THREE DOCUMENTS OF THE GERMAN-AMERICAN 

BUND 



I. Source or the Documents 

The three documents, whose originals form a part of the exhibits 
submitted herewith, were obtained by duly constituted authorities 
from the personal effects of G. Wilhelm Kunze, Bundesfiihrer of 
the German-American Bund. The committee has satisfied itself 
concerning the authenticity of the documents. 

G. Wilhelm Kunze was named Bundesfiihrer of the German- 
American Bund after Fritz Kuhn, the former Bundesfiihrer, was 
committed to prison in the State of New York. 

11. The Three Documents 

The three documents which are presented in this report speak for 
themselves. The following observations concerning them are, how- 
ever, in order at this point : 

(1) They attest the ruthless efficiency of the military set-up which 
characterizes Hitler's machine in Germany. 

(2) The discipline to which members of the German-American 
Bund are subject is clearly reflected in the endless rules and regulations 
which extend to the minute details of the Bund members' lives. The 
documents speak of "absolute loyalty" and "blind obedience." Docu- 
ment #3 says of the OD Platoon Leader : "He w^ill never complain of 
his superiors before his comrades, but will display the absolute loyalty 
and correct behavior which he expects from his men. The blind 
obedience that will be absolutely necessary in serious situations can 
be provided only if the Platoon represents a true association of com- 
rades which feels respect for and confidence in its leader" (p. 1608). 

(3) The German -American Bund organization clearly anticipates 
violence by its assertion that "the OD man gives assurance that our 
movement will, at the sacrifice of life if necessary, remain the inex- 
orable opponents of Jewish Marism * * *" (p. 1611). 

(4) The German-American Bund extols the "fanaticism" which has 
characterized Hitler and his movement in Germany. According to 
Document #3, "anyone who is not filled with this unshakable faith 
and courage and cannot march along as a fanatical fighter does not 
belong in the OD; to have embraced the National Socialist view^ of 
things means definitively breaking off all ties with liberal halfway 
measures" (p. 1611). This is a clear espousal of the totalitarian, as 
opposed to the democratic, way of life. 

(5) The following quotations indicate something of the religious 
bigotry of the Germany-American Bund: "All OD men and OD 

1443 



1444 IJN-AMETIICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVI'TIES 

Leaders in particular are required to procure a certificate of Aryan 
blood" (p. 1610). "We are looking for men who enter our organiza- 
tion not in order to procure personal advantages or to be allowed 
to play soldier pleasantly, but who intend with their lohole power 
to eradicate the red Jewish pestilence in America" (p. 1611). 

(6) The German-American Bund aims at the establishment of a 
new kind of government in the United States, one which incorporates 
the principle of Nazi religious bigotry. According to Document #2, 
"the duty of the Bund Fiihrer is to maintain and develop the AV 
by every adjustment to the temporary requirements of the times as 
the defensive and offensive movement of the national consciousness 
of American Germanism dedicated philosophically (Weltanschau- 
lich), national-socialistically, and politically to the service of an 
actually independent, aryan-governed United States of North 
America" (p. 1552). 

(7) Document #1 reveals the keeping of systematic records on 
"enemies" of the German-American Bund. "Record cards contain- 
ing personal information about friends, enemies, merchants, politi- 
cians, association officers, and similar whom we should know are 
to be made out in duplicate exactly as are those for members, patrons, 
and Youth Command members, and submitted monthly; one card is 
to be retained by the Unit or Branch Directorate ; the other is to be 
sent to the National Executive Committee" (p. 1491). "Yellow cards 
bearing the letter 'F' are intended for enemies. Wliere they are 
German a 'D' is to be inserted at the top. They are not to be used 
for Jews. Light blue cards bearing the letter 'J' are for Jews" (p. 
1492). Hitler explained to Rauschning his system of keeping just 
such a card file on "friends" and "enemies." 

(8) Document #1 specifies the manner in which a meeting of the 
Bund shall be closed, as follows: "To a free. Gentile-ruled United 
States and to our fighting movement of awakened Aryan Americans, 
a three- fold rousing 'Free America ! Free America ! Free 
America!" (p. 1495). 

(9) The clocuments reveal the principle of secrecy practised in 
the Bund, as follows: "All names and addresses of Bund members 
and officers must be kept confidential and must not be divulged to 
anyone " (p. 1490). "Names and descriptions of those available for 
work in the block, the block leader commits to memory, but he is 
bound upon his honor not to betray any member's name or descrip- 
tion to the public" (p. 1560). "Patrons may be admitted also under 
'cover' names and 'cover' addresses (fictitious)" (p. 1581). 

(10) These documents betray an assumption regarding the status 
of Americans of German descent which the committee finds wholly 
false. Document #2 declares: "We owe to ourselves, our ancestors, 
and our descendants, the right to be a free people, and not the de- 
spised spit-upon menials of inferior despots (dictators) who deserve 
still to be cursed by our children" (p. 1582). While the committee 
has failed to find any shred of evidence that Americans of German 
descent are subjected to the kind of discrimination implied in this 
statement, it is of the opinion that the very spirit of the German- 
American Bund is calculated to breed the discrimination against 
which it pretends to fight. 

(11) Many passages in these documents betray the existence of a 
close political and ideological tie between the German-American 



APPENDIX PART IV 1445 

Bund and Hitlers movement in Germany. For example, Document 
#1 specifies: "Closing song at 'Horst-Wessel' memorials and other 
memorials in honor of the fallen of the Hitler-Movement: All four 
stanzas of the 'Horst-Wessel' song (salute during last stanza)" 
(p. 1500). Provision is made for the celebration of the birthday of 
Adolf Hitler (p. 1499). "When a representative of the Reich speaks 
at a celebration, the German national anthem is to be played imme- 
diately after his address" (p. 1496). Speaking of the regulations 
contained in Document #2, it is stated that "they are the result of 
the serious study not only of the experiences of our Bund and its 
predecessoi-s, but also of the experiences of the old home under the 
leadership (Fiihrung) of the greatest German of all times" (p. 1583). 
This is a frank acknowledgement of the source of much of the Ger- 
man-American Bund's set-up in Hitler's movement in Germany. 

III. Investigation of the Bund 

From the very beginning of its existence, the Special Committee 
on Un-American Activities has made the German-American Bund 
one of the subjects of its investigation. The first witness heard by 
the committee in the summer of 1938 testified at length on the nature 
and activities of this organization. Since that time, more than a 
score of witnesses have added to the evidence which the committee 
has assembled with a view to determining the character and activities 
of the Bund. 

On the basis of the voluminous testimony which the committee has 
heard, the conclusion has been reached that the German-American 
Bund is an un-American organization engaged in promulgating the 
ideology and attempting to further the interests of nazi-ism in the 
United States. That conclusion is reenforced by the original docu- 
ments which form a part of the exhibits in this report. 

In order that a complete picture of the German-American Bund may 
be presented at this time, the previous findings of the committee are 
included in this report. 

In its report to the House of Representatives at the beginning of 
1939, the committee made the following resume of evidence which had 
been placed before it: 

In its investigation of Nazi and Fascist activities in the United 
States, this committee, recognizing the splendid work done by the 
McCormack Committee, which made its report to Congress on February 
15, 1935, has started where that group left off. 

The so-called McCormack Committee investigated and traced the 
Nazi movement in the United States from the days when Kurt Georg 
Wilhelm Luedecke became their first real representative here on 
through the various steps taken until we come to the creation of the 
the German-American Bund. 

The German-American Bund had as its predecessors the "Teutonia 
Society" and "The Friends of the New Germany." 

This committee had divided its Nazi and Fascist investigation into 
a number of subtitles which we classify as follows: Storm troops, 
correspondence and records, youth movement, consular aid, funds and 
propaganda, guns, rifle ranges, etc., Nazi-Fascist merger, German 
Bund, Italian Black Shirts, Un-American organizations. 



1446 UK-AMEHICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

It was definitely shown that the Nazi activities in the United States 
have their counterpart in everything that has been and is being done 
by similar movements of Nazi minorities in Mexico, South America, 
and Europe. 

These Nazi activities in the United States are traceable to and 
linked with Government-controlled agencies in Nazi Germany, and 
it is not unreasonable to suppose that unless checked immediately 
an American-Nazi force may cause great unrest and serious repercus- 
sions in the United States. 

At this point it should be made distinctly clear that the Nazi ranks 
in the United States are not really German-Americans but rather 
American-Germans. In other words, they consider themselves the 
identical type of minority as the Polish-German minority in Poland, 
the Austrian-German minority which recently brought about the 
annexation of Austria, or the Sudeten Germans in Czechoslovakia 
(vol. 2, p. 1108). 

As an indication of the thoroughness with which this Nazi minority 
has been operating in this country through its connections with Ger- 
many, evidence was introduced showing that the official newspaper 
of the German-American Bund has had advance information on what 
was about to transpire in Germany and gave every evidence of 
intimate knowledge of events to come. 

This committee heard testimony showing that the use of storm 
troops, the youth movement, the training and drilling, the consular 
aid — in fact all of the Nazi activities here are on lines identical with 
those used abroad. 

There are approximately 80 Bund posts in the United States. 
There are no positive or definite figures of the membership although 
it can be stated that there are approximately 25,000 active members 
in the German-American Bund. The fact has also been established 
that some 100,000 persons are willing to be seen at the public mani- 
festations of the Bund.* 

STORM TROOPS 

From this membership, the German-American Bund can muster 
within its own ranks a uniformed force of 5,000 storm troops and it 
was testified that in time of necessity this force could be augmented 
with "strong-arm" detachments of allied groups, such as Italian 
Black Shirts, Silver Shirts, Ukrainians, White Russians, and similar 
organizations (vol. 2, p. 1110). 

Repeatedly it has been asserted that the storm-troop division of the 
Bund is nothing more than a force of ushers for public meetings. 
The fact is that this storm-troop division of the Bund is patterned 
after the Hitler storm troops and its members are the political soldiers 
of a Hitler-inspired movement in the United States. A witness testi- 
fied that from the manpower of this force the Bund, working hand iti 
hand with the German Government, can draft men for a sabotage, 
machine and spy net. 

Despite assertions by the heads of the German- American Bund that 
there are no German citizens in the storm-troop ranks, evidence 
presented before this committee clearly shows that members of that 



* Suhsenuont investigations revealed that tliore were 100,000 members and supporters 
of the Bund. 



APPENDIX PART IV 1447 

organization in all parts of the United States have privately admitted 
that they are not American citizens but are German citizens and in 
many cases have boasted that they never intend to become American 
citizens. 

This committee has failed to find any reason for the existence of 
such storm-troop groups, but there is no Federal statute to prevent 
their formation and activities. 

A witness testified that Herman Schwarzmann, leader of the 
Astoria, Long Island, post, read a book of German Army instructions 
to his storm troops, explaining it as follows : 

I am reading this to you not so mucli because I want you to know what my 
duties are, but because some day all of you may be fuehi-ers of your own groups. 
You can reach these heights if you work hard and come to thoroughly understand 
the problems before us. Every storm trooper should look forward to the day 
when he may become a fuehrer himself. He must know how to handle people, he 
must understand people, he must be able to lead and teach them. 

I tell you that exactly what happened some years ago is happening now in this 
country. In Germany the people finally rose up in resentment. This will happen 
here. It is inevitable. When that day comes, and it is probably not far off, we 
must be prepared to fight for the right kind of government. We must win the 
masses to our side. There will be bloodshed and fighting. We shall have to do 
our part. 

No one knows where we shall have to go — New Jersey, New York, or some other 
part of the country, or what we may be called upon to do. When that time 
comes every man must be thoroughly trained to assume his responsibility. The 
important duties, of course, will fall upon the shoulders of our membership. 
(Implying the storm-troop membership.) 

You may think I am just dreaming or talking in the clouds. But I tell you I 
know what I'm talking about. This trouble will come probably sooner than you 
think. It has to come, judging from the trends of the Nation. 

When we understand how Germans handled their situation in Germany we 
shall know how to handle the difficulty which will arise in America. In all likeli- 
hood the day of trouble will come — Der Tag — with a financial crisis in Washing- 
ton. Then will be the time to wipe out our enemies. 

Remember we are still Germans, for blood is stronger than paper, even though 
we are also American citizens. And as American citizens we have the same 
rights as any other citizen. But our rights have not been observed. The storm 
troops are not even permitted to march on the streets. The controlled press will 
not print our side of the story. Some day that will be changed, for some day 
we shall demand our rights. 

It was testified before the committee that although the Nazis in 
this country claim to follow democratic ideas in electing their officers 
in reality the elections were conducted along the lines of recent Euro- 
pean plebiscites where everything is under such control that no one 
dares vote against the machine (vol. 2, p. 1113). 

Another indication of the close connection between the German- 
American Bund and the Fatherland is to be found in the evidence 
showing that crews of German warships have been entertained by the 
storm troops of the Bund. German World War veterans are active 
in storm-troop ranks and help train and drill the men. 

Many Bund storm troopers are constantly urged to make and have 
made trips to Germany, returning with great quantities of Nazi propa- 
ganda material (vol. 2, p. 1114) . 

Members of the Nazi grou]:)s have been found to be working in some 
of the great aviation manufacturing companies of the United States. 
They were found working in the United States Navy shipyards where 
they had succeeded in securing positions which placed them in direct 



1448 TJN-AMEKICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES , 

possession of secret plans for the construction of United States Navy 
battleships of the latest type. They have even been assigned to trial 
runs on the latest type of these ships (vol. 2, p. 1115) . 

This committee also learned that as the result of its recent national 
convention in New York — the one held in September 1938 — the 
German-American Bund is planning to create a strictly American 
division in conjunction with the bund. First steps in this direction 
have already been taken by the high command of the German-American 
Bund. If this plan is carried out, a merger of a number of minor 
subversive forces in this country may be expected under the swastika 
leadership of Fritz Kuhn and the German-American Bund. 

<X)RRESPONDENCB AND RECORDS 

The investigation of this committee into Nazi activities was seriously 
hampered and handicapped because as soon as the resolution creating 
the committee had been adopted by the Congress, officials of the 
German-American Bund issued an order to their posts throughout the 
country to destroy all their records. 

Dr. Otto Willumeit, 4344 North Sheridan Road, Chicago, 111., in 
a sworn statement made on July 15, 1938, said : 

I became an American citizen in 1932 at Hammond, Ind. Shortly after taking 
over the leadership of the local chapter, I received a letter from Fritz Kuhn, of 
New York. I carried this letter with me for about a month and recently tore it up 
as I did not believe it was important. This letter, although I do not remember 
the exact wording, advised me that in view of the coming congressional investiga- 
tion of the bund, Mr. Kuhn deemed it advisable for me to destroy all correspond- 
ence between the local bund and Germany. He further pointed out that no 
matter how harmless it may be, the letters could be interpreted in a different 
light (vol. 1, p. 42). 

Another affidavit, part of the proof that Fritz Kuhn, head of the 
German-American Bund, had ordered records of that organization 
destroyed, was made by George Froboese, who resides at 3227 North 
Second Street, Milwaukee, Wis., and who is the leader of the middle 
west district of the bund. He stated : 

I have been asked by Mr. Kuhn to destroy such private letters as may be inter- 
preted as being inconsistent with the proper behavior of an American citizen 
(vol. 2, p. 1144). 

However, the investigator for the committee was able to secure pos- 
session of 25 letters which constituted correspondence between the 
Chicago Bund post and Nazi Germany (vol. 1, pp. 29 through 40). 

In this correspondence it was definitely shown that the Foreign 
Institute of the Nazi Government at Stuttgart was one of the instru- 
mentalities used in assisting the German-American Bund in spreading 
propaganda in this country. One of the letters (vol. 1, p. 31) proves 
conclusively a Nazi Government plan to take American children on 
vacations to Germany and the letter states that "properly handled, 
this can be of the utmost importance for the development of foreign 
connections." 

And another quotation from the same letter — 

Friendships cannot be made early enough. Youth is especially susceptible at 
this period. The impressions of a youth in a foreign country influence hundreds 
of his comrades on his return. 



APPENDIX PART IV 1449 

Other correspondence definitely indicates that German consulates 
in the United States have been the clearing houses for much of the 
Nazi activity here (vol. 1, p. 38). 

Throughout this entire correspondence there is definite evidence 
and proof that the groups operated in this country are directed by 
organizations in Germany which get their support and direction from 
the German Government itself. Despite this connection, none of these 
groups in this country have registered with the Secretary of State in 
accordance with the foreign propaganda law which became effective 
September 8, 1938. 

In fact, the Foreign Institute at Stuttgart is being conducted by 
one Fritz Gissibl, a former leader of the Nazi group in this country 
and whose brother even now is a member and leader of the Nazi group 
in Chicago. 

Photographs placed in evidence before the committee, properly 
identified, show a number of German consuls in this country taking 
an active part in the affairs of the German- American Bund and par- 
ticularly in the Nazi festivities arranged at a number of camps 
throughout the United States (vol. 2, p. 1122). 

YOUTH mo\t:me]s;t 

Some German-American children are being Hitlerized by the lead- 
ers of the German-American Bund, despite the fact that under the 
American law every child born in this country is an American citizen. 

The evidence thus far heard indicates that every effort is being 
expended by the bund's high command to instill in these boys and 
girls, most of whom have never even been outside the United States, 
the doctrines of racial and religious hatreds preached under the pagan 
German kultur (vol. 2, p. 1123). 

American ideals and principles of democracy are boldly shoved into 
the background and a worship of Hitlerism is inculcated in these 
youthful unsuspecting minds. Although the committee's investi- 
gator frequently visited Nazi camps in various parts of the country, 
he testified that never once was there an occasion where he saw these 
nazified children led to a Christian religious service in a youth camp. 

Health, Hitler, Heils, and Hatred are the "4-H's" used by United 
States Nazis to prevent Americanization of children whose parents 
are members of the German-American Bund. 

In the coming years all the unity and all the effoi-ts will be required in order 
to put a stop to the former crippling by the Americanization of their young — 

declares the bund yearbook, reprinted from the German magazine 
Deutsche Arbeit, in referring to children of Germany who have 
emigrated to America. 

Hence — 

the yearbook states, after pointing out that Germany's youth move- 
ment at home must confine itself to German children still in the 
Fatherland — 

the youth groups of the Grerman-American Bund are a real achievement for 
Germany. 

In forwarding this program, childish voices ring out in a crescendo 
of "Heil Hitlers" in German-American camps throughout the Nation. 



1450 UN-AMEHICAN PROPAGANDiA AOTIVrTIES 

These American boys and girls sing hymns to Der Fuehrer and to 
the Fatherland they never have seen. 

"Our youth are the lifeline of our movement," leaders repeatedly 
insist. "We may be gone soon and the youth must carry on our 
fight. * * *." 

Under the guise of health, some German-American children are 
being trained and marched away from the democratic traditions of 
America. 

They must learn to speak fluent German and to understand the Nazi 
ideology. They listen to lectures on the Hitler philosophy and the 
policies of the Third Reich. 

In its youth movement, as in the parent organization, the bund 
professes a defense of the United States Constitution and "true 
Americanism." But the camps are completely Nazi Germany. The 
United States is forgotten except for an occasional display of American 
flags. The swastika of Germany is the important flag to the boy and 
girl scouts. "Old Glory" is of secondary importance (vol. 2, p. 1124). 

The scouts eat, sleep, talk, and dream nazi-ism with the same fervor 
of the regimented youth of Germany. They are taught to avoid 
outside "contaminating influences." American history, according 
to testimony before the committee, is revised in public addresses for 
them to show that this country has been saved from destruction only 
through the influence of German -Americans. 

Just as in Germany, the youth movement is divided into three 
sections — the Jungenschaft (boys) ; the Maedchenschaft (girls), and 
the Jungvolk (smaller children too young to join other groups). 

Youngsters are thrust into the Jungvolk organization when only 5 
and 6 years old. They wear uniforms of brown and blue shorts or 
skirts, white blouses with Hitler-brown scarfs. Older boys wear 
brown shirts with Sam Browne belts, military trousers and boots, and 
are armed with long hunting knives and spears. 

Youths graduate into the "Ordnungs Dienst," the storm-troop 
organization of the bund, and are trained mentally and physically to 
lead the troops when the often predicted "trouble" comes. Scouts 
are told they must be prepared to withstand the onrush of the coming 
"red" revolution. 

From their elders, scouts learn to be suspicious of strangers. They 
will not discuss the bund unless they know the listener is sympathetic. 
The investigator for the committee testified that he entered Turner 
Hall at Eighty-fifth Street and Lexingon Avenue in the Yorkville 
German section of New York City, where the bund holds many of its 
meetings, and asked a young scout fuehrer where the bund head- 
quarters were situated. 

"Bund?" the youth asked in pretended ignorance. "I don't know 
anything about the bund." 

Investigation by this investigator disclosed that beyond the door 
he was guarding a group of boys and girls were attending one of the 
"Bundes-Redner-Schule." A propaganda film showing the delights 
of new Germany was part of the day's instruction. 

Landesjugendfuehrer (national youth leader) is Theodore Dinke- 
lacker, 9238 Lamont Avenue, Elmhurst, Long Island. Under 30, 
Dinkelacker devotes all of his time to drilling and teaching poten- 
tial national socialists. He leads them in parades behind the storm

troops at summer festivals and in the city drill halls of the bund 
during the winter. 

Our youth love the fight— 

Dinkelacker explained to a witness. 

They are mostly sons and daughters of old fighters and thus they will not permit 
the fighting spirit of the bund to die out. 

National socialism is a world-wide philosophy of strength. We teach our 
youth along these lines so that they may take the right road in life. We 
instill in them pride of German nationality and race. We insist on order and 
discipline to build character and a broad athletic program to build the body. 

Youth builds are proud of being the future of "'the only fighting 
organization in German-America" Dinkelacker says according to 
testimony before the committee, and "will always look down with 
contempt upon those who avoid the battle, who gather in little groups 
and clubs in order, when they reach manhood, to change into rabbit- 
breeding societies or bowling clubs" (vol. 2, p. 1125). 

All boys and girls — 

he continued, according to this same testimony — 

have the obligation to keep themselves strong and healthy for their German 
race ; healthy in order to transmit as a link in an unending chain the heritage of 
our ancestors to the coming generation ; strong in order to ward off every 
attack against the German race ; politically and economically. 

The bund youth group "does not only have the purpose to breed a 
new generation, as certain malicious tongues assert," Dinkelacker 
explamed, according to the testimony of a witness before the com- 
mittee. 

We wish to train the young to become useful members of the German racial 
community. We wish to train our youth groups to such an extent that by observa- 
tion we may be able to pick out talented boys and girls, support them in their 
education, and thus create the possibility that the most capable be placed at the 
head, for the benefit not only of the German element but of the entire Nation. 

Camp Hindenburg, near Grafton, Wis., 18 miles north of Milwaukee, 
is the "summer home" of Chicago and Milwaukee scouts. The camp 
is in its third year. There was also testimony that two signs, one in 
blue and one in red, point the way to the camp down a gravel road 
from U. S. Highway 141. The signs are lettered merely "A. V." 
The camp itself is set in the valley surrounded by wooded hills with 
the Milwaukee River providing swimming facilities on the west side 
of the tract. There is a parking lot for autos through which one must 
pass before entering the camp proper. The camp and lot are separated 
by a wire fence with a single pole carrying a sign "Private property." 

