In a statement to the J. T. A. representative, the Secretary of Hugo Stinnes declared that the charges that he was financing Hitler and Ludendorff are entirely without foundation.
Stinnes is personally unacquainted with Hitler, the German industrial magnate’s secretary said. Stinnes, he added, had met Ludendorff several weeks ago at Munich but the conversation was non-political.
The charges that Stinnes was financing the Bavarian Fascisti leader and Ludendorff was made Wednesday in the Reichstag by the Communist Deputy Hoellein.
