Maj. Tisdelle to Testify in Homma’s Trial Maj. A. C. Tisdelle, whose story of his experiences in Japanese prison camps appeared serially in The Tribune last November, has been ordered to Manila, P. I., by air to testify in the trial of Lt. Gen. Masaharu Homma, the Jap commander blamed for the “death march” from Bataan. Maj. Tisdelle was aide de camp of Maj. Gen. Edward P. King, commander of the American forces on Bataan, and was with the general at the surrender ceremony. In his story published by The Tribune, Tisdelle told how Gen. King set aside trucks to transport his soldiers out of Bataan, but these were not used by the Japs despite a promise by Gen. Homma’s chief of staff. Prior to the war, Maj. Tisdelle was in the advertising business in Chicago. Recently he has been stationed in Washington, D. C.
