Economics Professor Says
Civil Liberties Must Be
Preserved By Sltidents
Students should turn their eyes, in
these times of war, to ;ie problems
confronting democracy on campus,
Prof. Arthur Smithies of the econom-
ics department maintained yesterday
in the Union at the semi-annual
Student Senate luncheon.-
The main problem facing students1
today, according to Professor Smith-1
ies, is one of civil liberties. Racial3
and religious prejudices evidenced on
campus should be fought, he con-!
tinued, stressing the point that as1
war comes closer there is more of a
tendency to gag political minorities.
Blakeman Gets Gift1
Robert Reid, '40, new president of
the Senate, presented a gift to Dr.t
Edward Blakeman, counselor in re-i
ligious education, on behalf of thec
James Duesenberry of the ecanom-
ics department, retiring speaker of
the Senate, was presented a StudentE
Senate pin. He explained that if thex
Senate wants to be bigger and better1
it must work tirelessly and thank-1
lessly. "The one big success" of the1
Senate, he stated, has been the parley
Riechard Condemns Fatalism t
Hugo Reichard, Grad., vice-presi-1
dent of the Senate, condemned the
prevalent fatalism on the part of the
students concerning the war. "Some
of us," he said, "are beginning to
resemble summer soldiers and sun-
shine patriots."
Reichard explained that events are
moving faster in this war than in the_
last. Roosevelt has broken the silence
in a most ingenious way," he main-
tained, referring to the President's
message before the Scientific Con-
gress Friday as the "smooth, calcu-
lating phrasing we've been waiting
for" to send America down the road
to war.

"The war can very well be lost by way.
Britain and France in the next few The technique which Germany has
days," Prof. Howard M. Ehrmann of employed, the lessons she has learned
the history department said last night as she has gone ahead in her pro-
discussing Germany's latest move in-graand the thoroughly weak struc-

to Holland, Belgium and Luxem-
bourg. If the Nazi invasion of these
lowland countries is not stopped and
driven back, the Allies will be in a
very critical situation, Professor Ehr-
mann added.
Possesion of air bases in Holland
and Belgium will enable Nazi bomb-
ers to strike with ease at England,
the British navy, and at shipping in
the English Channel and the North
Sea. Furthermore, Professor Ehr-{
mann said, the occupation of Bel-
gium will place Germany in a stron-
ger position to attempt the turning
of the Maginot Line.
This move into the low countries
has been expected ever since the war
began, Professor Ehrmann pointed
out, owing to the strength of the Mag-
inot and Westwall lines. But the time
of the attack, and vether it would
precede or follow an invasion of Hun-
gary and Rumania was not known.
The Germans have enjoyed a long
series of successes ever since they
reintroduced military service in
March, 1935. Since that time they
have moved ahead, to the reoccu-
pation of the Rhineland in March,
1936, into Austria in March, 1938, the
Sudetenland in September of 1938.
the rest of Czechoslovakia in March,
1939, Poland in September, 1939, and

said. The technique includes spread-

have been marked for the Blitzkrieg.

another, utilizing pro-Nazi groups in
such countries, then the Blitzkrieg
itself, sudden but final invasion, with
the aid of motorized troops, mechan-
ized units, and air forces.
Using this lack of internal soli-
darity as an opening wedge, Germany
has succeed in taking Austria, Czecho-
slovakia, Poland, Denmark, and Nor-
way without the opposition that
mitht have been expected, Professor
Ehrmann stated, adding that so far
the news dispatches do not show any
such division of national loyalties in
Holland or Belgium in the face of
the latest invasion.
