WAC, Colonel Held for Theft
Of Valuable Hessian Jewelsj
By The Associated Press
W A SHINGTON, June 7 - The
Army today revealed the arrest of a
WAC Captain and her colonel-hus-
band in the story-book theft of a
fabulous $1,500,000 of jewels and
other treasure from a castle owned
by the ancient German House of
Two others-a major still on active
duty and a corporal who has been
discharged---are sought, but their ar-

Sign of State
Illness' -- Kelly
JACKSON, Mich., June 7-(IP)-
Conditions which led to the investi-
gation and ouster of officials at the
State Prison of Southern Michigan
were "an outward and rather spec-
tacular symptom of an illness that
is still unremedied," Raymond J.
Kelly asserted here today.
Kelly, Republican aspirant for gov-
ernor in the June 18 primary elec-
.tions, declared that "as long as a
political machine holds the state gov-
ernment in its grasp, there is always
the probability that such corrup-
ion may flourish in other branches
"The shocking episode of the re-
cent laxity at the southern Michigan
State Prison was-only a symptom of
the disease that is destroying honest,
efficient administration in all branch-
es of your state government," he de-
Kelly charged . that state penal
system with being "politics-ridden"
and "so soft that a' notorious law
breaker was allowed to escape and
terrorize the nation before his orgy
of crime was ended by the police of
"Conditions that allowed such lax-
ity to develop are still unchanged,"
he continued. "When the heads of
your government begin playing poli-
tics with their responsibliity and au-
thority, they open the way for more
unscrupulous men to invade your
state and prey on its citizens."
Amputee Film Scheduled

tion of Percy Jones amputees will

in the Rackham- Amphitheatre.
looms-officials recovered that part
which they said was the woman's
toot. They placed this at 25 to 50
per cent of the hoard. The rest, they
said, went to the colonel. The author-
ities do not have this portion now
but indicated they know where it
can be found.
Col. A. C. Miller of the Provost
Marshal General's Office and his as-
sistant, Lt. Col. J. S. Myers, unfolded
the story at a news conference. They
told it as follows:
The hoard, in a lead-lined casket
within a wooden box, ,was hidden in
the deepest cellar of the 100-room
Kronberg Castle near Frankfurt-on-
Main, which susequently was taken
over for an officers' rest :home.
When Third Army troous first
moved into the area, thirsty GIs went
hunting for liquor in the castle. They
found 1,800 bottles of choice wines.
Then they found 1,600 bottles of very
ancient vintage more carefully hidden
near the treasure hoard. The cir-
cumstances indicated something else
The corporal is alleged to have
carried on the search, dug up the
jewels and turned them over to the
WAC, who was in charge of the rest
home. Where the major came in, and
just how the hoard was smuggled
to this country, were not disclosed
At any rate the major and the cor-
poral, Miller said, apparently did not
get their share.
It was not any tip from those two
but the subsequent marriage of the
WAC and the colonel, Miller related,
that aroused the suspicion of Army
authorities and set them on the trail.
The jewels had been buried be-
neath the castle in the fall of 1944
when heavy Allied air raids convinced
the members of the Hesse family,
relatives of Queen Victoria of Eng-
land, that they would be safer there
than in their bank vaults.

BAD NAUHEIM, Germany, June
7 -- Seventeen American soldiers,
staging a mass protest against what
they called Army injustices," re-
fused to testify today at the trial of
a lieutenant charged with brutality
to U.S. Soldiers, and thereby forced
the prosecution to wind up its case
against another officer.
One witness, Pfc. Peter Claim, 21,
of Uniontown, Pa., declared the Lich-
field Detention Camp case trials "are
the biggest frame job I've seen in the
Army, and I want justice."
Another, Aubrey L. Richey, 22, of
Birmingham, Ala., asserted he would
testify "only if this case goes to the
United States, which beyond doubt
is the only place where justice will

at the trial of Lt. Leonard W. Ennis
of Peekskill, N.Y., charged with mis-
treating inmates of the 10th Re-

Several of the men-each of whom
declared he had not talked with the
other witnesses-criticized the $60
fine imposed on Pfc. William B. Nor-
ris, of Mulga, Okla., who was con-
Pvt. Otto C. Holt, of Gilman, Ill.,
declared "I'm not going to be better
off if I testify in this trial, and I'm
certainly not going to be worse off."
"From what I've seen of the Ar-
my, I've not seen much justice," he
said. "Somebody beats me on the
head and gets a $60 fine. I go AWOL
and get 20 years. I don't think ano-
ther six months will hurt me."

"shows clearly that the CIO is op-
posed to any restriction on the right
of unions to conduct a strike in any
industry at any time and in further-
ance of any demands they see fit."
Murray Asks Veto
Murray had called for a veto of
the bill, on which the President must
act by midnight Wednesday with
the assertion that it was designed to
"repress labor and destroy its rights"
and would "encourage and increase
The Case measure would among
other things establish mediation
machinery, create fact-finding boards
in public utility disputes, make unions
subject to contract suits.
The six senators said Murray's
position is "tenable only if we agree
with certain basic premises upon
which he proceeds:
"1. That the right to strike is an
absolute right, the exercise of which
may under no conditions by curtailed
or restrained, even when it threatens
to deprive the public of transporta-
tion, fuel, light, water, and other
essentials of life.
"2. That labor organizations should
be immune from laws applying to all
others, which prohibit robbery and
extortion in interstate commerce.
Immunity from Anti-Trust Laws
"3. That labor organizations should
be immune from the anti-trust laws,
which apply to all others, although
the purpose and effect may be the
same when done by labor organiza-
tions as when done by any others.
"4. That although all others who
engage in business are responsible
for the acts of their agents acting
within the scope of their authority,
labor unions should not be held re-
"5. That although a labor organ-
ization is treated as an entity for
purposes of exemption from taxation
and for purposes of exercising privi-
leges under the Wagner Act, it should
not be treated as an entity for pur-
pose of suit for violation of its con-

'Strong Arin' Iand Is
Charged with Killing
ATLANTA, June 7--t ?-A Geor-
gia assistant attorney general re-
ported today his undercover agents
had linked an inner "strong arm"
group of the revived Ku Klux Klan
with a killing and a flogging.
Dan Duke, who is conducting the
state legal department's investiga-
tion of Klan activities by order of
Gov. Ellis Arnall, said that mem-
bers of the Kavalir Klub boasted
openly of the two crimes,
Publication of the charges in At-
lanta newspapers drew from Dr.
Samuel Green, a physician who is
Georgia grand dragon of the Klan,
a statement that they were "idiotic."
"Next they'll be accusing us of
starting the LaSalle Hotel fire in
Chicago," he said. "Or I would't
be surprised if they blame us for the
He said every klansman took an
oath to uphold the iaw and to help
prosecute any klansman found vio-
lating the law.
Duke said the crimes his secret
agents attributed to the Kavalier
Klub were the slaying of a Negro
taxi driver and the flogging by a
masked band of a 21-year-old Negro
The Kavalier Klub, Duke said, is
composed of specially chosen repre-
sentatives from all the Klan klaverns
or chapters in the Atlanta area. No
one outside the Kavalier group knows
who its members are.
Duke described the Kavalier Klub
as the strong arm or "meat squad"
of the Klan. Its members were cho-
sen, he said, for their brawn and
willingness to commit terroristic acts.
