Called Jew, ‘aryan’ Brings Libel Suit

Is the word “Jew” libelous when applied to an “Aryan?”

The Warsaw court will answer this question as result of a libel suit brought today by an “Aryan” firm against the Gazeta Warszawska, organ of the anti-Semitic National Democratic party.

The paper, in publishing a list of Jewish firms to be boycotted by non-Jews, also included, by error, a non-Jewish company, the proprietor of which is able to prove his “Aryan” descent.
