Download PDF for this date

Jewish, Catholic and Protestant religious leaders and organizations joined Saturday in urging voters to favor the non-sectarian, non-partisan and non-political $50,000,000 bond issue for state institutions which is to be voted on tomorrow. Among those whom the Citizens’ Committee on Care of the State’s Unfortunates announced in support of the proposal was Rabbi Stephen S. Wise who made public a statement urging the voters to favor the bond issue, which he said would be “a long-deferred act of reparation to neglected wards of the state, whether they be in hospitals or prisons.”
