Nazis
jeered at
Chicago
rally
From Staff and Wire Reports
A small band of uniformed Nazis
showed up in Chicago's Loop Saturday
night, but hurriedly withdrew in the
face of a barrage of eggs, sticks,
firecrackers and beer cans thrown by
thousands of howling protesters.
"Death, death, death to the Nazis,"
the protesters shouted as Nazi leader
Frank Collin arrived at the Federal
Plaza almost an hour and a half late
with about a dozen followers.
THE NAZIS were jeered by the
crowd, incensed at Collin's earlier
plans to march Sunday in the
predominantly Jewish suburb of
Skokie.
Instead, the protesters who had plan-
ned to battle him in Skokie came to
Chicago to confront him when he settled
on theaturday Loop rally and planned
another on Chicago's southwest side
July 9.
The Nazis left their headquarters at 4
p.m. but did not appear in the plaza un-
til shortly before 6.
THEY CARRIED shields and sticks
as protesters surged against police
lines.
"No more Nazis! They have no
rights!" some shouted. A woman who
yelled "Kill the Nazis!" was dragged
away.
At least three other arrests were
reported.
COLLIN WAS hooted down when he
attempted to speak to the crowd. Less
than 15 minutes after they had emerged
from the federal building from behind
police guard, the Nazis withdrew and
left the area.
Collin had billed the demonstration as
a "victory rally to celebrate winning
back our rights of free speech."
He cancelled the Skokie demon-
stration Thursday after a federal judge
authorized the Nazis to hold their rally
in Marquette Park July 9, located in a
racially-troubled neighborhood near
their headquarters.
