Catholics, Jews and Protestants reveal "basic parallelisms and identiry of spirit and intent."

I PAPER ARTICLES Jerusalem (WNS) — M o s h e Shertok, head of the political department of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, issued a statement this week denouncing the New York Times editorial opposing the establishment of a Jewish Army in Palestine. Stating that the New York Times editorial has created "the most painful impression." among Palestine Jews. Mr. Shertok said: "The reasons that demand the establishment of a Jewish Army are twofold. First, the Jews were the first people attacked by Hitler and suffered more than any others at his hand. They have been called upon and are entitled to make their contribution to the allied war effort as a people. "Every allied nation, however small, from the Free Danes to the Druses of Syria and the Senusis of Libya, is fighting under its own flag and there is no reason why just Jews should be required to fight anonymously and subjected to the indignity of obliteration of their identity. "Secondly, only by the formation of a Jewish Army can the maximum Jewish enthusiasm and contribution to the allied war effort be elicited. The demand for the creation of a Jewish Army is not inspired by aggressive design against anyone but is merely a plea for fair play, equality and the greatest effort." "It is incomprehensible, Mr. Shertok stated, "that the New York Times should invoke the Atlantic Charter to support its anti-Zionist attitude, since the Charter pledges the Allied Nations to respect the right of all peoples to choose the form of government under which they will live. There can be no doubt of the resolution of the overwhelming majority of Jews to put an end to their present precarious position in the world." JEWISH CENTER WILL HONOR ITS FORMER FRENCH OFFICIALS FLEES FROM VICHY PRISON A testimonial dinner by the institution which he serves as president, will be tendered to Mayer H. Frankel by the Miami Beach Jewish Center at the Grossinger Hotel on Washington's birthday, Sunday evening, February 22nd. Elaborate preparations have been made for the M. H. FRANKEL evening which calls for nationally known stars and entertainers of the theatrical field on the program in addition to prominent figures in the national scene taking part. Mr. Frankel came to Miami Beach five years ago from New York City where he was recognized as one of the largest restauranteurs. Following long family tradition, he has been active in communal and civic endeavors his entire lifetime and following his residency here, was instrumental in formulating plans for the erection and was one of the founders of the Miami Beach Jewish Center. He is the institution's first president and has directed its expansion program which has included synagogue edifice and its complete equipment.

Hankoff, Abraham Halperin. Hyman Berman, Joseph A. Berman, Mrs. Helen Schoenfeld. Mrs. Isadore Newman and Mrs. Meyer Berman. London (WNS)—Isaac MendesFrance, Under Secretary of France in Leon Blum's Popular Front Cabinet and a member of a noted French Jewish family, reached London this week after escaping from a French military hospital. Mendes-France, the first French official to be court-martialled by a Vichy tribunal, had been sentenced to six years in prison on charges of desertion. Following France's surrender to Germany, Mendes-France, along with officials of the Reynaud Cabinet, fled to Morocco aboard the steamer Massilla. He was seized by Vichy officials in Casablanca and returned to France where he was placed on trial. Mendes-France arrived here a few days before the scheduled opening of the Riom trials at which Leon Blum, former Premier of France, will be accused of failing to safeguard France's national interests. Blum will be accused by the men who yielded France to the invading Nazi armies. T JOURNEY TO II. S. AT PRESENT London (WNS) —Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, this week postponed his scheduled departure for the United States after receiving word from the British Air Ministry that his youngest son. Michael, a Royal Air Force pilot, had failed to return from a patrol assignment. Dr. Weizmann. who was accompanied by his wife, immediately returned to London from the air field where he was scheduled to