Reports on the upcoming trial of Masaaki Mibuchi and Jutaro Kikuchi, both of whom were "accused of beheading and bayoneting 2nd Lt. Darwin T. Emry, Denver, Colo., B-29 bombardier whose plan crashed after the great Tokyo raid of last May 25." The article (from the Pacific Stars and Stripes) indicates that the trial will be unique because the case will rest solely upon testimony from Japanese witnesses "rather than on affidavits and other documents."
