Distribution of Anti-semitic Publication Banned by Arkansas House

The distribution of an anti-Semitic newspaper attacking President Kennedy for naming two Jews to his Cabinet prompted the Arkansas House today to revitalize a resolution which makes it mandatory that such material be approved by the House clerk before it can be distributed in the chamber.

The two inside pages of the four-page tabloid-sized publication, listing itself as the official organ of the National States’ Rights party, were devoted to anti-Jewish quotations from various sources, including German ones. Mrs. E.K. Bishop of North Little Rock, describing herself as national vice-chairman of the party, said she had distributed copies to the House.
