terials which will be used to make
automobile uph olitery, draperies, win-
dow screens, food wrappings and
other articles, will be more intensive-
ly studied next fall in the revised
plastics course in the College of En
According to Prof. Donald W. Mc-
Cready of the chemical engineering
department, highpolyners, such as
synthetic rubber and nylon, are
among the subjects that will be con-
sidered in this course. Students will
be concerned with the production of
plastics from raw materials and the
evaluation of their physical proper-
ties in the laboratory that accompan-
ies this course.
Information Releaseld
"Highpolymers are the new syn-
thetic materials, many of which were
developed just prior to and during
the war," Prof. McCready said. "Un-
til the end of the war they were
used exclusively for war purposes.
They are now coming on the civilian
market and the technical information
is just beginning to be released."
In addition to the articles mention-
ed before, highpolymers will be used
for fabrics, raincapes and shower
curtains. These plastic materials
withstand rough usage and exposure
to weather, acids, solvents, and other
conditions which normally destroy
the materials previously used.
Graduate Work
More advanced material can be
taken up in the plastics course, Prof.
McCready said, because a course
which will serve as background for
advanced courses in the fields of
plastics, paints, rubber and paper is
being revised on a graduate level.
This course will take up the prelim-
inary and fundamental material in
the field of plastics.

offic ers Charge
Aied (6ermtans
MOSCOW, May 17- ).-Charges
that the Franco regime "under a
mask of neutrality actually par-
ticipated in the war on the side of
Germany" were made today in a
statement caried by Izvestia and at-
tributed to two captured Nazi offi-
cers who were former military at-
taches in Spain.
A 10,000-word statement by the
two officers, addressed to the Soviet
Government, declared that secret
plans for military collaboration on
a large scale were worked out by the
Spanish and German general staffs
at the close of the Spanish Civil War.
The officers said that a secret
plan was devised for the capture of
Gibraltar through joint German-
Spanish assault, that the Spaniards
spied on British and American
ship movements for the Germans,
that they made Spain's ports and
airfields available for German sub-
marine and aircraft, and relayed
valuable military information to
Germany gained by Spanish re-
presentatives in London.
They said that Field Marshal Wil-
helm Keitel and Col. Gen. Gustav
Jodl, now on trial at Nuernberg on
war crimes charges, took leading
roles in making the plans, which in-
cluded a secret "Isabella Felix" ope-
ration for seizing Gibraltar and wid-
ening Spanish possessions in Afri-
ca. It was not carried out because
Hitler decided to concentrate all his
efforts on beating Russia, the offi-
cers added.
The two captured Nazis were
named by Izvestia as Col. Hans Re-
mer, former German military attache
in Tangier, and Lt.-Gen. Gunther
Krappe, former German military at-
tache in Madrid.
"Due to the nature of our ser-
vice activity in the capacity of mili-
tary attaches in Tangier and Ma-
drid, facts are known to us which
show that Spain under a mask of
neutrality actually participated in
the war on the side of Germany,"
their statement said.
Krappe and Remer said that the
"Isabella Felix" plan was supposed
to have been carried out in conjunc-
tion with a "Sea Lion" operation to
capture the British Isles.
Remer said he was asked in July,
1940, to issue 50 false passports for
German officers assigned to study
the fitness of Spanish roads for Nazi

motorized armed columns.
In August, 1940, the statement add-
ed, Spain increased her forces in
Morocco from 30,000 to 100,000 men.
The next month a Spanish division
practicing maneuvers to storm Gi-
braltar performed so well their com-
mander told the Germans his men
"could take Gibraltar in 20 minutes."

in occupied countries would hide the
bells as long as possible. When they
were seized by the Nazis, word would
be sent to the British and Americans
through the underground to bomb
the ships in which they were taken.
In other cases, train crews would
ihrow them off the trains."
About 100,000 bells in all were
confiscated. In general, Prof. Price
said, the 35,000 which were not melt-
ed were not harmed. Careless hand-
ling accounted for what damage was
done along this line.
