See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Leading Protestant ministers of Chicago announced they would co-operate to their fullest ability with the boycott against German – made goods now being carried on by the Chicago Committee for the Defense of Human Rights Against Nazism, of which Dr. Paul Hutchinson, managing editor of the Christian Century, is president, and Salmon O. Levinson, chairman.

After discussing ways and means to throw the weight of their influence in the fight against Nazism, the ministers informed Dr. Hutchinson and Dr. James M. Yard, secretary of the Chicago Committee, that they would immediately co-operate.
