  • Description

    HERR ADOLF VON THADDEN, THE WEST GERMAN RIGHT WING LEADER, WAS YESTERDAY (MONDAY), MOBBED BY DEMONSTRATORS AS HE CAMPAIGNED FOR NEXT SUNDAY'S (SEPTEMBER 29) LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS IN HANOVER.

    DURING THE OPEN-AIR RALLY, HERR VON THADDEN WAS PELTED WITH TOMATOES BY THE YOUNG DEMONSTRATORS. AFTER A RUBBER BALL HAD BEEN THROWN AT HIM HERR VON THADDEN REPLIES: "THIS COUNTRY HAD TO ENDURE THE MOST TOTAL DEFEAT ANY NATION AND IT RECONCILED ITSELF TO IT BETTER THAN ANY OTHER NATION.

    "NOW PEOPLE ARE BEING BROUGHT UP IN THIS WAY TO BEHAVE LIKE A HOARD OF DIRTY RUFFIANS."
    HERR VON THADDEN, THE LEADER OF THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WAS ALSO HOWLED DOWN BY YOUNGSTERS AT AN ELECTION MEETING IN CELLE.

    THEY SHOUTED "SEIG HEIL - SEIG HEIL", BLEW SOAP BUBBLES, AND HELD UP DECORATED UMBRELLAS WITH CARICATURES OF ADOLF HITLER, WAVING THEM DERISIVELY AT THE PLATFORM WHERE HERR VON THADDEN ATTEMPTED TO ADDRESS THE CROWD.

    LOWER SAXONY IS A VITAL STRONGHOLD FOR THE N.P.D., IN THEIR CAMPAIGN TO INCREASE THEIR NATIONAL VOTING STRENGTH.
