VFPor 10 Billions
War-Fund Issue Approved
By Both Houses; Small
WASHINGTON, Dec. 14.-AP)-The
first war fund bill-a ten-billion-
dollar item for more planes, ships,
guns and other equipment for battle
-is expected to get swift and final
approval from both branches of Con-
gress tomorrow.
The appropriation bill, in addition
to carrying funds to equip an army of
2,000,000 men and supply essential
material for another 1,200,000, also
will provide more material for lease-
lend aid to the nations allied against
the Axis powers. Both the Senate
and House already have acted on the
appropriation legislation, but because
there were minor differences in the
two bills both branches must approve
the final, compromised version.
Draft Extension

Both the Senate and House Mili-
tary Committees have called meet-

inclusive, and would make those aged
19 to 44, inclusive, liable to military

Recess Out
Congress, abandoning any idea of
a holiday recess, settled itself to the
business of quickly enacting new and
revising old laws to fit the pattern
of modern all-out war.
High up on the list is legislation
authorizing President Roosevelt to
use some of the wartime powers
granted to Woodrow Wilson two dec-
ades ago. These powers would permit
the President to centralize control
r of all communication /and transpor-
tation systems, put a, statutory ban
on trading with enemy aliens, and to
shift various functions of government
agencies to coordinate the war effort.
Coimittees on both sides of Con-
gress are at work on this legislation.
The Senate and House Naval Com-
nittees have before them bills to
aufhorize construction of 900,000
additional tons of fighting ships. The
legislation mentions no cost limit
and leaves to the Navy Department's'
experts the allocation of the tonnage
among the various categories.

Nazis Swept
From Soviet
sians Claim Repetition
Of Napoleon's Retreat
By German Forces
MOSCOW, Monday, Dec. 15-())-
Rampant Red armies declared today
they had the Germans on the run in
a retreat approaching the scale of
Napoleon's cold and dismal retire-
ment, from Moscow and had over-
taken the backtracking Hitler legions
with a headlong campaign of exter-
A broadcast war bulletin of the of-
ficial information bureau declared
the Red Army had recaptured -he
railway station of Uzlovaya, 40 miles
southeast of Tula, Dubna to the west
of Tula, and Verkhove, northeast of
Livny, in a day-long battling which
raged on all fronts.
Uzlovaya and Dubna are in the sec-
tor about 100 miles south of Moscow,
and Verkhove is in the Orel sector
about 200 miles south of the capital,
where other Soviet broadcasts de-
clared 400 villages and towns have
been taken in the Red Army's sweep.
Capture of Verkhove followed the an-
nouncement yesterday that the Ger-
mans had been driven out of Livny.
In addition, the Russian's Black
Sea fleet was reported vigorously in
action. The communique said a naval
unit had sunk a huge 25,000-ton Nazi
On the southern flank the Sea of
Azov port of Taganrog, 40 miles west
of Rostov, was said to be completely
surrounded by Red army forces.
In the Yelets area some 200 miles
south of the capital, the Moscow radio
reported, cavalry-supported troops
have retaken more than 400 villages
and towns in a savage counter-offen-
sive which has wiped out two battal-
ions of German infantry.
The bureau's bulletin added that
troops defending besieged Leningrad
in the north had killed 400 Nazis in
driving the Germans out of a forti-
fied position identified officially only
as "N."
(The German High Command re-
ported "good success" in artillery at-
tacks on military objectives around
Leningrad and shipping in the Cri-
mean port of Sevastopol. "Otherwise,"
the communique said, "war activity
was restricted to defense against lo-
cal enemy attacks.")
The Red Army assault, which the
official radio said is "giving the Ger-
mans no respite by day or night," ap-
peared to be strongest on the southern
flank where Nazi forces are seeking
to establish a new line along the Mius

