Fascists in Czechoslovakia Conduct Anti-semitic Propaganda

(J. T. A. Mail Service)

Anti-Semitism is growing in the Czecho-Slovakian Fascist Party, especially in the smaller communities of Moravia and Bohemia, where proclamations are being circulated calling for an economic boycott against the Jews. The Fascist press is carrying on undisguised anti-Semitic agitation.

At a trial which took place here yesterday before the High Court, it was brought out that a group of Fascists attacked Dr. Vorel of the Ministry of Defence in Sazawa, demanding that he hand over to them the documents in the case against the former Minister of War, General Gayda, the Fascist leader. As Dr. Vorel refused to hand over the documents, they were taken from him by force. The Fascists stated that they had received orders to do this, that revolution had broken out in Prague and that Professor Masaryk had ceased to be President because he had sold himself to the Jews and the Germans and he was now travelling about in Palestine instead of watching Czech interests.
