Joint funeral services Tuesday afternoon at the Palmer Funeral Chapel were held for Irving, Esther Leopold, and child Stephen, murdered victims of probably Miami's most gruesome tr;ii;< dy, before an overflowing att< ndance that crowded the sidewalk. Having finished their Shabbos meal and sitting around in true family fashion, relaxing, resting and enjoying the Sabbath day of rest in their usual manner. Irving Leopold, his wife. Esther, and his legally adopted son were murdered last Friday evening by an assailant to this time still unknown. Shocking entire Miami and elsewhere as the news oi the nild-blooded killing spread, arousing sentiment of the determined populace, reiterated by law enforcement agencies, that no stone would be left unturned until the killer is caught and justice meted. Escaping, the murderer at the point of a gun, stopped the car of Ralph Morin, youth of 19. and forced him to drive him from the scene of the crime. Morin's body, likewise murdered, was found in the southwest section several links from the scene of the first crime shortly thereafter. living Leopold, 37, who resided with his family in an apartment above the newly constructed kosher meat and poultry markit in which he was half-owner. was found by the police alive but unconscious. He passed away Saturday morning. His wife and her child of a former marriage both died instantly from the bullets. A composite description of the killer was gathered from witnesses who had brief glimpses of Ins movements. Irving, as he was known to hundreds of customers and friends with whom he came in contact, came to Miami about eight years ago and after working as a butcher in one of the kosher markets went into business six years ago with Dave Kl her, as partners in the Miami Kosher Market. Located, until past May, on North West Fifth Street, both of them designed and supervised the eonstruction of the new market < n South West Eighth Street. Irving took the publisher of The Jewish Floridian soon after completion oi the new structure, through his home, an apartment located above the new store. He spoke of th convenience the new residence would be to him and spoke about his plans for furnishing. He was happy that he would be able, should he feel tired, to run upstairs to got a nap and how his wife wou'd be able to prepare hot lunches for him. He was happy, likewise, as he spoke about his expectant child which would have been born in November. Arrangements for the services were held up pending the arrival (CONTINUED ON PAGE 2) JWI PRESIDENT IN OPEN LETTER TO JEWRY OF Throush the courtesy of The Jewish Floridian. I take this moment to write to our fellow Jews of Greater Miami realizing their creat interest in carrying out one of the outstanding principles of our heritage—namely that "Tzdokoh"—Jewish Welfare, takes pr*j cedence in Jewish life. I accepted the presidency of the Jewish Welfare Bureau be%  cause I felt as an honest Jew if there is anything surgingly alive %  within us it should be an attitude : of benevolence and charitableness i toward fellow-Jews. There are some people in our j community to whom the problem ; of relief is a strain and a burden. "Why create the impression,"' say these people, "that the poor (physical or mental) in our midst present a new problem in Jewi ish life by speaking about it? Does not the Bible say, 'The poor I shall never cease out of the land?' This is an erroneous m(CONTINUEO ON PAGE 7) BI BUI B'RITH Swinging into full force. B'nai B'rith's scrap iron salvage committee has made headquarters for their campaign at the Adelmnn Pipe & Steel Company. 47 N. E. 25th Street. Assisting in the national campaign officially started by President Roosevelt, the lodge is assisting its members and Greater Miami Jewry in fulfilling their patriotic duty in gathering this salvage, small or large, to be put into use for war production. Emphasizing that no amount of scrap is too small or too large, the committee under the chairmanship of Louis Heiman. and assisted by William Boxerman, Nathan Adehnan. Louis Pallot, Mfred Stone and E. Albert Pallot asks that a call to either Mr leiman at 3-6391 or the B'nai B'rith office. 3-0751. Starting last Monday morning the drive netted 50,000 pounds at the close of Tuesday afternoon's collection. Those who wisn pavnent will be paid at the rate anlounccd by the Dade County Deense Council and all funds netted from the drive by scrap donaieu will be devoted to a worthy pariotic purpose by the Sholem Lodge B'nai B'rith organization. SUCCESSIVE TERN Receiving an unusual mark of recognition, Mrs. Lena Simon, active clubwoman of this city. was reappointcd for her second successive term as a member .if the District Welfare Board No. 9. by two governors. Completing her first appointment of four veins, serving at the request of former governor Fred P. Cone, her reapnointment by the present Governor Spessard L. Holland was announced this week. The Welfare Board, a stat agency, deals with requests and the giving of aid to those needing old-age assistance, aid to the blind and aid to dependent children, among its major objects. Mrs. Simon is at present ;: member of Temple Israel Sisterhood and Miami Jewish Or Ihodox Auxiliary. A member of the Miami Woman's Club and past matron of the Emunah Chapter 175 of the O. E. S.. she served as past Grand Warder of the Grand Chapter of Florida. O. E. S. She is a member of the board for the past eleven years of the American Children's Home and a member of the Council oi Social Agencies of this county. During her years of activity she has devoted part of her time to practically every' major endeavor in the area. She also belongs to the Anna Miller Circle. ,I"\\ ish War Veterans Auxiliary, and the Amaranth. As was pointed out in the last | column, it has always been the technique of the Christian Front to keep changing the names of its various units whenever any particular one receives too much discrediting publicity. ConseI quently. a new group in addition to the "Americans for Peace" and I the "Graphic Arts and Anchor Club" has been added, calling j itself the "Society for ConstituI tional Education." One of the active organizers is Scoville Hamlin who had previously spoken at an American First rally and was also an attendant at the weekly luncheons held by I Allan Zoll's an^^^Srar' ti-Semitic imer^t &{„ lean Patriots'' in Ik ,M&fe New York in supposed purposes of are to analyze and economic and politithrough educational forum. Just what sort of political problemsthis group will be interested in can best be judged by the fact that an imposing list of well-known New York fascists and anti-Semitites are interested in the welfare of the organization.

