March 29, 1950
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The City Council here today emphasized its determination to bar discrimination against Jews in the field of sports.

The Council ruled that a local ski club, which applied for the use of a parcel of city property, must prove that the organization does not discriminate against Jews prior to receiving permission to build a projected ski jump. The application met with strong opposition on the part of many city councillors in view of the alleged anti-Jewish bias displayed by the club.
