NAZIS ARREST COUNCIL OF.
ANTWERP FOR "SABOTAGE",
Havana (WNS)A more lib-
eral policy towards refugees
from war zones and lands of op-
pression in Europe will be ap-
plied by the Cuban authorities to
those seeking refuge in the West-
ern Hemisphere, especially in al-
lowing refugees temporary shel-
ter pending receipt of permanent
immigration visas elsewhere.
Assurances to this effect were
given Dr. Alexander Vergoda.
newly appointed chief of the Cu-
ban Immigration Department, to
Isaac Yagodnik, president of the
Centro Israelite de Cuba, an af-
filiate of the HIAS-ICA Emi-
gration Association. An official
decree, which will enable refu-
gees from Europe to stay tempo-
rarily in Cuba until their im-
migration visas to South, Cen-
tral and North American coun-
tries are obtained, will be issued
The visas for temporary stay
will be issued if a satisfactory
guarantee is furnished as to the
political status of the prospect-
ive immigrant and if financial
requirements are guaranteed.
The new liberal policy was
manifested in the recent release
of 169 refugees from Triscornia,
the concentration station for de-
tained immigrants. The remain-
ing inmates at Trisconia will
soon gain their freedom, Dr. Ver-
Geneva (WNS)Nazi authori-
ties in occupied Belgium have I
arrested the 12 members of the]
Jewish Council of Antwerp on
the charge that the Jewish lead-
ers sabotaged the Nazi plan to'
deport the Jewish population of
Belgium to the Polish ghettos, it
was learned here this week. The |
Jewish Council had been set up
by the Nazis to serve as an in-
termediary between the Jewish
population and the Nazi rulers.
Meanwhile, a radio report from
Budapest stated that 47 Hun-
garian Jews are among the 60
persons now being tried in Hun-
gary on charges that they or-
ganized a sabotage ring in behalf
of Soviet Russia.

New York (WNS)The possi-
bility that fuller wartime use can
now be made of a majority of the
6.000 emigre doctors in the Unit-
ed States, refugees from Hitler-
ism, was foreseen this week by
Dr. Tracy J. Putnam, vice chair-
man of the National Committee
for the Resettlement of Foreign
Physicians, in a statement which
commented on a recent directive
of the Board of Procurement and
The directive pointed out that
the army and navy are not in a
position to accept such physi-
cians as commissioned officers
because they are not citizens, and
recommended to chairmen of
State Procurement and Assign-
ment Services that use be made
of these physicians in essential
civilian positions, particularly in
critical areas where more physi-
cians are needed.
"The stand by the board, that
emigre physicians can be of use
to the war effort by absorption
in essential civilian posts clari-
fies the way for greater utiliza-
tion of this group at a time when
the nation is desperately short of
trained medical men." Dr. Put-
nam said. He added, "the gen-
eral public will now appreciate
that though emigre doctors are
eager to serve with the military
medical services, they cannot do
so, and that the full utilization of
their skills and training must be
in other areas particularly
where an emergency exists and
they can serve on a basis of tem-
porary placement for the duration
of the war."
In a limited number of states
where foreign-trained physicians
are eligible to practice, the war-
duration arrangement, which Dr.
Putnam's committee favors, will
make it possible for emigre doc-
tors to fill temporarily, practices
vacated by the entrance of Amer-
ican physicians into military ser-
vice Dr. Putnam stressed the
fact that as refugees from Hitler,
emigre doctors are most eager
to be of fullest service to the
' country that has given them hav-
en. However, the majority have
! not been in this country the min-
imum five years needed to com-
plete citizenship requirements,
and thus are not eligible for ar-
|my medical service.

Government-in-exile will shortly

I emanating from Moscow that Pol-
\ ish army officers in Russia are
discriminating against Jews in
the Polish legions, it was dis-
closed this week.
The charge was made by Wan-
da Wasilewska, editor of a Polish
Communist paper in Russia, who
said that the Polish army was
discharging Jews to prevent them
from leaving for the Middle East
with the Polish forces. In recent
months, many Polish divisions
have been shifted to the Middle
East and soldiers have been per-
mitted to take their families with

A resident of Miami Beach, he
came here with his parents, Rev.

