Kai-shek Urges



Her address to the Senate was
briefrand extemporaneous, prefaced
by an apolgy that she had not known
she was to make one there and pre-
pared only one for the House. The
House speech was read and broad-
Escorted by House party leaders
to Speaker Sam Rayburn's rostrum,
the fragile figure in the long slim
Chinese gown waited wlhile the speak-
er first requested, then ordered glar-
ing floodlights turned off. During
her speech, however, Mme. Chiang
neither faltered nor flinched at flash
Her cultured voice ranged from ve-
hemence over "Japan's sadistic fury,"
to strong pride in China's five-and-
a-half-year fight and -dropped to low,
urgent tones in speaking of hopes
for a better future world. .
Mme. Chiang told a chamber
jammed with officials, diplomats and
Chinese. that the Amei'ican people
have every.right to be.proud of their
fighting men, particularly those
whose duty was "the monotony of
The American-educated -.Chinese
leader also asserted she felt at home
here and believed Americans "are
building and carrying out a true pat-
tern of the nation conceived by your
forebears, strengthened- and con-
Congress, she said, would have the
"glorious opportunity of carrying on
the pioneer work of your ancestors,
beyond the frontiers of physical and
geographical limitations." She added
that it was the task of this Congress
to point the way to win the war.
Then the champion of China's
cause launched into forceful asser-
tion that the defeat of Japan is of'
major importance..
The woman who came to this coun-
try for the announced purpose of rec-
tifying physical injuries received in
bomb-torn China declared:
"Let us not forget that Japan in
her occupied areas today has greater
resources at her command than Ger-
"Let us not forget that the longer
Japan is left in undisputed possession
of these resources, the stronger she
mut become. Each passing day takes
more toll in lives of both Americans
and Chinese."

Alpha Omicron Pi Gals "Bitter'
About House Boiler Explosion

The girls of Alpha Omicron Pi are
a little bitter today.
At 10 a.m. Sunday the furnace
boiler at the house suddenly erupted
and after the smoke had cleared
there was no more boiler.
As a result, they have been forced
to take up makeshift rooms wherever
they could get them and today they
are scattered in dormitories on cam-
pus, wondering when they can move
back into the house, wondering how
they can carry on rushing and won-
dering whether they can trust boilers
in the future.
While the girls were sleeping last,
Sunday morning, a loud blast shook
the house and was immediately fol-
lowed by huge jets of steam that

Elects Officers

elected Harvey Weisverg, '46,
chairman, Elsienor Hopkins,
treasurer, and Robert Sucher,


geant-at-arms, at their second meet-
ing of the semester which was held
Wednesday in Angell Hall.
Under the leadership of E. W. Mill
of the political science department,
the group discussed the present or-
ganization of the United Nations.
The members agreed that the pres-
ent basis of unification is a common
fear of world conquest. However, if
the United Nations is to be a per-
manently powerful force after the
war the basis for unity must be a
common faith, was their conclusion.
The discussion was closed with the
question,' "How much punch has de-
mocracy as the rallying force of the
United Nations?"

gave the appearance of a house afire.
The girls fled to the third-floor dor-
mitory, snatching fur coats, purses,
dresses and pictures of the boy friend
in uniform.
After the fire department had been
called to the scene, a bull-session
came up with the dilemma-where to
First an offer came from Lambda
Chi Alpha to use the fraternity's
downstairs room but the Administra-
tion did not think this was such a
good idea. Finally the girls had to
take their rushing to the League,
where all sorts of difficulties have
cropped up, for example, how to serve
food to the rushees.
It seems that Pan-Hel has ruled
that no sorority can spend more than
a nickel per rushee in serving re-
freshments, which is all right-if you
serve in the sorority house. But the
League has a special rule of its own
that says there.will be no serving un-
less the AOP gals kick in with at
least fifteen cents per rushee, serving
So if you see a girl hurrying in or
out of the League with a determined
look in her eye, shun her. She's in no
mood to explain the vagaries of boil-
ers, specifically or in general.

