Stracener, iRiverside Baptist Church: "With I compassionate concern for our Ifellow men, in the name of jusItice, freedom and fair play, our [voices must cry out against the [butchery and starvation now comImonly practiced by those forces I opposed to all liberty-loving peoples; not only on countless Ithousands of individuals but reIcently on whole communities as well. It is my prayer that with all the militancy of a vital faith in I the living God, we may take our stand in word and deed | against these Godless cruelties." Dr. R. L. Allen, Trinity Methodist Church: "As we contrast our position today with the rest of the world, we feel profoundly grateful for our position and very sympathetic toward the rest, who are less fortunate. I am sure we would like to share our blessing with those less fortunate in their | Peril and need." Fr.

Ml "er, State Industrial Commis^oner and chairman of the Committee on Discrimination in Employment of the State War Council, reported this week that "industrial employment opportunisms in New York State for negroes, Jews and persons of forc '8<> birth are increasing." Denver (WNS) — Mrs. Seraphine Eppstein Pisko, honorary secretary of the National Jewish Hospital at Denver and active in philanthropic and women's affairs for over 50 years, died here last week after a long illness. She was 81 years old. Born in St. Joseph. Missouri, on January 1, 1881, she became interested in the hospital in 1900, a yeaf after it was opened by B'nai B'rith. Mrs. Pisko not only devoted herself to the hospital throughout her life, but was a prominent figure in women's activities. She was one of the two American delegates representing the women of the United States at the meeting of the executive committee of the International Women's Council at the Hague, Holland, in 1922. Berne (WNS)—The mass meetings held recently in New York and other American cities to condemn Nazi atrocities against the Jews in occupied Europe caused the Nazi radio to break out into a rash of anti-Jewish charges, one of them being that American Jews were demanding trie confiscation of the property and wealth of all those of German-descent i in the United States. The Nazi regime was apparently stung by President Roosevelt's declaration made to the huge mass meeting in Now York, that the Nazis would be held to strict account for their crimes against the helpless, civilian populations ol the occupied territories. The Nazi radio ranted that American Jews were pressing tho Government to confiscate the property of German-born persons and to turn it over to Jewish victims of Nazi anti-Semitism. Another charge was that American Jews were urging the Government to seize German deposits and other wealth now frozen in U. S. banks and assign it to the Jews as compensation for the damage done to Jews in Europe. Still another charge was that the Jews were advocating sterilization for all Germans, men and women, in the United States. GESTAPO ARRESTS JEWISH WOMAN LEAVING FOR U. S. London (WNS)—Nazi Gestapo agents, apparently operating with the full knowledge if not the cooperation of the Portuguese po. lice, arrested a Jewish refugee, Bertha Jacob, shortly before she was scheduled to leave Lisbon AMERICAN TROOPS IN THE MIDDLE EAST SHARE U. S. O. New York (WNS) — American soldiers on the Middle Eastern front are the latest to enjoy the open-handed hospitality of Palestine's "Service Clubs." the Jewish National Home's version of the U.S.O. according to a report received here by the United Palestine Appeal. The "Service Clubs," whose welcome mats have already been trodden by thousands of British. Fighting French, Polish. Czech. Yugoslav, Dutch and Belgian troops, as well as Palestine's own Jewish fighters in the Allied forces, arc subsidized by U.P.A funds derived from the nationwide wartime campaign of the United Jewish Appeal, which also finances the work of the Joint Distribution Committee and National Refugee Service. POLISH JEWISH HEROES ARE HONORED AT RECEPTION New York (WNS)—A group of Polish Jewish soldiers, fresh from the Libyan battlofront. many ot them the heroic defenders in the recent siege of Tobruk. now on furlough in New York, were honored at a special reception here this week by the American Federation for Polish Jews. Present at the dinner in addition to the guests of honor were the officers of the Federation including Benjamin Winter, president, who acted as toastmaster and Minister Sylvin Strakacz, Consul General of the Republic of Poland to New York. LEADER APPEALS TO WORLD JEWRY FOR AID TO SOVIETS Kuibyshev (WNS) — Urgently appealing to world Jewry for funds to purchase military supplies and ammunition for the Red army, a well-known Polish Jewish leader now residing in the Soviet Union stressed the need for aiding the Soviet while withholding his name for fear of reprisals directed at his family still in Nazi-occupied Poland. 2.000 BULGARIAN JEWS FLEE COUNTRY FOR GUERILLAS Geneva (WNS)—More than 2.000 Bulgarian Jews have escaped from that country and joined the growing Yugoslavian guerilla army, now resisting successfully the Axis invaders of Yugoslavia, it was reported here this week.

Kellner will take place at the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, S. W. 17th Avenue at 6th Street, Sunday evening, August 9th at 8 p. m. Tendered jointly by the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, whom the Rabbi served as spiritual leader for the past six years, and the Rabbinical Association of Rabbi Abraham A. Kellner 3PHEC F AT by RICHARD E. GUTSTADT National Director of the Anti-Defamation League of B'Nai B'rith Relentless government inquiry into the activities of the Little Fuehrers—those who would introduce Axis ideologies into this country—has led to the expected indictment of 28 persons whose fulminations assumed a treasonable tone, once our nation was at war. These sowers of racial and religious hates met their Waterloo when they endeavored to promote disaffection in the armed forces of the United States. Gratifying as these indictments must be to all decent Americans, there yet remain in the country numerous persons and agencies which would assume the meretricious role of Jew-baiting and carry on the efforts of the 28 indicted to spread hate and suspicion in the nation. For example, in Boston a new eightpage tabloid has just made its appearance, implying that it is the successor to Coughhn s "Social Justice." The publication intends to "expose" a worthy prodemocratic organization known as the American Irish Defense Association, obviously because of the efforts of the latter group to nullify the efforts of the spreaders of hate. The AIDA had encouraged the study o f vicious rumors which impede our national war effort, and is in uie iuieiTOlll of organizations seeking exposure of the forces promoting defeatism and suspicion of our allies. e • • An organization known as "Patriots of the Republic" continues to meet in New York City, and to indulge in such fantastic statements as the recent one asserting that the eight notorious Nazi saboteurs had been "railroaded" by the FBI, and that the arrested Nazis were not spies (despite the fact that the men have confessed.) One member boldly asserted that Hitler is winning "because he is right!" The chairman of the meeting attacked Japan repeatedly, but significantly failed to identify Nazi Germany as Ammerica's foe, though the casual listener might very well think that Great Britain was our most formidable enemy, and that Germany was our ally, so warped is this group on the subject of the war. e e • Edward James Smythe, head of the so-called Protestant War Veteran's Association, which in reality is an anti-Semitic group disavowed by reputable veterans' agencies, was deservedly indicted by the federal grand jury for his (CONTINUED ON PAGE 7) Greater Miami, of which he Was a member, the program will include tributes from many of Miami's organizations. Rabbi Colman A. Zwitman will be chairman of the evening and will present the Rabbis of Greater Miami in addition to Mr. Max Rifas, president of the Orthodox Congregation, Mr. George Chertkof and Mr. E. Albert Pallot. Rabbi William Drazin of Savannah. Ga. will also address the gathering. Resolutions expressing the service rendered to the community during Rabbi Kellner's stay here, will be presented. Mr. Max Rifas is chairman of the committee of arrangements for the evening. Rabbi Kellner will leave next week for Albany, N. Y. where he has accepted a call to become the spiritual leader of Congregation Sons of Abraham. During his stay here he served as a member of the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami and was an officer of the State Rabbinical group. He conducted radio programs during the last several years once each month. Ho took an active part in Jewish communal affairs and was largely responsible for the inception of Mizrachi activity in this area. NAZIS EXPECT HOLLAND TO BE "JUDEREIN" BY NEXT YEAR Lisbon (WNS)—The expulsions of Jews from Nazi-occupied Holland has been accelerated to such a degree that it may be expected that the Netherlands will be completely "judenrein" by the middle of 1943, it was reported this week by the Dutch Nazi newspaper "Storm Weekblad." f

Mount Nebo has a definite assured cspital structure wth no outstanding debts and is not subject to the whims and caprices of an annually elected group of officers who know nothing of proper cemetery managing and have no per%  enal or financial responsibility to you. Maybe you feel that you have already provided adequate burial protection for your family—by paying dues to some organization which offers burial space. Bui 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 strangers, lack of upkeep—all because the head of the family THOUGHT he had provided properly. No matter how long you have been a member of an organization—no matter how much you have paid in dues —it would still be wiser to get a family plot directly from Mount Nebo.

Dr. Daniel Iverson, Shenandoah Presbyterian Church: "All of us in America find ourselves sympathetic to the persecuted masses of Europe. It is difficult sometimes to differentiate between the truth and propaganda, but, having visited Europe in 1939, and seeing the practical evidence of the persecution of the Jew, I can well believe the stories reaching this country regarding the terrible persecution of the conquered nations. This we believe, will spur us on to a victory that will guarantee our own protection, and will give again to these people the opportunity to live unmolested. This is what we are fighting for regardless of what men may say as to other issues. All other issues are secondary." Mayor Cliff H. Reeder issued this special proclamation for the occasion: "WHEREAS officials of Nazi Germany have attempted, with brutality beyond description, to stamp out religious freedom, and to substitute for this spiritual solace, a Pagan adoration of gods of their own creation, and WHEREAS God fearing peoples of the earth have shuddered at the unspeakable cruelties visited upon both Christian and Jew to shatter their spiritual beliefs, NOW THEREFORE, I, Cliff H. Reeder, Mayor of the City of Miami, do thoroughly indorse the action of the Miami Round Table of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, in designating Sunday, August 2, 1942, as n day set apart for all of us to offer our prayers and works for this suffering humanity, and to pledge anew our strength to speed the day when these acts of barbarism are eliminated and man may once again worship his God according to the dictates of his conscience." PAGE THREE %  I THE Y. M. H. A. NOTES By HARRY SCHWARTZ Meet Larry Grossberg Serving Two Year Term on The Board Larry Grossberg was elected to serve a two year term on the Board of the "Y" last election. He was born in the little town of Galatz, Rumania on September 9, 1892. Larry came to the United States in 1920 and resided in Key West. Florida. There he married the former Miss Anita Mandel. In 1928 they moved to Miami and opened up the Vanity Dress Shop at 126 N. Miami Ave. Mr. and Mrs. Grossberg are the proud parents of two boys, Frederick, 20 and Sidney, 12 years of age. Fred enlisted in the Army Air Corps recently. Larry has been active in YMHA work for over seven years. He has been instrumental in bringing in many new members to the organization. In Larry's own words, his greatest desire is to see the building of a Jewish Community Center before he "kicks the bucket." Home Camp Our Executive Director received a letter this week which we quote as follows: "Enclosed will find check for $10.00 to be added to the camp fund which will make some boy or girl happy who is less fortunate. Have followed up every year the wonderful work you have accomplished with your summer camp, of course not forgetting the good work in establishing your other activities also. May I add that I feel very proud to be a member of the YMHA. It is my regret that I cannot be a more actitve member, but being in business and living at such a distance makes that impossible. The YMHA has made such great strides and is doing such wonderful work in only a short time, that since I cannot be active in helping to build such a worthwhile organization, this is my humble way of contributing towards the good of my community. While the sum is not large, yet it is substantial on my part, and believe me it is given with all sincerity and good wishes for the continuation of future sue-1 cess." Name withheld on request. : This letter needs no further' elaboration. We are very happy i to find in our midst civic minded i persons who appreciate the worth of an organization like the "Y".

