Critic Resigns
From Local Paper
Milton J. better known as
"Doc" Benjamin, prominent
dramatic critic and President
and Dramatic Editor of the
Shean Syndicate has asked us
to announce the severance of
connections with the Jewish
Unity.
Interviewed as to his rea-
sons, "Doc" replied that he
felt he owed it to his readers
to uphold a certain prestige
and since that policy was not
carried out he deemed it his
duty after due notice to the
paper to sever his conections.
He still retains his connec-
tions with the Miami Life and
a number of national papers
such as the New York World
in which a recent article of
his appeared.

THE PROBLEM OF THE JEW!
Must the Jew always be
harassed and persecuted, lov-
ed by none, idealized by few.
tolerated by some, hated and
scorned by many? Must the
deriding finger forever be
pointed at him because he is
a Jew? The Jewish people as
a whole can never be absorbed
assimilated, converted or
massacred; history has shown
this clearly. What, then, of
the fifteen million members
of the race scattered through-
out the world? Must then,
the Jew go on as the victim
of unreasoned prejudice? Will
the word ever learn to be hu-
mane? Is there a solution to
this aspect of the Jewish pro-
blem?
We believe there is! To be-
gin with, each Creed must re-
cognize the good in others and
must come to a basis of mu-
tual co-operation and under-
standing. There must be a
recognition that
"There is so much good in the
worst of us,
And so much bad in the best
of us,
That it ill behooves any of us
To find fault with the rest of
us."
Each must work for all, as
well as each for himself. It is
true that the Ethics of the
Fathers teaches, "If I am not
for myself, who will be for
me?" for of a surety charity
must, of necessity, commence
at home. The Jewish teaching
however, goes further, and
ask "I being for myself, what
am I?" Perhaps just because
of this idealism in Judaism
each Jew must be a Jew, in
the full sense of the term.
"All Israelites" says the
Talmud, "are mutually ac-
countable for one another.
The weal or the woe of Israel
is in the hands of every in-
dividual Israelite." This re-
sponsibility must be recogniz-
ed. It is only so far as Jews
and Jewesses are made to see
that all our virtues and suc-
cesses in life are due to the
fact that the blood of our peo-
ple is coursing through our
veins, while our vices are our
own, that a partial solution
of the Jewish Problem can
be found. The attitude of Jew
to Jew, and of the Jew to Ju-
daism, is intimately bound up
with the Jewish problem it-
self. The concensus of opinion
appears to be that, above all,
Jews must live as Jews, and
spread Jewish ideals where ig-
norance and paganism, partic-
ularly in its worship of Mam-
mon and materialism, stand
supreme.
Judaism was not given to
us alone. "Though its first
appeal was to the nation
whose language it spoke,"
says Professor M. Lazarus in
his monumental work on "The
Ethics of Judaism," yet the
ethics of Judaism, even in its
oldest form, was pre-emiently
social. In its essentials, in its
fundamental thought defining
the reason and aim of moral-
ity, it was not national, but
universal ethics. In other
words, moral knowledge was
not held to have been creat-
ed for Israel alone; it was for
the world at large."
It is only when, through
our efforts, the ethical teach-
ings of Judaism are spread
on eagle wings to reach from
one end of the earth to the
other, animating mankind to
do what is right and what is
just, casting aside hatred and
prejudice as things unclean,
and eagerly grasping at the
appealof brotherhood which
permeates Jewish teachings
that the Jewish problem will
find its solution. Only then
will the ghastly menace,
which has confronted the Jew
for so many centuries, and
has caused so much needless
upheaval and discontent to re-
main unchecked in the world,
at last be laid to rest.
"All the great evils which
men cause to each other be-
cause of certain intentions,
desires, opinion, or religious
principles, are likewise due to
non-existence, because they
originate in ignorance, which
is absence of wisdom. A blind
mail, for example, who has
no guide, stumbles constantly,
because he cannot see, and
causes injury and harm to
himself and others. In the
same maner various classes of
men, each man in proportion
to his ignorance, bring great
evils upon themselves and up
on other individual members
of the species. If men posses-
sed wisdom, which.stands in
the same relation to the form
of man as the sight to the eye.
they would not cause any in-
jury to themselves or to
others; for the knowledge of
truth removes hatred and
quarrels, and prevents mu-
tual injuries."
From "THE GUIDE FOR
THE PERPLEXED."
By Moses Maimonides.
Fusel oil never stilled a
crime wave.

