Investigation into Kurtz's Church Services
World War I; Babel Proclamation; Anti-Germanism; Council of Defense; German Language; Religion; Lutheran Church; Informants
Summerset Township chairman reporting on Kurtz's services. All seems on the up and up, in line with the privileges given him earlier to speak German selectively to older members. He also has demonstrated patriotism in other means.
