Stern, a forty-fiveyear-old Jewish refugee from Germany serving in the American Army in Italy who cooly tricked a halt-dozen Nazis into surrender in January by telling them in German they were surrounded, was awarded the Silver Star for gallantry this week by the War Department. Stern, a textile printer, was driven from Germany in 1939. A veteran of the Germany Army in the first world war, he had received the Iron Cross. Twice he was forced to run the gauntlet of Storm Troopers armed with whips. He decided he could retaliate upon the Nazis in only one way, by coming to the United States and joining an army that could wipe them out. In October. 1942. he entered th< Army. Early last pus. the army told nim he could have an honorable discharge because he was over thirty-eight. He refused. It would interfere *'ith his plans lor revenge. Instead, by request, he was sent overseas. ing its quota of $1,000,000 necessary to sponsor the purchasing of a sub-chaser.

SHOCHET, Managing Editor Subscription—1 Year, $2.00 Six Months, $1.00 MIAMI 18, FLORIDA. FRIDAY. JULY 14, 1944 TAMMUZ 23. 5704 VOLUME 17 NUMBER 28 Face Facts • By Alexander F. Miller Florida Regional Director Anti Defamation League -TIDBITS FROM EVER! Mctey, eongldenUai -By PHINEAS J. BIRONON THE WAY Unanimous endorsement of the proposed merger by Congregation Schaarei Zedek at a meeting of its membership last week speaks for itself. It brings into sight the successful culmination of some eight months efforts to effectuate a merger with the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, from which it divided about two years ago. This action coming from the group who felt their sincerity of purpose strong enough to make this break, shows a like sincerity in taking this step to rejoin and consolidate. Moreso is this action to be commended when evidencing the success Schaarei Zedek made in its undertakings, now operating the largest attended Talmud Torah in the area. Financially its record is sound and good having possession of unencumbered property of considerable value. The auxiliary is large and active and aided the Congregation in its progress. Despite this success as a separate entity the membership of Schaarei Zedek Congregation has evidenced its willingness to submerge their individuality for communal good. Their officers were sufficiently altruistic to resign and relinquish their positions so that they would not stand in the way. The Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation will meet this coming week to accept this proposal. We anticipate they will wholeheartedly welcome this attitude expressed by Schaarei Zedek. The merger will do much to strengthen both institutions, offer a better opportunity to serve the youth and to promulgate communal betterment. RESCUE IN ACTION The anouncement that over a period of six months the record sum of S20.600.000 was spent by the constituent organizations of the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees, Overseas Needs and Palestine constitutes news of major significance at this time. Without exhortation or emotional phrases, this impressive figure underscores the vastness of the rescue tasks confronting American Jews in the year of transition from oppression to liberation overseas. That the agencies of the United Jewish Appeal, which carry on programs of relief and rehabilitation overseas, of reconstruction and settlement in Palestine, and of refugee adjustment in the United States, have spent in one-half year approximately S8.700.000 more than in the same period of the preceding year indicates not only increasing responsibilities but also increasing opportunities for saving and rebuilding the lives of our fellow-Jews in many parts of the world. The victorious progress of the United Nations' armies and the establishment of the War Refugee Board have broadened the avenues of escape for Jewish refugees in Nazi-dominated Europe and paved the way for greater rescue action on the part of American Jewry through the instrumentality of the United Jewish Appeal and its agencies. The fact that the Joint Distribution Committee has just assigned a special representative to Rome is merely one indication of how the increase in the area of liberation is bringing about a comparable increase in the rehabilitation activities supported through the United Jewish Appeal. The one outstanding example of how intervention by the U. S. Government is opening the doors of hope for Jews under Nazi domination is the growing flow of emigration from the Balkans to the Jewish homeland in Palestine. The J. D. C. is providing the funds for transportation while the United Palestine Appeal supports the integration and adjustment of the newcomers following their arrival in Palestine. For those who reach the United States, the National Refugee Ser vice is required to extend various forms of assistance. Today, as many hundreds of thousands of Jews face annihilation in various parts of Nazi-controlled Europe, American Jews have fully recognized that immediate large-scale measures must be taken to save a maximum number of them. This they have demonstrated through their generous response thus fkxr to the $32,000,000 nationwide campaign of the United Jewish Appeal, of which this community through the Greater Miami Federation contributed substantially. Sonic vagrant facto from a cluttered desk Abe Ganms. erudite director of the Bureau of Jewish Education, objects to our use of the word "vagrant. < There's no such thing as a vagrant fact, says Abe. According to Webster, vagrant means "moving about without certain obt ject." Brother, that defines the facts that wander into this column We hope you took the time out to read Dick Gustadt's lengthy letter that appeared last week. It was well worth the tune Bill Boxerman in his column in the Jacksonville Community Council Commentator differentiates between a Christian and a Gentile. A Christian, Bill explains, follows the precepto of Jesus. He therefore finds it impossible to be a purveyor of hate against the Jew.-. Anti-Semitism u repugnant to him. A Gentile, according to our old friend Webster, is a "Heathen or Pagan." We wonder if those landlords are aware of whom they are inviting to live in their apartments when they advertise "Gentiles Only" Orchids to Edith Ballard for the fine, crusading spirit she has shown in her column in the Miami Daily News This office continues to get requests for reprints of Phil Wylie's "Off My Chest" which appeared six months ago in the News. The latest letters are from Boston. Minnesota, and a sailor somewhere at sea "Men Must Hate," by Sigmund Livingston, continues to arouse much interest and comment. A week ago this book was the subject of the radio forum of the Miami Round Table on WIOD. George J. Talianoff of this office participated and did a fine job One of our frequent visitors who helps to pass the time of day is a selfproclaimed Nazi. The reason for his calls are still a mystery. Perhaps, he's trying to get us to join the Bund. LAUDERDALE ELECTS OFFICERS FOR 44-45 At the annual congregational meeting on May 15. of Temple Emanu-EI of Ft.

Food and medical supplies for these packages are being obtained in the Near East and Palestine. The Jewish Agency for Palestine, which receives its funds from the United Palestine Appeal, is cooperating with the Joint Distribution Committee in this phase of its far-flung relief and rehabilitation program. The Unite/1 Jewish Appeal must raise $32,000,000, true year so thai its constitutent agencies—the Joint Distribution 1 Committee, the United Palestine Appeal and the National Refugee Service-—may meet larger opportunities for rescue and reconstruction. • AS PRODUCTION HEAD MRS.

