Reports of occasional mass-meetings strongly attended, and photographs of youths in Nazi uniform in American cities have enabled Propaganda Minister Goebbels to convince credulous Germans that.

America is rapidly going Nazi. Thus he has enormously strengthened his party's position In Germany. The distance of the United States from Germany, a wide ocean to cross, the fact that the United States is not an immediate military problem as are the continental powers, and the absence of a large concentrated colony of exiles to harass causes Nazi activity in America to differ widely from activity in countries contiguous to Germany. These factors do "not, however, make it any more prepossessing. The American government Is fully aware of most that tias happened and is aware of the Identity of Nazi agents in the country at this moment.

Until the next congress votes laws resulting from the Dick-stein committee's Investigations the government meets the problem, inadequately by declining to "extend" known agents' passport visas.

Alvan MacAuley, head of Packard Motor Car gave away 21,000 more shares of the company's stock, reducing his holdings to 318.245 shares.

Mofit of the gifts were believed prompted by the new and higher gift tax rates that went Into effect January 1, 1936. The higher levies were voted last year by congress at suggestion of President Roosevelt as a step In paring down large fortunes. The gift rates were raised to per cent from per cent on net gifts up to $10,000. They increase progressively to a peak of 52 '-j per cent on gifts of $50,000,000 or more, compared with a previous maximum tax of 33'i per cent. Harry A.

But sent back to Berlin to a little man known as "minister of propaganda and enlightenment," and expertly exploited in his controlled press, "this paper" becomes documentary evidence of an "AMERICAN JEWISH PLOT TO DISMEMBER GERMANY." It enables Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels to revive the myth that the "November1 Revolution" of 1918 which established the German republic was a Jewish plot to ruin the fatherland. It "convicts" American Jews, by name, of being in a conspiracy to bring about the riots, civil war, hunger -and general chaos that would Inevitably accompany an attempt to separate the Rhineland from the rest of Germany.

Fight for Germs Societies. Pyrotechnics such as this glitter above the real Nazi drive in America like rockets above a battle. Down below, the outcome of a struggle begun in 1932 Is still uncertain. Its aim is to capture and control as a political block the approximately 20,000,000 persons who by birth or ancestry have a racial tie with the Third Reich, and who by their penchant for organizing themselves into bunds, vereins, klubs and Teutonic fraternal societies make it easy for the Nazis to get a hand-hold. Well, before Hitler's assumption of power, Nazis from Germany were scurrying over this country, wheedling German-American organizations to accept the Hitler gospel.

It was Inevitable that what was happening in Oermany should reverberate tremendously through the German-American bunds and vereins. After Hitler's accession Nazi agents and agitators poured into German-American circles in New York, Cincinnati, Chicago, St. Louis, and as far west as Los Angeles and San Francisco, commanding adhesion to the Hitler program. Epic battles raged for control of the Germanic bunds. The Hitler agents were for the most part young.

Chaotic upheavels threw the German societies into a succession of uproars. Many of the older men. eager to be at once good Americans and good Germans, stepped out of the societies altogether. Other societies reducing his holdings to 754 shares. X.

4 successfully resisted the Nazi agents. Nazi "Ambassadors." Nazi agents boasting direct authority from Hitler came and went in strange disguises. One of them entered the country as a traveling representative of a German commercial house. Once here, he proclaimed himself to the German organizations as "No. 7 Nazi" with full powers.

In the guise of a Journalist he gained entrance to the congressional press gallery, and even attended the President's press conferences at the White House. After him came a "clergyman." To German-Americans he gave another and more impressive identity; he tried, unsuccessfully, to bully the papers of New York into line with Hitler; and took over a paper by pure intimidation, converting it into a Nazi organ.

guise, to be succeeded by another envoy. American public opinion was somewhat aroused when the agitation took conspicuously visible form in summer camps under Swastika banners. Children giving the Nazi salute, shouting "Heil Hitler" and practicing the difficult goose-step are a strange enough picture in America to catch the most unobservant eye, and German enough to caue a subsidized German language paper to say: "Storm troopers of the future sre being trained in the New York organization as well as in other cities in the so-called Hitler Youth group." An eastern leader of the Nasi movement stated that boys between 9 and 14 marched through a bitter winter night, passing singly through a cemetery In Westchester County. New York, at 3 o'clock in the morning to test their courage. His heart "leaped with Joy" as the boys engaged "in military battle." some of them with blood stream tag from their face and heavy bruises on their arms and legs and as they sang the Horst Wessel song (Nazi official anthem) in the forests of Bear Mountain.
