The German consul here was subjected to a bitter verbal attack by P. Allen Rickles, head of the Anti-Defamation League in the Northwest division of B’nai B’rith. The Reich representative, who is the author of a biographical work dealing with George Washington, was said to be injecting Nazi propaganda into his literary work.
