THE ADA EVENING NEWS BUY MORE WAR BONDS Allies Rest Case Against Nazi Leaders After More Than Three Months Hearings; Defense Likely to Start Monday By DANIEL DE LUCE Germany, Feb. —The allied prosecution rested its case against 22 top ranking nazi war leaders late to-day after more than three months of hearings before the international military tribunal. Arguments on legal aspects of the attempt to prosecute six nazi organizations as criminal groups are scheduled for tomorrow. The defense is likely to start Monday. One Document Withdrawn Just before closing of the prosecution case, U. S. deputy Prosecutor Thomas Dodd obtained the court s permission to withdraw from the trial record a document introduced as evidence more than a month ago. Dodd said a further examination of this document, a letter orally attributed to defendant Alfred Rosenberg which spoke in glowing terms of the “anti-Christian work of the Hitler, youth organization, had indicated “grave questions as to its authenticity.’* Ribbentrop Plea Denied _ The tribunal denied Joachim von Ribbentrop’s plea that Winston Churchill, Edouard Daladier and other pre-war allied leaders be summoned as defense witnesses. The tribunal rejected 22 names of a list of 38 submitted by the former German foreign minister and also trimmed sharply the lists submitted by Defendants Hermann^ Goering and Field Marshal \\ llhelm Keitel. The tribunal s action led prosecution sources to predict the en-, ® defense case could be completed within seven weeks. In rejecting Ribbentrop’s request for Churchill and other witnesses from Britain and r ranee, the tribunal said “it appears that their testimony would levant or cumulative.” Ribbentrop’s lawyer had ar-JE**? ‘h«t Churchill uttered threats at the German embassy y LoPdoo that England might ?.e,tr?y the Reich and that these threats had frightened Adolf Hitler into committing the aggres-^nd the charges on Which the present trial is based.

Houston Workers Bad On Their Jobs Councilman Start Study of Grievances HOUSTON, Tex., Feb. 27.—(/P) -—Some i OO city service workers returned to their jobs today and the mayor and councilmen began a study of their grievances. The week-old strike ended yesterday after 5,000 industrial and other workers marched on the city hall in support of the city employes.    J Mayor Otis Massey told D. W.

The original price of a tag might have been $25.50, but after Saturday the cost will be $50.50 for the same tag. Thornton also reminds that a double price on a tag for a heavy truck will run into high figures.

An open meeting therefore is to be held Tuesday night, March 5 at the Aldridge hotel, for explanation of the ordinance proposal submitted for March 19 and Pow a board of freeholders would, if the move is approved by the voters, be elected in April and function as a city charter restudy body.

OWEN WASHINGTON, Feb. 27.—(ZP) —Confusing accounts today veiled the results of a • showdown meeting between National Commander John Stelle of the American Legion and "Gen. Omar Bradley. The two-hour closed door session in Bradley's office yesterday climaxed Stelle’s month-old charges of inefficient operation of the Veterans Administration under Bradley. After the meeting the public was given: A not-too-definite joint statement. A speech by Stelle. Bradley’s recording of the conference. (Nobody could understand it.) A set of administration answers sporter*! questions. What May Come To Pam The joint statement held forth i:nese possibilities important to t housands of veterans: I.

Taking note of President Truman s recent news conference comments that the proposal would not be practical, Martin asserted: “To those who say this proposal is impractical, I say you will not know how practical it is until you try it and the least it can do is to test the good faith of the world powers.” Pleading with the committee not to consider his proposal as “a republican suggestion,” Martin asked the members instead to t ink of it as “the one first step rn a series of steps which must be taken by the American people ii we are to achieve the peace.”  -—a—--- Cranberries were first called cranberries, because the fruit is borne on curved sticks resem-blind the neck of a crane. back.” .
