PALESTINE TO RUSSIA
As a result of a study conduct-
ed over a period of a year, the
Young Men's Hebrew Association
and the Young Women's Hebrew
Association of Greater Miami
have consolidated and formed the
Young Men's and Young Women s
Hebrew Association of Greater
Miami. This was accomplished
at a special membership meeting
called a week ago, when the con-
stitution and charter of tin Y. M.
H. A. was amended to permit this
new set-up.
Following the trend of com-
munity centers throughout the
country towards the consolida-
tion of integral groups, the "Y
took this step towards its com-
munity center goal.
The new plan allows for family
membership, individual male and
female memberships and boys
and girls of all age groups afflh- |
ation. The new Y.M. & Y.W.H.A
is the result of twelve years of
progress of the group which orig-
inally started as the Hebrew
Athletic Club and then the Y.M.H.
A. The women's group was a
separate organization, as were
the other affiliated activities.
Immediately following the
change, the board of the organi-
zation was increased and new
members selected as part ot the
expansion program included Mol-
ly Belov. Alex Cohen. Maurice
Cromer. Ida Engler Marx r.-in-
berg, Jerome Frehhng. Natnan
Cans, Minnie Lavine, Pearl ReiS-
man. Miriam Sager. Sam Silver,
Harry Simonhoff.. Bea Stepkm,

Anti Defamation League
We have written at some length
in previous columns regarding
business and professional ethics
and how the misdeeds of one in-
dividual can fasten itself on the
group as a whole.
During the past two weeks we
have met with representative
groups of Miami and Miami
Beach lawyers to discuss the
problems inherent in our local sit-
uation. Out of these meetings
has come a constructive sugges-
tion, which we are happy to state
has immediately been effectuated.
Arbitration panels, each con-
sisting of a rabbi, lawyer and
layman, have been established
both in Miami and on Miami
Beach under the auspices of B'nai
B'rith. It is the purpose of these
panels to attemDt to arbitrate
disputes before they invade the
realm of the courts with resultant
newspaper publicity. Further, it
is the object of these panels to act
as a clearing house for complaints
and grievances, which if left un-
aired too often leaves a bitter
scar. These panels are at the ser-
vice of all residents of Dade
County.
Rabbi Shapiro, Harry Simon-
hoff and Isaac Levin constitutes
the Miami panel, while Rabbis
Mescheloff and Lehrman, Harry
Zukernick and Herman Berk
have been appointed as the Miami
Beach arbiters, with the names
of the two laymen yet to be an-
nounced.
All individuals desiring to
bring matters to the attention of
these arbitration panels may do
so by contacting any of the mem-
bers named or the executive di-
rector of the Anti-Defamation
League.

Jewish riots in Vienna following
the seizure of Austria by the
Germans in 1938, he was forced

