When The Daily was first printed,
it was called the "U. of M. Daily" and
was organized by a group of students
outside the jurisdiction of the Uni-
versity. After the first small Daily
was enlarged in 1901, its name was
changed to "The Michigan Daily
News," and then later in the year to
its present title.
About this time, as the result of an
investigation, the University pur-
chased the newspaper stock and set
up a governing board, forerunner of
the present Board, which was formed
in 1919, allowing also for a savings
fund which later allowed for the erec-

contralto, will make her fourth ap-
pearance in Ann Arbor when she in-
augarates the Sixty-second Annual
Choral Union Concert Series at 8:30
p. m. tomorrow in Hill Auditorium.

last appearance here in a May Fes-
tival because she was appearing on
an all-Bach program. Among the
selections will be "Sinner, Please
doan' let dis Ilarve' pass." "The Gos-
pel Train." Tramp'ng" and "Dere's
no h'dn' place .down dcre."
Miss Anderson, born and brought

first appeared in special public school
entertainments, and later was audi-
tioned by important musicians which
resulted in a small fund being created
out of the nickels and dimes of sup-
porters for her continued musical
instruction. After winning numerous
contests she appeared with the Phila-
delphia Symphony Orchestra, and
then went abroad where she gained
further recognition. Her American
debut proved to be the start of an
outstanding musical career.

Nation-Wide Drawing Plan
Completed At Dykstra,
800,000 To Train
Within 8 Months
WASHINGTON, Oct 21 - OP)
At noon on October 29, Secretary of
War Stimson will draw the first
number in a nation-wide lottery in
which nearly 17,000,000 young men
hold tickets - 800,000 of them good
for a year's service in the Army.
Plans for the lottery were complet-
ed today at a conference of Dr. Clar-
ence Dykstra, director of selective
service, and President Roosevelt. At
first Dystra said the President would
draw the first number, but later it
was announced that Mr. Roosevelt
desired this honor.for Stimson.
Within three weeks after Stimson
lifts the first blue number capsule
from a big goldfish bowl, the initial
contingent of 30,000 draftees will be
on their way to training camps.
Men will be called to training -
800,000 by next June 15 - in the or-
der in which their names are drawn
from the bowl, unless they volun-
teer without waiting to be called or
unless they are deferred from service.
After Secretary Stimson draws the
first 1940 number at the Interdepart-
mental Auditorium, subsequent cap-
sules will be picked by other high-
ranking government officials before
the drawing settles down to its tedious

Fiorello H. LaGuardia of New York,
paying a. whirlwind visit to Detroit
in behalf of President Roosevelt's re-

by scuffling with a heckler on the
City Hall steps today.
As the stocky La Guardia was
walking down the City Hall steps
after a call on Mayor Edward J.
Jeffries, a man stepped out from the
crowd and cried: ti
"Did Boss Flynn send you here?"
Witness said Mayor La Guardia
strode up to the man, seized him by
the shoulders and began to shake
him, meanwhile shouting: "You take
that back. Are you going to take

separated the two and took the heck-

Churchill Broadcasts Plea
To Nazi-Ridden France
(By The Associated Press)
German bombers, giving London a
virtually undisturbed night's sleep
because of a blinding ground fog,
concentrated their explosive blows on
Liverpool and the towns of the Mer-
sey and Midlands last night and ear-
ly today in the wake of Prime Minis-
ter Churchill's defiant declaration
that Britain intended to "beat the life
out of Hitler."
Churchill, addressing defeated
France by radio last night, declared
that Englishmen defiantly were wait-
ing for the "long-promised" invasion
across the English Channel - "and
so are the fishes!"
While the Prime Minister broad-
cast his appeal to Nazi-dominated
France, "if you cannot help us, at
least you will not hinder us," the
RAF followed up last night's 100-
bombs-a-minute onslaught on Ger-
man bases on the French coast with
another terrific attack, apparently
aided by the Royal Navy. Long-range.
hore guns in the Dover-Calais area
RAF Bombs Berlin
Nazi spokesmen in Berlin complain-
ed of the RAF's countering thrusts
against Berlin as "outright terror"
committed against civilians there.
Other raids on industrial Milan
and Turin in northern Italy were
described by the British as a "fore-
taste of the gathering strength of
the Royal Air Force."
Fascist sources in -Rome said eight
persons were killed and 15 wounded
in the British attacks.
They said their own weekend at-
tack on the oil-rich Bahrein Is-
land in the Persian Gulf had a po-
litical motive - the hope that it
would increase anti-British feeling
in nearby India.
Balkan Line-Up Seen
In the Balkans a redoubled German
campaign to bring Hungary and Bul-
garia completely into the Rome-Ber-
lin-Tokyo Axis was seen and there
were reports of British efforts to line
up Greece, Turkey and Yugoslavia
against further Nazi incursions to-
ward the east.
In Yugoslavia, however, Premier
Dragisa Cvetkovic warned against
being drawn into the "misadventure"
and promised to continue "friendly
relations" with the Axis partners.
This readily was interpreted by dip-
lomats to mean a notice to Britain
that Yugoslavia will not join an an-
ti-Axis front with Greece and Tur-
key which have taken military pre-
cautions because of Italian troop
movements in Albania and German
military penetration of Rumania.
