Organization of
Polish Group
Committee Condemns
Russian Views, Policies
Prof. Carlton F. Wells, head of the
University freshman English depart-
ment, today announced the forma-
tion of the Michigon Committee of
Americans for Poland, an organiza-
tion designed to "acquaint people
with the facts of the current Russo-
Polish question."
Wells, chairman of the committee,
pointed out that his group is com-
posed of 12 Michigan people, largely
from Detroit, Royal Oak and Kala-
mazoo, who "condemned Russia's
part in trying to talk down the Pol-
ish issue."
Polish Record
"Poland-Here Is the Record," a
64-page booklet, has been published
by the Committee and distributed to
editors of Michigan newspapers,
members of Congress, and libraries
throughout the nation.
Te booklet was written by Ann
Su Cardwell, for 17 years prior to
1939, a resident of Poland, and has
a foreword by author and foreign
corespondent, William Henry Cham-
No Freedom
The pamphlet ridicules freedom in
"liberated Poland" and asserts that
in Poland today there is no freedom
of either speech, press, or assembly.
Economic conditions under the Lu-
blin government, it declares, are
worse than under the German occu-

New Committee
Is Denounced
Prof. Louis C. Karpinski, of the
University mathematics department,
who has been identified with Polish-
American movements for more than
35 years, last night denounced the
newly-formed Michigan Committee
of Americans for Poland as a "re-
actionary group".
His colleague, Prof. Carlton F.
Wella, chairman of the University
freshman English department, has
been named chairman of the Con-
mittee whose purpose is "to bring
the facts of the Polish-Russian dis-
pute to the people."
Criticizing the Committee's recent-
ly-published pamphlet, "Poland-
Here Is the Record," Prof. Karpinski
declared, "Most of the major points
in the group's booklet have been dis-
.credited by action of the British gov-
"This type of pamphlet is inspired
by Junker Poles who fear for the
safety of their large estates," he said.
"This propaganda is definitely re-
"In the long run, this sort of thing
will do neither Poland nor Poles
throughout the world any good,"
Prof. Karpinski pointed out. "Prof.
Wells is sincere in his beliefs, but
greatly misinformed."
Today Charles M. Davis will

speak on "Problems in the
Relations of the United
States and the Southwest
Pacific," for the Confer-
ence on the U. S. in the
Post-war World at 4:10

discover how individuals acquire giv-
en attitudes of character traits.
Besides meetings from 9 to 12:30
p. m. EWT (8 to 1:30 p. m. CWT)
daily at the Union for the members
of the workshop, public lectures by
various authorities will be held
throughoutthe two weeks. Eachof

duced by Dr. Ligon.
Christian Attitudes
"How Christian Attitudes Are De-
veloped" will be discussed by Dr. Li-
gon at 4 p. m. EWT (3 p. m. CWT)
Sunday at Kellogg Auditorium. Prof.
Louis A. Hopkins, Director of the
Summer Session, will introduce Dr.
The second lecture in the series,
"Attitudes Taught in the Jewish
Home," will be delivered by Rabbi
Leon Fram of Temple Israel, Detroit.
Civil Interests
The workshop and lectures will be
of particular interest to two groups,
according to Dr. Edward W. Blake-
man, Counselor in Religious Educa-
tion. Members of the faculty who
have read Dr. Ligon's books on atti-
tude development, Dr.Blakeman said,
would want to hear Dr. Ligon. In
his books, "The Psychology of the
Christian Personality" and "'heir
Future Is Now," Ligon claims that
he can condition a child to develop
eight desireable traits. Vision, love
of righteousness and truth, domin-
ating purpose and forgiveness are
among those eight traits.
The other group which Dr. Blake-
man believes will be particularly in-
terested in the workshop will con-
sist of church school teachers, pub-
lic school teachers and parents.

Allies Hit
Jap Fleet
At Kure
Superforts Blast
Tokyo Bay Targets
GUAM, Thursday, July 26-A)-
Twenty Japanese warships, includ-i
ing six aircraft carriers, five cruis-
ers and three battleships, were dam-
aged in Tuesday's Allied 1,200 car-;
rier plane attack on Kure Naval Base,
and the Inland Sea, Fleet Adm. Nim-
itz announced.i
A sky fleet of Superforts blasted
oil targets in Tokyo Bay today-the
third day of an unrelentingcampaign
of destruction from sea and air that
has wrecked the core of Japan's re-
maining navy and spread ruin along
her shores.
The Japanese said some of the
1,200 U. S. and British carrier planes,
after pounding 325 miles of south-
ern Honshu Tuesday and Wednesday,
veered far north and hit the north-
ernmost island of Hokkaido while
warships bombarded a possible in-
vasion point south of Tokyo.
Admiral Halsey declared his U. S.
Third Fleet with its British ally was
embarked on "the opening of the
final plunge into the heart of Japan"
and "If the Nips do not know they
are a doomed nation they're even
stupider than I think they are."
The Japanese said that the Criba
plain stretching for some 40 miles
east of Tokyo was a likely site for
the Allied landings when they came
and reported that the skies over the
area had been "converted into a
hurly-burly thoroughfare for Super-
forts, Liberators and Mustang fight-
Gen. George C. Kenney in Manila,
predicting 5,000-plane raids on Japan,
asserted that enemy communications
would be so disrupted by bombings
that he expected "almost a total lack
of opposition on the beaches" on in-
vasion day.

