Download PDF for this date

Because of his resignation from the editorial staff of the “Freiheit,” New York Communist daily, to whose attitude with regard to the recent Palestine events he objected, Abraham Reizen, Jewish writer, was excluded from honorary membership in the Pioneer Youth Organization which was granted him during his recent visit here. It was also decided to take from him his red pioneer neckband given him. The organization, in making these decisions, branded Reizen as a “traitor.”
