Laughing at nazis by Daniel l. Schorr Hitler ism in America Isnit a menace just now its a joke. Torn with internal dissension broken up into unimportant squabbling factions the once solid friends of new Germany is but a Shadow of its former self. There is not one nazi organization in America that could Lead an anti semitic Campaign. The Hitler Ite organizations which have weakened As they have multiplied Are at present too occupied in fighting each other to give a thought to anti semitism. The German americans by and Large have become disgusted with nazi politics in America. For a while t seemed that nazism was becoming dangerously attractive to the German americans Here. But that danger has passed for the moment at least. The total membership of the my raid nazi organization that have blossomed Forth from the original Bud would not equal the members in of the friends of new Germany in its Halcyon Days. The disintegration of nazism in America was Long in coming but it came with a bang. A series of events followed in Quick succession and when they ended there was no Hitler ism to speak of. Tho latest developments is the organization of a new anti jewish Boycott organization the Deutscher Kon sum verb and which is going into Active Competition with the Dawa Nee the exclusive anti jewish economic organization in America. Jews can laugh for the near future we can predict some desultory warfare Between the organizations. The jews can stand in the Side lines and laugh. The div As it is commonly known is backed by the decimated remnants of the friends of new Germany. The reason for the new organization is that the Dawa Deutsch Amer Kanischer Wirt schafts aus Schuss was veering away from the a a friends a toward the american National socialist league. And what is the National socialist league it is a rebel Ney York outfit that split away from the a a friends in an insurrection led by Anton Haegele a Shell shocked Young German. The situation is funny the densest German american Community is in new York but the friends of new Germany a National organization has no following in that City. For the new York local has formed a new organization. And How they Battle this reporter has seen one group storm the meeting of the other. He has seen chairs and bottles flying through the air and police riot squads breaking into restore order. He has witnessed some of the new pogroms where Only nazis no jews were Hurt. They fight in court too. The Haegele outfit besieged the printing Plant of the Deutsche Beo Zachter nazi periodical. The a a friends tried to regain control through a court injunction. In court the rival nazi factions regaled reporters and observers by charging each other with the grossest corruption misrepresentation and embezzlement. And while All this goes on the rank and file of sincere pro nazis and there were some become disillusioned and turned anti nazi. They realized that their leaders Are not personal representatives of Hitler on Earth but grasping politicians eager to enhance their own prestige a if not their pocketbooks. There is Louis Zahne who Heads the German american Independent league one of the numerous nazi factions. We interviewed him with the specific purpose of verifying his own reported political aspirations. He denied any such ambitions and protested that he was Only a sincere German american. We asked him if he intended to run for office in the Yorkville German Section of new York. He said no. We dared him to give us that in writing. A surely id give it to you in writing a he replied. A some other time we took out pen and paper and began writing out a statement. He suddenly arose and walked out of the office. A some other time a he called Over his shoulder a i have an important engagement a Strong clique ruled supreme among the american Hitler ites. There was never a sign of revolt in those Days. Men like Fritz Gissibl water Kappe and Heinz Spanknebel inspired respect among germans n the United states. Once a person became a member of the friends in those Days he did not dare Start a revolt against the leadership for Here was also one effective threat reprisal against relatives in Germany. For it was common knowledge that the nazi Here were working hand in hand with nazi party in Germany. During 1935, dissension behind the scenes began to grow. It burst Forth last november after the nazis were made a laughing Stock through the conviction of William l. Mclaughlin managing editor of the Deutsche Zeitung on charges of i oel preferred by former magistrate Joseph Goldstein. Mclaughlin begged off his one year pail term by printing an editorial lavishly praising the jewish people a something unheard of in the Zeitung previously a vitriolic anti semitic Sheet. This editorial killed the paper. Only two issues came out afterwards. Another publications the Deutscher took its place but the scandal ranked in the minds of some and presently the first organized revolt burst Forth when Haegele and the new York chapter of the friends seceded from the organization forming the National socialist league. Then came the Beo Zachter siege incident when the Haegele outfit took Possession of the paper by physical Force. They managed to retain control through a technicality. By a piece of Luck Hagege had happened to be the one to sign the lease in behalf of the friends. This made him Legal owner and the supreme court of new York recently recognized that right. Next the Dwa which had been organized by the a a friends