predicted great things for this
youngster on the collegiate battle
front. Their expectations have
been more than fulfilled and now
Jay Fidler, in his second year of
Varsity play for Brown University
is expected to be a national stand
out. ‘
Up at Brown, (and Brown is a
blue-ribbon football school) Fidler
is known as the apple-pedler.
Jay came by this curious appella
tion because of his business acu
men. It is an interesting story
and we’ll pass it on to you. First
let us say that Fidler is at Brown
on a scholarship that he won not
only because of his athletic prow
ess on the baseball diamond, the
gridiron and in sundry other
arenas but also because he is a
brilliant student as well. None
theless, he never was at all ad
verse when it came to making a
few extra dollars even if it meant
additional hard work during an
arduous football season. His idea
was a simple one. He wanted to
sell apples to the students at
Brown on the Honor System. He
arranged apple stands in four
prominent spots on the campus
with the following legend printed
above his wares: “Buy an apple.
Drop the nickle in the box. You’re
on your honor.” Before he could
get this concession from the pow
ers that be, Fidler had to inter
view each of the seven deans at
Brown. Each dean approved of
the idea but added a comment
that though the idea was a good
one, it was a dubious proposition
and would never work out. Fidler
won his point and this apple bus
iness nets him a tidy sum each
week.
Tu s s McLaughry, erstwhile
football mentor at Brown who
was tempted from the Providence
campus by the more lucrative of
fers of Dartmouth College had
this to say of Jay Fidler: “Jay is
one of the finest football tackles
I’ve ever had the pleasure to
watch. He’s fast and alert and
aggressive. He’s brainy and pow
erful and is seldom sucked in by
the opposing team. Before Fidler
is through at Brown, he’ll be a
national byword and a household

figure. Keep your eye on Jay.
He’s the one man I’d like to take
along with me to Dartmouth.”
What Tuss said a year ago, the
sport magazines and the sport
writers are saying today. Wheth
er you look at the Illustrated
Football Annual or the Collegiate
Football Round-up or any of the
dozen football magazines on the
newsstands today, you’re bound to
come across the legend: “Keep
your eye on Fidler of Brown.
He’s, going places.”
The reason we’re so het up and
so hepped up about this Fidler
fellow is a simple one. We sel
dom hear of an outstanding Jew
ish line-man who can really col
lect his shares of all-American
honors. Outstanding Jewish back
field men are a dime a dozen.
We can mention ten all-American
backs who are Jewish to one top
notch man on the first line of de
fense. But with the line-men who
have been prominent in the nat
ional picture, the story is another
one altogether. Thus, Fidler is a
find. He is a natural. Keep your
eye on Brown this year and keep
your mind on Fidler. We’ll be
back in a couple of weeks with
another story on this 190 pound
gargantuan muscle man.
It is interesting to note that
Fidler has been approached by
several Hollywood scouts. His re
semblance to Ray Milland is a
startling one and according to the
scouts—any guy who looks like
Ray Milland and who can play
football like Fidler is a strong bet
to become Hollywood’s favorite
son.
Our Film Folks
Nazi-made films ... in both oc
cupied and unoccupied territory...
keep the French audiences away
in droves. Free tickets and ex
pensive exploitation do not quick
en the population’s picture pulse.
Tobis, German company, produc
ing French dialogue films in Paris,
finds adamant opposition or com
plete indifference to the booking
of its wares. On the other hand,
the French relish American films
with subtle anti-Nazi thrusts. One
I such sequence in “Good bye, Mr.
Chips” delighted them for weeks
until the Nazi censor discovered
and deleted it.
Reeling ’Round: Studios are
angling for Danny Kaye, the
Broadway favorite, doing a stretch
at a Hollywood night club, but
he’ll probably bounce right back
to New York before tangling
with the celluloid. Out of pro
bate comes the appraisal of the
late “Uncle” Carl’s estate —it ex
ceeded two-and-a-half million.
Kleri Dolly, daughter of the late
Jenny Dolly, is one of the girls in
Earl Carroll’s Revue. The kiss
promised by Paulette Goddard to
the winner of the aluminum
gathering contest will have to be
put on ice until the actress recov
ers from a bronchial cold. Under
the new ruling of Congress, Gar
son Kanin, along with other top
notch film folk, will be permitted
to resign from the army. He is
29. Chaplain’s “Dictator” got the
bar in Siam —Japan is doing a bit
of its own dictating in those
parts. Newsreel footage from
Russia arrived in the U. S. this
week ... is described as not
spectacular, but grim and power
ful.

1— It Was announced in Pales

daism after the destruction of the

3 Explorations conducted by a
professor at the Hebrew Univer
sity have uncovered several com
munities of Jews in Persia who
still speak Aramaic. Os what
people is Aramaic the native

ly?
ANS.—Aramaic is the ancient
tongue most akin to Hebrew. It
became the common Jewish lan
guage in about 300 B. C. E. It is
practically extinct today
4 A London paper reported
early this month that Herschel
Grynzpan had been tortured to
death by the Gestapo Who was
he?
ANS.—Herschel Grynzpan was
the Polish Jewish youth who as
sassinated Ernst von Rath, third
secretary of the Nazi legation in
Paris in November, 1938. The von
Rath murder was used as a pre
text by the Nazis for one of the
most destructive pogroms against
the Jews of Germany. Grynzpan
fell into Nazi hands in 1940 after
the fall of France.
