Rabel Suggests Establishment
Of International Organization

Because of the bitter contrasts and
extreme differences between the
countries of Europe some inter-state
organization must be set up after
the war to overcome these difficulties,
Dr. Ernst Rabel, European jurist now

a melting-pot for the nationalities
and races of the world," Dr. Rabel de-

melt the conflicts of the European na-
Dr. Rabel asserted that the United
States has a great mission to perform
in the post-war world. We must "bear
the torch" to the peoples of Europe
he said.
"Europe has worked very hard for
progress," Dr. Rabel said, "and has
been frustrated in her quest. However
they will continue, but they need in-
ternational assistance."
A member ad hoc of the World
Court at the Hague from 1925 to
1928, Dr. Rabel is now working at the
University on a book dealing with the
law of conflicts. He started his re-
search here two years ago under the
auspices of the American Law Insti-
tute. For a year now Dr. Rabel has
been working under the auspices of
the University and has his office in
the Law Quadrangle.
Dr. Rabel founded the Institute for
Foreign and International Private
Law in Berlin and was for eleven
years director of the organization.
Prof. Rheinstein and Prof. Kessler
now on the faculty of the University
of Chicago assisted Dr. Rabel in his
work at the Institute.
Formerly a member of different
European courts and also a member
of various mixed arbitral tribunals,
Dr. Rabel has also held professorships
at many of the universities of Europe.
He has taught at Basel, Switzerland,
Kiel, Gottrogen, Munich and Berlin.
Dr. Rabel said that at many times
Ann Arbor reminder him of Munich
which he explained was one of the
most pleasant cities in which he was
located. "The sky was always blue
in Munich," Dr. Rabel said looking
out of the window, "but in Berlin it
was always misty and grey."
A wallet containing $50 was lost

Associated Press Correspondent
April 9. (Friday)-In a statement
commemorating the first anniversary
of the surrender of American and Fib
ipino forces on Bataan Peninsula,
Gen. Douglas MacArthur said today:
"A year ago today the dimming
light of Bataan's forlorn hope flut-
tered and died. Its prayers by that
time, and it prayed as well as fought,
were reduced to a simple formula
rendered by hungry men through
cracked and parching lips: 'Give us
this day our daily bread.' The light
failed. Bataan starved into collapse.
"Our flag lies crumpled, its proud
opinions spat upon in the gutter; the
wrecks of what were once our men
and women groan and sweat in pris-
on toil; our faithful Filipino wards,
16,000,000 souls, gasp in the slavery
of a conquering soldiery devoid of
those ideals of chivalry which have
so dignified many armies.
"I was the leader of that lost cause,
and from the bottom, of aseared and
stricken heart I pray that a merciful
God may not delay too long their re-
demption, that the day of salvation
be not so far removed that they per-
ish, that it be not again too late."
An intercepted message from
Lieut.-Gen. Jonathan Wainwright to


Twin Girls Studying Ordnance
Courses Confuse Instructors


Among the 60 women who arr'ived
in Ann Arbor three weeks agofor a4
12-week Ordnance Course for Engi-
neering Aides are Dorothy and Jane
Frear, twins from Pittsburgh, Pa.
Small, blonde and attractive, the
sisters look very much alike and are
causing their professors a great deal
of confusion.
Before the outbreak of the war
Dorothy and Jane were both - study-
ing costume economics at Carnegie
Tech. Then came Pearl Harbor and
they abandoned their needles and
paint brushes and enrolled in a war
training -course.
After the course was finished they
both got jobs at the Pittsburg Ord-
nance Department. It was this de-
partment which sent the girls here
for'further training.
"The work is very interesting,"

sic critic for various Chicago news-
Numbers by Randall Thompson and

Dorothy said, "although it is cer-
tainly very different from anything
I had done before the war."
The girls have classes in the En-
gine School where they have 48
hours of classwork a week. They are
studying such things as machine
processing, mathematics and, engi-,
neering drawing.
After 12 weeks the girls will all be
sent to engineering departments of
various arsenals to help in design,
drafting and production.
"We don't intend to do this sort of
work permanently but just want to
help out for the 'duration,' " Jane
said, speaking for them both.
When asked how she liked Ann
Arbor she remakked, "It's very beau-
tiful-especially after Pittsburgh."

Bataan after three bitter, heroic
Twenty-four hours later MacArthur
penciled on a sheet of ruled note-
paper his tribute to the Bataan force
which "went out as it would have
wished, fighting to the end of its
flickering and forlorn hope. Nothing
became it more than its last hour of
trial and agony."
Probably not until the end of the
war will it be known for how many
of 36,000 soldiers, manles, sailors and
airmen on Bataan the General's trib-
ute was an epitaph. Some of the ba-
taan defenders made their way to
Corregidor, only to be killed or cap-
tured when that last great Philippine
stronghold was overwhelmed.
Very few slipped through the Jap-
anese lines to the mainland and made
their way to Australia, for those lines
were manned by nearly 200,000 Jap-
When MacArthur reached Australia
from the Philippines to assume com-
mand of United Nations forces in the
Southwest Pacific he declared: "I
shall return."
