Rockwell Fined in Chicago for Conducting Meeting Without Permit

George Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party, today pleaded guilty and was fined $400 for unlawfully soliciting funds and conducting a meeting on park property without a permit.

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.
