All notices for the Daily Official Bul-
letin are to be sent to the Office of the
President in typewritten form by 3:30
p.m. of the day preceding its publica-
tion, except on Saturday when. the no-
tices should be submitted by 11:30 a.n.
Notice: Attention of all concerned,
and particularly of those having of-
fices in Haven Hall, or the Western
portion of the Natural Science Build-
ing is directed to the fact that park-
ing or standing of cars in the drive-
way between these two buildings is
prohibited because it is at all times
inconvenient to other drivers and to
pedestrians on the diagonal and other
walks. If members of your family
call for you, especially at noon when
traffic both on wheels and on foot is
heavy, it is especially urged that the
car wait for you in the parking space'
adjacent to the north door of Uni-
versity Hall. Waiting in the driveway
blocks traffic and involves confu-
sion, inconvenience and danger just
as much when a person is sitting in
a car as when the car is parked

You Can Save Soldiers
By Registering Today
A FEW POINTS you should know
about this Red Cross Blood Bank:
1.. Your blood will be turned into plasma
which will save lives right on the FIELD OF BAT-
2. The transfusion doesn't hurt.
3. The Union staff will register you TODAY
and every day either in the Union lobby or in the
war stamp booth on North University and State.
4. Only 125 persons can be taken care of
Oct. 21. But all persons wishing to give blood
will be taken care of when the Blood Bank re-
turns later. They should, therefore, register
promptly in the Union lobby or in the war
stamp booth on the corner of North University
and State Streets.
5. If you are under 21, obtain parental con-
sent immediately.

LQyal Oppostion Means
Defeting The Enemy!
troit Free Press thinks it should be
the Republican Party-is a much misunderstood
term. The Free Press' publisher, John S. Knight,
makes it a matter of printed misunderstanding.
In his Editor's Notebook Sunday, Mr. Knight
wrote that Wendell Willkie, now on a tour of
the United Nations, could do America a great
service "by coming home aida dealing with
problems that he. knows something about."
Wilkie, he said, has fallen down on the job of
the loyal opposition, because he is not home to
pick out the faults of the Administration.
The ideal loyal opposition gives up its party
fights, cooperates with the Administration, offers
its help and takes jobs with the government. Re-
publicans like Frank Knox and Henry Stimson
both cabinet members, show what can be done
by men who place country above party.
Mr. Knight wants Willkie to come back from
his tour of the United Nations, a tour that is
bringing understanding and cooperation between
them, to preserve "the identity of the minority
party" and to furnish such opposition to "the
weaknesses of the New Deal as could be construc-
tively offered."
Would Mr. Knight claim that the opponents
of the "starry idealists like Harry Hopkins and
Archibald MacLeish" in the Republican Party
-perhaps Ham Fish or Stephen Day or even
Claire Hoffman-are going to be an intelligent
opposition to the New Deal's mistakes?
Willkie is doing a job that is useful in bringing
about genuine sympathy between the United Na-
tions. If he came home, his job, as Mr. Knight
envisions it, would be to try to push America's
greatest collection of mediocrities into a position
of value.
W ILLKIE has been one of this war's best "good-
will" ambassadors. Let's keep him in that

