The following brief article appeared in the March 2, 1947, issue of the Albuquerque Journal, datelined El Paso, TX:

   Families of 13 German scientists who are working at Fort  Bliss laboratories in connection with the V-2 rocket tests at White Sands Proving Ground [in New Mexico] arrived today from Germany.
   The scientists, armed with flowers, were waiting at the Southern Pacific station  as the train pulled in. Some of the smaller children wept as they embraced their fathers, from whom they had been separated for two years.
   Dr. Herbert Axseer, who met his wife and two children from Landeshut, Bavaria, said the families arrived in New York Monday. Dr. Herman Langer of Dresden was joined by his wife, three children and his father-in-law, Anatole Koulikof.
   The scientists, including Wernher von Braun, 34, rocket inventor, have been contributing their knowledge and experience to the Army ordnance department's experiments at White Sands more than a year.
