This chapter seeks to identify the dynamics of mustering allies at a local level for the Austrofascist cause, reviewing as a case study the current of the movement in Salzburg. The Salzburger Volksblatt was representative of a German-nationalist milieu whose cultural and intellectual roots lay in the Bohemian and Moravian lands. Its owner, Hans Glaser (1877–1960), who was part of the younger German nationalists, infused Salzburg's liberal associational culture with the pan-German ideas they had brought along from the borderlands. His political connections with German nationalists in the inter-war period tended to be formed through expediency rather than ideology. Glaser joined the Greater German party after its inauguration in Salzburg in 1920, partly because the party leadership informed him that paper quotas would be allocated only to those newspapers that enjoyed political patronage. Quite paradoxically, for the owner of a German-nationalist newspaper, he maintained amicable terms with various prominent Christian Social elements.
