LOOT FOR GOERING

NEW YORK, Sat-: "La Libre." underground Belgian newspaper, confirms that Goering has snaffled van Eyck's painting of the "Ador- ation of the Lamb," one of the world's greatest art treasures.

The "Adoration" was some weeks ago reported to have been presented to Goering by the French Government, which had the painting in its safekeep- ing since the Nazi onslaught

against Belgium,

This rumor was received with scepticism, but investigation has proved it true.

Goering's loot belongs to Ghent! Cathedral. Central panels, which   came into the possession of the   King of Prussia, were restored to the Cathedral under the Versailles Treaty of 1919. "Adam and Eve" panels, which were removed in 1781, because Emperor Joseph II thought them "too liberal for a cathedral," were restored at the

same time.
