"Fresh Vegetables Are
A Treat Compared
To Dehydrated Food"
Judge Advocate General's School
"It's wonderful to be here, without
blackouts, curfew, and enjoy fresh
vegetables, Lt. Donahue of the Judge
Advocate's School reminds us.
Flying in from Hickam Field,
Hawaii, to attend the eleventh class
in the JAGD School, Lt. Edgar A.
Donahue, said:
"A lot of little things make up the
difference between here and there.
Strict blackouts, with not even a
cigarette lighted after dark,-it is a
treat to see lights burn brightly at
night. The complete absence of re-
strictions in America gives one the
same feeling a child has waking up
Christmas morning, and there are
all the new gifts scattered in profu-
Dehydrated Foods Used
"My triple daily thrill is fresh veg-
etables. We had dehydrated food in
the Islands. Everyone was in quar-
ters at nine, and there was no fooling
about it. Cars were off the street
also by nine, otherwise a fine of $25
in the Provost. Marshal's Court.
"One of the funniest experiences
I ever had was attending the opening
of the first night club in Hawaii
since the war. It had a loudly pro-
claimed, gala, stupendous opening
the first night at six p.m. but of
course on account of curfew, it
promptly closed at 9:00 p.m. Every-
one took the restriction as a matter
of course.
"We went about loaded down with
gas mask and helmet. I had a year
of that, and the complete sense of
freedom, of going without mask and
helmet, the bright light of Ann Ar-
bor, -and yes, the fresh vegetables,
makes one feel in another world, just
a lot of little things make freedom,
and happiness. -
"Yet the people took everything in
their stride in the Islands, and are
on the alert with confidence, courage
and morale at their peak.
Search for Brother..
"The most. .interesting experience
I had was trying. tofind my. brother.
He had enlisted- a year before I did,
and all each of us had was the other's
A.P.O. number for mailing purposes.
I knew he was With an infantry out-
fit somewhere in the Islands, and for
weeks I ferreted out every clue to
find him. At last I located him on
a nearby island, wangled a two day
pass, the first in months, and when
I encountered him, he was almost
too excited for words. He had been
working seven days a week for
months, but a oQmrade took his tour
of duty for a day, and we had a real

Vincent in service, and a sister, Miss

Organization Based on
United Nations Would
Maintain World Order
CHICAGO, May 3.- (P)-- Forma-
tion of a "council of nations based on
the United Nations" to maintain
world order after the defeat of the
Axis was advocated today by the Re-
publican Post-war Policy Association
at its first meeting.1
The conference, attended by 70
delegates from 12 midwestern states,
approved a resolution to that effect,
and asked all who shared the new
organization's anti-isolation views to
support its program.
The statement adopted maintained
the principle of international collab-
oration was promulgated by three
Republican Presidents- McKinley,
Theodore Roosevelt and Taft- and
that it had been an accepted party
It also suggested that the require-
ments for establishing and preserv-
ing peace were:
"1. A complete military victory of
the Allies and the unconditional sur-
render of the aggressor nations.
"2. The United Nations must re-
main united if we are to secure inter-
national collaboration to prevent the
recurrence of future wars.
"3. .. . on the home front, we must
convert our war industries to peace-
time production and establish a
sound economic position with equal
opportunity for all after the war is
Smoker Will
Be Held Today
The annual All-Medical Smoker,
featuring a take-off on professors
and departments in the medical
school, will be held at 8 p.m. today
in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in
the League.
Men medical students and faculty
members are invited to attend this
traditional event :sponsored by the
Galen Honorary Medical Society.
Arthur Griep, '43M, heads the com-
mittee in charge.
Highlight of the evening will be
the customary presentation of The
Shovel to the professor who has
"thrown the most bull" in the past
year. Max M. Peet, professor of sur-
gery, who received the honor last
year, will present it to his successor.
Members of Galen Society vote for
their choice, but the results are not
revealed until the latter part of the