Ai AXE to qnond
college has ,come true. I thought it an ideal
place where strong and brilliant young men into
which category I easily fitted, went around arm
in arm, roaming the fields, and discussing cate-
gorical imperatives. College was a delicious nut
sundae, topped off with the rich whip cream of a
kindly benevolent faculty, which had two con-
cerns, to throw all examination papers into the
handiest waste basket as soon as possible, and to
sit and smoke at students until they had become
enveloped in a lush haze of warm humanism.
Which was rather nice.
It hasn't turned out that way. Except for John
He was (past tense for people in the army) the
most brilliant person I -have ever met. He was
one of the nicest people I ever met-with a ter-
rific sense of humor.
It's hard to write a "Reader's Digest' Most Un-
forgettable Person sort of thing, he was too real
for that. But I think that I can remember a few
things about him that show up a really great
HIS FUNCTION, as he conceived it, was to use
his intelligence-which he knew to be great
with an excellent lack of false modesty-in the
field where he thought it could be best applied,
as. a scholar, and as a teache. Lots of time the
scholarship part went over your head-or seemed
to-like his book on "The Language of Poetry".
But he was quite able to defend it against the
forty-some odd engineers in our dorm, whose
opinion he valued highly, because he believed that
they were human beings like himself. Not that
there was any lack of discrimination; I had a
class from him (English 33), in which there were
several sorority girls who were hardly human be-
ings like himself-these he could make look ridic-
ulous better than any person I have ever seen,
and without hurting their feelings at all.
AS A TEACHER, and an actual molder of lives,
he did a job on me that was rather typical.
When I came to college, I was a red-hot inactive
Communist (he called it Marxist; he was always
very careful with words). I was a Marxist because
nobody appreciated me, whereas I knew an ideal
society must-and also because I didn't see any
reason why there couldn't be an ideal society.
John Arthos smoked at me every so often at the
dinner table, talked a bit with this quiet insis-
tence and pretty soon I knew that you can't
change human nature. But still nobody appreci-
ated me, and I didn't believe in an ideal society
any more, so I was very unhappy. Another few
cartoons, and I learned to appreciate myself. In
short, he made. the first part of maturation a
relatively painless thing-I know he did the same
for others.
nature at all; he didn't know as much about
football as he. did Greek, but he liked football.
As to the humor, I can just remember one gag.
There was one kid in our dorm, a rather supercil-
ious -self-styled culture patrician, who really had-
good taste, but whom I couldn't abide. I got rath-
er worried after a few arguments with this per-
son, arguments in which I had been bested by
his siperciliousness. I asked Mr. Arthos just how
intelligent the kid was. "Oh," he said cheerfully,
"it's quite amazing. He has absolutely no mind at
all." Besides Arthos liked the Aarx brothers, and

WASHINGTON-Before Wendell Willkie left
for Russia and China, he had an interesting
conversation with Harold Moskovit, of the Affil-
iated Young Democrats of New York, which
sheds significant light on Willkie's ideas for 1944.
Moskovit asked Willkie why he hadn't run for
the New York gubernatorial nomination, as
many of his friends had urged him to do, to
keep Tom Dewey off the ticket.
Willkie replied that he had considered the
matter carefully, but found that he had only
about thirty per cent of the Republican machine
in New York with him, and his friends had ad-
vised him not to run without machine support.
Then Willkie added:
"My own party is getting more and more
conservative, and I'm worried over what's
goil.g to happen when it comes to writing the
peace. We cannot make the same mistake we
made after the last war and let the isola-
tionists get control. Isolationist Republican
obstruction after the last war was the greatest
contribution that was ever made to this war,
and we can't go on fighting wars every twenty
"But," continued Willkie, "your own party
isn't much better. The conservative Demo-
crats seem to be coming back into power to
such an extent that there isn't much differ-
ence between the Republicans and the con-
servative Democrats."
Willkie went on to say that he would watch
the elections very carefully this November to
see what the score was on the election of liberal
senators and representatives. On the outcome
of the November election, he said, would depend
whether or not it might be a good idea to talk
about an independent liberal third party. Mean-
while it has become known that Willkie's old
Republican friends put a lot of pressure on him
just before he left to make a speech for Dewey.
Persuading Willkie to support Dewey was not
an easy job, because the ambitious young dis-
trict attorney is the last man Willkie wanted to
see nominated on the Republican ticket, either
for governor of New York, or as presidential
candidate in 1944.
However, Willkie's friends say they got a com-
mitment out of him to speak for Dewey, if he
got back from China in time.

Prof. Norman Anning came over yesterday with
three of his own exuberantly patriotic win-the-
war ideas.
His number one suggestion is to get rid of
the "offensive' war poster in the Arcade post
office. Although its successor may be in equal-
ly bad taste, says Professor Anning, the one
there now will make us hate the post office in-
stead of the "Nazis by Christmas, when we're
