Download PDF for this date

An anti-Semitic movement patterned after Nazism and working for the overthrow of the Government has been operating secretly in the United States for at least three years, the Providence final reported today.

The newspaper said that unlike the relatively unimportant lunatic fringe” groups, this one involves some respectable leaders in several states. It operates with elaborate security, the newspaper revealed in its report.

Over the last three years organized leadership has been established in New England, New York, Illinois, Texas, and other states. Members who violate security by openly revealing their anti-Jewish feelings in public are expelled.

The newspaper said it obtained files of secret communications of the group. One communication warned that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was probing the organization. Instructions were issued to try to win over the FBI agent to a program of liquidation of Jews, deportation of non-whites, and a revolution by “White Christian America.”

The investigation showed one leader of the group to be a well-educated and respected young man from Mississippi whose activities and opinions are unknown in his own community. He has been in West Germany and in touch with Nazis there.
