"Bavarian Mussolini's" cause in Franconia is Led by Woman
 said to be American..

...In Franconia Hitler's cause is championed by a Mrs. Andrea 
Ellendt, an American. who is the widow of a German Captain 
killed during the war. Mrs Ellendt has earned for herself the 
sobriquet "American Joan of Arc". She has established herself 
in Marktbreit on-the Main and has openly promised her numerous 
followers some fun in the near future in the shape of "a jolly pogrom"

The Bavarian Government is well aware of the Hitler- Ellendt 
movement. with its military features and its revolutionary 
character. but does not feel called uon [sic] to interfere.

Insists Hitler is older than records show"

New Britain, Conn.
Fritz Gruenscheder, local brewery employe [sic], insisted today 
that Chancellor Hitler is seven years older than reference bookes 
indicat. [sic]

Mr Grunscheder said that the Fuehrer will be 56....    .
Both boys were born in Braunau.. and went to school together 
until they were lo [sic] years old...He was born in March and 
Hitler in May of the same year....

I can remember lots of times when we would call Adolf over 
and tell him he could come with us to where there were some 
good apples to be snitched the brewer said. "But Adolf could 
never come. His father worked, for the government and it would 
be bad if he got cought [sic]. It was as if he had to set an example. 
Lots of things like that Adolf had to let go by. But he never was 
a squealer, he never told on us.".

Article by Cyril Brown. gives good account of Hitler' s role in Bavaria.

"Hitler today is taken seriously among all classes of Bavarians...
He is feared by some, enthusiastically hailed as a prophet and 
political economic saviour by others and watched with increasing 
sympathetic interest by the bulk...Hitler has been called the 
Bavarian Mussolini...

He has the rare orator gift.. spellbinding the audiences.. According 
to reliable specialist informant there are probably 400,000 
military tiffles [sic] and 160 cannons concealed... So that some 
fine day Hitler's legionnaires might well make their debut with rifles...

Hitler's strength is in the combination of his undeniable great gift 
as an orator and organizer. He exerts an uncanny control over 
audiences, possessing the remarkable ability, to not only rouse 
the hearers to a fighting pitch of fury but at will to turn right 
around and reduce the same audience to docile calmness and 
good order. A typical instance related: At the height of the 
recent Bavarian Government crisis Hitler was holding a mass 
meeting in  Munich and had worked up the big audience when a 
rumor spread through the hall that he had planned a coup and 
that he would overthrow and seize the government that night 
and was about to give the signal at this rally. His followers 
burst into an enthusiastic uproar, drew and brandished blackjacks 
and revolvers. And with shouts of Heil Hell Heil prepared to 
follow Hitler and storm anything.

With a few electric words he worked a magic change in the 
audience. Their duty, on which the success of the cause depended, 
he said, was from discipline and implicit obedience, to orders 
when orders were given. The time for action had not come yet. 
And the riot was nipped in the bud.... 

Hitler . .has another asset...he is a man of the common people.. 
won the Iron Cross I and II Class.....
