5 Nazis Beaten While Advertising Rally in Garment Center

Five brown-shirted members of the American National Socialist League who rode through the garment center in a truck today to advertise a Nazi Yorkville meeting with signs and handbills were saved from injury by mounted police and radio car squads who arrived in time to disperse a crowd of 2,500 which had begun to beat them.

When the motor inadvertently stalled, the crowd dragged the Nazis from the truck. There were no serious injuries reported. One Nazi and two of the crowd were arrested.