AUGUST2DATESET FOB EXPRESS! OF SORROW, GRIEF As a result of a decision made this week by the Miami Round Table of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. Sunday. August 2 has been set aside as ar occasion for the expression of grief and indignation over the mass murders in Nazi-occupied countries. In order to stir the conscience of the community most vividly a special committee under the chairmanship of Rev. Richard Broyles will contact all of the ministers in Greater Miami and urge that they devote their sermons to a discussion of the full implications of the European situation. In addition, the Saturday evening period usually devoted to a round table discussior August 1 at 8:30 o'clock, wili feature a trio of Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish clergymen who will speak of the Nazi atrocities. Cooperating in the general (CONTINUED ON PAGE 7) From California comes the welcome news that William Ernest Kullgren, publisher of the pro-Axis, anti-Jewish magazine, the "Beacon Light," has, after many years of agitating for totalitarianism, been indicted by the grand jury on charges of sedition. William Lemke, best known for his political associations with Father Coughlin, won the primary election for United States Congressman in North Dakota. The "Mothers of Sons," a recently organized Coughlanite patterned group of women, continue to meet in Cincinnati thinking up various ways and means of harassing the allied war effort along with their crusade against Russia.' They are also seeking to have petitions sent to Washington demanding that American troops be recalled from overseas duty, "lest our own shores be invaded." If any doubts were entertained concerning the background of this organization, they can easily be dispelled by noting that a guest speaker was none other than Carl H. Mote, president of the Indiana Telephone Co.. well known for his fascist activities, who was recently questioned by the grand jury in Washington. Mote, in his speech, viciously attacked Willkie. plainly inferring that he was a tool of the Jews. He also stated that Churchill and Roosevelt were responsible for Pearl Harbor, and the inuendn was that they actually planned the attack. Page the grand jury again. Miss Lucy S. Stewart of Evanston, 111., continues her obstructionist writings belittling every activity of the United States government. In a mimeographed etter, called "Save Our Repubic." she states the following: "The culminating world distster is to be world union, vhcreby all countries will be .ubject to enslaving domination. This domination is by the Talmudic Jews. Politicians and he press are afraid to speak up i£ainst them and fear agitation (CONTINUED ON PAGE 8) I

