20 ' Thursday, Feb. 17, 1344 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Records of Spirituals, Hymns Made Iowa City--Negro spirituals and Norwegian hymns form the latest additions to the collection' of religious music being gathered in the University of Iowa's school of religion project. Doctor Marcus Bach of the school of religion and Doctor 'Addison Alspach of the music department recorded hymns at the Norwegian Lutheran church in Decorah last Sunday. At the African Methodist Episcopal church in Cedar Hapids Friday evening, the university, men will make records of the old-time spirituals sung by the Negro congregation. It is likely that the collection soon will include music sung by Indians at the Tama reservation although no date for the visit to this center has been arranged yet Dr. Bach said. ' This project, started more than a year ago, is directed at preserving Iowa's religious heritage. It has the co-operation of the Library of Congress, in which the original recor'd is filed. One record goes to the contributing group and another is kept by the school of religion. About a dozen varied congregations have sung their music for the university men and in many cases interviews with older mem- bers of the groups have been re corded. These include Welsh at Craw fordsville, Czechs at Cedar Rapids Danish at Cedar Falls, Dutch Pella, monks at the abbey of Melleray, near Dubuque; Sw'edisl at Stanton, and Germans a Homestead. Japan Refuses to Negotiate for 3rd Exchange of Nationals Washington, (U.R)--Japan refuse to resume negotiations for a thirc exchange of nationals even thoug her pretext for halting them--al leged bad conditions in Japanes relocation camps here--has been found groundless by neutral in vestigators, it was revealed Wed nesday. The disclosure was made in slate department testimony re leased by the house appropriation committee in recommending a to tal of $231,304,700, or $5,987,00 less than requested by Presiden Roosevelt, to finance the state justice, and commerce depart ments for the 1945 fiscal year. Assistant Secretary of Stat Breckenridge Long, according t the testimony, told the commit tee that disturbances at the Tul Lake, Cal., relocation camp le» Tokyo to break off the indirec talks for the prisoner exchang and to ask the Spanish embass; in Washington to investigate. The neutral Spanish diplomat made the investigation and re ported favorably on treatment at forded internees, but the Japanes still refuse to resume the negotia lions, Long said.

Gigantic Anti-Tank " Ditch Built Along Coast of Denmark London, P) _ Thc Germans have built extensive anti-invasion defenses including a gigantic anti-tank ditch, along the coast- me of Denmark, just over 300 miles across the North Sea from iritam, and have increased the n ? z .' .occupation forces to 7 full divisions, according to reports from the continent. The ditch was described as stretching from Jammer Bay on the northeastern tip of Denmark to a point several hundred miles to the south. Behind the ditch the nazis were said to have erected concrete bunkers and heavy gun emplacements and to have laid extensive mine fields The reports said thousands of workers completed the fortifications this year. Five big -surface airports have been b u i l t north of Jutland anri there are others underground it was said. All fortified areas are banned to the Danes. Fifty thousand German troops were estimated to be stationed at a big camp near Aalborg. 15.000 more on the island of Zealand and about 10,000 on Funen.

It is estimated that thc number of students enrolled in teachers' colleges has decreased from 175 000 to 72,000 in the last 3 years RAIL STOCKS REVIVE BRISKLY Commitments Again Lightened in Afternoon New York, (#}--Rail stocks revived briskly in Thursday's market, after a morning of considerable indecision, and, while scattered industrials followed · with more or less enthusiasm, numerous leaders continued to exhibit a high degree of apathy. Although commitments again were lightened in the forenoon on the idea the railway upswing had run its course, and that other groups had refused to confirm the bulge, thoughts of reinstated gr increased dividends apparently inspired bidders to have another try for a price hoist. Slight irregularity ruled at the opening in slow dealings. Gains running to 2 points or so were well distributed but losers were plentiful at the last. Transfers were around 800,000 shares. Union Pacific touched its best level for J943-44, along with Rustless Iron. Favored were Santa Fe, Southern Pacific, Illinois Central, Atlantic Coast Line, Park Tilford, Evans Products, Chrysler, Sears Roebuck and Douglas Aircraft.

Gillette Opposed to Blanket Authority in Big Fund for UNRRA - Washington, (^ -- Opposition fi-om within both major parties developed in the senate Tuesday over a resolution which 'would authorize $1,350,000,000 for the united nations relief and rehabili^- tation administration (UNRRA ) The resolution, passed by the house, will be taken up by the senate Wednesday with the 16-to-l backing of its foreign affairs committee. Senator Gillette (D.-Iowa) the committeeman who voted against it, said he would oppose giving blanket authority to spend the people s money" on an agency operating outside the control of this country. v "No one is more in sympathy with the objectives of UNRRA than am I," said Gillette. "But we'll only have one vote among 44 nations. I don't like the idea of giving our financial backing to the tune of 51,350,000,000 with no control over it whatsoever." UNRRA is an agreement signed by 44 governments for the relief of liberated Europe and the east Senator Taft (H.-Ohio) said he would offer an amendment specifying that the financial authorization be cancelled if UNRRA's charter is changed from its present form without congressional agreement. lowan Home After 3 Years of War, Army Duty; Gives Views Des Moines, (JP)-- After 3 years of war and army duty, including distinguished participation in the North African and Italian campaigns, Lt. Col. Edward Bird, 29, came home to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William C. Bird, Monday. Colonel Bird wore the Silver Star for gallantry in leading his men against a strong nazi force at Sened, Tunisia. Two fingers o£ his right hand are missing. They were lost when he became the target of a German machine gun nest when he went beyond an outpost for reconnoisance purposes in Italy. The young officer, in an interview,, expressed these views: The European war will end '·late this year" but we face heavy losses' in the coming months. The morale of American troops high. American doctors and nurses at :ront line hospitals and those at :he rear are doing wonders in caring for wounded men. The British arc real fighters. ''The folks at home surely nrcn't doing too much by buying all of the war "bonds they can or raising all of the food that is hu- nanly possible when you consider he American wounded -- men with amis and'legs shot off--or men blinded." The reunion with his parents was the first since he left for :amp Claiborne, La., in 1941. After 15 days at home Colonel Bird will return to Schick hospital at Clinton where doctors will work on the remaining 2 fingers on his right hand. Ft.
