One of the war's most brilliant tac-
tical successes ushered in last week

President John A. Hannah, of Michi- The Mareth Line was reduced, Rom-

ing soldier-students assigned to the Afrika Corps survived to fight an-
college for training, cautioned them other day and apparently the long

public servants at home and abroad
preserve in peace what we now fight
for. Unless you men who now fight
our battles have vision, foresight and
leadership to assume that responsi-
bility, your sacrifice may have been
in vain."
Straight from Hannah to the sol-
diers, who are members of an Army
Air crew training detachment, came
the injunction that uniformed stu-
dents would be bound by the same re-
striction as civilian students, and that
this means there could be no smoking
on the campus, save in certain build-
ings. The soldiers are under quaran-
tine to check an outbreak of colds
and influenza.
He assured them they would re-
ceive full credit toward a degree for
their studies here, would have all the
privileges of civilian students but
would be bound by the same restric-
Society Plans
Study Series"
The Karl Marx Society has sched-
uled a series of classes to be held on
alternate Sundays throughout the
rest of the semester in the Union.
The first discussion group, which
is to meet today, will center around
the topic "The Nature of Fascism."
Factors which will enter into the dis-
cussion are Britain's world front and
the nature of imperialism and cap-
The meeting on April 18 will dis-
cuss the "Nature of the Soviet Union"
and the next meeting, scheduled for
May 2, will consider "Labor's Role
in the War." The series will be con-
cluded with a discussion of "The NA-
tional Question" on May 16.

Nevertheless there was nothing to
indicate that the Allied schedule for
clearing Rommel and Von Arnim out
of Africa as a preliminary to invasion
across the Mediterranean had been
disarranged. Rommel's next haven
almost certainly must be his last on
African soil.
Eisenhower Expresses Satisfaction
General Eisenhower, the American
Commander in Chief, summed up the
week's achievements with a declara-
tion that the British, French and
Americans under him "are working
in complete harmony and unison not
only toward immediate victory on
this front but also toward eventual
complete defeat of all our enemies."
On other fronts there was little
surface evidence of the progress of
the United Nations program but
neither were there any setbacks.
Allied planning for victory and for
post-war problems made obvious
progress. Anthony Eden, Britain's
Foreign Secretary, ended a visit to
Washington which President Roose-
velt said produced agreement on 95
per cent of the ground covered.
United States officers from the three
major Pacific commands were re-
turning to their posts after Washing-
ton war councils which promised the
early unfolding of action to confound
the Japanese. United Nations confer-
ences on food and currency problems
were announced for the near future.
Rising Intensity in Atlantic

of the Atlantic, which the Allies must
win if they are to snatch victory in

the other battles, indicated it was
rising to a new pitch on intensity. The
Germans made their monthly boast
of U-boat and submarine sinkings,
926,600 tons. That, properly discount-
ed, was not alarming! Allied spokes-
men gave assurances that the margin
of new building over sinkings was
being maintained, perhaps even in-
creasing at a rising pace.

Lutherans To Celebrate
Golden Jubilee Today
Two special golden jubilee services
will be held today at Trinity Evange-
lical Lutheran Church in celebration
of its fiftieth anniversary.
Dr. Elmer E. Flack, Th.D., S.T.M.,
dean of Hamma Divinity School at
Springfield, 0., will preach for the
regular Sunday service at 10:30 a.m.
on the subject "The Stability of the
Church." The Rev. Claudius Jensen,
president of Michigan Synod of the
United Lutheran Church, will speak
at the vesper service beginning at
6:30 p.m.
Trinity Lutheran Church is largely
the product of a University professor's
ideal. Prof. Carl W. Belser of the Se-
mitic Languages department, became
interested in establishing a Lutheran
Church conducted in English. The
first regular church service was held
on Easter' Sunday, April 2, 1893.
During the past ten years the
church has been served by the Rev.
Henry 0. Yoder who has also acted
as pastor for the Lutheran students
of the University.

John C. Vivian (above) of Colo-
rado ordered the state's selective
service to stop Induction of farm
workers in the state, charging
"chaotic confusion" In situation.
