COURIEK NKWS PAGInv« Keitel Testifies In Own Defense Puts Blame On Hitler For Orders Violating International Law • SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON "riend of Jesus FiTiuturc: Mark 10:13-14, 10; I.uke 0:13-10; 8:1-3; !5:l-i; John :\:\-Z By WAl.TKll CltONKI'lK United 1'it'ss SVjft Correspondent NUEUNHKUCi. April !i. 'DPI — Marshal Willielm Keitel told the War Crimes Court today that while lie was chief of the German High Command orders which violated international law often were submitted to him for .signature. Keitel testified In his own defense. A failed Wehrmacht uniform barren of medals, (lappet loosely around the thinning svlt- ness. Keitel pictured himself as a sor of military office boy for Adolf Hitler. He said the fuehrer "unambiguously" assumed all power of Is suiiiR army orders, and as chief o the high command he himself "nev e.r was in position lo Issue orders. The testimony developed into : hodye-podgc of ideological contra dictions in which Keitel professet responsibility for all the deeds done on orders bearing his iilguatnre yet claimed that he was little more than a rubber stamp for recording Hitler's whims. He said most of the orders lo the army were given orally liy Hitler at conferences of commanders, and his own part was to put them into writing and sifin confirmation copies. He went into an involved explanation of the exact extent of the duties, responsibilities and authority he had. He even said his generally accepted designation as "chief of the oberkommantl Wehrmaelit" was incorrect, and should have been chief of stair of the High Command of the army. Orders ^iven to him to be signed. Keitel said, "many times presented deviations from the existing international law. But many of them did not rest on military basis, but 4 the ideological point of view. I am P thinking of those issued before the campaign against Russia." Keitel sat boldly upright before Ihe microphone, his hands folded in his lap. Generally he spoke in a firm, clear voice- He tossed in the observation that of his three sons, the youngest died in Russia, the second was heard from last as a major in Russia, and the eldest was a prisoner. Although not a member of the Na/i party, he said, because of his rank he accompanied Hitler to many paity functions. StifTly he .said he did not take part in mtra-party conferences "because the Fuehrer told me lie did not wish my presence." He expressed gratitude for the IIY VVII.UAM K. GI1.KOV, I). 1). Who were the friends of Jesus? I-'Irsl of all. the children, whom le look up in His arms mid blessed. I'l'.c Disciples, with those false no- lons that many religious people lave had about the young, were Koint! to send away the women who brought their children, re- iniking them for troubling the Master, nut the Master was "much displeased." It was the nisctples who were rebuked; and the world was given that beautiful and revealing picture of Jesus surrounded by the children, with the reminder that childllkcness Is essential for those who would enter the kingdom of heaven. Then, the Disciples themselves already with Him and In Ills company—the men from fishing boats from customs houses, and from other lowlv places anil walks life, to whom Jesus said. "I hnvc not called you servants, for the servant, knoweth not what his lord doelh. but I have called friends." I The great, also—men In authority, like the .Roman centurion whose faith He commended; Niewleimts, the ruler of the Jews, who came to Him by night; Joseph of Ari- innthcn, who claimed His body and pave it burial; the wealthy who invited Him to their homes and made for Him a feast, like Simon, the Pharisee, whose hospitality He accepted, but who He lovingly rebuked. And He accepted the sinners, those publicly recognized as sinners, men and women of ill repute who earnestly longed to become • more worthy, and who were al- I ready worthier than the hypocrites Bunny Bonnet vh 0 despised and condemned them, low friendly Jesus was toward hem! His kinclne.'is brought u|>on Him the reproach of the Pharisaic, tills man receiveth sinners and •atcth with them." Hut how ItXtle the Master cared for reputation, or for worldly popularity, in surrounding tile lost and outcast with friendship and uracc! The mourners and the sorrowful, with who He wept, and upon whom He pronounced the blessing of comfort, were His friends, loo Nor should «e forget the women so many of them, lo whom He brought new hope and life, In tim c and place where women hat an inferior ixxsilion—Mary and Marlha In (he home at llelhany: the "woman who was a sinner" who washed His feel wilh her tears, and dried them with the hair of her head; Ihe "woman of Samaria" whom He met i\t Hie well, and who brought, the people from the nearby city lo meet Him. and to believe you ^ because of what they saw and heard. Tile Syrophoeniclan woman, be- Kcecliini; him u> heal her child, and more than matching Him in her reply to His nue.sllonhii!; the woman who touched the hem of His garment and found healing; [lie woman accused of having been taken in adultery whom He bade to po in peace and sin no more; the poor widow casting her mite iiJTo the temple treasury; the women, besides his mother, who followed Him all tile way to the Cross; and the women who met Him on Ihe Resurrection morning. These were the friends of Jesus, And what a Friend He was to them all!
