Gruesome Plan to Collect ,*», Skulls Told Nuernberg, Germany, Aug. 8— Iff) — Letters exposing a gruesome German plan to collect skulls and skeletons of all races for an anatomical institute at Strasbourg were ""££ today at the war crimes trial. The International Military Trlbu- ..al was hearing a defense witness bearded Wolfran Sievers, a high SEi officer, but he would not acknowledge the letters. Maj. F. Flynn ones 'of the British prosecution staff produced a letter he said Sievers had written to a Dr. Brandt saying: "We have nearly a complete collection of skulls of all races and peoples at our disposal. Of the Jewish race, however, only a few specimens are available. The war in me East now presents us with an opportunity to overcome this deficiency. By procuring the skulls of Jewish Bolshevic commissars who represent the prototype of a repulsive but characteristic human we have a chance to obtain a palpable scientific document." -The plan was for the German a f. m y . to turn over to field police all living Jewish-Russian commis- ars captured. The Jews were to be given special attention until the arrival of a "special delegate." Photographs, anthropoligical measurements and birth date were to be taken.

Pcmtomine Artist to AppearHere Starting Sunday:on the stage of the New Theatre, that master of pantominc, Peter Paul "will 'appear in person presenting .his: lunusual and sensational "OFF THE RECORD.''.^ riot of laughs featuring outstanding music. Peter Paul, a world; famous artist and star of :Brbadway, stage and television, brings i to theatre goers of Hope a\ presentation that has provided amusement all over the world. Mr. Paul has just returned to civilian life after completion of four years service with Uncle Sam's Navy. While in the Navy Mr. Paul was stationed in Memphis, Tennessee at the Millington Navy Base, where he was featured artist with Clyde -McCoy's/ Sugar Blues Orchestra and' appeared in many outstanding stage ,• presentations with this fine aggregation. It was his stellar work in these shows that brought him to the attention of the Navy High Command which transferred him to the South Pacific, were at the direction of Admiral Nimits he toured the entire field of operations providing entertainment for his mates. Imemdiale- ly after leaving the Service Paul appeared in television broadcasts in New York and worked in leading night-clubs in that city before coming South to present his "OFF THE RECORD" to audiences of the Malco Theatre Circuit. Like Jimmy Savo and other pan- tominc artists, Peter Paul in "OFF THE RECO,RD" concentrates on laughs, and his performances are acclaimed as .the tops on record. Manager Rcmmel Young of the New Theatre has announced that his • screen attraction to 'be pro-, scntcd with "OFF THE RECORD' is "Tars and Spars," starring Ja not Blair. This Is the holiday time bf the year when everybody gels' a va^ callon except Mom. Falher's em« ployer gives him his two weeks off. Tht kids are let but 6f school. The adolescents go to camps. Everyone relaxes.and takes at easy, for it is generally recognized that all ,work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and that even a short rest and a little change sends us back lo our jobs refreshed and full of pep and 'energy. The only exception lo Ihis rule is Mojlher, who is popularly believed lo bo so conslrucled that she never tires or gels fed up on domeslicily and who is so devol- ed lo her home and family that she simply would die of heartbreak if she were separated from Ihem for even-a few days. Nalurally no one would be guilty of this inhuman cruelly, so while Dad goes fishing and Ihe youngslers amuse themselves in their own ways, Mom keeps on doing her daily stint on the Ireadmill. Occarionally a husband, happening by chance lo give Friend W^e a second glance, observes lhal she is looking a lillle peaked--, and. lhat her lemper is sei on a hair Irigger. It occurs lo him lhal possibly she needs a change. So he packs ' her phinc hospital on Thursday morning. She is reported as doing nicely.

