more than M outstanding busi-
ness and professional men in the
community that are serving as
lieutenants. Herman Wall and
Jake Fait are co-chairmen of the
affairs scheduled for
I and their prospects are
for Mai t and 14 with elabo-
rate programs and outstanding
speakers.
In view of the present war
conditions, necessitating taking
into consideration transportation
and rationing, the Federation Or-
ganization was streamlined to
meet these existing conditions.
Plans include small gatherings of
the various groups at ideally lo-
cated meeting places where com
munm-minded citizenry will be
told the part the Federation plays
in the scheme of world events and
Ha important dominent role in the
local sphere.
Federation officers have adopt-
ed a policy which eliminates all
pressure on the many contribu-
tors. We feel, they stated, that
an intelligent presentation of our
case to me people as has been
accomplished by our speakers'
division, under the chairmanship
f Rabbi Colman A. Zwitman, is
all that Will be necessary. This
continued presentation, together
with a wholehearted cooperation
af the community, cannot help
but make the drive a success.
"Full speed ahead" is the
order from Stanley C. Mey-
ra, Chairman of 1943 Greater
diami Jewish Federation Vic-
tory Anneal. Completing more
Ike months of prelimi-
- Bling. giving the drive

achieved, the chairman stated

March 11 to 31 has been set
as the dates for the campaign.
The drive will be officially opened
with a workers' mass meeting
the Saturday evening preceding.
A prominent nationally-known
apoarrr is expected to be present
to emphasize further the impor-
tance of the success of the all-
out undertaking by rendering a

SYNAGOGUES OBSERVE DAY
OF PRAYER FOR RUSSIANS
London (WNS) Synagogues
throughout England joined with
all other British churches in ob-
serving a day of prayer for Rus-
sia last week-end. Instructions
for Jewish participation in the
nation-wide prayer day for the
Soviet forces were issued by
Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz, who
said:
"The sons and daughters of
English Jewry share the friendly,
feelings for the Russian people.
The Nazi fiends are daily exter-
minating thousands of our breth-
ren. In all civilized lands there
is a universal chorus of sympathy
for the doomed victims, but so
far there is well nigh universal
inaction. It is the nope of all
good men that victory of the
Soviet armies will strengthen
the forces of liberalism and hu-
manity which are strangely para-
lyzed with fatal results for mul-
titudes of Jewish men and
women.

RED CROSS SABBATH TO BE
OBSERVED BY RELIGIOUS
ORDERS THROUGHOUT U. S.
Washington, D. CThis week-
end (Feb. 26-27) is being observed
as Red Cross Sabbath in temples
and synagogues throughout the
country. Together with Red
Cross Sunday on Feb. 28 in Prote-
stant and Catholic churches, this
religious demonstration will mark
the opening of the American Red
Cross 1943 War Fund appeal for
$125,000,000.
Designated by the Synagogue
Council of America, Red Cross
Sabbath will find Jewish commu-
nities renewing their historic loy-
alty to the American Red Cross.
With many Jewish women in Red
Cross volunteer special services.
Red Cross uniforms are expected
during Friday evening or Satur-
day morning services.
The response to the recent ap-
peal by rabbis by Dr. Israel Gold-
stein, president of the Synagogue
Council of America, and Chair-
man Norman H. Davis of the
American Red Cross, is consider-
abje, according to Dr. Goldstein.
Many rabbis are devoting ser-
mons to the work of mercy per-
formed by the Red Cross, and
urging their congregations to con-
tribute liberally to the Red Cross
1943 War Fund in their commu-
nities.

BOMBER NAMED
AFTER SCI. LEVIN
KILLED IN PACIFIC
New York (INS) Sergeant
Meyer Levin, America's ace
bombardier, who sank the Japa-
nese battleship Ha run a and a
large Japanese passenger-cargo
ship, will no longer fly in the
service of his country but one
and perhaps two giant bombers,
bearing Sergeant Levin's name,
will complete the job so gallantly
started by the 26-year-old Ameri-
can Jewish hero.
Sergeant Levin, who was deco-
rated with the Distinguished
Service Cross, the Silver Star
and the Oak Leaf Cluster, was
killed on Jan. 7 when his bomber
crashed into the sea during a
storm 40 miles south of Port
Moresby while returning from its
shadowing of a Japanese convoy-
The young Brooklyn hero be-
came a national figure on Dec.
10, 1941, when, as bombardier in
Capt. Colin Kelly's plane, he
avenged the death of many of his
comrades at Pearl Harbor three
days earlier by sending the Ha
runa to the bottom of the Pa-
cific. He participated in the bat-
tles of Java and the Coral Sea
and took part in more than 50
missions against Japanese base?
at Rabaul. Lae, Salamaua and in
the Solomons. During the Coral
Sea battle he sank a 12,000-ton
Japanese cargo vessel.
His mother was recovering from
an operation when the news came.

