Junior Hadassah to
Open Year at Tea
With the thought in mind of
having friendliness as the basis of
organization activities, Junior Ha
dassah is opening the season with
a tea to be held Sunday afternoon,
September 22, at the Jacksonville
Jewish Center. Miss Ruth Davis,
president, will preside.
Miss Dorothy Schemer, hospi
tality chairman, with her commit
tee consisting of Edith Wolf son,
Mae Schweitzer, Eunice Davis, Ju
lia Mizrahi, Doris Weiss, Iris Noo
dleman, Miriam Rosenthal, and
Naomi Rosenberg are carefully
laying plans to make this affair
enjoyable to all. An interesting
program is being prepared, and
Mrs. Isadore Moscovitz, senior-ju
nior advisor, will address the gath
ering on a timely topic.
Through Junior Hadassah, the
Jewish girl takes part in the most
significant Jewish movement of
modern times. The rich store of
Jewish knowledge is open to her
through the organization’s varied
and extensive educational work,
enlivened by group discussions.
Through Zionism every Jewish
girl can be part of a vital cur
rent in Jewish constructive effort.
At the same time she enjoys the
social life of the Junior Hadassah
unit and the interest and friendli
ness of its members.
Hillel Hy-Lites
With the first day of Freshman
week, Tuesday, September 10, the
University of Florida officially op
ened its doors for the school term
of 1940-41, and with the last day
of Freshman Week, Hillel at the
University of Florida opened its
doors for the school year at 507
South Ninth Street. Dr. David M.
Eichorn, director of Hillel at the
University, took part in welcom
ing the Freshman class at the Con
vocation held on Saturday, Sep
tember 14. At that time he intro
duced Hillel to the Jewish stu
dents, explaining the role of Hil
lel in their ensuing school years.
Dr. Eichorn also took part in the
reception given by Dr. Tigert,
president of the University, for
the Freshman class on Saturday
evening, September 14.
While at Tallahassee, Dr. Eich
orn was present at the reception
given for the Freshmen co-eds,
and welcomed the Jewish girls in
to Hillel at that time.

The President has asked for a
thorough investigation of the food
situation in Europe, and the re
sults are proving what has long
been suspected—that if the Nazis
had not looted as much food as
they could from occupied regions,
there would be no fear of famine.
Significantly, on the day the new j

bassador arrived, and announced,

making new demands on France
for food supplies.

made at an early date.
Hollywood “The Great Dicta
tor” in on the wing. . . but the
suspense is awful! No one knows
where or when it will alight. It
was screened for a small group of
Chaplin’s friends, who pronounced
it the geratest of his career. It is
set for a two-dollar top at Carthay
Circle Theatre. . . but the open
ing date is not yet revealed.
Chaplin described his epic as
“timeless” because its subject is
the persecution of a people —a
never-ending historical theme. He
asserts “the film tries to do for
the Jew what ‘Uncle Tom’s Cab
in’ did for the Negro.”
It is virtually a one-man job—
Chaplin wrote the story and sce
nario, produced, directed, cut,
composed and synchronized it. And
it is the first time in his twenty
seven years of acting that he
breaks through pantomine with a
speaking role.

continent. On the other hand, Nazi

troubles. If the Department kicks
out the offending Nazis, whose
ringleader is the notorious Fritz
Weidemann, in San Francisco, the
Nazis will retaliate. Gone would
be every listening post in Europe.
There’ll be an explosion on this
matter, soon.
