For six generations of the Oysher family a male descendant has been a cantor. The seventh son hack was a rabbi. It seems a far cry from that ancestor to Moishe of the movies . . . from Lfpkon, Bessarabia, to Celluloid City . . . but the change k merely environmental, not spiritual. The journey was inevitable. In Moishe's veins there flows the gift of song. And something else is there also perhaps the compressed yearnings of a long-forgotten forbear a passion for that realm of make-believe, the theatre. And strange it is that these two facets of his life led him, after years of devious paths, to Hollywood . . . land of film fantasy! An odd field in which to sow the flower of Jewish culture. Yet when yoa talk to him, it makes sense-very sound sense. But we're ahead of our story. . . . A young man of thirty-three is Moishe . . . square-shouldered . . . dark-haired . . . with a sensitive face . . . . and an emotional voice. As he speaks, his love for his people and his reverence for all that is Jewish are movingly sincere. Back in that little Rumanian village of Lipkon, his life was the humdrum of many another Jewish boy. He studied Heb.-ew, Bible, history, traditional music. His teacher was the great Jewish poet and fabulist, Eleazar Steinberg. And on "shab-bas" he would sing with his father in the synagogue. It was only when a troupe of traveling actors came to town that life became exciting. The tinsel and bedraggled trappings of the tent shows fascinated the boy. Moishe "was given parts whenever they needed a child actor. At the age of six, steeped in an imaginative world, he began his stage career much to the disapproval of his father. No actors had ever before gnarled the family tree. So Moishe grew up his soul in the schul, and his heart in the theatre they were two inseparable, unbreakable fibers of his consciousness. When he was thirteen, his family emigrated to Canada, where his father had a contract as cantor of the largest synagogue in Montreal. From there the Ovshers moved to New York where Moishe became absorbed in the Yiddish theatre. He ha played, produced, and directed for every Jewish theatre in New York. Became a Cantor One time, however, on returning from a trip to South America, he found the shows in New York had oil Kocn t thr wasn't a Tiart the pro-Nazi rabble-rouser Joe Mc-Willams, is backfiring on the merchants who are Iitd there. A survey has disclosed that the consumers in nrkville district, where this directory ii mostly distributed, were boycotting the merchants listed in this "Buy" Guide . . . Synagogues in Canada are row urging their members to buy war saving certificates and donate them to the temples ... In this way ith the trvern ment and the cause of Jewuh religion will benefit. Seventy member of the Betar organization in Sooth Africa have jo'jied us volunteers in the South African army. Dr. Isaac Herzog, chivf rabbi of Palestine, who is now on a in this country, is recuperating from a serious but successful operation which he underwent here.

He boarded a freighter Iat week which will bring him to the European front. History Repeated: Those in America who are pessimistic about Europe and its future should read the book, "Adol-phe Cremieux" just published by the Jewish Publication society of America . . . They will see how history repeats itself . . . They will read how the French armies had surrendered, how half of France was under the heel of the German invader, how Paris fell into the hands of the enemy, how the free part of France remained leader-less and how the French government had to establish its new capita! in southern France . . . All this happened not in 1940 but in 1870 ... In this terrible time of invasion and disor Edward G. Robinson A tender and highly unusual love story is woven through the powerful action, with Ida Luptno and John Garfield as the sweethearts. Robinson, of course, portrays Larsen. Alexander Knox, a very promising screen newcomer, plays the role of the young author, and Barry Fitzgerald, one of the screen's most brilliant character actors, plays "Cookie," a sniveling, slimy coward who fawning-ly reports to Larsen everything that goes on among the other members of the crew. Also shown is Guy Kibbee as Clarence Budington Kellami'a famous character, "Seatiergood Baines." rn mm 1 BUM B'RITH COUNCIL WILL MEET SUNDAY (Coattlawol from race 1) A - a SERVICE HEALTH CLUB NOW OPEN TO PUBLIC The Service Health Club, Inc., a popular priced health club, has opened its establishment at 2124 W.
