Campus Gets Chance
To Study Peace Issues
TF EVER THE WORLD will need in-
telligent, informed men to criticize
its proposals for peace it will be after this war.
A Tealization of this need by the Post-War
Council last summer prompted a suggestion of
a course' analyzing the issues involved in win-
ning the peace. Now that course is being offered:
Social'Studies 93, the problems of the war and
of the peace.
The benefits of this course can be tremendous.
f the students 'who enroll in it seriously study
the'. problems that :they will surely face in the
future,. they may help1 prevent a fiasco like the
peace of the last war.,

Russian Winter Cannot
Brin Allied Victories
T again bringing with it the- wishful
story that Germany will be stopped by the Rus-
sian weather, and that all the Russians have
to do is hold out another month and everything
will be jake. This would be nice. The Russians
would like Ait to happen. The rest of the Allies
would also like it. But it just won't work out
that.,way - not by itself, at least.
Russia is the coldest place on earth where
active fighting is going on, and winter will find
the Nazis eating carmels to keep their teeth from
But the Russians are graced by no special
providence that keeps them from freezing to
death. The Nazis have ransacked every piece
of warm clothing from western Europe they
could lay their hands on to keep their
soldiers warm this winter.
They cannot succeed entirely, but with last
winter's experience, they will not be caught as
short. Their realization that Russia won't be
knocked out makes them even more dangerous,
for their planning is more exacting and creful.
And the Russians are having more than their
share of difficulties in getting sufficient clothing
for the winter. Ordinary winter furs made for
city living aren't good enough for continuous
exposure, for lying in open fields, or for sniping
from gutted buildings.
N OTHER WORDS, the political soothers who
want to enlist winter on the Allied, side, and
the harebrained optimists who just figured out
'that We have nothing -to worry about until
spring, slitting their own collective throats
With a very well sharpened razor. And if we be-
lieve them because it's the easiest way out; and
serves as the perfect excuse to look to easier
fields to conquer, we'll be slicing right with
Finally, if the short memories will be
lengthened just a little, it will be recalled
that while winter stopped the German ad-
vanee, it did not throw it backan apprec-
iable distance. When the roads were still
all mud the Nazis began their push again,
and what they lost during the cold months.
was not enough to stop them entirely, or
even slow them up for long.
Hitler doesn't have to get Stalin's signature
on a peace treaty to make Russia another "en-
lightenedcountry." All he has to do is push his
dines far enough into Russia to make her armies
retreat behind the Ural' wall, or push them far

(This column is written by Hale Champion,'
formerly very much of The Daily, who leaves
tomorrow for the army . . . Torquemada).
The time has come - as Lewis Carroll's famed
Walrus once said - to speak of many things.
Tomorrow morning I leave Ann Arbor and the
University of Michigan for the duration, and
the things that I'd like to say come in a vast
emotional wave.
I am happy, proud to be leaving. I am sorry,
a little ashamed about what I leave behind.
I am happy because I am breaking a shroud
of apathy that held me from September, 1940
to September, 1942 from doing what I knew I
should do. I am only a little proud because it
took me so long.
I am sorry to, leave behind me a campus
that is failing to fulfill its potentialities as a
force for democracy. I am ashamed to leave
behind me a pot-wearing, bonfire-burning,
play-soldiering, coke-drinking, socially-un-
conscious campus.
I admit I am bitter about students who take
their war over the soda-counter, and their self-
expression from the sticky sentimentality of
Tin Pan Alley. I admit that I hate to leave
-efore all that changes. I hope and know that
it will change.
There are a million other things that I have
a million other emotions about. Football games,
presstime on The Daily,; the people I know, the
things I didn't get around to doing..
But when I leave Ann Arbor tomorrow morn-
ing it will be with one great hope: That the
University of Michigan led by its students will
do an about face, that it will discard its academic
detachment and pitch into the war effort with
a whole heart, ready to sacrifice not only what
it MUST, but what it CAN.
-Pvt. Hale Champion
O MORE BABY GARG'S, the Board in Con-
trol of Student Publications decided yes-
terday. No more cartoons of voluptuous lingerie-
clad women lounging in the Arboretum. No
more sly jokes for the freshmen.
Maybe the, death certificate should read:
"Death By Overexposure."
That hitch-hiker murder up in Midland
yesterday probably will kill our chances
of getting rides into Detroit for the next
month or so.
.TavioRahikainen Finley, a Detroit tailor who
said he was afraid to fight in the war, yesterday
tok the easy way out. He sliced his wrists with
a trimmer knife, stuck his long tailor's scissors
into his neck and swallowed a vial of poison.

The University doesn't know it yet but the
president of a large mid-western university
was on campus incognito the other day just
looking around and observing a few things.




WASHINGTON-Those who accompanied the
President when he reviewed military maneuvers
in the far West, reported that three things
stood out which should make the American Army
the peer if not superior to any in the world.
(1) The marvelous physical fitness of the
troops; (2) their high-spirited morale and bound-
less enthusiasm; (3) their mental alertness and
Regarding the first, Army doctors have been
astounded at the record-breaking low sickness
rate, despite the rigor of the training schedule
and thefield conditions. Although living in the
open under blazing skies with bivouacs shifting
almost daily, with tentage, blankets and other
personal equipment limited wholly to what can
be carried in packs, the health of the men is
superb. Not only have there been no epidemics
of any kind, but the daily "sick report" has
practically disappeared in many units.
The hardness of the troops is truly phenomen-
al. After the invasion of Poland, U.S. corres-
pondents wrote awed stories about the spectacu-
lar marching ability of the German soldier; of
hiking 70 miles in 24 hours and then going im-
mediately into battle. That is an outstanding
performance, but it's nothing unusual in the
maneuvers which the President witnessed.
In several problems, outfits have chalked up
even better records; while 30 and 40 mile opera-
tional marches are every day occurances. One
regiment hiked 35 miles across swamp land in
a total blackout and nearly the same distance
'the' next day under a broiling sun and intermit-
tent downpours to surprise the "enemy" and
punch a hole through a soft spot in his lines.
High Morale
The morale of the troops is as exuberant as
their physical well-being. One striking evidence
of this is the pride they take in their personal
cleanliness, and the smartness of their attire and
equipment. Is is a common sight to see men all
over a "battle" area in woods and under bridges,
shaving, brushing their teeth and washing up,
just before dawn.
After "battle," no matter how weary they are,
the first thing the troops do is to "police up",
their arms and equipment. And they do it with
a will and dash.
Only troops of high morale, troops who have
pride in themselves and the cause they are serv-
ing, will stand up under gruelling tests such
as part of those which the President witnessed.
It takes more than merely wearing a uniform
to stand up under tough maneuvers of this kind.
You've got to have it inside you.
The Army will not permit the Justice Depart-
ment to make any mention of crimes involving
the Army. If a civilian is shot by a soldier, or
vice-versa, Justice can say absolutely nothing.
Even when Gen. Buckner in Alaska swears out
a mandamus ordering Secretary Ickes to show
cause why he should not get a hunting license
to shoot moose, andit is all a matter of court
record, the Justice Department must keep its
lips sealed . . . After six months, -the Justice
Department usually asks if it can -release the
information, and the Army replies, "It's old news,
so let's forget it" . . . Bill Hassett, White House
assistant press secretary, telephones cabinet
officers and high administration officials when-
ever anything appears min the papers showing
they are at loggerheads. Bill's idea is to keep
