Download PDF for this date

A universal Gentile’s League whose purpose should be to unite the 200,000,000 Slavs, save Russia and create a universal anti-satan federation to protect the Aryan race from Jews and Jewish influence, is the latest adventure of the Russian General, Count Artemyi Ivan Cherip Spiridovich, Russian monarchist and anti-Semitic propagandist, the associate of the famous Brazul.

Count Cherip Spiridovich now makes his appearance in New York with the issuance of a leaflet in Russian under the emblem of the Swastica, with the title “Let’s Save Russia” and the slogan, “Antisatanists of all countries, unite.”

Count Cherip Spiridovich, citing Henry Ford as his authority, states that the Jews are responsible for all the evils of the world and for the collapse of Russia. He states that he has written a book, “The Unknown in History”, which was ready for publication February 8, 1922, but on that date armed men, posing as officers of the United States Government, seized the manuscript. However, he had a copy and he now plans to publish the book.

For the purpose of securing the publication of this book which is, the Count states, a much more ‘important document than the infamous protocols of the elders of Zion, he is engaged in organizing among the Russians of the United States the Universal Gentile’s League. The terms of membership to this league, as announced by the Count are the following: Every Russian who subscribes $1.00 will become a soldier in the Gentile’s League. Those who subscribe $10.00 (their own or funds collected) will be corporals in the league. Anyone who subscribes $100 (his own or collected) will be appointed lieutenant and every one who subscribes $1.000 (his own or collected) will receive the distinguished title of Voyevoda or captain in the league.

It is interesting to note that General Spiridovich is spreading propaganda for the Grand Duke Cyril, the recently self-proclaimed Czar of Russia, printing his picture in the leaflet with the title, Cyril 1, against the picture of Edward Rothschild, whom he calls Edward Rothschild V.

The headquarters of the Universal Gentile’s League of General Count Cherip Spiridovich are given as 15 East 128th Street, New York.
