Denounces Indecent
Dress of Both Sexes

. - Indecent manner of dress on
the part of both men and wom-
en,- especially prevalent during
the summer months, was sharp-
ly. denounced by the Lubavitch-

yoke of decency, exemplified
by their indecent manner of
clothing, and appealed for a
greater measure of restraint
and self respect.
