"The 'Nazi' in the American
Nazi party is a mere publicity
device. One needs to get atten-
tion somehow for his political
beliefs. This is merely my way
of getting my views aired and
ensuring myself a large, if hos-
tile, audience."
So said the Nazi party leader
George Lincoln Rockwell. In-
terviewed before his speech at
Hill Aud. last night, Rockwell
outlined his party's plan of ap-
pealing to the intellectual and
working-class elements of socie-
ty by two different approaches.
"Tonight, I'm approaching the
intellectual group. I intend to
win people over to my point of
view by logical means.
"The racist approach plays
upon the natural racist inclina-
tions of the working class and
upon their tendency to see things
as two extremes rather than ac-
cepting parts of both points of
view, as the educated classes
have learned to do."
This approach is all a part of
the party's five-point road to

1) Getting the party known.
"Before you can make any prog-
ress at all you have to be be-
fore the public eye so people can
hear your views."
2) Getting the party believed.
"After the party is well-known,
it is then necessary to convert
people to the party's way of
thinking and thus gain party
3) Getting the party organiz-
ed. "Once you have a base of
support you have to convert it
into an organization that can
work to further increase this
4) Getting the party into pow-
er. "If we develop enough popu-
lar support, we can be swept
into office by legal means, the
only means this party will use."
5) Altering the Constitution.
"We might have to make certain
changes in the federal Constitu-
