    Background: AN ELECTION RALLY OF WEST GERMANY'S EXTREME RIGHT WING NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY BROKE UP IN BRAWLING AT A HUGE MUNICH BEER HALL LAST NIGHT (THURSDAY) WHEN SOME PARTY SUPPORTERS ATTEMPTED TO THROW HECKLERS OUT OF THE HALL.

    THE MEETING WAS HELD IN SUPPORT OF CANDIDATES OF THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY (N.P.D.) FOR THE BAVARIAN STATE ELECTIONS ON NOVEMBER 20TH. LAST SUNDAY THE N.P.D. WON A MAJOR AND UNEXPECTED BREAKTHROUGH IN THE HESSE STATE ELECTIONS. IT ATTRACTED NEARLY EIGHT PER CENT OF THE POLL.

    LAST NIGHT'S RALLY IN MUNICH WAS HELD ONE DAY AFTER THE 43RD ANNIVERSARY OF THE NAZI MUNICH PUTSCH, WHEN ADOLF HITLER TRIED TO SEIZE POWER FROM THE BAVARIAN GOVERNMENT.

    ABOUT 30 YOUNG PEOPLE AND STUDENTS WERE DRAGGED OUT AND THE BRAWLING ENDED ONLY AFTER POLICE WERE CALLED IN. THE STUDENTS OFTEN INTERRUPTED SPEECHES OF THE PARTY LEADERS, AMONG THEM THE CHAIRMAN FRITZ THIELEN, CHANTING "OLD NAZIS".

    HERR THIELEN ROUSED DERISIVE CHEERS FROM THE STUDENTS AND WILD ENTHUSIASM FROM PARTY MEMBERS WHEN HE ANNOUNCED THAT HE WAS PREPARED TO HOLD COALITION TALKS WITH DR. KURT GEORG KIESINGER, THE CANDIDATE OF THE RULING SOCIAL DEMOCRATS TO SUCCEED CHANCELLOR LUDWIG ERHARD.

    (THE N.P.D. HAS NO MEMBERS IN THE WEST GERMAN PARLIAMENT BUT IS GOING TO SEND EIGHT DEPUTIES INTO THE NEW HESSE PARLIAMENT).
