Mexico City (JTA). Jewish
refugees from Poland living in
the camp at Santa Rosa estab-
lished in Mexico by the Polish
government-in-exile for Poles
coming from Iran and India are
in ing terrorized by Polish refu-
gees, it is disclosed by the Mexi-
can labor paper "El Popclar" on
the basis of an investigation made
by a special correspondent.
Though there are only 27 Jews
among the 700 Poles in the camp, i
the Jewish men, women and chil-
dren there are addressed as
"mangy Jews" and often beaten, j
Cries of "Jews to Palestine" and
"Death to the Jews" can be heard
often in the camp. Swastikas |
have been draw on the entrances:
to the sleeping quarters of the
Jews, and stones and mud were
thrown through the windows of |
the room where Jews pray on
holidays. Even the few Jewish
children in the camp are reported
to be persecuted without any at-
tempt by the Polish administra-
tion of the camp to put an end to
the anti-Jewish hooliganism, the
reporter of the Mexican paper es-
tablished.
From other sources it was
learned that the Jewish Com-
munity Council in Mexico City,
anxious to rescue the Jews from
these indignities, offered to take
them from the Polish camp and
maintain them with community
funds. The Polish minister, how-
ever, rejected the offer, declar-
ing that "the Polish authorities
make no distinction between Jews
and non-Jews." At the same time
the Jews were penalized for send-
ing a complaint to the united
States ambassador in Mexico and
to Jewish relief organizations in
New York.
The group Of 27 Jews consists
of 15 persons who came from
Russia to where they escaped
after the German army invaded
Poland, and 12 who reached Bom-
Lav. Several of the latter had
-ration visas to the United
States when arriving m Bombay.
but all of them had to sign a
statement pledging acceptance of
the terms of the Polish-Mexican
agreement which provides for
their return to Poland aftci the
war and prohibits them from do-
ing any w,k while in Mexico.
Thev assert, however, that the
Polish consul id Bombay told
them at that time that their sign-
ing of the statement was a mere
ormality. that they would have
reedorn of action ,n Mexico and
if thev so wished, they could ar-
range for their entrance into the
United States.
B. LEVINTHAL RESIGNS
FROM AJC AS PROTEST
New York (WNS).Rabbi B. L.
Leventhal of Philadelphia, dean
of American orthodox rabbis and
one ol the five founders of the
American Jewish Committee, to-
day resigned from the committee
in protest against "its utterly in-
di fensible" secession from the
i nan Jewish Conference.
In a letter to Judge Joseph M.
Pros k a ue r. president ol the
Ann rcan Jewish Committee. Rab-
bi Leventhal voiced "profound
regret that alter a continuous as-
sociation with the American Jew-
ish Committee since it was first
instituted in our city (Philadel-
phia! in the year 1906. I find it
impossible to remain a member
of it any longer and must tender
my resignation, to take effect at
once."

on relief boards
New York (JTA).Inclusion of
representatives of the Jews in
Poland in the relief and rehabili-
tation agencies of the Polish gov-
ernment was asked this week by
the American Federation for
Polish Jews and the representa-
tion of Polish Jewry to admims-
iter the specific and pressing
needs of the remaining Jewish
population in Poland. The re-
quest was made in a memoran-
I dum submitted to Jan Kwapinski.
' head of the Polish delegation at
the council of tfle UNRRA. now
in session in Atlantic City.
Emphasizing the moral value
of the participation of the recipi-
ents themselves in the adminis-
tering of relief and rehabilitation,
the memorandum proposes that
the representation of Polish Jew-
iv consisting of Polish Jews now
in the United States who were
formerly acknowledged and of-
ficial leaders in the Jewish com-
munity in Poland, be recognized
as the responsible representatives
of the Jews in Poland until such
nine as Polish Jewry itself de-
cides on the most desirable form
of representation.
O.S.S.R.IO
New York (JTA).The World
Ji v. ill Congress this week an-
noun K 'i thai plans are now being
made to evacuate a number of
i Jews who are now in the
U.S.S.R. to Iran, whence they
will emigrate to various coun-
tries.
In the selection of candidates
for evacuation from the U.S.S.R.,
preference will be given to the
immediate families of Jews who
arc still in the Polish military
forces or who died during this
war while in Polish service, and
relatives of Polish Jews who are
serving in any of the other Al-
lied armies. A limited number of
persons who have no relatives in
the Polish or other Allied armies
may also be evacuated, the an-
nouncement said.
Relatives of refugees known to
be at present in the U.S.S.R., and
who have written letters substan-
tiating this receeived within the
past six months, are urged to ap-
ply to the World Jewish Congress
for the necessary applications for
the inclusion of their relatives'
or friends' names in the evacua-
tion candidate list.
London (JTA). The present
co-operation between the Jews of
the Soviet Union and the Jewish
.communities in the rest of the
world will continue after the war,
it was stated here by Lt. Col.
Itzik Feffer, one of the two Rus-
sian Jewish delegates, addressing
a meeting called by the Federa-
tion of Jewish Relief Organiza-
tions.
The meeting launched a cam-
paign to collect clothing for refu-
gees and evacuees in Russia. The
clothing will be sent to areas in
which Jewish evacuees are con-
centrated, but it was emphasized
by Prof. Solomon Mikhoels. the
other Russian-Jewish delegate,
that no distinction would be made
between persons of any race or
creed in distributing the wearing
apparel.

Atlanta (WNS).Leo M. Frank
who was lynched here in 1915
bv a mob after his conviction on
a charge of killing a young fac-
tory girl, was innocent, declared
! Arthur G. Powell, 70 former
judge of the Georgia Court of
Appeals.
The revelation was made in a
book, "I Can Go Home Now, by
Judge Powell, which has recently
been published by the University
of North Carolina Press. Judge
Powell wrote that he knows who
killed Mary Phagan; that he
"could never honorably make the
information public as long as cer-
tain persons are still living, and
that he expected to write down,
and seal what he knew with in-
structions that it is not to be
i opened until certain persons are
idead."
The former Court of Appeals
judge declared here in a press in-
terview last week that he could
not be compelled to testify before
a grand jury now because he re-
ceived his information in his ca-
pacity as an attorney, and that
he could not divulge the name ot
the real murderer because to do
so would be violating a confi-
dential communication from a
client to an attorney.
Montreal (JTA).Maurice Du-
plessis, former premier of Que-
bec and present leader of the
Union Nationale party, was ac-
cused this week of spreading
false rumors with the intention
of harming the petition now be-
ing circulated in Canada on be-
half of the Jewish refugees.
The accusation was made by
the Rev. C. E. Silcox of Toronto,
director of the Canadian Confer-
ence of Christians and Jews, who
spoke at services in which four
Christian congregations as well
as members of Cornwall's Jewish
community participated. He re-
ferred to the statement made a
week ago by Mr. Dupessis to the
effect "that a Zionist group was
conspiring to flood Quebec farms
with 100.000 Jewish refugees from
central Europe."
CONGRESS ASKS MORE
REFUGEES TO CANADA
Montreal (JTA).The Canadi-
an Congress of Labor this week
announced its intention to place
before the government its recent
resolution urging Canada to of-
fer asylum to refugees. The an-
nouncement was made in a let-
ter to the Canadian Jewish Con-
gress made public here.
PALESTINE INTENDS TO
ADMIT PRO-AXIS ARABS
Cairo (WNS). The Palestine
government intends to admit bark
into the country one of the it -
tremist Arab leaders officially
held responsible for the Palestine
disorders in 1936 and 1937, it was
reliably learned here this week.

