Court Finds
Men Guilty
Having Arms
Jerusalem (JTA).Five colo-
nists from the Hulda settlement
were found guilty this week of
illegal possession of arms. The
president of the military court
which has been hearing the case,
Major Russel Lawrence, when
delivering the verdict, appealed
to Jacob Haas and Jacob Galata,
the two Hulda settlers who had
pleaded guilty at the trial's open-
ing, to reveal the source of the
arms, indicating that the sen-
tences of all seven would be
milder if they do so.
Haas and Galata were given a
week to decide whether or not
they will "assist the authorities
to discover the source of the cap-
tured arms." The court will issue
its sentence at the end of the
week. "My appeal to those who
pleaded guilty should not be mis-
understood as a promise to ac-
quit them," the president of the
court said. "Nor is it a threat. It
simply means that their sentences
may be considered in another
light, should they decide to reveal
from where the illegal arms
came."_______^^^^_
Alliance to Raise
Funds for Rescue
New York (JTA).The Jewish

meeting of the organization in
Carnegie Hall, attended by 4,000
persons. During this same period
the Alliance will conduct a drive
to sell $1,000,000 worth of war
bonds.

Washington (JTA).Disclosure
of a secret agreement to give
broad rescue powers to the Inter-

Jews.

the Foreign Affairs Committee in
a position where it is faced with
the dilemma of either voting
down the Balwin-Rogers resolu-
tion and repudiating immediate
aid to European Jews, or approv-
ing the resolution and implying
that the aid given so far has been
too little.

The white-maned senator's pro-
; gram for post war prosperity in

Florida tourist money now be-

poultry, dairy products and veg-

resultant prosperity for all Flor-

of every dollar spent in Florida
finds its way in-.o the state treas-
ury and that $50,000,000 spent in
Florida for tourist necessities of

Preparations are under way for a most intensiv
CHANUKA
The observance of Chanuka, traditional holiday commem-
orating Jewish courage and renewal, will have added signifi-
cance this year with the kindling of the lights of hope for the
liberation and reconstruction of millions of Jews.
Jews celebrate Chanuka when the Christian world celebrates
its great festival of good cheer.
There are many points of similarity in the observance.
Both mark it, for example, by the exchange of gifts. Yet the
two holidays commemorate very different matters. Ideological-
ly, they thus stand apart in their roots, yet there is a relationship
here also.
Both Judaism and Christianity, for all their differences-
have this thing in common, that they bespeak the issue about
which the world is fighting today. Both Judaism and Chris-
tianity sound the democratic message. Both declare that the
quintesence of religion is the brotherhood of man. The doctrine
"love thy neighbor as thyself" is found both in the Old Testa-
ment and the New.
The kindling of the lights, marking the feast of Chanuka
in observance of the Maccabean victory over the Assyrians,
will this year also symbolize the kindling of the lights of free-
dom in lands which have hitherto been in the grip of darkness
and oppression.
As in the case of other Jewish holidays. Chanuka has spe-
cial meaning in terms of the present Jewish situation. Invoking
the heroic spirit of the Maccabees of old. many Jews who were
faced with annihilation displayed gallantry and endurance
which have added new lustre to the Maccabean tradition.
We are engaged in a new Maccabean fight today. The
soldiers in the uniforms of the United Nations are fighting the
same fight as that of Judas Maccabeus when he ousted the
heathen invaders from Palestine.
The light of the Chanuka candles for all the tragedy that is
about us, reassure us that the end of this great battle of today
will not differ from that in which the Maccabeans of old, were
engaged. #

JEWISH NEWS .
The new executive ditector of the American Jewish Co
ierence is Joseph Pearlstain, who is a son-in-law af Morris D
Waldman, executive vice president of the American Jewish
Committee Curious, perhapsbut it does prove an ah-
sence of prejudice Orchids to Carl Sherman and M Maid
win Fertig of the American Jewish Congress, who displayed"
remarkable tact and discretion in handling a most delicate
situation that had arisen in the Jewish dress industry
What's more, they handled it with eminent success.
GESTAPO GESTURES .
Latest "act of mercy" of the Nazis is reported from Hol-
land, where 25,000 Jews were sterilized in a single week by
German military doctors in compliance with a new Gestapo
edict The victims were all husbands or wives of non-
Jews, and since their sterilization have been relieved of the
obligation to wear the Mogen David Did you know, inci-
dentally, that Dutch Jews possessing Palestine immigration
certiiicates aren't sent to Poland, but to special internment
camps in Germany? These presumably must be better
than the Polish camps, since nothing can be worse Walter
Winchell is very proud of the Gestapo's decree that any Ger-
man caught reading his column is to be shot summarily
In case you've been wondering how any German ever has
a chance to commit this heinous crime, here's the news that
the anti-Nazi underground smuggles the columns into Ger-
many, and that they're passed from hand to hand under the
Gestapo's very nose We hope a few columns eventually
find their way into the hands of Goebbels and Goering.
THIS AND THAT .
The Jewish cemetery at Melrose, Mass., was recently
damaged by vandals (during that wave of anti-Semitic hood-
lumism in Boston and environs) ... But a fund to repair the
damage has been raised by the Christians of Melrose, both
Protestants and Catholics Featured at the New York Pub-
lic Library this week is an unusual exhibit showing how the
Jewish Social Service Organization does its work ... An
important part of the exhibit, which marks the 70th anniver-
sary of the organization, is a number of sprightly cartoons...
"The Forgotten Ally," Pierre van Paassen's new book, is now
selling faster than the publishers can print it Latest reports
are that it is selling at the rate of 1.500 copies a day, of 9,000
a week.
ABOUT PEOPLE .
General Moshe Cohen, now resting up in Canada after
a spell of being a prisoner of the Japs, is aching to go back
to China and take part in the smashing of the Empire of the
Rising Sun Cohen, who is 51 now, is still in perfect trim,
and fast on the draw as ever Leonard Bernstein, the young
assistant conductor of the New York Philharmonic Symphony
Orchestra, who gained fame overnight last month when he
pinch hit for Bruno Walter at a few hours' notice, had a
chance to show Carnegie Hall audiences his stuff again last
week, when he conducted Ernest Bloch's "Three Jewish
Poems" ... But he didn't get a chance to 'perform over the
air The Bloch number was omitted from the orchestra's
Sunday broadcast, the entire program being given over to
Ar,ur Rodzinski's presentation of Mahler's Second Symphony
Why? No jealosuy. we hope Moss Hart, whose new
show "Winged Victory." is expected to net millions of dol-
lars for army relief, claims that what made him a successful
playwright was a thorough grounding in dramatic flops
He got this vital education during the year that he served as
an office boy in a theatrical agency, when he was given
passes to every bad play that hit Broadway (tickets for good
plays were, of course, kept by the boss for his own use).
A forthcoming serial to be heard over the BBC's wavelength
throughout England is the life story of Mrs. George Lett, the
former Florence Rose of Tennessee Ii you're wondering
what this is all about, let us remind you that Florence is better
remembered by her stage name Dinah Shore ... As for
Private Letz, her husband -you know him better as George
Montgomery, the former cowboy star Ex-boxer Barney
Ross, still not fully recovered from the injuries and maladies
he contracted in the Southwest Pacific war theatre, is taking
time out to write his autobiography While ex-boxer "Bat-
tling Levinsky is now engaged in sellinq neckties, according
to reports from Minnesota.
i. ,kAn unior'una,e psychological shock awaits many families
in the United States who. after the war, must qive sympathy and
consideration to their invalids. Medical men are not miracle
workers. We can only do our utmost to save lives and prevent
permanent disability to those under our care ... The folks back

