PARIS, June 12-Former Premier

Marshal Henri Petain as a defeatist,
delivered two notes today to Pierre
Bouchardon, president of the high
court encharged with preliminary in-
terrogations in the coming treason
trial of the former Vichy chief of1

The trial of 89-year-old Petain now
is expected to take place between
June 28 and July 5 in the Palais
Bourbon, former Chamber of Depu-
ties and unused since 1940.
Andre Mornet, French state prose-
cutor who sent the glamorous spy
Mata Hari to her death during the
first world war, announced recently
he would demand the death penalty
for the 89-year-old Marshal-and
then ask clemency.
Petain has completed the prelimi-

Mornet Wants Supreme Penalty
"Petain deserves the supreme pen-
alty," declared Mornet, who is al-
most as old as the Marshal. He ad-
ded, however, that he would ask for
conviction, then suggest clemency.
"I think lie has reached the age
where consideration of humanity
should prevail," he explained.
The Supreme Court, before which
the former national hero will be
4tried, might pronounce the death sen-
tence and then suspend it, or it

The 112,000 girls of the United States Cadet Nurse
Corps are doing one of the most important jobs
in the country's war effort.
While they learn as student nurses, Cadets help
free graduate nurses for duty with the Army and
Navy. 80% of all nursing in hospitals with schools
of nursing in 1944 was done by students, working
under graduate supervision.-
No wonder the U. S. Government is glad to give the
Cadet Nurses tuition, room, board, and uniforms
free ... and a monthly spending allowance.
In return, the Cadet Nurse pledges to do only essen-
tial nursing-military or civilian, for the duration.
If you want free education for this proud profession,
check the list at the right. If you can answer "yes" to
these questions you may be eligible for membership
in the U. a. Cadet Nurse Corps.
