PHILADELPHIA, (JTA) —
The American Mercury maga-
zine, which has been accused of
publishing prolific anti - Semi-
mitic material in recent years,
has virtually disappeared from
newstands throughout Phila-
delphia, it was learned here.
Previously, newsdealers and dis-
tributors in the New York area
had dropped the periodical after
a virtual ban was reported by
printers against it.
Samuel Gentile, president of
the Philadelphia Newspaper
and Magazine Chauffeurs and
Handlers Union, local 628, said
that distributors "have not been
handling the Mercury for nearly
six months." He added that the
only copies coming to Phila-
delphia would be those coining
directly to subscribers or dis-
tributors by mail from the pub-
lisher. He also disclosed that
one dealer, who received copies
by mail, refused to sell it after
he had been informed of its
