was an outspoken anti-Nazi. A bachelor, a lawyer, full of nervous energy, he was one of those arrested after the bomb plot. Vice Chancellor Franz Bluecher is one of four free democratic party men in Adenauer's coalition cabinet. He risked being thrown out of his party last February because he backed Adenauer in urging that Saarlanders vote for Europeanized status in the plebiscite to be held Oct. 23.

The other members of the ne council are, Franz Josef Strauss, minister without portfolio: Gerhard Schroeder, interior minister; Dr. Ludwig Erhard, economics minister, and Fritz Schaeffer, finance minister. All are safe men. emerald set in its forehead; fourteen lavishly furnished apartments; and a trunk containing 20-odd millions in United States and Argentine currency. From Peron's point of view, this is a pity.

Though he must have something stashed away in foreign banks for this kind of rainy day, he could have cut a wider swathe with those millions and those 600 suits. From the point of view of the people of Argentina, it is a fine thing that their ruler left these mementoes of his not entirely dedicated past. It is a fine thing, not only because the money and jewels will now become the property of the state, but because it shows up Peron as a calculating mountebank who bled the people while he pretended to bleed for them. Chancellor Konrad Adenauer certainly is doing all he can to make sure that the West German army will he kept under democratic control. In deciding to arm the federal republic, the United States and its Allies admittedly took a calculated risk.

The danger that Germany would start to build up a new war machine was less than the danger 1hat Russia might decide to start a war. But every move that Adenauer has made has been encouraging. Traditional Prussian goose-stepping and iron discipline have been Every officer of the rank of colonel and upward in the new army is being rigidly screened to keep out men of the war lord type and former supporters of Adolf Hitler. Screening By Board The screening is being done by a special appointments board, made up of military men and civilians, including members of Parliament. All appointments to senior rank must be approved by the cabinet.

In his latest move, Adenauer has set up an eight-man civilian defense council to wield supreme authority in matters of both military and civil defense, including appropriations. Adenauer himself, who has the complete trust of the is chairman of the council. His seven aides are senior cabinet ministers. All of Ihem have excellent records. Like Adenauer they are working for full European political and economic cooperation.

All have a background of anti-Nazism and anti-militarism. Some of them Were arrested on suspicion of complicity in the 1944 bomb plot which nearly ended Hitler's life. For instance, the key man on ihe defense council is Defense Minister Theodor Blank, Short, stocky, hot-tempered, given to using strong language, he is 54. Was Saar Labor Leader When Hitler got in power in 1933 he was a local labor leader in the industrial Saar. The Nazis at once frew him out.

He went to college to study engineering. He was drafted into the army in 1939 and served six years. He was promoted to first lieutenant in the field for gallantry in action. In the army, Blank grew to detest Prussian militarism. He is a firm be AUTUMN TIME The Autumn days have come again With cloudless skies of azure blu.

Defense Above Budget The Administration at Washington may be functioning smoothly as a team as various members of it have said, but the recent exchange between Secretary of Treasury Humphrey and Secretary of Defense Wilson shows that'lhere are some differences of opinion at least. It is not strange that there should be differences of opinion; the business of functioning smoothly can be overplayed. The Treasury head referred to the pos- JJST UK6 ARTHUR GODFREY i Haines Trial And Verdict Judge W. Clarence Sheely, Gettysburg, and all the officials connected with the Haines murder case and trial are to be highly commended. By some of the public, the life sentence was accepted as fitting.

Others thought that the death penalty only was sufficient for a man who apparently in cold blood shot four people, one of them the brilliant young lawyer John D. Faller Jr. Judge Sheely, too, indicated from what he told the slayer that he believed the death penalty could have been exacted, citing the fact that the Commonwealth's evidence justified execution and told Haines, "You are very However, the jury, after weighing all the evidence, ordered the murderer imprisoned for life, perhaps on the basis that no person of sound mind could have committed such a tragic act. It is certain that the jury deliberated and made the decision it believed right, and its verdict must be accepted as fair and just. Only so long as the verdicts of juries are accepted as fair and just can the jury system continue to function as the laws and courts demand.

The Haines case does bring to mind again, nevertheless, the need for revision of the laws governing sentences of slayers found guilty of premeditated or wilful murder (first degree), and whether capital punishment is, in many cases, sufficient punishment. Will Haines spend the rest of his life in prison? Could it not be that he will live long enough to gain release? More and more frequently the newspapers carry stories on releases granted by the Board of Pardons. To us, the releasing of slayers simply because they have been model prisoners and or because they have served many years of their life terms, is a miscarriage of justice. Some condemned murderers walk defiant to the electric chair and die without a qualm. That, too, might be termed a miscarriage of justice.

Death is too easy a way out. Capital punishment might be unnecessary and the murder rate might drop, if the laws were changed so that murderers would have to spend the rest of their natural lives behind bars with no chance of release.
