So, here it is, YOUR FRIENDLY DEPARTMENT STORE And as for a year ago. when the snow stacked, up 25.8 inches before the' weather bureau could say "th- th-lhclhermomcler" — Well That is an epic adventure. The long voyage home took some 'oole more than 20 hours. Admir Peary in his dash to thc North Pole — why. he had it easy. In darkest Brooklyn they were trying to buy snowshoes. In the Bronx (hey were using skis. In the long history of man no race ever faced and won through such a weather ordeal — or so the sons of the sub- wav like to think. Yes that was a real four-star hit snow show. But yesterday Squire Rockefcl ler had his ice noncl already swept clear. Everybody came to work, because thc darned transportation systems worked. The streets are just a lot, of slush and noise. And so is (hc storm. What caused il? Well. Ihe taxi drivers, who know everything in Now York, say: ''It's the atom bomb. Tt changed ll.'o weather all around the world." 1 In any case, America, accept Gotham's apologies. We ad:Tiit it was a lousy storm. Rut watch us next year we'll be back with a new one under better management, j It'll be the biggest, deepest, long- jest, hardest, finest, wettest, coldest snowfall that ever fell. Plans are already under way to use the Empire Stale building for a measuring stick. But as for thc big snow of '48 — let's forget it. Every producer comes up with a turkey sometime, and this one is ours. By TOM REEDY AP Newsfoatures Berlin —For almost a half century, Dr. Hjalmar Schaeht couldn't stay out of banks. Now he can't stay out of courts. The high-collared bellicose banker is in a fail- way to becoming the most-tried man in history. The Stuttgart de- Naziiication Ministry says it will try him again as a major Nazi "offender." He was Hitler's minister of economics and president oi the Reichsbank. He was convicted once and sentenced to eight years. A Gorman appeal court set that aside. The ministry of de- iialluii appealed from the appeal and has the power under are deNax.ifieation law to keep trying a man as long as it doesn't '•:'-' the decision. Theo. Kail chief of the American dcKa;;ilie:i!ion branch for military government ,says the U. S. official position is thai it is playing hands off in the Schaeht affair. Nevertheless. Charles M. La- I-ollr-tte, U.S. military governor at Stuttgart, hailed the German ministry's decision to retry the banker as a good tiling. lie said it showed a Gi'rjnan c)et.>rrniirition "to stamp out" Nazi taint. Schaehl is out of jail for the first time since 15)44. The banker, now in his seventies, slill possesses the mental and physical vigor that carried him to the top of the financial world of Eurooe many years ago. He is the man who jjiillecl Germany out of lior unuLlievable I'muncial chaos in the oujiy I:):'.')'/; and Hitler's logical choice for his cabinet in 1933. Schaeht .sny.s he slopped playing Hitler's game in 15)38. H 'is true he shut OH' more funds for armaments then. Soon he was out as president of the Reichsbank. Waller Funk took il over and now is serving life as a war criminal.
