Speaker for the evening was Prof.
Axel Marin of the mechanical en-
gineering department, who spoke on
the life and achievements of the late
Dean Henry C. Anderson, in a talk
titled "An Engineer."
Realizing that all but a few of the
engineering students now in school
had no opportunity to know Dean
Anderson, Professor Marin presented
a brief sketch of the late Dean's life
and the characteristics which made
him so popular and well-liked by
students and faculty members alike.

SRA Craft Groups
Will Hold Opening
ession T orworrow
The first open house of a series of
Student Religious Association spon-
sored Craft Nights will be held at 9
p.m. tomorrow at Lane Hall.
Designed to provide facilities, ma-
terials and qualified instruction for
all students on campus interested in
doing any sort of craft work, the
meetings will customarily begin at
7:30 p.m. every Saturday, but be-
cause of an SRA lecture to be de-
livered by Dr. Roland Elliot in the
Rackham Lecture Hall tomorrow eve-
ning, the workwill not start until
9 p.m.
At the first open house, part of the
time will be devoted to stringing tags
for the World Student Service Fund
drive to, be held on Tuesday.

World Student
Drive To Open
Iite~rxiatioiial ArrangenienLt
Renders Aid Possible
To All War Prisoners
"Help a War Student Day," to be
sponsored Tuesday by the World Stu-
dent Service Fund, will mark the be-
ginning of a drive to aid Chinese stu-
dents, European war prisoners and
refugee students in America.
Bookmarks will be given to con-
tributors as symbols of the student
supplies which the contributions
make possible. The rest of the week,
to be designated as "Help a War Stu-
dent week," is to be devoted to the col-
lection of further contributions in
banks placed around the campus.
Although about half of the cam-
paign is aimed at aiding Chinese
students, the helping of prisoners in
the military camps of Europe also
claims much of the attention of the
One of the most important ques-
tions arising from the plan of the
W.S.S.F. to aid war prisoners abroad
is how such help can be administered
in Germany and Axis-controlled
countries. Little known among Amer-
icans is the fact that as the result of
an international arangement in 1929,
agreed to by all the major powers ex-
cept Russia, impartial agencies are
permitted to administer aid to pris-
oners in military camps.
Germany, contrary to popular ex-
pectation, has complied to the fullest
extent with this agreement, and for
some time a great many books and
other supplies have been sent from
England to war prisoners in Ger-
many, and the English are reported
as confident that every package sent
there has reached its destination.
All supplies sent into German pris-
on camps are handled through neu-
tral countries such as Switzerland
and Sweden. The International Red
Cross cooperates in helping prisoners
in the camps.
Ore Campus
Ganoe To Speak Sunday
A talk by Col. William A. Ganoe,
Commandant of the University ROTC
unit, entitled "How to Handle Men,"
will be given at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at
the regular Sunday night supper
meeting in the International Center.
Colonel Ganoe, author of the most
authoritative military history of the
United States and a former professor
of history at West Point, is also one
of the most noted authorities on per-
sonnel management in the country.
GraduateDance Tomorrow
The Bomber Scholarship fund will
receive another boost towards its
goal of $100,000 with the presenta-
tion of the proceeds of the Graduate
Record Dance to be held from 9 to 12
p.m. tomorrow in the Assembly Hall
of the Rackham Building.

I'Pet. To Tk Today
Jesse Stuart, Kentucky plowman-
poet, will deliver an informal talk at
10:40 p.m today in the Union Ball-
Stuart, author of "Man With a
Bull-Tongue Plow," a collectionof
sonnets, and "Beyond Dark Hills,"
his provincial autobiography, is cele-
brated for his "mountain regionalist"

Buried In
"We buried any offensive which
might aid General MacArthur in 1933
when his warning that the American
Army had fallen below the danger
line' was ignored, and the strength
of the Army not increased," Colonel
W. A. Ganoe, Commandant of the
University ROTC unit, said yesterday
in an interview!
That was his answer to the ques-
tion which opened the interview, butI
from there the interview went on toI
a much broader discussion of the
United State's fighting forces.
General MacArthur's plea for a
larger enlistment was only one of
many such pleas by Army Chiefs of
Staff to maintain an adequate fight-
ing force, Colonel Ganoe pointed out.
From 1922, with the passage of the
National Defense Act, until 1939.
when it was suddenly realized that
this country liter'ally had no Army,
each president refused to ad enough
to his budget for a larger personnel.
Presidents Coolidge and Harding not
only refused to enlarge the Army,
but shunted the number of men to
an even smaller figure.
As for the United States going on
the offensive, the Colonel declared

that "the Japanese would like noth-l
ing better." In the first place, he+
:aid, our Army has less than 301,
fully trained divisions, whereas the,
Japanese and Germans have well
over 460 completely equipped divi-
sions, and everything else in propor-
The Colonel added in strong terms
that we Ameicans are soft, much
less physically fit than the Japanese.
"And regardless of the airplane and
the panzer division," said Colonel
Ganoe, "this is still a marching war.
Foot infantry must occupy and hold
territory; airplanes cannot do that.
The only thing which man runs from
is another man. Dropping bombs
will make people dig in; it will not
make them run."
No nation in its survival is any bet-
ter than its pectoral muscles, he went
on, and the American soldier's stam-
ina is not closely comparable with
that of the Japanese, who can march
from 30 to 45 miles during the day
and do patrolling and scouting at
night. Colonel Ganoe cited several
cases of Japanese endurance which
Americans cannot equal because they
have not built up their strength.
In this respect the Colonel ex-

plained that the United States might
be compared witi Rome, which,
though a stronghold of culture and
learning, still fell before the strength
of the Goths. Physical power, he said,
is equally important to cultural back-
Along another line, Colonel Ganoe
hit the distortions in our history
which claim in the manner of road-
side signs that "America has never
lost a war." The American public. he
said, which had the power in the
'20s and '30s to demand an adequate
Army, could not act because they had
no basis for action-no experience
tables. The truth had not been taught
in schools and colleges.
"The pacifists, the isolationists, and
the people who have demanded a
small fighting force as an economy
measure have denied our true his-
tory," the Colonel declared.
