Aug. 30.—"Die gigantic military machine of the Japanese empire has been completely de stroyed and the last remnants of her military forces are streaming home to a nation in the throes ol reconversion to democratic and peaceful ways of life, Gen. MacAr thur's headquarters reported today. Exactly one year ago today, ap proximately 17,000 American sol diers. Marines and sailors spear headed the peaceful occupation of Japan. They faced a people who suddenly had been plunged into a defeat for which they had not been prepared. Since that hot, cloudy day. a headquarters spokesman announced, approximately 4,000,000 Japanese troops in the home islands and 2,500,000 abroad have been disarmed and their weapons destroyed. In addition, 2,000,000 civilians have been returned home from overseas “For magnitude, thoroughness, speed and precision,' this has con stituted a demobilization and re patriation which has no precedent in history,” the spokesman declared. The wartime industry of Japan has been seized, business monopolies have been broken and democratic forms of government have been in stituted in this process of liquidat-, ing Japan’s war machine, the j spokesman said, adding: “Rapid strides have been made in reshaping the Japanese government to conform to principles inherent in a democratic state. * * * The av erage Japanese no longer crings in the presence of the police or other public authority, his home has be come his castle, he registers his opinion on public issues, * • • he enjoys the right of assembly and petition, he worships as he chooses, • * * he enjoys the untrammeled right individually or collectively to demand correction of unjust labor practices, * * * electoral discrimi nation has been removed * * | The new constitution is designed to place sovereignty squarely in the hands of the people, “upon whom it bestows a full measure of human freedom,” the spokesman said. He pointed to the election of 35 women in the Diet last April 10 as “an ac complishment without precedent in political history.” Japs in Nanking Used Dogs to Kill Chinese By the Associated Press TOKYO, Aug. 30.—Victory-crazed Japanese troops in North China threw helpless Chinese to starving police dogs, which tore the victims to shreds, the War Crimes Tribunal heard today. “I saw them bitten to death,” said an affidavit taken from Cheng Ting kiang, now a war crimes judge in China. His testimony was introduced by the prosecution to show that the infamous “rape of Nanking” in 1937 was not the only Japanese victory orgy in China, that it extended into the remotest provinces. Twenty thousand women and girls attacked, ‘‘thousands of inno cent civilians” mowed down by mass machine gun fire and bodies left to rot in the streets for a month were some of the gruesome details of the Nanking episode described to the tribunal. Ponds throughout Nanking's in ternational area were filled with bodies which the Japanese would not allow to be buried, a German Embassy clerk. W. Maier, said in a statement made one week after the city fell. A report from United States Am bassador Nelson T. Johnson on May 1, 1938, to the State Department, which was presented to the court said the Japanese systematically murdered any one suspected of hav ing served in the Chinese Army. He estimated that “well over 20,000 have been executed in this manner.” New 6fh Division Post To Meet Here Sunday Potomac Sector No. 8, newly or ganized post of the National Asso ciation of the 6th Division, will meet at 3 p.m. Sunday at the American Legion C1Ub’ 2437 Fifteenth street First election of officers and adop tion of a constitution will constitute business of the meeting, and mem bers will honor Clarence A.

(Si F. DICKINSON LETTS, Justice (Seal) Attest: CHARLES 1. 8TEWART. Clerk. By ELLA MCDONALD,! Deputy Clerk. au30,»e6,13. Walter Reed Explains Delay in Announcing McReytiolds' Death In delaying the announce ment of the death of former Associate Justice James C. Mc Reynolds of the Supreme Court, Walter Reed Hospital officials followed a general procedure . used in withholding informa tion about the death of Army personnel until relatives were notified. The Nation, therefore, did not know until 9 a.m. last Sunday that a former Supreme Court Justice had died at 9:25 p.m. Saturday. Col. Charles R. Mueller of Hie office of the chief of medi cal service at the hospital ex plained today the hospital did not delay the announcement specifically because of that rule. Officials decided to notify relatives first and believed that a complete statement of the death could not be prepared in time for Sunday morning news paper publication, he said. U. 5. to Retain Control Of Jap Bases Until Mandates Are Drawn By the Associated Press The United States plans to retain its exclusive custody of the Pacific bases wrested from the Japanese until a detailed plan for interna tional administration of all man dated territory has been perfected, the State Department said yesterday. Lincoln White, department press officer, told reporters the matter will be taken to the United Nations eventually but denied that this country plans to lay before the Gen eral Assembly next month a plan for administration of the former Japanese territories by the proposed U. N. trusteeship council which is still to be created. Senator Magnuson, Democrat, of Washington had reported such a plan. He said he understood the United States would ask U. N. for sole trusteeships next month over the former Japanese bases and man dated territory. Officials of four departments— State, War, Navy and Interior—have struggled with problems of the islands’ future for months. There are differences on several questions in volved, but. general agreement was reported on the basic principle that this country should insist on sole supervision over strategic bases deemed essential to American se curity. The United States Trusteeship Council, under this plan, would be authorized to inspect the adminis tration of civilian problems outside I the strategic military bases.

He said this country should retain a chain of air bases stretching across the Pacific, and including the Car olines and the Marshalls. In addition, he expressed belief ' the United States will have to raise with U. N.—or with Russia in direct negotiation—the question of obtain ing air rights ovrt- the Soviet ocupied Kuriles to protect American air routes in the Pacific.
