Keep U.S. Free of Bigotry, Mcnutt Urges at B’nai B’rith Parley

There will be no despair in the hearts of the Jews so long as one nation, America, “keeps alive the flame of hope to the oppress of all lands,” Social Security Administrator Paul V. McNutt told the Washington chapter of B’nai B’rith, meeting at the Mayflower Hotel tonight.

“Let us in America,” he said, “whatever our race, creed, or faith, dwell together in peace and maintain always the liberty of thought, action and worship which has made us a great people. Let us strengthen our defenses in behalf of tolerance and freedom. One land there must be where freedom prevails, one Government which gives to bigotry no sanction.”