OFF THE RECORD ....
Editors of Jewish newspapers in New York are plotting a
"revolution" against the so-called "off-the-record" press con-
ferences which are so often given by central Jewish organiza-
tions They claim that these "off-the-record" gatherings
are just a trap to prevent Jewish journalists from telling their
readers what-is-what behind-the-scenes of Jewish life in the
United States The truth is that most of the news goven to
editors of the Jewish press "for their own information" is
nothing but items which are aldeady known but not yet pub-
lished Some of the editors feel that there would have been
no harm in making the news public, had not interested Jew-
ish leaders in the meantime "confided" it ah "highly confi-
dential" The feeling among some editors is, therefore, not
to attend any "off-the-record" affairs, so as to have a free
hand in publishing whatever news they feel justified in mak-
ing public The question of how to effectively root out
Nazism and anti-Semitism from the minds of the German peo-
ple after the war has been entrusted by President Roosevelt
to Justice Samuel I. Rosenman Justice Rosenman, who is
now engaged in studying for the President the problem of
post-war re-education of the Axis countries and countries
liberated from the Axis, has always been interested in edu-
cational activities Among other things, he was until
this year the president of the Jewish Education Committee of
New York which supervises education of more than 60,000
children in various Jewish schools in the metropolitan area.
And speaking of education, we hear that a Spanish edition
of Dr. A. L. Sachar's "History of the Jeews" has just been
published in Santiago, Chile ... Dr. Sachar, national direc-
tor of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation, can now claim credit
for helping to educate the growing Jewish communities in
Latin America where the Spenish edition of his beek will no
doubt be a good seller
WASHINGTON ECHOES ....
You may soon hear of a scheme under which the U. S.
Government will make it possible to move thousands of Ru-
manian Jews from devastated Transnistria Some Jewish
organizations, after reading the full text of Assistant Secretary
of State Breckenridge Long's testimony on the question of
saving Jews in Europe, have come to the conclusion that
the Assistant Secretary did not receive a fair deal in the
press ... In fact, one central Jewish organization which was
about to protest to the State Department concerning Long's
testimony, changed its mind after becoming acquainted with
the full text of what the Assistant Secretary said This
does not alter the fact that he exaggerated very much by
stating that the majority of the 580,000 people who entered the
United States during the last ten years were Jews ... On this
point Assistant Secretary Long made a very serious blunder
since the number of Jewish refugees who entered this country
during that period was much less Interested Jewish groups
are very anxious to secure the full text of the extended man-
date of the International Committee on Refugees This is
important because of the curious discrepancies between the
State Department interpretation and the Intergovernmental
Committee's interpretation of the mandate The State De-
partment takes the view that under the extended mandate the
Intergovernmental Committee is empowered to undertake
direct negotiations with Germany for the emigration of Jews
from Nazi territory The Intergovernmental Committee in-
sists, however, that this is not the case Each side quotes
those sections from the text of the mandate which tend to sup-
port its own views ... As the full text of the mandate has
never been made public, it is felt in Jewish circles that it is
high time that the disputed document was released Only
then will interested Jewish groups be able to judge whose
interpretation is correct ... This is aU the more desirable since
the fate of the surviving Jews in occupied Europe depends on
correct interpretation of the mandate.
PALESTINE PROSPECTS ....
With the return of President Roosevelt from his confer-
ences with Churchill, there is much talk in Washington con-
cerning the possibility of an unexpected solution of the Pal-
estine problem And from London private reports are
reaching Zionist leaders here indicating that the situation
looks better for Jewish interests in Palestine The new Pal-
estine partition scheme seems to be comign more and more
to the forefront both in London and in Washington official
circles Meanwhile, there is quite a bit of competition
among Zionist leaders in the United States as to which of
them is to proceed to London to aid Dr. Weizmann in his im-
portant negotiations with British officials There are at
least a half-a-dozen American Zionist leaders who would like
to be in on the London mission, but Dr. Weizmann wants
only two And these two are to be named by the American
Zionist Emergency Council ... It would be only natural were
Dr Abba Hillel Silver to be one of these two But Dr. bil-
ver is today practicaly the only dynamic force in Zionist po-
litical work in America ... It is, therefore, questionable
whether he would be willing to interrupt the important Zion-
ist activities which he is now conducting in this country As
to the other candidates, it realy does not matter which of them
will go to London.
TEN COMMANDMENTS ,
When Hitler came into power, he confided to some ot nis
close collaborators that he intended not only to annihilate
the Jews, but also put an end to the Ten Commandments .
He considered that the code of ethics contained within these
commandments hampered the free will of Jpeople and pre-
vented them from doing what they thought they should.

