Ku Klux Klan to Support Jewish Candidate in Atlantic City


In its fight against the Catholic Mayor of Atlantic City, Edward Boder, the Ku Klux Klan is going to the extent of throwing the weight of its support to the Jewish opponent of the Mayor, Mr. Harry Bacharach, a brother of Congressman Bacharach of New Jersey. This is the first time in the history of the Klan that it appears as the supporter of a Jew, but the Klan, which is hostile to both the Jews and the Catholics is apparently working on the principle of choosing the lesser evil. The election will take place on May 13th.
