New York (JTA)A protest
against the anti-Jewish cam-
paign being carried on in Argen-
tina by newspapers which are
among the staunchest supporters
of Gen. Ramirez, was presented
last week td the Argentine Minis-
ter of Interior Alberto ilbert by
the DAIA, the central Jewish
representative body in Buenos
Aires, the New York Times re-
ports.
Signed by Dr. Moises Goldman.
gresident of the DAIA, and by Dr.
iavid Tabakman, secretary, the
protest cited among other anti-
Semitic incidents that in the city
of Salta, a Jewish theatrical com-
pany was assailed on two consec-
utive nights. The anti-Jewish
propaganda, they said, led to such
outrages and seriously alarmed
the Jewish community in the
country.
Last Aug. 4 the Minister of the
Interior publicly instructed the
Federal Commissioners in all
provinces to forbid publication by
newspapers of anything that
might "wound or mortify" any
section of the Argentine popula-
tion by attacks upon its "nation-
ality of origin, religion, beliefs or
customs." These instructions
have remained a dead letter, the
New York Times correspondent
cables from Buenos Aires. Even
in Bueno Aires nationalistic pa-
pers continue to heap abuse upon
Jews. Indeed, whatever repres-
sive measures have been applied
have been taken against Jewish
newspapers, not those that attack
the Jews, the correspondent adds.
All children of the Jew-
ish Religious Schools of
Greater Miami will meet on
Chanuka, Sunday, Decem-
ber 26th. at 10:00 a. m. at
the Tower Theatre. S. W
8th St. and ISth Ave. A
Chanuka program has been
arranged, under the aus-
pices of the Rabbinical As-
sociation. Parents are urged
to bring their children in
their cars, attend the pro-
gram, and wait to take them
home.

10 ACT OUTLAWING
E
E
Zurich, (JTA)A resolution de-
manding the revocation of anti-
Jewish legislation in Hungary
was introduced in the Hungarian
Parliament by Baczy Zsilinsky,
leading deputy of the Smallhold-
ers Party, it was learned here
from a report in Hitler's personal
newspaper, the Voelkischer Beo-
bachter, which reached here from
Berlin.
The Hungarian deputy charac-
terized the anti-Jewish laws as
a "disgrace for Hungary." "The
soul of Hungary should be saved
by having all the anti-Semitic
laws repealed," he is quoted as
having said. Liberal and Socialist
members of the parliament are
reported by the Nazi paper to
have promised to support the res-
olution.
Commenting upon the pro-
Jewish resolution, the Voelkisch-
er Beobachter warns Hungary
against taking any steps in favor
of the Jews. "Such steps are
bound to have serious conse-
quences for the Hungarian peo-
ple," the Nazi organ writes.

Geneva, (JTA)The Jewish
community council in Cracow,
which acted as the central body
for all the Jews in occupied Pol-
and, has been dissolved by the
German authorities, it is learned
here this week. All members of
the council, including Dr. Michael
Weichert and David Hilfstein
who headed the body, have been
deoorted, the report reaching here
from Poland says. The Cracow
Jewish council was the last Jew-
ish reoresentative body in occu-
pied Poland.
A Jew who succeeded in es-
caping from Poland told Jewish
organizations here that the ma-
jority of the Jews still left in
Poland are held in concen ration
camps in the Lublin area. He es-
timated that hundreds of thou-
sands of Jews were executed in
the Sebibor camp which, he said,
was constructed under the super-
vision of an engineer named Mos-
,r who is the head of the public-
works department in Cracow.
Stockholm (JTA)The report
that a sub-committee of the Swed-
1 ish Parliament has drafted a law
I which would outlaw the distribu-
| tion of racial propaganda has
aroused opposition in some quar-
! ters here, although labor and lib-
! cral groups have expressed grat-
I ification.
An article in the Stockholm
i press says that the Goteborg
city council voiced doubts con-
cerning the advisability of the
proposed legislation. The Gote-
borg legislators, according to the
article, believe that some kind of
law is necessary, but "question
the advisability of introducing
laws calculated to give special
privileges to a strictly limited
i section of the community." Sim-
ilar sentiments were voiced re-
; cently by the Malme county
council. .
The Commissioner of the Swed-
ish State Police, Niles Swenson,-
has also expressed opposition to
the proposed measure, stating
that a law against dissemination
of racial propaganda was desir-
able, but would lead to a "real
racial and religious problem, es-
pecially as far as the Jews are
concerned."
Proponents of the legislation
have declared that it is necessary
as a means of checking the in-
creased anti-Semitic activity here,
led by the small but vociferous
Swedish Nazi party. Anti-Jew-
ish propaganda reached a new
height with the arrival of thou-
sands of Jews who fled German
persecution in Denmark.
Washington. (JTA)The House
Foreign Affairs Committee has
temporarily suspended hearings
on the Baldwin-Rogers resolu-
tion calling for the creation of a
United States commission to res-
cue the Jewish people of occu-
pied Europe, it was announced
iiere this week.
Chairman Sol Bloom of the
Foreign Affairs Committee was
charged- in the House ot Repre-
sentatives with causing "unneces-
sary delay" on the Baldwin-Rog-
ers bill. Congressman Andrew ..
Somers, New York Democrat told
the House that he deplored the
fact that the resolution, intro-
duced on November 9th. has not
yet been reported to the House.
Assistant Secretary of State
Breckenridge Long was criticized
by Congressman Samuel IJick-
stein of New York for his testi-
mony before the House Foreign
Affairs Committee with regard
to the admission of refugees to
the United States. Speaking m
the House of Representatives,
Congressman Dickstem said that
the testimony of Mr. Lor.
significant not in what it stales,
but in what it implies.
Melbourne. Australia, (JTA)
Although it has in the past
voiced its opposition to ati.i-
Semitism, the Australian Labor
Party this week rejected a pro-
posal that it endorse a resolution
advocating that Jews, as such.
be represented at the peace con-
ference.
The resolution had also de-
manded that the Labor Party.
which is holding its triennial con-
ference in Canberra, condemn
the inhuman treatment of Jews
and other oppressed peoples in
Europe and voice its opposition
to racial discrimination. An
emergency meeting of the Aus-
ralian Zionist Federation has
,.,. called for this week to dis-
, cuss the Labor Party s action.

Jerusalem, (JTA)Resentment
was felt today by the Jewish pop-
ulation in Palestine at the sen-
tences given seven Jewish set-
tlers of Hulda who were charged
with illegal possession of arms.
The seven settlers were sen-
tenced to terms varying from two
to six years in prison. Jacob Ga-
lata and Moshe Mass. the two
settlers who pleaded guilty at the
coining of the trial, announced
through their lawyer that they
did not intend to take advantage
Of the offer made by the presi-
dent of the court, that they
would be given milder sentences
if they agreed to disclose the
source from which they secured
the confiscated arms. "As self-
respecting men they would not
be ray their conscience for their
freedom." the attorney told the
court before the sentences were
, ,Ued. The two were sentenced
to six and five years imprison-
ment, respectively.
Other sentences meted out by
the court were: Israel Bnnbaum,
chairman of the Hulda settle-
ment, five years imprisonment;
Nathan Spiver. three years; Jo-
seph Steinhaus. Abraham Cohen
and Abraham Rottenberg. two
years. The sentences are sub-
ject to approval by the general
officer in command in Palestine.

TA)The release from intern-
ment in Rhodesia of Capt. Henry
Beamish, veteran anti-Semite who
has been active in anti-Jewish
movements in Germany, South
Africa, and other countries for
2 years, has aroused widespread
resentment aamong South Af-
rican Jews.
The Zionist Record carries an
editorial asking where is jus-
tice, when men like Mosley and
Beamish are released, while inno-
cent victims of the Nazis remain
in camps, and while hundreds of
Jews remain in internment in
Mauritius?"

ties as in the past to place its

LEAGUE OFFICIAL
SAYS REFUGEE IS
A
London. (JTA)Sir Herbert
Emerson, League of Nations High
Commissioner for Refugees, this
week made public a report which
he has submitted to the League,
in which he emphasizes that the
repatriation of refugees now in
the Allied countries may prove to
be "one of the least tractable of
the many problems" which will
follow the cessation of hostilities.
Sir Herbert points out that few
refugees will be inclined to re-
turn to their homeland unless
given assurances that they wilL
be unmolested there. Since, he
adds, "compulsory repatriation
seems out of the question, this is
likely to prove the least tractable
of many problems."
The position of refugees after
the war is also discussed in sev-
eral articles appearing in the
British press on the occasion of
the first anniversary of the Unit-
ed Nations Declaration on Atroc-
ities, which was issued on De-
cember 17, 1942. Eleanor Rath-
bone, Independent M. P. writing
in the Manchester Guardian, says
that many thousands of Jewish
refugees cannot be expected to
return to countries where their
relatives have been murdered,
their homes destroyed and anti-
Semitism deep-rooted.

WOULD YOU ADD A
BURDEN TO SORROW?
There are enough trials for those bereft to
stand, without having added to their sorrow the
burden of choosing a space to lay the beloved
remains.
At the time of bereavement the sufferers are
in no fit condition to choose wisely. It is unjust
and inconsiderate to leave that task to them.
Since you cherish and strive to care for your
loved ones while you live, you owe to yourself,
and to them, the protection from such a trial
added to their sorrow.
Before necessity, the choosing of a lot can
be participated in by the entire family, and the

OUR FILM FOLK
Those who believe that the Ger-
man atrocities against the Jews
should be vividly displayed to
an apathetic world will have
their wish partially satisfied in
"None Shall Escape." The film,
now completed, deals with a post-
war tribunal in Poland. Flash-
backs tell the story of the Jews,
the burning of the Torahs, the
driving of horses into synagogues.
the box cars of human cargo, th^e
slaughtering of thousands. This
will be the first picture specific-
ally mentioning Jews as Nazi vic-
time.

From the daily "minute of
Prayer" broadcasts over the Mu-
tual networks, a pocket-size book
has been published. This compil-
ation by Protestant ministers.
Catholic priests, and Jewish rab-
bis contains a prayer for every
day in the year. All royalties
from its sale go to the USO as
personal donations from the auth-
ors.

The set was ready for a scene
in "Hostages." It depicted the
office of the Nazi commissioner
of police in Prague. Idly fing-
ering the row of leather-bound
books behind the commission-
er's desk, the director suddenly
stopped pulled out two of
the largest volumes. They were
"Picturesque Palestine!" Hastily
the se'.-dresser substituted litera-
ture more suited to the Goebbels'
formula.
Pfc. Al Jolson breezed into
town this week, aflutter with
campaign ribbons denoting ser-
vice in the Caribbean, Pacific and
North African war zones. He
served on entertainment duty ten
months received the rating
and recognition from General
George Marshall. Al was met by
nine-year-old Sgt. Al Jolson, jr.,
who outranks his dad with a ser-
geancy at Blacke-Foxe Military
Academy.
*
Not content to rest on his laur-
els after providing a free hotel
for service men, Phil Goldstone
is planning a maternity hospital
where medical services will be
free to wives of service men. It
will be a memorial to his mother.
*
Life for German actors is a pre-
carious business these daysa
mouth-to-mouth existence. The
merest word of defeatism brings
forth Gestapo bullets. A Stock-
holm source reports that Actor
Anton Robert Dorsay, charged
with "undermining the German
will to defense" (?), fell before
the firing squad.


