Saboteurs Trial Judge At Adirondack Camp

Major General Frank R. McCoy, president of the military trial panel which recently tried and sentenced eight Nazi saboteurs who were landed on the Atlantic coast by a German submarine less than two months ago, is the guest of Mrs. James Rockwell Sheffield of New York at the latter's Camp Iroquois on the Upper Saranac Lake at Saranac Inn. He is accompanied by Mrs. McCoy.

Opening of the famous trial was featured by refusal of General McCoy to give information concerning it to Elmer Davis, director of the Office of War Information, the latter’s appeal to President Roosevelt and a compromise under which General McCoy finally issued statements concerning progress of the trial which have been declared masterpieces of brevity. He and Mrs. McCoy expect to pass some time as guests of Mrs. Sheffield, who is the widow of the former United States Ambassador to Mexico.