Office Volunteers
One of the first officers named
for the 1944 Federation Cam-
paign is Mrs. Meyer Schwartz,
who will serve as co-chairman of
office volunteers. Mrs. Schwartz
has already received office as-
sistance from several experienced
campaign workers and has been
pledged support by several mem-
bership organizations. Volunteers
have begun their campaign work
in the offices of the Federation
under Mrs. Schwartz's direction.
Those who are interested in as-
sisting in this unportunt work,
may arrange to do so by con-
tacting Mrs. Schwartz at 3-5411.
Collections Record Being Set
Federation is in the midst of a
drive to clean up as many of its
old subscriptions as possible by
the end of 1943. Most of these
subscriptions are due for the cur-
rent year, but some are due for a
longer period of time. During
this drive, emphasis is being
placed on the fact that contribu-
tions paid before December 31,
1943, are deductible in comput-
ing 1943 income taxes. Collec-
tions are at an all time record
high, since they have passed the
92% mark for 1943 pledges. Fed-
(ration's collection committee is
under the chairmanship of Jacob
Sher, who is impressing upon
subscribers that he is anxious to
complete his duties in this line of
work so that he may concentrati-
on the job of 1944 campaign
chairman.
Plans for the formation of a
Yeshiva and Paroachial school
were discussed at a meeting of
interested individuals last Satur-
day night at Beth Jacob Congre-
gation. Rabbi Moses Mescheloff
presided at the meeting at which
preliminary details were formu-
lated and committees were se-
lected.
Additional gatherings in the
interest of the proposed school
which is to be housed on Miami
Beach and which, according to
present plans, is scheduled for
opening Feb. 1, will be an-
nounced. A temporary office of
the proposed institution is being
maintained at the Beth Jacob
Congregation.

A reader writes:
"Certain greedy and selfish
landlords are bringing disre-
pute not only to themselves but
also to Jewry as a whole. By
their uncouth behavior to their
tenants and to OPA officials,
they invite anti Semitism.
What can be done about mak-
ing them realize the harm they
are doing?
This problem, brought out
succinctly by our correspondent,
has been besetting us for many
months. The situation is ex-
tremely complicated and is as
variable and unpredictable as hu-
man behavior itself.
Unfortunately,, we do not pos-
sess police powers. At times, we
wish we did. OPA does, how-
ever, and as this is being written
we understand that drastic action
is being planned against two or
three of the worst offenders.
More power to OPA! We hope
that the action taken will be so
drastic as to give other would-be
offenders pause for thought.
To the credit of the great
majority of apartment house
owners, let it be said that they
have played fair. The officials
of the Miami Beach Apartment
House Association are well
aware of the problem and its
implications, and are cooperat-
ing closely with this office in
developing a program, not only
of self-discipline and education,
but also of better public rela-
tions.

THE PALESTINE FRONT .
Big doings regarding Palestine are now brewing in Lon-
don And they are reflected in Washington It would
be premature to mention any names here, but it can be dis-
closed that Dr. Weizmann is more optimistic than ever after
seeing a few of the most important men in England ... He
has summoned three members of the Zionist executive from
Jerusalem and three Zionist leaders from the United States
to come to London Though the campaign against the
White Paper will not cease, Zionist leaders are now less
worried about this document ... In fact, they consider it
practically abandoned after the statement made by Colonial
Minister Stanley in Parliament that approximately 30,000
Jews will be permitted to enter Palestine even after the expira-
tion of the term of the White Paper next March They
figure that by that time the last of these 30,000 Jews reach
Palestine, the status of the country may have undergone a
substantial change which. will automatically nullify the
White Paper Zionist leaders in London are now concen-
trating their efforts on securing such a change And the
change will not mean partition to which the Zionist leaders
are now saying "no" guite definitely ... By the way, the
Colonial Office in London still keeps on insisting that it is
not aware of any new partition plan regarding Palestine ..
But why doesn't the Colonial Office check with former Colo-
nial Secretary Lord Moyne and with Robert Casey, British
Minister for the Middle East? These two gentlemen are
in a position to give the Colonial Office all the details of the
project Did you hear of the report Senator Mead brought
back to Washington from his trip to the Middle East- ... All
Arab leaders with whom the Senator spoke presented to him
various demands, but none of them mentioned the Arab-
Jewish question in Palestine "What about the Jewish
claims for Palestine?" the Senator could not resist asking
some of the Arab notables "Well," was the reply, "we'll
find a way to get along with the Jews" .
THE RUSSIAN FRONT .
Jan Masaryk, Czechoslovak Foreign Minister who is now
in the United States, has cabled to President Benes in Mos-
cow reminding him to take up with Stalin the Palestine ques-
tion ... Dr. Benes sometime ago promised Zionist leaders
to do so, and even accepted from them a memorandum to this
effect ... He is now in Moscow discussing with Stalin the
post-war relations between the Soviet Union and a liberated
Czechoslovakia ... A prominent American who just returned
from various parts of Europe and Africa believes that if the
Jews ever get what they want in Palestine, it will be due to
the United States and Russia ... He discounts Britain .
He came to these conclusions on the basis of talks which he
had with Soviet, American and British diplomats in the coun-
tries which he visited ... I believe that it will be revealing
no secret when I say that Dr. Lebedenko, the head of the
Soviet Red Cross who is now in this country, played an im-
portant role in the negotiations between the JDC and the
Soviet government which culminated in the JDC securing
permission to send food and clothing for distribution in
Jewish-populated sections of the U. S. S. R. It is James
N. Rosenberg who deserves credit for initiating these nego-
tiations, in which Paul Baerwald and Joseph C. Hyman later
participated ... Dr. Lebedenko, incidentally, is one of the
greatest brain surgeons in the world.
THE JEWISH FRONT .
The Nazi persecution of Jews made many English-speak-
ing Jews in the democratic countries Jew-conscious ... A
large number of them, particularly the young generation of
Jews in America, know very little, however, ol Jewish history
. "The Epic of a People" by A. Addleson, just published
by the Bloch Publishing Co., aims at filling this gap ... In
one volume all of the Jewish history from Abraham, who
was the father of the Jews, up to the outbreak of the present
war is presented in a manner which makes easy and interest-
ing reading Though not as exhaustive as other books on
the same subject, the "Epic of a People" has an advantage
over the others in that its last chapters deal with the eclipse
of German Jewry, with the Jewish refugee situation, with the
Evian Conference and with many other developments of con-
temporary Jewish history ... It even carries a map showing
the boundaries of the proposed Jewish state in Palestine sug-
gested in 1938 under the so-called "partition plan" of the
British Royal Commission The volume, which is actually
a handbook on Jewish history, also contains a chapter on
the Jews of America which briefly reviews Jewish develop-
ment in the United States from the days of the early settle-
ment till about 1935 .. One of the best chapters is the one
on Palestine which reviews modern Zionism from the time
of Dr. Herzl until the British White Paper of 1939 against
which the Jews in all democratic countries are now fighting
The book deserves to be in the home of every American
Jew who wants his children to retain Jewish self-respect.
THE HOME FRONT ...
Will the United Jewish Appeal be renewed for the coming
year? Much bargaining is now going on between the
JDC and the Zionists around the negotiations for a renewal
of the UJA agreement The JDC claims that the Zionist
partner is collecting funds in America outside of the United
Jewish Appeal ... It points especially to the collections of
the Jewish National Fund ... By the time this is published
the bargaining may be over and the United Jewish Appeal
renewed Don't be too optimistic about Congress passing
the pending resolution which recommends the formation of
a special government committee to deal with the immediate
rescue of Jews in Europe. ... You can expect, however, that