The MOST VALUABLE thing we have here at Ford is your good will. It's been
years in the making, and without it we couldn't stay in business.
At this time of year we especially like to think about our friends and those
who have helped us make them and keep them. We're grateful to the men
who have represented us so well in your neighborhood and other communities
throughout the worldour dealers. They haven't had things too easy lately.
A lot of their best men have gone into the Service \ There are few new
cars to sell. And it's a hard job getting needed repair parts and materials. But
they have carried on ... and helped keep the nation's important automotive
transportation rolling.
These dealers have done a fine and workmanlike job of staying in business
during difficult times. More than 90% of those we had two years ago are still
with us, serving the public honestly, efficiently and economically. And we want
to take our hats off to them for keeping Ford a symbol of service in its broadest,
finest sense.
We tiv.nk your
good will, which we treasure s6 highly, is in mighty good hands.

THE PEOPLE SPEAK
Agitation to effectuate the rescue of the Jews in Europe, to
cause Britain to abrogate the White Paper closing immigration
of Jews to Palestine and to pass legislation by our law-making
bodies to outlaw anti-Semitism is gaining momentum daily.
Congress is besieged with telegrams, mail and personal
visits from individuals and representatives of organizations and
committees, all pleading for action for their respective urgent
causes.
Organizations including Federation and welfare funds, civic,
social, religious, Zionistic, throughout the country, each in their
locality, are holding mass meetings and passing resolutions,
evidencing the mass sentiment of sympathy for and support of
these all important measures.
Just as it appeared that the House Foreign Affairs Commit-
tee would submit a favorable report on the Baldwin-Rogers res-
olution caling for executive establishment of a special com-
mission to save the Jews in Europe, a dissonant tone was
thrown into the proceedings by the disclosures of the secret tes-
timony of Breckinridge Long. Assistant Secretary of State.
The gist of Mr. Long's testimony was that the Baldwin Rog-
ers resolution, as framed by its proponents, was in conflict with
a secret proposal adopted at the Bermuda conference and that
the formation of the proposed commission would duplicate the
work of the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees which,
according to Mr. Long, has the plenary authority to take such
isures as "may be necessary to preserve, maintain and trans-
port displaced persons from areas where their lives and lib-
erty are in danger on account of their race, religion, or political
beliefs."
We are not inclined to argue the issue with the State De-
par: it :.: whose views Mr. Long represents. However, what
the Intergovernmental Committee on Refuqees has been doing
to i te the rescue o! in Europe is not yet known nor
of the important resolutions passed at the recent en-

I Dr. C^oebbels from Berlin and his#atellites in our own coun-
try, can tear our country apart and create on this side of the At-
lantic a balKamzation of the United States with all its attendant
discords and civil wars. There was no such organized power
and momentum at the time our Constitutional Fathers met. There
was no such gravity in past years as there is now.
To blink the existence of this new, corrosive and destructive
force for national disintegration is to be blind to emerqent social
phenomena.
"Under such circumstances, a people resolved not to permit
themselves to be destroyed must find the way to cope with this
force Education has its place but educaUon is no more the
complete answer to that problem than it is to any other problem
Over and above our school system, we still have legislative
chambers, courts, police departments, military forces In short
we do not leave everything to the gradual, the painfully slow
process of education. There is no more reason why we should
leave this destructive power free and unopposed except bv the
opposition of gradual enlightenment."
Along this line is the Lynch Bill, now pending in the United
States Congress, making it a misdemeanor to send through the
mail any literature inciting hatred of any race, group or relia-
ious denomination. *
Zionists throughout are organizing emergency committees
and their ranks are being increased by vast numbers with in-
numerable institutions affiliating.
Individuals, Jews and non-Jews are organizing in Greater
Miami and announcements will be soon forthcoming of their
plans and activities, through which they will express the senti-
ments of the people of our community on these subjects.
"God's help to us has been great in this year of march to-
ward worldwide liberty. In brotherhood with warriors of other
United Nations our gallant men have won victories, have freed
our homes from fear, have made tyranny tremble and have laid
the foundation for freedom of life in a world which wil be free "

ZIONEWS ....
If the Emergency Council for Zionist Affairs were to tell
tales out of school it could tell of great political work in Wash
ington One of America's best-known liberal statesmen is
devoting much time to clarifying the Palestine issue for some
of the thicker skulls on Capital Hill The Hartford Zionist
District recently inscribed Pierre van Paassen in the Golden
Book of the Jewish National Fund in recognition of his qreat

preparations are already under way for the celebration of
Dr. Chaim Weizmann's seventieth birthday which comes
in November. 1944 .. Samuel Caplan, editor of "The Con-
gress Weekly." has been named to replace Lillie Schultz as
secretary of the Governing Council of the American Jewish
Congress.
ART DEPARTMENT ....
Congratulations to the advertising agency that is sellinq
its clients the work of Artist Arthur Szyk, whose miniature
style is incomparably more effective in color than in the
black-and white commonly used in newspaper reproductions.
If you haven't seen Szyk's portrayal of an ailing Hitler sur-
rounded by his henchmen, we refer you to a recent ad by
the makers of Casco Electric Heating Pads Artist Elias
Newman, of whose honorable discharge from the Army we
told you some time ago, is currently in Hollywood, where
his exhibit of water colors is meeting with outstanding suc-
cess The paintings include Palestinian. American and
Mexican landscapes.
STAGE AND SCREEN ....
It may be LieutenantColonel William Wyler of the U. S.
Air Force who w.ll direct the film version of Moss Hart's
"Winged Victory" which the author, incidentally, sold to
'y F'mv: ief for the munificent sum of six dollar*.

ABOUT PEOPLE ....
Professor Albert Einstein is hard at work on a special as-
signment for the U. S. Navy About to make his screen de-
but is piano virtuoso Artur Rubinstein, who will give movie
audiences a sample of his art in "Three Cheers for the Boys."
Charlie Friedman, libretto director of Billy Rose's new hit,
"Carmen Jones." is the same fellow who wrote and directed
that hit of a few years ago, "Pins and Needles" Young-
est court attendant in the history of New York is 17-year-old
Max Hausen, who. an ex-soldier at his early age (he received
a medical discharge from the Army), decided to help lick the
manpower problem at General Sessions Court instead of go-
ing back to school Good for the directors of the 92nd Street

of the hundreds of Air Force members who constitute the
cast of "Winged Victory," and who now keep fit by means
of daily exercise at the Y.
WEEKLY GIGGLE ....
To Leonard Lyons we are indebted for the story of the
crack Nazi troops who, upon their capture in Italy, insisted on
telling the American intelligence officers that they were mem-
heard of the Herman Goering Division, of course, but never of
heard of the Herman oering Division, of course, but never of
a Herman Meyer Divisionbut the prisoners refused to give
any further explanation ... But the mystery was solved
when an officer suddenly remembered something pertinent
He rushed to the files, and unearthed a 1940 newspaper
clipping reporting Goering's boast: "If the British ever bomb
Berlin, you can call me Meyer."

Who is the gentleman, a vice-president of one of the big
department stores in New York, who has been selected by a
Jewish organization to proceed to Turkey to check whether
Turkish authorities prevent Jewish refugees from passing
through the country in transit to Palestine? The State De-
partment, which maintains that Turkey is not returning any
Jewish refugees who cross its frontiers from the Balkan coun-
tries, has given this man the right to go to Turkey and make
his own investigation and return with a report to this coun-
try .. Those who criticize Assistant Secretary of State
Breckenridge Long as responsible for practically killing the
resolution in Congress suggesting the establishment of a
government commission to effect the rescue of Jews from
Europe would be interested to learn that he warned against
"an entirely negative action" with regard to this resolution.
"It would be very dangerous to vote it down," he said before
the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, "very unwise, in
a way" ... He expressed his opinion that this is a very im-
portant moment in the history of the refugee movement, and
emphasjized that "the Jewish people are looking forward" to
the decision which the Committee on Foreign Affairs will
take on the resolution ... "If an entirely negative action were
taken, it would be misconstrued and might react against the
Jewish people under German control," he is quoted in the
official record as testifying Nevertheless, it is obvious
from the record of his testimony that he preferred that the
Foreign Affairs Committee support the Intergovernmental
Committee for Refugees rather than recommend the estab-
lishment of a special American committee for the rescue of
European Jews What he seemed to be most eager to
achieve was that any sympathy resolution Congress may
adopt concerning the Jews in Nazi-Europe should not fail
to include some very definite statement on the interest of the
American Government in the Jews "because the Government
has been interested in them."
RUSSIAN SIDELIGHTS ....
Those people in the United States who are going around
saying that after the war Soviet Russia will dominate the
world, will change their mind after reading David J. Dallin's
book, "Russia and Post-War Europe," just published by the
Yale University Press ... Mr. Dallin, an expert on Russian
affairs, estimates, by the way, that of the 1,500,000 persons
who were transferred by the Soviet authorities from eastern
Polish cities to Siberia in the early months of the war, fifty-
five per cent were Jews These are the Polish Jews whom
the Soviet Government now considers Soviet citizens .
Most of them are still in Siberia, while others are in Uzbekis-
tan ... As to the future of Russia after the war, Mr. Dallin be-
lieves that it will not be Russia, but England and America
who will jointly dominate the world During the years
immediately after the war the huge navies of Britain and the
United States will rule the world seas, and their air power
will ensure their predominance on the continents, Mr. Dallin
predicts The prospect that the only real force will be com-
bined power of the two Anglo-Saxon countries spells great
danger for the foreign policy of the Soviet Government, the
author asserts Especiaiy so, since this policy conceives
of no greater menace to Russia than a domination of one
coalition of powers over the entire world .
out of the question.
ZIONIST AFFAIRS ....
A Zionist delegation may be received by President Roose-
velt early next month There are indications that Roosevelt
and Churchill conferred on the Palestine question during
their stay in Cairo ... The statement on U. S. policy with
regard to Palestine made by Assistant Secretary of State
Long before the House Committee in Washington came as a
disappointment to "Zionist leaders This statement, the
first of its kind, did not mention the Jews, the Balfour declara-
tion, the Jewish National Home ... It spoke of American in-
terest in Palestine's future from the viewpoint of the "larger
aspect of world security and world peace" ... In the light of
growing pro-Arab propaganda in Washington, conducted by
interested American individuals of influence, this statement
is certainly calculated to appease everybody but the Jews.
One must not take it for granted, however, that the pro-Arab
influence in higher circles in Washington remains unchal-
lenged ... Dr. Abba HQlel Silver, chairman of the American
Zionist Council, is today the busiest Jewish leader in the
country ... In fact, Jewish interests in Palestine have in Dr.
Silver the most active defender, whose influence in Wash-
ington is much greater than that of any other Zionist leader.
RELIEF REFLECTIONS ....
The Jewish Labor Committee has taken issue with the
State Department on the figures submitted by Mr. Long to the
House Foreign Affairs Committee in his report on the number
of Jewish refugees admitted to the United States during the
last ten years These figures are challenged in a memo-
randum which the Jewish Labor Committee submitted to the
State Department And speaking of refugees, it is inter-
esting to learn that the Council of Jewish Women is now com-
piling a gigantic master file of famUies disrupted by the war
and Nazi persecution This file is made up of scraps of
information from all corners of the world ... It will be of the
qreatest value during the post-war period, since it already
contains names of thousands of European Jews who today
are in concentration camps and labor battalions Ongin-
alv bequn when the Council undertook the task of locating
the relatives of Jewish families scattered by persecution
from their native villages, the file is expanding daily as fresh
reports come in from refugees in all parts of Asia, Africa and
the United States.