Managing Editor One Entered as Second Class Matter July 4, 1930, at the Post Office of Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 SUBSCRIPTION Year, $2.00 Six Months. $1.00 NUMBER 30 VOLUME 15 Ab 10. 5702 MIAMI. FLORIDA. FRIDAY. JULY 24. 1942 TRAGEDY Shocked this week at a gruesome tragedy that one often reads about in detective fiction magazines was not only Miami Jewry but an entire community. A happy peaceful couple, minding their own business doing their little bit of good for humanity in their own guiet way. wiped from the face of the earth in but a breath of time. The peace and guiet of their home invaded by a ruthless, bestial fiend, cruel and cunning, vicious and gutted with a determined hatred as yet unexplained. A hatred that not only in cold blood murdered a family of three, one an expectant mother, but without regard murdered a youth of nineteen who he commandeered at the point of a gun to take him away from the scene of the killing. Why—is the guestion that is on the lips of everyone—why? That is a guestion that will be answered only when the killer has been captured and possibly not then. The community mourns this tragedy. One of our Rabbis aptly writes, "It is with a sense of deep remorse that we call the community to mourn and remind them that the visitation of such sorrow bespeaks the community's sins and its unmistakable spiritual responsibility. It is our humble and fervent hope that we shall be spared such tragedies in the future. May it be the will of God that we may be privileged to serve Him with lighter hearts and a clear, unspoiled conscience. TISHA B'AV Still another sign that the war is bringing to each of the United Nations a deeper understanding of the aspirations and hopes of the peoples of the world was the report that the influential Moscow weekly "Ogonick," in commenting on Tisha B'av, stated that this war would not see another destruction of Jerusalem and all that that city stands for. This item was particularly heartening as it marked the first time since the Communist Revolution in Russia that any Soviet publication has referred to world-wide Jewish observance of Tisha B'av. Hitherto, no mention of religious Jewish holidays was made in the Soviet press. Explaining that this week Jews in Palestine and elsewhere would mourn the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem more than 2,500 years ago, the Soviet publication confidently expressed the belief that Field Marshal Rommel's Nazi armies would not succeed in cracking through Egypt to enter Palestine. The pattern of Soviet behavior has been increasingly sympathetic to the Jewish people since the start of the Nazi-Soviet war and it is to be hoped that this spirit of understanding and sympathy continues to flourish both in war and peace. In the event, however, that the Nazi legions are able to drive to the approaches of Palestine, the position of the Palestine Jewish community was made clear by 200 Palestine Jewish writers meeting in special conference this week: "The Yishuv will face danger proudly and will stand firm in defense of the country and its national honor." • "Whenever an American utters or prints a statement that is used successfully by the Axis propagandists to promote the cause of our enemies, he is responsible for prolonging the war and shedding the blood of American boys. Just as we inscribe the names of our heroes on a roll of honor, we should inscribe his name on a roll of infamy."—Justice James F. Byrnes, U. S. Supreme Court. JEWISH HEROISM These are the days that try men's souls. Sacrifice is reguired of everyone and of some, the supreme sacrifice. The newspapers, here and abroad, recount many heroic exploits of Jews during the past few weeks. In England, a Jewish submarine captain was awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest honor a soldier in the British Empire can aspire to. In Russia, we hear of a Jewish submarine captain whose submarine sank eight Nazi transports. In Palestine, the British Government, during the past week, decorated a number of Jewish privates and officers of the Palestine troops and at the same time two Australian Jewish officers fighting in the Middle East. In America, a Brooklyn Jewish flyer was listed as one of those participating in the Fourth of July bombings of Germany. We shall need more of this heroism, for the fact that we are now in one of the darkest periods of the war cannot be blinked at. The enemy is close to those points which, by their position, will enable him to keep a stranglehold, though the forces against him otherwise may vastly outshadow him. If a thug holds a person, choking him, he may be attacking a relatively small part of the person, but it is a decisive part and the approach of the Nazis to the Caucasus and the Middle East place them in just that position. We shall need all our strength and all our resourcefulness to see that this hold is not intensified but relaxed and thrown off. Final victory we shall have. Of that we may be sure. It is inconceivable that the world shall be permanently held in the grasp of savagery, but whether victory shall be delayed or speeded, will be decided in the next couple of months. Will you give at least 10% of your pay in War Bonds? -TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHEREfMicJtly, eonptentid -By PHINEAS J. BIRON. ARAB-JEWISH RELATIONS "It must be the chief function of the Jews to help reconcile the Arabs first of all with the Anglo-American world. "If the Jews cannot do this, there is small future for them in this part of the world. They certainly cannot do this by trying to v/in the Anglo-American world for the Jews alone against the Arabs. "To the Jews we should therefore say: Do everything to bring about union of Jews and Araos within a binational Palestine. With a binational Palestine as a beginning, do everything to bring about understanding and reconciliation between the Arab world and the Anglo-American world; and then with all free United Nations. "To the Arabs we would say: Hold up bei fore your eyes the vision of a great union of Arab Semitic States affiliated with the AngloAmerican world. From this wider point of view do everything to achieve union with the Jews within Palestine Jews can help as no other people can or will—scientifically, finan-. cially socially, in industry and agricultureto build up an Arab Semitic federation within the greater federation of free United Nations" —Or. Judah L. Magnes, president of Hebrew University. PALESTINE-SYMBOL OF DEMOCRACY "The greatest physical, economic and educational development which has taken place in Palestine in the last two decades has been v fu ex m P le of what can be accomplished by a free people working in a democracy. We are all looking forward to the !" ay when that type of development may be con turned in peace and harmony in the general march of mankind toward the accomSmen L *£ FoUr Freed everywhere i£ Z world. -Message from President RooiveH faS^cii^:: 1 dinner of e Ess REMEMBER IABOTINSKY That was a touching ceremony which last week at a Long Island cemetery, marked the second anniversary of Vladimir Jabotinsky's death His widow silently deposited flowers on the grave Then a delegation of Palestinians of the Irgum, a virile group of men, laid a huge wreath on the Zionist leader's last resting-place And Eri Jabotinsky recited Iskor ... No speeches—no bombastic phrases—but only a rededication to the work for which the Rosh Betar gave his all And the entire occasion served as a reminder that Jabotinsky, more than any other Jewish leader, foresaw present developments and recognized the importance of a Jewish army when that theme was strictly taboo in high Zionist circles.

4 PAGE SIX -Jmisl* fkrkiian THE Y. M.H.A. NOTES By HARRY SCHWARTZ Home Camp When the Home Camp was founded four years ago, the original idea was to give every child an opportuniy to take advantage of our project. Particular empha-1 sis was stressed on the underprivileged child who could not afford to pay the regular tuition. The Board of Directors of the Y. M. H. A. has made it a point to welcome children regardless of their financial ability to pay. In line with this thought, the "Y" has inaugurated a project for crippled children in cooperation with the Anna Miller Circle. Children are brought here every Friday for luncheon and they remain here for the rest of the day. They witness a dramatic performance by the Camp children, they are given ice cream and participate in the Camp activities. It really is a sight to behold. The first of these visitations, took place last Friday when the children were brought by Palmer Ambulance to the Camp. Mrs. Rose Ehrlich of the Anna Miller Circle, a trained nurse, was in constant care of the children. Every Friday a different group of crippled children will be brought here. Similar arrangements are being made for the Beach Camp. Army and Navy Day at the "Y" Camp Last Wednesday the Home Camp entertained members of the armed forces at luncheon. FRIDAY.

What the Bible means to say is not that the poor shall always be with us, but that we should always be with the poor. What the Bible says is this—since the poor shall never cease out of the land, therefore I command thee saying, "Thou shalt surely open thy hand unto thy poor and needy brother in thy land." As honest individuals we cannot share the cruel and heartless attitudes of those who refuse to share the fate of their less fortunate fellow-Jews or refuse to coordinate the work through proper supervision, but instead confuse and distort by doing negligible work themselves. We need the devotion and loyalty of all our people as never before in our Jewish Welfare Bureau to help us coordinate all welfare cases in this area— needy, mental as well as social cases. Once and for all, let us realize that the only organization which has the mechanics set up. with Mrs. Sadye G. Rose and her staff supervising the work for the proper fulfillment of welfare work, is our Jewish Welfare Bureau. In this organization especially there must be coordination and unity of purpose.

