A THANKSGIVING
MESSAGE
_
Thanksgiving! What shall we
be thankful for? Let us be thank-
ful for the privilege of living on
a soil saturated with the blood
of those who lived and died for
freedom of life, thought and be-
lief. Who, undismayed by the
apparently insurmountable vicis-
situdes, because of their su-
Creme and implicit faith in God
lazed the path for posterity.
Let us be thankful that we have
been granted the privilege of liv-
ing in an age that it replete with
scientific wonders, with epoch-
making events and the initiation
of movements that will leave
their indelible imprint upon the
pages of time. On this Thanks-
giving Day let us be thankful
and hopeful . thankful for
the initial steps that have already
been taken toward the goal of a
better understanding between na-
tion and nation, religion and re-
ligion; and hopeful that ours
may be the day in which the
goal of perfect harmony, love
and understanding and the readi-
ness to forgive the next man's
weaknesses may be realized, and
a sincere heartfelt resolution to
propagate those ideals which per-
meated the lives and actions* of
theee who are responsible for'
Thanksgiving Day, be ours on
this day.
Hodu ladoshem ki tov, ki lco-
lom chasdo. Give thanks unto
the Lord, for He is good, for His
loving kindness endureth forever.
Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld.
KIWANIS CLUB HAS
JEWISH GIRL ON
PROGRAM
At the regular weekly lun-
cheon of the Kiwanis Club, held
at Burdine's last Friday, one of
the quartet representing the
Highland Park School was a lit-
tle Jewish girl, Ethel Lazar. The
quartet has been trained by the
musical instructress of the High-
land Park School and has pleased
all those who have been fortun-
ate enough to hear them.
Thanksgiving Cheer
The Social Welfare Committee
of the Council of Jewish Women
headed by Mrs. P. Scheinberg
distributed fifty-odd baskets of
food and considerable clothing to
the needy families of Miami on
Wednesday. As this paper is go-
ing to press we are unable to
give a detailed account of the
work but suffice it to say that
many families will tomorrow en-
joy Thanksgiving where food
would probably otherwise not
have been.
Miami Y. M. H. A. Seeks
Amalgamation
We are advised that a propos-
al has been made by the Miami
Y. M. H. A. that it be amalga'
mated with the Men's Club of
Miami. Definite announcement
will be made next week.

