Germans Report
Moves 'At Top
Push East Qf

Advance*Soviet Communique Says
Speed'; Veteran ReplacenIents
Moscow Are SlowingBlitzkrieg

BERLIN, Oct. 13.-(IP)-German
tank and motorized infantry divisions
were declared by authorized sources
to be beating forward at top speed
tonight through Russian defenses
which no longer were able even sub-
stantially to delay the invaders, and
some military experts expressed belief
that certain far-advanced Nazi for-
mations already were operating east
of the longitude of Moscow.
Official military maps published in
the German press indicated the main
German lines were within 100 miles
of the capital.
Adolf Hitler's field headquarters
announced that in the principal bat-
tle areas about Vyazma and Bryansk
-the former some 125 miles west of
Moscow and the latter 210 below-the
number of Red war prisoners now in
hand had. gone beyond 350,000.
Not merely two, but three powerful
German columns, it appeared from
Nazi accounts, were striking toward
Moscow's gates. The third-aside
from those based in the Vyazma and
Bryansk vicinities - was reported
smashing to the southeast from the
headwaters of the Volga river in the
Valdai hills toward the town of Rzhev
and standing, by late reports, within
140 miles northwest of the metrop-
This third offensive, said military
informants here, was one of Hitler's
major surprise movements of the
campaign and had caught the Rus-
sians wholly unaware.

MOSCOW, Tuesday, Oct. 14.-()-
The Russians announced early today
the retreat of Red forces from Vy-
azma, key rail junction 125 miles west
of Moscow, but front-line dispatches
said a steady flow of veteran rein-
forcements had slowed, although not
yet stopped, the German onslaught
against the Soviet capital.
A Soviet information bureau com-
munique said Red forces withdrew
from Vyazma "after many days of
fierce fighting in which the enemy
sustained tremendous losses in man-
power and armament."
This town of 17,000 population at
the confluence of the Berba and Vy-
azma rivers, was the second hitherto
strongpoint of Russian resistance
whose abandonment the Russians
have announced in two days. A with-
drawal from Bryansk, 210 miles
southwest of Moscow, was announced
Adler Address
To Inaugurate
Series Today
Famous Author-Educator
Will Discuss 'Aquinas'
In First SRA Lecture
Opening the 1941-42 lecture series
of the Student Religious Association,
Mortimer J. Adler, world-famed au-t
thor, educator and lecturer, will
speak on "Thomas Aquinas and the
Modern World" at 8:15 p.m. today4
in the Rackham Lecture Hall. . ,
The lecture is free and open to thet
public. Adler will address himself tot
those who have no knowledge of the
theories of Aquinas. His lecture will
serve as a beginning for the more de-I
tailed studies of the scholastic phil-
osopher to be taken up by a seminar
series opening at a luncheon meeting
Friday in Lane Hall.-
Adler, who started the modern
movement for the study of Aquinask
at the University of Chicago, will1
explain the thirteenth century au-e
thor's writings and their significances
for the world of the twentieth cen-t
The author of "How to Read aI
Book" and "What Man Has Made ofc
Man", Adler is now professor of phil-
osophy of law at the University ofI
Chicago. He began his career at thet
early age of 13 as an editorial writer
on the New York Sun.
Prominent among all American ed-
ucators, Adler has taught English and
experimental psychology at Columbia
University. While at Columbia he
was also an instructor in John Er-
skine's course of great books. He has
been visiting lecturer at St. John's
College since 1937.
Adler is an active supporter of the
Neo-Thomist movement which at-
tempts to clarify the relations be-
tween the sciences and opposes the
use of the so-called scientific method
in the investigations of religious and.
moral questions. HIis last appearance
in Ann Arbor iwas in 1938.

British Press
Asks Russian
Aid Increase
Suggest American Blood
Must Be Shed In War
If Allies Are To Win
Air Force Begins
Non-Stop Offensive
LONDON, Oct. 13.--lP)-A call for
more direct British-American action
to aid embattled Russia was heard in
many quarters tonight despite au-
thoritative assertions the German
drive on Moscow had been slowed
and may even bog down 70 or 80
miles from Moscow.
Some of the London Press called
for shedding of American blood and
asserted Britain and Russia alone
cannot prevail against Hitlerdom,
while informed quarters suggested
Britain might put its forces into a
land campaign against the Axis in
Italy, North Africa or perhaps the
Russian Cauasus.
RAF Strikes
Britain flung its air force into a
non-stop offensive against the Reich
to cripple its war industries and tie
up transport. Appeals were made to
both British and United States work-
ers to boost production to sustain
Stalin's armies in the campaigns to
Both Lord Beaverbrook and W.
Averell Harriman, heads of the Bri-
tish and American Moscow missions,
worked long at their desks today to
give effect to promises to send Rus-
sia everything she wants in the way
of material aid, and the British said
that a procession of trucks and trains
loaded with planes and tanks already
was moving to ports.
Most agreed the Russians prob-
ably will stand or fall on their own
in this big battle, and that for Bri-
tain and America the important
thing was long-term aid.
U.S. Criticized
In this atmosphere the tabloid
Daily Sketch said "the sooner Ameri-
cans are in with the Russians and
ourselves, mingling their blood and
sweat and tears in a common drain,
the sooner the war will be won." ,
"The idea this titanic struggle can
be won without any shedding of
American blood may be dismissed by
every American as insane," the Sketch
said, adding that a "declaration of
total war at this juncture by Ameri-
ca against Germany" would be more
helpful than delivery of 3,000 Ameri-
can tanks every month.
In addition to the air offensive, re-
liable observers looked to Britain to
take the initiative elsewhere.

