Warning that Hitler intends to use ant-Semitism, ant-foreignism and other prejudices to conquer the United States, Demaree Bess, foreign correspondent, in an article from Paris in the Saturday Evening Post urges a “counter revolution” based on “fair play and racial equality and cooperation between all groups and classes.”

“Hitler knows,” Bess writes, “that if National Socialism is ever to capture America it will have to depend upon native Americans with un-American ideas. The Nazi dictator knows that his true allies are American demagogues who play upon such prejudices as anti-foreignism and anti-Semitism.”
