Download PDF for this date

M. E. Greenbaum, Jewish banker of Chicago was recommended to President Coolidge as desirable for appointment to the Cabinet. The recommendation was made by Congressmen Joseph Feuchtwanger and Sproul, representatives of “mid-Western Republicans”, who called on President Coolidge today asking that a Chicago man be appointed to a post in the Cabinet.

Greenbaum is supported by a considerable number of middle West bankers and merchants.
