Jap Gets Life Term,
Doing Army Sergeant
Out of Hangman's Job
•y Hi* Associated Press
i TOKYO, Dec. 11. — There’s an
jArmy sergeant back in St. Louis
! who’s going to be mighty unhappy
because a United States military
| tribunal spared the life of the Jap
anese prison commandant he volun
teered to hang.
The Japanese who recently es
caped the gallows is Capt. Yoshio
Tsuneyoshi, convicted of conducting
j a reign of blood, torture and star
vation which sent 1,400 men to their
!graves from ghastly Camp O’Don
nell in the Philippines, after the
death march from Bataan.
The sergeant is George H. De
Lapp, who clung desperately to life
I in the camp. Even after he got
home, he couldn't forget Tsuneyoshi
—the man the prisoners knew as
Little Hitler, Little Napoleon, or
just plain balloon pants.
Sergt. De Lapp wrote a letter
to the Allied headquarters legal
section in Tokyo. He said he was
sure Little Hitler would be hanged.
He said frankly he wanted to come
to Japan to put the hood on him,
fix the noose, and pull the han
dle “to send him to hell.”
But Tsuneyoshi drew a lifetime
rpll—a fart Tuhirh has railRPfi nr>
| ticeable disappointment among
other Camp O’Donnell survivors
with the Aimy in Japan today,
j “If he'd been tried right after
the war . . .” began one; “maybe
! two years has sort of softened
j things. . . .”
Just a week earlier another Japa
nese commandant from the Philip
pines got a life sentence. He was
Lt. Col. Shiegeji Mori of the in
famous Cabanatuan Camp, -a class
mate of wartime Premier Hldeki
Tojo. My his orders, American
prisoners were slaughtered until
the total toll from butchery and dis
ease rose to J,100.
Two American officers impris
oned in the camps worked tirelew
ly to build cases against the two
Japanese. They were Capt. 8. J.
Gladys, Inglewood, Calif., from
' Cabanatuan, and Lt. Sheldon H.
Mendelson, Brooklyn, N. Y„ who en
Head Hung on Gate.
“Mori ordered the head of a Fili
pino paraded through Cabanatuan
Camp and then hung on its main
gate under an ‘American sympa
thizer’ sign, and all passing Filipi
nos were forced to alight from carts,
read the sign, bow and pass on,"
Capt. Gladys testified.
Americans were put in groups of
10 and if one tried to escape the
other nine were summarily slain,
he added. Mori turned judo experts
loose on three officers and “they
broke the men’s bones."
Capt. Gladys now is a graves
registration officer in Manila, hunt
ing bodies of men sent out of Caba
nation in a labor gang—men who
never came back.
Lt. Mendelson testified that when
"we were dragged into O'Donnell
from the death march, Tsuneyoshi
stood there hating us all and said
‘You are Americans but I choose to
grant you life.’ Then he had each
man searched and any found with
Japanese money, fans or other
souvenirs was killed.’’
