Ex-President Miguel Aleman, now head of the Mexican Government’s Tourist Office, assured a delegation of Jewish leaders here today that he will take “drastic steps” against the further spread of anti-Semitic and other Nazi and hate literature recently spread among tourist resorts in this country.

Floods of such literature, including copies of Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” and of the discredited forgery known as the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” have been distributed recently in resorts and many other places being visited at this time of the year by many tourists from the United States and other countries.
