IS FRENCH JEWS* LOT
Bern (JTA) All alien Jews
between 18 and 60 years of age
residing in the part of France
formerly occupied by Italian
troops and. now under German
occupation have been given the
choice of either working in Ger-
many at compulsory labor, or
being deported to their countries
of origin, the Neue Zuricher Zei-
tung, a Swiss newspaper, reports
this week.
"This," the paper adds, "docs
not mean that French and for-
eign Jews residing in France are
now put on the same footing as
Frenchmen who are drafted for
work in Germany. French work-
ers who are sent to Germany are
still regarded as workers and re-
ceive the same treatment as all
other foreign laborers in the
Reich. This is not the case with
the French Jews and the alien
Jews who are sent from France
to compulsory labor in Germany.
They are handed over in France
to the German authorities and
are at the mercy of the Nazis."

ious Jews of Soviet Russia and
maintain contact in their name
with Jewry all over the world."

from Pittsburgh and plans a
mass membership campaign. The
organization expects the addi-
tion of several hundred more
members in the near future.
A general letter has gone out
to persons interested, soliciting
their assistance through loan or
gifts of surplus furnishings which
they could spare the "Y." There
is an immediate need for card
tables, floor lamps, table lamps,
sofas, chairs, book cases, pictures,
games and athletic equipment.

WAR STAMPS
piGHTEEN young refugees who
** arrived here In June on the
Serpa Pinto are learning about
America under the care of the
European-Jewish Children's Aid, an
affiliate of the National Refugee
Serviceand they like It. Since
they first set foot on American soil,
life has been a strange and won-
derful adventure to them. Clean,
comfortable beds, baths with hot
water and soap, and new clothes
are only part of life's wonders. Ice
cream sodas, chewing gum, and the
view of the New York skyline from
a Staten Island ferry boat are also
things worth cheering about!
These children are among ap-
proximately 100 who have come
to this country since the first of
the year on affidavits of the V. S.
Committee for the Care of Euro-
pean Children and the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee, and have been
taken under the wings of the NRS.
Like the other Jewish children
brought here, they will be placed
temporarily In approved foster
homes. until it may be possible to
reunite them with their families.
The care of refugee children ar-
riving in this country Is a major
project of the National Refugee
Service, which receives its support,
together with the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee and the United
Palestine Appeal, from the United
Jewish Appeal.

MINORITY RESPONSIBILITY
The dangers of war have served to an ex-
tent to unify the American people. A pleni-
tude of jobs has ameliorated somewhat the
passions of envy and hate induced by eco-
nomic deprivation. The Jewish people now
have the greatest opportunity they have had
in many years to build up a reservoir of good
will which will be sorely needed during the
peril-fraught post-war era.
An editorial appearing recently in a large
influential Florida newspaper, and from which
we have previously quoted, pointed out:
"In the same way that Caesar's wife,
above all women, had to be above re-
proach, so must our minorities take spe-
cial care to behave themselves and to
curb their lawless elements. Undoubtedly
it is unjust, but it is a fact, deeply rooted
in the psychology of majority peoples.
THESE INSIST ON IDENTIFYING THE MI-
NORITY INDIVIDUAL WITH THE MINOR-
TY GROUP. The minorities simply have
to reckon with this psychology and take a
little extra caie to see that their members
behave themselves with circumspection."
We're all aware that if Smith or Brown or
Jones is found guilty of Black Market activities
or unethical business practices, he is to blame
as an individual. But let a Jew be so accused
and Jews as a group are immediately casti-
gated.
II we are to survive and bring up our chil-
dren in a secure, hate-free environment, let
us each do what he can to curb those few
among us who follow practices which not only
bring discredit to themselves, but to all of us
as well.
PALESTINE TAKES PART
The news that the Yishuv in Palestine had J
set aside a "Diaspora Month" to raise one
million dollars to rescue the remaining Jews '
in Nazi-held Europe is another indication of
the growing influence of Palestinian Jewry in |
worldwide Jewish affairs. That this is done :
at a time when the dark shadow of the White i
Paper is trailing a pattern of uncertainty over
the road to complete Jewish national inde-
pendence, makes the action even more re-
markable.
Reports from Palestine indicate that all
elements in Jewish life there, othodox and non-
orthodox, poor and rich, industrialists and
workers, merchants and farmers have respond-
ed with unprecedented warmth to the project.
The Yishuv realizes, as so ably stated by
Moshe Shertok, that without a "reservoir of
newcomers" its growth and development will
be hampered and stilted.
But apart from its practical value, the ef-
fort to raise one million dollars to relieve the
Jewish tragedy in Nazi-infested Europe shows
that the Yishuv has come of age, that it pos-
sesses the dynamic power to initiate independ-
ent action.
The "Diaspora Month" is not. however, to
be evaluated merely in the light of an effort
to attain practical results. It affords us a
glimpse into the role a Jewish Homeland can
play in an hour of need and stress. It is a
manifestation of a positive aspect in Jewish
life in Palestine transcending national borders
and local interests. It gives to Jewish life in
Palestine a global meaning.
TWENTY YEARS AGO THIS WEEK
BerlinAdolph Hitler, Bavarian Fascist and
anti-Semitic leader, is waiting anxiously to
seize power in Germany as soon as the Stress-
man ministry fails, which is believed to be a
matter of days. This was revealed by one of
Hitler's associates, named Wule, at a private
conference of Hitlerites here at which he said
that when Hitler came to power there would
be a forced exodus of Jews from Germany far
surpassing the exodus from Egypt.
WashingtonA new Immigration bill which
will provide for the admission without any con-
ditions of two percent of the immigrants from
any country that came to the United States in
1890 and the admission of an additional two
percent that have relatives already here, is
being drafted by a congressional committee.
ChicagoThe central administrative board
of the B'nai B'rith has voted to appropriate
S3.500 for the relief of Jewish victims of the
earthguake which recently devastated a large
part of Japan. At the same time, it was learned
here that the Jewish community of Warsaw
has raised 5,000,000 marks for the Jews of
Japan.
BucharestProfessor Cuza and a group of
his anti-Semitic associates, supported and fin-
anced by a German monarchist group, had
planned a "putch" to take over the Rumanian
government and launch pogroms against the
Jews, according to information unearthed by
government investigators.
-TIDBITS FROM
Mhidtfy Confidential
-By PHINEAS J. BIRON-
Mr. Fred K. Shochet.
Editor. Jewish Floridian,
Miami. Florida.
Dear Freddie:
After reading your editorial en-
titled "J. E. A. Once More" in
last week's issue of The Jewish
Floridian. I was torn between
two impulses. One inclination was
to follow the advice of Thomas
Carlyle, eminent philosopher,
who said "Speech is great, but
silence is greater." The other im-
pulse was to obey the words of
a proverb which teaches us to
"be silent, or speak something
worth hearing." I have chosen to
try to follow the latter course.
Rabbi Max Shapiro, Rabbi
Moses Mescheloff. Stanley C. My-
ers. Harry Simonhoff, Benjamin
Meyers. Samuel Blank and the
writer gave up in New York re-
cently many hours, some of them
"vacation hours" with the in-
tention of benefiting Hebrew Ed-
ucation in Greater Miami. They
laid TENTATIVE plans, subject
to community approval, for Dr.
Israel Chipkin. well known Sec-
retary of the American Associa-
tion for Hebrew Education, to
visit our community to make a
survey. Dr. Chipkin. one of the
outstanding men in his field, is
qualified to study these problems
and recommend their proper so-
lution. In addition, while in New
York, some of the Miamians
above mentioned took the oppor-
tunity to interview some men
j who might be qualified to serve
as a professional director, should
;the community decide to employ
j one. for some kind of local Tal-
, mud Torah system. For fear that
play made be made upon the
| words "community approval."'
j let me hasten to explain. The
J. E. A. is the only community
! organization now seeking to
.bring order out of chaos regard-
1 ing Hebrew Education in Greater
j Miami. It is composed of repre-
sentatives from each synagogue
and temple, and men and wo-
men who have evinced interest.
Furthermore. J. E. A. is depend-
ent upon Greater Miami Jewish
Federation for funds, and surely
none will say that "Federation"
is not representative of the com-
munity.
In my humble judgment, the
acts of these men while in New
York deserve commendation ra-
ther than censure. But. as I ga-
ther from your article, upon our
return to Miami, it was a fore-
gone conclusion that we would
"go off half cocked" on Thurs-
day. September 17 at a meeting
of the J. E. A. So you published
your editorial the following day
to caution us not to do so. You
pointed out many problems that
remain unsolved. You held us up
to public scorn because you sav
"this organization has not lived
up to its agreements." You ques-
tion whether there is a J. E. A.
nay. you make the direct state-
ment that we are "an education
association but the figment of
imagination emanating from a
left-over embryonic skeleton of
former attempts." We are accused
of failing to realize that "just any
old plan will not have the sup-
port nor can it be pressured into
the laps of any synagogue or
temple." Space does not permit
a detailed discussion of your edi-
torial. Although best forgotten.
I have quoted some of your
words, to better bring home the
point of this letter. I am interest-
ed in the success of THE JEW-
ISH FLORIDIAN. I want it to
be a force for progress of Great-
er Miami. I want it to have the
confidence and the admiration of
the community. But, Freddie.

