A Warning to Advertisers

Labor Board Rapped for Allowing Bigotry

Irresponsible Newspapers Again Flood
Community with Unethical Solicitations

Irresponsible and unethical solicitations of advertising from local
merchants, by newspapers without circulation in Detroit, again was in
evidence here this week.
Far in advance of Rosh Hashanah, periodicals—one with a Chicago
address and the others published in New York—are soliciting advertising
here by approaching merchants whose advertisements have appeared in
The Jewish News.
They are pursuing a practice that already has been condemned by
national organizations by clipping advertising from our columns and
billing the merchants as if they had appeared in their paper.
Two of the papers, published in New York, are organs of national
organizations and are known to have a circulation here not exceeding 200.
The Chicago paper has less than a dozen readers here and is reputed
to have less than 300 readers in Chicago, where it appears only on holi-
days, to capitalize on the festivals as means of getting revenue.
Local advertisers who receive statements from such periodicals are
cautioned to check on them carefully and not to be misled by them. A
number of merchants already have turned their statements over to The
Jewish News and they are being acted upon by a national organization.

N.Y. Considers Asking Rockwell, 9 Nazi Storm Troopers
Supreme Court Aid
Convicted in New Orleans Court
to Ban Rockwell

NEW YORK, (JTA) --- The
City of New York, over-ruled
by the State's highest - tribunal
on its refusal to grant a permit
for a public rally desired by
George Lincoln Rockwell, lead-
er of the American Nazi party,
reviewed the entire case to
determine whether to take an
appeal on the issue to the
United States Supreme Court.
The seven-man State Court of
Appeals upheld Rockwell's
right to hold such a meeting in
New York City by a unanimous
decision. The tribunal affirmed,
without a written opinion, a rul-
ing handed down last February
by the Appellate Division,
which had reversed a decision
given in August, 1960, by Su-
preme Court Justice Henry
Rockwell had appealed for a
permit to hold a rally in Union
Square originally on July 4,
1960. Parks Commissioner New-
bold Morris denied the permit;
and Mayor Robert F. Wagner
called Rockwell "a half-penny
Hitler," holding that his preach-
ment of religious and racial
hatred would incite to riot and
The New York Civil Liberties
Union appealed . on Rockwell's
behalf for a court order re-
versing the decision by Morris
and Wagner.
Although declaring Rock-
well's views as "hateful," the
CLU insisted that the denial of
a permit violates the constitu-
tional guarantee of free speech
which, it stated, "applies to all,
no matter how, obnoxious the
person or the ideology he rep-
Justice Epstein upheld the
permit denial ordered by the
city officials.
While neither Mayor Wagner
nor Commissioner Morris would
comment on the Court of Ap-
peals decision, Corporation
Counsel Leo Larkin said he
would review the case before
determining whether to appeal
to the U.S. Supreme Court.

A New Orleans court Tuesday

publican, complained to Secretary
of State Rusk that he learned, in
booking a commercial airline
trip to Africa and Asia, that he
would be barred by Saudi Arabia
from using civil air terminal
facilities built at Dhahran by

In a letter to Rusk, Halpern

Saudi Arabia despite that nation's
continued discrimination against
American Jews.
