EDITORS NOTE This is the seventh oi a series of eight art icles telling in what American institutions and customs foreign chiefly arc interested By TOM WILHBLM BERLIN American dol lar has become a star performer on Germanys news stage Because of their own experiences with inflation Germans read eager ly of the United States monetary moves and they are most interested in the inflationary aspects Save for stories of catastrophes little foreign news is printed in Germany but articles on American money manipulation are given a good deal of attention Since the dollar was pushed off the gold standard German news editors have altered their appella tion for America It used to be the land of boundless possibilities Now it is the former land of bound less possibilities Can Clamber Back Some wrJtiers caution Germans to withhold judgement of the Roosevelt monetary policy declaring that Americas supply of gold is such as to peimit her to clamber back aboard the gold standard wagon over night at a devalued dollar price Political writers make capital out of the inflation theories in America The Nachtausgabe wrote At presentit is impossible to forecast where the American ex periment will end The German peo ple can be thankful that the gov ernment under the leadership of Chancellor Adolf Hitler in the fight against unemployment stay away from all money experiments The way chosen

circles suggests that the American experiments will have afarreaching effect on world markets and cautions against panicky reports such as fill a part of the Parisian press Economic writers in Der Deutsche see the fluctuating dollar as a fight to the end with Wall Street inter ests who through the Federal Re serve bank system have been able practically to control American gold movements Naturally President Roosevelt is Americas chief news personality so far as Germany is concerned Run a close second is Senator William BoraTi whose activities are followed closely here because his strictures against the Versailles treacly include criticisms of the Pol ish Corridor scheme Interested In Liquor Jvews Americas liquor situation too lias attracted attention with Ger man vintners and

against Lieut Gov NelsG Kraschel His ruling came at the end of arguments presented by opposing attorneys featured by an angry ex change between government counsel and John Hughes chief defense law yer The court interrupted the govern ments arguments being presented by Assistant District Attorney Frank L Wilson to challenge the prosecutions statement that the in dictment waa properly drawn No Pecuniary Loss The court indicated that the charge of conspiracy to defraud by obstructing the functions of the public works administration did not imply pecuniary loss to thegov ernment and that further argu ment concerning the overt acts cited in the indictment should be made assistant district ittOrHeyfafew tHe courts attention to a charge of alleged forgery cited in the indictment and Judge Dewey held that section In dictable and overruled the demur rer The forgery charge was returned by a federal grand jury at Ottumwa in connection with the alleged forg ing of an application for a loan from the Public Works Administra tion by the city of Ottumwa for a viaduct project Application Altered The indictment alleges that the application was altered to request only the grant and that the lieuten ant governor and Carleton D Beli Des Moincs Investment banker were responsible for the alteration without tho consent of Ottumwa officials The charge is the basis for a separate Indictment against Beh The courts ruling followed pre sentation of lengthy arguments by the defeise and a strong plea to dismiss the indictment Hughes presented numerous doc uments and bulletins of the pubMc works administration in support of his contention that Kraschels al leged actions in urging county and city officials to seek loans locally rather than from the PWA were not illegal Lawyers Jn The clash between opposing law yers came as Hughes finished quot ing from a speech made in Chicago Sept 23 1933 by Secretary Ickes which Hughes said had not been presented to the grand jury at Ottumwa Fountain challenged the state ment and demanded an apology from Hughes for the defense attor neys presumption to know what testimony had been given to the In vestigating body How do you know that Foun tain interrupted Mr Hughes owes us all an apology The speech was being cited by Hughes as an example that the PWA itself encouraged political sub divisions to finance the 70 per cent Joans for projects locally rather than Reeking both loans and grants from the federal government No Immediate Answer Hughes did not answer Fountain immediately and Frank F Wilson also assistant district attorney con tinued the Interrogation How do you know what was presented before the grand jury at Ottumwa Wilson demanded Hughes declined to answer and Judge Dewny Interrupted I think you should apologize Mr Hughes to the government Then the court added Perhaps Mr Hughes has been taiklng to some of the grand jurors Hughes denied this and finally ad mitted that his statement had prob ably been too hasty and offered an apology to the court and the gov ernment attorneys withdrawing his previous statement Admits Error Perhaps I said something in my enthusiasm which I did not wholly mean he
