Japanese Sub On Display In City

Somewhat behind previously-announced schedules, the two-man Japanese submarine captured at Pearl Harbor was expected to arrive in Ann Arbor from Jackson about 3:45 or 4 o’clock this afternoon on its nationwide War Bond tour.

This change in time meant the parade probably would start about 4 o’clock or 4:15, with the submarine set up for exhibition on N. Fourth Ave. opposite the courthouse about 5 o’clock, City War Bond Chairman Fred E. Benz said today. It will be on exhibit there until 10 o’clock tonight.

Elsewhere on its nationwide tour, which began in San Francisco last fall, spectators have been admitted to the catwalks, installed for display purposes on the sides of the sub, by purchase of War Bonds or Stamps. But for its Ann Arbor visit this requirement has been waived, and no “admission” will be charged.

However, War Bonds and Stamps will be sold at booths near the sub while it is on display, and to each bond purchased today will be affixed a special commemorative stamp reading, "Saw Sub— Sank Same.”

Special portholes, cut in by the U. S. Navy, give a full view of the sub’s interior.