Unlike the eastern camps, there are no elaborate permanent build- 
ings at Camp Hindenburg. The Kaffee Kucha (coifee kitchen) and 
beer stand are housed in small wooden structures. Tents are set in a 
circle. In the center is a tall flagpole from which are flown the Amer- 
ican flag and the Jungenschaf t flag — a white streak of lightning or half 
swastika on a black background. Regulation German swastika flags 
are displayed on special occasions. 

About 80 boys from Chicago and Milwaukee gave up the tents on 
August 1, after a 2- week stay at the camp, and about 100 girls moved 
in. The boys and girls marched behind a military band of German 
World War veterans to the flagpole for a ceremony, during which the 
boys' flag was replaced by that of the girls' organization. 



1452 UN-AMETIICAN PROPAGAKDiA ACTIVITIES 

Uniforms worn by tlie Chicago and Milwaukee boys include a wide 
brown belt with a silver buckle bearing a swastika and the legend 
"Blut and Ehre" (blood and honor). One boy displaced a hunting 
knife which had a similar inscription on the blade. 

Chicago boys and girls when not in camp meet once a week or 
oftener at the Bundesheim (bund home) at 3853 North Western 
Avenue and at the south side headquarters at 605 West Sixtieth Street. 
They also attend the Theodore Koerner Schule, operated at the north 
side home. 

The American Nazi youth movement is much stronger in the East 
and Middle West than in the Far West. 

According to one witness, the west coast bund members enthusiasti- 
cally welcomed Erich BarischofF, member of the Brooklyn, N. Y., 
Jungenschaft, who appeared at Deutsches Hans, Los Angeles head- 
quarters, August 1, after a 24-day hike across the country. Erich was 
en route to the Dutch East Indies and thence to Germany to visit 
relatives. According to testimony before the committee he had nothing 
but scorn for the American Boy Scouts (vol. 2, p. 1126). 

They're sissies — 

he exclaimed. 

They don't know what hardships are like. They take little walks while we 
travel hundreds of miles. There is no comparison between the American Boy 
Scouts and the Jungenschaft. The Americans are babies alongside of us. 

The Philadelphia youth encampment is part of the bund layout of 
the Deutschorst Country Club, near Croydon, Pa. Forty boys and 
25 girls live in tents and in an old mansion, which had been used at 
one time as a speakeasy and later as a home for wayward girls before 
the bund leased it 4 years ago, according to testimony before the 
committee. The owner offered to sell the property to the bund for 
$12,000 4 years ago but boosted his price to $18,000 last summer 
just before the lease expired. 

A Philadelphia storm trooper in a conversation with his fuehrer, 
G. W. Kunze, on July 25, revealed "how we fooled those newspaper- 
men." A reporter and photographer of the Philadelphia Record 
spent several hours at the camp that day. 

They didn't see a thing and got only a lot of pictures that don't mean any- 
thing — 

the trooper explained. 

The funniest thing happened when they went to the youth camp. All they saw 
was the boys and their tents with a little American flag on the staff. They 
didn't get to see our flag. 

The trooper indicated the swastika had been removed purposely for 
the day in anticipation of newspaper photographers. 

Efdende camp, 9 miles north of Pontiac, Mich., serves the Detroit 
post. It does not compare in size or in buildings and improvements 
with the eastern camps. Entrance is down a side road off United 
States Highway 10 at the Springfield Gladiola Farms. A small sign 
reads "Summer Camp A. V." Detroit members are cautious about 
displaying swastikas or other Hitler emblems at their camp. 

A small frame building houses a kitchen and bar near the lake shore 
while headquarters for the Jungenschaft is beyond an athletic field. 
About 20 girls and 30 boys are accommodated in separate units of a 
one-story building. 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1453 

The most elaborate of the bund's camps are Siegriecl, near Yap- 
hank, Long Island, and Nordland, near Andover, N. J. It was at a 
youth celebration at Camp Siegfried on July 11, that National Leader 
Fritz Kuhn, according to testimony, said: 

The youth of our great bund are the hope, the life line of our organization. 
Through them we must live into the future. It is, therefore, necessary that we 
must stand united behind them, educate them and raise them to manhood and 
womanhood with our ideals imbedded in their hearts. We must fight together 
for their freedom. 

We nmst work to win over the youth of all German-Americans and some day 
when our labor has reaped its reward we shall hear fine and strong German- 
American youths come marching from the east and west, from the south and 
nortli — marching onward to build a greater nation. 

When "Achtung!" (Attention) rings out over the loudspeaker 
system in the eastern camps, scouts as well as storm troopers hurry 
to attention. If it is Sunday morning at Camp Siegfried, boys 
and girls form into separate ranks and prepare to greet storm 
troopers and other bund members arriving from New York on a 
special train. 

Some of the scouts march behind the German swastika and the 
American flag to the railroad station 2 miles away through Yaphank. 
They line up at attention beside the track and, as the train pulls in, 
their arms are outstretched in a Hitler salute to the arriving guests. 

With a band blaring a stirring German march, the scouts and 
guests — 500 or more strong — march back through the village to the 
camp where another contingent of scouts is at attention "heiling" 
the arriving storm troops. 

' At Siegfried and at other eastern bund camps, separate tent en- 
campments for boys and girls are set back in the woods, away from 
the main building and cottages where their parents drink beer and 
dance. Sentries stand guard at entrances to the rows of tents. 
Visitors — even parents of the scouts — are not permitted in the youth 
camps proper. Scouts on duty in the camps must come to the 
entrances to visit with their parents. If not on duty, they are 
permitted to roam through the entire camp layout at will. 

A German steel helmet and a long lance are part of the equipment 
of the guard at the entrance to the boys' camp at Siegfried. The 
lance and helmet are passed along to each boy as he takes up sentry 
duty. Commands and conversations among the scouts are entirely 
in German, but they politely answer questions in English (vol. 2, 
p. 1127). 

Discipline is rigid. Some scouts are assigned to duty at soft- 
drink stands in camp on Sunday. Others carry water to perspiring 
troopers. 

German -Americans can send their children to the camp for from 
$3.50 to $5 a week. If their parents have the money, the children 
remain in camp all summer and enjoy a theoretical 3-month trip to 
Germany. 

Camps are supported partly from contributions. Otto Arndt, one 
of the most active of the New York area storm troops, according to 
testimony, said his contributions to the Jungenschaft amounted to 
$25,000 during a year. 

A collection was taken up for the Jurgenschaft at the end of a night 
boat trip up the Hudson w^hich outw^ardly had no connection with tlip- 
bund, but which was sponsored by the Steneck travel bureau. 



1454 UN-AMEBicAN propaga:xda activities 

The youth camp at Siegfried is a half mile around a lake from the 
main camp building. A two-story stucco building, adaptable for 
winter use, serves as headquarters. Tents are pitched on wooden 
foundations back in the woods. At Camp Nordland, set in the wooded 
hills of Sussex County, N. J., the tents are in one end of the 100-acre 
tract. 

Heels click together and the right arm goes out in a Hitler salute 
when a scout, boy or girl, is addressed by a youth leader or any storm 
trooper in uniform. 

Singing forms an important part of the camp training. Both boys 
and girls are divided into older and younger groups and learn numerous 
songs in praise of Hitler and the new Germany. The boys also have 
a fife, bugle, and drum corps, members of which are equipped with 
red and white epaulets. 

As part of their training for "true Americanism," scouts sing "Heute 
Hoert Uns Deutschland — Morgen Die Ganze Welt !" (Today Germany 
hears us, tomorrow the whole world) and "We are the friends of the 
New Germany" (vol. 2, p. 1128). 

They join enthusiastically in singing "Deutschland Ueber Alles" and 
the "Horst Wessel," the Hitler national anthem, but have a difficult 
time remembering "The Star-Spangled Banner." 

Girl scouts are trained in the folk dances of Germany and perform 
at the various bund functions. 

For some of the smaller girls, camp life brings the ordeal of living 
away from their parents for the first time. 

How quickly a German-American boy can become a part of the 
Hitler youth program was explained to a witness who appeared before 
the committee, by a woman bund member. She said, according to 
this witness, her youthful cousin scorned the camp idea at first, but 
after one visit came home singing Nazi songs and remarked that the 
German scouts were "real kameraden." After another visit, he became 
a member. Today, at 19, he is a fuehrer and has learned to speak 
German. 

"His older brother", she said, "who is in the United States Navy, 
makes fun of the boy's scout uniform and his Hitler salute. But we 
tell him not to mind, the older brother will learn the truth before long 
and realize he too must join the new Germany." 

The bund also maintains camps near Buffalo, Schenectady, Cleve- 
land, Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland, Calif., Spokane, Seattle, Port- 
land, Oreg., and at St. Louis. 

All bund leaders — from Fuehrer Fritz Kuhn down to minor leaders 
in local posts — recognize the importance of the youth movement, but 
none more than Carl (Papa) Nicolay, South Brooklyn leader and 
national speaker since the inception of the organization. 

Nicolay, who is nearing 60, is the most enthusiastic and most verbose 
of the bund speakers. 

Nicolay wrote of the wonders of Germany under Hitler : 

The gradual education away from shallow internationalism and the often but 
not too obvious meaninglessness of its decadent liberalism and democracy * * * 
to sound and rational nationalism, which in its very desire for the strength of its 
own country and people, will not only tolerate but look to similar national strength 
in others, but make for real peace, therefore, instead of war. 

He wrote of the joy of Hitler youth but did not mention the signs 
over Nazi youth camps: "You were born to die for Germany." 



APPENDIX PART IV 1455 

In Germany, all young people are forced by the state youth laws 
to become members of the Hitler Youth or the League of German 
Girls and undergo national socialist schooling. American children 
of bund members "love the fight" in the words of the national leader, 
Theodor Dinkelacker, and don't need a law to force them into the 
regimented organization. 

In a mimeographed paper issued by the American nazi youth move- 
ment, Hitler is termecl "the prophet of a new and nobler chapter in 
the course of human events." His creed is world-wide, youthful 
Americans are told. 

He leads the struggle for race preservation against the melting pot idea of 
international-minded dabblers in theoretical concepts of the "brotherhood" of 
all races. 

The setting up of a nation in order ; clean and strong, free and unified, is a 
miracle which only proves the prophet is divinely inspired with God-given 
powers and insight. 

The slumbering embers Adolf Hitler has fanned into fire in the hearts of 
Aryan men will break out into a mighty blaze that will consume the enemy 
when he raises his red rags. 

The world quivers with the convulsions of an approaching earthquake that 
will shake each nation to its bedrock, bury everything corrupt, and outmoded 
and clear away to leave a world of virile, progressive, race-conscious nations. 

The article, signed by Paul M. Ochojski, in charge of the English 
columns of the youth paper, thus tells American children of the 
same "approaching revolution" which bund speakers warn their 
members to prepare for (vol. 2, p. 1129). 

In another article, Ochojski declares Germans are "vanishing" in 
the United States because they "aren't organized and fighting" 
against their enemies. 

Rallying American children of bund members to answer the battle 
call to fight, Ochojski warns that unless action is taken Germans in 
America are "doomed to become a gray, raceless mixture of unskilled 
laborers having no voice in politics and no economic power." 

There is no more immigration of new blood from Germany to freshen up the 
dying cadaver of Germanic America — 

the writer explains. 

Organize, keep alive German language and traditions, learn useful and higher 
trades, go to schools and colleges, enter professions and politics, tight the 
enemies of Germany. 

Discipline of bund youth was praised by Herr Weiss, physical edu- 
cation instructor at the organization's Philadelphia youth camp, 
Deutschhorst, near Croydon, Pa. He told the committee's investi- 
gator the boys and girls in camp obeyed orders "just like little 
soldiers." 

The boys Avore hunting knives encased in leather holsters attached 
to their belts. Handles of the knives showed a small swastika. Asked 
if the knives were made in New York : 

No- 
One boy is said to have replied. 

The knives come straight from Germany and they can't send enough to supply 
everybody who wants one. When the next boat comes over, it will bring many 
knives, but there will not be enough to take care of all the orders. 



1456 UN-AMEItlCAN PROPAGANDA ACTTVTTIES 

Youth Leader Dinkelacker declared at the bund national con- 
vention : 

It is highly important that we train them to think our way — the right way. 
Every bit of support you give this movement, whether it be financial or otherwise, 
is deeply appreciated and most significant. Urge your children and the children 
of your friends and relatives to join with us. We have great camps and training 
schools for them. The children will benefit by this training indoors and outdoors 
and will learn to understand the true meaning of our case and when they have 
reached mature life, they will rise to fight with us and will send their children 
to us. 

The aims of the Amerika-Deutscher Volksbund as printed in its 
yearbook includes much the same message for youth. 

To this youth we bind ourselves in duty to the end that some day it may feel 
bound in duty to our nationality and complete what we have begun. To have 
trained and strengthened and schooled them for national and racial responsibility, 
to be clean, healthy, and strong men and women, that some day shall be the 
fairest reward for our pains, activity, and sacrifices. 

An example, pointed out to the committee, of the arrogance of the 
American-Nazi machine in its march to indoctrinate Nazi idealism in 
American youth was discovered recently in St. Louis, where reside 
some 100,000 German Americans, forming nearly one-eighth of the 
city's population (vol, 2, p. 1130) . 

It was testified that Nazi propaganda was slyly worked into the 
public schools of that city in recent months under the guise of summer 
German-language classes ; that ostensibly, the plan was to simply teach 
the German language and sing German folk songs, but before very 
long it became apparent this was not at all the real purposes of the 
classes. Instead, instructions drifted into Nazi doctrines. 

According to evidence before the committee, these classes were 
inaugurated through the efforts of a Mr. Walter Rist, a native-born 
citizen of St. Louis, last May. Fifteen fellow teachers and laymen 
were enlisted for this propaganda work. These instructors, according 
to this same testimony, offered their services without compensation, 
at least none from the schools. They also obtained classrooms in two 
public schools and succeeded in enrolling some 400 students. 

Some highly interesting facts in conjunction with this Nazi propa- 
ganda schooling of American boys and girls has, however, come to the 
attention of the committee. After every Saturday class, trucks picked 
up some 50 of the children and carried them 55 miles to a Nazi camp 
near Stanton, Mo. This camp site is operated by the Deutsch- 
Amerikanische Berufgemeinschaft and is under the direction of 
Eberhard von Blankenhagen, former Consul Secretary of the German 
Embassy in Washington, according to this same testimony. 

In manner similar to other Nazi camps throughout the country, this 
site is run with Prussian military precision. German is spoken every- 
where and children are forced to don uniforms and so make their 
appearances at meetings and meals. 

American educational institutions throughout the United States offer 
in their curriculums any number of German classes. Yet despite this 
fact, according to a witness, the German-American Bund has set up 
a German school system of its own. If these bund schools are purely 
for teaching the German language, why has the bund created a secret 
school system of its own ? 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1457 

Schools just like these Bund classes have been opened by Nazi 
minorities not just in the United States but also in many other lands, 
such as South America, Poland, and in the Sudeten areas. 

At the national convention of the German-American Bund held a 
year ago in the Biltmore Hotel, New York, Bund officials from all 
sections of the United States heard at length a talk by a representative 
of the Polish-German Bund on this very subject. He outlined in 
detail just how the Nazi minority in Poland had succeeded in setting 
up this hidden school system, along with its own Kultur church system. 
And to the cheers of bund leaders, he forecast that the day is not 
far off when Germany would succeed in building u|) through the 
German-American Bund an identical program in the United States 
(vol. 2, p. 1131). 

The spread of the Hitler youth movement within the ranks of the 
German-American Bund is reflected in a list of boys' units which 
have been established, which are experiencing a continued growth in 
numbers. This list includes the following : 

Eastern district : Manhattan, N. Y. ; Brooklyn, N. Y. ; Buffalo, N. Y. ; Hudson 
County, N. J. ; Philadelphia, Pa. ; Newark, N. J. ; Nassau County, Long Island ; 
Astoria, Long Island ; Bronx, N. Y. ; White Plains, N. Y. ; .Jamaica, Long Island ; 
South Brooklyn, N. Y. ; Schenectady, N. Y. ; Yonkers, N. Y. ; Lindenhurst, Long 
Island ; Pittsburgh, Pa. ; Passaic, N. J. 

Middle West district : Detroit. Mich. ; Chicago, 111. ; Milwaukee, Wis. ; Cleve- 
land, Ohio ; and Kenosha, Wis. 

Western district : Los Angeles, Calif. 

It is of interest to note the purchase of a site for youth camps in 
Camp Siegfried, at a cost of $8,000, that Theodore Dinkelacker, na- 
tional youth leader of the German- American Bund, has advised that 
the money used in this purchase was raised by loans from the Long 
Island membership of the German- American Bund, and particularly 
from parents of the children. Dinkelacker also declared that the 
older boys in the children's camp are given instructions in ways in 
which they should avoid it. He stated that the older boys are also 
given instructions in national socialism. 

However, when this same national youth leader was asked : 

Do you give them instructions in our democratic form of government? 

Dinkelacker is said to have replied as follows : 

No, they are too young to understand about Republicans. Democrats, etc. 

In other words, it is the belief of the bund that these boys and 
girls are too young to be taught Americanism but old enough to instill 
in them Nazi ideology. 

Along this same line it is of interest to note that Spellsberg, who 
was a former leader of the San Francisco storm troops, does not 
think it is worth while for the bund to try to win over these German 
Americans who came to the United States before the World War. 
Spellsberg, who trained speakers of the Germany-American Bund for 
propaganda purposes, points out instead as follows: "Get the youth!" 

So closely related is the youth movement of the German- American 
Bund to that of the Hitler youth in Germany that they even sing the 
songs of the Hitler vouth and reprint them in their song books (vol. 2. 
p. 1132). 

27989.5—41 — pt. 4 2 



1458 UN-AMEKICAN PROPAGANDA ACTTVrTIES 

On page 3 of the issue No. 6 of Junges Volk for June 1937, there are 
German songs of this character. The first song contains the words : 

We have sworn an oath to our flag. 

The second verse states : 

The flag is our faith in God, people, and country, 
Whoever wants to rob it, may rather take our lives and hands, 
We shall care for the flag like for our good mother 
Because the flag means tomorrow and honor and courage. 

It should be made very clear in this connection that the flag referred 
to by the bund and its youth movement is not the Stars and Stripes 
of America but the swastika of Germany, 

Another song on the same page is quoted as follows : 

Fly, you sparks, fly into our time, 
Announce war to all far and near 
Who dare argue with us and who 
Carry discord in their hearts. 

On page 4 of the same issue there appears a song which is quoted 
as follows : 

Youth, Youth — We are-the future soldiers. 

Youth, Youth — We are the ones to carry out future deeds. 

Yes ; through our fists will be smashed who stands in our way. 

Youth, Youth — We are the future soldiers. 

Youth, Youth — We are the ones to carry out future deeds. 

Fuehrer — We belong to you ; yes, we comrades belong to you. 

Again, it is pointed out that in the last line of this verse, the word 
"Fuehrer" does not refer to the President of the United States or any 
other American, but to Adolf Hitler, of Germany. 

In effect, therefore, the Bund babies sing : 

Hitler, we belong to you ; yes, we comrades belong to you. 

The practice of spreading Nazi propaganda through educational 
institutions does not, however, stop here. It has crept into many 
American institutions of higher learning. 

One of the most alarming ways of Nazi propaganda along this line 
has swept through the ranks of exchange students to universities. 

The purpose of the "exchange students" to universities has long 
been to foster good will and peace among the nations. The American 
student in a European university learns of the customs, habits, and 
cultural progress of the country in which he studies. The European 
student in an American school learns to appreciate American culture. 
The result is greater understanding. 

But this worthwhile aim has been neglected in the exchange of 
German students for American, Now, American students are being 
indoctrinated with the aims of nazi-ism in Germany both abroad and 
at home to the detriment of democratic institutions in America (vol. 
2, p. 1133). 

Take, for instance, the case of the Committee on American Youth 
Camp in Germany, This committee arranges trips and stays for 
American youths in Germany. On the letterlieads of this committee 
there is found the names of the following persons : 

Dr. Colin Ross, Munich. 

Professor Sprengling, University of Chicago. 

Mrs. Dupont Ruoff, Wilmington, Del. 

Mr. Leslie Bissel, Munich. 

Mrs. Elsie von Johnson, Munich (formerly of Galveston). 



APPENDIX PART IV 1459 

It should be noted that according to testimony we heard, Dr., 
Colin Ross is a Nazi propagandist who spends his time between 
Germany and the United States. He has been one of the outstanding 
speakers for the German-American Bund and has been a writer for 
(he AVeckruf, official organ of the bund (vol. 2, pp. 1133 and 1134). 

It is of interest to note that the following article in connection 
with the Student Exchange idea, which appeared November 14 in the 
New York Times, having been cabled from Berlin : 

Berun. — A marked increase in the number of American private preparatory 
schools exchanging students with the official National Socialist boarding schools, 
called National Political Education Institutes, is represented here as another 
victory for national socialism over foreign prejudice. 

Several American boarding schools have been sending students for a year's 
training in National Socialist institutions. This year has been a notable increase 
in the American schools taking part. In the past there has been no difficulty in 
finding young National Socialists to go to the United States since their expenses 
are paid by the State. However, very few young Americans could be found for 
exchange purposes. Largely because of vigorous propaganda by the international 
schoolboy fellowship, this situation has been altered. The American boys here 
imdergo a year's thorough training in national socialism and wear the custom- 
ary brown-shirt uniform. 

Photographs taken at many of the youth camps were introduced in 
evidence. In one instance pictures of children six years old were 
shown with the swastika, regulation German Army steel helmets and 
spears instead of the American flag. 

CONSULAR AID 

Denials to the contrary notwithstanding, this committee was 
greatly impressed with the evidence presented showing that there is 
a relationship existing between the German Government and the 
Gennan-American Bund through the activities of Nazi consuls in 
this country. 

Fritz Kuhn, leader of the German-American Bund, informed this 
committee's investigator at a time when the latter was disguised as a 
storm trooper that not only did he have power over the Ambassador 
and consular set-up in the United States but that he also had a special 
secret arrangement directly with Adolf Hitler, of Germany. 

Ramifications of this "arrangement," Kuhn declared, also included 
a secret relationship between the German-American Bund and Dr. 
Hans Heinrich Dieckhoff, present German Ambassador to the United 
States, and German consuls throughout the country. (See vol, 2, p. 
1149.) 

In his executive office on the second floor of the bund national head- 
quarters at 178 East Eighty -fifth Street, New York City, on the night 
of August 16, 1937, this committee's investigator testified that he spoke 
with Kuhn concerning a trip he had made to the Pacific coast and told 
him of the difficulties the Los Angeles Post had had with the German 
consul there. According to this testimony, Kuhn exclaimed : 

My God, what's the matter with them. They know what to do. Why don't 
they let me know about it? I've heard before of this trouble in Los Angeles. 
Schwinn talked it over with me. 

(This Schwinn is Hermann Schwinn, western leader of the German- 
American Bund. He is from Los Angeles.) 

Oh, well, maybe Schwinn took my order of instructions with him to Germany 
and forgot to send it to his district. 



1460 UN-AMEHICAN PROPAGANDA ACTTVrTIES 

, It was at this point that Kuhn made the following statement to the 
investigator for the committee : 

You see, I have a certain special arrangement with Hitler and Germany that 
whenever any of our groups have trouble with the consulates in their districts 
that they are to report it to me in full detail. I then take it up with the Am- 
bassador. Germany is not to be troubled with it unless I get no satisfaction 
from the Ambassador. 

