Charging that the German peo-
ple are still "infected with egoism,"
a German civilian has asked that
American occupation troops re-
mAin for at least a generation.
Hermann H. Rocke, former Ber-
lin school teacher, believes that
"the young German generation
with master-race experiences from
the battlefields of Europe will
never be able to learn democracy"
without help from American sol-

Jr., literary college junior, Rocke
said that with educational help
from America, "the new German
youth, tutored by American GI's,

who are friendly toward .democ-
racy will not live long enough to
extinguish the master-race philos-

a development and deployment of
democratic ideas among people so
utterly infected with egoism that
they expect help and assistance
only from their lenient victors, in-
stead of first doing their utmost to
help their fellow citizens?" he asks.
Rocke said that as a military

had "ample opportunity to look
behind the curtains of the stage
where a new democratic Germany
is supposed to originate from the
rotten remains of a broken mast-
But he finds "only one ray of
sunlight in the dark jungle of
German political life."
That is the results of elections
in the Russian zone of occupation,
especially Berlin, which he says
"shows a clear distancing from the
totalitarian, one-party system of
"This trend is even stronger in
the three other zones of occupa-
tion where the Social Democrats,
Liberals and Christian Liberals
have gained an overwhelming
majority," he asserts.
