Download PDF for this date

The Wisconsin Central Federation of German Societies unequivocally rejected the swastika as the emblem to be displayed at the “German Day” celebration here on July 27 and 28. Twenty-seven member organizations voted against the swastika and fourteen for it.

By a vote of fifty-three to nineteen, Nazi delegates were ejected from a tumultous meeting called to count the votes.
