Nazis Play Up
Part Of Finns
In New Drive
Germans Seek To Slash
Russian Communication
With Northern Harbors
Tokyo Newspaper
'Denounces Britain
HELSINKI, Wednesday, Nov.
12- P-The Finnish Govern-
ment rejected today the United
States' warning to stop fighting
Russia or risk the loss of Ameri-
can friendship.
(By The Associated Press)
Finland's part in the re-invigorated
German drive against Russia's Arctic
supply routes was played up by the
Aermn press and military commen-
tators today soon after the Finns an-
nounced they had replied to an Amer-
ican demand that Finland get out of
the war.
The nature of the Finnish reply to
Washington has not yet been made
public, but the German publicity
spotlight was turned on, the Finnish
r "ar effort with perhaps greater in-
tensity than ever before.
The Germans avowedly were seek-
ing to slash Soviet communication
with the Arctic ports of Murmansk
and Archangel with smashes east-
ward from the Leningrad area and
Lake Ladoga over frigid and hostile
terrain, bitterly defended.
No thinking came from Berlin-or
Helsinki-as to whether this hastened
campaign might mean Finland was
going to 'retire, thus hurrying the
German hand, or whether it was
intended primarily to demonstrate
German-Finnish solidarity to the
It was indicated in Helsinki that
the Finnish reply would be made pub-
lic today simultaneously in Washing-
ton and Helsinki.
The German press devoted major
attention to the Arctic front, though
men ibnin g continued warfare in the
southern areas, as well.
On the central front about Moscow,
however, it appeared the invader was
being roughly knocked about and was
doing well even to hold his ground.
Tokyo Press Denounces
Churchill's Challenge
The day brought from the Japan-
ese Government only a profound si-
lence in the face of 'Winston Church-
ill's extraordinary challenge-that if
Japan got involved in war with the
United States she would certainly be
fighting Britain too within the hour.
While official Tokyo was thinking
it over, the Japanese press was de-
nouncing England, but not with ex-
traordinary violence, and making it
clear that Japan had not given up
hope of coming to terms with the
United States.
"Britain," said the newspaper Yo-
miuri, "is dancing to the tune of the
United Sttes and digging her own
grave . . . The Japanese people are
burning with anger yet remaining in
complete silence, trusting the Gov-
ernment's high policy and iron will to
cope with the situation .
Ticket Option
For Studefts

Is Courtesy
Permitting students to purchase
three tickets with every coupon is
only a courtesy extended by the Uni-
veisity as long as tickets are available,
Harry Tillotson, athletic ticket man-
ager, asserted yesterday.
This statement was made in re-
%ponse to complaints received by The
Daily, charging that Tillotson had
not only outsmarted the scalpers but
also the students who had legitimate
ticket demands, by the new ticket
' arrangements.
The students claimed that the Ath-
letic Department should have an-
announced, at the time the new ticket
distribution method was put into ef-
fect, the deadline for purchasing
three extra tickets. It was further
asserted that the only deadline the
students knew about was the one for
class preference.
Tillotson pointed out that at the
beginning of'the season all students
had received a notice with their cou-

Unstinted Aid
Is Requested
AtSDD Rally
Rust Emphasizes Dangers
To American Freedom
In Case Of British Loss
Speakers Demand
Victory In Peace
"Are we not all warmongers when
there is something to fight for?"
challenged Prof. Bryan Rust of
Wayne University as he spoke to
more than 600 students and towns-
people gathered at an Armistice Day
rally which demanded that America'
build now for peace after victory.
Professor Rust maintained that
American independence and freedom
would not survive a British defeat
ten years, asked that we pledge our
immediate, unstinted aid to all those
who fight the comon enemy.
Politics must be forgotten, insisted
Professor Rust as he scored those
who would "snipe at the Commander-
in-Chief of our national defense."
Winning Peace Needed
Prof. Preston W. Slosson opened
the rally declaring that we must
avoid our mistake of 1918 and win
the peace as well as the war, charging
that unless we do this those who
fought in World War I will, after all,
have died in vain.
Further stating that the true paci-
fist must realize that only a demo-
cratic victory would prevent the con-
stant recurrence of war, Slosson
asked recognition of the fact that
Nazism lives and thrives on war.
Adding the student's viewpoint,
Don O'Connor, '42, declared that "if
the democracies need money, we will
lend, if they need gifts, we will give,
and if they need men we will go."
Youth Summoned
O'Connor emphasized that this is
the first time that the younger gen-
eration has been called upon to de-
fend the priceless heritage of free-
dom which it has received through
the sacrifices and toil of its prede-
Professor Rust, recently accepted
for overseas service by the Army,
asked that college students refrain
from doing the obviously heroic by
rushing off to enlist. He stated that
their job lay in building for the peace
which would implement the victory
once it had been won.
The rally, sponsored by the Student
Defenders of Democracy, was held
in the Rackham Building and was
preceded by several selections by the
Michigan Band. Homer Swander, '43,
president of the SDD, acted as chair-
man and introduced the speakers.
He recalled that Sergeant Alvin
York, renowned hero of the last war,
also had spoken near the Tob of
the Unknown Soldier recently and
had said that some people ask World
War veterans: "What did it get you?"