board a plane for Lisbon on the first leg of the journey to the United States. While details of the younger Weizmann's assignment were withheld, it was understood that he had been sent on a reconnaissance flight to Brest shortly before the Nazi battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau steamed out of the French port into the English channel. Lieutenant Michael Weizmann, 24, was in command of a fighter plane. NIGHT OF STARS TO BE PRESENTED .3 With joint sponsorship by three of the major organizations in the city of Miami, Shriners, Elks and Young Men's Hebrew Association, one of the most elaborate Night of Stars ever presented is scheduled for March 3. "The midnight performance at the Olympia Theatre will have every star of the stage, screen and radio who is in this vicinity at the show, "Herman Waitsman, chairman of the committee, in an interview stated. "A surprise is in store when the announcement will be made as to the Master of Ceremonies. He will be one of the outstanding stars of the day. I would advise everyone to make reservations early as this show will be a complete sell-out. We are making history in Miami because three of the outstanding organizations in this area are joining to make this affair one of the outstanding successes of its kind ever held in this city." Other officers include first vice-chairman. Milo Coffrin; second vice-chairman, Hon. Val Cleary; secretary. Maurice Grossman; ticket chairman, Robert C. Booth; treasurer, E. E. Westman; William Reed, Philip Berkowitz, Lincoln Baker, I. Apolin and E. Pallot on the committee. Hon. Cliff Reeder is honorary chairman of the event. POLISH REFUGEE DESCRIBES NA/I CRIMES TO JEWS Moscow (WNS)—Soviet Foreign Commissar Molotov in a recent speech enumerated the crimes committed by the Nazis against the Russian civilian population, including the massacre of 52,000 Jews in Kiev, which, Molotov said, the Russian people will never forget and which will be avenged at the earliest opportunity. This week the Moscow press, publishing an eye-witness acLieut. Weizmann's plane was count of Nazi barbarity against NAZI AGENTS RESPONSIBLE FOR N. Y. VANDALISM ACTS New York (WNS)—Nazi vandals were held responsible for fires which broke out simultaneously this week in Temple Emanu-El and in the home of the congregation's rabbi, Dr. Isaac A. Millner, in Port Richmond, Staten Island. Police and Fire Department officials launched an official investigation immediately. Dr. Millner told police that Nazi elements in the community had been incensed by a series of anti-Nazi articles written by the rabbi last year for the Staten Island Advance, a local newspaper. The fires caused little damage. last heard from when the radio operator reported that engine trouble had developed when the aircraft was over the Atlantic. A few days earlier, the young RAF officer had been granted a 24hour leave to bid his parents good-bye prior to their departure for the United States. News of Lieut. Weizmann's failure to return to his base was "flashed to the air field five minutes before Dr. and Mrs. Weizmann were scheduled to board the Lisbon-bound plane. They cancelled their passage and rushed back to London to await further developments. Dr. Weizmann had always thought of his youngest son, a promising chemist, as his successor in the vital chemical research work now conducted by Dr. Weizmann at the request of the British Government. Early in the present war, as in the first world war, Dr. Weizmann placed his skill at the disposal of the British Government. the Jews which was related by a Pole who managed to escape from Lodz in Nazi-occupied Poland, added several crimes to Commissar Molotov's list. While the Polish refugee's story was one of unbelievable horror and brutality, one incident stood out as typifying the Nazi treatment of Jews in occupied Poland. According to the report, two Nazi soldiers seized an aged Jew in the streets of Lodz, tied his hands behind his back and set fire to his beard. Screaming with agony, the Jew, by throwing himself against the walls of nearby buildings, was able to snuff out the fire. Whereupon, the German soldiers again set fire to the Jew's beard and watched him jump with agony until he fell into a dead faint. This story, the Moscow press said, will not be forgotten.

