Dec. 26— UP! — Americans have staked out an un official claim against Hitler & Co for more than $1,000,000,000 and the final total is expected to be much larger. The Treasury, reporting tonight on the latest tabulation of its census of American-owned proper ty abroad, placed the volue of U. S. investment in the sixx Axia countries at $1,070,398,668. Of tha* amount $769,912,474 is invested in Germany—well above the $450,000. 000 value of all known Axis as sets in this country. The census returns by them selves do not constitute formal claims. The Treasury’s study was un dertaken to determine the extent of this country’s financial stake all over the globe—both as a war aid and peace table guide. The over-all total thus far tabu lated runs in excess of $9,200,000, 000, representing investments in 121 countries, but even this figure is incomplete by “several billions,’’ the department said, explaining that all reports have not yet been reviewed and that extensions have been granted a number of cor porations and individuals because of the complexity of their proper ty interests. More than a third of all U. §. interest—$3,112,000,000—is invested in Canada, and $623,000,000 in Eng land. American investments ex ceed $100,000,000 in each of thn 18 other countries. Latin American countries ao ceunt for an aggregate of $2,494, 000,000, topped by a $614,000,000 figure for Cuba with Brazil next at $337,000,000. United States holdings in Argen tine—only western hemisphere na tion still maintaining relations with the Axis—totaled $311,000,000 by latest count. In Bolivia—scene of last week’s revolt—they aggregate only $32,000,000. Smallest total for any country was a $4 investment listed in Transjordan, but no one at the Treasury could recall what it rep resented — and the foreign funds control people were too busy to look it up. -V ASSASSIN HONORED ALGIERS, Dec. 26 —UR— Many high officials of Gen.
