Called a "mock congress," this con-
ference is unique in that students who
will consider themselves representa-
tives of some of the Axis powers and
the four United Nations-Great Brit-
ain, China, Russia and the United
States. Each resolution and bill pre-

p.m. Saturday. The concluding meet-
ing of the conference will open at 6
p.m, Sunday when all delegates meet

By Lecturer
Dr. Eduardo da Cruz
Says Brazilians Have
'Sense of Freedom'
"The result of President Vargas'
administration was to instill in the
Brazilians democratic and social
consciousness in some ways more
profound than in the United States,"
Dr. Eduardo Guidao da Cruz stated
in a lecture yesterday.
"Brazil is now a democracy," he
continued, "because the people have
gained a sense of freedom deep in
their hearts. In America, there still
remains a certain prejudice for race,
creed, and color which does not exist
in Brazil."
"President Vargas has been con-
tinually trying to keep ahead of
President Roosevelt in political evo-
lution," he remarked. "His first
step was to establish social insurance
reaching over 2,500,000 people in
"The social insurance policy of
President Vargas is the main factor
which sustained him in office for
these twelve years, and helped in the
preservation of Brazilian democratic
principles. Practically all his social
legislation was developed to counter-
act the distinct Communistic move-
ment prevailing among Brazilian
"The two main principles applied
by Vargas in his social insurance
program was the unification of all
institutions in geographical depart-
ments, and the creation of an insti-
tution taking over the investment of
all funds," Dr. da Cruz added.

As Rommel Retreats
(Continued from Page 1)
coastal junction with the British
Eighth Army.
Rommel's main forces appeared to
be making a hurried flight in open
country northward toward Sfax, 70
miles above the onrushing British
vanguards, and the coastal road was
reported strewn with many enemy
bodies and wrecked machines-vic-
tims of a ceaseless- shuttle-bombing
by American and British airmen.
The Eighth Army captured Met-
ouia and Oudref, the latter 12 miles
north of Gabes, early yesterday
morning and advanced units swept
on to contact "hastily prepared en-
emy defenses," the communique said.
Italian rear guards left by Rom-
mel in between these two Allied arm-
ies appear to be cut off unless they
make a precipitate withdrawal
through mountain trails leading
northeastward out of the pocket.
House Says 'No'
To Clare Luce
(Continued from Page 1)
Why, a taxpayer earning a million
dollars a year would have to pay
$1,023,100 in taxes each year for 5
years, or more than he gets.
"This just shows what a mess is
created when half-baked ideas are
tossed in here by someone who
doesn't know anything about taxes."
The House whooped with joy.
From all parts of the chamber came
cries: "vote, vote, vote!"
When the chairman asked for
"those in favor of this amendment,"
you could have heard a hairnet drop.
When he said "those opposed?"-
well, if you didn't have your ear-
muffs along you could tell that.if
Clare ever wins a popularity contest
in Congress,it won't be next week.
Students, Do Murals
For Air Corps Men
Twenty-six University students
have brightened the days for the air
corps men at Willow Run-not by
furnishing dates or sending books,
but by painting 3 murals and 30 side
panels for two recreation rooms.
It all started last November when
the Red Cross suggested to Miss
Ethel McCormick, director of the
League, that It wouldn't be a bad
idea if someone painted a few murals
for the bare walls of the Willow Run
ground school.
With the Red Cross furnishing the
money and the School of Architecture
supplying the artists, the murals were
completed this week and will be hung
on the walls next Monday.
The "unveiling" will take place at
4:30 p.m. today in the third floor dis-
play room of the architechture school.
Students wh worked on the three
murals included Gertrude Conover,
'43A, Aileen Olsen, '43A, Joan Clem-
ent, '44, Betty Kefgen, '43Ed, Steve
Michael, '43A, and Eleanor Kuivenen,
'43A. Twenty other students com-
pleted the side panels.
