LOWE Inquirer Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, May 25. Over bitterest defense opposition, the Government today introduced its first exhibit in the marathon sedition trial a copy of a letter from Heinz Spanknoebel in Germany in 1933, announcing that the Nazis would only recognize the Friends of New Germany predecessor of the German-American Bund as its official body in this country. As the day closed, the Government was battling opposition to the introduction of another 1933 letter from Spanknoebel, contents of which were not disclosed. A BRIEF SENSATION Peter Glssibl, former Chicago head of the Bund, was on the stand for part of the day, identifying the two letters and declaring he knew hSpanknoebel's signature well, hav ing seen it many times. William J. Powers, attorney for William Dudley Pelley. caused a brief sensation in the afternoon when he declared that the signature of Spanknoebel on the second letter was a forgery and quite different from the one on the first letter. Joseph W. Burns, Government t counsel, quickly poured cold water on the excitement by declaring that there was no Spanknoebel signature on the first letter. He said it was signed by Hans Straus, former deputy leader of the Friends of New Germany, and merely quoted the Spanknoebel letter for the information of the Chicago unit of the organization. TWO DEFENDANTS DISAGREE Witness Glssibl also testified that Herman "Max Schwinn, one of the 29 defendants in the case, had at tended a convention of the Friends j of New Germany in Chicago in July, i 1933. James J. Laughlin, attorney for Defendants Edward J. Smythe and ! Robert Noble, told the court there J was friction between his two cli-; ents and asked to be relieved of one j or both of them. The court took I the matter under advisement, and ' counsel for the Government an-1 nounced it would oppose any such severance at this stage of the case, j Another defendant, Franz K. j Ferenz, also sought to discharge hi3 : court-appointed lawyer, but this re- j quest was rejected by Chief Justice ! Edward C. Eicher, the trial judge. I 4 Nuns Perish in Fire PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, May 25 (A. P.).
