Now things are different.Russia, 'too, is

But we - those of us who have chosen to

It is true that both groups now desire the de-

with us now so that they may use us for
their own ends. We remember what- they
tried to do - and in some cases succeed-
ed in doing - to the labor unions. And we
do not propose to let them do the same

'Jovial' Harry...
To the Editor:I
We read with amusement the story in Tues-
day's Daily concerning "jovial" Harry Tillotson.
After the Minnesota ticket riot, Mr. Tillotson
neatly passed the blame for inferior tickets to
student scalpers. Now, after the students have
complied with the rules laid down for securing
tickets to the Ohio State game, there has been
no riot, nor is-there fear of excessive scalping. All
because of Mr. Tillotson's secrecy. But, Mr.
Tillotson, the students again have poor seats; as
bad as those for the Minnesota game if not worse.
The bottom has dropped out of Mr. Tillotson's
alibi that 'we, ourselves, are to blame for our
predicament. The only conclusion that we can
draw is that the allotment of seats behind the
goal line to students cannot be blamed on scalp-
ers. What does it take to get a decent seat now-
adays, a gray beard and an '09 after your name?
Congratulations to you, Harry Tillotson, for
being able to keep a secret. Now think up a new
excuse for those !!**&? seats you so "jovially"
hand out to students!

John Van Aken, '44,
Churchill Commits'
WINSTON CHURCHILL has definitely
committed the British Empire to
a declaration of war upon Japan "within the
hour" of the opening of hostilities between the
United States and that Far Eastern country.
At this time, when the Nippon-American crisis
is rapidly approaching, such a statement is not
only very timely from the psychological view-
point, but it finally and positively states the Brit-
ish attitude toward a Pacific war. In the event
that a clash does come about, and informed
Washington quarters feel it is almost inevitable,
the British, in view of Churchill's declaration
must be prepared to use armed force in support
of the United States fleet.
Great Britain will not dare to make only
gestures as she did 'to the tiny Allies that the
Nazis crushed so easily. For this time she will not
be abandoning a small,4nconspicuous nation from
which she expects little help in the winning of
the big show in Europe, but she will be backing
down on a promise to the nation which is her
own life-blood, and which can cut her throat
more effectively than the enemy by cutting off
aid to her.
THE PEOPLE of the United States are going
to expect the full military cooperation of the
British Pacific and Indian fleets on the basis of
the Churchill commitment. And on the fulfill-
ing of this promise will hinge the entire futre
of the war, because it is difficult to see the
American people unting in :an all-out effort to
supply Britain with arms and supplies if that
same Britain fails to make more than a gesture
at fulfilling a promise which she made to Greece,
Poland, Yugoslavia and France, to mention a
few, apd then begged off. No, to be sure of fur-
ther American aid and to prevent a complete
swing to isolationism in this country, Britain
must 9ilfill Churchill's promise.
All too many'Americans are aware of the fact
ghat Britain, supposedly the principal Allied
power has suffered but a small percentage of
the Allied war casualties, and any attempt of the
British Far Eastern patrols to stay in port in a
Japanese War while the American fleet does the
fighting will be disastrous to the pro-British
sentiment hitherto prevalent in this country.
This will be one case where Britain will have
to fight, because it is one time when her ally can
hold her to her word.

Free Enterprise
After The War .*. ,

enters the war or not, the problem
of- a post-war depression must be solved im-
mediately, before it is too late to do aythn
Before the war began the- country still had
10,000,000 unemployed, and a tremendous na-
tional debt, but with the advent of the defense
program our debt has increased to staggering,
proportions, which we will have t face after-
wards. The employment situation will be worse
than ever when the defense boom goes back to
P1eople realize this, and a plan to save free
enterprise, one of the fundamentals of our de-
mocracy, has been formed by Charles E. Wil-
son, president of the General Electric Company.
HE SUGGESTS that, we hold a congress of
representatives of industry, agriculture, fi-
nance, commerce and labor unions soon to form-
ulate ┬░rules for peacetime industrial and commer-
cial development. These rules must be approved
by the majority of the citizens, and yet should
work in accord with the government.
The Congress would provide for unemploy-
ment with new businesses evolved from the re-
cent scientific discoveries uncovered in defense
work. This would cut down the dangers of re-
duced purchasing power.
Each company engaged in manfacturing ar-
ticles for defense.must devote part of its brain
power to a future conversion of it's defense job
into one of these new businesses. For example,
the field is wide open for plastics and new
synthetic materials which will make America
more self-sufficient in the future, and farmers
can grow new products to be used in these.

