LEHMAN TO
DIRECT RELIEF OF
FREED PEOPLES
Washington (WNS)Governor
Herbert H. Lehman, who is re-
tiring after four terms as Gov-
ernor of New York, has been
appointed by President Roose-
velt to direct the feeding, cloth-
ing and rehabilitation of nations
freed from the Axis yoke by the
United Nations.
The Jewish Governor's as-
signment will be to formulate
plans and determine policy for j
the tremendous United Nations' I
tasks of rebuilding the war-torn
world after Fascism has been .
crushed. All of the United Na-1
tions will join in the task, it was,
said, although the United States, j
the wealthiest and the least dam-
aged of the free countries, will
probably make the greatest con-
tribution.
In addition to feeding, clothing
and sheltering the starving mil-
lions of Europe, Asia and Africa,
Mr. Lehman will be in charge of
the Allied program to rebuild
these countries industrially and
agriculturally after the war. A
start in this program has already
been made. Last week Presi-
dent Roosevelt issued instruct-
ions to provide weapons, food
and clothing to the armed forces
and citizens of North African
territories occupied by the Unit-
ed Nations.
Among the many millions of
homeless and starving people in
Nazi-occupied Europe, there are
several million Jews, now in
concentration camps, labor gangs
and ghettos, who will need aid in
reconstructing their lives. Hun-
dreds of thousand of Jewish re-
fugees are scattered across the
face of the earth, living, for the
most part, under the direst cir-
cumstances.
REFUGEE WINS COMMISSION
IN ARMY MEDICAL CORPS
New York (WNS) Four
months after he offered to volun-
teer as a private, Polish-born Dr.
Leon Gottfried, 38, a refugee, was
granted a first lieutenant's com-
mission in the Medical Corps of
the U. S. Army, because of his
status as a co-belligerent.
"I am proud to be accepted as
an officer in the army, especially
since I am a non-citizen. To be
placed on an equal footing with
American officers confirms what
I have heard all my life and that
is that America is the land of
opportunity, regardless of one's
race or creed," Lt. Gottfried stat-
ed when he received notice of his
commission. He said his brother
in England and his parents in
Palestine have awaited this word
with as much anxiety as he.

SON IS KILLED IN ACTION;
FATHER WANTS TO ENLIST
New York (WNS)State Sen-
ator Lazarus Joseph, whose 22
year old son. Captain Jacob
Joseph of the United States Mar-
ines was killed in action at Guad-
acanal on Oct. 22, expressed de-
termination this week to join
the Marines. The Jewish legis-
lator is 50 years old.
Mr. Joseph was notified of his
sons death in a wire from Gen-
eral Thomas Holcomb. Marine
Corps commandant. The Jewish
State Senator, who had been for
some time trying to get into the
Marines, said: "I am now more
anxious than ever to get into ser-
vice Captain Joseph was be-
lieved to be the youngest captain
in the Marine Corps.
London ,WNS)Lieut. Dwight
D. Eisenhower, American com-
manding officer in French North
Africa, has appointed Jewish
leaders in Algeria and Moroc-
co to special commissions estab-
lished by American military au-
thorities to devise a formula for
the immediate abogation of all
anti Jewish laws throughout
French North Africa, it was re-
ported here this week.
The reports said that General
Eisenhower had conferred at
great length with the Jewish
leaders on the best methods of
restoring complete equality and
independence to the Jews in
North Africa. As reported in
WNS dispatches last week, sev-
eral cities in Algeria, principally
Algiers, have already declared
anti-Jewish legislation in those
cities null and void, but American
military authorities plan to an-
nounce a common procedure for
the repeal of anti-Jewish laws
for all of French North Africa.
Jewish leaders in Algeria and
Morocco have advised the Jews
not to buy back their shops and
enterprises which were confiscat-
ed by the pro-Nazi Vichy officials
and turned over to "Aryan" man-
agers and coordinators. Shortly
after American troops landed in
the French African colonies the
"Aryan" proprietors "offered" to
sell the confiscated shops at re-
duced prices to their former Jew-
ish owners.
It was expected that official
regulations governing the repeal
of all anti-Jewish statutes and
the return to their rightful own-
ers of all confiscated properties
will be announced shortly. It
was indicated that wherever pos-
sible Jews would be compensat-
ed for material damages incurred
as a result of the Vichy anti-
Jewish decrees.
President Roosevelt's announce-
ment in Washington that he had
requested abrogation of all Nazi-
inspired decrees and laws in
North Africa and the liberation
of anti-Nazi prisoners was seen
as strengthening the hands of
Gen. Eisenhower, who sever;.i
days before had assured Jewish
leaders that equal civil and po-
litical rights would be restored to
them.
The American commanding of-
ficer had extended assurances al-
so that the presence in North
Africa of Admiral Darlan. Vichy's
former vice-premier, would in no
way interfere with the contem-
plated abrogation of the anti-
Jewish laws. Many Jewish lead-
ers had at first been dismayed
by the treatment accorded the
erstwhile pro-Nazi collaboration-
ist by the Allied authorities.
Berne (WNS) The puppet
French government announced
this week that Jews in France
will be interned as hostages to 1
insure the safety of Nazi and
Vichy officials held by American
military authorities in French
North Africa. Speaking over the
Paris radio, a Laval aide stat-
ed:
"We must defend all French
nationals who are exposed today
in North Africa to the brutalities
of the English and the Americans
and to the vindictiveness of 1s-
real. There are still more Jews
in France. They should become
the best guarantors of security
for the French national revolu-
tionaries who are at present un-
able to return from our colonies."

OF AFRICAN L
POLISH JEWS BUOYED BY
ALLIED SUCCESS IN AFRICA
London (WNS)Announcement
that all existing anti-Jewish laws
in French North Africa would be
abrogated and that equal civil
and political rights would be re-
stored to the more than 300.000
Jews there, was greeted with
cheers at a special meeting here
of the British Board of Jewish
Deputies.
Prof. Selig Brodetsky. presi-
dent of the board, expressed thi
hope that the thousands of Eu-
ropean Jewish refugees held in
Nazi concentration camps and in
slave labor camps in North Af-
rica would be freed with other
anti-Nazi prisoners, in accord-
ance with President Rooseevlt's
announcement.
Prof. Brodetsky stated that
while the position of the thou-
sands of Jews in what was form-
erly unoccupied France had
worsened as a result of the com-
plete Nazi occupation of France,
the Allied occupation of North
Africa had resulted in the libera-
tion of the Jews there and in the
removal of the threat to the Jew-
ish community in Palestine. He
added that the prompt abrogation
of the anti-Jewish laws in North
Africa pointed up the need for
the Jews to have their post-war
demands ready for submission to
the United Nations.
New York (WNS)President
Roosevelt's announcement that
he had requested the abrof
of all laws and decrees in; I
by Nazi ideologists in F
North Africa was welcomec :
week "as the beginning o.
realization of the ideals of the
great Atlantic Charter" by the
General Jewish Council.
A message expressing gratifi-
cation over the speedy abroga-
tion of the Nazi-inspired laws,
which has resulted in the res-
toration of equal civil and polit-
ical rights to the 110,000 Jews in
Algeria and the 160,000 Jews in
French Morocco, was sent to Mr.
Roosevelt by Edgar J. Kaufmann
of Pittsburgh, chairman of the
General Jewish Council.
Mr. Kaufmann's message to
the White House said: "The Gen-
eral Jewish Council on behalf ot
its constituent member agencies
the American Jewish Commit-
tee, the B'nai B'rith and the
Jewish Labor Committeejoins
all freedom-loving people the
world over in expressing gratifi-
cation upon the promptness of
your action regarding the abroga-
tion of all laws and decrees in-
spired by the Nazi government or
Nazi ideologists in Northern Af-
rica, and the liberation of all
persons who have been in
oned because of their oppo. l
to Nazism.
"This action will be reg; 1
by the entire civilized wor
the beginning of the realization
of the ideals of the great Atlantic
Charter which we all hope will
soon be ushered in victoriously
by the Allied armies of libera-
tion."
POSTPONE BILL TO ADMIT

