(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Rabbi Louis I. Newman of Temple Emanu-El, San Francisco, for the second time in three years was the Fourth of July orator at the Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, at the civic exercises, held under the auspices of the city. Rabbi Newman spoke of the achievements of American airmen, including Charles A. Levine, as proof that the immigrants and their children are rendering notable service in the development and enrichment of American life.

“Even as our airmen have vindicated the unity of our races and faiths within America, so may they bring to pass unity among the nations of mankind whose frontiers their flights have annihilated. The free air of the skies can help free men from fear of their brothers.”
