Download PDF for this date

Demands for dissolution of secret Nazi organizations were voiced Friday night by 60,000 persons at a demonstration of the Fatherland Front. A number of Nazis were arrested for throwing stench bombs.

State Secretary Guide Zernatto declared in an address that only the Fatherland Front had the right to inflict punishment and that the Government could not alter its course. The demonstration was organized to counteract Nazi manifestations when the Olympic torch was carried through Vienna last Wednesday.
