IRVING DAVIDSON
Jewish people possess a sense of
humor as the greatest Jewish his-

has written numerous articles in
Jewish publications and is now
completing a volume on Jewish

Drawing on a vast store of
Jewish humor, Davidson keeps
his audience in one continuous
fit of laughter. His popularity
is evident from the fact that he

IS ENDED TUESDAY
Concluding the first November
racing in Florida history on Tues-
day night, the West Flagler Ken-
nel Club is rolling ahead each
weekday night to the greatest
greyhound racing meet ever in
this states' history.
With the conclusion of the
November racing, approximately
two weeks, the popular down-
town West Flagler center erased
every attendance and mutuel
record of the state's greyhound
racing records for any time of the
year. This indicates that with
the coming of mid-December,
even more sensational records
will be posted, this including the
racing marks which already are
attracting widesuread attention.
Starting last Tuesday night.
West Flagler inaugurated a new
schedule of 10 races nightly
rather than the former 12 events.
Starting at 8 p. m., this gives
patrons additional between-race
time and more convenience in
wagering with the large crowds.
The final 10th race each night, a
breath-taking hurdle event, goes
to the post at 11:34 p. m. The
daily double has been changed
to the second and third races in-
stead of the former first and third
and the nightly headline pack
goes in the eighth race rather
than the ffirmer 10 h.
Throughout the last two and a
half weeks, the mutuel returns
show a domination of favorites
although the quiniela wagering
on each race has given the long-
shot players many a thrill into
the hundreds of dollars.

The effort to stimulate the sales of Jewish books comes
strangely enough at a time when publishers lists are full of
books that deal to some extent if not with Jewish themes, at
least with the Jews. The book "Under Cover," for example, an
expose of the fascist anti-Semitic currents in America, is today ibas. And when I say "Shonm v-
one of the best sellers. Pierre Van Paassen's "Our Forqotten Shabbas." I do not merely mean
Ally" dealing also with the Jews and Palestine is another book peopk*
that seems destined for the best-seller class. Sholem Asch's
works might perhaps also be cited in this connection.
The odd part of this phenomenon is the fact that most of
these books dealing with the Jew are purchased not by Jews,
but by non-Jews. This, of course, is a very happy fact. It is
good to know that our Christian neighbors are interested enough
to seek to learn the truth about us. Gratifying as this phenom-
enon is, there still remains good reason for a Jewish Book Month.
The fact is, that Jews themselves have not been buyers of Jewish
books that one has a right to expect. One could easily list any
number of good works dealing with Jewish themes, the number
of whose Jewish readers is very small.
We are traditionally "the people of the Book." If we are to
live up to this name, we must improve the patronage of Jewish I charitable organizations and edu-
literatureand we must in particular patronize more such works'ia,'onaI establishments all over
which deal with the deeper, if less sensational currents, of Jew- '
ish thought. To be a Jew means to possess a Jewish philosophy,
and to share a Jewish idealism and for this, we need communion
with Jewish literature.

These individuals are not Shom-

MORE THAN A PREDICTION
Unrecognized by most Jews, there is gradually being built up
in American Jewish community life a set of standards and forces
not too dissimilar from the authority that was the kehillah of Eu-
rope. American Jewry is maturing and with that coming of age
is more or less voluntarily assuming the same obligations and
the same burdens and the same responsibilities as those our
European progenitors bore a hundred years ago.
For instance there has developed a set of standards of giving
to local Jewish welfare funds which cannot be denied and which
forces even the miserly to do their share. In respect to Jewish
education we are coming to the point where the parent who ov-
erlooks the Jewish education of his child will be subject to cen-
sure. A case in point is the Hillel Foundations which hardly
any student can refuse to join without publicly acknowledging
assimilationist desires. And as far as our communal institutions
and agencies are concerned we long ago accepted the respon-
sibility for their support.
Without losing force, force is being used. The authority of
the Catholic Hierarchy does not exist in Jewish life, yet the Jew
is performing his Jewish tasks just as if that authority were in-
vested in Jewish leadership. Of course there are some who
escape, but they know full well they are shirking their respon-
sibilities, and this tends to make the defection temporary, and
more often than not the unorganized and unaffiliated Jew comes
back into the fold.
This is only a trend towards an ideal situation, which will be
the American Jewry of twenty-five to fifty years from now. But
enough evidence of the tendency is obvious to make this more
than a prediction. The student of American Jewish life of the
past ten years can see the crystallization of many of the necessi-
ties for a healthy Jewish life in America, and can draw encour-
agement from the development, slow and gradual and halting
us it is. -The Jewish Post.

