Army's Chief Judge Advocate Declares
Justice, Fair Play Must Prevail in Service

Curious Ann Arborites and Univer-
sity students lined up two deep for designed strictly for a one-way mis-
blocks yesterday to ogle the Jap sui- sion.

"You must remember that you are
not the prosecutor of the soldier, but
rather the guardian of his rights and
liberties," Maj.-Gen Myron C. Cram-
er, the Judge Advocate of the Army,
said yesterday in his graduation ad-
dress to the 11th Officers Class of the
JAG School.
"Officers of our branch returning
from foreign duty report on assign-
ments little dreamed of when they
left," he said, "from the instruction
of troops to action as diplomatic
agents to potentates of distant
Justice Prevails in Armed Forces'
He pointed out that the graduates
must remember that the American
sense of justice and fair play prevails
in the armed forces just as it does
in other phases of our national life.
Approximately 12 men out of the
class of 67 will have assignments for
foreign duty. Other assignments will
be to the Judge Advocate General's
Office in Washington, D. C., various
Army headquarters, ports of embark-
ation, service commands and troop

Military Justice,
We Assume
A diller, a dollar, I'm a nighty poor
Not a man to preach to my teacher
But I have beyond question a corking
Regarding the following feature:
When you bring us a test which you
think is your best
And pass it around in the room
Each one of us fellas requests that
you tell us
Just when and where not to assume.
You give us the facts regarding some
Out in Reno, Nevada, one night
And ask us to find with juristic mind
The charge that is proper and right.
When we finally refused to charge
the accused
You said, with Bostonian sneer
"Why, you were assuming that young
love was blooming,
But we do no assuming in here!"
After leaving the hussy to discuss
Private Bussey
You toot a new tune on your flute:
"He was gone an hour and hid in t
You assume he eluded pursuit."
Now the Pretzel Bell crowd argues
strongly and loud
On the question of what one should
The habitues who always make A's
And the sons of habitues too.
I'm just a bit leary of raising the
For my grade is already low
But when to assume or not to assume
Is something I really must know
My darkness is Stygian, I coo like a
I shake like a prospective groom
I think I'm a daisy, I'm a little bit
'Cause I never know when to assume.

Service Men Fall
Victim to Racket
Romance in Ann Arbor is be-
coming an expensive affair as
shakedown artists invade the Ar-
boretum and demand a price to
go away.
Operating in the daytime these
public nuisances, aged eight or
nine, attach themselves to wander-
ing couples and refuse to budge
until bought off by nickels. Find-
ing the racket quite profitable, the
youngsters discovered that the
servicemen were their most willing
"It's a nickel, or we won't move,"
is the slogan of the group.

Sailor Living
In West Quad
Pleads for .iron
"I wish some kind-hearted coed
would send me an iron or offer to do
my washing," Burton Siegel, mem-
ber of the V-12 program, lamented
"You see," he explained, "I've been
washing my undress whites in a
washbowl in the West Quad and the
pressing situation is pretty tough; I
have to wait for hours to get dibs on
one of the several irons on our deck."
"The washing situation isn't so
good either," he said laughingly, "the
chlorox and soap flakes are hard on
my hands!"
"We've worked out quite a system
for washing our whites," Siegel ex-
plained. "First, we soak them for
ten minutes in water, then for fifteen
minutes in chlorox."
After that a scrub brush is applied
to the more than soiled spots. It is
important to rinse all chlorox out as
chlorox and a flat iron produce a ma-
jor catastrophe," he continued, "the
result would be something like yel-
lows, not whites."

Chiang 's Friend
To Give Talk On
Post, War China

Sponsor Address of
Christian Missionary
Dr. George W. Shepherd, who was

World?" at 8 p.m. Thursday in the

has been a missionary in China for
20 years and since 1933 has been par-
ticularly a c t i v e in rehabilitation
work. John Gunther in his book,
"Inside Asia," mentiohed the fact
that Dr. Shepherd had done fine
work in Nanking and had become
one of Chiang's best friends.
Believing that the only sure and
lasting foundation of a newand bet-
ter world is to be found in building
spiritual understanding between ra-
ces, Dr. Shepherd has declared that
"missionaries are the true scientists
in the realms of human relations."
