[relevant article text] Nanking’s Rape to Be Recounted Tokyo, Apr. 10 (UP) – The full documented story of the infamous Rape of Nanking y the Japanese in 1937 probably will be given to the world for the first time at the trial of top-ranking Japanese war criminals, information gathered by two members of the prosecution team indicated today. Col. Thomas R. Morrow and David Nelson Sutton have completed a four-week tour of China, visiting Shanghai, Peiping, Chungking and Nanking and on occasions interviewing as many as 120 eye-witnesses in a single day. They now are returning to Tokyo with “hundreds” of documents. The trials will start on or about May 15.