That is exactly why there is a new Ambassador to the United States, and 
that is exactly why many consuls have been and still are being removed. All the 
new consuls are National Socialists and are under special instructions to give us 
the fullest cooperation in every way. 

It should be pointed out that Dr. Hans Heinrich Dieckhoff , preseni 
Ambassador, was sent to the United States, May 14, 1938, to replace 
Dr. Hans Luther, whose policy, bund leaders said, did not coincide 
with those of the bund and the Nazi Party in Germany. There have 
been numerous consulate changes during the last 2 years, and bund 
leaders a year ago predicted that more would follow. 

One of the new consuls general appointed a little over a year a,go 
was Manfred von Killinger, who was assigned to San Francisco on 
June 11, 1937. It was shortly after his appointment that the com- 
mittee's investigator visited San Francisco and, on the night of 
August 16, 1937, reported to Kuhn that the San Francisco post of 
the German-American Bund was well pleased with its new consul. 
Kuhn stated, according to the investigator for the committee: 

Of course, he is the kind of consul we want everywhere. 

An article of considerable interest in this connection with the 
affairs of Baron von Killinger was published only recently in the 
Salt Lake City Tribune — to be exact, on August 16. The following 
excerpts from the article: 

"The German Government looks upon bund activities in America exclusively 
as an internal problem of this country, since only American citizens may belong 
to bunds," Baron Manfred von Killinger, German consul general at San 
Francisco, asserted here Monday. 

It is a fact that the ranks of the American -German Bund include 
not only American citizens but also aliens. This fact has been estab- 
lished in admission to the committee investigator by various members 
of the bund to the effect that "they are German citizens and intend to 
remain aliens." 

The article continues as follows : 

The consul, rated as the No. 2 German in America and close friend of Hitler, 
was a storm-troop leader in middle Germany and, after Hitler's rise to power, 
became Prime Minister of Saxony, relinquishing this position in 1935, when state 
governments were abolished, to enter the diplomatic service. 

Although denying emphatically any connection between the German Govern- 
ment and bund camps and organizations for training pro-Nazis in this country. 
Baron von Killinger expressed sympathy with bund aims. 

"The bund leader in Los Angeles has conferred with me and asked me to ad- 
dress members there," the consul related, "but that does not mean I have gone 
to them." 

It is known that Von Killinger has addressed meetings on the coast, 
and newspapers on the Pacific coast have carried many articles and 
pictures of these gatherings, many of them showing Consul von 
Killinger. 



APPENDIX — PART lY 1461 

Consul von Killinger was also reported as stating that the activities 
against certain religious groups in this country, as practiced by the 
German American Bund, are "for the good of America." 

The committee had before it evidence (vol. 2, p. 1151) that certain 
American citizens residing in California had made trips to Germany 
for the purpose of being schooled in the art of Nazi propaganda and 
enlightenment. In one instance the father of one of these men (vol. 
2, p. 1151) told this committee's investigator that his son's expenses 
to Germany had been paid through a secret arrangement between the 
German-American Bund and the Nazi Government. 

The consuls and diplomatic representatives of Nazi Germany in this 
country show a much closer cooperation with the nationalists of their 
coimtry than any other similar group accredited here. 

In fact, the evidence introduced plainly shows that American Citi- 
zens have received Nazi propaganda by mail in packages carrying the 
imprint of the Nazi consulate at St. Louis (vol. 2, p. 1156). 

In addition to the close relationship between the German consular 
service and the German-American Bund throughout the United States, 
cooperative actions have been noted also between bund officials and 
officials of German steamship lines. 

According to the daily press, Fritz Kuhn, leader of the German- 
American Bund, has denied the accuracy and authenticity of state- 
ments attributed to him by the investigator for this committee. This 
committee has informed the aforementioned Kuhn that it would be 
very glad to have him appear as a witness and make his denials under 
oath provided he came in with clean hands and brought with him the 
full and complete records of his organization showing not only the 
membership but the amounts and sources of moneys received and the 
manner in which they have been expended. 

FUNDS AND PROPAGANDA 

Propaganda direct from the German Ministry of Propaganda and 
Enlightenment is distributed by bund officials and evidence was intro- 
duced showing definitely that printed propaganda material was 
shipped from Germany to United States citizens directly. These 
packages contained, according to the testimony, considerable Nazi 
propaganda which was printed in Germany for distribution in the 
United States, considerable Fascist propaganda which was printed in 
Great Britain for distribution here, and much material of antiracial 
and antireligious character which was printed here, shipped to Ger- 
man Government agencies, and then reshipped to the United States 
for distribution in this country. 

Much of this propaganda is designed for the specific purpose of 
preaching the gospel of national socialism and the aim of Nazi Ger- 
many in foreign lands from every conceivable angle. The names of 
the American citizens to whom this material was sent from Germany 
were not permitted in the record because many of them feared reprisals 
from agents of Nazi Germany. 

Some of the packages containing German material carried with them 
letters from one Johannes Klapproth, who is in charge of the American 
section of the World Service, one of the chief Nazi propaganda agen- 
cies. This agency, located in Erfurt, Germany, ships materials to the 



1462 UN-AMEKICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

United States and elsewhere. It was referred to briefly on the opening 
day of testimony and the evidence presented here is in full substan- 
tiation of statements made at that time. 

Before continuing however, it is well first to consider the back- 
ground of Mr. Klapproth. Without making any personal reference 
to this man, but replying on another Federal Government department, 
Klapproth's record is herewith presented, this record being no differ- 
ent from that already in possession of this committee : 

Klapproth was an original member of the German Nazi Party before Hitler 
rose to power. He is fanatically antiraeial and deeply interested in the Silver 
Shirts movement. He is continually exchanging reading matter with Silver 
Shirt leaders. He was the organizer of the Friends of New Germany in San 
Francisco and vicinity. In April 1034 he wrote a report to Germany on the 
slow progress of the San Francisco Bund at that time, blaming Consul Heuser for 
this condition. 

He is acquainted intimately with George Deatherage and Kositsin and corre- 
sponds with them. Klapproth is now in Germany. 

He came to the United States in 1928. He is an engineer. Going east, he 
became the gauleiter [district leader] of Brooklyn for the Nazi movement. This 
was early in 1935. He returned to the bay region, supposedly after a visit to 
Germany, where he boasted of having had a conference with Goering during the 
summer of 1936. 

Klapproth toured the west coast with Deatherage for the purpose of inter- 
viewing pro-Nazi elements. He received mail at the German consulate in San 
Francisco. This fact alone once again establishes the tie-up between the German 
Government and the German-American Bund. 

The packages coming here from abroad contained printed material 
from the pen of Ernst Goerner, of Milwaukee, Wis. ; pamphlets from 
the Knights of the White Camellia, an organization founded by George 
E. Deatherage, of Charleston, W. Va. ; leaflets from the Russian 
National Union; and issues from the Christian Free Press, printed in 
Glendale, Calif. 

Contained in the exhibits of propaganda presented to the committee 
was a very expensive magazine glorifying Germany's industrial 
achievements. It is significant that while Naziland defaults on its 
bonds and no American firm can take its money out of the country, 
it is able to finance and distribute sucli propaganda. 

One paradox in this particular propaganda maneuvering is the 
fact that the aforementioned Klapproth, apparently backed by a 
huge fund for this Nazi work, still asks gullible Americans to send him 
money for his printed matter which creates racial and religious 
bigotry in this country. 

A superior court judge in California, without requesting it in any 
way, received four pieces of propaganda put out by the Nazis and 
printed in Germany, and envelopes advertising George Deatherage 
and his American Nationalist Confederation of Charleston, W. Va., 
which utilizes the swastika as its symbol (vol. 2, p. 1178). 

The following affidavit has a vital bearing on this whole matter : 

* * * being duly sworn, upon his oath says * * * ; That he received, 
on or about July 25, 1938, the accompanying pamphlet, entitled "World Service," 
which he has attached to this affidavit as exhibit A. That the same was mailed 
to him from Erfurt, Germany, iu the enclosed envelope, which has been marke<l 
"Exhibit B." 

That he did not subscribe for this pamphlet, or publication, and did not request 
that it be sent to him. That it is one of a series along similar lines that he has 
been receiving at intervals over a considerable period of time. 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1463 

That he makes this affidavit in order that any parties interested, including the 
congressional investigation committee of whicli Congressman Martin Dies is 
chairman, may be informed that printed matter of this character is being for- 
warded direct from Germany to citizens of this country, unsolicited and without 
their request, as propaganda of a nature to breed racial and religious intolerance 
(vol. 2, p. 1178). 

Another step in the activities of the Nazi propaganda machine is 
shown in the interview had with one Karl Neumeister, 1898 Daly 
Avenue, New York City. The investigator for this committee testi- 
fied that he interviewed Neumeister with the following result : 

Neumeister admitted under questioning that he is engaged in spread- 
ing Nazi propaganda. He explained he was doing this kind of work 
because he believed in the principles of Hitlerism. He admitted that 
he goes around checking up on people to whom material of this type 
is mailed from Germany and that he does everything in his power to 
get these people to take more Nazi propaganda and assist in its dis- 
tribution throughout the United States. 

That many Germans living in the United States go abroad and take 
an oath of fealty to the Fuehrer of Germany was shown by evidence 
taken from a German newspaper, Der Montag, published in Berlin, 
under date of August 27, 1938. 

Printing a dispatch from Stuttgart, this newspaper stated: 

Der Treueschwurder vielen tausende Auslandsdeutschen auf den Fuehrer and 
die nationalen Lieder beschlossen die eindrucksvoUe Feierstunde. 

The English translation is : 

The oath to the Fuehrer of the many thousands of Germans living abroad and 
national songs closed the impressive festivities. 

Fifty Americans had taken part in this annual meeting of the 
Auslandsdeutschen Institute according to our testimony. 

Repeatedly we have been told that there is no connection between 
the German- American Bund and the Nazi Government or its political 
subdivisions, repeatedly we have been told that no allegiance to 
Adolf Hitler is required, and yet here we have an officially inspired 
newspaper published in Germany telling us that an oath of fealty 
was taken. 

The newspaper refers to this year's meeting as the Sixth Reich 
Congress of the Germans in Foreign Countries with delegates attend- 
ing from many countries throughout the world, 

GUNS, RIFLE RANGES, ETC. 

Pistol and rifle ranges for all storm troops of the German-American 
Bund were to be set up according to plans formulated at the con- 
vention of the bund, held in New York City in July 1937, according 
to testimony heard by this committee on October 5, 1938. 

Local Nazi units in Philadelphia, Buffalo, Reading, Pa., and Detroit 
have target ranges and the Philadelphia Nazi post uses heavy .22- 
caliber rifles which are cocked like regulation Army guns. 

A target range was set up at Camp Siegfried, Yaphank, Long Island, 
and on one occasion Herman Schwarzmann, head of the ^Astoria, 
Long Island, group, announced that the men were to be "trained to 
shoot and to take care of guns" (vol. 2, pp. 1206 and 1207) . 

A shooting range near CleA^land, Ohio, was also described in our 
records. 



1464 U2s-AMEliICAN PROPAGANDlA. ACTTVITIES 

Bund fuehrers informed storm troops that the various German 
World War veterans in their ranks would train the younger men in 
the use of arms. 

It was also testified to that many of these former German soldiers 
now in the bund storm troops ranks are expert riflemen, gunsmiths, 
and machine gunners. 

Testimony also revealed that bund storm troops join National 
Guard divisions in order to obtain training in the use of various types 
of American Army guns. 

The committee, in addition, heard testimony which revealed that 
less than a year ago German espionage began to make a major effort 
in the United States (vol. 2, pp. 1234 and 1235). 

Within the past year one section of the Gestapo, service section 
No. 2, under the direction of Colonel Nicolai, has added three new 
departments, Nos. 23, 24, and 25, all three specifically devoted to 
espionage in the United States. 

Department 23 specializes in economic espionage — the obtaining of 
American manufacturing and industrial secrets. 

Department 24 specializes in military intelligence. 

Department 25 specializes in Nazi propaganda. 

Of what type this propaganda will be, and how it will affect the 
United States, can be learnecl from pamphlet No. 7 of the Instructions 
for Our Friends Overseas — a small brochure printed in a total edition 
of 500 copies and given only to reliable agents. A short excerpt will 
amply convey the spirit of this "armed propaganda" : 

German propaganda in the United States must be handled more tactfully than 
it has been done before. It will not be possible to subsidize American news- 
papers except in very rare cases — and only newspapers of minor importance. 

The fundamental aim must always be to discredit conditions in the United 
States and thus make life in Germany seem enviable by contrast. It will there- 
fore be to the best interests of the Reich to cooperate secretly with all persons or 
groups who criticize the American system, regardless on what ground. The line 
to be taken in all such cases is to exaggerate the strength of Germany and to 
contrast it with the weakness of democracies. 

In its report to the House of Representatives at the beginning of 
1940, the committee added the following to its findings on the German- 
American Bund : 

Fritz Kuhn, the feuhrer of the German-American Bund, claims 
that his organization is nothing more than a political group whose 
primary purpose is to promote the welfare and best interests of the 
citizens of the United States and to assist in a solution of their prob- 
lems. Testimony before the committee, however, both from hostile 
and friendly witnesses, establishes conclusively that the German- 
American Bund receives its inspiration, program, and direction from 
the Nazi Government of Germany through the various propaganda 
organizations which have been set up by that Government and which 
function under the control and supervision of the Nazi Ministry of 
Propaganda and Enlightenment. 

The bund presently has three major administrative divisions in the 
United States — the eastern, the mid western, and the far western — 
each under the direction of a division leader who takes his orders from 
Fritz Kuhn, the National Feuhrer, There are in the three divisions 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1465 

47 districts and in the districts are a total of 69 local posts or units. 
It has been impossible to accurately determine the extent of the bund's 
membership due to the secrecy with which it operates and the fact that 
all membership lists, correspondence, and other records have been de- 
stroyed by order of the national leader, an admission he made on the 
witness stand to this committee. In the absence of membership lists, 
the committee has had to accept as the best available figure the state- 
ment of Fritz Kuhn concerning the bund's membership. He testified 
that the bund has a membership of approximately 20,000 to 25,000. 
(A Department of Justice investigation made of the bund in 1937 
placed the membership at 6,500.) In addition to the regular member- 
ship, it has what is known as the sympathizer or "fellow traveler" 
group, consisting of those who are sympathetic to the bund but do not 
actively participate in its proceedings. He testified that the sympa- 
thizer group is composed of approximately 80,000 to 100,000 indi- 
viduals. 

It was established that the German- American Bund operating in 
the United States is similar to the Nazi groups which were built up 
in Austria and Czechoslovakia prior to their annexation by Germany. 
The August 31, 1939, issue of the Deutscher Weckruf and Beobachter, 
official newspaper of the bund, printed an article written in German 
under the following title : 

Fritz Kuhn, America's Henlein.^ German-American Bund, the organization of 
which he is the leader, eight to ten thousand uniformed storm troops. The duel, 
Kuhn versus Dewey. 

It was established that the program and the activities of the Ger- 
man-American Bund are similar to Nazi organizations in Germany 
and in other countries. The bund newspaper makes frequent use of 
material emanating from Nazi propaganda sources, such as "World 
Service." The emblem of the National Socialist Party, the swastika, 
also is the emblem of the German-American Bund. 

Fritz Kuhn, in defending the position that the bund is strictly 
an American political organization, claims that members of the bund 
must be American citizens. The following is a quotation from the 
"Weckruf," official organ of the bund, which is illustrative of the 
bund's attitude with reference to citizenship : 

We may have lying in the closet different citizenship papers and yet we are 
all German men and links of a big German community of hundreds of millions. 

In 1936 Fritz Kulin accompanied a large delegation of bund mem- 
bers to Germany ostensibly for the purpose of visiting the Olympic 
games. The group paraded in uniform of the Orderly Division 
(storm troops), and the parade was reviewed by Adolf Hitler. Fol- 
lowing the parade, Fritz Kuhn and other officials of the German- 
American Bund were received by the German Fuehrer, at which time 
they presented him with a golden book containing autographs of 
bund members and delivered to him a contribution of $3,000 for the 
German winter relief fund. This money had been solicited from 
bund members, some of whom, according to Kuhn's testimony, were 
unemployed and on relief. 

In his testimony with reference to the meeting with Hitler, Kuhn 
stated that no report was made by him concerning bund activities 
in the United States and that the subject was not mentioned during 

^ Karl Henlein, the leader of the Nazi minority group in Czechoslovakia before annex- 
ation by Germany. 



1466 un-ame:rican propagandia activities 

the interview. However, the December 10, 1936, issue of the official 
bund newspaper carried an article concerning a speech which Kuhn 
made in San Francisco following his return from Germany. Accord- 
ing to the article, Kuhn stated in his speech that Chancellor Hitler 
advised him, "Go back and carry on your fiirht." 

It was established through the testimony of Fritz Kuhn that the 
bund had worked sympathetically with other organizations through- 
out the United States and cooperates with them. Kuhn testified 
that some of these groups are the Christian Front, the Christian 
Mobilizers, the Christian Crusaders, the Social Justice Society, the 
Silver Shirt Legion of America, the Knights of the White Camellia 
and various Italian Fascist, White Russian, and Ukranian organiza- 
tions. Kuhn testified that some of the leaders of these groups had 
addressed meetings sponsored by the bund and that representatives 
of the bund in turn frequently appeared as speakers at meetings and 
gatherings sponsored by the above-named groups. It was also estab- 
lished that the bund cooperated with some of these organizations and 
their leaders by exchanging literature and publications with them 
and by publishing material emanating from them in the official 
organ of the bund. Numerous articles have appeared in the bund 
newspaper expressing the bund's approval of the activities of the 
organizations already mentioned. The literature put out by the 
various groups and individuals named is distributed or sold at the 
bund camps, meetings, and other gatherings. 

The following excerpt from the testimony of Fritz Kuhn is indica- 
tive of his attitude : 

Mr. Whitley (examining tlie witness). Mr. Kuhn. what are the relations be- 
tween Mr. Joe McWillianis and his Christian Mobilizers and the German- 
American Bund? 

Mr. Kuhn. Tliey are very friendly to each other, because the Christian Front, 
the Christian Mobilizers, really have ideas which we sponsor 100 percent. 

• With reference to the exchange of literature and propaganda ma- 
terial between the bund and various Fascist groups, the committee 
received testimony that the following are standard reading in bund 
camps : Hitler's Mein Kampf , Pelley's booklets and publication. Lib- 
eration, the books of Julius Streicher (German propagandist), and 
the Rev. Charles E. Coughlin's publication, Social Justice. 

The German-American Bund, like the National Socialist Party in 
Germany, pays particular attention to the training of its youth. 
Testimony was heard that members of the youth movement were 
taught nothing concerning American institutions or ideals, and that 
they were encouraged to be extremely critical of the United States 
and its Government. It was also found that the uniforms worn by 
the members of the youth groups, their camps and program of ac- 
tivities were similar in every respect to those of the Hitler youth 
movement, and that the Nazi salute was the accepted gesture of 
greeting. 

It was established that groups of leaders of the German-American 
Bund youth movement are frequently sent to Germany for special 
training. Testimony was received from a witness who was a member 
of a group of 15 boys and 15 girls from various parts of the United 



APPENDIX— PART IV 1467 

States who were selected by the bund to be sent to Germany for special 
training. According to the witness, all instructions concerning ar- 
rangements and the trip came from V. D. A. (League of Germans 
Living Abroad), one of the Nazi propaganda agencies; and all plans 
and arrangements with reference to the trip were carried out with the 
utmost secrecy. 

It was established through the tw^o witnesses, both former bund 
members, that there is a political agent on all German sliips and 
that these political agents maintain contact with the Nazi representa- 
tives in foreign countries. They are intermediaries for transmission 
of instructions to the bund leadei-s in the United States and they 
receive reports from these leaders concerning the bund's activities, 
according to the witnesses. 

A former bund member on the west coast testified that German 
agents engaged in espionage activities, contacted bund leaders in 
the United States and sought and received their cooperation. This 
witness also testified that he had heard discussions among bund 
leaders with reference to the manner in which the bund, through its 
members in various industrial plants, could effectively carry out a 
program of sabotage in case such action became necessai^. 

Evidence was heard by the committee that members of the bund 
had assisted German agents whose arrests were sought by officials 
in the United States in avoiding apprehension and had helped get 
them out of the United States with the cooperation of German ships. 

Evidence also was taken indicating that Nazi propaganda agencies, 
through officials of the German Government in the United States, 
have attempted to propagandize educational institutions in this 
country. It was testified that a German consul general had offered, on 
behalf of the German Government to subsidize German departments 
in American universities provided the professors were "acceptable'' 
to the Nazis. 

C ooperating groups. — The committee has found abundant evidence 
of the cooperation of certain other organizations with the German- 
American Bund. This is a more serious matter than is the direct 
strength or influence of the bund itself. For example, in August 
1938 a so-called anti-Communist convention was held at the bund 
headquarters in Los Angeles at which Hermann Schwinn, leader of 
the bund on the west coast, was one of the principal speakers; and 
Arno Risse, bund leader, who has since fled the country, was one of 
the two or three persons' most active in promoting and making 
arrangements for the convention. According to the testimony of 
Henry D. Allen, one-time Silver Shirt leader, organizer of the 
American White Guard, and prominent figure in Fascist circles gen- 
erally, the following persons participated in this convention : 

Kenneth Alexander, Southern California leader of the Silver Shirts ; 
J. H. Peyton, of the American Rangers ; Chas. B. Hudson, of Omaha, 
Nebr., organizer and leader of Arnerica Awake, who accompanied 
General Moseley when he appeared before the committee ; Mrs. Leslie 
Fry, alias Paquita Louise De Shishmareff, mysterious international 
figure who has since fled the country, then leader of the Militant 
Christian Patriots; representatives of Italian Fascist and Wliite Rus- 



1468 UN-AMEKICAN PROPAGANDiA ACTIVITIES 

sian organizations; and a number of others of similar point of view. 

Bund literature mingled with that of William Dudley Pelley, Robert 
Edmondson, Mrs. Fry, and George Deatherage on the tables of this 
convention. 

It is clear to the committee that this convention was in no real 
sense an anti-Conununist convention but rather another of a series of 
attempts to unite some of the various forces of intolerance, racial 
hatred, Naziism and Fascism in order to achieve greater influence in 
the United States. This effort like others of its kind yielded no 
apparent results. 

Allen further testified that he was sent out by Mrs. Fry on an ex- 
tended trip throughout the country, and that all his expenses were 
paid by Mrs. Fry, but Allen did not know her source of the money. 
During the course of this trip Allen visited George Deatherage, 
leader of the Knights of the White Camellia, James True of Wash- 
ington, D. C, publisher of the so-called Industrial Control Reports, 
Gerald B. Winrod, Kansas preacher, Nazi protagonist, and unsuccess- 
ful candidate for the Senate, Robert Edmondson, disseminator of 
Fascist literature, and Fritz Kuhn. On this same trip Allen went 
to Atlanta, Ga., to attempt to "buy the Ku Klux Klan" for Mrs. Fry 
for the sum of $75,000. He testified that he talked to Hiram W. 
Evans, head of the Klan, but that Evans "was not interested in the 
idea." 

