Download PDF for this date

A number of leading anti-Semitic agitators, including officials and ex-officials of such groups as the National States Rights Party, the American Nazi Party, and the Christian Anti-Jewish Party were today indicted by a federal grand jury on United States Government charges of conspiracy to interfere with federal desegregation court orders.

Seven agitators were indicted. Among them were Edward R. Fields, information director of the National States Rights Party; Jesse B. Stoner, known anti-Semitic leader and States Rights Party attorney; James K. Warner, former national secretary of the American Nazi Party; and David A. Stanley, Barney Carmack, Jr., Jack Cash, Ralph Lewandowski, and Gerald Q. Dutton.

Stoner is a one-time Ku Klux Klan organizer, who later formed the “Stoner Anti-Jewish Party,” which became the “Christian Anti-Jewish Party.” Fields was secretary of this militant anti-Semitic group. Dutton was president of the “Knights of the Confederacy.”
