PAGE FOURTEEN HLYTHIOVILLK (AUK.) COUKIHR NKWS THURSDAY, AUGUST £8, 1047 FarbeaOificials' War Trial Starts 24 Cartel Executives „ Charged With Making World War II Possible BY JO THOMPSON (United Frrss Staff Correspondent) NUREMBERG, Au«. 23. (UP)—The United Stales opened the war crimes trial of 24 I. G. Faiben officials yesterday with a charge that they we're the master builders of Adolf Hitler's army and \vere largely responsible for the Second World War. "These are the men who made the war possible, and they did it because they warned to conquer," Brls. Gen. Telfcrd Taylor, chief prosecutor, told tlie American tribunal hearing the trial. ' The executive, of the vast FAv combine went en trial in the courtroom where Hermann Gcering and the other Nazi government leaders were convicted. It was tiie first major test of war criminality in the field of industry. They were indicted last May 3 oil charges of planning, preparation, initiation and waging of wars of aggression and invasions of other countries; rcbbcry and sl>o:;ation; slavery and mass murder; membership in the criminal SS police organization; and conspiracy to commit crimes against peace. Taylor, in opening the case,'branded the topdogs of the worldwide industrial cartel as "magicians who made the fantasies ol Mehi Kamv>£ come (rue." "They were the guardians of the state secrets of the Third Reich." he toki the court. "They were the master builders of the Wehrmacht. They knew every detail of the intricate' and enormous engine of warfare! and watched its growth with the pride of architects. Called Industrial I'lumlercrs "They knew thai the engine was going to be used, and they planned to use it themselves. Europe is dot- led with the mines and factories which they coveted, and for each step in the march of conquest there was a program of industrial plunder which was put into prompt and ruthless execution.'' Their contributions toward the creation and sparking of the Wehr- macht stemmed from bottomless vanity and insatiable ambition which spurred them on to aggression, Taylor charged. fHc said the trial was no act o! vengeance but an "inescapable am solemn duty to test the conduct o: these men by the ;;amc laws aiK commandments which they dare< disapow. "The crimps with which these inn are" charged wore not committed ii u rage or under the stress or sud den temptation. They were not slip or lapses of otherwise wcll-orderei men. "One does not build a stupendou war machine in a fit of passion no an Auschwitz factory during a pass ing spasm of brulality." The reference was to the Ails;]! wltz concentration camp, ivhcr Farhen had a branch factory, synthetic rubber plant where th slave labar was subjected to atroci tics which caused a turnover o! 30 per cent in a year. Taylor traced the history of Par ben from a modest start as a dj works to a global combine. He sai the first major step of the officia was to help put Hitler in powe They then made big contributioi to the Nazis, he said, began build ing stockpiles of synthetic and gasoline, and training the factory hands -in defense against gas attacks and air raids. Converted to Espionage 'After the 1936 Nurenbcrg rally of the Nszis, at which Hitler announced P- four-year plan to make Germany self sufficient, in critical war materials, Taylor suid, the Farbcn outposts abroad were converted more and more to espionage and Lovely Sight, Isn't It? .„ -m; m "' Eleanor Says James Farley Wronged FDR KAW YORK.
