the population of Nazi-occupied

Jews to appear in public without
a yellow Star of David on their

The Dutch broadcast said: "Re-

Holland will be compelled to
wear the Star of David when ap-
pearing in public. We have not
received definite confirmation.

you will see through this mali-

Lieut. Nininger. an officer of
the Phillipine Scouts, was killed
in action on the peninsula, Jan.
12th, 1942. With his posthumus
award of the first Congressional
Medal of Honor of the war went
a citation for "conspicious gal-
lantry and intrepidity above and
beyond the call of duty." And
behind those official words lies
a story as inspiring as any our
army has ever known.
There had been a lull that day
in the sector occupied by Lieut.
Nininger's own company, but an
outfit down the line a bit was
counter-attacking fiercely against
heavy odds to win back a point
of ground that had been lost.
So Nininger attached himself to
the lads who needed help, blazed
away with rifle and hand gre-,
nades, ripped and slashed at close
quarters with his bayonet, and
got through the Jap line. He,
picked one Jap sharpshooter after
another out of the treetops,;
blasted whole groups of Japs with .
grenades as they hulled in shell
craters. He ranged behind the |
enemy lines, striking with the

as "the Hitler of France." has

Jewish Affairs by Pierre Laval,
the new pro-Nazi dictator of
France, according to reports re-

The appointment of Darquier
de Pellepoix to succeed the Pe-

one of several steps taken by
Laval to intensify the anti-Jewish
campaign in unoccupied France.

France was ordered speeded up.
The new Commissioner, former
editor of the anti-Semitic news-

A MESSAGE FROM THE
In a nation at war "spend-
ing as usual" is as dangerous
as "business as usual." We
can't have all we want for
ourselves and still give our
millions of men in arms the
weapons they need. Nearly
ten million Americans are now
cutting down spending and
buying War Savings Bonds in-
stead, but with the war cost-
ing 120 million dollars every
day, ten million savers are
not enough. All of us have got
to save and buy Bonds on a
vastly greater scale.
All of us have got to think
war and act war in our per-
All of us who get a regular
income should set aside at
least ten percent of it every
payday for War Savings
Bonds, and those who have
been earning especially high
pay in the war industries are
going to set aside even more.
The most convenient way to
do this is through the Payroll
Savings Plan, under which an
employee authorizes his em-
ployer to set aside a certain
percentage of his pay for
Bonds. If you are not doing
this already, one of your first
jobs in the war is to sign up
tomorrow; if you have signed
up already, then one of your
first jobs in the war is to in-
crease the amount of your sav-
ings every pay day.

At the same time, the Anton-
escu Government is compelling
all Rumanian Jews to sign a de-
claration which reads: "I am re-

The removal of Jews from Ru-
mania's industry and commerce

AN INDIVIDUAL'S OBLIGATION
As timely today as when written in Feb-
ruary are the remarks of a young man who
had worked for a large company in New York
City for a number of years, attaining an en-
viable position and despite all he had worked
for and the great progress towards a success-
ful career he had achieved, he chose to leave
his lucrative post to volunteer his services for
the defense of his country.
The evening before leaving he turned over
to Herman Younglieb, president of A. B. Lan-
dau, a national advertising agency, a type-
written copy of a letter to his family with these
"I have jotted dcwn a few things that rep-
resent my true feelings. If you can make use
of it all right but without my name, for it may
give others an example I believe they should
The contents of the letter read:

As many of you know, my enforced ab-

armed service of America. There is no un-
usual heroism behind this resolve. For
many years I have realized that the day

