The second World War seems at
long last to have hit home tc the
University of Michigan campus. After
Dec. 7, we all said significantly "Re-
member Pearl Harbor," huddled a bit
closer to the news broadcasts and
wondered who might be on the casu-
About this time some of the boys
began to leave school and more of
them to talk of leaving, orofrhaving
to leave to go to war. There was a
defense rally and a student commit-
tee set up. Not until this week was
there an Ann Arbor-and a Univer-
sity-fatality "for sure."
The whole campus national de-
fense effort seems to be working in,
the same pokey fashion. The ideas,
surveys, possible plans, adaptations

been at la-.
This week house directors in all
the residences on campus undertook
to register the women within their'
houses for defense courses to be
offered next semester. The work was
done ins cooperation with the Office
of the Dean of Women and it was
made quite clear that both defense
courses or community work were to
be strictly voluntary.
But though the actual sign-up was
pretty fair, the real response was
disappointing. Lack of immediate
enthusiasm is indicative of lack of
understanding of the seriousness of
the situation or of the intent of the
courses. We're hopingthis general
apathy doesn't mean all it might; it
hardly seems as if there's' any stu-
dent who wouldn't give freely of her
time if she thought it might "really

to the student who lacks patience and
the desire to cooperate with all eft
forts. Here's hoping none of us are
going to be caught short of ability
