Mr. Roosevelt, looking tired after
his strenuous campaigning yesterday,
started the drawing with a brief
broadcast speech in which he said
"The tragic circumstances in lands
across the seas have forced upon our
nation the need to take measures for
total defense."
Mr. Roosevelt specifically address-

for military training as the result of

"You will be members of an army
which first came together to achieve
independence and to establish cer-

Thrills Crowd
With Sketches
In her first Ann Arbor appearance
in more than eighteen years, Ruth
Draper. peopled the stage of Hill
Auditorium last night with several
characters from her store of sketches
in the opening lecture of the 1940-41
Oractorical Association Series.
Before beginning her program Miss
Draper spoke to the audience and
reminded them that she was not
caricaturing these people, but that she
was characterizing them. With a
fine performance, she lived for the
audience the few moments in the

lives of those people as she feltJ
they had lived them.
There was no interview with this
distinguished monologuist, because
the press releases said that Miss Drap-
er refused all requests for inter-
views; but in an informal chat over

There was no indication Russia in-
