Forty business and professional men, representing twelve nationalities were received yesterday by President Coolidge in connection with the approaching presidential election. The President was assured by his callers that millions of American citizens of foreign extraction will support him.

The delegation was made up of a part of the advisory committee of the foreign language bureau of the Eastern division of the Republican National Committee. William Augustine Scully, director of the bureau, brought the delegation to the White House and introduced the members to the President. The nationalities represented included German, Polish, Lithuanian, Hungarian, Czecho-Slovak, Jewish, Greek, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian, Syrian and Russia.

The delegates were Judge William Blau, Joseph Brumiller, the Rev. Ladislaus Harsanyi. Davis Robson, Nicholas Gyori, P. Hamborszky, Jules D. Horvath, Dr. C. L. Orbach, Joseph Pabian, Emanuel Hertz, Israel Friedkin, J. L. Horowitz, Isaac Weinstein, Israel Unterberg, Isaac Meister, Adam Polyzoides, Constantine C. Moustakis, Louis Constantine, Andrew Jarvis, George Demeter, Axel Josephsson, Charles K. Johnnsen, George H. Eric##, J. T. Engdoll, Konrad Furubotn, Olaf Hertz##, John Musaus, George H. Bronstein, Charles ## Pape, Captain Al Helwig, Frank Frugone, A. A. Haddad, M. A. Mokarzel, Elias Mallouk, A. Atiyeh, William Catzeflis and V. Shimkin.

President Coolidge stated that the recent anti-immigration bill is no reflection upon any race. It is more of a protective measure and the benefits will also come to the foreign-born citizens.

While urging the foreign-born to drop Old World prejudices of race, the President at the same time urged that each of the different races cling to all virtues characteristic of their race.

A despatch from Washington in today’s issue of the New York “Herald-Tribune” discovered “a foremost leader of Jewish thought in the United States” in A. M. Liebling, “editor and publisher of the ‘Daily Jewish Press’ of Chicago”, who also called on the President yesterday.

This will certainly be great news to the leaders of Jewish thought in the United States as the fame of the editor and the name of the paper have not reached the American Jewish public at large.
