Osterweil And Ryder Will
Request For Authority
Will Meet Tomorrow
Parallling the controversy that
now rages in Congress over Presi-
dent Roosevelt's request for extra-
ordinary powers, will be the Michigan
Forum debate at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow
at the Union between Frank L. Ryder,
Grad., and Harold D. Osterweil, '41,
on the topic: "Resolved: That Presi-
dent Roosevelt Should Be Given the
Extraordinary Powers He Has Re-
quested of Congress"
This will be the Forum's first meet-
ing this year to continue its pro-
gram of bringing the "pros" and
"cons" of the current economic, social
a and political issues to the attention
of the students. It is planned to have
a regular series of Forums through-
out the coming semester, at which
outside speakers as well as students
and faculty will be able to speak
to Michigan students.
Last fall Socialist candidate Nor-
man Thomas; Michigan's junior sen-
ator, Democrat Prentiss Brown; and
Pat Toohey, Communist Party of-
ficial, spoke before Forum audiences
on the then current presidential
campaign. Local Republican groups
arranged for Republican, Wendell
Willkie, to appear.
The idea of the Forum had its
inception in the minds of a number
of campus leaders who thought that
the function of the Parley should be
continued throughout the school
year. Heads of the Michigan Union,
Mihigan League, Student Senate and
The Daily, now serve as the sponsor-
ing committee of the Forum, while
the actual execution of policy is car-
ried on by the Parley Committee of
the Student Senate.
Herman Epstein, '41, of the Senate,
is acting chairman of the Forum and
Laurence Mascott, '41, serves as ex-
ecutive secretary. Prof. Arthur
Smithies and James Duesenberry of
the economics department, are hon-
orary members of the Forum Com-
Erwin G. Clahassey, '41, was elected
president and house manager of the
Brandeis Cooperative House at a reg-
ular meeting last night. Other officers
chosen were Joseph Francati, '43,
and Richard Mason, '43, purchasing
agents; Melvin Eckhouse, '44, assist-
ant purchasing agent; Russell Braga,
'41BAd, accountant, George Hambur-
ger, '42, assistant accountant.
Herman Epstein, '41, was selected
Nas chairman of the personnel com-
mittee. Others on the personnel com-
mittee are William Ditz, '42, and
Milton Charnowitz, '41. Laurence
Mascott, '41, and William Rockwell,
'41, are the new education directors.
Also elected were Albert Blaustein,
'42, social chairman; Robert DeLine,
'41, athletic director, and David Lach-
enbruch, '42, secretary.
J-Hop Booth Reservations
Still Open To Independents
Reservation may still be made for
the Independent Booth at the J-Hop,
according to William H. Rockwell,
'41, president of Congress, Indepen-
dent Men's Association.
This will be the largest booth at
the Hop and the only one for non-
affiliated students. Reservations cost
75 cents per couple and may be made
in Room 306 in the Union between
3 and 5 p.m.
Empty Cash Box Found
Near Sorority By Police
Police reported yesterday that an
empty cash box belonging to the,
Gamma Phi Beta housemother, Mrs.
M. A. Wentworth, had been found
in the neighborhood of this sorority
which was broken into Monday eve-
Detective Albert E. Huesel said that
the discovery of the box" put aside
previous conjectures that the crime
might have been an "inside job." He
believed that ;the thief had apparent-
ly entered the sorority house through
an unlocked side door.

Tobruk's Early Fall Would Help
BritainDeal With Air Offensive
By KIRKE L. SIMPSON
(Associated Press Staff Writer)
Early fall of Tobruk, besieged Ital-
ian strong point in east Libya, would
do more than further deplete the
Fascist Army in North Africa or
heap fresh disaster on Mussolini. It
might serve to help the British in-
calculably in dealing with the Nazi-
Fascist air offensive in the central

paign in Africa as well as British
efforts to aid Greece in Albania. It
may have forced the British High
Command to expediate the attempt to
smash Italian resistance at Tobruk
and open a route for more effective
British counter measures by sea and
air in the Sicilian channel.
Tobruk Penetrated, British Say
The Tobruk garrison is in virtually
the same plight as were the Fascist
defenders of Bardia, farther east, who
surrendered wholesale to the British.
Tobruk is completely invested by
land and sea and the British say its
defenses already have been pene-
trated. Escape of the estimated 30,000
men left there seems impossible.
The loss of this garrison would fur-
ther shrivel the Italian Libyan Army,
which is reported to be digging in des-
perately in the Dernamekili area. This

Terrain Hampers Fascists
Behind that Italian defense system

the British air force could take an
important part in the counter-offen-
sive against southern Italy. It also
could give close support to Malta,
Britain's central Mediterranean cit-
adel. The continued availability to
the British of that island strong-
hold might be the key to the battle
of the Sicilian Channel.
Sidra To Malta Is Short Hop
It is not much more, than 200 miles
from the western portal of the Gulf
of Sidra to Malta. It is a shorter dis-
tance from any point along that gulf
to Sicily than from British bases in
Greece. Every 50 miles that can be
cut from the round-trip flights of
British air craft are important.

France and Germany include efforts
to set up Nazi-Fascist air bases in
French Tunisia to supplement opera-
tions from Sicily. The closer the1
British lines can be driven to the
Libyan-Tunisian borders. the better
chance the British would have of
preventing that. From bases along
the Gulf of Sidra they could strike
easily into Tunisia.
Prior to the opening of the Axis
joint air offensive in the central
Mediterranean it seemed possible
that once Tobruk was taken, East
Africa would see the British cam-
paign stepped up. Italian evacuation
of the Sudan probably was ordered
in that expectation.
The Sicilian Channel fight may
have reshaped British plans, however.

are inconvenient, a student may get
