No Coddling of German Chiefs Former Nazi Bigwigs Today Little Resemble Super Men of Yesterday. MONDORF, LUXEMBOURG. “We stand for no coddling. These men are in jail,” Col. B. C. Andrus, comanding officer of the battalion that guards the enclosure where the Nazi war criminals are kept, told the Associated Press. Stripped of their plumage and surrounded by barb wire and ma chine guns, Goering, Von Ribben trop, Doenitz and 49 other high ranking Nazis now bear little re semblance to super men. A tour of the decrepit Palace ho tel disclosed how one-time mighty Nazis now live. Machine Gun on Guard. Ribbentrop, who was the Nazi for eign minister, occupied a bare room on the fourth floor. When he gazes out his barred window his view is of a guard on a raised platform with mounted machine gun. He sleeps on a folding canvas cot with straw mattress. There are no mirrors and no electricity. When he shaves, a blade is issued to him and it is taken away after it has been used. All panes have been removed from the windows and replaced with unbreakable substitutes, in keeping with anti-suicide precautions. Ribbentrop has one extra suit. His room is furnished with a small chair, a toothbrush and an alumi num drinking cup. Ribbentrop makes his own bed. “He is sometimes lackadaisical in this respect,” said Capt. Hubert H. Biddle, prison officer, “and I have had him on the carpet for it several times.” Ribbentrop wore a loose fitting lumberman’s shirt, without coat or tie. His graying hair was shaggy. He was waiting with Field Marshal Gen. Albert Kesselring for a turn in the barber shop, where a pris oner of war from a German labor battalion was the barber. He stood and bowed and waited to be given “at ease” by Colonel Andrus, who waved his hand. Cut Goering’s Dope. Goering has a larger room across the hall from Ribbentrop. He has a larger chair, too. “He is so heavy he broke one chair,” Captain Biddle said. Goering, who is suffering from an attack of bronchitis, is being given a gradually reduced diet of paraco deine. When he arrived, said Colo nel Andrus, he was taking 20 times the normal dosage of the drug. Sgt. Robert Bock, Milwaukee, Wis., described Goering’s reaction to the cut in drug rations: “Yesterday he scowled. He held the pills in his hand, counted them, threw them into his mouth, washed them down with a glass of water and, still scowling, said, ‘Every day they get less and less.’ ” Goering is reported shunned by almost everybody despite his fat man bearing and his bowing and scraping. When Julius Streicher, the Nazis arch anti-Semite, arrived here Ad miral Doenitz and several other Germans refused to eat with him, saying they considered him Ger many’s worst criminal. “I told them they would eat with anybody I chose to place at their table,” Colonel Andrus said. The routine at the Palace hotel is almost identical with that of peni tentiaries in the United States, with the exception that the only movies are atrocity films and the only amusements walking in the sunlight and conversation. New Rochelle Corrects Old Wrong to Tom Paine NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y.-Thomas Paine, Engligh-bom writer and arch-patriot of the American Revo lution, has been restored to the U. S. citizenship which this community denied him 139 years ago. Before Paine's state, Mayor Stan ley W. Church in a July 4th cere mony proclaimed that New Ro chelle'S action in forbidding the author of “Common Shnae” and “The Crisis” to vote in a local elec tion was “a grave injustice.” He was not permitted to vote on the grounds that he was not a citi zen. Paine became unpopular after the Revolution because of his forth right political and religious views. Congress granted him a farm in New Rochelle where he retired, but attempts were made on his life and the children of New Rochelle pelted him with mud. The crowning indignity came when Paine automatically a citi zen because he had fought in the war—was turned away from the polling place. He died here in 1809, shunned and hated. British Shipyards Get Leave to Resume Work LONDON.—The Daily Mail said that the principal British shipyards have received government permis sion to resume building ships for pri vate owners and that they have enough orders on hand to keep them busy for years. The biggest con tract, which will be placed within a few weeks, calls for a 35,000-ton sis ter ship to the Mauretania for the Cunard White Star line. Pillaged Wealth Of Nazis Piled Up No Accurate Estimate Can Be Made of Total Value. FRANKFURT, GERMANY.