Three men, two of them professed members of the American Nazi Party, were arrested here last night when guests arriving at the Statler-Hilton Hotel for a dinner conducted on behalf of Israel bonds, clashed with five uniformed, swastika-wearing members of the Nazi group. All were later released by the police. The Nazis picketed the hotel, where the Israel Foundation medallion was awarded to Morris B. Zale as a member of the community who has done most in the last year “to advance the economic interests of Israel.” The clash took place when the Nazis displayed placards proclaiming anti-Semitic slogans.
