Amateurs Rated By Vallee On First Program
Paul Whiteman To Hear Others at Beach

More than 5,000 persons heard the amateurs, who had qualified at preliminary auditions conducted by Bennie Krueger, leader of the orchestra which inaugurated tea dancing at Oriental.
Rudy rated the entertainers and gave them constructive criticism, advising them to develop their own technique. Imitators never achieve real fame in the theatrical world, he pointed out to the young would-be Bing Crosbys, Rudy Vallees, Kate Smiths and Lawrence Tibbets.
His highest ranking, A minus, went to six of the amateurs, four of them boys and two girls.
Amateurs desiring to appear with Paul Whiteman, singers, dancers, and musicians, may register at the Press Booth, diagonally opposite the Manhattan bandstand.

Army Show Hailed As A Direct Hit On Opening Night
By F. D. McGUIRE
"The Army Show," Canada's allsoldier musical extravaganza, opened in Saint John last night and exploded a bevy of mirth, melody and beautiful girls like a Mills grenade un the stage of the Capitol Theatre. Attended by a capacity audience of servicemen and women and a few invited civilian guests, the entertainment was lively from start to finish. It is big-time, and in fact has been labeled "better than anything Broadway has to offer this season."
Bright, Snappy, Sparkling
It was bright, snappy, sparkling and naughty-but clean-musical comedy, and was the finest stage show to come this way in many years.
Some thought it better than "Dumbells" of the First Great War, but then the girls helped to do that. It is gay and amusing and certainly accomplishes that for which it was created- entertain the soldier.
Its music, its singing and its dancing choruses left nothing to be desired. It was a well-paced musical revue with never a dull moment. Its scenic and lighting effects were striking.
Its ballet numbers were executed with rhythm and grace. Its choruses were peppy and clicked with the slightest move of the conductor's h baton. R.S. Frank Fusco was excellent as concert master and musical conductor. Its comedians, while good, could stand a little polish and rounding-off in some numbers, That was about the only weakness.
Starting off with "That's an Order From the Army" until its finale, "Let’s Make a Job of It" the whole program was greeted with hearty laughter and spontaneous applause.
Mildred Steals Show
Corporal Doug Romaine and Private Lou Herman, replacing Sergeatn Frank Shuster and Sergeant Johnny Wayne; who played with the show earlier in its itinerary in Canada, carried much of the main "acting" as the comedians, while Sergeant Mildred Morey sang, danced and did imitations with a raucous gusto. In her Gracie Field number she stole the show, and it is doubtful if Miss SI Fields could have done a 'better job herself.
Also remembered: The ballet

Connie Vernon ... The excellence
of the precision dancing ... the singing of 'The Four Brass Hats" ...

One of the strong points of the Army Show
is that it is as all-Canadian as it is all-army. What comes out of the
whole thing is something that is peculiarly Canadian in character and
atmosphere. And it is fast, but not too fast, and thus is goes merrily on
This afternoon the show will be repeated for members of the armed forces and tonight it will be presented for the general public:

Halifax Mail - August 31, 1943
SHOW OPENS HERE
Sparkling with bright comedy, compelling music, lovely costumes and fine, talent The Army Show opened last, evening at the Forum to an 'all-service audience that expressed its approval without reservation,
The show, which will be presented to civilians this evening and Wednesday evening, was preceded to Halifax by weeks of lavish publicity, all as last night's performance effectively proved, well deserved.
Easily one of the best entertainments this city has seen in many years, The Army Show has so much to offer that it is difficult for the average spectator to take it all in just one evening,
It starts off with plenty of animation and never lets down for a single instant. Members of the cast are so clever and so well directed and rehearsed that there isn't an awkward moment, a sour note nor an ungraceful movement to mar the smoothness of it. Moreover everyone seems to enjoy the work so thoroughly that the audience immediately is infected with a matching gaiety.
"That's an order from the army" the song with which the entire company opens the program, sets the fast and exciting pace that is maintained through more than two hours of appealing songs, beautiful dancing and hilarious comedy.
The stars of the show Frank Shuster, Johnny Wayne* and Mildred Morey, who made such a tremendous hit elsewhere in Canada, do not appear in the local presentation but their substitutes, Doug Romaine, Lou Herman and Virginia Stansell are good enough to please the most exacting critic.
Among the many highlights are a remarkably accurate imitation of George Bernard Shaw by Captain Bill Harding, a dream sequence danced by the C.W.A.C. Ensemble, a sidesplitting recruiting skit and a South American interlude, elaborately costumed.
Most of the songs and dialogue poke good-natured fun at army routine, and regulations but there is a serious undercurrent that is emphasized in the finale when the troupe sings inspirational songs of the last war and takes a pledge to make a real job of it this time.
The ballet number is one that goes over well with everyone. Effectively staged to Chopin's music it moves along at an artistic pace for just long enough to be enjoyable then ends in a farcical finish that is as amusing as it is unexpected. An army fashion parade, that takes in everything from battle dress to underwear, provides many laughs and a bit of friendly rivalry between Army, Navy and Air Force gives spectators the opportunity to root for their favorite service.
The orchestra alone is well worth the price of admission, for the musicians, under skilled direction, know exactly what they are doing and how to do it most creditably.
Private Frances Dugan, who belongs to Halifax, and consequently is of special interest to local residents, does a solo tap dance and also takes part in the chorus numbers. All the dance routines are excellently performed and are of satisfying variety.
Throughout the show there is such a wealth of ability on display and such a perfect demonstration of good timing and team work that it is hard to believe the majority of the entertainers are amateurs.
The Army Show's visit to Halifax will be remembered for a long time. It's the kind of entertainment for which Broadway theatre-goers standing in line for ours and pay three times as much. M. H.

