An appeal has been died in supremo
court by the second cousins of Julius
Quandt, a Cheyenne county hermit
who became a recluse after his w'ife
died on the first anniversary of their
marriage, from a ruling of Judge
Tewell that German nieces and
nephews came first.
The appeal involves the unusual
question of whether the declaration
• of war with Germany, made by the
United States, abrogates the treaty
therefore existing with that country
in which it w-as ijyoveded that resi
dents of Germany might have a rea
sonable time in which to claim and
prove heirship. The cousins say it
did. The court 'also held that be
cause Germans were shut off from the
remainder of the world for about five
years that failure to claim the es
tates within that time does not rob
them of that right.