"Every person should register
for War Ration Book 2, whether
he needs it at present or not." the
chairman of the local War Price
and Rationing Board cautioned
residents of Dade County today.
"Reports to the rationing board
indicate that farmers who raise
and can their own fruits and veg-
etables and meats are under the
impression that they will not
need to register for the point ra-
tion book. On the contrary, Un-
cle Sam wants every man, woman
and child in the United States to
have a ration book, since the ra-
tioning program may include not
only its present phases, but other
possible developments in the fu-
ture.
MI want to emphasize the ne-
cessity for every person, whether
in the town or county, whether
he preserves his own food or re-
lies on the corner grocery, to reg-
ister for War Ration Book 2 dur-
ing the six-day period from Feb.
22 through Feb. 27," he said.
"At the same time" he further
advised, "persons who eat their
meals in restaurants or other pub-
lic eating places, who do not at
present need War Ration Book
2, should register for weir point
books without fail."

London (WNS)Recent major
Nazi defeats in Soviet Russia was
God's punishment for the in-
human Nazi treatment of the
Jewish people, Dr. Golen, a Cath-
olic bishpp, declared in his ser-
mon in a Muenster church, ac-
cording to information received
here this week.
Dr. Golen was reported to have
made this statement during the
three-day mourning period pro-
claimed by the Nazis in memory
of the German 6th Army, which
was destroyed by the Russians at
Stalingrad.
The report quoted the German
bishop as stating that he was
shocked by the reports of the
Nazi atrocities against the peoples
of the occupied countries, espe-
cially the Jews. He added that
the death of tens of thousands
of German soldiers in Russia was
God's punishment for these atro-
cities.

Saddening the hearts of many Floridians this week, old-timers as
well as recent settlers, was the passing away of Louis Wolfson,
pioneer Floridian and resident of Miami since 1916. He was the
father of Mitchell Wolfson of this city, Miami Beach city council-
man and head of Wometco Theaters.. Pictured above is a cut from
the Jewish Floridian files of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Wolfson taken on
the occasion of their golden wedding anniversary in 1937. Mrs.
Wolfson passed away a year ago.

ADAR I. 21. 5793 ,
VOLUME 16 NUMBER9
LENDAHAND
It's very strange and truly unexplainable
how in this super-intelligent world of ours, how
inconsistent we humans are. A vastly un-
proved people modernized beyond wildest
imaginations over our former generations and
ancestors, we cue supposed to have our entire
bemgs down to a science, yet, if we would
only look about us, we would see how incon-
sistent we are.
m our personal professions, businesses, ana
individual enterprises, we maintain secretaries,
clerks, bookkeepers, accountants and even sta-
tisticians. Why?to sum it up in simple brief
phraseology, it is to know for certain periods
cmd at all times just where we stand. To know
what we're doing, how we're progessing and
to repeatwhere we stand.
Yet. we find today in this, World War II.
hundreds of our boys in the service and no
accurate and permanent up-to-date record of
this participation. The importance of this fac-
tual evidence is of unestimable value. With
it, we will know what we are doing. When
that period of time will come and with it, Vic-
tory, we will know from first-hand statistical
information our share in it. Should it be neces-
sary, it will be available for concrete evidence
as to where we stood. Many other important
reasons can be enumerated. Some are better
not put in print. Suffice to say leaders all over
the world deem it important enough to spend
tireless and endless hours on this thankless
project They point out the old adage, "In
numbers, there is strength."
The Greater Miami Army-Navy Committee,
in cooperation with the Jewish Welfare Board's
Servicemen's activities, has revised and reju-
venated its local permanent War Records Com-
mittee with the appointment ot Nat Roth as
chairman. A go-getter, he has mapped out a
program to obtain and keep up-to-date this sta-
tistical data. There is endless details attached
to this big job. It requires the cooperation of
the entire community. Parents, relatives and
friends of our local boys in service are urged
to pitch in and help do this job. Without them,
it is nigh impossible.
Starting next week, there will appear in the
Jewish Floridian a coupon. We ask that any-
one having information covering the questions.
to please clip and forward. Send in your items
of the boys in service. It is interesting news
and through these items end your assistance,
the Army-Navy Committee will accomplish a
necessary tasknecessary for the benefit of
all of us.
THE PALESTINE SITUATION
From London it was reported this week
that the British government bad begun con-
versations with the Jews and with the Arabs
simultaneously on the Palestine question.
Some of the official timidity with dealing witii
this question has disappeared, it is explained,
because the British are now not so worried
about the Arabs. There is no danger of the
Arabs tying up with the Axis any more. The
British can be outspoken if they wish.
But will they wish and just how far are they
prepared to go to meet Zionist demands, that
is the question.
It is a question that became more discon-
certing to Zionists this week with the announce-
ment of the resignation of Emanuel Neumann
from the American Emergency Committee for
Zionist Affairs. Mr. Neumann, in giving his
reasons for his resignation, points to a very dis-
tressing situation existing in that body, which
is very important at this juncture, because it
is the diplomatic arm of the Zionist movement.
According to this statement, this committee is
marked by "recurrent factional and personal
differences, vacillation in policy and action,
absence of centralized administrative direction,
and budgets wholly incommensurate with the
immensity of the tasks."
This is a very serious charge, if it is true.
Mr. Neumann further goes on to point out that
it prevails at a time when "there is no ground
for undue optimism regarding the policital
situation. The British administration attitude in
Jerusalem, he declares, is hopeless, in London,
it is bad, in Washington, it is unsatisfactory."
With the American landing in North Af-
rica, the United States has become a great
Moslem power, he points out, but already our
official quarters seem to be orienting toward
an Arab rather than to a Jewish slant.
Zionists must realize, too, that they have no
Brandeis to lead them and many another of
their important leaders have gone.
Here is a crisis which can only be met by
the Zionists bestirring themselves to the utmost.
DONT TALK
About rumors and harmful stories: Don't
repeat storiesWhich stir up racial discussion.
Inimical to our friendship with or in criticism
of our allies. Of the enemy's prowess. Of
our inefficiencies or shortcomings. About a
shortage of or poor quality of our equipment.
About weather: Don't pass on information
of weather conditions other than which appears
in your local newspaper.

