Fakhri MaIluf Reports Syrians
Revolt A ainst Beirut "Bastille'
News from Syria has been veryd
scarce in the last two weeks but
apparently an underground move-
ment has terminated in an open up-
rising directed against the Beirut pri-
son, according to Fakhri Maluf, one
of the recognized intellectual lead-
ers in the Syrian National move-
Through a special Brazilian news
service, Maluf has learned that a
mass demonstration stormed the
prison, attempting to release a few
hundred of the political prisoners
who have been held there and sub-
jected to great suffering for theirI
beliefs. To date, there has been no
official confirmation of this state-
ment by the French government.
Called New Bastille
"This prison," said Maluf, "has
been known as the new Bastille ever
since it almost became the perman-
ent residence of Mr. Saadeh, the
leader of the Syrian nationalist
movement, and other prominent per-
sons of his party. The French gov-I
ernment has always resented the
name given the prison because it
signified the possibility of such an
attack as has just occurred."
The news said that this uprising
was opposed by the French army who
fired on, and killed several of the
leaders. The unarmed attackers by
far outnumbered the regular army
and succeeded in reaching the jail.
This action, according to Maluf,
has again aroused the nationalistic
spirit in Syria and made the situation
exceedingly precarious for the man-
datory power. Syria will undoubted-
ly play a decisive role in the battle
of the Near East. Demonstrations
of this nature prove that the leader-
ship is exceedingly alert.
Maluf, a former instructor of phys-"
ics and mathematics in the America
University at Beirut, recently closed
by government order, was sentencedf
a few months ago to 15 years im-
prisonment for alleged opposition to

Liberty periods will be granted the
cadets during the cruise. Members of
the unit have high hopes of flashing
their uniforms in some of the Mich-

liberty will be allowed have not been
announced yet, however.
Lieut. Palmer In Charge
Lieut. Robie E. Palmer, U.S.N., will
be in charge of the Michigan NROTC
representatives this summer. For in-
struction in gunnery and seamanship,
respectively, Chief Gunner's Mate
Breitenbach and Chief Boatswain's
Mate Andrews will go along with
Lieut. Palmer. Ranking cadet officer
on the cruise will be Battalion Com-
mander Burnett H. Crawford, '44.
One aspect of the trip which'
NROTC students are inclined to view
with apprehension is the slinging and
- more important - the sleeping in
hammocks. A practice hammock was
slung last week in North Hall, and ca-
dets took turns in "retiring." No
casualties were reported, but a few
of the larger members of the unit had
a little trouble.
