Thomas DeQuincey's "Theory of
Literature" a book based on a doctor-
al dissertation written in 1937 by the
former Prof. Sigmund K. Proctor of
the University of Michigan, has just
been published.
Because of his sudden death in
1938, the book was left incomplete
but was finished by Profs. C. D.
Thorpe and Paul Mueschke of the
English department. A supplement
bringing it up to date has been added
by Professor ,Thorpe.
Professor Proctorwas born Jan. 4,
1903 in Sturgis, Mich. and died Aug.
18, 1938. After graduating from
Michigan in 1923, he became an in-
structor in Rhetoric and English at
the University.
This book, of the many volumes
that havebeen written about DeQuin-
cey, is the first to be devoted entirely
to a consideration of his literary the-
Controls Profit
Waterman Discusses
Important Methods
"Renegotiation of government con-
tracts is an important method of con-
trolling war profits," Prof. Merwin
H. Waterman said, discussing the re-
suts of an American Management
Conference which he attended in New
York City.
Renegotiation is rewriting of a
government contract, after the com-
pany holding the contract has started
production. Fair profits can then be
determined more accurately since the
manufacturer has had a chance to
gain a better idea of the costs in-
volved in production.
Prof. Waterman pointed out the
fact that last year an attempt was
made to introduce legislatiqn limiting
the amount of profit a government
contractor could make. This limit
would be unsatisfactory, however, be-
cause "set profit will not stimulate
production." At present a statute pro-
vides that all government contracts
are automatically subject to renego-
tiation. By this method, Prof. Water-
man said, an effort is. made "to fit
the pattern (of profits) to circum-
stances in each particular case."
Prof. Waterman explained that fair
profits are measured by "pre-war pro-
fits of the company, extent to which
they have converted to war produc-
tion, risks involved in undertaking
war production, extent of cooperation
between contractor and the govern-
ment" and similar factors.
Fort Custer Mascot
Will Lose His Stripes
FORT CUSTER, Mich., April 6.-
(A)- "Master Sergeant" Duke, Fort
Custer mascot believed to be the only
living Great Dane Non-Con, may find
himself stripped of his stripes and
"busted" to a private when he gets
back to this post from Chicago, where
he was picked up today by police as
Capt. Edwin Hughes, Post Provost
Marshal, is pretty provoked about the
whole incident and declared the
"Master Sergeant" had better beat it

There is a growing and probably
well founded belief that the United
Nations are preparing something
highly unpleasant for the Japanese.
The latest authority to lend weight
to this view is Walter Nash, New
Zealand's minister to the United
States, who has attended all recent
meetings of the Pacific War Council
in Washington.
Returning home Monday he as-
serted he was convinced "the Jap-
anese will get a terrible shock
when everything now being built
is unleashed against them." It is
a mistalke, Nash added, to think
that all the strength of the Allies
is being concentrated on Hitler.
The danger inherent in the beat-
Hitler-first strategy most frequently
cited by its critics is the possibility
that Japan, given a year or two of
comparative immunity from attack
against the main body of her "co-
prosperity sphere,". will become so
strong she never can be beaten. It
is argued that a mere continuation
of attacks against the outer fringes
of her conquests, even such defeats
as Guadalcanal and Papua, will not
be enough to interfere seriously with
her program for exploiting the rich-
es she has grabbed and putting to-
gether a mighty military machine.
Capacity in Doubt
Although there is some doubt as
to Japan's capacity to accomplish
this, some experienced observers
holding that she lacks the techni-
cians, skilled labor and industrial
equipment, there is general agree-
ment that the longer Japan is left
in- enjoyment of her spoils the more
difficult her defeat will be.
Therefore it would be logical to
expect that a primary objective of
whatever new Americaneor Allied
strategy may be in the making
would be disruption of her pro-
gram of economic and military
Something already is being done
along this line, but just a few small
beginnings. The most recent exam-
ple is last Sunday's raid by Yankee
Liberators on the big Thilawa oil
refinery south of Rangoon, in BurmaI
which inflicted heavy destruction on
a plant on which the Japanese obvi-
ously had counted for a big part of
the fuel needed for their forces in
that theatre. The raid apparently
nullified several months' work done
bty Japanese technicians, seeking to
restore installations which the Brit-
ish destroyed before Rangoon fell.

LANSING, April 6.-(IP)-Posses-

State Supreme Court today to con-

In a seven to one decision, the
court upheld a Wayne County court
conviction of Wayne Lippert, who
was convicted in 1941 of manufac-
turing and selling punchboards in
Dearborn. The court said Lippert
drew a suspended sentence because
he had been advised his operations
were not illegal.
