Must Precede Coming
Invasion of Europe
By The Associated Press
A U. S. FIGHTER BASE, ENG-
LAND, April 11.-American fighter
pilots were told today by Gen. Dwight
D. Eisenhower that their role in the
great three-way invasion of Europe
soon will be flying a dawn-to-dusk
death express against the German
Disclosing some details of his plans
for the coming assault on the conti-
nental European fortress, the su-
preme commander for the western
front invasion told the fighter pilots
packed in a briefing room at this
station that he would drive them so
hard they would not have proper
sleep or food for weeks but that they
would knock the Nazi Air Force from
Gen. Eisenhower, accompanied by
Lt.-Gen. Carl A. Spaatz, commander
of the U.S. Strategic Air Forces;
Maj.-Gen. Lewis H. Brereton, com-
mander of the U.S. Ninth Air Force,
and Lt.-Gen. James H. Doolittle,
commander of the U.S. Eighth Air
Force, toured the fighter-bomber
station and told the fliers they were
doing their part in the great triad of
sea, land andair blows which finally
would crush the Germans and crush
them properly. The supreme com-
mander added that at the moment it
was entirely an air show.
The land Army, he said, cannot do
anything until the airmen knock out
the German Air Force.
The leader of the Allied forces
spent a 'busy day inspecting three
U.S. air bases and presenting Dis-
tinguished Service Crosses to two
ace Mustang pilots.

Prof. Waldo Abbot of the speech
and broadcasting department recent-
ly mailed copies of the Broadcasting
Newsletter No. 15, an "All Fools Day"
edition, to 325 former University
broadcasting students, both civilian
and servicemen, all over the world.
This newsletter, "A Handbook of
Former U of M Broadcasters," is pub-
lished bi-monthly from Morris Hall,
otherwise known as "Station WMA,
Voice of Culture." Prof. Abbot han-
dled the news which he received in
correspondence from former students
or reports about them in alphabetical
manner this month.
Snakes, Lizards Are Roommates
"See whose name comes first,"
Prof. Abbot said. "Capt. Waldo Ab-
bot, '39, reports from 'somewhere on
the Burma-India front' that his
roommates are snakes and lizards.
The, monsoons have started and so
he is 'down in the mud.' We used to
use that expression for a broadcaster
who swallowed his words," Prof. Ab-
Lt. Ralph Anthony, '41, dropped
into the studio during the past
month. He has been at Harvard,
where he was chosen as one out of
72 to take an accounting course.
When at Michigan, he was in the
University Band, as some of you will
remember, so when he got into the
Navy he formed a band to make life
miserable for some of the Navy men
the way he used to for me."
Armstrong with WJMF
Prof. Abbot noted that "Tom Arm-
strong, '41, is now with WJMF, in
Youngstown, O., where he will be
glad to greet any of you in what he
describes as his beautiful studios-
probably comparing them with Mor-
"Margaret Ayres, '38, is a field rep-
resentative attached to the Detroit
chapter of the American Red Cross."
Prof. Abbot continued, "Mary Bell,
'38, greets me, 'Hiya Pappy.' She is
now recording engineer at NBC and
seems head-over-heels in love with
her job-records for Stokowski and
plays back the recording for him."
"Now students hate to be in the C
grade group-," Prof. Abbot said. "A
V-mail letter is here from Lt. Stanley
Casmer, '40. I think I commented
upon his Christmas card, and he says
that he will send me one next Christ-
mas from Berlin and that I will have
to brush up on my German. I rather
doubt his statement. By next Christ-
mas, there woi't be any Berlin! Stan
is in the infantry in England."
Change of Address Card Received
Prof. Abbot added, "A War Depart-
ment change-of-address card from
Bob Cleary, L'41 (hereafter, 'L' will
stand for 'left University'), tells me
that he has been shifted to a training
group at Lincoln, Neb."

predictable as one of your radio
Prof. Abbot said that Bob Essig,
'44, who always signed himself as
"Assistant to the Assistant to the Di-
rector of Broadcasting," formerly
studio technician, is now cleaning
and scrubbing at Camp Crowder, Mo.
Tells of Hurricane

flew in from the Pacific looking fit
as if it hadn't happened. Ray was on
a destroyer escort at Bougainville and
New Caledonia and now is on his way
to the Sub Chaser School in Miami.
He told of a hurricane upon the so-
called Pacific, which evidently
knocked some weight off him.
"Now I'll give you H-Tom Har-
mon, '41, was in Ann Arbor with his
starlet. He looks fine, was pretty
badly burned getting out of his plane
and hopes to get back into action
In the L's, Prof. Abbot noted that
Sally Levy, '43, is still continuity ed-
itor of WCOP, in Boston, where she
writes scripts, advertising copy, this
and that. "On the air she's known as
'Sal.' He also said that Herbert Lon-
don, '41, turned up in Chicago after
having done Oklahoma, where he was
studying Japanese. His- quarters are
in an armory called 'Pneumonia
Jap Radio Program Heard
Prof. Abbot reporting on a V-mail1
letter from Frederick Nelson, '42,
somewhere in New Guinea, said he
writes that he listens with amuse-
ment to the "Jap Zero Hour," a ra-
dio program broadcast from Tokyo
for the American soldier.
Prof. Abbot continued, "Cpl. Bob
Rinehart, '35-'38, writes from Italy
where he says he is working on the
second floor of an Italian home 'in a
room which still has wallpaper, Sears

least once a month which is quite a
ceremony. I'll probably be moved on
when the next aqua day arrives. I

rooms-inasmuch as a shell decided
to settle down there permanently.'"
On "We, the People"
"Ellen Rothblatt Robin, '39, is run-
ning around the country with "We,
the People.' I missed her in New York
because she was.on the road contin-
uing her battle of the railways."
f"Watch your S's, you broadcast-
ers," the speech prof cautioned. "Ber-
yl Shoenfield, L'41, is evidently in
the Science Service in Washington,
from where she wrote me that she
had come across an application for a
radio license filed by the Washtenaw
Broadcasters, in Ann Arbor.
In conclusion, Prof. Abbot men-
tioned "Jerry Wisner, '37, who said
that he saw Thor Johnson (former
conductor of the University Musical
Society now on leave) in a New York

An illustrated debate between ar-

making up one, and Margaret B.
Carroll, '46E, and Andrew Paledore,

the preference of the audience for
the two blueprints to be described by
the Stump Speakers.
In accordance with the Oxford Un-
ion Forum method of debate the
teams will first present their argu-
ments, and then the audience will
actively participate in the discussion,
quizzing the students on the respec-
tive merits of their domestic plans.
Finally the audience will vote on the
proposed models, thus chosing the
winner of the debate.
