We ore glad to give you in the following, the true facts, boiled down to the essentials. stroy them, slaughter them as soon as they are no longer able to fulfill their destiny. But concerned here are human beings, our fellow creatures, our brothers and sisters. Unfortunate human beings, sick human beings unproductive human beings, for all I care. But have they thereby forfeited their right to "Have you, have 1, the right to live only so long as we are productive, so long as we are regarded as productive by others? If it is once conceded that men have the right to kill 'productive fellow creatures' and if at at first it affects only poor helpless insane persons then fundamentally the murder of all unproductive persons is given free rein, the murder of incurably sick persons and cripples unable to work, invalids of industry and Ihe war, of us all when we become old and weak with age and therewith unproductive.

"Then it is only necessary to issue a secret decree that the method tested on the insane also is to be extended to other unproductives. that this also may be used in incurable pulmonic patients, aged invalids, and soldiers seriously injured in the war! "Then none of our lives is safe any more: Some kind of commission can put you on a list of 'unproductives' who, according to their decision, have become unworthy to live. And the police won't protect you, no court will avenge the murder and mete out the justified punishment to murder! Who then can still trust his doctor!

An officially approved film, "Ich Klage An," has made the question of killing mental defectives, invalids and the incurably sick, because they are "unproductive" under the Nazi concept, one of public debate. At the same time the outspoken bishop of Muenster, Count Clemens August von Galen, has made an expose of Nazi "mercy deaths" and denounced the practice. Some months ago the Lutheran bishop, Theophil Wurm, of Wuerttemberg, also attacked "mercy death" teaching in a letter addressed to Adolf Hitler.

Bishop von Galen, who unhesitatingly speaks his mind and of late has even defied the Gestapo i secret police', warned that if the principle of "killing unproductive fellow creatures" is recognized, then even the lives of crippled war veterans and Ihe aged aren't safe. "1 have been assured that in the ministry of the interior and in tbe office of the Reich's leader of physicians (health director! Dr. Leonardo Conti, no secret is marie of the fact that a great number of insane in Germany already have been deliberately killed and in the future are to be killed." he declared as recently as Aug. 3 in a sermon at St. Lamberti's church, Muenster, Westphalia.

The film, which received widespread and extensive press notice, had its premiere in the presence of Dr. Conti. It is a story of a doctor and his young wife who is wracked by an incurable disease. Unable to find the means to check her illness, the doctor takes the life of his suffering wife with an overdose of poison upon learning she has only two months to live. Audience Decides Verdict The film deals at length with the court trial of the doctor on a charge of murder but ends without the verdict, leaving that to the audience.

The course of the evidence is an appeal made to the human side of the case and a suggestion of a change in the present German law which would, for example, permit medical commissions to decide whether a persons should legally he given a mercy death. The film undoubtedly was designed to do the necessary spade work. There is no reliable information as to how many thousands of Germans already have been given a mercy death, apparently thru painless gas. Catholic bishops, in a letter read in all churches last June in which they warned that "Christianity was at stake in Germany," also made a fleeting generalized reference to mercy killing. "There are sacred obligations of conscience," their Jetter said, "from p5 To ci'lt'hrale my 251 year in business I am making an unusually low-priced offer for high qualify workmanship MEN'S SOLES and HEELS-RUBBER or LEATHER 89c LADIES' SOLES and LEATHER or RUBBER HEELS 59c CHILDREN SOLES HEELS Rubber or Leather 49c FULL SOLES and HEELS- Leather or Rubber 1 .45 266 Given Jobs RED BANK A total of 2fi6 persons were placed in employment during September thru the local office of the New Jersey Compensation commission, Emil Gardell, manager, reported today.

Never under any circumstances may a human being, aside from war and justified self-defense, kill an innocent person." Bishop von Galen elaborated that statement in his sermon, now making the rounds of Germany in chain letter fashion. "For several months," the bishop said, "we hace heard reports that patients who have been ill for a long time and perhaps appear to be incurable have been, forcefully removed from sanatoriums and asylums for the insane by orders from Berlin. Body's Quickly Burned "Regularly then, after a short time, a relative received notice that the person had died, the body had been cremated, and the ashes could be delivered. A suspicion, bordering on certainty, exists generally that these numerous and unexpected cases of the death of the insane don't happen of themselves but are intentionally brought about, that, the teaching is being followed which maintains that one may destroy the lives of so-called 'persons unworthy to and so kill innocent persons if one thinks their lives are no longer of use to the nation and state." This was a reference to the cardinal Nazi principle that the nation is everything and the individual nothing. "Only what is of use to the nation may be a biding guide for what we do or don't do," Dr.

Conti recently said. The letter, quoting the bishop's letter, continued: "It is a frightful teaching which would justify the murder of the innocent, which fundamentally permits the violent killing of invalids no longer able to work, cripples, incurably ill and those weakened with old age. "According to reliable information, lists are now being made up in sanatoriums and asylums in the province of Westphalia of such patients who as so-called "unproductive are to be taken away and in a short time deprived of their lives. The first transport left Ihe institution at Marienthal near Muenster In the course of this week (July 31 1. "No.

211 of the Reich's penal code still has the force of the law which prescribes: 'Whoever intentionally kills a person shall, if he carried out the act with deliberation, be punished with death because of In order to protect those who premeditatively kill those poor sick persons, members of our families, from this legal punishment, the sick who are intended for death are transported from their homeland to a distant institution. "As the cause of death then, any kind of sickness is given. Because the body is immediately cremated, relatives ana also the police later can no longer establish whether the sickness really existed and what was the cause of death." Filed Fruitless Complaint The bishop then outlined how, upon learning of the Marienthal incident, he filed a complaint with the state's attorney and the police president in Muenster. His letter asked "for the protection of threatened countrymen by action against an official intending murder." The bishop said he had received no information that the police or the state's attorney had interfered. "The first transport of innocent persons condemned to death has left Marienthal," he continued, "and, according to what I hear, 800 patients already have been taken from the sanatorium at Warsten." Going into the reasons given for the "mercy deaths," the bishop said that "according to the judgment of some doctor, according to the opinion of some commission, they have become 'unworthy to because, according to these judgments, they belong to 'unproductive One judges that they no longer can produce goods, they are like an old machine which no longer runs; they are like in old horse which has become incurably lame; they are like a cow which no longer gives milk." "What does one do with such old machines?" the letter continued.

"They are scrapped. What does one do with a lame horse, with such unproductive cattle? No, I won't carry the comparison to the end "But eoncerned here re no machines or horses or cows whose only purpose is to-serve mankind, to produce goods for man.
