Download PDF for this date

Two members of a racist group, the Fighting Nationalists, were convicted and fined $100 each for disorderly conduct here, after testimony was heard in court that they lad distributed American Nazi Party literature in two drive-in restaurants near Baltimore.

Richard B. Norton, 27, and John Wolfgang Schrodt, 24, had attempted to post stickers in the two restaurants, antagonizing crowds of teenagers. The latter began throwing paper cups and cartons at Norton and Schrodt, before the men were led away by police.
