Hakenkreuzlers on Way to Conference Create Disturrances

Three hundred delegates to the anti-Semitic conference of Hakenkreuzlers, which is now taking place in Salzburg, created, last Saturday, a disturbance at the Western Railway Station by insulting Jewish travellers.

They decorated the cars with swastikas, the anti-Semitic emblem. Upon the request of the Socialists the railway authorities separated the cars in which the Hakenkreuzlers were traveling from the rest of the train. This was resented by the Hakenkreuzlers, who would thus be prevented from annoying the Jewish passengers, and several fights took place between them and the police. They were, however, finally removed.
