IP— (UP) — The trial of Ernst Baumgart, tormer Luftwaffe officer, was in- terupted by a 42-day adjournment today after he told a war crimes court he flew Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun to Denmark just before Berlin fell to besieging Russian orces. Baumgart, 32, was declared sane after a psychiatric examination two months go but the adjournment was ordered to carry out further investigations. Baumgart testified he flew Hitler^ and his mistress-bride out of Berlin on April 28, 1945, landed at Madge- burg to avoid allied air fighters and went on to 'Denmark on April 29. The plane landed 45 miles north of the Eider river, Baumgart said. He testified Hitler and Eva wailed 30 minutes for another plane, which picked them up and set out for an unknown destination. Hitler paid him off with a check for 20,000 Reichsmarks drawn on a Berline 'bank, Baumgart said.

Judge McKnight overruled Gross' demurrer which contended the state supreme court had previously held that gambling debts are not collectable. 24tJ to eat:;;as if she hadn't had any. breakfast either.

Communists to deliver a one-two punch. The strikes in France and naly are clearly aimed al lhe United States, as well as the harassed government of those countries. Each act of sabotage, each day's loss of production, each new tactic that adds lo confusion also adds to the bill, that, America wi,U have to pay. Probably the Communist counterattack, like its target, the Marshall Plan, has an interim and a long- lerm program. The presenl des- perale measures of Moscow's agents may not win a complete victory. As of now it appears that they won't. But unless the Schuman and de Gasperi governments stand firm, and get domestic support and outside assistance, authoritarian regimes might replace them as a resulit of • Communist action. That outcome might be the Reds' second choice. The memories ol fascism in Italy and of the Lava, gang in France would surely drive a lot of people away from a strong right-wing government and into lhe leflisls' arms. Thus if lhe pre sent Red allacks fail, Ihey can launch a long-range campaign for a .yiclory lhat could be won either directly or by default. With Ihis wave of strikes Moscow has moved into the hottest, 1 most active phase of the cold war. France and Italy are the logical places to begin it. They are the Communist strongholds of western Europe. They are also slated lo receive aboul 92 per cenl of American slop-gap aid lo Europe —when il gels there. Moscow and its local agents are making an open, all-out effort to wreck both countries, beyond hope of repair, before American help arrives. It may' seem tiresome to rehash lhe details of a situation that is so $ obvious. For months there has been no doubt thai inlernaional communism would try to sabotage the Marshall Plan. Now lhe sabolage has starled. It also seems that Congress, which today is best able to thwart the aims of lhal sabo- lage, has some members who are unaware of it. Since the special session opened, there has been a lot of time con' sumed by piddling attacks or communism. But lhe strongest most effective force— help foi yi France and Italy— has not yet beei brought inlo play. Even some o lhe congressmen who reluctantly voted for it, exhibited no feeling o urgency. Secretary Marshall set a dead line of Dec. 1 as the date when hi plan should haye the funds il need lo start operating. Events abroa have proved him right. But sdm of lhe members of Congress hav balked al being "stampeded" int action. They have failed to see tlu they are not being stampeded b *f the White House or the Stale D>- partment, but by the Kremlin. Right now, the chances for quie aclion on lhe long-range Marshall Plan—lei alone its approval— are not bright. Reluctant congressmen, who could see no reason for haste in voting money for stop-gap aid, can scarcely be expected to hurry with the broader program, unless they have a change of heart and viewpoint. It might help bring about thai change if they would ask themselves these questions: If lhe European Communists lose The major question concerning the Arabs right now is the strength of the guerrilla bands and the ability of Hagana, the Jewish defense force, to protect Jewish settlements and food supplies against Arab attacks. Hagana is far better organized and equipped lhan were lhe Zionists during the Arab revolt of Earl Anderson, 9; Eva Anderson. 7; Jerry Anderson. 6; Clarence Ray Anderson, 3; Ola Faye Anderson, 8 months; J. V. Daugherty, 13; Essie Daugherty, 12, and Charles Daugherty, 10. The Daugherty children were Anderson's slop-children. A ninlh child was at the home of relatives. Anderson told J. J. Phillips 9f DeKalb that before he and his wife had left their home they had instrucled the children to put "a couple of sticks of wood on the fire" to keep the house warm.. Anderson was quoted as saying the fire apparenlly was caused by lhe wood slove after the childrer had put pine sticks on the fire and gone to bed. It seems certain that there will be much more bloodshed on each side. Future casulaties cannot be forecast accurately by anyone. I Thousands fell in the 1936-39 revolt. The great number of Jewish set- lements in the Holy Land tends to disperse Hagana, in defiance_of the nilitary rule to concentrate forces. Many of the setllements, however, are 'well fortified and starlegically placed for defense. o State Firm Charged by Examiner Washington, Dec. 20 — (/P) —Max M.
