par-
Balfour Week, commemorating Road. Rabbi Moses Mecheloff I State of New York, who declared
the 26th anniversary of the issu-1 will speak on the "Effect of Pal-1 that "now, even more than after
" the last war, it is essential that
a way be found to open the doors
of Palestine."
Miss Dorothy Thompson, com-
mentator on international affairs,
asserted that the first step toward
disentanglement of the problems
of the Near East "must be a clear-
CU t division of the political
spheres of sovereignty of Jews
and Arabs," as clearly implied in
the Balfour Declaration.
Declaring that the gathering
was an occasion for "joyous re-
membrance and mournful reflec-
tion," Dr. Stephen S. Wise as-
serted that "had the British in-
stead of the Palestine government
co-operated with us, Palestine
today might in every sense be
Jewish, as President Wilson said
to me in 1918 he expected Pales-
tine again to become." He also
asserted that "if Jews of influ-
ence and power and circumstance
such as they who recently
withdrew from the American
Jewish Conference" had given
"their furtherance and their fa-
cilitation to the rebuilding of the
Jewish national home" there
"might have been a Jewish Pal-
estine today."
Dr. Goldstein, newly elected
president of the ZOA, criticized
"irresponsible" suggestions pro-
posing the transfer of Arabs from
Palestine to Iraq as unauthorized
by "any responsible Jewish body
here or abroad." He said they
"emanated" from the same irre-
sponsible elements which an-
nounced that Rumanian Jews
could be saved at $50 a head and
which recently brought hundreds
of rabbis to Washington on the
spurious assurance that the Presi-
dent would receive them.
Zionist District.
The program of activities in-
cludes late Friday evening serv-
ices dedicated by the Miami
Beach Jewish Community Cen-
ter to the district, with Rabbi
Lehrman preaching the sermon
on "Palestinea Glorious Ven-
ture." All members of the Beach
Zionist District will participate.
On Saturday, the services at
the Beth Jacob Synagogue will
carry a note of sorrow over the
plight of European Jewry, and in
ins sermon Rabbi Mescheloff will
discuss the congregation's obli-
gation and moral duty to further
the task of creating a national
Jewish homeland as a refuge and
as a guarantee against the
slaughter of innocents as wit-
nessed in the last decade.
These activities are in accord
with a message issued by the
Synagogue Council of America,
whose president. Dr. Israel Gold-
stein, said "We shall not forget
that it was the English people

highlights of a demonstration
held here at Carnegie Hall on

The meeting marked the open-
ing of a nation-wide campaign
against the British White Paper
policy in Palestine and was at-
tended by more than 3,000 people
and an overflow crowd of more
than 15,000.
Wendell Willkie stated in his

in the Balfour Declaration must

its clear intent and "underlying

IS MBSJPSTEIN
New York (JTA).Resolutions
expressing "full support" for the
American Jewish Conference and
appealing to the British people
and government to abandon the
White Paper policy were adopted
here this week at the closing ses-
sion of the 29th annual conven-
tion of the Hadassah, which elect-
ed Mrs. Moses P. Epstein presi-
dent of the organization for the
next term.
The resolution on the White-
Paper also urged the U. S. Gov-
ernment and the American pub-
lic "to add its voice" in support
of the Jewish demand. Another
resolution appeals to the "con-
science of the democratic peoples
and the governments of the
United Nations" to help bring
about the rescue of 29,000 Jewish
children in Europe for whom
certificates of entry into Palestine
have been promised by the Brit-
ish Government.
The convention adopted a
budget of $1,620,000 to be spent
during the next year for medicaL
post-war health, child welfare,
vocational education, youth, ref-
ugee and land reclamation proj-
ects. Tribute was paid by the
convention to King Christian X
of Denmark, and King Gustaf V
of Sweden for the heroism with
which their peoples have de-
fended Jewish citizens and refu-
gees in both countries against the
Nazis, by announcing the plant-
ing of two groves of trees in the
name of these monarchs in the
Holy Land.
Dr. Stephen S. Wise and Dr.
Abba Hillcl Silver of Cleveland,
co-chairmen of the American
Zionist Emergency Council, the
chief speakers at the concluding
session, concentrated upon a plea
for the abrogation of the White
Paper, which if implemented
would curtail Jewish immigra-
tion into Palestine by March,

actor and stage director, died here
this week at the age of 70.
Mr. Reinhardt was completing
the casting of an English version
of Jacques Offenbach's comic
opera "La Belle Helene" when
he first took ill three weeks ago.
After resting for several days he
returned to his task. Soon there-
after he suffered a stroke which
resulted in paralysis and double
pneumonia. For the last three
days he was completely uncon-

Old AFFAIRS OF
LOCAL CEMETERY
Rabbi S. M. Machtei, who has
lived in and served the Jewish
community of Greater Miami for
the last 13 years and intimately
familiar with the problems of the
Jewish community and of its citi-
zens, has accepted the invitation
of Mount Nebo to become its di-
rector and to administer its af-
fairs, it was announced this week
by cemetery officials.
In a statement issued at the
Mount Nebo office, 914 Olympia
Building, Rabbi Machtei said:
"Every man prides himself on be-
ing his family's champion. He
stands between them and all their
problems. He wouldn't cause
them an unnecessary moment of
anguish, the shedding of an extra
tea In fact, his life is devoted
and dedicated to sparing them
any and all anxiety, pain or an-
guish.
"In my work I have observed
the anguish of widows and of
children who were suddenly
Faced With immediate need of B
burial plot for the head of the
house. I have noted their con-
fusion because the 'provider1 had
overlooked providing a future
home for the family, in advance
of need. When Mount Nebo in-
vited me to become its managing
director, I accepted in the hope
that I could be of service to my
neighbors, for I know from ex-
perience that the emotional strain
of the family in its darkest hour
can be eased by intelligent ad-
vance planning.
"Mount Nebo fills a definite
need in the community and ren-
ders a distinctive service, re-
specting the religious scruples of
all shades in Judaism and em-
phasizing the bonds of the fam-
ily group at all times."
The burial estates of Mounf
Nebo located at West Flagler
Street and 54th Avenue, located
ten minutes from the heart of
Miami, are beautifully landscaped
and accessible by bus.

