Nazis Would Slay Jews At Attempt To Kill Hitler BERLIN, Nov. 29 -(U.P.)-Das Schwarze Korps, official i of Fuehrer Adolf Hitler's elite Blackshirt guards, tonight warned that all German Jews would die in mass killings if any attempt were made to assassinate Hitler or any other Nazi leader. - _~ The stormtrooper organ, which f already has predicted the “actually fatal extermination of German Jewry by fire and sword” if any remain ln thc Reich after comple- ] tlon of the anti-Semitic drive, coupled its new warning with a vio- j lent attack on President Roosevelt nnd the United States. “On the day on which a Jewish weapon or a weapon bought by Jews is used against one of the leading men of Germany then there wlll be no more Jews in Germany,” Das Schwartze Korps said, adding: “We hope we have made ourselves clear.” NEW YORKER ANSWERED The warning was in retort to a “letter to the editor" of the New York Dally News, appearing recently over the name of an American Jew who suggested that a group of criminals be released from prison in the United States and sent to Germany to wipe out Hitler's Nazi hierearchy. “The newspaper made this proposal its own by publishing it without commentary and the American government neither banned nor reprimanded the newspaper,” Das Schwarze Korps said. “It did not even declare that it deplored either the proposal itself or the attitude of the newspaper.” r. S. CALLED PROTECTOR “Let us no longer leave ourselves ln any doubt over the fact that the United States, after Soviet Russia's temporary surrender in the world of politics, has taken over the job of official personification of world Jewry.” The stormtrooper newspaper fanned the flames of Nazi attacks on “professional war propagandists" by hitting out at Anthony Eden. Winston Churchill, and Arthur Greenwood of the anti-Nazi wing in the British parliament for “howlitig with disgust when a decent German newspaper puts their portraits together with that of the Jew Grynsz-pan." from the Office f the r6sident j will *tudem body ^^ h i °n Kndayi De_ JhaiJ, 1 v 55 a.m. , clSWln* SChedule w‘“ «°v.

The streets of working-class districts were clogged with alert patrols of police and mobile guards. A battalion of mounted machine-gunners and light artillery moved into Saint Denis In the “red wing” of Paris suburbs.
