When Prof. Joseph R. Hayden's
new book, "The Philippines: A Study

the press, the chairman of the poli-
tical science department will add one

Philippine Islands In New Book


ing record of service.
Already prominent on the national
scene because of his work in the
Office of the Coordinator of Infor-
mation, Professor Hayden, now on
leave-of-absence, treats the timely
Philippines in his volume with the
methods and objectivity of a scholar
and the background of a successful
colonial administrator, having served
between 1933 and 1936 as Vice-Gov-
ernor of the Islands.
His book, which will be on "sale
soon, is an authoritative account of
the political, economic and social
transformations in the Philippines
since 1899. It breaks new ground in
the analyses of the relations between
the Islands and the United States.
And it is an up-to-the-minute pre-
sentation of a major American pro-
blem which is still far from solution.
Prior to appointment as vice-gov-
ernor, Professor Hayden had spent
more than two years in the Philip-
pines during three visits tothe Far
East. In 1922-23 and 1930-31, he
was successively exchange and visit-
ing professor in the University of the
Philippines. Meanwhile, as special

Army Library Campaign
To Continue For Week;
Recent Texts Requested
In accordance with the change in
University program, the date set for
the inauguration of the Victory Book
Campaign on campus has been moved
up from Feb. 22 to the week beginning
Feb. 12.
This change in date will give stu-
dents a chance to go over their books,
both at school and at home follow-
ing the final examinations, and select
those which will be of use to men in
the service. It is well at this time
to keep in mind the type of books
desired . by the committee. Special
requests are made for up-to-date
technical books and texts, as well as
historical books, and fiction.
The campaign was organized and
sponsored by the American Library
Association, the American Red Cross,
and the USO, for the purpose of col-
lecting books for men in the coun-
try's military service. The group will
also endeavor to replenish the in-
adequate book supply in crowded in-
dustrial defense centers.
In Ann Arbor, the campaign is un-
der the direction of Miss Frances A.
Hannum, of the city public library,
and Mr. Werner G. Rice, head of the
University Library system. Elabor-
ate plans are now under way for
the collection, sorting, cleaning, and
distribution of the books received
after Feb. 12. Contributions of money
may be made also, and this, to-
gether with money derived from sale
of unwanted or valuable books, will
be used to purchase more reading
material for service men and in-
dustrial workers.

Capt. Harold Hansen and these members of his crew from the torpedoed tanker Norness arrived at
Newport, R.I., and appear here at the state armory. The Captain, one of 38 men rescued from the ship
which was attacked only 60 miles from Long Island, said he did not see the submarine until "We already
were in small boats." He said that his vessel, flying the Panamanian flag, was armed but had no chance
to fire.
