In Conflict With Japan
Students Will Lead
Discussion Groups
Stressing the importance of moral,
physical and spiritual fitness, Prof.
Harld A. Dorr of the political sci-
ence department yesterday told the
opening session of the Student Sen-
ate Winter Parley that "you as young
Americans may well win the war
against Japan and lose the peace."
"This generation must do better
than the last one in building a new
social and economic order," keynoter
Dorr told the Parley which closes to-
day with four student-faculty panels
on the general theme of "America At
War."
In citing the unfavorable opinions
expressed by many older people about
this generation before the war, Pro-
fessor Darr 'pointed out the "this-
world-is-a-hell-of-a-mess"tattitude
prevalent amongst youth in the late
20's.-
Address Opens Session
Professor Dorr's address opened
the annual all-campus forum's two-
day session of discussion panels open
to every man and woman student.
The meeting was presided over by
Chairman Bill Muehl, '44L.
In commenting on Professor Dorr's
talk, Hale ,Champion, '44, told the
audience that "the youth who fight
this war will be given a part in mak-
ing its peace or 'else the peace will
be made by the other side." Second
student commentator, Rosebud Scott,
'42, stressed the problems of demo-
cracy at home. William Clark, '42,
questioned the value of the Old Test-
ament law of "an eye for an eye"
in dealing with modern international
problems.
Will Treat War
The four panels' sessions, set for
2:30 and 7:15 p.m. today, will treat
the war from its economic, moral and
military aspects, and its effect on
education. Panel I, "Arms For Amer-
ica," will analyze the war's impact
on labor, consumers and business.
Meeting in Room 304 in the Union,
it will be chaired by Norm Call, '42.
"War and Education" will be dis-
cussed by the second panel under
Roger Kelley, '42. This group, which
includes Prof. Harlow Heneman of
the University War Board, will meet
in the Union's Room 323.
Panel III will take up the growing
problem of religious, civil and politi-
cal liberties inra wartime America.
"Crisis In Morals" will convene in
Room 305 of the Union under Don
O'Connor, '42.
Dealing with the military aspects
of this conflict, Panel IV on "Our
Armed Forces" will be chaired by Don
Stevenson, '42. It will meet in Room
302 in the Union.
Prof. Vlastos
To End Series
On Skepticism
"The Failure of Skepticism" wil be
the subject of a lecture by Dr. Greg-
ory Vlastos, professor of philosophy

at Queen's University, Kingston, On-
tario, at 8:15 p.m. tomorrow in the
Rackham Lecture Hall.
This talk is the last of a series
on skepticism sponsored by the New-
man Club, Hillel Foundation and In-
ter-Guild. A reception with refresh-
ments will be held after the lecture at
Lane Hall.
Dr. Vlastos will discuss the prob-
lem of skepticism in a time of crisis
from the Protestant point of view.
The other speakers in the series at-
tacked the question from the stand-
points of the other major faiths.
Dr. Vlastos was the chief speaker
at the National Assembly of Student
Christian Associations at Miami Uni-
versity this Christmas vacation. He
is also one of the editors of "Toward
Christian Revolution" and has writ-
ten "The Religious Way" and "Chris-

British Shakeup Hinted
LONDON, Jan. 16.-(P)-A drastic

Colonial Offices because of setbacks
in the Orient appeared in the making
tonight. Qualified London quarters

there has been rising clamor awaited
only the return of Prime Minister
Churchill from Washington.

terday.
Led by Long John Erlewine and
Handsome Hale Champion the out-
numbered edit staff made a heroic
Horatius-at-the-bridge stand, until
one of Ace Flagler's stooges slipped
in a basket while everybody was
arguing with the referee, Wilson's
roommate.
Flash Flagler led an otherwise
hopeless band of pseudo-sports ex-
perts with 15 strictly-from-hunger
points, while H. Luisetti Champion
cashed in 10 for the gallant little
band from page one. Offensive and
defensive star of the game, however,
was Lone Star Johnny *Erlewine who
covered both backboards like a ba-
bushka.

