AURORA MASON, NEWARK, wy framework of the proposed court. Reliable sources here reported that President Roosevelt and Secretary of State Cordell Hull might select Glueck or another prominent American legal expert to act as consulting adviser to the court when it is constituted. Allied authorities, desiring to avoid the situation which arose after the last war, when designated war criminals escaped without trial, want the war criminal court for this war to be set up well in advance, with a carefully drafted code of international law, so that it will be ready to function as soon aa the war ends. Experts have been studying plans for months. Several Allied governments already have drawn up lists of war criminals, including Hitler, Mussolini, Heinrich Himmler, chief of the German Gestapo; Vidkun Quisling, the Norwegian traitor, and Pierre Laval and Jacques Doriot, collaborationist leaders, of France. 12,000,000 Victims Dedaer told the United Press that there were from 10,000,000 to 12,000,000 potential victims of German war criminals inside Germany alone for whom the Germans would have to answer to the Allies in addition to those in occupied countries. The court should be established and start its preliminary work as soon as possible," he said, "so that when the war ends It can start work smoothly and swiftly." Dedaer said that the Allies wanted to punish war criminals so as to deter future aggression. He said that it must be recognized that many persons who might bp classed as war criminals had acted under duress and that, therefore, the possibility of reform .hrough correction and education must not be overlooked. Further, ie said, the masses of Axis peoples must be separated from their rulers and militarists. Dedaer urged actual occupation of Prussia after the war in order to et at the real source of German aggression. Prof. Glueck himself has drafted war criminal program which the nternatlonal assembly here is considering, llueck's Program The GiUeck program has 10 oints: Trial and punishment of war criminals must be an integral p a r t i f peace terms. Axis nations must be compelled to surrender crim- nals as a prerequisite of cessation f hostilities. Lists of criminals and evidence against them should be kept up to late during the war. Peace terms must compel the surrender of Axis archives to aid he prosecution and any who destroy such records must be pun- shed. National civilian and military courts In occupied countries should ry most offenders for crimes committed in those countries. This ivould apply especially to such men as Quisling, Laval, Doriot and members o/ the German'Gestapo. A non-military i n t e r n a t i o n a l court should be set up and iU jurisdiction should extend to crimes committed outside Axis territory. The court should be provided now with a code of Internal ional criminal Jaw, defining "war crimes and prescribing punishment. Axis chiefs of state should be specifically liable to punishment. Allied military forces should act as police to arrest and hold war criminals and extradition treaties Private Staked Out His Claim And Shot Jap AT A NEW GUINEA BASE-- By moonlight on tha Buna front, Vincent J. RU«BO, private first class, watched a Japanese sniper don his camouflage and install himself in a tree overlooking the American positions. During the night Pvt.

Bat he quietly pushed a stake In the ground in line with the sniper's tree and this morning at daylight he took a betTd on the sniper's now well-concealed hide-out and knocked him to the ground. should prevent the escape of criminals to neutral countries. International court procedure should be a simplified combination of British and American procedure. Punishment of war criminals should conform to punishment meted for similar crimes in. prosecuting countries.

Eaton, who spent many year* publishing the Civil War photographs taken by Matthew B. Brady, died here yesterday in a home for convalescents where he had lived for two years. His age was 71. 'Mr. Eaton became Interested In the Brady pictures In 1907, when he saw examples of the pioneer cameraman's work in the home of the late John C. Taylor, a Hartford Civil War veteran. He purchased some of these, and founded with Herbert C. M,yrick of Springfield, the Patriot Publishing Company. In 1909 he published an album of Brady pictures, thereby precipitating a wide controversy, some persons contending that It would have been impossible to take such pictures -under battle conditions and that they must have been posed. Brady himself had died before that time. Later, the Review of Reviews, in co-operation with Mr. Eaton, asked people all over the country to come cepted as a flight instructor for the Army and the second one in the United States. She is n product of the Vega Aircraft school and already has served as instructor to civilian pilots. Start* 145-Mile Hike To Get Into the Army ALBANY ( D P ) -- D o n « l d B.
