Lowenstein says German Boss will finish within two years democratic system would help German jewry immediately Pola Negri May act in Germany says Chancellor new York Sta a Prince Hubertus Friedrich Lowenstein arriving in the United states saturday on his first american visit predicted the downfall of Adolf Hitler within two years and announced that he would assume All responsibility of leadership. His democratic system of government would relieve the desperate situation of German jews at once. The Prince a Young Man of Twenty eight was the founder of the Republican Reichs Banner organization in Germany a counter movement to the nazi government in its Early Days and is now a voluntary exile from his native land. His enmity of the Hitler regime is regarded with such seriousness that a Price of 3,000 Marks has been placed on his head. He is Here on a lecture tour during which he Hopes to solidify anti nazi feeling in this country. A Hitler we Hope a said the former Leader of the Catholic centrist party in Berlin a will remain in Power for another year or two. By that time our plans will be matured our organization strengthened and hitlers fall a certainty due to the economic crisis and the dissension in the German a for the last two years i have been constantly working to create an organization of All germans who Are not communists and who do not like Hitler a he continued. A nazi Germany is not identical to the real Germany. There Are 35,000,000 people in the world who Are sympathetic to our cause of restoring a democratic system of government in Germany. The jews in America can be of considerable help to us by supporting our movement. A for that matter a he went on to say a jews throughout the world car help their Brethren in Germany to the greatest extent by rallying to our organization. In fact it is the Only Way by which i believe the German jews May be same conditions. Prince Lowenstein is of the opinion that jews in Germany Are still suffering As Many hardships and restrictions now As when Hitler first came into Power. A the situation he remarked a has not been relieved any whatsoever. Only the nazi propaganda machine works a Little better and the real stories do not get oat. No jew can become a lawyer a doctor or an official of the state. Neither have the conditions of shopkeepers or commercial jews been a i am ambitious a he earnestly stated a but i am willing to assume responsibility of leadership. With this democratic system of government that our party will set up the condition of German jewry will be relieved at once. That is Why jews throughout the world should support our organization. A the popular foundation of Hitler ism has already become a thing of the past. The so called purge of june 30 last year was the turning Point. This Cost Hitler his popularity with the people. He is no longer greeted in the streets with the same acclaim that was his two years about the Saar. Prince Lowenstein hoped the Saar could be made a nucleus for a new German government while Hitler was still in Power but in this he was disappointed. Quot i was fighting for the status quo. The people who voted did not even know what it meant. However i expected the vote to turn out As it did for two reasons. First because the terror of the nazi movement was tremendous and the pressure terrific. The polls were patrolled by storm troopers. The Deutsche front had issued special cards to those who wished to vote for Germany and every voter was asked by the nazis to show his card at the polling place. If he did not have one it was known that he was in favor of the status new York Sta a is Pola Negri Siren of the silent screen Days jewish the question perplexed motion picture circles in new York last Friday following the receipt of word from Berlin that Adolf Hitler had personally set aside the propaganda ministry a order prohibiting the actress from working in Germany because of suspicion that she has jewish blood. The German Chancellor according to the advices received Here ruled that miss Negri could enter the Reich and act in a new film in which the erstwhile Hollywood Vamp is to be starred. An application made to or. Paul Joseph Goebbels Herr hitlers fiery minister of propaganda and Public enlightenment for permission to make the picture had been refused. The Berlin dispatches said the no. 1 Man of the nazi regime then entered the situation issuing a communique which said a an investigation instituted by the Reich fuehrer established that she is polish and therefore two american producers for whom miss Negri worked Paramount and United artists could not say definitely whether her racial origins were semitic or not when a reporter for the jewish telegraphic Agency queried their new York offices. At the Headquarters of variety theatrical weekly the problem had engaged the attention of Wolfe Kaufman one of he publications outstanding a a detectives. Says she s not jewish. A i really Haven to been Able to find out a confessed Wolfe. A a in be looked into our files and All that but Haven to succeeded in finding the answer. However my impression is that miss Negri probably is not moviegoers were divided into three Camps those who held that the girl who stepped into Theda Baraus pumps was certainly at least partly jewish those who maintained As steadfastly that she was not jewish and those who Hadnot Given the question a thought until the news from Germany it was pointed out in film circles that the employment of miss Negri in the German picture Industry is but another indication of How weak is the present position of the Reich movie makers. In the United states she is rated As a the communique issued by Herr Hitler said the a a accusations brought against miss Negri a Are o attention last wednesday evening members of the staff of the jewish Post visited the new studios of radio station a fam and witnessed a delightful broadcast by Louis Kasoff and his cossacks.
