FEDERAL INDICTMENT CITES THE USE OF ANTI-SEMITISM AS PART OF CONSPIRACY WASHINftTON (.IPS) — The indlclment which Ihe Federal Grand Jury handed down here against 27 men and 1 woman, charging them with a conspiracy to "inlerlere with, impair and Influence the loyalty, morale and di.sclpilne of the military and na¬ val forces of the United Stales," included a \'arlety of references to the use of antl-SemltIsm by these alleged subver.sive agent.s, an examination of the document reveals. Compleiing sittings which be¬ gan in the District of Columbia In October, 1941, the Grand Jur¬ ors indicted Ihe defendants, list¬ ed as "Gerald B. Winrod, et al," for causing to be printed and for distributing literature i.ssued by various publication-s and for or¬ ganizing and causing to be or- ganizetl various bodies such as Silver Shirus, Black Legion, Ger¬ man-American Bund, etc. In the lengthy, 28-page Indictment, ci¬ tation of evidence Includes, In liart, Ihe charge that these argu¬ ments were used: "The war now raging in all parts of the world, commonly known as 'The War For Sun'l- val'. Is a tlishonesi war wage<l at the exfiense and measueretl in bloo<l and dollars of the peo¬ ple of the United States solely for the benefit ot and lo insure the continuance of world dom inaiion by 'International Jewry Organized Finance,' 'British American Caplulists,' 'British Imperialists,' 'International Bankers,' 'International Capital¬ ists,' Mongolian Jews,' Commun¬ ists and olher persons and groups opposed lo our republl- Against Jews can form of government: "The Axis Powers are fighting lo free the world from domina¬ tion by Communism and Inter¬ nationa] Jewry, hence the United Stales should give no aid and comfort to the enemies of the Axis; "An honorable and just peace could be brought about speed¬ ily were it not for the op|)Osi- tlon of Communists and Inter¬ national .lewry." In that section of the indict¬ ment (]Uoling, at length, the arguments used V)y the defend¬ ants to defame ami vilify Ameri¬ can Government officials, one citation is: "The public officials of the United States are plan¬ ning to mingle the blood of Negroes, criminals and Jews with that of Christian-American soldiers and sailors by the means of Iransfusion-s and so-called ¦blood' hanks' wilh the deliber¬ ate intent and puriMise of cor¬ rupting the blood of the said Chri-sIlan-American soldien. and .sailors." The Grand Jurors also look note of excerpts from speeches, slogans and other allegations di¬ rected at the American Gov¬ ernment and the United Nations placing responsibility for the war on ihem. One of the cita¬ tions was; "The British and French I not the people, hut their Jewish overlordsl opened the war by declaring it againsi Germany in September, 11)31)." Another was: "One must not be deceived by the pacific hu- manllaranlsm of the vocabulary of the White House. Mr. Roose¬ velt has perfectly understood CINCINNATI (JPS)—The tra¬ gedy of the Jews in Hitler Europe" is also our Christian tragedy," Ihe ministers of 400 Protestant congregations in Cin¬ cinnati declared In a statement of sympathy with the Jewish people which was addressed to Rabbi Samuel Wohl and which was rea'l from the pulpits of Christian and .lewish houses of Worship. Di.slrlbuted by the Council of Churches, the state¬ ment, which was also a prayer, said, in part; "With God's help we of the Christian ministry cannot and will not remain silent before the spectacle of ma.ss murder suffer¬ ed by .lews of Nazi-controUecl Europe. The conscience of Chris- ti.in men cries out in agony and protest when their fellow chil¬ dren of God. the helpless and In¬ offensive Jews of Poland and Bessarabia, Russian Ukraine, Austria, Belgium, Holland and France are tortured and uproot- e<l and put to death by the bar- iKiriaiis of Fascism. We weep for the innocent victims of Li¬ dice, and we weep a hundredfold for the victims of NazLsm in a hundretl Jewish towns and places, Lidices too. "This is the tragedy of your European Jewish brethren but It ia also our Christian tragedy. This is un evil suffered by those of Jewish faith, but il is also an evil perpetuated by men of Christian names and Christian pretensloiw. We beg you. Join wilh us in our prayer thai God will show mercy to us who are Christians as well as to you who are Jews." that war is the one opportunity of allowing the Hebrew com¬ rades of his Brain Trust lo re¬ venge themselves and to recon¬ quer Central Europe.