A LOCAL SUGGESTION
The proposal that local Palestine seminars, patterned after
the Palestine Round-table held at the American Jewish Confer-
ence, be established in communities throughout the country is
put forth by Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the Zionist Or-
ganization of America.
Stressing the need to provide an opportunity for non-Zionists
to meet with Zionist leaders for the purpose of a full and frank
discussion regarding Palestine, Dr. Goldman recalls that at the
American Jewish Conference "non-Zionists advanced every ar-
gument they could think of in opposition to the majority view"
and that "the results of the debate was a triumph for the irresist-
ible logic of the Zionist thesis."
In the light of the experience at the American Jewish Confer-
ence, Dr. Goldstein suggests that "in every community a group
of fifty leading men and women, non-Zionists and Zionists meet
for a week-end seminar on the Palestine resolution of the Ameri-
can Jewish Conference. This would be a worthwhile educa-
tional experience in and for itself and it would lead to a better
understanding of the subject and a better understanding of one
another," Dr. Goldman asserts.
' They," (the non-Zionists) Dr. Goldstein declares, "ventilated
their misgivings regarding the proposals to vest in the Jewish
Agency the control of immigration into Palestine and the estab-
lishment of Palestine as a Jewish Commonwealth, and brought j
out into the open the question, doubts and fears touching the |
Zionist position on Palestine, which had troubled them for years.
"Zionists had the opportunity to answer the arguments, reply
to the questions, resolve the misgivings, and allay the fears."
Not alone on the Zionist question is a local seminar needed,
but on many other local questions and issues of our organiza-
tions.
Many are prone to criticize. Some, because of lack of action,
others by virtue of the duplicity and overlapping of efforts.
Much because of lack of understanding and specific knowledge.
The majority of our people, including those active in organ-
ization endeavor, are unaware of the true purpose for the exist-
ence of their group, the workings and the actual results accom-
plished.
Since the inception of the local Federation and the establish-
ment of their budget committee, we have heard practically ev-
ery member who has served or is serving on the committee ex-
press astonishment regarding the vast amount of information
they have learned about the workings, background and accom-
plishments of the institutions that make up our national and lo-
cal community.
It would be well worth the effort to have a series of seminars
or forums, each set aside for an organization. Answers to argu-
ments, replies to questions, allaying of fears and resolving of
misgivings would result. Federation in its wider program of
community planning might do well to sponsor these programs.
It would be timely as part of its pre-campaign activity to ac-
quaint and educate its constituents as to whom their Federation
supports. Outstanding speakers and local committees of the I
respective groups could lead the programs. Much could be
accomplished.
CAN YOU FACE THE TRUTH?
By RABBI MAX SHAPIRO
Spiritual Leader of Beth David Congregation
ESditorc Not< ither In
i I ha -i'ii iiuul
al-i .,f ':: M .
We arc told that disasters set
US thinking. Only a great shock,
it seems, releases real generos-
ities and real sympathies. No
doubt wiseacres shrug their
shoulders and urge all sorts of
profound reasons way the war
should not have been. But the
point it that war shows a great
segment of human nature at its
worst. And the lesson of it all is
not that we may justify or accuse
anyone or the "One," but sur-
prisingly when men face the real
life they are near to one another
and help one another. True, if
war is the triumph of brute hu-
man naturethe love and the
pity and the quick rush to help
and the tremor of sympathy is
the triumph of real men. Many
wars and disasters have gone
across the earth, but we forget
them easily. Providence is a
terrible disciplinarian and its pu-
pils learn so sluggishly. We learn
surely, though slowly.
If this war has set you think-
ing, let me take advantage of your
faculties and reason with you.
You know a statesman has been
described as a man who uses his
tongue to hide his heart. The av-
erage person uses labels and slo-
gans to avoid the painful process
of thinking. It is much easier to
say pompously, "I am a Demo-
erat" or I am a Republican." or
"I am a Socialist." than to ex- '
plain the reason for ones rela- ',
tionship or one's attitude toward
meat governmental problems or
post-war aims. So it is much cas- '
ler to describe one's self as Or-
thodox. Conservative, or Reform
, than to analyze just what one is.
hopes for and is actually doing.
! "I am an Orthodox." he boasts,
and proceeds to order a ham I
i sandwich with a glass of milk. "I
| am a Reform. I believe in ethics."
he postulates and proceeds to eat
the heart out of his spiritual
leader by his unethical conduct, j
Labels are therefore popular.
They save thought. I do not care
whether you are a nominal, ra-
cial or religious Jew. Remem-
ber that in the eyes of the world
we are all Jews! As a result of
labels we argue and quibble child-'
ishly without making progress in
Jewish endeavors. Board mem-
Mrs have excoriated their rabbis !
many times trying to find fault;
but subconsciously seeking the
"Messiah" in the spiritual lead-
er; so as to blame him for all
their wrong-doings and lasciv-
lousness. That is why people
will constantly harp on rabbis.
Do you know why some boards
of congregations refuse to per-
mit rab^.IS to bc Present at meet-
ings? They fear the injection of
religious, ethical standards into
business discussions. Never mind
the lame excuse that in the pres-
ence of rabbis they are not free
I to discuss matters openly. That
I type hesitates not maliciously to
I attack his spiritual leader "bc-
| hind his back." I know a tradi-
tional (?) synagogue that ap-
pealed to its members not to sup-
port our starved and dying
brethren across for fear it would
stifle the income of the syna-
gogue. Even the editor of The
Floridian excoriated a number of
times the attitude of many en-
gaged in communal activities in-
stead of pointing out the evil and
j suggesting a cure. We find con-
| crete evidences of childish traits.
Instead of uniting in a city-wide
plan for Jewish education or con-
gregational affiliation with Zion-
ist groups, etc., we spend our
time as to differences in meth-
ods of procedure, thereby hind-
ering the progress of such pro-
jects. Would that I had the
space to discuss the hollowness
of modern professions among our
Jews, the continuing danger
from savage egotism, the un-
week-end necessity of Jewish
solidarity today. It is sufficient
to point out that here in Miami
and elsewhere a much needed les- ,
son of Jewish manliness is es- I
sential at this juncture of a false
refinement and an unprincipled
ambition for social prestige. Does
Dot our silence and indifference i
give the sanction to all the scoun- j
tirels and rascals we tolerate as'
company? Are we not afraid of '
the naked truth as of something
| too rude and too refined? Have j
we not dressed her up in so many j
, circumlocutions and equivoca- i
tions that we flee from her when
she appears unveiled in the beau-
ty of her purity?
We claim the title of truth's
; guardian, we Jews! On what
I kind of terms an we living with
candor and frankness in our re-
ligious and social relationship?
Not enough that petty business
|considerations and effeminate so-
ciety habits keep back from our
lips the strong words we have
almost unlearned to use, but we
are trembling with redoubled
apprehensions when it is our own
foibles that are to be pointed out,
dragged to light. It is our own
petty conceits around which we
want drawn the protecting fence
of a polite silence. To my mind,
no greater injury can bc inflicted
upon the soul of the Jew than
the constant emphasis upon anti-
semitic prejudices which has be-
come like an ulcer; for it teaches
not "Raeshes Chochmah Yiras
Adonoi""The beginning of Wis-
dom is the Fear of the Lord." but
"Raeshes Chochmah Yiras Sonai"
"The beginning of Jewish
knowledge or interest is the fear
of the anti-semite." The "ulcer"
must be cut out no matter at
what cost or mortification. We
cannot afford to be silent m the
presence of serious problems.
Our existence, our Jewish homes
must totter if we remain silent.
Let me speak out!
This week I am concluding 11
full years of service in Miami.
For the past few years I have
noticed a tendency on the part
of a number of lay leaders to garb
themselves in the hollowness of
professional egotismthe "Know-
Alls. I have been in the pulpit
about 14 years. I have never
known the time when anyone
dared dispute my right to speak !
my thoughts and proclaim my'
11< ws. People have often dis- j
agreed with me. even the editor1
of the Floridianthat is their'
right. But more often have I not
agreed with my people and never
nave I hesitated to speak my
mind. I do so now with the hope
ol re-awakening a true Jewish
spirit, for we have able people
among the laity who do not and |
win not respond to the call of I
Jewry, the call of the community, j
unless they find it "pays." We1
have people in our midst who1
profess allegiance to Judiasm but
do not live by their professions.!
We have people who do not think !
of Judaism beyond their conven-
lence and they place their con- j
venience above the mandates of
their Judaism. If that premise!
be false then why Is there a splen-'
did membership in Miami Beach

