National Guardsmen Ordered to Shun ‘racial Causes’

NATIONAL GUARDSMEN WERE FORBIDDEN TODAY BY GOVERNOR LEHMAN “TO FURTHER OR PROMOTE ANY SO-CALLED NATIONALISTIC GROUP OR NON-AMERICAN POLITICAL OR RACIAL CAUSE.”

THE ORDER WAS ISSUED IN A LETTER TO ADJUTANT GENERAL WALTER G. ROBINSON IN A LETTER AFTER IT WAS DISCLOSED THAT UNIFORMED OFFICERS AND ENLISTED MEN OF THE NEW YORK NATIONAL GUARD HAD ATTENDED A BALL GIVEN BY A RUSSIAN ANTI-SOVIET NEWSPAPER AT WHICH UNIFORMED NAZIS WERE ALSO REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN PRESENT.
