Reports on the testimony given by "Prof. Hyoe Oichi of the Imperial University of Tokyo" who stated that "one of the purposes of military training in Japanese schools was the domination of the world." Oichi spent 11 months in custody which the defense tried to prove was a result of Communist activities. Oichi offered a picture of how professors were supposed to teach Japanese students, including the fact that "the idea of world domination was 'woven into Japanese education." Also testifying was Prof. Yukitaki Takikawa of Kyoto University.
