MEYER LEVIN. JEWISH HERO.
SINKS ANOTHER JAP SHIP
SMITH IN U. S.
New York (WNS)Lewis Val-
entine Ulrey, chairman of the
Christian American, an anti-la-
bor and anti-union organization,
has been disseminating vicious
anti-Jewish propaganda, it was
disclosed here by the New York
The newspaper charged that
six months after Pearl Harbor
the labor baiter was still follow-
ing the Axis line. In a letter
sent to an associate in his or-
ganization, Ulrey stated: "Per-
sonally, I believe that we have
come to Armageddonthe great
.struggle between Christianity
and Jewish Marxism."
Repeating the Nazi lie that the
Jews organized the Russian Revo-
lution and later created the New
Deal, Ulrey wrote:
"The Talmudists were so suc-
cessful in Russia, and by 1935
they had such open success with
the New Deal in the United States
that they decided to openly re-
store tlie Sanhedrin, which they
did by selecting, naming and lab-
cling "120 outstanding Jews.'
These are the modern Jewish
Sanhedrin members or "Elders
of Zion.' Rabbi Wise in New
York is one; Felix Frankfurter
Ulrey's correspondence fell in-
to the hands of a Louisiana cler-
gyman, who was so offended by
its contents that he submitted it
to PM for public exposure.
REFUSE TO ARREST JEWS;
FRENCH POLICE ARE FIRED
London (WNS)Nazi occupa-
tion authorities in occupied
France have suspended many
French police officers in Paris
for refusing to arrest Jews for
deportation to Eastern Europe, it
was reported here this week by
the British Broadcasting Co.
Reporting the mass round-up of
Jews in Paris, the London radio
said: "The first arrests were
mostly made by the French po-
lice, who did not take long in ex-
pressing their disgust for this
task. The people of France did
not hesitate to express their in-
dignation at seeing Frenchmen
do such work on orders from the
"Numerous policemen were
suspended on orders from the
Germans and their identity cards
were stamped "Jewish Sympath-
"The Germans told the arrested
Jews that the men would be sent
to Bessarabia and the women
would go to labor camps and
that the children would be locked
UP in houses of correction. De-
spite the threats of the Gestapo, a
Td 8riat nurnDer of the people
of Paris, who are not Israelites,
aided the Jews to hide."
New York (WNS)Sergeant
Meyer Levin, the Jewish bombar-
dier, who flew in the bomber
commanded by Captain Colin
Kelly and dropped the bombs
that sank the Japanese battleship
Haruna, was back in the news
this week following receipt of re-
port from "somewhere in the
Southwest Pacific" that the
Brooklyn Jewish hero had sent
another big Japanese ship to the
bottom in the Coral Sea battle.
The 25-year-old Jewish bom-
bardier, a corporal at the time he
bombed the Haruna, described
his second exploit to a United
Press reporter: "I got one big
ship in the Coral Sea battle, or
at least I got a beautiful hit,
though I suppose I'll never know
whether she sank or not."
ENDS ITS FOURTH
PURGE OF 60,
Istanbul (WNS)The purge of
60.000 members of the Fascist
party in Italy was ordered by
Premier Mussolini on the ground
that the dismissed functionaries
constituted a pro-Jewish "bloc"
which sabotaged anti-Jewish leg-
islation, according to reports re-
Despite repeated warnings bv
the Fascist party, it was reported,
thousands of minor officials and
party members continued theii
friendships with Jews and failed
to report their Jewish neighbors
and friends for alleged violation
of the harsh anti-Jewish laws
which were introduced in Italy
by II Duce at the instance of sen-
ior partner Hitler.
The purge came shortly after
Roberto Farinacci, high Fascist
official, demanded that the party
be cleansed of all pro-Jewish ele-
ments. Farinacci expressed dis-
satisfaction with the progress of
the anti-Jewish campaign and
warned that drastic steps would
be taken against "Jewish sympa-
thizers." Many of the purged
party members were married to
Jewish women whom they re-
fused to divorce, the report said.

