Edward Leroy van Roden, president judge of the orphans court of Delaware County, Pa, whose official report is under war department suppression, is charging in lectures and after din­ner speeches that shocking third degree methods were used to obtain confessions from those placed on trial at Dachau military courts. The courts were held where the Nazis had spread ter­ror among inmates or a concentration camp.