and tomorrow with the present draft
age limits of 21 to 35," Hershey said.
Secretary of War Stimson request-
ed Congress last week to enact legis-
lation for the registration of all men
from 18 to 64, inclusive, and mak-
ing those from 19 to 44. inclusive,
subject to military training and serv-
ice. This registration. Hershey said,
would apply to 41.000 000 men, in-
cluding the 17,500,000 who already
have registered.
But the program as of today, Her-
shey. exnlained, calls for the induc-
tion of the remaining 1.000.000 ink, the
21 to 27 age brackets; then eligibles
in the group from 28 to 35, will be
called up, and next the 1,000,000 who
become 21 each year.
"Having done that, you ought to
have a full year's supply of men,"
Hershey said.
In the meantime, there will be a
continuing reexamination of men de-
ferred because of dependency, em-
ployment in vital defense industries
and minor physical disabilities.
"We must go at this thing calmly
and cooly," Hershey said. "We must
not take every man regardless of his
physical condition or no matter how
many dependents he has. But on
the,other hand, we have many, many
cases where the dependency looks a'
little fishy-where people seem to be
living together because of conveni-
One of his aides said that employ-
ers should start thinking about re-
placing men now deferred with older
men and perhaps women.
flershey himself said that Selective
Service might have to do a little "po-
licing" of industry's requests for de-
ferment of men in vital jobs.
Nazi Attack On Jews
Makes French Uneasy
VICHY, Unoccupied Fr&nce, Dec.
14.-(P-The Petain Government in
in official communique tonight stated
that an order of German authorities
for the execution of 100 "Jewish com-
munists and anarchists" in occupied
France provokes "profound uneasi-
ness among Frenchmen."
Furthermore, the communique said,

The Germans announced yesterday
that the 100 would be shot in occu-
pied France in sweeping reprisal exe-
cutions for "recent attacks against

time, a fine of 1,000,000,000 francs
($20,000,000) was imposed on Jews
in the occupied zone.

W. White, who stated that "the in-
crease in crime in the fourteen to
seventeen-year-old age group was 22
per cent in the first year of war over
the last year of peace."
The greatest single factor contri-
buting to England's mounting juven-
ile delinquency is excessive wages paid
to teen-age workers, White asserted.
Youths earn more in two or three
days than they could earn in a week
in peace time.
High wages promote juvenile ab-
senteeism-one of England's biggest
production bugaboos. Then too, young
people have learned to scorn steady
employment and when their over-paid
jobs end, sooner or later become
thieves, White added.
Other reasons are suggested by Pro-
fessor Wood as causes of delinquency.
"Loose money, free time," and slack-
ening of discipline at home since fa-
thers have joined the forces and mo-
thers are engaged in war industries
are blamed.
"In fact," Professor Wood asserted,
"prosperity is as conducive to juven-
ile delinquency as depression."

latest project of Alpha Phi Omega,
national service fraternity.
Under the supervision of Jack Nor-
ton, '43E, and Bill Ager, '43, old
magazines will be picked up from
the various houses starting this eve-
ning, and will be distributed to the
Hospital and Health Service to be
read by patients.
U'rging full cooperation from every-
one, Dick Schoel, '43E, president of
Alpha Phi Omega, requested that
the houses bundle up the magazines
they intend to submit and tie them
so as to facilitate pick-up.
All fraternities and sororities will
be informed of the time of pick-up
by telephone, Schoel said. It is
planned to continue the project in
the future if the success of this ini-
tial venture warrants it.

Student journalists in 1903 may not
have been able to picture the present
Student Publication's Building, but
they did show the foresight which 28
years later resulted in concrete ac-
tion in the raising of the new head-
quarters for The Daily, Michiganen-
sian and Gargoyle.
It was just ten years ago that the
first shovelful of dirt was removed to
make way, at 420 Maynard Street, for
the $180,000 building.
Behind the actual-building process,
however, lies a long history of stu-
dent endeavor, pointed toward the
goal of making Michigan student
publications what they are, both to
the campus and as related to the
country as* whole.
The first attempt to organize a stu-
dent paper on the campus was in
1867, when the Chronicle appeared.
This was followed, in 1882, by the
Michigan Argonaut, another weekly

Within the Chronicle staff itself,
too, there arose a controversy on rep-
resentation. It had been customary
to appoint the managing editor and
business manager from the fraternity
faction one semester and from tpe
non-fraternity group the other, but
when, in 1889-90, the question came
up as to which group would gain the
leading positions for the second sem-
ester, the independents left the staff
and boycotted -the paper. In the
spring of 1890 the University of Mich-
igan Independent Association was
formed, with a weekly paper one of
its projects.
In the meantime the Chronicle and
the Argonaut combined to put out
a tni-weekly paper. Forced by com-
petition, the U. of M. Independent
altered, its policy to present a daily
newspaper. Soon the name was
changed to the non-partisan U. of M.
