Work Holiday'
Called To Fix
Gift Clothing
Aid Requested For Repair
Of Clothes Contributions
o Be Done At Lane Hall
Students and campus organiza-.
tions were very cooperative in turn-
ing in articles for the recent cloth-
ing drive, but if the campaign is to
be successful, students should turn
out at 1:15 today at Lane Hall to
take past in the "Work Holiday."
At this time, all the clothing which
has been turned in will be mended
and packed. All aid received will be
greatly appreciated, because the
clothing will be of no use unless it
can be put in a condition to be worn.
The cleaning concerns of Ann Ar-,
bor h4ve promised the committee in
charge of the drive that after 'the
clothing has been repaired, they will
sake care of the cleaning.
All the clothing will be distributed1
among three good-will agencies..
They are the Red Cko s, Salvation]
Army, apd the Friends Service Com-
This clothing drive was started"
just before Christmas bywasgroup oft
students who realized 'that there
were many articles of clothing for
which he students had no use. Se-
curing aid from students at Lane
Hall, they started immediately to
contact the social committee of Con-
gress, dormitories, league houses,
and all other campus organizations.
The University furnished trucks sof
that all collections could be made. f
A great deal of clothing was col-
lected, and now all that remains to1
be done is to put it in shape, so that
distribution can be made as soon as,


spirit Of '89 Will Rise Again:
Refugee Says American Entry
In War Buoys French Morale

Associated Press

Entrance of the United States into
the war has had a greater bolstering
effect on French morale than any-
thing that has occurred since the
French collapse in June, 1940, Mau-
rice Diamant, '45E, a life-long resi-
dent of Paris, claimed in an inter-
view yesterday.
Diamant, who fled his Nazi-con-
quered native country last February,
predicted an uprising of the French
people as soon as the Allies invade
the continent. He said that the
American war entry had. even a
greater influence than the Russian
successes because of the great popu-
larity of the United States among all
Frenchmen. Our ambassador, Ad-
miral Leahy, himself has great in-
fluence with Petain.
Favor Free French
The majority of the French peo- _l
ple, Diamant reported favor the Free
French movement of General Charles
DeGaulle. There is a larger percen-
tage of DeGaulle supporters in the
occupied zone than in Unoccupied
France. This, he explained, is be-
cause the people in the occupied zone
are directly under the German yoke
and support any liberation program
while in the unoccupied areas the
personal prestige of Petain, the hero
of Verdun., counter-balances the force I
of the Free French movement. I
The food situation in France is
going from bad to worse. The fail-
ure of the Germans to obtain great
food resqrves in Russia has increased
their demands on the French sup-
plies. In Normandy, an area that
formerly produced one-fourth of all
the eggs and butter produced in
France, now has hardly an available
supply large enough to meet the
needs of the area itself.
Strong Anti-Nazi Movement,
The underground movement
against the Nazis is very strong in
France, Diamant emphasized. In
Paris there are several underground
French papers edited py Frenchmen
opposing collaboration. These papers
are secretly distributed. The Nazi-
controlled press has lost all its in-
fluence, Diamant declared. Every-
body in France listens to the BBC
regardless of the Nazi prohibitions.
With the backfiring of the German
drive in Russia, the French people
have naturally begun to look upon
Russia as a possible liberator of them