U. S. ARMY ORGANIZES
BATTALION OF REFUGEES
London (WNS)Despite Nazi
measures to suppress reports of
the great United Nations offen-
sive in North Africa, news of the
Allied victories has reached the
Jews interned in Polish ghettos
and concentration camps, it was
reported here.
Washington (WNS)The cre-
ation of an Austrian battalion in
the U. S. Army was announced
this week by Secretary of War
Stimson who disclosed that refu-
gees from Austria had appealed
for an opportunity to serve as a
unit in liberating their homeland
and other nations now under Nazi
yoke.
The Austrian battalion. Secre-
tary Stimson said, will be an in-
fantry unit. "It will demonstrate
to Austrians all over the world
the determination of the United
Sates to free Austria and her
people from oppressive Axis con-
jtrol." he added. The battalion's
'officers at first will be Amcri-
'cans of Austrian extraction, who
'will be replaced later by Austri-
ans qualifying for commissions
in officers' schools.
Washington (WNS)The House
Committee on Immigration and
Naturalization this week post-
poned indefinitely its scheduled
hearing on the resolution intro-
uced by Representative Emanuel
Cellcr calling upon the United
States to open its doors to refu-
gees fleeing persecution in what
was formerly unoccupied France.
The postponement was made at
the request of Mr. Celler whe
pointed out that the Nazi occupa-
tion of all France made it im-
possible the realization of the
purposes of his bill. The resolu-
tion will be brought up an
he added, when the siluatioi
France changes.
NEW ORGANIZATION ASJ
JEWS REGARDED AS NATION
New York (WNS)A resolu-
tion demanding that the Jews be
represented as a nation in the
councils of the United Nations
was adopted this week by 3.000
persons attending a joint mass
meeting held under the auspices
of the New Zionist Organization
and the Jewish State Party.
The resolution demanded that
Jewish parties and organizations
which uphold Jewish nationalism
form a United Jewish Council to
represent the Jewish people as a
unit in the councils of the United
Nations."

We have commented once be-
fore upon the value of keeping
records for the future: "The
presentation of plaques or service
flags and the tribute paid to men
in the service through a com-
munity roll of honor are concrete
means of counteracting the lies
whispered about Jews not join-
ing the service Wherever pos-
sible we must make their rec-
ords of our war participation as
enduring as possible."
For this reason we were espe-
cially gratified to note and give
proper publicity to the plaque de-
dicated by the Beth Jacob con-
gregation last week Not only
was the ceremony itself a source
of inspiration and satisfaction to
the parents of the men in service,
but the plaque itself, a beauti-
ful physical symbol of Jewish
dedication to American ideals,
will remain as a memorial for
years to come.
We venture to say, in the light
of present conditions, that ere
long many others will be added to
the initial 47 names recorded as
members of the congregation who
have gone forth to serve their
country in its great hour of need.
The Service League of the con-
gregation, which is responsible
for the plaque, is to be congratu-
lated upon its efforts.

Y. M. H. A. to Form Cub Troop
Our genial vice-president and
chairman of the board of direc-
tors, Leo Ackerman, is sponsor-
ing a brand new idea in the "Y."
Leo says that there are many boys
j between the ages of 9 and 11 who
'cannot join the Scout Troop and
who should be organized into a
Cub troop. At a conference held
recently with A. S. Macfarlane.
chief of the Boy Scouts of Dade
County and the Boy Scout com-
mittee of the Y. it was decided to
form a new Cub troop.
Cubbing is a program for the
younger boys. 9, 10. and 11 years
of age. Today, after years of ex-
periment by hundreds of leaders!,
and after scientific research fin-
anced by the Laura Spelman
Rockefeller Memorial, the Boy
Scouts of America is meeting a
growing demand of the agea
program of home-centered activi-
ties for boys of pre-Scout age.
Have you a son between the
ages of 9 and 11? Are there any
boys between those ages in your
neighborhood? If so. please call
the "Y" 3-4012 immediately and
give their names and addresses.
Mr. Grossman is now making a
survey of all boys between those
ages. As soon as this is com-
pleted, a meeting of the parents
will be called and a Cub Troop
will be organized. Please co-op-
erate with us as this is a very
worthwhile project.
Home Camp Reunion Soon
The annual mid-winter reunion
of the Home Camp will be held
during the week of December 21.
All children who have attended
the Home Camp, counsellors and
instructors will gather during the
day for a renewal of friendship.
More details will be given later.

Freedom Follows The Flag
America and the whole civilized world
were gladdened with the news of the surprise
landing of American forces in North Africa but
to probably no people was this guite as good
news as to the Jews of North Africa. There
are 330,000 of themone of the most colorful
and most ancient of Jewish communities in
the world. Some historians are of the belief
that even in the time of the first Temple there
was a Jewish community in North Africa.
It was highly dramatic that this ancient
Je *lri community which existed yet when the
kirjcr' sat on the throne of Israel and Hebrew
p*' ?ts preached democracy, should have
oeen rescued by the troops of the youngest of
landsthe land which is the exemplar of de-
mocracy today.
The White House and the State Department
have indicated that the monstrous Nuremberg
anti-Jewish laws which have become part of
the code of every land coming under the Axis
shadow is to be abrogated. The foul code
which has reduced Jews in great parts of the
world to a condition far below that of the slave-
has received its first great setback.
Some day the full story of the accomplish-
ment of this momunental act of liberation will
be told, when the deeds of the President, of
General Eisenhower, of Secretary Hull and
Assistant Secretary of State Berle have been
pieced together from memoirs and diaries, au-
tobiographies and other sources of historical
data.
Those charged with official authority in
America today will be long remembered in
Jewish history. In this connection, it will not
be amiss to point out that the State Department
in particular is lodged with an enormous re-
sponsibility and at the same time a supreme
opportunity.
None have tasted of the bitter dregs of Naz-
ism as the Jews, yet lacking a geographical
base, they are in the position of the least, in-
sofar as undoing the wrong is concerned. It
is for this reason that the Jews of the world, not
only the Jews of America, look to the American
government, not for special attention, but rath-
er for seeing to it that simple justice is done.
America, more than any other land, formed by
many strains and all races, has never been a
land in the simple sense of geography alone.
When it was bom, it dedicated itself to a prin-
ciple, that "all men are created equal." To go
back on this principle, would be to cease to be
America.
Happily, Washington has shown that we
are not going back on itthat we have re-
solved indeed that no treasure is too high to
pay for its realization.