TO ESTABLISH NEW GHETTO
Istanbul (WNS)More than 8.-
000 Greek Jews, including many
of the leaders of the Salonika
Jewish community, have been
rounded up secretly by Nazi of-
ficials and transported to the
hills of Macedonia where a large
ghetto will be established for all
Greek Jews, according to official
Greek circles here.
The round-up of the 8.000 Sa-
lonika Jews was unexpected and
' conducted amidst the greatest se-
; crecy. presumably to avoid pro-

will be distributed among the
Italians in Egypt immediately af-
er Field Marshal Rommel's Axis
armies drive the British out. the
Rome radio stated this week in a
broadcast directed to the Italian |
population of Egypt.
The Fascist radio warned Ital-
ians in Egypt not to buy homes
or furniture from the Jews since
all Jewish property in Egypt will

NAZIS IN CAMPS
Washington (WNS)The sep-
aration of Jews and Nazis in
United States internment camps
was urged by interested Jewish
organizations here following he-
ports of fist fights and other dis-
turbances between the Nazis and
Jews, ;t was disclosed here.
It is estimated that there are
about 50 Jews interned in various
camps throughout the United
States. The Jews were sent to
internment camps in this country
from Latin American countries
when the Western Hemisphere
became involved in the war. De-
spite the fact that the Jewish in-
ternees are outspokenly anti.
Nazi they are held in the same
camps as German nationals.
As a result of attacks by Nazi
nationals on Jewish internees in
Camp Blanding. Florida, the Jews
were transferred to another camp
in Texas where they sleep in sep-
arate quarters but must mingle
with the Nazis during the day.
Friction was reported also at a
women's camp in Sigeville, Tex-
as, where Nazis refuse to serve
Jews at the canteen, and vice
A Nazi sailor interned in a
camp at Fort Lincoln. N. D.. was
sentenced to serve 30 days in the
guard house for slapping a Jew-
ish refugee. Disturbances be-
tween Jews and Nazis have also
been reported in other camps.
Meanwhile, a report from Ellis
Island in New York stated that
Nazi internees there held a secret
meeting last week to mourn the
six Nazi saboteurs who were exe-
cuted. During the memorial
meeting, the Nazis ordered all
internees, including Jews whe
are awaiting entry into the Unit-
ed States, to stand at attention.
New York (WNS)Declaring
that Field Marshal Rommel's
Axis armies are "poised to strike
now against inferior democratic
forces in the Middle East." the
Committee for a Jewish Army
this week appealed for public
support to "compel one step that
may quickly turn defeat into vic-
tory" the creation of a Jewish
Army in the Middle East. The
appeal was made in the form of a
:'ull page advertisement in the
Referring to the announced for-
mation of a Palestine Regiment,
composed of separate Arab and
Jewish infantry battalions, the

dle East, our gallant ally Great
Britain has begun to acknowledge
what should be done: But she
has not yet gone far enough to do
"In Palestine, and the Near
East alone, there are 100,000 able
bodied Jews apart from another
100.000 stateless, expatriated vic-
tims of Hitler's merciless march
against humanity." the advertise-
ment added. "Among them are
thousands of trained officers and
fighters from the vanquished de-
mocracies, and from Germany
itself. Their souls are filled with
one desire their strong young
bodies dedicated to one purpose
. to strike back at Hitler with
all the force and fury of which
outraged mankind is capable."

