Planes Raid All Night
Edward Kennedy, Associated Press
Correspondent at an advanced Allied
air base, said pilots returning at dawn
from an all-night blasting of the en-
emy's air bases and concentrations
saw the British forces already pour-
ing through a gap they had made in
the German and Italian lines.
It was evident, however, that the
heavy fighting between tanks and
anti-tank guns had not yet been
joined, for Rommel's tanks were seen
rushing up to meet the attack.
The eighth army, bigger and better
equipped than ever before, thanks to
the pouring in of American material
and manpower, attacked after the
heaviest artillery barrage ever seen in
the desert, he said. ,
Americans May Be Fighting
There was no definite word yet that
American troops actually were par-
ticipating, but American tank crews
were known to have been in readiness
for some time after initial combat ex-
perience, and it was not likely that
they would be left out of a battle in
which all available strength must be
made to count.
The Army began its drive with the
support of the strong American, Brit-
ish and Allied air forces which for the
past two months have waged the fier-
cest and most protracted air offensive
in the history of desert fighting with
their day and night assaults on Rom-
mel's sea and land transport and

Thirty-nine volunteers, sent out to
a Milani farm yesterday by the Man-'
power Mobilization Corps, hit a new
high in defense farm work by har-
vesting 32 tons of beets.
That is the equivalent of 9,600
pounds of sugar. Sixteen men left
the Michigan Union at 8 a.m. yes-
terday and an additional squad of
23 left at noon. The afternoon shift
was transferred from apple-picking
to beet-topping because of F'riday
night's heavy frost.
Here are the men:
Bruce Dalton, Robert King, Bob
Long, Louis Zeite, Bill Permenter,
Ed Gillette, Bob Wiener, Henry
Freedman, Dave Kyllonen, Bill
Healy, Clifford Wylie, Glen Cowing,

Nine men who were signed upto

day to pick them up broke down.

EAST LANSING, Mich., Oct. 24.-
(P)- The Michigan Defense Council
today called on citizens of the state
to observe a "meatless" day each
week, and jogged the federal govern-
ment's elbow to institute rationing of
coffee and tea.
On the motion of President John
A. Hannah of Michigan State College,
a council member, the Council in-
structed its staff to ask Governor Van
Wagoner to order a "meatless" day
and for the staff to work out details
of such a program.
Hannah said such a meat conserva-
tion move was suggested by Arthur H.
Sarvis, State Rationing Administra-
tor, and was supported by M. S. C.
agricultural experts.
The Council, accepting the sugges-
tion of Mrs. Ida A. Kleinman of De-
troit, chairman of its consumer advi-
sory committee, asked federal officials
"how soon" rationing of tea and cof-
fee can be expected and asserted that
if a survey showed rationing were
needed and that federal action were
unnecessarily delayed the state then
should institute its own rationing
under order of the governor.
Prof. George A. Brown, head of the
M. S. C. animal husbandry depart-
ment, told the Council that United]
States meat stocks were at their high-
est point in history but that excessive
demands of the armed forces, lend
lease and well stuffed American pock-
etbooks were creating a shortage.
Brown warned that any "meatless"
day program must make it clear to
the farmers that there would actually
be no less demand for meat and that
they should not become frightened

into reducing production. There is far
more demand than the farmers now
can meet, he said.
Lt. Col. Harold A. Furlong, Council
administrator, said details of the meat
conservation move would not be set
up until two of his advisors returned
from a national meeting in St. Louis,
Mo., where similar problems were be-
ing discussed.
Furlong said the Food Require-
ments Committee of the War Produc-
tion Board had ordered Michigan's
new "neighborhood war club" system
into action starting Nov. 23 to preach
the need for meat conservation.
"Block leaders" will be trained the
week of Nov. 16, he said.
Fuller Will Speak
At Avukah Meeting
Prof. Richard Fuller of the sociol-
ogy department will speak on "Anti-
Semitism and Fascism" at 8 p.m.
today at the Hillel Foundation.
The lecture is sponsored by Avu-
kah, student Zionist organization.
It will be followed by an informal
question and discussion period.
The meeting will be open to the
public and there will be no admis-
sion charge. Refreshments will be

ence department wiji address a meet-
