Nordic Craze Growing, Declares Arthur Brisbane

A scientific association of German “racialists” proposes a plan for a new State into which only those who are “purely Nordic” will be admitted, it was learned today.

These scientists declare that a blood test would enable one to distinguish between the “purely Nordic” and the mixed breeds.

Mr. Arthur Brisbane, in commenting upon the plan in the “New York American,” terms it “The Nordic Craze” and states:

“That new Nordic State, by the way, would exclude the founder of Christianity, whose mother was a Jewess. He, certainly, was not “purely Nordic.”
