Tighten, Relax Boycott in Conflicting Orders Affecting German Jews

All firms displaying signs that they are German enterprises will henceforth be controlled, the authorities announced today. Control is necessary, the order declares, to prove that the owners of the enterprises are Aryans and in order to prevent deception of customers by non-Aryans, who display these signs because they are German citizens.

Today, the Voelkischer Beobachter, personal organ of Adolf Hitler, which has up to the present carefully avoided publishing the orders against boycotting the Jews, issued by the Ministries of Labor and Economics, printed the orders issued jointly yesterday by the two Ministries.

At the same time, hundreds of Jewish peddlers will be severely affected by an order issued today by the Berlin municipality instructing the police to restrict street peddling to just a small number. The order was issued in the hope of stimulating the trade of the small shopkeepers and market stall-holders. Stalls in the municipal markets are now being leased only to members of the Nazi party.
