Mothers Ask Aid in Finding Children Berlin, Aug. 8 —W- A delegation of German mothers from the JUiS' sian occupied province of Branderburg has appealed to the International ,Red Cross hare for aid In finding thousands of children they said had disappeared from the pro* vitice in recent months, « spokes* man for the Red Cross said today. "The mothers showed us lists of names, but we haven't yet verified them, j nor accusations that boys between the ages of .13 to 17 have been snatched off the streets and never heard from again," the spokesman said. The delegation was received by, the International Red Cross a week ago and also visited Berlin church leaders. The parents maintain, according to British licensed newspaper tele- graf and American licensed tages^ spicgel, that the children have been taken to Russian camps where they are being schooled in a "new Weltanschauung" (philosophy o£ life). The mothers asserted that local Russian commandants referred their appeals for assistango to district leaders.of the Russian sponsored socialist unity party who, :hey said, brusquely dismissed them." ."''• Chandler in No Hurry to Talk to Mickey Owen Cincinnati, O., Aug. 9 —(UP)— A.
