Four Florida Saboteurs
Still Being Prosecuted;
Trial Is In Ninth Day
May Arrest Others
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, July 17 - Cases
against four of the eight alleged
Nazi saboteurs on trial for their lives
before a military commission were
completed Itoday, the ninth day of
the trial.
Still to be presented is the evidence
against tlie four remaining defend-
ants, and such defense as the eight
may offer.
Major General Frank R. McCoy,
President of the Commission, an-
nounged the prosecution had rested
its .case against the four defendants
who landed on Long Island, N. Y.,
from a submarine. The others, also
brought to the coast on a U-boat,
landed in Florida.
Much Time Required
The time required to present the
prosecution's evidence against only
four of the defendants made it clear
that the trial would last much longer
than had been generally anticipated.
Slowness of the proceedings ap-
parently resulted from the time-con-
suming reading of many lengthy doc-
uments. General McCoy said the
reading of one long document, started
yesterday, was completed this morn-
ing. One of the FBI witnesses was
recalled by the defense counsel for
additional cross-examination.
Four Cases Finished
The four against whom the prose-
cutibn has completed its case are
George John Dasch, Ernest - Peter
Burger, Heinrich Harm Heinck and
Richard Quirin. The other defend-,
ants are Edward John Kerling, Her-
bert Haupt, Hermann Neubauer, and
Werner Thiel.
They are accused of being enemies
of the United States, acting on be-,
half of Germany, and of unlawfully
entering this country for the pur-
pose of committing sabotage, espion-
age and other hostile acts in viola-
tion of the laws and articles of war,

By The Associated Press
INTERLOCHEN, July 17 .- Stu-
dents at the National Music Camp
appealed today to President Roose-
velt to "take some action which will
allow us to continue orchestra con-
certs barred from the air under an
edict of James C. Petrillo, musician's
union head." .
An invitation ; was drafted by a
student committee at the same time,
asking Petrillo to come to the camp
and be convinced himself that the
broadcasts should be permitted.
Petrillo had ordered the programs
Rev. Marley,
Shepard Call
Charges Lies
(Continued from Page 1)
"It is true that I wanted Browder out
of jail, but it was because his impris-
onment was a flagrant violation of
civil rights, not because he was a
Communist. ,
"I have never been a member of
the Communist party nor have I ever
approved of anything simply because
it wasbacked by that party."
Marley To Describe Smith
Reverend Marley will describe
Smith's activities since his associa-
tion with Huey Long in a sermon on
"Gerald Smith and His Millions" to-
morrow in the Unitarian Church. '
Professor Shepard also said that
his desire to see Browder released
had been aroused "by a violation of
civil rights, not because Browder is
a -Communist.
"I have never followed the Com-
munist party simply because it was
the Communist party," he asserted.
"I have at all times been interested
in issues, and have not hesitated, nor
will I hesitate to make a statement
because it is one which the Com-
munists favor or dislike.
"Two years ago I was in favo of
aid to England to stop Hitler. At
that time the Communists were
preaching an isolationist doctrine.
Petition Is Cause
"Smith made those accusations be-
cause I signed a petition and because
Reverend Marley spoke at a meeting
of the Civil Rights Federation in De-
troit condemning Smith, Coughlin,
the Ku Klux Klan and the National
Workers' League for holding up the
war effort.
"It was an anti-fifth column peti-
tion, against Smith's old alliance
with the Bund and his pre-war pro-
Hitler policies. He hasn't changed
much. .
"Smith is still an obstructionist,
still hindering the war effort by do-
ing things like promising tires to the

halted because the American Fed-
eration of Musicians has a contract
with the National Broadcasting
Company forbidding performances
by amateurs.
Vandenberg Demands Decision
In Washington Senator Arthur H.
Vandenberg (Rep.-Mich.) told the
Senate he was demanding an inves-
tigation of the case. He said he had
asked Chairman James L. Fly of the
Federal Communications Commis-
sion to conduct an inquiry to deter-
mine how the "fundamental right of
these amateurs" to perform was de-
nied them.
In their apeal to the President, the
students wrote:
"Our broadcasts have always been
one of the highlights of our study
here. They have been an inspiration
to music students all over the United
States as well as to ;ourselves. Won't
you take some action that will en-
able us to continue?"
Reinald Werrenrath, prominent
baritone here for a guest appearance
in the Interlochen bowl, promised
yesterday to make a report to Fred
W. Birnbach, union secretary, in New
Cannot Understand Action
Werrenrath, a leading member of
the musician's union, declared that
he was' "at a loss to understand"
Petrillo's action.
"I am sure he (Petrillo) will
change his opinion," Werrenrath
said, "because musical education of
the kind conducted at the National
Music Camp is something America
cannot and should not do without."
The baritone said he did not un-
derstand why, Petrillo "changed his
mind after the broadcasts had been
given for 12 years without objection."

From Associated Press Summaries
There are two hot teams in the
American League right now and be-7
hind each is the individual drive
and power of one man.
There is almost no one who would
dispute Chet Laabs' right to be
classed as the No. 1 reason for thea
recent and amazing climb of the St.
Louis Browns. At least no one would
deny that his two homers yesterdayj
which clinched a doubleheader for
the Browns from the Philadelphia
Athletics were not mighty blows
struck for the cause of the American
League underdog, an underdog which,
now looks back on its former mates
from a comfortable first division
The berth is still precarious, 1qut
as long as Luke Sewell, and the rest
of the boys hang on, they will be
saying prayers every night to 'the
lucky bat of the broadchested Tiger
castoff who set off their blazing
Less certainly the main factor in
the Yanks return to the ways of
world champions is the pllace of Red
Rolfe. Yet it might seem that the
carrot - thatched, underpublicized
third baseman deserves more than
his share of the praise for the Mc-
Carthymen's comeback.
Certainly the Yankee pitchers have
been great but they might not have
had such comfortable margins to
coast on if it were not for the steady
fielding and sensational hitting of
Mr. Rolfe.
What puts the Frank Merriwell
touch to the story of Richard Rolfe
is the fact that he got out of a sick-
bed in which he has rested off and
on for two years to lead the Bronx
Bombers to victory.
This chief claim to the title "spark
of the Yankees" is his an'd their
record since he resumed play Sunday.
They have won every ball game and
increased their lead by four games,
while lie has hit three homers and
has driven hfome a good share of
the runs.
