greatly decrease our armament aid to
Britain and Russia, since we are now
able to anticipate full production-
enough for our own needs and those
of our allies.
Prof. Albert Hyma of the history
department, who has just finished a;
history of the role of the Dutch in
the Far East, hoped that this new
turn in American affairs would bring
a better understanding of the iipor-
tance ,of this country's stake in the
In his opinion the United States
should concentrate on crushing
Japan-for the Dutch East Indies
which are now endangered furnish
many of our most vital defense sup-
plies. He added that a large section
of the Dutch navy is now stationed
in the East Indies ready to act in
conjunction with the United States
and Britain.
An immediate decrease in the num-
ber of strikes will mark labor's reac-
tion to the Far Eastern crisis, in the
opinion of William Haber, professor
of labor economics. Responsible labor
leaders -like responsible isolationist
leaders in Congress--were unaware of
the gravity of the situation in the
Pacific, Professor Haber stated. Now'
that the threat has become apparent,
labor will cooperate fully, he said.
As to the Smith anti-strike bill
now before Congress, Professor Ha-
ber believes the necessity for such
,legislation is now greatly lessened.
However, Congress will probably
vote the President broad war-time
powers to settle strikes on his own
responsibility in order that war pro-
duction will .not be impeded, he

'Iron-Men' Still Awake
After 100 Hour Duel
The University of Michigan's two
sleepless iron-men had moved into
the 100th hour of their own private,
war against sleep by press-time today.
Bob Mitchell, '45A, of Benton Har-
bor, and Clair Van Etten, '43E, of
Gowand, N.Y., are more determined
than ever to "fight to the last hour"
for the $5 bet they have between
them that each can outlast the other.
Wearing dark glasses and needing
a shave, Bob Mitchell admitted that
"the situation was still a deadlock"
but added: "I am confident in this
grave crisis that my huge reserve
strength will wear down my oppon-
ent before another day is through.,"
Roommate Clair Van Etten is be-
ginning to complain of "light-head-
edness" but denies that his position
is undergoing terrific bombardment
and that he will soon give way to
superior force. Pointing to his third
pack of cigarettes in the last 24
hours, he issued this terse communi-
que: "These weapons will carry me to
ultimate victory."

Local FirmsI
Are Prepared
For Sabotage
A war emergency announcement'
from Washington yesterday ordering
all defense plants to take "proper
measures" against sabotage finds
Ann Arbor industries fully prepared.
Chief of Police Sherman Morten-

men of necessary precautionary
measures, but many local companies'
have been guarding against monkey
wrenches and emery dust for over a

terday that "we have received pre-1
vious instruction as to what means
to take in an emergency." LaPointe's
firm, makers of an improved gun-+
boring machine tool, also reported a
government order last week for
"heavier equipment to make a new
type of artillery weapon."
Planning to fence its entire prop-
erty, the Buhr Machine Tool Com-
pany will soon institute identifica-
tion badges for all workers.
International Industries also re-
ported worker identification, along
with a four-page FBI form which
must be filled out by new employes.
Night watchmen and plant guards
have already been added to local per-
sonnel forces, with several smaller
plants relying on familiarity withem-

Alert For Raid
Aircraft Plants Prepared
With Listening Devices
The army and navy went on a war
basis on the Pacific seaboard today.
All leaves were cancelled, all fur-
loughs revoked, and every man was
instructed to report to his station.
The Japanese bomb attacks on
Pearl Harbor and Manila, coming
with stunning suddenness, reacted
like a trigger pull to set the sea force
and harbor defense at the alert.
The commandant of the three naval
districts on the west coast appealed
by every medium for every officer and
man to report to his post.
NEW YORK, Dec. 7-(AP)-A naval
official who declined to be quoted
said today that the Navy Department
had sent out an urgent call to all
officers on leave to report at once to
naval districts in which they are lo-
The second corps army area head-
quarters here revoked, all leaves and

Not Worried
About Mother
Although his mother is living in
Honolulu, Dick Emory, '42, an Ameri-
can resident of the Hawaiian Islands
for the past 15 years, isn't worried.
Most of the white population of
Honolulu, Emory explained, live in
the valleys of Oahu Island. These
valleys were not the points of the
Japanese attacks. It is possible, he
said that the heaviest casualties have
taken place in the newly-built resi-
dential sections outside the naval
area of Pearl Harbor.
This residential area was construct-
ed by the Unitted States Government



meet the New York Giants, eastern to house the large numbers of labor-
titlists, for the league championship ers who had come to Hawaii to work

Dec. 21.
The Bears came from behind in the
last five minutes of the fourth quar-
ter for two touchdowns and a victory.
The Cardinals had gone ahead, 24-21,
on the opening play of the final period
and for the next 10 minutes it looked
like they would win by that score.
But the great Bear machine was
equal to the task. Power plays by
Bob Swisher, Norman Standlee and
George McAfee carried the ball 23
yards, and then the Bears called on
their great passer, Sid Luckman, to do
the rest.
Dodgers Upset Giants
NEW YORK, Dec. 7.-(A)-It was
"Tuffy Leemans Day" at the Polo
Ground for the New York Giants
fullback today, but plungin' Pug Man-
ders stole the show as the Brooklyn
Dodgers upset their uptown rivals 21
to 7 to close out the National Profes-
sional Football League season.
Before the National League's larg-
est crowd of the year-55,051-the
former Drake University line-bucker
scored all three Dodger touchdowns.
The Giants were saved from a shut
out when Hank Soar heaved a 60 yard
touchdown pass to Kay Eakin on the
end zone with 24 seconds to go.
Redskins Win
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7. -(/)-
Slingin' Sammy Baugh rifled three
touchdown passes to give the Wash-
ington Redskins a 20-14 victory over
the Philadelphia Eagles in a National
Pro League football game today.
"Baugh connected with Joe Aguirre

on the defense projects in Pearl Har-
bor. According to Emory, these pro-
jects have almost completely changed
the external appearance of the har-
bor within the past year and a half.
The Japanese assault, Emory em-
phasized, must have come as complete
surprise to the majority of the Ha-
waiian population. When he left the
islands in September, most people
thought that the Nipponese would
not be audacious enough to attack
such an apparently impregnable for-
Questioned about the loyalty of the
Japanese living in Hawaii, Emory
declared that most Americans there
were of the opinion that the younger
generation, educated in American
schools and instilled with the ideals
of 'democracy, would remain loyal to
the United States.
