Tonight Broadway swings solidly into line in support of the anti-Nazi boycott when her first citizens participate in “The Boycott Brevities of 1935,” which the Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi League is presenting at the Hippodrome.

Sponsored by outstanding civic, clerical and social leaders of the city, the benefit will present more than 100 individual acts featuring a large diversity of talent, drawn from the stage, screen and radio worlds.

Samuel Untermyer, president of the League, will outline the latest developments in the boycott, a movement which he had led since its inception.

To fulfill its announced intention of making one million or more Ford V-8 cars and trucks this year, the Ford Motor Company will utilize 3,200,000 pounds of wool for upholstery, floor coverings, lubricants and anti-rust preparations. That quality of wool will require more than 800,000 sheep to produce it.
