Schuschnigg Acts to Take in Nazis

cellor Engelbert Dollfuss, slain by the Nazis, includes the Heimwehr, headed by Prince von Starhemberg; the Catholic storm troops, headed by Chancellor Schuschnigg, and the Christian Socialist party. All three groups have an anti-Semitic program and are known to be extremely anti-Jewish, save that they desire to carry out the Hitler program without any bloodshed. The ruling coalition in Austria today favors a “cold pogrom” and the quiet elimination of the Jews from all public and professional posts.