STARKE MAN IS CITED
FOR SPECIAL SERVICE
Aviation Cadet Jerry Levine of
Maxwell Field, graduate of Mi-
ami Beach high and a former stu-
dent of University of Florida, is
spending a ten-day furlough at
home. He is visiting his parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Abe Levine, 311 N.
E. 28th St. Upon his return to
Maxwell Field, he will be as-
signed to an advanced training
base.
Second Lt. William S. Cohen.
is now stationed at Tinker Field,
Oklahoma City air depot, where
he is an assistant quartermaster
officer.
Pfc. Abraham Strom. 24, of
Brooklyn, holder of the Purple
Heart and an Oak Leaf Cluster
to the Purple Heart, has received
a commendation for bravery
under fire.
Pfc. Albert H. Feingold. 36. of
West New York, N. J., who dis-
played "exceptional bravery"
during the fighting in Sicily, is
the recipient of the Silver Star.
His squad had been held up by
heavy machine gun fire coming
from a pillbox. Private Fein-
gold volunteered to "take care"
of it. He moved out, advanced
alone through the hail of bul-
lets, drew up to the enemy em-
placement and dropped hand
grenades through its openings.
His squad moved forward.
INTER FAITH ACCORD IS
EXEMPLIFIED IN THE JUNGLE
From a jungle base somewhere
in the South Pacific, Chaplain
A. N. Winokur reported to the
Jewish Welfare Board last week
an instance of genuine inter-faith
accord.
"My office here is a tiny tent."
he wrote, "consisting of one field
desk, one box, one chair and this
broken down typewriter. I live
in a native-built hut with a Cath-
olic chaplain, a Protestant chap-
lain( both assigned to the base)
and a major (a field officer) who
wandered in one day and has re-
mained ever since.'
By way of local color. Chaplain
Winokur added that "it's winter
here, so the temperature is only
in the middle nineties. Crawling
all around me are lizards, centi-
pedes and ants. But who am I
to complain when the mosquitoes
find me repulsive?"
Well, you can't please every-
one.
Lt. Col. Ben Sternbcrg, 20, of
Starke, Fla.. has been awarded
the Distinguished Service Cross
an award second only in im-
portance to the Congressional
Medal ol Honorfor extraordin-
ary heroism in action during the
Tunisian campaign.
The action in which Sternberg
figured took place between March
2I( and March 25 ol this year in
the vicinity of El Guttar, Tunisia.
More than 200 enemy tanks,
half tracks and armored vehicles
had attacked the infantry divis-
ion of which Sternberg was in
command. The enemy was mak-
ing a determined effort to de-
stroy the preliminary American
offensive in that sector.
The Germans attacked at dawn.
Lt. Col. Sternberg, ignoring all
personal risk and fully aware of
the danger that confronted him,
began circulating throughout his
battalion area. He was exposing
himself to severe machine gun,
mortar and artillery fire in the
treeless terrain. But he proceed-
ed on his rounds, shifting critical
positions, urging his men to stif-
fen their resistance, personally
directing local counterattacks.
When the battalion was once
more subjected to furious enemy
assault, Lt Col. Sternberg in-
spired his troops, by his own ex-
ample, to such determined resist-
ance that the enemy was driven
off, the position held intact.
The award citation praises "the
indomitable courage and initia-
tive displayed by Lt. Col. Stern-
berg" through which he "in-
spired his command to greater ef-
forts and aided materially in the
success of the mission."
E
Ml ALLTH[FRONTS
Lt. Manuel Mendelson, 23. of
Pittsburgh, Pa., a bombardier
who estimates he has dropped
125,000 pounds of bombs on the
Nazis and territory under their
domination, holds the Distin-
guished Flying Cross, the Air
Medal, and three Oak Leaf Clus-
ters. A veteran of 25 missions.
Lieutenant Mendelson is now
back in this country.
The name of the Fortress he
served on is "Kipling's Error." for
its crew was composed of five
men from the the East and five
from the West. "The worst raid
i was in," Lieutenant Mendeison
recalls, "was over H a n o v er,
where fighters made us their tar-
f4(t for two and a half hours and
we were in the thick of the most
flak I'd ever seen." Some time
before, he had anchored a sheet
of armor plate on the left hand
side of the Fortress' nose against
the window. On the Hanover
mission a 20-mm. shell came
tearing into the nose and was
stopped by that protective sheet.
"That's why I'm here today," he
said. "All that shell did was to
tear the shoulder off my jacket."
Manuel is one of three broth-
ers in service. Ben. 35, a cor-
poral, is stationed at Fort Meade,
and Abe, 32, a staff sergeant, is
a gunner and armorer on duty
at the Pyote Army Air Base in
Texas.
I've Just Buried My Buddy*
Lt. Cmdr. Samuel A. Isquith,
45. of Brooklyn, a medical officer,
has been decorated with the Le-
gion of Merit "for exceptionally
meritorious conduct in the per-
formance of outstanding services
aboard the U. S. S. Vincennes."
The vessel, a heavy cruiser, was
sunk by Japanese fire in the Sol-
omon Island area on Aug. 9. 1942.
"Surmounting all the obstacles
presented by battle conditions,"
says Isquith's citation, signed by
Secretary Knox for President
Roosevelt, "he tirelessly devoted
himself to providing the injured
with skilled medical care, remain-
ing at his dressing station until
his sinking warship had been al-
m o s t completely abandoned."
Even on a life raft in the open
sea Lieutenant Commander Is-
quith took no rest from his ex-
hausting task, continuing to ad-
minister to the wounded about
him, and carried on after being
taken aboard a rescuing destroyer
and later aboard a transport.