THE BALFOUR DECLARATION
'Twenty-six years ago in the midst of a world at war, the
government of the British Commonwealth of Nations, looking to
the day when peace would be restored and inspired with the
desire to right an ancient wrong, issued the Balfour Declaration.
This solemn covenant and undertaking to help in the reestab-
lishment of the Jewish National Home in Palestine was subse-
quently endorsed by 52 nations, including by unanimous reso-
lution the Congress of the United States.
They came to a land of past glory but present decay, whose
natural fertility had been destroyed by encroaching swamps
and desert sands; whose hills had been denuded of trees; and
whose cities had dwindled into mean and stagnant townships.
In the course of a pioneering achievement unequalled in pres-
ent-day colonization, they drained swamps and planted for-
ests. They irrigated the dry land, developed agriculture and
industry, and built cities.
In the years that followed, hundreds of thousands of Europe's
Jews found refuge and a home in Palestine."
It is altogether fitting as the observance of Balfour Week is
noted, that the Miami Zionist District initiated a constructive
move that will concretely aid the Zionist cause at a time when
it is needed most.
At a meeting to be held next week, a proposal to heads of
local houses of worship will be made similar to action of syn-
agogues in other parts of the country, to enroll the membership
of these institutions as a unit in the Zionist organization.
The Zionist cause faces its most difficult period in its years
of intensive effort in behalf of the National Homeland. The im-
portance and weight that the action of any group bears depends
upon its strength. In this instance numerical strength is all
important.
Dr. Stephen S. Wise, this week, at Balfour Day Meeting in
New York, aptly said:
"This is a day of joyous remembrance and of mournful re-
flection; joyous remembrance of the issuance of a great instru-
ment, a charter which after the World War gave to the Jewish
people a new hope and a new opportunity; mournful reflection
because Balfour's England has not presided over the Palestine
government throughout the more than a quarter of a century
that has passed. Too often, and most especially at this mo-
ment, the Jewish rebuilders of Palestine have had not facilita-
tion nor furtherance from that Palestine government which may
have represented the Colonial office, but has utterly misrepre-
sented the spirit of Balfour's England and the English people.
Had the British instead of the Palestine government cooperated
with us, Palestine today might in every sense be Jewish, as
President Wilson said to me in 1918 he expected Palestine
again to come.
"But one thing more remains to be said. There might have
been a Jewish Palestine today, if Jews of influence and power
and circumstance had given their furtherance and their facilita-
tion to the rebuilding of the Jewish National Home. These have
failed us but the Jewish National Home is being created. It
will be, provided the Jews of the world over deeply care and
greatly help, provided the United Nations act in the spirit of the
Atlantic Charter."
With manpower shortage as prevalent and the innumerable
additional channels in which the civic, patriotic and spiritual
minded individual must lend his efforts, makes mandatory
planning to do the most with the least effort. All the religious
organizations are firm believers in Zionism and that for which
it stands. Co-operation to effect the enrollment of the member-
ship rosters of our local institutions must be given.
Jewish Religious Education
By RABBI SIMON APRIL
Spiritual Leader Congregation Schaarei Zedik
(Kditor's Note: This iM another in a
mHm of artlclea by the Hiiiritual
loaders of fJrater Miami.)
"The fear of the Lord is the
beginning of wisdom." Psalm
111:10.
"The goal of wisdom is re-
pentance and good deeds."Tal-
mud Brachoth 17a.
Jewish religious education calls
for two things, earnest considera-
tion and concerted action. Israel's
kingdom is a kingdom of the
spirit; and Israel's history is not
a story of fire, whirlwind or
earthquake, but of the still, small
voice, the voice of conscience, the
voice of God. Religious educa-
tion alone can rear the spiritual
ramparts of that kingdom and
insure a continuity of the Jewish
spirit. "As long as the sound of
little children repeating the
Shema or Shemang is heard with-
in the walls of Jewish schools
and synagogue," say the Rabbis,
"all the Balaams and Hamans in
the world cannot prevail against
Israel." Where Jewish schools
are, alas deserted and Jewish
children are prevented from
learning the Shema. as the Ha-
mans have succeeded in doing
first in Germany, later in many
other countries, the outlook for
Israel is dark indeed. More than
to any other people or church,
religious education is a question
of life and death to the congre-
gation of Jacob.
In the past, the Jew had trans-
lated literally the words of the
Mishnah in Peoh, 1. "Talmud To-
rah K'neged Kulom" which
means that the study of the To-
rah is equal to them all; the study
of the Torah outweighs all the
ethical precepts enumerated in
that Mishnah, because the Torah
is itself the sum and concept of
all ethical law. The duty of re-
ligious education is emphasized
in the Shema ("and thou shalt
teach them diligently to thy
children") and it is thereby
placed on the same level as the
proclamation of the Unity of God
and the command, "Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with all
they soul and with all thy might."
Today more than ever before
religious education has become of
paramount. Never before has the
school been of such vital impor-
tance; the school of today will
decide the future of our race.
Within a few years our youth
will be men and women If, in
their case, the battle for Judaism
is lost during their school life,
what hope have we to keep them
within the ranks of Israel, loyal
and true in the days to come?
The religious factor in educa-
tion is the strongest of all mo-
tives that make for moral
strength, self control and char-
acter. The weal or woe of our
children thus depends upon the
religious equipment with which
they start on the journey of life.
It is, therefore, the duty of every
Jewish father and mother to
understand at least the founda-
tion of Jewish religious educa-
tion as well as the aim toward
which wo are to train our chil-
dren in the way they should go.
One brief verse of the Psalmist,
restated in various forms by the
Biblical sages, wonderfully ex-
presses the foundation of Jewish
education: "Reishes chochmoh
yiras od hosheim""the fear of
the Lord is the beginning of wis-
dom." Judaism maintains that
the wisdom of man is a sheer and
utter vanity, unless it is con-
ditioned by "the fear of the
Lord," unless it is accompanied
by reverent submission to the
will in the service of higher
things.
The Jewish child was. and
should therefore be taught to
look upon life as a discipline de-
manding unconditional obedience
to Divine commandments. Thou
salt, and thou shalt not. involv-
ing a constant sacrifice of selfish
inclinations for the sake of prin-
ciple.
In such discipline lies the road
of educational salvation out of
the moral chaos in our own age.
Only by inculcating in the souls
of our young loyal obedience to
Divine laws that are absolute and
unchangeable can we hope to
stem the waters of animalism and
heathenism that today threaten
the higher life of man.
Listen to the words of two out-
stand men. One of the great
statesmen of our age says. "Our
youth of today, perhaps more
than ever on account of the mis-
ery that we have been reaping
now for the sowing of a few years
ago, requires a discipline which
is more severe, more drastic,
more hardening in spiritual
things, than has been called for
by any generation in the last
century."
The other, an illustrious Jew-
ish scientist, Professor Haffkine.
says, "Jewish youths are often
under the impression that re-
straint is tyrannical and illiberal.
The stores of observation and
thought accumulated by far-
sighted elders which arc essential
for guarding the destinies of a
nation are not perceivable to the
young, because they lack the ex-
perience and above all the neces-
sary knowledge."
These two opinions are best il-
lustrated by our prophet Jere-
miah in the words "tov lagever
ki yiso ol binoorov""it is good
for a man that he bear the yoke
in his youth." It is a vindication
of the basic principle of Jewish
education: "The fear of the Lord
is the beginning of wisdom."
If the fear of the Lord is the
foundation of Jewish religious
education, what is its purpose
goal and aim? The goal in the
training of our youth is not the
acquisition of skill, power or
wealth. These things may be
good in their place, but they arc
not the primary ends either of
education or of life. The primary
aim fit Jewish education is the
consecration of the Jewish child
to Judaism, and his preparation
for a life of beneficence for Israel
and humanity.
Jewish education must not end
with the Bar Mitzvah ceremony

YOU SHOULD KNOW .
Before the year is over a distinguished industrialist wh
fancies himself as a diplomat, and who received a specU
award for his great friendship toward the Jews will be e
posed as having co-operated with the Fascist anti-Semites *i
an Axis country What's this about a new "America
nationalist" party being in the offing, with its sponsors in
eluding anti-Semite Gerald L. K. Smith and Captain Eddi
Rickenbacker? We're told that an official publication 5
the Polish Government in exile reprinted the Nazi report o
the Warsaw ghetto battle without giving "credit" to the
source ... In this "report" the Jewish defenders of Warsaw
are called dangerous Communists We are investigating
further. '
JEWISH NEWS .
The Zionist Emergency Committee, now clicking on all
cylinders under the leadership of Dr. Abba H. Silver, will
issue its own publication, to be called "Palestine" \\ u
intended for both Jewish and non-Jewish readers ... All the
publicity distortions notwithstanding, the decision of the
interim sessions of the American Jewish Conference, con-
cluded last week, amounts to this: The Conference has been
put on ice and will function through its several constituent
organizations until the next session What happened to
that slogan of "Unity"? Believe it or not, the only ad in
the 24-page October issue of The Answer, organ of the Com-
mittee for a Jewish Army, is an announcement by a New
York funeral parlor There's an Army camp in Iceland
that has at its entrance a huge "Welcome" sign in sixteen
language German isn't one of them, but the greeting
"Shalom" appears on the sign in Hebrew letters.
LITERARY DEPARTMENT .
Now that Pierre van Paassen's new. book, "The Forgotten
Ally," is sweeping the country, we may tell you that before
its publication efforts were made to suppress it ... It is a
matter of record that it was the late Hebrew literary critic,
Reuben Brainin, who discovered and sponsored Saul Tcher-
nichovsky, the Hebrew poet who recently passed away ..
Yet the local Hebrew press ignored this biographical fact...
The Hebraists who have delved in Jewish politics cannot
forget that Reuben Brainin, during the last years of his life,
administered some public spankings to them for their reac-
tionaryism Probably they would have tempered their
eulogies of Tchernichovsky if they had known that the He-
brew poet left instructions for the posthumous return to the
Finnish government of the decoration it had bestowed upon
him Brainin and Tchernichovsky saw eye to eye on inter-
national affairs Strange, but true: The Norwegian Nobel
Prize winner, Sigrid Undset, now living in this country, wrote
a splendid article on anti-Semitism after the war ... Yet in
her conclusion, when she appeals for support to destroy
anti-Semitism, she carefully avoids mentioning Russia .
Could it be true that Mme. Undset is, as we have heard said,
violently anti-Soviet?
ABOUT PEOPLE .
Hitler will be interested to know that an Austrian Jew
whom he drove out of his home is now getting in guite a few
licks against Naziland The refugee is Dr. Paul Schwarz-
kopf of Yonkers, whose metallurgical discoveries have
proved extremely valuable to America's war industry
Among the American war correspondents who have been
killed in the line of duty since Pearl Harbor and whose mem-
ory will be honored by the naming of Liberty ships after
them are Melville Jacoby of Time and Life and Jack Singer
of the International News Service It's Pvt. Abe Fortas of
the U. S. Army now ... In case you don't remember, Fortas
was, until his induction. Undersecretary of the Interior
Max Band, famous French Jewish painter now residing in
California, will have an exhibition in New York in February,
1944 ... It will feature his new masterpiece, "O Lord, How
Long," a powerful indictment of the war as unleashed by the
Nazis Who do you suppose is the new teacher of the art
of clarinet playing at the classical Juillard Institute of Musical
Art? Why, none other than that king of swing
Benny Goodman Bandleader Abe Lyman's baggage for
his trip to Africa, where he'll entertain the boys, consists
chiefly of cigarsenough for the four months he expects to
be away (unless his audiences manage to schnorr away
some of his private stock) ... As for Danny Kayewho, as
we told you, is back on Broadway for a brief stayhe's look-
ing forward to a salary cut of 99.9 per cent It's like this:
Right now he's getting 512,500 a week (if his press agent's
report is accurate) And when he starts working for his
Uncle Sam he'll be getting $12.50 a week.

or with that famous "Baruch
Shepotrani," which means "thank
God, I am through with this
business of Hebrew school. Bar
Mitzvah and Shul," but should
extend for a number of years.
"Nicht Religionstunden sondern
Religionsjahre," said the illustri-
ous Leopold Zunz, the founder
of the new Jewish learning. An
ignorant, Torah-less Jewry may
hang onto life for a generation or
two, but its end is inevitable. In
the words of Rabbi Akiba, "Israel
can no more live on without the
Torah than fish can survive out
of water."

