MONDAY, FEB. 2, 1953 German Magazine Wants Army for West Germany By DON- UOANE MUNICH. Germany I* _ A new German military mngazino has •ranched a camp a i Bn for a W6st German national army Instead or German troops In a European Its editor claims the German; could use the army | n a t ra(!e wllh Russia lo. obtain reunification of divided Germany. Wllh an nrmy of its own, he says West Germany could win Russia*' consent to pull out of Bast Germany and let it unite with We«t Germany In return for a German promise not to join military fo'-ce- with the West. • The magazine, Military-Political Forum, was founded by Ernst von Relchneau, brother of the late Nazi field marshal. Walter von Relchneau. Von Relchneau withdrew after the irmgnzine's first two Issues when German newspapers accused him of working for Moscow and charged him with helping the Americans try German war criminals in Shanghai after the war Although Von Relchermu's announcement or withdrawal Indicated he might return nfter "disposing" of these charges, the remaining staff members talk confidently of carrying on without him They claim (lie magazine.Is gaining wide circulation. ' The new editor is Anlon Wlckel- mayer, once a Hitler youth lender and officer In the Nazis' brown- shirted Stormstroopers. An Army cnptain In the war, he coils himself a military student. Wickelmayer still sports a short military haircut and clicks his heels when he shakes hands. Von Reichenau opposed Germsm ' entry into the European army, but it was Wickelmayer who developed the campaign for a national army. Favors National Army He said in an interview he favors a national army as the only hope of achieving the reunification of Germany. He claims he Is not unalterably opposed to co-operation with the West "under proper conditions," and denies any Communist connections or sympathies. His magazine, however, pulls no punches In attacking the Wcttorn Powers as Germany's mortal enemies. It refers to the European army as "Eisenhower's colonial police." It talks of German soldiers ^serv- in? under foreign masters" as "traitors." It ridicules the West German government's talk of a new "democratic" army made up of "civilians in uniform," anrf harps repeatedly on the past glor- | ies and the "honor of professional German soldiers." Von Reichenau's sudden withdrawal from the magazine deepened the mystery surrounding him. Even the men who. worked with h:ni on the magazine say they cannot vouch lor his past. 'Wickelmayer said Von Reichenau told him he was an Army lieutenant in the first world war In 1929 he le«.Germany, went first to Paris, then to Cnnton, where he engaged In the export-import business. Later he.became a military advisor to South Chinese forces. When the Americans arrived war's end he was Interned but soon released to serve us an interpreter. He denies he had anything to do with the trial of other Germans on war ciirncs charges in Shanghai. He made a stow return to Germany, arriving early In 1052. Some German newspapers oharged that Vo;i Rdclienau formed some "Eastern" cornice lions during his absence. "Von Reichenau lels the east wind Wow." one paper headlined its slo.ry asking where he got the right to speak for Germany and German soldiers.
