This is the first in a series of sensational articles prepared by a staff writer of The Herald in which the anti-semitic work of a Forest Park organization is exposed.-Editor's Note. By BUD SAUER Staff Correspondent This may sound like a fairy tale but as time goes by the facts presented in this column will bear out the statement that from a room in a Forest Park saloon came developments which totally disgust every American. Over beers not many miles from the present site of one of the nation's large torpedo plants, Fritz Gissibl organized his first violently anti-semitic German society. It was in 1933 that Gissibl, a worker in a Chicago printing plant, became a customary bar figure on Forest Park's Madison street While friendly calla of "Hi Fritz" greeted him, Fritz was in reality plotting ways of leading the village's sons to death before the mighty Hitler boot. It wasn't very long after his first venture in the pro-Germanic movements that Fritz succeeded Reinhold Walter as the head of the Friends of New Germany. The name of the organization is sufficient description. This succession took place in 1935, when Gissibl had finally managed to arm himself with his American citizenship first papers. From this position came one of Fritz's pet brain childs, the Deutscher Konsum Vergand. The Vergand was an organization of consumers pledged to buy only from German merchants. Involved in the organization's plans, however, was not only this act of loyalty to brother Germans but the fact that by a system of coupons, the Friends society was able to acquire enough funds to carry on their work without bothering the old country. Many Forest Park merchants felt the pressure put on them during those years to use the coupon system. Some did, but many did not. In 1934, Reinhold Walter, then the president of Friends of New Germany, said of our Forest Park Bar patron, "he is the real head of the anti-semitic German movement in the United States." Two years later when Fritz Kuhn, the former mid-west director of the Friends became Bundesfuehrer, Fritz Gissibl vanished into his native Germany where today he remains "one of Hitler's heels." Another one of the Forest Park hangerson was Ernest Ten Eicken, one time president of the Einheitsfront. Ten Eicken never did live in Forest Park but he spent many evenings in a local hall where the boys held their meet- .(Continued on next page) Maywood All Stars to Play Oak Park Monday for Title Charity Contest Features Squad of League Vets By DON MURPHY Sports Editor The work is over . . . the fun begins. For the last two weeks Jr. Civil Defense Embodying the work their mothers and fathers do in civilian defense work, Maywood girls and boys this week organized a Junior Civilian Defense organization to "help win the war." The club will be active in collection of scrap metal, rubber, paper, and grease which will be turned over to the government. Tom Lesh, secretary of the club announced that the club each Friday 1206 South 2nd avenue. be between the ages of 9 and 15 and must pledge to vital materials, collect and buy War Bonds. Maywood Men Leave of Proviso Film at Lido Friday "Backing Up the Guns," a sound picture produced by the Illinois Education association and featuring many students of Proviso Township High school, will have its world premiere showing at the Lido theatre starting tomorrow (Friday) and continuing through Tuesday, September 1. Shown as an added feature to the regular program at the Lido, "Backing Up the Guns" shows the contribution the nation's schools are making to the war effort. The filming was done last spring in four schools in Illinois, but the majority of the movie shows classes in action at Proviso. Drawing a parallel between the training now being given in the armed forces of the United States and the preliminary training given in the schools, the picture clearly shows how the schools are "Backing Up the Guns" by training skilled workers, guarding public health, maintaining the ideals of democracy, and registering citizens for essential commodities and for selective service. After a sneak preview held on Monday, August 17, Superintendent E. R. Sifert said, "This picture, 'Backing Up the Guns,' should be seen by everyone who believes in a democracy and who believes in maintaining that democracy." the managers, umpires, recreation officials and this writer have been working out all-star squads which are now ready to be announced and also ready for combat with their foe. In the opinion of the managers and umpires the best players from the "A," "B" and Veterans' leagues have been rounded up for a triple-header ball game to be played at Parichy stadium Monday night, August 31. The entire net proceeds will be turned over to the Bataan Clan and Maywood send-off committee, three rip snorters. It is hard to decide which really is the main attraction. The "B" league will open festivities with a duel with the Melrose Park Redbirds. The Reds