New Campus
Site Obtaiued
ByToronto 'U'
Use of War Plant
Relieves Crow ding
A new campus, 26 miles from the
Queen's Park site of the University
of Toronto, has provided a partial
answer to their problem of student
To ,accomplish this required the
transformation of a gigantic war
plant to an engineering school where
first year courses have already been
given to surne 1,200 students.
At Ajax, on the shores of Lake On-
tario, a new experiment in education
has W}egun. More than a war plant,
Ajax is a self-contained community
comprising some 600 houses, a central
heating plant, stories, fire-hall, post-
office, and other facilities. Here the
opportunity is offered to gain actual
experience in the administration of
civil affairs. Social responsibility has
become a new subject on the univer-
sity calendar.
Designed To Hold 7,000
Toronto was designed originally to
accomnmodate not more than 7,000
student, allowing adequatehfacilities.
The return of veterans in the fall of
1945 lifted this figure to 10,000 with
applications still pouring in. With
student bodies across Canada already
double the pre-war figures, added
space had to be acquired if no appli-
cant were to be refused.
At Ajax, a shell-filling plant which
had sent over 25 million shells to the
fighting fronts during four years of
war,had rapidly assumed the ap-
pearance of a ghost town following
V-E Day. This site was chosen in
preference to neigh~boring training
stations to be an addition to the
University. The job of establishing
laboratories and classrooms for the
.first group of 1,200 freshman engi-l
neers was a bold undertaking, andl
was barely completed when they ar-
rived early in January.
Cafeteria Provided
This new campus has been made1
complete in every way. A cafeteria4
capable of serving 1,500, a men's
recreational center, and numerous1
sports facilities already have been1
provided. Although six times- the size
of, the home campus, Ajax is still
"small," but growing fast. Next fallt
will find some 4,000 first and secondt
year engineers studying at Toronto'si
lakeside addition.1

New Silver Bill
WASHINGTON, July 13--(P)--The
Senate late today removed the silver
price controversy from the Treasury-
Postoffice Supply Bill and passed a
separate bill calling for the sale of
the Treasury's surplus silver, at 90.3
cents per ounce.
The action was taken in an effort
to break a long deadlock with the
House, which insisted on a silver
sale price of 71.11 cents an ounce,
and which put this stipulation into
the supply bill as a rider. Each
chamber has repeatedly refused to
recede from itsproposed silver sale

rallies were slated at Jackson and
The demonstrations, scheduled for
Tuesday afternoon, were instigated
in labor union circles, but in Detroit
many other organizations were add-
ing their support.
Richard T. Leonard, CIO United
Auto Workers vice-president and
chairman of the rally, said that
among those joining his and other
unions in the protests are the De-
troit Association of Women's Clubs,
the Detroit Council of Churches,
the American Association of Uni-
versity Women, the Detroit Teach-
ers Association, and the League of
Cathelic Wonien.
A crowd of "at least 200,000" was
expected to jam Cadillac Square and
a nationally prominent speaker was
being sought.
Leonard said that this "is the first
time in the history of Michigan that
every labor organization known has
combined forces to present such a

he added, "are groups which never
before have appeared side by side
with labor in any demand."

With No Atom
Air Supremacy-
Cause of surrender
WASHINGTON, July 13-A com-
mission which studied bombing ef-
fects and other factors told Presi-
dent Truman today that Japan cer-
tainly would have surrendered before
the end of 1945 even without the
atomic bomb, Russia's entry into the
war or any Allied invasion plans.
Asserting that air supremacy was
"the major factor which determined
the timing of Japan's surrender," the
U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey had
this to say on other points, in a re-
port to the President:
Helped Peacemaking
The atomic bomb-brought "fur-
ther urgency and lubrication" to
peacemaking machinery.
Russia's entry-'"neither defeated
Japan nor materially hastened the
accbptance of surrender."
Invasion Threat #
The invasion threat-"anticipated
landings were even viewed by the
military with hope that they would
afford a means of inflicting casual-
ties sufficiently high to improve their
chances of a negotiated peace."
Some Japanese leaders recognized
as early as the spring of 1944 that
"Japan was facing ultimate defeat,"
said the report made public today by
the White House.
Political Structure Hindrance
"The time lapse between military
impotence and political acceptance
of the inevitable might have been
shorter," the report said, "had the
political structure of Japan per-
mitted a more rapid and decisive de-
termination of national policies.
"It seems clear, however, that air
supremacy and its exploitation over
Japan proper was the major factor
which determined the timing of Ja-
pan's surrender and obviated any
need for invasion."
Report by Staff
The report summarized the find-
ings of a staff of 1,150 civilians and
Army and Navy officers and enlisted
men who started work in Japan in
September, 1945, weeks after Japan's
fall. Headed by Franklin D'Olier,
former national commander of the
American Legion, the 12-member
survey earlier studied and reported
on the effects of the aerial attack on
By questioning more than 700 Ja-
panese military, government and in-
dustrial officials and translating
many documents, the survey put to-
gether a narrative report of "Japan's
struggle to end the war."