Now at last the final pretense, the ulti-

naked against a monster that threatens
every second of our lives. If there is one
ttle thing that I can be complimented for
it is merely that I see clearly what we are
up against and am no longer fooling n\.
with childishly impossible hopes. Our way
of life is challenged. Either we beat down
the challcncc or we accept Nazism. Here
are the alternatives Nazism or some
modified form of the society we have known
in this country. Mind you I don't believe
that we will ever again see the easy demo-
cratic society that we now have and I cer-
tainly don't know what kind of society we
will have even when we do win. But what-

pened in the once civilized lands of Central
Europe you would understand how close
we are being forced into barbarism.
We can and we will avoid the worst of
this. We can and we will win. But it
won't be done by wishing or asking some-
one else to fight for us. It will only be done
when each of us recognizes his duty and
forgets all other considerations.
The day after war was declared, the
President spoke of the privilege we enjoy.
I thought of that day until I understood how
great this privilege actually could be. Ours
is the privilege that the people of Norway
and Greece and Checho-Slovakia were
denied. Ours is the privilege of defending
ourselves and what we believe in. I. for
. am grabbing hold of that privilege and
pursuing it as long as there is means left in
mi to do so. If I make any sacrifices they
are speedily forgotten in the light of this
Eacli one of us must, of course, under-
stand and reason these things out for him-
self. If we are honest with ourselves and
not ashamed to say and do things merely
because no one else is saying them, then
I feel certain that very soon we will all be
doing our part. And don't be mislead. There
is a job for everyone. Young and old we
all have a stake and a part in this conflict.
Find your place, help your dear ones find
.r place, and let us once and for all for-
get selfish interests until the overall inter-
est of everyone is safe.
One more thing, especially for all you
mothers. Yours is the most difficult role
and therefore the most demanding. You'll
find jobs to do I'm sure but there is an even
greater responsibility on your shoulders.
You must give courage and help to your
children. You must relieve them of the
most terrifying worry:worn- about how
you are taking it. You mus"t not expect
them to be exceptions and you must not let
them think that your faith is for an instant
shaken. I've talked about this to my own
mother. Two of us are already attempting
to get into the service: Ted ha's enlisted in
Naval Reserve and Sid is only restrained
with difficulty, as he now accepts the great
responsibility of keeping our family to-
pe'' er.eaging in an extremelv" vital
defense duty. I know Mother will somehow
find the strenth to keep her own emotions
in check and to help us protect her and vou
and ourselves and this wav of life. Will vou
all do that0
There is much more that I could
much more that is in my heart and mind
And I know that most of what I have tried
write to you is neither new nor foreign to
your own theuehts. Let it be sufficient for
us all to know that we are- as one in a great

play in this struggle of survival cannot be un-
derestimated or over emphasized.

It seems that you can find anything in the Bible if you just
look hard enough Here's columnist Neal O'Hara with this
bit from Isaiah: "In that day the Lord will fake away their
round tires like the moon" Last Sunday, at the banquet
given in his honor, Pierre van Paassen was presented with a
seventeenth-century Hebrew Bible by the Committee for a
Jewish Army Van Paassen collects old Bibles, and has a
very impressive array of them in his home Well-named is
"The Pocket Companion." the latest two-bit collection of stories,
poems, etc. This department is of course particularly in-
terested in a long prose poem by the Biblical writer whom we
know as the Preacher Other Jewish authors represented
in the volume are Max Beerbohm and Louis Untermeyer ... A
not unexpected Biblical flavor strikes you also when you in-
spect the newly published Volume Six of the Universal Jewish
Encyclopedia, which opens with the name of Jabal, Biblical
ancestor of "such as dwell in tents," and closes with the biog-
raphy of Elijah ben Asher Halevi Ashkenazi Levita, author of
the famous concordance "Sefer Hazichronoth" Levita, in-
cidentally, is regarded as the founder of the modem study of
Hebrew grammar, and was the teacher of many prominent
Christian Hebraists of early sixteenth-century Italy ... He was
even invited by King Francis I to occupy a chair of Hebrew at
the university at Paris, but declined on the grounds that, as
a Jew, he did not care to have an exception made in his case
to the rule, then in force in France, prohibiting any Jew from
sojourning in that country even temporarily .

the London Jewish Chronicle
pointed out this week in calling
for British sanction of a Jewish

The Jewish Chronicle stated
that the present coal shortage
could he attributed to the fact
that thousands of miners had
been drafted into the armed
forces for military duty through-
out the world. Establishment
of a Jewish Army, the Jewish
Chronicle added, would permit
the release of many of these

more than a thousand people who
were guests of the Y. M. H. A. at
its 9th Annual Bazaar and Festi-
val. Besides the many features
and attractions that were enjoyed
by the gathering, a special treat
was offered when all candidates
seeking office in city, county and

their future officials. Joseph A.

