(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Publication of Henry Ford’s recantation in the “Dearborn Independent” is demanded by the “American Israelite” one of the outstanding Jewish weeklies in the United States.

In its issue of today it carries the following in a box:

“Whenever Henry Ford publishes in the ‘Dearborn Independent’ his ‘ap##ogy’ and retraction, together with the solemn assurance that he has forever abandoned his course of vilifying the Jews, he will be regarded as hotest and sincere in his protestations ofrepentance and desire to make amesls.”

Commenting on the Ford apogy, the “American Israelite” remarks.

With full appreciation for the actful and diplomatic part Arthur risbane had in the adjustment of this matter as Ford’s representative our hats should come off to Louis Ma hall of New York, lawyer, representive of the best in American Jewry, resident of the American Jewish committee.

“It was Mr. Marshall who was selected to receive the official coy of Ford’s ‘apology’, which he did with evident reluctance, as not wishe to have anything to do with so contemptible a matter, but being threin he bote himself with dignity and a manner that must impress all thing people with the immense superity of a class that can produce a this Marshall over the one that give us Henry Fords.”
