Bobbed Hair, Jazz, Split Austrian Nationalists

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Bobbed hair and jazz threaten to split the anti-Semitic Hakenkreuzler ranks here. Two factions within the Hakenkreuzler clashed at a meeting over the propriety of bobbed hair, abbreviated skirts and American jazz among the nationalist youth who they argued are deserting puritanical anti-Semitism.

The faction headed by Richls proposed modernizing anti-Semitism and fighting tactics which are now termed ridiculous.