IS IT FATE?
m
By RABBI JOSEPH E. RACKOVSKY
Spiritual Leader of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation
(Bdltor'a Note: This la anothei In a
aarltta of article* by the iplrtl ..>
leaders of Oreatei Miami >
One of our great Mystics, who
wished to sum up the strange
events which take place on this
globe, stated: "Everything is the
child of Fortune, and depends on
Chance, even the 'Seifer Torah
Shebheicalthe Holy Scroll of
the Sanctuary."
And indeed, we do see strange
things happening in this world of
ours. We perceive wise men who
are unsuccessful, while we ob-
serve foolish men reaching
heights of success. We know of
strong and healthy people whose
lives were snuffed out in the first
flush of their youth, while we
see weak and sick individuals
living and carrying on to a ripe
old age. We notice books written
brilliantly by a master's pen. full
of thought, spreading ideals of
kindness, mercy and brotherly
love resting on their shelves in
the libraries ignored, neglected,
unread and accumulating dust.
Not a soul cares for them; no
hand touches them: no eve view!
them. Yet, next to these very
hooks lay other books, so-called
literaturebooks crowded with
folly, filled with nonsense and
even vulgarity. These are the
prominent subjects for the book
eviews and criticisms of the in-
tellectuals.
Scientists explore the reasons
for these occurrences. They
credit ability and locality for suc-
cess or failure. They blame en-
vironment and disease for life and
death. They attribute popularity
of books to the calibre of the
reader This may be true in most
cases. There are, however, some
cases where even the scientific
explanation fails to satisfy or
suffice.
Take, for instance, a case of
two
Uons for old and young, men and
women, whose objective is the
dissemination of Jewish culture
and philosophy. I have found
that we have men in almost all
of the professions and business
careers who definitely are relig-
ious and observant in the full
sense of these words. We have
lawyers, doctors, congressmen,
senators and artists who are
genuinely orthodox. Their ortho-
doxy does not retard them or pre-
vent their successful advance-
ment. In many cases it has
brought a rich measure of promi-
nence and respect.
I have thus come to the con-
clusion that it is not the lack of
fate or fortune which has pre-
cluded religious progress. It is
rather the lack of knowledge and
understanding of the funda-
mental laws of the Jewish reli-
gion which has weakened our
progress. Some times it has been
the lack of courage which has set
US back: other times it has been
the lack of will-power which has
been responsible for the failure
of growth in the Jewish life of
our community.
As an illustration of the above,
let us ponder upon one of the
Jewish laws. Or to be more pre-
I ia we will take one branch of
the involved law of Kashruth,
namely, that of "Kosher meat."
and si e whether it is because of
the misfortune of the law that it
by many of our fel-
low brethren, or bi cause of some
pi the other reasons which I
have enumerated above.
In order to properly undi rstand
our let us take somi of
irguments of the very people
who neglect Kashruth and ana-
lyze them. The arguments gen-
erally advanced an :
1. 'Why should I eat Kosher
it? It is all the same''"
2. "It is too much bother to
look foi Kashruth."
3. "Well, my home is Kosher,
but outside of my home, I buy
everything."
4. "I buy Kosher meat when I
can get it near by. if not. I buv
plain meat and make it Kosher."
The above statements are heard
often whenever a conversation
about Kashruth arises, and may
be Classified into three categories:
'a) the lack of knowledge, as in
Nos. 1 and 4; (b) the lack of will-
power, as in No. 2; (c) the lack of
understanding, as in No. 3.
To appreciate all the implica-
tions of the subject, it may be
desirable to set forth some of the
fundamentals of dietary laws af-
fecting meats. When does the
preparatory stage of the Kosher
process begin? Does it begin
with the salting or with the en-
dorsement? No! First. Kash-
ruth begins with the assurance
of the health of the animal. The

REMEMBER THIS .
King Carol of Rumania is sending SOS calls to le tt
leaders in the United States, asking for their political su
. That's returning the compliment with a vengeance Can
. Remember when Jewish leaders in the United States used
to send you SOS calls, and got no answer? The PoTi
Soviet diplomatic situation is becoming even more strain*!
than it was Jewish leaders should take care to avoid aU
entanglements With the second anniversary of Pearf
Harbor approaching Walter Winchell recalls that on Not
24. 1941, his column ran the tip-off on the approaching event
... It read: "For 20 years the Japs were promptest at payim
their dues in the Foreign Press Association This year the*
are two months overdue What's the lowdown0
some inside news on something happening before Jan 1?"
. And not only did all his millions of readers fail to recoo-
nize this tip, but Winchell himself had completely forgoS
it, he tells us, until he read about it in Alan Hynd's recentlv
published "Betrayal from the East."
IN RE PALESTINE .
A delegation of veterans of the Jewish Legion of the first
world war has presented to the British Ambassador at Wash.
ington a memorandum asking for the repeal of the While
Paper Any one who has doubts on the "absorptive ca-
pacity" of Palestine for further increases in population is
hereby referred to Major Francis P. Frazier of the American
army Speaking of the problem of feeding our forces in
the Middle East, the major says: "The Army Service Forces
in this theatre of war have partly solved one of the most
pressing problems faced by armies in the hungry Middle
East by raising large quantities of their own food ... On c
model farm in Palestine 100 acres of the richest land an
used to raise food crops and livestock" Boys from Ameri-
can farms are doing this farming in the Holy Land .. And
did you see Elsa Maxwell's proposal to the League of Nations
of the future? "Make Prussia a National Jewish Home-
land," cracks La Maxwell, "and send all the Prussians to
Palestine Then let the bumber-jumbo-Junkers argue Pan-
Prussia with the paranoiac proponents of Pan-Islam.''
READER'S GUIDE .
Pierre van Paassen's "The Forgotten Ally" will be pub-
lished in Hebrew and serialized in Yiddish ere long ...
Latest to join the ranks of memoirists is Henri Bernstein, the
French playwright Fannie Hurst's forthcoming novel,
"Hallelujah," is said to be her greatest ... It has already
been bought for the movies Rose Franken, the well-known
playwright, novelist and short story writer, and creator of
"Claudia," is the highest-paid magazine writer in the world
. She gets almost S2 per word ... So you see what a bar-
gain you get when you buy the newly published pocket
book edition of "Claudia."
SHOW FOLK AT WAR .
The title of "Sweetheart of the AEF" for the current war
has been bestowed by its holder of the last war, Elsie Janis.
upon our old friend, Dinah Shore ... It seems that Dinah
leads all other performers in the number of times she has
been featured in the War Department's "command perform-
ances," short-waved to our boys abroad with programs and
artists picked by the soldiers themselves Maxie Rosen-
bloom, former light-heavyweight boxing champ, has been in
the South Pacific entertaining the boys, and in the course of
his spiel he often challenged a member of the audience to
come up and slug it out with himjust for fun, of course ..
But Maxie has given up that particular line Because on
one occasion the fellow who took up his challenge was a
well-known heavyweight who had once fought for the
world's title.

