POLITICAL CONTROL rtOJI OT COERESrOXDEVt. NEW YORK. MAT SI. Sir. Mitchell Palmer the custodian of alien property delivered an important ' at Detroit dealing with the eventual disposal of 400.000,000 worth 01 German property in this country. He declared that thu property bad en accumulated here in pursuance of a hostile' plan of penetration. Two hundred large Ger- man corporations had been formed for the exccn- tion of a sinister German plan to control the United States economically and politically. An industrial and commercial structure had been built up by Germany in America. It reached every part of the country and nad stretched its arm across to fasten upon Porto Rico the Virgin Islands Hawaii and the Philippines When the war broke the strategic value of this structure was growing by leaps and bounds. The 200 German corporations had permeated every artery of .American industry. They were now being administered efficiently under the Alien Property Custodian Act and were' earning enormous profits. Were these profits Mr. Palmer asked to be turned over after the war to the enemy He declared that America must not permit this to be done adding t I would let Germany understand now that her plan baa dismally failed. I would divert utterly and for ever all German capital from American in dustry. CO "TROL. ct-a I. Ir. a ; port&nt troit di posal pro pu & pl'Of'tra on.
