From the daily paper: "[The] president of Young Republican club doesn't appear to be getting unduly roiled at this picture of Adolf Hitler in the German bungalow, House of Pacific Relations, Balboa Park.

"When San Diego County Democratic club protested against the display of the portrait to W.A. Perry, park superintendent, a number of young Republicans, taking their sense of humor along, went to the bungalow to view the bogey-man and to hold a plebiscite on the relative value of the fray.

"Perry has notified the Democrats, in effect, that if local Germans want to admire pictures of Hitler, there is little park officials can do about it."