(Concluded from Last Week)
The reconstruction program included the work
i two units of social service experts who studied
st-war conditions in London, Paris and other large
rrnDean cities and visited internment and refu-
s' camps. Between 1920 and 1923 more than
fiSOOO individuals were given aid at the great port
lies and helped to become naturalized American
citizens.
The Council endorsed the entrance of the United
i States into the International Labor Organization
d the League of Nations and consistently sup-
' oorted social aspects of the league. At mat time,
Councils had been formed in Australia, Greece and
Turkey, and the Council was active in England,
Holland, France, Italy and other European countries.
With' the deepening of the depression, social and
welfare services were greatly increased. The
Council's program included creation of employ-
ment, financial relief, emergency training courses,
special free classes for the unemployed, participa-
tion in stay-in-school campaign and in the feeding
of undernourished children.
The Council joined the National Peace Confer-
ence and gave its support to trade agreements to
ease economic tension and favored the embargo on
war materials to aggressors. The Council petitioned
President Roosevelt to take a firm stand on the Jap-
anese question, to impose sanctions on Italy, and
to aid the Spanish Loyalists.
During the early days of Hitler's regime, the
Council's Port and Dock workers helped about 2,000
refugees annually through their first difficult hours
in a strange land. This number increased to 16,225
by 1939.
When American was again involved in world
war the Council's president, Mrs. Maurice L. Gold-
man issued an appeal to American Jewish women
to carry on the CouncU's fivefold program while
bending aU energies to win the war. The social
weUaie program was expanded to include war
activities. The Council is now represented on the
advisory committee of the Office of Civilian De-
fense, the Treasury, the Office of Price Administra-
tion, the Women's Interests Section of the War De-
partment and other governmental agencies.
The fight still goes on for legislation for social
security, better housing, health, wage and hour
legislation, and against lynching, the poll tax, and
any infringement of civil liberties. The Council is
among the leaders of a campaign for American
participation in a post-war world order that will set-
tle international problems without recourse to war.
Through the aid of Port and Dock workers, many
refugees and stateless families have been able to
find relatives or friends in this country. During the
year ending July, 1942, between ten and eleven
thousand Jewish immigrants were admitted to me
United States. -.
More and more emphasis is being placed on the
naturalization and Americanization oi aliens al-
ready in the United States. The Council has re-
sponded to the request of the government m ex-
tending its naturalization service to many com-
munities never reached before.
Perhaps the most interesting feature of ^e serv-
ice to the foreign-born is the gigantic master file at
the Council's headquarters. This file contains in-
formation from the 48 states and from all corners
of the earth relating to families disrupted by war
and Nazi persecution. This file was begun years
ago when the Council undertook the task of locating
relatives of Jewish families scattered from their na-
tive villages in pogroms and other pennons.
With sections in eVery part of the United States, the
Council is able to gather information from even
remote villages. Unquestionably, this master me
will be of inestimable value in the post-war perioa.
when a united effort wUl be made to locate and
bring together the victims of concentration ana
labor camps.

Chemistry Building. As he went in he looked ai

nium stands a chance carrying all that weignti
The week was full of surprises. The two that
stand out, of course, were the announcement by the
American Jewish Committee withdrawing from the
American Jewish Conference and the sudden resig-
nation of David Ben-Gurion from the Jewish Agency.
Mr. Ben-Gurion's resignation, tendered at a
session of the Zionist Actions Committee, was re-
jected and it is probable that Mr. Ben-Gurion will
continue in office.
Palestine newspapers, speaking of the resigna-
tion, say that an internal crisis within the Jewish
Agency has been brewing for some months. It all
began, it seems, following Ben-Gurion's return from
the United States. The Executive while refusing to
accept Ben-Gurion's resignation have decided, says
the report, to ask Dr. Weizmann, president of the
Agency, to proceed from London to Palestine "as
soon as possible." This would seem to link Dr.
Weizmann in some manner with the trouble.
The withdrawal of the American Jewish Commit-
tee from the American Jewish Conference brings to
an end the hope of that unanimity in American
Jewry which ensued following the conclusions of the
American Jewish Conference last August. At the
end of the last war, the various factions of Ameri-
can Jewry were able to make a united front, which
seemingly is impossible of achievement now.
The action of the committee in seceding from
the American Jewish Conference was quickly fol-
lowed by groups which opposed this action, seced-
ing in turn from the American Jewish Committee.
Hadassah, which met in national convention this
week, adopted a resolution withdrawing from the
American Jewish Committee membership. The
Rabbinical Assembly of America also adopted a
resolution severing its affiliation with the American
Jewish Committee. The resolutions of the American
Jewish Conference were also approved during the
week by the executive committee of the Central
Conference of American Rabbis at a meeting m
Cincinnati. ,,
So the issue is sharply drawn and we shall see
what we shall see.
Hadassah at its convention urged the inclusion
of Jewish representatives in any United Nations
conferences called to deal with Jewish matters and
the immediate shipment of food to feed the starving
survivors of the ghettos. Pierre van Paassen, who
has just written a new book dealing with Palestine,
addressed the Hadassah convention. He charged
that "British Imperialism" had never in the course
of Britain's mandatory regime sought for AraO-
Jewish reconciliation, but has systematically sabo-
taged every effort in that direction.
9 Argentina seems determined to offend al decent
sensibilities. This week it was announced that the
aovernor of Entre Rios province has issued an order
banning all Jewish welfare and mutual aid groups
"This action." says the report, "on the heels of
the' recent ban on the Jewish press is part of a

The Jewish Front: The withdrawal of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee from the American Jewish
Conference may be just the first step in the direction
of independent action by the Committee on Jewish
matters concerning which no unity can be achieved
. The storm raised by the withdrawal will not
subside for a long time This at least is what
Zionist leaders believe Zionist groups are de-
termined to extend the fight against the American
Jewish Committee throughout the country They
are urging provincial Jewish leaders to make the
withdrawal of the American Jewish Committee an
issue in each of the local Jewish communities .
The situation may become even more aggravated
should the Jewish Labor Committee follow the ex-
ample of the American Jewish Committee and also
withdraw from the American Jewish Conference__
Such a possibility is not excluded, since the Jewish
Labor Committee has for the time being refused to
be represented on the executive body of the Interim
Committee of the American Jewish Conference...
Though not opposing Palestine, the Jewish Labor
Committee is chiefly interested in the situation of
the Jews in Nazi-held Europe and in what must be
done immediately to alleviate their situation .
This, Jewish labor leaders say, was not dealt with
sufficiently by the American Jewish Conference ...
The final decision of the Jewish Labor Committee
is to be expected within the next week or so .
The eyes of everyone interested in these develop-
mnts are, naturally, directed toward the B'nai B'rith
. Meanwhile, the fight between the American
Jewish Committee and the American Jewish Con-
ference is attracting unprecedented attention in non-
Jewish circles One can say that the full-page
advertisements in the metropolitan press by certain
Jewish organizations have not attracted as much
attention among non-Jews as the publicity given to
the present internal Jewish strife.
Mission to Palestine: The Hadassah convention
which just concluded in New York discussed many
subjects relating to its work in Palestine One
subject, however, was not revealed to the delegates
. We mean the resignation of Dr. J. L. Magnes
from his post as a sort of a high commissioner of
the American Hadassah in Palestine Few per-
sons in the United States know that Mr. Magnes is
the head of a committee in Palestine authorized to
supervise the distribution of Hadassah funds there
. Even fewer know that some leaders of the Ha-
dassah in America have indicated to Dr. Magnes
that his political views cannot be considered as
going hand in hand with Hadassah interests .
The result was a letter from Dr. Magnes to the
Hadassah offering his resignation This letter,
however, was not brought before the Hadassah
convention for decision, though the Hadassah
Board discussed it Can it be that the proposed
trip to Palestine of Mrs. de Sola Pool has something
to do with Dr. Magne's offer to resign? We
understand that travel priorities for Mrs. de Sola
Pool were sought even before the national board of
Hadassah decided to send her to Palestine .
Speaking of Mrs. de Sola Pool, we want to empha-
size that many Hadassah delegates regret the fact
that she is no longer the president of the organiza-
tion ... It is acknowledged by all Zionists that she
has done a very good job during her term of office.
Ladder of Progress: No Jewish reader interested
in the early progress of Jewish culture and civiliza-
tion can afford not to read the book "The Ladder
of Progress in Palestine" just published by Harpers
. The author of this highly fascinating volume
is Chester C. McCown, former director of the Ameri-
can School of Oriental Research in Jerusalem, a
leading authority on archaeology In an account
of Palestinian archaeology, written chiefly for the
lay reader, he gives a vivid picture of the develop-
ment of Jewish culture both in the pre-Christian
and Christian eras Though the subject treated
in this book is scientific, each chapter makes easy
and captivating reading ... The volume leaves no
doubt as to the great role which the Jews played
several thousand years ago in the progress of the
world and substantiates many episodes of the niSie
by scientific fdcts ... At the same time the author
claims that certain facts in Jewish history, as de-
scribed in the Bible, are not correct Th lj as-
serts, for instance, that the fall of the walls of Jericho
was due to nothing else but an earthguake ... He
believes that archaeology does not discredit the
Bible as a record of religious faith, but that it does
orove that not all historical statements in the Bible
are literally true ... To him archaeological research
and historical study together make the Bible mtel-
liaible and correct false notions about it. Archae-
oloav is the handmaiden of history and interpreta-
tion, the author says Whatever his views as a

left his place at the presidium
table, the meeting was tempo-
rarily adjourned while the execu-
tive committee of the Jewish
Agency held a special meeting to
consider the resignation. After
the announcement by the execu-
tive committee that it had de-
cided not to accept Bcn-Curion's
resignation, the Actions Commit-
tee resumed us session which re-
sulted in a vote of 28 to o against
accepting the resignation The

tude, while Ben-Gurion is known
to be favoring a more radical
approach.
Ben-Gurion's resignation has
stirred up much discussion here
in the press and among Zionist
circles, official and otherwise.
Hashomer Hatzair, left wing of
the Zionist Laborites, issued a
statement here declaring that Mr.
Gurion's resignation wai a
"move against Dr. Weizmann"
and that n inconceivable
that Dr. Weizmann should be
torn away from the important