COST OF SETTLING
London (WNS)Nazi radio sta-
tions in Germany and all Axis-
occupied countries joined this
week in blaming "international
Jewry" for the highly successful
American invasion of French
North Africa. Nazi broadcasters
accused the Jews of pacing the
way for the landing of American
troops by bribing French colonial
The Nazi radio in Stuttgart
stated that Jews in Algeria. Mo-
rocco and Tunisia had been se-
cretly conducting anti-Vichy po-
litical activities in these French
colonies and had undermined
their resistance to the American
invaders. The Nazi announcer
said that the Jews had plotted to
"betray" the French colonies in
revenge for the anti-Jewish poli-
cies of the Vichy government.
The Na/.i controlled radio in
Tunis reported that General Au-
gustc Nogues. pro-Nazi Pierre
Laval's resident-general in Mo-
rocca, had ordered the arrest of
hundreds of Jews in Morocco
when informed of the landing of
American forces. The Jews were
arrested because of their "in-
tense pro-United Nations' feel-
Hundreds of Jews were ar-
rested also in Tunisia upon ord-
ers of the Vichy governor who
said that the Jews were acting as
"American agents." A rigid
curfew was imposed on all Jews
not arrested, forbidding them to
leave their homes from early
evening to dawn.
It was estimated here that be-
tween 150.000 and 200.000 Jews
reside in French North Africa.
The United States invasion has
saved them from falling into
Nazi hands and will probably
result in their release from in-
ternment and slave camps.
There are large Jewish com-
munities also in Algeria, partic-
ularly in Algiers and Oran, and
in Bizerte, Tunisia, where there
are many Italian Jews, who suf-
fered equally with the French
Jews at the hands of anti-Semitic
are continuing to defy Nazi anti-
Jewish regulations despite the
threats of stern reprisals, accord-
ing to the Aneta news agency.
Syracuse WNSHayim Green-
berg, noted labor Zionist leader,
estimated this week that it would
cost three billion dollars to set-
tle 3.000.000 homeless European
Jews after the war. Speaking at
the 24th annual convention of the
Zionist Laborite Party of Ameri-
ca. Mr. Greenberg called upon
Jews in the United States to
raise the first SI.000.000 for this
Advocating international con-
trol of Palestine, Mr. Greenberg
declared that "a Provisional Con-
dominion over Palestine should
be set up. including representa-
tives of the Jews in Palestine,
the Arabs in Palestine, the Jew-
ish Agency and the International
"It is to be clearly understood"
the Zionist leader continued,
"that this Provisional Condimin-
ion must get into Palestine
enough Jews to constitute a ma-
jority and thereafter turn the
government over to the inhabit-
ants of the country themselves.
An Arab Federation is practic-
ally out of the question, as the
Arabs themselves will not set
up one without outside force. The
Jews cannot do it for them. The
concept of bi-national state is
meaningless, especially as ap-
plied to Palestine, where the
question not only involves the
people there but also millions
who must come in."

about Pvt. Sidney Sandier, a for-
mer employe of Saks Fifth Ave-
nue on the Beach While a
show buyer for the Lincoln Road
establishment, he usually ate his
lunch under the palms near the
ninth hole of, the Municipal golf
course Now, through the for-

Sandier ate at other places be-
side the golf course, among them
a Beach hotel where as a trainee
he later did K P duty ... The
army literally caught up with
Sandier While at the Beach
last spring, the army took over
the hotel in which he lived .
He moved twice thereafter and
each time the army occupied his
quarters Finally, in June he
enlisted while in New York City
for a spell and eventually was
sent back to the Beach.

BOY AMERICA RESCUED

THE FAR EAST
The Nazis are now doing something of a
blitz in reverse in the Near East theatre of the
war. Perhaps this is an omen of the day
when they will be doing a general blitz back-
wards throughout Europe. It may be predict-
ed that when they do begin this general blitz
backwards, they will run even more speedily
backward than they ran forward in the first
days of the war.
Co-incident with this heartening news in
the Near East came another bit of happy news
-the arrival of a large contingent of American
troops on Palestine soil.
The United States has more Jews than any
other country in the world. The United States
Jews have given more money for the building
up of Palestine, yet America has been sadly
in the background when it came to determin-
ing the policy of Palestine.
With the Yanks in Palestine with the Red.
White and Blue waving in Jerusalem and Hai-
fa, perhaps another day has come when
America will assume the role to which she is
Just what the future holds for Palestine is a
matter like many other things in this war-
shaken world, about which we cannot speak
with any preciseness now. We do not know
who will hold the Mandate for Palestine nor do
we even know that the Mandate system will
be maintained, but if it is, it is not an impossi-
bility that America itself as the country with
the largest number of Jews, may be entrusted
with it. How the American people as a whole
would react to this, we cannot say, but it is
more than probable the Pilgrim Fathers would
have smacked with delight at the idea.
THE SHOE FITS
Reprinted below is a paragraph from the
"Editor's Chair" column of the Jewish Post,
Indianapolis Anglo-Jewish Publication. Your
editor offers it to the readers, as echoing his
Every once in a while I'll be stopped on
the street or at meetings by someone who'll
start off by declaring their disillusionment and
disappointment about me and The Post and our
courage. Why didn't you write a scathing
editorial about the Talmud Torah situation, or
are you afraid to criticize the failure of the
Kirshbaum Forum to include Jewish speakers
in its schedule, they ask.
I don't mind criticism, and I am so used to
sticking my chin out, that another clip to that
delicate spot won't make me any more groggy
But I want to make a declaration. The pages
of The Post are open to practices in this com-
munity and state. If you guys mean what you
say, then how about putting it in writing, sign-
ing your name and sending it on. Stick your
neck out, if you really are sincere. If I be-
lieve your contentions are valid, I may com-
ment myself, but the next time you boil up in-
side about this or that, don't transfer your an-
ger to me or this paper, just give your own in-
testinal fortitude a test by deciding whether or
not you'd be willing to put your identity to
whatever axe you have to grind.

