Germany’s withdrawal from the League of Nations and the disarmament conference indicates that the Nazis are seeking war, according to Salmon O. Levinson, eminent attorney, who addressed a mass meeting in the Douglas Park Auditorium. The purpose of the meeting was to organize a new committee which will foster a boycott of German-made goods.

Other speakers included Norman Thomas, New York City Socialist leader; Rabbi Solomon Goldman and Samuel H. Holland, an attorney, who was named chairman of the boycott committee.
