Death Reprieve
TOKYO, Friday, Feb.8 - () - A
spokesman for General MacArthur
announced today that the U. S. Sec-
ietary of War has ordered a stay of
execution for Lt. Gen. Tomoyuki
Yamashita pending action by Presi-
dent Truman on a clemency plea.
Yamashita has been condemned to
death on the gallows as a war crimi-
Only yesterday MacArthur had af-
firmed the court martial finding in
Manila against his former adversary
in the Philippines.
The text of the announcement:
"The Secretary of War has or-
dered a stay of execution in the case
of General Yamashita pending action
by the President on a plea for clem-
ency by counsel for the defense.
MacArthur had ordered the hang-
ing of Yamashita to be carried out
secretly at Manila after he had been
stripped of his uniform and all mili-
tary appurtenances.
In1 Japan, where the manner of
death is more important than loss of
life itself, two top-rank generals im-
mediately said the country felt deep-
ly the disgraceful end decreed.
Lt. Gen. Maroru Hara forecast pos-
sible popular demonstrations against
the common criminal's death pre-
scribed by General MacArthur as he

upheld Yamashita's Manila convic-
Mrs. Hisako Yamashita, wife of the
defendant, showed no surprise.
"I have been prepared for the de-
cision," she told Japanese newsmen.

ashi Shimomura (above), Japan's
post-surrender war minister, was

al war crimes suspect. Allied head-
quarters sources said he signed

Wage Increase
Meat Packers May
Get 16 Cent Raise
WASHINGTON, Feb. 7-(/)-The
Federal fact-finding board in the
meat packing wage dispute tonight
recommended a general wage increase
of 16 cents an hour for the 90,000 pro-
duction employes of the five major
meat packing companies.
There are more than 175,000 em-
ployes in the entire meat packing in-
dustry, the board said.
Of the 16-cent increase, the board
proposed that five cents be absorbed
by the companies without price or
subsidy relief. It recommended that
the government approve price or sub-
sidy relief covering the other 11 cents.
The panel also proposed that Sec-
retary of Agriculture Anderson
"promptly present the wage recom-
mendation to the wage stabilization
board for approval. The increase can-
not become effective until that
agency approves.
Companies involved in the recom-
mendation are Armour, Cudahy, John
H. Morrell, Swift and Co. and Wilson
and Co.

Government To
Double Goal i
New Pro gram
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Feb. 7--A new
emergency housing program, designed
to produce 1,000,000 new dwellings
this year and thus double the gov-
ernment's 1946 goal, was well along in
the discussion stage tonight.
Some 'fficials, not quoted by name,
said they expected the new goal to
be officially set up in a White House
announcement soon. The White
Hcuse had nothing to say immedi-
ately. ,
Wilson W. Wyatt Jr., new national
housing administrator, told a housing
conference here of government plan-
ning to "greatly surpass" its present
450,000-home target.
Another speaker, Norton Long of
OPA, told the session that by launch-
ing immediately the needed broad
program "I confidently expect that a
million housing units can be built
this. year."
Wyatt declared that "something
akin to wartime measures" is neces-
sary to break the housing bottleneck.
His movements included appear-
ance at a congressional earing as
well as at the citizen-government
conference on the housing emergency,
which convened this morning.
The day brought these other devel-
1. The government is considering
subsidies to increase the output of
some scarce building materials in-
stead of increasing their prices, the
NHA chief told the housing confer-
2. The House Banking Committee,
after hearing Wyatt behind closed
doors, considered a special investiga-
tion of the possible board use of pre-
fabricated housing. Wyatt had told
the committee that "pre-fabs" would
"play a very considerable part" in the
housing problem.
3. Wyatt renewed his plea that
Congress put price ceilings on the
country's 40,000,000 existing houses.
The committee rejected the idea last
week by a 14 to 11 vote.
4. Rep. O'Brien (D-Mich) intro-
duced a bill to give families of de-
ceased servicemen priority on ac-
commations in federal low-rent hous-
ing projects.
Mic higan M ines
Need Subsidies
WASHINGTON, Feb. 7--(f')-A. E.
Peterman, attorney for Calumet &
HECLA Co., told Michigan congress-
men today that the state's copper
mines would have to close if price
control is extended without continu-
ance of government subsidies.
At a meeting arranged by Senator
Ferguson (Rep., Mich.), Peterman
said no mines in Houghton and Ke-
weenaw counties can produce copper
at present 12 cents a pound ceilings.
Under the government's wartime
premium price plan, producers now
can receive as much as 17 cents a
Peterman said about half of the
Michigan mines can make a "slight
profit" or at least operate without a
loss as that price.
If Michigan mines have to close
some 4,000 employes would be idle,
he said.