A Thanksgiving Prayer
tit
V-JH, LORD! when on that dreary win-
ter's morn
The Mayflower anchored safe from ice
and storm,
The Pilgrims knelt, their voices rose in
prayer,
To seek thy guidance and protecting care.
For thou dost always hear the sincere
plea
That's raised in supplication unto Thee.
By thy omnipotent and- gracious aid
Thus was the bulwark of our nation laid.
Those nations are no more that forget
Thee.
Preserve us, Author of Our Liberty,
Let songs of thanks and praise the wel-
kin ring!
We magnify thy name, C; God, our king.
JEWISH FLORIDIAN
THEATRE PARTY
DRAWS CROWD
Miami Jewry was well repre-
sented last Tuesday night at the
Temple Theatre to see a per-
formance of "The Old Soak"
played by the Burton-Garrett
Players as the guests of the Jew-
ish Floridian.
Tickets for the performance
had been distributed to the heads
of the different Jewish organiza-
tions of the city for delivery to
their respective members. The
Beth David Sisterhood, Hadas-
sah, Council of Jewish Women,
the Zionist District, Friendship
League and other Jewish organi-
zations were there en masse.
Temple Israel, Beth David, B'nai
Brith and the Men's Club were
out in full regalia, and between
the acts all wings of Miami Jew-
ry fraternized with one another.
The Burton Garrett Players
outdid themselves in presenting
their performance. The story was
put over in masterful fashion,
the entire company evidently en-
tering into the spirit of good will
that pervaded the entire theatre.
The audience was quick to grasp
every witticism and every joke
and to applaud immediately when
the situation deserved it, which
was quite often during the eve-
ning.
Young and old were repre-
sented in the audience which
contained a number of non-Jews.
Quite a number were turned
away at the box office of the
theatre because the entire house
had been sold out and no more
room was available.
The Jewish Floridian takes this
means of expressing its sincere
thanks to the heads of the vari-
ous organizations and to all their
respective members for their
splendid support shown at the
theatre inhelping to make this
evening one of the banner eve-
nings of Miami Jewry; it wants
to assure the Jewry of Miami
that it will at all times do its
utmost to help make Miami Jew-
ry one great big loving family
irrespective of what wing of Mi-
ami Jewry they may be mem-
bers of.
Old acquaintances were once
again renewed and pledges made
to each other that they would
remain strangers to each other
no longer.
The Jewish Floridian hopes
shortly to be able to announce
to its readers another gala night
of entertainment where folks may
once again get together.
U. OF M. GLEE CLUB
IS BEING LED BY
JEWISH BOY
The University of Miami Glee
and Instrumental Club, led by
Aaron Farr, popular local Jew-
ish boy, announced its itinerary
for the initial trip of the club
this season. It will make its first
appearance in Homestead, De-
cember 7; Arcadia, December
11; Lakeland, December 12; Plant
City, December 13, and Sara-
sota, December 14. A much long-
er tour will be taken in March.
Aaron Farr, who is the son of
Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Farr, hails
originally from McKeesport, Pa.,
and early in life showed remark-
able musical talents. He is the
composer of the Miami High
School song, quite a number of
songs for Mercer College, a num-
ber of popular songs highly
lauded by Irving Berlin, Gene
Austen and others. He recently
composed the school song for
Beth David.
Accompanying him on the trip
as part of the Glee Club will be
Moe Albert, Gene Cohen, Irving
Lauton, Louis Cohen, all Jewish
boys, who will help make things
hum with the show which will
be billed as "A Cloudburst of
Melody."
A THANKSGIVING
MESSAGE
"I will wash my hands in innocency.
So will 1 compass Thine altar. O
God;
That 1 will make the voice of
Thanksgiving to be heard.
And tell of all Thy wondrous works.'
Psalm 26: 6-7.
If we study the history of the
United States in its nobler mo-
ments we shall find beneath and
behind all the experiences and
the wars, and the struggles, this
great unconscious life motif: "I
will wash my hands in inno-
cency."
The environment, the evolving
social consciousness, all show this
desire for clean hands to be the
inspiration for national Thanks-
giving.
America is not, as many think,
the land of opportunity for phys-
ical and material success; it is
above all else the opportunity
for Thanksgiving because of the
reflection that life is worth while,
is enchantingly beautiful with
clean hands as the offering on
the altar of God.
Young folks with a mistaken
idea of freedom, intoxicated with
youth but not always with wis-
dom, do not yet know that the
Thanksgiving is the highest of-
fering on the altar of the nation
vif \>ui- by the hands bf hnw
cency.
The Jew should be as he was,
an example of the meaning of
the holiness of life. What did
not the Jew suffer to compass
the altar of God. The Jew is as
sensitive as any other to the
pleasures of life, yet would he
pluck out pleasure from his
breast though his heart were at
the root, if that pleasure inter?
fered with clean-handed and
clean-hearted worship at the altar
of his God.
Trained in Jewish ideals and
American life, let us lay on the
altar of our country the true
Thanksgiving offering and appre-
ciation for the ethical ideals of
our glorious land. In this spirit
let us enjoy this day and all days
to come.
Rabbi Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan.
COSMETOLOGISTS OF
GREATER MIAMI
ORGANIZE
Last Tuesday evening a meet-
ing of local cosmetologists and
hairdressers was formed and offi-
cers were chosen. Mr. William
Gravatt was elected president;
Mrs. Nora Davis, vice president;
Mr. Ed Wolfe of the Etta Beau-
ty Shop and well known in lo-
cal fraternal circles, was chosen
secretary; Mr. William Knot! was
elected treasurer.
The corporate name chosen
was "The Hairdressers' and Cos-
metologists' Association of Mi-
ami and Vicinity." The purpose
of the association, as stated by
its officers, was to assure the Mi-
ami public fair and competent
treatment and to prevent any un-
due advantage being taken of
residents or tourists, and to also
insure that only competent and
capable operators were employed
in the beauty parlors of the city.

THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN

The Belly-Puncher
By Erwin Muscovich
The Belly-puncher, the why
lid wherefore of whom shall
hereinafter set forth, is to
irrow a phrase recently coined
r the biologists, a specimen of
jiergent evolution. Just as new
ivironmental conditions bring
bout changes in the organisms
ependent upon them, so has the
American environment evolved a
lew type of Jew.
Like many others of that grow-
v,i band of students to whom a
Ihange of environment is neces-
lary if they are not to be stulti-
led in academic halls of learning
sought to exchange, for a sum-
mer, the freshness of a Western
allege for my habitual haunts in
In Eastern university. Summer
then found me in the Western
netropolis which is graced by
ic University of Chicago, devot-
,_ig my mornings to the study
f)f books and my afternoons to
their sale. My knowledge of Ju-
jaica led me to specialize in that
5eld. I used to take the inter-
iirban buses running out of Chi-
cago to such Indiana communi-
. as Gary, Hammond and
,. siting and other outlying vil-
,ages. Walking down the main
business street, I used to pick
Dut some undoubtedly Jewish
firm. I usually managed to pick
jp sufficient information about
;he merchants of the vicinity to
prevent my approaching some
Italian in the hopes of selling him
Jraetz' History of the Jews, in
.ix volumes, at a wonderful bar-
gain. I must confess that this,
too, happened often enough;
[though I can recall no Italian dis-
courteous enough to laugh be-
cause he was offered some Ju-
laica.
In this fashion I met the belly-
Ipuncher at his best; stalked him
lin his lair, as it were, by trying
Ito sell him some Jewish cultural
{matter in his place of business.
[Be it recorded that my rather
[ingenious plan of financing my-
[self succeeded, so that I was able
[to observe him with amusement
I rather than with bitterness.
He may be seen any afternoon
[around three o'clock, during the
lull of the business day, stand-
ing, or rather, leaning, against
the entrance to his store. In the
(corner of his mouth a cigar, or
what was one, pitched at an in-
[clination of some sixty degrees
toward the heavens. His eyes
follow the passers-by, paying
particular attention to the ankles
of the fair ones. His hair is thin-
ning, and his forehead is en-
croaching on regions once lux-
uriant. One of his arms, stretch-
ed above his head, is the stay
wherewith his body is supported
against the impressive glass of
his modern 'front windows. The
other is quite unconsciously, but
conspicuously, placed against his
already protruding belly, slightly
to one side. The fingers, radiating
out from the palm, seem to em-
brace severally and collectively
that portion of his anatomy. A
thumb, inserted in a conveniently
placed vest pocket, offers the
support for that customary po-
sition with a minimum expendi-
ture of energy.
The hand rises in a casual
wave. An acquaintance has pass-
ed. It resumes its place. The fin-
gers play a varying and spas-
modic tattoo against the belly.
The bahoviorist must turn intro-
spectionist. It is after dinner,
business is fair, there is the
home, the car, and of course, the
wife and baby. That little in-
vestment made last year has ev-
ery prospect of yielding a tre-
mendous return. Weren't there
rumors to the effect that a car
line would be built right past his
,lot? Up shoots his handbut
this time with energy, with pre-
cision. His stomach is momen-
tarily drawn in. One's visual fo-
cus is shifted from the vest to
the smile which wreathes his
face. The eyes are casting benev-
olent good will in the direction
of a passing figure whose sure
stride befits the neat blue uni-
form which clothes it. Police
Captain Connor. Fine chap.
Friendly. Very useful acquaint-
ance in a pinch. As the object of
the salute passes, back goes the
hand to its perch, but now with
a rapid tattoo, as though to
awaken about his equatorial re-
gions some sympathetic response
to a weighty stimulus. It is no
little honor, surely, to be singled
out of the Jewish community,
with a few other choice souls, as
a- prospect for membership in the
local Masonic lodge. And he
would be admitted. He would
not be embarrassingly blackballed
as Sid Bernstein had been six
years before. The Jews had been
undesirable then. Their growing
economic importance in the city
had rendered them much less so
now. At thoughts of this tri-
umphthe fingers make a posi-
tive caress of the stomach as in
loving satisfaction.
He is Jewish. Babbitt does not
mean him, for while Babbitt's
stupidities are his stupidities, he
has a few of his own which Bab-
bitt does not share. These arise
out of the fact that his very
Jewishness presents problems
which he neither perceives, com-
prehends, nor solves. As we pic-
ture him, he is from the prov-
inces. There he is confronted, as
a result of contacts with Gen-
tiles, with particular problems
which the cloak-and-suitcr or
shoe merchant of New York
does not have occasion to face.
Nor may we underestimate the
extent of these problems in the
individual and communal life of
American Jewry, where blind ef-
fort takes the place of intelligent
dealing. The belly-puncher is in
the peculiar position of many of
his kind who are assimilating
American life with all its objec-
tionable superficialities. He is a
member of a race temporarily
and geographically transcendent,
in the sense that he has time and .
space attachments which, if
heeded, should effectively broad-
en his interests and his sphere
of activities. The neglect of the
mental and historical factors of
his origin, development, and so-
cial status leads him to over-em-
phasize ineffective and unimpor-
tant aspects of life in a new en-
vironment. In his desire to get
away from one set of group lim-
itations, he is placing himself di-
rectly under the sway of another
set of group limitations. If they
are not those of the narrow vi-
sion of the Ghetto, they are
those of the narrower vision of
Main Street. To the intellectual
