House Committee Still Fights Labor Draft Walcott Lect

ires at



Labor Draft
Still Opposed
By Committee
House 'Sticks to Guns'
In Spite of Demands
Of Armed Services
WASHINGTON, April 21.- (A)-
The House Military Comm. stuck to
its guns today in opposition to Labor
Draft legislation in the face of a
renewed drive by the Army, the Navy,
and the Maritime Commission for a
law to conscript war plant workers.
If anything, the latest plea of the
Armed services as expressed in a
joint statement by Navy Secretary
Knox, War Secretary Stimson and
Maritime Chairman Land solidified
the oft-voiced position of the com-
mittee that National Service Legis-
lation is not the answer to the man-
power problem.
May Announces Stand
"We have spoken and we meant
what we said," declared Representa-
tive May (D-Ky.) chairman of the
conmittee without whose sanction
Service Legislation cannot reach the
House floor.
May referred to a committee re-
port, issued yesterday five hours be-
fore the Army-Navy Maritime state-
ment, asserting there is no need for
legislation and pointing out that ex-
isting law permits Selective Service
and other war agencies to control the
job activities of draft-age men, espe-
cially 4-F0's.
Army Mildly Criticized
The report mildly criticized thfe
Army for what the Committee, said
was a lack of full cooperation in effi-
ciently using manpower under pres-
ent laws.
Even the relatively few committee
members who have insisted on con-
sideration of National Service legis-
lation conceded there is no chance
for action unless the Committee sent-
iment changes drastically.

JAG's Stage
Mock Battles
In Arboretum
Two Platoons Show
Methods of Offensive,
Defensive Maneuvers
The offensive platoon of the 5th
OC Class of the Judge Advocate Gen-
eral's School was charged with a 30
per cent casualty and the defensive
platoon was judged to have a 20
per cent casualty by members of the
Staff and Faculty of the School who
served as umpires of the practice
field maneuvers yesterday afternoon
in the Arboretum.
The 60 members of the 5th OC
Class who will graduate April 29 were
divided into two platoons for the
maneuvers, one unit attacking, the
other setting up the defensive.
Defense Platoon's Shown
The defense platoon demonstrated
the principle involved in the hasty
organization, development and de-
fense of a position. The other pla-
toon carried out the principles and
methods which would be employed by
a rifle platoon in offensive combat.
The two platoons entered the area
by different routes, neither group
knowing the position of the othe
platoon. The defending group upon
being advised that the enemy was
approaching went into assembly area.
made reconnaisance and determined
upon the best area for setting up a
defensive position. They proceeded
to set up a defense which included
weapons common to a rifle platoon
plus attached heavy machine guns.
Scouts Contact Enemy
Those attacking sent out a scout
to contact the enemy and the attack
proceeded. The umpires on either
side observed the action of the troops
and keep score on the number of
men they thought would have been
casualties in ordinary battle.
The umpires throughout the prob-
lem maintained contact with each
other by means of walkie-talkie ra-
In the evening the members of the
5th OC Class had a map problem
which judged their ability to follow
compass readings at night. The class
was divided into parties of three men
each who were given azimuth read-
ings and used compasses to move
from one stake to another one ap-
proximately 350 yards across the Ar-
boretum through dense underbrush
and growth,
Panel on Radio
Education held
A panel discussion on "The Pro
posed FM Radio Network for Edu
cation in Michigan" was held at th
speech department section meetin
at 10 a.m. Friday in the Union.
Speakers were Eugene B. Elliott
state superintendent of public in
struction, who explained the state'
interest in the project; Dr. Joseph
Maddy, professor of radio music in
struction; and Miss Kathleen Lardie
director of radio for the Detroi