In releasing this report on the activities of Nazi agents in the 
United States the committee wishes to make the emphatic state- 
ment that neither the committee as a whole nor any of its individual 
members entertains the slightest doubt of the unswerving loyalty to 
the United States of our fellow citizens of German descent. In a 
number of cases it was their cooperation which made disclosures of 
bund activities possible. They felt that it was as much in their 
interest as in that of the Nation as a whole that the committee en- 
deavored to bring to light some of the facts concerning the operations 
of Nazi agents and the leaders of the German-American Bund. 

The question of the form of government of the German or any 
other nation is not one that concerns either this committee or the 
American people. But attempts by any foreign agency to influence 
American citizens in favor of a foreign form of government and 
against American democracy is quite a different matter and one con- 
cerning which the Committee on Un-American Activities has imme- 
diate and great concern. 

In its report to the House of Representatives at the beginning of 
1941, the committee called attention to the effectiveness of the method 
of exposure in dealing with an organization such as the German- 
American Bund. The committee said : 

When we began our work, the German-American Bund had a 
hundred thousand followers who were pledged to its fuehrer, Fritz 
Kuhn. The very first exposure which our committee undertook in 
the summer of 1938 was that of the German- American Bund. The 
first volume of our hearings opens with a hundred pages of detailed 
testimony on the un-American and subversive character of the bund. 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1469 

During the past week the committee published a translation of the 
oflScial, confidential Manual of the Storm Troopers of the German- 
American Bund. That document proves conclusively that the German- 
American Bund is an organization which is highly militarized, and 
which requires absolute loyalty on the part of its members. 

Today Fritz Kuhn is in Sing Sing prison and the German-American 
Bund has been thoroughly discredited. James Wheeler-Hill, former 
secretary-treasurer of the bund, is also in prison. Our exposures 
have provided thousands of innocent people with adequate protection 
against the false claims of the bund. Its drastically reduced mem- 
bership and follow^ing may now be held to consist only of those whose 
loyalty is to Hitler. 

When we began our work, the bund and a score of Nazi-minded 
American groups were laying plans for an impressive united front 
federation — a federation which would be able to launch a first-rate 
Nazi movement in the United States. By our exposure of these plans, 
we smashed that Nazi movement even before it was able to get under 
wav.

and rank insignia 

Rules For the Conduct of Meetings and the Celebration of Festtvals 

UNIT order LISTS WITH DESCRIPTIONS AND SAMPLES 

The Unii The Branch 

OF THE German-American Bund 

To the Unit Leader/ Branch Leader/of Bund Member 

Address 

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS FOB UNIT AND BRANCH DIRECTORATES 

(1) The Unit/the Branch/ is number (command 

number) and is a part of Section No , District No , 

Region No , and Department No 

(2) Your Section leader is Bund Member , 

telephone , address . Your Depart- 
ment Leader is Bund member , telephone , 

address 

Our Bund Fuehrer is Bund member Fritz Kuhn, Address : Fritz Kuhu, 
German American Bund, P. O. Box #1, Station "K," New York, N. Y. 

(3) Mail for the National Executive Committee but not for the Bund Fuehrer 
personally, (new applications, settlements, orders, and (official communications 
intended only for some particular office of the National Executive Committee), 
should be addressed to the German-American Bund (office) P. O. Box #1, Sta- 
tion "K," New York, N. Y. 

Each dilferent type of inquiry, "settlement, or order should be submitted under 
separate cover, the combining of different types of questions, etc., in one and the 
same letter causes much needless work and considerable delay in replying ; since 
not all problems are handled in the same office and such a letter must be trans- 
mitted from one office to another. 

(4) Cheeks and Money Orders should be made payable to : German American 
Bund, except for payments to the "Weckruf" (the Call) or to the DKV. (Ger- 
man Consumers League) 

Checks, remittances, reports, notices, and subscriptions for the "Weckruf" 
should be sent to 

Checks and other mailable matter for the German Consumers' League should 
be mailed to 

(5) Except in the case of the address of the National Executive Committee and 
the "Weckruf" all names and addresses of Bund members and officers must be 
kept confidential and must not be divulged to anyone. Where units and branches 
begin to operate publicly they must rent a P. O. Lock B(jx under the name 
"AVAU" ; such an address may be made public without exposing the office or 
the address of the officer to the general public. 

(6) MEMBERSHIP. DUES. PERSONNEL RECORDS 

(a). New admissions of Bund members : Newly proposed Bund members (BMR) 
are considered merely as candidates for membership until they have been obligated 
at a member meeting and have received their membership cards. This cannot be 
done until a period of four weeks has elapsed. 

During the period of candidacy three investigators appointed by the Unit-Branch 
inquire into the accuracy of the candidate's personal declarations (address, pass- 
port, citizenship papers, sureties, etc.) In addition, the associational or lodge 
affiliations and degrees of the candidate must be ascertained. 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1491 

Membership cards must not be sent to candidates through the mails but must be 
l^resented to them ceremonially at a member meeting as provided under "Regula- 
tions for meetings" and "festival celebrations". (Registration.) 

(b) Enrolling of Patrons: It is not necessary to investigate the loersonal dec- 
larations of patrons, since they are not members and are not admitted to number 
meetings. Patrons' cards are mailed to them. 

(c) New admissions of Youth Command Members: Youth Command Member- 
ship cards are presented ceremonially to Youth Command members (JMR) at a 
meeting of the Youth Unit Command by the Youth Unit Commander. 

(d) Acceptance of Youth Command Members into full AV Membership: Youth 
Command Members (JMR) who have reached the age of acceptance receive their 
Bund membership cards as described in the foregoing, without being subjected to 
the delay required of candidates and without an investigation of their personal 
declarations. 

(e) Member, Patron and Youth Command Acceptance Certificates : New accept- 
ance (admission) certificates for Bund members and patrons, according to form, 
and filled out legibly with a typewriter or in ink and undersigned (subscribed) by 
the Unit, or, Brancli leader are to be transmitted to tile National Executive Com- 
mittee acct)mpanied by an admission fee of $1.00 and half the voluntary xiropa- 
ganda contribution after the unit and branch directorates have recorded the per- 
sonal declarations of the new Bund members in duplicate upon personal (per- 
sonnel) cards provided for the purjiose. (Explanation of personal, (personnel 
record) cards under "h") . One card is retained by the Unit or Branch ; the second 
is transmitted to the National Executive Committee with the certificate of admis- 
sion (acceptance). 

Youtli Command admission (acceptance) certificates, undersigned by the Unit 
or Branch leader are to be transmitted to the National Youth Command with an 
admission fee of 200 and a Youth Personal (Personnel) Record. Tlie second 
(duplicate) Youth Personnel Record Card is retained by the Unit or Branch. 

(f) Requirements for Admission: Consult the text of the different certificates 
of admission. 

(g) Dues. The monthly member or patron dues for men and independent 
women Bmid members or patrons are 750. Of this sum, 25^ are to be sent to the 
National Executive Committee with the monthly settlement, and .j0 to the Depart- 
ment Directorate ; 4.'50 are retained by the Unit or the Branch. 

The Unit or Branch leader may reduce the monthly dues of a needy Bund mem- 
ber to a minimum of 300, which must be accounted for (for which settlement 
must be made). In special cases this minimum should be paid by the fellowship 
( Kameradschaf t ) . 

Married women and unemployed adult women members of Bund members' 
1'amilies and members of their household pay 300 monthly as Bund members or 
patrons, of which only the 250 for National Executive Committee must be 
accounted for. 

Youth Command Members pay maximum monthly dues of 200, of which 100 
rnnst be transmitted to the National Youth Command with the monthly Youth 
Command settlement. The remaining 100 are retained by the Unit or Branch 
Treasury. Youth fuehrers (male) who have completed their eighteenth year, 
and youth fuehrers (female) who have completed their twenty-first year do not 
pay Youth Command dues but are full Bund members. The obligation of the 
Units or Branches to contribute to the Department, Bund, and National Youth 
treasurer is not determined by the punctuality of payment of Bund members, 
Patrons, or Y'outh Command members, but by the appearance of the respective 
names on the Bund members, patron, or I'outh (Jommand registers (lists). 

(h) Record Cards (Karteikarten) : Record cards containing personal infor- 
mation about friends, enemies, merchants, politicians, association officers, and 
similar persons whom we should know are to be made out in duplicate exactly 
as are those for members, patrons, and Y'outh Command members, and sub- 
mitted monthly: one card is to be retained by the Unit or Branch Directorate; 
(lie other is to be sent to the National Executive Committee. 

A white card printed in black is provided for German-speaking Bund mem- 
bers ; and a similar one, printed in red, is for English speaking Bund members. 
The same kind of cards but bearing a star at the top, are for patrons. 

IMembership and patron cards bearing a red stripe are to be used for Bund 
members and patrons who have withdrawn voluntarily. But they must always 
show the reason as, for example, "loss of interest", "gone to Germany", etc. 
"Those cards must not be used for excluded Bund members (BMR). •

(7) ACTIVITIES EB^'ORTS. WOEK PLANS 

(a) A brief, factual, activities report on the work of a preceding month is to 
be prepared monthly as well, also, as an activities plan for the two months 
next ensureing. Reports and suggestions are to be organized as follows : 

1. Member meetings. 

2. Public Speaking Evenings. 

3. Fellowship Evenings (Kemeradschaft). 

4. Motion Picture or other Cultural Evenings. 

5. Celebrations. 

6. Programs in Camps or National homes, 

7. Participation in the programs of other organizations. 

8. Branch Meetings (OD Youth, Women). 

9. Miscellaneous (parades, propaganda). 

(b) A copy of the activities reports and plans is to be sent to the qualified 
Section and Department Directorates and to the National Executive Council. 

(8) OFFICE SUPPLIES. PRINTED MATTER. FLAGS 

The necessary printed matter, forms, certificates, cash-books, seals, insignia, 
flags, etc. may be requisitioned from the National Executive Committee under 
the tenns of the enclosed order list. 

(9) FUEHRER PRINCIPLES. ELECTIONS. APPOINTMENTS AND REMOVALS 

(a) The AV is conducted upon the fuehrer principle. Consequently there are 
no elections nor majority resolutions (decisions) except as provided under (b) 
and (c). 

(b) At the January member meeting the annual secret election is held under 
the supervision of the qualified Department leader or his deputy. All attendent 
Bund members who are not in arrears may participate in the election by a vote 
of "Yea" or "Nay" ("Ja" order "Nein"), according to whether or not they are 
in agreement with (approve of) the conduct (management) of their Unit- 
Branch leader. Unmarked ballots are counted as "Yea". If more than one- 
third of the ballots cast are "Noes" the Unit-Branch leader is replaced by 
another by the Department leader according to regulations. 

(c) At the final member meeting before the annual National Convention, the 
Unit-Branch leader proposes (nominates) members of his Unit (Branch) as 
delegates to the Convention. He should, if he is not indispensible, be a delegate 
himself, the remaining delegates should at least be officers. 

The number of delegates is fixed by Bund orders and depends upon the 
numerical strength of the Unit (Branch. At this member meeting the Unit- 
Branch leader holds an election for the delegates. Only those candidates who 
receive at least a two-thirds vote are chosen. 

(d) In all other matters of an official nature the Unit-Branch leader makes 
the final decision, naturally in conformity with the regulations of his superior. 

He, himself, receives his commission from his Department leader with the 
approval of the Bund fuehrer. 

The Unit-Branch leader appoints his officers with the approval of the De- 
partment leader. (Youth fuehrers are appointed with the approval of the 
National Youth Fuehrer, and OD Fuehrers with the approval of the National 
OD Fuehrer). Even in connection with these appointments the qualified De- 



APPENDIX PART IV 1493 

partment leader is notified opportunely of every contemplated appointment. 
The Unit-Branch leader may remove his officers under the same circumstances. 

To resign voluntarily from office constitutes evasion of duty, he who would 
relinquish his office honorably first makes application to his superior to be 
relieved of the duties of office, recommends a potential successor, and continues 
to perform his duties until his application is accepted. 

Appointments : The Unit-Branch leader fills out a commission according to 
the following form for his officers and sends it with a copy for approval to the 
Department leader, or the National Youth Fuehrer or to the National OD Fuehrer.

[seal] - [seal] 

Until approved by the Department leader, the National OD Fuehrer or the 
National Youth Fuehrer all such appointments are merely provisional and all 
removals merely furloughs (suspensions?). 

Members of secret societies (lodges, etc.) are not eligible to become officers or 
auditors. 

Consequently all responsibility is at the top and every officer holds his office 
solely as the deputy of his superior. But it must be understood that true fuehrer- 
ship is constructed not upon "cadaver" — like submissiveness but rather upon 
confidence and voluntary allegiance : A superior should strive to stimulate the 
spirit and joy of initiative and of service among his Kamerads by a constant 
readiness to listen to their suggestions and to assure to them that authority 
within their respective spheres which their responsibilities entail. 

But title hunters who aspire to power while shirking responsibility he should 
not tolerate. The secret of the fighting strength of the movement lies in the 
principle of Fuehrership, the utilization of which makes it possible to impose 
responsibility upon some particular individual for every transaction and which 
excludes concealment behind anonymous majorities. In tlie filling of offices and 
the performance of Bund duties no fraternal chicanery may be permitted to 
intrude. 

(10) DEVELOPMENT OF THE UNIT, BRANCHES AND SUBORDINATE COMMANDS 

(a) (For Units and small Branches). For the present hold only closed, un- 
pretentious meetings at which only Bund members and dependable acquaintences 
are present in order that the outward battle may not begin until your group is 
ready to take it up. You will find that the necessary internal endowment and 
solidity combined with mouth to mouth propaganda and aided by means of leaflets 
or letters, even without public activity, is valuable, and yields rich rewards. 
A precipitious procedure could destroy your branch. 

The time for the public appearance of your group will be determined by the 
Unit-leader under whose supervision you exist as a Branch leader or by yourself 
when your Branch has been declared to be a Unit. 

(b) For Branches: First of all, appoint a Treasurer, an OD Fuehrer, and a 
Public Relations leader. You may appoint additional officers when you are ready 
to assume additional duties. 



1494 U'N-AMEKICAN PROr»AGA:XDiA ACTIVITIES 

Even though the importance of a uniformed, strictly disciplined OD unit may 
not be apparent at once to a new, small Branch we are constrained to observe 
after long experience that for the results we have obtained thus far we are 
indebted first and above all else to the existence of the OD, that has ubiquitously 
borne the chief burden of the practical work, and that without this service the 
Bund would not have been able to withstand several crisis. Even though the 
officer and the OD man may not often be able to appear publicly in uniform in 
their own small communities they should attend this important school neverthe- 
less. In every one of even the smallest branches, therefore, an OD Unit iinques- 
tionably should be established, for by no other means and is it possible to secure 
for the Bund this most valuable support of discipline, preparedness and 
Kameradship. 

See separately Issued OD Service Regulations. 

(c) Rally the children of German descent! Organize a Youth Command 
regardless of how small your beginning may be. Open a language school or 
strive unceasingly to establish and promote a philosophical (weltanschanlich) 
German program in existing German schools. Distribute the periodical "Junges 
Volk." 

See Youth Command Regulations issued separately. 

(d) Try to have the German, pro-German (deutschfreundlich), and non- 
Jewish commercial enterprises of your neighborhood join the German Consumers' 
League (DKV), the economic organization of the Bund. See Officer Regulations 
under Economics Director. 

(e) Send clippings of all local press notices that might be of interest in our 
fight in quadruplicate to the Department Directorate and to the National Execu- 
tive Committee. See Officer Regulations under Information Director. 

(f ) Note the provisions under Meeting Regulations and Celebrations. Use the 
Information Service letters of the National Executive Committee for short pre- 
sentations on Public Speaking Evenings. 

Distribute the most important single arm of the movement, the "Weckruf" 
(The Call). 

In all things conduct yourself according to the following guiding principles, 
(the only principles) by which the preservation of Germanic America can be 
effected : 

The philosophical, political, and economic direction (Fuehrung) of Germanic 
America and the philosophical, political, education (rearing) of the youth of 
Germanic America is the concern of the German-American Bund and its branches 
alone (exclusively). In these spheres there is no place for illicit loves (para- 
mours may not be recognized). Other organizations are to be treated accordins: 
to their acceptance of these principles. 

Part II 

RULES FOR MEETIXGS 

All public affairs, public speaking evenings, Kameradship evenings, etc., as well 
as all member meetings and other official appearances of the AV or its bi'anches 
have at least one official (business) part that must be conducted in conformity 
With the following provisions, except where, under "Celebrations," exceptions 
have been noted or where they may be permitted by the National Executive 
Committee in writing. 

It must be understood that these provisions constitute merely a desirable 
model and need be followed merely to the extent that circumstances may permit. 
The extent to which they ma.v be adaptable to the different meetings and celebra- 
tions is explained under "Celebration Programs" ("Festfolgegestaltung). 

These provisions do not apply to the conduct of the "German Consumers League" 
(DKV), The Newspaper Corporation, or the Settlement Associations. 

(A) All in official attendance upon meetings wear the uniform of their service. 

(B) The Chairman of the meeting is the qualified official. (Bund Fuehrer, 
Department leader. Regional leader, District leader. Section leader, Unit leader, 
Branch leader. Cell leader. Block leader, or his representative.) 

(C) The official meeting begins with the first stanza of the National Anthem of 
the United States, "The Star Spangled Banner." The Chairman and all in 
official attendance face the audience. The anthem is announced only by the 
musical note by which it is recognized ; the entire audience rises at once without 
request and sings. Those in uniform salute with their right hands at their caps, 
those not in uniform stand erect with their hands at their sides. 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1495 

(D) At Member meetings aud at certain celebrations a text is road immedi- 
ately after the signing of the National anthem while the audience stands, as 
follows: "Our meeting today (to be stated) is based upon the following text taken 

from (speech or book) : (text) 'Free America'! At the closing, 'Free 

America !', by the Chairm'an, the audience responds, and all not on duty take 
seats. At meetings at which the reading of a text is omitted, the Chairman says 
merely 'Free America !' The Text chosen for a particular period is announced 
by the National Executive Committee." 

(E) Then follows the greeting and a brief statement of the purpose of the 
meeting; the Chairman is not supposed to anticipate the remarks of the speaker 
selected for the occasion. 

Speakers are introduced briefly as they arise, by stating their rank, place of 
service, name, and the subject of their address ; although the audience should 
be given all necessary information about the speaker, all fraternal flattery is abso- 
lutely prohibited. Groups are presented either by their group designations or 
by the rank and name of their leader. 

Any comments about speakers at the conclusion of their remarks must be brief, 
simple and truthful : Expressions of thanks are to be reserved for non-members 
and should not be extravagant. In greeting (or welcoming) the salutation. 
"Ladies and Gentlemen" should be avoided (omitted) disciplinary reasons. Bund 
members and guests of German nationality are not to be introduced as Mister 
("Herr") but as "Bund member" or "fellow-countryman" (Volksgenosse). The 
term "Mister" ("Herr") is to be applied only to persons not of German descent. 

(F) The official conclusion consists of the erstwhile prescribed closing song 
and "Free America." which follows immediately. Flag retirements follow "Free 
America." The concluding "Free America" never must be omitted at any meeting ; 
and during its recital all standards must be at the front. 

The Chairman announces the conclusion as follows : "We shall now close our 

(the official part of ) with the (song) 

'. No long-winded exhortations to rise, etc. The musical note 

is struck, and all rise and sing while giving the official salute. The Chairman and 
all officiating personnel stand in front of and face the audience. For information 
concerning the salute see OD Service Regulations, p. 15, under "Official Salute". 

Immediately upon the conclusion of the closing song and before he (as the 
audience) has lowered his arm the Chairman recites 'Free America'! as follows: 
"To a free. Gentile-ruled United States and to our fighting Movement of awakened 
Aryan Americans, a three-fold, rousing, 'Free America !' 'Free-America !' 'Free- 
America !'." The audience repeats the word 'America' after the Chairman, and 
arms are lowered after the third repetition. The salute is concluded by bringing 
the right hand to the left breast and then lowering it to the side. The English 
conclusion is used onlv at meetings conducted entirely in English. 

(G) General: 

(G 1) American and Bund flags occupy the place of honor at all meetings, 
except as otherwise provided under "Celebrations program" ; they should be 0I> 
standards. Standards are never hung but must always be kept on staffs and 
set-up by uniformed OD guards. 

(G 2) In the decorating of auditoriums all "tricky", fraternity "stuff" is to 
be avoided. Flags and more flags, arms, shields with battlecries, swastika 
(Hakenkrenze) and Bund emblems, living green ; the colors red, gold, white, green 
«iid blue preferred. Simple, dignified decorum. At the celebration for the estab- 
lishment of the Reich and Adolf-Hitler Birthday Celebrations, pictures or busts 
of Hitler ; at George Washington Birthday celebrations and American Independ- 
ence Day celebi'ations pictures or busts of Washington. 

(G3) Smoking and drinking are prohibited during the business part of all 
meetings. At long celebrations refreshment pauses may be provided. 

(G4) All flag drills must be held immediately before the singing of the Amer- 
ican National Anthem, in order that the flags may he at the front during the 
singing of this song. During long celebrations all (members of the drill team) 
but the color guard may retire, to return again at the conclusion. 

The retiring of the standards follows immediately after the conclusion. When 
the Bund fuehrer or one of his proxies speaks all participating uniformed branches 
stand during his address. 

(G5) During the visits (presence) of representatives of a higher ranking 
officer, the officer in charge must provide these visitors with orderlies and guards. 
In addition seats must be reserved for them to which they must be conducted 
immediately before the beginning of the official part of the program. When the 
Bundfuehrer appears the OD forms in line. 



1496 UN-AMEHICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

If the Bund Fuehrer or his representative appears during a meeting, the Com- 
mand "Attention" is given, and the program is interrupted in order to welcome 
(greet) him. 

When the Bund Fuehrer or his representative appears as the spealier no one 
will follow him, except the Chairman, who will close the meeting. 

(G6) When a representative of the Reich speaks at a celebration, the German 
national anthem is to be played immediately after his address. But if (accord- 
ing to regulations) the closing song of the particular celebration should be the 
German national anthem, then the Bund Propaganda song is to be substituted 
for it as the closing song. When representatives of nations other than America 
are present in their representative capacity the National anthem of their country 
is played immediately after their address. 

(G7) Dancing is permissible in connection with all celebrations except at 
memorials, etc. See "Rules for Celebrations" Programs should be arranged so 
that after the official part at least two or more hours may be devoted to dancing 
before the legal closing hour. The accompanying dance, provided "Jazz" is pro- 
hibited, is a permissible attraction throughout. 

(G8) Booktable, "Weckruff" and oi-der blanks, Youth literature, propaganda 
literature, and certificates of admission should never be omitted at a public 
meeting. 

Festival (Celebration) Programs 

The following provisions are intended to supplement the regulations under 
"Meeting Regulations". Except for the changes effected by the written orders 
of the National Executive Committee all official meetings and celebrations of the 
AV and its branches are to be conducted strictly in accordance with the appro- 
priate provisions of the following regulations so far as circumstances may permit. 
Exceptions : Programs of the DKV, the Newspaper Corporation and the Settle- 
ment Associations intended for their own development, even though having a 
philosophical (weltanschaulich) aspect. 

