“Propaganda” against the Friends of New Germany, emanating purportedly from “Jewish sources” was deplored here by Fritz Gissibl of Chicago, midwest leader, in an address to the local chapter of the organization.

Gissibl assailed Congressman Samuel Dickstein of New York for investigating the “Friends,” insisting that this was a blot on the twenty-eight per cent of Americans who are of German descent. He said that an attempt is being made to link Bruno Richard Hauptmann, Lindbergh kidnapping suspect, to the “Friends.”
