To be exact, two aeroplanes and four deserters figured in the thrilling Nicolai adventure. The professors accomplices, two of whom I haer entertained at dinner -t thhn St. Tomas Cafe in Copenhagen were unailing noncoms in the Gertmast army, attached to the aviatiotn station at Neii Ruppin, just norlttif Berlin, from wihere the spe-tacular flight to neutral territory started. The first time I met Dr. Nicolai and his companions was in the dining room of the Park Hotel in Copenhagen. They were having breakfait~. Dr. Nicolai was crackc ing his boiled egg when I intro duced myself as the representative of an American publishing house which was aioUes to have hint w-rite a book~ on the crils of N~rman-palitarisni.. The professor adjusted his mntocle and eyed me iketic-ally. toyIng in fluent English:. "Very sorry. sir, but I am not ready to talk yet. You may cal onmemlater.' No argumient swayed him. When I called again a few days later he had disappeared. But I recovered his trail. Flight Is Dramatic. The.flight of the four Germans from Neu Ruppin was undertaken iaythe dark of night. 'Dr. Nicolal'e accomplices were Semts. Adam, Haase and Silberhorn. Adam dod Silberhorn were aviators and had access to the hangars at Neu Ruppin. Haase yas an aeroplane mechanic. All were as tired as the professor of the war. With all-the c-adrage they could muster Adam and Silberborn rolled two aeroplanes out of the hangar at 2 o'clock in the morning.

The sentries suspected nothing. Nocturnal scouting expeditions were customary. The following morning Dr. liicolai and Silberhorn landed a few stiles from iopenhgen. They had laken civilian clothes with them, and when the Danish pollee anditilitary reachedethe aeropl-ane its occupatits were in mufti. This saved them from internment in Denmark.

Adam, with kil the pluck of a dauntless Amerean. decidedito take thedbiggest chance of hi-i life by landing-on the German Island of Fehmarn, in the midst-of a large garrison. and fill his depleted gasoline tank. Everybody from the commandant sown thought we were on a scouting expedition. Adam told me when he and Stiberhorn were y dinner guests. Denmark Aids-Them. Adam and Haase landed on the island of Langelanti a few hours after their friends had reached Copenhagen. I happen to know, through some surcec cannotreveal, that the t:Erman government demnanded that the four deserters be aurreqdered. But the Danish foreign oflier, whose personnel harbor no sympathy for the German caus. pointed is a treaiy twith Germany providing that deserters may be treated as noncombatants and hence he given full liberty in Dew mtark. I wasutter that story and determined to get it. hasing failed in lily first attempt I nosed about topenhagen until I discovered where Attam and Silberhorn were rooming. I called on them and invited them to take dinner with 5me at the St. Thomas. "I suppose you were puzzled that Dr. Nicolai refused to talk to you.. remarked Silberhorn. "Wissen sle warum?"
