Download PDF for this date

The Higher School Council today ordered all school libraries to remove all books by Jewish authors, and all books of origin identifiable as Marxist Communist, Pacifist, Masonic, pro-league of Nations, atheist, ultra-mystic, including word by the sect of Scrutators of the Bible, Seventh-Day Adventists, or christian scientists.

Three Jewish businessmen were arrested today. Jellinex, known as “Vienna’s shoe king,” was accused of having debts of 60,000 marks (nominally $24,000), and Abraham Mentor director of a women’s apparel shop, of having “gigantic debts.” M. Teichert, a hatter was charged with fraudulent practices.
