Head of German Actors Union Appeals to Public to Combat Nazi Agitaion Against Jews

ducts a concert over the radio lasting two and one half hours, it would mean that we should not be able to have another Jew broadcasting for several weeks and that would result in an intolerable state of affairs. Jewish artists could not be barred in this fashion.

Moreover, said Dr. Duske, the religion of an artist can not always be apparent from his name, and there was no intention of demanding affidavits from every performer to prove that he did not adhere to a certain religion.

Asserting that he is not a member of any party or group, Dr. Duske stated his task will be to arrange Berlin radio programs according to merit without asking questions concerning religious or political beliefs.

Jews, he asserted, will continue to be employed under the new regime.
