RACIALISM IN NAZI GERMANY
To the Editor: -
The Nazis dwell with great emphasis upon the
notion of purity of race. In fact it is upon this
fiction that one of their chief foundation stones
rests. Their attempt is to revive the pure Aryan
strain - a task as impossible of realization as it
would be to square the circle or to make gold from
There is a group of languages classified by
philologists as Indo-European or Aryan. The same

ber of Indian tongues. One is therefore justified
-The Art Cinema League
AMID the torrent of criticism of Adolph Hitler
and his Nazi government, it is a relief to read
of one aspect of the new German government
which must.find favor with all listeners. Whatever
barbarisms are being perpetrated in Germany, the
country is on the right track from the physical
education point of view.
A recent article in the New York Times con-
tributed by a writer who has recently returned
from Germany states that national socialism
there has placed physical education squarely to
the fore in its social revolution. To quote, "Herr
Hitler indicated this in his book, 'Mein Kampf',
and in speeches and pronouncements he constant-
ly reiterated his conviction of the fundamental
importance of physical education and the re-
sponsibility of the state for providing it."
The German program is more than exercise and
games confined to school and universities. "It is
a many-sided movement taking in both youth
and adults; it ranges from sports and the gen-
eral outdoor life to a new emphasis on rural living
and the development of a rational discipline,"
Major emphasis is being placed on development
of the actual training program for the students in
schools and universities.
The writer relates the way in which these thrifty
people "have taken advantage of the country,
especially for summer hiking, long distance pad-
dling and camping; and for winter sports trips
into the mountains for skiing, snowshoeing, and
tobogganing." This idea reinforces the larger aim
of building interest in rural life.
The author states that the National Socialists
are extremely thorough in this program. "The big
field of public education is being tackled with
breath-taking vigor." One of the first actions of
Hitler was to appoint an administration to take
charge of reorganizing sport in Germany.
The Times article closes with the statement that
"Physical education has come into its own in
Germany, and is destined, for some time at least,
to play an important role in the daily life of
