Final plans to solo University stu-l

The purpose of the new training
unit is to encourage more University
students, particularly coeds, to parti-
cipate in the Club's activities and in
the intercollegiate flying meets which
are held throughout the school year.
If enough student interest is
shown, the Flying Club plans to oper-
ate its own ship next fall at half
price rates for members. Anyone
enrolled in the University and a mem-
ber of the Flying Club is eligible to
apply for the course and no previous
training or knowledge is necessary.'
A 1938 Model Taylor Cub will be
used and the schedule will fulfill the
government's requirement of eight
hours of instruction in basic maneu-
vers, at the completion of which the
student will be permitted to solo. CAA

question in relation to the social and
economic system. Stressing the dan-
ger to democracy caused by the loss
of purchasing power by a great see-
'on of the population and the con-
sequent mass suffering, he declared,
"I don't want to -see people driven
to desperation until they accept any
'jom' offered them."
"When you get out into the world
and go into your professions you will
find it is a lot easier to be on the
side of property and conservatism
than on the side of the dispossessed,"
he told the crowd. "That's where the
money is."
He expressed the hope students
would interest themselves in social
and economic facts and in the soci-
ety they live in, but remarked that
"not all of your professors are aware
of these facts."
He praised the policy of President
Roosevelt directed toward coopera-
tion with other democratic nations
to prevent war, and said that "the
ideas of George Washington on neu-
trality are as far out of date as his
ideas on slavery."
Mayio Keynotes
Albert Mayio, 3, editorial director
Af The Daily and chairman of the
All-CampustPeaceCommittee, gave
an introductory talk, keynoting the
meeting with the declaration that
"fascism is the most imminent prob-
lem of today, depression and insecur-
ity notwithstanding." He pointed out
the necessity for maintaining democ-
racy in order to solve the social and
economic problems whic hare facing
our country.
At the conclusion of the meeting,
Mayio read a resolution declaring
"support of President Roosevelt's steps
to preserve America's peace and
security by denying the use of our
economic resources to aggressors and
by uniting the peaceful nations of
the world against further seizures
by the fascist powers."
Referring to "the lesson this coun-
try learned in the World War fought
to preserve democracy" speakers for1
the Anti-War Strike held yesterday
morning stressed the futility of fight-
ing fascism by cooperating with such
imperialistic European countries as
Britain and France before an audi-
ence of over 200.
Demand Action
The way to stop Hitler is not by
working with such sham defenders
of democracy as Chamberlain and'
Daladier, declared Leonard Wood-
cock, author and lecturer. Hitler, he
added, is working toward his own
destruction, as he seizes more terri-
tory and brings more alien peoples
under his rule. These people are not
placidly accepting their lot but are
working steadily for liberty, Wood-
cock said. America must lend her aid
to these people, these true democrats
and not to the European munition
Explaining his lack of faith in. them
democracies of today, he pointed to
the actions of England and France
in stifling the Weimar Republic in
the years following the war, to the
part Czechoslovakia played in over-
throwing the liberal regime in Hun-
gary. Why should we help these na-
tions now, he asked, when they
brought their present plight upon
them clves.
Pickerill Talks
Rev. H. L. Ficker;ll, director of the
Disciples' Guild presented-..the..views
of a man who had fought in the last
war and has come to feel that such a
war accomplishes nothing. Under the
present circumstances of war, he
pointed out, we never know what we

are fighting for, the victor is alb
ways ultimately defeated and the ,at-
titudes following war prevent a jua
In the last war, he explained,
people were ignorant of the activi-
ties of Colonel House and Walter
Page; they didn't know . that they
were fighting in a large measure to
preserve the two million dollar loan
to the allies. The United States didn't
know that the allies had split up the
spoils and had prevented the chance
of effecting a sensible peace.
The only reason nations go to war
is to take somethings to which they
have no moral and legal right, stated
William Muehl, '41; Advocating the
adoption of the Ludlow amendment
which provides for a vote before this
country could declare war, he said
that the present policy of leaving
such a decision up to the President
is a dangerous one. He also declared
himself against continuation of in-
creasing armaments since such a
policy, he said, will mean a war of

it would be extremely difficult for
neighbors of the powerful German
Reich to reply affirmatively to such
a question.
Information reaching France, these
sources said, indicated that Hitler
would use replies from these gov-
ernmhents to fling back' at President
Roosevelt when the Fuehrer speaks
to the Reichstag April 28.
Through German ambassadors and
ministers, these sources said, Berlin
not only has asked the various gov-
ernments bordering Germany if they
believed their independence - was
threatened by the Reich but also if
they had asked Mr. Roosevelt to
It was said the Fuehrer probably
would use any negative replies to chal-

clare that the states which he would
