War Casualties Total 764,584,
Secretary Stimson Announces

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Feb. 8.--American
casualties in all theatres now total
enough to man 50 divisions.
Secretary of War Stimson said to-
day Army casualties--killed, wound-
ed, missing and prisoner- totalled
676,796 on the basis of individual
names compiled in Washington
through Jan. 24.
The Navy's 87,788 casualties puts
the combined list at 764,584.
However, about 200,000 of the woun-
ded have returned to duty.
Stimson also reported that 865,000
German prisoners were taken on the
western front since D-Day.
Simultaneously, the War Depart-
ment reported that 359,248 prisoners
of war are now held at camps in this
country. Included are 305,867 Ger-
mans, 50,561 Italians and 2,820 Jap-
Stimson reiterated at his news con-
ference that there is "no pampering"
of prisoners of war and suggested

that the position of Italian service
units is sometimes misunderstood.
Men in the service units, he said,
are volunteers for war work assign-
ments and can be used for any task
short of combat. Italians in the strict
category of prisoners of war, on the
other hand, he said, cannot be used
in any work directly related to war

Rain .Blows on
Nazi Territor y
Warplanes Blast Reich,
Fleet at Copenhagen
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Feb. 8.- Allied war-
planes kept up their widespread at-
tacks on the enemy today and to-
night with a series of strikes into
Denmark, Holland, Austria and Ger-
many itself.
An Associated Press dispatch from
Stockholm said Allied bombers poun-
ded the harbor at Copenhagen, Den-
mark, shortly after ten o'clock to-f
night in a blow presumably directed
at light units of the German Baltic
fleet which have been reported there.
The German radio said other Al-
lied bombers were over Pomerania
tonight in small formations, probably
indicating an RAF attack on German
targets lying in front of Marshal
Gregory K. Zhukov's First White
Russian Army.
V-2 installations in Holland-the
launching and supply sites for Ger-
man rocket weapons which are still
harassing southern England- were
attacked in daylight by RAF fighter-
bombers. Several direct hits were
made dc,,pite severe flak.
American heavy bombers based in
England were held at their bases
today, but the Mediterranean com-
mend was able to send its heavies
into the Vienna area for the second
straight day.
Medium bombers of the U.S. 12th
Air Force turned from their routine
daily hammering at the Brenner Pass
railroad and hit rail bridges in north-
eastern Italy.
DNB Reports Ancient
Berlin Monument Strafed
LONDON, Feb. 8.-(P)-The Ger-
man News Agency DNB told the Ger-
mans tonight that Berlin's center felt
the full force of Saturday's daylight
raid by U.S. heavy bombers and that
"Lhe castle, a monument of Berlin
and probably one of its most ancient
buildings, is completely burned out."
The report said direct hits inflicted
heavy damage on the Berlin State
Opera House and asserted, "It may
give satisfaction to British and Amer-
ican men of culture to have inflicted
such wounds on us."

Bill To Become
Law March 17
By The Associated Press
LANSING, Feb. 8-Governor Kel-
ly announced today he would sign
reluctantly the Porter "slow time"
bill which was whipped through final
Senate aproval this afternoon with
one vote to spare to make it effect-
ive at midnight March 17.
With only two Detroit Democrats,
Senators Charles N. Youngblood and
Henry R. Kozak, opposing the move,
the Senate had one more than the
necessary two-thirds vote to give the
bill immediate effect and make the
March 17 date possible.
Kelly, who maneuvered a compro-
mise on the time fight two years ago,
made it plain he did not agree with
the Legislature's action, but said "I
shall not veto this bill."
"I have nothing," he said, "before
me to justify placing my judgment
against the overwhelming majority
of the House and Senate."
Best Capitol concensus was that a
municipality may fix its time as it

\VASHINGTON-(1R)-If, tonight,
you could write the orders that would
seal the fate of the Emperor of
Japan, what would you write?
You could exile him "in an ice-box
in China." But suppose Japanese
troops in China fight on after Tokyo
falls? United Nations leaders might
need Hirohito back in Tokyo to or-
der them to lay down arms.
May Become Martyr
Also, if he is treated too severely
he could become a martyr to his
people. In a couple of generations
they might break out into a war of
You might, as a Chinese has sug-
gested, give him somewhat luxurious
exile in London. But how would
women who lost sons at Guam and
Saipan feel to hear of him rolling
off to the opera in a big limousine?
You might order that he remain
in Japan as long as he's useful; or
you might decorate his neck imme-
diately with a hangman's rope.

All but the plan to hang him came
