To Be Organist's Own
'Night Song' Compostion
Robert H. Elmore, organist at the
Church of Holy Trinity in Philadel-
phia, will offer the second guest re-
cital of the semester at 4:15 today
in Hill Auditorium with a varied pro-
gram including selections by Bach,
Franck, Renzi and Yon.
Featured selection will be Mr. El-
more's own "Night Song" which has
been described by one critic as a
"wistfully plaintive melody which
creates a mood of night with its
peace, its fanciful visions and its un-
answered longings."
Born in 1913, Mr. Elmore began
his musical education at the age of
Vx starting his work on the organ
three years later. From 1926 to 1933
he was a pupil of Yon after which
he received the post' of music director
of the Arch Street Methodist Church
of Philadelphia.
In that same year he received the
degree of Licentiate of the Royal
Academy of Music of London in three
separate subjects, organ, concert
piano and pianoforte accompaniment
-an achievement unprecedented in
the history of that organization,
Today's program will open with
three compositions by Bach which
will be followed by Yon's "Sonata
Quarta," Franck's "Piece Heroique,"
"Night Song," Boex's "Marche Cham-
petre" and "Toccata" by Renzi.

Professor Will Present
Talk On War Problems
Of United States At Union
Prof. Charles F. Remer of the eco-
nomics department will speak on
"War Questions For Americans" at
8 p.m. today in Room 305 of the
Union under the auspices of the
American Student Defense League.
Professor Remer will discuss the
present situation of the United States
in world affairs. By first asking
significant questions and then con-
sidering their answers he will touch
upon such current problems as our
relations with Japan in the Par
East. our relations with Germany
and Great Britain and the advisa-
bility of the lease-lend bill which is
now being debated in the Senate.
Special emphasis will be placed
upon the Far Eastern crisis because
Professor Remer believes it may con-
stitute an even more immediate ques-
tion than any which will arise in
Europe. He feels that too many
people in this country do not take
the Japanese seriously enough.
At 7:30 p.m., preceding Professor
Remer's talk, the American Student
Defense League 'will hold a short
business meeting to discuss plans
for the future.

an interview yesterday.
"The French nation wishes for the a
defeat of Germany but dares not l,
hope for it" was the way Prof. Slos- I
son summarized the situation. If
Britain wins or appears to be win- -
ning the Petain regime will probably
collapse and the whole government'
openly support the British. At the
present time, however, French lead-
ers haveiadefeatist attitude that
Germany can't be defeated and hence
their passivity.
Germany is able to apply pressure1
on France because she holds two mil-
lion prisoners of war and controls
the economic life of the two-thirds
of the nation she occupies. The
French hold merely one weak card
which they can use to repel the de-
mands of the Nazis for bases on the
Mediterranean and use of the re-
mains of the fleet, explained Prof.
Slosson. That is the Weygand army,
in Africa. Regardless of this, the
best the French can do is stall for
time. One faction, headed by Laval,
-favors an immediate settlement with
France as a passive ally of Germany,
allowing the use of her ports and
ships. Germany would then ease
the burdens on the occupied zone.
In any event, Germany could seize
the bases and ships at any time but
prefers to do it peacefully.{
Asked as to what Petain, Franco,
and Mussolini discussed in their
three-cornered conference, Prof. Slos-
son replied that no conclusions could
be made because of the secrecy which
surrounded it. German-French ne-
gotiations have been held up because
of Laval's dismissal, howevet,.


graduation they will receive regular'
commissions and will be ordered to 1

government, a state of national
emergency exists at that time.
Patte.e Claims
Equality Need
In Cooperation
(Continued from Page 1)a
the whole system of political and ec-
onomic relations is cultural," Mr.
Pattee said that the human quality
in affairs is often subordinated to the
commercial aspect, and he reminded
of the South America's profound at-
tachment to Europe.
"The United States must not try
to erase the European culture inher-
ent in South America," he asserted,
"but must add to this culture in
terms of reciprocity."
Evidence shows that the advances
of the United States are arousing in-
ter-American cooperation and a de-
sire to curb the misapprehension and
{ misunderstanding present in past re-
lations, but mutual respect must be
a principle of the American people
as well as the governments, he said.

IAnnutal Smoker
Engineering students will have an
opportunity to discuss ethics in the
engineering profession at their first
"Get-Together Smoker" of the year
at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the main
ballroom of the Union.
Sponsored by the student Engi-
neering Council and the Committee
on Professional Practice, the Smoker
will be highlighted by an address by
Dean Ivan C. Crawford of the Col-
lege of Engineering who will con-
sider' some of the ethical problems
which engineers face in their pro-
Dean Crawford, who is well known
for his work in this field, is a former
chairman of the ethics committee of
the National Engineering Council.
Also included on the program will
be colored motion pictures of Camp
Davis, Wyo., the University's sum-
mer surveying camp. Cigarettes and
refreshments will be passed out free
of charge.
Started some five years ago, meet-
ings on professional practices have
been held at frequent intervals in
the College under the direction of
Prof. Roy Swinton of the engineer-
ing mechanics department in order
to acquaint students with the ethical
side of their work.
Tomorrow's Smoker, which is open
to all students in the College of En-
gineering, is under the supervision
of Prof. R. S. Hawley of the me-
chanical engineering department and
Jerome Mecklenburger, AlE.