What Is new is that many of these

Jewish Welfare Board work-
ers occasionally receive odd re-
quests, but Milton Kulick. JWB
director in the Abilene. Tex.,
area, claims that the strangest
yf*. was a recent demanrd made
of him to furnish soldiers' fami-
lies with live skunks.
Seems a certain Pfc. J. R. Bin-
nion called at the Fifth Street
USO Club in Abilene and asked
if the JWB would be good enough
to forward a few skunks to sev-
eral soldiers' families. Binnion's
unit had collected the skunks, as
well as several raccoons and
armadillos, while on bivouac.
Somehow the folks back home
had got wind of the striped little
stinkers, and were demanding
them as pets.
One time on bivouac Binnion
and his men spied a mountain
lion at a watering place but, says
Mr. Kulick, some instinct re-
strained them from taking that
one home as a pet.
"The skunks, unfortunately,
have not been de-scented." Mr.
Kulick points out, "and they will
be shipped to the families who
requested them in their full
primeval glory.
"Who would have thunk." he
wants to know, "that the JWB
would be asked to provide a

the Legion of Merit in recognition
of his "initiative and sound judg-
ment" in action on Guadalcanal.
Serving as an assistant driver in

Budman is lauded for his will-
ingness to engage in "any kind
of work at any time, contributir/
materially to the successful op-
eration of his unit."

award to Budman relates how
Budman, after his battalion had
moved across the Matanikau
River and proceeded over diffi-
cult terrain in tropical heat to a
designated point, voluntarily ac-
companied a detail seeking much-
needed water. Returning from
the water hole, the party was
ambushed and several men shot
down. Despite the sudden ter-
ror and confusion, Cpl. Budman
"retained his presence of mind
and was instrumental in leading
the remainder of the group to
safety." His suggestion that an
automatic rifle be carried by one
member of all small detachments
was adopted for all operations on
Guadalcanal. "His untiring ef-
ficiency and his coolness in m\
ments of stress were of valuable
assistance to his unit."

LITTLE KID IS U. S. O. TO
MEN IN CASABLANCA
The following letter was re-
ceived by Nat Blumbcrg this
week from Lt. (j. g.) E. Albert
Pallot upon receipt of a New
Year's resolution containing
greetings from sixty-odd of his
local friends. Lt. Pallot served
as president of the YMHA and
the B'nai B'rith.
Dear Nat:
To say I am thrilled at receiv-
ing the wonderful New Year's
letter from you plus the endorse-
ment of Jack and sixty-three of
my friends, is placing it mildly.
Doris and Roxane join me in
wishing all of you the happiest,
most prosperous and successful
New Year, devoid of sorrow and
full of good health and joy.
I am getting along very well
and thoroughly enjoying my
training. Finish this, my fourth
school, shortly. First, Dartmouth
College; second, Princeton Uni-
versity; third. Armed Guard
School at Boston, and when I
leave here I go to Shell Beach,
La., for anti-aircraft practice.
Upon completing that course, to
Armed Guard School at New Or-
leans for two months, after
which I expect to be placed in
command of the gun crew on one
of the new Victory ships. For
the past few weeks I have been
instructing enlisted crews in
gunnery.
Until I can personally see and
thank my friends, please extend
to all of them my New Year's
wishes.
Sincerely,
Al.
TRI-POWER PRAYING IS
HEARD AT CAMP DAVIS
When it comes to inter-faith
accord, you can't beat Camp
Davis, N. C. If you visited
Chapel No. 4 at Camp Davis one
day recently, you could have
watched a Catholic conference
and a Protestant lecture going on
at the same time, and you would
have heard the loud, clear note
of a Shofar in the background.
Chaplain Ralph Blumenthal
was sounding the ram's horn as
part of a High Holy Day service
he was conducting for soldiers
in the center of that auditorium.
In another room of the same
chapel a group of Catholics were
conferring on plans and projects
under the leadership of Chaplain
Bernard McLaughlin, while a
group of Protestant chaplains
listened to a lecture by Chaplain
V. F. Perry.

cently. "My primary thoughts
out here are of life," he wrote.
"I am deeply conscious of what
I am fighting for and would not
sit at home if I could. What I
fight for is not an abstraction to
me. (It is) man's intense desire
to protect those he holds dearest
. the fact that I may die while
I am protecting you does not ap-
pall me in the least."

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5,


NOTES OF Y. M. #/. A
-by-
SAM SILVER
Gee, it's swell to see the lights
turned on again in the downtown
area! It has been ages since the
city looked so bright. Let's hope
and pray that the lights will be
turned on again "all over the
world" real soon. By the way,
speaking of lights-brings to mind
that it would be fun to have some
night baseball games at the "Y"
now that the dim-out restrictions
have been lifted. How's about it?
Youth Rally
Those of you who didn't spend
some time at the "Y" last Sunday
really missed a treat. The "Y"
and the Youth Council put on an
all-day youth rally which was
tremendously successful. Approx-
imately one hundred young pen-
pie participated in this affair
There were Boy Scouts. B'nai
B'rith girls. A. Z. A. boys. Tn
Betas and Independents among
the participants. Mr. Raymond
Reese, boys' secretary oi the
Y. M. C. A., was the guesl
speaker at the luncheon. His
subject was "Teen Troubles" and
he spoke so enthusiastically that
he kept the audience spellbound
Mr. Reese stressed the necessity
of a normal life for teen-agers,
and expressed the belief that
much racial hatred and bigotry
was the result of abnormal con-
dition.-such as war time, de-
pressions, and the like. In the
afternoon. George Chertkof,
chairman of the Y board of
directors acted as moderator in
a forui i on juvenile delinquency
and the curfew. This was per-
haps the first time such problems
have been presented to the young
people of this community for dis-
cussion and. believe you me. it
was a wise move because some
of the youngsters offend some
practical and rational solutions
to our local juvenile situation
In addition to the cultural aspects
of the program, social and ath-
letic events were held. Three
A. Z. A. teams and one Inde-
pendent outfit participated in a
basketball tournament, with Mi-
ami Chapter No. 322 defeating
Royal Palm Chapter. Miami
Beach. 33 to 22. in the finals.
Murry Spill of Royal Palm Chap-
ter won the handball tournament,
while Band of Miami No. 322 won
boys' ping pong, and Band and
H. Berkowitz of Miami No. 322
won horseshoes. Then were also
girls' volley ball and t
contests. Thanks of the Y are
extended to Lester Lasky, George
Chertkof. Alex Cohen. Sirs Alex

Dave Lachovitz smacked a homer
and gave the '"Y" a victory in the
second game of a double-header
with the Coast Guard last Sunday
morning. The "Y"' won the first
game also by a score of 9-1. so
the series is now tied at 3-all.

"Zygomyotous"
They tell me it's the name of a
play. At any rate, whatever it
is, it'll be presented at the "Y"
next Sunday evening. Seriously.
it's a play being presented by the
Sigma Rho Chapter of A. Z. A.
this Sunday evening. The boys
have put a lot of work into "Zyg-
omyotous." and I think it will be
worth your while to watch the
young Barrymores perform.
Immediately following the
play, the Youth Council will hold
a dance.

Welcome to New "Y" Columni
Sam Sliver has taken over Z
column devoted to the Mianu
"Y"and wish him "glib tilt-
ing. And from his first column
we note that his predecessor
Harry Schwartz, kept the column
going for six years. We haven't
the pleasure oi knowing Mr"
Schwartz, but having put uj j
trick of holding up a column for
a fraction of his six years we
have a vague idea of wnat it en-
tailed. And if the average indi-
vidual doesn't stop to think of
what it means to pass a dead-
line week and week out, when
news is plentiful, and things are
as dead as doornails and words
must be ground out with as mucn
effort as would be required to
dig a ditch, we do.
Some how, there is always
some one to pick up where we
leave offwith a bagful of good
ideas and intentions. Once in a
while we get a pat on the back
and buckle down to the type-
writer with renewed vigor and
enthusiasm. More often than not
we grind out the weekly stint
without knowing whether the ef-
fort is worth the candle, or
whether any one reads the col-
umn.
So here we have a word of
commendation for Mr. Schwartz,
from a fellow-drudge, and a word
of cheer to Sam Silvermay his
news never run dry, and his pen
never falter.