By CHARLES BENSON
threat events of the past
week in North Africa could not
tiei? overshadowing the appoint-
m3i;: of Frederick Winant as
Chfi'an of the executive com-
mitte of the Middle East Supply
Center. Yet the latter event was
by no means so minor as it may
seem by contrast.
The Middle East Supply Center
is charged with meeting the non-
military needs of an area as large
as the United States and a popu-
lation of almost 80.000.000
among them at least 750.000
Jews. This figure includes the
peoples of Egypt. Iran, Iraq. Sy-
ria, Lebanon. Trans-Jordan. Sau-
di Arabia. Ethiopia. Palestine. Su-
dan, Malta, Cyprus, Aden, British
Somaliland, Eritrea and occupied
Italian lands in Africa. It does
not include the thousands of ref-
ugees from Poland who have
fourcd through the Caucasus into
ran and thence to the east eoast
of Africa. But included or not.
they are being fed and supplied.
Mr. Winant is the brother of
John G. Winant, our Lincoln-
esque ambassador to Great Brit-
ain. He has served his country
in a number of delicate jobs, in-
cluding that of liaison man be-
tween the State Department and
the Lend-Lease Administration.
Since August, he has been in the
Middle East on supply work.
His five-man committeethree
Britishers and two American
f operates the supply center as part
cf ,uO Middle Eastern War Coun-
cil 'll? latter body has of
course jeen run by the British.
Bu* DO /. with North Africa and
tht die East about to become
a single theatre of operations by
the elimination of Marshal Rom-
mel and his Africa Corps, it
seems likely that our assumption
of a coordinate role in the hand-
ling of supplies will be followed
by our taking the same position
in military matters along the
whole line from Gibraltar to the
Indian border. In any case, the
great amounts of supplies reach-
ing the Middle East from the
United States stand as an assur-
I nee that our interest in the area
, will continue to be a substanial
one. both now and at the peace
table.
It does little good to speculate
about the possible effects of that
interest on Palestine and the refu-
gee problem in general. But any-
one who believes that our stake
! in the Middle East can be readily
forgotten alter the war need only
consider the problems of the Mid-
dle East Supply Center and the
extent of our role in meeting
I
; them.
The first point on the center's
economic program for the area is
increased self-sufficiency, not for
the region's economic good al-
though that too may be served,
but to reduce the demand on ship-
i ping space. As the proportion of
American ships and supplies
grows in lease-lend pool of the
United Nations, the problem of
'supplying the Middle East be-
! comes more and more an Ameri-
| can problem. What has been done
- so farjointly with the British,
of courseis to cut in half the
| tonnage needed during first six
months of 1942, so far as July-
| December period of this year is
I concerned. Next year, we intend
to reduce shipping needs still
1 further by sending more farm
machinery from the United
States, as well as trucks to facili-
, tate the exchange of products be-
tween nearby areas heretofore
almost isolated from one another.
| Incidentally, the shipping prob-
I lem of the United Nations all ov-
er the world, as well as in the
j immediate middle east area,
I stands to benefit immensely by
the reopening of the direct Medi-
|terranean route to these coun-
I tries. Since Italy entered the
I war, the long, round-about line
from our west coast through the
Pacific and Indian Oceans, the
Persian Gulf and the Red Sea
was almost the only route at our
disposal for the supply of these
countries. The reopened Medi-
terannean will enable us to di-
vert a great fleet of merchant
ships from this long haul to the
supplying of our invasion of Eu-
rope, the Russians' stand against
Hitler, the continued Chinese ef-
fort against Japan, and our own
fighters in the East Indies.
So next year offers brighter
prospects to the peoples of the
middle east. With the help of
American methods and stocks
they overcame the famine threat-
ened by the peak of the seven-
year locust plague during 1931-2
Now many of the hundreds of
thousands of tons of bread grains
and flour shipped from Canada
and the United States last year
can be raised at home, and the
freed shipping and supplies can
contribute directly to the winning
of the war on another front.
The way the center operates
now, local commitees work close-
ly with the governments con-
cerned. They submit their re-
quirements to the experts and
thence to the executive commit-
tee of the organization which as-
sembles and coordinates all the
needs into a single, integrated
Z^mA Ji118 Program can then
terms of shipping.
,kNo 2? ,need be surprised If
this method, and all it implies in
the way of economic and politi-
cal influence on the part of the
United States, continues after the
war. It seems especially likely
to last during that prolonged ar-
mistice favored by United Na-
tion leaders to permit the equit-
able thrashing out of world prob-
lems. And if it succeeds as well
as has it may last considerably
longer than that. y
captured Oran single-handed in a General Grant, was al
ways considered something of a shlemiehl by his family
and friends when it came to anything mechanical
Brooklyn, indeed, the tank ace was known as so clumsy that
he couldn't even leam to drive a car, and his assignment to
the tank corps was greeted with a mixture of horselaughs
and Bronx cheers by all who knew him Only his fiancee
Miss Rita Weinberg, had faith in him and kept insisting that
he would make good And now Kessel will most likely
go down in history as one of America's greatest war heroes
though few will remember that he is a Jew Just as lew
remember today that John Ordronaux, the famous privateer
captain of the War of 1812, was a Jew We are reminded
of Ordronaux by Fletcher Pratt, the military expert and com-
mentator, who calls our attention to the fact that the destroy-
er Ordronaux was launched at Quincy, Mass., on November
9th, and adds that to the best of his knowledge this is the
first U. S. naval vessel to be named after a Jewish officer.
FOR THE RECORD ....
Orchids to Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the New York
Times for his journalistic ethics After his recent blast
against Zionism and the Jewish Army project, he gave more
space than any other paper in New York to recent publidty
releases on these two themes As a matter of fact, while
the New York Times gave two columns to the Jewish Army
Committee's recent "Proclamation on the Moral Rights of the
Stateless and Palestinian Jews," to which 1521 prominent
Americans had affixed their names, the New York Yiddish
papers gave it no space at all Did you know that John
Howard Payne, composer of "Home, Sweet Home," served
as the American consul at Tunis just a hundred years ago?
Indeed, he held that post twice, and it was in Tunis that he
died during his second tenure of office But, then, Payne
was only half Jewish We mention this because we've just
remembered that it was at Tunis that Mordecai M. Noah was
serving as American consul when he was recalled from his
post by means of a letter that James Monroe, then Secretary
of State, sent him by Stephen Decatur to the effect that Presi-
den Madison had "deemed it expedient" to revoke Noah's
commission, on the grounds that his religion formed an ob-
stacle to the exercise of his consular functions.
THIS AND THAT ....
Laugh of the week: Harry Hershfield's cartoon showing
Addled Adolf talking into the telephone and saying: "Sorry,
Herr Rommel all I can send you is snowballs" Feminine

ready to take a job in a war plant Then there's a Mrs.

job being the training of dogs for military service ... All of

Joseph J. Rawlson, well known

These perfectly tailored slip
covers, made in the Rawlson man-

scheme or combination in the va-

Many Miami homes are today

formed the interior appearance
, from the "ordinary" into the "tru-.