Funeral services were con-

Funeral Home for Samuel Raxin,
57, who died suddenly Monday
night at his home after a brief
illness. Rabbi Moses Mescheloff
officiated.
Raxin came here six years ago
from Brooklyn, N. Y., and was
a painter and decorator. He was
a member of the Workmen's
Circle, B'nai B'rith, and Painters'
Union local 365. He is survived
by his widow, Mrs. Anna Raxin,
Miami; one daughter, Mrs. Jose-
phine Adler, Miami; one son, Ar-

Unveiling of a monument to
Harry Michel will take place Sun-
day, Feb. 28, at 2 p. m. in the
Jewish section of Woodlawn

Services will be under the direc-
tion of Emanuel Gordon.
Beginning Feb. 28, 1943. the
Rummage Store at 167 N. W.
Fifth Street, Miami, will be under
new management. The operation
of this store, for charitable pur-
poses, has been turned over to
Sholem Lodge B'nai B'rith. The
Ladies Auxiliary will cooperate
with Sholem Lodge.
The conditions under which
Sholem Lodge is to undertake
the management are these:
Twenty-five per cent of the net
proceeds will go into the Baron
de Hirsch Fund; all profits that
thereafter accrue are to be allo-
cated for charitable and welfare
uses. Sholem Lodge will set apart
a separate fund, and all profits
from the Rummage Store will be
ear-marked for that fund.
For the uninformed, the Rum-
mage Store deals in used cloth-
ing and general merchandise. Do-
nations of such articles as are no
longer used by families should
be donated to the Rummage
Storeshoes, clothing, shirts, etc.
All articles received are cleaned,
mended, repaired and in a con-
dition that satisfies sanitary
standards are offered for sale.
It is to be hoped that the com-
munity will cooperate in the do-
nation of merchandise that can
be put in shape for resale as
"used" and "second-hand" clothes
and articles. Great effort will
have to be expended in the man-
agement and operation of this
businessfor it is a business
but the purpose is to raise money
to be wisely distributed. Lest
there be some misunderstanding,
no profit of any kind or nature
accrues to Sholem Lodge or the
Ladies Auxiliary-
Membership Campaign
The "drive" has passed the
half-way mark, with 59 applica-
tions received to date. Nat Roth
is so far in front, having proposed
about 25 per cent of the total to
date, that there is little likeli-
hood that he will be headed. But
the race for second place will
be interesting. Full scores will
be supplied for the next column.
Some interesting facts have
developed in the "drive." Isi-
dore Cohen, one of the pioneers
of Miami, proposes his son. Corp.
Edward Cohen, while already in
the service Lieut. Robert
Lewin, stationed at Boca Raton,
a resident of Miami, was pro
posed by Albert Green, while in
the service Gustav Taussig
acknowledges his acceptance into
Sholem Lodge with thanks. A
charter member of Warheit Lodge
in Vienna, he knows "by experi-
ence that only high cultured,
good Jews" are admitted to B'nai
B'rith Lodges Paul Giller
joins not only Sholem Lodge, but
the Zionist organization, being
brought to the realization by Mar-
vin Lowenthal that it is incum-
bent upon every Jew to "do" in-
stead of "sit"and what better
way, thinks this young man. than
by affiliating with organizations
that are cognizant of the prob-
lems confronting the Jews, and
working for the alleviation of
their ills.
Miami Jewish Federation
With the beginning of the
"Federation" annual effort to ob-
tain sufficient funds to carry on
their work for another year in
the offing, committees are busy
doing preliminary work. And
this correspondent has heard
that they can use more workers.
Not every person can perform
the necessary work, and often
the person whose aid is enlisted
finds it difficult to devote the
time required. But if asked to
serve, it is because of special
qualifications that are particu-
larly adapted to the tasks to be
performed. Do not turn down
any request to become a worker
for "Federation."
The demands upon 'Tedera-
tion" are so many, and cover so
many diversified and vital needa,
that only should you make your
contribution as liberally as you
can, considering their needs, but
if your services are needed to
help attain their set goal, you
should not withhold that type of
aid.
In the local papers we saw a
picture of Louis Heiman, presi-
dent of Sholem Lodge, presenting
the American flag to Selective
Service Appeal Board No. 4. The
flag, whose folds seek to protect
all oppressed people. In the
B'nai B'rith National Monthly
Magazine, we saw a picture of
Rabbi Max Shapiro turning over
the Torah to soldiers in a nearby
camp for use in the holding of
services. A Torah for their ad-
herence to which Jews have bled
for centuries.

to exterminate the Jewish popu-
lation of occupied Europe has
now been put into effect in these
parts of Tunisia controlled by the
Axis, according to reports re-
ceived here this week from the
British-occupied isle of Djerba.
British troops entering Djerba
found only 15 aged Jews, the re-
port said. The rest of the Jew-
ish population had been sent to
unknown destinations for com-
pulsory labor. Little hope was
held here that the deported
Jews would ever again be seen
alive.
The 15 surviving Jews in
Djerba told their British lib-
erators that the Nazis had
conducted systematic pogroms
throughout Tunisia and that hun-
dreds of Jews had lost their lives.

