KORHLM BONN. Owmany (AP) — W«t Germans today looked with ntitad toward Israel and the trial of Nazi SS lender Adolf fciehmann—ff-ellnga of fear, guilt, remorse and also Indifference. The Bonn government Is wot ried that the trial will arouse th* world anew against Germany. Chancellor Konrad Adenauer him- Mlf has appealed for understand- Ing and torgiwnpss. There Is fear that Eichmann may Implicate persons active today In the West German government. "I hope we cleaned out all the bad once," said one high official. It would be horrible if he implicated someone in the government today." The man in the street generally expresses guilt and remorse but there have been some who told this reporter: "We are not going to learn anything we didn't know 6 ye*ra ago." The Bonn Justice sued a report March 29 showing that West German courts tried and sentenced at least 2,037 Nazi criminals between 1945 and I960 for crimes ranging from simple assault to mass murder. But this report covers only three of the 10 states and West Berlin. The Justice Ministry says seven states have kept no statis tics on such trials. There is no doubt that Nazi criminals were vigorously pursued and tried by West German authorities. But this lack of trial statistics could well be an indication of the desire to forget the past.

Kennedy has permitted reporters to- watch him tee off only once so far. The golfing friend of Kennedy and Eisenhower made these comments about.their games: Eisenhower normally was a high 80 shooter.

"We don't tell how many members we have, and we'll not tell the names of our members," explained Robert Welch, of Belmont, Mass., when interviewed on a local television program Sunday night.

Story of Three-Mile House Told to Historical Society Temperature In April Averages 43 fa the first one-third of April became weather history, the average mean temperature for the 10 days was chalked up as a cool 43 degrees. This Is 14 degrees below the average mean temperature for the entire month of April last year. Weather observers, at the close of March, noted that March, 'this year, was much better weatherwise than March, 1960. But April, up to today, ias been cold and wet.

Roedel traced the history of the structure from its original construction in 1858, through enlargements and additions, to the present time and detailed the ownerships and uses of the building for over 100 years.

Nixon, Goldwater and Rockefeller were told they would be welcome as silent guests. ' But the congressional contingent, some of which has been vocal in blaming Nixon personally for his loss o f the presidential contest to John F. Kennedy, seemingly underestimated the former vice president's determination to assert his position as titular bead of the party. Party insiders said a decision to let Nixon introduce Eisenhower briefly at the June 1 dinner was reached after the congressional leaders had rejected a proposal that Eisenhower speak in Washington and Nixon in Los Angeles at simultaneous dinners, to be linked by telecast. Nixon had been invited to be the principal speaker at a Los Angeles County fund raising dinner, first scheduled for May 25 and then changed to May 24 at his request. Later Nixon's aides notified the dinner committee his schedule was such he would be available only on June 1. Threatened with a rival dinner, promoters of the Washington affair reportedly yielded a compromise. The upshot was that they agreed tentatively that Nixon could introduce Eisenhower. MONDAY, AFlta.
