Exceeds Fascist Might
(Continued from Page 1)
Czechoslovakia by a close military
alliance, boasts the largest standing
military force in the world. The Red
Army is composed of 52 divisions, in-
cluding five of cavalry, and numbers
960,000 men on a peace footing, .c-
cording to the World Almanac. Its
war-time strength would probably be
normally in excess of 3,500,000 men,
nearly twice that of the probable Ger-
man first-line war-time force, while
an equal number of trained reserves
are available. The problem, however,
will be to bring this gigantic force
into action, since Russia and Ger-
many have no common frontier. Po-
land, whose military force is com-
posed of a standing army of about
270,000 and about 60,000 auxiliary
troops, stands between Germany and
Russia both geographically and dip-
Jonatically, occupying a, position
somewhat analagous to that of Italy
in 1914.
Italy itself, in spite of a possible
change of direction asp a result 'of
German-Austrian anschluss, stands
at present with Germany. The Ital-
.ian army is divided like the French
into Metropolitan and Colonial forces.
The former is composed of 31 infantry
and tlh-ee cavalry divisions, slightly
more than 500,000 men in peacetime.
Th1 Colonial Army numbers '05000,
while the special corps of Carabin-
ieri musters another 50,000. Italians
are kept on the reserve list longer
than any other country's citizens, al-
though regular and post-service train-
ing is shorter, thus furnishing Italy
with a large trained reserve. The
number of Italian troops in Ethiopia,
Libya and Spain is uncertain, but
probably more than one-fourth of the
whole Fascist effective force is away
from home.
Up-to-date figures for air strength
are not available, and unofficial esti-
mates are very approximate. The Red
air Fleet of Soviet Russia is regarded
as -the, largest in Europe, and is ex-
pected to utilize Praha, the Czech
capital, as a base of operations against
Germany. The French and German

The show, "entirely different" from
former spring concerts, will be divided

Prof. David Mattern of the School

in attendance; Saginaw, and Jackson

it cast its lot unequivocally with the
democracies, the latter will enjoy a
decisive advantage in air strength, as
well as the certainty of predominant

EACH year since 1930 the utilities
of Michigan have led the entire
nation in the number of farms elec-
trified. In the last eight years, the
number of farms served by THE
tripled. Here is the record:

customers, the Company built 1,497
iniles of farm line.
To farm families, electricity is
even more important than to city
dwellers, for on the farm electricity
shoulders many burdens that city
people never carry. Electricity per-
forms over 100 tasks for the farm
and the farm home. It eliminates
much drudgery from farm life. For
10 or 15 cents a day, electricity per-
forms such tasks as pumping and
carrying water, the back-breaking
labor of' washday, cooking, grind-
