IFC NEWSPAPER A REALITY:
New Monthly Fraternity Paper
to Make Its Debut Next Week

Yanks Find Abandoned Ja pTanks in New Guinea

The 20-year ebb tide in fraternity
journalism will succumb to an igno-
minious end when the newest IFC
venture-a monthly fraternity news-
paper-chalks up its high water mark
in a campus debut next week.
Although it's only been an idea and
two editors during the last three
weeks in which the newspaper has
been in the making, Interfraternity
Council offices are now humming
with industry as the final touches are
being put on the four-page tabloid.
Jack Hooper, '44, who shares a co-
editorship with Jack Wiese, '44, ex-
pects the issue to come out a week
from next Friday.
Strictly an experimental issue to be
tried "for size" on campus readers, the
paper will contain news of fraternity
sports, fall pledging, the pledge ban-
quet, and the fraternity scrap drive.
Hooper also emphasized that the
last page will be devoted to the fra-
ternity men in armed service, while
another of the all-revealing stories
will be an advance article on the In-
terfraternity Ball, the details of which
have not yet been released.
Richie Rawdon, IFC junior staff
member, will also take his turn at.
journalism when he turns from his
current cheerleading activities to be-
come the fraternity-man's Walter
Winchell by writing a campus gossip
column.
Precedent for this paper is hardly
lacking, Co-Editor Wiese points out,
yfor Pete Wingate, I's hustling sec-
retary, has managed to unearth a
dusty issue of a 1920 fraternity news-
paper and from these near-antiquated
WPB To Ask
Dairy Goods
Rationing
WASHINGTON, Nov. 18. - (P) -
Faced with war demands beyond th'e
apparent ability of farmers to sup-
ply, the War Production Board's
foods requirements committee is ex-
pected soon to recommend civilian
rationing of cheese and butter fluid
milk in larger cities, and a curtail-
ment of manufacture of ice cream.
Sources close to the committee who
requested that they not be quoted by
name said such action appeared in-
evitable. They added that the Office
of Price Administration may be asked
to raise some ceiling prices to help
dairymen and processors meet ad-
vancing production costs.
Secretary of Agriculture Wickard
today told the WPB committee, which
he heads, that he did not believe
farmers can meet 1943 demands.
Dairy requirements of American and
Allied armed forces were said to have
increased 250 percent over this year.
Civilian demands were reported in-
creasing also, due to shortages of
meat and rising incomes.
Wickard, committee sources said,
estimated that next year's milk pro-
duction might fall short of require-
ments by 20,000,000,000 pounds.
Declaring dairymen face growing
shortages of labor, equipment, and
transportation facilities the Secretary
was said to have expressed the view
that production would do well to
match this year's record output of
120,000,000,000 pounds.
After outlining this situation, the
Secretary submitted a program in-
volving these proposals:
1. Ration fluid milk in some cities
to assure ample supplies for children,
invalids, and pregnant mothers.
2. Ration cheese as well as meats,
possibly cutting civilian supplies of
cheese approximately 40 percent.
3. Limit distribution of butter un-
til plans for rationing can be devel-
oped.
4. Limit ice cream manufacture to
about 75 percent of this year's output.

5. Revise price ceilings to increase
cheese, and possibly butter and evap-
orated milk prices.

International
Course Opens
Will Teach Students
To Govern Overseas
Future governors of occupied lands
will be intensively trained in a new
study course starting Monday in the
graduate school.
Graduates and persons with prac-
tical experience in law, industry, fin-
ance, public utilities, education, pub-
lic health, social welfare or engineer-
ing may enter the course directed by
Prof. Howard B. Calderwood of the
political science department.
Each student will specialize in one
country, learning its language and
pertinent details of its social customs,
government and economy. The course
will run two semesters.
At present instruction will be limi-
ted to Germany, the Low Countries
and countries on Germany's eastern
border. Opening Feb. 8 will be a more
comprehensive program in which Far
East training will be included.
Two differentiated programs have

