THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKL'
BETWEEN YOU
AND ME
BY BORIS SMOLAR
(Copyright, 1948, Jewish Tele-
THE PALESTINE ISSUE:
It is no longer any secret . . .
The Jews in Palestine have heavier
weapons than anyone suspects . . .
And they may have at their dis
posal small naval units to protect
immigration and munitions ships.
. . . Such ships will be reaching
the shores of the Jewish State on
the day following the British sur
render of the Mandate . . . There
will be no fear of their being in
tercepted by the British Navy
since Britain will no longer be the
“boss” in Palestine’s waters . . .
Incidentally, it is a mistake to
think that the Jews in Palestine
depend on American-made arms ...
The lifting by the United States of
its arms embargo for the Jewish
fighters would, naturally, help to
no small extent in securing more
weapons . . . But its primary ef
fect would be to help the Haganah
get arms in certain European and
Latin American countries at priies
much lower than are quoted at
present . . . These countries are
now charging exhorbitant prices
when selling monitions to the Jews
in Palestine, only because thej
know that the Haganah cannot
buy arms in the United States . . .
There is a good deal of embarrass
ment in Washington official circle:
over the results of a study now
completed by the Foreign Policj
Association . . . The study estab
lishes that the picture presentee
to the American public on the
danger of losing the next war i:
the U. S. does not get oil from the
Middle East was definitely exag
gerated . . . The direct strategie
value to America of Middle East
ern oil has been “decidedly over
stressed,” the study shows ... Dr
Bernard Brodie, professor of Inter
national Relations at Yale Univer
sity and author of several book
on sea-power, naval strategy an
defense problems, directed th
study ... He asserts that the firs
fundamental goal of strategic o
policy for the United States mus
be the possession “within our ow
territory or close to it” of a va:
fund of readily available oil . .
To this end, he urges the encoui
agement through government sul
sidies or further exploration f(
oil within the U. S. also th
development of a synthetic oil ii
dustry . . .
* * * *
PRECIOUS DUST:
A new novel on intermarriai
has now made its appearance
this country ... It is Rita Kissin
“This Precious Dust,” published t
Ziff-Davis . . . The book is diffe
ent from any other books dealir
with the same subject for a nur
her of reasons . . . The centr
figure, Julie Maast, is the daught
of a rabbi, brought up in a sm:
town in Germany, in synagogi
environments . . . She intermarri
not once but twice . . . Her fir
husband is a German diplom.
who later turns out to be a Na
and divorces her, retaining custo<
of their son . . . Her second hu
band is an American, a really der
ocratic man, who deeply reser,
racial bigotry . . . However, t
remarkable thing about this v,
man, who was cast aside by \
father for leaving the fold of Je
ry, is that deep in her heart sh<
happiest in the homes of her J<
ish neighbors, whether in Ber
London or Florida . . . And
gets emotionally absorbed ir
Jewish refugee child rescued fi
the Nazis in Poland and brou
to the United States by a r:
organization . . . She loves
American rton-Jewish husband,
because he does not underst
her Jewish sentiments she f
closer to the child than to him
