LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23i--Herman j Schwinn, West Const director of the: j German-American Nazi B u r d , stood ! in the doorw.'.y of Deulsche.s Hnus | Hall last night, watched police-, struggling with n crowd of 2.000 nnti- j Nazi demonstrators who had stoned it, and snid; J "We're not worried. 3f police can't clear the street, we'll do it oursolves," He gestured to.a group of husky uniformed bund members standing ! inside the hull, his own "strong-arm" squad. He; did not cull upon them, however, because, after a riotous hnlf hour, police succeeded in quelling the attackers, who had thrown first a barrage of ovur-ripe eggs and tomatoes, then their fusillade of rocks, the latter shattering windows and, Schwinn said, injuring several bund j members within the hull. ; The attack, which police s;iid was 1 led by members of tho Socialist Workers' party nnd the Young People's Socialist League, begem us bund members arrived at the restuurar.t- hall for a Washington's Birthday party. The American-Nazis and their womenfolk were pummelcd with the rotten eggs and vegetables. When some 300 persons h;id ducked and run into the building, the hail oC rocks began. Many guests left, when police appeared, and sporadic street fighting broke out, presumably between departing bund members and the attackers. It was at this point that Schwinn appeared in the doorway and expressed confidence in the ability of his "slrong-arm u squads to handle the situation, should police fail. When the mob had been dispersed, the bund director said that only two of those injured by stones were hurt even ^ain^ully. These, he said, were 1 men who had been hit in the fore- ' head. j Police offered an escort to any guests who desired it and several ; accepted on leaving. They were; placed in police automobiles escorted by motorcycles, whisked out ot the district where several stragglers of the crowd lingered past midnight. No arrests were made but during the height of the struggle police collared an unusually vociferous rioter here or there and marched him out of the crowd. Several clubs were found in the street this morning, and the entrance of the bund halt was piled high with spoiled vegetables. BULLETIN" Special lo Hie Courier.

SOMERSET, Feb. 23.--The defense opened today in an attempt to prove "by witnesses and silent witnesses" that three men accused of murdering 53-year-old Charles Kohut last Hay 1' at Bens Creek, near Johnstown, could not have done so. Immediately after the Slate rested its case last yesterday, Chief Defense \ Counsel W. Curtis Truxcll declared that none of the three defendants \vi\s near the scene of the murder : and that a "horrible mistake" was being made in accusing them. A few hours earliei'j however, three witnesses for the prosecution testified i "positively" that the three--Tony j Tisack, Mike Tisack and Vincent Bovinia, all of Kelso, near Johnstown --were the men who entered the home of Mrs. Catherine Dadura and shot Kohut to death. It was maintained that one of the three, Tony Tisack, was unmasked in a scuffle that followed the killing. Truxell said in an address to the jury that the defense would show, through time records taken from Lockport, N. Y.. that on May 18, the murder night, Tony Tisack worked in an industrial plant until 7:16 P. M. FROSTED Try This Economy Dinner for 4 1 !b. HADDOCK or MACKEREL FILLET 1 box (14 oz.)
