ganization has, as a body, taken a different stand.

An excerpt from the issue of August 19, 1934, translated by a teacher of German in the city schools who opposed the publication’s circulation by the Board of Education, has been presented to Dr. Campbell. Before making any statement, Dr. Campbell said he was desirous of checking the translation with the original text. The translation reads as follows:

“And there he stands, the Chancellor Adolf Hitler. His face, powerful and yet so lovable, smiles in a friendly manner. He salutes in every direction, and the rejoicing, the cries of ‘Heil’ resound for minutes at a time over the Wilhelmplatz….

“All faces beam with joy. The foreigner notes with surprise how many, even men, have tears in their eyes. When the window is again closed, the crowd becomes calm. Satisfied and happy, all set out for home, to make room for others who likewise want to see him (Hitler). So it goes, all day and into the night. Then the foreigner also goes home, sunk in thought.”
