PRICE TEN CENTS
DEDIGATED TO THE
OABE FALLEN UN
Calling upon all citizens of
Florida to "re-dedicate your-
selves to the cause for which
these brave men have fallen,"
Gov. Spessard L. Holland, in a
fitting climax to Miami's two-
day celebration of Independence
day, Monday dedicated the Dade
County War Memorial.
The memorial was unveiled by
Mrs. Claude H Atkins, mother of
Lt. Robert H. McKown, Navy
flier who was the first Dade
countian reported killed in World
War II, revealing the names of 87
service men from Dade County
who have lost their lives on land
and sea and in the air.
The unveiling of the memorial,
which has been placed on a plot
facing the Anton J. Cermak me-
morial, took place following dedi-
catory addresses by Gov. Holland
and Circuit Judge George E.
Holt, who headed the sponsoring
association, in the ampitheater.

Meanwhile, the Jewish Agency
for Palestine expressed its "deep
grief at the death of Major
Victor Cazalet, pro-Zionist mem-
ber of parliament, who was

ish Agency lauded Major Cazalet
as a "true friend and an undaunt-

London (WNS)A plan in-
volving the deportation to Nazi-
occupied Poland of Italy's 50.000
Jews and the 20,000 Jewish refu-
gees who fled to Italy in pre-war
years has been sent to Premier
Mussolini by the secretariat of
the Fascist Party, the London
press reported this week.
The expulsion plan, which has
the full backing of Nazi military
officials, was drawn up by the
Fascist party as part of the gen-
eral Axis strategy to defend Italy
from Allied invasion attempts.
Fascist leaders were said to have
expressed fear that the Jews
would cooperate with the Allies
in the event of an invasion.
The Fascist Party secretariat
urged Mussolini to establish spe-
cial concentration camps for the
Jews in Lombardy if it is found
impossible to deport them to Pol-
and, the report added.
WARN RUMANIA JEWS
TO PAY SPECIAL TAX
Geneva (JTA)Jews in Ru-
mania were "reminded" this
week in a broadcast over the
Bucharest radio station that by
August 12 they must complete
payment of the 4,000,000,000 lei
(approximately $28,000,000) "spe-
cial Jewish tax" imposed upon
One half of the 4,000,000.000 lei
had been collected by the Ru-
manian authorities by the middle
of June. Unless the second half
is paid by August 12, all Jewish
taxpayers who have not made
their payments will be deported
together with their families to
L53L a i?_i:5u Transnitria. the broadcast warned.
The collection of the first 2,-
000,000.000 lei caused great hard-
ship. Jews were forced to sell
their belongings in order to pay
the tax. This resulted in a sharp
drop in the price of securities
and resulted in chaos on the Ru-
manian stock exchange, since the
wealthier Jews rushed to sell
their stocks and bonds in order to

London (WNS)Stating that
the United Nations cannot afford
"to allow the situation to deter-

which may be the springboard
of future Allied offensives against
Hitler's Europe, the London Econ-
omist, influential British weekly
newspaper, called upon the Allies
this week to clarify their position
with regard to Jewish and Arab
rights in post-war Palestine.
The London newspaper sug-
gested that the United States and
Great Britain issue a joint state-
ment outlining their views on
Jewish aspirations in Palestine
and on the much-discussed for-
mation of a federation of Arab
countries. The article said that

BAN DISPLAY OF

ties in Holland have banned the
display of the work of living
Jewish artists in art dealers'
shops and in exhibitions, is was
reported this week by the Aneta
Storm, publication of the Dutch
Nazi Elite Guard, stated that the
restriction was based on the fact
that Jewish artists are barred
from membership in the National
Socialist sponsred Netherlands
Culture Chamber. The order
was issued before the rounding
up of most of the remaining Jews
The publication decried the
fact that the ban had not also
been made to apply to works of
dead Jewish artists, declaring,
"These are most insignificant and
the world would lose nothing if
the sale of their works was aiso
forbidden. Since this has not
happened so far and because
there is a general boom in the
art trade, so-called masterpieces
of dead Jewish artists find high
bidders. Our culture would not
be a cent the poorer if these
works were destroyed."

