gang Kraus, of the political science
department, will debate the question
of Indian independence inha forum at
8:30 p.m. today at the Hillel Founda-
Mrs. Thivi, a graduate student from
India, will speak on "Independence
for India Now," while Dr. Kraus, who
is new to the faculty this year, will
maintain that India should not be
granted freedom until after the war.
The forum is the sixth in a series
of Friday evening discussions spon-
sored weekly by Hillel. The meetings
are open to the public and there is no
charge for admission. Refreshments
will be served.
"The Rochdale Principles and the
War" will be the topic of an all-
cooperative forum to be held at
5:30 p.m. Sunday at the Robert
Owen Cooperative House.
The discussion, intended to clari-
fy and re-evaluate the Rochdale

House, moderator.
Four speakers, Betty Schaul, of
the Pickerill House; Dave Tyner,
Guild House; Jerry Fleemans, Con-
gress House; and Isadore Singer,
of Michigan House, all '43, will pre-
sent the outstanding conflicting
viewpoints which will be thrown to
the floor for discussion. Ann Fagan,
45, of the Lester Co-op will present
a background sketch of the atti-
tudes of world cooperatives in the
past and in the present.
All co-op members and others in-
terested are invited to attend the

tion, will hold a communal luncheon
for all members at 12:30 p.m. tomor-
row at the Hillel Foundation.

semester will be completed. All chair-
men must be prepared to report or to
provide a substitute.

Ex-PEM Delinquents?

Educators Meet
New Demand
for Teachers
Curriculum Additions
Will Aid Elementary
School Shortage
A threatened shortage of 3,000 ele-
mentary school teachers is being an-
swered by the University's education
school through two additions to its
regular program.
With courses in directed teaching
and elementary-school methods, the
Elementary Education program, un-
der the direction of Dr. W. C. Olson,
is expanding to meet the new de-
mand. Both these courses originated
here for the summer session, after a
reconsideration of school needs.
Through the new five-hour course
in directed teaching, a limited num-
ber of students will be able to do their
practice and supervisory work in Ann
Arbor. Before this summer all stu-
dent teachers in elementary educa-
tion work had to go to Michigan
State Normal School, Wayne Univer-
sity and other schools for a semester
of work. The course consists of su-
pervised participation in classroom
work with the children of the Uni-
versity elementary, school. With the
new addition to the nursery school
this includes about 50 children, with
14 student teachers working with
them each semester.
The course in elementary school
methods, also a five hour course, in-
volves the cooperation of eleven fac-
ulty members, each representing a
field of interest in the preparation of
teachers. One morning a week is
spent in observation in the laboratory
school here or in neighboring ele-
mentary schools.
These courses take in not only the
demand for teachers in nursery and
elementary schools, but also consider
the needs in the fields of child care
in defense areas.'

LONDON, Nov. 19.-(,)-The turn
of the tide for the United Nations
from North Africa to the Solomons,
plus Adolf Hitler's strategic errors
and party favoritisms, were reported
here today to have led a strong
group of dissident German generals
into a subversive movement to sacri-
fice the Fuehrer and the Nazis and
gain a peace favorable to their own
The Junta, reputedly led by Field
Marshal General Walther Von Brau-
chitsch and Field Marshal General
Fedor Von Bock, both of whom were
ousted from command by Hitler, is
said by a responsible foreign diplo-
matic sources here to have begun
"isolation" of the Fuehrer.
Provoke Hitler's Ire
Feelers are being put out by the
generals to determine how the United
Nations would respond to an offer of

peace from a "de-Nazified" Germany,
the report declares, the Junta hav-
ing become convinced that it is im-
possible for the Axis to win the war.
The foreign diplomatic source, who
cannot be further identified but who
said he believed his information was
reliable, said that some members of
the military clique were "deliberately
provoking Hitler's ire" so as to be
dismissed or relegated from places of
responsibility in order to be able to
blame him (Hitler) for the disasters
last winter in Russia.
Dissenter List Swells
Von Brauchitsch was dismissed as
army commander-in-chief last win-
ter after counseling against the win-
ter campaign against Moscow. Von
Bock was fired in the midst of the
drive against Stalingrad this fall.
Also reported to be members of the
Junta were Gen. Franz Halder, Gen.
Erich Von Mannstein, Field Marshal
Gen. Karl Rudolf Gerd Von Rund-
stedt and Gen. Johannes Blaskowitz.
All were said to be dissatisfied with
Hitler's "intuition" and with his
steady Nazification of the army and
high command.
Marshal Erwin Rommel's defeat in
North Africa was said to have been
attributed by the officer group to
the fact that Hitler did not take ear-
lier steps to reinforce him from the
Russian front.
The officers regarded the Fuehrer's
address of Nov. 8, in which he de-
clared he would never give up; as
strongly defeatist, the informant
said, and strengthened their deter-
mination to make a "deal" for them-
selves. They were, said also to have
been influenced by the steady decline
of civilian morale.