ed a letter to Mr. and Mrs. D.
Singer, 1786 S. W. 10th St., from
their son, Pete, with the armed
forces somewhere in Italy.
Dear Dad and Mother:
Have been receiving your mail
regularly, but have had little time
to answer. Have not received
any packages for quite a while,
but I believe from your letters
that there are two boxes of 50
each and one of 100 cigars on the
way. I will let you know when
they arrive. Today I found a
small synagogue hidden on the
third floor of a bomb-shattered
building. It was intact. The al-
tar was not damaged. I tried to
talk with the rabbi, but again
ran into the same trouble I had
in Africa. They only speak the
native language and Hebrew,
which I do not understand. I left
him some money for the syna-
gogue and will try to go there
when they have services. I fig-
ure that "Yahr Ziet" will be on
the 4th Candle of Chanuka and
have made arrangements to at-
tend the proper ceremony at that
time.
Bet regards,
PETE.

drop her a line.
Also I wish you. would let me
know when Chanu'a falls; maybe
I'll go into Tulsa if it's beginning
is on a weekend.
As you notice, it is two years
today since the attack on Pearl
Harbor. I can remember that
Sunday as though it were yester-
day. That's what started it all.
Shortly after the U. S. declared
wor on Japan, Italy and Germany.
I believe that two years from
today will see it all over with,
and we may all again be home.
We surely have a lot to talk over
and a lot to say to each other. I
think Japan's politicians will live
to regret what happened exactly
two years ago. It's going to be a
lung war and a hard one, but we
WILL beat them.
It's up to the Americans at
home to do ALL they can. To
keep their heads high and their
nerves strong, because there will
be trying times ahead.
I'm sure it will be well worth
it if Carol Sue. and perhaps your
other grandchildren, yes, perhaps
my children, will not have to suf-
fer in a world full of war, hate
and starvation.
There is no need for it to be.
Meanwhile, take good care of
yourself and remember that I
think of you always.
Your loving son,
OSCAR.

Hence, it came as a shock to
see chinks in the armor of one
of the truly good presidents o'

shrunk in our estimation, when
taken in conjunction with the
conduct of the election meeting of
Sholom Lodge. A capacity at-

contributed to the confusion, bu:
did not obscure his personal con-
tribution to the "stop Friedman'

?r I GUERILLA CHANUKA
By DAVID SCHWARTZ
Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc.
I cannot vouch for the story I
am about to tell. There are so
many things that happen in time
of war and it is impossible to
check up. I can only tell the
story as it was given to me.
It is a story about some Jews
in a small town in Russia. I can-
not remember the name of the
town. It was never good on those
Russian names. I remember Ve-
liki-Lukie, I am ashamed to say,
not because the Russians fought
so heroically there, but because
Veliki-Lukie somehow reminded
me of coca-cola. You seeboth
have the same repetition of simi-
lar sounds.
Otherwise, I most always get
the names of the Russians towns

lage I speak of sounded some-
thing like Ribevsk. After all
what is the difference what its
name was. It was a village like
hundreds of others which the Red
army has been retaking from the
Germans lately.
So let^s call it Ribevsk. It was
a small place even in peace time,
with a population not in excess
of 500. And, as the Germans
peared, it began to lose this popu-
lation, with most of the residents
going to the interior of Russia.
It was a grim time for Russia
and the German peril was daily
advancing closer to Ribevsk.
Finally there came orders from
the Russian command that the
scorched earth policy be applied
to the town. At the same time,
the entire population of the town
was ordered to withdraw to the
interior.
The order was subject to only
one qualification. Guerilla de-

tachments of the section mfght
designate certain people to re-
main to harass the approaching
Germans. Only one family was
left by the guerillas at Ribevsk
the Simonoffsand even they
were ordered to remain only two
weeks, since Ribevsk was not
considered important. But per-
haps it might be worthwhile to
| have one family therein case
l something unforeseen developed.
Maybe I had better tell you
I something about the Simonoffs.
I It was a very common sort of
I Russian-Jewish family. There
| was the old greybeard, a man of
70, who still retained the piety
|of prc-Soviet days. Then there
I was Hirsch, the oldest son and
Mordche, a boy of 18 Hirsch had
;an infant child of two, Rivkeh.
:Her mother was dead.
I The Simonoffs would have
! liked to send this baby girl along
, with the other evacuees, but the
i circumstances at the time made
I it impossible. Anyway, they felt
| reasonably safe. It was not likely
! anything much would happen.
] Ribevsk, as I have said, was un-
I important. Of course, if the Ger-
I mans found them, that would
I probably be their end, but that
was a chance that all must take.
They were left with a supply
of food for two weeks. I say two
weeks. Really, by normal stand-
ards of eating, there wasn't more
than a week's supply, but who
was eating normally these days?
The first week passed with
some excitement of course, be-
cause the Germans entered the
town. But the Simonoff cabin
wft sufficiently camouflaged to
prevent detection. The Simonoff
hoys, of course, went about in the
night as much as they could to
see if there was anything they
could wreck or any Germans they
could kill.
It was Saturday, just a day be-
fore the two weeks were over,
when Mordche came running
back. He had startling news. He
had overheard some German of-
ficers. They were establishing
one of the largest munitions sup-
plies in that part of Russia in
Ribevsk. He had heard the of-
ficers saying that there were or-
ders that the storehouse must be
finished and fully stocked before
the end of another week.
The Simonoffs looked at one
another. They knew that there
was only one day's food left. If
they could hold out but another
week! If it wasn't for little Riv-
keh they would be able to man-
age somehow, said Mordche. and
Hirscho looked perturbed. Hirsch
thought of little Rivkeh and of
his aged father. He said nothing.
Ho paced the floor with Mordche
following him. "We must stick.
In a week we will be able to blow
up the German storehouse," said
Mordche.
The old man turned away. He
went to the shelf and returned
with a candle. His sons eyed
him. "You can't eat a candle,"
th "Well," said the old man. I have
heard that some of the tribes in
the frozen north do eat candles,
but who wants to eat candles?
"It's Chanuka, my sons, and I
want to light a Chanuka candle."
"Ah, pop, you are a wonderful
man." said Mordche. "At such a
time you still think of religion.