ish delegations which come to Washington now try to nT"
Under-Secretary of State Edward R. Stettinus, Jr. And 1
must be said in favor of the new under-secretary that thev
have no difficulty in seeing him Especially successful in
getting his attention is the Emergency Committee to Save the
Jews of Europe which is not exactly an American-Jewish or
ganization Though many responsible Jewish leaders con
sider the activities of this organization harmful, it seems to
me that it has some value ... Its value lies in the fact that
while achieving no concrete results, this organization, which
has branched out from the Committee for a Jewish Army is
offering serious competition to other Jewish groups and stim-
ulating them to action.
THE ZIONIST FRONT.....
Watch for unprecedented large-scale Zionist political ac-
tivities in America The American Zionist Emergency
Council has just adopted a budget of $500,000 to be spent for
such activities This is the largest budget ever adopted
for Zionist work in the United States Which goes to show
how important Zionist efforts in America are for the future
status of Palestine This reminds us that the Arab world
too is not asleep in America The latest addition to pro-
Arab activities here is the projected establishment in Wash-
ington soon of a Saudi-Arabian Legation ... It will be the
firat diplomatic legation King Saud ever established in this
country Added to the legations of other Arab countries in
Washington, it will form a stronghold in the structure of Arab
opposition to Jewish aspirations in Palestine And speak-
ing of Palestine we think of the dinner for the Jewish press
given the other day in New York by the American League
for a Free Palestine This new organization is another
branch of the many-sided activities conducted by the group
which came to this country to organize a movement for the
establishment of a Jewish army in Palestine Well, some
how, we hear no more of a campaign for a Jewish army, but
instead we are offered a program which speaks of a "He-
brew Nation" and of "Americans of Jewish Descent" This
program, as outlined at the dinner, advocates complete as-
similation for Jews in America, equal rights for Jews in Eu-
ropean countries, and a Free Palestine for Jews who feel
themselves "out of place" in their native lands ... It must
be said that none of the Jewish journalists present at the din-
ner understood this "combination program" and many did
not hesitate to ridicule it.
BREAKING A SECRET.....
If Palestine ever becomes a Jewish State awarding its own
decorations, I would recommend that Pierre van Paassen be
among the first to receive such a decoration ... His book,
"The Forgotten Ally," just published by the Dial Press, cer-
tainly entitles him to such an award ... It does a great ser-
vice for the Jews of Palestine by telling the world what they
are really doing on the battlefields to help the British armies
win the war The factual stories told by Van Paassen of
how Jewish fighters held positions under Nazi fire and will-
ingly sacrificed their lives to get behind the Nazi lines are
a real revelation Van Paassen rightly terms the achieve-
ments of the Palestine Jewish units in the British Eighth Army
the "best kept secret of the war" since Britain is very careful
not to give public recognition to Jewish valor ... But Van
Paassen breaks this "military secret" ... In his book he viv-
idly describes the exploits of the Jewish units Further-
more he proves convincingly that Jewish Palestine was one
of the factors that turned the tide against Rommel's Army at
the gates of Alexandria when the world least expected it
He tells the story of Jewish heroism on the Libyan front with
a vigor that will not be pleasent to British officials who forced
American correspondents to remain mute with regard to the
Palestine Jewish contribution to the war effort And need-
less to say, he demands that the "forgotten ally" be compen-
sated by the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine.

Everybody had been prophesying trouble in
Palestine over the question of this or that national-
m but the first storm came in Lebanon. Those who
know their Bible remember "the cedars of Leban?
on" A neighboring country to Palestine, it was
known in ancient days for its timber. The Near
East is not particularly well stocked with timber, so
that Lebanon perhaps did not have to excel too
much in this respect to win her accolade.
Lebanon today is the only Christian state in the
Near East and possibly its ties to the Christian world
may enable it to gain independence quicker than
any of the other states of the Near East Lebanon
has no oiland that may be another factor enter-
ing into the case.
It is reported that Arabs in Palestine are closely
watching the fight in Lebanon with the thought that
maybe Palestine would be the next land to attempt
to throw off the yoke of the European powers.
Our own belief, however, is that this will not
come about so easilynot so much because of Zion-
ist opposition but because England is not prepared
to let it go for her own interests. Suppose you
owned a street corner in the heart of the city. You
would figure that it is a pretty valuable piece of
property and would not easily part with it.
Palestine is such a street corner. It stands at the
intersection of three streets, Europe Ave., Asia Ave.,
and Africa Ave. Those are very important streets.
Palestine is a bridge between Asia, Africa and Eu-
rope and do you think England is going to kiss it
good bye?
Meanwhile the old "partition" plan has been
brought forth again as a solution for the Arab-Jewish
dissension. Beg pardon, I should say, a new par-
tition plan. The present partition plan saams to be
somewhat different from the old Peel plan.
And there is still another plan, it seems, urged
as an alternative by the Iraquian Premier. He
would help those Jews who have already settled in
Palestine to return to their homelands.
That is very nice of the Premier. He wouldn't
just kick them out. He would help the Jews find
homes in the countries from which they originally
came.
We presume, however, that he would take for the
Arabs the homes that the Jews have built in Pal-
estine.
The Jews in Argentina this week were reported
very much disturbed. They fear that all the anti-
Semitic steps thus far taken are but a prelude to
more severe ceasures. They fear the actual out-
break of pogroms, fostered by the anti-Semitic gov-
ernment. They even seem to suspect when it will
take place.
Jewish business institutions are reported to be
stationing guards around their buildings in antici-
pation of such government-fostered hoodlumism.
From Italy it was reported that Marshal Badoglio
has named two Jews to his cabinet. They are Guido
Jung and Mario Fano. The first was designated
Undersecretary of the Ministry of Finance and the
second was appointed to the Post Office portfolio.
The UNRRA was asked this week by the World
Jewish Congress to recognize a central international
Jewish body as an integral part of the post-war re-
lief and rehabilitation machinery. The plea was
made on the basis that the needs of the Jewish pop-
ulation "are special and unique with respect to
feeding, medical care and housing."
The councU of the UNRRA, meeting a Atlantic
City, also heard a statement from the Polish Am-
bassador to the effect that only thirty per cent ot
Poland's Jewish population still survives J*M J*
Poland, said the ambassador, are only allowed 4UU
calories per day. One would suppose that witn
such a low diet, Hitler would not have found it nec-
essary to resort to machine guns to exterminate tne
Jews. Starvation itself would have accomphshea
the same end. ,
A congressional sub-committee has bf^n hold-
ing hearings on a bill introduced by Rep. ,WaUer
Lynch of New York to close to mails to hate pro-
paganda." Those opposing the measure argue tnai
it infringes on the right of free speech Congress-
man Lynch himself declared that he does not a
that it infringes in any way on this nght. l see
no abridgement of free speech whatever. No one
has the right to make false and defamatory state-
ments about another."
A special legal committee charged with the
drafting of a memorandum on the subject ot race
kbel and anti-Semitic propaganda legislation was
named this week by the Jewish War Veterans ot tne
United States. Composed of thirty-five outstanding
jurists and lawyers throughout the country, the com-
mittee will consider the pros and cons of such leg-
wlation in accordance with the resolution adoptea
the recent encampment calling for the passage oi
laws to combat bigotry and intolerance.