T/Sgt. Norman Glass, 24, of
Baltimore, Md., who reports in
messages to his parents that he
has completed 30 operational
flights over Axis-occupied Eu-
rope, has been awarded the Dis-
tinguished Flying Cross, the Air
Medal and an Oak Leaf Cluster.
Sergeant Glass is a member of
the Eighth Air Force based in
England.
Serving as radio man aboard
a Flying Fort, Glass has been
overseas since April and has been
recommended for training as a

termination before the year 1944

"Bill" Singer
Hats off to "Bill" Singer and
his committee. They're really
'hitting the ball" in their plans
to make the annual bazaar the
most outstanding affair ever held

V" victory bazaar, and it is ap-
propriate ly named. I'm looking
forward to seeing you there.
Don! forget the time and place.
It'll be held at the Y on Satur-
day night, Sunday and Monday.
January 15, i(> and 17th.

At a meeting called for that
purpose on December 22nd the
YMHA and the YW11A were
merged into one organization.
was officially informed
merger by letter datt d
( i' 23rd from our hard-hitting
executive d i r e c t o r, Maurice
Grossman. I'll quote from his
letter, "History was made last
evening in that the YM and
YWHA, heretofore two separate
and distant organizations, con-
solidated and merged into one
mization, to be known as the
YM and YWHA of Gr< ater Mi
ami. This has been our goal
tor a long tun.' and we an- hi
that v. e finally achieved our
ition. Great things are in
store for the organization and
ior the communitj in k<
and with an active board, much
cm be accomplished*." Maurice
also informed me in his lettei
that 1 was electro to men
ship on the hoard of directors,
for which I am grateful to all
members of the Y.
Solov and Marvin Concert
We have the raiv privilege of
witnessing a performance by two
young artists, who are each
"tops'' in his field, at the Y.
Sunday. January 9th, at 4 p m.
Sgt Zachary Solov has perform-
-GORDON
FUNERAL HOME
ed at several Y functions before
as a member of the Air Corps
Caperers. He's really a swell
ballet dancer. The other young
artist who will appear with Sgt.
Solov is Pvt. Frederick Marvin.
Freddie is a pianist and a darn
good one. He gave a concert at
the University of Miami Conser-
vatory a lew months ago, and
recently was the recipient of a
swell write-up by Walter Win-
ch, II for his ability. He's from
California and is widely known
in his home state.
Edward Clarke Book Review

r Edward Clai ke, ol the Um-
versity of Miami, will review the

A. Z. A. Convention

aid an ail day convention
Y last Monday, December
Even though 1 do not have
the particulars before me. I have
been informed that the conven-
tion was well attended by boys
and girls from various sections
of the state who participated in
ating, oratory and athletics.
The day was climaxed by the
dinner-dance held at one ol the
r known clubs in the city.
Post War Plans
been much discus-
sion about the erection oi an
ropriate Jewish community
center in Great r Miami after
the war. Planning committees
been appointed by the Mi-
ami Y and the Miami Beach Y.
Tl le committees are supposed
to iron out certain details and
then commence a drive for funds
to lie used for building after the
war Since the appointment of
the committees 1 have heard of
little that has been done
I feel that the people of Greater
Miami are entitled to have a
community center and 'hat plans
should be made for same imme-
diately. Lets put this worthy
project across.

This will be the last column
for this year, and the last column
by this correspondent.
In this column the writer should
give a resume ol the activities of
the Lodge during the past year
and activities now in progress
and soon to be completed.
At this time this column should
likewise set forth the aims ami
hopes of the administration
which will take over the activi-
ties of B'nai B'rith in Greater
Miami for the coming year.
Despite the fact that all these
matters should be touched upon
by the writer space will not per-
mit a Complete analysis, hence .t
ia omitted entire!),
With the next issue of The Flo-
ridian, another member of Sho-
lem Lodge will take over "this
corner"' to bring to the members
and friends of B'nai B'rith the j
newa and activities of the Lodge
as a unit of B'nai B'rith and as '
an integral part of the commun- '
ity.
Marx M. Feinberg has been des-
ignated to "take over" by the
President Elect, Milton A. Fried-
man, and knowing Brother Fein-
berg we are certain that this
column will gam readers and
popularity, for Marx has a ready
Wit, a glib tongue and a line sense
of humor. We know you will
walcome him to "The Jewish Flo-
ridian" as well a.- to "B'nai B'rith
Notes."
For ourselves, we frankly con-
fess that at times "getting out a
column'* was a chore, but derived
some satisfaction from the "ei
by favorable comments from well
intentioned friends. '
In closing this column for th-
year, in addition to our own Z
bring to you from Lou Hcn'mr.
president, and the other officer.
of Sholem Lodge, the best of th!
season's greetings, and wishes for
a most Happy New Yeear With
hope enhanced for an earlier vie
tory by the progress air,
made in the war by the United
Nations.
The incoming admin istration
headed by Milton A. Friedman
join in expressions of hope and
good wishes for th.. comin- vpar
and pledge to Sholem Lodge and
the community an active B'nai
B'rith year, with the object of
carrying forth to a great i', x'ent
than ever those project: i dear
to the organization.