Roosevelt Speech
Marks Armistice
WASHINGTON, Nov. 11. -(p)-
President Roosevelt told an Armistice
Day audience at Arlington National
Cemetery today that the people of
America believed liberty was worth
fighting for and if need be would
"fight eternally to hold it."
"Ths duty we owe," he said, "hot to
ourselves alone, but to the many
dead who died to gain our freedom
for us-to make the world a place
where freedom can live and grow in-
to the ages."
The President's was the principal
address at American Legion services,
observing the twenty-third anniver-
sary of the end of the first Worl
War, held before the tomb of the
Unknown Soldier and within the cir-
cular Arlington Amphitheatre of
gleaming white marble.
Mr. Roosevelt spoke of those who
gave up their lives in 1917 and 1918
and the reasons why they had to die.
"We know," he declared solemnly,
"that these men died to save their
country from a terrible danger of
that day. We know, because we face
that danger once again on this day."
They died to make the world safe,
the President said, adding:
"And if, by some fault of ours who
lived beyond the war, its safety has
again been threatened then the obli-
gation and the duty are ours. It is
in our charge now, as it was Ameri-
ca's charge after the Civil War, to
see to it 'that these dead shall not
have died in vain'."~
Before thetomb of the Unknown
Soldier, in honoring whom America
honors all her World War Dead, the
Chief Executive stood bareheaded on
a windy hillside overlooking the
Capital while his naval aide, Capt.
John R. Beardall, placed a wreath
of white chrysanthemums and green
ferns against the sarcophagus. An
Army bugler sounded "taps" and the
notes echoed across the wooded ridge.
The Chief Executive moved, then,
into the amphitheatre, where hun-
dreds of people were gathered and
American flags hungdfrom every
opening of the colonnade.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 11-0)-An-

shop in captive coal mines, CIO Pres-
ident Philip Murray and an aide re-
'signed from the Board today, and re-
ports were current that the Army was
preparing to cope with any new
"emergency" in the pits.
From Pittsburgh came word an
Army intelligence center had been
established in that area. This gave
rise to speculation the Army might
take over the mines if Jonh L. Lewis,
United Mine Workers head, signaled
for a renewal of the strike which
was halted pending the Mediation
Board's decision.
However, no *confirmation was
forthcoming fromz the War Depart-
ment. At Pittsburgh it was explained
simply that precautionary steps were
being taken to survey the coal fields
an keep in touch with miners and
Murray and Thomas Kennedy, Sec-
retary-Treasurer of the mine work-
ers, resigned from the Mediation
Board and sent a letter to President
Roosevelt denouncing the 9 to 2 de-
cision against the union shop.
Denial Of Union's Rights
They said it was a denial of the'
"union's right of normal growth and
legitimate aspirations" and confir-
mation of the "traditional open shop
policy of the anti-labor employers."
The two men, who were the only
Board members to vote for the union .

impossible for labor to retain any
confidence in its (the Board's) future

mnitted "arch treason" by Voting
against the union shop.
Members Voted Against Measure,
These members, Murray said, had
5upported the conteption of the mine
7orkels, had advanced arguments in
their favor and had moved their-
adoption.Yet he added, they voted
yesterday* against their own motion
and i their own reasoning without
warnin .
Murray also said four CIO official&
who were serving as alternate mem-
bers of the Board also had resigned
and that one more had told him he
was going to resign.
Those who had resigned he listed
-s John Brophy, of the National CIO
Headquarters in Washington; Cinton

The man who was going to resign,
he said, was Sherman Dalrymple;

3iates said he understood the Army
mad been surveying a coal mine in
he Pittsburgh area, a statement
vhich also contributed to the current

The entire two million dollar plant
including the cafeteria, kitchens,

Everybody is invited, according to
Jim Edmunds, '43E, of the Union
executive staff, general chairman of
the Open House.

This usually ultra-quiet county was
thoroughly aroused yesterday by an
announcement of Circuit Judge
George W. Sample that a one-man
grand jury will investigate gambling
conditions throughout Washtenaw.
Following action taken by the pros-
ecutor, George Meader, in a petition
filed with the court Oct. 30 which
stated that he had received informa-
tion "concerning gambling and the
maintenance of gaming rooms and
gambling equipment" and "the main-
tenance of selling pools and books or
devices for registeing bets" and "re-
lated offenses" Judge Sample author-
ized the inquiry, but public announce-
ment was withheld until yesterday.
At the organization session yester-
day, Prosecutor Meader, Assistant

Sessions of the grand jury, held
behind closed doors, will be called
whenever the information at hand
warrants it. The Judge said that the
investigation was not being directed
against any one locale, but that com-
plaints had been received from all
parts of the county and everyone
would be investigated.
Prpsecutor Meader explained the
grand jury action on the grounds
that because of the secrecy of the
actions it has been difficult for law
enforcement officers to apprehend
the offenders. Furthermore, he said,
owing to the nature of the offense,
people are unwilling to volunteer in-
