Jewish Merchant
Robbed, Sunday
Articles Stolen Worth Several
Hundred Dollars
HE
i
The home of Mr. and Mrs.
Small, on Southwest Fifth
Street, near Fifth Avenue was
broken into sometime between
5 in the afternoon and 9 at
night, last Sunday in an evi-
dent attempt to locate money
the burglars believed was
hidden in the ho^ise.
The Smalls are the proprie- *
tors of the Flagler Market in
the 200 block of West Flagler
street and closed their store
late on Saturday night. ,The
thieves must have known of
this and believed the money
taken in late Saturday was
kept at the honfe of the
Smalls.
Unable .to locate any money
or cash in the house, they
took all the silver and quite
a number of other valuables
and disappeared. No trace of
them has yet been found. In
the search for money they
broke open a number of
trunks which were in the
home. The value of the,ar-
ticles stolen will run into sev-
eral hundred dollars.
The Police department of
Miami are still working on the
case.

What is more natural, there-

importance of education. And

m r of the passing mome. "
Now. the Hebrew prophet
says: "Without vision the

to the matter of Jewish edu-
F r it u clear that

.e have not been enabled
to live and grow through
.tions of astute diplo-
ma*-, we have not preserved
identity and our useful-
aem because of our ability to
meet our enemies and rivals
in physical combat.
It is the Jewish spiritual
heritage that has preserved
us. This has been the elan
vital, the life forte that has
prevented us from falling
prey to all the destructive a-
gents by which we have been
surrounded. Without this
ige the Jewish people is
doomed.
The Jewish generations of
the past have been profound-
'.;-. almost sub-cor- -ly. a-
ware of this troth. Therefore.
throughout the generations of
our past, the ambition of
every Jewish parent was not
that hia son should become
great conqueror, but a man
of great learning.
Ha- this appreciation of
what has kept us alive now
died among us? Do we no
longer know what we have
lived by? Car. we no longer
recognize the bread which has
- stained us for twenty cen-
turies of exile and martyr-
dom? The transmission of our
intellectual and spiritual her-
itage to our young, is the
problem that touches our life
most profoundly. Even one
who has but a smattering
knowledge of Jewish history
must admit this. The ques-
that faces us. therefore.
.-: Are there in our midst, in
the presently constituted Jew-
ish community of Greater Mi-
ami, including our good tour-
ists, a sufficient number of
men and women who pom
the necessary vision, persist-
ence, determination and will-
ingneaa to help solve the prob-
lem, not in the future, but
NOW.
For the past several year-
men and women of Greater
Miami imbued with the ideals
of enabling the Jewish b
and girls of this community
to receive a true Jewish edu-
cation have dreamt and talk-
ed of a Talmud Torah. But
although, the number of those
who have come to their aid
have grown during that per-
iod, those who are devoting
themselves to the labor day
in and day out still consti-
tute but a handful. The bur-
is not distributed. It is
g-vater than can be borne by
a few. It is essential that
more Jews. nay. all the Jews
of Greater Miami, those who
possess the vision referred i^
by the prophet, come forward
and take up their share of it.
On January 27th. at 2:3"
there will take place ah
I which will mark the be-
ginning of a new era in the
: Miami. Ground
is to be broken that afternoon
for a Tamud Torah structulre
that will for the time being
solve the immediate problem
The inherent vanity in W
makes us take pride in the
high reputation and achieve-
ments of those who are. or
may be identified in the pub-
lic mind with our group. We
believe to be sharing in the
glory of the great man by
claiming him as oar own. This
trait is universal in human
character. Amonest ourselves
we judge each other upon our
merits, as those merits ap-
pear to us. but in relation to
other groups we consider our-
selves as part of a definitive
. class or nation, and anything
we do individually seems to
reflect upon the good or bad
name of the whole.
That accounts for the fact
that we recognize and eulogize
our own the more the greater
the: rfame amongst others,
for they seem to enhance our
awn prestige. Many a great
writer became known to his
own people only after he had
been translated into foreign
tongues and found favor
;-.' r .-. .
Tr.e reverse is not always
the case. The great mar. is not
so eager to be identified with
his people.unless his people
happens to be great or rich
or powerful on its own ac-
count and thereby adds
strength to his standing in
the world. The weaker the
position of the people a- a
whole the wider the breach
between the mass and the -a-
r.alities wh< have
attained world renown.bar-
ring occasional exceptions
hi re and there.
It :s perfectly natural for
the Jews to take pride in the
accomplishments of their
more f rtur.ate or more tal-
ented brethren in foreign
fields. More so probably than
with ar.y other people, for the
rea-or. that we have been for
so many centuries a small
minority am. 1st usually hos-
tile majorities and have had
nothing better to feed our
vanity >r to reini rce our sta-
tus than the acknowledged
deeds of great Jews. And so
it has come about that we are
excessively eager to find ra-
cial affinity in any man of
note, irrespective of his atti-
tude towards the Jewish peo-
ple. H:s mere descent is suf-
ficient if he is big enough to
shed luster on us. however in-

