The question whether Henry Ford has contributed to the support of the anti-Semitic propaganda of the Bavarian Fascisti will play a prominent part in the trial of the damage suit of Adolph Hitler, leader of the Bavarian Fascisti against Stephen Grossman, a Bavarian newspaper publisher.

Grossman charged in his paper that Hitler had been largely financed by foreign interests, and had received in particular much assistance from Henry Ford.

The prominent Social Democrat spokesman, Auer, is expected to testify in support of the charges.

Christian Weber, a leading Fascisti and Hitler follower, admits that the Fascisti had received much support from America, but denies that Ford was one of the contributors.
