\ many friends of Mrs.

Bible Class Cele-
bartes "Siyom"
The Beth David Bible Class
organized some time ago by
Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld and
headed by Mr. John Wolf as
President celebrated at an old
fashioned "Siyom" last night
in the vestry rooms of the
Synagogue.
A large number of guests in
addition to the members of
the Bible Class were present
to enjoy the festivities. Every
organization connected with
the Synagogue was represent-
ed.
The affair began with the
singing of the Hatikvo led by
Mr. Wroobel and was followed
by a very interesting and in-
structive address outlining
the history of the Class by its
President Mr. Wolf who acted
as Toastmaster. He then in-
troduced Mr. Lewis Brown,
Treasurer of Beth David who
made a brief address outlin-
ing the progress of the Build-
ing of the new Beth David
Talmud Torah and appealed
for cooperation. Mrs. Sonya
Snowe then sang several se-
lections of Jewish folk songs
and encore was enthusiasti-
cally demanded. Mr. Jos. M.
Fine, first vice president of
Beth David then spoke brief-
ly expressing his pleasure at
being present.
Mr. Wroobel then sang sev-
eral Jewish folk songs which
were greatly applauded. Mr.
E. Gordon was then introduc-
ed to speak on behalf of the
members of the Bible Class
and in well chosen words he
explained the work of the
Bible Class and delivered a
talk on the teachings of the
Hagaddah.
A number of the members
of the Sunday School and sev-
eral of the children of mem-
bers of the Class rendered
several musical selections on
the violin and piano and gave
several recitations. Those who
took part were Miss Adele
Segal, Miss Ida Engler, Mas-
ter Weinkle and several
others.
Mrs. Isidor Cohen then
spoke on behalf of the Sister-
hood of Beth David and she
was followed by Mr. J. Louis
Shochet the President of Beth
David.
Mr..Isidor Cohen in a very
draWtic way told a story de-
picting a real episode in re-
cent Miami history, which will
appear in an early issue of the
American Hebrew. He held
hishearers spell bound for
some time and concluded his
story with anecdote of a
southern negro and the
prophet Elijah.
Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld.
the organizer, and leader, of
the Class was introduced as
Jewish Girl Wins
High Honors
Miss Natalie Spector, the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Samuel J. Spector, of Obispo
avenue, Coral Gables, was
elected from the Senior Class
to membership in the Nation-
al Honorary Society of Ponce
de Leon High School as a re-
ward for scholarship, charac-
ter, leadership and service.
On Thursday she was
awarded a scholarship to the
University of Miami as a re-
ward for her scholastic stand-
ing by the faculty of the Coral
Gables High School.
Miss Spector has won signal
honors at the High School
during the time that she has
been a resident of Florida
having come here with her
parents from Boston, Mass.
Her father is one of the
best known communal work-
ers in Miami, being Vice Pres-
ident of the Hebrew Free
Loan Society which he helped
organize, the Mens Club of
Miami, a member of the Exec-
utive Board of Beth David,
and in active charge of the
erection of the new Talmud
Torah Building.
Mrs. Spector is one of the
active workers of the Beth
David Sisterhood, being a
member of its Executive
Board the past several years.
Building Dedica-
tion Postponed
The dedication of the new
Talmud Torah Building of
Beth David which had been
scheduled to take place this
coming Sunday, May 5, 1929,
has been postponed to Sun-
day, May 26, and will begin
promptly at 3 o'clock, with
the formal dedication cere-
monies. At 7 o'clock there will
be a banquet to which only
those who have purchased ad-
mission cards, and specially
invited guests, will be able to
attend. Arrangements are
now being made for some out
of town speakers to address
the afternoon and evening
ceremonies.
The postponement was
caused by the fact that the
furniture and equipment or-
dered for the new building
had not yet arrived and could
not be installed in time as
originally scheduled.__________
Free Loan Society
to Elect Officers
Wednesday night, April 8th
at 8 p. m. will mark the an-
nual meeting and election of
officers for the Hebrew Free

detailed report will be render-
ed showing the number of
families helped and a com-
plete financial statement will
be presented to each member
present.