having a degree or other qualifica-
tions in the various fields of study
and the second for those who require
refresher courses or basic preparation.
Plans for Blood
Bank Complete
Quota To Be Filled
Here Tomorrow
Expecting to fill its quota, the cam-
ous blood committee headed by Bud
Brandt, '44 announced last night
final plans for tomorrow's blood tak-
ing.
The campus committee has prom-
ised the American Red Cross 125
pints of blood per month from Uni-
versity students. This quota was ex-
ceeded last month when a substan-
tial waiting list was compiled.
Drawing upon fraternity men who
pledged their support to the blood
bapk during the summer semester
and all new volunteers tomorrow's
taking should be a success, Brandt
stated.'
Time schedules were prepared this
week so that all persons donating
blood could be assured, as far as pos-
sible, a convenient time for donation.
All parties concerned were in-
formed by post card and and irregu-
larities may be taken care of with
Bud Brandt in the Union Student
Offices this afternoon.
Juniors May Have
Pictures In 'Ensian
Second semester juniors will findi
that when the Michiganensian comes
mut next spring, they too will have a
glace between its covers-if they get
into action now.
Juniors who graduate next Septem-
ber will be given the opportunity to
have their pictures printed in the sec-
tion ordinarily featuring June gradu-

ates. By presenting their student
identification cards at The Daily, they
'nay buy a picture coupon which will
oay for a part of the photographer'sr
work as well as enable them to pur-
chase an 'Ensian for the lower price
of last week. This week the pricez
jumped but yearbook editors felt it
only fair to extend the lower rate to
second semester Juniors who decide
now to have their portraits included.
MUST COMPLETE RESALE
Persons who have not yet com-
pleted their transactions with Un-t
ion Football Ticket Resale Desk aret
asked to do so today and tomorrow
from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Union Stu-
dent Offices, it was announced byc
Dave Striffler, '44, student directorp
in charge.-

Allies Strike
at Nazis in
North Afriea
(ontinued from Page 1)
The advance is a great land, sea
and air movement stretching from
the Mediterranean coast far inland
to the south.
Under the protecting cover of the
RAF there have been no serious ship-
ping losses in the past two days de-
spite the presence of hordes of sub-
marines, and German planes based
on Sardinia and Sicily in the Medi-
terranean.
It was authoritatively stated here
that some of the most famous British
Hurricane and Spitfire squadrons
have been having a field day practi-
cally without loss in diving into
swarms of German Junker 88's and
87's.
Airdromes Packed with Fighters
The Germans have packed the air-
dromes at Tunis and Bizerte with
fighters and dive-bombers, but de-
spite this the U.S. Flying Fortresses
were understood to have returned
from their raid on Tunis without loss.
The same Fortress pilots who won
their spurs in raids over France car-
ried out the attack, cruising lazily
high over the naval base city with
plenty of time to pick out their pre-
cise targets on the air field.
At the same time RAF bombers
blasted military targets ahead of the
advancing ground troops.
Forces To Be Helpless
If the RAF and General Doolittle's
air force wrest control of the air over
Tunisia, the Axis ground troops will
be left helpless before the superior
American-British ground forces.
The communique also said that
German transport planes attempting
to land at a point on the Tunisian
coast were driven off by French
forces.
The parachutist exploit far inside
Tunisia was described in an Allied
headquarters communique on Radio
Morocco .as one of the most impor-
tant air-borne operations ever ac-
complished.
The 'chutists were dropped to "pre-
pare the way for Allied forces" al-
ready driving into Tunisia.

