caping from an internment camp at Bowmanville, Ont., arriving here by

during the fugitive's admitted 36-
hour stopover.
Krug arrived in Detroit dirty, hun-
gry, ragged-like a "hunted animal,''
Mrs. Bertelmann said today, in the
most dramatic testimony of the sec-
ond day of the trial.
Uninterrupted save for once when
she broke and sobbed into a hand-
kerchief, she told her story. swiftly
in a high, nervous voice:
"The doorbell rang that morning
and when I answered there was a
ragged stranger asking if I had any
carpenter work he could do,
"He asked me if he could have a
drink. He said he was terribly thirsty.
I invited him in and he talked in
German and told me he had come
from the Bowmanville camp.
"You mean you are a German
prisoner? I asked.
"He said yes. I felt faint and
thought my knees would buckle,
"You shouldn't have come, I said-
you can't stay here.
"But he stood there looking at me,
dirty, scared and like a hunted an-

"Then I called Max Stephan by
telephone and told him to come over,
Something terrible was wrong; I said.
In about 10 minutes he arrived.
"Go out into the kitchen, I said.
There's 'a prisoner of war in there.
"Why, you're shaking, Max told
me. What's wrong with you?"
Mrs. Bertelmann, whose address
Krug obtained from a package she
sent to his camp, testified that Ste-
phan, after meeting the disheveled,
22-year-old fugitive, said to Krug:
"Why don't you give up and go
back to the camp?-you haven't got
a chance?" r
And Krug replied, according to
Mrs. Bertelmann, "I can't go back;
I've got to try to escape because of
the treatment of the prisoners in
Throughout his testimony Krug
insisted ithat he had two reasons for
trying to escape: to return to his
military duties in Germany and to
have information sent back to his
government relative to what he
called "bad conditions" in Canadian
internment camps.
