They were accompanied to Mem Ms by Miss Alice Marie Ross Mrs. Lillian Franks and Miss Mir lie Foster. Rudenko then submitted to th war criir/-, tribunal the origin* of the Cnnaris report, on whicl Keitel had written a marginal note This note to Carmris said. "Thcs suggestions are according to you soldier's view of the conception at conducting n war as a knight, but do not fit in with the new idea of this new war. Therefore I approve such measures and I stand behind them." Keitel admitted that he had written It, "Then," said Ruflenko. "you who ere called field marshal, who call- himself n soldier, you by your wn bloody resolution In 1941. you pproved and sanctioned ttie mur- er of defenseless unarmed sol- iers taken by you as prisoners." Keitel answere, "I signed those ecrees and I assume the respon- ibilfty." "Is it in accordance with the reed of a soldier to issue sucJ: rders on prisoners of war and he civilian population?" Keitel shouted. "Yes. as far as eprisals' are concerned, during Au- rust arid September when we hearc what happened to German soldiers n battle, when -we found hundreds of them lying in heaps murdered.' Here Rudenko hastily interrupted, "enough of this, defendant Keitel. You may talk about murdered German prisoners of war, but you and I know, and you have admitted, that before the war—In May. 1941—you signed a directive concerning the shooting of Soviet prisoners." "Yes, I signed it- before the war." Kcftci said, 'b'ut also it didn't contain the word murder." N. Y. Cotton NEW YORK, April 6.

"The United Nations hnve n rlgh o Inslsl that the sovereignty nnd ntegrlty of the countries ot Un Vcar nnd Middle Enst must not be hreatcncd by coercion or penctra Ion."

"The people of the Near and Middle Enst want to develop their resources, widen their educational op- wrtunities. and raiso their standards of living." he said. "The United States will do Us part in helping bring this about." In his discussion of Ihc Far East. Mr. Truman forthrighlly stated whnl this country expects from other interested nn lions. We recognize thai the Soviet Union, the British commonwealth and other nations have Important Interests in the Far Enst,".he said. "In return we expect recognition by them that, we also have nn interest in maintaining pence and so- ciirity in that area. 'We expect understanding dh their part thnt our objectives are dedicated to the pursuit of peace; and we shall expect them to pursue the same objectives." Most Remain Strong Mr. Truman prefaced his discussion of unification, draft extension nnd universal training with this statement: "The United States today Is strong nation; there is none stronger. "We ar* determined to, remain Universal training— It Is "not onscrlplion" but training. "It does not mean that our •oung men would have to serve in he Army or Navy for any period luring peacetime," he said. "What s proposed is that each individual be trained and fitted by his nation o take his place If war unhappily should ever come again.'* In reviewing American foreign idlcy the President stuck to . the 'iindamentals ho announced lasl Navy Day In New York. Hc said American foreign policy wns "based 'squarely upon the pursuit of peace and justice; and it definitely rejects any; selfish nd- vances for ourselves." "The Immediate objective of our foreign policy 13 to support the United Nations to the utmost,' 1 ho declared. H« expressed confidence that the UN Security Council was "Xully capable" of settling international disagreements. He reiterated the good neighbor policy In this hemisphere to an around-the-world review of current clndillons. "The United States," he said, "intends to Join with the other sovereign republics of America in a regional pact to provide a common defense against, attack." He did not, however, say whether this regional pact would include Argentina! The President spoke only briefly about atomic energy nnd the problems It poses. He said it wns this nation's desire to see that the new- atomic power is harnessed to serve and not destroy mankind. N. Y.
