"It is partly because of the many protests made against the German regime in other countries that those in power have been aroused to such radical action," declared S. B. Fay '96, Professor of History, in a recent CRIMSON interview. "It really is none of any other country's business. Protest meetings such as have been held in this country and in England, and even such denouncement of the Hitler movement as was made by Chamberlain the other day merely add fuel to the fire. It shows a stupid ignorance of history on the part of those protesting--for it is to be remembered that it was the severe condemnation of the outer world which led to the final supremacy of Lenin in Russia, with his Bolshevist movement, and which finally led to the victory of the French revolutionists in 1789. Similarly, the Jewish boycott is the immediate reply of the Hitlerites to the meddling of other nations.
"The national revolution, which followed Hitler's sweeping victory at the polls, is merely a protest on the part of the Germans against the conditions under which they have labored for fourteen years--the conditions of the Versailles treaty forced upon them by the Allies. This is Germany's answer.
