Labor and Material Shortage Held Leading to Reich Collapse

Download PDF for this date

“The materials and labor shortage in Germany must lead to economic collapse of the Reich Government,” the Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi league declared in a statement today. The direct result of this shortage, which this week for the first time was admitted by German authorities, will be a steady decrease of importations because of the resultant poorer products, it was said.

The powerful democracies, likely opponents in any war with Nazi Germany, have been most instrumental in aiding her to rearm, according to a survey released today by Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum, chairman of the Joint Boycott Council. He declared that Germany had imported the preponderance of the raw materials necessary for her armament machine from those countries which must some day carry the brunt of the Nazi attack.