Aetivities Poll
Results Will
Be Published
The results of the Alpha Phi Omega
student activities poll are being tabu-
lated and will be ready far publica-
tion. in Th e Daily the first week in
the spring enester, Russ Scovill,
vice-presidien"of the service fratern-
ity, said yesterday
If the ballots which have been
scored are any indication of the final
results, Scovill said, "the poll may
prove surprising to many students
and organizations."
He pointed out that numerous
comments on the need for a revital-
ized school spirit had been written on
the ballots and that students indi-
cated eagerness to participate in a
student government.
"Alpha Phi Omega," Scovill said,
"is grateful fcr the whole-hearted
coaoperationthe students displayed in
the poll."

convinced those who make the rec-
ommendations haven't studied vet-
eran or health problems.
"These gentlement haven't made a
survey of state needs. They have
dr awn their conclusions only from
local problems. They aren't against
my program-all they say is that the
state can't build it. The construction
industry of Michigan says it can be
done and we will do it."
Vote Monday Night
The administration bill providing
$3,300,000 for the University's build-
ing program was advanced to posi-
tion for a vote Monday night.
Rep. Charles R. Feenstra, Grand
Rapids Republican, blocked a move
for an immediate vote on the Uni-
versity appropriation, asking his col-
leagues to consider over the weekend
that only 12 per cent of war veterans
will enroll in colleges, but that 88
per cent "must stay home and work."
"What are we doing for that 88 per
cent?" he asked.
'Excess Baggage'
He said that many of those who did
enroll would drop out of classes as
soon as economic conditions settled
and that "in four or five years we will
be left with a lot of excess baggage
on our hands."
President Ruthven said that if the
legislature waits until next January
to appropriate building funds, it will
be 12 or 18 months before the Univer-
sity can go ahead with any type of
building project.
"We need some indication from this
special session that we are safe in go-
ing ahead in our emergency building
program," President Ruthven said.
"With the $3,300,000 we will be able to
start the program."

Are American schools doing a fine
job or a poor job in developing and
molding (he minds of our youth?
Dean James B. Edmonson and
Prof. Howard Y. MeClusky, of the
School of Education, were among the
experts in a recent pollattempting to
evaluate how well the schools prepare
people for earning a living and for
democratic citizenship.
Training For Family
The school's most unsatisfactory
job, the educators agreed, is in train-
ing our youth for personal and family
responsibilities. One expert said this

Wage Inrease
Auto Workers Sign
Contract with Briggs
By Tlhe Associated Press
DETROIT, Feb. 7-The Briggs
Manufacturing Company and the
CIO United Auto Workers today
signed a contract calling for an 181/2
cent hourly wage increase for hourly
rated workers and 15 per cent boost
for salaried employes receiving $500
a month or less.
Walter O. Briggs, Jr., said the con-
tract covers 12,000 workers who turn
out bodies for Packard and Chrysler
motor cars. The firm also manufac-
tures plumbing equipment. He esti-
mated it will cover upwards of 30,000

tary of Labor, has mediated many

Another function in which the
schools have failed to rate a singile
vote above fair, is in guiding the
youths in the proper use of their
spare time.
Suggest Changes
These educators, from high schools
and colleges all over the nation, have
made the following suggestions:
1. There should be less drill .and
memorizing lessons from books.
2. There should be less require-
ment of foreign and ancient lan-
3. There.should be less emphasis
on "marks" and on preparation for
college, since the mass of high-school
students will not go to college.
More Emphasis Urged
On the other hand, there are many
factors which the educators believe
the schools should emphasize. Some
of the suggested improvements are:
1. The school should provide better
education for citizenship.
2. The schools should improve
health education and physical fitness
programs to make the students
healthier, and not just a few out-
standing athletes.
3. Students should be given better
preparation for shouldering personal
and family responsibilities and should
be given more prior insight into the
problems of love and marriage.
4. High schools should provide stu-
dents with greater opportunity for
vocational training, work, experience,
and guidance in selecting careers.
Deal With Individual Needs
5. There should be more effort to
deal with the needs and abilities of
each individual student. One of the
curses of our school system has been
too much standardization in the
treatment of all students, regardless
of their immense individual differ-
ences in abilities and interests.
Finally, the most important need
of all, in the judgment of a number
of experts, is to make schoolwork
much more alive and interesting. Too
many youngsters, they claim, regard
school as something they are forced
to swallow rather than an enjoyable



Dewey announced late today that
only "non economic matters" were
discussed at another conference of
negotiators in the dispute between
General Motors and the CIO-United
Automobile Workers.
The 90-minute session was at-
tended by lesser ranking members
of the negotiating teams, with neither
side offering anw comment when it
broke up. Dewey said minor contract
matters were discussed chiefly.