WEEKLY GIGGLE From Berlin via the grapevine comes the story of the houseworker who was being interviewed by a prospective employer .. The salary, said the girl, would have to be sixty marks a month—and explained that while forty marks would pay for her work, the rest would be her reward for not telling the Gestapo that the household was listening to foreign broadcasts and buying illicit food in the black market. "But that won't be necessary." protested the hausfrau "We don't listen to short-wave broadcasts, and we never buy food beyond the limits set by our ration cards" "In that case," came back the maid. "I don't want the job ... I can't work in a house of nitwits where I'll starve to death" Then there's the one about the German woman who, after studying the display in a bakery window, went inside to inquire how come the rolls were so large that day She threatened to report him to the Gestapo for disobeying size regulations unless he'd give her a couple of the oversized ones by way of a bribe But the baker quickly saved himself and convinced her of his faithful adherence to the rules "Those are not rolls," he pointed out : : : "Those are the fresh loaves I just put out."

Most of us are aware that agitation against the Jew has by no means been lessened as a result of the war. Rumors against the Jew continue to fly thick and Gossip here says that the time is coming for the relaxation of restrictions on the life of "Axis aliens"—so many of them bitter anti-Axis refugees — along the west coast. Events both here and along the Pacific seem to bear this out. ~In Washington, the president only recently loosed his blast against employers who have fired or refused to hire jobseekers for no other reason than that they lacked citizenship. The practice was by no means confined to the west, but it seemed particularly rampant there. Not long before. Lieut. Gen. John L.

Andrews (D. Fla.l. It would relieve steamship companies of having to refund passage money to aliens rejected by the immigration authorities. For years now, if an alien's right to enter this country were questioned, the steamship company that brought him had to pay for his keep on Ellis Island until the case was decided. If the alien could not be admitted, the company had to take him back where it got him. return his fare and pay a fine as well. Senator Andrews' bill provides that the company's responsibility would cease when it found an alien had a valid American visa, no mental or contagious diseases and no physical defects that would make him a burden on the country. These days little can assuage the hardships of an alien refused admittance to this country at our very shores.

Joint funeral services Tuesday
afternoon at the Palmer Funeral
Chapel were held for Irving,
Esther Leopold, and child Ste-
phen, murdered victims of prob-
ably Miami's most gruesome
tr;ii;< dy, before an overflowing
att< ndance that crowded the side-
walk.
Having finished their Shabbos
meal and sitting around in true
family fashion, relaxing, resting
and enjoying the Sabbath day of
rest in their usual manner. Irving
Leopold, his wife. Esther, and his
legally adopted son were mur-
dered last Friday evening by an
assailant to this time still un-
known.
Shocking entire Miami and
elsewhere as the news oi the
nild-blooded killing spread,
arousing sentiment of the deter-
mined populace, reiterated by law
enforcement agencies, that no
stone would be left unturned un-
til the killer is caught and justice
meted.
Escaping, the murderer at the
point of a gun, stopped the car
of Ralph Morin, youth of 19. and
forced him to drive him from the
scene of the crime. Morin's body,
likewise murdered, was found in
the southwest section several
links from the scene of the first
crime shortly thereafter.
living Leopold, 37, who resid-
ed with his family in an apart-
ment above the newly construct-
ed kosher meat and poultry mar-
kit in which he was half-owner.
was found by the police alive but
unconscious. He passed away
Saturday morning. His wife and
her child of a former marriage
both died instantly from the bul-
lets. A composite description of
the killer was gathered from wit-
nesses who had brief glimpses of
Ins movements.
Irving, as he was known to
hundreds of customers and
friends with whom he came in
contact, came to Miami about
eight years ago and after work-
ing as a butcher in one of the
kosher markets went into busi-
ness six years ago with Dave
Kl her, as partners in the Miami
Kosher Market. Located, until
past May, on North West
Fifth Street, both of them de-
signed and supervised the eon-
struction of the new market < n
South West Eighth Street. Irving
took the publisher of The Jewish
Floridian soon after completion
oi the new structure, through his
home, an apartment located above
the new store. He spoke of th
convenience the new residence
would be to him and spoke
about his plans for furnishing.
He was happy that he would be
able, should he feel tired, to run
upstairs to got a nap and how
his wife wou'd be able to pre-
pare hot lunches for him. He
was happy, likewise, as he spoke
about his expectant child which
would have been born in Novem-
ber.
Arrangements for the services
were held up pending the arrival

JWI PRESIDENT
IN OPEN LETTER TO
JEWRY OF
Throush the courtesy of The
Jewish Floridian. I take this mo-
ment to write to our fellow Jews
of Greater Miami realizing their
creat interest in carrying out one
of the outstanding principles of
our heritagenamely that "Tzdo-
koh"Jewish Welfare, takes pr*-
j cedence in Jewish life.
I accepted the presidency of
the Jewish Welfare Bureau be-
cause I felt as an honest Jew if
! there is anything surgingly alive
within us it should be an attitude
: of benevolence and charitableness
i toward fellow-Jews.
There are some people in our
j community to whom the problem
; of relief is a strain and a burden.
"Why create the impression,"' say
these people, "that the poor
(physical or mental) in our midst
present a new problem in Jew-
i ish life by speaking about it?
Does not the Bible say, 'The poor
I shall never cease out of the
land?'
This is an erroneous m-

the national campaign officially
started by President Roosevelt,
the lodge is assisting its mem-
bers and Greater Miami Jewry in
fulfilling their patriotic duty in
gathering this salvage, small or
large, to be put into use for war
production.
Emphasizing that no amount of
scrap is too small or too large,

manship of Louis Heiman. and as-
sisted by William Boxerman,
Nathan Adehnan. Louis Pallot,
Mfred Stone and E. Albert Pal-