Statistics indicate that only
five out of every hundred do
make an attempt to fashion
thought. It's too bad! Men-
tal laziness makes peculiar
creatures out of us. Our minds
are closed. The windows of
our soul are thus never open-
ed. We continue with our
prejudices from year to year.
Mentally we do not grow.
There are many practices in
Judaism which are of a fetich
and no-Jewish character. W
have "holinized" them and
hallowed them. But they are
meaningless under the light
of a reasonable faith. Then,
too. we have our prejuii. -
about the goy which ought to
be cast aside. We ought to
cultivate the open mind. A-
Jews our aristocracy is based
on intellect and open-minded-
neas.

Motke was found searching
the pavements of the street.
"What have you lost?" they
asked him. "A shilling." he
said. "Where?" they asked.
"Outside the synagogue." he
answered.
"Then why not search out-
side the synagogue?" they
asked him.
"I'm not such a fool as all
that." replied Motke. "Do
you want me to dirty my
hands? Outside the synago-
gue it's muddy.but here it's
quite clean!"

Mordecai the shoemaker sat
thinking: "How lucky I am!
when I grew up, mother want-
ed to make me a tailor, and
-father wanted to make me a
shoemaker. Father won. How
lucky I am mother didn't win,
for I've lived here twenty-
five years and no one has ever
come to order a coat.

BEHIND IN FRONT
A train headed for Chicago
was way behind time. And
the discontent among the pas-
Sera gathered force with
ry moment. Tt
people were troubled because
they were going to miss their
appointments. And the shop-
pers teared that the storm
would be eiosed before the
tram reached the city.
As the porter came through
one ot the chair car-, Isidore
Ooldenson. a traveling sales-
man, said to him:
"Tell me. Samwhat is the
matter? Why is the train so
late?"
"Well, you see, sir," replied
the porter, "the train in front
is behind and we were behind
before besides."

A prominent synagogue
member died and was given n
public funeral. All went well
until the cortege reached the J
cemetery. Then a great ar-
gument started between the
friends and enemies of the de-
ceased as to where he should
be buried. Some contended |
that it should be in a conspic-
uous place while the other?
demanded that the grave j
should be in an obscure spot, j
The dispute raged on until it
almost precipitated several j
fist fights.
Among the group was an |
old-timer with a rather phil-
osophical turn of mind. As j
the argument gained momen-
tum, he turned to a fellow]
standing near him and re-1
marked:
"Well. I ask you. Abraham, |
does it pay to die?"

