September 6, 1966
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Members of the American Nazi Party and the Ku Klux Klan, some of them carrying swastika emblems, were prevented by National Guardsmen from entering Cicero, Ill., yesterday. They had tried to sneak into the Chicago suburb from the adjoining suburb of Berwyn, during a march by civil rights demonstrators. Both groups had been ordered to keep out of Cicero after they were charged with seeking to inflame an already tense situation between white residents and civil rights advocates.