BURDINE'S BUYS MORE BROWARD FRONTAGE Burdine's department store has purchased an additional 50-foot tract adjoining the building site it recently bought on Andrews avenue in Fort Lauderdale. The new acquisition gives Burdine's a total frontage of 235 feet on their Fort Lauderdale site. Post-war development of a modern department store is planned. London (JTA)—The mass-extermination of Jews in Europe, especially the present anti-Jewish drive in Hungary, has reached a point where not only the Nazis but the entire German nation and the German General Staff, must be held responsible, it was stated here by Brendan Bracken, British Minister of Information. He emphasized that "when the day of reckoning comes, the German General Staff will be first to be dealt with." "Not the 'flying bombs.' but the tragedy of the Hungarian Jews has been the main occupation of the government during the last two weeks," Bracken said. "I cannot exaggerate the brutality of the persecution. Nor can the public in this country forget the atrocities. There is a Quisling government in Hungary which will be held responsible for the crimes againt the Jews and for the setting up of abbatoirs to exterminate the victims. This is the biggest scandal in the history of human crimes. Earlier in the week Foreign Secretary Eden, speaking in the House of Commons, presented a very gloomy picture of the position of the Jews in Hungary and of the possibilities of saving them from annihilation. "I greatly regret to report that there are strong indications that the German and Hungarian authorities have begun the barbarous deportations of Jews in the course of which many of them have been killed," he told the House. "Unfortunately," he continued "there are no signs to show that the repeated declarations of His Majesty's government and of other governments of the United Nations, of their intention to punish the instigators and the perpetuators of the frightful crimes have moved the German government and its Hungarian accomplice to allow the departure of even a small proportion of victims or abate the persecution." The principal hope of saving the Jews of Hungary is a speedy victory, Mr. Eden emphasized, when asked whether the United Nations are taking any further steps to prevent the total extermination of Hungarian Jewry. Queried whether it is true that of 400.000 deported Hungarian Jews about 100,000 have been slain, Eden replied that he would rather not give any figures since exact information was not available. lOfi C*i .*'!.

JEWISH ISSUES Differences of opinion are developing within the leadership of the American Jewish Conference Though the Chicago session of the Conference has been postponed, opinion among its leaders remains divided on the issue of whether or not the Conference should extend the scope of its activities into the field of American Jewish problems Henry Monsky opposes such an extension since it would bring the American Jewish Conference into conflict with Jewish groups doing anti-defamation work, or conducting relief work, or engaged in other activities concerning the international American Jewish scene Dr. Stephen S. Wise and Louis Lipsky are for such an extension They find tinprogram of the American Jewish Conference, as it stands at present, too limted since it is restricted to the resolutions on Palestine Strongly supporting Monsky's view that the Conference may face a bitter battle should it try to widen its program on the domestic front is Judge Morris Rothenberg He believes that before taking any decision on this subject, tin Conference must come to an understanding with tinexisting Jewish organizations in America which have been doing this kind of work for years Otherwise, he wains, internal opposition may develop within the Conference itself The issue may or may not come up before the forthcoming session of the Conference when it takes place, but the administrative committee of the Conference is. in the meantime, concerned about it of a number of high officals in the State Department Meanwhile.

A group of Miami area men I were commissioned ensigns in the I naval reserve at the first graduation ceremony of the Navy's Inew school of indoctrination reIcently at Camp Macdonough, Pittsburgh, N. Y. I They include Bernard AppleIbaum, 8712 Harding avenue. Milami Beach; George Harry BernIstein, son of Mrs. S. G. Bernstein, 11211 Meridian avenue, Miami IBeach; Herbert J.