Managing Editor One S U B S C R I P T I O N Year, S2.00 Six Months SI.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. FEBRUARY 20, 1942 ADAR 3. 5702 VOLUME 15 NUMBER 8 -TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHEREMUetfy emvgidenticd DISUNITY The Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi League in a report this week revealed that despite the national emergency, many oi the dispensers of anti-Semitic wares are still carrying on their business as usual. In particular, the League draws attention to a certain Lieutenant-General Count Cherep-Spiridovich. This LieutenantGeneral, etc. is president of what he calls a Mission in the Bronx from which he distributes anti-Semitic literature. Another who is very busy at the same work is a Col. Sanctuary who sends forth such books as "The Hoy Sea and the Jews," and "The Talmud Unmasked." It appears to us that it is time the Government looked into the job of unmasking Col. Sanctuary and see just how much holiness there is in this Sanctuary. These men carrying on their poisonous labors at this time when the nation faces the greatest peril in its history can be regarded only as the agents of the country's enemy. The United States is a democratic government and does not like the idea of concentration camps : even for such men as Col. Sanctuary, but we remember that even the gentle Abraham Lin! coin was forced during the war to send Val! landingham who was breeding disunity in the j north, into the ranks of the enemy. Why should we not send the Lieutenant-General and the Colonel into the ranks of the Axis. It should even be gratifying to them, for then they would be among people whose ideas are like their own. The week intervening between the birthdays of the two greatest Americans—Lincoln and Washington has been set aside as Brotherhood Week and this, it seems to us, is a I fitting time to take stock of these people to | v.-hom every week is Disunity Week. LET THEM HELP A serious shortage exists today in our medical reserves. There is a crying need for doctors which is increasing as the armed forces drain the medical offices, universities and hospitals of the younger doctors. That the situation is grave in evidenced by the fact that the New York Times has commented in two editorials in as many weeks of this shortage and has advised the use of the skills of the refugee physicians now in the U. S. It has been estimated that there are 5,000 refugee doctors who have emigrated to America since Hitler's assumption to power in Ger( many. Apparently none of the obstacles now standing in their way are insurpassable English can be taught, hospital facilities opened to them and their presence in the U. S. is, in itself, a testament to their loyalty. The Times suggested that a plan to place these doctors in rural communities might effect a solution. But whatever must be done, it seems a shame to waste the skills of those who are so eager to help at a time when the need is so great. TRIBUTE TO FIGHTERS It has become even clearer as to why the Nazis are broadcasting excuses for their monstrous treatment of Jewish war prisoners. While they whimper that Jews sniped at their soldiers, the entire Soviet press paid great tribute to the valor and courage of Jewish "guerilla" fighters who remained behind Nazi lines organizing raids against military posts. Among those who remained were women and girls and it is to be expected that their treatment was none the lighter at the hands of the Nazis. It is a tribute to their peerless valor that the entire press took occasion to laud their actions in a war where bravery is an everyday matter of fact. The Nazi whimper in the night then is a revealing insight into the effectiveness of these fighters. Their plaint of "uncivilized warfare" directed against the Jews might better be called too effective warfare. And even their whimper and snivlings are good signs that they are beginning to ache all over from the many blows inflicted from every side. PLIGHT OF JEWRY 15 REFLECTED IN 1941 STATISTICS Zurich (WNSi—The plight of Polish Jewry, living for more than two years under the Nazi regime, was reflected in all its! tragedy and bitterness in mar-1 riage and birth certificates for | the year 1941 which were revealed here this week by a usually reliable .Polish diplomat. The diplomat reported that in the year 1941 only 500 Jewish couples in Poland were married. In the years before the Nazi invasion of Poland there were an average of 19,000 Jewish weddings yearly in Poland. These figures take on added significance when it is realized that there are more than 2,000.000 Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland. Of the 500 Jewish marriages that took place in Poland last year, 150 were in the Warsawghetto and the remainder in various parts of Poland. The diplomat attributed the rapidly falling marriage rate among young Polish Jews to intensified persecution, starvation and incredible poverty. The tragedy of Jewish life in Poland was reflected also in the record of Jewish births in Lodz, which may be accepted as typical of all Jewish centers in Poland. In the last three months of 1941, eight Jewish children were born in Lodz, which has a Jewish population • m re than 75.000. Normally. T5o Jewish children were born during a three-month period. While Jewish marriage and birth rates continue to fall rapidly, the rate of Jewish deaths in Poland has risen to fearful proportions. A recent report estimated the number of Jewish deaths in Warsaw