BITS OF IMPORT
On a recent rip to Canada we observed that anti-Sem
ism there has found consistent exponents in various Fren t
Canadian humorous newspapers and journals ... On <
the worst offenders in this respect is Le Bavard (The Gos*
which regularly publishes a special column called "]*Ji v
Stories of the Week" These stories are invariably of th
Streicher type of anti-Semitic "humor" The New York

some reactionary elements carried on an outrageouswhu
ering campaign against the Post That campaiqn &

Semitic nature Don't miss Joe Brainin's expose of th
anti-Semitic background of the present Polish government

some Jewish leaders won't like the piece.
SIGNS OF THE TIMES
When the war started the Nazis placed huge contract!
with the Swedish stone industry for blocks of red, black and
gray granite, which they planned to use for the post-war
construction of monuments and buildings to commemorate
the expected Nazi victory Now the Swedish quarries
have been notified by the Germans to cut no more of these
blocks Could be the Nazis aren't so sure they'll be able
to use them? ... To Benny Rubin is credited the tale ol
how Hitler phoned Hirohito to check on how the war wai
going in his part of the world ... To Adolf's question the
Mikado replied: "Oh. it's going much better here" "Same
here," came back Hitler, "much better than next year."
ARTISTIC WORLD
The Jewish delegation from the Soviet Union, which will
be on its way to England by the time you read this, had a
most interesting time in Hollywood Professor Solomon
Michoels spent a few hours with Charlie Chaplin and told
him all about the Soviet interpretation of the various Chap
lin films ... So amazed was Charlie by this revelation of
the social significance of his own work that he had a stenog-
rapher take down all of Michoels' statements for future pub-
lication It's over a year since the sudden death of
Emanuel Feuermann, one of the greatest 'cellists of our age,

