Hess Must StandaHral-
Nazi Horrors 11eveae

Amnesia Hoax
Tale Reported
Prosecution Witness
Presents Testimony
NUERNBERG, Dec. 1-(AP)-Rudolf
Hess, self-confessed amnesia faker,
was ruled fit to stand trial today, and
then listened intently as defense at-
torneys failed to break down a Ger-
man spy chieftain's testimony link-
ing some of his co-defendants with
the worst horrors of Nazism.
British Lord Justice Sir Geoffrey
Lawrence announced the Interna-
tional Military Tribunal's decision
that Hess was "capable of standing
trial," with no further medical exami-
nation necessary. Before the court
opened, Hess had regaled his fellow.
defendants with the story of his lost-
memory hoax.
Attorneys Plead In Vain
Attorneys for Field Marshal Wil-
helm Keitel, Herman Goering, and-
Joachim von Ribbentrop sought in
vain to upset the story told by Maj.
Gen. Erwin Lahousen, former officer
of the German counter-intelligence,
and first prosecution witness.
Butheight other German lawyers
for three hours grilled Lahousen,
who yesterday declared that Hitler
and the entire German high com-
mand were to blame for atrocities on
the eastern front.
Von Papen's Role
The attorneys for Franz Von Papen,
wily diplomat in the days of Nazi
power politics, extrcted from La-
housen an expression of belief that
Von Papen "stayed on in a political
capacity in order to exercise a miti-
gating influence" on Nazi policy.
Keitel's attorney let slip an admis-
sion that orders for branding Soviet
war prisoners were the "result of a
terrible misunderstanding" at the
Fuehrer's headquarters. The attor-
ney asled Lahousen if such was the
case, and Lahousen replied that he
did not know.
To Von Ribbentrop's counsel, La-
housen only reaffirmed that the for-
mer Foreign Minister said in Septem-
ber, 1939, that Polish farns must be
burned and Jews killed.

Returns to U
Served Overseas With
Military Government
The Board of Regents has ap-
proved the return of Lt. Col. Arthur
W. Bromage to his professorship in
the Department of Political Science,
Prof. Everett Brown, chairman of
the department, announced.
Prof. Bromage, on a terminal
leave at the present time, was sta-
tioned at various civil affairs and
military government training schools
throughout the country. He also
served in England as chief of a basic
course in civil affairs.
Later he participated in training
programs in Normandy and was ad-
ministration and local government
officer in Munich as part of the
Regional Military Government De-
tachment for Bavaria.
Prof. Bromage is one of three
members of the political science de-
partment who returned to teaching
this semester. Prof. Lawrence Preuss
served with the State Department
for three years, and Prof. Harlow
Heneman was economic advisor to
the Military Government Headquar-
ters Group in Germany. Both have

now returned to the university.

Faculty Will
Decide Changes
In Curriculum
Professors To Deuss
New L.S. &A. Program
The faculty of the literary college
will continue its discussion of pro-
posed chaniges in the college's curric-
ulum at a meeting of the faculty at
4:10 p.m. tomorrow.
The proposed changes have been
submitted to the faculty by the Joint
Committee on the Curriculum, which
spent over two years in studying re-
vision of the University's liberal arts
Speculation continues as to
whether the proposed changes em-
body the general education idea as
advanced by such schools as Har-
vard, Yale, Columbia and Chicago, or
represent a compromise between the
general and specialized schools of
Adoption by the faculty of the gen-
eral education idea would entail a
drastic revision of the entire literary
college curriculum. A compromise
might be followed by changes in the
number and type of required courses
and in the requirements for concen-
tration in a particular field.
Chicago adopted the entire general
education idea in 1930 and divided
its freshman-sophomore curriculum
into four areas-humanities and so-
cial, physical and biological sciences.
Harvard, Yale, Columbia and other
schools have adopted general educa-
tion on partial basis.

Student Group
Will Promote
Liberal Action
Revamped Council Will
Hold Mass Meeting
A mass meeting for the organiza-
tion of a student group to promote
constructive action on campus, local,
national and international post-war
problems, will be held at 7:30 p.m.
Tuesday in Rm. 304, the Union.
Organized by members of the Post-
War Council as a student body for
liberal action, the group will change
its emphasis from the principle of
"intelligent thought and discussion
of post-war problems" to that of
"constructive action toward the reali-
zation of a just, cooperative world."
Activities of the re-organized
council will extend from a cam-
paign for an active student gov-
ernment such as other large state
universities have on campus to
pressure for the passage of national
legislation such as the Full Em-
ployment and wage and hours bills
and international control of the
atom bomb. Studies will be made to
correlate the local and campus sit-
uations with the national problem.
Formed on Dec. 8, 1941, immedi-
ately after the news of the Pearl
Harbor disaster, at a meeting in
President Ruthven's office, the Post-
War Council sought to combat an
evident apathetic isoliationist atti-
tude among the students. During the
1944-45 school year, the council, un-
