Further light on the murder of Walter Rathenau, late German Jewish statesman who was murdered while he was Minister of Foreign Affairs, was shed at a meeting of a committee of the Prussian Diet yesterday.

The committee cross-examined Herr Tschauer, a student who confessed to being one of the accomplices in the murder of Rathenau. He told the Committee that the terroristic organization, Consul, which was responsible for the murder, has decided to exterminate all those who have any knowledge of the Rathenau murder.
