See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

There are clear indications that Fascism is spreading to Upper Silesia anti-Jewish and anti Republican tendencies having become so pronounced as to cause misgivings in Government circles.

Armed bands are said to be forming along the lines of Hittler’s forces in Bavaria. Colisions between these forces and the authorities have become frequent. Persons in position to know trace this development to the influence of the Bavarian Chauvenists and anti-Semities.