Marshal Petain
Ref uses To
Speak At Trial
Daladier And
Lebrum Testify
PARIS, July 25-(iP)-Aged Mar-
shal Henri Philippe Petain, his face
like an image, bluntly refused at his
treason trial today to answer ques-
tions whether he had congratulated
Adolf Hitler on the British defeat at
Dieppe and asked Hitler's permission
for French troops to fight alongside
the Germans.
"The Marshal's honor is at stake,"
a juror shouted across the jammed
and overheated courtroom in the pal-
ace of justice, and mutterings and
protests from jurois and spectators
met Petain's refusal.
Remained Adamant
But the 89-year old former chief of
the Vichy state remained adamant.
He said through his lawyers that he
would not reply.
The dramatic issue was raised dur-
ing the third day of Petain's trial on
charges of intelligence with Germany
and of plotting the security of the
French State-a day in which for-
mer French Premier Douard Daladier
and Albert Lebrun, last president of
the Third Republic, testified against
the old soldier.
Petain Uninterested
Much of the day Petain appeared
uninterested. Once he said he hadn't
heard a question. He saw Lebrun
near tears as the former French pres-
ident said he could hardly express his
"profound distress" at the sight be-
fore him of "A man, a warrior of
France, who has risen so high to have
fallen so low."

Drils For Japs
Continues To Arrive
Here From Europe
By The Associated Press
CAMP GRUBER, Okla., July 25-
Troops of the 86th (Black Hawk) Di-
vision, veterans of action in Cologne,
the Ruhr pocket and Bavaria, swarm-
ed into this $40,000,000 post today for
retraining for Pacific combat.
Personnel of the division, first to
be redeployed from Europe through
the United States to the Pacific, will
continue to arrive for a week or ten
days before reaching its full strength
of 15,000.
Their training will stress individual
initiative and operations by small
units, regarded as much more essen-
tial in the Pacific than in the Euro-
pean theater.
In store for the youthful soldiers-
their average is 23-was an eight-
weeks workout including physical
conditioning, prevention of tropical
and insect-borne diseases, flame-
throwing techniques and jungle fight-
ing in general.
The plan, directed by Lt. Col. Stan-
ley Gortikov, Los Angeles, Calif., G-3
operations officer, was designed to
toughen the troops for hardships in
the Pacific area even more severe
than those they experienced in Euro-
pean fighting.
Lessons in use of the flame-throw-
er to silence pill boxes and drive
Japanese from hiding places will be
stepped up.

Ruthven Tells
Need For
State Department Plan
For Postwar Revealed
First public airing of a state de-
partment requested post-war interna-
tional education program was pres-
ented last night by President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven in a speech before
the Post War Conference on the topic
"Problems of Educational Coopera-
"It is not only likely, but desirable
that the interchange of foreign stu-
dents should accelerate after the
war." There is no better way to
establish and maintain international
understanding than through a reci-
procity in education," President Ruth-
yen said.
Pointing out that a clear cut pro-
gram of exchange is necessary, he
said, "if foreign students are care-
lessly selected and badly oriented, the
end is likely to be disillusionment if
not antagonism."
President Ruthven then presented
his seven-point program for post-war
international education.

mended that the Institute of Inter-

Titiev Attacks
Race Theories
Attempting to disprove the dogma
of racial superiority, Dr. Mischa Ti-
tiev, of the anthropology department,
who spoke on "The Problem of Inter-
racial Cooperation," told a Rackham
Theatre audience yesterday that, all
professional anthropologists agree
that no race is more inferior bio-
logically than any other race.
Dr. Titiev, in revealing why we are
averse to race mixture, explained
that we have also built up the false
notion that the culture of the white
race is superior to the culture of
other peoples. "What we term the
Euro-American culture," he said, "is
a large part borrowed from peoples
of different' racial stocks." Advocat-
ing racial cooperation, Dr. Titiev de-
clared that an interchange of ideas
among races has always lei to the
greatest forward spurts of progress.
He explained that we can promote
better cooperation among races in
three ways; by education which in-
cludes the proper perspective in re-
gard to the cultures of Asia and Af-
rica, by the suppression of paid pro-
fessional propagandists who argue
against certain racial groups and by
adopting a more honest and realistic
attitude toward minority problems in
our own country.
