Sentence Laval to firing squad PARIS, Oct. 9.—(UJ?)—Pierre Laval, three-time premier of Prance, was sentenced to death in absentia today for betraying his coOntry to the Germans and helping them rivet on .the fetters which kept it in slavery. He will meet his end before a firing squad at Montrogue fortress just outside of Paris, probably before the end of the week. Gen. Charles De Gaulle is certain .to reject any plea for clemency, it was said, and for that reason, it was unlikely the swarthy chief of the Vichy government would make one. (Laval’s attorneys have a n-nounced they will appeal directly to the French government to set aside ihe death sentence and grant a re-trial, according to a British broadcast heard by NBC). His jury took only one hdUr to arrive at its verdict of guilty of both counts—treason and intelligence with the enemy. Under the verdict Laval also was sentenced to national indignity and his fortune —once one of the largest In Franc* —was ordered confiscated. When the judge finished reading the sentence and the court rose, the clerk went .to Laval’s cell to inform him of his fate. Laval heard him through. kip' Premo elected new YMCA president The YMCA held election of new officers its final meeting of the summer term last [edrtesday, and announced to its members ^at at the beginning of the fall term it will 'icially take its place among Trojan or-lizations.

The YMCA is a member of the newly formed council for student activities, which has announced numerous activities for the coming fall term. “The basic functions of the Young Men’s Christian association at Troy is to build Character through activity. Whether it be sports, singing, or worship, this exertion of body and mind strengthens the personality,” commented Le Sieur, “but no organization can help a person who does not come out and participate in these activities; therefore, we urge all men in the organization to cooperate to the fullest extent, and go all-out this fall.” Dave Burnight, YMCA charter president, stated that the organization has passed its period of self-justification successfully, and that under the guiding hand of Le Sieur and the rest of the officers, the Y has come into its own light, and is now ready to clear the activity calendar.
