Download PDF for this date

The candidacy of B. C. Vladeck, General Manager of the Jewish Daily Forward, for the House of Representatives, on the Socialist ticket, is lauded in editorials which appeared in the New York World-Telegram and the Jewish Morning Journal.

The Telegram urges the election of Mr. Vladeck in the following terms:

“To voters of independent mind, irrespective of usual party leanings, we specially recommend B. Charney Vladeck, Socialist candidate for representative from the Eighth Congressional District, Brooklyn.

“Mr. Vladeck is a highly educated liberal who has made his business experience produce practical and progressive benefits of labor. He is not only a thinker, but an excellent speaker. When he ran in the same district in 1930, he got the biggest vote ever polled for a Socialist candidate for Congress in the East.

“Mr. Vladeck, we think, is the kind of a man a reconstructive Congress needs to help liberalize its thought and speed up its action. He should be elected.”

The Morning Journal says: “. . . we recommend the Socialist candidate for Congress, Mr. B. C. Vladeck. He is an able and energetic person, an excellent speaker, familiar with general and Jewish problems, especially East European problems, a communal worker and leader, who occupies an important position in the public Jewish life of New York ; a man of moderate views who is far from being a fanatical party man.”
