Rep. Martin Dies told a crowded House today that Nazis and Communists have united in this country to form a “fifth column”dedicated to the downfall of democracy. He charged that the German-American Bund was Hitler’s official representatives in the United States, and said he could produce correspondence to prove it.

“It is not generally known,” Dies said, “But I have information that the Communists united with Nazis in Holland in “Trojan Horse” tactics.” Dies statements were received with thunderous applause.
