Beer Kegs Only Signs of N.j. Nazi Weekend

Download PDF for this date

The only visible signs left today of yesterday’s influx of 1,000 week-end visitors from New York and Newark to this swastika-decked Nazi encampment, opened recently by the Friends of New Germany for tired Nazis, are several score of beer kegs waiting to be carted away.

Invisible signs included a goodly number of headaches from too much imbibing of the contents of the kegs.

After drinking, singing Nazi songs and listening to some typical Nazi oratory, the Yorkvillites and the Newarkites departed the camp, leaving about one hundred or so campers cleaning up the debris.