The nomination Committee
will then present its report
and elections will then be
held.
Because of the fact that re-
markable wrok has been done
by the Society in the short
time of its existence it is in-
cumbent upon Miami Jewry
to make every effort to be
present and tak peart in the
good work.
Welfare Bureau
Plans Campaign
At the last meeting of the
Jweish Welfare Bureau the
Executive Board decided that
because of the calls made up-
on the organization for relief
in needy cases it became im-
perative that additional funds
be raised to continue the
work. After considerable dis-
cussion it was decided that a
Committee be appointed to
draft plans for a Jewish Wel-
fare Burean Campaign Week.
It is planned that the Friday
preceding the Campaign Week
both the Beth David and
Temple Israel Rabbis will
preach sermons, and a mass-
meeting will be held the fol-
lowing Sunday to acquaint lo-
cal Miamian Jews with the
necessity for becoming mem-
bers of the Bureau. An ac-
tive campaign will then be
waged to cover every Jewish
home in the City during this
week by the various team*
which will be named.

morous vein delivered a very
interesting talk. He then con-
cluded with an outline of the

WINNING AMERICA FOR
TRADITIONAL JUDAISM
We just cannot help feel-
ing, despite the birth throes
of the last decade, that the
direction of Jewish affairs in
the next decade will gradually
be taken over by that element
in American Jewry which is
loyal to Jewish tradition. The
struggle to survive is an ex-
tremely hard one, and only
the fittestthose most equip-
ped with the traditional Jew-
ish armorTorah and Avo-
dahwill have the energy t<>
stay in line. A new youth is
arriving one imbued with
the American spirit that im-
pels one to battle for his
ideals till he wins.
We have the feeling that
great things are about to hap-
pen in Jewish life. There are
indications that the death
blow to anti-Semitism in Eu-
rope will be struck on Ameri-
can soil and it will be cheifly
through the vigor of the Jew-
ish youth in America. On
American soil, too, will 1)"
prepared the "soldiers" who
will lead the way to the re-
habilitation of the Jewish
homeland in Palestine.
All the more reason for our
looking to the necessity for
preparing our youth with the
knowledge and the spirit
the equipment that will enable
them to take the lead when
the time comes.
It is here where The Tal-
mud Torah, The Jewish Mag-
azine, The Real Jewish Edu-
cator, finds its place of use-
fulness gradually, though
with the patience of the edu-
cator, providing the "proven-
der" that gives strength to
the "marrow" of those who
have the mental vigor to par-
take of the "food." It is true
that our "cooks" have not, as
a rule, because of their dead
estness, made their
"broth" sufficiently spicy to
satisfy the spoiled tastes of
stomachs accustomed to the
thin nourishment which the
time consuming newspaper
offers. Gradually, however,
even they are learning the
art, with the result that the
reaction to Traditional Juda-
ism has been steadily growing
more satisfactory.
And more people, especially
the young folks, are coming
to realize the greater grand-
eur of lifting themselves into
the realm of the ideal, away
from the mere ties of enforce-
able common law into those
of unenforceable Jewish law
but recognizing it as law,
not, in Christian fashion, as
mere belief, which each one
has the privilege to change
almost at will. And it is chief-
ly those who are not suffici-
ently informed of the great-
ness and beauty of Jewish
law, and who do not know the
difference, who find it most
convenient to regard them-
selves as superior to the be-
liever in traditional Judaism
and who scoff at what they
call old timer, and especially
is it encouraging when men
and women of note such as
Nathan Straus and the late
Sophie Irene Loeb come out
emphatically for more ortho-
doxy in Judaism.
If we are to have one Juda-
ism again, recognized as such
the world over, we must a-
gain lay stress on Jewish
knowledge at least in equal
measure with secular. And, in
the broader sense, this Jewish
knowledge includes the secu-
lar.
The sooner this is realized,
the sooner Traditional Juda-
ism, too, will be given its true
worth, and the more energetic
will be its members, in
helping increase its value to
Judaism as a whole.
