Postcards mailed by the “Nationalist Information Service” of Farmington, Mich., advertising an anti-Semitic book, have been ruled non-mailable under the Federal code by the Post Office Solicitor, it was disclosed this week.

The organization, headed by one Russell Roberts, whose past activities brought him mention in “The Troublemakers,” used the cards to advertise a book dealing with Walter Winchell, noted columnist. The text of the card contained statements referring to Winchell as “the Jew stink bomb of the air” and as “the mouthpiece of the Sanhedrin.”
