March 31, 1917. Following the stu-
dent vote in favor of military train-
ing it was provided that all students
who signed up for drill would be
trained by regular army officers, us-
ing regular uniforms and equipment,
supplied without cost to the trainees.
The University expected that from
500 to 1000 would take the training
course following spring vacation. All
training was placed on a voluntary
basis because there were not ade-
quate housing facilities to barrack all
It was also decided that if a stu-
dent enlisted in military or naval'
services during a semester, he was to
be given full semester credit, provided
his record was good.
The Union offered the University
the use of its entire building and
property as barracks for those in

Congressmen Feel Relief
At Statement By Knox,
But Blame 'Negligence'
WASHINGTON, Dec: 15- W) -
Many members of Congress said today
the damage at Pearl Harbor was less
than they had feared and they ex-
pressed satisfaction over Secretary
Knox's statement that much of the
fleet was now at sea seeking contact
with the enemy.
But chairman Connally (Dem.-
Tex.) of the Senate Foreign Relations
"The statement that neither the
Navy nor the Army was on the alert
at Hawaii when it was attacked by
the Japanese is amazing. It is as-
tounding. It is almost unbelievable.
"The Navy of John Paul Jones and
that of Dewey must wear crepe. The
old Army must carry an arm band.
While the report as to destruction of
naval craft is not as bad as first re-
ports, the loss of life is staggering.
"The naval commander and army
general should be investigated vigor-
ously. Theirs is the responsibility and
it ought to be determined whether1
either or both are inefficient or crim-
inally negligent. They must be one or
"I have always been a big-Navy
man. I have always supported the
strongest possible Navy. I have al-
ways wanted the 4most powerful Navy
in the world. I am pained and grieved
at its seeming failure of its high
Senator Chandler (Dem.-Ky.), a
member of the Military Affairs Com-
mittee, said he was relieved that the
losses in ships were not greater than
enumerated by Knox.
"If that is all we have lost,".Chand-
ler told reporters, "we ought to be able
to take the offensive right away, ac-
cording to long time plans of action."

that men from 19 to 44, inclusive, be
subject to induction, but Chairman
May (Dem.-Ky.) said the Commit-
tee believed an Army of more than 1
6.000.000 could be obtained from men
in the 21 to 45 age brackets.
The House Rules Committee opened1
the way for floor debate, probably;
tomorrow, on an Omnibus Bill which
would reenact the World War "trad-
ing with the enemy" act, give the
Chief Executive 'authority to redis-t
tribute, the work of Government
agencies and provide short cuts inj
letting war contracts.
Attorney General Biddle was re-.
ported to have told a Senate com-
mittee behind closed doors that a
comparable bill would establish a
censorship over outgoing, but not in-
coming foreign communications. He
said no domestic censorship was con-
templated under that legislation.
The House Naval Committee sent
to the floor a bill authorizing a 150,-
000-ton expansion in the fleet. The
Navy last week asked for a 900,000
ton increase but Chairman Vinson
(Dem.-Ga.) of the Committee said
officials had decided that facilities
were available only for construction
of the, smaller tonnage..

The ratio of dead was heavy, Knox
explained, bpcause some ships rolled
"I think the most effective fifth
column work of the entire war was
done in Hawaii, with the possible
exception of Norway," Knox said.
Responding to reporters' ques-
tions, Knox said:
He believed between 150 and 300
planes took part in the attack-too
many to come from a single aircraft
The attacks apparently were made
only by single-engined planes and
apparently none was land-based.
As far as known, none was flown
by Germans, and no new weapons
of any kind made their appearance.
Knox declined to say whether the
Navy had known of the existence of
the two-man submarines.
,ry docks escaped damage, he
said, as did all oil storage and other
important base facilities.
The Secretary said the Arizona
went down from a "lucky hit."
(The Arizona was built in the New
York Navy Yard and launched June
19, 1915, a 32,600-ton ship of the
Pennsylvania class. Its normal com-
plement was 1,358 officers and men.
It carried, according to Jane's fight-
ing ships, 12 14-inch guns, 12 5-inch
guns and eight 5-inch anti-aircraft
weapons, as well as three aircraft. It
America At War' To Be Thene
Of Annual Senate Winter Parley
By DAN BEHRMAN
University students have been stor-
ing up lots of steam ever since Tokyo
lit the fire nine days ago.
They'll be able to blow off some of
it and contribute to a valuable cam-
pus forum January 16-17. when the!
Student Senate conducts its annual
Winter Parley with "America At War"
as the discussion theme.
At a meeting yesterday called by
Chairman Jack Edmonson, the par-
ley committee set up four main topics
for student-faculty panels to be chos-
en later. Greater student participa-
tion in the discussions was stressed by
the entire committee.
The first topic, as outlined by qam
Russell, '42, program chairman, will
be concerned with the economic prob-
lems of wartime production. The sub-
ject will be taken up from three dif-
ferent viewpoints; labor, business and
the consumer. Deferred wages, the
right to strike, the precarious posi-
tion of small business, and the ever-
darkening storm-front of inflation
will probably be major items of de-
The second and most personally
important panel will deal with edu-
cation in wartime. Such immediate
questions as defense training, the con-
tinuance of universities, and the prob-
lem of degreemen shouldering a pack
and rifle will be encouraged by the
The war on morals, admittedly as
dangerous as any surprise Pearl Har-
bor attack, will be the subject of the
with two mere~
third forum group. Split into two
headings, this topic will deal with
religious-ethical issues and then dis-
cuss war-time infringement on civil
rights, treatment of aliens and citi-
zens of "enemy" descent, and criti-
cism of administrative policies.
While the general topic of our
armed forces has been set for the
fourth panel, specific discussion will
hinge upon the outcome of military
events at the parley date in January,
Perspec ives Issue
For various reasons, printing of the
coming issue of Perspectives. Univer-
sity literary magazine, has been post-
poned and will not be finished until
soon after the Christmas holidays.
Since some of the editors of the
literary supplement are also members
of The Daily editorial staff, work on
Perspectives has been continually in-
terrupted during the past two weeks
to push the completion of the Christ-
mas and defense supplements to the
paper, and to take care of innova-
tions necessary in giving the campus
complete coverage of the war.
