From the Archives (September 29, 1921): In Germany

Berlin, September 27 - The Hoschst Dye works which were closed down on the 26th owing to the worker’s exorbitant demand for extra wages have been seized by workmen who allow nobody not even the manager to enter. So far there have been no disorders. The French authorities announced they will not interfere but exhort the workmen to refrain from violence.

Berlin, September 27 - A note of the inter-allied Commission of Control demands that the German police force be immediately reduced to the level demanded by the Entete. It declares that nothing has been done to carry out the stipulations for decentalising the force which is still organised in tactical units and is really a mobile fighting force similar to the Richswer.

London, September 27 - A telegram from Frankfurt says that workmen who took possession of Hoschst Dyeworks do not allow anyone to enter without their consent; but hitherto there has been no disorder. The French authorities have announced that they will not interfere, but have requested the workmen to refrain from violence.
