T hree Germans
Lose Citizenship
In FBI Probe
Bund Members Held
For Failure To Give
Up Foreign Allegiance
DETROIT, April 6. --()- Three
German born naturalized citizens-
one a former Nazi Storm Trooper-
lost their citizenship in Federal Court
here today. The FBI identified them
Helmut Wolfang Hauer, 28, who
became a member of the Storm
Troopers in Hanover, Germany dur-
ing 1933, the FBI said.
Adolph Goeler, 35, a former mem-
ber of the German American Bund.
Otto Grimm, 34, a member and
former officer of the bund.
All three were charged by the FBI
with holding mental reservations and
failing to foreswear allegiance to
Germany when they were naturalized.
Judge Arthur F. Lederle signed the
revocation orders on application of
Louis M. Hopping, Assistant United
States District Attorney.
Hauer, born in Hanover, came to
the United States in 1930 and be-
came a citizen six years later. FBI
agents said that Hauer has made
three trips back to Germany and that
in 1933 he joined the Storm Troops at
Hanover and remained there for two
He did not contest the petition to
revoke his citizenship. According to
the FBI, Hauer said he would not
fight for the United States against
his home country on foreign soil and
expressed a desire to return to Ger-
Dutch Circles
Optimistic for
Future of War
LONDON, April 6. -(P)- Dutch
circles here declared today that the
people of the Netherlands are becom-
ing increasingly optimistic over the
outcome of the war and disclosed that
the country is full of reports that
"scores of British agents" have been
landed and are making secret prepar-
ations for an Allied invasion.
These sources, whose names can
not be disclosed, said that the waves
of optimism sweeping the country is
being demonstrated by new outbreaks
of sabotage and anti-Nazi attacks.
The British were said to hve been
landing parties of two and three per-
sons during the past six weeks, in
spite of the heavy fortifications and
vigilant patrols along most of the
Dutch coast, these -persons making
their way to the interior.
Only recently the German radio
broadcast a report of similar activi-
ties in Norway.
(The Nazi-controlled Kalundborg
radio said in a domestic broadcast
that a building yard at the Danish
town of Randers, engaged in filling
contracts for "large scale installa-
tions," was destroyed by fire Monday
night. The broadcast, recorded in New
York by the U.S. Foreign Broadcast
Intelligence Service, said four men
had been arrested, indicating that the
fire was the latest of a group of sabo-
tage acts in that occupied country.)
Dutch resistance to German oc-
cupation has stiffened greatly as re-
ports of Russian victories filtered
through the German censorship and
the people have seen for themselves
the increasing momentum of the Al-
lied air offensive.
German propaganda in the Neth-
erlands is attempting to minimize
the role being played by American

Hirh School
Buys Bomber
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 6.-
(P)-Five thousand Grand Rapids
residents, many of them South High
School students, gathered at the
Kent County Airport today for the
Army-Navy christening of '"The
Spirit of South High", a $300,000
four-motored Flying Fortress pur-
chased 'through the high school's
"Buy-A-Bomber" campaign.
Gov. Harry F. Kelly, Mayor George
W. Welsh of Grand Rapids; Col. Ed-
ward C. Black, Commandant at the
Army Meteorological School here,
and Col, A. C. Foulk, Commandant
at Lockburne Army Air Base at Col-
umbus, 0., from where the big
bomber was flown for the ceremony,
were among those who offered their
congratulations to the students for
their campaign, which resulted in
sale of more than $375,000 worth of
war bonds.
The bomber arrived here shortly
before the ceremony, the sides of its
fuselage bearing the insignia, "The
Spirit of South High." It left as
soon as the christening was com-
The ship was formally christened
by LaVonne Kronberg, student queen
of the high school, who released half
a dozen helium-filled balloons in the

Republicans Win Easily
As Ziegler Defeats Reid
Victories Indicated for Bishop, Hayward
In Regent Race; Dr. Elliott Is Reelected
(Continued from Page 1)
The Supreme Court race developed into a see-saw contest between 71-
year-old Circuit Judge Neil E. Reid of Mt. Clemens, a Republican, and
Justice Bert D. Chandler, a Democrat, with a second Republican, Justice
Emerson R. Boyles, definitely a contender. The fourth candidate, Probate
Judge Frank L. McAvinchey of Genessee County, a Democrat, appeared to
be out of the running.
Chandler was the pace-setter in early unofficial returns, but Reid over-
hauled him in the mid-afternoon<



count, which included populous pre-
cincts in the Macomb-Wayne County
industrial district. At most stages,
however, Boyles was fewer than 5,000
votes behind the leader and it ap-
peared tonight that only the official
canvass could determine the two
Dr. Eugene B. Elliott, State Super-
intendent of Public Instruction since
1935, paced the Republican ticket in
his successful quest for a fourth
term. Unofficial returns gave him
an advantage of more than 80,000
votes over Edward W. McFarland,
Wayne University Professor and for-
mer Democratic Chairman of the
State Liquor Control Commission.
In the remaining contests, unoffi-
cial returns indicated the election
of R. Spencer Bishop, Flint, and
Ralph A. Hayward, Kalamazoo, to
the University of Michigan Board of
Regents over their Democratic rivals,
Dr. Ira D. McCoy of Bad Axe and
Charles P. Nugent from the Univer-
sity of Detroit Law School; of W. G.
Armstrong, Niles, and Sarah Van
Hoosen Jones, Rochester, to the State
Board of Agriculture over Democrats
Arthur Jewett, Mayor of Mason, and
Joseph B. Carey, Mt. Pleasant; and
of Stephen S. Nisbett, Republican,
of Fremont, over Bernard T. Foley,
Benton Harbor.
Democratic leaders expressed dis-
appointment at the light vote, par-
ticularly in their Wayne County
stronghold, which ordinarily can be
counted upon for roughly one-third
of the total of ballots cast. Wayne
County-and Detroit-went Demo-
cratic as usual but unofficial returns

British Open
New Offensive
Against Axis
(Continued from Page 1)
munique failed to mention air action
in connection with the Eighth Army's
new attack, but there was every rea-
son to suppose coordinated Allied
fighters, fighter bombers and bohib-
ers from bases both to the'south and
west of the battle area pitched in to
hammer Rommel's exposed points.
Yesterday's bag of enemy aircraft
shot down was placed tonight at 52,
the greatest number ever downed in
one day in the African campaign.
To the previously announced toll
of 48 planes shot down during the
day were added four blasted out of
the sky shortly after dusk last night
by RAF Hurricane pilots who at-
tacked a quartet of tri-motored Ital-
ian torpedo planes attempting to sink
Allied shipping off the Algerian coast.
The biggest event of the day was
the double-barreled operation in
which Mitchells inflicted heavy dam-
age on an enemy convoy in the straits
of Sicily, and whose American Light-
ning fighter escort, on the way home
from the raid, intercepted a big Ger-
man transport plane formation pro-
tected by Stukas and fighters and
shot down 31 in all.

state's 400,000-vote total.
In the highway commissioner race,
Reid rolled up an advantage of more
than 20,000 in Wayne County, but
dropped a quarter of that edge in
Republican Kent County alone and
lost virtually every out-state county,

bers of county boards of supervisors,

steads which have led to past litiga-
tion because they lacked the signa-
ture of the signer's spouse.