such a change, which loses the
spiritual qualities of racial tradi-
tions, is abhorrent. Only the Bel-
ly-puncher could be satisfied
and he is. The ineffectiveness of
his adjustments is apparent to ev-
eryone, including, one suspects,
the Gentile for whose approval
they are being made. They are
not apparent to himself.
I entered the store of such a
one during the course of a visit
to some small town. The propri-
etor was at the moment being
solicited by representatives of the
United Palestine Appeal. While
I waited unobtrusively, he de-
livered a harangue on the sub-
ject of Judaism, Nationalism, Zi-
onism et al. I %'J
"Now, listen," he was saying,
"what is the use of all this fuss
about Zionism? We are contented
here. Do you expect me to move
my store to Palestine to sell
pants to a bunch of old-fash-
ioned fogies with long curls? If
I've got to give money, there's
the hospital we're building here.
We can use all our money right
here in our own town. There's
no use talking old-fashioned no-
tions about Judaism, Zionism,
and that stuff to me. That's good
enough for Europe where they
don't know any better. I have my
own notions about them. Do you
want to see my flag? Here it is!"
And taking a dollar bill out of
his pocket, he waved it under
the nose of his hearers. "That,"
he continued, "is what counts
here, and not a lot of crazy
dreams and ideas that are a hun-
dred years behind the times."
Expostulations on the part of
the solicitors were cut short by
a pronouncement which ended
their hopes even as it did mine.
"There's no use talking, gen-
tlemen," he said impatiently, with
a sort of rude finality: "You're
only wasting your breath. It's
getting late, and I've just re-
minded myself that I have to go
to Shul. I've got Yahrzeit."
A Conservative View of
Jewish Radicalism
By Peter Wiernik
We have invited Mr. Wiernik, the
outstanding Jewish journalist, author
and thinker, whose critical attitude
towards radicalism is pronounced, to
give our readers a clear definition of
his views. The following outline,
though brief and in humorous vein,
states the case squarely and does full
justice to the writer.Editor.
The propounder of the query:
What would happen if an irre-
sistible force should meet an im-
movable body, ought to have
made a study of Jewish radical-
ism. The answer which, accord-
ing to tradition, he received, that
the result would be a heterogen-
eous conglomeration of incom-
prehensible incongruities, could
not satisfy anybody, not even
those vaguely emotional radicals
whose sfate of mind those four
"jaw-breakers" come near describ-
ing, if such feat is at all possi-
ble.
That irresistible force which
resists everything seems to be a
part of the Jewish mind, espe-
cially typical of the East-Euro-
pean or Russian Jew, whose re-
bellious spirit received a peculiar
twist from contact with the Slav-
ic mind. One would have to go
back seven centuries, to the Mon-
gol conquest and the resulting
social and economic backward-
ness, to the presistence of autoc-
racy and semi-socialistic land-
tenure down to our own times,
to understand why intellectual
Russia was always more radical,
more susceptible to absorbing so-
cialist doctrine than the "intelli-
gentzia" of Western countries.
Russia needed a revolution, need-
ed it very badly, and the emi-
grant who is ever loath to ad-
mit that he comes from inferior
surroundings, is naturally insist-
ent that a revolution would be
equally as good everywhere else.
And so we have that radical-
ism in the form of socialism in
its various ramifications, spread
out over a large part of our
world of activity, shading off
from red communism on the ex-
treme left, through left and right
socialism, turning the nationalis-
tic corner with the socialists-ter-
ritorialists, descending, or ascend-
ing, through the left and the
right wings of Poale Zionism in-
to the camp of general Zionism,
almost touching the edge of the
Mizrachi movement. Even in mid-
dle class life the radical bent is
clearly apparent.
Those general confessions of
belief or of adherence to idealis-
tic concepts of what the world
ought to be, must however not
be taken very seriously. By a
strange coincidence, which to my
mind has a profound significance,
this world, which seems to be-
come all socialistic, is also, and
has been for many centuries, al-
most all Christian. Only in our
swiftly moving times decades
will bring changes which in slow-
moving generations it took al-
most milleniums to accomplish.
As Christianity was spreading, it
gradually shed its purely Jewish
principles with the aid of which
it conquered the world, and be-
came almost pagan. In the pres-
ent time socialism relinquishes
more and more its true Marxian
severity and thoroughness the
nearer it gets to power or the
longer it holds on to it. It is
becoming capitalistic even in
Moscow, and in countries which
stand higher, the election of an
Ebert as President of Germany
or the elevation of a MacDonald
to the premiership of Great Brit-
ain affected the economic struc-
ture of those countries much less
than our country would be af-
fected by the election to the
presidency of a Bryan or a La
Follette.
The analogy is even more
strange, or more significant, when
we turn our attention to the ori-
gin, or originators, of the two
movements. The bearer of the
Marxian message for the last two
generations is astonishingly simi-
lar to the propangandist of Chris-
tianity for the first two or three
centuries A. D. They were both
detached, if we do not want to
use the harsher word, renegades,
from the Jewish camp. Each of
them apparently conquered the
world as an irresistible force
spreading outward, and each of
them left behind an immovable
body, of apparently small dimen-
sions, which remained adamant
to all the blandishments of a new
interpretation of its hoary prin-
ciples.
When the spread of Christian-
ity began to assume large pro-
portions, the time soon came
when "The Greeks began to
murmur against the Hebrews."

