Speer. 71, also said in an in- terview Tuesday he wants the world lo learn from an insider ho\v easy it is to become accustomed to cruelly and to look the other way. "I knew," Speer said of the Nazi extermination policy toward Europe's Jewish population, but he simply pushed the Today's Weather SNOW is expected tonight in the northern Rockies and portions of the Great Plains as well as in upper New York state.

Speer talked of Ihe second volume of his memoirs - "Spandau. The Secret Diaries" -- published last year in Germany and las! month in the United States. Spew drafted the memoirs while in Berlin's Spandau prison. Friendly guards smuggled his notes -- written on toilet paper, bils of cardboard and calendar pages -- to his family who stored them u n t i l his release in 1965. Some book reviewers complain that Speer attempts to gloss over or avoid his own responsibility, and object to Ihe favorable light in which he sometimes paints Hitler and his cohorts. "But a person like Hitler had so many conlradiciory traits that il is necessary to say thai he was like that, thai he could be sympathetic in the same way he was very cruel, even lo his closest friends, and the whole makes the picture."

The Netherlands I LTD -- Seven young Sotiih Moluccans who hold more than two dozen hostages aboard a train in the Dutch countryside for 12 days last December went on t r i a l today on charges ranging from illegal arms possession to murder. The trial before a thrce- member court in Ihis small cily B5 miles norlhoasl of Amsterdam was expected to last three days, with the court delivering its verdict Alarch 2G. Dozens of policemen ringed the court building and an armored vehicle with a machine gun covered Ihe front cnlrance. Public prosecutor Carolus van Oldcnbcek was expecled to demand that (he Erven, ranging in age from 19 to 2G, be given (he maximum sentence of life in- prisonment. This is usually commuted lo 20 years and f u r t h e r shortened for good behavior. The heavily armed youths seized the Groningen-to- Amstcrdam Iwo-car electric train Dec. 2 in a did to force the Netherlands lo i n i t i a l e a diplomatic campaign for South Moluccan independence from Indonesia. .1 former Dulcn colony. Three persons aboard Ihe train were killed -- one shot in full view of police - during (he 12 days the terror isls held the Irain in freezing paslureland outside the town of Bcilen.