Managing Editor SUBSCRIPTION One Year, $2.00 Six Months, $1.00 Entered as Second Class Matter July 4, 1930, at the Post Office of Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 VOLUME 15 NUMBER 32 Ab 24, 5702 MIAMI. FLORIDA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 7. 1942 ACTION--THE ANSWER The almost unbelievably uncivilized Nazi brutality to Polish Jewry culminated this week in a London report that Nazi authorities in Poland had decided to exterminate" the estimated 600,000 Jews in the Warsaw ghetto. This charge made by leaders of the Polish government-inexile in London was backed by reports of blood pogroms in the Warsaw ghetto following the arrival of Gestapo Chief Heinrich Himmler. The details of such pogroms is as wellknown to the civilized world as is the bloody butchery of Himmler. The senseless indiscriminate slaughter of innocent and helpless men, women and children has certainly not ceased to horrify the world but it is no longer a startling occurence. Such action has come to be an integral part of Nazi decadence and degradation and an indication of its sure defeat. However, today more than ever such reports infuse us with a rising spirit of determination to win this war. Victory becomes, if possible, a more pressing and more immediate concern. All over the world news of such nature excites greater effort and sacrifice on the part of our soldiers and workers toward the liberation of enslaved mankind. Outraged by the reports of Nazi atrocities against the civilian populations of occupied countries, the British Labor Party strongly demanded that the United Nations take immediate steps to halt these atrocities. Again, nine of the United Nations called upon President Roosevelt to extend a strong and last warning to Germany against the "barbaric and inhuman crimes" committed daily. Aside from the moral indignation Nazi barbarities have aroused has come news of tangible results from the greater efforts of people and individuals toward winning the war quickly. Dr. Weizmann who in World War I, discovered synthetic acetone for a desperate Britain, may now help to provide the solution for the U. S. rubber shortage. With the Nazi menace growing daily, thousands of Jews in Biro-Bidjan have intensified their military training programs to provide new reserves for the embattled Soviet Armies. In America, we continue to round up our pTONazis and anti-Semites in our effort to ciean up the home front. What better answer can the world make to the reports of Nazi atrocities? "There are two words today by which we shape our thoughts and deeds. One is Americanism and the other is victory. The first is yours by right of herilaqe, a right for which you have fought and which you have treasured above all other possessions. "The second, which now stirs the soul and determination of every true American, will be yours because the members of B'nai B'rith are fighting, working and giving in unity to achieve victory."—Governor Green of Illinois. "This great nation, released from the bonds of the past by the Declaration of Independence, is and will continue to be the Zion of all faiths and the promised land of all peoples who once have touched its shores. America will be a land flowing with milk and honey to those who have faith in human liberly and to those who will build for all their fellow men for freedom on that faith."—Rabbi Jonah B. Wise. "There are some who still seek appeasement or are willing to consider a negotiated peace. If they are stupid enough or evil enough to believe that they can save their properties or their skins by compromise or appeasement, they are ignorant or blind to the history of totalitarian aggression. Nothing short of complete victory will save our liberties. A stalemate would, in effect, be just as dangerous to democracy as defeat "—Governor Herbert E. Lehman. -TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHEREyjtAictfy eotvfldentlal -By PHTNEAS J. BIRON. A SECOND FRONT A few weeks back, the Nazi armies seemed to be rolling through the desert at a speed which made the United Nations tremble. They foresaw an almost immediate occupation of Alexandria and plans for blowing up the Suez were already being discussed. The Nazis would find nothing to block their way in the Near East. The oil fields of Iraq and Iran would soon be at their disposal and the Nazis would j be able to form a junction with the Japanese | troops invading India. Happily, the great disaster that loomed was checked. The danger there of course still persists, but at least for the time it was halted. But now an even more severe crisis faces the United Nations with the advances made toward the Caucasus by the Axis. Mr. Litvinoff has been conferring with the President and the cry everywhere is—create a second front. Public officials, however, say I nothing of such a second front. It may be taken for granted that the President and Churchill and other leaders are as cognisant of the danger as is the public. The question that they must answer is—are there the men and supplies ready for such a second j front? But it is not purely a statistical question that they must answer. There is a matter of strategy—of military logistics—involved. Con-' ceivably, a second front, even if it spelled de-, feat, might save the Russians. If so, even a defeat might constitute a victory. It is to be hoped that in this critical moment, the best military thought will be evoked. Meanwhile, we may perhaps, too, be consoled by remembering that in previous times of crises, the Russians somehow came through. DEMOCRACY IS A WAY OF LIFE "For democracy is not a thing to be won, like a loving cup, and held forever. Democracy is no head of antlers to be mounted above the mantlepiece. Democracy is of the heart and of the hearth. It is a way of life. "Democracy must be rewon every day of our lives. It must be won 365 days a year, of every year. Democracy is a long, long pilgrimage. But we know our goal. And, as we strive for it, we shall approach it ever nearer. A way of life is to be measured by its objectives. The character of the pilgrim is revealed by the direction of his journey—not by the length of the road before him. Those who strive for freedom shall approach it. "Those whose goal is empire over the souls and bodies of men are not going in our direction. They can never reach our goal. And we will see to it that they shall never reach theirs. That is the lesson of today. That is our battle." —Paul V. McNutt, Federal Security Administrator, IN THE WIND Thanks to the Jewish Welfare Board for listing the outstanding Jewish heroes in the present war .. Corporal Meyer Levin, Lt.-Commander Solomon S. Isquith, Ensign Stanley Caplan and Ensign Ira Jeffrey are among them Truly a list that every American should know by heart Among the names mentioned for the Governorship of Puerto Rico is that of Dr. Herman B. Baruch, who is an expert on Caribbean questions though his name is not as well known as that of his brother, Bernard M. Baruch THIS AND THAT What impelled the New York Daily News, largest-circulation daily tabloid in the country, to fume so against immi. grants in a recent editorial? Such an un-American policy should not go unnoticed Pierre van Paassen recently had to use a "striking" argument to convince an anti-Semite that racial and religious intolerance has no place in our democracy Those Washington quarters that were most vociferous against Melvyn Douglas' OCD appointment some months ago are again complaining loudly now that he is taking time off (from a job for which he doesn't get paid) to make a picture We wonder what they'll find to beef about when he enlists in the Air Corps, a step he's said to be contemplating very seriously Hollywood, incidentally, is preparing a film on Thomas D. Brandeis, who backed the Czechs' national aspirations in the Wilsonian days WORLD OF LETTERS That "Samson and Delilah" version of Elliot Paul's that we told you about quite some time ago is coming out this winter in a volume that will contain six such Biblical stories retold ... To give you an idea what it'll be like, we may reveal that one chapter will be called "Queen Esther, the Beauty Contest Winner," and the whole book will be entitled "Gospel According to Hollywood" William B. Ziff, the Chicago magazine magnate whose "Coming Battle of Germany" is considered an important book on the question of air power in this war, is launching a new fiction magazine that will feature full-length novels in each issue Author Lewis Browne has spent a good part of the summer traveling from Army camp to Army camp, delivering lectures to the boys in training Novelist Louis Golding also has been doing some Army camp lecturing The high spot of his tour came at Fort Dix, where, after delivering his address, he took time out for some ping-pong—and beat all but one of his soldier opponents Louis Nizer, the attorney and author, is preparing a theme dealing with the subject of what we should do with the Germans after the war Novelist Franz Werfel, relates Leonard Lyons, receently was invited to attend a Refugee Dinner 'What?" was the refugee author's shocked comment "Are they eating them now?" ABOUT PEOPLE Professor Albert Einstein's physicians have ordered him to take things very easy Which means that organizations anxious to show the proper respect and consideration for the great scientist will not bother him with requests for testimonials, speeches and acceptance of membership on their committees ... It was Edward G. Robinson who recited excerpts from Abraham Lincoln's writings at a Hollywood performance last week of "Lincoln Portrait," a new composition by Aaron Copland, one of this country's most distinguished modern composers The Soviet picture "Inside Fighting Russia" has a scene showing a youth building a barricade (CONTINUED ON PAGE 8) THE LITTLE PEOPLE FIGHT "The little people fight today for their right to fight for themselves. Only under democracy can the right to protest—the right to declare and defend one's rights—be maintained. Vere the little people enjoy the ballot. Here their preferences count in the policies of their govrnment. Discrimination—based on anything but a man's sheer worth—must go. Discrimination against every race must go—Just as economic discrimination must go. But remember this: The little people—of every race, of every tongue, of every creed, and of every economic condition—have a clear national policy which is making and has made headway. Their security, their rights, are on the march. There is a Constitution—the Constitution of the United States—which makes the rights of every American citizen clear—a Constitution which establishes those rights in law. There is a Bill of Rights without which the little people of these United Slates would never have ratified that Conslitulion."—Paul V. McNult, Federal Security Administrator.

