Child Groom Paints I Nazis Torture Shaffer Community Fingernails Green Paratroopers, Chest Drive Slated VANCOUVER, Wash., June 14. CUR)—A 16-year-old former chauffeur and a 37-year-old widow—each with fingernails painted green "to match one another"—today were honeymooning after their marriage here. Ronald Smith was married to his erstwhile employer, Mrs. Mary Ellen Brcun, mother of two small children, by the Reverend Paul Kunzman, culminating 1 what the bridegroom, described as love that blossomed "at first sight" at their meeting jiine years ago. Smith explained that he had painted his fingernails green, like hi^ bride's, so that they would "have everything alike."

CD- Stanley Richardson, NBC reporter from London, said in a broadcast from Ixmdon last night that there is "undisputable evidence that the Germans tortured and murdered American paratroopers during the early hours of the Normandy landings. Richardson, who had just "returned from headquarters of an American airborne division near Carenlan, said in one instance tho bodies of three American enlisted paratroopers, stripped to the waist, •with their hands bound, were found in a heap beside the wall of a former German command post. "There is every indication," saifl Richardson, "that these Americans were executed after they had been captured, in violation of the rules of war." In a second case the body of a second lieutenant was found with his throat cut and a German army knife beside him. Richardson said that according to the men of the command post who discovered the body, the officer "landed in a tree and was murdered as he hung helpless there." A third case concerned a major who was found in a village "dead of multiple stab wounds," Richardson declared. . T. A. N S Williams P. T.