—The pillaged wealth of Nazi-occupied Europe, taken from the teeth of murdered Jews and the coffers of seized governments alike, was piled high today in the Reichsmark Bank of Frankfurt. In addition to gold and silver there were hogsheads of pearls, rubles and sapphires. Wooden cases held gold and silver fillings from the teeth of concentration camp victims. Currency experts from the United States treasury and the bank of England were identifying and mak ing an inventory of the Nazi loot. “An accurate estimate of the total value can never be made,’ said Col. Bernard Bernstein, director of the Finance Division of the U. S. Group Control Council. He said the collection included 53 separate deposits hidden by the Nazis and unearthed by U. S. troops during the final days of the war. These included the gold bullion dis covered by the U. S. Third army in the Merkers salt mines and special hidden hoards of Heinrich Himm ler’s SS organization which were buried under chicken coops on a German farm. In one cache thousands of wedding rings stripped from the fingers of women victims of the Nazis in Ger many, Greece, Poland and other oc cupied countries were strung on ropes like country sausages. “We have found barrels of silver and gold wrist watches, cigarette cases, wedding rings, bracelets and jewelry of every description,” Colo nel Bernstein added. “This was taken from Nazi concentration camp victims.” The bullion was stacked like cord wood and one large room held noth ing but securities from almost every country in the world. The loot in cludes millions of Russian rubles and $34,000,000 in U. S. gold coins. Government Gives Some Ways to Help Win War WASHINGTON.—A message from the Office of War Information: The government needs and asks its citizens in this one hundred eighty-seventh week of the war against Japan to: 1. Equip your home now with storm sash, weather stripping and insulation, that will keep you warm with less fuel next winter. If you delay until fall, you may have to wait for labor or materials for weeks. 2. Can all surplus vegetables from your victory garden. Remember vegetables are essential for a bal anced diet and you will need them next winter. 3. Use your training to help for mer servicemen who are recover ing in veterans’ administrations hos pitals if you are a registered grad uate nurse. New professional serv ice classifications mean higher sal aries. Write to medical director, veterans’ administration, Washing ton. 4. Plan to spend your vacation helping short handed farmers get maximum food production. Farm population is now at a 35 year low, and every ounce of food is needed. See your county agent or farm em ployment office. 5. Return to work on the railroads if you are an experienced railroad worker. Your help is needed to move troops and supplies to the West coast. Apply at your local United States Employment service office. New Paternity Champion Of Navy Has 15 Children LOS ANGELES.—This is to in form Seaman Roman L.

The clan ranges from Dolores, 25, down to Jimmy, 4. Three of the boys followed their father into the navy and are serving overseas. Two of the girls are married. Cafe in Paris Closed Over $2 Strawberry PARlS.—Strawberries were served at $2 each and crayfish at S6O each in one of 17 Paris black market res taurants closed on police orders. The restaurant that sold the strawberries was the Perroquet aux Champs at the skating rink in the Champs Elysees. A fine lunch could be obtained there for S6O to SIBO. Frozen to Death in Plant Refrigerator STAMFORD, CONN.-Saul H. Perry, 50, froze to death when he became trapped in a compart ment of a refrigerator at his ice cream plant. The medical examiner said there was evidence of desperate efforts on Perry’s part to escape from the compartment where the temperature was 40 below. I" ■ Released by Western Newspaper Union. By VIRGINIA VALE. JIMMY CARROLL, young tenor who headlines his own CBS show, “Jimmy Carroll Sings,” proves that the place to find good voices is in radio’s vocal groups. For five years Jimmy sang in the Ben Yost, Ray Block and Lyn Murray choirs; before that he’d been buy ing women’s wear for a big chain of department stores, and singing for fun. Last fall, when James Mel ton was taken ill, Jimmy substi tuted, with only a half hour’s re hearsal. That brought him to the at life k.* ’ff; ** JIMMY CARROLL tention of his present sponsors—and his radio program has led to his be ing pursued by the producers of two musical shows.

Ginny Simms isn’t too busy with her new picture—it’s “Shady Lady,” with Charles Coburn and Robert Paige to think about her new radio show. It’ll be a half-hour show, taking over the Jerry Wayne spot. She’ll continue giving a break to ex-servicemen who were profes sional entertainers before the war, but with only one on each program, and will also have guest comedians. —* — Betty Hutton collected about 40 different perfumes to take with her on that next overseas trip.