The talented Paramount
stars, Nancy Carroll and Gary
Cooper, making their first ap-
pearence together, play the
leading roles. During the
last ten minutes of this film
(which are audible) Gary
Cooper is heard to speak for
the first time in his screen
career, and Nancy Carroll, as
a member of a musical com-
edy chorus, sings a new song
hit, "A Precious Little Thing
Called Love."
"The Shopworn Angel," a-
dapted from Dana Burnett's
well known short story, is
first class entertainment.
Briefly, it tells the story of
Daisy Heath, sophisticated
chorus girl kept in luxury by
a Mr. Bailey, wealthy man-
about-town, who finds herself
falling in love with Bill Petti-
grew, an awkward, lumbering
doughboy from Texas.
Miss Carroll, whose popu-
larity increases with each new
picture, gives a splendid per-
formance as Daisy Heath, and
Gary Cooper as Bill Pettigrew
also does good work. Others
in the cast who give fine per-
formances are Paul Lukas
and Roscoe Karns. 'The
Shopworn Angel" was direct-
ed by Richard Wallace.
On the stage our new per-
sonality leader, Don Pedro,
and his Olympians present en-
tirely new stage band presen-
tation assisted by Jeanne Ged-
des and DeVilla and Ruarke,
whirlwind dancers.
A very pleasing organ spec-
ialty is rendered by Stanleigh
Malotte, feature organist.
An interesting issue of
Paramount news and a com-
edy will also be shown on the
same program.
Starting with Saturday
Mid-Night Frolic we have
Clara Bow in Elinor Glyn's
"Three Week Ends," a Para-
mount sound picture.
"Alias Jimmy Valentine," a
talking picture, in which Wil-
liam Haines appears in his
first big dramatic role, will
come to the Fairfax Theatre,
for a weeks engagement be-
ginning Saturday. The star
breaks away for the first
time from the breezy farce
parts that have made him
famous, and reveals himself
as a dramatic actor of unusual
intelligence and ability.
Jack Conway directed the
picture from a script founded
on the tremendously popular
stage play of the same name.
It employs an excellent sup-
porting cast. In addition to
Leila Hyams, the feminine
lead, there are Kark Dane, of
"Big Parade" fame; Tully
Marshall, the noted character
actor, and Lionel Barrymore,
the stage and screen star.
Haines plajta the young
master cracksman who goes
to rob a small town bank, but
stays to start life afresh. He
gets a job in the bank and
finally becomes cashier. In-

