To the New York Herald Tribune:
Mr. Treister stated in his letter in your paper that the Jewish people form a very small percentage of the Communists in America. He states that "in Chicago, with a Jewish population of 400,000, there are about 150 Communists."I myself am Jewish, and I come from Chicago. I spent thirteen years in that city. Approximately 98 percent of us are Communists, and we are not ashamed of it. It is a system laid down to us by our great leader, Karl Marx, and only the cowards bide behind "democracy" or "Americanism." Furthermore, I think Mr. Treister should check up on his figures more closely if be would give out information.
Washington, D.C., Dec. 22, 1938.
