Speakers Meet Before Epic Debate


High ghits

A warm handclasp preceded the debate in Deiroit on'the Reuther
plan between C. E. Wilson (left), General Motors Corp. president, and
Walter P. Reuther (right), UAW-CIO official. Reuther elaims the plan

More A merican Planes Needed
In Middle iast, Air Chief Says

LONDON, April 1.-(UP)-Disclos-
ing that more than a fourth of Bri-
tain's airplanes in the Middle East
come from the United States, one of
Britain's highest air chiefs said to-
night that Hitler "must try an ad-
vance" there this spring and that
more American bombers and fighters
are urgently needed to stop it.
The British have had to "reshuffle"
their air forces somewhat as a result
of war in Malaya and Burma, he
The Axis air assault against Malta
is the prelude to Hitler's Middle-East
attack, the authority asserted.
This assault he described as "ter-
rific," with Field Marshal General
Albert Kesselring, German director of
the 1940'air battle of Britain, super-
vising operations of a large force in
Sicily, Sardinia and Crete from his
headquarters outside Rome.
Malta has been able to stand p to
it only because of a "truly heroic
and successful defense" by one of
the heaviest concentrations of anti-
aircraft guns in the British Empire,
a fine fighter force steadily rein-
forced, an excellent warning system,
extensive dugouts, and well organ-
ized repair facilities, he went on.
United States aircraft plants have
built 10 per cent of the planes now
defending the British Isles, it was
disclosed, in addition to the 25 per
cent in the Middle East.

Fat Salvage Plat
May Be Effected
To etGlycerine
WASHINGTON, April 1. - A -
"Out of the frying pan, into the fir-
ing line," may be the next salvage
campaign slogan for the nation's
Plans are underway, it was learned
today, for a drive to salvage bacon
fat and other greases left over from
Mrs. America's daily stint in the kit-
chen-and pay her four or five cents
a pound for the product.
Details of the proposed campaign
are not perfected, and officials warn-
ed housewives not to begin collecting
and saving grease, until the drive is
announced formally, since it probably
would turn rancid.
As now outlined, - the campaign
would be financed by soap manufac-
turers, who have large government
orders for glycerine needed in explo-
sives. To make glycerine, they must
first make soap, and supplies of im-
ported oils and fats formerly used in
soap production have been curtailed
drastically by the war.
Some 300,000 retail stores and
butcher shops would figure in the
program, it was understood, and the
meat packing industry--already sup-
plying large quantities of fats to the
soap makers--would cooperate.
ANGOLA, La., April 1.-(AP-The
Angola Argus, published by inmates
of the Louisiana State Penitentiary

"April fool's day should be, we be-
lieve, set aside and dedicated wholly

the penal inmates of America."

Eleven Escape
In Disturbance
At Boys School
Extra Precaution Ordered
As Riot Report Denied;
One Soy Still A Large
LANSING, April 1.-UP,-Garrett
Heyns, State Corrections Director,
ordered unusual precautions to pre-
serve the peace at the Boys Voca-
tional School here tonight following
a disturbance among inmates which
brought state and city police to the
school today.
Heyns denied reports the disturb-
ance reached proportions of a riot,
and said he found no evidence that
violence occurred, although 30 of the
boys milled about rebelliously in one
of the cottages and five of them fled
from the building.
The disturbance followed escape of
six other boys from another cottage
last night. Heyns said they crawled
through a basement window, and
there was no disorder. Ten of the
11 escapers were returned to the in-
stitution quickly, and the eleventh
was still at large tonight.
Police officers said they had re-
ceived a "riot call," but that there
was no riot at the institution when
they arrived.
Heyns said one of the boys seized
a paring knife, but that "he seem-
ingly made no attempt to assault
The disturbance marked the sec-
ond day of Heyns' administration as
acting superintendent of the school,
political controversy surrounding
which led recently to resignation of
Major Robert E. Marsh as its execu-
tive head.
Heyns ordered special guards post-
ed tonight and tomorrow, declaring
a staff weakened by resignations of
employes leaving to take better jobs
was a contributing factor to the
He said he would asseble all of
the boys at a Good Friday chapel
service at the school and address
them, "and try to get this thing
straightened out."
The acting superintendent said no
one should be too literal in inter-
preting instructions against corpora
punishment at the school.

tunity for doing something concrete
to aid the war effort."

Wethey, chairman of the fine arts
department in La Sociedad Hispan-
ica's last lecture of the 1941-42 series
at 4:15 p.m. today in Room D, Alumni
Memorial Hall.
A specialist in Spanish art, Pro-
fessor Wethey has recently written
a book and several articles on the
subject. In discussing the "golden
age," or seventeenth century in
Spain, Professor Wethey will describe
the painting as an illustration of the
fanatical religious devotion prevalent.
The realism of the Jesuits as ex-
pressed with characteristic Spanish
intensity in their art will be pointed
out by Professor Wethey. Referring
to the celebrated portraits of the
period, Professor Wethey will show
how they reflect the aristocratic
court life in the reign of Philip IV.
The lecture will be delivered in
