make it clear that this should not be interpreted to mean they
are not on the alert about Rockwell's activities . .. They point

The delegates were told that
anti-Semitism had increased in
Latin America since last year and
that outbursts of such incidents

had increased since the capture

The delegates also learned of

and articles under the auspices
of scientific conferences to en-