cidently he falls in love with
the president's daughter. How
he finally reforms and wins
the girl is one of the most in-
tertaining pictures that has
yet been presented at the
Fairfax Theatre.
The Capitol Theatre will
present beginning with the
Mid-Nite Show Saturday
Night, and all next week, one
of the finest bands presented
in the South, and equal in a-
bility and power of entertain-
ing to bands in the North.
Frank Silver and his Melody
Mad Gang, formerly of the
Hotel Roosevelt and the Little
Club New Orleans, who have
recently completed a tour of
the Southern States will be-
gin to display their wares on
Saturday night and from re-
ports and press notices those
attending the Capital Theatre
will receive far more than the
nominal price of admission
would otherwise warrant.
Raoul Walsh who achieved
fame for his direction of the
famous "What Price Glory"
directed the filming of the
picture to be shown at the
Capital Theatre in addition to
the musical presentation. The
picture, "The Red Dance" will
star Dolores Del Rio and
Charles Farrell and these a-
lone should be worth the
price of admission which re-
mains the same, fifty cents.
THE ADVENTURES OF
A PEDDLER
(Continued from Last Week)
"Here is poison for you," I
felt like saying as 1 handed
it to him. "Your benighted,
poisoned mind could not toler-
ate my hard, honest toil. So
feed on this poisonous dark-
ness now; take this deadly
poison out of my hands; kiss
this dead piece of paper
smeared over with cheap
paint and feast to your
heart's content on this abom-
ination of your own spirit."
When I took his money, I
did it with a Shylockian sense
of revenge and positively
gloated.
A couple of weeks later I
already had on a new overcoat
and was beginning to think
of moving to better quarters,
when I once more met the
priest.
"Well, brother, how are you
getting along?" he said with
a broad smile. "I hear you
are doing good business."'
I expressed my gratitude
for his kindness.
"So, this article is selling
well in our town? Ha, ha,
ha," he chuckled. I'told you
that you'd be all ri^ht. You
sold forty pictures this week.
You are all right, ha, ha, ha."
I was astonished to find
him so familiar with my af-
fairs.
"Be a man and don't leave
out a single house, especially
among the coal shovelers, a-
mong whom you have a large
acquaintance," he told me in-
gratiatingly. "I have preach-
ed about it at the church and
will preach again next Sun-
day. But you must be a man
and come see me, ha, ha, ha,"
he finished with a display of
his gold teeth.
He went away and as if by
magic carried off with him
my desire to sell icons, and
when I returned home that
day, I still had two Peters and
one Jesus with a bleeding
heart all unsold.
I walked across the small
steel bridge and paused to look
at the coal yard whence came
the sound of speeding steei
carts while the wind scatter-
ed coal dust and dried and
pulverized muck. Around'the
tall pyramids stood black
dwarfs and bowed to them as
if in adoration.
All that night my room-
mate complained that I made
too much noise with my iron
bunk and did not let him sleep
while thoughts like evil ra-
vens of the night kept on tor-
menting me:
"You are in partnership
with a priest, you are helping
the black devil to keep his
foolish flock of sheep in dark-
ness."
There were already the first
faint traces of the dawn in the
east when I heard my room-
mate's angry voice:
"Damn it! He bellowed in
his sleep like an ox before the
slaughter and I couldn't close
my eyes all night."
I dressed quickly, and when
the sun lit up the city, I saw
through the windows of the
onrushing train the tops of
the last of the gigantic smoke
stacks.
IKWISH LEADERSHIP
By
MAJOR JULIUS I. PEYSER
The attitude of the Jews of
America towards Jewish lead-
ership and representation has
changed quite perceptibly dur-
ing the last nine or ten years,
and the change may accurate-
ly be described as having pass-
ed from the guidance of social
prestige to influence of an in-
tellectual character. In for-
mer years representatives of
the early settlers, men of so-
cial standing, wealth, and
prior claims to recognition,
acted as our spokesmen and
shaped the policies of Jewish
leadership with little or no re-
gard to the ideas and beliefs
animating the Jewish popula-
tion in different cities. For
a long time, for instance, men
professing the Reform point
of view in Judaism acted as
spokesmen of the large masses
of orthodox Jews, chiefly be-
cause the newer arrivals to
this country were inarticulate
and handicapped by a fierce
economic struggle. Curiously
enough, the outstanding fi-

gures of the Reform group,
while vehemently extolling
religious liberalism for up-
town, advocated the establish-
ment of model orthodox syn-
agogues for down-town, and
while emphatically decrying
agressive Jewish organization
or marked consciousness of
political strength, readily took
advantage of the despised and
allegedly no-existant Jewish
vote to ride triumphantly in-
to political office.
This observation is some-
what of a digression from the
main subject; nevertheless it
serves to throw some light on
the situation in which person-
al influence and caprice had
as much to do with the con-
duct of Jewish affairs as had
intellectual forces and convic-
tions.
But with the growth of its
numbers the Jewish commun-
ity acquired consciousness
which made intellectual devel-
opment possible. Ideas and
beliefs long submerged, ideals
erstwhile cherished by the
weak and the struggling,
gradually found expression,
and as the voice of the Jewish
masses grew in volume it
commanded a hearing. The
beliefs and convictions of the
people found eloquent spokes-
men, and various trends of
thought came to the surface.
After that there could no
longer be Jewish leadership
and representation without at
least some regard to the ideas
and aspirations of the large
masses of the Jewish people.
The day of personal, whimsi-
cal, albeit benevolent, spokes-
manship was then gone.
It no longer sufficed for re-
presentatives of the Jews to
be prominent and affluent,
and to take an interest in hos-
pitals and orphan asylums;
leaders had to believe and ad-
vocate certain views and
measures which had relation
to fundamental beliefs or vi-
tal needs of the Jewish peo-
ple. That due to the pressure
of public opinion certain men
of eminence rather hastly a-
dopted conceptions of Jewish
life which were not originally
their own, may not be a tri-
bute to their character, but
is, nevertheless, testimony of
the force of logic and public
opinion. Ideas and the ability
to put them into effect be-
came more and more the test
of leadership.
That marked the advent of
a new era, though, of course

