The Silver Shirt organization which recently announced its publication headquarters had been moved here from Oklahoma City, indulged in one of its weekly outbursts against the Jews in an issue of the Ranger.

“The Silver Shirts do care a snap of the fingers about the Jew,” says the SIlver Ranger on Page Two of the tabloid size broadside, but with little attention to consistency it devotes about forty columns # sarcastic and otherwise slanderous at tack on the Jewish people.

Under a column heading entitled “The Wailing Wall” notice is given to the formation of a Blue Shirt or ganization of Jews in Chicago, of which Richard S. Kar- is the “Grand Secretary”.

The Silver Ranger comments on the organization as follows:

“It seems to be a neat Jewish way of dressing men up in shirts as near the hue of Th- Silver Shirts as possible and striving to whitewash the alien element’s tactics in subjugating the United States in the name of Tolerance.”

The column sets out in furious diatribe to denounce the “race of red Hebrews” which, it states, is attemptng to subjugate the American people to their dominauce.

Under a four-column headline on its fronl page The Silver Ranger proclaims the intention of the party to strip the Jews naked and parade them on the streets as pumishment for their “deviltry”

The NRA is in for its share of criticisin by The Silver Ranger, desenbed by its editors as a “moneybund under a Jewish Secretary of the Treasury.”

It is termed the “Jewish NRA””.

The is United States Government is assailed for the new deal which, according to The Silver Ranger, is sadding every man, woman and child in the country with a debt of $29,000 per minute.

“This terrific outpouring of relief funds goes on during the minutes of the night as well as the day. There is no six o’clock quitting time on the bleeding of this titanic financial wound in the groin of Uncle Sam.”

On the back page of The Silver Ranger is a cartoon by “Hial”, sketching a steam orller bearing the tag “American Zionism” which is blocked from wrecking astruction by a man, attired in the uniform of the Silver shirt. The steam roller is loaded wth gold and dollars.

An editonal scourges Samuel Untermyer and Samuel Dickstein for spending American money on investigating Nazi propaganda here.

“The Nazis,” says the Ranger, “have about as much chance of overturning the government as they stand melting the icebergs in the Arclic with a second hand electric hair curler.”

Before an audience astimated at more than 700 people Pierre Pinchik, noted cantor of Leningrad, gave a concert of Yiddish, Russian and Hebrew compositions at the Washington Junior High School auditorium for the benefit of Duluth’s Jewish orphans.

He qppeared under the auspices of Convent Lodge, B’nai B’rith Duluth.
