Governor Rolph thereupon denied Mooney a pardon, just as every governor since Mooney was convicted has done. Mooney's statement continued: "If they believe their own state- ments they should consider it a patriotic duty to come forward and volunteer their services as special prosecutors. I challenge them to do so." Plans Unannounced Plans for Mooney's new prosecu- tion were still unannounced today. No responsible official had come forward to say what would be done. Ten persons were killed and two score injured in the bombing of the Preparedness parade.

Announce Awards New York, March Trustees of the John Simon Guggen- heim memorial foundation yester- day announced the award of 38 fel- lowships for 1933-34 to scholars and artists. Among recipients were Glenway Wescott, Ripon, Wis., novelist. "Every German Smiles" He made the statement as Jewish organizations throughout the world called for a fast and demonstrations today against what they termed the Hitler government's persecution of their Tace. Capt. Herman Goering, a Nazi member of the Hitler cabinet, said "every -German smiles" at re- ports of these demonstrations. Baron Von Neurath, in a private interview with the Associated Press, said Jewish "propagandists" abroad are giving "the impression that they actually halt at nothing, not even lies and calumny, ,to fight the present German government." The man who has conducted Ger- many's foreign affairs in three cabi- nets since last June classed the ter- rorist reports with the Belgian atro- city myths of the World war. j He admitted it was regrettable if certain excesses were committed by "isolated individuals" at the begin- ning of the national revolution which accompanied the rise of Hit- ler early this year. He said there were only a few such cases and then "only in comparatively mild form." Concerning Jewish demonstrations in foieign countries, he quoted a prominent Jewish banker as saying: "We reject all foreign interference. German Jews are he-men enough to help ourselves." Denies News Censorship The baron also denied foreign correspondents must submit their reports to a censor, but added that a few reports were held up because they "were either so untrue or so distorted that their publication in- dubitably had to be considered dan- gerous to the state." Meanwhile creation of fifteen spe- cial courts to handle political cases in Prussia was announced. There are estimated to be to Communists under arrest in various parts of the country.