Although Al Schacht has been forced to curtail
his famous road show baseball act for two succes-
sive years as a result of the tire and gasoline short-
age, he still will be able to capitalize on his title of
"The Clown Prince of Baseball." Paramount has
just signed him to do shorts of nine of his most
famous baseball tricks tricks that used to split
some 9,000,000 sides each season from Fresno to
Florida and from Coney to California Mushy
Callahan, former welterweight champ, is the son
of a most orthodox Rabbinamed Cohen Benny
Friedman once used to be an usher in a Cleveland
movie house ... A Jewish lassie, Ann Ross, is the
three-foot diving champion of America. She also
holds the high-board performance crown as well...
Sandor Glanzc, an Austrian Jewish refugee who
came over here penniless about six years ago, has
been averaging $200 a waek ever since. Sandor
used to be the world's ping pong champion and he
has been appearing at exhibitions ever since .
He recently became an American citizen Al
Aronson, of St Mary's, thai top-notch gridiron ma-
chine on the Coast, was once voted the most valu-
able player in his team's game against Fordham
University some years ago and thereby became the
first Jewish ball player to win the coveted Cardinal
Hayes Trophy annually awarded to the best player
of these two Jesuit institutions Herman Kaplan,
ace bowler, earns a neat one grand for himself
every time he bowls a perfect game provided
he wears the sweatshirt bearing the name of a soft
drink concern for whom he is making special exhi-
bition tours Once in the heat of battle, to be
exact, when he was scoring his thirty-ninth suc-
cessive twelve-strike game, he removed his shirt
and though he pitched a perfect game, lost the
money Only the game went into the records.
REMEMBER WHEN .
Benny Leonard fought Lou Tendler at the Polo
Grounds to become the first lightweight champ in
history to draw a gate of over half a million dollars
. Benny is now a Navy boxing instructor and is
having the time of his life teaching the kids how to
handle their dukes However, the same man who
used to pride himself on the fact that none of his
opponents ever mussed his hair in a fistic foray in
the ring, is now battle scarred. "Just look at these
marks," he brags. "Those kids catch on quickly.
They're the best fighters in the world."
Congressman Samuel A. Weiss of Pittsburgh this
week paid tribute to a Pittsburgh Jewish family,
which has eight sons serving in the armed forces of
the United States. The Jewish Welfare Board an-
nounced this week the names of a number of Jewish
heroes recently decorated. The Jewish record in the
war is one in which we may take great pride.
"Our whole-hearted participation in the peace
and the post-war world, far from being a sacrifice of
sovereignty, is an extension or increase of our sov-
ereignty. We are not giving up anything when we
make a contribution toward the prevention of war,
when we acquire the means to preserve order, to
control or defend our affairs."-Representative James
W. Fulbright, of Arkansas.
THE OTHER DRUMSTICK,
Another great figure of the show world has
passed from these portals. Max Reinhardt, just
past 70, was in the midst of staging a Broadway
production when life's curtain came down. He will
be remembered for his spectacular pageants of
which "The Miracle" and "Midsummer Night's
Dream" were outstanding. But morehis memory
will be cherished by the many top names whose
careers he fostered. Ernst Lutitsch, Francis Lederer,
Luise Rainer, Elizabeth Beergner were but a few of
a host of new and untried talent who got their first
opportuntiy under his direction.

Lion Feuchtwanger has stirred up a veritable
beehive of controversy locally with an article pre-
senting his conception of the Germans. He would
differentiate between the Nazi and the German,
believing the former to beb only a small percentage
of the population. Author Max Berges disagrees in
no uncertain terms declares the Germans are all
inherently Nazis, that they believed in the ultimate
domination of the world by Germany, and were
historically anti-Semitic in their literature, their
songs, and their practices.

The Wonder Child: "Hitler's Children," Edward
Golden's offspring, which cost but SI75,000 to pro-
duce?'.Till harvest a world-wide gross intake of ap-
proximately $4,500,000!
Golden is currently occupied with Louis Loch-
ner's "What About Germany?" It contains the
warning of another war the Germans may start ten
or twenty years hence and will be titled, "The
Master Race."

Al Jolson's accompanist, songwriter, Harry Akst,
most famous for his composition, "Dinah," relates
this sad tale. Wherever they appeared on their
tour of camps abroad, Al announced that he would
sing any and all requests. He did too and Harry
played them thousands of them "But," finishes
the unhappy Harry, "not once did they ask for
'Dinah'!"
Al Jolson, slowly recovering from his attack of
pneumonia and malaria, told Jack Warner, "my
number was almost called, but I asked for a defer-
ment I have to appear in that Gershwin picture,
'Rhapsody in Blue'."

Finishing his scenes in "Three Cheers for the
Boys," Pianist Arthur Rubinstein leaves for a cross-
country concert tour. He, as well as other interna-
tionally-Jcnown musicians such as Heifetz, Sto-
kowski, Klemperer, Wallenstein, etcetera, makes
his home in Los Angeles environs and appears at
the Hollywood Bowl during the season. Hence, he
was much amused at reading a letter in the Times
from a Los Angeles lady. She complained that the
Bowl concerts were not of a high standard because
there was "too much local talent!"

Lionel Royce, Viennese actor, knew no English
when he signed a contract to appear in Hollywood
pictures. He learned Macbeth's soliloquy in 14
days to prove to Louis B. Mayer that he could fulfill
the contract.

A certain let-him-be-nameless producer seems to
have joined the Sam-malaprops. With furrowed
brow he left the projection room, mumbling, "Now
I'm absolutely positive I'm not sure."

Nathan Strauss who recently purchased WMCA
radio station in New York City is the son of the
famous philanthropist and is himself the proud
father of four sonsall volunteers in the army and
navy.

Personal Pointers: Elaine Barrie has been signed
to play the role of a housekeeper in a Pasadena
Playhouse production. Ah, settling down.
Fritz Feld celebrated hts 43rd birthday, his 25th
anniversary as an actor, and his 125th role in mo-
tion pictures. Reading from left to right or vice
versa, that's a whale of a career.
Curt Siodmak, specialist in horror stories of the
Frankenstein-Dracula pattern, has just finished a
children's book called, "The Story of Anatole, the
Mule Who Won the Grand National."
Danny Kaye, going through his induction exam-
ination, was found to have a bad back. They
stamped him 4F, and he immediately requested to
be sent overseas for USO work.
Alia Nazimova, back in Hollywood for a picture
assignment, is living at her one-time home. Years
ago she named the beautiful house and grounds the
Garden of Allahafter herselt Today it is a hotel
. and she is merely a guest.
Eddie Cantor, re-enacting his own career before
the camera, is attracting so many people to his set
that the director is charging a 25-cent war stamp ad-
mission fee.

ZIONIST OFFICERS MET
IN M. B. LAST THURSDAY
Last Thursday the executive
committee of the Miami Zionist
District held a meeting at the Mi-
ami YMHA together with repre-
sentatives of various synagogues
in the City of Miami. Plans were
discussed to enlist organizational
support for the enrolling of syna-
gogue members a.- groups within
the ranks of the Miami Zionist
District. This is in line with
' is being done with syna-
gogues and temples throughout
the country Conservatives, Or-
thodox and Reformed temples
have been successful with this
plan This is a orogram seeking
synagogue affiliation with the
Zionist Organization of America.
"The Jew who belongs to a
synagogue, in Ins daily prayers,
God to return him to the
and of Zion. Almost every holi-
day function includes a prayi i
Shono Ha bo Berushalayim "
I he Zionists feel that such a
pray.-i should not stop with lip
service, bul something more con-
should be done in furthering
this prayer. For that purpose the
/.ion; ( n. anization of America
has ...-ked members of the syna-
gogues m particular to join the
/.ioni.-t Organization," the local
committi. -t,,t, ,i
Rabbi Max Shapiro and Mau-

Food Restaurant, 645 Collins
Avenue. Miami Beach, and the
addition thereto of a strictly
kosher dining room serving meat

Accepted as an adherent of
Kashrus in every phase, Mr. Gins-
burg is well known here as one
of the operators of the Tides
Hotel, which is now in the serv-
ice of the United States army as
a military facility. The True
Farm Food Restaurant under
Ginsburg's management has. up
until this time, been an exclusive
vegetarian establishment. The
acquisition of additional adjoin-
ing space has enlarged the quar-
ters sufficiently to provide the
kosher meat dining room. The
Food Emporium will be under
the personal direction of Mr
Ginsburg and will have rabbinic
supervision for dietary requisites
and will be open every day of
the week Inspection is invited

"GOD IS MY CO-PILOT"
Did you know that three of
the names mentioned by the
author of "God is My Co-Pil-
ot" are Jewish?
Their religion is not stated,
but the Bureau of War Records
in New York City had their
names on file and so was able
to add them to the chapter of
Jewish bravery and accom-
plishment in the present war.
The Bureau depends for this
information entirely on the
men and women like yourself
who keep your local War Rec-
ords Committee notified of all
Jewish enlistments.
Let your local War Records
Committee know the names of
Jewish men and women in the
armed forces. If and when they
distinguish themselves or win
promotions they can then be
identified at once as a member
of the Jewish community. Their
accomplishments can do more
than give you a sense of pride
they can serve the Jewish
community, too.

