WASHINGTON, Dec. 14.-(P)-A major Japanese bombing attack on
the heroic Marine garrison of isolated Wake Island was reported turned
back today with destruction ofI two enemy warplanes by the battling
Devil Dogs.
"Tie Marines on Wake Island continue to resist," the Navy said in a
later afternoon communique.
This announcement followed a War Department statement indicating
that the furious Japanese assaults on the Philippines had slackened. Air
activity over the Philippines continues, the Department said, but ground
operations were confined to the Appari, Legaspi and Vigan areas-well
removed from vital centers of defense.
Significantly the )Aar Department added that the general situation was
unchanged. That had been described by an earlier Army communique at{
Manila as "well in hand."

300 Students And Faculty Members Offer
Services In Charity Colleetion
For Needy Families
' The advance guard of a volunteer army of almost 300 students and facul-
ty members blitzkrieged ;the University campus at 7:45 a.m. today in the
initial push of a nine-hour campaign to make the seventh annual Good-
fellow drive a bigger success than any previous drive.
Helping to secure financial aid for many of Ann Arbor's needy, solicitors
will be stationed at various points about the campus until 5 p.m., when the
yearly drive will officially come to a close.
Faculty members as well as students will aid in the campaign, led to
battle by such super-salesmen as Deans Alice C. Lloyd and Joseph A. Burs-
ley, Fielding F. Yost and other prominent professors and instructors.
Already received in the drive, which has the full support of President
Alexander G. Ruthven, are numerous contributions from campus fraterni-
ties, sororities and cooperative hou es, while other _iampus organizations
will take an active part in the selling campaign today.
The sale last year netted a total of $759, against an all-time record of
$1,675. Because last year's returns were so disappointing, leadersnof the
