Vital Alaskan Bases Preserve
Communications, Baxter Says

Alaska's air and naval bases are
the most important single factor in
preserving Our vital lines of commun-
ication with this Territory and, in
turn, these bases .and communica-
tion lines are exceedingly vital if we
are to use Alaska as a poten-
tial springboard for an attack up-
on Japan, Prof. Dow V. Baxter of
the School of Forestry and Conser-
vation said in an interview yester-
In explaining what the war means
to Alaska, Professor Baxter was ap-
prehensive of a possible enemy block-
ade around the Territory since that
land may well be the world's next
battleground. He pointed out that
the coastline from Dixon's Entrance
to the Aleutian Islands is thorough-
ly fortified, and upon these air bases
depends the future of the resident
Professor Baxter, who has spent
the many field seasons studying for-
est pathology in this region, said
that "although most of Alaskan
friends were expecting a war with
Japan long before Pearl Harbor, they
have been unable to supply them-
selves with necessities over long peri-

ods." Because there are no roads
through Canada, vital supplies to the
canneries, mines, and the people
themselves must be carried along the
sea lanes which are now guarded by
the Army and Navy bases.
As an example of Alaskan depend-
ence upon this country for certain
staples, he emphasized that each year1
the Terirtory imports many millions
of dollars worth of American prod-t
ucts. "It is evident," he said, "thatj
this country, which is potentially one
of the world's next battlefields, is
wholly dependent upon waterways forY
the transportation of supplies to
them and the conveyance of war
minerals and other products of her
industries to the United States. The
canning industry is especially con-Y
"However, as long as the air fields
at Kodiak, Anchorage and Dutch E
Harbor still stand," he declared, strik-
ing an optimistic note, "a blockade
is not very likely."
The function of these bases to1
facilitate air transportation as well
as to protect it should not be over-
looked, he also mentioned. Many of
the large boats formerly used to
transport essentials for the Alaskan
peace-time needs are now being em-
ployed to supply military garrisons,,
and freighting material by air may
become a greater necessity than ever
Even prior to the war-times planes
were used within the Territory to,
transport machines, parts, and heavy
mining equipment to isolated areas.
While discussing the possibilities
of war reaching this northern land,
Professor Baxter felt that the cli-
mate of the country would be a fac-
tor in the determination of the suc-
cess or failure of air protection
against the enemy. "The visibility
at the time of conflict is exception-
ally important," he claimed, "for
those Alaskan fogs along the coasts
will have much to do with defensive
or offensive air tactics."
illfel To Give
Humor Show
Proceeds Will Be Giveni
To War Relief Groups
Applause by the audience will be
the criterion for award of the cup
for the best act in "Hillelzapoppin' "
Hillel Foundation's stunt show which
will open at 8 p.m. Friday at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The cup will be the least incentive
for excellence, for, more important,
the total gate of the show will be
given to various war relief agencies.
The major portion will go to the
Bomber Scholarship Fund.
Seven acts in all will comprise the
show. The individual acts will be
presented by fraternities, sororities
and League houses.
"Hillelzapoppin'" replaces the Hil-
lel Players' annual major production.
The suspension of the play was made
as part of Hillel Foundation's pro-
gram to aid the war effort.
The acts in "Hillelzapoppin'" in-
clude humor, satire and "drama." But
even the acts aid the war effort with

In the first public lecture ever to
be included in the annual campaign
of the Women's Field Army for the
Control of Cancer, S. L. A. Marshall,
radio commentator and critic for the
Detroit News, will speak on "Our
Part In the War Today" at 8:15 p.m.
Tuesday in Hill Auditorium.
Marshall, well-known to radio and
newspaper audiences, is also the au-
thor of several recent books on mili-
tary subjects. Among these are
"Blitzkrieg," "How the Army Organ-
ized for War" and "Armies On
Wheels." His lecture will include
excerpts from his varied career as an
Army officer and newspaper man.
He is a veteran of the first World
War, having served as a'lieutenant in
France and Italy with the Army En-
gineering Corps. In 1917, while in-
strutting at Camp Travis, he origi-
nated'the hand grenade throw which
is still in use.
s His career as a newspaper man has
been an eventful one. In 1936-37 he
covered the Spanish Civil War for
the Detroit News and acted as spe-
cial writer on Mexican affairs and
military policy for the North Ameri-
can Newspaper Alliance.
The funds from the lecture, along
with other receipts from the month-
long campaign, will be used to furth-
er the research, education and cure
of cancer. Part of the money will
be donated to the two local hospitals,
and the rest will be sent to the State
and National headquarters of the

the direction of Mrs. H. Marvin Pol-

Professor Kingsley, in pointing out
again and again that to win the war
and the peace we must continually
expand democracy while we fight,
laid down a 10-point program which
he said "is the minimum of social
change we must accomplish." The
program is:
1. Universal democracy and civil
2. Limitation of national sovereign-
ty-particularly in economic matters.
3. Sharp reduction of trade bar-
4. Internationalization of capital
placement, which would include an
international bank.
5. Free movement of population.
6. Cultural but not political au-
tonomy for minority groups in the
small nations of Europe.
7. Internationalization of colonies
with the promise of future independ-
8. Dual access to raw materials.
9. Minimum guaranteed living
standard for all-"it is criminal to
allow anyone to go undernourished
in these times."
10. National and regional economic
planning with mixed public controls
and private enterprise.
New Society
Kingsley said that the society
which would come from such a pro-
gram as he outlined would be neither
socialism nor capitalism but some-
thing entirely new.
"It is," he said, "a large order, but
it is the basic minimum for democ-
racy and for peace. It cannot be
realized on an international level
first, however. The changes can
come only if they are first brought
about inside the nations-especially
in America, for we will be the only
nation in position at the end of the
war to assist in the economic recon-
struction of the world."
Never Compromise
Dr. McMahon also blasted in his
talk any thought of a negotiated
peace. Terming it "a cancerous
thought," he said that "we must
never compromise and never appease
those who collaborate with the Axis."
"We cannot be friends with the
friends of Hitler," he declared in call-
ing for the immediate capture of
lichy-held islands such as Mada-
gascar. "These may be taken easily
if we do so within 72 hours but if
we wait two weeks the task will be
infinitely greater."