Box 2973 Phone 2-1141 Entered as Second Class Matter July 4, 19S0 at the Post Office of Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 FRED K. SHOCHET, Managing Editor Subscription—1 Year, $2.00 Six Months, $1.00 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1943 CHESHVAN 7. 5704 VOLUME 16 NUMBER 45 THE BALFOUR DECLARATION 'Twenty-six years ago in the midst of a world at war, the government of the British Commonwealth of Nations, looking to the day when peace would be restored and inspired with the desire to right an ancient wrong, issued the Balfour Declaration. This solemn covenant and undertaking to help in the reestablishment of the Jewish National Home in Palestine was subsequently endorsed by 52 nations, including by unanimous resolution the Congress of the United States. They came to a land of past glory but present decay, whose natural fertility had been destroyed by encroaching swamps and desert sands; whose hills had been denuded of trees; and whose cities had dwindled into mean and stagnant townships. In the course of a pioneering achievement unequalled in present-day colonization, they drained swamps and planted forests. They irrigated the dry land, developed agriculture and industry, and built cities. In the years that followed, hundreds of thousands of Europe's Jews found refuge and a home in Palestine." It is altogether fitting as the observance of Balfour Week is noted, that the Miami Zionist District initiated a constructive move that will concretely aid the Zionist cause at a time when it is needed most. At a meeting to be held next week, a proposal to heads of local houses of worship will be made similar to action of synagogues in other parts of the country, to enroll the membership of these institutions as a unit in the Zionist organization. The Zionist cause faces its most difficult period in its years of intensive effort in behalf of the National Homeland. The importance and weight that the action of any group bears depends upon its strength. In this instance numerical strength is all important. Dr. Stephen S. Wise, this week, at Balfour Day Meeting in New York, aptly said: "This is a day of joyous remembrance and of mournful reflection; joyous remembrance of the issuance of a great instrument, a charter which after the World War gave to the Jewish people a new hope and a new opportunity; mournful reflection because Balfour's England has not presided over the Palestine government throughout the more than a quarter of a century that has passed. Too often, and most especially at this moment, the Jewish rebuilders of Palestine have had not facilitation nor furtherance from that Palestine government which may have represented the Colonial office, but has utterly misrepresented the spirit of Balfour's England and the English people. Had the British instead of the Palestine government cooperated with us, Palestine today might in every sense be Jewish, as President Wilson said to me in 1918 he expected Palestine again to come. "But one thing more remains to be said. There might have been a Jewish Palestine today, if Jews of influence and power and circumstance had given their furtherance and their facilitation to the rebuilding of the Jewish National Home. These have failed us but the Jewish National Home is being created. It will be, provided the Jews of the world over deeply care and greatly help, provided the United Nations act in the spirit of the Atlantic Charter." With manpower shortage as prevalent and the innumerable additional channels in which the civic, patriotic and spiritual minded individual must lend his efforts, makes mandatory planning to do the most with the least effort. All the religious organizations are firm believers in Zionism and that for which it stands. Co-operation to effect the enrollment of the membership rosters of our local institutions must be given. Jewish Religious Education By RABBI SIMON APRIL Spiritual Leader Congregation Schaarei Zedik (Kditor's Note: This iM another in a MHM of artlclea by the Hiiiritual loaders of fJrater Miami.) "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." — Psalm 111:10. "The goal of wisdom is repentance and good deeds."—Talmud Brachoth 17a. Jewish religious education calls for two things, earnest consideration and concerted action. Israel's kingdom is a kingdom of the spirit; and Israel's history is not a story of fire, whirlwind or earthquake, but of the still, small voice, the voice of conscience, the voice of God. Religious education alone can rear the spiritual ramparts of that kingdom and insure a continuity of the Jewish spirit. "As long as the sound of little children repeating the Shema or Shemang is heard within the walls of Jewish schools and synagogue," say the Rabbis, "all the Balaams and Hamans in the world cannot prevail against Israel." Where Jewish schools are, alas deserted and Jewish children are prevented from learning the Shema. as the Hamans have succeeded in doing first in Germany, later in many other countries, the outlook for Israel is dark indeed. More than to any other people or church, religious education is a question of life and death to the congregation of Jacob. In the past, the Jew had translated literally the words of the Mishnah in Peoh, 1. "Talmud Torah K'neged Kulom" — which means that the study of the Torah is equal to them all; the study of the Torah outweighs all the ethical precepts enumerated in that Mishnah, because the Torah is itself the sum and concept of all ethical law. The duty of religious education is emphasized in the Shema ("and thou shalt teach them diligently to thy children") and it is thereby placed on the same level as the proclamation of the Unity of God and the command, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all they soul and with all thy might." Today more than ever before religious education has become of paramount. Never before has the school been of such vital importance; the school of today will decide the future of our race. Within a few years our youth will be men and women If, in their case, the battle for Judaism is lost during their school life, what hope have we to keep them within the ranks of Israel, loyal and true in the days to come? The religious factor in education is the strongest of all motives that make for moral strength, self control and character. The weal or woe of our children thus depends upon the religious equipment with which they start on the journey of life. It is, therefore, the duty of every Jewish father and mother to understand at least the foundation of Jewish religious education as well as the aim toward which wo are to train our children in the way they should go. One brief verse of the Psalmist, restated in various forms by the Biblical sages, wonderfully expresses the foundation of Jewish education: "Reishes chochmoh yiras od hosheim"—"the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." Judaism maintains that the wisdom of man is a sheer and utter vanity, unless it is conditioned by "the fear of the Lord," unless it is accompanied by reverent submission to the will in the service of higher things. The Jewish child was. and should therefore be taught to look upon life as a discipline demanding unconditional obedience to Divine commandments. Thou salt, and thou shalt not. involving a constant sacrifice of selfish inclinations for the sake of principle. In such discipline lies the road of educational salvation out of the moral chaos in our own age. Only by inculcating in the souls of our young loyal obedience to Divine laws that are absolute and unchangeable can we hope to stem the waters of animalism and heathenism that today threaten the higher life of man. Listen to the words of two outstand men. One of the great statesmen of our age says. "Our youth of today, perhaps more than ever on account of the misery that we have been reaping now for the sowing of a few years ago, requires a discipline which is more severe, more drastic, more hardening in spiritual things, than has been called for by any generation in the last century." The other, an illustrious Jewish scientist, Professor Haffkine. says, "Jewish youths are often under the impression that restraint is tyrannical and illiberal. The stores of observation and thought accumulated by farsighted elders which arc essential for guarding the destinies of a nation are not perceivable to the young, because they lack the experience and above all the necessary knowledge." These two opinions are best illustrated by our prophet Jeremiah in the words "tov lagever ki yiso ol binoorov"—"it is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth." It is a vindication of the basic principle of Jewish education: "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." If the fear of the Lord is the foundation of Jewish religious education, what is its purpose goal and aim? The goal in the training of our youth is not the acquisition of skill, power or wealth. These things may be good in their place, but they arc not the primary ends either of education or of life. The primary aim fit Jewish education is the consecration of the Jewish child to Judaism, and his preparation for a life of beneficence for Israel and humanity. Jewish education must not end with the Bar Mitzvah ceremony FRIDAY, NOVEMBER S, -TIDBITS FROM EVER iPJhicJtbj, Confidential -By PHINEAS J. BIRONYOU SHOULD KNOW Before the year is over a distinguished industrialist wh fancies himself as a diplomat, and who received a specU award for his great friendship toward the Jews will be e posed as having co-operated with the Fascist anti-Semites *i an Axis country What's this about a new "America nationalist" party being in the offing, with its sponsors in eluding anti-Semite Gerald L. K. Smith and Captain Eddi Rickenbacker? We're told that an official publication 5 the Polish Government in exile reprinted the Nazi report o the Warsaw ghetto battle without giving "credit" to the source ... In this "report" the Jewish defenders of Warsaw are called dangerous Communists We are investigating further. JEWISH NEWS The Zionist Emergency Committee, now clicking on all cylinders under the leadership of Dr. Abba H. Silver, will issue its own publication, to be called "Palestine" \\ u intended for both Jewish and non-Jewish readers ... All the publicity distortions notwithstanding, the decision of the interim sessions of the American Jewish Conference, concluded last week, amounts to this: The Conference has been put on ice and will function through its several constituent organizations until the next session What happened to that slogan of "Unity"? Believe it or not, the only ad in the 24-page October issue of The Answer, organ of the Committee for a Jewish Army, is an announcement by a New York funeral parlor There's an Army camp in Iceland that has at its entrance a huge "Welcome" sign in sixteen language German isn't one of them, but the greeting "Shalom" appears on the sign in Hebrew letters. LITERARY DEPARTMENT Now that Pierre van Paassen's new. book, "The Forgotten Ally," is sweeping the country, we may tell you that before its publication efforts were made to suppress it ... It is a matter of record that it was the late Hebrew literary critic, Reuben Brainin, who discovered and sponsored Saul Tchernichovsky, the Hebrew poet who recently passed away .. Yet the local Hebrew press ignored this biographical fact... The Hebraists who have delved in Jewish politics cannot forget that Reuben Brainin, during the last years of his life, administered some public spankings to them for their reactionaryism Probably they would have tempered their eulogies of Tchernichovsky if they had known that the Hebrew poet left instructions for the posthumous return to the Finnish government of the decoration it had bestowed upon him Brainin and Tchernichovsky saw eye to eye on international affairs Strange, but true: The Norwegian Nobel Prize winner, Sigrid Undset, now living in this country, wrote a splendid article on anti-Semitism after the war ... Yet in her conclusion, when she appeals for support to destroy anti-Semitism, she carefully avoids mentioning Russia Could it be true that Mme. Undset is, as we have heard said, violently anti-Soviet? ABOUT PEOPLE Hitler will be interested to know that an Austrian Jew whom he drove out of his home is now getting in guite a few licks against Naziland The refugee is Dr. Paul Schwarzkopf of Yonkers, whose metallurgical discoveries have proved extremely valuable to America's war industry • Among the American war correspondents who have been killed in the line of duty since Pearl Harbor and whose memory will be honored by the naming of Liberty ships after them are Melville Jacoby of Time and Life and Jack Singer of the International News Service It's Pvt. Abe Fortas of the U. S. Army now ... In case you don't remember, Fortas was, until his induction. Undersecretary of the Interior • Max Band, famous French Jewish painter now residing in California, will have an exhibition in New York in February, 1944 ... It will feature his new masterpiece, "O Lord, How Long," a powerful indictment of the war as unleashed by the Nazis Who do you suppose is the new teacher of the art of clarinet playing at the classical Juillard Institute of Musical Art? Why, none other than that king of swing • • Benny Goodman Bandleader Abe Lyman's baggage for his trip to Africa, where he'll entertain the boys, consists chiefly of cigars—enough for the four months he expects to be away (unless his audiences manage to schnorr away some of his private stock) ... As for Danny Kaye—who, as we told you, is back on Broadway for a brief stay—he's looking forward to a salary cut of 99.9 per cent It's like this: Right now he's getting 512,500 a week (if his press agent's report is accurate) And when he starts working for his Uncle Sam he'll be getting $12.50 a week. with fine, sincere rabbis, good lay leadership with good teachers ana all the necessary means to establish one of the best Talmud lorahs in the South. Let us an. fathers and mothers, co-operate for that great cause—to rear an our children for Judaism ana dedicate them to a life of beneiicence for Israel and humanityLet us implant within their Iitt"hearts "The fear of the Lor which is the beginning of wisdom."

