See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Nazis here last night threatened to stage a monster demonstration of protest if the police did not immediately release the Nazis arrested as suspects in connection with the bombing of Jewish stores in an effort to make effective their boycott campaign against Jewish business.

The Nazis also demand the withdrawal of police supervision of the Nazi districts and protest against the raid of Nazi headquarters yesterday when nine Nazis were taken into custody and evidence found that the tear gas bombs exploded in Jewish department stores on Saturday were of German or secret Austrian manufacture.

The police yesterday confiscated special Nazi leaflets ridiculing the police and threatening them with reprisals for their arrests of Nazis. The police are ridiculed for having arrested the fire stoker of the Nazi Brown House, suspecting him of using corpses of Jews to make his fire and of secreting the bodies of murdered Jews in the cellar of the Brown House.

Anti-Semitic leaflets were again distributed through the streets of Vienna yesterday. A number of the Nazis arrested in connection with the boycott campaign were released.