B'rith office. 3-0751.
Starting last Monday morning
the drive netted 50,000 pounds at
the close of Tuesday afternoon's
collection. Those who wisn pav-
nent will be paid at the rate an-
lounccd by the Dade County De-
ense Council and all funds netted
from the drive by scrap donaieu
will be devoted to a worthy pa-
riotic purpose by the Sholem

SUCCESSIVE TERN
Receiving an unusual mark of
recognition, Mrs. Lena Simon,
active clubwoman of this city.
was reappointcd for her second
successive term as a member .if
the District Welfare Board No.
9. by two governors. Completing
her first appointment of four
veins, serving at the request of
former governor Fred P. Cone,
her reapnointment by the present
Governor Spessard L. Holland
was announced this week.
The Welfare Board, a stat
agency, deals with requests and
the giving of aid to those needing
old-age assistance, aid to the
blind and aid to dependent child-
ren, among its major objects.
Mrs. Simon is at present ;:

has devoted part of her time to
practically every' major endeavor
in the area. She also belongs to
the Anna Miller Circle. ,I"\\ ish

FOB EXPRESS!
OF SORROW, GRIEF
As a result of a decision made
this week by the Miami Round
Table of the National Conference
of Christians and Jews. Sunday.
August 2 has been set aside as ar
occasion for the expression of
grief and indignation over the
mass murders in Nazi-occupied
countries.
In order to stir the conscience
of the community most vividly a
special committee under the
chairmanship of Rev. Richard
Broyles will contact all of the
ministers in Greater Miami and
urge that they devote their ser-
mons to a discussion of the full
implications of the European sit-
uation. In addition, the Satur-
day evening period usually de-
voted to a round table discussior

From California comes the
welcome news that William Er-
nest Kullgren, publisher of the
pro-Axis, anti-Jewish magazine,
the "Beacon Light," has, after
many years of agitating for total-
itarianism, been indicted by the
grand jury on charges of sedi-
tion.
William Lemke, best known
for his political associations with
Father Coughlin, won the pri-
mary election for United States
Congressman in North Dakota.
The "Mothers of Sons," a re-
cently organized Coughlanite pat-
terned group of women, continue
to meet in Cincinnati thinking up
various ways and means of har-
assing the allied war effort along
with their crusade against Rus-
sia.' They are also seeking to
have petitions sent to Washington
demanding that American troops
be recalled from overseas duty,
"lest our own shores be invaded."
If any doubts were entertained
concerning the background of
this organization, they can eas-
ily be dispelled by noting that a
guest speaker was none other
than Carl H. Mote, president of
the Indiana Telephone Co.. well
known for his fascist activities,
who was recently questioned by
the grand jury in Washington.
Mote, in his speech, viciously at-
tacked Willkie. plainly inferring
that he was a tool of the Jews.
He also stated that Churchill and
Roosevelt were responsible for
Pearl Harbor, and the inuendn
was that they actually planned
the attack. Page the grand jury
again.
Miss Lucy S. Stewart of Evans-
ton, 111., continues her obstruc-
tionist writings belittling every
activity of the United States
government. In a mimeographed
etter, called "Save Our Repub-
ic." she states the following:
"The culminating world dis-
tster is to be world union,
vhcreby all countries will be
.ubject to enslaving domina-
tion. This domination is by the
Talmudic Jews. Politicians and
he press are afraid to speak up

A duty every man
iwes himself and his
amily is that of pro-
viding a final restinq
olace. It is only wise
and prudent that the
election of a cemetery
'ot should be made in
"advance of need." The
selection of a cemetery
lot does not bring iti
use any nearer, but it
does dispose of a duty
with comfort and
due deliberaton.
Mount Nebo has a
definite assured capital
structure wth no out-
standing debts and is
not subject to the
whims and caprices of
an annually elected
group of officers who
know nothing of pro-
per cemetery manag-
ing and have no per-
sonal or financial res-
ponsibility to you.
Maybe you feel that you have already provided ade-
quate burial protection for your familyby paying dues
to some organization which offers burial space. But
such organizations usually scatter families in different
cemeteries instead of keeping them together in one place.
Visit any cemetery and you will see pathetic sights.
Families completely torn apart, scattered among strang-
ers, lack of upkeepall because the head of the family
THOUGHT he had provided properly.
No matter how long you have been a member of an
organizationno matter how much you have paid in dues
it would still be wiser to get a family plot directly
rrom Mount Nebo. This is a sure way you can prevent
your loved ones from being acattered.