most popular projects in the
camp. Twenty-five campers took
this subject and made very fine
progress under the able direction
of Louis Gadon.
The interest of the children
was always uppermost in the
minds of Mr. Grossman and his
able staff. Anything that would
j please the children was given to
them. For example, every Wed-
| nesday afternoon pony rides were
provided for the children. Four
live ponies were brought here
and the children had loads and
loads of fun.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY. AUGUST 21. 1942
The campaign to ship under the auspices
of the American Red Cross food and medical
supplies to the starving Jews in the Polish
ghettos received new impetus this week with
the announcement from Jerusalem that a con-
crete proposal for "mercy" shipments to Pol-
ish Jewry had been transmitted to the State
Department in Washington. Earlier, the State
Department has assured the Representation of
Polish Jews in Palestine that the American
Government would give "sympathetic con-
sideration" to any procedure which would ben-
efit the civilian populations of the occupied
countries without aiding the Axis economy.
As each week goes by it becomes increas-
ingly apparent that unless immediate action
is taken by the United Nations to feed the
Jewish population of Poland the hundreds of
thousands of Jews trapped behind ghetto walls
will be wiped out by starvation. Conserva-
tive estimates indicate that the pre-war Jew-
ish population of Poland has already been
reduced by one-third. The Jewish death rate
in that bleeding and oppressed country is
climbing steadily. Unless action is taken
now, it may soon be too late. There is a limit
to human endurance and stamina.
In the past the oppressed peoples of the
world have always looked to Washington for
help and ecouragement. The Atlantic Char-
ter, as proclaimed by President Roosevelt and
Prime Minister Churchill, promise the suffer-
ing peoples of occupied Europe a new and
happier worlda world freed of suffering,
want and persecution. Our present task is to
keep these peoples alive so that they can en-
joy the privileges of the world of tomorrow.
The entire world applauded when Britain al-
lowed "mercy" shipments to the people of
Greece. It will applaud when "mercy" ship-
ments are sent to the broken and bleeding
Jews of Poland. These shipments will symbol-
ize the spirit of the world of tomorrow.
"As members of churches and synagogues
we have Catholic, Protestant and Jewish work
to do. But we also have a task of transcendent
importance to do together. It is to arouse all
Americans to their religious duty to win, not
only the war, but also the peace. Above all
else, we have a united world to crusade for,
to organize for, to bring to pass."Declaration
of representatives of three faiths at the Univer-
sity of Virginia's Institute of Public Affairs.
WE CANNOT LIVE ALONE
"Neither men nor nations can live alone.
As men and as nations we must learn to live,
work and cooperate with our fellow men and
our fellow nations. To live in peace and free-
dom in the modern world requires that we
shall not live in isolation. To cooperate in the
modern world implies that nations shall work
together as friends and good neighbors.
"We have a responsibility to the world and
to ourselves not only to destroy these tyran-
nies that now threaten our lives, but to help
bring about that cooperation among nations
necessary to give the peoples of all nations
the right to work and the right to attain those
living standards and those elements of secur-
ity and freedom to which they are justly en-
titled."Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black.
SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY
"It is folly to crusade against the dictator
while we are careless or indifferent to the
spirit of democracy. We will never fight the
fires of religious persecution by the spirit that
remains unmoved by the fires of the altars of
religion."Rev. Stephen James, pastor of the
First Reformed Church of Albany.
The Polish Govemment-in-Exile in London
has made public some letters which it re-
ceived through the International Red Cross.
One young Jewish boy writes
"Our entire family had died from want of
food and from spotted fever. I also had spot-
ted fever but I am well now. I live only to
suffer a little longer and struggle for life. How

The stories of the immense slaughters by
the Nazis, of the machine-gunning of thou-

have reached such giant proportions that be-
cause of their enormity we cannot grasp them
and we nod our heads in sadness when they
are mentioned and go on as usual. We can-
not visualize such sadistic and wholesale
cruelty. But this little child who tells without
rhetoric the sad story of his desperation grips
us. We understand fully when he says: "How

We know that as his innocent lips framed
this sentence, there were no tears in his eyes.

himself were being thought in the minds of
thousands of other Jewish children.

