Police Act to Quell Nazi Disorders in Vienna

Police swung into action today to quell Nazi-student disorders coincident with reports the Schuschnigg government will increase its military service term by marshalling all Austrian youth in compulsory labor corps, the Havas News Agency said.

In effect, military training will be increased from one year to 18 months, it was said. Austrian university students, participating in ceremonies in memory of university students killed in the World War, battled with a group of Nazis who interrupted a speech by the rector with shouts of “long live Germany! Heil Hitler!”
