tPo ices o[ xperience
Subsidiary
REVIIEW BOARDS
For better administration of Law 8,
a system of subsidiary Review Boards
under each Kreis Review Board in
North Wiirttemberg-Baden is being
organized to expedite the hearing of
appeals. In addition, every large enter-
prise (100 employees) is encouraged
to set up -a denazification committee,
with equal representation of employers
and employees, to advise on the re-
moval of nazis and recommend ap-
proval or disapproval of appeals.
It is believed that these committees
will assume an increasing responsibi-
lity for the removal lof nazis, and will,
to some extent, counteract the ten-
dency on the part of the Germans con-
cerned with denazification to consider
that their chief function is the rein-
statement of persons removed.
COMMUNITY FINED FOR
INTERFERING WITH OFFICIALS
The fining of a community, through
its Birgermeister, on a charge of in-
terfering with public officials in the
course of their business took place in
Landesbezirk Baden last week.
A Summary Military Court, in the
first -ca-se 'of its kind in that area,,
meted 'out a fine of RM 6,000 to the
community   of  Gerichstetten  (L K
Buchen).
Employees of the Landrat's office
were set upon by a substantial num-
her of townspeople when the workers,}
acting under Military Government di-
rection, sought to take possession of a
motorcycle. The Burgermeister of
Gerichtstetten failed to exert his in-
fluence to suppress the resentment of
the community.
FIELD FOOD OFFICES BRIEFED
IN DUTIES AND POWERS
A team of German officials fromthe
Landesernahrungsamt   has    begun
touring throughout LB Baden to in-
struct all of the food offices in their
duties and powers.
Such efforts should enable the food
offices to operate efficiently by the
time Kreis food and agriculture of-
ficers are withdrawn.
A handbook outlining the obligations
and procedure of operation for the
2,000 Farm Inspection Committee
members in the Landesbezirk is being
published.
OVERCOME LUMBER SHORTAGE
A pre-fabricated house construction
firm in Wiesbaden has partially over-
come the lumber shortage by deve-
loping a house siding made of blocks
of cinders and cement.
Such houses may be of value in
cities like Hanau, where the destruc-
tion was so great that new dwellings,
rather than repairs, are a necessity.