Mrs. Leo Eisenstein, of Miami Beach, received several letters from her brother. Boo Gross, who is a member of the Armed Forces, and participated in the invasion of France. He sent her a two franc note, currency in which he received his pay, and known as "invasion money." He expressed much appreciation for the packages received, adding that they raised the morare of all of the men, and broke tne monotony of their rugged and tough going. In one of his letters, he wrote: The Greater Miami ArmyNavy Committee wants interesting letters received from those in service. These will be used for publication on the Service Parade Page of The Jewish Floridian, the daily press and national publications. Send original or copies of these letters to the Army-Navy Committee. Box 2973, Miami 18. Fla. These will be returned if requested. Make it possible for everyone to know where our servicefolk are, what they are seeing and doing. Navy pharmacist's mate, 3rd class, Eugene Weiss, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jeremiah Weiss of 639 West Avenue, has been graduated from the training command field medical school for hospital corpsmen. Graduates of this school are trained thoroughly in medical field tactics, and after graduation they are assigned to marine corps combat units going into the field. COMMANDER METHUSELAH We have asked everyone, and no one seems to be able to name an older Britisher on active service than Acting Wing Commander Lionel Cohen, veteran of four wars. At 68. he has iusl received the Distinguish Flying oss „ Wh, kn ws what he'll do at 70? Customarily, the RAF ground:; a man when he reaches 39. No attempt has been made to ground Wing Commander Cohen, who in his duties, has flown on 45 operational .sorties as air-gunner and observer. Can't keep him on the ground. In 1941. when he was out in search of shipping off Norway, Cohen's plane was chased by three Messerschmidt 110's and a Junker 88. He thought nothing of it. Couldn't compare with his experiences in the Boer War, for example, or the Matabelc campaign of 1893, or World War I, in which he fought as a captain. No. sir. Corp. Nathan Mayers. Miami Senior High Graduate, spent a recent furlough with his parents. Mr. and Mrs. M. Mayerovitz, 636 N. W. 5th Avenue, from his base at Camp Haan, Cal. Tech. 5th Gr. Lester H. Gleichenhaus. son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Gleichenhaus, 146 N. E. 16th Street is a clerk in the investigation section of a regiment of military police in Naples. Irwin Berger. ASM 2/c. son of Mr. and Mrs. Abe Berger. 1234 S. W. 4th Street, has been promoted in rank from 3rd class Ketty officer. Stationed at the Ielbourne, Fla., Naval Air Station, Berger is a leading member of the base's soft ball team, which is composed of officers and enlisted men. YOCK Every day we learn something. Today we found out what a "yock" is. It's neither animal, vegetable, nor mineral. It's the show-business term for bellylaugh. And one of the principal yockgetters in the business is Pfc. Dickie Cohen, now slaying them in the Air Forces' vaudeville revue in St. Louis with his ventriloquism act. Dick's been in the business since he was 8. Says he was "raised in a backstage trunk." His dummy, who used to be as big as himself, is Willie Gladstone. Dick and Willie toured with Major Bowes units and USO Camp Shows before the two of them entered the service. Dick is supposed to be the youngest ventriloquist ever to make a professional appearance. Certainly he's the youngest ventriloquist in uniform. He's 19. And a yock man with a big future. Hy Coverman has written to his wife from France. He is a member of the Armed Forces, attached to the Infantry of the 30th Division, now in France. He writes that, while the weather is cold, they are kept very busy, and, in their brief respites, enjoy the beautiful country that comprises the invaded territory. Mrs. Coverman resides with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Adelman, 1421 N. W. 1st Street. Staff Sergeant Henry Magaran, 39, of New York City, a crew member of the celebrated Liberator "Blue Streak" which is now on a tour of industrial plants in the United States, holds the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal, six Oak Leaf Clusters, and a Presidential Unit Citation for the Ploesti oil fields mission. Sgt. Magaram has served as fall turret and tail gunner. "I'm feeling pretty good, thriving on the outdoor life. Living in fox holes dug in on the sides of fields, eating canned rations, working in a large camouflaged tent. Right now, it is raining, the first since we arrrived here, and we're all praying that our little trenches aren't flooded. We are still recovering from our channel crossing, which was pretty rugged, to put it mildly. Were we a sick bunch of men! The boys are all saying that they would rather stay here in France the rest of their life than go through another crossing like that one. And we had an easy trip compared to some of the outfits." • • "I'm afraid it will be quite some time before you, get a picture from me; there aren't many facilities over here for developing, and we can't send negatives home. However we have sent some in to be developed about a month ago, which we ought to get back one of these days, and when they do. I'll send you one. We have taken several pictures here lately, but they can't possibly get to you for at least a couple of months. I have lost some weight but don't know how much. I'm in fairly good condition, leading an outdoor life, getting plenty to eat and lots of fresh air and exercise, digging trenches, foxholes, etc. We are living in tents (pup tents, two to a tent), work in a large house, which we just moved into. It is a place rather hurriedly evacuated by the Boche, and there were plenty of souvenirs around. The envelope this is enclosed in is a German envelope left behind by some dead or retreating Nazi. This place was attacked and captured by paratroopers on D Day. We have a German gas mask and helmet on the wall, and there are assorted bullet holes in the walls, and they left behind a hell of a lot of personal stuff like games, stationery, pictures, besides bullets, etc. I am still in the rear echelon, though the word "rear" may be misleading, since I haven't seen such a thing over here.' • • • Just this minute got paid, in invasion currc^y, in francs. I'm sending you enclosed a two franc note, equivlant to about four cents. Looks like stage money, and very pretty. We don't have much to spend it on over here, and I'm going to send most of my pay home to save. Right now I'm going to see if I can run some of it up into some more blackjack." WOUNDED IN ACTION Cpl.

PAGE EIGHT 9-JmisiiflcrldHan 'NAI B'RITH NOTES -byMARX FEINBERG As per advance notices the bond party given at the Sea Gull Pool and Cabana Club on the night of July 4th was a tremendous success. Over 1000 members and their guests attended the affair which was blessed with a gorgeous moonlit night and cool ocean breezes. The water show and sports were unusual for this time of year and we express our deep gratitude to the Evans Family for their generosity in donating the facilities of the Club. We would be remiss if we did not extend our thanks to the committee in charge of this affair for the splendid and complete arrangements which were prepared for the Lodge. A bouquet to Nat Roth, Mrs. G. Blatt, Jennie Gordon (if I may be personal). Harry Gordon. Sol Goldstrom, and the host of others who gave unselfishly of their time so that this affair could be the success that it was. Thanks also to Lee Mason who did a splendid job on the bond auction. Besides the advance sales, over $75,000 in bonds were sold without interfering with the pleasures of the guests. We will look forward to other affairs such as this in the future. You have probably received by now the card from the secretary notifying you of the membership boat ride on the night of July 25. It will be Impossible to accommodate the entire membership so if vou are paid up through 1944. please call in the B'nai B'rith office and make your reservations.

Mr. Schreiber, a former Detroit film exhibitor, is now a resident of Palm Island, and derives his cognomen due to the fact that he gives away a silver dollar to anyone purchasing a war bond. He donates his time freely to any organization or person who is engaged in campaigning lor bond sales. He is known to be a genuine altruist and we are glad to have him as a part ol our community. In furtherance of the above, you should know now that the Fifth War Loan was a success throughout the nation and particularly in the Lodge. The total figures will reveal that we have exceeded our quota of $2.000.000 and consequently two sub-chasers will be named, one for Miami and one for Miami Beach. The names will be chosen later and we are attempting to have a representative ol the Lodge, together with city officials attend the dedication and launching of these two vessels when they are ready. This type of work creates the finest good I will for our people, which is especially important at this time. Thi sactivity is encouraged by the A. D. L. since a better understanding between the Jew and non-Jew will be abetted by the creation of good will. The next regular meeting is to be held at Beth David on the night of July 11. This column goes to press before the report can be made on this meeting. Therefore, next weeek I will attempt to point out the highlights. The tentative arrangements' are of a cultural nature sponsored by the Sigma Kho Chapter of the A. Z. A.

The dance will be held in the patio between the two buildings and a weiner roast will be held out on the grounds of the Y. This weiner roast sounds like a swell idea and the affair will pobably be a pleasant one. The Service Men's Dances have been very well attended by both Service Men and Service Women, as well as Victory Belles. For those of you who do not know, the Victory Belles are the girls who have been good enough to attend the dances and serve as dancing partners to the Service Men in this area. Men from Miami Beach and the various camps and stations throughout the Greater Miami area have attended these weekly dances in great numbers. I personally have been informed by several of them that they feel more at home at the Y than they do at any other place down here and that the Saturday night dances held by us are more enjoyable than those given by other organizations. Forum The title of the Y Forum held last Saturday evening was "Wartime Marriages." Harry Gerstein, chairman of the Forum, announces that meetings will be held only once a month during the summer. Please watch this column for the announcement of the time and place of the next discussion to be held bv this group. This is one of the finest projects for the adult membership of the Y that has been offered in some time. Horn* Camp The Y Home Camp is progressing beautifully this year.

