Butter to Russia
Four hundred thousand UAW
CIO members in the Detroit area
want people receiving lend-lease
to eat “just half as much maca
roni and lima beans’* as the
unionists now are.
At least that is the contention
of officers of 100 locals in the
Detroit area who yesterday unani
mously adopted a resolution call
ing for reduction of red points on
meat, butter and lard.
W’llliam Hill, who introduced
the resolution, said:
“We've eaten m> murh maca
roni and lima beans at our
house that we are dreaming
about them. Now, let some of
the lend-lease people eat half
of the macaroni and beans that
we have been eating and give us
half of their meat."
The resolution will be sent to
the OPA and Jend-lease officials.
Detroit's meat supply fares a
further cut. ftee story on Page t.
—The OPA announced toda> that
sugar allocations for most indus
trial users in the next three
months would be cut 37*4 per
cent below the average 1944 level.
The reduction reflects a decline
in world sugar production which
necessitated a 10.000-ton decrease
in civilian allotments for the third
quarter of OPA said it was
designed to compensate for
similar cuts for institutional and
household* users, including home
Under today’s action, com
mercial canners, bakeries, soft
Unnk producers and other indus
trial users will receive an average
of alniut 20 p»*r cent less sugar
in the July - August • September
period than in the second quarter.
Supplies for ice cream makers
will drop .10 per cent, and

Trial Sent
To Jurors
A recorder's court Jury late this
afternoon began deliberation* in
the ( amltle J. Deweerdt murder
The case of Camille J. Deweerdt,
on trial for murder, was to go to
a jury in Recorder’s Judge Paul E.
Krause's court this afternoon.
Attorneys capped nine day* of
testimony with an impassioned de
bate over the “unwritten law’’
»hat moved the wife of the con
fessed killer and their young
daughter to tears and drew audi
ble sobs from spectators who
packed the courtroom.
Max Silverman shouted that
Henry Courreur, the slain man,
sealed his own death sentence nine
years ago “when he coveted the
defendant’s wife." He pleaded with
the jury “not to compromise" in
preparing its verdict and de
manded that the jurors find his
client not guilty.
Asst. Prosecutor William P.
Long replied that the unwritten
law was being offered as an
‘excuse" for murder, and urged
the Jury not to permit sympathy
to sway its reasoning
"There la no unwritten law,"
he declared.
Judge Krause was to deliver his
charge to the jury after the final
arguments and a recess for lunch
eon. His charge was expected to
consume an hour.
Big 3 Meeting
Set for Berlin
LONDON, June 15 (UP)—The
forthcoming conference of the Big
Three will be held in Berlin, an
exchange of correspondence be
tween Prime Minister Churchill
and labor leader Clement R.
Attlee revealed today.
Churchill asked Attlee, his for
mer deputy prime minister in the
coalition government, to go with
him to the meeting with Presi
dent Truman and Marshal Stalin.
In a letter of acceptance, Attlee
disclosed the site of the meeting
with a reference to the "prospec
tive conference in Berlin."
Only yesterday Churchill re
vealed In Commons that the Big
Three conference—the first since
the defeat of Germany and the
first with Mr. Truman as a par
ticipant—would be held before
July 26.
Despite the bitterness of the
campaigning for tbe general -elec
tion. it appeared that Britain
would be able to offer a united
front at the conference.
“I do not anticipate,** Attlee
said in accepting Churchill's in
vitation. “that we shall differ
on the main lines of the policy
which we have discussed to
gether »o often."

Poison Vial
—Supreme Allied Headquarters
announced today that former Ger
man Foreign Minister Joachim
von Rihbentrop has hern flown to
Frankfort for questioning.
GROUP HQ. t Germany, June
15 (INS)—The capture of
former German Foreign Min
ister Joachim von Kibben
trop, found naked with a tin
of poison strapped to his
body, was announced today
by headquarters of British
Field Marshal Montgomery.
Ribbentrop, with the exception
of Adolf Hitler the last of the
Nazi high command to remain un
accounted for, was taken into cus
tody at Hamburg yesterday.
(At Allied supreme headquar
ters in Paris, Gen. Eisenhower
told newsmen that the Soviet
"high command had grave
doubt v that Hitler is dead,
although he himself had accepted
earlier accounts of Hitlers de
mise as a matter of fact.)
The 52-year-old Ribbentrop a
former ambassador to Great Brit
ain and partner with Hitler in the
ruthless flouting of international
agreements, was found in bed
without any clothing at Hamburg.
The prize catch was,made by
British Lt. J. Adam of Paisley,
A tin of poison which he was
either unable or unwilling to use
in the manner that gestapo chief
Himmler took his own life, was
attached to Ribbentrop's body.
So cleverly was it concealed,
however, that the lethal potion
was not discovered immediately.
When found by Lt. Adam. Rib
bentrop was told to dress. He was
taken to the Allied military office
in Hamburg and subjected to an
immediate medical examination.
In the course of the examina
tion. Ribbentrop himself produced
the hidden tin pf poison.
After he had been brought to
headquarters, Ribbentrop’s iden
tity was confirmed by a sister, pre
viously taken Into custody, and a
wine merchant with whom the
Nazi foreign minister had sought
The sister threw her arms
around Ribbentrop’s neck and
burst into tears. Ribbentrop him-.
self then broke down and cried.
Ribbentrop was revealed to have
arrived In Hamburg on April 20.
after having been refused a place
of hiding by the wine merchant,
whom he had known for 25 years.
In his attempt to escape appre
hension by the Allie*, Ribbentrop
took up lodging In a private apart
ment house under the name of
Ribbentrop told British intelli
gence officers that he “wanted to
stay in Hamburg until British
opinion had quieted down.” Then,
he added, he intended to give him
self up to “get a fair trial.”
Headquarters disclosed that
when Lt Adam, accompanied by
two sergeants of field security
police, arrested Ribbentrop he
immediately admitted his identity.
