Col. H.W. Miller
Will Address
Military Expert To Speak
On Nov. 27; Gerhart
Seger Will Talk Dec. 4
Talks by Col. Henry W. Miller on
the "Battle of America" and Gerhart
H. Seger on the "German Fifth
Column" on Nov. 27 and Dec. 4 re-
spectively have been scheduled by the
Ann Arbor branch of William Allen
White's Commitee to Defend America
by Aiding the Allies.
Col. Miller of the engineering
school, an authority on military af-
fairs, was in charge of heavy artillery
on the western front during the first
World War. Gerhert H. Seger was a'
member of the German Reichstag
when Hitler came to power and then
was placed in a concentration camp
for his political beliefs.
The Ann Arbor branch of the White
committee now claims a membership
of about 200 persons. Its aim is to
arouse public opinion to aid the cause
of Great Britain in their fight against
the threat of Hitler's conquest of the
British empire and the world.
At this moment the need has be-
come greater, the group emphasizes,
because of the sudden acceleration of
the counter blockade of England.

Stanton Says Italoi-Greek War
Is Merely7Blind' For Axis Plan

In the opinion of Dr. John W.
Stanton of the history department
the Italo-Greek war is a "side-show"
to cover up Axis preparations for
future aggression against Turkey.
"Turkey is on the direct route to
the coveted oil fields of Iraq and
Persia, and is certain to feel the full
impact of the Fascist war machipe
within a few months." he said.
"Meanwhile the Italians will no
doubt ultimately win their chief ob-
ject in the war-the port of Salonika
-without active German military
aid, but they would encounter serious
difficulties in holding Greek ports
and islands against air attacks by
the British," Dr. Stanton pointed
"But the Italians are probably in-
terested in securing control of the
Greek ports merely as naval bases
for intensified activity in the Med-
Dr. Stanton believes that the Italo-
Greek war is simply a minor phase
in the whole Axis plan to paralyze
the eastern sections of the British
"With the crippling of France and
the stalemate in the German-Eng-
lish air war, the Axis powers have
apparently turned their chief at-
tention to the Balkans and the Near

East, as this week's diplomatic ma-
neuvers indicate."
Dr. Stanton predicted that the
Axis' diplomatic moves in the Balkans
would meet with unqualified success,
for, although all the Balkan states
hate and fear Germany, they will
necessarily "bow before the storm of
Axis aggression", as long as they
feel that England is unable to aid
them effectively.
"Of all the Balkan states Greece,
due to her geographical position, has.
been the least subject to Axis dom-
ination, and thus has been able to
maintain her valuable alliance with
Great Britain," he said.
"And in this geographical position
lies Greece's best chance for staving
off the Italians, for under pressure
from land they can retire to their
ships and still carry on the combat,"
he concluded.

Notice to All Faculty Members and
University Employees: The Regents of
the University in 1931 adopted the
following resolution:
Resolved, That it is the sense of the
Regents that employees on "full-time"
and on annual or monthly salary who
ordinarily receive a vacation at the
expense of the University and pay on
holidays and for a reasonable period
of sick leave if necessary, are not en-
titled to payment for "overtime,"
whether in their own or another de-
partment of the University unless
such arrangement shall have been
authorized in advance by the Presi-
dent or the Board of Regents.
Freshman and Sophomores: All
those taking part in Black Friday
activities are reminded that the
"Rules of Warfare" as agreed to by
both classes provide that no part of
the activities shall take place within
any of the Residence Halls, the Michi-
gan Union, the Michigan League or
other University buildings, and that
there shall be no marking or defacing
of sidewalks or University buildings.
All contestants are expected to ob-
serve these restrictions in order that
there may be no destruction of Uni-
versity property or interference with
the rights of others.

Micligan Dean
Crawford Relates Work
Of Engineers' Council
Calling attention particularly to
the weaknesses of governmental ac-
crediting, Dean Ivan C. Crawford of
the engineering college, discussed the
accrediting of engineering schools be-
fore the Association of American
Universities conference at Washing-
ton, D.C. last week.
Dean Crawford described the work
done in the past four years by the
Engineers' Council for Professional
Development, a voluntary accrediting
group. In addition to recognition of
the political drawbacks inherent in
state control, he pointed out that the
Council believes that uniformity of
standards must be achieved, so that
the engineer might be substantially
the same whether he is 'being edu-
cated in the state of New York or in
the state of Louisiana."
Dean Crawford outlined three main
principles of accrediting which the
Council has applied: the accrediting
of curricula rather than institutions,
the avoidance of rigid standards as
the basis of approval and the in-
sistence on completeness of instruc-
tion within a curriculum.

Many areas of the social service
work done in Ann Arbor are unusually
good according to Bradley M. Buell, of
New York, field director of Commun-
ity Chests and Councils, Inc., who
helped direct the eight month survey
of the agencies dealing with social
welfare problems in Ann Arbor.
Mr. Buell who worked with a staff
of experts submitted a 60 page report
in which it was pointed out that the
major weakness in the activities of
local private and public agencies was
a - lack of enough conscious, intelli-
gent planning toward a community-
wide program.
The survey was conducted under
the auspices of a sponsoring commit-
tee headed by Prof. Laylin K. James
of the Law School which received do-
nations from interested citizeps.
The report states that Ann Arbor

has above-average resources and less
severe problems than most communi-r
The experts recommended an in-
creased awareness of such problems1
as care foi the aged and improved
coordination in a number of in-j
stances. An insufficient coordination1
of resources of the University into thet
community program was mentioned.i
Discussing the prevention of unde-
sireable social conditions, it was
shown that problems often come to
the attention of the agencies too late.
there being no systematic process for
early discovery of such situations and
referral to the proper agencies. Treat-
ment agencies were criticized for be-
ing too superficial many times and'
not delving deeply into the situation'
to find its undercurrents.
Local recreational work came in for
praise. The report stated Ann Arbor
was in the forefront, with that field
more adequately financed than any
other service. The average per capi-
ta expenditure here is $2.95 as com-
pared to the nation-wide average of
$1.60. °