We have a problem here. Shall
we remain and take our chances
or not?"
"My sons," said the old man,
"that is for you to decide. I am
an old man. I belong to a dif-
ferent generation, I am afraid.
Please tolerate me, if you cannot
quite sympathize with me. Please,
my sons, put your hats on, as I
make the benediction."
The old man lit the candle and
chanted in his voice full of the
sad music of old Jewishness:
"Blessed are thou, O Lord, who
has commanded us to light this
Chanuka candle."
The sons listened reverently.
"My sons," he went on, "the he-
roic Maccabees after ousting the
invading enemy, found in the
temple only enough oil for one
daybut God sent a miracle, and
the oil lasted for eight days," he
repeated the last sentence in a
voice that faded out in impressive
softness. "But a miracle hap-
pened and the oil lasted for eight
days."
Then the old man paused: "But
my sons, you haven't decided
whether we shall remain or not.
What do you say?"
"We are remaining," they an-
swered in chorus.
That's the story I heard as it
was given to me. The only other
thing to add is that this story ex-
plains why the old man Simonoff
was subsequently honored with
the Order of Lenin for being re-
sponsible for the destruction of
one of the largest storehouses of
German arms in Russia.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER l7
LIGHT ON CHANUKfl
By BERNARD POSTAL
Director of B"nai B'rith Publicity
Among the many explanations
advanced for the origin of the
name Chanuka is that it comes
from Chanok. or Enoch, a char-
acter in Genesis, the great-grcat-
great grandson of Adam, who
lived 365 years, and who is asso-
i latcd by mystics with light be-
cause his years on earth equalled
the number of days of the sun's
journey.
Chanuka literally means dedi-
cation, the dedication having ref-
erence to the ancient Temple in
Jerusalem which was re-dedi-
cated after the triumph of the
Jews over their oppressors.
Chanuka is observed for eight
day- because of the tradition that
a i-rus.' <>t ml found in the Tl m-
ple after the Jewish victory
burned for eight days although
there was only enough oil for
one day.
The first day ol Chanuka can
never occur on a Tuesday This

the Chanuka lights outside the
house.
The kindling of Chanuka lights
was prohibited in the third cen-
tury of the Christian era in Per-
sia because the fire-worshipping
Magians. to whom fire was sa-
cred, were in power.
Chanuka is the only Jewish
festival based on a Jewish tri-
umph of arms against its ene-
mies.
Jerusalem was liberated from
the Turks on Chanuka in 1917.
General Allenby having entered
the city during the Feast of
Lights.
of the Chanuka story, offered a
burn offering in the Temple of
Jerusalem on that day three years
before the Maccabeans instituted
Chanuka.
Weddings may take place on
Chanuka. but not on Punm. al-
though both are minor feauvau
in the Hebrew calendar.
"Maoz Tzur." the familiar hymn
that is sung after the kindlum
Of the Chanuka lights, is not a
Jewish melody but an adaptation
of an old German lolk song ol
the Middle Ages. This German
tune has also been utilized by
Christians. Martin Luther having
employed it for his chorals One
of the poems m Lord Byron s
"Hebrew Mi "On Jor-
dan's Banks" was set to the
music ol "Maoz Tzur by the
great poet's Jewish friend. Isaac
Nathan.
The story of Chanuka does not
appear in the Old Testament, but
is recounted in the post-Biblical
books ol the Maccabees, all writ-
ten in Greek I y Palestinian,
Alexandrian and Cyrenese Jew-
ish writers within half a century
after the events portrayed in the
Chanuka saga. The writers were

raelites after their exodus from
Egypt and their emblem of na-
tionhood.
The word Mcnorah means can-
dlestick in Hebrew. Originally,
the Menorah was simply the
source of illumination for the
Temple in Jerusalem. The Me-
norah in the Temple was seven-
branched, but because it was for-
bidden to reproduce the sacred
golden Menorah of the Temple
for ritual or other purposes, the
Chanuka Menorah is not seven-
branched.
In the light of the proscription
on imitating the Menorah. the
Jews of old fashioned a lamp of
similar shape for the Chanuka
service by utilizing the Menorah
motif and adapting it to the needs
of an eight-day festival by means
of a lamp of four semi-circles in-
stead of three, with the central
shaft used for the Shammash.

Chanuka With Today's Maccabees
By RUTH KARPF
Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc.
There was no blackout in Jeru-
salem on Chanuka of 1938. Not
one with the lights out anyway.
But there was a tenseness in the
air much heavier than any black-
out.
They had buried three more
Jews that afternoonthe 24th of
Kislev. A silent wall of people
had stood at attention for those
three boys before the stretchers
were put on the car that carried
them to the Mount of Olives.
Some of the boys from their col-
lective had come to town for the
funeral. They wore khaki shorts
and blue shirts and their hands
were dusty and their faces grey
with tenseness. They went back
to work when the funeral was
over.
I asked one of them whether
they would be lighting Chanuka
candles that night. He looked at
the stretchers with the bodies
covered with just a piece of lin-
en; and he said: 'Yes. we will."
It was dark when I started out
for the colony on the outskirts of
Jerusalem. As dark as it can be

under the brilliant brightness of
a Palestinian December sky. In
the city itself, the streets were
alive with the quivering shadows
that candles make when they
cast reflections from behind a
windowpane. Kids were running
through the streets, laughing and
every once in a while one could
catch snatches of Maos Zur; it
seemed as though the echo of
that song was in the air. High
up on the Bezallel Museum, for
everyone in the city to see. one
candle was lit in the eight armed
Menorah. The candle for the
Maccabees.
I asked for the boy I had talked
to at the funeral when I got to
the colony. They said he was
standing watch.
They had to be careful about
standing watches then. It was
illegal. When they guarded their
home and their fields and their
lives at night, they had to watch
out that they weren't caught at
it. We answered the Hebrew
challenge three times before we
got to the little room in which