Panel okays benefits bill W A S H I N G T O N ( U H I ) - Dealh benefits of $50,000 would go to dependent of slate and local policemen and firemen killed in Ihc line of duly under a hill approved Tuesday by Ihe House Judiciary Committee. Benefits would be retroactive lo Ocl. II. 1972, with (he money coming from Ihe I,aw Enforcement Assistance Administration. Voluntary firefighters and reserve police would be eligible as well as stale and local police, firemen, and officers involved in probation, juvenile delinquency and narcotics work. The House passed similar legislation in 1974 hut il was never acted on by the Senate. called instead for higher government spending, temporary jobs programs for a million persons and a voluntary price- incomes policy to reduce inflation gradually to ·! per cenl in 1977. Committee Republicans, in a m i n o r i t y report, said Ihe proposed program "requires more of the excessive spending and huge deficits which con- Iribulcd heavily to our boui with inflation and recession in Ihe first place." Chairman Hubert Humphrey, Telecasters scurry for primary result and all of those who were doing jobs for him, executing his orders, have had very human (raits. "I am saying, for instance, and shocking many people, too, t h a t Ernst Kaltenbrunner, (chief of the Gestapo, the secre! slate police), who was one of the most evil, had very good-looking warm eyes, and was sympathetic in some ways (as was) Oswald Pohl, who was in charge of the concentration camps." lie also denies shying away from his own culpability. "I stale clearly in my second book that with all the remarks Hitler marie, I knew it, I knew what was happening. "I did not know it directly by Hitler telling me or saying in my presence that there is an action to kill the Jews. But I knew hoiv Hitler was and how decided he was when he had something in his mind. So. I knew." Why did he do nothing (o stop the annihilation of Jews? "It was many things coming together. The main thing was Ihis adaptation one has when one is working so long in such a system with a man like Hitler. One gels really used lo cruelties..." KyJnanltanauer NEW YOHK (UP!) -Television coverage of presidential primaries has moved from the scenic splendor of New Hampshire and the tnish-mash of Massachusetts to the state of the oldest primary - and one that Ihis year had real meaning. Perhaps il was viewer imagination, but the network broadcasters seemed relieved to have somelhing !o say this lime around -- thai President Ford's victory over Ronald Reagan was significant, lhat Jimmy Carter's lopping of George Wallace would make a dent on Democratic polilics. All three networks were based in Orlando, Fla., which is center-slate but neither the capital nor the largest city. One network spokesman said that originally it was expected that most of the candidates would be in Orlando primary night. In fact, Jimmy Carter was around but most of the others were busy campaigning elsewhere. The viewers got a break in that the Florida polls closed at 7 p.m.. Eastern lime, and il was not an evening fraught with suspense. The first network to make a call was ABC, which picked Ford over Reagan at 7:2-1 p.m.. Eastern lime, w i t h l per cent of the state's 3,401! precincts reporting. CHS found the Democratic side easier to call, and came into the Cronkile News at 7:27 p.m., Eastern lime, willi Walter Cronkite calling Jimmy Carter the winner with aboui -11 per cenl, George Wallace second wilh about 30 per cent of the vole, and Henry Jackson third wilh approximately 18 per cent of the vote. Nexl the networks had a headache, because while the national evening news is network time, the next half hour is local access, not network. That meant ihc networks had to hit (he winners before 7:30 (Eastern lime), or forget it until 8 p.m. ABC evaded lhat snag by calling Carter the Democratic winner at 7:45 p.m.. on radio, although the network waited until the end of "Happy Days" al 8:28 p.m., lo make il official on television. NBC called the Democratic race as Carter, Wallace and Jackson, in lhat order, at 8 p.m., and at 8:08 p.m.. predicted President Ford (he winner over Reagan. A I H : 0 2 p.m. .CBS picked Ford over Reagan. Al lh[ time the network showed how discouragingly a c c u r a t e (or seal-of-the-panls analysis really professional election prediction can be. Al the lime only 27 per cent of (he vole was in, bul CDS was able lo call (he percentages very closely, giving Ford 54 per cent and Reagan 4(i. All three networks followed the 11-11:30p.m. (Eastern lime) news with special election reports. CDS and NBC both scheduled and presented half- hour programs. An ABC spokesman originally said his network would broadcast from 11:30 lo 11:45 p.m., bu( somebody changed his mind because Harry Reasoner said goodnight to us all around midnight. As a sidelight on the election coverage. CBS had scheduled a Dr. Seuss kid's special from 88:30 p.m., which conflicled with an on-the-spot Jimmy Carler interview. Instead of preempting, the network took pity on (he future voters of America by starting Dr. Seuss late and allowing its schedule lo slip some minutes behind. D-Minn. in a statement accompanying the report, said: "The administration's restrictive budget proposals would weaken --and perhaps interrupt - recovery. We are at a crossroads in economic policy. "We can move forward toward prosper!') 1 and price slahility or we can stagnate and suffer 7 lo 8 per cenl unemployment and 6 per cenl inflation until the next recession comes along." He said federal spending would be higher under the Democratic program but the increased lax revenues il wou),d gem-rale would mean the deficit would be lillle if any larger. Hiu r a n k i n g c o m m i t t e e Republican Clarence Brown of Ohio said: "The next 12 months will sec sustained economic growth wilh record numbers being added to job rolls if we are able lo follow the path to fiscal responsibility being charted hy the administration." Here arc the committee's other major recommendations: -- Continuation of current tax cuts al least through 1977 and additional tax cuts if Ihe economy appears lo be slowing down. -- No Social Security lax increase. -- The Federal Reserve Board should conduct monclary policy to avoid any substantial rise in short-term inleresl rates and' encourage reductions in longer term rates. -- Emergency jobs legistalion should provide one million additional temporary jobs. -- General revenue sharing should be extended.