FRIDAY. DECI
BETWEEN YOU
AND ME...
By BORIS SMOLAR
Copyright, 1943, Jewish
Telegraph Agency, Inc.
Political Talk: It can be told
now that the Jewish Agency has
known for several months that a
new "partition plan" for Pales-
tine is in preparation ... A hint
to this effect was given in Cairo
to Moshe Shertok, head of the
political department of the Jew-
ish Agency, by Richard G. Casey,
the British Minister of State for
the Middle East Shertok men-
tioned this fact to a few Zionists
leaders in New York during his
recent visit to the United States
. We hear that President Roose-
velt, when receiving a very im-
portant Zionist leader some time
ago, was interested in his opinion
as to whether Jews would be
satisfied with free immigration
to some other country instead of
Palestine And we also hear
that one of the Zionist groups in
the United States very recently
received a letter from a very im-
portant person in Washington
asking why the Jews are fighting
the White Paper The writer
of this letter, though a great
friend of the Jews, "naively thinks
that the White Paper embodies
nothing but immigration laws...
And, says the writer, each coun-
try is entitled to introduce its own
immigration laws, no matter how
strict they may be Which only
proves that even highly placed
people in Washington, about
whose friendship for the Jews
there can be no doubt, are lack-
ing sufficient information as to
why every liberal minded person
in America must help the Jewish
peoDle in their fight against the
White Paper American Jew-
ish organizations may be
"scooped" at the Allied peace
talks by the Jews of Russia on
the question of international out-
lawing of anti-semitism We
hear that Jews in Russia are pre-
paring material which may result
in the Soviet government asking
the Allies to outlaw anti-semit-
ism throughout the world in the
same manner as it has been
banned in the U. S. S. R.

Palestine Projects: Speaking of
outlawing anti-semitism, I would
advise Jewish readers to get the
"American Empire in Asia?" by
Albert Viton, just published by
the John Day Co. Mr. Viton
believes that anti-semitism has
deep roots in Germany, Poland
and Rumania, and these will be
affected only slightly by the out-
come of the war Nazi propa-
ganda, he states, has penetrated
too deeply into the minds of Ger-
man youth to be erased merely
by defeat on the battlefield .
As to the Poles, he points to the
fact that Polish refugees are con-
tinuing to carry on anti-Jewish
propaganda even in Britain .
He comes to the conclusion that
it will be necessary for Jews to
seek a land of refuge since the
anti-semitic ideologies in Europe
are not likely to disappear the
moment Germany is delated .
And this land of refuge, he says,
must be Palestine ... His solu-
tion of the Arab-Jewish problem
in Palestine will, however, hardly
be accepted by Jews ... He sug-
gests the establishment of cer-
tain zones in Palestine from
which Jews will be barred ^
Then he wants the cities of Jeru-
salem, Hebron, Nazareth and
Bethlehem placed under interna-
tional supervision The rest of
Palestine together with Trans-
jordan should be thrown open to
planned Jewish immigration
under the direction of a manda-
tory power And this manda-
tory power, he recommends,
should not be Britain, but any of
the small democratic countries
such as Switzerland, Belgium,
Holland or a Scandinavian land
. The reunion of Palestine with
Transjordan under the above
scheme would permit the ab-
sorption of several million Jew-
ish immigrants, the author as-
serts He visualizes the possi-
bility of many Arabs remaining
in the territory open for Jewish
settlement, but does not believe
their presence would create any
serious problem.

Post War Business: Watch
Hollywood Producers who
until recently were going strong
on anti-Nazi films, are now eas-
ing up on Germany Their
new productions will be made
with an eye to securing a market
in post-war Germany Thus
they will show that "not all is
bad in Germany" The "Sev-
enth Cross" which will soon go
into production in one of the
large studios, is considered a typ-
ical example of Hollywood's "ad-
vanced" treatment of Germany
and the Germans in picture
which are destined for public
showing a year hence The
film is adapted from the novel
by Ann Seghers dealing with the
adventures of seven pre-war fugi-
tives from a Nazi concentration
camp The changes made in
the story would have been un-
thinkable a year ago They
tend to show that despite the
brutality of the Nazis which one
of the fugitives encounters, and
despite the bitterness and hate
of his fellow-countrymen, this
Nazi victim becomes psychologi-
cally normal through contact with
other Germans who befriend him
and help him escape the country
. "This picture," the producer
says openly, "will show that there
is still some goodand some good
Germans in Germany." He does
not hesitate to add: "Pictures
with such themes are going to be
welcome and useful perhaps a
year from now" ... He admits,
however, that the same pictures
"might not have been acceptable
a few months ago, or even today."

