Download PDF for this date

The District of Columbia prosecutor dropped today disorderly conduct charges against five anti-Nazi hecklers who were arrested at a July 3 rally of George Lincoln Rockwell’s American Nazi party and against one anti-Nazi arrested July 4.

Prosecutor Clark King pointed out that during Rockwell’s trial resulting from the July 3 rally–where a mob fight erupted–and from a July 24 rally, municipal court judge Mildred E. Reeves had said the Nazis caused the violence and trouble. Rockwell was convicted August 30 and has appealed.
