Statue of Liberty Sold in Ten-cent Replicas, “made in Germany”

Download PDF for this date

American liberty; manufactured in Germany, can be bought for ten cents. Local manufacturers have been obviously remiss in encouraging the industry.

Statue of Liberty souvenir replicas which are on sale on the government reservation at Bedloes Island were manufactured in das Vaterland. The legend “Made in Germany” appears in small print beneath the base of the replicas. The matter has been called to the attention of the War Department and the Department of Interior at Washington, and U. S. Senators Robert F. Wagner and Royal S. Copeland in the form of a resolution passed by the National Executive Council of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States at a meeting held in New York City recently.