BIBLE-TALMUD
STUDENT;1011 IN
RUSSIA IN I8G3
By DR. M. A. LIPKIND
Treasurer. Miami Beach Zionist
District
MENAHEM USSISHKIN
Zionism's Man of Iron
Menahem Ussishkin was born
Aug. 14, 1863, in Dubrovna. Rus-
sia. He was the only son of a
wealthy merchant. At the age
of eight his parents moved to
Moscow. Until 13 he studied the
Bible and the Talmud, then he
studied successively in the Real-
schule and in the Imperial Tech-
nical School, graduating in 1889
as engineer.
In 1881, a series of progoms
broke out in Southern Russia
and continued for two years. Rus-
sian journals, to which cultured
writers contributed, justified the
anti-Jewish excesses by declar-
ing that the Jews were foreigners
in Russia, and were injurious to
the dominant race: ominous fore-
boding of the present menace of
Hitlerism.
Russian Jewry was shaken to
its roots. The Jewish intellec-
tuals, who relied on an enlight-
ened people, and inclined towards
assimilation, were dumbfounded.
The 18-year-old Ussishkin was
stirred to the depths of his soul.
A short while afterwards he
learned that a national movement
sprung into being among the stu-
dents with the slogan of BILU.
(abbreviated Hebrew of "House
of Jacob, come, let us go." Let
us forsake Europe where the Jews
are strangers and return to the
land where the Jew has seen the
vision of peace and international
fraternity; the vision of the Jew-
ish prophets). This was the first
group of students who abandoned
their careers to take up the life
of agricultural pioneers in Pales-
tine. Ussishkin joined the group,

but being only a high school pupil
and not a university student, ne
was not elected as one of the
sevena Biluites, who were to
leave for the land of Israel. He
remained in Moscow and became
active in the Hovavei Zion So-
ciety, and the collection of funds
for the establishment of settle-
ments in Palestine. From this
time until the last day of his
long life, he was wrapped up in
a ceaseless effort for the realiza-
tion of his Zionist ideal.
The saga of Ussishkin's labors,
struggles ana achievements in the
last five decades is inseparable
from the story of Zionism, the
rennaissance of the Hebrew lan-
guage and the Jewish National
Fund. We will mention just a
few of the highlights of his Zion-
ist career. He was president of
the Hovavei Zion (lovers of Zion,
the Palestine colonization move-
ment which preceded the Theo-
dore Hertzl political Zionism)
from 1906 until the dissolution of
that body by the Bolsheviks. He
was one of the first to rally to
the call of Theodore Hertzl's po-
litical Zionism; and then bitterly
opposed him on the issue of
Uganda versus Palestine, which
resulted in its abandonment by
the Seventh Zionist Congress in
1905. In 1919 he was appointed
head of the Zionist Executive in
Palestine, where he remained the
kest of his life. Together with
Dr. Chaim Weizman he struggled
at the Eleventh Congress in 1913
for the establishment for a He-
brew university in Jerusalem.
He led a determined fight against
the Partition Plan, proposed by
the Peel Commission in 1936.
However, his greatest contribu-
tion to the resettlement of Pal-
estine was accomplished during
his presidency of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund, to which he was
elected in 1924. He served as
world president of J. N. F. until
his final rest in the cave of Nica-
nor on Mount Scopus, Jerusalem,
in 1941.
His activities included the col-
lection of funds, the redemption
of land and the exposition of the
basic principle and purpose of the
Jewish National Fund. To these
duties he brought to bear his in-
exhaustible energy and his iron
will. He set out to implant a
land redemption program, as a
national enterprise based upon
the principles of national land
ownership and social justice.
Ussishkin proved his great ca-
pacity, and exceptional talents,
in coping with the historical, po-
litical and psychological elements
and phases of the complex Pales-
tine problem. How well he suc-
ceeded we will learn when we
next study the activities and
achievements of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund.