ATTACK ON ALL FRONTS
"We are confronting an attack upon the New
World, which is being waged by the Axis pow-
ers on every front upon which they can muster
their forces of treachery and deceit. This war
is not being fought, today, on a military front
alone. We, the free nations of America, are
today faced with the supreme and historic mis-
sion of repelling a total assault on our freedom
and integrity, an assault that is being carried
on, not only by pirate submarines and military
arms, but also by the colonies of subversive
agents on the sovereign soil of each one of our
"These human termites, carrying out the
will of their Axis masters, have been gnawing
for a long time, not only at the foundations of
our inter-American system, but also at the
foundation of the economic structure that main-
tains us whole. It is for the purpose of com-
pleting and integrating controls that have al-
ready been established to thwart and to stamp
out their activities that this meeting of techni-
cal experts from our twenty-one American re-
publics is convened in Washington today."
Sumner Welles, Under-Secretary of State.
FREEDOM VS. SLAVERY
"It is that, a war between the idea of free-
dom and the idea of scientific slavery, between
the dream of happiness and the nightmare of
despotism. But it is more than that. It is a war
for the preservation of humanity, for a defeat
of the United Nations would mean a world of
terror and tragedy. It would mean an insane
world where a few men at the top of the heap
would live out their hysterical lives trampling
the millions under their heels. It would mean
fear and want for the many and degeneracy
and power for the few. That is what it would
be like if the Axis won.
"The Axis will not win. Twenty-eight peo-
ples on every continent have signed the sol-
emn agreement with their blood, pledging to
fight on until freedom and sanity return to a
tired earth."Owen J. Roberts, Supreme Court
MINE IS THE VENGEANCE
With the trickle of refugees from Europe practically dried
up, the grapevine isn't working as well as in former days
Recently, however, we heard a story we thought you'd like
to have passed on to you ... It concerns an incident in a
little cellar room in the Warsaw gretto which a group of
pious Jews used as their synagogue ... In it they had stored
a Torah scroll saved from better days, and the sacred writ-
ing was guarded day and night by one or another stalwart
young man of the group Came the day when a Nan
storm trooper, out for a good time, invaded the place of wor-
ship, knocked down the guard, seized the scroll and started
tearing it to bits "That's what I think of your Jewish God,"
he taunted "See, He can't even do anything to me : :
Don't you think He'd strike me dead if he could?" Pain-
fully the young Jew got to his feet ... "I don't know,' he re-
plied, "but I will' And with that he leaped at the Nazi-
and killed him with a single blow.
Now that Bernard M. Baruch is taking over the task of
finding a solution for our rubber problem, we may expect to
have plenty of rubber before long for our war machine and
industry ... But don't think that this means you'll have all
the tires you want for pleasure driving That activity will
in any event have to be curtailed for the duration Baruch,
it is said, has become a great booster of the Jewish Army pro-
ject Guess who's touring the borsht circuit this summer,
lecturing at the Eastern mountain resorts? It's none other
than Mrs. Hitler, and she's being listened to with great in-
terest But don't be alarmedshe's only the wife of Adolf's
nephew, Patrick Hitler, whose mother is Irish and who doesn't
like his fuehrious uncle either.
Sophie Tucker, whose "Life of a Red Hot Mama" is soon
to appear as a magazine serial, recently cancelled a S15.000
night club engagement to entertain gratis at army camps ...
Aben Kandel, whose "Rabbi Burns" created a sensation in
Jewish circles a decade ago, and who since has been busy
in Hollywood producing such successful scripts as "City for
Conquest," is preparing a collection of short stories about
the film capital, to be called "This Side of Glamor" Mau-
rice Zolotow, whose pieces on Broadway celebrities have
been appearing in the Saturday Evening Post, has prepared
a history of Manhattan's night clubs for the American Mer-
cury ... If you think radio dramas are made to be heard
rather than read, take a gander at Ellery Queen's "Adven-
ture of the Mark of Cain," included in the Pocket Mystery
Reader, and you'll see it's just a spine-chilling in print as on
the air ... In this volume, too, is a poem by Bret Harte, deal-
ing not with mystery but with sudden death, which is the
essence of most whodunits anyway "What the Bullet
Sang" is the name of the poem.

The Beautiful Captive
Dr. Samuel Bension will speak
at the military services on Sun-
day, August 23rd at 9 a. m. on
the subject of "The Beautiful
Captive" At last Sunday's mili-
tary services the synagogue was
filled to capacity. The Center
feels gratified at this splendid
response on the part of the men
in the service to our cordial in-
vitation and promises to maintain
the same high standard which
makes these services so appealing
and attractive. Community sing.(
ing and Dr. Bension's inspiring
messages are a regular feature
of the Center's military services.
Civilians, too, are welcome.
On Saturday, August 15th at
10 a. m. Dr. Bension will speak
on "Going Out to War" and at
the Oneg Shabbat at 6:30 p. m.
his topic will be "Man is a Tree."
Abundant refreshments are
served at the Oneg Shabbat so-
cial and a fine program is pre-
sented with Miss Ruth Brotman,
noted soprano, participating. Ser-
vice men and civilians are cor-
dially invited to attend.
Despite insinuations and mis-
leading criticism the Miami Beach I
Jewish Center publicly announces j
that it has made provision to ac-1
commodate 200 Jewish service'
men at High Holy Day Services. I
The men in uniform will not be
relegated to a basement or gal- j
lery but will have the first call on
our best seats as our distinguished
guests of honor. The Center, I
however, is not merely a syn- j
agogue but a community institu-
tion, and looks to the general;
public for support in the splen-
did service it renders.
We appeal to the entire Jew-
ish community to help support I
the Center both in maintaining
and developing the activities for |
the benefit of the men in uniform :
and the community as a whole.
Perhaps it is due to the beau-1
tiful decorations, the awe-inspir- ]
ing Ark, the comfortable pews, or .
an aroused religious conscious-
ness, but it is simply amazing to
see the early rush for seats at
the Center. The demand is al-
ready so great that the Center
feels it will be compelled to con-
duct overflow services in its spa-
cious open air patio. This will
require an awning enclosure and |
lighting equipment at an expense
of many hundreds of dollars.
Since the Center is the responsi-
bility and pride of the entire
community we invite the public
at large to make seat reserva-
tions at once to give us ample
time to make the necessary ex-
tensive additions. Only a few
choice seats are still available in
the Center synagogue itself, and
shall be allotted fairly and im-
partially in the order applications
are received. Dr. Samuel Ben-
sion will give his illuminating
explanations of the outstanding
Parts of the High Holy Days' lit-
urgy and his inspiring sermons