JEWISH SOLDIERS WILL
AID IN CHRISTMAS JOY
Hundreds of Jewish soldiers of
the Army Air Firces at Miami
Beach have volunteered to re-
place Christians on KP, guard
duty and other details Christmas
day.
The offers came after Chaplain
Hirsch E. L. Freud suggested in
a letter to men of the Hebrew
faith that their volunteering
would be a timely gesture of
"good will among men/'
The volunteers, it was pointed
out, will be sacrificing the only
recognized holiday in the army's
calendar in order to permit others
to observe Christmas.
Lt Irving Kirshner, 25, of Lin-
coln, 111., lost his life when the

ten that he was expecting to get
home by the end of August and
"have the time of my life." A

planning on writing and journal-
ism as a career.

SPECIAL E1ENTS TO
CLIMAX RACES OF
CHRISTMAS WEEK
The West Flagler Kennel club
will climax its Christmas week
of greyhound racing and the
sixth week of its current 86-
night meeting tonight and tomor-
row night with two special holi-
day evenings arraying topflight
programs.
Despite recent inclement weath-
er, West Flagler's steam-heated
plant, an ultra-modern racing
center conditioned for any kind
of weather, has continued to be
the scene of further record-
breaking in all departments. The
racing competition has earned
widespread praise which is up-
held by the large crowds and i
brisk wagering that this racing
attracts.
With the track's best racers in
all divisions matched for to-
night's and tomorrow's programs

schedule featuring New Year's
and Orange Bowl Week headlin-
ers. Early reservations indicate
that Messrs. Jacob Sher and Wm.
L. Huntley will be hosts each
night to the largest crowds ever
to attend the sport here during
the holiday season.

it presents its annual elimina-
tions and championship finals for
both the West Flagler Nursery
Stakes and the West Flagler Fu-
turity, two of the sport's out-
standing races nationally.
Post time for the 10 races each
night is 8 p. m., the daily double
being on the second and third
races. Quinielas are available on
every race and the nightly final
event, going to the post at 11:34
p. m.. is the breath-taking hur-
dle. West Flagler is the only dog
track in this area offering its
patrons this thrilling hurdle.

dance was held at the Y for all of
the Youth Groups. Then- were
various contests held during the
course of the evening, the feature
of the program being the square

ing as a physician, a codifier, and
philosopher and advanced the
philosophic aspects of Judaism.
Rabbi April is one of my fellow

"Mother Russia"
Professor Edward Clarke, Uni-

review the book entitled "Mother
Russia" on Wednesday evening,

the season by giving a book re-
view on the book "So Little
Time," on November 17th. The
author of "Mother Russia" is
Morris Hindus, and the subject
matter is timely. We have found
Professor Clarke's reviews most

CHANUKA OF 1776
By MARTIN SILVER
I call this a Chanuka story.
Maybe others might call it a
Christmas story. I guess it all
depends whether you are a Jew
or a Christian. The point isit
happened around Christmas time
which is always generally also
Chanuka time.
That's one fact I want to make
clear before starting. There is
anotherand that isthat this
u really not a story at all, if you
mean by a story fiction. It is
historical fact.
It was the year 1776. You know
that year is very much like our
own 1943as far as America was
concerned. The glorious year of
1776, we say, thinking of the De-
claration of Independence pro-
claiming all men are equal and
so on. But we forget it was also
a terribly black year. The ink

on the Declaration of Independ-
ence was still wet when Wash-
ington was retreating from one
position to another. He was re-
treating mostly from the Ger-
mans. Just as today, so many
foolish people say Nazis when
they should say Germans, so
then they said Hessians, when
they should have said Germans,
for it was not only from the pro-
vince of Hesse that these mercen-
ary soldiers came to fight against
the idea that all men are created
equal, but from many other pro-
vinces of Germany.
Washington had been driven
out of New York by these Ger-
man enemies of liberty and, go-
ing over to New York, was con-
tinuing his retreat. Thrown out
at Fort Lee, he was retreating as
December came on, near the vi-
cinity of Trenton.
The people of New Jersey
were flocking by the hundreds to
take advantage of the pardon
which General Howe had prom-
ised to those who repented and
swore allegiance to the British.
The American cause seemed to
be doomed. Only a half year had
passed since the signing of the

Christmas comes as an oasis of hope,

Declaration of Independence and
already General Howe thought it
was all over and gave Cornwallis
permission to return to England.
Howe was thinking himself of
shortly following.
Yes, that deal with the Ger-
mans was a bargain. They had
only to appear in a place and the i
Americans ran away. They car-!
ried with them the reputation of
invincibility. With that reputa-
tion, it is hard to fight them.
They win almost before they
fight.
Besides the reputation, they had
those big black mustachios. That
was the one difference between
the Germans of 1776 and Mr. Hit-
ler. You know he has a little!
sawed-off mustache. It wouldn't
do for him to have a big mus-
tache, since Hitler is mostly lip,
and he must not hide that. But
the invading German enemies of
liberty in 1776 all wore those big
black terrifying sort of mustach-
ios. It was said, they blacked
them every morning with shoe
polish.
Like it or notthere were
the Germans and the Americans
who were very much perturbed
about them. There were English-
men to be fought too but the
Americans were not so much
troubled by the English. The
Americans had met them at
Bunker Hill and inflicted terri-
ble damages on them. General
Howe had learned to respect
American valor.
But these arrogant uncouth
Germans seemed something dif-
ferent. Everyone spoke of their
invincibility. Everyone remind-
ed you that many of them were
veterans in the battles of Freder-
ick the Great.
Americans were a peace mind-
ed people. They had no discip-
lined army. Of scientific war-
fare they knew little. It was no
wonder that the people were wor-
ried. The army began to feel this
panic and desertion began on a
wholesale scale. Even Congress
in sessions at Philadelphia be-
came terrified and left the city.
Thomas Paine who had done
so much to whip up the feeling for
independence sat himself down
to write. He used the top of a
drum for his desk and what he
wrote seemed like a drum call.
He appealed to the people to have
faith. He reminded them that
panic sometimes seizes every na-
tion, that England had trembled
many times. He decried the "sum-
mer soldier," those who are will-
ing to serve when everything
seems hunkydory but who desert
when things are not so well.
Washington had Paine's Crisis
read before the soldiers and it
stopped the desertions and the
spirit of the people too was in-
vigorated.
Yet there were still the Ger-
mans! Paine had but given the
Americans a tonic.
But unless a decisive victory
over the Germans was brought
about soon some way, the effects
would wear offand the depres-
sion would become chronic and
that would mean that the Ameri-
cans would have to give up the
fight.
It is now or never, Washington
said. Either a victory now over
the ermans or the jig was up!
Across the Delaware lay some
1200 Germans led by Col. Rail,
one of those arrogant Germans
so cocksure and contemptuous of
the Americans that he would not
even build entrenchments to pro-
tect his men against the Ameri-
cans.
"They must be our target. We
must wipe them out or give up
the ghost," said Washington.
Washington laid his plans for
a Victory or Death battle. Every-
thing was prepared except the
time for it. And it is here, that
the Jewish angle enters.
There was a young Jew in the
late thirties, who used to be some-
times used by the American for-
ces in dealing with the Germans,
for this young Jew came from
Silesia and knew the German
language.
One day, this young Jew came
driving into the American camp.

A CHANUKA SHORT STORY
By DAVID C. GROSS
Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Inc.
The Jerusalcm-to-Tel Aviv ex-
press was hot and sweaty. You
couldn't open the windows, eith-
er, or a tornado of dust would
envelop you in three seconds
flat. Due to the merciless heat
or a spirit of informality which
seemed to possess every passen-
ger, or perhaps because of both
reasons, you couldn't find a man
wearing :i jacket or a woman
who didn't strike up a conversa-
tion with you and talk as if you
had known each other some twen-
ty years.
Maybe it was just the way Pal-
estine it. that's all. Or maybe it's
on account of that nighl was
Chanuka and everybody, friend
and stranger alike, couldn't help
feeling and acting neighborly.
Anywaythere I was. minding
my own business, looking out the

again.
"Shalom, chayal, Nu ma ata

she rattled off. M help me I
laughed kind of fatherly and took
hold of her hand. I patted it af-
fectionately. (Yeah. yeah. I'm
a fast worker, I know.) Slowly.
I tell her the awful truth. I
speak no Hebrew, write no He-
i hirw, and read it very poorly. In
; Hebrew school I was all the way
down at the bottom of the class
I'm an American soldier, I tell
her gently, stationed at Cairo.

like to know her pretty well.
But how? If only I'd done my
homework from Cheder!
The conductor passes through,
and I hail him. "Say. tell me. dt>
you speak English'" He answers
in the affirmative. So I ask him
to tell the young lady sitting at
my side, who is a native and
speaks only Hebrew, that I would
like verv much to take her home
when we reach Tel Aviv, and
then take her out to a movie or
something.
I notice that a little color
climbs Into thi' fellow's cheeks.
He turns to my neighbor and be-
gins rattling In the native tongue.
He talk- earnestly with her, and
she gives it right hack to him se-
riously and heavily, and it takes
about fifteen minutes. Why, you
might thmk I was asking him for
her hand in marriage. Anyway
I still have her hand in mine.
"She says," the conductor con-
fides, "that you are a very pecul-
iar young man who is lost m this
country, and she is taking von to
'her home where her fath r, a phy-
sician, will examine you and see
what's wrong with you. sin

A little mot lor i omes
into her cheeks. She puts her
hand back into mine. She has
that inexplicable look on her face
I don't know what gives. So I
slump down and don't open my
yap till we reach the station.
Meanwhile I been thinking.
Sure, sure, the girl's a knockout,
and I'd like an awful lot to take
her out, butif she thinks she s
going to treat me like a guy with
., loose boltoh, no! Not that.
We're still holding hands on
the platform. I put my bag down,
and say gently, like I used to talk
to some of the belles in my home
town, "Well, it's been nice meet-
ing you. But now I've got to, go.
So, he good, honey. Shalom!" At
leait I knew that much.
I turn my back OH her and I
start to walk off. regretfully.
And then I hear someone calling:
Hey. soldier, can't you take a
joke Come back here." I look
and see. It's she, her. oh. what's

talking about. I hop-skip back.
"Did you say that?" 1 ask.