JEWISH REFUGEE GETS

New York (JTA) Sergeant
Richard F. Stern, a forty-five-
year-old Jewish refugee from
Germany serving in the Ameri-
can Army in Italy who cooly
tricked a halt-dozen Nazis into
surrender in January by telling
them in German they were sur-
rounded, was awarded the Silver
Star for gallantry this week by
the War Department.
Stern, a textile printer, was
driven from Germany in 1939.
A veteran of the Germany Army
in the first world war, he had
received the Iron Cross. Twice
he was forced to run the gaunt-
let of Storm Troopers armed with
whips.
He decided he could retaliate
upon the Nazis in only one way,
by coming to the United States
and joining an army that could
wipe them out. In October. 1942.
he entered th< Army. Early last
pus. the army told nim he could
have an honorable discharge be-
cause he was over thirty-eight.
He refused. It would interfere

stead, by request, he was sent
overseas.

London (JTA)With 600 refu-
gees transferred from the Mir-
anda refugee camp in Spain to
a "temporary refugee shelter" in
North Africa, the Spanish auth-
orities are now rearranging the
camp, which is in northern Spain,
to accommodate hundreds of
other refugees who are expected
to flee from France and Belgium
across the Pyrenees, it was learn-
ed here.
The new influx of illegal refu-
gees is expected in connection
with the new wave of terror
which the German authorities
have now started throughout
France as a result of the progress
of the Allied invasion. Jews are
being rounded up in all parts of
France and house-to-house
searches for hidden Jews are be-
ing conducted on a twenty-four
hour basis.
It was revealed here than an
agreement between the UNRRA
and a number of governments
of Europe, including Russia, has
been drafted in London covering
the repatriation and resettlement
of the millions of people who
lost their homes when they be-
came refugees, deportees or
forced laborers. Officers of the
UNRRA here who are studying
the question estimate that there
are about 30,000,000 uprooted per-
sons who will be in need of re-
patriation and settlement.
Stockholm (JTA)King Gus-
tav of Sweden has personally in-
tervened with Admiral Horthy,
the Regent of Hungary, in behalf
of the Hungarian Jews, it was
learned here.
The king sent a cable last Fri-
day to Horthy urging him in the
name of humanity to use his
personal influence to save the
Jews of Hungary from further
persecution.

Sunday, July 23 at 1:15 p.m.
It will be the first Jewish pro-
gram broadcast from Italy since

GERMANS TRADE JEWS
FOR NAZI 111 SOLDIERS
Ankara, (JTA)An exchange
of Jews interned in Germany for
Germans interned in the Middle
East will take place via Turkey,
it was learned here. A group
of 282 Jews will be exchanged
by Germany for 111 Germans.
Both groups are expected to
reach Turkey within a few days.
The announcement does not
indicate the citizenship of the
Jews who will be exchanged.
Some time ago an exchange took
place between Palestine and
Germany under which Palestin-
ian Jews who had been interned
in Germany since the outbreak of
war were exchanged for Ger-
mans interned in Palestine.
Eliezer Kaplan, a member of
the executive board of the Jew-
ish Agency, arrived here from
Jerusalem in connection with
plans to rescue Jews from the
Balkan countries. David Schw-

who is now in Ankara, was call-
ed to Istanbul by the representa-
tive of the War Refugee Board
in Turkey in connection with re-
fugee rescue activities.

JEWISH PARTISANS ARE
FIRST TO ENTER MINSK
Moscow (JTA)Jewish parti-
sans were the first Jews to re-
turn this week to the recaptured
White Russian capital of Minsk,
all of whose Jews were either
murdered or deported during the
three years the Germans held
the city.
The Moscow press reports from
Minsk that hundreds of partis-
ans who operated in the Minsk
area during the German occu-
pation are now returning to the
city. Among these partisans are
many guerrillas who fled the
Byelorussion capital to avoid ex-
ecution or deportation.
The dispatch from Minsk con-
tains an eye-witness report of
the ghetto area there, confirm-
ing that no Jews were left in
I the city. "One district, which
was surrounded by a barbed-wire
fence was bare of life," the dis-
patch says. "This had been the
Jewish ghetto, the occupants of
which were all exterminated."

in collaborationist Dutch news-1
papers revealing that a special'

Jews. Reports reaching here sev- '
eral1 months ago estimated that.
',', 'i;1' tune, there were about
10.000 Jews hidden in the homes
of Dutch patriots.
A French underground news-
paper received here discloses
that a pro-Nazi mountain guide
recently betrayed to the Ger-
mans ten fugitive Jews whom he
had agreed to take across the
Pyrenees into Spain. The same
guide, the paper says, turned
three American officers over to
the Nazis.

