Hess Trial.Opens Today After Goer/Tig's Attorney Rests Case NUERNBERG, Mar. 22. (U.l>.)_Rudolf Hess opened his defense case before the war crimes tribunal today with a statement in which lie expressly assumed responsibility ior "all laws and decrees which he signed as Hie fuehrer's deputy and Reich Minister." The Hess case was called after Reidimarshal Hermann God-ing's lawyer rested his defense. Gum-ing's defense came to a straggling, unsensational close after eight days when his efforts to make a valedictory .speech were blocked Alfred Scidel, Hess' counsel, opened the defense of the Nazi Party deputy who flew to Scotland in 19<tl tassia Prepared or Future War, Clerk Testifies Soviet Secret Police Operate 'Everywhere/ Gouzenko Declares He rend an affidavit from Hilde- » grade Fatli. former secretary to Hess. It said a letter Hess loft behind for Adolf Hitler when he flow to Britain principally concerned peace proposals. "There was no word about Business Firms Will Decide On Summer Closing All local businesses arc asked to have representatives present at the meeting tonight when it will be decided whether local firms will give their employes one-half day holidays each week this Summer by closing their business. Tlie chamber of Commerce is acting as "sponsor" of the meeting, at the request of numerous merchants. Tlie meeting has been set for 7:30 o'clock at the Municipal Court Room. City Hall. the Soviet Union, or that a peace treaty was to be concluded with England in order to be free for another front." th e affidavit said, "In my opinion Hess made this cxtrndordinnry flight in order lo prevent further bloodshed and prepare the prerequisite for peace." During his teslimony. Goering denied lhat h c believed in thc masler race theory, even if Adolf Hitler did preach It. The No. 2 Nazi said he believed only that "there is an underlined difference between races." The former ended his cross-examination by clashing with th e Soviet prosecutor Gen. Roman Rudenko. Hc tried to make some more speeches when defense attorney Otto Stahmer resumed direct examination, but .was cut short. Apparently disgruntled because he could not make a grand finale speech, he sat down, still clutching his purple notebook. Rudenko and Goerlng shouted at each other during an exchange about the extent of Goering's knowledge of and responsibility for the deaths of millions of innocent people. Rudenko insisted that Goering must have been aware of them. Leaning forward until his face was almost against the microphone, Goering said. "No. I did not know about them or cause them." Rudenko pourMlcd the lectern and shouted. "You had to know about these facts." "Why did I have to know?" Goering boomed back. "Either I know them or I don't know them. You can only say I -was negligent in not linding out." Rudenko relorted, "You ought to know belter. Millions of Germans knew about them and you did not." Goering shouted in reply, "Millions of Germans did not • know about them. That is not an established fact." Rudenko hammered at Goering •with ci;i»;tions as lo whether hc agreed 'with Hitler's policy on thc Jewish question, on war with Russia, on the master race theory or on shooling British airmen. Goering said that although hc disagreed wllh the fuehrer, h c had to follow th c decision once it was made. Staring straight at Rudenko. he added. "Just as is the case elsewhere. French prosecutors declined to cross-exr/.ine Goering. They said lie was "merely mouthing prop- way to weaken thc prosecution's ao 35 Indicted For Columbia Riots Four White Men Among Defendants Accused In Racial Trouble MONTREAL, Mar. 22.
