The Prussian Minister of Interior today assured the Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith that the police are thoroughly investigating the identity of those responsible for the anti-Semitic bombing terror and the source of their explosives.

A reward for information leading to the apprehension of the culprits has been offered, the Minister of Interior stated. At the same time, he said that information disclosed by the Central Union reveals that Hitler is personally responsible for the order to strengthen the incitement against the Jews in connection with the elections, and for the denunciation of the circle of Chancellor Franz von Papen and the Nationalist Party as the executors of the Jewish will.

As a result of Hitler’s order the Nazi press is replete with anti-Semitic propaganda, while Nazi posters, leaflets and handbills are distributed from house to house, containing attacks on the Jews.

M. J. Branstein, prominent in San Francisco business and Jewish circles, has been elected a member of the board of directors of Mount Zion Hospital. He succeeds the late Mrs. A. S. Holmes.