alone last year at more than 15.000. SCHOOL OF THEATRE OFFER INDIVIDUAL I N S TRUCTION The School of the Theatre, the Fifteen, after two years of proven success in the professional theatre have announced the opportunity of association with their company to a limited number. Individual instructions for a period of twelve weeks training will be given. EIGHTH CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD IN CHATTANOOGA Plans for the eighth conference of the annual assembly of the Southeastern Region, Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds are being completed and is scheduled to be held in Chattanooga. Tenn. on March 28 and 29, Baron I. Hirsch Meyer, president announced. Geneva (WNS) — More than 3.000 Jews in Paris were rounded up by French police last week and compelled to clear the streets of snow, it was reported here. The Jews were given no compensation for their work. Defense Bonds are your surety for freedom—Buy some at your earliest opportunity. REFUGEES REICH II TURKISH PORT AFTER PERIL TRIP Jerusalem (WNS)—Its engines and radio transmitter damaged in a raging storm, the freighter "Strume," built to carry 120 people, has arrived at a Turkish port with 769 Rumanian Jewish refugees aboard after a perilous crossing during which two of the refugees were driven insane. The story of the flight of the Jewish refugees on the crippled, storm-tossed freighter became known here with the receipt of a cable from Istanbul urging the Jewish Agency for Palestine to secure permission for the homeless refugees to enter Palestine. Included among the 769 refugees were many Jews who escaped from the ghetto in Czernovitz. capital of Bukovina, now under the control of Nazi-Rumanian troops. Their only hope now is admittance to Palestine. The ship's engines were damaged at the height of a storm in the Black Sea and water began to pour into the vessel. The refugees had to man the pumps day jand night to keep the vessel afloat. Conditions aboard the overj crowded freighter defied description, according to one of the refugees. No more than 20 of the passengers were allowed to come on deck for fresh air at one time for fear that the ship would capsize. By PHINEAS J. BIRON __ WAR ECHOES Anna Freud—who must be the sister of psychoanalysis since she is the daughter of the father of that science-hoi lust published a most fascinating report, chuck-full of human interest, on the reactions of English children to the blitzkrieg ... i Miss Freud is the director of the Hempstead, England, Health Nursery Colony, which cares for blitzed-out children under the Foster Parents' Plan It's a good fight that Trend of Events, the weekly news letter brought out in this country by Meir Grossman, is waging in behalf of the Jewish refugees from Nazism whom an indiscriminate law plages in the "enemy alien" category because of their German origin ... As Grossman points out, these victims of Hitler actually aren't "German nations" any more, as the Nazis don't recognize Jews as citizens Maybe it's wishful thinking, but Genevieve Tabouis, the French lady of letters now in this country, declares a split between the Aryan and Mongolian segments of the Axis is in the making, and that it will be with a refusal to attack Russia that Hirohito will hit Hitler. BRIGHT IDEAS A prize of some kind should be handed out to the Daily Mirror headline writer who, over a story concerning the mysterious illnesses and deaths of various Nazi generals—Von Fritsch, Von Reichenau, Von Keitel, etc., etc.—placed the captains: Generals Disappear, Von by Von Down in Miami, informs a reporter, the latest fad is to buy golf balls bearing caricatures of Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito Which is one way of clubbing the Axis. ZIONIST NEWS The rumors about Pierre van Paassen's resignation from the chairmanship of the Committee for a Jewish Army, which overzealous Zionists have been spreading most effectively, are without foundation, since Van Paassen, who projected the public activities in behalf of a Jewish Army before the Zionists took it up, has agreed to remain at the head of that Committee despite his heavy schedule of lectures and literary work ... A group of disciples of the late philosopher and Zionist leader Max Nordau, headed by Zionists Isaac Carmel and Morris Weinberg, is making arrangements for the publication in book form of Mme. Anna Nordau's reminiscences of her famous husband Together with her daughter, artist and lecturer Maxa Nordau, Mme. Nordau will supervise the preparation of the English manuscript. LITERARY DEPARTMENT Forthcoming biographies include the life story of Sarah Bernhardt, by the French producer Louis Verneuil, who is now in New York Verneuil, who is the grandson-in-law of the Divine Sarah, is also planning a Free French theatre for Broadway this spring Zionist Abraham Goldberg's collection of biographical studies and essays, entitled "Pioneers and Builders," will soon appear in English, under the aegis of the Zion Publishing House The 700-page volume will bring its readers a fascinating and colorful panorama of the Jewish scene of the last country ... a new volume of Old Testament stories is promised soon by Elliot Paul, the well-known author, and an advance notice informs us that, in order to make everything kosher, he has Samson marry Delilah in his version of the narrative We hope Mr. Paul doesn't forget to make some disposition of Samson's first wife, the Philistine woman, lest he cause the Biblical strong man to commit bigamy.

