NEW YORK *NATIONAL WHIRLIGIG

By James McMullin

Extract

CAUSE. The last honors bestowed upon the late Sir Henri Deterding by high German officials furnish eloquent confirmation of the story that he was one of the original financial backers of the Nazi movement. A Dutchman by birth and nationality, he attained the chairmanship of the Royal Dutch (Shell) Oil Co. and was knighted by the British king.

*”National Whirligig,” was the original “news behind the news” column which appeared five days a week.