By DAN BEHRMAN
Woman suffrage was still a soap-
box issue in 1917, but American wo-
men enter this war with a man's
share of its responsibilities.
In order to prepare women for
their emergency duties, a special se-
ries of war training courses has been
announced by the niversity War
Board. These courses are supple-
mented by defense work offered in
regular University departments.
The greatest demand for trained
women workers is found in the field
of nursing. The Army and Navy
alone have indicated that they will
need 10,000 additional registered
nurses. .A growing need has also
arisen for dietitians, part-time nurs-
ery workers and secretarial personnel.
According to a War Board an-
nouncement, opportunities exist for
women proficient in mathematics
and one of the foreign languages re-
viewed in yesterday's Daily.

U.S. Asiatic Units Destroy
Enemy Craft In Pacific;
Luzon Attack Intensified
Jap Dive-Bombers
Harass MacArthur
WASHINGTON, Jan. 16. - (P)-
Five more Japanese ships-three
transports and two cargo vessels-
lay at the bottom of the Far Pacific
tonight as the result of hammer
blows delivered by the United States
Navy.
They were sunk, a communique an-
nounced, by units of the U. S. Asiatic
Fleet, raising to at least 24 the num-
ber of enemy craft destroyed by the
Navy and Marines in less than six
weeks of fighting.
In addition to the action by the
two sea services, War Department
communiques from Washington and
For latest developments on the
Latin-American front, see story on

from the Army in the Far East have
claimed definitely the sinking of
eight Japanese craft, including a bat-
tleship.
The Japanese invaders on Luzon,
meanwhile intensified their attack
upon General Douglas -MacArthur's
depleted defending army, strung
across the approaches to Batan Pen-
insula.
Enemy dive-bombers attacked in-
cessantly, the War Department an-
nounced. Shock troops with special
training stormed the defense line.
Japanese artillery kept up a con-
tinuous cannonading. The communi-
que mentioned neither withdrawal
by the American-Filipino forces nor
the Japanese troops, and it was ap-
parently too early to perceive the
trend of the battle.
But General MacArthur's head-
quarters found time to report to the
Department that in occupied areas
the Japanese were "systematically
looting and devastating the entire
countryside." It was another indi-
cation that MacArthur is receiving
numerous reports of activities behind
the enemy lines.

OPM Head Is Given Free
Hand In Directing War
Department's Program
Senate To Receive
FDR Nomination
WASHINGTON, Jan. 16.--MP) -
President Roosevelt handed sweeping,
over-all supervision of the war pro-
duction program to Donald Nelson
today, then plucked William S.
Knudsen from the OPM, gave him the
three stars of a lieutenant-general,
and placed him in charge of expe-
diting production for the Army.
An executive order formally es-
tablishing the War Production Boar
contained no "ifs," "buts" or reser-
vations of any kind in placing su-
preme production under Nelson and,
in a clinching phrase, it declared
"his decisions shall be final."
OPM Is Subordinated
The effect of this was to make the
OPM, of which Knudsen has been
director, completely subordinate and
open to possible general reorganiza-
tion at Nelson's direction.
What Knudsen's attitude would be
was a matter of wide speculation
when a second announcement came
from the White House.
It said the former General Motors
chief was being given entire charge
of directing and expediting the gi-
gantic production involved in the
War Department's munitions pro-
gram.
Mr. Roosevelt referred to Knudsen
as "one of the great production men
of the world," said the country al-
ready was "immeasurably indebted"
to him, and announced that on Mon-
day he would send to the Senate
his nomination to be a lieutenant-
general.
Plans Formulated
It was indicated that much of
Knudsen's work would be in the field
where his production genius could
best make itself felt. The, White
House said he and his staff would
"visit the great arsenals and muni-
tions factories with the object of
helping them constantly to improve
and speed up their lines of produc-
tion."
Knudsen will be a member of the
War Production Board and, in his
War Department post, will be under
the general supervision of Nelson.
Kaufman-Hart
farce To End
Four-Day Run
Ann Arbor audiences will be given
their last opportunity to see "George
Washington Slept Here" at 830 p.m.
today in -the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre.
The play, written in the typical
Kaufzihan-Hart style and dialogue,
concerns the troubles whic confront
Newton Fuller after he buys 'an old
country house in order to "go native"
in a big way.
Tree bores, Japanese beetles, no
water, no dirt (except in the house,
and a kitchen with one wall out are
only a few of the problems which he
attempts to solve with a' diastrous
expenditure of money.
The comedy is the'third offering
on the five-bill program by Play
Production of the Department of
Speech. Valentine B. Windt, director
of Play Production, is in charge of
the play and Robert Mellencmp is
art director.

