centered around her colonies and
territorial influence. No vote was
taken on territorial provisions for
Japan or the imposition of punish-
ment on Japan.
During a speech in which he point-
ed out some of the controversies
which had emerged in the general
discussion, Dr. Melvin Tunmin of
Wayne University, said that we
should concern ourselves, not with
whom we shall punish, but with the
fcrces in the defeated countries that
we know to be democratic." "These
forces," he said, "will take care of
the fascists for us." He asserted, in
addition, that we must encourage
the right of self-determination in
countries like our defeated enemies.
Some of the problems which Dr.
Tumin pointed out had occurred in
the panel discussion included the
re-educability of the German people,
especially the youth, whether war is
a fight to win or a fight for human-
ity, the definition of "Crimes Against
Humanity".
Charter Amendments
Amendments to the charter were
voted upon in the evening panel on
"Building the Bulwark of Peace".
Added to the provision that each
member will have one vote in the
security council was the provision.
that Russia, White Russia and the
Ukraine should have separate votes.
For determination of action against
an aggressor, the conferees decided
that a 3 4 majority rather than 2j3
majority should be deemed necessary.
Added ,to the section concerned

with the world court, was the provi-
sion that a 2/3 majority vote in the
general assembly can impeach a'
judge.
The deiegates agreed that the Gen-
eral Assembly may make recommen-
dations on any matter relating to
the maintenance of international
peace and security which is being
dealt with by the Security Council.
The original provision states that
the General Assembly should not
make these recommendations. Dele-
gates also eliminated the use of the
words "peace-loving nation" from
the clause c_ ┬▒insbership of the
security conneil.
Prof. Preston Slosson of the his-
tCory dept., in a summary speech,
stated that "if we could 'lave one-
tenth of the cooperation shown in
fighting the war in the work of pre-
venting the war, we will succeed." He
said that "one mistake may be ex-
cused in the formulation of peace.
We have been given a second chance
and we will never have another
chance. We must set up a charter
to prevent the recurrence of these
cosmic wars."
Liberated U.S. Soldiers
To Operate POW Camps
NEW YORK, April 28.-( P)-Am-
erican soldiers liberated from Ger-
man prison camps will be assigned
to operate prisoner of war camps for
enemy soldiers interned in New York,
New Jersey and Delaware, the Army's
Second Service Command announced

War's Soial
Affect Stated
Dr. Angell Reveas
Need for Reform
Three points on which his sociol-
ogy has been affected by two years'
experience as a colonel in the armed
forces were emphasized by Dr. Rob-
ert C. Angell in a talk at the lunch-
eon session of the spring meeting of
the Michigan Sociological Society
here yesterday.
Sociologists should place less em-
phasis on the study of values, Dr.
Angell believes, and more emphasis
on action in the fields of zocial
reform.
He also stated that his experience
overseas impressed him with the dif-
ficulties which will accompany inter-
national cooperation. Dr. Angell con-
cluded by emphasizing that in study-
ing institutions, sociologists must re-
member that they are dealing with
living people.

First Michigan Man Decorated
In Africa Returns to States

NOW IN REPRINT
"A TREE
GROWS IN
BROOKLYN"
By Betty Smith

STATE STREET at NORTH UNIVERSITY'

By KATHRYN UMPHREY
BATTLE CREEK, Mich., April 28
-( P)-Reckoned in lengthy, drawn
out war years, the Allied invasion of
Africa was so long ago and so much
has happened since, that civilians
tend to forget the big day when the
Yanks first went into action in that
theatre.
Forget it, that is, until someone
like beribboned T5 sOrris Corey turns
up,. Michigan's first son to be dec-
orated for action in Africa, Corey
(rove a jeep through enemy shellfire
on the historic Nov. 8, 1942, carrying
peace terms to the French.
He spent the first two and a half
days of the African war as a prisoner
and when liberated narrowly missed
being killed by his own men who
weren't sure the Allies and French
had come to terms.
Corey, who comes from Evart,
Mich., was awarded the silver star
for his jeep-driving and Col. Demas
T. Craw, of Traverse City, who was
killed on the same ride, was awarded
the congressional medal of honor
posthumously.
Just now back from 29 months
overseas, the 24 yeai' old blond Cor-
poral, who wears five battle stars,
remembers every detail of that day.
He didn't know until he saw Ameri-
can, French and white flags in his
jeep that he was going to do a spe-
cial job.
"When we started toward the town
(they landed at Port Lyantey, French
Morocco) there was a lot of fighting
going on behind us, and our own bat-
tleship fire was just missing us as
we were curling around that road
to the fortress," Corey related, con-
tinuing.
"I remember seeing those Moroc-
cans along the road and Col. Crow-
ley said 'Take your first look at your
enemy.' They weren't firing at us,
but beyond them on the straight road
some others started firing. We were
surprized but the Colonel said to
keep right on going. Then he got
hit-killed right away-and they took
Major Piedmont Hamilton and me
prisoner."
The French put Orris in a non
commissioned officers' barracks. That
was Sunday and on Tuesday one of
the noncoms who could speak Eng-
lish came tearing in. "He was real
excited, kissed me on both cheeks,"
the Corporal recalled, grinning. "He

said we weren't fighting any more
--that it wasn't in their hearts to
fight anyway."
Gen. Truskett later awarded Orris
the Silver Star while he was still in
Africa. Corey then fought on with
the 6th combat Engineers Corp for
the next two years-through Africa,
landings at Sicily, Salerno, Anzio,
up through Naples, Rome, the inva-
sion of southern France and into
Northern Alsace before he was
wounded.
He'd still be fighting, he says, if
it hadn't been for the Belgian break-
through. "They took most of our
infantry and we had to retreat.
"I didn't expect to get wounded
any of that time and I didn't expect
not to. You don't ever think about
tomorrow. You don't even think
you'll be sent home.
Ernst Stresses
Veterans' Aid
"The disabled American veteran
faces a period of great responsibility,"
stated Carl R. Ernst, the newly in-
stalled commander of the Washtenaw
county chapter of the DAV.
At the installation meeting held
Friday night in the VFW club rooms,
Commander Ernst voiced his policy:
"In this community it is my hope
that the problems of the disabled
veteran will receive first place in our
wartime activities. We have a great
obligation to the returning disabled
veterans and as the official voice of
the disabled, the DAV under my
term of office will continue to aid
in the rehabilitation and welfare of
the disabled veteran and his depend-
ents."
