ceremony at the banquet for the 140

ter of the Phi Kappa Phi in the Un-
ion last night when she presented
the candidates and told them that
"Theirs was the opportunity to ac-
cept an obligation in joining to stick

ideals of learning which in the course

Present president, Dr. Warren E.
Forsythe, accepted the initiates and
pronounced them members as he
pointed out to them that the Society
in uniting them in the spirit of its
motto-The love of learning rules
the world-presents them with the
responsibility of living up to that
motto. The Society, which was or-
iginally founded at the University of
Maine, differs from other honor
groups in that it takes in students of
all colleges and departments.
Fitch Presents Musical
Following the short musical pre-
sented by Hubert Fitch, newly made
member, Dr. Carlos Delgado de Car-
valho, who was introduced by Dr.
Preston James of the geography de-
partment, gave a talk on the "Im-
migrant Problem in Brazil."
Dr. Delgado stressed the point that
colonization, which is one of the out-
standing problems, must be met with
utter Brazilian enthusiasm. "Brazil
is in need of immigrants to help
carry on with the expasion towards
the west," he said.
Must Correct Mistake
In the closing words he also point-
ed out that Brazil must correct its
mistake of open-door policy and
watch for the using of Brazil by
certain European countries as an out-
let in the search for "lebensraum."
Those initiated into Phi Kappa Phi

Crashes In Battle
BERLIN, April 30.-(/P)--The Ger-
man high command tonight stamped
the Nazi conquest of Norway as vir-
tually won with the linking of Oslo
and Trondheim by green-grey col-
umns, the capture of strategic Dom-
bas in between, and control of the
main rail line from the Norwegian
capital to the great west coast port.
Adolf ,Hitler, himself, sent a spe-
cial order of the day to the German
troops in Norway, praising them for
their tremendous 20-day campaign
and its result: the smashing of an,
Allied pincers movement aimed at
cutting off Trondheim by thrusts
from south and north.
The achievements announced today
by the high command were said in
authorized quarters to have exceed-
ed the fondest expectations of Ger,
man military authorities in view of
the difficulties of the campaign.
Now that Trondheim is secured and
the German troops there no longer
are dependent on supplies from sea
ad air, inspired sources say no time
will be lost In starting a concentric
attack to sweep the Allied troops
from their foothold on the stony
midriff of Norway.