Formed originally in response
to heavy pressure from negro
groups who stressed the dangers
of disaffection among their peo-
ple, the FEPC has had consider-
able support from the White'
House and has used its prestige
boldly against strong interests. It
cited some of the biggest firms
in the country for violation of
the President's anti-discrimina-
tion order and made them prom-
ise to mend their ways. It held
hearings in Birmingham on dis-
crimination against negroes, and
survived the concentrated on-
slaught by Southern democrats
It did not survive unscathed,
however. Partly as a result of
the Birmingham hearings, the,
President transferred it from his
own immediate supervision in
the Office for Emergency Man-
agement to Paul V. McNutt's
War Manpower Commission. This
was a blow to the FEPC. It had
been expecting an increased bud-
get, more personnel, new pow-
ers, and found itself subordinat-
ed instead to an agi ncy that felt
us own powers insufficient and
already had two branches that
approximated the functions of its

behind the scenes. On Oct. 27.
the WMC announced that field
workers on the Negro Manpower
Service and the Minority Groups
Service would be transferred to
the FEPC, and it appeared that
these two rivals of the commit-
tee were virtually abolished. The
all-important matter of budget
and the precise weight the FEPC
could swing in shaping WMC
policy remain to be determine.
Both probably depend on over-
all plans evolved to solve the
Pending the emergence of those
plans, the FEPC has been making
itself felt as it has not done for
several months. It has renewed
its interest in the discrimination
against Mexican in the south-
west. It is talking of hearings to
break down alleged prejudice
against negroes and Jews in the
Post Office Department. It is
needling the United States Em-
ployment Service to refuse or-
ders from employers who specify-
that they want "white" or "Chris-
This last activity seems near-
est fruition. It also illustrates!
the kind of difficulty the FEPC
IS most likely to run into.
Following the custom of pri-
vate employment agencies, the
USES formerly asked employers
to specify the race and religion
of the workers they would like to
have. This was modified some-
what when the regulations were
changed to read that referrals
should be made without regard to
race, color or creed "except when
an employers order includes
tl OSe specifications which the
employer is not willing to elim-
Now the FEPC wants this
changed. It wants the USES to
refuse all help to an employer
unless he eliminates discriminat-
ory demands. In the interest of
speeding the war effort, the
USES would prefer to send an
employer whatever workers it
has in stock, negro. Jewish, alien.
Chineseas long as they meet
the requirements of the work.
Then, if the employer obviously
discriminates, he would be re-
ferred to the FEPC for suitable
The FEPC maintains that it
does more harm to the war effort
in the long run for a government
agency to refrain from fighting
discrimination with any means in
its power, than it does to delay-
supplying men to employers until
they agree not to discriminate.
The President may have to de-
cide that one.
Just to give you an idea of the
complications in what you might
have thought was a simple issue:
now that the USES has omitted
the question of religion from its
questionnaires, it's next to im-
impossible to ascertain whether
employers are discriminating
against Jews or Catholics or
both, or not, since individual
complaints can be adjusted and
statistical evidence is no longer
-TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE-
-By PHINEAS J. BIRON-
That canard which the United Press circulated last week
about the "resignation of Henry Morgenthau was inspired by
political gossips who are trying to undermine the Secretary
of the Treasury It's true that Morgenthau has evinced a
genuine interest in the fate of homeless Jewry ... But the story
that he was considering leadership in the Zionist Organiza-
tion is cut out of whole cloth One of the silliest arguments
against a Jewish army of stateless and Palestinian Jews was
advanced recently by Major George Fielding Elliot, the mili-
tary expert who last year predicted Russia's collapse within
six weeks The Major says that a Jewish army would re-
guire time for training and eguipping ... So what? What
about the American boys in the American Army? Are
they born with rifles on their shoulders?
IN THE AIR
Leonard Lyons reports the story of Monseigneur Chaptal,
Auxiliary Bishop of Paris, who insists on wearing a yellow
band and the Mogen David on his sleeve as he walks the
streets of that Nazi-occupied city The most reverend gen-
tleman's explanation for his voluntary identification with
the non-Aryans is that not all of his grandparents were one
hundred per cent Aryan Which reminds us of an incident
reported by a reader of the Aufbau, the German-language
refugee weekly ... It seems that a certain German Jew who
had obtained his visa for America was helped greatly, it
secretly, by an Aryan friend of long standing ... As the refu-
gee finally was enabled to board the train that would take
him out of Naziland, he had a farewell meeting with his
friend, and lamented his inability to do anything to express
in a tangible way his appreciation for the aid he had re-
ceived And the Aryan said: "But there is a great favor
you could do me ... I would be very grateful to you if you a
sell me your Star of David band" Amazed, the Jew re-
plied that of course he'd be glad to leave the "Jew badge
with his friend "But what in the world do you want it
for?" he asked Replied the other: "After all, there a pos-
sibility that Hitler may be overthrown here some day
And then this Jew badge will protect all who wear it
P. S.: The Aryan insisted on paying two hundred reichmarks
for the Mogen David.