The students who started this
campaign and who have been work-
T ing ever since its inaliguration are
Sigmund Cohn, '42, Joan Deiches,
'44, Dorothy Wienman, '42A, and
Miss Patty Zander of Lane Hall.
Gym Programs
To Be. Chaged
Emphasis. Will Be Shifted
To Wartime Objectives
Physical education programs for
high schools ahd colleges -will un-
dergo drastic changes for the dura-
tion according to Prof. Elmer D. Mit-
che'll of the education school, direc-
tor of intra-mural sports.
Professor Mitchell, now serving as
expert consultant on the joint Army
and Navy Committee on Welfare and
Recreation, is autho? of the lead ar-
ticle, "Physical Fitness in a Nation
at Wars" of the December issue of
the School of Education Bulletin re-
leased yesterday.
Emphasis in physical education
programs will be shifted from the
peacetime objectives of developing
the "total personality" and individual
integration to training designed to
develop physical endurance, teach
exercises applicable to combat con-
ditions such a wall scaling and ditch
jumping, instruct in informative sub-
jects such as hygiene and first aid,
build morale with recreational sports,
and develop leaders for the expanded
athletic program.
Prof. Mabel E. Rugen of the edu-
catign and public health schools is
author of the article "The Responsi-
bility and Contributions of Secondary
School Teachers for Health Educa-
tion" which is also featured in this
month's issue of the Bulletin.
The Bulletin, edited by Prof. War-
rn R. Good of the education school,
contains the full program of the
Winter Conference on Educational
Problems and the annual Guidance
' Conference as well as notes on the
professional activities of the faculty
of the education school.

The collection was gathered by
Professor Plumer, who is on the fac-
ulty of the Far Eastern art depart-
ment. 'It contains a great variety of
rare and ancient objects including
Graeco-Buddhist sculpture from Af-
ghanistan, Tibetan paintings, Rajput
bronzes, Indian textiles and sculp-
ture, and Chinese textiles, rugs and
clay models.
4 The purpose of the exhibit is to

in spite of the progressive rise in
prices of all commodities which has

} from Hitler's rule. This feeling has
been strengthened by Communist
propaganda, the Moscow Radio and
the BBC.
The French Communist Party be-
gan its sabotage program immedi-
ately after the Nazi invasion of the
Soviets started. The party, outlawed
( under the Dalladier regime, still had
a strong organization that was func-
tioning underground.
Questioned , on the French fleet,
Diamant pointed out that the col-
laborationists, Darlan and Laval, who
have staked everything on a German
victory will do all they can to aid
Hitler and thus might cede the fleet.
However, if they do this they lose
their only check on the Nazi leader
and therefore will probably delay
a decisive decision on the matter as
long as possible.
To High School
Conservation Of Materias
Stressed At Assembly;
First Aid To Be Taught
A program for student defense
work and a round-table discussion
of student attitudes. during war cri-
ses, was presented to a general as-
sembly in the University High School
yesterday morning.
A twelve-point program, designed
to answer .the question, "What Can
I Do to Help?", ,was outlined by
seniors of the modern social prob-
lems classes.
Conservation of materials by ini-
tial care and by repair, in order to
save raw material and labor costs,
was stressed. Plans were made for
all waste paper to bf baled and sold,
the money to go to the Red Cross.
At the smne time, machinery was
set up to furnish books for, army
camps and hospitals, a project which
is being done in cooperation with
the National Association of Libraries.
First aid classes will be started
with the two-fold purpose of learn-
ing to care for the ill and wounded,
and to relieve doctors. In connection
with this, personal health was
stressed, not only for fitness to help,
but also to relieve the pressure of
civilian care that would encumber
doctors and nurses.
Red Cross classes in knitting, sew-
ing and bandaging will be offered,
and students are encouraged to learn
to make articles for camp and hos-
pital use, and to gain skill in re-
pairing them.
Tolerance toward other opinions,
the need for national unity, and the
necessity of cheerfulness and good
spotsmanship in the face o dis-
couraging military losses, and ,par-
ticularlyIn the giving up of luxuries,
were brought before the students as
problems they would have to face.
The boys and girls were warned not
to spread false rumors, but to report
well-founded suspicions to the proper
authorities. Finally, emphasis was
put on the necessity of continuing
educational studies seriously and en-
At the close of the assembly, the
president of the senior class\Emons
Smith, announced the memorial gift
of the class of 1942-a $300 United
States Bond to be purchased with
proceeds from class plays.