Mr. Rawlson landed in New
York City in 1922 ... He entered
the decorating business in the
same year and came to Miami in i
1936 to organize his present busi-

Geneva (WNS)Pierre Laval,
Hitler's "gauleiter" of occupied
France, this week called for an
agreement with Nazi Germany
as "the sole guaranty for peace
in Europe" and charged that a
United Nations victory would
result in the domination of the
world by "Communists and
Jews."
"From what has happened in
North Africa we have discovered
the fate that awaits us tomorrow
if Roosevelt gets away with it,"
the Nazi puppet told the French
people. "We would have to sub-
mit to a domination of Commun-
ists and Jews."
Shortly afterwards, Laval
heard from the French people.
Jacques Doriot, France's No. 1
anti-Semite and an ardent pro-
Nazi, was severely beaten and
taken to a hospital after he had
demanded in a speech to the
Fascist National Popular party
that France declare war on the
United States and Britain be-
cause of the Allied occupation of
French North Africa.

A final warning has gone out
from the Office of Defense
Transportation to owners and op-
erators of commercial vehicles to
the effect that although they
feel they may be able to get
gasoline without a Certificate of
War Necessity, such is not the
case.
H. E. McDaniel, District Man-
ager, Division of Motor Trans-
port, Office of Defense Trans-
portation, stated that close co-
operation was in existence be-
tween ODT and OPA, and any
commercial vehicle owner who
attempts to evade the require-
ments of General Order ODT
No. 21 will find himself without
gas to operate and without the
privilege of purchasing tires or
parts.
It is felt, and hoped, that all
will cooperate willingly, but for
the minority, those who do not
desire to cooperate, machinery
has been set up whereby they
will be promptly dealt with.
Although the time limit for
securing a Certificate of War Ne-
cessity has been extended from
November 15 to December 1, it is
urgent that applications be sent
in to the District office in Jack-
sonville as early as possible so
that Certificates of War Necessity
may be delivered to owners of
vehicles by December 1.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27,
FROM THE
SWIVEL
CHAIR
William
L
Boxerman
The vlewa expressed br Mr. Boxer -
iMv are his own and do not nec-
essarily represent the opinion of
The Jewish Kloridian.
Great Service
The Dado County Defense
Council and the Miami Herald
are rendering a great service to
the community through their ru-
mor clinic The object of this :
undertaking, patterned after a j
similar enterprise in Boston, is
to nip false stories in the bud, |
thereby preventing the spread of;
fear, panic and divisive influ-1
ences among the American peo-
ple.
When we observe that the
clinic has dealt with a number
of rumors specifically Jewish in i
character, Jewish people of this
area concerned with the problem
of anti-Semitism have reason tor
be doubly gratified at its exist-
ence All can do much to en-
sure its continued success by re-
porting such "wives' tales" as
they hear, be they Jewish or non-
Jewish in nature.
Fantastic Tales
At times we have been tempt-
ed to set up a rumor clinic of our
own, to squelch some of the fan-
tastic tales that some citizens of
the Jewish persuasion circulate
within the Jewish community.
Fortunately, without the exist-
ence of a formal Jewish rumor
clinic sooner or later stories of
this kind usually reach our of-
fice We then have an oppor-
tunity to track them down be-
fore they cause not only embar-
rassment to some, but actual
harm to others.

Wings
Rumors have the wings of an
angel, and paraphrase the old
verse ... or to be modern we
might say, that they have the
traveling speed of the latest type
of plane ... If you are skeptical,
read the following story:
A few days ago word came to
us about a rumor that went as
follows: Owners of apartment
houses and homes on Miami
Beach are forcing their army ten-
ants to move in order to make
room for the winter vacationers |
who will pay higher rates .
There were other variations of
this theme, the principal one be-
ing that army and navy men
were finding it impossible to se-
cure living accommodations at
all, because the owners of apart-
ments were awaiting winter resi-
dents at higher rates.
Within three days after we
first heard the rumor, four peo-
ple in two communities remote
from Miami were repeating it.
In Chicago at least two individ-
uals passed the story along. At
the same time, in Washington one
man related that he had heard a
second person tell about being
pri'.sent at a meeting when two
army officers related how winter
residents returning to Miami
Beach from the north in vast |
numbers, rendered it impossible
for the military to find living
quarters.
The Facts
These tales are sheer nonsense.
Doubtless there are a few in-
stances of landlords holding out
for higher prices in the hope of
accommodating tourists This
is to be expected But there
is absolutely no evidence that
this exists on any scale worthy
of note M. B. Felt, manager
of the Miami Beach Apartment
House Association is authority
for the statement that the army
officially is so well satisfied with
the rental situation that no ceil-
ing has been set on rent in this
area.
As to the availability of ac-
commodations for army and wo-;
men, we quote the same source:
"There is no need to cry 'wolf at
the beach The beach has 938
apartment buildings with 10,000!
units and 3,000 of these are va-
cant Owners agreed to assign
20 per cent of the apartment
building capacity to men in the
armed forces and 1900 apartments
have been leased to these men
for as low as $50.00 a month for
efficiencies and $75.00 a month
for one-bedroom apartments .
South Beach apartments are
available at from $35.00 to $40.00
per month Shelter costs for
military men are cheaper than
in any other city in the United
States."
A Vicious Circle
All of this adds up to one
thing: Someone or some group
innocently or with malice afore-
thought started the rumor. Oth-
ers repeated it. Unless it is spiked
pronto, before long it will have
flown the length and breadth of
the land. We hope that it will be
stopped for the sake of the com-
munity generally and the Jewish
group specifically Since a ma-
jority of the apartment house
owners are Jewish, the false sto-
ries are bound to do us harm.
This column is not the place
for sermonizing and we do not
want to make a substitute for the
pulpit, but please, all of you, if
a divisive story reaches your
ears, tell it to the proper authori-
ties, not to your neighbor.

