Press Leased Wire) NURNBERG, Germany, Sept. S.— Adolf .Hitler, like a Caesar of old, dramatically entered this city of 800,000 Nazlu today. With Nurnberg plastered with posters proclaiming Bolshevism to be "World Enemy No. ,1," the Relche- fuehrer arrived late In the afternoon lor the fourth annual party conven/ lion. • Hours prior to' his*'arrival, the three-mile road from the airport to the rather modest hotel "Deutecher Hof" had been lined with expectant throngs. Their enthusiasm know no bounds when Der Fuehrer's open car passed slowly by with Hitler, bareheaded and upright, again and again giving the Nazi salute. He wore tho traditional brown shirt of his movement, Meanwhile, Otto Dietrich, Hitler's press chief, addressed newspaper correspondents and extolled the Nazi form of government as the "most modern democracy in history." Entering Nurnberg Der Fuehrer was visible throughout the lino of march. Hitler's car was but one of b a series. Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels. General*Hermann Wllhelm Goerlng. Rudolf Hess, Ilelnrlch Hlmmlcr ami other prominent Nazis all formed part, of tho procession of entry. Together they went to the Deuischer Hof. This hotel is the place where Hitler lived in tho days when his movement was tho butt of official jokes and when a hotel owner risked having his windows smashed if he harbored the "terrible" Nazis. For reoHona of gratitude, therefore, Der Fuehrer continues to stay at tho DeutHcher Hof whenever ho. comes to Nurnberg. For half an j hour following tin* Nazi chloftaln'tt arrival In the city, the bells of all of Numberg's churches pealed.
