South Africa Anti-semite is Sentenced for Theft

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The refusal of the Johannesburg Town Council to allow the League of Gentiles to use the City Hall for their propaganda, formed the subject of a case in court.

The propaganda meeting was thinly disguised as a concert. A miner named Lippiatt, frequently out of work, stated that he was chairman of the League’s concert committee and pleaded guilty to a charge of theft from the League of a sum of £18, being deposit on the hall. He was found guilty and given a suspended sentence of three months’ hard labor.
