Plans for convening a national conference of all anti-Semitic groups in the U.S. in Hinckley, Ill., June 15-17, were made known here today following a week-end parley of two local anti-Jewish organizations–the National Action League and the Loyal American group. Purpose of the national convention would be to attempt to unite all anti-Semitic and racist groups into a single national body.

Last year Gerald L.K. Smith, notorious pro-Fascist and anti-Semitic figure, called a convention of the “National Christian Party” in St. Louis, but his efforts it getting his party listed on state ballots in last year’s national elections failed. Similarly, a conference of “pro-American Nationalists” was called 1ast year by Andrew B. McAllister and George E. Hornby, with the avowed purpose of setting up a “United Nationalist Front.”