WHAT CAN THE SYNAGOGUE
DO FOR ME?
The Synagogue today is on
trial. For many centuries the
Synagogue occupied the focal
point in Jewish life, but in
our day, and particularly in
this country, it is being shift-
ed to the background. We do
not have enough synagogues
to minister to the spiritual
Is of American Jewry,
and the existing few are
poorly supported. The Jews of
Chicago, for example, seem to
have money for their personal
needs: for expensive dinner
parties, for automobiles, and
for golf clubs. They even
have money for charitable
purposes; for consumptives,
for lunatics, for neurotics
but they are starving the
Synagogue. I am not a proph-
et of evil tidings, for you
know the facts as well as I
do. The majority of Synago-
gues in the city of Chicago
are actually struggling for
( xistetice. Nor do the Jews of
Chicago care to support the
Synagogue morally, for the
number of those who attend
services regularly is verj
small, and Friday evening is
more and more being utilized
for bridge games, for dances,
and for other secular affairs.
In the light of these facts one
is forced to become pessimis-
tic about the future of the
Svnagogue ip this country.
Of course, to the person
who understands the psycho-
logy of our people, our disin-
terestedness in the Synago-
gue and in public worship is
perfectly explicable. The
American Jew is a highly
practical individual and he
will not do anything unless he
is convinced of its utilitarian
value. "Show me!" says the
American Jew. "Prove to me
that I need the Synagogue
and that I am going to bene-
fit from public worship, and
you will then see me at the
house of God regularly." Now
Judaism is a religion of rea-
son and it encourages inquiry.
The Jew has a perfect right
to search and to learn all
about his religion, and the
Rabbi of today is therefore
called upon to answer in un-
ambiguous terms a great
question which is being put to
him from all sides, namely.
"What can the Synagogue do
for me?"
Make You See God
My answer to this question
is that the Synagogue must
make you see God in your
daily life. In the Book of
Psalms, chapter one hundred
and thirty-nine, King David
utters the following striking
words: "Whither shall I go
from Thy spirit or whither
shall I flee from Thy pre-
sence? If I ascend up into
heaven, Thou art there! If I
make my bed in the nether-
world, behold, Thou art
there! If I take the wings of
the morning and dwell in the
uttermost parts of the sea
even there would Thy hand
lead me and Thy right hand
would hold me." Here the
Psalmist tells us in beautiful
language how he sees God
everywhere: he sees Him hi
heaven, he sees him on earth,
and he sees Him in the dis-
tant seas. Thus the Psalmist .
has attained a profound relig-
ious insight, and I wish to say
to you that so long as we are
not as conscious of the omni-
presence of God as the Psalm-
ist it is our duty to come to
Synagogue regularly in order
to acquire this great spirit-
ual quality.
At this point, however, the
skeptic comes forward and
says: "But I have tried that!
I have looked for Cod on num-
erous occasions in the Syna-
gogue but my effort has been
in vain. I have never been
able to find God yet." To this
argument I wish to reply that
if we have tried to find God
and failed it is solely because
we have looked for Him in the
wrong place. God cannot be
found externally before He is
found internally. God must
first of all be discovered in
our hearts. Those who look
for God only in the Synago-
gue and do not look for Him
in the innermost recesses of
their own conscience are
bound to be disappointed.
Discovered In Our Hearts
Let US then remember once
for all that Cod must first b<
discovered in our own hearts
but let us remember thai
tins discovery can be made
only through the Synagogue.
Just what role the Synagogue
plays in this process of find-
ing God is stated in the verj
Psalm from which I quoted

Dr. and Mrs. Max Dobrin
and their daughter Celia left
Thursday for New York City
where Dr. Dobrin will take
past-graduate work in the
hospitals during the summer.
They expect to return to Mi-
ami in the fall. Mrs. Dobrin
who is President of the Miami
Chapter of Hadassah has
been very active in local Com-
munal work and has earned
a rest especially because of
her duties as Executive Sec-
retary of the Jewish Welfare
Bureau which she occupied.