Sholem Lodge meetings are
held only once a month, but that
does not permit the officers and
committees to rest on their oars
between meetings. The work oi
B'nai B'rith and its appendages
must be carried on with vigor.
And so we find bee-hives of ac-
tivity, here and there, with the
objective a stronger and more
closely knit working organiza-
tion.
B'nai B'rith Captains
Since captains were appointed
in Sholem Lodge at the beginning
of this year, many changes have
been wrought in their ranks. The
reasons are many and varied, and
for the most part brought about
by war and defense activities.
In order to close the ranks
caused by departures from Mi-
ami, all captains on the new list
being promulgated by the B'nai
B'rith office will receive letters
requesting them to attend a din-
ner meeting, which is to be held
at the Palatial Restaurant, 265 N.
E. 2nd Street. Miami, on Decem-
ber 1. 1942, at 6:30 p. m. Those at-
tending will pay for their own
dinners. In these days it is more
than ever true that it is incum-
bent on us to give, rather than
receive.
Plans for the coming year will
be discussed and duties assigned
to the new captain personnel. All
members invited are urged to at-
tend this dinner and help solidify
the organization and replace the
men who can no longer be act-
ive in B'nai B'rith.
Hillel Affair for U. of M.
An affair is being planned for
the students of the University of
Miami, in furtherance of Hillel
work at that institution of learn-
ing. Scheduled to be held on
Thursay. December 10, 1942, it
will be under the supervision of
Rabbi Max Shapiro.
A cultural program, in conjunc-
tion with this student get-to-
gether is being planned, with re-
freshments to top off the event.
Refreshments will be served by
the Ladies Auxiliary.
New B. Z. Z. Chapter?
For some time there has been
a growing demand for the crea-
tion of another B.Z.B. Chapter
in Miami, which already has one
flourishing Chapter. Plans are
going forward for the creation of
such a Chapter which is good
news. The B.Z.B.'s have long es-
tablished their usefulness in ..,
projects and another chapter
widen the scope of their actij
ties. If, and when, this is ,
complished the B.Z.B.'s will ha
two chapters in Miami and
in Miami Beach, thus catching
with the A.Z.A.'s.
Ladies Auxiliary
We do not have any group 1
B'nai B'rith which does mrj
work and gets less notice ti-
the Ladies' Auxiliary. F
time to time we hear that
Ladies' Auxiliary has donate

wJewish Floridiaim w Osamas T/he JtewusUi HjinKlty H VOLUME 15—No. 47 MIAMI. FLORIDA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1942 PRICE 10 CE LEHMAN TO DIRECT RELIEF OF FREED PEOPLES Washington (WNS)—Governor Herbert H. Lehman, who is retiring after four terms as Governor of New York, has been appointed by President Roosevelt to direct the feeding, clothing and rehabilitation of nations freed from the Axis yoke by the United Nations. The Jewish Governor's assignment will be to formulate plans and determine policy for j the tremendous United Nations' I tasks of rebuilding the war-torn world after Fascism has been crushed. All of the United Na-1 tions will join in the task, it was, said, although the United States, j the wealthiest and the least damaged of the free countries, will probably make the greatest contribution. In addition to feeding, clothing and sheltering the starving millions of Europe, Asia and Africa, Mr. Lehman will be in charge of the Allied program to rebuild these countries industrially and agriculturally after the war. A start in this program has already been made. Last week President Roosevelt issued instructions to provide weapons, food and clothing to the armed forces and citizens of North African territories occupied by the United Nations. Among the many millions of homeless and starving people in Nazi-occupied Europe, there are several million Jews, now in concentration camps, labor gangs and ghettos, who will need aid in reconstructing their lives. Hundreds of thousand of Jewish refugees are scattered across the face of the earth, living, for the most part, under the direst circumstances. REFUGEE WINS COMMISSION IN ARMY MEDICAL CORPS New York (WNS) — Four months after he offered to volunteer as a private, Polish-born Dr. Leon Gottfried, 38, a refugee, was granted a first lieutenant's commission in the Medical Corps of the U. S. Army, because of his status as a co-belligerent. "I am proud to be accepted as an officer in the army, especially since I am a non-citizen. To be placed on an equal footing with American officers confirms what I have heard all my life and that is that America is the land of opportunity, regardless of one's race or creed," Lt. Gottfried stated when he received notice of his commission. He said his brother in England and his parents in Palestine have awaited this word with as much anxiety as he. NAZIS HOLD FRENCH JEWS AS HOSTAGE FOR AFRICANS Bll B'RITH AUX. CONFERS WITH JEWISH OVER J/. INTER A MERICAN COUNCIL TO MEET IN MEXICO IN 1943 New York (WNS)—A meeting of the Inter-American Jewish Council with the Participation of representatives of Jewish communities on the American continent will be held in Mexico in the spring, with the concurrence of the Mexican government. The announcement was made tins week by Dr. Stephen S. Wise, president of the American Jewish Congress and Chairman Of the Inter-American Jewish Council, and by Dr. Nahum Goldmann, chairman of the Administrative Committee of the World Jewish Congress, upon their return from a fortnight's visit to Mexico City. During their stay they were received by the Mexican Foreign Minister, Senor Padilla, who assured the representatives of the Congress that the session of the InterAmerican Jewish Council would be welcomed. Washington (WNS) — Jewish refugees from Nazi oppression are not affected by the law passed by the Brazilian government March 11, 1942 assessing nationals of the Axis powers for damage caused to Brazilian property by acts of aggression on the part of the niother countries. Chicago (WNS)—War bond sales of over $7,000,000, production of 750.000 surgical dressings and 100.000 sewn and knitted garments for the Red Cross and the distribution of 85.000 comfort kits for service men will be among the war activities reported to the two-day annual meeting of the Women's Supreme Council of B'nai B'rith at the Palmer House. in Chicago. December 1 and 2. Other reports to he presented to the first war-time session of the national coordinating agency of the 50.000 B nai B'rith women and girls will deal with blood donors, contributions to war relief agencies, personal service and home hospitality to service men. civilian defense