Bernstein Confident of Eventually Summoning Ford.

Samuel Untermyer, counsel for Herman Bernstein, editor of the “Jewish Tribune”, has been informed that Henry Ford will not accept service in Bernstein’s suit for libel against the Detroit manufacturer of auto-cars and anti-Semitism.

“Mr. Ford has refused to come within the state or to designate counsel here on whom the papers might be served or to authorize anyone to appear for him”, Mr. Bernstein asserts.

“However, we shall find some other way of getting at him. Unless Mr. Ford is willing to keep away from New York entirely or to come here in disguise, we shall get him sooner or later.”
