"WASHINGTON'S I
PLUMBING CODE I
INSURES YOU" I
THE MASTER PLUMBER IS TOLD how to run his business. He is an expert
in his craft. Yet he insists, in his responsibility for the'public health, that his
every working move be watched by vigilant city employees operating under a
body of laws with teeth—the Plumbing Code. The plumber must fully prove
his competence by examination before being licensed. He must secure a permit
before starting a job. Finally, the city inspects his installations. Thif all means
your Master Plumber must be a qualified, licensed, responsible, bonded con
tractor and engineer.
Keeping the Government screw’s tightly turned on the plumbing business is
the only way to protect the water you drink and make sure of sanitary living
conditions through a safe sewage system. Unregulated plumbing causes
sickness, death and city wide plagues.
I THE LAW IS NOT ENOUGH! Don’t throw your insur- B
ance away. Be constantly on the alert for the tinker, IB
handyman and law-evading bootleg plumber. Make | jttR
your plumber prove he it licensed and hat a permit. H

21 High Nazi Officials
Plead Innocent, Trial
Is Set at Nuernberg
By the Associated Press
NUERNEERG, Germany, Dec. 20.
-Twenty-one former German diplo
mats and officials pleaded innocent
today when arraigned before a
United States military tribunal on
charges they committed crimes
against peace' and humanity.
The court fixed January 6 as the
starting date for the trial. The de
fendants are accused in the indict
ment with a major share of the
responsibility for World War II,
with the murder of millions of Jews
and other persons in Eastern Eu
rope, with enslavement and mis
treatment of other millions of
laborers and with plundering Nazi
occupied countries.
Baron Ernst von Weizsaecker, the
chief defendant, formerly was secre
tary of state in the German Foreign
Office and was serving as German
ambassador to the Vatican at the
end of the war.
uincr Licaaing uncmiams.
Wilhelm Keppler, economic ad
viser to Addlf Hitler from 1932 on;
Ernst Wilhelm Bohle, chief of the
foreign organization of the Nazi
party; Carl Ritter, former German
ambassador to Brazil and later used
by Hitler for special ambassadorial
assignments; Hans Heinrich Lam
mers, head of the Reichschancellery.
Also, Richard Darre, former minis
ter of agriculture; Otto Dietrich,
Hitler’s personal press chief; Lutz
Schwerin von Krosigk, former
finance minister; ^Valter fechellen
berg, close associate of Heinrich
Himmler, who relayed the Himmler
peace offer just before the German
collapse, and Otto Meissner, reichs
minister without portfolio and head
of the presidential chancellery.
Meissner was ill and absent from
the courtroom.
Seeks Washington Attorney.
Von Weizsaecker asked for the
services of an American attorney,
Warren E. Magee of Washington,
D.C., in conducting his defense.
(Mr. Magee is in Zurich, Swit
zerland, having gone to Europe
to participate in the case, his
Washington office said. He is
head of the firm of Magee, Beedy
and McGovern and recently
represented former Representa
tive Andrew J. May of Ken
tucky in his conspriaey trial in
District Court.)
Pointing out that the prosecution
and the tribunal were American and
contending that the constitution and
procedure of the court invoked both
international and United States law,
Von Weizsaecker said it was essen
tial for his "proper defense and fair
trial" to be represented by both
American ana eerman counsel.
A similar plea by Alfred Krupp,
chief defendant in the war crimes
case against the Krupp armament
works, was rejected by another
American tribunal yesterday. Denial
of the Krupp motion opened the
way for a new test of the legality
of the American war crimes tri
bunals in Nuenberg before the
United States District Court In
Washington.
No immediate ruling on Von
Weizsaecker’s motion was made by
the tribunal. Members of the court
are William C. Christianson of Red
Wing, Minn.; Robert F. Maguire of
Portland, Oreg., and Leo W. Powers
of Denison, Iowa.
Ruble Cut Costs

MOSCOW, Dec. 20—Some em
ployes of the United States Embassy
were reported today to be asking for
transfers from Moscow because of
Increased cost of living resulting
from a new diplomatic exchange
rate.
When Russia revalued the ruble
this week the rate was changed
from 12 to the dollar to eight.
Butter costs $3.86 a pound; white
bread in French loaves, 48 cents
a pound; veal and beef more than

Embassy employes say their other
expenses have gone up drastically,
too, because they still must pay the
same number of rubles for rents,
wages for servants, theater tickets
and other items.
The embassy turned In its rubles
on the same basis as Soviet institu
tions and citizens and received one
new ruble for 10 old ones. Judging
from amounts being exchanged, it
was estimated total loss to the em
bassy and personnel was about
$70,000.

NEW YORK, Dec. 20.—Ten New
York cousins of Maria Formicola,
21, announced today they will send
a family delegation to Philadelphia
to support the girl’s plea lor per
mission to stay in this country.
The relatives’ offer of help was
only one of many received by the
pretty ^Italian girl, who has been
denied residence in this country
because the former serviceman she
came here to marry was killed in an
accident the day after she sailed
from Italy.
Because she “has no piesent plans
for marriage to any other ex
member of the armed forces.” a
special immigration board ruled
yesterday she must return to Italy.
Miss Formicola appealed the deci
sion.
It now goes before the Immigra
tion Commissioner at Philadelphia.
■ News of the young woman’s plight
brought offers of money, jobs and
support from across the country
A family in Fulton. N. Y., offered
her a home. So did two Cleveland
residents. A Yonkers music teacher,
an ex-OI himself, offered to marry
her after seeing her picture in the
papers, but immigration authorities
didn’t allow him to see her.
In Philadelphia, a spokesman for
the Immigration Office said the re
view of her case probably would
take a week.
One of the New York kinsmen,
Michael Cataneo, 35, said "it seems
to all of us that since Maria came
here to marry a former American