TIE HJHFEIEIEE
By LOUIS HEIMAN
Press Representative of The Jewish Floridian
Continued from Last Week
"Can there be any question that we have a
ight to hope for and expect the victorious United
lotions, in the name of justice and humanity, to
aake Palestine available to the greatest extent pos-
ble to those of our people who desire to make it
*eir Homeland?" By closing his remarks regard-
ag Palestine, Monsky said: "There are different
joints of view in this Conference with respect to
Palestine. The diversity of opinion runs the whole
pourse, from the minimum which subscribes to the
upport of Palestine as a haven of refuge and as a
piritual and cultural center, to the maximum rep-
resented by the concept of a Jewish State in Pales-
tine. The description of the minimum brought forth
Vily silence. Monsky "brought down the house"
irhen he described the maximum.
Monsky was followed by Dr. Stephen S. Wise,
3i the American Jewish Congress. He began: "This
an AMERICAN Conference. We are Americans,
_st, last and all the time. We and our fathers
chose to be, and now choose to abide as Ameri-
cans. One hundred generations have chosen that
we be Jews, and for another hundred and more
jenerations, our children and children's children
111 choose to be heirs of the Jewish future." Dr.
/ise declared that only 3,000,000 of the 8,000,000
lews who formerly lived in Europe survive today
ind that further delays would mean that there
rould be no Jews left to save. He demanded the
jnmediate rescue of the remainder. "No act of re-
lief on the part of the United Nations will seem
lincere or be worthwhile as long as the gates of
Palestine threaten to close. Whatever we may hope
ind plan is to be the future status of Palestine, and
-lere may be room for discussion, its gates must
ot be closed." He proposed the appointment of a
nail delegation from the Conference to seek an
_adience with President Roosevelt to submit the
request of the American Jewish Community for im-
mediate action to rescue the remnants of European
Jewry. This proposal found few supporters among
the leaders at the Conference. These good reasons
were given for their non support (1) Roosevelt was
men busy with Churchill in war parleys. (2) It
might embarrass the President. (3) A non-comital
or adverse statement by the President would do
great harm. (4) The President might request that no
resolutions be passed and his request would have
to be honored or his displeasure incurred. The sug-
gestion of Dr. Wise, being found impracticable, it
f was not adopted.
Judge Joseph M. Proskauer, of the American
Jewish Committee, followed Dr. Stephen S. Wise. It
was well known that the American Jewish Com-
mittee was opposed to the Zionist ideal of a Jewish
Commonwealth in Palestine. Speaking of how to
accomplish unity among the delegates, he said: "I
suggest, my brethren, that the method should be in
the first instance that we emphasize not our differ-
ences but our agreements, and that we base our
action not on the conflicts but on the great concords
and the great achievements of American Jewry."
After stating some of the things upon which all
were agreed, he departed from his prepared ad-
dress to say: "We can reach agreement on the
proposition that the gates of Palestine be kept
open." This surprising statement, coming from one
of the leaders of the American Jewish Committee,
was undoubtedly caused by the sentiments of the
delegates, expressed through their applause, while
Monsky and Wise were addressing the Conference.
But, it was apparent from the remarks of Proskauer,
that if the Conference adopted the resolution for a
Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine, the American
Jewish Committee would have no recourse except
to withdraw from the Conference. In fact, this threat
was common knowledge among all those present.
It set the stage for the next evening when the Zion-
ists had their day, principally to reply to the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee. I will make that unforget-
table evening the subject of my next article.
Service Stripes: Doris Blumberg, the daughter
of Universal's president, is preparing herself as a
nurses' aid at the General Hospital after which
she will be sent to the new Government hospital
near L. A. ,
Sign in a Hollywood Boulevard window: This
store will be closed the day of Hitler's funeral."
Which brings to mind Harry Hershfield's story of
Ginsberg's dream. Ginsberg had a beautiful dream
he was attending Hitler's funeral. By his side
stood his little son, Morris. They beamed happily
as the procession passed. Then suddenly the hearse
appeared, and Ginsberg lifted his hand and slap-
ped Morris very hard. "Oh!" cried the boy. "why
did you hit me?" "I want you shall never forget
Hitler's funeral."
WITH THE JEWS IN SPORTS
By MORRIS WEFNER
Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.
THE HANDBALL MONOPOLY
For the last 20 years, the one wall handball
championship both in the singles and doubles
events have been held by Jewish athletes Only
in the Westwhere the four wall game holds sway
are the number of Jews in title positions rather
weak But recently, when the one wall title
matches were held, a complete new batch of cham-
pions were crowned and once again all winners
were Jewish athletes.
Victor Herschkowitz and Moe Orenstein became
the winners and new champions when the title-
holders of the National Handball Championships
failed to repeat. Victor and Moe defeated the for-
mer champs Morton Alexander and Marvin Hecht
in the quarter finals and then went on to defeat
Joe Garber and Nick Shinkarikthe favoritesin
the finals.
Morton Alexander is a brother of Seymour Alex-
ander, the one man in the game who held the one-
wall singles championship over the greatest period
of years. In Sy's eight year reign he won some 376
consecutive matches. Morton later learned the se-
cret of his brother's success when he perfected a
two hand hook. The "serve" in the one-wall game
is considered the major part of the battle and so
these handball enthusiasts perfect services in which
the ball hits the wall and rebounds very low. On
its first bounce off the wall it takes a weird spin
either to the right or the left and is most difficult
to retrieve.
Even more so than basketball, the game of one-
wall handball is virtually a Jewish monopoly. Many
reasons for this capture of a game have been ad-
vanced although the best one, we think, is the fact
that the greatest number of Jews are concentrated
along the Eastern seaboard where, coincidentally
enough, there are most of the seaside resorts and
accordingly more handball courts per square mile
than any other part of the country.
As we've said before, only in the Westwhere
many of our more prosperous athletic clubs are
situated, does the game of four wall handball thrive
... Joe Platak, of the Olympic Club in Los Angeles
has been the perennial champ at this game for
years ... He is one of the few Jewish athletes out-
standing in this particular sport division.
001 JEWISH FILM FOLK
BY HELEN HGMOND
Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc.
All film newspapers are carrying banner ads
from every studio boosting the Third War Loan.
Cleverest idea was suggested by Eddie Cantor. It
displayed representatives of civilian life, the moth-
er, the worker, the children, on one side mem-
bers of the military, the sailor, soldier, flyer, etc.,
on the other side and facsimiles of War Bonds
in the center. The caption read, "There's a Bond
Between Us!"
Warners' ad was also outstandingly original.
The elongated letters of the words Third War Loan
formed a jail-like cage out of which peered the
unhappy faces of Hitler and Tojo.
Waste-Hasket Harvest: Immediately following
the Italian capitulation, producers called hurried
confabs to consider or to junk stories that are or
soon will be outdated by the swift march of events.
Many a Hitler yarn will dissolve in an ashcan in-
stead of revolve in a film can. The general con-
sensus is that Adolph will suddenly be swallowed
up by his generals and disappear as did Doochie.
In Cairo Jack Benny was the entertainer for a
party hosted by King Farouk. The guests were 500
wounded American soldiers. Latest word from Ben-
ny is of his plane landing in Iran after circling the
airport for hours in a dust storm. Benny's itinerary
is designed to take him to the most out-of-the-way
encampments of the armed forces.
Good Neighbor Service: During the Quebec con-
ference, the American delegation wished to recip-
rocate in part the hospitality of the Canadians.
Someone had the bright thought that a showing of
"This Is The Army" would be an agreeable gesture.
But not a print was to be had in the Dominion.
S. O. S. flashed to the California studioan express
plane shot the film to Washingtona U. S. bomber

