Download PDF for this date

A flat repudiation of any committee or individual supporting his presidential campaign on the basis of racial or religious prejudice was issued by Wendell L. Willkie here on Friday.

“I don’t want the support of that kind of people,” the Republican candidate said in reply to a statement by a reporter that anti-Semitic groups in New York were supporting him.
