Youths in their teens, taken from Jewish schools training them for handicrafts or farm work in Palestine. were believed to have been shipped in trucks to work on the new fortifications along Germany's Western borders. Press Assails U. S. An editorial of an important Nazi newspaper angrily assailed what it called the of the American Government to American Jewry." The editorial was directed specifically against the United States Secretary of the Interior, Harold L.

Ickes, and the summons to Ambassador Hugh R. Wilson to return to the United States. It was published in the National Zeitung of Essen, the newspaper of Field Marshal Goering who is second only to Chancellor Hitler in the Nazi regime. The article apparently was written before President Roosevelt's statement in Washington yesterday that he personally had summoned Mr. Wilson to return for consultations on the Jewish situation.

The displeasure of Gen. Goering, Prussian premier and dictator over exchange and raw materials, became known yesterday. He was said to consider last anti-Semitic destruction a severe blow to the progress of the Nazi four-year economic plan which he directs.

Buerckel said: "German Jews participated freely as profit makers in the productive process. They did mot produce, but traded with profits. The values were created by German workers.

British Cabinet today sought means of aiding German Jews and awaited Nazi reaction to a mass migration plan 1 attributed to United States Ambassador Joseph P.

Kennedy. The proposal to move the German Jews to North and South America and to parts of the British Empire was brought before the cabinet at its regular Wednesday meeting. Consultations are under way among Great Britain, the United States, France. Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark and Switzerland on the problem growing out of the recent wave of anti-Semitic measures in Germany. Committee Call Considered.

Official sources said the British government was considering calling a meeting of the intergovernmental committee on refugees set up at Evian-les-Bains. France, last July. The purpose of the session would be to study what can be done for Jews in Germany. Britain also is considering the status of a contemplated visit to Berlin by George Rublee of the United States, head of the committee. who wants to discuss with Nazi representatives some means of starting the orderly emigration of refugees.

It was said the British government may bring further pressure on Berlin to receive Mr. Rublee It was stated authoritatively that diplomatic representatives of the 31 powers represented at Evian-lesBains had made separate representations to the Berlin foreign office about two weeks ago requesting that Mr. Rublee be received. No answer has been made by Berlin, however, beyond the statement that the request would be considered. Mr.

Rublee is now in London, ready to go to Berlin. Au international conference may be called, as suggested bv Premier Hendrikus Colijn of the Netherlands yesterday. One of the biggest problems was the attitude of Adolf Hitler toward efforts of other powers to relieve the Jews. Germany, now smarting under foreign denunciation of the anti-Jewish disorders, may be inclined to snub advances to her on the question. President Roosevelt's strong condemnation of Germany's treatment of Jews was played by British newspapers as the biggest story of the day, while various groups in Britain continued to protest against the Nazi anti-Semitic wave.

Boycott Demanded. Five thousand Jews meeting in the Whitechapel section of London's East End demanded a boycott of German goods. The Labor party took the first step to open debate in the House of Commons on the Jewish situation. A motion sponsored by Clement R. Attlee, opposition would have the House note "with profound concern the deplorable treatment Page A-4.) Diegel, Injured Golfer, Sues for $20,000 By the Associated Press.

Fogg struck him last August while he was playing in the Cleveland open tournament. Papers Overplayed Jewish Angle, Says Early By the Associated Press. The White House said today I President Roosevelt's v'ondemnation of measures taken German minorities applied to Catholic ele; ments as well as Jewish, Stephen Early, press secretary, told reporters the morning newspapers, in referring to the President's formal statement yesterday, denouncing the Nazi attacks, had the Jewish angle and neglected to point out that Catholics also were "The Mr.j Early said, "was treated by the as a rather unusual and firm statement as to Jews only, but it refers to the Catholic situation, He added the statement was intended to take in the stoning of Cardinal home in Vienna and measures against Catholics elsewhere who, he said, had been mistreated. Many Calls Received. Mr.

Early said the White House had received many telegrams and telephone calls approving the President's statement in which he said he "could scarcely believe that such things could occur in a 20th century civilization." Any general pretest from the United States against mistreatment of German Jews probably will await Ambassador Hugh Wilson's conference with President Roosevelt, according to officials. Expression of this belief followed the President's disclosure that he personally gave the order for the American envoy to return from Berlin at once to report on anti-Semitic violence. news of the past few days from Germany has deeply shocked public opinion in the United States," Mr. Roosevelt said. news from any part of the world would inevitably produce a profound reaction among American people in every part of the Nation.

His voice was serious and his manner solemn. Government officials regarded his remarks as highly important, inas- much as the head of a Nation rarely comments on internal developments in another country. Mr.

Roosevelt indicated he would receive from Ambassador Wilson, after his arrival late next week, "a first-hand picture of the situation in This led officials to predict the two men would talk over, i not only the Jewish problem, but also such points as: 1. Germany's ignoring of repeated American note-, asking her to assume Austria's debts to this country. 2. Germany's economic campaign in Central Europe, which may impair American trade in that region and which already is interfering with the conclusion of a trade agreement between the United States and i Turkey. 3.