A Message to Myself
This is a good time for me to take stock of my per-
sonal position. I do not know how grim the days
ahead may be. but in the comparative security of
America, there is a special feeling of thankfulness
in my heart.
I can count myself fortunate that I live in a land
where the poor and the weak and the crippled ar9
not doomed to hopelessness; where man is still his
brother's keeper.
It has always been my great pride as an American
and as a Jew that we have never failed the social
services of our community. Their support has be-
come as much a part of the normal pattern of our
lives as home, family and business.
As an American, it is my willing duty to do every-
thing that is required of me. and more. AS A JEW.
it is my obligation to help hold down our special
sector in the world struggle, at home and abroad.
At home. I must maintain the vital services for our
civilians and our men in service. In the process of
war. I would not want to destroy the things we are
fighting for. else a victory would be no victory at all.
Abroad. I must continue to sustain the victims of
Nazism and the enemies of Nazism wherever they
can be helped. Wherever there are Jews, there is
still resistance to Hitler. The countries in which they
live may be temporarily conquered by Hitler, but so
long as Jews remain, these lands will not be com-
pletely Nazi.
I appreciate that our future is bound up with the
future of Jews everywhere. Hitler draws no distinc-
tions. Now that isolationism has been completely
discredited in America, we must not be guilty of iso-
lationism at the sacrifice of our fellow-Jews any-
where.
I know thisand the Allies know this. Churchill
has stated that the people of the conquered coun-
tries are like brave soldiers on the battlefields of
democracy. I realize that In other countries, and
particularly in the Palestine sector. Jewish men are
in the thick of the battle. They. too. are fighting for
us. And President Roosevelt has declared that a
victory anywhere in the world represents a Tictory
for our own country.
I submit that this is more than our Jewish duty. It is
our American duty. The statements of President
Roosevelt. Secretary of the Nary Knox. Attorney
General Biddle, and others makes it amply clear
that our Government expects us to meet our own
obligations.
I appreciate that true patriotism means the complete
fulfillment of our duties. I feel that coming back
again to our annual Federation Campaign task is
like coming home to one of the things that ate
eternally fine and decent and enduring in a world
full of bitter change and disaster. I can give thanks
that there are places left in the world where there
can still be Federation Campaigns.
In the light of all this, how much should I contribute
to this years campaign? Should I give more, and
if so. how much more?
I ask myself these questions, knowing that the an-
swers do not depend entirely on any financial state-
ment, but rather on my frame of mind. I know that
ultimately the cause for which America and its Allies
are fighting will triumph.
1 gave what I thought was a fair amount last year.
Now that the need h areater^nd the goQl h ^m
shall giv. more-^a b. HAPPY that I am free to
give more.

FEBRUARY 26, 1943 ADAR I. 21. 5793 VOLUME 16 NUMBER9 LENDAHAND It's very strange and truly unexplainable how in this super-intelligent world of ours, how inconsistent we humans are. A vastly unproved people modernized beyond wildest imaginations over our former generations and ancestors, we cue supposed to have our entire bemgs down to a science, yet, if we would only look about us, we would see how inconsistent we are. m our personal professions, businesses, ana individual enterprises, we maintain secretaries, clerks, bookkeepers, accountants and even statisticians. Why?—to sum it up in simple brief phraseology, it is to know for certain periods cmd at all times just where we stand. To know what we're doing, how we're progessing and to repeat—where we stand. Yet. we find today in this, World War II. hundreds of our boys in the service and no accurate and permanent up-to-date record of this participation. The importance of this factual evidence is of unestimable value. With it, we will know what we are doing. When that period of time will come and with it, Victory, we will know from first-hand statistical information our share in it. Should it be necessary, it will be available for concrete evidence as to where we stood. Many other important reasons can be enumerated. Some are better not put in print. Suffice to say leaders all over the world deem it important enough to spend tireless and endless hours on this thankless project They point out the old adage, "In numbers, there is strength." The Greater Miami Army-Navy Committee, in cooperation with the Jewish Welfare Board's Servicemen's activities, has revised and rejuvenated its local permanent War Records Committee with the appointment ot Nat Roth as chairman. A go-getter, he has mapped out a program to obtain and keep up-to-date this statistical data. There is endless details attached to this big job. It requires the cooperation of the entire community. Parents, relatives and friends of our local boys in service are urged to pitch in and help do this job. Without them, it is nigh impossible. Starting next week, there will appear in the Jewish Floridian a coupon. We ask that anyone having information covering the questions. to please clip and forward.

THE PALESTINE SITUATION From London it was reported this week that the British government bad begun conversations with the Jews and with the Arabs simultaneously on the Palestine question. Some of the official timidity with dealing witii this question has disappeared, it is explained, because the British are now not so worried about the Arabs. There is no danger of the Arabs tying up with the Axis any more. The British can be outspoken if they wish. But will they wish and just how far are they prepared to go to meet Zionist demands, that is the question. It is a question that became more disconcerting to Zionists this week with the announcement of the resignation of Emanuel Neumann from the American Emergency Committee for Zionist Affairs. Mr. Neumann, in giving his reasons for his resignation, points to a very distressing situation existing in that body, which is very important at this juncture, because it is the diplomatic arm of the Zionist movement. According to this statement, this committee is marked by "recurrent factional and personal differences, vacillation in policy and action, absence of centralized administrative direction, and budgets wholly incommensurate with the immensity of the tasks." This is a very serious charge, if it is true. Mr. Neumann further goes on to point out that it prevails at a time when "there is no ground for undue optimism regarding the policital situation. The British administration attitude in Jerusalem, he declares, is hopeless, in London, it is bad, in Washington, it is unsatisfactory." With the American landing in North Africa, the United States has become a great Moslem power, he points out, but already our official quarters seem to be orienting toward an Arab rather than to a Jewish slant. Zionists must realize, too, that they have no Brandeis to lead them and many another of their important leaders have gone. Here is a crisis which can only be met by the Zionists bestirring themselves to the utmost. DONT TALK About rumors and harmful stories: Don't repeat stories—Which stir up racial discussion.

