See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Two national German groups pledging to uphold the Republic today opened a vigorous campaign against Adolph Hitler and his brown-shirted Fascists in view of the growing danger of Hitlerite supremacy. Jewish leaders expressed great satisfaction with this news. The two organizations that have opened war on the Nazis with methods similar to those used by the Nazis are the youth organization of the Republican Reichsbanner and the Deutschland-Bund.

In every town and village in Germany the youth groups of the Reichsbanner are distributing pamphlets and posters aimed at counteracting the Hitlerite propaganda. Speakers are being sent to every Nazis meeting with a demand for freedom of speech and if this request is not granted these meetings will be broken up. The Reichsbanner groups are also planning street meetings throughout the country.

The Deutschland-Bund, including in its membership many prominent people, is planning a monster mass meeting in the Sport Palace at which former National Socialist leaders will reveal the propaganda methods of the Hitlerites.
