“The strength of a nation, es

people.”—Mrs. Sigourney.
Reader’s Digest reprinted it. . .
So, now all Jacksonville is puffed
up about it. . .Saw Mickey Kramer
shopping eagerly in town the other
day. . .She said the new addition
was well at home in bed. . .Speak
ing of shopping, it makes us stop
and try to remember when Pass
over ever came so much later than
Easter as it does this year. East
er is March 24th, and Passover
is exactly a month later. . .And
while we are on the topic of Pass
over we just thought of the re
mark someone made about the va
rious charities sending matzos to
the poverty stricken and war-tom
in Europe. “Gracious,” quothed
he, “just think of those people
eating matzos after being under
nourished for so long! What do
you suppose it will do to their
constitutions?”. . .The J. J. Hell
mans have sold their business on
the Southside and are visiting in
Atlanta now. Mrs. Heilman as
sured us that she wasn’t leaving
Jax, and would be back in about
three weeks. . .Rabbi Kaplan’s re
view of the “Nazarene” soothed
a few disturbed souls who had
read Sholem Asch’s latest book.
Many here couldn’t understand
why some Jewish leaders con
demned the work when the author
so beautifully portrayed Jesus as
a human being. . .Friends of Mrs.
Maude Robinson will be glad to
learn that she is recovering from
a thyroid operation in St. Vin
cent’s hospital. . .Our family has
finally gotten down with a round
lof colds—just when the weather
turned so beautifully Springy. . .
It always happens to us that way.

family as they congratulated Reu

. . .We couldn’t help remarking
at the concert how much the
closing selection, the beautiful
tone poem by Smetana, The Mol
dau,” reminded us of “H’Tikvah.”
The themes are almost identical.