"The Garden of Memories
Florida's Most Beautiful Burial Estates
YEAR OF SERVICE
IT IS slightly more than a year ago that I opened the
gates of Mount Nebo. Recognizing the need for a
Jewish Cemetery ideally located, carefully planned
and thoughtfully laid out with thoughts to the fut-
ure, I strived to have Mount Nebo meet these stand-
ards. I felt the need for a well financed cemetery not
dependent upon burials for income. I saw the ne-
cessity of a sound business structure and how essen-
tial it was to the security of a burial park. I knew
that perpetual care, title
insurance, roadways and
walks between resting
places all were musts to
guarantee a proper rest-
ing place for those near
and dear to us. It is the
last physical gesture we
bestow upon our loved
ones. Perfection as far as
possible in all these de-
tails must be the objective
of the creators of a ceme-
Mount Nebo is well
planned and carefully
laid out. There has been
provided ample roadways
and more important ample
walks between graves. It
is ideally located and eas-
ily accessible. Mount Nebo
is beautifully landscaped. It offers perpetual care
and title insurance and convenient term purchase
plans. Insuring a firm and sound future Mount Nebo
has a financially strong ownership.
During this past year the tribute paid Mount Nebo
by the many families who chose our park to inter
their loved ones justifies my efforts and that those ef-
forts have seen Mount Nebo meet the standards it
has set. With no sales activities Mount Nebo was
chosen by more than half a hundred families, more
than any other similar cemetery located here.
I thank South Florida Jewry for their gracious
acceptance of Mount Nebo. This tribute paid by our
residents will spur my efforts to continue to make
Mount Nebo better and more beautiful. I will con-
tinue to strive to justify Mount Nebo as "Florida's
Most Beautiful Burial Estates."

Washington (WNS)A propos-

a "reasonable number of Euro-
pean Jewish refugees to enter
the country as visitors for the
duration of the war was made
in the House of Representatives
this week by Congressman Eman-
uel Celler of New York.
"Twenty-two nations have de-
clared war on Germany," Mr
Celler declared. "High ranking
nationals of all of them have is-
sued pious protestations against
Nazi massacres of Jews and oth-

countries so far has said it would
be willing to accept as refugees
any of those trying to escape the
Hitler prison and slaughter house.
"Goebbels says, 'They won't
take any Jews, we don't want
them, let's kill them.' Without
any change in our immigration
statutes, we could receive, as vis-
itors, a reasonable number of
those who are fortunate enough
to escape the Nazi hell-house.
They could be placed in camps
and cantonments and held there
until after the war."
Mr. Celler told the House that
private welfare agencies and a
number of wealthy persons were
prepared to defray all the costs
of such a program, including
transportation, and that the en-
tire project would involve no gov-
"We house and maintain Nazi
prisoners, many of whom are un-

no less for the victims of the

Urging immediate action to
save the Jewish refugees, Mr
Celler added: "The hangman
doesnt wait. We should take
them in now. Such action on our
part would have an electrifying
effect on the whole situation, and

THE BEACH "Y"
Miami Beach as a locality has for many
years raised the cry for a community center
or a "Y" on the Beach proper. Not that the
"Y" in Miami was not good. Not that they
were looking to establish themselves as a sep-
arate community. It was just that the residents
of the Beach felt that that area was in need of,
and had to have, a physical structure of its
own. The proponents of these contentions and
rightly so, maintained that the topography of
the two communities were so laid out that a
building in Miami could not serve the needs
of a town hall, or a recreation center. Geo-
graphically it is not feasible to have to cross
the causeway to find a place for the every-
day needs that a "Y" fills.
It has been the usual thing since the in-
ception of Federation that preceding and dur-
ing the annual drive, constant bickering and
threatening is forthcoming on the part of the
Miami Beach residents to withdraw support,
unless the needs of that area were attended to.
Federation as part of its expansion pro-
gram has delved into community planning as
one of its new phases of activity. Realizing
the justification of these pleas and as part of
its newly adopted program, Federation was
instrumental in calling together more than a
hundred communal minded Beach citizens
several months ago. And with this call and at
this meeting was demonstrated the enthusi-
asm stored up through the years. The pass-
word, by-word and every other word was
Like most other groups and projects, the
enthusiasm waned as the meetings continued.