Stein's head was banged

The upper half of his body was

The waist gunner saw what was

he performed the rescue.

go back with a rescue party and
save what he could of the rapidly
sinking ship. The Yorktown was
lost, but Comdr. Patterson's acts
of bravery aboard the carrier in

in store for them. Every act a

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 26, 1943 *knistfhridin,fi PAGE FIVE IT HPKEIJJET m BY MILTON BROWN Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc. WITH THE JEWS IN SPORTS By MORRIS WETHER Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc. Everybody had been prophesying trouble in Palestine over the question of this or that nationalm but the first storm came in Lebanon. Those who know their Bible remember "the cedars of Leban? on A neighboring country to Palestine, it was known in ancient days for its timber. The Near East is not particularly well stocked with timber, so that Lebanon perhaps did not have to excel too much in this respect to win her accolade. Lebanon today is the only Christian state in the Near East and possibly its ties to the Christian world may enable it to gain independence quicker than any of the other states of the Near East Lebanon has no oil—and that may be another factor entering into the case. It is reported that Arabs in Palestine are closely watching the fight in Lebanon with the thought that maybe Palestine would be the next land to attempt to throw off the yoke of the European powers. Our own belief, however, is that this will not come about so easily—not so much because of Zionist opposition but because England is not prepared to let it go for her own interests. Suppose you owned a street corner in the heart of the city. You would figure that it is a pretty valuable piece of property and would not easily part with it. Palestine is such a street corner. It stands at the intersection of three streets, Europe Ave., Asia Ave., and Africa Ave. Those are very important streets. Palestine is a bridge between Asia, Africa and Europe and do you think England is going to kiss it good bye? Meanwhile the old "partition" plan has been brought forth again as a solution for the Arab-Jewish dissension. Beg pardon, I should say, a new partition plan. The present partition plan saams to be somewhat different from the old Peel plan. And there is still another plan, it seems, urged as an alternative by the Iraquian Premier. He would help those Jews who have already settled in Palestine to return to their homelands. That is very nice of the Premier. He wouldn't just kick them out. He would help the Jews find homes in the countries from which they originally came. We presume, however, that he would take for the Arabs the homes that the Jews have built in Palestine. The Jews in Argentina this week were reported very much disturbed. They fear that all the antiSemitic steps thus far taken are but a prelude to more severe ceasures. They fear the actual outbreak of pogroms, fostered by the anti-Semitic government. They even seem to suspect when it will take place. Jewish business institutions are reported to be stationing guards around their buildings in anticipation of such government-fostered hoodlumism. From Italy it was reported that Marshal Badoglio has named two Jews to his cabinet. They are Guido Jung and Mario Fano. The first was designated Undersecretary of the Ministry of Finance and the second was appointed to the Post Office portfolio. The UNRRA was asked this week by the World Jewish Congress to recognize a central international Jewish body as an integral part of the post-war relief and rehabilitation machinery. The plea was made on the basis that the needs of the Jewish population "are special and unique with respect to feeding, medical care and housing." The councU of the UNRRA, meeting a Atlantic City, also heard a statement from the Polish Ambassador to the effect that only thirty per cent ot Poland's Jewish population still survives J*M J* Poland, said the ambassador, are only allowed 4UU calories per day. One would suppose that witn such a low diet, Hitler would not have found it necessary to resort to machine guns to exterminate tne Jews. Starvation itself would have accomphshea the same end. A congressional sub-committee has bf^n holding hearings on a bill introduced by Rep. WaUer £ Lynch of New York to close to mails to hate propaganda." Those opposing the measure argue tnai it infringes on the right of free speech Congressman Lynch himself declared that he does not a that it infringes in any way on this nght. l see no abridgement of free speech whatever. No one has the right to make false and defamatory statements about another." A special legal committee charged with the drafting of a memorandum on the subject ot race kbel and anti-Semitic propaganda legislation was named this week by the Jewish War Veterans ot tne United States. Composed of thirty-five outstanding jurists and lawyers throughout the country, the committee will consider the pros and cons of such legwlation in accordance with the resolution adoptea the recent encampment calling for the passage oi la ws to combat bigotry and intolerance. niJEIIJIFILNFlLK BY HELEN ZIGMOND Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc. Although Al Schacht has been forced to curtail his famous road show baseball act for two successive years as a result of the tire and gasoline shortage, he still will be able to capitalize on his title of "The Clown Prince of Baseball." Paramount has just signed him to do shorts of nine of his most famous baseball tricks tricks that used to split some 9,000,000 sides each season from Fresno to Florida and from Coney to California Mushy Callahan, former welterweight champ, is the son of a most orthodox Rabbi—named Cohen Benny Friedman once used to be an usher in a Cleveland movie house ... A Jewish lassie, Ann Ross, is the three-foot diving champion of America. She also holds the high-board performance crown as well... Sandor Glanzc, an Austrian Jewish refugee who came over here penniless about six years ago, has been averaging $200 a waek ever since. Sandor used to be the world's ping pong champion and he has been appearing at exhibitions ever since He recently became an American citizen Al Aronson, of St Mary's, thai top-notch gridiron machine on the Coast, was once voted the most valuable player in his team's game against Fordham University some years ago and thereby became the first Jewish ball player to win the coveted Cardinal Hayes Trophy annually awarded to the best player of these two Jesuit institutions Herman Kaplan, ace bowler, earns a neat one grand for himself every time he bowls a perfect game provided he wears the sweatshirt bearing the name of a soft drink concern for whom he is making special exhibition tours Once in the heat of battle, to be exact, when he was scoring his thirty-ninth successive twelve-strike game, he removed his shirt and though he pitched a perfect game, lost the money Only the game went into the records. REMEMBER WHEN Benny Leonard fought Lou Tendler at the Polo Grounds to become the first lightweight champ in history to draw a gate of over half a million dollars Benny is now a Navy boxing instructor and is having the time of his life teaching the kids how to handle their dukes However, the same man who used to pride himself on the fact that none of his opponents ever mussed his hair in a fistic foray in the ring, is now battle scarred. "Just look at these marks," he brags. "Those kids catch on quickly. They're the best fighters in the world." Congressman Samuel A. Weiss of Pittsburgh this week paid tribute to a Pittsburgh Jewish family, which has eight sons serving in the armed forces of the United States. The Jewish Welfare Board announced this week the names of a number of Jewish heroes recently decorated. The Jewish record in the war is one in which we may take great pride. "Our whole-hearted participation in the peace and the post-war world, far from being a sacrifice of sovereignty, is an extension or increase of our sovereignty. We are not giving up anything when we make a contribution toward the prevention of war, when we acquire the means to preserve order, to control or defend our affairs."-Representative James W. Fulbright, of Arkansas. THE OTHER DRUMSTICK, Another great figure of the show world has passed from these portals. Max Reinhardt, just past 70, was in the midst of staging a Broadway production when life's curtain came down. He will be remembered for his spectacular pageants of which "The Miracle" and "Midsummer Night's Dream" were outstanding. But more—his memory will be cherished by the many top names whose careers he fostered. Ernst Lutitsch, Francis Lederer, Luise Rainer, Elizabeth Beergner were but a few of a host of new and untried talent who got their first opportuntiy under his direction. • • • Lion Feuchtwanger has stirred up a veritable beehive of controversy locally with an article presenting his conception of the Germans. He would differentiate between the Nazi and the German, believing the former to beb only a small percentage of the population. Author Max Berges disagrees in no uncertain terms declares the Germans are all inherently Nazis, that they believed in the ultimate domination of the world by Germany, and were historically anti-Semitic in their literature, their songs, and their practices. • • • The Wonder Child: "Hitler's Children," Edward Golden's offspring, which cost but SI75,000 to produce?'.Till harvest a world-wide gross intake of approximately $4,500,000! Golden is currently occupied with Louis Lochner's "What About Germany?" It contains the warning of another war the Germans may start ten or twenty years hence and will be titled, "The Master Race." • • • Al Jolson's accompanist, songwriter, Harry Akst, most famous for his composition, "Dinah," relates this sad tale. Wherever they appeared on their tour of camps abroad, Al announced that he would sing any and all requests. He did too and Harry played them thousands of them "But," finishes the unhappy Harry, "not once did they ask for 'Dinah'!" Al Jolson, slowly recovering from his attack of pneumonia and malaria, told Jack Warner, "my number was almost called, but I asked for a deferment I have to appear in that Gershwin picture, 'Rhapsody in Blue'." • • • Finishing his scenes in "Three Cheers for the Boys," Pianist Arthur Rubinstein leaves for a crosscountry concert tour. He, as well as other internationally-Jcnown musicians such as Heifetz, Stokowski, Klemperer, Wallenstein, etcetera, makes his home in Los Angeles environs and appears at the Hollywood Bowl during the season. Hence, he was much amused at reading a letter in the Times from a Los Angeles lady. She complained that the Bowl concerts were not of a high standard because there was "too much local talent!" • • • Lionel Royce, Viennese actor, knew no English when he signed a contract to appear in Hollywood pictures. He learned Macbeth's soliloquy in 14 days to prove to Louis B. Mayer that he could fulfill the contract. • • • A certain let-him-be-nameless producer seems to have joined the Sam-malaprops. With furrowed brow he left the projection room, mumbling, "Now I'm absolutely positive I'm not sure." • • • Nathan Strauss who recently purchased WMCA radio station in New York City is the son of the famous philanthropist and is himself the proud father of four sons—all volunteers in the army and navy. • • • Personal Pointers: Elaine Barrie has been signed to play the role of a housekeeper in a Pasadena Playhouse production. Ah, settling down. Fritz Feld celebrated hts 43rd birthday, his 25th anniversary as an actor, and his 125th role in motion pictures. Reading from left to right or vice versa, that's a whale of a career. Curt Siodmak, specialist in horror stories of the Frankenstein-Dracula pattern, has just finished a children's book called, "The Story of Anatole, the Mule Who Won the Grand National." Danny Kaye, going through his induction examination, was found to have a bad back. They stamped him 4F, and he immediately requested to be sent overseas for USO work. Alia Nazimova, back in Hollywood for a picture assignment, is living at her one-time home. Years ago she named the beautiful house and grounds the Garden of Allah—after herselt Today it is a hotel and she is merely a guest. Eddie Cantor, re-enacting his own career before the camera, is attracting so many people to his set that the director is charging a 25-cent war stamp admission fee.