At a meeting of Executive
Board of the Bureau held last
Tuesday she was presented
with a beautiful gift from the
members of the Board as a
token of their appreciation
for her work. The wish was
expressed that she would re-
turn to Miami greatly
strengthened for her duties.

THEATRICAL ]
The world is full of "Ger-
ties," girls who have dreamed
of things higher up on the
social ladder, reached for
them and received an unkind
spanking from fate. And that
is the experience of the cen-
tral character in Tadema
Bussiere'splay "Gerties Af-
fairs" that has just finished
its run of more than seven
months at the Bayes Theatre,
in NewYork City and will be
the attraction at the Flagler
Theatre, beginning next Sun-
day night.
"Gertie" is more than a
character; she is a type; she
is one of hundreds of thou-
sands of girls in this broad
land of ours. She has been
forced to make her own liv-
ing; she has learned to look
the world between the eyes
and, best of all, she has been
able to do this and retain her
self respect. But she meets a
young millionaire and begins
to dream 'class'; she sees her-
self as one of the smart set.
Her first step towards social
distinction is the purchase of
an ermine coatby the 'so-
much-a-month' method. She
finds the young millionaire a
bit of a rotter after all. Then
some one steals the coat and!
But the story of "Gertie"
is too interesting, too filled
with real human incidents
and genuine heart-aches to be
told here. It is also literally
packed with laughter for
"Gertie" is one of those color-
ful modern young women who
run to 1927 slang when they
wish to express htemselves.
Her English may not be
Websterian but it is colorful
and you'll howl with delight
when she expresses her opin-
ion on life.
"Gertie" is one of those
plays you want to see a sec-
ond time because it deals
with a real slice of modern
life in New York City. Tickets
are now on sale at the Flagler
Theater.
KANT AND JUDAISM
By A. A. Roback
In spite of Kant's friendly,
even intimate communion
with several outstanding Ger-
man Jews, and his warm feel-
ings toward the Jewish peo-
ple as a whole, it cannot be
said that he regarded Juda-
ism as a religion of a high
type.
Perhaps this attitude was
to be expected on several
grounds. First, there is the
personal, or more accurately,
the national reason. No mat-
ter how much the philosopher
had emancipated himself from
the dogmas of his Church, he
could not view the situation as
dispassionately as if he were
an impartial observer. Sec-
ondly, however, there seemed
something fundamental in his
Practical Reason, which ren-
dered him somewhat astigma-
tic in that respect, for we
must realize that religion to
Kant w/is an aspect of ethics.
Kant, as is well-known, laid
far more stress on the inten-
tion than on the act. "There
is nothing good without qual-
ification, except the good
will." Naturally, then, the
will is the all-important fac-
tor in ethics as well as in re-
ligion. But the Jewish pre-
cepts appeared to lay more
stress on the act, so that re-
ligion and ethics take on a le-
gal coloring in this light. Jud-
aism, he argued, is not a faith,
not even a Church, but a com
munitya body politic, and
therefore not to be compared
with Christianity which, in
his eyes, was cosmopolitan
and basic in operating the law
from within, instead of en-
forcing mere statutes.
It would be futile to enter
into the wrinkles of a contro-
versy which might be drawn
out interminably. Mendels-
sohn in his Jerusalem, even
anticipating Kant's cavils, had
already shown the value of
deeds as against mere faith
in the maintenance of a social
order. More recently Hermann
Cohen came forth as a prota-
gonist of Judaism, which he
felt had been misinterpreted
by his master. In an address
entitled "Kant und des Jud-
entum" delivered toward the
end of 1907 before the Gesell-
schaft fur dei Forderung des
Wissenschaft des Judentums,
Julius (Jacob) Guttmann a-
gain attempted to thrash out
the issue; but after all, one
may ask, whether it is worth
while to dispute matters of
religion, for as in taste, "so
many men, so many minds."
Had Kant lived to read the
many eloquent defences of
Judaism which followed Men-
delssohn's masterly apolo-
gium, he most probably
would still have harbored a
certain distrust of the Jewish
religion, unmindful of the
barbarous age in which it was
born and the conditions in the
desert which would make the
imposition of a purely ethical
religion absolutely impossible.
