sonal account of living conditions
and travel on the ice. He com-

of light. He has made distances as
great as 100 miles per day by dog

control result of the air-sea fight accents
n Gatel the necessity for Britain to take the
te-a initiative. While the British fleet
he war- achieved its mission of shepherding
a Greece-bound convoy through the
le Brit- Sicilian channel gateway', it did so at
he Ger- heavy cost. Those narrow waters are
already more or less a maritimes no-man's-

a full- publicly known of the results of the
Italian battle.
apt to Britain cannot afford to ignore
at Eng- that German challenge by shifting;
e as the convoy activities to the long route
ombing. via the Suez Canal to the Eastern
heavy Mediterranean. For prestige reasons
n as a alone, an all-out British air-and-sea
effort to blast southern Italy seems
called for.
British failure to retain her boast-
ed domination of the whole Mediter-
ons ranean woud be a severe blow. It well
might. defer indefinitely any hope
London now has of re-enlisting
French colonial Africa in the war.
It also would bolster Italian morale,
at which British strategy has point-
ed a heavy propaganda barrage in
the belief that it is tottering.
There are other reasons urging
Britain to launch an air attack on
scuthern Italy. Public morale is sup-
posed to be lower there than in

northern or central Italy. South Ital-
ian troops have been little in evi-
dence in the Greek-Albanian cam-
paign. In Africa they were among
the units which surrendered whole-
sale to the British Nile Army at Sidi
Barani and Bardia.
The Nazi-Fascist point air opera-
tions from Sicily may be vulnerable
for still another season. Fueling
planes there for mass usebagainst
the British Mediterranean bases or
fleet represents a serious oil trans-
portation problem. Whatever fuel
Germany supplies to supplement
meager Italian stocks must travel the
!whole length of Italy.

Will End Tomorrow
The famous French film "The
Baker's Wife" will continue its run
8:30 p.m. today at the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre, under the auspices
of the Art Cinema League.
Brought to Ann Arbor by popular
request, the film opened last night,
and will be shown today and tomor-
row. Tickets may be secured for
35c at the Mendelssohn box office.
The picture tells the story of the
village baker whose marital troubles
provide an upheaval in his commu-
nity. English sub-titles have been
provided by JohnhErskine, noted
American author. The filmtwon the
award recently as "the best foreign
film of the year."


Prof. Schuman Receives Praise
ForAccuracyOf Predicti

liams College, who will speak here
Sunday on the question "Can Amer-
ica Escape War?" has received al-
most nation-wide acclaim during the
past two years for his accuracy in.
predicting current world events.
Back in 1937, when the rest of the
world was certain that there would
be peace in Europe during this de-
cade, Professor Schuman asserted
in his book, "International Politics,"u
that ."war between the Great Powers
will almost certainly break out be-
fore the time arrives for a third edi-
tion of this work." The third edition
was issued late in 1939.
During that same year he asserted
that "Austria would fall peaceably
under Nazi control" while most po-
litical scientists were saying that Hit-
ler would not dare such a move and
that, if he did, a war would result.

xar Out Thursday
Featuring 'Freudian
Fanny', 'Stardust'
Freudian Fanny, that lady of the
practical advice, will again be on
hand with some vital information
when the February Gargoyle comes
out Thursday, Dave Donaldson, edi-
tor-in-chief of the campus magazine,
announced yesterday.
"Stardust", Fanny's Frankenstein,3
has chosen to instruct the Saturday
night hen session in the art of fenc-
ing on a date. What to do when his
grip becomes Tarzan-like" is the
general suibject of this lesson. Pre-!
vious articles by the same author
have been devoted to "Osculation"
and "How To Get a Date."
Also featured in Thursday's issue
will be the regular photography,

tractions" departments. I

be made through Holland and Bel-
gium by 1940.
Today Professor Schuman has
made more forecasts of coming
events. He believes that, without the
aid of the United States, the Axis
powers will win World War II.

exceptional were his pictures and so
popular his lectures, that Chapman
decided to give up investment bank-
ing and devote all his time to his
pictures, his lectures and writing.
In his current film, Chapman
shows his audience how nature takes
care of theproblems of soil erosion
and flood control. In his intimate
movies of America's wild life, he
shows how the original dwellers of
the wilderness lived but also pre-
served the richness of their dwelling
places. The beaver with his skillfully
zonstructed dams created a nation-
wide flood control that endured un-
til the white-man came. These dams
hold back the eroded soil, created
fertile meadows and prevented a rain-
gutted country.
The humble ground squirrel does
his part in the pictures and in the
national economy. His burrows, hon-
eycombing the great plains, the far
west, the east, allowed quantities of
water to penetrate the subsoil in-
stead of flushing the surface and
hurrying off to the oceans.
Boch Will Give Lecture
Vincent Boch, nationally known
authority on brass instruments, will
deliver a lecture on "The History of
Instruments ofthe Brass Family" at
11 a.m. today in the Rackham Build-

lege of Washington in 1918 with the
Degree of A.B. and from the Uni-
versity of California in 1,921 with the
degree of Juris Doctor. Instead of
practicing law, however, he went with
the investment banking firm of Blyth
and Co.
The grind which makes men old
before their time was beginning to
tire Chapman, so he took a two years'
leave of absence and headed for the
mountains of Colorado, Wyoming,
Montana and British Montana with
Mrs. Chapman and a goodly supply
of cameras and other equipment.
Two years stretched into four. So
