(Special to The Daily)
KAL AMAZOO, April 21. - Heavy-
hitting Bud Chamberlain socked a
home run with three teammates
aboard today to give the Wolverines
a much desired 5-3 win over a stub-
born Western Michigan nine.
For more than seven innings it
appeared as - though the Broncos
would take their fourth straight win
over the Varsity in the last two years,
but Curley Anderson, Western Mich-
igan hurler, made the mistake in the
eighth of filling the bases with Wol-
verine base runners when he only
had a 2-0 lead. He gave Chamberlain

homer over the right fielder's head,

afternoon was by far the best that
the Wolverines have displayed all

Fishman turned in the top per-
formance by allowing one hit and no
earned runs in the three innings he
worked. Although Cain was tagged
for three hits in the four frames he
was on the mound, the bespectacled
sophomore had only one unearned
run scored off him.
The contest started out as a pitch-
ing battle with neither team scoring
until the fourth inning when the
Wolverines became generous and
handed the Broncos their first run
on two errors.

Nearly a thousand bedridden Uni-

volunteer helpers, clerks and stenog-

which temporarily hampered food

Dr. Harley Haynes, hospital direc-

proximately 35 kitchen maids struck
at 11:30 a.m. for a pay increase
which would boost their total hourly

ent rate, he said, is 40 to 44 cents

of employment.
A strike notice had been filed with
the hospital Monday and an eight

to alleviate the tension.
In contrast to a strike of hospital

offensive would come in the summer
instead of the spring-if it comes at;

The Russians said this officer re-1
lated that the specter of double trou-

into the German High Command it-!

operations were growing dim.

American Bombers

(By The Associated Press)
Central and western Japan were
held under new air alarm yesterday
afternoon, the Berlin radio reported,
but the Japanese themselves confined
their broadcasts to deprecatory re-
ports on Saturday's raids on four
great cities and to hints of a peace
offensive in a lengthy account of
prayers by Japanese Christians for
an early peace.
The German report said that
alarms sounded between 4 and 5 p.m.
Japanese time (3 and 4 a.m., Eastern
War Time), and that "for central
Japan the all-clear sounded about 5
p.m., while the alarm remained in
force for western Japan, especially
for Kyushu."
Strategic Area
Kyushu is the most southern and
westerly of the four main Japanese
islands, nearest China. It has many

Base and the important port of Na-

ing of planes or bombs, so the alarms

day on Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya
and Kobe.
The Tokyo radio said Premir Hi-
deki Tojo would leae Wednesday on
a tour of industrial establishment
in Miye Prefecture, a district some
250 miles west of Tokyo and contain-
ing many war industries.
Pray For Peace
The Japanese broadcast on prayers
for peace quoted Toyohko Kagawa,
most famous Japanese Christianlead-
r, as saying that more than 200
Japanese Christians prayed day and
night for a week before the outbreak
of war and that even now "prayers
are being said daily 'for an early
;onclusion of the war and restora-
tion of peace throughout the world."
This broadcast might be a cautious
feeler in a "peace offensive"-of the
type which Archibald MacLeish,
iirector of the Federal Office of Facts
ind Figures, predicted Monday the
Axis would launch this summer.

Scholutic Fort Besieged:
Marshall Slashes At Colleges'
Failure To Inform On War


Michigan Gets Melodious hymn:

"The failure of our educational
system in enlightening the people to
their duties as citizens was a great
factor in bringing about America's
j entrance in the war," according to
S. L. A. Marshall, radio commenta-
tor and military critic of the Detroit
News, speaking for the Women's
Field Army for the Control of Cancer
Stressing the fact that we need "to
come down from our ivory towers and
realize that we have a tremendous
job to do," he stated that it is not
possible for a young man to grow up
in the United States and go to a
single American college, with the pos-
sible exception of Princeton Univer-
sity, and graduate capable of going
to Congress and talking intelligently
about militar' affairs.

there is no longer any choice, that
there is no half-way stand to take.
A man is either for the war and its
whole hearted prosecution or against
it and against his country."
Stating that our main difficulty
arises from the fact that we have
been so little affected by the war, he
said that we have only begun to sac-
rifice and goin without cars, sugar
and cuffs is just the beginning. The
question of whether or not the public
is awake to the war can be measured,
not by what they say but by their ac-
tions in time of crisis.
In Marshall's opinion the greatest
single need of America is the regen-
eration of democracy and this can
be obtained not by sitting around and
waiting for a leader to tell us what to
do but by acting as individuals.

Student Song To Be Introduced
AtGlee Club's Spring Concert

Written by two University students,
a new and melodious Michigan hymn
will be introduced to the campus at
the annual spring concert of the
Men's Varsity Glee Club which will
be held at 8:15 p.m. tomorrow in Hill
This hymn takes its title and
theme from the University motto,
"Artes, Scientia, Veritas" (Mater
Michigan) and is dedicated to Presi-
dent Ruthven by the authors. Clar-
ence Klopsic, '42BAd, business man-
ager of the glee club wrote the words
for the hymn, while Donald Plott,
'44SM, student conductor of the club
and also student conductor of the
University Choir composed the music.
The hymn will be sung by the
glee club in the second half of the

formal program, consisting of various
secular and sacred selections. Dur-
ing some of the numbers, the organ
will accompany the piano and sing-
ers. One of the songs ,"The Voice of
Freedom," which will be thus ac-
companied, is based on Rubenstein's
"Kammenoi Ostrow." The arrange-
ment for men's chorus by Cailliet
which will be used retains all the
power and beauty of the selection as
written by the composer.
Although the second part of the
concert will be of a lighter nature,
it will close on a more serious tone.
Four songs, popular during the
United States' great wars, will be
rendered. These will include "Yankee
Doodle," "Battle Hymn of the Re-
