Student Group
Will Sponsor
Relief Bazaar
Society Will Buy Medical
Supplies To Be sent
To SovietArmy
Sponsored by the Ann Arbor stu-
dent division of the Russian War Re-
lief Society, a Russian bazaar will be
held Saturday from 2:30 to 6:38
p.m. and from 7:30 to 11:30 in the
Grand Rapids Room of the Michigan
In, order to make the bazaar more
effective, the 7-11 Club will hold a
dance the same evening in the neigh-
boring Kalamazoo Room. The dance
will carry out the theme of the ba-
zaar by having decorations and set-
tings of a Russian nature.
All the funds raised by this bazaar
will be given to the national Society
for the purchase of medical supplies
which can be set to the Soviet Army.
This committee is just one of many
throughout the country. All of these
organizations have started cam-
paigns, and are trying to raise as
much money as possible, using all
facilities which they can comman-
The Ann Arbor committee has set
a student goal of $1,000, which they
wish to obtain by June. A little of
this money will buy a lot. $1 will
purchase an anesthesia mask, $5 will
obtain two wound clips, for $50 an
electric instrument sterilizer can be
made available, and $100 will buy a
hospital field tent. The Russian sur-
geons are badly in need of supplies,

The most important activity in the
women's dorms these days is defense,
work, and the girls are doing plenty
of it-lending their capabilities to9
many varied kinds. Stockwell, how-i
ever, beat the other dorms to the
draw in cornering all the available
Red Cross yarn supply in the city.
For this reason, the others will have
to wait for additional wool but it is
promised for the end of this or early
next week.
In addition to this, several pf the
dorms have set aside specially con-
verted recreation rooms as sewing
centers. Mosher girls have been sew-
ing dresses for children and*Stock-
well is specializing in blue and pink
booties for infants-among other
Jordan sells defense stamps and
books and has committees for col-
lecting waste paper and making surg-
ical dressings also.
The several houses have had al-
most 100 per cent 'registration for de-
fense work, signing up for anything
from \entertaining or writing radio
scripts to rolling bandages and of-
fering blood for transfusions.
Many of the dorms also have Re-
ports Chairmen who give detailed
weekly accounts of defense activities
to the head defense committee in the
League. After the start of next sem-
ester it is expected that work which
already has been very well organized
in such a short space of time, will
be running very smoothly and quick-
ly in aiding the war effort.

City Officials
Begin Studies
Of Blackouts
City officials began the study of
the intricate problems involved in
blacking out Ann Arbor at a county
defense council meeting called by
Mayor Leigh J. Young, city defense
council chairman, in the armory yes-
Patrolman Robert Mayfield of the
city police department, Albert Ja-
cobs of the country defense council
and Deputy Sheriff Thomas Fitz-
gerald-all attended an FBI school
in Detroit recently-led the discus-
Chairman of the county defense
council Harrison H. Caswell declared
that the meeting was called so that
the work could be planned thorough-
ly and without haste.
It was recommended that the de-
fense council take the necessary
steps to include the entire county in
the blackout plans, since a blackout
of Ann Arbor alone would not be
effective if the surrounding areas
were not in darkness.
The discussion leaders pointed out
that a mere turning out of lights
was not enough for a satisfactory
blackout. Control of traffic and
automobile lights must also be real-
ized, the leaders stated, and ar-
rangements must be made to meet
the problem of business district
Signals able to be heard through-
out the entire cty must be estab-
lished and air-raid wardens ap-
pointed to supervise the program, it

Anti-Axis Front
In New World
Pan-American Convention
Is Warned Of 'Illusory
Neutrality' By Welles
RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 15.-G -
The United States veged the non-
belligerents of the Western Hemi-
sphere today to abandon neutrality
and to form a united front against}
aggression by driving out Axis agents,
now serving under the cloaks of dip-t
lomats, from the New World.
This plea was made by Undersec-
retary of State Sumner Welles at the
opening session of the third consul-
tative conference of foreign ministers1
of the Pan-American Republics.
Welles warned that in this day to
cling to "the tattered fiction of an
illusory neutrality" was suicidal.
He spoke to delegates of 20 othert
American republics, ten of whom al-
ready are at war. Of the others,
Argentina alone stood out as the only
nation reported unwilling to join a,
united front of outright diplomatic9
hostility to the Axis.
President Getulio Vargas of Brazil
pledged that his country, which juts
out into the south Atlantic toward
Africa and Europe, would never be
used as a "point of vantage for ag-
gression against sister nations."
Foreign minister JIan Bautistal
Rossetti of Chile elaborated upon the
unity theme by calling on the dele-
gates to "use all our faith and en-
thusiasm" to make the hemisphere
"one and indivisible in the defense
of her inalienable right to decide her
destiny for herself."
Argentina's position held the close
attention of all, with the success or
failure of the entire conference per-,
haps hinging on the stand to be taken
by this strong nation.
Welles and the Argentine foreign
minister, Dr. Enrique Ruiz Guinazu,
had a 25-minute conference this
morning after which Welles only said:
"I have ,had a cordial and pleasant
conversation with my old friend, the
foreign minister of Argentina."
Plans To Be Considered
For Local Youth Hostel
A meeting to consider plans for
the organization of a youth hostel
in Ann Arbor will be held at the
home of Werner F. Striedieck, of
the German department, 10 Har-
vard Pl., at 8 p.m. today.
The idea of a local youth hostel
was prompted by the automobile tire
shortage with consequent curtail-
ment of motor vacations. Expansion
of the youth hostel movement is in-
tended to provide new vacation op-
