If the Wolverines top tonight's

top team in the State, having previ-

12 points to spare, and, in the return - an

Drive Is
First Day
Galens Solicitors
Make Half of Goal
The Galens bucket campaign "for
the kids" collected $1,774.50 yester-
day in the first day of the 17th an-
nual drive.
Although well-pleased with the
"excellent campus response," Marty
Feferman, '46M, chairman of the
drive, said that yesterday's collec-
tions represent only half the effort.
The goal set by the Galens is $3,000.
Yesterday the medics concentrated
on campus, but today the brigade
will move downtown in order to give
Ann Arbor citizens a chance to con-
tribute to the fund.
Several "pail men" will be on cam-
pus today, however, so that students
who were unable to make their con-
tributions yesterday will be able to
do so.
Members of Galens were confident
that the drive will go over the top to
nmake it three in a row. The 1943.
and 1944 drives each netted more
than $3,000.
The drive is the 17th annual ef-
fort to raise funds for the Galens
workshop, children's library and
Christmas party for the "kids" in
University Hospital.
The Galens workshop, only one of
its kind in the country, is the pri-
mary object for which funds are col-
lected. The funds will be used to
purchase new equipment and sup-
plies, replace equipment much used
during the war years and increase
the scope of workshop activities.
Big Three Meet
Will Consider
World Issues
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 -(P)- The
foreign secretaries of the United
States, Britain and Russia will meet
in Moscow Dec. 15, the State Depart-
ment announced tonight, to tackle an
array of critical international issues
including control of atomic energy.
Secretary of State Byrnes is plan-
ning to fly to the Russian capital,
probably leaving Washington early
next week.
It is considered improbable that he
will be home by Christmas.
This will be the first meeting of
Byrnes, Foreign Minister Bevin, of
Britain, and Foreign Commissar Mol-
otov, of Russia, since the breakdown
of the London council of foreign min-
Some of the main problems con-
fronting the governments of the three
great powers as the time for the for-
eign ministers meeting approaches,
1. The whole machinery of Euro-
pean peace making has stalled as a
result of the breakdown of the coun-
cil at London in September and there
has been no final agreement on a
compromise proposed by Byrnes that
a general European peace conference
should be held by the end of this
year-the time limits now being ob-
viously out of the question.
2. The refusal of the United States
and Britain to recognize the govern-
ments of Romania and Bulgaria re-
mains a touchy point with Russia
which considers her interest in those
countries to be dominant.

FOUND GUILTY OF ATROCITIES-Lt. Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita,
Japanese leader in the Philippines, sagged his shoulders as he heard
the death sentence pronounced yesterday.

Burned Too Quick
A burned match that once be-
longed to Yamashita is the latest
University War Collection addi-
tion, donated by a former camper
at the University Fresh Air Camp.
"The match is burned out as its
possessor soon will be," Dr. Frank
E. Robbins, assistant to President
A. G. Ruthven, commented.
Prof. F. N. Menefee of the
School of Engineering, sponsor of
the camp, forwarded to Dr. Rob-
bins a letter, with match attached,
from Major Walt Luszki, '37, now
stationed in Manila.
The other day I made a visit to
one of our prisons, New Bilibid.
It's the Sing Sing of Luzon, a
modern bastile construction. Here
behind steel bars Gen. Yamashita,
the Tiger of the Philippines is
spending his time. I talked to him
shortly after he had a bull session
with other officers and admirals,"
Major Luszki writes.

lap War Trials
Are Scheduled
For January
Tojo Will Be Among
First Criminals Tried
By The Associated Press
TOKYO, Dec. 7 - War crimes
trials of top Japanese are scheduled
to start in January, with former
Premier Hideko Tojo high on the
calendar for the proceedings at
which death penalties probably will
be asked, the American chief prose-
cutor disclosed today.
Joseph B. Keenan, special prosecu-
tor newly arrived in Tokyo with his
staff, said that Allied Nations had
been invited to nominate members of
the court, which will be appointed by
General MacArthur, and to partici-
pate in the prosecution, but that
none had yet named such personnel.
Speaking at a 30-minute press con-
ference after a lengthy session with
MacArthur, the gray-haired Keenan
said the Japanese would be tried in
groups, as in Germany, with "the ac-
cused presumed innocent until
proved guilty."
In announcing the tentative Janu-
ary starting date, with Tojo and his
"Pearl Harbor" cabinet near or at
the head of the roster, the prosecutor
said accusations would go back to
1937, when Japan started war in
"What about the Emperor?" a cor-
respondent asked.
"No comment on that," Keenan
replied firmly.
With trial preparations thus , in
progress, Marquis Koichi Kido, one
of the highest figures yet named on
the list of 286 war criminal suspects,
put the finger on Tojo as chiefly to
blame for the war.
Kido insistedthat the Emperor
was not responsible for the outbreak
or prosecution of the war and stated
emphatically that the Emperor never
had indicated any intention to abdi-

Acheson Hurt
Iran Policies
Gen. Patrick J. Hurley's charge that
American foreign policy in Iran had
been destroyed by Undersecretary
of State Dean Acheson brought a
denial today from President Tru-
The President made his first com-
ment after Secretary of State Byrnes
told the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee that Hurley had failed
to back up his charges against the
conduct of American diplomats in
China. Byrnes in effect challenged
Hurley to do so.
Byrnes said he had never heard
of the charge against Acheson until
he read in the papers what Hurley
had to say.

,Symphony Will Play Monday

The Boston Symphony, acknowl-
edged to be one of the world's most
distinguished orchestras, will high-
light the sixth Choral Union con-
cert at 8:30 p.m. Monday in Hill Au-
ditorium with the popular Prokofieff
"Classical" and Fifth symphonies
and the Sibelius "Symphony No. 2."
Conducted by the famous Russian
Serge Koussevitzky, the symphony'

two months. Sergei Prokofieff, 54-
year old Russian composer, was a
success under the Tsar, in exile and
new again in Soviet Russia.
The University is among 17 Ameri-
can colleges which the orchestra
visits during its annual tours. Found-
ed sixty-three years ago by Henry
Lee Higginson, a young Bostonian
student of music in Vienna, the or-

vitsky," the name of the Boston
Symphony's Russian conductor has
become synonomous with discrimi-
nating classical and modern sym-
phonic music. The distinguished
maestro has not only maintained
the prestige of Boston's famous
orchestra but also has advanced
and augmented its already out-
standing cultural position.
