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.  —Th e alli ed 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 One Document Withdrawn Just before closing of the prosecution case, U. S. deputy Prosecutor Thomas Dodd obtained the court s permission to withdraw from the trial record a document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.

First Vote Just 'Starter*  A *yes* vote on March 19 thus would indicate that most of the voters favor a re-study of the city charter.

After that date, warns A. K. Thornton tag agent, all motor vehicle license tags will cost twice the 1946 prices that applied before any penalty started.  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.

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. Moving of long-term hospital ntients to outlying institutions to make more central hospital }eds available for emergencies. This conceivably might result in VA taking over more hospitals than now planned.  .^•Granting of temporary disability ratings by doctors in the field to veterans holding discharges on which a disability is noted. this would be done pending final landling of disability claims.

Two hours I a t e r, however, Stelle was telling a legion group his version of other conference results—no contract hospitals for veterans except for emergencies; use of all available army and navy hospitals; more decentralization of the Veterans Administration, and help for states in supervising training of veterans on the job.  Hearing of S t e ll e* a speech. Bradley s office hustled forth a steel wire recording of the full conference for benefit of reporters who had been barred from pi 0  ^ ss * on .  on  L Bradley’s order. Played back, this sounded like little more than two men coughing down a rain barrel in a hail storm. (Enough words were distinguishable at the start to make clear that the legion delegation knew the recording was bein* I made.)     1   VA Outlines Its Side  finally an annymous spokesman came up with these Veterans Administration answers to newsmen’s questions based on Stelle’s statements:  There has been no modification ox the plan for contracting with private hospitals for veterans with war-caused ailments. It is an emergency measure.  There is no change in the inten-«ver army and  navy hospitals.  “We have not as a result of this conference agreed to make more beds^available than we had plan-  The states will get as much help as the law permits in supervising veterans training on the job.  The decentralization plan has called right along for moving the rapidly as possible.  » J jL w i iere  the dispute stands today, 27 days after Stelle wrote an members of congress demand-mg an investigation of what he 2? ut  a  'tragic breakdown” in the Veterans Administration under Bradley.  *  Russia Reported Landing More Two Groat, Rival I roops In Dairen, Port Arthur  Indicate Intention ta Remoin in Manchuria Indefinitely;  Reporter Finds Mukden Stripped of Factory Equipment  SHANGHAI, Feb. 27.—(AP)—High Chinese military circles in Chinhsien reported today that Russia is landing additional thousands of troops in Dairen and Port Arthur, indicating an intention to remain in Manchuria indefinitely!

'Phantom' German Arms Maker (aught  Americons Unmask Armament Maker More Powerful Even, Than Krupp  By RICHARD 0*REAGAN   0 _ FR ANKFURT, Germany, Feb.  ^ A phantom German armament maker described by an America^ investigator, as the greatest single power behind the nazi war machine”—a behind the  *° rce  t  far     than  Krupp—has been caught by Am-* r ^ n  occupation authorities.  whose fabulous $400,000,000 secret industrial em-pire previously was whispered by a few, was identified by auth irides as Friedrich Flick, 62, a steel and coal producer whose name was virtually unknown abroad or among millions of Germans.  Full details of the dealings which made Flick one of the wealthiest men in nazi Germany still are under investigation by a treasury and war department de-cartelization team headed by Jos!f Marcun Jr., (166 E. 22nd) New York.  “We consider Flick a greater than Krupp for he grew with the nazi regime and seized more personal economic power than Krupp ever held,” Marcun   sa  i j  e a ^ ded  that his team would recommend the indictment of Flick as a war criminal at the second war crimes trial.   * -  Read the Ada News Want Ads.  international ban on conscription before congress votes on universal military training for this country.

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 tr y  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.”  .
