A five-year study delineating,
a nine-point program for effec-
tively combating the profes-
sional bigot and rabble-rouser
has been issued by the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee.
Entitled "Deflating the Pro-
fessional Bigot," the pamphlet
shows that the most successful
way to defeat a bigot is the
"quarantine method," which de-
nies unwarranted publicity to
the hatemonger. The following
are the nine basic principles of
I. The quarantine method stresses
that no one is to be pressured.
Furnishing information and explain-
ing the harmful results of adver-
tising the troublemaker are the
only permissible steps in dealing
with the press, radio and television.
2. Do not debate the bigot's state-
ments. It only strengthens his abil-
ity to deal in specious generalizing.
3. No matter how defamatory a
bigot's statements, suing him for
libel, even though successful, af-
fords publicity and "martyrdom"
which more than compensate for
4. Publicity can be effective if
it unmasks those persons of "re-
spectability" who secretly help
bigots. It can likewise be used
where a bigot is purposefully con-
cealing facts about himself.
5. Competent community rela-
tions organizations should observe
the activities of hatemongers and
furnish adequate information to
6. Those who know a bigot is
coining should privately expose him
7. After a rabble-rouser has
rented a hall there should be no
public argument about it. If can-
celling provides a legitimate griev-.

8. Where authorities who control
the use of public property, such
as a school auditorium, have an
established right to reject undesir-
able applicants, exclusion of the
bigot is in order. But if the prop-
erty is available to everyone he
should be given the hall.
9. If the bigot or his literature
is being promoted in the community,
the situation should be used con-
structively to interest more people
in projects for improving intergroup
