Over the Wire

Eight Reds Executed

VICHY--Eight alleged Communists accused of terrorism and anti-German "manifestations" were executed in Paris today amid a new outbreak of sabotage in which 10 men wrecked several German army cars in a Paris garage and escaped.

Six of the alleged Communists, charged with terrorism, were sentenced to death by a new tribunal in Paris this afternoon and immediately executed.

They included Raymond Guyot, deputy for the Paris suburb of Villejulf and former General Secretary of the Communist Youth Movement.

The tribunal sentenced Gabriel Peri, political editor of the outlawed Communist newspaper Humanite, to life imprisonment and hard labor.
