Eiplnln Connection With
To th tMitr of Tlx Kttnlt World!
In view of the statement made by
Mrs. Hose Pastor Stokes In the courad
of her testimony that "when twenty
three years old th& romoved to New
York and became tho editor of the
Jewish Dally News," permit us to
enter an emphatic denlnl of that
statement. Mrs. 8toke.i was at na
tlms editor of the Jewish Dally News,
for some time. Mr a Htokes was a
contributor' to the English depart
ment of the Jewish Dally News, her
particular work being In connection
with the girts' department of that
Whatever Mrs. Stokes wrote at that
time was In accordance with the pol
icy of the Jewish Dally News:
she, was very tamo thon. In justice
to us It should be said that the Jew
ish Dally News has always been dis
tinctly American, and opposed to the
vlewc now htdd by Mrs. Stokes and
those who think with her.
Mny we ask you to give the same
prominence to our denial as was given
to the false statement of Mrs. Stokes.