agencies to take over," Frederick
Walcott. instructor of English at
University High School, said yester-
day at the morning session of Michi-
gan Council of English Teachers.
Considering the question of "Re-
directing English in the Post-War
World," teachers from high schools
all over the state brought out some
of their more serious problems in an
open discussion.
"We have been teaching formali-
ties and techniques, but the activity
to which these contribute has vir-
tually disappeared," another teacher
The English teachers generally
agreed that their greatest task, and
the one which they had fallen down
on is teaching students to think. It
was recommended that the English
Council find sources of material that
would not only help students to
think, but would pass on to them the
heritage of democracy.
Prof. Williams Speaks
"To be of value in our age, litera-
ture must be revalued," Prof. Mentor
Williams of the English department
declared yesterday at the noon ses-
sion of English teachers.
"The problem of teaching our dem-
ocratic heritage through literature
can be solved if we fulfill our func-
tions as teachers," Prof. Williams said.
1"A heritage worshipped for itself
alone is of no value. We have so far
failed to vitalize our heritage that it
has remained a form. We use it as a
talisman to protect us against evil.
We must recognize that the heritage
isalways modern; it is we, the teach-
rers, who rob it of its value," Prof.
Williams maintained.
In analyzing the problem, he ex-
plained several points of view of our
heritage. "One," he said, "believes
that the basic problem of teachers is
to find the most pertinent expressions
of democracy and to enforce them
with a heil and a farewell. Another
believes that we must go source hunt-
ing. Still another maintains that we
should teach all things, even those
that are opposed to our traditions."
1 Social Studies Conference Held
The central idea stressed at the
Social Studies conference was that
American students should leave the
school system - with some general
understanding of this nation in its
j relationship with the rest of the
Leonard Gerrant of Western State
High School in Kalamazoo pointed
out that the trend in teaching Amer-
ican history in the high schools to-
ward greater emphasis on social and
- economic problems within the coun-
- try and in international relations is
e a step toward the goal. He suggested,
g however, that even stronger stress
should be laid on the solving of the
, practical problems in these fields.

sity, gave the history of rehabilitation
in the speech correction conference,
emphasizing that we have had the
social responsibility to take care of
the disabled since the beginning of
the Christian era, but we lacked any
form of social legislation in this
country until 1904, when Maryland
passed the first Unemployment Com-
pensation law.
Formerly injured American soldiers
received only pensions for their in-
juries. It was not until the first World
War that the policy of rehabilitating
these men was instituted under the
1918 Veteran's Program.

"Any rise in the standard of living

Our increased Merchant Marine

important factor in promoting un-

Dr. Scanio Lectures
A symposium on the instruction of
modern languages was presented by
Dr. Vincent A. Scanio of the Italian
Department, Dr. Warner F. Striedieck
of the German Department, and Dr.
Stuart A. Gallagher of Michigan
State College.
Dr. Scanio stated that modern
languages should be taught in eight
hour courses, in small groups with
the emphasis placed on proper enun-
cation of phrases and words instead
of on nonsense syllables. Outside
assignments should be kept at a
minimum, he said.
Dr. Gallagher said that a study of
a modern language should include a
comparative analysis of the native
language: Such a study should de-
velop logical thinking and apprecia-
tion of the literature of the language
under consideration, he said.

The idea originated with the ICC's L £Ar1,'
decision that they would need fresh Gen. LeRoy Pearson, State Director
vegetables again this summer and of Selective Service, said today that
that they should raise them them- Michigan never stopped drafting men

selves as they did last year. A gar-
den committee, headed by Lotte Hecht
of Palmer House, was set up to decide
what crops would be raised on the
Rudy Haefeli of Owen House, who
runs the truck, was put in charge
of transporting the co-op members
to and from the farm, as well as
bringing back the harvested food in
the fall.
The garden committee had to
decide such questions as when and
how crops should be planted, the
division of food, and the amount of
time to be put in.
Using the Co-op truck, with Rudy
Haefeli or one of his assistants as

over 26 years of age not employed in
"essential" work, and therefore or-
ders issued in other states to resume
drafting of such men would have no
counterpart here.
He explained that "some states
postponed the drafting of all men
over 26 years on April 8, until they
caught up with a backlog of men un-
der that age."
He said there was no need for
Michigan headquarters to change or-
ders to local boards because "in
Michigan we have continued to take
men over 26 years of age unless they
were contributing to the war effort
in some way.'

Mrs. Fried op't Holt Vogan, mem-
ber of the School of Music faculty,

ing two Bach selections, at 4:15 p.m.
tomorrow in Hill Auditorium.
