Gen. To-moyuki Yamashita, condemned Japanese leader. The war department announcement said General Douglas MacArthur had been notified of the president's decision. Undersecretary of War Kenn-eth C. Rovall had told MacArthur not to carry nut the death sentence against the erstwhile ‘ Tiger of Malaya'’ pending presidential action. Back to General President Truman's decision apparently had the effect of putting V amshita s fate again in General MacArthur^ hands. The supreme court last Monday upheld the military commission which convicted Yamashita of condoning atrocities in the Phil-. ippines. Vamashita was sentenced to death on the gallows. The war department announcement said: ‘The war department has been advised, that the president will ta ne no action on the petition for clemency field by counsel for Lt Gen. Tomovuki Yamashita. Gen-MacArthur has been given1 this information.’' MacArthur earlier this week re- i viewed and affirmed Yamashita’s I recent conviction by a Manila military tribunal on charges of responsibility for atrocities in the : Philippines. Y amashita’s plea was filed by j his denfense councel, the war department disclosed last night, ad-1 ding that it already had been sent I to the White House. It was ac-companied by an opposing statement from prosecuting councel. ! which Mr. Truman also will study. . JnTok>° Col. A. C. Carpenter, I cruel of headquarters’ legal prose-1 cut mn section, emphasized; It is pur* Iv a clemency mat-i ter—not a review of tho case. He (Mr Truman) can grant eminency if he desires, just as in the case of an American citizen.” It was 5 amashita’s second ap-T*al to Washington. Before his conviction was upheld bv MacArthur he sought unsuccessfully to nave the U. S. sftpreme court intervene in his case.

Mr. Truman’s plan for cutting American wheat consumption also drew Questioning comment from other lawmakers unenthusiastic about the dark bread it will mean on the nation’s menu. Landon Assails Plan Landon. 1936 Republican nominee for president, stepped into the incipient debate bv attributing the food situation in Germany, at least, to what he temped the “cruel and inhuman” plan formulated by former Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau for treatment of the conauered reich. In New York. Morgenthau, said:    “I recommend that Mr Landon buy a copy of my book and read it. He obviously doesn’t know what he is talking about.