ITALY - 1944
BY THE MINYAN
CANTOR LOUIS HERMAN was a young Jew who lived in Canada during World War II. After hearing about the terrible things that were happening to the Jews in Europe, he decided to enlist in the army to fight against the Germans.
When he finished his training, young Louis was transferred to Italy. As a sergeant in the army, he was assigned to the front, in the midst of heavy fighting.
Throughout the difficult months of the war, Louis kept as many mitzvos as he possibly could. On the day of his mother's Yahrzeit, despite being many miles away from any shul, Louis wanted to say Kaddish for her. This prayer, however, would require a minyan, and finding ten Jews in the middle of a battlefield in Italy was not going to be easy. Louis knew of only five other Jewish soldiers in his unit.
Louis approached the army chaplain, who was a priest, and explained his predicament. Louis asked the chaplain if he knew of any other Jewish soldiers in the area. To Louis's surprise, the chaplain not only knew where he could find other Jewish soldiers, but he also understood the meaning of a minyan.
"See that area over there?" The chaplain pointed to a tall observation tower. "That is where our soldiers guard our unit and watch for advancing German soldiers. When they see any activity, they radio the information back to the artillery unit to help us aim our bombs more precisely. There are four Jews who occupy positions in the observation tower. If you'd like, I can put in a call to them and ask that they come over to our area for your minyan."
Louis was overjoyed. He would have exactly the ten men required to make up a minyan. And to his great relief, the soldiers were happy to oblige. Louis was able to say Kaddish on his mother's Yahrzeit with a minyan. After they finished davening, Louis thanked everyone for joining him and enabling him to fulfill this meaningful personal obligation.
As the four soldiers turned to walk back to the observation tower, they suddenly heard a loud explosion and saw a most startling sight. The entire tower and its contents had been blown up. Only the four Jewish soldiers, who had just "happened" to be busy doing a very important mitzvah, had escaped annihilation.
The Talmud tells us (Pesachim 8b) that "Shluchei mitzvah einan nizokin," messengers who go to do a mitzvah are saved from harm. Not only do acts of chessed help others, but those very acts can also save us from harm.
told by Rabbi Boruch Brul in his book
New York Times - March 1, 1945
SPOKE IN HEBREW
Bestowed Blessing On Jewish Soldiers Visiting Vatican
TORONTO (NANA)- A member of the Canadian Army show, Pvt. Lou Herman, who has arrived home after service overseas, described how Pope Pius XII, speaking in Hebrew, blessed a group of Canadian Jewish soldiers during an audience in Rome.
The Jewish soldiers were singled out by the Pontiff when they found themselves standing in a room full of kneeling soldiers.
Describing the unusual scene; Private Herman said that the room was jammed with hundreds of soldiers who knelt when the pope entered.
"We didn't know what to do so we remained standing," he said. "The Pope beckoned to us and as we approached he asked: 'What I, your faith, my sons?' Then he spoke to us in Hebrew.
"After conversing with us in Hebrew, which he spoke fluently, he raised his arms in the manner of the priests of the Hebrew faith and gave us his benediction in Hebrew," added Herman, noting that the event was "awe-inspiring".
April 1945 - Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp
My dad visited Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp after its liberation in April of 1945. He took this picture of a sign put up by the British Army. The electrified fence can be seen at the far left.
The sign, roughly translated says:
"This is the world famous Concentration Camp Bergen-Belsen, liberated by the British Army April 15, 1945.
10,000 Corpses were found; 13,000 more about to die, all due to the new German world order in Europe as demonstrated by the Nazi Culture."

