Download PDF for this date

Twenty-one Jewish organizations responded to the call of the local B’nai B’rith lodge to join in an organized protest against the alien registration bills pending in Congress.

A conference of Jewish and non-Jewish groups opposed to alien registration is to be convened on April 16 by the council of representatives of these 21 organizations. With Julius Deutelbaum as chairman and Elias Goldberg as secretary, a committee of 11 is perfecting plans to enlist the aid of every immigrant group in the city as well as of liberal American public opinion against the proposed Blease, Cable and Aswell bills.

Congressman Robert H. Clancy is to address the conference on April 16.
