Download PDF for this date

B’nai B’rith’s Argo lodge here has sent a $100 contribution to Jefferson Military College, Washington, Miss., which rejected an offer of $50,000,000 to teach racism and bigotry. The money will go to help offset the school’s financial crisis. It was learned here that other contributions from Jewish sources are being sent to the Mississippi institution.