Ottawa - 1946
4,000 in Ottawa Enjoy Army Show
Nearly 4,000 soldiers and their civilian friends stamped their feet, clapped their hands, whistled, and cheered “B Unit" of the Canadian Army Shows which played at the Coliseum last night.
Overseas for 14 months, this show played the whole Central Mediterranean theatre of war and England. The girls in the show included the first C.W.A.C. to land in Italy. On its way to Toronto to form a new show, the troupe gave their audience a taste of what men in action get to take their minds off the war.
The quality of the performance made this "taste" a very pleasant one. Versatile Lance Corporal Jimmy More, of Montreal, kept the show going at a merry pace with his jokes, imitations and a monologue "With the Hairforce at Camp Borden". "Relax, girls, relax", he called following Private Gwyn Price's vocal renditions of 'Oh, What a Beautiful Morning", and "My Buddy". Private Price is from Calgary.
Private Sunny Wilson, C.W.A.C., of Moncton, sang several, blues numbers, and Private Mary Moynihan, C.W.A.C., of, Regina, offered pleasing soprano vocals. The dance team of Sergeant Eve Staples, of Toronto, and Private Alfreda Phillips of Winnipeg, were a distinct hit. An acrobat with a body she could twist like a corkscrew, and keeping the audience on the edge of their seats, Private Ethel Hendry of Windsor, performed on top of a table! Private Lou Herman, of Toronto, provided laughs in the show, wearing an oversize greatcoat, a tin helmet and floppy shoes.
Special laurels go to the band, led by Sgt. Morris Weinsweig; of Toronto. The members are nearly all from Ontario and they seemed to enjoy playing almost as much as their audience enjoyed listening. At one point, Corporal More called for three volunteers, a. member of the C.W.A.C. and two soldiers; to lead the band.
'The band followed carefully the movements of the amateur leader's baton, but in doing so worked themselves into a slap-happy condition- the cellist playing his cello like a guitar, and the brass section playing off-key and out of tempo.
The show is traveling under the command of Captain Bruce Wood, of Winnipeg.

