U. S. Gets Glimpse of Nazi Tyranny Possibly it is Imu, :is visitors arc admired, Hint ill-treatment and brutality toward Jews and radicals in Gcr- nifiny liavo been abateil. It is hard to learn thu truth, us news reports from dictalor-ridden couiilric.-i rre<intntly leave some details to imagination. The best tiling to juilirc the by is wbat is actually seen. And New York the other day ^ot its chance to judge. A German luxury liner was about to sail. Hundreds of visitors were abonrd. Suddenly n dozen young women threw aside cloaks,' revealing sweaters blazoned with anti-Nay.! slogans. They handculVed themselves to the ship's rail, and chanted slogans demanding an end to "Nn/.i intci'fcrcncc in Spain." Other agitators, who had come aboard in the guise of visitors, shouted a like defiance. H was a foolhardy llniif; to do, an Jm'ldltnj; tiling. I'topic wiio would attempt it could" scarcely be surprised if they were kicked off the ship with little ceremony, perhaps even, somewhat roughly. But what happened, according to reliable New York reporters and others who happened to be abuard was so sickening and such a revelation of ungovernable hatred as to be worth remembering. Read this account from an eye-witness: . "Four .sailors were driving n little man before them with toe and list when a husky man in white uniform, apparently a ship's officer, leaped Tor- ward, wrenched the little man's right \\rist up between his shoulders. He grabbed the hand in a cunning wrestler's hold mid bent it down in ;i tense curve of agony. "They lifted the little man and threw him through the door. Mis head cracked against the post a'ml they lifted him again—sent him spinning down Ihc slair.s." The girl demonstrators were brutally wrenched loose from the rain and beaten, not only by sailors, but 'apparently by officers also. In short, it was official. Americans who stood by and protested were sneeringly threatened with the same treatment, and at least one was arrested with Hlie demonstrators. Possibly this exhibition, right in New York harbor, of Nazi reaction to BLYTJ1EV1LLE (ARK.)

True, (lie iij;it:itor.s were (rtil of order, in an c.spi'cwlly irritating manner, and "they asked for it." Hut llicy "got it" with a peculiar ferocity and sadistic fury that reveals all too wee.1 what happens when orderly democratic government is replaced by the hatreds of class and radical warfare. iMany Americans laughed off Sinclair Lewis' "It Ciui't Happen Hero," as an impossible nightmare.

I3ob rushed forward, grabbing Steve's half-raised arm. "Good Lord, Steve! Hang onto yourself.! Toby didn't mean anything." Slowly Lynch got lo his feet, parily angered and partly frightened. "What's the idea, Steve? Looks to me as if three fellows ought lo be able to net inlo a discussion without a brawl." "I didn't mind your generalities," mentioned Sieve icily. "But when you applied them to Judith and me, you were going a little too far." "I didn't mean anything," said Toby, slill rubbing his cheek. Bob looked at Steve Fowler. ' There you arc. Toby's apologized for a loose tongue. Looks lo me like you'd betlcr apologize for a loose temper, Sieve.' There was a moment of tense :ilcnce; and then, slowly, Steve raid, "All right.

"I'm, not starting anything, Steve. I've a right lo defend my position, haven't I?" Bent grinned up at the other. "Even al the risk o! a poke in the nose?" Despite himself. Steve had to smile.

The three men were ill al ease, curiously afraid thai somehow the Iwo girls iniglil recognize that something had gone wrong in (licii- absence. They were like small boys caught in suspicious proximity to the jam closet. But if. Judith and Virginia dolcclcd anything amiss, Ihcy gave no sign of it.

Nevertheless, the ghost of a quarrel hung over the modest apartment, and (he parly soon sagged. Ten o'clock struck rUeU off on Judith's little clock—and then 11.
