SIMPLICITY PATTERNS I5c and 25e ontgomery Twenty-fifth and Chester Phone 7-7871 Ward "Where Parking Is Easier" Gruesome Remains of 2800 Victims of Nazis Viewed Uy MEYER TALLINN', Estonia, Oct. 4. (De- yed) (UP) —In a wooded Klen about -o miles southwest of here I've just seen the gruesome remnants of some _'8»0 men, women mid children who were shot and then burned—both liv- and dead—by the fleeing Nazis on September 19. I have seen many German atrocities in Russia. But it would take the talent of Edgar Allen Poo to picture the horrors of the little woods near the neat and peaceful village of Clooga. American and British correspondents taken to the scene by Soviet authorities agreed that it was almost impossible to conceive of human be- inffs perpetrating such crimes. Meet 85 Survivors What was shown us was the roasted remains of about L'SOO bodies and about 70 others which the (lor- mans did not have time to burn. We also met 85 survivors o£ the massacre. At one site in the Clooga camp there lay hundreds of bodies burned black as cinders. At another point stood three great pyres upon which ie Germans had burned many of the bodies. Some bodies were still frozen in convulsive horror and some handleas arms still lifted to the sky in supplication. The Clooga camp was one of 1!) in Estonia operated by the Todt labor organization and policed by the Gestapo. Most prisoners in the camps were remnants of the Jewish yhcttos in HANDLER Wono and other east European [ cities. '• AVe rode to Clooga in two buses, j traveling through rich farmlands I with fine gabled bouses of sumo or | wood. It is pleasant country and i our road lay parallel to the-coast not far from the Gulf of Finland. The Clooga camp was n group of stone buildings, surrounded by barbwire. As we approached we eaw two long rows of bodies in front of the main building. There are about 50 in all, including one infant. Ail had been killed with heavy caliber ammunition. Some must have been shot with the muzzle at their skulls because many of the heads had been shattered by the explosion. Inside the building there were more bodies sprawled near the door, evidently shot as they tried to escape. In the rooms were tiers of blinks where men and women lay In their own dried blood. Survivors told us German tommy- gunners went from room to room, shooting down the prisoners, (JOT HIS GOAT MISSOULA, Mont., Oct. 5. (&)•— The goat had butted every kid in the neighborhood, so the law was called in. The officer ftgurod the best way to catch the goat was from the rear, so he tiptoed aroun-1 the corner of the garage. But the goat had the same idea. The cop now feels sorry for himself in the same place the youngsters did Huge Floral Cross to. Adorn Aimee's Tomb T.OS ANGELES, Oct. 5.
