Hungarian Anti-semitic Petition to Senate Not Distributed

The Hungarian petition, submitted to the Senate by Senator LaFollette, recently, is not being distributed any more, since its anti-Semitic contents have become known.

This statement is made in a letter by the Senator’s son, Robert M. LaFollette, Jr. It seems that the Senator submitted the memorandum in a hurry, without reading it, The Senator did not ask that the petition be included in the record, because it was so long, but having been informed that it was an extremely important paper, he asked that a special Senate document be made of it.
