Local High School Seniors
Will Open Systematic
Campaign Next Week
As part of the city-wide canvass
to solicit pledges to purchase war
bonds, local high school seniors will
call at the homes of all University
employes Monday and Tuesday of
next week, asking them to partici-
pate in a systematic savings plan.
The University's answer to the in-
auguration of the nation-wide bond-
buying campaign, which will begin
next week, is designed to make bond
purchases easier through regular
Through the savings plan, every
University employe-be he a dean
or custodian-will be able to buy
bonds without reducing savings ac-
counts. Deductions are made in mul-
tiples of $3.75 per month from pay-
rolls for the purchase of Series 'E'
Purely voluntary, pledges may be
revoked at any time. Information
concerning the plan has been mailed
to most employes with pledge cards.
Similar plans have proven very
popular in many industries. The
payroll deductions are added up from
month to month until the fund is
sufficient to purchase a bond of the
denomination indicated on the
pledge. Series 'E' bonds come in de-
nominations of $25, $50, $100, $500

Will Aid Fleet,
Strongly urging far greater use of
the torpedo plane as potentially the
deadliest weapon of a fleet arm, Prof.
Edward A. Stalker, head of the aero-
nautical engineering department,
yesterday charged that the German
battleships which escaped through
the Straits of Dover would have been
sunk by high-class torpedo planes.
Citing the rout of the Italian fleet
at Taranto by old-type British
Swordfishes and the sinking of the
mighty Nazi battleship Bismarck by
similar planes, he pointed out that
when a dozen or more such aircraft
attack capital ships, hits are almost
Stalker lamented that insufficient
design attention has been paid this
type of aircraft, and stressed that,
such planes in use are both slow and
lacking in armament.
Field Of Aviation
In an article in the Michigan
Alumnus Quarterly Review, he cov-
ered the whole field of war aviation-
time and again making clear his con-
viction that air power properly used
will be the decisive factor in this war.
In his discussion of the U.S. plane
production program, he said, "when
it comes to mass production America
is unique. America can certainly
count on having the huge quantities
of planes necessaryto win the war."
Stalker also declared without qual-
ification that "there is no limit in
sight as to the size of aircraft" and
added that since speeds of large and
small planes are tending toward
equal maximums, fighters will prob-
ably become large aircraft "carrying
great fire-power and able to attain
great range and altitude."
In this connection also he ap-
proved huge transport planes which
in the post-war era could fill many
of the present functions of trains
and large sea liners.
Stalker discussed the question of
mass production versus innovation
in detail, stating that "an air force
numerically inferior should concen-
trate on production," but that when
equality approached, "innovations
adapted to the production design
can be made."
In I'Leture Toay
A special talk on designing trans-
mission towers will be given by C.
M. Goodrich, consulting engineer for
the Canadian Bridge Company, at
10:30 a.m. today in Room 402 West
The lecture, which will deal with
various phases of engineering in re-
gard to tower designing. will he sup-
plemented by illustrations of the
theory of "Limit Design."
Goodrich has had several years of
experience all over the world and
was a pioneer in the field of trans-
mission and radio towers.
Although the lecture is especially
recommended to engineering stu-
dents interested in metal structure,
anyone else interested is cordially
invited to attend.

Allies Repulse Japanese Fleet
In Tremendous Naval Battle
(Contiumed from Page 1)
the Southwest Pacific area. This battle arises from operations which I
announced carlier today had begun May 4 with some losses to the enemy.
"What is taking place is of crucial importance to the whole conduct
of the war in this theatre. I have no information as to how the engage-
ient is dcvcloping. I woould like the nation to- know, however, that there
will be on thf part of our forces and the forces of the United States that
devotion to duty which is characteristic of the naval and air forces of the
United Siates, Britan and this Commonwealth.
"One further thing I should say: nobody at this moment can tell what
the result of this engagement will be. If it should go advantageously we
will have cause for great gratitude and our position will be clearer.
"Bt if we should not have the advantages in this battle which we
hope for, we will have a sterner ordeal and greater and graver responsi-
"ttThis battle will not decide the war. It will determine the immediate
tactics which will be pursued by ourselves and the common enemy. I ask
the people of Australia, having regard to the grave consequences implicit
in this cngagement, to take a sober, realistic estimate of their duty to the
nation. As I speak those who are participating in this engagement are
conforming to the sternest discipline, subjecting themselves with all they
have-the last measure of devotion it may be for many of them-to
accomplishing the increased safety and security of this territory.
"And in the face of their example and their discipline I feel it is not
asking overmuch of every citizen who today is being defended by these
gallant men in this area to regard himself as being engaged in the second
line service of Australia. This today is the front line. It needs the maxi-
mum support of every man and woman in the Commonwealth.
"With all the responsibility which I feel, which the Government feels,
which I am quite sure Parliament as a whole shares, I put it to every man
whom these words reach-however they may reach him-that he owes
it to those men and tofe future of the country not to be stinting in what
he will now do for Australia."
"Men are fighting for Australia today, Mr. Speaker. Those who are
not fighting have no excuse for not working."