PAGE ELEVEN
PEARL HARBOR ANNIVERSARY AND
(Page from the Diary of a Jewish Soldier)
By DAVU) ZAGIER
Anniversary of Pearl Harbor,
but the U. S. Army in wartime is
a deadly serious institution,
neither taking out thousand year
mortgages on history, nor given
to observing occasions. A little
touch of grimness in the faces
perhaps, a suspicion of extra
punch in the counting of cadence
maybe, and a brief reference in
the chapel sermon, but no more.
Altogether the hallmark of the
work here, even in the Fourteenth
Armored Division up the hill, is
not vicious hate, but a pecuiar
brand of American detached ness.
They seem to be preparing to
kill Germans not in an Intense
but in an efficient sort of way.
The mass production trait.

The guy from Albany, New
York, does not like one solitary
thing about this Army. He griped
even before the buck-too. hod
blonde at the USO party tonight.
He was sloppy, shifty, with the
profile of a' saloon anarchist of
forty years ago, and his words
came in a lazy, turgid stream.
The chow, he said, was rotten;
the shoes did not fit and that's
why he did not shine them; and
he did not want to live any long-
er. It took a long while before
I realized that that was his pe-
culiar way of courting, like some
animal whose name 1 forget, by
smell. When she finally gave
him the cold shoulder, the Schop-
penhauerian trooper turned his
attack against the USO victuals.
I saw him stuff his pockets full
of chocolate layer cake and was
convinced that he was not going
to commit suicide after all. We
have them of this kind, too, but
not many.

Snoring may have caused more
cases of AWOL than the prospect
of an eight-day problem or the
irresistible charms of girl friends.

cell in the guardhouse, I might
have gone over the hill myself,
for barracks number 1945 has far
more than its fair quota of snor-
ers.
Like field artillery, snoring has
its variations in caliber, eleva-
tion, range of effectiveness and
power of repercussion. The com-
parison may be flogged a touch
further, in that both in artillery
and in snoring, none of the above
is necessarily dependent on the
noise or the size of the piece. We
have big fellows who snore so
softly, you could hardly hear
them five beds away, and we
have little men who keep the non-
coms awake nights in their pri-
vate rooms. Some loud snorers
have less penetration, while some
low-pitched whining ones get to
the very marrow. In the case
of Private Kurt G., he is the own-
er of a style that has ravaging
effects because of its irregular
meter, the element of psycholog-
ical surprise, so as to say. Num-
ber 145 calls him Beg Birtha,
meaning that he is tremendous
and sporadic. My luck landed
me between Diego, a tiny fat
Mexican who snores like a pre-
historic mammoth, and a Prague
refugee who doubles for the
ram's horn in his slumbers and
whose name is Werther Weiner.
Defense measures against
Werther were easy to come by,
for he is a good friend of mine
and generally meek. Whenever
it gets really bad, I wake him.
While he is awake, I fall asleep.
With Diego it was more prob-
lematic. Diego is showing Latin
temper, although he has a rotund,
angelic face and smiles most of
the day, and I don't care to cross
him. Trusting to the angel that
must be somewhere in him, I re-
verted to stratagem. I made it a
goint every morning to report to
'iego that the snorers are caus-
ing me tortures of the soulnot
he, Diego, mind you, but the
snorers, in plural. My cunning
bore fruit, but instead of being
sweet, it is embarrassing.
Early today, I had occasion to
rise for a four o'clock detail and
found Diego's bunk empty. Down-
stairs, in the latrine, poor Jaime
Diego was sound asleep on the
seat, fully dressed from fatigue
cap to leggings and snoring free-
ly. The boys say that he had
been doing it for three nights
now, just to give us a chance to
get some sleep!
Another semi-permanent latrine
deni/.en is Tani, the Maltese, but
he keeps himself enthroned for
the purpose of reading his hymnal
and telling his beads. I used to
condemn his misplaced piousness,
but in view of the lesson I learned
in the case of Diego. I am in-
clined to reserve further judg-
ments. The njl rp.,2; some (if
these foreign m1.ulK.is unfath-

hours of normal kitchen work,
not nineteen of hard labor. And
they call you in alphabetical or-
der instead of catching you like
a stray dog in company area.
The K. P. pusher does not repeat
"On the double" every four and
half seconds, like a delirious par-
rot, but pitches in, so he could
get off early and write memor-
andums to his bride in Delancey
Street. His name is Winterman,
bless him. But it is still K. P.
At four o'clock, I was just set-
tling down to my second sack of
spuds, a messenger called me to
the orderly room. Headquarters
I suspect the PROwanted to
know whether I'd represent the
enlisted men at tonight's bond
rally in Fort Smith and make a
radio speech. I said, yes but I
am on K. P. They said, yes they
know they can get me off. And
I said all right.
The name of the station to
which I was transferred directly
from K. P. was K. F. P.
My fears that the fellows would
visit punishment on me because
of this spot of apple-polishing
was unjustified. They fed me on
ice cream and wined me on cokes
to celebrate my return from Fort
Smith famous, until I could take
no more. But while I was gorg-
ing myself on the fare of the
P. X., I missed chapel and the
gift packages, which Chaplain
Seligson distributed the same
evening on behalf of the Chanuka
comn ittee of the Kansas City
Jewish women of the USO.
My Jewish buddies flaunted
their "Cnanuka-money" before
me. Men like Louis Holz, who
wins or loses ten dollars in black-
jack with equal amusement, or
like Farbman, the Galician oil-
man, who still carries on a big
l usiness through his lawyers in
Houston, showed off the gifts of
tooth paste and candy like excit-
ed children. Even our atheist
went to chapel on this occasion.
Few of US, foreigners, get any-
thing from home, because few of
us have homes, but we like to re-
ceive packages no less than the
boy from Kalamazoo or Willow
Springs.

IT HAPPENED LUST WEEK
By MILTON BROWN
Copyright. 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc.
The State Department came out
in the open this week on sub-
jects of Jewish interest. The oc-
casion was the appearance of Mr.
Breckenridge Long before the
House Committee on Foreign Af-
fairs.
It does not appear that Mr.
Long's remarks created any in-
creased good will for his depart-
ment. In the first place. Mr.
Long's statement about the num-
ber of Jewish refugees who were
given asylum in America was er-
roneous and leading Jews were
quick to point to the error. Sec-
ondly Mr. Long's statement about
the attitude of the State Depart-
men on the question of Palestine
was scarcely satisfactory.
Said Mr. Long: "The American
Government is not entirely ob-
tuse about Palestine or is disin-
terested in the situation that is
developing there. We have been
interested and we will continue to
be interested from the point of
view of larger aspects of world
security and world peace, as well
as the rights of humans and hu-
manitarian sympathies and the
religious sentiments involved."
Now this statement may ap-
pear to Mr. Long to be satisfying.
To the Jews it sounds a little bit
as though our State Department
dwells on Mt. Olympusnot
down on earth. It seems as
though the Department were try-
ing to shelter itself behind a
barricade of words. It seems to
shrink at the thought of mention-
ing the Jews in connection with
Palestine.
From Palestine, came word that
the five colonists of the Hulda
settlement have been found guil-
ty of illegal possession of arms.
The news of their conviction will
scarcely increase the good will
of Jewry toward Britain, but ap-
parently in this war, England is
not as interested in enlisting Jew-
ish good will as it was in the first
World War.
Irrespective of this angle, it is
difficult to understand the Brit-
ish action. Hulda is a cooper-
ative colony. Anyone who has
ever been in a Palestine cooper-
ative colony would know that the
members of such a colony are the
last people in the world looking
for fights with pistols and swords.
The members of these groups are
all idealists, men who have re-
nounced the pursuit of money
and things. They live by the
sweat of their b|pw and the little
that they earn trVv share equally.
If merr.bers of J ,ch groups pos-
sess arme, we m; be sure, they
need them. Twit ', the residents
of Hulda have seen their com-
munity subjected to Arab attack.
Hulda is located in a section de-
tached from the main stream of
Jewish communities in Palestine.
It is. therefore, very vulnerable.
The second time there was an
attack on Hulda, 17 of its mem-
bers were killed.
How can anyone in the face of
such facts feel that the resident!
of Hulda are not justified in pos-
sessing arms for self-defense?
If anyone should be tried in
this matter, it seetni to us. it is
the British administration in Pal-
estine, which is fundamentally
responsible for the insecurity
which it makes necessary for the
Jews to feel that they nipst pos-
sess arms for self-defense.
In London this week there was
revived the old talk of partition
las a solution for the Palestine
problem. A series of articles on
Palestine appeared in the London
Times and they were construed as
preparing public opinion for the
thought of partition.
Zionist leaders continue to op-
pose the plan, however, asserting
that no large Jewish immigration
would be possible under such a
scheme. It is probable that the
Arabs would like it as little.
The report that Prime Minister
Churchill before leaving for the
great conference in the Middle
East conferred in London with
Dr. Wcizmann was confirmed this
week. It appears that General
Smuts who is now in London had
something to do with arranging
the conference. Smuts is a dyed
in the wool Zionist. If Weizmann
had only Smuts to deal with, his
problems would be soon over.

He bore a letter of introduction
from Robert Morris, the superin-
ii ii can cause. He asked to see a
member of the staff of Washing-
ton.
The conference between the
young Jew and Washington's
aide was soon arranged.
The Jewish visitor made the
purpose of his errand known at
once.
"I want to suggest that the
forthcoming attack, of Washing-
ton on the Germans take place on
Christmas night," he said.
The Colonel laughed. "Why
should you. a Jew, suggest Christ-
mas night for the battle. Ah, a
Jewish conspiracy against Christ-
mas. I vow.'
"No." said the young Jew. "I
respect all sincere religions and
so I respect Christmas and none
more 'peace on earth and good
will to men' than the Jew. But
I am an American and I want to
MS the Germans defeated and I
don't mind saying it, I know my
Germans. Theyll be drinking
themselves senseless that night.
It is the one night on which they
will not expect a battle and. as
everyone knows, surprise is one
of the great secrets of military
victory'"
"By Jove." said the colonel,
"that's an idea. I'll speak with
the General about this.'
Well the attack on the Ger-
mans at Trenton took place on
Christmas night. It was also the
week of Chanuka and wa ton as a result was on.wi .n-

PEARL HARBOR ANNIVERSARY AND
(Page from the Diary of a Jewish Soldier)
By DAVID ZAGIER
Anniversary of Pearl Harbor,
but the U. S. Army in wartime is
a deadly serious institution,
neither taking out thousand year
mortgages on history, nor given
to observing occasions. A little
touch of grimness in the faces
perhaps, a suspicion of extra
punch in the counting of cadence
maybe, and a brief reference in
the chapel sermon, but no more.
Altogether the hallmark of the
work here, even in the Fourteenth
Armored Division up the hill, is
not vicious hate, but a pecuiar
brand of American detachedness.
They seem to be preparing to
kill Germans not in an intense
but in an efficient sort of way.
The mass production trait.
*
The guy from Albany, New
York, does not like one solitary
thing about this Army. He griped
even before the buck-too'.hed
blonde at the USO party tonight.
He was sloppy, shifty, with the
profile of a' saloon anarchist of
forty years ago, and his words
came in a lazy, turgid stream.
The chow, he said, was rotten;
the shoes did not fit and that's
why he did not shine them; and
he did not want to live any long-
er. It took a long while before
I realized that that was his pe-
culiar way of courting, like some
animal whose name I forget, by
smell. When she finally gave
him the cold shoulder, the Schop-
penhauerian trooper turned his
attack against the USO victuals.
I saw him stuff his pockets full
of chocolate layer cake and was
convinced that he was not going
to commit suicide after all. We
have them of this kind, too, but
not many.

