Police Arrest 24 at NPD Rally Fight

BONN (JTA)—Police arrested at
least 24 persons in a mete that
broke out here Sunday during an
election rally of the ultra right-
wing National Democratic Party
(NPD) addressed by party leader
Adolf von Thadden.
Police formed a protective cor-
don around the Beethoven concert
hall where the rally was held.
They dragged out scores of scream-
ing left-wing students who heckled
von Thadden with jeers and shouts
of "seig heil," the Hitlerite salute.
One of those arrested was said to
be an NPD usher.
West German authorities are
cracking down on the use of uni-
formed "ushers" assigned alleged-
ly to keep order at NPD election
rallies. The so-called ushers have
been involved in riots that broke
out at NPD meetings in Frankfurt,
where further rallies have been
banned, and other cities recently.
They have been acused of beating
up hecklers and asaulting passers-


The ministers of interior of the
various German state govern-
ments have announced a ban on
"stewards" who carry sticks and

beat up opponents. They acted
on the requests of local police

chiefs and trade union leaders
following the disorders in Frank-
furt. The mayor of Darmstadt
has banned an NPD election
rally there for fear of violent
The city fathers of Offenbach
banned an NPD meeting that was
to have taken place there Sept. 2.
An NPD spokesman blamed trade
unions for attempting to hamper

cent of the vote in the forthcoming
West German national elections
and "possibly even more."
Von Thadden told a press con-
ference that he would be dis-
appointed if his party polled only
the 5 per cent required to win
seatas in the Bundestag. He said
he would resign if it got less.
According to Von Thadden, the
NPD contains no more ex-Nazis
than any other West German
party. He thought that the riot-
ing which has attended many
NPD election rallies recently
would help rather than hinder
his party's chances.

In reply to questions, he said the
NPD would support Chancelor Kurt
Georg Kiesinger's Christian Demo-
cratic Union "if it had logical pro-
posals that we could support." The
NPD wants, among other things, to
end the prosecution of Nazi war
criminals. The party has also de-
manded the return to Germany of
the Nazi territories lost in World
War II.

3,500 Jews in Athens

The Jewish population of Athens
is approximately 3,500. Few Jews
lived in the city until the beginning
of the 20th Century. The 4,000 Jews
there in 1939 were joined by an ad-
ditional 4,000 refugees from Salon-
ica. Some 5,000 survived the Nazi
occupation of Greece, which ended
in 1944.
