Heavy Blows
On All Fronts,
In Seandinavia
Are Reported
Pitched Battle Is Indicated
At Steinkjer; Haakon

Sweden Claimed
To Be Threatened,

1000 Teachers Arrive

To Start Official Sessions Tomorrow

(By the Associated Press )
Allied and Norwegian forces fough
back at attacking German units or
an inland Norway battle front Wed
nesday night while the belligeren
governments made renewed claims o:
heavy blows dealt the enemy by land
and sea and from the air. '
Reports on the-Norway land fight-
ing, through Stockholm, told of a
pitched battle at Steinkjer, 50 mile
northeast of Trondheim, where re-
inforced German battalions met and
beat back Allied and Norwegiar
troops Steinkjer was reported in Ger-
man hands, but the Nazis' opponents
were said to be still holding many im-
portant positions north of the town.
Hamlet Is Bombarded
The picturesque fjord Hamlet was
a shell of a town, blasted by artil-
lery and air bombardment.
Norway's king, Haakon VII, flung
defiance at Germany from his secret
headquarters, declaring in a pro-
clamation addressed to the President
of the Norwegian Supreme Court
that "There is no basis for negotia-
tion" between the Norwegian govern-
ment and the Reich.
The king declined to give recogni-
tion to the new administrative coun-
cil formed in German-held Oslo.
Up north at Narvik the situation
was reported unchanged, with the
Allies organizing their forces to fall
on that important iron ore port.,
Southeast, several thousand more
Allied troops were understood to
have reached the Lillehammer area,
from where they will try to fan out
through south Norway.
Britain Vaids Nazi Bases
Britain declared her air force was
getting in heavy licks at Germany,
having bombed five Nazi air bases in
Norway, Denmark and in Germany
With 2,000,000 men under arms in
the Empire against whatever the war
this summer may bring, Britain also
took comfort in the thought that the
Allies now have 7,000,000 soldiers to
battle Germany's military might.
The French high command had its
eyes on Sweden. It was reported
without confirmation that transports
loaded with troops had steamed out
of German Baltic ports. A spokes-
man of the French war ministry said
the reported German troop embarka-
tions were nothing less than, a "grave
menace" to Sweden.

Senate Vote
To Be Held
42 Candidates To Compete
For 16 Open Positions;
Body To Convene Today
Balloting Expected
To Exceed 2,500
More than 2,500 students are ex-
pected to vote in the Student Senate
Elections tomorrow, Directors of Elec-
tions Norman A. Schorr, '40, and
Stuart K. Knox, '40, predicted yes-
terday, with 42 candidates competing
for 16 positions.
Platforms of 19 candidates and coa-
litions of candidates are printed on
the battle page of today's Daily, page
2, as are the locations of the polling
places, which will be open from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m., except the Union bal-
loting post which will remain open
until 6 p.m.
Special ballots have been prepared
the Directors said, for members of
the three athletic teams departing
today-tennis, baseball and track
teams. The ballots will be given to
the managers of the teams who will
place them in a sealed envelope to
be mailed back to the Directors, and
will not be opened until the campus
ballots are counted.
Members of the present Senate,1
more than half of whom will be at-,
tending their last meeting, will con-
vene at 7:30 p.m. today in the Union
to consider two important problems
-the results of the Spring Parley as
they affect the Senate, and the issues1
presented by the Elections, Arnold
White, '41, secretary, announced yes-
One problem raised by the new by-
laws on elections passed several weeks
ago, is the fact that the Senate nowt
has 30 members rather than 32, and
only one-third of the body will retire
each semester instead of the one-half
as formerly, White indicated. ThisI
presents questions of new quorums,
more possibility of continuity and
carry-over from semester to semester1
of committee action, he said. 3
The Parley resolutions, several of
which directly affect the Senate, will
be considered in detail, and commit-
tees must be formed for further action
on the issues raised.1

An appeal was broadcast yesterday
by Congress, independent men's or-
ganization, for additional tutors to
supplement the 50 who have already
agreed to give scholastic assistance.
Tutors are especially needed in the
following subjects, according to
Robert Mack, '42, chairman of the
plan : German II, Drawing II, geol-
ogy 12, French 32 and economics 54.
The tutors will be asked to give
several hours of instruction each
week to students who are finding
their studies troublesome. Students
desiring scholastic assistance may
register for the plan from 3 to 5
p.m. each afternoon Monday through
Friday at the Congrees offices, Room
306 in the Union.
Tutors are available for nearly all
elementary courses and for many
advanced studies. They may charge
a maximum of 20 cents per hour for
their services if they so desire.
The aim of the program, according
to Phil Westbrook, '40, president of
Congress, is to provide independent
men the same opportunities of se-
curing scholastic aid that fraterni-
ties afford their members.
