FOR JEWISH IMMIGRANTS

New York Times Book Review,
January 4, 1920

 

To combat the influences put forth by radical associations the Immigrant Publication Society has issued several pamphlets and leaflets in the native languages of those it is intended to benefit, dealing with the advantages derived from citizenship and the duties devolving upon those on whom it conferred. In this guide a résumé is given of the early history of the United Stales and the manner in which Independence was obtained. Immigrants are told of the freedom they enjoy in America, where all that is asked of them is obedience to humane laws. There are also many hints on naturalization and the means of obtaining it and a condensed compendium of laws affecting conduct in public, marriage, divorce, desertion, lotteries, &c. The guide is admirably adapted for the purposes intended.