WASHINGTON-There is a German smuggler
operating in the Caribbean off the coast of
This was the inside reason for the President's
sudden transfer of the entire Cgast Guard to the
Navy-the Coast Guard's ships and planes are
needed to track down the Nazi intruder.
Sensational feature about the smuggler is that
she is a former U. S. vessel-the 800-ton Diesel-
engined iyacht that once belonged to A. Atwater
Kent, Philadelphia radio magnate.
The one-time pleasure ship now is being
operated under the Panamanian flag out of Vera
Crqaz,, Mexico, by Nazi agents in that city, and is
being used to transport high test gasoline and
mercury to small Caribbean Islands where Jap-
anese ships collect the smuggled strategic sup-
THE YACHT recently unloaded 1,000 flasks of
mercury at an island which for military rea-
sons must be nameless.
The former luxury craft came into possession
of the Nazis by a circuitous route which Intelli-
gence experts uncovered only a few weeks ago.
The purAiase was made by a shipping company
whose main office is in Vera Criz and has a
branch office in New Orleans, where transfer of
title took place. The price was $18,000.
Fortunately for Intelligence, the payment was
made in J. S. bills of $1000 denomination. From
the serial numbers, the bills were traced back
to a Vera Cruz Bank. There is was learned the
money had been withdrawn from the account of
the leading Nazi business house in Mexico, and
turned over to the shipping company that bought
the yacht.
Nazi Owners
Subsequent investigation revealed that all the
stockholders of this conpany were Germans; also
that the two top qfficers were Spaniards, one a
naturalized Mexican and the other a naturalized
American citizen.
NOW, every movement of the yacht is watched,
but there is nothing the United States can
do about the ship unless she enters American
Waters. So far the vessel has been very careful to
stay within Mexican territorial waters.
BefQre. U. S. authorities uncovered the Nazi
ownership of the yacht' and the nature of its
operations, however, it made three trips to Cuba.
It also docked several times at Panama. The
crew of the vessel, from the captain down, are
Spaniards recently brought from Spain expressly
for this purpose.
Note-The yacht is one of several to which de-
posgd pro-Nazi President Arias gave Panamanian
/ If You Like Corn,
Here's Plenty Of It
A CROP of good ripe corn for this week-but as
corn it's essentially good, and most of it
danceable, with a noticeable absence of hot stuff.
For Decca, Ella Fitzgerald blends her soul-
stirring voice with a rhythm and sax background
for her long-awaited rendition of Jim. The flip-
over side is This Love of Mine, a prospective pop
tune with some possibilities. Latter ballad is
also recorded by Stanley Kenton on a Decca disc.
This Stanley Kenton is a new band which seems
to specialize in instrumental numbers. In addi-
tion to This Love of Mine, this week's releases by
Kenton are The Nango, Adios and Taboo. Some

of the instrumentation is hot, but the band is
too cumbersome and bulky to produce any sort
of flexibility.
ARTIE SHAW'S new Bluebird recording of
Hoagy Carmichael's Rockin' Chair is good
for dancing and definitely built to commercial
proportions. Same goes for If I Love Again on
the other side. Teddy Powell gives out with two
"You Are My Sunshine-type songs:. When Your
Old Wedding Ring Was New and Sweethearts or
Strangers. Lyrics are easy to learn, and they'd
make a fine present for Grandma. (Bluebird),.
Sidney "Pops" Bechet 'deserts his hot jazz
kick for two commercial Victor sides-LaughiW,
In Rhythm and Rip Up the Joint-loud and rol-
licking. The Bing of Crosby has a super-modern
version of Clementine to add to his Decca reper-
toire- it's wacky but nice. Day Dreaming is the
smooth, slow, Bingy ballad on the reverse.
I Struck a Match In the Dark is the latest
Vaughn Monroe job.. Soft and romantical-like.
The B side is the North American version of the
South American Negra Soy, renamed Something
New. It's O.K.
Suggested title for a seasonal song-When It's
Christmas on the Isthmus. - D. L.
eminent should also cut down on it's non-defense
activity spending.
Our present Social Security program should
be expanded, which means that unemployment
and old age insurance should be increased to
protect this section of our people.
FINALLY Mr. Wilson asks that corporations
be allowed to put aside certain reserves to
provide for the tremendous transformation they
will have to make.

VOL. LI. No. 39
Publication in the Daiy Official
Bulletin is constructive notice to all
members of the University.
Student Tea: President and Mrs.
Ruthven will be at home to students
this afternoon from 4 to 6 o'clock.
To All Faculty Members and Others
1. Old Age Annuities. Since 1918
it has been a !condition of employ-
ment as a Faculty member of the
University of Michigan, except for
instructors of less than three years'
standing for whom the provision is
optional, that such Faculty member
shall purchase an old-age annuity
from the Teachers Insurance and
Annuity Association The object of
this annuity is provision for the
teacher after he shall have passed
the retirement age. The annuity
premium payment required from each
Faculty member is 5% of any annual
salary not exceeding $5000, or thus a
maximum, premium of $250. Faculty
members may devote as much more
of their salaries to annuity premiums
as they desire. The University mat-
ches the annuity premium up to an
annual sum not in excess of $250,
thus within the 5% limit doubling
the amount of the annuity purchased.
2. Any person in the employ of the
University may at his own cost pur-
chase annuities from the Association
in any amounts. The University it-
self, however, will contribute to the
expense of such purchase of annui-
ties only as stated in (1) above.
3. Life Insurance.. Any person in
th employ of the University, either
as a Faculty member or otherwise,
unless debarred by his medical exam-
ination, may, at his own option and
expense, purchase life insurance from
the Teachers Insurance and Annuity
Association at its published rates. All
life insurance premiums are borne
by the individual himself. The Uni-
versity makes no contribution toward
life insurance and has nothing to do
with the life insurance feature ex-
cept that it will, if desired by the
insured, deduct premiums monthly
andremit theusame to the Associa-
4. Monthly Premium Payments. The
University accounting offices will as
a matter of accommodation to faculty
members or employees of the Uni-
versity, who desire to pay either an-
nuity premiums or insurance pre-
miums monthly, deduct such pre-
miums from the payroll in monthly
installments. In the case of the so-
called "academic roll" premiums for
the months of July, August, Septem-
ber and October will be deducted
from the double payroll of June 30.
While the accounting offices do not
solicit this work, still it will be cheer-
fully assumed where desired.
5. The University has no arrange-
ments with any life insurance or
annuity organization except the
Teachers Insurance and Annuity
Association of America and contri-
butions will not be made by the Uni-
versity nor can premium payments
be deducted except in the case of
annuity or insurance policies of this
6. The general administration of the
annuity and insurance business has
been placed in the hands of the
Secretary of the University by the
Please communicate with the un-
dersigned if you have not arranged
for any and all annuities required
under your appointment.