Gerald Winrod speaks for a
week in St. Petersburg and on
the final night draws over 1.000.
(Look him up in "Under Cover.)
Rev. Everett Smith of the
First Christian Church in Mi-
ami pokes a finger of scorn at
the "poor" Jews, over Station
WQAM. "Not poor in money
they all have moneythey will
get yours, if you don't watch
them." And his congregation
rocks with laughter.
A real estate operator in Miami

Two high school girls speak
loudly in a bus of the devastating
effects of the recent bombing of
Berlin. "Too bad," says one.
"they couldn't spare a couple of
bombs for the Jews on Miami
Beach." The other agrees as
complacently as if they were dis-
cussing a date.
One of the most disturbing
phases in both the national and
local picture is the complacence
with which a large proportion
of the Jewish population re-
gards the rising wave of anti-
semitism in these United States.
The ordinary individual, im-
mersed in his busines and social
routine, rarely has occasion to
encounter anti-semitism in its
virulent form. To him, the hate-
mongers appear to be as distant
as the war. He is a ready prey
to the delusion that once the
Nazis are vanquished we will
automatically win the peace; that
the hatreds bred by 15 years of
constant hammering by the
world's most skillful propaganda
machine will by some miracle
suddenly dissolve.

results (without including fur-
ther increase in goal to meet lo-
cal 1944 increased needs), differ-
ence in per pledge giving of Jew-
ish and non-Jewish contributors
(as indicated in 1943 campaign
results) and the effect that this
would have upon raising the
standard of non-Jewish giving or
lowering the standard of Jewish
giving (the average per contrib-
utor Jewish gift to the Federation
was about $60 and the average
per contributor gift to the War
Chest was approximately $15).
In addition, the joint commit-
tee considered another important
factor, namely, the necessity to
interpret the Jewish Federation
and its agencies to the general
community, since heretofore the
Jewish Federation has not solicit-
ed contributions from the non-
Jewish community; so that cam-
paign joinder would not adversely
affect the giving of either group
to the united campaign, an inten-
sive educational program would
have to be conducted in the gen-
eral community to acquaint all
prospective contributors with
Federation and its agencies.
THEREFORE, it is the unani-
mous opinion of the committee
that there is not enough time be-
fore the 1944 War Chest cam-
paign to carry on such an educa-
tional program and that this fac-
tor alone is sufficient to reach
the conclusion that no merger
can be effected before the 1944
War Chest campaign.
The committee agrees that this
recommendation does not pre-
clude consideration'of a possible
merger for any future campaign.
It agrees further that much has
been accomplished by these dis-
cussions to prepare for further
discussions.
THEREFORE, it is the further
recommendation that the rela-
tionship between the War Chest
of Dade County and the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation be the
subject of continued discussions
and study by a similar joint com-
mittee appointed by the respec-
tive boards of the organizations
and that such joint committee be
prepared to render a further re-
port immediately after the com-
pletion of the 1944 Federation
campaign which follows the War
Chest campaign. This committee
realizes that there are many fac-
tors involved in any possible
merger which have not been dis-
cussed by this committee but
which must be considered by any
other committee which will con-
tinue the study of this matter.
This report has been submitted
by the joint committee and is sub-
ject in its entirety to the approval
of the boards of directors of the
War Chest of Dade County and
the Greater Miami Jewish Fed-
eration.
It is the further recommenda-
tion that if this report is approved
by the boards of the two organi-
zations that a joint statement be
issued to the press setting forth
the results of the deliberations of
this committee and the action of
their respective boards.
The War Chest is expected to
meet this coming week to of-
ficially approve the resolution.

Coming to the front as one of our community's able leaders
is Jacob Sher, who has assumed the chairmanship of the 1944
Greater Miami Jewish Federation campaign. With the assump-
tion of this task, "Jake," as he is dubbed by the hundreds who
know him with his perennial genial disposition, has undertaken
one of the largest responsibilities placed upon community lay
leadership.
Born in New York and attending schools in Louisville, Jake
came here in 1925 together with the vast influx of people from
all over the countryright in
the heart of "boom time." He
was engaged in the wholesale
drygoods business in Louisville
for 10 years immediately prior
to coming to Miami. Jake takes
much ribbing from his friends
as to his state of bachelorhood,
especially since he has found
his real loveFEDERATION.
Always interested in activi-
ties civic and communal, he
never participated actively and
until a few years ago did his
share in a financial measure,
as do too many others here
and over the country.
When the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation was organ-
ized some six years ago, Jake
appreciated the purpose of the
new movement and the vast
program that it was to under-
JACOB SHER take. The program that a suc-
cessful Federation could achieve and the unification of effort
that would result in the unanimity of its purpose stood out bold,
and he immediately interested himself in Federation, its set-up
and workings.
He served in various capacities and on numerous commit-
tees, giving of his time and ability, despite the pressing de-
mands made upon him as president of his vast enterprise, the
West Flagler Kennel Club. Last year he was chosen first vice-
president and at the same time took the reigns of the delinquent
collection committee whose proud record today reveals that
better than 91 per cent of the successful 1943 campaign had
been placed in the coffers of the organization and distributed
by them to the 46 agencies it supports.
The unanimous choice by Federation officers and executives
and his wholehearted acceptance as chairman of the coming
drive has likewise met the wholehearted approval of the com-
munity.
Mr. Sher as chairman of the campaign also serves as head
of the planning committee which directs the machinery and
the effort that this year will strive to raise an anticipated budget
coming close to $200,000.
He addressed the directors of the Federation at a meeting
last Tuesday evening in his first appearance since holding the
reins of the forthcoming effort. Jake cautioned his fellow
workers against a too optimistic attitude and he stated, "I look
forward to working with and receiving your full co-operation.
I realize my responsibility. I cannot think of anything but a
real success for our Federation in this our sixth drive, when I
know that the funds collected go for such worthy purposes as
the necessary sustenance of our co-religionists in war-torn Eu-
rope, the assistance needed by those in the Far East and the
rehabilitation and constructive work here in our own free coun-
try. To go a step further," he added, "more and more of our
efforts can be concretely seen and not alone heard by evidence
of the results of the funds spent in our own community. Local
institutions such as our two "Y's" do so much for our children,
and their expanded This is among programs include all of us
the many other activities we see daily in our very midst."
"The scope of the Federation is being expanded and with
this expansion program a successful campaign is the founda-
tion for the success of our constituents and our community.
There is much to be done. I have pledged my every effort in
this direction. With the expressions of desire to serve on the
part of our communal-minded citizenry in the community, I
know we will enjoy the coming months of work. I say enjoy
because it will bring real pleasure to all of us to know we have
accomplished this worthwhile undertaking."___________________

