Download PDF for this date

Anti-Semitic, anti-religious and anti-Negro activities must be resisted no matter what form they take, speakers declared last night at a dinner meeting of the Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi League held in the Hotel Pennsylvania.

In a message to the diners, Gov. Dewey pointed out that “we are … a nation of minorities. If we allow discrimination against one group, we open the door to discrimination against others.” Sen. James Murray of Montana warned against German attempts to convince the American people that the Germans were not responsible for the Nazi terror.
