In an Interview here, he said he had no conclusive evidence that such an organization existed. But, he added, he would urge In forth¬ coming' talks with West Oerman . leaders that they start a vigorous Investigation pn. OOLDBIANN, who will meet with (Chancellor Konrad Adenauer this month, said he ^•ould also urge concentrated edu¬ cational efforts In West Germany to eradicate antl-Semltlsm among German youth. For a long time, he said, there have been suspicions that large sums were smugged out of de¬ feated Germany by fleeing Nazis, and that these funds were 'being used to finance neo-Nazi and anti- . Semitic activities. He said some benefit might b* (CTfnUntfed an p«lt« «) treatment If that is what they need." (Commissioner Kennedy Issued his orders at a ceremony at police headquarters, swearing In 97 new recruits to the police force. With all of the department's leading conmumders present, (Commission¬ er Kennedy stated: "TODAV, WE are faced with another disruptive Influence In a democracy. I refer to threats to houses of worship. Sec to It that every member of the force who walks a post Is alerted to this condition. "I believe that the desecration of houses of worship of any faith Is nothing more than cowardice by some Individuals who seek to sow confualon ahd discord. I am equally certain that these acts will have the reverse effect, and will only Impose upon our people the necessity of cherishing the precious heritage of freedom of P In our democracy, men and women of all faiths, I know, will join in combatting any threat to the liberty of any of us who wor¬ ship In peace and freedom. They look td their police as the front line to guard all people In the exercise of their fundamental rights. "I AM EQUALLY certain that the culprits themselves represent only themselves. I believe these ar^lsolated Instances. I do not think that they represent any group or plan of action. I am sure that they are just Irresponsible Individuals. However, see to it that they get the full measure of justice, or mental treatment if that is what they need." (Commissioner Keimedy's state¬ ment waa voiced after he had re¬ ceived from Mayor Robert F. Wagner a request for a prompt and complete report on the spate of antl-Semltlc Incidents In New York. The mayor aliso requested the city's (Commission on* Inter¬ group Relations to investigate these "vicious acts" and report "as rapidly aS possible." "The desecration of a religious Institution," stated the mayor, "Is a shameful and cowardly aot. We cannot and will not- permit a renaissance of Hitlerism, here or anywhere else In the world. We paid too high a price to crus^ it."
