After Leaving Germany
Mystery Surrounds
Reasons For Action
S. Beach Conger, head of the New
York Herald Tribune's Berlin Bureau
and former editorial director of The
Daily, was reported expelled from
Germany, relatives here were in-
formed yesterday.
A cablegram from Amstredam stat-
ing that Conger and his wife had left
Berlin and were safe in Amsterdam
was received by relatives late yes-
terday. There wer not details, how-
ver, as to whether'the couple had
been officially rodered out of the
country, nor did it state the circum-
stances leading to his sudden depar-
Previous radio reports emanating
from Berlin stated that Conger had
been expelled following an article
which appeared in the Tuesday morn-
irig edition of the New York Herald
The article stated that the German
high command was refusing to invade
any neutral states in an effort to
break the present military stalemate
n Europe.
Germany had for some time har-
)ored the intention of invading the-
Netherlands, Conger revealed in his
report, but the -conservative army
high command flatly refused to carry,
out any such plan, presumably for
fear of arousing neutral opinion to
the point of seriously impairing Ger-
many's sources of supply.
Conger graduated from the Univer-
sity in 1932, returning the following
year to work toward a Master's De-