In this column the writer should give a resume ol the activities of the Lodge during the past year and activities now in progress and soon to be completed.

Despite the fact that all these matters should be touched upon by the writer space will not permit a Complete analysis, hence .t ia omitted entire!), With the next issue of The Floridian, another member of Sholem Lodge will take over "this corner"' to bring to the members and friends of B'nai B'rith the j newa and activities of the Lodge as a unit of B'nai B'rith and as an integral part of the commun' ity. Marx M. Feinberg has been designated to "take over" by the President Elect, Milton A.

We know you will walcome him to "The Jewish Floridian" as well a.to "B'nai B'rith Notes." For ourselves, we frankly confess that at times "getting out a column'* was a chore, but derived some satisfaction from the "ei by favorable comments from well intentioned friends.

The war in the Pacific, although progressing satisfactorily, has still not reached a point where we can see the end in sight. But there is a tone of victory in the air. Men such as Churchill and Gen. Smutsmen who have cautioned against hasty conclusions as to when the war will end themselves — have recently engaged in such conjectures. Churchill said that the war might end in 1944. A recent survey of newspaper correspondents showed that most of them were of the opinion that poorrtM VIT>XM meiavn mi9 h, ,e, miM e ta 1944.

Another encouraging factor is the apparent desiie of the smaller countries to disentangle themselves from their generally involuntary alliances with the Nazis. The year 1944 may see the end of the war and the beginning of the end of the Jewish tragedy.

Representative Rankin of Mississippi has long been one of the members of Congress of whom that distinguished body could instru m havii i tabtake least pride in. _______^^_ Congressman Rankin has long been known for his abusive LEADER GOES TO LONDON attacks on Jews in Congress. But last week. Congressman FOR J EWISH RESCUE WORK Rankin reached a new high or maybe we should call it a new New York (JTA)— Dr. Arieh low in his disgraceful conduct. He was attacking the bill to give ', irtakower, executive member the American soldiers the right to vote. Rankin is very much opposed to (his. It would seem to us that if any Americans are entitled to vote, above all it is the soldier, but Rankin thinks otherwise. The soldiers do not want to vote, he insists, and in fact, nobody wants the soldiers to vote. The only ones, he declares, who want the soldiers to I Id Jewish congn and lent >>i the repn sentation of Polish Jews in America will soon leave tor London to negotiate there with various groups coning the immediate rescue of J< ws in occupied Poland, it was announced lure.

In criticising Jews for urging the right of soldiers to vote, Congressman Rankin is really paying them a sincere compliment, although he is, of course, too obtuse to understand it. And that raises the question about some anti-Semites. they really as wicked as they are profoundly stupid'' Are "The Fuehrer colls this a strategic retreat ( New Yoik (JTA).—The executive committee of the Zionist organization of America this w.. k meed that at a meeting last week in New York it decided to inaugurate a "strong campaign" against the American Council of Judaism for its anti-Zionist activities Dr James (i Heller of innati, former president of entral confi | American rabbis, will direct the campaign, the announcement said.

Several nazi newspapers are carrying the protocols in serial form. AUSTRALIANS WOULD BAN JEWS FROM PEACE DEBATES Melbourne (WNS). — The Australian labor party last week voted down a resolution, at its triennial convention in Canberra, urging that Jews, as such, be represented at the peace conference. CHIT-CHAT ....