Brother Al Green, your regu-

vacation today and so he has
delegated to me the portfolio of
his position. Have a good time, j
Al. The mountains of Carolina
are a lot better than the present
heat wave in Miami (if the Cham-
ber of Commerce is looking. I'm
only kidding.)
Last week, with Lou Heiman
presiding, the regular monthly
meeting of Sholem Lodge was
held at the Elk's Club on the
Beach. Pres. Burnett Roth has
been and will probably continue
to be out of town for some time
Frankly, the attendance was dis-
appointing. Is it the hot weather,
is it because of the dimout on the
causeway (if so, what excuse do
the Beach members have?), is it
because the meeting was on the
Beach? The officers do not know
the answer. We would be thrillce'
to receive letters from our bro-
thers telling us why ttoey are not
attending meetings in larger
numbers. Your officers are here
to serve you. Tell us what you
want and if it is humanly possible
10 give it to you, you will get it.
The lodge has not had a socia.
get together in quite some time.
That situation is being remedied
immediately. This coming Tues-
day evening the Lodge will spon-
sor a boat ride. The moon will be'
full, the weatherman predicts '
good weather, the evening air
will be cool, and all in all it is
just what the doctor ordered.
The boat is the Seven Seas It-
cated at Pier 8 at the City Yacht
Basin. An orchestra will furnish
music tor dancing and reirosn-
ments will be served. The ride
will be from 8:30 till 11:30 and
will be coiuined only to tne bay.
The capacity of the boat is
limited so it is advisable to place
your reservations in advance.
Call Dr. Alex Kushner at 3-0740
.or reservations. Oh yes, admis-
sion is but 50c per person. Let's
iave one of our good old social
Affaire. Meet your friends whom
you haven't seen in months. Dor.'I
iet the war get you down. Pre;-,
rtoosevelt says that recreation
must continue. Follow the advice
ul your commander-in-chief. Re-
lax, beat the heat, have a swell
time. Call today.
Our thanks to Bro. Curl
Weinkle for bringing to our last
meeting some outstanding musi-
cal taient Horn among the soldiers
on the Beach. We are fortunau-
in having such talent in our
midst. Incidentally, did you know
that Bro. Carl piays a bang up
game of soft-ball? He is out regu-
larly every Sunday morning
playing with the Y. M. H. A. boys
! in town.
Here is one item about which
I don't have to ask tne tinanciai

am sure they concur, l'ay your

is urgent that all brothers send
their checks in by return mail
so that we may continue to be of

joined the Lodge .because the
wonderful work it was doing at-
tracted you. See that it continues.
Heartiest congratulations to
Bro. Ben Silver and wife and
Bro. Bill Boxerman and wife
upon recent additions to the
world. Ben is the brother of our
treasurer, Max Silver. Bill is

was named May Ellen. By the

resting at Victoria Hospital. Bill
expected a boy so as yet the baby
in unnamedit's a girl.
Incidentally, the only items of
gossip that are placed in this

If you have some news that may
be interesting to the membership
at large let me hear from you.
See you Tuesday night ai thc

A. Z. A. Activities
By Nathan Hatner
It was just eighteen years ago,
in the city of Omama, Nebraska,
that A. Z. A. was founded. That
year, 1924 saw the first chapter
installed, Omaha Mother Chap-
ter No. 1. The idea, under the
sponsorship of B'nai B'rith,
caught fire immediately. Soon the
Mogen David of A. Z- A. began
to appear in new and strange
placesbeyond the Mississippi,
beyond the Missouri, beyond the
Mason-Dixon Line, and finally
beyond the Canadian border. To-
day, with over five hundred
chapters, representing over forty
thousand boys and girls, it is the
largest group of its kind in the
world. Even though the chapters
in Shanghai, in England, in Syria,
Bulgaria and Palestine have been
suspended because of the war,
A. Z. A. continues to grow.
In the Greater Miami area
there are two A. Z. A. chapters,
one Aleph Club (an Aleph Club
is an A. Z. A. chapter in the be-
ginning stage) and two B. Z. B.
chapters, the girls organization
corresponding to A. Z. A.
Last week and this week fea-
tured several A. Z. A. activities,
including a baseball game be-
tween Royal Palm and Miami,
won by Miami, a bowling match
between Royal Palm and Sigma
Rho Aleph Club, also won by
Miami, and a really fine swim
dance at the Venetian Pools. Co-
ral Gables.
Sunday wiil teature the third
in the series of ball games be-
tween Miami and Royal Palm
(Beach) chapters, and on Mon-
day evening, Sigma Rho Aleph
Club will hold a meeting, after
which a fire-side chat on "The
problems of today" will take
place. The public is invited to the
discussion, which is to take place

MIAMI. FLORIDA. FRIDAY. JULY 24. 1942
TRAGEDY
Shocked this week at a gruesome tragedy
that one often reads about in detective fiction
magazines was not only Miami Jewry but an
entire community. A happy peaceful couple,
minding their own business doing their little
bit of good for humanity in their own guiet
way. wiped from the face of the earth in but a
breath of time. The peace and guiet of their
home invaded by a ruthless, bestial fiend,
cruel and cunning, vicious and gutted with a
determined hatred as yet unexplained. A
hatred that not only in cold blood murdered a
family of three, one an expectant mother, but
without regard murdered a youth of nineteen
who he commandeered at the point of a gun
to take him away from the scene of the killing.
Whyis the guestion that is on the lips of
everyonewhy? That is a guestion that will
be answered only when the killer has been
captured and possibly not then.
The community mourns this tragedy. One
of our Rabbis aptly writes, "It is with a sense
of deep remorse that we call the community
to mourn and remind them that the visitation
of such sorrow bespeaks the community's sins
and its unmistakable spiritual responsibility.
It is our humble and fervent hope that we shall
be spared such tragedies in the future. May it
be the will of God that we may be privileged
to serve Him with lighter hearts and a clear,
unspoiled conscience.
TISHA B'AV
Still another sign that the war is bringing
to each of the United Nations a deeper under-
standing of the aspirations and hopes of the
peoples of the world was the report that the in-
fluential Moscow weekly "Ogonick," in com-
menting on Tisha B'av, stated that this war
would not see another destruction of Jerusalem
and all that that city stands for. This item was
particularly heartening as it marked the first
time since the Communist Revolution in Russia
that any Soviet publication has referred to
world-wide Jewish observance of Tisha B'av.
Hitherto, no mention of religious Jewish holi-
days was made in the Soviet press.
Explaining that this week Jews in Palestine
and elsewhere would mourn the destruction of
the Temple in Jerusalem more than 2,500 years
ago, the Soviet publication confidently ex-
pressed the belief that Field Marshal Rommel's
Nazi armies would not succeed in cracking
through Egypt to enter Palestine.
The pattern of Soviet behavior has been
increasingly sympathetic to the Jewish people
since the start of the Nazi-Soviet war and it is
to be hoped that this spirit of understanding
and sympathy continues to flourish both in war
and peace.
In the event, however, that the Nazi legions
are able to drive to the approaches of Pales-
tine, the position of the Palestine Jewish com-
munity was made clear by 200 Palestine Jew-
ish writers meeting in special conference this
week: "The Yishuv will face danger proudly
and will stand firm in defense of the country
and its national honor."

