We have received a large number of inquiries from our Jewish and non-Jewish
subscribers and advertisers for the true facts in connection with the obtaining of
donations by a so-called weekly paper through the use of the name of Beth David
In fairness to the congregation, its officers and board of trustees, we are with-
holding publication of any story in connection with it, at the request of Mr. Lewis
Brown, president; of Beth David, to afford him the opportunity of addressing let-
ters to each donor in which the attitude of the Congregation and a true statement
of facts will be made.
The Jewiish Floridian does not exist for the purpose of exploiting any congre-
gations or to hurt any congregations or individual. We desire to build and not de-
stroy, and we have sufficient confidence in the officers of Beth David to know that
they will right the wrong c~aused.

Bull Movement (2,700 Miles)
The first "bullish" trend to oc-
cur in wall Street in a long time
happened when a large-hatted
Texan rode into town astride a1
thousand-pound Mexican bull nam-
ed Jerry to see Mayor Walker.
He rode Jerry all the way from
Brownsville, Texas, to the Brook-
lyn bridge, making 2,700 miles in
254 days. The Texan said that
they caused quite a commotion

The Mayor, however, was ill,
and couldn't extend the city's of-
ficial welcome to the Wall Street

So read a sign painted on a
large square of cardboard pinned
on an overcoat worn by a young
man standing on a New York

His ingenuity was rewarded.
After several hours of waiting, a

conferred in low tones. The
young man listened, smiled, tore
up the sign and walked off with
his newly acquired employer.

Harlem Hoofers' Hope
Out in Harlem, that dusky sec-
tion glorified by Amos 'n' Andy,
the wishing tree in front of the
,Lafayette theatre is doing a land
office business.
It is the haven of hope for job-
less negro actors. The more super-
stitious Harlem Thespians believe
that if ia-jobless actor sits in front
of the tree on a milk can and
wishes for a job he will get it.
Sitting on a milk can isn't abso-
lutely essential, but it helps, they
The myth started in 1927. A
negro hoofer was sitting on a milk
container in front of the tree and
remarked to a bystander that he
certainly wished he had a job. At
that moment the manager of the
theatre emerged and engaged him
to take the place of an actor who
had become ill. Since then, it has
been considered that the tree has
the power to bring good luck.
Big shots in the negro theatri-
cal and athletic world bow to the
tree in passing, and some mana-
gers do their booking under its
branches when they come to New
Y to sign performers.

Cemetery Association Unanimousc-
ly Endorses Organization

The Sisterhood of Chesed Shel
Emes, an organization of local
Jewish women whose object it is
to provide free burial for the poor
and who is the owner of three
hundred lots in the Jewish section
of Woodlawn cemetery, received
recognition for its splendid work
at a meeting of the Greater Mi-
ami Jewish Cemetery Association
last Thursday night.
Upon resolution unanimously
adopted the organization voted to
admit the organization as a full-
fledged member of the association
with the'right to three delegates
as are accorded to the other or-
ganizations and synagogues who
~are affiliated with the cemetery

the meeting were Mrs. Manuel
Rippa, Mrs. Morris Kotkin and
Mrs. Sol Schwartz.

Rabbi iMeyer Berlin Cited to Ap-
pear Because of Unpaid Bill

JERUSALEM. Many inquiries
have been received in Jerusalem
regarding the purported arrest of
Rabbi Meyer Berlin, world re-
nowned rabbi and leader of the
world Mizrachi Zionist movement.
Upon investigation it was found
that Rabbi Berlin was, asked to
appear before one of the courts
to testify regarding an unpaid bill
of one of the employes of the lo-
cal Mizrachi headquarters.
To protect the name of the or.
gaiffsiafin, Rabok~'erin agreed to
pay the bill of the employe and
the incident was ended. From this
arose the rumor that the rabbi
had been arrested.


Plans for the High Holiday ser_
vices for the Miami Jewish Or-
thodox Congregation have been
completed. Rabbi Isaac M. Wap-
ner will be in charge of the ser-
vices and preach the sermons on
both days of Rosh Hashono and
on Yom Kippur. He will be as-
sisted by Cantor Nathan Wroobel,
who will chant the Musof services
on Rosh Hashono and the Kol
Nidre, Musof and Neilah services
on Yom Kippur. In charge of
seating arrangements is a commit-
tee consisting of Messrs. Drevichn,
Futterfass, Adelman, Mechlowitz
and Kupferstein. The large win-
dow in the front of the synagogue
which has been stationary has
been changed to open completely
for a better ventilation, and fans
are being installed, which together
with the many windows in the
synagogue will afford a very cool
and comfortable auditorium dur-
ing all the services. Prices for
the rentals of sed'ts have been set

pounced that they will provide

mittees of the synag~olgues.