participation, furnishing of company day rooms at Army camps. Red Cross cooperation and salvage campaigns. Plans for encouraging Jewish women not now employed to enter the labor market as a contribution toward solving the war manpower shortage, sponsorship of and participation in community projects for the provision of increased neighborhood nursing facilities for children of working women and the post-war role of American women are among the important subjects to be taken up during an appraisal of tne war service record of the B'nai B nth women since Pearl Harbor. SON IS KILLED IN ACTION; FATHER WANTS TO ENLIST New York (WNS)—State Senator Lazarus Joseph, whose 22 year old son. Captain Jacob Joseph of the United States Marines was killed in action at Guadacanal on Oct. 22, expressed determination this week to join the Marines. The Jewish legislator is 50 years old. Mr. Joseph was notified of his sons death in a wire from General Thomas Holcomb. Marine Corps commandant. The Jewish State Senator, who had been for some time trying to get into the Marines, said: "I am now more anxious than ever to get into service Captain Joseph was believed to be the youngest captain in the Marine Corps. London ,WNS)—Lieut. Dwight D. Eisenhower, American commanding officer in French North Africa, has appointed Jewish leaders in Algeria and Morocco to special commissions established by American military authorities to devise a formula for the immediate abogation of all anti Jewish laws throughout French North Africa, it was reported here this week. The reports said that General Eisenhower had conferred at great length with the Jewish leaders on the best methods of restoring complete equality and independence to the Jews in North Africa. As reported in WNS dispatches last week, several cities in Algeria, principally Algiers, have already declared anti-Jewish legislation in those cities null and void, but American military authorities plan to announce a common procedure for the repeal of anti-Jewish laws for all of French North Africa. Jewish leaders in Algeria and Morocco have advised the Jews not to buy back their shops and enterprises which were confiscated by the pro-Nazi Vichy officials and turned over to "Aryan" managers and coordinators. Shortly after American troops landed in the French African colonies the "Aryan" proprietors "offered" to sell the confiscated shops at reduced prices to their former Jewish owners. It was expected that official regulations governing the repeal of all anti-Jewish statutes and the return to their rightful owners of all confiscated properties will be announced shortly. It was indicated that wherever possible Jews would be compensated for material damages incurred as a result of the Vichy antiJewish decrees. President Roosevelt's announcement in Washington that he had requested abrogation of all Naziinspired decrees and laws in North Africa and the liberation of anti-Nazi prisoners was seen as strengthening the hands of Gen. Eisenhower, who sever;.i days before had assured Jewish leaders that equal civil and political rights would be restored to them. The American commanding officer had extended assurances also that the presence in North Africa of Admiral Darlan. Vichy's former vice-premier, would in no way interfere with the contemplated abrogation of the antiJewish laws. Many Jewish leaders had at first been dismayed by the treatment accorded the erstwhile pro-Nazi collaborationist by the Allied authorities. Berne (WNS) — The puppet French government announced this week that Jews in France will be interned as hostages to 1 insure the safety of Nazi and Vichy officials held by American military authorities in French North Africa. Speaking over the Paris radio, a Laval aide stated: "We must defend all French nationals who are exposed today in North Africa to the brutalities of the English and the Americans and to the vindictiveness of 1sreal. There are still more Jews in France. They should become the best guarantors of security for the French national revolutionaries who are at present unable to return from our colonies." U.S. II.. ..". II OF HAPPY AT VOIDING OF AFRICAN L POLISH JEWS BUOYED BY ALLIED SUCCESS IN AFRICA London (WNS)—Announcement that all existing anti-Jewish laws in French North Africa would be abrogated and that equal civil and political rights would be restored to the more than 300.000 Jews there, was greeted with cheers at a special meeting here of the British Board of Jewish Deputies. Prof. Selig Brodetsky. president of the board, expressed thi hope that the thousands of European Jewish refugees held in Nazi concentration camps and in slave labor camps in North Africa would be freed with other anti-Nazi prisoners, in accordance with President Rooseevlt's announcement. Prof. Brodetsky stated that while the position of the thousands of Jews in what was formerly unoccupied France had worsened as a result of the complete Nazi occupation of France, the Allied occupation of North Africa had resulted in the liberation of the Jews there and in the removal of the threat to the Jewish community in Palestine. He added that the prompt abrogation of the anti-Jewish laws in North Africa pointed up the need for the Jews to have their post-war demands ready for submission to the United Nations. New York (WNS)—President Roosevelt's announcement that he had requested the abrof of all laws and decrees in; I by Nazi ideologists in F North Africa was welcomec : week "as the beginning o. realization of the ideals of the great Atlantic Charter" by the General Jewish Council. A message expressing gratification over the speedy abrogation of the Nazi-inspired laws, which has resulted in the restoration of equal civil and political rights to the 110,000 Jews in Algeria and the 160,000 Jews in French Morocco, was sent to Mr. Roosevelt by Edgar J. Kaufmann of Pittsburgh, chairman of the General Jewish Council. Mr. Kaufmann's message to the White House said: "The General Jewish Council on behalf ot its constituent member agencies —the American Jewish Committee, the B'nai B'rith and the Jewish Labor Committee—joins all freedom-loving people the world over in expressing gratification upon the promptness of your action regarding the abrogation of all laws and decrees inspired by the Nazi government or Nazi ideologists in Northern Africa, and the liberation of all persons who have been in oned because of their oppo. l to Nazism. "This action will be reg; 1 by the entire civilized wor the beginning of the realization of the ideals of the great Atlantic Charter which we all hope will soon be ushered in victoriously by the Allied armies of liberation."