Political pull is sometimes
strong enough to rip off a
prohibition padlock.

Hope the next legislature
doesn't puncture common
sense with nuisance tax.

Eve may have been satis-

By Greta Bloomhill
"I say, Grannie," said Leon-
ard, who had been playing in
a football match that after-
noon, "Your gefullte fish is
unbeatable scores goal
every time against mother's."
He had come home after the
rest of the family finished
dinner, and showed his sin-
cerity by demolishing the
contents of his plate.
"Greedy," said Ruth,
watching him. "You'll choke
if you eat so fast he de-
serves to be punished for his
greediness! Girls, what shall
his punishment be? I think
he should be made to go with-
out gefullte fish for a year."
"I say, have a heart!"
pleaded Leonard in mock dis-
may, "A week's quite
enough."
"I know of a boy who was
much hungrier than you,"
said Bohben, "and who was
made to go without his ge-
fullte fish for a year through
no -fault of his own."
"Who was the poor chap?
asked Leonard between
mouthfuls.
"A little boy named Ben-
jamin, who lived a hundred
years ago," said Bohbeh. "His
parents were very poor.
Evrey Friday evening they
had a treat, for their father
used to buy a fish for the
Sabbath meal. Benjamin's
mother atways made gefullte
fish, as it was more economi-
cal and went further than
fried fish. Her gefullte fish
had the reputation of being
the finest in the neighborhood
and you can imagine how her
large hungry family looked
forward to the weekly treat.
She had six girls and a boy,
Benjamin, who was the hun-
griest of all. Every Friday
night her brother used to vis-
it them and add to the mouths
that needed feeding. How-
ever, Uncle Isi never came
emptyhanded, but always
brought some pleasant little
gift, either of the sweet con-
serves beloved of that genera-
tion, or of some quaint toys
for his nephew and nieces.
Benjamin was his favorite,
and he would spend hours in
relating strange stories to
him, or playing frolic-some
pranks.
"This uncle was an extrem-
ely pious man. He had been
a great Talmud student in his
day, and never missed a
B'racha. His wife had died
and left him childless, and his
greatest joy was on festivals
and Friday nights, when he
left his lonely home to join his
poor sister's bright family
circle, where happy children's
voices and the sound of inno-
cent prattle recalled his own
never-to-be-realized dream
children. How delightful the
youngsters were when the
Sabbath drew nigh! the
bright lights, their mother's
week-day cares replaced by
smiles, the fragrant smell of
gefullte fish, and best of all
Uncle Isi with a joyful face,
a 'Gut Shabbos, gut shabbos,'
and some present or other for
them all.
"On Shabbos they were a-
waiting him as usual but he
was late. His brother-in-law
told them that he had not
seen him at Shul, whence they

Those who have been for-
tunate enough to be able to
attend this week's show at
the Olympia Theatre, will be
well repaid for the time spent,
by viewing the current stage
presentation at the Theatre.
There is no doubt in the mind
of the writer that it is one of
the best the Olympia has yet
produced.
As the curtain rises one
cannot help but break into ap-
plause when the beautiful and
far famed sky line of Miami
comes into view. There is just
a question in our mind which
of the numbers presented
drew most applause. However
we feel the award should go
to "Marietta" billed as the
"Dancing Venus." For little-
ness of body, grace of car-
riage and acrobatic dancing
of the kind that one enjoys,
one should not miss this par-
ticular number. Marietta cer-
tainly, in the vernacular,
"produces the goods."

syncopators who were for-
merly with one of the Al Jol-
son shows present several
pleasing numbers, being par-
ticularly pleasing in "I want

Takwah Chan, the- Chinese
boy, has the indefinable some-
thing which some like to call.
"personality". The moment
he appears on the stage one
feels that he likes the boy and
naturally listens sympatheti-
cally. And to say the least,
the boy is GOOD. In both his
singing and banjo strumming
he is good, far beyond one's
fondest expectations.
We can therefore readily
account for the crowds that
have been attending and with
the much advertised and
splendid picture now showing
"The Duke Steps Out," those
attending the Friday and Sat-
urday shows, one who wants
to spend a real enjoyable af-
ternoon or evening need have
but very little doubt in his
mind as to where to travel.