"Nicht Religionstunden sondern Religionsjahre," said the illustrious Leopold Zunz, the founder of the new Jewish learning. An ignorant, Torah-less Jewry may hang onto life for a generation or two, but its end is inevitable. In the words of Rabbi Akiba, "Israel can no more live on without the Torah than fish can survive out of water." Miami Jewry has been blessed

In a statement issued at the Mount Nebo office, 914 Olympia Building, Rabbi Machtei said: "Every man prides himself on being his family's champion. He stands between them and all their problems. He wouldn't cause them an unnecessary moment of anguish, the shedding of an extra tea In fact, his life is devoted and dedicated to sparing them any and all anxiety, pain or anguish. "In my work I have observed the anguish of widows and of children who were suddenly Faced With immediate need of B burial plot for the head of the house. I have noted their confusion because the 'provider 1 had overlooked providing a future home for the family, in advance of need. When Mount Nebo invited me to become its managing director, I accepted in the hope that I could be of service to my neighbors, for I know from experience that the emotional strain of the family in its darkest hour can be eased by intelligent advance planning. "Mount Nebo fills a definite need in the community and renders a distinctive service, respecting the religious scruples of all shades in Judaism and emphasizing the bonds of the family group at all times." The burial estates of Mounf Nebo located at West Flagler Street and 54th Avenue, located ten minutes from the heart of Miami, are beautifully landscaped and accessible by bus.

romAY. NOVEMBER 5. 1943 1,1 I PAGE FIVE FJJ. by MARTIN SILVER IT MODUS. WEEK BY MILTON BROWN Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc. BETWEEN YOU AMD ME BY BORIS SMOLAR Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc. (Concluded from Last Week) The reconstruction program included the work i t wo units of social service experts who studied st-war conditions in London, Paris and other large rrnDean cities and visited internment and refus' camps. Between 1920 and 1923 more than fiSOOO individuals were given aid at the great port lies and helped to become naturalized American citizens. The Council endorsed the entrance of the United i States into the International Labor Organization d the League of Nations and consistently sup' oorted social aspects of the league. At mat time, Councils had been formed in Australia, Greece and Turkey, and the Council was active in England, Holland, France, Italy and other European countries. With' the deepening of the depression, social and welfare services were greatly increased. The Council's program included creation of employment, financial relief, emergency training courses, special free classes for the unemployed, participation in stay-in-school campaign and in the feeding of undernourished children. The Council joined the National Peace Conference and gave its support to trade agreements to ease economic tension and favored the embargo on war materials to aggressors. The Council petitioned President Roosevelt to take a firm stand on the Japanese question, to impose sanctions on Italy, and to aid the Spanish Loyalists. During the early days of Hitler's regime, the Council's Port and Dock workers helped about 2,000 refugees annually through their first difficult hours in a strange land. This number increased to 16,225 by 1939. When American was again involved in world war the Council's president, Mrs. Maurice L. Goldman issued an appeal to American Jewish women to carry on the CouncU's fivefold program while bending aU energies to win the war. The social weUaie program was expanded to include war activities. The Council is now represented on the advisory committee of the Office of Civilian Defense, the Treasury, the Office of Price Administration, the Women's Interests Section of the War Department and other governmental agencies. The fight still goes on for legislation for social security, better housing, health, wage and hour legislation, and against lynching, the poll tax, and any infringement of civil liberties. The Council is among the leaders of a campaign for American participation in a post-war world order that will settle international problems without recourse to war. Through the aid of Port and Dock workers, many refugees and stateless families have been able to find relatives or friends in this country. During the year ending July, 1942, between ten and eleven thousand Jewish immigrants were admitted to me United States. -. More and more emphasis is being placed on the naturalization and Americanization oi aliens already in the United States. The Council has responded to the request of the government m extending its naturalization service to many communities never reached before. Perhaps the most interesting feature of ^e service to the foreign-born is the gigantic master file at the Council's headquarters. This file contains information from the 48 states and from all corners of the earth relating to families disrupted by war and Nazi persecution. This file was begun years ago when the Council undertook the task of locating relatives of Jewish families scattered from their native villages in pogroms and other pennons. With sections in eVery part of the United States, the Council is able to gather information from even remote villages. Unquestionably, this master me will be of inestimable value in the post-war perioa. when a united effort wUl be made to locate and bring together the victims of concentration ana labor camps. Secretary of the Treasury Henry u Morgenthau has appeared so often on the radio that he feared he might be violating some union code. 80 *?F plied, through the usual channels, for membership in the American Federation of Radio Artists When the august secretary's name came up. the astounded board instantly voted him honorary membership in the AFRA. • • George Jessel was chairman of the panel on "Humor and the Films" scheduled in the U. U. J-• Chemistry Building. As he went in he looked ai the symbolic figures of the elements curiously • • then ruefully shook his head. "I don't think.Uranium stands a chance carrying all that weignti The week was full of surprises. The two that stand out, of course, were the announcement by the American Jewish Committee withdrawing from the American Jewish Conference and the sudden resignation of David Ben-Gurion from the Jewish Agency. Mr. Ben-Gurion's resignation, tendered at a session of the Zionist Actions Committee, was rejected and it is probable that Mr. Ben-Gurion will continue in office. Palestine newspapers, speaking of the resignation, say that an internal crisis within the Jewish Agency has been brewing for some months. It all began, it seems, following Ben-Gurion's return from the United States. The Executive while refusing to accept Ben-Gurion's resignation have decided, says the report, to ask Dr. Weizmann, president of the Agency, to proceed from London to Palestine "as soon as possible." This would seem to link Dr. Weizmann in some manner with the trouble. The withdrawal of the American Jewish Committee from the American Jewish Conference brings to an end the hope of that unanimity in American Jewry which ensued following the conclusions of the American Jewish Conference last August. At the end of the last war, the various factions of American Jewry were able to make a united front, which seemingly is impossible of achievement now. The action of the committee in seceding from the American Jewish Conference was quickly followed by groups which opposed this action, seceding in turn from the American Jewish Committee. Hadassah, which met in national convention this week, adopted a resolution withdrawing from the American Jewish Committee membership. The Rabbinical Assembly of America also adopted a resolution severing its affiliation with the American Jewish Committee. The resolutions of the American Jewish Conference were also approved during the week by the executive committee of the Central Conference of American Rabbis at a meeting m Cincinnati. ,, So the issue is sharply drawn and we shall see what we shall see. Hadassah at its convention urged the inclusion of Jewish representatives in any United Nations conferences called to deal with Jewish matters and the immediate shipment of food to feed the starving survivors of the ghettos. Pierre van Paassen, who has just written a new book dealing with Palestine, addressed the Hadassah convention. He charged that "British Imperialism" had never in the course of Britain's mandatory regime sought for AraOJewish reconciliation, but has systematically sabotaged every effort in that direction. 9 Argentina seems determined to offend al decent sensibilities. This week it was announced that the aovernor of Entre Rios province has issued an order banning all Jewish welfare and mutual aid groups "This action." says the report, "on the heels of the' recent ban on the Jewish press is part of a campaign to impress the people that anything.outside of Catholicism is un-American !" e !" ential newspaper Prensa this week protested against auempts to ^traduce religious intolerance into ^The British section of the World Jewish Congress at itiT meeting in London this week adopted a IMOSTlB5P^£Xi Red Army had SSbSa more than anything to the solution of these vicforieT This was the happiest aspect of SftaX in Germany behind the scenes. moth Re ^^er reC urring attacks of malaria. a. a 5dn corner about that incident.

