A bitter attack against Felix M. Warburg, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Dr. S. Parkes. Cadman and other leaders of the committee to aid. Christian German refugees was launched here today by Die Deutsche Wochenschau, leading Nazi paper, which alleged that “agitators finding that Jewish atrocity stories have been exploded are now campaigning for the poor, persecuted Catholics and Protestants.”

The financial drive against Germany, the Nazi paper declared, was opened by Mr. Warburg with the gift of $1,000,000, and the Jewish bankers, Lehman, Seligman and Lewisohn, are financing the campaign. According to the Wochenschau, this financial campaign is closely tied up with the work of Dr. Harry F. Ward, liberal Protestant minister, who together with Rabbi Sidney Goldstein of the Free Synagogue in New York is aiding the work of the “boycott leader, Untermyer,”

The Nazi paper solemnly declared that the “gigantic” sums of money raised in the United States are devoted to publishing in English the sermons of Cardinal Faulhaber of Munich, with a preface by Rabbi Solomon S. Thomas Mann, noted German writer, at his recent visit to the United States, and paying Claus Mann, his son, for lecturing in Scandinavian and English against Germany. The paper also accused alleged Catholic news agencies of “working hand in hand with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in reporting new incidents, arrests and attacks.”
