For some reason—in the belief of some diplomats because of a colossal oversight—Germany made no demands on France's'Great empire in the armistice agreement.

Vcb. 5. iUP)~ The unprecedented trial of thf American Medical Association and , c ome of the nation's most noted doctors on charges that they conspired to violate federal antitrust laws opens today in U. S. District Court. Justice James M. Proctor will preside over proceedings which are expected to consume a month or more. Government attorneys will try to prove that the AMA, two of its affiliated organizations and 20 officers sought to use the AMA's prestige to defeat a venture In cooperative medicine. The indictment also names the Dr. Herman F. Erben. above, medical officer of the scuttled German raider Graf Spee's supply ship, faced deportation when a San Francisco judge recently revoked his American citizenship, upholding charges that Dr. Erben "knosvingly made false statements" on his citizenship papers, Columbia, the Harris County (Tex.) medical society and the Washington Academy of Surgery. AMA officials named were Morris Fishbein, editor of the AMA Journal; Olin West, secretary and general manager of the "AMA; William Creighton Woodward, director of the AMA bureau of legal medicine;and legislation; William Dick Cutter, secretary of the AMA council on medical education" and hospitals and Rosco Genung Le- 'and, director of ihe .AMA bureau •>f medical economics. The first day of the trial will be taken up with the selection of i 12-man jury and two alternates. John Henry Lewin, chief government prosecutor, and Grant W. Kelleher, then will present their opening statements, to which defense counsel will reply. The defense statement probably will be made by Edward N. Burke, Chicago, AMA attorney.