•m LpAY, FEBRUARY 20. 1942 +Jet*isti fhrkMatt) PAGE SEVEN EXMUFTI HEADS FDR AFRICA TO SHT TROUBLE London (WNS)-The violently n.i Semitic and pro-Nazi exMu U of Jerusalem Husseini has £",' Berlin and is proceeding to he French colonies in North Afri where he plans to organize fn all-Moslem Congress for the ourpose of promoting anti-Jewish and anti-British sentiment among the Arab populations, according to authoritative French circles here. These sources said that the exMufn. who fled a step ahead of the British from Iraq and Iran. will make his headquarters in French North Africa. His assignment from Berlin, it was said. was to foment an anti-Jewish and anti-British revolt to coincide with the anticipated Nazi offensive in the Middle East. -Free French" representatives laud that General Charles De Gaulle was aware of the exMufti's movements and would make every attempt to block the arch anti-Semite's plans for an Arab uprising. Meanwhile, British authorities admitted that a number of the former Mufti's advisers, who has escaped with their leader, had been permitted to return to Palestine. They said, however, that only those considered "politically harmless" had been permitted to return to the land wh re they once plotted anti.' i and anti-British intrigues. "The decision to allow harmless followers of the ex-Mufti to return to Palestine does not denote any change in the British policy towards Palestine or towards the Arab people there," a British spokesman explained. "The other followers of the exMufti who were captured in Iraq and Iran have been deported by the British authorities for internment in a place the name of Which cannot be divulged." The spokesman denied reports that the ex-Mufti's nephew, Jamal Husseini, had been granted permission to return to Palestine, giving assurances that the younger Husseini was now being held by the British. been sponsoring affairs during the past week, proceeds of which have been turned over to the Home.

Stated as a most important project in Miami and one about which you rarely see items in the press, is the Home in W. Flagler Street. It is maintained by a selfless group of people who devote themselves to raising money through private solicitation for current expenses and expansion as they go along. In January of 1940 ten acres of land within the city limits of Miami were purchased. Five acres are planted in citrus trees, orange, grapefruit and lime, forming a shady park-like setting. In June of 1940 the first building was completed. This building houses administration facilities in addition to two dormitories for children, providing 24 beds. Early in 1941 a Research Laboratory was completed and equipped. This building, known as the Rose Rothberg Laboratory, is modern in building and equipment. Ten cottages are planned, two of which are completed. These units will care for sixteen children each. The Home is a pioneer in the care and treatment of rheumatic fever in the south. The business affairs of the Home are managed by a Board of Trustees, assisted by an Advisory Board. A medical staff of recognized physicians are in complete charge of the health and well being of the patients. Chapters have been organized in other states to help and carry on this work, since all of the children are from the north. The Home was founded in 1937 as a non-profit, non-sectarian institution. Since that time it has provided care for children afflicted with rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease.

FROM THE SWIVEL CHAIR William I. Boxerman Christians and Jews, which is sponsoring brotherhood celebrations, addresses the following message to "Men of Good Will" ... It is a message which Catholics, Protestants, and Jews alike would do well to heed in these days of crisis and tribulation. Men of good will; "Resist every attempt to divide our citizens along racial or religious lines; Defend other cultural and religious groups against falsehood or bigotry; Realize that an attack on any group is actually an attack on all groups and on democracy; Stop rumor and gossip by demanding the whole truth and are not swayed by appeals to prejudice; Insist that all others shall have the rights and privileges that they claim for themselves; Gladly cooperate as American citizens with those of other faiths for the good of all; Unite to uproot the propaganda of hatred or fear wherever it is planted; Do not refuse employment to any men or women because of their religion or race; Never allow racial or religious consideration to determine their votes; Acknowledge that if we are not brothers to all, we are not brothers at all."

