JEWS In UNIFORM
* BY BEN SAMUEL
"THAR SHE BLOWS!”: A cur
tons atmosphere and many a wierd
ie shrouds the stone building in
SL Bedford, Mass., which is now
nermanentiy rented as a USO Cen
teroperated by the Jewish Wel-
JL, Board. The old grey edifice
with its ancient (but serviceable)
plumbing, its gas Ught and faded
wail paper, on property owned by
the Grace Church of New York,
was built by a whaling captain
122 years ago. The USO will
equip the building with electricity
and maple furniture,
A certain old boarded-up door,
for example, which was closed up
forever by the whaling captain
when his young bride had eloped
through it with a younger man,
will not be touched. A “widow’s
walk,” used by fishermen’s wives
to scan the sea for their men at
supper time, will be left intact.
“ To the 15 rooms of the new, yet
old, USO Center in New Bedford
will come soldiers of the surround
ing Massachusetts forts to relax,
but the Jewish Welfare Board will
not be responsible for ghostly
footsteps or pianos that play
themselves at midnight.
UP TO THE OLD MARK: When
Aguinaldo was cutting up the
Philippines some 40 years ago, a
young man named Abraham Mark
was serving with Uncle Sam’s
forces trying to put down the re
bilion. Young Mark fought over
the ground that within the past
two months has once; more flamed
into history. Mark survived that
fight and in due time returned
to the States. He settled in Cal
ifornia, married, had children and
lose to a place of prominence in
his home city, Los Angeles. For
a time he served as Commission
er of Health in Los Angeles and
today is an active realtor there. -

But through these years names
such at Fort Stotsenburg, Subic
Bay, Bataan, remained vividly in
his memory. Now he wishes he
were back there with MacArthur’s
forces—and there is a special rea
son for that even though he is
considerably beyond military age.
For his son, 19-year old Henry
(Hank) Mark is out there today,
in command of a troop of Fillipino
Scouts. The elder Mark thinks
he could be of help, because he
knows all that ground over which
his son is fighting now. Hank has
not been heard from in the last
couple of weeks, but before the
fall of Manilla, he wired his dad:
“Having a wonderful time. Wish
you were here. Please don’t wor
ry. I feel swell.”
The elder Mark wishes he were
there but, since he can’t be, he
will at least be well represented
for, besides Henry, there are a
couple of other members of the
family in the armed forces.
Leonard, 28, is with a tank bat
talion at Fort Ord, California;
Richard, 20, will graduate from
the University of California as a
reserve officer, and Marvin, 27, is
by this time on his way' down to
the local induction center.

THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY
Our Kim Folks
Beverly Hills B’nai B’rith (the
movie colony’s chapter) held a
gala meeting this week, with the
singing star, Walter Wolfe King,
leading the audience in patriotic
airs. Thomas Mitchell, well-loved
Irish cinemalite, read Lincoln’s
Gettysburg Address. And Emil
Ludwig was the speaker of the
evening.
Among Ludwig’s pithy remarks
was the statement that the assassi
tion of Hitler is a historic neces
sity—if he doesn’t have the good
luck to catch cold before. The
Prussian generals will spell catas
trophic doom for Hitler . . . per
haps within the year . . . But do
not mistake the generals for “good
boys!” And do not expect revolu
tion in Germany! His faith in the
defeat of the Nazis is positive,
but it will come about through
other factors: the democracies sea
power, the blockade, the bombing
of Germany, and revolution in the
conquered countries. Neither Hit
ler nor Mussolini know much a
bout sea power, that indispensable
weapon both F.D.R. and Churchill
understand thoroughly. Bombing
Germany will have effect because
the Germans are nervous by na
ture, cannot take it like the Eng
lish.
Reading our Encyclopedia Brit
annica, Ludwig takes umbrage,
not at the fact that Hitler rates
forty lines while he gets only
thirty-two, but that the item
states: “Hitler is sincere!” Never
in history was there a bigger liar
nor a more perfidious friend.
“Every man, woman, and child
knows that—and even my little
dog;”
As to Doochie, the best he can
forsee for him is suicide—that
would give him “at least one dra
matic moment!”

Movie columnist Irving Hoff
man discovers in the Bible, Book
of Revelations, Chapter 13, the
prophecy of Hitler’s rise and fall.
“His number,” intones the verse,
“is six hundred and three score
and six . . . His power shall con
tinue forty-two months.” Juggling
figures, Hoffman arrives at the
dates—Sept. 1939 to March 1943.

After much pro-and-con discus
sion, the Jack Benny-Carole Lom
bard picture will be released . . .
in about a month. One scene had
to be deleted where Jack and
Carole are about to make an es
cape by air, and Carole remarks,
“What can happen in a plane?”
Strange that for nearly ten years
Ernst Lubitsch wanted to direct
Carole in celluloid, and this is it —
the first and last.

A story is going the rounds con
cerning the optimist and the pessi
mist in Italy. Said the hopeful
one, “You know we’re going to
lose this war.” Answered the sour
one, “Yes, but when?”