Convention Echoes: The annual convention of
the Zionist Organization of America, which took
place at Columbus, Ohio, was the most peaceful
Zionist conclave ever held in this country The
only dissatisfaction expressed by the delegates was
over the technical arrangements The hall in
the hotel where the convention took place could
hardly seat the 1,000 delegates, and there was cer-
tainly no place for guests There were mixed
feelings over President Roosevelt's greeting to the
convention Some delegates were satisfied with
the fact that a message from Roosevelt had ar-
rived in which American Jews were encouraged
to continue their efforts for the Jewish national home
in Palestine Others thought this message too
vague The real Zionist leaders, however, were
happy over the President's message since they
were not certain that Roosevelt would send any
word to the convention ... For the last few months
Zionists have been trying in vain to secure a state-
ment from President Roosevelt on Palestine The
President's silence was broken with his message
to the convention The fact that the President
emphasized that he sent his greetings in reply to
a request to this effect puzzled many delegates
... It is the first time that Roosevelt included such
a phrase in sending greetings to a Jewish gather-
ing Many delegates were also puzzled by the
absence from the convention of Rabbi Stephen S.
Wise, who was scheduled to be one of the princi-
pal speakers Officially his absence was ex-
plained as due to sudden illness, but this explana-
tion did not sound convincing to many who thought
that Rabbi Wise's "illness" was of a political na-
ture Credit must be given to Herman Shulman
and Emanuel Neumann, the two co-chairmen of
the political committee at the convention, for the
excellent political resolution which the convention
adopted and which supplements in many respects
the resolution on Palestine adopted by the Amer-
ican Jewish Conference.
Between Covers: Martin Panzer who is "tickling
the news" in the Anglo-Jewish press has now pub-
lished a new book entitled "It's Your Future" .
It is one of those books that test your intelligence
and tell you what to do to make the most of your
life ... It is well written and has human interest
appeal, since most people are interested in self-
analysis ... At present working for the United
Jewish Appeal, Mr. Panzer was associate editor of
"Psychology Magazine" This explains his writ-
ing a book on personality adjustment Pub-
lished by Whittlesey House, the book is described
as "self help without self delusion" An interest-
ing book on anti-Semitic groups in the United States
will be published next month by Random House .
It's title is "See What I Mean" and it's author is
Lewis Browne The book deals fictionally with
the subversive movements which flourished before
Pearl Harbor and which, the author says, are now
quiescent but still a potential menace Based on
actual testimony presented before the grand jury,
which resulted in the indictment of about thirty
persons, the book traces the growth of movements,
which in themselves seemed only disgusting nui-
sances, into a menace of the first order ... It is a
study of how anti-Semitic cults became active and
powerful fifth columnists.
The Jewish Theatre: Who said that the Yiddish
theatre is dying in America? ... At the annual
meeting of the Jewish Actors Union I heard Mr. Reu-
ben Guskin, the pillar of the organization, announce
that no less than ten Yiddish theatres will be opened
this season in New York Chicago will have a
Yiddish theatre, too ... It is also possible that Yid-
dish theatres will be opened in Detroit, Cleveland,
Los Angeles, Boston and Philadelphia What
puzzled me is how come that cities like Philadel-
phia, Los Angeles and the others have no Yiddish
theatre at present when the Jewish population there
is sufficiently large to patronize more than one such
theatre .' It does no credit to the Jewish cultural
leaders in these cities if they do not realize the
necessity of maintaining a Jewish theatre there .
And what about such cities as Toronto and Mon-
treal? Why should the Jews of Canada have no
Jewish theatre at all? ... It was gratifying to hear
at the meeting the pledge given by the Jewish ac-
tors to help financially in the rebuilding of the
Jewish theatre in Europe after the war And this
at a time when of the 310 members in the Jewish
Actors Union, 110 are unemployed The most
remarkable thing about the Jwish Actors Union is
that while suffering from unemployment, it never-
theless admitted this year sixty new applicants
. This is more than any labor union can boast
of. Usually no union accepts new members when
the shadow of unemployment hovers over it

Vacations in the country are now being arranged by the National
Refugee Service for needy refugee children like the group above.
Some mutt have country air and sunshine for their health* take;
vacations for other* will enable hard-pressed emigre parents to com.
plete training for war jobs which will make them useful, self-support-

Lt. Bernard J. Melman. 22, of
Waco, Texas, on duty in the Far
East has been awarded a Silver
Star for "gallantry in the face of
an enemy air raid." He was still
a sergeant at the time of the raid

I valor which earned him a deco-
Stanley W. Platkin. son of Mr. ration. Enemy bombers were re-
and Mrs. Edward A. Platkin, of ported nearing a South China
base and Melman was in the ra-
dio tower at the time. Instruct-
ed to leave the tower to seek
cover at the alternate control
room, he grimly stayed at his post
to make sure all planes were in
the air, aiding in getting the
fighter planes off to pursue the
enemy bombers by now just
about over the field. He was in
the midst of giving radio instruc-
tions, when the tower was badly
hit and put out of commission.
Melman waited for the bombing

nate control room to direct the
fighters aloft "Through his ef-

The only Mohammedan soldier
at Camp Blanding, Fla., has found
provision for his spiritual needs
through the offices of Chaplain
Charles S. Freeman, Jewish chap-
lain at Blanding. The soldier is
Pvl. Richard Hamasse. He ap-
pealed to Chaplain Freedman to
allow him to attend Jewish ser-
vices at the post. Since the He-
brew and Arabic languages are
basically similar, Pvt. Hamasse
felt he could get a good deal out
of the services.
Chaplain Freedman gladly
granted the requestand went
further than that. He arranged
a meeting between the private
and an Orthodox family in Jack-
sonville who readily consented
to help the Mohammedan soldier
maintain the dietary require-
ments of his creed whenever he s
in that city on week-end pass.
Mohammedan and Jewish dietary
laws are not dissimilar.
Private Hamasse said he felt
sure he could turn to Jewish peo-
ple for help because he has been
helped by them before. For sev-
en years the Hamasse family
lived in Miami. Here, also, res-
idents of Jewish faith gave them
religious assistance.

