NoziParty'sMidavest Leader,Son of Jese„ May Face _Purge
CHICAGO — Leaders of the
American Nazi Party have been
considering purging Frank Collin,
Midwest "coordinator" for the
party. His father is Jewish. The
Jewish heritage of Collin, 25, was
disclosed in The Chicago Sun-
Reached by phone, Robert Lloyd,
Nazi executive director, said,
"The party has a firm policy which
precludes Jews from being mem-

Course on Soviet
Jewry at U. of C.
BERKELEY — A full college
credit course, titled "Soviet Jewry:
A Case History of Oppression,"
is being offered at the University
of California at Berkeley.
"This is the first time that this
important subject is being probed
in depth on an academic level on
any college campus, and we expect
the students and religious school
teachers who enrolled to become
an important force in the effort
to save three million Jews,"
stated Dr. Jerome B. Westin,
chairman of the Soviet Jewry Ac-
tion Group, sponsor of the project.
Ten lecturers by Profs. Abba
Lerner, William Brinner, Robert
Alter and Alary Arnold, will probe
the problems of Soviet Jews from
the days of Czarist Russia right
into present-day conditions.
Harold Light, chairman of Bay
Area (Calif.) Council on Soviet
Jewry will lecture on the effec-
tiveness of "grass roots" move-
ments, their tactical considerations
and action programs. The first
lecture was delivered by Dr. Mar-
tin Wolins to 98 attendants.
to be changed. If the published
information is correct, then, of
course, Collin lied in his applica-
tion for membership."
Collin's father, Max, is the
owner of a Chicago drapery busi-
ness. He speaks freely of his Jew-
ish birth in Germany and of three
months in 1938 when he was im-
prisoned in Dachau.
After Collin was arrested in
a raid on the party headquar-
ters where police seized some
30 guns and 15,000 rounds of
ammunition, his mother, Mrs.
Virginia Collin, a Roman Catho-
lic, revealed his identity.
She said her husband was re-
leased from Dachau and emigrated
to the U.S. He had his name legal-
ly changed from Alex Simon
Cohn to Max F. Collin in 1946,
three years after his marriage.
Airs. Collin said her husband
and son were in violent disagree-
ment over Frank's allegiance to
the party. She said that father
and son have not spoken for years
but that she occasionally talks to
her son on the telephone.
Collin, meanwhile, continued to
deny any Jewish kinship.
The Collin case recalled a simi-
lar one in New York four years
ago when a New York Times re-
porter exposed the Jewish parent-
age of Daniel Burros, a local
chapter leader of the American
Nazi Party and member of the Ku
In last week's paper it was re-
ported that the American Nazi
party had' changed its name and
"rooted out some very irrespon-
sible people," reemerging as the
National Socialist White People's
Party with plans to rally white
youth and factory workers to
"move the world."
Collin, who declined to give the
size of the party except to say it
was "very small," declared the
the New Left, the militant Stu-
dents for a Democratic Society
and SDS's ultramilitant Weather-
men were Jew-run "enemies of the

jection to Jews is that they are
involved in communism" and ex-
