World Student Servee Drive
"Assumes .New Responsibities
,Funds Raised In American Colleges Support Reliel


To Play Here Thursday


Of ForeignColleagues, 'Universities In Exile'

With thousands of European stu-
dents- in prison camps, 25,000 Chi-
nese students in need of relief and
many former American students-
among prisoners of war, the annual
World Student Service Fund Drive
takes on a new and even greater sig-
niificance this year.
Last year the W.S.S.F. Drive netted
*700 on campus and that contribu-
tion towards the national fund aided
students throughout the world. This
year, however, the needs of the Fund
Dr. Leverson
Will Give Talk
On Petroleum
Will Discuss Oil Situation
And Probable Supply

Of U.S.

And Europe

Dr. A. I. Leverson, consulting geol-
ogist and past president of the Amer-.
ican Geologists, will present an illus-
trated lecture at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday
in the Rackham Amphitheatre on
Petroleum Reserves and Discovery. "
Sponsored by the University De-
partment of Geology, the talk will be
of a popular nature, and all students
are invited to attend.
Discoverer of a new oil field in the
region of Tulsa, Okla., Dr. Leverson
,has been active in organizing re-
search programs in cooperation with
universities and oil companies for the
preservation and full use of presert
Dr. Leverson will discuss the gen-
eral petroleum situation in the
'nted States and other parts of the
Iworld. He will present some avail-
able facts on how much oil is now in
the ground, and how fast new fields
are being discovered.
Since two thirds of the world's oil
supply is produced in this country, it
is of primary interest to those con-
cerned with oil production to know
whether the ratio of discovery to us-
age is equal, where other fields out-
side the U. S., may be developed, and
in general terms, what the future
holds in regard to petroleum produc-
tion. Dr. Leverson will present an-
,swers to many of their questions.

problems, I firmly believe we may
have 100 years of peace; but if they
are dhandled in the same old League-

- Having only recently returned
from Europe, Nichol is at present on
leave from the Chicago Daily News.
He served as that paper's foreign
correspondent in Berlin from Sep-
tember, 1940, to June, 1941, and then
in'Switzerland until shortly after the
declaration of war. A former Daily

are much greater, totaling $100.000
to be used for student relief.
Specifically, here is what the
W.S.S.F. does: It provides aid to stu-
dents and professors'who are victims
of war; no relief organization dupli-
cates this work. An appeal is made
only to American students for sup-
port, it does not approach the gen-
eral public. It is international, non-
sectarian, and .on-political. The
W.S.S.F. provides relief plus educa-
tion, plus reconstruction.
Students Aided
Since 1937, $151,000 has been
raised by American students. A part
of these funds has been used for aid-
ing Chinese students, 10,900 of them
in 1101 colleges; purchasing food for
starving students, largest of all ex-
penditures; travel aid has been pro-
vided to help students reach trans-
planted universities; clothing, medi-
cal aid, lodgings, student centers, and
self help projects have been pro-
1150 European students have also
been given aid from W.S.S.F. money;
French, British, Polish and Canadian,
prisoners of war received books and
study materials last year.
Prisoners Taught
In addition,'- traveling secretaries
have helped men in 106 prison camps.
"Universities in captivity" have been
set up in Canada and Australia for
interned anti-Nazis and German
prisoners of war. European refugee
students of many irationalities have
been supplied with meals, shelter,
books or university fees. Since 1937,
400 refugee students have been
helped in the United States.
But this year the needs of the
'W.S.S.F. have increased to a tre-
mendous size. Tens of thousands of
men and women in internment camps
are in desperate need. Food and cloth-
ing are provided, but nothing is done
for the mind and spirit. Contribu-
tions to the W.S.S.F. will help pro-
vide books, recreation and "univer-
sities" for these students in addition
to giving food, clothing, shelter and
medical attention. Both in China and
in Europe money is needed to help
thousands of students continue their
Medical Corps
Course Offered
Designed for students who are soon
to be inducted into military service
and have no particular training, a
non-credit course for Medical Corps
helpers is being offered this semester
by the Health Service.
It is to be understood, the Health
Service announced yesterday, that
completion of the course does not
insure assignment to the Medical
Corps. But it is felt that the course
will be worthwhile for those students
who are unqualified for officers'
The course, which will be given
over eight-week periods, will cover
such fields as laboratory work and
the use of hypodermics. Those in-
terested should apply at the Health

