DENAZIFICATION t) Lawyers to whom the criteria mentioned in Category "C" ol Appendix 1 of Section 1 of the Technical Manual for Legal and Prison Officers (2nd edition) apply. u) Officials of important industrial, commercial, agricultural and financial institutions having the titles of "Generaldirektor", "Direktor", "PrAsident", "Vize-PrAsident", "Geschiftsdfuhrer", "Betriebsfiirer", "Betriebsleiter", "Betriebsobmann", "Bilro- chef", or their equivalents; policy-making technical personnel such as "Chefmgenieur", "Oberingenieur", "Betriebsingenieur", etc.; all members of the "Vorstand", and "Aufsichtsrat"; all persons with the power to hire and dismniss employees. v) Near relatives of prominent Nazis should not be employed. 13. Principles guiding discretion in removing and excluding individuals The guiding principle in all these cases must be whether the person under examination has or has not been more than a nom- inal participant in the activities of the Nazi Party, in the light of the definition in paragraph 2 of this directive. In cases of doubt persons will not be employed or left in occupation of their office if others are available who are politically more reliable but administratively somewhat less suitable. Such persons will, where- ever possible, be given only posts of minor responsibility until they have proved themselves to be politically reliable. It is essential that the head executive German officials at the levels of Provihz, Regierungsbezirk and Kreis should be confirmed anti- Nazis even if this entails the employment of persons less well qualified to discharge their administrative duties.