IS SPEAKER TO K. OF C.
Rabbi S. M. Machtei was the
guest speaker on Tuesday night
before the Miami Council, Knights
of Columbus, when he addressed
them on "The Responsibilities of
Minorities." The rabbi empha-
sized the dangers to minority
groups in any community result-
ing from the fascist-inspired ru-
mors and lies intended to dis-
rupt the harmony among its citi-
zens by setting group against
group and by arousing suspicions
and distrust of minority groups.
He cautioned his audience against
the danger to them from the
same sources which attempt to
turn them against their Jewish
neighbors.

WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Can YOU tell if the war hero
you're reading of is or isn't a
Jew? The ONLY way you can
be suremany non-Jews have
Jewish-sounding names and
vice versois to help the Bu-
reau of War Records in its gi-
gantic task of checking and as-
sembling a permanent record of
Jewish participation in this
war.
How can YOU help?
By giving us the name of ev-
ery Jewish man and woman
you know, now in the armed
forces oi the United tSates.
Tell us when they receive ci-
tations for bravery, or when
they are reported as casualties.
Only through your alertness,
interest and cooperation can an
official record of American
Jews in this war be achieved.

ers. Not that running aftairs
.-fully is unusual with Sho-
that Is not the reason for
ling, hut B'nai B'rith had an
underlying purpose in running
particular show and the ac-

This is not to be construed to ex

B'nai Brith spent a memorable
evening and did a good turn for

beneficiaries.
And leaving the every day

FRIDAY. DECI BETWEEN YOU AND ME... By BORIS SMOLAR Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc. Political Talk: It can be told now that the Jewish Agency has known for several months that a new "partition plan" for Palestine is in preparation ... A hint to this effect was given in Cairo to Moshe Shertok, head of the political department of the Jewish Agency, by Richard G. Casey, the British Minister of State for the Middle East Shertok mentioned this fact to a few Zionists leaders in New York during his recent visit to the United States We hear that President Roosevelt, when receiving a very important Zionist leader some time ago, was interested in his opinion as to whether Jews would be satisfied with free immigration to some other country instead of Palestine And we also hear that one of the Zionist groups in the United States very recently received a letter from a very important person in Washington asking why the Jews are fighting the White Paper The writer of this letter, though a great friend of the Jews, "naively thinks that the White Paper embodies nothing but immigration laws... And, says the writer, each country is entitled to introduce its own immigration laws, no matter how strict they may be Which only proves that even highly placed people in Washington, about whose friendship for the Jews there can be no doubt, are lacking sufficient information as to why every liberal minded person in America must help the Jewish peoDle in their fight against the White Paper American Jewish organizations may be "scooped" at the Allied peace talks by the Jews of Russia on the question of international outlawing of anti-semitism We hear that Jews in Russia are preparing material which may result in the Soviet government asking the Allies to outlaw anti-semitism throughout the world in the same manner as it has been banned in the U. S. S. R. • • • Palestine Projects: Speaking of outlawing anti-semitism, I would advise Jewish readers to get the "American Empire in Asia?" by Albert Viton, just published by the John Day Co. Mr. Viton believes that anti-semitism has deep roots in Germany, Poland and Rumania, and these will be affected only slightly by the outcome of the war Nazi propaganda, he states, has penetrated too deeply into the minds of German youth to be erased merely by defeat on the battlefield As to the Poles, he points to the fact that Polish refugees are continuing to carry on anti-Jewish propaganda even in Britain He comes to the conclusion that it will be necessary for Jews to seek a land of refuge since the anti-semitic ideologies in Europe are not likely to disappear the moment Germany is delated And this land of refuge, he says, must be Palestine ... His solution of the Arab-Jewish problem in Palestine will, however, hardly be accepted by Jews ... He suggests the establishment of certain zones in Palestine from which Jews will be barred %  ^ Then he wants the cities of Jerusalem, Hebron, Nazareth and Bethlehem placed under international supervision The rest of Palestine together with Transjordan should be thrown open to planned Jewish immigration under the direction of a mandatory power And this mandatory power, he recommends, should not be Britain, but any of the small democratic countries such as Switzerland, Belgium, Holland or a Scandinavian land The reunion of Palestine with Transjordan under the above scheme would permit the absorption of several million Jewish immigrants, the author asserts He visualizes the possibility of many Arabs remaining in the territory open for Jewish settlement, but does not believe their presence would create any serious problem. • • • Post War Business: Watch Hollywood Producers who until recently were going strong on anti-Nazi films, are now easing up on Germany Their new productions will be made with an eye to securing a market in post-war Germany Thus they will show that "not all is bad in Germany" The "Seventh Cross" which will soon go into production in one of the large studios, is considered a typical example of Hollywood's "advanced" treatment of Germany and the Germans in picture which are destined for public showing a year hence The film is adapted from the novel by Ann Seghers dealing with the adventures of seven pre-war fugitives from a Nazi concentration camp The changes made in the story would have been unthinkable a year ago They tend to show that despite the brutality of the Nazis which one of the fugitives encounters, and despite the bitterness and hate of his fellow-countrymen, this Nazi victim becomes psychologically normal through contact with other Germans who befriend him and help him escape the country "This picture," the producer says openly, "will show that there is still some good—and some good Germans in Germany." He does not hesitate to add: "Pictures with such themes are going to be welcome and useful perhaps a year from now" ... He admits, however, that the same pictures "might not have been acceptable a few months ago, or even today." Give War Bonds as Chanuka Gifts.