It was a good job ... A Jewish information quiz program is being readied by a national radio advertiser Jacob Fishman of the Jewish Morning Journal is preparing a tome on his adventures as a foreign correspondent Ellin Mackay (Mrs. Irving) Berlin has authored a book on the refugee situation The new half-dollar edition of Albert E Kahn's and Michael Sayers' "Sabotage" is selling at a faster pace than Wendell Willkie's "One World" did in its heyday 150.000 copies were sold within three days One chapter of this book was ready too late for inclusion in the new edition. BROADWAY LIGHTS .... Broadway is beginning to believe that life repeats itself in cycles Way back in 1906 Oscar Hammerstein opened his Manhattan Opera House, where he presented operas in so lively a manner that he drew thousands of customers away from the staid Metropolitan Opera (which later bought him out for a million and a half dollars) And today his grandson, Oscar Hammerstein II, is luring thousands oi cash customers to the current production of "Carmen Jones," of which he's the librettist— while the Metropolitan nurses a tremendous deficit Lieutenant Sidney Kingsley was unable to attend the premiere of the revival of his hit play of last season, "The Patriots," at New York's new City Center of Drama and Music because he was in quarantine with nothing less than whooping cough. ABOUT PEOPLE .... Niels Bohn, father of modern atomic theory, may be in this country soon The non-Aryan physicist is reported to have made his escape from Denmark just as the Nazis were getting set to put the screws on him to create the "secret weapon" they need so badly to make good their boasts The Library of Congress is having difficulty finding a successor to Dr. Israel Schapiro. retiring head of its Jewish Division As if life weren't confusing enough, economist Robert Nathan is planning to publish a book On Economics, of course • Now if Poet Robert Nathan will only arrange to publish a volume of verse, or even a novel, at about the same time, book clerks all over the country will go completely daffyAlex Hillman, who was Pierre van Paassen's fust publisher, is thinking of buying a radio station, they say. Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan Takes this means of thanking the many friends who remembered him on his birthday, and also the kind Christian friends who sent him their Christmas greetings. It is impossible in the rush of work to acknowledge each kind message personally. Please accept my sincere appreciation.

FRIDAY. DECEMBER 31. 1943 -Jew 1st fkx idton PAGE FIVE Face Facts By Alexander F. Miller Florida Regional Direr tor Anti Defamation League We have written at some length in previous columns regarding business and professional ethics and how the misdeeds of one individual can fasten itself on the group as a whole. During the past two weeks we have met with representative groups of Miami and Miami Beach lawyers to discuss the problems inherent in our local situation. Out of these meetings has come a constructive suggestion, which we are happy to state has immediately been effectuated. Arbitration panels, each consisting of a rabbi, lawyer and layman, have been established both in Miami and on Miami Beach under the auspices of B'nai B'rith. It is the purpose of these panels to attemDt to arbitrate disputes before they invade the realm of the courts with resultant newspaper publicity. Further, it is the object of these panels to act as a clearing house for complaints and grievances, which if left unaired too often leaves a bitter scar. These panels are at the service of all residents of Dade County. Rabbi Shapiro, Harry Simonhoff and Isaac Levin constitutes the Miami panel, while Rabbis Mescheloff and Lehrman, Harry Zukernick and Herman Berk have been appointed as the Miami Beach arbiters, with the names of the two laymen yet to be announced. All individuals desiring to bring matters to the attention of these arbitration panels may do so by contacting any of the members named or the executive director of the Anti-Defamation League. LOCAL I. I A. IS APPOINTED TO EXECUTIVE BODY Ted Sakowitz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Asrial B. Sakowitz, received word this week of his appointment to the Grand Aleph Godol's executive committee and as chairman of the national B'nai B'rith Cooperation Committee. Ted was candidate for the Grand Aleph Godol in the recent election of national AZA officers, the election of whom for the first time in the history of the Junior B'nai B'rith was conducted by mail. The first meeting of the Grand Aleph Godol's executive committee will be held on Saturday and Sunday, January 29th and 30th. in Washington, D. C. Sakowitz is the only member of the committee from District 5 and will attend the opening sessions. He has been active in youth groups here and recently was elected to head the newly formed permanent Hillel Foundation at the University of Miami. He is president of the state AZA chapters and one of the local chapters. He is also president of the Youth Council of Greater Miami, and of Tau Xi Chapter of Tau Epsilon Phi. national social fraternity on the University of Miami campus. General Aitembly Delegates At a recent meeting, Federation's eexecutive committee selected its president, Sam Blank, and the chairman of its board of directors, Monte Selig, as its two voting delegates to the 1944 general assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds.