Medicine For Moscow:
Russian Bazaar Will Be Held
By War Relief Society Today
_ ',

$5,000,000 Buying In 1941:
Conservation Is Working Rule
Of Every Branch In University

/

By MARY RONAY
Inaugurating a local fund drive,
the student division of the Russian
War Relief Society will hold a Rus-
sian bazaar from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m.
and from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. today
in the Grand Rapids Room of the
Michigan League.
In order to make the bazaar more
effective, the 7-11 Club will hold a
dance. today in the neighboring Kal-
amazoo Room. The dance will carry
out the theme of the bazaar by hav-
ing decorations and settings of a
Russian nature.
Of further interest to those attend-
ing the affair will be an auction
which will be held in the room of the
bazaar at 9 p.m. Myron Dann, '43,.
will be the official auctioneer for
this special sale.
Many of the articles to be sold at
the bazaar will reflect the spirit of

ley; an antique amber necklace from
the Balkans; a sheet with lace insets,
woven by Russian nuns before the
Revolutidn; a handkerchief bag from
Austria and some authentic Russian
dolls are but a few of the articles
which have just been obtained.
Many interesting and educational
objects will also be on display. One
of these is a hand-woven table run-
ner, made before th first World War
in Poland. This piece has an origi-
nal design, portraying the long strug-
gle of the Polish people.
All the funds raised by this bazaar
will be given to the national Society
for the purchase of medical supplies
which will be sent to the Soviet Army.
But the bazaar is just the begin-
ning of the efforts of the student
committee to obtain funds in the
Russian War Relief Campaign. They
plan to contact all students and cam-

Conservation-usually confined to
the University's forests and class-
rooms-is today the working rule of
every branch of the $80,000,000 in-
stitution.
War dealt a heavy blow to the Uni-
versity's tremendous purchasing,
which last year exceeded $5,000,000,
and new plans of economy are being
worked out to save a myriad of Ā§carce
commodities.
No supplies have been cut out en-
tirely as yet, except for tires and
autos, and the University is reassured
by a flow of materials sent on gov-
ernment preference ratings for work
in research, maintenance and educa-
tion, considered vital to the war ef-
fort.
But University purchasing agent
Walter L. Bulbick reported yesterday

reissued if deemed safe. This prac-
tice, necessitated by a shortage of
these materials which even stringent
economy can make last only till the
end of the school year, was hereto-
fore considered inadvisable.
Bulbick disclosed that important
Hospital supplies such as formalde-
hyde, acetone, alcohol, cresole, U.S.P.,
and certain chemicals are still ob-
tainable, but only with "great diffi-
culty."
In the same category are such of-
fice materials as rubber bands, paper
clips and staples. Rubber bands, used
in the Hospital for surgical dressings,
bottles, food serving and the phar-
macy, will rarely be issued for office
use any longer, Bulbick said. Dr.
Harley A. Haynes, Hospital director,
expressed confidence, however, that
,adequate substitutes will be found if
the estimated two-months stock is