In a semi-tropical climate such
as that enjoyed by South Florida,
the roof of any building, regard-

Hence, it is important that par-
ticular attention be given to the
roof, gutters and meal work con-
nected with the roof.

AN OPEN LETTER
"CARAVAN" COMMITTEE MEET TO TALK OVER PLANS
November 11, 1942
' Miami. Florida.
Due to the sincerity of a great
i number of people in Miami, and
their many inquiries as to the
| status of Kosher butcher stores
, in Miami, permit me to advise
j ihat a careful study will be made
! immediately, and the findings
and recommendations will be
submitted to the general public.
The problem in a Jewish com-
munity has always been, not on-
ly in regard to "Kashrus" but
to "Chinuch" and other matters
as well that too many people are
prone, to criticize from the dist-
ance but fear to come forward
and help in the elimination of
"Hefkaerus," or disorganized vi-
I tal Jewish matters.
A statement will be forthcom-
ing pertaining to Kashrus as soon
as an opinion and recommenda-
tion are formulated.
Very truly yours,
Rabbi Max Shapiro.

BRITH HILLEL FOUNDATIONS AND ALEPH ZADIK ALEPH
Baltimore (WNS) Arthur
Havs Sulzberger. president and
publisher of the New York
Times, who returned recently
from a trip to Britain, this week
called upon Jewish and non-Jew-
ish supporters of Zionist aims to
drop their demands for the cre-
ation of a Jewish Army in Pal-
estine and for the post-war es-
tablishment of a Jewish State in
the Holy Land.
Speaking before the Brother-
hood of the Madison Avenue
Temple, Mr. Sulzberger stated
that the Zionist demands were
helping to create problems in the
Moslem world which merely add
to the difficulties of the United
"Presumably the British gov-
ernment has decided that all oth-
er things considered, it will not
help win the war to meet the
demand for a separate Jewish ar-
my." Mr. Sulzberger said. "Furth-
ermore, the United States gov-
ernment has evidently not felt it
either wise or expedient to in-
tervene with the British govern-
ment in this matter. It seems to
me. therefore, that since these de-
cisions have been madeand I
think made with a conviction
that will not be changed, at least
during this warit serves no use-
ful purpose to continue, at (his
time, a campaign which not only
embarrasses the United Nations,
but can be distorted by the Axis
in the Arab world.
"I wish that I had the ability to
set that problem straight and
teach my fellow-Americans who
are not Jews that it would be
wise to examine all the facts in
that complicated situation before
lending their names to the ex-
treme Zionist cause, or the de-
mand for a Jewish army."
Asserting that the Zionist aims
did not represent the desires of
all Jews, the New York Times
publisher added: "If I, as a Jew,
can help to impress the world
that what Jews want far more
than a home of their own is the
riKht to call any place their home.

Meanwhile, while allied forces
plunged across the Egyptian des-
ert in pursuit of Rommel's beat-
en troops, the Rome Radio an-
nounced that all Jewish men of
military age in Tripoli had been
arrested and had been moved
from '.he city to a concentration
camp somewhere in the desert.
The Rome Radio said that this
action was taken "as a matter of
precaution" and charged that the
15,000 Jews in Tripoli, a poten-
tial jumping off place for an in-
vasion of Italy, were pro-British.
Jewish women and children in
the city were forbidden to leave
their homes between six o'clock
in the evening and dawn.