"GOD IS MY CO-PILOT" Did you know that three of the names mentioned by the author of "God is My Co-Pilot" are Jewish? Their religion is not stated, but the Bureau of War Records in New York City had their names on file and so was able to add them to the chapter of Jewish bravery and accomplishment in the present war. The Bureau depends for this information entirely on the men and women like yourself who keep your local War Records Committee notified of all Jewish enlistments. Let your local War Records Committee know the names of Jewish men and women in the armed forces. If and when they distinguish themselves or win promotions they can then be identified at once as a member of the Jewish community. Their accomplishments can do more than give you a sense of pride —they can serve the Jewish community, too. NAT ROTH. Chairman War Records Committee Greater Miami Army-Navy Committee co P. O. Box 2973 Miami 18. Florida SGT. STEIN GOT COLD FEET DURING FLIGHT Cpl. Jack Shapiro, 24. of Philadelphia, Pa., was wounded in the North African campaign. He was assault on Italy. Altogether, ne S/Sgt. Schiller Cohen. 23. of frozen feet, the Bronx, is one of the most decorated flyers in the American forces. He holds the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal, ten Oak Leaf Clusters, and a squadron citation—a total of 13 decorations. Sergeant Cohen's record appeared in the honor roll of June 21, when he had but two medals to his name. A tail gunner, waist gunner, and photographer aboard a B-17, Sergeant Cohen was with the first American aircraft to bomb Nazi-held Europe, flew with the first Fortresses to attack enemy territory in North Africa, and participated in the opening aerial German fighter planes spat shells at a big Maurauder bomber and set it afire as the ship sped over France. The tail gunner, Technical Sergeant L a v e r n e Stein, started to jump. But his parachute opened too soon and slipped through the escape hatch. Stein's head was banged against the interior of the plane. The upper half of his body was inside while the rest of him dangled in a fierce wind. The wind ripped off his flying boots and his shoes. The waist gunner saw what was going on and pulled the unconscious Stein to safety. The waist gunner was wounded himself as he performed the rescue. At length the fires aboard the Marauder were smothered and the speeding giant, punched full of holes, its landing gear out of action, crash-landed successfully at its home base. Together with the waist gunner, Sgt. Stein was removed to a hospital and examined. He looked as if just about everything the doctors discovered, the worst he had caught was a case of was wrong with him. Actually, [ ONALLTHEFRDNTS Lt. Henry H.

Lieutenant Turick was recently listed with a group of American fighter heroes who had completed a year of action in New Guinea, where they shot down a total of 1148 Jap planes. In six weeks of aerial combat, Turick took part in 25 sorties. He is a graduate of Cass Technical High School and of Wayne University in Detroit. In 1941 he joined the R. C. A.

When the aircraft carrier Yorktown was hit by enemy planes and submarine torpedoes during the Battle of Midway on June 7, 1942, Lt. Comdr. Patterson volunteered to go back with a rescue party and save what he could of the rapidly sinking ship. The Yorktown was lost, but Comdr.

J., a Jewish Welfare Board affiliate, mailed more than 500 gift packages to association members in the armed forces nearly a year ago. The packages were to arrive at the various posts in time for Hanukkah. Recently the postman returned one of these packages. It had been addressed to Lt. Joseph Feinstein, MacDill Field, Fla. Feinstein had been transferred by the time the package reached that point, and the postal service began doggedly forwarding it until it had sailed halfway around the world. Although the meanderings of the package have resulted in the addition of numerous scribbled addresses, it is possible to decipher enough to know that the package had been across the ocean twice. It was taken in Alexandria several times. Someone in Alexandria finally wrote Sgt. Alton Lipkin. 29, of Minneapolis, Minn., has been awarded the Silver Star for gallantry in action in New Guinea. He was in a machine gun nest when one of his men was wounded by enemy fire. Lipkin, risking his life in face of an unceasing machine gun barrage, pulled his comrade to safety. He suffered minor shrapnel wounds on his face, but after one night in the hospital he returned to the front. Sgt. Lipkin was a wholesale dress salesman in civilian life." Ensign Joseph I.