Herman, Well Known Tenor Entertains Rotarians
Lou Herman, well-known tenor, of Toronto, entertained delightfully at the regular Rotary luncheon on Wednesday last. His well controlled tenor voice revealed volume and excellent schooling. Accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Evans, Mr. Herman was rewarded with enthusiastic applause from the delighted audience.
Lou Herman was born in Montreal, son of a cantor, and showed early signs of musical talent. As a boy soprano prodigy, he sang as featured soloist in large theatres and concert halls throughout Canada and the United States.
Critics acclaimed him the best boy soprano on the continent and predicted a great musical future. On various occasions he sang as guest artist with Rudy Vallee, Paul Whiteman and on featured radio programs of American and Canadian networks. Prior to the outbreak of the war, Mr. Herman was touring Eastern Canada and the United States, giving song recitals. He enlisted in the Infantry and served with the Canadian Army overseas, during I which time he also entertained the troops in England, France, Italy, Holland, Belgium and Germany.
At present Mr. Herman is studying music at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, and will enter into his third year this fall.
|Having grown up in the cantorial tradition, after the war Louis Herman left show business and became a Cantor|
cantorial history of the young Canadian Jewish community already has to
its credit a colourful and distinctive record. If the quarter million
Jewish community in Canada is small in numbers in contrast to the
community of the United States, in quality, however, the general Jewish
level of culture in this country including cantorial music has nothing
to be ashamed of in comparison with the much larger community next door.
In certain details Jewish Canada has even shown itself to be a model.
The very fact that the development of the Canadian Jewish community came
much later than in the United States was responsible to a great extent
for a slowing-up of the rapid tempo of the assimilation process of
the American melting pot and to a certain extent preserved the
Jewish spiritual heritage and the noble traditions bought over from
Eastern Europe, a land where culture, music and Torah went together.
to this the status of Hazzanuth was higher and on a better level in
Canada even in the bottom years of economic crisis when the cantorial
field in America was dominated by despair and chaos. It is no surprise
at all that very often outstanding American cantors were lured into
leaving; their positions in the U.S.A. to take cantorial posts in
Canada. In fact an important number of prominent hazzanim from Europe
found a new place of refuge in this country when their old posts were
ruined and wiped out after the war years. Canada was also a favorite
spot for cantorial attractions. Almost all of the world-famous cantors
came on tour here and were so successful with concerts, both secular and
devotional, that they won many admirers.
general Hazzanuth has recently reached
a high point here. The historical development of Jewish life has led to
the fact that an important number of our estranged youth should take a
positive look at their people - a development which is certainly a great
gain for the survival of our people. New hopes have finally begun to
beam out on the Jewish horizon, hopes which have brought radical change
for the better for the cantors of our people. The synagogue - the sacred
place - has become the centre of Jewish life and again has received the
crown of its sacred importance.
cantorial art has struck deep roots in· this soil can be seen by the.
fact that even decades ago our Jewish community was able to produce its
own cantors who assumed rather important positions in
the general professional world on the American continent.
most popular of them was the late Yossele Shlisky
who achieved recognition among the famous artists of his generation.
that time there were also prominent the Toronto young cantors Abraham
Selsky, Abraham Singer and others, In recent years the profession has
become enriched by a number of young and gifted cantors - particularly
in Toronto, such as Henoch Borenstein (now in California), Jacob Barkin
(now in Washington), Samuel Stolnitz (who has served in Vancouver and
Minneapolis and is now back in Toronto), Nathan Katzman (the present
head of the California region of the American Cantors' Assembly,
Louis Herman (now in New York) and many other young artists who serve in
various prominent congregations throughout the U.S. and Canada.
do not want to overlook the fact that in this present treatment I am
giving special emphasis to the Dominion's second largest community -
Toronto - which is celebrating its hundredth year of organized communal
life and where
have spent most of my years in this country. As it happens the fact that
I was a founder of Toronto's Cantors Association 25 years ago gives me a
special equipment and familiarity with the details of Toronto's
first hazzan it hundred
years ago at the first organization of 17 Jewish families was the Rev.
Chaim Goldberg of New York who served the tiny community as rabbi and
schochet as well.
the growth and development of the community the whole profession in
later years began to take on a different appearance. The position of hazzan
began to become stabilized, he acquired more prestige and more
economic security, so that he was able to devote himself fully to his
profession and not be subjected to the role of a kol-boi
- a general
religious factotum, -
forced to serve the community in all its needs in order to help earn a
livelihood for himself.
of the first recognized hazzanim
in Toronto about fifty years ago who was responsible for hazzanuth
being recognized as among the most effective spiritual
factors in the religious life of our community were M.
Shulman and the late Rev. M. Kaplan3
Poland, he came to Toronto at the age of eleven in 1907, with Cantor
Moshe Wolman. Later Shlisky studied at the Toronto Conservatory where he
graduated as a Mus. Bach. Died after a long illness in New York at 59 in
His first post was the Goel Tzedev Synagogue in Toronto. Later he moved to Atlanta and later to Baltimore where he served until his death in 1931.
A short biography of Hazzan Kaplan was published in the Jubilee Book of the Beth Hamidrash Hagadol Chevra Tehillim (McCaul Street Synagogue), edited by S. Troub in 1937. Rev. M. Kaplan came to Toronto in 1907 and immediately became cantor of this synagogue. He later entered private business.

THE CANTORS ASSEMBLY OF AMERICA
A CONCERT OF TRADITIONAL MUSIC FOR THE SYNAGOGUE
Wednesday Evening, April Nineteenth, 1961 at l0 o'clock
Liberty, New York
THIS IS THE SECOND in a series of Two Concerts of Music for the Synagogue. It is dedicated to that Golden Age of Synagogue composition and Hazzanic virtuosity which flourished in Eastern Europe between the mid-nineteenth century and the First World War.
Written for the Jew who was thoroughly at home in the synagogue and passionately loved its music it beautifully mirrors the intensity and devotion of Jewish life of that era.
Hazzanim, in particular, will ever be indebted to these Masters; under their impetus and inspiration Hazzanut flowered to full bloom. Even after their own glorious voices were stilled they continue to live in the works and memories they contributed to the ancient hazzanic art and tradition ..
Included in this Concert are the works of some of those who, living in the New World, created in the spirit of the Old.
The participants are the hazzanim of the Choral Ensemble of the Philadelphia Regional Branch of the Cantors Assembly of America, Mr. Sholom Altman, Conductor, Mr. Lazar Weiner, Piano.