Hitherto, i Vichy s anti-Jewish laws in ef| feet in the occupied area. PAGE SEVEN Geneva (WNS)—Pierre Laval, Hitler's "gauleiter" of occupied France, this week called for an agreement with Nazi Germany as "the sole guaranty for peace in Europe" and charged that a United Nations victory would result in the domination of the world by "Communists and Jews." "From what has happened in North Africa we have discovered the fate that awaits us tomorrow if Roosevelt gets away with it," the Nazi puppet told the French people. "We would have to submit to a domination of Communists and Jews." Shortly afterwards, Laval heard from the French people. Jacques Doriot, France's No. 1 anti-Semite and an ardent proNazi, was severely beaten and taken to a hospital after he had demanded in a speech to the Fascist National Popular party that France declare war on the United States and Britain because of the Allied occupation of French North Africa. Another report received here stated that Hitler had instructed A STATEMENT November 23rd, 1942 An erroneous statement reParding a "Kosher Supervising Group" has appeared several times in the local English daily press during the past week.

It was his own funeral service. At a meeting of Beth Sholom Center on Thursday night, Nov. 19th, Dr. Ellis, as chairman of the religious committee, had completed his report and sat down with the applause of of the members ringing in his ears.

* J> PAGE EIGHT +Jewls* HcrkUan FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27, FROM THE SWIVEL CHAIR William L Boxerman The vlewa expressed br Mr. Boxer iMv are his own and do not necessarily represent the opinion of The Jewish Kloridian. Great Service The Dado County Defense Council and the Miami Herald are rendering a great service to the community through their rumor clinic The object of this : undertaking, patterned after a j similar enterprise in Boston, is to nip false stories in the bud, | thereby preventing the spread of; fear, panic and divisive influ-1 ences among the American people. When we observe that the clinic has dealt with a number of rumors specifically Jewish in i character, Jewish people of this area concerned with the problem of anti-Semitism have reason tor be doubly gratified at its existence All can do much to ensure its continued success by reporting such "wives' tales" as they hear, be they Jewish or nonJewish in nature. Fantastic Tales At times we have been tempted to set up a rumor clinic of our own, to squelch some of the fantastic tales that some citizens of the Jewish persuasion circulate within the Jewish community. Fortunately, without the existence of a formal Jewish rumor clinic sooner or later stories of this kind usually reach our office We then have an opportunity to track them down before they cause not only embarrassment to some, but actual harm to others. REAL ESTATE—MIAMI BEACH Miami Beach Real Estate SALES— LEASES B. E. BRONSTON REALTOR "Trustworthy Service" 60S Lincoln Road Ph. 5-5868 Wings Rumors have the wings of an angel, and paraphrase the old verse ... or to be modern we might say, that they have the traveling speed of the latest type of plane ... If you are skeptical, read the following story: A few days ago word came to us about a rumor that went as follows: Owners of apartment houses and homes on Miami Beach are forcing their army tenants to move in order to make room for the winter vacationers | who will pay higher rates There were other variations of this theme, the principal one being that army and navy men were finding it impossible to secure living accommodations at all, because the owners of apartments were awaiting winter residents at higher rates. Within three days after we first heard the rumor, four people in two communities remote from Miami were repeating it. In Chicago at least two individuals passed the story along. At the same time, in Washington one man related that he had heard a second person tell about being pri'.sent at a meeting when two army officers related how winter residents returning to Miami Beach from the north in vast | numbers, rendered it impossible for the military to find living quarters. The Facts These tales are sheer nonsense. Doubtless there are a few instances of landlords holding out for higher prices in the hope of accommodating tourists This is to be expected But there is absolutely no evidence that this exists on any scale worthy of note M. B. Felt, manager of the Miami Beach Apartment House Association is authority for the statement that the army officially is so well satisfied with the rental situation that no ceiling has been set on rent in this area. As to the availability of accommodations for army and wo-; men, we quote the same source: "There is no need to cry 'wolf at the beach The beach has 938 apartment buildings with 10,000! units and 3,000 of these are vacant Owners agreed to assign 20 per cent of the apartment building capacity to men in the armed forces and 1900 apartments have been leased to these men for as low as $50.00 a month for efficiencies and $75.00 a month for one-bedroom apartments South Beach apartments are available at from $35.00 to $40.00 per month Shelter costs for military men are cheaper than in any other city in the United States." A Vicious Circle All of this adds up to one thing: Someone or some group innocently or with malice aforethought started the rumor. Others repeated it. Unless it is spiked pronto, before long it will have flown the length and breadth of the land. We hope that it will be stopped for the sake of the community generally and the Jewish group specifically Since a majority of the apartment house owners are Jewish, the false stories are bound to do us harm. This column is not the place for sermonizing and we do not want to make a substitute for the pulpit, but please, all of you, if a divisive story reaches your ears, tell it to the proper authorities, not to your neighbor.

The work oi B'nai B'rith and its appendages must be carried on with vigor. And so we find bee-hives of activity, here and there, with the objective a stronger and more closely knit working organization. B'nai B'rith Captains Since captains were appointed in Sholem Lodge at the beginning of this year, many changes have been wrought in their ranks. The reasons are many and varied, and for the most part brought about by war and defense activities. In order to close the ranks caused by departures from Miami, all captains on the new list being promulgated by the B'nai B'rith office will receive letters requesting them to attend a dinner meeting, which is to be held at the Palatial Restaurant, 265 N. E. 2nd Street. Miami, on December 1. 1942, at 6:30 p. m. Those attending will pay for their own dinners. In these days it is more than ever true that it is incumbent on us to give, rather than receive. Plans for the coming year will be discussed and duties assigned to the new captain personnel. All members invited are urged to attend this dinner and help solidify the organization and replace the men who can no longer be active in B'nai B'rith. Hillel Affair for U. of M. An affair is being planned for the students of the University of Miami, in furtherance of Hillel work at that institution of learning. Scheduled to be held on Thursay. December 10, 1942, it will be under the supervision of Rabbi Max Shapiro. A cultural program, in conjunction with this student get-together is being planned, with refreshments to top off the event. Refreshments will be served by the Ladies Auxiliary. New B. Z. Z. Chapter? For some time there has been a growing demand for the creation of another B.Z.B. Chapter in Miami, which already has one flourishing Chapter. Plans are going forward for the creation of such a Chapter which is good news. The B.Z.B.'s have long established their usefulness in .., projects and another chapter „ widen the scope of their actij ties. If, and when, this is complished the B.Z.B.'s will ha two chapters in Miami and in Miami Beach, thus catching with the A.Z.A.'s. Ladies Auxiliary We do not have any group 1 B'nai B'rith which does mrj work and gets less notice tithe Ladies' Auxiliary. F time to time we hear that Ladies' Auxiliary has donate check for this, that and 11.. er thing. More often than n\ a check has come from til group to Sholem Lodge, and livered to its ultimate source Sholem Lodge. That is LoyaJ to the Lodge that should not unnoticed.

Woman's place may be in kitchen, according to some—al certainly they have "done timf in the kitchen to provide the freshments which were so avid gobbled up by the men—but forte is in the field. And now the Ladies' Auxilia is in the field for Uncle Sam the home front. They are M^ ute Women, and their duties not confined to the sale of Stamps and War Bonds, but embrace any task that requirj attention and performance. Odds and Ends Just a heading which is to as refresher to call your attc tion to the fact that because do not hammer away every cd umn you are not to neglect t\ collection of keys for the scr drive and scrap metal of great] dimensions.

University of Georgia, at Athens Dr. Jerome Berke has been commissioned a lieutenant junior grade, in the naval reserve dental corps ... He previously had been practicing in Miami for the last year and a half. Record for the Future We have commented once before upon the value of keeping records for the future: "The presentation of plaques or service flags and the tribute paid to men in the service through a community roll of honor are concrete means of counteracting the lies whispered about Jews not joining the service Wherever possible we must make their records of our war participation as enduring as possible." For this reason we were especially gratified to note and give proper publicity to the plaque dedicated by the Beth Jacob congregation last week Not only was the ceremony itself a source of inspiration and satisfaction to the parents of the men in service, but the plaque itself, a beautiful physical symbol of Jewish dedication to American ideals, will remain as a memorial for years to come. We venture to say, in the light of present conditions, that ere long many others will be added to the initial 47 names recorded as members of the congregation who have gone forth to serve their country in its great hour of need. The Service League of the congregation, which is responsible for the plaque, is to be congratulated upon its efforts. ELEVENTH ANNUAL I M I. A.

