industries suspended operations for
the afternoon.
Two truck drivers in company uni-
form were standing in waiting. Asked
if they had been given the afternoon
"off," they both answered in unison:
"Naw, we're working."
A goodly percentage of Michigan
students were also there, waiting in
the sun in front of Ann Arbor's well-
bunted "Waterloo Station." Two law
students spent the 50 minutes in re-
viewing torts and a history major was
seen reading "The Decline and Fall
of the Roman Empire."
The candidate was wearing the
same blue suit that he has worn all
through the campaign and he made
the same open-hearted gestures that
have characterized him as a sincere
speaker.

Several sprightly lookingsorority
women appeared in Willkiette cos-
;ume, distributing buttons and smiles.
Curiously enough, they arrived by
taxi.
One professional vendor of Will-
kie's buttons capably hid the Roose-
velt buttons on the reverse side of
his poster . . . A student, on watch-
ing Willkie appear on the platform,
eagerly shouted, "That's him." An
English professor, standing behind
the student, was prompt to reply:
"No, that's he."
Governor Dickinson and several
Republican candidates for state of-
fice stood on the specially-construct-
ed platform and were briefly intro-
duced. Chief speculation among sev-
eral college men present, however,
concerned the unknown but very at-
tractive blonde that accompanied the
Willkie entourage.

By ALVIN DANN
Ann Arbcr is playing an important
role in the current national defenseI
program a survey revealed today.
With several Ann Arbor factories
busy on Government orders, Cham-
ber of Commerce officials state that
the general employment situation in
town is definitely on the upswing.
A number of faculty men have re-
ceived leaves of absence from the
University so that they may assist
the Government as experts in various
fields relating to the present emer-
gency.
Within a few weeks several thou-
sand students will be registered for
selective service. Out of their num-
ber a certain portion will be drafted
for active duty to begin after July
of next year. County, city and Uni-
versity officials are now busy pre-
paring plans for absentee registra-
tion. Draft regulations provide that
college students may register at the
school they are attending if it is not
convenient for them to go home and
register.
Ot-Of-Town Registrants
After the out-of-town student has
registered the questionnaire he filled
out will be sent to his local officials.
He will be covered therefore, by the
quota in his home area and not here.
Co. K. of the Michigan National
Guard will be mobilized October 15
and after a brief induction period
they will be sent to Camp Beaure-
gard in Louisiana for a year's ser-
vice.I
At the present time, Capt. G. J.
Burlingame, commanding officer of
the unit, is conducting a recruiting
drive to bring the company to its
full strength of 81. Since 44 men
have requested to be released from
active duty, because of their de-
pendents or schooling, Capt. Bur-
lingame finds the present recruiting

Advantages Of Enlistment
A man joining the guard now has
several advantages over the man who
runs the risk of being drafted some-
time in the future when his civilian
life might be inconveniently inter-
rupted, the officer pointed out. First,
the man who enlists in the guard
will spend his year in the South
while the conscripted man will prob-
ably be stationed at some Northern
camp. Secondly, guardsman will
serve his year of duty, return home
and finish his next two years at-
tending weekly drills. Then he is
all through with military service.
The conscripted man, on the other
hand, may be recalled for active ser-
vice at any time for ten years or un-
til he is forty-five years.
Gov. Luren Dickinson named the
members of local draft boards last
week. They are still subject to the
approval of the President. The Gov-
ernor selected these men after they
had been chosen by state military
off icials.
. Ann Arbor Draft Board
The men who will serve on the
Ann Arbor board are Edwin C. God-
dard, Prof.-Emeritus of the Law
School, Ambrose C. Pack, retired
postmaster, and Harold Golds. A
separate board has been selected for
the Washtenaw County area beyond
Ann Arbor.
Prof. Goddard retired from active
teaching in 1935. He is listed in
Who's Who and is the author of a
number of legal works.

mind, least of all McKechnies', that
Lombardi's injury will materially
hurt the Reds' chances. Lombardi
is one of the two 'Cinci' batters cap-
able of driving a long ball, and with
his potent bat removed from the Red
cause, here is much less chance of
victory.
So, in brief, the Reds figure that
