See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An organized guard has been formed by members of the Synagogue Absi Sholen to protect the Synagogue property and also Rabbi Jacob Goldman as the result of the threatening Ku Klux Klan message received by the Rabbi Wednesday, warning him to “look out for himself and his church.”

This message to the Rabbi together with the one received by Owen P. McAloon, N.Y., N.H. and H. crossing tender, prominent in Irish Catholic organizations, on the same day, has aroused both Jews and the Irish of this city. The police are investigating.