Hays of Miami Beach are the
originators of an idea whereby

chants" traveling salesmen from
offering their wares to at least a
limited number of their Florida
Unlike their fellow salesmen in
other sections of the country who
are holding protest meetings and
attempting to obtain extra gas.
the Miamians have banded to-
gether under the designation of
Southeastern Caravan, to "ride
the circuit" of five key Florida
cities to exhibit their wares in
the fashion of the old itinerant
vendors going from one county
fair or public market place to
Retail merchants within a 100-
mile radius of their five key
stopping off places already have
been circularized to acquaint
them when the Caravan will be
jn there. The merchants may
then travel to the center nearest
their home and place their orders
for new stocks.
Purposely, only 25 salesmen
are members of this closed cor-
poration. Among the reasons for i
this is that hotels cannot accom- '
modate a larger group, and trav-
eling and hauling facilities are
limited. Train accommodations
could not be made for the Cara-
van's first safari, which will leave
Miami by bus.
The Caravan will be at the
Floridan Hotel. Sunday and Mon-
day. August 23 and 24. They will
be in Orlando August 27 and 28.
Jacksonville August 30 and 31.
and in Tallahassee September 2
The Caravan is not competitive
and has as its object the idea of
giving merchants the opportun-
ity to get the standard lines they
have been using for years.
"Not only is it useless for us to
attempt to fight gasoline ration-
ing, but we feel that it's our pa
triotic duty to do what we can to
get along without special consid-
eration," Roth said. "Of course,
we would like to have enough
gas to continue making our live-
lihood." he added, "but this is a

IN POLAND FID
HUH SAY LEADERS
London (WNS)Expressing de-
termination of the Polish Gov-
ernment-in-exile to support the
Jews in their efforts to secure a
Jewish state in Palestine, Polish
Premier Sikorski emphasized this
week that Jews in the post-war
Poland will be free either to re-
main in Poland or to emigrate
The Polish premier gave this
pledge in behalf of the emigre
Polish government in a message
to the New Zionist Organization
of Great Britain. The statement
was construed as a slap at the
extreme Polish nationalists who
demand the compulsory emigra-
tion of Jews to Palestine after
"Our sympathies are with the
Jews longing for a National
Homea State of their own in
Palestine." General Sikorski's
statement said. "Both from a
moral and political viewpoint,
this problem is very simple to
us. and we hesitate to repeat
how strongly the Polish nation
and the government favor these
Jewish aims, especially since
such longing is expressed by our
own Polish citizens of Jewish na-
"The problem of Jewish emi-
gration from Poland must be en-
visaged by Poles as the right of
Jews to leave Poland for the na-
tional home but never as duty on
the part of the Jews to do so. Nor
should that be taken as intention
on the part of the Poles to exert
pressure in that direction.
"We do not intend to influence
internal Jewish matters and po-
litical differences, whether great
or small. On the other hand, we
are ready both now and in the
future to support the Jewish na-
tional aims in case the Jews
themselves endeavor to attain
them and to the degree the Jews
themselves ask for such support."

