Download PDF for this date

After consultation with other East End members of Parliament, Major Clement R. Atlee, leader of the Labor Opposition in the House of Commons, decided today to request the home office to prohibit a proposed fascist march through the East End on Sunday, the eve of Rosh Hashonah, the Jewish New Year. Grave disorders are feared if the scheduled parade is permitted.
