By JOSEPH A. BERMAN (
Member of the Board
The first effort in the defense
program of the Y. M. H. A. be-
gan in the summer of 1940. The
Y. M. H. A. furnished its own
personnel and twelve hundred
fifty-eight persons were signed
up for various phases of home
defense work. Since that time
the Y. M. H. A. has accomplished
In June of last year the Y. M.
H. A. took part in the U. S. O.
campaign and with the assistance
of the Y. W. H. A., raised a con-
siderable sum. The Y. M. H. A.
was commended very highly by
the national officials for the
splendid work they did.
From October. 1941. to Janu-
ary. 1942. the "Y" had two first-
aid classes with approximately
eighty students. These classes
were conducted by Sid Hollan-
der. From January 6, 1942, to
May 7, 1942, eight classes in
first aid were conducted by Mrs
Essie Schaffer with a total en-
rollment of two hundred seventy-
one pupils. All of these received
qualifying certificates from the
Through the efforts of Mrs. i
Schaffer. the "Y" has also been'
designated as an emergency,

One of the most popular fea-
tures of the Y. M. H. A. defense

work is the Saturday night
dances for service men which
take place every Saturday night.
The first dance was held on Sep-
tember 20th, 1941. when the "Y"
was requested by the Defense
Council to lend its building for
a dance. Since that time dances
have been held weekly. These
dances are attended by one hun-
dred service men. It is particu-
larly interesting to note that at
the beginning most of those who
attended these dances were non-
Jews. One instance stands out
first and foremost:
A young man who was at-
tending one of these dances ap-
proached Mr. Maurice Grossman,
executive director, and said, "Mr.
Grossman, my mother and 1
never liked Jews, but since 1
have been coming to the "Y" 1
want to tell you how much the
Jews mean to me now." After
saying that, he went to the tele-
phone and called his mother, in
Texas, and told her how much
the Jews mean to him. This is
one selling point for the Jewish
people. The affairs at the "Y"
for service men arc non-sec-
The "Y" dances are conducted
under strict supervision. Girls
who come to the dances arc
strictly investigated and no gir
is allowed to come or leave with
a man in uniform. The girls art
chaperoned and transportation
is arranged for them. Recently
these dances have been con-
ducted and taken over by thi
Miami Service League, a group
of women in this area headed
by Mrs. Murray Koven.
During the year the "Y" en-
tertained many service men
Jew and non-Jew alike, at pri-
ivate homes of its members
JThey maintain a registry list ot
families who are willing to en-
1 tertain a soldier for dinner or
'a week-end. At the dances
many men come here from out-
of-town who cannot get away
the same night and the "Y" pro-
vides them with lodging and
\ breakfast the next day. During
. the Passover holidays every
j Jewish soldier in this area was
provided for with home hospi-
tality, synagogue services and
sedar services in private homes.
The "Y" has been called many
times by the athletic office at

This new type mail, written on
special forms which can be ob-
tained at any postoffice or
sub-station, is photographed on
16-milimeter microfilm spools,
greatly reducing the bulk of or-
dinary mail. Upon arrival at
their destination they are repro-
duced to four by five and one-
half inches in size.
V-Mail is dropped in letter
boxes just as ordinary mail, but
when it is received at postoffices
the speed-up campaign begins.
After being photographed these
mails go to the destination by the
first available air transportation.
They rate highest priority
they go immediately!
Whereas regular mail from the
Hawaiian area to East Coast
points often takes many days
even going by convoy when
mails are congestedthe new-
type mail takes only six days
from time of posting to arrival
at its addressed destination.
Privacy, too, is another re-
deeming feature of V-Mail. After
being read by sponsors, it is not
tampered with in any way until #
opened by the addressee.
Admiral Chester W. Nimitz,
commander-in-chief of the Pa-
cific Fleet declared:
"Everyone should take ad-
vantage of the opportunity of-
fered by V-Mail. Delivery of
personal correspondence will
solve some of our mail difficul-
ties, and should ease the conges-
tion now present in our greatly
overtaxed postal system."
The V-Mail folders contain al>
instructions necessary to expe-
dite the letter.

