Schleicher contributed the following gem to a 
clarification... (People) will submit to the greatest 
privations, I think, if only one talks the language that 
touches their hearts... that says Hitler. He says" I will 
lead you to Italy's flowery plains. Such a movement 
must be made use of. People, like individuals, need 
faith. Some people are so afraid of responsibility 
they can't  sleep. I'm not. I don't suffer from insomnia, either.

Hero worship is likewise an integral part of the new 
cult. First among heroes stands Der Fuehrer. His busts 
and pictures are everywhere since he had long since 
abandoned the tactics of 1920-21, when he sought to 
add a mysterious glamour to his personally by forbidding 
the publication of his likeness. Pamphlets, brochures, 
and books without end on his life, character,ancestry, 
horoscope, [unreadable] sayings, and personal habits 
are on display in every bookstore and news stall. 
Literature on Hitler which is purely imaginative, 
"untrue" or in any way derogatory is subject to  
[unreadable]. In march 1934 Frick decrees that the 
name "Fuehrer" must be restricted to Hitler, with 
"leiter" applied to other Nazi officials. It is doubtful 
whether there is a single town in the Reich which does 
not have its Adolf Hitler Strasse or its Adolf Hitler Platz. 
In the official [unreadable] Hitler is a demigod, omniscient, 
omnipotent, infallible.

"Hitler is always right." [unreadable attribution]

[next three paragraphs unreadable]

"In this newly begun chapter of history the German people 
have elected Adolf Hitler as their champion before God. 
(Hans Frank)

"Hitler is lonely. [unreadable] Hitler is like God. (Hans Frank)

Hitler, who generously gave up his salary as Chancellor, 
was believed, in 1932, to have an annual income of more 
than 400,000 marks derived from the royalties on Mein 
Kampf, the profits of the party press, lecture fees, 
donations, party posts and sundry [unreadable] sources. 
Since January 30, 1933, he has probably received more 
than 500,000 marks per year as a net income.
