German Airliner
And Bodies of 11
Are Found in Alps
Craft Is Identified as
The D-ALUS, Missing
Since February 25
By the Associated Press.
NICE, France, March 4.—The
wreckage of a German airliner and
t-he bodies of 11 victims were found
today in the Alps near Roubillon,
close to the Italian frontier, and
tonight French official investigators
Identified the craft as the missing
The D-Alus, a tri-motored com
mercial plane, left the Island of
Mallorca, off Spain's northeast
coast, on a scheduled flight to Genoa
February 25. but vanished before
reaching its goal.
Disappeared February 25.
February 25 the air ministry in
Berlin announced a German airliner
marked D-Alus had disappeared
over the Mediterranean, but failed
to state where the plane had taken
off or where it was going. Lufthansa,
Germany's only commercial airline,
said the plane was not one of theirs.
A patrol of Alpine Chasseurs of
the French Army found the wreckage
in a fortified zone opposite the
Italian frontier over which all save
French Army planes are forbidden
to fly.
Nine bodies, burned so that, they
could not be identified immediately,
were/ound in the plane's cabin, and
two others, one of a woman, were
found some distance from the
wreckage, indicating these two per
sons may have jumped as a crash
seemed inevitable.
Apparently Lost in Fog.
Officials said the pilot apparently
lost his way in a fog and crashed
into the mountains while circling
low to seek bearings.
The last message Berlin had re
ported receiving from the plane said
it was over the Mediterranean. On
the same day, however. French air
and army observers asked all posts
in the southern French zone to
watch for a German plane which
flew over Toulouse too high for its
license numbers to be read.
Toulouse is far off the plane's
normal sea route, but French offi
cials said tonight they now believe
the plane sighted was the D-Alus.

“torture reprieve" from the electric

The statement brought a storm of