On Tuesday evening, October
26, the Y. M. H. A. will conduct
a Post Holiday Dance at the
Coral Gables Country Club. Cy
Washburn and his orchestra will
furnish the music. Larry Gross-
berg has been appointed chair-
man of this affair.
Registration For Spanish Classes

At a meeting of the Board of
Directors held last Wednesday
evening, it was decided to con-
duct Spanish classes at the "Y."
A teacher has been engaged and
registrations are now being taken
at the "Y" office. The fee is 25c
per lesson for members and 50c
per lesson for non-members. All
those interested are urged to reg-
ister immediately as memberships
in these classes will be limited.
Children's Activities Begun
Twenty-five children register-
ed last Monday for Fall activities
for children. This is a very en-
couraging number and each child
has promised to procure at least
one additional friend by next
week. Presently, the activities
for the children are: arts and
crafts, athletic and sport activi-
ties and dramatics.
Parents of children are urged
to send them here for diversified
and supervised play.
L
YEAR OF SERVICE
Harofe Haivri (The Hebrew
Medical Journal) which is dedi-
cated to the continued growth of
Hebrew medical literature, has
reached its sixteenth year of suc-
cessful publication, under the
editorship of Dr. Moses Einhorn,
of New York. With the passing
of the years, Harofe Haivri has
maintained its high standard of
service to the medical profession,
and has won the esteem of doc-
tors and laymen throughout the
world.
It has become customary for
the Hebrew Medical Journal to
present in each issue a Sympo-
sium on problems closely related
to the Jewish people. The sym-
posia dealing with Diabetes and
Peripheral Vascular Diseases
Among Jews has aroused consid-
erable interest. The current an-
niversary number contains a
Symposium on War Medicine,
with significant, timely articles
by prominent Jewish physicians,
some of whom are veterans of
the first World War.
SHELVE DISCUSSIONS
ON PALESTINE TALK
Washington (WNS) The pro-
posed Anglo-American statement
prescribing all discussions of the
Palestine issue for the duration
of the war has been shelved, ac-
cording to reliable information
reaching Zionist leaders here this
week.
The statement, a draft of
which was reported to have been
on President Roosevelt's desk for
approval when Dr. Stephen S.
Wise called on the Chief Execu-
tive sometime ago, would have
been a severe blow to the Zion-
ist cause. Its postponment was
due to representations made by
the American Emergency Com-
mittee for Zionist Affairs.
Long active In organized effort*
toward racial good-will, Joseph C.
Hyman, Executive Vice-Chairman
of the Joint Distribution Commit-
tee, has been appointed by Gover-
nor Dewey to the New ork State
War Council Committee on Dis-
crimination.
Washington (JTA) Justice
Samuel Rosenman of the New
York State Supreme Court has
resigned his post to become le-
gal adviser to President Roose-
velt, the President announced at
his press conference this week.
In making the announcement,
Roosevelt said Judge Rosenman
would assist him in the growing
volume of quasi-legal matters.
JEWISH INDUCTEES TO
BE DEFERRED 2 DAYS
_Major T. A. Daly, Adjutant of
the Second Service Command ad-
vised the Synagogue Council of
America that a two day defer-
ment of call to duty has been au-
thorized for Jews who were to
be inducted on the High Holy
Days, in order to permit them
to observe these days with prop-
er devotion. Those draftees who
are scheduled to be called to ac-
tive duty on the 30th of Septem-
ber and on the 1st and 9th of Oc-
tober will be called instead on
the 2nd. 4th and 11th of October
respectively.
This provision was made by
the recruiting authorities in re-
sponse to the Synagogue Coun-
cil's request and in recognition
of the importance of religious
observance in military as well as
in civilian life.

Why Not Think of the
Last Thing First?
WHEN A LOSS OCCURS IN THE FAMILY
BE COMFORTED IN KNOWING THAT
I AM PREPARED!
Maybe you feel that you have already provided adequate burial
protection for your familyby paying dues to some organization
which offers burial spaceBut such organization usually scatter
families in different cemeteries instead of keeping them together
in one place.
The only sure way to keep the entire family together forever, is
by having your own private family plot. And having your plot in
Mount Nebo assures you of this protection in the finest surround-
ings at a reasonable cost.
NOW is the time to select a family plot in Mount Nebo Cemetery
Before need. This beautiful cemetery is dedicated exclusively
to those of the Jewish faith.

B'nai B'rith has sold $250,000
in War Bonds with $150,000
more to go before another bomb-
er will come off the assembly
line ear-marked as having been
purchased through the efforts of
that organization.
And as is the case with all
drives, after the initial spurt is
over, the hard part of the drive
ia reached the extra effort to
put the drive over the top. So
it is with the Third War Loan
10 of the 15 billion dollars in
War Bonds have been sold, but
it will be harder to get the bal-
ance of 5 billion necessary to
fill the national quota, than to
sell the first 10 billion. And in
the county, there is wailing that
we will t;ill short of the Dado
County quota of S26.000.000.
it is important that Dadc
County fill its quota because that
will help the Third War Loan.
By buying through B'nai B'rith
we can help fill the county quo-
ta, as well as get that extra
bomber. During the last drive
we sold close to a million dol-
lars in bonds, and during this
drive we must go over that mil-
lion dollar mark.