W. 22nd St. PHONE 2-9420 RES. PHONE 7-4930 Sit with us for a day in the A. D. L. office and note the incidents which stream over our desk—dire portents of an unhealthy trend. Gerald Winrod speaks for a week in St. Petersburg and on the final night draws over 1.000. (Look him up in "Under Cover.) Rev. Everett Smith of the First Christian Church in Miami pokes a finger of scorn at the "poor" Jews, over Station WQAM. "Not poor in money— they all have money—they will get yours, if you don't watch them." And his congregation rocks with laughter. A real estate operator in Miami refuses to do business with a client— "I hate the Jews." Two high school girls speak loudly in a bus of the devastating effects of the recent bombing of Berlin. "Too bad," says one. "they couldn't spare a couple of bombs for the Jews on Miami Beach." The other agrees as complacently as if they were discussing a date. One of the most disturbing phases in both the national and local picture is the complacence with which a large proportion of the Jewish population regards the rising wave of antisemitism in these United States. The ordinary individual, immersed in his busines and social routine, rarely has occasion to encounter anti-semitism in its virulent form. To him, the hatemongers appear to be as distant as the war. He is a ready prey to the delusion that once the Nazis are vanquished we will automatically win the peace; that the hatreds bred by 15 years of constant hammering by the world's most skillful propaganda machine will by some miracle suddenly dissolve. To him and his too many compatriots we say—Face the Facts! Chanuka Gifts—War Bonds. (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) results (without including further increase in goal to meet local 1944 increased needs), difference in per pledge giving of Jewish and non-Jewish contributors (as indicated in 1943 campaign results) and the effect that this would have upon raising the standard of non-Jewish giving or lowering the standard of Jewish giving (the average per contributor Jewish gift to the Federation was about $60 and the average per contributor gift to the War Chest was approximately $15). In addition, the joint committee considered another important factor, namely, the necessity to interpret the Jewish Federation and its agencies to the general community, since heretofore the Jewish Federation has not solicited contributions from the nonJewish community; so that campaign joinder would not adversely affect the giving of either group to the united campaign, an intensive educational program would have to be conducted in the general community to acquaint all prospective contributors with Federation and its agencies. THEREFORE, it is the unanimous opinion of the committee that there is not enough time before the 1944 War Chest campaign to carry on such an educational program and that this factor alone is sufficient to reach the conclusion that no merger can be effected before the 1944 War Chest campaign. The committee agrees that this recommendation does not preclude consideration'of a possible merger for any future campaign. It agrees further that much has been accomplished by these discussions to prepare for further discussions. THEREFORE, it is the further recommendation that the relationship between the War Chest of Dade County and the Greater Miami Jewish Federation be the subject of continued discussions and study by a similar joint committee appointed by the respective boards of the organizations and that such joint committee be prepared to render a further report immediately after the completion of the 1944 Federation campaign which follows the War Chest campaign. This committee realizes that there are many factors involved in any possible merger which have not been discussed by this committee but which must be considered by any other committee which will continue the study of this matter. This report has been submitted by the joint committee and is subject in its entirety to the approval of the boards of directors of the War Chest of Dade County and the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. It is the further recommendation that if this report is approved by the boards of the two organizations that a joint statement be issued to the press setting forth the results of the deliberations of this committee and the action of their respective boards. The War Chest is expected to meet this coming week to officially approve the resolution. A. LESTER STEPNER, M. D. announces the reopening of his offices at 605 Lincoln Road Suite 508 PHONE 5-1140 Coming to the front as one of our community's able leaders is Jacob Sher, who has assumed the chairmanship of the 1944 Greater Miami Jewish Federation campaign. With the assumption of this task, "Jake," as he is dubbed by the hundreds who know him with his perennial genial disposition, has undertaken one of the largest responsibilities placed upon community lay leadership. Born in New York and attending schools in Louisville, Jake came here in 1925 t ogether with the vast influx of people from all over the country—right in the heart of "boom time." He was engaged in the wholesale drygoods business in Louisville for 10 years immediately prior to coming to Miami. Jake takes much ribbing from his friends as to his state of bachelorhood, especially since he has found his real love—FEDERATION. Always interested in activities civic and communal, he never participated actively and until a few years ago did his share in a financial measure, as do too many others here and over the country. When the Greater Miami Jewish Federation was organized some six years ago, Jake appreciated the purpose of the new movement and the vast program that it was to underJACOB SHER take. The program that a successful Federation could achieve and the unification of effort that would result in the unanimity of its purpose stood out bold, and he immediately interested himself in Federation, its set-up and workings. He served in various capacities and on numerous committees, giving of his time and ability, despite the pressing demands made upon him as president of his vast enterprise, the West Flagler Kennel Club. Last year he was chosen first vicepresident and at the same time took the reigns of the delinquent collection committee whose proud record today reveals that better than 91 per cent of the successful 1943 campaign had been placed in the coffers of the organization and distributed by them to the 46 agencies it supports. The unanimous choice by Federation officers and executives and his wholehearted acceptance as chairman of the coming drive has likewise met the wholehearted approval of the community. Mr. Sher as chairman of the campaign also serves as head of the planning committee which directs the machinery and the effort that this year will strive to raise an anticipated budget coming close to $200,000. He addressed the directors of the Federation at a meeting last Tuesday evening in his first appearance since holding the reins of the forthcoming effort. Jake cautioned his fellow workers against a too optimistic attitude and he stated, "I look forward to working with and receiving your full co-operation. I realize my responsibility. I cannot think of anything but a real success for our Federation in this our sixth drive, when I know that the funds collected go for such worthy purposes as the necessary sustenance of our co-religionists in war-torn Europe, the assistance needed by those in the Far East and the rehabilitation and constructive work here in our own free country. To go a step further," he added, "more and more of our efforts can be concretely seen and not alone heard by evidence of the results of the funds spent in our own community. Local institutions such as our two "Y's" do so much for our children, and their expanded This is among programs include all of us the many other activities we see daily in our very midst." "The scope of the Federation is being expanded and with this expansion program a successful campaign is the foundation for the success of our constituents and our community. There is much to be done. I have pledged my every effort in this direction. With the expressions of desire to serve on the part of our communal-minded citizenry in the community, I know we will enjoy the coming months of work. I say enjoy because it will bring real pleasure to all of us to know we have accomplished this worthwhile undertaking." rW u'v n DRINK PLENTY OF C/Tripiire ^ Water DELIVERED TO TOUR HOME iGALLON BOTTLE 6 0c CASE OF SIX TABLE BOTTLES 7 5t i Plus Bott'e Deposil PHONE 2-4128 MIAMI Y.