Fifth Street, Miami, will be under new management. The operation of this store, for charitable purposes, has been turned over to Sholem Lodge B'nai B'rith. The Ladies Auxiliary will cooperate with Sholem Lodge. The conditions under which Sholem Lodge is to undertake the management are these: Twenty-five per cent of the net proceeds will go into the Baron de Hirsch Fund; all profits that thereafter accrue are to be allocated for charitable and welfare uses. Sholem Lodge will set apart a separate fund, and all profits from the Rummage Store will be ear-marked for that fund. For the uninformed, the Rummage Store deals in used clothing and general merchandise. Donations of such articles as are no longer used by families should be donated to the Rummage Store—shoes, clothing, shirts, etc. All articles received are cleaned, mended, repaired and in a condition that satisfies sanitary standards are offered for sale. It is to be hoped that the community will cooperate in the donation of merchandise that can be put in shape for resale as "used" and "second-hand" clothes and articles. Great effort will have to be expended in the management and operation of this business—for it is a business— but the purpose is to raise money to be wisely distributed. Lest there be some misunderstanding, no profit of any kind or nature accrues to Sholem Lodge or the Ladies AuxiliaryMembership Campaign The "drive" has passed the half-way mark, with 59 applications received to date. Nat Roth is so far in front, having proposed about 25 per cent of the total to date, that there is little likelihood that he will be headed. But the race for second place will be interesting. Full scores will be supplied for the next column. Some interesting facts have developed in the "drive." Isidore Cohen, one of the pioneers of Miami, proposes his son. Corp. Edward Cohen, while already in the service Lieut. Robert Lewin, stationed at Boca Raton, a resident of Miami, was pro posed by Albert Green, while in the service Gustav Taussig acknowledges his acceptance into Sholem Lodge with thanks. A charter member of Warheit Lodge in Vienna, he knows "by experience that only high cultured, good Jews" are admitted to B'nai B'rith Lodges Paul Giller joins not only Sholem Lodge, but the Zionist organization, being brought to the realization by Marvin Lowenthal that it is incumbent upon every Jew to "do" instead of "sit"—and what better way, thinks this young man. than by affiliating with organizations that are cognizant of the problems confronting the Jews, and working for the alleviation of their ills. Miami Jewish Federation With the beginning of the "Federation" annual effort to obtain sufficient funds to carry on their work for another year in the offing, committees are busy doing preliminary work. And this correspondent has heard that they can use more workers. Not every person can perform the necessary work, and often the person whose aid is enlisted finds it difficult to devote the time required. But if asked to serve, it is because of special qualifications that are particularly adapted to the tasks to be performed. Do not turn down any request to become a worker for "Federation." The demands upon 'Tederation" are so many, and cover so many diversified and vital needa, that only should you make your contribution as liberally as you can, considering their needs, but if your services are needed to help attain their set goal, you should not withhold that type of aid. In the local papers we saw a picture of Louis Heiman, president of Sholem Lodge, presenting the American flag to Selective Service Appeal Board No. 4. The flag, whose folds seek to protect all oppressed people. In the B'nai B'rith National Monthly Magazine, we saw a picture of Rabbi Max Shapiro turning over the Torah to soldiers in a nearby camp for use in the holding of services. A Torah for their adherence to which Jews have bled for centuries. I Wieh to Extend the Han* • Good Fellowship to My Frlenele 308 E.

PAGE EIGHT ^jewistfkrj^w FIUDAY. FORUABY 28 A Message to Myself This is a good time for me to take stock of my personal position. I do not know how grim the days ahead may be. but in the comparative security of America, there is a special feeling of thankfulness in my heart. I can count myself fortunate that I live in a land where the poor and the weak and the crippled ar9 not doomed to hopelessness; where man is still his brother's keeper. It has always been my great pride as an American and as a Jew that we have never failed the social services of our community. Their support has become as much a part of the normal pattern of our lives as home, family and business. As an American, it is my willing duty to do everything that is required of me. and more. AS A JEW. it is my obligation to help hold down our special sector in the world struggle, at home and abroad. At home. I must maintain the vital services for our civilians and our men in service. In the process of war. I would not want to destroy the things we are fighting for. else a victory would be no victory at all. Abroad. I must continue to sustain the victims of Nazism and the enemies of Nazism wherever they can be helped. Wherever there are Jews, there is still resistance to Hitler. The countries in which they live may be temporarily conquered by Hitler, but so long as Jews remain, these lands will not be completely Nazi. I appreciate that our future is bound up with the future of Jews everywhere. Hitler draws no distinctions. Now that isolationism has been completely discredited in America, we must not be guilty of isolationism at the sacrifice of our fellow-Jews anywhere. I know this—and the Allies know this. Churchill has stated that the people of the conquered countries are like brave soldiers on the battlefields of democracy. I realize that In other countries, and particularly in the Palestine sector. Jewish men are in the thick of the battle. They. too. are fighting for us. And President Roosevelt has declared that a victory anywhere in the world represents a Tictory for our own country. I submit that this is more than our Jewish duty. It is our American duty. The statements of President Roosevelt. Secretary of the Nary Knox. Attorney General Biddle, and others makes it amply clear that our Government expects us to meet our own obligations. I appreciate that true patriotism means the complete fulfillment of our duties. I feel that coming back again to our annual Federation Campaign task is like coming home to one of the things that ate eternally fine and decent and enduring in a world full of bitter change and disaster. I can give thanks that there are places left in the world where there can still be Federation Campaigns. In the light of all this, how much should I contribute to this years campaign? Should I give more, and if so. how much more? I ask myself these questions, knowing that the answers do not depend entirely on any financial statement, but rather on my frame of mind. I know that ultimately the cause for which America and its Allies are fighting will triumph. 1 gave what I thought was a fair amount last year. Now that the need h areater ^ nd the goQl h ^ m shall giv. more-^a b. HAPPY that I am free to give more. GREATER 1002 Congress Building JEWISH FEDERATION Phone 3 5411 coop**** Th. J#wtak pV)fVi ^

