Merchants Hit Reich Trade in Coast City

German steamers will no longer call at the San Diego port as a result of the boycott of German goods and services, the press of San Diego reports today.

Local manufacturers, whose commodities have formed the basic cargo necessary for bringing the big German ships into the port here, have cancelled their orders with the Hamburg-American and North German Lloyd steamship lines. The German liner Los Angeles was the last German ship to dock at the San Diego port last week.

Stevedores here were approached by anti-Hitler groups with a request that they refuse to discharge cargo from any German ship. It was originally planned to bring one of the big German liners into San Diego every two weeks. This plan, however, will not be carried out now, as the local manufacturers have declared that the appearance of German ships in San Diego was distasteful to them because of the anti-Jewish persecution in Germany.
