Download PDF for this date

Hugo de Laehne, the man who as secretary of state in Hungary planned the economic reforms of that country, is visiting here. In an interview he said he strongly disapproved of Hitler’s policies in Germany and declared that the Nazi party is financed by the barons of industry to destroy every vestige of the once powerful German Socialist party.

“But now Hitler has grown over the heads of those who employed him,” declared de Laehne.
