Socialist Deputy Ridicules Anti-semites in German Reichstag

A heated scene was enacted in the Reichstag yesterday when representatives of the Voelkische Partei indulged in a rain of insults upon the Jews.

Replying to this anti-Semitic manifestation, the Socialist Deputy Loebe declared that he did not see any reason for the excitement of the Voelkische Partei against the Jews at a time when they themselves do not refrain from asking help of the Jews when they find it necessary. Loebe revealed the fact that the leaders of the Voelkische group, Graefe and Henning, had asked the head of the political police, Mr. Wiess, a Jews, to protect the idol of the Voelkische Partei, General Ludendorff.