ON THE WAY
Unanimous endorsement of the proposed merger by Con-
gregation Schaarei Zedek at a meeting of its membership last
week speaks for itself. It brings into sight the successful cul-
mination of some eight months efforts to effectuate a merger
with the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, from which it
divided about two years ago.
This action coming from the group who felt their sincerity
of purpose strong enough to make this break, shows a like sin-
cerity in taking this step to rejoin and consolidate. Moreso
is this action to be commended when evidencing the success
Schaarei Zedek made in its undertakings, now operating the
largest attended Talmud Torah in the area. Financially its
record is sound and good having possession of unencumbered
property of considerable value. The auxiliary is large and act-
ive and aided the Congregation in its progress. Despite this
success as a separate entity the membership of Schaarei Zedek
Congregation has evidenced its willingness to submerge their
individuality for communal good. Their officers were suffi-
ciently altruistic to resign and relinquish their positions so that
they would not stand in the way.
The Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation will meet this
coming week to accept this proposal. We anticipate they will
wholeheartedly welcome this attitude expressed by Schaarei
Zedek.
The merger will do much to strengthen both institutions, of-
fer a better opportunity to serve the youth and to promulgate
communal betterment.
RESCUE IN ACTION
The anouncement that over a period of six months the
record sum of S20.600.000 was spent by the constituent organi-
zations of the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees, Overseas
Needs and Palestine constitutes news of major significance at
this time. Without exhortation or emotional phrases, this im-
pressive figure underscores the vastness of the rescue tasks
confronting American Jews in the year of transition from op-
pression to liberation overseas. That the agencies of the United
Jewish Appeal, which carry on programs of relief and rehabili-
tation overseas, of reconstruction and settlement in Palestine,
and of refugee adjustment in the United States, have spent in
one-half year approximately S8.700.000 more than in the same
period of the preceding year indicates not only increasing re-
sponsibilities but also increasing opportunities for saving and
rebuilding the lives of our fellow-Jews in many parts of the
world.
The victorious progress of the United Nations' armies and
the establishment of the War Refugee Board have broadened
the avenues of escape for Jewish refugees in Nazi-dominated
Europe and paved the way for greater rescue action on the
part of American Jewry through the instrumentality of the Unit-
ed Jewish Appeal and its agencies. The fact that the Joint
Distribution Committee has just assigned a special representa-
tive to Rome is merely one indication of how the increase in
the area of liberation is bringing about a comparable increase
in the rehabilitation activities supported through the United
Jewish Appeal. The one outstanding example of how inter-
vention by the U. S. Government is opening the doors of hope
for Jews under Nazi domination is the growing flow of emigra-
tion from the Balkans to the Jewish homeland in Palestine.
The J. D. C. is providing the funds for transportation while the
United Palestine Appeal supports the integration and adjust-
ment of the newcomers following their arrival in Palestine. For
those who reach the United States, the National Refugee Ser
vice is required to extend various forms of assistance.
Today, as many hundreds of thousands of Jews face anni-
hilation in various parts of Nazi-controlled Europe, American
Jews have fully recognized that immediate large-scale meas-
ures must be taken to save a maximum number of them. This
they have demonstrated through their generous response thus
fkxr to the $32,000,000 nationwide campaign of the United Jew-
ish Appeal, of which this community through the Greater
Miami Federation contributed substantially.
Sonic vagrant facto from a
cluttered desk Abe Ganms.
erudite director of the Bureau
of Jewish Education, objects to
our use of the word "vagrant.
< There's no such thing as a vag-
rant fact, says Abe. According
to Webster, vagrant means "mov-
ing about without certain obt
ject." Brother, that defines the
facts that wander into this col-
umn We hope you took the
time out to read Dick Gustadt's
lengthy letter that appeared last
week. It was well worth the
tune Bill Boxerman in his
column in the Jacksonville Com-
munity Council Commentator
differentiates between a Chris-
tian and a Gentile. A Christian,
Bill explains, follows the pre-
cepto of Jesus. He therefore
finds it impossible to be a pur-
veyor of hate against the Jew.-.
Anti-Semitism u repugnant to
him. A Gentile, according to our
old friend Webster, is a "Heath-
en or Pagan." We wonder if
those landlords are aware of
whom they are inviting to live
in their apartments when they
advertise "Gentiles Only" .
Orchids to Edith Ballard for the
fine, crusading spirit she has
shown in her column in the Mi-
ami Daily News This office
continues to get requests for re-
prints of Phil Wylie's "Off My
Chest" which appeared six
months ago in the News. The
latest letters are from Boston.
Minnesota, and a sailor some-
where at sea "Men Must
Hate," by Sigmund Livingston,
continues to arouse much inter-
est and comment. A week ago
this book was the subject of the
radio forum of the Miami Round
Table on WIOD. George J. Tal-
ianoff of this office participated
and did a fine job One of
our frequent visitors who helps
to pass the time of day is a self-
proclaimed Nazi. The reason for
his calls are still a mystery. Per-
haps, he's trying to get us to
join the Bund.

ELECTION FRONT....
In fairness to the Republican Party please rememr*.
the Republican Nationalist Revival Committee has n '
nection with the official Republican Party Altho h aZ
are trying to use pressure on the regular Republicans ft!
Revivalists, who were collaborators of the American First Co
mittee, are not very happy with Mr. Dewey as a candidat *
Behind the Revivalists is Gerald K. Smith, as are oth
Semites They will be very active in this presidential "cnt
paign and will try to work in close connection with Fath
Coughlin's St. Sebastian Order They want to defeat R ?
velt, but are reluctant to support Dewey, so that they ,^
something of a spot They should be fearlessly exposed3 h
the Republican National Committeeand that, we understa i
will be done ... All of this reminds us to point out that the
Muncie. Ind., newspaper entitled "X-Ray" is the worst anti-
Semitic sheet published anywhere ... It is carrying on a cam-
paign against "The New Deal Rats and the Jews"
PALESTINE NEWS____
Don't be too surprised if the British government agrees to
the formation of a Jewish Army, into which some 20,000 Pal-
estine and stateless Jews will be put ... In the first world war
the Jewish Legion was finally formed in the last year of the war
... The Jewish Section of the International Workers' Order is
preparing to launch a great project in Palestine Watch for
the September issue of Digest and Review ... It will contain
a sensational article by Johannes Steel, under the title Th
Truth About Palestine" e
BIOGRAPHETTE____
Israel Mate is a little man of seventy-five who looks like
a miniature edition of the late Lord Reading Some sixty
years ago he came to this country from Riga with exactly noth-
ing in his pocket New he is the owner of the Ex-Lax Manu-
facturing Company ... But his real claim to fame lies in ha
many philanthropic activities for the revival of Hebrew liter-
ature and culture ... He was the closest friend of the kite
Reuben Brainin, and was associated with him in practically
every Hebrew project of importance during Brainin's lifetime
... He has donated many hundreds of thousands of dollars
for Hebrew literature and is unquestionably the greatest living
patron of Hebrew culture ... So the other day Israel Mate was
made an honorary member of the Hebrew Pen Club .
PIANO NOTES____
Remember we told you a couple of years ago to look out
for an up-and-coming young pianist named Eleanor Fine, then
a youngster of fifteen? This summer Eleanor .turned seven-
teen, is scheduled to play with the New York Philharmonic
Symphony Orchestra at Lewisohn Stadium Some years
ago, you may recall, there was quite a todo about an infant
prodigy of the piano, Ruth Slenczynski, who made her debut
at the age of eleven Nothing much had been heard of Ruth
of late, who was working hard preparing herself for a career
as a concert artist ... But now she has made the headlines
once moreby eloping, at nineteen, with her manager .
Then there is young Sonya Horowitz, who, if memory serves
us, is five or six or thereabouts Oscar Levant reports that
recently he asked Sonya whether, when she hears the piano
being played in another room, she can tell whether it's her
father or her grandfather who is playing Sonya nodded .
"I can always tell the difference," she declared, "because when
Grandpa plays the piano he always sings" Which goes
under the heading of Bright Sayings of Children, since Sonya's
daddy is piano virtuoso Vladimir Horowitz and her grandpa is
conductor Arturo Toscanini .
LITERARY DEPARTMENT____
Leonard Lyons reports that Emil Ludwig was a very much
puzzled man after his visit to Cuba ... In Havana he was the
guest of President Batista, who showed him his liblary, with
special emphasis on a complete set of Ludwig's works in Span-
ish translation "And I've read all thirty-one of them,'' the
Cuban President told the author What perplexes Ludwig is
the fact that, according to his own count, he has written only
twenty-nine books Fannie Hurst is considering becoming
an autobiographer and so is Mischa Elman Playwright
Rose Franken, working on her forthcoming Broadway offering
"Soldier's Wife," made it a point to have Martha Scott, who wfl
play the leading role, as her houseguestso that she could
study the actress' characteristics and mannerisms and wnte
the part to fit her exactly .
ABOUT PEOPLE____
If any of you were afraid this year's Democratic election
would lack the verve of past presidential campaigns, you may
rest easy now Charlie Michelson, who had attempted to
retire as the Democrat's publicity chief to take a well-earnea
rest, has been drafted back into harness ... Did you know
that Vera Menchik. world champion among women chess play-
era, was killed by a "robot" bomb in England last month? j
Her stater, Olga Rubery, also a noted chess player, *"K
by the same bomb Next time you hear the current hat }
Be Seeing You" remember this story ... Its composer, Irnng
Kahal, died a few year, ago. leaving his wife and children

