explanation of the reasons behind
every exercise and general possibili-
ties of the war.
9. That a followship and leadership
be developed which will be as good
for business as for military success;
and that in the only laboratory for
practice in handling human beings in
the University there be used only
that kind of leadership methods that
will answer the definition-the abil-
ity to make men want to follow.
Eve by this process of ceaseless
physical training, however, Colonel
Ganoe feels that it is doubtful that
"we can in five years bring our men
to the ruggedness and endurance so
vital to the modern army, so remark-
ably attained by Germans and Japs
"And it is a part of our softness not
to recognize the softness," he added.
"Frankly we are not facing remediali
action squarely. We are fussing with I
"In this institution as in many
others I have inspected, we are far
below physical hardihood and en-
durance," he charged. "And all this
is in contrast to the condition of the
Jap soldiers, which condition has had
as much to do with their success as
their weapons if not more."
According to Colonel Ganoe, physi-
[cal examples of backwardiess at the
University of Michigan are :
1. The Boiler-House ROTC.
2. Classrooms for junior and senior
ROTC men which would be con-
demned by a health officerbof New
York City.
3. One-hour drills not worthy of
the name (recently changed, but
change not initiated by authorities).
Insisting that this is no time for
faculty jealousies, institutional con-
ceits, normal schedules or sustained
prejudices, Colonel Ganoe reminded
that "we are at war. The war can
and will touch us all. If we're sincere
about winning it, the path to follow
is undeviatingly plain: we must come
out into the open and do the things
best promoting the endurance of our
students and our nation, irrespective
of personal desires."
In a special statement to The Daily
yesterday, Colonel Ganoe pointed out
that "No culture has ever saved a
civilization; it takes a big biceps and
a low brow to turn the trick." Not-
ing that the Goths and Visisgoths
"kicked in the guts" out of the more
"cultured" Romans, he declared that
there is nothing more important than
physical strength in insuring the ex-
istence of civilization.
"The country is quivering for
someone to take the lead in a staunch
reply to Hitler's youth movement,"
he concluded. "Why not let it be the
University of Michigan?"

Weeks of intensive practice ended for the cast of La Independencia, annual Spanish play, when the cur-
tain rang down on the final act Tuesday at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. Prof. Staubach, director, has
already lost his "Mr. Casper Milquetoast" expression and the behind the scenes committees have returned
all borrowed properties. If nothing else, the play brought out the Spanish in the students, who are pictured
above, dressed in the gay and colorful costumes of nineteenth century Spain. The turnout for the play was
the largest in many years and nobody went home disappointed.

In view of the constant stream of
faculty men leaving for key positions
in the war program, the University
has cancelled all regular sabbatical
leaves and is scrutinizing all requests
for leave to make certain that such
leaves will be in the best inteests of
the war effort.
It was pointed out yesterday that
such action is being taken because of
the belief that the maintenance of a
strong faculty is the most important
factor in turning out a continuous
supply of trained men and women for
the armed forces and war industries.
President Ruthven and War Board
officials have continuously empha-
sized that the University is anxious
to do as much as possible in supply-
ing technicians and authorities from
its faculty for various specialized
fields of government service. j
Most Important Task
They feel, at the same time, how-
ever, that the institution must con-
tinue training engineers, doctors,
dentists, industrial managers, chem-
ists, physicists and other specialized
personnel as its most important task
in the nation's war program.
According to the War Board, 22
members of the faculty have recently
been called to duty in government
agencies and essential war industries
in addition to those who are in ac-
tive service with the armed forces.
Included among the former are:
Prof. Preston E. James, geographer,
now chief of the Latin American af-
fairs section of the Federal Office of
the Coordinator of Information.
Prof. Charles F. Remer, economist,

Kalamazoo Room of the League.
Athena, honorary women's speech
society, has outlined a group of five
lectures on current topics. The series
includes talks on Latin-America, Rus-
sia, the British Empire, and the future
peace plan, but the remaining speak-
ers have not yet been named. _

Will Familiarize Workers
With Group'sFaclties
Designed to familiarize Civilian
Defense Volunteer Office workers
with existing CDVO machinery, the
third session of a volunteer orienta-
tion course will be held at 10 a.m.
today in the Armory.
This course is aimed at men and
women-townspeople, facultyamem-
bers and their families-who are ac-
tively engaged in CDVO work at the
present time.
The course was instituted after
'many queries as to the set-up and
mechanics ofthetvolunteer group.
Projected enlargements of the cur-
rent program will also be taken up
at meetings of the course.
Tuesday's session emphasized the
functions of existing CDVO facilities,
and emphasized the usefulness of
such community organizationseven
after the war.
"A volunteer defense program is of
paramount importance even if we are
never bombed," the session was told.
The present state of emergency was
called sufficient to warrant volunteer

For years, telephone cable has been hung by stiff wire rings
from its supporting strand. But repeated expansion and con-
traction caused by temperature changes sometimes proved
too much for even the best cable sheath. Fatigue cracks
developed near the poles - this meant leaks -possible ser-
vice interruptions-expensive repairs.
Recently, men of the Bell System developed a machine
thqt lashes the cable and strand together in such a way that
the concentration of strains near the poles is minimized.
The Cable Lasher has also proved a great aid in the speedy