starring Victor McLaglen,
which opens at the Capitol
Theatre, next week.
McLaglen, from his palmy
days of "What Price Glory?"
and "Loves of Carmen," is an
especial favorite locally. Fox
has provided him with an
ideal vehicle in "Captain
Lash." and a director, John
G. Blystone, who recently
produced the sensational suc-
cess, "Mother Knows Best,"
from Edna Ferber's story.
"Captain Lash" teems with
exciting situations and with
moments of comedy provided
by McLaglen and his pal,
Cocky played by Clyde Cook.
Most of the scenes take
place aboard an ocean liner
plying between Sydney and
Singapore, with McLaglen
one minute driving his stokers
at a furious pace and the next
making love to Claire Wind-
son, an adventuress. There is
a twist at the finish.
An ultra modern story
dressed as smartly as a Fifth
Avenue show window brings
Jack Mulhall and Dorothy
Mackal back to the Olympia
Theatre, Sunday, to the de-
light of their many admirers
and unqualified amusement
of all. "Children of the Ritz"
is the name First National
Pictures has given to this so-
ciety comedy and its enter-
tainment plus.
As Angela, spoiled younger
daughter of the Pennington
millions, Miss Mackall is al-
lowed to romp through more
clothes and better sets than
ever before, while Mulhall her
chauffeur husband who blos-
soms for a time into a New
York Spend thrift, carries the
burden of a more than ordin-
ary comedy drama plot. These
two favorites have a whole
cast of fine looking young
people with them who make
the picture lively and good to
look at. Among them are
James Ford, former musical
comedy singer; Kathryn Mc-
Guite, Doris Dawson, Edward
Burns and Lee Moran.
The story is much better
than average comedy vehic-
les, having been a prize win-
ner in a novel contest which
netted its author $10,000.
Starting with the familiar
theme of the wealthy girl in
love with the family chauf-
feur it develops entirely new
situations when she loses her
money and he becomes rich.
They move to the Ritz hotel
where his money proves in-
adequate and love meets many
stumbling blocks. At last but
that's the story. John Dillion
directed it.

The Flagler Theatre will be
re-opened Sunday evening, it
was announced yesterday by
representatives of the Bur-
ton-Garrett Players, who are
terminating their engagement
at the Temple Theatre this
wee kand taking over the
Flagler for presentation of
stock productions.
The Flagler is a fireproof,
modern theater in W. Flag-
ler street near Third Avenue.
It was built in 1926 and open-
ed as an independent vaude-
ville and moving picture
house. More recently it was
used for the showing of short
musical comedies, and for the
past several waaks has been
vacant. The stage, lighting,
and seating arrangements
are ideal for stock presenta-
tions, in the opinion of the
Burton-Garrett management.
In addition to the usual
dramatic programs, an or-
chestra will be featured at the
Flagler, and talent imported
for the amusement of the au-
diences during the intermis-
sions between acts. This fea-
ture is in answer to the re-
quests of patrons of the Tem-
ple Theater.
The Flagler is being rede-
corated. Parking space is pro-
vided for automobiles on the
adjacent streets, as well as a
free parking lot a half block
from the theater, in Flagler
street. This parking arranp-
ment, together with the easy
accessibility of the Flagler to
all sections of the city, is ex-
pected to meet with the ap-
proval of the many patrons
and friends of the Burton-
Garret Plavers.'

