Music To My Ears
Well, here we are rounding the
corner into June and It’s time to
talk of vacation. Many of our
front-rank musicians who would
ordinarily be going to Europe are
steering clear of that continent
in this year of the war and are
finding other ways of occupying
themselves, some at work and
some at play.
While Rome burns, Jascha Hei
fetz is fiddling in South America,
and, from all reports, is setting
new attendance records. During
his stay in Rio de Janeiro, he par
ticipated) in a benefit for the Bra
zilian Jewish Relief Committee.
In Rio he also gave an interview
to Jewish newspapermen during
which he said, among other things:
his( most enthusiastic audience he
had found in Palestine’s ' Jezreel
Valley; he is far from Jewish ac
tivities, partly because Jewish
leaders in America have done noth
ing to attract him to Zionism;
“I am a violinist and not a dip
lomat; we have diplomats, but we
haven’t violinists.” On his return
from South America in July, Hei
fetz will retire to his home in
Balboa, California.
Yehudi Menuhin, his Sydney
concern manager cables, is en
joying “unprecedented success” on
a vacation tour of Australia. His
tour is meant as a birthday gift
for his wife, who hails from Mel

For those of you who spend your
vacations in New York (the Fair
is the safest way of seeing the
world this summer), the Stadium
Concerts people have outdone
themselves in program planning.
Artur Rodzinski of the Cleveland
Orchestra will be at the Stadium
for the first time, conducting ten
concerts. Hans Wilhelm Steinberg,
formerly conductor of the Pales
tine Symphony Orchestra, also
makes his first Stadium appear
ance. Not to mention Marian An

soloists, Oscar Levant starring in
the George Gershwin memorial
concert July 11 and a goodly num

Flagstad here this Summer.)

tially awakened state, my senses
half deadened by sleep it seemed
that the boy must have returned
to earth from centuries past . . .
“Peace on ear-th . . . Good will
to me-en. . . Gloree-ee . . .” his
soft voice echoed through the mor
ning. . . How unreal were his sen
timents. . . how unreal the sweet
strains themselves! . . .1 could
have told him so much that would
have surprised him. . . Those
things, boy, I could have said, be
long to the past, at that mythical
time when men believed in the
principle of brotherly love mid
when God’s law and his command
ments were accepted by the multi
tude. .. Yes, I know, boy, that was
only thirty days ago, your age. < .
but a million slaughtered men and
a weeping continent separates
your time from mine ... Go back,
boy, you are outmoded. . . The
very fact that you sing shows
that ... Go back!
Unreal . . . everything seems
unreal. . . The operators in the

Could it have been Grace who was
telling me of the architect who
lives in her apartment house and
who speaks only German in. his
home. . . The architect is employed
in the Naval base, and we all
agreed with her that he is prob
ably a spy. . . Three weeks ago
anyone who would have made such
a statement would have been ridi
culed. . . Now things are running
in the opposite extreme. . . We are
calling everyone a spy. . .
Commissioner Anders wants to
register all aliens. . . there is
probably a comissioner in every
city who wants to do the same
thing and who has the strong
backing of public opinion. . . In
the hysteria of the moment we
are walking right into the trap
laid by the powers behind the
fifth columns . . . Their spies don’t
come among us with the open as
sertion that they are foreigners.
. . . More often than not they are
not aliens, but American citizens
born and educated here. . .They
are here before us, not hiding
around the corner, but running
for public office and having a
most evident influence on society.
From Bradenton, Fla., comes a
magazine openly sympathetic with
the Nazi cause. . . In every large
city there is a German consul. . .
In Jax he is accepted in high so
cial circles and is a member of a
prominent law firm. . . And right
before our noses Herr Sam B.
Melson, running for the state leg
islature, sprouting Jew-baiting
Nazi propaganda, shoots his mouth
off and is hailed by an American
audience. . . And the bunds in Or
lando mid Miami goose step in
open daylight and fly the swasti
ka. . . These are our fifth col
umns, not the alien who has lived
in perfect faith among us and who
would be glad to aid the forces
of democracy should this country
be invaded.

day morning your editor leaves
for a week’s journey to Tallahas
see, Pensacola, Mobile and points
en route, and we envy him the
opportunity of renewing old ac
quaintances. . . Not until you are
out on the road meeting one Jew
ish community after another do
you realize! the strong chain that
binds us all together, and not un
til then do you realize that if we
put aside our petty differences
and stopped playing at politics
within the Jewish circles to what
heights American Jewry could rise
pas a force for good for world Jew
ry and for America. . . Our sin
cere and unselfish workers far
outweigh those who are active in
Jewish circles just to have the
pleasure of hearing their own voi
ces. . . Yet our Feuhrers control
most of our communities simply
because they can shout the loud
est and ugliest. . . Os course, not
all of our communities are true
to type, but where they do sprout
dictators there are always the
same signs: poor attendance to
meetings of the Jewish organiza
tions and small cliques forming
their own clubs so that the city
is overly-organized and fails to
produce results in any direction.
We have seen this too plainly in
Jacksonville not to recognize it in
other cities. . . And we have seen
the situation keep this communi
ty backward too long not to de
plore it everywhere.
