Eichmann Trial to Start on March 15; Postponed for Nine Days

The trial of Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi war criminal who directed the mass killing of 6,000,000 Jews in Europe during the Second World War, will be postponed only for nine days beyond the March 6 scheduled date, and not several weeks, as had been indicated earlier this week. According to a semi-official announcement tonight, the trial is now scheduled to begin on March 15. (See page 2 for earlier news on Eichmann trial.)