they hid their rifles and from
which one could see far afield
even to the mountains of Judea
and to the Dead Sea. The pass-
word that night was "Maccabim."
It was dark in that watchroom.
All one could see at first were
the barrels of the guns; only later
one's eyes got used to the dark-
ness and one distinguished fig-
ures, faces.
There was an old man with
grey wiry hair and a broad peas-
ant face. He wore britches and
an open Russian shirt. He han-
dled his rifle as young mothers
handle their babies. It had been
a close friend for more than 30
years. He was one of the first
Shomrim, one of those who stood
watches when Tel Aviv was still
a stretch of sand and Rehavia not
even a dream.
"If we could only sing a while,"
a husky voice from one corner It
belonged to a younger man, and
the way he pronounced his R's
showed he was a "Sabre"born
and bred in the country. "It
would help keep us awake. I've
worked in the stables all day"
but song carries and they had to
be careful.
"Let's light a candle." That
was the kid whom I had spoken
to at the funeral. A blue-eyed,
(air-haired boy. Seventeen, per-
haps, or 18. He was born in Ger-
many; came over with the Youth
Aliyah. "It's Chanuka today."
There was a quiver in his voice;
and the mountains of Judea
seemed to throw it back.
The others were silent for a
minute. It was dangerous to light
a candle. Police might be around,
or Arabs, and if they saw a light.
"They deserve it," said the kid
his name was Jarivand the
quiver was still there. Later I
heard that one of the boys that
were buried that afternoon was
Jariv's brother.
They set a candle on the floor,
fastened with hot wax. Around
it they piled up their blankets,
to screen the lights. And the
Sabre, who was a broad, heavy-
set fellow covered the slit that
served as a look out with his
chest.
They didn't say much as they
watched the candle burn down
slowly. Only the kid spoke up
once.
"We'll keep that candle burn-
ing." he said. "They did when
the Greeks tried to put it out.
We can do it today."
And then a shot rang through
the night. And the kid slung
the rifle over his shoulder and
walked out into the night.
"Unless we learn to live in har-
many with peoples of different
races, different religions, or dif-
ferent color, we will never have
the kind of peace we hope for."
Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt.
In the B'nai B'rith ritual the
seven lights of the Menorah are
illuminated to the accompani-
emnt of a special prayer. The
lights, in order, stand for LIGHT,
JUSTICE, PEACE, TRUTH. BE-

LOVE and HARMONY, the lat-

The quaint origin of latkes as
the most popular Chanuka deli-
cacy is supposed to be the pan-
cakes hastily prepared by the
Jewish women for the soldiers of
Maccabeus when they halted for
rest while pursuing the troops of
the Syrians. So strengthened
were the Maccabean warriors by
those pancakes, that Judas Mac-
cabeus is supposed to have de-
creed that Jews should eat latkes
on Chanuka.
The traditional Chanuka drei-
del's four Hebrew letters on each
sideNun, Gimmel, Hay and

brew words Ness Godol Hoyah

When the question was asked:
' What is Chanuka?" the rabbis
answered with the story of the
one unpolluated cruse which con-
tained enough oil for one day*s
burning and yet, miraculously,
sufficed for eight. We may know
more history than those rabbis
did. but we cannot get any closer
to the real miracle of Chanuka
than they, when they told this
symbolic story. For, at the time
when the temple was lededi-
cated, the future of Judaism still
appeared insecure. No one could
have foreseen that the faith of
this little people would soon af-
fect the religions of the pagan
world and survive foi many cen-
turies The miracle of the oil is
but another way of stressing the

mands uniformity of religion and
culture as indispensable to the
unity of the state, did not vanish
with Antioehus Mental and
spiritual uniformity is the cry of
all little souls, whose aim is to
remake the world In their own
image. Against that point of view
the Maccabees struggled, and it
may legitimately be argued that
their example inspired similar
steadfastness in many succeeding
g< nerations, both of Jews and of
non-Jews. The fight against spir-
itual regimentation, begun by
them, has been continued by the
Jewish minority wherever it has
lived. That is the universal ele-
ment in the Chanuka story, and
it needs emphasis today as much
as al any time in the past.
But it is not only a call to re-
sistance that the Story of Cha-
nuka has served as a source of
inspiration to the Jewish people.
The purity of the Jewish faith
has always been connected with
thi' need for sacrifice, and since
the days of the Maccabees such
sacrifices evokes their memory,
and the memory oi the men and
women of their generation.
To conform would have been
easier than to resist; but they
preferred to resist, and to remain
loyal to what they held to be
nobler and better So also, sub-
sequent generations found in the
rites of Chanuka a ceremonial
symbolizing their own problems.
'and inspiring them to like loyal-
ties. This is the real significance
for history of the events of that
I day.
Thus it becomes clear that m
Jewish liXc the outstanding le-
nient of Chanuka is not the vic-
tory of arms, nor the national
.glory and power won by subse-
quent Hasmonean conquests. The
meaning of the festival is spir-
itual, not material True, it em-
phasizes Jewish solidarity: but
that is a solidarity of sacrifice and
devotion.
For centuries, the feast oi dedi-
cation has been celebrated m the
Jewish home and m the syna-
gogui. Bach generation had
drawn from it rent wed inspira-
tion tor mi eting its own peculiar

day, there is lack of unaiiiii Hv

* JeIsti FhrMian nUDAY, DECmBg T^y Tit FEAST OF LIGHTS By EMILY SOLIS-COHEN, Jr. When the question was asked: What is Chanuka?" the rabbis answered with the story of the one unpolluated cruse which contained enough oil for one day*s burning and yet, miraculously, sufficed for eight. We may know more history than those rabbis did. but we cannot get any closer to the real miracle of Chanuka than they, when they told this symbolic story. For, at the time when the temple was lededicated, the future of Judaism still appeared insecure. No one could have foreseen that the faith of this little people would soon affect the religions of the pagan world and survive foi many centuries The miracle of the oil is but another way of stressing the miracle <>i Judaism and its continue • \! i %  than 121 centuries have elapsed since Syro-Grecian and Hasmonean clashed in battle. It cannot be said that Jewish life has been easy SHUT that critical moment. The attitude that deIIKST Wislli:> Ti > Ot'R M \N V ]i:wisii I-I:II:NI>S . [ATR< NS NAT'S SANDWICH SHOP 1029 Washington Ave. Ph.5-9761 mands uniformity of religion and culture as indispensable to the unity of the state, did not vanish with Antioehus Mental and spiritual uniformity is the cry of all little souls, whose aim is to remake the world In their own image. Against that point of view the Maccabees struggled, and it may legitimately be argued that their example inspired similar steadfastness in many succeeding g< nerations, both of Jews and of non-Jews. The fight against spiritual regimentation, begun by them, has been continued by the Jewish minority wherever it has lived. That is the universal element in the Chanuka story, and it needs emphasis today as much as al any time in the past. But it is not only a call to resistance that the Story of Chanuka has served as a source of inspiration to the Jewish people. The purity of the Jewish faith has always been connected with thi' need for sacrifice, and since the days of the Maccabees such sacrifices evokes their memory, and the memory oi the men and women of their generation. To conform would have been easier than to resist; but they preferred to resist, and to remain loyal to what they held to be nobler and better So also, subsequent generations found in the rites of Chanuka a ceremonial symbolizing their own problems. 'and inspiring them to like loyalties. This is the real significance for history of the events of that I day. Thus it becomes clear that m Jewish liXc the outstanding •lenient of Chanuka is not the victory of arms, nor the national .glory and power won by subsequent Hasmonean conquests. The meaning of the festival is spiritual, not material True, it emphasizes Jewish solidarity: but that is a solidarity of sacrifice and devotion. For centuries, the feast oi dedication has been celebrated m the Jewish home and m the synagogui. Bach generation had drawn from it rent wed inspiration tor mi eting its own peculiar problems If in this, our own day, there is lack of unaiiiii Hv as to the message brought by the Chanuka lights, the differences an on the surface The fundamental message ren ains the same |i H I; as Jew inceri and loyal, the light ol Judaism will not grow dim.

