WASHINGTON (Jul. 8)
The Democratic Party “will not inject racial prejudice or religious bigotry” into the Presidential campaign, Frank E. McKinney, Democratic National Chairman, pledged today.
In a reply to an appeal this week-end by six Jewish, Catholic and Protestant leaders to both major political parties to keep the election campaign free of race prejudice and religious bigotry, Mr. McKinney stated: “The Democratic Party will not condone any such activity in behalf of any of its candidates. It will vigorously condemn and disavow any such activity should it develop.”