So far as the mother is concerned, By R. Louise Emery OfMyw NEA SERVICE, INC. THE STORY: Cecily has organized her own sorority. She has 'no Compunction, ; about "dinging" — blackballing — girls ,she doesn't like. :..-•• XVI I asked unbelievingly,, "Cecily, you don't mean that you'd actually' ding another girl — hurt her perhaps for life —" . '.&,. , "She had no business w^niing lo join, Cecily returned, pouring my tea. 'It'wouldn't be a kindness-to let her come in — sh6v''hasn.'C enough money to keep up with the rest of us and her father is nothing but a garbage collector." "He contracts for the Salvaging of waste producls. He'll make more money as time goes on; — its a new iproject for Him. And what difference does it make, anyhow? His daughter is pretty and sweet." • Cecily giggled. "Aunt Mavis : — you're quaint." "What do the other girls' fathers do?" I pcrsisled. . . . "They're in businesses their families can be proud of," Delia chimed in. "I suppose playground work ranks with Garbage collecting?" I queried. "Salvaging kids who aren t as lucky as Cecily and Ella May and Janinc. Is that why Corinna hasn't, been, acceptable to your sorority, Cecily?" Cecily went scarlet, but Delfa stirred her tea, unembarrassed. I don t see where you have any kick coming ' .You've had your chances,.lo.. amount to something. It ;isn't7rCecilys fault if you like having Corinna hobnobbing with the scum of the earth.' ' We went on drinking our tea. Cecily was still uncomfortable. I saw, but Delia seemed pleased. Shei thought she had setlled my hash tor not letting Corinna take the largesse she had offered. 'And sitting there,looking from one' to the other of them, seeing their smugness, their utter incapacity for compassion except within the limits of their own charmed circle I knew,.inescapably; what: I would' one 'day • do! ;to: b'rcak'ihat stiff. necked pride of Cecily's. Knowing this, I could afford even to feel sorry for them. Cecily followed me into her room when I went back to hang the skirts in her closet. "Aunt Mavis,", she said, I wanted to put Corinna's name up .— but I knew she'd never come in without Mercedes —" I paused with the skirts still over my arm. "Cecily," I said. ."Mercedes _is worth all the Ella Mays and Janmes in the world put together and some day you're going to have lo see it. You can spare yourself a great deal in the future if you'll starl now lo look for some'thioe else' olher lhan money or -social position in people." • "I Ihink Ihey'rc both"'terribly mportant, Aunt Mavis." The implacable opinion of the very young "So does a mole think the universe is entirely dark," I said. But perhaps you consider his ignorance commendable?" "It does all right for the mole," .ccily answered flippantly My answer was hard. "It isn't coins to do for you," and then I despised myself for allowing her .o see how unsteady my lips were "It doesn't matter to me that YOU haven't any money," she •ried to make 'amends. •',-.,, I felt thai inevitable'moment •ushmg upon us now.and 4hc weapon I held was poised to.strike and shaller all the strength of Delia's widen one. I stepped away from Cecily dizily, trying to push the imc far from me. wanting to spare ner — and myself — as long as I could. I nearly spoke then but the yeaiti leld me silent. I went down the nil blindly, seething with Ihe pent up words. Corinna had dinner waiting for me and Robert look off •ny oxfords and rubbed my aching feel a little before he slipped my scuffs over them. There was such love and peace in this house of ours, my hearl cried, why was Ihe peace never enough for me? I could nol sleep lhal night. At ast I made a pretense of not wishing to disturb Robert and slipped away from him to the bed that had been Cecily's. The next three years were momentous ones for the entire world and our lives did not escape the demands of war.First there was conscription and then came Pearl Harbor. Stevie Ralston came home from the East lo stay until he should be drafted; the romance was on again more ardently than ever. This time Myrtle Ralston offered no opposition, facing it squarely that there was no use in being too concerned about Stevie's mature years. His young ones might be all he would ever have; if he wanted Cecily now he was free to marry her. Delia was all for it — Cecily a Ralston but with Steve away ap pealed to her ^s an ideal, arrange Cecily, of course, would re mam at home with Delia. I waited' tensely for announcement of their engagement, but it did not come. Val had wanted to volunteer but Robert persuaded him to:wait. He was majoring.in chemistry in. junior college and his professors said' that he was a wizard. Robert fell that another two . years of lab work, if he were fortunate enough to escape the draft, -would make him much more valuable to his country. "But Slcvie is aiming for the Aiv Force," I told Robert.; "Val could make it easily. He wants Cecily and he can't possibly compete wiui Steve as things are." "I doubt, that Cecily would be good for Val." "He'd be good • for HER," I said. "And besides —" I broke off. And besides if she married Val she would be away from Della's influence. I could be with her often, teach- her all the things Della had neglected. Married to Steve she would be almost as inaccessible to me as she was now. .