Snoring may have caused more
cases of AWOI. than the prospect
of an eight-day problem or the
irresistible charms of girl friends.

cell in the guardhouse, I might
have gone over the hill myself,
for barracks number 1945 has far
more than its fair quota of snor-
ers.
Like field artillery, snoring has
its variations in caliber, eleva-
tion, range of effectiveness and
power of repercussion. The com-
parison may be flogged a touch
further, in that both in artillery
and in snoring, none of the above
is necessarily dependent on the
noise or the size of the piece. We
have big fellows who snore so
softly, you could hardly hear
them five beds away, and we
have little men who keep the non-
coms awake nights in their pri-
vate rooms. Some loud snorers
have less penetration, while some
low-pitched whining ones get to
the very marrow. In the case
of Private Kurt G., he is the own-
er of a style that has ravaging
effects because of its irregular
meter, the element of psycholog-
ical surprise, so as to say. Num-
ber 145 calls him Beg Birtha,
meaning that he is tremendous
and sporadic. My luck landed
me between Diego, a tiny fat
Mexican who snores like a pre-
historic mammoth, and a Prague
refugee who doubles for the
ram's horn in his slumbers and
whose name is Werther Weincr.
Defense measures against
Werther were easy to come by,
for he is a good Wend of mine
and generally meek. Whenever

it gets really bad, I wake him.
While he is awake, I fall asleep.
With Diego it was more prob-
lematic. Diego is showing Latin
temper, although he has a rotund,
angelic face and smiles most of
the day, and I don't care to cross
him. Trusting to the angel that
must be somewhere in him, I re-
verted to stratagem. I made it a
Eoint every morning to report to
iego that the snorers are caus-
ing me tortures of the soulnot
he, Diego, mind you, but the
snorers, in plural. My cunning
bore fruit, but instead of being
sweet, it is embarrassing.
Early today, I had occasion to
rise for a four o'clock detail and
found Diego's bunk empty. Down-
stairs, in the latrine, poor Jaime
Diego was sound asleep on the
seat, fully dressed from fatigue
cap to leggings and snoring free-
ly. The boys say that he had
been doing it for three nights
now, just to give us a chance to
get some sleep!
Another semi-permanent latrine
denizen is Tani, the Maltese, but
he keeps himself enthroned for
the purpose of reading his hymnal
and telling his beads. I_ used to
condemn his misplaced piousness,
but in view of the lesson I learned
in the case of Diego. I am in-
clined to reserve farther judg-
ments. The n-Jiuv of some of
these foreign -Jlvates is unfath-

hours of normal kitchen work,
not nineteen of hard labor. And
they call you in alphabetical or-
der instead of catching you like
a stray dog in company area.
The K. P. pusher does not repeat
"On the double" every four and
half seconds, like a delirious par-
rot, but pitches in, so he could
get off early and write memor-
andums to his bride in Delancey
Street. His name is Winterman,
bless him. But it is still K. P.
At four o'clock, I was just set-
tling down to my second sack of
spuds, a messenger called me to
the orderly room. Headquarters
I suspect the PROwanted to
know whether I'd represent the
enlisted men at tonight's bond
rally in Fort Smith and make a
radio speech. I said, yes but I
am on K. P. They said, yes they
know they can get me off. And
I said all right.
The name of the station to
which I was transferred directly
from K. P. was K. F. P.
My fears that the fellows would
visit punishment on me because
of this spot of apple-polishing
was unjustified. They fed me on
ice cream and wined me on cokes
to celebrate my return from Fort
Smith famous, until I could take
mi more. But while I was gorg-
| ing myself on the fare of the
I P. X.. I missed chapel and the
j gift packages, which Chaplain
Seligson distributed the same
evening on behalf of the Chanuka
comn itti e of the Kansas City
Jewish women of the USO.
My Jewish buddies flaunted
i heir "Chanuka-money" before
me. Men like Louis Holz, who
w ins or loses ten dollars in black-
jack with equal amusement, or
like Farbman, the Galician oil-
man, who still carries on a big
business through his lawyers in
Houston, showed off the gifts of
tooth paste and candy like excit-
ed children. Even our atheist
wont to chapel on this occasion.
Few of u.s. foreigners, get any-
thing from home, because few of
US have honns. but we like to re-
ceive packages no less than the
boy from Kalamazoo or Willow

The Jerusalem-to-Tel Aviv express was hot and sweaty. You couldn't open the windows, either, or a tornado of dust would envelop you in three seconds flat. Due to the merciless heat or a spirit of informality which seemed to possess every passenger, or perhaps because of both reasons, you couldn't find a man wearing a jacket or a woman who didn't strike up a conversation with you and talk as if you had known each other some twenty years. Maybe it was just the way Palestine it. that's all. Or maybe it's on account of that night was Chanuka and everybody, friend and stranger alike, couldn't help feeling and acting neighborly. Anyway—there I was, minding n 1 own business, looking out the window and taking in some scenery. I suppose I didn't mind the he.,t too much !>• cause after rte and Tunis you kind ol ised to such inconveniences (Bl dl I'm from Atlanta and 1 never did learn how to feel cool I A I was saying, there 1 was. ling to the eager bi1 and not understanding a word.

The conductor passes through, and I hail him. "Say. tell me. do you speak English?" He answers in the affirmative. So I ask him to tell the young lady sitting at my side, who is a native and speaks only Hebrew, that I would like vcrv much to take her home when we reach Tel Aviv, and then take; her out to a movie or something. I notice that a little color climbs into the fellow's cheeks He turns to my neighbor and begins rattling in the native tongue. He talks earnestly with her. and she gives it nnht hack to hnn seriously and heavily, and it takes about" fifteen minutes. Why, you might think I was asking him for her hand in marriage. Anyway I still have her hand in mine. "She says," the conductor confides, "that you are a very peculiar young man who is lost m this country, and she is taking you to her home where her father, a physician, will examine you and i e what's wrong With you.

JEWISH SOLDIERS WILL AID IN CHRISTMAS JOY Hundreds of Jewish soldiers of the Army Air Firces at Miami Beach have volunteered to replace Christians on KP, guard duty and other details Christmas day. The offers came after Chaplain Hirsch E. L. Freud suggested in a letter to men of the Hebrew faith that their volunteering would be a timely gesture of "good will among men/' The volunteers, it was pointed out, will be sacrificing the only recognized holiday in the army's calendar in order to permit others to observe Christmas. Lt Irving Kirshner, 25, of Lincoln, 111., lost his life when the Fort he was serving on as bombardier in the North African area was brought down by enemy anti-aircraft fire.

FRIDAY. DECEMBER 24. 1943 +Jewish fhrMian PAGE ELEVEN PEARL HARBOR ANNIVERSARY AND (Page from the Diary of a Jewish Soldier) By DAVID ZAGIER Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, but the U. S. Army in wartime is a deadly serious institution, neither taking out thousand year mortgages on history, nor given to observing occasions. A little touch of grimness in the faces perhaps, a suspicion of extra punch in the counting of cadence maybe, and a brief reference in the chapel sermon, but no more. Altogether the hallmark of the work here, even in the Fourteenth Armored Division up the hill, is not vicious hate, but a pecuiar brand of American detachedness. They seem to be preparing to kill Germans not in an intense but in an efficient sort of way. The mass production trait. • The guy from Albany, New York, does not like one solitary thing about this Army. He griped even before the buck-too'.hed blonde at the USO party tonight. He was sloppy, shifty, with the profile of a' saloon anarchist of forty years ago, and his words came in a lazy, turgid stream. The chow, he said, was rotten; the shoes did not fit and that's why he did not shine them; and he did not want to live any longer. It took a long while before I realized that that was his peculiar way of courting, like some animal whose name I forget, by smell. When she finally gave him the cold shoulder, the Schoppenhauerian trooper turned his attack against the USO victuals. I saw him stuff his pockets full of chocolate layer cake and was convinced that he was not going to commit suicide after all. We have them of this kind, too, but not many. • • Snoring may have caused more cases of AWOI. than the prospect of an eight-day problem or the irresistible charms of girl friends.

E. 1st Ave. Phone 9-1505 cell in the guardhouse, I might have gone over the hill myself, for barracks number 1945 has far more than its fair quota of snorers. Like field artillery, snoring has its variations in caliber, elevation, range of effectiveness and power of repercussion. The comparison may be flogged a touch further, in that both in artillery and in snoring, none of the above is necessarily dependent on the noise or the size of the piece. We have big fellows who snore so softly, you could hardly hear them five beds away, and we have little men who keep the noncoms awake nights in their private rooms. Some loud snorers have less penetration, while some low-pitched whining ones get to the very marrow. In the case of Private Kurt G., he is the owner of a style that has ravaging effects because of its irregular meter, the element of psychological surprise, so as to say. Number 145 calls him Beg Birtha, meaning that he is tremendous and sporadic. My luck landed me between Diego, a tiny fat Mexican who snores like a prehistoric mammoth, and a Prague refugee who doubles for the ram's horn in his slumbers and whose name is Werther Weincr.

Diego is showing Latin temper, although he has a rotund, angelic face and smiles most of the day, and I don't care to cross him. Trusting to the angel that must be somewhere in him, I reverted to stratagem. I made it a Eoint every morning to report to iego that the snorers are causing me tortures of the soul—not he, Diego, mind you, but the snorers, in plural. My cunning bore fruit, but instead of being sweet, it is embarrassing. Early today, I had occasion to rise for a four o'clock detail and found Diego's bunk empty. Downstairs, in the latrine, poor Jaime Diego was sound asleep on the seat, fully dressed from fatigue cap to leggings and snoring freely. The boys say that he had been doing it for three nights now, just to give us a chance to get some sleep! Another semi-permanent latrine denizen is Tani, the Maltese, but he keeps himself enthroned for the purpose of reading his hymnal and telling his beads. I_ used to condemn his misplaced piousness, but in view of the lesson I learned in the case of Diego. I am inclined to reserve farther judgments.

