Download PDF for this date

Professionally-made stickers bearing black swastikas on a red background and the words “We Are Back” were found pasted on windows on a dozen downtown stores in Dallas, police reported today. All of the stores are owned by Jewish merchants.

Police Lt. Jack Revill said a witness, whose name he withheld, gave a description of the man who placed the signs on the windows. The police officer said the witness said the man held the signs against his stomach, looked into the windows as though window shopping and then stuck on the signs.
