“The Oldest and Most Widely Circulated Jewish Publication
in this Territory”
Herman Shulman, a relative newcomer to the ranks of Jew-'
ish leadership, managed in a brief few years to make, his mark in
Jewish activities, through the American Jewish Conference, the
American Zionist Emergency Council and the Zionist Emergency
Council and the Zionist Organization of America. He gave his all
and best in the brief span of his work for the cause of our people.
American Jewry is not over-rich in human resources. Herman Shul
man’s death is a definite loss.
Hoiv Many Dagos Is A Bilbo Worth?
Senator Bilbo, the little man who is a gallonful of hate, has out
done himself recently in his salutation “my dear dago” to an Ameri
can girl of Italian descent who wrote to protest his maneuvers to
block FEPC legislation.
The girl in this instance had three brothers. One was killed
in action; one was wounded, and the third, too, has seen a great
deal of combat.
Thousands of dagos are covering themselves with glory. So
are kikes and coons the hateist’s appellation for Jews and
Our combat men of these groups can hardly take offense at
Bilbo’s bellowing and Rankin’s rantings, for what is a Bilbo worth
to America as compared to a single fighting Dago or Kike, and
what is a Rankin worth to America against a single fighting coon?
Every so often Hollywood is used to smear American Jewry.
Not that the movie industry is any more or less reprehensible than
other industries, which all have their pluses and minuses, nor that
the Jews really dominate the industry to the extent alleged by the
anti-Semites and their allies.
Representative Rankin, the Mississippi champion of rancor and
hate, is soon to start another Hollywood witchhunt. This is not
the first, nor last time that Rankin has done this. Hollywood can
well defend its reputation, and the harm that may come to Jews
from the temporary publicity given Rankin’s anticipated smear we
can well take in our stride. But what does deserve comment is
the fact that the Jews active in Hollywood whose envy-arousing
glitter is too often the cause of smears against Jews, have so little
Jew-consciousness and evade, by miles, anything that might draw
attention to their Jewishness.
Hollywood has yet to produce a picture like the British movie,
Mr. Emmanuel, or a film depicting Jewish martyrdom and heroism
under the Germans which is certainly unparalleled dramatic ma
terial. Even in releasing Rhapsody in Blue, the George Gershwin
film, Warner Brothers so obviously underplayed Gershwin’s Jew
ishness, that the movie critic of the New Republic deemed this fact
worthy of comment. Were it not that smears of Hollywood develop
so frequently into smears against Jews; these Hollywood semi
morannos would hardly deserve our sympathy when the Rankins
gallop down on them.

LETTER BOX |
On July 1 the Jacksonville
Jewish Center awarded one of
its teachers, Miss Gertrude
Meyerhoff, with a scholar
ship to attend Camp Masad, a
Hebrew speaking camp, in
New York. In the following
letter to the editor Miss Mey
erhoff describes Masad and
the life which is led there.
Masad is situated on a hill and
is surrounded by two tremend
ous mountains. The Camp is di
vided into two parts. The girls
are called Gallid or Gallilee . .
the boys in the valley are known
as the Emek.
Twice a week we have dis
cussions and once a week and
on Saturday we go for a walk in
the mountains. We sing all day,
no matter what we do, especially
before and after meals. I have
several new songs to teach. They
have a Hebrew version for lots
of the English songs. I know how
to sing “Pop Goes the Weasel”
and “Joshua Fought the Battle of
Jericho” in Hebrew. The chil
dren at home will love it. There
are dances with each song, too.
Os course, all the activities are
carried on in Hebrew. That is all
you hear. I heard a bunch of
young people speaking Hebrew on
the ferry from New York to New
Jersey and right away I knew
they were going to Masad.
I can understand almost every
thing that is said, and am learn
ing to speak fairly well. You
pick up words here or there and
all you have to do is put it to
gether. It is just natural for me
to speak Hebrew, because every
one else does, too. Most of the
people here have been to ‘Pales

tine at one time or another, and
naturally they speak well.
To me the whole thing is like
a dream. Here I know that it
is a wonderful thing to be Jew
ish, and I become more proud
of it every day. The atmosphere
is Jewish and you hear nothing
else all day. Yes, even the car
penters speak Hebrew. It is lots

one was dressed in white. All the

and you can hear the echo of the
songs coming from the other side
of the mountain. Some of the

they are very beautiful. ,
