Download PDF for this date

Before a crowd of 50,000 spectators including 10,000 Nazis, who had made the trip from Germany to witness the game, a British team shut out a German team 3-0 in a soccer match at the Tottenham grounds.

The game, which had aroused indignant protests in labor and anti-Nazi circles, passed off quietly. Heavy police guards which were deployed about the stadium prevented would-be demonstrators from reaching the grounds.

Five anti-Nazis were arrested.