OFF THE RECORD .... Editors of Jewish newspapers in New York are plotting a "revolution" against the so-called "off-the-record" press conferences which are so often given by central Jewish organizations They claim that these "off-the-record" gatherings are just a trap to prevent Jewish journalists from telling their readers what-is-what behind-the-scenes of Jewish life in the United States The truth is that most of the news goven to editors of the Jewish press "for their own information" is nothing but items which are aldeady known but not yet published Some of the editors feel that there would have been no harm in making the news public, had not interested Jewish leaders in the meantime "confided" it ah "highly confidential" The feeling among some editors is, therefore, not to attend any "off-the-record" affairs, so as to have a free hand in publishing whatever news they feel justified in making public The question of how to effectively root out Nazism and anti-Semitism from the minds of the German people after the war has been entrusted by President Roosevelt to Justice Samuel I. Rosenman Justice Rosenman, who is now engaged in studying for the President the problem of post-war re-education of the Axis countries and countries liberated from the Axis, has always been interested in educational activities Among other things, he was until this year the president of the Jewish Education Committee of New York which supervises education of more than 60,000 children in various Jewish schools in the metropolitan area. And speaking of education, we hear that a Spanish edition of Dr. A. L. Sachar's "History of the Jeews" has just been published in Santiago, Chile ... Dr. Sachar, national director of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation, can now claim credit for helping to educate the growing Jewish communities in Latin America where the Spenish edition of his beek will no doubt be a good seller WASHINGTON ECHOES .... You may soon hear of a scheme under which the U. S. Government will make it possible to move thousands of Rumanian Jews from devastated Transnistria Some Jewish organizations, after reading the full text of Assistant Secretary of State Breckenridge Long's testimony on the question of saving Jews in Europe, have come to the conclusion that the Assistant Secretary did not receive a fair deal in the press ... In fact, one central Jewish organization which was about to protest to the State Department concerning Long's testimony, changed its mind after becoming acquainted with the full text of what the Assistant Secretary said This does not alter the fact that he exaggerated very much by stating that the majority of the 580,000 people who entered the United States during the last ten years were Jews ... On this point Assistant Secretary Long made a very serious blunder since the number of Jewish refugees who entered this country during that period was much less Interested Jewish groups are very anxious to secure the full text of the extended mandate of the International Committee on Refugees This is important because of the curious discrepancies between the State Department interpretation and the Intergovernmental Committee's interpretation of the mandate The State Department takes the view that under the extended mandate the Intergovernmental Committee is empowered to undertake direct negotiations with Germany for the emigration of Jews from Nazi territory The Intergovernmental Committee insists, however, that this is not the case Each side quotes those sections from the text of the mandate which tend to support its own views ... As the full text of the mandate has never been made public, it is felt in Jewish circles that it is high time that the disputed document was released Only then will interested Jewish groups be able to judge whose interpretation is correct ... This is aU the more desirable since the fate of the surviving Jews in occupied Europe depends on correct interpretation of the mandate. PALESTINE PROSPECTS .... With the return of President Roosevelt from his conferences with Churchill, there is much talk in Washington concerning the possibility of an unexpected solution of the Palestine problem And from London private reports are reaching Zionist leaders here indicating that the situation looks better for Jewish interests in Palestine The new Palestine partition scheme seems to be comign more and more to the forefront both in London and in Washington official circles Meanwhile, there is quite a bit of competition among Zionist leaders in the United States as to which of them is to proceed to London to aid Dr. Weizmann in his important negotiations with British officials There are at least a half-a-dozen American Zionist leaders who would like to be in on the London mission, but Dr. Weizmann wants only two And these two are to be named by the American Zionist Emergency Council ... It would be only natural were Dr Abba Hillel Silver to be one of these two But Dr. bilver is today practicaly the only dynamic force in Zionist political work in America ... It is, therefore, questionable whether he would be willing to interrupt the important Zionist activities which he is now conducting in this country As to the other candidates, it realy does not matter which of them will go to London. TEN COMMANDMENTS • • • • When Hitler came into power, he confided to some ot nis close collaborators that he intended not only to annihilate the Jews, but also put an end to the Ten Commandments He considered that the code of ethics contained within these commandments hampered the free will of Jpeople and prevented them from doing what they thought they should.