to enlist German americans in a Campaign to Boycott jewish business threw off the Parent organizations control with a manifesto roundly berating the leadership of or. Hubert Schnuch president of the no government help the names of the various nazi organizations Are High sounding but their membership and importance Are ridiculously Small. There was Little doubt about the fact that the German government was financing nazism Here in its Early Days but it dare do that now. It could not favor one faction Over the others. It had been reported that the German government or at least the German nazi party financed Das Neue deutschland the publication to be issued Here. But there Are two pub actions the Beo Zachter under Hae Geless control and Der Deutscher Weckauf owned by the friends of new Germany. To illustrate the rivalry Between the organizations the name of the Werk Ruf was recently changed to Weckauf und Beo Zachter to make it appear that it had included the other publication. A further indication of disintegration is the attempt now being made by the friends of new Germany to organize a league of German societies in Competition with the United German societies once a powerful federation. A year ago we could attend a nazi meeting in Yorkville and see a Large and enthusiastic crowd jeer and Hoot each time a speaker attacked the jews. The other night we attended a nazi meeting. The attendance was laughably Small. Where speakers once attacked Samuel untermyer and rabbi Stephen s. Wise they now attacked rival nazi leaders. That is Why we say that today Hitler ism in America is not a menace not the German Brand of Hitler ism at any rate. The seeds of nazism Are shr Veling up in american crowd attends annual Beth Al picnic More than one thousand persons attended the annual Beth Al Zedeck congregation picnic held last sunday in Columbia Park. The attendance at the Outing passed by far the attendance at affairs of previous years and it is said that this event was the greatest Ever launched by Indianapolis jewry.

At a meeting of the Board of directors of Beth Al Zedeck congregation monday night plans were discussed for a banquet for the picnic committees it to be held soon. Of hebrew required for admission to Palestine Warsaw Sta a jews who wish to emigrate from Poland to Palestine will not receive immigration certificates from the jewish Agency unless they first master the hebrew language it was announced Here by Isaac Gruenbaum head of the immigration department of the jewish Agency. Or. Gruenbaum now on a visit Here emphasized that this restriction will enter into Force in april of 1936. A we do not intend to close the doors of Palestine. We insist however that prospective immigrants should be Best fitted for life in the country. Knowledge of the hebrew language is one of the major requirements a or. Gruenbaum said. The announcement by or. Gruenbaum is in line with a decision adopted recently by the executive of the jewish Agency in Palestine to give preference in granting immigration certificates to those who speak hebrew. Beginning next year every candidate for an immigration certificate to Poland will have to pass a special examination in the Palestine offices in Poland As Well As in other countries to prove sufficient knowledge of hebrew before the immigration certificate will be granted. Gruenbaum addressing a zionist gathering Here condemned the jewish illegal immigration into Palestine. He pointed out that most of those who enter Palestine illegally Are undesirable elements. He also emphasized that the jewish Agency would have received More certificates from the Palestine government if there were no illegal immigration. Of badges to designate paddlers in Belgium Brussels Sta a special badges were introduced this week by the belgian authorities for Market paddlers of foreign citizenship ninety per cent of whom Are jews. The order issued provides that those paddlers who Are not belgian citizens must display red emblems in distinction to the Blue badges which the belgian citizens will display. This distinction is causing grave consternation among the jewish paddlers who Are chiefly subjects of Poland and other East european countries. A Campaign against permitting foreign jews to Trade in Belgium has been going on for several years. The government however paid Little attention to this disregard British policy unsuccessful immigrant Farmers acquire 12,000 acres London Sta a much interest has been aroused Here by a report from famagusta in the morning Post that according to information obtained from the land registry office land held by jews in Cyprus now amounts to some 12,000 acres presenting an investment of about l72.000 $360,000. About half of this land according o the morning Post was taken Over by new companies and immigrants rom unsuccessful jewish families.

Orange growing land usually Sells for c30 $150 per acer in Cyprus. Against Imra igra it ion what makes these figures is that Only recently the new Sec teary for the colonies in his first Quot parliamentary utterance on Palestine and the near East came out against jewish immigration int Cyprus declaring that the governments policy s to safeguard the livelihood of the inhabitants of the Island which would be prejudiced by allowing immigrants to enter freely into the Island. The morning Post predicts that final figures for the Export of Cyprus Jaffa oranges will be considerably below last seasons record partly due to the smallness of the crop.