They are advancing not only in theory but also in practice. We have organizations of business men, Shomrey-ShabThe effort to stimulate the sales of Jewish books comes strangely enough at a time when publishers lists are full of books that deal to some extent if not with Jewish themes, at least with the Jews. The book "Under Cover," for example, an expose of the fascist anti-Semitic currents in America, is today ibas. And when I say "Shonm vone of the best sellers. Pierre Van Paassen's "Our Forqotten Shabbas." I do not merely mean Ally" dealing also with the Jews and Palestine is another book peopk that seems destined for the best-seller class. Sholem Asch's works might perhaps also be cited in this connection. The odd part of this phenomenon is the fact that most of these books dealing with the Jew are purchased not by Jews, but by non-Jews. This, of course, is a very happy fact. It is good to know that our Christian neighbors are interested enough to seek to learn the truth about us. Gratifying as this phenomenon is, there still remains good reason for a Jewish Book Month. The fact is, that Jews themselves have not been buyers of Jewish books that one has a right to expect. One could easily list any number of good works dealing with Jewish themes, the number of whose Jewish readers is very small. We are traditionally "the people of the Book." If we are to live up to this name, we must improve the patronage of Jewish I charitable organizations and eduliterature—and we must in particular patronize more such works i a, onaI establishments all over which deal with the deeper, if less sensational currents, of Jew' ish thought. To be a Jew means to possess a Jewish philosophy, and to share a Jewish idealism and for this, we need communion with Jewish literature. business closed on the Sabbath but do everything else that is prohibited by Jewish law. No! These individuals are not Shomrey-Shabbas. I refer to those business men who spend their Sabbath in the synagogue or in the center in the study of Jewish law. Jewish history; in prayer, in Oneg Shabbas gatherings, and in service of the congregation or the community. We have people who spend their time and money in spreading our religious doctrines, promoting Jewish education and Jewish history. We have benevolent associations, MORE THAN A PREDICTION Unrecognized by most Jews, there is gradually being built up in American Jewish community life a set of standards and forces not too dissimilar from the authority that was the kehillah of Europe. American Jewry is maturing and with that coming of age is more or less voluntarily assuming the same obligations and the same burdens and the same responsibilities as those our European progenitors bore a hundred years ago. For instance there has developed a set of standards of giving to local Jewish welfare funds which cannot be denied and which forces even the miserly to do their share. In respect to Jewish education we are coming to the point where the parent who overlooks the Jewish education of his child will be subject to censure. A case in point is the Hillel Foundations which hardly any student can refuse to join without publicly acknowledging assimilationist desires. And as far as our communal institutions and agencies are concerned we long ago accepted the responsibility for their support. Without losing force, force is being used. The authority of the Catholic Hierarchy does not exist in Jewish life, yet the Jew is performing his Jewish tasks just as if that authority were invested in Jewish leadership. Of course there are some who escape, but they know full well they are shirking their responsibilities, and this tends to make the defection temporary, and more often than not the unorganized and unaffiliated Jew comes back into the fold. This is only a trend towards an ideal situation, which will be the American Jewry of twenty-five to fifty years from now. But enough evidence of the tendency is obvious to make this more than a prediction. The student of American Jewish life of the past ten years can see the crystallization of many of the necessities for a healthy Jewish life in America, and can draw encouragement from the development, slow and gradual and halting us it is. -The Jewish Post. • fc IS IT FATE? M By RABBI JOSEPH E. RACKOVSKY Spiritual Leader of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation (Bdltor'a Note: This la anothei In a aarltta of article* by the iplrtl ..> leaders of Oreatei Miami > One of our great Mystics, who wished to sum up the strange events which take place on this globe, stated: "Everything is the child of Fortune, and depends on Chance, even the 'Seifer Torah Shebheical—the Holy Scroll of the Sanctuary." And indeed, we do see strange things happening in this world of ours. We perceive wise men who are unsuccessful, while we observe foolish men reaching heights of success. We know of strong and healthy people whose lives were snuffed out in the first flush of their youth, while we see weak and sick individuals living and carrying on to a ripe old age. We notice books written brilliantly by a master's pen. full of thought, spreading ideals of kindness, mercy and brotherly love resting on their shelves in the libraries ignored, neglected, unread and accumulating dust. Not a soul cares for them; no hand touches them: no eve view! them. Yet, next to these very hooks lay other books, so-called literature—books crowded with folly, filled with nonsense and even vulgarity. These are the prominent subjects for the book eviews and criticisms of the intellectuals. Scientists explore the reasons for these occurrences. They credit ability and locality for success or failure. They blame environment and disease for life and death. They attribute popularity of books to the calibre of the reader This may be true in most cases. There are, however, some cases where even the scientific explanation fails to satisfy or suffice. Take, for instance, a case of two Uons for old and young, men and women, whose objective is the dissemination of Jewish culture and philosophy. I have found that we have men in almost all of the professions and business careers who definitely are religious and observant in the full sense of these words. We have lawyers, doctors, congressmen, senators and artists who are genuinely orthodox. Their orthodoxy does not retard them or prevent their successful advancement. In many cases it has brought a rich measure of prominence and respect. I have thus come to the conclusion that it is not the lack of fate or fortune which has precluded religious progress. It is rather the lack of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental laws of the Jewish religion which has weakened our progress. Some times it has been the lack of courage which has set US back: other times it has been the lack of will-power which has been responsible for the failure of growth in the Jewish life of our community. As an illustration of the above, let us ponder upon one of the Jewish laws. Or to be more preI ia we will take one branch of the involved law of Kashruth, namely, that of "Kosher meat." and si e whether it is because of the misfortune of the law that it by many of our fellow brethren, or bi cause of some pi the other reasons which I have enumerated above. In order to properly undi rstand our let us take somi of irguments of the very people who neglect Kashruth and analyze them. The arguments generally advanced an : 1. 'Why should I eat Kosher it? It is all the same''" 2. "It is too much bother to look foi Kashruth." 3. "Well, my home is Kosher, but outside of my home, I buy everything." 4. "I buy Kosher meat when I can get it near by. if not. I buv plain meat and make it Kosher." The above statements are heard often whenever a conversation about Kashruth arises, and may be Classified into three categories: 'a) the lack of knowledge, as in Nos. 1 and 4; (b) the lack of willpower, as in No. 2; (c) the lack of understanding, as in No. 3. To appreciate all the implications of the subject, it may be desirable to set forth some of the fundamentals of dietary laws affecting meats. When does the preparatory stage of the Kosher process begin? Does it begin with the salting or with the endorsement? No! First. Kashruth begins with the assurance of the health of the animal. The Schochet must examine the lung and see that there are no adhesions, boils, wounds, discoloracopies of the same book by the same author, resting on one t,on or other irregularities which shelf in the same library.