I.J.A. FINDS PROVIDE FOOD PACKAGES FOR REFUGEES
RESPQHIBLE FDR
A scene in Teheran where parcels of food,
medicine and clothing are prepared for ship*
ment to refugees in Soviet Russia. In 1944 a
total of 300,000 packages of this kind will be
shipped to Allied, neutral and occupied terri-
tories by the Joint Distribution Committee with
funds provided by the United Jewish Appeal
for Refugees, Overseas Needs and Palestine.
Food and medical supplies for these packages
are being obtained in the Near East and Pales-
tine. The Jewish Agency for Palestine, which
receives its funds from the United Palestine Ap-
peal, is cooperating with the Joint Distribution
Committee in this phase of its far-flung relief
and rehabilitation program. The Unite/1 Jewish
Appeal must raise $32,000,000, true year so thai
its constitutent agenciesthe Joint Distribution1
Committee, the United Palestine Appeal and
the National Refugee Service-may meet larger
opportunities for rescue and reconstruction.

1.715.000 JEWS DIE IN
TWO GERMAN CAMPS
New York (JTA)More than
1,715,000 Jews have been put to
death in only two German "ex-
termination camps" within the
last two years, it has been estab-
lished by two non-Jewish relief
organizations in Switzerland, the
Geneva correspondent of the New
York Times reports.
The correspondent states that
the International Church Move-
ment Ecumenical Refugee Com-
mission with headquarters in
Geneva and the Refugee Com-
mittee of Zurich headed by Rev.
Paul Vought, have made public
figures showing that in the Nazi
"extermination camps" in Ausch-
witz and in Birkenau, both in
Upper Silesia, thousands of Jews
have been willed between April
1942 and April 1944.

London, (JTA)The commis-
sion appointed by the Polish Na-
tional Council to investigate the
causes of anti-Semitism in the
Polish Army has left for Scot-
land where the Polish armed
forces are stationed, it was an-
nounced here. It was explained
that the commission could not
leave any earlier because the
British observer who was to ac-
company the commission was de-
tained in connection with pre-
parations for the Allied invasion
of Europe.
BURDINE'S BUYS MORE
BROWARD FRONTAGE
Burdine's department store has
purchased an additional 50-foot
tract adjoining the building site
it recently bought on Andrews
avenue in Fort Lauderdale.
The new acquisition gives Bur-
dine's a total frontage of 235 feet
on their Fort Lauderdale site.
Post-war development of a mo-
dern department store is plan-
ned.
London (JTA)The mass-ex-
termination of Jews in Europe,
especially the present anti-Jew-
ish drive in Hungary, has reached
a point where not only the Nazis
but the entire German nation
and the German General Staff,
must be held responsible, it was
stated here by Brendan Bracken,
British Minister of Information.
He emphasized that "when the
day of reckoning comes, the Ger-
man General Staff will be first
to be dealt with."
"Not the 'flying bombs.' but
the tragedy of the Hungarian
Jews has been the main occupa-
tion of the government during
the last two weeks," Bracken
said. "I cannot exaggerate the
brutality of the persecution. Nor
can the public in this country
forget the atrocities. There is
a Quisling government in Hun-
gary which will be held respon-
sible for the crimes againt the
Jews and for the setting up of
abbatoirs to exterminate the vic-
tims. This is the biggest scandal
in the history of human crimes.
Earlier in the week Foreign
Secretary Eden, speaking in the
House of Commons, presented a
very gloomy picture of the po-
sition of the Jews in Hungary
and of the possibilities of saving
them from annihilation.
' "I greatly regret to report that
there are strong indications that
the German and Hungarian auth-
orities have begun the barbarous
deportations of Jews in the course
of which many of them have
been killed," he told the House.
"Unfortunately," he continued
"there are no signs to show that
the repeated declarations of His
Majesty's government and of
other governments of the United
Nations, of their intention to
punish the instigators and the
perpetuators of the frightful
crimes have moved the German
government and its Hungarian
accomplice to allow the departure
of even a small proportion of
victims or abate the persecution."
The principal hope of saving
the Jews of Hungary is a speedy
victory, Mr. Eden emphasized,
when asked whether the United
Nations are taking any further
steps to prevent the total exterm-
ination of Hungarian Jewry.
Queried whether it is true that
of 400.000 deported Hungarian
Jews about 100,000 have been
slain, Eden replied that he would
rather not give any figures since
exact information was not avail-
able.

