6,500,C J Jap Troops
Completely Disarmed,
MacArthur Reports
By tha Associated Press
TOKYO. 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.”

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.”

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.
Senator Magnuson • told reporters
he does not believe there would be
; "a single vote” in the United Na-j
I tions against giving this country sole
trusteeships in the Pacific area"
“The Pacific is fundamentally our
responsibility.” he maintained. 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.
