Bavarians Act to Quit Group

mean the beginning of the end for the Conference.

As Froehlich himself expressed it, the Conference at present is in “a time of distress.” Included among its troubles is a suit against it for $100,000 by the German Theatre, which charges that financial support which the Conference promised it never materialized. The Friends of New Germany are named as joint defendant in the action.

Froehlich said Friday that proposed withdrawal of the Bavarian Societies may have something to do with this dispute. He said he knew of no other probable reason for the group’s stand.

Well-informed observers, however, were of the opinion that the solid, conservative element which for the most part comprises the United Bavarian Societies has become disgusted with the Hitlerite tactics of the Conference and has decided to keep its skirts clean of what has developed into an unsavory situation.
