A New Meaning
For Armistice Day...



Talks, Parade

Rally Of SDD
Intervention Group Panel
Of Speakers To Include
Slosson, Rust, O'Connor
Peace After Victory
To Keynote Meeting
For the first time since World
War I, students and townspeople'
wills take part in an Armistice Day
Rally which asks not for immediate
'peace, but for peace only after the
complete defeat of Hitler has been
Under the auspices of the Student
Defenders of Democracy, the rally
will be held at 8 p.m. today in the
Rackham Auditorium' and will fea-
ture talks by Prof. Preston Slosson
of the history department, Prof.
Bryan Rust of Wayne University and
Don O'Connor, '42.
At 7:55 p.m. the University Band
will form in front of Morris Hall and
march up State Street to the Rack-
ham Building. Under the direction of
Prof. William D. Revelli they will play
several marching tunes and conclude
with the "Star Spangled Banner."
Wants World Organization
Professor Slosson, long an "advo-
cate of world organization to guar-
antee the peace of the world, is
scheduled to talk on "Make the Peace
He has also constantly urged more
active American assistance in the
fight against Germany, for he feels
that a lasting peace cannot be ob-
tained until Hitler has been defeated.
It will be the first time that Rust
and Slossop-collaborators in com-
posing and circulating the recent
professors' petition which called for
"total war"-have ever appeared on
the same platform.
The two men have somewhat simi-
lar careers in that Rust, too, is a long-
time advocate of world organization
and, more recently, of intervention.
In the last war Rust was awarded
the Croix de Guerre by the French
government for bravery under fire.
H* has once more been accepted with
overseas rating by the U. S. Army
and expects to be called to the service
in the near future.
Student's Viewpoint,
O'Connor, who is treasurer of the
Student Defenders of Democracy, will
look at the war situation and the
peace proposals from the viewpoint of
a student of draft age. Although he
is certain to be called if this country
enters the fight, he believes that we
must aid Britain and Russia even
at the risk of war.
Other activities of the Michigan
chapter include petition drives and
faculty and student lectures. It is
at present, in cooperation with" the
Student Senate, planning a week-end
party for the soldiers in near-by army
camps. Fort Custer, Grosse Ile and
Selfridge Field have all been extend-
ed invitations.

To Speak.Here
Anne O'Hare McCormick
To Talk On 'Ourselves
And Europe' Thursday
"You're here again, what's going to
happen now?",
This is the question frequently
posed to nne O'Hare McCormick by
her journalistic colleagues whenever
she arrives at a foreign capital, for
breaking-news and Mrs. McCormick
seem to be travelling partners.
But as the first woman to win the
coveted Pulitzer Prize for news-writ-
ing, she usually finds the words that
make a discreet answer as to why
things seem to happen wherever she
is present.
Mrs. McCormick, traditionally
credited by men correspondents with
an uncanny intuition about coming
events in international affairs, ill
give the second Oratorical lecture on
"Ourselves and Europe" at 8:15 p.m.
Thursday in Hill Auditorium.
Her autobiography was once told
by her in a single, sentence: "I have

RALEIGH, N. C., Nov. 10-UP-An
A24 dive bomber, one of the Army's
latest types, crashed into an Army en-
campment and burned tonight near
the Raleigh Airport, and the pilot,'
Second Lieut. H. P. Taylor, was killed.'
An undisclosed number of enlisted
men were either burned or injured as
the plane crashed through a clump of
trees and came to rest on a mess"tent.
Several tents were set afire as the
bomber burst into flames.
An Army spokesman said that only
two persons-one of them the radio
operator on the plane-were seriously
hurt, but that several other men were
burned. At least four men were taken
to Raleigh hospitals.
The hospitals said, however, they
were under instructions not to give