Time marches on! It seems as]
but yesterday when Pearl Harbor
was attacked, and our citizens
have just dedicated on Monday,
July 5th, a temporary War Me-'
morial in memory of 87 honored i
dead from Dade County. It'
speaks well for our democratic I
way of life that Protestants, Cath-;
olics and Jews all receive equal |
treatment in the placing of names
upon the Memorial. Among the
Jewish men so honored thus far,
and may the names to be in-
scribed upon the Memorial be
few, are Irving Ginsburg. Albert
Kasanof, Allen Yutkin, and Al-
fred M. Union. In planning for
the dedication of the Dade County
War Memorial, Jewish men of our
community, and incidentally all
members of Sholem Lodge. B'nai
B'rith, played a part. The chair-
man of arrangements was Louie
Bandel. former municipal judge;
the master of ceremonies was
Herbert U. Feibelman; an hon-
ored guest who sat on the speak-
ers* platform was Abe S. Gold-
man, former commander of the
Jewish War Veterans; another
honored guest who assisted ma-
terially in the financing of the
Memorial was Joseph A. Richter,
who has three sons in the armed
forces; and serving in the com-
mittee hn charge of arrangements
was Louis Heiman, president of
Sholem Lodge. Last, but not
least. Rabbi Max Shapiro joined
a Protestant minister and a Cath-
olic priest in giving prayers at
the dedicatory ceremonies. We
need have no fear for the future
of our democracy so long as these
principles of equality among men
are practiced here and elsewhere.
True, they formed an organization. They adopt-
ed a constitution and by-laws. They are pre-
paring a charter, but the aggressiveness dis-
played at the outset has gone. The attend-
ance at meetings has fallen off. And why?
Because the project, like many others, did not
receive the careful planning and considera-
tion it had to have. Its progress was not laid
out. Its budget was not looked into with fore-
; sight. Its physical facilities were not blue-
printed. Its financial structure was not set up.
Sureall this will be taken care of. The tem-
porary officers will plod their way through a
mess of detail, setting up plans, changing and
altering them as conditions demand. Count-
less energy has been wasted. Interest and
enthusiasm will be more difficult to reattract.
In this fast moving world we today find our-
selves in a scientific sphere. There is a sci-
ence to everything including organizations. A
science that plans and makes improvements
by profiting by previous mistakes.
That science demands that we plan for to-
' day and the future. Those interested in a "Y"
for Miami Beach must now lay plans for the
j future. They must have trained advice and
; leadership. Immediate steps to secure a di-
rector qualified to guide the organization must
j be taken. They should consult and plan with
local experienced leadership.
Then will the efforts of these interested
I citizens be crowned with progress. Then will
the citizen of Miami Beach find himself speed-
ily on the way to an actively going project.
Then will the youth of that area be able to
! look forward to a place of their own, a place
that will serve as a recreational and charac-
i ter-building institution for old as well as young.
pleased this time to tell you of
our dancing classes. These are

Not all the activities of the Jewish delegation here from
the Soviet Union have reached the press ... For example,
Prof. Solomon Michoels and Lieutenant-Colonel Itzik Feffer
spent two and a half hours at luncheon with the Chaim
Weizmanns a few days before the Zionist leader and his
wife left for London The visitors brought Dr. Weizmann
regards from his brother Shmuel, who is a big shot in the
Soviet government Another interesting get-together the
delegation had was at dinner with George Backer as host...
Jacob Landau of the JTA. Joseph Hyman of the JDC, the South
American journalist and Joe Brainin were the other guests,
and the chief topic of discussion was the Jewish situation in
Europe Prof. Michoels says that the figure of 2,000,000
Jews having been exterminated by Hitler is a gross under-
statement ... He declares that 4,000,000 is much closer to
the mark When the delegation visited Prof. Albert Ein-
stein at his Princeton home, the great Jewish scientist told
them. "Hitler may be beaten by the Allies, but he has al-
ready won his war against the Jews."
Hollywood's William Wyler won an Academy Award
this year for his "Mrs. Miniver," but since then he's won an-
other award which he prizes much more highly: "The Air
Medal," bestowed on him for his flights over enemy targets
as a major in the U. S. Air Force Commentator Gabriel
Heatter is a proud man these days His son, Ensign Basil
Heatter, has gone off to sea duty in charge of his own ship.
In the Red Army, you should know, there are a hundred full-
ranking Jewish generals Soon to join General Eisenhower
as an honorary member of the British knighthood, if reports
from England are correct, is Daniel Arnstein.
Pierre van Paassen's recent speech at the Jamaica. L. I.
conference of the UPA is the talk of Zionists these days .
This Goyish expert on Zionism warned the Zionist leadership
against unfounded optimism, and took the leaders to task for
not projecting right now an intensive campaign against the
abrogation of the immigration quota for Palestine Are
there union troubles in the offices of the New York United
Jewish Appeal Campaign? We've heard some disturbing
rumors Herbert Hoover, reports Danton Walker, may be
invited to go to Palestine to make a first-hand report on the
Jewish refugee problem And Ed Sullivan quotes a cor-
respondent as writing from Tripoli that "the British are think-
ing very seriously of turning Tripolitania over to the Jews .
It is beautiful and no Arabs."