the conclusion of a period is
often blurred in outline and
not always clearly perceptible.
But it is enough to know that
there came a time of criti-
cism, agitation, conferences
and mass meetings, challenge
and protest, and that the big
things in Jewish life were no
longer done without discus-
sion, differences of opinion
and attempts to compose
them; there was frank criti-
cism that did not spare any-
one and even though not all
the controversies were settled
satisfactorily, a new approach
to Jewish problems had been
achieved, an approach which
betokened a wholesome com-
munal life.
And the contest of ideas, if
it did nothing else, brought a
knowledge of Jewish affairs
to every community in the
country, became conscious of
their place and function in
Jewish life and were no longer
satisfied to have everything
decided by a small group of
eminent men in Manhattan,
with perhaps only an occa-
sional nod from Philadelphia,
Cincinnati or Chicago. Wheth-
er things were done well or
badly the point is that per-
haps a hundred other com-
munities had no opportunity
of either learning all the facts
involved of offering such
views as arose out of their
conception of the facts. Ideas
have a way of emerging spon-
taneously from many quar-
ters, of spreading further
from place to place, and of
constantly seeking combat or
confirmation. So questioners
arose with regard to every
phase of Jewish activity,
especially with reference to
new crises and duties abroad,
and occasions were utilized
for the renewal of the old de-
mand to give all groups and
communities a voice and a
share in the formulation and
execution of Jewish policies
policies which for the first
time were worthy of the
name because they were evol-
ved out of definite opinions
and the meeting of thoughts
and ideas.
This changed condition
made possible the formation
of the first American Jewish
Congress in 1916, and the ar-
gument of futher work

through the means of popu|ar
organization and communal
consultation now has behind
it the force of experience
which brooks no refutation
The value of giving everybody
a vote and a share in the con-
duct of Jewish affairs is now
better established than ever
in view of the accumulated
evidence that every extension
of confidence in the people
brings dividends in the form
of material and moral support
and that public opinion is now-
more than ever our Btrongegj
weapon in combatting borm
of the evils which endanger
the welfare of our people.
We do not mean to exag-
gerate the importance of the
intellectual basis of our move-
merit nor the significance of
popular or democratic form of
constituting our assembles;
but if the pride we take in
Jewish mentality and scholar-
ship means anything, and if
fact and truth really form the
foundation of all effective hu-
man effort, and if the appeal
to the largest number of peo-
ple brings the g re a t esl
amount of interest and moral
backing, then we are fully
justified, in the first place, to
demand methods which shall
include open-minded study ]
and free discussion, and, in
the second place, shall make
possible the inclusion and par-
ticipation of the largest num-
ber of units, individuals, as
well as organizations, bring-
ing the widest accession of
knowledge, interest and sup-
port.
These are the elements in
the program of the American
Jewish Congress which inter-
ested me from the very lietfin-
ning of the history of this
movement. Some writers in
the Jewish press, who recent-
ly commented on my assump-

the indifference of the aver-

believe that he is good enough
to give money, but not good
enough to help think out Jew-
ish problems; it is a summons
to the dignity, devotion and
initiative of every man and
woman in the community, in-

as well as duties, to share and
help shape the destiny of Is-
rael.
The American Jewish Con-
gress has, from the days of
its historic achievements at
the Peace Conference of Ver-
sailles, many big accomplish-
ments to its credit; but not
the least of its important
gains is that of having
brought our intricate ques-
tions and important ideas in-
to the open, with the result
that from the conferences,
debates and even controvers-
ies, larger and larger numbers
of American Jews discovered
their brethren, abroad and
came to realize the chief mo-
tives, thoughts and ideals ani-
mating the life of our people.
The movement has opened a
larger vision. It has enhanc-
ed our lives both as Jews and
as Americans.