Though there are only 27 Jews among the 700 Poles in the camp, i the Jewish men, women and children there are addressed as %  "mangy Jews" and often beaten, j Cries of "Jews to Palestine" and "Death to the Jews" can be heard often in the camp. Swastikas | have been draw on the entrances: to the sleeping quarters of the Jews, and stones and mud were thrown through the windows of | the room where Jews pray on holidays. Even the few Jewish children in the camp are reported to be persecuted without any attempt by the Polish administration of the camp to put an end to the anti-Jewish hooliganism, the reporter of the Mexican paper established. From other sources it was learned that the Jewish Community Council in Mexico City, anxious to rescue the Jews from these indignities, offered to take them from the Polish camp and maintain them with community funds. The Polish minister, however, rejected the offer, declaring that "the Polish authorities make no distinction between Jews and non-Jews." At the same time the Jews were penalized for sending a complaint to the united States ambassador in Mexico and to Jewish relief organizations in New York. The group Of 27 Jews consists of 15 persons who came from Russia to where they escaped after the German army invaded Poland, and 12 who reached BomLav. Several of the latter had -ration visas to the United States when arriving m Bombay. but all of them had to sign a statement pledging acceptance of the terms of the Polish-Mexican agreement which provides for their return to Poland aftci the war and prohibits them from doing any w,„k while in Mexico. Thev assert, however, that the Polish consul id Bombay told them at that time that their signing of the statement was a mere ormality. that they would have reedorn of action ,n Mexico and if thev so wished, they could arrange for their entrance into the United States. B. LEVINTHAL RESIGNS FROM AJC AS PROTEST New York (WNS).—Rabbi B. L. Leventhal of Philadelphia, dean of American orthodox rabbis and one ol the five founders of the American Jewish Committee, today resigned from the committee in protest against "its utterly indi fensible" secession from the i nan Jewish Conference. In a letter to Judge Joseph M. Pros k a ue r. president ol the Ann rcan Jewish Committee. Rabbi Leventhal voiced "profound regret that alter a continuous association with the American Jewish Committee since it was first instituted in our city (Philadelphia! in the year 1906. I find it impossible to remain a member of it any longer and must tender my resignation, to take effect at once." POLES JEWS H REPRESENT !" ON RELIEF BOARDS New York (JTA).—Inclusion of representatives of the Jews in Poland in the relief and rehabilitation agencies of the Polish government was asked this week by the American Federation for Polish Jews and the representation of Polish Jewry to admimsiter the specific and pressing needs of the remaining Jewish population in Poland. The request was made in a memoranI dum submitted to Jan Kwapinski. head of the Polish delegation at the council of tfle UNRRA. now in session in Atlantic City. Emphasizing the moral value of the participation of the recipients themselves in the administering of relief and rehabilitation, the memorandum proposes that the representation of Polish Jewiv consisting of Polish Jews now in the United States who were formerly acknowledged and official leaders in the Jewish community in Poland, be recognized as the responsible representatives of the Jews in Poland until such nine as Polish Jewry itself decides on the most desirable form of representation. O.S.S.R.IO New York (JTA).—The World Ji v. ill Congress this week announ K 'i thai plans are now being made to evacuate a number of i Jews who are now in the U.S.S.R. to Iran, whence they will emigrate to various countries. In the selection of candidates for evacuation from the U.S.S.R., preference will be given to the immediate families of Jews who arc still in the Polish military forces or who died during this war while in Polish service, and relatives of Polish Jews who are serving in any of the other Allied armies. A limited number of persons who have no relatives in the Polish or other Allied armies may also be evacuated, the announcement said. Relatives of refugees known to be at present in the U.S.S.R., and who have written letters substantiating this receeived within the past six months, are urged to apply to the World Jewish Congress for the necessary applications for the inclusion of their relatives' or friends' names in the evacuation candidate list. London (JTA). —The present co-operation between the Jews of the Soviet Union and the Jewish .communities in the rest of the world will continue after the war, it was stated here by Lt. Col. Itzik Feffer, one of the two Russian Jewish delegates, addressing a meeting called by the Federation of Jewish Relief Organizations. The meeting launched a campaign to collect clothing for refugees and evacuees in Russia.

Powell, 70 former judge of the Georgia Court of Appeals. The revelation was made in a book, "I Can Go Home Now, by Judge Powell, which has recently been published by the University of North Carolina Press. Judge Powell wrote that he knows who killed Mary Phagan; that he "could never honorably make the information public as long as certain persons are still living, and that he expected to write down, and seal what he knew with instructions that it is not to be i opened until certain persons are idead." The former Court of Appeals judge declared here in a press interview last week that he could not be compelled to testify before a grand jury now because he received his information in his capacity as an attorney, and that he could not divulge the name ot the real murderer because to do so would be violating a confidential communication from a client to an attorney. Montreal (JTA).—Maurice Duplessis, former premier of Quebec and present leader of the Union Nationale party, was accused this week of spreading false rumors with the intention of harming the petition now being circulated in Canada on behalf of the Jewish refugees. The accusation was made by the Rev. C. E. Silcox of Toronto, director of the Canadian Conference of Christians and Jews, who spoke at services in which four Christian congregations as well as members of Cornwall's Jewish community participated. He referred to the statement made a week ago by Mr. Dupessis to the effect "that a Zionist group was conspiring to flood Quebec farms with 100.000 Jewish refugees from central Europe."