Lansing, October 13
My Dear President Ruthven:
It is a privilege and a pleasure to congratulate you on the one-
hundredth anniversary of the beginning of instruction in the College
of Literature, Science and the Arts of the University of Michigan
which ybu will celebrate Wednesday next.
It is a source of great satisfaction to me, and I know it must be to
you, that our University has played such an important role in the
development of higher education in Amperica. Michigan and the Uni-
versity's hundred thousand alumni can be justly proud that the insti-
tution, because of its pioneering efforts along many lines, has im-
measurably influenced the traditions of our nation's educational
organization and has come to bear the title, "Mother of State Univer-
sities." It is well, then, that you celebrate the centenary of the
University's first College by looking back upon its achievements and
More important, however, is the fact that a part of your anniversary
program will be devoted to the future of liberal education in America.
I am sure that you and your colleagues in the University have faith
that cultural values will survive to bring better ordered existence to
all mankind, and that, therefore, the second hundred years of the
University and of the College will be as fruitful as the first.
I sincerely extend to you the blest wishes and congratulations of
the people of Michigan on this important occasion in the educational
history of the State.
Very truly yours,
Students Should Realize Heritage

centennial celebration to be held to-
morrow, EdWard H. Kraus, Dean of

and achievement in higher education,
the responsibility for further progress
in the century ahead will rest largely
upon you and future generations of'
No classes are to be held in the
literary college throughout the day,
so both students and faculty will have
ample opportunity to take advantage
of Dean Kraus' invitation.
The morning session, convening in
Rackham Lecture Hall, will be de-

and achievements of the College.
The general historical development

program are to be Prof. J. G. Winter,
chairman of the Latin department,
discussing the record of the College
in language and literature; Prof. A.
F. Shull of the zoology department
commenting on scientific achieve-
ments; and Prof. A. E. R. Boak of
this history department speaking on
advancement in the field of social
The afternoon session, also to be
held in Rackham Lecture Hall, will
consider the problems and future of
liberal education in America from the
points of view of the endowed insti-
tutions, large state universities, edu-
cationarl and scientific foundations
and college women.

A formal statement issued by the

"The President announced today
that within the past few days large
amounts of supplies had been sent to
Russia. He further stated that all
of the munitions, including tanks,
airplanes and trucks, promised at the
Moscow conference for delivery in
October, will be sent to Russia before
the end of the month.
"These supplies are leaving United
States ports constantly.
Staffs Work Hard
"The staffs in the Army and the
Maritime Commission have worked
over the past weekend rushing sup-
plies to the seaboard and everything
possible is being done to send the
material to Russia to help the brave
defense which continues to be made."
Tie President did not disclose spe-
cific amounts of war supplies the
United States had promised to place
in Russian hands this month or in the
Shipment routes also remained
secret. There was nothing to indi-

Hull, Stimson, Knox
Ask Ban Removal
WASHINGTON, Oct. 13.--(P)-
Three cabinet members and other
officials called on Congress today to
remove the ban against arming
Americantmerchant ships and one of
them declared even "the risk of war
itself" must not deter this country
from aiding Britain.
Secretaries Hull, Stimson and Knox
told the House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee also that the Neutrality Act's
prohibition against American 'mer-
chantmen entering combat zones
ought to be removed in the interest
of insuring delivery of lend-lease
supplies to British ports.
"The risk we incur in arming our
ships and sending them to sea," said
Knox, "is far less than the risk of
allowing England to lose the war."
In one of the bitterest official con-
demnations yet of the Nazi cam-

paign of conquest, the usual mild-
mannered Hull told the committee:
"The blunt truth is that the world
is steadily being dragged downward
and backward by the mightiest move-
ment of conquest ever attempted in
all history. Armed and miliant pred-
atory forces are marching across con-
tinents and invading the seas, leaving
desolation in their wake. With them
rides a policy of frightfulness, pillage,
murder and calculated cruelty which
fills all civilized mankind with horror