THE MAN IN THE JEW
(Continued from Page 2)
hail Henri Bergson as one of
us, though the Professor has
done nothing for Jews and
does not appear to have the
slightest desire to be known
as such, let alone to 'be asso-
ciated with a Jewish cause.
The Poles, who are now an
independent people, are learn-
ing greater independence in
adjudging their men and they
frown on a Joseph Conrad who
for sook his native hearth and
won fame as English novelist.
The Jews, without the steady-
ing effect of secure position,
are still in the grip of the in-
feriority complex which
drives them to clutch at the
toga of every great man that
sprang from their loins. They
delight in heaping compli
ments and fulsome praise up-
on a Bergson, not so much for
his achievements in philoso-
phy or metaphysics, which
are more than questionable,
but because his father was a
Jew.
It goes without saying that
great Jews are more often
than not ready and willing to
forget their people. Selfish
as most of the great men are,
they want larger fields for
their talentsand want them
unencumbered by prejudices
to which their people are ex-
posed. It takes really big
men like an Einstein to be and
to act natural, in which case
they cannot help taking an in-
terest in some congenial Jew-
ish cause. And that brings
us to the point that it is.not
the Jew in the man that
counts, or ought to count, but
the man in the Jew.
We have not gained a single
benefit from the abundance of
great men given to the world
by our people since it first
came to the notice of history,
except what those men did for
us directly. Our situation in
the diaspora has not improved
one iota because of the many
Jews lost to us in foreign
fields. Neither have we ever
succeeded in bringing back in-
to our fold any great Jew just
because we showed him mark-
ed appreciation. A Bergson
will not do a thing for the
Jews and he will not come
nearer to us for our compli-
ments. If anything, he will
resent that we insist on claim-
ing him as ours.
It will be to our greater
credit and larger good if we
apply the measure of manli-
ness to every Jew who has
made a mark in the world. In-
stead of looking for the Jew
in the man, which avails noth-
ing and as often as not de-
grades us in the estimation of
others, we.ought to look for
the man in the Jew. Whoever
of our people acts natural and
is really great in spirit and
heart will never forsake his
own. And whoever deliber-
ately shuts himself out from
his race, is essentially a small
man, and we ought to ignore
him, as a Jew, as completely
as he ignores us.
As a matter of unbiased ob-
servation, the better man is
always the better Jew,just
as the better man is invariab-
ly a better American, or
Frenchman, or German. Look-
ing primarily fo rthe man, we
should cast out of our heart
and esteem many an unwor-
thy individual who, when nec-
essary to his own aggrandize-
ment, is not relucant to play
the Jew for all it may be
worth. If they knew what
awaited them ,the respective
gentlemen would probably in
all sincerity become Jews op-
enly and stay Jewish in at
least some of their affilia-
tions.
FATALISM
solation to the mourners to
feel that the death of their
beloved one was preordained
and that nothing could fore-
stall it. Thus they rational-
ize their misfortunes. Others
console themselves for their
misdeeds with a sister expres-
sion, "God made me so."
This presupposes a useless-
ness to fight against the ex-
ternal power supposedly re-
sponsible for all their actions.
This philosophy of lifeor
rather, death, for life implies
a dynamic inner progressis
the cause of the retardation
of the growth of a religion
embracing a half-billion peo-
ple, Hinduism. The Hindu is
born into a definite caste and
he knows that he is unable to
be elevated into a higher caste
as long as he lives. There be-
ing nothing to hope for in this
life, he must per force become
vitally interested in the after-
life. Then comes the self-di-
rected question, "Of what use
is the body if it serves no pur-
pose in this world"? Receiv-
ing a negative reply, he pro-
ceeds to torture his useless
body in every conceivable
way. This is the inevitable
results of fatalism fatalism
carried to logical extremes. It
marks a disregard for life, and
by stressing the unproduc-
tiveness of the human will,
ends in a surrender to all life's
currents and cross-currents.
Such a docrtine is quite
dangerous, for it implies the
utter uselessness of human ef-
fort and aspiration. What-
ever occurs is pre-ordained or
fated. But we have no right
to blame God for all that hap-
pens. God gave us senses
and sensory organs to use,
not toabuse. If we abuse
them, we suffer the conse-
quences. We have no excuse
to offer, for God also gave us
a heart and mind to help us
to differentiate between right
and wrong. We read in the
Bible that God punished Mir-
iam with leprosy for abusing
her God-given power of
speech with a tirade against
Moses. Thus man, not God,
is ruler of his destiny. Man,
not fate, is responsible for
what he is. You might argue
that we aren't all blessed with
equal opportunities and the
same equipment for life's bat-
tlessome are born rich, oth-
ers poor; some with physical
handicaps, others perfect;
some with hardly any chance
to develop, others with every
chance. If, however, you
seek the true causes, you will
find that environments, ine-
qualities, injustices and apti-
tudes for evil are almost man-
made.
Man can be almost anything
that he wills and makes an ef-
fort to be. "All is forseen,"