Box 2973 Phone 2-1141 Entered as Second Class Matter July 4, 1930 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 26. 1943 CHESHVAN 28, 5704 VOLUME 16 NUMBER 48 A LOCAL SUGGESTION The proposal that local Palestine seminars, patterned after the Palestine Round-table held at the American Jewish Conference, be established in communities throughout the country is put forth by Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the Zionist Organization of America. Stressing the need to provide an opportunity for non-Zionists to meet with Zionist leaders for the purpose of a full and frank discussion regarding Palestine, Dr. Goldman recalls that at the American Jewish Conference "non-Zionists advanced every argument they could think of in opposition to the majority view" and that "the results of the debate was a triumph for the irresistible logic of the Zionist thesis." In the light of the experience at the American Jewish Conference, Dr. Goldstein suggests that "in every community a group of fifty leading men and women, non-Zionists and Zionists meet for a week-end seminar on the Palestine resolution of the American Jewish Conference. This would be a worthwhile educational experience in and for itself and it would lead to a better understanding of the subject and a better understanding of one another," Dr. Goldman asserts. They," (the non-Zionists) Dr. Goldstein declares, "ventilated their misgivings regarding the proposals to vest in the Jewish Agency the control of immigration into Palestine and the establishment of Palestine as a Jewish Commonwealth, and brought j out into the open the question, doubts and fears touching the | Zionist position on Palestine, which had troubled them for years. "Zionists had the opportunity to answer the arguments, reply to the questions, resolve the misgivings, and allay the fears." Not alone on the Zionist question is a local seminar needed, but on many other local questions and issues of our organizations. Many are prone to criticize. Some, because of lack of action, others by virtue of the duplicity and overlapping of efforts. Much because of lack of understanding and specific knowledge. The majority of our people, including those active in organization endeavor, are unaware of the true purpose for the existence of their group, the workings and the actual results accomplished. Since the inception of the local Federation and the establishment of their budget committee, we have heard practically every member who has served or is serving on the committee express astonishment regarding the vast amount of information they have learned about the workings, background and accomplishments of the institutions that make up our national and local community. It would be well worth the effort to have a series of seminars or forums, each set aside for an organization. Answers to arguments, replies to questions, allaying of fears and resolving of misgivings would result. Federation in its wider program of community planning might do well to sponsor these programs. It would be timely as part of its pre-campaign activity to acquaint and educate its constituents as to whom their Federation supports. Outstanding speakers and local committees of the I respective groups could lead the programs. Much could be accomplished. CAN YOU FACE THE TRUTH? By RABBI MAX SHAPIRO Spiritual Leader of Beth David Congregation ESditorc Not< ither In • i • I ha -i'ii iiuul %  •al-i .,f ':: %  % %  % % % %  M We arc told that disasters set US thinking. Only a great shock, it seems, releases real generosities and real sympathies. No doubt wiseacres shrug their shoulders and urge all sorts of profound reasons way the war should not have been. But the point it that war shows a great segment of human nature at its worst. And the lesson of it all is not that we may justify or accuse anyone or the "One," but surprisingly when men face the real life they are near to one another and help one another. True, if war is the triumph of brute human nature—the love and the pity and the quick rush to help and the tremor of sympathy is the triumph of real men. Many wars and disasters have gone across the earth, but we forget them easily. Providence is a terrible disciplinarian and its pupils learn so sluggishly. We learn surely, though slowly. If this war has set you thinking, let me take advantage of your faculties and reason with you. You know a statesman has been described as a man who uses his tongue to hide his heart. The average person uses labels and slogans to avoid the painful process of thinking. It is much easier to say pompously, "I am a Demoerat" or I am a Republican." or "I am a Socialist." than to ex' plain the reason for ones rela', tionship or one's attitude toward meat governmental problems or post-war aims. So it is much cas' ler to describe one's self as Orthodox. Conservative, or Reform than to analyze just what one is. hopes for and is actually doing. "I am an Orthodox." he boasts, and proceeds to order a ham I i sandwich with a glass of milk. "I | am a Reform. I believe in ethics." he postulates and proceeds to eat the heart out of his spiritual leader by his unethical conduct, j Labels are therefore popular. They save thought. I do not care whether you are a nominal, racial or religious Jew. Remember that in the eyes of the world we are all Jews! As a result of labels we argue and quibble child-' ishly without making progress in Jewish endeavors. Board memMrs have excoriated their rabbis many times trying to find fault; but subconsciously seeking the "Messiah" in the spiritual leader; so as to blame him for all their wrong-doings and lascivlousness. That is why people will constantly harp on rabbis. Do you know why some boards of congregations refuse to permit r ab ^. IS to bc Present at meetings? They fear the injection of religious, ethical standards into business discussions. Never mind the lame excuse that in the presence of rabbis they are not free I to discuss matters openly. That I type hesitates not maliciously to I attack his spiritual leader "bc| hind his back." I know a traditional (?) synagogue that appealed to its members not to support our starved and dying brethren across for fear it would stifle the income of the synagogue. Even the editor of The Floridian excoriated a number of times the attitude of many engaged in communal activities instead of pointing out the evil and j suggesting a cure. We find con| crete evidences of childish traits. Instead of uniting in a city-wide plan for Jewish education or congregational affiliation with Zionist groups, etc., we spend our time as to differences in methods of procedure, thereby hindering the progress of such projects. Would that I had the space to discuss the hollowness of modern professions among our Jews, the continuing danger from savage egotism, the unweek-end necessity of Jewish solidarity today. It is sufficient to point out that here in Miami and elsewhere a much needed les, son of Jewish manliness is esI sential at this juncture of a false refinement and an unprincipled ambition for social prestige. Does Dot our silence and indifference i give the sanction to all the scounj tirels and rascals we tolerate as' company? Are we not afraid of the naked truth as of something | too rude and too refined? Have j we not dressed her up in so many j circumlocutions and equivocai tions that we flee from her when she appears unveiled in the beauty of her purity? We claim the title of truth's ; guardian, we Jews! On what I kind of terms an we living with candor and frankness in our religious and social relationship? Not enough that petty business |considerations and effeminate society habits keep back from our lips the strong words we have almost unlearned to use, but we are trembling with redoubled apprehensions when it is our own foibles that are to be pointed out, dragged to light. It is our own petty conceits around which we want drawn the protecting fence of a polite silence. To my mind, no greater injury can bc inflicted upon the soul of the Jew than the constant emphasis upon antisemitic prejudices which has become like an ulcer; for it teaches not "Raeshes Chochmah Yiras Adonoi"—"The beginning of Wisdom is the Fear of the Lord." but "Raeshes Chochmah Yiras Sonai" —"The beginning of Jewish knowledge or interest is the fear of the anti-semite." The "ulcer" must be cut out no matter at what cost or mortification. We cannot afford to be silent m the presence of serious problems. Our existence, our Jewish homes must totter if we remain silent. Let me speak out! This week I am concluding 11 full years of service in Miami. For the past few years I have noticed a tendency on the part of a number of lay leaders to garb themselves in the hollowness of professional egotism—the "KnowAlls. I have been in the pulpit about 14 years. I have never known the time when anyone dared dispute my right to speak my thoughts and proclaim my' 11< ws. People have often disj agreed with me. even the editor 1 of the Floridian—that is their right. But more often have I not agreed with my people and never nave I hesitated to speak my mind. I do so now with the hope ol re-awakening a true Jewish spirit, for we have able people among the laity who do not and | win not respond to the call of I Jewry, the call of the community, j unless they find it "pays." We 1 have people in our midst who 1 profess allegiance to Judiasm but do not live by their professions.! We have people who do not think of Judaism beyond their convenlence and they place their conj venience above the mandates of their Judaism. If that premise! be false then why Is there a splen-' did membership in Miami Beach Zionist district of 500 which is very commendable when the same lay leaders lived here before and yet did naught to inSh!? l ^, Zionist membership when solidly we were one family Mni a,e ?.V ne •'•" Gre atcr Miami Must a Goy," whom we feted who sold himself to the Z O A against our wish after advising them arouse our people toward a devotion for Zion?

Europe What the State Department actually SZSS to do is to consider a plan for rescue work to be carried through the Intergovernmental Committee which was T panded after the Bermuda Conference Most of the 1 ish delegations which come to Washington now try to nT" Under-Secretary of State Edward R. Stettinus, Jr. And 1 must be said in favor of the new under-secretary that thev have no difficulty in seeing him Especially successful in getting his attention is the Emergency Committee to Save the Jews of Europe which is not exactly an American-Jewish or ganization Though many responsible Jewish leaders con sider the activities of this organization harmful, it seems to me that it has some value ... Its value lies in the fact that while achieving no concrete results, this organization, which has branched out from the Committee for a Jewish Army is offering serious competition to other Jewish groups and stimulating them to action. THE ZIONIST FRONT Watch for unprecedented large-scale Zionist political activities in America The American Zionist Emergency Council has just adopted a budget of $500,000 to be spent for such activities This is the largest budget ever adopted for Zionist work in the United States Which goes to show how important Zionist efforts in America are for the future status of Palestine This reminds us that the Arab world too is not asleep in America The latest addition to proArab activities here is the projected establishment in Washington soon of a Saudi-Arabian Legation ... It will be the firat diplomatic legation King Saud ever established in this country Added to the legations of other Arab countries in Washington, it will form a stronghold in the structure of Arab opposition to Jewish aspirations in Palestine And speaking of Palestine we think of the dinner for the Jewish press given the other day in New York by the American League for a Free Palestine This new organization is another branch of the many-sided activities conducted by the group which came to this country to organize a movement for the establishment of a Jewish army in Palestine Well, some how, we hear no more of a campaign for a Jewish army, but instead we are offered a program which speaks of a "Hebrew Nation" and of "Americans of Jewish Descent" This program, as outlined at the dinner, advocates complete assimilation for Jews in America, equal rights for Jews in European countries, and a Free Palestine for Jews who feel themselves "out of place" in their native lands ... It must be said that none of the Jewish journalists present at the dinner understood this "combination program" and many did not hesitate to ridicule it. BREAKING A SECRET If Palestine ever becomes a Jewish State awarding its own decorations, I would recommend that Pierre van Paassen be among the first to receive such a decoration ... His book, "The Forgotten Ally," just published by the Dial Press, certainly entitles him to such an award ... It does a great service for the Jews of Palestine by telling the world what they are really doing on the battlefields to help the British armies win the war The factual stories told by Van Paassen of how Jewish fighters held positions under Nazi fire and willingly sacrificed their lives to get behind the Nazi lines are a real revelation Van Paassen rightly terms the achievements of the Palestine Jewish units in the British Eighth Army the "best kept secret of the war" since Britain is very careful not to give public recognition to Jewish valor ... But Van Paassen breaks this "military secret" ... In his book he vividly describes the exploits of the Jewish units Furthermore he proves convincingly that Jewish Palestine was one of the factors that turned the tide against Rommel's Army at the gates of Alexandria when the world least expected it • • He tells the story of Jewish heroism on the Libyan front with a vigor that will not be pleasent to British officials who forced American correspondents to remain mute with regard to the Palestine Jewish contribution to the war effort And needless to say, he demands that the "forgotten ally" be compensated by the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine.

If that premise be false then why are our true lay leaders so "ELOQUENTLY silent in defending the position of "right" versus "wrong' ? It is simple to be a composite "mishmash and sit by when leaders or causes are attacked. There arc weak and strong Rabbis as well as lay leaders, but surely it is the duty of decent, upright Jews to clamor for things that are right instead of sitting by and in the parlors to attack such leaders. If such people are hurt then it is a "Chillul Ha-Shaem" — otherwise, let the Rabbis worry. If they cast aspersions and hurt others, it is for "Kiddush Ha-Shaem"—never mind that they trample upon principles and ideals which honest Jews uphold.
