Nazi 'Baby Snipers', 8-14, Captured After Shooting at US CreW WITH THE V. S. FIRST ARMY IN GERMANY Four German "Baby Snipers" boys from X to 14 years of age who shot at an American artillery crew near the German town of Brand will be tried by a military court-martial. First Army headquarters announced today. For the first time an American military court will try children of grammar school age on a charge which carries the death penalty. Their parents may sland in tor the guilt or innocence of these lads that will be determined. The four are Hubert, only 10 years old but tousli ringiouaei group, and three oromers n'"j. 14. Halliard. 12 and Victor, 8. All are in mililary custody, charged with firing at (he Yank artillerymen and resisting capture with a hail of fire from an American garand and a German rifle. The four are members of the Hitler youth movement and all are outstanding examples of "born and bred" Nazis - arrogant, tricky, sub-intelligent, and killers. Hubert, spokesman for I he band of young murderers, said: "We found American and German rifles lying together in a ditch. We were not shooting nt American soldiers just into Hie woods. They happened lo be there." An American M. I', guarding them grinned widely and corrected this story. "They were sniping dircclly into an artillery crew and came close lo get.illg them too," he said. "When a couple of our soldiers went up the hill lo capture or kill (he snipers, these kids kepi firing as I hey advanced. At the last minute they threw down the guns and ruu. "One soldier who spoke German called on them lo hull or he would shoot. They stopped." The Americans were amazed lo discover Ihe snipers were "lince-liigli" school children. They had believed them to be either German soldiers who had hlfillrulejll back thruugh the line's or Nazi party members. "It s going to be a long, long war if Hitler fixed up all his kids like these long and tough." the M. P. 'said, looking al the four boys with imy.Avd Crown. The nursery Nazis returned his look, a shifl inn fcluro of hule underlying their smirk. Enjoy Life f Locomotive Tab The first locoinolivc equipped with "a very crude cab" was the "Samuel D.
