It was evident they were handled with dispatch and probably jnili tai-y crispness. This is the kind of treatment, (he warlords understood, although most of thorn long ago lost their military bearing. In tho closing days of the trial only To.jo and Muto among the seven condemned held to their military rigidity of manner. Matsui, tho Nanking command or. shook with palsy. General Kimura, who has been described as "closest to Tojo" in tho last days in prison, walked with a stoop. Itagaki. once tho sardonic string nullar of Manchuria, hunched. Doihara, the master plotter, seemed lo shrivel. Hirota. the : former, premier and the only civilian among the condemned, had become a gnarled old man. At 70, he was the oldest to die. These characteristics probably dominated the final bearing of the men marching to the gallows. Newspapermen kept a chilly vigil outside the gates of Sugamo, which is a few miles from down town Tokyo. Alert young American soldiers guarded the gates. Tokyo slept and the majority of the people will not know about the executions until later this morning.

Sfs Baked in Because e V/ednesday, December 22, 1948 Compromise to Go Phone Union St. Louis, Dec. 22 --i,Ti—A compromise arbitration proposal by three federal conciliators in an effort to halt a threatened ;,t.-ike of Southwestern Bell Telephone company employes will be passed on by the company and the employes union at noon today. H came at the end of a session which recessed at 2:4.1 a.m. today and was made by Anton E. Johnson. Nicholas iVI. [•'iilo ;UK( H. ••. Griffith, regional director of the fedora) mediation ana coix.-iliation service. Since" no progress was reported last night in negotiation talus on wage issues, this attempt lo br'ni" both sides together in hopes of preventing a pro-Christinas disruption of telephone service may bo the final one. A strike of the union's 50,000 members would affect Bell Tele phone subscribers in Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas. Kansas and Texas. This is (lie proposal: One company man and one union man would bo named to a board of arbitration. They would select a third man to be chairman. If no agreement ws rep'-hod on the chairman in six days, then the conciliation service would n.,,i' .1 five-man panel. The company would strike off two, the union two, and the remaining man would be chairman. This group would have five days to hear arguments from both sides. Any decision "with a reasonable time' 'would be final and binding. Frank S. Lonergan, vice-president of division 20 of the Commu |iiications '"orkcrs of America, de jchned comment when advised of Mile proposal. If the union reject's the proposal. a strike would be imminent. T-onergan said the hour has been i set lor the strike but it has not yet 'been disclosed (o Gus Cramer, 'un ion officer who will serve as gencr iiil strike director here. ' Strike headquarters for St. Louis have been set up in the Roosevelt hotel here in charge of Joseph j.Maid win, a local union officer. j Everett K. Cotter, union counsel said last night "the situation is .'deteriorating rapidly." 1 During one break in negotiation li'lks last night, Lonergan emerged jlrom the conference room to say ; "when w" recessed Monday night, it seemed wo were nearly ready to ! get Hi is thing settled, but today we •'are not that close." | T./enorgan said the stalemate re suHs chiefly from wage issues. A company official said the man i agemont has made an offer which I would raise the average wage in i crease offered but declined to give 'details. The union is asking an avern^o ooosi of 15 cents an hour, or S6 weekly wage for all workers. Tho .company's offer ranges from $2 for !2«.009 workers lo Sfi for ],727 em I ploycs. an hourly increase of 0.5 I cents. ! Not Rubbery i A rubber tree is no more limber | than any other tree.

S. .military government court today l to clear Mrs. Wilma Ybarbo of charges of killing her husband "so i she and her litlie boy can enjoy I this Christmas." : Stanley H. Gaines of Brooklino. i Mass., lawyer for Mrs. Ybarbo, I said she acted in self-defense in i shooting her American soldier Hits I band. Sgt. John Ybarbo of Goliad. I Tex, Pointing at Mrs. Ybarbo, 23 year old mother from Maiden, Mass., Gaines declared: j "This girl was afraid. Her bus- jband was beating her up. She was 'under attack. He was a tough hombrc. He had beaten her brutal ly before. Twice he had threatened jto kill her. She had reason to bo afraid." The court of three American judges retired to begin deliberating on the judgment. It will announce the finding tomorrow afternoon i£ the judges are agreed by that time. It will be the first judgment ever pronounced on an American worn an charged with murder in oc cupied Germany. Worth D. McCaulcy, chief mili |tary government attorney, asked the court to base its decision on Anglo American common law, which he said should be applied to Americans in ' Germany, even under military occupation. McCauley's request that the find ing be based on AngloAmerican law finally ruled out a death sen tenee. The court had ruled even before the defense began that pre meditation had not been proved. Gaines painted a dramatic pic turo of an abused woman, helpless before a brutal mate. Gaines called the court's atten lion to the fact that ".she has at tempted none of the cheap theatrics used b^' so many woman in .her. position. ' He pointed out she did not try for sympathy by bringing /into court her six-year-old son Jimmy. She admitted in her tcsti mony telling her husband the night of the shooting Jimmy was not'his child. .,' .