Friedman Guest Columnist This will be good news to every member of Sholem Lodge and to each member of the auxiliary. On this coming Tuesday evening, August 11th. the regular meeting of Sholem Lodg.: will be held at the air-conditioned ballroom of the Alcazar Hotel. There will, therefore, be no excuse for non-attendance. The hotel is centrally located for Miamians and Beachites. in addition to which there is the great incentive of air conditioning on a torrid night. A fine musical program has been arranged and there will be featured an address by Mr. Robert Fennell. head of the Morale Division of the Dade County Defense Counsel. He will tell us how B'nai B'rith can aid in morale upbuilding work. Election of delegates to the annual convention of the Florida State Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges to be held in Tampa Labor Day j week will take place. If you | want to go to this convention, be, "ire to be present Tuesday night Daddy Boxerman will give Ins monthly report to the Lodg" on | current activities of the ADL. A report will also be made concerni ing the contemplated memorial to be erected in Bay From Park honoring our boys in service, The entertainment committee will report on its plans for the August social which in all prohabilIty will be in the nature ot a dance for paid up members and their wives, etc. The salvage drive under the. leadership of Lou Heiman is coming along marvelously. Mrs. C. H. Reeder. head of the salvage drive of the Dade County Defense Counsel, called Lou the other day to congratulate him on the splendid progress of his committee. To date the committee has gathered 100.000 pound.of scrap metal and has received numerous requests for additional metal to be picked up. Many firms owned | by members of our Lodge have contributed trucks, drivers, help, pas, etc.. in collection of the salvage. These firms are National Brands. Inc., Florida Wholesale Grocery Company. Standard Wine & Spirits Co.. Inc.. A. it B. Pine and Metal Company. Adelman's Pipe and Steel Company, and Green Brothers. Inc. They certainly deserve the plaudits of the Lodge and the committee. Additional commendation is due Henry's Auto Parts, which has aided in the moving of all auto bodies. The appreciation of the Lodge <.lso gois to Adeiman's Pipe & Steel Company. 47 N. E. 25th St.. Sobel's Service Station, 1900 S. W. 8th Street, and Sam's Service Station. 200 Coral Way. | These three firms have donated a portion of their property as depositories for our scrap metal. The drive will continue for another two weeks. If you have any scrap metal, please call 3-0751 or 3-6391. I believe this is one of the finest projects B'nai B'rith has undertaken and it is going over with a bang. Last Monday a special meeting] of all unit directors of the Motcr Morps of the Transportation Division of the Dade County De( fense Counsel was held. It was | interesting to note that of the ten directors in charge of Dade j County, two were members of | Sholem Lodge. As I look back at what I have I written thus far in the column, j I take pride in belonging to an; organization that is as active as Sholem Lodge and whicn has taken such an active part in the j war effort. I do not think it is an idle boast to say that Sholem I Lodge is the outstanding Jewish organization in Dade County doing defense work and probably is around the top in Dade County organizations. You must realize that this work is in addition to the regular program of the Lodge in the field of Hillel. A. D. L. A. Z. A., charity, etc. You can show that you. too. are happy to be a member by paying your dues immediately and by bringing in new members to the Lodg^. I shall be looking forward to seeing you and your friends Tuesday night at the Alcazar Hotel, Let's make this the bigg"st meeting of the year. Remember the meeting hall will be air-conditioned.

To be housed in an edifice formerly used by another congregation, the building is already in the process of being completely redecorated inside and out. The roster of members subscribing to the charter included many long time residents, all active communally. The new synagogue will be known as "Schaarei Zedek" and will be located at 1545 S. W. 3rd Street. Services will be conducted daily as soon as alterations are completed and will be conducted in the orthodox manner. A Talmud Torah 'and Sunday School are in the formative stage as is a Ladies' Auxiliary. Temporary officers chosen unanimously to guide the affairs of the congregation, until a permanent constitution is approved, are A. Pepper, president; Max Mintzer. 1st vice president; Milton Weiner, 2nd vice president; Max Kupferstein, secretary' and Phillip Berkowitz, treasurer. The constitution and by-laws will be presented to the membership following the close of the membership drive already inaugurated by the new officers. Services for the High Holy Days will be held in the new synagague and the selection of a Cantor is now under consideration. London (WNS)— Nazi authorities in occupied Poland have decided to exterminate the estimated 600,000 Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, it was reported here this week by leaders of the Polish government-in-exile, following the reported surprise visit to Poland of Nazi Gestapo Chief Heinrich Himmler. Polish leaders stated that Himmler's visit to Nazi officials in Poland resulted in the decision to destroy the Jewish population of the former Polish capital. Bloody pogroms lasting several days in which hundreds of terror-stricken men, women and children were murdered broke out in the Warsaw ghetto soon after Himmler arrived. The Nazis plan to conceal their extermination scheme by announcing that the Jews will be transported from the ghetto to occupied Soviet territories for forced labor. Gestapo agents have posted signs throughout the ghetto warning the population to be prepared for deportation to Eastern Europe. Polish spokesmen disclosed that "up to now two train-loads of Jews have departed toward their doom without anything • ;rther being heard from them." The deported Jews, it was said, were ordered to take with them their luggage as well as jewelry and other valuables. The victims were probably stripped of their valuables before being executed somewhere outside of Warsaw. You don't need a ration card to buy U. S.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 7, 1942 +Jewlsti tkridinri PAGE SEVEN Pieces of Hate by RICHARD E. GUTSTADT National Director of the AntiDefamation League of B'nai B'rith (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) efforts to create dissension and hatred. A recent issue of his organ. "Our Common Cause," bears the subtitle: "ALL THE NEWS THAT THE JEW-CONTROLLED PRESS DARE NOT PRINT!" In a letter to President Roosevelt, published in this scurrilous sheet, Smythe stated: "We know that the doors of the White House are always open to JEWS, COMMUNISTS, PINKS, WIDE-EYED RADICALS, SO-CALLED LIBERALS and OUTCAST PARASITE REFUGEES Since you have become the Chief Executive of the Nation, the rights of the majority (Christians) have become outlawed and the JEW minority the RULING CLASS." Smythe's tirade indicates the fervor with which he has embraced Nazi racial tenets. He made futile attempts to awaken national interest in his so-called veterans' association and, significantly, published this notice: •We are asking all SOCIAL JUSTICE DISTRIBUTORS to get in touch with us relative to the distribution of "OUR COMMON CAUSE." • • • Among those indicted as Nazi stooges by the government were Olav E. Tietzow, an agitator with a long record as an anti-democrat and anti-Semite. Tietzow's latest exploit was calculated to arouse the Negroes of America, profiting by the dissatisfaction against the Negro in war industries and in the armed forces. Tietzow recently issued an inflammatory handbill titled THE NEGRO MENACE, reading in part: "Racial equality was IMPOSED upon America by Lincoln some day his name will be cursed by all whites. The Jewish New Deal continues on the path of racial destruction by catering to the colored peoples in a political and even social way." Tietzow viciously "demanded" the immediate "disarmament of and dismissal from military service of all Negroes" and "death by hanging for negroes having violated white women." He ended on a typically Nazi note: "Fellow whites! Arvan Mipremacy must be re-established in these United States!" Another indicted "paper patriot" is Charles B. Hudson of Omaha, distributor of a so-called newsletter "AMERICA IN DANGER" whose July release offered for sale a number of books including "The Octopus," scurrilous book which assails the Jews, the government and the B'nai B'rith, which the government charges was written by Hudson in collaboration with Mrs. Elizabeth Billing of Chicago, notorious woman agitator who likewise was indicted on three counts. The government charges that the pair used the name of a non-existent clergyman, "Rev. Frank Woodruff Johnson," to mask their identities as the actual authors of this piece. A • • • An anonymous, mimeographed handout, "The Jew Makes a Sacfifiee," has made its appearance in New York, Baltimore and Chicago. In the vicious article, the J cw is termed an "oriental, hyphenated American propagandist ELECTIONS TO THE ZIONIST MEET HELD OVER COUNTRY Washington, D. C.:—August 31, has been set as the deadline for completing membership enrollment for the purpose of qualifying delegates to the 45th Annual Convention of the Zionist Organization of America, which will convene in four-day session from October 14th through October 18th in the Hotel New Yorker New York City, the national headquarters of the organization announced here today. Calling upon the officers of all Zionist Districts and Regions to utilize the month of August for an intensified membership activity, Mr. Simon Shetzer, executive director of the Z. O. A., declared that all indications point to the Z. O. A. coming to the Convention with the largest membership on record. It is announced that some of the convention sessions will be held jointly with Hadassah, which will be meeting at the same time at the Pennsylvania Hotel in New York City. The main proceedings, which will deal with vital problems affecting the postwar status of Palestine and the future of the Zionist movement in this country, will be presided over by Judge Louis E. Levinthai, president of the Z. O. A. for bloody Joe (Stalin) and the British (Jewish) empire." This anonymous piece of scurrility, in common with the material issued by those now indicted, seeks to arouse, racial and religious animosities which would be reflected in a lower morale of civilians on the home front. Democracy is vilified, and the sheet continues: "As he (the Jew) lays concealed or slithers around within 'democracy' part of his technique is to stress the need for tolerance; particularly so if—as in Germany —he is caught at his unclean work." Could anything be more calculated to lend encouragement to Hitler and Co., and especially to that small but menacing fringe of Americans who are contemptuous of democracy, who might not even be averse to pogroms in the U. S. A. if they could force an Axis-dominated peace and bring about an end to the American democratic system? Of such stuff is propaganda of the cruder sort made. The mouthings and writings of virtually all of those persons now indicted equal this for scurrility and venom. Quite apart from their antiJewish content, this poisoned matter is a direct blow at the morale of our armed forces and, as such, renders its creators subject to appropriate penalties. PELLEY TO Indianapolis (WNS) — William Dudley Pelley, professional antiSemite and pro-Nazi even after Pearl Harbor, was accused of adhering to the Axis propaganda line after America's entry into the war, as the Government closed its case against the Fascist Silver Shirt leader who, with two associates, is being tried on sedition charges. "NATIVE FASCISTS ARE THIS COUNTRY'S WORST ENEMY" Pelley was convicted and declared guilty on 11 counts of sedition and conspiracy by a Federal Court jury Wednesday night. While Government witnesses showed that Pelley's statements and articles appearing in his magazine. The Galilean, were almost word for word reproductions of Nazi and Japanese propaganda, Pelley announced that he would call as witnesses Charles A. Lindbergh, pre-war isolationist and America First Committee spokesman, and Maj. Gen. Geo. Van Horn Moseley. U. S. Army, retired, who once aspired to be America's first Fascist dictator.

