this country's chief counsel for such
prosecution in the European theater.

general secretary of Alumni Associa-t
Lt. Zalenski, former sports editor
of The Daily, is with the Sixth Arm-
ored Division in Germany, and wrote.t
"There is one 14-year-old boy in the
house where my mortar platoon is
billeted. He was in the Hitler Youtht
organization and believes all the fan-l
tastic lies ever dished out by Hitlerl
and his cohorts.
"The murder and torture of m'-
lions of Poles, Russians, and Slavsx
was astounding news to him," hel
continued. "He couldn't believe it.
The Germans invaded Poland be-
cause the Poles had secretly con-
spired to attack Germany. The Ca-
tholics and Jews conspired against
the gove nment and got what they
deserved, he says."
"The Germans did not defend this
town we are in because they did not
want to destroy it or hurt the people,
he said, but couldn't understand why
they were shelling it from the hills
beyond and were killing civilians,"
Lt. Zalenski wrote.
"The climax came when my inter-
preter told isum that the men around
him were a Jew, a Pole, a French-
man, a Slav and three Catholics. He
paled and appeared very frightened.
We assured him that no harm woul-l
come to him from us and then he
relaxed a little."
