Words of appreciation and praise are being received by the Jewish Daily Bulletin from its numerous Jewish and non-Jewish readers.
C. B. McAfee of the McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago, writes: “Let me congratulate you on the one thousandth edition of the Bulletin, both for its appearance and the quality of its matter. I am putting it in my files so that I may use its valuable information from time to time as occasion may offer.”
The following message was received from E, Tallmage Root, Secretary of the Interchurch Fellowship, Boston: “Congratulations to the Jewish Daily Bulletin on its special number to commemorate the one thousandth issue, from the Interchurch Fellowship and the Massachusetts Federation of Churches. The office of the latter receives the Bulletin and keeps it on file, and it gives much appreciated information.”
The “Jewish Voice,” Newark, writes: “Observing the great moral and educational success which the little bulletin has met with and considering how it penetrated the circles of our Jewish leaders and social workers we feel, and we often expressed this thought openly, that this little bulletin which contains the latest reports and news from Jewish life everywhere proves that something bigger, something more substantial must be created in the field of Jewish-English information.
“This little paper, which is so full of information from all parts of the world. proves to us what it could do if it had the necessary means and the well deserved recognition among our intelligent masses as well as among our leaders.
“The same Messrs. Landau and Spiegelman and their co-workers are competent and have all facilities to give us such numbers as this one more often, at least once a week if the Jewish masses render their support.”
JEWISH PRESS CRITICIZES SENATOR JAMES REED FOR STATEMENT ON FORD TRIAL
The statement made by Senator James Reed of Missouri that he regretted that Ford had withdrawn from the Sapiro libel suit is severely criticized by the Jewish press.
“Senator Reed seems to resent strongly the fact that Henry Ford has recanted. Simply speaking, it means that the Senator is sorry that the libels against the Jews were withdrawn and that all of the accusations were proved to be without any foundation. This, in our opinion, is inconceivable. It is the more so uncomprehensible in the mind of a man who intends to run for the presidency of our country which has alwavs held in high esteem the principles of liberty and tolerance. A man who declares publicly that he resents the fact that the truth concerning a people was proven beyond a doubt to public opinion, is not fit to be a candidate for the presidency of the United States,” declared the “Jewish Daily News.”
The “Jewish Morning Journal” in commenting upon Senator Reed’s statement writes, “Senator Reed tells us frankly that he resents the fact that Henry Ford had apologized to the Jews and settled the case. We may indeed thank Senator Reed for his sincerity. Should he receive the Democratic nomination the Jewish citizens will know how to express their opinion of him.”
