Southeastern Masada
Clubs Will Convene
Here on Labor Day
Masada, Y outh Zionist Organization of America, is hold
ing a Regional Conclave over the Labor Day week end in
icksonville.
United States and other lands in the next few
days, and another 2,000 by early September.
He reported that outbreak of war between
Germany and Russia had created vast new
areas of Jewish distress, pointing out that organ
izations and institutions founded and supported
by the J.D.G during the past quarter-century
are on the spot to deal with the need, given the
financial support of American Jews. •
Masada is youthful in two ways,
is youthful because its members
•gin their career in the organ
ation at the age of eighteen,
asada is young also because the
ganization was started but a
w years ago and is now begin
ng to reap the rewards which
sre due the efforts of the pio
*;ers of the movement.
The movement has taken long
• to develop in the South but
tely new chapters have come in
• being and it is now felt desh -
ale to foVm a Southeastern Re
on so that efforts can be com
ned and made more productive.
Masada is a stepping stone be
veen Young Judea and the Zion
t Organization of America. In
[asada, the seeds of Zionism
iwed patiently during Young
idea days, begin to sprout and
ike shape. Masada gives its
iembers the opportunity to ex
ress their thoughts and to act
pon them creatively and thereby
lins the youth to take leader
ip in the senior organization
on their graduation.
While once a year there is a
itional Convention, the members
the Southeastern Chapters have
pressed their desire to create
is Southeastern Region for the
irpose of collaboration, exchange
' ideas and friendly rivalry in
$2.00 a Year
their individual achievements dur
ing the entire year.
It is hoped that many young
people who may not at present be
long to Masada, or who live where
there is no Chapter, will attempt
to attend the Conclave.
Plans have been made to hold
the Convention in the Seminole
Hotel in Jacksonville. The local
chapter will play host to the del
egates and has already gone far
in arrangements. It is hoped that
the first visitors will arrive Sat
urday, August 30th, and a recep
tion room has been placed at the
disposal of Masada during the
week end. Sunday luncheon will
be held at the hotel in conjunction
with Junior Hadassah which is<
also holding a regional meeting
and the two societies, identical in
their work, will join for the lunch
eon. Afterwards, Masada will get
down to the business of the day
using the committee rooms pro
vided by the hotel. A cocktail
party has been arranged for late
in the evening and this will be .
followed by the Jacksonville
Chapter's Second Annual Labor
Day Dance starting at ten o’clock
in the Silver Ball Room 'of the
Seminole Hotel. All visitors are
invited to this dance. Monday
morning and afternoon will be de
voted to business broken by a
buffet luncheon.

Demonstration In Paris
VICHY, (JTA)—The first or

three months,” the women invad

attacked the employees. The po
lice arrived and ejected the dem
onstrators from the building, but
