October 12, 1961
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A West Berlin city ban on the activities of the Federation of National Students, an anti-Semitic group, was upheld today by the Supreme Administrative Court in West Berlin.

The students were caught singing Nazi songs and carrying swastika emblems in a West Berlin forest in January, 1960, during the period of an outbreak of anti-Semitic smearings in West Germany. The city then issued its ban on their activities as “illegal and unconstitutional.” Members of the group have been barred from West Berlin universities.
