fuss (center). For his outstanding sales work during June, he has
his name inscribed on the permanent office trophy being handed to

Robert Blackwell Seeks Congress Seat
as GOP Independent; Pleads Amity,
Elimination of Strife Among Races

Robert B. Blackwell, executive
secretary of the State Labor Medi-
ation Board, candidate for Con-
gress in the new 1st District on
the Republican ticket, explaining
his attitude "after what happened
in San Francisco," declared that
he views it as vital that the two-
party system should be maintained
and protected.
Determined to conduct an inde-
pendent campaign strictly on is-
sues consistent with the needs of
his district, Blackwell maintains
that "both parties have survived
because they have the guts to prac-

has a long record for communal
and civil services, labor and hu-
man relations groups' affiliations.
Showing that the district in
which he is a candidate has a 62-
to 70 per cent Negro population,
Blackwell said he believes it
should have a representative and
that the man representing this or
any other district should keep in
view the urgent need to cement
the best relations among all races,
to eliminate hatreds and to strive
for the amity that is so vital for
the most peaceful cooperative ef-
forts among all Americans.

British News Survey
Reveals Exclusion of
Jews in Most Schools

Harry Grossinger, Operator
of Famous Resort, Dead at 76

LONDON (JTA) — Although
"nothing aroused more horror and
anger in Britain than Hitler's treat-
ment of the Jews," there is still a
quota system in education, and ex-
clusion of Jews from certain clubs
and professions. This charge was
made by the Sunday Express in a
survey entitled, "Are We Fair to
the Jews?"
Calling attention to the fact that
there is rarely any "formal bar-
rier" against the Jews, the article
said that most schools are operat-
ing a quota system of accepting up
to 10 or 15 per cent "non-Christ-
On the social level, golf and
tennis clubs are "chief strong-
holds of anti-Semitism," with
one of five golf clubs in England
and four of five in Scotland ex-
cluding Jews. The survey showed
that commerce and industry were
free of bias but that there is a
measure of prejudice against
Jews in joint stock banks.
The Daily Telegraph published a
letter to the newspaper saying that
anti-Semitism is "condoned and
practiced" in Britain, despite of-
ficial denials.
The writer, J. P. H. Sargent,
refers to the Mancroft case and
asks: "Are we now so bereft of
national character that we act at
the dictation of the Arab world

LIBERTY, N.Y. — Harry Gross-
inger, the man who ran one of
the world's largest and best known
resort hotels, died July 22 at age
Although his wife, Jennie, was
official hostess at Grossinger's
it was said that Mr. Grossinger
actually ran the hotel operations,
assisted in recent years by their
son Paul, as general manager.
He supervised the building of
all the additions that had been
raised during the last 50 years to
the original seven-room farmhouse.
Mr. Grossinger did the buying
for the hotel kitchen, being driven
twice a week in his custom-made
Continental limousine to New
York's Washington Market. He
continued his activities even after
a severe heart atack this year had
sent him to a hospital in New York
for several weeks.
Born in Austria, he came to
this country early in the cen-
tury, as did Jennie Grossinger,
his third cousin. A tailor by
trade, he was married to Mrs.
Grossinger in 1912. .
Jennie was waitress in a family-
owned restaurant business on the
Lower East Side. When her father
had a nervous breakdown in 1914,
the family moved to a small farm
near Liberty, in Sullivan County,
and began taking in summer board-
ers. Mr. Grossinger, to help out
the family, continued to work in
New York, becoming production
chief of a garment shop.
From a profit of $81 that first
year (there were 9 boarders), the
Grossingers continued to prosper.
As the hotel enterprise grew, add-
ing on buildings, Mr. Grossinger
left New York to rejoin his wife
and young son in Sullivan County.

Party also has "plenty of guts."
Blackwell's position definitely is

Keating and Governors Romney
Ind Rockefeller.
"Unity in a party is not con-
formity," Blackwell said, and
stated "I will not alter my views
just for the sake of accommo-
dation. More important to me
than election to any office is the
maintenance of the integrity of
one's beliefs."

a highly qualified candidate whose
philosophy will be a boon in leg-
