To the Editor, Jewish Daily Bulletin:

I have just arrived from Argentina, where I have lived for twenty-two years, and I must protest against the story sent you from Beunos Aires by A. L. Korber. The incidents as therein narrated are, to the best of my knowledge, truthfully told, but I object to the alarming deductions of the writer.

Argentinians of Jewish faith and Argentinians of other persuasions have long lived in harmony, and just because of a few scattered occurrences here and there it is not right to speak of “preparing the ground for anti-Semitism.”

Mr. Kober seems to be highly apprehensive concerning the Nazi movement. Believe me, the Nazis are in a laughable minority at the present time and, unless more than two decades of life spent in Argentina are of no value, the few Ar-#########nomic situation, are now favorable to Nazism will soon see the error of their ways.

To the Editor, Jewish Daily Bulletin:

Father Coughlin is to be praised warmly by all right-thinking Jews for his recent radio address in which he denounced racial and religious bigotry and called on Jews and non-Jews to stand together.

Father Coughlin has long had a place in the hearts of all people, regardless of creed, who approve of a man of standing fighting in the interests of the abused, honestly and energetically, and I think it a pity that men can be so vicious as to try to make us Jews doubt Father Coughlin’s fair attitude.
