OP--As World War U was drawing to an end 13 years ago Pfc, Fred Schneikert stood ,on a Bavarian road, fingering the trigger of his rifle as he talked with a young German who told a fantastic story of rockets and missiles and demanded an interview with Gen. Eisenhower. Tuesday night Schneikert. now 41 and ft meter tester for the Sheboygan Electric Co., recalled thinking ..the jolly man .in the long black leather coat "was just another nut." c * * * AS IT TURNED OUT the conversation was one of the first major steps' taken by the United States along the route into outer space. The young man was Magnus von Braun, brother of Dr. Werhner von Braun, the man who led the team of scientists that, put the ·ration's first earth satellite into space on Jan. SI. . ' . ; Schneikert said that his experience that funny day, "seems to me the only decent thing .'that happened'in the war. It made it all ·worthwhile." Unable to be sure that he was not being told just another long tale, Schneikert. took Magnus to his company headquarters .where von Braun still insisted on talking to .Eisenhower and "continued to talk of space stations and satellites. - The next step was back to the head- · -quarters of the civilian interrogation corps 'where von Braun-arranged for the surrender ·of the German.'experts-working on buzz bombs, rockets jjid missiles. . * a ' * . . . » . · " · SCHNEIKERT SAID he^ went into the hiDs the next day and was "a member o£ a group to which Werhner von Braun surrendered. Schneikert said it was · believed then that about 200 scientists'were staying In various hotels of the resorts scattered «bout the section of the Bavarian Alps. He \- said he learned later the number was closer to-400. * · " . ' Schneikert said, his part in the whole affair was "just one of .those things," but. ·he gave'these details: "I Was with an anti-tank, company of the 44th Division moving south toward ^the Brenner Pass. '-They made .me-regimental interpreter because I could speak ; the.'language. ' - · · ' . - "On this particular day', was May 2, 1945, three of us .went up ahead;of the outfit to set up a security post for the advance, into the next village. We took a., position under a bridge' along the' road. All of- us had rifles and we also had.a bazooka. * « * *. - · · "AS WE WAITED, this.fellow came..up. He seemed very nonchalant and started telling us in pretty good .English-about him being the brother of .the'dnventor of .the,..Vl and V2 "rockets and how 'his brother, and; other scientists 'were' not far away .and? wanted to "I'told hta he was nuts:" v '. v Schneikert, who learned to speak German from his" grandmother who. came '.from', that, section of Bavaria, talked w;th',Werhner; von Braun several .times;, as .he.was. interviewed after surrendering. -He" told von ; Brauir.of · having thought/Magnus "a nut - . · ' -. *' » · . ·* . ·· * ;. : .^ ' IT WAS NOT jmtii 1950 .that Schneikert heard again-of-Werhner von-Braun when-he · saw a newspaper picture and:story in-which the scientist was explaining a space .'station.
