LEADERS WOULD BE TAKEN:
Admittance of Best High School
Students to College Is Attacked
Willamette River Floods Oregon Mill
TRanlding the plan to admit seniors
in high school to college as untimely
and narrowly considered, an article
by Dr. George E. Carrothers, Bureau
in Cooperation with Other Institu-
tions, will be published in the Secon-
dary School Principals' Bulletin.
The article was originally a letter
to Alexander J. Stoddard, chairman
of the Educational Policies Commis-
sion, who originated the plan. It
chargessthat colleges are angling for
the most capable students, who are
needed to give leadership to the senior
year in high school.
Dr. Carrothers stated that the sec-
ondary schools are making more pro-
visions than colleges to meet the
emergency needs of the students.
"Colleges have demanded better pre-
pared students from the high schools.
Now these colleges, some of them, are
suddenly changing their statements
concerning the kind of material need-
ed in the freshman year."
"High school teachers are much

The lectures will be given weekly,
each Tuesday, for the next three
weeks, on Jan. 12, 19 and 27, under
sponsorship of the Ann Arbor Health
Department and the Health Service.
Food handling in wartime assumes
great importance as the spread of
epidemicdiseases must be prevented,
Melbourne Murphy, Health Service
sanitarian, said yesterday. Murphy
emphasized the imperative need to
keep war workers and soldiers on the
job by preventing epidemics.
Today's lecture, "Public Enemies,"
will concern the importance of bac-
teria and communicable disease
spread through food handling. Pro-
tection will be discussed on Tuesday
and the problem of restaurant sani-
tation will be analyzed on Jan. 19.
The concluding lecture on Jan. 27
will be on personal sanitation.
Transportation Club to
See.Movies of Railroad
Mr. C. F. Graves, of the Michigan
Central Railroads, will show railroad
photos to the Transportation Club at
7:45 p.m. tomorrow in the Transpor-
tation Library, East Engineering
Photos of the recent Roundhouse
fire in Detroit involving damage to
all locomotives are included in

lives to the emergency problems than
are college professors. The strain on
immature youth away from home in
this emergency would be disastrous in
altogether too many instances."
Dr. Carrothers criticized the Edu-
cational Policies Commission saying
that fine influence built up by the
commission seems about to be used by
what must be a special group for indi-
vidual, propagandistic purposes.
Jap Plan to
(Continued from Page 1)
As presented in chronological fash-
ion by the White Book, which cov-
ered ten years of American diplomacy
preceding Pearl Harbor, here is how
the matter developed:
As early as January 27, 1941, this
government had been warned specif-
ically by Ambassador Joseph C. Grew
at Tokyo that the Japanese had plans
for a surprise mass attack on Pearl
Harbor in case of "trouble" with the

tion of peace in the Pacific-while

itary and naval machine in gear'for
On August 8 Japanese Ambassador
Kichisabura Nomura inquired of Sec-
retary Hull whether it might be pos-
sible to arrange a meeting of Presi-
dent Roosevelt and Premier Prince
Konoye to discuss means of adjust-
ing relations between the two coun-
tries. A few days later the ambassa-
dor was advised that before there was
a meeting of the two heads of govern-
ment it would be helpful if the Japa-
nese government furnished a clearer
statement of its attitude and plans.
The ambassador, while in confer-
ence with Hull, handed him a formal
document setting forth the views of
the government and making further
references to the proposed meeting
between the President and Prince

Michigan students will have the
opportunity of having their finger-
prints taken on campus tomorrow and

Heartened by last month's record1

During December's record drive, the
East Quadrangle provided half of the
total donors needed to fill -the 250
pint quota. Tyler House, through the
efforts of its president, Aaron Fried-
man, '43E, enlisted 28 men for the
drive. This is believed to be a record
for Residence Halls'on campus..
The American Red Cross is proud
of the University record of coopera-
tion in blood drives and expects suc-
cess of this current campaign, accord-
ing to Jennings.
All blood is directed to American
armed forces for emergency use all
over the world. The Red Cross reports
Water Glass Brigade
Puts Out Jordan Fire
Jordan Hall had a fire Sunday, but
don't get excited.
Maybe the fact that it was ex-
tinguished by a female brigade that
passed water glasses along a line from
the drinking fountain gives you an
idea of the proportions.
Unsurprisingly enough, women
screamed and somebody called the
fire department. The fire laddies had
trouble with the elevator and arrived
