See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Adolph Hitler, the Bavarian Fascisti leader, made bold by his victory over the Bavarian Government in having demonstrations of the National Socialists permitted while the country was in a state of martial law, has been making speeches threatening Jews, English and Americans.

With reference to the Jews, he said that no member of that Faith will ever be permitted to touch the National Socialists’ banner.

Addressing Fascisti meetings Herr Hitler declared that unless England and American intervene to stop France’s action in the Ruhr, the "presence of British and Americans in Bavaria will not be tolerated". This threat was very enthusiastically received by Fascisti hordes.

A gang of Nationalists raided the Regina Hotel seeking Jews. The diners were terrorized and it was due to the intercession of the manager that actual violence was prevented.

The charge that Reichsvehr is supporting Hitler’s forces occurs now and again in the liberal German newspapers. The Vorwaerts, Socialist organ, reports that Chancillor Cuno personally ordered the release of 300 Hitler men who had been taken into custody.
