problems relating to medicine and
surgery as they may pertain to this,
war." Dr. Penberthy added that sev-

ulty have contributed "liberally" their
time and knowledge to ;this activity.;
A great development has been made;
in the treatment of shock, wounds,;
fractures and burns, Dr. Penberthy

ualties to be treated in this emergen-
cy will afford a greater opportunity
to further evaluate these various
methods and types of therapy'.

A record-breaking number of men
have signed up for fraternity rushing
this fall. Close to 900 students, more
than ever before in the history of the
University and almost 200 over last
year's registration, have indicated
their desire to pledge a fraternity.
Today is- the last day that freshmen
may register for rushing. John Fau-
ver, president of the InterfraternityI
Council said that the IFC offices inI
the Union will be open from 3 to 5
p. m. to take, care of the last-minute
registration. Any freshman who has
not signed up by that time will not
be eligible for rushing until next Feb-
It was also explained that; every
man who wishes to be rushed this
semester, regardless of, whether he
signed up last year, must register
with the IFC.
Fauver stressed the point that,
"absolutely no rushing is permitted
Saturday, Oct. 10." This means that
no fraternity man is allowed to ac=
company or take a rushee to the
Michigan-Iowa Pre-flight Naval Ca-
det football game.
In addition, fraternities were re-
minded that no rushing dates may
be scheduled for Sunday evening and
that each house is allowed to make
only one date with a rushee during
the first 'four days.'
Homeowners Asked To Rent
Extra Rooms To War Workers
LANSING, Oct. 5- ()- Dwellers
in overcrowded industrial centers
were asked by Governor Van Wag-
oner today to open their homes to
provide living quarters for war work-
ers, as he petitioned the War Pro-
duction Board to release materials
for a speed-up of building construc-
Van Wagoner identified areas fac-
ing the most acute shortage of hous-
ing as Detroit, Willow Run, Muskegon
and Saginaw, but emphasized there
was a shortage in practically every
industrial city of the state.
Asked To Waive Restrictions
He called on landlords to waive
restrictions against renting to famil-
ies who have small children and
asked home owners and renters to
allow single workers and childless
couples to rent their spare rooms.
"It remains obvious that the War
production program cannot proceed
with full success unless we are able
Naval Affairs Club
To Probe Strategy
Of War Movements
Opening a series of weekly meet-
ings, the Michigan Naval Affairs Club
will gather in Angell Hall next Mon-
day night to discuss recent naval and
,aerial developments in the world-
The club, which holds its discus-
sions under the direction of Mr. E. W.
Mill of the political science depart-
ment, is a student organization com-
posed of men and women who are
particularly interested in the strate-
gical considerations of the present

year will include the activities of the
American Pacific Fleet, problems of

Nazi Official Criticizes
VICHY, Unoccupied France, Oct. 5
(WP)- A high official of the German
embassy in Paris sharply criticized
French industrialists today for their
lukewarmness to the Vichy Govern-
ment's new compulsory labor pro-
gram as the first trainload of 133,000
more workers demanded by the Nazis
left Paris for Germany.
"An abstention on the part of
French employers which remains dif-
ficult to understand is often to be
noted," Minister Schleier of the Nazi
embassy said, according to dispatches
from the occupied capital."

Food Handlrs Lectures: The City
Health 'Department is to conduct a
series of four lectures for the instruc-
tion of food handlers in the W. K.
Kellogg Auditorium (New Dental
Building) at 8:00 p. m. on October
6, 13, 20 and 27.
All persons concerned with food
service to University students are
urged to attend the entire series.
Biological Chemistry Seminar will
meet at 7:30 p. in., Wednesday, Octo-
ber 7, in Room 319, West Medical
Building. "The Sulfur - Containing
Amino Acids" will be discussed. All
to house decently the essential war
workers who must be added to the
local labor supplies in order to turn
out the materials of war from our
factories," Van Wagoner said in a
"War brings all of us added duties
and the necessity for added sacrifices.
The program I have suggested in-
volves sacrifices. It is essential."
Sharing Of Flats Suggested
He said occupants of apartments
and flats should share them with oth-
ers and, if this is impossible, some
of them might move into single rooms
and release their accommodations
for rental to families.
He suggested owners of large res-
idences remodel them with minimum
use of critical materials and, convert
them into homes for two or more
families, and that large apartments
be cut up into smaller quarters for
more family units.
Homes which are vacant while the
owners seek buyers "should immedi-
ately be placed on the rental mar-
ket," he asserted.
Governor Appeals To WPB
Coupled with the statement was an
appeal to the War Production Board
for release of more building materials
for Michigan, declaring lack of lum-
ber and lack of assurance that the
supply to be released in future would
be adequate "threatens failure of
completion of the private and public
"It is increasingly apparent that
shortages in transportation facilities
will become one of the major factors
in the housing problem for all war
workers," the Governor cautioned in
his message to the public.
"Conservation of tires and automo-
biles even beyond the degree which
may be enforced by rationing and
speed limitation is necessary. I ur-
gently request every owner of an au-
tomobile to conserve the car and tires
so that in the event of a crisis in
transportation there will remain a
reservoir of private facilities to get
war workers to the job from their
housing, wherever it may be."
