Women Still Needed in Blood
Drive as Men Fill Their Quota

Stilwell Decorates Chenault

Though yesterday's registration for
the blood bank brought the number
of donors within 20 of the January
quota, registrations will continue
through today, according to Warner
Jennings, '45, of the blood commit-
Coupled with this was the an-
nouncement that because the number
of women donors was short of the
necessary amount, the Union would
take over all registration today. Reg-
istration will take place from 3 to
5:30 p.m. in the Union lobby.
Prescott House of the East Quad-
rangle now stands at the top of the
list of residence halls supplying don-
ors. Their 30 man contribution in yes-.
terday's registration is the highest
number reported thus far in any blood
bank held on campus.
"Cooperation of the student body
has been exceptionally good," de-
clared Jennings, "and we expect to-
day's registration to completely fill
our quota."
Actual blood taking will be con-
ducted next Tuesday and Wednesday
in the Women's Athletic Building. All
vrork at that time will be handled by
the American Red Cross.
Blood donors are cautioned to keep
their assigned appointments during
the taking. Appointments were made
to facilitate operations, and Jennings
asks that they be adhered to.
Blood obtained from civilian dona-
tions is directed to American armed
forces for use all over the world.
To date the University has par-
ticipated in four blood campaigns.
This is the fifth in as many months.
NEW YORK, Jan. 7.- (P)- The
Berlin radio quoted the German naval
high command tonight as announcing
for the first time the existence of
Nazi "tanker submarines" which it
said were able to refuel and repair its
tU-boat fleet "everywhere in the oper-
ations area."

400 pints of blood have already been'
donated by students. The addition of
the current quota will make the Uni-
versity one of the leading blood con-
tributors among universities all over
the nation.

Powers Asked
for Governor
Kelly Explains Opening
Message to Legislaturel
LANSING, Jan. 7. -- (/P) - Broad
powers to commandeer private prop-i
erty in event of war emergency, to
suspend state laws and, by proclama-
tion, issue orders having effect of
law, would be vested in the governor
under terms of "model" legislation
proposed by the Council of State
Governor Kelly, whose message to
the Legislature declared "emergency
powers should be granted to the ex-
3cutive" and announced the council's
proposed laws would be submitted for
the Legislature's consideration, elab-
orated today:
"Deliberately, I refrained from
making any specific request. I asked
merely for emergency powers. Should
enemy action strikedthis state, things
would have to be done without loss
of time. I shall leave it to the Legis-
lature to determine what these pow-
ers should be. That is its function,
and I respect its rights.
"I am not looking for power merely
for the sake of swinging it. I don't
view myself as the great power. But
it is my belief that I should be. free
to actto save life and suffering if it
became necessary to evacuate the
people from some endangered or at-
tacked area, and arrange to care for
them and feed them."

The Axis powers knew that they
must win the war in 1942-or even-

to tell you that our enemies did not

Japanese strength in ships and

American strength in ships and

Today we are flying as much lend-

members of the Michigan Senate, at
the request of Governor Kelly, will
confer with Governor Bricker of Ohio
at Columbus tomorrow to weigh the
possibility of joint action by the two
states in changing from Eastern to

Kelly appointed Senators Earl W.

strong positions. But I am confident
that though the fighting will be
tough, when the final Allied assault
is made, the last vestige of Axis
power will be driven from the south
shore of the Mediterranean.
Approximately 1,500,000 of our sol-
diers, sailors, marines and fliers are
in service outside our continental lim-

In Africa we are shooting down
two enemy planes to every one we
lose, and in the Pacific and in the
southwest Pacific we are shooting
them down four to one.
I cannot tell you when or where the
United Nations are going to strike
next in Europe. But we are going to
strike-and strike hard.
We produced (in 1942) about
48,000 military planes-more than
the airplane production of Ger-
many, Italy and Japan put to-
gether. Last month, December, we
produced 5,500 miitary planes and
the rate is rapidly rising.