"Sabotage." it will be recalled,
exposes with documented evi-
dence the machinations of Amcr-

idea for the B'nai B'rith Lodges
to tax their members to present

That's the only way to reach them

scribe this "awful blot on the fair
name of Miami," this "reflection
upon the patriotism of the Miami
area." The Associated Press sent
stories throughout the country.
Feeling in restaurant conversa-
tions ran high and a certain
"100% American" group began
to call the Jewish hotel men with
threats to break their windows.
Minimum of Cost
In view of all this hulabaloo,
which made good newspaper
copy, it was a source of satis-
faction to read a few days ago a
report of the House of Represen-
tatives military affairs commit-
tee, on the army-hotel negotia-
tions This report lauded the
leasing and training program and
pointed out that all of the trans-
actions had been carried out with
such fairness on the part of the
hotel men that the average cost
per man in training was consid-
erably lower than spent by the
war department for the construc-
tion of camps:
"The efficiency of the army's
program here (in Miami Beach)
clearly was silhouetted against
the per man housing in camps
and cantonments when it was
pointed out that the average cost
per man under the cost-plus-a-
lixed-fee contracts (camps and
cantonments) was S684.94 .
The highest individual camp on
this basis was Camp Polk, La.,
where the cost ran to S1263.ll
per man, this against a $20.00 per
man figure for Miami Beach" .
The report further indicated that
90.000 men had been trained to
date with a minimum of cost and
maximum of efficiency.
These facts are worthy of wide-
spread circulation We wonder
how many of them will percolate
to other parts of the country,
where the wire dispatches origin-
al ly were sent Since the House
report is not sensational enough,
we doubt that it will reach the
huge audience it should And
many who drew false conclusions
from the original stories will not
have them corrected.
At any rate, the record is clear
for all who honestly want to ex-
amine it If each reader of our
column will clip this item and
send it to a friend in another part
of the country a tremendous
amount of good will be clone
through the word-of-mouth pro-
paganda that will ensue.

We've sometimes thought that
refreshments at meetings brings
out the membership, but we've
learned the error of this unkind
thought. At the last meeting of
Sholem Lodge, Tuesday evening,
a near record attendance of mem-
bers and ladies attended. And
although refreshments were
served, there was no advance
notice, so it was the guest speak-
er., Leslie B. Bain, who filled
to capacity the Beth David Tal-
After a brief outline of the lat-
ent, in addition to the patent,
causes of the present war, Mr.
Bain undertook to answer ques-
tions. Interesting questions were
propounded which were answered
by Mr. Bain, according to his
own point of view. Only the late-
ness of the hour compelled the
curtailment of the open forum,
and not the dearth of questions.
Nominations of officers took
place in the true tradition of the
"solid south." that is to say, nom-
ination now just requires the con-
firmation of election. And so at

country for quite some years, re-

viewed his test declared that he
would be excellent for the part.
But Warner Brothers vetoed him.

From the Egyptian battlefront
comes this story, credited to a
captured Italian officer who was
describing II Duce's shortage of
manpower ... It seems that a
man without arms was called up
for military service, and. much
to his surprise, was passed by the
examining physician ... He was
sent to a training camp, where
a lieutenant looked him over
carefully, and said: "You're just
the man we've been looking for."
"But what can I do?" asked the
armless one ... So the officer
took him over to another soldier,
who was engaged in filling a gas
tank "Your job," he told the
newcomer, "is to tell that man
when the tank is full ... He
can't tell, because he's blind."

The unusually well attended
meeting brought out many mem-
bers who visited with their breth-
ren for the first time in many
moons. So overcome did the of-
ficers appear to be that a num-
ber were asked to rise and they
received an ovation. It is nice
to see apreciation manifested so
vociferously; it must make one
feel good to learn that he has
been missed. Of course there
are many members who might
stay away for longer periods and
never be missed, and there are
others who attend meetings regu-
larly, and you might never know
they were present. But we are |
going to reserve our applause for
those members who attend met-
ing after meeting for they are the
backbone of the organization.
To one who has hud some ex-
perience with parliamentary pro-

remarkably free Irom points of

of information, previous ques-

reconsider, or to reconsider an
spread upon the minutes. Hence
it was doubly startling to witness
even the small display of parlia-

meeting. We liked the free in-
terpretation of motions by Louis

interpretations since he brought