W. 10th St., from their son, Pete, with the armed forces somewhere in Italy. Dear Dad and Mother: Have been receiving your mail regularly, but have had little time to answer. Have not received any packages for quite a while, but I believe from your letters that there are two boxes of 50 each and one of 100 cigars on the way. I will let you know when they arrive. Today I found a small synagogue hidden on the third floor of a bomb-shattered building. It was intact. The altar was not damaged. I tried to talk with the rabbi, but again ran into the same trouble I had in Africa. They only speak the native language and Hebrew, which I do not understand. I left him some money for the synagogue and will try to go there when they have services. I figure that "Yahr Ziet" will be on the 4th Candle of Chanuka and have made arrangements to attend the proper ceremony at that time. Bet regards, PETE. ^ w\ wy F\ PARADE! teWUTIEFMrc Marvin Apte, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Apte, was promoted from seaman second class to gunners mate third class and sent to advanced school in San Diego, Cal., for 12 weeks' training.

Fisher. 1211 Pennsylvania Ave., who are residing at the Royston-Royal Apartments. OSCAR RAPPAPORT WRITES INTERESTING LETTER HOME Timely thoughts were expressed this week in a letter to his father, Mr. Max Rappaport, by Oscar Rappaport. The letter stated: Dear Dad: I received your letter with Sally's address and I'll be able to drop her a line. Also I wish you. would let me know when Chanu'a falls; maybe I'll go into Tulsa if it's beginning is on a weekend. As you notice, it is two years today since the attack on Pearl Harbor. I can remember that Sunday as though it were yesterday. That's what started it all. Shortly after the U. S. declared wor on Japan, Italy and Germany. I believe that two years from today will see it all over with, and we may all again be home. We surely have a lot to talk over and a lot to say to each other. I think Japan's politicians will live to regret what happened exactly two years ago. It's going to be a lung war and a hard one, but we WILL beat them. It's up to the Americans at home to do ALL they can. To keep their heads high and their nerves strong, because there will be trying times ahead. I'm sure it will be well worth it if Carol Sue. and perhaps your other grandchildren, yes, perhaps my children, will not have to suffer in a world full of war, hate and starvation. There is no need for it to be. Meanwhile, take good care of yourself and remember that I think of you always. Your loving son, OSCAR. S/Sgt.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1943 +Jewistfk>ridikHi PAGE ELEVEN Chanuka With Today's Maccabees By RUTH KARPF Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc. There was no blackout in Jerusalem on Chanuka of 1938. Not one with the lights out anyway. But there was a tenseness in the air much heavier than any blackout. They had buried three more Jews that afternoon—the 24th of Kislev. A silent wall of people had stood at attention for those three boys before the stretchers were put on the car that carried them to the Mount of Olives. Some of the boys from their collective had come to town for the funeral. They wore khaki shorts and blue shirts and their hands were dusty and their faces grey with tenseness. They went back to work when the funeral was over. I asked one of them whether they would be lighting Chanuka candles that night. He looked at the stretchers with the bodies covered with just a piece of linen; and he said: 'Yes. we will." It was dark when I started out for the colony on the outskirts of Jerusalem. As dark as it can be TO ALL SEASONS BEST WISHES M. B.

In the city itself, the streets were alive with the quivering shadows that candles make when they cast reflections from behind a windowpane. Kids were running through the streets, laughing and every once in a while one could catch snatches of Maos Zur; it seemed as though the echo of that song was in the air. High up on the Bezallel Museum, for everyone in the city to see. one candle was lit in the eight armed Menorah. The candle for the Maccabees. I asked for the boy I had talked to at the funeral when I got to the colony. They said he was standing watch. They had to be careful about standing watches then. It was illegal. When they guarded their home and their fields and their lives at night, they had to watch out that they weren't caught at it.

The password that night was "Maccabim." It was dark in that watchroom. All one could see at first were the barrels of the guns; only later one's eyes got used to the darkness and one distinguished figures, faces. There was an old man with grey wiry hair and a broad peasant face. He wore britches and an open Russian shirt. He handled his rifle as young mothers handle their babies. It had been a close friend for more than 30 years. He was one of the first Shomrim, one of those who stood watches when Tel Aviv was still a stretch of sand and Rehavia not even a dream. "If we could only sing a while," a husky voice from one corner It belonged to a younger man, and the way he pronounced his R's showed he was a "Sabre"—born and bred in the country. "It would help keep us awake. I've worked in the stables all day"— but song carries and they had to be careful. "Let's light a candle." That was the kid whom I had spoken to at the funeral. A blue-eyed, (air-haired boy. Seventeen, perhaps, or 18. He was born in Germany; came over with the Youth Aliyah. "It's Chanuka today." There was a quiver in his voice; and the mountains of Judea seemed to throw it back. The others were silent for a minute. It was dangerous to light a candle. Police might be around, or Arabs, and if they saw a light. "They deserve it," said the kid —his name was Jariv—and the quiver was still there. Later I heard that one of the boys that were buried that afternoon was Jariv's brother. They set a candle on the floor, fastened with hot wax. Around it they piled up their blankets, to screen the lights. And the Sabre, who was a broad, heavyset fellow covered the slit that served as a look out with his chest. They didn't say much as they watched the candle burn down slowly. Only the kid spoke up once. "We'll keep that candle burning." he said. "They did when the Greeks tried to put it out. We can do it today." And then a shot rang through the night. And the kid slung the rifle over his shoulder and walked out into the night. "Unless we learn to live in harmany with peoples of different races, different religions, or different color, we will never have the kind of peace we hope for." —Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. In the B'nai B'rith ritual the seven lights of the Menorah are illuminated to the accompaniemnt of a special prayer. The lights, in order, stand for LIGHT, JUSTICE, PEACE, TRUTH. BENEVOLENCE, BROTHERLY LOVE and HARMONY, the latter three being the three virtues which make up B'nai B'rith's motto. <; i: i-: i: r i N <; s LEW HEWES Outboard Motors—Boats Authorized Johnson Dealers Since 1925 \ 414 N.

