Download PDF for this date

Eleven Washington clergymen have dispatched a joint cable to London urging the British Government to “hold sacred” its pledge to create a Jewish national home in Palestine. “Capitulation to totalitarian tactics and force,” the cable declared, is disgraceful before God and destructive to the Christian concept of the brother hood of man.” The Rev. Maurice Sheehy, of Catholic University, sent an individual message “in the name of Christian honor.”
