U.S. Did Not
Fight for Land
Truman Tells World
We Fought for Peace
By The Associated Press
BERLIN, July 20-President Tru-
man told the world today that the
United States does not propose to
trade its sacrifices in the bloodiest
of wars for territorial conquest or
monetary gain.
Speaking only a few miles from'
the former Kaisers' palace where he
is working with Prime Minister
Churchill and Generalissimo Stalin
on a formula for preserving Europe
against future war he declared point-
"We are not fighting for conquest.
There is not a piece of territory or
one thing of a monetary nature we
want out of this war."
The words were spoken at the
historic occasion of the raising of the
stars and stripes over the capital of
Germany-"our greatest adversary."
Picked infantrymen from the second
("hell on wheels") armored division
then heard this solemn warning:
"We must not forget that we are
fighting for peace and for the welfare
of mankind."
"We want peace and we want to
see the time come when we can do
the things in peace that we have been
able to do in war," the gray-haired
Missourian assured the victorious

Slaughter of'Helpless Civilians
Two Lieutenants Escape Prison Camp,
Describe Garrison Under Jap Rule
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, July 20-Two survivors of the heroic marine garrison
on Wake Island said today the defenders surrendered to the Japanese largely
to prevent further slaughter of unarmed civilians.
Seventy civilians had already been killed, along with 49 Marines, when
the little Pacific Island was finally given up to strong enemy forces on Dec.
23, 1941, they related.
The survivors, first to tell of the last hours on Wake, were First Lieuten-
ants John A. McAlister, 26, of Blue Mountain, Miss., and John F. Kinney,
30, of Colfax, Wash.

Poswar Problems
Purpose of the meeting is to ac-
quaint superintendents and school

1939, they occupied all of the school
buildings from the grade schools to
the universities. The Ministry of
Education was turned into head-
quarters for the Gestapo, and its ar-
chive rooms became torture cham-
Faculty members were seized im-
mediately and either killed at once,
or sent to concentration camps where
they were tortured before being exe-
cuted. The few professors that man-
aged to escape organized "under-
ground schools," where small groups
of 'students met daily for several
'Underground Schools'
Each day students in the "under-
ground schools" had to change their
place of meeting because all educa-
tional activity was forbidden. With
every means of transportation taken
over by the Germans, students had
to walk miles in the cold and snowy
Polish weather to get to school.
There was no heat. There was no
glass in the windows. They attended
their "underground" classes wearing
sweaters and coats.
The Germans confiscated the print-
ing presses and the libraries. Books
were procured from older friends who
had already graduated, and when the
students had finished using the books,
they passed them on to their younger
Warsaw Uprising
In the 63-day uprising in Warsaw,
the entire city was destroyed-the
University of Warsaw along with it.
Learning is going on in Poland to-
day, but in the open, not in hiding.
Yet students still must use their
make-shift facilities.
Immediate government financial
aid for rehabilitations of the Univer-
sity is impossible because the Polish
government is new. The only way
that students of the University of
Warsaw may rebuild now is through
material help from persons outside
the nation.

Adoption Dance
Will Be Held
An "Adoption Dance," sponsored
by the Student Organization for In-
ternational Cooperation, will be held
from 9 p. m. to midnight EWT (8 to
11 p. m. CWT) next Saturday in the
ballroom of the Union.
Entire proceeds of the dance will

lection of the university will be made
by the entire student body at a cam-
pus election to be held Friday, and
the name of the institution chosen
will be announced at the dance.
In order to supply students with
information regarding the universi-

They have just reached Washing-
ton after escape from a prisoner of
war camp near Shanghai, China. Now
they managed that is a secret.
The Lieutenants said the Japanese
killed two wounded men in a sur-
rendered hospital, forced all the sur-
rendering garrison to strip and tied
them to posts for hours. They al-
lowed the captives no food and little
water for two days.
435 on Wake
They told a news conference that
there were 435 Marines on Wake at
the start, that the 50th Marine death
came the day after surrender.
It was Lt. Kinney who was credited
with keeping the island's fewtplanes
in the air by a proces of patching,
swapping parts, stripping and re-
Lt. McAlister was with the defense
forces on tiny Wilkes Island, part of
the Wake atoll, which was the last
defending unit to surrender.
Improvised Hospital
Kinney said he was in an improvis-
ed hospital suffering from exhaustion
when the surrender order came, and
a surrender flag was raised over the
hospital shack. When Japanese troops
arrived, he said, all personnel who
were able were standing with arms
raised, but the.Japanese nevertheless
fired into the shack, killing two and
wounding one.
All of the surrendering garrison
were stripped naked and tied to posts
for several hours and then kept in
the open for two days. On Christmas
night they were moved to barracks
and given two meals a day from
their own stores.
A Little Rice
The prisoners arrived in Shanghai
January 24.
Food in the prison camp consisted
of small portions of rice, and occa-
sionally some cabbage or carrots with
a tiny piece of meat about every
third meal.
The prisoners' health held up fair-
ly well after Red Cross packages
began to arrive.
When the first attack came ecem-
ber 8, Wake time, Kinney was 0
miles at sea with a four plane patrol.
The garrison's eight other planes
were dispersed on the ground as
much as possible, but the first at-
tack destroyed seven and badly dam-
aged the eighth. Of the island's 44
air personnel, 20 were killed or ser-
iously wounded.

Allied Police
Seeky German
Illegal Dealers
Illicit Trading Centers
Discovered in Berlin
By The Associated Press
BERLIN, July 20-Big-time Ger-
man operators in illicit stocks of
Allied food and gasoline were sought
by Military Police of the American,
British and Soviet occupying armies
here tonight.
American and British security"of-
flcers have for two weeks been care-
fully spotting centers of illegal trai-
ing, especially in Allied military sup-
plies, against the time when the
higher-ups could be grabbed. Author-
ization by the Berlin Kommandatur
brought Soviet Military Police into
action as part of the dragnet.
German Police Help
Units of the German police force
joined Allied Military Police in an
affort to clean up a situation which
U. S. Maj. Gen. Floyd L. Parks called
a menace to the city's welfare.
Parks told the second meeting of
t h e Inter-Allied "Kommandatur"
that he believed the "black market"
had grown to"alarming proportions."
French Sit In
His proposal that coordinated
measures be undertaken to wipe it
out was approved immediately and
provost marshals of all four powers
prepared joint operations. TheFrench
sat in at the meeting but did not
participate because they are not yet
occupying part of Berlin.
Unofficially it was acknowledged
that troops of all armies represented
here had been drawn to some extent
into the whirlpool of speculation
among physically hungry and paper-
rich Berliners.
Street vendors of rationed foods
have been demanding sky-high pri-
ces inillicit sales.
