American Soldiers Stationed in Action Zones in Southwest Pacific Region

Polish Veteran to Speak Friday

Joseph P. Junosza, director of the
Polish Information Center of the
Middle West, will give a University
lecture at 2 p. m. Friday in the Michi-
gan. Union Ballroom.
Recently arrived in the United
States from Poland and England, Ju-
nosza brings to American audiences
a vivid picture of the problems facing
the United Nations in their war
against Axis tyranny and aggression.
A veteran of the Polish-Bolshevik
War of 1918-20, he again saw service
in the volunteer brigade of Warsaw in

September, 1939. When the Russians
marched into Poland, Junosza re-
turned to bombed and flaming War-
saw where he worked as a laborer in
a railroad shop.
During his 13-month stay in War-
saw under German occupation, he
had an opportunity to see the German
"New Order" and its methods first
hand. After witnessing the mass exe-
cutions and inhuman persecutions, he
became a member of the underground
movement and participated actively
in anti-Hitler actions.

American soldiers are testing their guns and tanks in
the southwestern Pacific war theatre. Thousands of them
are stationed in this area where they are taking the offen-

New Nazi Gains
along Caucasus
Front Reported
Reds Take Initiative'
in Stalingrad Sector
MOSCOW, Nov. 1. (Sunday)-(P)-
The Germans made new gains yester-
day in their offensive across the Nal-
chik Plains at the foot of the Cauca-
sus Mountains, the Soviet midnight
communique said today, but the Red
Army seized the initiative inside Sta-
lingrad and won new successes north-
west of the Volga city and on the
Black Sea front.,.
The fact that the Russians had
gone over to the offeusive in Stalin-
grad was indicated by a statement in
the communique that they had fought
"battles to improve their ,positions"
after beating off a number of German
The midnight communique said
that about a battalion of German in-
fantry had been wiped out in Stalin-
grad and that ten tanks and five
blockhouses had been destroyed.
Northwest of Stalingrad the Russians
were said to have strengthened their
positions and occupied a German
blockhouse after killing about two
platoons of infantry.
On the Black front, northeast of
Tuapse, the Russians "gained some
ground," the communique said, add-
ing that at one point Soviet units had
crossed a stream "and hurled the
Germans out of their positions."
The main battleground, however,
appeared to be shifting to the Nalchik
Plateau, deep in the Caucasus, where
the Germans were trying desperately
to reach the approaches to the Geor-
gian military highway leading across
the Caucasus Mountains.
The communique said the Germans
attacked at one point with large in-
fantry forces, supported by forty
tanks and aircraft. The Russians re-
pulsed a number of attacks here, kill-
ing about 600 enemy men, but late in
the day the Germans "broke into the
outskirts of a populated place."
In the Nalchik sector where the
enemy had shifted planes and men
from the Siege of Stalingrad, the out-
numbered Russians said their lines
held despite repeated attacks.

ODT Warns
DETROIT, Oct. 31.- (P)-- Michi-
gan faces partial paralysis of its com-
mercial motor transport system Nov.
15, an Office of Defense Transporta-
tion official warned tonight, unless
operators take immediate steps . to
obtain certificates of war necessity
for their vehicles.
Leslie Patterson, district ODT man-
ager, said that "after Nov. 15 no com-
mercial motor vehicle in the nation
may lawfully be operated without a
valid certificate of war necessity,"
adding that the number of Michigan
applications to the central ODT mail-
ing office so far is "dangerously
"Without this certificate," Patter-
son said, "it will be impossible to ob-
tain gasoline, tires or parts for any
such vehicle, and from the looks of
reports today on Michigan, it appears
the state's commercial motor trans-
port is due for near breakdown unless
operators wake up at once to this
I fact."

ERS, who spend the better
part of their time arguing
with the night editor that
the front page is the sports
page, got their opportunity
this week following the de-
cision on the Michigan-
Minnesota game . . . The
final score, 16-14, favor of
Minnesota, was decided by
a- field goal four seconds
before half-time at Min-
neapolis last Saturday . .
. Big squabble arose when
the field clock stopped and
the Minnesota team had
well over four minutes to
decide and kick the game-
winning field goal.


Students Try Hand at Farming

try the play in their own
living rooms to see if it

onds . . . Apparently Ma-
jor Griffith, commissioner
of the Western Conference,
didn't try it in his living1

minated Wednesday when

that the 16-14 count would

travel 60 miles by truck to
Mount Clemens to help
