Tokyo Rose Awaits Fate
At San Francisco Trial
SAN FRANCISCO-(IP)-For nine months a slim, slant-eyed girl
called Tokyo Rose has waited in jail here to find out whether the
country of her birth will brand her traitor, or set her free as the
helpless pawn of circumstances.
Iva Ikuko Toguri d'Aquino (her real name) is charged with trea-
son, punishable by death. The lightest sentence she could get if con-
Victed is five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
HER TRIAL STARTED yesterday before Federal Judge Michael
J. Roche. It is expected to last six to eight weeks.
The Fourth of July was her 33rd birthday. Jail attendants
say she is nervous and apprehensive. Her skin seems to stretch
tightly over the bones of her face and rather sharp features.
To many thousands-of service men in the Pacific her voice was a
familiar one, coming over the air on the "Zero Hour" program from
Radio Tokyo.

"HELLO, BONEHEADS, this is Orphan Anne, your favorite en-
Much of it was entertainment stuff, with a lot of music. Uncle
Sam's weary, bored fighters listened. Even Adm. Chester Nimitz got
a grim smile when he learned she had beamed at sweating Sea-Bees
hewing an airfield out of South Pacific island jungle:
"Look out boys, your strip is showing! "
But it's no joke now. The government-in the persons of
special Washington prosecutors Tom De Wolfe, late of Seattle, and
John B. Hogan, ex-Philadelphian, aided by FBI investigators-
aims to prove that Mrs. D'Aquino betrayed the Stars and Stripes
that few protectingly above the little Los Angeles home where she
was born.
The prosecution has assembled 71 witnesses, a score of whom were
flown from Japan. It says it will prove that she was an effective
participant in propaganda radio programs designed, says the indict-
ment, "to undermine American and Allied military morale, create
nostalgia in the minds of the armed forces, create war weariness ...
impair the capacity of the United States to wage war against its

SHE DID THIS "intentionally and traitorously," while owing
allegiance to the United States, the charge continues. Eight overt'acts,
between March, 1944, and July, 1945, are charged. Each states that
she discussed radio programs, broadcast over the air, or prepared
script. Under the Constitution, each overt act must be testified to
by two corroborating witnesses.
The defense, headed by Wayne Collins, will produce some 15
to 20 witnesses, plus the written records of sworn testimony taken
from some 30 persons in Japan, seeking to refute the treason
(1.) Mrs. D'Aquino isn't an American citizen, because she is the
wife of Felipe J. D'Aquinoo, a Portuguese National of three-quarters
Japanese ancestry, and (2) to try now would be double jeopardy, since
she was held in jail more than a year in Japan aid then released by
the U.S. Army.

THE PROSECUTION COUNTERED, largely through preliminary
motions, tha t(1) under the Cable Act women no longer lose their
U.S. citizenship through marriage unless they expatriate themselves in
certain, specified, formal ways. (2) As for double jeopardy, she has
not been tried before.
D'Aquino was quoted as saying that Maj. Charles Cousens of the
Australian Army and Capt. Wallace Ince of the U.S. Army wrote
many of the scripts she broadcast.

Circulation Manager Besieged by Daily Subscribers

Dunham Appointed Head
Of Social Work Institute

Want to buy a Daily,,lodge a
complaint or become a newsboy?
The person to see is Ethel AnnI
Morrison, the summer circulation
manager of The Daily.
PROBABLY one of the most-
complained-to people on campus
during the first week of school,
her life has settled down to a dull
roar now that the paper routes are
straightened out.
Her job includes sales and dis-
tribution, hiring and firing
newsboys, making out paper
routes, pacifying customers, fol-
lowing up changes--of-address,
mailing subscriptions, sending
copies to other schools and, as
she puts it, "miscellany."
Miss Morrison, a speech correc-
tion major from Kenosha, Wis.,
will graduate next February. Per-
sonalized service is part of her
managerial code of ethics.
* * *
"OF COURSE," she said, "if a
subscriber lives on the 18th floor
of a building, and the newsboy
has a couple of hundred other pa-
pers to deliver, 'personalized serv-
ice' may have to be discarded."
Some of her complaints are
rather threatening.
"One complainant called and
irately informed us that we were
taking subscribers' money and
never intended to send the paper.
She wanted names of staff mem-
bers so she could prosecute," Miss
Morrison said.
plained that we delivered his pa-
per 100 feet from his door, and