sessions of the Y. M. H. A. will
commence Monday morning, June
15th. at 9 o'clock. Maurice Gross-
man, executive director, announ-
ces that this year a large enroll-
ment is expected due to the fact
that many families will not so-
journ to the north for their usual
vacation. Additional facilities
have been added at the "Y" and
many new projects will be fea-
tured. Dr. I. H. Schwartz, re-
cently appointed director of phy-
sical education of the "Y", will
be in charge of the athletic pro-
gram. Other items to be featured
will be arts and crafts, nature
study, music, tap and ballet
dancing, picnics and many other
features which are now in the
process of arranging.
Enrollment will be limited.
Mr. Grossman urges everyone to
register immediately. A weekly
tuition will be charged for those
who can afford to pay. Scholar-
ships are maintained for those
children whose parents arc unable
to pay the regular tuition fee.
Communicate with Mr. Grossman
at once for further details.
With the advent of the warm
weather, the "Y" has started its
annual diamondball practice un-
der the leadership of Frank Rose,
manager of the diamondball
team. Last Tuesday night, in a
practice game, the "Y" defeated
the Miami Water Works by a
score of 7 to 4. Mr. Rose reports
that over forty people have come
out for practice.

ment. This project is aimed to
keep men, women and children,
young and old, physically fit and
mentally alert. The Y. M. H. A.
for the past several weeks has
participated in many conferences
preparing for the program. In
this program all organizations are
urged to encourage physical
training among their members.

NOW IN FIFFTEENTH YEAR
The Hebrew Medical Journal,
dedicated to the advancement of
Hebrew Medical literature, is
now entering its 15th year of suc-
cessful publication under the edi-
torship of Dr. Moses Einhorn of
New York. With the passing of
the years Harofe Haivri has
maintained a high standard of
service to the medical profession
and has gained the friendship
and the attention of doctors and
of laymen throughout the world.
War has curtailed the publica-
tion of Hebrew literature in Pal-
estine and in the Diaspora, so
that Harofe Haivri is the one
Hebrew medical journal to re-
main in existence. The history
of the Journal is one of contin-
ual growth and expansion, and
editors believe that Harofe Haivri
will continue to grow and to re-
cord material of permanent in-
terest to medical men every-
where, its editors state: The cur-
rent issue illustrates, our sincere
determination to carry on in this
period of stress and to render, in
so far as we are able, that same
service which has become tra-
ditional with our publication."
"It has become customary for
The Hebrew Medical Journal to
concentrate, in each issue, on
one problem closely related to the
Jewish people. Our last issue
contained a symposium on Dia-

NAZIS SAY JEWS HIDE DEAD
SO CAN USE RATION CARDS
Stockholm (WNS)Nazi news-
papers published in occupied Po-
land charged this week that a
"new wave of epidemics" has
broken out in Warsaw ghetto
because Jewish families are con-
cealing their dead in order to use
their ration cards.
The "Krakauer Zeitung
charged that "a new wave of
epidemics has broken out in the
Warsaw ghetto as a result of the
fact that Jews are hiding their
dead relatives in basements with-
out reporting them to the police.
The Nazi paper reported that the
Jewish Council in Warsaw has
been warned by the authorities
that the death penalty will be
invoked against Jews who fail
to report a death in the future.

Mr. Kopelowitz states that
there are over 700 1941 contribu-
tors who have not as yet contri-
buted in 1942. "We now have
over $117,000 through our Federa-

next few weeks we hope to in-
crease this figure to $120,000.
Our goal for this year is to raise
an additional $15,000 from the
date the drive closed in February
until the end of 1942."
Morris Klass, director of Fed-
eration, reports that more than
half of all 1942 pledges to the
Campaign have already been
paid. A committee under the
chairmanship of Monte Selig is
now being organized to visit all
contributors whose pledges are
now due. Payments of pledges
