War Veterans to Press Request That Rockwell Register As Foreign Agent

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish War Veterans indicated today that they would take further measures to have the United States Department of Justice require George Lincoln Rockwell to register as a foreign agent.

The patriotic organization had called on the Department for such action on the grounds that Rockwell’s membership in the “World Union of National Socialists” made him a foreign agent. Further steps were due following the announcement that Colin Jordan, the British head of that organization, had designated Rockwell as his replacement while he served out a nine-month prison sentence for violation of the British Public Order Act. Rockwell presumably would “direct” the world movement from the head-quarters of his party in Arlington, Va.