(1) BIXECUTIVB MEETINGS, FUEHRER CONFERENCES 

Meeting regulations. Executives (officers) or associates or subordinate fueh- 
rers submit reports on their activities and are given instructions for future work. 
The Chairman should urge constant criticism, advice, and suggestions and con- 
stantly stimulate his associates to independent thought and action, ever mindful 
of the fact that every proper fighter renders more, and more willing, work when 
he has been given the autliority and the freedom of action which his responsibility 
necessitates. And every associate must be conscious of the fact that he is 
responsible neither to his Kamerads nor to the public, but only to his superior, 
and that in any given case he must conduct himself strictly in accordance with 
the decisions of his superior. 

(2) MEErrlNGS AND "HOME EVENINGS" OF THE BRANCHES 

Consult OD Servipe Regulations, Youth Command Regulations, Women's Divi- 
sion Regulations. 

The most important essential of profitable activity and in the removal of 
misunderstanding, suspicion, and discord between the different branches is the 
restriction of each branch to its own domain. At meetings of the OD only OD 
matters should be discussed ; at Women's Division meetings only matters affecting 
Women ; and at Youth meetings only matters affecting youth, should be considered. 

If Fuehrers (men or women) of any branch desire to have proposals, criticisms, 
or complaints concerning other branches considered, they should call on the 
qualified fuehrer of the Branch affected and not on other associates of their own 
Branch, or, indeed, upon the general membership. 

(3) MEMBEai MEETINGS 

A, B, C, D, E, F, and G as under "Meeting Regulations". Only Bund members 
(BMR) and Youth Command members (JMR), with their membership cards as 
evidence, who are not in arrears, are admitted. Patrons are not admitted. Can- 
didates for membership whose membership cards have reached the Unit from 
the National Executive Committee should be provided in advance with a written 
invitation, wliich will admit them for the purpose of acceptance (into the Bund). 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1497 

All purticipants are on duty and consequently wear uniforms and insignia. OD 
standards in front. Officers in front, facing the audience. Uniformed personnel 
advance at the opening and do not withdraw to take their places until they 
have been inspected and ordered to do so by the commanding officer. I'rocedure : 
Before opening, payment of dues, entry on the "present list" (roll). After the 
reading of the text and the welcome, inspection of uniformed branches ; report of 
officers ; strictly in accordance with the previously received instructions of a 
Chief Executive the reading of certain portions of Bund orders currently received 
and intended only for the ears of the membership ; discussion of the work of the 
past period, and informating concerning the distribution of the work of existing 
projects and meetings ; discussion of proposals and criticisms by members ; and 
in conclusion obligating of New BMR. (Bund Members) and the ceremonial 
installation of new officers. 

Registers (rolls) never are read and in no other way is the audience to be 
given any information concerning the numerical strength of any Unit. The 
regularity of the treasury conduct is to be certified to the membership quarterly 
by accounts-and-treasury (book and treasury) auditors appointed by the Chief 
Executive and bound to secrecy except to their superiors, but no detailed in- 
formation concerning the financial status of the Unit is to be given to the 
membership. This is necessary because luifortunately no member assembly is 
actually a closed meeting from which nothing reaches the general public and 
because the financial or other strength or weakness of a Unit is not a public 
matter. 

Executives and officers never should assail or criticize one another in the 
presence of the membership. Differences of opinion which cannot be adjusted 
within administrative circles must be fought out at the top ; externally and 
below there must be absolute unanimity between administration and executives. 

Discussion in the member meeting is based upon the request of the Chief 
Officer for criticisms of past performances and activities and for suggestions 
concerning prospective meetings and undertakings. The practice of criticising 
persons and the preferment of complaints has no place at meetings and is to 
be prohibited. Such criticism must be presented to the qualified officer of Chief 
orally or in writing without drawing the general membership into sympathy; 
complaints must be adjudicated officially. (See Officer Regulations and statutes 
of the AV). Arguments or other characteristics of a parliamentary Jewish 
school ("Polish diet," "hell broke loose") have no place in a member meeting. 
The confidential (secret) voting (elections) in January and prior to the Na- 
tional Convention must be the only deviations from a strictly disciplined muster. 

If an excess of suggestions and criticisms from otherwise indifferent Bund 
members (BMR) develops meetings it can be brought to an end most quickly 
by calling upon these Bund members (BMR) to take hold immediately of the 
problem themselves in order that through diligent cooperation they may first 
win the light to become bombastic critics. 

We need to learn from the conclusive experiences of those Units that never 
have permitted boasted liberalism to develop and therefore have been able best 
to withstand the severest tests of our movement. 

The obligating of new Bund members (BMR) proceeds as follows: 

The standard bearers aline themselves on the right and left of the Officer 
(The American flag on the right of the Officer with the front toward the 
audience) and the Treasurer gives him (the officer) the membership cards. 
The candidates are requested to step forward and stand in front of the officer 
facing the audience. The officer presents the candidates to the membership and 
asks if there be (are) any objections to the acceptance of any one of the 
proposed candidates, in order, in a given case, to postpone a challenged ac- 
ceptance until after investigation. The candidates face the Officer, who ex- 
plains to them briefly the principles of the Movement. He thou proceeds from 
one to the other, addresses each by name, requests of them the pledge (no oath) 
to obey the regulations of the Bund according to their duty as Bund members 
(BMR), (Whereupon they answer "Yes"), gives them their membership cards 
and the regulations of the Bund extends them his hand and greets them as 
new Kamerads with 'Free America", and the official salute, which they repeat 
after him. 

The meeting is closed immediately after the new Bund members (BMR) have 
been obligated. Closing song: The Bund Pi'opaganda song. (Candidates who for 
weighty reasons prefer to remain xmknown need not to accepted (admitted) 
publicly: but in such cases the investigation before final acceptance must be 
conducted with particular thoroughness. 



1498 UX-AMERICAN PROPAGAXDA ACTIVI'TIES 

Installation of new officers takes place befoi'e the obligating of new Bund 
members (BMR). (See Officer regulations.) 

At the close of the meeting Kameradly "get-together" and the singing of 
camp songs. 

(4) EDUCATIONAL AND SPEAKING EVENINGS 

A, B, C, D, E, F, and G, as under "Meeting Regulations." Standards in front. 
Chairman and Speaker in front, facing the audience. Book-table, information 
and application table. Chairs in rows, seat at tables. Speaking Evenings are 
intended for the general public. Addresses and presentations to be simple (easily 
understood) not too deep nor too numerous. All presentations to be directed 
toward a central theme. One or two languages. The language meetings begin 
in English and close in German with a brief intermission between parts in order 
that persons unable to speak German may have an opportunity to leave. 

Educational evenings to present an educational atmosphere ; audience to be 
inspired, "essential points to be transcribed." References to appropriate liter- 
ature. 

At both meetings stimulate questions of a philosophical (weltanschaulich) 
political nature. Educational evenings may be combined with Member meetings 
or Branch musters. Closing song: English stanza of the Bund .song. (Salute 
while singing). 

(5) MOTION PICTURES AND STAGE PROGRAMS, CHAMBEK-MUSIC, LITERARY AND OTHER 

PURELY CULTURAL EVENINGS 

B, C, E, F, and G as under "Meeting Regulations." A not required. D may be 
omitted down to the Welcome. No standards. American and Bund flags. Official 
conclusion matter of choice or according to the cultural presentation. Closing 
song: Engli.sh stanza of the Bund song (salute) Accompanying dance permissible. 

Cultural or Propaganda Evenings under cover titles or without the official part 
may be held only under special, written permission of the Department Directorate. 

(6) KAMEEADSHIP E\T:NINGS 

A, B, C, D, E, F, and G as under "Meeting Regulations." D is omitted down to 
the welcome. The official part constitutes the beginning and should be very brief ; 
the Kameradshaft evening proper follows iunnediately after the closing "Free 
America" ! The official part consequently consists of the usual singing, welcome, 
statement of purpose, and conclusion. Closing song: English stanza of the Bund 
song (accompanied by salute). Standards front during the official part. 

Kameradship evenings should be held by those branches for which in any given 
case it is necessary to propagandize ; and when possible the chairmanship is turned 
over to the Fueherer (man or woman) of such branch. But such evenings may 
be held also as manifestations of the solidarity of the movement by the Units (of 
the Department) under the direction of some particular branch. American and 
Bund flags as decorative flags. 

Neither at Kameradship evenings nor at any other time may there be any stage 
presentation that may be designated as tending to ridicule or traduce (defame) 
any religious faith ; for to attack us on this ground is the favorite pursuit of our 
opponents. 

And it must be observed strictly that national anthems and other ceremonial, 
national songs are not to be sung at the bar (beer-table) and they must not be 
used as dance tunes. 

(7) PROPAGANDA EVENINGS 

As under (4). (5) or (6) according to circumstances. The purpose of the Prop- 
aganda Evenings is not merely to explain generalities in broad outlines, to indoc- 
trinate the initiate, or to sei've our nationality by cultural offerings, but above all 
to induce non-member fellow-countrymen, who have been solicited, to Ijoin. 

(8) CONSECR.\TIOX OF FLAGS. ANNIVERSARIES (FOT'NDATION CELEBRATION) 

A, B, C, D, E, F, and G as under "Meeting Regulations". They nuist be strictly 
ceremonial and martial, without pretentiousness. Martial spirit. German or

ble parade of colors with cooperation of other Units and organizations. Brass 
band, chairs in rows, not at tables. American and Bund flags as decorative flags. 



APPENDIX^ — PART IV 1499 

Foundation celebrations of the Bund are not "Anniversaries" (Stiftungsfeste) ! 
At flag consecrations all cultural offerings occur in the first part, while the actual 
consecration ceremony constitutes the principal part and the close. At the con- 
secration all advance. The flags to be consecrated are covered (veiled) carried 
to the stage by a qualilied oflicer accompanied by an OD detail, consecrated by 
the Bund Fuehrer or his proxy and turned over to the color guard. During con- 
secration the soft music, to accompany the Star Spangled Banner or the Bund

effect. No weepy, weak celebration with a depressive psychology. At the roll

ing song: The Bund Propaganda song (salute dui'ing last stanza). 

No proceedings or speeches indicative of any particular faith ; but likewise 
no ridicule of any particular creed. Accompanying dance permissible. 

Significance of the Winter-Solstice Celebration : (Gratitude to the Almighty for 
the proclaimed return of the life-giving sun. Gratitude for the victory of light 
over darkness ; of life over death. Rededication to the continuation of the 
battle of Good over Evil ; of the Gentile spirit, the spirit of the affirmation of 
life and ennobling exaltation, over the Jewish spirit of life negation, red de- 
struction and the enslavement of Gold. Confession of nationality. 

Significance of the Summer-Solstice Celebration : Gratitude for vitality (vigor) 
symbolized in sun and fire, which the continuation of the purifying battle has 
made possible. Renewal of pledges through approaching difficult and dark 
times.

APPENDIX — PART IV 1501 

forest ; decorations of swastika, blue candles and evergreens with glittering 
snow, lametta, and white candles. Principal trees should not be brightly trimmed, 
except at the tip: swastika or blue caudles. White-covered tables in the 
auditorium, with evergreens and blue or red candles. Distribution of chil- 
dren's presents on the stage. Adults to be served with coffee and cake. Santa 
Glaus (Christmas man) and the singing of Christmas carols permissible. No 
reading of scriptural passages ; no manger performances etc ; nothing that could 
be considered as symbolic of any particular creed ; leave religious celebrations 
to the churches. Speeches and otlier presentations should tend to explain the 
symbol of the celebration in reference to the signilicance of the Winter solstice, 
proclaiming the beginning of a new existence after the death of Winter and 
evoking the joy of giving, especially to youth. The swastika (Hakenkreuz) 
is symbolic of the will of the Gentile to live ; the blue candles are symbolic of 
the coramounity of all Germania at Christmas. 

Distribution of baskets of food, and certificates for coal, to the needy; but 
names of recipients of aid must not be read nor disclosed in any other way. 
Christmas "market", lottery, auction, etc., and accompanying dance permissive ; 
but during the official part the spirit of the celebration must not be disturbed 
by the details of these matters. 
Closing song: The Bund song. (Salute during last stanza). 

(16) PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAMS OF OTHER ORGANIZATIONS 

Official participation is permissible only where Bund uniforms and Standards 
or a Bund speaker are admitted and where our sacred symbols and principles 
are respected; at German organizations only if (1) superiors attend, and (2) 
at every program at which ice display German flags and at which ive would sing 
the German National anthem, they do likewise. 

If at any program, at which the AV or one of its branches or subordinate 
units participates or is a guest, fighting Germania, its Fuehrer, or the old home 
is offended by a responsible official or from the stage, all Bund members (BMR) 
must at once leave the program under all circumstances except where a quali- 
fied Officer or Executive is present and commands a different course that would 
constitute an equally apparent protest. 

"Weckruf", Youth periodicals, and other Public Relations Materials must be 
distributed at every opportunity. Wherever permissible the book table should 
be set up. 

The constant first thought must be that strength, time, and money must serve 
the Movement and its members first of all, constantly and everywhere and that 
they may not be inconsiderately dissipated by filling the halls of universal 
organizations. Wherever the cause of the Bund is served, assistance may be 
rendered, but where such assistance would tend to contribute to the dismember- 
ment of Germania, while little, moth-eaten organizations incapable of independ- 
ent existence and consequently underserving of further existence might be 
artificially kept alive by such assistance, it must be refused.

pendent, aryau-governed United States of North America. 

In order that this movement, as the final refuge of Germanism in America, 
may make the necessary unchallenged Fuehrer pretensions to every vital 
aspect of American Germanism it is his duty to provide for the consideration, 
the promotion, and the preservation of the vitally significant educational, 
political, economic, scientific, and purely cultural achievements of all 
branches, estates, and confessions of faith of this Germanism in the Bund. 
For the protection of the movement the Bund Fuehrer must be able to 
maintain the constant support of at least three Bund officers. This Bund 
administration has the power by unanimous vote, to call a National Con- 
vention for the purpose of hearing any charges which it might prefer against 
the Bund Fuehrer. 

In all other matters the will of the Fuehrer as the solely responsible 
Fuehrer of the Bund, the (services) branches, and the subordinate organiza- 
tions, is the first law of the movement except during a session of the National 
Convention. The Bund Fuehrer is responsible only to the National Con- 
vention, is subject to only a few rules of the Convention, and can be removed 
from his office only by the Convention. 

During the term for which he is chosen by the Convention he makes the 
final, definitive decision in every issue affecting the movement in any way ; 
he has full power of disposal and ownership over the Bund, its equipment, 
its estates, and its monetary and other possessions. 

Until confirmation by the Bund Fuehrer, which requires his countersigna- 
ture to respective membership cards, every new applicant for membership is 
only a candidate. The Bund Fuehrer has the power to refuse acceptance 
into the movement (admission to the movement) without cause. In addition 
he has the power to overrule any commission of investigation or conciliation 
(adjustment) and to dismiss (suspend) any member, relieve him of his 
duties, or finally, to exclude him from the movement. 

Generally, within the foregoing limits, he appoints and removes all Bund 
executives, including the area leaders. The executive appointments and 
removals, as well as all the orders, of all Bund departmental chiefs and area 
leaders require the approval of the Bund Fuehrer for Bund validity. 

Only the Bund Fuehrer is authorized to make statements or to enter into 
negotiations binding upon the entire movement. 

2a. The Representative of the Bund Fuehrer (Deputy) (Vice Bund Fuehrer) 

The deputy Bund fuehrer is appointed and removed by the Bund Fuehrer. 
It is his special duty to assist the Bund Fuehrer in all routine matters 
affecting Bund officers and area management. As the Commissioner (duty, 
proxy) of the Bund Fuehrer he is the superior of all officers and members. 
He must keep constantly informed, by means of visits, of all Bund matters, 
decisions, and conferences and, in ordei- to preserve and maintain unified 
activity, he must, if occasion require, take charge of all sovereign jurisdic- 
tions and branches, (services). 



APPENDIX PART IV 1553 

During the absence of the Bund Fuehrer lie assumes all the rights and 
duties of the Bund Fuehrer and holds them until the latters return or until a 
National Convention may detennine otherwise. 

3. The Area Leader : The area leader is the direct subordinate of the Bund 
Fuehrer and is a Bund Administrator. He is appointed and removed by 
the Bund Fuehrer and is responsible only to him. 

The area leader is responsible for the philosophical (comprehensive) 
(Weltanschaulich) political, economic, and cultural status of the move- 
ment in the area entrusted to him. 

It is his special duty, with such support as he may be able to secure from 
subordinate sovereigns, to develop and train fuehrer material (talent) for 
the area and the Bund management, and, by means of visits, to establish 
new columns in all parts of his area. 

The designation of the area and the establishment of its boundaries are 
done in accordance with the instructions of the Bund Fuehrer and by the 
Bund organization leader. 

All executives and members of the area are subordinate disciplinarily to 
the area leader. He appoints and removes (1) his area departmental chiefs 
and regional leaders; (2) the state leaders of the area upon recommendation 
t)f the regional leaders; (3) the district or county leaders of the area upon 
recommendation of the qualified State leaders; and (4) the precinct and 
column leaders of the area upon recommendation of the appropriately quali- 
fied State leaders. His appointments and removals, as well as his area 
orders, require the confirmation (approval) of the Bund Fuehrer for Bund 
validity. 

In the event of an inadequate supply of qualified, fuehrer talent, area 
departmental chiefs function temporarily also as regional leaders, in oi'der 
that the special duties of the regional leaders — the study of the national 
and commercial policies, and the industrial and agricultural peculiarities of 
the frequently diverse sections of the area — may be undertaken as quickly 
as possible. In addition, these regional leaders or their associates, in the 
event of a deficiency of other available qualified executives, should assume 
the special functions of the State leaders without delay — the study of the 
legal and political status of the different States. 

All appointments and removals of the area executives, regional leaders, 
State, district, and precinct, or column leaders of the area, as well as the 
orders of the area executives (area departmental chiefs and regional 
leaders) require the confirmation (approval) of the area leader for Bund 
validity. 

All departmental orders of the Bund departmental chiefs are binding up- 
on the leaders as issued ; the functional directions of the Bund depart- 
mental chiefs are to be executed in consideration of (in conformity with) 
the special conditions that prevail in the area. 

The area leader is notified of all oflScial correspondence between the Bund 
management and subordinate officers in the area management. It is his 
duty, when necessary, to take over the duties of subordinate sovereign jur- 
isdictions, either by order (correspondence, etc.) or by visit and in the event 
of faulty executi(tn of Bund orders to correct conditions. 

He must submit a financial and an "activities" report to the Bund Fuehrer 
by the 10th of each month with notes on contemplated area activities, on the 
reasons for possible difficult execution of Bund assignments, and on conditions 
requiring special consideration in the several sections of the area, as well as 
all kinds of suggestions. 

He must conduct regular conferences with his area department chiefs and 
regional managers, attend the State management meetings whenever pos- 
sible, and visit "every last" one of the columns in the area at least once a 
year. His general official expenditures are defrayed by the Bund treasury, 
although the expenses of his official trips are to be distributed among the 
precincts and columns in accordance with their ability to pay. 
3a. The "deputy" (Representative of the Area Leader) Area Leader: The dep- 
uty area leader should be a departmental area executive or a regional lead- 
er of the district. He is appointed and removed by the area leader with 
the approval of the Bund Fuehrer.

(DKV), Bund Welfare, (Women's Services), Youth and its rearing (Youth 
education), OD education, both in the physical and spiritual realm, as 
well as Kultur (science, singing, gymnastics, acting, etc.)- 

The district leader is that liaison officer who should primarily be helpful 
to the area leader in the selection of useful executive and fuehrer talent 
and in the preparation of (arrangements for) propaganda meetings for the 
founding of new columns. 

He must report to the State, area, district, and Bund management monthly. 
The departmental orders of all superior officers ( Bund, area, regional terri- 
torial, and State) are binding upon the district leader as issued. In the 
event of conflict in orders, those of the superior officer prevail. Functional 
(service) directions of these officers are executed in accordance with (con- 
sideration of) the circumstances prevailing in his district. 
7. The Precinct Leader : The precinct develops out of the column or is created by 
the separation of a row of squares from an overgrown precinct. The pre- 
cinct comprises generally a township (village, etc.) ; cities may be divided 
into several precincts. Boundaries should not cut across basic com- 
munity boundaries. 

The precinct comprises a minimum of 20 members ; when there are more 
than 200 members it should be divided into two precincts as soon as possible. 
This is done upon the recommendation of the district leader to the area 
leader ; the area leader effects the divison with the approval of the Bund 
Fuehrer through the area organization leader, as well, also, as the establish- 
ment or change of the boundaries. The Bund organization leader is notified 
at once. The designation of all precincts is made according to instructions of 
the Bund Fuehrer through the Bund organization leader. 

A division of overgrown precincts should be effected because the precinct 
leader should know all his members personally and continue in the position 
of being accessible to every member of the precinct and be able to devote 
his attention to them. 

Where the number of precincts in a small jurisdiction is making perceptible 

growth, the districts should be reduced until finally they constitute only a 

single "county" and the best qualified precinct leader in this "county" is 

promoted to a district leader. 

7a. The precinct leader is a district executive and is directly subordinate to the 

district leader. He is appointed and removed upon the recommendation 

of the district leader by the area leader with the approval of the Bund 

Fuehrer. 

He is responsible to the district leader for the philosophical, (compre- 
hensive) political (weltanschaulich), economic and cultural status of the 
movement in the sovereign jurisdiction entrusted to him. 
7b. The precinct leader is the disciplinary superior of all officers and members 
in his sovereign jurisdiction. Together with the column leader he is the 
lowest ranking sovereign to have jurisdiction over the power of exclusion 
within the limits of the personnel regulations of the Bund. 
7c. He appoints and removes his precinct departmental heads and square leaders 
with the approval of the area leader, and his block leaders upon recom- 
mendation of the qualified square leaders with the approval of the area 
leader. His precinct orders require the approval of the district leader. 
7d. All appointments, removals, and orders of the precinct departmental execu- 
tives and square leaders require the approval of the precinct leader. 
He keeps the district, area, and Bund management currently informed 
concerning all the appointments and essential orders in his sovereign 
jurisdiction. 
7e. Departmental orders of all superior officers (Bund and qualified area, 
regional. State, and district officers) are binding upon the precinct 
leaders as issued. In the case of conflicting orders of the different 
officers those of superiors prevail. Functional directions of these officers 
are executed in accordance with particular circumstances prevalent in 
the sovereign jurisdiction. 
7f. The precinct leader inducts newly-appointed precinct executives, square 
and block leaders, ceremonially into office. The induction takes place 
during a membership "appel" (assembly). 
7g. In addition it is also the duty of the precinct leader to deliver passes to 
unchallenged members (new members of the OD or of the Women's 
Division (service) ceremonially during an OD or Women's Division 
(service) assembly. 



APPENDIX PART IV 1557 

7h. On National Youth Day (about the middle of March of each year) the 
precinct leader, accompanied by his OD Division fuehrer, accepts the 
IS-year old members of the Youth Division (service) during an ("appel") 
assembly of the youth ceremonially into Bund membership and into 
OD : he accepts also at the time of this assembly, the 21-year old girls 
of the Maiden's Division, (service) ceremonially into full Bund mem- 
bership. 

