Download PDF for this date

Nazi propagandists are at work throughout the United States, Judge Leopold Glass of Philadelphia declared at a conference of the third district of B’nai B’rith, at the Chelsea Hotel here.

The Hitlerites never will control the American government, the judge said, but they threaten to attack the Jews in this country through economic and social discrimination.

Sigmund Livingston of Chicago, founder and chairman of the Anti-Defamation League, was a guest at the meeting. Others included Richard E. Gutstadt of Cincinnati, director of the League; Dr. David Phillipson, dean of American rabbis; Dr. William Fineschreiber of Philadelphia, and Judge Joseph L. Kun of that city.

Abraham Bercovitz of Philadelphia presided.
