POISONING STORY

HOW HITLER MET HIS DEATH

LONDON, July 25.

Hitler was deliberately poisoned by Himmler or his accomplice, according to statements of highlyplaced persons, says the Daily Express. One is Count Bernadotte, vice-president of the Swedish Red Cross, who was Himmler's first peace agent. The other is Walter Schellenberg, Himmler's right-hand man, who has been brought to London for questioning.

Count Bernadotte's story, says the Daily Express, is that Himmler, early in April, was thinking of poisoning Hitler with medicine prepared by Professor Max Decrinis, of Cologne University. Count Bernadotte recalls that Himmler had predicted the probable date of the death of Hitler, who was said at the time to be seriously ill. Himmler's ambition was to seize power in. Germany, and Schellenberg was anxious to help his master, Himmi ler. According to Schellenberg, Decrinis had pronounced Hitler to be a victim of Parkinson's disease (shaking paralysis). Schellenberg says Hitler died on April 27 and he is satisfied that "medicine" caused his death, although he does not know who gave it.