)AY. SEPTEMBER 24, 1943 +Jewlsti fhrkUan PAGE FIVE TIE HJHFEIEIEE By LOUIS HEIMAN Press Representative of The Jewish Floridian Continued from Last Week "Can there be any question that we have a ight to hope for and expect the victorious United lotions, in the name of justice and humanity, to aake Palestine available to the greatest extent posble to those of our people who desire to make it *eir Homeland?" By closing his remarks regardag Palestine, Monsky said: "There are different joints of view in this Conference with respect to Palestine. The diversity of opinion runs the whole pourse, from the minimum which subscribes to the upport of Palestine as a haven of refuge and as a piritual and cultural center, to the maximum represented by the concept of a Jewish State in Palestine. The description of the minimum brought forth Vily silence. Monsky "brought down the house" irhen he described the maximum. Monsky was followed by Dr. Stephen S. Wise, 3i the American Jewish Congress. He began: "This an AMERICAN Conference. We are Americans, _st, last and all the time. We and our fathers chose to be, and now choose to abide as Americans. One hundred generations have chosen that we be Jews, and for another hundred and more jenerations, our children and children's children 111 choose to be heirs of the Jewish future." Dr. /ise declared that only 3,000,000 of the 8,000,000 lews who formerly lived in Europe survive today ind that further delays would mean that there rould be no Jews left to save. He demanded the jnmediate rescue of the remainder. "No act of relief on the part of the United Nations will seem lincere or be worthwhile as long as the gates of Palestine threaten to close. Whatever we may hope ind plan is to be the future status of Palestine, and -lere may be room for discussion, its gates must ot be closed." He proposed the appointment of a nail delegation from the Conference to seek an _adience with President Roosevelt to submit the request of the American Jewish Community for immediate action to rescue the remnants of European Jewry. This proposal found few supporters among the leaders at the Conference. These good reasons were given for their non support (1) Roosevelt was men busy with Churchill in war parleys. (2) It might embarrass the President. (3) A non-comital or adverse statement by the President would do great harm. (4) The President might request that no resolutions be passed and his request would have to be honored or his displeasure incurred. The suggestion of Dr. Wise, being found impracticable, it f was not adopted. Judge Joseph M. Proskauer, of the American Jewish Committee, followed Dr. Stephen S. Wise. It was well known that the American Jewish Committee was opposed to the Zionist ideal of a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine. Speaking of how to accomplish unity among the delegates, he said: "I suggest, my brethren, that the method should be in the first instance that we emphasize not our differences but our agreements, and that we base our action not on the conflicts but on the great concords and the great achievements of American Jewry." After stating some of the things upon which all were agreed, he departed from his prepared address to say: "We can reach agreement on the proposition that the gates of Palestine be kept open." This surprising statement, coming from one of the leaders of the American Jewish Committee, was undoubtedly caused by the sentiments of the delegates, expressed through their applause, while Monsky and Wise were addressing the Conference. But, it was apparent from the remarks of Proskauer, that if the Conference adopted the resolution for a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine, the American Jewish Committee would have no recourse except to withdraw from the Conference. In fact, this threat was common knowledge among all those present. It set the stage for the next evening when the Zionists had their day, principally to reply to the American Jewish Committee. I will make that unforgettable evening the subject of my next article. Service Stripes: Doris Blumberg, the daughter of Universal's president, is preparing herself as a nurses' aid at the General Hospital after which she will be sent to the new Government hospital near L. A. Sign in a Hollywood Boulevard window: This store will be closed the day of Hitler's funeral." Which brings to mind Harry Hershfield's story of Ginsberg's dream. Ginsberg had a beautiful dream —he was attending Hitler's funeral. By his side stood his little son, Morris. They beamed happily as the procession passed. Then suddenly the hearse appeared, and Ginsberg lifted his hand and slapped Morris very hard. "Oh!" cried the boy. "why did you hit me?" "I want you shall never forget Hitler's funeral." WITH THE JEWS IN SPORTS By MORRIS WEFNER Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc. THE HANDBALL MONOPOLY For the last 20 years, the one wall handball championship both in the singles and doubles events have been held by Jewish athletes Only in the West—where the four wall game holds sway —are the number of Jews in title positions rather weak But recently, when the one wall title matches were held, a complete new batch of champions were crowned and once again all winners were Jewish athletes. Victor Herschkowitz and Moe Orenstein became the winners and new champions when the titleholders of the National Handball Championships failed to repeat. Victor and Moe defeated the former champs Morton Alexander and Marvin Hecht in the quarter finals and then went on to defeat Joe Garber and Nick Shinkarik—the favorites—in the finals. Morton Alexander is a brother of Seymour Alexander, the one man in the game who held the onewall singles championship over the greatest period of years. In Sy's eight year reign he won some 376 consecutive matches. Morton later learned the secret of his brother's success when he perfected a two hand hook. The "serve" in the one-wall game is considered the major part of the battle and so these handball enthusiasts perfect services in which the ball hits the wall and rebounds very low. On its first bounce off the wall it takes a weird spin either to the right or the left and is most difficult to retrieve. Even more so than basketball, the game of onewall handball is virtually a Jewish monopoly. Many reasons for this capture of a game have been advanced although the best one, we think, is the fact that the greatest number of Jews are concentrated along the Eastern seaboard where, coincidentally enough, there are most of the seaside resorts and accordingly more handball courts per square mile than any other part of the country. As we've said before, only in the West—where many of our more prosperous athletic clubs are situated, does the game of four wall handball thrive ... Joe Platak, of the Olympic Club in Los Angeles has been the perennial champ at this game for years ... He is one of the few Jewish athletes outstanding in this particular sport division. 