feature such former Proviso stars as Bob Brust, Chuck Paetz, the Three D'Anzas, and Joe Derrico. Although these stars are more used to the regular hard ball, they have been known to knock 12-inch baseballs far and wide. With such powerful left-handed talent as Paetz and Derrico, that short right field fence should take quite a beating. The game will start at 7 o'clock. Pete Bandringa, reputedly the best umpire, not only in Maywood, but in the whole suburban area, will manage; the "B" league squad and that leaves nothing wanting as far as Maywood is concerned. He has a squad of the 20 best players in Maywood's number two league and should use them for every ounce of good he can get out of them. Probably, the most interest rests with the second game between the Oak Park all-stars and the "A" league at 8:30. It has long been the opinion of many that Maywood has Oak Park beat every way and upside down when Junk Pickup Begins Here on Monday Place all your junk-anything from rubber heels to cement mixers-on the curb in front of your home this week if you live in Maywood. Village trucks will begin pickup of scrap material Monday, proceeds to go to the Civilian Defense fund for operation. Search your cellars, attics and yards for anything metal or rubber - wire, broken toys, stoves, pipes, etc. Maywood Civilian Defense Will benefit after this junk is sold to markets for the highest price. This is your opportunity to clean out your cellar and aid the war effort at the same time. Chairman of the local salvage committee is Harry Staup, village comptroller Staup's efforts materialized the plan to bombard the Japs with scrap from Maywood. This drive is part of the national effort and will be conducted in Bellwood, Westchester, Forest Park and other towns in Proviso township. It will utilize every available scrap of metal and rubber by turning it into guns, planes, ships and bullets. So let's start looking for any and all scrap that will build bombs to shell the axis. Here's a Mother Whose Record Says-American! it comes to good ball players. This will give the Parkers a chance to prove we are wrong ... if so It will also give the Maywood fans a chance to see their boys in action . . . the best all at the same time, ... a manager's dream. Del Wrobke, whose coaching and umpiring experience in the suburbs makes him one of the top sportsmen in Maywood, will be at the helm of the Maywood team. He will have at his command one of the most powerful combinations ever assembled in this part of the country. With Lefty Miller and Bob Young powering drives toward that short fence and Dave Bangart, Al Miller and company batting from the other side, no outfielder will be safe inside the park. But, after this contest has been finished, there is still more. Maywood will present its veterans' 16-inch all-stars who will face a powerful aggregation from Melrose Park. Although the Maywood league is primarily for older men, they are by no means past the age where their playing days are behind them. Such stars as Joe Wrobke, Del Most, and Lefty Miller can show the best Melrose knows something about hitting . . . and fielding. The Melrose team will be made up of much younger players, many of whom will probably come from that same Redbird team which plays earlier. It will be a big night ... a great one for the fans ... a better one for the Bataan Clant Symbolizing the dynamic spirit found in the fighting women on the home front is Mrs. Emil Riley of 332 South 27th avenue, Bellwood-a villager whose record says American and points to Victory! Mrs. Riley has (1) been a USO worker (2) Minute Man (3) Red Cross War Relief worker (4) clerk in sugar registration (5) clerk in draft registration (6) Salvation Army Tag Day worker; she is a regular purchaser of stamps and bonds from the American Bataan Clan, bakes cakes each week for the Chicago Service Men's Center and wears a silver lapel badge of the American Red Cross, signifying her third donation of blood to be made into plasma. Untiring, Mrs. Riley arises as early as 5 a.m. the mornings Bellwood Board 7 inducts selectees. She makes coffee for the group and assists in distributing cigarettes to the men. The cigarettes are donated by Bellwood residents and are collected from boxes place in Workmans and Andersons drug stores and Les and Eve's. Recently she aided in the Irish American Day celebration at which Lieut. Emmett F. Gibson of Maywood was feted. In front of Mrs. Riley's home villagers will find a plaque honoring the eight men from the 27 and 28th avenue blocks who are serving in the armed forces. They are: Gottlieb Scheonwolf, John Wede, Fred Wede, Arthur Kowal, Henry Krutsch, Elmer Reimer, Henry Enders and Eddy Lata. This volunteer work for Victory is in comparison to many whose chief worry seems to be what to serve at their bridge club meetings. Readers who think Mrs. Riley has time on her hands will be interested to hear she has two sons, grade school age.