Strong Warning Expected
To Fgrestall Hasty Acts
Or Invasions In Pacific
(By The Associated Press)
Britain was pledged yesterday by
Prime Minister Churchill to spring
upon Japan instantly if it became in-
volved in war with the United States,
and this strong and naked warning
was expected to make the Japanese
think even longer than heretofore
before spreading hostilities to the
Churchill's commitment, as sharp-
ly bald and unconditional as the mu-
tual commitments of Japan with Ger-
many and Italy are dully clouded
with ifs, ands and buts, came at
the most psychological of times and
almost wholly overshadowed the in-
conclusive progress of the war in
Forhe spoke while the extraordin-
ary Japanese Envoy, Saburo Kurusu,
was en route to Washington in what
Tokyo has implied yas a final effort

dispel any last notion that the Bri-
tish were too busy in the Atlantic to
act strongly and effectively in con-
junction with the mighty American
Pacific Fleet.
In effect he told the Japanese a
war would be suicide for them, sug-
gesting with a chilly casualness the
enormously preponderant American-
British .naval and economic power
that could be brought to bear, al-
though not specifically' mentioning
the fact that about all the Axis could
give Japan directly in such a con-
flict would be the best of wishes.

Pacifist Society
To Meet Today
For Discussion
Non-interventionists, isolationists
and pacifists are invited to attend a
iiscussion and meditation meeting to
commemorate Armistice Day under
the auspices of the Fellowship of
Reconciliation at 7 p.m. today in
Lane Hall.
The Rev. C. H. Loucks of the Bap-
tist Church will address the meeting
briefly. His talk will be followed
by a discussion of the problem of
world peace from the standpoint of
non-intervention in the war and
then a period of silent meditation
on the subject.
The meeting will be open to the
public. The local chapter of the Fel-
lowship' of Reconciliation which is
sponsoring the program is headed by
Marshall Palley, '42F&C.
The F.O.R. is an international or-
ganization of pacifists who are not
affiliated with the international
peace churches. It seeks to formu-
late programs for reconciliation of
conflicts in social and international

he thus laid the challenge :
"They (the United States) are do-
ing their utmost to find ways of pre-
serving peace in the Pacific. I do
not know whether their efforts will
be successful, but should they fail I
take this occasion to say-and it is
my duty to say it-that should the
United States become involved in war
with Japan the British declaration
would follow within the hour."
In the Russian campaign it ap-
peared last night that Hitler was
again stressing his offensives upon
Moscow and Leningrad, where earlier
he had seemingly accepted the neces-
sity of sitting down for the winter,
and that in the Crimea the Rermans
were being beaten off along the ap-
proaches to Sevastopol.
The Soviet Command's communi-
que for early today did not mention
the Leningrad action, but told of
"particularly fierce' fighting about
Tula, 100 miles t6 the south of the
capital, as well as in the Crimea.

Naval officials said they had not

House Sounds Strength
On Neutrality Vote
WASHINGTON, Nov. 10-(/P)-Al-
though they expressed confidence the
neutrality revision bill would be pass-
ed, House Democratic leaders began
a quiet poll of their membership to-
day to determine the exact prospects.
Disclosure of the survey and the
statements of well-informed legisla-
tors lent strength to a growing belief
among House members that the vote,
scheduled for Thursday, would be
much closer than the leaders origin-
ally anticipated.,
Speaker Rayburn said after a
White House conference with Presi-
dent Roosevelt, however, that "We
still think we have the votes."
The House Rules Committee clear-
ed the way for two days of debate to
begin Wednesday on the bill, which
passed the Senate Friday night. Be-
sides authorizing arMing of mer-
chantmen (a step which the House
previously had approved) it would
permit them to sail into combat zones
and ports of belligerents.
Although members said the com-
mittee's action was unanimous, it
came after a vigorous demand' by
Rep. Cox (Dem"-Ga.), a supporter
of the bill, that the Administration
take the lead in action to prevent
strikes in defense industries.

Secrecy Is Tillotson's Formula
For Outwitting Ticket Scalpers,

Members of the class of '45 are
