The German government is asked today by the “Juedische Rundschau”, organ of the German Zionist Federation whether it plans to use the new edicts to suppress mass agitation against the Jews on the part of the Nazis and other anti-Semitic parties.

The paper reminds the government of the assurances given to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency on June 5th that the rights of the Jews would not be infringed upon as re-iterated by Secretary of State Planck.

The “Voelkischer Beobachter” today continuing its attacks upon the Jews and the paper utilizes the birthday of Max Lieberman, internationally known German Jewish painter.

The paper declares: “After the thirty-first of July, we will see other names represent German art.” It criticizes the Prussian Minister of Education for greeting Liebermann on his 85th birthday which occurred on July 20th, as well as the German press for hailing him as the King of German art.

No German government will rule without the Nazis after July 31st, declared Deputy Gregor Strasser, Nazi chieftain, at a mass meeting last night.

Adolph Hitler, Nationalist Socialist leader, expects to become Chancellor of Germany within the next few weeks, Deputy Strasser asserted.
