The astounding assertion that “Bolshevik gold” has been flowing freely into the coffers of the leaders of the anti-Semitic movement in Germany, is made by Arnold Rechberg, a student of political affairs with pronounced leaning toward the Right. Herr Rechberg says that he has abundant proof in support of his assertion, although he is precluded from giving its source.

Other theories as to the source of nationalist and reactionary support are not wanting. Thus the POST of Munich and the BERLINER TAGEBLATT assert they believe the French are financing the National Socialist movement. They say this has been “proven”. Further “evidence” is supplied by the Munich correspondent of the TAGEBLATT, who reports the French Ambassador confirmed in a private conversation, that he sympathised with the aims of the nationalists.

It is reported here that one of the leaders of Hittler’s storm troope has been arrested. A large sum of money in American dollars and French francs is said to have been found on his person. It is declared he received the money from a French source.
