    Background: Ten members of the "American Nazi Party" were imprisoned in New Orleans, Louisiana, May 24 after their abortive attempt to spoil the opening of a pro-Jewish film "Exodus". Nine "storm troopers" and their "Fushrer", George Lincoln Rockwell - and of Arlington, Virginia - were to be charged with disturbing the peace.

    The group of "nazis", wearing khaki uniforms and swastika armbands, picketed outside the Civic Theatre carrying signs reading: "Exodus written by a Communist Jew", and "America for Whites, Africa for Blacks, Gas Chamber for Traitors".

    But before they could mover more than a dozen steps the demonstrators were searched by police who found a jack-knife and a realistic top pistol. The "hate brigade" members were then taken to prison.
