Ten Years Ago in the Jewish Daily Bulletin

Senator Robert LaFollette, Progressive candidate for president, was charged by Louis Marshall with using his government franking privilege to send through the mails a piece of literature definitely anti-Semitic. The Senator answered the charge by saying that he had not read the article in question and had used his frank as a favor to another Senator and had withdrawn it as soon as he discovered the nature of the article. His career, he said, was always pro-Jewish.
