Michigan Has
To Jap Attack
Automobile Manufacturers
Speed Defense Work,
Reduce All Car Quotas
(By The Associated Press).
Through many channels, Michigan
poured out a vigorous reply this week
to the challenge of a Japanese at-
tack upon the nation's Pacific pos-
Automotive manufacturers pledged
willing compliance with government
curtailment of civilian production,
indicated there would' be a complete,
though temporary holiday in the
manufacture of passenger cars under
reduced quotas and devoted all their
efforts to speeding up defense work.
Public officials turned to the task
of civilian defense organization and
afinounced today ,at the end of the
firstrweek of war, that Detroit was
better prepared to protect its civil
population than any other city in the
United States with the possible ex-
ception of New York. The pronounce-
ment was that of Glenn C. Richards,
head of Detroit's new municipal de-
patinent of defense and Mayor Ed-
ward Jeffries' right hand man in that
field in the state's largest city.
At the same time, Mr. Man-on-the-
Street, his wife and relatives poured
their savings into defense savings
bonds. Unmarried sons and brothers
and uncles dashed to recruiting offi-
ces in record numbers, disregarding
the order in which the draft would
call eligibles.
Tfie Michigan defense savings com-
mittee reported today that sales of
bonds and stamps throughout the
state have doubled, and perhaps trip-'
led; since the outbreak of hostilities
last Sunday. The committee's report
confirmed the earlier findings of an
Associated Press survey.
"Money is flocking to the colors
jist as men are crowding the recruit-
ing stations," said State Chairman
Frank N. Isbey. "Uncle Sam need not
have any fear as to how Michigan will
respond - the answer is already

County Group
Will Organize
Civilins Here
Volunteer Defense *Office
is Planned By Council
For Local Armory
You' won't even get the traditional
dollar a year, but civilian volunteer
work is "a job you can't evade if this
country is to survive this emergency."
With Civilian Defense Director La-
Guardia's words symbolizing its cam-
paign, the Waitenaw County De-
fense Council will open volunteer reg-
istration offices in the Fifth Avenue
Armory as soon as their organization
has been completed.
The University has already been
represented in the plan, according to
Mrs. Theophile Raphael, chairman
of the drive. Dean Alice Lloyd, head
of the Universit-y women's defense
committee, and Dr. Margaret Bell of
the Health Service have been named
to aid in organizing women for war-
time work.
. Besides a civilian morale finction,
the program will train men. and wo-
men in such fields as first aid, nutri-
tion, and the more remote jobs of
fire-fighting and communications
One of the main points stressed by
the council is the value of its pio-
gram to a peace-time community.
LaGuardia has called civilian defense
activities "the same sort of things we
have always done to protect our com-
munities against disease, malnutrition
and other social ills."
Instructions as to the time and
method of registration will soon be
issued to interested groups and in-

Americans In London Cheer War Declaration Against Nazis
n A'

The news of declaration of war between Germany and the United States brought cheers from this group
of Americans serving with the armed forces in Britain. They are the American Eagle squadron's London
club. This photo was sent by radio from London.

attack on Pearl Harbor last Sunday.
Six army fliers were cited for per-
fcrrning spectacular feats of heroism
in the face of superior numbers.
One of the heroes. Second Lieut.
George S. Welch of Wilmington, Del.,
accounted for four of the enemy
planes after performing what the War
Department proudly called "maneu-
vers worthy of a veteran fighter."
News Heartens Capital
The news from Manila that Japa-
nese troops which had gained a foot-
hold at Lingayen, on the west coast
of Luzon north of Manila, had been
wiped out heartened the Capital, be-
cause it is in that general area that
strategists figure the Japanese must
make their most menacing bid to
smash the Philippines defenses.
Though the Japanese hold other
beach-heads on Luzon's west coast.
the repulse at Lingayen was believed
to have struck a hard blow at their
generalstrategic plan. That the forces
of Lieut. General Douglas MacArthur
have spotted another element in this
plan and are doing everything possi-
ble to thwart it was indicated in a
communique issued by the War De-
Japs Bomb Clark Field
After asserting that the Japanese
had bombed Clark Field, north of
Manila, and Cebu. a city and island
300 miles southwest of Luzon, the
communique added:
"The enemy plan is now clearly re-
vealed as an attempt to secure im-
provised air bases outside of the area
encompassed py our ground defenses."
There was no official comment here
on the latest Japanese claims that
a total of three United States battle-
ships were sunk in the raid on Hawaii
last Sunday, or that the Japanese
had captured, or all-but captured,
Britain's crown colony of Hongkong
off the south China coast.
The Japanese, having previously
boasted that the battleships Okla-
homa and West Virginia had been
sunk at Pearl Harbor, added the
U.S.S. Arizona to that roster today.
Officials here have acknowledged the
loss of only one old battleship.
Tacitly, the Japanese admitted that
the embattled maries still held little
Wake Island in the Pacific.

(Continued from Page 1)
quarters declared that the fall of
Hongkong was imminent. The crown
colony nestles on spraddling Kowloon
Peninsula and a cluster, of islands
just off the south China coast, the
largest of which is the island of
(Without any supporting an-
nouncement at the time from official
Japanese sources, the Japanese am-
bassador to Argentina said Hongkong
had been captured.)
The Japanese claimed complete oc-
cupation of Kowloon - apparently
meaning both the peninsula and the
city of Kowloon which lies across a
narrow stretch of water from the is-
land of Hongkong.
They declared that Kowloon's
"four miles-long and supposedlyim-
pregnable defenses have been shatter-
ed." Hongkong, second only to Singa-
pore as a British Far Eastern naval
base, was said to be under an in-
cessant rain of Japanese bombs.
(There was no direct word from
Hongkong but London admitted the
possibility that the colonial defense
forces might have fallen back to pre-
arranged positions.)
The Japanese now say that the Ari-
zona was sunk in the initial onslaught
at Pearl Harbor last Sunday, along
with the battleships Oklahoma and
West Virginia. It took them nearly a
week to claim the Arizona. 4
Litvino f Uses Slang
To Pan Hitler, Nazis
judicious admixture of American
slang was incorporated with precise
English in the statement today by
Maxim Litvinoff, Soviet ambassador,
on Russia's position toward the war.
He said':
By Hitler's promises the Red Army
should, six weeks ago, have been
"washed out."
A German defeat in Libya would
not "settle his (Hitler's) hash."
The Russians would "polish off" the
Nazis on the Eastern Front.
Correspondents should not, "get
sore at me" if he didn't answer all
questions. p.
