The brewing cauldron of Nazi activity in this section came to a boil over the week-end, with a series of new revelations anent the efforts of Hudson County pro-Hitlerites to strengthen their ranks.

Foremost among the developments was a report to police by Mrs. Francis Mueller of 318 Brown street, who charges school children from eight to fifteen years of age are being drilled in accordance with Nazi traditions.

The children gather at 7 o’clock on Sunday mornings at the Brown street address, are stampeded into a line of march by uniformed Nazis, taken goose-stepping to a vacant lot at Hudson avenue and Forty-fifth street and then driven in trucks to a point outside the city limits, where they are drilled in military array, Mrs. Mueller declares.

Police verify her charges, despite the emphatic denial of Henry Woisin, head of the Hudson County
