Technocrats Demand Closing of Foreign Language Organizations, Newspapers

The suppression of all foreign language organizations throughout the United States and the abolition of all foreign language newspapers, advertising and radio broadcasts is urged by Technocracy, Inc., a political organization, in its program made public here today in the form of a full-page paid advertisement in the New York newspapers.

Outlining a number of suggestions necessary for “total war strategy,” Technocracy, Inc. demands that “all foreign language periodical publications, foreign language advertising, and foreign language radio programs for American consumption” be suppressed. It also asks that “the Government of the United States…. shall abolish all foreign language and hyphenated American organizations, associations, and fraternal societies regardless of whether they have been formed to promote political, commercial, cultural, educational, linguistic, artistic, or other relationships.”
