S.. cities was' discovered today among twenty tons of Nazi party records. ... A sketch of the swastika flag designed to fly over the United States in 1951, also was found. The discovery was. made in the first sortings of letters and 1/2,000,000 index cards, which contained file's of all membership applications, deaths or expulsions in the Nazi party throughout the world since 1925.' ... The lists proved ibeyond .a doubt that the bund was an instrument of the... Nazi party, _ functioning as an integral part of Its machinery, and leading to the implication that leaders such at Fritz Kuhn may in the future be brought to trial for espionage. ' • The sketch 1 of the flag was on an ordinary •' piece of paper and was drawn In May, 1941, by Germans who visited the United States. The Nazi version had a swastika replacing the field of stars in, the'Ameri- can flag, but retained the stripes. Underneath the sketch was pen- cilled the wild prediction: "1951." It is understood that the list of Bund leaders names will be kept secret for a time. It is estimated that several months will be required to. classify and organize the files and letters, and that they then will be forwarded to the state department a Washington.