It seems that I just sat down
to write last week's column and
here another is due. It is a good
thing the Lodge is active so as to
enable me to find something to
tell you about.
A new project has been started
in Dade County whereby a per-
manent memorial will be erect-
ed in Bay Front Park honoring
all men who entered the armed
service of the United States
from Dade County. This memor-
ial would be an inspiration to
the boys who are leaving, be-
cause they would know that they
are not being forgotten and that
the folks in Dade County re-
member them. Local civic or-
ganizations were invited to at-
tend the first few meetings. Your
correspondent, who represented
the Lodge at these meetings, is
happy to report that Sholem
Lodge of B'nai B'rith was the on-
ly Jewish organization asked to
attend. Evidently the public has
become acquainted with the
splendid civic work of our Lodge.
At our last meeting Brother
Maurice Cromer reported on the
Labor Day week-end convention
that will be held in Miami for all
of A. Z. A. Chapters throughout
the State. The theme of this con-
vention will .be "War Service."
WOULD YOU GIVE
It is expected that quite a num-
ber of boys and girls will come
down to participate. There will
be oratory and debating and bas-
ketball gamcs to all of which the
public will be invited guests. In
connection with the convention
the boys are going to a lot of ex-
pense and it is, therefore, neces-
sary for them to raise funds to
defray expenses. It was gratify-
ing to note the reaction within
the Lodge. Brothers Eisenstein,
Levin and Cromer practically con-
ducted an auction in getting the
Lodge to raise their offer in pur-
chasing advertising space in the
booklet the boys are putting out
for the convention. These boys
deserve the cooperation of all
men and it is sincerely hoped
that the example and approval of
the Lodge in giving a donation
will make it possible for the boys
to secure aid from all of the bus-
iness men in Dade County.
The scrap drive is still pro-
gressing. To date 117,000 pounds

FRIDAY, AUGUST 21. ig42
Thr viows expressed by Mr. Boxpr-
m.an are his own and do not nec-
essarily represent the opinion of
Th.' Jewish Florldlan.
It's a long story that has no
ending After tolerating their
seditious activities for many
years, the federal government has
indicted some 28 characters on
a charge of obstructing the war
effort Among those in the
dragnet is William Dudley Policy,
the Silver Shirtcr who hoped to
be the fuehrer of America.
The ADL time and again has
stressed the close relationship be-
tween anti-Semitism and the as-
sault upon democracy ... In
indicting these subversionists and
in convicting Pellcy. who faces a
long penitentiary sentence, the
position of the ADL has been
vindicated The proceedings
at the trial, in which Pelley iden-
tified Communism and Judaism
as being synonymous and in the
next breath attacked the pres-
ent administration, provided am-
ple proof of the close kinship be-
tween Jew-hatred and the dis-
like for democratic institutions.
Pelley was no stranger in his
Florida influence, having mailed
numerous leaflets here Even
while held for trial on a prior
charge and while he faced indict-
ment for seditious activity, a
large number of people in Or-
lando. Florida, were receiving
through the mails leaflets which
read, in part:
"Indiana Klansmen have al-
ready begun to ask why the ad-
ministration jumps on Pelley, a
Republican and Protestant .
Pelley. without the powerful
Catholic church behind him is to
be made the Whipping Boy for
the entire Roosevelt criticism
whether uttered by him or any
' other Protestants, to the apparent
lend and aim that other Protcst-
j ant publishers take note of what
happened in Pelley's case and not
show themselves too obstreperous
in jumping on Hon. Hyde Parker
I with spiked literary boots .
I This is the Champion Fight .
I If we can win it, we're going to
I have the whole Yiddish New
' Deal crowd on the run."
Well, the goatecd would-be
fuehrer, who once claimed that
he died and came to life again,
no doubt will have a long time
in which to think it over within
the confines of an institution .
Of course he's not satisfied with
the findings of the jury and is
appealing the verdict But we
are quite certain that, in view of
the damnable evidence, no higher
court will feel charitably inclined
We trust that others on the fifth
column list, who also have been
indicted, will be dealt with in
accordance with their just des-
serts There is Mrs. "Lizzie"
Dilling. author of the Octopus,
than which no viler anti-Semitic
volume was ever issued Mrs.
Dilling's visits a few short years
ago in some of Miami's "best
houses" are a matter of record.
There is also Rev. Gerold B.
Winrod, a friend of Rev. W. T.
Watson of St. Petersburg, in
whose gospel tabernacle he often
j has appeared.
Add to them Joseph Kamp and
his Constitutional Education
League, whose publications have
been widely circulated in Florida,
particularly in a certain concern
whose head is in the service of
the United States Three of
Kamp's publications have been
mailed l<> Miami, one attacking
' the President and members of
| his cabinet as being Jews ... A
second termed as "America's fifth
' column" Frances Perkins. Sidney
Hillman and others of like stat-
ure Kamp's leaflets even had
been placed in a local library
over the objection of citizens who
challenged the truth of their con-
These and others must meet
I the same fate as Pelley if our
j domestic institutions are to be
preserved. Otherwise, the sacri-
fices of our boys in World War
II will have been for naught.