Jewish-American Cuisine Reasonable Rates Very convenient connections by bus and train direct to Hendersonville Under the Management of Joe and Eddie Rubin Hotel Operators of Miami Beach, Fla. New York (WNS)—Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Acency for Palestine and of the WZO. who came to the rescue of Great Britain in World War I by discovering a method to make synthetic acetone, needed in the manufacture of explosives, may now solve one of America's knottiest war problems—the rubber shortage. Declaring that earlier reports that President Roosevelt had Chief Justice Harlan F. Stone of the United States Supreme Court make an investigation and give the nation the facts on the rubber situation were without foundation, Time Magazine said: "But Washington insiders were aware of another figure; bald, bearded Dr. Weizmann of London and Palestine, noted chemist, noted Zionist. Dr. Weizmann had a date in Washington to confer with Presidential Advisor Judge Samuel I. Rosenman. Reports were that Dr. Weizmann. who did not claim to know all the facts about synthetic rubber, nevertheless knew more of them than any other one man, perhaps could set the record straight. "In World War I. Dr. Weizmann's skill got Britain out of a worse jam than the U. S. rubber shortage. Britain was desperate for acetone, needed to make explosives. It had to be distilled from wood, and there were hardly enough trees in the world to supply the demand. Dr. Weizmann found a way to make synthetic acetone, solved the shortage overnight, in return won the British promise of a homeland for Jews in Palestine." New York (WNS)—Following the round-up of the 28 pro-Nazis and anti-Semites charged with conspiring to impair the morale of the country's armed forces, Carey Longmire, radio commentator, warned this week that native Fascists "are the worst enemies this country has." "They hate President Roosevent," Mr. Longmire said. "Many say he started the war by 'threatening' Hitler and Hirohito. They hate Jews, negroes, labor unions and a lot of other things. They claim they hate Hitler, too, but they're working for him even if they may not know it. "Suppose Hitler smashes on to victory over Russia. He can organize all Europe to work for him. The war might be in a sort of stalemate for years. What would our home-grown Fascists be doing then? Just the same as the French Fascists did. They'd start saying: "Why not make a deal with Hitler? He'd propably let us alone.' That's exactly the kind of talk Hitler wants to hear. He'd make any promise to get peace. Then he'd try to get thousands of Nazi agents working inside America, and when he felt the time was ripe, he'd stab us in the back so quickly we might not be able to strike back." HE! TELLS OF ENTS OF PRERO AND LORGE NAZIS EXECUTED 2G,000 POLISH JEWS —Buy War Bonds TodayMade From Fresh Oranges Geneva (WNS)—Further evidence that the Nazi authorities are going ahead with their scheme to wipe out the Jewish population of Poland, as a forerunner to the destruction of all European Jewry, was received this week in the form of reports of the slaughter of 26.000 Polish Jews outside of the Lublin ghetto. The massacre of these 26.000 Jewish men, women and children brought to 110.000 the number of Polish Jews murdered by the Nazis in the last two months. (Conservative estimates have placed the number of Polish Jews murdered since the Nazi invasion of Poland in September, 1939, at 700.00.) The massacre of the 26.000 Lublin Jews was reported to have followed the visit of Gestapo Chief Heinrich Himmlcr to Warsaw for coasultation with Nazi officials there. Himmler reportedly informed the German authorities in Poland of the future Nazi course of action with regard to the Jews. Nazi executions of Jews have taken place recently in other Polish cities and in Russian cities now occupied by the Germans. Nazi firing squads executed 47 Jews in the city of Radom. Several hundred German Jews, who were sent to Minsk as compulsory laborers several months ago, were reported to have been wiped out. Washington:—Three rabbis especially-trained to deal with the religious and social-welfare problems of Jewish young people through their service as directors of B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundations this week placed that experience at the disposal of the armed forces of the United States when they resigned as Hillel directors to become Army and Navy chaplains. The three B'nai B'rith Hillel directors who have become chaplains are: Rabbi Bertram Klausner of the Hillel Foundation at the University of Alabama; Rabbi Samuel Sandmel of the Hillel Foundation at the University of North Carolina; and Rabbi Max Eichorn of the Hillel Foundation at Florida College for Women. Rabbi Klausner is stationed at Camp Forrest, Tenn. Rabbi Sandmel has been assigned to the U. S. Naval Station at Norfolk, Va. Rabbi Eichorn is serving at a new army post at Bartonsburg. S. C. Rabbi Morris Kertzer, director of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation at the University of Iowa, is spending his summer as a volunteer chaplain for the Jewish Welfare Board at Fort Riley, Kansas. Three other Hillel directors have applied for chaplaincies. Louis Heiman, chairman of the B'nai B'rith State Student's Union Committee announces that Rabbi Amram Prero will fill the vacancy at the University of Florida for the Gainesville district, and Rabbi Ernst Lorge will fulfill a similar service at the Florida State College for Women, at Tallahassee. Rabbi Prero served as Rabbi for two years at Rochester, Minnesota, ministering to the needs of the local community and the patients at the Mayo Clinic. For the last two years he answered the call of the Jewish community at Lexington, Ky. Rabbi Lorge is a refugee from Germany, coming to the United States in 1935. ONE BUCK...

Meetings of Jewish workers in Biro-Bidjan and in other areas resulted in decisions to increase production and to send more food and military supplies to the front lines. In addition, Jewish workers in Biro-Bidjan have voted to take military training at the end of each working day. The Jewish workers gather at special training fields after they have completed their day's work and are drilled in the tactics of defensive and offensive warfare by veteran Red Army officers. The Jews are preparing for any eventuality, although their belief in the ability of the Soviet Army to stem the Nazi tide is as strong as ever. i fcJjGUST BROSTJJ^ J~ la the BEST.' -iei?^W^Mp"'§f [WHfBI --#ia^^^;j^%i i s^3{'£s^ I

PAGE EIGHT Jm1st Heridkir FRIDAY, AUGU ST 7. l 942 FROM THE SWIVEL CHAIR William L Boxerman Getting Into the Scrap The progagandists for Nazi Germany, having exhausted the stock of lies about the terrific profits made by rubber dealers, now are trying to apply the same techniques to the steel scrap campaign ... It is being whispered around town that the '"Jewishowned junk yards" are going to make a fortune from the collection of steel scrap Fortunately, the Dade County Defense Council has been on its toes It has emphasized that although it cannot handle the scrap directly, the government has "pegged" the prices so that no dealer could I reap exorbitant profits, even if! he were so minded. The B'nai B'rith Lodge, cooperating in the current campaign, has set up a salvage comj mittee under the chairmanship I of Louis Heiman ... At the end i of the first two weeks this com-! mittee had already assembled 100,00 pounds of scrap. When we say the "committee."' j we really mean Louis Heiman We pay tribute here to the enthusiasm with which he has' tackled this patriotic job ... It is typical of the man that he' practically has laid aside his law j business and is devoting himself to stimulating scrap collection through the B'nai B"rith. We could use more communal workers like Lou and less of some others who have sought positions of trust in B'nai B'rith and elsewhere in the Jewish community for personal aggrondizement. O Tempora, O Mores The spectacle of a Jew on trial, charged with the bribery of army officials, is deplorable enough But the sight of a past president of B'nai B'rith. former chairman of its anti-Defamation committee. I etc. coming to his legal defense, j makes one wonder on what basis I people attain positions of trust in | the Jewish community More! over, the fact that this defense is I undertaken on the ground that |'" it will serve the best interests of the Jewish community," causes j one to remark. "O Tempora, O i mores!" Oh we know that there are j those Jewish lawyers who will tell you that the business of an attorney is to defend clients Of course, a man is entitled to I counsel There's no argument on that score But from the public relations point of view, we maintain it's bad business for any Jewish lawyer, particularly a "leader." to be going to bat for another Jew accused of an act that, whether we wish it or not. tends to impugn the patriotism of Jews generally For. unfortunately, we cannot escape the responsibility thrust upon us by the outside world for being our brothers" keepers There is, we imagine, more than an ample supply of non-Jewish attorneys available in Greater Miami Why. then, must it be the B'nai B'rith president who injects himself into the situation? There are Jewish communities in which incidents of this kind could not happen Why? Simply because in communities with an older, stable Jewish population, a B'nai B'rith president would be ashamed to court the disfavor of certain of his fellowJews But. perhaps, it is expecting too much that in Miami, a new area of settlement with a hetrogenous Jewish population. %  even a B'nai B'rith president should be too much concerned! about the welfare of the community as a whole Conceivably the time will come, after MiSTRICTLY Tidbits from Everywhere by PHINEAS J. BIRON ami has had a chance to stabilize itself, when communal ""leaders" will be guided less by material considerations and more by what is good for the Jewish group as a whole. No Comment Needed We reprint without comment (because we don't think it's necessary) an advertisement appearing in a filthy rag published in this area ...

A German, it seems, had a terrible toothache, and decided to have the bothersome molar removed So he went to one of Berlin's foremost dentists, who examined his mouth, took J^-rays of the tooth, went into consultation with an assistant and then finally said to the patient: "We can extract that tooth, but it will cost you ten thousand dollars, American money" The sufferer couldn't believe he had heard correctly "Ten thousand dollars!" he cried "Ten thousand dollars to pull one tooth? I never heard of such a thing!" The dentist shrugged, and pointed out: "My dear sir, you forget that we'll have to extract that tooth through your ear" "Through my ear!" the patient exclaimed, now convinced that he had strayed into the psychopathic ward "Why can't you pull it through my mouth?" "This is Germany," the dentist replied stiffly "Nobody is allowed to open his mouth here" All of which reminds us of the story of Maxie Rosenbloom. the actor-boxer, tells of three men sitting on a park bench in Germany One was reading the afternoon paper, and kept saying "Ts-ts-ts" to himself The second man, his curiosity aroused, craned his neck to read the story, and pretty soon he too was saying "Ts-ts-ts" So the third man got up to leave, saying: "If you two are going to discuss the war. I can't stay here." PALMER Funeral Chapel 200S W. FLAOLfl ST. "SSSiSST 9-2664 BEFORE YOU BUY see LEON ELKIN with METROPOLITAN LIFE INS. CO.

