Alfred Frauenfeld, chief of the Austrian Nazi Party, expresses his support for Austrian Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss dissolving the parliament and assuming dictatorial control of the nation. Frauenfeld and other Nazis hope that a fascist government under Dollfuss is a first step to a Nazi government in Austria and, eventually, unification between Austria and Germany.

Alfred Frauenfeld tells reporters:

"We are glad to see something started at last. Whatever may be the motive of the government's action, it is certain to help us — for it means that things have begun to move."

The Austrian Nazis will be disappointed, however, because Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss is steadfastly hostile towards the Nazi Party and has taken power in order to oppose their goals.