7i. All applications for admission into the Youth Division (service), the Pro- 
motion Division (service) and into Bund membership or, within the 
AV, into the OD or the Women's Division (service) requires the counter- 
signature of the precinct leader for Bund validity. He has the power 
to deny acceptance into the Youth Division (service) or Promotion 
Division (service) without cause. 

7j. He must inform the area and Bund management monthly concerning 
all exclusions or cancelations with notations as to whether the canceled 
or excluded members have returned their cards, books, insignia, etc., 
to the precinct, in order that such persons may not be admitted to 
some other precinct with(Hit the approval of the excludhig precinct 
leader. Precincts are notified currently by the Bund management con- 
cerning exclusions. In his reports to the area and Bund administrations 
the precinct leader must list all cancelations due to loss of interest or 
exclusions due to failure to pay dues. Members excluded by precinct 
leaders have eight days in which to appeal in writing and with their 
knowledge to the next highest ranking officer (the district administra- 
tion). From there the appeal can continue on up step by step. 

7k. Official differences of opinion between the precinct leader and his executives 
or members are not submitted to an investigation and adjustment commis- 
sion but are decided by him personally in the first "instance." The com- 
plainant may appeal, if dissatisfied, to the district leader and from there on 
up, within a period of 8 days, provided his appeal is in writing and is made 
with the knowledge of the precinct leader. Even in cases of exclusion in 
official matters there is no investigation or adjustment commission, but the 
decision rests entirely with the sovereigns only who issue regulations, 
orders, and rules, and who review the official relations between officials and 
members. 

71. Investigation and adjustment commissions are appointed only in matters in- 
volving personal differences and unofficial disputes between Bund members. 
Members of the Commission are appointed by the precinct leader in each 
case from among non-participating, impartial, judicious, and business-like 
membei's of the Bund. (See also Part III "Membership Regulations.") 

7m. The precinct leader has the authority at the beginning of an investigation to 
accept or reject applicaions for its continuance. 

7n. Bund membership cards and books are delivered as they are received by the 
precinct leader to Bund members ceremonially during a membership as- 
sembly. Promotion cards are delivered during a promotion assembl.y or by 
mail or messenger. The first OD passes. Youth membership cards, and 
Women's passes are delivered ceremonially by the precinct leader in the 
presence of the qualified fuehrer during an assembly of the respective 
branch (service). 

For information concerning membership, audit, assembly rules, festivals, 
and other regulations for the precinct leader see "Basic Rules for Precinct 
Administration" and Bund orders. 

7c. The precinct leader must inform all superior officers concerning all essential 
matters in his sovereign jurisdiction, acknowledge all official communica- 
tions by return mail and without exception, and submit before the 10th of 
each month his official report to the Bund management in addition to an 
exact treasury report and an exact account of all dues according to printed 
forms. The essential details (of his report) are to be communicated to the 
area leader. The production ability and the solvency of the movement 
depend upon his scrupulous, regular, and punctual transfer of funds. His 
obligations to the Bund management are the primary obligations of the 
pi'ecinct. 

Even the monthly, minute control of the "household treasuries" of the 
branches is to be conducted strictly and unindulgently. All sections and 
the fuehrers of all sections of the precinct exist primarily for the Bimd or 
else they have no justification for existence. 



1560 UN-AMERICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

10. The Block leader: Blocks should be organized in even the smallest columns. 
The block consists of as many as five house groups. Every house group is in 
charge of a block watcher, and of a woman block watcher, also, in connec- 
tion with matters in which women are interested. The house group should 
not contain more households than can be visited personally by a block 
watcher within five hours for purposes of making an announcement. 
The block bears the designation of the square or the column in which it is 
located, with a letter of the alphabet added; for example: 80-3-A (Block A, 
Square 3, precinct 80). For ordinary local daily purposes the block may 
be designated by the name of the neighborhood. 

The size of the house groups, blocks, and squares is not determined by 
the number of Bund members who occupy them, but should coincide when- 
ever possible, with tlie political jurisdiction of the community. Boundaries 
of house groups, bloclis, and squares should be determined by streets; they 
should not extend beyond political boundaries. 

The establishment and the changes in the designation and the boundaries 
are made in accordance with directions of the district leader by the district 
organization leader. The Bund organization leader is to be notified of the 
block division. 
10a. The block leader belongs to the staff of the qualified square or column 
leader ; he is the lowest ranking sovereign and, with the OD platoon leader 
and square executive tlie lowest ranking executive of the AV. 
He is appointed and removed upon recommendation of the square leader 
by the precinct leader or directly by the column leader with the approval of 
the area leader. 

He is responsible to the qualified square or column leader for all matters 
affecting the movement in the block entrusted to him. 
10b. Disciplinarily subordinate to the block leader are all the blo^ck watchers, 
(men and women) and members in his block, except in respect of the 
power of exclusion. 

He appoints and removes his block watch (men and women) with the ap- 
proval of his square or column leader. 

The block watchers (men and women) enlist their helpers from the 
house groups only after consultation with the block leader and with liis 
consent. 
10c. The block leader is authorized in emergency to take over several blocks 
temporarily, or aid in directing the work of absent block watchers, but 
it is his duty to find substitutes and to place them in charge as soon as 
possible. 
lOd. Tlie block leader inducts newly-appointed block watcliers (men and women) 
into office ceremonially during a membership assembly after they have 
served unchallenged for a period of three months. 
lOe. The block leader participates in the block leader conferences of his square 
leader and reports upon the work of his associates. He conducts as occa- 
sion requires, but at least once a month a block watch conference at 
which he receives reports concerning the work among the house groups 
and at which directions are given to the block watchers (men and women) 
for further activities. 
lOf. He must find ways and means to be accessible to liis square leader surely 
and easily at a definite time every day or at least every other day. In 
the siame way his block watchers nmst arrange to be accessible to him 
at a definite time every day. Telephone numbers and other means by 
which block watchers may be reached must be kept current at the head- 
quarters of the square and precinct leadei". 
lOg. There must be no official written communications in the block. The block 
must not maintain personnel cards. For information concerning mem- 
bers and noii-nienibers, the block leader consults the square leader. 
Naniet-i and descriptions of those available for work in the block, the 
block leader connuits to memory, but he is bound upon his honor not 
to betray any member's name or description to the public. 
lOh. With the approval of the square leaders, block assemblies may be called; 
with the approval of the square leader, the block leader may call for 
contributions, e!c., in his block; these he must transmit to the square 
treasurer or to the column treasury leader. 
lOi. The block does not have special assistants for treasury, propaganda, etc. ; 
all the orders of superior ofRcersi converge upon the block leader and are 
carried out in the house groups by the block watchers. 



APPENDIX PART IV 1561 

lOj. The block leader is the fuehrer :uk1 counsellor of all Bund members and 
Youth members of his sovereign jurisdiction. He must at all times help 
in every way by explanation and advice and portray the spirit of the 
movement in his work. He must discover the bearers of evil r\imors and 
report them to the square leader. He must impress the Bund members 
constantly and spur them on to active cooperation ; he must be alert con- 
stantly for available co-champions (patrons) and bring them to the atten- 
tion of superiors. He may answer questionsi only upon absolute knowl- 
edge, in consideration of the welfare of the movement, and in conformity 
with the prescriptions of his superiors. He must never give any state- 
ment to the press or the public. 

10k. All new applications from the domain of the block are transmitted through 
the block leader. He i&i in every case the responsible leader of the 
qualified investigation committee for determining the truth of personal 
and citizenship declarations of applicants for membership resident in his 
block. He is the second subscribing witness to the declarations and 
obligations on the member&ihip cards of these applicants, after they have 
been accepted. He and his qualified block watch constitute the sureties 
for the conduct of his members in all matters affecting the movement. 

101. Above all else, the block leader must practice absolute secrecy in all official 
matters and have the unqualified confidence of his superiors and subordi- 
nates. He represents the movement in his sovereign jurisdiction to the 
public. He is able to render the Bund valuable service in this close, daily 
contact with the public, but he can also do it great harm. It is his con- 
stant duty by statement and precept to carry again and again just one 
thought in to every household: The Ocrman- American Butul Is The Only 
and First Defensive and Offensive Community of American Germanism, 
in whose ranks only the rights and the respect of our nationality can be 
defended effectively. 

Past III 

DEPAKTMENTAL CHIEFS. DEPARTMENTAL DIVISIONS. MEMBERS 

1. At Offices : The offices of the movement are to be arranged and conducted 
according to the following suggestions: The impression wliicli the arrange- 
ment and conduct of the offices of even the smallest section of the Bund 
makes upon a visitor requires the presentation of the leading and the most 
exemplary of the best in American Germanism. No activity should be more 
orderly, calm or efficient than the conduct of an AV office. At the same time, 
it may be observed that attractiveness is not in conflict with the challenge of 
the movement, although "fuss and feathers" ought to be avoided. 

National and Bund standards may be used as decorative standards. (The 
National or "Sturm"' flag must never be used for decorative purposes and 
must never be unfurled except under OD guard.) 

In addition a picture of our national leader, George Washington, and one 
of our (WeltanschaiiUcJien) philosophical leader, Adolf Hitler, belongs in 
every office. 

Internal matters should never be discussed in the presence of non- 
members ; the intrusion of any official upon the domain of another is 
to be avoided strictly ; unofficial discussions should not be carried on 
during business hours and by no means in offices, where loud talk and 
argumentation is prohibited. Regular office hours must be maintained, 
visitors must be served promptly but always warmly and sympathetically — 
that quick comprehension which we constantly declare to be necessary 
and whose lack among all less disciplined and less fanatic adherents 
and friends we deplore is to be converted into action in the office. That 
which the leadership fails to exemplify cannot appropriately be required 
of followers. 

Every sovereign jurisdiction should endeavor to have an office where 
every executive and associate can perform his duties in undisturbed and 
orderly manner ; eflScient work is possibly only when conditions are 
favorable, 
la. Official dress (Uniform) : 

Every executive and assistant executive of the AV is an OD man 
even though his official duties prevent him from performing the general 



1564 UN-AMERICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

It is his special duty to familiarize liimself with State laws likely to 
affect the movement and to report to his superior and subordinate officers 
concerning them. 

6. The District Treasury Leader : The district treasury leader is disciplinarily 

subordinate to the district leader and is appointed and removed by him 
with the approval of the area leader. The State leader is informed cor- 
respondingly. Departmentally, he is subordinate to the State treasury 
leader. 

As necessity requires, he establishes district treasury offices corresi)ond- 
ing to those of the Bund treasury. He appoints and removes his associates 
with the approval of the district leader. He supervises and promotes the 
execution of the orders of superior treasury officials in the province and 
aids in the preparation of reports of the precincts or columns concerning 
new accesions, rental, lease, or sales contracts, as well as in laws affecting 
the district, to his district leader, State treasury and area treasury leader. 
He issues district treasury orders with the countersignature of the dis- 
trict leader, a copy of which is sent to the State treasury leader. 

Precinct and column treasury leaders are departmentally subordinate to 
him. Of his district treasury orders, a copy is sent to the precinct or 
column leader. 

It is his special duty to familiarize himself with the laws of the "counties" 
in his district, especially, in matters affecting real property, the administra- 
tion of homes and camps, taxes and mortgages, building and health regula- 
tions,, laws of Incorporation, etc. In addition, he is the liaison officer 
between the area treasury leader and the treasury leaders of newly estb- 
lished columns who need help in their work, as well as the offices interested 
in the training of treasiu-y department associates to be recommended for 
promotion. 

7. The Precinct or Column Treasury Leaders. 

The precinct treasury leader is disciplinarily subordinate to the precinct 
leader and is appointed and removed by him with the approval of the area 
leader. The district leader is notified of such appointments and removals. 
Departmentally, he is subordinate to the district treasury leader. 

As occasion requires, he establishes precinct treasury offices correspond- 
ing to those of the Bund treasury. If necessary he must perform the duties 
of precinct treasurer himself. He appoints and removes his immediate 
associates with the approval of his precinct leader. He executes in the 
precinct the orders of superior treasury officers and supervises and promotes 
their execution in the squares and blocks. He submits current detailed 
reports concerning existing or planned accessions, rental, lease or sales 
contracts, to the district treasury leader, the area treasury leader, and the 
Bund Treasurer, and keeps these officers constantly informed concerning 
legal ordinances of the particular municipality (township) that require 
consideration. 

He submits before the 10th of each month, with the countersignature of 
the precinct leader, a detailed report on the financial condition of the pre- 
cinct to the Bund Treasurer, and in accordance with a printed treasury 
report form. This treasury report must show also the exact status of the 
so-called household treasury of the branches (OD, Women's, Youth, etc.). 
The precinct treasury leader is authorized and required to audit and super- 
vise monthly "every last" treasury of the sections, branches, subordinate 
organizations, and affiliated associations in the jurisdiction of the precinct. 
All monies and all property of every section of the movement are the 
property of the Bund and are at its disposal in emergency. In addition 
he submits with his treasury report to the Bund Treasurer a monthly audit 
bearing the countersignature of the precinct leader, such report and audit 
to be in acordance with the form prescribed herein. This report must show 
also the exact number of persons who may be considered as patrons (F ord- 
ers) or members of the Bund or of the "Prospective Citizens' League" of 
the AV. The monthly account of 30 cents per member or patron is not de- 
termined by the punctuality of individual payments but by the foregoing 
count. Where the precinct treasury leader is unable to collect his dues he 
is nevertheless required to make a return to the Bund management until the 
delinquents have been canceled as patrons or members. But before cancela- 
tion the precinct treasury leader is required to make every effort either 



APPENDIX PART IV 1565 

alone or with the assistance of tlie square and block administrations to 
collect the dues that are in arrears and retain the delinquent persons for 
the movement. 

As a part of the orderly (regular) work of the Bund the precinct treasury 
leader should regard the transfer of dues to the Bund administration, the 
obligation of the precinct, as the first duty of the precinct. Just exactly 
as taxes must be paid and tax payments may not be used for any other 
purpose so it is with respect to the monthly settlement of the precinct with 
the Bund administration. 

In cases in which the money simply cannot be transmitted a report must 
be submitted nevertheless with a full explanation of the (failure) in- 
debtedness. 
7a. The patrons' application fees and half of the voluntary propaganda con- 
tributions that accompany patrons' applications are sent to the Bund Treas- 
urer with the application blank. Patrons' pins are to be ordered from 
the P.und Business Fuehrer as needed ; orders must be accompanied by a 
deposit. The same applies to member replacement pins. 
7b. With the acceptance proposal a deposit of 50 cents must be sent to the Bund 
Treasury through the area administration, for insignia for the applicant, 
which is then sent to the precinct with the first membership card. In 
case of rejection of the aiiplication, the insignia deposit is returned to 
the precinct. 
7c. The precinct treasury leader keeps the treasury books of the precinct in 
accordance with the prescriptions of the Bund treasury. He, or a possible 
business fuehrer of the precinct, orders all printed matter for the needs 
of his office from the Bund Business Fuehrer. 

The precinct treasury books must be audited quarterly by an audit com- 
mittee consisting of respected, competent, discreet members or executives of 
the precinct appointed by the precinct leader. Statements concerning the 
financial status or the numerical strength or weakness of the precinct must 
not be made in a membership meeting nor given out publicly. No member- 
ship meeting is an absolutely "closed" meeting from which nothing might 
leak out, and the strength or weakness of the movement or of a section 
is not a public matter. This applies also to the membership count. There 
is no law that requires the officers of an unincorporated, voluntary organi- 
zation to publish these matters. 

The treasury audit is made in order that the examiners may be able to 
testify to the membership that the financial administration of the precinct 
is honest. 

The precinct treasury administration must be ready at all times to submit 
to an examination by any representative of the Bund Treasurer, or area 
treasury leader. 

A rejection of the evidence is permitted after an orderly examination 
with the exiH'ess authorization of the precinct leader. Current Bund orders 
must be observed. The square treasury executives of the precinct are 
departmentally subordinate to the precinct treasury leader. He issues pre- 
cinct treasury orders with the countersignature of the precinct leader. These 
orders pass through the square leader. 

The duties, rights and responsibilities of the column treasury leader 
correspond in the colunm to those of the precinct treasury leader. In 
columns when there are no squares the duties of the square treasury 
leader fall upon the treasury leader. 
8. The Square Treasury Chief: The square treasury chief is disciplinarily subor- 
dinate to the square leader and is appointed and rem<jved by him with the 
approvel of the precinct or column leader. Departmentally he is subordinate 
to the precinct or column treasury leader. 

He executes the departmental orders of the precinct or column leader in 
the jurisdiction of the square and supervises and promotes the activities of 
the block watch in these matters. 

Where large squares conduct their own member assemblies with the ap- 
proval of the precinct or column leader he collects dues in accordance with 
the list furnished him by the precinct treasury leader and transfers them to 
the precinct treasury leader. The distribution of collection lists among the 
block leaders is his duty. The block leaders deliver collected dues with his 
counter-signature to the precinct or column treasury leader. The same pro- 
cedure is followed in contributions, advance-sales cards, lottery books, etc.

agricultural, and political party principles and unity of the movement. The 
regional political leaders consider the national, commercial, industrial, and 
agricultural political problems which should be considered in connection with 
a party election and repoi-t currently on these matters to superior and 
subordinate officers. The State political leaders follow State politics ; the

tional Women's Division (Service) orders, and "Duties, Rights and Respon- 
sibilities of Sovereigns and Departmental Chiefs." 

32. The Block Watch : The Block Watcher occupies with the OD Group Fuehrer, 

the first rank above the general membersh.ip. He is responsible to his 
block leader ff>r all occurrences effecting the movement in the house group 
entmsted to him, except in matters that concern the official responsibilities 
of the woman block watcher (women's problems). 

He executes the orders of the square treasury, square organization and 
square propaganda executives and the special orders of the block leader in 
his house group ; all orders reach him through his block leader. 



1580 UN-AMERICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

32a. The block watcher is appointed by his block leader with the approval of the 
square leader. He selects assistants when necessary after consultation 
with, and approval of, the block leader. Otherwise he must perform his 
duties personally and never depend on others. There must be no ofBcial 
correspondence in the house group, in the block, or, if possible, in the 
square. 
32b. The block watcher receives from his block leader the names, descriptions, 
and other data necessary for his work in the house group in each particular 
case. He must so preserve them that they may not be stolen or betrayed 
and he must never give anybody except his block leader any information 
concerning them under any circumstances. 
32c. The block watcher is obligated to provide means by which his block leader 
and his superiors in the precinct may be able to reach him either person- 
ally or by phone every day or at least every other day at a definite hour. 
If this rule is observed carefully from top to bottom it will enable the 
Bund administration to reach "every last" member within 24 or 48 hours. 
32d, To have the house groups coincide with the existing political divisions of 
the municipality, so far as possible, will bring about as many households 
(dwellings) into a compass which, for the general purposes of the Bund, 
a block- watcher may be able to cover with an announcement (or in which 
he will be able to deliver a bulletin) in about five hours. 
The number of member occupants in the house group do not count, and 
for Bund purposes, dwellings that are not affected must not be counted. 

Periodical visits with members, prospective members, patrons, etc.. propa- 
ganda visits to Bund newspaiwr readers, business people, or other persons to 
be visited will require more time; all of which, too, is to be omitted in deter- 
mining the size of the house group. 
32e. The block watcher is the surety to his block leader and, from there throughout 
the entire movement, for the conduct of epery member in his house group. 
To the member he is the representative of the "Kameradschaft", (brother- 
hood) which has drawn us all together. To the public he represents the 
movement, to be judged according to his conduct and appearance. He is 
able to render great propaganda service to the movement ; but he also can 
do it great honor. He must be concerned at all times, constantly striving 
and practising to stand as an example for all those with whom he is so 
constantly and so closely in contact. He must know the financial circum- 
stances of every member family and investigate how it may be helped. He 
must not pennit any illness or any misfortune to escape his notice or to 
remain unreported to the block leader. Every available, eager champion 
that he discovers in his house group he must report to his superior in 
order that such faculties may be utilized for the advantage of the move- 
ment. He must be the friend and counselor of every one of his members, 
neither snappy, haughty, nor "stern", nor flattering, nor too diplomatic. 
He ought to be so fair and square that all will respect him without being 
compelled to draw on their imaginations. Where there are no youth in 
the Youth Division (Service) it is his duty to solicit them, where the 
organ of the movement is not read it will constitute his first and most 
important duty to see that it is, where there are no stores in the com- 
mercial organization of the Bund or where members or patrons do not 
support affiliated stores he should take hold. Where able men think they 
are not needed in the OD he nmst change their minds and prevail upon 
them. Where anybody who could be of service to us is still outside because 
he thinks that his position, his class, his confession, or his national origin 
might be undervalued or ignored, he will find opportunity for explana- 
tion. Where there is complaint this or that still is missing in the Bund 
he can explain how easy it would be to improve the situation with the 
aid of the complainant. Where information concerning political activities 
or possibilities can be secured for the Bund in this domain it should be. 
The movement must not be permitted to stand still ; members must be held 
to discipline and to the performance (fulfilment) of their obligations and put 
to work in every way possible. On the outside there must be constant, cease- 
less effort in order that no month may pass which does not find a new reader, 
a new DKV agency, or new members or patrons brought in from e-^ery block. 
The block watcher performs the most important of the detailed work of 
the movement. His work never is finished. It is his first duty to fashion the 
Bund into an active, aspiring American-German Community. 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1581 

32f. The Women Block watchers: 

Women block watchers hold the same rank as men. They are appointed 
by the block leader with the approval of the square leader. They execute 
in the house group assigned to them the departmental orders of the qualified 
women's square executive and the orders of their block leader. They receive 
all their orders through the block leader. When necessary in the event of an 
accumulation of duties they select assistants with the approval of the block 
leader. Otherwise they must iierform their duties personally and rely upon 
no one. There must be no official written correspondence in the house group 
or in the block. 
32g. For further information concerning the duties of the woman block watcher 
see "Organizational Structure of the Women's Service", "Bund orders" 
and "National Women's Service Orders." 
33. The Bund Member. The Member of the Prospective Citizen's League of the 
AV. 