In part: "Let us realize that we
^re fighting for our lives .
Germans aren't fit to live with
decent nations The beast of
Berlin must pay for his crimes
[i- must his people When a
nan kills, his life is taken in
punishment When a nation
kills, it must be punished the
fame way."

|to the Nazi atrocities.

Iday observance, messages of
I sympathy were received from a
Inumber of ministers in Greater
iMiami, among which were the
Hollowing: Rev. W. G. Stracener,
iRiverside Baptist Church: "With
I compassionate concern for our
Ifellow men, in the name of jus-
Itice, freedom and fair play, our
[voices must cry out against the
[butchery and starvation now com-
Imonly practiced by those forces
I opposed to all liberty-loving
peoples; not only on countless
Ithousands of individuals but re-
Icently on whole communities as
well. It is my prayer that with all
the militancy of a vital faith in
I the living God, we may take
our stand in word and deed
| against these Godless cruelties."
Dr. R. L. Allen, Trinity Metho-
dist Church: "As we contrast our
position today with the rest of
the world, we feel profoundly
grateful for our position and very
sympathetic toward the rest, who
are less fortunate. I am sure we

New York (WNS)Frieda S.
Ml"er, State Industrial Commis-

mittee on Discrimination in Em-
ployment of the State War Coun-
cil, reported this week that "in-

Denver (WNS) Mrs. Sera-
phine Eppstein Pisko, honorary
secretary of the National Jewish
Hospital at Denver and active in
philanthropic and women's af-
fairs for over 50 years, died here
last week after a long illness.
She was 81 years old.
Born in St. Joseph. Missouri,
on January 1, 1881, she became
interested in the hospital in 1900,
a yeaf after it was opened by
B'nai B'rith. Mrs. Pisko not only
devoted herself to the hospital
throughout her life, but was a
prominent figure in women's ac-
tivities. She was one of the two
American delegates representing
the women of the United States
at the meeting of the executive
committee of the International
Women's Council at the Hague,
Holland, in 1922.
Berne (WNS)The mass meet-
ings held recently in New York
and other American cities to con-
demn Nazi atrocities against the
Jews in occupied Europe caused
the Nazi radio to break out into
a rash of anti-Jewish charges,
one of them being that American
Jews were demanding trie confis-
cation of the property and wealth
of all those of German-descent
i in the United States.
The Nazi regime was apparent-
ly stung by President Roosevelt's
declaration made to the huge
mass meeting in Now York, that
the Nazis would be held to strict
account for their crimes against
the helpless, civilian populations
ol the occupied territories.
The Nazi radio ranted that Am-
erican Jews were pressing tho
Government to confiscate the
property of German-born per-
sons and to turn it over to Jewish
victims of Nazi anti-Semitism.
Another charge was that Ameri-
can Jews were urging the Gov-
ernment to seize German deposits
and other wealth now frozen in
U. S. banks and assign it to the
Jews as compensation for the
damage done to Jews in Europe.
Still another charge was that the
Jews were advocating steriliza-
tion for all Germans, men and
women, in the United States.

Relentless government inquiry
into the activities of the Little
Fuehrersthose who would in-
troduce Axis ideologies into this
countryhas led to the expected
indictment of 28 persons whose
fulminations assumed a treason-
able tone, once our nation was
at war. These sowers of racial
and religious hates met their
Waterloo when they endeavored
to promote disaffection in the
armed forces of the United States.
Gratifying as these indictments
must be to all decent Americans,
there yet remain in the country
numerous persons and agencies
which would assume the meretri-
cious role of Jew-baiting and
carry on the efforts of the 28 in-
dicted to spread hate and sus-
picion in the nation. For ex-
ample, in Boston a new eight-
page tabloid has just made its
appearance, implying that it is
the successor to Coughhn s "So-
cial Justice." The publication in-
tends to "expose" a worthy pro-
democratic organization known
as the American Irish Defense
Association, obviously because
of the efforts of
the latter group
to nullify the ef-
forts of the
spreaders of
hate. The AIDA
had encouraged
the study o f
vicious rumors
which impede
our national war
______ effort, and is in
uie iuieiTOlll of organizations
seeking exposure of the forces
promoting defeatism and suspi-
cion of our allies.

An organization known as "Pa-
triots of the Republic" continues
to meet in New York City, and to
indulge in such fantastic state-
ments as the recent one assert-
ing that the eight notorious Nazi
saboteurs had been "railroaded"
by the FBI, and that the arrested
Nazis were not spies (despite the
fact that the men have con-
fessed.)
One member boldly asserted
that Hitler is winning "because
he is right!" The chairman of the
meeting attacked Japan repeat-
edly, but significantly failed to
identify Nazi Germany as Am-
merica's foe, though the casual
listener might very well think
that Great Britain was our most
formidable enemy, and that Ger-
many was our ally, so warped is
this group on the subject of the
war.

agencies, was deservedly indicted

Maybe you feel that you have already provided ade-

to some organization which offers burial space. Bui
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-

THOUGHT he had provided properly.
No matter how long you have been a member of an

pletely swept aside by selfish-
ness of greed and power, in the
belief that might makes right, we
of America, should be a shining
example of fraternal love and
understanding, that the world
may realize that is is possible for
men under God to work in peace
for enjoyment of the highest
ideals."
Dr. Daniel Iverson, Shenandoah
Presbyterian Church: "All of us
in America find ourselves sympa-
thetic to the persecuted masses
of Europe. It is difficult some-
times to differentiate between
the truth and propaganda, but,
having visited Europe in 1939,
and seeing the practical evidence
of the persecution of the Jew, I
can well believe the stories reach-
ing this country regarding the
terrible persecution of the con-
quered nations. This we be-
lieve, will spur us on to a victory
that will guarantee our own pro-
tection, and will give again to
these people the opportunity to
live unmolested. This is what we
are fighting for regardless of
what men may say as to other
issues. All other issues are sec-
ondary."
Mayor Cliff H. Reeder issued
this special proclamation for the
occasion: "WHEREAS officials
of Nazi Germany have attempted,
with brutality beyond descrip-
tion, to stamp out religious free-
dom, and to substitute for this
spiritual solace, a Pagan adora-
tion of gods of their own crea-
tion, and
WHEREAS God fearing peo-
ples of the earth have shuddered
at the unspeakable cruelties vi-
sited upon both Christian and
Jew to shatter their spiritual be-
liefs,
NOW THEREFORE, I, Cliff H.
Reeder, Mayor of the City of Mi-
ami, do thoroughly indorse the
action of the Miami Round Table
of the National Conference of
Christians and Jews, in designat-
ing Sunday, August 2, 1942, as n
day set apart for all of us to offer
our prayers and works for this
suffering humanity, and to pledge
anew our strength to speed the
day when these acts of barbarism
are eliminated and man may once
again worship his God according
to the dictates of his conscience."

NOTES
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
Meet Larry Grossberg Serving
Two Year Term on The
Board
Larry Grossberg was elected to
serve a two year term on the
Board of the "Y" last election.
He was born in the little town of
Galatz, Rumania on September 9,
1892. Larry came to the United
States in 1920 and resided in Key
West. Florida. There he married
the former Miss Anita Mandel.
In 1928 they moved to Miami
and opened up the Vanity Dress
Shop at 126 N. Miami Ave. Mr.
and Mrs. Grossberg are the proud
parents of two boys, Frederick, 20
and Sidney, 12 years of age. Fred
enlisted in the Army Air Corps
recently. Larry has been active
in YMHA work for over seven
years. He has been instrumental
in bringing in many new mem-
bers to the organization. In Lar-
ry's own words, his greatest de-
sire is to see the building of a
Jewish Community Center before
he "kicks the bucket."
Home Camp
Our Executive Director re-
ceived a letter this week which
we quote as follows: "Enclosed
will find check for $10.00 to be
added to the camp fund which
will make some boy or girl happy
who is less fortunate.
Have followed up every year
the wonderful work you have ac-
complished with your summer
camp, of course not forgetting
the good work in establishing
your other activities also. May I
add that I feel very proud to be
a member of the YMHA. It is my
regret that I cannot be a more
actitve member, but being in
business and living at such a dis-
tance makes that impossible.
The YMHA has made such
great strides and is doing such
wonderful work in only a short
time, that since I cannot be ac-
tive in helping to build such a
worthwhile organization, this is
my humble way of contributing
towards the good of my commun-
ity. While the sum is not large,
yet it is substantial on my part,
and believe me it is given with
all sincerity and good wishes for
the continuation of future sue-1
cess." Name withheld on request. :
This letter needs no further'
elaboration. We are very happy i
to find in our midst civic minded i
persons who appreciate the worth
of an organization like the "Y".

MIAMI. FLORIDA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 7. 1942
ACTION--THE ANSWER
The almost unbelievably uncivilized Nazi
brutality to Polish Jewry culminated this week
in a London report that Nazi authorities in Po-
land had decided to exterminate" the estimated
600,000 Jews in the Warsaw ghetto. This charge
made by leaders of the Polish government-in-
exile in London was backed by reports of blood
pogroms in the Warsaw ghetto following the ar-
rival of Gestapo Chief Heinrich Himmler.
The details of such pogroms is as well-
known to the civilized world as is the bloody
butchery of Himmler. The senseless indiscri-
minate slaughter of innocent and helpless men,
women and children has certainly not ceased
to horrify the world but it is no longer a startling
occurence. Such action has come to be an inte-
gral part of Nazi decadence and degradation
and an indication of its sure defeat. However,
today more than ever such reports infuse us
with a rising spirit of determination to win this
war. Victory becomes, if possible, a more
pressing and more immediate concern.
All over the world news of such nature ex-
cites greater effort and sacrifice on the part of
our soldiers and workers toward the liberation
of enslaved mankind. Outraged by the reports
of Nazi atrocities against the civilian popula-
tions of occupied countries, the British Labor
Party strongly demanded that the United Na-
tions take immediate steps to halt these atro-
cities. Again, nine of the United Nations called
upon President Roosevelt to extend a strong
and last warning to Germany against the "bar-
baric and inhuman crimes" committed daily.
Aside from the moral indignation Nazi bar-
barities have aroused has come news of tangi-
ble results from the greater efforts of people
and individuals toward winning the war quick-
ly. Dr. Weizmann who in World War I, dis-
covered synthetic acetone for a desperate Bri-
tain, may now help to provide the solution for
the U. S. rubber shortage.
With the Nazi menace growing daily, thou-
sands of Jews in Biro-Bidjan have intensified
their military training programs to provide
new reserves for the embattled Soviet Armies.
In America, we continue to round up our pTO-
Nazis and anti-Semites in our effort to ciean
up the home front. What better answer can the
world make to the reports of Nazi atrocities?
"There are two words today by which we
shape our thoughts and deeds. One is Ameri-
canism and the other is victory. The first is
yours by right of herilaqe, a right for which you
have fought and which you have treasured
above all other possessions.
"The second, which now stirs the soul and
determination of every true American, will be
yours because the members of B'nai B'rith are
fighting, working and giving in unity to achieve
victory."Governor Green of Illinois.
"This great nation, released from the bonds
of the past by the Declaration of Independence,
is and will continue to be the Zion of all faiths
and the promised land of all peoples who once
have touched its shores. America will be a land
flowing with milk and honey to those who have
faith in human liberly and to those who will
build for all their fellow men for freedom on
that faith."Rabbi Jonah B. Wise.

