(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Jewish issue was injected in the parliamentary byelection which will take place in Northhampton.

Mr. Hailwood, an independent Conservative, is opposing the regular Conservative candidate. Hailwood’s campaign is strongly featured by anti-Semitic propaganda. He urges the abandonment by England of the League of Nations since the League, he asserts, “is being used against Britain by alien international financiers, mostly Jewish.”
