Chimpanzee Convert to Hitler Movement

Download PDF for this date

The Fascist influence is growing in England.

The most recent convert to the movement is the well-known star of the “Monkey’s Tea Party” of two years ago—Jim, the chimpanzee.

According to the News Chronicle, Nazi secret agents visiting the Zoo early in the day before the crowds arrived, converted Jim to Hitlerism. Now Jim, just as any storm trooper, automatically gives the Hitler salute whenever his name is called.
