Swastika Smeared on Door of Jewish Professor in Albuquerque University

Police are investigating today the painting of a swastika on the office door of a Jewish professor of University of New Mexico. Tom Popejoy, president of the university, called the incident “deplorable” and said he regretted it very much.

The Nazi symbol was discovered by Edward M. Goldberg, a visiting assistant Professor of Government at the university. The swastika, about 15 inches high, had been painted in brown varnish covering part of Prof. Goldbergs name. Prof. Goldberg said he had no idea who might have painted the symbol.
