Download PDF for this date

Jewish residents of Station 6 Beach, near Hamilton, Ontario, were incensed yesterday when they found on the beach a sign, eight feet square, saying: “No Jews Allowed on Shore Within 800 Feet Either Way of This Sign.”

Police, when informed, had the sign taken down, and they are now trying to discover the persons, believed to be Hitlerites, who put it up. The City Council of Hamilton has ordered an investigation.
