Virtually all private in the New York area exclude Negroes and Jews as members except those clubs organized by Jews and NegroesAnd the membership of the latter usually is equally exclusive But the AntiD efamation League has come up with anew gambit It cites an appeal by the Merchants Club on a tax refund action before the United States Court Claims in De cember 1945 The club a c co r d i n g to Forster furnished an affidavit which asserted that it occupies an important place in the tex tile industry Membership in the club the statement went on is regarded as a business neces sity by the top
