Plans for a demonstration on Thursday, when Nazis intend to stage their mass meeting at Madison Square Garden, were formed at a meeting of the National Blue Men at Empire Manor, 70 Thatford avenue, Brooklyn.

Benjamin Lazare; commander, ordered every available man to turn out on the night of the Nazi conclave, and also issued strict orders against violence and engaging in street battles.

Lazare, who was taken ill last Thursday night, is recovering and is supervising preparations for the demonstration.
