Vienna Center Army-Navy Review Will'

Captured by
Red Fores
Koenigsberg Falls
To Russian Armies
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Tuesday, April 10-Rus-
sian assault forces, swiftly overrun-
ning rapidly-collapsing enemy resist-
ance in Vienna late last night cap-
tured the 2,000-year-old inner heart
of the city, while Soviet forces in the
north conquered the long-beleaguer-
ed East Prussian capital of Koenigs-
The Soviet war bulletin, which was
delayed three hours beyond its usual
time, said early today that the center
of the Austrian capital had been cap-
tured in wild street fighting that has
engulfed more than three-quarters of
the entire city.
The fall of Vienna, second greatest
city of Adolf Hitler's greater Germany
and the Red Army's biggest potential
prize, appeared imminent.
Koenigsberg, ablaze and in ruins
from concentrated Russian artillery
and aerial bombardment, fell little
more than 24 hours after Marshal
Alexander M. Vasilevsky's Third
White Russian Army began storming
the city in an all-out assault Sun-
The battle of Vienna also was ap
proahing a climax. The Russians
swiftly overran street barricades and
overturned trolley cars, and Moscow
dispatches said the metropolis lacked
but eight to 12 miles of encirclement.
Koenigsberg, a city with a pre-war
population of 368,000, first was en-
circled Jan. 30. During the following
month, the Germans broke the en-
circlement, and the Russians left the
fortress city to starve while cleaning
up the rest of East Prussia.
Then Sunday, Vasilevsky's- troops
opened a tremendous assault after
Red Air Force planes flew 5,000 sor-
ties over the ancient fortress of the
Teutonic knights. Breaking through
an outer defense line, the Russians
swept into the center of the city and
captured the citadel.
Marines Gain
Half of Motoim
On Okinawa
GUAM, Tues., April 10-WA)-In-
creasingly heavy artillery, small arms
and machinegun fire held 24th Army
Corps troops to small gains in savage
fighting on southern Okinawa Mon-
day, but in the north Marines ad-
vanced 3,000 to 4,00 yards to gain
control of half of Motobu Peninsula.
Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz'
communique said the infantry was
held "to small local gains" by con-
tinued heavy opposition. The dough-
boys' have the twin goals of Mach-
inato Airdrome, only two miles south
of their present position, and Naha,
Okinawa's capital city, another two
miles further to the south on the
west coast. On the east, they are
driving toward Yonabaru town and
airfield on Nagagusuku Bay.
Supporting the doughboys were car-
rier pilots bombing, rocketing and
strafing the enemy strong points and
ships' heavy guns and the army's own
field artillery bmbarding enemy ar-
tillery and mortar positions.

Jurists Plan Peace
Secnrity Agency
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 9-Jurists
from 38 United Nations set to work
today. on the court structure which
many international lawyers contend
must evolve into a main peace-keep-
ing agency if international organiza-
tion is to work.
But as they sat down to their task
the delegates undertook no, such
grandiose assignment as setting up
immediately a world judiciary of that
power and responsibility.
Mechanics For Court
The job now is to draw up mech-
anics for a World Court, to be inte-
grated with the Dumbarton Oaks in-
ternational organization and to
handle disputes now justiciable under
existing international law.
But implications that they are
building important foundations for
the future came from Secretary of
State Stettinius in a welcoming ad-
dress. He said their work must give
effect to peace-loving people's deter-
mination that international differ-
ences shall be settled "by peaceful
methods and on a basis of justice."
San Francisco Conference
Their recommendations are to be
submitted to the United Nations Con-
ference opening in San Francisco Ap-
ril 25 to set up the organization plan-
ned at Dumbarton Oaks.

