Download PDF for this date

The 58th annual national convention of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States will open here tomorrow with more than 1,500 delegates expected. The conference will end Sunday.

A report distributed today among the delegates calls attention to resurgent Nazi and Fascist movements in Germany and Italy and urges “extreme caution” in the extension of American aid to “countries menaced by Nazism, Fascism and Communism.” The delegates are expected to call for enactment of Federal FEPC legislation and revision of the McCarran Immigration Act.
