Romulo Speaks1
Of Jungle War
In Philippines
Variations In Techniques
Of Warfare Describedt
To JudgeAdvocate ClassI
Difficulties encountered in jungle
warfare were described to the studentP
officers and staff of the Judge Advo-7
cate General's School yesterdayX
morning by Lt. Col. Carlos P. Romulo,
former aide-de-camp to General1
MacArthur. .I
"Jungle fighting is different fromt
the traditional type of military com-
bat," he said, since you are not only
fighting the enemy but must also
contend with snakes, poisonous in-
sects, scorching heat and tropical
Japanese Underestimated
"The Japanese have been under-i
estimated," Romulo declared, point-
ing out that they had made landings1
in the Philippines where it had been
considered impossible to do so. He
also scorned reports that the Japanese
lack individual initiative and related
how effectively their snipers had
eperated on Bataan.
Describing differences between
American and Japanese troops, Rom-
ulo asserted that the minimum of
comforts required by the United
States soldier is the maximum re-
quired for the Japs.
Fight With Hatred
"The Japs fight with hatred in
their hearts since they are fighting
for their emperor and have been in-
doctrinated with hate for the white
race," he explained, but hastened to
emphasize that he did not mean that
the United States and Filipino troops
were not good fighters.
Colonel Romulo's talk before the
Judge Advocate General's School was
arranged because of his friendship
with Major Mariano A. Erana, one
of the student officers, who served
with him on the staff of Manuel Que-
zon, president of the Philippines.

No Turkey Day
For Students?
EAST LANSING, Oct. 23.- ()-;
Michigan State College students weree
urged editorially today to forego their
traditional four-day Thanksgiving
vacation this year to conserve trans-
portation and to attend classes on
Thanksgiving Day as usual.
In a signed editorial by Sheldon
Moyer of Detroit, managing editor,
The Michigan State News, college
publication, declared:
"Thanksgiving Day is more of a
habit than a tradition for many folks.
But we could actually express our
thanks this year that we are fortunate
enough to be at college in a nation
that is still relatively free from the
pains and agonies of war. We could
be thankful to attend classes this
Moyer suggested that train and bus
schedules will be over-loaded with;
furloughing service men and that
elimination' of the vacation. would
permit the fall term to end three days
early at Christmas time.

Men, Women
Of University
In answer to a call by the Ann
Arbor Civilian Defense Office for a
larger army of volunteer workers,
many women of the University have
volunteered their services to handle
fuel oil rationing and other local de-
fense posts.
A large number of the coeds have
agreed to take part in the city's war-
time activities and, under the direc-
tion of Miss Ethel McCormick of the
League, have registered on national
civilian defense forms supplied by
the local CDVO.
The task of keeping the students
informed onlocal needs for such ser-
vices as clerical workers, rationers,
stamp sale promoters and other jobs
has been assigned to Mrs. Robert
Angell of the volunteer staff of the
city office.
Josephine Fitzpatrick, '43, registers
the women students and classifies
them according to their various abil-
ities. Plans have been accepted to set
up a filing system in the League so
that when coeds are needed to help
with a certain project, volunteers with
the necessary training can be sum-
moned in a short time.

cheering cup will lose a little of its
cheer come next month.
The Liquor Control Commission re-
ported today its new Nov. 1 price

the high 70's to-the low 80's; although
there would be a few items of about
90 proof. The reason, he said, is to
lessen for competitive advantage the
rise in liquor costs incident to the
new federal alcohol tax, and to con-
serve- the supply ,of alcohol for bev-
erage manufacture.

Drawing on his personal knowledge
of war-time conditions in the United
States, Brown assured his hearers
that the American people are working
now "as never before to build up the
greatest military machine ever con-
"No, this is not a domestic election.
It will determine the future course of
America with redpect to the peace we
will win."
And of the post-war reconstruction
he asked to "hold back those who
would insist upon a peace- of ven-
