YMHA To Have New Home
The Board of Directors of the
“Y” announced that they have
leased the building next door to
the Jewish Center to be used as
the “temporary” YMHA home.

of any other organization.

will get underway on March 20th.
The plans call for a small gym
complete with athletic equipment, !

combatting anti-Semitism, and in
building up a great democracy...
But what some people fail to re
alize is that the combative work
that the A. D. L. carries on can
not be flung open to membership
discussion without hampering the
effectiveness of the work . . . On
the receiving end of a great deal
of B’nai B’rith publicity it can be
said that there is no other Jewish
organization which does such ex
cellent public relations work . . .
It was good to see some of our
out of town friends . . . They al
most equaled the attendance of
the Jacksonville people . . . Why
do Jacksonville folk always have
to be so shamed at these regional
gatherings (of any kind) ? . . •
Although William Boxeram did
say that our A. D. L. committee
was doing more than any other in
the state . . . There probably
wasn’t anyone there who went,
away convinced that anti-Semitic
activities aren’t still a serious
danger . . . and that the danger
will rise at the end of this war...

Haunting melodies which bring
back memories: “My Little Cous
in” which we first heard as “De
Greene Cousine” in Yiddish . . .
You can chalk that down as an
other Jewish contribution to the
American scene . . .

terested may contact Mrs. Ben

Someone suggested that they
might begin scrap saving in the
U. S. Army . . . “Imagine,” this
person writes from a military
post, “all the old razor blades that
are used here and thrown away.
I think the collection of old razor
blades should begin in the Army
camps, don’t you ? Imagine the
collection that could be made
throughout the country . . . and
Ireland!” ... A worthy sugges
tion at that . . .

On the occasion of Brotherhood
week I want to take this oppor

defeating Hitler, we are not only
protecting our democracy and our
faith,, but that we are building
for a better and more tolerant
world . . . “Defeat Intolerance.”
