Jackie Coogan, marvel of the American screen, is none other than Jacob Cohen, who calls himself Coogan, is the opinion of the Austrian Hakenkreutzler, the anti-Semitic organization, whose members parade under the emblem of the Swastika. Today, when Jackie Coogan was leaving Vienna, a mob of Hakenkreutzler demonstrated before the office of the Bundeskunzler, demanding the expulsion from Austria of the Jewish boy, Jacob Cohen. The police were called to disperse the mob.