Tunisia, April 25 (Delayed)- (AP)-
American soldier mule skinners de-
scribed .this country today as "worse
than Guadalcanal."
it is "ambush country" in which
the skinners are forced to hack their
paths through to carry supplies to
isolated American units plugging
through the rugged hill country east
to Sedenane.
Their little mules are called
"French Jeeps" by the French sol-
diers. They have been the sole
transportation units during the last
few days for bringing in food, water
and ammunition to some units.
Without these necessities, they would
be unable to advance or to return
their wounded, who now are carried
to the rear on the backs of the mules.
The pack trains have been operat-
ing only a few days but, "They have
Fraternity Initiation
Petitions Due Today
All petitions for initiation of fra-
ternity pledges 'this semester must
be turned in too the Interfraternity
offices in the Union today, as the
IFC Executive Committee will meet
tomorrow to consider these petitions.
Freshmen with a grade lower than
C and upperclassmen whose overall
average is below a C must petition
the Executive Committee in order to
be declared eligible for initiation.
Petitions must include a statement
as to why the man is ineligible, why
he wants to be initiated, and what
his draft status is.

den Brill of Aberdeen, S.D.
One mule can carry two boxes of
.30-calibre machine gun ammunition,
or four water cans, or five 40-pound
cases of food. Any load averages
about 200 pounds. Some mules have
developed sore feet from the rocky
mountain jaunts. Here is what some
of the soldier skinners think about
their work:
"These mules aren't too smart-
they prefer G.I. crackers to sugar,"
said Private Daniel Smith of Negley,
0. "We used to use some horses,
too, and the Germans blew up two of
our best ones yesterday. One was
my little bay stallion, Tony. A mor-
tar shell landed under him."~
"I'll say one thing for these mules
-they're a lot better than lugging
the stuff up by hand and that's what
we had to do before we got them,"
remarked Sgt. Walter Parker of
Lewes, Del.

sionally about their classes and
about the men who teach them. One
hears an awful lot of good and never,
anything really on the other side of
the fence about them, too. Naturally.
when the Army sets a shotgun pace
at which a lot of technical thoughts
are to be crammed down a hetero-
geneous group of students, there will
be a lot of griping. But discount that.
The fellows do like the school, the
classes, and the men who teach them.
'Students Will
Lead Forums i
On Post-War
As a part of a general attempt to
stimulate student interest and dis-
cussion on post-war problems, two
groups of student volunteer speakers
from the Speakers' Bureau will lead
a symposium and three forums at
cooperative houses, a dormitory and
four fraternities and sororities today
and tomorrow.
Three students will give keynote
speeches on post-war problems at 7
p.m. today at the Congress, Muriel
Lester, and the Rochdale co-ops.
After the talks, the problem will be
thrown open for a general discussion.
Four students will lead a symposi-
um on plans for an international
organization before a combination
meeting of two fraternities and two
sororities at 7:15 p.m. tomorrow.
These include Phi Delta Theta, Sig-
ma Chi, Delta Gamma and Kappa
Kappa Gamma. John Muehl, '43,
will uphold the plan of a world feder-
ation, Elizabeth Hawley, '45, will ar-
gue for regional federation, Jean
Loree, '45, will present the arguments
for a revised League of Nations, and
Dorothy Servis, '45, will discuss the
possibilities for a plan of Pax Ameri-
Atthe same time a discussion will
be led at Helen Newberry by George
Simmons, '46, after John Condylis,
'46, speaks on "Let's State Our War
Aims Now."
The Student Speakers' Bureau, a
student organization which supplies
speakers to groups on and off cam-
pus, was established last fall. Dur-
ing the past year it has furnished
speakers for'the Office of Civilian
Defense, it has provided a complete
program for an adult Sunday School
class at the Methodist Church, and
it has stimulated interest among stu-
dents for the Post-War Conference
held last fall.
Co-chairmen of the Bureau are
Nancy Filstrup, '43, and Virginia
White, '43. Dr. Kenneth G. Hance
of the speech department is the fac-
ulty adviser.
UJA's Local f
Drive To Close
Tomorrow Is Last
Day for Contributions
Tomorrow is the final day for con-
tributions to the local drive of the
United Jewish Appeal; Herb Levin,
'45M, announced yesterday.
"We are very grateful for the large
amount of support and cooperation
which the students have shown in
this drive," Levin commented. He
expressed confidence that the drive
would reach its goal of $1,000 and
hoped that it would top that figure.
The UJA is a nation-wide cam-
paign with a goal of twenty-five
million dollars. The money which
is now being contributed will be dele-
gated to three specific causes. The
first is to reimburse those persons
who secure food for the starving Jews
in occupied countries. Money for

