Jap Threatens Use of
Weapon Like A-Bomb
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Friday, Aug. 10-The
Japanese radio in Singapore in a
broadcast monitored by BBC said
today that Japan has a weapon
"similar to the atomic bomb" and
will use it "to the utmost against
United States military personnel."
The broadcast was not clear as
to the exact nature of the purport-
ed weapon but said "Japan is fully
aware of the true aspects of atomic
energy" and "the Anglo-United
States nations must have drawn
on the result of Japanese reser-
ond use of the fantastic atomic bomb

Red Position In
China Censured
By Shepherd
Until Soviet Russia discontinues
her unwarranted interference in the
internal affairs of China, there will
be no peace in Aisa, the Rev. George
W. Shepherd, former advisor to Gen-
eralissimo Chiang Kai-Shek, declared
yesterday in an address in the Reli-
gious Workshop series.
Warning against allowing Russia
to set up a propaganda base in Man-
churia, Dr. Shepherd saw no possi-
bility of reconciliation between Chi-
na's ancient ways and the Russian
culture of today.
Civil War
"Civil war is almost certain to,
break out in China," he said, "be-
cause the western ideas of the Chi-
nese Communists are incompatible
with the culture inherent in Chinese
The necessity of restoring China's
confidence in herself and her ancient
cultrue was emphasized by Dr. Shep-
herd. "China has been under pres-
sure from three sides, from Russia,
from Japan and from the western
powers to change her ancient ideals
and manner of living," he said.
Changing Attitude
In an address entitled "Changing
Attitudes in China," Dr. Shepherd
pointed out that although China was
at first anxious to adopt western
ways, she is gradually learning that
only basically Chinese ways'will work
in China. Admitting that China
could enrich her culture by adopt-
ing certain western ideals and cus-
toms, he insisted that the Chinese
culture that has been built through
the ages should be the foundation
for her way of life.

declared that Russia had agreed to enter the Pacific war even before
she was informed of the atomic bomb. "We gladly welcome into the
struggle against the last of the Axis aggressors," he said, "our gallant
and victorious ally against the Nazis."

Vets Treated
For Aphas'it by
Speech Chnic
EDITOR'S NOTE: This article on the
Speech Clinic is the second in a series
entitled "what the University Is Doing
for the Veteran."
Aphasia, which has plagued many
World War II veterans who have sus-
tained head injuries, deprived them of
speech, ability to read or write and
memory, is being conquered at the
University Speech Clinic.
It is a tedious and slow process
which involves "learning the easy
things all over again," and is not
guaranteed as a complete cure, but
the Speech Clinic can, nevertheless,
show good results. "-,.
Former Aphasic Released
One aphasic, Nick Zerilli, has been
released from the clinic and is back
at his old job in a Detroit factory.
Zerilli underwent the extensive treat-
ment of the Clinic which is operated
in cooperation with Percy Jones Hos-
pital at Battle Creek.
Dr. Ollie L. Backus, professor of
speech and acting manager -of the
Clinic pointed out that aphasia arises
from destruction of brain tissue and
affects patients differently. Methods
of treatment get down to basic fun-
damentals, she explained.
Writing Difficulty
Take the case of war veteran Dan
Cooper, 30, who, when he started
speech training, had difficulty under-
standing and participating in conver-
sation and had lost much of his
reading and writing ability.
Today, he is making steady gains
in all these areas of language ability.
A plant nurseryman before the war.
Cooper practiced his reading using
seed catalogues while improving his
math working on simple multiplica-
tion and division tables.
Everett Perry, former United Press
reporter, when he started his training.
like Cooper, had difficulty in all areas
of language. After several months
of guidance, his speech patterns are
very close to normal. He plans to
return to the newspaper business, and
is now writing accounts of his experi-
ences which are used in the Clinic's
training program.
In the process Dr. Backus termed,
"re-education," clinicians placed him
in real life situations, drilled the pa-
tient in speech, put him into club ac-
tivities and exploited the human ten-
dency to imitate.
Reeducation Treatment
"Capitalizing on this tendency is
an integral part of our methods of
treatment," Dr. Backus said.
Another veteran, Nick DeSanto,
having regained partial speech, dis-
played interest in horse races. His