PAGE TWELVE' +Jew 1st) FkrkUari FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2 4 l943 I m IT HAPPENED LUST WEEK By MILTON BROWN Copyright. 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc. The State Department came out in the open this week on subjects of Jewish interest. The occasion was the appearance of Mr. Breckenridge Long before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. It does not appear that Mr. Long's remarks created any increased good will for his department. In the first place. Mr. Long's statement about the number of Jewish refugees who were given asylum in America was erroneous and leading Jews were quick to point to the error. Secondly Mr. Long's statement about the attitude of the State Departmen on the question of Palestine was scarcely satisfactory. Said Mr. Long: "The American Government is not entirely obtuse about Palestine or is disinterested in the situation that is developing there. We have been interested and we will continue to be interested from the point of view of larger aspects of world security and world peace, as well as the rights of humans and humanitarian sympathies and the religious sentiments involved." Now this statement may appear to Mr. Long to be satisfying. To the Jews it sounds a little bit as though our State Department dwells on Mt. Olympus—not down on earth. It seems as though the Department were trying to shelter itself behind a barricade of words. It seems to shrink at the thought of mentioning the Jews in connection with Palestine. From Palestine, came word that the five colonists of the Hulda settlement have been found guilty of illegal possession of arms. The news of their conviction will scarcely increase the good will of Jewry toward Britain, but apparently in this war, England is not as interested in enlisting Jewish good will as it was in the first World War. Irrespective of this angle, it is difficult to understand the British action. Hulda is a cooperative colony. Anyone who has ever been in a Palestine cooperative colony would know that the members of such a colony are the last people in the world looking for fights with pistols and swords. The members of these groups are all idealists, men who have renounced the pursuit of money and things. They live by the sweat of their b|pw and the little that they earn trVv share equally. If merr.bers of J ,ch groups possess arme, we m; • be sure, they need them. Twit %  the residents of Hulda have seen their community subjected to Arab attack. Hulda is located in a section detached from the main stream of Jewish communities in Palestine. It is. therefore, very vulnerable. The second time there was an attack on Hulda, 17 of its members were killed. How can anyone in the face of such facts feel that the resident! of Hulda are not justified in possessing arms for self-defense? If anyone should be tried in this matter, it seetni to us. it is the British administration in Palestine, which is fundamentally responsible for the insecurity which it makes necessary for the Jews to feel that they nipst possess arms for self-defense. In London this week there was revived the old talk of partition las a solution for the Palestine problem. A series of articles on Palestine appeared in the London Times and they were construed as preparing public opinion for the thought of partition. Zionist leaders continue to oppose the plan, however, asserting that no large Jewish immigration would be possible under such a scheme. It is probable that the Arabs would like it as little. The report that Prime Minister Churchill before leaving for the great conference in the Middle East conferred in London with Dr. Wcizmann was confirmed this week. It appears that General Smuts who is now in London had something to do with arranging the conference. Smuts is a dyed in the wool Zionist. If Weizmann had only Smuts to deal with, his problems would be soon over. Chanuka Gifts—War Bonds.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1943 Jew 1st fieridUmn PAGE NINE CHANUKA OF 1776 By MARTIN SILVER I call this a Chanuka story. Maybe others might call it a Christmas story. I guess it all depends whether you are a Jew or a Christian. The point is—it happened around Christmas time which is always generally also Chanuka time. That's one fact I want to make clear before starting. There is another—and that is—that this u really not a story at all, if you mean by a story fiction. It is historical fact. It was the year 1776. You know that year is very much like our own 1943—as far as America was concerned. The glorious year of 1776, we say, thinking of the Declaration of Independence proclaiming all men are equal and so on. But we forget it was also a terribly black year. The ink CHANUKA GREETINGS SUNLIGHT BEAUTY SCHOOL 1011 N. W. Second Avenue PHONE 2-9996 on the Declaration of Independence was still wet when Washington was retreating from one position to another. He was retreating mostly from the Germans. Just as today, so many foolish people say Nazis when they should say Germans, so then they said Hessians, when they should have said Germans, for it was not only from the province of Hesse that these mercenary soldiers came to fight against the idea that all men are created equal, but from many other provinces of Germany. Washington had been driven out of New York by these German enemies of liberty and, going over to New York, was continuing his retreat. Thrown out at Fort Lee, he was retreating as December came on, near the vicinity of Trenton. The people of New Jersey were flocking by the hundreds to take advantage of the pardon which General Howe had promised to those who repented and swore allegiance to the British. The American cause seemed to be doomed. Only a half year had passed since the signing of the BEST WISHES FOR A HAPPY CHANUKA TO OUR MANY FRIENDS MINNA LEE IMPORTERS, Inc. 603 Lincoln Road Miami Beach FOR WHOM THESE HELMETS TOLLCHRISTMAS —the season of joy, of giving, of brotherly love — is even more vital in this world of blood and strife where the clang of steel on helmets drowns out the soft pealing of Christmas bells and the torch of destruction seems to outshine the gleam of the candle of mercy and the Star of Peace. Christmas comes as an oasis of hope, .and in its eternal message we see the promise of a better world, freed from hate and greed, purged of arrogance and cruelty 1... a world in which "Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men" will no longer be a mockery but will be the cornerstone of daily living. And in all due reverence, Thank God (or Christmas, 1943. flOBin ro (•vr rouMW •tin FOR VICTORY BUY WAR BONDS ********* Declaration of Independence and already General Howe thought it was all over and gave Cornwallis permission to return to England. Howe was thinking himself of shortly following. Yes, that deal with the Germans was a bargain. They had only to appear in a place and the i Americans ran away. They car-! ried with them the reputation of invincibility. With that reputation, it is hard to fight them. They win almost before they fight. Besides the reputation, they had those big black mustachios. That was the one difference between the Germans of 1776 and Mr. Hitler. You know he has a little! sawed-off mustache. It wouldn't do for him to have a big mustache, since Hitler is mostly lip, and he must not hide that. But the invading German enemies of liberty in 1776 all wore those big black terrifying sort of mustachios. It was said, they blacked them every morning with shoe polish. Like it or not—there were the Germans and the Americans who were very much perturbed about them. There were Englishmen to be fought too but the Americans were not so much troubled by the English. The Americans had met them at Bunker Hill and inflicted terrible damages on them. General Howe had learned to respect American valor. But these arrogant uncouth Germans seemed something different. Everyone spoke of their invincibility. Everyone reminded you that many of them were veterans in the battles of Frederick the Great. Americans were a peace minded people. They had no disciplined army. Of scientific warfare they knew little. It was no wonder that the people were worried. The army began to feel this panic and desertion began on a wholesale scale. Even Congress in sessions at Philadelphia became terrified and left the city. Thomas Paine who had done so much to whip up the feeling for independence sat himself down to write. He used the top of a drum for his desk and what he wrote seemed like a drum call. He appealed to the people to have faith. He reminded them that panic sometimes seizes every nation, that England had trembled many times. He decried the "summer soldier," those who are willing to serve when everything seems hunkydory but who desert when things are not so well. Washington had Paine's Crisis read before the soldiers and it stopped the desertions and the spirit of the people too was invigorated. Yet there were still the Germans! Paine had but given the Americans a tonic. But unless a decisive victory over the Germans was brought about soon some way, the effects would wear off—and the depression would become chronic and that would mean that the Americans would have to give up the fight. It is now or never, Washington said. Either a victory now over the ermans or the jig was up! Across the Delaware lay some 1200 Germans led by Col. Rail, one of those arrogant Germans so cocksure and contemptuous of the Americans that he would not even build entrenchments to protect his men against the Americans. "They must be our target. We must wipe them out or give up the ghost," said Washington. Washington laid his plans for a Victory or Death battle. Everything was prepared except the time for it. And it is here, that the Jewish angle enters. There was a young Jew in the late thirties, who used to be sometimes used by the American forces in dealing with the Germans, for this young Jew came from Silesia and knew the German language. One day, this young Jew came driving into the American camp. (Continued on Page 12) Beat Wihe§ to Our Many Jtwith Friend* and Patrons SCHRAGER'S SUNDRIES 309 N. Miami Ave., Miami, Fla.

Ramirez, was presented last week td the Argentine Minister of Interior Alberto ilbert by the DAIA, the central Jewish representative body in Buenos Aires, the New York Times reports. Signed by Dr. Moises Goldman. g resident of the DAIA, and by Dr. iavid Tabakman, secretary, the protest cited among other antiSemitic incidents that in the city of Salta, a Jewish theatrical company was assailed on two consecutive nights. The anti-Jewish propaganda, they said, led to such outrages and seriously alarmed the Jewish community in the country. Last Aug. 4 the Minister of the Interior publicly instructed the Federal Commissioners in all provinces to forbid publication by newspapers of anything that might "wound or mortify" any section of the Argentine population by attacks upon its "nationality of origin, religion, beliefs or customs." These instructions have remained a dead letter, the New York Times correspondent cables from Buenos Aires. Even in Bueno Aires nationalistic papers continue to heap abuse upon Jews. Indeed, whatever repressive measures have been applied have been taken against Jewish newspapers, not those that attack the Jews, the correspondent adds. All children of the Jewish Religious Schools of Greater Miami will meet on Chanuka, Sunday, December 26th. at 10:00 a. m. at the Tower Theatre. S. W 8th St. and ISth Ave. A Chanuka program has been arranged, under the auspices of the Rabbinical Association. Parents are urged to bring their children in their cars, attend the program, and wait to take them home. ,1 2 OF Mill BEACH William Kapell, master American pianist, will be the featured artist at a Chanuka concert sponsored by the Miami Beach ZionA list of participating agencies in Dade County's War Chest, published in The Jewish Floridian last week, omitted the name of the Jewish Welfare Bureau as one of the member agencies.

The Hungarian deputy characterized the anti-Jewish laws as a "disgrace for Hungary." "The soul of Hungary should be saved by having all the anti-Semitic laws repealed," he is quoted as having said. Liberal and Socialist members of the parliament are reported by the Nazi paper to have promised to support the resolution. Commenting upon the proJewish resolution, the Voelkischer Beobachter warns Hungary against taking any steps in favor of the Jews. "Such steps are bound to have serious consequences for the Hungarian people," the Nazi organ writes.

