In a remote corner of the Buildings
and Grounds Department, stacked
neatly row on row, are over 1200
reels of motion pictures on 600 dif-
ferent subjects-all an integral part
of a statewide program of visual
education which is sponsored by ,the
University Extension Service.
While the former department is the
workshop where the actual handling
of the films is done, it is the Bureau
of Visual Education which issues the
orders that send the reels to over 300
Michigan schools and communities.
During each month an average of
1450 film subjects are sent out, and
in a year's time this number reaches
approximately 14,000. ,
Comics not being catalogued, the
most popular subjects are those deal-
ing with science and the social
studies. However, in the catalogue
of the bureau may be found such
other subjects as Vocational Guid-
ance, Sports,sHome Economics, Arts
and Music, Forestry, and even reels
dealing with language pronunciation.
Use of this movie library is open
to any school, college, university, or
responsible organization in this
state. Silent or sound films may be
secured by a group's paying of a
small per diem charge.'.

Will Call Irish Parliament
Into Special Session
DUBLIN, May 24.- )-Opposing
British military conscription in the
six counties of Northern Ireland
which remain under the English
crown, Prime Minister Eamon de
Valera today called the Irish Parlia-
ment, the Dail Eireann, into special
session Monday to discuss the ex-
plosive situation.
The northern Irish at present serve
in Britain's armed forces only on a
volunteer basis, but Prime Minister
John Miller Andrews of Northern
Ireland, who has urged conscription
there, was in London today with sev-
eral of his cabinet ministers to dis-
cuss the situation with British Prime
Minister Churchill.
Churchill has promised a state-
ment at the next session of the
House of Commons.
De Valera has expressed fears that
conscription of the Northern Irish
would bring the war closer to neutral
Eire. Observers expected him to make
a statement to the Dail on the eco-
nomic and defense problems of Eire
as well as on the military service
Reports from Belfast, capital of
Northern Ireland, told of an anti-
conscription movement already start-
ed there by Nationalists, who favor
unification of the six northern coun-
ties with the 26 counties of independ-
ent Eire.

Navy Duty To End
With Emergency
Men enlisting in the Naval Reserve
will be released from active duty at
the end of the present national emer-
gency, regardless' of the period of
their enlistment, Capt. Lyal A. Dav-
idson, Commandant of the University
INROTC, pointed out yesterday.
This announcement of policy was
contained in a recent statement by
the Acting Secretary of the Navy,
Ralph Bard. According to this new
arrangement, a member of the Naval
Reserve will be able to return to
civil life at the end of the emergency
even though his enlistment still has
several years to run.
Enlistments in the Naval Reserve
are for four years, if the applicant
is over 18, or for the period of minor-
ity if between 17 and 18.

Norman Thomas, former Presby-
terian minister who turned Socialist
because of the suffering he saw in
his East Harlem parish, will pre-
sent "A Democratic Answer to War
and Fascism" at 8:15 p.m. Wednes-
day, May 28, in the Rackham Amphi-
theatre, under the auspices of the

The man who has run for the
highest office in, the land four times
is a familiar lecturer to University
audiences. His last appearance here
was Oct. 15 when he took part in
a Michigan Forum, speaking on the
subject, "Butter and Arms." At pres-
ent he is in the midst of a nation-
wide lecture tour.
His current campaign against war
iA only part of a life-long battle
against the use of force in interna-
tional relations. He opposed Ameri-
can participation in World War I, as
he does in the present conflict.
In 1918 he left the church to join
the American Union Against Militar-
ism and not king after, the Socialist
Party. He rose rapidly in liberal
ranks, becoming associate editor of
the Nation in 1921 and director of
the League for Industrial ljemocracy
in 1922. The election of 1928 and
the three succeeding' campaigns
found him leading the Socialist tick-
et as their candidate for President of
the United States.
Thomas has often presented his
ideas through the medium of books
and articles. His better known works
include "America's Way Out-A Pro-
gram for Democracy," "As I See Iit,"
"Human Exploitation" and "War-
No Profit, No Need, No Glory."
Army To Keep
4"F }
Intact Air Units
On Campuses
The new policy of the Army Air
Corps in keeping intact units of fly-
ing cadets from the same schools has
reached the University campus.
Lieut. C. L. Van Zand from Self-
ridge Field will spend the next two
weeks at ROTC headquarters inter-
viewing men interested in forming at
least three units of twenty men each
for the flight training. These units
will be kept intact during all stages
of the instruction.
A traveling board will be in Ann
Arbor for 4 week starting June 8 to
take final action on applications made
during Lieut. Van Zand's visit.
To be eligible applicants must be
20 to 27 years of age, unmarried citi-
zens of the United States and in
normal physical condition. Two years
of college work excuses applicants
from the mental examination.

Defense Drive
To Terminate
Its First Year
Knudsen Reports Iicrease
In Airplane Deliveries,
Industrial Projects
WASHINGTON, May 24.-(/P)-
America's great defense drive was a
year old today, with William S. Knud-
sen, the Director of Production, as-
serting that airplane deliveries had
increased 400 per cent in that period,
1,625 iew industrial projects had been
started and $15,200,000,000 worth of
I orders placed.
With the nation's factories now
swinging into mass production of
planes, tanks and guns, it was appar-
ent, too, that the defense program
was also taking on new directions and
objectives. And just where it goes
from this point may be indicated by
President Roosevelt in a long-awaited
fireside chat Tuesday night.
One of the newest developments of
the defense program is scheduled for
Monday, a national nutrition confer-
ence for defense to be held under the
direction of Paul V. McNutt, the Fed-
eral Security Administrator. Some 400
delegates are expected to attend the
three day session.
Another new development is the
creation of the-Office of Home De-
fense under Mayor Fiorello H. La-
Guardia, mayor of New York City.
Its task will be to train, civilians in
the protection of life, property and
strategic points such as bridges and
industrial plants in the event of any
war emergency.
Developments today related to de-
fense and the foreign situation in-

had received reports that American
companies had supplied war mater-