FLORIDA'S MOST BEAUTIFUL BURIAL ESTATES
West Flagler Street at 53rd Avenue
ONLY TEN MINUTES FROM THE HEART OF MIAMI
Maybe you feel that you have already
provided adequate burial protection for your
familyby paying dues to some organization
which offers burial space. But such organi-
zations 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, scat-
tered among strangers, lack of upkeepall
because the head of the family THOUGHT he
had provided properly.
No matter how long you have been a mem-
ber of an organizationno matter how much
you have paid in duesit would still be wiser
to get a family plot directly from Mount Nebo.
This is a sure way you can prevent your loved
ones from being scattered.

On Monday morning semi-finals
in basketball and debating will
be held. From 1 until 3 a war
panel will take place at the Al-

we will be privileged to hear an
officer who fought at Pearl Har-
bor, who will give a first-hand
account of the Japanese attack.
There will also be an officer of
the Office of Civilian Defens-
and, it is hoped, a congressman.
Other distinguished speakers are
being sought. The purpose of the
panel is to bring home the work
that is being done in Congress
and in our local defense set-up,
etc., with regard to the war ef-
fort and primarily how each in-
dividual, each chapter, and the
state organization of A. Z. A.
may best serve our country in its
hour of need.
Following the war panel there
will be an election of state of-
ficers and determination of the
site for next year's convention.
After this will come the finals in
debating, the finals in oratory,

VOLUME 15 NUMBER 36
Once again the Pope has demonstrated
great humanitarianism and compassion. His
appeal to the Vichy government protested the
continued persecution of the Jewish people
and pleaded for a cessation to the deporta-
tions of all Jewish refugees to Nazi slave labor
camps in Silesia and Poland.
Despite cold rebuffs by the Nazi hooligans,
the Pope was reported to be continuing his
pressure on the Vichy officials to discontinue
the anti-Jewish arrests and modify the anti-
Jewish program. At the same time. Cardinal
Suchard, archbishop of Paris, and Cardinal
Gerlier, archbishop of Lyons, delivered strong
protests to Marshal Petain. To date, their pro-
tests have remained innefective and arrests
of Jews are continuing on a mass scale. The
protesting clergymen were informed instead
that an anti-Semitic program was a definite
part of the Laval government's policy. This
means, of course, that French Jews can no
longer look to Vichy for protection from the
Without doubt the protests have shown
once again the essential united character of
all religions. An assault on one means the
eventful annihilation of all. Today, religion
understands that it can exist only in a demo-
cratic world and has united to exterminate
Nazism. This essential co-operation has al-
ways been recognized by the Jew and so his
subseguent persecution by the Nazis has only
intensified this recognition among all religions.
Certainly, the Pope's repeated protests have
proven not only his deep compassion but the
existence of this unity and co-operattion for the
security of all.
A Priority on Nurses
To the 70,000 American nurses eligible for
Army and Navy service:
There is a priority on unmarried nurses be-
tween the ages of 21 and 40 today. It is the
priority of the Army and Navy on your ser-
As America's armed forces extend their
activities along every front in the fight for
freedom, the need for your services is increas-
ing. The Army and Navy must be supplied
with at least 3,000 nurses a month.
The source from which this increased de-
mand will be met is the Red Cross Nurses'
First Reserve, official recruiting channel for
war;, nurses. The responsibilities that have
been imposed on the Red Cross by World War
II are many. However, none is more important
than this task of rallying the nursing profession
to tie war effort.
Thousands of nurses already have res-
ponded to the call. But the need for more is
On the far-flung battlefields from Alaska
to Australia, from Iceland to Iran, and where
ever the enemy lurks, American soldiers and
sailors are fighting to preserve our way of life.
Victory depends on their health.
When they lie sick or wounded, will you be
there to help! Or will it again be a case of "too
little, too late?" The answers rest with you.
That is why we appeal to you, the 70,000
nurses eligible for war service, to enroll with
the Red Cross Nurses' First Reserve now. If
you are a graduate registered nurse, in good
health, unmarried, and under 40, write today
to the Red Cross Nursing Service, Washington,

