Download PDF for this date

Post office authorities are preparing a report on publications inciting racial hatred, following a speech yesterday by Rep. Samuel Dickstein, New York Democrat, who has introduced a bill to bar such material from the mails.

A similar bill, introduced a by Dickstein during the last Congress, was never acted upon. This time Dickstein has asked a hearing on his proposal, and chairman Thomas G. Burch of the Committee on Post Office and Post Roads, yesterday requested the post office to report on the bill.
