World Jewry
Begins Holiday
Jews throughout the world will in-
augurate the celebration of the Pass-
over with traditional "Seder" ser-
vices tomorrow evening.{
Hebrew Independence Day1
Passover is the Hebrew Indepen-
dence Day. Frequently called the Fes-
tival of Freedom, it is the commem-
orization of the exodus under the
leadership of Moses of the Hebrew
tribes from Egypt.
The "Seder"-which means "or-
der"-is a ceremonial service and
meal featuring special dishes which
symbolize the hardships which the
Israelites endured during their slav-
ery in Egypt. The "Haggadah Shel
Posah," which relates the history of
the exodussand the classical rabbin-
ical discussions about the holiday, is
read during the "Seder."
Unleavened Bread Eaten
During the eight days of the holi-
day, Jews who fully observe the tradi-
tional rituals will eat only unleavened
bread-"Matzos." This tradition arose
from the biblical story that in the
haste of the flight from Egypt the
dough which the Israelites baked had
not been given time to rise. The pro-
duct was a flat, cracker-like bread.
Passover is a joyous holiday. Cus-
toms of non-religious significance
have grown up in connection with
the celebration. One of the favorite
"Seder" customs is "stealing" the
"Affikomen"-the half-sheet of
"Matzos" which is saved for dessert,
and without which the service cannot
be completed.

P. Reuther headed tonight toward a
test of strength as president of his

With other members of the big
UAW-CIO'S 22-man international

Discussing the obstacles to open-

"even on the afternoon of the open-

still nailing in the ceiling of the
game room, a room which only two
days before was still out-of-doors.
It was necessary at the last mo-

cause the Jap workers stood on
them while installing electric wires.

The opening of the Red Teakettle

Opening night, Miss Barbour says,

Counsel for Robert Ringling, 48,
deposed as president of the corpora-
tion at a stockholders' meeting this
week, said today he was preparing
a petition in which the courts will be
asked to declare invalid the meeting
which placed in the presidency James
A. Haley, 47.
Haley is the first head of Ringling

bined shows not descended directly
from the founding Ringlings.
Ringling's attorney contended the
election was invalid because he said
Haley had agreed to a 60-day post-

Ringling's attorney countered with
an assertion Friday that "we are in
control of the cooperation" and said
"Bob will certainly continue his direc-

But last night Haley's lawyer told
the former president, "Bob, you're
not to give any more orders," and
Ringling thereupon left the big Madi-
son Square Garden arena where the
circus started its 1946 season April 4.

MARQUETTE, Mich., April 13 -
It's almost the middle of April and
no one hereabouts has sighted an
iron ore vessel this spring. Further,
there has been no report, official or
otherwise, of the date when the first
carrier can be expected.
It's all a result of the prolonged
iron mine strike on the Marquette
range, which not only has made
3,000 men idle for more than two
months but has prevented any ore
being dumped into the hundreds of
bins of the two giant ore-loading
docks in this port.
Usually, ice conditions at the Soo
Locks determine the opening date of
Marquette's navigation season, but
apparently there will be no large
steamers entering the harbor until
the mine strike is settled. The first
boat arrived here on April 6 last
The usual towering ore stockpiles
near the mines in Marquette coun-
ty are missing, another result of
the strike called Feb. 8 by the
United Steelworkers of America
(CIO). Little ore was hauled to
the surface in the short-lived back
to work movement initiated by op-
erators last month.
At that time the operators offered
a pay boost of 10 cents an hour. The
strikers have demanded 1812 cents.
County mine inspector Clifford J.
Ayotte's annual report, covering 1945,
throws interesting figures on the
The report showed 2,879 men were
employed in surface and under-
ground operations at 13 underground
and three open pit mines on the Mar-
quette range-a total of 820,366 man-
shifts of eight hours.

"What Is Right with the Church" is
the subject chosen by Rev. James P.
Van Pernis for April 28.

working year thus means that
more than a million hours of la-
bor has been lost. The wage loss
probably exceeds $1,000,000.
The competitive position of Mar-
quette county's undeground mines
as against Minnesota's open pits
has been emphasized by operators,
but the strikers insist their wage
demand is not excessive.