All members of the council, including Dr. Michael Weichert and David Hilfstein who headed the body, have been deoorted, the report reaching here from Poland says. The Cracow Jewish council was the last Jewish reoresentative body in occupied Poland. A Jew who succeeded in escaping from Poland told Jewish organizations here that the majority of the Jews still left in Poland are held in concen ration camps in the Lublin area. He estimated that hundreds of thousands of Jews were executed in the Sebibor camp which, he said, was constructed under the supervision of an engineer named Mos,r who is the head of the publicworks department in Cracow. Stockholm (JTA)—The report that a sub-committee of the Swed1 ish Parliament has drafted a law I which would outlaw the distribu| tion of racial propaganda has aroused opposition in some quar! ters here, although labor and lib! cral groups have expressed gratI ification. An article in the Stockholm i press says that the Goteborg city council voiced doubts concerning the advisability of the proposed legislation. The Goteborg legislators, according to the article, believe that some kind of law is necessary, but "question the advisability of introducing laws calculated to give special privileges to a strictly limited i section of the community." Similar sentiments were voiced re; cently by the Malme county %  council. The Commissioner of the Swedish State Police, Niles Swenson,has also expressed opposition to the proposed measure, stating that a law against dissemination of racial propaganda was desirable, but would lead to a "real racial and religious problem, especially as far as the Jews are concerned." Proponents of the legislation have declared that it is necessary as a means of checking the increased anti-Semitic activity here, led by the small but vociferous Swedish Nazi party. Anti-Jewish propaganda reached a new height with the arrival of thousands of Jews who fled German persecution in Denmark. Washington. (JTA)—The House Foreign Affairs Committee has temporarily suspended hearings on the Baldwin-Rogers resolution calling for the creation of a United States commission to rescue the Jewish people of occupied Europe, it was announced iiere this week. Chairman Sol Bloom of the Foreign Affairs Committee was chargedin the House ot Representatives with causing "unnecessary delay" on the Baldwin-Rogers bill. Congressman Andrew .. Somers, New York Democrat told the House that he deplored the fact that the resolution, introduced on November 9th. has not yet been reported to the House. Assistant Secretary of State Breckenridge Long was criticized by Congressman Samuel IJICKstein of New York for his testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee with regard to the admission of refugees to the United States. Speaking m the House of Representatives, Congressman Dickstem said that the testimony of Mr. Lor. significant not in what it stales, but in what it implies. Melbourne. Australia, (JTA)— Although it has in the past voiced its opposition to ati.iSemitism, the Australian Labor Party this week rejected a proposal that it endorse a resolution advocating that Jews, as such. be represented at the peace conference. The resolution had also demanded that the Labor Party. which is holding its triennial conference in Canberra, condemn the inhuman treatment of Jews and other oppressed peoples in Europe and voice its opposition to racial discrimination. An emergency meeting of the Ausra lian Zionist Federation has ,„.,.„ ca lled for this week to dis, cuss the Labor Party s action. 7HULDASETTLERS SENTENCED F1M TWO TO SIX YEARS HIAS APPEALS TO PRESIDENT TO SAVE EUROPEAN JEWS New York (JTA)-A resolution appealing to the U.

The seven settlers were sentenced to terms varying from two to six years in prison. Jacob Galata and Moshe Mass. the two settlers who pleaded guilty at the coining of the trial, announced through their lawyer that they did not intend to take advantage Of the offer made by the president of the court, that they would be given milder sentences if they agreed to disclose the source from which they secured the confiscated arms. "As selfrespecting men they would not be ray their conscience for their freedom." the attorney told the court before the sentences were U ed.

HENRY BEAMISH Johannesburg. South Africa (J • TA)—The release from internment in Rhodesia of Capt. Henry Beamish, veteran anti-Semite who has been active in anti-Jewish movements in Germany, South Africa, and other countries for 2 years, has aroused widespread resentment aamong South African Jews.

Addressing a session of the association, Leonard Montefiore, president of the Jewish Colonization, stated that the JCA is now an English company. LEAGUE OFFICIAL SAYS REFUGEE IS A London. (JTA)—Sir Herbert Emerson, League of Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, this week made public a report which he has submitted to the League, in which he emphasizes that the repatriation of refugees now in the Allied countries may prove to be "one of the least tractable of the many problems" which will follow the cessation of hostilities. Sir Herbert points out that few refugees will be inclined to return to their homeland unless given assurances that they wilL be unmolested there. Since, he adds, "compulsory repatriation seems out of the question, this is likely to prove the least tractable of many problems." The position of refugees after the war is also discussed in several articles appearing in the British press on the occasion of the first anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on Atrocities, which was issued on December 17, 1942. Eleanor Rathbone, Independent M. P. writing in the Manchester Guardian, says that many thousands of Jewish refugees cannot be expected to return to countries where their relatives have been murdered, their homes destroyed and antiSemitism deep-rooted.

II HOLIDAY FURLOUGH
A CHANUKA SHORT STORY
By DAVID C. GROSS
Copyright, 1943, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.
The Jerusalem-to-Tel Aviv ex-
press was hot and sweaty. You
couldn't open the windows, eith-
er, or a tornado of dust would
envelop you in three seconds
flat. Due to the merciless heat
or a spirit of informality which
seemed to possess every passen-
ger, or perhaps because of both
reasons, you couldn't find a man
wearing a jacket or a woman
who didn't strike up a conversa-
tion with you and talk as if you
had known each other some twen-
ty years.
Maybe it was just the way Pal-
estine it. that's all. Or maybe it's
on account of that night was
Chanuka and everybody, friend
and stranger alike, couldn't help
feeling and acting neighborly.
Anywaythere I was, minding
n 1 own business, looking out the
window and taking in some scen-
ery. I suppose I didn't mind

In

pose I grinned back. But I kept
looking at her. Honest, fellas
she was a honey.
"Hi," I say to her. and grin
again.
"Shalom, chayal. Nu ma ata
omer ha-aretz?" That's just what
she rattled off. so help me. I
laughed kind of fatherly and took
hold of her hand. I patted it af-
fectionately, (Yeah. yeah. I'm
a fast worker, I know.) Slowly,
1 tell her the awful truth. I
speak no Hebrew, write no He-
brew, and read it very poorly. In
Hebrew school I was all the way
down at the bottom of fhe class.
I'm an American soldier, I tell
her gently, stationed at Cairo.
(And don't call me a Yank. I>c-
I cause I'm from Atlanta. I re-
peat.) I'm on furlough and came
to visit Tel Aviv during Chanuka.
"Aval, ma ata omer al ha-

And for the life of me. I

For a while I just looked at her.

ily, and I think I'd
like to know her pretty well.
But how? If only I'd done my
homework from Cheder!
The conductor passes through,
and I hail him. "Say. tell me. do
you speak English?" He answers
in the affirmative. So I ask him
to tell the young lady sitting at
my side, who is a native and
speaks only Hebrew, that I would
like vcrv much to take her home
when we reach Tel Aviv, and
then take; her out to a movie or
something.
I notice that a little color
climbs into the fellow's cheeks
He turns to my neighbor and be-
gins rattling in the native tongue.
He talks earnestly with her. and
she gives it nnht hack to hnn se-
riously and heavily, and it takes
about" fifteen minutes. Why, you
might think I was asking him for
her hand in marriage. Anyway
I still have her hand in mine.
"She says," the conductor con-
fides, "that you are a very pecul-
iar young man who is lost m this
country, and she is taking you to
her home where her father, a phy-
sician, will examine you and i e
what's wrong With you. She says
that you're under her care. Be-

Box 2973 Phone 2-1141 Entered as Second Class Matter July 4, 1930 at the Post Office of Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 FRED K. SHOCHET, Managing Editor Subscription—1 Year, $2.00 Six Months, $1.00 MIAMI, FLORIDA. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1943 KISLEV 27. 5704 VOLUME 16 NUMBER 52 ZIONIST DISTRICT OF MIAMI BUCK -TIDBITS FROM EVERYW tftitctfy ecHtgidentiai -By PHINEAS J. BIROl THE PEOPLE SPEAK Agitation to effectuate the rescue of the Jews in Europe, to cause Britain to abrogate the White Paper closing immigration of Jews to Palestine and to pass legislation by our law-making bodies to outlaw anti-Semitism is gaining momentum daily. Congress is besieged with telegrams, mail and personal visits from individuals and representatives of organizations and committees, all pleading for action for their respective urgent causes. Organizations including Federation and welfare funds, civic, social, religious, Zionistic, throughout the country, each in their locality, are holding mass meetings and passing resolutions, evidencing the mass sentiment of sympathy for and support of these all important measures. Just as it appeared that the House Foreign Affairs Committee would submit a favorable report on the Baldwin-Rogers resolution caling for executive establishment of a special commission to save the Jews in Europe, a dissonant tone was thrown into the proceedings by the disclosures of the secret testimony of Breckinridge Long. Assistant Secretary of State. The gist of Mr. Long's testimony was that the Baldwin Rogers resolution, as framed by its proponents, was in conflict with a secret proposal adopted at the Bermuda conference and that the formation of the proposed commission would duplicate the work of the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees which, according to Mr. Long, has the plenary authority to take such isures as "may be necessary to preserve, maintain and transport displaced persons from areas where their lives and liberty are in danger on account of their race, religion, or political beliefs." We are not inclined to argue the issue with the State Depar: it :.: whose views Mr. Long represents. However, what the Intergovernmental Committee on Refuqees has been doing to i te the rescue o! in Europe is not yet known nor • • of the important resolutions passed at the recent en: Veterans called for the passage rT laws [ tolerance. The s cn d time has i our ; ires'< and evolve ociety," i l \ or a •he com v of the • :trated in ] .it years l • DCial lore? has come into being a I P IO P -g. smearing and innuendo 1 adequate protection and a serious threat to our society. Left un• force, >.as been so ably manipulated I Dr. C^oebbels from Berlin and his#atellites in our own country, can tear our country apart and create on this side of the Atlantic a balKamzation of the United States with all its attendant discords and civil wars. There was no such organized power and momentum at the time our Constitutional Fathers met. There was no such gravity in past years as there is now. To blink the existence of this new, corrosive and destructive force for national disintegration is to be blind to emerqent social phenomena. "Under such circumstances, a people resolved not to permit themselves to be destroyed must find the way to cope with this force Education has its place but educaUon is no more the complete answer to that problem than it is to any other problem Over and above our school system, we still have legislative chambers, courts, police departments, military forces In short we do not leave everything to the gradual, the painfully slow process of education. There is no more reason why we should leave this destructive power free and unopposed except bv the opposition of gradual enlightenment." Along this line is the Lynch Bill, now pending in the United States Congress, making it a misdemeanor to send through the mail any literature inciting hatred of any race, group or reliaious denomination. Zionists throughout are organizing emergency committees and their ranks are being increased by vast numbers with innumerable institutions affiliating. Individuals, Jews and non-Jews are organizing in Greater Miami and announcements will be soon forthcoming of their plans and activities, through which they will express the sentiments of the people of our community on these subjects. "God's help to us has been great in this year of march toward worldwide liberty. In brotherhood with warriors of other United Nations our gallant men have won victories, have freed our homes from fear, have made tyranny tremble and have laid the foundation for freedom of life in a world which wil be free President Franklin D.

