Chicago Public School Authorities Start Probe on Nazi Propaganda

Chicago public school authorities have embarked on an investigation of American Nazi propaganda and recruitment activities in six Chicago high schools and one junior college as a result of evidence furnished by the Jewish War Veterans of the United States.

Superintendent of schools T. J. Lubera ordered the probe after seeing the Nazi propaganda distributed to thousands of teen-aged youths at the schools. The propaganda was disseminated by a group called the “Fighting American Nationalists” which claims to have enrolled hundreds of youths in the Chicago area. The propaganda distributed turned up mainly on the northwest side of Chicago.