the number of Hebrews who
turned aside, or back, on a road
which could not have led in any
other direction than to that of
the parental immovable body.
One must be deaf not to hear
that same "murmur" in the radi-
cal camps of today, and blind
not to see in its results the turn-
ing, in increasing numbers, of
Jewish radicals in the direction
of our nationalism.
When we last hear of the
"Ebionites," the ultra-Jewish sect
in early Christendom, they were
not popular among either Chris-
tians or Jews. The ultra-Jewish
socialist has, and deserves, more
luck, for his turning to nation-
alism is a bolder defiance of his
new faith, despite the obstinacy
with which he clings to its shad-
ow. Therein lies the merit of
radical nationalism among the
Jews. It is a form of repentance,
a search for redemption; its ef-
fort to continue the struggle in
the Jewish camp may be sincere,
but it has taken itself definitely
out of that outward stream of
c o s m o p o li tan destructiveness,
which changes while it seeming-
ly engulfs the world and may yet
turn to plague its ancestors, as
Christianity did when it became
full grown andun-Christian.
And now the riddle at the be-
ginning of the article can be
solved much clearer than it could
be done with the quoted sesqui-
pedalian verbiage. The irresisti-
ble force is a sham, to start with,
and at any rate it is centrifugal,
running away from the immova-
ble body from which it origi-
nated. When it turns back no-
body is so foolish as to consider
it irresistible. Continuous change
has yielded to the eternal veri-
ties, supreme faith has triumph-
ed over revolution, marvelous
endurance has demonstrated that
salvation lies in obedience to law,
not in suspension, repeal or de-
fiance of law. The immovable
body may seem as small, or
smaller than ever, but if we con-
sider what it has sent out, what
it has resisted and whom it had
survived, the only force which is
truly irresistible is latent with-
in it.

streaming along with the

Hi of usmen who, somehow,
their hold on life, and from
leath whose feet the earth has
melted away, and who stand
a gaping chasm, an infinite,
abyss. The piece just
at the theatre stirred up hid-

In the morning, sober and

I uttered a cry of amazement
id anguish: "Youhere!"
And she: "Me, what of it?
uch is life. You looked for me,
panted me, so you had me!"
I thought it was but a dream,
hallucination, but in a flash all
became clear to me.
"How long is it since?"
She did not let me finish, in-
errupting me:
"What's the difference?It's