"Whenever an American utters or prints a
statement that is used successfully by the Axis
propagandists to promote the cause of our ene-
mies, he is responsible for prolonging the war
and shedding the blood of American boys.
Just as we inscribe the names of our heroes
on a roll of honor, we should inscribe his name
on a roll of infamy."Justice James F. Byrnes,
U. S. Supreme Court.
JEWISH HEROISM
These are the days that try men's souls.
Sacrifice is reguired of everyone and of some,
the supreme sacrifice. The newspapers, here
and abroad, recount many heroic exploits of
Jews during the past few weeks. In England,
a Jewish submarine captain was awarded the
Victoria Cross, the highest honor a soldier in
the British Empire can aspire to. In Russia, we
hear of a Jewish submarine captain whose sub-
marine sank eight Nazi transports. In Pales-
tine, the British Government, during the past
week, decorated a number of Jewish privates
and officers of the Palestine troops and at the
same time two Australian Jewish officers fight-
ing in the Middle East. In America, a Brook-
lyn Jewish flyer was listed as one of those par-
ticipating in the Fourth of July bombings of
Germany.
We shall need more of this heroism, for the
fact that we are now in one of the darkest
periods of the war cannot be blinked at. The
enemy is close to those points which, by their
position, will enable him to keep a strangle-
hold, though the forces against him otherwise
may vastly outshadow him. If a thug holds a
person, choking him, he may be attacking a
relatively small part of the person, but it is a
decisive part and the approach of the Nazis to
the Caucasus and the Middle East place them
in just that position.
We shall need all our strength and all our
resourcefulness to see that this hold is not in-
tensified but relaxed and thrown off. Final
victory we shall have. Of that we may be
sure. It is inconceivable that the world shall
be permanently held in the grasp of savagery,
but whether victory shall be delayed or
speeded, will be decided in the next couple of
months.

ARAB-JEWISH RELATIONS
"It must be the chief function of the Jews '
to help reconcile the Arabs first of all with
the Anglo-American world.
"If the Jews cannot do this, there is small
future for them in this part of the world. They
certainly cannot do this by trying to v/in the
Anglo-American world for the Jews alone
against the Arabs.
"To the Jews we should therefore say: Do
everything to bring about union of Jews and
Araos within a binational Palestine. With a
binational Palestine as a beginning, do every-
thing to bring about understanding and recon-
ciliation between the Arab world and the
Anglo-American world; and then with all free
United Nations.
"To the Arabs we would say: Hold up be- i
fore your eyes the vision of a great union of
Arab Semitic States affiliated with the Anglo-
American world. From this wider point of
view do everything to achieve union with the
Jews within Palestine Jews can help as no
other people can or willscientifically, finan-.
cially socially, in industry and agriculture-
to build up an Arab Semitic federation within
the greater federation of free United Nations"
Or. Judah L. Magnes, president of Hebrew
University.
PALESTINE-SYMBOL OF DEMOCRACY
"The greatest physical, economic and ed-
ucational development which has taken place
in Palestine in the last two decades has been
v fu exmPle of what can be accom-
plished by a free people working in a democ-
racy. We are all looking forward to the ay
when that type of development may be con
turned in peace and harmony in the general
march of mankind toward the accomS-
menL FoUr Freed" everywhere i Z

REMEMBER IABOTINSKY
That was a touching ceremony which last week at a
Long Island cemetery, marked the second anniversary of
Vladimir Jabotinsky's death His widow silently deposit-
ed flowers on the grave Then a delegation of Palestinians
of the Irgum, a virile group of men, laid a huge wreath on
the Zionist leader's last resting-place And Eri Jabotinsky
recited Iskor ... No speechesno bombastic phrasesbut
only a rededication to the work for which the Rosh Betar
gave his all And the entire occasion served as a remind-
er that Jabotinsky, more than any other Jewish leader, fore-
saw present developments and recognized the importance
of a Jewish army when that theme was strictly taboo in
high Zionist circles.
JEWISH ARMY FRONT
There is reason to believe that American military author-
ities look very favorably upon the Jewish army project for
the Middle East, and are telling their British colleagues to
stop pussyfooting about it We recommend a little book-
let published in London, England, by W. H. Allen ... It is called "Britain's Nameless Ally," and its author is
Israel Cohen The subject is the Jews as a factor in the
war Eddie Cantor has sent a contribution to the Commit-
tee for a Jewish Army, and pledges his support That
beautiful new drawing which adorns the New York head-
guarters of the Committee is a gift from artist Arthur Szyk,
who calls it "The Modern Maccabee" Five hundred
American army recreation centers throughout the country, in-
identally, are now having exhibits of colored reproductions
of Szyk's anti-Axis cartoons, printed up by Esguire And,
what's more, the readers of the New York Post now have the
opportunity to see new Szyk cartoons almost daily on that
paper's editorial page.
THIS AND THAT
We see by the papers that a new postage stamp issued
in Berlin bears the phizzes of Hitler, Hirohito and Victor
Emanuel of Italy We'd like it better if the Italian repre-
sentative were Benito. as that would give the stamp the pre-
cise combination we want to lick Did you know that
violin virtuoso Fritz Kreisler is known to his intimates as an
authority on the Bible?
MUSICAL NOTES
Strange though it may seem at first glance, it is to Rome
that the English-speaking nations owe the inspiring ly"c
tor the "United Nations" bottle-hymn composed by Dnm
Shostakovich, the famous Russian musician ... We mean
Harold I. Rome, of course The song, just introduced to
America on a Red Seal record, has for some time been sung
by Soviet soldiers marching into battle against the Nazis,
and is fast becoming the United Nations anthem Lar^
Adler, the harmonica artist, is making another excursion tt
the field of serious music ... His arrangement of "Blues in
toe Night" is scheduled to be performed by the Clevelana
Symphony Orchestra under Arthur Rodinski, no less.

