Greece Strategic
For Suez Atta
The possessor of Greece is strate-
gically located for a thrust at Bri-
ta~n's Neareastern lifeline, Suez, or
a drive through Turkey at the vital
oil fields of Iraq and Iran, Prof.
Henry M. Kendall of the geographyJ
department, declared yesterday.
The area of Greece adjoining the
Albanian frontier is the most rugged
part of the very mountainous coun-
try, and is without any definite or
easily accessible route to the more im-
portant sections, he pointed out.
Athens is at the extreme south-
eatsern corner of Greece and the Ital-
ians have crossed the frontier at the'
opposite extremity, he added.
Athens is the capital and largest
city in Greece with a popukation of
about 772,000 people, he noted, and
Saloniki in the northeast is the sec-
ond city of importance with 261,000'
Saloniki can easily be reached
through the historic invasion routes
by way of the Vardar River from
Yugoslavia or the Maritza River val-
ley from Bulgaria, Professor Kendall
explained, but the route from Al-
bania is rough.
Referring again to the possibilities
of an Axis expedition via Turkey, he
pointed out .that from a topographical
standpoint, such a thrust would be
much easier, once entry to the Ana-
To Meet Today
The Pre-Medical Society will meet
at 8:00 p.m. today in the East Am-
phiteatre of the West Medical Build-
ing. A colored moving picture of skin
lesions of infectious deseases will be
shown by Doctor Townsley of the
Pediatrics Department of the Univer-
sity Hospital.
The list of students who will take
the series of aptitude tests offered
to members of the Society will be
made at the meeting, and all those
wishing to take them must at least
come to sign up, since the first tests
will be given this Saturday, Nov. 2nd.
These tests must not be confused
with the National Medical Aptitude
Test to be given Nov. 8th, which is
required for all students entering
medical schools next fall. The tests
for the members of the Pre-Medical
Society are optional, are open to all
classes, and are much more extensive
than the National test.

The majority of the people live

Style, he explaineQ.
Anyone who manages to conquer
Greece will obtain little of value in
nineral resources, but will inherit
many serious population problems,
Professor Kendall pointed out.
The main value of Greece to the
Axis can be only strategic, he added.
The tiny country is one-sixth smaller
han the state of Michigan, and had
an export-import trade valued at
znly $600,000 in 1938, he reported.
Dr. Ehrmann
Surveys War
At Grad Meet
With a brief survey of the Euro-
pean situation in which he attempted
to show the changes which have tak-
en place in the war, Prof. Howard
Ehrmann, of the history department,
opened the regular bi-weekly series
of Graduate Coffee Hours yesterday.
In relating the events in this
country with those in Europe, the
Professor pointed out that the wide
age limit and the length of service
as required in the present conscrip-
tion act, are an indication of two
important things: the present admin-
istraion regards the war situation as
very grave and it wants this martial-
ing of forces to lend weight to our
The constant spreadin the war
from England and Germany to tlae
Balkans, to Greece, to Egypt, to the
Far East are minor parts of the
struggle, Professor Ehrmann said.
The main scene is still in England
and Germany with the outcome de-
pending on the effect of the bombings
of both air forces.
A delay in enforcing a complete
embargo on Japan is a matter of
diplomacy, he stated. Diplomats fear
hat such an act would only hasten
a Japanese move toward the Dutch
East Indies or the Philippines and
thus involve the United States in war.
In answer to the question put to him
in the discussion period Prof. Ehr-
mann stated that the collapse of
France may have been due to a de-
featist attitude - a "war weariness"
which was followed by the absence of
a desire to make sacrifices in war-I

"Professors and teachers have been
very friendly to us since our arrival,"
Kazim Ogel, one of the group of stu-

impressed by the difference between
this University and the German

said. "In European schools we were
examined only once or twice a year
while here, we understand, we will
be tested more often."
"Ann Arbor seems a very compact
cultured town that still has space to
grow," they said viewing the city in
its downpour of rain.

Active along the Burma Road in
combatting deadly malaria fever, a
disease which has killed hundreds of
workers and has even wiped out en-
tire villages, is Dr. Robert Ellsworth
Brown, a graduate of the University
College of Medicine in 1918, who will
speak here today.
Recently arrived in America, where
he will remain until his return to
the Far East in December, Dr. Brown
revealed- that an intensive program
calculated to eradicate the disease
from the Burma Road area has been
planned and is now in the process of
being carried out.
The Burma Road runs through
otherwise impassible territories, pro-

viding the only major supply line be-
tween China and the outside world.
Its closure, authorities agree, would
be a vital setback to China's de-
The road is in a constant state of
repair because of heavy tropical rains
and Japanese bombing, and workmen
are needed constantly along its en-,
Lire 2,000 mile length.
Although malaria has let up some-
what in this season, Dr. Brown said
in a report released in New York,
advance arrangements have been
made at several places along the'
road to care for these who may con-
tract the disease

Turkish exchange student Fik-
ret Altenal, who is one of the bet-
ter known soccer players in his
native land, is quick in catching
onto our American life. Fikret ar-
rived in Ann Arbor yesterday morn-
ing and by afternoon was avidly
kicking and punting a football
down the narrow coridors of the
International Center. Ithwas his
first acquaintance with the game,
but after ten minutes he frankly
admitted, "Hah! I'm better than
Harmon. I kick better."