Rabbi Landman is editor of the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia and is founder and director of the Academy for Adult Jewish Education in addition to holding many positions of prominence in the organizational life of the country.

Herman Wall and Jake Fait are co-chairmen of the affairs scheduled for I and their prospects are for Mai t and 14 with elaborate programs and outstanding speakers. In view of the present war conditions, necessitating taking into consideration transportation and rationing, the Federation Organization was streamlined to meet these existing conditions. Plans include small gatherings of the various groups at ideally located meeting places where com munm-minded citizenry will be told the part the Federation plays in the scheme of world events and Ha important dominent role in the local sphere. Federation officers have adopted a policy which eliminates all pressure on the many contributors. We feel, they stated, that an intelligent presentation of our case to me people as has been accomplished by our speakers' division, under the chairmanship •f Rabbi Colman A. Zwitman, is all that Will be necessary. This continued presentation, together with a wholehearted cooperation af the community, cannot help but make the drive a success. "Full speed ahead" is the order from Stanley C. Meyra, Chairman of 1943 Greater diami Jewish Federation Victory Anneal. Completing more Ike months of prelimiBling. giving the drive a thoroughness never before achieved, the chairman stated his divj ion heads, their captains and Workers were completely familiarised with the campaign structure for the '43 drive differing from any of those previous. March 11 to 31 has been set as the dates for the campaign. The drive will be officially opened with a workers' mass meeting the Saturday evening preceding. A prominent nationally-known apoarrr is expected to be present to emphasize further the importance of the success of the allout undertaking by rendering a fCQNTINUED~0~N FAOB SI SYNAGOGUES OBSERVE DAY OF PRAYER FOR RUSSIANS London (WNS) — Synagogues throughout England joined with all other British churches in observing a day of prayer for Russia last week-end. Instructions for Jewish participation in the nation-wide prayer day for the Soviet forces were issued by Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz, who said: "The sons and daughters of English Jewry share the friendly, feelings for the Russian people. The Nazi fiends are daily exterminating thousands of our brethren. In all civilized lands there is a universal chorus of sympathy for the doomed victims, but so far there is well nigh universal inaction. It is the nope of all good men that victory of the Soviet armies will strengthen the forces of liberalism and humanity which are strangely paralyzed with fatal results for multitudes of Jewish men and women. ALEPH ZADIK ACES CHANGED FROM 18 TO 14 IS DECREED Washington, D. C—Reduction of the age limit in Aleph Zadik Aleph, B'nai B'rith youth organization, from 18 to 14 because of the fact that 2,896 members 18 and over have gone into the armed forces was voted by the annual meeting of AZA's SuS reme Advisory Council.

Of the 2,896 AZA members in the armed forces, 23 have been killed in action or in line of duty and 16 have been cited or decorated for bravery. Mr. Klutznick also reported that 3,641 AZA alumni (boys over 21) and nearly 500 chapter advisors are in the armed forces. RED CROSS SABBATH TO BE OBSERVED BY RELIGIOUS ORDERS THROUGHOUT U. S.

LEVIN KILLED IN PACIFIC New York (INS) — Sergeant Meyer Levin, America's ace bombardier, who sank the Japanese battleship Ha run a and a large Japanese passenger-cargo ship, will no longer fly in the service of his country but one and perhaps two giant bombers, bearing Sergeant Levin's name, will complete the job so gallantly started by the 26-year-old American Jewish hero. Sergeant Levin, who was decorated with the Distinguished Service Cross, the Silver Star and the Oak Leaf Cluster, was killed on Jan. 7 when his bomber crashed into the sea during a storm 40 miles south of Port Moresby while returning from its shadowing of a Japanese convoyThe young Brooklyn hero became a national figure on Dec. 10, 1941, when, as bombardier in Capt. Colin Kelly's plane, he avenged the death of many of his comrades at Pearl Harbor three days earlier by sending the Ha runa to the bottom of the Pacific. He participated in the battles of Java and the Coral Sea and took part in more than 50 missions against Japanese base? at Rabaul. Lae, Salamaua and in the Solomons. During the Coral Sea battle he sank a 12,000-ton Japanese cargo vessel. His mother was recovering from an operation when the news came. EVERY PERSON IS URGED TO ASK FOR Z BY County, and tho praaontation to tho Appoal flag roeolvod from B'nai B'rith. "Every person should register for War Ration Book 2, whether he needs it at present or not." the chairman of the local War Price and Rationing Board cautioned residents of Dade County today. "Reports to the rationing board indicate that farmers who raise and can their own fruits and vegetables and meats are under the impression that they will not need to register for the point ration book. On the contrary, Uncle Sam wants every man, woman and child in the United States to have a ration book, since the rationing program may include not only its present phases, but other possible developments in the future. M I want to emphasize the necessity for every person, whether in the town or county, whether he preserves his own food or relies on the corner grocery, to register for War Ration Book 2 during the six-day period from Feb. 22 through Feb. 27," he said. "At the same time" he further advised, "persons who eat their meals in restaurants or other public eating places, who do not at present need War Ration Book 2, should register for weir point books without fail."

