Truman Ignores Yamashita's
LastMinute Plea for Leniency
Jap General To Be Stripped of Military
Medals, Hanged as Sentenced by Tribunal
mious penalty decreed by General
Douglas MacArthur-that Yamashita
be "stripped of uniform decorations
and ottler appurtenances signifying
membership in the military profes-
sion" and hanged.
Truman merely sent a secretary to
tell newsmen verbally that he would
not act. And the war department
issued this statement:
"The War Department has been
advised that the President will take
no action on the petition for clem-
ency filed by counsel for Lt. Gen.
Tomoyuki Yamashita. General Mac-
Arthurhas been given this informa-
This notification to MacArthur
apparently cancelled the instructions
sent him last night to stay the exe-
cution temporarily in view of the
clemency plea. MacArthur's instruc-
tions for the hanging were given
Wednesday, two days after the Unit-
ed States Supreme Court here had
refused to interfere with the sentence
imposed by the military tribunal. And
in Manila, Lt. Gen. Wilhelm D. Styer
was free to proceed with the execu-
tion as already planned, in secret.
Yamashita, who commanded Jap-
anese troops in the Philippines, was
convicted of condoning atrocities,
sacking and willful destruction. Mac-
Arthur scornfully declared that he
had "profaned" the military pro-

New Regulations To Be
Effective This Spring
The new ruling for architectural
students receiving a grade below C
will not apply to those who receive
the grade at the end of this semester,
Prof. Wells I. Bennett, Dean of the
School of Architecture and Design,
New ]Rule Explained
One of a group of regulations an-
nounced yesterday, the new rule
reads as follows: a student may not'
elect a course in the most important
sequence in his curriculum unless he
has received a grade of C or better in
the preceding course of the sequence.
This is understood to include basic as
well as major sequences in both free-
hand drawing and design for all stu-
dents in the design program.
In other words, Dean Bennett ex-
plained, if a student receives a grade
below C for a course taken this se-
mester, he will not be affected by the
regulation. However, any courses in
which he enrolls during the spring
semester will come under the ruling.
Other 1Rules Effective
Also effective on March 4 are the
following rules: 1) If a student is
absent from a course in which he is
registered, during the first week of
the semester, he will automatically
be dropped from the course. Excep-
tion will be made for veterans enter-
ing the univeresity at the beginning
of the term; 2) The student may re-
elect the course in question (in the
following semester) in order to raise

Mayor Iirown To Receive
Special Award Monday
Gov. Harry Kelly will present a
special award to Ann Arbor's Mayor
William E. Brown, Jr. for services
with the draft board, Monday in
Brown served on Ann Arbor and
Washtenaw county boards for four
former designer of film sets for the
Army Signal Corps.
Mr. Bobri, a Russian born Amer-
ican, studied for 13 years in his na-
tive land prior to coming to this
country. Working in his studio in
New York City, he has done illustra-
tions for numerous advertising firms;
he has been a frequent winner .in
competitions for original advertising
Twelve Original Designs
The exhibition of Mr. Bobri's work
consists of 12 original designs de-
picting the 12 signs of the Zodiac.
In these he has employed a tech-
nique similar to that for which he is
known in the advertising world.
The architecture school is show-
ing sketches of motion picture set
plans which Mr. Hollenbeck had
done before he came to the school
as an instructor in design. Drawings
for documentary, morale and train-
ing films which he executed for the
Army Pictorial Service range from
those of scenes of groups of soldiers
at the battle front to views made of
war-torn European countries. In
many cases his works are merely
quick sketches and are not to be
viewed as finished works.
Musical Comedy Sets
In addition there are designs for
sets of several musicals and musical
comedies drawn by Mr. Hollenbeck.
These featured well-known per-
formers of stage and screen were
made for a motion picture studio by
Mr. Hollenbeck while he was a civil-
Both exhibitions are shown on the
first floor corridor of the architec-
ture school daily from 9 a.m. to 5

DETROIT, Feb. 8-Rigid control
of the atomic bomb-"the greatest
problem facing the peoples of the
world"-was urged here today by
Prof. Harold Curey, Nobel Prize win-
ner for his part in developing the
D3r. Cturey proposed the placing of
atomic energy under supervision of
the United Nations Organization "as
rapidly and completely as possible"
and the delegation of enough author-
ity to UNO to, "atfinally" on the
Here at home, he said, domestic
legislation on atomic energy sould
be placed in the hands of "sympa-
thetic people-civilian, not military."
The famed scientist set forth his
program at a press conference pre-
ceding a rally tonight for "A Demo-
cratic Foreign Policy in the Atomic
Age." The rally was sponsored by
the'Michigan Citizens Committee and
listed also Senator Charles W. Tobey
of New Hampshire, Mrs. Paul Robe-
son and President R. J. Thomas of
the United Auto Workers (CIO)
among the speakers.
The only alternatives to United
Nations control of atomic bombs,
Dr. Curey said, are:
1. An armament race which would
lead only to another world war in
"25 years or less." If this course is
followed the United States "will be
frightened" by the prospect inside
2. Production of atomic bombs by
this nation alone with the intention
of "taking over the world." This
would lead to "dictatorship in this
country and our ultimate downfall."
Fears 'Dictated' Appointments
The former Columbia University
professor said he felt a "lot is being
done" by the UNO at London to-
ward solving the problem, but added
that he feared appointments to some
committees were being "dictated by
the War Departnent."
Atom bombs, he said, still are be-
ing manufactured at Los Alamos, N.
M., but the rate of production is
being kept as a "military secret."
Thus, he said, the American people
are being prevented from learning
about the supply of "our most dan-
gerous weapon" but have free access
to figures on the size of our armed
forces, our number of bases and
other military 'data.
Will Arrive Today
Dr. F. E. Godoy Moreira, Brazilian
professor of orthopedic surgery will

Department. He will leave Ann Ar-
bor Feb. 22 to visit other leading

New York legislature to levy' a one
per cent sales tax.
Detroit, however, has been unable
to levy a sales tax and consequently
has had to raise rates for the De-
troit Street' Railway System, Prf.
Whether the local units will be
able to press their- demands in the
present special session of the legis-
lature will depend on interpretations
of the state constitution and the
The constitution specifies that no
subject may be considered in a spe-
cial session unless it is specifically
included in the Governor's message.
Prior to the opening of the ses-
sion, Atty.-Gen. John R. Dethmers,
in response to inquiries from local
units, said that Gov. Kelly would
have to say "pecifically" in his mes-
sage whether local aid was to be
considered a subject for appropri-
Examination of Gov. Kelly's mes-
sage leads to confusion on the point
in question. In one section, the Gov-
ernor told the legislators that local
needs must be considered in apprais-
ing the needs of the state. But he
did not include state aid to local
units in his list of subjects for which
he desires legislation.
The question resolves itself, then
into the meaning of "specific".
Another point of contention is the
construction industry. The munici-
palities claim that it is useless to
appropriate large sums to education-
al institutions because the construtc-
tion industry is stalled and the vet-
erans' demands for higher education
will be over before the new buildings
can be completed.
Gov. Kelly, however, says the con-
struction industry has the ability to
get the buildings up in a short time.
The state's 10 mental hospitals,
according to Prof. Ford, are in ur-
gent need of new buildings. At pre-
aent the courts have committed
1,000 cases for which no hospital
space is available, and another 1,080
cases are on the waiting list for
