Asks That Judgment Be Withheld

A plea to withhold judgment on the Hitler regime in Germany, was made by Dr. Karl Ermisch, Professor of German at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, before several thousand persons of German descent gathered in Como park here, to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the founding of Germantown, Pa., the first German settlement in America.

Professor Alfred W. Gross of Duluth, president of the Minnesota council of the Steuben society, told of the part the Germans have played in the upbuilding of the United States, and challenged any racial group to excel the record of the Germanic peoples in this country.