Indeed, even today, the
Church, with its promise of
rewards and punishments in
the hereafter, can hardly be
spoken of as an ethical organ-
ization.
Kant then, was merely par-
tial to that form of religion
in which he had been brought
up. That is about as far as we
may go in associating his
name with Judaism. But to
draw a line between Kantian-
ism and Judaism, as some of
the German professors have
done lately, is altogether ex-
ceeding the bounds of moder-
ation and common sense.
It was therefore not with-
out astonishment that I
learnt at the International
Congress of Philosophy re-
cently held in Cambridge,
that Prof. Bauch of the Uni-
versity of Jena had made the
assertion in one of his articles
that no Jew could understand
LOVE AN' ROSES
I.
cann
Love amid the roses, so what's the use o
I'll come to you, my dearie, when twilight shadows fall.
When the mockin' birds are singin'
My thoughts of you are wingin'
Love amid the roses-that's youmy all in all.
Love amid the roses-uponyour front porch waitin'
When crickets an' katydids are chirpin' in their glee.
The roses lean to kiss you.
They know how much I miss you.
Love amid the roses-that's what you are to me.
Kant. In .fact this sounded
so unphilosophical a state-
ment that I expressed my
doubts as to its authenticity,
but my informant, himself a
prominent European thinker
told further details of how
the Jewish leaders of the
Kant-Gesellschaft threatened
to resign unless Prof. Bauch
qualified his words. I decided
to look into Bauch's book on
Kant. I could hardly have
linked that well-groomed
mannerly, though a bit offish,
blonde young man with an
emotional reaction so violent
as to percolate into his ab-
stract philosophical writings.
The evidence, however, was
not long in appearing to this
extent, at any rate, that the
Jewish question was raised
by Bauch and discussed at
length. In an elaborate foot-
not, on p. 350 of the cited
work, Bauch allows himself
to remark: "Certainly dozens
of references could be adduc-
ed from Kant's writings and
correspondence, proving that
Kant had an intense aversion
for many strikingly pro-
nounced racial idiosyncrasies.
That must of course be con-
reded."
It is curious that the Jena
Professor should have chosen
not to document his rather
avowal, but to rely on a re-
port by Hamann to the effect
that Kant was never enthus-
iastic about any of the heroes
of this people. Hamann, who
it will be remembered from
the essay on Mendelssohn,
was by no means a trust-
worthy interpreter of Kant's
sentiments as regards the
Jews. It is not altogether un-
likely that Hamann, what-

ever might be said about his
philosophical acumenand at
present he is but a name-
possibly could never forgive
the Jews for their treatment
of his namesake, or perhaps
he had developed a complex
against the Jews just because
he bore such a ridiculous
name. His animosity toward
such a gentle soul as Mendels-
sohn would be sufficient to
discredit the man in our eyes
as a judge of matters Jewish.
Nor is Bauch content with
this sally alone. It is evidently
his aim "to sanctify the master
of German philosophy as a
Teuton and a Protestant, and
he would therefore not conn
tenance the slightest sugges-
tion that Kant's views could
be set in accord with Juda-
ism.
In the same work, Bauch
takes it apparently amiss that
Kroner, a rising German-Jew-
ish historian of philosophy,
should have found the Jewish
conception of an avenging and
just God more in keeping
with Kant's rigorous philoso-
phy than the idea <>r ;i
giving savior, "as if," g,
Bauch indignantly, ^
geance and justice were
separable, and justice,
and salvation irreconcila
and as if Kant had been
philosopher of Judaism,
not of Christian Protest;
morality and religion,
that is needed now," cor
ues the Jena philosophy
with unphilosophical sarcn
"is for him to be annexed
the secret synagogue coi
munity." (Immanuel Kant.
ed. p 341, footnote.)
