Vienna (Oct. 28)
The American Minister to Austria, G. B. Stockton, was attacked yesterday by the Nazi organ, “Freiheit,” for his alleged insult to the Austrian nation in behalf of “a few provocating American students who defended themselves and boxed their Nazi attackers.”
Such a demarche would have cost a foreign diplomat dearly, says the paper, offering as an example an insult to France.
The Nazi press rejects the appeal for peace in the University issued by the Archbishop, urging that it is better to continue the disturbances than to permit the “Jewification” of their studies.
Professor Abel, rector of the University, and the former rector, Gleichsbach, appealed to a mass meeting of German students today to compete with students of foreign races for more study and not for more persecution.
