8 Anti-semites Convicted of Disrupting Philadelphia Tolerance Parley

Eight of eleven men accused of breaking up a tolerance meeting and of spreading anti-Semitic literature which terrorized Jewish merchants in West Philadelphia last night were found guilty by a jury in Quarter Sessions Court of inciting to riot.

The men were charged with disrupting a meeting of the Committee for Racial and Religious Tolerance which was held last March 12 at the Y.M.C.A. The trial opened yesterday morning before Judge Francis Shunk Brown Jr. Counsel for the defendants announced the verdict would be appealed.