Thus it might appear tin
Kant's sympathies, had
lived today, would have go
out to the Hakenkreuzler,
we were to take Bauch's
timations seriously. Happili
there is enough material
indicate that the celebm
philosopher w asanythingt
inimical to the people l
had produced some of
dearest friends. In my revf
of Kant's voluminous co
pondence, not a single
sage had revealed itself to
in which there was any i
gatory reference to Je
traits, while, as I have had
casiom to show, there
many proofs of his n
both for certain outstand
members of the rare and

serious crisis and he was sub-
jected to unpleasant experi-
ences which affected his
health, his friends would say
to him: "You must forget th>
past and think only of the
future. Run away from the
u n p 1 e a sant surroundings,
start life anew, and then your
health will be completely re-
stored." Such advice used to
be given also by physicians,
by neurologists who would
urge particularly their
wealthy patients suffering
from nervous anxiety to cross
the seas and to go to distant
lands in order to forget their
troubles. This prescription,
however, has invariably prov-
ed a failure, since it is a com-
mon truism that an individ-
ual can run away from every-
body and everything; he can
run away from the whole
world, but he can never run
away from himself.
Fighting The Enemy Within
In our day, however, our
knowledge of psychology has
increased considerably owing
largely to the revolutionary
contributions by Professor
Sigmund Freud, of Vienna.
Today, good physicians no
longer advise nervous pat-
ients to forget the past and
to run away from their un-
pleasant surroundings, be-
cause Freud has proved con-
clusively that a human being
never forgets anything and
that the more unpleasant the
experience the more indelibly
it is impressed upon our con-
sciousness. Basing himself
upon this fundamental prin-
ciple, Frued has evolved a
new method of curing ner-
vous people by making them
dwell persistently upon their
former trials and troubles and
thereby discovering the cause
of their worries, anxieties,
and depressions. In other
words, Freud's theory is that
if you gird your strength and
fight your enemy within, you
will conquer him, but if you
run away from him, he will
run after you. This simple
principle has been applied
successfully as a curative
measure by Freud's disciples
all over the world, and peo-
ple have been asking every-
where; How has this Vien-
nese physician made such a
remarkable discovery which
has restored the health of
thousands of people without
medicine and without trips
abroad ? The answer is: Freud
is a Jew, and a good Jew at
that, and he is very well fam-
iliar with the prayer of the
Psalmist: "Search me, O God,
and know my heart; try me
and know my thoughts; and
see if there be any way in me
that is grievous and lead me
in the way everlasting." With-
out our consciousness of our
"grievous ways" we shall
never be able to attain "the
way everlasting," or happi-
ness.

POTIPHAR'S WIFE
By Don Gordon
fianish, Isis, from my heart I pray,
This shadow of the slave who fled my kiss
And withers now in Pharaoh's cell.
i
Potiphar is slow of wit and palace days are dull;
Shall a woman lose her beauty ere it's known ?
Ah, Joseph, had you been less proud
Than priests and warriors and singers of the soul,
I might have made you master of the sons of Ra.
Fool that you were to cling to your dust and your creed.
Condemning my love and crying of sin......
Can you know what is evil until you have lived?
Yet, little Joseph, I must weep for you;
I would that those bright limbs were free once more
And I would undo all Egypt into blood
If but I might undo what I have done.
Many men have served my will and passed,
Yet you who would not barter your white youth
Possess me a thousandfold more than all the rest;
Fore even while entombed in stone you toss,
Egypt's beauty bends to Israel's strength.
it is interested in this world
more than in the other world.
Judaism aims to bring happi-
ness into the life of the Jew
but we can have no happi-
ness unless we are ready and
willing to fight unhappiness
first. For if we wish to im-
prove upon reality we must
first be conscious of it. The
Synagogue must therefore
make us see realitybut this
is something which we don't
like! All of us would flock to
the Synagogue if our ritual,
our Bible and our sermons
would tell us how great and
glorious and important we
are. But if the Synagogue
should do.that it would sim-
ply be feeding the people on
opiates which deaden pain
only temporarily but do not
cure the disease. The historic
Synagogue has been pointing
out to the people the great-
ness of God and the insignifi-
cance of man and thereby it
inspired them to conquer
more and greater worlds. And
please remember that this is
no mere rhetorical phrase, for
it is Judaism and the Syna-
gogues which have made the
Jew a most powerful factor in
the progress of human civil-
ization. Once we learn the
true function of public wor-
ship, the question ."What Can
the Synagogue Do for Me?"
would be satisfactorily ans-
wered for each and every one
of us, and we would then not
have to be urged to attend
services, for with the Psalm-
ist of old all of us would be
ready to exclaim, "I rejoiced
when they said unto me, Let
us go unto the house of the
Lord!"