JEWISH ISSUES
Differences of opinion are de-
veloping within the leadership of
the American Jewish Conference
. Though the Chicago session
of the Conference has been post-
poned, opinion among its lead-
ers remains divided on the issue
of whether or not the Conference
should extend the scope of its
activities into the field of Ameri-
can Jewish problems Henry
Monsky opposes such an exten-
sion since it would bring the
American Jewish Conference into
conflict with Jewish groups do-
ing anti-defamation work, or con-
ducting relief work, or engaged
in other activities concerning the
international American Jewish
scene Dr. Stephen S. Wise
and Louis Lipsky are for such
an extension They find tin-
program of the American Jewish
Conference, as it stands at pres-
ent, too limted since it is re-
stricted to the resolutions on Pal-
estine Strongly supporting
Monsky's view that the Confer-
ence may face a bitter battle
should it try to widen its pro-
gram on the domestic front is
Judge Morris Rothenberg .
He believes that before taking
any decision on this subject, tin
Conference must come to an un-
derstanding with tin- existing
Jewish organizations in America
which have been doing this kind
of work for years Otherwise,
he wains, internal opposition
may develop within the Confer-
ence itself The issue may
or may not come up before the
forthcoming session of the Con-
ference when it takes place, but
the administrative committee of
the Conference is. in the mean-
time, concerned about it .
of a number of high officals in
the State Department Mean-
while. I hear that Prof. Janus
Shotwell of the Carnegie Foun-
dation for Peace also has cer-
tain projects up his sleeve with
regard to solution of national
minority problems by the forth-
coming peace conference
Other groups are also busy
studying the effect which the
system of national minority
rights, introduced after World
War I, had on the actual situa-
tion ot the Jews in various coun-
tries in Europe Even the
World Jewish Congress is doubt-
ful as to whether the existing
system for the protection oi na-
tional minorities will do for |he
future And the World JeV-
ish Congress knows best .
Never did a delegate from Po-
land dare speak frankly at the
open sessions of the World Jew-
ish Congress m Geneva concern-
ing the position of the Jews in
his country And the same
was true with regard to dele-
gates from Rumania and other
countries winch "guaranteed" na-
tional minority rights to the Jews
. The international agreements
on ntkmiJ- minority rights turn-
ed iut to -lie ajj dead that when
the League ot Nations, in 1839,
ed down its department deal-
ing with protection of national
minorities, no interest) d Jewish
organization even bothered to
take note of it .
POST WAR PROJECTS
The plan suggested by Morris
D. Waldman, executive vice-
president of the American Jewish
Committee, that Jewish repres-
entatives at the forthcoming
peace conference should demand ;
an International Bill of Rights
instead of national minority |
rights, is attracting a good deal
of attention ... I understand
that the plan is now in the hands

cusses among other things the
reasons why immigrants from the
Old World have improved on be-
ing transplanted here He
also establishes the fact that Jews
in America have a tendency to
depart from rigid orthodoxy .
He speaks of the "waves of In-

rise in the United States" from

anti-Jewish societies that oper-

which Maurois comes is that isol-

one of his letters, he wrote:
The Greater Miami Army-
Navy Committee wants in-
teresting letters received
from those in service. These
will be used for publication
on the Service Parade Page
of The Jewish Floridian, the
daily press and national
publications. Send original
or copies of these letters to
the Army-Navy Committee.
Box 2973, Miami 18. Fla.
These will be returned if
requested. Make it possible
for everyone to know where
our servicefolk are, what
they are seeing and doing.
Navy pharmacist's mate, 3rd
class, Eugene Weiss, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Jeremiah Weiss of 639
West Avenue, has been graduated
from the training command field
medical school for hospital corps-
men. Graduates of this school
are trained thoroughly in medical
field tactics, and after graduation
they are assigned to marine corps
combat units going into the field.
COMMANDER METHUSELAH
We have asked everyone, and
no one seems to be able to name
an older Britisher on active ser-
vice than Acting Wing Com-
mander Lionel Cohen, veteran of
four wars. At 68. he has iusl
received the Distinguish Flying
. oss- Wh, knws what he'll
do at 70?
Customarily, the RAF ground:;
a man when he reaches 39. No
attempt has been made to ground
Wing Commander Cohen, who
in his duties, has flown on 45
operational .sorties as air-gunner
and observer. Can't keep him on
the ground. In 1941. when he
was out in search of shipping off
Norway, Cohen's plane was
chased by three Messerschmidt
110's and a Junker 88. He thought
nothing of it. Couldn't compare
with his experiences in the Boer
War, for example, or the Mata-
belc campaign of 1893, or World
War I, in which he fought as a
captain. No. sir.
Corp. Nathan Mayers. Miami
Senior High Graduate, spent a

at Camp Haan, Cal.
Tech. 5th Gr. Lester H. Glei-
chenhaus. son of Mr. and Mrs.

Irwin Berger. ASM 2/c. son of
Mr. and Mrs. Abe Berger. 1234
S. W. 4th Street, has been pro-
moted in rank from 3rd class
Ketty officer. Stationed at the

