Three more war industries in Now Jersey, each holding Government contracts, have agreed to delete references to race and religion from their application blanks, the President’s Committee on Fair Employment Practice announced yesterday.

The three firms, which are executing contracts for both the Navy Department and the War Department, are; the Pollak Manufacturing Company in Arlington; the Tung-Sol Radio Tubes Division in Newark, and the Thomas A. Edison Co. in West Orange.