'U' Facilities
Available to
7,660 Soldiers
Col. Ganoe Says Space
Oni Campus Is Largest
In Country for Military
The University of Michigan can
make available to the Army Special-
ized Training Program facilities for
7,660 soldiers, more than any other
college or University in the country,
according to figures just dispatched
to the Sixth Service Command Head-
quarters by Col. W. A. Ganoe, head
of. the campus military science de-
At the present time the University
has housing facilities for 11,480 sol-
diers and can feed 6,600 of them at
a single sitting. In each case this is
approximately twice the normal pro-
vision for students, the report stated.
Michigan is one of the few univer-
sities in the country to receive part
of the first increment of Specialized
Training students, Ganoe said. With
other schools it should receive a share
of 60,000 Army men expected to be
put into colleges by April 1 and esti-
mated 150,000 to be sent by June 30.
Ganoe added as his opinion that the
University would be called upon to
train about 5,000 soldiers by Septem-
The University expects 350 Air
Corps Meteorological students by
March 1, with the number planned
to be increased to 500 by May 1.
The only shortage which ap-
proaches a bottleneck, Ganoe stated,
is that of instructors and laboratory
facilities, which for engineering and
scientific training can now handle
2,220 soldiers. He added that such
measures as shortening of laboratory
periods and sharing of desks, the
number would be increased ten to
thirty per cent.
Part of the possible number of
Army men are already here in such
service units as the ROTC, the Judge
Advocate Generals School and the
Language School group.

Miss Louckes Struck
By Automobile Thursday
Miss Velma Louckes of the Regis-
trar's office sustained only severe
bruises yesterday morning when she
was knocked down by an automobile
at the corner of South and East Uni-

Hospital reported last night.
Miss Louckes was struck walking
across the street by a car driven by
Mrs. Annetta Kivi, 48, of 921 Church
Street, police said.
Farmers Await Thaw
LANSING, Feb. 18.--(P)-Michigan
farmers are keeping a wary eye on
the thermometer, awaiting the first
sign of a thaw that will start the
tradition-steeped maple run.


"The number of books collected for
the Victory Book Campaign has been
very disappointing," Prof. W. G. Rice,
University chairman of the drive, said
yesterday when he pointed out that
less than ten per cent as many books
have been turned in this year as com-
pared to last year.
Prof. Rice suggested that students
invest in the pocket editions of popu-
lar novels and contribute them to
the campaign if they have no other
books to give. Three million books
have been called for to send to men
in the service, and the University is
far below its quota.
The central committee of the cam-'
paign fears that many people may
turn in books to the collection depots
after Saturday noon, and since the
organization is a temporary one the

books cannot be accommodated after
that time. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and
the Red Cross Motor Corps will collect
the books from the located depots.
On campus these depots are located
in the General Library, in the depart-
mental collegiate libraries, Angell
Hall, the League and the Union. Be-
cause of the shortage of gasoline and
manpower the books will be collected
on Saturday only. Late contributions
may be taken directly to North Hall,
where they will be stored until sorted.
The Victory Book campaign com-
mittee is asking that books of recent
fiction, biography and travel be selec-
ted for the men in the Army, Navy
and Air Corps. The Red Cross will
arrange the final distribution of the

Bishop was appointed to the Board
in January.
Spurring the battle for the high-
way nomination was the feeling in
political circles that such a selection
would heighten the nominee's chances
of an appointment to the job-if the
Senate should relent and push
through the bill to give the governor
power to appoint a highway com-

of Grand Rapids, and A. L. Burridge
of Cadillac.
In addition to the highway post,
other offices for which the conven-

seats on the State Board of Agricul-

BALTIMORE, Feb. 18.-- (,)-
Twenty-six persons were burned, sev-
eral critically, in an explosion and
fire today at a Standard Oil Com-
pany plant. Most of the injured were
employes of a construction company
working on an installation near the
scene of the explosion which occurred
when an accumulation of butane flu-
id became ignited.

City Lays Plans
For Huge War
Rally Monday
(Continued from Page 1)
tire day will start off early Monday
morning when a troop of at least 50
soldiers, slated for overseas combat
duty, arrive here to spend the day
touring Ann Arbor's war industries.
The purpose of this is to allow the
service men to see where the imple-
ments they fight with come from and
how they are made, Dr. Louis A. Hop-
kins, chairman of the University War
Board, said yesterday, in announcing
the details of this celebration.
Sergeant Bartek is also expected to
accompany the soldiers on their
rounds of the local war plants.
Two jeeps, together with other mod-
ern fighting equipment, will be
brought along by the soldiers, and
these will be set up as war exhibits on
the corner of North University and
State Street, and on the courthouse
lawn. Throughout the day ROTC
cadets will be stationed at each of
these exhibits.
The main purpose of this celebra-
tion-to salute the city's war work-
ers and to stimulate civilian morale-
is especially appropriate since many of
Ann Arbor's plants have already been
cited for their production records,
Dr. Hopkins said.
The mass metting is primarily for
war workers and their families, but all
other civilians have been invited.
