Rosenberg on Stand At Nuernberg, Tries To Talk Philosophy Kaltenbrunncr's Defense Jolted by Testimony Of Former Osweicim Boss By RICHARD KASISCHKE NUERNBERG, April Greying Alfred Rosenberg, offi- cial philosopher of Iho nazi par- ty, testified in the war crimes trial today thai he sludied in Mos- cow in 1918 and "what I experi- enced in Russia persuaded me to go to Germany and work there against any trend toward Bol- shevism." He launched almost immedi alely into philosophical discus sions which Lord Justice Si Geoffrey Lawrence, presidin judge of the international mill tary tribunal, sharply interrupt cd: "Confine yourself to the charge which is not that they (the nazis attempted the reconstruction o Germany but that they used thi i econslruclion lo attack race outside."

Heinrich Himmler and "GO rren who received detainees for death." The GO were sworn to secrecy, he testified. Hoess said Himmler visited Os- v-H-c-im in 1942 and "watched one pr.-'cessing from beginning to end."

LEMAY WASHINGTON, A'-ril 15, Economic Stabilizer Chester Bowles told senators today that if price controls stay in effect there is reasonable hope that "we will be out of the woods of extreme inflationary danger by the end of 1946." And if this happens, he testifi- ed at senate banking committee hearings, "controls can be lifted generally by June 30, 1047, in ail but the areas of acute shortage." _ Bowles opened the administra- tion drive for one-year extension of the office of price administra- tion which otherwise expires June 30. 1946.

Bowles told the senators: "Our people are watching to see whether or not their govern- ment really means business in holding down the cost of living. "Our businessmen are watching to see if a weakened price control act will further in- crease their costs of production. Farmers Watching "Our farmers are watching to see if we are to in- dulge in another postwar gamble with inflation such as caused farm foreclosures after World War I. "Our industrial work- ers are watching to see if the present balance between wages and prices is to be maintained or abandoned. "Our or more of white collar workers and people living on fixed incomes are watching to see if they are to be .squeezed again between raising rents and prices and relatively stable incomes. "Speculators by the thousands are watching for the first signs ot legislative weakness on a program which congress has steadfastly maintained against pressure for four weary, difficult war-torn years." Friends and foes of OPA awaited the signal for house de- bate in price control extension. Indians and U. S.

When they were gath- ered, military police called the roll and hustled them off to jail.
