S-"-" as he talked about the necessity of his fellow Jews losing their "thin-skinnedness." His brown-eyes blazed and his blandly, good-natured, tanned round face gleamed with fervor as he cried excitedly that all Am- ericans- especially Jews--should realize that this nation, with all its faults, is the best place in the world to live in "Listen," he said, "If you tell the Nazis who yell how good Hitler would be here, the Com- munists who holler about Russia and the Fascists who praise Italy that they could go to those coun- tries to live, and you'd pay their boat passage, not one of them would stir. It's a racket. This country is the best place in the world--the freest. "It's not perfect. I know it's plenty tough for Jews. Say, I'm getting good money because I'm at the top and they can use me. But suppose I'm plain Benny Kubelsky who'd like to be door- man at Radio City. A Jew can't get that job. "But, still, we Jews have more in America than we ever had in any country in the world. And we don't want to forget that." The greying-haired, 44-year-old comic, who gets $100,000 a picture FiI. tot b/nO/tg Jack Benny --he hangs by his legs in his latest picture, just completed-- thinks Jewish humor "is much funnier than most. It has a twist, it,s typical comedy, based on a Jewish expression--not just on a gag." Why does he use a Jewish char- acter, Shlepperman, on the radio program that for the past four years has won him the acclaim by America's radio editors as Corn- edian No. 1 on the air? "He's a touching, sympathetic character," Comedian Benny ex- plained, haltingly. "I like him. I think most people do, don't you? Of course, these are terribly trying times. Our people are es- pecially on edge. So we've used Shlepperman less than usual. I haven't signed him yet for next fall.

MARCO SADIS, wife of a cobbler, as she cuddles her baby son, who will be named Samuel Sadis, after another son who died a victim of an auto accident on the same day that his mother, in the same hospital, was giving birth to his baby sister. That was seven years ago. And since then, Mrs. Sadis has been praying for a son--to take the place of her first-born son. The first son in a Sephardic family belongs to the father, who names it after his father. And that is the name Baby Sam carries. LUCY looks at him. She was born the day the first Sammy died.

Ford Accepts Nazi Medal DETROIT (WNS)--Detroit Jew- ish Chronicle, in its current issue, ap- peals to lIenry Ford to intercede personally in putting a stop to tile circulation of the Protocols of the Ehlers of Zion. Utilizing the occasion of Ford's 751h l)irthday, The Chronicle said: "We are in 1)osition to supply Mr. Ford with a list of organizations and individuals who are using ills name und quotations frmn his writings as I)'U't of timir dastardly work. A word from Mr. Ford will help to put a stop to this horrible business. "We ask him at this tinm to take 'L hand personally in (his matter and to coml)lete the task he began in 1937, ill his statement to the late Louis Marshall, ef discrediting the malicious libels c(mtained ill the l)rotocols."

JERUSALEM. -- Newspapers (h, not t)aint life as it is! They give a dis- torted view, as they 11% on unusual and excel)tion'd as- pects; it is left to the imagination of the reader to fill in the normal back- ground. But re'my people are mml)le to do so in the case of coun(ries of which they have no personal knowl- edge. In their mind's eye they see Pales- line, for instance, not as it really is, but as the ncwsl)apers del)ict it. Now, since the papers have I)een full of violence and rol)bery in Pales- tinc for more than two ye'rs, you are under the imi)ression th'Lt life here consists of nothing but violence and robbery. As a result you overwhehn your friends here with anxious inquiries. And business hums at the l'ost ()ffice.

He named his first-born son, Yehudi--"the Jew," in Hebrew. On their wedding day, Mr. and Mrs. Menuhin promised each other to use no other language but Hebrew in their home for the rest of their lives.
