Passes Away
Young Medical Professor

Dean Furstenberg
Expresses Regret
Dr. George H. Belote, Associate
Professor of Dermatology and Syph-
ilology, died yesterday afternoon in
University Hospital after an illness
of three weeks.
He is survived by his wife, Lucy,
and two children, James and Barbara.
In compliance with his own wishes
there will be no funeral services.
An expression of regret for his
death was made by Dr. Albert C.
Furstenberg, Dean of the Medical
"Medical history at Michigan," he
said, "will record with a deep sense
of pride and profound appreciation
the loyal and devoted services of Dr.
Belote. In the medical faculty he was
selected as a man 'of rare clinical
ability and exemplary academic quali-
fications. He was modestly assertive,
kindly and sympathetic in his profes-
sional relationships and faithful to
the ethical principles and high stan-
dards of medical practice and re-
search to which he had dedicated his
Clear; Logical Thinker
"As a teacher Dr. Belote was a
clear, logical thinker, lucid and con-
cise in his expressions, and con-
structive in his programs of study.
As an investigator he was quick to
conceive theories, eager to submit
them to scientific experimentation,
but exacting and critical in his own
disciplines of research. As a physician
Dr. Belote was a keen diagnostician
with a.ancientious and abiding in-
terest in the welfare of his patients.
"The Medical School and the pro-
fession of dermatology have suffered
a cruel blow in the untimely death
of one who has meant much to the
progress of American medicine. Our
sorrow is mitigated only by the know-
ledge that theprinciples he taught
his students and the epochs he
achieved in research will not fail of
lasting recognition and acclaim."
At the time of his death Dr. Belote
was 47 years old. He had been a mem-
ner of the Medical School faculty
for 17 years. His work won him na-
tinal recognition as an authority on
de1matology and syphilogy.
For the last 13 years he was as-
sociated in private practice with Dr.
U. J. Wile, chairman of the depart-
ment of dermatology and syphiology.

Delay In Defense Work
Caused By New Strikes

(By The Associated Press)
Strikes in widely separated indus-
trial areas continued, yesterday to
slow down' work on some national
defense materials.
A walkout of 120 AFL building lab-
orers working on construction of a
$12,000,000 small arms ammunition
plant in St. Louis, Mo., caused a stop-
page of work among carpenters, elec-
tricians and steam shovel operations.
The plant is being built under gov-
ernment contract by a Western Cart-
ridge Company subsidiary.
The company said the strike came
as the result of the firm's legal in-
ability to give permanent job passes

Harmon Will Receive
$13,500 For Acting
Michigan's All-American Tom Har-
mon, who recently accepted a con-
tract to act in a motion picture,
yesterday revealed that he would re-
ceive $13,500 from the Crosby agency

the firm said, are limited by Govern-
ment order to men actually at work
on the job.
The New York bus drivers' strike
forced 900,000 persons to seek trans-
portation in the subways and taxi-
cabs in the second day of the strike.
Michael J. Quill, president of the
CIO's Transport Workers Union, said
the men were "digging in for a long
fight." The Dies Committee at Wash-
ington issued a statement declaring
that Communist influence in the
Union was responsible for the "ut-
terly unreasonable attitude of the
union leaders.
3,500 Called Out
The strike called out 3,500 employes
of two big bus firms, the Fifth Ave-
nue Coach Company, and the New
York City Omnibus Corporation, and
stopped 1,300 buses. The union de-
mands a new contract calling for a
-25 per cent pay raise and a cut in
working hours from 54 to 48 weekly.

"complies" with a government-draft-

The film, which is to De shown to-

It is the third in a series of such

The life of Gorky during his stay

The dire poverty and dangerous

It would be wise for the United
States to assume the defensive in the
Pacific, and combine our forces with
those of Great Britain to defeat Hitler

suffer if we carry out these plans
in "cleaning up" on Adolf Hitler, he

Japan back in the eggshell from
which it emerged in 1853."

been undermining these castles."
According to Admiral Stirling,
Japan controls two thir'ds of the is-
lands which form a fringe fencing
Asia off from the Pacific. The Phil-
ippine Islands form the other third,
and are a block to Japan's entrance
to the China Seas. For this reason,
Admiral Stirling insisted that the