FLA., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1942 KISLEV, 18, 5703 VOLUME 15 NUMBER 47 Freedom Follows The Flag America and the whole civilized world were gladdened with the news of the surprise landing of American forces in North Africa but to probably no people was this guite as good news as to the Jews of North Africa. There are 330,000 of them—one of the most colorful and most ancient of Jewish communities in the world. Some historians are of the belief that even in the time of the first Temple there was a Jewish community in North Africa. It was highly dramatic that this ancient Je *lri community which existed yet when the kirjcr' sat on the throne of Israel and Hebrew p*' ?ts preached democracy, should have oeen rescued by the troops of the youngest of lands—the land which is the exemplar of democracy today. The White House and the State Department have indicated that the monstrous Nuremberg anti-Jewish laws which have become part of the code of every land coming under the Axis shadow is to be abrogated. The foul code which has reduced Jews in great parts of the world to a condition far below that of the slavehas received its first great setback. Some day the full story of the accomplishment of this momunental act of liberation will be told, when the deeds of the President, of General Eisenhower, of Secretary Hull and Assistant Secretary of State Berle have been pieced together from memoirs and diaries, autobiographies and other sources of historical data. Those charged with official authority in America today will be long remembered in Jewish history. In this connection, it will not be amiss to point out that the State Department in particular is lodged with an enormous responsibility and at the same time a supreme opportunity. None have tasted of the bitter dregs of Nazism as the Jews, yet lacking a geographical base, they are in the position of the least, insofar as undoing the wrong is concerned. It is for this reason that the Jews of the world, not only the Jews of America, look to the American government, not for special attention, but rather for seeing to it that simple justice is done. America, more than any other land, formed by many strains and all races, has never been a land in the simple sense of geography alone. When it was bom, it dedicated itself to a principle, that "all men are created equal." To go back on this principle, would be to cease to be America. Happily, Washington has shown that we are not going back on it—that we have resolved indeed that no treasure is too high to pay for its realization.

CAPITAL LETTER By CHARLES BENSON threat events of the past week in North Africa could not tiei? overshadowing the appointm3i;: of Frederick Winant as Chfi'—an of the executive committe of the Middle East Supply Center. Yet the latter event was by no means so minor as it may seem by contrast. The Middle East Supply Center is charged with meeting the nonmilitary needs of an area as large as the United States and a population of almost 80.000.000— among them at least 750.000 Jews. This figure includes the peoples of Egypt. Iran, Iraq. Syria, Lebanon. Trans-Jordan. Saudi Arabia. Ethiopia. Palestine. Sudan, Malta, Cyprus, Aden, British Somaliland, Eritrea and occupied Italian lands in Africa. It does not include the thousands of refugees from Poland who have fourcd through the Caucasus into ran and thence to the east eoast of Africa. But included or not. they are being fed and supplied. Mr. Winant is the brother of John G. Winant, our Lincolnesque ambassador to Great Britain. He has served his country in a number of delicate jobs, including that of liaison man between the State Department and the Lend-Lease Administration. Since August, he has been in the Middle East on supply work. His five-man committee—three • Britishers and two American— f operates the supply center as part cf ,uO Middle Eastern War Council 'll? latter body has of course jeen run by the British. Bu* DO /. with North Africa and tht die East about to become a single theatre of operations by the elimination of Marshal Rommel and his Africa Corps, it seems likely that our assumption of a coordinate role in the handling of supplies will be followed by our taking the same position in military matters along the whole line from Gibraltar to the Indian border. In any case, the great amounts of supplies reaching the Middle East from the United States stand as an assurI nee that our interest in the area will continue to be a substanial one. both now and at the peace table. It does little good to speculate about the possible effects of that interest on Palestine and the refugee problem in general. But anyone who believes that our stake in the Middle East can be readily forgotten alter the war need only consider the problems of the Middle East Supply Center and the extent of our role in meeting I ; them. The first point on the center's economic program for the area is increased self-sufficiency, not for the region's economic good although that too may be served, but to reduce the demand on shipi ping space. As the proportion of American ships and supplies grows in lease-lend pool of the • United Nations, the problem of 'supplying the Middle East be! comes more and more an Ameri| can problem. What has been done so far—jointly with the British, of course—is to cut in half the | tonnage needed during first six months of 1942, so far as July| December period of this year is I concerned. Next year, we intend to reduce shipping needs still 1 further by sending more farm machinery from the United States, as well as trucks to facili, tate the exchange of products between nearby areas heretofore almost isolated from one another. | Incidentally, the shipping probI lem of the United Nations all over the world, as well as in the j immediate middle east area, I stands to benefit immensely by the reopening of the direct Medi|terranean route to these counI tries. Since Italy entered the I war, the long, round-about line from our west coast through the Pacific and Indian Oceans, the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea was almost the only route at our disposal for the supply of these countries. The reopened Mediterannean will enable us to divert a great fleet of merchant ships from this long haul to the supplying of our invasion of Europe, the Russians' stand against Hitler, the continued Chinese effort against Japan, and our own fighters in the East Indies. So next year offers brighter prospects to the peoples of the middle east. With the help of American methods and stocks they overcame the famine threatened by the peak of the sevenyear locust plague during 1931-2 Now many of the hundreds of thousands of tons of bread grains and flour shipped from Canada and the United States last year can be raised at home, and the freed shipping and supplies can contribute directly to the winning of the war on another front. The way the center operates now, local commitees work closely with the governments concerned. They submit their requirements to the experts and thence to the executive committee of the organization which assembles and coordinates all the needs into a single, integrated Z^ m A Ji 118 Program can then terms of shipping. ,K NO 2? need be surprised If this method, and all it implies in the way of economic and political influence on the part of the United States, continues after the war. It seems especially likely to last during that prolonged armistice favored by United Nation leaders to permit the equitable thrashing out of world problems. And if it succeeds as well as has it may last considerably longer than that. y captured Oran single-handed in a General Grant, was al ways considered something of a shlemiehl by his family and friends when it came to anything mechanical Brooklyn, indeed, the tank ace was known as so clumsy that he couldn't even leam to drive a car, and his assignment to the tank corps was greeted with a mixture of horselaughs and Bronx cheers by all who knew him Only his fiancee Miss Rita Weinberg, had faith in him and kept insisting that he would make good And now Kessel will most likely go down in history as one of America's greatest war heroes though few will remember that he is a Jew Just as lew remember today that John Ordronaux, the famous privateer captain of the War of 1812, was a Jew We are reminded of Ordronaux by Fletcher Pratt, the military expert and commentator, who calls our attention to the fact that the destroyer Ordronaux was launched at Quincy, Mass., on November 9th, and adds that to the best of his knowledge this is the first U. S. naval vessel to be named after a Jewish officer. FOR THE RECORD .... Orchids to Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the New York Times for his journalistic ethics After his recent blast against Zionism and the Jewish Army project, he gave more space than any other paper in New York to recent publidty releases on these two themes As a matter of fact, while the New York Times gave two columns to the Jewish Army Committee's recent "Proclamation on the Moral Rights of the Stateless and Palestinian Jews," to which 1521 prominent Americans had affixed their names, the New York Yiddish papers gave it no space at all Did you know that John Howard Payne, composer of "Home, Sweet Home," served as the American consul at Tunis just a hundred years ago? Indeed, he held that post twice, and it was in Tunis that he died during his second tenure of office But, then, Payne was only half Jewish We mention this because we've just remembered that it was at Tunis that Mordecai M. Noah was serving as American consul when he was recalled from his post by means of a letter that James Monroe, then Secretary of State, sent him by Stephen Decatur to the effect that Presiden Madison had "deemed it expedient" to revoke Noah's commission, on the grounds that his religion formed an obstacle to the exercise of his consular functions.