Jewish Political

Plans for the organization of a
Jewish political club are now in
the process of formation by a
number of the Democratic Jewish
citizens of Miami*
At a meeting held here this
week a number of citizens who
have been active in the political
work of Miami as well as their
home cities in the north expressed
their belief that such an organiza-
tion would be a benefit to the
county at large and insure the
fuller participation of Jewish citi-
se~ns ipn the~Civie work .g~~Ltheapmll

An invitation will be issued
within the next several weeks for
a public meeting at which the or-
ganization will be formally start-

ing prominent citizens and inviting
them to take part in the prehim-
inary work of the organization ac-

bers of this committee that al-

David Sholtz Announced As Can-
didate at Testinmenial Dinner
Informal announcement of Dave
Sholtz's intention to seek the
Democratic gubernatorial nomina-
tion was made Wednesday night
by Burton L. Mank, toastmaster,
at a testimonial dinner to M.
Sholtz here.
More than 200 guests were pres-
ent when Mr. Mank asserted Mr.
Sholtz would make his formal an-
nouncement from his home at
Daytona Beach in the near future.
Other speakers included Wayne
Allen, Judge George W. Davis,
Frank Jones and Arthur O'Hea,
mayor of Dania.
In a brief speech which follow-
ed Mr. Mank's announcement, Mr.
Sholtz said he advocated national
advertising of the state's attrac-
tions, expert study of the tax
problems to find a remedy if pos-
sible, free books in the public
school system and reduction of the
7-cent gasoline tax.
William P. Mooty was chairman
of arrangements for the dinner,
which was held at the McAllister

Novelist These confounded
critics roasted my new novel unl-
mercifully .
Friend--Well, you have your re-
venge--they had to read the book,
didn't they ?

The last time I talked with Mr.
Edison I asked him how long he
was going to keep on working.
"I'm never going to stop," he
said, "unless my stomach goes
back on me. There's where most
men give out first, in their diges-
"There's only one rule for keep-
ing young," he went on. "That is
to watch your digestion and never
stop working. That's the impor-
tant thing--never stop working.
Keep your mind active. The brain
is more durable than any other
part of the body.,,
Mr. Edison was 81 when he said
that, and was launching into a new
line of research with the enthusi-
asm of a boy. He was as interest-
ed in everything new as he was
when he was twenty.
As long as the gangsters in the
big cities confined their activities
to shooting each other up there
was very little public protest. But
when five children were shot, one
of them fatally, in ~a New York
gang battle, the authorities began
to get active. It is my guess that
the clean-up movement in New
York at least has actually started,
and that there will be less toler-
ance of murder and less sympa-
thy for m ~derers in the near fu-
In the long run, law and order
are always triumphant. If that
were not so the world would be in
a state of anarchy today. There
would be no organized crime if all
of the organized forces which are
supposed to prevent and punish
crime were faithful to their ap-
pointed tasks.
Newton Baker drove thousands
of people to their encyclopedias
the other day when, in the course
of his speech at the Institute of
Politics, he said that "of course,
Appenzell is the only true democ-
racy." Not one out of ten thou-
sand of those who heard or read
Baker's speech had ever heard of
Appenzell. It is one of the little
independent states which form a
part of the Swiss Federation. It
is in the northeast of Switzerland,
and has about 70,000 population.
The only government it has is a
sort of magnified town meeting
at which everybody votes.
The oldest of all republics is
San Marino, in the Italian Alps,
which has existed unchanged since
400 A. D. and is still governed by
the old Roman laws and customs.
But San Marino is not a pure de-
mocracy in the sense that Appen-
zell is, and neither is Andorra,
that other tiny European republic
which is entirely surrounded by
Spain but which is under the pro-
tection of the French government

