of democratic freedom which gave
birth to the republic, and which now
supports her people in a fight to the
death in a continuing revolution to
attain the greatest measure of ful-
fillment for these ideals.
Thirty-one years ago, revolutionary
armies overthrew the Manchu imper-
ial regime, and began to implement
the monumental "Three Principles of
the People" of Dr. Sun Yat-sen. To-
day the hard work of these three dec-
ades is menaced by a Japanese war
machine bent on destroying com-
pletely the constructive achievements
of the revolution.
Ticket Desk
To Be Open
For Resales
The football ticket Resale Desk will
again be open for business today prior
to game time, according to Marvin
Borman, '43.
The Desk which is located in the
lobby of the Michigan Union will be
open from 9:00 a. m. to 2:15 p. m. The
Desk was established to serve those
students and alumni who wish to buy
or sell tickets to Michigan's home
football games.
The Resale Desk also sells tickets
first-hand from a block received from
the ticket office.
Since student tickets are non-
transferable, only general admission
tickets can be accepted for resale.
These will be resold over the desk at
the regular price. No profit is made
by the Union and all unsold tickets
are returned to the owners.
However, on previous occasions it
has seldomp been necessary to return
such tickets. In fact, last-season the
Desk was able to claim 'a record of 99
per cent tickets resold, with only five
returned during the entire season.

Ickes' Letter
.Will_ Circulate
State To Publicize Notice
On Fuel Conservation
LANSING, Oct. 9.- (AP)- The Ex-
ecutive Office today asked the State
Defense Council to give wide circula-
tion to a letter- from Harold L. Ickes,
Petroleum Coordinator for War, call-
ing on owners of oil burning furnaces
to convert them to burn other fuel
if possible; otherwise to limit oil con-
sumption through conservation prac-
Ickes' letter did not mention the
proposed limit of 65 degrees on tem-
perature of oil heated dwellings.
The letter declared that loss of
tank ships through diversion to meet
military and naval deeds and through
submarine warfare has placed a hob-
ble on ability to supply usual fuel oil
markets. It has been necessary, he
added, to withdraw "both supplies
and transportation facilities from the
midwest" to equalize amounts avail-
able in this region and the eastern
"Thisrsharing of available supplies
and transportation facilities and the
increased demand for fuel oil in non-
convertible war industries have re-
sulted in a deficiency of fuel oil sup-
plies in both areas," Ickes wrote.
He recommended conversion of
burners to use a substitute fuel if
possible, adding that "in instances
where consumers cannot convert, it
is imperative that they effect maxi-

mumconservation by such actions as
the installation of proper insulation
and weather stripping, the closing of
windows, and the maintenance of the
heating system itself at maximum

"The matter of providing lumber
