Ralph Perry Forbes, 21, of E1 Monte, Calif., paid a $300 fine arising from a September 12 conviction on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Forbes is a henchman of Rockwell in the Nazi movement. Both had been arrested in racial incidents here associated with Nazi incitement against Negroes and Jews.
