THE JEWISH WAR VETERANS OF THE UNITED STATES AT ITS FORTY-SECOND ENCAMPMENT ADOPTED RESOLUTIONS DEMANDING THAT CONGRESS PROBE UN-AMERICAN ACTIVITIES, DEPORT ALIEN PROPAGANDISTS, CANCEL THE CITIZENSHIP OF NATURALIZED PROPAGANDISTS AND TAKE CRIMINAL ACTION AGAINST THOSE WHO ARE NATIVE-BORN. ANOTHER RESOLUTION URGES THE STATE DEPARTMENT TO INTERVENE WITH THE POLISH GOVERNMENT ON BEHALF OF THE JEWS.

THE CONCLUDING SESSION RE-ELECTED HARRY SCHAFFER OF PITTSBURGH NATIONAL COMMANDER.

SAMUEL UNTERMYER, IN AN ADDRESS TO THE CONVENTION, THREATENED CRIMINAL ACTION TO HALT THE USE OF SWASTIKAS ON AMERICAN FLAGS USED BY NEW YORK GERMAN GROUPS IN POSTERS ADVERTISING GERMAN DAY OCT. 3. HE URGED INTENSIFICATION OF THE ANTI-NAZI BOYCOTT.

THE RECORD OF THE JEWS IN WAR AND PEACE WAS PRAISED BY BRIG. GEN. FRANK T. HINES, NATIONAL ADMINISTRATOR OF VETERANS AFFAIRS, ADDRESSING THE CONVENTION DINNER SATURDAY NIGHT.

COL. THEODORE ROOSEVELT JR. WARNED THAT INTOLERANCE AND BIGOTRY WHICH, HE SAID, ARE “RUNNING LIKE WILDFIRE THROUGH THE WORLD,” AND ARE FOUND IN OUR OWN COUNTRY, “WILL TAKE CONTROL IF WE ABANDON DEMOCRACY.” HE SAID THAT “OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO PROTECT MINORITIES.”
