* Accidents
* Rationing
New Year's Eve came and went
but it didn't make any difference to
Ann Arbor.
There wasn't a single traffic acci-
dent in the city on the annual day
of celebration.
The Associated Press reported a
total of 62 persons killed throughout
the country in New Year's Eve cele-
brations. All over Michigan there
were accidents and one person was
reported killed.
Just outside of Ann Arbor an auto-
mobile accident sent three persons to
hospitals. But the city itself turned
an indifferent shoulder to it all.
Routine- life went on as usual. One
person was arrested for drunkenness
and one minor theft was reported.
Ann Arbor burglars don't make
New Year's resolutions.
Immediately after the turning of
the year, police received reports of
four thefts in the city. They investi-
gated and the following discoveries
were made.:
A skeleton key was used to force
entrance into the Alumni Memorial
Building and $16 was removed from
a jimmied filing cabinet.
Three cars were also stolen.
One was recovered by police six
hours after the theft. The other two
were taken from in front of the
owner's homes. One of these was
picked up just outside of the city
Police are still looking for the third

Lansing and local defense council

As a result, tire rationing programs
went into effect on a country-wide
scale yesterday but Ann Arbor and
Washtenaw County were standing
pat, awaiting specific instructions
from Lansing before going ahead.

Harrison H. Caswell refuses to get
excited, however. He asked motorists
to do the same and cautioned them
to keep their feet from pressing on
accelerators too heavily.

Netherlands East Indies newspapers
speculated today over the possibility
of imminent United States naval and
air reinforcements for the Far East
as a direct result of the appointment
of two American officers to the Allies'
supreme command in the Southwest
The news agency Aneta reported
there had been no official comment
on the appointment of British Gen-
eral Sir Archibald P. Wavell to head
the unified command. But the agen-
cy said press and public generally
were well satisfied with his selection,
as well as with the choice of Major
General George H. Brett, U.S. Army
Air Corps Chief, and Admiral Thom-
as C. Hart, Commander of America's
Asiatic Fleet, as members of his staff.

the subject of a talk by Lieut. K. S.

Room 348 West Engineering Build-
Lieutenant Shook's talk will be one

naval officer's profession.

students who hold or intend to hold
commissions in the Naval Reserve,
but all interested students and fac-
ulty members are invited.

Members of the Faculty and Staff:
Your attention is called to the fol-
lowing Resolution adopted by the
Regents on May 23, 1941:
Resolved, That it be the policy of
the University of Michigan with re-
gard to: (1) A member of the staff
on indeterminate tenure who enters
the Federal Service in the present
emergency that such member shall
apply for a leave of absence in ac-
cordance with the provisions of the
Bylaws of the Board of Regents, (2)
A member of the faculty or other em-
ployee not on indeterminate tenure
who is called into the service of the
Federal Government during the pres-
ent emergency shall be deemed to be
on leave of absence without salary
for a period not longer than the
end of the present term of appoint-
ment. Uoon release from Government
service the University will if possible
reemploy such person at the begin-
ning of a semester or academic year
as may be practicable and in a posi-
tion as nearly comparable as pos-
sible with the former position. What-I
ever tentative understanding may
be reached by a department Chair-
man with a member of the staff
should be put in writing with copies
filed with the appropriate Universi-
ty officers.
Chairmen of departments are ad-
vised to weigh carefully the neces-
sity of filling positions made vacant
by the national emergency and to
attempt to make provisions for the
return of members of the staff.
Applications in Support of Re-
search Projects: To give the Re-
search Committees and the Execu-
tive Board adequate time for study
of all proposals, it is requested that
faculty members having projects
needing support during 1942-1943
file their proposals in the Office of
the Graduate School by Friday, Jan-
uary 9, 1942. Those wishing to re-
new previous requests whether now
receiving support or not should so
indicate. Application forms will be
mailed or can be obtained at Secre-
tary's Office, Room 1508 Rackham
Building, Telephone 331.

From the very start of Saturday's

at hand. It was a scrappy game
all the way, and at the end of the
first sixty minutes of play the two
teams were deadlocked. The game
was thrown into overtime, but neith-
