Council of Jewish Women Addresses Plea to President

Download PDF for this date

The National Council of Jewish Women, speaking in behalf of its 52,000 members throughout the United States, has voiced its plea for a reduction in naval armaments through the London Conference, in the following statement addressed to President Hoover and Secretary Stimson, by the Chairman of its Department of Peace, Mrs. Oscar S. Marx of St. Louis:

“The National Council of Jewish Women believes that the readiness to effect a reduction in naval strength, as enunciated by President Hoover in his Armistice Day address, has the hearty support of the American people and, therefore, protests against any deviation from that attitude. We urge that every effort be made to bring about a radical reduction of armaments, especially since the five powers meeting in London are signatories of the Pact of Paris, renouncing war as an instrument of national policy. The National Council of Jewish Women pledges its support to the President of the United States and to our country’s delegation in London, for the consummation of a radical naval reduction.”
