Berlin, Sept. 16th, 1927 - Alois Hitler, the half-
brother whom Adolf never mentions, also has 
made good in Berlin.
Business is booming at the Tea Room Alois, 
which Alois opened two weeks ago. It is very 
modern and, in small letters over the door, 
there are signs: "Proprietor, Alois Hitler." 
The location is a principal square.

The waiters greet customers with "Heil Hitler", 
but they are cautious about discussing the 
relationship between the boss and Der Fuehrer.
Alois used to have a small cafe which was 
frequented by members of Adolf Hitler's Elite Guard.

German rumor predicts a marriage in the near future 
between Adolf Hitler and the widow of Siegfried 
Wagner, son of the great Richard. When the Nazi 
Chancellor and the lady met on Sunday in Leipzig 
on the fiftieth anniversary of Richard Wagner's 
death, the assembled press thought it was worth 
while to subject the demeanor and conversation 
of the two to particularly close scrutiny. The 
result was neutral.
One piece of indirect corroboration for popular 
report may be had. Hitler received a delegation of 
German newspapermen on Feb. 8 and promised 
them fair treatment in return for good behavior. 
Opposition from within decent limits he was 
prepared for. Bismarck, he said, had the newspapers 
against him when he set out to build German unity, 
and so did Wagner at the beginning of his career.
Why drag in Wagner? To be sure, it is a great name, 
and the fiftieth anniversary was close at hand. Yet 
experts in the Unconscious will have no difficulty 
in proving that Hitler had been thinking of other 
Wagners than Richard. Entire biographies have been 
written on the basis of this kind of proof.
