Argentine Police Prevent Anti-jewish Riot in Buenos Aires

Argentine police yesterday prevented a mob from marching on and burning down the Israel Society headquarters in Buenos Aires in the aftermath of a bomb attempt on the life of President Peron, the New York Times reported today.

In a dispatch from the Argentine capital, the newspaper said that a mob which had attacked and burned the headquarters of the Socialist Party, the Radical Party and the Jockey Club of Buenos Aires was forming for a march on the Israel Society when the police turned it back. Some of the members of the mob shouted anti-Jewish slogans, the Times reported.