"There are some who still seek appease-
ment or are willing to consider a negotiated
peace. If they are stupid enough or evil enough
to believe that they can save their properties
or their skins by compromise or appeasement,
they are ignorant or blind to the history of to-
talitarian aggression. Nothing short of com-
plete victory will save our liberties. A stale-
mate would, in effect, be just as dangerous to
democracy as defeat "Governor Herbert E.
Lehman.

A SECOND FRONT
A few weeks back, the Nazi armies seemed
to be rolling through the desert at a speed
which made the United Nations tremble. They
foresaw an almost immediate occupation of
Alexandria and plans for blowing up the Suez
were already being discussed. The Nazis
would find nothing to block their way in the
Near East. The oil fields of Iraq and Iran would
soon be at their disposal and the Nazis would j
be able to form a junction with the Japanese |
troops invading India.
Happily, the great disaster that loomed
was checked. The danger there of course still
persists, but at least for the time it was halted.
But now an even more severe crisis faces the
United Nations with the advances made to-
ward the Caucasus by the Axis.
Mr. Litvinoff has been conferring with the
President and the cry everywhere iscreate a
second front. Public officials, however, say I
nothing of such a second front.
It may be taken for granted that the Presi-
dent and Churchill and other leaders are as
cognisant of the danger as is the public. The
question that they must answer isare there
the men and supplies ready for such a second j
front? But it is not purely a statistical question
that they must answer. There is a matter of
strategyof military logisticsinvolved. Con-'
ceivably, a second front, even if it spelled de-,
feat, might save the Russians. If so, even a de-
feat might constitute a victory.
It is to be hoped that in this critical mom-
ent, the best military thought will be evoked.
Meanwhile, we may perhaps, too, be con-
soled by remembering that in previous times
of crises, the Russians somehow came through.
DEMOCRACY IS A WAY OF LIFE
"For democracy is not a thing to be won,
like a loving cup, and held forever. Democracy
is no head of antlers to be mounted above the
mantlepiece. Democracy is of the heart and
of the hearth. It is a way of life.
"Democracy must be rewon every day of
our lives. It must be won 365 days a year, of
every year. Democracy is a long, long pilgrim-
age. But we know our goal. And, as we strive
for it, we shall approach it ever nearer. A way
of life is to be measured by its objectives. The
character of the pilgrim is revealed by the di-
rection of his journeynot by the length of the
road before him. Those who strive for freedom
shall approach it.
"Those whose goal is empire over the souls
and bodies of men are not going in our direc-
tion. They can never reach our goal. And we
will see to it that they shall never reach theirs.
That is the lesson of today. That is our battle."
Paul V. McNutt, Federal Security Adminis-
trator,
IN THE WIND
Thanks to the Jewish Welfare Board for listing the out-
standing Jewish heroes in the present war .. Corporal Meyer
Levin, Lt.-Commander Solomon S. Isquith, Ensign Stanley
Caplan and Ensign Ira Jeffrey are among them Truly a
list that every American should know by heart Among
the names mentioned for the Governorship of Puerto Rico is
that of Dr. Herman B. Baruch, who is an expert on Caribbean
questions though his name is not as well known as that of his
brother, Bernard M. Baruch .
THIS AND THAT
What impelled the New York Daily News, largest-circu-
lation daily tabloid in the country, to fume so against immi.
grants in a recent editorial? Such an un-American policy
should not go unnoticed Pierre van Paassen recently had
to use a "striking" argument to convince an anti-Semite that
racial and religious intolerance has no place in our demo-
cracy Those Washington quarters that were most vocifer-
ous against Melvyn Douglas' OCD appointment some months
ago are again complaining loudly now that he is taking time
off (from a job for which he doesn't get paid) to make a pic-
ture We wonder what they'll find to beef about when he
enlists in the Air Corps, a step he's said to be contemplating
very seriously Hollywood, incidentally, is preparing a
film on Thomas D. Brandeis, who backed the Czechs' national
aspirations in the Wilsonian days .
WORLD OF LETTERS
That "Samson and Delilah" version of Elliot Paul's that
we told you about quite some time ago is coming out this
winter in a volume that will contain six such Biblical stories
retold ... To give you an idea what it'll be like, we may re-
veal that one chapter will be called "Queen Esther, the
Beauty Contest Winner," and the whole book will be entitled
"Gospel According to Hollywood" William B. Ziff, the
Chicago magazine magnate whose "Coming Battle of Ger-
many" is considered an important book on the question of
air power in this war, is launching a new fiction magazine
that will feature full-length novels in each issue Author
Lewis Browne has spent a good part of the summer travel-
ing from Army camp to Army camp, delivering lectures to
the boys in training Novelist Louis Golding also has been
doing some Army camp lecturing The high spot of his
tour came at Fort Dix, where, after delivering his address, he
took time out for some ping-pongand beat all but one of
his soldier opponents Louis Nizer, the attorney and author,
is preparing a theme dealing with the subject of what we
should do with the Germans after the war Novelist Franz
Werfel, relates Leonard Lyons, receently was invited to at-
tend a Refugee Dinner 'What?" was the refugee author's
shocked comment "Are they eating them now?" .
ABOUT PEOPLE
Professor Albert Einstein's physicians have ordered him
to take things very easy Which means that organizations
anxious to show the proper respect and consideration for
the great scientist will not bother him with requests for testi-
monials, speeches and acceptance of membership on their
committees ... It was Edward G. Robinson who recited ex-
cerpts from Abraham Lincoln's writings at a Hollywood per-
formance last week of "Lincoln Portrait," a new composition
by Aaron Copland, one of this country's most distinguished
modern composers The Soviet picture "Inside Fighting
Russia" has a scene showing a youth building a barricade

THE LITTLE PEOPLE FIGHT
"The little people fight today for their right
to fight for themselves. Only under democracy
can the right to protestthe right to declare
and defend one's rightsbe maintained. Vere
the little people enjoy the ballot. Here their
preferences count in the policies of their gov-
rnment. Discriminationbased on anything but
a man's sheer worthmust go. Discrimination
against every race must goJust as economic
discrimination must go. But remember this:
The little peopleof every race, of every ton-
gue, of every creed, and of every economic
conditionhave a clear national policy which
is making and has made headway. Their secur-
ity, their rights, are on the march. There is a
Constitutionthe Constitution of the United
Stateswhich makes the rights of every Am-
erican citizen cleara Constitution which es-
tablishes those rights in law. There is a Bill of
Rights without which the little people of these
United Slates would never have ratified that

insure and hasten victory a very
important part has been assigned
to the collection of essential war
materials. We are pleased to note
the splendid share of this work
assumed by the local B'nai B'rith
Lodge and we are further gra-
tified that two of our stalwart
members Mr. N. Adelman and
Mr. E. Albert Pallot take such a
leading part in this essential en-
terprise.

OT
B'nai B'rith
Notes
BY AL GREEN
by Milton A. Friedman
Guest Columnist
This will be good news to ev-
ery member of Sholem Lodge
and to each member of the auxil-
iary. On this coming Tuesday
evening, August 11th. the regular
meeting of Sholem Lodg.: will be
held at the air-conditioned ball-
room of the Alcazar Hotel. There
will, therefore, be no excuse for
non-attendance. The hotel is
centrally located for Miamians
and Beachites. in addition to
which there is the great incentive
of air conditioning on a torrid
night. A fine musical program
has been arranged and there will
be featured an address by Mr.
Robert Fennell. head of the Mo-
rale Division of the Dade County
Defense Counsel. He will tell
us how B'nai B'rith can aid in
morale upbuilding work. Elec-
tion of delegates to the annual
convention of the Florida State
Federation of B'nai B'rith Lodges
to be held in Tampa Labor Day j
week will take place. If you |
want to go to this convention, be,
"ire to be present Tuesday night
Daddy Boxerman will give Ins
monthly report to the Lodg" on |
current activities of the ADL. A
report will also be made concern- i
ing the contemplated memorial
to be erected in Bay From Park
honoring our boys in service,
The entertainment committee will
report on its plans for the Aug-
ust social which in all prohabil-
Ity will be in the nature ot a
dance for paid up members and
their wives, etc.
The salvage drive under the.
leadership of Lou Heiman is com-
ing along marvelously. Mrs. C.
H. Reeder. head of the salvage
drive of the Dade County Defense
Counsel, called Lou the other
day to congratulate him on the
splendid progress of his commit-
tee. To date the committee has
gathered 100.000 pound.- of scrap
metal and has received numerous
requests for additional metal to
be picked up. Many firms owned |
by members of our Lodge have
contributed trucks, drivers, help,
pas, etc.. in collection of the sal-
vage. These firms are National
Brands. Inc., Florida Wholesale
Grocery Company. Standard Wine ,
& Spirits Co.. Inc.. A. it B. Pine
and Metal Company. Adelman's
Pipe and Steel Company, and
Green Brothers. Inc. They cer-
tainly deserve the plaudits of
the Lodge and the committee.
Additional commendation is due
Henry's Auto Parts, which has
aided in the moving of all auto
bodies. The appreciation of the
Lodge <.lso gois to Adeiman's
Pipe & Steel Company. 47 N. E.
25th St.. Sobel's Service Station,
1900 S. W. 8th Street, and Sam's
Service Station. 200 Coral Way. |
These three firms have donated
a portion of their property as de-
positories for our scrap metal.
The drive will continue for an-
other two weeks. If you have
any scrap metal, please call 3-0751
or 3-6391. I believe this is one
of the finest projects B'nai B'rith !
has undertaken and it is going
over with a bang.
Last Monday a special meeting]
of all unit directors of the Motcr '
Morps of the Transportation Di-
vision of the Dade County De-(
fense Counsel was held. It was |
interesting to note that of the
ten directors in charge of Dade j
County, two were members of |
Sholem Lodge.
As I look back at what I have I
written thus far in the column, j
I take pride in belonging to an;
organization that is as active as
Sholem Lodge and whicn has
taken such an active part in the j
war effort. I do not think it is *
an idle boast to say that Sholem I
Lodge is the outstanding Jewish
organization in Dade County do-
ing defense work and probably
is around the top in Dade County
organizations. You must realize
that this work is in addition to
the regular program of the Lodge
in the field of Hillel. A. D. L. A.
Z. A., charity, etc. You can show
that you. too. are happy to be a
member by paying your dues im-
mediately and by bringing in
new members to the Lodg^. I
shall be looking forward to see-
ing you and your friends Tues-
day night at the Alcazar Hotel,
Let's make this the bigg"st meet-
ing of the year. Remember the
meeting hall will be air-condi-
tioned.