Moon Over the
Marshal Rommel is to take advantage of
the full Mediterranean moon. Only visitors to
the Mediterranean area will understand fully
why the Nazi officer desires to do this, but
every tourist knows that the full Mediter-
ranean moon far outshines our Western lunar
displays. The common saying is that you can
read your newspaper by the full moon in the
Mediterranean. In Palestine, it is said, that
in the cities less street lighting is used at the
time of the full moon.
The time of this full moon also coincides
with a period of better weather in the Mediter-
ranean area and evidences are on hand that
the Nazis are to take advantage of all of these
auspicious events to make a two or three
prong drive aiming at Egypt, Suez, Syria and
Rommel, it is known, has been rushing re-
inforcements to this area and the visit there
last week of Winston Churchill with the simul-
taneous announcement that a new commander
of the Middle Eastern forces had been ap-
pointed, indicates that the Allies too are on the
alert. It is known that many American
bombers and American tanks have arrived.
The Middle East will in the next few weeks
become a decisive theater of war. Palestine
again looms in the headlines and the coinci-
dence that the expected drive will occur dur-
ing the Jewish High Holidays gives an added
touch of drama to the events.
It will be in a mood of greater solemnity
than usual that the Jews of Palestine on this
coming Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur in-

"The new position, whatever name is given
it, is isolation still. Where the old isolation-
ism opposed the country's determination to
face the war, the new isolationism opposes
the country's determination to face the peace.
Drawing the lines along that issue shows the
issue for what it is."Archibald MacLeish, Li-
brarian of Congress.
"Neither the collar of a priest nor the im-
munity of a legislator should protect any one
in this grave hour of our nation's destiny
from being put with the saboteurs and spies
if by word or deed he aided and abetted those
fronts and bunds which were organizing here
not only to give us a stab in the back but at
the anticipated time the coup de qrace "

"The Psychology of Fascism," a new book that will
shortly be published in England, is the work of Captain Peter
Nathan of the Royal Army Medical Corps, a young physician
who is one of England's outstanding military psychologists.
. Case histories of espionage are related in a fascinating
new book by Joseph Gollomb, entitled "Spies," and pay-
ing particular attention to the psychological aspects of the
subject Now that columnist Boake Carter has made a de-
tailed statement concerning his religious outlook it is clear
that he does not consider himself a Jew, but an "Israelite"
in the sense that the term is used by the Anglo-Israel move-
ment Did you notice, by the way, his assertion that
in 1927 his mentor, Moses Guibbory, "foretold every simple
major event in the world that happended since that year?''
. These predictions were, as we understand it, based on the
Guibbory interpretation of the Bible. .

Attempts at conversion of the
Jew to Christianity sometimes
manifest themselves in strong
forms Under the title of "We
Are Semites,"' a Catholic priest
writes an article in the monthly
organ of the Catholic Mission
Society, praising the Jews as "a
people with a divine mission.'" .
So far, so good, the reader thinks.
The Holy Father himself, speak-
ing of the spiritual indebtedness
of the Catholic faith to Judaism,
remarked that "spiritually, we
are all Semites."
But as we read further into
the article, which was mailed to
the Jewish Floridian. we find
the author urging the Jews to
embrace Christianity on the
grounds that "anti-Semitism will
not die until Christ is born in the
hearts of the Jew.' What
an appeal to make to the Jew-
ish people at this juncture in
their history! Did anti-Semi-
tism die in Germany, where
dwelt probably the most assimi-
latted of European Jewry; where
countless numbers of Jews had
escaped into the Christian fold?
The answer to the problem of
anti-Semitism must be sought
elsewhere than in the acceptance
by the Jew of the "cross of
Christ" Might not the solu-
tion rather lie in the Catholics
being truly Catholics, the Protes-
tants being truly Protestants? ...
In short, might not the answer
to the Jewish problem be found
in Christians really being true to
the ideals of their faith? The
Jewish problem is really a Chris-
Among the enemy aliens in-

a sad travesty on the exigencies
of democracy that those who
have been most outspokenly
anti-Nazi should be confined in
the same bull pens with German
nationals who still "Heil Hitler"
in their hearts.
At any rate, not even here un-
der the protection of the Ameri-
can flag, does Hitler permit those
whom he has persecuted and tor-
tured with all the agonies of
hell to enjoy peace of mind. .
His satellites, who in common
with the Jewish internees, were
shipped here from Latin Ameri-
ca countries, engage in physical
assaults upon the Jews Such
attacks took place recently at
Camp Blanding ... So vicious
were they that the Jews had to