one is truly captain of his soul
and master of his fate. It
would be of tremendous ad-
vantage to the individual to
learn to complain occasionally
against himself when things
don't go right. He will find
that much could have been
avoided had he managed his
affairs otherwise. The cause
of a goodly proportion' of his
troubles he will find in some
personal neglect of mind or
body. He will learn that
nothing must be. He will
realize that he is not even cer-
tain that the sun will shine
tomorrow. He is not positive
that he is awake.and not
dreaming. He comes to know
that if he races his car on a
public highway, he might be
killed, and his relatives, if it
actually occurred, cannot con-
vince me that he was "fated"
to be killed at that particular
time. It is somewhat com-
forting to make some other
power the goat, but why fool
ourselves? Introspection will
show us how much we our-
selves are to blame for our
misfortunes.
Fatalism is a dangerous
philosophy because it takes
all the fight out of man and
makes him merely a piece of
flotsam-jetsam buffeted about
by every wind and'wave. A
fatalist who is seriously ill
will be apt to say, "If I must
die, I will die. Why fight
against it."? A poor down-
trodden fatalist would ask,
"Why strive for or desire any-
thing better? If it is to come
to me, it will come." The re-
sult is self-evident.
Life is a laboratory, not a
relentless, exacting tyrant,
and men must continually ex-
periment therein to purge
themselves of dross so as to
emerge eventually in the like-
ness of God, Man's end is God.
Man's destiny is man.
Leisure is sweet when it
follows work well done.

Hadassah
The first meeting of the
local chapter of Hadassah was
marked not only by the un-
usually large attendance and
enthusiasm displayed by the
members but by the splendid
educational addresses deliver-
ed by two out of town guests
and by the playlet presented
by the Hadassah members.
The meeting was held at
the Robert Clay Hotel, and
Mrs. Horowitz, of New York
City, one of the National
Board of Hadassah who re-
cently returned from a two
month's visit to Palestine
spoke on Hadassah and its ac-
complishments. She was fol-
lowed by Mrs. Dunkelman, of
Toronto, who is the Vice Pres-
ident ,of the Toronto chapter,
and who spoke of the import-
ance to Jewry of Hadassah
generally.
A playlet called "Fore-
Watch your Drive," in which
Mrs. Herbert Kleiman, Mrs.
A. Aronowitz, Mrs. Albert E.
Rosenthal, Mrs. Henry Seit-
lin, Mrs. L. A. Ruscol and Mrs.
Harry Weinberg took part
was presented. The play ex-
plained the purposes of the
United Palestine Appeal Drive
and was acted in such a man-
ner as to arouse the envy of
professionals.
The first of a series of
weekly bridge parties was
held at the home of Mrs. M. D.
Kirsch, at 327 Washington
Avenue, Miami Beach, as this
paper is going to press. Re-
gular bridge parties will be
held every week for the bene-
fit of Hadassah, at which dif-
ferent members will act as
hostesses.
The first meeting of the
Jewish Culture Study Circle,
which is one of the subsidiar-
ies of the local chapter will be
held on Monday night at the
home of Mrs. Isidor Cohen,
in Shenandoah.
The membership Drive is
now in full swing under the
chairmanship of Mrs. Herbert
Wepman, and will continue
the entire month of January.
It is expected that Mrs. David
De Sola Pool, nationally
known speaker will address
local Hadassah sometime this
month in the interests of the
membership campaign.