Epitomizes Emil Ludwig: "In America all is allowed that
is not expressly verboten ... In Germany all is verboten that
is not expressly allowed" Scheduled for fall publication
by Simon and Schuster is a collection of stories entitled "The
Ten Commandments" Each Commandment is treated by
a famous author, the theme being Hitler's efforts to destroy
these Laws of Moses Among the writers represented in
the volume are Thomas Mann, Sigrid Undset. Rebecca West
and Franz Werfel The best punishment for Adolf, says
Neal O'Hara, is to sentence the non-smoking fuehrer to be
asphyxiated in an atmosphere polluted by Churchill's big
black cigars, Roosevelt's cigarettes and Stalin's pipes
ABOUT PEOPLE j
Jennie Moscowitz, veteran oi the Yiddish stage as well as
of Broadway, celebrated her 55th anniversary in the theatre
by playing her nightly role as Paul Muni's mother in "Coun-
sellor-at-law" When Jennie made her debut in Rumania,
back in 1888, she had a part in a presentation of "Camille"
starring Sarah Bernhardt "Budapest Rhepsody" is the tile
Playwright Ferenc Molnar has chosen for his autobiography.
A Florida priest and a Manhattan rabbi joined forces last
week-end to conduct a memorial service for Sam Harris, the
Broadway showman who died two years ago ... In accord-
ance with Sam's last wish, the memorial took the form of a
party at Dinty Moore's Harold Arlen, the songwriter who's
responsible for quite a few popular ditties and has written the
music for the forthcoming Danny Kaye film, is the son of a
Syracuse rabbi... By the time you read this Ben Hecht may
already have chalked up another blessed event ... It isn't
exactly a new experience for him, but it's been a long time
since he's had it Ben. you remember, has a married
daughter. He also has just completed a screen play cen-
tering about Billy Rose's World Fair sensation, the Aquacade.
Sidney Skolsky passes on Herman Rauschnigg's story of
the Jewish refugee wTio begged the owner of a small travel-
ing circus in France to help him escape the Nazis "We
have a gorilla costume," the man told him. "and if you want
to put it on and pretend you're the gorilla, you can travel to
Spam with us" The refugee jumped at the opportunity,
and whenever the circus appeared in a town he put on a good
show ... But late one night, when he was all alone in the
cage he had to inhabit, he was horrified to discover that the
bars had become loosened on one side, and a lion, from the
cage next door was squeezing through the opening As
the hon approached him, the gorilla-refugee cringed in a
corner and began to shout for help Whereupon the lion
growled: "Keep quiet, you fool ... Do you want the police to
come running? ... You aren't the only refugee in this circus."

Director of the Friends of De-
mocracy, L. M. Birkhead, has just
returned from a trip through the
Middle West, and reports that
anti-Semitism there is gaining
ground among all kinds of peo-
ple Vicious anti-Semitic sen-
timents, he says, are expressed
not only among the crackpot or-;
ganizations Silver Shirts, fol-j
Towers of Rev. Gerald L. K. j
Smith, Gerald B. Winrod. Mrs.
Elizabeth Dillingbut in the so-
called best circles ... In the best
clubs, the talk actually reflects
the Hitler political line, so that
there is an indication that anti-
Semitism may become a powerful
political weapon against the tra-
ditionally liberal American meth-
ods People who never before
had an opinion one way or the
other about Jews as a group, now
parrot the anti-Semitic "line" .
For example, a major complaint
is that the Jews are buying con-
trol of properties Ask them
what propertiesname a few of
the leading industrial or financial
organizations, and they seem
puzzled to explain their beliefs.
Customarily they end up by nam-
ing some piece of real estate re-
cently acquired by a Jew .
Another complaint is based upon
the identifiable Hitler propaganda
that "the Jews got us into the
war" Would citizens of the
Middle West stoop to join any
anti-Semitic violence? The
answer is that this is not likely,
but in their present frame of
mind they would fail to oppose
such depravity They would
take the attitude: "It serves
them right," Mr. Birkhead thinks.

