Smuts Invokes Riot Act to Prevent Nazi Meet in South Africa

General Jan Smuts, Minister of Justice, yesterday invoked the Riotous Assemblies Act to prohibit a meeting of the Greyshirts, the South African Nazi organization, at Paarl.

General Smuts in recent months frequently #enounced the Nazi movement as alien to South African soil and warned that he would exert the powers of his office to prevent unlawful activities by Nazis.