DECEMBER 17. 1943 KISLEV 20. 5704 VOLUME 16 NUMBER 51 -TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHEREMuctfy eonfldentlal -By PHINEAS J. BIRONODDITIES Preparations are under way for a most intensiv CHANUKA The observance of Chanuka, traditional holiday commemorating Jewish courage and renewal, will have added significance this year with the kindling of the lights of hope for the liberation and reconstruction of millions of Jews. Jews celebrate Chanuka when the Christian world celebrates its great festival of good cheer. There are many points of similarity in the observance. Both mark it, for example, by the exchange of gifts. Yet the two holidays commemorate very different matters. Ideologically, they thus stand apart in their roots, yet there is a relationship here also. Both Judaism and Christianity, for all their differenceshave this thing in common, that they bespeak the issue about which the world is fighting today. Both Judaism and Christianity sound the democratic message. Both declare that the quintesence of religion is the brotherhood of man. The doctrine "love thy neighbor as thyself" is found both in the Old Testament and the New. The kindling of the lights, marking the feast of Chanuka in observance of the Maccabean victory over the Assyrians, will this year also symbolize the kindling of the lights of freedom in lands which have hitherto been in the grip of darkness and oppression. As in the case of other Jewish holidays. Chanuka has special meaning in terms of the present Jewish situation. Invoking the heroic spirit of the Maccabees of old. many Jews who were faced with annihilation displayed gallantry and endurance which have added new lustre to the Maccabean tradition. We are engaged in a new Maccabean fight today. The soldiers in the uniforms of the United Nations are fighting the same fight as that of Judas Maccabeus when he ousted the heathen invaders from Palestine. The light of the Chanuka candles for all the tragedy that is about us, reassure us that the end of this great battle of today will not differ from that in which the Maccabeans of old, were engaged. # The Budgel Committee of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation ii new completing its series of lengthy hearings on the budgetary requirements "t the participating ag< ncies with view to the forthcoming 1944 campaign. Following the procedure of previdus years, all organizations requesting funds from the federation submil itemized and detailed budgets, which are discussed in an executive session of the committee.

These presumably must be better than the Polish camps, since nothing can be worse Walter Winchell is very proud of the Gestapo's decree that any German caught reading his column is to be shot summarily In case you've been wondering how any German ever has a chance to commit this heinous crime, here's the news that the anti-Nazi underground smuggles the columns into Germany, and that they're passed from hand to hand under the Gestapo's very nose We hope a few columns eventually find their way into the hands of Goebbels and Goering.

His stature has shrunk in our estimation, when taken in conjunction with the conduct of the election meeting of Sholom Lodge. A capacity attendance in the contested election for the presidency for 1944 contributed to the confusion, bu: did not obscure his personal contribution to the "stop Friedman' I movement.

DECEMBER 17, 1943 PRICE 10 CENTS Court Finds Men Guilty Having Arms Jerusalem (JTA).—Five colonists from the Hulda settlement were found guilty this week of illegal possession of arms. The president of the military court which has been hearing the case, Major Russel Lawrence, when delivering the verdict, appealed to Jacob Haas and Jacob Galata, the two Hulda settlers who had pleaded guilty at the trial's opening, to reveal the source of the arms, indicating that the sentences of all seven would be milder if they do so. Haas and Galata were given a week to decide whether or not they will "assist the authorities to discover the source of the captured arms." The court will issue its sentence at the end of the week. "My appeal to those who pleaded guilty should not be misunderstood as a promise to acquit them," the president of the court said. "Nor is it a threat. It simply means that their sentences may be considered in another light, should they decide to reveal from where the illegal arms came." ^^^^_ Alliance to Raise Funds for Rescue New York (JTA).—The Jewish National Workers' Alliance will attempt to raise $750,000 within the next 60 days for rescue work and Jewish development in Palestine, it was announced at a mass meeting of the organization in Carnegie Hall, attended by 4,000 persons. During this same period the Alliance will conduct a drive to sell $1,000,000 worth of war bonds. Friedman President B'nai B'rith 1944; Other Officers Milton A.

PAGE TEN +Je*lstncridlk*n FRIDAY, DECEMB ER l7 LIGHT ON CHANUKfl By BERNARD POSTAL Director of B"nai B'rith Publicity Among the many explanations advanced for the origin of the name Chanuka is that it comes from Chanok. or Enoch, a character in Genesis, the great-grcatgreat grandson of Adam, who lived 365 years, and who is assoi latcd by mystics with light because his years on earth equalled the number of days of the sun's journey. Chanuka literally means dedication, the dedication having reference to the ancient Temple in Jerusalem which was re-dedicated after the triumph of the Jews over their oppressors. Chanuka is observed for eight daybecause of the tradition that a i-rus.' <>t ml found in the Tl mple after the Jewish victory burned for eight days although there was only enough oil for one day. The first day ol Chanuka can never occur on a Tuesday This \\\ dm laj. Deer* mber 22nd. the Chanuka lights outside the house. The kindling of Chanuka lights was prohibited in the third century of the Christian era in Persia because the fire-worshipping Magians. to whom fire was sacred, were in power. Chanuka is the only Jewish festival based on a Jewish triumph of arms against its enemies. Jerusalem was liberated from the Turks on Chanuka in 1917. General Allenby having entered the city during the Feast of Lights. of the Chanuka story, offered a burn offering in the Temple of Jerusalem on that day three years before the Maccabeans instituted Chanuka. Weddings may take place on Chanuka. but not on Punm. although both are minor feauvau in the Hebrew calendar. "Maoz Tzur." the familiar hymn that is sung after the kindlum Of the Chanuka lights, is not a Jewish melody but an adaptation of an old German lolk song ol the Middle Ages. This German tune has also been utilized by Christians. Martin Luther having employed it for his chorals One of the poems m Lord Byron s "Hebrew Mi —"On Jordan's Banks" was set to the music ol "Maoz Tzur by the great poet's Jewish friend. Isaac Nathan. The story of Chanuka does not appear in the Old Testament, but is recounted in the post-Biblical books ol the Maccabees, all written in Greek I y Palestinian, Alexandrian and Cyrenese Jewish writers within half a century after the events portrayed in the Chanuka saga. The writers were followers of the Maci One of the monarchs of the Chazars, a South Russian p< M ho were converted to Judaism in the eighth century, was named Chanuka. raelites after their exodus from Egypt and their emblem of nationhood. The word Mcnorah means candlestick in Hebrew. Originally, the Menorah was simply the source of illumination for the Temple in Jerusalem. The Menorah in the Temple was sevenbranched, but because it was forbidden to reproduce the sacred golden Menorah of the Temple for ritual or other purposes, the Chanuka Menorah is not sevenbranched. In the light of the proscription on imitating the Menorah. the Jews of old fashioned a lamp of similar shape for the Chanuka service by utilizing the Menorah motif and adapting it to the needs of an eight-day festival by means of a lamp of four semi-circles instead of three, with the central shaft used for the Shammash.

