We have prom¬ ised not to mention names, hut this Is the gist of the story . . , A young Jew, standing in a crowd that was greeting Gover¬ nor Dewey, vociferously booed the Republican candidate ,, Two policemen gi'ahbed him, and ad¬ ministered a brutal beating, and dragged him off to the police station , , . His hearing was held before a Jewish judge, who fined him . . . The young man then had to be sent to a hospital for treatment for his injuries . , , Now here comes the redeeming feature of the tale: A complaint was lodged against the two po¬ licemen, and his complaint was heard before another judge , , . This second Judge, a Catholic, set heavy bail for the police¬ men . . . Their case is coming up soon, and as a result the young Jew may be exonerated and Just punishment dealt (Hit to the policemen, who have to learn that in a democracy one is permitted to aplaud or boo In ac¬ cordance with one's likes and dislikes . . . Then there's the case of that rabbi who, on a train going from New York to , iStaraford, Oonn., was assaulted by an anti-Semitic hooligan . , Why, Messrs. Attorney General and Postmaster General can't something be done about the "United American Mothers" (With headquarters in Chicago), which still continue to dissem¬ inate the vilest sort of anti- Jew¬ ish propaganda — and tlibt through the mails? , . , YOU SHOULD K.NOW ...
