Prison Planned For Nazi War Criminals Any Executions After Nuernberg Trials To Be Carried Out In Secret BERLIN, Sept. 17, Ber- lin source said today a four- power controlled prison will be created in Berlin to house war criminals convicted in the Nuern- berg trials. This informant, who cannot be identified by name, also said the allied control council had decid- ed that any of the Nuernberg de- fendants sentenced to death would either be beheaded or hanged at Nuernberg. The sentences would be carried out in private, without even the press present, this source said, although stressing that the inter- national military tribunal at Nuernberg could alter these ar- rangements if it so desired. It is planned to take photo- photographs of the executions to prove beyond all doubt that substitutes were used to make sugar go farther and these sub- stitutes did not help the looks of canned foods. Needle Work Excellent However, the needle work is as good or better than at any past fair because women had more time to spend in that de- partment while the amount of food canned was not as large. A. C. Griffith, Route No. 1, Roff, was the only contestant in the individual farm d isplay de- partment and his display was out- Griffith displayed some of the best corn in the show in addi- tion to onions, honey both with and without comb, tomatoes, canned peaches, apple sauce, po- tatoes, peanuts, sweet cloverseed and lespcdeza that was 36'inches tnll before being trimmed to comply with regulations. Dry Weather .1 Handicap Every exhibit shows plenty of work nnd even more work this year than some previous years because of the dry weather. Corn exhibits are shorter than usual and the cars are not as large nor as well filled as. they they would have been if the weather had not been dry. The most outstanding of all ex- hibits at the County Fair is that of the Pleasant Hill club. The booth is well arranged, has a Bumper Corn Crop Racing Wilh Frost Mid-West Crop Maturing to Feed Farm Animals and Poultry By WILLIAM FERRIS CHICAGO, Sept. 17, corn is the mid-western prairie lands, the base upon which much of the nation's future food sup- alies will be turning green to brown in these late summer that the crop is maturing. With the tang of autumn al- in the air, the bumper corn crop, largest in the nation's history, is again in a race with time. This year it is late in ma- turing, arid to get a good quality crop experts said it was neces- sary for the grain to mature be- fore frosts. Maturing Fast "During Jhe last FIVE CENTS THE COPY.

Of the 20 enrolled in club work, there is 100 per cent par- ticipation in the fair. In addition to the booth, the club has hogs, cattle, sheep and poultry' enter- ed. The public is invited to attend the fair and visit the show barns in addition to the displays in the administration building. Three Boys Admil Six Robberies Involving Six burglaries that occurred during the past month were This in turn 'meant that the corn was drying out, that mois- ture was withdrawing from the kernels, leaving the indenture on top, and that the kernel was hardening. It should be harden- ed if corn is to escape .damage when the early frosts appear. A visible evidence of this pro- cess of nature was provided in the browning fields of the corn belt, from Ohio on the east across the prairies to Nebraska on the west. Vital To Food Supply It is upon corn, crop analysts pointed out, that much of Amer- ica's food economy rests. The grain is fed to farm animals anc poultry to produce. meat an dairy products.

Police agree that he did u good job because they couldn't find all the money. An extensive search was made and all but of the stolen was recovered, but the youngster just couldn't remember where he put the rest of the cash. After finding the money in the purse, the boy apparently decided to hide it because it was found scattered in an alley, hidden un- der rocks, and some was found in a paper sack. The youngster (like a real crim- inal) was taken to the county courthouse where he and his par- ents had a talk with County Judge .W. G. Long.

Young Mother And Baby Stranded Went From Texas To Philadelphia To Meet Gl Husband, Who Wasn't There PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 17 in Texas today tame lo the aid of a 17-year-old moth- er, stranded nftcr a trip lo visit her GI husband, who wasn't here when she finish- ed ner journey. Learning of the plight of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. William D. Smith of, Waco, Tex., wired sufficient funds for the girl and her baby, Ruth, to return home. Earlier, policewoman Janet Mc- Daniel had given this account of the incident: The girl, who identified her- self as Mrs'. Volma Smith of Waco, Te.v., reached Philadelphia yesterday with her six-weeks-old daughter, just as her funds ran put. She was to have met her husband, whom she named as Pvt. Leslie Smith, Philadelphia. The policewoman found the girl, disheveled from the long bus ride, sitting disconsolately ot a railroad station, the bnby in her arms. Miss Mc-Daniel discovered the baby was unclothed except for a blanket in which it was wrapped. A bag containing the infants clothes had been lost or stolen.

On the same day, Wallace declared his inten- tion of making more speeches oa foreign policy in the-future. Clayton, in response to a ques- tion today as to whether speeches such as the one given by Wallace in New York last Thursday night will be cleared by the depart- ment, said he assumes they will. Prudence Is Something Else He emphasized, how.cver, that he did not believe "Wallace or any other official necessarily would be bound by any IUB- goslcd. C'.'O'ton said he took it that Wnllucc has a right to make any kind of speech he wants to but added that whether a speech might be wise or prudent ano- ther question. In response to a direct ques- tion, Clayton said ho was assum- ing that the speech scheduled by- Wallace in Providence, R. I, one week from today will be cleared by the department. He was just assuming that, said, because of the situation which arose as the result of New York speech, in which Wal- lace criticized current American policy toward Russia, Clayton stressed that his as- sumption was not the direct re- sult of his conference yesterday with Mr. Truman. With President Only Briefly He was with the president only five minutes, Clayton said, and while the Wallace speech was mentioned, he would not KO so far as to say it was discussed. At one point, a reporter asked Clayton if there were any place where one could find out what American foreign policy is. Clayton replied that the ques- tioner could find out at the state department. He said he believed the main principles of foreign, policy could be found in various public utterances of President Truman and Secretary of State Byrnes. Wallace's oratory' lias present- ed the chief executive with the problem of permitting him to continue lo speak up on a tick- lish situation, as he has said will do, or possibly asking him to resign as secretary of com- nerce. Wallace declared his intention yesterday of keeping up his fight 'or changes in the conduct of this country's international affairs. That was before his appointment with the president was made. High among the considerations obviously involved in that across- .he-desk meeting will be the fact .hat the Congressional elections are only seven weeks off.
