Fire Partially Demolishes
Local Rooming House Attic
Ann Arbor firemen whipped a blaze yesterday in the attic of a
rooming-house at 1208 Willard, near East Quadrangle.
A faulty electric circuit had started the fire. The house was empty
at 9:35 p.m. when three fire trucks arrived. A policeman had earlier
kicked in the front door to gain entrance.
Heat and smoke filled the attic, forcing firemen to run, choking,
down the stairs into the fresh Spring air outside.
Firemen Cool Attic Before Entering
They then leaned a ladder alongside the building, and cut a
thole in the roof. Inserting a hose

In the grey wooden building;
firemen were being driven back by
terrific heat and lung searing
smoke. A false ceiling hid the

Stored Auto Seat Burns
A fireman leaned out of the at-

ers below, then heaved a smould-
ering automobile seat from the
opening. It had been stored in
the part of the attic which had
just burned.
Shingles again began to jar
loose from the roof. Firemen were
in the attic now, smashing a hole
to allow another hose. Finally a
booted foot broke through, and
waved in the air.

through the hole, they put out
most of the fire. When it was cool
enough they entered and finished
it off..
A false ceiling in the attic made
it difficult at first to determine
the heart of the fire.
The back part of the attic was
completely destroyed, and the sec-
ond floor kitchen and living room
were a shambles.

came Thursday, completed the

"Ratification of the Paris trea-

the West, the professor said yes-
Prof. Reichenbach was in Ger-
many and France last summer.
"Young Germans aren't enthus-
iastic about rearmament," he said.
"I must have talked to about 200
of them. They accept the idea
of military duty as an obligation
of service to the country."
Prof. Reichenbach said he re-
ceived a letter yesterday from a
formerk"student, Lieutenant Lyle
E. York, now stationed in Ger-
many. Lt. York said Germans were
very enthusiastic about restora-
tion of full sovereignty.
In August of 1954 Prof. Reich-
enbach noted great disappoint-
ment among Germans at the
French attitude. French parlia-
ment had just rejected EDC.
"Germans have a real desire to
cooperate with the French," he
said. "Any acceptance of the new
Germany will be very gratefully
More realistic elements in
France, Prof. Reichenbach said,
must have been responsible for the
acceptance of rearmament.
"The French have accepted," he
added, "but not enthusiastically."
"It is hard for the Frenchman
to want a new 'German army,"
Prof. Reichenbach declared. "Even
an army reined in as the treaties
stipulate will be hard to take.
"In Paris last September, a
Frenchman told me it would take
20 years for France to forget what
the Gestapo did there during the
war," he said,
"But postponement of the Euro-
pean defense for ten years more
would be suicidal," Prof. Reichen-
bach concluded. 'That must be
what the French finally realized.
"France would fiddle while Eur-
ope burned."
