IUP) — By a 4-4 tie vote the Supreme Court yesterday refused to consider appeals by 74 German ww prisoners convicted of war crimes at the Dachau concentration camp. Twelve of the prisoners are under .sentence to die on Thursday. The court announced its decision immediately after an unusual closed session. It refused to grant a. writ of habeas corpus for relief from sentences by ths International war crimes tribunal at Nuernberg, Gennany. Justice Robert H. Jackson, who served as U. S. war crimes prose' j cutor took no part in the ruling. I Pour other justices held that the supreme court had no Jurisdiction irt the case. The remaining four contended that the case should be argued before the high court. Affirms Sentence* In effect the court's tie decision affirmed the sentences of the international tribunal. ,•) Willis Mr. Everett, Jr., of Atlanta, ™ former Army officer who defended the prisoners, made the appeal to the high 'court for the prisoners. In his petition he charged that the United States used "sham" courts, threat*, and third degree i method* in getting confessions from the prisoners. Everett named "President Truman, Defense Secretary James For- reslal. Army Secretary Kenneth Royall, Army Chief of Staff Omar Bradley and Attorney General Tom C. Clark in his petition. In his appeal, Everett gave his version of how the German prisoners were treated. He said the American prosecution team "would place a helmet hood completely over the head" of prisoners. "Then usually a beating would be administered after which they (the prisoners) would be forced into a completely dark cell which was their 'trial' room. "The hood was removed, and each plaintiff would see before him. a long table draped with black cloth Hagonoh Troops Show Their Colors Foreign Correspondent Says World Gets Only Haganah Version of Battles > Lemon Juice Recipe Checks Rheumatic and Arthritis Pain LONDON, May IS— <foP> — Cor- respoiidenl Arthur Williamson of the Exchange Telegraph Agency reported yesterday In u dispatch i diUellnecl "with the Arab Legion Overlooking Jerusalem," tlvjl (h» "world is receiving only a Hag- anah version of conditions inside Jerusalem."

"This theft hurts like the dickens after all I have done for people," Schultz said. Nevertheless, he said, tl^e robbery would not stop his plan to give away 42 farms valued at 11 ,'000,003 to relatives and friends. Hi e'sti- maled he already has given away almost J600.COO worth of the farms. He had not planned to give away the $124.300, which he kept in a safe in the dining room of his unpretentious home here. Most of it was in *500 and $1.000 bills, he said.
