Leader of Austrian Heimwehr Rising Acquitted

The Heinwehr leader, Dr. Pfrimer, and his colleagues in the Heimwehr attempt in Styria to overthrow the Government and establish a dictatorship, have been acquitted.

The Government has prohibited all manifestations and meetings until the beginning of the new year, as a precautionary measure, but great uneasiness prevails in the country. The Social Democrats are calling on their followers to organise to defend the Republic against Fascism.