The Belgian Information Cen-
ter here, which obtained a copy
i of the underground document,
' reported that Belgian patriots
[are doing all in their power to
[save their Jewish neighbors from
deportation to occupied Poland,
which is tantamount to a death
sentence. The document contains
the following instructions to pa-
triotic Belgian anti-Nazis:
"1. Inform everyone about the
crimes committed against the
Jews. The kept press is silent.
Only the population of a few big
cities knows what is going on.
The occupier is afraid of the
people's wrath. This wrath must
be aroused by letting every Bel-
gian know what is happening
in Brussels. Antwerp. Charleroi.
"2. Help the Jews resist raids.
Leave your apartment when raids
are on, start a street fight against
the Gestapo agents. When riots
break out. actively intervene to
, aid the Jews to resist and escape.
-3. Help the Jews to hide.
Distribute the Jews among the
; non-Jewish population. Attempt
to find non-Jewish families who
! will agree to house free or for
a minimum sum one or several
Jewish children, or possibly there
is a child prevcntorium. nursery,
boarding school or convent which
would agree to house Jewish
children. Find families who will
agree to reserve a room for a
Jewish sub-lessee. Look for ho-
tels willing to take one to four
[Jewish boarders without regis-
tering them. Investigate institu-
tions in the community (hospit-
als, asylums, convents) that might
agree to shelter Jews. Look for |
I well-to-do families who would j
agree to take a Jewish sen-ant. **
Look for small businesses or
farms that would be willing to
take Jewish work- rs."
The Underground offers the
following advice to Belgian Jews:
"Save your lit.- by hiding. It
you are unable to do so. then
resist raids by force. Barricade
yourselves in your homes. Arouse
your neighbors. Snatch the arms
of the Gestapo brutes and strike
them down like dogs. By resist-
ing your fate could not be worse
than if you allow yourself to be-
taken to the slaughter house- of

At 23, Lt. Norman Segal is a
veteran of 30 air operations
against the Italians and Ger-

of Abbeville and Rouen. He pil-

He holds the Distinguished Fly-

has offered to leave his classes
for a bit and take you along with
him on a bombing raid over a
Nazi air field in France. The
raid will be over Abbeville, one
of the strongest Nazi fields on the
It's a morning mission and. says
Lt. Segal, you and the other crew
members have just finished a
heavy breakfast of fried dried
eggs, coffee, toast, butter and
canned fruit juices. You go into
the briefing room for "gen" which
freely translated, means infor-
mation on the run. Today's
"gen," it seems, is wind, due
west, traveling 15 miles an hour.
Cloud over is three-tenths: the
lieutenant says that means "there
aren't many clouds." But here
comes the flight commander
now, with the flight plans. Op-
position is going to be heavy, he
announces. Still wanna go?
O. K. Only 12 seconds for the
bomb run on this trip, you're in-
formed. Out at the plane, you
check over instruments and bomb
load, and wait for Segal to draw
the course on his bomb charts.
He is going to be navigator and
bombardier this time.
Now you draw your "life vest
and "escape kits." empty your
pockets of junk, climb into the
plane you're in the aid. Lt.
Segal will take over from here:

low like a giant half put-together

told it would be there when you
got instructions in the briefing
room. The destroyers moving in
and out leave long wakes, mak-
ing it look like somebody is
aquaplaning down there.
"Once more you check the
wind drift altitude .
"In 18 minutes from the time
you picked up your escort you
are over the French coasta long
stretch of green checkerboard of
farms. You're on time, but you
are two miles from the point you
figured on hitting. You make a
minor correction, and alter the
course quickly for Abbeville .
"As you near Abbeville, you
look to the left for the airfield.
That's your target. From then
on there's no more sightseeing,
but you keep your eye on that tar-
get. As you pass over the town,
change course 90 degrees to the
left and start in."
O. K. loot. Ninety degrees, all
set. Lt. Segal says don't say
"O. K." It just isn't Air Force.
Say "Roger," which means the
same thing. All right. Roger.
"The flak starts now. (Segal
talking.) Big puffs of smoke
looking like balls of black cot-
ton. They're popping up every-
where around you. As you near
the field you hear the clatter of
shrapnel against the ship, like
pebbles on a tin roof.
"The top gunner yells that an
ME 19 is coming in from the sun.
The tail gunner yells Roger. But
you're too busy to be worried.
"You leave your navigator's
compartment now and go past
the pilots into the greenhouse
the glassed-in nose. Down on
your hands and knees, you check
once more on the bombing equip-
ment, open the bomb bay doors.
"You curse subconsciously as
the flak gets heavier and heav-
ier. The pilot is putting in evas-
ive action now, rolling, diving,
swooping, anything to get out of
"You can hear the guns chat-
tering, know there's a dog-fight
going on outside. From the cor-
ner of your eye you see two
planes falling in smoke. You
don't know if they're yours or
Are you over the target yet,
"Now you're over the target.
You can see the planes like tiny
toys scattered in the dispersal
areas. You're so high you can
hardly see the black 'iron crosses'
on their fuselages. The run-
ways are camouflaged in green
and yellow, but you're looking for
them and see them anyway.
There are the sheds and the han-
gars, tiny dots. You press the
bomb release and yell 'bombs
away.' You see the bombs cas-
cading down and close the doors.
"The pilot puts in a steep turn
(feel it?) and once again the ship
is bouncing and buckling in evas-
ive action. You look back and
see the bombs from your and

Maurice "Duke" Marshall. Jew-
ish Welfare Board representative
in Fairbanks, Alaska, blew into
New York City last week. Under
the influence of a record heat
wave that arrived in town the
same day, the icicles on "Duke's"
brow quickly thawed and he
warmed to his subject.
"The boys coming to Fair-
banks from the States are amazed
at our USO," he declared. "We
have a specially designed two-
story building, tastefully furnish-
ed in leather and equipped with
everything from darkrooms to an
"We've got a canteen and we
really need it up there. An or-
dinary sandwich costs 65 cents in
Fairbanks, but we sell it for 20:"
Mr. Marshall reported that the
people in Fairbanks are "super-
duper" and that "the young mat-
rons of this community of 4.000
entertain the army men monthly
with a party at the USO. The 65
eligible white and Indian girls
serve as regular hostesses. It's
winter most of the time, and in
summer "you can read a boy's
lips a block away as he says good
"Duke" said he was leaving the
city in a hurry because there was
plenty of work waiting in Fair-
banks and anyhow, there are the
moose. Seems some of the boys
will be eligible for hunting li-
censes this summer because they
have lived in Alaska a year, and
they are going to hunt moose.
"A moose weighs 1,000 pounds
and a moose steak tastes much
better than beef," Mr. Marshall
explained, ruinning his tongue
over his lips.
The sandwiches may be 65c
up there, Duke, but where else
can you get steak these days?

Remember Corporal Bernard
Kessel, the New York gunner
who personally invaded Oran in
an army tank? Sure you do.
Only recently he wrote to his
family telling how he had forfeit-
ed a promotion in order to stay
where the real fighting was. And
you can't have forgotten his fi-
ance. Rita Weinberg of the Bronx,
whose picture was tacked to the
wall of the tank that Kessel car-
ried into battle, pjjing up an en-
tire column of Nazi vehicles and
baffling the Oran townsfolk..
Anyway, further news of Cor-
poral Kessel's tank, if not of Cpl-
Kessel, turned up in Rita Wein-
berg's mail box the other day.
Peter F. Hughes, of the British
North African Forces, had writ-
ten to tell her that Kessel wasn't
the only lad who found Rita's
"Some months ago," Peter's
letter begin, "I took over a tank
from an American regiment. As
I was checking things over in-
side it I found on the floor by the
side of the gun a photograph,
and a very attractive one, too. I
was so struck by it (as were the
rest of my troop) that I kept it as
a lucky charm and as a reminder
of more pleasant times. Since
then it has been through severe
action with us and the only time
one of the troop was killed was
when the photograph was not
with us. For this reason I do not
want to part with it although I
know now whose it is.
"I often wondered who *Rita'
was, Rita being the name on the
back of the photograph, but little
did I think that I should ever
find out. However, a member of
my troop was recently reading
Life, an American magazine. To
his surprise he suddenly found a
copy of the photograph which he
had come to know so well. .
"If you, or Bernard, want it
back. I'll send it back, but please
send me another one, as we
regard it as lucky."