A Shriner Talks To
His Boy
(Reprinted from "Mahi Dust")
(This touching reverie of a dad,
as he stands over the bed of his
son', ies so sincere and revealing, that
it is given space in our columns. It
is so universal in its application that
surely it is worthy of being followed
hy fathers elsewhere.)
Listen, son: I am saying this
to you as you lie asleep, one lit-
tle paw crumpled under your
check and the blond curls stick-
ily wet on your damp forehead.
I ha,ve stolen into your room
alone. Just a few minutes ago,
as I sat reading my paper in the
library, a hot, stifling wave of
remorse swept over me. I could
not resist it. Guiltily I came to
your bedside.
"These are the things I was
thinking, son: I had been cross
to you. I scolded you as you
were dressing for school because
you gave your face merely a dab
with a towel. I took you to task
for not cleaning your shoes. I
called out angrily when I found
you had thrown some of your
things on the floor.
"At breakfast I found fault,
too. You spilled things. You
gulped down your food. You
put your elbows on the table.
You" spread butter too thick on
your bread. And as you started
off to play and I made for my
train, you turned and waved a
little hand and called, 'Good-bye,
Daddy!' and I frowned, and said
in reply, 'Hold your shoulders
back.'
"Then it began all over again
in the late afternoon. As I came
up the hill road I spied you,
down on your knees, playing
marbles. There were holes in
youi stockings. I humiliated you
before your boy friends by mak-
ing ycu march ahead of me back

to the house. Stockings were ex-
pensiveand if you had to buy
mem you would be more care-
ful! Imagine that, son, from a
father! It was such stupid and
silly logic!
"Do you remember, later, when
I was reading in the library, how
you came in, softly, timidly, with
a sort of hurt, hunted look in
your eyes? When I glanced up
over my paper, impatient at the
interruption, you hesitated at the
door. "What is it you want?' I
snapped.
"You said nothing, but ran
across in one tempestuous plunge
and threw your arms around my
neck and kissed me, again and
again, and your small arms tight-
ened with an affection that God
had set blooming in your heart
and which even neglect could
not wither. And then you were
gone, pattering up the stairs.
"Well, son, it was shortly af-
terwards that my paper slipped
from my hands and a terrible
sickening fear came over me.
Suddenly I saw myself as I real-
ly was, in all my horrible sel-
fishness, and I felt sick at heart.
"What has habit been doing
to me? The habit of complain-
ing, of finding fault, or repri-
mandingall of these were my
rewards to you for being a boy.
It was not that I did not love
you; it was that I expected so
much of youth. It was measuring
you by the yardstick of my own
years.
"And there was so much that
was good, and fine and true in
your character. You did not de-
serve my treatment of you, so.
The little heart of you was as
big as the dawn itself over the
wide hills. All this was shown
by your spontaneous impulse to
rush in and kiss me good night.
Nothing else matters tonight,
son. I have come to your bed-
side in the darkness, and I have
knelt there, choking with emo-
tions, and so ashamed!
"It is a feeble atonement, 1
know you would not understand
these things if I told them to
you during your waking hours,
yet I must say what I am say-
ing. I must burn sacrificial fires,
alone, here in your bedroom,
and make free confession. And

I have prayed God to strength-

morrow I will be a real dady!
I will chum with you, and suf-
fer when you suffer, and laugh
when you laugh. I will bite my
tongue when impatient words
come. I will keep saying as if it
were a ritual: 'He is nothing but
a boya little boy!'
"I am afraid I have visualized
you as a man. Yet as I see you
now, son, crumpled and weary
in your cot, I see that you are
still a baby. Yesterday you were
in your mother's arms, your head
on her shoulder. I have asked too
much, too much.
"Dear Boy! Dear little son!

shrine, here in the moonlight. I
kiss the little fingers and the
damp forehead."

WHY NOT MARRY THE
GIRL?
The Fish
By B. A. BOTKIN
Man, like a fish, with lungs for
gills.
Glides through space for a while
and wills
To live, but somehow fears to die
As he stares at the top of his
pool, the sky.
His fellows vanish in a bubble of
air,
And he wonders if life goes on
up there.
Yet what are fish to us on high,
Who savor their sizzling as they
fry?
