IN SAAR BATTLE
SAARBRUECKEN.—Street battles be
tween anti-fascists and Nazis in which two
were killed and at least 100 injured marked
New Year's day in the Saar, it was learned

and iron rods were used in the bitter batt
ling that took place.
Police joined with the Nazis in most
cases in battling the anti-fascists who
campaigning for the maintenance of the
status quo in the Saar. Further battles
until the plebiscite on Jan. 13 are expected.
Shots were exchanged in Eusdorf, where
23 anti-fascists and Nazis were injured.

.FACTORY 14 DAYS
SALONIKI, Greece.—A strike of 370
Workers who occupied a tobacco factory for
14 days was ended last week when police
broke down a wall to force their way into
the building. The strike had been handled
so perfectly from the start, with various
committees detailed for strike activities,
control of lood and water and other activi
ties, that Greek authorities were at a loss
to describe the situation until
thought of the word "soviet."

NEW STORM TROOPERS
BERLIN.— Following the report that
members of the storm troopers and the spe
cial guards were to be deprived of their
Christmas furloughs, comes the news that
the number of detachments of the Schutz
Staffel aimed with revolvers has been in
creased. Meanwhile, those not yet fully
> familiary with the management of arms
are to be passed through the necessary
training as quickly as possible. The new
repressive measures have created a great
ferment among rank and file storm troop
ers.

the Communist party of German has is
sued a statement which exposes the winter

ITALIAN PEASANTS ARM TO
RESIST NEW TAXES
FIUME, Jai, 4.—At Snidarscina, near
here, Italian peasants are rising in protest
against newly imposed taxes. In the wine
district of Vipacco and of Sarso the law
which prohibited the sale of wine under 10
lira encountered such violent opposition
that the government was compelled to
withdraw it. Twenty-xwo peasants from
Kavran, having Idlled their pigs without
paying taxes, prepared to defend them
selves arm in hand.
The authorities pre
ferred to leave them in peace.
The peasants of Cotchinitch in a pitched
battle, defended a peasant named Kanfal
against carabiniers and the militia
men.
Kanfal had refused to pay the penalty of
400 lire for his son who refused to follow
the pre-military course.

FiEMINGTON N , . •
i-EMiNbiuN, N. j., Jan. 4.—
Winiam Randolph Hearst is con
i u mg 0 t le legal defense of
llauptman, defendant in the sen
national kidnaping trial here to
day, it was learned from reliable
sources. Certain facts in posses
sion of the Communist party in-i
dic-te that Bruno Hauptmann was
a ïeadmg figure in American Nazi
on Z chapgY TnÄTS
Lindbergh baby, and that the Lind
lergh ransom money was used to
finance Nazi activities in this
country. j
T. e political ramifications of the
trial are now extending in two
parallel lines, which are bound to
mnet in the next few weeks. On
the one hand. Hearst is prepared
to move heaven and earth to have
the Nazi, Hauptmann, acquitted of
the charge of murdering th e baby
son of a mon who ha s been tramp
ed up as "the most popular hero
of this time." On the
500 Reporters
the slug of poison, amounting to
more than a million words a day,
with which approximately 500 cap
italist newspapers represented here
are trying to temporarily drown
the minds of the American masses,
will be used to cover up the en
actment by congress of anti-Com
mumst laVs, which will be pushed
by Hearst in alliance with Wall
Street.
The desperate fight which Reilly,
the Hauptmann lawyer, will make
to free Hauptmann, was clearly
evident during the proceedings of
today's session.
Reilly Insinuates
Subjecting Lindbergh to severe
cross-examination, Reilly insinuât
ed so strongly that the body of
the baby found mar the Lirdbergh j
estate was not th e body of the
Lindbergh baby at all, but the body
of a child bom of extra-marital
relations between the Lone Eagle 1
and Betty Gow, the Lindbergh,
rursemaid. The audience at one j
point in the questioning broke j
through the heavy decorum of the :
court to applaud Lindbergh vigor- j
ously when he answered sharply. I
Realizing that he had over- !
stepped the bounds of tact in thus !
launching a sudden attack on the
popular aviator, Reilly softened
his questions for the remainder of
the evening session. They made
it clear that he would return toi
the attack at the first opportun- ,
ity. 1
"Inside" Job
Reilly is openly admitting that
he will try to prove that the mur
der of the Lindbergh baby was an
"inside" job, performed by five
people, and that the inception of
a kidnaping took place in the Lind
bergh kitchen. Since there were
only five people in the Lindbergh
home on the night of the kidnap
ing, and since two of these people
were Lindbergh and his wife, the
direction of Reilly's attack is
greater, notwithstanding his state
ment, over-attended, as if it were
an afterthought, that the Lind
berghs hemselves were not involv
ed.
Reilly will next probably ques
tion Lindbergh about Violet Sharp,
maid at the home of his mother
ir-law, Mrs. Dwight W. Morrow
(wife of the late partner of J. P.
Morgan) who committed suicide
after confessing that she had lied
about her wher r ahouts on the
night of the kidnaping.
Prosecutor Wilentz, in his ques
tion. yesterday of Mrs. Lindbergh,
tried to discount in advance any
attempt that Reilly will make to
prove a rumor to the effect that
the Lindbergh baby Was sub-nor
mal and a deaf mute, on question- j
ing Mrs. Lindbergh as to the nor- 1
malcy of the child. Wilentz's cues- !
tions on this point, and Mrs. Lind- \
bergV? answers, follow:
