British Reportv
Will Be Studied
In Radio Course
Wartime Radio Programs, a new
course in the speech department, will
give students an unusual opportunity
to study radio as a military weapon
by examining confidential reports o1
the British Intelligence Service.
Prof. Waldo M. Abbot, who will
offer the course as Speech 157, has
undertaken considerable investiga-
tion to prepare the course.
"I have been very fortunate," state
Professor Abbot, "in having had ac-
cess to the confidential research
made by the British Intelligence Ser-
vice (1940, 1941, 1942) on the use o1
radio by the Germans in advance o1
their military moves."
Censorship Study
The aspect of radio as a military
weapon will be studied furthe
through reports of censorship prac-
tices in the United States.
In a second aspect Speech 157 wil
deal with radio as a public relation

medium. Students will be given prac-
tical experience in writing, produc-
ing and presenting programs aftei
studying scripts and transcriptions
The British Broadcasting Corpora
tion has offered to provide Professor
Abbot with transcriptions of theil
radio programs for class criticism
and radio programs from Navy Train
ing Stations will be examined. The
United States Office of the Coordina-
tor of Inter-American Affairs ha.
guaranteed to furnish scripts to be
produced by University students ovei
the facilities of WJR, Detroit.

150 Japanese in a low level attack n
enemy installations at Kiska Island.
A strong force of Army bombers
and pursuit planes, joined by aircraft
of the Royal Canadian Air. Force,
carried out the attack on enemy shore
installations and ships at Kiska last
Friday. strafing two submarines, de-
stroying six fighter seaplanes on the
water, and shooting down a seventh.
Two transports, or cargo ships,
were found in the harbor, said a
Navy communique, and direct bomub
hits started fires on one of them.
When last seen, the vessel, listing
badly, had been beached.'
The attack was the second aerial'

sweep against Kiska in as many days.
A smaller force of Army heavy
bombers, said the communique, had
attacked the enemy installations
Thursday, but apparently this attack
was made from a high altitude, since
the results were not ob:;erved.
The direct hits on the transport
brought to 33 the total of Japanese
vessels sunk or damaged by combined
Army-Navy operations in the Aleu-
tians since the islands became an
active warzone with the enemy raid
on Dutch Harbor June 3, the day be-
fore the Battle of Midway started.
