Six members of the Jewish Defense League were arrested today in front of the New York Society of Security Analysists at 15 Williams Street where Otto N. Miller, Standard Oil of California board chairman, was to deliver a speech. The six were arrested for unlawful assembly. The JDL was protesting a letter SOCAL sent to its employes and stockholders which urged support of the Arabs. The JDL issued a statement which said, “We will never let corporate interest sell Jewish blood for our oil.”
