See End of Street Terrorization of Jews Resulting from New Law

The end of the street terrorization of Jews is seen here today as a result of the decree issued yesterday imposing a heavy fine for the slightest disturbance.

It remains to be seen, however, whether Chancellor von Papen in his capacity of Reich’s Commissar in Prussia will utilize the press decree for checking anti-Semitic propaganda and whether he will limit the Nazi press in this connection, it is pointed out.

Chancellor von Papen in a radio address delivered last night stated that the Parliamentary elections scheduled for July 31st will take place without postponement.

Dr. Albert Grezinski, Socialist president of the Berlin Police Department and his Jewish vice-president, Dr. Bernhard Weiss, were released from the military detention camp at Moabit, when yielding to force they abandoned their offices.

Dr. Grezinski and Dr. Weiss were arrested after they had refused to relinquish office on the ground that the government’s acts were unconstitutional.