THE RABELAISIAN
(Continued from Last Week)
"Well, what are you doing
now?" I asked him, "Still
writing for C?"
"Hell, no!" he answered,
"I've been in Paris for the last
year. I just came back two
months ago."
"I suppose you had a good
time over there," I suggested.
"A wonderful time!" he ex-
claimed, I'm sorry I can't
live over there permanently.
Those lovely little Parisian
girls! And the sophisticated
attitude of the whole people!
I'm getting so sick of this
damned Saxon prudery." And
he added:
"I could not tolerate it if it
were not for this" showing
me his volume. "Rabelais is
the only man in all literature
with whom I think and feel
alike. Sometimes I believe
that I am really another Rab-
elaisborn to tear down and
destroy the hypocrisies of this
big sausage factory I felt
like a prisoner as soon as I
landed again."
"But then there are com-
pensations," I protested. "Af-
ter all we are Americans, and
the land that reared us offers
some emotional and spiritual
balm for our discontent. I,
too, am disgusted with the
prudish and provincial atti-
tude of our peoplebut still,
I, who am French by blood,
could never be more than a
friendly visitor in Paris."
Louis wavered my state-
ment aside.
"One does not have to be
French to be at home in Paris.
It is home to all intellectuals
and bon-vivants. Besides,"
he added, "I am not an Amer-
ican; I am an International-
ist."
"An Internationalist ?" I
queried.
"Yes," he continued. "I am
not spiritually American; I
do not feel elated when I hear
your prophecies of the futu

hell do you propose to do. You
are part of no people,you
have no countryyou have
only hate and no love to strike
a balance."
At last a gleam of joy came
to his eyes. Turning with
calm satisfaction he made a
motion as though to sweep
aside my entire argument.
"'Here," he said "is my so-
lution. Here is my cureRa-
belais," and he added, "and
Nietzsche. I shall bury myself
away from the people and
scenes that aggravate me and,
with this work as my guide,
endeavor to recreate the life
of today in unvarnished lang-
uage that will put to shame
the hypocritical writings of
"acceptable" scribblers. I
shall call a spade a spade, and
I will puncture all the roman-
tic and sentimental gush
about sex that seems to satis-
fy the souls of our country-
men."
Somehow I could not pic-
ture Louis in the role of a
modern Rabelais. His finicky
mannerism and soft romantic
eyes belied his boast.
"But are you certain you
have the temperament to be-
come this gigantic interna-
tional, social purgative as it
were," I asked doubtfully.
But Louis hastened to as-
sure me. Still talking on the
same subject, he arose and
escorted me to the corner,
where we parted.
I called on Louis several
times during the next few
weeks. At every visit I was
regaled with interesting ex-
cerpts from the picaresque
master; and with some of
Louis' sketches in the same
maner. I had not the heart to
tell him that his own work
derived meritif of a some-
what dubious nature only
through the fact that it was
an obvious and unconvincing
imitation of his master.
We always discussed life
and letters in a vein similar
to that of our first conversa-
tion in Washington Square.
Ever in the background were
sly and vague sophisticated
allusions to the various wo-
men who, it seemed, were in
the habit of visiting him.
he left me for the avowed pur-
pose of meeting, and escorting
to his studio one of these de-
lectable and worldly creatures.
Never did I receive the slight-
est impression that might
lead me to suppose that this
youthful and modern Panurge
had the least romantic or sen-
timental illusions concerning
his various loves.
I was in a very ticklish pos-
ition at the time and badly
needed the assistance of a fel-
low sophisticate. My affair
with a young married lady
of Spanish extraction was at-
tracting the attention of her
husband's emotional relatives.
For some tim ewe had been
afraid to meet at her home,
and so had no place to air our
feelings in privacy since I
was broke and stopping at the
Mills.
At last, under the influence
of Louis' worldly confidences,

I plucked up courage to ask
him a favor that I had grant-
ed to others on innumerable
occasionsnamely, the use of
his studio as a trysting place,
when conenvient to him.
Louis did not answer at
once. Apparently he was
searching about for a good
reason to refuse; but none
forthcoming, he reluctantly
gave his consent. We arrang-
ed a date twice and then al-
tered it at his insistence. Or-
dinarily I would have dismiss-
ed the matter, but Louis'
manner annoyed me and I
determined to bring the mat-
ter to a conclusion. For the
third time I arranged a date
with some slight sarcasm in-
sisted that it should not be
again deferred.
On the appointed afternoon,
I went in company with my
little friend to Louis' place on
lower MacDougall Stree. It
had been arranged that Louis
would leave his keys in the
letter box for which he had
already given me the neces-
sary combination. I inserted a
nail file in th elock as direct-
ed and opened the diminutive
door. Instead of the keys I
found this note:
"Please forgive me, but I
am unable to do otherwise. I
have only one sweetheart
whom I love dearly. She is so
sweet and so delicate that I
can not bear the thought of
our lovenes tbeing invaded by
strangers.
Forgive me,
Louis B."
I turned the missive over in
my hand and began to laugh
loudly to the surprise of my
companion.
"Why, what's so funny,"
she asked wonderingly.
"Oh nothing much," I ans-
wered between gasps as I ted
her out of the hallway, "It's
only a little message from a
terrible Rabelaisian."

