Download PDF for this date

The Japanese Government has rejected the request of Italian Foreign Minister Galeazzo Ciano for cooperation with the Rome-Berlin axis in anti-Jewish measures on the ground of Japan’s “traditional policy of racial equality,” A.J. Cummings reports in the News-Chronicle, but Tokyo agreed to tighten up immigration regulations to prevent an increase in the present Jewish population. Mr. Cummings asks: “Do the Japanese realize that in Nazi circles they themselves are under grave suspicion as non-Aryans of an inferior type?”
