Moore Upholds Right of Nazis to Congregate

Governor A. Harry Moore, Democratic candidate for United States Senator, today upheld the right of the Friends of New Germany to hold public meetings anywhere.

In a letter responding to protests from Henry Woisin, president of the Union City unit of Nazis, that Mayor Bernard McFeeley of Hoboken had denied his group permission to use a hall there, Governor Moore wrote:

“I have no authority over municipal officials, but there is no reason why you should not be permitted to hold such meetings as you outline in your letter. It seems to me that the friends of Germany have such a right to talk as friends of any other country.”

The Union City cell of the Friends of New Germany last week held a meeting at which Walter Kappe, editor of the Deutsche Zeitung, was the principal speaker, Kappe, editor of the Deutsche Zeitung, was the principal speaker. Kappe in his speech charged that Dickstein and the Congressional investigation committee were trying to “trap him” into admitting that his group was anti-Semitic.
