Untermyer Gratified

Samuel Untermyer, president of the Nonsectarian Anti-Nazi League to Champion Human Rights, yesterday expressed gratification at the step taken by William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, in Washington in asking that the boycott be more strictly applied to German imports.

“I am greatly pleased with the statement issued by Mr. Green,” Untermyer said. “His action is in line with what I understood to be the position of the American Federation of Labor on the question of the anti-German boycott.”

Mr. Untermyer declared that the boycott is becoming more effective with recent resolutions of American buyers to refrain from purchasing wares made in Germany. He said that the efforts of his boycott committee are being intensified and that he anticipates a gradual tightening of the boycott until the objective of the committee is gained.
