Hitlerist Storm Troops Back in Uniform: Jews Molested in Berlin Streets: Several Arrests Made: Bavar

A crowd of Nazis, about 150 in number, attacked Jews in the Wilmersdorfer Strasse in Berlin to-day. Several Jews were injured. Police reinforcements soon came up, however, and dispersed the crowd, and made several arrests.

Although the removal of the ban on the Hitlerist storm troops does not enter into effect till to-morrow (Thursday), Nazi troops were already walking about in the streets today wearing their uniforms.

The Governments of the Southern States declare that they will refuse to recognise the Federal Government’s decree and will not allow the Hitlerist storm troops to wear uniforms and parade in their States, despite the decree.

The Bavarian Government, which showed its disapproval of the Hitlerists this week by refusing to transmit the radio address delivered by Deputy Strasser, has informed the Federal Government to this effect, and it is stated that the Governments of Wuertemburg and Baden intend to take similar action.

The Nazis in Munich have in protest against the refusal of the Bavarian Government to transmit Deputy Strasser’s speech smashed the windows in the home of the Bavarian Prime Minister, Dr. Held, by throwing stones.
