The “Astra”, which was recently organized as a military branch of the “Hakenkreuzler” has been ordered disbanded by the government forbidding its meetings and practices.

The police appear lately to have taken a stern attitude towards the anti-Semitic agitators, and it is believed that occurrences similar to the recent anti-Jewish riots on the streets and at meetings will not be repeated.

An order from the government prohibiting employees of the state to wear emblems of anti-Semitic organizations is anticipated.

The anti-Semitic German Nationalist party is about to sever relations with the “Nationalist-Socialists”, the Tagenzeitung” and “Abendzeitung” representing now the former and not the Nationalist-Socialists, which announces the early publication of an organ of its own.
