TOKYO, Sunday, Nov. 25-General
MacArthur in a stern "war does not
pay" directive today ordered the Jap-
anese government to tax away the
war profits of all Nipponese firms and
individuals and make a capital levy
ranging up to 70 per cent on corpor-
ate and private fortunes-including
the imperial households.
Prohibits Credit
In the most strongly worded order
British Draw
Near Control of
Soerabaja Base
Indonesians in Java
Still Offer Resistance
BATAVIA, Java, Nov. 24-()-The
British virtually completed capture of
Soerabaja tonight, but were battling
powerful Indonesian forces in at least
two other areas of Java and were re-
ported to have set the torch to native
settlements in one locality in retalia-
tion for mutiliation of captured Brit-
ish troops.
Heavy fighting was reported in
central Java at Semarang and Am-
barawa. In Soerabaja the British
blasted Indonesian positions with
Sherman tanks to advance more
than a mile in the two-week's old bat-
tle for the big naval base.
The new gains placed the British in
control of Soerabaja's prosperous
residential area of Simpang and left
only the southern suburb of Darmo to
be taken.
A captured Indonesian Lieutenant
estimated nationalist casualties in
the Soerabaja fighting at around 5,-
The burning of native settlements
was ordered by a British brigadier,
the Dutch News Agency Aneta re-
ported, after a searching party found
the mutilated bodies of four RAF
crew members and 20 Indian soldiers
whose planes had crash landed yes-
terday six miles from Batavia.

of the occupation to date, the su-
preme commander prohibited all gov-
ernment credit or subsidy activities
pending sweeping reorganization of
government finances, and direct the
Japanese to submit a complete war-
profits tax program to the first ses-
sion of the Diet in 1946.
MacArthur also ordered the gov-
ernment to terminate by Feb. 1 the
payment of any discharge allowances
or service pensions to Japanese veter-
ans "except compensation for physi-
cal disability limiting the recipient's
ability, to work."
War-Profits Tax
Generally the tax program con-
templates a 100 per cent war-profits
tax on all war industries and a gradu-
ated tax up to 100 per cent on all
other corporations and individuals,
supplemented by a graduated capital
levy up to at least 70 per cent.
The recapture of war profits and
the capital levy are expected to yield
well over 100,000,000,000 yen, thus
providing "the financial basis for the
reorganization of government fi-
nances toward peaceful ends."
MacArthur described the directive's
termination of all service pensions as
"another major step toward lighten-
ing the deadweight burden which
Japanese militariasm forced the rest
of the country to bear."
Permitted To Import
Meanwhile, hungry and bedraggled
Japan obtained permission from
MacArthur to import food, cotton,
petroleum and salt, thus opening' the
way for revival of its foreign trade.
Tempering this news, however, was
the disclosure by Kyodo News Agency
that allied occupation would cost the
Japanese about 10,000,000,000 (B)
yen ($667,000,000) annually. Presi-
dent Truman's reparations represen-
tative, Edwin Pauley, already has ex-
pressed doubt that Japan can meet
the bill.
Metallic echoes of the old aggres-
sive era were heard in the nation's
foremost scientific laboratories, as
sledgehammers wielded by American
troops smashed five cyclotrons with
which Japanese scientists had been
probing for the secrets of atomic

In response to the greatly increased
demand for educational opportunities
during the post-war period, the Medi-
cal School has augmented its pro-
gram of graduate and post-graduate
instruction in five fields, with courses
designed to aid returning medical of-
ficers and civilian physicians.
The Department of Post-Graduate
Medicine announced yesterday that
the number of resident staff positions
in all of the departments within the
University Hospital has been in-
creased to enable qualified physicians
to obtain additional hospital training.
Those whose post-graduate specialty
preparation was interrupted by the
war may also apply to the hospital
for appointments to one of the new
"Special Instructorships."
Three intensive review courses,
each of two months duration, have
been established, the first one sched-
uled to begin January 1, 1946, the
others following in succession. Dur-
ing the spring semester, brief review
courses in specialized fields, running
from three days to one week, will be

Plan Is Hindered by
Legal Restrictions
By The Associated Press
NUERNBERG, Germany, Nov. 24-
Defense attorneys said today they
would call titled members of the
"Clivenden Set" and other prominent
Britons as witnesses in the historic
war crimes trial, but it appeared they
would be blocked by legal restrictions.
Lawyers Disclose Plans
The lawyers for the accused Nazi
leaders disclosed their plans at a
press conference. It was learned au-
thoritatively later that restrictions on
bringing in foreigners as defense wit-
nesses before the international mili-
tary tribunal are so multifold that
"Big Names" are almost excluded at
the outset.
The defendants who planned to
call British witnesses were former
Foreign Minister Joachim Von Rib-
bentrop, Field Marshal Wilhelm
Keitel and former deputy Fuehrer
Rudolf Hess.
May Call Lady Astor
Von Ribbentrop's attorney said the
one-time German ambassador to
London would call Lady Astor and
others who used to meet in the 1930's
at the Clivenden estate of Lord and

Lady Astor, including Lords Beaver-
brook, Londonderry and Derby.
Kei tel's attorney annrounced that
his client would call Giles Rommily,
a nephew of Winston Churchill who
was captured by the Germans at
Narvik, Norway, in 1940, and Capt.
Michael Alexander, a cousin of Field
Marshal Sir Harold Alexander, also
a prisoner of war.
Hess' attorney indicated he would
call the Duke of Hamilton, on whose
estate the former No. 3 Nazi landed
when he parachuted upon Scotland in

Has anybody, here seen Murphy?
Commander harry Fitch would
know, for unless that big hand-

Murphy is used to uniforms. In
fact, he's rather partial to them, for
before he came here with Lieut.
Henry Loeb six months ago, Murphy
stayed with an Army officer.
Lieut. Loeb, who was in C.A.T.
school, is now in Japan. so Murphy
is carrying the torch until he returns.
