Download PDF for this date

The Council Against Intolerance in America today opened a nationwide National Seal Week, aided by more than 200 women’s organizations, aimed at raising funds to carry on an educational campaign against intolerance. The official seal in the campaign is a painting of “The Spirit of Tolerance” by McClelland Barclay, for which Katharine Hepburn posed. The primary objective of the drive is increased distribution of the teachers’ manual, “An American Answer to Intolerance.”
