The Aryan clause will not be modified and will be used in all future legislation for furthering the racial rebirth of the German nation, Dr. Pfunder, state secretary of the Ministry of the Interior, announced today. The Nazi official elaborated the aims of the Ministry for the coming year.

Under the Aryan clause, no one can occupy specified posts, unless he can prove that his ancestors for three, and in certain cases, for four generations, had no Jewish blood in them.
