Download PDF for this date

The American Federation of Labor and the Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi League have issued a call for a mass meeting to be held at the Hippodrome on April 10 to protest Chancellor Hitler’s new military policy as a threat to world peace.

Officers of both organizations and prominent national figures will speak. Spokesmen for the Anti-Nazi League will assert that the only way to cope with the German war menace is the economic boycott.

The World Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi Council, of which Samuel Untermyer is president, is calling on all affiliated boycott organizations in twelve countries to hold mass meetings of the same character, with the aim of achieving a united international effort. Mr. Untermyer is also president of the Anti-Nazi League.

Admission to the Hippodrome will be free, it was announced Friday.