BE YOURSELF
Some time ago a weekly is-
sue of "The Nation" narrated
the story of an immigrant
who became a melammed, He-
brew teacher, in New York.
Borrowing some money, the
following year he opened a
delicatessen store on the East
Side and clipped his whiskers
as his first step in American
ism. Fortune favored him and
soon he had saved enough to
buy a half-interest in a shirt-
waist establishment. With
that economic advance, he
moved his family to a modest
home in Harlem. Then came
the World War, with its in-
dustrial boom, and his busi-
ness now open on the Sabbath,
prospered beyond all expecta-
tions. Dabbling in stocks also
he counted his money in terms
six figures, bought a home on
Riverside Drive, where the
dietary laws were ignored
and later moved to Yonkers.
By this time he had sundered
all his Jewish connections and
was secretly pleased that in
his suburban residence no
Jews lived on the same block.
One day a railroad strike
was declared. When the com-
muters reached the station
that morning, they found
their train "dead" on the
track at the depot. An athle-
tic young fellow offered to
act as engineer and land the
passengers in the New York
Central Station if someone
volunteer to "fire" the en-
gine, ready to serve, when a
voice from the stranded pas-
sengers cried out "Jewish
scab." Humiliated, he des-
cended from the engine, and
returned home a saddened but
wiser man. Within three
months, he had sold his sub-
urban home, moved back to
New York, rejoined the syn-
agogue and became an ar-
dent nationalist in the cause
of ZiOn. His career was but
another proof that a Jew can-
not run away from his own.
Jonah, in the Bible, tried but
failed. So did Disraeli in Eng-
land, Herzl in Austria, Drey-
fus in Franc and Walter Ra-
thenau in Germany.

Leprosy Fight
Described Here
Progress in combating lep-
rosy in the Phillippines was
described by Benjamin Axle-
road, addressing a meeting in
Bayfront park, Wednesday
night, sponsored by the wel-
fare department of the Miami
Woman's club in observance
of Philippine day. Col. L. E.
Goodrich presided.
More than 1,000 lepers have
been cured at Culion, where
the American flag flies over
the largest leper colony in the
world, Mr. Axleroad said, and
expressed the belief that if
$2,000,000 can be accumilated
as a fund to be used in com-
bating the disease, complete
eradication will be effected.
Americans have organized
the Leonard Wood Memorial
for the Eradication of Leprosy
with headquarters in New
York, personnel of the mem-
orial including men and wo-
men of national and interna-
tional reputation, and Miami
is now coming forward in sup-
port of the movement, Mr.
Axleroad added. He also call-
ed attention to the meeting
as a commemoration of Ad-
miral Dewey's victory in
Manila bay, May 1, 1898.
Musical numbers on the
program arranged by cour-
tesy of the Mana-Zucca Music
club, were operatic selections
sung by Sonya Snowe, accom-
panied by Miss Francis Tar-
boux, and vocal solos by Maj.
McKinley Ashe.
Community singing of the
"Star Spangled Banner," and
invocation by Dr. W. T.
Brooks, founder of the Rock-
ing church at Haines City,
opened the meeting. Other
musical numbers were ensem-
ble singing led by L. Kash
Strother, special selections by
Mrs. Ralph Fuzzard, presi-
dent of the Miami Music club,
accompanied by Cecile Wrink-
le, and a duet by Mrs. V. T.
Brooks and Mr. Strother.
Mr. Axleroad has been
prominent in local Communai
affairs for quite some time
and is one of the prominent
Jewish members of the local
Bar. Mrs. Axleroad is Presi-
dent of the local Council of
Jewish Women.
