See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

That an anti-Semitic putsch in Vienna was planned to synchronize with the Hitler-Ludendorff putsch in Munich has been disclosed following the arrest here of several of the ringleaders involved in a general Fascisti plot aimed at the Governments of Austria and of Hungary as well as that of Berlin.

A few hours before the Hitler putsch, Hakenkreuzler at a meeting here decided at an anti-Semitic uprising in Vienna. The visit of the Hungarian deputy Ulan was timed accordingly. At this meeting, it is learned, Dr. Suschenwirth, the Chairman of the Vienna Hakenkreuzler, announced that whatever happens to the plot in general, the Jews of Vienna must be expelled.