Mr. Truman gave no indication
that the enemy had made any ges-
tures, either since the advent of the
terrible new weapon or the entry of
Russia into the war, to end by capitu-
lation the destruction of which he
warned them.
Only Stirrender
Only surrender, he said, will stop
the use of the new agency of demoli-
tion and the Japanese alternative is
In his first lengthy radio talk, Mr.
Truman gave no indication when he
expected the Japanese to quit, either
through surrender or through force.
But he said the Soviet decision to
declare war on Japan was only one of
the secret military arrangements
made at Potsdam.
"The Japs will soon learn some of
the other military secrets agreed upon
at Berlin," he asserted, "they will
learn them first hand-and they will
not like them."
Analysis of Potsdam
The chief executive devoted a large
share of his address to an analysis
of what was accomplished in his
Potsdam Conference with Premier
Stalin and British Prime Ministers
Churchill and Attlee.
But he also touched at some length
on the Pacific war and asserted that
this government did not lightly un-
dertake the production and use of
the terrible atomic bomb.
"We have used it," he said, "in
order to shorten the agony of war, in
order to save the lives of thousands
and thousands of young Americans.
"We shall continue to use it until
we completely destroy Japan's power
to make war. Only a Japanese sur-
render will stop us,
Britain and the United States he
said, do not intend to release the
secret of history's most terrible weap-
on until means have been found to
control it so as "to protect o selves
and the rest of the world frdm the
danger of total destruction."
Lawless World
"The atomic bomb," Mr. Truman
declared, "is too dangerous to be loose
in a lawless world."
Hiroshima, a military base, was
picked as the target for the first
atomic bomb, the Chief Executive
said, to avoid killing civilians so far
as possible.
"But that attack is only a warning
of things to come. If Japan does not
surrender, bombs will have to be
dropped on war industries, and un-
fortunately, thousands of civilian lives
will be lost. I urge Japanese civil-
ians to leave industrial cities imme-
diately and save themselves from de-
Military Bases
The President, renouncing for the
United States any territorial gains
or profits or selfish advantage from
this war, made it plain, nevertheless,
that this country intends to have the
military bases "experts deem to be es-.
sential for our protection."
Those not now in our possession, he
said, we will acquire under arrange-
ments consistent with the United Na-
tions Charter.
Mr. Truman did not disclose what
strategic areas he has in mind which
this country does not already hold.
The United Nations, he asserted,
are determined there shall be no
next war because what is being done
to Japan now "is only a small frac-
tion of what would happen to the
world in a third world war."

Hold On to Bonds, Paton Advises

If we are to avoid ruinous inflation,
millions of Americans who own war
bonds should plan to hold them in-
definitely, Dr. William A. Paton of
the school of business administration
said yesterday.
Bondholders as a group must be
content to collect and spend the
interest on their bonds and must
repurchase bond for bond as they
mature, Dr. Paton pointed out.
National Debt
Dr. Paton, who is critical of the
amount of borrowing the govern-
ment has resorted to instead of rais-
ing funds through heavier taxation,
believes that the national debt can-

at the situation: The national debt
already amounts to more than $250
billions; it will approximate $300
billions by the end of the current
fiscal year.
$10,000 per Family
There are 25 to 30 million families
in the United States. This means
that by next June, the debt will ex-
ceed $10,000 per family. If, on the
average, each family attempts to re-
deem bonds amounting to $1,000 in
the first year after V-J Day, this
will place a total demand for $25
billions on the Treasury. The im-
mediate postwar budget is estimated
at from $20 to $25 billions, includ-

the same aggregate amount that
bonds are presented for redemption
by the American public.
The debt might be repudiated di-
rectly or indirectly, Dr. Paton ex-
plained. The government might
start the printing presses rolling
out $25 billions a year in paper mon-
ey instead of issuing new bonds, but
this would be financial suicide.
Capital Tax
Or the government might formal-
ly repudiate the bonds by levying a
100 per cent capital tax on bond
holdings. But Dr. Paton maintains
that every effort should be made and
will be made to avoid such ruinous
