Thrty Sailors
Leave Graud,
Join DeC aulle
HALIFAX, Feb. 26.-UP)--Eager to
enlist under the banner of the Fight-
ing French, about 30 sailors from the
giant battleship Richelieu and other
French war vessels nowdin United
States ports have arrived here en-
route to Britain to join the forces of
Qen. Charles DeGaulle.
The sailors who included a lieu-
tenant and three junior officers, left
their vessels after they arrived in
American waters following a stormy,
submarine-threatened passage from
Dakar in French West Africa.
They chose to throw in their lot
with the DeGaullists rather than re-
main with the other French faction
now headed by Gen. Henri Giraud.
They did this even though the French
war vessels are to be refitted to join
the United Nations in the sea war-
About 34 merchant seamen also
have arrived here from New York qnd
other harbors of the U.S. They too,
were headed for Britain to join the
merchant fleet of the Fighting
The seamen gave the impression
that they disapproved of some of
their former officers.
The lieutenant in charge simply
"It's best not to say much about
it," he said: "The thing is done now,
and it will do no good to make
trouble. There is trouble enough al-
ready between the two French groups,
and after all. we are in the same
fight now."

University of Michigan is sending
Professor H. T. Price to lecture at
Cornell on March 8.

T-rip 1Thnrougn Dangerous Jeas

Thirteen special engineering stu-
dents from Chile left home on a
sunny midsummer's day, and arrived
in the United States last week, 43
days later, in the middle of a cold
North American winter.
They set sail while Chile still was
continuing diplomatic relations with
the Axis, and they arrived a month
delayed in New Orleans after a zig-
zag dash across the ocean, with their
country strictly neutral.
Dodging and ducking lurking sub-
marines, they came to a land where
winter falls in the summer months,
and the centigrade thermometer is
unheard of except as a laboratory

Cadets *in March
Officers, Enlisted Men
To Take Over Spacious'
Jenison Field House
EAST LANSING, Feb. 26.- UP)-
Michigan State's newest wartime ad-
ministrative staff has found its cam-
pus niche and is making ready for
the influx of hundreds of aviation
cadets for "pre pre-flight training."
Approximately 50 officers and en-
listed men, mainly from Gulf coast
training units in Texas, have estab-
lished headquarters in spacious Jeni-
son Field House where they will di-
rect activities of the aviation pro-
gram soon to get under way.
Maj. Raymond S. Risien, who will
be commanding officer of the detach-
ment here, said first arrival of air
rookies was expected around March
27. He said fewer than 1,500 youths
were anticipated "at the start." Col-
lege officials previously had estimat-
ed between 2,000 and 4,000 cadets
would be assigned here.
Maj. Risien explained that cadets
sent here substantially will be youths
recently called to active duty from
Army Air Force Reserve Corps whose
training at Michigan State will prime
them for future training at regular
pre-flight centers.
"Reserves who have studied the
basic subjects to be offered in this
program will be by-passed directly to
pre-flight centers," he said, "so our
personnel probably will be boys just
out of high school or college men in
need of refresher courses. Actually,
we will conduct a pre, pre-flight

Guillermo Tores, whose first name
means William in English, tells of
their ship, a day's voyage out of
Panama, receiving word that Chile
had elected to tread a separate path
from the Axis. Swinging about in
the choppy Caribbean they steamed
back to Panama, to wait two weeks
for a convoy escort to Cuba.
From Cuba they dodged their way

a constant game of hide and seek

Navy Officers
Tour Campus
An inspection of the facilities of
the University was completed yes-
terday by Lieut. D. W. Beste and
Lieut. B. W. Steanczak of the Ninth
Naval District Training Office, Great
Lakes, Ill., in connection with the
Navy Specialized Training Program
scheduled to go into effect July 7.
"The purpose of the trip here was
merely for inspection, not to nego-
tiate any contracts or to make any
commitments," Prof. Marvin L. Nie-
huss, coordinator of emergency
training, stated.
The officers arrived here Wednes-
day morning and left yesterday aft-
Aircraft Inspectors
Graduate from 'U'
Graduation ceremonies were held'
yesterday for fifty more University-
trained aircraft inspectors at the
West Engineering Building.
Now trained for their jobs after a
ten week course in the fundamentals
of aircraft inspection on a program
approved by the Army, the graduates
will hold junior procurement inspec-
torships at various plane manufac-
turing plants throughout the nation.
Representatives of the Army, the
civil service, and the University at-
tended the ceremony at which dual
diplomas were handed to each grad-
uate, one from the Army Air Force
and the other from the University.

negotiated with coal operators next
Pittsburgh Mine Idle
One soft coal mine in the Pitts-
burgh area meanwhile was idle for a
third straight day as miners contin-
ued a walkout protesting the draft
deferment of unmarried Walter E.
Chaffon, 27. Thomas G. Ferguson,
mine superintendent, said that Chaf-
fon operates a $10,000 mechanical
coal loader and that no one is avail-
able to replace him, but Peter DsFil-
lippo, union secretary, contended
that other men "could easily. take
his place." The mine normally pro-
duces 4,700 tons of coal a day.
The union protest meeting which
led to a temporary production stop-
page yesterday at the Boeing Aircraft
Co. in Seattle was met by Dean
Wayne L. Morse of the War Labor
Board with the statement that the
board would continue its considera-
tion of the union's request for a start-
ing scale of 95 cents an hour instead
of the present 62% cents but that it
refused to be coerced into a decision.
Wallgren Condemns WLB
Senator Wallgren (Dem.-Wash.)
commented to interviewers at Beth-
page, N.Y., that the WLB had been
"sitting on its hands in the last few
months" and that the public "should
not be too willing and ready to con-
demn those labor boys."
"The WLB should have made'some
decision long ago," he declared. "If
they can't make such a decision, they
should fold up and go home."
The district council union presi-
dent, Harold J. Gibson, said at Seat-
tle that "there will be no work stop-
page and no strike" Monday when
the deadline expires on the union de-
mand that the WLB decide the wage
case. He warned workers .ot to
leave the job and said the scheduled
24-hour protest meeting could be at-
tended during off hours.
Thomas Distorts Steel Formula
As the WLB considered the aircraft
wage case, R. J. Thomas, president of
the CIO United Auto Workers and a,
labor member -of the WLB, declared
that Vice-Chairman.George W. Tay.
for is "fostering a distorted version of
the little steel formula."
Thomas maintained that cost .of
living increases are permissible under
the formula whereas he said Dr. Tate
for has been interpreting it as a wag*
freeze after workers receive a 15 Pei'
cent increase over their rates of Jan,
uary, 1941.