Eligible for full membership in the American German Bund is every 
reputable citizen of the United States of Aryan origin who has completed his 
18th year, as well as every reputable woman citizen of the United States of 
Aryan origin who has completed her 21st year. The preponderance (pre- 
dominance) in every precinct must be assured to German-speaking German- 
ism under all circumstances. 
33a. Eligible for membership in the "Prospective Citizens' League" of the AV, 
but not eligible to hold oflBce or to vote in the Bund, are all reputable 
prospective citizens of the United States who have a valid "first citizen- 
ship" paper and who otherwise fall within the foregoing description, para- 
graph 33. Members of the Prospective Citizens' League are admitted to 
AV Member Meetings upon presentation of their valid membership cards 
(or books). 
33b. Eligible for admission to the Patrons Service of the AV, which is neither 
an organization nor a society, and admission to which does not qualify 
for membership in any "organization" is every person recommended by 
a qualified sovereign as a respectable, reputedly honest friend of the 
movement, regardless of his or her nationality. Patrons may be admitted 
also under "cover" names and "cover" addresses (fictitious). Concerning 
membership meetings see 33d. 
33c. Youths who have not reached the age prescribed in the foregoing for full 
membership in the Bund are eligible for admission to the Youth Service 
of the AV regardless of their nationality or the relation of their parents 
or guai'diaus to the Bund, provided they are of German origin. Those of 
other nationality, but only Aryans, who indicate a willingness to learn 
German are eligible only luider special circumstances and with the written 
consent of the National Youth Administration (Service) Division. The 
Youth of Germanism must be kept nationally and linguistically German, 
which would be almost impossible in a division composed of mixed na- 
tionalities. (See also Youth Regulations.) 
33d. Change Regulations on page 2, paragraph 6, sentence "a," of Instructions 
to Precinct Administrations. Since December 16, 19S9, no one can be 
admitted immediately into AV Membership. The applicant for admission 
must be accepted as a patron first. When a person has decided to become 
a Bund member or a member of the Prospective Citizens' League of the 
AV he fills out the application of the AV in detail, remaining a patron 
until the acceptance of his application, which takes at least six months. 
The patron application will have been sent to the Bund Administration 
with the application fee and half of the propaganda contribution, and the 
patron will have received his patron's card. 
His application for admission remains in the precinct for the period of six 
months, while his personal and citizenship declarations are investigated 
according to regulations. After six months the application for admission, 
with a deposit of 50 cents for the Bund insignia, is tran.smitted to the Bund 
administration by way of the area administration. Upon receipt of his 
membership card and his insignia in the membership assembly, the new 
member returns his patron's card, which is then sent back to the Bund 
administration for cancelation. 

Patrons who do not make application to become members may secure a 
patron's emblem from the precinct or column leader. 



1582 UN-AMERICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

See also "Membership" in the "Directions for Precinct Administration" and 
Bund orders. For information concerning Women Members see also, "Organi- 
zational Structure of the Women's Service" and National Women's Division 
Orders. 
3Se. Every member subscribes to the declaration and obligation in his (her) 
membership card (or membership book) in the presence of the qualified 
precinct or column leader and the block leader surety, who sign as wit- 
nesses. This declaration and obligation is not an oath of any kind. Who- 
ever desires justly to remain and vote in the Bund as an actual champion, 
whoever desires honestly to reach the goal which the movement has set, 
which every member makes his own goal upon his admission, must study 
this declaration and obligation earnestly and conduct himself accordingly 
with all his might. Then this movement will be invincible. 
33f. Member dues : The assessed monthly minimum dues for non-indigent males 
and independent w^omen Bund members is 75 cents ; for married women 
and other non-self-sustaining women family members, 30 cents. The 
monthly dues of indigent Bund members may be reduced temporarily to 
as little as 30 cents per month by the precinct or column leader. Tlufe 
minimum assessment, which must be forwarded to the Bund Administra- 
tion, may, in extraordinary cases, be covered by the "Kanierads". Whoever 
has a weekly wage above the average must regard himself as obligated to 
make a monthly propaganda contribution in addition to the foregoing 
normal charge, to be acknowledged on his membership card by contribution 
stamps, and of which half is sent to the Bund administration. 
33g. For a Bund member there is no such thing as a "right" to free admission for 
official attendance at assembly, nor a "right" to a refund of traveling 
expenses, or other expenses in connection with the ofiicial performance of 
his duties ! 

True, the Kamerad summoned to a meeting for service is, indeed, not 
required to pay a fixed admission charge, since he must attend whether or 
not he is able to pay such a charge, but he is obligated to contribute to Ithe 
expense of the evening, even if he cannot pay more than 5 cents ; the same 
applies to other duties. Those for whom expenses may become too great 
will be helped and without being made to feel that he is of any less value. 
But whoever can do so, even at a sacrifice, must pay. 

In the Bund service is not to be compensated by favors or privileges. In 
the Bund everyone contributes his time, his strength and his money accord- 
ing to his ability, and the reward is the .ioy of service and the thanks of the 
movement. It is only through such a spirit of joyous self-sacrifice that we 
shall prevail ; the Jewish spirit of materialism must not be permitted to 
enter the Bund or we shall be destroyed individually and collectively. 

The Bund is not an organization to be joined for the purpose of expecting 
a definite, tangible return for every penny contributed. It represents the 
last possibility of American Germanism to rise from the condition of a down- 
trodden, war-subjugated disavowed nationality, contented with its lot to 
the status of a sound, great, proud nationality through which we and our 
descendents may live according to our own God-given way and through which 
we may help to fashion in every important vital matter this, our nation, not 
because it will be accorded us graciously but because it is our right and 
because we have the power to exercise that right without supplication. Then 
and only then will the neglect and the persecution of American Germania 
cease. We owe to ourselves, oiir ancestors, and our descendents, the right 
to be a free people, and not the despised spit-upon menials of inferior despots 
(dictators) who deserve still to be cursed by our children. The Bmid mem- 
ber's mode of grievance is only the official way. People who may be luiable 
to agree on the outside owe a duty to the Bund to work together in tlie 
Bund, and they can do so if they have the proper spirit of service and if each 
performs his duties. He who carries personal animosities into the Bund 
weakens the movement. Where it is not possible to resolve a difference of 
opinion by a frank discussion man to man the precinct or column leader will 
appoint an investigation and conciliation commissioner. He may grant or 
refuse the reqxiest (to consider). If he grants the hearing he will appoint a 
committee of deliberative, calm, generally respected members or officers. 
Even though the decision might be unfair to one of the parties (to the con- 
troversy) he is nevertheless obliged to conduct himself in accordance with it 
or to resign (withdraw). If the precinct or column leader refuses to appoint 
a committee upon request the member may appeal to a higher officer within 
at least a period of eight days provided it be in writing and with the knowl- 



APPENDIX PART IV 1583 

edge of his superior (who refused). But the decision of the next higher ranli- 
ing officer is final. Committees of investigation and conciliation are ap- 
pointed only to consider peisonal controversies between nienibcrs. No such 
committees are appointed to consider official differences of opinion. In official 
matters sovereigns decide. Should a member or officer, after conviction, re- 
gard the decision as unfair he may appeal to the next higher ranking de- 
partmental and disciplinary sovereigns within eight days in writing and with 
the knowledge of his accused superior. In the event he be dissatisfied there 
he may appeal again in writing to tlie next higher ranking officer and so on 
until in a given case he may reach the Bund Fuehrer. His decision is final. 
If the complaining member pursues the official course from beginning to end 
■ in such a matter no other member ever will be able to know anything about 
it — it concerns only those who are affected (or involved). Any other course 
of procedure will weaken the integrity of the movement and is consequently 
prohibited. 

See also especially the OD Service regulations. 
33j. The most Important principles for which every real champion will contend 
are : 

A people that will permit themselves to be divested of their language will 
vanish as German descendants, he who adopts any other than German as the 
language of his home, even though he may endeavor to think German in a 
foreign tongue, will lose his national consciousness within a generation, 
which has been the irrefutable history of all American Germanism. German- 
American youth learns its English quickly, thoroughly, and unforgettably on 
the streets and in the public schools. Those pai-ents who would not betray 
the woi"k of the Bund at its most vulnerable point will insist strongly and 
without exception that only German be spoken at home, among the children 
as well as between children and parents and that, in additi(in the child learn 
to think in German. Only thus shall we be. able to preserve our nationality 
during our time — and let it be not said that is impossible to do it. 

A people that permits itself to be divested of its racial individuality also 
will perish ; a people that indifferently interbreeds with another sins against 
the original (fundamental) laws of the Almighty and will die. If a child of 
German descent is reared with a national consciousness and if the parents 
have taken the additional pains to assure it, through our defensive movement 
of Germanic America, association with Kamerads and friends of German 
descent, then the mixed marriages that are destroying Germanic America will 
cease. 

A people that will permit itself to be divested of its national consciousness 
and its own way of life surrenders to the foreigner and is lost ; the German 
descendent who curries the favor of the foreigner and follows his opinion 
betrays his right to life. So, too, in the movement. Attacks upon our 
movement and criticism of it and of the men and women who constitute it 
mean nothing to us (are devoid of validit.v). The German naticmality must 
learn to be proud, tc criticize itself and its own kind, but to pay no atten- 
tion to the criticism of outsiders, except of course the officers of the law. 
The German nationality must prepare to end its wretched veneration of the 
foreign and its cringing before foreign mockers. 

All this is the service, the duty, and the obligation of a Bund member ; 
within the limits of the law of the land the movement of the German-American 
Bund comes first in all things in the life of the individual fellow-countryman, 
in order that our whole nationality may be purified and reestablished. 

Notice to the Recipient of These Regulations 

Like all the rest of the valuables created by the Bund these regulations consti- 
tute the property of the Bund. Every officer must preserve them and study them 
thoroughly ; he must not release them except in the event of I'etirement from office, 
when he must turn them over to a qualified sovereign. 

But these regulations should be put to practical use in educational evening 
(classes) until "every last" 'Kamerad' understands his assignment and knows his 
duty. Tliey must not be buried in a forgotten (desk) drawer. 

They are the residt of the serious study not only of the experiences of our Bund 
and its predecessors but also of the experiences of the old home under the leader- 
ship (Fuehrung) of the greatest German of all times. 

Proposals for improvement are requested but imtil changes are made every 
sovereign must comply with them so far as humanly possible. "Free America" 
"Wilhelm Kunze," Deputy Bundfuhrer.

Schutztruppi» unscrcr Bewecunt;. Eido irtendwelchor Art auf einen Fuh" 
rev £-ibt os in unseren Reilien nicht, aber jeder OD»Manu ist verpflic' 
tet, iu Raiinen der Lar>descosetze seincn Piihrern unbcdin^ten Gehorsau 
und rxickhaltlose Trcue enttregenzubringen, 

Daboi ist zu berucksichti^en, dess der Befehl des joweils rang= 
hohcren Piihrc-rs ausschlagcebend ist; die Treue dos OD-Maunes hbrt 
HICHT beiu Abteilungsfiihrer auf, sondern gilt in Ictzten Fall dea 
BioniosfuhreT VOR ALLEN ANDSRSK. Persdnliche Zuneigungen Oder Atoei- 
guxig-en spiel en boix.i rc-chten OD«Mann KBtKE ROLLS; die Bofehle dys ?or= 
ccsetzton wcrdon ausgtfiihrt, solan^e dieser sein Ant bekleidet und 
nicht den Befefclee SKINES VorgesetiSten zuwiderhandelt! 

Der OD"Marin soil also wissen, dass er, von der. Tage an, an welch' 
er zuu w^rstenncd das Ehrenkleid dos OD tract, imter Ausschaltung all

£un{;, wonn notit: unter Einsatz dws Lebens, der unerbittlicher Wider- 
sachex des judischea Ksrxisi.iUs und der konpronisslose Verfechter der 
Belangc des Ajierikadeutschtuiis BLEIBT, cuch wo dies noglicherwoise i 
i^enOeiner Gruppo IWJSRHiXB des Bundes nicht nehr recht sein sollte! 

Wer nicht Vun dioseo unerschutterlichen Glauben und Mut erfiillt 
ist -und Aicht als fanatischer Kaupfer aitu-^rschieren kann, gehbrt 
nicht in Jon OD; die nationalsosialistische Weltanschauung erfasst z 
haben, bedeutet .xLlc- Binduneen an die liberalistische Halbheit end» 
f:ultita sbbrechen! • 

(S) Der OlD ist kein Jehrvorband; seine AusMldung erfolct nicht

v.ant, with regard to procurement of uniform equipment, aid in paying contri- 
butions, covering traveling expenses and any charges for admittance in coiuiec- 
tion with official trips, payment of tips, et cetera. The Comradeship Fund is 
maintained by donations of the OD men and their supporters. It is also subject 
to monthly audit by the cashier of tlie Local Group or Strong Point and in case 
of need is available to the Local Group or Strong Point, at tlie demand of the 
Leader of the Local Group or Strong Point. There is no official OD fund. The 
I'latoon Finance Office also has the duty of w'orking out financial plans for pro- 
cui'ements, buildings, training, insurance, maintenance and the like that are 
Ijlanned, and of carrying out raffles and sale of cards of the OD. 

Labor Office: Use of the labor service. Supervision of training in crafts and 
advice as to calling. Procurement of work in agreement with the Adjutant 
of the Local Group or Strong Point. 

Health Office: Supervision of sanitation, medical attention and food. 

Insurance Office: OD life insurance, sick benefit funds and unemployment relief. 

Physical Ctilture Office: Exercises, sport, physical culture. 

La/iv Office: Supervision and advice of the OD establishments with regard to 
T)rovisions of law. 

Press Office: Collection and sending in of OD reports, articles and notices to 
the National OD Press Office. 

Trainimf Office: Training in outlook on the world and training for leadership 
in the OD. Provision of teaching material in agreement with the Schooling 
Leader of the Local Group or Strong Point. 

Recruiting and Cultural Office: Drafting of informatory and recruiting docu- 
ments, plans for decorations of halls, services of festivals, et cetera, for OD 
meetings (Bund meetings under leadeship of the OD. Constant enliffhtenment 
refiarding the im'portance of the encouragement and incitation of the young people 
of the Bund. All work in agreement with the Recruiting Leader of the Local 
Group or Strong Point. 

Stibordinate Leaders: By means of his subordinate leaders (the squad leaders, 
group leaders and leaders of musicians of the Section), the OD Platoon Leader 
accomplishes the practical OD work of the Local Group or Strong Point. He 
must at every opportunity inspire his subordinate leaders and men by exemplary 
service and comradely preparatory work and by absolutely impersonal and 
just treatment build them into the firmly founded, strictly disciplined protec- 
tive and recruiting unit which our movement must have. He will participate 
as often as possible in the musters and official trips of his comrades, demanding 
nothing of them which he himself would not be ready to perform and will 
always be the first comrade of the Platoon. He will always appear more 
punctually for duty than he expects of his subordinates and will be the last 
to leave tho place of duty. He will never complain of his superiors before his 
comrades, but will display the absolute loyalty and correct behavior which he 
expects from his men. The blind obedience that will be absolutely necessary 
in serious situations can be provided only if the Platoon represents a true 
association of comrades which feels respect for and confidence in its Leader. 



APPENDIX PART IV 1609 

It is possible only to call forth and to maintain this voluntary following if 
the Platoon Leader shows himself a comrade and a calm, self-possessed 
Leader to every OD man in the same way, a Leader who always thinks much 
more of his duties than of his rights. The OD Leader is the direct Leader of 
the br'avest and most unselfish men in our ranks ; his first thought must always 
be to confirm by his every act their belief in the just cause of the movement. 

The holding of meetings and parades, participation in other meetings, and 
the use of the labor service take place only with the approval of the Leader 
of the Local Group or Strong Point. The Platoon Leader must keep his Local 
Group or Strong Point Leader informed on all the work of his Platoon and 
must always be at his disposal with his men. As the crop of leaders of the 
movement is to be taken as far as possible from the ranks of the OD, and as 
the OD in turn must be filled up from the ranks of the young people, there 
prove to be the most important duties of the Platoon Leader : in the first place 
the search for us'able leader material and its training and encouragement, and 
in the second place constant solicitation for the heart and hand of our young 
people. In consideration of the preponderant influences among which these 
young people are growing up, no model behavior is to be required of the young 
people before the OD member declares himself ready to approach them in a 
comradely way, but all efforts must be made to gain the liking of the young 
people who have frequently been wrongly reared, even if the OD man to 
start with first speaks to the young men, for example, upon meeting them or 
may have to take as part of the bargain some discourtesy or lack of 
consideration. 



THE CD SECTION LEADEai — THE OD SQUAD LEADER 

TJie Section Leaders and Squad Leaders are the collaborators of the Section 
Leader in the disciplinary control of the subdivisions of the Platoon in question.

of youth and calling to be available to the movement at any time. The active 
OD assembles regularly every week at OD nuisters. As far as possible, every 
active OD member can be reached by telephone at any time. 

OD Reserve: The OD Reserve should include all sound male members of the 
Bund who are not in a position to serve in the ranks of the active OD. The 
OD Reserve is drawn upon during si:)ecially large meetings and assembles monthly 
for a service muster, together with the active OD. 

Both divisions are subordinate to the Platoon Commander. Uniform and 
insignia are the same for both divisions. 

SUBDIVISIONS OF THE BRANCHES

OD Squad Leader. Superfluous OD members are assigned for the time being

assigned for the time being to the First Section of the organization in question. 

The Platoon: The OD Platoon includes all OD Sections and OD musical 
organizations of the Local Group or Strong Point. 



1610 UN-AMERICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

SECTION OF MUSICIANS 

Each Platoon shall endeavor to provide a section of musicians. Where this is 
not possible, the Platoon shall report to the District OD Leader any OD member 
who is suitable for a section of musicians and shall make him available, so that 
the District can at least assemble a section of musicians from OD members 
of various Platoons. 

As long as the musicians are not sufficiently drilled, they must participate 
regularly in the OD musters ; the Platoon Leader will excuse musicians from 
duty when possible. TTie sections of musicians participate in the monthly 
general musters of the Platoon. 

MEMBERS 

Any male member of the Bund who is physically sound and has completed 
his eighteenth year can become a OD man. All OD men and OD Leaders in 
particular are required to procure a certificate of Aryan blood. 

A newly accepted OD man is considered for the first four weeks a OD proba- 
tioner. His OD certificate of acceptance, signed by the Platoon Leader, goes 
directly to the National OD Leader. The National OD Leader issues the OD 
pass and sends the latter to the Platoon. The OD passes are formally handed 
out by the Platoon Leader to the new OD members at an OD muster. Ac- 
ceptances for the OD are to be reported immediately to the Leader of the Local 
Group or Strong Point. 

The Platoon Leader can refuse acceptance in the OD without a statement of 
reasons, after consultation with the Leader of the Local Group or Strong 
Point. 

There are no OD contributions. Every OD member makes his monthly mem- 
bership contribution as a member of the Bund. Contributions to the Comrad- 
ship Fund of the OD are voluntary. 

Admittance to FunGtions: An OD man present on duty is not required to pay 
any given admission to functions of the Bund. He should contribute a voluntary 
sum for expenses, adapted to his capacity to pay. 

Discharge: The right to apply the disciplinary regulations and disciplinary 
furlough belongs to every OD Leader in accordance with the regulations under 
"OD Discipline". OD Leaders, from the Platoon Leader upward, can discharge 
OD men from the OD with the assent of the competent Leader of the Local 
Group or Strong Point. Discharge from the OD does not affect membership in 
the Bund. 

Resignation: Voluntary resignation is refusal to serve. Any person who wishes 
to leave the OD must direct a written application for dismissal to his Platoon 
Leader, with a statement of reasons and must, if possible, provide a substitute. 

Certificate of Conduct and OD Certificate: In addition to his membership card 
in the Bund, an OD man carries with him his OD pass. If the OD member pays 
his membership contributions to the Bund punctually and performs his duties 
loyally, his OD pass will be stamped monthly by the Platoon Commander. The 
OD pass is sent to the Area OD Leader every six months to be checked. The OD 
pass, stamped according to regulations, grants the OD member admittance to all 
functions of the Bund and its branches. OD passes which have not been stamped 
up to the previous month in any case lose their validity. 

Rules of Behavior for the OD Man 

(A) The Uniformed Service [OD] of the America-German Bund is the protec- 
tive unit of our movement. In our ranks there are no oaths of any kind to a 
leader, but everj' OD man is pledged to render absolute obedience and unbounded 
loyalty to his leaders, within the framework of the laws of the country. 

In this connection it is to be borne in mind that the order of the leader next in 
rank at any given time is decisive ; the loyalty of the OD man does not stop at 
the platoon leader, but in the last analysis concerns the Leader of the Bund 
above all others. Personal likes or dislikes play no part with the true OD man; 
the orders of his superior are carried out as long as the latter fills his office and 
does not act counter to the orders of his superior. 

The OD man should therefore understand that beginning with that day on 
which he wears the dress uniform of the OD for the first time, he has, eliminating 
all pei'sonal opinions, become a protectoi' of the movement and its leaders against 



APPENDIX PART IV 1611 

all attempts at niidcrmininr/ and breakiiiff up, from within or imthout. The OD 
man gives the assurance that dur movement will, at the sacrifice of life if neces- 
sary, remain the inexorable opponent of Jewish Marxism and the uncompromising 
champion of (he demands of American Germans, even if this should possibly no 
longer please some group wiiinn the Bund. 

Anyone who is not filled with this unshakable faith and courage and can not 
march along as a fanatical fighter does not belong in the OD ; to have embraced 
the National Socialist view of things means definitively breaking off all ties with 
liberal halfway measures. 

(B) The OD is not a military organization; its training does not take place 
according to purely military standpoints, but according to suitable guiding ideas 
of politics and things in general. 

Some drill is necessary, in order to make possible disciplined employment, but 
the main emphasis is to be placed even more on training in athletics and forma- 
tion of character and mentality. The OD man who looks to the future will gladly 
imdergo any hardship that causes him to become stronger than his foes in health, 
in character and in mind. The effeminate and lazy man is headed for the abyss ; 
whoever wants to have the right to life must be a fighter, who can be hard even 
to himself! 

Therefore let no OD man expect to be received gently into our ranks. AVe are 
looking for men who enter our organization not in order to procure personal 
advantages or to be allowed to play soldier pleasantly, but who intend with their 
whole poioer to eradicate the red Jewish pestilence in America. 

(C) The OD man is easily recognizable anywhere by his bearing. Therefore he 
must always, on and off duty, take special pains to carry himself as he himself 
would expect of a representative of the leadership of American Germans. As an 
OD man he is no longer a private individual, whose faults involve only a few in 
suffering with him ; he actually represents the movement to the general public, 
and must take care that no boorish behavior on his part may give reason for a 
wrong opinion of the Bund. 

(D) Persons attending gatherings and guests at our functions are to be treated 
with the greatest courtesy and civility possible. Many a prejudice that a stranger 
brings along can be removed by the model behavier of the OD man. 

(E) Smoking and drinking while on duty is prohibited. The OD Leaders are 
required to enforce this rule most strictly. At the command "duty ended," cap 
and shoulder belts are removed. 

(F) The weekly musters are the training evenings for the OD. They should 
be held in gymnasiums as far as possible. After the drill and the gymnastic 
exercises there comes half an hour of schooling and then social pleasures. The 
OD man should strive to become acquainted with our treasure of popular and 
war songs and to contribute also to this song treasury of the movement. 

Unexcused absence from duty involves punishment. 

(G) Heads of offices can at the same time hold rank in the OD. Their other 
rank has nothing to do with the OD : heads of offices are, in the OD, under the 
command of the competent OD Leader. Heads of offices are not required to per- 
form the regulation OD duty ; rather is this voluntary for them, as they will 
seldom have time for the regular OD duty, if they wish to do justice to their 
special tasks. However, the head of every office is required to participate in the 
monthly general musters. Only one designation of rank is worn at a given time ; 
it is the one that corresponds to the duty at the time. 

(H) Arming the OD is prohibited. If a weapon is found on an OD man, the 
latter is to be discharged from the OD immediately. The OD Leaders are re- 
sponsible for the strict enforcement of this rule. 

(I) The military standards of the OD, the United States flag and the Bund 
flag with the patch of the platoon in the union, are the sacred symbols of the 
movement, to which the highest respect is to be paid. The military standards 
are never used as decorations, but ahvai/s are kept under OD guard. They are 
to be protected at the cost of one's life. To be a standard bearer is the highest 
honor of the OD man. 

