Download PDF for this date

Picketing of Radio Station WMCA by supporters of Charles E. Coughlin in protest against the dropping of his broadcasts has been abandoned. Yesterday, for the first Sunday since Dec. 19, 1938, the station’s building was not picketed. Allen Zoll, organizer of the demonstrations, is under indictment on a charge of attempting to extort $7,500 from Donald Flamm, president of the station.
