Drawing Cards Reaction of Sentenced War Criminals By CLINTON B. CONGER Nuernberg, Oct. 1 — (UP) — The Nuernberg defendants, who deliberately brought suffering to so many millions, tried mightily to hide thsir own emotions today when the time came 'or them to squirm, Some of them succeeded. Not all. As the war crimes tribunal announced its verdicts and thon the sentences, the German military and naval defendants held up well, but some of the politicians seemed stunned, bewildered. This is how they took their sentences Hermann Goering. commander of the German Air Force, sentenced to death, flushed slightly Rudolf Hess. No. 2 Nazi, looked depressed, mumbled and fumbled. He held his earphones at his side while the court announced he must spend the rest of his life in prison. Hess remained standing, and had to be led from the dock. Field Marshal Wilhelm Von Keitel. chief of th2 German high comma rid, stood expressionless with straight military bearing w"'lc he dock. Ernst Kaltenbrunnsr, chief of the Nazi secret police, bowed stiffly from the waist, heard his death sentence, bowed again, and left the left the dock smartly. Alfred Rosenberg, anti-Jewish Nazi philosopher, angrily thi<rw down his earphones when they crackled out his punishment — death. Hans Frank, the Nazi governor of Poland, apparently did Mot know what to do when he entered the dock. He smiled weakly at his lawyer just before he received his death sentence. Julius Streicher, the world's most vicious Jew-baiter stopped chewing gum for the first time in two days. When he heard his death sentence, he grimaced, nodded slightly, and left. Walter Funk, economics minister and Reichsbank director, seemingly stood in a fog after he received a life term. A guard had io nudge him to get him out of the dock. Admiral Karl Doenitz, commander in chief of the German Navy, stood gravely as he learned he must serye 10 years in prison. He banged "down his earphones and walked quickly from the court. Admiral Eric Raeder, 70-year old navy commander, appeared almost unmoved by his life sentence. A guard, however, had to tell him :o remove his earphones. He grimaced toward the bench as he disappeared from the courtroom for OPA Allows Increase on Oranges Washington, Oct. 1 — (&)— The OPA raised growers ceiling prices on oranges today but said consumer costs should not increase because the boost amounts to only n fractional part of a cent a pound. The agency increased California oranges 12 cents :'or a 75-pound container while Florida oranges were raised 6 cents for a 90-pound container. Most of the .increase was attirbuted to higher cost of containers, but OPA said California was allowed a larger increase Here and There in Arkansas because of higher picking, packing ton county on and hauling costs.

His tiny, toothbrush moustache worked up and down in front of a frowning face. He had to be told to remove the headset. , Gen. Alfred Jod, army chief of staff, continued to stand stiffly 'or a moment after receiving his death sentence. Small red spots appeared on his brightly flushed cheek;, but that was the only sign of emotion.

It will endeavor to "develop far-reaching plans for rebuilding obsolete portions of American cities and ::or planning the orderly future development of our communities. ' "Obsolescence" explains Juste- mcnt, "is gradually and inevitably ruining most of our cities, and far too little is being done to combat the economic and social consequences of the deterioration. "The huge task that confronts us clearly is not the responsibility of the nation's architects alone, but our profession recognizes ihe gravity of the problem and recognizes its (responsibility to plan with other appropriate groups in developing a working solution to the problem.' Justement says it is estimated that the nation will spend :°rom $10,000,000,000 to $15,000,000,00 annually for new construction of all kinds. "If the investment is guided,' he says, "by integrated planning designed to improve the pattern of our physical plant as we replace and expand it. then we can have a vastly better way of life in our communities.

Addressing the Mid-South Milk Producers Association here last night, Holman declared the South had gained more than any other area in the nation in milk production since 1924. He .said the gain was 60 percent, adding: "thats not enough — for the South, now importing much of its supply of dairy products from other states should be at least self- sufficient. And it can be." Evidence Links Klan With German Bund Washington, Oct. 1 — (/P)— The Justice Department said today it has uncovered evidence establishing links between the Ku Klux Klan and the German-American Bund from 1937 to 19-11. An official who has read the evidence said it "definitely proves that the two organizations collaborated to promote racial and religious dissension prior to the war." He told a reporter ihat government agents investigating Klan ae- ivitirs ferreted out the evidence of Bund-Klan ties. The department has promised swift prosecution of the Klan if any violations of federal laws are found. The official said the evidence of collaboration includes: 1.

