Alexander Raven Thompson, 36, one of Sir Oswald Mosley’s chief lieutenants in his Fascist movement, was yesterday arraigned in Old Street Police Court on charges of using insulting words and behavior in the course of an anti-Jewish speech at Victoria Park Friday night. Thompson was released on $50 bail pending a hearing.

The Fascist leader had presided at a rally at Victoria Park which resulted in clashes after Jews had been vehemently assailed.