George Bernard Shaw came back
from Russia enthusiastic over what
he had been permitted to see. Lady
Astor, who accompanied him, was
equally enthusiastic. They saw, as
all visitors to Russia see, what the
authorities permitted them to see.
If one thing can be more cer-
tain than anything else, it is that
the truth about Russia and the
condition of the people does not
get out of Russia. Neither does
the truth about the rest of the

world get into Russia. All Russian
news apers are controlled and
prac)tcally edited by the Soviet

government. News. from America
that is permitted to be printed
presents this country in the most
unfavorable light and is intended
to make Russian workers and
peasants believe that they are the
most fartunate people in the
world. News coming out of Russia
is controlled also by the govern-
This results in making intelli-
gent people in each country high-
ly suspicious of the other. The~e
is no chance for a friendly under-
standing between Russia and the
rest of the world until freedom of
speech and of the press are estab-
lished in Russia.
Paris dressmakers have decreed
tight corsets, smaller waists and
longer skirts for women. Ameri-
can women say they won't stand
for it, but they will. Woman's
greatest fear is that she will look
different from other women.
That goes for men, too. Men's
fashions don't change as often as
women's, but they are just as
foolish. Fashion says we must wear
coats in the presence of ladies. No
matter how hot the greather a
man without a coat is not admit-
ted to the best restaurants, hotels
and theatres. That is absurd, but
it derives from ancient custom,
which originated in the effort to
distinguish a gentleman from a
working man. A servant could go
coatless but the coatless gentle-
man might easily be mistaken for
a servant. Nothing is truer than
that the 'clothes make the' man.
When King Christian of Denmark
was found dead in the street in
Copenhagen, a few years ago, no-
body recognized him because he
was wearing ordinary clothes in-
stead of royal regalia.

Saloniki is in a state of security
and tranquility, according to offi-
cial reports received by the Amer-
sican Jewish Congress. These re-
ports indicate that the governor of
Saloniki has succeeded in re-es-
tablishing order and that the anti-
Semitic wave, which threatened ec
overwhelm Greece, has been defi-
nitely stemmed. One cannot help
but compare the efficient manner
in~ which the Greek government
handled the anti-Jewish outbreaks,
with the indifference of the Ru-
manian government at the time of
the anti-Semitic persecutions. This
is simply additional evidence-if
it were needed--that a govern-
ment determined to halt anti-Se-
mites when they become physical-
ly dangerous can do so. Witness
Soviet Russia. Anti Semitism
there has not simply evaporated.
It still exists in circles opposed to
the government. But the Soviet
government places all anti-Semitic
disturbances on the crime register,
punishable in some instances by
death. The government of Greece
has regained the respect of the
civilized world by its efficient and
stern attitude toward the anti-Se-
mitic hoodlums.

was a pageant, "The Skyline of
New York," in which sfiyseraper
architects appeared in costumes
representing buildings which they
designed. The Chrysler building
outfit consisted of silver metal
cloth trimmed with black patent
leather, sash and lining of flame
color and silver, and the cape, put-
tees and cuffs of flexible wood.
The headdress was an exact re-
plica of the building's tower.
An amusing feature of the ball
was an exhibition of modern art
in speakeasies.

For Remembrance
A well-known radio crooner got
a decisive answer to his plea for
"something to remember you by"
when he appeared in a Boston the-
atre. Grapefruit, slightly shop-
worn, and' eggs of uncertain age
came his way, allegedly propelled
by college boys up in the balcony.
He came out ahead, however.
After a speech reminding those
who didn't like his work that they
were not forced to stay and lis-
ten, he sang "Ninety-Nine Out of
a Hundred Like It, Why Don't
You ?" The audience applauded his
good nature and quick wit.

A certain friend of mine prospered mightily in his business andi.,
investments. I used to see him often, and it distressed me to observel
that his increase in wealth had apparently added nothing to his peace.
of mind. He seemed to be always worried. His health was not to
good. With each added million he developed a new complaint.
The other day I saw him again for the first time in nearly a year.:
His eyes shone. He was full of pep and plans--a wonderful trans-
1' ,
"You know, I used to talk about retiring," he said, "and :I had~
just about made up my mind to do it when the stock market erkshi 1.'
Then I discovered that I couldn't afford to retire.
''I've go e back to work, and it's the greatest. tonic I ever hu~
I doubt now if I'll ever retire. When you come to think of~ it, 'le
added, idlenesss is just a form of suicide."'
The phrase is striking, but the thought which it expresses~i~9
new. Many men have made the same discovery, and usually at~ the:
price of unhappiness.
Charles Lamb, when released at last from his drudgery of desk
work at the India office, cried out that he would not go back to his
"prison for ten thousand pounds."
"I am free! ~Free as air!" he wrote ecstatically to a friend. "I
will live another fifty years. Positively the best thing a man can
do is nothing."
Two years passed. Idleness lost its charm. Time, which .had
seemed to pass slowly when he was chained to a job, now hung around
his neck like a millstone. With his days free for writing he actually~
wrote less than in the years when, with all their dull routine, he had'
been stimulated by daily contact with the active world.'
"I assure you no work at all irl worse than overwork; the mindl~
preys ort itself--thes most uinwholesome of food." So he wrote to. the
same friend. "I have ceased to care for almost anything. ~'Never did
the waters of heaven pour down` on~ a forlorn head. What can I do,,
and overdo, is to walk. I am a sailguinary murderer of time. But
the oracle is silent." a
Henry Thoreau, who saw many ~things clearly, looked forward to.
n time when every man's life word#~ be reasonably divided between
hard work and happy~ leisure. 'j

