Philadelphia Deports American Nazis from City; Picketed A.d.l. Office

Three members of the American Nazi Party, two of them in uniforms emblazoned with swastika armbands, were escorted by police here to the city limits and ordered to move on, this weekend. They had staged a demonstration in front of the Philadelphia office of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith.

The Nazis had come here by automobile from their headquarters at Arlington, Va. A crowd of about 500 persons gathered near the Nazis as they started picketing the ADL office. Police said they were forced to remove the pickets as the crowd had become hostile and shouted threats against the pickets.
