Frenchmen To
Resist Allies
(Oi Qnt'Anue4 frQrn P ave ij
German Foreign Minister Joac ..!
Von Ribbentrop and Italian Foreign
Minister Count Galeazzo Ciano were
reported to have sat in on one of the
talks Laval had with Hitler.
In typical Hitlerian style, the
Reichsfuehrer told the French of the
occupation of all of France even as
his troops were striking down on the
maritimes of Southern France and
as the Italians were extending their
own penetration of France, which had
gone but a few kilometers when it
was stopped by the cessation of hos-
itilities soon after they joined the vic-
torious Germans in June, 1940.
Hitler's first message today was
addressed to "Frenchmen, 'officers
and men of the French Army," and
told them the Germans had known
for 24 hours of an Allied intention to'
strike across the Mediterranean at
Southern France and Corsica.
Hitler said that his "single aim" in
crossing the line into Vichy territory
was to forestall an Allied invasion
known to be in the making.

University Band to Play
at Notre Dame Game
Prof. William D. Revelli announced
yesterday that after much difficulty
in arranging transportation facilities,
the University Band will make one
of its few trips of the year and will
perform at the Notre Dame game
Leaving Ann Arbor early Saturday
morning, for an action-packed day,
the Band will go to Niles by train and
then change to busses which will take
them directly to South Bend.
There, at the request of local alum-
ni, they will march through the
streets of the city -in a pre-game pa-
Mexican Movie,
Opens Tonight
'Night of the Mayas'
Will Be Presented
"Night of the Mayas" (La Noche de
los Mayas), the second film .in the
Art Cinema League series will open at
8:15 p. m. today in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre and will run
through Saturday.
Two short features will be shown in
conjunction with this picture. One of
these will be a new travelogue enti-
tled "Heart of Mexico" and the other
will be a cartoon. Tickets can be pur-
chased at the box office of the Men-
delssohn Theatre from 10 a. m. to the
beginning of the program.
The scenes of "Night of the Mayas"
are laid deep in the forests of Yuca-
tan, in the peaceful Mayan village of
Yuyumil. There in primitive dignity
dwell the descendants of what was
once a great empire. This film depicts
a Mayan love story, based upon au-
thentic native legends.
The Art Cinema League will also
present the second group of films in
the "Rise of American Film" series at
7 p. m. and 9 p. m. Sunday in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. Tickets
may be purchased either for this
single performance or for the entire
series. The pictures which will be
shown in this group were produced
between 1912 and 1917.

Kill or Be Killed,
McNair Tells
Ground Forces
(Continued from Page 1)
Modern war uses many weapons,
said McNair, but men survive despite
them, and victory can be achieved
over a determined enemy only by
close combat. Noting that in a recent
group of.30,000 voluntary enlistments
only five per cent wanted service in
the infantry or the armored force, the
arms of close combat, he asked if this
meant "that our soldiers prefer the
more genteel forms of warfare."
"If so," he said, "the sooner we
change such preferences, the better
for our country. There is no doubt
that Americans can and will fight
when aroused; they are brave in bat-
tle. You are going to get killing mad
eventually; why not now, while you
have time to learn thoroughly the art
of killing?"
Surveys of the Army, said McNair,
disclosed that one-fourth of the men
wanted to fight, one-half of those in
combat divisions expected to fight,
one-half the Army expected the war
to end in two years.
"But your reason must tell you,"
he said, "that it will end only when
you finish it. If you intend to do the
job in two years, make yourselves
into fighting devils now, not later."
McNair said the superb training
and combat experience of the Ger-
mans and Japanese made them for-
midable enemies. Training of the
American forces has been good, and
"you are unsurpassed as potential
soldiers,"'he said.
While the American ground forces
"have not yet reached the peerless
class," McNair said the 1942 Army
was much better than last year's in
discipline, proficiency, stamina, in-
terest and devotion.
The results of an IFC forum on
rushing rules will be presented at the
regular fraternity president's meet-
ing at 6:15 p. m. tomorrow at Theta

"Tomorrow's going to be a mighty
unlucky Friday the 13th for those
politically - minded engineers who
haven't turned in their candidacy
petitions for the Engineering Council
election," Bud Burgess, '44E, election
chairman, reported yesterday.
These petitions, he said, are due
complete before noon tomorrow at
the Dean's office, 255 West Engineer-
ing Building, in order to have the
candidate's name on the election bal-
Already the engineering college is
beginning to hum with election furor,
the chairman reported, and several
engineers have announced their can-
didacy for the six representative posts
on the Council.
Two men will be elected from each
of the freshman, sophomore, and
junior classes. The one in each class
receiving the highest vote will serve
for the remainder of his college ca-
veer, while those getting the second
highest total of votes will serve only
one year. Voting will be preferential.
Burgess also announced that all
candidates intending to leave here
before tomorrow night to attend the
Michigan-Notre Dame game must

other candidates must have their pic-

New Technic
Will Be Put on
Sale Monday
Except for one small cut of an
acidizing process, expected daily, the
new Michigan Technic is all ready
to go to press, Editor Bill Hutcherson,
'43E, said yesterday.
The November issue, on sale Mon-
day in the Engineering Arch, will
feature articles by four eminent
Michigan engineers, undergraduates
and alumni; and will be further en-
hanced by short "Autobiographies"
of the authors, in accordance with
Technic's new policy for the year.
Editor Hutcherson promises that
Blaine Newman's "Polaroid" will be
especially interesting. "Acid Control
of Oil Flow," by John G. Standt, '31E,
is the second feature story, while
"Cooperation- Production-Aircraft,"
by Jack T. Gray, '39E, and "Theory
of Limit Design," by Robert Hay,
'43E, complete the list of attractions.
A special Technic feature appear-
ing for the first time in this issue
will be a "Problem in Ethics," with
a five-dollar prize attached for the
engineer who submits the best solu-
The magazine will also contain its
regular sections, Technic Reflects,
Explores, and Presents.

People ask us ,- "Isn't it possible to heat my whole house
with electricity? Why not small heaters in every room, or
an electric furnace in the basement?"
In a nutshell, the answer is this: Electric heat is prac-
tical in a SMALL SPACE (such as a bathroom) for a
SHORT TIME (one or two hours' use per day). But at
present it is not economical for heating for long periods
or for large rooms. And it is NOT an economical means
of providing additional heat to raise the temperature
from 65 to 70 degrees throughout your entire house.
There are several reasons why this is so.
First, electric heat is highly refined heat made from
coal, and a great deal of heat is lost in the process. If you
had 5 tons of coal to turn into electric heat, the heat of
4 tons of coal would be lost in the change-over, and the
heat equivalent of only ONE TON would be delivered to
your home. The most efficient electric power plants today
can extract in the form of refined electric heat about
20 per cent of the heat originally in the coal. But if you
burn the coal in your furnace, you can extract 50 to 60
per cent of its crude heat in useful warmth.
Second, electricity must be made the instant it is being
used and on cold days each home would require about
80 times as much as it uses normally. The extra power
plant equipment to produce enough electricity to heat
houses on a cold day would be partly idle on a warmer
day; and it would be completely idle all summer. But the
expense would continue the year round, and to cover this
all-year expense, the cost of electricity would be high