Nan' T roops
Surrounded in
Holland Push
Approach Gates of
Flaming Bremen
By The Associated Press
PARIS, Tuesday, April 10-Allied
armies struck yesterday for the Elbe
River-last big stream before Ber-
lin-fought into the outskirts of Han-
nover and to the gates of flaming
Bremen, and cut off 80,000 enemy
troops in Holland with a push within
20 miles of the north German coast.
Unexplained fires raged in the
north German cities of Hamburg,
Hannover and Brunswick, where no
Allied bombers had been, indicating
that the Germans were putting to
the torch cities which they appear
unable to defend in the path of the
Allied tide.
The enemy position was also criti-
cal on the center of the front, where
the U. S. Third and First Armies were
128 and 135 miles from Berlin. A
field dispatch said these two power-
ful- armies now were but 150 miles
from the Russians and able to coop-
erate tactically with the Red Armies.
As Lt. Gen. William H. Simpson's
Ninth Army pounded eastward, a
field dispatch said there was not the
slightest indication the Germans
could organize a good defense line
before Berlin.
The Fifth Armored Division cross-
ed the Weser and joined' the Berlin
sweepstakes. The 83rd Infantry in
the van was five miles northeast o(
Ganersheim and about 30 miles
southwest of Brunswick.
The Germans were trying to knock
out bridges .on the Rheine-Herne
Canal, over which the infantry sped
in entering Essen. Tanks and tank
destroyers crossed the canal to give
the infantry support.
The Seventh Armored Division of
the British Second Army captured
Riede, five miles southeast of Bremen,
and charged into the stout defenebs
before the city.

To Discuss Rushing

Officer Contributes to 'U'Library Go lection

More Than One
Solution for,
Anti- Semitism'
"There is more than one solution
to the problem of racial and social
prejudice, Prof. Theodore M. New-
comb of the sociology department
said in a discussion of "Some Psy-
chological Aspects of Anti-Semitism"
held last night at the Hillel Ftunda-
Proving with statistics that where
there is an anti-Semitic attitude
there is also some sort of frustration,
Prof. Newcomb stated that a frus-
trated person seeks an outlet, and
the direction of that outlet will fol-
low some organized influence.
To combat prejudices, the different
groups which felt that they are being
discriminated against should get to-
gether and make moves to combat
the discriminating force, such as was
done in the case of the passageof
the Ives-Quin bill in New York,
Prof. Newcomb suggested.
Another solution would be to at-
tack the fundamental institutions
which produce frustrations, and eith-
er cut off or conquer detrimental
propaganda, he concluded.

An American Army Officer, recent
graduate of the University C.A.T.
School and now in Germany, has
been sending crates of propaganda
information, books, posters, and
underground Belgian newspapers\ to
War Historian, F. Clever Bald at
the Clements Library.
One magazine received was the
"Der Undtermensch" (The Sub-Man)
which was a pictorial contrast be-
tween the German supermen and
the Slavic and Jewish people. The
pictures showed healthy, happy-look-

a copy of the London edition of Stars
and Stripes. Bald is trying to fol-
low in the daily news the localities
of which the library has pictures or
stories in their files. The Library
has also received pictures and stor-
ies of Hitler's western front moun-
tain hide-out, a log cabin with secret
and concealed entrances. The Allies
have also taken this.
In one of the crates there were
many Belgian anti-Nazi pamphlets
and Communist party leaflets. The
most noted of these was a copy of

widely printed in papers and maga-
zines in the United States, provoking
an editorial in Fortune Magazine.
The "Signal," a German publication,,
re-printed the picture, asserting that
the Frenchman would suffer more in
a Bolshevik-dominated France.
Striking Contrast
A striking contrast could be made
between the two types of books that
were included in several of the crates
of material sent the library by this
officer. One book, an English read-
er for a German girls' high school, de-

Books published since 1939 have
changed strikingly, if the ones re-
ceived by Clements Library are any
indication. Some just received were
titled "In God's Country" and "Ds
Land ohne Herz" (The Country
Without A Heart) both refering to
the United States. In the first are
pictures of many unusual and to oth-
ers, silly things existing in the United
States-pie eating and beer drinking
contests, novelty outdoor drive-in
restaurants and the like, along with
pictures of gangsters and our slum