(J) Every OD man has the right to complain. If an OD man believes that he 
has reason for complaint, he is to submit it to his section leader in writing. 
(Jomplaints regarding any occurrence must be submitted not less than twenty- 
four hours after the occurrence and not more than seven days after the occur- 
rence. If the OD man believes that he has not been given justice by his Platoon 
Leader, he carries the complaint, with the knowledge of the platoon leader, up 
to the Leader of the Local Group or Strong Point, and in case of need, step by 



1612 UN-AMERICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

step through the District OD Leader, the District Leader, etc., on up to the 
National OD Leader and the Leader of the Bund. Ck)mplaints are considered 
only if the OD man keeps strictly to service channels. 

An OD man true to his duty will never disseminate his dissatisfaction among 
his comrades and will never, among his comrades, make any criticism of a 
superior, but will always complain only to those above him. The collecting of 
signatures in order to strengthen a complaint, as well as any other stirring up 
of one's comrades, is considered disintegration and mutiny and involves im- 
mediate discharge. 

No matter how justified the anger of an OD man may be, it remains his first 
duty to avoid everything that might endanger the close unity of the movement. 

The Uniform 

(A) The active OD and the OD reserve, the section of musicians, the medical 
service, the front fighters and the office administration force of the Bund (includ- 
ing the ofiicers) wear the OD uniform. Special arm-bands are provided for the 
medical service and the front fighters, and epaulets for the musicians, in addition 
to the OD armbands. 

(B) Probationary members of the OD are not permitted to wear the uniform. 

(C) The uniform is the full dress outfit of the movement. Anyone who appears 
in uniform, represents the essentials of the Bund. A stranger will judge the 
OD and hence the Bund from the appearance of the person wearing the uniform. 
A uniform kept neat and in good order and a snappy bearing when on or off duty 
must be a matter of honor to every real OD man. 

(D) Orders and decorations may be worn with the uniform at any time; they 
are worn on the left breast-pocket.

the OD musicians and bandsmen wear the OD armband. The armband is worn 
with the uniform, when on or off duty. 

The medical service wears a white armband with a standing red cros.s. 

The front fighters wear, on duty in the OD or OD reserve, the OD armband, 
and when on duty in the front fighter .service, a field gray (greenish-gray) arm- 
band with the Bund front fighter insignia embroidered on it in gold. 

(O) The epaulets: with the uniform of the OD musicians' unit there belong red 
and white striped epaulets, in addition to the OD armband. The epaulets of 
the drum major are provided with fringes.

Colors 

(A) Every oflacer has two colors available (one American flag and one Bund 
flag with patch). The colors are carried everywhere that the Leader or the OD 
of the area of command concerned is acting officially. 

(B) The colors are always carried and guarded by uniformed OD color-bearers 
and by them only. Colors are never lent, given away or sold. Consecrated 
colors are never used as flags for decoration or hung up ; they are always to be 
carried on the pole and are to be set up only under constant watch by the OD. 

(C) The colors are four feet high and six feet wide. The Bund flag has a deep 
red ground, with white rays from the middle to the four corners. Each of the 
four rays contains two black stripes. In the middle of the flag, on both sides, 
the insignia of the Bund, three feet high, in gold, with black shading, is sewed on. 
In the union (the upper, inner corner of the flag), a distinctive patch is applied. 
The patch is six inches high and nine inches wide and is sewn on two inches from 
the pole and one inch from the upper edge of tlie flag. The American standard is 
not marked in any way. 

(D) For the tip of the flag-pole, an eagle is to be used, if possible, for the 
American color, and for the Bund color the bronze Bund insignia, which can be 
procured from the National OD Equipment Office. 

(E) The American color always accompanies the Bund color. It is always 
carried or displayed in the place of honor to the right of the Bund color. ( In tlie 
direction of march, on the right ; on or in front of a stage, to the right as seen 
by the speaker). 

(F) Distinctive Markings for the Bund Colors: The color of the local group or 
strong point (the platoon flag) bears a blue patch; the name of the local group 
or strong point and border in yellow. 

The district color bears a light brown patch ; the name of the district and the 
border in yellow. 

The circle color bears a black patch ; name of circle and border in yellow. 

The regional color bears green patches ; name of region and border in yellow. 

The area color bears red patches ; name of area and border in yellow. 

The color of the headquarters of the Bund (national color) bears light yellow 
patches with the insignia of the Bund in gold, shaded with black, and with golden 
border for the patch. 

(G) The colors are to be procured through the National OD Equipment Office. 
In ordering, the name of the command area in question is to be given in German. 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1615 

Drili. Regulations 

(A) Drilling is for the practicing regularly of the forms indispensable for the 
organization and maintenance of a nnit. 

Drill is not an end in itself, but is used only t<» make possible a highly necessary, 
disciplined and effective action, unattainable in otlier ways, and the highest pos- 
sible degree of true spirit of comradeship. 

Drill demands full physical and mental subordination to will. The success of a 
systematic drill becomes an indicator of tlie inner wortli of the unit, for discipline, 
confidence, the feeling of belonging together, self-control and readiness to act 
receive compact expression tlirough it. The OD man who is well drilled shows 
by his bearing the strength of his will and his feeling. He must, for liis own 
pleasure, be recognizable anywhere, and deservedly, as OD man from his glance 
and bearing and must be able to gain respect as a model. 

(B) The execution of the drill must be strict and severe. Even the slightest 
errors and deticiencies in the execution of the commands are to, be corrected as 
soon as they occur, for it is very difficult to make up later for faulty basic training. 

(C) Drill should always be performed only for a short time. 

(D) The use of drill as a punishment is foi'bidden. 



(E) Saluting: 

(1) For the national hymn of the United States: ("The Star Spangled Ban- 
ner"), and for the song ''America" ("My Cotmtry 'tis of Thee"), the right hand 
is brought to the cap above the right temple (the hand horizontal, with fingers 
and thumbs touching and slightly bent). When this is done, the left hand is 
kept on the seam of the trousers, as for "attention". 

(2) For all other occasions (assembly of colors, honors, official greetings, etc.), 
the OD employs only the Bund salute. (This is true also for the front fighters, 
the officials, the young people and all other branches of the Bund). 

In the Bund salute, the right arm is brought forward by the shortest course 
and is stretched somewhat to the right, with the hand on a level with the fore- 
head, the arm parallel with the right foot in the basic position, the fingers stretced 
and the thimib touching. At the same time, uniformed men place the left hand 
on the belt, the hand somewhat to the left of the collar, the fingers extended over 
the belt and the thumb behind the belt. Men not in uniform hold the left hand 
at the side during the Bund salute, as for "attention". The salute is concluded 
by the right hand first being brought before the left chest with the hand horizontal 
and then both hands being dropped to the sides simultaneously in the basic 
position. 

The perfunctory salute with hand raised hi^h is permissible only when not 
on duty. 

(3) The oflBcial spoken salutation of the Bund is: "Free America!" 

Draft 

(4). All members of the Bund and in particular all uniformed members of 
the Bund, including the young people, are obliged to salute each other and among 
each other. The junior or lower in rank is required to salute first, but com- 
radeship requires everyone to salute voluntarily upon recognition, without wait- 
ing for formalities. 

(F). Command: 

(1). The command brings about exactly determined movements of the in- 
dividual OD men or of the unit. 

The command consists as a rule of a preparatory command and an executive 
command. Between the two parts of the command a brief pause in speech is 
to be inserted (indicated in writing by a horizontal line : " — "). The preparatory 
command is drawn out and the executive command is given briefly and sharply. 
No command is to be called out more loudly than necessary. 

As the command is, so is the execution. Calmness, certainty and precision in 
commanding are the prerequisites for perfect execution. Before giving the com- 
mand, the commanding officer assumes the basic position and stands in such a 
position, depending on the front and depth of the organization, that he can 
oversee the unit and can be heard by every OD man. 

(2). Wrong commands are revoked by "Command withdrawn." 

(3). Reporting: If an officer of higher rank appears at a muster or function, 
report thereof must be made immediately by the senior on duty at the time. 



1616 UN-AMERICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

As the first command at the appearance of an officer of higher rank the com- 
mand "Attention" is given. Execution : The OD men who are in formation, as 
well as those who are not in formation, assume the basic position, eyes toward 
the superior oflicer. 

Commands in connection with the reporting: "Attention", "Eyes — right" or 
"Eyes — left." The senior officer reports the strength of the men in formation 
and then gives the Bund salute. 

Wording of the report: "OD (designation of unit) with (number of) men on 
duty." Further commands according to the order of the superior officer. 

(G). Dkills 

{!). Basic position. Command: "Attention". 

Execution : The OD man assumes the basic position. The right foot remains 
stationary. The OD man stands still with his heels together. The toes are at 
the same time turned outward so far that the feet do not quite form a right 
angle. The weight is distributed equally over the heels and the balls of the feet. 
The knees are slightly bent. The shoulders are of even height and held back. 
The arms are held lightly, the elbows slightly pressed forward, a bare hand's 
width away from the body. The palms of the hands and the tips of the fingers 
are on the upper parts of the thigh. The fingers are closed, the thumb extended 
along the inner surface of the index finger, and the little finger is on the seam 
of the trousers. The head is held high, the chin slightly drawn in toward the 
neck, the eyes directed straight ahead and no moving in the head, and the 
muscles of the face slightly and uniformly tensed. Chest is out, the muscles 
of the body slightly tensed and the diaphi-agm raised. The backbone is not to 
be stiffened. 

If a preparatory command is given, the call of a leader or the command 
"Ready", not preceded by "Attention", the SB man stands still. 

(2) At ease Command: "Stand at ease!" 

Execution : The left foot is moved forward and to the side. The body is re- 
laxed. The movement is executed just as rapidly and correctly as any other 
command. The uniform is adjusted by slight twitches; there is no talking or 
unnecessary movement. The arms are not crossed over the breast. 

(3). Turning without moving iorward or backtcard: 

Command : "Right — face !" Execution : Raise the foot a very little from the 
ground, throw the right foot slightly to the right and at the same time turn 
the body on the left heel ninety degrees to the right. Bring the right foot side- 
wise to the stationary foot at the conclusion of the turn. 

C'ommand : "Left — face!" Execution: The turn to the left is made on the 
left heel. After the execution of the turn the right foot is brought up from be- 
hind to the stationary foot. 

Command: "Whole detachment — turn!" Execution: Just as in the case of 
"Left — face", only with a turn of one hundred eighty degrees. After the turn 
the command "At ease" is to be given, so that the bearing can be improved. 

(4). Changes of gaze: 

Commands: "Eyes — right!" "Eyes — left!" Execution: Turn the head with a 
jerk to the right or left until the gaze is directed freely in the direction ordered. 
Attitude of the body remains unchanged. 

Command: "Eyes — front!" Execution: The head is returned with a jerk to 
the original position. The return movement of the head and the eyes Is accom- 
plished simultaneously. 

(5). Stepping off: 

Command: (Examples) "To the left— step off!" "To the right— step off!" 
"Forward— step off !" "To the rear— step off !" "Into the field— step out !" The 
command may be given with additions as desired. Execution : The turn required 
by the order and three quick steps in the direction commanded. 

(H). Types op Marching and Makching Movements 

In the. Bund there are three types of marching. 

(a) Broken step; 

(b) In step; 

(c) Strictly in step (not pai-ade step). 

The march is broken step is used in fields, on bad roads, on bridges and during^ 
marches of some length. Carriage and forward movement are not affected. 



APPENDIX — PART IV 1617 

Marching in step is the commonest type for marching through towns and dur- 
ing drills. 

Marching in strict step is used in marching past, when displaying honors, and 
for training during drills over short "distances. 

(1) March commands: 

Command : "In step — march" Execution : The movement is started with the 
left foot, T<7(77(Owf emphasizing the first step. Pace 80 cm. (32 inches). 114 steps 
to a minute. The body upright and stiff. Eyes directly front. The arms are 
swung easily, with the tingers bent somewhat. The gait is free and easy. 

Command: "Brolien step — march!" Execution: Begin with the left foot, 
without onphasis on the first step. The length of step and the kind of step are 
adapted to the nature of the ground and the physical qualities of the marching 
man. 

Command: "Detachment — march!" (The command for marching in strict 
step). Execution : The left leg is brought forward with the knee rather stiff and 
with the point of the foot directed somewhat outward and downward and is 
placed firmly on the ground without too much noise; the toes touch the ground 
first. When the left foot has been put down the right heel leaves the ground, 
the right leg is moved, .slightly bent, and as before the left leg is brought forward. 
The upper portion of the t>ody remains quiet and stiffly erect, bent slightly for- 
ward. Vertical motion of the upper portion of the body is to be avoided, as the 
weight of the body always remains on the foot that is on the ground until the 
other foot is firmly on the ground. The arms are swung somewhat more stiffly 
than in the movenient in step: the hands are swung slightly inward, but not 
above the height of the belt. Pace 80 cm. 114 steps per minute. 

Marching in strict step should by all means first be practiced with very slow 
pace (about 60 steps per minute). During practice the hands are at first kept 
behind the back. 

Command: "Double time — march!" Is used for accelerated movement of 
closed units over short distances. Execution : At the command "Double time" 
the lower arms are slightly bent and the elbows crooked, 160 steps to the minute 
at the double. 

Command: "In — step!" Transition from the double to marching in broken 
step. Execution : After the command, three more quick steps are taken and then 
the men continue to march in broken step. The arms are relaxed. 

Command : "Quick^ — march !" Execution : The OD man runs as fast as possible 
without deviating from the direction of march. If the objective has not been 
designated in detail, the running is continued until the next order is given. ~ 

Command: "Mark— time!" Execution: Without forward movement, the time 
and step are maintained. The feet are hardly to be raised from the ground. 

Cominand: "Free — march!" Execution: At the word "Free" half steps are 
taken ; at the word "march", which is uttered when the left foot is set down, the 
right foot takes one more half step, and then the march is continued freely. 

Command: "Detachment — halt!" Execution: The command is issued when 
marching in step, when the right foot is set down. The left foot is moved one 
step further forward and the right foot then drawn up quickly. The OD man 
stands in the basic position. 

Commands: "Marching in step — attention!", "Attention I", "Eyes — right!" or 
"Eyes — left!" "At — ease !" These commands are given in the above sequence only 
during a marching past. If the march is being performed in broken step, the 
command "In step" is first given, then "Attention", whereupon the strict march 
in step is taken up and the left hand grasps the belt. The hand rests one hand's 
width to the left of the belt buckle, with the fingers close together, extending 
diagonally upward in front of the belt, with the thumb behind it. At the com- 
mand "Eyes — right !" or "Eyes — left !" the leader is looked at in whose honor the 
march past is held. During a march past only the detachment commander raises 
his arm in salute. At the command "At ease — march !" the hands are quickly 
lowered and the heads and eyes directed straight ahead at the same moment. 
The march is continued in step. 

(2) Turn when marching. 

Command : "Right — face !" Execution : When marching in step, the command 
"face" is given as the right foot is set down, the next step is taken straight ahead ; 
the turn is executed on the baU of the left foot. 

Command : "Left — face !" Execution : When marching in step, the command 
"face" is given as the left foot is set down. The next step is taken straight 
ahead ; the turn is executed on the ball of the right foot.

(3) Changes of formation and order of march: ., 

Command : "Form in one line !" or "Form in two lines !'" Execiitio-n : The man 
on the right wing of the first rank takes position three paces in front of the com- 
manding ofiicer ; the OD men place themselves side by side in a line to the left of 
the wing man, dressing and keeping elbow touch in the line. The distance be- 
tween ranks in 80 cm. from the back of the man in the front rank to the breast 
of the one nearest him. (The length of an outstretched arm). 

Command : "Form in tw'o lines !" Execution : The man on the right wing takes 
position three paces in front of the commanding ofiicer. The OD men line up in 
two lines one behind the other at the proper distance and direction from the 
leading man. 

OD men standing in line beside each other touch very lightly the bent elbows of 
their neighbors (elbow touch). The distance from the man in front to the nearest 
man in rank and file amounts to 80 cm. from back to breast. 

"Fall in" includes the command "Press" and therefore signifies: adjusting posi- 
tion with relation to the man on the right wing and to any man who may be in 
advance, and standing at attentiori until a further command is given. 

Command: "In single rank left (or right)- — form!" (For changing from a 
file to a i-ank). (Command with or without "double quick"). Execution: The 
foremost OD man marches straight ahead, but takes short steps, until the men 
behind him have run up to the left (or right) of him to form a line and have taken 
direction. 

Command : "Count off by threes !" Execution : the right file leader begins the 
counting. He takes the basic position, calls out his number with a short movement 
of the head to the left and stands at ease. 

Command: "By squads right (left) wheel— march !" Execution: at the com- 
mand "by squads right wheel — march", the right tile leader (No. 1) makes a turn 
on the spot in three steps. No. 2 and No. 3 at the same time march up to the left of 
No. 1 in three steps and half. At the command "by squads left wheel — march", 
No. 3 makes the turn on the spot in three steps; No. 2 and No. 1 march up to 
the right of No. 3 in three steps. 

Command: "detachment — march!" Execution: The right file leader is respon- 
sible for the direction of march ; he has to march exactly behind the front rank 
man. Distance between squads amounts to three paces. 

Command: "Right wheel (or left wheel) — march!" Execution: The right (or 
left) file leader turns until the command "straight — ahead" is given. The fol- 
lowing file leaders on the inner side turn exactly at the same spot where the first 
file leader executed the turn. 

Command: "Placed in rank.s — right (or left) face!" This is the command 
for reforming a column of squads into a double rank. Execution : At the command 
"placed in ranks — right face", the right file leader (No. 1) of the first, third and 
other ranks with odd numbers goes straight ahead at the word "face", while No. 2 
and No. 3 of those ranks execute a right-face and then, marching one behind the 
other, swing in behind No. 1. The right file leader (No. 1) of the second, fourth 
and the other even-number ranks makes a turn half to the right and moves to the 
right of the man ahead of him, while No. 2 and No. 3 of those ranks first make a 
right turn and then march after him, one behind the other. 

At the command "placed in ranks — left face", the procedure corresponds to 
the above, excfept that the left file leader (No. 3) goes straight ahead and No. 2 
and No. 1 make a turn to the left. 

Command: "In column of squads — right (or left) form!" This is the com- 
mand for changing a double rank into a column of squads. Execution : The 
above procedure reversed. At the command "in column of squads — right form", 
at the word "form", the right file of the first, fourth, and every third rank goes 
straight ahead, the man beside him moves behind him, and the others form to 
the right beside them. At the command "in column of squads — left form", the 
corresponding movements are made toward the left side. 

(4) Assembly with colors: 

(a) Commands for entry with the colors: "Detachment — halt!" "Color 
squad— front !" "Flags— down !" "At— ease!" Execution: The OD halts ten 
paces in advance of the stage and marks time until the color squad has marked 
to its post. Where conditions will permit, the color squad marches straight 
ahead of the stage, crosses the center of the stage, and crosses lines at the rear 
end of the stage. The crossing is necessary because the American flags, facing 
toward the assemblage, are to stand on the left, as seen by the public. In

crossing lines, the bearer of the American flag moves first, ine ueaieis of 
the American flags march to the left, and the bearers of the Bund flags to 
riglit, until they reach their posts. All flag bearers mark time until the com- 
mand "Halt!" is given. 

(b) Conwiands for marching off tvith colors: "OD — Attention !", "(Colors — 
over !", "Color squad left and right — face", the bearers of the American flags 
face to the right and the bearers of the Bund flags to the left (away from 
the center of the stage). At the command "detachment — march", the flag 
bearers make a counter-march, until they again reach the rear center of the stage, 
cross, but not as in entering, but wheel beside each other and march down from 
the stage as they have come. The color squad marches toward the middle OD 
column, makes a turn to the left in front of it for a counter-march, and then 
marks time until a further command is given. At the command "march", the 
colors are taken on the right shoulder. When marching in, marching out, and 
marching past, the colors are borne in the "present" position. At the command 
"colors — over", the flag is snapped into the "present" position. Execution : The 
flag is standing beside the right foot, and is held with the right hand. In so 
doing, the arm is extended downward. At the command "over", the flag is 
raised quickly with the right hand ; the arm remains somewhat extended. At 
the same instant the left hand grasps the flag-pole ; the left arm, at a right 
angle, horizontally is raised to the level of the shoulder with the hand extended 
flat and the flag-pole clasped between the thumb and the index finger. 

The command "colors — over" applies likewise to the squads of musicians and 
the band. 

In all entries, etc., strict attention is to be paid to having the American flags 
always carried and always stood at the right or in front, in the direction of 
march or the direction in which the assembled color squads are looking. 

Let it also be impressed upon every color-bearer that the American flag is not to 
be dipped during any honors. 

COLOR GUARD, HALL AND STAGB GUARD 

(5) (a) stage and hall guard: OD men on duty stand firmly with legs spread 
apart and hands folded behind them. 

(b) Color guard : Men on duty stand firmly with legs spread apart, the fiag-pole 
held with the right hand, which extends downward in a natural position ; the left 
hand is at the side or on the belt. 

(6) Relief of the guard: Relief of any guards takes place only during fixed in- 
termissions or between speeches. 

(a) Relief of hall and stage guards: Every man on duty assumes the basic posi- 
tion as soon as he sees the relief marching in. The relieving men march up 
directly in front of those on duty. All those relieving at the same time face right 
or left in the direction of those on guard. At the same moment every man on 
guard takes a side step to the right. The man relieving him takes a step forward 
and faces about ; at the same time the man being relieved likewise takes one pace 
forward and turns to the right or the left, in the direction from which the relief 
has come. The men relieved march off in close order ; those who liave just come 
on guard remain in the basic position until those relieved have marched away. 

(b) Relief of color guard: At the moment at which the relief stands in front 
of the man on duty and turned toward the latter, and before the man on duty who 
is to be relieved takes the prescribed step to the right, the latter presents the color 
and hands it over with a snappy movement to the person relieving him. Other- 
wise the relief takes place as explained above. No saluting is done during the 
relieving. 

(I) Protection of Hall 

(1) (a) — Color guard, stage guard, hall guard. OD men detailed for guard 
duty never leave their posts until they have been relieved in the regulation 
manner, except when they are ordered away by the Group Leader on duty. 
Even in case of disturbances in a meeting these men must remain at their 
posts. Specially strong protection is to be placed before flags and before 
stages. 

(b) Roving details: At every meeting, in addition to the above guards, a 
roving detail is to be established. It is the duty of the roving detail to eject 
disturbers of order. 



1620 UN-AMERICAN PROPAGANDA ACTIVITIES 

(c) Employment: Except at specially large meetings, different OD groups 
are to be used in alternation for guard duty or duty on roving details, in 
order not to call on the whole section for duty at every meeting. 

(2) (a) — Whistle signals for announcement of orders: In order to be able 
to assemble quickly in the open air or in large halls OD men not on duty, 
one blast tvpo seconds long and two short blasts : "_ . .". Every OD man 
not on duty stands up immediately and takes the basic position with his eyes 
turned toward the commanding officer. Immediately after this signal there 
is given either a command, a proclamation, the signal for attack or a repetition 
of the above signal, which means running toward the commander and falling 
in before him. 

(b) Assault signal: Three long blasts: " ". OD men not on duty 

and the roving detachments attack opponents. 

(c) Rally signal: Repeated short blasts: " ". Break off attack 

and form up.