FRIDAY. DECEMBER 24, 1943 vJewist fhrkUam PAGE THREE OUR FILM FOLK Those who believe that the German atrocities against the Jews should be vividly displayed to an apathetic world will have their wish partially satisfied in "None Shall Escape." The film, now completed, deals with a postwar tribunal in Poland. Flashbacks tell the story of the Jews, the burning of the Torahs, the driving of horses into synagogues. the box cars of human cargo, th^e slaughtering of thousands. This will be the first picture specifically mentioning Jews as Nazi victime. • • • From the daily "minute of Prayer" broadcasts over the Mutual networks, a pocket-size book has been published. This compilation by Protestant ministers. Catholic priests, and Jewish rabbis contains a prayer for every day in the year. All royalties from its sale go to the USO as personal donations from the authors. • • • The set was ready for a scene in "Hostages." It depicted the office of the Nazi commissioner of police in Prague. Idly fingering the row of leather-bound books behind the commissioner's desk, the director suddenly stopped pulled out two of the largest volumes. They were "Picturesque Palestine!" Hastily the se'.-dresser substituted literature more suited to the Goebbels' formula. Pfc. Al Jolson breezed into town this week, aflutter with campaign ribbons denoting service in the Caribbean, Pacific and North African war zones. He served on entertainment duty ten months received the rating and recognition from General George Marshall. Al was met by nine-year-old Sgt. Al Jolson, jr., who outranks his dad with a sergeancy at Blacke-Foxe Military Academy. • • Not content to rest on his laurels after providing a free hotel for service men, Phil Goldstone is planning a maternity hospital where medical services will be free to wives of service men. It will be a memorial to his mother. • • Life for German actors is a precarious business these days—a mouth-to-mouth existence. The merest word of defeatism brings forth Gestapo bullets. A Stockholm source reports that Actor Anton Robert Dorsay, charged with "undermining the German will to defense" (?), fell before the firing squad. %  THE MOST VALUABLE thing we have here at Ford is your good will. It's been years in the making, and without it we couldn't stay in business. At this time of year we especially like to think about our friends and those who have helped us make them and keep them. We're grateful to the men who have represented us so well in your neighborhood and other communities throughout the world—our dealers. They haven't had things too easy lately. A lot of their best men have gone into the Service \ There are few new cars to sell. And it's a hard job getting needed repair parts and materials. But they have carried on ... and helped keep the nation's important automotive transportation rolling. These dealers have done a fine and workmanlike job of staying in business during difficult times. More than 90% of those we had two years ago are still with us, serving the public honestly, efficiently and economically. And we want to take our hats off to them for keeping Ford a symbol of service in its broadest, finest sense. We tiv.nk your good will, which we treasure s6 highly, is in mighty good hands.

Army in wartime is a deadly serious institution, neither taking out thousand year mortgages on history, nor given to observing occasions. A little touch of grimness in the faces perhaps, a suspicion of extra punch in the counting of cadence maybe, and a brief reference in the chapel sermon, but no more. Altogether the hallmark of the work here, even in the Fourteenth Armored Division up the hill, is not vicious hate, but a pecuiar brand of American detached ness. They seem to be preparing to kill Germans not in an Intense but in an efficient sort of way. The mass production trait. • • • The guy from Albany, New York, does not like one solitary thing about this Army. He griped even before the buck-too. hod blonde at the USO party tonight. He was sloppy, shifty, with the profile of a' saloon anarchist of forty years ago, and his words came in a lazy, turgid stream. The chow, he said, was rotten; the shoes did not fit and that's why he did not shine them; and he did not want to live any longer. It took a long while before I realized that that was his peculiar way of courting, like some animal whose name 1 forget, by smell. When she finally gave him the cold shoulder, the Schoppenhauerian trooper turned his attack against the USO victuals. I saw him stuff his pockets full of chocolate layer cake and was convinced that he was not going to commit suicide after all. We have them of this kind, too, but not many. • Snoring may have caused more cases of AWOL than the prospect of an eight-day problem or the irresistible charms of girl friends.

Like field artillery, snoring has its variations in caliber, elevation, range of effectiveness and power of repercussion. The comparison may be flogged a touch further, in that both in artillery and in snoring, none of the above is necessarily dependent on the noise or the size of the piece. We have big fellows who snore so softly, you could hardly hear them five beds away, and we have little men who keep the noncoms awake nights in their private rooms. Some loud snorers have less penetration, while some low-pitched whining ones get to the very marrow. In the case of Private Kurt G., he is the owner of a style that has ravaging effects because of its irregular meter, the element of psychological surprise, so as to say. Number 145 calls him Beg Birtha, meaning that he is tremendous and sporadic. My luck landed me between Diego, a tiny fat Mexican who snores like a prehistoric mammoth, and a Prague refugee who doubles for the ram's horn in his slumbers and whose name is Werther Weiner. Defense measures against Werther were easy to come by, for he is a good friend of mine and generally meek. Whenever it gets really bad, I wake him. While he is awake, I fall asleep. With Diego it was more problematic. Diego is showing Latin temper, although he has a rotund, angelic face and smiles most of the day, and I don't care to cross him. Trusting to the angel that must be somewhere in him, I reverted to stratagem. I made it a goint every morning to report to 'iego that the snorers are causing me tortures of the soul—not he, Diego, mind you, but the snorers, in plural. My cunning bore fruit, but instead of being sweet, it is embarrassing. Early today, I had occasion to rise for a four o'clock detail and found Diego's bunk empty. Downstairs, in the latrine, poor Jaime Diego was sound asleep on the seat, fully dressed from fatigue cap to leggings and snoring freely. The boys say that he had been doing it for three nights now, just to give us a chance to get some sleep! Another semi-permanent latrine deni/.en is Tani, the Maltese, but he keeps himself enthroned for the purpose of reading his hymnal and telling his beads. I used to condemn his misplaced piousness, but in view of the lesson I learned in the case of Diego. I am inclined to reserve further judgments.

His name is Winterman, bless him. But it is still K. P. At four o'clock, I was just settling down to my second sack of spuds, a messenger called me to the orderly room. Headquarters —I suspect the PRO—wanted to know whether I'd represent the enlisted men at tonight's bond rally in Fort Smith and make a radio speech. I said, yes but I am on K. P. They said, yes they know they can get me off. And I said all right. The name of the station to which I was transferred directly from K. P. was K. F. P. My fears that the fellows would visit punishment on me because of this spot of apple-polishing was unjustified. They fed me on ice cream and wined me on cokes to celebrate my return from Fort Smith famous, until I could take no more. But while I was gorging myself on the fare of the P. X., I missed chapel and the gift packages, which Chaplain Seligson distributed the same evening on behalf of the Chanuka comn ittee of the Kansas City Jewish women of the USO. My Jewish buddies flaunted their "Cnanuka-money" before me. Men like Louis Holz, who wins or loses ten dollars in blackjack with equal amusement, or like Farbman, the Galician oilman, who still carries on a big l usiness through his lawyers in Houston, showed off the gifts of tooth paste and candy like excited children. Even our atheist went to chapel on this occasion.

RIVERSIDE MEMORIAL CHAPEL 1236 Washington Ave. PHONE 5-7777 Who is the gentleman, a vice-president of one of the big department stores in New York, who has been selected by a Jewish organization to proceed to Turkey to check whether Turkish authorities prevent Jewish refugees from passing through the country in transit to Palestine? The State Department, which maintains that Turkey is not returning any Jewish refugees who cross its frontiers from the Balkan countries, has given this man the right to go to Turkey and make his own investigation and return with a report to this country .. Those who criticize Assistant Secretary of State Breckenridge Long as responsible for practically killing the resolution in Congress suggesting the establishment of a government commission to effect the rescue of Jews from Europe would be interested to learn that he warned against "an entirely negative action" with regard to this resolution. "It would be very dangerous to vote it down," he said before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, "very unwise, in a way" ... He expressed his opinion that this is a very important moment in the history of the refugee movement, and emphasjized that "the Jewish people are looking forward" to the decision which the Committee on Foreign Affairs will take on the resolution ... "If an entirely negative action were taken, it would be misconstrued and might react against the Jewish people under German control," he is quoted in the official record as testifying Nevertheless, it is obvious from the record of his testimony that he preferred that the Foreign Affairs Committee support the Intergovernmental Committee for Refugees rather than recommend the establishment of a special American committee for the rescue of European Jews What he seemed to be most eager to achieve was that any sympathy resolution Congress may adopt concerning the Jews in Nazi-Europe should not fail to include some very definite statement on the interest of the American Government in the Jews "because the Government has been interested in them." RUSSIAN SIDELIGHTS .... Those people in the United States who are going around saying that after the war Soviet Russia will dominate the world, will change their mind after reading David J. Dallin's book, "Russia and Post-War Europe," just published by the Yale University Press ... Mr. Dallin, an expert on Russian affairs, estimates, by the way, that of the 1,500,000 persons who were transferred by the Soviet authorities from eastern Polish cities to Siberia in the early months of the war, fiftyfive per cent were Jews These are the Polish Jews whom the Soviet Government now considers Soviet citizens Most of them are still in Siberia, while others are in Uzbekistan ... As to the future of Russia after the war, Mr. Dallin believes that it will not be Russia, but England and America who will jointly dominate the world During the years immediately after the war the huge navies of Britain and the United States will rule the world seas, and their air power will ensure their predominance on the continents, Mr. Dallin predicts The prospect that the only real force will be combined power of the two Anglo-Saxon countries spells great danger for the foreign policy of the Soviet Government, the author asserts Especiaiy so, since this policy conceives of no greater menace to Russia than a domination of one coalition of powers over the entire world out of the question. ZIONIST AFFAIRS .... A Zionist delegation may be received by President Roosevelt early next month There are indications that Roosevelt and Churchill conferred on the Palestine question during their stay in Cairo ... The statement on U. S. policy with regard to Palestine made by Assistant Secretary of State Long before the House Committee in Washington came as a disappointment to "Zionist leaders This statement, the first of its kind, did not mention the Jews, the Balfour declaration, the Jewish National Home ... It spoke of American interest in Palestine's future from the viewpoint of the "larger aspect of world security and world peace" ... In the light of growing pro-Arab propaganda in Washington, conducted by interested American individuals of influence, this statement is certainly calculated to appease everybody but the Jews. One must not take it for granted, however, that the pro-Arab influence in higher circles in Washington remains unchallenged ... Dr. Abba HQlel Silver, chairman of the American Zionist Council, is today the busiest Jewish leader in the country ... In fact, Jewish interests in Palestine have in Dr. Silver the most active defender, whose influence in Washington is much greater than that of any other Zionist leader. RELIEF REFLECTIONS .... The Jewish Labor Committee has taken issue with the State Department on the figures submitted by Mr. Long to the House Foreign Affairs Committee in his report on the number of Jewish refugees admitted to the United States during the last ten years These figures are challenged in a memorandum which the Jewish Labor Committee submitted to the State Department And speaking of refugees, it is interesting to learn that the Council of Jewish Women is now compiling a gigantic master file of famUies disrupted by the war and Nazi persecution This file is made up of scraps of information from all corners of the world ... It will be of the qreatest value during the post-war period, since it already contains names of thousands of European Jews who today are in concentration camps and labor battalions Onginalv bequn when the Council undertook the task of locating the relatives of Jewish families scattered by persecution from their native villages, the file is expanding daily as fresh reports come in from refugees in all parts of Asia, Africa and the United States.
