Download PDF for this date

Establishment of the Known as “Friends of the Iron Guards,” with nationalist and anti-Semitic aims, was announced here today.

The new group will be composed of Government officials, university professors, members of the aristocracy, businessmen and others who for various reasons were unable to become members of the Iron Guard, militant organization which recently threatened King Carol and his statesmen with death if they aligned themselves with Soviet Russia.

The program of the “Friends” restricts membership to Christians and undertakes to assist the Iron Guard by subsidies and moral encouragement.

Headquarters of the Iron Guard said in a statement on its new affiliate that “thanks to this association we shall know those who have been our friends and those who have been our enemies.”
