No Sympathy Is Shown By Court By SETH MOSELEY Associated Press Staff Writer NEW YORK, March 13.—Seven convicted Nazi spies—six stoical and a 26-year-old housewife with a cold smiie on her lips— were sentenced toc!;iy to federal prison to serve a total of 117 years for transmitting U. S. defense secrets to Germany. The court wasted no sympathy in handing out punishment. "I am r>ot only punishing you Cor your treachery," said Judge Henry W. Goddard. "but warnini; others like you that such acts will not be tolerated." The sf/v-en spies — two others who pleaded guilty are to be sentenced later—escaped the wartime penalty of hanging because their espionage took place before the outbreak of war, although the trial was not held until last month. Responsible For Sinkings The government said the tightly-knit ring had gathered and sent aboard shipping data responsible for at least 12 Allied vessels being sunk by U-boats in the Atlantic last summer and fall. A janitor at the German consulate who took a second look at the contents of his boiler grate and a taxicab driver who unwit- t'ngly knocked down a master spy first uncovered the ring. But it was Lucy Boehmler, an 18-year- old high school girl who joined the ring "for fun" and later tattled as chief government witness, who finished it. Most important of those sentenced was Cockey Kurt Frederick Ludwig, 38, a native of Fremont, O., who gre\v up in Germany. The No. 1 man who directed the ring's efforts as a trained Nazi spy, he was sentenced to 20' years, the maximum possible penalty. Former Army Major Next v,-as Dr. Paul T. Borchardt, 56, German citizen and former German army major who analyzed data collected by the ring. He o got 20 years. The others sentenced were: Rene Froehlich, 31, an Army private when arrested; sold Ludwig magazines containing defense data and gathered shipping information; 20 3-ears. Mrs. Helen Pauline Mayer, 26, Long Island housewife; opened her house to ,the ring and helped obtain information and mail espionage letters; 15 years. Karl Victor Mueller, 36. a Long Island machinist, the ring's chauffeur; helped -Ludwig collect some of, the defense data: 15 years. Lead From Papers Frederick Schlosser, 19, former head of a Brooklyn German-American youth group sentenced to 1' years, and Hans Helmut Pagel 20-year-old machinist who pleaded guilty during trial, 15 years Miss Boehmler pleaded guilty before trial. At the trial's start it was disclosed that a cab driven'by Sam j Jl WAR _ THEATER Answer to Previous Puzzle iTsT New shipment of ladies' Munsingwear rcyon knit gowns . in lovely new floral designs ... in a I 1 sizes from 34 to 42 ... a style to fit you comfortably. 2.25 HORIZONTAL 1 Depicted is,^ .tend country, 11 East Indian silver coins, 12 Looked askance. 14 Coarse. 15 Three-banded armadillo (pi.) 17 Editor (abbr.) 18 Marshy place. 20 East Indian , climbing : .shrub, 41 Nova Scotia 21 Exist. • .

Site Being Geared , For "Hub Homes" Site of the federal low rent housing project in northeast Lubbock is now being cleared o£ approximately 40 structures, mostly small houses, H. C. Fender, chairman of Lubbock Housing authority, said Friday, He announced also- that • the name, "Hub Homes," has been given to the project and that plans are to break grounds for the start of actual construction of the 130 family units within a few days. It has not been decided definitely, he said, whether ceremonies will be arranged in connection with the ground breaking. " The present work, he added, is in charge of Dennehey Construction company, contractor for the entire §515,000 project. The contract requires-that the first units be completed within 60 days and Lichtman had struck TJIrich von der Oston, a master spy, here to direct the ring's efforts. From papers found in his pockets, the FBI got it first leads. Meanwhile, in a totally different locale,' Walter Morrissey, a boiler engineer, so arranged the boiler at the German consulate that when the Germans burned consular papers last summer, most of the papers were not destroyed. The documents proved invaluable and helped to smash the ring.

Because of numerous inquiries that have been made by those wishing to buy structures now being wrecked and to move them off the site, Fender explained that this is forbidden specifically. The whole theory of the low-rent housing idea, he explained, is that every unit built is to replace a dwelling place considered unsuitable for human occupancy. Entire annual output of petroleum by Japan is eo.ual to only about one full days production in the U. S. . Officer Training Rules Explained Registrants between ages of 18 and 45 who have been, or are entitled to be deferred by reason of dependents but are otherwise eligible for military service, may volunteer to' compete for selection as an officer candidate in the Army, according to Gen. J. Watt Page, state selective director. Under a new system just authorized by the secretary of war. Gen. Page said, in a letter to local draft boards such registrants volunteering and accepted i'oi- officer candidate training will be inducted into the Army through the selective service system and given four months training in the ranks at private's pay to determine their potential prospects for commissions. At the end of the training period any not recommended for an. officer candidate school may request release from active duty and return to his home, and will not again be subject to call for active duty unless registrants having smilar dependency claims are being inducted into military service. Boards May Reject Gen. Page emphasized that class 3-A registrants who volunteer to try for a jCpmmission must be American citizens with at least four years high school education. Local boards, at their discretion, may reject applications of any who should be deferred as "necessary men" in war production. Volunteers who are under 2L years of age must obtain the wrtten consent of their parents or guardians, he pointed out. The first step to be taken by a class 3-A registrant desiring io volunteer for officer candidate training, according to procedure outlined in a memorandum, from national selective service headquarters, is to file with his local board an "application to volunteer and waiver of dependency" which also must be signed 'by his dependents. After the board has checked his application, together with his citizenship, educational qualifications and status as a 'necessary man" in his civilian activity, the registrant is given .1 preliminary physical examination by the local board examining physician. . . Musi Pay All Expenses If the registrant passes' his physical test, he' is advised vhat his next step ii to present himself at a designated Army reception center or Army replacement center lor qualification examination. All expenses incident to travel to and from the reception or replacement <;enter must be defrayed by the volunteer registrant himself. Upon completion of the qualification examination, the registrant ix'turns to his home, regardless of whether or not he has been found qualified as a volunteer officer candidate, and presents the Army report to his local board. If the registrant has been rejected for officer candidate training, his application to volunteer is denied by his local board and he is retained in class 3-A. If. he has been found acceptable by the Army, he is placed in class 1-A and will be ordered to report for induction as a volunteer at the next call for delivery of men by his local board. The average period of basic and officer candidate training, Gen. Page said, will be from six to nine months, during which time the registrant will, receive the same rate of pay-as a private inducted into the. Army—at the present time §21 a month for the first four months and $30 a month for m HEADACHE ( HORNING AFTER -> ' For jittcrj-. nervous headaches, unc Cspudme. Acts fast became it's liquid.
