MORE THAN 100 Manpower Corps men got up Sunday morn-
ing to collect scrap and before they knocked off for the day they had
salvaged more than 16,000 pounds of heavy metal. This pneumatic
drill crew helped dig up 3,000 pounds of old railroad tracks.

Navy Officer
Blasts at II'U
War Policies
Charges Answered
By University Official
The University of Michigan's oft-
criticized war policy was bitterly as-
sailed before 4,000 Michigan State
College students ysterday as a U.S.
Navy officer charged in East Lansing
that U. of M. students "don't seem to
know a war is going on yet."
The Naval officer, Lieut. John
Howard, a member of a joint Pro-
curement Committee which visited
the University last month, was re-
ported by the Associated Press as
asserting that U. of M. men could
profit by several weeks of "indoctri-
nation" in war spirit. He said that the
State rally "dwarfed" the similar pro--
gram here.
Tibbetts Counters Charges
His charges were countered with
facts and figures offered by Clark
Tibbetts, secretary of the University
War Board, here last night
Speaking of the mass meeting held
here last month, Tibbetts said: "We
were congratulated by the Chicago
Procurement Committee and the
Michigan Procurement Committee on
the number attending and the inter-
est shown."
"We were told that it was the lar-
gest meeting up to that time and that;
the Committee was very pleased. They
found our system of information so
complete they feltther" wasn't any-
thing iicy could say."
Republicans Expect Sweep
"The fact that 4,000 Michigan State
stuIdents had to take time out from
their studies and campus war work
to attend a mass meeting to learn
about rnsted reserve programs could,
be an irdication of only one thz.g:,
that tney had not been completely,
informed up to that timi."
Without Michigan State's compul-
sory programs 1,600 men, about 25
per cent of the male studen; body,
are enlisted in the ROTC and the'
NROTC here, Tibbetts said.
"Ever since the middle of the sum-
mer there has been a continual flow
of enlistments and the number has
increased since school started," he
said.
Drafted Labor
Asked by Hil
Guess Work System
Lack Coordination'
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2.- ()- A
new demand for a compulsory man-
power mobilization program came to-
day from Senator Hill (Dem.-Ala.)
after a priest and physician sketched
for a Senate Labor Committee a pic-
ture of a nation striving for utiliza-
tion of its human resources under a
"guess work" system lacking coordi-
nation and authority.
The appeal of patriotism and the
pressure of war time public opinion-
particularly in smaller cities-were
blamed by Dr. Frank Leahy, chairman
of the government's Central Board
of Procurement and Assignment for
the Medical Profession, for a shortage
of doctors in some sections of the
country.
In many areas too many doctors'
were volunteering, he said. In order
to keep them in their home commu-
nity, "there should be some way
whereby responsibility for the deci-
sion would be taken off the individual
physician."
DRUIDS
Druids, sons of magic
Foretellers of the future,
Judges-very knowing, wise,-

The fires in the stonehenge -
Are set alight,
With flames to heaven raised;
Look upon thy awenyds,
Called from out they might court-
The uninformed who would seek
thy light.
Hence to the oak grove,
There to test
Their unworthiness.
With eyes to heaven raised,
Invoke a blessing from the skies,
Perpetuate thy heroic deeds-
Keep ever bright

The main drive of a three-pronged Nazi onslaught is aimed at

Nalchik, the Nazis claim to have advanced as far as Alagir. A fierce
German counter-attack has begun at Stalingrad, while the German
attack on Tuapse has been pushed back slightly, according to Russian
reports.

Associated Press Correspondent
MOSCOW, Nov. 3 (Tuesday).-The
Germans pushed on past the little
plateau town of Nalchik, at the foot
of the lofty Caucasus Mountains,
Monday in their drive toward the,
trans-Caucasus military highway, but
the Red Army made new gains in
Stalingrad; the Soviet midnight com-
munique said today.
The Russians acknowledged that
they had been forced to evacuate
Nalchik, 60 miles by air from the
terminus of the strategic road which
leads across the 18,000-foot range
to Tiflis and the great Russian oil
fields beyond the mountain barrier.
(The German High Command
claimed the occupation of Nalchik
last Thursday and yesterday said the
Germans had taken the town of Al-
agir, about 25. miles by air and 45
miles by road from Ordzhonikidze,
where the military highway starts.)

Marriages In
Wartime Hit
By Sociologist
Before 185 members of the Parent
Education Institute, Dr. Henry A.
Bowman, sociologist of Stephens Col-
lege declared yesterday 'that the
"grab-it-avow-or-y'ou-gnay-Iever-get-
it" attitude towards marriage has
created a very grave problem in this
war era.
Dr. Bowman placed much of the
blame for this type of morals upon
the women of the country who think
of marriage as a "feminine counter-
part of selective service." They believe
that this should be their work in the
war and it is through this that they
will build up morale.
"Although women are sincere in
this belief," Dr. Bowman asserted,
"they do not realize that marriage is
apt to constitute a pull toward home
for the service men and to the degree
to which it does this makes him less
single-minded in the important bus-
iness of winning the war."'
Dr. Bowman contended that women
must understand what are the true
values of a lasting marriage, and it
is only through this realization that
the overwhelming number of wed-
dings can be stopped. He cited the
marriage and divorce rate of the last
war and from the amount of the mar-
riages at the present time predicted
that the post-war divorce rate would
be just as high as it was at the end of
the first World War.
Dr. Bowman recommended that
young people should wait a year or
two longer before they marry, be-
cause at that time we will have a bet-
ter idea of when the war is apt to end.
"Young people cannot be expected
to wait for years before they marry,"
Dr. Bowman said, "but certainly
nothing would be lost by waiting that
long.":
Journalists To Debate

que said.
In this area, the communique add-
ed, the Germans attacked with more
than 100 tanks, accompanied by auto-

planes and the Russians were forced
to wit~hdraw again "under pressure of
numerically superior forces."' "Eleven
German tanks were destroyed.
A HANDICAP:

By The Associated Press
GENERAL MacARTHUR's HEAD-
QUARTERS, Australia, Nov. 3.
(Tuesday)- Allied ground forces
have captured Kokoda, the Japa-
nese base on the trail from Buna to
Port Moresby, the Allied Command
announced today.
Allied bombers, continuing their
vigorous assault on the enemy, re-
pulsed a Japanese convoy which
apparently was attempting to land
men and supplies at Buna on the
northeast coast of New Guinea.
Announcement of the capture of
Kokoda came only three days after
Australian jungle fighters took
Isurava, sitmiles up in the moun-
tains from Kokoda. It was from
Kokoda that the Japanese launched
their drive through the Owen Stan-
ley Mountains and which carried
through the gap in the mountains
to within 32 miles of Port Moresby.
A strong force of Allied medium
bombers attacked the Japanese-
held town of Dillio n the north
coast of Portuguese Timor, an Is-
land northwest of Australia.
"The destruction was heavy," the
communique said.
Still other bombers attacked en-
emy installations in the village of
Bononaro, setting fire to barracks
and other buildings and strafing
enemy personnel ... all our planes
returned.

Japs Retreat in Solomons
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2.- A slow
Japanese retreat on Guadalcanal Is-
land was announced today by the
Navy, together with word that Ameri-
can submarines had sunk seven more
enemy ships in the -far Pacific.
The Japanese withdrawal began
yesterday (Solomon Island time) af-
ter the Americans unleashed a bat-
tering assault by dive bombers, Flying
Fortresses, fighting planes and a
small force of Marines. The Marines
crossed the Matinikau River, attacked
to the westward, and one wave of the
Devil-Dogs "made an advance of two
miles with comparatively few casual-
ties," a communique said.
While Flying Fortresses supported
this thrust by hammering the with-
drawing foe, American fighter planes
and dive bombers strafed and blasted
at enemy positions throughout the
day.
"Enemy artillery, fire was silence,"
the Navy said.
During the same day, Naval fight-
ing planes, Grumman "Wildcats,"
carried the attack to the Japanese
base at Rekata Bay. They strafed
buildings, started a fire and destroyed
five enemy planes on the beach.
Heavy anti - aircraft fire damaged
some of the "Wildcats," but all planes
returned safely.
Summarizing activities for the day
and a half which preceded these de-
velopments, the Navy said American
aircraft made four attacks on Japa-
nese positions on Guadalcanal,
