'Win The War-Win The Peace' Will Be Unique Slogan
% Of Meeting Sponsored By Local SDD Chapter

With the slogan "Win the War-
Win the Peace" studentA, faculty
members and townspeople will meet
in a unique Armistice Day Rally at
8 p.m. Tuesday in the Rackham Audi-
torium.
Featuring music by the University
Band and talks by Prof. Preston Slos-
son of the history department, Prof.
Bryan Rust of Wayne University and
Don O'Connor, '42, the mass meeting,
is being sponsored by the Student
Defenders of Democracy.
Although there has been an Armis-
tice Day rally on the campus almost
every year since 1918, this is the first
time that the cry has not been to
"keep America out of war."
Sponsored, as it is, by an inter-
ventionist student organization, the
meeting this year will call for more
effective aid to Britain, Russia and
China. At the same time, equal stress
is to be placed upon the importance
of obtaining a just and permanent
peace once the Nazis are defeated.
Two of the speakers-Rust and
Low-Cost Living.
Offered Students
There are still a number of vacan-
cies for both room and board in the
cooperative houses on campus and
all interested in living or eating at
one of the houses should contact
Owen Schwam, '43E, at 2-2143.
In spite of the rise in the price of
food and other commodities, the co-
operatives have managed to keep
their rates at a very economical level.
The price range in-the various houses
for both room and board is from
$2.25 to $6.00, and for board alone,
from $1.50 to $3.40.

ed immediate total war against Hit-
ler. They obtained 275 signatures of
faculty*nen here and at Wayne.
Both of them have for years been

the world. and they now feel that
such organization cannot be attained
unless Germany is decisively beaten.

speak from the viewpoint of a stu-

feels that this nation must become
more active in the battle against
fascism.

scheduled to open the program with
selections of a patriotic nature.

Michigan Freshmen Wleet
Former High School Principals

Hopwood
Notes
Thursday afternoon teas attract
mostly graduate students and de-
partmental men, for, as genial Prof.
Roy W. Cowden, chief of the Hop-
wood Room suggests, younger stu-
dents become easily alarmed at the
preponderance iof' grey heads.
Actually, the Room is open to all1
students in the departments of Eng-
lish and Journalism, and occasional
undergrads would be welcome indeed.
Seated around the table at yes-
terday's tea were Professors Here-
ward T. Price, Carlton F. Wells, Louis
I. Bredvold, and Frederick W. Peter-
son, of the English department; El-
oise psychologist Lydon Babcock, who'
is writing fiction, and several gradu-
ate students who ,are planning to en-
ter work in the spring Hopwood com-
petition.

November is Mildred Walker Month.
Miss Walker, who placed first in a,
former Hopwood contest with her
novel, "Fireweed," later. published,
has made the Woman's Home Com-
panion with a short story, "Vienna'
Child."
Her greatest current achievement,{
however, is her jplst published novel,
"Unless the Wine 'turns," a por-
trayal of the rugged Montana coun-
try with which she is so familiar.
The \story is of a forest fire and
its effect 'on five people who are
first on the scene. The change in
their personalities is "as dramatic as
I the physical struggles involved."
"Unless the Wind 'Turns" is, Miss
Walker's fifth book. Many niay re-
mamber her "Dr. Norton's Wife," a
Literary Guild selection, and her 1940[
fiction success, "The Brewers' Big
Horses."