Refuo Shlemo
We were shocked beyond ex-
pression over the horrible calam-
ity that befell our community
with the cruel and murderous
extermination of the entire Leo-
pold family. It is with a sense
of deep remorse that we call the
community to mourn and remind
them that the visitation of such
sorrow bespeaks the community s
sins and its unmistakable spirit-
ual responsibility. It is our hum-
ble and fervent hope that we
shall be spared such tragedies in
the future and that the Lord will
send comfort and consolation to
the bereaved parents of the late
Mrs. Leopold, as well as to the
host of friends who feel poign-
antly the horror of this unspeak-
able tragedy. May it be the will
of G-d that we may be privileged
to serve Him with lighter hearts
and a clear, unspoiled conscience.

THE Y. M.H.A.
NOTES
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
Home Camp
When the Home Camp was
founded four years ago, the origi-
nal idea was to give every child
an opportuniy to take advantage .
of our project. Particular empha-1
sis was stressed on the under-
privileged child who could not
afford to pay the regular tuition.
The Board of Directors of the
Y. M. H. A. has made it a point
to welcome children regardless
of their financial ability to pay.
In line with this thought, the
"Y" has inaugurated a project
for crippled children in coopera-
tion with the Anna Miller Circle.
Children are brought here every
Friday for luncheon and they
remain here for the rest of the
day. They witness a dramatic
performance by the Camp child-
ren, they are given ice cream and
participate in the Camp activi-
ties. It really is a sight to behold.
The first of these visitations,
took place last Friday when the
children were brought by Palmer
Ambulance to the Camp. Mrs.
Rose Ehrlich of the Anna Miller
Circle, a trained nurse, was in
constant care of the children.
Every Friday a different group
of crippled children will be
brought here. Similar arrange-
ments are being made for the
Beach Camp.

Last Wednesday the Home
Camp entertained members of
the armed forces at luncheon.

The Nurses' Aide Corps is be-
ing developed just as rapidly as
possible. The increasing short-
age of nurses makes it an ex-
tremely necessary precaution. It
! may not be generally understood
that a nurses' aide may not ac-
cept money for her services; she
is required to be ready at an in-
stant's notice to the casualty
station to which she has been as-
signed, and she is obligated to do
a minimum of 150 hours of work
each year in some hospital. Miss
Mary Corbitt, assistant superin-
tendent of Jackson Memorial
Hospital, has stated that she does
not know what the hospital would
do at present without the Nurses'

From Berlin via the grapevine
comes the story of the house-
worker who was being inter-
viewed by a prospective employ-
er .. The salary, said the girl,
would have to be sixty marks a
monthand explained that while
forty marks would pay for her
work, the rest would be her re-
ward for not telling the Gestapo
that the household was listening
to foreign broadcasts and buying
illicit food in the black market.
"But that won't be necessary."
protested the hausfrau "We
don't listen to short-wave broad-
casts, and we never buy food be-
yond the limits set by our ration
cards" "In that case," came
back the maid. "I don't want the
job ... I can't work in a house
of nitwits where I'll starve to
death" Then there's the one
about the German woman who,
after studying the display in a
bakery window, went inside to
inquire how come the rolls were
so large that day She threat-
ened to report him to the Ges-
tapo for disobeying size regula-
tions unless he'd give her a cou-
ple of the oversized ones by way
of a bribe But the baker
quickly saved himself and con-
vinced her of his faithful adher-
ence to the rules "Those are
not rolls," he pointed out : : :
"Those are the fresh loaves I
just put out."

That is where things stand now
Another burden on the har-
assed refugees impends in a bill
introduced recently by Senator
Charles O. Andrews (D. Fla.l. It
would relieve steamship compan-
ies of having to refund passage
money to aliens rejected by the
immigration authorities. For
years now, if an alien's right to
enter this country were ques-
tioned, the steamship company
that brought him had to pay for
his keep on Ellis Island until the
case was decided. If the alien
could not be admitted, the com-
pany had to take him back where
it got him. return his fare and
pay a fine as well.
Senator Andrews' bill provides
that the company's responsibility
would cease when it found an
alien had a valid American visa,
no mental or contagious diseases
and no physical defects that
would make him a burden on the
country. These days little can as-
suage the hardships of an alien
refused admittance to this coun-
try at our very shores. To take
even the passage money he some-