Mr. jffay is a visitor here and during his stay he has made several appearances in behalf of Zionism, including a lecture at the Cairo (WNS)—The Nazi scheme to exterminate the Jewish population of occupied Europe has now been put into effect in these parts of Tunisia controlled by the Axis, according to reports received here this week from the British-occupied isle of Djerba. British troops entering Djerba found only 15 aged Jews, the report said. The rest of the Jewish population had been sent to unknown destinations for compulsory labor. Little hope was held here that the deported Jews would ever again be seen alive. The 15 surviving Jews in Djerba told their British liberators that the Nazis had conducted systematic pogroms throughout Tunisia and that hundreds of Jews had lost their lives.

Miami Beach Zionist District MENAHEM USSISHKIN Zionism's Man of Iron Menahem Ussishkin was born Aug. 14, 1863, in Dubrovna. Russia. He was the only son of a wealthy merchant. At the age of eight his parents moved to Moscow. Until 13 he studied the Bible and the Talmud, then he studied successively in the Realschule and in the Imperial Technical School, graduating in 1889 as engineer. In 1881, a series of progoms broke out in Southern Russia and continued for two years. Russian journals, to which cultured writers contributed, justified the anti-Jewish excesses by declaring that the Jews were foreigners in Russia, and were injurious to the dominant race: ominous foreboding of the present menace of Hitlerism. Russian Jewry was shaken to its roots. The Jewish intellectuals, who relied on an enlightened people, and inclined towards assimilation, were dumbfounded. The 18-year-old Ussishkin was stirred to the depths of his soul. A short while afterwards he learned that a national movement sprung into being among the students with the slogan of BILU. (abbreviated Hebrew of "House of Jacob, come, let us go." Let us forsake Europe where the Jews are strangers and return to the land where the Jew has seen the vision of peace and international fraternity; the vision of the Jewish prophets). This was the first group of students who abandoned their careers to take up the life of agricultural pioneers in Palestine. Ussishkin joined the group, WEST PALM BEACH NOTES Pvt. Henry Goldstein, son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Goldstein of 500 First Street, is now stationed at Rice, Cal. At a recent meeting of Beth El Congregation Ben Wolfson and I. Moss were elected to serve as vice-chairmen and A. Levin as treasurer. B'nai B'rith Lodge was host to service men stationed at Boca Raton at a dance last week. Dr. Carl N. Herman, spiritual leader of Beth Israel, spoke on the life of George Washington at Friday night services last week. Emanucl Greenstein introduced Rev. Clinton of the Union Congregational Church at Beth El services Friday. Election of officers took place last Tuesday at Beth El of the B'nai B'rith Auxiliary. but being only a high school pupil and not a university student, ne was not elected as one of the sevena Biluites, who were to leave for the land of Israel. He remained in Moscow and became active in the Hovavei Zion Society, and the collection of funds for the establishment of settlements in Palestine. From this time until the last day of his long life, he was wrapped up in a ceaseless effort for the realization of his Zionist ideal. The saga of Ussishkin's labors, struggles ana achievements in the last five decades is inseparable from the story of Zionism, the rennaissance of the Hebrew language and the Jewish National Fund. We will mention just a few of the highlights of his Zionist career. He was president of the Hovavei Zion (lovers of Zion, the Palestine colonization movement which preceded the Theodore Hertzl political Zionism) from 1906 until the dissolution of that body by the Bolsheviks. He was one of the first to rally to the call of Theodore Hertzl's political Zionism; and then bitterly opposed him on the issue of Uganda versus Palestine, which resulted in its abandonment by the Seventh Zionist Congress in 1905. In 1919 he was appointed head of the Zionist Executive in Palestine, where he remained the kest of his life. Together with Dr. Chaim Weizman he struggled at the Eleventh Congress in 1913 for the establishment for a Hebrew university in Jerusalem. He led a determined fight against the Partition Plan, proposed by the Peel Commission in 1936. • However, his greatest contribution to the resettlement of Palestine was accomplished during his presidency of the Jewish National Fund, to which he was elected in 1924. He served as world president of J. N. F. until his final rest in the cave of Nicanor on Mount Scopus, Jerusalem, in 1941. His activities included the collection of funds, the redemption of land and the exposition of the basic principle and purpose of the Jewish National Fund. To these duties he brought to bear his inexhaustible energy and his iron will. He set out to implant a land redemption program, as a national enterprise based upon the principles of national land ownership and social justice. Ussishkin proved his great capacity, and exceptional talents, in coping with the historical, political and psychological elements and phases of the complex Palestine problem. How well he succeeded we will learn when we next study the activities and achievements of the Jewish National Fund. BROTHERHOOD GREETINGS LEON'S BAKERY 2416 Ponce de Leon Blvd. CORAL QABLES, FLA.
