Rockwell Suggests Use
of Rifles in Fight Against
Minorities; Nazis Busy
FREDERICKSBURG, Va., (JTA)
—_ American Nazi Leader George
Lincoln Rockwell, campaigning for
election as governor of Virginia,
held a rifle in the air on Sept. 16
and told an audience : "All of you
ought to own one of these." He in-
dicated that such weapons could
be used against minority groups.
Rockwell is running for governor
under the banner of the so-called
"White Conservative Party." He
attacked Virginia's two most re-

Speaking at a press conference,
Arcand said that George Rockwell,

a venal agitator who, to my own

Leon Perez, vice president of the

report to the American Section of
the World Jewish Congress in New
York. The DAIA is an affiliate of
the World Jewish Congress.
Dr. Perez warned that social and
economic problems of Latin Amer'
ica might lead to local explosive
situations which, in turn, would
have their effect on the respective
Jewish communities. He said his
organization was particularly con-
cerned with the future of its youth.
