U.S. Joins All-Nations
,Food Organization
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, July 21-The Senate shouted approval for United
States membership in the United Nations Food Organization today, thus
forging another bond of international cooperation before it takes up the
United Nations Charter next week.
The resolution commits this country to contribute $625,000 to the
first year's operations of the Organization which grew from the Interna-
tional Food Conference held at Hot Springs, Va., in 1943. It authorizes
a contribution of up to $1,250,000 annually thereafter.
Twenty-three other nations, including the United Kingdom and China,
already have accepted membership.
The organization's purpose is described as studying ways to improve
world nutrition. Claude R. Wickard, then Secretary of Agriculture, testi-

American Subs Sink
11 Enemy Vessels
By The Associated Press
Radio Tokyo boasted of a new sec-
ret anti-invasion weapon today while
the Japanese government moved to
mobilize communications workers in-
to an actual fighting force to help
defend the battered homeland.
Except in China little new ground
action was reported from the vast
Pacific-Asiatic war theater. The
Chinese were fighting furiously on
the approaches to one of the biggest
prizes in the southern part of that
country-Kweiling and its. three big
air fields.
Warned to Surrender
In Washington the Navy Depart-
ment announced the sinking of 11
additional Japanese ships by Ameri-
can submarines.
Meanwhile the Japanese were told
officially by an American spokesman
that unconditional surrender was
the. "only way. by which you can
make possible the salvation of Ja-
The Army and Navy Journal, un-
official service publication, said Pres-
ident Truman took with him to the
Big Three Congerence a draft of the
State, War and Navy Departments'
terms on Japanese surrender. These
terms, it said, provide for disarma-
ment of Japan, loss of territory out-
side her home islands, complete econ-
omic control by the United Nations
and surrender of war criminals.
The Navy department announce-
ment said the latest bag of the Yank
subs included four small combat
ships and two transports in addition
to some cargo ships.
The submarines, prowling deep in
Japanese waters since the early
months of the war, have sunk a total
of 1,174 ships-144 combat vessels
and 1,030 others.
Mine Sweeper Lost
The Department announced the
loss of the American motor mine
sweeper YMS-84 in Borneo waters.

action. This raised to 325 the num-

the camp under the supervision and
guidance of trained counsellors.
Defines Camp Purpose
The purpose of the camp, Prof.
Ferdinand Menefee explained, is "to
seek the basic reason for the boys'
lack of acceptable progress" in his
social and school environment. A
record is kept at the camp of the
boy's progress and is submitted to
the social agency in charge of him
for further study.
The 37 counsellors and the camp
staff, consisting of at least three Uni-
versity teachers, are chosen for their
knowledge of adolescent child psy-
chology and their training in educa-
tion and social work. The counsel-
lors are furnished their tuition, room
and board and are required to take
six hours in education and sociology
Founded in 1921
.The camp had its beginning in
1921 when Lewis C. Reimann, foot-
ball tackle, and student pastor of the
Presbyterian Church in Ann Arbor,
took a group of city boys on a two-
weeks camping trip. At the request
of Marion LeRoy Burton, President
of the University, 180 acres of land
on the shores of Patterson Lake, 23
miles from Ann Arbor, was purchased
for the camp.
The original purpose was to give
Detroit boys a two-week vacation un-
der the leadership of volunteer Uni-
versity students. Eight years ago the
University Summer Session began to
offer to the counsellors graduate
courses related to the camp program.
The camp was officially accepted by
the University Board of Regents in
June, 1944.

WASHINGTON, July 21-The story of American financial deals which
built up Germany between wars and hints that some American tycoons

The department, following its usual custom of publishing state papers
after 15 years, put out 2,000 pages of documents on American foreign rela-

The chapter on Germany gives considerable attention to Hitler, then
clutching for power. It also shows that American policy worked closely

Officers Arrive
To Enter Civil
Affairs School
Ninety-one Army officers, includ-
ing three British and three Canadian
officers, have just arrived in Ann Ar-
bor to form Class IV of the Civil Af-
fairs Training School, Far Eastern
They join the one hundred officers
of Class III which will be graduated
August 18.
The new group recently completed
an eight-week intensive course at the
School of Military Government,
Charlottesville, Virginia, and will
start on its 26-week course hereMon-
day, July 23. It represents fifteen
branches of Army service and all
grades from second lieutenant to
lieutenant colonel. Many of its mem-
bers have been on overseas duty.
In addition to study of the prin-
ciples, techniques, and mechanics of
military government and their ap-
plication to Japan, the course of in-
struction in the Civil Affairs Train-
ing School includes study of Japan-
ese language and characteristics of
the Japanese nation and people, as
well as physical training. The school's
administrative offices are located in
the Rackham Building which also
accommodates most of the instruc-
tional activities.
Pursuing a curriculum prescribed
by the Provost Marshal General's

stable Reich.
American Interests
The American Charge D'Affairs in
Berlin wrote Secretary of State Henry
Stimson that he had heard "certain
American financial interests" were
actively backing Adolf Hitler and his
Nazis as a means of combating trends
toward Socialism in Germany.
George A. Gordon, the Charge
D'Affairs, also said that "Hitler re-
ceived very substantial financial sup-
port from certain large industrial in-
terests." He, judged, however, that
their influence on him "has been defi-
nitely a restraining one."
Sympathy Pleas
It ,has been widely predicted that
German policy following, the Reich's
recent defeat will be based on pleas
for sympathy, combined with efforts
to get around anti-aggression con-
trols. The '1930" papers show actual
operation of just such stumbling
blocks in the path of those who
tried once before to destroy German
war potential and plans.
The record shows a close parallel to
stumbling blocks which -have been
widely predicted for the Allies in their
second attempt., to destroy German
war potential and plans.
Germany was' expounding a desire
for international peace, but stressing
German armed 'equality with the rest
of Europe as an important basis of
that peace.

WASHINGTON, July 21 -.(,P)--
Senators back from Europe said to-

now is plotting the way.
Senator Kilgore (D-W. Va.) said
that at least three-fourths of Ger-
many's industry could be rehabilita-
ted in "three months to a year, at the
Senator Mitchell (D-Wash.) said,
"Germany is still the world's third
largest industrial power. Within five
years she could be stronger than she
was in 1939."
They and Senator Ferguson (R.-
Mich.) spoke on a radio program
against the idea of letting Germany
ever get into a position again to wage
aggressive warfare.
Kilgore said that German indus-
trialists "already have their plans
well laid. They intend to recover
their property and patent rights and
they are already moving to reestab-
lish their old cartel connections, as
they did after the last war."
Ferguson remarked that "if we let
German companies like I. G. Farben
keep their foreign holdings, they will
go on pretty much as before." He ad-
vocated taking away this property
for reparations and breaking internal
German monopolies as well.