FUNDS MOUNT:
Phi Kappa Phi
Contributes t
Scholarsihp
The Bomber Scholarship is gaining
headway in its race for a $15,000 to-
tal in 1942-1943. Its biggest contribu-
tion to date is $500 from Phi Kappa
Phi, national honor society, which
raised its total this semester to $800.
While the decision of the Women's
League to turn over its ballroom to
the Committee on week-ends has
given the Bomber Scholarship its big-
gest boost, this plan has not yet got
under way. The Committee expects
a big help toward gaining its total
from the- League donation, as it does
from the proceeds of Interfraternity
Ball which the IFC Council an-
nounced will be added to the Com-
mittee's coffers.
Other contributors to the Bomber
Scholarship fund this semester have
been the Abe Lincoln Cooperative
House, Adams House, Allen-Rumsey
House, Alpha Delta Phi, Congress Co-
operative House, Lloyd House, Michi-
gan House, Phi Kappa Psi, Psi Up-
silon, Sigma Chi, Wenley House, and
the West Quadrangle Council.
The many campus organizations
that have added to the fund last
year are not being listed by the Com-
mittee unless new donations are made
this semester, in spite of the Com-
mittee's deep appreciation to those
groups for their assistance.
All the funds collected by the Com-
mittee toward their present goal of
$15,000 and their ultimate goal of
$100,000 will be invested in war
bonds, for the duration of the war.
After the war the money realized
from these bonds will be issued in
scholarship form for the assistance
of students of this university who
interrupted their education to serve
in the armed forces of the United
States and who return after the war
to finish their schooling.
GAME MOVIES TO BE SHOWN
Moving pictures of the Michigan-
Notre Dame football game, played
last week, will be presented at 7:30
p.m. Sunday in the Main Ballroom
of the Union.

American and Australian soldiers examine two Jap tanks found abandoned by their crews in New Guinea,
where Allied forces were reported to be closing in on the Jap base of Buna.

Students May
Become Army
Weather Men
'U' Seeks Candidates
to Begin Training as
Air Force Officers
Qualified student candidates are
being sought by the University to
begin training in January as Army
Air Force weather officers at one of
civ eenters throughout the United
States
To qualify, a student must have
two years of college training, includ-
ing differential and integral calculus
and a year of general physics, he
must be between 18 and 30 years old,
and must be a male citizen of the
United States.
Candidates will also be required to
pass a fairly rigid physical examina-
tion. If accepted they will be enlisted
in the Air Force as aviation cadets
on a non-flying status with regular
pay and allowances of about $140 a
month.
When they have satisfactorily com-
pleted the nine-month training course
they will be commissioned as second
lieutenants in the Air Force resgrves
and will either be assigned to duty
at Army air bases or to further train-
ing.
Prof. Ralph Belknap of the geol-
ogy department said the training will
prepare men as weather officers
whose chief duty will be forecasting
weather for aerial operations. Stu-
dents taking the special course, he
added, will receive training equiva-
lent to one-half and two-thirds of
what could be obtained in the con-
centration program for a bachelor's
degree.
Training will be given at Massa-
chusetts Institute of Technology, the
California Institute of Technology,
New York University, the University
of California, the University' of Chi-
cago and at Grand Rapids.
After receiving this training, Prof.
Belknap claims, students will have
an excellent background for further
work in any of the physical sciences
when the war is over.
Application blanks and further in-
formation are being distributed by
the War Information Center in An-
gell Hall.

Political Honeymoon.' Ended as
Kelly, Van Wagoner Break Up

LANSING, Nov. 18.- (P)-- The so-
called "political honeymoon" of Gov-
ernor Van Wagoner, a Democrat, and
Governor-elect Harry F. Kelly, a Re-
publican, has been broken by ."politi-
cal in-law trouble," their friends said
today.
Kelly, himself, gave substance to
the reports in an unsolicited state-
ment at a press conference, in which
he indicated he would see to it that
the paths of Van Wagoner and him-
self run separately for the balance of
the governor's term, which will expire
January 1.
Informants, who declined to be
quoted by name, said die-hards in the
two major political parties took ex-
ception to post-election expressions of
friendship by the two standard bear-

ers in the recent political campaign.
"It seemed too much like a political
honeymoon, and the boys balked at
it," said one of them. "The honeymoon
has run into political in-law trouble,
you might say."
Van Wagoner declined to comment
before leaving for Hubbard Lake on
a deer hunting trip, but Kelly at a
press conference declared without
elaboration:
"There must not be any question
that his (Van Wagoner's) term will
run to January 1.
"There will be .no joint proclama-
tion and things of that nature.
"There has been some confusion in
the minds of some people. He will
run that office until January 1, and
I want it clearly understood."