President Greater Miami
Rabbinic Association
A charter was granted this
week approving the formation of
a new synagogue for the South-
west area. To be housed in an
edifice formerly used by another
congregation, the building is al-
ready in the process of being com-
pletely redecorated inside and
out.
The roster of members sub-
scribing to the charter included
many long time residents, all ac-
tive communally. The new syna-
gogue will be known as "Schaa-
rei Zedek" and will be located
at 1545 S. W. 3rd Street. Services
will be conducted daily as soon
as alterations are completed and
will be conducted in the ortho-
dox manner. A Talmud Torah
'and Sunday School are in the
formative stage as is a Ladies'
Auxiliary.
Temporary officers chosen una-
nimously to guide the affairs of
the congregation, until a per-
manent constitution is approved,
are A. Pepper, president; Max
Mintzer. 1st vice president; Mil-
ton Weiner, 2nd vice president;
Max Kupferstein, secretary' and
Phillip Berkowitz, treasurer.
The constitution and by-laws
will be presented to the member-
ship following the close of the
membership drive already inau-
gurated by the new officers.
Services for the High Holy
Days will be held in the new sy-
nagague and the selection of a
Cantor is now under considera-
tion.
London (WNS) Nazi authori-
ties in occupied Poland have de-
cided to exterminate the esti-
mated 600,000 Jews in the War-
saw ghetto, it was reported here
this week by leaders of the Pol-
ish government-in-exile, follow-
ing the reported surprise visit to
Poland of Nazi Gestapo Chief
Heinrich Himmler.
Polish leaders stated that
Himmler's visit to Nazi officials
in Poland resulted in the deci-
sion to destroy the Jewish popu-
lation of the former Polish capi-
tal. Bloody pogroms lasting sev-
eral days in which hundreds of
terror-stricken men, women and
children were murdered broke out
in the Warsaw ghetto soon after
Himmler arrived.
The Nazis plan to conceal their
extermination scheme by an-
nouncing that the Jews will be
transported from the ghetto to
occupied Soviet territories for
forced labor. Gestapo agents have
posted signs throughout the ghet-
to warning the population to be
prepared for deportation to Eas-
tern Europe.
Polish spokesmen disclosed that
"up to now two train-loads of
Jews have departed toward their
doom without anything ;rther
being heard from them." The
, deported Jews, it was said, were
ordered to take with them their
luggage as well as jewelry and
other valuables. The victims were
probably stripped of their valu-
ables before being executed
somewhere outside of Warsaw.

Pieces of Hate

Defamation League of

(CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1)
efforts to create dissension and
hatred. A recent issue of his or-
gan. "Our Common Cause," bears
the subtitle: "ALL THE NEWS
THAT THE JEW-CONTROLLED
PRESS DARE NOT PRINT!" In
a letter to President Roosevelt,
published in this scurrilous sheet,
Smythe stated: "We know that
the doors of the White House are
always open to JEWS, COM-
MUNISTS, PINKS, WIDE-EYED
RADICALS, SO-CALLED LI-
BERALS and OUTCAST PARA-
SITE REFUGEES Since you
have become the Chief Executive
of the Nation, the rights of the
majority (Christians) have be-
come outlawed and the JEW min-
ority the RULING CLASS."
Smythe's tirade indicates the
fervor with which he has em-
braced Nazi racial tenets. He
made futile attempts to awaken
national interest in his so-called
veterans' association and, signi-
ficantly, published this notice:
We are asking all SOCIAL JUS-
TICE DISTRIBUTORS to get in
touch with us relative to the dis-
tribution of "OUR COMMON
CAUSE."

Among those indicted as Nazi
stooges by the government were
Olav E. Tietzow, an agitator with
a long record as an anti-democrat
and anti-Semite. Tietzow's latest
exploit was calculated to arouse
the Negroes of America, profiting
by the dissatisfaction against the
Negro in war industries and in
the armed forces.
Tietzow recently issued an in-
flammatory handbill titled THE
NEGRO MENACE, reading in
part: "Racial equality was IM-
POSED upon America by Lin-
coln some day his name will
be cursed by all whites. The Jew-
ish New Deal continues on the
path of racial destruction by
catering to the colored peoples
in a political and even social
way." Tietzow viciously "de-
manded" the immediate "dis-
armament of and dismissal from
military service of all Negroes"
and "death by hanging for neg-
roes having violated white wo-
men." He ended on a typically
Nazi note: "Fellow whites! Ar-
van Mipremacy must be re-estab-
lished in these United States!"
Another indicted "paper patriot"
is Charles B. Hudson of Omaha,
distributor of a so-called news-
letter "AMERICA IN DANGER"
whose July release offered for
sale a number of books includ-
ing "The Octopus," scurrilous
book which assails the Jews, the
government and the B'nai B'rith,
which the government charges
was written by Hudson in colla-
boration with Mrs. Elizabeth
Billing of Chicago, notorious wo-
man agitator who likewise was
indicted on three counts. The
government charges that the pair
used the name of a non-existent
clergyman, "Rev. Frank Wood-
ruff Johnson," to mask their
identities as the actual authors
of this piece.
a
An anonymous, mimeographed
handout, "The Jew Makes a Sac-

ELECTIONS TO THE ZIONIST
MEET HELD OVER COUNTRY
Washington, D. C.:August 31,
has been set as the deadline for
completing membership enroll-
ment for the purpose of qualify-
ing delegates to the 45th Annual
Convention of the Zionist Organi-
zation of America, which will
convene in four-day session from
October 14th through October
18th in the Hotel New Yorker
New York City, the national
headquarters of the organization
announced here today.
Calling upon the officers of all
Zionist Districts and Regions to
utilize the month of August for
an intensified membership acti-
vity, Mr. Simon Shetzer, execu-
tive director of the Z. O. A., de-
clared that all indications point
to the Z. O. A. coming to the
Convention with the largest
membership on record.
It is announced that some of
the convention sessions will be
held jointly with Hadassah, which
will be meeting at the same time
at the Pennsylvania Hotel in
New York City. The main pro-
ceedings, which will deal with
vital problems affecting the post-
war status of Palestine and the
future of the Zionist movement
in this country, will be presided
over by Judge Louis E. Levin-
thai, president of the Z. O. A.
for bloody Joe (Stalin) and the
British (Jewish) empire." This
anonymous piece of scurrility, in
common with the material issued
by those now indicted, seeks to
arouse, racial and religious ani-
mosities which would be reflected
in a lower morale of civilians on
the home front. Democracy is
vilified, and the sheet continues:
"As he (the Jew) lays concealed
or slithers around within 'demo-
cracy' part of his technique is to
stress the need for tolerance;
particularly so ifas in Germany
he is caught at his unclean
work." Could anything be more
calculated to lend encourage-
ment to Hitler and Co., and es-
pecially to that small but men-
acing fringe of Americans who
are contemptuous of democracy,
who might not even be averse
to pogroms in the U. S. A. if they
could force an Axis-dominated
peace and bring about an end to
the American democratic system?
Of such stuff is propaganda of
the cruder sort made. The mouth-
ings and writings of virtually all
of those persons now indicted
equal this for scurrility and ven-
om. Quite apart from their anti-
Jewish content, this poisoned
matter is a direct blow at the
morale of our armed forces and,
as such, renders its creators sub-
ject to appropriate penalties.
PELLEY TO
Indianapolis (WNS) William
Dudley Pelley, professional anti-
Semite and pro-Nazi even after
Pearl Harbor, was accused of ad-
hering to the Axis propaganda
line after America's entry into
the war, as the Government
closed its case against the Fasc-
ist Silver Shirt leader who, with
two associates, is being tried on
sedition charges.
"NATIVE FASCISTS ARE THIS
COUNTRY'S WORST ENEMY"
Pelley was convicted and de-
clared guilty on 11 counts of
sedition and conspiracy by a
Federal Court jury Wednesday
night.
While Government witnesses
showed that Pelley's statements
and articles appearing in his
magazine. The Galilean, were al-
most word for word reproductions
of Nazi and Japanese propagan-
da, Pelley announced that he
would call as witnesses Charles
A. Lindbergh, pre-war isolation-
ist and America First Committee
spokesman, and Maj. Gen. Geo.
Van Horn Moseley. U. S. Army,
retired, who once aspired to be
America's first Fascist dictator.

New York (WNS)Dr. Chaim
Weizmann, president of the Jew-
ish Acency for Palestine and of
the WZO. who came to the res-
cue of Great Britain in World
War I by discovering a method
to make synthetic acetone, needed
in the manufacture of explosives,
may now solve one of America's
knottiest war problemsthe rub-
ber shortage.
Declaring that earlier reports
that President Roosevelt had
Chief Justice Harlan F. Stone
of the United States Supreme
Court make an investigation
and give the nation the facts on
the rubber situation were without
foundation, Time Magazine said:
"But Washington insiders were
aware of another figure; bald,
bearded Dr. Weizmann of Lon-
don and Palestine, noted chem-
ist, noted Zionist. Dr. Weizmann
had a date in Washington to con-
fer with Presidential Advisor
Judge Samuel I. Rosenman. Re-
ports were that Dr. Weizmann.
who did not claim to know all
the facts about synthetic rubber,
nevertheless knew more of them
than any other one man, per-
haps could set the record straight.
"In World War I. Dr. Weiz-
mann's skill got Britain out of a
worse jam than the U. S. rubber
shortage. Britain was desperate
for acetone, needed to make ex-
plosives. It had to be distilled
from wood, and there were hard-
ly enough trees in the world to
supply the demand. Dr. Weiz-
mann found a way to make syn-
thetic acetone, solved the short-
age overnight, in return won the
British promise of a homeland
for Jews in Palestine."
New York (WNS)Following
the round-up of the 28 pro-Nazis
and anti-Semites charged with
conspiring to impair the morale
of the country's armed forces,
Carey Longmire, radio commen-
tator, warned this week that nat-
ive Fascists "are the worst ene-
mies this country has."
"They hate President Roose-
vent," Mr. Longmire said. "Many
say he started the war by 'threat-
ening' Hitler and Hirohito. They
hate Jews, negroes, labor unions
and a lot of other things. They
claim they hate Hitler, too, but
they're working for him even if
they may not know it.
"Suppose Hitler smashes on to
victory over Russia. He can or-
ganize all Europe to work for
him. The war might be in a sort
of stalemate for years. What
would our home-grown Fascists
be doing then? Just the same as
the French Fascists did. They'd
start saying: "Why not make a
deal with Hitler? He'd propably
let us alone.'
That's exactly the kind of talk
Hitler wants to hear. He'd make
any promise to get peace. Then
he'd try to get thousands of Nazi
agents working inside America,
and when he felt the time was
ripe, he'd stab us in the back so
quickly we might not be able to
strike back."

Geneva (WNS)Further evi-
dence that the Nazi authorities
are going ahead with their
scheme to wipe out the Jewish
population of Poland, as a fore-
runner to the destruction of all
European Jewry, was received
this week in the form of reports
of the slaughter of 26.000 Polish
Jews outside of the Lublin ghetto.
The massacre of these 26.000
Jewish men, women and children
brought to 110.000 the number of
Polish Jews murdered by the Na-
zis in the last two months. (Con-
servative estimates have placed
the number of Polish Jews mur-
dered since the Nazi invasion of
Poland in September, 1939, at
700.00.)
The massacre of the 26.000
Lublin Jews was reported to have
followed the visit of Gestapo
Chief Heinrich Himmlcr to War-
saw for coasultation with Nazi
officials there. Himmler reported-
ly informed the German authori-
ties in Poland of the future Nazi
course of action with regard to
the Jews.
Nazi executions of Jews have
taken place recently in other
Polish cities and in Russian cities
now occupied by the Germans.
Nazi firing squads executed 47
Jews in the city of Radom. Sev-
eral hundred German Jews, who
were sent to Minsk as compulsory
laborers several months ago, were
reported to have been wiped out.
Washington:Three rabbis es-

through their service as directors
of B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundations
this week placed that experience
at the disposal of the armed
forces of the United States when
they resigned as Hillel directors
to become Army and Navy chap-
lains.
The three B'nai B'rith Hillel
directors who have become chap-
lains are: Rabbi Bertram Klaus-
ner of the Hillel Foundation at
the University of Alabama; Rabbi
Samuel Sandmel of the Hillel
Foundation at the University of
North Carolina; and Rabbi Max
Eichorn of the Hillel Foundation
at Florida College for Women.
Rabbi Klausner is stationed at
Camp Forrest, Tenn. Rabbi Sand-
mel has been assigned to the U.
S. Naval Station at Norfolk, Va.
Rabbi Eichorn is serving at a new
army post at Bartonsburg. S. C.
Rabbi Morris Kertzer, director
of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tion at the University of Iowa,
is spending his summer as a
volunteer chaplain for the Jewish
Welfare Board at Fort Riley,
Kansas. Three other Hillel direc-
tors have applied for chaplain-
cies.
Louis Heiman, chairman of the
B'nai B'rith State Student's Un-
ion Committee announces that
Rabbi Amram Prero will fill the
vacancy at the University of Flor-
ida for the Gainesville district,
and Rabbi Ernst Lorge will ful-
fill a similar service at the Flor-
ida State College for Women, at
Tallahassee.
Rabbi Prero served as Rabbi
for two years at Rochester, Min-
nesota, ministering to the needs
of the local community and the
patients at the Mayo Clinic. For
the last two years he answered
the call of the Jewish commun-
ity at Lexington, Ky.
Rabbi Lorge is a refugee from
Germany, coming to the United
States in 1935.

JEWRY HURRIES
TRAINING AS RED
CRISIS INCREASES
Kuibyshev (WNS)With the
Nazi menace to the rich Caucasus
growing daily, thousands of Jews
in the Jewish autonomous pro-
vince of Biro-Bidjan and in other
Siberian regions of Soviet Rus-
sia have intensified their mili-
tary training programs to pro-
vide new reserves for the em-
battled Soviet Armies, it was re-
ported here this week.
Meetings of Jewish workers in
Biro-Bidjan and in other areas
resulted in decisions to increase
production and to send more
food and military supplies to
the front lines. In addition, Jew-
ish workers in Biro-Bidjan have
voted to take military training at
the end of each working day.
The Jewish workers gather at
special training fields after they
have completed their day's work
and are drilled in the tactics of
defensive and offensive warfare
by veteran Red Army officers.
The Jews are preparing for any
eventuality, although their be-
lief in the ability of the Soviet
Army to stem the Nazi tide is as
strong as ever.

Getting Into the Scrap
The progagandists for Nazi
Germany, having exhausted the
stock of lies about the terrific
profits made by rubber dealers,
now are trying to apply the same
techniques to the steel scrap cam-
paign ... It is being whispered
around town that the '"Jewish-
owned junk yards" are going to
make a fortune from the collec-
tion of steel scrap Fortunat-
ely, the Dade County Defense
Council has been on its toes .
It has emphasized that although
it cannot handle the scrap direct-
ly, the government has "pegged"
the prices so that no dealer could I
reap exorbitant profits, even if!
he were so minded.
The B'nai B'rith Lodge, co-
operating in the current cam-
paign, has set up a salvage com- j
mittee under the chairmanship I
of Louis Heiman ... At the end i
of the first two weeks this com-!
mittee had already assembled
100,00 pounds of scrap.
When we say the "committee."' j
we really mean Louis Heiman
. We pay tribute here to the
enthusiasm with which he has'
tackled this patriotic job ... It
is typical of the man that he'
practically has laid aside his law j
business and is devoting himself
to stimulating scrap collection
through the B'nai B"rith.
We could use more communal
workers like Lou and less of some
others who have sought positions
of trust in B'nai B'rith and else-
where in the Jewish community
for personal aggrondizement.
O Tempora, O Mores
The spectacle of a Jew on trial,
charged with the bribery of army
officials, is deplorable enough .
But the sight of a past president
of B'nai B'rith. former chairman
of its anti-Defamation committee.
I etc. coming to his legal defense,
j makes one wonder on what basis
I people attain positions of trust in
| the Jewish community More-
! over, the fact that this defense is
I undertaken on the ground that
|'" it will serve the best interests
of the Jewish community," causes
j one to remark. "O Tempora, O
i mores!"
Oh we know that there are
j those Jewish lawyers who will
! tell you that the business of an
attorney is to defend clients .
' Of course, a man is entitled to
I counsel There's no argument
on that score But from the
public relations point of view,
we maintain it's bad business for
any Jewish lawyer, particularly
a "leader." to be going to bat for
another Jew accused of an act
that, whether we wish it or not.
tends to impugn the patriotism
of Jews generally For. unfor-
tunately, we cannot escape the
responsibility thrust upon us by
the outside world for being our
brothers" keepers There is,
we imagine, more than an ample
supply of non-Jewish attorneys
available in Greater Miami .
Why. then, must it be the B'nai
B'rith president who injects him-
self into the situation?
There are Jewish communities
in which incidents of this kind
could not happen Why? Simp-
ly because in communities with
an older, stable Jewish popula-
tion, a B'nai B'rith president
would be ashamed to court the
disfavor of certain of his fellow-
Jews But. perhaps, it is ex-
pecting too much that in Miami,
a new area of settlement with a .
hetrogenous Jewish population. ,
even a B'nai B'rith president
should be too much concerned!
about the welfare of the com-
munity as a whole Conceiv-
ably the time will come, after Mi-

itself, when communal ""leaders"
will be guided less by material
considerations and more by what
is good for the Jewish group as a
whole.

WEEKLY GIGGLE
From Picture Scoop, the new
illustrated monthly, we bring
you this tale, credited to comed-
ian Danny Kaye ... A German,
it seems, had a terrible tooth-
ache, and decided to have the
bothersome molar removed .
So he went to one of Berlin's
foremost dentists, who examined
his mouth, took J^-rays of the
tooth, went into consultation with
an assistant and then finally said
to the patient: "We can extract
that tooth, but it will cost you
ten thousand dollars, American
money" The sufferer couldn't
believe he had heard correctly
. "Ten thousand dollars!" he
cried "Ten thousand dollars
to pull one tooth? I never heard
of such a thing!" The dentist
shrugged, and pointed out: "My
dear sir, you forget that we'll
have to extract that tooth through
your ear" "Through my ear!"
the patient exclaimed, now con-
vinced that he had strayed into
the psychopathic ward "Why
can't you pull it through my
mouth?" "This is Germany,"
the dentist replied stiffly .
"Nobody is allowed to open his
mouth here" All of which re-
minds us of the story of Maxie
Rosenbloom. the actor-boxer,
tells of three men sitting on a
park bench in Germany One
was reading the afternoon paper,
and kept saying "Ts-ts-ts" to
himself The second man, his
curiosity aroused, craned his neck
to read the story, and pretty soon
he too was saying "Ts-ts-ts" .
So the third man got up to leave,
saying: "If you two are going to
discuss the war. I can't stay
here."
