Hospital Notes Pearl Harbor Attack Only 7 Years Ago Tokyo, Dec. 8 —f/I'i—A ridge of years leads back to Pearl Harbor today—and the day (he Japanese would like to forget. Seven years ago crowds ot Japanese stood in amazement on street coroners while newspapers flashed news of the attack. (The attack on Pearl Harbor was Dec. 7 U. S. dale, but Dec. 8 Tokyo timo.l Many Japanese we're hysterically proud the "holy war" had come at last. Some were sad. Others resigned. The rutted streets of Tokyo were crowded again today. The people had a new surprise to discuss amid their talk of high living costs—the Supreme Court of the United Sites had decided to consider whether to hear appeals of their warlords. Last night hundreds of Americans attended a special charity show to raise funds to buy milk for Japanese children. Businessmen in patched overcoats today eagerly discussed the decision of the Far Eastern commission in Washington to let them expand foreign trade—if they can produce the goods to sell. Hawaii was more interested in 'he rescue of 33 air force men from the mid-Pacific than it was in today's seventh anniversary of Penrl Harbor. But from elsewhere came re- "ipmbrances, and strange conci- dences. In Washington Madame Chiang Kai-shek, wife of China's president, issued a statement in re membrance of "this sacred day" , and the dead who "gave their lives for human liberty." She said: "May we, the living, do everything we can to forestall another world war and to prevent further enslavement of mankind."

Harvey Rorie, 45-year-old farmer of near England, pleaded guilty in Jefferson county circuit court yesterday to a charge of first degree murder in the starting of a a I house fire in which the two children died.