FEDERATION r LASHES PLANS BEING MADE FOR A NEW SCHOOL IS DISCUSSED Office Volunteers One of the first officers named for the 1944 Federation Campaign is Mrs. Meyer Schwartz, who will serve as co-chairman of office volunteers. Mrs. Schwartz has already received office assistance from several experienced campaign workers and has been pledged support by several membership organizations. Volunteers have begun their campaign work in the offices of the Federation under Mrs. Schwartz's direction. Those who are interested in assisting in this unportunt work, may arrange to do so by contacting Mrs. Schwartz at 3-5411. Collections Record Being Set Federation is in the midst of a drive to clean up as many of its old subscriptions as possible by the end of 1943. Most of these subscriptions are due for the current year, but some are due for a longer period of time. During this drive, emphasis is being placed on the fact that contributions paid before December 31, 1943, are deductible in computing 1943 income taxes. Collections are at an all time record high, since they have passed the 92% mark for 1943 pledges. Fed(ration's collection committee is under the chairmanship of Jacob Sher, who is impressing upon subscribers that he is anxious to complete his duties in this line of work so that he may concentration the job of 1944 campaign chairman. Plans for the formation of a Yeshiva and Paroachial school were discussed at a meeting of interested individuals last Saturday night at Beth Jacob Congregation. Rabbi Moses Mescheloff presided at the meeting at which preliminary details were formulated and committees were selected. Additional gatherings in the interest of the proposed school which is to be housed on Miami Beach and which, according to present plans, is scheduled for opening Feb. 1, will be announced. A temporary office of the proposed institution is being maintained at the Beth Jacob Congregation. Hefcoeeft tyou, and WU. By BORIS SMOLAR Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc.

By their uncouth behavior to their tenants and to OPA officials, they invite anti Semitism. What can be done about making them realize the harm they are doing? This problem, brought out succinctly by our correspondent, has been besetting us for many months. The situation is extremely complicated and is as variable and unpredictable as human behavior itself. Unfortunately,, we do not possess police powers. At times, we wish we did. OPA does, however, and as this is being written we understand that drastic action is being planned against two or three of the worst offenders. More power to OPA! We hope that the action taken will be so drastic as to give other would-be offenders pause for thought. To the credit of the great majority of apartment house owners, let it be said that they have played fair. The officials of the Miami Beach Apartment House Association are well aware of the problem and its implications, and are cooperating closely with this office in developing a program, not only of self-discipline and education, but also of better public relations. Danzig's Engagement RINGS Seri Rabbi S. H. Baron, spiritual leader of Temple Emanu-El in Ft, Lauderdale, announced services and activities for the temple and sisterhood for the coming week.

PHONE 7-4930 THE PALESTINE FRONT Big doings regarding Palestine are now brewing in London And they are reflected in Washington It would be premature to mention any names here, but it can be disclosed that Dr. Weizmann is more optimistic than ever after seeing a few of the most important men in England ... He has summoned three members of the Zionist executive from Jerusalem and three Zionist leaders from the United States to come to London Though the campaign against the White Paper will not cease, Zionist leaders are now less worried about this document ... In fact, they consider it practically abandoned after the statement made by Colonial Minister Stanley in Parliament that approximately 30,000 Jews will be permitted to enter Palestine even after the expiration of the term of the White Paper next March They figure that by that time the last of these 30,000 Jews reach Palestine, the status of the country may have undergone a substantial change which. will automatically nullify the White Paper Zionist leaders in London are now concentrating their efforts on securing such a change And the change will not mean partition to which the Zionist leaders are now saying "no" guite definitely ... By the way, the Colonial Office in London still keeps on insisting that it is not aware of any new partition plan regarding Palestine .. But why doesn't the Colonial Office check with former Colonial Secretary Lord Moyne and with Robert Casey, British Minister for the Middle East? These two gentlemen are in a position to give the Colonial Office all the details of the project Did you hear of the report Senator Mead brought back to Washington from his trip to the Middle East... All Arab leaders with whom the Senator spoke presented to him various demands, but none of them mentioned the ArabJewish question in Palestine "What about the Jewish claims for Palestine?" the Senator could not resist asking some of the Arab notables "Well," was the reply, "we'll find a way to get along with the Jews" THE RUSSIAN FRONT Jan Masaryk, Czechoslovak Foreign Minister who is now in the United States, has cabled to President Benes in Moscow reminding him to take up with Stalin the Palestine question ... Dr. Benes sometime ago promised Zionist leaders to do so, and even accepted from them a memorandum to this effect ... He is now in Moscow discussing with Stalin the post-war relations between the Soviet Union and a liberated Czechoslovakia ... A prominent American who just returned from various parts of Europe and Africa believes that if the Jews ever get what they want in Palestine, it will be due to the United States and Russia ... He discounts Britain He came to these conclusions on the basis of talks which he had with Soviet, American and British diplomats in the countries which he visited ... I believe that it will be revealing no secret when I say that Dr. Lebedenko, the head of the Soviet Red Cross who is now in this country, played an important role in the negotiations between the JDC and the Soviet government which culminated in the JDC securing permission to send food and clothing for distribution in Jewish-populated sections of the U. S. S. R. It is James N. Rosenberg who deserves credit for initiating these negotiations, in which Paul Baerwald and Joseph C. Hyman later participated ... Dr. Lebedenko, incidentally, is one of the greatest brain surgeons in the world. THE JEWISH FRONT The Nazi persecution of Jews made many English-speaking Jews in the democratic countries Jew-conscious ... A large number of them, particularly the young generation of Jews in America, know very little, however, ol Jewish history "The Epic of a People" by A. Addleson, just published by the Bloch Publishing Co., aims at filling this gap ... In one volume all of the Jewish history from Abraham, who was the father of the Jews, up to the outbreak of the present war is presented in a manner which makes easy and interesting reading Though not as exhaustive as other books on the same subject, the "Epic of a People" has an advantage over the others in that its last chapters deal with the eclipse of German Jewry, with the Jewish refugee situation, with the Evian Conference and with many other developments of contemporary Jewish history ... It even carries a map showing the boundaries of the proposed Jewish state in Palestine suggested in 1938 under the so-called "partition plan" of the British Royal Commission The volume, which is actually a handbook on Jewish history, also contains a chapter on the Jews of America which briefly reviews Jewish development in the United States from the days of the early settlement till about 1935 .. One of the best chapters is the one on Palestine which reviews modern Zionism from the time of Dr. Herzl until the British White Paper of 1939 against which the Jews in all democratic countries are now fighting The book deserves to be in the home of every American Jew who wants his children to retain Jewish self-respect. THE HOME FRONT ... Will the United Jewish Appeal be renewed for the coming year? Much bargaining is now going on between the JDC and the Zionists around the negotiations for a renewal of the UJA agreement The JDC claims that the Zionist partner is collecting funds in America outside of the United Jewish Appeal ... It points especially to the collections of the Jewish National Fund ... By the time this is published the bargaining may be over and the United Jewish Appeal renewed Don't be too optimistic about Congress passing the pending resolution which recommends the formation of a special government committee to deal with the immediate rescue of Jews in Europe. ... You can expect, however, that
