    HERE ADOLF VON THADDEN AND HIS RIGHT-WING NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY (NDP) EXECUTIVE CONFERENCE IN SECRET AT THE REICHSADLER HOTEL ON SATURDAY NIGHT, AFTER THE BAYREUTH MUNICIPAL COUNCIL BANNED THEM FROM HOLDING THEIR PRE-ELECTION CONGRESS IN THE TOWN.

    THE NDP HAD BOOKED THE BAYREUTH CONGRESS HALL, AN IMPRESSIVE BUILDING IN THE CENTRE OF THE TOWN, FOR ITS CONGRESS, BUT THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL, TRYING TO SHAKE OFF THE UNWELCOME IMAGE AS ONE OF HITLER'S HAUNTS, SUCCESSFULLY PREVENTED THE PARTY FROM USING THE HALL AS THEY HAD NOT PAID THE RENT IN TIME.

    DEPRIVED OF A SITE FOR THE CONGRESS, VON THADDEN AND HIS EXECUTIVE HASTILY ASSEMBLED IN THE SMALL BAYREUTH HOTEL AND DECIDED TO RECONVENE THE CONGRESS AT SCHWABACH, NEAR NUREMBERG, THE FOLLOWING DAY (SATURDAY).

    THE EXECUTIVE MEETING WAS TO PREPARE FOR THE CONFERENCE THAT WILL OPEN THE PARTY'S CAMPAIGN FOR NEXT SEPTEMBER'S FEDERAL ELECTIONS. OPPOSITION TO THE CONGRESS HAD GROWN IN THE TOWN, BANNERS DECLARING "ONE ADOLF IS ENOUGH" AND "BAYREUTH SAYS NO TO NDP" HAD BEEN HUNG IN PROMINENT PLACES.
