(De- ayed)--(JP-- Army officers estimate that fanatical nazi S. S. {elite guard) troops slaughtered without provocation at least' 100 Belgian civilians during the first few days of the recent German break- hrough. Acting mostly under direct orders from German officers to kill all civilians encountered. Hitler's lampercd troops clubbed, shot and Burned to dealh men, women and children without cause. As the American army began to contain the sudden offensive, how- :ver, trapped enemy columns were cept so busy fighting for their ives they had neither leisure nor ammunition for m u r d e r i n g civilians. . "But we know positively ot 63 Selgian civilians they killed in the Stavelot area," said Capt. Melvin H. Handvilte who investigated atrocities in this area. "We have confirmed reports of similar killings in other! sectors, he added. "Their SS troops have been more cruel here than- anywhere Dlse. We heard of many instances in other places where they shot down Belgian unarmed men for no reason, but this is the first place I have known them to kill women and children. The Germans practiced similar excesses in this area in August. 1914, when they marched across Belgium. In addition to atrocities against civilians in the Stavelot area, German troops probably massacrec more than 150 American troops This is a very conservative figure The state department has officially protested the slaughter o 135 out of 150 American xmarraec soldiers lined up in a field anc machinegunned near Malmedy. In other cases American truck drivers, trapped by fastmoving panzers, were pulled from vehicles disarmed and ruthlessly shot. Atrocities against c i v i l i a n s around Stavelot have been thoroughly documented by army of ficers through questioning of survivors and voluntary statements by captured Germans who StJoseph ASPIRIN JOO TABLETS «» - VWMOS LARGEST Seu« AT 10* Tea at its Best "SALADA" TEA In Packages and TSa Bags at Your Grocer's ake.