L. Compere announced today. This compared with 450 whites and 12 Negroes last month. Compere said he did not expect Arkansas to meet its October quota but that it "will do belter than last month" when a large number of men had to be re-examined before induction because it had been 90 days since their military physical examinations. He said many of the men counted on to fill September quotas originally had been examined before the June induction moratorium. He explained that 21 days must expire 50.000 or more of these postcards a year. Naturally, when faced with one of these cards, the usual reaction of the sender is to write something clever and bright. The results are sometimes a little heavy and struggling, butoccasuionally there are cunny messages, a ;cw tender ones, some a bit pathetic and a -:cw highly untidy ones written by oenumbed characters, who somehow or olher think they can get a -Jirly message through the mails. The management of the club usually acts as an unofficial censor, :;oing through the Jot to weed out vulgarisms or obscenities. The rest are sent-along to communities as • ! ar apart as the poles; in one day it Gilmore's Restaurant on the east side, which annually dispatch cs more than 25,000 such cards to friends of customers, the addresses rcangsd from the U.S.S.

Usually the cards bear some variation of the "Having fine time, wish you were here" cliche. If the diner is lucky enough to get one, the inscription is not unlikely to be simply: "We're having steak." One writer added to this mouth-watering statement, "Eat your heart oul."

At the bridge is a sign pointing over the river: "This is the home town of Cordcll Hull." I have been that way, and havo seen that sign, several limes. And every time 1 look at it I thin-<: This? is the ultimate in tribute to any living man—that lie is so fii,iious his home town needs no other asset to proclaim its importance before the world. For Cordell Hull came out of tho Tennessee mountains two generations ago to establish himself as n beloved American, a true-blue na- .tional leader, and founder of the United Nations. He was to World War II what Woodrow Wilson was to World War ' I—a man of both idealism and practicality, loved at home and trusted by men of all nations. As I wrile this Ccrdell Hull. i/;y/ 75, lies grievously ill in Wash- inglan. May he be spared. Seldom does the nation have a figure overshadowing presidents, yet Hull, the man who might —and should—have been president, was always the equal of tho man in the highest office, and frequently commanded an even greater rcspct. I will always feel, regardless o.f the people's judgment at the lime, that America made a mistake when she passed up a chance to make Hull presidenl. It made no differ- e\ce to Hull.

This is a grave shortcoming when we consider how many obstacles Io our victory in the recent war arose not from 'inadequate manpower, man from inadequate or inferior manpower, but from inadequate or inferior equipment and supplies. What seems needed now is u master plan and a clear policy for national defense, arrived at by the appropriate military and civilian departments of government, and * by representatives of research sci- f iice, engineering and producing hduslry. Such a plan (or series of industry-wide plans should reveal how far it is safe to go in demobilizing a war expanded industry r without losing the nucleus of expert technicians and trained workers who are vital to peacetime advancement and quick re-expansion in case of emergency.

West coast shipowners, however, firmly opposed union security demands made by the unions — the CIO Marine Engineers and the AFL Masters, Males nnd Pilots. Consequently, government negotiators pushed for a settlement of wage issues in the hope if com- pleling agreements covering East coast and gulf ports. At San Francisco, meanwhile, negotiations between West coast striking union—the CIO Longshore- negotiations between West coast waienronl employers and a third striking union—the CIO Longshoremen—were broken off.

Baruch made it clear that the United States, delegation could not consider any modification in the "fundamental principles" of its plan, which was attacked at length by Wallace in a letter on foreign policy written last July 23 while Wallace then was secretary of commerce. The United States delegate released, with the direct authorization of President Truman, a long memorandum to the president answering Wallace's letter point by point. He also released the state ment which he said Wallace did not sign; an alternate statement submitted to him by Wallace which he rejected, and a telegram dispatched by Baruch to Wallace late yesterday charging that the "errors" are "gravely dangerous to the delicate negotiations now under way" and that they "create confusion and division among our people." Wallace was not available for comment in Washington last night. However, an associate said Wallace had not broken off his exchange en the matter with Baruch but had telephoned a suggested statement yesterday afternoon to Ferdinand Eberstadt, Baruch assistant.
