Six hundred German youths residing in Southwest Africa and studying in Germany are organizing a “Southwest African Group” to protect their “national and racial interests” and prevent their being “absorbed by a foreign people,” the German News Agency announced tonight, according to the Havas News Agency.

The agency emphasized that creation of the new organization coincided with the recent ban issued by the Union of South Africa against organized political or public activity by non-Britons. The aim of the organization will be to extend its activities to all Southwest Africans residing in Germany and impress upon the residents of the former German African colony their duty toward the Reich, the agency said.
