The correspondent was almost arrested when he drove up to the estate in a taxicab. Officers told him" to leave immediately and disregarded requests that he be allowed to see persons connected with the von Hindenburg home with whom he was acquainted. Three of the attending physicians went out for a stroll, but left instructions to keep the gate open so they .could rush back without delay at any moment. Aside from the immediate question of the president's condition is the important problem regarding succession. Political circles mention several possibilities, but the government showed that speculation distinctively is not wanted by suspending for a week the newspaper Duetsche Zeitung for the "tactless" (though distinctly pro-Hitler) comment. The first possibility was that Dr. Edwin Bumke, president of the Supreme Court would become temporary president until elections are held. However, it was pointed out by a W. G Allison, Lawrence Boswell and j Foreign Office official that "the Hitler Dr W. R Alexander Another survey will be made Thursday and will continue until the entire city has been inspected. government holds emergency powers enabling it to do almost anything." Should the Nazi dictator "do almost anything" some circles wondered if he would be content to become president and thus be more removed from the political scene, or would he rather abolish the post of chancellor and rule somewhat after the American fashion, centralizing the chancellor's powers in the presidency. 3 of 4 Fugitives Are Recaptured One of Trusty Guards Fan Loses^Temper Wounded in Defying ' "" His Captors as Team Is Beaten I CANTON, 111 — Fred Sepich, Cub pmqnw T?