001 JEWISH FILM FOLK BY HELEN HGMOND Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc. All film newspapers are carrying banner ads from every studio boosting the Third War Loan. Cleverest idea was suggested by Eddie Cantor. It displayed representatives of civilian life, the mother, the worker, the children, on one side members of the military, the sailor, soldier, flyer, etc., on the other side and facsimiles of War Bonds in the center. The caption read, "There's a Bond Between Us!" Warners' ad was also outstandingly original. The elongated letters of the words Third War Loan formed a jail-like cage out of which peered the unhappy faces of Hitler and Tojo. Waste-Hasket Harvest: Immediately following the Italian capitulation, producers called hurried confabs to consider or to junk stories that are or soon will be outdated by the swift march of events. Many a Hitler yarn will dissolve in an ashcan instead of revolve in a film can. The general consensus is that Adolph will suddenly be swallowed up by his generals and disappear as did Doochie. In Cairo Jack Benny was the entertainer for a party hosted by King Farouk. The guests were 500 wounded American soldiers. Latest word from Benny is of his plane landing in Iran after circling the airport for hours in a dust storm. Benny's itinerary is designed to take him to the most out-of-the-way encampments of the armed forces. Good Neighbor Service: During the Quebec conference, the American delegation wished to reciprocate in part the hospitality of the Canadians. Someone had the bright thought that a showing of "This Is The Army" would be an agreeable gesture. But not a print was to be had in the Dominion. S. O. S. flashed to the California studio—an express plane shot the film to Washington—a U. S. bomber carried it to Quebec. It arrived 20 minutes before curtain time. "Looks like we're changing the German Air Force to the German Air Farce," whirls Berle. BETWEEN YOU IND ME BY BORIS SMOLAR Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency Inc. Convention Echoes: The annual convention of the Zionist Organization of America, which took place at Columbus, Ohio, was the most peaceful Zionist conclave ever held in this country The only dissatisfaction expressed by the delegates was over the technical arrangements The hall in the hotel where the convention took place could hardly seat the 1,000 delegates, and there was certainly no place for guests There were mixed feelings over President Roosevelt's greeting to the convention Some delegates were satisfied with the fact that a message from Roosevelt had arrived in which American Jews were encouraged to continue their efforts for the Jewish national home in Palestine Others thought this message too vague The real Zionist leaders, however, were happy over the President's message since they were not certain that Roosevelt would send any word to the convention ... For the last few months Zionists have been trying in vain to secure a statement from President Roosevelt on Palestine The President's silence was broken with his message to the convention The fact that the President emphasized that he sent his greetings in reply to a request to this effect puzzled many delegates ... It is the first time that Roosevelt included such a phrase in sending greetings to a Jewish gathering Many delegates were also puzzled by the absence from the convention of Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, who was scheduled to be one of the principal speakers Officially his absence was explained as due to sudden illness, but this explanation did not sound convincing to many who thought that Rabbi Wise's "illness" was of a political nature Credit must be given to Herman Shulman and Emanuel Neumann, the two co-chairmen of the political committee at the convention, for the excellent political resolution which the convention adopted and which supplements in many respects the resolution on Palestine adopted by the American Jewish Conference. Between Covers: Martin Panzer who is "tickling the news" in the Anglo-Jewish press has now published a new book entitled "It's Your Future" It is one of those books that test your intelligence and tell you what to do to make the most of your life ... It is well written and has human interest appeal, since most people are interested in selfanalysis ... At present working for the United Jewish Appeal, Mr. Panzer was associate editor of "Psychology Magazine" This explains his writing a book on personality adjustment Published by Whittlesey House, the book is described as "self help without self delusion" An interesting book on anti-Semitic groups in the United States will be published next month by Random House It's title is "See What I Mean" and it's author is Lewis Browne The book deals fictionally with the subversive movements which flourished before Pearl Harbor and which, the author says, are now quiescent but still a potential menace Based on actual testimony presented before the grand jury, which resulted in the indictment of about thirty persons, the book traces the growth of movements, which in themselves seemed only disgusting nuisances, into a menace of the first order ... It is a study of how anti-Semitic cults became active and powerful fifth columnists. The Jewish Theatre: Who said that the Yiddish theatre is dying in America? ... At the annual meeting of the Jewish Actors Union I heard Mr. Reuben Guskin, the pillar of the organization, announce that no less than ten Yiddish theatres will be opened this season in New York Chicago will have a Yiddish theatre, too ... It is also possible that Yiddish theatres will be opened in Detroit, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Boston and Philadelphia What puzzled me is how come that cities like Philadelphia, Los Angeles and the others have no Yiddish theatre at present when the Jewish population there is sufficiently large to patronize more than one such theatre .' It does no credit to the Jewish cultural leaders in these cities if they do not realize the necessity of maintaining a Jewish theatre there And what about such cities as Toronto and Montreal? Why should the Jews of Canada have no Jewish theatre at all? ... It was gratifying to hear at the meeting the pledge given by the Jewish actors to help financially in the rebuilding of the Jewish theatre in Europe after the war And this at a time when of the 310 members in the Jewish Actors Union, 110 are unemployed The most remarkable thing about the Jwish Actors Union is that while suffering from unemployment, it nevertheless admitted this year sixty new applicants This is more than any labor union can boast of. Usually no union accepts new members when the shadow of unemployment hovers over it Oil