Nation's War Time
Scornfully disdaining the national
time change as strictly small-fry
stuff, the men of Brandeis Coopera-
tive House have set out to show what
professional clock manipulators can
do if they really get down to business.
The gentlemen of Brandeis have
decided that they definitely don't
like eight o'clock classes-or any
morning classes for that matter. So,
taking a hint from the government's
action, thiey have moved their clocks
ahead-not one hour. not two hours
-but five hours.
Thus was established Brandeis
Standard Time. Under the new re-
gime all eight o'clocks have become
one o'clocks, and no longer is it nec-
essary for house members to arise
before the luxurious hour of 12:15
p.m., B. S. Time.
So great has been the psychologi-
cal effect of the move, according to
Alvin D. Graham, Grad., a house
member, that "Not only do I feel
bright and chipper when my alarm
rings for my first class, but also on
arising I devour a hearty lunch in-
stead of breakfast."
One of the most important impli-
cations of the action is that despite
the new University proposal to move
women's Friday curfew up to 12:30
a.m. Brandeis men will be able to
keep their dates out until 5:30 a.m.

'Red Star' Predicts Nazi Fall;
Announces Receipt Of Supplies


(By The Associated Press)
MOSCOW, Feb. 20.-(IP)-Red Star,
voice of the Russian army, an-
nounced today that an ever-increas-
ing flow of war materials is being
received from the United States and
Britain, and predicted that the gath-
ering forces of the three powers
would crush the Nazi war machine
this year.
The newspaper said "The help we
are receiving from our allies is grow-
ing continuously," and added that
"No doubt, simultaneously the mili-
tary efforts of our allies will grow."
Pointing out that "Germany will
be weaker in manpower this spring
Eleanor Roosevelt
ResignsOCD Post
WASHINGTON, Feb. 20. - (P) -
Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt resigned
from the Office of Civilian Defense
today to protect that agency from
criticisms by those who, she said,
"wish to attack me because of my
James M. Landis, OCD director, ac-
cepted her resignation with a letter
praising her for a "vision and en-
ergy" that had enabled OCD to carry
out its tasks and make citizens ev-
erywhere aware that they have a
war task to perform.
At the height of the recent con-
troversy over what many termed the
frills and furbelows of OCD, Landis
succeeded Mayor LaGuardia of New
York, as director, and Mrs. Roosevelty
announced she would withdraw as
soon as organizational work was

than she was last summer," Red Star
said Adolf Hitler's spring offensive,
if any, was doomed to failure.
The army organ said the Germans
lost 6,000,000 men in the first six
months of the war with Russia and
had proportionately even greater
losses since then. This would place
the total of German dead, wounded
and captured at something over
9,000,000 men.
Red Star said Germany would not
replace such a loss from her man-
power reserves or those of her satel-
lite nations.
Reserves in manpower and ma-
terials will spell victory in the end,
and Russia; Britain and the United
States have more of those reserves
than the Axis, the newspaper de-
Dispatches from the battlefront
continued in much the same tone as
all those of recent weeks-reporting
the Red army still forging to the
west and beating down German
counter attacks.
From the southern front, where
snow is giving way to rain anid
warmer weather, there was word of
new gains into the Donets Basin, and
German counter attacks in one sec-
tor were said to have cost the Nazis
1,500 men in three days.
(Observers in London said there
were indications that the Red army
drive to recapture the great Donets
industrial center of Kharkov is near
a climax, with fighting close to the
I city.)
