Tokyo Rose A GI Invention;
Helps Morale of Americans

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Aug. 7- The Navy
jocularly cited Tokyo Rose, today as
a morale builder for American for-
ces in the Pacific, but records of gov-
ernment radio agencies produced
these conclusions:
There is no Tokyo Rose; the name
is strictly a G. I. invention:
The name has been applied to at
least two lilting feminine voices waft-I
ed over the Japanese radio.
Regular Announcer
U. S. government radio monitors
have concluded that Rose is both a
regular woman announcer on radio
Tokyo short wave programs and the
clever girl on the Zero Hour shows.
Whoever she may be, the Navy
praised Tokyo Rose's ability to
War Victims
To Get Clothes
Before Winter
Clothing contributed by the Ameri-
can people will reach millions of war
victims overseas before winter, a re-
port from the United National Cloth-
ing Collection revealed yesterday.
The report was sent to George H.
Gabler, local chairman of the cloth-
Included in the report is a state-
ment from President Truman in
which he pointed out.:
"By meeting and exceeding their
goal of 150,000,000 pounds of cloth-
ing, the American people havehac-
complished the task assigned them
by the late Franklin D. Roosevelt in
a cause that was close to his heart."
, Gabler added, "Every person who
helped our community collect ap-
proximately 100,000 pounds of cloth-
ing for overseas war relief should
feel proud of having participated in
this great cause."

"bring laughter and entertainment
to our men and women."
The legend of Tokyo Rose has
grown steadily since the summer of
1943 but government monitors listen-
ing in 24 hours a day have never
heard the word "Tokyo Rose" over a
Japanese-controlled Far Eastern
First Public Mention
Tokyo Rose first was mentioned
publicly in the spring of 1943 when
newspapers carried a story from the
Aleutians about a Japanese woman
broadcaster known by the name to
servicemen in the area.
When servicemen speak of Tokyo
Rose, they seemingly refer to the
mistress of ceremonies on the "zero
liour" dinnertime program. She has
a girlish voice and a manner de-
scribed as gay and clever. Her ap-
parent purpose is to make her listen-
ers homesick.
The entertainer usually calls her-
self "Annie of Radio Tokyo," "Little
Orphan Annie," or "Your favorite
enemy Anne."
Legend has it that Tokyo Rose al-
most routinely heralds the arrival of
new divisions in a Pacific theatre by
welcoming the commanding officers
and others by name.

atre in Seattle, Wash., and heads its
staff as production director.

French Film
To Be Shown
Final Foreign Movie
Of Summer Session
A French production, "Ultimatum "I
to be shown at 8:30 p. m. EWT (7:30
p. m. CWT) Friday and Saturday in
Rackham auditorium, will be the last
foreign film to be presented by the
Summer Session Office.
The film stars Eric von Stroheim
and Dita Parlo and is directed by
Robert Wiene. Wiene is famous for
the introduction of expressionism into
movies in his production of "The
Cabinet of Dr. Caligari."
Frank Nugent of the New York
Times has written of "Ultimatum":
"A strangely vivid, naturalistic ac-
count of the war of nerves which al-
ways precedes war itself. It is an in-
teresting record of the growth of
those monstrous fungi-hates, sus-
picions, and arrogances which spring
up overnight on a shadowed land."
Admission is free and the film is
supplemented with English titles.

ing, aphasia, cleftupalate and hearing
difficulties will demonstrate the im-
provement which can be made with

Vandalism was given an artistic
touch yesterday.
Maybe it was a whimsical desire
to achieve a rainbow effect to
brighten up the day, or maybe it
was just destructive spite that
prompted someone to open two
large cans, of paint which were
being used at 614 Monroe St., mix
them together and add gasoline to
one can.
Edward Mulreed, 1426 Broad-
way, reported the incident to city
police, pointing out that whatever
the motive, the liquids were made

LANSING, Aug. 7-P)--The State
Land Office Board voted today to
permit discharged servicemen to buy
tax delinquent lands without com-
petitive bidding from other prospec-
tive purchasers.
Auditor General John D. Morrison
Board chairman, said the Board had
rejected the proposal of a Ferndal
veterans counseling agency that ser-
vicemen be allowed to buy the state-
owned lands at less than their ap-
praised value and that entire plots
be preserved for veterans home sites
Morrison asserted the law required
that the landssbe sold for not less
than the appraised valuation and
that the Board believed veterans
might not want to be segregated into
special areas.
However, he said, the Board was
willing to abandon its traditiona
policy of requiring competitive bid-
ding for its lands and would sell them
without bids to veterans who could
i present a certificate of eligibility
from the State Office of Veteran

e Affairs, showing that the applicant
is financially able to build a home
or business place. The veteran also
must show that he served at least
90 days in the armed forces and has
an honorable discharge.

les meanwhile denied reports that the

1 any price increase for most manufac-
- turers.
n However, Bowles authorized a
d spokesman to say there is no possi-
bility of an increase as high. as 25
s per cent.

doubtful if all the new rooms that
could be uncovered by a house-to-
house canvass would add more than
four or five hundred to the present
indicated capacity."
Tabulation of Rents
In its study of Ann Arbor housing,
the Bureau of Business Research
made a complete tabulation of the
room, house and apartment rents fil-
ed with the Rent Control Division of
the Office of Price Administration.
On the basis of this tabulation, it
was discovered that as of June 1,
1945, rooms with a capacity of 3,235
not now occupied by students have
been rented in Ann Arbor since 1941.
Records of the University cover pres-
ent housing facilities for 7,505 stu-
dents including approximately 1,133
military personnel living in register-
ed rooms.
Possible 2,886 Capacity
If the commercial rentals, such as
hotels and rooms in substandard dis-
tricts are eliminated from the OPA
registration figures, the report point-
ed out, the capacity of additional
rooms which might be available for
students is 2,886. This figure, it was
explained, is an unattainable maxi-
