German Troops Face Epidemic
In Losing Straggle Against Lice

(By The Associated Press)
Disease, disunity and military dis-
aster stalked the once conquering le-
gions of Adolf Hitler today and, bar-
ring surprises, seemed to be hasten-
ing the day of Hitlerism's ultimate
defeat.
Hundreds of additional doctors and
nurses were reported by the Berlin
correspondent of a Swiss newspaper
to have been rushed recently to the
eastern front to combat a wave of
vermin-spread typhus, both among
the wavering troops in Russia and
behind the lines in conquered coun-
tries.
German troops were reported en-
gaged in a "battle against lice."
Reliable sources in London de-
clared that dissension in' the Nazi
High Command-primarily a split
over the reverses in Russia-now had
spread to the Navy with a sharp dis-
agreement between Grand Admiral
Erich Raeder and his submarine
chief, Vice Admiral Karl Doenitz,
over the way the battle of the At-
lantic is going.
The London Star also quoted al

Moscow broadcast that Field Mar-
shal General Wilhelm Keitel, chief
of the Nazi High Command, suddenly
had been taken ill. The Keitel report
has not been verified.+
The British radio quoted a report
from Switzerland that 62 German
soldiers had been executed at Bes-
ancon, Occupied France, because they
mutinied against orders to return to
the Russian front after a furlough.I
Vice Admiral Doenitz, said an in-
formant, had charged his superior
Raeder, with responsibility for "the
miscarriage of submarine warfare."
The Grand Admiral was repre-
sented as having been specifically
accused by his subaltern of:
Permitting the circulation of false
information indicating a rate of sink-
ings of British and allied ships much
higher than the true one;
Telling the Nazis that new sub-
marines were being built much faster
than they were in fact;
Allowing the Gestapo and the Nazi
SS Corps 'unjustly to arrest and
otherwise impugn submarine men
whose nervous condition at the end
of a tour of duty sometimes led them
into utterances which the Nazis dis-
torted into sedition.
Doenitz, said this source, had
served upon Raeder a flat demand
that the Gestapo and SS be run out
of submarine bases and ports and
off the necks of naval men.
The report that Field Marshal
General Keitel, highest war figure
in all Germany, had suddenly be-
come ill recalled that illness was the
explanation so belatedly advanced
for Hitler's recent ouster of Field
Marshal General Walther von Brau-
chitsch, the supreme commander of
the German armies.

same aeparmenu openea ns course
in descriptive geometry yesterday.
Added today to a list of ten De-
troit courses already opened will be
classes in air sanitation, internal
combustion engine design, frame
analysis, vibration analysis, dynam-
ics, mechanical vibrations, arc weld-
ing, die casting, ordnance inspection
and graphical methods.
In Jackson a total of six courses
will get under way, offering instruc-
tion in arc welding, thermodynamics,
machinability, pyrometry, circuit
analysis and electrical engineering.
Officially designated as one of the
ESMDT courses, a credited course in
ultra-high-frequency techniques will
be made available to selected senior
and graduate electrical engineers the
second semester, under Prof. L. N.
Holland of the electrical engineering
department.
Also connected with the ESMDT
program will be a new full-time
course in Ordnance Materials In-
spection to be opened on campus
Mondap, Jan. 19. Unlike the other
eight-week 'courses, this course will
meet five hours a day, five days a
week for 12 weeks.
The first contingent of 100 trainees
for this course will arrive in Ann Ar-
bor late this week, and will be fol-
lowed by two other groups of 100 at
monthly intervals until the quota of
300 is filled. Instruction will be given
by engineering faculty men assisted
by student instruotors.
Implemented by the University Ex-
tension Service, the courses are spon-
[sored by the U. S. Office of Educa-
tion, to which Dean Ivan C. Craw-
ford of the College of Engineering
is the University's representative.
Coordination of the program is be-
ing handled by Prof. R. H. Sherlock
of the civil engineering department.

N.V
Speech Society
To Meet Today
Prof. Adams To Discuss
Ship Building Terms
Members of Sigma Rho Tau, en-
gineering, stump speakers' society,
will seek a better understanding of
the terms now prevalent in the an-
nouncement of ship sinkings when
they hold a regular meeting at 7:30
p.m. today in the Union.
Basing his talk on that desire, Prof.
H. C. Adams of the marine engineer-
Ing department will speak to the
group on the subject, "Elementary
Definitions and Measurements in
Ship Building."
Following Professor Adams' talk
the organization will break up into
its regular debate circles to continue
discussion on the subject, "Resolved:
That the United States should build
more dirigibles for commercial and
military use."
At a national committee meeting
of the society held last week and at-
tended by delegates from other chap-,
ters in this vicinity, it was decided
that the organization should prepare
to speak before civic groups on sub-
jects vital to home defense.
Plans for these speaking engage-
ments will be undertaken as early as
possible.
Bartlett Praises
Fiilpino Loyalty
In'Pacific Fight
Denying the existence of any wide-
spread anti-American feeling in the
Philippines, Prof. Harley Bartlett of
the Department of Botany in a Sun-
day speech at the Rackham Build-
ing, emphasized the loyalty of the
Filipino soldiers now fighting with
American forces.
Professor Bartlett, who has him-
self lived in the Islands, declared
that what feeling of resentment is
to be found may be attributed to the
class and color consciousness dis-
played by some of the Americans
resident in the Philippines.
Stressing that the Japanese alone
were responsible for the fifth column
activities around Manila, he added
that the taking of the Philippines
has been a long-planned part of
Japanese foreign 'policy.
Japanese plans date from the
Spanish-American War, stated Pro-
fessor Bartlett, and he added that
official documents dated 1900 con-
tained the words, "Asia is going to
rise against the Anglo-American
race."

but a small admission fee will be
charged.

extension, school lunches, and in
many other fields.