that since we advertised 'to your
door' delivery, he, too, intended to
sue us, this time for false adver-
tising," Miss Morrison continued.
Subscribers also call in re-
peatedly that they aren't getting
their papers. Actually the pa-

pers are delivered and someone
lifts them from the doorstep be-
fore the rightful owners get to
them. Others get The Daily
without even having subscribed
to it.
"We appreciate complaints be-

cause they are our only way of
checking," Miss Morrison said.
"Criticism and suggestions are our
best means of improving the sys-
"HOWEVER," she added, "we
ask our subscribers not to expect
miracles, since we're very short-
staffed during summed school. We
do our best, but we go to school
In fact, she is the summer cir-
culation staff all by herself,
which involves hours of work.
It is considered unusual for a
woman to be appointed to the
job of circulation manager.
The newsboys Miss Morrison em-
ploys are mostly University stu-
dents but a few are local junior
high boys. They receive a $1 bonus
for each week without a complaint
as an added incentive.
* ~* *
A SCALE is set up whereby they
get less bonus for each complaint,
and over four in a week deducts
from their regular weekly pay-#
Getting subscription salesmen
is one part of Miss Morrison's
job which isn't often difficult.
Many find that selling subscrip-
tions is a good way of getting
'phone numbers early in the
And there are other elements of
humor in her job.
A happy feminine subscriber
commented that one of the editors
was very handsome, and she'd just
as soon have him delivered every
morning with her paper!

Sears Stresses Local Conservation

< I

Problems of conserving natural
resources must be solved by work-
ing out programs tailored to fit
each community or area, accord-
ing to Prof. Paul B. Sears of Ober-
lin College.
Sears spoke last night in the
third lecture of the University's
summer series on "Natural Re-
course in World Affairs." He is
a professor of botany at Oberlin.
* * *
"ALL OF OUR natural resources,
forests; soil, water, wild life, fish
and human beings are tied to-
gether and can't be dealt with sep-
arately," he said.
It does not good to pass laws
or issue orders unless the i-di-
viduals in each community be,

come aware of what a waste of
resources means to their own
area, he declared.
The Oberlin professor added
that "there are certain principles
governing the situation which are
just as binding as the principles
governing the proper design of an
* * *
the laws of conservation of energy,
conservation of materials and the,
laws of organic growth, which, ac-
cording to Sears, must be under-
stood before the problems of pre-
serving natural resources can be
dealt with properly.
The lecture series will con-

tinue tomorrow when Charles E.
Kellogg, chief of the Soil Survey
Division, Bureau of Plant In-
dustry, U.S. Department of Ag-
riculture, speaks at 4:15 p.m. in
Rackham Amphitheatre.
"Food, Forests and People" will
be Kellogg's topic.
A native of Michigan, Kellogg
is the author of "The Soils That
Support Us."

.Bltz Belittles
Importance of
School Grades
Marks are not a necessary in-
centive for learning, according to
Prof. William E. Blatz of the Uni-
versity of Toronto.
A professor of child psychology,
and the director of Toronto's In-
stitute of Child Study, Blatz spoke
last night in the education school's
summer lecture series.
* * *
AS HE SEES IT, "Too frequent-
ly the desire for high marks robs
the. child of the joy he should find
in learning the content of the sub-
ject. Competition is not a whole-
some incentive in school work."
He suggested that "if we
could maintain the interest the
child has in doing rather than
in having done, we would avoid
a lot of the problem cases in our
school rooms."
Blatz charged that adults have
forgotten the child's zest for ac-
tivity and the satisfaction he gets
out of the expenditure of effort.
"As adults we emphasize the end
result and minimize the effort the
child has expended so that the
thrill of achievement is lost to him
in the expectation of the praise for
the finished task," he added.
