(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

"Der Voclkishe Beobachter," the organ of the anti-Semitic Hitler group in Germany, was suspended by an order of the Berlin Chief of Police. The order was issued on the ground that the newspaper carries on inciting propaganda against Dr. Weiss, assistant Chief of Police, who is a Jew.

The newspaper published a special issue in which it attacked what it termed "the Jewish terror of the police." It referred to the recent action of the Berlin police when it dispersed an anti-Semitic mob which was attacking Jewish passersby on Kurfuerstendamm.