Like the river that takes its rise
in the distant hills, gradually
courses its way through the coun-
try, passing alike through sublime
landscape and hideous morass, of-
fering its banks for the founda-
tion of great cities, its waters en-
riched and modified by the tribu-
taries that gradually flow towards
it, until it at last loses itself in1
the ocean: so Judaism, taking its
rise among the mountains of Si-
nai, slowly and steadily has ad-
vanced; passing alternately thru
a golden age of toleration and in
an iron age of persecution, giving
its moral code for the foundation
of many a government; modified
by the customs and modes of life
of each nation through which it
has passed, chastened and enrich-
ed by centuries of experience--
shall I say, as I said with the
river, that it, too, at last loses it-
self in the great sea of humanity?
No! rather like the Gulf Stream,
which, passing through the vast
Atlantic Ocean, part of it, and yet
distinct from it, never losing its
individuality, but always detected
by its deeper color and warmer
temperature, until it eventually
modifies the severe climate of a
distant country: so Tudaism, pass-
.ing through all the nations of the
old world, part of them, and yet
distinct from them, ever recog-
nized by its depth and intensity,
has at. last reached thiis new world
without having lost its individual.

the loftiness of its ethical ~truth
and by the purity of its principles,

[From an Unpublished Letter of
Lady Lytton's to Her Cousin]

The fact that the late Lady Lyt-

actly the same setting in which
she saw and knew them, without
any unnecessary embellishment,
gives the pictures portrayed in her
letters added value for the his-
torian. The nive and move on the

the Earl of Beaconsfield, in her
unpublished letters to her cousin,

She gives a vivid description of

The rising Hebrew politician
was not much appreciated at that
time by the company among whom
he moved "in splendid isolation."
She heard many a half whispered
comment--which also assailed his
own ears--on his audacity in seek-
ing a place among the representa-
tives of the country, which he
looked upon as his native land; and
few were the friendly greetings
extended to him.
Taking his seat in a quiet cor-
ner, the grave, self-contained
young man entertained himself by
watching the gay throng moving
like a kaleidoscope before him.
And we can well conjecture what
bitter thoughts against Gentile
ostracism must have passed
through his mind on that, and
many similar occasions, but which
was never resented by his noble
nature in his days of power.
Towards the close of the ev-
ning, he at length rose from his
seat, and crossed the room to de-
part; when, amid smothered laugh-
ter, it was observed that the
wicker back of the chair had left
an impress on the soft velvet of
his coat. A wave of suppressed
delight thrilled the company,
while some of the more hardy au-

At a recent meeting of the
board of trustees of Beth David
Congregation, Mr. Harry Isaacs,
a former trustee of the congrega-
tion, was unanimously chosen to
fill the vacancy caused by the
resignation of Mr. A. Pepper.
Mr. Isaacs, who has been a resi-
dent of Miami for the past six
years, is a former resident of
Brooklyn, N. Y., where he was
one of the founders and most act-
ive figures in the establishment of
the Home for Incurables.

on that body was Dr. Cyrus Adler,

'Committee. Now we hear that
Prof. John Dewey, distinguished
philosopher, has named his own
Committee of One Hundred. This
group is to "fight the conditions
which create Reds."
Among the Jewish leaders who
accepted membership on the com-
mittee are Rabbis Louis Wolsey
of Philadelphia and David Lefko-

cannot but compare the purpose
of the two committees. To the im-

During dinner, the master of the
house displayed towards his wife
the spontaneous courtesy which
always graced his manners to-

so natural to him, that he never
dreamed of its being specially no-
ticed by others.

upon his questioner.
"Osborne," he said slowly.
"Have you ever heard of the word
'gratitude'? Have you ever under-
stood its meaning?"
As his abashed interrogator re-
mained silent, he continued:
