Capture Hill 362
The score of enemy opposition on
the right flank was wiped out Wed-
nesday by the Third Marine Division's
capture of another hill 362. This
one, the third of that height to be

Below this position the Fourth Ma-

Advances of about 500 yards were
scored Wednesday in the center of

Enemy Suicide Charge
A. P. war correspondent Morrie
Landsberg reported that a tank bat-
talion fighting with the Third Divi-
sion repelled a suicidal charge made
against armored vehicles by Japanese
carrying long poles on which explo-
sives were mounted. Not a single
tank was damaged but many enemy
soldiers were killed.
Vice-Adm. Richard K. Turner, over-
all amphibious commander, visited
the Volcanic Island Thursday, in-
spected its shattered defenses, took
note of its possibilities and chatted
with Marine commanders.
Japs Well Organized
Iwo's defenses were "tremendously
better organized" than on any other
island taken from the Japanese, Ad-
miral Turner said.
As to Iwo's place in future cam-
paigns against the enemy, Turner
"Iwo is going to be a very valu-
able place for us. I am favorably
impressed with the island as an air-
base. It is better than I expected
it to be."

Invention of TU'
Capt. Frederick D. Trautman, for-
mer member of the surgery staff at
University hospital now at a hospi-
tal base in England has devised a
new type of splint using bicycle spokes
which is speeding the recovery of
fingers, hands and forearms of Amer-
ican soldiers wounded in the Euro-
pean theater of action, according to
an Associated Press report.
The new splint permits the patient
to regain the use of his fingers and
hands at the same time outer wounds
are healing. Previously, after wounds
had been healed many months of
highly specialized physiotherapy had
been required before the use of a
stiffened hand could be regained.
Capt. Trautman, who serves as
chief of orthopedic surgery at an
army general hospital, incorporates
the bicycle spokes in a forearm cast
to extend over the fingers and thumb
to act as offsets to the cast. Loops'
of adhesive tape and rubber for the
fingers allows motion of the hands.

First Meetin rToday
Graduate students in the speech de-

ing in behalf of Mihkel Sherman, of
Detroit, one of the seven defendants
in the trial.
Under cross examination by spe-
cial Prosecutor Kim Sigler, Good-
heart testified he had attended in
1939 a money-raising meeting of
the American Naturopathic Associ-
ation of Michigan, of which Sher-
man then was president.
"Sherman presided and said the
meeting was to raise money for the
legislative campaign and support a
lobbyist," Goodheart said. "I under-
stood they were paying legislators,
because I knew it was a common
practice to pay them."
He told Sigler that "the lobbyist
was to get the bill through the legis-
lature and it was up to him to figure
out how." Goodheart said on direct
examination that he contributed $100
to the legislative campaign fund.
The defendants are accused of
participating in a 1939 conspiracy
to exchange bribes when the natu-
ropaths unsuccessfully attempted
to have a bill regulating the prac-
tice of naturopathy passed by the