Machtei was the guest speaker on Tuesday night before the Miami Council, Knights of Columbus, when he addressed them on "The Responsibilities of Minorities." The rabbi emphasized the dangers to minority groups in any community resulting from the fascist-inspired rumors and lies intended to disrupt the harmony among its citizens by setting group against group and by arousing suspicions and distrust of minority groups. He cautioned his audience against the danger to them from the same sources which attempt to turn them against their Jewish neighbors. l wi A E E T N R (This column li oonducted by the Qreatei Miami Jewlab Federation In %  ..Hen with 'I'll.Jew lab Floriduui -I-;. community service To Inform the communlt) "f youi organisation's activities an.i to avoid conflict!

It should be ol interest to know that Judge Met onk oi the Supreme Court of New York State rendered a decision in a Kashruth cast in 'which he praised the Jewish law concerning slaughtering as the most humane method.

This is done by soaking and salting as prescribed in the Schulchan Oruch. This procedure only concludes the preparation o| Kosher meat before we may eal it. but it definitely can not make non Kosher meat Kosher. Prom the above, one may see that Kosher and non-Kosh.r meats are essentially not of the same quality, they are not hanui the same way. and non• i meat can not be transformed into Kosher meat. And certainly, therefore, no one can maintain that he observes Kashruth by submitting to its discipline m the home and ignoring Its practice away from his home Of course, it requires effort. But in all honesty, we must certainly ni/e that our ancestors mad. infinitely greater sacrifices because of Shochito.

Palmer Funeral Chapel 2008 WEST FLAGLER STREET PHONE 9-2664 IS ENDED TUESDAY Concluding the first November racing in Florida history on Tuesday night, the West Flagler Kennel Club is rolling ahead each weekday night to the greatest greyhound racing meet ever in this states' history. With the conclusion of the November racing, approximately two weeks, the popular downtown West Flagler center erased every attendance and mutuel record of the state's greyhound racing records for any time of the year. This indicates that with the coming of mid-December, even more sensational records will be posted, this including the racing marks which already are attracting widesuread attention. Starting last Tuesday night. West Flagler inaugurated a new schedule of 10 races nightly rather than the former 12 events. Starting at 8 p. m., this gives patrons additional between-race time and more convenience in wagering with the large crowds. The final 10th race each night, a breath-taking hurdle event, goes to the post at 11:34 p. m. The daily double has been changed to the second and third races instead of the former first and third and the nightly headline pack goes in the eighth race rather than the ffirmer 10 h. Throughout the last two and a half weeks, the mutuel returns show a domination of favorites although the quiniela wagering on each race has given the longshot players many a thrill into the hundreds of dollars.