this purpose is placed in United
States banks and will be distributed
to these benefactors after the war.
Secondly, it helps those refugees
who have managed to escape to one
of the occupied- countries to establish
themselves in their new surround-
ings. Finally, it aids in the rehabili-
tation of Palestine.
Speakers have been visiting fra-
ternities, sororities, dormitories, and
league houses for the past week in
order to stress the purposes of the
drive and to urge support.

Horse Sense Defined
I don't suppose any of the fellows,
who hear it have forgotten yet thei
point which Prof. Churchill put
across with the added remark, "Horse
sense is something a horse has which3
keeps him from betting on a man."
And there's nothing in the Army
which can equal Mr. Jones defining+

then drawing imaginary zeros on the
blackboards clear around the room
over in old East Hall.

the Math 4A-1 class will never forget
the unmathematical utility of infin-
ity. Physics, too; half of the Engin-

Chilean Will
Speak Today
Alleinde To Lecture
In Rackhan Building
Prof. Carlos Alleinde of the Na-
tional University of Chile will speak
on "Some Aspects of Chilean Life"
at 8 p.m. today in the Lecture Hall
of the Rackham Building.
This lecture on the general aspects
of the development of Chile is to be
the seventh of a series of lectures on
Inter-Americanism sponsored by the
Latin American Society. Prof. Ale-
inde, a civil engineer and one of the
Chilean delegates to the first Pan-
American Congress of Highways,
gathered his information on trip
throughout Chile and through 41is
contacts with the leaders and people
of his country.
In 1928 Prof. Alleinde was ap-
pointed general director of thee-
partment of Highways. He-has writ-
ten one book on his field and will
soon publish another.

for the striking advance. Mateur had
been held briefly by British forces
between Nov. 27 and Dec. 4 in ealy
stages of the Tunisian fighting.
The American and French ad-
vances give the Allies control of all
territory west of a line between Ma-
teur and Bizerte. This line bisets
the great lake of Gareat Achkel, ahd
the only retreat for any enemy troops
remaining in the area is through the
narrow strips of land along the lake.
The fall of Mateur, 18 miles south-

west of Tunis, was officially a-
nounced by the Allied Comman.
Axis defenses collapsed at may

Lowell T. Coggeshall, professor of
epidemiology in the School of Pub-
lic Health, will give a series of lec-
tures this week at Edmonton, Al-
berta, on the relationship of tropical
diseases to war problems.
The lecture series is sponsored un-
der the joint auspices of the medical
departments of the United States
and Canadian Armies. Army medical
personnel stationed in Alaska will
also attend.
Prof. Coggeshall recently gave the
Cutter Lecture at the larvard Medi-
cal School on the same subject.
The purpose of the lectures is to
train medical personnel, irrespective
of their present location, to handle
tropical diseases. This control prob-
lem has been made more pressing by
present-day rapid means of travel.
As Prof, Henry T. Vaughan, dean of
the public health school said, "dis-
eases formerly considered as con-
fined to the tropics are now global
diseases. Soldiers returning from the
tropics by airplane may spread such

a disease, and even civilian doctors
are being trained to meet the new
Prof. Coggeshall recently returned
from Africa and the East, where he
was assisting the government in es-
tablishing programs for controlling
tropical diseases.;
He is also experimenting on an-
other substitute for quinine. The
synthetic "atabrine" now used by the
services has not been totally suc-
cessful in combating malaria.
LONDON, May 3.- (WP)-The Brit-
ish radio broadcast reports from Is-
tanbul tonight saying that German
troops had arrived at the Italian
island of Rhodes, in the Aegean Sea
near the Turkish coast. (The OWI
added that the broadcast reported
that neutral observers were associat-
ing the German troop movement
with the large-scale invasion exer-
cises carried out on Cyprus by British
troops last week.)
