Michigan junior senator, Democrat
Prentiss M. Brown, will support the
President's lease-lend "aid to Britain"
bill upon which the Senate will vote
in the near future, it was learned
yesterday from Vivian Siemon, '42,
of the campus chapter of the Mich-
igan Anti-War Committee.
Miss Siemon was among several
hundred youth from all over the na-
tion who visited the nation's capi-
tal last week-end in a peace mobiliza-
ion sponsored by the Fellowship olk
Reconciliation, Keep America Out
of War Committee, National Council
for Prevention of War, War Resist-
ance League, Women's International
League For Peace and Freedom and
the Youth Committee Against War.
Favors .Bill
Senator Brown will vote for the
lease-lend bill, Michigan's Anti-War
representative learned in an inter-
view, because he feels that if Hitler
is victorious it will necessitate a large
military program for the United
States, whereas an English victory,
will obviate this condition, the Sen-
ator believes.
"When I pointed out to the Senator
that his stand against conscription
had led people to hope for his voting
against the lease-lend bill, Senator
Brown replied that now that con-

scription had passed, lie would sup-
port the President in it," Miss Sie-
mon said.
The Senator added that he had fav-
ored a program of paying university
students and CCC boys 10 to 12 dol-
lars a month if they would take mili-
tary training and spend their en-
tire summers in military training,
instead of the original selective ser-
vice act, Miss Siemon related.
Wants Hatch Act Amended
He will favor such a program after
,he present emergency is past, Miss
Siemon learned. Right now the Sen-
ator is interested in amending the
ffatch Act so that professors, and he
^ited Professor Pollock in particular,
vould be able to give their opinions
3n political matters, it was discovered.
In spite of Senator Brown's state-
nent supporting the lease-lend bill,
anti-war groups believe that political
Pressure still might induce him to
vote finally against the bill.
An anti-war strike is planned on

stated, but as yet the speaker is un-
determined. Socialist Norman Thom-

This map amazingly similar to many invasion diagrams printed to-
day appeared in 1932 in a book written by a German military authority,
Emil Banse. This book contains a, blueprint of the Nazi War moves
including a discussion of the best way to invade England.
Back in 1932 a German geogra-t---------------

pher, Prof. Emil Banse of the Bruns-
wick Technical College wrote a book,
'Raum und Volk im Weltkriege." It
analysed the German mistakes of the
last war and pointed out a course of,
action for a future Reich military.
Banse sent a copy of the work to

"Then England would be in the grip
of forceps from west and the south-
east," he asserts.
He warned the Germans that when
the invasion comes, "the nation will
rush to arms as one map and with
heroic obstinance let itself be mown
down before it is forced back step by

Prof. J. K. Pollock of the political step." He pointed out, however, that