The Jewish Front: The withdrawal of the American Jewish Committee from the American Jewish Conference may be just the first step in the direction of independent action by the Committee on Jewish matters concerning which no unity can be achieved The storm raised by the withdrawal will not subside for a long time This at least is what Zionist leaders believe Zionist groups are determined to extend the fight against the American Jewish Committee throughout the country They are urging provincial Jewish leaders to make the withdrawal of the American Jewish Committee an issue in each of the local Jewish communities The situation may become even more aggravated should the Jewish Labor Committee follow the example of the American Jewish Committee and also withdraw from the American Jewish Conference Such a possibility is not excluded, since the Jewish Labor Committee has for the time being refused to be represented on the executive body of the Interim Committee of the American Jewish Conference... Though not opposing Palestine, the Jewish Labor Committee is chiefly interested in the situation of the Jews in Nazi-held Europe and in what must be done immediately to alleviate their situation This, Jewish labor leaders say, was not dealt with sufficiently by the American Jewish Conference ... The final decision of the Jewish Labor Committee is to be expected within the next week or so The eyes of everyone interested in these developmnts are, naturally, directed toward the B'nai B'rith Meanwhile, the fight between the American Jewish Committee and the American Jewish Conference is attracting unprecedented attention in nonJewish circles One can say that the full-page advertisements in the metropolitan press by certain Jewish organizations have not attracted as much attention among non-Jews as the publicity given to the present internal Jewish strife. Mission to Palestine: The Hadassah convention which just concluded in New York discussed many subjects relating to its work in Palestine One subject, however, was not revealed to the delegates We mean the resignation of Dr. J. L. Magnes from his post as a sort of a high commissioner of the American Hadassah in Palestine Few persons in the United States know that Mr. Magnes is the head of a committee in Palestine authorized to supervise the distribution of Hadassah funds there Even fewer know that some leaders of the Hadassah in America have indicated to Dr. Magnes that his political views cannot be considered as going hand in hand with Hadassah interests The result was a letter from Dr. Magnes to the Hadassah offering his resignation This letter, however, was not brought before the Hadassah convention for decision, though the Hadassah Board discussed it Can it be that the proposed trip to Palestine of Mrs. de Sola Pool has something to do with Dr. Magne's offer to resign? We understand that travel priorities for Mrs. de Sola Pool were sought even before the national board of Hadassah decided to send her to Palestine Speaking of Mrs. de Sola Pool, we want to emphasize that many Hadassah delegates regret the fact that she is no longer the president of the organization ... It is acknowledged by all Zionists that she has done a very good job during her term of office. Ladder of Progress: No Jewish reader interested in the early progress of Jewish culture and civilization can afford not to read the book "The Ladder of Progress in Palestine" just published by Harpers The author of this highly fascinating volume is Chester C. McCown, former director of the American School of Oriental Research in Jerusalem, a leading authority on archaeology In an account of Palestinian archaeology, written chiefly for the lay reader, he gives a vivid picture of the development of Jewish culture both in the pre-Christian and Christian eras Though the subject treated in this book is scientific, each chapter makes easy and captivating reading ... The volume leaves no doubt as to the great role which the Jews played several thousand years ago in the progress of the world and substantiates many episodes of the niSie by scientific fdcts ... At the same time the author claims that certain facts in Jewish history, as described in the Bible, are not correct Th lj asserts, for instance, that the fall of the walls of Jericho was due to nothing else but an earthguake ... He believes that archaeology does not discredit the Bible as a record of religious faith, but that it does orove that not all historical statements in the Bible are literally true ... To him archaeological research and historical study together make the Bible mtelliaible and correct false notions about it. Archaeoloav is the handmaiden of history and interpretation, the author says Whatever his views as a V

What Is new is that many of these ti II itories are now being redeemed by the advancing armies of the liberating powers and that in their desperation, the recoiling Hitlerites and Huns are redoubling their ruthless cruelties.

JWB director in the Abilene. Tex., area, claims that the strangest y f*. was a recent demanrd made of him to furnish soldiers' families with live skunks. Seems a certain Pfc. J. R. Binnion called at the Fifth Street USO Club in Abilene and asked if the JWB would be good enough to forward a few skunks to several soldiers' families. Binnion's unit had collected the skunks, as well as several raccoons and armadillos, while on bivouac. Somehow the folks back home had got wind of the striped little stinkers, and were demanding them as pets. One time on bivouac Binnion and his men spied a mountain lion at a watering place but, says Mr. Kulick, some instinct restrained them from taking that one home as a pet. "The skunks, unfortunately, have not been de-scented." Mr. Kulick points out, "and they will be shipped to the families who requested them in their full primeval glory. "Who would have thunk." he wants to know, "that the JWB would be asked to provide a skunk?" Ci.mbing steadily and rapidly •n the ranks of the U. S. Army is Stanley Kolber, son of Mr. and Mrs. Abraham Kolber. 1244 Pennsylvania Avenue. Advancing to a lieutenancy within nine months after entering as a private at Lamp Blanding, Fla., Lt.

Raymond Budman, 23. of Philadelphia, is the recipient of the Legion of Merit in recognition of his "initiative and sound judgment" in action on Guadalcanal. Serving as an assistant driver in a battalion pioneer section, Cpl. Budman is lauded for his willingness to engage in "any kind of work at any time, contributir/ materially to the successful operation of his unit." The citation accompanying the award to Budman relates how Budman, after his battalion had moved across the Matanikau River and proceeded over difficult terrain in tropical heat to a designated point, voluntarily accompanied a detail seeking muchneeded water. Returning from the water hole, the party was ambushed and several men shot down. Despite the sudden terror and confusion, Cpl. Budman "retained his presence of mind and was instrumental in leading the remainder of the group to safety." His suggestion that an automatic rifle be carried by one member of all small detachments was adopted for all operations on Guadalcanal. "His untiring efficiency and his coolness in m\ ments of stress were of valuable assistance to his unit." S Sgt. Abe Beiman. 29. of Johnstown, Pa., a member of the Army Air Corps for the past five years, is being held a captive in the Philippines. Capt.

Albert Pallot upon receipt of a New Year's resolution containing greetings from sixty-odd of his local friends. Lt. Pallot served as president of the YMHA and the B'nai B'rith. Dear Nat: To say I am thrilled at receiving the wonderful New Year's letter from you plus the endorsement of Jack and sixty-three of my friends, is placing it mildly. Doris and Roxane join me in wishing all of you the happiest, most prosperous and successful New Year, devoid of sorrow and full of good health and joy. I am getting along very well and thoroughly enjoying my training. Finish this, my fourth school, shortly. First, Dartmouth College; second, Princeton University; third. Armed Guard School at Boston, and when I leave here I go to Shell Beach, La., for anti-aircraft practice. Upon completing that course, to Armed Guard School at New Orleans for two months, after which I expect to be placed in command of the gun crew on one of the new Victory ships. For the past few weeks I have been instructing enlisted crews in gunnery. Until I can personally see and thank my friends, please extend to all of them my New Year's wishes. Sincerely, Al. TRI-POWER PRAYING IS HEARD AT CAMP DAVIS When it comes to inter-faith accord, you can't beat Camp Davis, N. C. If you visited Chapel No. 4 at Camp Davis one day recently, you could have watched a Catholic conference and a Protestant lecture going on at the same time, and you would have heard the loud, clear note of a Shofar in the background. Chaplain Ralph Blumenthal was sounding the ram's horn as part of a High Holy Day service he was conducting for soldiers in the center of that auditorium. In another room of the same chapel a group of Catholics were conferring on plans and projects under the leadership of Chaplain Bernard McLaughlin, while a group of Protestant chaplains listened to a lecture by Chaplain V. F. Perry. WAR RECORDS COMMITTEE NAT ROTH, Chairman FRED SHOCHET MRSGEORGE M. COHEN MAURICE GROSSMAN JENNIE H. ROTFORT NATHAN ROTHBERO J. W. B. Director OFFICERS SAM BLANK, CHAIRMAN MONTE SELIO.

He liked soldiers, especially American soldiers, and he hung around them. Down in Casablanca soldiers get lonesome. They like to have kids around. Cpl. Sol Peshkin named him "G. I.," and all the boys in Sol's company began setting some money aside from their paychecks each month for "G. I.'s" education. When the men changed barracks, "G. I." packed up and moved along with them. "G. I.," according to a letter Cpl. Peshkin sent home recently, has had strict military training from the men. He wears G. I. clothes. He has worked himself up through the ranks to sergeant. When he /alutes. it's pretty snappy, and recently he stood at attention like a veteran while a good conduct medal was pinned on him. He is also a little USO club in himself when it comes to entertainment—he can lead a band like a professional, and he can dance. "He's a bright, versatile lad." in Cpl. Peshkin's words, "and there isn't anything he can't do. There isn't a soul in this camp who doesn't think he's wonderful." "G. I.," an African boy, is eight years old. Lt. Morton Macks, of Oakland. Cal., holds the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal. A member of the 8th U. S. Army Air Force stationed in England, Lt.