Youth of the world, you are

Strive for a new world bet-

From myriad wrongs and

To you we turn, let us not
turn in vain.
Too long have we sat silent
while our heart,
Full with the passion that
within us burns
To serve mankind, has
yearned as still it yearns
In your great venture greatly
to take part.
And yet there stirs in us an
age-old pride,
A small but mighty peo-
ple's pride or race;
Friendship, not favor, is in
the right we ask
With aught save comrade-
ship unsatisfied.
Youth of the World, we ask

used to come together. It was
the first time, within their
memory that Uncle Isi had
missed Shul, and at last, as
he neither appeared nor sent
a message, they concluded
that he must be seriously ill.
Benjamin's father accordingly
went to find out, and Benja-
min, who it must be confess-
ed was rather a selfish little
boy, and was quite unmoved
by the general anxiety, cried
for long-delayed gefullte fish.
He was very hungry, and the
tantalizing aroma spread from
the tiny kitchen over the two
cramped rooms that were
their home. But his mother
only scolded him, and kept
him walking from the kitchen
to the door to look out for
her husband's return. The
latter was away for long over
an hour. 'I can find no place
of Isi in his room,' he said
when he came back at last.
'Everything is as usualonly
his hat and his tallith are
not in their place. No one
knows where he is; the neigh-
bors saw him go to Shul, but
no one has seen him since.'
"'Have you notified the
police?' asked his wife.
" 'Yes, and they are search-
ing the town. I fear there is
nothing more we can do to-
day.'
"There was sadness in the
home that evening, and an
atmosphere of gloom that, no
matter how obtrusive their
poverty, had never before ob-
scured the glory of the Sab-
bath. The parents hardly tast-
ed any food, but Benjamin,
who was by now tearfully vo-
racious, devoured both his
own and his parents' share of
the gefulte fish.
"Early the next morning
the father went out to make
further inquiries. When he
came back he had a little par-
cel in his handit contained
Uncle Isi's hat and tallith, the
only relics left of him, that a
fisherman had found floating
in the river at night. Though
the police authorities were on
the lookout for the dead man's
body, all search seemed fruit-
less, for every trace of it had
vanished."
* *
"The weekdays passed, and
in due course the family
found itself again on the
threshold of the Sabbath.
"Sudden death and tragedy
may cross our path, the fing-
er of Nemesis may move, un-
forseen catastrophe fall upon
us, but the wells of life and
sustenance must be maintain-

ed. And thus, though they
could no longer hope for the
presence of their welcome
Sabbath guest, and though
there was still a heavy depres-
sion over their minds, yet the
father found himself at the
fish-market as usual on Fri-
day's noon. The fishers had
just brought in the morning's
catch, and as he passed one
of the stalls, a great iridescent
salmon leaped from the nets
almost into his arms.
"'I will take this one,' he
said, and paying for the fish
turned his steps homeward.
"His wife took the fish and
carried it into the kitchen.
She laid it on the board, and
as she raised her knife to de-
spatch it, a heart-rendering
cry burst from its mouth and
echoed through the house
'Sh'ma Yisrael!"
"She screamed and dropped
the knife, while her husband,
who had also been startled by
the cry, ran into the kitchen.
" 'Wos is dos-" he exclaim-
ed.
"She was on the verge of
fainting, but pulled herself to-

the salmon, which, through
having been so long out of
water, was now in the last
stages of exhaustion. Her hus-
band went closer to the fish
and looked at it.
" 'Good God,' he said, 'it
was Isi's voice!'
"She nodded and wept si-
lently, rocking her body back-
wards and forwards.
"Her husband quickly filled
a basin with water and put
the fish into it, but it was too
late. The fish was dead.
" 'I must go to the Rav at
once,' he said, and hurried to
get his hat.