And as is the case with all drives, after the initial spurt is over, the hard part of the drive ia reached — the extra effort to put the drive over the top. So it is with the Third War Loan— 10 of the 15 billion dollars in War Bonds have been sold, but it will be harder to get the balance of 5 billion necessary to fill the national quota, than to sell the first 10 billion. And in the county, there is wailing that we will t;ill short of the Dado County quota of S26.000.000. it is important that Dadc County fill its quota because that will help the Third War Loan. By buying through B'nai B'rith we can help fill the county quota, as well as get that extra bomber. During the last drive we sold close to a million dollars in bonds, and during this drive we must go over that million dollar mark.

The statement, a draft of which was reported to have been on President Roosevelt's desk for approval when Dr. Stephen S. Wise called on the Chief Executive sometime ago, would have been a severe blow to the Zionist cause.

"This," the paper adds, "docs not mean that French and foreign Jews residing in France are now put on the same footing as Frenchmen who are drafted for work in Germany. French workers who are sent to Germany are still regarded as workers and receive the same treatment as all other foreign laborers in the Reich. This is not the case with the French Jews and the alien Jews who are sent from France to compulsory labor in Germany. They are handed over in France to the German authorities and are at the mercy of the Nazis."

BOX 2973 PHONE 2-1141 One Year, $2.00 Six Months, $1.00 Entered as Second Class Matter July 4, 1940, at MIAMI, FLA., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24. 1943 the Post Office of Miami, Florida, under ELLUL 24. 5703 the Act of March 3, 1879 VOLUME 16 NUMBER 39 MINORITY RESPONSIBILITY The dangers of war have served to an extent to unify the American people. A plenitude of jobs has ameliorated somewhat the passions of envy and hate induced by economic deprivation. The Jewish people now have the greatest opportunity they have had in many years to build up a reservoir of good will which will be sorely needed during the peril-fraught post-war era. An editorial appearing recently in a large influential Florida newspaper, and from which we have previously quoted, pointed out: "In the same way that Caesar's wife, above all women, had to be above reproach, so must our minorities take special care to behave themselves and to curb their lawless elements. Undoubtedly it is unjust, but it is a fact, deeply rooted in the psychology of majority peoples. THESE INSIST ON IDENTIFYING THE MINORITY INDIVIDUAL WITH THE MINORTY GROUP. The minorities simply have to reckon with this psychology and take a little extra caie to see that their members behave themselves with circumspection." We're all aware that if Smith or Brown or Jones is found guilty of Black Market activities or unethical business practices, he is to blame as an individual. But let a Jew be so accused and Jews as a group are immediately castigated. II we are to survive and bring up our children in a secure, hate-free environment, let us each do what he can to curb those few among us who follow practices which not only bring discredit to themselves, but to all of us as well. PALESTINE TAKES PART The news that the Yishuv in Palestine had J set aside a "Diaspora Month" to raise one million dollars to rescue the remaining Jews in Nazi-held Europe is another indication of the growing influence of Palestinian Jewry in | worldwide Jewish affairs. That this is done : at a time when the dark shadow of the White i Paper is trailing a pattern of uncertainty over the road to complete Jewish national independence, makes the action even more remarkable. Reports from Palestine indicate that all elements in Jewish life there, othodox and nonorthodox, poor and rich, industrialists and workers, merchants and farmers have responded with unprecedented warmth to the project. The Yishuv realizes, as so ably stated by Moshe Shertok, that without a "reservoir of newcomers" its growth and development will be hampered and stilted. But apart from its practical value, the effort to raise one million dollars to relieve the Jewish tragedy in Nazi-infested Europe shows that the Yishuv has come of age, that it possesses the dynamic power to initiate independent action. The "Diaspora Month" is not. however, to be evaluated merely in the light of an effort to attain practical results. It affords us a glimpse into the role a Jewish Homeland can play in an hour of need and stress. It is a manifestation of a positive aspect in Jewish life in Palestine transcending national borders and local interests. It gives to Jewish life in Palestine a global meaning. TWENTY YEARS AGO THIS WEEK Berlin—Adolph Hitler, Bavarian Fascist and anti-Semitic leader, is waiting anxiously to seize power in Germany as soon as the Stressman ministry fails, which is believed to be a matter of days. This was revealed by one of Hitler's associates, named Wule, at a private conference of Hitlerites here at which he said that when Hitler came to power there would be a forced exodus of Jews from Germany far surpassing the exodus from Egypt. Washington—A new Immigration bill which will provide for the admission without any conditions of two percent of the immigrants from any country that came to the United States in 1890 and the admission of an additional two percent that have relatives already here, is being drafted by a congressional committee. Chicago—The central administrative board of the B'nai B'rith has voted to appropriate S3.500 for the relief of Jewish victims of the earthguake which recently devastated a large part of Japan. At the same time, it was learned here that the Jewish community of Warsaw has raised 5,000,000 marks for the Jews of Japan. Bucharest—Professor Cuza and a group of his anti-Semitic associates, supported and financed by a German monarchist group, had planned a "putch" to take over the Rumanian government and launch pogroms against the Jews, according to information unearthed by government investigators. -TIDBITS FROM Mhidtfy Confidential -By PHINEAS J. BIRONMr. Fred K. Shochet. Editor. Jewish Floridian, Miami. Florida. Dear Freddie: After reading your editorial entitled "J. E. A. Once More" in last week's issue of The Jewish Floridian. I was torn between two impulses. One inclination was to follow the advice of Thomas Carlyle, eminent philosopher, who said "Speech is great, but silence is greater." The other impulse was to obey the words of a proverb which teaches us to "be silent, or speak something worth hearing." I have chosen to try to follow the latter course. Rabbi Max Shapiro, Rabbi Moses Mescheloff. Stanley C. Myers. Harry Simonhoff, Benjamin Meyers. Samuel Blank and the writer gave up in New York recently many hours, some of them "vacation hours" — with the intention of benefiting Hebrew Education in Greater Miami. They laid TENTATIVE plans, subject to community approval, for Dr. Israel Chipkin. well known Secretary of the American Association for Hebrew Education, to visit our community to make a survey. Dr. Chipkin. one of the outstanding men in his field, is qualified to study these problems and recommend their proper solution. In addition, while in New York, some of the Miamians above mentioned took the opportunity to interview some men j who might be qualified to serve as a professional director, should ;the community decide to employ j one. for some kind of local Tal, mud Torah system. For fear that play made be made upon the | words "community approval."' j let me hasten to explain. The J. E. A. is the only community organization now seeking to .bring order out of chaos regard1 ing Hebrew Education in Greater j Miami. It is composed of representatives from each synagogue and temple, and men and women who have evinced interest. Furthermore. J. E. A. is dependent upon Greater Miami Jewish Federation for funds, and surely none will say that "Federation" is not representative of the community. In my humble judgment, the acts of these men while in New York deserve commendation rather than censure. But. as I gather from your article, upon our return to Miami, it was a foregone conclusion that we would "go off half cocked" on Thursday. September 17 at a meeting of the J. E. A. So you published your editorial the following day to caution us not to do so. You pointed out many problems that remain unsolved. You held us up to public scorn because you sav "this organization has not lived up to its agreements." You question whether there is a J. E. A. —nay. you make the direct statement that we are "an education association but the figment of imagination emanating from a left-over embryonic skeleton of former attempts." We are accused of failing to realize that "just any old plan will not have the support nor can it be pressured into the laps of any synagogue or temple." Space does not permit a detailed discussion of your editorial. Although best forgotten. I have quoted some of your words, to better bring home the point of this letter. I am interested in the success of THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN. I want it to be a force for progress of Greater Miami. I want it to have the confidence and the admiration of the community. But, Freddie.

On < the worst offenders in this respect is Le Bavard (The Gos* which regularly publishes a special column called "]*Ji v Stories of the Week" These stories are invariably of th Streicher type of anti-Semitic "humor" The New York Post, of which Dorothy Schiff Thackery is the owner, rece £ was prevented from buying the Binghamton Press becou some reactionary elements carried on an outrageouswhu ering campaign against the Post That campaiqn & though no news report mentioned it, was of a violently anfi Semitic nature Don't miss Joe Brainin's expose of th anti-Semitic background of the present Polish government in-Exile, in the September issue of New Currents n u J some Jewish leaders won't like the piece. SIGNS OF THE TIMES When the war started the Nazis placed huge contract! with the Swedish stone industry for blocks of red, black and gray granite, which they planned to use for the post-war construction of monuments and buildings to commemorate the expected Nazi victory Now the Swedish quarries have been notified by the Germans to cut no more of these blocks Could be the Nazis aren't so sure they'll be able to use them? ...

ARTISTIC WORLD The Jewish delegation from the Soviet Union, which will be on its way to England by the time you read this, had a most interesting time in Hollywood Professor Solomon Michoels spent a few hours with Charlie Chaplin and told him all about the Soviet interpretation of the various Chap lin films ... So amazed was Charlie by this revelation of the social significance of his own work that he had a stenographer take down all of Michoels' statements for future publication It's over a year since the sudden death of Emanuel Feuermann, one of the greatest 'cellists of our age, but a new record album featuring the late virtuoso ii jot being put out by RCA Victor The album bring* yoo Beethoven's Trio No. 7. the other two artists being Alter Rubinstein at the piano and Jascha Heifetz playing the n> lin part.
