CHICAGO (Jul. 18)
Jewish shopkeepers suffered the most serious damages in the Negro rioting last weekend on Chicago’s west side which is now largely a Negro area where most of the stores in the once completely Jewish area are Jewish-owned.
As peace was restored by the Illinois National Guard, estimates of damages to stores in the area were given today as more than $1, 000, 000. Officials stressed that there had been no indications that any of the looting was inspired by anti-Semitic attitudes among the looters. They said there was no evidence — as there was in Negro riots in other cities last year — of specific anti-Semitic acts and catcalls by the rioters.
