Meeting Called to Buck Boycott

Download PDF for this date

A new effort to force Nazi-made goods down the throats of American consumers will be made at a meeting called by the German-American Board of Trade, which is to be held at the Waldorf-Astoria tomorrow afternoon to discuss “possibilities of barter trade.”

Invitations to the meeting went out Tuesday night to more than a score of business men and to heads of foreign trade groups in New York City, it was learned yesterday.

Officers of the German-American Board of Trade were unwilling to discuss the meeting. Foreign traders who received invitations declared, however, that they understood the meeting would be devoted to discussing possibilities of exchanging German manufactured goods for American raw materials.
