SHMUEL GLUZ (d. October 1939)
            He was born in Rovno, Poland.  He was active there in the “Judenstaat Partei” (Jewish state party).  In 1935 he emigrated to Israel.  Initially he worked for the daily newspaper Doar hayom (Today’s mail), later being employed in various lines of work.  From 1935 until September 1939, he was the Israel correspondent for Unzer ekspres (Our express) in Warsaw.  His last correspondence piece—concerning the anti-Jewish Arab unrest—was published in the final issue of the newspaper, at the time of the German invasion of Poland in September 1939.  He contributed to Peysekh-blat (Passover newspaper) in Warsaw (1939), in which he published a story and reportage on life in Israel.  Over the years 1937-1939, he worked for the Tel Aviv division of the Palestine Post.  He drowned in the Kineret in the first days of October 1939.
