BERLIN, Feb. 7. --Henry Ford was accused of financing a Bavarian monarchist revolution by Herr Auer, Vice President of the Bavarian Diet, who came to Berlin today to report to President Ebert on the situation. Herr Auer informed The Tribune that Henry Ford's financial as well as moral backing had been given to Bavarian revolution-makers during the past year because a part of the program of Herr Hitler, leader of the Monarchists, is the extermination of the Jews in Germany.

Herr Auer, who twice escaped assassination by Bavarian Monarchists, in commenting on the arrest of two of Herr Hitler's lieutenants, on whom French francs and American dollars were found, said:

"The Bavarian Diet has long had information that the Hitler movement was partly financed by an American anti-semetic chief, who is Henry Ford. Mr. Ford's interest in the Bavarian anit-Jewish movement began a year ago when one of Mr. Ford's agents seeking to sell Ford tractors came in contact with Dietrich Eichart, the notorious Pan-German, shortly after Herr Eichart asked Mr. Ford's agent for financial aid. The agent returned to America and immediately Mr. Ford's money began coming to Munich.

"Herr Hitler openly boasts of Mr. Ford's support and praises Mr. Ford not as a great individualist but as a great anti-Semite. A photograph of Mr. Ford hangs in Herr Hitler's quarters in Cornelius Street, which is the centre of the monarchist movement."