Assuring his mother, Mrs. Rose Fischbein, of 594 Hunterdon Street, that he had "a ro> turn ticket for home," he wrote of his determination to take as great a toll of enemy lives as he he could. He was a member of Congregation Ansho Linintzer. of Newark. Lt. Archie S. Butch. 23. of Brooklyn, was killed in action in the Southwest Pacific. An infantry officer, he had been in service 17 months, entering the service shortly after his graduation from City College, of New York. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Busch of 228 E. 38th Street, received two letters from him the day before his death was made known to them. "The job must be finished." Lt. Busch had written.

Leader of a flight of four P-38's, Shubin and his formation intercepted a group of about 50 Jap planes and moved in to the attack. Drawing off the enemy rear cover, some 15 Zeros, Lt. Shubin shot down two and then found himself alone as the other three American planes were forced by lack of ammunition and damage to retire. For three-quarters of an hour Lt. Shubin fought five Zeros and "with brilliant maneuvering and frugal use of ammunition" proceeded to demolish them one by one. With a single burst he shattered one Zero and then from a steep spiral dive scored a full deflection shot on another, destroying it. An aeronautical engineer before he joined the Air Corps two years ago, Shubin is a Phi Beta Kappa alumnus of Kenyon College (Ohio) and is affiliated with Rodef Shalom Temple of Pittsburgh. Lt. (j.g.) Wallace M. Bonapart. 26, of Los Angeles, a naval officer serving in the South Pacific, has been killed in action. A letter he wrote to his parents as a "last testament" received national prominence in the press recently. "My primary thoughts out here are of life," he wrote. "I am deeply conscious of what I am fighting for and would not sit at home if I could. What I fight for is not an abstraction to me. (It is) man's intense desire to protect those he holds dearest the fact that I may die while I am protecting you does not appall me in the least." Assistant Engineer Ira Simon Mason. 42, of Newport, R. I., previously listed as missing and for a time reported dead, is a prisoner of the Japanese, although his vessel was torpedoed by the Germans. Previous to his entry in the Merchant Marine, Mason was an employe of the Texas Oil Co. and had been serving as assistant engineer on an oil tanker.

PAGE EIGHT v.kwisl-ncrtdtotn FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5 NOTES OF Y. M. #/. A -bySAM SILVER Gee, it's swell to see the lights turned on again in the downtown area! It has been ages since the city looked so bright. Let's hope and pray that the lights will be turned on again "all over the world" real soon. By the way, speaking of lights-brings to mind that it would be fun to have some night baseball games at the "Y" now that the dim-out restrictions have been lifted. How's about it? Youth Rally Those of you who didn't spend some time at the "Y" last Sunday really missed a treat. The "Y" and the Youth Council put on an all-day youth rally which was tremendously successful. Approximately one hundred young penpie participated in this affair There were Boy Scouts. B'nai B'rith girls. A. Z. A. boys. Tn Betas and Independents among the participants. Mr. Raymond Reese, boys' secretary oi the Y. M. C. A., was the guesl speaker at the luncheon. His subject was "Teen Troubles" and he spoke so enthusiastically that he kept the audience spellbound Mr. Reese stressed the necessity of a normal life for teen-agers, and expressed the belief that much racial hatred and bigotry was the result of abnormal condition.-—such as war time, depressions, and the like. In the afternoon. George Chertkof, chairman of the Y board of directors acted as moderator in a forui i on juvenile delinquency and the curfew. This was perhaps the first time such problems have been presented to the young people of this community for discussion and. believe you me. it was a wise move because some of the youngsters offend some practical and rational solutions to our local juvenile situation In addition to the cultural aspects of the program, social and athletic events were held. Three A. Z. A. teams and one Independent outfit participated in a basketball tournament, with Miami Chapter No. 322 defeating Royal Palm Chapter. Miami Beach. 33 to 22. in the finals. Murry Spill of Royal Palm Chapter won the handball tournament, while Band of Miami No. 322 won boys' ping pong, and Band and H. Berkowitz of Miami No. 322 won horseshoes. Then were also girls' volley ball and t contests. Thanks of the Y are extended to Lester Lasky, George Chertkof. Alex Cohen. Sirs Alex Cohen. Marx Fcinberg. Maurice Grossman, Mrs Maurice (ir man.

Seriously. it's a play being presented by the Sigma Rho Chapter of A. Z. A. this Sunday evening. The boys have put a lot of work into "Zygomyotous." and I think it will be worth your while to watch the young Barrymores perform. Immediately following the play, the Youth Council will hold a dance.

And from his first column we note that his predecessor Harry Schwartz, kept the column going for six years. We haven't the pleasure oi knowing M r Schwartz, but having put uj j trick of holding up a column for a fraction of his six years we have a vague idea of wnat it entailed. And if the average individual doesn't stop to think of what it means to pass a deadline week and week out, when news is plentiful, and things are as dead as doornails and words must be ground out with as mucn effort as would be required to dig a ditch, we do. Some how, there is always some one to pick up where we leave off—with a bagful of good ideas and intentions. Once in a while we get a pat on the back and buckle down to the typewriter with renewed vigor and enthusiasm. More often than not we grind out the weekly stint without knowing whether the effort is worth the candle, or whether any one reads the column. So here we have a word of commendation for Mr. Schwartz, from a fellow-drudge, and a word of cheer to Sam Silver—may his news never run dry, and his pen never falter. m A E E T N R Tluuiu for REST CONVALESCENCE onjCHRONICCASES ONElAlDAY VITAMIN JSLTABLBTS THINK mt Ml Tow mln* Ian d4llr rwulmmau of A an4 D Vitamin* or of B Cenplex VitamisM. la m •leaeaat tafcUt RnMtabar tfce Mm OKB-A-DAT (brand) Vitamin TaMota. un Ray Park Health Resort SIMOFOK OOKUT( Ml US NERVINE f|0 TENSK ~Jo Wekefel.

Hankoff, chairman of the membership committee of the YM&WHA of Miami Beach, is selecting a committee of volunteers to conduct a one-day membership drive on "Y" day SuniYv Nov 21. 1943, which will cover the entire community on that day to enroll new members. The creation of the Beach "Y" met with widespread approval and received the support of unmiinent citizens. Ofticers are Hurry Zukernick, president; Benjamin E. Bronston. vice president; Anna Brenner Meyers, secretary; Mrs. Milton Sirkin. assistant secretary, and David Phillips treasurer. The board of directors includes Rudy R. Adler. Morns Alpert, Benjamin Appel, George J. Bertman, Benjamin E. Bronston, Jake Felt, Nathan Glosser Nat H. Hankoff, Dr. Jacob H Kaplan, Mrs. Moses Krieger, A Louis Mechlowitz, Rabbi Moses Mescheloff, Mrs. Benjamin Meyers David Phillips, Joseph M. Kose, Alfred B. Rosenstein, Harry Sirkin. Mrs. Milton Sirkin. Harold Turk, Carl Weinkle and Harry Zukernick. Jack Marash, executive director, discloses that a program of athletic activities is being studied in order to determine how best to adapt the spacious Y grounds, but in the meantime athletic activities are to be conducted using present facilities. The facilities of the Beach "Y" are already being used by the National Council of Jewish Wornen Denver Home, Cardiac Home, Jewish National Workers' Alli : ance. B'nai B'rith, A. Z. A.. B nai B'rith Girls, the Zionist Forum, Husinoss and Professional Group HI Hadassah, and other groups, for meeting and other purposes. A reading room is maintained for the exclusive use of service nun, and Saturday nights are reserved for service men's dances. Teen-age dances are planned for Sunday nights. A dramatic club has been formed with Mrs. Gertrude Mux as president and Miss June Kassel as director. It is anticipated that the entire Beach community will respond to the call for members and will support the activities of the Beach "Y" by its active participation, the chairman of the drive indicated. Jewish men and women, boys and girls, are eligible for membership and dues are scaled to provide for family membership, individual male and female adults, and junior boys and girls. On "Y" day, Sunday, Nov. 21. 1943, the membership committee will meet at the "Y" building. 1 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, for breakfast and a program for the occasion, after which each comnutteeman and woman will devote the remainder of the day to contact prospects and get their applications for membership.

Rabbi Moses Mecheloff I State of New York, who declared the 26th anniversary of the issu-1 will speak on the "Effect of Pal-1 that "now, even more than after the last war, it is essential that a way be found to open the doors of Palestine." Miss Dorothy Thompson, commentator on international affairs, asserted that the first step toward disentanglement of the problems of the Near East "must be a clearCU t division of the political spheres of sovereignty of Jews and Arabs," as clearly implied in the Balfour Declaration. Declaring that the gathering was an occasion for "joyous remembrance and mournful reflection," Dr. Stephen S. Wise asserted that "had the British instead of the Palestine government co-operated with us, Palestine today might in every sense be Jewish, as President Wilson said to me in 1918 he expected Palestine again to become." He also asserted that "if Jews of influence and power and circumstance —such as they who recently withdrew from the American Jewish Conference" had given "their furtherance and their facilitation to the rebuilding of the Jewish national home" there "might have been a Jewish Palestine today." Dr. Goldstein, newly elected president of the ZOA, criticized "irresponsible" suggestions proposing the transfer of Arabs from Palestine to Iraq as unauthorized by "any responsible Jewish body here or abroad."
