I feel it my duty to state this fact, because we hardly have adequate means of publicity for this bawtle. . 0 6 0 OWe don e t want to argue any more about the fact that an e, go- tic attempt was and is being made in Berlin to remodel the political, social and economic structure one-sidedly according to. Marxist principles. This is a fact which does not fit very well with the "conscious will for the unity of Germany" which is announced loudly and often with defamation of other parties. DSO f, DE.P.

The following changes were made by the censor: ORIGINAL p_sr__E_ ..The strongest applause met his rejection of state capitalism, schematic socialism, class war and dictatorship, which today, after what we have gone through, are "reaction".. ..And I go a stop further: with- out the Marxist law of dictator- Ship. . .No establishment of Marxism. that -is the evident will express- ed in the recent elections - no class war, no dictatorship. It is painful when one hears the opinion of people who would like to be oriented one-sidedly to the W'eWest, who dream of a sort of U. S. of Europe including only the West of Germany. That is real separatism, born of the most primitive political attt?' udes and it is a dangerous coun- terfeiting of the great goal of the U *S. of Europe.

In Nuremberg an unwritten law was clearly expressed. The mean on the bench of the accused know that war had been banned by basic security treaties such as the Kellogg-Briand.pact.