Germany's ambitions, economic and political, in Latin America. Common Defense Urged. Many who heard the President yesterday linked that third point with his remarks on a common defense of the Western Hemisphere by the 21 American republics and Canada against any aggression from abroad. Mr. Roosevelt declared that as one means of insuring protection he and his aides are discussing an increased air force.

He indicated clearly he favored making it strong enough at least to help defend the entire Western Hemisphere as well as the United States against any aggression from the outside.

Government leaders of Great Britain. France and the Union of South holders of war-lost African separate notice today that they had no intention of returning territories under their administration to the Reich.

Statements of Colonial and Dominions Secretary Malcolm MacDonald, Premier Edouard Daladier of France and Gen. Jan Christiaan Smuts of the Union of South Africa thus served to emphasize the possibility that any plan for colonial appeasement of Germany might have to be based on: 'The acquisition of African territory from Portugal and Belgium for a transfer to replace Germany own former colonies. The formation of an international colonial pool with Germany as a member to give the Reich free access to former possessions. Tanganyika Informed. Mr MacDonald said in the House of Commons that his government authorized the announcement it not contemplate the transfer of any territory under British administration." The authorization he said was telegraphed to the governor of Tanganyika territory in East Africa, held by Britain under a League of Nations mandate.

Gen. Smuts. South African World War commander, asserted his country would fight if necessary to retain Southwest Africa. Premier Daladier declared France would cede no colonies and would protect French colonial integrity. In a press statement he said cession of colonial territory had never been considered.

In response to charges in the House of Commons that Nazi subsidization of German planters in Tanganyika had created a state within another state," Mr. MacDonald said he was asking the governor to "furnish me with the facts." Tanganyika Anxious. Intense anxiety has been aroused in Tanganyika over the possibility o' a return to Germany in an effort to meet Adolf Hitler's colonial demands. Mr. MacDonald replied to Geoffrey L.

Daladier Pledges Colonial Protection PARIS. Nov. 16 Daladier today declared that his government' would cede no colonies to Germany and that it would protect the colonial integrity of France as established after the World War. No such measure as cession of colonial territories has even been considered, said the premier in a statement to the press designed to quiet anxious questions, especially from members of Parliament. The Chamber of Deputies committee on colonies yesterday demanded that the government make no commitments concerning the return to Germany of her war-lost colonies in response to- Reichsfuehrer demands without consulting Parliament.

Removal of Trees For Memorial Site Is Under Way 81 Cherry and 17 Elm Trees Are Involved In Clearing Federal park officials disclosed today that work already is under way to transplant or destroy 81 cherry trees and 17 American elms to clear the foundation site of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial on the south shore of the Tidal Basin. They estimated that the entire operation might involve the removal or destruction of 171 of the 328 cherrytrees in the memorial area. Workmen today first marked about 50 holly trees and an assortment of other trees for destruction or removal.

Tree specialists have been at work on the site for several days, officials said, as it is planned to renyove all the trees within a 300foot radius before contracts for the foundation are awarded. Bids for the contract are to be opened Monday by the National Park Service. Roosevelt Considers Fate. Meanwhile President Roosevelt is understood still to be considering the fate of the cherry trees in connection with the memorial plans. At yesterday's press conference he said he probably would have something to say about the matter Friday.

The number of trees actually involved on the foundation site is somewhat larger than the estimate made last Thursday. At that time park officials said 58 cherry trees were involved in the foundation, and that 20 of these would be cut down. The remainder would be transplanted in other park areas. The fact that 17 elms also are doomed within the foundation area was made known for the first time today. many trees as possible will be saved by transplanting." a park official explained.

Officials pointed out that the re- moval was going on now because this is the proper season for transplanting before the ground freezes. MeanwhiHiL. A. Carruthers, pres- ident of the Federation of Associations, announced he has called a special meeting of his Executive Committee tonight to consider the cherry tree controversy. The session will be held at 8 in Room 106 in The Star Building.

Mass Protest Planned. Meanwhile, Executive Committees and officers of many of the city's organizations prepared to discuss plans for a mass protest against the destruction of the cherry trees. A meeting of the representatives has been called for 11:30 a.m. tomorrow at No. 15 Dupont circle.

Among the groups to participate in the session are the District of Columbia Federation of Women's Clubs and the District of Columbia Parent-Teacher Association. A resolution protesting destruction of the trees was passed yesterday by members of the Alliance, who decided to send a representative to the mass meeting tomorrow. At regular monthly meetings last night, several civic organizations passed resolutions opposing destruction of the trees. Members of the Petworth Association said they are not in favor of the memorial if its construction necessitates removal of any of the trees. The Council of Southeast Citizens' Associations voted to send a letter of protest to President Roosevelt, while the Benning Citizens' Association said that the proposed memorial would not compensate for the loss of the trees.