He moved out, advanced alone through the hail of bullets, drew up to the enemy emplacement and dropped hand grenades through its openings. His squad moved forward. INTER FAITH ACCORD IS EXEMPLIFIED IN THE JUNGLE From a jungle base somewhere in the South Pacific, Chaplain A. N. Winokur reported to the Jewish Welfare Board last week an instance of genuine inter-faith accord. "My office here is a tiny tent." he wrote, "consisting of one field desk, one box, one chair and this broken down typewriter. I live in a native-built hut with a Catholic chaplain, a Protestant chaplain( both assigned to the base) and a major (a field officer) who wandered in one day and has remained ever since.' By way of local color. Chaplain Winokur added that "it's winter here, so the temperature is only in the middle nineties. Crawling all around me are lizards, centipedes and ants. But who am I to complain when the mosquitoes find me repulsive?" Well, you can't please everyone. Lt. Col. Ben Sternbcrg, 20, of Starke, Fla.. has been awarded the Distinguished Service Cross —an award second only in importance to the Congressional Medal ol Honor—for extraordinary heroism in action during the Tunisian campaign. The action in which Sternberg figured took place between March 2I( and March 25 ol this year in the vicinity of El Guttar, Tunisia. More than 200 enemy tanks, half tracks and armored vehicles had attacked the infantry division of which Sternberg was in command. The enemy was making a determined effort to destroy the preliminary American offensive in that sector. The Germans attacked at dawn. Lt. Col. Sternberg, ignoring all personal risk and fully aware of the danger that confronted him, began circulating throughout his battalion area. He was exposing himself to severe machine gun, mortar and artillery fire in the treeless terrain. But he proceeded on his rounds, shifting critical positions, urging his men to stiffen their resistance, personally directing local counterattacks. When the battalion was once more subjected to furious enemy assault, Lt Col. Sternberg inspired his troops, by his own example, to such determined resistance that the enemy was driven off, the position held intact. The award citation praises "the indomitable courage and initiative displayed by Lt. Col. Sternberg" through which he "inspired his command to greater efforts and aided materially in the success of the mission." E Ml ALLTH[FRONTS Lt. Manuel Mendelson, 23. of Pittsburgh, Pa., a bombardier who estimates he has dropped 125,000 pounds of bombs on the Nazis and territory under their domination, holds the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal, and three Oak Leaf Clusters. A veteran of 25 missions. Lieutenant Mendelson is now back in this country. The name of the Fortress he served on is "Kipling's Error." for its crew was composed of five men from the the East and five from the West. "The worst raid i was in," Lieutenant Mendeison recalls, "was over H a n o v er, where fighters made us their tarf4(t for two and a half hours and we were in the thick of the most flak I'd ever seen." Some time before, he had anchored a sheet of armor plate on the left hand side of the Fortress' nose against the window. On the Hanover mission a 20-mm. shell came tearing into the nose and was stopped by that protective sheet. "That's why I'm here today," he said. "All that shell did was to tear the shoulder off my jacket." Manuel is one of three brothers in service. Ben. 35, a corporal, is stationed at Fort Meade, and Abe, 32, a staff sergeant, is a gunner and armorer on duty at the Pyote Army Air Base in Texas. I've Just Buried My Buddy* Lt. Cmdr. Samuel A. Isquith, 45. of Brooklyn, a medical officer, has been decorated with the Legion of Merit "for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services aboard the U. S. S. Vincennes." The vessel, a heavy cruiser, was sunk by Japanese fire in the Solomon Island area on Aug. 9. 1942. "Surmounting all the obstacles presented by battle conditions," says Isquith's citation, signed by Secretary Knox for President Roosevelt, "he tirelessly devoted himself to providing the injured with skilled medical care, remaining at his dressing station until his sinking warship had been alm o s t completely abandoned." Even on a life raft in the open sea Lieutenant Commander Isquith took no rest from his exhausting task, continuing to administer to the wounded about him, and carried on after being taken aboard a rescuing destroyer and later aboard a transport. Buy War Stamps and Bonds NOW and give our men in the armed forces the help they need. T/Sgt. Norman Glass, 24, of Baltimore, Md., who reports in messages to his parents that he has completed 30 operational flights over Axis-occupied Europe, has been awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal and an Oak Leaf Cluster.
