Nazi Inhumanities
Stressed by Priests

MUNSTER, (JTA)—"We want
to overcome our sufferings and
forgive but we must insist upon
and state the truth so as to avoid
a repetition of similar inhumani-
ty," Canon Reinhold Friedrichs
declared at an international
meeting of 100 Roman Catholic
priests and monks, all survivors
of the Da c h a u concentration
The clerics attended the Ber-

gen-Belsen "Hour of Atonement"
organized by the 79th conven-
tion of German Roman Catholics
in Hanover.
In Kassel, a d e m a n d was
voiced that all denazification
files should be destroyed un-
less they concerned crimes. The
demand was made by Ludwig
Schneider, Free Democratic
member of the Hesse parliament.
He said that such files should
have been destroyed or publicly
burned "to testify that the de-
nazification era was • over."

`Our Legs Don't Get Cold Anymore!"

"With electric heat,. there are no drafts or
cold spots--even the floors are nice and
warm," says Mrs. William Albert of Nankin
Township, Michigan. "We saved $300 on
installation when we converted from the
old system. Electric heat saved us space,
too,—now we have an extra closet where
our chimney used to be. There's nothing to
worry about or take care of. My draperies
stay a whole lot cleaner. For all the electric
appliances we have—range, water heater,
clothes dryer, air conditioner—we think
,our $35 per month electric bill is a real
bargain. Believe me, once you have elec-
tric heat, you won't want anything else."