This classic is open to any dog from any track in Florida and will be run for an added purse. The eliminations will be run over the 5-16ths mile distance and the finals over the 1,815 foot Biscayne course. All entries must school at Biscayne and these tests will be run between regular races at night so that the public may observe just how they perform. In all probability the annual Biscayne Derby will be advanced to a date ahead of the All-Florida derby so that the best of Biscayne dogs can compete against the visitors. DANISH~TBlis EXPLAINS WHY ANTI-SEMITISM FAILS BAFNEY J. COHEN f Orlando has been named chairman of the city welfare board of that city. He previously sp r\ d as a member for the past year and has been active in the City's civic and religious institutions. He was recently re-elected *s president of Congregation Wnev Sholem for his tenth term. Stockholm (WNS)-The Danish press this week featured an article explaining Denmark s refusal to introduce the Nuremberg antiJewish laws and the fact that he anti-Semitic campaign has won few supporters in that country. Obviously aimed at the Nazis who have been insisting on the introduction of stringent antiJewish laws, the article pointed out that after the first world war. fto Dannlsh people were extremely sympathetic to the Germans, many Danes adopting G man children to save them from starvation. Hysteria and Witch-Hunts We hear of a Jewish woman in Miami becoming excited because she saw what she thought was a swastika scratched on a mail box —and immediately she jumped to the conclusion that here was a Nazi sympathizer. Fifth column posssibilities should not be overlooked. And are not from the hundreds of tips that are pouring in regularly for checking. Out of them, a certain percentage turn out to have real value. But those that do, are of great importance to the welfare of our country. Our Jewish community must be especially careful to avoid hysteria and witch-hunts for it may prove a boomerang against the refugees in this country, among who many are Jewish. With this in mind, it is interesting to note a news piece about a young refugee who delivered the class history upon her graduation from high school at West Point, Ga., this year The refugee, Charlotte Dreyfuss, wrote: 'You gave me courage when courage was low and heart was heavy ... I was a stranger and you took me in You bade me hope when I was despairing This gratitude will not be packed away with class memories in the book of yesterdays but it is written in blazing headlines over the records of now and will color the volume of tomorrows with a soft warm glow of love and appreciation for you." And then there was 15-yearold Lillian Blumenthal, who had only been in the country for about nine months when she won a New York city-wide essay contest on "What It Means To Me To Be An American!' "How fortunate was I," she wrote in part, "fortunate beyond many others, to awaken from that dream and to escape an unknown and terrifying fate What it means to me to be an American? ... It means everything, everything! ... It means JUSt U Men" of Good Will During this week, the Miami Round Table, in common with similar groups throughout the country, celebrates Brotherhood Week ... Now is the time for men of good will to build understanding and defeat intolerance The National Conference of Stockholm (WNS)—A strong denunciation of anti-Semitism, enforced in Norway by the Nazis with the aid of Premier Vidkun Quisling, was made in a circular letter issued by the Bishops of Norway, it was reported here this week. The letter condemned the Nazi anti-Jewish program as "unethical" and as inimical to the fundamentals of Christianity. Jerusalem (WNS)—The Palestine Government, pressed for action by the Jewish Agency, this week announced that approximately 3,000 Jewish immigrants will be permitted to enter the country under the new immigration quota for Jews for the sixmonth period ending March 31, 1942. The new immigration quota, announcement of which had been expected as early as last October 1st, provides 1,200 immigration certificates for Jewish heads of families who will be allowed to bring into the country with them about 1,750 dependents. The Jewish Agency had requested 6,000 certificates for this period. (According to an announcement made in New York by the United Palestine Appeal, these certificates will be used to rescue refugees, who fled before Hitler's armies and are now stranded in the Soviet Union, India, Turkey, Afghanistan and Iran, awaiting permission to continue to Palestine.) It was expected here that an additional 37,000 Jews would be permitted to enter Palestine within the next two years under the provisions of the Command Paper issued by the British Government in May, 1939. The Command Paper specified that within five years, beginning April 1, 1939, a total of 75.000 Jews would be admitted to the Holy Land. Of this number, 50,000 were to be immigrants under the labor quota and 25.000 refugees. According to the Palestine Government approximately 18.500 Jews entered the country "illegally" since April. 1939, in addition to 16,500 who came in as legal immigrants. Making deductions for the so-called "illegals" and counting the present quota, there still remains about 37,000 immigration certificates to be distributed by April, 1944.