is composed of officers and en-

YOCK
Every day we learn something.
Today we found out what a
"yock" is. It's neither animal,
vegetable, nor mineral. It's the
show-business term for belly-
laugh.
And one of the principal yock-
getters in the business is Pfc.
Dickie Cohen, now slaying them
in the Air Forces' vaudeville
revue in St. Louis with his ven-
triloquism act.
Dick's been in the business
since he was 8. Says he was
"raised in a backstage trunk."
His dummy, who used to be as
big as himself, is Willie Glad-
stone. Dick and Willie toured
with Major Bowes units and USO
Camp Shows before the two of
them entered the service. Dick
is supposed to be the youngest
ventriloquist ever to make a pro-
fessional appearance. Certain-
ly he's the youngest ventrilo-
quist in uniform. He's 19. And
a yock man with a big future.
Hy Coverman has written to
his wife from France. He is a
member of the Armed Forces, at-
tached to the Infantry of the 30th
Division, now in France. He
writes that, while the weather is
cold, they are kept very busy,
and, in their brief respites, en-
joy the beautiful country that
comprises the invaded territory.
Mrs. Coverman resides with her
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nathan
Adelman, 1421 N. W. 1st Street.
Staff Sergeant Henry Maga-
ran, 39, of New York City, a crew
member of the celebrated Liber-
ator "Blue Streak" which is now
on a tour of industrial plants in
the United States, holds the Dis-
tinguished Flying Cross, the Air
Medal, six Oak Leaf Clusters,
and a Presidential Unit Citation
for the Ploesti oil fields mission.
Sgt. Magaram has served as fall
turret and tail gunner.
"I'm feeling pretty good, thriv-
ing on the outdoor life. Living
in fox holes dug in on the sides
of fields, eating canned rations,
working in a large camouflaged
tent. Right now, it is raining,
the first since we arrrived here,
and we're all praying that our
little trenches aren't flooded. We
are still recovering from our
channel crossing, which was
pretty rugged, to put it mildly.
Were we a sick bunch of men!
The boys are all saying that they
would rather stay here in France
the rest of their life than go
through another crossing like
that one. And we had an easy
trip compared to some of the
outfits." "I'm afraid it will
be quite some time before you,
get a picture from me; there
aren't many facilities over here
for developing, and we can't
send negatives home. However
we have sent some in to be de-
veloped about a month ago,
which we ought to get back one
of these days, and when they
do. I'll send you one. We have
taken several pictures here late-
ly, but they can't possibly get
to you for at least a couple of
months. I have lost some weight
but don't know how much. I'm
in fairly good condition, leading
an outdoor life, getting plenty
to eat and lots of fresh air and
exercise, digging trenches, fox-
holes, etc. We are living in tents
(pup tents, two to a tent), work
in a large house, which we just
moved into. It is a place rather
hurriedly evacuated by the
Boche, and there were plenty of
souvenirs around. The envelope
this is enclosed in is a German
envelope left behind by some
dead or retreating Nazi. This
place was attacked and captured
by paratroopers on D Day. We
have a German gas mask and
helmet on the wall, and there
are assorted bullet holes in the
walls, and they left behind a hell
of a lot of personal stuff like
games, stationery, pictures, be-
sides bullets, etc. I am still in
the rear echelon, though the word
"rear" may be misleading, since
I haven't seen such a thing over
here.' Just this minute
got paid, in invasion currc^y,
in francs. I'm sending you en-
closed a two franc note, equiv-
lant to about four cents. Looks
like stage money, and very pret-
ty. We don't have much to spend
it on over here, and I'm going
to send most of my pay home
to save. Right now I'm going
to see if I can run some of it
up into some more blackjack."

NOTES

MARX FEINBERG
As per advance notices the
bond party given at the Sea Gull
Pool and Cabana Club on the
night of July 4th was a tremen-
dous success. Over 1000 mem-
bers and their guests attended
the affair which was blessed
with a gorgeous moonlit night
and cool ocean breezes. The
water show and sports were un-
usual for this time of year and
we express our deep gratitude to
the Evans Family for their gen-
erosity in donating the facilities
of the Club. We would be re-
miss if we did not extend our
thanks to the committee in
charge of this affair for the
splendid and complete arrange-
ments which were prepared for
the Lodge. A bouquet to Nat
Roth, Mrs. G. Blatt, Jennie Gor-
don (if I may be personal). Har-
ry Gordon. Sol Goldstrom, and
the host of others who gave un-
selfishly of their time so that
this affair could be the success
that it was. Thanks also to Lee
Mason who did a splendid job on
the bond auction. Besides the
advance sales, over $75,000 in
bonds were sold without inter-
fering with the pleasures of the
guests. We will look forward
to other affairs such as this in
the future.
You have probably received
by now the card from the sec-
retary notifying you of the mem-
bership boat ride on the night of
July 25. It will be Impossible
to accommodate the entire mem-
bership so if vou are paid up
through 1944. please call in the
B'nai B'rith office and make
your reservations. If you are
not paid up. you may send your
checks to the same office along
with your request for reserva-
tions. This must be done im-
mediately if you plan to attend
this affair. If you have never

Dollar" Schreiber. Mr. Schreib-
er, a former Detroit film exhib-
itor, is now a resident of Palm
Island, and derives his cognomen
due to the fact that he gives
away a silver dollar to anyone
purchasing a war bond. He do-
nates his time freely to any or-
ganization or person who is en-
gaged in campaigning lor bond
sales. He is known to be a gen-
uine altruist and we are glad to
have him as a part ol our com-
munity.
In furtherance of the above,
you should know now that the
Fifth War Loan was a success
throughout the nation and par-
ticularly in the Lodge. The to-
tal figures will reveal that we
have exceeded our quota of $2.-
000.000 and consequently two
sub-chasers will be named, one
for Miami and one for Miami
Beach. The names will be chos-
en later and we are attempting
to have a representative ol the
Lodge, together with city offi-
cials attend the dedication and
launching of these two vessels
when they are ready. This type
of work creates the finest good
I will for our people, which is es-
pecially important at this time.
Thi sactivity is encouraged by
the A. D. L. since a better un-
derstanding between the Jew
and non-Jew will be abetted by
the creation of good will.
The next regular meeting is
to be held at Beth David on the
night of July 11. This column
goes to press before the report
can be made on this meeting.
Therefore, next weeek I will at-
tempt to point out the high-
lights. The tentative arrange-
ments' are of a cultural nature
sponsored by the Sigma Kho
Chapter of the A. Z. A. It is to
be presented in the nature of a
symposium conducted b ythree
ol the hoys an the subject ill
youth problems. Advance no-
tices indicate that this meeting
should be very interesting.

Service Men's Dane*
There will be a special feature
added to the Saturday night
Service Men's Dance at the Y
tomorrow night, July 15th. The
dance will be held in the patio
between the two buildings and
a weiner roast will be held out
on the grounds of the Y. This
weiner roast sounds like a swell
idea and the affair will pobably
be a pleasant one. The Service
Men's Dances have been very
well attended by both Service
Men and Service Women, as well
as Victory Belles. For those of
you who do not know, the Vic-
tory Belles are the girls who
have been good enough to at-
tend the dances and serve as
dancing partners to the Service
Men in this area. Men from Mi-
ami Beach and the various camps
and stations throughout the
Greater Miami area have attend-
ed these weekly dances in great
numbers. I personally have
been informed by several of
them that they feel more at home
at the Y than they do at any oth-
er place down here and that the
Saturday night dances held by
us are more enjoyable than those
given by other organizations.
Forum
The title of the Y Forum held
last Saturday evening was "War-
time Marriages." Harry Ger-
stein, chairman of the Forum,
announces that meetings will be
held only once a month during
the summer. Please watch this
column for the announcement of
the time and place of the next
discussion to be held bv this
group. This is one of the finest
projects for the adult member-
ship of the Y that has been of-
fered in some time.

ing beautifully this year. All
